Britney Jean Spears was born on 2nd December 1981 in Mississippi, and was raised in Kentwood, Louisiana. Britney has come to prominence as an actress and singer. At age eight, Spears and her mother Lynne travelled to Atlanta, Georgia to audition for the 1990s revival of The Mickey Mouse Club. In December 1992, she was cast in this alongside Christina Aguilera, Justin Timberlake, Ryan Gosling, and Keri Russell.
In June 1997, Spears was in talks with various record labels, and three of the labels rejected her, arguing that audiences wanted pop bands such as the Backstreet Boys and the Spice Girls, and stated “there wasn’t going to be another Madonna, another Debbie Gibson, or another Tiffany.” However, her debut studio album, Baby One More Time, was released on January 12, 1999. Worldwide, the album topped the charts in fifteen countries and sold over 10 million copies in a year. It also became the biggest selling album ever by a teenage artist.
Britney has two sons Sean and Jayden, born almost exactly one year apart with Sean’s Birthday on September 14th and Jayden on 12th September.
Sun in Sagittarius
Britney Spears has her Sun in Sagittarius. Sagittarius zodiac sign subjects can sometimes have blind faith in others, and their optimism can be infectious. There is also a sense of wanting to learn as much as possible. As a Fiery Archer the need for space or independence is generally strong, but this can sometimes come across to others’ as a lack in responsibility. With Britney, this was something that was talked about back in December 2002, when her relationship with Justin Timberlake broke down, as she was rumoured to have been unfaithful to him. However, even if this can sometimes be the case, Sagittarius folks are sometimes seen to be able to forgive. Why? Well, their often direct nature and honest approach to life can be admirable, and Britney has steadfast fans who have stuck with her through it all.
Moon in Aquarius
Britney Spears has her Moon in Aquarius, and people with this placement can be very observant, can be lifetime learners and study human behaviour carefully. This can sometimes come across as having a detached or even shy personality, especially in youth. Whether due to character or conditioning, Moon in Aquarius people often grow up feeling different. “From an early age I always felt that everyone was testing me” Britney was quoted as saying. Lunar Aquarians can be very wilful, especially in childhood. With age, these natives generally learn to handle their strong needs. Their desire for independence or to shock even, is powerful indeed, no matter what their age. Britney Spears, has been known as an entertainer who likes to shock, and this was shown in her 2003 VMA’S awards performance where she shared an unscripted on-stage kiss with Madonna.
Ascendant in Libra
Our Ascendant is the way in which others’ perceive us, for those born with a Libra Ascendant life can be experienced as a constant series of choices. Libra is an air sign, concerned with fairness, equality and right human relationships. Because of this, there is an innate objective way of thinking in order to see this fairness through. However, people with this placement can sometimes have a deep need to feel liked, and this can lead to people pleasing. This can be avoided though, if a true system of values is established.
A tendency to changes mind is sometimes prevalent, and this can lead to indecisiveness and a tendency to fence-sit if the appropriate mode of action cannot be chosen. Britney Spears has spoken out recently about her public breakdown of 2007. She said; “I think I had needed to give myself more breaks through my career and take responsibility for my mental health. There were many decisions that were made for me and that I didn’t make myself.” It was her form on people pleasing that lead to her anxiety overwhelming and hospitalising the singer. However, after seeking support Britney goes from strength to strength and we wish her all this best for her birthday!
