Happy birthday Janis Joplin January 19

Janis Joplin has become a legend, not just for her music, but for her astonishing person style. She felt so different, yet craved success in the straight world.  Born during the period of Saturn Uranus conjunction, they both rule Aquarius.  Janis has Venus, Mercury and Ascendant in Aquarius. Sun in Capricorn with Mars in the Capricorn house. Some think of her as a laid back hippie, but at the time she was astonishing in her determination to succeed, to control the band and make them all stars. Much has been written about her control issues, as seen here with Mercury opposition Pluto. Seems like you can hear that fixed opposition in her voice, can't you? Notice also that her Sun and Chiron (the wounded healer) are at the same degree, forming an exact inconjunct. Again, we can hear it in her voice, the unrelenting pain.  Her Sun is trine Neptune and in Neptune's house, so alcohol and drugs were offered and gratefully accepted to ease the pain.
