Virgo of the Month: American actor, Freddie Mercury

“Seek your happiness in the happiness of all.”

– Zoroaster

Freddie Mercury, lead singer for the British band Queen came from a deeply religious family who followed the teaching of Zoroaster. He was born on September 5, 1946, in Zanzibar and grew up there and in India until his mid-teens, before moving with his family to Middlesex, England.

With his Sun in conservative Virgo, he was naturally shy in private. In public the singer with a Leo ascendant and Moon in Sagittarius, became a flamboyant stage personality with a four- octave vocal range. He was also generous--volunteering for 1985 Live Aid concert and supporting other charities.

His unusual musical talent is seen by four planets—Mars, Neptune, Jupiter, and Venus in the artistic sign of Libra. The Mars-Neptune combination was in good aspect to the planet of genius, Uranus, which gave musical ability. His Venus conjunct lucky Jupiter also made a trine to Uranus—a sure sign for his popularity, creativity, and fame.

Success came early for the singer-composer. He founded Queen in 1970 with Brian May and Roger Taylor. The band was one of the hottest in the 1970s and1980s with "Bohemian Rhapsody," ""Somebody to Love,” and "Crazy Little Thing Called Love." ‘By their the tenth anniversary, Queen had become one of the biggest bands in the world, selling over 45 million albums and 25 million singles worldwide.

Sadly, fame did not bring happiness. His horoscope indicated that bisexual Mercury was a driven man (Moon opposite Uranus). As he explained, “There’s a voice inside me saying, “Slow down, Freddie. You’re going to burn yourself out.” The legendary singer died far too early - at age forty-five. On November 24 1991, Freddie Mercury lost his battle with AIDS. The remaining members of Queen founded The Mercury Phoenix Trust which has since raised millions for various AIDS charities.

After struggling for a breakthrough in film, Chastain had six releases in 2011 and she gained wider public recognition for her performance in The Help.

Her horoscope indicates good opportunity along with some struggles. To begin with, Chastain was born with her Sun in the dynamic sign of Aries in good aspect to the patient planet, Saturn.

Both planets trine the planet of inspiration, Neptune, which favors acting as well as the disciplined planet, Saturn. This is give the actress the talent, drive and opportunity to succeed.

In 2018, the couple welcomed a daughter through surrogacy and later had a second daughter. The family of four resides in New York City.

Motherhood is not likely to slow Jessica Chastain down. With Mercury exactly opposite the compulsive Pluto, it is hard for the new mother to completely relax! She also has strong opinions. That may be why she is drawn to roles of emotionally fierce but flawed heroines such as Mira in Scenes from a Marriage. Chastain is a feminist and an advocate for equal pay in the workplace. If a movie salary is unfair, she turns down the film.

Watch for more accolades and success in both acting and directing. With the good luck planet Jupiter going over Jessica Chastain’s Sun, Mercury, and Venus in Aries, she is not about the retire. April 2022-April 2023 looks like a banner year for this movie star!

Pisces of the Month: Edgar Cayce

Edgar Cayce was born on March 18, 1877. He was an American trance medium who answered questions on healing, astrology, reincarnation, Atlantis, and future events. During his lifetime, “the Sleeping Prophet” gave approximately 30,000 life-readings and medical diagnosis to people. He believed that astrology was a fact and that it is useful in understanding the road map of one's life. According to Edgar Cayce, the placement of the planets indicated past-life influences and planetary journeys. He believes that “Individuals do not meet by chance. They are necessary for the experiences of others, though they may not always use their opportunities in a spiritual way or manner.”

Cayce’s sun in the mystical sign of Pisces in the eighth house of the occult definitely indicated a psychic nature. The Sun in good aspect to Pluto in Taurus in the tenth house of career showed he would be recognized for this unique talent. His Moon in Taurus gave him an easy-going nature, unless crossed. Then Cayce could show a stubborn streak. His Moon conjunct Neptune in the ninth house of the higher mind and dreams gave him access to the world beyond through the trance state. Cayce’s chart is not without its flaws. His moon in Taurus makes a wide square to Uranus in the first house indicating a strong will and ego. However, Edgar Cayce worked hard to maintain a spiritual perspective. Disciplined by nature, he read the Bible each year of his life and placed great faith in his teachings.

Aquarius of the Month: Oprah Winfrey

Oprah Winfrey was born January 29, 1954 at 4:30 a.m. in Kosciusko, Mississippi. Despite being born in the Deep South to a single mother, Oprah became one of the riches woman in America. Her journey to success was not an easy one. She was sexually abused and gave birth to a baby boy at age 14. Beautiful, articulate and highly intelligent, she managed to overcome her impoverish life. By 19 she dropped out of college to become a CBS news journalist-the first female African American newscaster in Nashville, Tennessee. She worked her way up the media ladder rapidly. On September 8, 1986, “The Oprah Winfrey show” made its debut. The popular TV program was on the air for 25 years. On January 1, 2001, she started her own network — appropriately called OWN.

The media star and business woman has her Sun in the independent sign of Aquarius and her Moon in the optimistic and visionary sign of Sagittarius. With seven of her ten planets on the side of free will, her fiery spirit and independent streak helped her to make it on her own. Her biggest challenge in her horoscope is the Sun (ego) and Venus (love) making square to Saturn — the planet of discipline. Her early upbringing left her feeling unwanted and unloved. Feelings of depression lead to stress-eating.

Eventually, Oprah’s life improved due to a grand trine in her horoscope. Her Venus in Aquarius, Sun in Aquarius, and Mercury in Aquarius all trine the good-luck planet, Jupiter, and the cosmic planet Neptune. Oprah was born with diving protection (Jupiter) and intuition (Neptune) .She also had a drive to succeed with these planets in second house (money), sixth house (work), and tenth house (career). Her career would have would take a back seat to love. Relationships with men tended to be short-lived until she met executive Stedman 1986. The couple does not wish or perhaps need to be married. A tight square between Venus (love and money) and Saturn (limitations) in Oprah’s horoscope could indicate financial reasons behind the arrangement.

In 2003, Oprah was made the Forbes Magazine list of billionaires. Mars in Scorpio gives her a strong physical drive and a square to Mercury a need to be mentally active. In 2007, she invested of $40 million to open a school in Henly-on-Klip, South Africa for 152 impoverished girls aged 11 and 12. Oprah Winfred called the school “the fulfillment of my work on earth.”
