Youtube Debut: GenNext’s Response to Find Your Love in Japan’s “3 Questions A Japanese Guy Has For Black People in the US”

13 May

Hello readers!

This is GenNext letting you all know that I’ve opened a Youtube channel that puts my words to voice!

My Youtube Channel will not replace my blog at all. I feel the blog is more effective when it comes to getting my words across. However, it will be useful when I’m trying to respond to certain topics or when I feel something needs to be expressed vocally.

Lately, my first video posts have been to a Japanese man named Nobita from the Youtube channel Find Your Love in Japan. Several months ago, he posed THREE questions for black people. Being an African American myself, I felt that I needed to respond.

As a warning, his perception of black people isn’t very pleasant. I believe he’s reacting to some hate comments he’s received from prior videos about black people.

Even though I’m just now responding, I do feel that the delay was necessary. I feel that in order to change someone’s perception and to educate people on who you are and what you stand for, you have to think clearly and thoroughly about it.

As with everything I do, it’s lengthy. XD I felt that I needed to go into detail to answer his questions fully.

Here’s his video:

 

Here’s MY response:

My Comments Regarding His Thoughts on Black People and Racism…

 

Question 1: Why are [Black People in the US] So Obsessed with the Past?

 

Question 1 (Part 2): Why are [Black People in the US] So Obsessed with the Past?

* Youtube decided to TAKE DOWN my video. Apparently, defending oneself against other people who mean to incite hatred towards black people is “hate speech”. 

 

Question 2: Why Do [Black People in the US] Avoid Facing Facts?

 

Question 3: Why Do [Black People in the US] Threaten People Who Disagree With [them]? Why Do [Black People in the US] Get Violent?

 

So let me know what you all think about this discussion. If you were able to read and listen, I thank you. You are free to comment and give your thoughts (but of course, I’m free to respond). Open thoughts are welcome!

I may not be able to respond to everyone right away (because of life), but I will eventually get to you, so hold tight!

“An American Girl Story-Melody 1963: Love Has To Win” Disappointed This American Girl Fan

29 Dec

melody-movie

I know. This movie was released two months ago in October 2016, and I am just now giving my review on it. I have my reasons.

For those who don’t know, American Girl is a widely popular doll brand that is known for its historical line of dolls and books, contemporary lines of dolls and books, and baby dolls for toddlers. The historical line is the oldest line in the brand. It has been around since the mid-1980s and it continues to impress upon the minds of little girls even to this day. Parents also love the dolls for their educational value.

Prior to Melody’s movie, four other historical American Girl characters have had movie adaptations produced by WB, HBO Films, and New Line Cinema. The original four movies (made for Samantha, Felicity, Molly, and Kit) were full-length, feature films. Melody’s movie and Maryellen’s movie are short films.

I loved the original four movies a lot. They really brought the characters to life. Of course, American Girl no longer has the budget for those kinds of films anymore, especially since they began focusing more on making new dolls (which is good enough for me).

Now, their movies are made by Amazon and are mostly released through Amazon Prime.

Set in Detroit during the Civil Rights Movement, “An American Girl Story – Melody 1963: Love Has to Win” examines the joyful life and troubled times of an irrepressible 10-year-old African-American girl whose vivid imagination and creativity reinforce her optimism. When shocking national events threaten her sense of security, Melody must find inner strength to restore her hope for a better world.

Director:

Tina Mabry

Writer:

Alison McDonald

Before I begin, I just want to inform new readers that I’ve always been a HUGE American Girl fan since the 1990s. I love toys and I love history. Combine the two, and you have one of my favorite doll franchises. I also want to remind readers that, as an African American, I am very happy that Melody was released. I loved her book series and the doll with her accessories…Just amazing.

But because I’m an American Girl fan and an African American at the same time, I can honestly say….I couldn’t really LOVE this movie. I don’t hate the movie, I just…don’t love it like I was expecting to.

Go ahead and chew me up. Call me self-hating, coon, liar, whatever. But before you decide to stop reading right here, just read me out.

One of the reasons I took so long to write this review was because I honestly wanted people to decide for themselves what they think of Melody’s movie. It was American Girl’s first movie dedicated to an American Girl doll of ‘color’, and I wanted people to mostly think positively. I didn’t want to shatter any dreams or feelings with my thoughts. I want Melody to be as successful as possible because I hope American Girl will continue to make more dolls of color in the future. I bought the movie on Prime because I wanted to encourage American Girl to make more movies with girls of color in lead roles.

I also waited to write this review because I saw how many people actually liked the movie (mostly people who never read Melody’s book series) and I knew they would just chew me up and spit me out for saying anything negative about this movie.

Last, I just really couldn’t find the right words to express how I was feeling. I tried to love this movie. I tried to force it, just because she was a girl of color and because I related to the message. But the American Girl fan in me just couldn’t attach herself to it.

The only reason I decided to share my opinion was because a fan emailed me and asked me.

*The following article may contain some spoilers.

It’s not that this movie was garbage. Far beyond that. In fact, it had its pros. Let me just run down the list of pros I saw.

PROS

The Message

Out of most of the other American Girl movies, Melody’s movie was one of the few that actually talked about a serious issue. The only other American Girls that presented issues that relate to our modern world were Kit (we were in the midst of the recession at the time) and Chrissa (bullying is still very serious). And Melody’s story was much deeper than all of those stories combined because real events were intertwined in the movie (particularly the Birmingham Church bombing).

Melody’s movie was designed to relate to issues young black children are facing today, and honestly, without the 1960s period outfits and references, I could see her being a girl in 2016/2017.

As an African American, I was happy that African American history was being represented by a movie, an American Girl movie at that. American Girl is a popular brand and it means a lot for such a brand to bring attention to girls of color and their struggle for equality.

The movie downsized the events that happened in the books, making the message clearer.

Marsai Martin

Marsai Martin was the actress that played Melody. She brought a lot of fire to Melody’s character (fire that wasn’t really felt in the books). Marsai is an intelligent and bright child herself, and I think she really shined in the movie. She had all the attitude, strength, and intelligence that I loved and that I feel all girls of color share. She had spunk.

Promotional Value

Melody’s movie has brought a lot of attention to the doll itself. Even though Melody has been out since August, a lot of people didn’t hear about her until after the release of the movie. There were many people on facebook inquiring about Melody after this movie was released. Hopefully, this will help Melody sell better than Black dolls prior. If Melody sells well at the end of this year and in 2017, American Girl may consider making more Black dolls in the future. This will shut the mouths of all the people who claim “black dolls don’t sell”.

Educational Value

The movie was educational for all races. For black children, it helped them connect today’s events to past events. This helps them see history as something that’s interesting and a major part of their modern lives.

Children of other races could learn to understand black people better through this story, through a beloved American Girl character.

CONS

Unfortunately, there were quite a few things that disturbed me about this movie. Please, don’t take offense. It’s just my opinion. I really felt there were things that would’ve made the movie better, but you readers are welcome to disagree.

The Cast

I felt everyone did a pretty good job with their acting. My problem was the lack of key characters from Melody’s stories.

Without Melody’s REAL family (and not that small family in the movie), her life felt empty. In comparison to older American Girl movies, her cast was the most butchered and horribly downsized. This made Melody’s family life seem lonely rather than bustling and close-knit, like in her books.

To add, by getting rid of most of the IMPORTANT characters, they left out potential black actors and actresses. Instead, more than half of the cast was WHITE. Not only was this totally opposite Melody’s story (which could’ve boasted an all-black cast), it was completely disappointing that black people still couldn’t get a chance to shine in this movie. There are few black actors and actresses getting screen time as it is. It’s especially rare in children’s films.

Maybe they added different races because they wanted to relate to more races of people, but I felt that using Melody’s real story would’ve related to more people. Melody’s life was similar to how most people lived in the 1960s and all of those 1960s references would’ve been appealing. Why switch it up so much?

They probably wanted to highlight the racism experienced in the 1960s, which was rightfully highlighted, sure. But I feel that racism was tackled well enough in Melody’s story, from an authentic and realistic perspective, and with mostly black people involved, for them to adapt it.

I’m not saying it’s bad to have white people in the movie, and maybe I should be grateful the lead characters were black. But wouldn’t it have been amazing if most of the cast was black? With Melody’s real family highlighted? Maybe that’s just my opinion.

Lately, it’s all about pushing agendas and less about telling the story.

Yes, I know that in American Girl movies prior, some characters were removed from the story. But the key characters were always present or at least mentioned. The family life could be “felt”. Melody’s family in the movie just didn’t feel like her family.

Characters

This is something that really bothered me. As an American Girl fan, and not just an African American, this bothered me a lot.

NONE, and I mean NONE, of the characters really seemed like they came from Melody’s stories. In fact, they all felt like totally new characters from a completely different story. Even Melody really wasn’t Melody.

In the older American Girl movies, all of the characters had the same personalities and interests as the characters in the books. It truly seemed like they brought the characters to life. The movies just weren’t teaching history; they were also telling a story.

Melody in the movie was NOTHING like the girl I grew to know and love in the books. Some people may have liked her better in the movie, but I didn’t. It’s not that Marsai didn’t do a good job with what she was handed, the problem was what she was handed.

Melody has been described as a sweet and hopeful girl. In the books, she was sweet, thoughtful, and caring. In this story, she seemed feistier. In the movie, she was a bit of a know-it-all. Melody wasn’t really a know-it-all kind of character in the books. I think they combined Melody with her sister Lila (who was in the STEM program in the book series, loved to read, and was super intelligent).

Melody was interested in singing (which they got right), but she also loved gardening. In fact, she was gifted with planting. In the movie, they made her more interested in sewing and space (giving her Maryellen’s interests). Gardening was a key part of her character, more than singing in the church choir, and they completely removed it. This was the first time I hardly recognized an American Girl in her own movie. The only thing “Melody” about the character was her outfits. I guess that’s all the doll company cared about when they allowed this movie to be produced.

Another thing that bothered me was the omission of Melody’s siblings. Having Melody’s siblings would’ve taught kids more about the 1960s. I understand that this was a short film, but somehow, in Maryellen’s short film (a movie for the strawberry blonde character from the 1950s) they managed to bring most of Maryellen’s siblings into her story. Why not in Melody’s? The Baby Boom was still in full swing in the 1960s. It would’ve made sense for Melody to have more siblings.

Dwayne and Yvonne did much more to add to Melody’s life than did Maryellen’s siblings, and yet Melody’s family was omitted.

music-in-the-movie

I felt cheated because I played this “quiz” on Americangirl.com that told me songs from the book would be in the movie. These songs were “written” and “composed” by Melody’s brother in the book series, so I thought he would be in the movie. I didn’t really hear all the songs in the movie, but even if I had, I would’ve been more upset. Dwayne influenced Melody’s music interests so much, it just didn’t feel right to keep him out. He would’ve showed the new generation how black people influenced modern-day music through his affiliations with Motown. He could have represented that part of history that is unknown to the new generation, but a part of history that influences them even today.

Yvonne was a particularly empowering young woman. Her role in the book series was really interesting. First off, she was the first in her family to wear her hair all-natural (an afro). She was a real civil rights activist (not just a participant). She went to college, she risked her life to educate people in the south, and she marched on Washington with thousands of people just to hear Martin Luther King give his most famous speech. I was torn to bits when there wasn’t anyone in the movie to represent her.

Yes, I know American Girl is on a budget. They can’t make their movies too long, with too many people. But I would’ve rather had Yvonne than any of those brats in Melody’s (fake) classroom. Again, how was Maryellen able to get away with having most of her siblings, but Melody’s movie had to succumb to the budget?

Finally, I want to talk about Melody’s mom. I’m happy that she was a hard-working African American woman and that her role revealed the struggle African Americans experienced in the USA. However, I found Melody’s mother to be more empowering and more authentic in the book series than in the movie. In the book series, Melody’s mother wasn’t a struggling seamstress working for racist white people. She was an educated, black teacher, teaching at an all-black school. Melody’s mother graduated from Tuskegee. The movie sort of combined Addy’s mom with Melody’s (maybe to make up for the fact that American Girl, LLC has overlooked Addy as a potential for a good movie all of these years). I was not pleased with this.

I feel that Melody’s mother was over-dramatized in the movie. The book series was more authentic. Maybe it felt more authentic because the panel that worked on the books lived and understood that time period. Maybe it felt more authentic because my own grandmother and her friends had gone to school and became teachers in the 1960s. When I read it in Melody’s stories, I immediately connected with Melody’s mother. But the movie was dramatically trying to show us a racist society. While they did that, they took away Mrs. Ellison’s strengths. Even though the 1960s was a harsh time for African Americans, many were educated by then, many were successful, and many lived comfortably, especially in the North.

I would’ve liked to see Cousin Tish’s salon brought in the movie and I’m still crossing my fingers for the playset in the future.

I also wanted to see Big Momma, one of the most important figures in Melody’s life. She is the one that taught Melody how to sing!

Melody’s friends barely appeared in the movie, and when they did, they were mean little brats. They weren’t supportive like they were in the books.

So much was missing from the movie because the key characters that shaped Melody’s life in the books were not there.

The Story

In the older American Girl movies, the stories were flipped, butchered, and changed around. Scenes were added and scenes were taken out. However, the heart and inspiration was clearly evident. Key important events were not taken out.

For example, Molly’s struggle with her hair was taken out of Molly: An American Girl on the Homefront. However, Molly getting the role as Miss Victory, the most important part of her Changes for Molly book, was in the movie.

There are more examples I could name, but the point is most of the older movies brought the important events from the book series to life.

The new Melody movie was so focused on pushing agendas and highlighting modern-day issues, it failed to actually tell Melody’s stories. Melody was used as a tool to tell an entirely different story unrelated to the released American Girl. And that’s fine. But I watched the movie looking for one of my favorite characters to come to life on screen. I was disappointed when I found I was being introduced to a completely different story with a completely different character in Melody’s wardrobe.

First issue, none of the events in the movie happened in the book. Melody never went to an all-white school in the book series. She attended an all-black school. Her school provided encouragement and support to the students, especially when it came to combating racism. In the books, when the church bombing happened, her teacher talked to the students to console them. Melody’s friends were there for her when she was frightened by the events.

Melody’s reaction to the bombing was different, too. In the movie, she was angry and bold. She posted clippings about events in her all-white school. In the book series, it hit her much deeper. It struck fear in her. It made her afraid to walk in her own church. That felt more realistic, considering she was 9 years old. These different reactions revealed that the two girls were actually TWO DIFFERENT characters. They didn’t react the same to situations, they didn’t have the same personalities. To me, they are two different “Melodys”.

I know the new story relates better to modern black girls. But I feel that they cheated Melody and spent less money on her movie than movies prior. I feel that her stories were butchered the most out of any of the other American Girl characters. And because of that, I don’t feel Melody’s story was really told.

Authenticity and Realism

While some modern day African Americans may find the movie to be more realistic, especially in relation to today’s events and some major occurrences in the past, I found the book series to tackle the Civil Rights Era in a more authentic and realistic fashion overall.

Considering the book series was meant to be told from the perspective of the average 9 year old, living in Detroit in the NORTH during the 1960s, the book series relates more to the real African American story. In the book series, there were many cases of racism in stores, when trying to buy property, or when trying to fix up black neighborhoods. But most black people lived in all-black neighborhoods in nice brick houses. Most children attended all-black schools. Most black families were close-knit. Families were large because of the Baby Boom. The book series had a naturalness to it that felt more authentic.

The movie was definitely what happens when “Hollywood” gets hold of something. With Hollywood taking hold of Melody’s story, everything became more dramatic. Racism and oppression became key themes, but strength, optimism, community, and hope were not added as themes as they were in the books. Especially not the community involvement.

I wish that theme had been brought out because I don’t feel enough African Americans are encouraged to get involved in their own communities. Some have given up hope that they can do anything to make a difference. I really hoped that there would be emphasis on community involvement and I was let down there.

Maybe these things don’t bother most viewers and American Girl fans, and I wouldn’t say it made me hate the movie. But I definitely felt disappointed and didn’t really have the same overwhelming happy feeling so many other people had after watching it. It was decent for a kids’ movie, but it just didn’t live up to former American Girl movies.

After this, I barely wanted to watch Maryellen’s movie. I was afraid it would also be butchered, and if it wasn’t, I would be mad that Maryellen’s movie was closer to her true series and Melody’s wasn’t. So far, I’m not a fan of the move to Amazon Prime. The movies are short, I don’t like paying for Prime just to watch these movies, and I would rather have a hard copy, like I did with other American Girl movies.

Anyway, sorry to be negative about this. I still love Melody and I still support American Girl bringing attention to dolls of color in the future. I’m just not a huge fan of this movie. I don’t think this movie really catered to the fan base and mostly catered to newcomers to the brand.

Leave me a comment and let me know what you think about the movie. Do you think I’m being too petty about it? I am one of those people that can’t read the book series and fully enjoy loose adaptations. XD Do you agree with me? Are there any points you appreciated about the movie? Anything you disliked? Please share.

If you haven’t read the books and don’t plan on reading them, I think this movie would be good to watch. If you’ve already read Melody’s series, tread with caution and remember that this movie is a pretty loose adaptation.

Cardcaptor Sakura: Sakura and Syaoran’s Natal Profiles

19 Dec

Ever since I heard about the Cardcaptor Sakura sequel, the Clear Card arc, I’ve been binge watching the Cardcaptor Sakura anime and re-reading the original manga to refresh my memory while I tackle the new Chapter in Sakura’s life.

carcaptors-sakura-anime

As I’ve been going through the manga and anime, I’ve been interested in the birthday profiles of Sakura Kinomoto and Syaoran Li. Their relationships with other characters (as well as with one another) have always been of interest to me (especially after reading Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles and xxxHolic), but after analyzing their birthdays, I’ve come to realize even more details about these two characters and their relationships with others.

This is an astrological reading. To learn about their planets and signs, I had to retrieve a natal chart or birth chart. To learn more: How Can I Learn More About Zodiac Signs and Aspects?

How did I deduce the year they were born? Well, I started with Toya Kinomoto, Sakura’s older brother, as I’ve seen many fans online do to calculate the year. He is said to have been born on a leap year day: February 29. The only way it would be possible to have been born on a leap year day, and still be in his late teens in the 1990s, he would have to have been born in 1980. Sakura is 7 years younger than him; her year must be 1987. It is implied that Syaoran is a year older than Sakura; his year must be 1986.

Keeping this in mind, it makes perfect sense why certain events unfolded the way they did.

Unfortunately, I don’t have a birth time for either character. But a rectification isn’t totally impossible, considering there are plenty of events to analyze. Still, rectifications are less accurate. I will be updating this article as more information is revealed. * So far, what I have are their birthdates and years, which is enough to interpret planets in signs and aspects.

The following interpretations may contain spoilers. Most of the interpretations will make sense only to CCS fans anyway.

When a planet is exalted, it is an “honored guest” within the sign, bringing benefits easily from the planetary energy to the person, but only if they work hard and take full advantage of their opportunities, not taking any of it for granted. The planet receives strength and energy when in the sign of its exaltation. This often creates an exaggerated expression. (Example: When someone has Venus in Pisces, Venus is exalted. The person has a naturally charming, sweet, and loving personality, so they easily draw admirers and lovers to them. They have to work hard to maintain a stable relationship and figure out who is “the right one” among all their suitors. Pisces’s sweet and dreamy nature makes these individuals the ultimate romantics and appreciators of beauty. This gives Venus strength. These individuals have a natural quiet spirit, which creates the peace that Venus wants, and their ability to go with the flow allows them to enjoy pleasures without limit. There are enough resources for Venus to borrow from.)

When a planet is in domicile, it is at home. It is in its strongest and safest position here. The person can fully utilize the planetary power, easily expressing and understanding the nature of the planetary energy without hesitation or question. They must be cautious when using their power. They must never overuse or abuse this power. (Example: When someone has Venus in Libra, Venus is at home. That person will fully understand the mental power of love and know how to use their own charms to get what they desire. They never hesitate to express love and fully understand their own feelings without being told by someone else how they feel. They also understand others’ feelings of love. If they want to, they can abuse this power by being deceitful and manipulative. They must be careful not to do this. When Venus is in Libra, Venus is safe enough to express love freely. Libra is a partner oriented, peace-loving, and sensual sign. Venus has plenty of resources to borrow from. If these individuals want to, they can easily tap into these energies. They have no problem or shame feeling like they need a lover in their lives, lazing around with nothing better to do, and accommodating to others.)

When a planet is in a falling state, the people with this often have a hard time getting what they want from the planet in usual terms. They often have to work harder than most to overcome fear and insecurity to get what they want. The planet loses its strength and influence in the sign of its fall. This is often looked at as the planet entering a “foreign country”. (Example: When Venus is in Virgo, Venus is in a falling state. The people with this placement have a hard time finding the right lovers to appease their exacting taste. They do not easily fall in love. This sets the standards high for others, but it also means Venus in Virgo people will have to put in overtime if they ever expect to find someone suitable. They must overcome a simple distrust with love. Virgo’s exacting and practical nature takes away Venus’s strength and influence. There aren’t enough resources in Virgo, a critical and analytical sign, for Venus to spread love and pleasure.  Venus has to make it work. The individuals with this placement have to set aside their “critical” thoughts, and tap into their natural earthy senses a little more. They may need help from others so that they can just relax and take it easy.)

When a planet is in a detrimental state, the people with this position have to find unique ways to harness the planetary energy. They often have a unique point of view regarding the planetary energy, bringing new strengths but plenty of challenges in their lives because their expression doesn’t align with convention and makes others uncomfortable. They are often misunderstood. This is often looked at as the planet being in an “enemy’s” home. (Example: Venus is in detriment in Aries. When someone has this placement, they don’t see love the same way most people do. In fact, they often can’t separate love, passion, admiration, and lust from one another. Thus, they seem to fall in love with the first nice and attractive figure in their lives. These people have learned to get along without a whole lot of love in their lives, thus they are quite independent. Merging with another is a very challenging task for them and settling down may be the scariest thing for them to do. They often worry so much about being liked they don’t consider their partner’s feelings. Their feelings are often misunderstood as a result. Aries is ruled by Mars, Venus’s natural opposite. Venus is the planet of peace; Mars is the planet of war. Venus is a feminine planet; Mars is a masculine planet. Venus is sensual and lazy; Mars is rough and active. They don’t mix easily. There are few resources Venus can use to spread love and pleasure when in the sign of detriment. The individuals with this placement have to fight to remain committed in relationships, to accommodate to others, and to keep the peace at all costs without letting selfishness or impatience get in the way.)

Conjunct aspect is powerful. It is usually when two planets blend. They are usually in the same sign because it means the two planets are near one another on a natal chart.

Trine aspect is usually when two planets flow easily together. They are usually two planets in signs of the same element (fire, earth, water, air) because they usually form an exact “triangle” on a natal chart.

Sextile aspect is usually when one planet mildly supports the other. They are usually two planets in signs that share the same energy (introverted/extroverted, yin/yang, feminine/masculine, etc) but are NOT in opposite signs on the natal wheel. Earth and Water signs share the same energy, and fire and air signs share the same energy. The sextile planets are normally two houses apart on the natal chart (Houses are something I can’t introduce just yet, without a birth time).

Square aspect is usually when when planet produces conflict for another and vice versa. They are usually two planets in signs of the same mode (cardinal, fixed, mutable) but have opposite energies (earth and water (yin) have opposite energies from fire and air (yang)). In this case, they may have a similar style of achieving goals, but their goals differ. On a natal chart, when two planets form the aspect, it usually shows the beginning of a square. If all four signs of the same mode form this aspect, it will make the shape of a solid red square on the natal chart.

Opposition is powerful. It is usually when two planets are in opposite signs on the natal wheel (or very close to it). One planet is pulling the individual away from the other. Opposite signs are normally the same mode (cardinal, fixed, mutable), with the same energy (Yin/Yang), but opposite elements (fire and air are opposite elements, earth and water are opposite elements). In this case, they are just alike in behavior, but have different goals. On the natal chart, one line forms from one end of the natal chart directly to the other (North to south, east to west).

Sakura Kinomoto

Sun in Aries (Exalted)

Your entourage (Note: Sakura’s entourage is none other than Tomoyo, Kero, and Syaoran. 😛 ) is amazed by your energy, your courage and your boldness. Your reactions are quick, even instantaneous. Your enthusiasm prompts you to follow your natural impulses, even though you are not aware of all the consequences of your actions. Above all, you want to live each moment intensely, without fearing the future. Your enterprising spirit is supported by an acute sense of confrontation. Present! This is Aries answering the call. Any call, provided that there is some degree of new-ness or some challenge. If Aries’ dynamism and enterprising spirit are underlined, it is because the sign is more inclined to commit itself in the present and to start from scratch. This ability to take action on the spot in response to any stimulation also applies to the area of your relationships: you say outloud what you deem necessary to say, even if it means foolishly upsetting several persons. It is black or white, yes or no… often without balance! Beginning and undertaking are situations where you feel that you are in your element. Your qualities can also be expressed when you are bogged down in inextricable and complicated relationships: you know how to simplify things but you should beware not to do so in a caricatured manner.

AlwaysAstrology

Aries, you’re the first sign in the zodiac, the astrological newborn. As the first sign, you don’t have any of the baggage that the other signs carry, allowing you to approach everything in life with enthusiasm. You’re attracted to anything new, and you’re constantly pursuing things, always excited about whatever new trail you’re blazing, and you bring your enthusiasm with you. Not jaded like the other signs can be, your positive outlook keeps your from getting stuck in any bad moods for very long. You love to smile, laugh, and enjoy yourself, and you value your independence. You don’t want to rely on anyone else to get things done or make you happy. You’re perfectly capable of doing that on your own, and you want to. Once you decide to do something, you get to it quickly without much thought or planning, and since you really only like the adrenaline rush of the beginning, you get bored easily, becoming impatient when things don’t happen the way you want right away, and you have trouble seeing things through. You’re the type who starts a million projects but never finishes any of them. If you could learn a little discipline, it would take you far. You have plenty of energy to do whatever you want to do, so you don’t have to worry about that, but if you don’t have enough to do, you get restless, agitated, and prone to accidents, so it’s important for you to be physically active and keep a busy schedule. Most others might suffer a total collapse from the kind of schedule you need, but they don’t have the abundant energy that you have. Harness your energy so it’s not all over the place with no direction. When it has something to focus on, you’ll be able to do incredible things. You’re the pioneer of the zodiac, Aries, the one who can go where no one else has gone before, and you do so with a smile on your face and excitement in your soul that’s hard to match, squash, or not be in awe of.

Aries Sun (Dominant Parental Figures in Life-Father, Older Siblings, Guidance Counselors, Teachers, Female Leaders of Family, etc):If your Sun is in Aries, then your Sun parent (could also be the female head of the household) may have appeared to be in constant motion to you. He/she most likely enjoyed sports and could even have coached you in Little League or soccer if you showed an interest and aptitude in these activities. He/she probably seemed to be more interested in an active relationship than in long discussions on the origins of man. He/she might have been impatient with you and sometimes a little short-tempered. Tagging along with him/her on errands or bike rides would probably have been the best way of getting his/her attention.  If you have the sun in Aries, your relation to your Sun parent is active and impatient. It’s probably mutual. You may not talk much, but you enjoy doing things together – and challenging each other. When you talk, it’s often in an argument, but you rarely stay angry with each other for long.

Sakura is mostly described as cheerful and energetic, very descriptive of her sun sign energy. Sun in Aries are also known to be active and athletic. They are outgoing, enthusiastic, positive people. Sakura fits the bill. The Sun is exalted in Aries because the star is able to shine in a positive way in the fiery sign. This is probably why Sakura’s personal power is that of the “stars”. Even though it’s a faint light at first (and she has to work hard to grow her strength), she is able to be most effective with the power of the stars. She is a good leader, courageous, and somewhat impulsive (which is why she’s clumsy).

Unfortunately, Sakura can be a little preoccupied with herself and often forgets to analyze the feelings and thoughts of those around her. This is usual of someone with Sun in Aries.

With Sun in Aries, males are usually the most dominant figure in the child’s life (Mars, the ruler of Aries, being the other masculine planet). It’s not surprising that Sakura lives in a house full of males. It’s also not surprising that Sakura gets her athletic abilities from her father. All of of the males in her household are athletic.

With your natal Sun conjunct your natal Jupiter in Aries, you tend to be a positive person with energy and enthusiasm. You try to see the upside of situations and people, and you believe that everything will always work out for you. That might actually be true, with it seeming like you have great luck, and someone is always there to clean up your mess, but eventually, the gambling with life catches up with you if you’re not careful. If you can be more careful, you can accomplish a great deal in your life.

This is probably the reason for Sakura’s invincible spell “I will surely be alright”. And Sakura does seem pretty lucky most of the time, just relying on that spell alone. She certainly got lucky during the Final Judgment. This aspect intensifies her positivity.

With your natal Sun square or opposite your natal Neptune in Capricorn, you want to feel or experience something extraordinary. Your early life lacked a father or father figure, lacked rules or support, or didn’t help you form your own identity. You have to watch for being attracted to all of the wrong people. You can be self-destructive or escapist. You’re sensitive and bruise like a peach, and need to forge a stronger connection to reality.

Her sense of a “father figure” is probably because her own father decided to take on a nurturing role in her life. All of the things regarding her father is also a great mystery, so she doesn’t feel she really knows him. This aspect can also signify a father figure who doesn’t know much about himself. In Sakura’s case, this is true. Fujitaka has expressed that he didn’t know his own family (manga) or even where he was born.

Clearly, there are very few rules in Sakura’s household. She doesn’t get punished very often by her father, either.

It’s easy to see that Sakura can be attracted to all sorts of people, even people that Syaoran or others’ around her distrust. It’s not hard to see her being attracted to the wrong people.

Analyzing Mars’s sign would give more clarity to this interpretation.

sakura-aries

Sun in Aries is energetic and enthusiastic (and often athletic)

Moon in Taurus (Exalted)

On the day and at the time of your birth, the Moon was in the sign of Taurus. Traditionally, the Moon is in exaltation in this sign: lunar values (quietness, rest, trust) find their complementary landmarks in Taurus… self-defense, need for stability and selectiveness. Your sensuality is strong and expresses itself in all life areas. You equally enjoy the pleasures of the senses and those of the mind and you never waste a single bit of a sensation. You take the time to enjoy life, to dream and to follow your imagination. You do not allow anything to disturb these moments of relaxation and calm. Your basic balance stems from these privileged moments where you can daydream at will and “have your head in the clouds”. Nothing bothers you, no external element disrupts the quiet course of your rest. Should anyone dare to break the charm, you become very upset…

Having your Moon in Taurus can make you very emotionally stable, and you’re not one to swing from mood to mood quickly, easily, or routinely. You tend to believe in the “happy medium” thing (XD). The downfall can be a lack of intensity when the moment requires it, especially in situations where you need to react quickly. You try to make situations work for you by squeezing as much time as you can to allow yourself to slowly and deliberately go over things. You don’t take anything too lightly, or too seriously. You’re very sensual, and you love to get in touch with your senses, stimulating each one to allow yourself to feel most in tune with yourself and the earth. You probably like nature (even if you aren’t the camping type, perhaps you like awesome views or are an environmentalist). When you don’t feel so great, you may be prone to overindulging in your senses, usually with food.. If you find yourself swaying one way emotionally, you can get stuck there, so often Taurus Moon natives who suffer from emotional/psychological problems will get stuck in them for much longer periods of time than most (especially if you have other indicators in your chart, like a lot of Virgo or water).

Dark Pixie

Nurturing Parental Figures in Life (Mother, Female Influences, Teachers, Guidance Counselors, Father, Grandparents, Older Siblings): Consistency could be your Moon in Taurus parent’s middle name. You sometimes feel that this parent was predictable to the point of being dull. You could guess what supper would be by the day of the week, and you could count on having the house cleaning and laundry done on schedule. Just when you were sure you had this parent figured out, he or she would throw you a curve, forcing you to rethink your relationship. The rules that seemed comfortable and flexible suddenly became rigid when you crossed the line. The Taurus Moon person didn’t intentionally spring new things on you, far from it. You knew the rules all along. You just didn’t know that your normally appreciative parent would crack down so hard. Your Taurus Moon parent appreciates value. This means that clothing had to be durable first, then attractive. You were not encouraged to wear frills, and probably everything tended to coordinate, except for dress up attire, which may have been distinguished. Whether father or mother, your Taurus Moon parent helped you through the toughest crises, and still does. This parent may experience serious ups and downs in life, not only financial, but also regarding career, health, or other matters. He or she knows how to handle difficult turns of events, and can teach you a lot about managing your life. You perceived your Moon parent (or father, if he played a nurturing role in the home) as emotionally strong and devoted. The parent was practical, calm, and security conscious.

Sakura’s life experience is filled with sensuality. From beautiful clothing, sweets, to a warm cozy home, she experiences nothing but positive memories from those she cares about. This is what happens when the Moon is exalted in Taurus. She’s pretty sheltered from negative memories, especially regarding her birth mother. This is probably why she hardly experiences negative emotions and harsh mood swings. Her life is stable; she’s mentally and emotionally stable.

Moon rules the mother and the mother’s side of the family. Very material, the Moon in Taurus often refers to a very comfortable living background, and in some cases even wealth! It’s not surprising that Sakura’s mother was the daughter of a wealthy man. Taurus is also ruled by Venus, the planet of love and beauty, and Sakura’s mother wasn’t just a loving and sweet figure, but also a beautiful model. Of course, the moon rules our perception of our mother. And again, Sakura is told mostly the beautiful memories regarding her mother.

Sakura has other “mother” figures that reflect her moon sign. Tomoyo, her best friend, acts as a mother figure, protecting Sakura, providing sensual glories such as sweets and fashionable (but gaudy) costumes. She’s also wealthy and beautiful. Mizuki Sensei also is beautiful and caring, providing assistance to Sakura. Most of the women in Sakura’s life are wealthy and opulent.

Sakura’s father plays a very nurturing Moon in Taurus role in Sakura’s life as well. He provides a warm, comfortable home for his family, as well as good cooking and more sweets!

Unfortunately, while these people are all very caring and loving to Sakura, they prefer to hide her from the ugly truths in life, which makes her naive and lack understanding of those with a deeper history.

With your natal Moon square or opposite natal Pluto, when you get hurt, it hurts deep. You’re terrified of being hurt, yet you crave intimacy. You can find yourself alone a lot because you’re too scared to be close to people, but you’re not satisfied alone either. You can be an intimidating person, overly controlling, and downright scary to others with your powerful personality. When angry, you can become enraged. You hold grudges for far too long, and have a hard time forgiving anyone for even the slightest of things. If you could learn to control your emotions and learn how to use them productively, you can be a force.

I think the Snow Card and Kero have realized this about Sakura. XD Her temper can be ferocious once activated. Fortunately, her Moon is in Taurus, so she’s likely not to get into that mode very often. But when she does…

Moon opposition Pluto could also signify the death of a mother or mother figure in certain charts as well.

With your natal Moon sextile or trine natal Mercury in Pisces, you don’t have any problem conversing with people, saying what you need to say, or giving advice. You’re a good listener and try to be nonjudgmental. You can merge your head and heart more easily than the rest of us, and you want to know what people have to tell you.

With your natal Moon sextile or trine natal Neptune in Capricorn, you’re a compassionate person who wants to help others however you can, and always seem to know what other people are feeling. Your imagination is active and you need a certain amount of time away from the real world. You have excellent intuition. You may have a hard time actively pursuing your goals, and have to cultivate that trait.

Analyzing Venus’s sign would give more clarity to this interpretation.

sakura-taurus

Moon in Taurus needs the simple luxuries, especially good food.

Mercury in Pisces (Fall and Detriment)

In your chart, Mercury is in Pisces. You are connected to the world through your intuition. Contacts are established, and broken up, according to your sensitivity (Note: Yeah, like how she dreams about everyone before she meets them…). Your perceptiveness is amazing. You soak into your environment in order to grasp its subtle games and you feel that you know things without learning them. You assimilate them unconsciously and you very sharply pick up hints and unformulated thoughts. Some sort of sixth sense.

With your natal Mercury in Pisces, you’re more of a listener than a talker. You don’t mind having a conversation with someone, but it all depends on whether you’re in the mood for it or not. You can be a people pleaser and say what you think people want you to say. You have an active imagination, and love to daydream. You take in information from the world around you through feelings and emotions. This allows you to see things in a way that’s different from everyone else. You’re open, and listen to your gut, but can have a hard time expressing yourself directly. You need to learn to not worry about what other people want to hear so much.

Mercury in Pisces is revealing that Sakura will have many moments dreaming. Many of these dreams are premonitions that tell of the future. Unfortunately, Mercury is falling and in detriment in Pisces. This means that she can’t always share her visions and intuitions with everyone. Most of it hardly makes sense, even to herself. And most of the times, it will make her appear ditzy and cloudy. But she’s probably much more aware than others think. She is aware of things others’ can’t see (like Clow cards, spirits, ghosts, magic, etc). On the other hand, as a result of being so in touch with the spiritual world, she misses what’s going on around her in the everyday world (Syaoran’s feelings, her baton practice, classroom literature, etc)

Mercury in Pisces makes the mind cloudy. It’s hard for them to process information in a logical fashion and then express it to others. This is because they can’t always explain how they know something; they just do (such as her instant love of Mizuki Sensei). Their way of gathering information is not always just from reading books, but from experiencing and observing the world around them. Sure, this makes them appear like they’re not paying attention, but they are paying attention, just to the information that isn’t before them.

This cloudiness is also the reason Sakura isn’t so good at math. Math is a logical subject. You would have to pay close attention to remember the steps. Most times, there is one concrete answer. Mercury in Pisces have a hard time paying attention to each step, and they don’t like subjects that aren’t abstract, that don’t offer many different answers for all questions. Being a Mercury in Pisces is probably why her other favorite subject is music. Mercury in Pisces learn best with music and art, tapping into their imagination.

With your natal Mercury sextile or trine your natal Pluto in Scorpio, you can come up with solutions to almost any problem because you try to get to the heart of the matter right away. There’s a magnetic power to your communications. You’re good at analyzing information, and once you figure yourself out, you won’t feel the need to be mysterious.

With your natal Mercury conjunct natal Venus in Pisces, you have a charming way of expressing yourself. You come across well, always trying to say the right thing, being graceful and gracious, and trying to get people to get along. You crave balance and fairness, and are a good communicator. You may be too rational in your approach to love, or are drawn to intellectual people.

With your natal Mercury square or opposite your natal Saturn in Sagittarius, you seem harsh in your communications. You can be overly negative and can push people away. There can be a sense of not being worthy of goodness, and you can be incredibly insecure. You can be a hard worker in school and professionally because you fear not being good enough. You have to be easier on yourself.

