Saint Tirza

Filed in Asteroids

Tirza was a platinum blonde burlesque performer and plumber of quite stunning eccentricity.

A ballet-dancer turned stripper during the Depression, she was constantly reinventing her act. And as an avid technophile, she marketed her act as the “triumph of sexology with technology”.Β  For her act ‘The Spider’ she danced glowing in the dark with huge radium covered bat wings. She did a nine minute striptease under a shower of red wine, regaling her audience with the legend of Bacchus the whole time. Tirza had a classical myth thing going on too.

During World War II she got herself a plumbers license so as to be more able to set up her own act and traveled the military zones to entertain the soldiers. Sadly, i can find no birth data for the lady or info re her later life BUT asteroid Tirza is number 267 & you can throw her into your chart via the awesome Astrodienst Extended Chart Options.

Tirza is currently at 9 Aquarius – near Cat Goddess Bast & the Moon: a fabulous combo yes? What would asteroid Tirza signify in your chart? Performance, guts, originality?

Tirza in Virgo in the 3rd House – conjunct the ic. She is trine Pallas & Vertex in Cap/8th.
I read that planets on the angles express themselves more loudly? If so my Tirza is a noisy placement.
Perhaps sexy verbal performances could provide money?
I know, phone sex operator who by a stroke of vertex ends by being willed other people’s $!!

Tiza at 16 Libra. How does that play with my Saturn at 16 Cancer? Perfect square? Explains so much.

Natally Tirza is Pisces is the 8th, she is transiting over my sun, Mercury then Venus. This answers a lot.

Tirza’s in my crowded 1sh house, together with Venus, Mars, Pluto and Uranus. Perhaps I should only rely on myself? Find strength to overcome whatever hardships I encounter purely by focussing on my own inner self?

I love this blog and everyone on it!!!! Mystic you are extra fabulous. I am traveling through China for work and am subtly subverting the status quo telling our suppliers anything they want to know about the outside world listening to there side of the story and deeply moved by the fate of the adverse person of course I have read about what happens here but it is another thing to witness. All I can say is I am eternally grateful I was so lucky to be born in the lucky country! Australians run outside look at your beautiful blue… Read more »

The by-line of my business used to be ‘Hi-Tech & Human Touch’.

When i have the time shall check her position in chart as this is intriguing
as much as her hand poses. Perhaps she’s doing a Kali.

Anyone know how long Merc is in Sagg? Have urge to fire off some missives of inconvenient truths to a few peeps who are either wimps or
full of assumed power, ass being the operative word.
The mantra of ‘Evolve or Evaporate’ is just so superb. Thanx MM, it’s being used & you will lgo down in history for it πŸ™‚

Hmmm…. 7th house in Virgo. I adore burlesque dancers (took classes for a few months on and off) … my first date with my husband involved burlesque … but virgo? Also just slightly smack off my SN … not sure what to make of this.

J’adore! Love these posts and this sort of can-do creature. how clever was she with her marketing as well?! I have Tirza on my libra rising and can guarantee i intend to work this, and is it just me or is this aquarius moon very relaxing compared to the last month? I feel more chilled then i have in a long time – of course it may just be the champagne and my new (carbon-neutral) baby doll sauvignon blanc. thank u mm for this post AND for the warnings in the dialies – an hour i ago i staggered in… Read more »

long lunches…. *sigh* I was in advertising.

On my birthday my boss took the studio out for lunch and we got back in the afternoon at 4pm and he said “no point working now, lets take the rest of the afternoon off” πŸ™‚

That would NEVER happen now!!!

um adaptive might be a more appropriate term than evolving..

jicky

i guess that she was a great proponent of evolving during difficult times: becoming a stripper, learning a trade to be self-sufficient. tirza is close to my natal sun. originality and self-evolution are good themes to go with..

Tirza conjunct Venus in the 1st house. Sounds like I could put this to good use…

Tirza joins Circe and Moon at 12 Libra squaring Juno-Lilith-Mercury-Venus-Ascendant stellium. I have some new personas to work with. Yay! *runs away to join the circus*

And prime suspect for shooting a fellow performers doves therefore sabotaging her act

Role model! I really wanna know her chart…like really really reaaaallllyyyy.

How do you officially become an astro-saint and get an asteroid named after you? Who gets to decide?

my Venus-Aqua/Uranus-Libra Trine was intrigued by “sexology with technology” but i think i found the red wine and her plumber’s license more of a turn on than the radium… shame because batwings sound jarringly sensual on a woman…mmm

This is a job for the Reference Desk at the New York Public Library.

On the card, I notice the Broadway NYC address, and a manager’s name. There were always collectors of this stuff and surely the library acquired collections and other data.

So will you enquire? I actually wonder if she was a Kataka. Her name was Tirza du Val.

Hey guess what her birthday was 11 July.

“Tirza’s birthday celebration, July 11, was featured by a three- carat diamond ring, gift from Charles Franchini.”

I noted most birthday notes in Billboard were about her mother Daisy…she lived with her ma.

“… a nine minute striptease under a shower of red wine” .. reminds me of my own less than stellar performance at an industry awards night decades ago. When they called our names to receive an award, my art director asked, ‘are you too pissed to walk to the stage?’ and I said, witheringly, ‘of course not’. I stood up, dropped my glass, and my towering heels promptly collapsed under the sudden redistribution of weight. Mini skirt up the wazoo, stockings akimbo, to say nothing of my career. Thank goodness for the shoulder pads in my lambswool-and-mirror-tile jumper, which cushioned… Read more »

Tirz is exact on my Sun-Moon MC in Cancer.

I love her balance of masculine / feminine.

Plumber is a classic male occupation.

I think the way she shows up in my life is my ability to evenly balance wearing chapstick and lipstick – meaning because she’s on my MC I’m not regarded as a bimbo nor pseudo alpha male.

BANG on my NN in Aqua πŸ™‚

I love her ingenuity – she certainly did invent the rent.

My asteroid Scheherezade conjunct Leo MC is certainly impressed that she brought the tale of Bacchus to her captive audience.

Stripper and plumber. Practical lass…wasn’t Gypsy Rose Lee also a practical Capricorn?
