Libra women can be an enticing mix of sexy, beautiful and talented. That’s because Libra is ruled by Venus, the planet of love and beauty. Many modern-day Aphrodites are artists who push the boundaries of sexuality in print and film. To discover the source of their mystique, let’s take a look at the charts of Libra bombshells Brigitte Bardot, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Dita Von Teese.
Without a doubt, Bardot was influential in widening the sphere of sexuality in film. She has a lush sensual nature that lights up dozens of films made mainly in the ’50s and ’60s. Her pouty, carefree sexuality was scandalous to some, and mesmerizing to others. (Remember, it was quite daring just to show one’s midriff in a movie during the 1950s.) Bardot’s sex goddess status drew many devoted admirers, including four men who were to become her husbands over the years. Currently, she is an outspoken animal activist who lives in France.
The French sex kitten, as she was called, was born on September 28, 1934 in Paris. She has Sun, Mercury and Jupiter in Libra, giving her a talent for the arts. She began modeling for magazine covers quite young, at the age of 15. About three years later, she debuted in the comedy film Crazy for Love.
As for her onscreen allure, that’s the gift of Neptune conjunct Venus in Virgo. Neptune rules film and fantasy, and Venus rules beauty. Virgo is a sensual Earth sign. All of these enhanced Bardot’s onscreen presence. Additionally, Moon in Gemini lends her a flirtatious side, while Mars in Leo heightens her charisma and talent for drama.
On the challenging side, Pluto afflictions point to a willful, combative streak. Bardot has gotten into legal trouble for speaking out against Muslim immigration in France. She was convicted five times for “inciting racial hatred.” Pluto also drives her to speak out against animal cruelty, a mission she embraced after she gave up her acting career in the 1970s. So whether it’s through art or advocacy, Bardot is living her Libra destiny.
Born on September 25, 1969, this Welsh beauty has starred in such films as The Mask of Zorro, Traffic and Chicago, for which she won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. She is married to actor Michael Douglas, a Libra who shares her birth date.
Like Bardot, Zeta-Jones has Sun, Mercury and Jupiter in Libra and Venus in Virgo. The Libra placements enhance her creativity and beauty, while Venus in Virgo heightens her sensuality and gives her a discriminating eye for art. Additionally, multiple Uranus conjunctions give Zeta-Jones a sparkling charisma. She’s also highly independent, original and strong-willed.
However, such a strong Uranus can make it difficult to achieve a balanced life. Usually that’s a no-brainer for Libra, the sign of balance, but Uranus can prompt extreme ideas and behavior and make it difficult to settle down. Fortunately, Zeta-Jones has multiple Earth influences that help her stay grounded.
Zeta-Jones may share Bardot’s glamorous image, but there’s one undeniable difference between the two women: image. Zeta-Jones’s onscreen sexuality isn’t the pouty kind. Rather, she’s the sword-wielding heroic type (think Mask of Zorro). A Grand-Earth Trine involving Venus in Virgo, Mars in Capricorn and Saturn in Taurus heightens her strength – onscreen and off. It also gives her a no-nonsense nature and a head for business. Additionally, she may have Moon in Aries (depending on her time of birth), which would intensify her headstrong nature. She may be a Libra bombshell, but never forget she has a brain – and a good one, at that.
Dita Von Teese
Known as the Queen of Burlesque, Von Teese is a burlesque performer and fetish model. Pushing the sexual envelope must be a talent for Libra bombshells – after all, she once performed at a benefit for the New York Academy of Art wearing nothing but $5 million in diamonds. Any Libra just loves finery, after all.
Born on September 28, 1972 (the same day of the year as Bardot), Von Teese has Sun conjunct Pluto in Libra, and Mercury conjunct Uranus in Libra. Typical of her sign, she’s artistically talented. She has a background in fashion design, and loves all things retro. What’s atypical about her is the Uranus and Pluto influences. She has Zeta-Jones’s Uranus originality, but with a dose of strange. The Pluto influence is all about sex. It gives Von Teese a powerful charisma, and a fondness for the dark side of things. But not too dark – she’s a fresh-faced naughty girl, a la Betty Page. Even better, Pluto also rules fetishes, so this Libra lady has certainly found the right niche for her artistic talents.
Like Bardot, Von Teese has Moon in flirty Gemini. But it’s her Venus in Leo that gives her a touch of drama. She started out at 18 as a striptease performer, but got bored with the uninspired routines. Since then, she has been instrumental in the revival of burlesque. Venus in Leo makes her a leader in her field, while Mars in Virgo gives her a talent for detail.
Her love life may be another story, however. Uranus and Pluto are notoriously willful influences that can crucify relationships. Plus, Pluto likes to be in control. And the men! Uranus says she likes outcasts, while Pluto suggests she likes bad boys. She was married to heavy-metal rocker Marilyn Manson for a year – and it’s worth noting that he cobbled his name together from sex symbol Marilyn Monroe and 1960s cult-leader Charles Manson. Enough said?
Still, Libras love to be in love, so with enough heart (mixed with a little common sense), she may find her shining knight – wearing a retro suit of armor, of course.
Libra bombshells can be beautiful and brainy, creative and talented. Whatever their gifts, they are the Venus-ruled artisans of the zodiac, and the world is a much more lovely place because of them!
