Houses of Power

17 06 2010

 The power of any one man is also measured by the freedom he has.

Fortified by the Angular

In traditional texts the accidental dignity of a planet to a great extent relies on its location whether it be just below the horizon in the East, or just above the horizon in the West, or in the most Southerly part of the sky known also as the Midheaven, or Northerly part known also as the Imum Colei.

Power is what this is primarily about, the power that a person possesses will be described by planets in the 1st house and in the 10th house. The whole idea of the 1st house as the “mask” is actually without much reason. The planets that rise in the 1st are the planets that are on my side in life. One identifies with these planets in the beginning and one eventually becomes them and embodies them in life.

The difference between a person with a strong will and a strong reason for existence and one who is weak or not in control in their life is the difference between a Master and a Slave. The house of slaves is traditionally the 6th house, the most cadent place and only less unfortunate than the 12th, house of imprisonment and abandonment.

A Master of his life, and destiny, a man who controls and has power over his own environment, over his choices in life and over the people around him will have powerful planets placed in the 1st and 10th houses. A man whose wife is powerful or whose father is powerful and support him through their power will have planets similarly placed in the 7th and 4th houses. A King or Prime Minister who has power in the 1st house will not bend his knees to anyone, Margaret Thatcher is a prime example with Saturn rising on the Ascendant in accidental power. A King who is in the 12th house, such as Louis XVI will always suffer at the hands of enemies, and his power will always be taken from him, and he will always become a slave of others. The truth of the world is that, he who sticks his neck out will win. It is those people who shy away from attention that inevitably lose in life.

The first house is pure selfishness. So much is also true. The Eastern Horizon at dawn is characterised always by a red hue, reminiscent of violence and aggression. This is not to say that to be successful in life one must be violent, merely aggressive, merely arrogant. It means that one must ask for what one wants with brazenness, with irritation at the others around you who are also asking. The difference between success and failure in life is marked in the stars.

More Accidental Dignity = More Power

Speaking of Angularity though, there are more possibilities that exist which serve to increase the locus of self-control and mastery over others. A planet that is swift as the ancients say, or fast and in forward motion doubles its power in any house. A planet therefore that is in forward motion is one that is moving forward in life rather than backwards. This little facet is all important in any idea referring to power. If a man is signified by a planet in forward motion, then his life moves forward, from one thing to the next, from one goal to the next, it means that there is no waiting around or procrastinating in life. It means that one would go for a job, do it and then move on to the next with success rather than doubt.

A retrograde man signified by a 1st house planet in retro motion is a man in self doubt, a man who looks back at what he’s done in self criticism, it signifies the man who regrets, who does not move forward, forgetting the past with ease. Self doubt is not conducive to the locus of control, it is not conducive to power, because while the retrograde man contemplates his decisions, others take what is rightfully his.

Unhindered and Unbound

The man further still, who is unhindered or not subject to some great power, as signified by the 17 degree orb of the Solar Ray, is at liberty.  Under the Sun, one is made a slave by a great power and oppression, so it makes sense that out of those beams the free man can move forward and be his own king rather than a kneeling subject. The ancients called such subjugation “combustion” or “under the beams”.

To note, the man of freedom and self-mastery is also only truly free if he is unafraid and out of the reach of “the tyranny of evil men” that sometimes beset him from all sides. To have a planet in the 1st yet square to Saturn or Mars in the 10th or 4th signifies that he is under attack from either his own father or from some other authority signified by the Midheaven. Yet, although the ancients described this influence as most “malefic” or “evil”, the man who is strong ought to be able to defeat such nuisances. The “evil” signified by Mars’ square is that of violence, and the evil signified by Saturn is that of another variety which is the cause of “melancholy”.

Power for Good and Evil: Dignity of Essence

The one who unhindered by the great authority, or evil men on either side, the one who is corporeally present and moves forward towards what he desires, will inevitably rise into power and authority over his surroundings and over others.

That the power of one does not exist without others giving themselves over to that one, is the next important stage. It is well and good to be strong and the wellspring of all wonder and admiration, to give orders and to be obeyed, yet as always power to do good or evil is always present.

The planet with essential dignity, i.e. the beautiful woman with a beautiful voice yet placed in the 12th house and retrograde will stay indoors, read poetry and will never be seen. Under the Sun’s beams would add that her father keeps her there also. The woman is good, pure, etc. by the essential dignity of Libra Venus, yet the power or loci of control is not with her, and the ancients would say that she has misfortune or “debility” by accident.