I think Sakura works really hard to develop the mental discipline for the Clow Cards. Mercury being in Pisces, this discipline wouldn’t necessarily apply to factual or analytical pursuits, like school. In fact, the square could also indicate that she finds it challenging to develop the discipline necessary for subjects she’s not interested in.

With your natal Mercury sextile or trine your natal Neptune in Capricorn, you can sense what people are thinking and feeling, and this helps you to know how to react to them. You’re sensitive to others, charismatic in your communications, and appreciate the arts. You can be spiritual and drawn to the metaphysical.

This is probably the essence of the whole story. This softens her Mercury aspect to Saturn.

Analyzing Jupiter’s and Neptune’s signs would give more clarity to this interpretation.

sakura-pisces

Mercury in Pisces often listens to their gut and rely on their perceptive sense to get through life.

Venus in Pisces (Exalted)

Venus describes your affective life. On the day of your birth, she is found in Pisces. Your emotionalism is very strong and very unusual. You have your own manner to experience your emotions and your sensations, in an atmosphere that may be odd, you complicate your amorous life (Note: XD )… and this is part of your charm, at the same time. On the chessboard of your sentimental life, quite strange games enfold. Your affectivity is subtle, fabulous and unusual: love reinvents everything and anything becomes possible when your heart is sincere. You dream of a complete fusion and of giving yourself totally. No rules, no moral or social code is more important than the feeling of shared passion and than living for your partner. Your affective life is complex, sometimes mysterious: you don’t know why you love, or why you don’t love any more… Your sentimental life obeys a different logic than that of the external world. Love is elusive and fragile. Nothing is easier than to destroy a feeling and to forget a passion. Your sensitivity responds to an unknown call, a strange signal. Therefore, you may shift from intense and absolute feelings to cruel indifference. Although you don’t know why, you are being transformed. The most difficult thing is to love a real being and not a shadow (Note: I think Yukito was that “shadow”). You give yourself to persons who can understand and respect the fragile realm of your affectivity.

With your natal Venus in Pisces, you’re the ultimate romantic. You’re sensitive in love, and with everyone else. You can be attracted to people who need to be saved, or who want to save you, and it can lead you to be in bad relationships with people who cause more harm than good. You see the good in everyone, even the people that are the worst of the worst, and need to be more discriminating in love. You can be unreliable at times, having a hard time being dedicated to anything with your partner, despite how much you may love them. It can be hard for you to commit as you have a hard time sifting through your feelings or figuring out where you should be going together. You accept people for who they are, and are understanding and loving.

Venus is exalted in Pisces, blessing Sakura with charm, a sweet demeanor, cuteness, and compassion. Everybody loves Sakura; the exaltation reveals this. One of the main reasons everybody loves this girl is because she loves everybody. That is the Venus in Pisces secret. They never start off hating or being irritated by anyone. They assume the best in everyone they meet. It is only when they are seriously hurt do they act cold and cruel. Most of the time, though, they put a lot of faith in the ones they love and in love itself.

Unfortunately, this can make them seem a little idealistic and naive when it comes to affections. They even have a difficult time rummaging through their own feelings. Sakura experienced this in her own story. Because Venus in Pisces love everybody, and everybody loves them, it’s hard for them to know who they really are in love with romantically.

Most Venus in Pisces like the “idea” of love more than being in love, and they like being in love with distant figures. Truly, they don’t often understand real love. The real thing can often be scary for them. Real love requires a certain level of commitment and it pushes them to face reality. I think Sakura felt that when she received a confession from an unexpected friend, a friend she didn’t necessarily “idealize”, but someone she had to admit was there for her whenever she needed him.

Venus is also the planet of beauty and Sakura is said to look good in anything (by Tomoyo’s standard). With Venus in Pisces, style is translucent. The people are able to translate anything into art and style. Generally, they aren’t too particular about what they will or won’t wear.

With your natal Venus sextile or trine natal Pluto in Scorpio, you can see right through people and situations. You know how to use resources well, and gravitate towards relationships that allow you to transform yourself. You’re passionate without being overwhelming, and know how to sway people to your side.

With your natal Venus sextile or trine your natal Neptune in Capricorn, you have a gentleness to you, are charming, and can express yourself creatively. You have an active imagination and want everything in the world to be beautiful. You’re a generous person, though you may give too much at times.

Analyzing Jupiter’s and Neptune’s signs would give more clarity to this interpretation.

sakura-pisces-2

Venus in Pisces often has a hard time sorting through their feelings, but they are kind to everyone

Mars in Taurus (Detriment)

The planet Mars indicates how you react to life concrete stimulations. It also describes your fighting spirit, your abilities to stand for yourself and to take action. With Mars in Taurus, your will is strong and you are a very efficient person, persevering and tenacious. When you are prompted by your instinct to undertake any given step, no obstacle can put you off. However, your reactions are not unconsidered: you thoroughly ponder over and over before taking action. But it is hard for you to let go. This planetary configuration endows you with an extraordinary steadfastness. The other side of the coin: tenacity may turn into stubbornness. It is important that you control this strength and that you display more flexibility. It is good to persevere in one’s efforts, but not in one’s errors.

With your natal Mars in Taurus, you take your time with everything, and no one can get you to hurry. You don’t see the point in rushing anything, and feel that everything will happen in its own time. If that’s not fast, that’s fine with you. You can formulate goals and work hard at achieving them, and you’ll stick with them no matter what happens. You don’t give up easily once you’ve decided on what you want. (Note: I think the Snow Card found this out the hard way…) You’re loyal, stable, and crave security in your life, and may buy a lot of nice things to surround yourself with items of value. You can be stubborn once you make up your mind, and there’s no convincing you to change your mind, even if deep down you know that you should. You do things in your own time, and won’t change for anyone.

Mars in Taurus is considered in detriment. This is not because they are weak or because they are not brave. It is mostly because Mars in Taurus is a sign of security and is ruled by Venus, the planet of love, beauty, and peace. They don’t like to fight aggressively without a purpose. This means nothing makes them more courageous than fighting for the people and things they love. In this case, they are mostly possessive.

Mars in Taurus, being in the sign of security, just don’t blindly jump in the fire. They carefully consider all at stake. To many, they don’t seem to act when they should, but many times they act right when they should because they are careful. Sakura hesitated to take on the Clow Card deal considering her own limitations and the risks. This didn’t necessarily make her a coward, but it made her cautious. When Mars in Taurus does get going, however, there is no convincing them otherwise. Once they have decided on a course of action, it will only anger them to try and stand in their way.

Mars in Taurus is also famous for procrastination. This can be altered with aspects, but in Sakura’s case, it’s true (especially because she has no aspects that alter this). This is probably why she always waits until the end of summer to finish her summer homework. XD Mars in Taurus take their time mostly with things they don’t enjoy or activities that seem to threaten their security. They mostly have energy for pleasurable pursuits and get grouchy when they have to do something they don’t like for long periods of time. With Sun in Aries, Sakura might be active and energetic, but with her ruling planet Mars in Taurus without aspects, not always proactive. XD

Analyzing Venus’s sign would give more clarity to this interpretation.

Mars in Taurus never give up once they get started

Mars in Taurus never gives up once they get started

Jupiter in Aries

Jupiter in Aries amplifies your tendency to charge ahead and your self-assertiveness. You have leadership qualities, you are optimistic and you can mix the boldness with the will to succeed that are specific to Aries. Management ability, leadership and independence: your enthusiasm is a real asset for your life and for your charm!

With your natal Jupiter in Aries, you can make what you want happen in life with a positive attitude. You relish competition and don’t like to wait for things to happen. You like doing things on your own, and that can be when you produce the best results. You can do well as a leader and when you’re being daring and courageous.

Sakura exemplifies Jupiter in Aries by being a cardcaptor. In every situation, Sakura has conquered both her opponents and rivals simply with positivity. Jupiter in Aries makes their own doors open through sheer faith in themselves. Sakura tries to believe in herself, and every time she does, she wins.

Most people born the same year have the same Jupiter.

With your natal Jupiter square or opposite your natal Neptune in Capricorn, you can have a hard time seeing reality, and find yourself confused or mislead. You can go overboard with excess, and that prevents you from getting what you want. Discipline is something you need to learn. You’re giving, but you don’t take the time to figure out who deserves it, and can be taken advantage of.

Analyzing Mars’s sign would give more clarity to this interpretation.

sakura-aries-2

Jupiter in Aries always has a positive attitude, so their belief in themselves is very strong.

Saturn in Sagittarius

Saturn in Sagittarius limits your taste for exoticism and for rebellion. On the other hand, he strengthens your sense of responsibilities and your authority. You focus on what is concrete and real and you avoid venturing into unknown territories.

With your natal Saturn in Sagittarius, you take your beliefs seriously. You believe in them strongly, and can have a hard time being open-minded and accepting of other views, yet you try hard to appear to be open. You may have had a hard time with school early in life, and had to teach yourself.

Sakura is a little more open than her friends when it comes to foreigners. However, noticeably, she rarely travels outside of her own country. Saturn in Sagittarius, in the sign of expansion, often places a limitation there. She only was shown traveling in the Cardcaptor Sakura movie. However, she never traveled in the manga. There’s a certain limitation when it comes to her venturing outside of her usual territory. And when she does, she is often met with obstacles (like in the movie).

Most of her peers may experience this barrier and limitation. As they grow older and wiser, they will seek to experience more of the world.

Saturn rules the elderly. It can describe our grandparents or other wise relatives, as well as teachers and authority figures. Sakura’s great-grandfather is described by Saturn in Sagittarius. Sagittarius is the sign of expansion and can often represent foreign relations. Sakura’s great-grandfather is of foreign descent.

Saturn also rules over the father and Saturn in Sagittarius says something about Sakura’s dad. His archaeological interests seem to be influenced by this. Saturn is the planet of time and limitation. His travels probably consume much of his time. Jupiter is the ruler of Sagittarius, and it represents the higher mind. This could mean higher education, like college or university education, where people can study one specific study thoroughly. Saturn in Sagittarius can represent a father who is interested in philosophy or someone who is a scholar and has connections with a university. Sakura’s father is also a university professor. Saturn makes everything “important”, so I’m certain Sakura’s father makes sure Sakura learns the importance of a higher education.

With your natal Saturn conjunct your natal Uranus in Sagittarius, you try to mesh together creativity and innovation with tradition and convention. You find a way to bring the two together that other people wouldn’t be capable of. At times, you may feel pushed or pulled in one direction or the other, but you should try not to give in to choosing one over the other. Both are important for you, and you need to bring both into your life.

Analyzing Jupiter’s sign would give more clarity to this interpretation.

sakura-sagittarius

Saturn in Sagittarius take their beliefs seriously.

Generational Influences

Uranus in Sagittarius

Uranus in Sagittarius gives you the taste for feats and extraordinary adventures: as you are caught in the desire to discover, at any cost, you may become a hero, a conqueror, an explorer or, on the symbolic plane, a pioneer in such matters as philosophy, politics, economy or spirituality.

With your natal Uranus in Sagittarius, you’re an intuitive person and drawn to alternative beliefs. You want to help people, but you may not be reliable. You can be brutally honest at times, and don’t care if it gets you in trouble. You want to push through boundaries, are unconventional, and independent.

Sakura has experienced adventure after adventure and seems fascinated with them, too (considering her interest in Alice in Wonderland). Thus, she becomes the hero of the story.

She has become a pioneer in spirituality, creating her own “Sakura cards” and giving birth to “Star power”.

Analyzing Jupiter’s sign would give more clarity to this interpretation.

sakura-sagittarius-2

Uranus in Sagittarius is a pioneer when it comes to philosophy and spirituality.

Neptune in Capricorn

 Neptune in Capricorn brings a touch of humanity and emotion into your ambition made of cold and calculated vision. Or, on the contrary, it may disrupt your precise and clear vision of your professional future.

With your natal Neptune in Capricorn, you want to achieve something in your life, and can be practical with your creative ideas. When it comes to your beliefs, you can go for traditional views, or find inspiration through the arts. You may wish life was more fair and rewarded hard work more than it does, and have to learn to accept life as it is.

I do feel that the future of Sakura’s life seems cloudy. What are her ambitions for the future? And honestly, it’s hard to tell what any of the characters in the same generation plan on doing in the future. Neptune is definitely disrupting their clear visions for the future. It all seems unpredictable.

At the same time, Sakura approaches her current vocation (Cardcaptor and Master) with compassion. She treats the cards well and all those involved with it.

With your natal Neptune sextile or trine your natal Pluto in Scorpio, you have an active imagination, and are an intuitive person. You can follow your dreams and make them real, and it happens more smoothly.

Analyzing Saturn’s sign would give more clarity to this interpretation.

Neptune in Capricorn wants everyone to get rewards for working hard.

Neptune in Capricorn wants everyone to get rewards for working hard.

Pluto in Scorpio

Pluto in Scorpio is in his own sign, and according to the Tradition, he is most potent and at his best; fantasies, powerful instincts, strong domineering tendencies, outbursts of passions…

With your natal Pluto in Scorpio, you can be intense, but you fight hard for what you believe is right. You’re determined and can deal with your inner issues. You don’t care for the rules, are willful, and desire intense experiences.

This generation is a powerful one. There are probably many early anime characters from this generation because there was a burst of magical girls and martial arts animes throughout the 1990s (XD). Their intense will, their transformative power, and fixed passions have helped them succeed in areas unheard of. When Sakura and all of her comrades focus this will, they are all unbeatable. It is not shocking that Sakura’s power continued to increase throughout the series. Pluto in Scorpio individuals mostly want the power to control their own lives and they will do whatever it takes to achieve that.

Analyzing Mars’s and Pluto’s signs would give more clarity to this interpretation.

Pluto in Scorpio is passionate and powerful.

Sun in Cancer

Your nature is impressionable. Your sensitivity is very developed and allows you to feel the influences of your environment and to draw your sensations and your feelings from surrounding ambiances. You are very receptive to your family roots, to your past and sometimes, to history. Your imagination is the refuge where you enjoy diving, on your own. The subtleness of your emotions is difficult to render. It is impossible for a cell – family, social, professional – to function by itself without homogenous references, without a “family likeness”(Note: The Li Clan is his life). You are able to convince your close friends to digest their differences and their specificities and to create an intimate relationship in which you can happily show your worth. Should an agent for cohesion be missing, and should everything seem too diverse or scattered, you are probably the most capable to unify the whole group: one after the other, you digest your surrounding characteristics and, as time goes by, you turn into the most perfect representative of your environment. You may need to handle hostility without shutting down the lines of dialogue. You must also learn to develop the fighting spirit that your sign lacks, so that your receptivity can be fully expressed.

Cancer, you are the fourth sign in the zodiac, and are a sensitive and emotional sign. You feel everything deeply, and are easily wounded as a result. When you get wounded, you hide in your shell, not wanting anyone to have the chance to hurt you again. You need to work on developing thicker skin so you don’t keep yourself locked away from people so much. Opening up emotionally would be good for you because it’ll help you have more closer relationships with people that will support you, and you need plenty of support if you’re going to feel safe in this dangerous world. You like to be comfortable, which tends to make your home your most favorite place on Earth. You’ll make it a cozy, inviting place that everyone loves, and it’s a good place for you to relax. Because you can relax at home, you tend to come across differently there, more like your true self, so if you come across as loud and flashy, you’ll be quiet and shy at home, and vice versa. At times, you can be quite ambitious, whether it’s with your work or your personal life, and you want to have some success in your life to create stability. You’re not someone who goes against tradition, and you prefer to go with conventional methods. Being daring or adventurous usually isn’t something you strive for, and you don’t understand why people can’t be happy with the way things have always been. It could be good for you to open up your mind though. You tend to experience life through your emotions, and you neglect your mind and body to a degree. If you want to gain more control over your emotions, you should try to form stronger connections to your mind and body. If you can do that, there wouldn’t be much that you couldn’t do, and you’d always feel secure, safe, and comfortable, no matter where you are.

Cancer Sun (Dominant Parental Figures in Life-Father, Older Siblings, Guidance Counselors, Teachers, Female Leaders of Family, etc ): If your Sun is in Cancer, then your Sun parents probably appeared to you to be very nurturing. Your earliest memories might be of your Sun parent reading you a story and tucking you in at night. If you had a boo-boo, the sun parent would clean it, put a band-aid on and seal it with a kiss (even if it were an imaginary cut). Going to the zoo, grocery shopping, or even cooking a meal together was always fun with your sun parent! If you have the sun in Cancer, your relation to your sun parent is one of deep affection, where both of you feel very committed to each other. You are also both quite protective, sometimes in ways that lead to frustration, because you both feel that you know what’s best for the other. Still, your bonds are unlikely to ever break, and you cherish each other’s company, without the need to either speak or do anything in particular.

His sun is clearly evident from the beginning. Sun in Cancer individuals have a strong tie to their family history and lineage. In fact, they are proud of where they come from. From the beginning, Syaoran has shown pride in his family, the Li Clan, and the fact that he is a descendant of the all-powerful sorcerer Clow Reed. The fact that he wears his robes in almost every combat scene shows that he’s not afraid to wear his pride on his sleeve. Syaoran has also shown that he’s generally interested in all history, especially when Sakura’s dad (an archeologist and university professor) visited their school.

The Sun even shows what makes us confident and happy. Syaoran may have been a little grumpy throughout the story because he had to leave his loved ones behind in Hong Kong. Sun in Cancer denotes an individual who is happy when surrounded by people they care about. In the anime, Sakura noted that Syaoran seemed “happier” when Wei (his Butler and martial arts trainer) moved to Japan to live with him.

He’s moody (Cancer being influenced by the tides of the moon) and often lets his emotions get the best of him (regarding Yukito and Sakura XD). But his sensitivity also hides a caring and compassionate side.

Can I also add that he’s domestic? Sun in Cancer men know how to take care of themselves fully, being both businessmen and great cooks and cleaners at the same time. Syaoran has shown several times that he is capable of performing tasks that are deemed more domestic, like cooking and sewing.

There is one thing that is super common among Sun in Cancer males: Their mother and sisters rule the roost in some fashion. It’s not uncommon to find Sun in Cancers in single parent homes where mother is both father and mother to the children. Older sisters and grandmothers may live in the home as well. Cancer is ruled by the moon, the planet associated with “mothers” and “women” in general, and often this means her influence is dominant in the child’s life, for better or worse. Syaoran’s mother is a single parent and is in charge of their family. In this case, Syaoran will often have to submit to women in his life if he expects to be respected. XD This even happened in his relationship with Sakura.

Still, Syaoran isn’t an uber dominant person unless he feels he needs to protect something. In his case, he was determined to make sure the Clow Cards, a precious family heirloom, got into the right hands. That is mostly when he exercises his will. For most males, the Sun’s energy is very important and usually defines their manhood.

Sun in cancers normally have keen intuition. Syaoran’s senses are sharp and he recognizes the importance of listening to his gut instincts.

The Sun is most evident in males, being one of the masculine planets. Many of Syaoran’s heros or those men he admires may have association with the moon, like Yukito.

With your natal Sun sextile or trine your natal Jupiter in Pisces, you don’t stay down for very long about things. Good things tend to come your way more easily, and you try to remain positive and generous no matter what you’re going through. You’re easy to get along with, and have a good heart. You have a good sense of humor and love to laugh.

Being an introverted sign, this aspect will probably come out more when he’s alone, at home, with close friends, or in intimate settings, rather than with a group of associates. But Syaoran definitely doesn’t stay down for long. Despite his initial harsh nature, he seemed to quickly get over the Final Judgment with the Clow cards (unless of course you count the WB dub).

With your natal Sun square or opposite your natal Mars in Capricorn, your energy is abundant and it’s hard to control, especially in your younger years. You were the kid bouncing off of the walls and always getting injured. You need to learn how to focus your energy into something productive, have an outlet for it, otherwise it drives you mad. You have the drive to get things done, and can act impulsively. Your temper can get the better of you at times. You’re not someone who avoids problems, but rather goes right at them, so you can get through difficulties and use the experience to your advantage.

With his Mars, his focus is better than the average person with this aspect. However, Sun in Cancer has knocked his focus out of whack, especially when he felt strong feelings of love. Eriol has had to constantly remind him to calm down and focus better. XD

Syaoran definitely has quite the temper, but he tackles problems head on. He never hesitates to go after Clow Cards when he first senses them.

Analyzing the Moon’s sign would give more clarity to this interpretation.

syaoran-cancer

Sun in Cancer is very receptive to their family roots, to their past, and to history.

Moon in Vir* (Moon is near Libra)

On the day and at the time of your birth, the Moon was in the sign of Virgo. You have a strong need for security and your constant concern is to keep your intimate environment under control. You treasure and you protect all the things that make you feel comfortable. You have no exaggerated ambitions, no grandiose and boundless dreams. You only strive to organize all the elements of your everyday life, to find a place for each thing and to improve yourself. You can relax only if your habits are not disturbed by external events. You are selective in your intimate sphere and with your attachments, you are perfectly organized and in line with the self-set rules you establish as time goes by. For you, life is a puzzle composed of human pieces, a chessboard where you move according to an obvious logic. Daily landmarks and well-known items are important to you. You have the soul of a collector.

A master of the details, that’s Virgo Moons. You like having things to do and feeling like you’re needed, and don’t mind doing the kinds of things most of us find boring if people show you proper appreciation for it. Depending on other factors, you might be more than happy just living a normal life, which other people may not understand (since most of us are pretty unrealistic!). You like structure and organization, and you might be one of those people who cleans when they’re stressed out. Others may think you’re too predictable, but you’re likely okay with that (unless you’re an Aquarius!), and you’re pretty dependable. When you’re unhappy or stressed, you’re probably a nag and can whine with the best of them. You can be overly analytical and have problems with your nerves. You need to learn how to relax and let yourself just be. You can be too hard on yourself sometimes, and if not handled well, an excessive perfectionist (Note: It must have sucked when he lost the Clow Cards to Sakura… ). Hey, we all have flaws, it’s okay! If you’ve got a good sense of humor, then you’re probably self-deprecating (in a good-natured way). In relationships, you’re usually not one for grand gestures, but do a lot of little, everyday things. You like being of service to people and feel you have a purpose.

Nurturing Parental Figures in Life (Mother, Female Influences, Teachers, Guidance Counselors, Father, Grandparents, Older Siblings): Your Virgo Moon parent is mentally thorough and methodical. You get the sense that he or she has given substantial thought to any project before ever making the first move. When you ask a question, this parent doesn’t just toss back an instant response. Instead, you may hear several questions to clarify and explore the situation. In the process, you often come to your own conclusion. This parent teaches you how to approach problem solving by helping you to develop choices and make decisions. Sometimes it seems like this parent misses good opportunities by holding back a bit too long. You may want to jump in, metaphorically speaking, whereas your parent explores the depth and temperature of the water first. Generally you discover that your parent has been ahead of the curve all along. He or she has held back to allow a situation to play out before committing to a specific course of action, not because of hesitation, but because foresight suggests that shifts will occur in the playing field. While this approach may not work for you, this parent pulls it off time and time again. You sometimes feel that this parent is super critical of your behavior. You may feel that your schoolwork brings nothing but criticism, or your appearance is scrutinized constantly. Even your feeling life is open to criticism. Unfortunately, this kind of criticism is remembered long after any praise is forgotten. Your Virgo Moon parent has the capacity to study any subject deeply. If you share an interest, expect to delve deeply into the subject. Years later, your parent may continue to come up with adaptations or considerations relating to the subject. From this person you learn how to get a broad overview and then gather data to flesh out every area of the subject. You probably saw your moon parent as a bit critical and nagging at times. Proper and conservative, with a strong desire to care for the family, she may have gone unnoticed as one of the most devoted mothers. It would have been ok with her; her satisfaction comes from knowing she raised her children right.

The Moon is in Virgo, ruler of his Sun sign. This is partially why Syaoran is so good at domestic things. Virgo is clean, tidy, and useful at all times. It’s no wonder he was able to live by himself (in the manga only) and fully take care of himself!

The Moon in Virgo is also why he treasures the Clow Cards and seeks to collect them.

Moon in Virgos work hard. They need to work at something, especially at improving themselves. Syaoran, even after the Final Judgment, continued to train and increase his power just to be of use. In fact, he wanted to collect the Clow Cards to increase his power, to improve his power.

Sure, Syaoran can be very critical. But he’s critical because he cares. The Clow Cards were very important to him and he wanted to make sure they were handled efficiently.

Moon in Virgos can be perfectionists. When Syaoran didn’t do well on the flute test, he continued to practice after it was all over. He also dedicates himself to learning Japanese and actually spoke fluently throughout the story.

Moon in Virgos don’t get close to others easily, but when they do they treasure every moment with them. Syaoran didn’t get close to people easily, but to the ones he considered friends, he protected and cared for them.

The Moon rules the mother or nurturing figures. It’s clearly evident that Syaoran’s mother is very hard on him (as we can tell from the movie). She also has high expectations of him, which is why she sent him to help Sakura capture the Clow Cards. It’s probably one of the reasons Syaoran works so hard. He really seeks his mother’s approval.

With your natal Moon square or opposite natal Jupiter in Pisces, you want to help people, but can go too far and hurt yourself in the process, or try to give far more than you’re capable of. You can forgive people too easily when you shouldn’t. Your emotions can go too high or too low at times, and you have to learn to rein yourself in and deal with reality. You can be lazy and indulgent, expecting everyone to do everything for you. Conversely, you can do too much for others.

Analyzing Mercury’s sign would give more clarity to this interpretation.

Moon in Virgos are happy with the simple things, just living a normal life.

Moon in Virgo is happy with the simple things, just living a normal life.

Mercury in Leo (Some Consider Falling)

In your chart, Mercury is in Leo. You want to explain and to control complex situations. You express yourself straightforwardly and directly, at the risk of hurting your entourage. Communication means to figure out the character and the specificity of each individual; you need to understand and to define the personality of your interlocutor so as to clarify the relationship. On the human plane, you are sensitive to power struggles and to the power exerted.

With your natal Mercury in Leo, you talk with flair, and you command people’s attention. You express yourself with warmth and this gets people on your side. You’re strongly connected to your beliefs, stubbornly so at times, and can be a little proud. You need to express yourself, and may be a creative person. You can be a great speaker, with passion and flair. You need to watch for believing that your thoughts, opinions, and ideas are better than everyone else’s, and be more open to what other people have to contribute (This was felt at the beginning of the story). If you have a proper outlet for expression, this can be curbed, so make sure you’re not holding anything in and are properly expressing yourself.

In fact, Syaoran thought he knew so much about the Clow Cards, he overlooked the thoughts and opinions of the Guardian Beast of the Seal! This is partially why some people think Mercury is falling in Leo. Their pride is often connected with their thinking, and sometimes they overlook facts and logic to save their dignity.

Fortunately, Mercury in Leos like to appear competent. They often try to learn all they can to become intelligent beings. Most of the time, they have room to be proud of what they know and what they believe.

When Syaoran turned his speaking abilities towards comforting others, he was just as effective.

With your natal Mercury square or opposite your natal Pluto in Scorpio, you can become obsessed easily. It’s difficult to pull yourself back once you get into something. Trusting people is a problem because you always think they have malicious intent, and you’ll keep digging until you find something that proves you’re right, at least in your own head. You can use your determined mind to your advantage through your work, if you can corral it.

XD

With your natal Mercury sextile or trine your natal Saturn, you have mental discipline and can focus when you need to. You’re honest and expect the same in return. You’re a reliable person, someone who’ll always do what they say they will. You’re good at making plans and sticking with them.

Mercury in Leo normally picks and chooses what they want to focus on, but with Saturn easily working with his Mercury, he is able to focus on any subject, even his least favorite subjects. His mental focus is probably why math is his favorite subject. Saturn makes him a good student.

Analyzing the Sun’s sign would give more clarity to this interpretation.

Mercury in Leo command people's attention.

Venus in Virgo (Falling)

Venus describes your affective life. On the day of your birth, she is found in Virgo. The control of your emotions is essential to you. You need to understand all the aspects of your sentimental life. Therefore, you do not commit your affectivity in tortuous or hazardous paths. This attitude may be interpreted as a form of reserve, of modesty or of shyness (Note: Blush alert 😛 ). You complicate your amorous relationships for fun… Moderation in all things, even and particularly in love! Appearances are misleading: your behaviour may seem cautious, even shy or timid, however, your affectivity is strong… Your heart is discreet and its impulses are controlled and moderate. You do not want your relationship to run out of your control. Your soul is loyal, you are helpful when necessary and you avoid crises, clashes and tragedies in order to not endanger your couple. You are keen to maintain the balance of your unions. But, as you strive too relentlessly to keep your happiness intact, you may lose it. You do not dare to play the games of passion and of love at first sight. You fear burning feelings. In these conditions, it is important that you do not smother your emotions and you take the risk of experiencing a passionate love. Feelings cannot be calculated and they obey very few laws.

With your natal Venus in Virgo, you take a practical approach to love. You may not be the most romantic of people, but you’re incredibly dedicated, and you show how much you care by doing lots of little things for your partner and paying attention to all of the little details of their personality and life. At times, you can point out what they’re doing wrong too much, but in your mind, you’re just trying to help them be the best they can be. You don’t want someone who is too clingy or dishonest. You’re also not fans of people who seem too flashy and want to be the center of attention (Note: Meilin ahem). You don’t need to be in a relationship, and can be a bit insecure in love, so this keeps you from being in many of them, and you take your time getting to know someone first. (Note: Sakura and Syaoran have opposite Venus signs XD)

Syaoran’s Venus is in the falling sign of Virgo. He’s not the most romantic guy around, and it’s hard for him to warm up to people, too. He’s very much a loner. In the anime, Meilin mentioned how he stayed to himself and hardly mingled with others.

Venus in Virgos are really just shy. They also are particular about who they choose for company because they are so shy. Once he’s devoted his life to someone, he’s sweet, caring, and there for those he loves when they need him. Venus in Virgos do subtle things for the ones they love, things people don’t often notice (like he made the teddy bear and hid it for the longest time).

Unlike Sakura, with the exalted Venus, it was hard for others to warm up to him because he was super honest (or critical if you prefer to use that word). But when he does love someone, his feelings are sincere and real (and clear, unlike Sakura’s). In fact, he criticizes those he likes! Venus in Virgos like those who are efficient and perfect, but they always end up falling in love with the “imperfect” ones, those who need them. Tomoyo pointed out in the Sealed Card movie that Syaoran fell in love with the “unsophisticated” part of Sakura. That sums up Venus in Virgo. Many times, no matter how critical they are, they love to be around imperfect people because it helps them insert themselves in their loved ones’ lives.

One thing I always notice about Venus in Virgos is that they never want love to interfere with real life. Yes, many don’t see love as a practical part of life. And they think some people tend to act their most absent-minded when in love, too. They don’t want to be those kind of people. They don’t feel comfortable “losing their mind” just because they are in love. XD And feelings of love can release all kinds of emotions that can cloud the mind. They see it more as something they should invest in when they have the time. They try to control their feelings even more when they work alongside someone they love. Syaoran had this problem often. He found that the real solution to having better focus was to release his feelings so that they wouldn’t be a burden to him when he needed to be of use.

With your natal Venus square or opposite your natal Saturn in Sagittarius, you can have a hard time expressing the love you have for someone. Something stands in the way, and you have to confront whatever it is first before you can open yourself up. You may have a better time managing this aspect as you get older, and you learn to lighten up a little.

With your natal Venus sextile or trine your natal Neptune in Capricorn, you have a gentleness to you, are charming, and can express yourself creatively. You have an active imagination and want everything in the world to be beautiful. You’re a generous person, though you may give too much at times.

With your natal Venus sextile or trine natal Pluto in Scorpio, you can see right through people and situations. You know how to use resources well, and gravitate towards relationships that allow you to transform yourself. You’re passionate without being overwhelming, and know how to sway people to your side.

Analyzing Mercury’s sign would give more clarity to this interpretation.

syaoran-virgo-2

Venus in Virgo individuals’ appearances are misleading: their behaviour may seem cautious, even shy or timid, however, their affectivity is strong

Mars in Capricorn (Exalted)

The planet Mars indicates how you react to life concrete stimulations. It also describes your fighting spirit, your abilities to stand for yourself and to take action. With Mars in Capricorn, your fortitude is quite exceptional. You strive to control your passions and your instincts and to keep a cool-head under all circumstances (Note: I’m sure his Sun in Cancer, the opposite sign, makes this very difficult). This is probably the reason of your strength. You show firmness with others and with yourself. In the course of an action, you are able to make sustainable, strong and well-structured efforts. You may be criticized for your lack of adaptability. Your first reaction is to immutably remain your true self. This propensity to stability, although it may slow down your initiatives, is very valuable, in many circumstances: your reactions are in line with your own values and you are not destabilized by prevailing trends and fleeting fashions… and by advice given to you!

With your natal Mars in Capricorn, you have control over your energy and focus. You come up with long-term goals and you stick to them easily. You like working hard, and you want to feel as though you’re achieving something in life. Your drive is towards success, and you’ll do whatever it takes to get there. You can hold in too much when you get riled up, and over time, that bottling up of emotion (especially anger) can lead to all sorts of problems. On the surface, you can seem like you’re as cold as stone, despite how grounded you are. You have great self-discipline, and you won’t waste any time on anything that you shouldn’t. You demand the best of yourself, sometimes expecting too much, and dedicate yourself to work even more when you’re upset.

Mars is considered the other masculine planet, and Syaoran’s is exalted. Mars is normally passionate, but impulsive and without control. With his Mars in Capricorn, he has the passion, but the mental focus and drive to put his energy somewhere.

Syaoran is focused and hard-working. He will do all it takes to succeed, letting nothing stop him. Sure, he may come across cold on his climb to success (aspects can alter this), but he will make sure the job gets done. The only thing that takes him off-guard at times is his own emotions (because of his Sun sign and the opposition aspect). But most times he tries to stay in control.

If Sakura hadn’t had loads of support, this boy definitely would’ve become the new master in a heartbeat. His determination to prove his worth was unbeatable and even Kero had to acknowledge (in the anime) when Syaoran deserved a Clow Card. He put a tremendous amount of energy into helping Sakura collect and transform the Clow Cards, even sacrificing his own magic and body in the confrontation against Eriol. This same drive brought him all the way from his hometown, Hong Kong, to Japan so he could work on his mission. He sacrificed the comforts of home and the familiarity of family and friends to accomplish his goal. Since the Sun is what makes us happy, he even sacrificed his own happiness (being around his loved ones) just to collect the cards. That is some serious ambition.

Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, planet of time and wisdom. Most people with this placement handle their energy in a mature fashion. Syaoran was hard on Sakura, but he was also good motivation and a good coach. He made full use of his energy at all times and was always prepared.

With your natal Mars sextile or trine your natal Jupiter in Pisces, you believe in yourself, and this allows you to do more than most. You can embark on new projects and adventures with enthusiasm and drive. You’re a positive person and try not to be too serious. You’re always trying to see just how much more you can do.

Analyzing Saturn’s sign would give more clarity to this interpretation.

syaoran-capricorn

Mars in Capricorn wants to be successful and will do whatever it takes to get there.

Jupiter in Pisces (Domicile)

Jupiter in Pisces increases your natural generosity and your dedication capacity. Your empathy is strong and you are inclined to offer your strength and your enthusiasm to the most deprived people and to give unlimited assistance to others. Your imagination is powerful and your feelings may flare up easily: with your sensitivity on the alert and your unbridled affectivity, you belong to the category of people who intuitively detect other people’s sufferings and most valuable qualities of the heart, as if you were a human radar.

With your natal Jupiter in Pisces, you’re a compassionate person, and through your compassion, you can accomplish a lot. Help those who can’t help themselves, and be kind to everyone. You have a strong spiritual side, and just want everyone to get along, believing very much in the mantra, make love not war. Let your imagination soar.

Having Jupiter in the traditional domicile, one of the original homes of Jupiter, Syaoran’s faith is powerful. Syaoran understands the full meaning of faith, understanding that through good and bad times, that someone or something will get you through the worst of times.

This is why, in the end, Syaoran was there to remind Sakura of her invincible spell when she almost gave out. Deep down, Syaoran is kind, as Sakura and Tomoyo often point out about him. And when he performs acts of kindness, he will gain more benefits than he can imagine.

Jupiter in Pisces gives a strong spiritual leaning. This touch with the spiritual world was why he was able to master his own magic before he got hold of the Clow Cards and why he was able to channel this energy so well. He understands the nature of things others do not understand. Syaoran is like a “human radar”. He can immediately detect power and intentions. He also knows when someone is suffering and jumps to the rescue. Many times, he does so without acknowledgement (like when dealing with the Power Card).

Jupiter also rules the higher mind and higher learning, particularly with one field of interest in mind. With Jupiter in Pisces, it’s easy to see that Syaoran’s particular field of interest would be something magical, spiritual, or metaphysical.

Analyzing Neptune’s sign would give more clarity to this interpretation.

syaoran-pisces

Jupiter in Pisces’s empathy is strong; they can intuitively detect others’ suffering.

Saturn in Sagittarius

Saturn in Sagittarius limits your taste for exoticism and for rebellion. On the other hand, he strengthens your sense of responsibilities and your authority. You focus on what is concrete and real and you avoid venturing into unknown territories.

With your natal Saturn in Sagittarius, you take your beliefs seriously. You believe in them strongly, and can have a hard time being open-minded and accepting of other views, yet you try hard to appear to be open. You may have had a hard time with school early in life, and had to teach yourself.

Saturn often puts a limitation on expansion when in Sagittarius. For Syaoran, this didn’t stop him from traveling, but it put “necessity” behind his travels. In other words, he only traveled to Japan because it was a necessity for him. Of course, Saturn placed plenty of obstacles in front of him in Japan, but all of these experiences made him wiser and more mature.

Saturn in Sagittarius also reveals that Syaoran takes his academics seriously. Sagittarius rules scholars and higher learning, particularly when it comes to mastering one subject. Syaoran studied and worked hard to master his magic and learn all he could about his family’s magic. He took it seriously.

Analyzing Jupiter’s sign would give more clarity to this interpretation.

Saturn in Sagittarius believe in their own beliefs strongly.

Generational Influences

Uranus in Sagittarius

Uranus in Sagittarius gives you the taste for feats and extraordinary adventures: as you are caught in the desire to discover, at any cost, you may become a hero, a conqueror, an explorer or, on the symbolic plane, a pioneer in such matters as philosophy, politics, economy or spirituality.

With your natal Uranus in Sagittarius, you’re an intuitive person and drawn to alternative beliefs. You want to help people, but you may not be reliable. You can be brutally honest at times, and don’t care if it gets you in trouble. You want to push through boundaries, are unconventional, and independent.

Syaoran became one of the heroes and the explorer within the story. You can’t tell me he didn’t feel some spirit of adventure when he left Hong Kong for Japan, right? 😉

Syaoran was interested in new philosophies and magic, which is a part of his generation’s path.

Analyzing Jupiter’s sign would give more clarity to this interpretation.

