Venus in Pisces: Dirty Sweet

Monday January 16th 2017

Those of you following this Venus in… series will know already that Venus is not entirely about how you look. For that we look at the Ascendant and planets aspecting it. Venus though can tell us what makes you attractive, or even what makes you beautiful.

So it’s pretty interesting that the first three names that came up on my database when I typed in Venus in Pisces were: Michelle Obama, Jesus Christ and Martin Luther King. Presumably we can discount Jesus, since last I knew there was some controversy over his exact birthdate, so the next one down is Kurt Cobain. Aside from FLOTUS, that’s three men who were sacrificed.

Venus in Pisces… universal love, boundless love… Venus is said to be exalted in Pisces, the sign of sacrifice and victimhood.

But Pisces is also mutable sign — and there’s quite a bit of variety here. It’s a sign as changeable as wind on water and its impossible to pin down an exact look here, but there is a feel of emotional power that is very seductive.

And now a whole lot of blue eyes.

You don’t have to have the blue eyes though. But there is something about being a little kooky — and the blue eyes.

… How about some dirty-sexy men?

Serge Gainsbourg

Serge Gainsbourg. Pisces Sun. Although… he may exemplify one of the dangers of Venus in Pisces since he turned into an ordinary dirty old man.

Perhaps the ultimate Venus in Pisces character is Tess of the D’Urbervilles, the beautiful innocent, corrupted by society, who is eventually sacrificed. Interestingly, Thomas Hardy, who wrote Tess, had Uranus at 20° Pisces — exactly on Nastassja Kinski’s Venus. She will always be associated with this role.

    Thank you. I needed to take a break from all the horror. I wanted to comment that, although Michelle Obama has not (and hopefully will never be) physically sacrificed like Jesus, MLK, and Kurt Cobain, she has sacrificed her personal wishes in service to the United States. It was never her ambition to be First Lady, but she supported her husband in his ambition to be President. Along the way, she became one of the most magnificent First Ladies we have ever had.

    Lots of interesting people here. This Pisces Sun has long been a fan of Ewan McGregor, among my favorites.

      Unfortunately, Michelle has been (and still is) being crucified via nasty tweets, denigrating comments on blog and news posts, and the occasional governmental emails sent to fellow employees that end-up on Facebook. I can’t recall any other First Lady that has received such extreme criticism, which is indicative of our misogynist and racially divided USA. She’s an Ivy-league lawyer that was “co-president”! I’ll truly miss Michelle and her side-kick Obama.

        Ignore the hate. There’s something about Michelle Obama that haters can’t reach, they look pathetic instead, shooting their blunt arrows at her. Their bullying is backfiring, as always happens with bullying. All they’re revealing is their white supremacy xenophobia. The world is disgusted. No rational American wants to be associated with people like that, so haters are painting themselves into a corner, eventually to be roundly rejected, along with their weird orangey leader. We await the day.

        They will be missed…went to look and her Venus applies to his Chiron and makes a trine to his cancer Venus. Sweet!

    Beautifully said Vesta.

    Ha, Anais Nin, I was divinely taken to purchase a second hand, hard cover of her writings ‘ DeLta of Venus’ today!

    does Zooey Deschanel have some gemini? she has a pisces/gemini vibe. wouldn’t have guessed the Cap sun. That pic of Diana Ross is gorgeous!

    • Christina says:

      I know, you’d think that — right. But guess what! She has a Moon, Sun and ASC in Capricorn, nothing in Gemini.

      HOWEVER — Mercury on the ASC exact to the degree and almost to the minute. She is totally channelling Mercury (ruler of Gemini). So that must be what you’re seeing…

      And I think you might be seeing that mischievous Mercurial spirit in her stellium in Virgo: Lilith, Jupiter, Saturn and Mars.
