If you have Mars in Gemini  with Venus in Capricorn

you are . . .

The Technician of Tough Love

You are one of the earthiest of the Mars in Gemini Lovers and your reactions to sexual stimuli are very physical and strong. It’s just a shame that you are not having any fun. You tend to over-think your sexual encounters and to surrender your libido to cynical and self-defeating thoughts. As far as you are concerned, every joyous moment of bliss comes with a price and anything that feels as good as sex can't be trusted. Many will find your earthy frankness about sex refreshing, but others will object to your utter lack of romance.

You are often happiest in a relationship that requires you to give of yourself, that calls upon you to be a teacher or a mentor to a Beloved over whom you hold some sort of advantage. Such a relationship, in which you feel truly needed and useful, allows you to overcome the cynical separation between what you think about sex and how much you really enjoy it. In fact, you may even discover that it is possible to be in love and still have a good time.



The celebrity examples of The Technician of Tough Love seem to be particularly unhappy lot. First we have the great composer, Ludwig Von Beethoven (born Dec. 16, 1770 adb.) His contemporaries characterized him both as a hopeless romantic, prone to infatuations with women he could never have and as a prudish misanthrope who once “boxed the ears” of an overly amorous female fan. Beethoven never married and the only thing we know for sure about his sex life is that there was precious little of it.·

Artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (born Nov. 24, 1864 adb) also never married though it wasn’t because he failed to take full advantage of the women within his reach; prostitutes, models and cabaret singers mostly. While Lautrec’s dwarfism and bohemian lifestyle made marriage to a woman of his own class unlikely, his titled origins made a union with a working class woman unthinkable; but what really kept him single was his unflagging cynicism about love.

Sculptor Camille Claudel (born Dec. 8, 1964 adb) was probably one of the most talented female artists of her time but after she was dumped by her famous teacher and lover, Auguste Rodin, Claudel grew reclusive and paranoid and spent the last 30 years of her life in a mental institution. Writer Virginia Woolf (born Jan. 25, 1882 adb) was sexually abused as a child and this soured her on sex for the rest of her life while the sad story of Hitler’s ill-fated mistress, Eva Braun (born Feb. 6, 1912 adb) hardly requires retelling.
