For an individual with this Astrological signature, an emotional investment in personal relationships leads one to the proper tools for self-improvement and self-expression. When one’s self-esteem is well-developed, the immediate sense of how they can be of value to others becomes apparently clear.

Within this cosmic makeup, themes of being energized by service to humanity emerge,  as well as experiences which require one to cut the ungainly parts from themselves in order to become more efficient and refined in one’s personal endeavors.

The filter through which life’s theme is processed is a wide-angle lens.

Ideally, your path consists of pushing boundaries to constantly widen one’s window of the world and putting all of the pieces together in an eclectic collage of understanding. You’re one to look for the “signs” about how the universe works and extract what you believe is a deeper meaning from experience. Ultimately, the goal for you is to seek truth wherever you can find it and it’s important that you make your vision as large as possible as to how this can be accomplished.

Life is to be led pondering the enduring, open-ended questions and the information gathered is to be distilled for understanding and retained for the sake of helping one’s relationships to operate with an increased level of competence and responsibility.

Your nourishment comes through engagement with other people and your aim is to draw them out of themselves so you can then see how they can be more easily helped. The danger here is offering unsolicited advice and “wearing out your welcome.”

Learning discrimination in offering your insights is a key lesson to be learned for you. If your inclination for rational analysis and social intelligence are working effectively, identifying “teachable moments” should provide a sense of enjoyment for you as well as a feeling of accomplishment.

It bears consideration that there can be a pronounced strength to relate to others irrespective of their station in life. However your capacity for “critical thinking” must be used in a manner which conveys a genuine and kind desire to be of help as opposed to actual criticism, unless it’s directed toward the issue at hand and not the person.

You have the potential to gain mental distance, as to get an objective view and also to play the long game and consider how the parts affect the whole.

Where intimate relating is concerned, intellectual stimulation is a must. You prefer the rapport which is more “civilized” in nature as opposed to half-baked conversations which have no grand ideas to ponder. What some may refer to as snobbery, you call sophistication.

Your life purpose is enveloped in themes of utilizing refinement and intelligence to propagate and advance humanitarian ideals, which are also revolutionary in nature. Also, galvanizing groups of people to assist you in your cause(s).

The fuel which maintains your vitality is comprised of the questioning of socially implanted “authorities” in order to more fully claim your personal one. You also have an emotional need to form relationships where you can take others on that journey with you. This needs to be done strategically.

It would benefit you to think about the use of subtlety when it comes to introducing your originality to others.  Referencing Robert Greene’s law 38 in his book “The 48 Laws of Power”

“Think as you like , but behave like others”.

Greene goes on to state:

“It is far safer to blend in and nurture the common touch. Share your originality only with tolerant friends and those who are sure to appreciate your uniqueness.”

What you can learn by exploring this idea is the difference between the manner in which something is presented and the ultimate outcome it may have.

With this blend, you’re encouraged to employ futurism in your thinking. It’s important to never underestimate the power of getting your “foot in the door”. This is far more important than feeling you have to make a radical display of doing so.  Your impact can be more deeply felt on the back-end and the results you generate can then speak volumes.

With this Venus/Mars combination in mind, we immediately delve into the world of feelings, emotions, relational security and ideals.

The application of will is directed toward harmonizing and developing rapport. With a Venus sign ruled by the Moon and a Mars sign ruled by Venus, there’s an appreciation of sentimentality, affection, and the smaller, yet more intimate gestures which bring us  closer to another human being. The ability to Intuit and just “remember” the preferences and needs of the “other” is highly pronounced.

For an individual with this cosmic makeup, emotional safety is about establishing avenues of trust and creating a safe haven where one can bear intimate feelings without being judged, ridiculed, threatened or manipulated. To engage in a mutual effort (teamwork) to help something grow, whether it’s a relationship or business partnership is a major part of this person’s life’s work.

There is a natural dynamic tension with this blend which can be illustrated by a person constantly having to adjust their approach to people because they struggle, due to sensitivity, with how to deliver feedback which may “upset the apple cart”. While they would like things to remain safe, there is a heavy burden of guilt should they become dishonest.

An important lesson is that one can’t be fearful of their own transparency as it undermines the true kindness which needs to be the foundation of all of their important relationships.

You can’t just brush your instincts to the side while grappling to find a more “cerebral” explanation.

A fair question may be:

What happens when you have to express certain thoughts and feelings to your partner that may upset the equilibrium in the relationship? 

Sexually, there’s an expectation of coziness and private lust. What excites you is to “flip through” a portfolio containing a juicy gamut of feelings in service of a complete experience. There’s an emphasis on shared enjoyment and “returning the favor” in the name of true partnership. The erotic produces an emotional charge.

