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

29 Dec


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.

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.


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.


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.


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.


I felt cheated because I played this “quiz” on 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.


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.


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


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 
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
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 
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, dark brown, black, red, yellow

Capricorn, cool and goal-oriented
Main-Black, dark brown, dark gray
Other: indigo, dark purple, navy, dark red, brown, white, dark green

Aquarius, spontaneous and altruistic
Main-Electric blue, turquoise,aquamarine
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.


Beyonce expresses her inner fierceness in this dark red leather coat! Moon in Scorpio at its finest!

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!

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.


Zendaya manages to look cool and empowering in purple!

So try and combine your planetary energy with your sign energy and see what magic you can create!

Ever After High: Is Darling Charming Apple White’s “True Love”? I Don’t Think So!

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, can’t even escape from the pressure to conform to the latest trend.

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.

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 Apple White’s “true love”.

This may seem like a proud day for the LGBT 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 highly doubt that the creators really intended to turn Darling Charming’s “CPR” into Apple White’s “true love’s kiss”. There are several indications in the webisodes and throughout the movie that reveal the REAL intentions of the scene.

As told in recent fairy tales, “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.  Therefore, how can it be that Darling is Apple’s “true love’s kiss” in this case? The only “loving” feeling Darling Charming has had 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.

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.

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 a “heart” out. But if Darling really was 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. 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”.

The magical light and the coughed-out 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.

On Darling Charming’s profile, she states she likes “guys”. How could Mattel “intend” to make her Apple White’s “true love’s kiss” if they already set up her profile that way? Even if she was into girls that are pure of heart, 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).

Finally, the scene in Dragon Games scene seems to be a play on the Grimm Brother’s story of Snow White. 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 a challenge…

The original story of Snow White mirrors Apple White’s situation in the 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

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 story is 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 have 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.

Who is HE and What Does He expect from YOUR Relationship? By the signs (Masculine Identity)

21 Mar

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”?


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 men expect out of their relationships and his own sexuality, which is mostly what I’m going to discuss in this article.

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.

Why 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 seem 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!

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.

What Does SHE See in YOU? By the signs

Venus in a woman’s chart will reflect her social identity, what she expects from a relationship, and her own sexuality.

Who is SHE and What Does She Expect from YOUR Relationship? By the Signs

So now that you know more about Mars in a man’s chart, we can learn how each man utilizes his own Martian gifts, how each man defines masculinity in his own terms, and his own sexuality through the signs.

Mars signs:

Mars in Aries

Mars in Taurus

Mars in Gemini

Mars in Cancer

Mars in Leo

Mars in Virgo

Mars in Libra

Mars in Scorpio

Mars in Sagittarius

Mars in Capricorn

Mars in Aquarius

Mars in Pisces

Mars in Aries


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.

The men with this position often express traditional masculine qualities quite easily without even trying. It’s so natural for these men to live up to the standard that men should be leaders, should be assertive, and should be active. These are their basic personality qualities! Even if these men don’t feel very masculine, they still feel it is important for a man to believe in himself and keep a sense of independence. They often can’t help but be the alpha man in any group they go into. They are the ones coming up with all the ideas. They are the ones putting plans into quick action. If they aren’t the ones in charge, they will bump heads with whoever is or leave that group. Of course, they often need a side-kick to handle the details and to keep things going long-term, otherwise they tend to get bored, looking for some excitement or starting some trouble.

These men are confident. They can do anything they put their minds to. They are usually full of energy and ready to take on the next big challenge in their lives.

They are so original in thought and action, they are usually found starting new businesses or being the first to get involved with a new business venture. They are unafraid of the unknown. They take risks, and it usually pays off for them. They may like jobs with some sort of risk factor involved, like firefighting, military, or criminal justice.

However, they should be careful when taking physical risks. These men like physical challenges, including sports. Though they may like any sports, they mostly like sports they can play independently. They don’t like watching sports as it bores them to sit still too long. Most of these men enjoy extreme sports (like skateboarding, snowboarding, and biking), Martial Arts, Olympic sports (like swimming or track and field), and/or other sports that allow them to use their energies to the fullest, independently, and in a competitive environment. These men may also like aggressive sports like wrestling, boxing, football, and/or hockey. The only problem these men might have with hockey, basketball, and football would be working on a team. These men tend to be ball hogs, impatient, and a little too cocky when playing with teams. When they lose, they tend to blame others for the loss, causing fights. They may even jump from team to team until they find the “perfect” team that actually WINS. They have no patience for losers. Some of them have a hard time seeing their own mistakes. With their love of speed, they may be interested in races of all kinds.

These men tend to be athletic and physically fit, but they may have a few accidents because they push themselves too hard and they move head-first into things (with their feet tumbling under them).

Even if they are not athletic or physically active, they really need an outlet for their energy, otherwise they will be irritable or causing trouble just to release some tension and ease boredom.  Some of these men may get involved in creative activities if they don’t like sports too much. They may be in a band, touring around. They may get interested into carpentry or electrical work. Regardless, it has to keep them busy and motivated.

They can have bad tempers that flare up and disappear. They tend to make a scene when angry and be passionate about that anger. If someone is angry with them and confronts them, this just makes them angrier! They tend to be impulsive and jump to conclusions.

They need to be careful of getting involved in illegal activities just for the rush. These men see themselves as living a hectic, adventurous life. They may say they’re tired, but they wouldn’t have it any other way! Their drive for “rush” could easily be channeled into taking legal risks, like riding a roller-coaster that has just opened for the first time or traveling to an adventurous destination. These men like to take up dares and like to dare others. There’s nothing wrong with this, as long as they learn the art of moderation. Trying to tell a Mars in Aries man this is the biggest challenge.

These men are headstrong. They don’t like being told what to do or how to do it. They hate rules and obstacles. Even though they tend to fit the social standards of masculinity, they really don’t like conforming to social standards. These men want the freedom to do whatever it is they want. If they want to cook or garden, they want to do it and they won’t let anyone make them feel shame about it! They challenge any system that seeks to control them. Of course, we have to live in a world with other people. So, these men always feel like they have to fight to be respected and to do whatever they want to do. In fact, for them, life always seems like a fight. Some of this is because they’re always picking a fight! They just can’t be “normal” and end up shaking up the system without trying to.

Mars Signs-What’s Your Fighting Style? is a good article to read to learn about what angers Mars in Aries and how they fight and argue.

These men are generally brave. Even when they are afraid, they face their fears courageously. They don’t like to be intimidated.

Friends find them to be fun, exciting, and energetic, but also independent and aggressive. Partners may find them to be highly independent, too.

These guys only honor and respect another man’s independence. But when it comes to anything else, they will overstep another man’s boundaries to get what they want. They challenge other men.

These men always have a young boy inside of them. They love playing around, playing video games, and playing sports no matter how old they are. Their youthful natures rub off on their bodies. They never seem to get old!

Relationships: With such a headstrong, independent, and assertive nature, the biggest challenge in their lives is merging with others. Finding love is an even greater challenge. Regardless of their Venus sign, these men really need a partner that can keep up with their active lifestyle. They also need someone who can pick up and move around, try new things, and make things light and fun because they tend to be out-going and tend to be involved in new things, both in their career and in their personal lives. They can drain partners dry or leave partners in the dust. These men often want love, but they need to be able to do what they want, when they want to. Their headstrong nature makes them difficult to reason with. It’s hard for them to accommodate and sacrifice things they desire for others. People may think they are selfish, but they are actually just really ambitious and easily irritated when settled. They know themselves and know what they need. They need to keep moving. These men need a relationship without a whole lot of baggage tying them down. If a partner is the baggage, they will drop the relationship and not even bat an eye about it. They don’t have patience to really sit and talk about feelings. They have a playful streak and they need a partner that can have fun. They can’t deal with partners that are too mature or too fussy (even if their Venus sign suggests they attracted to mature individuals). They DO NOT like being told what to do. They won’t take it from anyone, not even their partners. If they are bossed around, it’s sure to set off a war. They hate being judged and they hate being controlled. If you want to avoid their aggressive side, it’s best not to provoke the Ram. Partners will end up “bumping heads” with them often.  No matter how much they may want a stable relationship, with a loyal partner, these men need some thrill in their lives. They often tend to like the rush of going after partners and trying to get that person to date them. But when the flames mellow out, they often itch for some excitement. They may suddenly seem to get bored. These men must be careful of cheating. They also need to be careful of constantly finding themselves in poor situations with people they hardly know, just for the rush of it all. These men need a lot of independence, even if they do end up with women who keep them busy. They need their own hobbies, friends, and career. They don’t like being with partners that have the same career. They feel a little threatened when they feel dependent on others, too. This makes them grouchy. They will often only look for partners that make less or an equal amount. They can be really competitive in this way. On the other hand, some may not care, as long as they get to enjoy what they like to do.  As independent as they are, they will do anything for someone they love. They tend to be self-motivated, so they work hard. They take care of their partners well.

This man constantly feels a spark between himself and Mars, the planet of action, desire, and aggression. Mars is exciting and thrilling to this man. Mars comes right at him and makes him feel invigorated. At the same time, Mars is always getting this man into trouble. Power struggles often occur in this relationship. Mars can irritate him, yet he keeps coming back for more excitement! Maybe this man just likes the rush of it all. Mars has a way of provoking the fire out of him, for better or worse.

These men approach love interests confidently or in a straight-forward way. They just tend to come right out with it. They will do anything it takes to get what they want. They will be persistent and they love the challenge. If they are rejected, they may be a little moody and resentful for a minute, but they quickly get over it. Or they may wait (impatiently) until you come around.

When going on dates, these men tend to prefer to do something fun. They can’t stand sitting down all night at a restaurant. They need to at least get up and dance. They often offer to take potential partners to amusement parks or clubs. They may invite them to ride in their car or on their motorcycle. They may also like an adventurous hike up the mountains or horse-back riding on the beach. Whatever it is, it will be exciting. They like to show off how brave they are. It’s hard for them to admit when they’re scared. They aren’t really the most chivalrous men. They often forget to use their manners and they can be honest to a fault. They have a “first come, first served” mentality. They love independence, to be able to open their own doors and pull out their own chairs. They often forget that others don’t really feel the same way.

They may feel that all men want to be able to do what they want to do without anyone criticizing them. They may feel that all men hate being bossed around. They may think most men hate talking about their feelings and most men hate having to open doors and pull out chairs just to please dates. They may think all men are active and that all men have a youthful streak about them. They would be shocked to discover that there are men out here who don’t feel the same.

Male Sexuality: These men see sex like they do their usual lives. They often see sex as something under their control and they have sex when they want to. Their need to act upon it depends on their desires. When they are turned on, it happens fast. They tend to have a need to satisfy that desire right then and there. Otherwise, they will feel really frustrated. Some of them see sex as a conquest or a game. Many may like the excitement of having as many sexual encounters as possible.

Despite their quick urges when the fire is ignited, they don’t need sex all the time. They are quite independent from the act. They usually don’t get addicted or obsessed with one partner. Once they have sex, they move on. They don’t form emotional attachments; they just see it as an outlet for their burning desires and unsettled energy. Other energies in the chart have to keep them attached to their partners.

They are quick in the bedroom. Once they are turned on, they get it out quickly, passionately, skipping the foreplay. They do not take their time and they can be a little aggressive about it. They often forget to take the time to please their partners. If they do remember, they are active participants in the act. They still may be the dominant one without even trying. They are super sure of their actions and confident that they can please. Still, they love the rush of being around a partner who is equally as passionate. If you want them to respect your sexuality, you have to dominate them and show some sexual confidence.

If you like a man who is assertive, independent, active, and fun, you will love these men. If you need close intimacy, some time to relax, need stability, and want a mature relationship, this isn’t the man for you. If you have a lot of aspects to Mars or Mars in the 1st house, you may relate to this description. Mars rules over Aries. Any planets or house cusp placements in Aries or Scorpio will be affected by this position.

Mars in Taurus


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 Mars isn’t comfortable here doesn’t mean these men aren’t masculine. In fact, the men with this placement see masculinity in the context of the traditional. These men believe a real man is physically strong, makes money, has lovers, and has a steady life. They feel that men should always have something to own. Their fathers and/or other men they admire have a strong influence on them. They tend to model themselves after the people they admire. They tend to have a fixed way of viewing masculinity, too. They can be possessive of even their ideas, not wanting these ideas to be changed by anyone. This is a threat to their masculinity.

The issue is that Mars in Taurus men have a fragile masculinity because they are often too concerned about coming off “feminine”. They have such a strict code regarding masculinity, they often have a hard time breaking the “masculine” rules. The funny part is they often break these standards without trying. It’s hard to live up to social standards in every way and these men have an inner soft side. This could make them uncomfortable in their own skin. They want to be seen as tough and strong, like they perceive men are supposed to be, yet they also want to appreciate the beauty around them. The problem is they care too much about how they will be seen by others. In this way, they won’t take up any dare or chart their own destinies for fear of losing their masculine security. This makes them seem like they have a fragile masculinity that is threatened by anything. They have a strong sense of ownership. They define masculinity on their own terms and don’t want anyone taking that away from them.

The men with this placement are usually charming, attractive, and down-to-earth. They are best described as laid-back. They are usually slow to anger and reasonable. They tend to have a way with women. Even if they aren’t interested in women, they know how to attract the right people to them. They may have quite a few female friends.

These men are about the material things. Even if they don’t have a lot of money, they tend to judge others’ worth by how much money or material things they have. They can be very superficial and physical. Many of them have a passion and desire for material things. They feel threatened around people who make more money or anyone who looks better. Some may equally reject money for a more natural life, loving farming and the outdoors. Some of these men could be the rugged types.

These men love to indulge in pleasures. They are often caught up in food, drink, and other finer things (they must be careful of getting involved with alcohol and drugs). They tend to be artistic in some way. They could be interested in music, painting, sketching, sculpting, or any other creative outlets. They appreciate beauty and they like to fully experience and enjoy it. They tend to care a little more about their appearance in comparison to other men. Even if they don’t, they have a specific style. They may enjoy one brand or style over other brands or styles.

These men are practical. They work hard for what they want. They like stability and understand how important security is. Unfortunately, they do have a lazy streak. They prefer jobs where they can be creative and have plenty of time to relax and take it easy. They like to take their time and they patiently go after whatever it is they want. Results may not be immediate, but they know they will get what they want in time. They are rooted in their jobs, too. They prefer jobs that can last a long time and help them pay the bills. They also need to be able to get the material things they want. They really hate working under others. They hate to be pushed around and working according to other people’s schedules. If anyone approaches them, a soft, charming approach is better than an aggressive approach. Fortunately, they don’t get angry easily. Don’t think this means they are easy to push around. Keep pushing him, and the raging Bull will emerge. And that side is hard to calm down! These men can hold a lasting grudge if angered. Still, they are more than likely to give the cold shoulder before they get into a physical fight. The problem is that these men let their anger build up inside. When it finally does spill over, it’s uncontrollable!

When it comes to sports, they tend to enjoy sports that help them show off their physical strength. They may like wrestling and boxing. They can be good at any sports, really, because they have a lot of staying power. If they love a sport enough, they can do it for a living. However, they are likely to choose sports that are considered “normal” like basketball, baseball, or football. No matter what sport they choose, they aren’t necessarily the competitive types. They play for the fun of it. They hate to play sports with people who get too caught up in the game. They certainly don’t want anyone blaming them for anything going wrong in the game. They tend to only like sports they are really good at, so they are not likely to face that problem often. They are good at any physical training. However, they do need time to relax, even from sports. They may enjoy watching sports more than playing them.

These men, again, are slow to anger. They are only likely to get angry when anyone challenges their sense of ownership. This sense of ownership could be taking their money away, their home, or even their lover. It could be making them feel like less of a man. It could be embarrassing them in front of friends or family members. It can be insulting their race, culture, or country. Whatever the case, they want the ultimate respect. They have a “tribe” sort of mentality. They can be fiercely protective of the things and people they love. If people are angry with them, however, they will avoid confrontation at all cost.

Mars Signs-What’s Your Fighting Style? is a good article to read to learn about what angers Mars in Taurus and how they fight and argue.

It can be challenging to respect them at times. They are very opinionated. They are also stubborn and have a hard time admitting when they are wrong. They tend to be really shallow in their thinking. They do have a lot of common sense, though. It’s just their thinking on matters never float beyond the surface.

These men are strong, sometimes even physically. They can endure a lot. When they channel their energies, they are determined to get whatever it is they want accomplished. Because of their charm and strength, they are capable of conquering empires. They make some of the world’s most notorious leaders. They are good at making others feel at ease in a crisis and good at building up those who are weak. They are rock solid.

Around their fellow male peers, they are generally the strong, silent types. They tend to be the leaders, being the glue that holds their friends together. They can be a little conceited and stuck in their ways. Other men may find them to be oily or too focused on their possessions and/or talents. At the same time, many of their fellow peers find them to be real and authentic. They seem to understand what it takes to be a “real” man and they seem to get all the ladies, so men respect and admire them. Partners may find them to be charming and laid-back, but difficult to move or shake.

If they really want something or someone, they will try their hardest to get what they want. However, they try to avoid open competition. So they will attempt to get what they want in a smoother way. Mostly, they like to have their own things rather than receiving left-overs.

Relationships: Due to their steady nature, these men tend to like steady relationships. They usually want something that lasts. They don’t jump into things too quickly, but once they do, they expect their partners to stay with them forever. This doesn’t mean they don’t cheat. They have an appreciation for beauty. If they feel their partners aren’t pleasing them physically, they may search for this pleasure in others. It’s also hard for them to resist others’ charms. However, these men are less likely to want to put up with the drama and the consequences. They may try to keep both partners away from one another, trying to avoid the changes that could occur. They should be careful of this. Drama is sure to follow.

These men generally want a relationship that is relaxing and chilled. They need their partners to be patient with them. They don’t like to be bossed around. They are stubborn. They hate to be moved when they don’t want to. They tend to get comfortable in relationships easily and may take lovers for granted after awhile. This isn’t intentional. They just want to indulge in the pleasure of the moment and they often forget to give as much as they receive. They aren’t fans of change. They like a steady routine and they want to come home to a warm meal and clean, comfortable sheets. They also need pleasure in their relationships. They want partners who will cater to them. They like everything to go their way. If they do something nice for their partners, it will be when they want to do it, not when their partners want them to do it.

This man always seems to feel a spark between himself and Venus, the planet of love, beauty, and art. Venus is so charming and attractive, this man can’t help but feel the heat. Her feminine wiles drive him mad with lust! Venus is not only beautiful, but loving and peaceful. She shows an appreciation for everything, and this excites him. Of course, to be around such a soft creature, this man has to soften his approach to matters and refine his own nature. She doesn’t share the same depth or sense of excitement he has after all.

When approaching potential lovers, these men tend to take their time. Sometimes, they wait until the person comes up to them. They may like someone for a long time before they ask them out. When they finally do, they use their charms, good looks, and money to woo others. They may like to show off their talents or their possessions. These men may like to sing a song or recite poetry. They may be down-right romantic when pursuing someone. They are smooth. They are also persistent and use the same method over and over until the person breaks. They don’t take rejection well. It tends to make them fall hard. Once someone rejects them, that person will not get another chance.

When taking someone on a date, they tend to like a place that is both romantic, peaceful, and pleasing. They may like to take their dates to a jazz club or to a restaurant that plays tasteful music. They may like to go to or have outdoor barbecues or have a picnic. They may cook at home or order a lavish dinner and invite someone over to their place. They will allow their partners to choose whatever they want on the menu. If they don’t have a lot of money, they will more than likely make lunch or dinner.  They may find a place that’s less expensive but still really tasty. These men may like to go to museums (on a quiet day), art galleries, or to large parks. Whatever place they choose, it will be chilled and romantic. They certainly know how to make their partners feel comfortable. They use their good old-fashioned manners. They are usually soft-spoken when around someone they like. They tend to treat partners gently and they are always calm. They never cause a scene when trying to impress someone, so partners can count on them to behave.

Again, these men have a traditional view of masculinity. They believe it’s the man’s job to pay for everything. They believe men are supposed to be strong, both physically and inside. They believe all men are the same and all men want the same things. They believe all men hate to be pushed around and like to chill and do relaxing activities, like watching the game on T.V. It would make them uncomfortable to meet men who think differently from them. In fact, they would find those men strange.

Male Sexuality: These men see sex as a pleasurable activity. They can only do it when relaxed. At the same time, if they are too relaxed, they may not want to do it at all. They are slow to build their passion and energy. They need a lot of physical stimulation. They take their time, enjoying every moment with their partners. They prefer sexual partners that take their time pleasing them in every way. They are patient lovers.

They need to have sex with a partner they are attracted to. It’s hard enough for them to build their passions. It’s even more challenging when their partners are unappealing. They need someone who puts some effort into turning them on. They tend to be very physical.

Once they get started sexually, they can go all night. They tend to have a strong sex drive once it is ignited. They can try many positions, but they never do anything too taboo.

If you want a man who is strong, stable, practical, easy-going, this is the man for you. If you are bossy, not really a physical person, prefer to move at a faster pace, and/or you like to change up things often, this man is not the one for you. If you have Venus aspecting Mars or Mars in the 2nd house, you may relate to this description. Taurus is ruled by Venus, so your Venus sign will alter your expression.  You can read the description of your Venus sign within this page. For example, if you have Mars in Taurus, Venus in Gemini, you can read Mars in Gemini to see if it sounds more familiar to you. Any planets or house placement cusps in Aries or Scorpio will be affected by this planet.

Mars in 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.

The men with this placement carry a certain boyishness forever with them. They are talkative, playful, sporty, and love to play pranks. They are quite mischievous. They are clever and witty. They notice everything. These guys are social creatures. They don’t like spending time at home alone. They would rather be out, getting into something.

The men with this placement can be of two types (being a Gemini and all). They can be super smart, loving to read and express their opinions and thoughts or they can have a hard time sitting still long enough to read and engage in a decent conversation. These types are easily distracted by everything going on around them. When bored, they get tired. They must be careful of nervousness and headaches due to absorbing too much around them. These guys can be very superficial. They live such a scattered lifestyle they often don’t have time to develop themselves and reflect on the deeper things within. They are thinkers, but they mostly focus on trivia or little tidbits.

Men with this placement can work at many different jobs. They can work two jobs at once. They have a lot of skills and they learn quickly. They mostly like jobs that keep them busy. They only care about money in the way they can use money to explore all there is to explore in life. But they aren’t really materialistic.

They might be interested in all kinds of games. They may love chess, board games, or video games. They are interested in PC games and apps, too. They often have the latest technology, if they can afford it. If they can’t, they will find a way to try something new. They have plenty of connections. They aren’t shy and easily talk to people.

If they are interested in sports, they usually like to play sports that help them make use of both their physical and mental energies. They tend to like soccer/football, baseball, hockey, basketball, and American football. They really love to play. But they never take sports seriously. These men are capable of coming up with their own sports games if they wanted to. They are so resourceful and versatile. They can take a football and make it into something else entirely. These guys are so active, they can make a game out of anything. They tend to be physically thin and athletic-looking as a result of their changeable energy. They may also be interested in sports sponsored by the community. They will side with their local teams before any international teams. They don’t often have the patience to sit and watch sports unless they are watching it with others.

These men have an open-minded view of masculinity. It really depends on their social group (and it depends on who you’re asking). If they are around macho guys, they will develop a macho attitude. They tend to want to fit in and maintain a certain neutral social status. If they are around more open-minded guys, they will be, too. No matter what side they take, they are really curious about everything. If they could have it their way (and not have to worry about losing their social groups), they would try everything. And I mean everything. They are not against trying make-up, cooking, and/or hair-styling. They still may love women. Still, these men want the freedom to experience everything at least once. They can be very impressionable as a result. It’s easy to convince them to try anything. They must be careful of peer pressure to get involved in drugs and alcohol. Those things don’t always make a person cool and it can have lasting damaging effects on the body. These men love to party and club. But deep down, they’re kind of geeky or nerdy. They could own a motorcycle and love rock music, then turn around and love comic books and Disney movies.

These men don’t get angry easily. They would rather laugh things off than get too serious. Still, you’ll know when you’ve rubbed them the wrong way. They have a sharp tongue and can find some unheard of curse words, too. The only thing that makes them angry is when someone constantly picks with them and constantly talks about them to others. They can tolerate a lot, but they will blow up eventually. If someone is angry with them, they will try to talk their way out of the confrontation or manipulate the situation in their favor.

Mars Signs-What’s Your Fighting Style? is a good article to read to learn about what angers Mars in Gemini and how they fight and argue.

Around their fellow male peers, they are fun, wiry, talkative, and hilariously funny. They can equally be annoying, mischievous, and immature. Peers may also find them to be two-faced. It’s not that they are, but they can easily adapt into any crowd. They like being around all kinds of people. Partners may find them to be fun and humorous, but a little fickle and unpredictable.

As far as respecting another man’s boundaries, this also depends on who you’re asking. Again, they want to maintain their social connections, but they want to try everything. They are likely to overstep someone else’s boundaries and lie about it or never tell anyone about it. They’re good at telling lies. They know how to keep a straight face and use the right body language. They always have shifty eyes, so it would be hard to tell just by looking at their eyes. The funny part is, as much as they lie, they really hate liars.

Relationships: These versatile men tend to want to experience everything they can in a relationship. This often makes it difficult to tie them down to one relationship. They are always curious and itching to try something new. Often these men think it’s impossible not to cheat, but really it’s all in their minds. They are a mental sign after all. They are so influenced by others, they let society influence their thinking. These men often watch or hear about men cheating. Since it’s so glamorized, these men itch to try it. With the right mental readjustment, they can begin to see the versatility within one partner. Of course, it would be easier if they could find a partner who equally likes to change things up all the time. If they can find several people in ONE person, they will be happy in a steady relationship.

This man constantly feels a spark between himself and Mercury, the planet of communication, intellect, and reason. Mercury is constantly talking, learning, and moving, so this man’s relationship with him is never boring! Of course, things move so fast for them, they can hardly take the time to fully enjoy their relationship. In fact, at the end of it all, they feel a complete hang-over, both mental and physical exhaustion. But hey, if you’re going to live, why not live fully?

These men approach love interests in a “now you see me, now you don’t” kind of way. They come around their love interests at social gatherings, use their mental game (i.e. flirting), and try to get into that person’s mind. They can be a little coarse in what they say. But they are adaptable. If one method doesn’t work, they will try a new approach. They must be careful of lying just to impress someone. They are better off showing off their clever wit and intelligence. People love men who make them laugh. Mars in Geminis are experts at lightening the mood! They are charming and friendly. They must remember these qualities work better than lying. They don’t take rejection as hard as other men, especially if they have someone else they’re interested in. Even if they’re not interested in someone else, they leave and then come back again! They may even suggest that they at least be friends with the person they’re interested in. Still, they hate to be embarrassed in front of their friends. If it’s easier for their friends to get dates, and they constantly get rejected, they will be moody and depressed. Sometimes, these men joke around to hide their pain. They really must handle these feelings. Otherwise, their feelings will turn from sadness to resentment, then anger, then outright aggression.

When going on dates, they tend to like to try a combination of things all at once. Partners should be prepared to use all of their energy. They like to go to places that are both fun and interesting. They may like going to cultural festivals, clubs, amusement parks, or even museums. Sometimes, they may try to do all of this at once! Fortunately, they are adaptable. If they see that their partners aren’t having fun or maybe having too much fun, they will drop any plans they had and go with whatever their partners want. Still, if they were to ask you out, their partners had better wear some sensible shoes just in case. The Mars in Gemini guys floats between the perfect gentleman and the mischievous rude boy. They may open doors and pull out chairs. Then, somewhere throughout the date, they may play pranks and tease their dates. This, of course, depends on how comfortable they are with their dates. If they are just getting to know their dates, they will be more polite. They are socially-aware. If they know their dates well, expect the unexpected.

These men tend to think all men cheat. They tend to feel that all men want freedom and want to try new things all the time. They probably think all men have the same interests and are all more curious than women. They may even think men are more open-minded than women. They may be surprised that other men have different views regarding masculinity.

Male Sexuality: These men see sex as a fun activity. Again, they like to try new things. Sex is on their bucket lists and they want to try everything regarding the subject. They really need a partner that’s just as open and experimental as they are. If they can’t explore everything to the fullest with one partner, they will find ways to get what they want somewhere else. It’s a sure reason for them to cheat. They may find other ways to experience various sexual activities through porn or through various partners.

Of course, sex is mostly a mental thing for these guys. They don’t really need a physical person to experience sex. They would do well with virtual sex or even “sexting”. They can also easily divert their attention from sex by focusing on something else until a later date. Once turned on, though, they may want it quickly.

These men are easily influenced by other men’s ideas of sex. They are even more influenced by the men around them, like their friends or family members. If their friends are exploring sex, they will want to as well. They will feel more rejection if they can’t explore what they think other men are exploring. They will feel like they are missing out on life.

If you love a man who is fun, smart, flirty, and adaptable, you will love these guys. If you dislike talking and need stability, he may not be the one for you. If you have Mercury aspecting Mars or Mars in the 3rd house, you may relate to this description. Gemini is ruled by Mercury, so your Mercury sign will alter your expression.  You can read the description of your Mercury sign within this page. For example, if you have Mars in Gemini, Mercury in Cancer, you can read Mars in Cancer to see if it sounds more familiar to you.

Mars in 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.

These men have two conflicting views regarding masculinity. They both have a traditional and non-traditional view of masculinity. They often have traditional views when comparing themselves to women and children. Like their fathers and grandfathers, they believe it is the man’s job to protect their families, provide security for their families, and make their fathers proud of them. They often feel like their masculinity is decided by these factors. On the other hand, as individuals, they have interests that the world may not be ready to consider “masculine”. For instance, these men may be interested in domestic activities such as cooking and gardening. These men may prefer creative jobs (like music, designing cartoons, or painting) instead of an office job (though they may settle to maintain security). They may be extremely close to their mothers. In fact, they may even deeply admire their mothers! These men are also more in touch with their emotions. Society isn’t ready for men to enter into this kind of world. Thus, these men often feel weaker than other men or bullied by other men for being “different”. These men have to learn to accept themselves and trust their instincts. They really are ahead of the world. They have to learn to be comfortable with that. These men still have people who admire them, even if they don’t realize it. They seem genuine and they express themselves well. They tend to relate to the “average guy”. They understand men on an intuitive level, a level rarely reached by other men. They have the ability to get in touch with the masses, which can help them in any career they get into.

These men may have insecurities with feeling weaker than other men. In order to feel stronger, some of these men may abuse those they feel are weaker just so they can feel stronger. They may try to place strict codes between men and women, fearing female domination. They are also really sensitive. They do have to be careful of women controlling or abusing them, but they should be careful they aren’t getting too paranoid.

They tend to be really protective of their families and friends. If anyone messes with the ones they love, they will get angry. They are uncontrollable when angered. Their emotions get so involved, they take it out on anyone around them. Since showing emotions are shunned by men, these men channel it into physical aggression. They are instinctive in a fight. On the other hand, some will let others bully them only to later get back at that person in a round-about fashion.

As much as they love their families, sometimes they can’t get along with them either. Their fathers tend to be hard on them or causing commotion within the home. They often fight and argue with female relatives due to differences. Domestic violence may be common in their households. Their mothers may be the dominant figures in the home and may try to make them feel “less than”.

Just don’t hit them too personally. If you can avoid the things they are touchy about, you will avoid their tempers. They also absolutely HATE betrayal and disloyalty. Some will give you the cold shoulder, others will confront you. It all depends on their mood.

Mars Signs-What’s Your Fighting Style? is a good article to read to learn about what angers Mars in Cancers and how they fight and argue.

Generally, though, these men are quiet and sweet. Most of them keep to themselves and enjoy doing activities within the home. They tend to be “book smart” and often spend a lot of time reading. They tend to have educated opinions. They may enjoy carpentry, as they love building things. It makes them feel “manly”. They are good when it comes to fixing things around the house.

They instinctively think about the needs of others. They often do things for others without really thinking about it. When their friends or family members need them most, they are there.

When it comes to sports, they can be extremely athletic or uninterested. It all depends on how they were raised. If their families taught them to love sports, they tend to be interested in the sports of their homeland. They may feel a sense of “family” with sports teams. They may have a love of soccer/football, American football, baseball, basketball, rugby, or other sports that remind them of where they come from.

Again, they love creative jobs, but they also like the medical professions and psychology. They may also be interested in criminal justice because they like protecting others.They may love teaching because they do well with children.

Around male peers, they tend to be quiet loners. If they have close friends, they will be understanding, supportive, and like another brother. On the other hand, friends may find them to be too sensitive and easy to anger. Partners will find them protective and sweet, but a little complex and hard to read.

They tend to respect others’ boundaries. They do not steal what they feel is another man’s. If they really want what someone else has, they will try to persuade the other party to see things their way. If they are unsuccessful, they will leave the situation where it is. They may find a “backyard” method as well, avoiding conflict.

Relationships: They may not admit it, but they get super attached in relationships. Mars intensifies their emotions. These men need loyal partners. They need a partner that they can trust. They usually pour everything out for their partners. If they even sense disloyalty, they are not the nicest people to be around. Usually, they are protective, generous, and caring. If they feel their partners have changed towards them, they get threatened. When these men get threatened, they get angry. They want a relationship where they feel a connection with their partners. They like to have a lot in common with partners because they like to do things together. They may seem a little clingy and smothering. They are overprotective sometimes. They are just trying to do what they feel they are supposed to do. You can tell them to ease up, just say it nicely. They may attract strong partners because they like to feel secure with someone, but they equally hate being dominated. They don’t like being pushed around. It would be best to feel like an equal in their relationships to avoid arguing and fighting.

These men constantly feel a spark between themselves and the Moon, the luminary associated with emotions, instincts, and habits. They can’t quite define their relationship with her. It’s tumultuous and dramatic, at the same time, familiar and secure. Their feelings reach a stronger height than ever before, making them feel an indescribable rush and a passionate desire. Yet, they feel out of control and out of touch with reality when with her. They know this relationship is rocky, yet they feel a certain chemistry with the Moon. Perhaps they love the roller-coaster ride.

When approaching someone they like, they have a difficult time. They are shy and they have a boy-next-door appeal. They tend to try an indirect approach. They may send the person they like sweet little gifts, like flowers. It will be signed “anonymous”. It will be difficult for others to decipher their feelings at first. The more intuitive souls will know it’s them immediately. They try to keep it hidden as best they can until the person recognizes them. Of course, they can be moody when they like someone, especially if that person has yet to notice them. They may try to get the person alone so that they can talk with them. They must remember to always be themselves and have a little more confidence. They have a lot to offer, just like any other man.

When taking someone out on a date, they tend to like a nice, quiet, and intimate setting. They may invite the person over to come to their house for dinner. They may take their dates to a nice, cozy restaurant, perhaps the family restaurant. They may pack a picnic basket and have a picnic in the park. They may take their dates to a cultural festival, enjoying the sights and foods that represent their nation. They may just ask where their dates would like to go. They can be quite the romantics. They can be chivalrous when around their partners. They will be protective, too. They are the types to give their jackets to partners that are cold or spoon feed their partners at the table. They walk on the side of the street that is the muddiest. They will even carry their partners if they are tired!

They believe all men want respect. They tend to believe that all men should think and feel as they do. They tend to encourage men to support other men and build each other up. Of course, they also recognize that all men are different from one another. They recognize how unique they are and wouldn’t be surprised to find men who are different from them.

Male Sexuality: These men see sex as a way to unleash their passions, desires, feelings, or to build their self-esteem. Regardless, they get super involved with their partners sexually. When they are in love with someone, sex usually follows. They may be attached to their partners after a sexual encounter. They feel they have given of themselves during the act. If they have many sexual partners, they may feel this way with all of them! However, it would be difficult for them to accept any of these partners cheating on them. They should be careful giving their hearts away to too many partners. They can’t have them all.

On the other hand, some of these men can be absolutely loyal sexually. They are even more loyal when children are in the picture. Some tend to like the idea of getting a woman pregnant and starting a family. They must be careful of spreading their seed too far and wide. It will break them eventually.

They tend to have sex when they feel the “emotions of the moment”. They don’t often stop and think. They are passionate lovers when they want someone. They can’t control themselves once turned on. It’s best for lovers not to be alone with them if they aren’t interested in sex. On the other hand, they want to please their partners and won’t be pushy too often. They may enjoy foreplay with their partners, but they are serious when they have sex. They can be both gentle and rough sexually, but they aren’t likely to be too taboo. They like all positions, but their favorite involves chest-to-chest contact.

If you love a man who is protective, caring, and security-oriented, you will love these men. If you can’t take too many emotions, not really a family girl, or want someone extremely confident, they may not be the man for you. If you have Moon aspecting Mars or Mars in the 4th house, you may relate to this description. Cancer is ruled by Moon, so your Moon sign will alter your expression.  You can read the description of your Moon sign within this page. For example, if you have Mars in Cancer, Moon in Leo, you can read Mars in Leo to see if it sounds more familiar to you.

Mars in 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.

These men tend to be proud of their masculinity. They tend to put on a big show, flaunting themselves around as the alpha man in any group. They really do like to show off. Actually, they don’t really have to try. They are natural leaders in any room they go into. They carry a sense of confidence that is enviable. They tend to have a lot of personality, too. They can be funny, almost clownish. It is hard to ignore them.

They believe confidence is the key to being masculine. They believe the alpha man in any group is the man who is the most popular, the one who wears the best clothes, has the most money, and is extremely attractive. Basically, the man who stands out the most. When they meet men who best them in this way, they feel threatened and they get competitive. However, they will never show their weaknesses in public.

These men are destined for fame and attention. When they want it, they know how to channel their energies towards accomplishing great things. Their goal is to earn honor and respect. They want to be proud of whatever they do. They are often considered good role models as a result.

They have an inner child inside of themselves. They are playful and light-hearted. They also make great fathers because they tend to keep their kids motivated. They really want young boys to look up to them. They want to guide children in the right direction. They must be careful not to invest their ego too much in other people’s lives. They don’t want to try and take the shine from someone else. They should avoid being bossy and commanding.

They do well in jobs that help them express their unique natures. They may do well in politics and management positions because they like being in charge and they tend to be good at organizing events and people. They may do well in the fashion industry as they tend to make sure they wear the latest styles. They could be great as a sports coach or athlete. They would be great in entertainment. They always have an entrepreneur deep inside at all times. They are always trying to strike it rich and they can see the business opportunity in anything. They have a creative mind.  Regardless, these men really strive to be the best in whatever field they get into. They are adventurous and enthusiastic when they get a business plan going.

They are really big kids at heart. They love sports of all kinds. Their problem is they may feel they have to be the star on every team. They have a hard time taking a backseat. The good part is they really strive to BE the best. When they are the captain or quarterback, they are good at motivating their team. They could outshine the cheerleaders! They enjoy watching sports, but they always have an idea of how they could’ve played better. They tend to support the “best” team rather than a team that has had consistent losses.

The less athletic guys may have many creative interests. They may be in a band in their spare time or they may enjoy planning house parties. They love to party. These guys are gregarious by nature. Their birthday parties tend to be a huge deal! They tend to have an adventurous life. They need to be careful of gambling and taking financial risks. They also should be careful of taking physical dares. This isn’t always bad. They should just make sure everything they try doesn’t bring physical damage to themselves.

These guys are generally positive and upbeat. But their tempers can be ferocious and dramatic (though their bark tends to be worse than their bite). A jab at their pride is sure to set them off. They don’t like to be humiliated. They hate to be told what to do in any way. They don’t even like when others get an authoritative tone. They have a hard time working under others as a result.

