In the Key of Virgo: Leonard Cohen

September 21, 2018

The great Leonard Cohen: born on this day, September 21, 1936.

Ascendant and Sun are both at 27° Virgo — a great heart — and they make a perfect square to the MC in Gemini (a career as a wordsmith).

The two planets of art, Venus and Neptune, are also exactly conjunct too — at 12° Virgo in the 12th house of the collective soul. Cohen’s music has, arguably, now reached a wider audience even than his brilliant peers Joni Mitchell or Bob Dylan — with the incredible success of that one tune Hallelujah, reinterpreted over and over for each generation.

Then he has a boundless Pisces Moon — the poet’s Moon — opposite Neptune-Venus… Amen.

His Venus at 12 Virgo falls right in the middle of my Mars at 13 Virgo and Venus at 16 Virgo, I’m a long time fan of his. Here’s another gem from his performance at “London Live” in 2009.

Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That’s how the light gets in”

Yes. Chiron in wordsmith Gemini makes a perfect trine to NN in Aquarius in the 5th house of creativity.
