Leo singer/songwriter Kate Bush Astrology Natal Chart Reading via Her Music

Blog Link here: http://theastrofiend.blogspot.com/2020/08/leo-singersongwriter-kate-bush.html

I first heard of Kate Bush a couple years ago when reading an astrology blog post by Oxford Astrologer (comparing her with Madonna). I thought she was interesting but didnít investigate her further. Then a year ago after watching a random ass YouTube documentary on her, I downloaded Running Up That Hill. This was during I think Virgo season. I barely listened to it.

Back in this past Cancer season (last month) during the time of Capricorn Nayla Riveraís then disappearance & later accidental drowning death (R.I.P) mixed with the anti-police brutality protests, and me personal emotions, the heaviness of Cancer season was effecting me. I was very sad and for some strange reason after listening to Super Cancerian Mazzy Starís Fade into you, I decided to listen to Kate Bush repeatedly. I downloaded Wuthering Heights, Breathing, and Womenís Work pretty much listening to it on repeat all night. It was so comforting, cheered me up and I later marveled about how relevant her music is now. I knew I wanted to do an astrology blog post on Kate Bushís music/astrology since Cancer season. Now in her season, I am doing it.

First a look at her Astrology

Sun conjunct Uranus both in Leo (in the 9th House) opposite Moon in Aquarius (in the 3rd House)

Mercury conjunct Pluto in Virgo (in the 10th House) trine Mars in Taurus (in the 6th House)

Venus in Cancer (in the 8th House) in a wide trine with Neptune in Scorpio (in the 12th House)

Jupiter conjunct North Node (retrograde) both in Libra (in the 12th House) trine Chiron retrograde in Aquarius (in the 3rd House)

Uranus in Leo (in the 9th House) opposite Saturn retrograde in Sagittarius (in the 2nd House)

Ascendant in Scorpio

SONG: Wuthering Heights

RELEASE DATE: AQUARIUS SEASON JANUARY 20TH 1978 but originally written during Pisces Season on March 5th 1977

BACKGROUND: "Wuthering Heights" is Kate Bushís debut song released in January 20th 1978

Bush wrote the song aged 18, within a few hours late at night on Pisces Season 5 March 1977.[3] She was inspired after seeing the 1967 BBC adaptation of the 1847 novel Wuthering Heights. She then read the book, and also discovered that she shared her birthday with author Emily BrontŽ.

"Wuthering Heights" is sung from the perspective of the Wuthering Heights character Catherine Earnshaw, pleading at Heathcliff's window to be allowed in. It quotes Catherine's dialogue, including the chorus lyric "Let me in! I'm so cold!" and "bad dreams in the night". Cathy is in fact a ghost, which the listener may only realise upon reading the novel. Critic Simon Reynolds described it as "Gothic romance distilled into four-and-a-half minutes of gaseous rhapsody https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wuthering_Heights_(song)

ASTROLOGY THEMES & LYRICS:

Kate has Sun conjunct Uranus both in Leo (in the 9th House) opposite Moon in Aquarius (in the 3rd House)

This was Kate Bush's debut song. She was only 18. I would like to imagine she was the 1970sí/ 1980sí British Lorde, Billie Eilish, or Taylor Swift being propelled to fame at a young age writing her own songs. The song is dramatic, theatrical, intensely creative, and sung from the perspective of a fictional Gothic romance novel character (thatís is also a ghost). If this isnít Kate flexing her Uranian genius with her Moon in Aquarius (in the 3rd House) and intense theatrical Sun conjunct Uranus both in Leo (in the 9th House). Itís interesting that Kate sings so personally about a fictional character that is a ghost. Itís like her ego (Sun), mixed (Uranus) itself into her detached/3rd person moon in Aquarius to tell the story/perspective of a ghost.

LYRICS

Out on the wiley, windy moors

We'd roll and fall in green

You had a temper like my jealousy

Too hot, too greedy

How could you leave me

When I needed to possess you?