Mars Signs-What’s Your Fighting Style? is a good article to read to learn about what angers Mars in Leos and how they fight and argue.

Around male peers, they tend to be loud, flamboyant, and confident. They almost seem invincible. Of course, drama seems to follow these guys. They seem really popular and jovial. They are always center stage. Male peers may equally find them to be arrogant, to be braggarts, or to be all talk and no show. Some may even find them annoying. Partners find them exciting, funny, and romantic, but maybe a little dramatic and self-centered.

They don’t like taking another man’s possessions or lovers. They have too much pride to have someone else’s leftovers. At the same time, they could learn to let others shine every once in a while.

Relationships: The Mars in Leo man is just as passionate and dramatic in relationships as he is in life. He’s actually very romantic. He wants his relationships to be fun, passionate, and suited to all of his needs. In every instance, he has to be the center of attention in his relationships. He may feel he represents his relationships. He must make sure to remember that a relationship consists of TWO people instead of one person. When they remember this, they can be generous, playful, and attentive to their lovers. They really have a strong need to be attractive and they strive to the best lovers they can be (even if it’s just for show). The more pompous Mars in Leos want to be taken care of.

These men tend to want partners that are attentive, humble, submissive, and caring. They want to be treated like kings, with their partners feeding them and doing the hard work for them. If they are more like the humble lions, they tend to want to be the ones to take care of their partners and their families. Their pride won’t allow anyone to take over. They feel it’s the man’s responsibility to not only be the king, but run the kingdom. Most Mars in Leo men are loyal partners, but some take many partners to stroke their egos. They mostly need partners that make them look good in some way.

These men constantly feel a spark between themselves and the Sun, the luminary associated with the self, our main concerns, and vitality. When with the Sun, this man believes in himself. The Sun supports anything and everything he does, and this boosts his confidence. With the Sun around, these men feel invincible. His goals come first and take first priority. Maybe he seems a little self-centered, but he’s always full of life, thanks to the Sun’s warm support. The Sun is always on the same page. On the other hand, the Sun may take away all the shine in their attempt to support the man, which may cause some conflict and tension. As long as the Sun’s intentions are positive, this man will feel invigorated.

When approaching someone they like, they are usually either dramatic or romantic. They tend to pull out all of their game for the one they want. They are the types to announce their interest in public, in front of others. They will send dozens of roses, shed tons of money on gifts and expensive dinners, and will be there when the car breaks down or repairs need to be made. Some of them may expect to be appreciated for all that they do. If they are rejected, they will feel taken for granted. This is because they really do too much to win someone else’s heart. These gentlemen have to be reminded that it was their own choice to be elaborate, knowing they may not win in the end. They really don’t like losing, not even when trying to impress someone they like. They will really get bitter if they see that person with someone else. It really hurts their pride to be rejected. They are really sensitive deep down.

When going on a date, these men tend to like to have a lot of fun. Whatever they do and wherever they go will be amazing and unforgettable. They tend to take their partners to lavish, expensive restaurants. They may take their lovers to fancy operas or concerts of choice (with V.I.P passes). If they have less money, they will still try to make the night as special as they can. With their playful natures, they may enjoy the day at a fair or amusement park. They may play all the games just to win prizes for their dates. Whatever they do, they will add flair and drama to it. They want their partners to find them to be the most impressive suitor of all. They must remember not to splurge too much on their dates. They can be really chivalrous. They generally treat women with the ultimate respect when trying to impress them. Sometimes, they over-do it. Their problem is letting all discussions focus on themselves. They must try a little harder to pay attention to their partners and show some interest in them as people.

These men tend to feel all men should be the leader in a relationship. They may think all men want to be catered to and taken care of. They would be shocked to find men who think differently from them. They may still be stubborn about their ideas.

Male Sexuality: These men see sex as a part of making love and receiving pleasure in their relationships. They generally like to be the dominant partner. They love foreplay and creating an interesting scene in the bedroom. These men love the attention from their partners no matter what. Sex is just another way for them to shine. They tend to be playful and fun sexually.

They want their partners to think they are the best sex partners ever. They like to share information about their sexuality or their experiences with their friends. Some may care more about their own pleasure. Others may care what their partners want, making sure the overall experience is amazing for both parties. Whatever goes on in the bedroom, they want to make sure mostly positive things are said about the experience. They may be reluctant to jump in the bedroom with someone if they aren’t sure they can perform at their best.

If you love a man who has a lot of personality, someone fun and entertaining, playful and generous, you will love these men. If you need to be the dominant one, dislike drama, and don’t like a whole lot of attention, they may not be the men for you. If you have Sun aspecting Mars or Mars in the 5th house, you may relate to this description.

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.

These men seem so humble that other men often think they are easy targets and that they can be pushed around. These guys do have an “innocent” way about them. They have a strong moral code, a strong sense of righteousness, and they are generally good men. They just need to be careful of letting other boss them around and they need to learn to stand up for themselves.

They are funny, witty, and pay attention to all the details. This makes them seem a little oily. They are perfectionists who cater to every part of their appearance. They make sure they stay healthy and fit. They can be critical of others as well. They have often stung others with their sharp criticisms. But they are good at giving advice and helping others, even if what they say is too sharp.

They have such a keen eye for detail, they can work in any field. They make excellent game designers and producers because they know how to put together complex games using sophisticated software. They are often seen in politics because they speak well, are humble, and understand the “average” person. They could do well in the medical fields because they are health-conscious. They make excellent authors and critics as well. They are good at acting because they completely capture every detail of a character. Whatever job they take on, they complete every task effortlessly or try their best to.

They may like any sports. Mostly, though, they’d rather watch sports than play them professionally. They aren’t the competitive types and they tend to be particular when getting down and “dirty”. Some of them have hidden health issues they are trying to overcome as well. But those that are really athletic enjoy solo sports that allow them to use their mental expertise. They may enjoy Olympic sports like racing. They may enjoy measuring distance and discovering clever ways of beating their opponents. They are interested in animals, so they may be interested in being a horse jockey. They may enjoy extreme sports tremendously because they are excellent at calculating the best moves to make on ramps and for tricks.

Around male peers, they are generally quiet and humble. They are funny and tend to get along with most guys they know. Some guys may find them to be a little critical and judgmental, but very few people have a bad word to say about these men. At least they are honest. Somewhat, they are loners, so they don’t really give people anything to talk about. Partners find them to be reliable, responsible, and dependable, but workaholics.

They tend to respect other men and their boundaries. They usually have no desire to overstep someone else’s grounds. They are too smart to walk into territory they don’t belong. If they do want what another man has, they use their brains and wait until that item (or person) is available.

They are attentive and helpful. When a car needs to be fixed or their partners can’t find something important, they will be around to help. Of course, they can be a little critical of their partners. If their partners change up their routines, they can get really sharp. They also tend to point out little things that seem “out of place”, like a hair strand sticking up or untied shoelaces. It comes out as “too honest”. This may aggravate their partners. They also don’t spend a whole lot of time with their lovers. They are always so busy. It would be best for their partners to have “busy work” to do as well. First off, they respect others who work hard. Second, it will be the best way to ease loneliness. Working with them on a project might be a way to spend more time with them. Of course, they have to be in charge of the project because they are very specific about their ideas. It would be great to suggest that these men set aside some time to spend with loved ones. A lot of it could be shyness. They often want to be the perfect lovers and often don’t know the best way to show that without messing up. They really need a partner that is tolerant and easy-going to make them feel at ease. They don’t need demanding types.

This man constantly feels a spark between himself and Mercury, the planet of communication, intellect, and reason. The information this man receives from Mercury is useful and inspires practical action. This man may feel that life moves a little fast with Mercury, but Mercury has a lot to offer. This man can’t deny that a lot more gets done when he’s working together with Mercury, even if the projects don’t last very long. Being around someone so intelligent and reasonable really makes this man feel strong and motivated.

When approaching someone they like, they get a little nervous and shy. They usually try a simple approach. They start off with a pleasant greeting and then simply ask the person out somewhere. Some may give compliments. They usually make sure they are dressed well and they pull out their best manners. It’s best if they prepare ahead of time, though. When they get nervous, they may sweat a lot or stumble. Some are smoother than others. Others are attentive. These types observe the people they want long before approaching them. They often find the right words to say. They usually offer to help the person they like with something and move in from there. If they are rejected, they generally get really hard on themselves. They often have to know the reason for the rejection and will try to fix it for next time.

They usually like to take their dates wherever their dates want to go. Of course, if they could have it their way, the date would be simple and inexpensive. They generally want partners who aren’t extremely materialistic. They don’t necessarily feel that a man has to spend a lot of money to please someone. They would enjoy a nice walk in the park. Being an earth sign, they appreciate nature. A day at the Aquarium would be something they would suggest. It’s both interesting and soothing. They like to take their dates to quiet dinners in clean environments. They might even enjoy a day at a fair. Wherever they go, it will be perfect. It will be romantic, but not dramatic or cheesy. It will be nice but not super expensive. They are always well-mannered in public, so that shouldn’t be a problem.

These men may feel most men are laid-back but generally like their routines. They may feel most men dislike partners who are dramatic. They may be surprised to find that other men have their own ideas about masculinity.

Male Sexuality: These men view sex as something a man should understand. They see it as healthy and a good stress reliever. They take a lot of time and effort to perfect their skills. Of course, they may seem a little nervous or cautious about the act as a result. They always want to make sure they perform well, just like they do at work. They tend to be very good at making their partners feel comfortable. They are self-serving, getting more excited by their partners’ pleasure.

They are particular about who they have sex with. Again, they want it to be a healthy activity. They generally are more cautious with more experienced partners. They are careful with people who have had too many partners. The individual may be hot to him, but he has enough self-control to deny a partner sex if he feels the person is “unclean”.  But they have a curious side and they love to learn. They may be more experimental than most earth signs.

If you love a man who is chilled and helpful, you will love them. If you need a lot of romance and you require a lot of attention, he may not be the one for you. If you have Mercury aspecting Mars or Mars in the 6th house, you may relate to this description. Virgo is ruled by Mercury, so your Mercury sign will alter your expression.  You can read the description of your Mercury sign within this page. For example, if you have Mars in Virgo, Mercury in Libra, you can read Mars in Libra to see if it sounds more familiar to you.

Mars in 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.

The men with this placement often don’t feel as tough or aggressive as other men. They tend to have a lot of energy for pleasurable activities, but they never put their foot forward too hard or too fast. Their idea of manhood tends to be contrary to society’s view of manhood. They feel that what makes them masculine is their cool, easy-going, and creative nature. They believe that masculinity is mental and that a real man is smart and good at negotiating. They mostly feel masculinity is a social thing rather than an instinctive, physical, or biological thing. They are logical and reasonable in the way they see masculinity. They can understand how masculinity can be defined in many different ways.

These men don’t see the need to be as competitive or boastful like other men. At the same time, they feel uncomfortable when they don’t fit in. They tend to either make themselves feel more unique or they over-emphasize their masculinity to overcompensate for their weaknesses. What’s most important is being attractive. They really want lovers in their lives and they strive to be respected by their partners.

These men are super intelligent and love to read. They generally love open discussions. However, they tend to get heated in conversations, turning them into debates or arguments. They always feel like they need the last word. If they are proven wrong, it angers and disappoints them. They can even get resentful. Though they generally hate arguing and fighting, they often start them without intending to.

They are actually really good leaders. They are good at bringing opposing parties together for one common goal because they aren’t too dominant, they are persuasive, and they are team-oriented. They are good at motivating others. This is because they are motivated by others.

They are generally better-suited to jobs where they can be creative and easily work with others on a team. They may enjoy the music field. They could be excellent painters and sculptors. They do well in politics and office jobs. They would make excellent lawyers because they are fierce debaters and are often determined to win in a conversation. They don’t do well in jobs that are hard or laborious unless they work with someone else. Any job they take on, they have to really love. Otherwise, they will be unmotivated and lazy.

They love sports, watching it and playing. They try not to take it too seriously, though. On the other hand, if they were to work at something they love, and if they loved sports, they may choose it as a career. They still don’t want their favorite hobbies to feel too much like a hard job. They generally do well on teams. American football, basketball, hockey, and soccer/football are all sports they do well with. They may love sports that take grace and intelligence like fencing. They may enjoy extreme sports or even Olympic sports because of the balance required. Though they would rather do something they love, their drive isn’t as strong. They may be indecisive, switching from sport to sport. They usually seem dispassionate about sports, even if they play it for a living.

If they aren’t interested in sports, they are definitely more creative. They also love to socialize and party. They love that life of luxury and ease. Their social life is very important to them. They get irritated and nervous when they are alone too long. They often have a hard time doing anything alone.

These guys are passive-aggressive. They get mad, but they never address it. They will wear a smile or keep a cool head even when angry. But they may find some under-handed way to get back at the person they are angry with. They may also manipulate other people to side with them. They are stronger in numbers. They can be superficial and judgmental, staying away from people who they deem as rude and inconsiderate. In fact, it makes them angry. It makes them angry when someone criticizes the way they look. It makes them irritated when people are loud and flamboyant. It frustrates them when others are unreasonable or difficult to talk to. They don’t often realize when they are guilty of being loud, unreasonable, and critical. They will physically fight if their strong sense of justice is attacked. They believe in fairness. They will fight for their loved ones as well. However, they hate fighting and being on another person’s bad side. They quickly “do the right thing” and apologize for their behavior (unless they strongly feel they were right). Some people may take this kindness as weak and fickle. They just don’t like holding a grudge. They really want to be well-liked. Sometimes, they often blame others for their own behavior rather than own up to their own anger. They hate to lose their cool.

While these men fancy themselves as unique thinkers, they secretly have a desire to be seen and respected as other men are. They don’t necessarily want to compete and keep up with other guys, but they often feel like they have to so other men will leave them alone. They are generally really cool, fun, and laid-back around friends. They make excellent friends because they are supportive and friendly. They are down for doing anything as long as their friends want to do it. But some people may find them to be phony, fickle, and indecisive. It’s hard for them to make decisions and they always let others pressure them.

They are passive-aggressive about respecting another man’s boundaries as well. Most of them never overstep another man’s boundaries. They just don’t have the competitive drive to do it and they hate drama. Still, if they want something, they know how to manipulate the situation in their favor. They tend to be excellent strategists. They know how to get things in the palms of their hands without stealing what is someone else’s. With their powers of persuasion, most just hand it to them!

Relationships: Relationships were made for them. Libra is the sign of relations and they usually have a strong desire to be in a partnership. They hate shouldering the weight of the world alone. It’s difficult for them to do anything alone. They often feel more confident and courageous when with a partner. They often spend a lot of time with their partners, getting frustrated when their partners are too independent. On the other hand, they are quite indecisive and often feel that things would be better if they were with “someone else”. They always dissatisfied in relationships because their standards are so high. Their issue is that they haven’t discovered who they are and what it is they really desire. They should learn to decipher what it is they really want before they get into a relationship. Their social status is also important. They want partners that make them look good in some way. At the same time, they want partners that are better than they are (financially, physically, etc) or more dominant. They want balance in their lives.

These men always seem to feel a spark between themselves and Venus, the planet of love, beauty, and art. Nothing inspires them more than the lovely Venus! She’s graceful, charming, and a pleasure to be around. She’s so classy, refined, and cultured. These men can’t help but feel lust for her. Yet, if they want to keep her beauty and refined nature, they must show how much they appreciate her. This means they must calm their excitable nature and learn to relax-something really challenging when this man is around someone so alluring!

When approaching someone they like, they are generally awkward actually. They always try not to come on too strong, but they also want a partner badly. Trying to keep both sides balanced makes them seem a little uncomfortable when asking someone out. They generally try to look attractive and try to get love interests to meet them half-way. They may try to use their money, talents, or skills to impress a lover. Whatever it takes, they will try to use it. They may not always be direct, but they will be smoother than normal. They generally try to do something with someone they like, like work on a project together, so their interest can get to know them. They generally get depressed and resentful when rejected, especially if all of their friends are dating. If they let this resentment sit, it can turn to aggression. They may not take it out on the person, but others around them will hear about it.

They are true romantics when it comes to dates. They may do whatever it takes to please their partners. They may take their love interests to luxury dinners, on romantic boat rides, or to a play or opera. They will make sure the day is a classy and artistic event. They always come with gifts, too. They are always chivalrous, easy-going, and mild when on a date. They try to be on their best behavior. Everything has to be perfect.

They may feel that all men like women, even if they aren’t interested in them romantically. They may feel women influence a man’s decisions on everything. They would be uncomfortable to find men who think differently.

Male Sexuality: These men see sex as a pleasurable activity and suited to love-making. They need a sexy, attractive partner to be motivated. If they are arguing or angry at a partner, they will not be sexually attracted to their partners and may desire other partners. These men love to please their partners thoroughly when on good terms. But when things get sour, they often cheat. They have a hard time resisting others’ charms as well.

They are balanced sexually. They love the pleasure they can get from sex, but they aren’t particularly passionate lovers. They set the perfect scene and are charming in the bedroom. They are experts with foreplay and know how to make their lovers comfortable. They are never too experimental or taboo. They would rather try positions that are easy and comfortable.

If you love a man who is charming, romantic, cool, and attractive, you will love this men. If you’re looking for someone stronger-willed or decisive, they may not be the men for you.

Mars in 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.

These men are intense and powerful. Rather, they really want to be powerful. Their idea of masculinity is being powerful within. They tend to seem really scrawny and weak on the outside, but on the inside is a force that is hard to control. These men are charismatic and easily influence others. Everything they do, they put passion behind it. They tend to be ruthlessly ambitious. They often don’t pay attention to the toes they step on. They sometimes don’t care. When they want something, they will get it, no matter what it takes. As powerful as they are, they are generally quiet and secretive. No one hardly ever knows what’s going on in their lives. They may hold deep, almost scary feelings within.

Scorpio is a sign of transformation. They are fully in control of their actions. They can channel their energies to overcome any habits or obstacles. They tend to make powerful changes on the inside first. They always start with their attitude. The changes slowly start to affect their outer life. Before you know it, they will seem like different men entirely. They have a lot of insight and they reflect deeply on themselves.

They do amazing in jobs that give them some power and influence. They may really enjoy being involved in politics or in their criminal justice system. They must be careful of getting involved in criminal activities, thinking that it will give them power and influence (because it really doesn’t). They may also be interested in the entertainment industry, though they may prefer to be producers and song-writers, working away from the limelight. If the limelight gives them influence, they will go for it, but they may meet some roadblocks along the way, due to their strong-willed and ruthless natures. These men are so fierce about their privacy, it is likely they will give the paparazzi more juice with their rage. It’s best if they influence events from behind the celebrities. They may even do well with journalism. They are excellent at uncovering hidden secrets. They would be excellent entrepreneurs. They are good with businesses and handling resources. They tend to know underground trends and can almost predict success. They would be good at inventing things. They could be good at banking or treasury, but they should be careful not to dip their hands in the funds. They have the drive and focus to put their passions into anything they set their minds to.

These men may like sports, but most are independent and don’t care to play around with others. They may also get too worked up and serious about a game, causing it to be less fun. When they play sports, they will do anything to win (even underhanded things). They may enjoy powerful sports like boxing, wrestling, football, and hockey-sports where they can crush their opponents. They may even like daring sports, like extreme skating or skateboarding. They may enjoy martial arts of all kinds.

This website is good for understanding Mars in Scorpio in sports: Sports & Mars

Most, however, are not extremely athletic. They tend to focus all of their energies towards major projects or their goals. This can make them geniuses in their craft, highly creative, and super successful. They tend to be interested in deep, dark subjects, like monsters, aliens, and other supernatural subjects. They may get involved in conspiracy theories. They may be interested in science, particularly loving chemistry. They make passionate debaters and they tend to their research on everything.

Mars in Scorpios don’t get angry too often. But when they do, it is one of the scariest experiences for those who know them well. Of all the Scorpion placements, Mars in Scorpios are the scariest. The list of things that will set them off: Invasion of privacy, talking about their loved ones or hurting them in any way, insulting their intelligence, personal perceived injustice, and stripping them of their power and control. They may not seem angry once angered. They may say something sharp and cutting or nothing at all. But they will get revenge. They will exact their revenge. Whatever you did to them, they will do it back. They will not stop until they have you suffering. When someone hurts them, they see that person as having power over them for a moment. They won’t rest until they’ve taken back power from their enemies. They don’t pick fights with people. They usually don’t start drama. But they will never back down from a fight. At the end of the day, they are water signs. Emotions run deep and spill over.

Mars Signs-What’s Your Fighting Style? is a good article to read to learn about what angers Mars in Scorpios and how they fight and argue.

Around male peers, they are secretive and quiet. They mostly hang with other men like themselves, those who make them feel more powerful. Their friends may find them to be strong, intense, and mysterious. They may seem a little too serious as well. But they can be fun, as they are daredevils at heart. Partners may find them magnetic and sexy, but a bit controlled or controlling. They are mostly loners.

They have an interesting perception of “boundaries”. If they want something, they won’t let anyone stop them from getting it. They respect other men who fight for what’s there’s, but they have no qualms with trying to fight to take it from them. These men have to literally be defeated in their efforts. And then, they won’t be happy campers. They will be resentful and hard to reach until they get over it and transform themselves (which they do to make themselves stronger). Their emotions run so deep they can hardly control it.

Relationships: In relationships, they are fiercely attached to the ones they love. Unfortunately, they often try the field before realizing the one they really want. They have strong desires. They can seem a little possessive or controlling. They really want a deep and meaningful relationship. They want to feel “complete”. Somehow, they long for a partner that can really transform their lives. These partners give them the rush they crave. Many times, they jump from partner to partner, only to find shallow individuals. If they can find that individual who is so much more than a pretty face, they will feel completely submerged in that person’s existence. They are generally quiet guys without too much going on at home. They like quiet, secretive partners who respect their boundaries. They respect and admire passionate, ambitious partners. Sharing is caring for them. They love partners that give to them as much as they will give in return. They tend to give their all, body and soul, for someone they really want. Yet, they always keep their most personal feelings close until they can trust whoever they are with.

This man tends to feel a spark between himself, Mars, and Pluto. Mars is the planet of action, desire, and aggression. Pluto is the planet of transformation, obsession, and power. When this man is with Mars, he feels a lust for life! Mars makes him feel thrilled and excited. Pluto, on the other hand, makes him feel powerful and in control. When in charge, he can’t handle himself, making his relationship pretty tense. Pluto changes this man for life. His relationship with both of them lead him towards the edge. Even when things get a little crazy, he can’t escape. While he feels in control, Pluto really has control over him, making this man obsessed with the rush. This is a dangerous relationship-but he wouldn’t have it any other way.

When approaching someone they like, they tend to be persistent and honest. They are all about breaking defenses and finding weaknesses. “No” is not enough to stop them. If they really like someone, they will do whatever it takes to get that person. They will wait patiently, trying to find an opening. They will try to make you go out with them at least once. They see rejection as an obstacle that they have to overcome. They may constantly change their tactics. You almost have to make yourself unattractive in order for them to stop and they will leave like they’ve never even liked you. They are all or nothing.

When taking someone on a date, they are really down for anything. They aren’t particular about dates. They usually ask where their dates want to go. It helps them learn a little more about their dates and see where their dates’ minds are. Let them know the time, place, and day. They will take their dates there. They mostly want to take their lovers to their house or to a hotel somewhere so they can get “intimate”. They may want to chill out, watch movies, have a few drinks, and get to know their dates in a quiet, private setting. They don’t really think about manners and chivalry. They mostly try to be themselves. They don’t like fake charms.

They may feel all men are passionate creatures who want what they want. They may perceive all men to have the same strong desires they have. They may feel all men can’t be trusted entirely. They wouldn’t be shocked to discover other men who think differently, but they would think those men have a hard time understanding the true nature of men (as they see it) and may feel those men are more superficial.

Male Sexuality: When turned on, these men are passionate. They usually want to have sexual contact immediately. They see sex as a way to release their desires for someone. They generally an unrelenting in sexual pursuit. They may be a little ruthless and selfish sexually, trying to dominate and control their partners. They like to have a little control. On the other hand, they respect a sexual partner that is a challenge. They may be interested in dark or taboo sexual practices. Sex is usually not a light-hearted experience with them. It’s emotionally deep and involved. They become really attached to their partners and want their partners to become obsessed with them, too. Of course, when they desire anyone they will go after them. This could lead them into the world of cheating if left uncontrolled. They often have little control over their urges, but they are in total control of their actions. If they want someone, they go after them unrestricted but act as if they are cool about everything.

If you love a man who is passionate, driven, sexy, and magnetic, you will love them. If you don’t like to be controlled or dislike anything too deep, you may not like them so much. If you have Pluto aspecting Mars or Mars in the 8th house, you may relate to this description. Scorpio is also ruled by Pluto, so your Pluto sign will alter your expression.  You can read the description of your Pluto sign within this page. For example, if you have Mars in Scorpio, Pluto in Sagittarius, you can read Mars in Sagittarius to see if it sounds more familiar to you.

Mars in 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.

Men with this placement see masculinity in the context of a man’s freedom, his beliefs, and his experiences. As men, they feel it is important to explore the world, study and develop helpful philosophies, and grow as a person and bring their knowledge to others. These men feel they have a lot to teach other men about being a “man”. These men scatter much of their energies everywhere, lacking any focus. They really hate to be fenced in.

They tend to have a love of cultures and language. They may be have strong beliefs regarding either their religions or philosophies. They always want to be their “own” man, keeping their thoughts independent from others. Though they want followers, they often fear losing their individuality and others’ high expectations. Though they always have high standards, expecting to gain “bigger and better” from the world, they don’t like when those standards are placed or forced on them.

These men tend to have a lot of personality and are good at making others laugh.

They need a job that offers them freedom and plenty of new experiences. They may enjoy archaeology because they get to explore cultures and history. They may also enjoy planning cultural events or cultural festivals as a Cultural Affairs Specialist. They may want to hit the open road to nowhere. They may enjoy teaching or missionary work because they get to share their ideas and beliefs. They may enjoy getting involved in the entertainment industry, since they both love luxury, traveling, and entertaining folks. Whatever job they take on, they don’t want to follow another person’s rules and they want to work their own hours.

They tend to be sporty by nature, loving adventure and the great outdoors. Their positive, out-going, and happy-go-lucky nature makes it easy for them to take chances. They may enjoy extreme sports tremendously. They may be interested in horse racing, as it makes them feel free and rugged. They may love motorcycles or race car driving. They may love basketball and football and any other team sport, but they have a difficult time being tied down to teams. They may switch teams just for the experience. They also lack discipline. They play sports for the fun of it and will only do it professionally for the glory and luxury it offers. They really do everything for the fun of it. They don’t want to take anything too seriously (except maybe their beliefs).

They are usually happy men, but they can be super attached to their beliefs and ideas. They get so wrapped up in them, they often spark controversial debates. They even get angry with people who disagree with them. They need to learn not to take their ideas and beliefs too seriously. They also must learn to reason with others and listen more. They can be too preachy. They need to be careful of angering others on purpose. They can be blunt and they tend to mock others’ ideas when they disagree. They definitely would get angry if these people start standing up to them! They don’t mean to bully others, though. They just don’t know when to get serious until it’s too late. They aren’t particularly aggressive, but they will fight when angered.

Mars Signs-What’s Your Fighting Style? is a good article to read to learn about what angers Mars in Sagittarius and how they fight and argue.

Around their fellow peers, they are fun, lively, and adventurous. They always have a story to share. Friends may also find them to be independent and absent often. They aren’t the most reliable and may often make promises they forget about or aren’t able to keep. Some of them may find them flaky as a result. They tend to boast and exaggerate as well, which can annoy some of their friends. Partners may find them exciting and intelligent but hard to pin down.

These men see boundaries as something that is literally “claimed”. But they don’t waste their time with items or people who are already “taken”. If they are coerced by someone, they will jump on the opportunity. But they won’t waste their time chasing down anyone or anything that is unavailable. They aren’t that focused and don’t take anything too seriously.

Relationships: They mostly don’t care for relationships. But if they were to have a committed relationship, they need to have their freedom within it. They like to do things independently from partners and they are often gone from home. They don’t want anyone tying them down. They want their relationships to be fun and light of drama and baggage. Arguments are sure to get them running. They need a partner that will either have their own lives, be willing to pick up and move with them often, or will not nag them if they don’t come home.

These men feel a spark between themselves and Jupiter, the planet of expansion, optimism, and abundance. His ship only runs on happy faces. When around Jupiter, nothing can bring him down. Jupiter encourages this man to test the waters, the lands, and the skies! Yet, everything he wants and desires, he gets from Jupiter-and more! Jupiter motivates him to get more out of life than the ordinary, and this man can’t help but feel inspired. Jupiter is definitely his good luck charm.

They generally approach someone they like with confidence. They often boast and exaggerated their abilities. They really try to shine in front of someone they like. When rejected, they may be a little disappointed, but they quickly move on.

When going on a date, they like to have fun. They generally know how to turn even the most boring events into a fun time. They are funny, lively, and positive. They may like taking their dates to luxurious restaurants. They tend to over spend and shower their interests with everything.

On the other hand, some may boost up their manners to give their dates the ultimate dating experience.

They think all men need space to roam. They also feel men want to experience life. They may not feel men can be faithful. They may feel all men want their beliefs respected. They often can’t accept when others think differently from them, but there are men who do have different thoughts on masculinity.

Male Sexuality: These men see sex as a chance to display their experiences. They may feel it’s important for men to be sexually experience. They may have some great philosophy surrounding sex. They may see sex as an opportunity to the Divine’s will and “spread the seed”. Of course, they often don’t want to be tied down with all of their “seeds”. Though they may want many experiences with many lovers, they have a hard time attaching themselves to these lovers based on sex. They may never have the same sex partner twice! Other energies in the chart have to keep them attached. Their moral beliefs have to influence them a little more. If not, you won’t find a sexually faithful man out of him.

Sexually, they see it as a sport and want to try everything. They may not want to try everything at once, but they want to explore their partners fully. They are open-minded and down for anything, as long as they don’t wake up to a clingy, emotional partner in the morning.

Mars in 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 disappointed. Mars has to make some sacrifices in this sign, but it’s well worth it in the end.

These men have a “survival of the fittest” mentality when it comes to masculinity. They believe only the strong survive. They don’t have patience for weakness and excuses.

The men who aren’t interested in sports could be involved in anything that gives them an excellent challenge and a chance for respect.

These men don’t get angry easily. Not too much gets under their skin. Even when angry, they try to find a healthy outlet for their feelings. They must be careful of hiding anger or holding anger inside. Most times, they confront individuals once they’ve calmed down. They get more frustrated with people who are unreasonable and too emotional. They mostly hate when others attack their physical security. No one should interfere with their goals and do other petty vindictive things. It’s childish to these men. It’s sure to anger them. But they would rather cut you out of their lives than lose their cool over small issues. Just about every issue is a small matter to these men. They have other things to worry about than to hold grudges and focus on squabbles.

Around their peers, they are generally cool, funny, and laid-back. Most of their friends find them easy to get along with. Others may seem a little hard-nosed and ruthlessly ambitious. Some won’t even help their friends if they feel it will stop them from achieving their goals or if they feel their friends would be better at the job than they are. Partners find them sensible and easy-going but a little too controlled.

As far as boundaries, these men will push as far as they can go. If they can get away with it, they will overstep another man’s boundaries until someone stops them.

Relationships: These men want stability in their lives. They want as few problems as possible. They don’t like drama. They want their relationships to be drama-free and they want partners that add or enhance their lives in some way. They don’t want a relationship to interfere with survival or their goals. The practical things come first for them.

These men feel a spark between themselves and Saturn, the planet of restriction, pessimism, and structure. This man thrives when faced with the limitations Saturn places. He feels a need to test Saturn’s boundaries, and yet Saturn proves to this man his limits. His relationship with Saturn is a challenging one, yet always solid. Saturn is trustworthy and never fails him. While he wants to rebel against Saturn, he will long for that security net when he does step out of those boundaries. It’s too exciting to feel like he’s not allowed to do something, more than it is to know he can! He’s the man who likes rules just so he can have the satisfaction of breaking them (and then setting those rules back up again).

When approaching love interests, they keep a calm, cool, well-calculated approach. They try not to seem too desperate. Still, they are ambitious. They like to impress love interests with their good manners, their businesses, or their status. They may show off their knowledge regarding the work they do. They want their lovers to think of them as capable and competent.

They like to plan their dates with their love interests. Once everything is planned, they will be open to doing anything. They don’t like a spontaneous rendezvous. And once they’ve planned where to go, they don’t want to randomly change things up. They like to stick to their plans. These men are naturally composed and responsible, so they tend to be well-behaved without trying. But they would never immediately consider themselves chivalrous or polite. They are more responsible and dependable.

They may feel all men want to be strong and want to feel successful in the world. They may feel men are less emotional than women. They may be shocked to find men who think differently from them.

Male Sexuality: Once turned on, they go after their love interests honestly. They may have strong desires, but they don’t always act on their desires. They have a lot of self-control and can set their desires aside while they focus on more important things. They don’t let themselves go too far. They don’t like baggage. They are practical about starting a family and don’t like doing things on a whim.

They have to be in control and on top of their sex lives. They don’t easily let themselves go. They like to be the dominant partner. They also like experienced partners who know how to dominate every once in a while, but they have to be prepared for whatever is going on. They need their partners to know what they’re doing. He needs to feel secure with his sexual partner.

If you want a man who is cool, slow to anger, and goal-oriented, you will love this man. If you need someone more sensitive or someone who is less controlled, they may not be the men for you. If you have Saturn aspecting Mars or Mars in the 10th house, you may relate to this description.

Mars in 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.

Men with this placement see masculinity as motivated by society. And they don’t feel they should be defined by society’s social ideas. They are society’s truest rebels. They define masculinity in any way they want to, according to their own interests. They don’t like feeling controlled at all. They are very progressive men. They may be large supporters of the herbivore movement. Yet, they may be interested in what any other man is interested in, too.

They are open-minded and like to try new things. They are always interested in the latest technologies, theories, and ideas. They make engaging conversationalists because they are so involved with the world and so knowledgeable about what’s going on. They are intelligent and inventive. Many are geniuses. They are involved in some of the most interesting activities.

They are outgoing men, social, and friendly. They hardly ever spend time at home. They especially love to be surrounded by friends, clubs, or associations. They like working in a team for a common goal.

They could be good in jobs that can help the world in some way. They may be humanitarians, working for charities or programs that help others. They may like volunteer work. They may like being involved in politics as they are outspoken and like to have a say in their laws. They may enjoy the entertainment industry where they can be creative and innovative as well as outspoken. They work well with technology or the latest inventions. Their career choices may be various, but always unusual and interesting.

They like sports, especially if they get to work in a team. They are active people. As long as they have their team, they feel unbeatable. The only issue is they can’t be too stuck to a group. They don’t want to lose their individuality. They may be interested in unusual sports or progressive sports. They may like daring extreme sports. They may like bowling and golf. They may still love normal sports, too. They like to change things up all the time. One day they may like one sport and will change the next!

Aquarius is too cool for anger. They don’t see the point in getting mad. They would rather avoid people who try to upset them. They never try to upset others, but they can be straight-forward, which can anger some folks. If they do get angry, it’s because they feel their freedom is being taken from them. In this way, they will fight fiercely! They often tend to use non-violent but intelligent ways to fight opponents. They will not be suppressed. They use their voices to speak out against anything they feel is unfair. They have the connections to make their enemies feel shame.

Mars Signs-What’s Your Fighting Style? is a good article to read to learn about what angers Mars in Aquarius and how they fight and argue.

Around male peers, they are friendly, easy-going, and fun. They are always down for anything which makes them great companions. Of course, they have a strong need for freedom. They may seem eccentric or quirky at times. Partners may find them open-minded and easy to work with but hard to tie down.

Aquarius men have no desire to take what is someone else’s. It’s not worth it.

Relationships: They don’t want anyone trying to tie them down or control them. Relationships will only work with these men if they have the freedom to do what they did before a relationship. They see relationships as just another friendship. They prefer to be friends with partners. They don’t like drama and they get irritated when things get too emotional. Anything that threatens their freedom angers them. They need to maintain some autonomy and at least have their own hobbies and friends. They are always involved in some activities and they tend to surround themselves with associates. Their partners need to be open-minded.

These men constantly feel a spark between two conflicting energies: Saturn and Uranus. Saturn is the planet of restriction, pessimism, and structure. Uranus is the planet of rebellion, eccentricity, and upheaval. These men feel free when in a relationship with Uranus. They feel wild, like nothing in the world matters. They like that Uranus breaks the rules and encourages them to counter life with their own way of doing things. At the same time, they need rules to break them. Saturn respects their boundaries and keeps them separated from the chains of emotion. Saturn is logical and cool-almost cold. With too much Uranus, life never settles down and can become a little dangerous. They can’t really achieve much with so much change. With Saturn, life is stable and allows the man to achieve his goals in a structured manner. Without it, every cause will be lost.

When approaching someone they like, they tend to be cool and relaxed. They mostly try to make friends first and then they try to move in on someone they like. They can be a little awkward when trying to ask someone out. They may “slip it in” in the middle of a conversation.

They generally like to try unusual and distinct activities. They will more than likely take their dates to interesting cultural festivals or conventions, like the KCon or the anime convention. They may take their dates somewhere meaningful like to a museum or in a park. They generally try to take their dates to places that can help them strike up a good conversation. They are generally open to anything and willing to change things up mid-date. They are actually really polite and easy-going. Of course, they are progressive men and prefer to treat their dates as equals. They don’t care to open doors and pull out chairs. They just treat people the way they want to be treated.

They may feel that all men want freedom and need their “own thing”. Of course, they feel each man is an individual. They certainly don’t like to be compared to other men. Still, other men may feel differently from them.

Male Sexuality: They have an open-minded view of sex. They are open to experimenting with anything. The quirkier the better! Still, they don’t need physical contact to enjoy sex. They see sex as a mental thing rather than a physical or spiritual thing. The thought of sex excites them more than the actual act. They actually have a hard time letting go in the actual act, especially with rowdy, passionate partners. Passionate people scare them a little.

They also don’t like the emotional baggage that comes with a sexual relationship. They fear their partners getting too attached or being weighed down with children. They prefer to keep “sex friends” who agree to keep their feelings out of it.

If you love a guy who is intelligent, involved in his community, and all about fairness and equality, you will love him. If you need emotional attachment and are easily jealous, they may not be the men for you. If you have Saturn or Uranus aspecting Mars or Mars in the 11th house, you may relate to this description. Aquarius is ruled by Saturn and Uranus, so your Saturn and Uranus signs will alter your expression.  You can read the description of your Saturn and Uranus signs within this page. For example, if you have Mars in Aquarius, Saturn or Uranus in Pisces, you can read Mars in Pisces to see if it sounds more familiar to you. Any planets or house placement cusps in Aries or Scorpio will be affected by this planet.

Mars in 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.

These men are much more passive than other men. They are quite, humble, and nice. Their idea of being a man is heavily influenced by the men in their environment. Being ruled by Neptune, they are easily influenced by others. They must be careful of being swept up in drugs and alcohol or any other addictions. They can easily get involved in “brotherhoods” that make them feel stronger or more powerful. They feel stronger in numbers.

They have a love of peace, solitude, and freedom. They are really loners who mostly stick to themselves. They often prefer pleasant company. They get stressed around demanding people. These men “go with the flow”. They may seem like easy targets to bullies. One of the reasons they are pushed around is because they aren’t as assertive as they should be. Instead they just “let” things happen.

