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”. 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?
