Venus is Synastry Light and Fluffy coming right up

Venus is astrology is light, it is love, enjoyment, recreation, beauty by aspect in synastry (comparison of 2 charts) it can indicate similar values; for instance Venus in pleasing aspect such as the sextile, trine or conjunct someone else’s Venus; you will appreciate the same leisurely activities, you will probably be on the same page regarding finances and there will be a natural affinity toward one another. I met someone recently, I like them and there is a general feeling of friendship that exists between the two of us. I find it to be an easy connection. There are other factors I’m waiting to kick in like his Saturn in exact square to my Sun and opposite my moon.Textbook indication is he is cold-ish ( I think he is just not as expressive), Saturn is cold and although we have heavy Pluto ties (so very typical of my life) I do get the feeling that I can’t plunge the depths of him emotionally. Then again that isn’t the nature of our connection. No two connections are alike I suppose. Venus can be superficial it isn’t probing like Pluto I never really considered a light kind of love before, ya know love and sex are these transformational experiences for me with Pluto opposite my moon and squaring my sun in the 5th house. There is often that part of me that goes from being extremely light in temperament to very dark; I’m either all in or all out. I recognize the potential for transformation that exists with his Pluto on all of my personal planets and tread lightly knowing my Pluto is squaring his Venus, love and friendship can take a turn for the worse with this aspect but generally I find being with him to be enjoyable. When I leave him I’m often on that rocket ship high, I can’t sleep I’m so infused with positive energy. It is so strange. It is so very different. My plutonic love was the opposite, the dichotomy between light (Venus) and dark (Pluto) fascinates me; upon leaving him I would need to sleep for days. I would often complain I felt heavy and tired. There were often tears and sad music. My moon conjunct his Venus which is a beautiful aspect but not enough to negate all that darkness after all my Pluto conjunct his moon in Libra. Our connection was not normal, I will always look back on him with great sadness and the acknowledgement that our connection changed my life, altered my existence. I respect that, I own it and I like to say for all the craziness: I forgive you but I would never want to relive you. We didn’t fully like each other as people I know that sounds crazy and I often wonder how can you love someone you don’t even like as a person, I guess you can’t so here I’m Venus ahh now that connection is different. People always ask; “I’m the Venus person who feels it more”. I can only tell you my experience I was the Pluto person that had my life turned upside down and now I’m the Venus person; my Venus aspects my male friend’s entire chart. I feel nothing but light toward him, he makes me feel light. I can’t attest to the way he experiences me. I can’t attest to the way Mr. Plutonic Love received me. But I can tell you each energy is special in its own right. Light and Fluffy or Dark and Murky Guess it just depends what you are in the mood for.
Some aspects I’m experiencing with my friend

His Venus is in Cancer, My Sun is in Cancer: General sense of being in sync, simpatico you get one another, supposedly good for shared resources.
My Venus squares his moon; affection and harmony though the moon person may have ties to another woman (he is married so…and yes we are just friends)
My Venus sextiles his Mercury: I love this aspect, we also have sun conjunct mercury and mercury conjunct mercury fabulous for mental connections: General affection, shared dreams, according to Linda Goodman book Relationship Signs the only negative is “exaggerated optimism” oh how very dreadful. Like I said I’m on a rocket ship
Venus sextile Venus
Mutual sympathy, you like the same things, similar interests generally speaking

Venus opposite Uranus;
I try to avoid this in relationships but being we are friends I suppose it doesn’t make a difference. When your Venus opposes someone’s Uranus they often take off and need alone time or need their own space. They leave, to me that is my worst fear. Like where did you go? I have read you will see this in a one night stand the coming together and falling apart. It can also mean the Uranus person brings unusual activities to the Venus person getting them to do things they normally wouldn’t do sexually and otherwise. Something unusual exists there.

Let me know; have you been Venus or Pluto?

Karmic Ties Revisited

Awhile ago I wrote an entry on Karmic Ties that you can read here: http://starsmoonandsun.com/2011/10/13/karmic-ties/

I struggled for quite some time with my connection to someone, a plutonic love. The Phrase “Plutonic Love” stems from heavy Pluto ties in synastry: see pic below.

