- What is a cusp sign?
It is the first 5 degrees (approx 5 days before and 5 days after) when the new Sun Sign is coming into being and the old one is ending. The cusps, or blending of the signs, are more or less occupying the same time, (or space if you prefer).
The cusp strength is greatest at the midpoint (or overlapping) of this merging of the signs and the effects gradually diminish toward the end of this period, at the waning of the former sign.
- What does this mean to me?
You may find that some of the facets of your personality are directly related to the sign that has just past or is just beginning. The lesser qualities of one sign can be offset by the strength of the other that bears on the same personality or pending events. When you are born on a Cusp it is easier to adjust yourself if you realize there are more influences at work in your life than just a single Zodiac sign. This could be some of the trouble you may have had adjusting to life and events.
- How do I get a good idea of what makes me tick if I am born on a cusp?
Being born on the Cusp makes you a unique personality, with your ruling signs and influences bringing anomalies into your personality and emotions, so when reading the GENERALIZED Zodiac explanations as found on this or other sites, or books, ALWAYS read the reference for BOTH signs and you will see what I mean.
For instance: An Aries/Pisces cusp may leave you confused many times in your life when the inner spirit is gung-ho to do a thing but that tingling bit of caution creeps in to make you unsure. That is the, let’s get moving Aries being slowed down by the ever careful Pisces!
- Do the Charts deal with the cusp signs?
All charts do! Any personalized Astrology Charts are cast using your date and time of birth therefore the charts map your personality and tendencies based on the reigning signs at birth.
TAURUS: Taurus people love commitments. The are less likely to have sex with out strings attached. This is because they are obsessive people. They take sex seriously and sex becomes even a spiritual thing for them. They like being pampered and will love a tease and even a dance to get them turned on first. They love getting hickeys, their neck is a very sexual zone in their body for these people. After foreplay that’s when they like to start having sex. They want sex to be pampering for them but also like the control, so you will share the work pretty equally.
VIRGO: Virgos are the most misunderstood in having sex. They are seen as very innocent people, having their sign being a virgin. They love commitments, they won’t have sex with just any random person, no matter how tempting. They are misunderstood because when they are in a relationship with some one they are all but prude. Their partner will laugh if they ever hear some one calling them that. Virgos love to have sex, they love to tease and watch their partners face. Pleasing their partner is their priority, having sex with a virgo is very memorable.
CAPRICORN: These people are very serious about sex. It is a very thought out process for them. They will probably text you or talk to you a lot about it before you guys do it. They want to know what you like before, so it can be perfect. They love to laugh, and might even make a few sexy jokes here and there, to feel more relaxed. They need sex to be a very private thing for them. You’ll never find a capricorn hooking up or anything at all in public. If you ever tell anyone about your experience with a cap, they will hate you for that, and probably will never talk to you again.
Venus is the second sphere through which solar power passes on its way outward through the solar system. Yet from our point of view on earth, Venus is the first planet on the inside of our orbit going towards the sun. As such Venus represents the drive inward toward center, which meets the out surging solar flow. While Mercury represents meeting experience at the level of the mind, Venus refers to the inner value we give experience at the feeling-level.
It is often said that Venus is the planet of love and attraction, but it can just as well be the planet of hate and repulsion, according to the inner value we give to certain experiences. Venus’ loves and aversions draw us into some experiences and away from others. Those we enter into provide the substance for our inner growth and fulfillment.
Ideally, Venus represents harmony, for if we are attuned with our inner being, we naturally attract what will help develop and fulfill us. This meshing of a need with what will answer it is the true harmony Venus symbolizes. Venus can thus be a symbol of all harmonious relationships, of beauty, and of our need to give and receive appreciation.
But when the Venus function becomes deviated by insecurity, it can negatively refer to self-indulgence, narcissism, inappropriate emotional frivolity and unrealistic demands for love or luxury.
VENUS IN SAGITTARIUS
Keynote: Affections are motivated by visionary considerations.
Symbol: A couple wish upon a star.
While considerable enthusiasm and lively emotions will be warmly expressed towards partners, the Sagittarian need for independence may make the individual loath to be too tied to one person. The duality present in this sign will be evident, and more than one relationship may be experienced at any given time. Certainly, love will be enjoyed, and the subject will make life rewarding and exhilarating for the partner, both in bed and out. In turn, the partner needs to respond well, not only sexually but also intellectually.
Eventually a philosophical, idealistic element will develop and have its effect on the partner, doing a great deal to instill a more meaningful expression. However, intellectual rapport and friendship, as well as the willingness to enjoy sex, are essential.
This is a lively friend who will make life fun. The attitude toward finance may be “Easy come, easy go”, perhaps with the emphasis on “go”!
Venus in Sagittarius idealizes love, making it more of the mind than of the senses. Such devotion may not have great depths of passion but it sparkles like a star in the distant heavens, as though to say, ‘Fix your gaze on me and I will bring you all you desire’.
For those whose eyes are still directed earthward, this placement may be disappointing, as though Venus were a tease promising more than she can give. These individuals may try to compensate for personal inadequacies by fickle or licentious behavior. Yet even their excesses express a yearning to transcend mundane limitations.
However, those capable of loving with their minds as well as their bodies find romance to be a magic carpet transporting them to a wonderful land of refined pleasures.
Sometimes this anticipatory approach to love produces a person who uses the affection of others as stepping-stones to success and social prestige. People who come from foreign lands or who are encountered on long journeys seem more intriguing and desirable than those met close to home. One way or another, love looks beyond the familiar and the ordinary to wider horizons.