These men spend a lot of time dreaming. They always want to escape from the hardships of life. They try to keep their spirits up and they tend to be unrealistic. On a positive note, these guys are truly compassionate. They are great listeners and will be there for their friends in a crisis.

They are creative types. They are well-suited to a career in music, drawing, or other forms of art. They may do well in farming or working off the ocean or sea (being a water sign and all). They may do well in religious fields, the medical fields, or teaching because they love bringing hope to others. They may work for charity organizations. They need a flexible routine because life really weighs on them. Sometimes, they feel a burst of energy; other times they are completely inert. They need a lot of time alone to recharge their energies. They absorb so much in their environments, it’s hard for them to relax. They need moments of isolation and meditation to keep them going. They also need positive people surrounding them at all times. With the right support, they can be involved in any career.

They athletic ones tend to learn sports easily. They absorb their surroundings and learn quickly. They don’t really like tense environments, but they love to have fun. They may be interested in playing any sports for a living as long as they can find a good team with a reasonable coach. They can be sensitive so they need to be around people they can get along with. They may be interested in sports that allow them freedom, like football/soccer or any sorts of racing. They often look to sports to inspire them and save them from a harsh environment. Sports can be an outlet for the aggression that they hold inside.

They tend to have many different interests. They can get interested in anything. They are open-minded. Still, they must set up boundaries.

They don’t get angry too often. But they hate to be backed in a corner by more aggressive souls. The usual passive fish can turn into a shark if pushed around too long. Their anger is almost psychotic because it has usually been burning deep within. They are not usually aggressive, but they can turn aggressive if pushed too far. They can also be manipulative and vindictive if they aren’t able to fight physically.

Mars Signs-What’s Your Fighting Style? is a good article to read to learn about what angers Mars in Pisces and how they fight and argue.

Around male peers, they are shy but caring and helpful. They often let their friends push them around. Some friends may find them manipulative and weak-willed. Partners will find them humble and sweet. However, they seem to lack drive and ambition.

They usually don’t overstep another person’s boundaries. They hate confrontation. Still, some can manipulate situations in their favor.

Relationships: They generally want their relationships to be calm and chilled. They are often looking for the ideal partner. They want a partner that is understanding, accepting, and easy-going. They also really need patience. They prefer partners that have the same interests. They don’t like bossy, demanding types. In fact, it makes them super nervous to be around those people. They are normally calm, but they may turn aggressive around other aggressive people. Mars in Pisces men have a tendency to reflect the people around them. They spend much of their time dreaming and they are artsy individuals rather than ambitious. They don’t want anyone shoving them, but they may appreciate a light push or some support when it comes to reaching their goals. They are more motivated when they have someone to back them up. They also need a lot of time alone. They have moments where they really want to be around their partners and moments where they don’t to be around anyone. This may not mean they don’t love their partners, they just need time alone to recharge and figure out their next plan of action in life.

This man always feels a spark between Jupiter, the planet of expansion, optimism, and abundance, and Neptune, the planet of imagination, dreams, and delusions. This man needs the optimism from Jupiter to keep going in life. Without it, he often feels defeated. Jupiter gives him everything, saving him from himself, and he never wants for anything. Jupiter offers him a chance to move out of an ordinary existence. Jupiter offers him many different experiences. At the same time, Neptune’s dreamy nature is super stimulating. When dreaming of all that he can do, it excites him in ways nothing else can. He doesn’t care what anyone says, he desires Neptune and longs to make his own dreams come true through him. Neptune brings out his creative potential. However, neither relationship is very realistic.

They don’t approach the ones they like easily. They always seem a little nervous and shy. They may be indirect. They may send secret gifts, may spend a lot of time the person they like, and may try to find common ground. Actually finding the words (and the courage) to ask someone out may take forever. They may end up getting a friend to help them out a bit. If the person they like is nice and quiet, they will find it easier to approach the individual. Usually, their approach is quiet and smooth. They are simple about asking someone out. They may buy flowers. They may promise the world for the people they are interested in.

When they take individuals on a date, they like to be comfortable and isolated. They don’t like too much commotion. They may still like to do fun things, just alone with their dates. Still, they may not prefer to take too many risks unless they are really comfortable with their dates. If their dates make them feel extremely comfortable, they will do anything for that person! They tend to like going to places they can “escape”. They may like the movies because it’s dark and usually quiet. They may enjoy isolated dinners or quiet picnics in the park. They may enjoy going to a museum on an empty day. They may enjoy a concert or music festival. They may pick their dates up for a motorcycle ride to nowhere. They really want to feel like the harsh world melts away when out with their dates. They are generally quiet guys, so they don’t have to try to hard to have good manners. But they get nervous when trying to remember to be chivalrous and may be clumsy as a result.

They may feel all men are awkward in relationships. They may feel most guys want to “escape” from the world (possibly through t.v. or video games). They may not feel men are as strong as they “act”. They would feel uncomfortable around men who think differently, though they wouldn’t be surprised to find differences in the world. They tend to see things in people others don’t often see.

Male Sexuality: These men have many different fantasies in their minds. They want sex to be like in their dreams, favorite movies, and/or in porn. They may be disappointed in the real world and may constantly be dissatisfied sexually as a result. These men may move from partner to partner trying to find the ideal sexual partner only to discover that it takes work to find a sex partner that is “ideal”. For one, communication is important. People can’t read another person’s mind. Second, in reality, everyone has needs and different body types (and functions). They may not see this scenario realistically (especially if they watch porn), which causes the disappointment.

Sexually, they are all about pleasing their partners and being pleased. They are open to all sorts of sexual experiences. They may even be interested in really eccentric sexual practices, like S&M. They may have secret desires that they would like to unleash. The best sex partner for them is someone who makes their dreams come true.

If you like a man who is sweet, compassionate, easy-going, and artistic, you will love these men. If you don’t like men who dream their lives away, looking for someone driven, prefer someone more assertive, or you consider yourself a more practical type, they may not be the man for you. If you have Neptune aspecting Mars or Mars in the 12th house, you may relate to this description. Pisces is ruled by Jupiter and Neptune, so your Jupiter and Neptune signs will alter your expression.  You can read the description of your Jupiter and Neptune signs within this page. For example, if you have Mars in Pisces, Jupiter or Neptune in Aries, you can read Mars in Aries to see if it sounds more familiar to you. Any planets or house placement cusps in Aries or Scorpio will be affected by this planet.

Who is SHE and What Does She Expect From YOUR Relationship? By the signs (Feminine Identity)

14 Mar

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”?


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 a woman’s 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 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!

It’s not that these women can’t be “girly” (with some people’s interpretation of “girly” being someone who likes clothes, make-up, cooking, and romance). It’s just that their way of expressing themselves as a “girl” may come across a little too strong, dramatic, or too loose, which seems to actually be in far contrast to the social standards set for women in our society. One thing is for certain: these women often break social rules without even trying! In this way, they are leaders who are not as “controlled” by society as other women are. Still, they struggle to “fit in” with the world’s idea of feminine or with the world’s idea on how a woman should behave.

You may find some of them to be really tough and independent. They may be competitive, aggressive, and energetic. They may be athletic and maybe a little tomboyish. Some of these women may even seem much tougher and more active than men! Even if they are not athletic, they respect athleticism and strength in others. They may enjoy competitive video games as well. These ladies can easily be one of the guys and may have quite a few male buddies. This could make more insecure men uncomfortable. They are also quite brave and can be dare-devilish. They never want anyone to think of them as weak.

Unlike most women, they don’t feel as strong of a need to conform. This allows them to be original in their thoughts and actions. In this way, they are able to compete “in a man’s world”. On another note, they can be too girly. Mars gives them a passionate and forceful nature. Sometimes, this doesn’t come in the form of being rough, but they may have a passion for fashion, make-up, style, beauty, or anything else girly! Barbie the doll is said to have Venus in Aries and she has come to be an icon of intense girlishness, materialism, vanity, and female sexuality. Of course, for a woman to be too involved in these sorts of things is bad in most societies. It breaks the rule that “girls should be modest”. Somehow, Venus in Aries have learned to separate “feminine” interests from actually being delicate and soft. Venus in Aries women are hardly ever soft or delicate though they may be interested in the same things other women are. Everything Venus in Aries women do is done with flair. They tend to be avante-garde and bold in their tastes and attitude.

No matter if these women are extremely tomboyish or extremely girlish, most Venus in Aries women can’t help but be the “alpha personality” among their female peers. Sometimes these women challenge other women and produce a spirit of rivalry and competition. They could equally challenge women to do better and be better in a broader sense.

They can be daring flirts (i.e. boyfriend thieves), which can irritate some women. Venus in Aries women are generally more confident than most women and jump on opportunities other women lose out on due to being shyer. They are also quite brassy and boastful at times. They must be careful of creating a “civil war” among women. Some of them are mostly independent and have a hard time mingling with other women, feeling they hold them back. These women always have a few male buddies hanging around. Sometimes, they are too active for the kind of activities other women enjoy.

Still, these women are not afraid to make new friends. They usually initiate friendships with people, never afraid to give away their heart. They can be generous and usually jump to their friends’ rescue when needed. Their problem is maintaining their friendships. They tend to be better at making new friends than keeping the ones they already have. They will better stay with friends that keep up with their independent natures. They don’t want to be controlled and have no qualms with letting friends down if they don’t want to do something. If it’s not something they are comfortable with, they will choose being themselves over doing something just to support their friends. For instance, if they dislike wearing dresses, they may not wear one to their friends’ wedding–even if they are one of the bridesmaids! They have a hard time being told what to do and can be headstrong in this way. They won’t even let their friends control them. They would rather not be in a friend’s wedding. Some people may consider them selfish and defiant. They see it as being honest. They really want to be comfortable inside, but it’s difficult because it conflicts with their desire to keep their loved ones. They often get caught between doing something they want to do and pleasing others.

Despite some Venus in Aries women’s issues with other women, there are those Venus in Aries women who unite instead of divide! Venus in Aries women are heroic. They often start trends and pave the road for other women to follow. I wouldn’t be surprised if one of the first women to buy a pair of pants had Venus in Aries! Their archetype is the warrior, so they are the first to fight for the rights of all women. And they just aren’t all talk! They are ruled by the planet of action after all. Women can’t help but admire these ladies! Before any barrier is broken, someone has to break it. Just leave it to them to do it.

Their fellow female peers may find them to be the best cheerleaders. They are good at encouraging their friends and brightening up their friends’ days. Other females think they are fun to be around, though their friends may also think these women can be too much to handle at times. Any partner who ends up with a Venus in Aries may feel taken for a roller coaster ride. Every day may feel dramatic. Partners may feel that these ladies have fully taken charge, and they have no choice but to follow. Partners may willingly follow because Venus in Aries women are easily magnetic and exciting. These wild women will have you living la vida loca.

To learn more, The Magnetism, Charm, and Attractive Power of Venus is a good article.

The most beautiful things about these women are their bravery, confidence, sex appeal, and originality. Everyone thinks they’re fun and exciting. They redefine beauty on every level. With Aries leading the way, anyone can feel beautiful! They seek to challenge our usual perceptions of beauty and they seek to come out blooming like a rose.

Relationships: Because of their natures, you can only imagine what they expect from relationships. It’s definitely not what we would all consider “traditional”. These passionate women are looking for a relationship to be passionate, exciting, and fun. They demand to be noticed and doted upon. They often don’t have the patience to care if their partners are satisfied or not. But they want a partner who is eager to please! They can be a little selfish and may expect their partners to cooperate with them without any rejection or objection. They often don’t feel it’s their responsibility to cater to someone else’s needs, and in fact, dislike needy partners. No matter what, these women want to maintain their independence and freedom. So, they prefer a partner who is on the same page with them on anything they do. For them, a partner is a side-kick. Despite these selfish tendencies, however, the mission of finding a new partner is thrilling and exciting for them! So during the courting stages, if they’re the one interested, these women tend to be generous, giving their all to get who they want.  They don’t mind being the pursuant one because they are not afraid to make the first move (though this depends on their Mars sign). Still, they love the chase even more and may play hard to get. They can be tough to impress when they are being pursued and it may be better to let them do the pursuing. These women can be super affectionate in the first stages of a relationship, but may cool off later. And if they aren’t with a partner who can spice things up, they will be bored. It’s best for these women to be with a partner that has a lot in common with them because things definitely have to go their way for them to be happy. However, they are impulsive and often don’t take the time to get to know a person before jumping in a relationship. If they like you, you have their full attention. When they don’t, they almost don’t realize you exist.

They are constantly falling in love with Mars, the planet of action, desire, and aggression. There is always something exciting and thrilling about Mars. He’s masculine and challenging. He’s an excellent defender and protector. But woa, can it make for a tense relationship! The fighting and drama hardly ever stop. Things always get a little steamy.

When they like someone, they tend to dress really sexy or flamboyant, with bold colors.  They are not afraid to show off their goodies. Many have athletic bodies, and want to flaunt it! They are power dresses, expressing originality and luxury. After a while, however, they tend to dress more comfortably. For them, they are on-the-go types. They don’t have the patience for the kind of pampering that is usual of most women. They often don’t feel like they should have to dress to impress a partner and they think a partner should love them for who they are. If they do dress up, they normally don’t do this to be attractive to a partner. Most times, they do this to gain the admiration (and envy) of other females. These women pay extra attention to their head. They may be dressed casually for a date sometimes, but you know it’s serious if their hair is nice, they’re wearing make-up, and they have the perfect earrings on to highlight their skin.

The perfect date for them would be something fun or active. A little competition may be fun, like maybe bike racing in a park or playing laser tag. They don’t mind dinner if they are treated like the only person in the room. Whatever they do, it must be fresh and new or at least feel that way. The best compliment would be to acknowledge how fun she is or acknowledge her accomplishments. Don’t talk about your feelings on the date and don’t EVER bring up your ex. Again, she wants this to feel new and fresh. She wants to feel like the first girl in your life.  If you want to get them a gift, find out what they have been desiring for a long time and get it for them. They respond to the color red.

When these women aren’t interested in someone, they are straight-forward and honest, even rude about it. It’s hard to get their attention because they are super independent and always on-the-go. Their love interests have to keep up. It can be hard to catch them or tie them down. Their flirting style is daring and direct. You’ll know when they like you. They will probably just tell the object of their desire how attractive they are right from the beginning! They tend to do the pursuing anyhow. They love nothing more than the rush of a new relationship. That’s when their charms are activated. The excitement shows on their faces and all over their bodies! They may come on a little too strong, but you’ll never be wondering.

What Venus Means in Your Chart

These women feel that all women want to be in charge of their relationships. They may feel it’s normal for a man to do whatever a woman asks of him. They may feel this would make him a gentlemen. They may feel all women agree. They may believe women are strong enough to do things on their own and believe that women should be independent. They believe women should learn to love themselves first, and love a partner only after themselves. They may be surprised to find that this is not the way all women think. On the other hand, it may not be hard for them to understand that not every woman thinks like them as they value themselves as “original”.

Female sexuality: As far as their sexuality, they are always passionate and exciting! They are unrestricted, always feeling young and fresh. They even prefer sex to cuddling and long talks about their “feelings”. Slut-shame them all you want. Condemn them. They are fire-starters in the bed room and in any social scene. They don’t care if others get burned by their open displays of sexiness and they own up to any sexuality they stand for (whether heterosexual, homosexual, or bi-sexual). Because of this, it’s hard for others to warm up to these women. They are just too far ahead of the times. For awhile, most people may try to censor their sense of self-expression. They are just too bold sexually. The way they go about expressing themselves, which often seems a little confrontational with an “I-dare-you” attitude, makes it difficult for them to be well-received by others. They usually challenge social norms. They don’t wait for those people who are more comfortable with tradition to catch up. They are proud of their sexuality. In fact, these women ARE the sexiest women in the Zodiac! They tend to do whatever it takes to beat out the competition, too. They have the potential to explore sexual territory most women feel “dirty” exploring!

Yet, after awhile, things cool down for them. When this occurs, they often give up trying to go the extra mile to please a partner. Their partner would have to keep things exciting and fresh. If not, they often do move on to the next exciting adventure. And trust me, they are not afraid to start over. These women could also take the opposite extreme and be a challenge sexually. They may be hard to impress and difficult to bring to the bedroom. They may also reject someone sexually if they feel it comes with baggage and that their freedom will be taken from them. Sexually, they may prefer to make the first move. Regardless, it’s their choice and they feel they are fully in control. They are still never shy of the subject when presented with it.

The easiest way to arouse these women is to come on to them strong. Passion gets their blood rushing. These women get aroused much faster than other women. They can arouse themselves to action. They like it a little wild and rough. Observe their Mars signs to really understand their sex drive, as they fully explore “Martian” sexuality while still maintaining their femininity. They often like to take the lead. They put in a little more effort than other women. All you have to do is lay down. They can handle it all.

If you’re someone who loves to have fun, someone who finds leadership in a woman sexy, and are a little playful and youthful, this is the woman for you. If you have issues with women taking the lead, if you’re a traditional person, still hung up with your ex, or struggling with emotions, or unsure with your masculinity, look elsewhere. If you have Venus aspecting Mars, you may relate to this description. Venus in 1st house natives may relate to it a bit as well. Aries is ruled by Mars, so your Mars sign will alter your expression. You can read the description of your Mars sign within this page. For example, if you have Venus in Aries, Mars in Taurus, you can read Venus in Taurus to see if it sounds more familiar to you. Any planets or house placement cusps in Taurus or Libra will be affected by this planet.

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.

They tend to enjoy what is traditionally considered feminine like cooking, dressing up, and socializing, even if what they “cook” is pizza, what they wear are jerseys and jeans, and their social circle is small. They tend to act feminine too, especially if they’re around someone they like. They can be sweet and well-mannered. They are generally down-to-earth, laid-back, and simple. These women love to indulge in simple pleasures such as good food, comfortable but tasteful clothing, and be surrounded by all of their favorite things. They are cozy, comfortable women.

Still, they may care a little too much about their appearance. If they are attractive, they own it and feel it makes them feel valuable. They may come across conceited, but they are just really comfortable in their own skin. If they don’t feel as physically attractive, they may have low self-esteem, be easily jealous of others, and feel insecure in relationships. It’s hard for them to just focus on the beauty within. They feel more pressure in their lives to feel beautiful. They may believe that life is easier for the beautiful people. They also think life is easier for the rich. These women respect others who are rich, popular, have their own personal style, and physically attractive. In this way, these women can be superficial. It’s hard for them to understand femininity outside of the social idea of feminine. Still, they would like femininity to have a broader definition in the world if it will make others more comfortable in their skin. While they do admire someone who lives a life of ease, they admire others who are strong, natural, and enduring despite difficulties. They tend to be fond of natural beauty.

Taurus is a common sense, tried-and-true kind of sign. They tend to be solid citizens in society. If they don’t feel feminine enough, they feel awkward. These women believe that being feminine is something amazing, and they usually have no desire to change that. You won’t see them at the fore-front of any movements on purpose. If they do fight for any rights, it’s not their intention to change people. Mostly, they just want all women to feel good being the woman they are. Most women think they are icons for all women because they are pillars of both strength and grace. Despite how easy-going these women seem, however, they are quite stubborn. It is hard to get them to try new things. They like to do the same things over and over. They are possessive of both their style, values, and identity. Thus, they hate when people dress like them, talk like them, or steal their thunder in any way. This is also why they resist trying new styles and accepting new values.

They generally have casual hobbies and simple tastes. They can be quite predictable. But hey, why change? Regardless, these women stick to the standards women have always upheld for years, and usually this does wonders for their social and romantic life. Around fellow female peers, they are charming. Women love to be around them. It’s hard not to like them or respect them. They are easy to talk to and the calm in a storm. They can be a little expensive to be around though. They like hanging out at the most expensive and luxurious places. Friends may find them to be over-indulgent, ordering up everything on a menu or creating a long shopping list when friends ask what they want for their birthday. Friends may also find them to be possessive and easily jealous.

To learn more, The Magnetism, Charm, and Attractive Power of Venus is a good article.

They are the definition of beautiful. They are charming, easy-going, and down-to-earth. They have refined tastes and dress with luxury in mind. They are both strong and soft. They are career oriented and domestic. They can be serious and playful. There’s a lot coming from this woman.

Relationships: All of the above is important to consider if you want to date them. These women actually see themselves as “ladies” no matter how they act, and they expect to be treated as valuable as a shiny new car. They expect to be “bought”. This means they believe a partner should be willing to spend time, energy, and/or money for a woman they like. They like to spend a lot of time with someone they love. Though they don’t mind the little things a person does for them, they prefer something tangible. Any love you show must be shown in physical and/or material ways. They expect a relationship to be practical, affectionate, and stable. It’s not easy to get them to go out with you, but when they do, they aren’t out to play games. They put a lot of effort into dating (which they don’t often do for just anybody) and want someone they know is going to stick around. When dating, it takes a while for them to give to their partners. They usually get so comfortable with receiving. But when they do finally decide they like someone, and when they finally commit, they will do anything to please. They love to shower their lovers with physical things. Every bit of love they show is clearly visible. They are extremely affectionate and sensitive to touch. But don’t touch them inappropriately. They prefer hugs and kisses. They are quite cuddly. They love to chill with their partners. They are not afraid to tell their lovers “I Love You”.

These ladies are constantly falling in love with Venus, the planet of love, beauty, and art. Venus is  gorgeous, graceful, and peaceful. She’s soft and sensual to the eye and touch. Of course, this is only on the superficial level. She may be virtuous, but her inner qualities are hardly highlighted. Still, she is picture-perfect. These ladies can hardly resist her beauty, charms, and sense of aesthetic.

Usually, these ladies dress comfortably. They like luxury items, but they prefer something that they are comfortable wearing. They usually have their own unique style and want their partners to appreciate it. They want partners who appreciate the same things in them they appreciate in themselves. They don’t like their sense of style to be criticized. That is something that will hurt them deeply. Being attractive is that important to them. If a potential partner doesn’t like the way they dress, they feel the partner doesn’t like them for who they are. And they will not change their style for anyone. They may refine their look, but never change it. They have a classic and modest look about them. They tend to wear the same kinds of clothes for years, developing a personal and identifiable look. They don’t feel like they have to look up-to-date or overly sexualized in order to be attractive. They tend to be good at creating their own fashions and may show an interest in sewing or style designs. They hope to be sexy to someone without going overboard to prove it. Sexy for them is something that is natural and personal. When they like someone, they dress their best without losing their sense of comfort. They try to wear things that are comfortable, luxurious, and/or beautiful. When going on dates, they put a lot of time and effort into their appearance. Still, they like to be comfortable in their skin.

Their idea of a date is usually traditional: a nice dinner, in a nice, quiet, comfortable place. Make sure the food is good and the seats are comfortable. The scenery must be beautiful. They may also enjoy nature walks and a picnic. They expect their partners to pull out their best manners. No drunken outbursts apply. People with tempers rub them the wrong way. When you’re in her presence, you must act polite. For them, being polite is someone who is not only charming but very careful about their actions and speech. The perfect compliment is to compliment their appearance. But do it in a respectful way. Call them “lovely” or “beautiful” rather than “hot” and “sexy”. Compliment their grace and charms. If you want to give them a gift, make sure it’s something tasteful or pleasing to the eye. It must be both beautiful and useful. The more money you spend on an item, the better. But they would rather something beautiful and useful than something expensive and useless. It must be something they actually like. It’s best to ask them what they want before getting them something. They don’t care for surprises. They respond to warm colors like red and soft colors like pink, mint green, or pale blue. It really depends on the weather and where they live. If they live in colder climates, they are drawn to colors that make them feel warm. If they live in warmer climates, cooler colors appeal to them.

When these women are not interested, they will be honest but remain calm, composed, and polite when they reject someone. The challenge many suitors meet is trying to make them feel secure. These women require physical and material stability. They want their love lives to be stable. Partnering up is not just a fun activity for them. If you want them, you have to provide. When they do like someone, they flirt through physical touch and material things. They often hug and touch anyone they like. They are affectionate. They pay extra attention to their appearance. They are pretty simple and direct when they like someone. There are no guessing games with these ladies. They also like to buy little gifts or cook dinner for someone they like.

What Venus Means in Your Chart

These women may feel that all women want to be pampered and treated like “ladies”. They believe all women deserve respect, and their idea of respect is being doted upon and waited on hand-and-foot. They believe all women want to be whined and dined. They may believe all women want to feel attractive. They feel all women feel insecure when they don’t feel attractive. They believe all women are more affectionate than men and need to be hugged and kissed. For them, this is common sense knowledge for men to consider. However, though most women want respect, they may be surprised to find that not all women have the same ideas about what that respect really means. It’s hard for these stubborn ladies to fathom people thinking outside of the box in this matter. It just complicates things too much for them.

Female Sexuality: While these women don’t mind potential partners admiring their appearance, they do not want to be treated like “sex objects”. No matter how sexy they appear or passionate they seem, they are not overly sexual (no matter what Mars sign they have). They do everything in moderation and that includes sex. As a “lady”, they feel that sex is not something that should be given up easily. For them, it’s a pleasurable activity that should be shared between lovers. They are the women who conform to social standards and live by it. This usually protects them from players. They believe social rules were designed for a reason. And they are about their safety and security first and foremost. They are very good at controlling their sexual urges. In fact, it’s hard to turn them on in the first place. Anyone that wants to do something with them will have to be charming, considerate, attractive, patient, and comfortable to be around because it’s hard for them to feel sexual pleasure otherwise. They have very high standards. Once they do have sex, they like it to be normal (no out-of-the-box routines unless Venus aspects Uranus). They generally tend to like the same positions over and over. If it makes them feel good, why change it? They prefer foreplay to the actual act, but they really just love to feel good. These women really love sex, they just don’t love to do it with just anybody.

Even if they did get turned on easily, had random sex, and tried dirtier positions, they may feel used, washed up, and worthless, especially if they aren’t in a committed relationship. This will make them more insecure and jealous of other women. They will be more possessive of their partners and cause more arguments. They really want to be as valuable to their partners for as long as possible. They want to keep their sexuality as much to their chest before giving up their bodies. This is how much they value themselves. They really want to feel comfortable sexually. An insecure Venus in Taurus will sleep around more, looking for love in all the wrong places and trying to boost their self-esteem.

They may have their reservations about having an open sexuality, but with the right physical touches (literally), they can fully indulge in the pleasure of the moment. This will be most easiest for them in a committed, long-term, solid relationship. Some may even require marriage before having sex. If you want to arouse them, take your time, be soft, physical, and secure. They are extremely seductive. They can make any partner feel at ease. With their soft guidance, love-making feels just right. They like it rather hard, but they like to go slowly and fully experience the moment. They aren’t active participants in the sexual act. They prefer to play the passive or “dominated” role, depending on their Mars sign. They prefer to receive pleasure than give it, but they are capable of giving it as well. They work with care.

If you love a woman who is traditional, can cook, is comfortable to be around, and is uncomplicated, she is the one for you. If you want some excitement, want to experiment, not looking for long-term commitment, if you’re cheap or broke, or looking for passion and depth, look elsewhere. If you have a lot of aspects to Venus, you may relate to this description. If you have Venus in the 2nd house, you may also relate to this description. Venus is in domicile here; this is her home. Any planets or house cusps in Taurus or Libra will be affected by this position.

Venus in 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 make-up 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.

But no matter what, everyone is a friend of the Gemini. They have a new friend for every occasion, though some long for a best friend they can do any crazy thing with. Even with a best friend, they like to be free to make new friends. They don’t form deep connections and often flit from one party, clique, or group to the next. Their social identities often change as a result. They may be Gothic one moment, a hip hop diva, or the peppy cheerleader the next! Venus in Gemini women always have stories about “that time they were…” Gemini has to be careful of being phony and fickle. Venus in Geminis can be independent, but they need people around them to keep their nervousness and boredom at bay. So, they may care about fitting in with the other girls a lot. Their fellow female peers may find them to be fun, charming, and popular. They always seem to wear the latest clothes, seem to have gone to the latest event, and have all the latest technology. They are always up-to-date. They should be careful that they don’t give the impression that they are busy-bodies and wannabes.

The most beautiful qualities about these women are their stylish clothing, friendly nature, youth (both physical and personality), their flirtatiousness, their liveliness, and, best of all, their brains. They can be beautiful to anyone because they adapt so well to different circumstances. They are not beauty without brains, but they aren’t brains without beauty, either.

Relationships: Now that you know who they are as women, you should keep in mind that this will affect what they expect out of relationships. Really, they are kind of fickle. While they may say they want to let loose and have fun in a relationship, they may also like traditional romance. They really do want the dating experience, especially if their friends have partners. Whatever their partners do for them, they want to be able to tell their friends all about it! It would be best to keep romance interesting and engaging for them. Though they may not care to be treated delicately (and may be down-right juvenile in relationships), they do want a partner that is “socially aware”. So they care that their partner is chivalrous, considerate, attractive, and a pleasant conversationalist. It’s a turn-off when their partner talks about the same things all the time, when a partner is always angry at someone, or when their partner only talks about themselves. They like a partner to make things fun while still treating them like a lady. They don’t like to be embarrassed. Everyone knows them and their social life is very important to them. It’s good to be fun and unique, but in a normal sort of way. Treat them respectfully, but be honest. They really hate liars. Anything you tell them will be repeated, so they don’t like to find out they’ve been spreading a lie. They don’t like partners with bad tempers.

These girls appreciate a lover who is attentive. Pay attention to every little thing they say and do. Exchange with them in a conversation. These women tend to reward lovers with a fun time. They make great lovers, but they are also great friends. These women are quite attentive themselves. They are communicative and flexible, so they tend to know the right thing to do to please a partner.

They are gadget queens, so they love to text their partners. Social Media updates will include information about them and their lovers, so they want a partner who is social and not afraid of some attention. They usually want to share their happiness with the world. Being as social and popular as they are, they tend to have many suitors. Often times, they have a hard time deciding the right one for them. So make sure you bring your “A-game” when you ask them out. Venus in Gemini women must be careful of milking men and stringing them along just to get things for free, like a free meal or movie ticket. If you’re not sincerely interested, decline these offers, no matter how tempting they may be.

These women are always falling in love with Mercury, the planet of communication, intellect, and reason. The idea of hearing and chatting about new information really stimulates them. They are eager to learn new things. Things move fast when in a relationship with Mercury. It can be very logical and hardly physical or emotional.

These women are always stylish. They can be down-right shop-a-holics! When getting ready for a date, they HAVE to wear something new! They want attention, so they make sure they wear something no one else has worn yet or they wear something that will make them stand out. They are natural flirts, so they keep their hair in a style they can flip just right. They are mani and pedi freaks, so their nails and feet are usually always polished. They tend to like loose tops, so they may wear tanks or off-shoulder dresses with some smoking heels. Whatever they wear, they will look fabulous. They like to show off their outfits on social media, so they make sure to buy things people will like. They will even do this for a partner. If they know someone they like prefers a certain appearance, they’re not against dressing in a way that will please the potential partner. They tend to love bright colors, particularly yellow.

Their idea of a perfect date is going somewhere they’ve never been before. Wherever they go, there must be both food and entertainment. This keeps them interested and engaged. It also gives you two something to talk about later. Compliment little things you’ve noticed about them. This means you must pay attention. Let them know how amazing their nail designs are or how nice they look in their heels. They love to flirt, so be a smooth talker. Compliments work wonders with this lady. The perfect gift would be something thoughtful and special, something they can show their friends, something cool and up-to-date. Make sure the date is really great. If it’s not, they will let their friends and everyone else know how boring that date was. That would be embarrassing.

When they aren’t interested, it mostly shows on their faces. They will look bored and suddenly become the “quiet” Gemini. They may also try to avoid you. Some will outright tell someone they’re not interested. Others may just ask to remain friends instead. The biggest challenge for suitors is easing their boredom. They hate falling into routine. When they like someone, they have a sparkling liveliness and they are chatty. They tend to charm the individual with their witty and seductive flirting. They tend to focus on their appearance more. They will often find any reason to strike up a conversation and will cleverly plan to fall in step with the individual at events.

What Venus Means in Your Chart

They tend to think all girls want to experience dating. They may think all girls want someone who is sweet, thoughtful, considerate, and fun. They think girls want to have fun! They may think all girls like shopping, talking, and getting their nails done. They may be surprised to learn that not every girl is like this.

Female Sexuality: Sexually, these women are usually open and curious. Still, it depends on their friendship circle. Sometimes, these women don’t want to be seen as sluts. Their social image means a lot to them. At the same time, they are curious and want their partners to think of them as really sexy. They are also mischievous and tend to tease. They especially like to show off in front of exes or girls that have crushes on their crushes. They can be really competitive in that way. They tend to be experimental and open-minded.

The easiest way to get them aroused is through open communication and seductive flirting. In the bedroom, they are receptive to all styles. But they don’t really have much depth sexually and prefer not to put their emotions in it. They can be chatty and flirty even in the bedroom.

If you love a woman who is fun, someone open-minded, well-dressed, and popular, this is the woman for you. If you like quiet women, someone who is traditional, someone content and practical, look elsewhere. If you have Venus aspecting Mercury, you may relate to this description.

Venus in 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.

Venus in Cancer women are more than just “girls”. They carry the overall universal principle of womanhood with them, often passed down from their mothers. Their sense of femininity is instinctual and biologically motivated. They tend to be drawn to what has always been associated with womanhood: cooking, cleaning, and caring for the home and family. In this way, their idea of femininity is something that is very natural to their natural-born natures. Many of them love the idea of bearing or raising children. These women tend to look really good pregnant. In fact, they look at their best when they become mothers! It’s often hard for other women to maintain their “beauty” when they have children. These women make it look effortless! Part of the reason is because they don’t see children as a chore. They love caring for others.

Because of their strong association with the home, they have a girl-next-door appeal. They are like buried treasure. They are quite shy and tend to hide their charms and beauty behind a hard outer shell. But to those who look closer, they will see the hidden gem buried underneath. They aren’t flirtatious or flamboyant types, but they will care for you, pamper you, and understand you in ways no other woman would.

Some of them like shopping, getting their nails done, and socializing, but most like to pamper themselves in the comforts of their home and like to chill with close family and friends rather than party all night with random strangers. They are generally good girls. Their mother’s influence is strong in their lives and their relationship with her is usually a pleasant one. They may even resemble their mother. They look beautiful and so do all the women in their families! Even though some Cancer women cater to their appearance, they are never too concerned with their appearance. They are more concerned with developing inner beauty. Moon is the planet that helps us focus on the hidden. They believe beauty is truly skin-deep.

To add to their sweet, affectionate, and kind nature, they are also really down-to-earth, funny, and good with business when you get to know them. These women often spend a lot of time at home, so they end up doing a lot of reading, internet surfing, playing video games, watching movies or tv shows, and/or brushing up on art or home improvement projects. They become quite skilled, cultured, and intelligent as a result. Still, they are romantic and easily swept off their feet. They can be dreamers and can be unrealistic. But they are the best friends anyone can have.

Women tend to find them to be motherly figures. Most women easily relate to them because they never seem to be putting on airs or showing off and they introduce themselves as real girls with real strengths and real weaknesses. They are protective of their friends. Women respect that. They believe in sticking together and uniting with their fellow ladies rather than cat fighting and back-biting (though they have been guilty of these things). Around female peers they don’t know, they can be shy, moody, and defensive. They can be awkward socially. But once you get to know them, they are warm and friendly. Their partners often feel safe and secure with them.

To learn more, The Magnetism, Charm, and Attractive Power of Venus is a good article.

The most beautiful traits of this lady are her sweet and affectionate nature, her caring and domestic aura, and her romantic and dreamy side. She will really care for you and love you. Her beauty is quiet and modest, but authentic. She makes a good friend, girlfriend, wife, and mother. She was raised to be a beautiful person inside and out. She works hard to make everyone’s dreams come true.

Relationships: Because these girls are sweetie-pies, their relationship expectations are quite romantic. They can fall head over heels over someone and develop deep crushes that almost feel like love. When they are actually in love, they can be moody, especially if that person hasn’t noticed them yet. For this reason, it’s best they have a partner that is willing to commit to a long-term relationship. They are not casual daters. They pour their heart and soul into someone they love. They meditate on someone, observe, and form close attachments to people. They don’t often have elaborate expectations of relationships other than for someone to care about them, to love them, to be affectionate, to remember their birthdays and remember them on holidays. They want someone to care for them when they are hurt or sick. They like that “puppy” love. Love for them is something out of romantic literature or a movie. They want to be treated like they are special and they want a partner who is completely into them. They love to share and exchange their feelings with their partner. This means they need a partner who is in touch with their feelings. They don’t want anyone making them feel shame about their feelings and need someone who understands them. They are usually drawn to partners that have an understanding of women. They may also like partners that make them feel safe, secure, and protected. They can be a big moody mess sometimes, and they need a partner that will reassure them. Partners definitely can’t be afraid of emotions.

These women are constantly falling in love with the Moon, the luminary associated with emotions, instincts, and habits. When with Luna, everything seems to move in a fluctuating motion. Feelings pour over and our human desires take over.  This woman often can’t describe our attraction to the moon. That’s how instinctive it really is. This relationship with her can be full of passion and love or it can be a tumultuous affair. Regardless, she loves it because she is used to it. It makes this woman feel safe to know that no matter what happens, she can always return to the Moon.

These women can be caring and understanding themselves-unless you tell them about themselves or tell them something that hurts them personally.  These women are intuitive. Sometimes, they tend to read into things a little too much, but most times they are right on the mark. They can find a back-handed insult in a minute. And they are sensitive to criticism. But if you want to talk about someone else, they will be understanding and supportive.

They will do anything for someone they love. They aren’t necessarily material girls, but they are all about security and providing for their loved ones. They can be a little clingy. When they fall for someone, they want the love and attention of that partner all the time. It’s not that they can’t be independent, but they just love being around someone that loves them.

Some may have deep insecurities about their appearances or charms, often thinking that they aren’t as attractive as other girls. Many may have stories of being overlooked. This is because they are shyer than most. So, when they get with someone that finds them to be special, they hold on for dear life. Of course, if they sense any indifference in this partner, they can get highly upset.

They do NOT tolerate players. These women don’t even like being “second best” to exes. They don’t want a partner who has had sex with too many women, especially if he wasn’t married to any of them. That would make them insecure. They don’t even want to hear about your sexual adventures. Unfortunately, they can be so swept up in loving someone that they give their lovers the benefit of the doubt and try to assume the best before the worst until it’s too late. And when it’s too “late” (that moment they found out you were running game), look out! Their crabby pincers will come out! Venus in Cancer women can have ferocious tempers because when they feel something, they just let it all out until they are satisfied.

These women don’t care much about appearance as much as inner beauty, as was mentioned before. They also don’t want a partner that is super physical. But when they like someone, they will still dress nicely for a nice date. They are creative with their style, too. However, they are still modest in the way they look. They aren’t flashy girls. They have no desire to get attention from anyone else in the room but the one they like. They still want to be accepted for who they are. Some tend to accentuate their breasts well by wearing dresses or tops with a sweetheart neckline. They never wear anything too revealing or provocative though. Their beauty colors are white and silver, though they also like to wear pink and purple (sweet colors).

