I’m not keen on celebrity astrology for a number of reasons. However, I recently saw a chart for Mick Jagger that raised a few questions. To the best of my knowledge there are no Traditional readings of Jagger’s chart either published in book form or on the Internet. I’ll be reading the chart, looking for some very specific things. There are many readings of the chart on the internet using modern astrology, usually with a heavy focus on Pluto in Leo at the expense of the Traditional planets and luminaries.
I have no interest in doing a fully comprehensive reading. I’m most interested in the interplay of Solar and Lunar elements in Jagger’s chart. The natal information is 26 Jul 1943 . 6:30 am . Dartford, UK,
If quadrant houses are used, the Sun is in the Twelfth House. If you know anything about Mick Jagger, that doesn’t resonate at all. Yes, he also has Leo on the Ascendant and Mercury and Jupiter in the same sign, but I believe a First House Sun has gone a long way towards his enduring charisma as the greatest and longest performing front man for a rock and roll band. I saw them in concert in 1972 and was mesmerized by Jagger. It was quite unlike any other experience I had at dozens of other concerts
However, there is a strong counterbalance to all this Solar energy in the Eleventh House Moon exalted in Taurus, but Void of Course and conjunct Algol, the Demon Star. She is also besieged by Saturn and Mars. The Lord of the Geniture is Saturn. The Hour and the Day belong to the Moon. The chart Almuten is the Moon.
A Void of Course Moon in the Nativity ought to be considered as much as it is in Horary or Electional Astrology. In the natal chart it signals something of an emotional disconnect.
The last aspect made by the Moon was a Square to the Nodes and in fact by sign squares all the First House Leo planets.
This gives us very different view of Jagger, one that makes sense of the Solar but demonic energy he’s was famous for during the heyday of the Rolling Stones.
It’s widely rumoured that Jagger was involved in and affair with Anita Pallenberg in 1969. She had been Brian Jones girlfriend before starting a life with Keith Richards. Pallenberg is said to have been breathtakingly beautiful, with a bizarre interest in what appears to be black magic
During the free Concert at Altamont Raceway in the last days of the 1960s, Jagger was in his Moon / Sun Fidar. In many respects Altamont was a defining moment. The band had hired the Hell’s Angels as security and paid them with alcohol in advance.
Jerry Garcia said it was “a nice day in Hell” Sympathy for the Devil was played, producing a powerful and negative effect on the audience. Violence ensued. Following Woodstock the previous Summer, The Stones had again furthered their reputation of embodying the darker elements of the ’60s and Mick Jagger was the face of the band.
This has just been a short sketch using Traditional Astrology to read Jagger’s chart. If the Solar / Lunar elements are properly read, you can see the irrelevance of the outer planets