Yet, if the beautiful Venusian light rises in the first, unhindered, the power to shine will prevail in beauty, kindness and goodness to all. She will be a master of all through either beauty or through kind actions and words. Saturn rising and unhindered is likewise capable of goodness, but this will only be through its “essential dignity”. Placed in Capricorn or Aquarius, an in power Saturn will only do good, he will refrain from evil. The good works of Saturn in power are wielding power and organising the world, for without dignity he is not able to “do the job well”.

On Freedom

The man who is blessed, is the man with dignity by essence, and unhindered by circumstance. The man who is truly free has autonomy, fears no evil, fears no authority, he has no doubt, and he moves forward pitted against all others. Yet the man who is truly blessed is dignified and acts in accordance with his true nature, in harmony with that nature. He does things well and does not hurt others.

On the Neptune Jupiter Conjunction

22 12 2009

This conjunction which has taken place three times during 2009 has I believe brought me some wisdom. The wisdom which I have gained is something difficult to pin down, which is befitting to the nature of Neptune.

However, I have found, and it has crystallised in my mind as distinctive thought with a finite logic during this final conjunction in December 2009. I have found that the world has its pre destiny, that events are meant, to a certain great extent, to happen.

The knowledge that I have gained is that as human beings we are autonomous. And in order to find inner joy it is necessary to be entirely alone, Aquarius the sign of humanity is also the sign of independence and solitude. The reason for Aquarius´s knowledge is that it is able to be alone.

Naturally Saturn has played a great part in this configuration, as the dispositor. And since Saturn is in such a strong position currently, the wisdom has channelled its way through the sign of Libra.

Inner peace has come to me, and I am in awe to it, wondering how long it might last. Saturn does not remain in the same house for too long. I have found with the current transit that there is no need for anything. What I mean is that happiness can be found when we realise that there is a destiny.

It´s when we realise that everything is perfect as it is, that´s when you can find it. Nothing needs changing, and the changes that come are in fact part of the plan.

I haven´t come up with an answer for human suffering, which seems to be interminable. There are indeed logistical answers which are possible. However, people are filled with such a deep dissatisfaction with life. In part human autonomy and individualisation is the future, since the Age of Aquarius is already here. But more than that I find that it is an acceptance of Fate or at least working with those cards that are dealt, instead of throwing them out and looking or trying to get what other people have. It´s that Cardinal sin of “wanting what thy neighbour has”, which to me appears to be cause for most unhappiness.

In the personal philosophy which I follow, Saturn plays a major part. It means that I work with things, situations, people right through to their natural end. Saturn rules permanence. It´s not about looking for new philosophies, religions, it´s not about discovering something “new”. I was born with a cultural heritage, and with family. You don´t find the answers by abandoning them either. This is not to say that you close yourself to the world and its ideas and thoughts either. Read everything, speak to everyone, listen to everyone and read everything, but what sticks will be what is truly worth knowing, everything else is just the road that you travel.





Brave New World: An indictment against Democracy and defense of Marriage and Kingship

10 12 2009

Sebastian. ‘Scape being drunk, for want of wine.

Gonzalo. I’ th’ commonwealth I would by contraries Execute all things: for no kind of traffic Would I admit; no name of magistrate; Letters should not be known; wealth, poverty, And use of service, none; contract, succession, Bourn, bound of land, tilth, vineyard, none; No use of metal, corn, or wine, or oil; No occupation, all men idle, all, And women too; but innocent and pure: No sov’reignty.

 Sebastian. And yet he would be king on’t. Antonio. The latter end of his commonwealth forgets the beginning.

Gonzalo. All things in common nature should produce Without sweat or endeavour. Treason, felony, Sword, pike, knife, gun, or need of any engine Would I not have; but nature should bring forth, Of its own kind, all foison, all abundance To feed my innocent people!

 Sebastian. No marrying ‘mong his subjects?

Antonio. None, man; all idle; whores and knaves.

Gonzalo. I would with such perfection govern, sir, T’ excel the golden age. Sebastian. Save his majesty!

 

These lines are taken from one of Shakespeare´s last plays, “The Tempest”. Gonzalo, the wise counsellor to the King speaks some strange ideas about society and how people ought to be governed. In reality this is what the Modern World has endeavoured to strive for. These are the principles on which Republics and Democracies have founded themselves on.

A “free society”, one in which no one must marry or pledge allegiance to any lord or king who might act tyrannically sounds like a just one. What really happens though is exactly that which Antonio mockingly suggests: that all men become knaves (deceitful and unreliable) and all women whores.

