Thank you for blessing us with yours.
Aretha Franklin had the sun exalted in Aries, and the moon in its own domicile, in Cancer. Her luminaries where extra bright ✨, strong, and capable of doing their job, which is to shine.
The ruler of her Scorpio ascendant (and her sun), Mars, is in Gemini and conjunct Jupiter. Mars and Jupiter together amplify the warrior spirit within. There’s a natural exuberance and talent for being boldly abundant. In Gemini, that is communicated in epic proportions. Jupiter also speaks to faith, spirituality, and the generosity of spirit that comes with being connected to something Divine. Fighting for justice from that place is powerful.
When Angela Davis was being held in prison in 1970 it was Aretha who paid to get her out, “Angela Davis must go free. Black people will be free. I’ve been locked up (for disturbing the peace in Detroit) and I know you got to disturb the peace when you can’t get no peace. Jail is hell to be in. I’m going to see her free if there is any justice in our courts, not because I believe in communism, but because she’s a Black woman and she wants freedom for Black people. I have the money; I got it from Black people—they’ve made me financially able to have it—and I want to use it in ways that will help our people.”
There are no words for the ways in which her talent, her gifts, her energy, her light, and her love filled the world through each song she sang.
Rest in Power, your life and memory will always be a blessing. .
