#1 AstroPop Profile: Saggittarius Queens

In this series, we explore how popular musicians reflect their Astrological roots. We break down lyrics, videos and style to show the signs working on the collective front of pop culture. Warning: Stereotypes allowed. 

The Sagittarius girl is born to dominate and succeed in the music business. Her main virtue is her dramatic flair and storytelling. Her creative heart fuels a dramatic image reflected in her bold style choices.  She seems to be working from an emotional core: Stories of love, revenge, and victory. Yet Sagittarius is not emotional by nature, he is simply a good storyteller, a dramatic teacher who wishes to speak to the mob. The Sagittarius girl is an actress who enjoys weaving popular mentality at her commend. She is naturally gifted at breaking up complicated into simple and warping it in an attractive cover. Sagittarius rules traditional Jupiter and as such the girls like to ring out something from the past in their creations and style.

No matter how sad the song, there is something powerful about the Sagittarius girl’s strength to always bounce back. It is not luck but optimism and a strong value system that allows the queen to always be victorious. The self-esteem is usually strong, they are confident and will stand their ground.

The Sagittarius queen is loved by the masses for how accessible she is. Her lyrics are rarely complicated but always delivered with such a dramatic flair – you believe her. Sagittarius rules publishing and this gives the Sagittarius girl a secret business talent. She knows what the people love and hate and she is willing to play. Jupiter rules expansion and these artists all show how harmless drama can get out of hand. The willingness to expand allows the singers to change their images. Usually in bold ways, from pure to dirty, sweet to angry, virgin and whore. Jupiter likes things to be big, bold and loud. Co-Ruled by Pisces there is an element of fantasy and mystery to all Jupiter creations, combined with the ability to take what the public believes in and throw in their face. In pop culture, the Sagittarius may take the seediest hedonistic elements of the collective such as extreme sexuality and greed. Sagittarius likes to sing about money and possessions. It equally likes to sing about love, and it will shout about it from the rooftops. It is not a subtle kind of song. Sagittarius usually thinks they are right but are redeemed by their generosity towards others. “High” Sagittarius songs deal with ideas about a better society, a better relationship and a better love. “Low” Sagittarius songs deal with hedonism, money, and sex. Many artists move between the two and play around with various ideas and images. Remember when Christian Aguilera came out with “Dirty”? They enjoy shocking people on moral grounds.

I hope next time you hear a song by a Sagittarius you will notice this come through.

Strength: Songwriting and storytelling with voice and acting, bold and brave

Weakness: Can exaggerate and become caricatures of themselves (cringe)

The sexy:  Playing a character, at heart wild and sporty

Style: Vintage fairy tales, Baroque

Examples: Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, Billie Eilish, Nicki Minaj, Britney Spears, Amy Lee, Christina Aguilera

Queen Earth: Taylor Swift

Blank-Space-main-467

Taylor Swift is known for her simple catchy beats and lyrics. She cultivates a style that leans heavily on American culture. Her bold red lips speak of pin girls and yet she is the girl next door. She is retro yet she is fresh. She has been accused of using her personal romances as fuel for her popular songs. She is a songwriter that writes about heartbreak and revenge. She is very much dramatic in every sense from her movement on stage to her facial expressions. Her music videos showcase over the top stories of collective fairy tales.

I give her the Earth Element because of the strong presence of Saturn and Capricorn in her Natal Chart. Earth would give the type of S stories and the style she tells them in a more vintage and traditional feel. Think Romeo and Juliette. Appropriately her popular album was titled  Fearless and don’t forget the characters she likes to play in her videos. Sagittarius can always use some Saturn to give him the ability to hold its horses and not over gamble in life. Swift is a good example of business sense that feels the tides of trends as they come and go. Her Cancer Moon helps her connect to the primitive emotional strings of her audience. Cancer is the baby, the childhood dream but it can bite when hurt.

Lyrics: Now I’m standing alone in a crowded room and we’re not speaking,
And I’m dying to know is it killing you like it’s killing me, yeah?
I don’t know what to say, since the twist of fate when it all broke down,
And the story of us looks a lot like a tragedy now. – The Story of Us

Queen Air: Billie Elish BillieBellyache2.1web.jpg

This artist is new but is a great example of Sagittarius at its finest.  A very young 18-year-old but there is a lot of wisdom in her delivery. Her strength again appears in her storytelling and the way her voice shifts to accommodate every word with meaning. She is a pure actress; rebellious teen is her Sagittarius role.  Notice how she tells the story of murdering her cheating boyfriend in the song Bellyache, it is all about her delivery. The lyrics themselves are very simple.