We already know in our western world that “all politicians are liars”. This is plain fact in democratic nations, because all elected politicians are always shamed and brought to disgrace over one thing or another. There is no honour in representation and democracy because there is no honour in making promises that cannot and will not ever be fulfilled; (the only way that anyone gets elected).

The same element of “lowest common denominator” is exactly as described by Shakespeare´s character Antonio. With no marrying, there is no honour between men and women, and in essence they are simply demoted to the same status as animals. Antonio says whores and knaves.

The idea that one can pledge oneself to another person, or to one´s country and king is one that instills in a person loyalty. In our modern democratic world it appears that marriage is no longer taken seriously, men and women live with each other and in essence fuck each other, and they are fucking whores and knaves (liars). There is no loyalty between people and there is no sense of familial tie in a democratic state, because women and men will sell themselves and betray each other just as the politician will betray the people who elect him.

I the author of this little proposition am a firm believer in fate and in destiny. Looking back over the Ancient Republics these always spurred expansion for the civilisations which took them up. But inevitably all Republics of old became kingdoms or empires. And the world republic in which we now live will also become an Empire simply because the expansion which it has undergone since its foundation in the late 18th century cannot continue and will not continue.

The fate of illegitimacy and dishonour is to strive for and become honourable. Power will always seek to justify itself, and it can only ever truly justify itself once it becomes sacred. This is not so much about freedom, as it is about LOYALTY, about giving yourself over to one person rather than selling out to whoever offers you something better on the spur of the moment.

 The monarchies which currently exist in our world are all but a laughing stock. They have no power whatsoever. The democracies which reign supreme are obviously guided by reason and by logical thinking, but in the end they are not loyal to anyone, they exist for no-one which is why they are simply corruptible. There is and must be a natural order to things in this world. The natural order comes from one supreme thought which is also one God.

There is one destiny and one fate. This fate is governed by God. Once we acknowledge that there is only one rightful king, the same way that there is one rightful mother and one rightful father and in terms one rightful husband or wife, and that to be disloyal, to search after different ones is to overthrow the will of God. If we were loyal we would cease to be whores and knaves. If we were loyal, the sacred rites which are afforded in life would be respected and our children would not grow up bastardised by their parents lack of loyalty to one person or one idea.





Neptune Signs

26 09 2008

Neptune Pisces

Magic is in the air. Magic more to the point is in the water supply.

When Neptune slips into the sign of Pisces in 2012, illusion and beauty will fill the world, there will be such fine emotion, such merging and people will feel that they are one with the Universe and with each other. Water of course is what connects the world, not only are human beings mostly water, but so is the Earth’s surface. The Mayas have predicted that the coincidence of Neptune Pisces, of which they knew nothing about with their own Astrological system heralded the End of the Age.

Now in true Neptune fashion, half the population have taken these words to signify the end of the world. But of course logic states that this is not so, our Solar system is stable, and changes slowly. Pisces is often confused, often does not know the difference between logic and imagination. So there will be part of the population that truly believes that the end is nigh. And they will make their contribution to the feeling that will permeate the world… because crisis and confusion often does bring forth moments of clarity and redemption from the impending catastrophe.

There are musicians who have Neptune placed in Pisces, who were in tune with the finer emotions of humanity. They were able to use that talent to affect people through their art, through their creativity, they were able to capture people’s hearts. This placement is the most powerful placement for Neptune, Neptune Pisces is spiritually awake, and the most sensitive placements of Neptune.

Neptune Aquarius

What’s wrong with being alone? There are many people out there, who are alone, who feel alone, who are in, for whatever reason, emotional islands. The nature of humanity is that we are all born into the world this way, that the human body is separate from all other human bodies.

It is easy to see that people are trying to connect with each other. The real reason for groups and clubs, may not be the knowledge and the actual interest which unites, but, rather the uniting, the being together, that counteracts the lonely and emotionally detached experience of Aquarius.

Neptune is a fine planet, it’s the planet which acts on the human sensibilities, emotion which is even more sensitive than the emotion of the Moon. So while Neptune transits the sign of Aquarius, groups of people all around the world will be able to come in contact with finer feelings, with the soul of the Solar System.

Having modern rulership over Venus’s exaltation, it is easy to see that Neptune is sentimental and very attached to feelings of love. But these feelings don’t just project onto one person or one concept. For Aquarius, it is so important to accept and understand the whole, to bring forth the collective approach. Because Neptune has so much compassion, and Aquarius believes in the Brotherhood of Man, Aquarius Neptune will do all it can to erase the discrimination, to put a stop to other people’s suffering. It does this in a methodical way, because it is under the rulership of Saturn and Uranus. There is a need to create both systems which are all-inclusive, but also a need to connect with someone.

