If you have Mars in Aquarius with Venus in Cancer

you are . . .

The Lunar Liberator

You are the most unpredictable and confounding of the Mars in Aquarius Lovers; alternating as you do between self-possessed coolness and abject submission. You are more emotionally vulnerable and innately conservative than most Lovers of this type and you look for security and nurturing in your love life. Unfortunately, you often place the relationships that can provide you with these necessities in jeopardy by taking ill-advised risks and picking the most awkward times to declare you independence. Even those who love and know you best are never sure if it’s cuddling or freedom that you most require.

On the positive side, you are one of the most alluring and seductive of the Mars in Aquarius Lovers. The emotional side of love is no mystery to you. You understand it and you know how to use it to you advantage. In some instances, the combination of this understanding and your intellectual aloofness to sexual passion can make you a manipulative and devilish clever Lover but, in general, you are too wrapped up in your own emotional needs to bother with romantic games. You require a partner who can take care of those emotional needs and give you sex with a purpose and finding a person so special will require all of your attention.



Since this a relatively rare combination of Mars and Venus we only have a few examples. The primary one is the writer Djuna Barnes (born June 12, 1892 wik.) Barnes came from a family of radical free-thinkers so the concept of free-love was hardly foreign to her, and yet, over and over, she chose partners on whom she became emotionally dependent or who were dependent upon her. Her lovers included a German aristocrat who broke her heart when he revealed he could only marry someone of his own class, a woman dying of tuberculosis who Barnes nursed until the end and an alcoholic writer whose grand opus would never be completed. Her most famous love affair was with a wild woman named Thelma Wood who was also an alcoholic and shamelessly promiscuous. Their eight years together gave Barnes the material for her best writing and left her an emotional shell.

Other examples of The Lunar Liberator include former president George Herbert Walker Bush (born June 12, 1924 adb,) boxer Sugar Ray Leonard (born May 17, 1956 adb,) singer Alison Krauss (July 23, 1971 adb,) figure skater Kristi Yamaguchi (born July 12, 1971 adb) and actor William Powell (born July 29, 1892 wik.) The suave and dapper Powell, who was amicably separated from his first wife, had the distinction of being romantically paired with two of Hollywood’s most glamorous blond bombshells, Carol Lombard and Jean Harlow. He also had the heartbreaking experience of seeing both of these beauties die tragically young.
