with an emphasis in Fire, because she may feel she lacks these qualities in herself, although the passion and intensity that comes from planets in Fire signs is often similar to the emotional intensity associated with planets in Water signs. She may also  nd partners with an emphasis in Air signs quite appealing, particularly as the one planet she has in Air is her
Moon in Libra.
Brown’s Descendant and Vertex
are both in Virgo, so on a conscious and unconscious level, she  nds the practical, analytical, discriminating qualities of Virgo very appealing.
Virgo is a Mutable Earth sign, and it’s the only one of the Earth signs that is comfortable operating in the mental and intellectual realms usually associated with the Air signs. In fact, this seems to  t particularly well with Brown’s Safety Needs: her Moon is in Libra (an Air sign), but the greatest number of votes on the Moon’s Board of Directors come from planets in Earth signs (Saturn in Capricorn, Mercury in Taurus).
We’ve considered Brown’s Fifth House (and her Moon, the ruler of the Fifth House) extensively, but not with regards to her love a airs and
casual romantic relationships.  at Venus is in her Fifth House, and so involved with her Moon, suggests

Mercury in Taurus rules Brown’s Seventh House of marriage; Mercury also rules her Fourth House, and is the almuten of the Eighth House. Brown’s Mercury is in her Second House, which suggests that she bene ts  nancially from marriage.
We could even go so far as to suggest that she also bene ts  nancially from divorce, because Mercury is also the almuten of the Eighth House (partner’s money), and Mercury in the Second House could be seen as alimony. Because Mercury also rules the Fourth House, Brown may marry a man who reminds her of her father.
Finally, Saturn in Capricorn rules her Eleventh House of friendships. Saturn, as we’ve noted, is the most digni ed planet in Brown’s chart. Her friendships are apt to be very important to her — and because Saturn is in the Tenth House, she’s likely to meet her friends through her career and public persona. It’s
