The Secret Life Of Prince Charming

Xena

It starts so young, and I’m angry about that. The garbage we’re taught. About love, about what’s “romantic.” Look at so many of the so-called romantic figures in books and movies. Do we ever stop and think how many of them would cause serious and drastic unhappiness after The End? Why are sick and dangerous personality types so often shown a passionate and tragic and something to be longed for when those are the very ones you should run for your life from? Think about it. Heathcliff. Romeo. Don Juan. Jay Gatsby. Rochester. Mr. Darcy. From the rigid control freak in The Sound of Music to all the bad boys some woman goes running to the airport to catch in the last minute of every romantic comedy. She should let him leave. Your time is so valuable, and look at these guys—depressive and moody and violent and immature and self-centered. And what about the big daddy of them all, Prince Charming? What was his secret life? We don’t know anything about him, other then he looks good and comes to the rescue.
Deb Caletti, The Secret Life of Prince Charming

This got mentioned ages ago but it’s worth a repeat: If you ever want a good D.i.Y. Astro Hack, find Venus on your chart and list all her big aspects.  Count only those that are five degrees or less. THOSE are your relationships. Eg: You have Venus square Neptune and yet also conjunct Saturn. You would have had – or be having – both of those as actual relationships. I am going to shortly be doing some D.I.Y. Astro-Hacks Mp3s. Like astrology lessons.  I was going to do it as a book but have decided Mp3 is better.

And lol yes, what WAS the secret life of Prince Charming?

  1. Venus is the most aspected planet in my chart, actually.

    My Venus at 6 degrees Capricorn, and is just a few degrees off conjuncting my Descendant, so it is technically in the 6th house:

    squares Saturn
    opposes my Ascendant
    sextiles my Moon
    quintiles my Mars & MC (which are exactly conjunct)
    squares my Uranus
    trines my Jupiter
    sextiles Ceres and Juno

    Thoughts?

  2. heh. yes

    Venus exact neptune sagittarius 6th house opposite Asc (conjunct Dsc 5 degrees) square saturn 5 degrees sextile pluto exact.

    • Hope you have been well, Ms. Best of 2014 to you xx

      Is this Venus sq Saturn and Venus sextile Pluto, or do u mean Ascendant sq Saturn which sextiles Pluto?

        I’ve not really had the typical love zombie retard for love thing but some of the other manifestations are very apt. My venus conjuncts everyones neptune in my age group too so its mega lessons here but not all harsh its an amazing aspect for love in some ways more what you become to others as well. Worldly love without fantasy will never do

        • Yes it is totally possible. Rare, but possible, and i can see you working with it well. Very important to be clear sighted or, shall we say, unflinching but with love. You can’t know how you’ve just given me a key to unlock a small week’s conundrum. Much appreciated x

          • Thank fully and like most of us with extreme aspects, I have some very ball busting aspects to balance the above, also I am totally attracted to the most positive aspects of this.

            I’ve also made a lot of damn money out of my fantasy talents in the past, it’s really good for art and imagination as well. I could do without the saturn square really and sometimes I feel doomed to ever be human and be loved but who doesn’t ? I try not to fear aspects because they are you.

            Oh that is sweet, I think you are super smart and insightful so your thoughts will always show you the way Mill xx

      • and also yes sorry, I have saturn almost exact square asc to sextile pluto.

        probably my least liked aspect of chart for obvious reasons. pluto is 4th too. growing up was like jail

  3. Love Xena. Wikied it and found she was a NZ actress and Xena has been a lesbian icon due to relationship between her and Gabrielle ( they kissed in Season 2 apparently) – “A group called The Marching Xenas participated in many gay and lesbian pride parades.[31]”

  4. Venus in Cap conjunct Mercury, Asc, Juno, Lilith, currently transited by Pluto, opposed by Jupiter and about to have my Venus return
    Venus trine Jupiter
    Venus trine U-Plu
    Venus square Moon conjunct Circe
    Venus sextile Chiron

    Venus totally earthed in this chart should alter gravity so much that light bends. Currently choosing invisibility cloak mode.

  5. Venus sextile Uranus, 11th to 9 th,
    Venus trine Chiron- 11th to 3rd
    Venus conj Sun-11th

    Most of my girlfriends are therapists.

    I’m a bit claustrophobic- need my space. Physical and emotional space.

    Love my yoga/meditation/martial arts groups!!!

  6. Have venus conjunct pluto.

    Learned to trust myself before I can trust others. And I don’t always have to choose the person who will fulfil fears of betrayal…just stop picking the bad boys.

    It’s usually my partner who is possessive, but at my saturn return I was the possessive insecure one. Ick. No thanks. Thank god for the end of the love zombie era…

  7. Skyler, your comment was pretty upsetting to be honest. People here share and have shared a LOT more than I have. Wy single me out?
    I have a Saggo moon so can’t help speaking my mind and answering honestly if someone asks. I’m pretty much an open book. My Scorp sun is mortified but it is what is. I can’t help it.
    Thanks for the apology.

      • It’s ok. Don’t worry about it. I’m feeling super sensitive at the moment thanks to last week’s full moon and really bad PMT.

  8. Uhh…so an ‘unaspected’ Venus would mean…?

    By this I mean no close aspects. My closest venus aspect is a uranus trine at 7 degrees.

    I have definitely have had relationships and there’s rarely anything conventional about them – there’s Uranus right there then!
