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.

PRINCE LYRICS – Free
Gemini Sun, Scorpio Ascendant
A brilliant musician and performer, Prince will be greatly missed. A powerhouse creative, he wrote and composed too many mesmerizing songs to note, and was always challenging himself artistically. From Purple Rain to Sign of the Times, to his latest experiments- (HITnRun Phase II),his imagination was always on the move, stretching the boundaries of musical possibility.
Not surprisingly, his Terpsichore was in Virgo, (a very balletic sign), as he was a true lover of dance. Shortly after Diamond’s and Pears was released, after seeing the Joffrey Ballet, he was inspired to compose for ballet, and ended up composing the music for “Billlboards”, one of the Joffrey Ballet’s most memorable pieces.
His enthusiastic financial support of ballet should be well noted, as he made a generous donation to Harlem’s Uptown Dance Academy, a school that specializes in high quality ballet training for aspiring African American ballerinas and danseurs. His collaboration with American Ballet Theater’s first African American principle dancer, Misty Copeland (a Virgo), also attest to his fascination with the ballerina mystique.
He was a Gemini (a musical coat of many colors), with a Scorpio ascendant and Pisces moon. Yes. Prince was deep. Let his music move us over and over again, as the stars intended~
