Lana Del Ray – genius name, sounds like a rat pack moll via J.G. Ballard – is Gemini (Sun-Lilith) with Moon in Saggo and Leo Rising. But i.m.o the key to her chart is that Leo Rising + her Mars in Capricorn. Mars in Capricorn is like the ultimate, total work-horse. But the Leo-Capricorn combo is one of the most likely to be successful/famous.
Think about the Leo-Capricorn types you have met – they’ve got a weird thing going on, right? Leo Rising on its own could be a simple attention seeker, loving the light and to bathe in the fine jetstream of regard, genuine love for their fans and the Art but could technically still piss it all away. Leo by itself needs to be the biggest fish in any pond BUT is quite capable of downsizing to a smaller pond if need be.
But not with some Capricorn happening. However, Capricorn on its own will work their arse off to satisfy whatever goal. Divas don’t take days off. Capricorn does not relax by relaxing. Capricorn relaxes by succeeding. There is plenty of space at the top. But Capricorn can also slave away quite happily in obscurity. Unless…there is some strong Leo in the equation. There will be recognition. Or else.
So can you see how Leo-Cap combos like Lana Del Leo Rising are quite the triple-threat? The ones i’ve met don’t fuq around – they’re frightening. I’ve seen them at parties, appraising the people who had “something to offer” and i’ve known them to arise at 4.30am, just like Olympic swimmers, to ensure they can “fit everything in.”
Leo Rising also has the ability to be totally objective about his/her appearance, happily surrendering personal ego (oddly enough) to seek the ministrations of expert stylists. Cultivated persona? Fake name? Why not?
And Mars in Capricorn just goes for it: all goal-setting, all the time. No mountain peak is high enough for these peeps. See also Katie Perry, Gwen Stefani & Lady Gaga. Pure self-created divas with the rawest work ethic this side of Saturn itself.