Uranus in Sagittarius is intuitive and drawn to alternative beliefs.

Neptune in Capricorn

 Neptune in Capricorn brings a touch of humanity and emotion into your ambition made of cold and calculated vision. Or, on the contrary, it may disrupt your precise and clear vision of your professional future.

With your natal Neptune in Capricorn, you want to achieve something in your life, and can be practical with your creative ideas. When it comes to your beliefs, you can go for traditional views, or find inspiration through the arts. You may wish life was more fair and rewarded hard work more than it does, and have to learn to accept life as it is.

I think, throughout the story, Syaoran learned how to implement humanity into his calculated vision. He admitted that when he first moved to Japan, all he cared about was collecting the Clow Cards and enhancing his own magic. But after meeting Sakura and the gang, Syaoran learned to do things for others.

Syaoran didn’t fully get what he wanted in the end, and maybe he didn’t feel it was fair, which was more evident in the WB dubbed version. 😦 But Syaoran did win the heart of the one he loved. That’s a victory in itself.

His future is just as unclear as Sakura’s and all the other characters in the series. Anything is possible for them, I suppose.

With your natal Neptune sextile or trine your natal Pluto in Scorpio, you have an active imagination, and are an intuitive person. You can follow your dreams and make them real, and it happens more smoothly.

Analyzing Saturn’s sign would give more clarity to this interpretation.

li-syaoran-capricorn

Neptune in Capricorn can be practical with their creative ideas.

Pluto in Scorpio

Pluto in Scorpio is in his own sign, and according to the Tradition, he is most potent and at his best; fantasies, powerful instincts, strong domineering tendencies, outbursts of passions…

With your natal Pluto in Scorpio, you can be intense, but you fight hard for what you believe is right. You’re determined and can deal with your inner issues. You don’t care for the rules, are willful, and desire intense experiences.

This generation is a powerful one. There are probably many early anime characters from this generation because there was a burst of magical girls and martial arts animes throughout the 1990s (XD). Their intense will, their transformative power, and fixed passions have helped them succeed in areas unheard of. When Syaoran and all of his comrades focus this will, they are all unbeatable. Syaoran came to Japan to increase his own power. This generation is mostly focused on having power over their own lives and will do whatever it takes to achieve that.

Analyzing Mars’s and Pluto’s signs would give more clarity to this interpretation.

Pluto in Scorpio is passionate and powerful.

5 Reasons To Love Cardcaptor Sakura

18 Oct

For the past three weeks, I’ve been binge watching an old Japanese anime from my childhood: Cardcaptor Sakura. This year marks Cardcaptor Sakura‘s 20th year anniversary, and it looks like CLAMP has added a new arc to the Cardcaptor Sakura series to celebrate: The Clear Card Arc. There is also an anime project in the works. ❤ I did happen to read the first five chapters of the new arc. So far…Regrettably…I’m once again addicted. XD

Recently, I got wind that Cardcaptor Sakura had also been re-dubbed by Animax. As an anime fan, I couldn’t pass the opportunity to watch it up.

A little bit of nostalgia and a little bit of a fascination with mysteries and wonders in the world brought me into Cardcaptor Sakura in the first place. Re-watching it again, no matter how bad the dub sounds, how bad I have to focus to read subtitles, or how poor my Japanese skills are, I can’t help but want to watch and read the whole thing over and over again.

carcaptors-sakura-anime

No matter how many times I’ve watched this anime, I never get bored or tired of it. I couldn’t put my finger on it for the longest time. Why can’t I ever get tired of this anime? What about this anime draws me in every time?

Sure, there are plenty of great Shoujo animes out there. I’ve watched my share. But this one always seems to capture my heart every time I watch it. I usually consider myself tomboyish…But this anime brings out my “girlish” side (?). It’s just so darn sweet and cute. ❤

With that being said, I gathered 5 things I love about this anime and I would like to share them with you, readers, and maybe you might find you like these things about the anime too! For all of you newcomers to Cardcaptor Sakura, I recommend you give this manga/anime a try.

1 .Love Has No Definition

In the Cardcaptor Sakura universe, and fans know this, love isn’t clearly defined, isn’t one-dimensional, and it evolves. Truly, CLAMP, the writers of the source material, had no qualms with inculcating relationships that defy the traditional. In many respects, it was ahead of its time (since it did come out in the 1990s).

For instance, there is one couple in the series that consist of two teenage boys (though technically one isn’t human, but whatever). However you take their relationship, the material doesn’t hesitate to express that these two individuals love one another the most. They don’t turn this into something perverted or unaccepted. It seems to flow naturally in the story, is accepted, and is very romantic. It still carried a level of innocence that is not common with this kind of relationship. All of the relationships could be taken any way according to the reader. There are relationships between family that are highlighted to be stronger than relationships between lovers within this story. However you want to see love and romance, this story has a lot to offer.

Other relationships expressed in the story are still not considered acceptable. However, I applaud CLAMP’s bold approach to the romance genre and their ability to look outside of the box. Even with their canon romance, throughout everything, it was anything but boring.

I usually hate the romance genre. In anime especially, the love interest is usually super obvious and is developed long before the story takes off. It makes the following episodes boring. But I am completely obsessed with this story’s romance story.

2. Everything is Mysterious

I love anything mysterious and unexpected. Cardcaptor Sakura is full of magic and mystery. There was always a suspicious new character being introduced, always a mysterious card lying around, and the story behind most all of the characters are very peculiar and interesting. All of the characters could have their own spin-off series and it would be interesting. Though there was a lot of information left out, it didn’t stop the characters from growing,learning, and changing.

3. The Characters Are Layered And Evolve

Adding on from the last point, the characters are very individual, unique, and evolve. Even the characters one would think is the most stereotypical has something different happen to them that changes the character’s whole perspective on life, thus changing the reader’s opinion of them. The main character is an example of that. One would think that everyone would be in love with the main character. Isn’t that how it is in most Shoujo (directed to girls) anime? But not in this one. Though sure, everybody likes her, this character is not immune to heartbreak. And her idea of a love interest…certainly not someone people would initially think of as “love interest” material. In most shoujo anime, the main love interest is a handsome, tsundere/cheerful guy, who is usually older than the lead character. While this anime starts typically, it evolves into something entirely different…

All characters have strengths and weaknesses, annoying traits and charms. I can’t really say I hate any characters in the story.

4. The Music

This is particularly a point about the anime. The music is mystical and soothing at the same time. The scores are epic.

5. CLAMP-The Creators

What isn’t cool about an all female manga group? I’d say that’s pretty empowering. The four businesswomen who came together to make this project have managed to create a “stamp” for all of their creations. In many of their stories, there is always an element of mystery and intrigue. However, the most notably intriguing part of their animation is how similar all of their characters look. Many times, references are made regarding the similarities throughout most of their other anime and manga work. It almost seems like all of their characters are a part of one big universe and are all connected somehow.

There are four ways to get into the Cardcaptor Sakura story if you’re an English speaker: the translated manga, the Japanese anime subbed, the Nelvana dubbed version, and the Animax dubbed Version…

There are typically two arcs: The Clow Card arc and the Sakura Card arc. But, in the anime, they are covered by 3 seasons with 70 episodes in total. With the new Clear Card arc, there may be more. There are also two movies for the anime series.

The manga is the original source material. NONE of the animes are super close to the original story in the manga, not even the Japanese anime, aside from certain key events and characters. In the anime adaptations, there were many new scenes, extra cards collected, and new characters that weren’t in the manga. At the same time, the animes equally left out other interesting scenes you can only find in the manga. Still, the animes added all the main characters and the most important card scenes.

The Japanese anime was the first adaptation of the manga. You can watch this version with subtitles now.

The Nelvana dub changed the feeling and tone from the original Japanese anime. The cast sounded more “American” (with popular American names and customs replacing Japanese names and customs) and there are hardly any Japanese undertones. Many scenes were edited and chopped up, the opening and ending songs were changed, and the title was changed to Cardcaptors. Season 3 never aired on tv in some countries, so it may all be new to some Cardcaptors fans. They can be found online and in DVD sets. This anime was meant to appeal more to boys as well as girls. I enjoy the dubbing and music on this version. It feels more natural to me (and less cutesy 😉 ). It may be because I’m American and I started with this version. XD

The Animax version was meant to be the direct dub of the original Japanese anime. It does a decent job, but some parts aren’t completely dubbed, for whatever reason…

My advice is to read and watch whichever suits your fancy. I’ve found charms in all versions. ❤

Fans can also look forward to a new chapter in the story! I’m both excited and exasperated. I do love this anime and used to want to know what happened next. But I’m afraid that the anime will outwear its beautiful simplicity. I really liked where the manga and anime ended and I’m afraid things may be ruined or may turn sour with more added to the story. One thing that has ruined other anime and manga was having too many episodes and volumes. Everything must find an ending. I feel that this anime will be more of a gem where it’s at. At the same time, I wasn’t satisfied not seeing the rest. So maybe just one more arc would be fine…

I’ll tell you this…I don’t want to wait two more years before the anime is released. I hope the manga and anime are released simultaneously. I’m too excited! XD

Leave me a comment and let me know what you think! Have you watched this anime before? Do you agree with my reasons? If you love this story, what are your reasons for loving Cardcaptor Sakura? Do you plan to watch and have any more questions? I’m open to any discussions.

What Do Your Zodiac Signs’ Colors Say About YOU?

22 Jun

96cc7e10-e093-4867-9111-6206ff09c785_560_420

Many of you have probably heard of your “astrological” or “zodiac” sign before. You probably know whether you’re an Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, or Pisces, right?

But many of you may not know that the signs we’re most familiar with are our “star” signs or Sun signs and that we have 9 other important “planetary” signs in our astrological natal charts.

For those who don’t know this, this article may be too confusing for you.

To Learn more about this, move on over to this article first: Introduction to the Planets, Signs, and Aspects

For those who are aware, this will be a good, simple read.

We’ve all heard that certain colors are associated with certain Sun signs. Well, those colors are not just for the Sun. We could exude other planetary energies if we wear the colors associated with our other signs. This could bring balance to our wardrobes and allow us to have some variety.

I created this color guide so that everyone can bring out the best of their natal charts and so people won’t feel so consumed by the colors of their Sun signs.

First, let’s start off with the colors associated with the 12 signs:

Aries, vibrant and bold 
Main-Red
Other: violet, blue, black, and white, gold

Taurus, calm and sensual 
Main-pale Pink, Green
Other: pale Yellow, pale blue, pale purple, white, brown, black

Gemini, bright and social
Main-Yellow
Other: bright green, burnt orange, blue, pink

Cancer, caring and dreamy 
Main-Silver, Grey, white
Other: purple, green, blue

Leo, dramatic and dignified
Main-gold, orange
Other: purple, red, copper, baige, rose pink, yellow

Virgo, intelligent and down-to-earth 
Main-brown, green
Other: dark blue, grey, white, rust purple

Libra, classy and easy-going 
Main-Blue
Other: pale green, purple, white, pink, white, pastels

Scorpio, magnetic and powerful
Main-shades of red, black
Other: dark Purple, dark gray, seaweed green, dark blue

Sagittarius, adventurous and wise
Main-Purple,light and dark shades, dark blue

Other: blue, green, purple, neon pink, red, electric colors, strange colors

Pisces, imaginative and perceptive
Main-Sea green, shades of purple
Other: mauve, silver, white, blue, violet, all decided by their moods

If we combine the colors of the signs with the planetary meanings, we will begin to understand how we can bring out the best in our outfits and ourselves.

Next is how planetary meanings can resonate with the colors in your clothes:

The Sun-Rules the ego and the basic self, the inner identity. Wearing the colors of our Sun sign will feel the most natural. To the world, it will seem to fit with your general identity. Reflecting who you “are”, you are likely to attract the right opportunities to yourself that will make you content, happy, and confident in your skin. People have developed their identities since they were children, so wearing the colors will seem to bring you back to your youth. At the same time, because you are one with yourself, you will have more confidence, which will make you seem like an authority figure to others. These colors would be perfect to wear for any occasion, especially when you need a confidence boost.

Example: When Sun is in its rulership sign of Leo, wearing bright and bold colors like orange or gold will fit well with their natural dramatic identity. They will definitely be able to attract attention and adoration, which makes them happy and confident!

J-Lo looks naturally aglow in orange! It suits her regal personality!

J-Lo looks naturally aglow in orange! It suits her regal personality! It won’t be hard for this Leo to get attention!

The Moon-Rules the home, moods, feelings. When we wear the colors of our Moon sign, we may be conveying several energies depending on our feelings and mood. The moon is the innermost part of us. It’s very personal. If we wear the colors of our moon, it’s almost like a mood ring reflecting our general moods and feelings. At the same time, these colors could attract circumstances that could improve our overall mood and feelings. We may also feel more connected with our family, culture, and home environment when we wear these colors. The colors could go well with our home décor to improve the overall mood of our homes. These colors would be perfect to wear when feeling down or feeling inspired.

Example: When the Moon is in Scorpio, its falling sign, the people influenced tend to have brooding or deep feelings all the time. Their feelings are extreme and overwhelming at times. Dark colors reflect this brooding mood and depth of mind. But it can also be healing and powerful for them to wear such dark colors. These colors may remind them of darker memories, but these private individuals may still find comfort in black or dark red for home décor and fashion styles. It keeps the busy-bodies away.

Mercury-Rules communication and the conscious mind (thoughts). When we wear the colors of Mercury, we’re revealing the natures of our thoughts and helping ourselves communicate better. Any creative ideas will be expressed easier through the colors that resonate well with our thinking patterns. We would also attract the right circumstances and people for easier communication and mental stimulation. These colors would be perfect to wear when giving a speech, going to work or school, going to a party, or roaming about the neighborhood.

Example:  When Mercury is in Libra, light pastel colors reflect their cool and diplomatic thoughts on matters. They can better present diplomatic ideas when wearing colors that are soft on the eyes. Most people will be able to listen to them when they aren’t loud or flamboyant in their color choices. They will also attract diplomatic and easy-going people, the perfect types for socializing and helping to create a scene of harmony.

Venus-Rules Beauty, love, art, affection, aesthetic sense, values, harmony. Venus rules over the color scheme, taste, and style. When we wear the colors of our Venus sign, we are introducing to the world our own individual style and taste!  As a result, we are also sharing our own unique charms and physical beauty. Venus refines us all. When wearing these colors, we tend to look more refined and elegant to the outside world. Venus softens any rough edges and adds an appealing glow to us. These colors would be best to wear on a first date or a night out with friends. If you want to look fabulous all the time, wear a hint of it every day! With Venus colors, we can look quite sexy in a subtle way.

Example: When Venus is in Aries, her detrimental sign, bold red could bring out this individual’s beauty, charms, and graces. They just really look good in red! These people usually like the color red, along with blue, purple, black, and white.

Lily James looks both natural and lovely in red! (Sun and Venus in Aries)

Mars-Rules energy, ambition, drive, aggression, and sex. As a malefic planet, Mars can be tricky. It can be intense or cruel and yet powerful. When we wear the colors of Mars, we are bringing out our own fierce energy and ambition. We will be attracting the right situations to us to help us reach our goals! Unfortunately, we’ll attract competition and enemies, too. Yet, this intensity can make us appear strong and sexy, and not the subtle kind of sexy. Steamy hot! Our greatest passions come out in the colors represented by our Mars signs.

Example: When Mars is in Gemini, these individuals will show their fun but scattered energy and drive when they sport bright and vibrant colors like yellow. They will certainly attract plenty of people who are interesting, and it will be because they look bold and interesting! They will be able to ease any sort of boredom when they wear vibrant colors. Situations will come towards them that promise a good time. Who wouldn’t want to hang with someone in bright yellow? Seems like a fun person! Of course, these people are taking a chance when they sport such a bold color. There will be people who think this color is too loud. But they still manage to blow off some steamy sex appeal in bright colors.

Uma Thurman definitely looks interesting and bold in yellow! She really brings out her Mars in Gemini energy. Doesn’t she seem more approachable?

Jupiter-Rules luck, expansion, beliefs. This is the greatest benefic. When we wear the colors of our Jupiter signs, we attract all sorts of fortune! We attract the right opportunities to expand our horizons when we step into these colors. Anything that does some good in our lives could ultimately make us happy. Therefore, wearing these colors will bring smiles to our faces and give us a boost of energy. These colors may also put us in touch with our beliefs. Our beliefs will be taken seriously if we reflect what we believe.

Example: When Jupiter is in Scorpio, these people attract the opportunity to get involved in some deep and intense experiences that will change their world forever when they sport dark colors like black, dark red, and purple. They also reflect their deep beliefs when they wear these colors. I mean, anyone looking as intense as a Scorpio must have some deep thoughts, right? These people enjoy shaking things up and living life on the edge. A dark color like black and dark red is enough to make them smile!

Britney shows us sexy and edgy in this hot dark red sequined stage ensemble! It’s no surprise she’s Jupiter in Scorpio

Saturn-Rules structure, form, limitation, and responsibility. When we wear the colors of our Saturn, it may take a while for us to warm up to it. But we won’t regret it! We will bring out our professional talents when we wear these colors and will attract success. These colors will thus make us look more mature. If you want to look wiser, wear the colors of your Saturn.

Example: When Saturn is in Sagittarius, wearing the color purple would put them in touch with their more mature and wise side. These people want to learn from the world and teach others or inspire others. In purple, the combination of passionate red and subtle blue will help them find experiences and students to teach.

Madonna gives us the adventure but still carries her “diva” wisdom in purple. Saturn in Sagittarius can make even the most outrageous outfit seem sophisticated.

Uranus-Generational Planet. Rules change, spontaneity, and innovation. When we wear the colors of our Uranus signs, we reflect the changing attitudes of our generation and our sense of rebellion against the norm. These colors could bring us closer to inspired thought. Free your inner rebel in these colors! There’s probably more that we can do with this color than ever before. Now is your time to get innovative and start integrating these colors in spontaneous ways!

Example: When Uranus is in Aquarius, its rulership, these individuals are growing up at a time when anything is possible! They want to be seen as unique and original, so bold electric colors best help them get in touch with their generation’s message. These are the times to dip into some new unusual colors that have probably never been heard before and start trying new things with them!

Definitely representing the Uranus in Aquarius generation!

Definitely representing the Uranus in Aquarius generation! Kylie Jenner made a bold fashion statement with turquoise blue hair!

Neptune-Generational Planet. Rules imagination, artistry, illusion, fantasy. Most of these things are found in books, movies, magazines, tv shows, the internet, and in stores. We are all influenced by entertainment and other art forms, even if we don’t realize it. That’s how subtle influence can be. Neptune could rule over the fashion worn by our favorite celebrities in our favorite movies or music videos. It also inspires fashion designers and what they put out in stores. When we wear the colors of our Neptune, we may very well be wearing the colors most popular among the celebrities! We are recreating our generation by wearing these colors and inspiring others in later generations.

Example: When Neptune is in Leo, bright and bold colors like orange, gold, and yellow reflect the glamor of the time period.

Marilyn Monroe perfectly captured the glam of Neptune in Leo! She was everyone's "dream" girl!

Marilyn Monroe perfectly captured the glam of Neptune in Leo! She was everyone’s “dream” girl!

Pluto-Generational Planet. Rules power, obsession, transformation. When we wear the colors of Pluto, we are revealing the deepest part of our generation. We will be able to attract powerful positions and transformative situations when we embrace the colors of our Pluto. Pluto can make us all intensely sexy in a mysterious and magnetic way. We may reflect our deepest secrets and obsessions. Not too many people may feel comfortable when wearing colors that reflect their “dark side”, but it may lead to healing if we come to terms with our deepest fears and bring it to light. Then we show we don’t fear it anymore.

Example:  When Pluto is in Sagittarius, the color purple shows the generation’s obsession with travel , foreign cultures, and wisdom. They show that they want to combine passionate adventure and cool intelligence together in their lives when they wear purple.

Ever After High: Is Darling Charming Destined to Be Apple White’s “True Love”?

16 May

darling and apple

In this progressive age, there is recently a push for films, tv shows, and even webisodes to be more inclusive and universal. This means not only are people focused on race, culture, religion, and gender, but also sexual orientation.

Ever After High webisodes, inspired from the dolls, have come to the fore for breaking a mold: They allowed two girls to touch lips.

Iphone 5 Ever After High wallpaper

A little summary on the EAH series: The series follows the descendants of popular fairytale characters who attend the high school to follow in their “parents'” footsteps. Throughout the series, however, they learn that they can be in charge of their own destinies. Apple White is one of the main characters and she is adamant about following the “Royal” destiny, the destiny written for her in the Storybook of Legends (basically a contract in the fairytale world), which encourages her to live out her life like her mother (Snow White) did. Raven Queen is her polar opposite in every way. She is represented as the “Rebel” deuteragonist. She was supposed to become the Evil Queen and villain in Apple White’s shining tale, but has decided that role doesn’t “fit” her. She is actually a “good girl”. She has “rebelled” against the Storybook of Legends and decided to re-write her own destiny.  In the movie Way to Wonderland, Raven Queen ripped out the pages of the Storybook so that she and other characters could write their own stories. Though the series was originally advertised as showing two different points of view, the actual series has mostly leaned toward the “rebel” side of things.

The Ever After High characters are all teenagers. Their high school was created by the “Grimm Brothers”, based off of two real-life German storytellers who were among the first to actually collect and publish the fairytales we know today. Of course, their versions were always more gruesome.

dragon games

In the recent Ever After High movie Dragon Games, Apple White had been choking on a piece of poison apple (given by Raven Queen’s evil mother). She ended up passing out (like Snow White did in the story). Daring Charming, her supposed “true love”, tried to kiss her, but his kiss didn’t work. So over struts Darling Charming, his heroic sister determined to be a knight. She gives Apple White “CPR” (which many think was a kiss). There is a magic light and then Apple awakens. This seemed to many to indicate that Darling Charming was actually destined to be Apple White’s “true love”.

This may seem like a proud day for the LGBTQ+ community. In so many respects, it is. It really is one of the few moments where two females in an animated show actually touched lips. It’s a step forward in showing children that the act is very normal.

But as progressive as it seems, I have doubts that the creators really intended to turn Darling Charming’s “CPR” into Apple White’s “true love’s kiss”. I do believe it was a play on “true love’s kiss”, but I believe the scene was mostly intended to show that “true love’s kiss” isn’t real by getting a random friend to save the day instead. They may have been trying to follow the Grimm Brothers’ Snow White tale closer, which never involved “true love’s kiss” at all.

I acknowledge that by giving a “princess” the job to “kiss” instead of a prince, it was meant to make Darling appear more “knight-like” instead of like the stereotypical princess most Royal girls subscribe to. She did want to prove she could save other princesses like the princes, and that a girl can do the “kissing” (or CPR) and save the day, too. However, in the end, I do not think these girls will end up being lovers. There are several indications in the webisodes and throughout the movie that reveal the REAL intentions of the scene, and there are several indications that the chemistry between Darling and Apple is just not there.

Aside from the fact EAH creators already stated on Facebook that they aren’t lovers, there were signs long before the post that they weren’t mean to be.

2018-05-12 (2)

As told in recent fairy tales (not Grimm Brothers, who actually told a completely different story), “true love’s kiss” can only work when the person kissing the princess has prior romantic feelings for her. In Apple and Darling’s case, neither one of them have ever shown signs that they were romantically “in love” with each other prior to the CPR.  Even if the princes didn’t know the princesses so well, there were at least obvious signs they were physically attracted to the princesses. In Darling’s case, she hardly seems interested in Apple or even girls LIKE Apple. Therefore, how can it be that Darling is Apple’s “true love’s kiss” in this case? The only “loving” feeling Darling Charming has shown in the series is the love of friends…and it was that love for one of her friends that led her to try and save Apple’s life. This is definitely the “family-friendly” message a Mattel product would be sending.

Friendship is a recurring theme throughout the Dragon Games movie, as with all of these movies and shows nowadays. With Frozen proving that the love of a sister is more powerful than romantic love and with My Little Pony‘s “Friendship is Magic” motto, Ever After High wants to use the same effective message to increase the bond of their female characters. They seemed determined to prove that the love between friends was just as powerful, if not more powerful, than “romantic” love.

Second, as the series seems to lean toward the “rebel” side of things, it’s also likely that the movie seemed to be showing that “true love’s kiss” isn’t necessary and is basically non-existent. Though it’s still considered pretty “magical” in the fairytale world, it is really looked at as an outdated joke, especially among those characters that want to re-write their own destinies.

Darling is one of those characters that just doesn’t care about destiny. She defied her destiny. Darling’s destiny was to be the next “Princess Charming”. In tradition, according to the Ever After High book Once Upon a Time: A Story Collection (canon to the series, as author Shannon Hale works with the web series as well), princess charmings were mostly damsels-in-distress. This was her actual destiny.

So, obviously, it’s not possible for her to have been destined to be “princess charming” or the “hero” in Apple White’s story. She wasn’t destined to save anyone and become their true love. Her destiny wasn’t even intertwined with “true love’s kiss”. She doesn’t seem to be following any one set story (considering she saved Duchess from a tower in a recent book and took on the alias as the White Knight in the Way to Wonderland episodes), and she wouldn’t let one act of heroism decide love for her either, even if she were “destined” to be Apple White’s “true love”. It’s likely she’d just rebel against that, too. She doesn’t appear to be the kind of character that likes to be controlled by “written destinies”.

She chose to become a savior rather than a damsel-in-distress. She decided NOT to follow any destiny she doesn’t want to, and that includes the concept of “true love’s kiss”. That’s why I believe she chose to perform “CPR” instead of a real kiss.

Overall, making a choice doesn’t equal destiny.

Furthermore, from her profile, she has stated the type of “guys” she likes.

How could Mattel “intend” to make her Apple White’s “true love” if they already set her up to be interested in “guys”? They might have some “love” between them, like a sisterly or friendly love (though they never talked much or interacted much before the Dragon Games movie), but romantic lovers is a far-reaching conclusion.

Darling stated she “likes guys who are pure of heart”. This might change. She could have a coming out story later, maybe coming to terms with her attraction to girls, but I doubt that Apple White would be the one to drive her there.

Apple White has shown herself not to be “pure of heart” in any way (And I theorize that she’s REALLY the evil Queen). I mean, the girl is vain, looks in the same magic mirror that the evil queen once used, manipulates people and situations to achieve her own selfish desires, and does not have Snow White’s features (“hair black as ebony wood” is missing).

Darling Charming’s best friends are Raven Queen and Rosabella Beauty, girls that she admire for being “strong and standing up for what they believe in”. These are the types of girls she likes. Apple White has no part of that in her personality. If everything were left to Royal Apple White, Darling would still be a damsel!

Yes, Darling dared to “kiss”(perform CPR) on Apple, rescuing her the way any Prince Charming would. But if you think Apple White is the only princess she has saved, think again! It more than likely won’t be the last princess she “kisses” or performs CPR on. So are we to think that every princess she saves will be her true love?

In the Ever After High book Once upon a Twist: Duchess Lets Down Her Hair, Darling Charming rescues Duchess from a tower (usually the role of the prince). Normally, all the knights that rescue the damsels from the tower end up falling in love with the maiden. Darling saved Duchess. So, are they lovers now, too? It’s obvious that Darling just wants to be a hero and she wants to prove she’s just as capable of being a knight as her brothers and other male knights.

Now, we can take comfort in the fact that rather than be “destined” to kiss (or perform CPR) on Apple White, Darling simply chose to do it, which means she didn’t feel compelled or obligated to do it because of some written “fate”. At the same time, we also have to keep in mind that by choosing her own destiny, her actions won’t lead anywhere she doesn’t want it to.

This might mean she won’t see love like other “Prince” Charmings have. Most of those princes fell in love with the girl they kissed rather quickly, mostly just by looking at the girl, and some of them never truly developed a relationship with the princesses. Darling might not look at love the same way, and I am quite sure she would be much smarter about love than that. Darling has shown that she would rather get to know a person before claiming she’s “in love” with them.

Third, let’s look at the scene in totality. Yeah, sure, when the “kiss” (or CPR) happened, there was a magical “light” and she ended up coughing up a cloud of smoke. But if Darling really gave her true love’s kiss, wouldn’t the surrounding characters have reacted in a stronger way? “True Love’s Kiss” is a big deal in the fairytale universe (even if it is seen as mostly a myth). Darling Charming, as well as all the other characters in the movie, treated the whole scene as if it wasn’t a big deal, not as if the characters assumed Darling was destined to be Apple’s “true love”. Everyone was happy that Apple White was “saved”, but they didn’t acknowledge or question why Darling was the one to awaken Apple. Darling didn’t even think anything of it. Usually, when something is emphasized, like “true love’s kiss”, the narrator usually highlights it so that all surrounding viewers can fully understand what is being implied. But in this scene, the other characters (Even Darling!) just laugh it off nervously and make Apple believe it was Daring. Couldn’t it also be that there was a magical light because it was a magical curse that was uplifted? As the series is continuing to encourage that all characters can write their own destinies, this scene seems to be another nod to that revolutionary idea rather than the idea that Darling is her “true love”.

Some people have suggested that if it was really meant to be just CPR, then it would have been done “right” using the Heimlich Maneuver.  However, that is actually incorrect in this situation.  Darling actually did the only thing possible in this situation. I personally had a chance to take CPR courses myself.  What I discovered is that HM only works when the person is responsive enough to stand on their two feet.  When the choking victim becomes UNRESPONSIVE and unable to stand, there is no way you can perform HM (abdominal thrusts). You must perform CPR to get the person breathing again.  You give a couple of breaths first then apply pressure to the chest.   Darling started by breathing in air into Apple which was the right move. Despite the fact that it was just CPR, I do think it was supposed to be a nod to “true love’s kiss”, even if Darling isn’t really Apple’s “true love”.

The magical light and the coughed-out “smoke” (which others have confused for a heart) could’ve been the aftereffects of a broken spell. I believe the irony was the fact that true love’s kiss wasn’t needed and that a simple, unmagical solution, such as CPR, was enough. After all, the evil queen never said that “true love’s kiss” was the only way to break this spell in this story at all.

Finally, the Dragon Games scene seems to be a play on the Grimm Brother’s story of Snow White. It’s paying homage to the original tale. After all, they are the ones who “created” Ever After High.

The reason why most people have associated Snow White‘s story with “true love’s kiss” is because of Disney. What is irritating is that most people are only familiar with Disney’s version of these tales. It was my main gripe with Alice in Wonderland. Trying to explain to others how the 1985 Alice in Wonderland version was the most accurate adaptation is still an aggravating challenge…

The original story of Snow White mirrors Apple White’s situation in the Dragon Games movie. In the original Snow White tale, Snow White also choked on a poison apple. No one could revive her, NOT EVEN THE PRINCE. Snow White was actually awakened by the Prince’s SERVANTS! While carrying Snow White’s coffin, they stumbled on some roots and the poison chunk was lodged out of her throat

The original Grimm tale NEVER SAID “true love’s kiss” would break the spell. That’s Disney’s version. Therefore, a kiss was never needed to begin with! Therefore, it isn’t an indication of Darling’s love for Apple. It’s an indication that just about any solution could break the spell, without a prince’s kiss, just like in the original Snow White tale.

Read about the original story here: Grimm Brother’s Snow White

Considering Ever After High puts a lot of emphasis on “changing” destinies, the confusion surrounding the tales fit with the EAH series in a strange way. Because there are so many versions of these fairytales, it further shows that the characters have many destinies they can follow and can even write their own futures. If we were to assume that the “kiss” (CPR) makes Darling her “destined” true love, it would contradict with the message behind the Dragon Games movie and the message of the whole Ever After High series. That message encourages the characters to decide their own futures. Therefore, Darling is only Apple’s “true love” if Apple feels she should be. At this moment in time, Apple has not shown any romantic interest in Darling before or after the scene.

An EAH fan brought something to my attention as well: What may have lead Apple White to believe that a “kiss” was in her destiny may have been due to the fact that her mother told her a distorted view of her own tale. Snow White was asleep when the poisoned apple was lodged out of her throat. She really didn’t know WHO saved her! In the story, all she saw was a handsome prince standing before her. He did explain what had happened but from his perspective. She may not have known that a bump in the road is what saved her life. If Apple White were to truly follow in her mother’s footsteps, the reality is that Apple White is NEVER GOING TO GET “TRUE LOVE’S KISS”. But seeing as the story focuses on choosing our own destinies, hopefully she discovers that she can create her own “happy-ever-after”.

One fan of EAH, Sorafanchick,  made an interesting comment on Youtube about the controversy:

My theory is that in the EAH universe their  “destinies” are actually moreso “written destinies” rather than literal fate. These were “written destinies” in the Storybook Of Legends that characters were at one point forced to fulfill. These written “destinies” were formed into a contract and placed in the Storybook of Legends.  By signing The Storybook of Legends, each character was supposed to seal their “written” destinies, vowing to live just as their parents did and vowing to follow the laws of the Fairytale world. Remember Legacy Day? But when Raven tore the pages out of the Storybook of Legends and gave it to everyone in the Way to Wonderland movie, this allowed everyone to write their own destinies and make their own choices as to how their destinies should be fulfilled. This also gave Apple the freedom to choose how her destiny will be fulfilled.  Of course, Apple has always been more conservative than the others.

In the movie Dragon Games, which of course, comes to us a few years after the original “Legacy Day” webisode, the Dragon Games movie teaches Apple White that even if she does follow in her mother’s footsteps…how she chooses to go about doing that is her choice.  This means that she doesn’t have to do exactly as her mother did to gain the same results of “happily ever after”.  She learns that she can still fulfill the destiny “written” for her, and yet still she can also choose how and when that “written” destiny will be fulfilled.

I will also talk about Apple’s excitement with “true love’s kiss” and what may have happened as to why she believed this would happen in her future if she chooses to live like Snow White.
In the original Snow White story, I don’t believe Snow White actually KNEW how she awakened that day. (It is only the readers that are made aware that a piece of apple was lodged in her throat). The only thing Snow White saw when she awakened was a handsome prince standing over her. So I believe in the EAH series that Snow White believed her prince awakened her, thus she may have told Apple that a Prince will awaken her with “True Love’s Kiss” as well (with Snow White still actually being unaware of how she herself was awakened).
I believe that Mattel played on this trope, too. When Apple White awakens she is a little bewildered and then she also wakes up to see Daring standing over her (just like her mother Snow White did). Apple then asks “did my prince wake me up?” lol Only her friends know that she was not awakened by the prince, but Apple is left not knowing how she awakened.

Raven’s mother wanted to force the “written destiny” to be fulfilled, hence why she sent a poison apple and hence why the things transpired the way they did in Dragon’s Games.  This caused Apple to temporarily fall into the same situation her mother once was in.  Just as Raven’s evil mother wanted. But the difference is that the people around Apple make their own dreams and destinies come true, and instead of waiting for destiny, they took matters into their own hands. Rather than wait for destiny to be fulfilled (with [the prince’s servants] carrying Apple or a Prince’s kiss), Apple’s friend Darling, who is the most heroic and clever of the team, realizes that there may be another way to awaken Apple White.  She decides to use CPR so that Apple White can cough up the poison. In turn, this saves the day.

I do believe that sometimes Mattel does play around with the literal fates of the characters. lol The reason for this has a lot to do with Mattel wanting to highlight the character’s fairytale stories while still giving each character their own free will to choose how the story will end or begin.  After all, mostly the characters are identified more so by their respective fairytales rather than anything else in the EAH franchise, right?  So some things will seem a part of their “destinies”, simply because the characters are meant to represent certain fairytales…which means there will be bits and pieces from their original fairytales inculcated within the webisodes and movies. Their original fairytales were how they were born and how they became to be who they are as of right now. This is why Apple White pretty much ended up in the same situation as her mother at that one time.  But how she was awakened and how her story at that time ended was totally different from the original Snow White story.  This shows us that how the characters’ own personal stories are told in their FUTURES, regardless of their pasts or regardless of their origins, is still entirely up to the students of EAH no matter how many times their parents try to force their “written” destinies upon their children. We are ALL influenced by our own past and origins…therefore it will always be apart of our world…but what we do with our past and origins is actually entirely up to US.  We can’t control our past and origins, but we can control our futures.  I think this is the lesson The Dragon Games was teaching and really what the entire EAH series is teaching us.

I don’t believe Darling Charming was set up by Mattel to necessarily be Apple White’s destined true love.  If this is what Mattel wanted, they would’ve given more hints and there would have been some sort of astonishment from Apple White’s friends about it.  But nothing was said.  In fact, Darling herself was not astonished that she was the one to awaken Apple. Even if actions do awaken true love instead of the being itself…, still I would think that the characters and especially Darling would have given a bigger reaction than they did. After all, being someone’s true love’s kiss is usually a BIG DEAL in the fairytale universe, right?  But because there was hardly any reaction to this scenario that took place, to me this means that Darling’s CPR was not meant to be something important to the destiny of both characters.  To me, this means Mattel didn’t intend for this situation to mean anything life-changing…hence why they never made the characters react to the situation.

No one was astonished that it was Darling that awakened her.  Darling herself was not astonished or amazed or questioning why it was her instead of Daring, either.  Instead, everyone carried on as if it was no big deal.  And usually in movies and stories when a person awakens their “true love”, doesn’t this cause the characters to feel some sort of connection?  Darling just moved on and didn’t really care. She performed CPR and that was it. Her mission was completed.  That is how it felt to me.  And then no one else really cared to say anything and everyone just kind of chuckled as if they realized “True Love’s Kiss” was not needed after all.  This also led me to believe that the characters did not see this as “True Love’s Kiss”; that Mattel was not technically trying to imply Darling is Apple’s true love. The casual reaction from everyone led me to believe that Mattel wanted to play on storybook tropes, using empowering feminist messages that men are not the only ones who save the day; that other women can too in their own special way. Mattel has always encouraged that women can also save the day, and in this case they wanted to show that Darling Charming has her own way of saving Damsels in distress.  Instead of a kiss, she used something as simple as CPR to do the trick, which actually turned out to be what helped.  She defied storybook stereotypes; that only true love’s kiss can awaken the princess….I think this is what Mattel was intending to show in this regard.

For both lesbians and non lesbian women, the situation still redefines the idea that a princess must always be kissed by a prince. 🙂    I just do not think it was Mattel’s original intention to make Darling Charming Apple’s true love in the future, and my reasons why are as I stated above.  If anything, I believe Apple and Raven have a stronger future together than Darling and Apple. Even one of the producers has acknowledged this pairing on tumblr.

And I agree, regardless of the intentions of the creators, it still really is a step forward. However, I believe that companies are still trying to “play it safe” and stick to friendship stories. Now, if this was Raven kissing Apple…then I believe it would mean something.

What Does He Want You To See in Him? By the signs (Masculine Identity)

21 Mar

Mars Symbol Small

If you don’t understand much about zodiac signs and you are new to planetary signs, aspects, and houses, read the introduction here.