Venus/Sagittarius people do not have a reputation for domesticity, for they are too freedom loving to remain content to expend the better part of a lifetime on the tedious job of establishing a home and raising a family. Their motto is ‘don’t fence me in’.
They have the best of intentions but need a long leash if they are to remain attentive. Often they prefer to lavish their concern upon some utopian enterprise which they cause to flourish and grow, rather then upon people who never quite live up to their expectations.
They make better friends then lovers, since they feel enriched by their friendships, whereas their love affairs are liable to degenerate into unwelcome entanglements.
In many ways Venus is uplifted by Sagittarius. The Jupiterian influence expands the affections and encourages devotion to socially sanctioned forms of philanthropy. This is an excellent placement for the individual who can express love as universal good will and reverence for life.
Without a sense of shared purpose, however, romance may seem of secondary importance, being dissipated by a series of rather meaningless flirtations or multiple ‘marriages’. Sometimes this person will seek unusual emotional outlets. Earth (Venus) and fire (Sagittarius) are too disparate to blend smoothly and, as a result, love and lust remain in separate compartments.
The Venusian Sagittarian feels that romance should not bind the spirit to a weary round of chores but that it should provide incentive for the cultivation of new and exciting interests. If they can enjoy a liaison which helps them to develop personally and which broadens their horizons, then they can be the most satisfactory of partners.
Sun in Libra / Venus in Sagittarius
The subject may not seem to care about love, but he or she needs just as much romance as others. This placing helps to rationalize the feelings, however, and the need for intellectual rapport and good friendship, as well as pure romance, is very healthy.
This combination is excellent for friendship, easing any Libran tendency to take too much from other people. Professional financial help is advisable.
Sun in Scorpio / Venus in Sagittarius
This influence lightens the steamy, rather heavy Scorpio attitude to love and sex, adding a need for intellectual rapport. Much will be expected of partners, but much will be contributed.
Scorpio jealousy can clash with the Sagittarian independence, and a resolution of this conflict is important. Here is a friend who needs to share interests and challenges.
Investments will be enjoyed, but a gambling spirit should be controlled.
Sun in Sagittarius / Venus in Sagittarius
Sagittarians are the hunters of the zodiac, so when Venus joins the Sun in this sign much attention is given to the emotional chase. Fickleness must be countered. All the attributes of Venus in Sagittarius will be present.
If Neptune is also in Sagittarius there will be idealism and romantic reverie.
Money may easily slip through the subject’s fingers.
Sun in Capricorn / Venus in Sagittarius
Although the loyalty and faithfulness of Capricorn is less evident, this is a good placing for those with rather serious Capricorn qualities, helping them to enjoy life and warming their cool emotions.
There will be less social climbing in the love life, but a good mind will be deemed important, and the partner will spur on the Capricorn ambitions and aspirations. Friends must share demanding interests.
Moneymaking is less important than for other Capricorn groups.
Sun in Aquarius / Venus in Sagittarius
The Aquarian spirit will be sympathetic to the independence of Venus in Sagittarius, while the fire of that sign will warm the distant but dynamic attraction of Aquarius.
Nevertheless, the liking for individuality will not encourage even the most romantic Aquarian to rush into a long-term commitment.
Sexual experiment is likely to be usual.
There is a wide circle of friends, who often share philanthropic or intellectual interests.
Money will be spent erratically, often on silly, trendy things.
Fire: Sagittarius Fire is a bank of glowing embers. Its smoldering warmth appears comforting, but tries to cozy up to it, and you’ll soon be dodging a barrage of sparks.
Mutable. Has a swinging door attitude toward life the bedroom door.
The Archer. Sagittarius is the hunter of the zodiac. Bargain hunter, sexual predator.
Jupiter. Larger-than-life. Brutally frank. Chronically gauche.
Opening mouth before engaging brain
The one minute Philosopher
Senator in charge of filibusters
Did I do that?
Lower back, chronically aching from being such a pain in the ass.
Sagittarius lives in the ninth house of philosophy, adventure, and long-distance travel. In astrological myth, this mutable fire sign is described as a gregarious, honest fun-lover who was born with a philosophical outlook and a yen to wander.
The rotten truth is this tactless, vociferous bore galumphs through the world with one foot caught in a bucket and the other lodged firmly between his, or her, overdeveloped jaws.
Jupiter, supreme god of the universe, rules Sagittarius, and here this over-the-top jolly joker bestows a restless nature and extravagant personality. Both sexes think they know everything and spend their time trying to educate the rest of us.
Archers are passionate, not stable. By chasing whatever attracts them at the moment, they often fall victim to their own penchant for vicarious thrills. Being born with the greener-pastures gene has skewed their perspective of long-term stability versus short-term sensation. Argue, and you’ll suffer a lecture that will make your ears bleed. Try to prove your point, and you’ll be left talking to yourself because your centaur will have already jumped to the nearest fence in search of fresh clover.
‘My divorce came as a complete surprise to me. That will happen when you haven’t been home in 18 years.’ - Lee Trevino (December 1)
He’s honest, trusting, and eternally optimistic. He won’t restrict your freedom, or expect you to drop your nights out with friends in favor of staying home with him. He may have a wry perspective on life similar to Mark Twain’s or the diplomacy of Winston Churchill. An Archer wants a companion to accompany him on frequent, spontaneous outings to wonderfully diverse places, because to him, life is to be explored and enjoyed.
