Why the name Phoenix?
I like the mythology of the Phoenix. They say that pain is the touchstone of spiritual growth. And the story of the Phoenix, for me, alludes to the metaphoric “rising from adversity”. Even stronger than before
“I’ve always loved symbolism and mythology, the symbolism of the phoenix being something that succumbs to the challenges and burns in the fire, but then is resurrected from the ashes and rises up even stronger than before,” Keith told Women’s Wear Daily. “The ‘what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger’ story of the phoenix … I can relate very strongly to that, going through hard times and coming out the other end of it much stronger for the experience.”
You know, this could very easily be a mass produced petrochemical pong with amyl nitrate and recycled horse piss as it’s key notes BUT i love the sentiments here. Phoenix is my fave mythology too. And of course, it’s totally Scorp.
Keith Urban is a triple Scorpio – Sun, Mercury and Neptune – his Mercury (like many an artist, poet, or musician) is retrograde. He’s also got Venus-Pluto-Uranus in Virgo and his Cancerian Moon Rising. Super Phoenix.
