Astrology chart Jim Kerr (Simple Minds)
The Simple Minds have their come back with the Album 'Graffiti Soul' in this month. Reason enough to have a look at the astrology chart of Jim Kerr, the leader and singer of the band. Why is he the leader? Because his Sun does not make Ptolemaic ascpect in sign or orb 5 degrees. This prominent ('calling') Sun tells us that he is a performer, in the centre of attention, (pro-)creative or the leader...This is confirmed by Sun conjunct ASC/MC (leadership and performance is of crucial importance).
This is the artistic pattern in his chart:
1. Taurus Midheaven (ruled by Venus, planet of style and talent)
2. Venus sextile Neptune (artistic talent)
3. Venus square Midheaven
4. Moon square Midheaven (Moon and Venus with Midheaven for a sense of art needed in the profession)
5. Neptune 157.5 (sesquisquare and half semisquare) Midheaven
6. Venus semi square ASC/MC (style, talent)
7. Neptune square Sun/Moon (in heart and soul an artist)
For his success, see the angular positions of Jupiter and Pluto...For using his voice, notice that there are no placements in air signs. That implicates 'communications at any kind of level'.
The Simple Minds were established in 1977, with progressed Venus square progressed MC, activating the existing square of Venus and Midheaven in the natal chart. The band is over 32 years old and still alive and kicking! Taurus midheaven and the 70% of fixed signs in the chart of Kerr surely contribute to that fact.
In 2005 they had their first album in years: Black & White. That was when Kerr's progressed Sun had changed sign and was immediately conjunct his natal Venus. His life changed in a harmonious way!
Now transit Pluto is trine his progressed Midheaven and that is a fortunate sign for a come back. It means that there is a good opportunity (trine) to restore or transform (Pluto) the professional career (Midheaven).