Before you decide he’s your soul mate, understand that a male Sagittarius has the same attitude toward commitment as does his mythological symbol, the Centaur.
He spends all of his youth and most of his adulthood in continual heat. He is an accomplished lover, but it’s the deed he desires, not you.
You no doubt fell for his smile and talent for quoting Shakespeare while simultaneously unfastening your bra. But, as a partner, he makes a great friend, one you won’t see very often because his idea of home is a place to drop in when he needs a change of clothes or a shower.
Since an Archer could happily live in a cave for months, eating crickets and contemplating his navel, even if you marry him, you’ll feel like you’re still single. Don’t expect to lean on his shoulder or cling to his arm. Do expect to be his pal (or groupie) and to spend many nights alone.
He’s neither jealous nor possessive. In fact, he wants you to have a life independent of his because that allows him more time for drinking beer with his mate and following the football. He is the one guy in the universe who was born to be a bachelor. He won’t care how you dress, who your friends are, or where you spend your time, as long as you don’t bother him with the details. He’s too busy elucidating his latest theory for solving all the problems of the world.
Archers have opinions on every subject under the sun, and cannot answer even simple questions with a plain yes or no. Ask if he wants a ham sandwich, and he’ll answer with the history of Earl of Sandwich, the 16 different kinds of bread you could use to enhance the flavor of the meat, and a dissertation on mustard.
Michael de Nostradamus, the sixteenth-century French physician and mystic, had the distinct Sagittarian penchant for expounding on the mysteries of the universe. In typical Archer style, the good doctor’s visions were not only voluminous, totaling more than 1,000, but were carefully crafted, allowing endless interpretations.
This ensured that whatever happened, he could be credited with prophesizing the event. Only an Archer would be as audacious and irresponsible as to predict events 2,000 years into the future. And only an Archer could do it with such a flair for the art of bullshit.
A male Sagittarius respects authority, as long as he’s the authority figure. Question his right to rule and you’ll soon understand the meaning of Jupiter’s wrath. He has a nasty temper and his volcanic eruptions result in expensive trips to the nearest DIY center for wallpaper, nails, and plaster.
He’s impulsive. Send him out for milk, and he’ll come home with reservations for the midnight flight to Peru. He might invite you along, and then again, he might tell you that since you both know he has more fun alone, he bought only one ticket. I
If he does take you, you will spend half your time dragging him out of the local hot spots where he’s swapping chat-up lines with the natives and the other half tracking him through the jungle as he searches for the meaning of life. You’ll be better off staying home hoping he gets kidnapped by pygmies.
The Archer’s favorite game is disaster. Tell him the sink backed up, and he’ll flood the basement because he forgot to turn off the water before he tore out the plumbing. Ask him to forgo one of his several nights out with the boys in favor of a quiet dinner at home, and he’ll rant and rave that you are smothering his need for freedom.
Even lovable Archer Walt Disney had a dark side. Remember all those endearing fairy tales he brought to the screen? Bambi’s dead mother and a raging forest fire. The orphaned Lion King stalked by his own family members. Snow White and Cinderella: one with a stepmother who wanted to cut her heart out, and the other who was forced to become a servant in her own home.
Yours will step on your toes, bore you with rhetoric, and hurt your feelings with a thoughtless remark. After all, he is a fire-breathing dragon. But, this man is more like Pete’s Dragon, Disney’s character who flops along meaning no harm and leaving little lasting damage.
Libra on the cusp of the First House (Ascendant):
This is the distinct urge to bring oneself into harmony with any and all events in one’s environment. When Libra rises the person feels the need to create a great many social contacts as the desire for union with others is paramount. In this respect Libra rising people have to take care not to compromise their own sense of individuality through an overly dependent need for constant support and cooperation from others in their immediate circle. This Ascendant is often accompanied by considerable physical beauty, grace, and charm. The urge to please dominates the life and there can be an exaggerated concern with being judge a “bad guy” should one disagree with others. This leads in many cases to a definite indecisiveness and vacillation creating delays in decision making and taking direct action. Yet there is no sign better adapt at harmonizing and blending diverse social circumstances into unified and beautiful wholes. Except for people with the Sun in Libra, will the position of Venus in the natal chart be more important. Here are just a few examples: Venus in harmonious aspect with the Moon or Neptune will enhance the urge for beauty and endow a definite poetic and romantic sensibility to one’s character. Venus inharmoniously configured with Saturn or Mars will definitely inhibit fluidity and peace in personal relationships and bring into one’s life many opportunities to learn about right sharing and correct interchange within intimate social settings.
Libra on the cusp of the Second House:
If Venus is well positioned, especially in good relationship with Saturn or the Moon, a balanced attitude toward personal finances will dominate. This is a person who likes to share their resources with others. This not only applies to money but to one’s talents and abilities as well. At the very least, the life attitude is: “You give me something of value and I will return something of equal value to you.” As this is the sign of partnership, Libra on the Second is geared to interacting financially with others. Should Venus be afflicted by the ruler of either the Eighth or the Fifth House, care must be taken about being in financial partnership with either one’s spouse or lover—the bedroom and the boardroom definitely need to be kept separate. If Venus is afflicted with the ruler of the Eleventh House, then money and friendship should never be combined. Yet Venus well placed with any of the rulers of the above mentioned Houses, will indicate that such financial interactions have the opportunity to result in positive outcomes.