Like Swift, she is a triumphant victim in a different style. Speaking of different, Eilish has Uranus, the planet for all that is alternative, innovative and rebellious on her side. Therefore, I think Air is her element. Sagittarius with a strong Aquarius emphasis is generally great at developing a unique style and voice.  In female charts especially, a rejection of gender roles is common. The Sagittarius girl is by nature a tomboy. The art such a mix produces tends to concern itself with what is right and wrong in relationships between humans. Uranus and Jupiter both care a great deal about finding the right dogma to fit their worldview. Using some shock value is a common way for them to make other people think and find the freedom to express their creativity. With Uranus in the mix, Eilish can make anything look attractive and sexy, even if it doesn’t fit into the traditional popular view.

lyrics: Sitting all alone
Mouth full of gum
In the driveway
My friends aren’t far
In the back of my car
Lay their bodies – Bellyache

Queen Fire: Nicki Minaj

nicki

This artist has enough fire in her chart to burn a room but with some earth to ground her. Jupiter is never tired, the energy is always going and going like…Her words. With Virgo moon her flair for words, fast and witty is evident. Her style is very much made from bold shapes and colors taken over the top. Remember, she is playing a role and behind it is probably someone shrewder than you think. Some consider the Sagittarius style to be too much and too sexy. Jupiter likes it that way. Oh and Jupiter roles curves.  Lyrics: All of these bitches in pocket, I’m ’bout to make a deposit. Tell ’em to go ‘head and gossip
As long as your house is the size of my closet-
Shanghai

Queen Water: Amy Lee 

amy lee

Amy Lee is enchanting with her beautiful voice that seems too big and deep for one person. Her style leans on the gothic warped in fairy tales with a dark atmosphere and stories of emotional depth is her art. Like Swift, she has a Cancer Moon, which allows her to go into the instinctive real of the heart. While Swift goes into subjects of Cancer the baby- teenage years, the fears and needs of the young Cancer. Amy Lee goes into the deep waters of the collective soul. She too has a taste for the dramatic with her gothic style and of course the music of Evanescence which hits your heart with no apologies.

Lyrics: When you cried I’d wipe away all of your tears
When you’d scream I’d fight away all of your fears
And I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have all of me – My Immortal

The 12h house: What is Wrong with the World

When a planet sits in the 12ht house of a natal chart it can be both a beautiful and difficult experience, often at the same time. If you have a planet of even several planets in the 12th house learning as much as you can about it is crucial. This is because 12th house planets can be hard to ever fully know and own. Especially if the rest of your chart is much more accessible overall. for example, you have a lot of fire signs or planets in houses 1 to 7. 

The way I see it, one issue is that any planet in the 12th house is already passed on from this world. It is that part of you that is old, wise, evolved more than any other. It doesn’t mean it has not lessons to learn, but it may feel it does not want to fully be present in the here and now- it wants to escape into other realms of being beyond physical existence. It wants to go back to the other world, the womb and the infinite world of the divine.

Do you see the problem? Many parts of life do offer us illusory escape: We dream in our sleep, we watch movies and read books, listen to music and daydream.So whatever planet is in your 12th house is going to be somewhat prone to not wanting to deal with its mission in the classic sense.  For example, Mercury would not want to use rational thinking and prefer mystical thinking, Venus may not consider physical beauty and form, Saturn will feel like the ultimate victim of circumstance.

I’m painting what seems like a negative picture but really it is only one aspect of this. After all, I did say this planet is already living in the spirit world- it is your highest self. But can that part of you meet reality? Can it live in our current world?

The real issue is that we are living in a world that is not perfect. We see and feel a great deal of suffering. Today more than ever we are exposed to what is going on in the world through the news and online. It cannot be ignored. As a 12th house person you will not be able to shut off all that feels so very wrong to you. Growing up you probably were told to shut off your empathy because it didn’t fit in so well with daily life and tasks. You may have been made to feel you need to reject that part of yourself that felt something was not right. You see this with children who ask questions, who wonder why things are the way they are. Teachers and grown-ups tell them not to ask those questions, not to cry over the puppy or homeless man in the street. Instead you were told you need to be strong, too survive, to fight and do your homework. To do all these Virgo things of daily routine and living. On the one hand, it is very true that the 12ht house person needs to learn to go through life all the mundane tasks of work and routine. To learn to take hold of every day and not run away. The problem is that our current world is not yet built for true compassion- people ate focused on surviving and on being “strong”. You probably rejected those aspects of yourself. Try and think back on when and how it was happening. Try and remember who you used to be before you had to develop thicker skin. You might even discover some problems started taking up root in your mind and body when it happened. Just because you disowned those parts of yourself that could not handle the pain and emotional stimulation- those parts are still a part of you. A disowned 12ht house is like a palace full of treasures with a wide open door: anyone can come and steal its treasures and burn it down to the ground. An owned 12th house shines bright light for miles, it opens its door to those in need and closes it in front of those who wish to do evil.

