At the exact minute of your birth, the astrological sign that is rising on the eastern horizon is designated the Ascendant or Rising Sign. The Ascendant is how you dawn on the world, how you present yourself to others. If someone were to guess your astrological sun sign, they would guess it based on what you show the world, which is your rising sign. Its the characteristics and personality traits that you put forth for all to see. Its the stained glass window that you project outward for the rest of your chart to flow through.
Those with a Leo rising are typically giving, prideful, emotionally reactive, outgoing, loud, narcissistic, brave, confident, dramatic, romantic, and they are excellent showmen. They tend to go about like royalty, taking care of their subjects and expecting complete devotion from them. You have vitality and can be a bit of a risk taker, sometimes too much so. Extremely prideful, the biggest insult someone can throw at you would be to your ego. Appreciation is also something you require in order to feel satisfied. You can come off as loud and tough, but inside you are a big softie. When you care, you are easily wounded. In regards to a romantic partner, you would prefer that they are someone who will make you proud, and you in turn would like to foster this sort of reaction from them. You are very loyal to those you care for and would protect them fiercely if ever need be. Your anger can flare up suddenly but luckily this tends to resolve quickly and you are back to being your merry self again. Dramatic displays tickle your fancy and you can be somewhat of a drama queen or king yourself. Being in the limelight, all eyes focused on you is not only comfortable for you but you seek this attention out. At times you can be inflexible and unyielding, but you do this in a jovial way. It is unlikely that you will ever forget a slight, particularly if your ego is damaged, though you will usually forgive. You are rather sporty and enjoy being out in nature. You have an excellent drive and cheerful disposition, however if something goes wrong in your love relationship, it can zap the life out of you. Having warmth and love in your life is crucial to you. When discouraged, you may lose your willpower to live. A lesson you will need to learn during your lifetime is to be more humble. Leo is ruled by the Sun and therefore its placement in your chart will be significant.
If the planets symbolize the forces and energies that happen in different situations, then the aspects between the planets symbolize how these energies work together and integrate with each other. There are challenging and easy aspects between the planets and it is up to the individual to choose how they are going to utilize the aspect energies for a positive outcome. The aspects between planets are said to speak to each other. Depending on which planets are aspecting each other and the rest of the natal chart, will determine which planet is dominate and which is not in the aspect between them. But ultimately it is up to the individual to decide how they are going to use the aspects of planets in their chart with their free will, in a meaningful and productive way.
You are a kind, caring, empathetic spirit that will aid anyone who is in need of it. You are openly demonstrative of your affections without discrimination and enjoy nurturing others in a motherly fashion. Romantically, you prefer someone that has a high regard for partnership, home-life, and familial ties. All forms of inconsiderate behaviour by other people are extremely offensive to you. Your charming, polished demeanour is welcome in any social situation. You excel at entertaining others in your home due to your gracious manner and strong desire to take care of people; others know their company will not be taken for granted. You truly listen to other people and do not judge them for their mistakes or different views, so your counsel is often highly sought after. You are likely to be gifted in vocal ability, the arts, or to be musically inclined. The way you look matters to you and you will take great pride in making sure you appear well-kept. However, be mindful of laziness setting in and keeping you from engaging in tasks that are laborious though necessary. Over-indulgence in tasty foods is another problem area for you and you need to make sure you get enough physical activity to counter this. You are susceptible to eating your troubles away when you become emotionally compromised. Keep an eye on this tendency or it will create issues for your health. Motivation for physical activity can be difficult for you to muster up as you do not enjoy it much. Despite being prone to shyness deep down, your pleasant and approachable persona gives you much popularity. You have a knack for creating beautiful things in harmonious patterns whether this is art, design, floral mixes, fashion, or music. This placement bestows luck in your partnerships, finances, and physical well-being however you must curb your desire to spend more than you have trying to achieve a more comfortable, luxurious life-style. You crave pleasurable experiences and this craving needs to be moderated.
