“Don’t Dance for the Audience, Dance for Yourself” — Bob Fosse
“Don’t Dance for the Audience, Dance for Yourself ” Bob Fosse
Taking a deeper look into his chart, it’s clearly revealed dance was indeed the ticket to Fosse’s legacy. With the Sun in perfect sextile to Terpsichore (asteroid # 81) both in quincunx to Saturn-the infamous magical atrological pattern is revealed- ‘the Yod’, better known as the ‘Finger of God’. In Fosse’s Case, God’s finger points directly to hard work, professionalsim, achievement, and legacy- all infamous virtues of Saturn.
Saturn’s placement in Sagitarius in the ninth house (the Archer’s natural arena) emphasizes faith and spirituality – and is not easily expressed through the confines of Saturn’s critical gaze and high expectations. It’s likely that although Fosse was adulated by his colleagues and fans, he was never fully satisfied or deeply believed in himself-but he didn’t have to- thanks to the perfect sextile between the Sun and Terpsichore.
Known as the “opportunity aspect”, the sextile (60 degree angle) is akin to two planets shaking hands in strong agreement. In Fossey’s case, his Cancer Sun and Taurus Terpsichore signifies a beautiful parternship of soul with sensuality, topped off with a refined aesthetic- (due to Venus’s rulership of Taurus). Fosse intuitively knew how to make a dancer look great while also emitting irresistible visceral energy. Undoubetdly this was the gift of his Sun Terpsichore sextile- a planteary agreement that set off a divine spark and unleashed unstoppable positive momentum.
Some people are just born to be dancers; Bob Fosse was definately one of them.
