We’ve explored what a man’s Venus sign and woman’s Mars sign mean. But the definitions of a man’s Venus as the type of woman that he is attracted to, and a woman’s Mars as the type of man she thinks is hot, do not encompass same-sex attraction. How do natal Venus and Mars work when sexuality does not fit the boy-meets-girl mold? And while we’re at it, how about the natal Sun and Moon?
This article is not about how you can discern someone’s sexual orientation by looking at their chart. Personally, I don’t believe you can. There’s many so-called “indicators” of homosexuality in the natal chart (for example, a strong emphasis on Uranus with the relationship planets). But I’ve seen these indicators in the charts of gay and straight people. This article is a simple exploration of how the male and female significators of attraction manifest in the charts of gay men and women. Please note that the theories in this article are based on my observations from work with clients, and light research into the charts of gay celebrity couples. These ideas are not carved in stone; the only thing I can state with absolute certainty is that sexuality is fluid, and so are the theories.
