Planetary Pool

I am mega earth with Capricorn rising, Sun Virgo and Toro Moon.  So here’s a Toro tour of some of my earth stuff while I talk astro. (Translation: Toros like stuff, are earthy, and my Toro moon is on the 4th house of home.)

Earthy people= practical, skillful, grounded, sensate
Fire people= energetic, courageous, inspiring, adventurous
Air people= intellectual, social, thoughtful wordy ones
Water people= emotional, romantic, intuitives, secretive

Sounds simple doesn’t it…?…but what is so great about natal charts is they are as richly textured and layered as the most finely crafted spiderweb.  For instance, my ruling planet, Saturn (earth) is in fire (Aries) on air (3rd house of Gemini (air).  Fire likes fire and air.  Fire does not like earth and water.

Translation: Saturn (limits) wants to stay, Aries (risks) wants to go, and Gemini (air) is here talking about it.  It has taken 40 + years to talk about it because my Saturn is Rx (retrograde) which means it works inwardly until ready to manifest outwardly.

Cardinal= activity, where the action is, self-starters & go-getters
Fixed= stable, building from ideas of cardinals, desires and emotions
Mutable= adaptable, changing, people people, the glue between the two

Going deeper still, my chart ruler, Saturn, rules a cardinal sign (Capricorn), is in a cardinal sign (Aries) on a mutable house (Gemini).  Translation: The tenants (planets placed in the sign visiting natural house) like to get their way, but the landlord (the natural house) is more easy-going.
Who wins..?
Ask me any given day and you’ll get a different answer because transits (what the planets are doing overhead now) will be knocking vibrations off my natal chart positions like Minnesota Fats shooting 10 balls into the side pockets.  Some days the energies drop hard, other days just a gentle little tap.
The same is true of your chart.

Voodoo Woman

Susan Tedeschi has loved music from a very young age. She joined a band at 13, wrote her first song at 14, sang gospel choir, and later graduated from the Berklee College of Music with a degree in jazz and rock.   According to her Lillith Fair bio: she found little inspiration in the church choir, and so attended predominantly African-American Baptist churches, feeling the music was “less repressed and more like a celebration of God.”
She is an outstanding vocalist and guitarist; nominated for several Grammys, and is the winner of numerous W.C. Handy Blues Awards.
Susan is an 11 life path- 11 is a master number for those who lead lives of inspiring others and service to the greater good of humanity.

Wowsers.  Look at that 8th house.  Susan is a Pisces rising with a chart ruler of Neptune (rules string instruments) packed into a powerful Scorpio stellium.  Ummm, dirty blues, yeah !

Sun is sandwiched between the two benefics Venus and Jupiter; an indication of a loving, generous spirit.  Mercury and Neptune conjunct give her a penetrating musical presence; guitar and voice.
Deep feeling Moon conjunct Chiron in trine to the stellium, emotional healing through the power of music.  I am inclined to think that North Node (purpose in life) at 29 degrees between Aquarius (electricity) and Pisces (Neptune rules) means ‘electric guitar’.
Judging by her powerful 7th house (relationships, including marriage) her husband, Derek Trucks has obviously had a huge impact (Mars, energy, desires/ Uranus, innovation, telepathy) on her artistically (Venus or art -rules Libra).  They speak the same musical language and find transcendence through intuitive musical expression.
