Celebrity Astrology Reading: Stevie Nicks – Children & Marriage

 

This image was taken from AstroTheme. Please go there to get more detail on the chart, etc.

Stevie Nicks Natal Chart

From Wikipedia:

In a 1989 interview, Stevie gave personal insight as to the meaning of Rooms on Fire:

Rooms on Fire is about a girl who goes through a life like I have gone through, where she finally accepts the idea that there never will be those other things in her life. She will never be married, she will never have children, she will never do those [that] part of life.

We all have our own path, our own karma. Children, spouses, and the traditional trappings isn’t for everyone. I’m just thoroughly impressed that Stevie Nicks knew this or got an astrology consultation to make her aware of it — maybe she even gave herself an astrology consultation.

No children is indicated by Saturn and Pluto in her 5th house but it’s made more difficult by being conjunct. Leo is also one of the barren signs. You would think that wouldn’t be the case since Leo is playful and child-like but that’s exactly why Leo on the 5th house cusp can cause barrenness. That placement suggests the native is a child themselves and can not be responsible. And any child she would have had (probably a boy) would quite possibly have died.

In regards to lack of marriage, in her romance and dating house (the progression from dating to marriage) she more than likely had destructive romances that tested her will (Mars Conjunct Pluto). In her 8th house (House of Domination) she has South Node Conjunct Chiron (I use wide orbs). Marriage wounded her in a past life and continues to wound her. Neptune (which is square her Venus) is near this house cusp (the 6th house, House of Submission) and it’s here where she would attract men of addiction, fantasy, and illusion. In fact, she would likely have this as part of her nature as well — perhaps wanting to be Cinderella and finding her Prince but no mere mortal man could ever be a true fairytale Prince. With the house cusp having the sign in Libra, we have a house that is ruled by Venus and Juno. Any committed partnership could be met with mind games and mental abuse.

She did marry but it was for convenience and surrounding a long time chronic illness of her friend (she married her friend’s widow) – see South Node Conjunct Chiron in the 8th.  Perhaps it was a karmic debt repaid..

Virgo & Sorting

This goes out to all my Pisces brothers and sisters, the other half of Virgo.  Sorting is fun stuff if you play it like a ‘game’ with a ‘mission’ and all that. Imagine sinking into a sea and coming out into a clear spring… sorting the debris from the clean shiny stuff, is refreshing. Take a dip!

Astrology & Interpretation

There are many ways to interpret things. I’m glad astrology is not cut and dry science ‘only’ because human beings would be one boring lot. ;P Astrology is an art and a science. Computers largely do the scientific work now and astrologers mostly interpret the positions of the planets, luminaries, stars, asteroids, and other cosmic ‘stuff’ into something that non-astrologers can understand. It’s a language.

Sesquiquadrate or Sesquisquare

There seems to be three main themes that come out of the Sesquiquadrate: Adolescence & Maturity, Abnormal Different Ability, and Unaccepted & Unusual Awareness.

Aspects: Saturn-Uranus

Saturn-Uranus in disharmony, is like Authority-Rebel or Parent-Teenager or Teacher-Student. These two planets in conversation, are hashing it out and don’t see eye-to-eye.

Traditional Chinese Music

Positive, joyful energy… reminds me of watching the Tai Chi practitioners on top of the Riverdale Park hill in Toronto, while riding the streetcar, on a beautiful day with wind breezing across my face.

The Artist’s Brush is the Cross One May Have to Bare

As I left the AGO (Art Gallery of Ontario), I saw a student (from whom I suspect was coming from OCAD – Ontario College of Art & Design) carrying a large brush made out of cardboard on his shoulder — it looked like an art piece but it also reminded me of Jesus and the bible story of him walking with the cross to a painful outcome.  Then I had a thought. The brush represented the cross some artists must bare. Very Neptunian.  I wonder if the student had the same idea.

TimeBoxing: Virgo, Capricorn, Mars Square Saturn

Awhile ago I was having immense trouble with my Mars Square Saturn aspect and getting stuff done. I was frustrated, overwhelmed, and my work was imbalanced.

No matter what I got done, I felt it wasn’t enough and that stuff was being left out. So I decided, enough was enough, and set out to create solutions for this problem.

Recently I found out, through Leah Whitehorse, that one of the solutions actually has a name and formal process to it. It’s called Timeboxing – a time management technique, can turn a Mars-Saturn, in hard aspect, to a harmonious one.

If you or your client experiences work related frustration, delays, overwork, etc. consider mentioning Timeboxing (if you don’t already).

For myself, I rotate tasks and jobs throughout the month, and I do a variety of things throughout the day without the expectation that I will complete any of them by the end of day. Some I will and some I won’t and that’s okay because I have a “plan”. :D

Note that I have Gemini on my 6th house cusp and variety is essentially within my day-to-day tasks and how I manage my time.

Somehow I get more done, feel more accomplished and relaxed, don’t neglect one thing for another, and feel less frustrated because I’m getting somewhere — I can see the results.

Hope this helps for someone else. Cheers!

Being an Artist

Tonight a lady gasped in delight that I was drawing and she remarked about how lucky I was to be able to do what I do and I said, “Nah, I’m just drawing squares and circles!”… “Maybe that’s what the gallery will do for you, inspire your inner artist too.”…