The people who tell the 12ht house person to develop thicker skin and be strong are missing the point. Sure, you could use some tools to deal better with organizing your life and achieving some goals. But your strength is simply different. It is not the fighting kind that goes to war like Mars. Or the kind the develops ideas like Mercury. It is the elusive strength of Neptune: that only seems weak on the surface but in fact is more long standing then them all. You have behind you the power of spirit, and the entire light of creation. Can anything triumph that? You tell me.

You need to let the planet in the 12th house be who it is, stop wearing masks and acting. Playing a role is so common for you may have forgotten you are going through the motions of a written script.  There is always a powerful creative force behind the 12th house planets, they can unleash creations that do seem to come from out of this world. They can excess experiences that people only dream of and bring them into our reality. Transforming what is wrong by showing the gap between the way things are and the way things should be. The 8th house does this too but through death and transformation, the 12h house is already…Dead. It knows what stays infinite despite death:  What is true and good, that is love and actions that impact people. These stays and never die and form them it will fight.

What is your 12th house experience?

I hope to explore the 12th house in my next posts. Starting with planets and moving on to aspects and celebrity charts. 

Venus in the 7th house: Messengers of Love

Key: People who come with a social message of the divine in us all, love, beauty and goodness prevailing no matter what.

Types: Peaceful Hippie, (dangerous) cult leader, romantic filmmaker, the marriage counselor.

Challenges: developing confidence and independent identity.

Gifts: humor, charm, artistic skill, political activism through art.

Famous people with Venus in the 7th house: Charlie Chaplin, Marlin Manson, J. K Rowling, Russel Crow.

The 7th house is very important angle in any Birth Chart; it is also called the Descendent.

What happens when your Venus is in the 7th house?  To simplify, your sense of value, confidence and well-being becomes very dependent on other people.

Venus is strongly related to our sense of confidence and self-love. It shows how we love ourselves, our self-presentation to the world through artistic means such as style. It is also related to how popular we are socially and to the things we enjoy doing for pleasure. It is a very happy planet and can give insight into those areas of standing secure on our two feet (Taurus) and our movement in the world as we connect to other people (Libra).With Venus here, relationships take center stage and the desire for love is extensive.

It can go in two directions: You can be very popular and well received by other people or you can feel unloved and even hated. Sometimes even at the same time!

As a person you know how to express affection from a young age. Your warmth, sweetness and joy were your gifts. Depending on how you were raised you will deal this gift to the world. If parents were cold and did not respond to your love nature you will become ashamed and try and hide it. As a teenager your attractiveness will make it impossible to avoid dating so it is likely you came out of hiding. You will then learn that love was only to be found in romantic relationships or sexual intimacy. This version of Libra Venus uses its charm to attract other people and to not feel ashamed or alone. They do not feel real confidence in themselves and sometimes even feel guilty to be so gifted. These men and women chase a romantic dream of love- where they will be accepted and all will be ok. The love they lacked as children will finally be given to them. All they must do? Keep being charming, beautiful and to give people what they want.

Of course, this is true for any Venus! But the Libra Venus bases so much of Its self-esteem not on worldly achievement (10th house) creativity (5th house) or nurturing abilities (4th house) instead it is very much about having another person by their side.

It doesn’t matter to them that the relationship is not perfect or even broken. They feel fulfilled at having someone who can be their mirror and show them their positive traits.

Not to sound too gloomy, I think many Venus in Libra go through a phase of needing and wanting a relationship and there is nothing wrong with that. As long as it leads them to the higher developed version of this beautiful Venus.

You see, Venus in Libra gets to know itself through the love of other people. It needs to explore relationships of all kind: From friends to enemy’s, they need to experience the full rainbow of human interaction. it is their food for growth. They choose career that involve dealing with people or human relationships. They become experts on the topic and know how to solve people’s problems in this area. Why? Because they have so many problems in relationships! So they enjoy learning how to solve such things. Work out arguments, strengthen intimacy and harmony. They also enjoy watching human interaction unfold even from the side lines. So getting caught up in gossip, drama and strange stories is not uncommon. Turning their need into a career can be a smart move for them, because they can find rational and practical tools to deal with relationships. So studying counseling, law or drama is helpful.