Their idea of a perfect date is pretty simple. They just really want to spend some alone time with someone they like. They want little surprises like flowers or a little poem. They do like chivalry. Though they may not say it is mandatory, it is sure to impress them. Opening doors, pulling out chairs, and even feeding them are ways that make them feel special, protected, and safe. When it’s raining, pull out your umbrella or take off your coat and give it to her. If it’s muddy outside, walk on the edge of the sidewalk to protect her from being splashed. These are just suggestions on how to make her feel loved. Still, whether you do these things or don’t do these things, they really just want someone who sincerely cares. These women feel that anyone who cares about them will naturally do sweet things for them, just like that person would for their own mother, sisters, or anyone they care about. They can tell when someone is being sincere and when someone is just being nice with impure intentions. They like sincere compliments. They prefer sweet little compliments to vulgar or embarrassing compliments. Simple phrases like, “You look pretty” or “You smell really nice” go over really well with these ladies. They tend to be shy at first, but once they get comfortable, they can be chatty on dates. They look for someone who is sincerely paying attention to their conversation. If you want to get them a gift, something thoughtful, sweet, and from the heart would work. Show that you really care about them. If you really don’t care about them, it will show. This means you must pay attention to their conversations and remember the things they value, whether it’s a favorite teddy bear or a pair of shoes. Show them how well you’ve been paying attention to them.

When they aren’t interested, they will find it difficult to be direct about it. They are hardly ever that hard-nosed. They may write a note or ask a friend to speak on their behalf. They may try to avoid someone they don’t like rather than hurt their feelings. The challenge for suitors is trying to get these women to trust and open up. When these women finally open up about their feelings, they still feel vulnerable and insecure. They easily get a little jealous or insecure and may constantly break up and get back together with their lovers. When they like someone, they are super shy and awkward around the person, but they will be around the individual often. In fact, they may spend too much time with someone they like. They will be super thoughtful, remembering all the most important things in the other individual’s life. They remember that person’s birthday, their sister’s, and their mother’s! They will try to get close to the family. They may also want to introduce the person to their own family. Their whole family may know of their crushes and love interests! Just ask their parents. They can be obvious to those who pay attention.

What Venus Means in Your Chart

These women believe most stereotypes about women have some truth to it. They believe women are more emotional, more caring, more romantic, and care more about commitment than men do. They believe most women are secondary copies of their mothers. They believe women are more family-oriented and friendship-oriented than men. They do feel that women are more sensitive and need reassurance from their partners. They would be hugely surprised to find that these ideas are not shared by all women.

Female sexuality: Venus in Cancer women will do anything for the ones they love, but they are generally modest. When it comes to sexuality, it’s not unusual to find them waiting until marriage before getting involved with someone sexually. Still, if they feel they have found the one for them, they will easily be swept up sexually. No matter what, though, their sexuality is a private matter. They are not openly sexual or avante-garde in their sexual tastes. This doesn’t mean they’re not sexy. They can dress sexy and be flirty, but this will never be over-the-top. They are generally good girls with good hearts. They don’t play around sexually because their emotions get too tied up with the people that enter their lives. Sex and romance are often linked, so it’s a part of their romantic adventure or romantic fantasies. Romance is a key part of the sexual experience for her. These women only get involved sexually with partners that appeal to their emotions and feelings. If they are the more accepting, romantic, and maybe naive Venus in Cancer women, they may often find themselves with many romantic and sexual partners, thinking each partner is sweet and romantic based on the little things the partner did (sometimes finding out that these partners were not being sincere). If they aren’t the naive Venus in Cancer type, they will be the most challenging women and may be very particular about who they have sex with. The opinions of their family members, especially their mothers, are very important to these women. They often don’t want to do anything their families won’t be proud of.

The easiest way to get these women aroused is to create a romantic scenario, share your loving feelings, and to hug and kiss them. They often get emotional in the act and cling close to their partners. They prefer chest to chest action and like to be the submissive one. They often like to hug and cuddle afterwards. They look amazing in lingerie, especially pastels and silks.

If you love a woman who is sweet, caring, traditional, family-oriented, supportive, and maybe a little sensitive, you will love them. If you are a player, like your freedom and space, not romantic, not family-oriented, don’t want baggage, or not a fan of emotions, they are not the one for you. If you have Venus aspecting Moon, you may relate to this description. Venus in 4th house natives may relate to it a bit as well. Cancer is ruled by the Moon, so your Moon sign will alter your expression. You can read the description of your Moon sign within this page. For example, if you have Venus in Cancer, Moon in Leo, you can read Venus in Leo to see if it sounds more familiar to you. Any planets or house placement cusps in Taurus or Libra will be affected by this planet.

Venus in 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 ladies want to be the best ladies they can be. They hold themselves (and others) to very high standards. They love glamour and luxury. They tend to be trend-setters when it comes to beauty and fashion. When they step into the room, they make sure all heartbeats stop for a moment. They eat up the fact that there are several potential haters in the room. Some Venus in Leos may think people are simply jealous of them if someone doesn’t acknowledge their greatness! This is because when they do things, they really do it to catch people’s attention. When it comes to fashion and beauty, they can be a little dramatic and flashy. They really like the admiration of their fellow peers. They make sure they are at the center of every gathering, with their best foot forward at all times. They love to plan parties and outings.

Of course, Venus in Leo women have two feminine sides to themselves. On a casual basis, they can be outright tomboyish. Being a fire sign, they are known to be independent in thought and commanding in nature. This is where they disconnect from Venus. Many of these women can be outgoing and on-the-go. They are youthful and love to have fun. They usually strive to have successful lives and be the kind of people they can be proud of. They carry themselves with dignity and have a sense of class about them. They strive to be popular and attractive, but not necessarily loved (though that would be a plus). Everyone may not love them, but they want everyone to respect them.

When around their fellow female peers, there are two types. The first type can be bossy. They tend to be possessive of their group and jealous of anyone who tries to take over-though it’s hard for them to acknowledge these feelings. They seem competitive and self-absorbed at times. They are extremely popular and often have many female admirers as well as rivals and enemies. Sometimes, people really ARE jealous of them because they are so successful and attractive. They can be so attractive, their best friends’ boyfriends often crush on them! Other times, people really dislike them because they seem to think too much of themselves and they seem to care more about their own feelings than the feelings of others.

The other type doesn’t have the bossy or commanding streak. This type often gets attention without trying too hard. They are still successful and attractive, but they aren’t competitive about it. They are sweet and demure, often being bossed around. These types often want to be liked by everyone!

The loyal lion loves hard. They are truly loyal.

Around female peers, they tend to be magnetic, magnanimous, and just a joy to be around. They love to make others laugh and they can really liven a party. Life with them can be full of drama, but always exciting. Friends may find them to be generous, at the same time controlling. It can be hard to live up to their standards and they don’t want their friends embarrassing them. For this reason, they tend to be drawn to people that carry themselves with a sense of authority. Partners find them to be attractive, charming, and generous, but also pushy, bossy, and difficult to reason with.

To learn more, The Magnetism, Charm, and Attractive Power of Venus is a good article.

Their most beautiful qualities are their warmth, charisma, and strength. They have all of the qualifications of a true leader. They really have some strong attractive powers. They are usually physically attractive as well. These women know how to bring attention to themselves and know how to take control of a room. They are fun, humorous, and smiley. They are generous and kind as well, but they still manage to keep their lives in order. They are superwomen.

Relationships: With such a strong personality, being ruled by the ego-centered Sun, Venus in Leo women have high expectations for relationships and romance. Of all the women in the zodiac, these women really expect to be treated like queens. They would like to be the center of attention in their partners’ eyes. In this sense, they even get jealous when they have to share attention with family members or friends! They don’t mind their lovers having family and friends, but in most cases, they feel their feelings, thoughts, and actions come first. But they may not give their lovers the same courtesy, as they feel their family and friends are equally as important as their partners! Venus in Leo women often believe in loving themselves before loving someone else. I’ve found this to be more true of those that are still single than the ones that are actually in relationships. Those who are in relationships strive hard to please their lovers and gain their lovers’ respect. Regardless, though, all Venus in Leo women refrain from being dependent in relationships. They love relationships for the attention and adoration they can receive from it, but they really don’t need a partner to complete them. Venus in Leo women really are go-getters. These women usually have successful careers and a zest for life. A partner would be an addition to what already is a wonderful life. Venus in Leo women do want to feel special in the eyes of their partners. Sometimes, they just want anyone to see them as special. Even in relationships, they often get flattered when random people compliment them or flirt with them. Often times, they don’t like it when someone flirts with their partners or when their partners are flirting with someone else, but they feel it’s innocent when it’s their turn! Venus in Leo women are quite flirty.

They want to experience romance fully. They want every day to feel like the first day. Their view of relationships can actually be a little imbalanced. They believe it’s the man’s job to take care of his girlfriend, just like he would his wife. But sometimes, Venus in Leo women don’t hold to the wife and mother standard they place on their partners. No matter what though, they always remain giving and loving partners.

These women are constantly falling in love with the Sun, the luminary responsible for the self, main concerns, and vitality. This may seem a little self-centered at times. Really, they just really love themselves first and foremost, then they give a “complete” person over to their lovers. The Sun focuses on them and they bask in the light. It makes them feel alive to be in his presence. She comes first in the Sun’s life and he seeks to adjust his life to fit her needs.

What Venus Means in Your Chart

On a usual basis, they actually dress pretty casual. They are go-getter girls, as mentioned before. But when out with friends or lovers on special dates, they don’t want to be the frumpiest in the room. They will jazz themselves up or focus on their personal style a little more to look more distinct and attractive. On dates with someone they’ve been crushing on, they will really dress the part. They could be pretty casual on a day-to-day basis, but when they go on a date, their partners will NOT be disappointed. They make sure they are looking not only their best, but THE best. They tend to dress for the occasion, so this really depends on the occasion. They have too much pride to embarrass themselves by wearing the wrong attire to a certain event. Still, their style is usually unique and they are proud of the clothes they put together. Don’t you dare tell them they don’t look good. They look best in bold colors. They tend to look and feel amazing in sunset colors like orange, red, and yellow, and they usually top it off with shimmery gold or silver accessories.

Their idea of a perfect date is to have an all-around good time. Dinner, amusements, alone time with a lover, and planned lavishly for the whole day would be the best. They tend to be big kids at heart. They can enjoy a lovely dinner as much as a day at an amusement park. As long as it’s a fun day, full of plenty of romantic attention, they will enjoy it. These women are tons of fun on dates. Of course, they still expect their partner to be well-mannered, chivalrous, and attentive. The perfect gift would be something expensive and glamorous like a diamond ring or necklace. They want quality gifts rather than cheap ones. They respond well to flattery, so any compliment is a good one.

When these women aren’t interested, it’s hard to tell. Some like to be flattered and these types generally like the attention someone gives them. The only thing is they may never actually reach out to a person they aren’t interested in. Other types are more honest, but they try not to be mean. Then again, there are some types that are straight-forward and loud-mouthed when rejecting suitors. How they reject a suitor depends on what their pride will allow and who’s around them at the time (friends, family, etc). It can be difficult for suitors to win them fully. Though they love attention, they are often super involved in developing their own lives. They have strong creative potential and want to express that in the world. They really don’t need a partner to complete them. When they like someone, they will do anything to get the person’s attention. They will be dressed their very best, be at their most flirty, and be super jealous of any girl who comes around the individual. They make themselves obvious. They love the attention.

These women believe most women expect to be treated like queens. They believe that most women want to be adored and cherished. Still, they believe it’s important for women to love themselves and develop themselves. They feel women are capable of doing anything they set their minds to.  They may be surprised to learn that some women don’t agree with these ideas.

Female Sexuality: As sexy as these women may appear, these women place a high value on themselves and hold themselves to a very high standard. While they want potential partners and lovers to see them as the sexiest women in the world, they will not cheapen themselves by having sexual relations with a bunch of random partners. When they have sex, it must be worth it! And best believe they will be getting something out of it. These women have their reputation, their pride, their dignity to uphold, and they will not feel like used, worthless scum. These women easily feel the “shame” from slut-shaming. They build themselves up so much, they hate for anyone to tear them down or make them feel valueless. So, most of the time, these women are not only hard to please, but hard to get into your bedroom. Their partners must be offering something, making them feel like giving up their sexuality is worth the price.

These women are classy. They know how to be sexy without being slutty. If you were to come across a slutty Venus in Leo woman, she may be having sexual relations to build her confidence. The more insecure Venus in Leo women often sleep around with partners to make themselves feel more attractive. Some have many partners to feed an inflated ego. But in the end, they don’t want anyone calling them a slut. They don’t like feeling beneath anyone. In this way, they tend to care too much about others’ opinions.

There are some Venus in Leo women who use their sex appeal to get people to do what they want them to do. This, of course, depends on the Sun sign. Venus in Leo ladies should be careful that they don’t use their amazing power for evil. Leos are charismatic and influential. Don’t let these powerful qualities go to waste by manipulating and controlling others.

The easiest way to get them aroused is to flatter them. Let them take the lead and guide you. They usually want to give their best in the bedroom. They can be spontaneous, but they usually aren’t unusual sex partners. There are just some things they find “beneath” them. However, they love pleasure of all kinds. If it feels amazing, they are down for it. They usually like positions that make them the center of their partner’s attention.

If you love a woman who is fun, attractive, popular, warm, and generous, you will love these women. If you like to be the dominant partner, don’t like drama, passive rather than active, and not extremely romantic, they may not be the one for you. If you have Venus aspecting Sun, you may relate to this description. Venus in 5th house natives may relate to it a bit as well. Leo is ruled by the Sun, so your Sun sign will alter your expression. You can read the description of your Sun sign within this page. For example, if you have Venus in Leo, Sun in Virgo, you can read Venus in Virgo to see if it sounds more familiar to you. Any planets or house placement cusps in Taurus or Libra will be affected by this planet.

Venus in 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.

There are some Venus in Virgos who really internalize this. Some Venus in Virgo women end up being critical and particular about themselves. There are some Venus in Virgo women that are so insecure about their bodies, appearance, and charms that they will do whatever it takes to make it perfect. They will often look to other people to boost their self-esteem physically. Some will get plastic surgery, others will eat healthy and work out daily. Whatever the case is, some of them feel compelled to appear just right at times. When they feel like they don’t look just right in the eyes of others or they feel they look offensive, they will try to change it. On the other hand, if others criticize their looks, they may try to get others to change their perspective of beauty to fit their own perspective rather than changing who they are.

Many of these women can do well working with music, fashion, beauty, and self-esteem. They make great fashion and music critics. They do wonderful make-overs because they tend to enhance a person’s natural beauty. They work really hard on their own appearances, developing an understated personal style. They love to be pampered and may love spa dates as it is both relaxing and healthy for their skin.

On the other hand, Venus in Virgo women often reject superficiality, seeing it as holding them back or seeing it as something that divides women. They may want to look attractive but feel tired with having to justify their intense concentration on every detail when it comes to their appearance (since people may find some of them vain when they actually do try to look nice because they put so much effort into it). They want to be respected for doing important things, so they have a hard time being around others who seem to take the “easy route” by using their looks and false charms. Some of it can be stemming from insecurities with trying to fit in with a “superficial world” only to find it is difficult for someone with their modest nature. The real problem is they can be superficial, which is why the opinions, thoughts, and actions of others bother them so much. They must learn to understand the superficial world a little more. It has its uses and its disadvantages.

Venus in Virgo women aren’t the types to get nice things without hard work. Sometimes, they work so hard, they often never get to enjoy what they work for. It’s hard for them to accept gifts as well, especially if they don’t feel they “earned” it. Even though it’s great to work hard, sometimes Venus in Virgo must learn not to make life harder for themselves than it has to be. If you can find an easier way to get the job done or to get what you want, don’t be afraid to try it. Don’t feel guilty about it. Learn to ease up a little. They must learn that we work to live, not live to work. There’s no sense in working hard if you can’t enjoy the fruits of your labor. Don’t think that people will respect you less and don’t think that you have to respect yourself less if you settle with something easier. Venus in Virgo women have a hard time respecting others who take the easy route. They admire strength and modesty in others. They don’t often feel sympathy for those who don’t put forth an effort to reach their goals.

Most of these women are usually strong, intelligent, and hard-working. They tend to be at the fore-front of any women’s rights movements. They often aim to strengthen themselves and other women. They feel stronger in numbers. Some can be really particular and critical when they are comfortable. They are so intelligent, they tend to notice everything. Sometimes, this makes their mind work quicker than those around them and they can’t help but express these ideas.

Still, Venus in Virgo women are always considering how they come across to people. They have self-serving personalities, so they aim to please others. They truly do not want to offend people with poor hygiene, ill manners, and a dramatic personality. They can be clean and/or neat freaks. They want to feel normal and they want others to think of them as normal or “everyday”. If they are famous or popular, this actually gives them a humble quality. If they aren’t so popular or extroverted, this will make them fade into the background even more. They are quite down-to-earth in this way, never trying to get more attention than they deserve. Unfortunately, they do sometimes deserve more attention then they actually receive. These women are helpful, considerate, caring, innocent, funny, and real. They are good friends to have around. They are the kind of friends you can truly depend on. Yet, they are not often appreciated for all that they do. They tend to do things in quiet ways rather than showy.

They don’t like being show-offs so they often get overlooked for those who are. This makes them form a little resentment eventually. It’s not always that they envy the drama queens, but drama queens annoy them because they feel that these girls don’t give the quieter girls a chance to shine and they even feel they give women a bad name. They just don’t think flamboyancy is decent and considerate. They are often quite particular about who they choose for company as a result. They are really loners.

If there are some Venus in Virgo girls who consider themselves “flashy”, it is always tempered with grace and style.

They generally like to keep their lives stress-free (since they are natural worrywarts). They get nervous when strange or unusual personalities attach themselves to them. They may have strange and eccentric hobbies themselves, but they don’t draw a whole lot of attention to themselves or make a big deal about it. They may see themselves as outcasts, but they really wish for their “eccentricities” to be seen as “normal”. They feel too uncomfortable with people that make them feel strange and may try to project their feelings of being odd on the other party to feel more secure. On the other hand, their idea of “strange” can just be someone who they feel is opposite their personality. For instance, if they are girly, they really may feel uncomfortable with someone who doesn’t enjoy dresses and lip gloss the way they do. If they like sports, they may find a girlish girl to be annoying to be around.

These girls can be quirky and they have a dry wit. They are often quite sarcastic and can point out things others miss. These women aren’t loud-mouths or whiners, but they tell it like it is. They will call a roach a roach. They believe in being honest with people. Sometimes, this honesty makes them seem less flattering, but there are many who appreciate this approach to life.

When around their female peers, they are generally quiet, awkward, and shy. They love to tease their friends and can take more sensitive souls off-guard. They can be loads of fun as a wiry mutable sign. Again, they can even be a little eccentric in choosing what to do for fun. Friends may also think they are bossy, critical, and fussy. They hold themselves to strong opinions and if their friends don’t agree, they tend to try to “fix” them. Usually, though, they are right. They are so studious and smart, it’s hard to refuse their advise. Partners may find them to be helpful and down-to-earth. They are quite natural. There is nothing phony about this woman. Partners may not find them to be super glamorous, and may find them to be a little pushy, but they always know that Venus in Virgo has their interests at heart and mostly want to see their loved ones live a happy and healthy lifestyle for as long as possible. Overall, they are simple girls.

To learn more, The Magnetism, Charm, and Attractive Power of Venus is a good article.

Their most beautiful qualities are their modesty, intelligence, taste in clothes and cosmetics, and willingness to serve. These women work hard and put more emphasis on their service to others than their own worth. They have an understated grace and charm. They are real. Their beauty is hardly ever fake. Many are naturally gorgeous and don’t have to do much but eat right and exercise. They know how to improve on their imperfections to make themselves even more attractive.

Relationships: Being the modest girls they are, they are really simple and realistic when it comes to relationships. They are not interested in “frilly” romance. They not only find it to be unrealistic, they find it to be uncomfortable. Usually, though, these women still enjoy simple luxuries, like being treated to dinner or a movie. They are not largely affectionate, but they appreciate gifts. They enjoy giving and receiving them, if they feel they are deserved. When they think of a relationship, they envision two people working together and helping one another. They want their partners to be dependable and responsible. They like to relax with their partners. Relationships aren’t really a major thing for them. When they really like someone, they are very shy. They often put duty before love. They might love their partners, but they don’t want it to interfere with the important aspects of life, like keeping a decent job instead of running off into the sunset or helping a sick family member even if they have to cancel a date. Even when the situation isn’t important, they are often so shy, they will create something important out of the relationship and focus on it to avoid having to show too much affection. They feel more comfortable just doing nice things for their partners. They even often find it hard to say “I love you” without feeling a little embarrassed. If they say it, they say it simply, in a private setting, without too much drama. They never do anything in a flashy way, not even when it comes to pleasing their partners. They love to tease their partners. Sometimes, it comes across a little critical. They can be fussy. They like things done a certain way and they want partners that are efficient. Because of their natures, finding love feels like a challenge. But it’s not impossible. When they do find the “one”, the person is usually someone they stay with for a long time.

They are constantly falling in love with Mercury, the planet of communication, intellect, and reason. They can’t resist someone so intelligent and interesting. Mercury is never short of information. He is skilled at whatever he does, which is pretty attractive as well as impressive. Every conversation is rational and reasonable. Unfortunately, Mercury is fast-moving. He has no time to develop a deep emotional bond.

They dress quite understated. They may be fashionable or simple and modest, but it will still be understated and tasteful, never extreme. Even when preparing for a date, they make sure they look nice without looking desperate. They don’t generally focus on their clothes. They tend to focus more on their skin and bodies. They like make-up because it hides imperfections, but they don’t like looking too fake. They prefer a natural glow. Their make-up is usually crisp and tidy. Their make-up usually matches their natural beauty well. Their products are usually organic and natural. They think it’s more important to keep the face clean rather than packed with blush, eye-shadow, and lipstick (though some really like those things, too). Their style may not be loud, but it is quite distinct. These ladies really do know how to dress themselves. They always smell good. And they usually have a nice, toned body, so they generally look good in everything. If they don’t, they will make themselves look good in whatever outfit they choose. Again, they are the queens of make-overs because they pay attention to every detail. When they dress for dates, they care that their make-up, hair, and skin are beautiful. They sometimes even enjoy the process of getting everything done. Shampooing and moisturizing their skin can be relaxing for these nervous ladies. They are very good at using the right products and eating the right foods to make themselves look and feel young and healthy. These women usually have toned stomachs, so they look great in cropped tops. They are drawn to earth tone, solid colors and no crazy patterns. They always look sophisticated. They tend to know how to match their outfits up perfectly. They always wear the right top with the right skirt or pants.

Their idea of a date is really simple, like their personality. They love a nice, quiet dinner. They like chilling at home, watching Netflix and eating pizza. They enjoy being cooked for especially. They even enjoy outings where the two of you are just running errands together. But if you invite them over, make sure your house is neat and clean. A junky, filthy place is a deal-breaker. If you’re driving them around, make sure the car is clean and well-cared for as well. The perfect gift would be something that is both beautiful, high quality, and useful. If it’s cold outside, a nice pair of leather gloves would be nice. Expensive perfume would also be perfect. In any case, they really want something that will last. The perfect compliment would only happen if someone notices the little details. Complimenting a certain twinkle in the eye or how a hair strip is set just right are ways a partner can show they are attentive. They also like their efforts acknowledged. They prefer a “thank you” to random compliments.

Venus in Virgo women are honest towards those they aren’t interested in. They may be critical, but they will try to present their disinterest in a constructive and precise way. They will also not accept phone numbers or give out their phone numbers. They may not even give out their names. The challenge many suitors often face with these women is living up to their strict standards. Their standards aren’t high, just particular. If they are interested, these women will be playful and teasing the one they like constantly, but they will do little odd favors, like being around to help someone clean up or helping a family member. They will be super shy around someone they like and you may not be able to really tell that these women like you. But they do tend to pay a little too much attention to someone they like.

What Venus Means in Your Chart

These women believe that all women are particular and have high standards. They feel that women are stronger than society portrays them. They generally have viewpoints about women that often contrast society’s views on women. They are aware that some women will not agree, but they may not realize that their ideas are not truly the “right” way of thinking and are just their own personal thinking.

Female Sexuality: Venus in Virgos have a madonna/whore syndrome really. Overall, they are very hard on themselves when it comes to sexuality. There are those Venus in Virgo women who see sexuality as a practice that should be controlled and monitored. They may even find the act indecent. They may feel that sexuality destroys society and these ladies prefer love to sex. These women may feel guilty when they feel any sexual desire, especially if that desire is toward the opposite sex. This type may be harder on potential lovers.

Then there are those Venus in Virgos who like sexual encounters and see it as healthy, but they may not necessarily flaunt their sexuality all over the place. In the privacy of their homes, they take great care of their partners sexually, trying to perfect their skills. This type is not likely to have many partners, as they care about sexual health, but they may do it frequently with one partner.

Finally, there are the Venus in Virgo women who are open with their sexuality, being the honest and real earth sign that doesn’t hold any punches, and may choose to use their bodies to get attention from the opposite sex. These women become experts at serving men. Some Venus in Virgo women have low self-esteem and may need the attention of others to make them feel beautiful. Venus in Virgos often feel overlooked in life, so some may pay extra attention that they are noticed and desired. These women could end up working in a job that is “sex-related” like prostitution. Some Venus in Virgos will only have sex with you if you pay them or provide another service (being a service-oriented sign and all).

Still, regardless, these women can be independent of sex. They are perfectly fine with being a virgin or celibate for many years. If they feel it is practical to do so, they will cut all ties with a partner, that includes sex.

It’s not easy to arouse these women. If you want to arouse them, the setting must be just right, their partner has to make them feel extremely comfortable, and they must feel safe. Once aroused, they tend to all the details of love-making. They can play any role their partners want them to play. They can be the one serving their partner or being served. It’s nice for them to get what they want. They hardly ever do, so they appreciate when a lover is attentive enough to try and please them.

If you love a woman that is modest, humble, down-to-earth, helpful, and practical, she’s the woman for you. If you need some excitement in your life, need to be in control, don’t like to be fussed or nagged at, and into a passionate romantic life, look somewhere else. If you have Venus aspecting Mercury, you may relate to this description. Venus in 6th house natives may relate to it a bit as well. Virgo is ruled by Mercury, so your Mercury sign will alter your expression. You can read the description of your Mercury sign within this page. For example, if you have Venus in Virgo, Mercury in Libra, you can read Venus in Libra to see if it sounds more familiar to you. Any planets or house placement cusps in Taurus or Libra will be affected by this planet.

Venus in 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.

These ladies can be very feminine, loving all the usual things associated with girlhood like fashion, make-up, and socializing. They love anything that brings pleasure and ease in their lives. From my experience, they especially love shopping. They don’t always necessarily buy clothes, but they love to observe what’s being bought and sold in their local stores. They tend to like cute and cuddly items like stuffed teddy bears, puppy dog socks, and kitty cat purses. They are also really creative. They like to put arts and crafts together. Most importantly, they love any chance to socialize. They are generally the leader in getting their friends together for special outings or they manage all the party affairs. They are generally the person that connects all the people in the room with one another. They are extraordinarily popular, well-dressed, and intelligent. They make great conversationalists. This makes them magnetic. They are usually the diplomat, laughing friends out of their anger with one another. They believe in peace before violence, love before hate.

Though they are generally diplomatic, they can be a little stiff and judgmental. They are quite superficial in their personality, putting on a smile even when they are irritated with someone. Though they treat everyone respectfully and nicely, they tend to have high moral standards and super self-respect. They often strengthen these ideas when others agree with them. They are a mental sign after all, so they have ideas on how they feel life should be run and they care that they have support. If things were left up to them, they would direct people’s lives like they do their parties or gatherings. They believe in holding to social standards of decorum. This doesn’t mean they can’t let go and break the rules every once in a while, but they make sure they help others transition into the changes they make. They expect others to be as courteous about the disruptions they make, but others are not always so careful as they are.

Some Venus in Libras judge people on the clothes they wear. This doesn’t mean they believe everyone should dress as stylish as they do, but they tend to think people shouldn’t show too much skin and should be more modest or they may feel people should practice good hygiene. Some Venus in Libras judge behaviors as well and tend to stay away from people who seem crude, loud, or boisterous. Still, they will never admit this to anyone’s face. Though they like to see both sides of a situation when it comes to others, if they are the ones in an argument, they will debate until they win. They generally don’t like to argue, but they will try to have the last word.

As judgmental as Venus in Libras can be, they are always fair. Most people think they are reasonable. If they can’t tolerate something, more than likely others can’t tolerate those same things. They tend to side with popular ideas, which is why most people always agree with them. It’s difficult to argue with them because they have such a balanced view of the world.

Venus is the planet of refinement; Libra is balanced. These women know how to keep their life balanced. Even though they like girly activities, they make sure to balance their masculine energies with their feminine energies. Some may be both interested in shopping and sports, as well as reading. They never go overboard with anything. Unfortunately, they often seem to lack passion as a result. They generally approach things in a cool and easy-going manner.

Still, they are strong about justice and fairness, as mentioned before. They are strong supporters of feminism. They believe in equal rights. They want to be treated fairly among their friends, lovers, and society as a whole. Of course, their idea of “fairness” may not be the same as everyone else’s. Deep down, Libras can manipulate these ideas about “justice” to suit their own agendas. Libras can turn their charm into manipulation, and they are convincing when it comes to getting people to see only their pure intentions.

Among their fellow female peers, these women are cool, attractive, friendly, and a joy to be around. They are balanced around everyone. They are not too retiring, so they can keep up with lively souls, at the same time they like the easy life. They are not likely to take over, but they know how to be the leader when given the chance. They must learn to stand up for themselves a little more when it comes to their loved ones. They put up with things from their loved ones when they wouldn’t normally take certain things from strangers. Then, there are some women who find them to be too passive when dealing with others or plain out phony. Libras are known to play two against the middle. They don’t do this on purpose. They just don’t want anyone to hate them and try to see everyone’s point of view, even if the two views contrast greatly.

These ladies can be lazy. They have plenty of energy, but they would rather put this energy towards something pleasant. Generally, they hate dirty, difficult work. They would do better in jobs where they can be creative like fashion, art, and music. Otherwise, they would need to be working in a harmonious partnership to enjoy their job more.

Venus in Libras can be superficial in other ways. They tend to be attracted to the pretty, popular, and rich people. Though they like everybody, they take a special liking to these sorts of people as they see a significant social advantage they can gain from hanging with those who have a high social status. They’re not exactly users; they are genuinely drawn to these people and will think of them as best friends-even if these people really don’t treat them right. Sometimes, they care a little too much about their reputation and need to learn to let go of people that they have to put on a fake face for. As Dr. Seuss said, “Be who you are because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”

Eventually, Venus in Libras learn to balance their love of others with their love for themselves. They really work hard to love themselves. They do this by highlighting the good in themselves and staying away from negative thoughts. They learn to love their “haters” with the help of their supporters. They often seek to be around people who like them and find them attractive instead of staying around people who make them feel unattractive in some way. Still, they must be careful of relying on others to boost their self-esteem and give them worth. They must learn to find this worth within themselves, regardless of others’ opinions. They also must be careful of comparing themselves to other people. They often forget to be thankful for the situation they are already in when they see someone doing things they wish to do. They must remember that things are never as they seem.

Venus in Libras can be independent, but they prefer company to loneliness. This is part of the reason they put up with people. They are socialites. You’ll never really find them alone unless absolutely necessary. They need the mental stimulation and they feel insecure when left alone.

To learn more, The Magnetism, Charm, and Attractive Power of Venus is a good article.

These women embody beauty both inside and out. They are charming, sweet, affectionate, well-dressed, easy-going, and super friendly. They have class and always relate to people from many walks of life. They know how to bring attention to themselves without coming across arrogant. They have a humble beauty that is hard to disguise, no matter what they’re wearing. They know how to bring out their most charming qualities in any situation and they understand what truly makes people beautiful. They are good to people and try to keep the peace. They know how to translate their own beauty to the world around them. It’s infectious.

Relationships: Because they feel so lonely so often, Venus in Libra women really feel they need a partner in their lives to complete them, more than any other planet in Libra. They truly believe that life isn’t worth living if you have no one to share it with. And if their friends are dating, they feel lonelier. They can’t stand to see other couples cuddling up when they are alone. Because of this, they may get in a relationship with anyone, even if they aren’t really in love with that person. They may be entirely superficial about their partnerships, only getting with a partner just to be in a partnership or just to keep up with their friends. In this way, they may use a partner for social status. Still, there are those who do want a partner that is at least compatible with them. They view relationships as something that should bring happiness and peace. They are drawn to sweet, peaceful, and thoughtful partners. They like when people get them gifts and shower them with affection. In a relationship, they like the special attention they can get from a partner. They are really into romance. But they believe in being equal partners. They like to give as much as they get. They keep score in their heads. Heck, they may keep a record of it! If their partners give to them, they will give to their partners. And they generally feel that they do all they can to please. These women hate to be lonely so they try to make their partners feel as comfortable as they can. Still, they want to feel comfortable, too. Special holidays are important to them. They expect their partners to remember them on Christmas, Birthdays, and Valentine’s Day. Never forget their anniversary. They like to keep up with their friends’ relationships. If all their friends got something special on Valentine’s Day and they didn’t get anything, they will not be happy. They want partners that care about their reputations to a certain degree. They dislike being embarrassed. They want people to see the good going on in their lives and they hate to air their dirty laundry in public. They hate drama in their relationships. Their problem is they can be flirty and tend to always think the grass is greener on the other side. They can be indecisive when choosing partners as a result. They always think some other person is treating someone better than their partners are. They are the queens of ‘compare and contrast’. This isn’t always bad. Sometimes, they look at other relationships and draw creative inspiration. They may find new ways to show their love for a partner. Still, they may often have a hard time choosing partners. They are often so caught up in the attention and love from all of their suitors, they are not sure which one they like better! But they better make a decision because no one likes to share.

These women are always falling in love with Venus, the planet of love, beauty, and art. They can’t resist Venus’s grace and love of balance and harmony. Everything about Venus seems pleasant and refined. Life with Venus is peaceful and nice all the time. Of course, there’s not much excitement going on. Just a nice easy life, without chaos.

On a usual basis, they dress comfortably and casually. They like to feel comfortable and at ease with themselves. But they do like looking nice sometimes as well. They do everything in moderation. And they love shopping, so they tend to have tons of clothes, shoes, and accessories. For dates, they really make sure they are attractive. They generally don’t like to wear things that are too outrageous, but they make sure every detail is in place. They have a sense of grace about their personal style. Sometimes, they like to match their partners when they go on dates, kind of like prom. They may ask what color their partners are wearing and may find an outfit in the exact same color. They like to look like they are with someone no matter where they go. Most Venus in Libras are natural. They don’t wear a whole lot of make-up. When they do, it’s so subtle, it almost looks like they aren’t wearing any. They mostly like to highlight their natural look. They have so much charm it almost doesn’t matter what they wear! They can wear charm and get away with it. Their personalities make them more attractive than any outfit could. Still, they have a vain side. They still like for people to pay attention to their appearance. They are also trend-setters, wearing all the latest fashions (since they like to shop so much). Some of them are so creative, they are excellent at designing their own fashions. In any case, they have an eye for color. They prefer subtle colors to bold colors. When dressed up, they like for others to pay attention to their back and butt. But they try not to highlight their beauty in an offensive way. They can be indecisive about what to wear, usually having a friend help them decide what’s best.

Their idea of the perfect date is lavish. They want to feel special. They generally like just being with someone, but it’s more impressive when someone adds a sense of luxury to the event. They like to go to the most expensive restaurants. They like to be treated to a lavish breakfast, lunch, or dinner. They like the flowers, candy, and other gifts. They want the night to be something they will never forget. It must be really romantic. They can be idealistic in this way. If it’s not perfect, they will be disappointed. Their idea of the perfect gift is definitely something romantic. They like expensive jewelry, teddy bears with hearts, a dozen roses, sweet cards, or whatever else is sweet and thoughtful. They love compliments. Sweet words work wonders. Still, they don’t like anything too rude. Everything must be said in a sugar-coated way.

These women have a hard time rejecting suitors. When asked out, they try to be considerate. They really don’t know whether they don’t want someone until after that first date, unless that individual has been completely obnoxious. They always give others a chance. If they are dating when asked out by someone else, they try to reject someone as nicely as possible, may try to hook that person up with someone else, or try to avoid them. Some may date two people at once, just to see if they’re missing out on something better in the other. The challenge many suitors face is winning their hearts permanently. It’s hard to get them to focus on one lover because they are always considering whether the grass is greener somewhere else. They expect equality at all times, but this equality depends on their own idea of fairness. Their standards can be high at times because they are easily turned off by crude behavior and ugliness of all kinds. If they like an individual, they will be super flirty and sweet. They may pull out their best manners and charm. They will definitely try to look their best.

What Venus Means in Your Chart

They tend to think all women want to be treated like ladies. They believe that most women care about their appearance, but want to be respected for more than that. They believe most women are softer, more balanced, than men are. They also feel that women are more sensitive to things and more thoughtful. They believe every girl has a feminine side and a masculine side. They would be shocked to find that other women don’t view the world the way they do. In fact, this would make them a little uncomfortable. Still, most women wouldn’t think these ideas are threatening. It would be easy for them to convince other women of their ideas.

Female Sexuality: Venus in Libra see “sex” as a superficial thing. They really like the “look of sex” rather than actually having it. They tend to dress really sexy sometimes (though their idea of sexy is pretty modest) and tend to have a flirty personality. Still, they don’t like being objectified. It may seem a little confusing for some people. How can they both like people paying attention to their appearance and hate being objectified? Does this have to do with their indecision? I think it has more to do with their need for balance and moderation in their lives. They do want to feel sexy to someone, but they don’t want to be treated just as a sex object and not a person who has thoughts, feelings, and the ability to do other things. And really, they aren’t overly sexual. They see sex as a part of love-making rather than focus on the act itself. They often see the actual act as dirty and a little uncomfortable. They don’t really like the wildness and energy that comes with it. They have a hard time focusing on what they desire and have a hard time just releasing their passions. They also focus so much on looking good while doing it, they don’t actually do it. They hate making weird faces during the act as well. These women prefer love to sex. They are really influenced by the need to conform and are far more socialized to translate their erotic yearnings into romantic fantasy. They also care what their friends think of them at the end of the day. I would even say they care how women in the world will view them as they want to be good role models to others. They usually want to wait until marriage to be sexually involved with someone. They believe in doing things “right”. Their elders have a strong influence on them. They keep their legs closed until someone “puts a ring on it”. Or at least they want someone who seems sincerely in love with them before they give up their bodies.

On the other hand, there are the more insecure Venus in Libras that have sex to keep a partner around. If they are in love with someone, they will generally do anything for them. If they feel they are in love, they will be more sexual for that person. Still, they must feel that the person will be loyal to them. They are not the kind of women to like jumping from partner to partner. They are not that loose. Still, they can be a little naive.

In order to arouse these women, their partner must be charming, attractive, smooth, and considerate. A sweet date is likely to arouse them. In the bedroom, they are considerate and soft partners. They like for their partners to pay attention to their bodies. They love all positions, but they aren’t extremely unusual in style.

If you love a woman is charming, graceful, attractive, and modest, you will love these women. If you are crude, rude, not romantic at all, or see women as the inferior gender, look elsewhere. If you have a lot of aspects to Venus, you may relate to this description. Venus in 7th house natives may relate to it a bit as well. Venus is rules Libra. Any planets or house placement cusps in Taurus or Libra will be affected by this planet.

Venus in 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. 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 Venus in Scorpio women that reject femininity mostly reject the social idea of it. These women tend to feel they have more in common with men than other women because they tend to want to try things society doesn’t often feel is “suitable” for women. They may not feel like they fit in with anyone. These women don’t like to be classified or defined. They often dislike having to live up to standards and may do the opposite just to get on social conformists’ nerves. It really stems from a deep insecurity. They feel so strongly about being liked that they feel strong rejection when they aren’t liked. This makes them resentful, so they tend to take their disappointment out on the social world in general. Because of their experiences, they have the ability to see the beautiful in the ugly and the ugly in the beautiful.