I hated you, I loved you, too

Bad dreams in the night

They told me I was going to lose the fight

Leave behind my wuthering, wuthering

Wuthering Heights

Heathcliff, it's me, I'm Cathy

I've come home, I'm so cold

Let me in through your window

Cathy wants attention and to be let into the house of a lover. So extra and dramatic. So Leo, So Aquarius, so Uranian. The water bearing moon in Aquarius acting as a conduit for emotions and understanding, while Uranus being the vehicle for her ego to be expressed in surprising mix of heart (Sun in Leo) and detachment (moon in Aquarius).

Mind you she also wrote this in Pisces season while watching a movie adaptation (Neptunian element) of a work by author (Leo Emily Bronte) that shared Kateís birthday, debuting in Aquarius season (her moonís season). This was divine intervention, destiny and faith making this song happen.

-----------------------------------------

SONG: Running Up That Hill

RELEASE DATE: LEO SEASON AUGUST 5TH 1985

BACKGROUND: "Running Up That Hill" was the first single by the English singer-songwriter Kate Bush from her 1985 album Hounds of Love, released in the United Kingdom August 5th 1985. Bush herself has said,

I was trying to say that, really, a man and a woman can't understand each other because we are a man and a woman. And if we could actually swap each other's roles, if we could actually be in each other's place for a while, I think we'd both be very surprised! [Laughs] And I think it would lead to a greater understanding. And really the only way I could think it could be done was either... you know, I thought a deal with the devil, you know. And I thought, 'well, no, why not a deal with God!' You know, because in a way it's so much more powerful the whole idea of asking God to make a deal with you. You see, for me it is still called "Deal With God", that was its title. But we were told that if we kept this title that it would not be played in any of the religious countries, Italy wouldn't play it, France wouldn't play it, and Australia wouldn't play it! Ireland wouldn't play it, and that generally we might get it blacked purely because it had God in the title.[4]

ASTROLOGY THEMES & LYRICS:

Moon in Aquarius in the 3rd House (gender fluidity).

Since last US elections (2016) identity politics have come into the collective consciousness conversation. Race, Sexuality, Gender equality, and Gender identity. Aquarius is the water bearer and itís seen as an asexual, gender neutral/ gender fluid androgynous sign.

LYRICS:

Let's exchange the experience, oh

And if I only could

I'd make a deal with God

And I'd get him to swap our places

I'd be running up that road

Be running up that hill

With no problems

Kate Bush is bringing forth her Moon in Aquarius in the 3rd House energy. She wants to switch places with a man (very gender fluid). For him to know her pain and experiences (emotions, Moon in Aquarius). Sheís feeling her pain, intellectualizing it and detaching it her pain into a creative form. It seems Kateís artistry comes from her needing to detach from her emotions and play it out in the character/world building in her lyrics/song/performance. I think she often writes and performs as different characters, not to escape but as a way to cope and fully be in herself (without being full of herself). Sun/moon opposition at work in Leo. Random but I have a Leo/Aquarius opposition and I somewhat get that.

--------------------------------------------

SONG: This Womenís Work (motherhood, life/birth, regrets, fear, death, etc.)

RELEASE DATE: SCORPIO SEASON NOVEMBER 20TH 1989

BACKGROUND: I originally heard it the 2001 cover from American Gemini R & B Singer Maxwell (who also has an Aquarius moon like Kate). It took me many years to know it was a cover. The song was originally intended for the soundtrack for a John Hughes 1988 movie Sheís Having A Baby. "This Woman's Work" was released on 20 November 1989. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/This_Woman%27s_Work

ASTROLOGY THEMES & LYRICS: Kate has Venus in Cancer (in the 8th House) in a wide trine with Neptune in Scorpio (in the 12th House)

