Beauty and the Goddess Asteroid; Aphrodite

by Amanda A.

A lot of people wonder what makes a person beautiful and appealing in the eyes of the opposite sex. Many believe beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Others feel there is a set standard of beauty that all people should strive toward. I somewhat feel beauty is far too complex to be confined to any one characteristic. However, I mostly feel that there is a set standard of beauty when it comes to human beings as a race. The reason I believe this is because of astrology. Astrology can show us if a person is beautiful or not without ever having looked at their physical appearance. As an example I will use the the model Sean O’Pry. Many people believe this man doesn’t have the ideal features that a man should have. That he is too feminine and women aren’t into that. Well, I hate to disappoint the people with that opinion because the most attractive people are in fact androgynous. The face must be classic with a mixture of masculine and feminine features. To me this is the definition of beauty; a woman who can pass for a man and a man who can pass for a woman. Although.. both would be very beautiful.. they set the standard.

Sean O’Pry has Aphrodite (the asteroid) conjunct his Sun and Sirius at 13-14 degrees Cancer. Anyone with Sun conjunct Aphrodite is bound to be extremely appealing. Because the Sun is the Ego and it mixes with the magnetic powers of the beauty and attraction of Aphrodite. His life force and reason for living is to be beautiful before others. His soul chose this to experience this in his current lifetime. With this in mind, Aphrodite represents attraction and beauty in both sexes. If this is so.. that means there is a set standard of beauty. Now, that beauty has different ways of expressing itself. As Sean has Sun in sensitive Cancer so he is very deep and emotional with strong roots to his family and home. Having Sirius conjunct as well just makes him all the more magnetic and special. Sirius and its energy is a huge mystery that I will get into more in the future…

So you see, Aphrodite and her powers of attraction are always apparent in both sexes. You can bet that anyone with Aphrodite aspecting their Sun or Ascendant is very appealing to the eyes of the masses if they were so destined to experience fame. There are a great number of people I can name that have Aphrodite aspecting their Sun or Ascendant: Monica Bellucci, Adriana Lima, Salma Hayek, Natalie Portman, Sophia Loren… and others. And they all have a certain aura; It’s Aphrodite. To be continued…
