Oh, what a topic. I came upon it after talking to a family member. He is not a BS er. He says I am. Well, I don’t lie and I try to walk with integrity, but I can keep the chat going in most situations. In the game of life, one needs to be able to suss out what is UNDER the surface of things. This trait has a name–subtext. BS is something different. It is a way to keep moving with the flow of life and not let the tide take you away. More specifically, it is a way of managing yourself in situations, such that you are not taken advantage of by others, a way of holding your own, a way of coming out standing without letting other people push you under the water. Let’s see the aspects that make for someone who can roll with the best of them.
1. Mercury in Gemini
Mercury in Gemini has a lightning fast mind. He has a wit to match. Due to his natural intelligence, he can, usually, tell if you are trying to take advantage of him. He will, usually, talk you around what you were trying to do and come out ahead.
2. Mars in Scorpio
He is a BS er when it comes to talking people into bed. When it comes to sweet talking for his own purposes, he is the king. Don’t let a Mars in Scorpio sweet talk you into anything you will regret later. Remember the song,”Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?” Chances are he won’t.
3. Mercury Conjunct Neptune
This is a classic aspect for a liar but not all those who have this aspect are classic liars. Some may fudge the truth. Some may simply be excellent storytellers, but I would say that the BS meter would be high with this aspect.
4 Bilk Conjunct the Sun
Someone close to me has this. He tries to sell me all forms of the Brooklyn Bridge, but I know he has this aspect, so I, rarely yield. Bilk has to do with trying to take advantage of someone in the arena of money. This aspect would not be a thief, per se, i.e steal from the cash register. He would be more of a schemer. He may want people to invest in businesses which would prove to be spurious.
5. Lie Conjunct the Sun
Lie is a more generalized asteroid. How they lie, I am not sure. However, it will, likely, be in some form and in some arena in life, so watch out. Pay attention to the house placement. That could give you clues about the arena in which the person lies, but it may not. Watch and see and then report back to the Astrological Sleuth—ME.
6.Sun in Sagittarius
Sagittarius can usually charm the stripes off a zebra. They, often, have a silver tongue. They are disarming because they may seem to be too innocent to do any real damage. This is not true. Their main arena of damage may be the human heart, but they do seem to be able to talk their way out of anything.
7. Venus in Pisces
Venus in Pisces seems to be a master of sweet talking, which is a SKILL. Words are a potent weapon in their hands. Whether or not they use their gift for good or evil can be seen by the rest of the chart, but they sure can make you feel special( Hi Dan)
8. Venus in Gemini
Venus in Gemini can be a master flirt. They can make you run after them. You are fine until you look back and see a crowd running in the same direction. Do beware that Venus in Gemini flirts like others breathe. Don’t believe all of what they say. Believe a fraction. How much is that fraction? I will never tell.
9. Medusa Conjunct the Ascendant
This little lady tantalizes you until she gets you into her web. Then, she turns all cold and spidery and you end up like the mate of the female black widow—–*SHUDDER*
10. Neptune Conjunct the Ascendant
This native may not BS you, per se. He, simply, does not know who he is. James Gandolphini, the iconic Tony Soprano, has this aspect. He was an actor who reached the pinnacle of his art. However, these natives may have a severe identity crisis. Who are they really? If they don’t know, how can you?