Libra on the cusp of the Third House:
As this is the House of communications, Libra on this cusp indicates an urge to bring harmony and union into any and all forms of social interchange. This is especially true in terms of one’s relationships with close friends and siblings. The arts and the humanities were the favorite subjects at school and this person tended to complete his or her homework assignments. Relationships made before the age of twenty-one often last into adulthood (especially if Venus is well placed in a fixed sign). Travel is looked upon as a pleasure, especially when trips are made with close friends or a life partner. Although the need for wholeness and completion in terms of written and spoken communication is strong with the Scales on this cusp, if Venus is in a mutable sign and afflicted by Uranus, Pluto or Saturn, challenges in this area of life will tend to come about with regularity.
Libra on the cusp of the Fourth House (IC):
In this position Libra tends to bring peace, harmony and balance into all domestic relationships. The Scales here underscore the need for the individual to have a home that is a peaceful sanctuary, one that she inhabits as a refuge from the chaos of the outside world. At the very least, this is the urge of the person with this sign/cusp combination. Should Venus be afflicted in the natal chart however by Mars, Moon, Saturn or Pluto, such an aspiration would be challenged by life’s events. As Libra is the sign of marriage, there is a strong desire to share one’s home with a partner. Discord in the parental home (often indicated by afflictions between Venus, Mars, the Moon and Saturn) will tend to unbalance the psychological nature affecting all subsequent relationships accordingly. If Venus is well aspected, the native’s mother tends to be a harmonious influence, and more likely than not, charming and attractive. The latter is especially the case should natal Venus be sextile, trine or conjunct the Moon.
Libra on the cusp of the Fifth House:
The potential for the individual to be artistically creative is very strong with the Scales on this house cusp. There is usually an interest in the arts and anything of beauty attracts. Thus this position contributes to a highly romantic nature, one that seeks out all the possible sensual pleasures that personal love may bring into one’s life. This tendency will be emphasized should the Moon or Venus be in Taurus or Pisces. This is one area where the balance between “sense and sensibility” is very important in order to maintain emotional equilibrium. Children are usually wanted and lovingly accepted into life. This would be especially the case if Venus was well aspected with the Moon, harmoniously placed in the sign of Cancer or if the Moon were positively placed in this sign. Libra on this cusp would also engender a natural orientation towards fairness with one’s offspring and the tendency to avoid playing favorites.
Libra on the cusp of the Sixth House:
Relationships in the workplace are very important to a person with this sign/cusp combination. There is a need for fairness in the assignment of work and the completion of tasks. A well aspected Venus here would give the ability to decorate the workplace so that it reflects esthetic harmony. Jobs that involve dealing with the public, management-worker relationships, the arts and fashion would all be natural to a person with the Scales on the Sixth. Health is often affected by the condition of one’s relationships—an imbalance in the personal life can therefore often result in a weakening of one’s physical condition, especially in those parts of the body most under the influence of Libra and Venus: the urinary tract and the kidneys.
Libra on the cusp of the Seventh House (Descendant):
As Libra is the natural sign of this house, there is no other sign/cusp combination that is stronger in its orientation to partnership, nor more open to imbalances in relationship. The natural challenge inherent in this position is that Aries is on the Ascendant. The celestial Ram on the First House cusp gives the urge for self-projection, an urge that can easily unbalance the potential for relationship harmony. What we have here is the juxtaposition between a “me first” attitude along with a strong need to engage in a “we are together” life pattern. These opposing attitudes may swiftly result in a personality that states: “Let’s be cooperative and do things my way!” Such would be the case especially if there were a square or opposition between Venus and Mars. If, however, the nature of the personality is more whole and integrated, this sign/cusp combination may lead to great harmony and beauty within the scope of partnership. It is then that the “only me” of exaggerated Aries and the “only you” of exaggerated Libra can be combined into a forthright and healthy attitude towards relationships. The astrological student has to examine very carefully the positions of Venus and Mars to see what the potentials for marriage and partnership may be for unions with others will definitely be at the top of the priority list for a person with the Scales on the Seventh.
Libra on the cusp of the Eighth House:
There are two distinct ways in which this sign/cusp combination may express itself. On the one hand, Libra on the Eighth contains an innate tension. This is because natural energies of Mars/Pluto/Scorpio (the planetary rulers and sign of this House) are geared to the creation of challenges so that change and transformation may occur. Libra has the tendency to avoid any such confrontational situations and thus resistance to these necessary transmutations may easily arise in life. Thus delays in initiating and responding to these developmental opportunities may come about and the individual loses such opportunities for growth. On the other hand, the more psychologically mature person will find that the Scales on this cusp will bring an innate sense of perfect timing for undergoing such changes. In both cases, the field of experience through which these transformational situations occur will take place within the sphere of personal relationships. This duality extends into the use of other people’s resources. The individual may have a perfectly balanced understanding of the old adage “share and share alike” and is very fair in his or her dealings with other people’s money. The imbalanced nature of the Scales may also present itself and the person is one who tends to either take more than she is entitled to or give more than is necessary. The astrologer has to carefully study the position of Venus in the natal chart as it relates especially to Mars and/or Pluto in order to determine how the Scales will tip.
Libra on the cusp of the Ninth House:
This is not a sign/cusp combination of a person who likes to travel alone (unless Venus is in Aries and in aspect with Uranus!). Most people with Libra on the Ninth would rather stay at home than journey on their own. Companionship in the pursuit of the adventures of life or in the fulfillment of one’s higher spiritual or philosophical aspirations is of the utmost importance. Art, music, and law are three of the most natural areas of interest for advanced study. In most cases, the Scales on the Ninth reveal a person who is not fanatically attached to some religious or metaphysical belief system as the nature tends to be balanced in these directions. Yet as in all things where Libra is concerned, the Scales can tip to the other side and one can feel bound and “married” to their church and its doctrines and spend their entire life connected to their established spiritual relationship to life.
