There is no need to take it so personally for this is a discussion about Rulerships. Aquarius traditional Ruler Saturn is not known for warmth and empathy. Water signs are more emotional. There is no need to make such broad, throwaway comments about Venus in Cancer or Venus in Pisces people.
Oh, c'mon Blackbery. I take very little of what I read on this forum personally. I'm a triple Aquarian with sun-Mars trine Uranus, remember??? We're known for our detachment, right?
So where is your Venus? In a water sign?
You happened to pick all water signs that you feel are against you.
I spoke about why Venus cannot be exalted in Scorpio and there's a reason also why it cannot be exalted in Aquarius. It's too masculine, not sweet like sugar and pie like Libra. All air signs can be rather detached but Libra's detachment is very different from Aquarius detachment. Venus in Pisces are far from clingy. They love deeply, truly and often get hurt because they allow themselves to be vulnerable as they give over their egos to a higher form of love. That is the very opposite of insecurity. Overall, looking at the entire chart can give further clues as to how a person loves but the Rulership of Venus and dignities/fall of the signs make perfect sense if you truly understand what each sign represents. People really need to study Venus in greater depth.
I don't feel that water signs are against me. What an odd concept.
I don't think that a masculine sign is unloving. What an odd concept. Love isn't just for girls. Traditionally the air and fire signs are masculine, and the earth and water signs are feminine.
Astrologically, your information is incorrect. Venus is in detriment in Scorpio, because Scorpio is opposite the sign Venus rules: Taurus. Venus is exalted in Pisces and in its fall in Virgo. The domiciles go back at least to ancient Hellenistic astrology, and the exaltations go back even further to Babylon or ancient Egypt. Scholars disagree on which country had them first, but either way, exaltations pre-dated the horoscope, let alone modern concepts. (References available on request.) The dignities and debilities have nothing to do with modern personality stereotypes.
What you've given is a kind of psychological astrology overlay on some far older concepts.
I'm not personalizing anything, except that my personal experience sometimes provide an example or contradiction to what other people post. And sometimes I can't resist jabbing an elbow in the ribs of information that is patently incorrect.
Speaking of which, I've been married to a sun-Libra for the past 22 years. I could tell you a thing or two about Libra. Also about the notion that Pisces are motivated by a higher form of love.
Lovely. I've been studying astrology since about 1990, and have a few hundred books and articles in my home collection. And am a member of the Skyscript forum. How about you?
