Natal chart of Billy Joel

Planetary positions:
Sun: 18° Taurus | Moon: 7° Libra | Mercury: 9° Gemini | Venus: 24° Taurus | Mars: 7° Taurus | Jupiter: 1° Aquarius | Saturn: 29° Leo | Uranus: 28° Gemini | Neptune: 12° Libra | Pluto: 14° Leo | North Node: 24° Aries | Ascendant: 15° Cancer | MC: 25° Pisces

Standouts in the natal chart of Billy Joel

When assessing a horoscope, we always look at the standouts, things that are missing and things that are, on the contrary, overly present, items that are out of balance.

After all, that's what will bring us to the essence and disposition of the person.

Not to overwhelm you with information, we will only assess the horoscope of Billy Joel by looking at the factors that only have some meaning for his love life.

In the horoscope of Billy Joel we can find the following items:

  • the Ascendant is on a critical degree at 15°Cancer
  • Saturn is at 29° Leo, a critical degree
  • the Moon and Mars are in a partile inconjunct at 7° in a sign
  • Venus is in the degree of the Nodes

The Ascendant at 15° Cancer, a critical degree often denoting loneliness and emotional issues.

Saturn at 29° Leo conjunct the Fixed Star Regulus brings renown, wealth and honor.

However, the 29th degree in a sign brings endings too.

Because Saturn is the ruler of the 7th house of partners and relationships, it is no wonder that The Piano Man divorced different times.

The partile Moon-Mars inconjunct at 7° in a sign can be quite difficult to handle.

The Moon is the ruler of the 1st house (Ascendant) and this partile aspect with Mars makes Mars a most powerful planet in the natal chart of Billy Joel.

Because Mars is posited in Taurus, the sign of its detriment, Mars becomes a 'malefic' (some people don't like this word, but just know that this position of Mars can be really upsetting!).

Moreover, the Moon is applying to a conjunction with Neptune, and this aspect too can be quite difficult to handle at times.

The Moon-Mars-Neptune combo denotes extremely disappointing events and can be emotionally very upsetting.

This configuration may denote a feeling of drifting without any direction. Often there is hopelessness.

A planet in the degree of the Node signifies a fatal event and/or a crisis of some sort.

Venus in the degree of the Node, Venus being the planet of love, denotes some fateful events in Billy Joel's love life.



The marriage of Billy Joel

According to www.wboc.com, Billy Joel got married October 2, 2004 in a sunset ceremony at his Long Island mansion, Oyster Bay, New York (40 N 50/ 73 W 00).

The singer-songwriter wed his fiancee, 23-year-old Kate Lee.

To cast the marriage chart, we calculated the exact moment of sunset, which is 6:28 PM Local Time.

Before analyzing this marriage chart we were curious what our own researched Marriage Graphs would tell...

Let's take a look at his 2004 Annual Marriage Graph to see what his best days to marry are:

If this model is correct, October 2, 2004 seems to be a fortunate day for Billy Joel to marry!

Let's zoom in on the Monthly Marriage Graph for October 2004:

October 2004 Marriage Graph of Billy Joel

According to our Monthly Marriage Graph, this day is a fortunate one indeed.

Now, let's take a closer look at this marriage horoscope for a moment.

2004 marriage horoscope of Billy Joel

Planetary positions:
Sun: 10° Libra | Moon: 1° Gemini | Mercury: 7° Libra | Venus: 29° Leo | Mars: 4° Libra | Jupiter: 1° Libra | Saturn: 26° Cancer | Uranus: 3° Pisces | Neptune: 12° Aquarius | Pluto: 19° Sagittarius | North Node: 3° Taurus

And again, lets only assess the standouts:

  • Mars and Uranus are in a platic inconjunct and Uranus is in the degree of the Node
  • there is a partile Moon-Jupiter trine in air signs
  • the Sun and Venus are in mutual reception (by sign)
  • Venus is at a critical degree (29° Leo)

In this marriage horoscope of Billy Joel Mars and Uranus are in an upper or waning inconjunct and Uranus is in the (numerical) degree of the Node denoting some sudden and unexpected accidents, disruptions and violence.

In short, this aspect is about upsetting events, the more so because disruptive Uranus is in the degree of the Node.

Our research is not conclusive yet, but we have found a Mars-Uranus combination in some marriage horoscopes that were marked by physical injuries through accidents or illness (surgery).

Anyway, it's an aspect you better avoid in a marriage horoscope as it often brings a break-up.

In this marriage horoscope of Billy Joel, we can find a YOD-configuration or a double-inconjunct.

Mars is the apex planet and is conjunct Mercury, the Sun and Jupiter.

The upper inconjunct denotes a new situation, a profound change.

Apex Mars in Libra is in its detriment and upsets the balance of Libra pointing to sexual issues here.

No doubt that a partile Moon-Jupiter trine in air signs points to a happy and successful event.

This is one of the best aspects you can have in a marriage horoscope.

It's a blessing bringing optimism and protection.

The Sun and Venus are in mutual reception because the Sun is in Venus' sign Libra and Venus is in the Sun's sign Leo, the Royal Sign.

Mutual reception between the planet of the heart (the Sun) and the planet of love (Venus) points to a love match.

There is exchange between love (Venus) and the heart (the Sun).

This configuration is a blessing in any marriage horoscope.

Moreover, Venus at 29° Leo is conjunct the royal Fixed Star Regulus, bringing honor and wealth.

As you may recall the 29 degrees denote endings (the end of a situation) and bring desire to the foreground.

Venus, planet of relating and love at 29° Leo signifies a desire for love and relating.

Venus is in a position of Royal Love.

However, Venus will soon enter Virgo, bringing a more serious and down-to-earth undertone in the marriage.

Virgo is the sign of servitude and day-to-day activities.

Also note that Venus is moving towards an opposition with retrograde Uranus...

They will oppose one another from 2007/2008 on, still being in the degree of the Node.

It's unlikely this marriage will last!

Aside from these standouts, also note the position of the Sun in conjunction with the Fixed Star 'Vindemiatrix', the Star of Widowhood.