Lyrics

Pray God you can cope

I stand outside this woman's work

This woman's world

Ooh, it's hard on the man

Now his part is over

Now starts the craft of the father

I know you've got a little life in you yet

I know you've got a lot of strength left

I know you've got a little life in you yet

I know you've got a lot of strength left

I should be crying, but I just can't let it show

I should be hoping, but I can't stop thinking

Of all the things I should've said

That I never said

All the things we should've done

Though we never did

All the things I should've given

But I didn't

Oh, darling, make it go

Make it go away

People have compared sexual orgasm as a little DEATH. While I heard before that pregnancy/labor is the closest a women will be to death. RAW SEX + MAN + WOMAN = PREGNANCY. Being that this was for a movie about a babyís health potentially being in jeopardy, and that it was released during Scorpio season itís also fits in with Kateís astrology. Kate has Venus in Cancer (in the 8th House) in a wide trine with Neptune in Scorpio (in the 12th House). This shows Kateís Venus (beauty, pleasure, relationships) in motherly (Cancer) in the 8th House (death, power, sex, transformation, inheritances) was widely trining Neptune in Scorpio in the 12th House (boundaries, sex, illusions, delusions/disillusions). It makes sense that Kate will write about the nuance sea emotions of motherhood/becoming a mother, the fear, uncertainty, powerlessness/vulnerability of an expecting father, transformations/change that could either result in death and life in the most Plutonian way.

I read an article a few ago that between the connection that sex literally has with death and the article suggests that reproducing earlier in life can speed up death (and vice versa). Itís quite a contradiction. The article is Encyclopedia of Death and Dying: Sex and Death, Connection of by MICHAEL C. KEARL if youíre interested.

Anyways Kateís song is about the uncertainties of life, the regrets, the pain, the hopefulness in the introduction of a delicate new life that is growing inside. A life that is threatened, a life that could be wiped away before it had a chance of being born/birth. This is very Plutonian in a beautiful transformative way. Something that Kate with Venus in Cancer in the 8th House trine Neptune in Scorpio in the 12th house can produce. Using the illusions/comfort of art/music and breaking down of boundaries between life/death (Neptune in Scorpio in the 12th house) to talk/heal the emotional/physical upheavals and transformation of relationships into the new motherhood/parenthood/child roles (Venus in Cancer in the 8th House.)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SONG: Breathing

RELEASE DATE: ARIES SEASON: APRIL 14TH 1980

BACKGROUND: The perspective of an unborn baby in some sort of nuclear war/fall out situation. "Breathing" single released on April 14th 1980 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Breathing_(Kate_Bush_song)

ASTROLOGY THEMES & LYRICS: Mercury conjunct Pluto in Virgo (in the 10th House) trine Mars in Taurus (in the 6th House)

This also a very forward song written by Kate. Especially now in the Lalarona pandemic in which this virus is literally causing people to struggle to breathe. The original meaning was Kate singing a story of the perspective of an unborn baby in the womb, wanting to survive after some sort of nuclear fall-out situation or the effects of smoking nicotine while pregnant. Depends on which source. I think Kate is talking about nuclear war. Kate sings about the literal process of breathing of inhaling /exhaling).

LYRICS:

Outside

Gets inside

Through her skin

I've been out before

But this time it's much safer in

Last night in the sky

Such a bright light

My radar send me danger

But my instincts tell me to keep

Breathing

(Out, in, out, in, out, in)

Breathing

Breathing my mother in

Breathing my beloved in

Breathing

Breathing her nicotine

Breathing

Breathing the fall-out in

Out in, out in, out in, out in

We've lost our chance

We're the first and the last, ooh

After the blast

Chips of plutonium

Are twinkling in every lung

This was released during Aries season which is amazing because Aries is about being, I Am, existence, and violence/war. This song can be applied to the original intention which was one of nuclear war/annihilation). This was literally written during the time of the Cold War and the Soviet Union (SSR) was still a thing. The threat of annihilation was (and still is) definitely a concern of anxiety.

Even now with the Lalarona pandemic and the effects of climate change/ global warming. Even the healing/ techniques of coping with anxiety by simply breathing in and out.

To get into Kateís astrology with this.