Many Venus in Libra enjoy esthetics, especially if those involve social topics and human psychology. Those with artistic careers deal with human-relations and social issues in music, film and drama. It all leads back to their need to understand why love isn’t there for everyone. Why can’t everyone receive love equally? Why can’t we live in a society built on partnership?

These folks genuinely care about such questions and will spend their life figuring it out.

They are very charming and attractive and can use this understanding for good and bad. Many dictators and cult leaders have Venus in the 7th house. Their charm is a power that if they feel alone and misunderstood- they use as a weapon. If they grow away from that hurt they can instead inspire others to love who they are and accept that everyone is divine and beautiful in their own right.

You see, they are stronger than they appear because they their Venus means they would always find some sense of inner light eve when times are hard. They imply need to stop searching for it on the outside and look at what they bring to the table.

Usually, for this Venus how people treat them reflects their inner state. If they repress fear or anger they will receive it right away. The world is like a mirror to the process of their growth so paying attention to that- and understanding how it works can be healing.

In seeking a partner, they must be very careful that he relationship is fair. That both partners come in from similar values. Not uncommon for this Venus to step into a very unfair relationship. If well placed marriage is a very happy and romantic affair that gives them strength to fulfill all their goals in the world. In friendships they should try and have a wider circle of friends so they don’t get too stuck with one group of people. Ultimately developing a strong individual set of values that will carry them into a more stable and happy life. For that, exploring different places, people, relationships, philosophies of love- is needed. This quote sums it up perfectly:

“There is so much good in the worst of us, and so much bad in the best of us,
it doesn’t behoove any of us to speak evil of the rest of us” said a Venus in Pisces in the 7th house Edgar Cayce.

 

Taking Care of your Mercury

In your natal chart, the planet Mercury might be overlooked in relation to your emotional well-being, but what can be more important than being able to connect with the world? To communicate with friends, lovers and family and to express your points of view to others? We as human beings need to feel heard and understood. We need it like air. Sometimes we talk because we want to feel we matter in the eyes of people. Sometimes we listen and offer our help and advice to loved ones. When we feel no one is listening or what we are saying is ignored we start to feel like we don’t matter. We ask: “What is wrong with me? Am I invisible?” This is Mercury territory. Sometimes, we change our communication just to fit in, and slowly we start to feel like we are lying to ourselves. This is normal and there is no avoiding compromising ourselves in society on some level. The problem starts, when this effects our self-esteem and ability to respect our boundaries. When a buildup of our unexpressed thoughts starts collecting like dirty laundry in our minds we become weaker. Knowing what your true Mercury needs are, can help you not overstep your own boundaries. Here is a general frame work for Mercury in your chart. Remember, aspects to other planets modify your Mercury and can serve as guide lines for dealing with any issue. The house would show you what area in your life this drama takes place.

expressive-ruth-rowland.jpg

Mercury in Fire signs:

You need to say whatever comes into your head. You are an immediate communicator. Holding your tongue feels like torture. You are honest in what you say and don’t see the point of diplomacy. You are very expressive, and people know that you will let them know if you love or hate something. You might feel as if people don’t realize there is more to your thoughts than you show. Your lesson is to learn that if you want to be honest in your opinion, you can give yourself time to take a step back and reflect. You might feel deeper aspects of your mind don’t get to be expressed and others don’t take you seriously. You can teach others to be fearless and less self-conscious. You will learn that not everyone is as fearless and sometimes not hurting feelings is just as important as any truth. Instead, express your clear and bright point of view through other means. You can encourage, lead and shine through your communication.

Mercury in Air signs:

You have many thoughts and ideas happening your mind, focusing on just one seems boring. You need to be stimulated by others. You need your thoughts to meet a point of focus in order to express. Silence is crippling for you and not connecting with others makes you sick. It doesn’t matter if you are understood as long as you are heard. You don’t mind playing devil’s advocate and can say things you don’t really mean. You enjoy small talk, banter and a good argument. You are a quick thinker and can be very objective about your opinions. You see forms of communication as art and in that sense truth is flexible and changing. You need to be around people who don’t try and put boundaries to your communication. It is important others know what you truly believe in and what is simply an exercise for you. Don’t be offended if people take what you say too seriously, just use humor to show them it’s not a big deal.

