Tirza was a platinum blonde burlesque performer and plumber of quite stunning eccentricity. And they named an asteroid after her. There is an asteroid Tirza, not at all important in astrology, but still.
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. An early adopter, she scored a sponsorship deal for her “wine bath’ act.
She Danced Glowing In The Dark With Huge Radium-Covered Bat Wings
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 in astrology 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?
Asteroid Tirza Astrology Is Super Niche But How Cool Was She?
Asteroid Tirza astrology is not, it’s true, a vital chart factor for anything. But still, she was such a cool woman. Her real name was Leona Duval and though she was born in the early part of the 20th Century, she lived long enough to sue someone in 2001, for appropriating her burlesque act.
Her birthday is secret but I bet she was a Uranian.
