Natal chart and talent of Louis Vuitton

There is a pattern in the charts of professionals with an artistic profession. That pattern consists of aspects between Moon, Venus, Neptune with MC, often with one or more of the related signs Taurus, Libra, Cancer or Pisces involved. Design requires a visionary eye for fashion and style. Designers also have the astrological pattern of artistic talent in their charts. Here is some Vuitton design:

Look at the chart of Louis Vuitton, the man who started the expensive bag brand. With Pluto (price!), ruler 5 (creation) on the MC in Pisces and  Neptune, square Midheaven, quintile Moon in Libra and trine Venus in the sign of details and practical use (Virgo), his chart has all that it takes to become a person who makes handy, fashionable and arty stuff. 

Louis Vuitton was a Leo. Leo's don't intend to make cheap things, do they? His chart has Venus in aspect with Jupiter and Pluto (a sign of success, earning a lot of money).

Natal chart of Louis de Funès

Fun: that is part of the name of Louis de Funès, an actor who gave me a lot of pleasure when I was young, especially when he acted as a hot tempered police inspector. Here is his chart:
The Moon has a key role in the pattern of artistic talent. The Moon is sextile Venus, square Midheaven and 112.5 degrees Neptune in Cancer (ruled by Moon and rising before the Sun). An aspect of 112.5 degree is a square + half semi square.

The talent in the chart of Gabriel Fauré

Gabriel Fauré's chart has the astrologicial pattern of talent:

Moon in Cancer
Venus in Taurus
Moon sextile Venus
Moon inconjunct Neptune
Venus trine Midheaven

He was 72 when he was honored with an homage:

Here is his picture.
It seems that he was extremely attractive for the ladies of his days. He was married and had a mistress.

He has a Taurus Ascendant and Venus is square Saturn. For some reason, attractive males have a cool side (Capricorn, Saturn) and Taurus is often involved. See this:
Moon inconjunct Neptune and Mars sextile Uranus and the wider square Venus-Neptune are 3 of the 4 aspect combinations that make it hard to be true and stick to one partner. Moon-Neptune and Venus-Neptune also happen to be aspect combinations of artistic talent. Artistic talent and romantic affairs seem to have to belong together:)!

Astropost: Chart of the exceptional Bette Davis

Unlike other artists' chart hers has no mixture of aspects between Moon, Venus, Neptune and MC, with placements in the signs Cancer, Taurus, Libra and/or Pisces. She made her way to stage by hard work, discipline and strong character.  Here is her chart (with the transits for the day that her - later disinherited - daughter was born).

Lady Gaga's chart?

Lady Gaga is no ordinary person. Maybe that is why her chart doesn't follow the 'ordinary' path and pattern to show artistic talent? Here is the chart, found on with no mention of source for the very specific time of birth. Is it perhaps a guess chart?

The important angular Mars at the Descendant is 'calling' shows how driven and active she is. She is the typical 'workaholic'. Scorpio Moon mirrors a strong personality. The Sun is 105 d Uranus. Her Venus is trine Uranus. There is a wide square between her Sun and Mars! at Descendant. She is rather independent and loves surprises and falling in love (Venus-Uranus). Venus-Uranus also gives her artistic aspirations and sense of rhythm. Many pop singers have a Venus-Uranus aspect.

The usual pattern of aspects of Moon, Venus and Neptune, related to Midheaven, is missing. This chart has Sun/Moon square Venus and that means that art, entertainment, fun and love motivate her. Instead of the missing pattern, she has Moon/Neptune sesquisquare Venus and Sun/Moon. Pisces Midheaven is sextile Neptune.

How to relate her success to her natal chart? There is:
- Jupiter rising before the Sun for the positive and self assured international
- Vesta conjunct Midheaven helps her to focus on her career (just like Mars!)
- Moon trine Jupiter is a rather fortunate aspect. This Moon is also conjunct Pluto. The combination of Moon, Jupiter and Pluto increases popularity. Jupiter-Pluto aspect and midpoint combination help you to earn money and be 'valued'. See: 

As soon as there is an AA rated chart of Lady Gaga, I'll be back on the subject.

Check what it means when your Sun/Moon or Ascendant/Midheaven midpoint is in hard aspect with one of the planets or Pholus or ...

Chart and talent of Harisson Ford

Harrison Ford is the actor who impersonates Indiana Jones, the adventurer. Harrison Ford was born July 13, 1942, 11h41 a.m. CWT in Chicago Heights with this chart:


  • Mercury (using the voice: speaking,writing) is calling! (no major aspects in 5d orb or sign) and that means that he communicates at any possible level (and sometimes not at all:) and 
  • Mercury square Zero Aries (for being known) AND 
  • Mercury conjunct MC (for professional communications)
  • the Moon (keeping the memories alive or ... imitation, reflection) is ruler of the Cancer MC (history, pretending, feeding, educating) and 
  • Moon strong in Cancer (good for actors). 
Venus sextile Mars is the tightest aspect (it means: a passion or a passionate person).
Mercury is very prominent , so that he could not miss the theme of the 'messenger' or 'interpreter'.

Is there an astrological pattern for artistic talent here? Yes, but not the usual one. We see:

The Moon strong in Cancer and ruling Midheaven
Neptune angular
Moon wide sextile Neptune

Now it seems that Venus is not related to Moon or Neptune or MC. But there is a quindecile (=strong focus) of Venus with IC and Midheaven is in hard aspect with Moon/Venus. It is the professional axis (IC-MC) that unites Moon, Venus and Neptune like this:

MC in Cancer sextile Neptune = Moon/Venus 

And why movies? Neptune in angular placement close to the Ascendant is an important indication. It means impersonating or disguise or... arts and movies (the world of fantasies) is important.

