VENUS FOR FAME
Venus appearing frequently in Aquarius would fit well with astrological thinking. This placing confers an openminded friendliness together with the capacity to attract people from all sorts of different backgrounds and also a person who feels comfortable with modern media.
Venus lowest score is in Libra. Libra is, more than any other, the sign of marriage and one to one relationships and Venus here would indicate someone who would naturally channel their capacity for attraction towards a single mate. Venus in Aquarius would feel less comfortable in one to one relationships and would need the freedom to relate to many people in a less personal way. Public figures are more likely to focus their attraction on a wider audience hence the extremely high score for Venus in Aquarius.
MARS FOR FAME
Mars in Leo gives strong vitality and stamina. People with this position are natural leaders and they have a strong need to create something of great significance in their lives. Power would be an important motivator and they have a natural authority and the ability to go where they want to in life. They have an innate ability to lead and inspire their followers to support their goals.
Mars scores low in Aries, which is interesting in that it is a strong assertive placing but there is always the suggestion of a tendency to burnout, to be constantly changing direction and to lack the staying power that success in many fields require. Mars also scores low in Pisces and is generally seen as a weaker placing as it tends to disperse personal drive and energy whilst also finding it difficult to concentrate on the same goals consistently.
