eye color? dimples?

topic posted Wed, November 8, 2006 - 12:40 AM by  Valerie
I know there are many, many opinions on how our rising signs correlate with physical appearance or mannerisms; however, I'm curious to know more about specific physical traits (ie. hair/eye color, prominent nose, dimples, freckles, etc.) and how they correlate with any sign regardless of where that sign happens to be in a chart (ie. rising, moon, mars, neptune, etc.)

For example, I have read that Libra often indicates dimples; elsewhere a friend of mine was told by an astrologer that the green in her eyes (hazel) indicate Virgo in her chart, and low and behold, my friend had a mercury and venus in virgo.

Soooo.... I am wondering if anyone has any knowledge or witness to this sort of thing, or if they feel like it's a crock of shitake.

If you do happen to feel there is truth in this, is it to the point that you may see someone with a certain feature and know that a certain sign HAS to be in their astrological make-up? What are the traits that seem to consistently reflect a particular sign?

      my buddy there with the ice blue eyes is a virgo sun with an aries moon and a scorpio rising. I know this really hot chick who has sun, merc, ven, mars and saturn in leo and a scorpio rising. she has very dark eyes. I *think* they are brown. Dont really know if astrology has anything to do with it. But she has that leo jawline.

      I will take a guess- I love to guess at these things.
      You have a strong Saturn/ Mars thing happening -but this is not the rising sign.
      The rising sign is probably closely between cancer and leo -I say more leo because of the mane but the complextion takes on the water sign and the curl in the hair is more water elelement.
      It would be difficult to say unless I saw your hands or heard your voice and knew some things about you and that is only a picture -the one on your card looks more cancer because of the eyes but the close up picture shows a callick in your hair -do you like your hair -p.S. the question is another clue for me .
      Your moon is capricorn your tongue is a give away -so your sun sign must be Aries -

    I'm a libra sun, gemini rising and I did have dimples when I was small but they've kind of gone now. My sister did too and still has them and shes a scorpio sun, scorpio rising.

    I am a gemini rising with blue eys and dark brown hair. The only thing I've read (and remembered) about gemini rising appearance is a youthful appearance and at 31 I still sometimes get asked for ID when i'm in the pub!

      The best book I've found on this subject is Judith A. Hill "The Astrological Bodytypes, Face, Form and Expression" She doesn't just go by ascendant but also counts the influence of sun, moon and planets near angles. She has a great understanding astro-physiognomy, makes fun illustrative drawings and is obviously an expert in the field. Highly recommended. According to her chin dimples are a sign of Mars. She doesn't go much into eye colors, but my experience is that gray eye color often appears with Capricorn / Saturn influence. Of course most of that is genetics...

        Dimples can usually be an indication of sign Libra being in the mix -That is the way I see it anyhow.

          I guess I will have to include mars now.
          I often can find where saturn or neptune belongs in people over 20 -the outer planets in the first house often the face has moles or birth spots -beauty marks.

            Gemini sun, Sag rising, Mars in CAncer...
            I have very very dark eyes, so is my mom who's Sag rising and my sis too.
            Auburn hair, had freckle growing up (I and I was blonde) on my face, but I had so many freckels left on arms and legs! not really red head type freckles, just freckles, or beauty marks I guess!
            My little got these green hazel eyes we don't know where she got them from, she's Capricorn sun but I'm still trying to find out for sure if she's Gemini rising or Virgo, her Mars....can't remember...

    Well, I have big brown eyes, and get called out on them all the time. Also, recently, I've been getting alot of compliments on my nose. That its very distinctive and it has a great shape. Funny thing, I've never been too fond of my nose, but eh.
    I also have really fine and thin hair, but I think thats more of a hereditary thing than anything. what am I???

    Scorpio Sun, Aquarius ascendant

    I am often told I have intense eyes. I think because of the color; they are light hazel green / brown. I often forget that people like them when they are looking at me.

    most scorpios I know, really do have an intense gaze.

    Cap sun, Leo Rising, Scorpio Moon.

    I have a dimple on my left cheek when I smile, huge almost black hair, and blue eyes. I have always felt I have the typical Capricorn look. Long neck, strong bone structure and very "womanly' figure. In other princess. But I am very funny if I do say so myself ...;-)

    I found that Juith Bennetts books - can't remember which one but the one that focused on each female of the sign had really good physical descriptions. Its a purple book. She died on a plane crash before she could finish it.