Neptune has a lot of emotional needs. in Aquarius it reaches out to other people, to try to make friends, to not be alone. This is a noble placement for Neptune.

Neptune Capricorn

Neptune is the planet of imagination and illusions. Capricorn symbolises the father. The father of Capricorn Neptune is likely to be idealised. Neptune has the effect of making the father psychic or highly sensitive. Those are positive manifestations of the energy, negative manifestations are those associated with the down side of Neptune, confusion, the wrong end of the stick, lies, deceptions, and of course absense.

Capricorn also rules institutions and governments. Capricorn Neptune therefore has similar effects for these institutions, the heads of state of the Eastern European states and of Russia are destined to be senstive, psychic and idealistic, they are likely at times to deceive, but looking at 1990-1993, the countries whose consitutions were born in this period will have both Saturn and Uranus close by in either the same sign or in Aquarius, so the power and the backbone is all-present.

Neptune Sagittarius

Star Wars

It wasn’t so much the actual wars that captured my imagination about these films which came out towards the end of the Neptune in Sagittarius transit, but more the adventure, the expansiveness of it, different worlds with lush forests and mountains, as well as Icy worlds or desert worlds, and then the noble and bold fight against darkness by the force. It also included a rather exotic and beautiful princess from a distant galaxy and the Jedi Knights, who were all filled with great belief in the heroism and bravery that is of the essence of Sagittarius which is Fire. The films which began then were all about expansion, of going further on a journey which was as spiritual as it was about the hot princess. The “Force” was a spiritual power which could only be mastered by knowledge and wisdom, these were possessed by the wise Obi Wan Kenobe and Yoda, who were the masters and were Jedi because they knew how to use their knowledge of the force for Good rather than Evil. Sagittarius is a sign of strange and foreign, or exotic places but also has much affinity with animals, and in the Star Wars films there are a vast array of various different species of alien half human half animal who just like the Centaur of Sagittarian myth are wise and on the side of the Light.

Neptune made Star Wars a myth which was so in tune with the Sagittarian expanive feeling, with Neptune in that sign it was something which was all about dreaming and fulfilling an ideal, and the ideals of Sagittarius are similare to Neptune’s visions, which is why this was combination works very well, combining expansive noble qualities with idealism, compassion and a sense of being out there in something great and wondersome. It should be noted that three more films were made during the transit of Pluto in Sagittarius, staying fairly true to the original soul of the films. Neptune of course had moved on into Aquarius, and with it also went the idea of the universe being inexhaustible and expansive because the plots and themes and characters were already known… Aquarius has the facts remember and doesn’t need to go out searching, but to simply resolve. It is interesting though how the Dark Side features in the newer films with great awareness of its power, Pluto working his total catharsis and painful transformation through the Spiritual dimension… the pain of Anakin Skywalker is Plutonic, it’s beyond what any human being ought to take, but it does explain, and that is Neptune sextiling its earlier place in Sagittarius from Aquarius, bringing true understanding.





Pluto in Aquarius

24 09 2008

I am not going to make predictions about what will happen in 2023 onwards, though that would be fun. But I do think that Pluto in Aquarius is an interesting topic. Here is my take on Pluto in Aquarius.

Elizabeth I, Queen of England had Pluto in Aquarius placed in the 1st house. This person was a writer and a poet, as well as a monarch and symbol of sovereignty. She embodied Pluto in the first house, by maintaining power. But that power was not solely hers, it was of course, in Aquarian style shared. Elizabeth was no dictator, she presided and encouraged her country to begin an era of cultural experimentation, of scientific advancement and rewarded her subjects for their ultimate voyages of discovery. Elizabeth was also known as the “Virgin Queen,” she did not marry and was a Virgo Sun, Virgo is the sign of duty and this fits with her sacrificing her love life for her country. But the 1st house is the house which is most associated with a person, which makes someone who they are more than any other planetary placement. Scorpio is on the tenth house cusp, and therefore Pluto disposits that highest honour and esteem into the first through Pluto in Aquarius.

