Your Question: I have been dealing with and some blocks to financial success in my music career and have been trying to break this pattern of bringing in the amount of money I desire through my passion, as well as overcoming procrastination and fears. I am wondering what is the best way to get my music to my fanbase so that I can become well known on a huge scale. I see this in my chart and in my future.
I hear your natal Saturn speaking loud and clear but I’m initially curious about what you’ve been doing to grow your career. Saturn makes a very nice aspect to your most elevated career indicator which includes Venus, your chart ruler. Plus you have three 10th house planets with Venus being the most elevated. That combined with your Leo energy, suggests a very strong desire to be working closely with the public. Fears and worries arise from Saturn in Scorpio in your money house, which suggest you could put a lot of pressure on your Scorpio Moon in the 2nd house (emotions and financial security), Leo Sun (creative energy) and Leo Mars (fiercely competitive), to perform more and better. Saturn likes to point out all the areas that aren’t up to snuff which generally leaves us unsatisfied until we’ve perfected and mastered the perceived weaknesses.
How we feel about Saturn calling us out is up to us but if you’re like so many people, you may sabotage your own progress. If you were my client, I imagine the coaching would lead us to your Saturn to make sure your self-talk, thoughts and emotions are all in alignment with your ambitions. Money of course is a big part of the overall equation with Saturn in your 2nd house. You want money and you want to express yourself creatively, but Saturn forces us to look at every little detail and many times the payoff is delayed. The Leo energy in your chart is very strong and wants to be noticed. It’s the actor that shows talent, charisma, charm and warmth.
Anyway, 2017 looks like a significant year for you and it could turn out to be a memorable one. It’s an important year when you want to make sure you think, imagine and dream big. The potential is to be in the public eye more so than in the past. When you put your energy out there in 2017, people will respond and you’ll be noticed. If you’re not doing things in a big way this year or have a plans for growth in place, you may start feeling trapped by your work, so it’s important to keep your attention focused on your important goals so you can move towards them.
This year also looks like it could be a new beginning of sorts professionally. Have you been working towards transforming your career, starting something different or simply doing things in a brand new way? This looks like the year when the seeds that you planted start to take root. If you’ve been exploring various options for growing your career, this is probably a good time for you to get serious and nurture what it is you wish to cultivate. If you’ve been thinking about moving, your chart shows this could be the year, more than likely for professional reasons.
There’s a solar eclipse next August which happens to land directly on your Leo Sun, the performer in your chart. Solar eclipses tend to super charge the planet they touch. So for your career in music, this should be a very important time. Eclipses can indicate confusion but if that’s the case, it’s only because you’re gaining more insight and wisdom around this time and feel overwhelmed by so much new data. Clarity will follow and the energy you’ve been putting out there can start to manifest in unexpected ways.
Another thing that can help with 2017 is to restructure, reorganize, get your finances under control and develop or modify your plan for the future. Typically, this is the year when you feel the need to buckle down and get serious. Keeping yourself well organized, structured and freeing yourself of any unnecessary clutter helps.
Thanks very much for your question. I hope this helps. Best of luck with your year.
