Sun Sign Survey: Smoking

Filed in Sun Signs

Chic woman smoking

Is there any link between smoking and astrology? This pic makes me think of what would have happened to Winona Ryder in Heathers had she grown up and become an architect. Anyway, which Sun Sign is most likely to smoke? Do you? Would you? Did you? Could you?

Smoking is technically Mars-Neptunian as it is an addiction, but there is probably more to it than that. I don’t but I did once. At the time, it felt like Air, and I imagined that it calmed my nerves and helped me think. But, it’s bad, obviously. My Gemini G.P. puts it up there with wheat & dairy, lol. But does it go more with any Sun Sign or astrological signature?

I know several Scorps and Aquarians who – honestly – go from Vipassana for ten days & then straight to some hole of shame for a smoking binge. An Aquarian male claims that it is crucial for his astrology chart “to earth him.”

I also have a girlfriend in love with a Scorpio Ex-Commando who takes icy cold showers, eats things like grapefruits and prunes for brek with black coffee, abuses laxatives if he feels “fat” and smokes as if the world would cease to turn should he stop. I surmise that they are also both signs who hate to have the government telling them to do anything. They’d think it’s a conspiracy. Both these people like to chain smoke, seethe and point out crap that various governments have pulled over the years. They ask why they should trust a government health warning?

My ex, The Uranian tied it in with his Bolshevik stance but only if they were roll your own cigarettes. That – to him – was an important distinction. I know a Scorpio woman who thinks it doesn’t count so long as it is after midnight.

Least likely to smoke: Scent-aware Taurus and Libra Sun Signs.

So, thoughts? Let’s establish smoking and astrology theories.

I think that is why when you try & quit, you can feel sometimes really angry. All those emotions have been blocked/suppressed by smoking and then when you stop that, they naturally come out to purify the heart chakra.

I am normally a very peace loving gentle libran and finally quit a couple of years ago after smoking for over a decade. Years ago once when I tried to quit, I punched a hole in a wall I had so much angry stuff suddenly come up. Totally out of character for me. But felt good at the time!

And those who can see chakras say smoking creates black/dark energy around the heart

Really interesting the grief thing that everyone is mentioning. I didn’t some for years and years, couldn’t even bring myself to inhale, didn’t bother all through years of college and social drinking. Wasn’t the smug non-smoker at all, never told anyone to stop smoking around me, but was inwardly pleased that I wasn’t addicted to anything, and I didn’t feel like I *could* get addicted. Fast-forward to now, parent died, my longterm relationship died, I’m back at college and had a major depressive episode, nearly suicidal. Took up smoking. Don’t do it every day but 2-3 most days, half a… Read more »

The grief connection is the heart chakra. Smoking artificially feeds/stimulates the heart chakra thru the lungs.

i have head the saying ‘when you smoke you are never alone’ as in the cigarette is your friend. i smoke once in a while and if i buy a pack never smoke more than about 10 (over 3 months) before i throw them away. i go for months and months without touching one then have a little upset somewhere and might have a couple. last major breakup smoked almost a pack a day for 6 weeks or so, barely touched the sides….mind you i was mostly just lighting it and then staring at it, watching it burn as i… Read more »

Capricorn with Scorpio rising, and Mars and Neptune conjunct in the first house. Smoking is soooo bad for you! And not in a good way. Anyhoo, I covertly smoked from around 21 to 26. Didn’t smoke when I was pregnant. Took up smoking about a year later, since my husband did as well. We smoked rollies. Of course it’s an important distinction! For the last few years, I have been quitting for around half the year. And smoking the other half. Seriously. It is much harder to quit when you have a spouse who smokes. However, I am now resolved… Read more »

Wiona Ryder rocks- she’s a bit kooky, tomboyish and gorgeous, a rebel and a bit naughty like a pixie (stealing! oh no!).
But, love her energy.
I don’t smoke but my alter ego thinks she does.
It’s glamorous for photo shots and film- just sexy to watch beautiful film-noir movies with smoking femme fatales.
I don’t judge if others smoke- I am a big girl if it offends I walk away.

i think that what you are saying is the addiction talking, why on earth would the patches make you ill. you may well be sensitive to most drugs but the patches are just nicotine and as far as i can remember from long ago research, nicotine is not in and of itself a particularly bad drug, (in fact can be very good!) it’s just the delivery method that’s bad! so my tip is/are: read Allen Carr’s book, focus that famous cap stubborness on the problem, make the whole thing a project, do lots of nice things for yourself like massage… Read more »

Patches are evil! They just get you addicted to a product created/marketed by a pharmaceutical company.