For you to be fulfilled, your emotions must link up with your ideals.

Here, we have the valuing of all that’s ethereal blended with a passion for ideals. A portrait of an individual with Venus in Pisces and Mars in Libra would be painted with idealism of the highest order and an uncanny ability to see the best in other people and life in general.

A pronounced sense of universality permeates the psyche, where one would rather create bridges than borders. To some, it’s fascinating that the things which bring you the most joy are those which can’t be measured or have a boundless scope.

Your power of attraction lies in the unconditional acceptance of others and a passion for justice. Some of your wishes for humanity are: that they’re treated fairly, and that they receive copious amounts of peace and love in their lives.

Difficulty arises for you when your lenses become too rose colored for your own good. You suffer mainly because there’s an inclination to create the version of reality which produces the least amount of pain, and when you do that, there are no clear warning signals of the danger which has firmly copped a squat on your front porch.

There’s a tremendous amount of energy which is applied to maintaining your personal relationships, and rightfully so. In fact, you have a special talent for meeting your true desires through the actions of others.

People seem to naturally WANT to do things for you, and you have a way of appealing to the self-interest of others with charm and diplomacy. If there’s going to be any type of fight on your watch, it will be one against outward displays of coarseness and ugliness in personal behavior.

It needs to be noted, however that there are costs to pay for the “peace at any price” philosophy and those charges manifest for you largely on an internal level.

Although you feel that harmonizing may be your best option, you can easily create a bottleneck for your true feelings which feels like an emotional traffic jam. As a result, you develop animosity for whomever or whatever is in question, and that very peace that you were seeking to preserve morphs to a passive aggressive state, like the person at the office who sends the snide e-mails with smiley faces at the end.  In this state, your words are conveying one thing while your actions are speaking loudly and clearly in a contradictory fashion.

To truly reach your calling, both your Venus and Mars principles need to be honored. So, it’s important that you own your desires while also understanding the manner in which you need to apply your energies to obtain them.

In relationships, you have the potential to be a TRUE partner who offers emotional support and empathy. Even in times of conflict, a “fair fight” is important to you, and it’s wise to realize that conflict isn’t a dirty word and facing it squarely without avoidance can often bring you to a deeper place which is complete with a  greater degree of understanding  between your partner and yourself.

One of your challenges is addressing the theme of self-sacrifice in love. When it comes to healthy compromises that you make as a partner, this can breathe life-giving elixir into relationships. On the flip side it’s important to realize that there are no gold medals for martyrdom and no parades for the long-suffering.

Equating how much and how often you volunteered yourself for unequal treatment with loving another can be unhealthy and emotionally deceiving. Conversely, judging another person’s love for you by how much they’re willing to give up can be equally problematic.

At best, you beautify the world around you through your commitment to an all embracing love that few people, in comparison, ever get the opportunity to experience. You’re a unifier, clever strategist and true champion of justice. At worst, you become perpetually frustrated because you avoid the voice which prompts you to address challenges with other people directly, which dishonors your emotional needs and volunteers you for taking whatever another person thinks that you deserve.

The drive for deep involvement and the seeking of emotional honesty in people and situations is the vehicle through which you navigate life. The lens through which you process experience is one with acute sensitivity to raw truth and undercurrents.

Simultaneously, this facilitates a serious need to develop and maintain your emotional integrity, i.e. being exactly about what you espouse. This entire dynamic is fueled by the alliances that you form with others, as you’re energized by relating in its most authentic sense.

In fact, the quality and state of your relationships at any given time is an accurate barometer of what you’re addressing or failing to confront within your own psyche. The gains that you witness regarding your ability to examine yourself objectively and without judgment will be directly reflective of the level of emotional maturity that you’ve reached.

Because you desire to live a life of depth and all that comes with it, this may require you to create a space within yourself that you visit when you feel that you’ve been wronged, disappointed or betrayed by others. This is your inner sanctuary where you process and then let go as to prevent toxic buildup of emotions.

You have no problem being “out front”, as this combination indicates strong purpose and a shrewdness which can prove to be strikingly effective in artfully managing or guiding others because you have a talent of recognizing underlying motivations as well as an eye on the practical.

Ideals illuminate your life and your strategic sense and social intelligence can certainly bring you far in meeting them. However, it’s advisable to understand the lengths you will or won’t go to achieve your aspirations, as an abuse of power and obtaining advantages by underhanded means is a disordered expression of this combination.

Here, the mental orientation is crystal clear.

The core life energy inherent in this blend is about balancing one’s self acceptance with social approval; weighing the need to actively craft one’s identity and seeing self through the eyes of others.

This is reflected in the personality form  where the core emotional needs are related to diversification and adaptability. You’re nourished by having your hands in a little bit of everything and understand what it means to have competing priorities.