Libra on the cusp of the Tenth House (MC):
Here we find a person who seeks a career in which there is an equal sharing of rewards and responsibilities. Yet Libra in this position is highly competitive as it is both cardinal, and thus motivated through relationships, as well as posited on the MC, and thus the need for personal recognition is quite strong. One of the major benefits to this sign/cusp combination is that it can give the ability to be very personable and charming in the creation of those relationships that benefit career growth and advancement. Yet on the other hand (with Libra there is always “the other hand”), there is a tendency with Libra on the Tenth to want a simultaneous personal and professional relationship with others. This orientation can cause some profound difficulties if certain boundaries are not observed. Should Venus in this case be afflicted to Neptune for example, such complications are highly likely. Nevertheless, Libra on the MC gives one a natural appreciation for other people’s professional abilities and a natural propensity for joining forces with such individuals. If Venus is well aspected (especially to Saturn or the Moon), the father is usually friendly and quite supportive. He can also be a man gifted with charm and good looks.
Libra on the cusp of the Eleventh House:
This is a position that bestows the urge to bring harmony into group relationships. It is usually an excellent sign/cusp combination that points to an individual with the need to share and be fair in all friendships. This person is a team player, an individual who knows that her own well-being is closely connected to the well-being of others. It is also a person who is very good about matching and blending other people’s talents and abilities into combinations that yield benefits within groups and organizations. If Venus is harmoniously connected to Saturn, this organizational gift will be that much more emphasized. Should Venus be in any strong aspect to Uranus, the choice of friends will be very eclectic, the more unusual the better! The difficulty inherent in this position is that it may indicate a person with too much idealism, one who is connected to so many people of such diverse opinions and lifestyles, that it can be quite the challenge to act with clear personal direction. A strong Mars is then needed to bring the drive and determination that can balance one’s life.
Libra on the cusp of the Twelfth House:
This position sometimes makes it difficult to determine the correct degree of intimacy that is required in our dealings with others. Sometimes one is too detached and, at other times, the depth of communication is not warranted by the situation. There is also the tendency to be too idealistic and not see people for who they really are. This latter trait would be definitely the case when Libra is on the Twelfth and Venus is in a hard aspect to Neptune. Yet the potential spiritual gifts of this position are also quite profound (especially if Venus is in an easy aspect to Neptune). The orientation of one’s life would then be towards a more universal and unprejudiced form of loving others. The darker side of this sign/cusp combination has to do with having improper clandestine relationships while the lighter side brings about opportunities for being a helper to people in distress and thus amplifying the unconditional facets of love.
Sun in Virgo / Venus in Cancer
Although there will be considerable emotional resources, there may be shyness and reserve in expressing the feelings. The imagination will be rich, but worry over the loved one’s reactions can be inhibiting, especially in young people. There may be a tendency to criticize the partner or be very moody.
The household chores or hobbies can be used as an excuse for failing to enjoy the intimacies of a relationship. A clever business sense is likely, but sometimes meanness is present.
Sun in Virgo / Venus in Leo
This placing bolsters the self-confidence of the rather shy Virgoan. The tendency to be over-talkative when nervous should be controlled. Natural Virgoan modesty can easily clash with Venus in Leo showiness, both sexually and image-wise.
This is a lively friend who will want to organize occasions for everyone’s benefit. Occasional extravagances should be enjoyed rather than viewed as reasons for guilt.
Sun in Virgo / Venus in Virgo
Self-confidence, especially related to sexual appeal, is not strong. Virgoan modesty will present a charming challenge to prospective lovers, but one should learn to break down any barriers that may come between the self and fulfillment in all aspects of relationships.
Money will be spent with some degree of caution.
Sun in Virgo / Venus in Libra
This placing often helps the shy, not so self-confident Virgoan to relax and enjoy love relationships and other luxuries. It will also ease the harsher, more critical side of Virgo.
There is often flair for creative handiwork such as woodcarving or dressmaking, and all such potential must be fully developed.
Here is a helpful, sympathetic friend who will enjoy doing good turns for others. You will want to work hard for every penny earned, but will not be averse to enjoying the pleasures that extra money can bring.
Sun in Virgo / Venus in Scorpio
A conflict can arise between Virgoan modesty and the sexual desires of Venus in Scorpio. While you may be extremely attractive sexually, you may not want to appear so!
If self-confidence and relaxation into sexual enjoyment can be developed, the influence of Venus will do much good for the possibly sexually inhibited Virgoan.
This is a whole hearted friend who may become overly critical at times. Money is managed well.
Tell your Sagittarius man that you want to jump out of an airplane, take a South Pacific cruise, or even climb Mt. Everest and you’re on your way to seducing him.
The Sagittarius man loves adventure and travel. He is naturally expansive and sees all the possibilities in life. He wants to explore each and every one of them to determine where the truth lives. To seduce a Sagittarius man, you must be able to show him you are a part of that truth.
He is an idealistic wanderer, but no matter where his restless soul takes him, he’ll be on the lookout for the meaning of life. Share in his quest, appreciate his wisdom and always respect his opinions if you want to seduce him.
