Mick James Hucknall “Simply Red” was born June 6, 1960 around 6:30AM, Manchester England.
His Sun and Venus conjunction in Gemini in the 12th house, normally ruled by Pisces, gives him talent in writing, photography, music, and attentions from the public. But the 12th house wants privacy and rest. Gemini can have a good sense of humor and wonderful conversationalist. The Gemini energy draws him out of his shell.
His mother left when he was 3 years old. This is indicated by the Moon being in its fall in Scorpio. The Moon represents his mother and the Moon is square to his natal Pluto showing he was deeply hurt by this situation. Very karmic.
The Moon is square also to Chiron which opposes Pluto, and this forms a T-square showing a lifetime of working to forgive his mother for not being there for him. I pray he knows how loved he is by his audience and that many more people have tuff karma surrounding their parents as well. You are not alone.
His father was a simple barber but helped him to have confidence as his Sun is sextile to Mars and Uranus. The father played a unique role (Uranus) to help give him confidence (Mars) but the square from the Sun to Mick’s North Node says his father was not always in agreement with his vocational choices.
Mick got his first break in 1984 with the hit “Holding Back The Years”. He had his Progressed Sun in Cancer conjunct his rising sign of Cancer and the song is about his past relationship with his mother which hurt him deeply.
His voice is perfection. When he starts to sing the whole universe is listening. His true mother becomes the “Goddess”. His audience gives him all the attention he did not get from his mother and being an only child.
Mick and I have Cancer rising at 10 degrees. Cancer rising men are extremely sensitive to their environment. I cannot imagine not having my mother. But this man has turned his life into a fortune with a net worth of 60 million. Now that is admirable considering his Moon in Scorpio would give him lots of reasons to quit on life.
Considering his Sun and Venus in a water house, his Mercury conjunct his rising in Cancer another water sign and his Moon in Scorpio another water sign, we have deep sensitivity to life, and this comes out in his music. His romantic side as well as his sensitivity plays out in his music.
Gemini can be the entertainer and with Venus close to his Sun, he enjoys having fun on stage. You can tell when he gets grooving that he is in heaven.
His grand trine in water signs gives him a relaxed persona as Mercury in Cancer, Chiron in Pisces conjunct his MC and Neptune in Scorpio personifies him as a giver of peace and healing. Great devotion and a believer in a higher unconditional aspect to love. Songs like “Stars” and “For Your Babies” brings out the depth and gentleness of divine love.
Then there is Mars in Aries adding passion to some of his romantic songs like “Thrill Me” or “It’s only Love” doing its thing baby.
He got married in 2010 to Gabriella Wesberry and adopted her daughter Romy True. His love for children shows with Venus as the ruler of his 5th house conjunct the Sun, the natural ruler of the 5th house representing children, love affairs, gambling, and an interest in politics.
With Neptune in Scorpio in the 5th house in a grand trine, he finds healing to his past hurts, Moon square Pluto opposing Chiron, through children and his music.
He needs to watch his health by getting out in the Sun for 10 minutes a day. It is the albino who gets several health issues when they avoid the Sun. Especially now with Covid, everyone needs some time out in the Sun even if it is a 20-minute walk around the block.
And ALL the celebrities cannot get a booking at any venue so depression can set in. The Sun is the cure for depression and for Vitamin D production.
It is the Yod (Finger of God) that causes stress or a huge major break in life when planets conjunct into the eye of the Yod or activating a sextile (Opportunity).
Saturn is at the center of the Yod in his 7th house of partnerships showing a time when his personal life was active. Eventually he has settled down. Saturn in the 7th can attract a marriage partner that is more mature and serious but not always older. His wife is younger.
The Yod offered him a chance to be famous as it does in anyone’s chart. It offers an opportunity to be in the right place at the right time. His singing voice is enough to attract an audience and once it was heard by the right person, he was off to a wonderful career in the music industry.
The conjunction between the Sun and Venus in the communicative sign of Gemini and Mercury conjunct his rising in Cancer is powerful for a message in songs that allows healing and inspiration. A compassionate man who knows what it is like to struggle in life with “Money’s Too Tight To Mention” or “If You Don’t Know Me By Now”.
The band “Simply Red” has sold over 50 million albums.
