Mars is said to be in detriment here according to medieval sources. Because Mars is not liked by Venus, it has difficulty functioning here on the chart's behalf unless it is received. Mars' nature is forceful and direct, but Venus is tactful and refined. As a result, the chart holder may be slowed down by obstacles and limitations, causing them to be slow to act. There is likely to be considerable frustration because Venus is slow to respond to Mars requests. These two planets have much to do with sexual relations, but with Mars placed in this setting there can be jealousy, stubbornness, power and mind games.
