Unsurprisingly, old school astrology books were often ultra-patriarchal in tone and content. An astrological book of 1688 warned:
“the conjunction of Venus and the Moon produces extreme lubricity, brings venereal diseases and causes women of quality to become enamored of menservants.”
I am thinking that the ancients would have preferred women in general to have tidy little Moon-Saturn conjunctions, perfectly able to run Casa Del Dark Ages competently and in complete chastity, whilst hubby went off to the Crusades. Or get with the marriage program without any lubricity-Mars-Venus urges.
Do any of you quality ladies have Moon-Mars or Moon-Venus conjunctions and issues with, you know, nymphomania, falling in love with menservants etc?