Mercury in Earth signs:

You like to have a strong foundation to any opinion. You don’t make up your mind without considering all options. You tend to communicate in ways that relate to the immediate world and its concerns. Whatever is happening around you is going to be on your mind. You have the ability to apply anything you study to your communication. Because you you’re your time to reflect before you speak, changing your mind can be a big effort of reconsidering an entire foundation. You think words matter and don’t take it lightly if someone offends you. You can communicate complicate things in a simple manner that anyone can understand. You prefer to listen and only say something if you are sure about the impact it will have. You are good at offering advice to people and they respect your opinion as it looks you worked hard for it. You hate being cornered or rushed by people and feel ignored and disrespected if that happens. You need people who would listen to you.

Mercury in Water signs:

You communicate only a small portion of what is on your mind. You feel thoughts are an endless process that you have no control over. You are strongly effected by opinions around you. You can be flexible in your communication and use non-verbal means. Using movement, dance or body language feels more honest. You adapt your communication to the circumstance at hand. You connect to the world and others through symbols and larger ideas. You sometimes erupt in very expressive outbursts and speeches about things you care about- that surprise people. You would rather stay silent than have a conflict. Words can wound you deeply. You can communicate what others are thinking better than they can. You are not so good at communicating what you are thinking. It changes anyway.

Venus in Capricorn Revisited

A while ago I made a post about his Venus claiming it had bad taste. I do not take the fun out of that observation but clearly this does no justice to this placement or to understanding it.

I kept thinking back to this Venus in Capricorn, to the steady energy of people with this natal Venus. The way I like to consider Venus, is its relation to values and beauty in our lives. It is very much about how we express our love and joy to the world and what we consider worthy of our attention.

If you have Venus in Capricorn it means you have a highly developed love nature. That is because love for you is something to be earned. You were probably one of these kids who had to do something to receive affection- you had to perform in some way. In other words- love was hard work, not an easy flow you could just enjoy. As a result, as a grown up you have very high standards for what you need to do before you open yourself to love. This is also true about what you expect from others- they must go through gradual stages of effort to win your heart.

The key word is gradual, persistent and stable effort.  You can’t fully give or take warm sensuality, love or even friendship without these little efforts to lead you there.

You are very good at building a long-lasting relationship, and most of your connections are long lasting. At the same time you are just as good avoiding any connections if they are deemed unworthy to you.  If you feel the other person is not going to put in any effort or comply to the gradual steps in the relationship- you simply walk away, unattached. This might seem a bit cold to the outside perspective, but really it is your way to create love in life. You know you can’t have it any other way, and truthfully why should you?

The problem is, that at times it might be too easy to fall into a pattern of avoidance, of being single or staying a polite distance from others. Especially when young, Venus in Capricorn can avoid dating or serious relationships altogether. This is ironic considering they only want that type of relationship. They do have an inner ideal of a traditional, marriage or at the very least a long lasting partnership that is conventional enough. Take Miley Cyrus as an example- on and off again with one serious boyfriend she is now engaged to. After all the wild years she really wants that traditional marriage. This is true to Venus in Capricorn in that no matter how freedom loving the rest of the chart might seem- at some point they will simply want to settle down.

For you love is not a flashy thing, it is not made of huge promises or lavish luxuries. It is made out of small efforts, commitments and most importantly growth. Every relationship you have is about gradually getting better, stronger and more refined. You need to know that love is about climbing up somewhere towards a goal. This goal can be anything you decide but you must see it is moving to a higher point over time. If a relationship is good but it stays the same for years? You will feel you have failed somehow. This is unfortunate, as you might become cold towards a perfectly great partner. It is better you speak the goal out loud and find ways to work towards it together. Usually, it can be something small but it still means a lot to you.

Other than that, you are a warm lover who likes to take care of another person. You enjoy knowing you can put in efforts (work) to take your partner to their highest point. You are fine with being asked to do about anything- you will not shy away from any challenge. Unless, this is something you consider being a down grade.

For example, if the person you love asks for something you think is ugly, unworthy or simply will make them appear “lower” in some way. One man with Venus in Capricorn I knew, would  buy his girlfriend beautiful clothes, jewelry and perfume but when she asked for a pair of ripped jeans she liked- he would not but them- for him she will be downgrading her looks and he would not be party to that. This is of course one example, and his can play out on emotional levels. If she had a Venus in Capricorn she might simply avoid showing angry emotions in the relationship- instead choosing to walk out of the room. Again, this is really about keeping things classy.

Venus in Capricorn, is very particular about social norms, behaviors and appearances. Again we can go back to how they won over the adults in their lives- who gave them love when they acted polite, respectful or even like “little adults”. Parents to Venus in Capricorn should be aware of this and give their smart child some leeway to be wild, messy and silly.