I kept seeing him; he even booked his honeymoon night at my place of employment. Oh the pain was unbearable! Attempting to figure out the why? Why was this happening? The concepts of free will vs. fate. My obsession with movies such as The Adjustment Bureau.

Ultimately I decided:

Life leads you to a path known as fate and we wield our free will in deciding if we will travel it or not

We chose our own destiny to a certain degree, and sometimes we may be crazy about someone but we don’t see ourselves spending the rest of our life with them or the timing is off or 1 million other reasons. Synastry can tell you how you affect another person, it is the art of looking at your natal chart and another person’s natal chart and examining patterns these patterns do not offer promises of eternal bliss or a happy marriage or even that you will end up together. Life holds no guarantees.

Recently I was bothered by someone; he was sort of getting under my skin. Considering my plutonian nature if it itches I want to get underneath and scratch it, see what that is about. Why? Forever wondering why? I looked at our synastry (this is not a person I date) and I was surprised that we had some lovely aspects (my sun in exact trine to his moon, Venus in one another’s 7th house, moon in 8th and 4th house overlays, we both share the same soul mission with both of our north nodes in the 8th house, his Pluto in exact conjunction my to NN) I’m like what the heck is this? I sent the charts to another astrologer for a 2nd opinion clearly I could see there were issues his Mars Square my Pluto and conjuncts my Sun….. Her reply was: “I’m not sure if you believe in past lives, but you have a lot of karmic connections”. And then I had my ah-ha moment.

Karmic Ties in Synastry indicate you carry past Karma with another human being, that you have lived, fought, loved one another in a previous lifetime. Karmic Ties often involve the moons nodes or when an outer planet Saturn, Uranus, Neptune or Pluto all the way out in the universe touches a personal planet of another’s Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus or Mars.

I had the sudden realization that perhaps the only people that truly affect us in this life are those that we have lived past lifetimes with. Those of us that are seeking transformation in love, substance in life will not attract the superficial bonds that others are drawn too.

Ya know it has been a long time since I saw my plutonic love perhaps about a year. So odd considering there was a time I couldn’t so much as leave my house and go to the gym without seeing him, I like to think that perhaps I wronged him in some previous life or may be earlier in this one and with him having booked his wedding rooms at my hotel, we are even now. Karmic debt has been paid in full. Our connection was dark and murky, after each night with him it took me a week to recover. When an astrologer peeked at my synastry with this other non-datable person she said His Sun conjuncts you’re Saturn and can illuminate your darkness. And just like that I feel like the light turned on

A meeting of the minds Mercury in Synastry

Mercury in a chart indicates how we learn and communicate; my natal Mercury is in Cancer indicating I learn via intuition. I need to feel my way through things; I need to feel people in order to relate to them. I have Mercury conjunct Sun in my natal chart indicating a quick mind, quick speech and a tendency to analyze everything. My Mercury also forms a tight sextile to Mars the planet of action making for the inability to stop thinking. I don’t believe my mind ever shuts off; I’m convinced even in a state of REM it is busy planning, deciding and going!

I don’t think Mercury gets much play when examining synastry, it doesn’t shoot off fireworks like a Mars and Venus conjunction, it doesn’t uproot your entire soul like Pluto on the moon, it won’t have you seeing stars like Neptune on another’s Venus, but Mercury is important! It is the manner in which we communicate; the aspects that Mercury makes can give insight into a couple’s ability to communicate.

True Story: I once had a date with someone, I don’t recall his sign but I used an app to get our compatibility rating and it was a horrendous 8% yes out of 100%, I went on the date any way obviously we all have free will and I don’t believe in astrology dictating your entire existence. In short the date felt like 8%, it was awful. The astrology app had mentioned that we would interrupt each other often. The entire date we were trying to speak at the same time, it was annoying to say the least. It was essentially impossible to get through one dinner. This was awhile ago so I do not recall the exact aspect, but mercury was 100% involved, it is how we communicate, learn and share ideas.

Today I was speaking to someone, a person very different than me. Some may even say my complete opposite but he was sharing his opinions and I thought Hmm this is interesting, maybe he is sort of right, Not that I will ever admit this to him or anyone else other then you fabulous readers but when we were finished speaking I thought I’m open to doing things differently. His Saturn is on my Mercury, ya know this indicates Maturing of the mind. My Saturn conjuncts his sun so the lessons he needs to learn are of the ego variety. We are all learning, growing, each person we meet transforms us in one way or another no matter how big or small.