Mars is the planet of war, aggression, drive, assertion, energy, force, the sex drive, and male sexuality. He represents how we express our passionate natures and how we obtain anything we desire. Mars also represents drive, energy, and freedom. Mars is instinctive about survival. It can also represent frustration and aggression. Mars wants us to compete, to fight, and to climb over obstacles in life. He wants to accomplish something and be independent. He thrives on the rush of the moment. Really, he just wants to release some tension.

The sign he enters shows HOW we express our passion and drive. The house he enters shows WHERE we express our passion and drive. The aspects show how difficult or easy it is to use his energies in our life and how much of it we use.

Ever heard of the saying “Men are from Mars, women are from Venus”?

Men-Mars-Women-Venus-Cover

In a man’s chart, Mars is his ruler. This is more of a socialized condition than anything. We have all of these planets in our charts and are capable of using anything for survival. But in our society, men tend to connect more with Mars than women do. Even though women are more active today, women still shy from most of the principles of Mars and women still expect men to be more active and driven than they are. Thus, Mars tends to tell men a lot about their own status as “men” and their identities in relation to their peers. Mars is considered one of the social planets, though not quite as sociable as Venus.

Mars also reveals what how men go after the women, what they do to impress the woman they want.

Why are men so associated with Martian sexuality (and not women)? Mars is supposed to be the planet that represents sex directly. But since women are more encouraged to channel their yearnings into romance, the actual act is far less important for them. Men, on the other hand, are taught something different. The article 5 Lies that Distort Male Sexuality by Jamie Utt and Men’s Sexual Response by David Delvin expresses that men are often taught to see sex as something for their own pleasure “rather than their partner’s”. Men are often encouraged to see sex as a conquest and to have as many partners as they can. Thus, relationships are seen more as a game or a battlefield. Their role is to try to be the conqueror. This is very similar to the principles associated with Mars.

Men are taught they have to be “in control” sexually. Men feel pushed to be adequate sexually. As a result, men are likely to take sexual risks to build their experience and confidence, regardless of the consequences. They are not shamed for exploring their sexuality to the fullest. On the other hand, a man who can’t have sex for whatever reason will feel a heavy burden. He will feel more pressure to perform and others will make him feel like a loser. Men will more than likely feel “unhappy with their partners” and “disaffected with life” if their partners are not having sex with them. A man will also usually feel “desolate” if the object of his affections reject his sexual advances.

Mars can be a very powerful planet for men, blessing them with freedom, strength, energy, and leadership abilities. But Mars can curse them with rivals and enemies, competition, aggression, violence, tension, and loneliness.

Readers may remember my article regarding men and Venus.

What Does He See in YOU? by the signs

Venus and Mars are two relationship planets in our charts. For most men, Venus is projected onto women. He may often expect women to express qualities he himself doesn’t feel “allowed” to express. Men with Mars in his ruling signs (Aries or Scorpio) or in his exalted placement (Capricorn) have a harder time living up to the principles of Venus and will project their energies more. Men with Mars in detriment (Taurus or Libra) and his falling placement (Cancer) have an easier time with Venus and don’t project as much.

In a man’s chart, Venus represents his feminine ideal, a woman he is drawn to and attracted to. This is the woman he thinks is sexy, good, and perfect.

So if men project Venus on women, how can Mars influence what they expect from women? This is a tricky question and yet simple at the same time. Though men are drawn to certain women because of feminine energies, they still feel they deserve to be catered to by even the most passive woman. Quite frankly, men aren’t so soft. A softer woman would have trouble keeping up with his sex drive, wouldn’t understand his activities, and wouldn’t have the energy to make themselves useful in his life. Venus is superficial. Sometimes, Mars helps us see beyond the superficial and understand what people do and how people really behave.

Women can benefit  from reading this article. This article is useful for women who have a hard time understanding the male mind and may feel confused when dating a man. They may notice that though a man may say he is attracted to her and would often talk about how special she is, he may expect her to treat him the total opposite! So, women may find men difficult to please in this way. Well, women, worry no more! If you look into his natal chart and observe his signs, aspects, and house placements, you will understand him better.

Because men project Venus, this can create some conflict with Mars, especially if there are harsh aspects between the two planets. A good example of this complicated love life would be shown through Michael Jackson’s music. He has Venus in Leo with his Mars in Taurus. Having Venus in Leo, it’s clear he was drawn to dynamic women in his lifetime. Many of the women he was drawn to (as well as those drawn to him) wanted to be a “star”, much like the sun-ruled Leo! In songs like “Dirty Diana” and “Billie Jean”, he mentions women wanting “fortune and fame”, seeking him out just to get media attention. Though he may later dislike these women, he’s initially drawn to them allowing them into his life in the first place. So why does he dislike her later? When thinking about this question, we first have to observe how he sees himself. In music videos like “The Way You Make Me Feel” and “Bad”, we can tell that he’s really a peaceful guy like his fixed earthy Mars in Taurus suggests. He’s actually really affectionate and artistic. He doesn’t see himself as aggressive. He’s more easy-going and pleasant. MJ would rather use his music to impress a girl rather than any bold or assertive tactics. He’s really a loyal, stable man who hates drama! The problem is he keeps attracting drama to himself!

Michael Jackson’s Mars is how he wants to be seen, so it’s how he wants to be treated.

For MJ,  the “drama girl” is him projecting his own “dramatic nature”. He’s only perceiving these women as dramatic. But we can never truly know what’s going inside of a person. We aren’t them. Each person has their own natal charts that may reveal things we may not even expect from a person. The woman he perceives as dramatic and attention seeking may see herself as someone else entirely and may just be reacting to him!  Inside, he’s the one being drawn to the fame, attention, and drama. It’s his internal “Drama King” that has led him to people that bring drama to his life. This is probably why he’s the “King of Pop” in the first place!

In a gay man’s chart, he tends to balance both his masculine and feminine energies well in a relationship, considering he may not feel the need to be the dominant one or the submissive one. He may even use both energies interchangeably. Still, he may feel pressure to conform, like all the other men. Society will make him feel out-of-place if he’s not like other men. He may also feel he has to defend himself more, causing him to express more assertive and strong-willed tendencies. He may not project his Venus on a potential  partner, but he may end up projecting Venus on women in general or on close female friends.

In a woman’s chart, Mars tends to reflect the qualities she would rather project on men and reveals her idea of the “ideal” man. A gay woman is likely to own both her own Mars and Venus, but may not really consider Mars as important as Venus in relationships.

Male Identity: Mars first enters his own domain when he enters the sign of Aries. Aries is a cardinal fire sign. Here he is at his best, free to be as forceful and assertive as he would like to be. He can get the most accomplished here.

Some Mars in Aries men would like to be seen as strong, assertive, and passionate in the eyes of the object of their affection. They would like someone they’re interested in to see them as super masculine.

Other Mars in Aries men would like their love interests to see them for who they really are. These men like to let it all hang out and be themselves. They are not the most refined types and they are strongly independent. Many times, they aren’t really too serious about anything, not even relationships. They would want a partner to accept everything about them and have fun. So, in this case, no matter what their Venus, they can’t stay with people who restrict them in any way.

When trying to impress the object of his affection, Mars in Aries men are generally forward. They aren’t the types to put on airs. They will make you see how interested they are in you. They act confident, even when they don’t always feel confident.

Some may do daring stunts or fight for the object of their affection, all just to impress this person. They may join competitions or show off at a sporting event. When out with someone they like, they try to take initiative. They might be the ones to pay the bill, even when they weren’t asked to. They are the types to ask for a dance without waiting to see if their partner wants to. They act to make sure things go the way they want it to go.

His weakness is he can be selfish when pursuing the object of his affections. He may not be considerate about the time or place or the person’s circumstances. He may mostly choose dates that are filled with activities he wants to try. Generally, he isn’t accommodating, and would rather have a partner who is on the same page. This would allow him to freely take the lead.

Any activities he may enjoy doing with someone has to be exciting and thrilling. They can’t sit still. He may enjoy motorcycling with a love interest, attending a sporting event with a love interest, or even skydiving with a love interest! These activities are sure to get him pumped for another date.

Sexually, these men are passionate. They jump right into sex if they can. They tend to have sex after just one date! However, they tend to be rather forceful, quick, and selfish in the bedroom. They might forget to please their partners and may be more concerned with pleasing themselves. They are generally looking for a partner that has the same drive anyway, so they would want someone who finds pleasure in the same things they do.

They get impatient when they have to wait for sex, though they might also like the challenge.

Mars in Taurus

4175-1558

Male Identity: Mars enters the domain of Venus, his opposite planet, when he moves into Taurus. Taurus is a fixed earth sign. Mars doesn’t feel very comfortable here. Mars is in detriment. Taurus is an easy-going energy. Mars is active and assertive. Taurus takes its time and finishes things on its own time. Mars wants everything done now. Venus is the planet of beauty and charm. Taurus lends the men with this placement attractive qualities. Mars would rather impress others with its actions.

Just because these men have a detrimental placement doesn’t mean they don’t aim to be masculine. In fact, some Mars in Taurus men want their love interests to see them as a traditionally strong man. They want to be the rock in their relationship.

Others want their love interests to see them as people who are affluent, practical, patient, and calm. They would like their love interests to find them attractive, charming, and appealing to all the senses. They particularly try to smell good.

In order to impress their love interests, these men generally like to shell out money or other resources they have. They pick up the tab. They also try to impress their love interests by looking their best, showing calm in a chaotic situation, and by picking and lifting heavy things (just to prove how strong they are).

They might show off a business they own or work for. They might take their love interests to the finest restaurants, just to show they have exquisite taste.

Taurus is ruled by the throat. These men might sing their love interest a song.

Their weakness is they are not open to trying new things. They might do the same things to try to impress their love interests. They might seem a bit conservative or rigid in many ways, too. They generally do what they’re comfortable with. Some people might find this boring.

They are also possessive. They might feel they own a lover when they’ve only gone on one date with someone. They get jealous rather easily.

They are also rather hesitant when approaching a love interest. They aren’t really “go-getters”. This isn’t to say they can’t be outgoing, but when it comes to getting what they want, they take their time. Some may lack confidence or may not be comfortable trying new things for fear of losing their security. Or they just don’t think that they should have to exert too much energy.

Sexually, they enjoy all the sensual pleasures. They like the touch, smells, sounds, and sights of a sexual experience. Venus plays a major role in this regard. He can only be turned on for sex if he’s attracted to his partner. He’s a patient man, and may not like to jump right in. He may enjoy a little pleasurable foreplay or teasing.

He also needs to be comfortable in order to enjoy sex. A comfortable bed or couch is preferable.

Look at his Venus sign to get an idea of what pleases him. Read the Mars sign on this page that is closest. For instance, if he has Venus in Gemini, find Mars in Gemini.

Generally, once he gets started, he can go all night if he wants to. He’s not a rough or experimental man, but he loves playing around with food, whipped cream, sensual baths, and petals of sweet-smelling roses.

Mars in Gemini

gemini

Male Identity: When Mars enters Gemini, he’s entering the domain owned by Mercury. There are many things Mars has in common with Gemini, and some things he’s not so comfortable with. Gemini is a mutable air sign. Gemini is a busy, busy energy. Mars likes to keep busy. But Gemini is so scattered it lacks focus. Mars likes to accomplish things and likes to focus on one thing at a time. Mars is very direct.

Mars in Gemini men typically want their love interests to see them as fun, charming, clever, intelligent, experienced, and socially aware. They want their love interests to find them funny and unique.

Mars in Gemini men impress their love interests first by flirting, talking with their love interest, and trying to them with their wit.

Next, they would try to be more adaptable to impress their love interests. They would rearrange their schedules and bend backwards to make time for their love interests. They would also try many different creative ways of getting their love interest’s attention.

Another thing they would try to do to impress their love interests by taking their lovers out to all the newest and trendiest spots. They want to show their love interest how open-minded and cultured they are. They might introduce their lover to some fascinating locations they’ve been to, possibly a place their partner hasn’t been to, so they can seem like they’ve experienced a lot. They might show off how smart they are by fixing their love interest’s smartphone or by engaging in an intellectual conversation. They may show interest in a book or article their love interest is reading and they may share whatever it is they’re reading. And they really love to crack jokes. They might crack jokes all night.

Mostly, they try to show a mental interest in their partner. They want their partner to know that they are interested in the mind. That’s why they’re ruled by Mercury. Look at his Mercury sign to get an idea of his conversation. Read the Mars sign on this page that is closest. For instance, if he has Mercury in Cancer, find Mars in Cancer.

They try to impress their lovers in clever ways. They are likely to have little treasure hunts or leave notes leading to places they want to have dates. They send clever and interesting gifts. They want their love interests to be mentally engaged with them.

Because they are ruled by Mercury, they might like to move-that means dance! They might like to show off their dance moves or make their lovers laugh with the way they dance.

His weakness is he can be a little immature. They have a little boyishness about themselves all their lives. Not only do they like to crack jokes, they like to tease and play pranks. They can be mischievous. They also talk A LOT. In fact, they have nervous and wiry energy. They can’t sit still, they don’t listen long, and they talk, talk, talk.

Sexually, these men like to experiment. They are open sexually. They like to try new things. They generally want a partner who is open to new things too, otherwise they will seek multiple partners to satisfy their need for variety.

They generally don’t get too emotionally wrapped up in their sexual partners. Sex is just a fun activity for them. They aren’t the most passionate sex partners, but they’re a whole lot of fun. They generally enjoy quickies. They get bored if they do too much on the first night. They like to leave a little surprise for later.

Mars in Cancer

cancer

Male Identity: When Mars enters Cancer, he enters the sign ruled by the Moon. Mars falls in this sign. Cancer is a cardinal water sign. The Moon is the planet of emotions, most associated with women in general, the mother, the “motherland”, and our early home environment or our roots. Mars is a masculine planet, associated with independence, which separates him from his roots. These men often feel a pull. They want to be close to their families, to keep traditions strong, but they also want to be independent and be seen as their own man.

Mars in Cancer men want their love interests to see them in many different lights. Some may want their love interests to see them as strong and protective. They may want their love interests to feel safe around them.

Others may want their partners to see them as good providers and family men.

Other men with this placement may want their love interests to see them as sweet, thoughtful, and understanding.

Mars in Cancer men often try to impress the object of their affections in indirect ways. They try to be there for a love interest whenever they can. They conveniently keep themselves in the presence of their love interest. They try to be a listening ear or “best friend” to a love interest. They should be careful this doesn’t put them in the “friend zone”.

Mars in Cancer men generally try to protect their love interests in even the smallest ways. They walk on the dirtiest side of the sidewalk. When it’s raining, they give their jackets and umbrellas to their love interest. If there’s only two items of food left, they let their love interest have the last bite. They try to pay for everything on a date to show they can provide security.

They might try to protect their love interests in major ways as well. They might fight anyone who insults or harms their love interests in any way. They might avoid locations that can even put their love interest in danger.

They try to remember important things. They try to remember birthdays, anniversaries, or the names of all the members of their love interest’s family. They are likely to introduce their love interest to their own family.

His weakness is that he’s rather sensitive and clingy. He may seem a little insecure. He might follow a lover around like a shadow and may always be suspicious. Or he may just be super sensitive to any little jokes thrown his way. The Moon would reveal more about his emotional temperament. Look at his Moon sign to see more about his sensitivities. Find the Mars sign on this page that mirrors it best. For example, if he has Moon in Leo, find Mars in Leo.

He’s also incredibly shy. He might have a difficult time taking initiative in some ways. It’s hard for him to be DIRECT. He just doesn’t go for who he wants and waits to see if his crush is interested in him first.

Sexually, they enjoy sex more when they feel secure in a relationship. They literally have to have feelings for a person to really feel fulfilled in a sexual partnership. They may not necessarily have to wait for marriage, but they need to at least feel their partner is the one or they have to feel like the only one in their partner’s life.

They are generally moody sexually. They might enjoy different things according to their moods. Sometimes, they may be soft and gentle, albeit a bit traditional and conservative. They still might enjoy some romantic foreplay, like a nice bath or meal at home together beforehand. Other times, they may be rough and aggressive. It all depends. Overall, though, they prefer sex to be performed in a secure and comfortable environment, mostly at home.

Mars in Leo

Leo

Male Identity: When Mars enters Leo, he enters the Sun’s domain. Mars’s own sign, Aries, is exalted when the Sun enters it. This shows that Mars has a lot in common with Leo. Leo is a fixed fire sign. Mars is a masculine planet and the Sun is considered a masculine planet. The Sun represents the father and manhood. Mars is the masculine principle. Yet, when two dominate forces combine, they are bound to bump heads eventually. Leo is all about “attention” and putting on a “show”. It wants lovers and admirers. It wants to be important. Mars is only concerned with accomplishing goals, overcoming obstacles, and getting what it wants. It’s a planet of action, not “displays” of action.

Mars in Leo men want to be seen as confident, generous, popular, attractive, affluent, and creative in the eyes of their love interest. They might also want their love interests to see them as strong dominant. Some may want to be seen as fun and adventurous.

If they could, they would want their love interests to see them as the ultimate man, anything and everything to anybody. They would want their love interests to always see the best in them, so they often seek to highlight their strengths rather than their weaknesses.

They might try to impress a love interest by bringing attention to themselves and their love in some way. They might sing to a lover, give open proposals, or carry loud signs stating their love. Whatever they do to impress a lover, they like to do it big! And with a whole bunch of people witnessing it all.

They generally like to give a lot to their love interests. They pay for everything. Heck, they may pay for everyone in the restaurant if they have the money like that! Some of them like to appear like they have that kind of money, even when they don’t.

They might take on dares or try to win competitions to impress their love interests.

They love to make their love interests laugh. They like to be the one to keep their love interests entertained.

They might throw large parties or have double dates with a large number of friends and fans just to show off how popular they are. They even want to show off how desirable they are. They may get a kick out of other women flirting with them and making a love interest jealous. They should be careful with this tendency.

These men like to be creative when trying to impress someone. They don’t want to imitate other men or fade in the background as just another guy. They want to stand out and be noticed by someone they like. Whatever it is they decide to do to impress someone they like, it will be unforgettable.

Their weakness is their ego. The Sun would tell you more about that. Look for the Mars sign that’s closest. For instance, if he has Sun in Virgo, look for Mars in Virgo.

While they like to do the most to impress someone, they tend to do things in front of people, not considering the feelings of the person they are trying to woo. It could be a stab to their ego to be turned down or rejected. And then, because they do everything so flashy, they end up embarrassed, too!

They also tend to get frustrated when they’re rejected after doing the most for a love interest. The love interest may not have asked them to go broke or embarrass themselves, but they still might feel salty towards the person they did all of that for. They can’t take outright rejection too well. They should try to be a little less flashy so they won’t feel the loss. They should also try to consider other people’s feelings. Not everyone cares for the flash.

Some people might get the impression that they do things for the show and that they aren’t really serious.

Sexually, these men can be fun, adventurous, and romantic. They generally want to have a good time and they want their partners to feel they had a good time, too. They like their egos stroked.

They may want to dominant though. Some of them want to give, and don’t leave any room for the other person. On the other hand, some may expect the partner to do everything like a humble servant. Some of them may be more concerned with their own satisfaction, they forget to make sure their partner is satisfied. But they don’t like to be talked about negatively, so they will try to satisfy as best they can.

Mars in Virgo

virgo

Male Identity: Mars enters the other area belonging to Mercury when it enters Virgo. Virgo is a mutable earth sign. Mars has some things in common with the mutable sign, and some things he doesn’t really feel comfortable with. Virgo is a busy, hard-working sign. Mars likes to keep busy and get things accomplished. But Virgo is earthy, practical, and a little more cautious. Virgo is also scattered. Mars doesn’t hesitate to jump into things, regardless of the consequences. He’s also direct and focused.

Mars in Virgo men want to be seen as pleasing and efficient men. They want their partners to always be happy with them. They may expect themselves to be perfect. They would want their love interests to be easily satisfied because they feel pressure around high-maintenance individuals.

They might want their love interests to see them as hard-working, intelligent, resourceful, ingenious, and creative in some way. They want to be their love interest’s ideal.

They try to impress their love interests by being a humble servant. They will do ANYTHING for someone they are interested in. They will help you clean your house, take care of kids, do your homework, fix your car or bathroom sink (as they are “Mr. Fix-its), and they will even think with you and help you come to a decision.

They aren’t the flashy types. They might not propose to you on live television, but they will pick you up from work, take you out to dinner, and hand you a gift of roses.

These men tend to cater to every little detail when it comes to the things they want to do to impress someone. They plan each step carefully. They try to be creative in a simple way and thoughtful.  They try to show their love interests that they’re attentive and notice the little things about them. Mercury plays a role when it comes to what they actually pay attention to. Look at his Mercury sign and then find the Mars sign on this page that’s closes. For instance, if he’s Mercury in Libra, read Mars in Libra.

Their weakness is they’re perfectionists. Sometimes, they get so lost in the details, they forget the big picture. They might want everything to go so smoothly for a date they often forget why they created the date in the first place. They may focus so much on being the ideal lover they forget to highlight their own personal strengths and express who they really are.

They are also rather modest and shy. It’s hard for them to let go even on an easygoing date. They get nervous and often don’t know what to say or do in some situations, especially if there are things happening that they haven’t rehearsed or planned ahead of time. They may not go out of their way to be adventurous if they hadn’t planned to be.

Sexually, this men aim to please. They want their partner to be satisfied in every way. Just tell them what you want. They also appreciate a lover who takes initiative and aims to please them. They may never ask a lover to do this. They would hope a lover willingly wants to.

Again, they may get so caught in the details of a perfect sexual night, they may forget the greater picture. They might be too focused on the foreplay and getting it down perfectly, they may not get to the act.

Mars in Libra

libra

Male Identity: Mars enters another one of Venus’s signs, Libra-the cardinal air sign. Mars feels uncomfortable in this position. Mars is in detriment here. There are a lot of things about Libra that rubs Mars the wrong way. Though Libra is one of the extroverted, masculine signs, Libra is like Venus in the fact that it is passive-aggressive, balanced, and superficial. Mars has not time for indecision, moderation, and superficiality. Mars wants to come to quick decisions, go after whatever it wants with fierce intensity so that is can get what it wants faster, and doesn’t really care what anyone looks like while doing it. Libra cares about others; Mars is an independent energy. Libra baffles the planet Mars. Still, Libra is an energetic and positive placement, so Mars can have some fun along the way at times.

Mars in Libra men want their love interests to see them as charming, romantic, attractive, irresistible, fun, affluent, cultured or worldly, and intelligent. They want their lovers to be dazzled.

Generally, they aim to be a “ladies’ man”. They want their love interests to feel swept off of their feet.

They try to impress their love interests by tending to every romantic aspect they can think of. They buy the gifts, give the roses, send the cards, give the kisses and hugs, and they’re known for their chivalry.

They are the types to open the doors, pull out chairs, feed, and lift their love interests. They try to be the knight-in-shining-armor type. They pick their lovers up in a nice and clean vehicle (or even by horse and carriage). They try to look attractive, smell good, and wear a smile. They generally try to put their lovers at ease and win their lovers affections.

These men try to appear intelligent and well-mannered. They discuss sophisticated topics. They appreciate beauty and the arts. They may show off their knowledge in these areas. They might be artistic, musical, or a great dancer.

These men like for their love interests to see them as fun and adventurous. They might enjoy rock-climbing or horseback riding on the beach.

Their weakness is they have a difficult time taking initiative. They might be indecisive and may not know what to do around their love interests. They generally just do whatever their lover wants to do. If their lover is looking for them to make a decision, they will be disappointed. Their favorite thing to do is shrug and say “I don’t know. What about you?” They may try to take initiative but then second-guess many of their choices.

These men are really subtle in their approach. Somewhat, they may give the impression that they lack confidence because they don’t seem sure of themselves.

Another weakness of theirs is the fact that they are natural flirts. Though they are really romantic when they want to be, some people may feel like they treat all the girls the same. They may seem romantic and charming towards everyone, and it might make their love interest insecure. They may have too many obligations to people and may not know how to say “No” to other people’s advances.

Sexually, these men enjoy the sensual aspects of it all. They generally have to be attracted to someone they get sexually involved with, too. Venus plays a role in this. Analyze the Venus sign. Look at the Mars sign that’s closest. For instance, if his Venus is in Scorpio, look at Mars in Scorpio.

They may be adventurous and fun as well as romantic and sensual lovers. However, they aren’t usually too kinky and rough.

Mars in Scorpio

scorpio

Male Identity: Mars traditionally rules over Scorpio. It’s not surprising. Both have intense and passionate energies. Scorpio is a fixed water sign. On the outside, Scorpio is a quiet energy. Within, Scorpio boils with watery feelings that are channeled in a powerful way. Mars can certainly find an outlet for all of his intensity.

Mars in Scorpio men want their love interests to see them as powerful, resilient, wise, magnetic, passionate, and sexy. They don’t want to reveal too much about themselves until they trust the person they want, so they don’t mind being a little mysterious for awhile.

These individuals want their love interest to be wrapped in their spell.

They try to impress love interests by giving their all to the person, whether it be money, time, or energy. They are the types to do whatever it takes to win their love interest’s affections. They are not intimidated by rejection. They know who they want and they aim to get who they want. If it takes a soft romantic approach, they will do it. If it takes a forceful and assertive approach, they will do it. However, their favorite way of getting what they desire is in a quiet and secretive way. Generally, they aren’t the types to put on fancy airs. They feel out a person, get to know a person, and then go after them with everything they’ve got. They may have been observing who they want for a long time, long before anyone else knows.

They are willing to be a little vulnerable, but there still may be some things they keep close to them. If they really feel the person they want is truly to be trusted, they will let it all out.

Their weakness is their intensity. It does fuel their passionate drive. They never give up on trying obtain someone they want. But they do a little too much to try to get who they want. Some of them tend to go overboard, which can be a bit intimidating to others. They need to lighten up a little. Mars and Pluto show you more about his passion and depth. Look at the signs and find the Mars sign that’s closest on this page. For instance if he’s Mars and/or Pluto in Sagittarius, read Mars in Sagittarius.

They are also rather possessive. They may not give their love interest their space or freedom to think about who and what it is they want. Mars in Scorpio is known for giving ultimatums.

These men might also test their love interests, just to see how loyal or into them they really are. This can be frustrating and intimidating to people, too.

Sexually, Mars in Scorpio is famous for their magnetism and raw sexuality. They are passionate and really like to dive in deep into a sexual affair. Their style is not necessarily light, airy, and experimental, but they can be kinky. And they want everything a partner’s got.

They might explore too many sexual experiences within one night, and they may not leave enough for next time.

Some people may find their style to be too much, but those with the same passion will appreciate their sex drive.

Mars in Sagittarius

sagittarius

Male Identity: Mars enters the placement ruled by Jupiter. Mars has a lot in common with Sagittarius. Mars likes freedom and independence. Sagittarius likes freedom and independence. But like most mutable signs, Sagittarius scatters its mutable fire in various directions. Sagittarius is too freedom-loving. Mars needs focus and drive, otherwise he gets into trouble. So, there are things Mars is comfortable with and some things he’s not comfortable with here.

Mars in Sagittarius men want their love interests to see them as fun, good-humored, adventurous, honest, open-minded, achievement-oriented, and philosophical. They are ruled by Jupiter. Jupiter will shed more light. Check his Jupiter sign and then find the Mars sign that’s most similar. For instance, if he’s Jupiter in Capricorn, find Mars in Capricorn.

They want their love interests to notice their “no strings attached” approach. They can’t really maintain a long-term relationship with someone who clips their wings, no matter their Venus sign.

Mars in Sagittarius men seek to impress the object of their affections by sharing their adventures with the person. They generally want to appear exciting to the person they want. They may take on dares.

Some of them want to make their love interest laugh. They might try to impress the person with their humor.

They may try to prove their honesty in some way. They may lay cards down on the table about something most people wouldn’t reveal in an attempt to appear “open and honest”.

They might try new restaurants or other new locations, especially if it’s cultural or has an ethnic theme, just to show how open-minded they are.

They like to appear like they’ve achieved or want to achieve something. They may share their goals and dreams. They may exaggerate their achievements a little as well.

They might spend a lot of money on someone they’re interested in. They will max out their credit cards if they really want someone. They should be careful not to be so careless and extravagant. Generally, they tend to be overly optimistic about what they could do to please a love interest and may go overboard to do so.

They might try to appear intelligent or philosophical. They may quote some of their favorite philosophers and books. They might want to show they are spiritual men and may quote verses from religious texts. They often want to appear knowledgeable about the world, like they have a higher understanding.

Their weaknesses are their carelessness and irresponsibility. They generally don’t take things as seriously as maybe the object of their affections may want them, too. They are also not responsible when it comes to remembering their commitments or promises. They tend to talk a good game, but they don’t always deliver everything they aim to.

And because they don’t like their wings clipped, they may go from romantic interest to romantic interest, not really caring who’s heart they’re breaking along the way. They should be careful playing with people’s hearts.

Sexually, these men can be adventurous and fun. Sex can be like a sport to them. They generally like to be open and want the experience to be memorable. Maintaining their fidelity and loyalty may be an issue sometimes, but trying to maintain their loyalty through sex would not work. They may not see sex as a sign of commitment.

On the flip side, some of them may be so into their religions, they may follow their religious principles regarding sex.

Mars in Capricorn

capricorn

Male Identity: When Mars enters Capricorn, the sign ruled by Saturn, he enters his exalted position, his most effective state of being. This may shock people, considering Saturn is falling in Mars’s sign Aries and considering Capricorn is really not like Mars. It’s not that they have similar natures (that’s the role of Mars’s rulership signs). Mars is most EFFECTIVE in this sign, meaning he gets the most accomplished and finds the best channel for all of his energy. Usually, Mars is impulsive, passionate, and fast-paced in getting what he wants. In Capricorn, he can still be ambitious, but he’s able to channel his passionate energy towards goals and his career. He finds outlets for his anger instead of impulsively jumping into senseless fights he’s not prepared for. Capricorn allows Mars to be focused but slows down his pace a bit so that he can really accomplish MORE. But Capricorn doesn’t slow him down too much. Mars can still be a leader in this cardinal earth sign, but he’s more responsible with his actions. Capricorn disciplines Mars so that Mars can accomplish a great deal more. It may feel a little suffocating for Mars, but Mars won’t be disappointed. Mars has to make some sacrifices in this sign, but it’s well worth it in the end.

Mars in Capricorn men want to be taken seriously. They want the object of their affections to see them as dependable, responsible, ambitious, hard-working, and mature men. They want their love interests to see them as competent, cool, and in control.

When trying to impress their love interest, they are generally traditional and practical. They plan out what they are going to do and say before they ask someone out. Usually, they ask someone out formally, in a polite and respectful way.

They generally try to impress the object of their affections by showing off how dependable and responsible they are. They provide receipts of their labor. They like to show their love interest how many things they are responsible for. They might show off a home, car, business, or anything else that shows they can manage their lives well.

They might handle each situation in a mature fashion. They want their love interests to respect them, so they try not to fly off the handle in tense situations and they consider the safety of their partner. They will speak to protect their partner, but they won’t get in all-out brawls while they’re on a date.

Saturn, the planet of limitation and wisdom, is their ruler. Check his Saturn sign and find the Mars sign that’s similar. For instance, if he’s Saturn in Aquarius, read Mars in Aquarius.

They will be there for their love interest whenever their lover needs them. They try to be on time for dates and they try to make sure everything runs smoothly so that their date is comfortable.

They want their love interests to see that they have goals and that they aren’t just stuck in one position. They may discuss some of their goals and the steps they’re taking to reach them.

And they pay for everything! If they ask someone out, they will be the one to pull out the wallet. They aren’t unrealistic though. They buy within their budget and they will point out that they have limitations.

Their weakness is that they are a little too controlled and formal. They have a difficult time just letting loose and getting wild while around their love interest. They may expect everything to go exactly as they plan, and may get a little frustrated when things don’t. They have a bossy tendency as well, which sometimes makes them seem like a big brother or someone’s father.

Some people might find them to be a little formal and outdated in their approach. They aren’t necessarily spontaneous or creative people. They are simple and straightforward when asking someone out.

Sexually, they tend to like it raw and straightforward, like with everything they do. They don’t necessarily care about experimentation or kinks (though they might have some). They generally just like to get down to business.

Mars in Aquarius

aquarius

Male Identity: Aquarius is a fixed air sign, ruled by Saturn and Uranus. Mars has a lot in common with Aquarius. Aquarius is an independent and free energy. Mars likes independence and freedom. But Aquarius is rooted and doesn’t have the passion or drive Mars is used to. Saturn cools Aquarius’s normally erratic nature.

Mars in Aquarius men want the object of their affections to see them as original, unique, intelligent, cool, and independent.

These men are generally friendly and outgoing, and they don’t like people to see them sad, brooding, or depressing.

They try to impress the object of their affections by coming up with surprises. They want whatever they do to be unique and innovative. They want to switch up what they do and do something forward thinking. They want a potential lover to be impressed by their ingenuity.

They also want potential lovers to be impressed by their intelligence. They often talk about high-profile and sophisticated subjects. They normally produce controversial opinions on these topics, just to show that they are independent thinkers.

They want to appear cool and fun. Sometimes, they might seem like they are above petty feelings and behavior. They try to remain detached from situations. They try not to act too jealous or possessive. They try to give their love interest their freedom. They remain hands-off. They try to have a good time with everything and may try to make things easy for a potential love interest.

Even though they have a few ways they try to impress a love interest, nothing is as important to them as being with someone they are already in sync with. They don’t like having to do too much to try to impress someone. Either the person is impressed with them or not. They really can’t deal with high-maintenance and judgmental people too long. Of course they want to see their crush smile, but if the person they’re interested in looks down on everything they do, they will move right on.

Mars in Aquarius men’s weakness is that they are a little too detached and independent. They don’t get too personally involved with people, even people they are interested in. They aren’t the types to sit down and listen to a long sob story.

They do their own thing and expect a love interest to do the same. They are ruled by Saturn, the planet of limits and detachment, and Uranus, the planet of change and independence. Check out those signs and find the Mars sign that’s similar on this page. For instance, if his Saturn and/or Uranus is in Pisces, read Mars in Pisces.

They are also not the most passionate individuals. They won’t do the most just to win someone’s heart and they have a hard time coming out of the head and into the body. They aren’t usually “hugs-and-kisses” types. Sometimes, their cool act can be frustrating.

But then again, these men are full of surprises. You just never know with them. They might bottle up so much passion inside that it explodes later.

Sexually, these men are open-minded, into experimentation, and kinky. They get motivated when they are trying something new and different. They are the types to get into sexting, filming, cross-dressing, and even role-playing. The only thing that may be missing is the passion and the close intimacy. Sex for them is another experiment, not truly a display of their love.

Mars in Pisces

pisces

Male Identity: Pisces is ruled by Jupiter and Neptune. Pisces is a mutable water sign. Mars likes Pisces’s freedom-loving energy (thanks to Jupiter), but he’s not too fond of Pisces’s passive nature. It has some things in common with the sign, but there are a lot of differences.

Mars in Pisces men want to be seen as self-sacrificing, creative, alluring, and the ideal man. They want their love interests to really accept them overall. They are willing to be anything and everything for win the affections of someone they want.

Mars in Pisces men try to impress their love interests by basically being a chameleon. Whatever their lover needs, they are there. If their love interest is crying, they’re there to be a listening ear and fight their love interest’s battles. If their love interest is stuck in the snow, they will come by to help shovel that person out. If their love interest needs them to be romantic, they get creative. If their love interest needs them to back off, they will.

Their weakness is that they’re not the most direct men in the world. They aren’t the types to just say what they want or take initiative. They generally react to their partner’s demands. This can make them a bit of a doormat.

They also have an issue with pretending to be something they’re not. They don’t try to lie or be fake, but they don’t like disappointing their love interests either. So, some of them may stretch the truth and may pretend to be their love interest’s ideal just to make that person happy. Sometimes, though, this may not make them happy in the long run. There’s a difference between acting as prince for a night to please a lover, while your lover knows who you really are, and pretending you’re a prince when you’re really a pauper.

Sexually, these men have quite the imagination. They can be creative and visionary. They enjoy role-playing a lot. They can be adventurous sex partners. They may be open to experimenting and they enjoy kinks. They can be romantic, sensual, and gentle with a lover. They can try and do it all.

However, some of them may have an idealistic view of sex. They might believe sex is like what they see on TV or online or from what their friends tell them. They are impressionable. They may get so caught up in fantasies about their sexual experiences and adventures that the real thing ends up far more disappointing. In this case, sometimes their expectations are too high. They might go through partners, looking to make their dreams or fantasies come true only to find out that there’s nothing real about a fantasy. They should try to see people for who they really are. It would be best they avoid media and gossip that distorts their image of sex so that they can go into a sexual relationship with few expectations.

They are ruled by Jupiter and Neptune, so it would shed more light on this placement to look at those planets’ signs. Look for the Mars sign on this page that’s closest. For instance, if Jupiter and/or Neptune is in Scorpio, read Mars in Scorpio.

(Under Construction) What Does She Want YOU to See in HER? By the signs (Feminine Identity)

14 Mar
Venus sign

Venus-the planet of love and beauty

If you don’t understand much about zodiac signs and you are new to planetary signs, aspects, and houses, read the introduction here.

Venus is the planet of love, beauty, pleasure, justice, sex (aphrodisiacs and arousal), and peace. It is an air planet. It’s associated with the Greek goddess Aphrodite. Venus wants us to live a pleasant life of ease. She represents all we appreciate and adore. The sign she enters shows HOW we express our love, adoration, and appreciation. The house she enters shows WHERE we express this love, adoration, and appreciation. The aspects show us how difficult or easy it is to use her energies in our lives and how much of it we use as a result.

Ever heard of the saying, “Men are From Mars, Women are from Venus”?

Men-Mars-Women-Venus-Cover

In a woman’s chart, Venus is her ruler, while men are ruled by Mars. This is more socialized than anything. We have all the planets in our charts and are capable of using all of our energies.  But in our society, women tend to connect with Venus more than men do. Thus, the sign Venus is in tends to tell woman a lot about her own status as a “woman” and her identity in relation to her peers. Venus is a social planet, after all. Venus also reveals what women expect from relationships in general and her own sexuality, which is what I will be discussing in this article.

Why are women so associated with Venusian sexuality (and not men)? Mars has often been associated with sex as well. So why are women associated with Venus sexually? It has a lot to do with our society. More than men, women are often faced with situations that repress their sexual urges. Slut-shaming is very common. Women are also faced with other issues. I found a very interesting read on Psychology Today titled 5 Myths About Men’s Sexuality by Deborah Anapol. Even though the article mostly focuses on male sexuality, the author made some interesting points about women that relate to the idea that Venus is a woman’s sexual ruler. She discovered that “women are more socialized to channel their erotic yearnings into romantic fantasy”. Women are controlled and criticized when it comes to sexuality and their interest in a partner, especially one of the opposite sex. Because of “sex-negative conditioning and social judgments,” women are not able to explore their sexual potentials as widely or as easily as men. Until they are freed of these restrictions, subtlety will rule over directness. Love will rule over passion. Foreplay will be preferred over actual sexual intercourse.

