“I’ll shoot the Moon right out of the sky…”
Neptune and Venus are associated with music. Leo and the 5th house are associated with creativity. Mercury is the senses and the voice. So where do we find our capacity and tastes for music? All of these can be involved, in combination. Other planets and houses in the mix flavor this as well. I have Venus in Aries and enjoy simple, military-style music. I have Jupiter in Neptune’s house, the 12th, with Mercury in Pisces (Neptune ruled). I like gospel and love to sing. Venus on the cusp of the 8th/9th likes deep, sexy music and world music.
Pallas Athena shows whole pattern intelligence; in aspect to Neptune or Venus it can denote an affinity for songwriting or appreciating the finer or higher mathematical qualities of music. Leo and fifth house planets often give a flair for performance. Add in some Uranus aspects and you may like shocking or unusual music, perhaps see the beauty in dissonance. Add in the Moon and it becomes emotionally affecting.
I also find it interesting to look at the charts of my favorite musicians and compare them to my own. It’s striking to see their connections to my musical, aesthetic and creativity placements.
What are your musical tastes? Can you see the astrology behind them?