Aquarius is a sign which is often alone, yet wants, society. So it is befitting that Elizabeth patronised the likes of William Shakespeare, Christopher Marlowe, Ben Jonson, Francis Drake, Francis Bacon, Sir Walter Raleigh and Sir Humphrey Gilbert. She rewarded people who were cultural creators, poets, play writers, adventurers, pirates, explorers and colonisers of “new worlds.” These people were all doing something to expand the English National consciousness, they were contributing to the construction of a society, which was not totally reliant on singular religious codes, but dialogic, offering rebellion, change, intellectual freedom, freedom to roam, while still maintaining itself as a power to which all paid respect.

Simon Bolivar, was accredited with being one of the leaders of the liberation of South America from the yoke of Spanish Empire. This man was a Freemason, and a leader of armies. He was a fighter and he had Pluto placed in natal 11th house in Aquarius, with Scorpio ruling the eighth. He was instrumental in the transferral of collective resources from an empire, to independence. Something that he does have in common with Elizabeth and it is just a curiosity is that he was a widower who’s wife died early on, and who never remarried. In essence he was alone for most of his life. Even with the Sun in Leo in the 5th house and with Neptune in Libra in the 7th.

Pluto in Aquarius is about changing a system, and a society. People who have this placement are motivated by seeing themselves outside, or above the current system and are inclined to alter it, in order to change human social interactions, not just locally but on a national and international scale.





Venus Signs

24 09 2008

Venus Gemini

This is the sign that isn’t satisfied with one of anything. Natives with this placement should read poetry about love, read novels with depth right the way through… to the end. They are capable of sticking through to the end, so long as it involves constant mental stimulation, variety and change. Bob Dylan has this placement, his singing voice as shown by Venus was never a “fine singing voice,” more like a gritty and smoky shout, but his lyrics are lengthy, it was after all the words that mattered more than anything. Even more than the meaning behind them…?

Venus Gemini is a fun loving fun-lover.

Venus Aries

Such intense feeling but for such a short period of time. What happened? Did you get bored so quickly of my love? Love is meant to be lasting. This placement is about being independent and strong, also indicates a love of self, which is in direct conflict with the idea of loving someone else.

Aries Venus is active, outgoing and pursues other people. It is also the placement which may be selfish in love. This is the reason this planet is placed in detriment in this sign. However, the independence of this place and simple strength of Aries makes anyone with this placement attractive in themselves and charismatic as leaders and role models. This is a classic “pin-up” film star placing. Marilyin Monroe, Pierce Brosnan, George Clooney, Albert Einstein, Jennifer Aniston, Jack Nicholson, Cristiano Ronaldo are all examples of the individual personality with much Aries charisma.

Venus Taurus

<!–[if gte mso 9]> Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 <![endif]–>

<!–[endif]–>What’s it worth? What’s its real value?

If it creates something, of real value to people then it’s worth doing. This placement is about finding the value in things, and working out if the product will be of benefit, will make life more secure, pleasant and essentially easy and happier for people. These people are motivated by values.

Musicians and Painters: Ella Fitzgerald, Fitzgerald had the most luscious voice and warmth, coming from her personality. Richard Wagner… Created some music of real value, lasting music of deep passion and emotion. Eric Clapton, has written many love songs and been one of the most solid long lasting musicians of the Rock era. Salvador Dali’s paintings question what reality is, what we value in life. Paul McCartney, Ron Wood, Franz Joseph Haydn. William Joseph Turner the painter.

Politicians and Philosophers: Karl Marx: determined the value system and paradigm of material value changing the face of the world’s politics. Adolph Hitler: Was searching for values for the German Nation. Michael Moore: Questions the values of modern American politics. Princess Diana, and her son Prince William.

Venus Virgo

I wasn’t good enough for you the moment you set eyes on me. I was interesting, i was odd to you but that translated into attraction for you, which was never really attraction, it was more of an interest, and then I said things which were peculiarly formed which provoked thoughts in your head, which translated into a funny feeling, which allowed you to speak, which made you feel like you were listened to, and that feeling came close, it came very close but it never came close enough to let you let your guard down because it was never the right time, because it just wasn’t perfect, because I made you nervous, which translated itself into a feeling but you weren’t sure which feeling, but when you finally worked it out it was too late.

You were so sweet with your words, you always considered and thought about me and I knew you were thinking and considering me, but I wasn’t sure about what you wanted because you always kept pulling away, and I eventually gave up, but I still feel grateful for your kindness and gentleness.

Venus Capricorn

She builds our love up in her head like a castle. She builds it up on block and on stone, she creates it in solid form. She builds up our love somehow with persistent and painstaking determination. She is grounded and happy, she is so slow, but so sure, and yet I admire the fact that she doesn’t give up… the fact that she makes me feel wanted even though I give her reason to think I don’t want her. But there she is again, cautiously working her way up, working me up into feeling something for her. She earns my respect for being so persistent and unflinching, and respect is needed in love…

Venus Libra

Venus placed in Libra in the natal chart.