The article 10 Things You Need to Know about Female Sexuality by Bella-Ellwood Clayton tells us that “[Women’s] desire to appear desirable exceeds desire itself…[Women] are too busy chasing beautiful to want to kiss beautifully.” Of course, she also recognizes that media and advertising does a lot to make women ashamed of their bodies and their “genitalia”. Therefore, women often focus more on “looking like they are having sex” rather than actually desiring to actually have it. They are so focused on being beautiful themselves that they feel uncomfortable seeing this beauty in their partners. This also relates to Venus having power over a woman’s sexuality rather than the sex planet Mars.

Venus has a real beautiful side to it, but she isn’t flawless. While Venus blesses women with charm, grace, beauty, and love, it curses them with a passive nature, vanity, and social conformity (stifling originality). Of course, there are some women who are exceptions to this rule.

Mars is another planet that rules sex, as I mentioned before, but it’s different for women than for men. Readers may remember my article regarding Women and Mars: What Does SHE see in YOU? By the signs

Venus and Mars are the two relationship planets in our charts. But for most women, Mars is projected onto men. She may often expect a man to live up to standards she herself doesn’t feel “allowed” to release. This will come in the form of the man she’s “attracted to”. From my experience, the stronger her Venus is, the more pressure she feels to conform. Therefore, women with Venus in her rulership signs (Taurus, Libra) or her exalted sign (Pisces) tend to project their Mars energy more in relationships and feel more uncomfortable expressing such “masculine” traits. Women with weaker Venus signs, such as Venus in detriment (Aries, Scorpio) or Venus in fall (Virgo), tend to be more comfortable with revealing sides to them that are deemed more “masculine”, though all women struggle with the need to conform. Aspects from Venus to Mars also make a woman more comfortable with her masculine energy.

Because women so often identify with Venus, any planets in your chart that are in Taurus or Libra will affect your feminine identity. If you have Sun in Taurus, for example, you may identify with the principles associated with the Sun.

So you may be wondering: If Mars rules the kind of man a woman is attracted to, why does Venus rule over what she expects out of love? This is the tricky question. It’s actually quite simple. Though women may be drawn to certain men because of their “masculine” energies, they often have certain codes for how even the “baddest” boy is supposed to treat a “lady”. In other words, even though women are attracted to the “bad, rough, and tough” Marsian energy, they still expect to be treated well by him, according to the “lady” she feels she is (which is ruled by her alter ego, Venus). So though she may naturally be drawn to a man’s approach (Mars sign), she may not feel he treats her well if he doesn’t respect or honor her the way she feels she deserves  (reflected by Venus).

Because women project Mars, often times this can create conflict with her Venus energy, especially if there are harsh aspects. A good example of this complicated love life would be singer-songwriter Taylor Swift’s love life (well, as she describes in her music). Taylor Swift has Venus in Aquarius and Mars in Scorpio. Having Mars in Scorpio, she’s naturally drawn to “Pluto and Mars” in a man, the edgy, bad boy types. It’s pretty evident when we listen to songs like “I Knew You Were Trouble” and “Style”. She describes a guy who “doesn’t care” and “she guessed she liked that”. In style, she describes the man as having a James Dean look in his eyes, long hair, slicked-back, white t-shirt…She seems to be drawn to men who sweep her in passionately, who give her a rush, men who have the ability to manipulate and control her psychologically. She likes this bad boy image.

So why would it hurt her for him to leave? Why would she be arguing with him? After all, you can’t expect a bad boy to be good, right? This is because of what she expects when she gets with him, which has a lot to do with the woman she is. It has something to do with her Venus in Aquarius. Unlike Scorpio, Aquarius is a mental air sign. Aquarius upholds humanitarian values, stays away from the depths and drama of messy emotions, abhors power and control, and tends to be social and friendly. When we hear the song, “You Belong With Me” or songs like “Style”, we see the woman SHE is: quirky, lovable, and a good girl. She likes her “tennis shoes” rather than “high heels”. Instead of being “cheer captain”, she’s on the bleachers. This good-girl-geek seems in total contrast to the bad boys she seems to be drawn to. She likes the bad boys, but expects to be treated like a “good girl” BY this bad boy.

What she may not know is the “bad boy” is her projection. It’s only how she PERCEIVES him. Honestly, we all can only “perceive” how others are. We can never know what’s truly going on inside a person. We aren’t them. And no matter how we see a person, they each have their own natal charts that may reveal things we may not totally expect from a person. She may see him as a “bad boy”, and his chart may reveal he’s nothing but a softy! So in all honesty, inside, SHE’S the one who’s drawn to the dark side! It’s her internal bad girl that is constantly drawn to the bad boy! She’s the one who desires to live life on the edge. But she has projected this energy onto the men in her life. That’s how Venus and Mars work in many womans’ chart.

There are other planets in signs that affect our relationships (as well as houses), but Venus is directly associated with our attraction to others, our love for things, and what we desire. Mars works with Venus, but Venus is especially important when it comes to women understanding their gender identity.

Moon is another planet that reveals a woman’s “feminine identity”. But Venus is the beauty and charm in women, Moon is the wife and mother in women. Venus is the girl, Moon is the woman. Venus is our identity when we’re among our peers and potential lovers. Moon is our mother’s identity or our identity as a “parent” or “wife” or long-term girlfriend. This is how we represent our family and how we see ourselves among our family and close friends. Mother’s influence often follows us wherever we go, so we carry her presence with us in public, too. We just don’t often realize it (or if our relationship with her is shaky, we don’t want to).

In a lesbian’s chart, she tends to balance both her masculine and feminine energies well in a relationship, considering she may not feel the need to be the submissive or assertive one in her relationship. It may vary according to her partner. Still, even lesbian women may feel the pressure to conform like all the other women. She may not project her Mars on a man she’s interested in, but she may end up projecting her Mars on men in general. She may even look for a female partner who has more masculine qualities if she really is out of touch with Mars.

In a man’s chart, Venus tends to reflect the qualities he would rather “project” and reveals his idea of the “ideal” woman.

Feminine Identity: Venus first enters Mars’s domain, Aries, the sign of her detriment. Aries is a fire sign and cardinal. Venus and Mars are two of the relationship planets, but they are polar opposites. Mars has always been the planet associated with masculinity. Venus is the feminine principle. Mars is the planet of war; Venus is the planet of peace. Mars is active; Venus is passive. While being in the sign of Aries can be a little scary for her, it’s always exciting! Thus, when Venus is in Aries, these women don’t often mind doing things that are considered…well, unladylike! For them, men are not the only ones from Mars!

Some Venus in Aries women want to be seen as fun and sexy individuals. They want their love interest to feel an irresistible pull towards them. They want to stand out as the hottest female in every group. They might wear bold and bright colors to stand out. Red may be preferred. Their other preference might be the edgy color black. They might make sure they have their hair done or their faces made up so their love interest can see how pretty they look from first glance. They might show some skin so their love interest notices their assets right away. Most importantly, they wear confidence. They generally try to be the first one on the dance floor, just so their love interest notices them. They might also dance in a sexy way so their love interest wants them.

Other Venus in Aries women may want their love interests to see them as brave, confident, and independent. They might play hard to get or present some sort of challenge for a suitor. They might be daring flirts or they tease their love interests. They might show off their accomplishments. Some of them might take on challenges or dares to impress their love interests. They should be careful not to do something too reckless just to impress someone.

They might want their love interests to see them as passionate. They want their love interests to see that they will do anything for them, anything to win their affections. They will do whatever you ask if they really want you.

They attract people to them by taking initiative. They don’t really “attract” people so much as they “approach”. They really come on to a person they want. When they try to attract someone to them, they do it obviously. They aren’t false charmers. Most people know exactly who and what they want. They don’t play games. If you don’t know that they want you, you are pretending you don’t know. They make sure they are visible around their love interest. They often can’t contain their excitement. When they  like someone, they wear a smile around that person all the time. As a sign that rules the head and face, their love is written on their face. Plain as day.

They come on so strong because they want to make their love interests feel wanted and desired. They hope this will win their love interest over.

These women are not too shy to ask someone out. Most women expect the man to do it. These women don’t have time for those outdated rules! They know who they want and they go for it!

The Venus in Aries woman’s weakness is selfishness. They often expect to be catered to, to be given all the time and attention, and to be doted upon or considered in every occasion, especially in a committed relationship or if they were asked out (rather than asked someone out, as they tend to do). They get impatient with people who don’t do what they want them to do. But they have a hard time meeting others’ expectations or accommodating to other people. They expect to just be accepted for who they are in every way and they don’t often believe it’s their role to have to do anything for someone else (unless they get something out of it). Some of them may be too demanding or aggressive for some people.

Despite the fact that many Venus in Aries women would rather approach a love interest, some of them may expect their love interest to notice them and take initiative. They may get impatient when the person doesn’t notice them quick enough! This could cause them to be frustrated and they may take it out on the person. They are famous for their temper. It would be better for them to just let their real feelings out.

Unfortunately, they can’t handle rejection. It might stab their ego for awhile. They often go through this because, unlike other women, they actually go after who they want instead of waiting until the guy notices them. But when you do the approaching, you have to face the rejections. Venus in Aries may face this dilemma all the time. They may avoid approaching to avoid rejection, but may be too impatient to wait for a response to their love. It complicates things for them.

They can be a bit aggressive and unrefined. They aren’t always ladylike. They aren’t into tradition. Even if they have some ladylike traits, they are free-spirited by nature. They may be accused of wearing the pants in their relationships.

They’re also rather bored easily. Most of them may expect their love interest to spice things up or keep it exciting. Others might openly flirt with other people. Some of them may grow tired of a settled relationship and may find themselves crushing on someone new.

In order to feel loved and happy, they need someone in their lives who keeps the romance going. They need someone who’s just as enthusiastic about the relationship as they are. They would expect their lovers to keep them on their toes constantly. Try new things, be bold, create a challenge for them, and they’re all yours.

But they don’t need their lovers clinging on to them. They need their independence. They need to be able to do their own thing sometimes. They often need the absence so they can desire their love interest or so their love can grow fonder. They need a partner that accepts that part of themselves. Their partner needs to have their own thing, too. They don’t like being controlled or monitored.

However, when you two do get back together, they want the relationship to be just as exciting and romantic as it was when you first met.

Sexually, these women often want the experience to be fun, passionate, and a little rough. They want to try new things, but they often don’t want to waste too much time getting into the act. They like it wild. They can do the act anywhere, but may get really excited if they’re in a dangerous location.

They may enjoy their heads carrassed. They may also like their hair pulled or tugged at. They love to kiss during the act.

Aries is ruled by Mars, the planet of war, action, sex. These ladies’ Mars sign will shed more light. Look at their Mars sign and then find the Venus sign on this page that’s closest. For example, if the lady has Mars in Taurus, read Venus in Taurus.

Venus in Taurus

Feminine Identity: Venus enters one of her homes when she comes into the second sign of Taurus, a fixed earth sign. Here, it may not be as exciting as her last domain, but she sure feels safe and comfortable here. Any partner who gets with a Venus in Taurus woman would feel the same. These women may or may not have tomboyish streaks, but they still hold themselves to traditional feminine values. They can be fighters when pushed, but they would rather not reveal this side. They prefer peace to chaos. These women are always moderate in their tendencies. Thus, most women admire them. While they are strong, hard-working, and practical, they don’t always feel like they have to be one of the guys to earn respect. They know how to get attention without stealing someone else’s shine.

Venus in Taurus women want to be seen by their love interests as beautiful and valuable. They want to be pleasing to the senses in all aspects. They want their love interests to see them as worth more than all the riches in the world. Thus, they hold themselves with a lot of dignity when in the presence of their love interest. They always show they have a lot to offer a lover, whether its with their money, cooking skills, or calm temperament. They might wear jeweled colors, like ruby red and emerald green, to show their value.

They may want their love interests to see them as feminine and traditional, especially amidst a changing world. They might have some traditionally feminine traits that they feel would be valuable to many men. They might go for soft and feminine colors, pastels like pink, to show their feminine and soft side.

Don’t get it twisted though. They are practical and perfectly capable of taking care of themselves. They are money-savvy. But they would like their partner to add to the pot.

They may also want their love interests to see them as sensible and practical. They tend to be rather down-to-earth. They may go for earth-tone colors to show how practical and humble they are.

They tend to embellish all of their looks with jewelry, especially necklaces. Or they might show off their necks and collar bone area by keeping it bare. They tend to have a classic appeal when trying to impress someone they like. They don’t go overboard, and may only show a little skin. They may accentuate their bodies though. They may possibly show off their curves. But they try not to appear desperate.

These women want their love interests to see them in a calm state. They may be embarrassed if their love interest were to see them lose their cool or get angry.

They also want to look, smell, and sound their best when a love interest is around. They may not like their love interest visiting them when they’re sick.

They want their love interests to feel comfortable around them at all times.

Venus in Taurus women attract a potential love interest to them by being graceful and feminine. They try to tickle their love interest’s senses.

They tend to make physical offerings. They give massages, cook for you, buy or make little gifts, and spend a lot of time with someone they’re interested in. They’re known for their subtle flirting style. They give hugs and pecks on the cheek (the lips come after commitment). Taurus being ruled by the throat, they always make sure they watch their tone of voice around someone they’re interested in. They don’t want to scare anyone away. They might even sing to their love interests if they have a good singing voice.

They are always patient when they really like someone. They will wait forever for their love interest to come around. They may even be long-suffering when dealing with a potential love interest.

The Venus in Taurus woman’s weakness is her superficiality when dealing with people. She’s more drawn to people who do things physically for her. It’s not that she’s all about the money and good looks, but they are assets. She at least wants someone charming. She doesn’t really get too deep and meaningful when it comes to love. She’s relatively simple and may be confused by any sort of loving that happens beyond the physical and material realm.

She can also be difficult to please. If she’s not interested in anyone in particular, she will make potential suitors work for her love and she takes a long time choosing the right one. She will enjoy a couple of dinner dates before she decides. This might cost suitors a lot of money. She may not make a decision for many years! Most suitors might move on by the time she decides. She really needs to spend a lot of time with a person before deciding to date them for real. She’s also not likely to sleep around on the first date unless the person is really attractive and convincing. Some people might consider this a strength. More impatient suitors might consider this a weakness.

She’s also not the most experimental or adventurous person in the world. If it makes her uncomfortable, she will refuse to do it. She tends to stick to what she’s used to and can do the same thing every day. This doesn’t just apply to what she wants to do in public but also in the bedroom. If she’s never tried something or she’s tried something that failed her before, she will be hesitant to try it at all. In public, she prefers simple and traditional dates like dinner and a movie or just a walk and picnic in the park. Or maybe even just sitting at home or in a hotel doing nothing. Nothing too wild and dangerous (unless it’s pleasurable). She likes for love interests to make her feel safe and secure. If you do want her to try something wild, you need to make her feel at ease with it. She has to trust you. She has to feel relaxed. She won’t mind a nice motorcycle ride or trying a smoke, but don’t try any “fast and furious” type of garbage or drugging her drink. Show that you have some sense.

This woman is rather traditional. Even when she likes someone, she doesn’t like to be the one asking someone else out. She would rather her love interest notice her and ask her out. She tends to be cautious with love and definitely doesn’t want to face rejection. She would rather the other person take the chance. Some potential suitors might like that she’s willing to let them take initiative, but others might be confused as to what she really wants because she isn’t open. They might pick up the wrong signs. It’s not that she plays games, because she’s genuine and honest, she’s just subtle in her approach.

She’s traditional in another way: She prefers her partner to be the one paying all of the bills. If she has to reach in her pocket for any reason, that’s a turn off.

Last, these women can be possessive. They get jealous rather easily. They won’t like their love interests around other women. They might even get upset if they even THINK their love interest is around someone else. They like to be the only woman in their love interest’s lives. They don’t usually lose their cool in front of a love interest, but if you really want to excite the bull, surround yourself around female friends.

But they are not against stepping out of the relationship if they don’t feel their partner is pleasing them enough or giving them enough attention. The worst part is they may string a lover along while cheating because they don’t want to lose their security or start any drama.

Yet, you don’t want to please them too much. They tend to get comfortable. They get so comfortable they forget to give as much as they’re given. When they get used to something, they won’t know how to change their ways.

In order to feel happy and loved, Venus in Taurus women want to be treated like a valuable item. They want someone to care for them, be patient with them, and to protect them. They want a partner that makes them feel good and satisfies their desires. They want someone who is willing to spend money and time. They want someone to make them feel secure and special. They expect their lovers to be loyal. Fidelity is very important to them. They prefer a partner who has had few relationships to one that has had many. Though they love a skilled sex partner, they would prefer a man who has never had sex to a man who has slept with too many. They can’t stand a player.

Sexually, these women enjoy the sensual aspects of it all. They want to experience every touch, taste, sound, sight, and smell that could enhance their feeling of pleasure. While they are generally basic and simple, not caring to jump into experimenting and such, they focus on ultimate pleasure. They take their time and enjoy foreplay. They prefer a comfortable environment to a rough one. If you really want to spice things up, foreplay dealing with a nice bath or playing around with food might be nice.

They like their neck and collar bone stroked or kissed.

Taurus is ruled by Venus. Venus is her home, so she blesses them with a lot of charm, beauty, and grace. They just have to be careful not to get vain and spoiled.

Venus in Gemini

Gemini

Feminine Identity: Venus enters Gemini third, the sign ruled by Mercury. Here, it’s not too far away from who she is, but some things are different. I wouldn’t say she feels completely comfortable here, but there are some things that are familiar. Gemini is an air and mutable sign. Thus, these women are adaptable and changeable. They are social and love to have fun. Though many of them tend to see themselves a “girly girls”, you never know what you get with a Gemini! While these girls may love makeup and dresses, they may also be a basketball player who loves to talk about space travel! Venus in Gemini women are usually curious and can get interested in anything. They’ve tried everything. These women mostly love to socialize and talk. They also love admiration and attention. They can be superficial, only paying attention to what’s happening outside and around them rather than tending to anything underneath. Thus, they care more about the way they look than they do about how they feel. Sometimes, they are too concerned with others, which can make them gossipy. It can also make them self-conscious because they can be too concerned with their friends’ opinions of them.

Venus in Gemini women want to be seen as fun, young, attractive, charming, and intelligent individuals by their love interests.

They usually wear bright and cheerful colors to give them a youthful and lively appearance. They might tease love interests by showing a little skin here and there. They tend to often show off their shoulders and arms mostly. They make sure their hands look well-manicured. They also pay attention to their lips. They try to appear kissable.

They are generally open to trying all new looks, and may pick a style depending on who they are going out with and depending on the occasion. They should be careful not to change their appearance to impress a love interest. Mostly, though, they tend to dress in the latest trends, which gives them a young vibe no matter how old they are. To most people, they always look young, which helps them find love timelessly.

They want love interests to know that they are open-minded and willing to try new things.

They want to appear witty and funny. They love to make their love interests laugh. They love to tease their love interests, too.

They may want love interests to see them as busy socialites with places to go and plenty of suitors waiting. In their own way, they feel this will convince slow suitors to pick up their feet. Really, plenty of suitors are usually waiting for these dynamic women. If you don’t scoop them up when you can, you will miss the boat.

Venus in Gemini women attract love interests to them by being talkative and flirty. They have an airy charm. They aren’t necessarily stupid though, even if they act ditzy. They generally have a smooth and adaptable way of talking to people, and this draws all kinds of lovers their way. They can change up their whole approach to attract the one they want to them. They also know how to work that body language. They tend to be good with languages of all kinds really.

These women try to stay open to things. They attract people to them by trying new things with their love interests.

They might try to show interest in the person. They typically try to get inside a person’s mind and see how they think. They are naturally curious.

Venus in Gemini women’s weakness is being scattered. They are so scattered all over the place, they have a difficult time giving the attention and time to their love interests. They are relatively independent and don’t really need a partner around them all the time. They tend to have so much going on at once, they are hard to pin down. It’s hard for them to be a domestic homebody.

They keep their options open, too. Some potential suitors may get frustrated with this. They tend to go on dates with two different guys at the same time until they decide which one they want. Everyone might not be okay with this. They don’t mean to play with people’s hearts, but sometimes they come across that way.

They’re also friendly with everyone. They tend to have a lot of people surrounding them from both sexes. This might make some people insecure. And they’re not going to let go of their friends just because it makes some suitor uncomfortable (especially if they haven’t decided if they really like the person yet).

They can be rather shallow. They tend to only care about things superficially and may not offer any depth. They might not be interested in anything too deep, intimate, personal, and meaningful either. They just want to laugh and have a good time. They don’t like when people act coy, “woke”, or dull.

They can be two-faced, too. They may let their friends influence them too much. They might be turned off from a suitor just because their friends don’t like them. Or they might only be interested in a suitor just because all of their friends are interested.

They might pretend to be someone they aren’t just get with a love interest. Some of them might be a little fake.

They generally talk a lot, too. If you want to keep some aspects of your relationship private, it’s nearly impossible with this woman. She slips up all the time.

In order to keep the Venus in Gemini happy and feeling loved, you have to keep things interesting. She doesn’t want to be bored.

Not only do you have to mentally engage and entertain her, you have to communicate. She needs to be able to talk to her love interests at all times, no matter where you are or who you’re with. She needs to hear that she’s loved. Constantly make her feel attractive by complimenting her when she changes her looks up. Pay attention when she speaks and at least show some interest in what she’s saying.

You need to do some fun things with her. Invite her places. Show her off to all of your friends.

If you don’t cheat and lie, she won’t either. But if she catches you, best believe she will find someone much easier than you did.

Sexually, these women want to have a good time. They want someone who makes the experience fun for them. They are open to trying new things as long as it’s not too weird (and even if it is, just don’t film it).

They find pleasure with words. Pillow talk might be a favorite. They might also enjoy some tempting text messages or little romantic notes. Be clever and creative if you want them knocking down your door.

They need someone that can get them out of their heads and into their bodies. They might be so focused on talking and may not actually get down to the act. They might be thinking so much about what they want to do, they may not actually do it. A nice massage might be just the thing to release that nervous energy and tension.

These women like their shoulders and arms touched or kissed. They may like being kissed in general. They might enjoy holding hands during the act as well. They might like their hands kissed. They may enjoy playful touching. They enjoy anything oral.

Gemini is ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication and movement. Look for their Mercury sign and then find the Venus sign closest on this page. For instance, if their Mercury is in Cancer, read Venus in Cancer.

Venus in Cancer

Cancer

Feminine Identity: Venus enters the sign of Cancer, the area belonging to the greater feminine luminary, the Moon. Cancer is a cardinal sign and a water sign. There are some things Venus is comfortable with while being in Cancer, and some things she’s not. Like the Moon, Venus is a planet that represents femininity. But unlike the Moon, Venus is far more social and superficial. She’s more about pleasure, romantic love, and beauty. The Moon focuses on the emotions and commitment, which can be the good, bad, or ugly. Moon reflects overall womanhood and motherhood. Venus would rather think about life in love…rather than the responsibilities of a family and emotional commitments. She’s the young, beautiful, untouched woman. Still, at least here she can find lasting partnerships and romance.

Venus in Cancer women want to be seen as sweet, feminine, and maternal by their love interests. They might wear sweet and feminine colors like pastels or white. They might enjoy some glitter or silver, too. But if they want to get a little dangerous, they go for eye-popping red. To show that they are capable of being nurturing mothers, they might accentuate their chest a little.

Usually, they aren’t gaudy or too provocative. They want to appear like good wives. They often think about how their attire will influence their future children, too. They want to be good role models.

They don’t really care about the design of their clothes. Most of them might be fine with just a simple top and jeans. They may like loose-fitting dresses. Still, they are artistic, so they may be drawn to certain colors and designs.

However they look on the outside, it’s underneath that they care about. When going out with a love interest, they make sure to choose the finest underwear and sleep attire. Lingerie makes them feel sexy.

Venus in Cancer women attract love interests to them by being a caring, understanding, and thoughtful person in their love interest’s life. They are the ones who are there whenever they’re asked to be, buy thoughtful gifts, and lend a shoulder to cry on. They always try to be understanding.

They try to remember birthdays, the names of their love interest’s family members, and other important information about that person.

They also try to appear like good wives and mothers. They might cook and clean for a love interest. They might show interest in babies or children. They might care for animals. They will always think about their love interest’s family. They usually get close with their love interest’s mother. They work hard to win the family’s approval.

They might also want potential love interests to see how practical and smart they are. These women are capable of providing for their families because they are business-savvy, know how to nurture a business, and know where to find money. They are creative as well. They may want to be admired for these qualities.

One of Venus in Cancer women’s weakness is that they expect others to intuit their feelings. It’s hard for them to just go after whatever it is they want, so they tend to leave indirect clues that they expect love interests to pick up on. If their love interest doesn’t get the hint, they get upset. They might expect others to be as intuitive as they are.

Venus in Cancer women are also rather shy. This can be an endearing quality in some ways, but it can be a limiting quality in other ways. Because they shy away from certain things, they aren’t the most experimental and adventurous lovers. They stick with what’s familiar to them when it comes to love.

These women can be unrealistic and impressionable when it comes to what they expect out of love. They might be extremely romantic or they may be influenced by movies and romance novels to be this way. They might expect partners to wait beneath their balcony windows and whisk them away on midnight excursions. They might be disappointed by lovers who lack imagination.

Venus in Cancer women can be sensitive and moody. They might get their feelings hurt rather easily, and they aren’t against being manipulative to get back at someone.

In order to feel loved and happy, Venus in Cancers need to be pampered and cared for. They need someone to treat them gently and sensitively. They need to feel understood. They also love some imagination and romance from time to time. They need a thoughtful lover that thinks about what they want without having to be told to.

Sexually, these women are all about intimacy and feeling a sense of closeness. Sex feels pleasurable for them when they are in love with their partner. Romantic foreplay would make the experience more memorable. They may not be avante-garde, but they may be open to trying new things if they really love a partner enough. Their feelings influence them.

They may enjoy their chest being played with or kissed. They might like being touched or held by their lower stomach. They mostly like to face their lover so they can feel a connection in that person’s eyes.

Cancer is ruled by the Moon. The Moon is the planet of emotions, the past, and nurturing femininity. Find out what her Moon sign is. Then find the Venus sign that’s closest on this page. For example, if she’s Moon in Leo, read Venus in Leo.

Venus in Leo

Leo

Feminine Identity: Venus enters the sign ruled by the Sun, Leo. Here, she meets fixed fire. Sun is naturally falling in one of Venus’s signs, Libra, so there are going to be some things Venus isn’t comfortable with in Leo. Still, there are things that Venus can handle here. For one, Leo is highly romantic. Venus is the planet of love. In Leo, Venus is able to enjoy love to the fullest. Our Venus in Leo ladies are very good at honoring Venus in their own special way.

Venus in Leo women want to be seen as faithful, generous, sweet, creative, popular, and attractive but also confident and independent.

If Venus in Leo women could have their way, they’d want their love interests to see them as any and everything any man would want! Venus in Leo women are all about putting their best out there. They want their love interest to see nothing but the best in them. They want their love interest to see their strengths.

Generally, when these women are around their love interests, they try not to show their sadness or anger. They want their love interests to see them smiling and having fun at all times.

They want to appear confident and independent. They don’t want to appear clingy. They want to show a love interest that they have a lot to offer. They want to show their accomplishments and what they could share with a love interest if they were to merge. They want to be considered “rare” and valuable.

They try to attract their love interest to them by looking their best when they’re around them, by wearing confidence, by flirting, and by giving everything they’ve got.

They are very generous. They give of time, resources, energy, and effort when they like someone. They want their love interest to feel special. They can get really creative when it comes to trying to impress their love interest. They want to be unforgettable. They want their love interest to feel like royalty.

They generally like to make their love interest laugh. They try to be a ray of sunshine in their love interest’s life.

Venus in Leo’s weakness is that they have very high standards for love. They treat their lovers like royalty, but they also expect to be treated like queens. They usually want their way in a relationship. They want the relationship to go the way they want it to. They expect their partners to be romantic, chivalrous, sexy, attractive, confident, and accomplished-just as they feel they are. You have to get on their level in life.

They’re also popular and they know it! They can get any suitor they want to. Though they generally are faithful, they aren’t against flirting a little and dancing a little with someone else if they feel their partner isn’t giving them enough attention.

And they require a lot of attention. If they get a flat tire, you’d better be there to pick them up. If they are having a bad day, you’d better listen. If they’re bored, you’d better entertain them. They aren’t giving anything up for anyone who isn’t willing to jump and leap for them.

They get jealous rather easily as well. Don’t you dare even acknowledge that another woman is attractive. Though they love to be flattered and may innocently flirt with others, they can’t handle it when their partners do the same thing.

They can be a little bossy and dominant. They are often more sure of themselves than some of their love interests, so they end up doing all the planning and telling their lovers what to do.

In order to feel loved and happy, these women have to feel like queens. They need their partners acting as both kings and servants. They need someone to take care of them, someone who is always there for them, someone who is always into them. They need attention and affection. Their partner should always notice when they style themselves up or when they need help. They need a partner that is creative and romantic.

Though they want a servant, they also need a king. They need a partner that is proud of them and stands by them. They need a partner that takes the lead in most affairs and takes the reins from this women every once in a while. They want a partner that is confident and content.

Sexually, these women want to feel wanted. They want their partners to work to please them. They also want to have fun. They can be adventurous and a bit of an exhibitionist. Sex is usually a love-making experience for them. They would want all of their sex partners to be in love with them. They won’t tolerate their partner having too many other sex partners.

They might enjoy their backs being caressed and their chests being played with or kissed.

Leo is ruled by the Sun. Look at the Sun sign then find the Venus sign that’s closest on this page. For example, if her Sun is in Virgo, read Venus in Virgo.

Venus in Virgo

virgo

Feminine Identity: Venus enters Mercury’s other sign here, only this time it’s the mutable earthy Virgo. Here, Venus is in a difficult falling position. Mercury and Venus aren’t really opposite planets, but the natural nature of this earth sign makes it difficult for Venus to really blossom the way she would like. This doesn’t mean the women with this position aren’t feminine. Quite the contrary! Some of these women are quite prim, demure, and docile. They have very soft qualities at times. The real issue Venus has in this position has to deal with Virgo’s modesty. Really, Venus and Virgo have some things in common, considering she has triplicity in Virgo. They are both subtle and easy-going (Venus being a planet of pleasure and Virgo being a physical earth sign). They both believe in being fair and have a strong sense of righteousness. But the vanity of Venus is humbled in this sign. Venus is usually a pleasure-seeking, easy-going, mostly lazy goddess. She cares about material comforts as well as her appearance. She is also quite involved with love. Virgo is the sign of hard work. Virgo is practical and rejects idealistic romance. Virgo makes the person less interested in superficial looks and charms and prefers the real girl. This means that the women with this position may look fabulous, but they work hard to get there.

Some Venus in Virgo women want to be pleasing in the eyes of their love interest, no matter what that means. They want to be helpful, useful, attractive, self-sacrificing, sweet, modest, sexy-whatever will please their love interest. They work really hard to be the kind of girl their love interest can fall in love with.

Other Venus in Virgo women generally want to be seen as down-to-earth and smart. They don’t want their partners to have super high expectations of them. They would rather be their natural selves.

Many Venus in Virgo women swing between desires.

Some of them tend to want to look perfect when around someone they like. They attend to every aspect of their appearance until they can attract the right love interests to them.

They tend to choose form-flattering attire. They use natural but enhancing makeup. They don’t usually go for gaudy or colorful clothing, even if it is a bit revealing. They want most people to consider them stylish. They prefer professional and muted colors.

Other Venus in Virgo women try to be as natural and down-to-earth as possible in their appearance. They try not to put on airs. They just try to look decent and tend to their hygiene. They might want their natural beauty to shine through.

They don’t directly try to attract potential suitors to them. They are often too shy to openly flirt and they are apprehensive about love. They are modest and quiet about their feelings.

However, when they really are interested in a person, they will do anything for that person. You will notice their affections in the little things they do. They won’t outright tell you they like you. You have to pay attention.

They are the type of people to help their love interest with small errands and household tasks. They are really helpful and useful. They will be there to give advice, too.

They tease the people they like a lot, too. They tend to have a playfulness about them that’s endearing.

One of Venus in Virgo women’s weakness could be that they are perfectionists. They are often very hard on themselves. Some of them have all sorts of insecurities, especially when it comes to their appearance. Many women with this placement get plastic surgery, go on diets, and try to fix themselves up in other ways to get that “perfect” look. They know logically what the beauty standards are. Many of them don’t believe in the “everyone is beautiful in their own way” philosophy. Really, all of their imperfections are what make them perfect. But it’s hard to convince them of this.

The ones that do believe everyone is beautiful in their own way had to work through many insecure moments in their lives to get to that point. This side of Venus in Virgo usually comes out much later in their lives.

They also expect perfection from suitors. They can be picky. The littlest thing can turn them off. If you really want them, you have to fix yourself to their liking. They won’t let just any person in their lives.

Venus in Virgo women are also not the most romantic individuals in the world. They are not the most imaginative. They might find some gestures to be corny or cheesy. They aren’t easily impressed by the flash or sappy gestures. They prefer someone to be real and down-to-earth in their approach.

In order to feel happy and loved, Venus in Virgo women need someone in their lives that accepts them, flaws and all. They need someone that can stick with them through everything. They want someone that appreciates them and acknowledges their efforts. They want someone who makes an effort to show their devotion as well. You don’t have to do it in fancy ways. It’s the little things that count. Just pick them up from work, offer to help them fix something, or spend some relaxing time with them. If they are having a bad day, be there to comfort them or provide a listening ear. Make life easier for them so they won’t have more stresses and worries. Help them pay some bills.

Sexually, Venus in Virgo women tend to be service-oriented. They perfect their craft until it becomes an art. They want their partners pleased and satisfied in all sexual areas. At the same time, they want a partner that is just as skilled to please them, too, even if they don’t always ask for what they want. Though they aren’t going to initiate any kinks, some of them can be kinky at times.

Their issue is they have a hard time seeing the big picture. They may get so focused on pleasing a partner, they forget to enjoy it or connect with their partner. They might also have a hard time getting out of their worries and stresses so they can be there mentally for sex. A good massage can cure this. Their partner would have to take some initiative.

They might enjoy being touched in general while doing the act, but holding their waist might arouse them more.

Virgo is ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication and movement. Look at Mercury’s sign then find the Venus sign on this page that is closest. For instance, if Mercury is in Libra, read Venus in Libra.

Venus in Libra

Libra

Feminine Identity: Venus enters her second home when she comes in contact with Libra, the air and cardinal sign. This means these women have a strong feminine identity, one that most women can’t help but admire and relate to. Libra is the sign of relationships. It’s easy for people to relate to them and therefore easy for them to form relationships with people. They are very charming. This is because they are polite, well-mannered, and considerate.

Venus in Libra women tend to want their love interests to see them as cool, sweet, intelligent, cultured, attractive, and charming-beautiful on the inside and out, mind, body, and spirit.

They want their love interests to see them as equal to them.

Venus in Libra women attract love interests to them with their natural charms. Their ruler, Venus, gives them a natural sweet and cool temperament. Most people feel at ease in their presence. They generally try to be pleasant, polite, and open-minded when dealing with others, which makes them endearing. They use this charm to attract their love interest.

They try not to get impatient or frustrated with others, but they especially do not like to lose their temper in front of their crush. They want their love interest to mostly see them in a collected state.

They usually hate being alone, so they try to make friends with people. They are good at finding what they have in common with others. This makes them pretty popular and makes them gain others’ love quite easily. They especially try to find common ground with their love interest.

They are flirty, but they aren’t vulgar with it. They will acknowledge when someone looks good or when they like the way someone smells, but they will try not to be rude or step over any boundaries. Many people appreciate this about them.

They go out of their way to show their love for the person they’re interested in. They aren’t forceful, but they do tend to lavish affection, gifts, and other tokens of their love.

They try to fall in step with their love interest. They will attend events where their love interest is present.

The Venus in Libra woman’s weakness is that they are flirty with everyone. Sometimes, it’s hard to know who they are really interested in. They treat everyone equally. They act too cool to act desperate, but some people are left wondering about their feelings.

Venus in Libra women are also indecisive. Even when they have someone they like, they are always wondering whether they’re making the right choice. And if they have two really good suitors, they might date them both just to see if they can find the right one! They also don’t like to hurt people’s feelings, so they might give others’ a chance even if they know who they like.

Some of them want to be in a relationship so bad or they fear being alone so much, they settle with the first person that asks them out. They may not be sure if they like the person, but they just like to attention they’re getting from this person.

They might let their relationship define them. They might lose their own identity when with their partner. Sometimes, they end up sharing too much with their partner. If the relationship doesn’t work out, they end up losing half of the things they worked hard for. They often have a difficult time separating themselves from their partner in many ways. They should find some things they can keep for themselves and learn that it’s okay to do so.

Some Venus in Libra lack confidence. They may not feel they have what it takes to fight for the one they love. But the opposite is true! They have so much going for themselves! They just need to believe in themselves.

Venus in Libra women should avoid being superficial and judgmental. Though they’re generally pleasant around most people, deep within they tend to judge people based on their lifestyle, appearance, behavior, or mannerisms. If they let go of some of these judgments, they might be able to pick the right person for them.

In order for these women to feel happy and loved, they need to be treated as an equal. If they do something for someone, they need it returned. They don’t like double standards.

They want to feel wanted, loved, and cared for. They want someone to romance them. They want someone that buys them luxuries, takes them on dates, and tells them they are loved.

They want a partner they can do anything with. Do couple things with them. Make them feel special. Own them and acknowledge them in public.

Sexually, they just like the art of love-making and being with a partner. They love a little foreplay and romance before the act. They generally want to be pleased and they’re willing to please their partner. They may not be avant-garde in their approach, but they still have an adventurous and playful side. They can enjoy any sexual style as long as it’s not too painful or disgusting. They don’t like to get too dirty.

They might like to be held by their waist or they may enjoy their buttocks squeezed, held, or carressed during the act.

Libra is ruled by Venus. Venus gives them all the charm and beauty they need.

