Liberace Made It Big

Filed in Taurus

Speaking of jewels, these are the much treasured baubles of the Taurean artiste Liberace, about to be played in a movie by Michael Douglas...Matt Damon plays his long term partner Scott Thorson.  Can’t wait for this film.

Liberace also had Venus-Pluto-Jupiter in Kataka – that would do it with the love of talismans. Jupiter-Pluto is also a classic wealth signature in astrology. He was Capricorn Rising, being currently squared by Uranus, sextiled by Neptune, conjoined by Pluto – of course his life is being made into a major movie now. Remember; Even when you’re in another dimension, your chart keeps on being activated.

Raised during the Depression Era, his talents turned him into the highest paid entertainer on Earth for several decades, he flaunted his eccentricities, lived ludicrously lavishly, was ultra-camp, an epic ego-maniac and brilliant businessman.  His response to a critic who had reviewed him savagely (schmaltzy etc) “I cried all the way to the bank” entered general lingo.

Astro-Fiends: He had Uranus in the $$$ sector trine his Midheaven and Venus…He dreamed up his life, his wealth, his surreal flamboyance.  Oh and the Leo you wonder…What does he have in Leo…Saturn (his chart ruler) and Neptune.  He did all his astro perfectly.

  1. Wow, brill post MM! “Did his astro perfectly” .
    I have Jupiter in Kataka too.
    I have Saturn in Leo and Leo Rising. My chart ruler is the Sun and it’s ruled by Venus in my $$$ house conjunct NorthNode and Pluto; Moon on MC is ruled by Venus and my Uranus in 3rd is also ruled by Venus; while Venus herself is in my 1st house.

  2. Read Liberace wanted his lover to undergo mucho plastic surgeries to look like younger version of himself. House chock full of mirrors, I’d wager.

  3. Oh gosh. This reminds me… last time I was in LA I went to the ‘Museum of Death’ (trust me I’m not deranged, it was a great museum and so much more fun than the Getty). Anyway, the owners have put alot of effort into acquiring random death-related memorabilia, including lots of Liberace’s stuffed animals. Yep.. after his cats and other beloved pets carked it, he had them stuffed and then proudly “showcased” in his living room. I’m not sure if this is the hallmark of someone who ‘can’t let go’ or more a creepy kinda ‘Fluffy’s dead. He’d look fahhhhhhhbulous over by the white leather recliner”.

  4. ” Jupiter-Pluto is also a classic wealth signature in astrology”

    Mystic does that include a trine? 🙂 Cos I have that.

  5. Not this one.

    He had protoge’s ?? , Jamie Redfern(14) Scotty Plumber (14 )

    All above board ?

  6. I wonder what signs i have that make me dislike gaudy jewelry whether it’s expensive diamonds, gold it just doesn’t appeal to me. I have sun and other plants in Virgo, none in Capricorn. Never been fond of garnish, lavish or gauche jewelry. (Just can’t stand not to be practical or at least wearable)
    I usually love high camp but on others not me. I prefer simple, minimal pieces that are a simple modern statement or rugged chain bracelet and/or leather cuff, and dog tags, chokers that can withstand stage and tour. I like the pared down dirty rocker look. Looks like Joan Jett was a Virgo too.

    • I think you just answered your own question, scorpiorising – your Viirgo parts find the ostentatious display of jewellry and wealth distasteful; your Scorpio-ness wonders why someone would reveal so much

        • yes, if large a statement piece. very modern.
          I wonder if all Earth signs feel similar?
          So fire signs love the bling?

      • ha ha! You’re right. I was wondering if Earth signs are just not impressed by glitterly “bling.” I even hate that term. 😛

  7. Oh how interesting about Jupiter-Pluto! Noticed that conjunction (along with Mercury too) in chart of my son’s girlfriend. She comes from an extremely wealthy family. Her Leo Mars squares her Scorpio Jupiter-Pluto-Mercury lineup though . . now what does that mean?

  8. ‘Cried all the way to the bank’, so it came from Liberace, not my mother.
    Is Liberace where the rappers got their love of bling from?

    • I’d say yes, but they wouldn’t ever admit to it!
      A gay Liberace started the “bling” movement. Love it!

  9. I just read his full wiki, great story. I think he was probably from another planet. A bit like the man who fell to earth. How else does a piano player from a humble mid west background become the highest paid entertainer on the planet ? I think he invented ‘Glam’ really. Apparently he gave Barbara Streisand her first break and inspired Elton John. I see him in Elvis, Michael Jackson, Prince, Mick Jagger, so many others.
    As Zero Mostel says in The Producers..flaunt it baby, flaunt it !!

    • “As Zero Mostel says in The Producers..flaunt it baby, flaunt it !!”

      That is one of my favourite movie lines, ever…. love it

  10. Mystic can you PLEASE answer my question!! 🙂 .. or any other astro fiends.

    If Jupiter-Pluto is a classic wealth signature, are you talking a conjunction?

    What about a trine, square or opposition?

    Great post btw!! 🙂

  11. Oh no – jupiter pluto sesquisquare “disharmonius” according to Bummer!!

    And i thought my bling- hatred was just aqua rising not liking jewellery on my hands.

  12. Mystic refers to : money sector, love sector, etc.? I know she’s referring to the houses, but what’s the quick one-work cheat sheet for each sector?

    how do you figure out the chart ruler? As in Liberce having Saturn in Leo as his chart ruler??? Thanks !
