sex asteroids

There are a few dozen asteroids with an explicit relation to sexuality. Including them in a chart can give detailed information that cannot be traced in traditional astrology which uses only the classical planets.


Sex and astrology usually revolves around certain signs of the zodiac and certain planets that are favorable or unfavorable to the libido and love life in general. Classically, the more sexually active signs are Scorpio (rules genitals), Taurus, Leo, Libra.

Pisces is interesting in this regard because of the 17th degree of Pisces – This is the most sexual degree of the tropical zodiac. Venus-Mars contacts are known for their increased effect on zest for life, creativity and libido.



Venus-Neptune contacts often increase interest in eroticism and the need to be fully immersed in something, including a sexual experience or moment.

Pluto-Charon implodes the central Venusian faculty of connecting into either an extraordinary artistic talent (Manuel de Falla) or the radicalization of sexuality. This last feature can go into two directions. Hence we see the Pluto-Charon-Venus connection prominent in both the horoscopes of sexologists/therapists and those of prostitutes, porn-actors or porn-producers. There are many asteroids who show a link with sexuality and eroticism.



Sex asteroids ad a new dimension

A serious investigation into sex asteroids obviously goes a long way beyond the familiar beaten path. The sexual dimension of man covers not only an average vanilla sex life as promoted in soap operas, but also countless excesses and deviations. For better or for worse. The mix of sexuality with abuse and criminality also falls within this scope.

Before we go to the overview an important golden rule: When you include asteroids in a horoscope you must realize that the conjunction with a planet within an orb of 1 degree is most important. Then the opposition within 1 degree. The influence of an asteroid requires a very close aspecting. un effect is often well noticeable 30 arch-minutes (so half a degree) before and after the exact conjunction.