You are imaginative with an amazing sensitivity and keen intuition. You prefer to behave in a caring, tender manner and enjoy a bit of romance. You empathise with others, listening to their troubles while never judging them. Your idealistic views can inspire others through artistic ventures, which you find deeply emotionally satisfying. Large bodies of water soothe your spirit and you are naturally drawn towards them. You may find that photographing the sea is fulfilling for you. You can be very selfless when aiding other people. Your emotions may become unbalanced if you are unable to channel your energy creatively. Metaphysical or mystical subjects fascinate you and you may be talented in these fields. There are tendencies towards escapism from the harsh realities of life and you will spend a lot of time dreaming up a better situation for yourself and basking in this dream-world. However, be mindful that you do not end up abandoning the real world and your obligations to it; the only way to conquer you obstacles is to face them. Your kindness and sensitivity can be susceptible to a sad tale, giving others opportunity to use this to their benefit; be careful who you trust. Learn to restrain your intense feelings and keep your feet on the ground.
You are not the assertive type and may have trouble standing up for yourself when necessary. It is important that you find a way to fight for the things you believe in. Always go with what your gut instincts are telling you as you are highly intuitive. Keep away from mystical endeavours that can cause more harm than good, such as calling forth dark spirits, hypnosis, and fortune-telling. You are very spiritual but not always realistic. It is difficult for you to say no when you are tempted by something, so it would be best if you kept yourself out of these circumstances completely. You tend to absorb the energy that you are surrounded with and therefore need be conscious to avoid negative situations or people; stay in a warm, encouraging environment so as to keep your optimism up. Sometimes you feel the need to seclude yourself from the world and over-indulge. When you start to care for someone, you may be prone to viewing them in rose-coloured glasses and putting them up on a pedestal. When they eventually disappoint you, you can feel as though your entire world is crashing down.
It is possible that you will feel the need to escape through substance abuse or lying to create a better situation for yourself. At times you cannot tell the difference between what is true and what is not. Conflict is difficult for you and when something unpleasant must be confronted, you will often escape to one of your daydreams as a way to avoid it. Too easily will you believe what others have told you without a healthy amount of scepticism. Once someone has appealed to your emotions, they can pretty much tell you anything they wish and you would not doubt them. Try to be aware of this shortcoming and reserve your judgement after you have had some time to think things through rationally. If your feelings have been wounded, it is possible that you will create a false story to get out of the circumstance rather than deal with it directly. Because you are so sensitive, it is difficult for you to decipher when someone is genuinely being honest with you; people can fool you easily. Even the smallest of slights can deeply affect you. When you are feeling hurt in this way, your first reaction may be to remove yourself from others completely, even if this is only in your own mind. Your active imagination can interpret a situation differently than it truly is and when you eventually find the truth of the matter, you can sink into despair. A theme of dishonesty or trickery is likely with this placement, whether it comes from other people or from within yourself.
You are drawn to lifes many mysteries and enjoy uncovering hidden truths, even if there are some risks involved in doing so. You feel happiest when in the midst of an emotionally intense situation and therefore have no trouble handling circumstances where others are emoting dramatically, instead you dig to the heart of the issue and help to remedy the problem. Instinctively you understand that in order to be truly close to someone, emotions must be brought to the surface, no holds barred, and you strive to accomplish this intimate connection. You are not one to toy with someones feelings. Subjects pertaining to religion, science, mythical or mystical studies, sexuality, psychological evaluation, fiction based on scientific evidence, dying, the afterlife, or curing ailments are all fascinating for you. Your strong intuition helps you to truly comprehend what other people are feeling and going through. Gaining knowledge is pleasurable to you and you soak up new data like a sponge. Your feelings run much deeper than what you express to others. You work diligently and are dedicated to doing your job, even when much energy and will are required. Somehow you have a knack for figuring out just what the main issue is in any challenge and how to work through it. Your analytical mind would do well in the field of psychology or therapy, as you do well dissecting peoples thoughts and feelings accurately. Your will-power is exceptionally strong and you do not easily give up.
