If you have Scorpio as your Rising sign, you are very strong-willed and proud, but intensely private and not easy to know well. Behind your quiet exterior lies a great deal of emotional depth, sensitivity, complexity, and fierce determination. When you want something, you go after it rather quietly but insistently and wholeheartedly -- and you usually get it. Because of your natural reserve, others may see you as something of an enigma. You are quite self-protective and often defensive. You are also very magnetic, especially to potential love interests.
Venus conjunct Ascendant
You have a friendly, affectionate attitude toward others and a great deal of personal charm if you have Venus conjunct your Ascendant. Your attractiveness is one of the first things others notice about you and is probably something you care a great deal about. You get along well with people and know how to please them. You have a good sense of style and beauty.
Venus sextile Ascendant
You have a sweet, appealing demeanor and seem to instinctively grasp the concept that "you catch more flies with honey than with vinegar." Your personal brand of charm is usually quite winning. You coax rather than coerce. However, if you do not get what you want, you are likely to resort to insincere flattery, wheedling, whining, or pouting rather than stating directly what you need, or doing for yourself. You seem to need others' approval first.
Venus conjunct Midheaven
You gain your objectives and ambitions in life through your personal charm, attractiveness, and ability to please others visually and/or emotionally. A career in the arts or entertainment world is possible for you. Anything involving sales or promotion, particularly of beautiful or luxurious items, is an area you can succeed in. Vanity or indiscretions in relationships could lead to your downfall.
Venus sextile Pluto
If you have Venus sextile Pluto in your birth chart, your romantic relationships tend to be deep, intense, passionate, and highly emotional. It's all or nothing with you. Oftentimes you are irresistibly attracted to someone and you feel that you have very little choice or control over your powerful feelings. You may well be highly magnetic and sexually attractive yourself. Beware of using this power to manipulate people, for you could gain the reputation of being a user.
Venus square Mars
You are intensely amorous and attractive to the opposite sex and are not inclined to friendly, platonic relationships. There is much tension in your love life -- often because you put your desires ahead of your partner's and are impatient about having your love needs satisfied. The whole arena of love, romance, and sex is endlessly fascinating for you and you are not happy without a love partner. You can burn yourself out by pouring so much of your energy into romance.
Venus trine Ascendant
You have an appealing physical appearance and this, along with your winning ways, is apt to make you a favorite in your immediate environment. You're happy to give, and you know how to please others. Don't take your personal charm for granted, however, because you may also seem vain or too needy for approval.
Venus trine Pluto
You love deeply, passionately, and wholeheartedly, and others may find your intensity either extremely attractive or threatening. You are charismatic and can have a powerful emotional influence on others, especially those of the opposite sex. You may use your attractiveness to manipulate others, sometimes without even realizing it.
Pluto conjunct Ascendant
You are extremely willful, but often achieve your desires in a quiet, secretive, or manipulative way if you have Pluto conjunct your Ascendant. You may be intensely charismatic and wield considerable influence over others, or you may be attracted to such powerful, fascinating personalities. You tend to go to extremes in whatever you do. You can be compulsive and are driven by a sense of mission or destiny. You don't take anything at face value and are always digging beneath the surface for the deeper meaning or real motivations of others.
Pluto sextile Ascendant
You have penetrating insight into people and a keen eye and ear for the hidden, unspoken, behind-the-scenes elements in life. You may seem intense and make other people a bit uncomfortable at times. There is also a sexual quality in your manner which can be quite alluring, in a subtle way.
Pluto trine Ascendant
If you have Pluto trine your Ascendant, there is a certain intensity, charisma, or compelling attractiveness about you that may have little to do with your physical features. It's an energy, a subtle sexuality, that you emanate. Also, you tend to do everything wholeheartedly and with passion, which is quite fascinating to other people. Your instincts and psychological perceptions about others are quite incisive.
