If ‘Rumours’ be believed, songstress Stevie Nicks turns 70 this month and still remains here, there and ‘everywhere’, from rocking Hyde Park to rocky horror in TV’s ‘American Horror Story’! This suiting her Gemini Sun, as active Air Signs ‘don’t stop thinking about tomorrow’!
Her dual Sign Sun allowing her to pursue both a successful solo career and retain Fleetwood Mac status, but also creating a real need to keep mind and body occupied, especially with inquisitive Mercury at home in Gemini and Uranus too, pushing boundaries, craving excitement and knowledge. However, without the right outlet this energy can set individuals on a downward spiral, drugs being Stevie’s catalyst.
Mercury Conjunct Uranus
Their use causing stints at Betty Ford’s, but also opening up a world of ‘dreams’ and creativity, as Stevie’s gifted Mercury united with its higher vibration, Uranus enable (Mercury conjunct Uranus) also making her quick-witted, quirky and quintessentially unique, as her inimitable, timeless, mystical style and stage presence demonstrates, she surely does go her ‘own way’!
However, she does draw from her beginning influences, supporting the likes of Hendrix and Joplin. Though, her mercurial nature means she knows how to continually change it up, keeping current, spurred on by her Natal Horoscopes’s angular Virgo Mars’ particular attention to details and lyrics. While, opposing Sagittarius Jupiter gives added kicks to Nicks, but also puts her outlandish practices at odds with her spiritual desire to escape everyday trappings.
Her contradictory character further emphasised by Cardinal Natal placements, like a compass pulling her in each direction. As her traditional Capricorn Moon wants prominence and security, but Cancer Venus the opposite, hence relationship/career conflicts arise. Though, this turmoil provides musical inspiration with Neptune in Libra, but also affects her well being. However, with Aries Ascendant, this ‘Bella Donna’ drives her success.
So as ‘7 wonders’ become 70, transits from Leo’s North Node to Natal Pluto/Saturn bring renewed hope and rebirth; Sagittarius’s Jupiter transit, possible health issues and Taurus Uranus to Natal North Node, freedom from restrictions, meaning ‘afters’ still follow for ‘Nicks’-rocker-glory’!