Emotionally you are fully charged and this intensity may have a negative impact on your health physically. Try to pace yourself and start to do one thing at time. It is not always easy to share living quarters with you as you often lack patience, become easily agitated with others, and behave in a grouchy manner. It is almost as though you go LOOKING for arguments. A bit like a spoiled child, if you do not get your way, you show your displeasure with fits of rebellious resistance. It would be beneficial for you to keep physically active and disperse the enormous amount of restlessness within you. You are naturally assertive and spirited, easily fighting for the things that you believe in or for others that are being taken advantage of. However, you must develop self-restraint if you are to reach your full potential. Competition spurs you on and you are driven to beat out all others in the game of your choosing or even just in general. Sometimes attracting with honey is far more conducive to accomplishing your goals than using brute force; be more diplomatic when interacting with people. You work diligently, bravely, and energetically. Try to be more lenient on yourself and others when something goes array as no one is perfect, not even you. Sometimes you have built up such a name for yourself that you do a complete turn-around and laze about, expecting your previous work will tide you over. Your anger may be explosive at times, especially when you are wounded on an emotional level, and you must find a way to restrain yourself. Try to think through your feelings before they take over. Your general lack of patience and constant rushing about makes you susceptible to accidental injuries, particularly involving heat or sharp objects. You can be reckless because you do not plan your actions ahead. You have a negative reaction to any sort of perceived restriction on you and can be a bit of a rule-breaker. As a leader, it is imperative that you curb your dominance or you will be seen as a tyrannical dictator rather than a leader. Vengeful thoughts are not healthy for you and you need to release your anger towards others for their offenses. It is likely that you will be wasteful with your financial resources and can be prone to dishonesty.
There are many different possibilities with this aspect and you may either provoke hostility in others due to selfishly putting your needs above the needs of others or create tension within yourself by desiring harmony with others while repressing your own needs. Your relationships may be challenging due to you going in full force one minute then holding back the next, or not being able to differentiate between love and lust, or possibly that you find yourself in partnerships where you and your partner both love and loathe each other. You may over-indulge in your sexuality instead of using your energy for creating something worthwhile. It is also possible that you will become enamoured with anyone that gives you the smallest amount of warmth.
Others are strongly drawn to your inner intensity and your powerful sexuality makes it virtually impossible for you to adhere to strictly non-physical friendships with the opposite sex. You create trouble in your relationships because you tend to care more for what you need than what your partner needs, as well as lacking patience when having to wait for something that you want. You are fickle in your feelings and when your partner is interested, you tend to withdraw but when you notice your partner acting disinterested, it only spurs you forward. You feel unable to hold back your frustrations with your partner and will often vent them either physically or verbally, possibly in a rather hostile manner. Once you have aired out these tensions, you will feel yourself in love once again. And while you have already forgotten anything had happened, your partner is left confused as to what occurred. At this point you are ready to go forward with them but now they are holding back and you are unsure as to the reason. You might feel disappointed in your relationships as you will be unable to comprehend what is wrong, often blaming the other person for their issues. When you are single, you wish to be in a relationship and when you are in a relationship, you wish to be single. It is difficult for you to handle your own emotions as they are unstable. Decisions do not come easily to you because of these erratic emotional patterns, causing you to be unsure of what you even believe. Try to control your quick temper by compromising with others instead. It might also be beneficial for you to invest in a gym membership so that you may work off whatever tensions are eating you up rather than taking them out on the people you most care for. In addition, your tendency to loathe the people you love needs to be transformed if you are to find happiness in your partnerships.
You can be unwilling to entertain another persons point of view, preferring to hold tight to your own. Objectivity may also be difficult for you due to self-centredness. You enjoy communicating to others about all the things you love, think, or feel but are disinterested in hearing about other people. You are witty, with a sharp mind and a hunger for knowledge and new stimulation. If you are unable to experience novel situations, you become disinterested in your life; consistent mental stimulus is imperative for you. You are well able to convey your views and can be adept at persuading others, though you need to apply a greater focus while listening to people. Often you are trying to figure out what your next point in the conversation will be and miss out on what was said. You run on a high voltage and may develop little nervous habits. Finding an outlet for your anxiety by use of your hands may alleviate this nervous energy. In addition, try to focus more on what other people are contributing to the situation rather than being immersed in your own talents.
