Venus is the Beauty Goddess and Venus Rising people are beautiful. Or, even if not classically attractive, they are perceived as such. Check out some of these examples. Note: Venus conjunct Ascendant is the same as Venus Rising. Both mean that the planet was literally rising on the horizon at the time of their birth.
So here are some examples. Angelina (Venus in Cancer/Kataka) Jolie (above), Jude Law, Linda McCartney, Lana Del Rey, Sandra Bullock, Emmanuelle Beart.
Yuri Gagarin – the Cosmonaut & first man in space, had Venus Rising in Aquarius. He was Sun in Pisces and apparently deeply religious, saying he saw God in Space. Helen Mirren (below) has Venus in Gemini Rising. See also Cameron Diaz, Michelle Williams, Anna Nicole Smith, Claudia Cardinale…and SO many more official beauties.
Both Rihanna (Venus in Aries) AND Beyonce – Venus in Libra.
Charlize Theron…Venus in Virgo rising. I could totally see her channeling that V in V vibe with Queen Ravenna.
Grace Kelly…aka Princess of Monaco – Venus in Libra right near her Scorpio Ascendant.
And it’s funny but Rob Kardashian and Serge Gainsbourg don’t seem to fit the classic Venusian male look – for that see Paul Newman, below. But they sure as hell seem/seemed to be surrounded by Venusian archetypes.
Finally, Paul Newman was Venus in Capricorn Rising – Bone structure, legacy hotness.
