I was looking at the search terms that came in today for Astrogasm and one of them was this: Prostitution 6th house matter.
Please see some astrology research. It’s interesting to note that the astrology found Capricorn (10th house), Leo (Sun), 7th house (Venus), and Venus in Virgo (6th) as showing up quite often in the 166 charts they did.
I hadn’t remembered writing anything about prostitution in the 6th so I did a Google search and came across Elsa Elsa’s board (what’s new?! The woman is the Queen of Astrology on the Internet. ;-).
Anyway, this is the question a forum member posed and I decided to answer it:
Which house rules prostitution in astrology?
@Mina I could totally see Venus Capricorn being a prostitute, as a profession. Why? Because Capricorn is the natural sign on the 10th house and Venus is the natural sign on the 2nd house. These are the ‘career’ houses.
Venus Capricorn has a love of money and stability [and choose ambitious lovers].
And Venus Capricorn is like Venus-Saturn. Having said that, not all Venus Capricorn, Venus-Saturn natives are or will be prostitutes nor will they fall in love with someone ‘just’ for their money. But they will be more interested in someone who is financially secure, if not wealthy, but being in-love will still be important.
I wrote a bit about prostitution and the 2nd here, http://www.astrogasm.com/2012/03/11/2nd-house-sex-money-self-worth-prostitution
Also the 6th will signify a type of prostitution as well, but more at the mercy of someone else’s choosing (perhaps working for a madam rather than being an independent) because I believe the 6th is the House of submission and in this house (the house of Vesta and Virgo) the prostitute will not be paid well or recognized. They will feel ‘used’, possibly enslaved. Whereas prostitution in the 2nd house shows a talent and ability to make money from prostituting one self.
Scorpio on the 6th could signify prostitution as well.
(Adding: Because I can see the 6th having to do with prostitution, that means the 12th is involved too but I’d like to see Venus in that house and even then…)
I’ve wrote about Venus-Pluto being more like the Dominatrix as I believe the 8th house is the House of Domination (Pluto being the natual ruler of the 8th). So if Venus-Pluto is doing any sex for money, she’s on top! ;-)
As for Venus Virgo. Unless she’s in the 6th, 8th, or has some interesting planets and/or aspect in (and to) the 2nd or 10th (such as Venus, Saturn, Mars, or Pluto), I can’t see her selling sex for money or otherwise.
(Adding: I could also see Leo on or Sun in the 2nd as far as being able to prostitute oneself for money and because the Sun can identify and express itself strongly with the values and themes of the 2nd house.
Other than that, it’s all water and earth houses showing up in my thoughts!!)
And again, just because one has this placement or signatures, doesn’t mean they will become a prostitute but there is an option, opportunity, or ability to do so.
And as with anything related to reading a natal chart or analyzing the complex life and possibilities of a human being, something can show in more than one place but the meaning is modified. So, with this example, prostitution isn’t indicated by only one signature. Many different signatures can indicate the same thing in a chart but the explanation, meaning, or experience for the native will be modified.
I <3 astrology. :D
