Quincy Jones has given an astonishing interview to GQ magazine. He runs his mouth, to say the least. If you’re not up on this you can read some excerpts here: The 11 Best Quotes From GQ’s Quincy Jones Interview
Talk about throwing meat for the wolves! He mentions he’s a Pisces. I wanted to see what else he had going on. I also wanted to see what might have prompted this.
Mr Jones has a Scorpio moon in the first house and a stellium in Virgo opposing his Sun and Venus in Pisces. But that’s not what’s causing this. It’s a Jupiter Uranus event.
Mr Jones has Uranus in Aries in an exact square to Pluto in Cancer. He’s 84 years old. This is his Uranus return. Transiting Pluto in Capricorn is also involved. Here comes the shocking dirt!
Notice, he’s talking about the shadow side of the other (transiting Pluto opposite natal Pluto). I don’t see him listing any of his sins. It’s funny, huh?
Jupiter rules publishing as well as blurting of the truth. Currently, Jupiter is in Scorpio (more dirt), in tight aspect to Mr. Jones’ natal Uranus in Aries. Shot heard ’round the world?
I could stop here but because his birthday is near, I decided to peak at his Solar Return chart. I don’t know where Mr. Jones resides but I can tell you he has a Solar Return Aquarius Moon and Mars in Sagittarius squaring Uranus and Venus. That suggests more upset.
To counter this, Venus and Mercury are in Aries, square Saturn in Capricorn. This suggests someone will try to shut him up. I don’t know that they’ll be successful.
Keep an eye out for his age peers. Others with the Uranus Pluto square. It’s going to be interesting.

UPDATE – A reader emailed me:
“I just saw a GQ interview from January 2018 with Quincy Jones on youtube in which he mentions at the 23:24 mark that his ascendant is Leo. He incorrectly says his descendant is Scorpio, which we know would not be true. However the Leo ascendant matches with a birthtime online of 3:40 pm from astro.com astrodatabank…”
I checked astrodatabank which now as a 3:00 pm time listed. Click to Quincy Jones’ chart with Leo Rising, which should be considered “approximate”. This does not alter my interpretation.
Did you read the interview? Do you know anyone from this era with Uranus square Pluto in their chart?
