Kate Bush – astrological birth chart

KateBushThe wonderful Kate Bush returns to the stage tonight for her first live shows since 1979. Although the time of birth is unknown, the astrology horoscope for her date of birth (30th July 1958) reveals some suitably powerful features.

Kate is a Leo Sun, a Fire sign. Leos burn brightly as they take centre stage to radiate inspiring warmth and good humour to everyone around them. Creativity and individual self-expression are key themes and Leos need to be loved and appreciated more than most. The planet Uranus is also in Leo and close to the Sun in Kate’s chart, an indication of a potentially unique and multi-talented superstar. The Moon in Aquarius (Kate would have the Moon in Capricorn if born in the early hours but given her personality this seems unlikely) is a further sign of an original and even eccentric character. The egoless humanitarian instincts of an Aquarian Moon are a good antidote to the Leo ego!

The Sun, Uranus and the Moon combine with sensual Mars in Taurus and Neptune in Scorpio to form a Grand Cross in Fixed signs, although the position and strength of the Moon in this is unknown due to the lack of birth time. Used constructively (not an easy task), a Grand Cross is a major force to be reckoned with! The close square between Sun and Mars needs an outlet for its fiery energy and a Mars-Neptune aspect is very common in the charts of musicians, artists, sportsmen and other charismatic individuals who are capable of transcending everyday life through “magical talents”.

Kate’s mental intensity and darker side is shown by a Virgo Mercury-Pluto conjunction. Mercury delves deep here, analyzing and investigating taboo subjects with sharp intelligence. Kate’s sometimes disturbing and penetrating insights into life and human nature can be found in much of her work, particularly on The Dreaming. The search for deeper meaning and the need for disciplined wide-ranging philosophical exploration correspond to her Saturn in Sagittarius.

Venus in Cancer indicates a romantic, feminine nature which affects both her artistic self-expression and relationships in general. Emotional security is important for Venus in Cancer and the long-term support of Kate’s family (Cancer) has been essential to her success. She cares – relationships and partnerships have also been helped by Jupiter in Libra (conjunct her spiritually significant North Node) bringing charm, grace and beauty.

KateBushPicAlthough an accurate time and place of birth is required for a full look at anyone’s current astrological trends, it is interesting to see that Kate has chosen to make her live comeback as positive Jupiter moves through Leo and across her Sun-Uranus conjunction. No doubt the “Before The Dawn” London gigs will be a further triumph in her extraordinary career.

    Great to read astro analysis of the hugely talented avant garde unique K.B. Tnx Tim

    A pleasure. Too bad no-one seems to know the birth time – perhaps it’s another KB well-kept secret. My first thought was Libra or Scorpio (which would partly explain her need for privacy) rising which would put her Sun and Uranus around the Midheaven and 10th house. Astrologer Marjorie Orr has suggested Leo rising with the Sun-Uranus conjunction in 12th house (possible indication of reclusive tendencies, also her universal appeal), putting Mars in Taurus up near the Midheaven.

  3. Just discovered KB birth date. I was born two days after KB with Sun, Uranus conjunct ascendant in the 12th – I’ve yet to find my universal appeal lol
    If Scorpio was the ascendant, 1 degree, Neptune would be near the ascendant in the 1st house creating that mystical and sexual combination.

    I think Cancer rising she has that Moon round pale face, This would mean Venus conjunct Asc. Gemini ruled 12th house, she learned to play music w/ siblings.
    Pluto conjunct Mercury 3H in Virgo prolific writer
    Neptune in Scorpio 5H tying into her fixed grand cross

    Looking at this again, first time in ages. If Kate was born before 4.53am she would have Moon in Capricorn, after that Moon in Aquarius. I’m still inclined to agree with most astrologers that Moon in Aquarius is more likely but it could also be argued that a Capricorn Moon would work with Kate having famously been in control of all aspects of her career. Jupiter is closely conjunct the North Node in Kate’s chart – a classic indicator of karmic good luck. Quite important that one. In the excellent biography “Under The Ivy”, interesting to read that KB had her birth chart interpreted by music producer Tony Visconti (famous for his work with David Bowie) in the early eighties.

    It’s now June 2022 and thanks to American TV show Stranger Things, “Running Up That Hill (Deal With God)” is high in charts all over the world 🌎 Today she is number one in the UK charts for the first time since Wuthering Heights in 1978 – fantastic!

    One obvious transit co-inciding with her extraordinary current rise is a Saturn trine (easy lessons and good karma) to her Jupiter-North Node conjunction (expansive and fortunate soul purpose) in Libra (harmony, balance, relationships, art). Also a Jupiter trine to her Leo Sun this week, again a typically lucky period.

    Both these transits are around for some time and have a final pass in early 2023, it could well be an extended period of world domination for KB. I certainly hope so!
