May 27 is Siouxsie Sioux’s birthday.
Of all the female Gemini fashion icons in the music business, the two that immediately come to my mind are the two that don’t dress like Gemini natives at all: Siouxsie Sioux and Stevie Nicks. I discuss Stevie Nicks’ sense of style in my latest book, attributing her “Witchy Woman” look to her natal moon in Capricorn conjunct the midheaven from the tenth house in opposition to Venus in Cancer conjunct the IC. To me, that’s enough to make someone fond of the darker side of fashion.
But what about Siouxsie Sioux? She has one of the most-distinctive looks in the history of pop music. Is there something in her chart that makes her look quite the opposite of the Gemini I describe in “Star Struck Style”?
Yes, of course there is. However, I don’t have a time of birth for the singer, so I can’t really put her chart into context like I can with Stevie Nicks’ horoscope. She does have both the moon and Mercury in Taurus, the sun and Venus in Gemini, and Mars in Cancer. I could see an early Cancer rising putting her Mars in the first house, and the sun and Venus in the twelfth. That would make sense to me because it could explain how consistent she has been with her signature look over the years.
She does have a mutual reception aspect between Gemini and Venus, too. I don’t know how that would factor into her appearance, but I did notice it right away. It’s the sort of thing that could be the hallmark of her birth chart if I was able to put the planets into the houses.
So, for now, I’m just going to say that I can see a little of the “darkness” that defines Siouxsie Sioux. Like a few other Gemini music icons — Stevie Nicks, Prince, Boy George and Lenny Kravitz — Sioux doesn’t really need to do much to impress me because her sense of style seems to transcend fashion. I guess that makes it okay that she doesn’t do much to corroborate everything I say about Gemini individuals in my books. She gets a pass from me because she’s just so freaking cool.
