Yes There Is An Asteroid Geisha

Geisha Art

Oh happy days – Katy Perry craps on about geishas and it inspires me to think something along the lines of O.M.G. Is There an Asteroid Geisha?ย  And yes there is!!!

Now as always with the asteroids, they are for fun. I use a FEW in the Horoscopes, the ones i feel are relevant but they’re basically whimsical…Not all of them. But when we talk of Asteroid Gary or Asteroid Geisha, don’t go giving them too much weight…right?

Having said that, the asteroids category of this site is my fave – there we have Godiva, Hatshepsut, Sappho, Lucretia, Theodora, Gary (!) Bacchus and loads of others…

Now thrillingly, Asteroid Geisha (number 1047 if you want to look her up on Astrodienst and throw her into your chart) is currently at 21 Sagittarius – the Moon will be on Asteroid Geisha this weekend, if you’re interested…

I have her at 9 Taurus – bang on my I.C. – ie: the cusp of my home sector. No geisha tendencies chez Mystic unless you count minimalism, an s-load of esoteric herbal teas and a Japanese lotus incense addiction. Hmmm. “Geisha in Taurus” does sound like an all purpose excuse lol. Blaming everything on my Mars in Virgo is getting a bit old.

So where is YOUR Asteroid Geisha?ย  And what do we think a powerfully placed asteroid Geisha would indicate? We need to hear from people with Venus on Geisha…and so forth.

Geisha in 9th house Scorpio, trining Jupiter, Venus and…Chiron? Definitely a cerebrally sexed placement, but subversive. And maybe a little angsty. :p Maybe the trine promotes some kind of self-healing through supercharged love/sex/philosophy benders? Sounds fun!

Chiron never really resonated with me, so that’s the curveball in this as far as I’m concerned.

Geisha is exact conjunct my venus in aries in the 7th (natally i mean). I think she’s just reflecting the theme of service and creativity in my chart – pisces sun, virgo rising, moon in the 5th etc. there seems a contradiction to me between an arian venus and the geisha image (because of those conditions mentioned earlier) but contradictions are also a theme in my chart so i guess it does make sense!

Just another thing sitting in water – my Geisha is in Pisces/Tenth with the sun, venus and mercury, and conj moon in Virgo over there in the fourth. Hmmmm…..

I actually have a really large print of a geisha on fabric hanging in my house – it was given to me when I was in Japan as a fourteen year old. A fourteen year old!

My Geisha is at 7* Cancer in the 11th house. It is conjunct my natal Juno at 8* Cancer.
This is conjunct my Torro lover’s 8* natal South Node in Cancer. That deepens the layers.

Mine is at 7* Cancer, conjunct my natal juno at 8* Cancer

Also conjunct my lover’s natal south node at 8* Cancer.

That explains even more about our relationship! My Geisha and Juno by his south node.

I have Geisha at 7 Virgo 12 exactly square my Mercury 7 Sag 14. 11th house an 2nd house respectively.

My pleasing the collective interferes with what I think my values are? I have Merc conj Saturn natally so my 2nd house feels a little compromised sometimes anyway!!

Geisha in the 8th in Libra…… hmnnnn….. squares my moon, sn and nn, so there’s some tension, but surprisingly sextiles that Saturn in aqua in the 12th that I’m just warming up to and trines sun in leo in the 6th…. maybe I should use more charm in the workplace, after all, geishas were well cultured and expected to excel in the arts, right up my alley, the… Read more »

ok figured out the asteroid search ๐Ÿ™‚ and saw on the previous Bast posts that I was answered, maybe the email went in my junk folder, didn’t see it…. thanks again, for the number…… so Bast is in Scorps in the 9th, trine my nn and moon and squaring asc….. like so many other parts of my chart, there’s a bit of a push/pull between Bast and Geisha….

I have Geisha conjunct my Moon in Pisces. If Geisha were significant, I’d say that was a significant aspect. But yeah, I don’t know much about geishas, culturally, so I can’t weigh in deeply about the subject, but I never got an ‘unconditional love’ vibe about them. I get more of a ‘service’ vibe, whatever the services may be at the moment. Almost like a cross between a servant and a nurse, or something… I have learned a bit about tea ceremony, though, but not in relation to geishas at all, but because I’m just actually really into tea and… Read more »

This reminds me of the Japenese tv series Oshin that I used to watch as a kid. She too had to become a geisha to support herself and family but apparently because of the nature of her work she was portrayed as a hairdresser in the Iranian version. I can’t remember which version I watched as a kid but do remember crying whenever the family she worked for were mean to her. Ahh memories!

I have Geisha in Scorpio/3rd house conjunct my Venus, trine Mars, and square Moon. I am befuddled as to how this manifests in my day-to-day or romantic life, though. A dedication to beautiful language maybe? I’ve been a bookworm since I learned to read…

Interesting. Just this last weekend I watched a movie by Kenji Mizoguchi, “A Geisha,” original title “Gion Bayashi.” I can’t believe it, I found the original 1953 movie trailer, warning: loud “kagaku” music with flute and gongs.