You are emotionally intense and when you love someone, you love them with your all. Your powerful passions will either magnetically draw others to you or frighten them away. You have a great deal of charm and a way of attracting others to you almost without effort. This influence you have over others can cause you to easily use manipulation tactics, even if these actions are often subconscious. This placement allows you to either change your beliefs into something more beneficial to you, or to aid other people in changing their beliefs. You are likely to be creative and strive to promote a beautiful, peaceful, and comfortable environment. Your perception and compassion for others causes you to reach out and help people in whatever way you can.
You are romantically idealistic and often will fall in love with the idea of someone rather than for who they actually are. Your tendency is to believe someone is your perfect soulmate, incapable of doing wrong, which leads you into becoming disillusioned when they inevitably disappoint you. It is very difficult for you to recover when this occurs. It would be most beneficial for you to take time to get to know someone with both of your eyes wide open, before coming to any conclusions about them; the same is true about the world at large. Your idealism in regards to what relationships should be like tends to create conflict for your real-life partnerships.
Another possibility in this placement is having dreamt up some perfect imaginary partner and searching for this person your whole life, not realising that no one could ever measure up as this person could never realistically exist. Your spirit is wrecked when the day comes that you finally understand that your fantasy is unattainable. Rather than seeking someone that fits in with your fantasy, look instead for someone that, while flawed as all humans are, can still be a great partner for you. Idealism is great as long as it is tempered with realism. Strangely enough, while you can be very romantic and daydream about the adventures you may have with your soulmate, you find it difficult to actually commit to any relationship. You are often elusive in regards to romantic endeavours and insincere to both the person involved, and yourself.
Caution must be taken not to be drawn into an unhealthy partnership where one person is far more dependent on the other or where one gives too much of themselves or sacrifices their well-being just to appease the other. Equality in a partnership is crucial and you should not feel like you need to save the other person or that they must consistently aid you.
You are particularly reactive to your environment and prefer being in a beautiful, harmonious place where you can foster your creative talents in some way. You are naturally drawn to artistic things or people. You possess an otherworldly allure that people find captivating. Sensuality in all forms attracts you, as does anything out of the norm or which requires you to use your keen intuition. Love situations do not exactly fill you with security. Your delicate nature may be difficult to handle sometimes but you must do your best to push forward. Try to be understanding that everyone has their shortcomings but it does not always make them unworthy of pursuing. Do not expect your mate to know what you are thinking at all times, but rather explain to them the inner workings of you. It is not a sign that they do not care for you when they are unable to read your thoughts; express yourself directly.
A lesson for you to learn in this life is how to change your worldly beliefs into spiritual wisdom. You may find material assets falling away unexpectedly without explanation to show you that the material things you own are unimportant; the experiences you have during your life, and the wisdom you gain from them, are the only things that will matter when you are leaving this life. Develop your ability to care for others without expectations, forgive them their foibles, and let go of any resentment you have built up. Do not be bothered by small issues, though take care not to be stepped on by going to the other extreme and becoming far too accommodating. You are prone to escapism through substance abuse when life becomes hard for you to handle. Rather than avoiding your troubles, roll up your sleeves and face them. Only then will you find the inner strength you had within yourself all along. The more you tackle things directly, the easier it will all become.
You have a great deal of ambition and drive to succeed, but you often doubt yourself. You lack confidence in your abilities and are unsure whether others are going to respond to you positively. You have no faith in yourself to overcome lifes obstacles which is why you often work yourself to the bone trying to demonstrate that you are worthy. You are highly insecure and are scared that you will fail. Often you cling to the things you have because you feel that somehow they will be gone tomorrow. It is hard for you to bond with others as you tend to keep your emotions bottled up. Instead, you attempt to purchase peoples love and loyalty. However, that is not possible; you need to acquire this with a genuine connection. How can people see the wonderful things within you if you cannot see them yourself? Your insecurities are so pronounced that when you are close to someone, you require them to consistently reassure you that they care for you, leaving the relationship strained in the end. Perhaps re-think your idea of what it means to be emotionally secure. Deep down you believe that you need to be someone else so that people will accept you or care for you. Many times you feel as though you are the odd one out in a group situation and will act cold and reserved, when the truth is that it is actually very important to you that you are involved equally. Due to your sensitivity, you are likely to wall up and refuse to let anyone in instead of facing the possible hurts and vulnerability that may surface by opening up to someone deeply.
