And so yesterday would have been Prince's birthday. A fellow Gemini!An artist I was mad about from my early 20's. I was lucky enough to have seen him play in Pairc ui Chaoimhin Cork in July 1990 - an iconic concert.
I was back in Ireland unexpectedly in May of this year for several visits, and goodness me, The Boss had arranged to play Croker on my birthday! How kind of him!
Between Bowie and Prince both dying the same year, within months of each other, and Bruce Springsteen playing his first return concert in Dublin in many years, there has been an incredible overload of emotion within me around my musical idols these last few months. Bruce Springsteen has Gemini rising! Yeah! Sound man! Same as me!
Bruce Springsteen also however has a strong stellium of planets (four in total) in Libra in the firth house, which rules beauty, truth, justice and harmony, and also our value system and our sense of finances. He also has his Sun in Libra in his fourth. So he got to shine in the USA well before shining worldside....I remember his first ever concert in Ireland....Slane Castle 1985 - almost 100,000 people - rock n roll Ireland had never seen anything like it. He also has a Grand Trine in Fire between his Black Moon (in Aries in the 11th house) Mars (in Leo in the 3rd house) and Chiron (in Sagittarius in the 6th house)
- now THAT sure explains his phenomenal energy....the guy is 66 and he STILL rocks the house down for over three hours non stop.
So on Sunday 29th May 2016, I rocked my socks off for three hours. I was sick, utterly exhausted from far too much travelling between Dublin and West Cork and Cavan, but I got myself there......yes the sound was shite, yes I was miles away from the stage, but when Bonostrolled onstage to duet "Because the night belongs to Lovers" with Bruce, I officially went to rock n roll heaven that night....five minutes of my two greatest musical idols onstage together....I may never see that again.
And now back in Lucca, as usual it takes days to settle back in. I am now working full time as an astrologer and am seeing more and more clients face to face. It serves my energy better. I will be in Florence for three days this weekend, so ring me on (+39) 346 279 45048 to book a reading or PM me on Facebook. Session details are on mywebsite.
I also caught up with Trudy Simmons from Sydney in the l'Anfiteatro in Lucca last week, and we spend some time chatting about the reality of being a "travelling entrepreneur"..have a look at this fun video folks!
Till next time - happy Sun conjunct Venus!
I'm busy working on my blog posts. Watch this space!
