Neptune & The GOATS Nas, Tupac, Biggie etc

I watched Nas’ Time is Illmatic this week, it got me wondering how may GOATS (greatest artists of all time) particularly rappers have a prominent Neptune in their natal chart. For those of you that aren’t familiar with Neptune it rules:
• Dreams
• Psychic Ability
• Imagination
• Bodies of water
• Idealism
• Illusion
• Addictive elements; drugs to drinking
• Fortune Telling
• The Illuminati & other so called secret societies
• Art and Music
• Neptune rules Pisces and Pisces rules the feet so here we find dance
• It rules the drug user and the drug dealer
• The thief
• The conartist
• All creative types
There is a strong desire with Neptunian individuals to make the intangible tangible. They often want to give form to their creative/ imaginative/idealistic dreams.
Neptunian individuals are often considered the sinner or the saint.
I have a prominent Neptune; located in my 10th house. People rarely see me clearly. Once while taking tennis lessons I was in a crabby mood (I am a cancer) and my instructor said “here Queen take the court” in a very rude manner. On the way home from tennis some lady at the supermarket accused me of stealing bottled water. LOL I said it’s a rare occasion that I get to be the sinner and the saint, the Queen and the pauper all in one day.
I understand that desire to give form to your dreams. I get that even growing up in the midst of a less then idealistic environment, the desire to chase dreams? To find that perfect landscape off in the distance.My Neptune in the 10th house forms a grand fire trine to my natal Moon and natal Saturn. I considered myself to be a realist while maintaining the belief that all things are possible. I feel you can wake up one day and change your entire life.
The GOATS have/had to think that, they had to believe in better days. They had to possess the ability to take a dream, an ideal and turn it into something real.

Nas has Neptune sextiling his Mercury, planet of communication we do not have his exact birth time but I do believe he quite possibly has Neptune on an angle (in the 1st, 4th, 7th and/or 10th house). To me he conveys this Neptunian idealism most outwardly in the lyric:
“open every door in Attica send em’ to Africa”
The entire “Street Dreams” album title to me is Neptune. Taking what you view around you, absorbing the elements and turning it into song
The Album entitled “Nastradamus” is so Neptune with Nostradamus ruling prophecy; prophecy/psychic ability being a Neptune thing.

I am not sure how others feel about DMX

I 100% feel he could have been a GOAT had he not suffered from apparent mental illness combined with drug addiction. Both the darker sides of Neptune. He has Neptune squaring his moon which is a highly creative aspect but plagued at times with difficulties such as the aforementioned.

Eminem also has a prominent Neptune; it is at the tail end of his 12th house conjunct his ascendant. Here we have another person that has had to deal with the positive and negative attributes of Neptune

Biggie

Had Sun opposite Neptune
From the drug dealer to the artist
“it was all a dream” Hello does it get any more Neptune then that
His album Life After Death is very Neptunian; Neptune rules the 12th house of the after life

Although I don’t consider him GOAT, innovative more so but Jay Z has natal Neptune conjunct Venus and Mars square Neptune
He obviously has a long catalog of music

And last but definetly not least Tupac

2015/01/img_0878.jpg
Tupac had Jupiter conjunct Neptune, Moon trine Neptune, Venus opposite Neptune and several other Neptune aspects
Out of everyone I feel Tupac embodies Neptune most I saw him as a sort of prophet if we use the definition of prophet as “an effective or leading spokesman for a cause, doctrine, or group” odd as that may sound but I think he had a message to deliver and convey regarding certain social injustices. I think he falls under that Neptune veil of confusion people see him as either an artist or possibly as a criminal (he was convicted of sexual assault in the early 90s) , perhaps people saw him as violent having once hit a Director while filming a movie. And maybe he was ALL of those things a prophet, a sinner, an artist and a saint. Let us not forget The mysterious circumstances surrounding his death and his last album to be officially released prior to his death, entitled Makaveli.

