Well, one can GUESS as to which aspects one is encountering during casual encounters.One cannot know for certain unless one has calculated the natal chart. If one spends enough time trying to guess astrology aspects, one can get quite proficient at it, particularly with certain aspects. I am very good at guessing the following aspects: Mars in Scorpio in a man, Venus conjunct Mercury, Moon trine Venus in a man, Leo Ascendant in anyone and Cancer Ascendant in a man. Of course, this is not like math homework. This is fun. I will tell you how I identify certain aspects. Then, you tell me about your adventures.
I love Mars in Scorpio in a man. I think Mars in Scorpio can take a frog and make him into the sexiest prince. Of course, one would have to see other placements to see if this “prince” were a true “keeper”, but, at first glance, the Mars in Scorpio man will have an kind of provocative sexiness. As I said, I have encountered Mars in Scorpio men of all stripes i.e all Sun signs, Venus signs etc.
Mars in Scorpio men have a certain “vibe” in common. They flirt in a subtle way. It could be an overt way, but it will be accompanied by a cool self possession. Most women find this hard to resist. Also, Mars in Scorpio men can make a female feel beautiful. Most importantly, look for smoldering vibes of sexuality. This defines Mars in Scorpio in a man, in my experience.
Moon trine Venus in a man equals charm. I have one working in my house right now. I had to ask his birth information and, of course, he was a Moon trine Venus. He loves women. You feel that he could be comfortable with “girly” things like talking on the phone or going shopping. He, indeed, did have many female friends, which is classic for this aspect. He has a natural charm. One feels very special when he graces one with his time and attention. His Mars is in Aquarius, so he does not have those smoldering sexual vibes. He “feels” warm and he feels safe. He feels as if one could curl up next to him and watch a movie and laugh and share. One of the premier aspects for charm is Venus trine Moon.
There are people who seem as if they don’t know how to “fix themselves up”. These natives may have Moon square Venus. They may not have a good sense of what makes them look good with clothing, hair style etc. They may, also, not be very comfortable in social situations. However, one would really need to see the rest of the chart to truly determine.
The prize for raw charisma goes to Mars conjunct Venus. I am not attracted to women, so would not think of a female in terms of sexuality, so I can only identify this aspect in men. When I first saw Willie Robertson in a movie, I was astounded at his charisma. Sure enough, he has an exact conjunction of Mars and Venus in Gemini.
The Leo Ascendant I can identify in both sexes. They kind of draw all the breath out of the room. In simple terms, this is the most self centered Ascendant. They usually talk about themselves more than do other people. On the plus side, they are excellent entertainers. They love the spotlight.
When I see a kind of repressed sexuality in a man, I think of Venus in Scorpio. When I use the word “repressed”, it is not exactly the right word. It is more of “held back” sexuality, as if the person is afraid to be direct about his attraction to you. He does have sexy vibes, but it is as if he is waiting for an “invitation” to approach you, whereas as Mars in Scorpio waits for no one, so to speak.
Venus in Virgo is very sensitive to tastes and smells. So, if you notice this trait in someone, it is the nature of Venus in Virgo. It is not his or her fault. Find out if certain foods bother him and try to avoid them. I have known Venus in Virgo natives who get physically sick from a single, small ingredient in food, such as baking soda, as was the case with one person I know.
Moon and Mars in Cancer are my aspects. I am very loyal, probably to a fault. If I love you, I will protect you, above all reason. This has gotten me into trouble. This has gotten me very humiliated, but I chalk it up to learning experiences.I am not sure if this trait is my Moon or Mars or a combination of both. The other side to Cancer is that IF they cut you off, you are, likely, gone forever.
Sun in Capricorn seems to have strong shoulders on which one can lean. They have a very “solid” feeling about them, as if they could hold up the “weight of the world”. If any Sun sign feels stable, it is Sun in Capricorn.
The person who can be very realistic( i.e not seeing through rose colored glasses) when it comes to human emotions and to life, itself, is the Capricorn Moon. I do not say this in a judgemental way. I admire this trait a great deal. Moon in Capricorn is very practical when it comes to life. They are not naive. They can assess a situation with an unbiased eye. They can face reality “straight on”.
On the other hand, the person who sees the “prince”, time and time again, when he is, in fact, the frog, is Neptune conjunct Venus( or Neptune square or oppose Venus). This native seems to make the same mistake, again and again, when it comes to love.
The “stink eye” aspect is Pluto conjunct the Ascendant. If you mess with him, you will regret it. He has a strong personal presence and he asserts his personal power. Now, we don’t know what he is like inside, but he bears respecting like you respect a cop when he stops you for speeding.
There are some asteroid aspects I can identify. People, often, get angry when I identify them in them, but such is life when one is honest. You know? The one that strikes me first is Eris conjunct the Ascendant or North Node. This person is supremely annoying. Do you know that feeling when a fly is buzzing near your head. BINGO
Another asteroid aspect I can identify is Lucifer. This is pride, not evil, per se. If the native has Lucifer conjunct the Ascendant or North Node, they seem to love the “one ups man” game. In other words, anything you can do, they can do better.
The asteroid Eros conjunct the Ascendant makes for a very erotic person. This is,usually, rather subtle. It is kind of like black lace peeking out from under a skirt——no homo.