Notice that Mars is conjunct the midpoint Ascendant/MC and Jupiter/Neptune (semi square MC). Jupiter/Neptune, again, is pointing at fans and followers, succesful 'fake' or 'make belief' etc. and very fortunate for an actor. I think that Jupiter/Neptune is the combination of the believing audience. This combination pops up in the charts of those who are on stage, before a public that 'believes' in them. See my site Astromarkt:

Susanne Pleshette's chart

In 2008 I wrote about Susanne Pleshette on and I like to transfer this post to here now, with a chart drawing included.

Suzanne Pleshette died, age 70, early in the evening of the 19th of January of 2008, two weeks before her 71st birthday.

 She was born 31st January 1937 at 22h24 ( Since August 2006 it was known that she was being treated for lung cancer (that was with P Moon square Pluto, just before the progressed New Moon and a few months after Sun semi sextile Saturn). 18 Months earlier the progressed Sun inconjunct Neptune announced a vulnerable health. Transit Pluto squared the Progressed MC last year. Progressed Mars inconjunct Uranus and transit Chiron trine Ascendant accompanied her final days. In the progressed chart Saturn is less than 1 degree from her IC. There will probably even more to discover but let's talk about her life and achievements.

She was a beautiful actrice. There were a number of indications for that:

  • Notice the MC in Cancer ruled by Moon in Libra
  • Moon in Libra on the Ascendant (attraction)
  • Ascendant ruled by Venus in Pisces
  • Venus in 6 conjunct Aries Point (known for beauty)
  • Neptune is final dispositor of the MC (arts)
  • Moon is square the MC (memorizing, actor)
  • Mercury crucial on the IC for the use of communication methods
Artistic or idealistic keeper of memories with on orientation on communications, that is what could be read in this chart of Susanne Pleshette. How about the astrological pattern for artists (Moon, Venus, Neptune and MC related and some placements in their signs)? We see:

the Moon in Libra, ruled by Venus and square MC
Venus in Pisces, ruled by Neptune
Neptune sextile MC

George W. Bush, the painter

The Huffington Post has a few messages about George W. Bush painting and now that I know about this, I want to know: does he have the same pattern of artistic talent as others on this blog have?
See the chart:
He has:

Moon in Libra
Moon wide sextile Venus
Venus semi square Neptune
Venus trine MC

So, the answer is: yes, he does. (Sorry, political enemies and critics!:)

He could have chosen for an artistic career when he was young. The 'calling' Saturn (no aspects, square Midheaven) points at the importance (to him) of ambition, the father and status, classical education stood in the way. I don't know if it is too lae (is it ever:) but Saturn also refers to old age, patience and time passing bye.

PS, a bit not on topic:
when he retired the progressed Midheaven inconjunct Pholus (link to my site Astromarkt) reflected a turning point in life with a loss involved. Pholus is in his 6th house of daily pattern. Maybe now he found a way to deal with that lost pattern.

Here is a blog with some of the pictures (brought into the world by a hacker) and comments about yes/no talent:

Chart of Charles Dickens, born 200 years ago

Charles Dickens was born 200 years ago this year. That is a good enough reason to celebrate with a post on Art&Astrology!:). I have written about Charles Dickens before, referring to his talent, his relationships with women and to the reason why we love his stories, even today, even if his pages don't fit in a tweet.

Here is something more about his chart on my sites:

1. We like the happy ends in the stories of Charles Dickens. The positive thinking of the author is reflected by Moon in Sagittarius (looking at the bright side of life) and the importance of the elevated Jupiter. Jupiter is the astrological symbol of being positive:

2. Charles Dickens had Moon and Neptune square Venus in Pisces and a Mars-Uranus affliction. That is enough for complicated relationships with the opposite sex…Read about Charles and the women in his life on Astropost: 

3. I mentioned him on Art&Astrology iin 2009:

Charles Dickens had Moon and Neptune square Venus in Pisces. All three had a prominent position on the angles. He had the complete pattern of professional artistic talent in his natal chart.

Astropost: Venus-Saturn and Stepford Wives

In Astropost: Venus-Saturn and Stepford Wives something about the book written by Ira Levin and the Venus-Saturn symbolism of the perfect woman.

Chart and talent of Placido Domingo

Placido Domingo is a Spanish tenor and director with a very typical voice. Performers in the arts need artistic talents just as the creators of art do. In this case, there is a different astrological pattern than usual. Usually Moon, Venus and Neptune are connected with Midheaven and each other, supported by the signs that they rule (Cancer, Libra, Taurus and Pisces). In the chart of Placido Domingo we see:

a. a prominent Neptune (Neptune is 'calling', no mayor aspect in orb 5 degrees or in sign; and square Sun/Moon. It means that he was motivated for the arts, very much, at any kind of level, somehow, anyhow)

b. the moon stands right in the middle of Venus and Neptune. In other words: Venus/Neptune is conjunct the Moon.

c. There are minor aspects between Moon and Venus and Neptune. They are connected by septiles (1/7th of the circle). Moon/Venus is in aspect with Ascendant and Midheaven.
The septile is considered to mirror the energy that inspires us and others.

His chart doesn't immediately show the singer, unless you use this:

Mercury (communications, voice and pen) ruler of the Midheaven is in the 5th house of plays, games and shows, exactly square ruler 5 (plays) = Saturn (business).

Then you see the business of singing for entertainment.

But what must I do with that Mars on the IC? It may be an AA rated chart but I wonder ... Well, the story of his HOB is on Astrodienst:,_Plácido
