Emmylou Harris was born on April 2 1947 in Birmingham, Alabama to a military traveling family. She has won 14 Grammys, the Polar Music Prize, and numerous other honors, including induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame. In 2018 she was presented the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.
Ms. Harris a multi-talented singer songwriter was rectified to 23 Gemini, a Chinese laundry symbolizing her standard bearer role as a woman (Venus at the Midheaven conjunct Mercury to Mars) in very male dominated country-rock arena. Through unremitting hard labour and personal determination she has been successful in all aspects of the competitive music business while retaining her poise and romantic outlook.
Her see-saw temperament type definitely helped her, making the change from country to rock ; singing to songwriting, performing and producing, Emmylou has the spirit that whatever in life comes her way she can make it work (Jupiter in the sixth). This is supported by her creative genius, Neptune, lying s on the fifth house cusp of creative outlets. Neptune that fanciful dreamer rules the rhythm and harmony of music because of the waves that rock the world.
Emmylou’s North Node is in the first house conjunct her first house cusp. Donna van Toen tells Ms. Harris that she is not rational when it come to relationships but works too much with the heart and it usually ends up badly. She also recommends that she take up leadership roles and cultivate responsibility. Her south node, van Toen says, makes decision making problematic for Emmylou and that she should think in strategies and not feelings. Probably this is hard for Ms Harris to do with her preponderance in watery houses.