Being cautious and keeping yourself closed off emotionally makes it a challenge to form a bond with someone. Taking time for yourself to reflect and work on personal growth can help you become stronger emotionally as well as allow you to feel more secure, however you need to defeat the tendency to view isolation as rejection and the lonely feeling that comes along with that perspective. You are prone to feeling anxious, irritated, and depressed at times. It seems as though somehow life always throws a wrench in the works when you are trying to achieve something. You may feel like the universe is working in opposition to your best efforts and that you alone must do the heavy lifting for humanity. You are not living this life by yourself, there are others around willing to help you and care for you if only you would let them in. In a past life, you expressed your feelings in an open and loving manner and were cast off because of it. Now you are scared to try again, instinctively believing that somehow you will be disregarded and hurt once more. Your perspective on how to become emotionally secure is incorrect; it is not about others and what they do or dont do, but about how you see things. Despite your cool, reserved demeanour, inwardly you are very caring and crave to love and be loved. Of course there is a chance that your feelings may be harmed, but that is part of life and each painful experience can help you grow if you allow it to.
This placement stands out amongst the others as it has a particularly strong influence. At your best, you gain wisdom by going through something yourself, as even when you do something wrong the information you have gained will carry you. During the most emotionally difficult times in your life, you find a way to rise back up; nothing can keep you down for long and you persevere through your challenges. You are greatly aided by the mental drive this placement bestows.
You have a very active and fertile imagination which at times can really run away from you. In order to keep your sanity it will be necessary at times to discipline your thoughts and stop going overboard with far-out ideas. Your ambitions and activities may never be totally practical and concrete as you enjoy thinking about Utopia rather than the real-life world. You have a strong desire to act out your fantasies, dreams, visions and ideals. Artistic, musical or dramatic ability is within you if you can organize and discipline yourself to actually doing the work it takes to bring things to fruition. You have a mystical nature and you are curious as to the greater spiritual truths. Ordinary life seems drab and uninteresting to you, and you need to have some big dream or something larger than your own narrow personal interests to live for. The sea has a strong pull for you as you are renewed by its vibrations.
Confusion sometimes overcomes you regarding just exactly how and where to direct your energies and ambitions. There are times when you just drift through life, hoping that something or someone will spring up and put you on the right course. You need to learn how to make your own decisions and take responsibility for them. You have a passive side and at times lack the will power, physical energy, strength, and the fighting spirit to achieve your aims, stand up for your beliefs or to confront the people you need to be assertive with.
There is a great deal of powerful magnetic energy here with this aspect and you will find that you are drawn to people or circumstances in strange and unusual ways. Manipulation and fraud can be part of these experiences and you may be on both the giving and the receiving end of things. You may have difficulty recognizing or telling the truth and you may encounter people who are also this way. In any case you need to be careful about the sorts of people you meet and establish relationships with.
Accept responsibilities and discipline in this life. That is the message of this aspect. Do not try to run away from your troubles and especially do not try to avoid them through drugs or alcohol. Stay away from negative psychic influences such as Ouija boards, séances, hypnotism and mediums. There is an urgent need for you to be totally honest with yourself and others.
You achieve your aspirations by being dedicated, diligent, forward-thinking, persevering, structured, and on occasion through coincidental good fortune; you tend to get lucky in attaining your goals. People feel they can trust you to be counted on as you are a dependable sort. What you promise, you make sure to deliver. This constancy draws others to you. Whatever you require to accomplish your endeavours seems to come to you somehow, even if it is in the last moments. You are able to achieve equilibrium between what is possible and what is actual. You are able to work well on a team; however you usually feel more at ease when working on your own. You are patient in your work efforts and persist regardless the duration, as you know the effort will be rewarded in the end.
