Mars in Cancer

I burst out laughing when I read Horary Astrology by Derek Applyby “Penis (heat) Development Cream, made by the House of Pan. Now then, I’ll bet you never thought of that interpretation for Mars in Cancer in the fifth, did you!”

LOL, now I would never have thought of penile cream as Mars in Cancer! But if you think of it, what else would it be symbolised by?!

Chart Ruler in 5th

A client had his chart ruler, Saturn, in the 5th. He’s a teacher for young kids. He’s big time into partying and into sex. Oh, his Moon is on the cusp of the 5th house too, which certainly emphasizes 5th house themes. He’s certainly very expressive based on the words used by him – for example, I’m HORNY!!!!! (yes, he used five exclamations and spelt the word in caps).

I find it incredible that astrology can be so explicit. LOL

The Danish Girl – A Look at Lili

I watched the movie “The Danish Girl” (2005) just now. It’s a difficult movie to watch as my world views are challenged and the movie forced me to think through them. For those who have not heard of the movie, it’s about a male and female artist who were married. The husband named Einar / Lili came out as a transgender woman to the wife named Gerda who supported her throughout her journey and transition to a woman.Read More »

What do Venus & Mars Represent in Straight/LBGT Charts?

I have always found the role of Venus and Mars in heterosexual and homosexual men and women confusing. What follows are my thoughts on the subject which is a work in progress.

Amongst many things, Venus and Mars represent the femininity and the masculinity principle respectively. The key is to know:

  • the principle a person identify herself/himself with; and
  • the principle the person identifies for and attaches to the partner/sexual interest.

FOR WOMEN

Most women, whether straight or gay, identify with the femininity principle within them i.e. Venus. Venus represents how they see themselves as a woman, how womanly they feel. It represents their womanhood in essence. Thus when we would like to explore how they express their femininity including their sexual preferences, we look at their Venus to do that. However, there might be “more masculine” lesbians or straight women who identifies themselves stronger with the Mars in their chart. Then, we would look at their Mars for their sexual preferences.

For straight women, we would look at their Mars to appreciate the type of men that turns them on. That is unless the straight gal assigns Venus to her man. Conversely for gay women, we would look at either Venus or Mars to understand the type of women that excites them, depending on the principle that the person identifies for and attaches to them.

FOR MEN

The above reasoning is applied to men  as well:

Most men, whether straight or gay, identify with the masculinity principle within them i.e. Mars. Mars represents how they see themselves as a man, how manly they feel. It represents their manhood in essence. Thus when we would like to explore how they express their masculinity including their sexual preferences, we look at their Mars to do that. However, there might be “more feminine” gays or straight men who identifies strongly with the Venus in their chart. Then, we would look at their Venus for their sexual preferences.

For straight men, we would look at their Venus to appreciate the type of Venus that turns them on. That is unless the straight dude assigns Mars to her woman. Conversely for gay men, we would look at either Mars or Venus to understand the type of men that excites them, depending on the principle that the person identifies for and attaches to them.

What about transgender folks? Again, I think it’s the principle that they identify with and assign to others. For the genderless folks, I think you would consider both Venus and Mars as it seems that they are equally balanced in the Yin and Yang side of things.

 

 

Shall I Break Up With Her?

Senor Patisserie said that he’s thinking of breaking up with his girlfriend, Madame Avoca. He doesn’t know where this relationship is heading to and because of his previous divorce, he’s shy of relationships. [he has a Venus-Saturn aspect natally which can translate into a desire for definition and clarity in a relationship a.k.a. he wants to know definitively whether they will live happily ever after. If not, he wants to cut the losses now. The aspect could also translate to a fear of love/relationships because of past experiences]. Read More »