Oh, and don’t cling. He needs freedom so if you want to seduce a Sagittarius know when to hold on and when to let go. Give him something to believe in and you’re likely to seduce his heart as well as his body.
As with all sun signs, we all have unique traits to our personalities. When these traits are suppressed, or unrealized, problems will arise. However, with astrology we can examine the problem and assess the proper solution based on the sun sign characteristics. As a Virgo you may see things below that really strike home. Try the solution; you most likely will be amazed at the results. If you find yourself on the receiving end of the negatives below, it is because you are failing to express the positive.
Problem: Finding yourself frequently alone and unable to keep friends for more than a few weeks.
Solution: Try not to be argumentative over much and the constant criticism that Virgos give to their companions are not endearing qualities to have. Try to live and let live, they will love you for it.
Problem: People tend to avoid making close contact with you.
Solution: Being too preoccupied with health and making it a continual topic of conversation. Try to keep your tips and suggestions about health and health products to yourself unless asked for them.
Problem: Dissatisfied with the way your life is turning out; no excitement or change to speak of.
Solution: You may be restricting yourself by reducing your life to a set of theories and pigeon-holes. Try to express the positive by first asking yourself, who or what are you serving; are you devoted or are you enslaved. Answer those questions and then start a new path that includes your true worth.
Problem: You may feel that your life and your climb to success is a steep hill that you may never be able to scale.
Solution: Try expressing the positive traits of your finely tuned analytical reasoning, employing the light touch with employees and coworkers, while expressing genuine concern for all; you will find those mountains turning into hills that you run right over.
Professionalism, dignity, strength, impersonality. Although it is no challenge to describe the characteristics of Capricorn, it is not always easy to recognize typical Capricorn behavior and appearance. Most Cappys come out as solid, no-nonsense individuals with a somewhat impersonal “get the work done” attitude. Then there are quite a few of the soft, responsive type who glorify imagination and mystery. Usually, the best way to spot a goat is to look for a melancholy, serious exterior below which dwells a dry sense of humor. Capricorns are surrounded by an air of affectivity and competence. Even their posture and body language speak of practicality and the desire for problem-solving. Capricorns always conceive of things as problems to be overcome or tasks to be completed. Realizing this, recognizing them becomes easier - Capricorns want to effectively remove not only their own but also everybody else’s obstacles. They sometimes appear cautious or even shy; the kind of person who won’t give away anything, and you suspect there is more to them than meets the eye. Many Capricorns give an impression of humility, but few are unaware of their own real worth and ability.
Physical features vary. The popular notion of Capricorn appearance is a slender, bony type tending towards dusky and dark colors of hair and skin, a sharp, pointed nose, thin hair and marked cheekbones. However, many male Capricorns seem to contradict this image. They appear to be heavier and more robust, with an open face and generous proportions, much like the prototype “good” male romantic hero. The sense of sturdiness and sharpness remains, though. Female Capricorns are even harder to pinpoint. They can be quiet, squarish types who dissolve into the background. Yet experience shows that Capricorn women (not just models and movie stars) often have a spare, very unique beauty of their own - what might be described as a sense of purity and detachment seemingly at odds with their candid sensuality.

Leo women have birthdays from July 23 to August 22. They are extremely warm-hearted and sympathetic. They love their roles as wives and mothers, and often do not seek employment outside the home. When they do, they are far better suited for mental labor rather than manual labor. They seem to inspire hope to all who come in contact with them. For that reason, they are skillful nurses and members of the clergy. By nature, Leo women are very independent and resent being commanded. They have a keen sense of judgment and rise well to the challenge of leadership roles.
Leo women can adapt themselves readily to a wider range of circumstances than women of any other sign. They find it more agreeable to plan their work than to execute the details it involves. Like the lion that represents Leo, they are fond of luxury, warmth, and ease. This does not mean they’re lazy, but what they do is usually through inspiration, or when the mood strikes them. Yet when necessary they display unbound fortitude and great courage while doing what they need to do promptly and effectively.
They are secretive and great at keeping a “poker face” so others are not aware of their true thoughts. Leo women have great respect for law and authority but, because of their fire sign, must guard against being hot-headed so they do not get in trouble with the law.
Leo women cannot bear to be neglected by the men they love. “Love me or I die” could be their motto. They need to take caution against young or hasty marriages. In most instances it is advisable that they wait until they are well settled in life before marrying someone of equal social and intellectual standing. These wondrous women have the greatest love for their family. In the rearing of their children they use their great wisdom and do not rely heavily on advice from others. Mothers of this sign are gentle and tender and display great ferocity toward those who cause their children any grief.
The sign Leo rules over the heart. Their diet should be wholesome and meals should be quiet, orderly, and calm. Temperate habits and a harmonious home life are essential to the health and happiness of Leo women. When this doesn’t happen, heart problems can result. However, these women have great vitality and can soon recover from many serious ailments.
Despite their considerable talents, Leo women must guard against despondency and depression. When these appear, it is best to sum up faults and weaknesses. Self-control is essential. Courage is there to look facts in the face and use self-control to start anew with fresh resolves. They will never know true happiness and prosperity if they permit others to toss their emotions around without following their better judgment. The secret of success lies in their genial manner which enables them to keep in sync with those around them. When they conquer their faults, there is no limit to the wondrous things Leo women can do.

These friendly people are ideal partners for social events, parties and long holidays. Leos have remarkable leadership skills, which usually brings them to positions of authority. Leos take charge naturally; they may be mistaken as being bossy. However, they will work hard to fulfill their responsibilities, and they make excellent managers and leaders.
