Virgo Goddess Beyonce is ruling the world, and the airwaves, these days. From the Presidential Inauguration, the Superbowl, her new HBO documentary “Beyonce: Life Is But a Dream”, to numerous magazine covers (including VOGUE March 2013), and her upcoming world tour, this is truly Beyonce’s moment at the apex.
Which is not very surprising when considering that Jupiter, the planet of good luck and abundance, is crossing through Gemini until June 2013, and it is a lucky career moment for all Virgos. With Jupiter in Virgo’s career house- bigger is better and more is more, so all Virgos should take advantage of the ample work opportunities lining up for them right now. (In June, Jupiter slides into Cancer which will bless Libra with these career benefits- so Libras take note, you have something to look forward to!)
In her many interviews Beyonce has been highlighting Virgos’ notorious perfectionism and attention to detail: “I watch my performances, and I wish I could just enjoy them, but I see the light that was late. I see, ‘Oh God, that hair did not work.’ Or ‘I should never do that again.’ I try to perfect myself. I want to grow, and I’m always eager for new information.” Virgos are meticulous information gatherers and craftsmen, but are not necessarily comfortable in the spotlight.
In astrology, however, our rising sign influences our outer personality and presentation and Beyonce has the sign of the dramatic showman, Leo, on her ascendant. In her early career, Beyonce divorced herself from her flashy outer persona (“Sasha Fierce”), but as an adult has assimilated her Leo and Virgo qualities. Scorpio, the sign of determination, sexuality and transformation is her moon sign- giving her tremendous emotional depth and insight, which is the bread and butter of her song writing and creative talent.
In addition to her Virgo/Scorpio/Leo astrological signature, a wealth of Pisces themes, Virgo’s opposite sign, emerge as well. As I often discuss in my pieces, opposite signs are really a pair- like two sides of the same coin. And successful people often personify their opposite sign as much as their sun sign. Beyonce epitomizes the Virgo/Pisces polarity with both her dedication and professionalism (Virgo), and also her deep spiritual underpinnings (Pisces).
In her documentary, with the very Pisces subtitle “Life Is But a Dream”, she credits the prayers of her mother and Grandmother with her success, and repeatedly affirms her faith in God for steering her path and her choices. In an especially beautiful scene, filmed by her Sagittarius husband Jay Z, she sits on a boat with light illuminating her perfectly, waxing about the beauty of life and simplicity of love and joy in the moment- before jumping overboard declaring “Life is but a dream”. She also discusses how her biggest transformation (Scorpio) has been embracing her identity as an artist (Pisces) which has made her feel more comfortable insisting on her vision and not worrying that people would think she is “too picky” (Virgo).
The artistic and soulful inspiration of Pisces must be channeled through the detailed hard work of Virgo, while Virgos meticulous craftsmanship must be enlivened and inspired by creative Pisces, and with Beyonce we see the perfect exemplification of this polarity.
