On this blog I show the pattern of artistic talent in the charts of artists and here is the chart of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
Special person, special chart...And what is it that makes the chart of Mozart that special?
1. Venus is calling!
Venus is not making aspects in sign or orb 5 degrees. That makes the planet of style, beauty and talents a prominent planet in this chart. Venus is one of the components to create artistic skills. The other one is Neptune...
2. Mercury-Neptune with MC
Neptune is sextile Midheaven
Mercury is trine Midheaven
Mercury rules the Midheaven and is opposition Neptune. This again illustrates art related to the career. Together they symbolize artistic communications.
3. Venus AND Uranus important...
Music often is related to Venus-Uranus for sense of rhythm. The chart of Mozart has it: Venus is 'calling'(see 1.) and Uranus is angular (on a prominent spot on the Descendant).
The Moon is quintile Venus. The quintile is a creative aspect. Moon-Venus combinations symbolize sense of art. Moon quintile Venus shows a creative sense of art and beauty.
5. Sun/Moon related to Venus
I almost forgot to mention that Venus is in Aquarius and related to the midpoint Sun/Moon: he was in heart and soul a talented person!
6. Saturn rules the 5th house of (pro-)creativity. Mozart was creative and procreative. He had a lot of children and unfortunately some of them died young.
So far the artistic pattern. But there is more...
7. Lots of combinations for successes
The amount of midpoint and aspect combinations for success is amazing! I counted 18, and that is a lot and that is why he is still a success today.
8.The Ascendant in the 13th degree of Virgo is a degree of harmony and serenity.
And here are indicated circumstances:
9. The background...
Moon is exactly conjunct Pluto in the 4th house and quintile Venus, sextile Jupiter. This is not only a combination for success (Moon, Jupiter, Pluto and Venus, Jupiter,Pluto) but also gives us information about his early years. He had to go on tour with his father at age 8 years old! Today we should call this exploitation. Another thing is that his environment and education (Moon) was important as a background. His father was a composer, too.
Notice that pnly people born around the hour hat Mozart was born have such a combination and in those days, few people were born at the same hour. But what does it mean? You could read the pattern like this: enormous (Pluto) progression (Jupiter) with an artistic (Venus) ingenuity (Moon), an great potential of sense of art as a background (the 4th house).
10. Unlimited ideas...
Sun and Mercury are in opposition with Neptune. Besides unlimited fantasy this combination also creates delusions like the ones he had in his last years. Though this overload of ideas made him very productive (also notice that Mars is square Aries Point for production), it certainly may have made him vulnerable, too.
What makes this chart so special is the unique mixture of great talent, genes, education and a busy life full of chances with the tragedy of every days life on the background.
