Happy Birthday Dolly Parton January 19

A few days ago I posted about Dolly Parton and all of the cardinal energy in her chart. Yesterday I found her birth time at Astro.com,  in the AstroDataBank section. Virgo rising with Moon conjunct. Ya think that explains all the plastic surgery? A wee bit picky eh, Dolly? Yet it is still all the cardinal energy that explains her amazing life, taking risks, changing all the rules, blazing paths that have enabled untold numbers of people to succeed. Mars conjunct Saturn within minutes of exact. She sets such high standards, you would think we would have heard of her being a terribly hard person to work with or for. Venus conjunct Sun surely helps there, smoothing the sharp edges of Capricorn, drawing people to her, people who want to help her, want to see her, want to help her manifest all of her huge dreams. So many performers have Jupiter aspects to Sun or Venus - she has both. And Jupiter is conjunct Chiron, the wounded healer. Her song about the Coat of Many Colors comes to mind. Being poor in the mountains of Tennessee before there was WalMart meant wearing hand me downs, and that song tells the story like no one else ever has. She wrote "I Will Always Love You", and recorded it. Elvis loved it, but the Colonel wanted way too much money, so Dolly didn't allow him to record it. She said she cried for days over that decision, surely doubting herself. Years later Whitney Houston made it a mega hit when she sang it in the movie The Bodyguard. It seems unlikely they would have chosen it for the movie if Elvis had recorded it earlier. Don't you just love stories like that? She stuck to her guns time after time, and succeeded doing it her way. Gee, that sounds like a good song, too. ;>)
