If you have Mars in Pisces with Venus in Aries

you are . . .


The Emphatic Love Addict


You are a pushy Mars in Pisces Lover who believes that the best emotional defense is to always be on the offense. You hide your vulnerability behind a façade of daring and sexual bravado and you compensate for your own tendency to fall in love too quickly and too often by making everyone fall in love with you first. This aggressive stance makes you one of the most visible and dynamic Lovers of this type but it also leaves you wide-open to emotional injury.


Since it is you who takes the initiative in relationships, it is very likely that you will find the warmth and emotional support you so desperately need. It is making it last that’s the problem. That requires patience and patience is the one ingredient of a happy love life that you totally lack. When hard times hit a relationship, or you feel less than totally adored, you immediately begin looking for an exit. It always seems easier to make a new start than to ride out an emotional storm. Until you learn to deal with this restlessness (some might call it cowardliness,) you will never find the secure bond you desire.

 

CELEBRITY EXAMPLES OF THE EMPHATIC LOVE ADDICT

Our celebrity examples of The Emphatic Love Addict start with two of the greatest female sex symbols of the 20th Century. The first is Marilyn Monroe (born June 1, 1926 adb.) Monroe’s sex life was frequently disrupted by her emotional insecurity. She possessed a tangible sensuality and, more importantly, a unique ability to project that sexual fullness through the lens of a camera and to the world. The giggly, blond persona she created has captivated generations but much of the time she was just looking for a partner who could make her feel protected and worthwhile.·

The second is Elizabeth Taylor (born Feb. 27, 1932 adb.) Like Monroe, Taylor searched in vain through eight marriages to seven men for a secure and enduring relationship and, also like Monroe, her greatest love affair was with her own stardom.

On the masculine side of the equation we have Steve McQueen (born March 24, 1930 adb,) a genuine tough guy who survived gang life, an abusive step-father and reform school to become the highest paid film star of his era. The key to McQueen’s success was the quality of emotional vulnerability he brought to his anti-hero characters.·


Other examples of this type include country music icon Johnny Cash (born Feb. 26, 1932 adb,) former reality show father Jon Gosselin (born Apr. 1, 1977 wik,) comedian and former talk show host Rosie O’Donnell (born March 21, 1962 wik,) noted for her candor about both her political opinions and her homosexuality, and Michelangelo Buonarroti (born March 15, 1475 NS adb,) who wrote passionate poetry about certain young men in his life and sculpted male nudes with a famously muscular sensuality and yet seems that have been, by all accounts, a celibate.