Regardless of their stand on feminine issues, they are real fighters for whatever cause they believe in. And they all value inner beauty over outer beauty (even if they are also beautiful on the outside). They are never what they seem and they believe in the saying “Never judge a book by its cover”. They may seem innocent on the outside with dark hidden secrets. They may seem like a wild child and hold some traditional values. They don’t believe that “looks” can define a person. And Venus in Scorpio likes being this complex. They like being “layered” and having “depth”. These women are anything but shallow. They keep an air of mystery and are fierce about their privacy. Really, they fear being judged and controlled by others’ judgments.

Venus in Scorpio women are always rebels. They may not dress odd or act eccentric all the time, but they always hold contrasting views to everyone else’s. They are true rebels inside, not superficially. Really, they see the world much deeper than others and they value this depth in others.

Around their fellow female peers, they are also all or nothing. Women may be fiercely attracted to them at times, finding them strong and charismatic. Other times, women may find them rude, reckless, and to hold opinions that don’t seem “acceptable”. Sometimes, they seem really shy and quiet. These same qualities can be translated as mysterious and suspicious. They are also always transforming themselves, whether it’s their style or ideas. So for a long period of time, they can be one way, and then suddenly change their whole identity. Still, they always remain the same on the inside. They will always be strong-willed and passionate, no matter where they stand. They seem to be hard to predict among their friends. They can be cutting and sarcastic. Sometimes, they can be devious, playing pranks on friends. Not everyone can handle their intensity. They tend to be very picky about the people they choose as company. They can be ice cold to people they don’t like.

Still, women may be magnetically drawn to them because they will do anything for their friends. They are protective and are not afraid to stand up to bullies.

They attract many enemies as well as friends. Women may find themselves really jealous of them because they are so magnetic. Sometimes, they encourage this competitive attitude in women without realizing it. Venus in Scorpio women tend to go after whatever it is they desire, regardless of the toes they step on along the way. They both hate and love their rivals. While their rivals make life more difficult for them, they feel they push them to be even better as well.

These people like to be in control and to have influence. If they end up around other strong-willed people, there will be a power struggle. They often get possessive and controlling of their loved ones, even if they don’t like being controlled themselves. Well, sometimes. If it’s someone they really like, they can be wrapped around that person’s finger, feeling an intense bond. They tend to have a love-hate relationship with everything because they are so intense. They love so hard they end up controlled, at the same time they hate this feeling because they feel so deeply about things. Their partners find them to be intense but magnetic. They can cause a lot of drama, but they are addicting. They make their partners feel a certain rush, a certain purpose, you just can’t feel with the other women of the Zodiac.

To learn more, The Magnetism, Charm, and Attractive Power of Venus is a good article.

These women have a way of reversing the “beauty” roles. What most others consider ugly, scary, forbidden, or mysterious, these women can find the beauty within it. These women have a mysterious, magnetic, dark, and powerful beauty. It can attract both lovers and rivals. Their charms are both subtle and loud. They are quiet, but those who notice can’t resist their aura. They truly feel that beauty is skin-deep and only within. They believe that the prettiest faces could hide the ugliest intentions and shouldn’t always be trusted. Thus, they work on being both physically attractive and a person of substance. These women are always respected as a result.

Relationships: That love-hate thing applies to their romantic relationships. They see relationships as nothing but a bunch of drama at times; other times they see relationships as something deep and meaningful. They are looking for meaningful, passionate partners. They want their relationships to have depth. They just don’t want a superficial affair to make themselves look good in front of others or to fit in with friends. They truly want someone that they connect with on a deeper level. They just don’t want to be around someone that has the same hobbies in common, they want someone that understands their deepest fears, their deepest desires, and they want that person to feel the same way they do. For them, it is all or nothing in relationships. Either their partner is completely compatible with them or they don’t belong together at all. This intense view of relationships can be a lot for potential lovers who are not prepared for it. This is why they only want someone who can see below the surface of things. They absolutely HATE partners who were attracted to them only because they were attractive. They want a partner who is attracted to more than their outer looks. And they can tell when someone isn’t being sincere. These women seek to transform in their relationships. They tend to be drawn to dramatic relationships as a result. When these women get into a relationship, they suddenly seem to “change”. Even their family and friends will notice this. This is because they are looking to bring out hidden or concealed tendencies with a close partner. They want a partner that is intelligent, someone that thinks about the world. They tend to be attracted to taboo love affairs. They often get caught up in encounters with people most would think are not good for them. Overall, they do not want love to be shallow. Therefore, they tend to be drawn to people that are both attractive and intimidating. They love when their partners are jealous because it confirms their partner’s strong love and attraction to them.

These ladies are constantly falling in love with both Mars and Pluto, the planet of action, desire, aggression and the planet of transformation, obsession, and power. Basically, the thrill and intensity blows their minds. The passion that they feel in their relationship with these two planets is so intense, it changes them for life. It’s always a relationship full of power struggles, fighting, and drama…yet, they can’t seem to shake themselves out of it. No other relationship can make them forget it. When pulled away from Mars and Pluto, they desire to return. It has control over them in many ways. Mars and Pluto makes them feel dominated, yet they like it because it makes them feel wanted.

What Venus Means in Your Chart

When it comes to dressing themselves, they can be both casual and girly, but they will always have their own unique style. They want their style to mostly reflect their inner nature. They tend to be drawn to dark colors and dark make-up. Ruby reds and jet blacks tend to appeal to them. They like solids more than anything, but they tend to like outrageous patterns sometimes, too. Some reject the superficial and tend to dress more casually and comfortably all the time. Some can be extremely modest, others can be extreme. But they are always all or nothing. And keep in mind, they are constantly transforming themselves, so they constantly change their look every 5 years or so. When dressing for dates, they know how to be both sexy and modest in their appearance. They tend to be fans of mesh or sheer. They like the subtlety of showing a little skin without giving away too much. They always have a magnetism that is hard to resist no matter what they wear. They have seductive eyes and intelligent personalities. Yet, these women always worry about being attractive enough. Because they have such an all or nothing magnetism, some people either like them strongly or really hate them. So, they end up unsure whether they are attractive enough.

Their idea of the perfect date can’t be generalized. It really depends on the woman and her individual interests. They aren’t really romantics. They just like what they like–strongly. If they have a passion for baking, for example, they may consume themselves with it at times. Therefore, the perfect date may be to a baking show or to a restaurant that specializes in deserts. Another good date could be somewhere mysterious, like to a magic show. They may like quiet places like museums or isolated dinners. Generally, the date must pique their interest in some way. This means they are looking for an intriguing partner, someone who goes beyond the normal, traditional standard date. Sometimes, they may be all-or-nothing regarding partners. Either they are drawn to you or they or not. If they aren’t drawn to you, it doesn’t matter what date you take them, they will never be interested in you. But if they are drawn to you, they can go anywhere with you and be happy. That first impression is everything to them. They’ve already investigated everything about a person long before they were asked out. No amount of charm can replace what they have investigated about a person.

The perfect gift for them varies. They really aren’t impressed by material things. Still, if you give them something they really desire, and you constantly shower them with gifts of the things they desire, they will cave. Compliments do nothing to flatter them unless they are really into you. They prefer others to acknowledge their strengths if anything. They mostly want someone who is honest with them. Cut the crap. Whatever their date says must be sincere and not something that person says to any girl who crosses paths with them.

Either they like you or they don’t. If they don’t, they won’t pull any punches. They can be sharp and cutting when rejecting someone. The challenge suitors face is overcoming this woman’s trust issues. They demand commitment. They really don’t trust love. If they like you, they can become a little obsessed. They are quiet and subtle, so you wouldn’t think their feelings are that deep. They may just wear a little smile and show extreme shyness. Yet, the next moment, they will be jealous of any other girl the individual is around! They may spend a lot of time researching the individual, if they don’t already know them well. But no one will know this. They know how to hide their feelings. They often wait until the object of their affections shows interest in them first before revealing their feelings.

What Venus Means in Your Chart

They feel femininity is a deep and personal feeling that can’t be generalized or defined. Therefore, they feel that each woman experiences things differently from one another. They wouldn’t be shocked to find that people disagree with them, as they meet opposition often, but they still may be surprised that some women really think all women are the same.

Female Sexuality: Venus is in the sign of sexuality. Scorpio is well known for being sexy. But their sexuality is not always totally explored or completely open. It isn’t really defined. It’s not that Venus in Scorpio women are unrestricted sexually. On the contrary, in fact. They are ALWAYS in control of their sexuality. Pluto, their ruler, gives them this power. This means that Venus in Scorpio women will either be openly sexual or completely reserved sexually. These women can be so in control of their sexuality that they can go without it for the rest of their life. They see sexuality as a powerful thing. Giving up their sexuality is like giving up their power and control over themselves. This is because they experience everything completely. When they have sex, their emotions pour over, giving themselves completely to a partner. It is a psychological thing. They always try to keep that part of themselves close. So, when it comes to their sexuality, they tend to keep it concealed and hidden until the right partner comes along. With their reputation for being distrustful, this may take a long time. They have no problem with being a virgin or being celibate. In fact, they value being that way.

Of course, there are Venus in Scorpio women who desire to feel power and control over others. In this case, they may be more promiscuous. They may use sex to dominate others and to feel stronger. They may see sex as a tool to get the things they desire. These women may also just want to anger conformists and they may express their sexuality to make a statement. They also are drawn to taboo sexual practices. Think Fifty Shades of Grey.

Scorpios can be contrasting in their effort to prove you can never judge them by the superficial. They may dress really modest, but live an openly sexual life. They may dress provocative and be a straight up virgin, celibate, abstinent, or asexual.

In order to arouse these women, you must consider whether they want you or not. If they want you, it will be easier to arouse them. If they don’t, you’ll never stand a chance. For those she shows an interest in, you must surrender to her or you must convince her to surrender to you. There is always a wall there. If you can break these defenses, they’re all yours. At some point, she must feel in control. After that, you must prove that you can be trusted. They also feel aroused when there is an air of mystery or tension between themselves and their partners. They also desire their partners more when their partners aren’t interested.

In the bedroom, they are passionate lovers. Once they have decided to give themselves up, they give their all and can wear their partners out. Observe their Mars signs and Pluto signs closely to understand what “all” means for them. They like to have a measure of control. They don’t like to feel vulnerable. At the same time, they may also like being completely dominated. They like the struggle. They may like sex to be a little rough and maybe a little taboo. At all times, though, they want to feel something deep and transforming. They are likely to let sex change them and get obsessed with their sex partners. They must be careful to moderate their tendencies. Scorpio is the sign most associated with sex after all. They often get attached to the rush of an affair. It’s easy for them to seduce others, but it’s just as easy for them to be seduced.

If you love a woman that is unpredictable, deep, powerful, strong-willed, and in control, you will love them. If you have to be the dominant partner, looking for sex to be without restriction or weight, not a fan of emotions, and/or dislike drama, these women are not for you. If you have Venus aspecting Mars or Pluto, you may relate to this description. Venus in 8th house natives may relate to it a bit as well. Scorpio is ruled by Mars traditionally and Pluto, so your Mars and Pluto signs will alter your expression. You can read the description of your Mars and Pluto signs within this page. For example, if you have Venus in Scorpio, Mars and/or Pluto in Sagittarius, you can read Venus in Sagittarius to see if it sounds more familiar to you. Any planets or house placement cusps in Taurus or Libra will be affected by this planet.

Venus in 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. Still, Venus is different from Sagittarius in many ways. Venus likes that Sagittarius provides a life of ease. With all the luck she gets in this placement, why work? But she may not like the exaggerated nature of Sagittarius. It can cause too much drama.

Venus in Sagittarius women love luxury and beauty. They have a zest for life. These women focus on having a positive view of themselves. Self-esteem is their focus. They work really hard to develop confidence in their own bodies and they encourage other women to love themselves. Sometimes, these women seem a little vain as a result. In the process of loving themselves, they often boast or brag about their “progress”. They try not to let anyone tear them down. Exercising humility is usually the last thing on their minds.

Jupiter is the planet of expansion. Sometimes, this means these women indulge in their pleasures more than the average. They tend to gain a little more weight as a result. Many of them actually look good with weight! Still, they must be careful of this tendency as it can cause health issues in the long run. No matter what, though, they never let anyone shame them.

These women tend to have a strong feminine side, loving all the things girls usually like. They can be into fashion and accessories and also love cooking and taking care of the home. Really, they have the confidence to do anything they put their minds to! However, they are always independent and freedom-loving. They don’t like to be compared to other women or grouped together with others as a result. They always find a way to make themselves more individual, whether it’s through a unique personal style or deviating principles.

These women have strong moral and ethical values. But their idea of right and wrong is based on their own experiences. Sometimes, their view of what’s right isn’t popular with other people. Still, they fight for their beliefs and can be preachy when trying to tell others about it. They have very strong opinions about femininity, and they expect other women to follow their example. They are also blunt and straight-forward, not caring whose feelings they hurt.

On the other hand, they do more talking than walking. Being freedom-loving, they don’t often hold themselves to their own principles. They certainly don’t want anyone judging them and placing standards on them. They want the freedom to have many experiences. Still, no matter how they act, their advice is wise and always steers others in the right direction. They are quite intelligent, thinking on a higher plane than most people. They tend to be broad in their views, viewing things in the context of the world rather than just their own community. This is why they value having as many experiences as possible. They want to continue to expand.

These women can be really sporty. They are lively and playful at times as well. Though they sometimes like primping and being pampered, they aren’t afraid to get rough and dirty. They love the outdoors and have an adventurous side to them. They are open-minded and love exploring various cultural backgrounds.

Among their peers, these women tend to be both likable and obnoxious. They are fun, funny, confident, and strong. Most women enjoy their company. They are out-going and hate to be trapped indoors. They really inspire the best in women and most can’t help but admire them. And just like women admire them, they always have one female heroine that they admire as well. They always have a teacher or guide in their lives. They have the courage to do things other women fear which makes them exciting company. At the same time, some women may find their personalities to be a little arrogant, haughty, preachy, and dramatic. These women don’t really care what other people think. They try to give themselves space from friends and peers anyway. Those who like them will; those who don’t won’t. Partners may find them to be lively and fun, but hard to pin down.

To learn more, The Magnetism, Charm, and Attractive Power of Venus is a good article.

The most beautiful quality about these women is their pure love of life! They embrace life with everything they do. Thus, they radiate positivity and life. These women are lucky. No matter what they wear, how much weight they lose or gain, they will always be attractive. They learned to love themselves early in life and this upbeat outlook inspires others to love themselves, too. It makes them ten times more attractive.

Relationships: They are so freedom-loving, they mostly want a relationship without any strings attached. They prefer to have a relationship where they can grow and learn about life. They want to experience a relationship thoroughly. They really want the dating experience. They put their partners on a pedestal and expect their partners to admire them as well. These women let their beliefs influence their relationships, so they are drawn to partners that share the same beliefs. They want distance and acceptance in their relationships because they like to do what they want to do whenever they want to do it. These women do want to have fun in their relationships. They are likely to run away from a relationship that has too many problems. They want to have many adventures with their lovers. These women value honesty and hate liars. They prefer someone who doesn’t beat around the brush or someone who isn’t afraid to speak their minds.

They are always falling in love with Jupiter, the planet of expansion, optimism, and abundance. He’s a positive influence in this woman’s life. He expands her life and gives her new experiences. Anything she wants, she gets, and as much as she likes! In her life, Jupiter gives her all the benefits and opportunities she’s looking for in life. He pushes her forward and allows her to reach her dreams. With him, she never feels bad.

When dressing, they can be casual and on-the-go types, but they care about their appearance a lot. They are always concerned that they are looking fabulous and attractive. They want people to see them as the best looking woman in the room. When dressing for dates, they tend to be jaw-dropping. Sometimes, they can be a little extravagant or eccentric in their tastes. They love colors and patterns. They tend to be bold and bright. They don’t mind showing off their shapes and body. They are confident in their skin. Even when they aren’t, they learn to love themselves by highlighting what makes them feel beautiful. They love attention from suitors. They may be attracted to exotic attire, wanting to wear a Kimono if they are black or wanting to wear buckskin even though they are white. These women may have been accused of culturally appropriating at some time in their lives. In this case, they should use their desire for knowledge to do more research on the “costumes” they choose to adorn themselves with. They tend to focus on their legs, thighs, and butt. They may like wearing skirts, shorts, or tight-fitting jeans as a result.

Their idea of a date is doing something fun or adventurous. Take them somewhere amazing, almost exclusive. They love V.I.P tickets to special events or reservations to the most expensive restaurants in town. They want to experience something they can tell others about. They like to share their experiences. They want the V.I.P treatment wherever they go. They don’t mind doing an outdoor activity, but it must be wild and fun, like water skiing. The more experiences this woman has had, the harder she will be to impress. Their partners would have to reach for ‘bigger and better’. The perfect gift for them would be something they can easily carry around, something that doesn’t have too much baggage. But they still like items that are expensive and extravagant. Show them how much they mean to you. They like jewelry because they can easily put them on and keep moving. They actually prefer quantity over quality. They like being showered with many gifts even if the gifts themselves mean little to them. The best compliment for them would be to stroke their egos and make them feel amazing. They like compliments. But they prefer people who are honest and straight-forward. So don’t hold back if you think they’re hot or sexy.

These women hardly ever reject suitors. Every chance is a chance for a new experience. But if they really don’t want to date someone, they will be honest about it. They won’t sugar-coat it. The challenge suitors face is trying to catch and tie these women down. They are so tempted to try everything, it’s difficult for them to focus on one partner. If they like someone, they are open, flirty, and spontaneous about jumping into an affair. They tend to go over-board to impress someone. After all, the expansive planet Jupiter is their ruler. Love is more open in this sign, and they show it in grandiose ways.

What Venus Means in Your Chart

These women believe that all women hold themselves to the same moral and ethical values regarding womanhood and relationships. If they don’t, they feel all women should hold themselves to the same values. They can be really preachy about this. They may clash with other women as a result.

Female Sexuality: These women tend to be really comfortable with their sexuality. They believe in being honest and straight-forward. When they desire it, they just go for it! Of course, this depends on their moral and ethical values. As a mutable sign, they tend to have these conflicting views. While they are unrestricted in their idea of exploring sex, if they feel certain sexual actions are wrong, they will not do it. These women focus on strengthening women and this could be sexually as well. They feel that a woman’s sexuality is a powerful thing. Since they are focused on self-esteem and feeling positive, they believe in looking at female sexuality as a positive thing. Of course, these women must be careful of exaggerating their sexuality and boasting that it is more than what it really is.

The easiest way to arouse this women is to tempt them. They must be convinced that they are going to have a fun time. They are also tempted by partners that offer a new bedroom experience. They tend to bring their own experiences to the bedroom. They are fun partners and a little wild. They tend to like outdoor sex or other such adventurous sexual experiences. They tend to over-indulge in sex at times and should learn to moderate their tendencies (considering Venus combines with Jupiter in this position). Too much of a good thing can be bad.

If you want a woman who is fun, lively, adventurous, with high moral and ethical values, she’s the one for you. If you need commitment, want someone more quiet, someone more reserved, and looking for someone submissive, you won’t find it in these women. If you have Venus aspecting Jupiter, you may relate to this description. Venus in 9th house natives may relate to it a bit as well. Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, so your Jupiter sign will alter your expression. You can read the description of your Jupiter sign within this page.

Venus in 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.

How these women were raised has a strong influence on the kind of women they are. The lesson in life for most of these women is to learn to love and respect themselves without validation from others.

Venus in Capricorn women are naturally conservative, mature, and sophisticated in their thoughts and ideas. They are cool and try not to make a big deal about too much. They often look really serious and rarely smile. I should say they have that settled sly grin. They are usually very successful and business savvy. They are able to set their feelings aside so that they can accomplish things in the world. This doesn’t mean they are unfeeling, they are just good at channeling their feelings in appropriate ways or saving them for the right time.

As women, they are not afraid of a “man’s world”.

They can be down-to-earth. They are honest and tend to be real about their feelings and thoughts. They can be sarcastic and cutting in their opinions. They don’t have patience for babyish behavior. These women hate arguing, especially over petty things. They especially don’t like cat fights. They really do believe women should learn to respect one another.

They aren’t the kinds of women that expect to be coddled and protected. They are perfectly capable of taking care of themselves.

They may be into feminine activities, but they are never over-done. Though they like pampering themselves and looking pretty, they are generally practical and may not emphasize these things. They have a natural interest in luxury or big-money items. They are generally classy girls. They seem prim and proper. Even if they have a wild streak, there is always a good girl streak within. They were raised to be well-behaved. They were also raised to be responsible and take care of themselves. They are good at taking care of their homes and balancing their careers, though sometimes it leaves them little time for pleasures.

While they may see themselves as mature, others may not see this in them. Some people may think they care too much about their status. Others may see them as attention-whores because they seem to be bent on doing anything for attention and recognition. Respect for their work and gaining recognition are very important to these ladies. No matter how others see them, though, there is always a reason for their behavior. They are capable of being objective and good at seeing things for what they really are. They also know how to sell themselves and tend to be good at the interview process.

Sometimes, though, they feel like the road to success is much harder for them than for other women. They really want to be successful, but it’s hard for them to work their charms the same way other women can, being so honest, reserved, and sarcastic, among other things. But when people finally do respect them, they always respect them for what they do rather than what they look like or rather than for any “charms”.

Among female peers, they seem like loners. They distance themselves from most people. As a result, they are easily misunderstood. They aren’t concerned exactly with other people’s opinions unless absolutely necessary. The opinions must be constructive or useful. However, they like to be at the top of their social game. They dislike feeling like failures and truly want to be admired. They generally tend to be stylish and sophisticated, so women respect and admire them at times. Other times, women find them to be cold, removed from society, sarcastic, and biting. They can be socially competitive and distrustful. Some people may feel Venus in Capricorns are consumed with their careers and reputations. Their friends find them to be cool to hang around but not the easiest to get close to. There is always a wall there. No matter how people see them, they will work hard to earn respect. They have to be careful not to envy other women who have gotten things much easier than they have. Somewhat, they like being around women who aren’t going for the same goals or women who aren’t as successful. They like to be around normal girls who are down-to-earth and easy to talk to. On the other hand, they may only respect women who have made a name for themselves and are successful in their own right. They must be careful of using friends to climb the ladder. Despite this, they are usually actually fun to be around and they have a great sense of humor.

These women carry a certain strength that is hardly found in the world of women. They are capable of conquering the world if they wanted to. These women want to feel worth it in life. They try to develop a substantial life as a result. As strong as they are, they never seem satisfied with where they are. This is why they always remain ambitious and continue challenging themselves. They always create goals for themselves and enjoy accomplishing things. These women will have accomplished a lot in their lifetime. They start moving upward at a very early age. They tend to seem very mature at a young age. As they get older, they seem younger. It’s possibly because they grew up too fast and so it’s hard for others to understand them when they grow up and change. They often already seemed grown-up to most people.

Venus in Capricorns can endure a lot. Because they try not to take things too personal, they don’t let too much shake them. People can talk about them all they want and it will never stop them from doing what they want. Still, they can get pessimistic and get depressed. They don’t mind people’s opinions, but they hate failure. Failure is never an option for them. They are patient about reaching goals and sure-footed. This is because they plan things very well. They are good at planning parties for their friends because they tend to think practically about how this can be accomplished, budget well, and are very good at turning ideas into a reality.

They are strong about boundaries and privacy. They are always aware of the consequences of their actions at all times. This can make them reserved or open. If they are looking for more results, they know just how to get the results they want. If they are trying to avoid the results, they know just how to avoid making mistakes. Everything they do is intentional because they think before they act. Friends may find them to be the “practical one”. Partners find them to be someone they can depend on. They seem truly faithful, though they aren’t too romantic. They respect tradition and tend to be close to people who are older.

To learn more, The Magnetism, Charm, and Attractive Power of Venus is a good article.

The most attractive qualities about these women are their class, their independence, their strength, and their endurance. These women are fully developed and in order. They are capable of taking care of their own lives. They carry a certain “mystery” about them because they are so independent. This is alluring to people who want a real and competent person in their lives. There is a certain luxury that follows these ladies. They seem to be of high esteem, so most people try to step to them right. If you get with them, you will have some serious social and professional connections. They usually are respected in whatever career field they get into. These ladies are cool and in control. Even in the most stressful situations, they know how to remain calm. At the same time, they are honest and straight-forward. These women are purely valuable.

Relationships: They are such busy, busy women that they hardly have time to develop a decent relationship. To add, they are so well-developed on their own, they can make their partners feel a little useless. Their idea of a relationship is something really realistic and practical. A relationship must add to their life rather than hold them back. They tend to be either drawn to partners that boost their status in some way or drawn to partners that aren’t related to their business and are someone they can relax with when the job gets too stressful. They want mature relationships. They tend to want commitment. They don’t have much time for game-playing. They also need a relationship that moves slowly and patiently. They like to take their time getting to know someone before diving in. Of course, once they do dive in, they need a clear direction. They can be really traditional in their idea of relationships. Marriage is usually in the plans in the near future. Of course, they mostly want a chilled relationship where they can relax. They have too much stress in the outer world to be dealing with it in their relationships. They like to enjoy simple luxuries with a partner. These women are not extremely affectionate or flirty. When they like someone, they spend a lot of time with that person and try to be reliable. That’s how they show they care.

They are always concerned about the consequences of their actions. Past relationships really affect their current relationships because they focus on learning from their mistakes. They also try not to let others’ mistakes become their mistakes. If they have friends or family members who have suffered poor relations with partners, they will be distrustful.

These women are constantly falling in love with Saturn, the planet of restriction, pessimism, and structure. His reserve, cool, and detached demeanor makes her feel secure and safe. The restrictions may feel suffocating, but in the end, there are no consequences. Boundaries are respected in this relationship. With him, love takes patience. It’s easy for her to feel relaxed because Saturn has everything under control. He is responsible and knows his limits. It can be a bit chilly and distant here, but always trustworthy. Saturn follows the “rules” of courtship and takes her seriously.

Some are generally conservative in their appearance. Others just like to wear the latest fashions. When dressing for special events, like dates, they vary. Some may be very modest and practical in their attire, not showing an ounce of flesh, wearing dark colors, with simple accessories. They are the classier types. Others may wear more form-fitting attire, showing off their petite figures. They may like leather. All of them look good in suits. If they are more practical, they may have more sensible accessories. If they are more luxurious, they are hardly ever seen without a name-brand item. Gucci, Prada, Calvin Klein, it will have a famous name to it. They generally like to show off their legs and they wear simple make-up that brings out their pretty smiles.

The perfect date for them is going some place that has a sense of luxury and tradition. They wouldn’t mind going to an old-fashioned restaurant that has a sense of history and style. Of course, they also like modern conveniences. The more socially conscious Venus in Caps may like socially prestigious outings, like tickets to the opera or ballet. Rent up that limo or get your car washed and waxed. They like to ride in style. It’s important for their partners to be excellent drivers. They can be very serious about their relationships and may have a long list of “dos and don’ts” when it comes to dates. The simpler girls wouldn’t mind a nice dinner in a comfortable place. They may feel guilty if too much money is spent, especially if it was out of the budget. They also don’t want to feel like they owe anyone anything. Whatever date you plan, make the plans together with them. They don’t mind surprises, but they really need to know what’s going to happen next and need to be able to fit it in their busy schedules. Save the surprises for the actual date, but don’t pop up out of nowhere to take them out. Though they seem capable of paying any bill, if you ask them out, they expect you to pay. Still, they bring their purses just in case. It’s a deal-breaker if they have to pay a large bill, though, especially if it’s because of your irresponsibility. The perfect gift would be something they like, something that matches their taste, something they will actually use, and something that doesn’t wear and tear too quickly. They like flowers, being an earth sign and all, but they don’t have the time to take care of them. Otherwise, they love sensual gifts that smell good and feel good. They really appreciate items that help them reach their goals. Some of them prefer expensive gifts. Whatever gift you give them must reveal your dedication to them. The perfect compliment would be something sincere, yet nothing too elaborate. Just a simple, “You look nice” or “I admire how hard you work”. Too much flattery makes them question your sincerity.

They are honest about everything. They are comfortable rejecting others. But they are always respectful and mature about it.The challenge many suitors face is living up to her high standards for a relationship. She is reserved, cautious, and doesn’t easily express her feelings. It’s hard to break down her wall. If they like you, they are simple and honest about it. They will more than likely just tell you if they are comfortable enough. They don’t smile much, but when they like someone, those lips will widen into a beautiful smile often.

What Venus Means in Your Chart


These women expect all women to be as strong as they are. They believe that all women are capable of taking care of themselves. They don’t have pity on women who act weak (as they think this is just an act for attention). They also don’t believe in the stereotype that all women are emotional. They have strict ideas on women’s behavior in public. They may be surprised to find that some women don’t think the way they do. Of course, they may just see any other ideas as “unrealistic”.

Female Sexuality: There are three types of Venus in Capricorn ladies sexually. There are the more conservative women who believe women should be modest and proper.  Their parents’ influence is strong. They are cautious about their sexual encounters, even when married. These women consider the consequences of everything, including sex and sex appeal. Sometimes, this makes them inexperienced sexually, which also gives them insecurities. They also have a hard time feeling sexy to their partners. They may not admit this, though, as their social reputation is very important. They also want to respect themselves and want others to respect them, too. These women are the types to promote women being more than “sexual”.

The other type of Venus in Capricorn is very experienced sexually and uses sex to gain more prestige or respect. These women seem to care a little less about their reputations, but that’s actually not the case. These women are usually caught between being honest about their sexuality and being respected by others. They may use their material accomplishments to make themselves feel better about their open sexuality, especially if they receive backlash from others. They may also use suitors as a way to boost their self-esteem. They may use their sex appeal to get ahead in their careers or to reach their goals. They may make a career out of sex or their sex appeal. People may think these women lack all self-respect, but it’s actually the opposite. They respect their sexuality so much, they hope to get others to respect their sexuality rather than hide it to gain others’ respect by hiding who they are. These women often encourage other women to love their bodies and own their sexuality. These women hope to gain a sexy reputation.

The last type is open to sexual encounters but only within the context of marriage and commitment. These women may believe in only sex after marriage. Once committed, they may be really open (even taboo) in the bedroom, though they are the types that are private about their sex lives in public. Just like the first types, they care that people respect them in the outside world and care about their public reputations. They are often well-known in their careers or highly respected among their family members, so they feel like people are always watching them. This is mainly the reason why they respond to sex by keeping their sex lives private.

Overall, all of these women associate their sexuality with their reputations. They want people to think they are sexy and pleasing to their partners, at the same time, they don’t want to seem like sluts or desperate women that rely on sex to feed their egos. This is because they really want others to respect them and they want thriving careers. So, yes, they feel the need to conform sexually in some ways (or to at least hide their dirtier streaks). There are a lot of insecurities and guilt-complexes surrounding their sexuality (It doesn’t matter what her Mars sign is). There are plenty of people who make them feel guilty about their sexuality, too.

If you want to arouse them, just be honest and tell them you want to have sex. Communicate with them. They prefer this to you jumping in with physical touch or flirting. Most of them want someone who prepares them for what’s in store. When comfortable, they have a really earthy, simple presence in the bedroom. It’s raw and lusty. They are an earth sign and quite sensual. They like to perfect and improve on their skills. They can actually be open to many different things, no matter how taboo. They like to add to their experience and become “professionals” at whatever they do. Still, they never kiss and tell. What goes on in the bedroom stays there.

If you like a woman that is career-oriented, chilled and unemotional, strong and capable, loyal and committed, you will love these women. If you want to feel needed in your woman’s life, are super affectionate, and/or unconcerned with your reputation, they may not be the one for you. If you have Venus aspecting Saturn, you may relate to this description. Venus in 10th house natives may relate to it a bit as well. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, so your Saturn sign will alter your expression. You can read the description of your Saturn sign within this page. For example, if you have Venus in Capricorn, Saturn in Aquarius, you can read Venus in Aquarius to see if it sounds more familiar to you.

Venus in 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 it’s changes regardless of who’s ready for them.

Venus in Aquarius women are female rebels. They rebel against any strict ideas about femininity. These women are progressive and are all about the latest ideas on “female improvement”. They are always involved in movements, clubs, groups, organizations, or religions. Feminism is one movement they support. They are strict about their freedom and independence. They may be open-minded regarding other things, but this they are firm about. Venus in Aquarius ladies want to be free to change and try new things.

This doesn’t mean they aren’t interested in feminine activities. They tend to like the latest innovations in fashion, make-up, and accessories. They are either really trendy or one step ahead of them! They are very good at starting trends because they know both how to innovative and how to appeal to the general social consciousness. Still, they don’t think their feminine interests should define them. In fact, they don’t tend to put a “gender” label on “hobbies” or “interests”. They can like skirts and dresses and still be interested in sports and technology. They may like to look nice, but they want to be respected for their brains rather than their looks. They need the freedom to be seen in many different ways.

As rebellious as they are, it’s mostly on the superficial level. In the outside world, they are open to trying new things and developing wacky hobbies. They like their dorky sides. They can be erratic and spontaneous among peers and friends. But on the inside, in the world of emotions, they have a conservative view of the world and prefer to keep things light and airy. They are all about emotional boundaries and tend to be strict about this.

These women are super intelligent and great conversationalists. They are always aware of what’s going on in the world. In fact, they have plenty of ideas on how to improve the world around them. Sometimes, they seem a little eccentric and crazy, other times they seem like geniuses. They are public-oriented and career savvy.

These women naturally care about the state of affairs in the world. They are natural humanitarians and altruistic. They’ve probably donated to more charities and other causes than any other women in the zodiac. They notice the little things that others miss. They are very observant and they are ponderers.

As caring as they are, they tend to be disconnected from others on a personal level. They often leave close intimates for outer, public pursuits. This causes a lot of confusion from people who know them well and require closer connections. They seem to care more about the world than their loved ones. Some may get the impression that their “humanitarian causes” are superficial as a result because they don’t really take the time to get to know people personally. They are very general about the people they help. As much as they hate labels, they tend to group people together in cliques or organizations with labels stamped on them. For them, who you hang with is a reflection of you. This is why they are careful about the people they associate with.

As careful as they are with their associations with others, they tend to be around the oddest people or people you would never expect them to be around. They tend to be open-minded when it comes to picking friends. They only require that their friends be just as open-minded. They don’t like to surround themselves around people that judge others (though they may be guilty of doing this from time to time).

Venus in Aquarius women are also careful about their friends because they generally like their freedom and hate emotional drama. They may be friendly and polite with everyone, but they can’t spend too much time with people who are emotionally dramatic. They are cool and aloof themselves. They keep their feelings inside. They aren’t afraid to express their thoughts and opinions, but they know when and how to keep these things to themselves. They know how to give constructive criticism without losing control of themselves and their tempers.

These girls aren’t physical fighters. They believe in civil disobedience. They believe in changing ideas through influence rather than force. They don’t want to be forced to change, so they certainly won’t try to do this to others! Still, they have an authoritative way about them that makes them seem like “know-it-alls”.

These women are generally good girls. They have a certain innocence about them. They are actually a bit shy. They can be really sweet and adorable. They have a certain beauty about them that is hard to describe.

They are a tad bit awkward in social situations. Their fellow female peers love being around them because they are so fun, funny, and awkward! Ladies feel like they can let go and be themselves in their presence. Many women may admire them and find them to be progressive and forward-thinking. Their independence is one of the most admirable traits. They are never too attached to things. They also prove to women that it is possible to pick up and move on from hurts, as they do this so effortlessly. However, some women find them to be self-righteous and flaky. As much as they have ideas they stand for, they don’t like being predictable or defined. While it’s hard to convince them they are wrong, they will change what they stand for just to be unique or different. Their individuality is very important to them. They may claim to associate with certain groups and organizations, but sometimes act contrary to what they stand for just to maintain their freedom from being labeled.

For example, a Venus in Aquarius woman may be a part of the Feminist Movement, but be a stay-at-home mom. When questioned, they will often respond, “Being a stay-at-home mom doesn’t stop me from wanting to be seen as an equal to a man. My job should be respected just like a man’s.” In this case, though they may support movements, they look at these movements as a way to ensure their freedoms, no matter how they choose to exercise those freedoms. They see freedom in the form of “rights” not “requirements”.

If they were to support female suffrage, they would push for women to have the “right” to vote, not the requirement. Therefore, sometimes, they may not choose to vote at all! And for them, that would be exercising their “rights”.

To learn more, The Magnetism, Charm, and Attractive Power of Venus is a good article.

The most beautiful qualities about this woman is her individuality, her friendliness, her kindness, her intelligence, and her quirkiness. She’s anyone’s friend. She is attractive to people of all backgrounds, creeds, and colors. She’s open-minded and willing to try new things. Her trend-setting ways make her a magnet. People often want to follow along just to see what she will try to pull off next! She’s an oddball but it makes her even cuter. She can get away with things others can’t because she times herself well. After all, she is associated with the sign of genius!

Relationships: Venus in Aquarius women are truly independent creatures with a traditional interest in romance. They love that “puppy love” kind of romance. They are always teenagers at heart. They love long walks on the beach. They like sweet, maybe quirky, little gifts. They actually tend to have an idealistic view of romance. They crush easily. They really do like to receive special attention. They really want to feel special and unique to a partner. They generally tend to like partners that are more like best friends. Friend-zone isn’t quite that bad for them as for other women. Still, they feel they should always have the choice to date someone or not. They don’t quite often think about their partner’s choices or feelings regarding this matter. As much as they love all the ambiance of romance, they would like it to have no strings attached. They still want to maintain their freedom to roam about and be involved in the public world. They don’t want baggage or drama. They don’t want any commitments that prevent them from living a free or independent life. They don’t want to be in a relationship where there are expectations. They want both partners to be equals and to work together on everything. They are generally drawn to partners that are flexible and open-minded. They are progressive, so they need partners that are progressive. They also don’t like feeling “owned” in a relationship. Even with a partner, they still feel entitled to certain rights and freedoms. They don’t like being told what to do or how to think and feel. They really hate being criticized.

These women constantly fall in love with two conflicting energies: Saturn and Uranus. Saturn is the planet of restriction, pessimism, and structure. Uranus is the planet of rebellion, eccentricity, and upheaval. They like an odd mix of both. These women love the respect of boundaries that Saturn offers. There is a cool reserve that keeps their relationship free of emotional baggage. But sometimes, a little rebellion against these rules is nice, too. They eccentric nature of Uranus keeps them free from society’s standards. This lover is never boring. He breaks all the rules. At the same time, Saturn creates some rules that prevent things from getting out of hand. With Uranus around, it can create chaos and instability. Love is full of upheaval with him. With Saturn, love is hardly expressed openly and it takes time. Still, freedom is given.

There are many fashion types coming from this sign. They are unpredictable after all. There are those that have a distinct look. They may be known for wearing jackets all the time or wearing a pink hair bow. They may have an eccentric look, like trying punk or Gothic looks. Their style may be very individual. They may also dress to represent some club or subculture they support. The other type of Venus in Aquarius is always changing their fashion identity. They like trying the latest styles, cosmetics, and accessories before anyone else. Their outfits may seem to come right off the runway! They may even be good at designing their own fashions. The last type may be those that are uninterested in fashion and cosmetics, preferring to express their natural beauty. They may be more conservative and modest, preferring to be known for their brains rather than their bodies. These types reject objectification. When going on a date, expect the unexpected. They may usually look really casual on a day to day basis, and then suddenly look like a bombshell when going on a date. It all depends on the date they go on. If you’re taking them to a ball game, for example, they won’t see the need to wear a dress. They may wear all the sports gear necessary to support their favorite team instead. They are always perfect for the occasion. Still, they always manage to add their own personal touch to everything they wear. They want their partners to think they are both attractive and original.