I quit after 14 yrs on & off – pack a day/rollies etc. Never used patches – the thought of them makes me feel ill. Friend who used them said she had nightmares at night when she had them on.

Acupuncture/chinese herbs was what helped me quit for good 2 yrs ago… and now as much as I very, very infrequently want to smoke, I just can’t, makes me feel sick.

I totally wasn’t going to comment on this one until I saw the bit about Caps at the end, and it’s spooky. You’re right. I don’t smoke, normally, but I did in college. I was a social smoker, I guess. But then I became a regular smoker, smoking in my apartment, and stuff. After I quit, I still had to fight the urge to smoke socially, and sometimes failed. There have been times when I just said “forget it” and smoked for like a week because of some special circumstance, like being around a ton of writers who all smoked… Read more »

I smoke … I LOVE smoking. I’m polite about it though and blow upwards in company. Or just go off into my corner since you’re better off being a rapist axe wielding serial killer than a smoker in Aussie society these days. I roll my own. As far as I’m concerned Dr Pat is medically prescribed. I use filters and stuff and rarely catch a cold, or get sick or cough. If I didn’t smoke I’d be clinically insane. It’s my circuit breaker, meditational device, stress reliever. I will NEVER EVER give up. That being said I can’t abide tailor… Read more »

sun gemini. sport swimming. I smoke

heard that gemini’s (ruler lungs) adore smoking, that’s me. I love my lungs, that lovely huge capacity that allows me to tear through water (cancer rising)

but weakness and coolness and nervous chatter make me smoke.

All the new laws banning smoking are good. The less everyone smokes the better for me.

and, can’t watch Mad Men (tv show about advertising) without being appalled and enthralled by the amount of smoking, that was our world people

Mad Men rocks trixie. So smart and stylish, and with dead set hunk in lead role. The smoking and the sexism give me chills. I wasn’t alive in the early sixties, but it reminds me of the way things were growing up a decade or so later, and how a LOT has changed for the better.

God damn it. i grew up on a hippy commune and got addicted to the nicotine in joints. talk about the ol’ mary-jane being a gate-way to harder drugs – there ain’t nothing harder than tobacco. Numerous dalliances with it, including a period in my ealry tweinties when I reached for the Marlboros before getting out of bed (ughh, shudder!) but aprat from that short-lived time I’ve never been strongly addicted to them. Can smoke for three months then not again for a year. Currently in what I hope will be a permanent off-season. Strongly relate to the idea of… Read more »

Bloss babe, I went hiking over mount something in Fiji aside a Liverpool copper who smoked like a chimney, and at the end of the trail towards the beach, everyone else was out of breath. I stood there panting, while his ciggie hung off his lips and he festooned my head with a scuba mask and sent me on my way into the deep end.

I swam off while he was yelling at me saying, “I’ll be right in just finishing this fag.” Seriously.

Libra, Aqua asc. Never touched the stuff – can’t understand why you’d fork out wads of cash for the return of bad breath. Was much more tolerant when younger – parents smokers, first few house mates smokers. But once I lived totally smoke free I couldn’t believe the difference – could distinguish subtler smells. Now living in a country where smoking is allowed everywhere – hate how I smell like a pub despite only going for an afternoon coffee, hate how it interfers with appreciation of food, hate how it makes any expensive, seductive perfum totally redundant.

Well, bad breath or not, I enjoy a smoke but admit that when I didn’t smoke and my ex husband did I did not like kissing an ashtray. Am single now and not kissin’ anyone….

