In Vogue: Jupiter-Venus Conjunction Today

November 13, 2017

There’s a lucky conjunction at 7° Scorpio between lovely Venus and munificent Jupiter. You might want to choose to spin the wheel of fortune, or just indulge in some beauty. To help you with the latter. I’ve excavated some old pictures from British Vogue (December, 2010).

How well do you think they captured the signs? I think some are lovely and original, and others are way off mark: for example, Aquarius is not a water sign — and Sagittarius is a fire sign!

I love dramatic Taurus, Cancer as a hermit crab, earthy Virgo and Scorpio as a phoenix/scorpion. As for Pisces in the trash with her fish-shoes flying…

Wow! These are wonderful…probably the most expensive, dramatic, and over-the-top zodiac-sign portrayals I’ve ever seen, even though they’re fashion spreads. I’ve seen Sag represented with horses, I suppose the Jupiter ruler. Aquarius the water bearer, I guess, but otherwise I don’t ‘get it’. I noticed The Cure’s “into the sea, you and me” as the Aquarius header:
“Let’s go and throw all the songs we know
Into the sea, you and me”, The Cure, “Lovecats”…does sound rebellious like an Aquarius, LOL. Pisces’ shoes and stockings are the best and Pisces rules feet.

I love these photographs, everyone of them !

Aquarius being a watersign is an error that is often made. In the Middle Ages astrologers knew there was a fifthe element, being ether.
I learned as a baby astrologer that the sign of Aquarius is about soundwaves.
For me this is so obvious because my Dad was a soundtechnician for the Philips Company and therefore I saw this sign everywhere I looked. Aquarius rules hearing and sound.

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.
