BIRTH CHART ANDRE RIEU
And Saturn for classical...
Tonight I saw a special about André Rieu, a world famous Dutch violin player, who plays popular classical music for the masses with complete orchestras and beautiful stages (with castels, flying divas and golden carriages). His son and wife take care of the show and decoration. Rieu is a million seller (25 million albums a year world wide from Japan to Canada and Australis.
Rieu (born 1st October 1949 in Maastricht, The Netherlands, unknown time) has a managing Saturn oriental (rising before the Sun). Mars is sesquisquare Zero Aries and makes a narrow sextile with Neptune. Could I read that as: musical (Neptune) instrument (Mars), please:)?
Saturn is calling and oriental, so most prominent in his chart. Where in his life do we see Saturn (symbol of management, the elderly, parents and parenthood, conservative and classical)? Of course in his music, first. He used to play in homes for the elderly first! His father conducted joyfull concerts for carnaval!
And where is the music? In the combination of the rulers of Sun Libra and Moon Aquarius (Venus and Uranus), making a sesqui square. I find the connection between Venus and Uranus in almost all of the charts of popular artists/singers/musicians.
No HOB and of course not everybody born that day ends up living in a sort of a castle! But there are indications in the midpointcombinations. One of them I mention here: the midpoint youd of Mercury with Jupiter and Uranus, telling us that he is inventive. And like in every chart, let us take into account that he descends from musical parents and so does his wife. Genes, circumstances and talent...