Sexually speaking, Venus in Capricorn are very sensual (earth sign) they are not aggressive and they are very careful about what they do until they are sure if you like it. A lover who lets them go wild a bit is what they need- they need to lose control once in a while and to show their affection in a free fashion.

Now the pitfalls for you are many. To start with, you can as I said before become too focused on things you want and avoid deep relationships. You can also end up with someone who will manipulate you to work for them. I have many examples of this Venus being abused and staying for years- putting in more efforts the more the relationships fails. So you should avoid both extremes, of too much or too little.

A good partner for you is someone who enjoys being nurtured, who will make all the secret gentleness come out from under your controlled self. Who will make you want to touch and hug them, feed them and take care of their needs. This is someone who is not aggressive, who is sensitive and has sweetness about them, someone who enjoys and appreciates the small daily efforts and the larger vision of the relationship. Who has a good vision into the future and who doesn’t want huge romantic gestures taken from a movie set. You also need a partner with a head on their shoulders, who can think in a rational manner, avoid becoming too emotional and not irrupt into intense emotions.

This is basically someone with qualities that are a crossover of Cancer and Aquarius. So if you meet someone is both in need of what you can give but also not too dependent on you- you found a match.

Now, a bit on the gender differences of this Venus: If you are a Woman with Venus in Capricorn you give love the way this post describes. You put in effort, you act classy, and you take time with building the relationship to fit what you want. You are elegant and you don’t erupt with intense emotions. You know how to walk away with grace- unless you have worked so hard you will never walk away no matter how bad it gets.

If you are a man with Venus in Capricorn, you want an elegant, small boned partner who is hard working but also wise beyond their years. Who will take a more traditional role in in the relationship. You may not admit to it but you do want her to be a bit “crazy” on an emotional level and you do enjoy a sensitive partner who will allow you open up. You want a family, children and a nice house. And you want the house (metaphorical house) to get bigger every year.

Some other key points for this Venus:

Love has no price. You are worthy of love just as you are. You don’t need to way for what you want. It is okay not to have to ask for what you need. If someone doesn’t enjoy what you give- they never will and no amount of sweat is going to change that.

Fashion of the Rising Signs: Leo

Today we are going to discuss the appearance and style of Leo.  Out of all the rising signs Leo is usually easy to spot.  As always I will be giving celebrity examples that fit the Leo “look”; this doesn’t mean they have their ascended in the sign of Leo.  We will discuss facial and physical features, fashion and behavior. These are based on my observations ions and guessing games. Of course each person is unique and ALL placements in your natal chart play a part in how you look!

Let’s start with some characteristic facial features:

The faces are usually wide with a chin that is square or rounded but seems to be a little short. The structure gives that impression of strength and is usually flat and not very sharp.  The forehead tends not to be high, with rounded corners. The most noticeable parts are the cat-like eyes: not big but elongated and shiny. The nose is usually small, short and very cute with a flat bridge and the tip is wider with a nice round bump. You can also notice how other than the tip the nose tends to flatness. Eye color tends to be more light then dark- usually a mix of colors such as hazel or green.

“typical” Leo faces, Sun in Cancer and Leo rising Selena Gomez and Virgo Claudia Schiffer and Jeniffer Lawrence of course. oh and Johnyy Depp is a Leo rising if I ever saw one- just look at that face shape. jhonny-depp-leo

True Leo

selena
Notice the hair 🙂

They have beautiful thick eyelashes that frame those gorgeous eyes.  The mouth is usually the widest t part of the face and the teeth gorgeous. Leo faces are very appealing and are considered sexy- as they combine cuteness with something a bit feral.

The most famous characteristic is the mane of hair; it is funny but tends to be true. Leo beauties have strong, thick and shiny hair which they style in a way that makes it grab attention.  It tends to be parted to the side, have bangs or sit high up like a crown. Hair color even if dark tends to be warm and lean towards golden tones.

The Leo body is not very tall and wider rather than elongated. Leo They tends to have wide shoulders and strong muscles. This rising sign is usually athletic and that shows.  If not for their active nature, they can have a bit of baby fat and rounded edges.  The legs and arms are large, the neck not very long. I should mention that all this applies to Leo rising males as well although frankly, suite and balck sun glasses are not so intresting to show. Only know that they KNOW how to wear a suite.