Venus in Scorpio

Scorpio

Feminine Identity: Venus enters another uncomfortable position when she enters the sign ruled by Mars and Pluto. That sign is Scorpio. Scorpio is a fixed water sign. In the watery depths of Scorpio, Venus feels like she’s suffocating. Though Scorpio is subtle on the outside, Venus can’t help but feel there is something not-so-subtle going on underneath. Underneath the quiet Scorpio is a whole lot of passion and desire. Venus is not comfortable with such an extreme energy. She does everything in moderation. Scorpio, on the other hand, is an all or nothing sign. And when it comes to their own feminine identity, they are no different. They can be powerfully feminine or reject femininity altogether. If they are women who are powerfully feminine, they are all about female empowerment. These women may feel more content being single than being with a male partner. Some of them may be more interested in dating women. These women are fiercely independent, but they still enjoy all the things that make up a girl. In fact, they may feel that more people should honor femininity. These women may put a lot of emphasis on their own individual charms and beauty. They may reject the idea of women having to live up to “masculine standards” and may feel that men should do more to be like women. The ones that reject traditional femininity are out to prove they can just as powerful and strong as the boys.

Venus in Scorpio women want to be seen by their love interests as powerful, self-reliant, magnetic, sexy, wise, and intuitive individuals.

They both want to attract the right suitor towards them and scare away those that aren’t any good or can’t handle them.

While they want suitors to be attracted to them, they want suitors to like them for their strength, natural beauty, and brains. They aren’t superficial ladies. There’s always more than meets the eye, and they want suitors to know that.

While, they want suitors to be mesmerized by them, they want suitors to know they don’t need a lover to complete them. They are capable of taking care of themselves, just as a warning. Even if they know the love interest they want, they won’t let that person subdue them or stop them from getting all they want out of life.

Though they can be wrapped around a love interest’s fingers in many ways, they try not to let a love interest control them in every way. They don’t like feeling like they have to change everything they are for a love interest. They aren’t the types to want to appear desperate for a love interest, either. They know where it leads. So, they tend to tease and play hard to get sometimes.

And yet, deep down, these women are willing to change everything about themselves to gain their love interest’s affections. It’s because these women are the types to be willing to do anything for a love interest that they put up their defenses. They just don’t want their love interest to know that and use it to their advantage. It takes the right love interest to ignite their passion and desire to be and do anything for love.

Everyone wants to be attractive and loved. In order to give just enough sexiness and yet keep some power to themselves, these ladies tend to be drawn to clothing in black or dark red and maroons. They go through many style transformations. At one point in their lives, they might go for more form-fitting attire, only to add sharp accessories that instill some fear. They might wear loose-fitting clothing so they can leave something for the imagination. They might wear a little sheer just to tease a love interest. They might get their nails done and wear perfume, too. They can be gaudy and provocative at times, and then flip the script and be conservative. They tend to be like a spy, switching identities constantly.

Venus in Scorpio women attract love interests to them in very subtle ways. They aren’t open flirts. They aren’t overt at all. While everyone is asking a partner to dance or sitting down and flirting, Venus in Scorpio women are hanging back in the corner, watching and observing. They are lone wolves. Some might already be on the floor by themselves, eyeing the one they want and silently asking their love interest to come and get them.

They can be a little shy of too much attention, so they might not make themselves noticeable to their love interest. But if that person is observant enough, they can catch their seduction through their eyes. The eyes are the window to their emotions. That’s where they hide their deep well. Through their eyes, you can see their real feelings.

Venus in Scorpio women are the queens of staring. They know how to mesmerize love interests with a look. They tell a story and send signals with their eyes. They might even add a little magnetic smile there.

Their mysterious aura can be attractive to those who take the time to notice. They’re like a magician casting a person under their spell. And the fact that they are hard to catch is even more appealing.

They also tend to do a lot of research about the one they are interested in just so they can know what their love interests like and want. They observe, too. As a result, they know how to satisfy their love interest’s desires. By the time a love interest has noticed them, they would’ve known more about the love interest than that person knows themselves! The right one will find this intriguing. They are super intelligent and can work rings around a partner. This can be powerfully sexy. Their research helps them keep a love interest satisfied and content.

Despite the fact that Venus in Scorpio women hate to be desperate for love, they are willing to do anything to obtain the one they love. This is what makes their love so deep and meaningful. It’s because their emotions run so deep. They are willing go give their everything-money, time, energy, body, and soul. Some of them are even willing to die for the one they love. They will be cute, sweet, sexy, good wives, anything their love interest wants them to be if it means they can have the person’s love in return. Some people find their undying loyalty irresistible.

These women are passionate about anything and anyone they want. Their passion is evident in the way they do things. This can be alluring.

The Venus in Scorpio woman’s weakness is her need to control how everything goes. She plans all of her moves carefully, but when things go astray, which it often does in love, she gets knocked off-balance. She may form love-hate relationships with lovers because she’s both in control and out of control when in love. She may want love to be the way she wants it to be, but the other person is another being with needs and desires as well.

There’s also some things she keeps close to her chest, things she’s not willing to give up, and things she’s not willing to accomodate on. But she may expect that from a partner.

They also are known for not fully trusting others, not even the one they love. They don’t always stalk their lovers, but they might at times. Their jealousy can be nasty. They can be possessive and obsessive. They don’t let things go. If they even suspect their lovers of giving their time and devotion to someone else, it can get ugly. Remember I said they’d do anything for the one they love? With harsh aspects and the right motivation, they will fight and kill for their lovers, too. They don’t like competition. And if their love interest gives the competition any attention, they will be resentful. They don’t even want their lover spending more time with family and work than with them, let alone another broad.

Then the amount of drama they need to be happy in a relationship can be overwhelming. They need a relationship to be deep, passionate, and meaningful. They expect their partner to make a lot of sacrifices for them. They are known for their ultimatums, which can make lovers feel like they’re in a binding contract rather than a loving relationship with a healthy moderate exchange.

Because they get so deeply involved in their relationships, it’s hard for their lovers to let loose and have a good time. This isn’t to say they can’t be fun partners, but they aren’t a “hook up” buddy, either. There are always strings attached with these ladies. You’re not just going to have your fun with them and move on and come back later. Once you’re with them, you’re with them for life or you’re not with them at all. There’s no fooling around and playing games with this emotional water sign. No way. They will find a way to keep you or they will let you go and you’ll be dead to them.

In order to keep the Venus in Scorpio woman feeling happy and loved, you must be genuine. That’s it. While you would think it would be that simple, in order to prove you’re genuine you must be willing to sacrifice and share everything you have and are with this person. You must be willing to ride or die with them, just like they are willing to do the same for you. The ones that aren’t serious will cower away from this. The ones that are totally in love with Venus in Scorpio will find these demands to be easy.

She wants someone who’s willing to invest the time and effort it takes to keep her around. She wants love to have meaning. She wants it to transform her life. She needs someone deep, someone who isn’t superficial.

Sexually, these women are passionate. They don’t just give up their bodies to anyone, so when they do find the right lover, they let it all out. They enjoy skin to skin action. They might be experimental and a little kinky, but they need to have a deep connection with their partner in order to be willing to do it at all. And when they do give and get it all, they need to know that they are the only one. Sex is their confirmation of their love. If their partner steps out on them, that’s ultimate betrayal. They might pretend to forgive you, but they will never forget. Best believe they will find some way to make sure it doesn’t happen again.

They should be careful not to use sex for power in their relationship or to keep a relationship going, though. Sex can’t buy love all the time.

They may enjoy their inner thighs rubbed or kissed during the experience. They may like to be held at the waist. They may like their toes kissed or rubbed, too. The may like their sexual organs teased in some way, too. They might like to return the favor to their partner.

Scorpio is traditionally ruled by Mars and is currently ruled by Pluto. Look for her Mars and Pluto signs. Then, find the Venus sign on this page that’s closest. For example, if she has Mars and/or Pluto in Sagittarius, read Venus in Sagittarius.

Venus in Sagittarius

Sagittarius

Feminine Identity: When Venus enters Sagittarius, the mutable fire sign, she enters a lucky placement. She doesn’t feel entirely comfortable in Sagittarius, but there are a few things she has in common with the sign. For one, Venus is a benefic planet just like Sagittarius’s ruling planet Jupiter. This makes both energies positive and beneficial all the time. Neither can ever bring too much harm. Of course, too much of a good thing can cause some problems. Venus likes that Sagittarius provides a life of ease. They both want to have a good time. With all the luck she gets in this placement, why work? On the other hand, this combination can cause laziness and weight gain. Venus is also different from Sagittarius in many ways. She may not like the exaggerated nature of Sagittarius because it causes too much drama. She might also find Sagittarius to be blunt, fiery, and unrefined. She’s into balance and harmony. Sagittarius isn’t always interested in pretending they’re everybody’s friend. Last, while it’s easy for her to attract love in this sign, it’s hard to keep it consistent.

Venus in Sagittarius women want their love interests to see them as fun, good-humored, adventurous, positive, knowledgeable, and experienced individuals. They want their love interests to know they won’t tie them down.

They tend to want to the ideal girl in their love interest’s eyes. They want to be sexy, cute, beautiful, sweet, quiet, talkative, independent and yet co-dependent, a friend, a good wife, a good mother and everything in between! While achieving all of this is difficult, if it’s not impossible, they will try it!

Some of them are religious, spiritual, and/or philosophical. They want their love interests to know they have morals and ethics. They generally try to be good to people, especially the one they love. This might tame the wild spirit of Sagittarius just a little more.

They can be generous with their love interests, showering affection and an abundance of resources to impress their love interests.

They also try to impress their love interests with their accomplishments. They want their love interests to know that if they get with them, they can share in their wealth.

These women might wear clothing that displays their success and wealth in some way. They might like wearing designer items when around someone they like. Or they might prefer casual clothes that are loose-fighting, like a loose-fighting dress that blows in the breeze or some dusty jeans. They might care less how they look in front of their love interest. Some might like to show some skin. They may especially like to show their legs. Short skirts and shorts might be preferred. Some of them tend to like colorful or eclectic fashions that display their humor and individuality. These ladies look good with or without weight, so they can gain or lose and still manage to look good!

Venus in Sagittarius women attract love interests to them through their sheer zest for life. They just appear like a lot of fun. They have a careless nature that makes them seem easy to be around. They always seem young, no matter how old, so they never lose suitors.

They are not usually shy. They are flirty and honest. They compliment their love interests and might invite them to dance. You’d better take them up on that offer when you can. These ladies tend to move on fast!

The ones that are shy can’t help but show their excitement all over their face. They are known for being a little too enthusiastic when their crush is around, so they’re pretty obvious.

A lot of suitors are attracted to them because they don’t seem demanding. They seem to keep lovers at arms-length and they seem up for a good time. They seem down for an open relationship. Even if they are looking for something stable, they seem to know how to keep things exciting and sexy even in committed relationships.

They know how to make people laugh. They always know how to make love interests smile, which is very appealing. And they tend to have dazzling smiles themselves.

The Venus in Sagittarius woman’s weakness is that she’s difficult to pin down. She might think you’re cute and all, but that doesn’t mean she’s always looking for anything serious.  Even sex is not enough to make her stay in a steady relationship. You’ve got to offer so much more than that. Even when in a steady relationship, she’s also always busy doing something. She’s outgoing and on-the-go. If you’re looking to make her into a domestic kitten, you’ll be disappointed. For her, “absence makes the heart grow fonder”. She needs her space, independence, and freedom.

As easy-going as she looks, she’s far more difficult to please than she appears. It’s not that she can’t get all she wants herself, in fact she’d rather, but if you really want her to stay loyal and connected to you, you have to be an asset. You need to make a committed relationship beneficial and worth her while. You need to be dropping money. You need to be making love to her. You need to be going out of your way to take her on some of your adventures. And most importantly, you need to respect and accept her right to be herself.

It might seem that she expects perfection from a lover. She is idealistic and does want to be put on a pedestal. She wants to be treated like a trophy girl. You need to be proud of her and show her off. You need to show her how much you want her. That means you’ve got to travel the world over to please her.

She can be a little insensitive. She tends to be blunt to a fault and may seriously hurt a person’s feelings. She might jump into affairs and quickly cut them off, not caring who she hurts. She might dump people for lacking in some way, and she won’t be afraid to say it. Venus certainly doesn’t get along with this unrefined nature, so she might lose love interests because of her mouth.

Some of these women are careless in general. They might drink and drive, they might sleep around and have too many children, or they might go out clubbing all night, no matter who’s at home watching the kids. Of course, the whole natal chart would shed more light on this tendency. This happens with the less evolved types. This type might have a difficult time taking responsibility.

She has a hard time taking responsibility during arguments, too. If you come to her about something, about anything, her first reaction is to run, run, run. She doesn’t like negativity. She doesn’t want to talk about her feelings and how serious she needs to be. She wants to think about nothing but positive things when with someone she loves. She feels if a lover can’t make her happy all the time, then that person isn’t the one for them. This is a nearly impossible standard though.

She might be preachy or take the moral high road. She won’t act like a victim, but she may always think she’s right and everyone else is wrong, including her lover.

In order to keep this lady feeling happy and loved, she needs someone who makes her life better. She wants a partner that makes her feel more attractive, happier, and more confident. She wants someone who is positive, someone who is generous, and someone who accepts her. She needs to feel like a trophy in the eyes of her partner.

Sexually, these women are open-minded and adventurous. They enjoy the experience best when it’s fun. They like to try new things, but they don’t like when foreplay is too complicated. They don’t like to take too much time on foreplay. They eventually need the action.

They may like their legs held, kissed, or caressed during the act.

Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter. Look at the Jupiter sign and then find the Venus sign on this page that’s closest. For example, if Jupiter is in Capricorn, read Venus in Capricorn.

Venus in Capricorn

Capricorn

Feminine Identity: Venus enters the cardinal earthy Capricorn. This sign is ruled by the cold and calculating planet Saturn. There are some things that Venus is comfortable with here, and some things she’s not too keen on. Saturn is exalted in Venus’s own sign, Libra. Therefore, Venus understands Saturn’s need for self-control, modesty, and relationship responsibility. She relates to Capricorn’s reserved nature. But Capricorn can be a little more firm about it. Venus is easy-going and not as serious as Capricorn is. She’s happy as long as a relationship is pleasurable. Capricorn wants to place rules and boundaries, which can make a relationship less pleasurable and ideal.

Venus in Capricorn women want their love interests to see them as ambitious, hard-working, down-to-earth, cool, dependable, mature, and loyal individuals.

They want their love interests to know that they can be good providers and will make good mates. They want their love interests to see they have a lot to offer. But they want the dirty dogs to know they also don’t play any games.

These women are mature and looking for real love. Even with a someone they’re really attracted to, they set those boundaries.

Mostly, though, they are goal-oriented. When they set their sights on someone, they are determined to win that person’s affections.

In order to give them just the right class and just the right sexy, they aim for form-fitting attire in business, earthy, or sleek colors. They might be a fan of pencil skirts or bodycon dresses. These ladies like to stay in shape. They might choose attire that gives them a slimmer waist.

They may not show a lot of skin, but they make sure you know what’s going on underneath. Some do show a lot of skin if they’re feeling ambitious enough. They know what it takes to get their love interest to notice them. When they do show skin, they might like to show off their legs.

Leather always makes them feel sexy and in control.

They might whiten their teeth and make sure their skin is glowing before they get around their love interest. They might feel self-conscious if they wear braces unless braces are the new trend.

They like to look like they are worth it, so they might wear name brand attire or high-quality clothing and accessories.

Venus in Capricorn women attract love interests to them in traditional ways. They might flirt quietly and maturely. They might offer to cook dinner for a lover or they might buy or make their love interest a gift.

Love interests are drawn to them because they appear cool, calm, and in control. There’s a bossy sexiness about them. They seem to be able to manage a whole lot at the same time. The only thing they can’t control is their charisma.

These ladies like to take their time. They don’t like to rush. Those who appreciate that in a woman will love this about her.

These women seem like they have it all together. They are smart, practical, and wise. They are good with finances. They seem to have their scruples. When you get to know them, you realize they know what they’re doing.

Because these women usually have their own money and other assets, they are willing to split the bill or treat their partner to some dinner sometimes. This can be attractive to a partner who wants to be taken care of.

These women aren’t attention-seekers when it comes to love. In fact, they can even be a shy. Even if they love attention in other aspects of their lives, when around their crush they play it cool and keep their distance. They prefer to be approached, but if they want you, they will approach you in a smooth and straightforward way after they’ve carefully thought out what they want to say.

They don’t toy with people’s feelings. Eventually, they will let you know how they feel. They just need the right time to do so.

These women are classy. Despite what you might think, they have standards and they know how to behave on a date. This can be very attractive.

They are down-to-earth though. They know how to let go and have a little fun. They can be easy-going as well. They have a sense of humor, too.

The Venus in Capricorn woman’s weakness is that she’s got far more to offer than most of her suitors can compliment. Really, she doesn’t often need a partner accept for companionship. But her success can really be intimidating, especially because she often expects partners to offer even more than she has! She wants to be taken care of, but she can really take care of herself. It’s hard finding a partner that can truly meet her halfway. She may have to lower some of her expectations a bit. But trying to tell this stubborn lady to do that is more difficult than pulling teeth.

She’s also really distant. Despite the fact that she wants companionship, she’s rather reserved and traditional in some aspects. She’s always waiting for the right time to take the next step in her relationships. While this protects her from those who aren’t serious, it can also appear like she doesn’t trust the people she loves until they have really proven themselves.

She also might take love too seriously. She’s looking for someone loyal and dependable. She’s not really into airy affairs. If she does get in one, she has to get something out of it. When she’s serious, she is. This might dull the relationship a little bit, but she will definitely try to make sure it’s worth it.

They also take their time choosing lovers. They may be sure they love someone, but they may not always be sure that person is the one. They might run away from people who really care for them because of their insecurities or fears. They sometimes take too much time trying to decide when to tell someone their feelings or when to decide to choose a lover. By the time they’ve decided, their lovers might have moved right on. They need time. Lovers who are interested have to give them that time.

She might be known to use people for money or status. Most Venus in Capricorns are not like this, but there are some out there. They might get with people for the benefits or for business rather than love or pleasure. They are practical women and study the advantages of every situation. They have to be careful not to hurt people while climbing the ladder on someone else’s back.

She’s a realist. Sometimes, this makes it seem like she lacks imagination or that she’s negative. There are times where she might cut down others’ self-esteem or bring the mood down. A lot might sound good to her, but if your promises seem unrealistic, she’ll burst your bubble quickly. It’s best to be realistic about what you can do for her.

In order to keep the Venus in Capricorn woman feeling happy and loved, you must be serious about her. Take all the steps necessary in a courtship. Take her out on a couple of dinners. Spend time with her. Get to know her life and family. Be someone she can depend on.

Nothing makes her happier than tokens of commitment. If you can’t afford a ring right now, or if she’s not ready for marriage, do something to show her how much you want her and care about her.  You have to make her feel secure.

Sexually, these women are raw and straightforward. They like the experience to be simple and earthy. They have boundaries and rules, but they don’t mind a few kinks here and there. They like role-playing a lot.

They may like their legs rubbed, kissed, or caressed. they like skin-to-skin action in general.

Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, the planet of limitations and boundaries. Find the sign Saturn is in and then look for the Venus sign on this page that’s closest. For example, if Saturn is in Aquarius, read Venus in Aquarius.

Venus in Aquarius

Aquarius

Female Identity: Venus enters the erratic and changeable Aquarius, ruled by changeable Uranus and limiting Saturn. Aquarius is a fixed air sign. In this sign, there are some things that are similar to her nature. She’s an air planet; Aquarius is an air sign. Venus is about close social encounters; Aquarius is the sign of friendships and associations. Both Venus and Aquarius are about fairness and justice. But they have some differences. Venus is partner-oriented while Aquarius is independent. Venus is all about physical pleasures and gratification. Aquarius can live without the material and physical world. Venus likes when things are a little more predictable and pleasant. Aquarius sweeps in with its changes regardless of who’s ready for them.

Venus in Aquarius women want to be seen as unique, independent, cool, and intelligent individuals. They would want their love interests to see them as a best friend, as someone easy-going and easy to talk to.

These ladies don’t like to be boxed in, so they generally just want their love interests to see their fun sides. They want their love interest to know they are open-minded and quirky. They are someone who doesn’t mind being a little dorky and cute at times, sassy and sexy other times.

When around their love interest, what they wear all depends on their mood and what they like at the moment. Some of them tend to wear the newest trends. Others might have their own original style. They might enjoy bold and/or cool colors like electric blue, aqua, or turquoise. They might go for some neon, too. They might like to show a little skin sometimes, and other times they might not. They might generally like to show their legs or ankles. They might like sandals or ankle bracelets. Whatever they wear, they want their love interest to see them as someone who isn’t like any other girl they’ll ever meet.

Venus in Aquarius women attract love interests to themselves by being friendly, cute, a little flirty, and honest. They aren’t overt flirts because they don’t like being desperate, but they may give hugs and cute little love notes. They might even be a little spontaneous in their approach. They like to shock their love interests.

Love interests are attracted to them because they seem to be a little rebellious. They also seem really sweet and friendly.

People are really drawn to their intelligence. They care about world affairs and have their own independent thoughts and opinions on current events. They can be a lot of airy fun, but they are brilliant thinkers.

They make great conversationalists overall. They get close to their love interest by first conversing and becoming a good friend.

These ladies are experimental. This can be really attractive. They are unafraid to try the odd, eccentric, or unusual. They draw in quite a bit of suitors as a result.

The Venus in Aquarius woman’s weakness is that she’s impersonal and super independent. She doesn’t like being defined by her relationship and won’t let a partner hang on to her. She needs space. She needs her own thing. She won’t share everything with a partner and doesn’t need to know everything about her partner. This might make the partner feel as if they’re not in a real relationship but an actual friendship.

Venus in Aquarius women never want to feel owned by a partner, no matter who they’re dating. Some of them may not even want to be introduced as someone’s girlfriend and would rather introduce themselves as an individual. Some of them might think it’s perfectly fine for them to kiss someone just for fun, swing partners, or have sex outside of the relationship as long as they officially stay with their partner. Few do this, but if there are harsh aspects and the person isn’t evolved, it’s possible. Even if these women never step out of a relationship (because most of them are loyal, being a fixed sign and all), they don’t like feeling owned or possessed. That jealousy thing is not cute to them, either.

Venus in Aquarius women can be unusual. Some of them are just quirky, but others can be real oddballs. They might have radical viewpoints. They might be involved in some suspicious things. They might do eccentric or erratic things or have weird hobbies and interests. If they can find someone with the same interests in common, this may not be a problem.

You can always count on them to be non-traditional. If you’re expecting them to be a quiet little lady cooking in the kitchen, you’ve got another thing coming.

Speaking of radical viewpoints, they can be fierce about their beliefs. They might act like know-it-alls or they may act above certain petty behaviors. As open-minded as they usually are, there are some behaviors and personalities they just don’t like. And when they don’t like it, they look down on it.

In order to make them feel happy and loved, you simply have to accept them as they are. They don’t require too much. They enjoy sweet little gestures here and there, some spontaneous surprise dates, and kisses and hugs at times. But mostly, they need someone who will treat them like a good friend. They get scared when relationships get too serious or emotionally messy. Just keep it cool and calm for them. Be open-minded.

Sexually, these ladies can take pleasure in being a little experimental. They like to try new things and step outside of the box. They might identify with many different sexualities, so sex might be an interesting experience for both partners.

On the other hand, some of them might be completely asexual and may care to have a mental connection rather than a physical one. They may be above petty physical desires and may not like being in overly sexed love affairs. These are the types that don’t like being objectified too tough.

They do get so caught in the mind that they have a difficult time coming back down to the body. They have to be tempted to want to experience it at all.

When you do bring them down to earth, they like their legs and ankles kissed and caressed during the act.

Aquarius is traditionally ruled by Saturn and currently ruled by Uranus. Find the Saturn and Uranus sign. Then look for the Venus sign that’s closest. For example, if Saturn and/or Uranus is in Pisces, read Venus in Pisces.

Venus in Pisces

Pisces

Female Identity: Venus enters Neptune’s and Jupiter’s sign, her exalted position, Pisces last. Here, she is at her best. She sheds her physical skin for something more spiritual (or rather translucent). Here, love is boundless (they tend to see friendship, family, and romantic love as equal forms of love and they have no qualms with homosexuality and asexuality, seeing both as acceptable as heterosexuality). Beauty is limitless. Friendship is forever. Anything else you can think of that transcends the boundaries of our usual thinking relates to Neptune and the sign of Pisces.  Venus can get a lot accomplished in the realm of dreams. Of course, she’s more at home with physical pleasures usually. Here, she’s reaching places she’s never reached before, but not without sacrifice. With Pisces being ruled by Jupiter, the other benefic planet, Venus sees that nothing but good can come from this sign. There is a strong moral and idealistic lean coming from planet Jupiter which makes love seem far more beautiful than it ever does in her own home. Of course, Jupiter is the planet of exaggeration…

Venus in Pisces women want their love interests to see them as sweet, feminine, easy-going, understanding, attractive, and as a soul mate. They want to be their love interest’s ideal girl. They want to make life easier for their love interests. They are willing to sacrifice a lot to make sure their love interests are happy.

They want their love interests to always see the good in them, to always be happy with them, to always accept them. They want to always be considered beautiful on the inside and out by a lover, no matter what happens or what obstacles come in the way. They even want their flaws to be accepted by a love interest.

In order to make their love interests happy, they might often shape-shift their appearance. They are amazing when it comes to the art of disguise. They are the best actors and queens of shape-shifting. They can recreate themselves into their lovers’ ideal. So, their image may change according to who they’re interested in.

If they are more confident in themselves, they may go for more feminine and soft colors. They might wear sensual and flowing fabrics. Some of them like to show skin, but many of them are too shy to expose too much. If their love interest really likes it, they will do it. But if they find that their love interest dislikes it, they will cover up more. They are adaptable. They might enjoy trying to figure out which look will work.

They may not care too much about their wardrobe, but their shoes will say everything. They might wear sexy shoes to attract the one they like. They will have pedicures more than likely. That’s how you’ll know they’re serious.

Venus in Pisces women attract love interests to them by being kind and sympathetic. They listen to their love interests. They quite often let the ones they love take the lead and seldom complain. They seem quiet, humble, and feminine, which is highly attractive to suitors.

They allow their love interests a lot of freedom. They don’t care if their love interests have a girlfriend or doesn’t love them in return. Their love is boundless. They tend to be the hopeless romantic at times and they often accept things from a relationship other women would not.

They are easygoing and content. They don’t have physical or material demands. They just want to have a good time and feel connected with their partner. They want to be held and kissed. They want to be told they are loved. That’s all they require. Most suitors are drawn to their simplicity.

These women have a soft and gentle allure. They appear delicate, like they need someone to help them and care for them. They also welcome all sorts of people with open arms, so they seem like a good person to go to for anything. They are willing to help and care for their love interests in return and they are seldom judgmental.

Venus in Pisces women are too shy to outwardly ask someone out. They might flirt shyly or they may be a little playful with someone they like. But actually confessing their feelings might be a little challenging. They might hope their love interest notices them.

The Venus in Pisces woman’s weakness is that she’s just not sure what she wants. She wants to be loved, but she’s often not sure who she really wants. If too many people ask her out at once, she might date them all, not really knowing how to push suitors away and maybe not really wanting to. She may like keeping her options open and having many suitors dote upon her.

She doesn’t state what she wants in a relationship either. This is because she doesn’t really know what she wants. She often lets her lovers walk all over her. She may be unhappy, but may not say anything. She may not know what to say. Later, she might become like a passive-aggressive or manipulative shark to get what she wants. All she would’ve needed to do was speak up. But because she’s afraid of disappointing her lover and arguing, she may be indirect and secretive.

She might even cheat behind her lover’s back.

This woman is also rather sensitive. She hates arguing, as was mentioned. She won’t like her flaws being thrown in her face. That’s sure to destroy the ideal love she wants. And it’s sure to make her want to run for the hills-or into the arms of someone else.

These women are also too idealistic in love. It can be bad for them and their partner. They tend to let in losers that aren’t good for them just to have love and that feeling of freedom. They really shy away from commitment because there’s too much responsibility and obligation involved. They also don’t like having to meet others’ expectations. That’s partially why they don’t state their demands. They don’t want people handing them a list of demands so they try not to do it to others.

This idealistic streak can be bad for their partners, too. They might expect their partners to be the perfect lovers, like the ones they read about in books or see on the movie screen. They might idolize their crush even. That can be hard to live up to.

These girls have a difficult time functioning alone. Though they can be independent and like their freedom, they suffer with break-ups more than others. It’s hard for them to bounce back. The problem is they tend to give too much of themselves away. They also become too emotionally dependent on their partner to the point they get lost after the relationship is over. They have to maintain some independence.

These ladies can be distant. They know how to distance themselves emotionally. They just don’t know how to hurt others’ feelings, which they have to do sometimes.

Last, these ladies are too quick to lose themselves in a partner. They are willing to change everything they are. They shouldn’t have to do all of that to please anybody. If the people in their lives can’t accept them for the beautiful, alluring, and compassionate people they are, they don’t need them!

In order to continue feeling loved and happy, these women need to be accepted, loved, and romanced. They want their fantasies to come true. They want to feel like they can escape the pressures of the world when with a love interest. They want to spend alone time with a lover. They want to be hugged and kissed. Show your affection.

Sexually, these ladies are open-minded but a little shy. They need someone to help them test the waters. Once they dive in though, they generally just get consumed by the experience. They have to be careful not to get addicted. They absolutely love sensual pleasures. They love losing their minds, bodies, and spirits for a while. Love-making could be an outlet for them.

They tend to like role-playing, experimenting, and kinks. They might have some fantasies they want fulfilled, but they might be too shy to initiate them. If they have a gentle and pleasing partner, they might be able to share their fantasies or their partner will ask.

Pisces is traditionally ruled by Jupiter and currently ruled by Neptune. Find the signs of Jupiter and Neptune. Then find the Venus signs that are closest. For instance, if Jupiter and/or Neptune are in Aries, read Venus in Aries.

Introduction To Astrology: The Signs, Aspects, and Houses

6 Mar

You may have heard of zodiac signs. You may have gone through life asking people what their “signs” are. You may know of the signs Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces. If you don’t know those signs:

What you may not know is that these “zodiac signs”, fit for your birthday, are one of 10 main “planetary” signs you have in your natal chart. The zodiac signs most people know are Sun signs. Did you know that you also have Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto signs? These planets enter each of the 12 zodiac signs you’re most familiar with. So if you thought your sign was “Aquarius”, for example, remember that your Sun sign is Aquarius. This means the Sun, the actual star in the sky, was moving into the sign of Aquarius. This is why you’re able to find your Sun sign just by knowing your birthday. The Sun stays in one sign for about a month. This is why these “zodiac signs” became really popular. The Sun is the center of the universe and is most visible to us. Therefore, it rules over “consciousness” astrologically. It’s no wonder we are most aware of this sign of all of them.

Finding the other signs often confuse most people. In order to find the other planetary signs, you would have to find a natal chart. With modern technology, you can find a FREE natal chart online! Now people are able to learn more about their other signs. The whole chart gives us a complete picture about ourselves. It’s not something to let rule over your life. It’s more something that can help you reflect upon yourself. It gives you insight. Natal charts don’t tell you exactly who you are, but they do reveal potential and tendencies that we may overlook in our personalities and lives. Only we know how the information can be applied in our lives. The charts just give us the visual to describe what is already there.

To get your FREE natal chart, my personal favorite website is astro.com.

After you have your natal chart, look at the box on the left-hand side. There is the symbol representing the planet, the name of the planet written out for you, and the sign to the right of it. On the big wheel, the different symbols on the chart show you the planets’ symbols as well as the sign it’s in. Let’s just focus in the box to the left. First pick a planet, then to the right of the planet, pick a sign. Look at the signs next to them.

Sun to Pluto are the most important for those just studying. They are the “planets” that rule over the 12 signs. They have symbols next to them, too. When you see a planet next to a sign, it means this planet has entered this sign when you were born. So basically, you have a Sun sign, Moon sign, Mercury sign, Venus sign, etc.

All of the planets have their own meaning. All of the signs have their own meaning. Let me help you understand what they mean. We combine their meanings to get the whole story. When a planet enters a sign, it is telling you “your needs” (planet) and “how you express yourself to get your needs met in that area” (sign). The planet is the “need”, the sign is “how you express the need so you can get the need met”. The chart is telling you things about your personality.

In order to begin to understand the rest of what you’re about to read, it’s important to get to know the planets and signs well. It takes practice.

To understand the gist of planetary meanings, the Charts Above titled “Ruling Planets”,”The Planets”, “Planets”, and “Planet” can tell you what the planets and luminaries mean in basic terms. Then move to the charts that elaborate on the signs, which are also above, just below the planets. Combine the meaning of the planet and sign charts to get a better understanding of what the planet in sign means in full detail.  We are most familiar with the Sun, so I’ll start there.

If Sun is in Leo, let’s look at the meaning of the luminary/planet Sun and the meaning under the sign of Leo. The Sun is the ego or expression, just using two key words on the charts above, right? Leo is creative and popular, using two words from the charts above. This means the individual expresses their “ego” and “expression” in a creative way. This may also mean their ego and expression are somehow related to being popular, too. This tells us that the Sun in Leo individual must be one dramatic person who loves attention! Their ego and expression are tied to being popular and creative. The Sun is the “need” to express ourselves, our ego, our identity. Leo is “how” someone would express that need to get it met, and Leos would be pretty creative in order to express themselves and get noticed.

We all have a Sun sign, and all need attention or to feel important to a certain degree. The Sun represents that side to all of us. But how we go about it makes all the difference, and that’s where the Signs come in.

Let’s look at some of the other luminaries and planetary bodies.

I’ll use Moon in Taurus as an example next. Moon is the planet of emotions, jut picking a keyword from the chart here. Taurus is sensual and pleasure-seeking. So, this may mean that these individuals need something sensual and pleasure-seeking for emotional reasons or that it is related to their feelings and emotions.

Do you see how it works now? If not, leave me a comment.

Each sign is also ruled by one of these planets. The Charts Above shows which planet rules over each sign. The Ruling planet’s sign has influence on other signs ruled BY the planet. I’ll explain this a little more.

Sun rules over Leo

Moon rules over Cancer

Mercury rules over Gemini and Virgo

Venus rules over Taurus and Libra

Mars rules over Aries and Scorpio (traditionally)

Jupiter rules over Sagittarius and Pisces (traditionally)

Saturn rules over Capricorn and Aquarius (traditionally)

Uranus rules over Aquarius

Neptune rules over Pisces

Pluto rules over Scorpio

So even though each of these planets enter a sign, they each rule over a sign, even when they haven’t entered in one. This means that particular planet is so similar in meaning and expression to that particular sign, the planet influences any other planets that enter the sign similar to the planet.

The Sun and Leo have a lot in common, for example. The Sun is about the ego and creativity. Leo is known as a sign that can be a little egocentric and VERY creative. So, no matter what planet is in Leo, the Sun, the ruling planet of Leo, will influence that planet. So imagine how powerful the expression will be when the Sun is IN the sign of its ruler! That person would have the Sun sign of Leo.

So let me elaborate a little on what I said. For example, if your Mars is in Leo, you would look at Sun, the ruling planet of Leo, and see the sign Sun is in. In the chart above, they have Mars in Leo. Their Sun sign is also in Leo. Sun in Leo influences Mars in Leo because that is Leo’s ruling planet, no matter what.

Another example, They have Moon in Taurus. Taurus is ruled by Venus. This person’s Venus is in Leo. So Venus in Leo influences Moon in Taurus. Sometimes, the person may connect with a Moon in Leo simply because their ruling planet, Venus, is in Leo.

Almost every luminary and planet has a domicile position, an exalted position, a falling position, and a detrimental position. These are called major dignities and debilities. There are other dignities, but these are the main ones. The outer generational planets (Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto) are still undecided when it comes to exaltation and fall. There have been suggestions, but nothing definite.

Just because someone has one of these positions doesn’t mean that people are more blessed or more cursed than others. But it does give us insight as to how closely connected the individual sign is to the planet. It’s something to study and reflect on for anybody.

dignities and debilities

Domiciles-Usually when the planet is in the sign it rules. In Chelsie’s chart above, for example, the Sun is in Leo and Pluto is in Scorpio. The Sun rules over Leo and Pluto rules over Scorpio, no matter where it is in the chart. However, when it enters its own sign, it is in its “own house”. Therefore, it operates freely and is a strong position for the planet. If thinking about an acting role in a movie or play, let’s say the planet is acting in a role it is used to playing. It could be like the individual who considers themselves nice and sweet in real life playing a kind and thoughtful person in a play or movie. These individuals are capable of fully expressing the planet’s energy naturally. This isn’t always a good thing, but it isn’t necessarily bad. The individual is unafraid to express the nature of the planet. The things that the planet represents aren’t a threat. For instance, the Sun in Leo above would be uninhibited when it comes to expressing the ego, their full creativity, or their dominance (though astrological aspects would alter their expression of course, so I’ll talk more about what aspects are later). Normally, they wouldn’t see too much wrong with being confident. Sun in Leos don’t fear the spotlight or taking on the role of leader, no matter what. People respect them because they put themselves out there, regardless of the consequences. They are comfortable with all eyes on them! Pluto in Scorpio would help the individual seek power in all its forms. They may not have any hang-ups with subjects that are taboo, unlike other generations. Pluto in Scorpios don’t fear the dark sides of life. In fact, that’s where they thrive! Despite the fact that the planet can operate freely, I’ve noticed that the benefits usually come in more intimate, long-lasting settings rather than on a mass level or in the public. Sun in Leos, for example, tend to be very good parents, family leaders, and role models, while commanding and demanding bosses and authority figures. Still, they are capable of channeling their energies in any way they like because they fully understand the nature of the planet.

Exalted-Usually when a planet is at its most refined. It’s almost like the planet is an “honored guest”, treated really well and respected, but not quite “at home”. The planet has to be on his best behavior to remain friends with the energy. If using it in the context of a role the planet is playing in a play, it’s over-dramatizing its role on stage. The planet is acting as a character it really likes, the role brings out their best acting abilities, and the planet fits the role. They look “the part”. It’s like the individual who considers themselves nice and sweet in real life playing a quiet and shy role. Being nice and kind doesn’t necessarily make an individual quiet and shy, but it won’t be difficult to see a nice and sweet person acting quiet, shy, or demure. They are often associated with one another. People often assume that quiet people are considerate and pleasant to be around because they don’t cause drama, but they are different. The expression isn’t completely natural, so it may be a little exaggerated. In the above chart, the Moon is exalted in Taurus. These individuals tend to have a pretty good handle on their emotions. They are warm, affectionate, and love the comforts of home, but they aren’t an emotional wreck because they know how to stay calm in most situations. Of course, again, aspects will affect their expression. Generally, they come from a comfortable background and don’t have too many problems. The planet isn’t challenging for them. This would make them seem to handle the planet better than the rulership sign. I’ve noticed that exalted placements tend to operate better on a mass level, rather than in intimate settings. For example, on the outside and in public situations, Moon in Taurus natives know how to stay calm during a global crisis situation and are very good at not letting their emotions hang out on their jobs. They are kind to their fellow workers, but a little reserved. They are patient and nurturing in professions that deal with caring for others outside of the family. However, on the intimate level, they can be very stubborn and hold too much in. When their emotions finally boil over, it’s hard to calm them down! Still, it is much easier for them to handle the planet than it is for most people. Emotions can get a little messy, but hardly when Moon is in Taurus. We would naturally expect emotions to be stable and practically expressed all the time, like it is when in Taurus. But so often, emotions aren’t that way.

