Individuals holding Venus opposite of Saturn in this chart have the impression that the fault lies with them. They are responsible for the sorry state they are in.

An emphasis is placed on this dreadful feeling by the negligence proven by those that should have been close to them.

This influence can be caused by people who have an important role in their lives: a lack of attention and love from their parents or the opposite, mistreatment and violence.

Other people that they hold in high regard can also cause quite a negative impact on their emotional state if they become judgmental of their every deed.

Due to this, from an early age, this person may have the impression that they do not suffice or reach the global standards, as such they feel they are worthy of such negative emotions, treating it like punishment.

Sometimes they might even avoid the subject altogether. They might rarely risk it and put their time in a long-lasting relationship, but this usually happens with partners that are found wanting, either because of their negative demeanor or because the engagement was for material needs from the start.

Matters involving feelings and affection are usually problematic and forced at best with these people. As such, emotional relations will instead provide exasperation and irritation instead of fulfillment.

It is advised that they learn how to care for themselves and feel deserving of appreciation and affection before caring and loving others. When these people have an unfavorable placement of Saturn in their birth chart, they tend to feel that responsibility comes hand in hand with affection.

Sometimes, because of their emotional disabilities, with their cold state of mind, these people will treat bonds and people with selfish interest rather than kind, unconditional thoughts and feelings and will often manipulate those close to them to achieve what they want.

Ignoring the obvious issues that have been going on can only bring forth more disaster. Realizing they exist and working towards solving them is paramount. Relaxing and enjoying life will be of great help in this situation.
