Moon/Neptune Natives ~ Soft Aspects
Moon Trine Neptune
Rudolph Valentino (02’) lost his father aged 11 and was brought up spoilt and mollycoddled by his mother. He was troublesome at school and a drifter as a youth. He had a scandalous friendship with an heiress who during their time together shot her ex-husband. Valentino was forced to leave town to avoid further controversy. He found it hard to break into acting at first, due to his Latin looks which were not fashionable at the time. Valentino gained a reputation as a bit of a diva, scandal seems to follow him everywhere, divorce, bigamy trails and bad debts. Eventually he made it in films, women loved him but the male audience distrusted his exotic looks.
Valentino was seen as a threat to the butch, all American man. His masculinity was called into question due to such things as the use of pomade in his hair, his dandy-esque clothes and an ultra-romantic style of seduction. (Er, that’s just called being Italian…). In true Neptune style though, Valentino’s sexual orientation was a bit of a mystery. Two of his wives and one of his partners were known to have had lesbian affairs which fuelled speculation that Valentino was gay and that his relationships were “Lavender marriages”. However most biographers agree that it’s likely that Valentino was actually straight. He died very young at 31, his youth and good looks forever preserved on celluloid.

Barbara Cartland gushed her way to success with her world famous romantic novels. She refined over time her risqué earlier novels to the perfect formula still popular today. These later novels are much tamer, with virginal heroines and stereotypical chivalrous Neptunian saviours. True to Neptune’s perchance for swooning and unrequited love, there is very little down-and-dirty action in Barbara’s books. The setting of the novels are usually in a misty historic past where chastity was prized and purity believable. Part of the novel’s charm is that they transport you away from nasty modern and sweaty sex with its threat of venereal diseases and unwanted pregnancies. A vision in pink, Barbara was always dressed in her trademark fantasy fluffy gowns and sparkly jewels.