You are likely to experience uncertainty, despair, and insecurities, doubting yourself and your capabilities. The situations that you have experienced previously tend to stick with you more than most and you must learn to trust others. Your past life karma implies that you did not behave in the best manner with others and here is your chance to make amends and learn forgiveness when you are wronged. This placement insists that you find a way to treat others kindly despite of the way they treat you. Seclusion from the world will not aid you on your journey; you need to stay amidst the trouble and figure out the moral course of action as this is the only path towards conquering the coarseness within you. Confront the difficulties before you and the people who are creating struggles for you, have faith that this is the way to redeem yourself. Do not disregard the issues in your life, expecting that they will somehow disappearthey wont. The more you suffer the more you will learn to submit to the course fate has put before you, the more you give in to this the more likely you will be to reach enlightenment and redemption.
You are capable of aiding others by using your artistic imagination. Emotionally, you may express yourself by creating in some form, whether this be writing, dancing, art, or music. You are drawn to theoretical concepts and new age topics, as well as subjects having to do with the spiritual realm. Religious choirs tend to sooth you and inspire you and you try to help others to achieve the same experience. You possess a highly spiritual consciousness and should trust your gut instincts. People generally have faith in you to be a moral person and seek your counsel, as you are sympathetic and emotionally in tune. You may have accurate premonitions or visions that aid you in realising your dreams. Look for the true meaning in all of your endeavours.
The Planets in astrology symbolize what is being addressed. They behave as actors in a production. What is happening on stage? The signs in astrology are the way that the actors behave on stage. They ask the question how? How is the planet motivated? How are they living their life, in their highest good or in their shadow? The signs describe in detail how the actor might react, behave or conduct themselves.
Virgos have a strong need to keep their lives orderly, pure, and flawless. They tend to be quiet, efficient, diligent, dutiful, trustworthy, selective, prompt, exacting, thoughtful, and shy with a great talent for analysing all they come across (learn about compatibility with Virgo here). Virgos are reasonable and grounded, superb workers with high attention to detail. However they can also be difficult, cold, overly particular, negative, self-focused, and cynical, with a darker sense of humour and may be prone to melancholic mood swings. Virgos are often at their best when they are involving themselves in work that allows them to use their analytical abilities in the field of technology, caretaking, or any work with detailed tasks. They do not mind others taking the leading roles, as they are more concerned with providing quality service to people.
Virgos have an active mind, always questioning and searching for answers to their many curiosities. They enjoy problem solving, studying peoples behaviour, and examining their environment carefully. Virgos are adept at remembering even the things others may find insignificant. They prefer to keep active either physically or mentally, as they require new stimulation; lack of interesting new data and experiences can cause tension for a Virgo and they are known for being rather anxious.
When a Virgo makes a commitment, they keep it; their word is their bond. They are excellent administrative coordinators and proficient in maintaining an orderly environment. Virgoans have an innate fondness for organisation and tranquillity. They are hard on themselves to keep things just right and this tendency extends to others as well. If they are unable to find this perfection, a Virgo will become irritable and pick people apart for lacking whatever quality they believe the person should possess.
Virgos may be fretful as they are often looking for the ideal and trying to improve things. Even when something has been completed, they will think back on how it could have been made better. Unfortunately, this sort of worrying can impact their physical state, sometimes affecting their digestive track; keeping themselves optimistic will have a positive effect on their health. They can be prone to creating problems where there are none, especially with their health. However, most of the time their health is just fine as they tend to be on the lookout for ways to improve it. It is important for a Virgo to have time during the day to reflect and relax from all of their mental activity, regardless their age, and they do tend to age well.
A Virgo may find it challenging to convey their innermost feelings to another. Though they can be independent creatures, they enjoy having someone to care for and someone to show small, thoughtful acts of kindness to.
