Scarlett Johansson. Sun in Sag. Venus-Jupiter conjunction in Cap
Venus is a about money and love and beauty. Her natal placement tells us about all those things. It tells us about how we love, what we love and what makes us loveable. Venus is also about seduction. How we are attractive, whom we attract and what we find attractive. It’s about how good – or lousy – we are with cash. It’s about taste, and art.
That is a whole lot of (often contradictory) stuff. Astrology is a complex web of ideas, and it’s the job of an astrologer to unpick those ideas, choose the right threads and weave them back together again.
A person’s appearance is dictated by a whole host of factors in the chart, especially the Rising sign, the placement of the ruling planet and the Sun sign. Planets on the ascendant are important too.
But I’m interested in what Venus, in her role as the planet of beauty, means in each sign. Looking at these women’s faces, it does strike me that Capricorn’s ruler Saturn is the king of bones and bone structure.
Here are some more high-cheekboned Hollywood queens. There’s a strong jawline there too. It’s interesting to ponder the differences between the Suns by element. For example, the Sadges are fierier: Scarlett is actually called Scarlett, Julianne Moore is a redhead, and Daryl Hannah and Lucy Liu both tremendously athletic.
Faye Dunaway. Capricorn Sun. “Once I’ve been crossed, I’m not very conciliatory.”
Julianne Moore. Sag Sun
Gene Tierney. Scorpio Sun.
High-kicking Lucy Liu. Sag Sun.
Darryl Hannah. Sun Sag
Greta Scacchi. Aquarius Sun.
Holly Marie Combs. Sagittarius Sun.
There are quite a few child stars with Venus in Capricorn — including Combs, Miley Cyrus and Britney Spears. One of the stories that Capricorn tells is of early success, another is of success delayed, of course. As Leslee pointed out in the previous comments, Capricorn is said to look old when young and young when old.
Miley Cyrus. Sag Sun – needs no comment.
Although the supermodel Venus is certainly in Aquarius, there are two outstanding ex-models with this placement.
Tyra Banks: brainy and ambitious as well as beautiful. Sag Sun: note the hands
Cindy Crawford. Pisces Sun.
The last picture in the previous post was of Elijah Wood as the Hobbit, and there does seem to be a pixy look that crops up for Venus in Capricorn women too.
Diane Keaton then. Capricorn Sun.
French superchanteusie Edith Piaf was tiny. Sag Sun.
Another tiny woman with a big voice, Björk. Scorpio, Scorpio, Scorpio.
And another one: Elisabeth Schwarzkopf, opera diva. Sag Sun.
And the other great mid-20th century diva, Maria Callas. Also a Sag Sun.
Finally, here is literary diva Toni Morrison, so grand in old age.
