Those of you following this Venus in… series will know already that Venus is not entirely about how you look. For that we look at the Ascendant and planets aspecting it. Venus though can tell us what makes you attractive, or even what makes you beautiful.
So it’s pretty interesting that the first three names that came up on my database when I typed in Venus in Pisces were: Michelle Obama, Jesus Christ and Martin Luther King. Presumably we can discount Jesus, since last I knew there was some controversy over his exact birthdate, so the next one down is Kurt Cobain. Aside from FLOTUS, that’s three men who were sacrificed.
Venus in Pisces… universal love, boundless love… Venus is said to be exalted in Pisces, the sign of sacrifice and victimhood.
But Pisces is also mutable sign — and there’s quite a bit of variety here. It’s a sign as changeable as wind on water and its impossible to pin down an exact look here, but there is a feel of emotional power that is very seductive.
Michelle Obama, Capricorn Sun, Venus at 0° Pisces. One of the charms of Michelle Obama is despite her Capricorn cool, emotions ripple across her face.
Dr Martin Luther King. Capricorn Sun
Kurt Cobain. Sun in Pisces
With Cobain we come to the dimple.
Ewan McGregor. Aries Sun.
Dimple plus the bluest eyes.
John Travolta. Aquarius Sun.
Jack Kerouac. Pisces Sun. I think his eyes were blue too.
And now a whole lot of blue eyes.
Lucy Lawless. Aries Sun (obviously, she’s a warrior princess)
Kirsten Dunst. Taurus Sun
Barbra Streisand, Taurus Sun.
Vincent Van Gogh, Aries Sun
You don’t have to have the blue eyes though. But there is something about being a little kooky — and the blue eyes.
Zooey Deschanel, Capricorn Sun.
Reese Witherspoon. Aries Sun.
Shirley Maclaine. Taurus Sun. Perhaps the original kooky-sexy girl.
As well as elves, there are mermaids…
Ursula Andress. Pisces Sun
Diana Ross. Aries Sun.
Geena Davis. Aquarius Sun & Neptune Rising.
What sheer Hollywood glamour — aided by Neptunian fairy dust.
Michelle Pfeiffer, Taurus Sun
Kristen Stewart, Aries Sun
… and Emma Watson, Aries Sun
… How about some dirty-sexy men?
Serge Gainsbourg. Pisces Sun. Although… he may exemplify one of the dangers of Venus in Pisces since he turned into an ordinary dirty old man.
Benicio del Toro. Pisces Sun
… and women
Anais Nin. Pisces Sun
Penelope Cruz. Taurus Sun
Nastassja Kinski. Aquarius Sun. Here she is as Tess.
Perhaps the ultimate Venus in Pisces character is Tess of the D’Urbervilles, the beautiful innocent, corrupted by society, who is eventually sacrificed. Interestingly, Thomas Hardy, who wrote Tess, had Uranus at 20° Pisces — exactly on Nastassja Kinski’s Venus. She will always be associated with this role.