The Astrology of Reclusive Celebrities

I happen to be thinking of Eminem the other day I’m not sure why maybe because his new song Monster was on the radio. I like him, my go to Karaoke song is “I’m whatever you say I’m”. I get him; that feeling of living under a microscope people wanting to define you, wanting to shove you in a box and label you. Some woman at work once yelled at me. “I know who you are. I know all about you”. I had to laugh wow, really, you do I assure you know nothing about me. I’m accustomed to people watching me, concerned with me & what I do when I quite frankly don’t care what anyone does. I have Neptune conjunct my Midheaven there is that twinge of glamour but the price to pay is high. The 10th house is the highest point in the chart it can be the filter through which the world sees you, it represents your ambition, your contribution to the world if you will. I’ve suffered false accusations on things I wouldn’t dare write about, people have always judged me attempt to label me, don’t see me clearly I feel that I live my tiny life through a magnifying glass I can’t imagine how that feels on a grand scale being a celebrity. The Kim Kardashians of the world, don’t interest me. I don’t watch gossip shows E or whatever. I will read a gossip magazine if someone gave it to me, but I certainly wouldn’t purchase one. I don’t understand people that approach celebrities or want autographs. I think this stems from my Pluto in the 8th house squaring my Sun in the 5th. I get the need for privacy. The sun is the ego the 5th is the house of creativity so sure I write here, I tweet, I act in my free time, I’m outgoing by all appearances but once you get to know me you will find I like to spend a crazy amounts of time alone I act not for fame but to be surrounded by interesting eccentric types. That is how I give of myself, here on this blog but I’m not the type of person whose house you will drop by uninvited, I live in an apartment with 24 hour security. I chose how I want to share; whom I share with. I can’t imagine how it is celebrities that are like me… exist. I mean I just have to fend off nosy neighbors not the entire world, not fans, paparazzi and the media. I Googled Eminem after he popped into mind and was unable to find much about his present day life. He may be engaged he may not be and there is the speculation of his affiliation with the illuminati…but then again the nosy lady down the hall from me thinks I’m a prostitute because I work nights ha ha. Eminem has a stellium in the 9th house. See here courtesy of astrotheme.com

And while the sun and Pluto do not directly connect all of those planets come from the same house, so they are all filtered through one another, they act as one. The Sun in the 10th house is a very public position, it declares “here I’m” put that with Pluto planet of control and secrecy along with the Sun whether it is opposition, conjunction, square or coming out of the same house acting in unison; you will want to have some if not complete control over the way you share yourself generally speaking. Perhaps not always-Pluto also rules prostitution, Guess that explains Kim Kardashians Sun conjunct Pluto in the 10th house. Selling sex as a career. I think she is the anomaly for this however. I tried to think of other extremely private celebrities but I couldn’t think of any other than Johnny Carson (Moon opposite Pluto) so I googled it and found Time Magazine had released a list
J.D. Salinger
Howard Hughes
Greta Garbo
Harper Lee
Emily Dickinson
Syd Barrett
Bill Watterson
Thomas Pynchon
Dave Chappelle
Marcel Prous

Over half the people on the list had Pluto opposite moon or Pluto on the Sun via Square or opposition
Pluto represents
Darkness, secrecy, control, privacy, death, rebirth, probing, destruction, annihilation, the underworld, things that are buried, hidden, taboo, power, survival, security, paranoia, excess
Sun Represents
Some what the opposite of Pluto, life, light, ego, energy, identity, creative expression
When Pluto is on the Sun a person oscillates between being all out shining brightly and then hiding. The need to express itself via whatever outlet the house the sun is in and hiding away from the world.
Moon Represents
Our emotional responses, the past, safety, our needs, fluctuation, instinct
When Pluto is on the moon it is said that people want to control what people know about them. I do see that as being entirely true. As a person with Pluto on my Sun and Moon I think it is more of a case of not wanting others to stir up our emotions, our joys and our anger, we feel everything deep. And our perception is spot on. I often say we know the end before it begins. So it isn’t that we want to control what people know we often just want to protect ourselves from the intensity of our feelings. Being well aware that allowing people into our inner worlds also gives them access and opportunity to stir up emotions in us we would rather keep buried.