When in Europe could not believe (as you are pointing out in another country), how much people smoke. In Germany, there was a horrendous cloud over our dining area one night as the girl behind our table and everyone else was chain smoking. Here I did smoke occassionaly and yet I could not tolerate that amount. We had to leave and have dessert elsewhere…

I live with a Libran- Scorp that smokes rollies, he’s too tight to buy tailormades but bums everyone elses. He’s smoked since his parents owned the town pub at 8 and regularly since 12! I think he’d be one of those that would smoke even if he had emphysema.

I gave up 9 years ago and never looked back, only embarrassed when he bums smokes.

alice and Savannah,

My grandpa died of emphysema (smoking) and was an alcholoic to boot. So, I gotta be careful with my vices and chose them wisely if going to do them.

As far as bumming smokes. I truly am irritated when someone asks for a cigarette when I’m at the casino. I have been generous but addicts don’t know how to say “thanks”, you know?

I had to buy mine, now, go buy your own…(or win some damn money…)

I’m a Libran and have wrestled with smoking for the last 17 years – I don’t smoke at present but when I smoke I seriously smoke. My grandfather also a Libran smoked from the age of 13 to 65, he died of emphesima.

Quit smoking 2 years ago, it was a breeze. Never felt an urge, even people (Leo, Virgo, Libran & Pisces) I knew & worked with who had been smoking for 20 years or more began to quit after they saw how easily I quit. Had some stressful situations to go through & still no desire was ever present. I’ve also been told the lungs represent the grief which has been present in my life since I lost my parents when I was 11. Since I’ve quit I’ve had a lot of lung related illnesses & feel the grief more so.… Read more »

am still struggling to regain lung capacity Pegasus – gemini rising peeps often have shallow breathing but I was a ballet dancer and trained to dance hours and hours on end but since late twenties suffered from constriction around chest and lungs – thus meditation and breath awareness crucial for me. I don’t blame smoking but rather realise I smoked to avoid dealing with some issues in this area.

your work must bring you into contact with so much human stuff – emotion, trauma, etc! How I wish I had the courage!

Smoked as a minor rebel thing as teenager. Smoked excessively till I met the father of my children. Knew he disliked it greatly as he had been brought up by smokers. Found the first ciggie of the day with a coffee the hardest to give up. Something in corrupting the purity of fresh new air made that first inhale so much sweeter. Did manage to give up though. However a couple of years later I reached for ciggies when something really stressful happened. ie Virgo natural sister telling me of the years of abuse she endured. Chainsmoked that afternoon.

Libran and love it – don’t do it anymore but I LOVE the ritual of it – rollies, pipes, cigars, blunts – whatever. Loved it with a coffee, while talking on the phone, as a way to procrastinate, as a way to bond with others, as a way to marry liquor to something. It goes with stuff you know? Never did it in restaurants or in other people’s houses – had rules and regulations about it – boundaries of decency for the benefit of others.

I mainly smoke when drunk, outside, at night, surveying the street with friends who are trying to rediscover some panoramic “I own this city!” kind of vibe.

Smoking’s good for posing, thinking or arguing. I don’t see it as an everyday thing. I also lean much towards the roll-your-owns as making the cigarette aids in laying the foundations of a conversation between two people who have broken away from a party for a D&M.

Fifteen years ago, every 3rd person i saw for massage was a smoker. Always asked as the breathwork techniques would cause their hands to spasm & bodies vibrate. Nowadays i don’t even ask as it’s so very rare. Smoking is a sign of not getting enough breath. Watch the pattern of inhale-exhale. Did smoke in my early years so i am sympatico & also said ‘it earthed me’. Never heard that reason before from anyone, David & Myst.

I am not a smoker. I was a vocal anti-smoker person. Then in my work i had to second hand smoke all the time. I’ve come to associate it with relaxing.

Funny. Am a non smoker here in Australia (flirted with it socially as a youngster but nada for years) but when I’m in Asia (go about every second year) I smoke up a storm.

Hate smoke here, hate the smell, the taste, the everything, but there I refuse to feel guilt or shame and enjoy it immensely. Its like I let myself off the hook there but funny thing is never ever crave them here. Wonder what it is in my chart that could influence that behaviour? Nothing major in Cap. Oh though have Scorp ascendant and Aqua moon.
