Venus Saturn aspects are typically associated with feeling unloved, especially by the father or other symbols of patriarchy. It can also indicate a stern and regimental upbringing where there was a lack of physical affection. In the case of the conjunction, much depends on which planet is the strongest by dignity so it does not always work as a hard or unfortunate aspect.
For example Donald Trump has this conjunction in Cancer where Venus overpowers his Saturn. So glamorous and elaborate Venus almost overcompensates for the restriction of Saturn. Trump’s gaudy taste has gone to town with Venusian luxury and is very far from the traditionally classical and austere Saturn.

Venus Saturn Aspect Meaning
Venus Saturn aspects are serious about aesthetics and often women with these aspects need validation that they are beautiful. These ladies might, for example, enter beauty contests to prove they are not ‘ugly’. Venus attractiveness has Saturn standards!
Donald Trump (who bought the Miss Universe contest in the 1990s) is famous for his glamorous wives and was on the cover of Playboy magazine himself! Melania Trump was also ‘validated’ by posing nude for GQ (Long before she became the first lady.)
Venus Saturn aspect natives work very hard to make money, again this may be to overcompensate for having low self-esteem and to prove to the world they are worth something. Venus is also the planet of money after all.
This combination makes one particularly competitive since the planet Venus wants to be adored above all others. Self-worth and status are tightly connected and this makes the native highly ambitious. These people will work their hardest to get into the VIP lounge, through being the very best in their profession.
If the person themselves considers themselves ugly then they compensate by surrounding themselves with beautiful and high-status individuals. Sometimes Venus Saturn aspects indicates a woman who is attracted to rich older men and of course they may be looking for a father figure if they felt so ignored and unseen as a child. (Especially if Venus is retrograde)
The most negative manifestation of Venus Saturn then is feeling ugly and unlovable. This can cause big problems in relationships where there is constant testing of their lovers commitment. They can unconsciously push their partners away, and act very cold towards them. Sometimes this behaviour results in the picking of partners who give out love, but with strings attached. Proof of love is often demanded, either from the Venus/Saturn native or their partners.
Marriages can fail because the spouse feels so ignored or unappreciated by their Venus Saturn partner. The good news is that love relationships get better with time even with the hard aspects.
If the romance makes it through the testing phase it can age into the very finest vintage. Others will marry late, but remain very happy, unto death!
Some folk with Venus Saturn aspects will spend very little on their appearance and wear clothes until they fall apart. On the other hand, others will spend hours getting ready because they think their looks are offensive to the outside world.
Venus Saturn fears being naked in the world without their protective mask of makeup or expensive suit. Saturn can be their shield against a world that they feel does not value them simply for being themselves.
Venus Saturn in hard aspect can be quite anti-social and live life as a hermit. There may even be a phobia of parties. Sometimes these folk find it really hard to just let their hair down and have fun. Venus conjunction Saturn especially can be either extremely frigid or conversely a sex-pert!
This person can work their way up in society by sleeping with the right person. The casting couch is totally Venus Saturn. There can also be a great fear of intimacy and shyness, but with age, this can be overcome. Once these folk have found ‘the one’ they will stick with them till death and they are very loyal to their beloved. Saturn sticks to love like glue once bonded.
Ugly Ducking To VIP
Madame de Pompadour is a great example of Venus Saturn aspects as she was a courtesan (Venus) who also wielded great authority (Saturn). Madame de Pompadour was the official chief mistress of Louis XV and even served as his trusted adviser. She wielded great influence over affairs of state.
Here we see the successful merging of business (Saturn) with pleasure (Venus.) Pompadour was born poor and common (Saturn) Jeanne Antoinette Poisson and became ‘Madame de Pompadour’. And after becoming the king’s mistress her status (Saturn) was elevated and she was officially made a Duchess.