Your thrust into the world is navigated by a “vehicle” which is inclined to explore alternate ways of being which defy social conventions and challenge the status quo.

Active social circulation and sincere curiosity about others serves as a gateway to forging the interpersonal relationships which are needed to maintain your vitality.

Taurus Sun, Libra Moon, Sagittarius Rising

Your vitality is fueled through the enjoyment of the senses and optimally, your life is experienced at an earthy and tangible level. What you can immediately and decidedly “put your hands on” serves as a reliable  barometer of authenticity.

In addition, you need to feel like everything is “right where it should be” in your life. Not so much of an exact equal balance, but like a recipe, in a proportion that pleases you and is agreeable to your life goals.  You’re nourished through an orientation to the “other”.  Rarely frightened by opposing points of view, you’re more likely to seek understanding as to use your newly discovered insights as a means to develop a more congruent self.

Your lens for processing experience is one of a teaching and learning orientation. Everything is approached in a manner which questions and seeks meaning with the goal of placing things into a larger context in order to soak up holistic understanding . You relish at the thought of life as an ever broadening  panorama. Your world is looked at telescopically and opportunities to incorporate eclecticism are frequently sought.

Establishing the type of grounding which will support a bold and fearless dive into the larger social arena is key.

With the Sun in Libra and the Moon in Aquarius, your life is infused by aspirations of maintaining harmonious relationships with others, but this isn’t to come at the expense of your own individuality.  To sacrifice who you are, at your essential core, in order to please or placate is working backward.

You may find yourself with the need to find an avenue of expression for your many eccentricities.  One of your tasks is figuring out how to give “life” to your quirks and have meaningful encounters with others in the process.

Your core energy centers around maintaining equilibrium, and one of the most effective ways in which this is achieved is to pursue your own individuation, as that fulfills the needs of your personality.  While you may want to feel part of a “group” to feel sane, or even thought of as a “nice”, kind and just person, your ability to distinguish yourself FROM any group is also of paramount importance.

Issues of social consciousness and the welfare of humanity pique your interest and you can be suited to delve into them and serve as one who provides a contribution which is both diplomatic and organizationally effective.

In intimacy, it’s important to realize that differences between people can be celebrated rather than used as “bait” for discord.

Contained within this specific astrological signature is the emotional need to circulate both intellectually and socially. One is nourished through maintaining an openness to fresh information and a variety of interests. This orientation supports and reflects aspirations of social interactions and friendships based on equality, kindness and good will.

In this thing called life,  you’ve been blessed with the type of navigational device which requires deep and significant interactions and involvement with the world. Inherent in this journey is a risk factor where your vulnerability is concerned. However, there are also the potential rewards of a greater self-awareness and the neutralization of the fear that comes with authentic self-revelation.

At the heart of it all, your Sun, Moon and Ascendant blend contains a youthful curiosity about everyone and everything, and it’s important to become comfortable in your own skin and with your own versatility as it can prove to be of great benefit to you and ultimately help you shine as the type of person who’s welcomed into diverse social circles. Much of this is dependent on the sincerity of your interest in others. Being genuine will take you far. However, a hidden agenda of controlling  everyone around you so won’t feel “unmasked” is sure to derail you.

While not readily apparent on the surface, you enter the world with a desire to be deeply known, but there’s a reoccurring thought of how much it will “cost you”. After all, being naked in front of others is not your forte.

When the energy invested in self-protection is wisely transmuted, allowing your raw feelings to surface without labeling it as a loss of strength, you’ll be that much closer to tapping into a wider range of your human adaptability and can move more fluidly and gracefully , thereby “loosening your grip” and allowing your personal expression to be your art.

This facet of your makeup can prove to be especially important in your personal relationships. It’s worth reiterating that your navigational device is honed with potential laser sharp and piercing “spidey senses”, which tempt you to “call it like you see it.” because you feel as if you can’t live with yourself any other way.

It would benefit you considerably to realize that everyone isn’t built this way and your astro signature contains more than enough adaptability to skillfully temper your approach and dole out your insights at a level that’s appropriate for whomever you’re dealing with at the time.

Astrologer Jodie Forrest states:

“For Scorpio rising, life should be confronted with honesty, intensity a commitment to deep self-awareness and a willingness to examine all taboos. This doesn’t mean to break all of them. It just means that no area of life or death should be barred from the laser sharp scrutiny of this ascendant.”

When the Libra Sun and Gemini Moon are synthesized into the equation, the message is to learn to enjoy the process of discovery and while on the journey, forming relationships which are conducive to exploring ALL of your dimensions without unhealthy fear, judgment or excessive and counterproductive self-protection.
