Venus as karaka for one's sexual orientation?
Would we consider Ve as a karaka for one's sexual orientation: like if they are straight, gay, non binary ect.?
I was recently looking at a chart with Ve shamed by Su and Ke in Leo. It was a gay woman who confirmed what I thought - that her father gave her a very hard time about being gay from a young age (in 2nd house).
No, not at all. Sexual orientation is determined by planets in 7th, with 7th lord, and saturn impacting sun and 10th for men and moon and 4th for woman.
I dont remember where i covered it.
ketu is also a eunuch, so look for first house factors to be influenced by eunuch's and 7th by opposite gender planets and eunuchs.
Yes, you can.
I have the same conjunction in Libra in my 2nd house. In my case, one of the ways that the shame of Venus manifested itself was: I met someone with the same conjunction (same d/o/b) who made me feel like I wasn't good enough to be with them. And although this happened 6 years ago, I'm still working on getting over this person. However, because Venus is also Svastha in my chart, this person was never intentionally harmful in their actions towards me—quite the opposite, in fact. So maybe because she also has a starved Venus in Leo, the effects of the Venus shaming were more directly damaging to her? @scott-m-19
