If you’ve been following these “Venus In…” posts for a while, you will know that your Venus sign does not necessarily describe what you look like — that is more for the Ascendant  or ruling planet — but how you are attractive.

Over the year, quite a few people have asked why I’m not putting up pictures of ordinary people or less beautiful ones. In fact, I’ve chosen people whose attractiveness is important to their careers — actors, singers, models — precisely because they are a pleasure to the eye (often not always). These are people working that Venus.

Of course, Serena Williams and Tiger Woods would both be champions without being attractive, but a powerful, toned body does seem to be a bit of a Venus in Scorpio thing. And these two are both lovely to watch partly because of their gracile strength. It’s also noteworthy that they’re both extremely focused, a Scorpio characteristic.

Tiger Woods. The greatest golfer ever? I wouldn't know, but he looks super. Sun in Capricorn, Virgo Rising.

Now, are you ready for some torsos?

Here goes.

Scorpio is one of the warrior signs, the sign of the ninja, the assassin, the lone wolf (or just Wolverine).

The most compelling action hero this century is Jason Bourne, the ex-assassin who is always one step ahead of his pursuers.

But there’s no reason to think that only men can play this role. Venus in Scorpio is an action heroine too.

Here’s one of the most famous torsos of the 60s. Morrison ended up overdoing the Venus in Scorpio.: heroin killed him. I’ve written elsewhere about Venus and sugar, brown or otherwise.

Fashions change. These days, male pin ups are pumped up, musclebound. But Venus in Scorpio is not all about strong bodies. Morrison’s charm was his intensity, his poetic vision and a kind of purity. Reminds me of the late lamented Jeff Buckley, another casualty of talent.

Morrison also had raw power, which we can see in some other Venus in Scorpios — along with the same eagley-snakey, mesmerising gaze.

Venus vs Neptune? LOL! Eye candy is always delicious, but can induce hunger.
