In the Key of Pisces: Chris Martin

Thursday March 3rd 2016

“I definitely believe in God. How can you look at anything and not be overwhelmed by the miraculousness of it?” said Pisces singer-songwriter and Coldplay frontman, Chris Martin.

There you have it.

The sound of Coldplay has woven its way into the fabric of the past decade and a half — and it’s the words of Chris Martin we’re hearing. He is the band’s main songsmith, and it’s no wonder, he has Virgo Rising — a real wordsmith ascendant — so Mercury in Pisces rules this chart. Mercury is at 0° Pisces, which gives it an extra dose of dreamy poetry.

Martin has an interesting chart. Moon is in Leo (he loves to perform) and it’s in the 11th house, so he’s at home in groups — much better in a band. Then his Sun is precisely on an angle, the Descendant, he is enlivened in the presence of another.

With that Mercury, there’s not much chance of him running out of musical ideas — although this month Saturn is stationing on Martin’s Neptune, so he may be feeling a bit desiccated.

"His Sun is at the point of a powerful yod — quincunxes from Pluto and Saturn, power and work (I think you can literally see this yod at work in the videos, many of which feature Martin walking towards the camera so the lines of perspective hit him in a quincunx). But the Sun’s position there on the descendant makes him an ideal partner, a team player, better together.” from this previous post.

I could have chosen almost any Coldplay video. It’s all pretty fishy. Yellow is, of course, on the beach, but I thought this new one had a kind of upbeat piscatorial charm and its refers to being at that special Pisces state: slightly out of it, slightly loving it, a little confused.

    Beautiful video! His yod is boomerang…the midpoint of Saturn-Pluto sextile is 12*18′, which is right on his 12*08′ Asc, opposing his Sun. The energy of Saturn-Pluto is focused through his Sun, back to his Asc. He may need other people and work best as part of a team, but I bet he’s acutely focused on his own requirements and how others can assist him…two-way street with him. That intense Saturn-Pluto focus to his Virgo Asc perhaps imparts eccentricity, quirks, and fastidious habits. Maybe that was the charm of Gwyneth.

      I looked at their charts when they consciously uncoupled & actually they suit each other well. Given different circumstances, the relationship might have stuck.