Lions are known for their courage and would much rather play strong and protective roles for others than be weak and defenseless. Leos presume that others possess a sense of integrity similar to their own, and they are careful to keep their sense of self respect in any disagreement. Leos are very aware of the impressions they make on others.
Being a fire sign, Leos are usually lively and enthusiastic but can be stubborn. Their creativity and sense of drama combine to make them great romantics. Leos love to love and be loved. You’ll know a Leo when you meet one, their dynamic personalities will leave a lasting impression.
Don’t be fooled by the name. The Virgo is no simpering virgin who might be easily impressed and effortlessly satisfied. Rather, this complex sign heralds a person who is cautious in love – but a very rewarding partner when understood and appreciated. So if you’re thinking about dating the Virgin (or your romance is already underway) be wary of the pitfalls, and heed how to bring out the best in this mysterious personality.
The good news? Virgos never approach anything halfheartedly, which means yours will undoubtedly devote mountains of energy to your relationship. If you’re still in the flirtation stage, be prepared for a dedicated courtship. Your Virgo may lavish energy in the form of gifts, calls and compliments. Or, more likely, you’ll find their energy spent in the form of more conservative, but carefully thought-out gestures – and painstakingly laid plans. And don’t expect that dedication to dissipate once flirtation gives way to the long-term. It’s quite the opposite… Virgo’s efforts may redouble when faced with a new role to perfect. Remember – they are never quick to give up on a relationship.
A Virgo is likely to focus on doing it right, on being the “perfect” partner. This can be frustrating when your lover is so focused on taking the perfect steps that they miss the right ones. You may find you have a great listener, who always remembers your favorite meals or plans hopelessly romantic Friday nights – but doesn’t want to talk about their doubts regarding the relationship, or the problems they’re having at work. It may be up to you to make sure you don’t miss out on the makings of true intimacy. You’ll have to help your Virgo see that the best relationships aren’t perfect, and that being real will bring you closer together.
Of all the zodiac signs, Virgo has the best eye for details – and a mind that’s built for analysis. They also have a refreshingly honest drive to be helpful to others. These qualities make for a partner who is talented at assessing your needs, and helping with your problems. They will never fail to notice that you crave sweets when you’re happy, or that you’re uncomfortable when talking about your family. Your Virgo may also have uncanny insights into your problems, because they notice things about you that you yourself might miss.
Unfortunately, a keen observer can also make for a finder of faults – your Virgo may notice details you’d rather not have brought to light. Virgos can come across as harsh or critical… even as know-it-alls. Try not to be offended. Keep in mind that Virgos notice just as many flaws in themselves. It is in their nature to consider all the details, and their criticism is often their way of trying to help.
Relentlessly practical, the Virgo is probably the sign that is least likely to bring unnecessary drama into your life. Virgos are down to earth, and will acknowledge when they are wrong as long as they are presented with clear, logical facts. Also notoriously clean and healthy, Virgos like everything to be in its place and at its best.
On the other hand, a Virgo’s capacity for order and logic may push your limits, especially if you take an earthy approach to romance. While often creative, the Virgin is rarely dreamy or whimsical. Pack rats beware: the Virgin is likely to clean your apartment and try to change your habits. And if you’re a dreamer yourself, be prepared to adjust to The Virgin’s Vulcan sense of logic.
For Virgos, love comes slowly, and burns deeply. It is difficult for a Virgo to fall in love, and even after taking the leap; it can be hard to express those feelings. A Virgo thrives on self-control, and needs time to understand what they are feeling before acting on it. This can be maddening when you’re aching for warmth and expression. Don’t misread a Virgo’s hesitation as coolness or lack of interest: your Virgin will express love in their own way – you just may need to demonstrate your own feelings first.
In the bedroom, the Virgo’s perfectionism and helpfulness translates to an eagerness to please. The Virgin may be careful in love, but is hardly prudish about physical intimacy. This attentive lover loves giving as much as receiving, and will never leave a partner unsatisfied. While Virgos are usually unstinting in giving pleasure, they can be reserved about expressing their own passion. The same sense of caution and control that governs emotions can rule the Virgo sexually. If you can manage to unleash the Virgin’s passionate side, however, you’ll find yourself paired with a dedicated lover whose attention to detail will drive you wild.
Intimacy can be challenging. It’s not easy feeling exposed and vulnerable to those you love and trust — much less to someone you’re newly dating. Relationships bring up our deepest anxieties, which we express in different ways. Some signs, such as Sagittarius and Aquarius, fear they’ll lose their independence, so they hold people at arm’s length. Others, like Cancer and Scorpio, crave commitment and may come off as too needy. Learning how to create true intimacy is what life’s all about. What issues might stand in your way?