Kate has Mercury conjunct Pluto in Virgo (in the 10th House) trine Mars in Taurus (in the 6th House).

This has a very powerful message. Itís social, political, personal/health wise which is very indicative of Mercury (words) conjunct Pluto (power, death) in Virgo (sign of health, work, and habits/rules over the 6th house). This is all in the 10th House so itís about Kate using her words to bring awareness and heal (Pluto/Virgo).

Especially with Kateís earthy Taurus in Mars singing and waling intensely (literally Taurus rules the throat) and again Kate is describing the process/action (Mars) of breathing of exhalation and inhalation (Taurus/throat and Mercury/lungs). In the ******* 6th house (of health).

Protect the unborn baby, protect yourself, protect the Earth, stay alive, and please keep breathing.

I suggest watching the music videos of these songs too, to see Kate Bush being the Leo Sun conjunct Uranus opposite Moon in Aquarius, Venus in Cancer, Mars in Taurus performative, extra, sensual, zany out of this world energy she has.

Sorry for being the party pooper, but I think Kate's work deserves way deeper :s

First, I have to assume you're working with a rectified ToB as I don't think her actual ToB is known, it would be nice of you to briefly explain why the rectification has been validated by you, why you chose to go with it, how you think it makes sense... reading this that way has confused me so much, it's disturbing to read "facts" when you've never heard of an actual ToB for an artist you have listened to your entire life.

Then, your experience of her music is awfully shallow and green for an attempt at analysing her lyrics, or should I say her hits' lyrics and blending it with astrology the way you did. Her hits are less than tip of the iceberg for the themes you've picked...
Sorry for being an arsehole, I'll own to it on this one, but you are touching a one of a kind artist's work, you can't go about it so superficially and end up not looking foolish. Not to mention your analysis is very biased, you don't respect the basic rule of literary analysis to always extract from the source itself, you inject way too much subjectivity that you present as interpretation when it's actually not valid as such. You reduce poetry to literality to fit a narrative, this is not literary analysis, it's reviewing posing as analysis through the support of potentially equally biased astrology. This is Kate Bush damn it, authentic is the only way to go here.

Wuthering Heights is not merely a gothic novel, you may accept it has elements from the genre but its core is Romantic (literary current romantic, not Julia Roberts smiling at a box of chocolate romantic), the moors, raw emotions... typical challenge of the Victorian Era by means of emotions. Also, it's a classic of English literature, so people in the 70's would know that Cathy is a ghost at that point in the novel, and would know the scene because most would have had to study it, or view one of the adaptations for class and trust me that scene hits, it's not gothic, it's pure gore lol Even if not, it is global, general culture, just like people know Romeo and Juliet are teen lovers from rival families who both die without having read it or seen a film.

Kate Bush never was some Taylor Swift or Billie Eilish pop star, she's a full artist, a trained dancer and mover as well as an extraordinary vocalist and lyricist, Madonna owes her the headset mic lol Her work ethics and commitment by the time she wrote her first album displayed maturity no signed artist her age could have these days. As much as she had success and was famous, she was never product adjacent like those good-but-very vanilla acts you've mentioned. The bulk of her work is some years long creative fever that upset so much of what you seem to take for granted reading her, it almost entirely falls flat.

You've admitted it, you're not very familiar with her work and if you venture into analysing it the least you could do, and should do as it is Kate Bush we're talking about, not Kim K, is to really take the time to delve into it, get information on the actual context in which her music appeared, understand her influences and experimentations... it's far from being just social topics and musical references, there's almost as much time needed to study Kate Bush and come up with something decent to say about her music than there is about astrology lol
Some bodies of work you can't fiddle about. You wouldn't gloss over Shakespeare that way, don't do it to Kate.

You could rewrite your piece as some introductory tease for young people who have never heard of her and like astrology, then it would be a great fit.

Again, sorry for being such an arsehole, nothing personal, I will shut up next time instead of speaking my unpleasant mind.

Have a lovely day
