We already talked about Lana Del Leo’s astrology right here - her Gemini Sun/Lilith conjunction, Venus/Ascendant-Pluto square (she has “trust no one” inked on her right hand) Neptune-Sun opposition (she is now sober, having beat a drinking issue in her teens) and hard-driving Mars in Capricorn, the most ambitious Mars of all.
But it’s her Leo Rising that most interests me today because she dumped her “Lizzie Grant” persona and created the more theatrical and marketable Lana Del Rey right after Saturn had crossed her Leo Rising and when Uranus was trining it from Aries. Pluto was also on her Neptune so maybe she was harnessing Haute Neptune powers and thinking in pure deep terms of self-recreation, not just a mere stage name.
Changing your name is ULTRA strong mojo – it’s one of the most depth-transformations you can do even though, of course, on the face of it is fairly simple – just words and some bureaucracy. She obviously was striving to evoke olden day starlets and all but did she also check the numerology? I’m not a numerologist – i just know the basic system A = 1 and so forth but it’s fascinating.
Could you/would you create a whole new identity – beyond what we have online & digitally? – how far would you go? Is new persona creation a speciality of strong Leo/Neptune types…The most potent example of a Leonic – Neptune type who stage managed a new persona is Marilyn Monroe…My theory is that Lana Del Leo knows of the similarity in their astro (Marilyn had a strong Lilith too) and hence the referencing of her in National Anthem.
She gets to preserve her Moon-Uranus in Saggo radical candor (Moon in Saggo should never ever lie, it’s terrible for them) by saying ‘no’ when asked the idiotic question: does she have collagen in her lips? because obviously it would be a more contemporary dermal filler.