Leo looks good for several reasons (other than being beautiful): They have good strong body posture and always they carry themselves with dignity.  They also appear confident not just because of the way they sit or stand but due to their hand gestures and the way they hold their head. There is something regel, calm a bit lazy but always self-contained about their body language.  They don’t wave around with their hands in nervous gestures or jump around – they let you come to them. Notice that they also don’t turn their head more than they have to.

Now to some Leo fashion: Leo doesn’t wear baggy clothes. They just don’t. The clothes have to fit and often times they are tight. They choose clothes which they consider classy- something that isn’t always the new trend but makes them feel best dressed. They like to wear fabrics with some sheen and texture to it and love adding jewelry, bags, and ties- anything for a bit more shine. Some would wear “strange” new trends if it makes them feel good but most start off with classic and end up stealing the spot light.  From all the rising signs Leo is most likely to wear gold. Yes this statement is true. They will wear black- because really what they prefer is dramatic color. Noticeable, are the shapes they choose- they don’t mind dramatic big shapes or very tight fits, they are fearless. At heart they are romantics so big frills, long glamorous dresses and geometrical designs are all a great fit. I should mention Andy Warhol was a Leo with a Leo rising- that gives you some clues.  They are cool. Leo is creative, artistic, romantic and warm and that is obvious in their fashion choices.

Now, are you ready for some super Leo clothes? You may need sun glasses for this one . freddie beyonce-leo

Freddie and Beyonce, two famous Leo risings.

I would only like to add that Leo rising tend to be warm and supportive people. They see the world as their stage and are more than willing to have you there with them. They have tremendous creative drive, passion and child-like playfulness. They respect themselves and as a result they respect you.  They have a big heart and a hot temper but they don’t judge. Leo just wants to shine and fill the world with the light of their personality. As long as Leo has that- they behave. If circumstances take away from their light and warmth they turn to anger and depression. Leo rising must not repress their drive and passion- the world is better when they share the full force of who they are.

 

Date for every sign

So…Today a quick fun holidays post about the best date for every sign, of course if you know anything about Astrology our Sun sign is a small and fraction of who we are.  That being said our Sun is our ego, our self-esteem, our confidence- all things that make us happy.

Feel free to find a date that works for the chart of the person (if you know it).  For example, the perfect date for my Leo friend would fit in Gemini as she has both Moon and Venus in that sign. I wrote this with a first or second date in mind, this is not about what a sign needs in a relationship but about the general style of how they like things to play out in terms of activity. Also, this is not an in-depth or very accurate description of a sign. Why? Because a Leo Venus is not a Leo Moon, instead look at it as personality types and how to date them. Hope I made that clear and we can proceed to how fun it is to date all these different types.

What is your favorite date and what is your sign?

Date for Aries

A good date for this strong personality ruled by Mars would involve a little action. Aries enjoy anything that is new, exciting, physical and playful. Many appreciate having an adrenaline spike. So get them an experience! They also don’t like doing things alone so you can get into the fun with them.  Anything involves wheels and fun rides will be success. They can also enjoy games (paintball anyone?) As long as you let them win.  Bottom line: if it allows them to get out there and not be bored, feel competitive but also on the receiving end of warm attention- it’s a good idea.

Date for Taurus

Taurus is easy to please. Anything that is pleasant to the senses is going to make them feel loved.  Treat them to an experience that is relaxed and doesn’t involve a lot of stressful choices. They need to feel they can enjoy all that is around them- the atmosphere, the food and the music.  Taurus would also enjoy live music, theater, an art exhibition or anything beautiful. The trick is to let them soak in what you are doing together. No words needed but touch is. Bottom line: No need for expensive over the top dates, just make sure it is comfortable and smells nice where you are going. Oh and pleas pleas keep it classy.

Date for Gemini

This one can get a bit tricky; it depends greatly on your ability to read their bored face, as long as the Gemini isn’t bored? It’s going well.  A date with no complications that seems to go smoothly is what they want.  It doesn’t matter what you do as long as the conversation is flowing. That being said, many Gemini’s enjoy playing games or solving puzzles. They also like a date that isn’t too planned out. So you should plan it but make it look as if they are in a movie and stuff is just going on. Move from one place to the next, take a little trip somewhere and change direction. Gemini would appreciate a stand up show, a game of poker or a poetry night.

Date for Cancer

Cancer needs to feel they can trust you before they open up. A date that involves getting to know your soft side is going to be best.  Romantic gestures that show that you care are appreciated.  At the same time, don’t go in too strong so an activity that allows that safe space is best. Cancer can also be nostalgic and like doing something that they enjoyed growing up.  The classic movie date is not a bad idea. They can also enjoy doing something domestic like cooking together. Many enjoy following a romantic script. So the whole looking at the stars and holding hands drill. Some might also appreciate a little drama so take them to the theater or a dance show to get their emotions out. Bottom line: Keep it sweet but with a touch of dramatic flair.

