Venus On Beautifully Gowned Wax Figures On Display: Aquarius 8
The Sabian Symbol for Venus is Aquarius 8: BEAUTIFULLY GOWNED WAX FIGURES ON DISPLAY
This Symbol can bring up issues about whether we stack up – in the beauty, money, career, societal, whatever, stakes. It can smack of narcissism, or the revelation of it. It doesn’t have to contain it, it can see it in the issues hanging in the air. What looks good on the outside may not be that great on the inside. Still, beauty is something we crave in life – in whatever form that might take.
This Symbol speaks of the ability, or the need, to be able to create beautiful, or at least useful, things to inspire others or to brighten people’s lives or to contribute beauty to society and culture. It can imply a sense that one has always to be on “Display”, that others are looking at you or the things you do or produce. Being “Beautifully Gowned” is a wonderful thing, but of course inner beauty is more important than outer. It is not enough to just look the part; people must live it as well. Although it is desirable to be beautiful and manicured, you must ‘walk your talk’ as well. You may find that some elements of your life are too superficial or have only a superficial part to play. Things may look good on the outside, but what’s going on inside?
Setting standards. Exemplars of social ritual. The values of society on display. Dummies. Superficial beauty or avatars of fashion? Not showing ones’ true feelings. Fashion.
The Caution: Putting on false fronts. Beauty taking too much importance. Expecting to be noticed. Having to live up to other people’s expectations. Wooden responses. Lifeless.
