Nicholas de Vore’s Encyclopedia of Astrology gives the Degree of 17 Scorpio as the degree of music. There are a few other degrees also given to music, this particular one sits on my MC along with a conjunction to Neptune and Pallas. I have played instruments and had received a scholarship to the University of North Dakota to play cello. I lived at concerts, Rock, New Wave 80’s, Classical. I do get lost in day dreams when I hear a melody…. anyone remember the Monster in Mel Brook’s Young Frankstien? I couldn’t find a link, but did find the out take with Mel Brooks playing the violin, playing an old Transylvanian Lullaby, the music that surges through the soul of the Frankenstiens and their monsters. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nalk5fIK-VI&feature=related
I also have music that moves me… Debussy’s Clair de Lune can plunge me into instant depths of despair. John Fogerty’s “Centerfield” can be playing and I am going to have a great day striving for my best and enjoying it. I think I would enjoy my life better with a sound track… maybe. Imagine tinny player piano music going everytime chaos reigns (hourly in this present incarnation).
There have been many Astrological friendly music out there over the years. I made a point of assigning CCR’s “Bad Moon Rising” as the ring tone for Ryoin. I sometimes don’t answer so I can hear the song play. Oops, sorry. I will leave my signature on forums with quotes from music lyrics. Pink Floyd is the biggest of contributors to that list, but there are many.
There should be many, with songs written such as The Great Gig in the Sky (okay it’s an instrumental), Astronomy Domine, Interstellar Overdrive, Fat Old Sun and others, there is a large cache to work from.
“And everything under the Sun is in tune, but the Sun is eclipsed by the Moon.”
“Can’t keep my eyes from the circling skies
Tongue-tied and twisted just an earth-bound misfit, I ”
I like using SoundGarden’s
“using signals, using words can be like
seeing a deep sea diver who is swimming with a raincoat”
Ha you thought I was going to quote Black Hole Sun…. no real lyrics though.
There are so many songs out there…. we should start a list!!! From Disney’s When you wish upon a star To the rock opera HAIR and the Age of Aquarius Moby’s We are all made of Stars
, from all the Moonlight moments and the Dancing beneath the Sar ones. Remember Kenny Loggin’s singing, “Pisces, Virgo rising is a very good sign” and The 5th Dimensions, Let the Sun Shine and now as Astrologers those words have new meanings, but also we kinda snicker at the rate of occurence that this happens in the Age of Aquarius lyrics, and how non Earth Shattering it is…
When the moon is in the Seventh House
And Jupiter aligns with Mars
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars
This is the dawning of the age of Aquarius
The age of Aquarius
Harmony and understanding
Sympathy and trust abounding
No more falsehoods or derisions
Golden living dreams of visions
Mystic crystal revalation
And the mind’s true liberation
Okay, Okay, at least they got the jist of Aquarius right.
