In the Key of Pisces: Tre Italiani
Thanks to my friend and reader, Sabrina, for pointing out that the late-lamented Italian singer-songwriter Lucio Dalla was born on March 4, 1943. He has a solo Sun in Pisces with other planets extraordinarily evenly spread through his chart. Sun does make a lovely trine to Jupiter in sentimental nostalgic Cancer.
Here he is singing about Enrico Caruso, perhaps the greatest Italian tenor before Pavarotti — and another Pisces, born on February 25, 1873.
But I had another Italian popster lined up for this day too. Umberto Tozzi, who is most famous outside Italy for this huge euro-hit of the 1980s, which has repetitive yearning that is rather Piscean. Tozzi has Sun, Mercury in Pisces and the North Node at 0° of the sign.
And then there’s Vivaldi, the Venetian genius, also born on March 4. Vivaldi was born with a Sun-Jupiter conjunction, probably in the 6th house of service — appropriate for a priest-musician. Enjoy.