This is the essentially dignified place for Venus. It is akin to having power through weakness, in the sense that it is the opposing force to Aries Mars. Venus represents the female form; if Mars is the warrior archetype, the masculine, male energy, then Venus is the female counterpart, this is the damsel, the girl, the bride. And just as the ideal of Mars is strongest in Aries, as a warrior, or soldier, so the ideal of Venus in Libra is strongest as the opposite side of the spectrum, that of harmony instead of war, and that of alliance and peace. Libra Venus is well represented as a beautiful princess, daughter, or bride; it is said that in times past, women did not have choice in such matters, and that their fates were decided by others. Perhaps this is still true for those with Venus Libra often ask others to decide for them, only wanting to please. But in pleasing, they also often get what they want anyway because the nature of this placing is so fortunate that either option is fortunate to them; and it is probably where the indecision arises from in the first place.

A person with this aspect is pathetic in love. This person is stupid, and will actually believe “words of love” whether they are spoken to him or whether he speaks them to someone else, who is left wondering what this person really wants. What they really want is to live the fantasy of love, actually they only feel alive if they feel loved, and sometimes can only feel turned on if that emotion is fulfilled. Strange, because Venus is actually in an Air sign and as such does possess intelligence here. The most important thing for this person, is said to be harmony, but this is essentially not true. The most important thing to Venus in Libra is honest beauty.

As Keats said:

“Truth is beauty, and beauty is truth, and that is all you need to know.”

<!–[endif]–>

Venus Pisces

I have loved you in past lives, or you have loved me in past lives. I am not good for you, but I hope that you will still love me. I am not good, i am lacking and lost, I am lonely and I am helpless in this world, I look to you to sooth my pain away, and your smiling happy-go-lucky, and all-loving self saves me from certain doom.

~Yes I have known you before, before I knew that I loved you, I knew you. I didn’t know that you were there, that you existed even, and I am so sorry that I never heard or saw what you felt for me, and I am sorry that you suffered for such a long time, without me knowing. I am glad that i know about you now, and I hope you’ll not let me pass you by again, and I hope that you will not forget the promise that you made to me. Stay true to me, have faith in me, have belief, and I will sacrifice everything for you.

Venus Scorpio

She loved me, so she picked on me.

She loved me so she hurt me.

She loved me so she spread vicious rumours about me.

She loved me so she went with someone who she hates.

Venus Cancer

Venus placed in Cancer is completely defensive about love. Venus takes her queue from her mother or father, she will look either for someone who will protect her, or for someone who she might play mother with. Venus in Cancer are very sensitive and will take things to heart easily. This is a highly emotionally reactive place for Venus, who’s moods are extremely changeable.

Cancer Venus should shower all of their affection on family members, and should make their home a beautiful and comforting place to live in order to find happiness and love.

Venus Leo

You possess personality. When you step into a room, you have an effect. You are amazing. You like to think of yourself as a film star. Certainly Venus in Leo loves themselves, but is able to give love also in a very warm and affectionate way. This placing is one of the most socially popular combinations.

Venus Sagittarius

To find love and happiness, go exotic. Venus Sagittarius loves to be far far away, and loves the idea of of meeting someone on a train, plane or ship. This person is faithful, due to the nature of Sagittarius, and generous and honest too. Venus in Sagittarius is always searching for love which is often from beyond the city walls. In order to find happiness they need an intelligent travelling companion who is as excited by the thought of going some place new as they are.

Venus Aquarius

This kind of Venus likes to have intellectual equality. They are more like a Venus Gemini in this respect, so friendship and shared interests are important. To find love and happiness Venus Aquarius should not follow convention, should look for someone that is extremely clever or extremely different. Venus Aquarius is one of the most detached types of Venus and will not mind it if they are away from their love for weeks at a time. They simply love freedom and tolerate the fact that you like freedom too, and they love you for that fact, because its something you have in common.

Venus in Aquarius has a sparkle in her eyes. She´s actually under the rulership of Saturn while in Aquarius, but it´s not the mean Capricorn Saturn, rather the intellectual Saturn. It means she has to have experience and knowledge in order to find love. It seems counter-intuitive that love can only come through knowledge, but it´s also true that Venus has rulership in an intellectual air sign, where Saturn has his exaltation.

Very, very beautiful: Paris Hilton.