In any event I skimmed my mental rolodex reviewing some people I have spent time with, shuddering at the reality that I have actually had entire relationships with people I cannot recall having had one deep, intense or even contemplative conversation with. How it this even possible?

I continued to scan the Ex-Files in my mind and simply had to look up some ones birth chart from a 100 lifetimes ago, someone I still dream about on that very rare occasion, someone; the first man really that appealed to my mind-he was hot as well- but till this day I never enjoyed speaking with anyone as much. And what do you know his Mercury conjuncts my Mercury in exact degree and only adding to this is the 9th house overlay that is activated. I use to hang on his every word…it was a true meeting of the minds.

“There are all kinds of love in this world, but never the same love twice.” F. Scott Fitzgerald

 

As we live life we meet many people some and each person affects us differently. I think the best way to put it is:

Where ever your heart goes take your mind with you

Nice Mercury Aspects make for easier communication and basic understanding and what relationship doesn’t need that!

Mercury in Pleasing aspect (Trine, Sextile, sometimes Conjunction) to the :

Sun indicates natural understanding of ego concerns and identity, you get where the other is coming from

Moon ruling emotions and Mercury on the moon can feel at home speaking with one another, there is however a danger in emotions clouding your rational sense.

Mercury and Mercury as I explained is a meeting of the minds! How nice

Jupiter promotes good thoughts, expansion and awareness. Jupiter essentially, good wills jovial conversations.

Saturn in relation to Mercury: level headed, responsible, learning Saturn is there to teach

Uranus In relation to Mercury: Upbeat, lively, futuristic, open-minded conversations Uranus is there to awaken

Neptune in relation to Mercury: telepathy Oh goodness these connections can get muddled. Confirm what you are thinking psychically verbally sharing music together and anything artistic is indicated

Pluto in relation to mercury: Deep analysis, life changing conversations Pluto wants to transform the thought process

Love Free Will and Astrology


I once told a friend if this man doesn’t have some sort of deep feeling for me than I know nothing in this life (his moon in perfect conjunction to my Pluto). Evidently when it came to him I new nothing! And now I’m unsure of what I know anymore, unsure of what I believe. Having reached the conclusion he would have never picked me. Not in this life or any other. There was a time I happily checked off all of our connections; vertex conjunct the angles (fated), our Moon, Venus and Jupiter in one another 7th house. Foolishly entering our birthdates into www.moonit.com. Happily seeing a 96% compatibility. How can this not be, I blinked back tear-filled eyes while speaking to a friend. “Oh honey you forgot about free will and well uh love doesn’t exist in a bubble”.
Perhaps in an honest moment with myself I knew we could never coexist, after all I didn’t want any part of his life I only wanted him. While he oozed conservatism and the desire to have a country kitchen somewhere in the suburbs, I was a radical liberal with a penchant for late nights, a member of PETA that believes in Gay Marriage and the legalization of Marijuana (his sun and mercury opposition to my Uranus). Ha! But when it was just the two of us, just us together; he felt like home to me (his moon trine my Venus) like a puffy cloud (my moon trine his Neptune). And I was all too content to linger in that beautifully crafted snow globe for awhile.
Oh my cancer sun and my heart ache just a bit. As a Cancer I feel my way through life. This is my identity. I decide if I like people in a minute of meeting them, I pick up on non verbal cues, I read what isn’t being said, I asess body language, I look for sincerity in an individual’s eyes. I don’t sort out facts, I suck at math there isn’t a logical bone in my body. Misreading everything has taken on a toll on my being. I’m a hopeless romantic, I believe in true love, the glass slipper and happily ever after.
My whole existence is centered around the quest for true love (cancer sun in the 5th house of romance). I would have given up a lot. Love is my life. I blatantly ignored his sun and moon in the 6th and 10th house of career and reputation. Major eye roll! This may never have done, that is where our differences lie. Perhaps synastry can only tell you how 2 people feel in a vacuum, it can give you the wonderful interactions between two individuals, the rough spots, but I think the key is before rushing into looking at interaspects is to review each natal chart independently. Where does this person derive joy from, where is their heart? What brings them pleasure? What is their focus?
Today someone asked me how much emphasis I put on synastry aspects. Had you asked me a short time ago I would have said 100% now my advice is Always look at their natal chart to see what they want out of life because even with high compatibility it may not be you.

