What’s the “Hottest” Venus Sign?

hugh_jackmanPart 1 of 4: Venus in Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces (Water Signs)

That’s a good question. In theory every placement of Venus in the horoscope has the capacity to attract a partner but each sign does this in a different way. Deciding which Venus sign is the most attractive really comes down to a matter of taste. Over the next few days, I'll review the pros and cons of four different groups of Venus signs. Then you can decide which one is most likely to rock your world.

First, let’s consider Venus in Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces, the three Water Signs.

This Week's Astrology Term: the Elementswater

The term Elements refers to a set of categories that astrologers use to divide up the twelve signs of the Zodiac. Each sign is representative of one of these four Elements: Fire, Earth, Air and Water.

This is how they breakdown:
Fire Signs – Aries, Leo and Sagittarius
Earth Signs – Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn
Air Signs – Gemini, Libra and Aquarius
Water Signs – Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces

Signs belonging to the same Element display very similar forms of energy. They share many of the same strengths and a many of the same faults. Here is a list of keywords that describe those similarities.

This Week’s Astrology Term: Aspects

The term “aspect” refers to the distance between two or more bodies in a horoscope. Certain distances are considered significant. When the Sun, Moon or a planet are 180 degrees apart, for example, that is an opposition aspect. Other significant aspects are the conjunction (0 degrees apart,) the sextile (60 degrees apart,) the square (90 degrees apart) and the trine (120 degree apart.)  Some astrologers consider more obscure aspects, such as the quincunx (150 degrees apart) and the semi-square (45 degrees apart,) important but the conjunction, sextile, square, trine and opposition are more-or-less universally accepted.

Aspects tell the astrologer how the Sun, Moon and planets relate to one another in the horoscope. The relationship between two planets that are in a square aspect will be characterized by conflict, aggression and tension while the relationship between two planets in a trine aspect will be cooperative, easy and generally pleasant. In this way the aspects tell us the story of the horoscope. They describe the way the various characters in that circular community will interact, who is on friendly and unfriendly terms with whom.

What’s Next For Sarah, Duchess Of York?

sarah_fergusonThe last year and a half have certainly been interesting for Sarah Ferguson, otherwise known and Sarah, Duchess of York. In May 2010 she was filmed offering access to her royal husband for a fee. Around the same time her lawyers took her to court over unpaid fees. Earlier this year she was the subject of a series of TV shows on the OWN network in which she had her various problems analyzed by a battery of experts that included Dr. Phil McGraw. More recently, she walked out of an interview on Australian TV because she felt she had been “ambushed” by questions regarding the “pay for access” scandal. The Duchess has been the subject of media attention, both good and bad, since her marriage to Britain’s Prince Andrew in 1986, but this last flurry of publicity has been particularly grueling.
