Dark achieve her passion potential? What will rekindle
Jane Fonda’s flame? Our quest for romance revolves around
the Venus placement of each sign.

Sagittarius. The desire for conquest and adventure rates

pursuit for Valentine’s Day, like chasing a sexy woman in
a red dress while driving a racecar. Perhaps she’s another

with this combination. Best gift idea for Jack: a trip to
attend the annual running of the bulls in Spain.

and artistic Taurus, along with a sensitive, spiritual Piscean
Mars. Love poems (Pisces) recited while lying amongst satin
sheets littered with rose petals stir Venus in Taurus’s
love of sensuality. Best gift for The Artist: a book of
poetry by the twelfth century poet, Rumi.
Matrix’s Laurence Fishburne’s Venus is in Gemini,
with Mars in Virgo offset by his Pisces Moon and Leo Sun.
This combination creates a turn-on through intellectual
and spiritual venues. A free-spirited weekend getaway to
a mystical location (Moon in Pisces),where pampering (Leos
like to be spoiled) at a luxury health spa (a Virgo treat)
is capped off by champagne on ice (Pisces again), is a Valentines’
dream come true. Ideal gift for Laurence: an autographed
set of the complete works of Carl Jung.

Cancer would love a moonlight swim on Valentine’s Day.

nothing better than an opportunity to be gallant and chivalrous.
Leo is always performance-driven. An opportunity to express
his prowess with an Oscar-winning bedroom performance would
be a turn-on. This is a warm-hearted, gregarious Venus attracted
to cuddling by a roaring bonfire at the beach or fireplace
while sipping fine wine. Best gift: a personal hand-held
video camera so he can record his performances as hero and
would Elvira, Mistress of the Dark desire for Valentine’s
Day? Her chart has a strong Virgoan signature with Sun,
Mercury and Venus in the sign of the Virgin. The Virgoan
Venus knows precisely what she desires. No point in trying
to surprise her—she would prefer to direct
her lover to fulfill her exact requirements, and since perfectionism
is in her nature, improving on her ideas will not be necessary.
Best present: a private karaoke room where an extremely
powerful male, preferably a world leader, movie star or
business mogul, is held captive while she sings her favorite
songs to him.

creating desires for overwhelming passion. Best gift: a
key to the secret meditation room in the Pentagon. What
she does with it is nobody’s business.

an attractive beau. Where is he? She should try looking
in the jungle, at the ranch, white water
rafting, climbing the Himalayas, or at a race. Best gift:
