The Taurus artist Liberace was classic Jupiter Pluto conjunct. For several decades, he was the highest paid entertainer on Earth. Jupiter conjunct Pluto is the wealth signature of astrology. Any aspect of these two = riches. But the conjunction is the strongest.
His Venus was also a part of the conjunction, making for a stellium. He was an archetypal Venus Person. His love of jewels, capes, and gilded decor was legendary.
Born a Depression Era Capricorn Rising, he was a child prodigy and entirely self-made. Liberace flaunted his eccentricities and lived ludicrously lavishly. He was ultra-camp, an ego-maniac, and a brilliant businessman. For people with Jupiter Pluto conjunct, money is a spiritual force. Their desire for it runs deep.
Asked for his response to a critic who had reviewed him savagely and said he was schmaltzy? “I cried all the way to the bank.” That’s right. He coined that phrase, and it was later adapted to be “laugh” to the bank.
His Uranus was in the $$ sector, an aspect you see in people who profitably invent themselves. Or even in actual inventors. Liberace filed a patent for a “disappearing toilet” but never put into manufacture. He also played twins on the Batman television series and wrote cookbooks.
The Uranus was in a Grand Water Trine with his Midheaven and the Jupiter Pluto conjunct. You can see it in the way he dreamed up this surreal, extravagant, and utterly unique life.
