Well, well. Madonna, during a live performance of her new single at the British Music Awards, fell backwards down a small flight of steps, when her Armani cape failed to detach as intended. Vile for anyone but particularly a multiple Leo.
Fittingly, for someone with her decades of experience in show-biz, she handled it seasoned-trouper style and the show went on.
First, i was struck by the stark, slobbering crazy-bats crap in the Daily Mail comments – thousands of them: Illuminati this, Satanic that, disgraceful she is not at home knitting blah blah blah – like a serious deranged flow of paranoia, sexism and ageism. Why shouldn’t anyone who can get the crowds carry on working/performing as long as they want?
THEN, i thought god, was this a subconscious attempt to one-up Kanye? His expletive laced, mob-themed performance-rant would otherwise have been the THING of the event.
And then, i looked at her chart. Saturn did it – that plus someone on wardrobe is likely to be out on his/her toned arse if they are not already.
So Madonna has natal Saturn at 19 Sagittarius – she is approaching her 2nd Saturn Return. Her first Saturn Return was 1987 – that was the divorce from Sean Penn + also when it became clear any cinematic career was not going to emulate the then massive success of her musical brand. Think: Shanghai Surprise, Who’s That Girl. But she shook that off, presumably learned a whole lot from her Saturn Return year and still she rose.
Now, even though Saturn won’t be exact on her natal Saturn again until late 2016, it is squaring her Ascendant in Virgo AND opposing her Gemini Midheaven all damned year. This is always a transit that calls for hardcore pragmatism and reinvention of the public image/brand.
Leaving aside fashion malfunctions and how brilliantly she handled the mishap, it’s hard to escape the weird symbolism of being surrounded by your usual bunch of hot, oiled up Latino-look male model-dancers dressed in bull horns, their faces blurred out like Dionysus worshippers – with you in a Matador outfit, legs, fishnets, being dragged back and down by your cape.
I think she should stop singing about love and go the full Pagan Empress vibe. Or a stripped back torch song vibe WITH patter/wicked gossip/life tips between the songs. She’s worldly, she’s self-made, she has serious OPINION.
ALSO, why matador as the theme?
