“You can’t blame your hormones for being a bitch,” said the doctor.
Fine. I blame Saturn. The hormones are raging rabid, no deficit, still partying away like it’s 1999.
But Saturn squared my Venus in 2017 and i have been “a bitch” in Venusian areas ever since.
As some of you will appreciate, Saturn is an astringent.
Advantages Of A Saturn Venus Transit: Permanent inoculation against the Love Zombie Virus. Less likely to be seduced by dangling baubles and evocatively named eye-shadows. Extreme pragmatism. The ability to filter out F-Wits.
Disadvantages Of A Saturn Venus Transit: Less flouncing-about action. Having such a strong High Alert Perimeter Guard that it can turn out false negatives. Narrower mating options due to refined conditions/pre-requisites for ‘entry.’
Example: An Italian Leo – actually single. As opposed to a secretly married narcissist seeking to restock his ego stores/get a dopamine hit from acting available.
Charming, attractive and not mansplainy or pompous enough to trigger any Harvey style angst.
An Italian Leo in actual pursuit, at that.
Pre-Saturn-Venus this would have swiftly turned into a deep-assess of his birth-chart, progressions, transits, composite charts…progressed composite with asteroids for fuqs sake. Quintiles if truly deranged.
With possible pretensions to being interested in Italian soccer teams, research of Tuscan cuisine/love shacks/witch history and the affectation of a more “Mediterranean” attitude.
Post-Saturn-Venus? Pfft. Substance. Gravitas. Authenticity. Maturity. Mutually Respectful Dialogue. These are the new turn-ons. Not responding with a suitably Venusian display (cooing, affirmations) in response to some feather fluffing, preening or monologue recital of achievements/possessions/high profile acquaintances can be interpreted by some as being a bitch. Disdain for ego appeasement? Definitely.
The English language historian Geoffrey Hughes suggests the connection came about because of the Greek goddess of the hunt, Artemis (Diana in the Roman pantheon) who was often portrayed with a pack of hunting dogs and sometimes transformed into an animal herself. In Ancient Greece and Rome the comparison was a sexist slur equating women to dogs in heat, sexually depraved beasts who grovel and beg for men.
The modern word bitch comes from the Old English bicce, which probably developed from the Norse bikkje, all meaning ‘female dog’. Its use as an insult was propagated into Old English by the Christian rulers of the Dark Age to suppress the idea of femininity as sacred. The insult “son of a bitch” (biche sone in Old English) originated to ridicule spiritual pagans, who worshipped the bitch goddess Diana.