Read Memories of a Geisha & saw the movie.
Not as glamourous as many think and completely lost the plot after WW11.
What amazing artisans.

As well researched as it may be it is a novel and the author is a man from Tennessee. It is a work of fiction.

To truly understand, one must read the culture from inside the culture, a Japanese perspective. However, this will be difficult here because the geisha belong to a very elite and guarded world of wealth, and believe me we do not even know how the generationally wealthy in European cultures live; we know only about the lifestyles of those who have acquired it. It is too guarded a world.

“Geisha” by Lisa Dalby is a really good insightful look into the Geisha world. It’s not a novel, it’s real life research done for her Ph.D (She’s an anthropologist and the first white woman to ever be accepted and trained as a Geisha.)

I highly recommend this movie, it is most fascinating on almost all levels. Starting with the title, “Gion Bayashi,” Gion is the name of the Geisha district in Kyoto, which is a tradition that goes back to 8th Century when Kyoto was established as the Imperial Capital. Bayashi in the title is “hayashi” (the h becomes b when it follows some words). A Hayashi is the group of musicians in Noh or Kabuki theater. The movie has lengthy scenes of the young Maiko (trainees) learning shamisen, taiko drums, and other instruments that are specific to Hakashi performances. Yet the Hayashi… Read more »

thanks for all this Charles – really inspiring.

Coincidentally a friend just gifted me a box set of 8 late Mizoguchi films including this one, so I will watch it this dark moon. The only other of his films I’ve seen is Osaka Elegy, so I gather the predicament of women in disempowering or compromised scenarios is his preferred theme. I wonder where his Lilith was?

oh interesting – they’re not all tight but he had a Pluto/Venus/Neptune/Lilith stellium in Gemini

I saw Osaka Elegy, that’s a relatively early film so it is rather crudely executed compared to the later movies that are more subtle with their moralizing.

I hope your set has Sansho the Baliff. I cried and cried.

I am just catching up on Mizoguchi movies, I have seen a few of the early ones like 47 Ronin, which is about 4 hours total. But these films are not easy to find.

I agree w Scorporation’s first comment – finally something inspired by Katy Perry that actually interests me!

My Geisha is at 27 Aries in the 9th completely unaspected. It’s true I am a smartypants and have used my ‘higher mind’ to seduce many a man over the years. I like the fact that in my chart Geisha is all alone owning that space.

Geisha conj Moon in Scorp. I’m completely intrigued by Geishas, read a factual book about them (not that Geisha novel) years ago and noticed I have all these weird little habits that parallel aspects of Geisha life/ways. (I’ve been told I was an orphan who was raised by geishas in a past life, so Geisha/Moon totally fits in a way I can’t actually confirm!)

Hey Mystic, my Geisha is on Taurus 9, too! Except mine is Retrograde (maybe for you as well?)

A Retro Geisha in the first house. I hate being in servile positions, and yet I find myself in them frequently. I’ve also got a complex about people being “above me” whether it’s due to their career success or how much they earn.

Lol this one is so much fun. Have asteroid Geisha in Aries in my 10th. I’m a creative and my work is female oriented of the sexy kind. Also always mindful to empower or at least give that feeling to those around me. Men I work with always like me. The closest aspects it makes is an opposition to my natal Pluto in the 4th and a square to my natal Venus in the 7th. I’m going to say that I read this as my vibing like a geisha in social sphere(Asian to boot), but in individual situations, I wear… Read more »

Oh funny really funny. They say those of us with a north node in taurus used to be concubines and this time have to learn to make their own way without being a consort, escort and all round good time girl. So you can imagine my glee when I find my geisha at 22 virgo bang on my DC! Trine my 8th house neptune and my 5th house sun. Still a good time girl me thinks.

Mine’s in the 4th house, 10 degrees Capricorn, conjunct Jupiter and sextile to my sun. I wonder if Geisha is something that we individually project, or if it isn’t rather something that others project on to us? The skill of a geisha, from what I understand, is to be exactly what people expect her to be, matching even their unspoken, unconscious expectations, appearance through action. I’m not sure where Katy’s ideas were going. Maybe she relates? I can’t imagine that this is unique to me, but I do notice that some people reward me more for “domestic” accomplishments than other… Read more »

24 degrees cancer in my 7H (im also a cancer sun). transit lilith is currently conj, the last full moon was conj, my progressed DC is 26 degrees cancer, and i used to be a mistress to the love of my life/soul mate, whos now divorced. (i blame this on lilith/juno at 1 degree cap conj my AC at 25 sag, but geisha being in my 7H as well is interesting).

acquagal

lol i just looked at his chart… i dont know his houses, but he has geisha at 11 degrees cancer, conjunct my NN at 13 degrees. his SN is at 27 degrees cancer. so my geisha conjuncts his SN and his geisha conjuncts my NN. both of our geishas, like our nodes, square each others moons in libra too… these are among many other aspects we share, our venuses conjunct each other’s suns, his mars conjuncts my sun, and my mars conjuncts his moon.
on the topic of unconditional love – if i’ve ever loved anyone unconditionally, its been him.
