The Basics of Astrology
The Moon and Venus in favorable aspect
Astrological aspects: general introduction
The analysis of a natal chart must be as comprehensive as possible. This is what we do as we make our personalized reports available in our e-shop. It must be borne in mind that many astrologers concentrate on the interpretation of planets in signs and in houses, and of angles, without paying enough attention to aspects. On the contrary, we believe that when aspects involve personal planets between themselves or slow-moving planets, they are of fundamental importance. In all cases, they are at least as significant as the Ascendant or the Sun. This is particularly relevant when the orb is tight (i.e. when the aspect is exact). This is the criterion we apply for this new series of articles which describe how well-known personalities experience certain aspects.
The Moon and Venus in auspicious aspect
A harmonious aspect between the Moon and Venus evokes a desire to live in symbiosis with loved ones. This configuration emphasizes traits associated with the feminine archetype, whether referring to men or women.
These two fast planets are connected to sensitivity, emotional and romantic life, friendship, pleasure in general, and spontaneous emotions.
Their influence on one's character is evident, manifesting in marked delicacy and expressiveness. Individuals influenced by this combination prioritize harmony, avoiding discord at all costs.
The Moon, being yin and receptive, contrasts with the yang and active Sun. It is ever-changing, adopting a versatile nature that captures the essence of the present moment. Ruling the sign of Cancer, it is also linked to the dream world and childhood, notably portraying the filial and maternal relationship.
For a woman, it also pertains to her maternal role, whether potential or actual. For a man, it relates to his expectations of his life partner.
Venus symbolizes love, elegance, the arts, and refinement. It is at the heart of the games of seduction. It illuminates our reactions to physical attraction.
For a woman, Venus illustrates how she wishes to present herself to attract or captivate the partner she has set her sights on. For a man, this planet describes the type of woman that charms him, primarily from a sensual perspective.
Symbolically, the Moon represents the ideal wife for a man, while Venus is the mistress, the fleeting lover. For a woman, the Sun embodies the husband and Mars the lover.
When combined favorably, the energies of the Moon and Venus indicate coherence in this regard. In other words, individuals with a harmonious conjunction, sextile, or trine between these celestial bodies do everything to succeed in their emotional life, be it with their significant other, friends, or family.
The favorable aspect, a source of balance, helps them rely on strong bonds. These people give themselves fully, with kindness, simplicity, and clarity.
They do their utmost to ensure the daily life of their entourage is experienced in well-being, comfort, and peace. Disliking constraints, they can sometimes appear overly accommodating, out of concern not to disturb others.
Yet, they always remain good-hearted individuals, whose company is particularly pleasant and appreciated.
In order to better explain this aspect, we are mentioning several well-known personalities (here Brad Pitt (favorable conjunction), Kendall Jenner (trine), Ben Affleck (trine), and Claudia Schiffer (trine)). This article deliberately isolates the aspect so as to better describe them. For this reason, it claims on no account to be a psychological analysis of the celebrity in question, for whom many other articles are available in the "Focus" section.
It is possible to find thousands of other horoscopes having the Moon in favorable aspect with Venus (or any other aspects), with the online tool search. The planets, positions in sign and in house as well as the orb, are configurable.
When he received his first Oscar for a supporting role in Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood in 2020, Brad Pitt was able to see just how popular he was, even if he had already suspected it.
While audiences have been drawn to his incredible charisma from the start, first revealed in Ridley Scott's 1991 film Thelma & Louise, it's even rarer to gain unanimous approval within one's own professional circle.
There's no doubt that Brad Pitt makes an excellent friend – George Clooney, for instance, has long enjoyed spending time in his company – and those who direct him value his amiable nature and lack of diva moments.
He's even willingly taken on roles where the character he portrays is somewhat comical, as in Burn After Reading.
In his birth chart, there's a close conjunction of the Moon and Venus in Capricorn. Within this introspective and deliberate sign, they moderate Brad Pitt's fiery and sometimes excessive nature, being a double Sagittarius: enthusiastic, passionate, and restless.
Despite this, the actor appears to be cautious and thoughtful when deciding on matters of love, taking time to resolve his emotional dilemmas before committing fully.
Loyal, he goes above and beyond for the one he loves, even collaborating closely over the long term, as Capricorn is also linked to career pursuits.
While he may have faced issues during his tumultuous split from Angelina Jolie, it seems he has regained control of his life, with mastery being a significant notion for him.
Lastly, this conjunction also reflects his taste for architecture and likely for a home setting that's simple, modern, pleasant, and minimalist.

Kendall Jenner is proving that one can be among the world's highest-paid supermodels, a successful entrepreneur, and still believe that the most important things lie elsewhere.
For instance, maintaining a fulfilling private life. The challenge is certainly met by Kendall Jenner, whose name is, of course, tied to the famed Kardashian family, known for their media omnipresence.
Yet, in her case, she seems to master the art of being in the spotlight while simultaneously staying out of it.
The interplay of dominions reveals several insights pointing in a similar direction: her Moon is conjoined with Pluto, which rules Scorpio. This alignment amplifies the symbolic aspects of this sign, while the emphasis on the 8th house, also analogous to Scorpio and Pluto, completes the picture.
In short, we're looking at a beautiful young woman who skillfully harnesses her wild allure (of a Scorpio-Sagittarius type) while cherishing privacy.
Even when surrounded by paparazzi, she remains discreet about her romantic life: with her, the saying "To live happily, live hidden" truly resonates.

In the case of successful director and actor Ben Affleck, we have a playboy with an intriguing astrological aspect: Venus on his Cancer Ascendant, trine to the Moon in Scorpio.
Here, it's the Moon that rules over Venus and emphasizes the need for deep emotional intimacy with the one he loves.
Likewise, he knows how to use his own allure, but without undue arrogance, with this Cancerian touch of discretion and craving for security. This perfectly balances his Leo traits, personality amplified by the trine from Jupiter and the trine from the sextile from Saturn to his natal Sun, and the presence of Mercury in that sign.
From what we know, Ben Affleck has displayed the full spectrum of these attributes throughout his life. His union with Jennifer Beals, with whom he had two daughters and a son, was long portrayed as exemplary, blending family, harmonious couple life, and fame.
Even their breakup didn't tarnish their amicable relationship, especially for the sake of their children.
But perhaps it's with his feminine counterpart, Jennifer Lopez, that Ben Affleck most strikingly showcases the effects of this beneficial trine.
To recall, the lovebirds were set to marry in 2003 when they were both at the peak of their careers. The last-minute cancellation of this joyous event didn't extinguish the flame that led them to reconnect nearly twenty years later.
The two stars wed in 2022 and since then, haven't been shy about displaying their affection for one another.

Everyone remembers the beautiful German, Claudia Schiffer, who was one of the most prominent members of the top model club in the 90s.
This suggests the potential for financial gains, which indeed fluctuate, but always in a positive direction, and connected to the Venusian world: that of fashion and beauty.
Moreover, this aspect adds a touch of ease and sociability to Claudia Schiffer, who is naturally more measured due to the influence of Virgo, her Sun sign.
The outcome allows her to have a quiet and balanced family life, while continuing to maintain strong ties in the industry where her career flourished.
Today, she smoothly juggles several successful ventures. After launching a collection of cashmere sweaters, she has ventured into tableware, with sets adorned with butterflies. An excellent choice to express the lightness that aligns with this delicate planetary aspect.
