Venus in Aquarius

Sharon Stone – A Diva Meltdown

As a woman of a certain age, I am a huge fan of women who remain sex symbols well past their 40s and into their 50s, and even beyond. I am also a big fan of women who appear strong and individualistic. This makes me very interested in Sharon Stone, and as an astrologer I had to wonder what the heck was up with her lately when I saw her sitting at a press conference with Shimon Peres, supposedly promoting peace in Israel, yet saying “People are …saying, ‘I just want to know is she getting naked?’ So let’s just get through to that. Yes!” I’m probably not the only one who was rather taken aback at that shameless and flamboyant attempt at self-promotion in the guise of working for world peace. Then came another shocker when she said: ” “Young people talk to me about what to do if they’re being pressed for sex. I tell them what I believe – oral sex is a hundred times safer than vaginal or anal sex.” What can she be thinking???

Taking a look at Stone’s birthchart, she has a Pisces Sun and therefore has a chameleon-like personality. Pisces, like the water it represents, adapts to fit its container. Pisces longs for a spiritual identity, and Sharon Stone has been a longtime supporter of the Dalai Lama. Yet Pisces can sometimes lack a strong sense of Self as a result of its extreme adaptation tendencies. When Stone was younger, she decried Hollywood’s emphasis on her beauty and desired to be taken seriously as an actress. Her Sun conjunct Mercury bestows above-average intelligence, but both are squared by the self-doubt of Saturn. This indicates a deep-rooted sense […]

Venus Enters Aquarius as Jupiter Retrogrades

Venus changed signs last weekend, leaving the compassionate sign of Pisces and entering the more rational Aquarius. Venus affects our dealings with others, and the way we feel about ourselves. In Aquarius Venus is depersonalized; the importance of the collective becomes more important than individual expressions of affection.

However, with Jupiter in square to Neptune as it has been since January, there is a blurring (Neptune) of ideals and values (Jupiter) that renders all of our interactions pretty fuzzy right now. In Aquarius, Venus will seek to advance the agenda of the collective at large rather than individuals, but with the influence of the Jupiter/Neptune square this becomes confused. What is the collective? Who are the alliances? We see this on the world stage with global relationships. The US was allied with Pakistan. Suddenly after Bush’s foray into India last week, Bush is now allied with India and appears to be less supportive of Pakistan. Australia suddenly announces it will begin selling Uranium to India. Factions in Iraq fail to unite to call a parliament.

Also this weekend, Jupiter turned retrograde (appeared to move backward from our perspective here on earth). When planets turn retrograde, we become more focused on issues important to that planet. In its most positive form Jupiter deals with issues of values, philosophies, opportunities, expansion. When retrograde, we tend to see ALL shades of a planet’s functions, not just the positive ones. Consequently, we are most likely to see Jupiter’s self-righteousness and overconfidence. Jupiter rules Sagittarius, and with Pluto (destruction and transformation) having been in Sag since 1995 we have been witness to an increasing tendency towards religious and cultural (Sag/Jupiter) war and conflict (Pluto). With […]