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You’re determined to do things your own way, Aries. That spark of sovereignty within you is strong, and you fear losing it in relationships. Because you can take care of things so well on your own, you may shy away from letting others know how much you need them. Practicing the art of give-and-take is the key to maintaining your independence and also letting others in deeply. Also, take care you don’t demand too much, too soon.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You know once you make a commitment, Taurus, it’s for good. That’s why you take your time choosing the right person. Once locked in, however, you want things to stay the same forever and stubbornly resist change. Fear of leaving your comfortable rut is your single greatest barrier to intimacy — a condition that thrives on constant growth. You need to trust that change is good, and embrace it with open arms before love can flourish.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
As you tend to flirt around a lot, Gemini, never staying put long enough to establish deeply-rooted ties. The fear of becoming bored or being hemmed in tends to keep you on the surface of things, never investing enough of yourself to feel committed. And, there’s that secret fear that your partner might discover the “dark twin” you try so hard to hide. Yet letting someone in shines the light of love into the darkness — leading to true intimacy.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You fear exposing your soft underbelly, Cancer. Since your emotions are so close to the surface, it happens more often than you’d like. Once exposed, you’re at your loved one’s mercy. Because you’re more comfortable nurturing others than receiving loving care, being willing to fall apart, cry or be vulnerable is actually good for you. And, your willingness to reveal yourself makes intimacy with others much more rewarding.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
You have a hard time relinquishing control, Leo. And, your desire to be the one in charge can keep others at a distance. Because you seem so capable, they may be content to let you run the show. Don’t fall prey to this trap, though — sharing power in a relationship is the key to intimacy. As you reveal areas in which you’re not as competent, you let others know the true you. Your quick temper can also ward people off, so practice patience.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
A feeling of unworthiness is at the root of your intimacy issues, Virgo. You fear that if you reveal your imperfections, others will run away. Yet no one holds you to the impossibly high standards you set for yourself. In fact, they’d rather you come out and play instead of always worrying and care-taking them. Don’t let your sharp mind and analytical abilities dominate your feelings, where the magic of intimacy lies.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
You work hard at making things beautiful and harmonious, Libra. Therefore, you may tend to sweep relationship issues under the rug where they fester and create distance between you. Intimacy is about being real, not pretending things are ideal when they’re not. Also, your agile mind is skilled at figuring out feelings without ever feeling them. Getting into the messy realm of emotions scares you, but it’s the key to intimacy.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
People sometimes feel threatened by you, Scorpio, which can be an obstacle to closeness. It’s not that you avoid intimacy; you thrive on delving deeply into feelings and confronting issues. It’s just that your intensity and blunt honesty can be too much for others. And, they may feel you want too much. On the other hand, you may hide your deepest feelings, afraid that if you open up you’ll be betrayed. You need to learn to trust more.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
Yours is the sign of the eternal bachelor, Sagittarius. Footloose and fancy-free, you fiercely guard your freedom and often turn tail and run when people get too close. Your biggest obstacle to intimacy is considering commitment a trap, associated with the boring and humdrum. The solution is to find a partner who’ll give you a long leash — but in return, you’ll have to promise to stick around for the tedious parts.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
You want to be seen as the strong one, Capricorn. Capable, sure, even stoic, you shy away from the realm of emotions and are loathe to let your vulnerabilities show. Others end up leaning on you, but what happens when you need help? You need to learn how to let others past your defenses and love you. Once you shatter the illusion that you’re invulnerable, then caring becomes a two-way-street and true intimacy is yours.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
Like Mr. Spock from Star Trek, the ultimate Aquarian, your sign prefers logic to feelings. You’re seen as self-contained, even chilly, and have trouble expressing what’s in your heart. Because you possess a brighter, quicker mind than most, you think it ought to serve all your needs. You fear losing your freedom if you let others in. Yet to avoid the fate of loneliness, you need to open up and explore the territory of the heart.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Your biggest obstacle to intimacy, Pisces, is a lack of self-knowledge. You’re such a chameleon, skilled at being all things to all people, that you may not know what you really want. As you spend some time alone, apart from others’ needs and feelings, you’ll create better boundaries and lose the need to rescue those you love or let them take advantage of you. You’ll also find that place of strength that fosters true intimacy.
With their clashing personalities, Virgo and Sagittarius don’t get along too well, and it is most likely that you feel torn between their differences. Your Virgo Sun is introverted and analytical, and self-control is the safeguard against your anarchistic tendencies, but excessive restraint yields the exact reverse effect of what is expected. Owing to your Sagittarius Ascendant, you come across as a sociable and cosmopolitan person. When you meet people for the first time, you approach them with so much openness, enthusiasm, and politenesses that you feel that you can understand any opinion and give your own viewpoints freely, though you do so with a touch of proselytism. In society, you are relaxed and you show your fondness for feasts, perhaps because you fear that your more intellectual and critical true self puts people off. You are wrong because your Virgo facet offsets the pomposity and casualness you are often blamed for. Owing to Virgo, you are composed, organized, and modest. Your piercing gaze overlooks nothing, especially not the smallest details, and your snap judgments are merely an entertaining mask which you are the first one to consider unimportant. Since they are both Mutable signs, Virgo and Sagittarius are equally flexible and able to adjust to any situation.
Your personality is marked by two signs which have in common some reserve and an extremely developed critical mind. You use, sometimes you misuse, insightful but punchy words which may hurt or reveal your interlocutor’s lack of sincerity. The Ascendant sign describes the image you project, whereas the Sun sign symbolizes your inner self. In your case, there is no discrepancy between the ways you behave in society and in private settings. Both of them are cautious, perceptive, and perfectionist, even extremist as far as Scorpio is concerned. Virgo is often considered to be the “mild” version of Scorpio, and as such, helpful, discreet, and almost impossible to corrupt. Your Sun sign also has a component known as the “Wild Virgo”, which is prone to sudden about-turns and, surprisingly enough, recalls Scorpio’s traits. Nevertheless, Virgo and Scorpio are quite different. Scorpio is often seething with internal rage and revels in provocations just for the sake of showing that it cannot be tamed or influenced. Although your outward appearance is abrasive, you offer to your close ones your sound intellect and your pragmatism which prove so convenient in everyday life.