Date for Leo

Leo does like the over the top romantic gestures.  They appreciate knowing they can shine in the situation.  So avoid anything that is not going to allow them to show their best: best dress, best talent or just best mood. It is not really all that complicated.  They would prefer dates to be outside the home- somewhere public. You need to show you put effort and made it not just about you.  Like the Aries they can enjoy a little bit of action and outdoor stuff- but in a glamorous setting involving heels or ties.  Bottom line: show them off in the best spot in town, and gifts are a sign of respect.  Parties, carnivals, the opera and your friend’s house, are generally reasonable ideas. Oh and keep it full of joy, no complaining.

Date for Virgo

My goodness, this one is both super simple and hard. It is about showing you have something to offer- that they want.  It doesn’t matter so much what you do as long as you’re honest and polite. Many Virgo types can enjoy a walk, a bit of nature and conversation. Yes like the Gemini date they would need to be interested in that. At first make it a coffee, don’t make it long and don’t brag.  Go somewhere that is clean and relaxed, no chaos. Virgo can also really appreciate a good sense of humor. Bottom line: simple, clean and intelligent activities.  Coffee it is.

Date for Libra

Libra would enjoy the classic date with a twist. So start with classic: a good restaurant, a show and add an element of edginess to it.  Libra  doesn’t like to be making choices during the date- so pick something for them. At the same time they are super sharp and would appreciate high culture, so nothing vulgar, ugly or aggressive pleas. If the classic pretty part goes well you can venture into something different. Like alternative music, poetry, art or maybe UFO hunting. They are amazing like that. Bottom line: not home, not nature but yes to culture of any type.

Date for Scorpio

Scorpio wants to destroy the classic date- they want to strip you down to your true intentions. The Virgo wants an honest date- Scorpio wants a date they can figure out to be honest. See the difference? Scorpio wants their emotions to awaken. If you go for a movie or a play make it something powerful and intense. They will not appreciate you trying to figure them out but will melt complexly if you lay your heart bare. Anyway, Scorpio wants an experience of emotional intimacy. How to achieve that? I don’t know, maybe save their life? Or at least show you would.

Date for Saggiterius

Saggiterius like to feel free, a date outdoors or taking a little trip is fun for them.  Unlike the Libra their idea of nature isn’t a Japanese park but a forest with animals. They also love foreign cultures so exotic foods or getting to know a culture is exciting to them.  They don’t care how highbrow a date is- they want it real and free.  So nothing that forces you into a suite or dress pleas. They could appreciate anything that allows them to learn- lectures, classes and seminars. They also enjoy sports quite a bit and comedy. Bottom line: If it speaks a new language, quakes like a duck or sounds like Jim Carrey. Go for it.

Date for Capricorn

Capricorn likes the vintage feel. They want real high quality but without glamorous or overly romantic gestures. So they don’t want you confessing your feelings but they do want you to show respect. A romantic gesture is mistrusted but simple warm actions are valued. So if you just take your coat off for them or ask them about their day they will see it as a good sign. They really enjoy classic anything. Also keep boundaries of respect and politeness at all costs. Other than that they are very down to earth and don’t need an actual “activity” for the date. Make sure to not talk too much and follow their smart little anecdotes.

Date for Aquarius

Aquarius likes a date that doesn’t say it’s a date. Keep it friendly and easy going and let them decide if they want it to be a date.  They do like to feel free and will not tolerate actions that limit that. That means that unlike the Libra they need to be making the choices for where you go. At the same time you need to be strong enough to say what you want and offer that as an option. So…Do what you like to do but make sure to incorporate their idea of fun into it. Many Aquarius types love alternative gatherings and venues that allow diversity and free spirted behavior. They would go to most things “indie” if you offer.

Date for Pisces

Well, a date that transports them beyond the mundane world is good. Maybe a date that is a bit like fate, a movie scene or dream. At least it should feel like it matters, it is about breaking boundaries. Not like the Aquarius that wants to feel they rule they world but like boundaries between people are broken. Many start relationships after an intimate conversation or doing something kind for you. I think that date happens a long time after the actual romantic connection has happened.  What made the connection? Only they know, probably something small that made them feel bound. Anyway, Pisces like dates where you both can make small sweet and caring gestures for each other. They enjoy spending time alone with you in a dreamscape.
