Venus in Aries: Anish Kapoor

February 19, 2017

Continuing the series on artists with Venus in Aries.

The picture tells the story really. Anish Kapoor has Venus at 0° Aries — the Ur degree, the alpha … the very beginning of the whole Zodiac. And well, is here is a great big Mons Venus in Aries own colour.

Kapoor loves red.

No birth time so this is a sunrise chart.

It’s nice that he has North Node in Capricorn — a sign which often seems to feature in sculptor’s charts. One suspects his relationship with India must be pretty complex (but a source of inspiration) with Uranus on the South Node. It’s interesting that he manages to be extremely intellectual and popular — perhaps that is thanks to the Jupiter-Moon conjunction in Gemini (although one has to be a bit careful with that since there’s no birth time) trining Neptune in Libra.

I’ll leave you to ponder the chart and watch the film, but it’s certainly the voice of a Piscean artist — he talks about illusions, dreams and actually having nothing to say. Curious and intriguing.

The work ‘Has to find a life for itself, has to stand out for itself’ how Aries is that?!
I didn’t know about Kapoor at all. Thank you.

Consultations

Consultations

I do love personal consultations.

I talk to people as far away as New Zealand, Hawaii and the Phillipines thanks to the wonders of the web. Oh and my friend next door pops in for an update every now and then. If you come in person, you do get a cup of tea and possibly a biscuit, as well as an astrological conversation, of course, but most people consultations take place via Skype or FaceTime.