Exalted Signs:

Sun in Aries

Moon in Taurus

Mercury in Virgo (some also say Aquarius)

Venus in Pisces

Mars in Capricorn

Jupiter in Cancer

Saturn in Libra

Uranus (undetermined but some speculate it to be exalted in Scorpio)

Neptune (undetermined but some speculate it to be exalted in Cancer or Leo)

Pluto (undetermined but some have speculated it to be in Aries, Leo, Pisces, and/or Virgo, mostly Leo)

Fall-Usually when a planet is less refined. It is as if the planet is an ignored guest and incapable of having as much influence as it would like. The planet would normally be in the opposite sign of the exalted position. The planet is in fear here. It is afraid to chart this new energy. It isn’t threatening here, but it is challenging. Think of this as the planet playing a challenging role in a play. Think of an individual who is nice and sweet in real life playing the role of a strong-willed and independent person. They aren’t necessarily opposite roles, but it’s hard to see a nice and sweet person exercising too much force or dominance over others. It’s not the native’s fault. They may have found a way to be both nice and powerful, but it is challenging. For instance, Moon is falling in Scorpio, Taurus’s opposite sign. The moon is just as watery and emotional as Scorpio, so it isn’t threatening to be here. But the Moon operates most effectively in the outside world when the emotions are stable and steady. Scorpio is the sign of chaos and power. Here, the Moon isn’t secure. The emotions are too intense and controlling, making the emotions go through so much drama and transforming periods in the native’s life. Sometimes, the drama is caused by others and not of their own doing. It could come from issues with the family that have nothing to do with the native. From my experience, however, Moon in Scorpios seem the worst because the position tends to affect the individuals in a mass or public situation. They aren’t as bad as they seem. Moon in Scorpios often hardly have anyone to share their feelings with (considering their emotions are so overwhelming), so they come across biting, power-hungry, secretive, defensive, and extreme towards the public, if they are open with their feelings at all. They may even seem cold and misunderstood. In an intimate setting, however, they do alright, if they can find someone they really trust. They are capable of deep healing and compassion. They are fiercely loyal and protective. They really just need support and the proper channel. The issues with a fall don’t have to be long-lasting and can be reversed. These individuals just have to overcome their fears. Moon in Scorpios, for instance, fear their own deep emotions. This contributes as to why they are so defensive. With someone acting as “psychologist” in their lives, they can be well on the road to deep healing and can help others who suffer.

If you understand the meaning of the planets, and you really understand the meaning of the signs, you can kind of understand how certain qualities seem to fit less smoothly with others. Considering what the Moon is all about, you can kind of see how Scorpio, just knowing what Scorpio is about, could be challenging.

Sun in Libra

Moon in Scorpio

Mercury in Pisces (some also say Leo)

Venus in Virgo

Mars in Cancer

Jupiter in Capricorn

Saturn in Aries

Uranus (undetermined, but some say Taurus)

Neptune (undetermined, but some say Capricorn or Aquarius)

Pluto (undetermined, but some say Libra, Aquarius, Pisces, and/or Virgo, but mostly Aquarius)

Detriment-Usually when the planet is in the sign opposite its ruling sign. Instead of being at home, this planet is in a place that is totally opposite. It’s, in fact, uncomfortable. Think of someone who is in the home of an enemy. Or think about someone who is used to clean homes and they are forced to stay in a messy home for awhile. Regardless, the planet feels a little out-of-place. In terms of acting on a stage, you can think about an actor acting in a role that is totally far-removed from the individual’s personality. Think of an individual who is nice and sweet in real life acting in a role as an evil, selfish person. It feels insincere. The individual might feel very uncomfortable in the role. When the planet is in this sign, it becomes threatened. Similarly, natives with the position often feel threatened, which leads to them worrying about the situation. For instance, Sun is in detriment in Aquarius. These individuals may make excellent leaders and parental figures. However, they often worry about losing their independence and freedom. They both like the spotlight and fear the expectations coming from demanding individuals. They don’t fear the spotlight itself (which can happen when Sun is in Fall); they fear the negativity that comes with being in the spotlight. They tend to worry a little too much. From my experience, the effects of a detriment happen more on an intimate level than on a mass or public scale. Using Sun in Aquarius, for example, they tend to make great leaders and bosses because they are altruistic and humane. They like working in teams and they are full of genius ideas on how to better humanity. But on the more personal level, they are distant, cold, and aloof. They hardly ever show the same care and compassion for their families that they do for the world. In fact, they tend to break free from their intimates. They are not as warm or inviting as they could be and sometimes it’s hard to rely on them. Of course, with enough insight, anyone is capable of reversing the effects of a detriment. The issue is their problem can’t be overcome with a psychologist at hand, like in Moon in Scorpio’s case. They really are going to have to make sacrifices. It is just as they fear. Sometimes, they will have to give up their freedom and independence if they want to remain in the spotlight. They must learn that this isn’t always a bad thing. They will have to try a balancing act: maintaining distance when necessary, but allowing warmth to peep in through the clouds at least some of the time. This is a lesson for all detrimental positions.

Sun in Aquarius

Moon in Capricorn

Mercury in Sagittarius and Pisces

Venus in Aries and Scorpio

Mars in Taurus and Libra

Jupiter in Gemini and Virgo

Saturn in Cancer and Leo

Uranus in Leo

Neptune in Virgo

Pluto in Taurus

Now, let’s study the Natal wheel a little more. That will be important when learning about the next important thing: houses.

On the right side of the chart, you might notice a big wheel with 12 black dividing lines, each labeled 1 through 12 towards the center of the wheel.

chelsie's chart (4)

Each line points to a sign. You might see a bunch of symbols and red and blue lines in the middle of these black lines. The black lines are pointing to what are called the 12 houses. There are 12 zodiac signs, and there are 12 houses. In order to get the right reading for your 12 houses, you need to know your birth time.

The houses look like slices on a pizza. The “house” begins when the black line, with a small number in the center of the wheel underneath the line, is pointing to a sign. The house ends when it reaches the next numbered line pointing to a sign.

chelsie's chart (7)

Each planet (represented by the symbols) fits into one of the twelve houses, which represents 12 parts of our outer life. The houses are similar to the 12 signs. But while the planets in a sign show us HOW we express ourselves, planets in the houses show us WHERE we express ourselves in our outer world.

In the chart above, the symbol for Venus is in the house labeled 2. This means Venus in Leo is in the 2nd house. So though Venus is in Leo, it is in the 2nd house. Leo is HOW she expresses VENUS, and the 2nd house represents WHERE she expresses this planet. All of the houses have special meaning, just like the planets and signs do.

the-houses-02

Combine the meaning of the houses between all charts above so you readers can get the full picture of what the houses mean in our lives. By combining the charts above, you can really get an in-depth picture of your outer and inner life.

The 12 houses are often symbolically related to the 12 signs:

1st house-Aries

2nd house-Taurus

3rd house-Gemini

4th house-Cancer

5th house-Leo

6th house-Virgo

7th house-Libra

8th house-Scorpio

9th house-Sagittarius

10th house-Capricorn

11th-Aquarius

12th-Pisces

Okay let’s talk about the planets in the houses.

The gist of the houses are

1st house-the Self

2nd house-money and possessions

3rd house-communication and local travel

4th house-home and family

5th house-pleasure, love affairs, children

6th house-work and duty

7th house-partners and negotiations

8th house-shared resources, sex, and the taboo

9th house-Travel, higher education, and beliefs

10th house-Career, reputation, and authority figures

11th house-Friends, associations, hopes and dreams

12th house-Hidden, Subconscious, unconscious, Fear, Regret

Let’s use Chelsie’s Venus in Leo in 2nd house example to help you better understand the planets in the houses. Venus is the planet of pleasure, love, beauty, romance, femininity, and art, according to the chart about planets, right? Leo is creative and popular, dominating and forceful, as well as prideful, based on one of the chart about signs. Other charts give a more traditional view, stating they are generous, warm-hearted, and enthusiastic as well. This means that HOW Chelsie expresses her femininity is through creative avenues. She’s also enthusiastic about her femininity. Artistically, she is creative and may be interested in performing arts, as it gives her popularity. She may be generous with her efforts and resources when it comes to art. She expresses her beauty, or rather adorns herself, in a creative way and may want others to notice how stylish she is. She’s generous though, and may not mind giving make-overs to others. She’s proud of her femininity, and may be more forceful and dominating in her expression, especially in love. Still, she’s warm-hearted and generous in love, too.

Now, all of this is inside the 2nd house. This means where she expresses her love of creative art and beauty, as well as her proud femininity, is in areas concerning the 2nd house. The charts above relate the 2nd house to money and values, possessions, daily routine, inner and outer resources, work, and other things. So, WHERE are we likely to see these qualities? In the way she makes money, in her system of values, reflected in her possessions or the stuff she buys. She is likely to buy creative stuff and items that give her popularity. She is probably more willing to make money doing something that reflects her creative artistry. She would possibly value her “proud femininity”, making her extra girly. Venus is the ruler of Taurus, and Taurus is often associated with the 2nd house, so Venus is considered comfortable and strong in this house. The 2nd house also reveals work, her environment, and daily routine. She is likely to choose creative and artistic work, possibly has a very creative environment and decorates around herself a lot as well, and has a daily routine that’s pretty pleasurable. Possibly, she gets a chance to show off her beautiful works of art all the time and has plenty of time to create things for herself. As far as outer resources, she may have many items of value, items that anyone could want, and she’s generous about giving them to those who need it. The chart owner is rich, by the way. 😉 This house could be hinting at that. Of course, each house relates individually to us. When we observe this in the context of inner resources, we can examine that she’s very talented within and is generous and warm with her attention to her talents, giving out only the best.

Do you sort of get the picture? If not, leave me a comment.

The signs that the black lines are pointing to on the big wheel are called “cusp” signs. (Cusp signs are not when your Sun sign is between one or another because of the day you were born, if that’s what you heard.) Cusp signs represent our overall expression or outlook of the houses in the outside world. The first black line above the “1” represents the start of the first house. The sign that black line is pointing to is the Ascendant or Rising sign.

Each house points to a cusp sign. In Chelsie’s chart above, her first line, the line above the “1”, is pointing to the symbol for Cancer. This means her 1st house cusp is Cancer. Often, again, this is called the Ascendant or Rising house because the 1st house represents our outer self to others, our physical appearance, our awareness, etc. With Chelsie having Cancer Rising, her “self” or how others see her is related to the qualities of Cancer. If we look back at the sign chart in the beginning, we will see that Cancer qualities are related to being sensitive, friend-oriented, being practical, hating to argue, forgiving but never forgetting. It’s already related to the traditional qualities of being emotional and loving, as well as imaginative and intuitive. So, people tend to see Chelsie as sensitive and all about her friends. They see her as imaginative and intuitive. Her attitude towards life is guided by her emotions and she’s aware that she comes across quite sensitive. This is just a brief example. The 1st house is what we are aware of when it comes to ourselves.

The other houses follow a similar pattern.

Besides the houses, you may see red and blue lines on the chart. You may also see a few dotted lines on there, too. These lines are really from one planet to another. Try to trace them and see for yourself. These lines represent Astrological Aspects.

chelsie's chart (6)

The lines can be hard to figure out. This is why you can also look at the symbols that represent these Aspects. These symbols are in the area beneath the planets in signs table to the left of the wheel. They are set up in columns and rows. You may see little red, blue, black, and even green symbols. The most important symbols are the red and blue symbols, much like the red and blue lines on the big wheel. The minor aspects, represented by little black and green symbols, are represented by barely visible dotted lines on the wheel, mixed in there with the red and blue lines. The minor ones will be easier once you get the basics.

chelsie's chart (3)

Aspects show the relationship one planet has with another planet. I mean, when you have so many signs in your chart, wouldn’t it make sense that some energies in our lives get along well, while others don’t? The aspects represent those energies within us that get along and which ones don’t, and so create a bit of stress or challenge for us.

There are five major aspects.

The blue symbols and lines on the wheel represent positive aspects. It means that the two planets connected get along in your life so well, you can find hidden talents within their relationship. The two positive aspects are trines and sextiles.

When considering aspects, it’s kind of important to understand the SIGN’s RELATIONSHIP to one another on the natal wheel and as they are listed. The aspects are sort of determined by this relationship (mostly the degree is the indicator as to what aspect is forming, which are those little numbers listed next to the planets on the wheel and listed next to the signs on the table on the natal chart, but normally understanding the signs can help understand where these degrees lay on a natal chart without having to memorize the numbers).

There are 12 signs, and the 12 signs are often divided in many ways in order for astrologers to better understand the signs and the planets’ relationship with one another when they enter these signs. The signs are usually divided by element, energy, and mode. This is important to consider to better understand aspects.

Let me explain this a little. Let’s list the signs in order to understand their element, energy, and mode.

Taurus

Gemini

Cancer

Leo

Aries is always the first sign when analyzing the signs. Spring is considered the first season of the year in many parts of the year, and the Sun’s entrance in Aries begins on the Spring Equinox (the first day of Spring). That is the day the Sun, the luminary all the other planets and luminaries revolve around, enters the constellation of Aries. That’s why Aries is always first when listing and dividing the signs. The others follow in the order listed above.

Element

When dividing the signs by elements, they are listed every four signs, starting with Aries. So Aries starts off as fire, Taurus is earth, Gemini is air, and Cancer is water. Then the pattern starts over with the next sign, with Leo being fire, Virgo is earth, Libra as air, and Scorpio as a water sign. It continues. Fire signs are usually opposite one Air sign each, and Earth signs are usually opposite one Water sign each.

Fire (opposite Air): Aries, Leo, Sagittarius

Earth (opposite water): Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn

Air (opposite Fire): Gemini, Libra, Aquarius

Water (opposite earth): Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces

Opposite signs

Aries-Libra

Taurus-Scorpio

Gemini-Sagittarius

Cancer-Capricorn

Leo-Aquarius

Virgo-Pisces

Energy

Energies YIN AND YANG are listed every other sign. So Aries, the first sign, is Yin. Taurus, the next sign, is Yang. Gemini, the one after, is Yin. Cancer after that is Yang. And the pattern continues.

Yin: Fire and Air signs-Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, Aquarius

Yang: Earth and Water signs: Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn, Pisces

Mode

Modes are decided every three signs. The signs are usually divided into threes. The three modes they represent are Cardinal, Fixed, and Mutable. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, therefore it is listed under the first mode and leads the cardinal energy. Every three signs, another cardinal is listed. So Aries, Taurus, Gemini starts the first three modes. Taurus is the first fixed sign. Gemini is the first mutable sign. Then Cancer begins the next cycle of modes, with Cancer being the second cardinal, and Leo and Virgo following as the next fixed and mutable signs, and the pattern continues.

Cardinal: Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn (Cardinal represents leadership and initiative)

Fixed: Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius (Fixed represents power, strength, determination)

Mutable: Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces (Mutable represents versatility and adaptability)

Now, let’s look at how this impacts the aspects you might have.

When there is a trine, usually one planet’s sign is in the same ELEMENT (Air, Earth, Fire, Water) as another planet’s sign on the natal wheel. For instance, if Venus is in Aries, it may trine Mars in Sagittarius (Aries and Sagittarius are both fire signs). This indicates that the two planets flow smoothly or easily with one another. With Venus and Mars (considering the meaning of the planets) having this aspect, it can indicate that the romantic life flows smoothly with the sex life.

 

Basically, if one planet in one sign connects with another of the same element, that means these energies don’t cause you much trouble in your life.

Planets in Aries, Sagittarius, Leo can trine each other

Planets in Taurus, Capricorn, Virgo can trine each other

Planets in Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius can trine each other

Planets in Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces can trine each other

Trine Aries-Sagittarius

Trine Aries-Sagittarius

The trine’s symbol looks like a blue triangle and some of the blue lines on the wheel may be trines.

When there is a sextile, usually one planet’s sign has the same ENERGY (Yin/Yang or extroverted and introverted) as another planet’s sign, but they aren’t of the same element or are of opposite element (unlike the trine above) and they aren’t the same mode (Cardinal, Fixed, Mutable). If all the planets meet these same requirements, and form an aspect, they could create a “star” on the natal wheel (that big wheel on the natal chart). This is why it’s called a sextile. This usually indicates that the two planets mildly support one another. With Venus and Mars having this aspect, it could indicate that the romantic life mildly supports the sex life.

 

Example: A planet in Aries would normally sextile a planet in Gemini and Aquarius (since they are both Yin signs with a different element (Gemini and Aquarius are air signs, Aries is a fire sign) and they are also of different modes (Gemini is mutable and Aquarius is fixed, while Aries is cardinal)). So, even though Libra is also a Yin sign (being an air sign), it is of the SAME mode as Aries (Cardinal). Even though Leo and Sagittarius are also both Yin signs, they are of the same ELEMENT (fire) as Aries. So planets in Libra, Leo, and Sagittarius can’t form the aspect of sextile with a planet in Aries.

None of the planets in Yang signs (Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn, Pisces) can form a sextile with a planet in Aries as they don’t share the same energy as Aries.

Each planet in a sign can sextile planets in about two different signs.

Planets in Aries: Planets in Gemini, Aquarius

Planets in Taurus: Planets in Cancer, Pisces

Planets in Gemini: Planets in Aries, Leo

Planets in Cancer: Planets in Taurus, Virgo

Planets in Leo: Planets in Gemini, Libra

Planets in Virgo: Planets in Cancer, Scorpio

Planets in Libra: Planets in Leo, Sagittarius

Planets in Scorpio: Planets in Virgo, Capricorn

Planets in Sagittarius: Planets in Libra, Aquarius

Planets in Capricorn: Planets in Scorpio, Pisces

Planets in Aquarius: Planets in Sagittarius, Aries

Planets in Pisces: Planets in Capricorn, Taurus

sextile example

Notice the beginning of a star is taking shape. If planets enter into these locations, they would form a star shape. It’s like a map.

Sextile’s symbol looks like an asterisk or star.

The red lines and red symbols represent the more powerful aspects. These aspects represent struggle or powerful urges that are difficult to handle or channel. These aspects are called Conjunct, Square, and Opposition.

A conjunct usually happens between two planets within the SAME sign. The planets in the same sign are usually right next to each other on the natal wheel, and they are usually in the same sign. For example, if Venus is in Aries, it may conjunct Mars in Aries. This indicates that the two planets blend well together, almost feeling linked in the individual’s life. With Venus and Mars having this aspect, it can indicate that the romantic life almost gets confused for or mixed with the sex life and vice versa. If Moon and Venus have this aspect, a want or desire gets confused and mixed with the emotional needs and vice versa.

conjunct example

Conjunct’s symbols looks a bit like the male or Mars symbol without an arrow.

conjunct symbol

A square usually happens between two planets that are in signs with the same MODE (Cardinal, Mutable, Fixed) but opposite ENERGIES (Yin/Yang). For example, if you have Venus in Aries, it may square Mars in Capricorn (both being Cardinal signs, but Aries being Yang and Capricorn is Yin energy). This indicates that there is conflict between the two planets. If all the planets are in signs with these traits, it can form an aspect, which could create a perfect “square” on the natal wheel(that big wheel on the chart). That’s why it’s called a “square”. With Venus and Mars having this aspect, it could indicate that there seems to be some conflict between your romantic life and your sex life. This may be more like “inner conflict” rather than anything going wrong in your actual relationship, but for some people, inner turmoil can affect the outside.

Planets in Aries and Libra can square planets in Cancer and Capricorn

Planets in Taurus and Scorpio can square planets in Leo and Aquarius

Planets in Gemini and Sagittarius can square planets in Virgo and Pisces

Planets in Cancer and Capricorn can square planets in Aries and Libra

Planets in Leo and Aquarius can square planets Taurus and Scorpio

Planets in Virgo and Pisces can square planets in Gemini and Sagittarius

 

 

square example

Notice the beginning of a square forming.

A square’s symbol looks like a square.

Finally, there’s opposition. An opposition normally occurs when one planet is in a sign that is opposite another planet’s sign. Usually, the two planets are positioned at opposite ends of the natal wheel. If you see this aspect, you will see a red line connecting from one end of the wheel to the other, east to west, north to south. This means the planets are in opposite signs. Opposite signs are usually signs with the same mode and energy, but opposite ELEMENTS (Air and Fire being opposites, Earth and Water being opposites), but of the same ENERGY. For example, if Venus is in Aries, it may be in opposition to Mars in Libra (both being Cardinal and Yang energy, but Aries is a fire sign and Libra is an air sign). In this situation, one planet is pulling the individual away from the other. They are interfering with one another. In this case, it can indicate that the romantic life seems to interfere with or pull the individual away from the sex life and vice versa. These people sometimes have a hard time finding a partner that can meet both needs.

opposition example

Notice the stars on this example are exactly across from each other. They are on opposite sides of the wheel. The stars would be the planets in those opposite signs.

An opposition’s symbol looks like a figure 8 or an infinity symbol or eye glasses.

opposition symbol

Now, if the planets meet the above conditions, they COULD form an aspect. But often, even though planets that even meet the above conditions won’t always form a strong enough aspect to make a difference. The degree between the two planets make the difference as to whether an aspect is actually reflected on your natal chart, or to wide to even take seriously, and so isn’t even present.

Aspects are reflected by the degrees or orbs between two planets.

Example: You see Sun in Leo has a degree of around “22, right? (Sorry, one is so blurry.) Well, the Moon in Taurus has around “22 as well. They are barely 1 degree or orb apart. This means they square on the natal chart almost exactly. This is a very powerful aspect. The closer these numbers are to one another, the tighter the aspect (which means it will affect this person noticeably). This person has Sun square Moon. In this case, their forceful and prideful ego (Sun in Leo) may create conflict with their pleasure-seeking emotions.

You can see this reflected on the chart wheel when you see the “red” line go from the Sun symbol to the Moon symbol. Aspects affect houses as well. For instance, Sun in Leo is in 2nd house and Moon in Taurus is in the 11th house. This person may often find that their money and values (2nd house) conflict with friends, groups, and goals (11th house, as shown in the “house” chart above).

chelsie's chart (6)

Conjunctions can have an orb as wide as 9 degrees/orbs apart to be relative to an individual. It’s the same with Oppositions. Squaring planets usually are at least 8 degrees wide before people relate to them. Trines can be up to 5 degrees apart (though this is debatable), and sextiles are usually only felt by those people with the degrees or orbs that really tight. Minor aspects are hardly felt, but if there is only 1 degree between them, they will be felt.

*The Aspects on most charts are sometimes too wide. The one I’m using doesn’t have a function to tighten aspects, but the chart we’re using is simpler to pull up on the website. On astro.com, under “Free Horoscopes, under “Drawings and Calculations”, right under the chart we clicked earlier, there is the “Extended Chart Selection”. With this one, there are setups for a more “extended” chart. There is an “Additional Objects” section at the bottom of the page. Under “Additional Objects”, there is one part that says “_% Reduce/Increase Orbs”. Most astrologers recommend reducing it down to 80%. This chart is more detailed, but may be confusing for you. Above, I explained how you can tell whether your aspect is legit or not even in a chart without this function.*

I hope this article helped make the natal chart a little more understandable. Maybe now, people won’t have such a narrow view of astrology. It’s more involved. Astrology is more than just a horoscope. For many who practice it, it’s a science, and even an art. It can be eye-opening for those who attempt to master it. Many people become more psychologically aware of themselves, aware of the forces at work that influence their lives from birth onward.

Of course, we don’t need astrology to define us or decide our future. However, it has been of assistance for people when self-analysis was needed.

What Does SHE See in YOU? By the signs

22 Oct

Mars Symbol Small

Many of my readers may have remembered my original article on this same topic. Several months ago, I accidentally deleted it. 😦

There’s no sense crying over spilled milk, so I decided to re-write the whole topic. This time it will be a revised version of the original. I plan to add a little more “flair” to the article this time.

Most of you probably know what Zodiac Signs are. Usually when someone asks you, “What’s Your Sign?” People will respond with one of the 12 signs that fall on their birthdays: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, or Pisces.

But did you know that the sign that falls in your birth month isn’t your only sign? The sign most people are familiar with is the Sun sign. The Sun rules over Leo. It’s natural that this “planet” would get more attention than all the others. People even tattoo these signs on their bodies.

If you know all this, and don’t need an explanation, skip to Mars Signs

If you want to know how to find your other signs, and learn more about what a natal chart is, CLICK ME.

The Sun is the central planet in the universe. In astrology, the Sun represents our ego, our pride, our “inner” identity, our basic self. It doesn’t represent who we are totally, but it is our central driving force. It’s our inner core values developed from home, from the person who was in charge of our lives as children. It’s developed from our early childhood living conditions. And it stays within the center of our hearts even as we grow older. When we live life by our sun signs, we feel like somebody in this world. We feel significant. We feel like we’ve made someone proud. We feel content and happy in life, as if life is worth living. This is why the Sun sign is more well-known. To add, it’s easy to find. All you have to know is your birthday.

But have you ever felt that you didn’t really relate too much to your sun sign? Have you felt that there were just some things that were a little off? While most of us would like life to be like our Sun, other things influence who we are. You ever met two people with the same Sun sign that seem a little bit different from each other? I know two Sun in Geminis who generally like to socialize and talk, but their emotional responses are different, their interests are different, and their goals and ambitions are different. To add, they are from two different generations.

This shows us that our other signs are just as important.

Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto signs are all important.

Sun rules over our basic inner drive to be important to ourselves and others. Usually, developed by the Father or lead provider in the home. Women usually look for this from men in long-term relationships, projecting her own idea of a happy lifestyle, expecting a man to make her happy by taking care of her. Still, the Sun isn’t the most important factor in a romantic sense. It may be associated with individual pride, but the Sun is weak in Libra for a reason: It’s hard to think about the ego, or only the self identity, when thinking of partnerships or OTHERS. Venus is the planet most people should observe when thinking of romantic compatibility.

This article will be focusing on Mars signs.

The other planets have meaning and archetypes as well. The Sun sign isn’t the only part of our life.

This article will be focusing on Mars signs.

The Mars symbol looks like this:

Mars symbol

The sign next to this symbol is your Mars sign. So, now that you have your natal chart and your Mars sign, let’s get started.

Mars isn’t particularly the planet of love and romance, like Venus. But it does rule over sex, our actions, our energy, and what we deem as strong or “masculine”. For men, this often reflects his own impressive strengths and abilities, the things he uses to show off and how he approaches a woman. For women it may be the same, but women still expect men to be just as strong as they are, if not stronger! Therefore, women often project their Mars without even realizing it. Women often expect men to take action and initiative even when it comes to asking her out on a date and even proposing for marriage, the same actions she would usually take. She’s drawn to a man who can keep up with her energy and adapt to it. She’s more instantly drawn to men who are exciting and brave before they are attracted to how a man behaves in public or how he treats her, though women eventually realize that’s important as well. They just realize it later on when they are going on a date with a guy. Since women rarely take the initiative in relationships, Mars usually comes in the form of her ideal type. Men may also be attracted to women like this, but may not realize it until way later. Men are not likely to focus on a woman’s impressive strengths or abilities until he’s sexually intimate with her.

Again, Mars is the planet of war, action, energy, aggression, and sex. For a man, it represents his own abilities. It represents how direct he is in situations. It represents his courage. This means everything to his masculinity.

For a woman, it shows her courage as well. But she usually projects this onto men, expecting him to be braver than even she is. This is the man that makes the blood rush to her head. He’s exciting and strong. This is the man she’s sexually attracted to. This is the man she respects. This is the man who breaks her defenses, as many women often tend to have them. Whether she will date him long-term or even marry him is a different story, but with Mars, she’s sexually attracted to him.

Mars is a physical planet. Unlike Venus, it overlooks the superficial and notices the physical actions a person takes. It also shows what physical actions we all are able to take. It represents our energy levels and what motivates us to keep moving or to even start moving. What a person does is often instinctive. A person’s approach can seem exciting or intimidating, depending on how they moved. Someone can act really sweet and have a cute face (Venus), but be a champion boxer (Mars). Someone can look intimidating and mean (Venus), but is often tending a garden or caring for animals (Mars). Someone can act really social at work or at school (Venus), but spends most of their time sleeping (Mars). Our physical activities are ruled by Mars. It also rules over your approach, which means everything you do. It’s not about how you do things (Venus), but literally what you do (Mars).

Venus rules the “label” we have. For instance, with the socialite who sleeps all the time example. Venus may reveal that he is a rebel, but Mars is the physical action he’s usually taking, and that’s sleeping.

Mars is more instinctive than Venus. Women are not likely to relate to it immediately or realize they like these traits in men. But if they observe the men in their lives, they may begin to notice these traits were the very things that drew them to these guys in the first place!

Mars shows a woman’s sex drive and the things she likes to do for fun. Women do love a good challenge as much as the next person. This represents how courageous she would be about expressing her feelings and how quick she’s likely to approach you. It may also show whether she is down for sex, how much sexual energy she has, and any sexual techniques she’s capable of revealing to entice you (once you’ve turned her on, of course). Her Venus signs would represent how she acts when she likes you. But Mars reveals whether she’s brave enough to dive into a relationship with you, whether she’s confident enough to explore her sexual interests, and how she’ll likely show you she’s turned on by you. Mars shows the approach she best feels comfortable with. Her ruling planet influences how this turns out. The ruling planet’s sign will be important in giving more details.

You all know all the signs have a ruling planet, right?

Sun rules over Leo

Moon over Cancer

Mercury over Gemini and Virgo

Venus over Taurus and Libra

Mars over Aries and (traditionally) Scorpio

Jupiter over Sagittarius and (traditionally) Pisces

Saturn over Capricorn and (traditionally) Aquarius

Uranus over Aquarius

Neptune over Pisces

Pluto over Scorpio

Look at the sign Mars is in. Then, look at the ruling planet of that sign and see what sign it’s in. For example, if you have Mars in Leo, look to the Sun. If you’re Sun sign is in Scorpio, your Sun in Scorpio will influence your Mars and color your interests a little more.

Though Mars decides what she’s attracted to in a man, she may not necessarily believe he’s a good boyfriend. She needs to know a man can be a good leader and give her the life she wants to live. Women often don’t feel that a good partner is easy to find. Before getting into a relationship, most women are independent and often care for themselves or have had someone care for them. The hardest thing for women to do is to give up what she thinks is important for a man. Society often expects a man to be the leader in a relationship. Most men don’t feel comfortable letting a woman take the lead. Women sometimes often agree with this. Still, they want the kind of leader they can respect, and often times they would like to have some say-so in the decisions made in a partnership. Everyone has leadership abilities, and women need to know that their values are deemed worthy of respect as well. Women don’t just want a man who is sexy, but also a man who respects her. This would be decided by the SUN SIGNS. If you want to be her long-term boyfriend, observe her Sun sign.

If you want her to marry you, the whole chart must be considered.

Since Mars represents a woman’s ideal type, I thought I’d help the gentlemen out. This can apply to you, too, gentlemen. Mars represents what everyone thinks is hot and sexy, though men may gravitate more to their Venus signs. Women may care more about what a man does and how he acts rather than how a man appears or how charming he is (though women like this, too). Men may equally like what a woman does, true enough, but they care more about how a woman carries herself in public socially than they do about what she “does”.

Still, Venus and Mars are both important in both charts. It’s just Mars is more instant for women.

Basically, for women, Mars is the first step towards “crushing” on a man. Venus is the second step towards “crushing” on a man, but she may not realize it.

Sun is the first step towards committing in a relationship. Moon is the last step towards committing in a relationship, but she may not realize it.

This article will help men get insight as to HOW they can attract a woman they like. But I recommend that you be YOURSELF. You never want to pretend. In the end, it will show whether you TRULY fit her ideal type. Still, it would be useful to know how she views sex and men. Then you can see if it matches up with your views. You don’t have to have the same Mars signs to be compatible. You don’t even have to have the same Mars signs in order for her to “see” her Mars qualities in you. Remember, she’s projecting her own qualities. She may see sides to you that’s attractive to her and they could be coming from all the other planets in your chart. Or even the houses. Or even the aspects! So, you don’t have to have compatible Mars signs in order for her to be attracted to you. This is just what SHE likes in her MIND. This is her “ideal”. How it comes about in person is entirely up to her.

This article can help those who have also been ASKED out. It can show them what she saw in you when she asked you out. That girl that couldn’t stop following you around? That girl clearly makes herself visible whenever you’re around? You may have struck her Mars sign.

For those of you who are Lesbian, Gay, or Bi-sexual, it depends on the planet you identify with. If you identify with your Venus, you will project your Mars more. Therefore, you may be more attracted to a Martian individual. Most Lesbian, Gay, or Bi-Sexual individuals that I know are less likely to project either planet. Most own up to all of their energies instead of expecting others to handle them, which is actually good! For you, you should observe both VENUS and MARS signs. The following could apply to both the male and female gay and lesbian community. Unfortunately, heterosexual women are more than likely to project their own Mars rather than own up to it, causing much confusion for men interested in women. For this article, I used the article “she”, but if you’re a man interested in men or a woman interested in women, you could observe these signs, too.

Even heterosexual men should read this because Mars could even apply to the WOMEN men are interested in on the subconscious level. Many heterosexual men don’t realize it, but these are the things they’re looking for in women as well!

Still, society is harder on all women and their expressions of Mars, whether Homosexual or Heterosexual. This is why I have to cater this to women mostly.

The archetypes presented in this article come from one of my favorite websites: CLICK ME

Again, this article is not for individuals to start pretending they fit these women’s “ideal”. This is so you can get an understanding of HER mind, and see if it really is suited to the kind of person you feel you are. If there are things about her that you KNOW don’t feel like you, then maybe you should let her know what you’re about and see if she’s alright with that. But don’t EVER pretend to be someone you’re not.

Note:

When a planet is at home in a sign, that is the sign it rules. That sign is most like the planet.

When a planet is exalted in a sign, it works easier. This helps the planet gain benefits faster, but maintenance isn’t as efficient as the sign ruled by the planet.

When a planet is in detriment in a sign, that means the sign is totally different from the planet.

When a planet is falling in a sign, it’s hard for the planet to open up. Benefits come slowly, but the outcome could be better than expected.

Mars in Aries

One word description: Honest

These women tend to notice individuals who are direct and honest. If you want her to notice you or to even know if you’re interested, she’s not going to sit around and guess. She’s an outgoing, fast-moving woman and doesn’t usually notice the subtle clues before her. She’s most impressed by someone who’s not afraid of her.

She’s active and energetic, so she needs someone who knows how to have fun around her. Keep her entertained and constantly onto new adventures.

She’s highly drawn to people who stand up to her and confront her. She secretly likes a challenging person, someone who isn’t afraid to be themselves and tell her about herself honestly.

She’ll respect someone who is decisive. She admires people who don’t let anyone boss them around or make them sell-out anything important.

She’s drawn to individuals who are independent. She’s always doing her own thing, and a self-reliant individual is a turn on. The more independent the person is, the more she chases.

They are impressed by someone who is a leader in their own right. She’s often drawn to an individual who takes the initiative or takes the lead whenever they are together, even if the individual is just asking what she wants to do.

She doesn’t always necessarily care if the individual is daring, but they should never be afraid to be themselves. She has a lot of courage, and often likes to try new things, so she’s drawn to individuals who are down for anything. The person she wants will push her to be more courageous and independent.

It would probably help to eat a lot of vitamins around her. She’s always moving. If you can’t move along with her, she’ll pass you up! Some of these women are attracted to active and athletic types, but most just want someone who is forward.

This women may like a man who is a little rugged or alpha.

Sexually, she’s motivated by someone who is a challenge or someone who is up to the challenge. These women don’t want to be an easy catch. They need a man who is brave and confident, willing to fight for them. Make a move, communicate, and take control. She needs to be the focus of his attention the whole time. She needs a man to actually motivate her to action. She has to be in charge of what happens, so she will have sex when SHE wants to. A partner who has high standards may motivate her to break their defenses. She may need someone who is willing to break down her defenses. She may also need someone who is fun and energetic. They don’t want sex to be too complicated. They just need someone who gets straight to the point. These women may secretly be aroused by dominant, even angry, partners. She sees sex as a challenge. She’s a prize that must be won through hard work and dedication.

If she said yes to your offer to take her out sometime, then you’ve probably approached her as if you were fearless. She definitely thought you were confident and didn’t sense any fear from you. You are more than likely someone who believes in being yourself. You seemed fun and exciting, and she liked that.

How do I know she wants me? She will follow you around. She’s not really a stalker, but when she’s decided that she wants to see you, she will. Wherever you go, she will want to go. She will try to fall in step with you.

TURN OFF: Anyone who stops her from being herself. Anyone who can’t decide who or what they want. Someone who asks too many different women out on dates. Someone who is too up-tight and judgmental.

Mars is at home in this sign. So your initial approach is the best one. Just come right up to her and tell her you like her, and that’s it. Offer to do something fun and exciting. She’s much simpler than most women. She won’t require much until she’s ready to commit.

Female Celebrities: Angelina Jolie,  Aishwarya Rai,  Tyra Banks, Emma Stone, Kourtney Kardashian, Vanessa Hudgens, Kate Hudson, Kate Beckinsale,  Iggy Azalea, Hayley Williams, Lauryn Hill, Mel B (Spice Girls), Geri Halliwell (Spice Girls)

Kpop idols: Song “Victoria” Qian (f(x)), Hyuna (Wonder Girls, 4Minute), Eunjung (T-ara), Areum (T-ara), Yubin (Wonder Girls), Lee Hyori (Fin KL),  Solji (EXID)

Mars is a planet that represents young men. Visual archetypes of the Mars in Aries “ideal” can be seen below:

Mars in Taurus

One word description: Patient

These women are strong-willed, slow-moving, and down-to-earth. Slow and steady wins the race for them. This is why Mars is in detriment in this sign. The more time you spend with them, the more they will notice you. These women are not easy to impress. Everything takes time with them. It may even take more than one try to ask them out. Persistence is key.

What’s even more attractive to them is someone who takes their time to get to know them. It would be better to ask them out once you feel like you REALLY know them. They often feel insecure when people ask them out without being friends with them first. They are likely to agree to date someone they’ve known for a long time. In this sense, they are really attracted to patient, cool-headed individuals, who don’t mind taking their time getting in a relationship.

