(part one of two)
by MARY E. ARTHUR
If Venus is the bait; Mars is the trap set and the intentions
of the trapper. It is the hook or the reward. In women, it shows the type
of man she is drawn to and the signals she will send out to lure him to
her. It is the interactions between Venus and Mars that form
the attraction and the actions taken when the relationship begins to develop.

treatment questioned. You are a good and loving provider unusually patient
with those you feel are yours. You hate rivalry of any type, hating to