When it comes to the perfect date…surprise them. They really like to go places at random and spontaneous moments. Kidnapping them from work or school (not literally, but maybe :P) and taking them to the beach or to an amusement park would be the perfect way to woo these ladies. They are okay with the dinner, flowers, and candy, too, but the man that is creative and random will win their heart much faster. They also like to go to new places or events. It’s hard to surprise and impress these ladies. They act like they’ve seen and done everything (some have). The easiest way to get around this is to take them to a newly opened restaurant, a rare event, or some place that is difficult to find. If you aren’t able to take them to any special, new places, it’s up to the partner to make the night full of unexpected surprises! Use your creativity. Even when it comes to gift-giving. Make sure it’s both surprising and romantic. The presentation is probably more important than the actual gift. Placing a diamond necklace in a piece of cake or a surprise visit from a florist with a bouquet of roses from you would be good ideas. They like awkward, cheesy compliments. They like being told they are beautiful and amazing and special. They like when you point out random quirks that you like. They prefer sweet compliments to vulgar compliments. And they like intelligent compliments, too.

If they aren’t interested in a suitor, they will be outspoken but polite. They are generally open-minded, so they may give anyone a chance. But if they’ve observed the individual, and found the person to be obnoxious and mean, they will not hesitate to reject that person. However, it’s not their style to be mean. The challenge potential lovers may face is tying these ladies down and picking the right time to do so. They not only love freedom, they need it. Even if they do like someone, these women are super involved in the world. They have many progressive ideas that they want to implement and don’t really have time for commitment. They are cautious about getting with individuals because they want to be with people who won’t confine them to stereotypical roles. If they like someone, the spontaneous Aquarius suddenly shies away. They have a hard time addressing their feelings. They may spend a lot of time communicating with the individual, trying to drop hints, or slipping in their interests within the conversation. The more outspoken types may find the most random or surprising moments to confess their interest. These girls tend to make friends with those people they are interested in.

What Venus Means in Your Chart

Their beliefs on women are molded by the generation they are raised in. They tend to think that other women are just as progressive as they are. They may feel that all women want the same freedoms and rights. They may not be prepared for women to disagree with them. Still, they believe that eventually, other women will catch up to them in time. They are the outspoken ones that speak out on issues they have. They have to be careful not thinking that their view of the world is for the best of everyone.

Female Sexuality: In idea, Venus in Aquarius women are open to all sorts of sexual experiences and identities. They are open-minded. They have no qualms with trying heterosexuality, homosexuality, or even asexuality. Even if they won’t try it all, they respect others’ stand on sexuality. They aren’t afraid of internet sex or even porn. They may even enjoy erotic literature. But “ideas” and “actions” are two different things. Generally, these women could take or leave sex. They are actually asexual creatures that prefer a good friendship to a romp to romp in the bedroom. They are open to everything when they actually have sex, but they seldom do. If they do have sex, it must have no strings attached. As random as they are in thought, life keeps them conservative in this regard. There are a lot of things about sex that bother them. For one, they hate the emotional attachment some people get after the experience and they are afraid of getting too involved emotionally themselves. They don’t want to feel weighed down with feelings. Second, they hate the idea of getting pregnant when they’re not ready (which is usually never) and they don’t want to feel tied down with a family or extra baggage. Some may believe in sex after marriage, but they also don’t like the idea of marriage too tough unless they are sure the relationship will remain the same it was before marriage (in this way, they hate change just like any other fixed sign). Some may like having a friendship with benefits sort of thing, where both parties agree to stay friends no matter what happens. In this case, they may be very open sexually.

In modern times, Venus in Aquarius women can explore sex without worrying about having children. This is why they love progress! We have more tools to help prevent unwanted pregnancies. Venus in Aquarius women also like homosexuality for this reason as well. They don’t have to worry about pregnancy then. Of course, these women always have to live with the fact that people will not accept their open views on sexuality.

Still, there is always emotional baggage when dealing with sexual encounters. They are particular about their sexual partners as a result. They don’t want anyone possessive or anyone desperate for it all the time. They may like to explore sex in a way that doesn’t involve actual physical penetration. Venus in Aquarius women are not the types to dress overly sexual or exploit their sexuality. They don’t really care for a whole lot of attention in that regard. There are some of them that want to be respected for their brains so much they reject sexual expression. They tend to have a lot of self control regarding this. But they are not afraid to express their sexual ideas or tell others where they stand sexually. Sex is more of a mental thing rather than anything physical. And they really dislike sexual partners that are all about the physical.

These women aren’t easily aroused. Their thoughts must be touched first. They are more aroused by someone with an intelligent mind. Spark up an engaging conversation. Offer to try something new. They will be more aroused by someone who is more like a friend than a lover. They will be aroused in a chilled environment. In the bedroom, they are light, fun, and open to new techniques, but they have a bit of reserve and distance. They aren’t extremely emotional or passionate. Believe it or not, they may have a hard time letting go, being reluctant to tie themselves down to someone else and fearing messy emotions. They may love a good conversation even when making love. They may love to play with “toys”. If you want to get them out of their minds and into their bodies, be creative. Let it happen casually without a big to-do.

If you like women who are independent, good friends, open-minded, both sweet and intellectual, you will love these women. If you get emotionally involved sexually, want a traditional woman, looking for a partner you can spend lots of time with, or looking for stability and consistency, they are not the ones for you. If you have Venus aspecting Saturn or Uranus, you may relate to this description. Venus in 11th house natives may relate to it a bit as well. Aquarius is ruled by Saturn and Uranus, so your Saturn and Uranus signs will alter your expression. You can read the description of your Saturn and Uranus sign within this page. For example, if you have Venus in Aquarius, Saturn or Uranus in Pisces, you can read Venus in Pisces to see if it sounds more familiar to you. Any planets or house placement cusps in Taurus or Libra will be affected by this planet.

Venus in 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 normal reality 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…

The women of this placement usually fit the feminine ideal. The reason for this is not because they care about their reputation or social status. They are actually recluses and prefer to be isolated from others. They are generally really shy. They fit the feminine ideal because they are easily moved and inspired by the women around them. They are always admiring and looking to someone else as a guide rather than seeing their own potentials. These women always have heroines that they look up to. When they want to be like someone else, they will try to embody the qualities they admire so much. Sometimes, they better see their own potentials through other women, almost projecting their own strengths on others. They don’t often have a whole lot of esteem and look for others to empower them and make them feel stronger.

They definitely feel much stronger in numbers, but they are scared of being hated or judged. They are afraid of stronger personalities because they generally like to go with the flow rather than worry about things. They get easily stressed out around “Type A” personalities. Because of this, they tend to be drawn to more easy-going company.

While they get lonely and lost easily and want to connect with someone, they also need quiet time alone and hate drama. Trying to find a balance can be hard for them and confusing for others.

Venus in Pisces women don’t like showing their vulnerabilities, so they may seem a little cold or distant to mask their weaknesses. But they spend a lot of time with themselves because they are so sensitive. They are so in tune with the vibes around them, they often need to take a step back to really understand their own vibes. They can easily understand how people feel and think. They are excellent listeners and they can definitely keep a secret. They really absorb too much around them. This makes them weak physically at times and they tend to tire easily. They often reflect the ideas of someone else rather than their own. They must be careful of repeating other people’s ideas and passing it off as their own.

Some of these women’s favorite hobbies are sleeping and dreaming. They also enjoy reading, watching movies, and surfing the internet. They love to escape from everyday pressures. They have a large imagination. They can also be a little naive. It’s easy to reach their heart with things that sound too good to be true. They are easily drawn into subcultures that provide an alternative lifestyle. Many of them might be interested in Kpop and have a huge obsession with Korea. Some of them might be fascinated with Frozen and anything associated. Venus in Pisces can be impressionable and can find inspiration for their dreams anywhere!

These women make excellent friends when they’re around their friends, but it’s hard to rely on them to do important things. Again, they get stressed out over little things. They might be late for their best friend’s birthday party or they may cancel dates with friends for no apparent reason. This isn’t because they are phony, but they need a lot of time to themselves to build themselves up. Their moods change from day to day. This may surprise people who don’t understand this side to them. They like to relax and take things easy. They don’t want to be around people who don’t understand them.

These women enjoy all the things that make a girl a girl. They usually tend to have strong artistic, creative leans. They see the art in all kinds of fashion, cosmetics, and accessories. Their vibes are tuned into the latest fashions, even if they don’t particularly care to wear them. Venus in Pisces can appreciate the beauty in others without actually seeing that beauty in themselves. Though these women may be girly, they have many different faces. Being the planet of illusion, they can really be any girl they want to be! They tend to change faces according to who they’re around. Again, this isn’t because they are phony all the time. It’s mostly because they want to get along with everyone, and they easily merge with people of various backgrounds. They must be careful not to get with the wrong types of people. They will easily get caught up doing things that prove detrimental.

Venus in Pisces women are often envious of other women who are able to go after what it is they actually want. These tender-hearted, gentler souls have a hard time standing up for themselves and being noticed. They have a hard time making a move. They tend to admire women who can so easily do things they can’t do. What they may not realize is just how many people actually admire them! They don’t generally think too much of themselves and actually consider themselves underdogs. Other people may find them to be sweet, kind, playful, and easy-going. They may not be the most popular women around, but no one ever says they dislike them.

These women may not seem outgoing, but when alone, they can accomplish anything! Without others pressuring them, they are quite independent. They are capable of taking care of themselves when they don’t have to deal with others.

Of course, some of their peers may find them to be deceptive. Some women may recognize their fickleness and wishy-washy nature. They never seem to stick with anything and seem uncomfortable with everything. They may annoy women who wish they would just speak up and do something. They have too much to consider before they act. They have their own methods of doing things and other women may not understand this. They really can’t tell others “no”. They are so deeply in touch with their own inner feelings, they don’t want to do to others they wouldn’t want done to themselves. They hate hurting others’ feelings and creating bad blood between themselves and others. Sometimes, they can be manipulative or play one against another. They may have secret complaints that they tell to one party but may say something different to someone else. They also try to get friends to speak for them rather than saying what they want confidently. Sometimes, they also will deny they dislike someone or avoid people they don’t like rather than tell them they dislike them. They tend to keep their friendship circle tight.

Despite their tendencies, they are genuinely caring and compassionate. They always try to do the right thing by others. If they do something wrong, it’s easy to make them feel guilty about it. They have strong moral and ethical values. They tend to merge their moral principles with others, seeing how all people share a desire to do the right thing.

With the right support and push, they can become excellent leaders because they are good at uniting others under one goal, idea, or principle. They are open to people’s differences, they are good at sharing ideas, and they are creative about putting their ideas out in the public. Best of all, they are generally humble about it. They may need help making things more concrete, but they are good at inspiring others and making them feel more positive about their goals. They encourage people to dream big.

To learn more, The Magnetism, Charm, and Attractive Power of Venus is a good article.

These women transcend the physical realm when it comes to beauty. Their beauty is on a plane us “lower” folks can’t understand or appreciate. They see beauty in terms of the inner workings of the soul, through a beautiful mindset. In other words, they believe many things can be beautiful besides the outer appearance. They truly believe there is beauty in everything in the universe. These women often have many beautiful qualities themselves, whether on the outside or purely on the inside. Their ideologies translate outward towards others. People often have at least one good thing to say about them. They often absorb their environment so well, they can come off different to many people. They are good at projecting an image of beauty towards others through visual art, like through paintings, film, or photography. They best translate their charms through these mediums because they are actually typically shy around others. Not everyone will notice their charms on a more intimate level, but those who get hold of them will realize their luck! No one is as sweet and demure as these ladies. There is a pure quality about them that seems both enchanting and vulnerable. Others just feel a need to jump to their aid and assist them. Their innocent eyes draw others in all the time. There is also a mysterious air about them. They seem both easy and difficult to really tie down.

Relationships: These women love to dream. They are content with their romantic fantasy rather than a real romantic life. Sometimes, they hope their romantic dreams will come true and will go throughout life looking for the perfect partner to fit their love story. These are the types of women that get caught up in literature like Twilight and hope to find that vampire-like man. Or maybe they are interested in Kpop group EXO, dreaming of meeting one of the members and falling in love. Whatever the love scenario, the idea is usually beautiful and idealistic. In their relationship vision, their partners love them always, no matter what. There are no problems, no arguing. They are always attractive and special. Anything they ask for is done without rejection or complaint. They are soul mates. Their partners are never disappointed. Life is always amazing when with their lovers.

Back to reality and we realize that Venus in Pisces seems to always be in their own romantic world. They are always searching for a “Mr. Right”. They are always trying to set love up like a scene in a play. Unfortunately, we can’t pick and choose who we want to love us (or who we love). Sometimes, love comes in unexpected ways. Their problem is not seeing people for who they really are and seeing a perception or vision of them. The reality will reveal real human imperfections. Not everyone will accept everything these women offer. Venus in Pisces women will continuously have to make sacrifices to really achieve their dream. Sometimes, they end up losing those who are really right for them, all while chasing a “dream”. Even when they do reach that dream, sometimes it’s not all it’s cracked up to be, either. There are always pros and cons to everything. No situation is ideal. They have to learn that it takes work for all of us to make relationships work. They view relationships in the context of love. For them, love is forgiving, acceptance, kindness, and sincerity. Love is pure and innocent. They are therefore looking for partners without standards, partners that don’t cause any problems in their lives, partners that make them feel like they are strong, amazing, courageous, or anything they dream of being. It’s not realistic at all. They may feel ashamed because of this so they might keep these dreams stored at the back of their minds. They don’t want to to be judged or criticized. They know they can’t help desiring their dream-like relationship.

At the root of their dreamy natures are deep insecurities. They don’t feel that unique or special. They don’t feel like they are able to conquer the world the way they want to. They are hoping someone will come and “save them” from themselves and help them escape what they feel is a harsh and unsympathetic world. Instead of having to change, they just finally want to be accepted for who they are. They are truly tired of molding to please. But the issue isn’t that no one accepts them, but that they haven’t learned to accept themselves. Until they do that, they will always feel like something is missing in their relationships and they will feel insecure. Until they do that, they will always feel like to have to make sacrifices in order to please others. These women may have a hard time feeling good enough in a real relationship. In their dreams, they can do anything. In real life, everyone has limitations and they have many. They are hard on themselves because they expect too much of themselves. And when they are hard on themselves, it makes it harder on their partners as well. Their partners may not be alone, but they may still end up feeling lonely. These women may often feel this way at times, too.

In an actual relationship, these women are playful and sweet and flirty (in a subtle way), but a little distant. They may like to chill with their partners and do quiet activities. Still, they need some time alone with their thoughts. They have a hard time with commitment and are really freedom-loving at heart. Too much pressure is sure to make them run away. They are too sensitive to be criticized. Whatever you have to say, say it honestly but gently.

These ladies are constantly falling in love with Jupiter and Neptune. Jupiter is the planet of expansion, optimism, and abundance. Neptune is the planet of imagination, dreams, and delusions. These women are in love with the Neptune the most. He’s dreamy! Everything about him seems to have stepped out of her favorite movie, book, and/or music video. He’s everything she imagined a lover would be. He whisks her away from this harsh world. Neptune isn’t always understood by everyone else, but this lady understands him, no matter what anyone thinks. Jupiter makes a great lover as well. His positive spirit keeps her in bliss. There is never anything going wrong in her love affair with Jupiter. He only sees the good in her. He adds so much to her life, expanding her world beyond normal, everyday thinking. He’s her savior. There is much wealth and happiness with Jupiter. They both live happily ever after.

As far as fashion goes, they are actually not superficial women. They tend to dress comfortably majority of the time. But they look amazing in everything! They honestly wouldn’t mind someone picking their clothes out for them. When going on dates, they are usually unsure about what to wear overall. They tend to have a creative and artistic mind, but they have a hard time translating that in their actual wardrobe. Some of them have such abstract visions, they look really eclectic sometimes. Often times, they settle with something feminine and something that may be generally attractive to most people. They especially sacrifice their personal style to be more attractive to someone they really like. Other women influence their viewpoint on clothing, too. If they are currently inspired by women who encourage being modest, they will choose modest looks. If they are currently inspired by a rock star, they may wear punk attire. Whoever inspires their look will have the most influence on their style. Depends on when you catch them. They are generally shy, so they never wear anything too revealing. They tend to be colorful. They have clothes in many colors, patterns, or designs.

Their idea of a perfect date is something that sets them in their favorite scenario. They love just spending time with someone they love. Treat them gently. Care for them. They can go on any date as long as their partners are romantic and sweet. They are not about the money. In fact, they see love as something that goes beyond the material world. Material things do not necessarily impress them. They appreciate anything you give them, but it’s never the fancy gifts you give them or the fancy places you take them. They are just happy to be on their partners’ minds. If they feel that soul connection, like they were meant to be with you, everything will feel right to them. They usually use their vibes to determine whether someone is right for them. They often tend to see things others miss. In this case, they must be careful of seeing things that aren’t there. They may see someone as sweet when they are really evil. They generally want to see the good in everyone, but not everyone deserves their kindness. They must be careful of being used and abused.

As far as compliments, they can take them or leave them. They want to know they are loved more than anything. The most important words for them are “I love you”. They want to feel like their partners have eyes only for them. They want to feel that their partners love being around them. That three letter word is worth more than any compliments. Most compliments just make them shy.

If the person that asked them out seemed really nice and sweet, even if they don’t like them, they will feel bad about rejecting the person. They can easily put themselves in someone else’s shoes. They try to be nice. They may avoid the person or date the person just so they won’t hurt the person’s feelings. If they’ve observed an individual, and found the person to be mean and rude to others, they will definitely reject the person without looking back. They may not be rude, but they will be honest. The challenge many potential lovers face is actually tying them down to a relationship and then trying to live up to their ideal  expectations. They really assume the best in people and see what they want to see in others. It’s hard for individuals to live up to their “perfect visions”. Staying on their good side can seem hard because they are so sensitive to any negativity. While it’s easy to land a date with these ladies, it’s difficult to get theAside from this, they dislike duty and routine, believe it or not. They like to go with the flow and may not be reliable in a stable relationship. They don’t like hurting feelings, so they may not always make a definite choice in love. It’s hard to get them to commit. If they like someone, they are super shy about showing it. They may act more sweet, demure, and nicer than normal. They have a soft flirting style. They may show more of an interest in everything the individual does, asking questions or observing. They tend to dress to impress the object of their affections. They may be a little moody, playing the role of “hopeless romantic”. It’s hard for these shy souls to get their feelings across because they are so often misunderstood.

These women tend to feel that all women are sensitive and more caring than men. They generally do feel that all women have a need to feel understood. But they can understand that not every woman will see things the way they do. In fact, they are capable of adapting new ideas into their own minds.

Female Sexuality: These women aim to please, but they are generally shy of the whole sexual experience. They need a gentle, considerate, and attentive partner until they become more comfortable with their own sexuality. They are more open to alternative sexual practices like phone sex or porn. The actual act is something a little deeper for them. At the end of their fantasies, they are often giving their bodies to their lovers. Many of them fear the experience will not be as they dreamed. They are also afraid for the dream to be over. Sometimes, they feel confusion over their sexuality, not sure what they desire. Many of them enjoy a pure relationship, released from the chains of the physical. If only we could procreate without intercourse! Venus in Pisces women would be all aboard.

Their moral and ethical beliefs influence their sexuality as well. They are usually tuned into current trends regarding female sexuality. They actually like to read books regarding relationships and sex. They often seek advice. Depending on their stand, they may or may not be open to everything. It’s best to discuss this woman’s ideas. Partners may have to help her reveal and overcome her insecurities. No matter how open she is sexually, these women never feel good enough because they are always searching for the ideal sexual situation rather than just letting go and releasing their inner desires. More than likely sex will be pure and looked at in the context of love-making.

Venus in Pisces women can be alluring. They usually give themselves completely to their lovers and let their partners take the lead. Some Venus in Pisces women may act fragile and innocent to entice their lovers. They need to be careful of allowing partners to just do anything to them sexually, even things that are dangerous. When they let down their defenses, they can be extremely vulnerable. These women may secretly like “humiliation” in sex. They may love wearing costumes as a form of foreplay (their ruling planet, Neptune, is associated with illusion). Still, most need to know they are loved. The easiest way to arouse their sexual desire is to keep telling them how much you love them, how much they complete your life, and how much you appreciate all they have done for you. Really boost their esteem as much as you can. Create a romantic scenario.

If you love a woman who is sweet, accepting, forgiving, and dreamy, this is the woman for you. If you’re more physical, realistic, impatient with passive people, and/or looking for someone more open and confident, she may not be the one for you. If you have Venus aspecting Jupiter or Neptune, you may relate to this description. Venus in 12th house natives may relate to it a bit as well. Pisces is ruled by Jupiter traditionally and Neptune, so your Jupiter and Neptune signs will alter your expression. You can read the description of your Jupiter and Neptune signs within this page. For example, if you have Venus in Pisces, Jupiter or Neptune in Aries, you can read Venus in Aries to see if it sounds more familiar to you. Any planets or house placement cusps in Taurus or Libra will be affected by this planet.

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

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.

Mars in Taurus and Libra

Neptune in Virgo

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.

12 houses chart 2






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



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.













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.


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








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


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.

trine symbol


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.

sextile symbol


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, 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

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.

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.

The Mars symbol looks like this:

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.

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

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. 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 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 but they also are 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’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.

Female celebrities: Uma Thurman, Natalie Portman, Sandra Bullock,  Meryl Streep, Milla Jovovich, Kate Winslet, Kylie Minogue, Victoria Beckham, Courtney Love,  Coco Chanel, Naomi Campbell, Demi Lovato,  Jennifer Garner, Carmen Electra, Eva Mendes, Barbra Streisand, Rene Descartes,  Rita Ora, Tina Fey, Diana Ross, Virginia Woolf, Bette Page, Emma Roberts, Aretha Franklin

Kpop idols: Jessica (SNSD, Girls’ Generation), CL (2ne1), ChoRong (APink), HaYoung (Apink), Jiyoon (4Minute), Fei (Miss A), Chanmi (AOA), Hyelim (Wonder Girls), Lizzy (After School), E-Young (After School), Sunhwa (Secret), Irene (Red Velvet), Dami (EXID)

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

Kpop idols: Sunny (SNSD Girls’ Generation), Amber (f(x)), YooKyung (Apink), SoHyun (4Minute), Hyomin (T-ara), Hwayoung (T-ara), Yura (Girl’s Day), Yuna (AOA), Youkyoung (AOA), Yeeun (Wonder Girls), Jungah (After School), Raina (After School), Kaeun (After School), Ailee, Joy (Red Velvet)

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. 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. 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. But if someone is sweet, generous, and treats them like royalty, that’s even better than some rich 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.

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.

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 criminal types. Regardless, these women will take the humble over the loud and brash. They generally like to be approached in a cool and natural manner. 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 a savior. 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 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.

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. 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.

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.

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 need to spend a lot of time with someone before they can feel any connection. They 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. 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 deal with. 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.

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. If any man approaches them, they are looking for someone with an edge about them. The approach has to be passionate, magnetic, 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, it has to be an air of mystery and swag about you. They are attracted to individuals who are rough and hard to obtain. These women are passionate, so they are looking for someone who has the same passion that they do. 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. 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. She secretly wants to be free of her own pain, so she’s looking for someone who helps her forget the past. 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.

Female celebrities: Taylor Swift, Jennifer Aniston, Alyssa Milano, Grace Kelly, Oprah Winfrey, Christy Turlington, Khloe Kardashian, Shania Twain, Jennifer Connelly, Marie Curie, Michelle Williams, Mischa Barton, Mandy Moore, LeAnn Rimes, Shailene Woodley, Betty White

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. 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.

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 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. 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.

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.

Female celebrities: Lady Gaga, Niki Minaj, Shakira, Christina Aguilera, Julia Roberts, Sharon Stone, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Katy Perry, Megan Fox, Lindsay Lohan, Katie Holmes, Gwen Stefani, Bjork, Anne Hathaway, Drew Barrymore, Aaliyah, Mary-Kate Olsen, Ashley Olsen, Amanda Bynes, Katharine Hepburn, Jessie J, Mia Farrow, Rihanna

Mars in Aquarius

One word description: Shocking

These woman 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. 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. 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. 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 re-charge their energy.

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 into sub-cultures because of their interest in all forms of art. It’s not unusual to find them involved with punk, emo, hip-hop, harajuku, hallyu, or other such artistic sub-cultures. They are usually drawn to individuals who carry an interest in their subculture of interest. They tend to be influenced by the standards of the times. They may even be interested in counter-cultures because of their intuitive, psychic feelings and vibes that move their deeply sympathetic nature. They care for those who are marginalized. 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.

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 without thoughts of luxury, though luxuries are alright for them as well. 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.

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.

Female celebrities: Marilyn Monroe, Paris Hilton, Michelle Pfeiffer, Elizabeth Taylor, Heidi Klum, Tina Turner, Ava Gardner, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Billie Holiday, Christina Hendricks, Kelly Rowland, Annie Lennox, Ellie Goulding, Kimora Lee Simmons, Glenn Close, Rosie O’Donnell, Shirley Temple, Sarah MacLachlan

Venus-the planet of love and beauty

Venus-the planet of love and beauty

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.

*WARNING: The Following Article is Lengthy. Sorry About the Length. If you enjoy in-depth information, this is for you.

*WARNING: The Following Article is intended for those 18 years old and older.

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 Venus Signs

If you don’t know ANYTHING about other signs besides the zodiac one you heard of, and you have no clue how to get and read a natal chart, 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 to situations 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 planets with their own sign.

So maybe you’ve always said “Hey I’m a Scorpio.” Again, that’s your SUN SIGN. Your Moon sign might be in a completely different sign, and would have a completely different meaning in your life.

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.

I’m not saying LIBRAS are weak. But all the planets have signs they are weakest in and strongest, and this has to do with how alike or similar they are versus different or challenging. Everything the Sun represents in astrology is so different from what Libra represents…which can create stress for Sun in Libras sometimes. But it makes them humbler than everyone else at the same time. Still, we wouldn’t want to look to the Sun too much to decide romantic compatibility.

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 VENUS SIGNS.

The Venus symbol looks like this:


The sign next to this symbol is your Venus sign. So, now that you have your natal chart and your Venus sign, let’s get started.

Venus is the planet of love (more like instant, superficial romance), beauty, pleasure, attraction, charm, possessions, society, friendships, and our social status. For women, it often reflects her inner “heroine”, the woman she admires within herself and other women. It reflects the woman she hopes to be, the woman she “dresses” herself after. It represents where she stands in society. It’s her ideal.

In a Man’s chart, it represents his ideal, too. But usually he projects this onto women rather than other men. Venus represents the woman that he is attracted to, a woman that turns him on. This is a woman he wants for a friend, a woman he can hang out with. This woman is his “crush”. This woman is often sexy without trying. This is the woman he wouldn’t mind asking out on a date. Whether he will date her long-term or even marry her is a different story, but with Venus, he’s romantically attracted to her. He wouldn’t mind having her around to show off. He wouldn’t mind having a nice time out with her. He would feel physically comfortable around this woman. Even while married, he’d hope to keep this side of her alive otherwise he will develop new crushes.

Venus is very superficial. It’s guided by the senses: Touch, smell, vision, all the physical senses classify as “love” under Venus’s domain. To a certain extent, we do love those people we are physically attracted to. In fact, to a certain degree, physical attraction is how we spot someone we like first. Even though getting to know a person can help a relationship last, you can’t approach people without observing how they “seem” based on your senses first. To a certain extent, how someone appears does count to a certain degree. It’s not possible to see someone from the inside before we get to know someone. The physical senses must take place first in order for us to want to get to know someone more and find what’s inside a person.

Venus represents how a man (or how anyone) expresses love and affection, too. This represents how he shows love. This represents what he would do to show a girl he loves her. Of course, his Mars sign will show his tactic when approaching her, like whether he’s up-front or indirect. But any gifts he gives her or any dates he takes her on will be shown through his Venus sign. His ruling planet influences how this turns out.

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 your Venus is in. If you have Venus in Pisces, for example, you would also look at your Neptune (and possibly Jupiter) sign as well. If your Neptune is in Aquarius, that would influence your Venus in Pisces. Sometimes, the guy’s ruling planet may give more detail into what he’s interested in romantically.

However, though Venus will decide what woman he’s attracted to, he may not feel comfortable emotionally, like he can be himself. Usually, a man has to feel that she can meet his emotional needs before he completely commits to a woman. Men often don’t feel women understand them. The hardest thing for men to do is open up about their feelings. Society often shames a man for expressing them. And they don’t want to appear vulnerable. Some women don’t even feel men should be concerned with their emotional needs, either. But men do have feelings. Feelings can’t be controlled. So if someone commits to him, he needs to be able to know that she will meet his emotional needs and be accepting of them. So, men subconsciously project the Moon onto a woman they desire as well. The MOON SIGNS would better reflect the committed relationship. So if you want to get him to ask you to be his girlfriend, a good start would be to check his Moon sign.

If you want him to marry you, the whole chart must be considered.

Since Venus represents a man’s ideal type, I thought I’d help ladies out. This can apply to you, too, ladies. Venus represents everyone’s “crush” on a physical level, though women may gravitate more to their Mars signs. Mars is the planet of action and aggression. Women may care more about what a man does and how he acts or behaves rather than how a man appears or how charming he is (though women like this, too). Men may equally pay attention to what a woman does or how she behaves, 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 Venus is more instant for men.

Basically, for men, Venus is the first step towards “crushing” on a woman. Mars is the second step towards “crushing” on a woman, but he may not realize it.

Moon is the first step towards committing in a relationship. Sun is the last step towards committing in a relationship, but he may not realize it.

This article will help women get some insight as to HOW they can attract a man they like. But I recommend that you be YOURSELF. You never want to pretend. In the end, it will show whether you TRULY fit his ideal type. Still, it would be useful to know how he views love and women (at least a little bit, since the whole chart gives the complete story). Then you can see if it matches up with your views. You don’t have to have the same Venus signs to be compatible. You don’t even have to have the same Venus signs in order for him to “see” his Venus qualities in you. Remember, he’s projecting his own qualities. He may see sides to you that’s attractive to him 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 Venuses in order for him to be attracted to you. This is just what HE likes in his MIND. This is his “ideal”. How it comes about in person is entirely up to him and his experiences with his own planet Venus.

This article can help those who have also been ASKED out. It can show them what he saw in you when he asked you out. That guy that dropped his number when he saw you eating lunch alone? Something about you struck his Venus sign and you may not have known it.

For those of you who are Lesbian, Gay, or Bi-sexual, it depends on the planet you identify with. If you identify with your Mars, you will project your Venus more. Therefore, you may be more attracted to a Venusian 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 men are more than likely to project their own Venus rather than own up to it, causing much confusion for women interested in men. For this article, I used the article “he”, but if you’re a woman interested in women or a man interested in men, you could observe these signs, too.

Even heterosexual women should read this because VENUS could even apply to the MEN women are interested in on the subconscious level. Many heterosexual women don’t realize it, but these are the things they’re looking for in men as well!

Still, society is harder on all men and their expressions of Venus, whether Homosexual or Heterosexual. This is why I have to cater this to men 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 men’s “ideal”. This is so you can get an understanding of HIS mind, and see if it really is suited to the kind of person you feel you are. If there are things about him that you KNOW don’t feel like you, then maybe you should let him know what you’re about and see if he’s alright with that. But don’t EVER pretend to be someone you’re not. 

I’m going to go through the signs and explain how men’s Venus signs affect their choices in love.

Venus signs appear in this order

Venus in Aries

Venus in Taurus

Venus in Gemini

Venus in Cancer

Venus in Leo

Venus in Virgo

Venus in Libra

Venus in Scorpio

Venus in Sagittarius

Venus in Capricorn

Venus in Aquarius

Venus in Pisces

It’s pretty long, so you can click one of the signs above, which will take you to the Venus sign of interest. I’m really sorry about the length. I still hope you readers enjoy.

Sun is at home in Leo, exalted in Aries, in detriment in Aquarius, and falling in Libra

Moon is at home in Cancer, exalted in Taurus, in detriment in Capricorn, and falling in Scorpio

Mercury is at home in Gemini and Virgo, exalted in Virgo and some say Aquarius, in detriment in Sagittarius and Pisces, and falling in Pisces and some say Leo

Venus (the target of our topic) is at home in Taurus and Libra, exalted in Pisces, in detriment in Scorpio and Aries, and falling in Virgo

Mars is at home in Aries and Scorpio, exalted in Capricorn, in detriment in Taurus and Libra, and falling in Cancer

Jupiter is at home in Sagittarius and Pisces, exalted in Cancer, in detriment in Gemini and Virgo, and falling in Capricorn

Saturn is at home in Capricorn and Aquarius, exalted in Libra, in detriment in Cancer and Leo, and falling in Aries

Uranus is at home in Aquarius, exaltation is undetermined, but said to be in Scorpio, in detriment in Leo, and said to be falling in Taurus

Neptune is at home in Pisces, exaltation is undetermined, but said to be in Cancer and/or Leo, in detriment in Virgo, and said to be falling in Capricorn and/or Aquarius

Pluto is at home in Scorpio, exaltation is undetermined, but said to be between the signs of Leo and Aries (mostly Leo), in detriment in Taurus, and said to be falling in Aquarius and Libra (mostly Aquarius)

When a planet is at home in a sign, it has entered the sign it rules. That sign is most like the planet.  For example, the Sun and Leo are very much alike in their representations and descriptions. So when the Sun enters Leo, it pretty much rules over the sign.

When a planet is exalted in a sign, the planet works easier in the sign. This helps the planet gain benefits faster, but maintenance isn’t as efficient as the sign ruled by the planet. For example, the Sun can work easier in Aries because they are similar in some ways, and different in beneficial ways. But the Sun can’t operate as consistently or totally in Aries as it can in the sign it rules over. Mars will have the final say because it’s Aries’ ruling planet.

When a planet is in detriment in a sign, that means the sign is totally different from the planet. For example, the Sun and Aquarius often represent too different things. The Sun is about the self and ego. Aquarius is about the group, humanity, and objective truth. Aquarius deals with everything but THE SELF. The Sun, the planet, is ALL ABOUT THE SELF. So when the Sun enters Aquarius (these are usually the people who say their sign is “Aquarius”), the Sun has to find different ways to express itself or risk not expressing itself at all.

When a planet is falling in a sign, it’s hard for the planet to open up in this sign because they aren’t too alike and they don’t agree. Benefits come slowly, but the outcome could be better than expected. For example, the Sun is falling in Libra. The Sun is about the SELF and EGO. Libra is about OTHERS. The last thing the Sun wants to think about is others. So when the Sun is in Libra, the Sun has a difficult time finding ways to properly express itself without losing itself.

Venus in Aries

One word description: Fun

If the man has Venus in Aries, his ideal type is someone who has an animal sexiness. Yes, he likes his ideal type to be wild. He likes someone who is exciting, passionate, and fun. They want someone who is direct, someone who wants THEM. Does she have devious intentions? He doesn’t mind. The thrill keeps him chasing. They really want to feel WANTED. He likes individuals who are decisive and know what they want. They like people who are steamy hot. That hot, fun person dancing at the party? That person is going to be his crush. He’s liking the passion. He’s liking the drive. He loves the desire he sees in this person. He wants someone who connects with his inner man. This man is more attracted to women who own up to their Mars signs, unlike most men. He really likes what a woman “does”. While, many men may see this as a threat, he won’t. This man wants someone who is confident and knows how to work their own charms, no matter how different they are.

Many of these men are also attracted to athletic people. They often prefer thin individuals to thick individuals, but they can dig some booty, too, as long as there are curves in the right places. They tend to like tomboyish women. This man also likes to be around original people, someone who does their own thing.

An individual who is independent and assertive may also be attractive. These men tend to often ignore the shy person for the free-spirited and open person. They just can’t help it. They like the people who are youthful and don’t mind playing laser tag for their first date, or don’t mind playing basketball. He will be drawn to the active types. He’s even attracted to strong individuals. Many of these men take individuals at “face value” (Aries ruling the head), so they are a sucker for an attractive face.

There are some Venus in Aries men that like sweeter and innocent girls though. Aries is a sign that rules over the first hints of spring, a time of freshness and innocence. These men might like girls who have a bit of innocence, possibly in a carefree type of innocence. They also like their egos stroked and like to take the lead in love. They are often drawn to girls who sometimes allow them to do just that. But they don’t care for women who are too agreeable all the time. They like some challenge and honesty.

He expresses his love through sex more than the other men do, so he wants someone who isn’t rigid in that way. He likes the slutty types, even if it’s just behind closed doors. He loves someone with a healthy sexuality. He doesn’t think that’s bad! At the same time, he respects a woman who presents a challenge for him. He may not respect someone he can easily get in the bed with.  Their eyes are drawn to the person that all eyes are on…though all of this depends on his MARS sign. Venus is in detriment in this sign because this sign isn’t usually looking for anything serious. They are impulsive in love. Aries is ruled by Mars, the planet of war, aggression, action, and sex. Love is often tangled with sex. Love can be aggressive, active, and a battlefield for this lover. He’s into people that are confrontational. He doesn’t really draw himself to the Mary-Jane types. He wants someone who speaks up, someone who stands up for themselves. Maybe not towards him, but definitely towards other people. He also wants someone who’s open about their feelings and not playing games.

Physically, they are drawn to muscular, healthy, fit bodies. They tend to like individuals who are thin. Aries rules the head, so, again, they tend to like attractive faces and beautiful, distinct hair. As far as clothes go, less is more! They want confident people in their lives, so show off your hot bod! Bold colors really catch their attention, but they mostly pay attention to that individual wearing all the confidence.

Sexually, they are turned on by partners that are passionate and active. They want their partners to show enthusiasm and courage in the bedroom. They like people who can let go, get a little wild, and try new things. They may be initially attracted to a sex partner that submits to them, but if the person doesn’t take initiative in some way, he will grow bored.

If he asked you out, you probably came across to him as sexy and exciting, fun and challenging. You must be one hot fox!

How do I know he likes me? He’ll be straight-forward about it eventually. It will be obvious. He may vocally tell you how attractive you are. If he doesn’t show any signs, other factors could influence his decision not to express it.

TURN OFF: They don’t like stuck-up individuals. They don’t like people who follow the crowd and care too much about what other people are thinking. They like to feel like they can be themselves and have fun. They like people who want to take chances, so too many “rules” will turn them off.

After this Venus in Aries man is done watching you have fun, he may now want to observe how much more “fun” you could be. Now, he’s looking to have his idea of “fun”. Let’s say, the fun has only begun. He wants to see if you can keep spicing up his life. There are so many amazing women out here, and trying to keep this man’s interest is hard. This is when Mars comes into place. This is probably one of the main reasons Venus is considered in detriment in Aries. Mars is considered the planet opposite Venus.

Mars rules over Aries. It is the planet of energy, the sex drive, and the actions a person takes. Men own up to this planet, so he’s looking for a woman who can keep up with him. They are looking for some action in their lives. Read the Venus sign that best fits your Mars sign and see if it feels more familiar to you. For instance, if your Mars is in Taurus, read Venus in Taurus.

