I recently did a reading for someone that is on her third marriage prior to her 1st Saturn return. This means she has been married 3 times prior to turning 30. This is amazing to me. Like I haven’t found one person that I believe I want to share FOREVER with. I mean forever is a long time and somehow she has found 3 people. Ha-ha In any event it brought up the fact that I often feel behind, like I’m late to do everything. I have Mars in Taurus, recently I read Mars being the planet of war doesn’t fair well in the sign of love, Taurus being rules by the planet Venus. Taurus is indeed the slowest of the earth signs so I tend to take the long route. However once I make my mind up to do something (Mars represents action) it is with precision and determination. This can be reflected in going back to college at 25 or not moving out of my parental home till 35. However I graduated with a 4.0 and when I did move out I dig purchase my dream apartment. Taurus doesn’t do things ½ ass. I often feel I’m behind and in a way I’m slow to mature. I honestly do not know if I will ever consider myself mature. Maturity is not to be confused with responsible. I’m very responsible but mature uh not so much.
I went to psychic once; she knew nothing about astrology and said to me “you have the mind of someone that is 100 but the emotional maturity of an adolescent”. She was right, I concede. I have an Aries moon, planets placed in Aries are the least evolved, Aries is the 1st sign in the zodiac, it is where we begin. Impulsive and yes immature, we can act out and throw tantrums. Planets placed in Aries lack maturity, they confuse wants with needs and have a sense of urgency with just about everything. (I think this stems from emotional needs not being met during childhood). I also have the Sun placed in the 5th house; the 5th house represents children and first loves. I’m forever child like, I want to play and have fun. My heart is eternally youthful; they say people with a 5th house sun will have 1 or no children. I never quite understood that, perhaps due to the maturity that is required to raise children, the strength and patience (God knows an Aries moon doesn’t have any of the above). Katie Holmes has this placement, I often wonder if Suri will be her one and only. I also have a retrograde chart ruler. My rising sign is Aquarius, planets in Aquarius are not bound by time constraints, they do not carry a 5 year plan. I always feel that there is an infinite amount of time to do certain things. I do not conform to 5 year plans and the only time that I feel behind are in those moments I compare my life to the lives of others. I consciously have been trying to not compare my life to other people because truth be told; on the outside looking in there isn’t another person’s life I would truly want to live other then my own. With Aquarius as my rising sign this makes Uranus my chart ruler, Uranus is in retrograde motion indicating I take the long route. Add to this the fact that Uranus is the rebel of the zodiac… not exactly the most settled of the signs. Combined with my Grand fire trine involving my 10th house of career, 2nd house of finances and 6th house of daily activity in typical fire fashion I just want to go go go!
Lastly I have a unaspected Venus in Gemini; Gemini rules the 3rd house of childhood education and grammar school. Gemini is a playful sign that is the magician of the zodiac, Gemini drinks out of the fountain of youth daily! All of that fire combined with a 5th house Sun, a retrograde chart ruler, a Moon in Aries and a Venus in Gemini no wonder I’m taking the long route. I’m smelling the flowers, skipping along taking the occasional detour while a lot of other people are on that 5 year plan. Secretly I have to pay thanks to my one earth planet Mars in Taurus, Taurus craves financial security, is fiscally responsible and perhaps it gives me solid footing to plant all my lofty and fiery dreams upon.
Dependable risk takers.. I believe this in itself is an oxymoron. Recently I read someones chart that wanted to know what kind of woman he should date, his chart lacked consistency; though I believe I decided on an water sign. It’s so hard putting all of ourselves together. I should know I have Leo on the 7th house cusp:Calling all dominant males but wait my Sun is in the 5th house giving me Leo traits; damn it I want to be dominant too. Then my sun is in Cancer, love me I’m fragile easily wounded and cry during thunderstorms then again my moon is in Aries, your cute but I have to go find someone that will take me to new places & well we have already been to Buddakan twice. Sun square Moon: my wants (the sun) and my needs (the moon) are not aligned. Nurture me, baby me but fuck sleep on your own side of the bed. Then we have Venus in Gemini & god awful Mars in Taurus; Gemini is the quickest moving sign in the zodiac & Taurus is the slowest. Venus in a woman’s chart tells how she gives love. I’ve said before ill write you a letter, pen you a poem, sing you a song. ( In a mans chart look at Venus to see that type of woman he likes). I crave long intellectual conversations, preferably deep in nature (venus trine pluto) my cancer sun wants to nest at home, my Aries moon longs to jetset around the globe, my 7th house cusp wants a strobe light loving super star for a partner & my mars in Taurus wants the slowest sign in the zodiac. Uh? The way i express love is quick flirty on the move but how i want to receive love is slow going & dependable. Mars in a woman’s chart indicates the kind of man she is attracted to and what turns her on sexually; mars in Taurus seeks a stable & financially secure partner that offers bubble baths & kisses that last for hours. So if you see a financially stable man that isn’t a bore who enjoys going out to different places often, will be the center of attention with out ever flirting, play hero to my every whim in a New York City minute and treat me to chocolate covered strawberries & champagne bubble baths while whispering sweet somethings in my ear please give him my number I’ve been looking for him for months! Thanks!
Venus leaves fun loving Gemini and enters mother earth, Cancer on August 8th. Venus is considered a benefic planet; ruled by Taurus and Libra it oversees beauty and money. Venus is how we express and receive amore. Where it is placed in your chart along with Greater Benefic Jupiter you will be bestowed blessings. My Venus is actually in 1 degree of Gemini, indicating it just entered the sign of the twins; it is placed in my 3rd house of communication and learning. I would say I have a gift for writing as well as a broad vocabulary. The other day I heard someone say the word “yous” I thought my ears were about to fall off. Sort of like you two or the two of you but with a Joe Pesci/ My Cousin Vinny Spin. Venus in Gemini declares send me a text write me a letter, tell me you love me! I would imagine fictional character Carrie Bradshaw had a Venus in Gemini. The endless talking, the laptop, the writing, and quick wit.
My exboyfriend, a Leo of all things once quipped: if we aren’t doing something you aren’t happy. Venus in Gemini wants to stroll through the park, take a mini vacation (Gemini rules short distance travel), go to the museum (Gemini is the sign of thought) lets go shopping (Gemini can be sort of superficial). Bottom Line is Venus in Gemini wants to go go go!
But Venus in Cancer ruler of the 4th house of home yearns to nest. They want to sit by the fire place, toast marshmallows and listen to light music surrounded by candle light. Home is essential to those with Venus in Cancer, beautiful surroundings perhaps antique décor. They are slow and cautious in love; Venus in Gemini loves with the mind where as Venus in Cancer finds love with the heart. Make no mistake about it Venus in Cancer people can be clingy possessive and demand nothing short of 100% devotion. They need to be reminded you love them often, they need to feel secure, safe both financially and physically. “I feel” are Cancers keywords. Similar to the sun sign Venus in Cancer is easily wounded and hide their soft inners beneath a tough crab like exterior. Ruled by the moon Venus in Cancer individuals may experience ups and downs in love and finances, Cancer puts forth its whole self when entering into partnership and it is often hard to equate the magnitude of that type of love.
If you find someone and their Venus is in Cancer treat them like paper mache, light, gentle, make them feel safe. Tell them often you love them; keep a first aid kit on hand as they are easily wounded. And in return they will lavish you with home cooked meals and bubble baths. With Venus in Cancer you will find a devoted and dutiful partner. Just be sure you hold up your end of the bargain Cancer has one of the finest memories in the Zodiac and Crabs have been known to pinch when they feel threatened.
