Lady Gaga certainly turned heads at today’s Met Gala in a head-turning 16 min, 4 outfit performance has blitzed social media. Having the great honour of co-hosting the Met Gala this year, she was the first to walk the red carpet after main host Anna Wintour, and making an entrance that is on the tip of everyone’s tongues.
I do love Gaga as her chart has similarities to mine, and she is a tremendous performer. As an Aries sun, with Moon in Scorpio, Mars in Capricorn holds a strong placement in her chart, and she certainly has worked hard to achieve the fame and recognition she has today. She also has Venus in Aries, so her daring style is out there, pushing the boundaries, in our faces. A dress made of meat, a sheer nun’s habit, a Kermit coat and a hair hat to name just a few past styles – Gaga is not one afraid to make a bold statement with her fashion choices. With Venus is in the 11th house, along with her Sun, Gaga is passionate about inclusion and equal rights for all and often uses her clothes to make political statements to draw attention to such issues. The Kermit coat was a statement against wearing fur, an oversized suit was a statement against the male-dominated US film industry and her famous “meat dress” was to protest government restrictions on the rights of gay soldiers. Having Uranus on the Descendant adds an edge of shock and surprise to get the messages out further.
What interests me is the astrology of today as it’s a huge year for her, and this is like the icing on the cake. Firstly, today’s Mars-Jupiter opposition lies across her 1st and 7th house, both angular houses which make her hard to miss. Picking up her Gemini Ascendant and Sagittarius Descendant, it’s no wonder everyone is talking/tweeting/filming her today, especially with the Moon in Gemini lighting up her first house too. Jupiter is also close to her natal Uranus, adding even more shock value into all of this as she stripped off the layers to sparkly bra and panties and her bare skin. Gaga has just moved into a 10th house profection year as well, with Jupiter as her time lord, so the Mars-Jupiter opposition has even more significance in promoting her into the public eye in an expansive yet audacious way.
I noticed that today’s look is very similar to a look worn by fellow Venus in Aries, Marilyn Monroe, in her role in “Gentleman Prefer Blondes” with the hot pink sheath dress and platinum blonde hair. With Venus currently in Aries, and close to a Venus return for both Gaga and Monroe’s chart, it’s like a revisit to the style of old, when Marilyn’s pin-up style was considered brash and outrageous too. It makes me wonder what message she is trying to convey this time? With her Scorpio Moon trine Mercury in Pisces, there are usually hidden, subversive meanings in all she does… what are your thoughts?