Venus in Taurus

One word description: Womanly

These men tend to love beautiful women of all shapes and sizes, but most tend to like a well-formed body over anything.  Yes, they can be very physical and superficial men sometimes. They can’t help it. Beautiful appearances catch their eyes, no matter how much they try to deny it. A well-dressed individual with attractive company goes a long way with these men. His crush is usually the best-looking person in the room, though they may also occasionally be drawn to someone because of their mild spirit. More than likely, they are attracted to that laid-back individual, quietly chatting with friends in the corner. These men are also noticing when you carry name-brand items or quality items.

They are attracted to individuals who are hard to get, usually individuals who haven’t had many relationships with people. There are two reasons for this, depending on the guy. The first reason for this is because they want to feel like that person in their lives will only be there’s. They are possessive deep down and easily jealous. The thought of their crush being only theirs is really enticing for them. Some do have a tendency to see their love interests as objects. Really, they see their love interests as “valuable”. They see them as people who are a prize to be won. And they don’t want to let that go to anyone else.

They want loyalty. A woman who hasn’t had too many partners is proof, for them, that she can be a faithful and devoted partner. They usually end up crushing on people they have spent a lot of time with, which helps them learn of a person’s loyalty. This makes them feel more secure.

They mostly just want to feel special in a woman’s life, as if they are special to someone. They don’t like feeling like they are getting someone else’s leftovers or like they are rebound boyfriends.

The second reason they don’t date a partner that has had too many partners is because it’s a sign their partner isn’t easy to obtain, which means they will be able to take their time worming into her heart. They like to take their time. If an individual is hard to get, this means they aren’t easy with their hearts, either. The idea that their crush wants to take her time is even more attractive.

They love to eat, so someone who can cook is definitely a turn-on. They don’t mind that traditional woman. In fact, they are LOOKING for the traditional partner. They are the men asking, “Where have all the feminine women gone?” This doesn’t mean he likes imbalance. He likes someone who is honest, but respectful. He likes someone who works and takes care of themselves. He might even like a sporty side. But he wants someone who carries those tried-and-true traditional qualities at least a little bit. Yet, there are those Venus in Taurus men that like earthier women, women who don’t put on airs or doll themselves up too much. Some of them prefer someone naturally attractive rather than made-up to look attractive.

He may be attracted to artistic types, especially individuals who can sing. Taurus rules the throat, so he may be mesmerized by someone with a lovely voice.

Physically, again, they prefer voluptuous people. But when I say voluptuous, I’m not saying just a little more weight. They tend to like someone with an hour-glass figure. They like weight in all the “right” places. They may also like muscular, toned individuals as well. Generally, they just like attractive people. They tend to be fascinated by people who wear designer stuff. They mostly like tasteful individuals who don’t wear anything too outrageous, strange, or provocative. They are really attracted to individuals who literally look valuable. Jeweled, rich colors stand out to them. They like fabrics that feel soft to the touch, from silk to lace to fabrics like soft jean leggings that make them want to touch you. Clothes must accentuate the body to grab their attention. Taurus rules the throat, so a nice necklace adds just that pizzazz.

Sexually, they want a partner they can touch. They don’t particularly care if their partners are wild or overtly sexual. These men prefer simple and modest partners that are easily satisfied. However, a skilled but patient partner can make these men very satisfied and loyal mates, as they are directly under the influence of Venus (Venus being Taurus’s ruling planet).

If he asked you out, you are probably all that! Attractive, well-dressed, and down-to-earth. He really couldn’t get his eyes off of you. He sees you as valuable. He won’t want to let you go.

How do I know he likes me? He will buy you things, give you hugs, touch you, and may even try to kiss you, even if it’s just on the cheek. He will show off his money and dress extremely nice around you, smelling good and all. He may get really jealous when he sees you around another guy.

TURN OFF: Drama Queens. They hate fighting. They hate confrontation. They hate bossy, pushy individuals. If you handle anything, handle it with class and coolly. Discuss everything calmly and with a bit of humor.

Venus rules over Taurus, so this is the strongest placement for Venus. These men know what people like and they know how to satisfy. They are looking for someone to match their exquisite taste. These men may seem demanding, and they may not like that if they have other energies in their charts. But this side of them makes them yearn for that traditional person.

When this man finds you beautiful and cool, that’s it. He’s sold for that first date. He’s not looking for anything else until he’s ready to commit.

Venus in Gemini

One word description: Open-minded

These men like individuals who are fun, lively, and crazy! They like to socialize and party. They tend to be attracted to the social butterflies. They love the flirty types. They tend to crush on really cute and flirty girls, girls who are a bit bubbly and maybe even a bit flighty! However, this doesn’t mean they like dumb people. In fact, they want someone who is smart, witty, and funny. Nothing turns them on more than someone who makes them laugh!

They prefer people who are open-minded. They want to be able to do anything with her. He likes someone he can talk to, someone with something significant to say. He likes someone who has their heads screwed on right with interesting thoughts. Of course, his Mercury sign will depend on what interests him. They are looking for someone who is on the same page mentally. They like to have a mental rapport.

They like individuals who are forever young, no matter how old they get. He tends to be attracted to people who are trendy, socially aware, and someone who has tried everything!

This man pays attention to lips. He likes to kiss. This man also pays attention to the hands and arms. But these men honestly don’t care too much about how someone looks. They actually tend to be attracted to people who seem easy-going and easy to talk to. They are attracted to individuals who aren’t afraid to speak what’s on their minds and state their opinions. They are interested in people with ideas.

Physically, this guy, again, is attracted to luscious lips, so make sure those lips are kissable! Lip balm, lip gloss, and/or lipstick do wonders. He tends to focus on arms and shoulders, so off-shoulder tops, tank tops, halter tops, t-shirts, and anything else that show the arms would work. These guys like lively, flirty individuals, so they tend to like vibrant or bright colors. As far as physical appearance, generally just someone who looks young or youthful. Wear a smile. But again, these guys are more interested in the mind than the appearance.

Sexually, these men want engaging partners that are flexible and open-minded. They like sweet talk and kissing during the act. They may prefer partners who have youthful energy. They may be drawn to partners that have impressive skills.

If this man asked you out, you must be young, vivacious, and vibrant in spirit!

How do I know he likes me? Well, he flirts. He’s quite verbal and will try to woo you with his words. He may just ask you out or write a letter or note. He may ask for your number, facebook name, or any way he can talk to you.

TURN OFF: Anyone boring or uninteresting. They don’t find much of an interest in people who don’t get their logic, their jokes, their ideas, or those who don’t want to try new things.

After this man has seen how easy you are to talk to, now he’s ready to get inside your head. How do you process the world? How do you think? Where does your intelligence lie? Mercury is going to come into play next.

This sign is ruled by Mercury. Mercury rules over the mind, how we communicate, how we think, how we process information.

Mercury can only be in one sign before the sun, in the same sign as the sun sign, and be one sign after the sun. Because Venus can only be two places before or after the sun, as well as matching the sun sign, not every combination is possible.

For instance, if Venus is in Gemini, more than likely the Sun sign can only be Sun in Aries, Sun in Taurus, Sun in Gemini, Sun in Cancer, or Sun in Leo (Venus enters Gemini when the Sun is in two signs before Gemini, in Gemini, and in two signs after Gemini). Mercury can only be in one sign before, in the exact sign, or after. If Sun is in Aries, for instance, Mercury can be in Pisces, Aries, or Taurus. Why? Because of the rotation of Mercury in OUTER SPACE, which we have no control over.

Read the Venus sign that best fits your Mercury sign and see if it feels more familiar to you. For instance, if your Mercury is in Cancer, read Venus in Cancer.

Venus in Cancer

One word description: Nurturing

These men tend to like individuals who are thicker, but not necessarily always someone with a fit body, like Taurus. These men like breasts and thighs. Still, there are also those that like individuals who are super skinny and fragile-looking. They really like their crush to look feminine! Not necessarily traditional all the time, but they are attracted to individuals with feminine physical features. Soft, roundish faces, soft skin, soft eyes, these men want someone who looks like a delicate flower, even if that person’s dressed frumpy and/or boyish. This is the complex part. They may like someone who looks physically “feminine”, but actually dresses casually and comfortably!

They like women who look capable of bearing children. In fact, pregnancy is attractive to these men! They tend to be attracted to those sweet, neighborly types.

They like quiet, shy people. They kind of are attracted to individuals that make them feel really comfortable because they are shy, romantic men. These men prefer individuals who understand them and listen to them, so the more comfortable the person appears, the more they assume that individual will be comfortable enough for him to share his intimate secrets. They don’t always care if someone is domestic, despite what is the reputation of Cancer. It all depends on their home environment growing up, which is reflected by the MOON signs. However, if the person they are attracted to does know how to cook, they are sold!

They always crush on their best friends or crush on someone who has cared for them for a long time. These boys tend to crush on their teachers, nurses, doctors, baby-sitters, anyone who took the time out to pamper them and mend their spirits. Even though they have their physical ideals, they generally aren’t drawn to people for physical reasons. They tend to gravitate to people for their personalities. They are more attracted to someone that feels familiar, someone with similar habits and pet peeves, rather than someone that doesn’t feel close to home. When these men find out they have something in common with someone else, they just instantly connect with them. After that, they can’t get them out of their heads. This depends on their MOON SIGNS as well.  They tend to be drawn to people who remind them of home. They are also drawn to artistic types, especially artsy people who reach them emotionally and captivate their spirits. They are drawn to individuals with a blood-line of beautiful people. I guess many of them figure if the family is attractive, any future kids will be too! He’s drawn to many different types of women just because he mostly loves the presence of femininity. He may even have a lot of female friends!

Physically, this guy isn’t very superficial. Still, he likes the chest area. He may like someone who looks nice but still a bit casual and comfortable. Again, he likes soft or cute features like small eyes, round faces, pouty lips, smooth skin, etc. He doesn’t really care about the body and can be attracted to people of various sizes. He loves underwear and pajamas believe it or not. White and silver are colors that may catch his attention, but generally he likes understated looks. Nothing too gaudy or provocative will really catch his attention as much as it would other men. This doesn’t mean he doesn’t like when women show some skin, it just means he prefers not to look at too many patterns on a wardrobe or anything too diva-like. He’s fine with a girl in some fitted jeans and a simple cropped top.

Sexually, these men are looking for a partner that is modest and comfortable, but someone who goes with the flow (he is changeable, may like it gentle at times, may like it rough other times). They want someone they can hug and caress. They will only have sex with a partner they are really attracted to and really in love with. He wants sex to be really intimate. He may like for his sexual lovers to wear lingerie.

If this man asked you out, you are his sweet-heart! He may not just even see you as a passing crush, but he may really want to commit to you! He may see himself spending the rest of his life with you. You are a serious potential for a girlfriend! Unlike most men, he thinks about long-term commitment. He’s too jealous, clingy, and intimate not to expect to keep a girl all to himself.

How do I know he likes me? He’s shy, so don’t look for obvious signs. He may ask you when your birthday is and try to get you something nice. He may try to be nice to your family or he’ll invite you to his house and introduce you to his family as a “friend”. He will spend a lot of time with you. A LOT of time with you. He may also get jealous when you’re around other men. He may go along with whatever you want and whatever you want to do. He’ll even stick up for you all the time. Just these little indirect things will let you know he likes you. He will share some very personal, intimate secrets with you, too.

TURN OFF: Telling him to grow up, treating him inferior as a man, indifferent individuals who don’t know how to nurture or show care for another person

This man is usually ready to commit soon after he’s found his crush. But there are a couple of things he’ll be considering. After he’s seen how caring and kind you are, he’ll start wondering whether you can match HIS emotional needs. Can you deal with his habits and his insecurities? This is definitely where Moon comes in. Generally, all men need the Moon in order to truly commit, but Venus in Cancer men can’t even feel physically attracted to someone they wouldn’t commit to.

The Moon rules over Cancer. It is the planet of emotions, of home, of habits, and of rhythms. It rules over our emotional needs, our personal insecurities. Read the Venus 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 Venus in Leo.

Venus in Leo

One-word description: Dynamic

These men do love beautiful women! They love the woman that all eyes are on! If they get with a person, they have to look as good as these men do! These men want a woman that is unforgettable. These are the men that like confident individuals, individuals who have their lives and appearances together. They are not intimidated by a working woman. They want to be proud of the individual they have on their arm! They are attracted to vibrant, sexy individuals, those who know how to turn up the heat. They are attracted to individuals who are fun for them to be around. That means people are more attractive to them when they find the same amusements and jokes as great as these men do.

Though they like confident individuals, they don’t want anyone to over-power them. They tend to also be attracted to individuals that are sweet, generous, and people who give them some attention. Anyone who makes them feel special in any way will be their crush. They want their girlfriend to be their “#1” fan, so they are looking for someone supportive. They basically want an individual who has the full package: Good looks, confidence, and yet a sweet, caring personality, positivity oozing from them, just a ray of sunshine that others always want around them. They are drawn to that person in the corner that people just flock around like bees to honey. These men can be demanding souls, and it may seem they expect perfection. The main thing is they wouldn’t want anything from a crush that they wouldn’t expect of themselves! These men want someone who carries themselves with a bit of pride. The Sun plays a role in this. He’s attracted to individuals who have the same core values that he carries. There are certain things that are very important to him as an individual, and he’s more attracted to someone who finds the same things important. He wants someone who carries a sense of dignity about themselves the way he himself would. He’s attracted to someone who is just like him. These men aren’t intimidated by women who are leaders in the world, as long as they don’t use this dominating spirit to lord over them. They are attracted to honest, sincere individuals, but they are hoping the “sincerity” is positive and not critical. They want someone who sincerely loves everything about them.

Physically, again, this man is looking for the best of the best. He wants someone who looks great! He’s attracted to the best-looking person in the room, so bring out your best, sexiest outfit. Yes, cover up all blemishes and make whatever you’ve got work. Highlights and a nice tan really catch his eyes as well. Bold, bright colors attract his attention more than subtle colors. However, if you wear a subtle color, make sure you add some bold accessories. Elegance, grace, and tastefulness is what he’s looking for. He tends to notice the back, so halter tops, tank tops, or interesting jackets with details on the back really stand out to him.

Sexually, these men want someone that is both attractive, open, and yet, submissive. They are drawn to partners that are playful and adventurous. They may be drawn to individuals who are generous with offering pleasure.

If these men were attracted to you, look out! What they see in you may seem hard to live up to, but they definitely see you as someone special and worthy of attention from them.

How do I know he likes me? He will show off in front of you. He will flirt with you in front of everyone. He will ask you out dramatically. He will buy you many expensive things, get you anything you need, offer to take you places you’ve always wanted to go. He will definitely make his impression unforgettable. He’ll get jealous if you’re around other guys. He will spend a lot of extra time with you making sure other men don’t get too close. He will try to find out everything you like just so he can make sure he impresses you.

TURN OFF: Someone who tries to put them down, individuals who are a little too frank (though they also hate liars). They don’t like when people let themselves go appearance-wise and show they just don’t care anymore. They also dislike negative people.

After they notice how much attention you get from being so amazing, these men want to know who you are. These are the men that truly care about who you are as a person, right at the core, your personality, what you stand for, who you identify yourself as. They want to know what is most important in your life. The Sun comes into play when they are crushing on someone. The Sun rules over Leo. The Sun is the ego, the identity, our basic self.

Venus can only be in a sign that’s two signs before the Sun sign, in the same sign as the sun, and two signs after the sun. So the Sun can only be in five signs.

Read the Venus 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 Venus in Virgo.

Venus in Virgo

One-word description: Sincere

These men aren’t really romantic types of individuals. Venus is falling in Virgo, and these men feel the affects of this more than most women with this placement do (considering Venus is a feminine planet). Most of these men prefer to be independent. But if they were to be attracted to someone, that person must be down-to-earth, real, sensible, and intelligent. They like people who think about things, people with something significant to say, with something they agree with. They are drawn to people who are honest and tell them like it is. Most importantly, they are attracted to people who are sincere.

They sort of find a bit of teasing attractive. This makes them loosen up a bit because they tend to be stiff in social situations. They don’t mind when someone gently criticizes them. They are happy to be noticed and tended to by someone else.

They are VERY particular. They barely trust love and infatuation. Secretly, though, they just feel really insecure about themselves. They may be crushing on someone and no one would ever know. It may be the littlest thing about the person that makes them crush. It could be the perfect hair, eyes, body, anything. These things may not literally be perfect in accordance with society’s standards, but it may be exactly what they are looking for. When they spend enough time with a person, they begin to notice these perfect imperfections. Still, they may not admit it because they don’t feel good enough to win this person’s heart.

On the other hand, if this guy isn’t too scared to confess his feelings, it may not come out in a romantic way. His words may sound a little too mechanical or honest.

These men are attracted to people for innocent reasons. If someone touches their hand, compliments them, helps them out, or just spends time with them, they can develop a crush. They won’t admit this, but they’re shy with too much attention. So, when they get attention, they can’t forget the person who gave it to them. They like to be appreciated because they often feel they aren’t. Anyone who notices them and takes the time to get to know them is bound to be worth it for these men!

These men like clean and healthy individuals. They do like the idea of their love interest bathing, and being an earth sign, they like the sweet smell of perfume, cologne, lotion, or scented shampoo, which shows them the individual cares about their hygiene. They tend to be attracted to people who eat fresh foods, are vegetarians, or vegans. Some of them just don’t like seeing someone eating food they think is gross. If they find someone who has similar eating patterns to them, they will be more attracted to that person. For instance, if a Venus in Virgo male hates peanuts, he will find it attractive when someone else hates it, too.

He also tends to draw himself to loners. They don’t like socializing too much. If an individual is a loner, he will find it easier to talk to them. He’s generally drawn to people on a physical level and doesn’t care much for intimate personal feelings.

These men do like sexy people. They like people who are straight-forward with their intentions. They may not necessarily like a provocative person, but they certainly like people who are honest about what they want. Still, they’re shy. They aren’t the types to talk “romance” or gooey nonsense. They don’t even see it as real. They are truly attracted to individuals who cut the romance crap and own up to the “realities” of a relationship. They don’t honestly believe any men are interested in that part, which is a reflection that they aren’t comfortable with that. They would appreciate a woman who understands this. An understanding woman would actually be very attractive to these men! Their lack of “romance” has to do with their insecurities. They feel like “idealistic” romances in fairy tales give people unrealistic expectations; expectations they feel are too hard for their perfectionist minds to meet. They are waiting for love to fail them like it has so many times. A lover who makes them feel secure in this regard is a gem. For this reason, they like humble, calm, and cool individuals. That is the most attractive quality of all. Somewhat, they like detached or indifferent individuals.

Physically, he has his particularities. Generally he likes someone who has smooth skin, a fit body, and an understated taste in clothing. He notices every detail about a person. Overall though, individuals are more attractive to him when he likes their personalities. He will suddenly begin to notice just how attractive a person is after he’s fallen in love with their personality. He is often attracted to petite individuals and may like distinct eyes, hair, and defined features.

These men are drawn to partners that are sexually skilled. They enjoy a partner that puts in the effort to serve and please. They are drawn to individuals who smell good, dress nice, have neat hair, and who are clean. They may want someone who appeals to them visually. Though they want someone skilled, their partner must be a little submissive and modest. They don’t like eccentric or wild partners.

If these men are attracted to you, you’ve done it! You’ve broken their strong distrust in love! You’ve managed to appeal to these men someway, somehow. The challenge is just trying to keep their interest without turning them off in some odd way.

How do I know he likes me? He’ll be there when you need his help with anything. He might go the traditional route and buy gifts or ask you out for lunch. Beyond that, you may not know unless you ask. Some Venus in Virgos may be far too shy to tell you his feelings.

TURN OFF: There are a lot of things. Really, love turns them off. They are intimidated by it. Don’t come in with the demands for a perfect romance, and they will feel comfortable. They are already hard on themselves as it is. Let them show you love in their own small ways. People who don’t appreciate this turns them off. They also dislike ditsy, dumb types. They dislike demanding, show-offs. They have a list of peeves. They dislike watching someone eat a food they dislike. For example, if they hate pudding, they don’t really like watching someone eat it. They dislike strange smells coming from a person. There are a lot of examples. It’s just best to communicate with these men to find out what they like and what they don’t.

After you make these men more secure, and after you’ve shown yourself to be cool and chilled in demeanor, they’re going to want to know where your head is. What are your thoughts? What do you notice around you? Mercury signs come into place with these men.

Read the Venus 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 Venus in Libra.

Mercury can only be one sign before the sun sign, in the same sign as the sun, and the sign after. Venus can only be two signs before the sun, in the same sign as the sun, or two signs after the sun. This is due to the rotation of the planets in OUTER SPACE.

Venus in Libra

One-word description: Nice

These men literally like the sweet individuals. They like people who are friendly, easy-going, modest, and sociable. They like people who know how to have some good, clean fun. For them, they like to do socially popular things. They want a woman who carries a bit of class and coolness when she’s in public. They like to feel wanted and needed. They generally tend to be drawn to romantic types looking for a boyfriend. They usually notice the quiet, elegant, well-dressed, wall-flower types. They appreciate thoughtful women, women who buy them gifts.

These men are ruled by Venus, so they are always crushing on physically attractive people, and they take a particular interest in the butt. Sexy for them is literally just beauty, inside and out. Honestly, they don’t really care for the overt “sexy” types. They are drawn to individuals who are worth giving up everything for. They want someone that ANY man could want. They tend to crush on the most popular person in the room. Not only does this man like someone who’s sweet, but he also wants someone with a bit of innocence. The idea of the person he’s crushing on sleeping with a bunch of men isn’t their idea of the “ideal lover”.

They generally are attracted to people who share the same interests or they like people who share their interests with them. They like individuals who smile and laugh easily.

They tend to be drawn to flirty types. They can tell when someone is flirting with them. They tend to be attracted to individuals who are unique in their own way, someone cultured and open-minded. They generally like individuals who are fair and reasonable. When they see someone handling a tense situation calmly, coolly, and respectfully, it really catches their interest.

Physically, he tends to like attractive, pretty people. He generally notices someone dressed their best before he notices someone dressed casual, but as long as the face is nice, he will notice. He doesn’t really care for the provocative types or, to the far extreme, frumpy types. Accentuate the butt as he tends to target that body part first and foremost. He’s always attracted to an amazing smile.

Sexually, they prefer partners that are sweet-natured and submissive. They want their sexual partners to look attractive even in the bedroom. They don’t like partners that are too wild and coarse. They like a little balance.

They prefer pleasing sexual partners, to the eye and touch. They like partners who are accommodating and willing to please as well, but they prefer her to be soft and subtle in her actions.

If you are asked out by them, just know that you have attracted one of the best lovers out there! He will treat you well! You really know how to attract the good guys to you, and this is probably because you’re a good person yourself.

How do I know he likes me? He will flirt, act super chivalrous, and will be romantic. He will send you anonymous romantic gifts like flowers and chocolates. He may even give you a cute pet name.

TURN OFF: Mean-spirited individuals. They dislike bullies who always have something mean to say. They tend to be turned off by closed-minded comments. They dislike rudeness of all kinds.

They are not often interested in individuals who have a nonchalant attitude, someone who acts like they don’t care about anything or anyone.

They also dislike drama queens, individuals who are confrontational, and not cool.Generally, they dislike anyone who isn’t nice, calm, and sweet.

Above all, they hate individuals who exclude them from things. These men really do hate inequalities. It’s a turn-off when someone does something and doesn’t invite them or include them, even if what the person is doing doesn’t seem like their cup of tea.

Though it doesn’t turn them off when you have a casual appearance, they do like those days when their crush gets all dressed up.

Venus is at home in Libra, so generally there are no more steps. When they get a load of that sweet personality, they are sold for a first date. They won’t be looking for anything else until they are sure they are ready to commit.

Venus in Scorpio

One-word description: Thrilling

These men like individuals who are different, unique, bold, and EXTREMELY sexy. I don’t care how nerdy this guy is, he wants a “bad” individual and he wants to have fun. He wants someone sharp, someone who’s independent. They are drawn to the loners. Yes, he likes them mean, though not always in a shallow way. Why? Because he sees it as a challenge. When he can conquer and over-power this individual, he will feel like a winner. This may seem like he’s a power-hungry person. Not necessarily. He just likes someone who takes him beyond the superficiality and the boredom of the mundane world.

He’s drawn to someone with an aura of mystery and intrigue, someone who is a little dangerous, cutting-edge, bold, and spunky. He ignores the cowards. He’s drawn to someone who’s daring and fearless! Still, he doesn’t necessarily like party animals all the time. He’s not completely into that glitz and glam superficial life. He’s looking for someone who’s ready to take life to the next level, or rather who’s ready to dig deeper. He’s drawn to people who are intelligent, who think deeper than most.

He’s drawn to those individuals that are strong-willed and powerful. Yes, he likes to be in control, but when someone controls him, he likes it a little, too. He really can’t forget the one that’s causing so much drama in his life. This guy often forms love-hate relationships with his crush. He wants to own this person and conquer them, but he also feels under their spell and control when he does this. And he’s drawn to those who aren’t easy to conquer, which could drive him to frustration. I know, this all sounds a little crazy, right? But that’s what he likes. He wants to get lost in his own world with someone, and yes, do the craziest things. The fighting both infuriates him and turns him on. The emotional drama both makes him want to quit and makes him want to stay.

This man tends to be drawn to magnetic and charismatic individuals. They like people who know how to influence a crowd, individuals who are a part of something greater in life.

Venus is in detriment if you haven’t noticed. These individuals aren’t the most comfortable in their love relationships. They cause quite a bit of drama in their lives and in the lives of others. Their relationships always seem rocky. But again, this is what he likes, even if he doesn’t realize it. He wants love to mean something. He wants a reason to have someone. The more someone rejects him, the angrier it makes him, yet he wants them more!

They do want someone who is confident, just not someone who shows off. They often like individuals they know nothing about because it keeps things interesting. If they feel they have sized you up, it would knock them off guard when they find there is so much more to you than what meets the eye. They are drawn to layered individuals. Venus is in detriment in this sign because of the amount of drama they need in love to keep it going.

Yet, despite the fact that he’s drawn to individuals that reject him, when someone wants him so badly they are willing to give up everything for him, he will not be able to resist. He’s not usually into the desperate types for fear they may expect something of him or have some other ulterior motive. Still, if he feels you are sincere about wanting him deeply, this may be the most attractive quality of all!

Physically, sexy does the trick. He tends to like people in clothes that accentuate the body, maybe a little see-through, but not gaudy or too revealing. Leave something for the imagination. He likes a cutting-edge look particularly. Tease him just a little. He may also be drawn to someone who looks exciting and different, so own your own unique personal style. He’s drawn to dark, sleek colors, but may also like brighter colors if the clothes are sexy. He prefers solid colors to patterns. Regardless of what you wear, however, wear a sexy attitude. Be fearless. That’s more attractive than anything.

Sexually, these men want a passionate affair. They may be drawn to partners that are difficult to turn on or they may be drawn to individuals with an animal magnetism and raw sexuality. They want everything you’ve got or nothing at all.

If this guy asks you out, you must have a very powerful presence. You are unforgettable, mesmerizing, and deep. There is nothing shallow about you. You are someone that makes him find a reason for living.

How do I know he likes me? You won’t know from him telling you. He keeps his secret feelings to himself. He will never give anyone the satisfaction of knowing he’s interested until he’s sure you feel the same way about him. But he may stare A LOT. He may flirt a LITTLE if you approach him. He may try to get inside your head and understand you. He may stalk you, he may do a lot of research about you. Trust me, his aura will ooze his feelings even if he never says it. You will get the message if you stop to notice. You must solve the mystery of this man. Only then will you find out what he really feels. You must be willing to take the time to. Anyone who does will win his heart anyway.

TURN OFF: Shallow individuals. Boring individuals. Individuals who care too much about their appearances. Vanity is such a turn off…unless you prove you have way more to yourself than that. Socially strict, socially concerned, and gossips also irritate them. They want someone with substance over class. They aren’t likely to notice you if you aren’t interesting. They really want someone exciting and sexy. They really just aren’t drawn to “good people”. They don’t like the goody-two-shoes. They want to be thrilled.

After he’s done with his intense adventures with you, he’s going to want to know what you’re passionate about, what your desires are, and your sexual power. Mars comes into play right then and there. He may also want to know those deeper sides to you, the moments that have changed your life. Your generation will have an affect on his interest in you. Pluto is a generational planet that can last for 10 years or more in a sign.

Mars is the planet of energy, passion, drive, and sex. Pluto is simply the planet of power.

Venus in Sagittarius

One-word description: Free-spirited

These men love their freedom, so nothing turns them on more than someone who’s as free-spirited as they are! The don’t like to be controlled and they don’t like too many commitments. It’s hard enough for them to live up to one. Individuals who are open to an “open” relationship really make them crush hard. They tend to be drawn to individuals who know how to be a friend, partner in crime, someone they can have many different adventures with.

They like individuals who are feisty and independent. They enjoy people who are brave and bold. Like many fire signs, they like the person who gets the most attention. They like those party animals. The difference is that they want to know if the individual is also smart and thinks about the world. They want to know that they can learn something from this person. They tend to be drawn to people who are exotic or cultured. Individuals with a college education may be appealing as well. In general, they just want someone who has a zest for life and has experienced the world or desires to.

Most importantly, they’ll be drawn to people who share their beliefs. These beliefs are usually based on their own moral conscious. JUPITER will decide this. They tend to have strong moral beliefs. Whether they believe it is right to date a party animal or whether they believe it’s wrong to be so loose, it will influence who they are drawn to. On a complex level, sometimes Venus in Sag men will swallow their beliefs to experience and learn new things, if they find someone who is really interesting. Still, their beliefs influence their attraction to someone. If someone fits everything they believe in, they will want them. Still, they can’t help but crush on that fun, lively individual who is looking for more meaning in life. They can’t help but be attracted to a positive, happy-go-lucky individual. They like those individuals who are strong and never give up on what they believe in, and that’s sometimes more inspiring and attractive than holding on to their own beliefs!

These men tend to think a lot about themselves and it’s hard for them to admit when they are crushing on someone. But when they do, they do. They tend to boast around the people they like. Honesty is very important for them. Wisdom is very alluring.

Physically, he may like thighs, hips, legs, as well as butt. He likes hips and thighs that are thick, so a little bottom weight isn’t bad for him. He doesn’t really care what you wear, however he tends to be drawn to casual individuals. He may like individuals in shorts or skirts or jeans that fit the legs. His beliefs, whether religious or ethical, tend to influence his attraction to someone physically as well. Still, he may also like exotic features, features that seem rather foreign and exciting.

Sexually, these men are drawn to partners that are fun, wild, adventurous, and open. They prefer undemanding and uninhibited partners. They want a friendship and a loose sexual relationship. They can’t deal with jealousy or possessiveness.

If these individuals have asked you out, you must seem larger than life and very special! It is actually hard to catch their attention.

How do I know he likes me? He’s pretty straight-forward. He will tell you. He will also boast about himself to make himself seem more important and interesting than he is.

TURN OFF: Jealousy, insecurities with relationships and love, emotional drama, baggage (like extra kids he doesn’t know about, family issues, etc), and someone who goes against everything he believes in. He also tends to ignore the shy and reserved types. They don’t seem like a whole lot of fun to him.

Again, after he’s done exploring and having adventures with you, he’s going to want to talk about the meaning of life, what keeps his spirits going, and what he believes in. For him, this could be the difference between whether his interests last in a person. Jupiter will come into play.

Jupiter is the planet of luck, expansion and growth, and beliefs.

Read the Venus 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 Venus in Capricorn.

Venus in Capricorn

One-word description: Cool

Venus in Capricorn men are drawn to individuals who are strong, smart, and cool. They generally like confident individuals. They tend to like the loners. Despite any other energies in their charts that may move them to want someone who is humble and submissive, they just can’t help but be drawn to the person who stands up to them, to the individual who bosses them around. They crush on those individuals who are in control, those individuals who are firm about what they want. Though they prefer individuals who handle things with a cool head, they really don’t gravitate to people that agree with everything they do.

They tend to be attracted to darker haired individuals. They also like it when that individual wears darker colors. They tend to crush hard on people who are older than they are. They crush on people who act mature and cool. They are drawn to individuals who are all about business. They really can’t help but like individuals who are decisive and serious. Commitment is very important to them. Someone who seems to want them and is straight-forward about it earns this man’s respect.

He tends to be drawn to ambitious individuals who are successful and achievement-oriented. He crushes on the top athlete, the most popular cheer-leader, the lead singer in a band, anyone who shows they want to be a professional at their craft. That is sexy to him. They tend to like people in business suits. Dress like that, and he will fall immediately. They like people who have a sense of power and command about them. They respect boundaries and someone who is wise with finances. They do like individuals who carry a bit of class. They prefer modesty to wildness; On the other hand, they prefer someone who is down-to-earth and cool.

Physically, he’s attracted to individuals who look elegant, sophisticated, and authoritative. He tends to be drawn to individuals in a suit or really sleek and elegant looks. He tends to like a girl in jackets. Dark, solid colors are more appealing to him than bright colors. Carry yourself with confidence and he will find that even more attractive.

Sexually, they want a partner who is cool and straight-forward. A measure of caution or maturity is a real turn-on. They may prefer really experienced partners or partners that are untouched and possibly inexperienced. They may like partners that keep a measure of control even during the sex act. They tend to be sensual, so they like to be able to caress their partners. Soft skin would be a turn-on.

If this man is attracted to you, you are one cool and successful person in his eyes. He feels that if he wins your heart, he will have one of the most valuable women in the world. It may be a challenge, but that’s what he loves. He pays attention to legs and teeth. He likes a bright smile and long, sleek legs. Well-developed individuals are also appealing.

How do I know he likes me? He may be a little nervous. Love is an out-of-character trait for him. When he’s around you, he may suddenly lose his usual cool. He may try to talk to you and get to know you more, but he will feel like he’s doing the wrong thing all the time. He’s generally insecure with his feelings. This guy kisses suddenly, and you may or he may not have even been prepared for it. It’s usually a moment they have decided on, but haven’t fully prepared for the feelings afterward. They tend to try to ask you out or do what anyone would expect him to do when he likes someone: buy her gifts and give her compliments.

TURN OFF: Someone who acts like a spoiled brat, someone who is whiny, clingy, and complains a lot. Someone who is flighty and not serious about anything. Someone without opinions, that just agrees with everything he says. Jealousy and insecurities are not bad as long as they are not handled immaturely. They hate volatile individuals. Standing up for yourself is one thing, but fighting someone on the first date? A turn-off.

Of course, after he’s noticed that you have your life together, he wants to know your struggles and successes. He wants to see how wise you are. He wants to know what’s most important to you or what’s very serious to you. There are certain things he takes seriously and he wants to know if you won’t jeopardize his security. Saturn gives us clues as to what this means for him.

Saturn is the planet of boundaries and limitations.

Venus in Aquarius

One-word description: Unique

These men always fall for the reserved individuals with the quirky side. They generally fall for people who aren’t gaudy or flamboyant, but still are different from others around them in some other way. They like the nerdy, geeky types, too.

They easily crush on their friends and are known to have crushes on childhood friends. They tend to prefer a friendship to love, but they fall for friends so fast!

They are drawn to people who are intelligent and lively. They do like individuals who are open-minded, independent, and freedom-loving. They tend like people who have a lot more to them than the superficial good looks. In fact, they like individuals who have their own style, instead of following the trends.

They don’t like to get too close to people for fear of being judged or controlled, so they like someone who is cool and keeps a little distance. They tend to like those individuals who do “their own thing”. They even like individuals who are just completely, insanely wild! They crush on people who are interesting and intriguing. For instance, when everyone is silently and calmly standing in line, and this one person is just popping gum hard and accidentally cutting everybody, that could be attractive to them. For Venus in Aquarius men, that’s cute. Those dorky qualities are tremendously appealing to him.

These men are sexual rebels, so they like people who think outside of the box with their sex appeal. They may be drawn to someone pansexual, asexual, or bi-sexual. Perhaps gender-bending fashion could go a long way with them, too. They also tend to like older people, but only because it’s different. They really like people who are different.

They tend to be drawn to individuals who contribute a lot to the world and do more meaningful things, like organize charities or join a reality show. Just something that seems greater than the usual day-to-day grind. They like people who step outside of the box.  They gravitate to people who are friendly and popular in their own way.

They tend to like individuals who can add something interesting to a conversation, but they like individuals who are intelligent. They really do like when someone holds an unexpected opinion. They like people who think differently more than anything. This man even wants this girl to be cool if he kisses someone else or takes someone else out. To many, this may seem like a super act of disloyalty. Sometimes, Venus in Aquarius men are testing to see how cool you will be. If someone he’s been crushing on doesn’t over-react, and instead reacts unexpectedly, this man will change all of his ways, drop his side lovers, and be stuck to you like glue! This is how badly he really is attracted to someone who is unexpected.

Physically, he may just be drawn to someone with a unique sense of style. He’s not as physical as the other men, but he does tend to be drawn to thin individuals. They like pretty faces as much as the next person, but that person must look distinct in some way. They tend to be drawn to fashion-forward individuals as well. They may like the glamorous types, individuals who are dressed elegantly and attractive, but they tend to like the cute types, no matter what. He pays attention to the ankles and legs. He likes legs, so accentuate them with a nice skirt, shorts, or fitted pants.

Sexually, they may want a partner who is open-minded and experimental, but mostly a good conversationalist. They may want someone who has a strong knowledge about sex or a strong curiosity. They prefer to have no strings attached, including no emotional demands afterwards.

If this man asks you out, you are loved for who you are! Your quirks are what make you charming. Not everyone is so lucky all the time. But you know how to make even your worst days look fabulous!

How do I know he likes me? This guy generally stays cool most of the time. If he lets on his feelings, it will be at some random and spontaneous moment. Possibly unexpected. Your best bet is asking him casually, while talking about a fun subject. They also tend to be a little jealous when they see someone they like with someone else. The usual cool Venus in Aquarius man will suddenly seem grouchy! Usually, though, this guy is a friend first. So technically, ladies, if you want to know who he likes, ask him who his closest friend is at this moment.

TURN OFF: People who fit the mold, who do what is normally expected of them. Individuals who try too hard to fit in and don’t speak up when someone is doing something unfair. They really dislike followers. They also dislike jealous types, individuals who are clingy and dependent, as well as those with nothing intelligent to say. Though they like people who rebel sexually, they don’t tend to draw towards the provocative types.

After Venus in Aquarius men see how interesting and intelligent a person is, they want to know what’s really important to this individual. They may also want to see what limits these individuals aren’t willing to cross. This could make them crush even harder! This will be decided by Saturn. They also prefer individuals from their generation or individuals who are progressive. They are looking for someone who has an open mind and new ideas, someone who’s looking to break away from traditional ways of doing things. Uranus, a generational planet, will decide how this plays out.

Saturn is the planet of boundaries and limitations. Uranus is the planet of freedom.

Read the Venus 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 Venus in Pisces.

Venus in Pisces

These men do like sexy people, but more on the mystic, enchanting side. Like a sea creature coming out of the water, they care about body language. The individual doesn’t have to say much, they just have to enchant them. Speaking of sea creature, they love bathing suits! They are generally drawn to physically beautiful people. They are not very discriminating about who they like. Physically, however, they are easily enchanted by an attractive, nice, and charming appearance.

Many of these men just love to be in love, and so don’t really care as long as the person likes them. Some, however, are wiser, especially if their hearts have been broken, which happens many times with these guys. After that point, many of these men are drawn to mysterious, quiet souls. They tend to be drawn to people who are accepting, kind, loving, and compassionate. They fall in love with people who actually notice them, especially since most are so quiet. They may like those individuals who need them, those people who are loners.