Even within a relationship, they want to take it easy. Changes are threatening to them. They are really drawn to people who are understanding and easily let go of disappointments, since it takes so much time for them to even get to one new stage in their relationships. They are drawn to people who make them feel secure and at ease.

Many of these women are attracted to the “bad boy/bad girl” types. They tend to be drawn to individuals who are generally cool and strong, and most “bad” types tend to have these qualities. It’s not that they literally like drama. They just like to feel protected and secure. They may mostly be drawn to someone who looks tough on the outside, but who is a real teddy bear within.

They tend to want the individuals that anyone could want. They are attracted to people they feel will care for them.

Physical things are very important to them, so the physical senses need to be stimulated. This includes appearance, smell, touch, and sound.  Venus will influence this. They’ll be looking for an individual who has some understanding of their social standing in the world as women. Buying things for her or doing nice things for her is sure to impress her.

But most important is the physical presence of someone. You could be broke, but what they really want above all else is for someone to be around them, spending time with them, being there for them when they need love. The more time you physically spend with them, the more you grow on them. After awhile, they wouldn’t be able to see their life without you.

These women like to chill and relax, so she’s attracted to someone who is pleasant to be around. When you take her out, offer to do something pleasant. She has to be attracted to the individual who asks her out. If she’s not, it’s never going to happen. Charm works every time. The more persuasive a man is with the physical senses, the easier it will be to convince her to choose you. Again, these women are very insecure with men, so a patient man can last longer, someone who won’t give up.

Stability is also a key thing.

Sexually, she’s motivated by all the physical senses: Touch, smell, taste, sound, visual. Take your time. She doesn’t want someone who rushes into sex. She wants to feel that the person she’s with is really in love with her first and will be loyal. She wants to take it all in. Don’t come at her too strong. It will make her feel threatened. She will be impressed by someone else’s sexuality if she feels the ultimate pleasure from them. She sees sex as a way to make love to her partners.

If she said yes to your offer, lucky you! You’ve finally broken the stubborn wall! You’ve proven that you really like her and she’s ready to finally move to the first stage: dating. Things may still get off to a slow start, but she’s at least now willing to give you a chance, of all the people out here. You must be one smooth fox! You seemed like someone she could trust and someone she feels comfortable around.

How do I know she wants me? These women are not direct; they take their time approaching the people they want. Sometimes, they never approach the one they really want. But when you come around, she won’t help but smile. She may be quite physical. She may grab your arm, give you hugs, and spend a lot of time around you. She may get jealous when she sees you around someone else. Then she will really make sure she’s physically present around you, as well as looking her best.

TURN OFF: Pushy individuals. Individuals who are argumentative. People who make them feel unattractive.

These women really do need to feel secure, so having something in common with them or having certain charms makes it easier. What do you two have in common? Do you really love them? How can you make them feel comfortable? Venus plays a major role for them. These women tend to be looking for men who really understand what they like. She may often want a man who is on the same page as she is.

This sign is ruled by Venus. Venus is the planet of love, beauty, pleasure, and affection. Read the Mars sign that best fits your Venus sign and see if it feels more familiar to you. For instance, if your Venus is in Gemini, you can read Mars in Gemini.

Venus can be in any of the 12 signs while Mars is in Taurus.

Mars in Gemini

One word description: Interesting

If you want these women to notice how you feel, you need to communicate. These women don’t mind guessing games if you leave out-right leave clues, but they are usually moving around from place to place so much, they don’t usually notice anything subtle.

These women are drawn to people who can stimulate their minds as well as their bodies. They get bored easily. They are drawn to fun, exciting, and interesting individuals. They are always on the move, so if you want to win their hearts, your approach must be smooth, interesting, and flirtatious. They want to see how sharp and quick-witted you are. Generally, they talk a lot and be pretty brash in their speech.

They want to try new things, so they will be interested in people who seem to have a busy agenda and interesting hobbies or skills, as well as an array of associates. Some independence is also a redeeming quality. They also tend to gravitate towards individuals who show an interest in their favorite hobbies or in their friends.

Someone who asks questions and tries to understand their mind is very appealing. Communicate with them everyday because they lose interest as soon as you forget about them. You really have to keep these women interested. Proposing some new activity every time you ask them on a date would really make them say yes every time. They are open-minded, so they generally want someone who’s down for anything without being judgmental. Of course, this depends on their Mercury signs.

Sexually, dirty talk, erotic notes or literature or visuals, as well as tempting her curiosity motivates her. You must promise a fun time. She wants someone who approaches sex like a game. Pull out all your tricks, something she’s never tried before. This will impress her. She’s generally open-minded. Still, the mind has to be stimulated before there is any body interaction. She sees sex as a fun and social activity.

If this woman agreed to go out with you, you must be really interesting, clever, and smooth enough to keep her attention. That’s quite the challenge. You must have some amazing skills with words and body language.

How do I know she wants me? She will communicate. She can be flirty. She’s not the type to seem desperate, so she won’t be everywhere you are. She’ll try to fall in step with you at social events of some sort and strike up a conversation. She tends to flirt. She will also carry her tone of voice in a way that shows she wants you. She might offer to do something with you or invite you someplace fun.

TURN OFF: Anyone who isn’t easy to talk to. Anyone who seems like they have nothing to add to a conversation. Liars. People who are too interested in themselves.

These women do think conversation and the mind is important when choosing to go out with someone. Mercury signs would influence this. What do you talk about? Where is your mind? What do you find interesting?

This sign is ruled by Mercury. Mercury rules over the mind, how we communicate, how we think, how we process information. Read the Mars sign that best fits your Mercury sign and see if it feels more familiar to you. For instance, if you have Mercury in Cancer, read Mars in Cancer.

Mercury can be in any of the 12 signs while Mars is in Gemini.

Mars in Cancer

One word description: Caring

Mars is typically considered falling in this sign. These women generally don’t choose the guys with the “phony glitz and glam” approach. She rarely chooses the individual that’s trying to get her utmost attention. She’s impressed by the individuals who keep it cool and sweet.

She may choose the person that takes the time out to get to know her, someone who shares their personal, intimate secrets with her. She will mostly notice someone who is thoughtful in their approach. They tend to be drawn to people who are caring and memorable.

They are very defensive. Someone would literally have to ease their way into her heart. The approach has to be subtle rather than bold.

Family is important to them. They are protective of the ones they care about. An individual who cares about the same people they care about is very appealing to them.

They really like strong, protective individuals.

Be honest with your feelings. These women are emotionally expressive, even explosive, and they generally are drawn to people who are not afraid of emotions or afraid of commitment. The person she’s drawn to will be very understanding. She has strong, powerful moods and a need to dominate. She needs someone who allows her to be herself and express herself. She’s often drawn to individuals who understand women. It’s important that someone she’s interested in has an open-minded view of women.

Introducing her to relatives will make her feel secure, like she’s a part of your life. She is quite moody and often feels insecure. She needs someone who will make her feel safe. Her Moon sign will reveal some of her insecurities and needs.

These women tend to draw to people who are there when they need them most. She wants someone who remembers all the things that are most important to her. An individual who goes out of their way to cook for her or make heartfelt gifts will definitely win her heart. She’ll choose the man that pampers her. They often expect people to intuit their needs and fulfill them. These women often follow their gut instincts when choosing partners. They have to feel that something is good about you, and this can be hard to predict. Just follow your own instincts.

Sexually, cuddling and her own emotional moods motivate her. If she’s feeling good that day, she will more than likely feel up to it. If she’s not, don’t even ask. She’ll let you know if she’s in the mood. It will impress her if the person knows how to be hard as well as soft in the bedroom. They will also be impressed if an individual can intuit their needs. She mostly has sex with those who have proven they love her and are ready to commit to her. A gentle approach works better than an aggressive one. She mostly wants someone who approaches sex in an adaptable way, according to her needs. She sees sex as a way to confirm feelings of love.

If she chose you out of all the guys out there, you’ve definitely got someone who is hard to obtain. These women usually have their defenses up. You must’ve melted that shell and opened her up! Good for you! You must seem like an honest, caring person.

How do I know she wants me? You won’t know if you’re looking for obvious clues. She’s shy. She will be indirect. Mostly, she will give you little gifts on the most important days. She will become very shy around the one she wants. She may give you hugs if she’s brave enough. She will get jealous around any other woman you’re with and may explode emotionally suddenly. Don’t take this the wrong way. It just means she wants you to be hers.

TURN OFF: Inconsiderate, insensitive, thoughtless individuals. Show-offs. People only interested in her body and not her soul. Individuals who treat women like objects. Bad vibes.

For these women, a considerate, thoughtful person must make them feel secure and safe. The Moon signs reveal the insecurities that need to be protected.

This sign is ruled by the Moon. The Moon rules over the emotions, our needs, our insecurities, our home, our nurturing. It also shows how we care and how we want to be cared for. Read the Mars sign that best fits your Moon sign and see if it feels more familiar to you. For instance, if your Moon is in Leo, read Mars in Leo.

Female celebrities: Miley Cyrus, Lana Del Rey, Penelope Cruz, Audrey Hepburn, Halle Berry, Pink, Marie Antoinette, Reese Witherspoon, Alanis Morissette,  Vivien Leigh, Natalie Wood, Julianne Moore, Dolly Parton,  Cheryl Cole,  Zendaya Coleman, Cyndi Lauper, Diane Keaton, Jamie Lynn Spears, Victoria Justice, Megan Good, Dolly Parton, Kelis, Dolly Parton, Pink, Tinashe, Halsey, Cardi B

Mars in Leo

One word description: Impressive

These women, honestly, only notice the most noticeable person in the room. Honestly, they don’t recognize anyone shy. They can’t read subtle clues and actually subtle clues bore them. If you approach them, you’d best come with your best performance. They want to be asked out the way anyone would ask an important figure, like a Queen, out. They want to be treated like royalty. If you approach them, it must be done in a tasteful, romantic, emotionally moving way, possibly in front of other individuals, especially potential admirers. Basically, it has to seem like you’re proposing to them, even if it’s just asking them out on a simple date. Be creative. They want a partner that’s willing to put forth a lot of effort.

These women tend to be impressed by the popular life, and so they may fall easily for the movie or music star. They love the school and/or work idols. Rich people, major athlete, or accomplished individuals are already impressive to these women. Even more so if these individuals are attractive. But if someone is sweet, generous, and treats them like royalty, that’s even better than some rich attractive person! If you really want their attention, you must give them attention. She can be hard to get, but with confidence and persistence as well as genuine interest, her heart can be won. She wants to see who can handle the heat. The key is always confidence. She wants someone she can be proud of, someone she can show off. Of course, their Sun signs will influence what they feel is worth being proud over.

They are drawn to generous, affectionate, and FAITHFUL people. They want to feel special in a person’s life.

They also are drawn to someone fun, outgoing, and a little adventurous. You have to entertain them.

They usually want their partners to be able to take the lead (even though they are capable of doing so). They are already rather dominant and independent. They need a partner who can do more than they can.

Sexually, a nice romantic night, plenty of flattery, and letting them take the lead will motivate her. Of course, it will impress her when the person she’s interested in is confident and knows how to please. She’s a dominant woman, so don’t force yourself onto her. Let her decide what she wants. If she’s not feeling the atmosphere, she will not agree to have sex. Be confident, but eager to please. Make her feel like a queen. She wants someone who approaches sex in a romantic way. She wants a partner to show her how much he loves her. She sees sex as a pleasurable activity between lovers. She may see sex as a chance to prove her worth as a woman.

If she chose you, you must have been one amazing, impressive, and confident person. It isn’t easy to win her heart, so you got lucky!

How do I know she wants me? She’s not going to beg for you, but she will try to be seen. She’s going to find a way to fall in step with you. She will show off a lot to seem impressive and important.

TURN OFF: Anyone who seems girl-crazy. Anyone who treats them as inferior as a woman. Boring individuals who don’t know how to laugh or have a good time. Selfish individuals.

These women want to be proud of whoever is trying to impress them. They want someone who has the same core values that they do. The Sun signs mean something to them.

This sign is ruled by the Sun. The Sun rules the identity, the ego, pride, the will, vitality, and the creative drive that creates the individual. It also represents our inner core values developed in our childhood. It rules over the husband. Generally, most Mars in Leo women are looking for a husband figure right away. Read the Mars sign that best fits your Sun sign and see if it feels more familiar to you. For instance, if your Sun is in Virgo, read Mars in Virgo.

Female celebrities: Beyonce Knowles, Jodie Foster, Monica Bellucci, Brigitte Bardot, Demi Moore, Amy Winehouse,  Mila Kunis, Salma Hayek, Sophia Loren, Cher, Nicole Richie, Mystic Meg, Serena Williams, Sophia Vergara, Sigourney Weaver, Miranda Cosgrove, Mya

Mars in Virgo

One-word description: Attentive

These women may notice two types of individuals. First, some are pickier than others. Some of these women may choose someone with the good job, stable mental and financial life, and someone who lives a very productive life.

These women may also like someone who can teach them a few things. They have a hidden curiosity about life. They may like intelligent individuals.

Some of the other Mars in Virgo women, however, may be drawn to someone that “needs” them, sometimes drawing themselves to rogue rebels that need to be “fixed”. They must be careful not to be attracted to people that are no good for them.

They sometimes want to get away from their mundane and critical world. Their polar opposite might be appealing to them because these individuals make them forget their stresses. They might fight between going to work or ditching work to hang out with a love interest. Thus, they might be drawn to individuals who are a little free-spirited.

Regardless, these women will take the humble over the loud and brash. They generally like to be approached in a cool and natural manner. They like people who are smart and down-to-earth. Clearly communicate to them what it is you want.

These women like when someone makes themselves useful in their lives. They are sort of looking for an asset. This person has to take care of them. These women have a lot of stress in their lives. They are looking for someone who can come to the rescue and help them when they need it.

They are also looking for someone who recognizes the little things about them. Compliments about their new hairstyle, or newly done nails, or even on some project they’ve worked on that’s gone unnoticed would draw them in. They really do like attentive individuals. Especially pay attention to them when they speak. They like a listening ear.

Sexually, these women are more motivated when they know they are with someone who knows what they’re doing. They love dirty talk. Someone who is hands-on and is eager to please will get them started. She will be impressed with someone who is attentive to all of her erogenous zones. Move in a natural way and don’t do anything weird (unless you’ve asked her first).

She’s easily turned off by pushy individuals. The setting has to be right in order for them to want sex. A massage or a bubble bath will relax them. They want someone who approaches sex in a detail-oriented way, as if they are hard at work. They must be observant and work hard to make the experience pleasant. They see sex as a healthy activity and a way to release tension.

As sexy as they are, they are modest in many ways. Either they wait until marriage to have sex or they have an innocent nature in the bedroom, something about them may seem a bit naive, shy, and humble. They aren’t hesitant to state their inhibitions.

Basically, they can make sexuality innocent and they can make innocence sexy.

If she chose you, you have one of the most helpful and supportive women on the planet. She will be there when you need her most. You have a dime, but that could be because you seem very valuable yourself. Keep doing what you’re doing!

How do I know she wants me? This woman will be there for you when you need her most. She does little things, like run errands for you, to show she wants you. She will go out of her way and offer to do things for you that she wouldn’t do for anyone else. She gives compliments and pays attention to little details about you. She may get you something you’ve been wanting.

TURN OFF: Anyone aggressive towards them or abusive. Anyone who doesn’t communicate clearly what they want. Liars. Someone who doesn’t appreciate the things they do for them. Anyone who seems unusual or mentally unstable.

Of course, again, these women want someone who is attentive. This means there are certain things she’s hoping an individual will pay attention to. This means she wants to see how you think and whether you’re on the same page. She’s a very subtle person. How smart are you? Can you catch on? Her Mercury sign will play a role.

This sign is ruled by Mercury. Mercury is the planet of communication, how we think, how we understand and process information, when and how we speak, and what we speak about. Read the Mars sign that best fits your Mercury sign and see if it feels more familiar to you. For instance, if your Mercury is in Libra, read Mars in Libra.

Female celebrities: Britney Spears, Princess Diana, Cameron Diaz, Mother Teresa, Nicole Scherzinger, Gwyneth Paltrow,  Ariana Grande, Hilary Duff, Zooey Deschanel, Sarah Jessica Parker, Eva Green, Joan of Arc, Melanie Griffith, Christina Ricci, Ciara, Amy Lee, Naomi Watts, Hayden Panettiere, Brooke Shields, Joan Rivers, Hilary Swank, Lorde, Michelle Rodriguez, Amy Adams, Raquel Welch, Zoe Saldana, Amber Rose, Grace Jones, Elizabeth Gillies

Mars in Libra

One word description: Balanced

These women are a little complicated. They tend to notice individuals who are generally physically attractive and well-dressed.

If you approach them, it must be done with charm. Strike up an interesting conversation. They notice the individuals who are polite, romantic, sweet, thoughtful, and sensual. They are drawn to individuals who just seem to have a way with women. They are drawn to individuals with a sense of class, those who seem partner-oriented.

Yet, they also tend to like dominant, macho types. They really do want someone to take the lead because they really hate having to make all the decisions. It stresses them out. They sort of like someone taking control. Still, they don’t want to be pushed around or aggressively handled. Even assertive people make them uneasy if it’s directed towards them, though they need someone who is more assertive.

Why the complication? Mars is in detriment in Libra. It isn’t easy for these women to find the perfect balance in a partner. It may seem like all the people who approach them never seem to be good enough. It’s really because they are extremely picky. They want the ideal partner.

They tend to appreciate an individual when they’re gone. When you give them some space, they will often miss the presence of someone who has been there for them. Space gives them perspective as to what they really want. Though they hate being alone, often times they need to be, just to figure out what it is they truly want.

They want someone that won’t embarrass them socially and will still treat them well. They love luxuries, so they tend to be drawn to individuals with a bit of money. Most of the people they fall for seem to have stepped out of a romance novel.

They want someone that compliments them. They want their partners to make up for their weaknesses. In this case, they always seem to attract people who are completely opposite. This frustrates them because they also want someone they can do everything with. This means they have to have something in common with them, which is decided by the Venus signs. So how can the two be merged? When it comes to handling business and external affairs, they want someone who is assertive and takes the lead. They want someone active who can pay all the bills the easy-going Mars in Libra woman doesn’t want to pay. But when it comes to how they treat her, she wants to be romanced and treated like the finest, most important lady in town. Overall, anyone who approaches her must show that they can be balanced.

She has an active social life and wants someone she can bring to parties and other social events.

Despite her desire for a good partner, she really can’t imagine being alone the rest of her life. She should be careful just settling with any partner just to have one.

Sexually, she wants someone who can take the lead, but the setting has to be romantic. She needs someone to take action, but wants someone who is considerate of every move he makes. She will want her partner’s thoughts to be on her interests and needs. If you’re sure about what you’re doing, she will be more motivated. Still, she must know that you love her. Sensual pleasures make it easier for her to dive in. Anyone who knows how to please her and turn her on will impress her. She’s nice and reasonable. The right persuasive words could make her open to it. But it’s hard for her to feel ultimate pleasure if the timing isn’t right. She sees sex as a way to show how much she loves her partner and a chance for her partner to show their love as well.

If she chose you, that’s impressive. It’s hard for her to choose just one person, considering she has many options and also doesn’t want to make a mistake by choosing the wrong partner.

How do I know she wants me? This is tricky. She’s generally indecisive. She has many potential suitors. So even though she may think she wants you, chances are she’s thinking about other people she may want as well. This makes her rather passive-aggressive. She flirts with individuals that she wants. She spends a lot of time with them and gets them thoughtful gifts.

TURN OFF: Not being treated fairly or equally. Not being considered in plans. Anyone without good public decorum, i.e. good manners. Anyone selfish.

This woman is looking for someone who either has something in common with her or is willing to consider her interests and at least give them a chance. She’s looking to see if the individual is someone she can cooperate with. Venus plays a role in that.

This sign is ruled by Venus. Venus is the planet of love, peace, beauty, pleasure, attraction, and charm. It rules over our style and tastes, as well as how we show we love something. Read the Mars sign that best fits your Venus sign and see if it feels more familiar to you. For instance, if your Venus is in Scorpio, read Mars in Scorpio.

Mars in Scorpio

One word description: Magnetic

Mars is the co-ruler of Scorpio and so feels at home in this passionate and destructive sign. What does that mean for these women? They are drawn to those rebels, no doubt about it. Many of the people they like are trouble. But for some reason, they are drawn to them. It’s because these women are passionate and crave intense experiences. Mars is their ruler after all. They have an urge to live life to the fullest, which leaves them living life on the edge.

You can’t buy their love. The flash and dash does not impress them. You need to have a lot more than that. There needs to be something deep down in your spirit, your aura, that draws these ladies to you.

If any man approaches them, they are looking for someone with an edge and/or magnetism about them. The approach has to be passionate and charismatic. Basically, you have to have a natural chemistry with them. If you don’t, too bad. It’s never going to happen. These women are all or nothing. They either feel an instant attraction to you or they feel dead around you.

These women are consumed with whoever they want. Once their minds are on you, it seems as if they forget about everyone else around them. Thus, they are drawn to very seductive, unforgettable individuals. If you approach them, there has to be an air of mystery and swag about you. They like strength, a measure of confidence, but also a vulnerable side.

They are also attracted to individuals who are powerful, self-reliant, and hard to obtain.

These women are passionate, so they are looking for someone who has the same passion that they do. They want someone that wants all of them, and only them, or they won’t keep you at all. They might test men to see if they are worthy. They are known for their ultimatums.

They are quiet about their affairs. They are drawn to people that are quiet. If you do want to ask them out, do it at a quiet time, when no one is around. Do it in a quiet, subtle way. Leaving notes is better than shouting for all the world to see…unless you convince her that this loud display was to show how much you want her. Even then, she would’ve preferred a less embarrassing approach. Quiet doesn’t necessarily mean boring though. Make dates and proposals interesting and thoughtful.

Regardless, she often wants to feel like her life has changed forever with whoever she gets with. She wants someone who makes life feel way more meaningful than her life is feeling right now. She tends to be drawn to people who seem to have an exciting life as a result. But she also might be drawn to a man with depth and intelligence. Wisdom and intuition are valuable qualities in a partner in her eyes.

As much as she loses herself in a love interest, she still needs a measure of control in every affair. She won’t just get with just any dude that’s interested and it takes a lot to break down her defenses. The love interest would need to be persistent and perceptive to understand all of her inner layers.

She secretly wants to be free of her own pain, so she’s looking for someone who helps her heal from past traumas. Of course, some of these transforming energies are thanks to their other ruler, Pluto.

Sexually, if it isn’t your all, it will be nothing to her. She’s not the type to beat around the bush. If she wants you, she wants all of you and nothing less. She will be more motivated to have sex if she feels in control. Sex transforms her for life. She feels she is making a huge sacrifice when she has sex with someone; she’s losing her power. She will be impressed if the person she is with puts his everything into it and shows her it was not all for nothing. She may be drawn to someone who is challenging and puts up barriers. She needs to know that the partner is hers and hers alone before she jumps in. She wants someone who approaches sex like it’s the final time they will experience it. It must be a life-altering experience for her partner. If she senses that her partner has a more shallow view of sex, she will not be interested in having sex with the person.

If she chose you, you must have that rebel, mysterious aura. You’re one sexy fox, almost like a seductive vampire ready to take her blood. She won’t get enough of you and everyone else can’t get enough of you either.

How do I know she wants me? She’ll follow you around, investigate everything about you until she finds you. But you may not know this. She will find a way to be next to you. You won’t have to guess whether this girl wants you. You’ll know it.  So if you’re asking this question, she doesn’t want you right now.

TURN OFF: Individuals who are show-offs. Individuals that are too superficial and who seem to be one of those “women shoppers”. Those with phony charm (they can tell when it’s natural and when it’s insincere). People who talk too much.

This sign is ruled by Mars. For some of them, your first impression sticks with them. They usually don’t need to see anything more. But if you want to make an extra impact…

These women are hoping to feel some complete change in their lives. They want to feel this powerful urge to want all from an individual. Pluto signs will reveal these powerful urges.

This sign is co-ruled by Pluto. Pluto is the planet of power, self-empowerment, transformation, and healing. It is deep, psychological, and intense. It reveals everything we want to use to fight against a powerless will, and everything we sacrifice or destroy in the process.

Pluto is a generational planet. It can last in a sign much longer than most planets. It can last from 10 to 13 or more years in one sign! It affects complete generations of people. It’s quite the powerful planet.Read the Mars sign that best fits your Pluto sign and see if it feels more familiar to you. For instance, if your Pluto is in Sagittarius, read Mars in Sagittarius.

Mars in Sagittarius

One word description: Bold

If you approach these women, just be honest. Don’t beat around the bush. Be straight-forward and confident. They are drawn to optimistic, confident people. They are likely to notice someone who has the guts to follow their heart.

These individuals are adventurers and are likely to be impressed by those that live a fast-track life.

They have certain moral beliefs that keep them moving every day. Their religious beliefs might influence their choices in partners. They may want someone who shares the same spiritual, philosophical, or religious beliefs. They are drawn to individuals that look at the best of life. They are looking at people who believe in something greater than themselves. Jupiter signs will influence this.

They tend to want to experience all that life has to offer, so they may be drawn to those who travel for a living. They are drawn to foreigners. They like to experience new things and like individuals who aren’t afraid to try something new. They are pretty knowledgeable about the world and are drawn to individuals who seem broad-minded. They are often drawn to teachers of some sort because they want to learn something from their partners. They are tolerant of different ethnic groups, so they generally choose people they know will accept their background and other backgrounds.

These individuals need their freedom. They need space to roam. Thus, they are likely to notice someone who seems a little rugged or rebellious. These ladies are outgoing so they aren’t interested in staying at home and cuddling. They are drawn to active people. They are looking for a guy who wants to have fun.

These women are achievement-oriented. They always have goals. They are drawn to men who have a bright view of the future and are working towards broad goals. It’s even more attractive when the people they’re interested in have achieved a lot of their goals. Achievements are a turn-on. A plus is if this individual offers to help this woman achieve some of her own goals.

Sexually, they want someone who approaches it like a sport. Make it sound like a lot of fun. Just the idea of trying something new is enough to motivate them, but there must be no strings attached. They don’t like the idea of having children, neither do they like the idea of jealous, possessive partners. They are impressed by someone who has the guts to do it anywhere and pull something different out every time. They see sex as a new experience.

If she chose you, she probably definitely notices that there’s something different about you. She senses that she’s going to have a good time with you. You must have shown that you were confident and open-minded.

TURN OFF: Judgmental types. Anyone who is mundane or usual. Closed-minded individuals. Those who have nothing meaningful to talk about.

These women have strong principles that they live by. Their beliefs keep them moving in life. This faith is the reason they are so confident and so optimistic. It’s important that no one brings them down. Jupiter signs come into play here.

This sign is ruled by Jupiter. Jupiter is the planet of luck, faith, expansion, and beliefs. This is a social planet. It can last within one sign for about one year. Read the Mars sign that best fits your Jupiter sign and see if it feels more familiar to you. For instance, if your Jupiter is in Capricorn, read Mars in Capricorn.

Mars in Capricorn

One word description: Respectful

Mars is exalted in this sign. Let’s just break it down as to why. If you want to impress these women, you have to step up whatever game you have one notch. They are a challenge and they want someone who is also a challenge. For them, many suitors can approach them. Not all of them are right. Many have a long way to go to get on their level. What makes you any different?

They are ambitious, goal-oriented, focused individuals. They don’t have time to waste on pettiness. They are serious about any commitments they make. They are hard to impress and hard to distract. If you want to catch their attention, your approach must be cool, collected, and mature.

They are drawn to individuals who have their own goals.

They really respect people who have a measure of self-control. Keep your hands to yourself and ask for permission before you step over boundaries.

Though they may like partying like anyone, nothing earns their respect more than a person who knows when to stop drinking, when to go home, and when they’ve had too much and shouldn’t drive. These women want someone who can make responsible decisions, especially if they’re taking her out. She wants to feel safe and secure, like her life is important to the person taking her on a date. Is that too much to ask? Not really, if you’re a mature individual. Because of this, she’s usually attracted to individuals who are older than she is.

Timing is another important thing. When you ask them out, it has to be at the right time. When their finances are not in order, they are not likely to agree to go out on dates, even if you’re the one paying. They don’t chance it. If they are at work, they don’t want to be asked out over the phone while doing something important. They don’t mind letters and notes as long as they are well thought-out. They also believe in people being on time. If you want them, you must always be on time for dates.

Patience is also important. Everything takes time with them. The more you push, the faster you push them away. They do expect to be treated with respect. Good manners go a long way with these women. They think highly of themselves and believe respect is earned. It is no wonder Mars is exalted in this position. Saturn will give you clues as the kind of respect they want. The planet Saturn reveals what’s most important to them. Be honest, be straight-forward, be cool, be casual. Plan things well. Make plans with her. Ask once, then play the waiting game to see if she replies.

Sexually, they must know that they are secure to even feel motivated. They are fully in control of their bodies. When they want it, they are full throttle. When they don’t, the answer is no. They won’t have sex with a partner that has slept around with the world, someone with too many children, someone who is not prepared for the consequences. They don’t have time to play games. They are not the types to have sex with someone on the first date unless you are something extremely special. If you are the type to want that, move along. It impresses them when they have a sexual partner that knows what they’re doing. It’s even more impressive to be with someone that can get them to have sex with them. They prefer their partners to approach sex with caution and seriousness. They want someone who is mature about sex.

If she chose you, congratulations! Yes, you’ve definitely graduated from being ‘everybody else’ to someone special in her eyes. You must seem like something amazing.

How do I know she wants me? She is ambitious about what she wants and treats it like any goal she has. She plans her moves carefully and tries to find the right time to approach you. Once she does, she will try to be honest. She is actually a bit shy about asking others out, despite her appearance. But she’ll try to remain serious and calm about it. It may seem a little rehearsed, but more than likely she’s really been trying to ask for a long time. She takes her time making one move.

TURN OFF: People who are late for appointments. People with too much baggage and too much drama. People who move too fast in relationships. Irresponsible individuals.

Again, these women have to feel respected. There are certain things that are important to them. If you do anything, don’t screw with this side of them. Saturn rules over this limitation. They have boundaries and limitations. Don’t get too personal and don’t try to get too intimate with them too soon. They will drop you like they never met you.

This sign is ruled by Saturn. Saturn is the planet of limitations, boundaries, rules, law, and restrictions. It also rules over time and wisdom.

Saturn is a social planet, therefore it can be within one sign for about two years. One peer group could have the same Saturn sign. Read the Mars sign that best fits your Saturn sign and see if it feels more familiar to you. For instance, if your Saturn is in Aquarius, read Mars in Aquarius.

Mars in Aquarius

One word description: Shocking

These women are generally difficult to impress. This isn’t because they are particularly demanding. This is because they have seen and heard it all. They are highly intelligent and knowledgeable. They are looking to be surprised. Just try something different. The good part is the more you screw up, the more they like it! Make them laugh! Be as nerdy and dorky as you want to be. That’s exactly what these women like. They are looking for someone to blow all of the other suitors out of the water with something so random and spontaneous, it is unforgettable.

These women value their freedom and independence more than all the other women. They are looking for independent, freedom-loving individuals to approach them. They are resistant to suitors if they feel their freedom will be taken by getting in a relationship. They also must know that things won’t change for them. Saturn plays a part in this.

They are full of many ideas that they want to put out in the world and they do want to be respected for them. It helps to have someone who understands their out of the box ideas. They do need to know that they can maintain some independence, so they need to know they can maintain their security needed to keep their independence.

They tend to be progressive in many ways. Even if they have conservative values, most of them tend to do something that deviates from the norm. Many of them have their own jobs, cars, homes, and goals. They like to be around other progressive individuals.

They might be drawn to people you would never expect them to. They generally like to try new things and they never box in their options. In fact, they would prefer their love interest to be as different as possible.

Sometimes these individuals disappear so they can involve themselves with whatever projects they want. They even disappear from the people they’re in a relationship with. When they come back, they like things to pick up like they never left. This is the kind of freedom they need.

They also generally fall rather easily for their friends. If a really good friend asks them out, they won’t be able to turn it down. Friendship is important to these individuals.

They also appreciate honesty. They are pretty outspoken, so they appreciate someone who randomly tells them they like them, too. These women are progressive, so they are turned off by individuals who think they should live by norms. They are looking for someone with an open mind. Uranus plays a role in this.

Sexually, they are more motivated if you get their minds on it. Their minds have to think about it. They like to experiment, so it will be enticing if you offer to try sex in a whole different way, like sexting. They must know that there won’t be any strings attached, that it will be a fun experience without all the emotional drama that can come with it. They are open people, so they don’t mind threesomes or something like that. They want someone who approaches sex like an experiment or friendly activity. They don’t want someone who takes it too seriously.

If she chose you, well you’re in for a treat! You must have seemed really cool if she chose you. They feel that they can be in a relationship with you without all the drama. How you ever convinced them of that is beyond understanding because they see all relationships as stifling.

How do I know she wants me? She’s too cool to admit she wants you. She’s not going to beg. She may wrestle herself before finally admitting she’s interested. Otherwise, she’s pretty straight-forward. When she does tell you, it may not be at the most expected moment, but it will be said swiftly and to the point. They tend to try to form friendships with people they are interested in. So if you want to know if she wants you, just look at that girl to the right or left of you and ask. Pulling random tricks, as well as some sexual courage, impresses them tremendously, which is hard to do.

TURN OFF: Emotional, clingy types. Jealous types. Drama. Baggage, like you having kids she doesn’t know about. Cold-hearted, intolerant, and prejudiced individuals.

These individuals do think differently from most women. Uranus comes into play.

This sign is ruled by Uranus. Uranus is the planet of freedom, the unexpected, the unusual. It allows us to move into the future with our progressive ideas.

Uranus is a generational planet. Uranus stays within one sign for about seven years, so it affects one whole generation.

These women also need to maintain certain security, the security that they feel keeps them free. In this world, no one is truly extremely free. We all need a base that keeps our life in order in order to be able to explore other parts of life. Saturn also influences them in this way.

Saturn is the planet of boundaries, limitations, and law. It’s a social planet and can stay within one sign for about two years.

Read the Mars sign that best fits your Uranus and Saturn sign and see if it feels more familiar to you. For instance, if your Uranus or Saturn is in Pisces, read Mars in Pisces.

Mars in Pisces

One word description: Humble

One thing to know about these women: the quieter you are, the better. The fine, fancy, showy displays do not impress them at all. In fact, they withdraw from individuals who seem too arrogant or conceited. They are not drawn to the pushy or aggressive types. They could care less for the macho unless it fits some dream they have or if the individual looks macho but is soft and protective on the inside.

They are so sensitive to whoever is around them, most might wonder what they actually DO like. If you approach these women, it definitely has to be done in a subtle way. Though they seem naive and gullible, they are actually rather distant and shy. They shy away quickly from individuals they feel won’t accept them and from guys who seem to have high expectations from women. They are not the most confident ladies walking around. They are drawn to individuals who are underdogs like they are. They may take kindly to anyone who treats them nicely and approaches them in a way that shows they really care about who they are on the inside.

Though these individuals are generally compassionate, they seem a bit cold and distant as well. They can be quite the loners.  Often times, they need a lot of alone time to recharge their energy. This means they don’t really like socialites. They prefer introverted individuals.

They are unpredictable. They may agree to go on a date with someone and cancel the next day for unknown, unexplained reasons. They easily get stressed out when there is too much of a big to-do. They are looking for easy-going, humble individuals who may be a little artistic and open-minded.

They tend to be rather artistic or creative. They are usually drawn to individuals who have some of the same interests.

They also tend to be influenced by the standards of the times. It’s easy for them to be drawn to idols, movie, or music stars. They can idealize anyone they’ve read about or heard about, and they might seek partners that mirror their ideal.

Neptune influences all of this.

They tend to want to feel like they belong, so they are drawn to warm individuals who welcome them with open arms and accept them, flaws and all.

The key to winning their heart is showing an open-minded attitude. Be down for whatever, whenever. Be prepared to spend a lot of alone time with them, sometimes doing everything, sometimes doing nothing. Be adaptable. They have strong moral beliefs, so they would appreciate someone who shares the same beliefs. Jupiter influences them. On the other hand, they often don’t really live up to their own beliefs because they are flexible and impressionable. It’s just best to keep all thoughts open to all possibilities.

They tend to have strange interests and habits and they aren’t traditional. They are drawn to other nontraditional individuals. If anyone gets with them, they have to be prepared to live a simple life and easygoing life. They really just want to escape the harsh world, however it’s done. They appreciate simple things, and see material things as meaningless. They don’t care what you buy them as long as the thought behind it is pure.

Again, these women are dreamers. They do have the ideal picture of their perfect lover in their heads. If you fit that picture, they may be more agreeable to try and date you. Still, a gentle approach works better than a dream. Neptune has something to do with their dreamy nature. Believe it or not, these women are quite picky because of this. They are feeling-based. Everything has to feel right.

These women are also freedom-loving. They are hard to pin down. This is why they hate high-maintenance people or people who make too many demands.

At the same time, because they often have a difficult time functioning alone, they may settle with just about anyone until they find the one they really one.

Because they’re looking for the ideal, they always have in their minds that others are looking for the ideal as well. If they feel they can’t live up to most people’s standards, they will cower away from a potential love interest.

Sexually, they need a gentle approach with someone who will treat them gently before they even feel motivated. They often have a certain dream or ideal of how it should feel and how the setting will be. For them, reality is so much less satisfying. The environment must be as they dreamed it would be. They are impressed by an individual who fits their dreams. They have a certain ideal and anyone who makes that come true gets them begging for more. Yea, these women often read erotic literature or watch romantic movies or porn. This sort of “educates” them on the sexual experiences they want to have. They want someone who approaches sex in a humble and sweet way. They may like their partners to quietly submit themselves, maybe even beg. They are easily influenced by “needy” types. They see sex as an escape from the everyday world, as a way of giving back

If she chose you, you must have seemed like a dreamy individual. You might have seemed, to them, to have walked straight out of their minds and into the real world. They are quite picky believe it or not. You must have felt just right.

TURN OFF: Pushy individuals. Show-offs. Snobs. Macho, dominant, aggressive types. Judgmental people. Anyone mean in any way. Superficial individuals. Anyone who just doesn’t “feel” right. Rigid or conservative individuals.

These women are dreamers and idealists. They have beliefs that guide them. These beliefs keep them open to all the possibilities. Jupiter influences this area of their lives. Then they have that artsy, compassionate side that is influenced by Neptune.

This sign is co-ruled by Jupiter and Neptune. Jupiter is a social planet and lasts in a sign for about one year. Neptune is a generational planet. It can last in one sign for 10+ years. Therefore, they can influence a generation of people.

Read the Mars sign that best fits your Jupiter and Neptune sign and see if it feels more familiar to you. For instance, if your Jupiter or Neptune is in Aries, read Mars in Aries.
