George Balanchine, Founder of
New York City Ballet
Aquarius Sun, Pisces Moon, Cancer Ascendant
God creates, I do not create. I assemble and I steal everywhere to do it – from what I see, from what the dancers can do, from what others do. George Balanchine
It’s not surprising that Mr. Balanchine, the father of neo classical ballet, is an Aquarius. His imagination and vision were well ahead of his time. He had a talent for bringing out the individuality of his dancers and bringing them to the edge of their capability. Yet, he also cherished the oneness of his dancers, and took pride in his collective vision of perfection.
As the 11th sign of the zodiac Aquarius sees the big picture, and needs to make a special contribution to the future- whether this involves a community, social movement, or humanitarian cause, Aquarius is born with a mission. Mr. Balanchine’s devotion to his dancers, which eventually (with the assistance Lincoln Kirstein) became New York City Ballet, is now historical, yet still lives in the future as through his creation of the Balanchine technique.
Musicality was Mr. Balanchine’s greatest gift, as he had great respect for music in its own right. With the Moon in Pisces, the most musical sign of the zodiac, he had a natural sense of rhythm, and flow. A trained classical pianist, he likely could just as easily been a composer. With his rising sign in Cancer, the sign of family and nurturing, Mr. Balanchine was comfortable taking on a father role-feeling personally responsible for the welfare of his dancers, and taking care of them. He was known for his generosity and loyalty, for once a dancer was chosen to ride under his wing, the sky would emerge and reveal the brightest stars.

Moira Shearer is most famous for her starring role in the classic dance film, The Red Shoes, directed by Hollywood icon Michael Powell. Born on January 17, 1926, Ms. Shearer is a Capricorn. As the zodiac’s 10th sign, Capricorn is the zenith of the zodiac, and thrives on ambition. Saturn, the planet of realism, is Capricorn’s ruler. Thus, even though Capricorn has high hopes, she (or he) is not afraid to work hard-because it builds character, Capricorn’s most notable virtue.
With her moon in Pisces, the zodiac’s most imaginative sign, Ms. Shearer was also a dreamer who was known for her sensitivity. Her Leo ascendant made her a natural performer who adored the spotlight. The sign on the ascendant, (or rising sign), reflects ones public image, physical appearance, and demeanor. Her infamous red hair and dramatic eyes gave her a lioness quality that is quintessentially Leo.

The Sun is in Scorpio!
…and he that revealeth secrets maketh known to thee what shall come to pass… Daniel 2:29
Now that the Sun is in Scorpio, the zodiac’s most secretive sign, it will be a good time go within, and get in touch with your darker side. Once you’re able to get comfortable with the shadow of your personality, it will be easier to open up to those you trust. If you’re yearning for a psychological breakthrough, with courage and vulnerability, you’ll likely conquer an inner demon and rise like a phoenix.

GREAT AMERICAN SOLAR ECLIPSE OF 2017
Total Solar Eclipse in Leo
All conquests are born when we dare to begin. Anonymous
The total solar eclipse in 28 degrees of Leo will be exact on Monday, August 21, at 2: 30 p.m. EST. Positive new beginnings can be expected no matter what sign you are, but fire signs will benefit most, due the grand fire trine (a most auspicious alignment of 120 degrees) between the new moon in Leo (i.e. the eclipse), Saturn at 21 degrees Sagittarius, and Uranus at 28 degrees Aries (retrograde until January 3, 2018).
What makes this eclipse even more special is its tight proximity to Regulus, a spectacularly bright star in the heart of the Lion, for the constellation of Leo, at 29 degrees. This star is known to bring good fortune, and is prominent in the charts of many celebrated actors, politicians, as well as royalty, and well known historical figures.
One thing for sure is change is on its way! Ready or not! Saturn’s influence will likely add a sobering effect, as Saturn in the planet of stability and longevity. Sagittarian’s will likely feel this influence the most, since Saturn is now in their sign. But that won’t be the whole picture- as Uranus known for bringing the unexpected and shaking things up. Get ready to venture in new territory that feels a little rocky- after a month or so, you’ll likely gain foresight and balance to help you ground yourself as you master your footing.
Meanwhile, why not set the tone from the very beginning and create your own dance?! Terpsichore is in Sagittarius, the sign of adventure and travel- so wherever you are, show your moves!
If you’re in Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, or the Carolinas, you’ll likely have a spectacular view!!
