Aries & Taurus: Perfect Complements?

Overview Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet of love. Aries is ruled by Mars, the planet of sexuality. Merge them and you get a complete romantic package: tender devotion plus hot, hot passion. The Good Taurus and Aries offer each other a balance. Taurus is cautious and slow to act; Aries charges ahead without hesitation. Taurus is practical; Aries is rash. Taurus is scared of getting hurt; Aries gets bruised and keeps it moving. When they get together, they force each other to meet in the middle, and both are better, more well rounded individuals for it. They admire the differences in the other and prove the adage that “opposites attract.” While the differences in nature can create some tension, this can be turned in positive, productive stress that encourages new ways of thinking and compromise. Taurus is a home body. Aries likes to go out and paint the town crimson. Dates should be two-fold to appease both: a daredevil night out, followed by snuggling safely in the...

Sonny detonates Cher: the Pent-Up Energy of Intercepted Houses, Trapped Signs

Sonny detonates Cher: the Pent-Up Energy of Intercepted Houses, Trapped Signs

Like Cher, Ayn Rand, & Oprah, I have a pair of interlopers in my chart. Interloping signs — ones that invade territories ruled by others signs with an attempt to hijack them. I confess I have a special love for these  signs and the desperate desires to which they drive me. Astrologically & formally speaking, I’m referring to intercepted signs, signs that are not on the cusp of a house and have no house of their own to rule. Instead they begin and end in a house ruled by the previous sign. The belief in astrology is that the energy of such signs is very hard to access because the lack of a cusp is like the lack of a doorway to the sign. They occur in opposing pairs: Cancer-Capricorn, Libra-Aries, etc. Look at your chart and see if you have a sign squashed completely inside of one house with no cusp of its own to rule. It will be very important to you. And will greatly define your...

Venus Bites Neptune: the Romanticizing of Pain & Suffering

Venus Bites Neptune: the Romanticizing of Pain & Suffering

Some lovers find pain fascinating, a bit sacred and even beautiful in romance and sexuality. Such people — like former erotic cutter Angelina Jolie, the original masochist Leopold von Sacher Masoch, the ear-slicing Vincent Van Gogh, and myself — have strong Venus-Neptune aspects. Any art with struggle, loss, tragedy and intense pain — whether emotional or physical in texture — I am drawn to. My best romances have been tragic. It seems like that which is beautiful is made overwhelmingly so by the contrast of pain. Can one know light without dark? Painless people would be repulsed by this. Heretics! They do not understand. I believe the strong mesh of Venus energy — which is romantic and idealistic– with Neptune, Pisces, or the 12th House, which deals in self-sacrifice, self-destruction, loss, and suffering, can lay a foundation for the native to not only enjoy, but idealize and romanticize pain. Such Neptunian people see the beauty in pain, the way others cannot, particularly if they have exacerbating factors affecting this...

Neptune Trine Mercury: Why is it so easy to Fool Oprah?

(Originally written in December 2008) The phone rings. A woman answers. Me: Hello? Oprah? I was wondering if you wanted to buy a slightly used alien from Zobitron that I’ve been keeping in my Scorpio sex dungeon for three years. Yes. He’s amazing. He is the next generation in boyfriends — way better than Stedman. And he has an extra appendage — Hello? You’re sending Gayle over with the $3 million. Thanks! Once again, news has broken that Oprah endorsed another fabricated story as part of her Book Club. She has no Earth planets, which can make one a little detached from concrete reality … even making them a little, dare I say, gullible. But besides lacking Earth, Oprah has her Neptune trine an Aquarius Mercury. Having this short-circuit between the mind and imagination can be fabulous, making one creative and artistic. But delusions can travel that circuit, casting a veil over thoughts. Mixed that with Oprah’s Sagittarius Moon and you have a personality who’s so passionately optimistic they...

The 12 Zodiac Philosophies of Love (Part 1 of 4)

The 12 Zodiac Philosophies of Love (Part 1 of 4)

Love is as varied as the drives of the sun signs, with each sign representing an ethos that creates its own philosophy of love. Life can not truly be complete and fulfilling unless we fuse all 12 types of love. For today, here’s a look at Platonic love, Camaradie, and the Impossible romantic Ideal. 1. Aquarius = Platonic Love. Scorpios typically rank romantic and erotic love as the ultimate amour. Not all signs agree with this. Aquarius, which values the love of friends much more,  is one of them. Romantic love is a fairly modern notion.  The ideal among ancient Greeks, who are the architects of Western philosophy,  was the Aquarian construct of Platonic Love. For the Aquarius, Amor Platonicus, is the reason for being. They’d easily rank it above sexual love or romance, which as detached air signs they don’t completely comprehend. The whole conflagration of flesh and emotion is often a foreign phenomenon for them. And even with a strong water moon or 8th house they may...

Palin, Hilton, Fawcett: Ditzy or Simply Aquarius?

Palin, Hilton, Fawcett: Ditzy or Simply Aquarius?

(Originally written December 2008) Individuals born under the sign Aquarius are ruled by two planets: the stern, pragmatic Saturn and the capricious, eccentric Uranus. Unfailingly, one planet will make its stamp more pronounced. In Saturnine Aquarius women such as Oprah Winfrey or Ayn Rand, Saturn allows them to be perceived as intellectually stimulating and insightful. But for the more scatter-minded Uranian Aquarius, reception is as unpredictable as the sign itself. If you’re a man, like Ashton Kutcher, the spaciness is seen as adorably goofy. However, if you’re a woman, the mentally esoteric ways of Aquarius may be misperceived as dumb or ditzy. Take Sarah Palin or Paris Hilton or Farrah Fawcett for example. Palin’s Uranic aura cast a spell over America, making her unique folksy style of communication and her charm gosh darn lovable while she campaigned as a vice-presidential candidate. But that same energy that made her accessible and globally popular, also made her seem naive, stupid, and grossly unprepared by those who misunderstood her Aquarius predilections. When...

Rihanna: A temptress caught in the tempest between Uranus & Mars

Rihanna: A temptress caught in the tempest between Uranus & Mars

Note: I originally had this piece published on Sasstrology.com (Written December 2008)   I like when the video credits come up and Rihanna rolls across the screen with the body consciousness and sensual grace of a …. stealth hunter — half woman, have primal animal. There is something about the way this Sag Mars moves and connects with her video screen subjects that captivates me — whether she’s stalking Adam Levine, in their “If I never See Your Face Again” collabo or straddling Justin Timberlake in the current “Rehab” video. Playful. Lots of attitude. Electric. And in the case of “Disturbia,” I thought I was being put under a voodoo spell. And yet I remember being BORED by Rihanna’s Beyonce impression when she came on the scene years ago. Def Jam, then headed by Beyonce’s boyfriend Jay Z, seemed to shape Rihanna into the mold of the moment. Silly boys, never do that to a Uranus-Mars girl — especially if her moon & Venus (arts energy) are in Aries. At...
