Girl, Put Your Records On

Heaven's Angels have competition. The singer is Corinne Bailey Rae. I can't stop listening to her album. Last year it was non-stop Lali Puna (a band, not a person). The year before that was Macy Gray. Now I guess, for the next 6 months at least its:

Corinne Bailey Rae
b. February 26, 1979 Leeds, West Yorkshire, England

Sun in Pisces, Moon either in Aquarius or Pisces. The noontime chart shows Pisces Moon conjunct Sun and Mars in Aquarius.

Neptune rules the arts; Venus rules the voice and singing; Mercury rules the talking voice; Saturn rules Rhythm. Ms. Rae has Sun in Pisces opposite Saturn. Her Venus is in Capricorn (Saturn's sign) sextiling Mercury in Pisces (Neptune's sign) on one side and Uranus on the other side in Scorpio. Mercury is trine Uranus. This gives her voice its sweetness but adds a sense of structure and intelligent design and surprise to her lyricism. She also has Neptune in Sagittarius squaring her natal Nodes, NN in Virgo. Pluto recently passed over Neptune which is great for realizing such an ethereal sound. In one of her songs she describes love as being like "little Volcanoes" which made me wonder if she has a Venus-Pluto in addition to the aspect to Uranus. Yay! Venus square Pluto. Little Volcanoes! That's it! (I have a Venus-Pluto conjunction)

Corinne Bailey Rae has been compared with Minnie Riperton (Nov.8, 1947 Chicago, IL) and Macy Gray (Sept.6, 1967 Canton, OH). After a quick check I noticed that they all share strong Venus-Jupiter aspects. Rae has the opposition and Riperton and Gray had/have the conjunction. That indicates an "expansive" quality to the voice in some way, happy, party singing which is popular with a huge audience and when combined with strong Saturn and Mars aspects in their charts give the discipline, energy, and ambition to follow a career in music. Jupiter, as co-ruler of traditional Pisces, also rules poetry and publishing, great for song-writing.

All three of the women have Sun in a wide orb, very wide for Macy Gray, with their South Nodes. Perhaps this is a signature for a performer; it certainly shows past lifetimes where they were perhaps in the spotlight. Bailey Rae and Macy Gray, no rhyming intended, both have squares of Neptune to their Nodes. Minnie Riperton had a conjunction of Mars-Pluto-Saturn to her Nodes. She developed Breast Cancer right around the time of her first Saturn Return and passed away at age 31.
