Karen Carpenter Astrology Chart

Karen Carpenter Astrology Chart

Karen Carpenter – drummer, angelic singer, tiny, anorexic, with a longevity that many celebrities long for.

She was born in New Haven Connecticut at 11:45am  on Thursday March 2 1950.

 

Uranus on the Ascendent? I think she really wanted to be a girl drummer doing the “exotic beats” that she was known for playing when a very young girl. Mars conjunct South Node in the 5th house brings neediness to romance, falling on partners (Libra) to fulfill oneself. The North Node in Aries insists on standing alone, leading and innovating in a solo way. If she hadn’t passed on at the age of 32,  I think she would’ve continued to move away from “partnerships” to solo performances. But the need to have a brother, a lover, a partner would always be there – Men are Mars and it’s tough to move away from a Mars/South Node conjunction. Her solo album which her brother and producer didn’t like that much and the recording studio wasn’t happy with was canned and she went back into a partnership with Richard Carpenter. Tough for an Aries North Node that must keep competing to stand alone.

The Sun on the Midheaven cannot hide their light under a bushell. Ever. Venus in the 8th house has to express love and emotion at a real level, to crowds (Aquarius). This is not ‘pop’ music but ‘real’ emotion being produced.

Artist: David Hockney

Artist: David Hockney

A fascinating insight into the artist David Hockney’s chart over at Learning Curve on the Ecliptic:

I’m not sure how I’ve managed to avoid David Hockney in the Arty-Farty series ’til now – a “Yorkie”, like DavidHockneyme. He was born in Bradford, Yorkshire, UK on 9 July 1937. Cancerian influence is prominent in his chart, Sun and Mercury conjoined are in Cancer along with Pluto. If he was born before 6am then Moon also would have been in Cancer.

It’s interesting that so many of his paintings feature water – Cancer being the Cardinal Water sign of the zodiac.

Without a time of birth for Hockney we can’t know his ascendant. He’s described as “gregarious” and an “ebullient” personality, which brings to mind Sagittarius or Leo rising – but that’s a wild guess.

I didn’t know much about David Hockney, but I am now interested in him. Like I said, great article, you should definitely read it!

What will the year ahead bring for Australia?

With a horary chart like this one – actually it’s an event chart but never mind – it’s best to pay attention to the angles. Libra on the ascendant for Australians means a year of dealing with partnerships and allies.  Aries on the descendant brings a focus on war around partners. I think Iraq and bringing home our soldiers will be a huge focus. This is reinforced by The Sun in Capricorn at 10 degrees exactly on the nadir. Cancer rules the fourth house of home and is the exact reverse of Capricorn. There will be a public bringing home (to the fourth house) of those who are away. Capricorn on the nadir will probably also keep the focus on business and the economy at home. Australian exports may do surprisingly well, considering this is a global crisis.

Mercury conjunct Jupiter – expect a lot of news around media plus travel by our politicians. Again, allies and partners overseas may cause a lot of discussion.  I always look for a rule of three, and we have it here (Sun on Nadir, Mercury conjunct Jupiter, Libra ascendent).

Anyone else fed up with Saturn oppositie Uranus yet?

The Large Hadron Collider Launch

The Large Hadron Collider Launch

chart and horoscopeThe European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN) are preparing to turn on the Large Hadron Collider, is the world’s largest particle accelerator (basically an atom smasher). The collider itself is enormous, a 27 km underground tube that lies under the Franco-Swiss border near Geneva, Switzerland.

That exact Jupiter/Saturn trine is so incredibly obvious – as is the Sun/Moon trine. Saturn is 12 degrees Virgo, Jupiter 12 degrees Capricorn. Saturn is small confined spaces, pressing in. Jupiter is large, growth, exploding out. Both traverse structures – Jupiter weaves in and around, Saturn is the backbone. The Sun/Moon mirrors this compression/expansion theme – Sun 17 Virgo, Moon 17 Capricorn. It’s gonna be one helluva bang!

Plus an exact conjunction of Mars, Venus and Mercury at 14 degrees Libra – small pieces (Mercury) as Masculine and Feminine meet in the sign of unity. Worlds collide?

Madonna’s marriage and Saturn

Madonna’s marriage and Saturn

A great article here at Astrology of a Train Wreck about Guy Ritchie and Madonna’s marriage and possible break up.

madonnaguyReports are out that Madonna and Guy Ritchie are headed to the divorce court just a week after her adoption of African baby David Banda was approved.

Madonna married Guy about 7 years ago, when Saturn was transitting her 10th house of public fame and recognition and highest point of her chart. This transit was also about the time Saturn opposed her natal Saturn, a highly significant event, in the sector of home and family. Saturn, moreover, formed a number of favorable aspects during that period to her Sun, Pluto and Uranus indicating she was at the age and maturity to give up some personal control in order create a family. She may have married more for the sake of being married, as a lot of women do, as her Saturn opposition on her fame and family axis probably strengthened feelings that it was lonely at the top. She even admitted in an MTV interview, she “got married for all the wrong reasons”.

I particularly responded to “got married for all the wrong reasons”. Saturn will have something to say about that!