House overlays in Synastry

House Overlays in Synastry are often over looked, they occur when your natal chart is superimposed on another individual’s natal chart.
Every person you come in contact with gets a different part of you; you are not all things to everyone. Where your planets fall in another’s house activates a particular area of their life. I have attached a copy for your reference and to use as an example, a website www.groupovenus.com has many free astrological reports and is easy to use for beginners. I do not want to interpret these 2 charts in entirety, but so it is easy for you to identify how this works I will give you the major points.
The Sun: Where the Sun lands is a major Focal Point of Your relationship.
For instance you can see my Sun in the 5th house falls into Subject B 8th house. This means my Sun will be a beacon of light on psychological issues. Remember the 8th house is the house of death, psychoanalysis, sex and shared resources. Without a doubt sun in the 8th house screams sexy time! A desire to acquire joint property and possessions, but the most profound aspect will affect Subject B’s psyche. My sun activates these parts of that individual. Where your sun lands in another person’s chart will be a driving force for the relationship. A focal point. In turn Subject B Sun in his 6th house lands in my 2nd house. Remember 2nd house is the house of security both financial and non tangible and all things you value. In his presence I would feel secure and possibly seek financial guidance from him, values what “we” value will be a reoccurring theme.
The Moon: Look at where the moon falls to see where your heart is, your feelings, your subconscious drives.
My moon is natal in my 2nd house and falls in Subject B 5th house (the house of romance, children, music & all things fun) this indicates Subject B will enjoy spending time with me. I activate their desire to have fun, whether perusing hobbies together, going to concerts, being that this is also a romance house and all things pleasurable the emotional connection is fluid and flows easily
While my moon falls in Subjects B 5th house of romance his moon falls in my 7th house. 7th house rules serious partnerships (unlike the 5th which rules romance). This indicates I would want to share feelings with him it gives me a strong feeling that we “belong together”. Feelings are the general theme. (side note: we have other placements in 7th house however if you activate some ones 5th house ONLY and they activate your 7th house, there is a danger that they see you as a casual romantic encounter, where as you see them a life partner).
Mercury: rules communication and short trips see what your partner enjoys speaking to you about.
For Example
Subject A mercury falls in Subject B 6th house of daily activities (YAWN) this indicates Subject B will enjoy speaking to Subject A about work and the day to day grind.
Subject B mercury falls in Subject A 7th house of partnerships Subject A will enjoy speaking about there relationship. They will take an analytical approach to it not an emotional one.
Subject A Mercury falls in Subject B 8th house indicates Subject B will feel inclined too tell Subject A there secrets, there is a deep probing nature to there conversations
Venus the planet of love along with the moon the planet of emotions are very important in house over lays. Look to see where your Venus falls in some ones chart and Vice Versa to see where you will find love and beauty in that person.
For Example
Subject A Venus falls in Subject B 7th house of Partnerships Subject B will naturally care for subject A and see them as a natural compliment
Subject B Venus falls in Subject A 6th house of daily activities; oh no no daily activities will be the focus. Love is not a high priority as with a 5th house placement or a 7th house.
Mars is the planet of sex drive and aggression. Mars can help you get things done but it can also show where you will be argumentative. I hate to see Mars falling in someone’s 4th house of home or 8t house of shared resources lots of arguments over money!
Look to see where Jupiter falls in someone’s house and where there Jupiter falls in yours to see where you will bring one another good luck!
Saturn indicates where you will be restricted. Saturn in 7th house or 1st house RUN! Your relationship will have trouble getting off the ground and will leave you feeling restricted as a person. Saturn in the 11th house, the house of hopes and wishes will restrict your dreams. Ewww!
Neptune will show where you aren’t seeing things clearly. If it’s in your 2nd house of values you will have issues with finances, you will not see them clearly. In 3rd house of communication, you will not understand one another. In the 7th you can think your relationship is going wonderful when it isn’t.
Look to Uranus to see where this person will bring unexpected changes and surprises. You 100% do not want this in your 4th house (the house of home and roots) or 7th house of partnerships.
Pluto in a house shows what outlets and how this person will transform you
