Cher was born May 20, 1946. She will be 72 years old in 2018.
Her steady and persistent climb to fame is noted with her Sun in Taurus with Moon in Capricorn and Cancer rising.
Her mother and father divorced when she was only 10 months old as her father was a truck driver and had gambling and alcohol addictions.
Her Sun in Taurus is unaspected showing that her father (Sun) was not dependable and she felt alone and without a clear direction in life. Obviously this did not stop her from being one of the most famous entertainers in the world.
Her mother was a much better role model represented by her Moon in the 7th house trine to her Mercury... an open line of communications with her mother.
With 4 planets in the air element and 5 cardinal quality, if you include her Cancer rising, she has a Libra signature. Libra is the sign most often found in one way or another in celebrities charts. Libra represents balance and physical beauty.
Her Moon in Capricorn makes her hard working and its in the 7th house of one to one partnerships. This is the house where you gain attentions from the public as well as the 1st, 5th and 10th houses. She benefited from her marriage (7th house) with Sony Bono and then was able to make it on her own.
First Lady Melania Trump has Moon in Capricorn and this placement can make one emotionally conservative. Obviously that is not what a public figure wants but somehow they get cast into the public eye and have to learn the lesson of sharing themselves with so many.
Cher is a very kind person even thou she may personify herself as being tough. Her Cancer rising has made her sensitive to many issues such as gay rights, HIV support and movies such as mask (1985)where she becomes the loving mother who supports her son with love even thou his face looked much different than the average person. Cher is very caring, loving and compassionate to those who are considered out of the norm in society.
With Venus, North Node and Uranus all in Gemini in the 12th house, she is able to show many sides of herself through photographs and fashion. The 12th house is affiliated with being photogenic and Gemini loves variety. The combination of her Moon in the 7th house along with an active 12th house makes her available to the public (7th) through photography and fashion (12th).
Where does her sex appeal come from? A Pluto/Mars conjunction in the second house of money earned on a daily basis and self worth. Pluto sextile to Neptune in Libra offered her stage presence as an artist that would attract money into her life. A net worth of 360 million dollars. Not bad for someone who grew up with very little and the only direction in her life was she wanted to be famous but at an early age did not know what she would do to become famous.
I have found Pluto in Leo in so many famous people's charts. Pluto is exalted in Leo and gives great command of the stage and a good sense of business. Since Mars is conjunct her Pluto, both rule Scorpio, she has sexual magnetism that attracts powerful people into her life that have helped her become who she is today. Her sex appeal helps her attract abundance.
She has won awards in all categories. Grammy, Emmy, Academy and golden globe. Her role in “Moonstruck” in 1987 won her the academy award for Best Actress. She has sold over 100 million records and the only artist to have a #1 single on billboard charts in each decade from 1960 to 2010.
Not much info about her personal life. She has been married twice. Sony Bono from 1969 to 1979 and Greg Allman 1975 to 1979. Two children. Her Moon is the ruler of her chart (Cancer Rising) in the sign of Capricorn in the 7th house of marriage. Capricorns tend to get married more to their work than to a partner. This clearly shows in her chart.
Presently, a musical Broadway show on her life chronicling her six-decade career is set to be showcased at Chicago's Oriental theater from June 12th to July 15th, 2018 before it opens at Manhattans' Neil Simon Theater in the fall of 2018.
Her progressed chart shows Saturn hovering around the cusp of her 7th house of the public right around the time this new show opens in N.Y. Saturn can show the harvest of hard work she has done over the years and now its time for public appreciation from so many people she has touched over the years through her work.
With her progressed Sun in Leo at 7, almost 8, degrees, it will conjunct her natal Pluto a year from now at 9 degrees and more abundance will flow into her life from the attentions of her new musical.
I think this will be the final public boost for her as her Mercury by progression went retrograde at age 60 and will not station direct till age 82. Mercury in retrogration is more internal and a Broadway show would be perfect for her to add feedback and help the directors, producers and actors. She can sit back and become more famous and rich without lifting a finger. Perfect for Mercury retrograde in the progressed chart in the sign of Leo in the 2nd house of money and self worth. She will gain in material possessions from this also but should be careful before signing any financial agreements of anykind.
Cher is beautiful, compassionate, hard working, flexible, knows how to attract money, sexual/passionate, independently strong woman and muti-talented with great stage presence, great singing voice and great acting abilities.
