Annie Lennox was born on December 25, 1954, in Aberdeen, Scotland. This means that she will experience a direct hit from the Capricorn Solar Eclipse coming up this December. What will it mean for her?
Solar Eclipses bring breakthroughs and new beginnings. This might represent a time of her reinventing herself yet again. Also, with the Saturn-Pluto conjunction on January 12 at 22 degrees Capricorn, Lennox will experience the conjunction close to her Chiron in Capricorn as well as, in opposition to her Natal Uranus at 26 degrees Cancer and Natal Jupiter at 27 degrees Cancer (in her 10th House of Career/Public) and the Sat-Pluto conjunction tightly sextiles her Natal Venus and Saturn in Scorpio (a sign that rules the phoenix rising from ashes).
As we arrive at the Capricorn Season, this is one person to watch mainly because of the Solar Eclipse launching a new beginning for her. The matching Lunar Eclipse at 20 degrees Cancer on January 10, 2020, sextiles her Natal Venus and Saturn in her Third House of Communication (and siblings). Since she has Capricorn in her 4th House and Cancer in her 10th House, I feel like the areas of home and public are highlighted along with her career. She could launch a new musical project, an album, or some other meaningful project that with this Capricorn energy will have lasting effects and longevity. She's also officially an elder at 65 years of age so she could receive acclaim in the form of a lifetime achievement award in England (a Capricorn country) or in the US (a Cancer country). She could also sell a home.
Lennox's Past Transits
On February 18, 1989, Lennox announced that she was taking a sabbatical due to experiencing a nervous breakdown. On this day, Venus had already opposed her Natal Uranus/Jupiter and conjunct her Natal Chiron at the beginning of the month. Then, on the 18th when she made the announcement, transiting Uranus (which rules the brain and nervous system) was in a conjunction with her Natal Mercury (also rules the brain and nervous system) and her Natal Sun.
If that wouldn't be enough to fry the neural pathways, transiting Neptune conjunct Saturn (11 and 10 degrees Capricorn) conjunct Lennox's Natal Moon at 11 Capricorn. A Uranus transit to the Sun or Moon can blow out the nervous system or definitely bring up health concerns. Add a major Neptune transit to the mix to a chart that contains mostly Water and Earth in it, and we're looking at emotional instability too as an old way or structure dissolves leaving the person feeling lost and confused.
Another major event happened on September 3, 2003, when Lennox's mother died. On this day, Saturn transited at 10 degrees Cancer opposing Lennox' Natal Moon (which represents the mother). Uranus and Mars were retrograde at 0 and 3 degrees Pisces so it formed a sextile with Lennox Natal Sun and Mercury which are in the 4th House of the Mother/Home. Pluto transited at 17 degrees Sagittarius in the 3rd House and this squared Lennox' Natal Mars which is in her 6th House of Work.
Finally, Neptune was RX at 11 Aquarius widely squaring her Natal Saturn. This would have been her remaining parent since her father died in 1986 at the age of 61.
Personality as Seen in the Natal Chart
From what I've read, Annie Lennox, when she isn't on stage, is an introvert and a private person. She is also extremely sexy and even androgynous in a David Bowie way (Bowie was a Capricorn too). While people often associate the eccentric rock music personalities and actors as Aquarius, they are usually Capricorn. And when we comb through history, we find that many shocking personalities were Capricorn such as Joan of Arc, Elvis Presley, Michael Stipe (R.E.M.), David Bowie, Diane Keaton (remember Annie Hall?), and Marlene Dietrich (the iconic actress).
Annie Lennox has no planets in Aquarius but she was born a member of the Pluto in Leo Generation and she has her Neptune in Libra, also generational. Besides, she is an Earthy person with the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Chiron, and the North Node in the sign of the Mountain Goat. Her Ascendant is at 23 degrees Virgo and then all the other planets are in Water Signs (Venus, Mars, Saturn, Uranus, and Jupiter). This woman has a wide palette of emotions to work with. With Venus and Saturn in Scorpio, she oozes sexuality but it's also a vague and confused sexuality because she blurs the line between masculine and feminine as seen with her stage presence and videos.
I think that she would have felt at odds with her generation due to all that Capricorn and Cancer energy. She would relate better with Gen-X with their Uranus and Pluto in Virgo. Oddly, it was Gen-X that embraced the Eurythmics.
Also, with so many planets in Capricorn, her music and legacy won't be fading anytime soon. She acts as a mentor for younger singers and musicians whether she has that awareness or not. She has the ability to reinvent herself and the image of women with Venus conjunct Saturn in Scorpio in the 3rd House of communication and learning. She is also a mysterious neighbor or she travels incognito.
Besides having a plethora of planets in Capricorn which gives her a Cardinal Earth Sign focus, she has two powerful duets in her birth chart (Venus and Saturn in Scorpio along with Uranus and Jupiter in Cancer). Again, this a woman with deep mystery, sexual allure, and deep emotions. No wonder she is an iconic performer. The most interesting duet is Jupiter and Uranus in the 10th House because this due gives her an Aquarius signature or at least we see her that way.
With this little bit of knowledge under your belt, keep an eye on Annie Lennox around the Capricorn Solar Eclipse on December 25, 2019, and again on January 12, 2020. I assure you she will be in the spotlight on those days.
The following day after I wrote this post, I found this article on Annie Lennox buying a house. It will be interesting to see how this plays out around the Solar Eclipse and the Saturn-Pluto conjunct on January 12, 2020, which is also right after the Cancer Lunar Eclipse on January 10. Cancer and Capricorn figure prominently in her chart.