    I have dark, brown eyes and I'm a Libra sun.

    It seems that more introverted signs have lighter eyes (Cancers, Taurus, etc.) and more outgoing signs (like Libras) have darker eyes. Like even if Cancers have brown eyes, they'll be lighter. This is just based on Sun sign. Has anybody else noticed this?

      If I think about people I know, yes, the ones that have darker eyes have a more outgoing personality.

        Yep there's lots of physical traits that tell me the sun signs...I've been trying to guess signs by how people look....Leo has that gorgious, full head of hair, Scorpio intense eyes, burn right through ya or there's a squint they do....when they don't like something, almost snake like, heee heeeee, I'm a Libra and yep I've got those dimples ; ), we also have big bedroom eyes :::blink blink::::, Geminis have an almost childlike look in their eyes, the look of "yes, I can see the future, it's just like Star Trek", fabulous imaginations!!! Capricorns...ooooooo brooding faces sometimes.

          Sagittarius sun, Leo rising, Aquarius moon:

          Brown hair with a red/gold cast to it, long and flowing and wavy, which I tend to toss around a lot, twirl around my fingers, etc...,etc... It actually used to be a lot thicker than it is now, but I went blonde a few years ago and the bleaching process was not friendly to my hair.

          Brown eyes that I'm told will look right through you (Mercury in Scorp?)

          I have a small mole under my lower lip, but I have no idea what that might be indicative of.

          Additionally, I have three Libra sun students that I can think of off the bat who have very charming dimples indeed!

      I disagree Anna, out of all of the Cancers(about 5) and Taurus(3) people I know, they all have brown eyes, with the exception of 2 Cancers. They have hazel eyes and are brother and sister. I'm a Cancer with brown eyes, but I never really noticed if they were on the lighter shade of brown.

        I don't know, it was just a theory. I know it's not always true, but it seems like most of the time it is. Maybe it depends on your rising sign too.

        Also, I'm a Taurus rising too ...and I have big brown eyes and I also have really fine, thin hair.

          I've noticed that with the majority of librans, there are two groups: the blondes / fair haired / light-eyed and the dark haired / fair-skinned / dark-eyed. Maybe it's just a coincidence, but all of the libras I've known have belonged to one of these two groups.

          I'm a taurus rising and the one thing that I've noticed in all taurus risings (esp. females) is the smile. They usually have very sweet, sometimes shy smiles and like to smile a lot. I do at least. . . I have dimples, too, and dark brown eyes. I sort of resemble a cow. . . haha
          I suppose that's typical of taurus rising.

          I'd have to say the most obviouc rising sign is scorpio, esp. in men. I can always pick them out by their eyebrows--they're usually dark, oftentimes darker than the hair covering their heads. They also look like they're trying to seduce you, even when they're probably not. My Aquarius friend has scorpio rising and he has red-brown curly hair with straight, jet black eyebrows and dark eyes. He looks like a gargoyle sometimes, too, because he has terrible posture and appears to be brooding much of the time.

            I agree with everything you said, esp. the part about Scorpios. Like if you showed me a bunch of random pictures of people and asked me to guess their sun sign, and one was a Scorpio, I'd probably by able to detect them first. Maybe it's because I'm Taurus rising and Scorpio is directly opposite from Taurus (and Taurus is also related to your physical being), but I have noticed that out of all signs I can detect Scorpios the easiest.

    I have a virgo asc, ppl have told me I look it, regarding my elongated body, limbs face ect, I also have libra in the first intercepted, with ruler venus in aries in the 7th without any major aspects, my hair has natural gingery/golden bands through it. with scorpio in the first as well a a pluto saturn conjucntion, with blonde and quite dark bands in my hair as well, Im not sure if this is all my asc or just genectics, funny tho as my eyes are a blue green quite piscean Im told due to my sun, sun is opposing asc and neptune square asc, ppl tell me Im really otherworldly. Im guessing the netune pisces sun thing. I find my apperance very changable probably due to the highly mutable chart I have, I can dye my hair or buy a new outfit, or a new style and ppl don't recognise me, maybe neptune illusion again.
