In the Key of Pisces: Chris Martin
“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.
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.