They tend to fall in love with a dream, which is decided by Neptune. These men are easily drawn to what’s on the TV, in the movies, and in the magazines. In this way, they have many fantasies about the woman they want. They tend to want a dream figure, someone that any man would want. This depends on the generation, but no matter what, they want the ideal. If they see these “dreams” in someone, they tend to fall head over heels! Many times, they are looking for a soul mate, someone who is exactly like them and feels the same spark that they do. These men tend to fall for people who treat them really nice and act really sweet towards them. They tend to crush hard on the most attractive, the kindest, most heroic person in the room. They can’t help it. They are always crushing on a celebrity of some kind, whether it’s a Kpop idol or a famous actor. They crush easily. If someone is presented to them as amazing and wonderful, with flaws made to look like an “asset”, they tend to be drawn to that illusion.

They tend to be captivated by someone that helps them escape the harsh world. They like those individuals who just go-with-the-flow and just enjoy life. In this way, they also tend to crush on people who want to change the world and make it a better place. They tend to crush on individuals who see the good in people rather than the bad.

Overall, they tend to crush on a dream. Real people can be hard for them to handle. Real love, with real world demands, is very hard for them to stomach. It makes them nervous. They would rather dream. If it’s not obvious already, Venus is exalted in Pisces. These men are molded and easily enchanted by beauty and charm. They see it all around them. They are gentle and charming as men! Their only problem is they have a hard time committing. They never know when to say “No” and they have a hard time dealing with the routine of a real relationship.

Physically, he generally likes cute, enchantingly attractive individuals. He’s drawn to individuals who look like their face came out of a magazine or movie. Bathing suits are his thing. He loves individuals with wavy or wild hair. He may like beautiful, petite people in physical appearance, but he may be drawn to people in understated clothing rather than loud clothing. He notices the feet, and tends to like attractive feet. Wear some amazing shoes to catch his eye or make sure your feet are soft and well-manicured. He also likes stockings or silk socks of some sort.

Sexually, these men are drawn to all kinds of partners. He may be drawn to the soft, sweet, and submissive types, as well as the adventurous types. Still, he won’t like a partner that is too aggressive, pushy, or demanding. He mostly wants a partner that fits his ideal or his dream-and that could vary.

If this guy asked you out, wow, I’m surprised. He usually never asks anybody out, even those individuals he likes! If he seems to be showing an interest, there is something about you that seems glamorous, enchanting, sweet, and amazingly charming! He sees you as his savior, as someone who just understands and accepts him, no matter his flaws and differences. I wouldn’t be surprised if a whole lot of men were falling at your feet!

How do I know he likes me? He’s shy, so he won’t show it openly. He will probably try to get you alone. He will send secret, sweet messages in a way that no one else can plainly see. He may tease you and even slip in little comments that let you know. He will dream about you all the time, so when he’s around you, he may stare a lot. He may also drop indirect hints and be a little clumsy.

TURN OFF: He will generally be attracted to all kinds of women, but mostly flamboyance annoys him. He may not say anything, but too much attention makes him nervous. He’s also an easy-going guy, so putting on airs and dressing up for stuffy occasions would make him want to run for the hills. They really aren’t attracted to individuals who care too much about their appearance or social decorum. He also doesn’t like to be bossed around. He tends to be turned off by aggression of all sorts and he hates confrontation.

After this guy has finally drawn himself to your caring and sweet personality, he will be looking to see only the good. He’ll be looking for the good in you. Jupiter would bring him the good fortune. He may also be seeking to be enchanted. Neptune, a generational planet, can help with that.

Jupiter is the planet of luck, expansion and growth, and beliefs. Neptune is the planet of illusions, inspiration, hope, and escape.

Drama Fever: Introduction + Hana Kimi/To the Beautiful You #dramafever

8 Apr


*You can skip the introduction if you don’t want to read all of this.*

Many of you might think that I am a bit of a Weeaboo, a Koreaboo, and a bit of a Sinophile. I understand that these people are not looked upon very kindly by the public. These people are considered those guilty of “cultural appropriation”. Basically, people look at them as individuals who “think” they are Asian, but are not. :/ To some people, my obsession over Korean entertainment, my personal critical reviews of other cultural art and perspectives, may seem offensive.

Sure, I love J-pop, K-pop, and some C-pop. I even watch dramas from many Asian countries. I do own two Chinese-style dresses and a Chinese-style modern top. I enjoy cosplay of my favorite characters from my favorite video game Kingdom Hearts. I hope to learn at least one Asian language in my life-time or visit an Asian country. I am fascinated by Japanese and Chinese history. I’m new to Korean history and more familiar with their modern pop culture.

Hallyu Wave

But this actually goes for any culture. I enjoy music and shows from France, New Zealand, Tanzania, Peru, Turkey, and many other countries. I am fascinated with Turkey and it’s Topkapi Palace. You can literally say…I LOVE THE WORLD. ❤

If you want my honest opinion, I am not racist. I am an African American who doesn’t think my culture is superior to another person’s. And I don’t get offended when people want to adapt a part of my culture. I actually feel flattered. I see culture as something universal, not something “owned” or “exclusive”, like I’m in some snobbish exclusive club. Cultures have and always will change. Women in many countries have adapted American styles of dress, like wearing jeans and skirts, using westernized mobile phone devices, and other westernized products. You can say these people are trying to be American, but some of these items make life more convenient for others. It does not offend me to see a Korean girl wearing a pair of jeans…It does not offend me to see a girl wearing hip-hop clothing…

But of course, other people will not see it my way.

I treat all entertainment as if they are all the same. I treat it all as if it came from the same country. I am a firm believer in cross-cultural fertilization.  I believe people are the same everywhere; no matter what culture, each person is their OWN individual. There are things that I like and dislike about all cultures, including my own, but I do not think one culture is superior to another. We all have faults…

So why am I saying all of this? Well, because I’m about to go on a looooonggg spill about some Asian dramas I’ve been watching. I don’t want to offend anyone if my remarks seem harsh, judgmental, or a bit blunt. I really have nothing negative to say, but I may say some things that these cultures may find inappropriate.

I love Asian entertainment, but I don’t know everything about Asia. I was born and raised a black American. I do not know the ins and outs of each culture. All I know are people, and people are various. I also know myself, and for the sake of this blog, that’s all I can be.

I used to be one of those uber-obsessed people. At one time, I even wanted to live in Asia. I used to look at Asia as a Utopia, a way for me to escape my weirdness in school, my feelings of being an outcast, and of not really fitting into my complete African American community very well. I was always open-minded, but constantly tormented for being different. Asia seemed like a place I could escape all of my troubles. It seemed like a place that would accept me. First off, it was on the other side of the Earth from where I lived. Second, there was a certain innocence and purity within the cultures that made me happy.

But sooner or later, as I became an adult, I actually met people who lived in my favorite Asian countries and learned that, again, people are people, where ever you go. There are mean people everywhere; there is no escaping that. And I learned that there are social rules and laws in Asian cultures that would not be ideal for me. But I met some really nice friends from other countries, too. Particularly in Korea, I met a friend that told me her brother was going to be drafted soon. My friendship with her taught me the most about Korea. I no longer see Asian countries as Utopias, but real places that REAL people live in.

Still, it would be fun to take a trip and visit some of my friends, eat foreign foods, and get lost in a new city within a new country… (to add, really learn a new language fluently).

I’m a little nervous about actually visiting Asian countries though. For starters, I like to feel like I can be myself. My friend (and other bloggers) have stressed the importance of manners in Asian countries. I have a bad feeling I will screw up and make the people around me hate me…Unless, someone is forgiving. Of course, going to a new country, you can’t completely be yourself. You have to consider the social etiquette of the land. This is very frustrating for me…and nerve-wrecking. I am not good at remembering things. I know I will forget something..

I am also afraid to share my interests in Asian entertainment and fashion. I don’t want the people there to think I’m making fun of them. I want to have something in common and I like what I like. Maybe that’s American of me? :/ I don’t want them to think I’m stereo-typing…


I will be watching many dramas from around the world for the next two months. Mostly, I’ll be watching Asian dramas and discussing them with my readers.

The Hana Kimi Adaptations

Last week, I became really sick with a fever. I could hardly get out of bed for two days. So, I was stuck at home. Being bored at home, I caught another kind of fever. This time it was a good fever. I got “drama fever”. That’s right. I became addicted to dramas.

I tapped into my Netflix and got whatever movies I could get. I also became addicted to Japanese, Chinese, and Korean dramas.

The latest dramas that caught my interest were the many adaptations of Hana Kimi. Hana Kimi (or Hanazakari no Kimitachi e) is a popular Japanese manga series. It was adapted into drama first by Taiwan, then by Japan twice, and then Korea.

hana kimi

Hana Kimi focuses on the story of a young American female (Ashiya Mizuki) who admires a high-jumping athlete (Sano Izumi) that she happens to spot on TV. Somehow, his jumping inspires her to want to meet him in person. She’s determined to see him high-jump. So, she signs herself up to the all-boys’ school her idol attends and pretends to be a boy. She somehow becomes her idol’s roommate, which greatly affects their relationship throughout the story. He’s not the easiest to live with…But eventually, she melts his cold exterior.

She’s not good at acting like a boy, and is considered a ditz with a cheerful personality (not uncommon in anime and manga series). This is why it was so easy for the school physician to notice right off that she was a girl. The physician becomes a good friend of the lead character, and shows a supportive role in helping her keep her secret. There are many others who discover her secret throughout. She’s not good at hiding her feelings, especially when she likes someone. She’s impulsive and easily angered by remarks made toward the people she cares about.

Along her journey as a boy, she meets some new friends. The first friend she becomes acquainted with is an extroverted soccer champion (Shuichi Nakatsu). He eventually starts to develop feelings for the lead girl, which leads to him questioning his sexuality (because she is disguised as a boy). He gets her adjusted to school and introduces her to some of his friends. He becomes a love rival throughout the story.

The school is divided by three dorms. Mizuki, the lead girl, is a part of Dorm 2. Many of her closest friends reside in the same Dormitory.

I happened to watch all of the adaptations. I didn’t watch in any particular order. I watched according to whatever series I found out about first. Though all were adaptations, of course, they were not all alike. Each story had something charming that maybe another story did not have. Some stories stayed more true to the manga than others.


The genre of this series is romantic/comedy. I am very skeptical of the romantic genre when it comes to manga or dramas. For starters, I’m not a romantic person. I think it’s mushy and to watch it makes me want to puke. It’s very hard for me to get into a romantic story, and when I do, it’s hard to keep my interest. BUT what really turns me off about the romantic genre stories are the following things:

1) Love triangles-I really, really dislike love triangles, especially when it’s involving the main character. I get it. They are supposed to make the story interesting. But for me, all they do is confuse me and make me change my mind about a romantic situation. As someone who is deeply compassionate, I always side with the underdog lover in these “triangles”, and more often than not, that “underdog” is not the main love interest. There are very few stories that turn out the way I want them to. Often, I feel dissatisfied with romantic stories. This was my problem with Twilight…Love triangles do not suit my mentality.

This is especially so if the main love interest is a douche with a bunch of other girls crawling all over him, while the “nice person” or the humble person is finishing last. These kinds of triangles irk me.

I also have a problem with love interests who are unimportant to the overall story. It’s irksome when they outshine someone who is actually important to the development of the story (Ran vs Haibara from Detective Conan would be an example). When a rival character is more important to the story, the development between the main character and the love rival will be even more interesting.

There are only a few distinct ways I can accept a love triangle.

First, I can accept a love triangle if the love rival receives a more interesting love interest than the main character. And this rarely happens.

I can also accept a love triangle if the love rival is completely idiotic, with poorly developed feelings, and a shallow outlook. For instance, all of the love rivals in Ranma ½ were complete fools with mostly bad intentions. This made Ranma and Akane such a well-developed pair, even if they were rather predictable.

I can accept a douche love rival if his story is well-developed and/or his change is so drastic it affects the events in the story. Hana Yori Dango is an example.

My favorite romance story is Cardcaptor Sakura’s Sakura and Syaoran. No romantic story has been able to top it in my book. The manga had hardly any love triangles. But everything turned out unexpected in the end. I never thought the main character would receive the sullen, raggly, uncool  Syaoran as a lover.

Peach Girl also impressed upon me.

2) I dislike a boring, predictable relationship-I don’t like those stories where you already know who will be the love interest in the end. I don’t like when characters fall in love “at first sight”. I don’t like smooth betrothals that turn out peachy in the end (unless the two really hate each other at first). I don’t like when love is predictable. Even though in real life, a predictable kind of love is a beautiful thing, it is not really entertaining in a show.

I also dislike boring or uninteresting partners. If one of those love interests are boring, dull, or too cool, I’m bored. I like people that the audience would least expect to be the love interest.

I don’t hate beautiful/handsome people, but if they have no personality beyond good looks, I do not approve of it. It’s not enough to throw a love rival in there. That doesn’t make a RELATIONSHIP interesting, that makes a story more interesting. But if the love rival is not around, and the relationship seems less interesting than when the rival was around, I can’t enjoy it.

People say a person is entitled to like who they like, but this is a story. It doesn’t mean I have to enjoy it or watch it. It doesn’t mean I won’t have preferences.

Unfortunately, Hana Kimi had many elements that irritated me. It had love triangles, so of course I sided with the underdog as usual. The main love interest was a cool, dull, douche…The exact types I dislike. The main romance story was predictable. The main relationship was boring to me and I found myself skipping all of the scenes that overdid their relationship.

But the story itself was interesting…

The thing that makes me a little iffy is the motivation. A girl, traveling all the way to a foreign country, for some complete stranger that she saw on television high-jumping….And she thinks she’s in love now? And this romance actually works? Despite the fact that she was trying to deceive him by lying and pretending to be a boy? What kind of relationship begins with deception? She’s basically a stalker fan, and rather than being sweet and endearing, it’s a little creepy and frightening that someone would even try this. Don’t try this at home, kids. The best part about dreaming about an idol is never knowing who they really are and keeping the dream alive. Trust me. Not every idol is going to turn out as receptive as Izumi Sano. In fact, most won’t, especially if you try to deceive them.

The Japanese versions do a better job in explaining away this obsession, but the other adaptations, especially the Taiwanese version, do not.


This article is a review of the adaptations I’ve watched.

*The Following Review May Contain Spoilers*

To the Beautiful You (Korean Version 2012)

hana kimi to the beautiful you (1)

This was the first one I watched. Being a fan of f(x), I wanted to watch Sulli act in this drama series. I was introduced to the Hana Kimi series through this drama.

Of all the adaptations, I felt this movie version was the most different from the original story. In many ways, the differences made it better, but in other ways, the differences made the story worse.

First, the story mostly focuses on the athletic Dorm 2 and hardly gives the other dorms any attention or development. Second, many characters that were supposed to be friends of the main character were omitted or combined with other characters. Third, many personalities and relationships were changed. Because this was the first one I watched, I didn’t realize how different it was from the original. But without knowing the original, it wasn’t hard to figure that something was missing…

The setting was ritzier than the other adaptations. The dining area showed wealth and the dorms actually looked up-scale. The dorm room Jae-Hee stays in has two beds. One has a winding staircase leading to almost another room. It’s a more advanced bunk-bed of sorts. The bathrooms even look bigger in the Korean version compared to the other adaptations. It was quite an elite-looking school.

Pros: The story was so engaging. I would say the Korean story was more entertaining than the others. There were serious and dramatic moments that made me want to know what was going to happen next. The Korean version was also a bit more realistic in presenting its school and dormitory than the other adaptations. Jae-Hee was required to bring transfer papers in order to enroll in the school. The other adaptations did not go into detail how the girls were able to enroll in the schools without transfer papers…The Korean version didn’t have the sense of exaggeration that the other versions had. This version was also more modern.

Goo Jae-Hee (Korea’s Ashiya Mizuki) is very cute and lovable. She was so cute that it was believable when random people would find out her identity and when random guys would fall in love with her.

She was careless, but not quite as dumb as some of the other girls in other adaptations (though she was still dumb). There was one scene, a dangerous scene, where she was caught in a car with a stranger. This girl had enough sense to notify someone by phone and was strong enough to fight for her life.

This version, out of all the other versions, focused the most on the romantic story.

I was also happy that f(x) songs were sprinkled throughout the show. F(x) are my baes. I was happy to see Sulli in her glorious lead moment.

Cons: They can stick Shinee’s Minho (Kang Tae-Joon) and f(x)’s Sulli (Jae-hee) in the same room. They can throw in little scenes with Minho taking off his shirt. They can try to over-emphasize the relationship between the two supposed love interests with random scenes of them falling on top of each other every chance they get…And I still did not think they belonged together. I tried my best to be team Minsul…and I just couldn’t hang.

First, of all the love interests in other adaptations, Tae-Joon was a complete butthole. Cha Eun-gyeol (played by Lee Hyun-woo), the supposed love rival, was the main character’s first friend. He was kind to the main character. He helped her feel welcome. When Tae-joon was acting like a jerk and making Jae-hee cry, who was there? Eun-gyeol was there. When Tae-joon left Jae-hee under the stars to run back to the city, who was there with Jae-hee? Eun-gyeol was there.

Eun-gyeol also struggled the most with his feelings, thinking he was gay, and really considering his feelings seriously. I was so impressed with him that moment he found the courage to admit that he loved Jae-hee (thinking she’s a boy), even risking his reputation, considering how homophobic some people can be. He said, “Girl or Guy, I love her”. I felt this character TRULY loved the main character from the inside. In my opinion, he was the strongest character in the series.

And yet, I feel like the lead girl just stomped all over his heart. Even when she gave him a chance, she rudely contacted Tae-Joon while on a date with him. I understand you don’t love him, but don’t agree to go on a date and then contact another man. That’s not even a friendly thing to do. I honestly lost all respect for this character after that. I felt that she was caught up in the glory of being around her idol, but it just didn’t feel like true love to me. It felt like an infatuation with an ideal dream…But not real.

To me, Tae-Joon only started to like her AFTER he found out she was a girl and after he found out that she was there for him. To me, he only loved the attention. Everything else sounded like BS. Eun-gyeol saw what was special about her from the very beginning.

The manga can try and pull that “he was just attracted to her femininity” crap when it comes to Shuichi Nakatsu. I don’t buy it in the Korean adaptation. I, in fact, think Tae-joon (Korea’s Izumi Sano) was just attracted to her because she was a girl and loved having the attention. But I did not think he had the same chemistry with the lead girl as Eun-gyeol.

For this reason, I did not like the main love story. They spent way too much time developing the love rival’s moments with the lead girl. That really prevented me from connecting with the main love story.

Another thing that was really distracting to me was the fact that there truly was nothing boyish about Jae-hee. She, in fact, never even tried to act like a boy. Aside from being super tall, unlike the other adaptations, and having a short hair cut, her personality was just too feminine. I’m surprised that people throughout the story couldn’t even figure it out. I feel that the director should’ve made sure that Sulli (the actress) tried to act more masculine. The Japanese and Taiwanese version recognized this a little more.

I suppose boyish girls are so rare in Korea, girls can get away with being a boy as long as they just dress like one…

And they didn’t even do a good job of developing a motivation for the lead girl. Her reasons for going to an all-boys’ school was even more suspicious than the others. They tried to say she had heard that Tae-joon stopped high-jumping because of an injury and that she just wanted to see him high-jump. But it was clear she was trying to persuade the boy to fall in love with her. Her intentions were really unclear throughout the whole show. I dislike a woman who is not direct with her feelings, especially when she uses deception to win someone over rather than being honest. It’s not fair to anyone and I just couldn’t support a relationship that was developed from that. It is annoying.

The final thing I disliked about this version was the fact that most of the main characters from the manga, some of my favorite characters, were completely omitted. Many of my least favorite characters were added, such as the lead girl’s “first love”. Remember I said I disliked love triangles? Well, I dislike love squares even more…

I disliked the fact that some characters that were considered gay in the manga were either changed or had poor, unhappy endings in the Korean version. I guess it just shows their conservatism.

Overall, this was one of my least favorite adaptations and not because it was a bad series. In fact, the series itself was probably told the best in this adaptation. I just hated the ending and how they changed the characters. I left feeling a little unsatisfied.  First, they pulled a Pretty in Pink on me when it came to Jae-Hee and Eun-gyeol.  Then, the ending failed to show the main character’s connection with the school like the other versions did. She solely seemed interested in Tae-Joon and showed hardly any development between other students. Thus, in the end, she didn’t feel like she belonged there. She just left with poor feelings and never even graduated with the other students. I didn’t feel her connection with the other cast members, so I wondered why they were even in the story.

Characters of mention:

Eun-gyeolIt’s hard to miss him. He’s lively, friendly, and active. He’s also handsome. His struggle with his feelings makes him an interesting character to look out for and really makes the story worth watching. I feel he transforms the most throughout the series, even changing his hair.

Director JangDespite the fact that she was never in the original story, I felt her presence held weight. To me, she almost seemed like a second mother to Tae-Joon. She’s his manager, and manages many sports affairs. She is a reflection of idol life in Korea.

Seol Ha-naA girl who begins as an aggressive pursuer of Tae-Joon’s, she seems a little annoying at first. But as the series progresses, she shows remarkable intelligence and strength. She’s definitely a character that is memorable.

Hanazakari no Kimitachi e: Ikemen Paradise (Japanese version 2007)

hana kimi to the beautiful you (2)

The Japanese version is pretty close to the manga, but many things were changed here, too. Many characters and events were omitted, but no personalities were changed. The Japanese version was more exaggerated and comical in the acting style. Most Japanese dramas are like this, especially if there are comical characters in the series.

The setting seemed to be in an old, rustic western style school. It was surrounded by gardens and statues reflecting a calm spirit surrounding the school. The dorms weren’t extremely big and the main character slept in a loft of sorts. Compared to the Korean version, it had more natural surroundings.

The classrooms are ridiculously large for a high school…

Shun Oguri plays in this drama as Sano Izumi…He usually plays “cool, handsome” roles. I remember him from the dramas Detective Conan and Boys Over Flowers.

Pros: I liked that the story actually developed the relationship between the main character and the other students. The cast is large in this series, and yet, each character had a life of their own. At first, I couldn’t see any character being developed in-depth because of the large cast. But I realized that was the lovable part about the Japanese adaptation. The characters were shallow, but they were fun and lively. Eventually, I began to see Mizuki (the main character) as a part of the school. She formed a close relationship with many of the characters, not just Izumi Sano and Shuichi Nakatsu. I liked that she eventually wanted to stay for more than just Sano. She grew to love all of the friends she’d made at the school. The strong bond the cast felt shined in the series, and it made the ending a tear-jerker.

I liked how supportive the school was in the end.

And who couldn’t like the scene where the school broke out as cheerleaders and began dancing to Avril Lavigne’s “Girlfriend”. XD Completely worth it.

Cons: There are very few cons for me. The thing that I felt was bittersweet was the relationship between Izumi Sano and Ashiya Mizuki. Again, there were moments where I just couldn’t ship him together with Mizuki. Nakatsu also interfered with my interest in this love story but not as bad as in the Korean version.

Both Nakatsu and Sano started off as jerks. Really, all the boys were a bit rowdy when Mizuki first came to the school. So, either one was fine with me.

Still, in the end, I hated the Nakatsu was the one hurt. He had the hardest time expressing his feelings. The difference is he found out she was a girl much sooner than the character in the Korean version.

The girl they tried to pin Nakatsu with (I guess so a rejection wouldn’t feel as bad with the audience) was dull and showed no chemistry with him, but at least a girl showed interest in him. Even in the special episode, she continued to give him chocolates and express her love. Poor Eun-gyeol in the Korean version got a girl who hadn’t seen him in years, which made for an awkward relationship that hardly developed.

The characters were a bit shallow and one-dimensional. Some characters were pointless. I would have liked some characters to be developed more, especially in Dorm 3.

There were also some pretty offensive things sprinkled without. I understand one scene was trying to put on an act, but the use of” black face” cloak in order to pretend to be a black person, along with disheveled Afros (they could have at least combed it), was just offensive.

But there was one scene where they actually had a real African American man named Bob.

And why does Japan always portray foreigners from America, especially White Americans, as having blonde hair? In the special episode, Mizuki’s foreign friend is seen sporting blonde hair. Basically, she’s supposed to be half Japanese and half White. But most mixed children still carry the dominant genes…

The actress looked like a Japanese girl with a wig on…

Overall, I enjoyed this version and would watch it again.

Characters of mention:

Namba Minami-They cast a very handsome man to play him. He is in fact one of the best looking characters. His affinity for women is one thing, but the fact that he has a strong serious side and surprisingly protects the main character and his fellow dorm mates like a big brother throughout the series makes him a character worth mentioning.

Kayashima Taiki-The man who can see spirits and detect auras. Pay attention to him. He knows a lot more than he lets on.

Sekime Kyogo-He seems like a quiet presence, but his presence is also powerful. In this drama, he was actually Mizuki’s first REAL friend. While the other dorm members were going crazy trying to recruit her to their dorm activities, or teasing her and treating her as insignificant, Sekime calmly listened to her woes and introduced her to what the school had to offer. She, in fact, found out what dorm Sano was in through him. Throughout the series, he also showed himself to be a supportive friend of Sano’s.

Nakao Senri-Probably the only completely openly gay character in this adaptation. His feelings for Namba Minami motivate his character. At first, he was the main character’s rival because he saw her as a threat to his reputation as the school “idol” (since he considers himself cute and adorable). But there was one moment in the series where he and Mizuki really bonded and connected. I really enjoyed that scene.

Dean Kitahama-A scary presence in the story. Though his moment was brief, he left an impression on my mind. His anger with what happened in his past really made me interested in him as a character. He isn’t initially likable and misunderstood.

Principal Tsubaki-She was never really a character in the original manga, but she should have been. I noticed one thing about all of these adaptations…We never met the principal of these schools. Isn’t that strange? Well, colleges don’t really have principals, so the Taiwanese version is excused.

Hanazakarino Kimitachihe (Taiwanese Version 2006)

hana kimi taiwan

Of all the adaptations, this was probably the most comical (rather than exaggerated silliness). I felt that this version reflected the manga better than the Korean version. Well, it was the first adaptation. But there were differences from the manga as well.

First off, this version did not take place in high school but in college. Most of the students were 19 years old and older. Basically, they’re all adults.

Second, this adaptation also focused mainly on Dorm 2.

Despite the fact that all of the characters are older, they actually act much younger than those in the other adaptations.

The setting is just like any normal college. Each dorm has a bunk bed and a bathroom. The rooms are very small. It is implied that the school is on a strict budget. Nan makes it clear that the food is not too tasty and that the students have to shower early because the hot water turns off at a certain time.

Pros: Ella Chen was the perfect girl to be cast as the lead female character. She did well in portraying the ditzy character while still maintaining a “boyishness”. Really, she actually looked like a boy. Ella Chen is from the girl group S.H.E. and she is known for her androgynous looks. It’s not surprising she was given this role. I was really satisfied with her portrayal and felt that she conveyed the strongest personality of all the girls cast for the lead role.

What kills me is that almost everyone in this version can almost guess she’s a girl more than in the other adaptations, but she looks the most like a boy than the other girls! Oh, the irony. If she wasn’t such a twat, I would’ve never guessed she was a girl.

While in this role, Lu Rui Xi was portrayed as an energetic, but impulsive girl. That was handled well in this adaptation. She was a little feisty in this role, but didn’t know how to pick and choose her battles well. She had the second greatest personality in this series (next to Xiu Yi).

I really enjoyed all of the characters in this show. They didn’t really add every character from the manga, but they did put in the most important characters. I felt the lead girl developed a strong relationship with her fellow dorm members.

Jin Xiu Yi provided a lot of color to the story and made it extra enjoyable.

What I liked most about the story was the fact that Jin Xiu Yi was treated with better dignity than the other love rivals. Sure, he was in love with Rui Xi. But, of course, we knew she was not interested in him. In fact, she seemed rather annoyed by him. I’m glad they found him an even better love interest, one that made his relationship even better than the main love story. I would really like a separate story regarding Xiu Yi and his love interest.

However, Taiwan did the best of all the adaptations in developing the main love story. I really liked the sensible and perceptive Zuo Yi Quan (Izumi Sano). He wasn’t really a jerk, he was just quiet and to himself. He was a bit of a nerd who liked to read. And his tattoo on his right arm was just everything. ❤ He wasn’t arrogantly jealous like Tae-joon who really didn’t care about Eun-gyeol’s feelings. Quan was more perceptive and helpful.

Cons: The ending was bittersweet. There really isn’t anything I dislike about this version, but I wish it had ended a little different. It really left a cliff-hanger. Now, I want to see more. XD

Though I liked Ella Chen’s portrayal of the main character and felt she acted the most like the manga character, that is just it. She was really annoying in the manga. So, she was really annoying in this adaptation. She really had little clue how to act like a boy and play off the fact that she liked Quan. She also didn’t know how to pick and choose her battles carefully, so she wound up in situations she couldn’t even fight off. And who was the first person she screamed annoyingly for when she got herself in stupid situations? Quan.

I also wish Xiu Yi’s feelings had been taken seriously, but in the end, it all worked out.

I also want to point out that there were quite a few holes in the story and some scenes were just too forced or not explained. For instance, there was one scene in episode 6 where the main character is caught in a situation with a stranger and so must flee for her life. Of course, Quan, being Mr. Loverboy, saves her. He tries to carry her back home, but loses his footing. They end up isolated from others, far away from home, for hours, and the main character develops an illness. Now, by this time, all of the characters have shown that they have cell phones. Instead of using his cell phone or Riu Xi’s, he calls “Help!” over and over again. Not once did he look in his pocket to see if he had his cell phone or look in her pocket to see if she had hers. And okay, say he forgot his phone and maybe she did, too. Why wasn’t that explained? To me, it felt that the scene was put in there to build upon the romance between Quan and Rui Xi, but it was constructed poorly. It was confusing because clearly they both had cell phones…Therefore, it just didn’t feel natural. Maybe Quan wanted to get lost with her, but if he really cared about her, wouldn’t he want her to get home so she can get better? And maybe there was no signal…But these are guesses. It should have been explained.

To add, Xi Yi has a cell phone. While he was sitting at the house, waiting and worrying, why didn’t he call Rui Xi to see where she was? Why did no one suggest to call the missing teens by cell phone? They thought about calling the police but no one thought to call Quan or Rui Xi? It was simply unbelievable.

Just like it was unbelievable that no one went through Rui Xi’s school files. How was she able to enroll in the school? Who helped her forge papers and create a new identity? This was also not explained in the Japanese version.

But overall, the characters were entertaining and everyone lived happily ever after in the end. So what can I say, this version was my favorite. 😉 The story itself was over-comical, but it lifted my spirits.

Characters of Mention:

Lu Rui Xi-She was honestly a girl with a lot of personality. It is hard to forget her. Of all the girls, she showed the strongest individuality and made me fall in love with her. She wasn’t just a cute and pretty face. She was never sober and depressing. And unlike the other girls, she was the most honest with her intentions. They didn’t come up with some lame excuse for her. On the flip side, that also means her intentions were not pure. XD

Zuo Yi Quan-A hot body with a tattoo is one thing, but intelligence, practicality, and sensibility are whipped cream, sprinkles, with a cherry on top.

Jin Xiu Yi-Charming, lovable, and also with a big personality, he was bound to be a favorite of mine. This character comes across energetic and brave, but we also see moments where he is sensitive, caring, and supportive. I also admired his courage when he came out as “gay” (though not really). Watching him in action is very entertaining. He’s also handsome and has a sexy voice.

Mei Tian-Long-haired and sexy, this man is gay and proud. I’m very happy they did not try to change him. He wasn’t stereo-typically gay either. He is handsome, smart, and knows his craft. He was also a good guardian for the main character and got her out of many sticky situations. His portrayal was very interesting.

Da Shu-The man who can see spirits. He is really cute. I’m surprised no one pointed out how cute he was. He was not considered for the school pageant and I kept thinking…Man, he would look good in a dress.

Julia-Rui Xi’s feisty American friend. She is no stereotype. She is part Chinese and speaks fluent Chinese but also speaks English. In fact, she speaks in English often throughout her time in Taiwan. Of all the adaptations, this was the only one that developed Julia as a character. I like her voice.

Shen Le-Initially an irritating butthole who reveals more to him than expected.

Yang Yang-Of all the adaptations of Senri Nakao, he is the perfect depiction of cute. The other guys in other adaptations believed they were cute, but umm…No. This guy is really cute. He’s quite sweet, but has a vindictive side to him.

Wu Wan Juan-A sports journalist who focuses on Quan’s success as a high jumper. She wrote under the pen name “KK” and is actually where the lead character got all of her information. She has an interesting but pretty face. Despite her eagerness to get the scoop, she revealed a moral side.

Yuan Qiu Ye-A mysterious and yet strange photographer. He is quite perceptive and talented. He fascinates me.

Wang Tian Si-Leader of Dormitory 1, he seems mostly like a meat-head character, but he is a character who fights fairly and takes responsibility. I can honestly say I respect him.

Man, there are so many characters that I loved in this adaptation.

Hanazakari no Kimitachi e: Ikemen Paradise (Japanese version 2011)

hana kimi to the beautiful you (1)

So Japan decided it would be a good idea to remake Hana Kimi for a modern audience.  But the only thing more modern about this version was the cast and setting. For 2011, it wasn’t over-emphasized with new technology, which was surprising. I didn’t understand why this new version was even made.

But since it was…I gave it a try.

This version was similar to the original, though not as exaggerated and more dramatic.

Someone decided that an Akb48 member should be cast as the lead. That proved interesting.

The setting was just like the original: An old, western-style school with old dormitories. Each dormitory has two beds and a loft of sorts. The difference between this version and the original is that the school was even more worn-down and falling apart. Literally. The plumbing was screwed, students were falling through the floor, and it needed a paint job badly. Still, the students love the school. I’m not sure if the school improved, but apparently the students continued to stay there, despite its flaws.

Pros: Ashiya Mizuki’s role was less annoying than the others. Maybe because she just couldn’t get away with acting dumb like the other girls in other adaptations. With the other girls, it felt that their selfish actions were handled too delicately (I mean a girl sneaks in a school to meet her idol, deceives everyone, and tosses feelings aside for her own selfish feelings…for a guy she hardly knows? And hardly recognizes the dangers? Unbelievable). But in this version, much sooner than the others, she recognized when it was time for her to take her leave more than once. And really, it made her character a little more tolerable (I really despise the ditzy female characters in anime, but especially when she gets away with everything).

Unlike the other girls, she actually met this guy before and had a decent conversation with him. She actually formed a friendship prior to the story. It wasn’t too unbelievable when she wanted to meet him again.

I also liked how well she connected with the rest of the cast, which was just like the original version. They didn’t take that away from the story like the Korean version did.

All of the characters were just as lively and colorful as in the original, and many were better interpretations of the characters.

Though this was 2011, it had a timeless, classic feel that I appreciated.

Cons: This version did a very poor job of developing the relationship between Ashiya Mizaki and Sano Izumi. I thought the Korean version was bad. This one beat the Korean version as having the least developed romance of all the adaptations. And the Korean version wasn’t even poorly developed, just not as developed as the friendship. At least in the Korean version Tae-Joon made many efforts to express his interest in the main character. Sano Izumi never expressed any sort of interest whatsoever besides him yelling at her out of jealousy or anger. He never bought her anything. He never even kissed her properly. There were hardly any romantic moments between them. Most of the times, he made the lead character sad. But oh no. She’ll put up with anything. She’s a martyr. She’s humble and submissive. Somehow, some way, she can just tell that his feelings are sincere (though he never makes clear these “imaginary feelings”). Whenever he gets mad at her, she likes to blame herself because she seems to think his feelings matter more than her own.

Shuichi Nakatsu hit it on the nail many times. Their feelings were TOO reserved. So reserved, in fact, I felt she had an abuse syndrome of some sort. The guy was nothing but mean to her. He never supported her at all. All she did was support him. It just didn’t even feel worth it to me. It felt dull.

And here she has a man, Nakatsu, who is willing to make her happy. She has a man beside her who cries when she cries and laughs when she laughs. And yet, she falls in love with Mr. Reserved and Mr. Shallow. And I know a girl can’t help her feelings, but isn’t she an example of why so many girls end up heart-broken and deceived? Because they blindly go after men that are not good for them, that harm them emotionally. This is another case of the “nice guy finishing last”. Looking at this story, I believe the saying is true. She was in love with a bad boy, a mean guy, the guy she couldn’t have, the idol that all the girls wanted, the complicated one. Not the guy who was determined to protect her, oh no. How dumb can she be?

Still, it didn’t make it any better that Nakatsu never received a proper love interest. I think the original girl that dated him was cute but dull. Nakatsu has such a large personality. He needs someone who makes things more interesting, not someone who dries him up.

Speaking of Nakatsu, I felt this guy received way too much air-time. I mean, he was in every scene. He almost seemed more important than Sano Izumi. He also carried strong leadership abilities…There are hints that these abilities led him to being a part of the “Sakura Committee”. He was always the one motivating everyone and trying to get everyone to smile. And who did that for him? No one. But at least the main character recognized her selfishness, unlike in the other versions.

Another thing that possibly contributed to a poor development of the main love story was the lack of time. In the beginning, everything seemed rushed. The main character’s connection with the school happened fast. Nakatsu’s confession occurred too soon. But unfortunately, Sano and Ashiya’s relationship didn’t happen fast enough. This could be because there were only 11 episodes. Still, it made the story a bit bland and superficial. I couldn’t connect with this version as well as the others, though I still teared up at the end (more than I can say about the Korean version).

What ultimately disturbed me was how they brought back ONE cast member from the old series from Hibari 4. I was happy to see her, but she seemed out of place in a sea of new faces. I placed her with the old cast. Her chemistry with them was so strong; I couldn’t understand why she was even put in this version.

Characters of Mention:

Nakatsu: His energetic personality shines in any version, but in this version, he had an even stronger presence. His leadership abilities were made evident in this adaptation.

Namba-Sempai-As dormitory leader, he always catches my attention in the Japanese adaptations. Even when unexpected things are thrown his way, he keeps a cool head and looks over the dorm like a big brother.

Taiki Kayashima-He’s always interesting, but in this version of the adaptation he was more than just a weirdo. He was the voice of reason and wisdom. He gave many of the characters advice almost like an adult figure. His abilities to see spirits and read the auras of people had more of a purpose in this adaptation and I’m glad they made him more useful. He took the place of Dr. Hokuto Umeda in many instances, who often usually gave the main character advice in other adaptations.

Nakao Senri-Much cuter than usual…In fact, he could also pass for a girl. He was just as short as the main character, so she had no need to feel awkward in that regard. He had striking dimples that made him noticeable.

Kyogo Sekime-He was more than just a friend in this version. He was someone with his own trials and challenges as well as victories. He was also one of the only people Sano Izumi actually smiled at. He hardly smiled at Ashiya Mizuki.

Hanayashiki Hibari-Guess who is back to reprise her role as St. Blossom’s fierce leader? Yes, the same actress from the 2007 version is playing this role, too!

Kishinosato Juri-A delicate flower, a graceful presence, but a vindictive heart. Very complex.

Watanabe Ikkei –I was wondering who cooked the food for all the students. This was the only version that developed the chef as a character.

Itsuki Sakura-One of the headmistresses of the school. She’s a strange woman. Really, really strange. Somehow, though, she sees the potential of her students.

So that’s my spin on the many adaptations based on the Hana Kimi manga series! Have any of you readers watched? If you have, tell me your favorite drama or moments? What do you think? Leave me a comment and let me know!
