If you have Mars in Pisces with Venus in Gemini

you are . . .

The Artful Love Addict

You are a sweetly duplicitous Mars in Pisces Lover who uses a charming smile and a rational explanation to conceal seething emotions and desperate sexual needs. The person you’re trying to fool with these little lies is too often yourself. You try to ignore the irrational, compulsive and emotionally vulnerable side of your sexual nature and pretend that your cleverness and your knack for flirtatious repartee is the sum total of your erotic world. Then another wave of sexual madness hits you and there you are, trying to explain away your obsessions and acting as if no one got hurt.

Commitment does not come easily for you. You are quite capable of using your keen sensitivity and cleverness to dance around the issue of love forever. And yet, your sexuality is so full of emotional needs and vulnerablity that, after awhile, a stable, long-term relationship can seem less like a prison and more like a refuge. Once you to stop playing games and find a serious relationship you will quickly find that being hopelessly addicted to love is really not so bad.



Our celebrity examples of this type include two people who were reputedly linked romantically. In the 1960s Edie Sedgwick (born April 20, 1943 adb) was an heiress with old money connections who became the star of several of Andy Warhol’s quirky films. At once utterly uninhibited and tragically vulnerable, Sedgwick reigned as the “queen of the underground” for a while until drug addiction took her down. During her time at the top of the 60s scene it was rumored that Sedgwick was having an affair with another Artful Love Addict; Bob Dylan (born May 24, 1941 adb.) Unlike Sedgwick, however, Dylan escaped the non-stop party atmosphere of the time, got married and moved to the country.

Other examples of The Artful Love Addict include actor Tom Hanks (born July 9, 1956 adb,) model Heidi Klum (born June 1, 1973 wik,) actress and reality show star Tori Spelling (born May 16, 1973 adb,) actress (Mad Men) Christina Hendricks (born May 3, 1975 wik) and jazz legend Benny Goodman (born May 30, 1909 wik.) Goodman, the son of a dirt poor Jewish immigrant, dallied with a variety of women during his teens and twenties as he advanced his career. Then he surprised everyone by marrying a woman from the upper crust of WASPish society. No one thought that this rootless musician could adapt to this new, blue-blooded lifestyle but Goodman proved them wrong and the marriage lasted for 36 years.