You like to keep your thoughts and secrets to yourself and may quietly dwell on perceived hurts and betrayals. You are naturally distrustful of others intentions and therefore do not expose your true emotions until someone has been thoroughly vetted, if even then. Emotional intimacy in personal relationships is difficult for you as you prefer keeping your feelings under lock and key; vulnerability feels somehow unsafe to you. All of your actions are expressed in an intense fashion, you care intensely and loathe intensely. You are passionate to the core; nothing is done halfway. This passion can express itself as a tendency to dominate your significant others or treat them as though they were objects that only you hold rights to; be mindful of the green-eyed monster. It is possible that your maternal parental figure was also dominating towards you. You find it difficult to let go of any past hurts or disloyalty and may harbour feelings of spite, bitterness, or remorse. Often these strong inner demons are kept secret. It is imperative that you vent these frustrations somehow and find a way to move beyond previous occurrences; forgiving others will be far healthier for you. Still waters run deep with you, and you would be dissatisfied with shallow, insincere interactions; you attempt to delve as far as you can into anothers essence. You will achieve a great deal if you can only learn self-control and restraint. You are driven, enthusiastic, self-sufficient, assertive, passionate, dedicated, and willing to wait as long as it takes to accomplish your goals. You also possess a great deal of personal magnetism. Sexuality or death may be on-going themes in your psyche.
Detail-oriented with a quick, sharp mind, you are able to execute tasks in a painstakingly careful and thorough fashion. You are effective, investigative, sensible, and reasoned; you keep your feet on the ground. Your practical, rational nature gives way towards a possible career in mechanical or technical work, where you need to possess a set of specific abilities. Abstract reasoning is not particularly interesting to you if it cannot be applied in a handy, concrete manner. Though you are detail oriented and enjoy investigating everything that comes your way, there is a likelihood of being blind to subtleties; you need things to be expressed to you directly rather than having to assume or guess at hints. You excel in endeavours that require an exact, accurate thought process, precise technique, or effective, structured administration. There is a tendency towards being too hard on others to meet your perfectionistic requirements. Your strengths include dependability, flexibility, methodical approach, and attention to detail. However, you are also prone to getting bogged down with a negative attitude and cynical, prejudiced behaviour as well as having a tendency to grumble and gripe when things are not to your liking. Be mindful that you do not lose the big picture when focusing on the details.
Deeply passionate, possessive love is one of your greatest yearnings. The connections you acquire tend to be full of intensity and emotional highs. However, there may be a tendency towards envy and trying to control the loved the one. The more involved you are, the more possessive you will become; be mindful that you do not destroy the very thing you so wish to keep. Love for you is an all-encompassing state and you will hold onto whoever elicits this response in you, come hell or high water. You expect your partners to live up to your high expectations of them. You may find yourself wary of the friendships your partner cultivates, believing that outsiders are not to be trusted. With you it is either all or nothing and if your partner ever deceives you, you can become ice cold, loathing them with matching intensity of the love that once was. When crossed, you do not give second chances. You are drawn to those who are a bit mysterious as you enjoy finding hidden caverns of depth. Others are magnetically attracted to your subtle allure and although there is much going on emotionally for you beneath the surface, you are not always comfortable expressing your feelings outright. You may prefer to channel some of your emotional intensity into spiritual pursuits. Developing self-discipline will go a long way for you. There is a past-life karma that insists you conquer matters regarding sex and transformation or rebirth. Venus in Scorpio heightens your artistic abilities and brings focus to hidden affairs, lustful fascinations, obsessions, and unwholesome pacts and treaties.
There is a well-developed sense of pride. You have a desire to achieve and be admired for these achievements, or for the person that you are. You like to be the winner, the one at the top. You dislike anyone telling you what you should be doing or to remain behind the scenes. You want to be seen and will often create drama in order to make sure that happens. You may arrogantly declare you are correct in every situation, as you dislike being wrong. You are driven, diligent, aggressive, dynamic, inventive, and full of energy; competition is highly appealing to you. Life may seem like one big game to be won. You seek praise and value honesty and acting in accordance to ones moral standards; nothing less is acceptable. Though you are extremely self-assured, there is a chance that you may feel insecure and self-protective, possibly acting abrasive, if your confidence is challenged. You are spontaneous, eager, motivated, and energetic. Once you have decided on the object of your desire, you will stop at nothing to win them over; displaying great passion and enthusiasm. When you have something you wish to express, you do so, no holds barred. However, be careful not to act foolishly and carelessly where money is involved; gambling can become an issue for you.
