Jay-Z (born December 4, 1969) is an American rapper and business mogul. He is one of the most financially successful hip-hop artists and entrepreneurs in America. The Forbes article “Hip-Hop Cash Kings 2012” ranked him at the top, with earnings of approximately $38million in 2011. Jay Z co-owns The 40/40 Club and is the co-creator of the clothing line Rocawear. He is the former CEO of Def Jam Recordings, one of the three founders of Roc-A-Fella Records, and the founder of Roc Nation.
He is one of the world’s best-selling artists of all time, having sold more than 100 million records while receiving more than 20 Grammy Awards for his musical work, and numerous additional nominations. Several young artists have cited Jay Z as a role model, including Drake, Kendrick Lamar, and J. Cole.
Jay Z married American singer Beyoncé in 2008. The couple has one daughter, Blue Ivy Carter (born January 7, 2012). On June 13, 2017, Jay Z and Beyoncé announced that they had welcomed twin daughters, named Rumi and Sir Carter.
Jay-Z’s early music career was closely tied to rapper Notorious B.I.G. (See his full birth chart here). In 1996, he released his debut album, Reasonable Doubt, featuring production from both himself and his former mentor, DJ Premier. The album peaked at number 23 on the Billboard 200 and was generally favored by critics.
This put him in competition with other acclaimed East Coast rappers such as the Wu-Tang Clan. Jay Z later released his second studio album In My Lifetime, Vol. 1, which debuted at number 3 on the Billboard 200. In 1998, he performed “Can I Get A…” with rapper Amil and DJ Clue, who also produced the song. The single reached number-one on Hot Rap Tracks and sold 500,000 copies. Jay-Z’s third album Vol. 2… Hard Knock Life was released in 1998 and was certified five-times platinum by the RIAA. The album featured two number-one hits on the Billboard Hot 100, “Hard Knock Life (Ghetto Anthem)” and “Can I Get A…”.
In 1996, Jay Z launched his own record label, Roc-A-Fella Records, and released The Blueprint in 2001. The album became one of the most critically and commercially successful albums of the year, selling over two million copies in the United States. Jay-Z’s sixth studio album Kingdom Come was released in 2018 and debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart.
In 2008, he founded Roc Nation, a music management company. Jay Z co-founded the digital music service Tidal in 2015. He has reportedly invested around $70 million into the venture; he is a partial owner of the service and receives no payouts.
In June 2018, rapper Kanye West released his own album titled: Ye, with production primarily handled by West and numerous other record producers such as Mike Dean, FrancisGotHeat, and Che Pope. The album features guest appearances from singers such as Kid Cudi, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Jeremih, Ty Dolla $ign, and 070 Shake; as well as rappers such as Lil Wayne, Nas, Travis Scott, and Young Thug. West has cited Jay Z as one of his biggest musical influences, and called him his “big brother”.

Natal chart interpretation
Note: The following birth chart interpretation is for entertainment only and should not be viewed as a criticism or attack on the subject of the study. No offense is intended and no slight to character is meant.
SUN IN SAGITTARIUS
The Sun is in Sagittarius from approximately November 22 through December 21. Capricorn is the ruler. Key words are aspiration, love of freedom, exploration–key phrase is, “I see”. The arrow is the symbol of Sagittarius, the sign of honesty and straightforwardness. Sagittarians love freedom and liberty.
Llewellyn George in his book “A to Z Horoscope Maker and Delineator” (Llewellyn Publications, Thirty-sixth Printing, 1974) writes: “In Sagittarius the Sun gives a jovial, bright, hopeful, generous and charitable nature; self-reliant, active enterprising, frank, outspoken, honest, ambitious, persevering and not easily discouraged. Loves liberty, freedom and out-of-doors sports; dislikes a master and will not be driven. Generally has a strong will and is sincere, honorable, earnest, aspiring, energetic, and what he says goes right to the mark. Shows reverence for philosophy and science, has good calculation and foresight and is usually prophetic as to the outcome of movements or enterprises.”
“This gives lofty ideals and a noble aspiring disposition aiming to rise by raising others. It makes the person benevolent, philanthropic and therefore beloved among his associates. Jay Z is often the recipient of honors and appointments to positions of trust, and missions of a delicate nature, nor could a better selection be made, for such people are the souls of honor. This position will also bring success in religion, law and statesmanship for it gives an expansive mind fitted to grapple with the greater problems of life.” (Max Heindel, “The Message of the Stars”, Rosicrucians, 1927).
He is a positive thinker, energetic and naturally outgoing. Jay Z is a serious thinker, about the well-being of society as well as his own. He places his spiritual laws and ethics above personality–even to the point of overlooking the personal side of life sometimes. He should be aware of his tendency to be overly idealistic, and take advantage of his honest and generous nature so that he can dwell comfortably in the world with other mortals. On the other hand, he often can see into the future and his insights may border on prophecy.
In dealing with the real world, he may often jump to conclusions without taking all the factors into consideration. His honesty prevents the subtle approach, and his straightforwardness may cause him to be truthful to the point of pain–and he can be more than blunt to his enemies. However, Jay Z is very sensitive, and anxiety, when caused by remorse, can even throw him into a depression.
His expansive nature may take him to un-dreamed of adventures because of his desire to know, to experience, to try his wings, and to have excitement through exploration. He may travel far and fast, either geographically or in thought–or both. His creative urge is strong, and he likes to have people acknowledge his work and his creative achievements. Jay Z is a charming and agreeable companion, albeit highly independent.
He enjoys friends who are witty, intellectual and enigmatic, but he also needs freedom in any of his friendships and relationships. He would not appreciate a clinging vine or emotionally demanding spouse or partner. He will be most content with someone who shares his ideals, his sense of fun, and his zest for life. It will not be easy for him to find a spouse or partner who can allow him the idealism and the freedom he needs to pursue his many interests, and still give him the deep commitment he will want and demand.
He has big dreams and hopes for the future and they are likely to always be pursuing some distant goal. He has a great deal of faith and trust in life, and failures don’t crush his spirit. He always bounced back from disappointments, often with another bright dream or scheme. He has a playful attitude toward life and is philosophical about his mistakes. He likes to theorize and speculate, but he does have the ability to sense future trends, to see the big picture. However, attending to all of the details and practical requirements of implementing his theories could be bothersome to him.
It may be difficult for him to decide where to focus his attention and his efforts when it comes to choosing a profession or deciding on what goals he wishes to pursue. He may travel around and experiment with many different paths before he settles on a particular career. Or he may go from one project to the next–for once the challenge is gone, he could be very quick to move on.
Commitment, discipline, focus, and concentration are not always his strong points. He can be somewhat irresponsible and disinclined to take on the burdens and limitations of adult life. Delightful as these personality traits are, life is not always fun and games. He will need to learn to apply discipline, stability and some persistence to many of the serious and painful situations that life always seems to spring upon us.
People born with Pisces rising on the eastern horizon deal with life by seeing only the best in any situation. Neptune, the Planet of idealism, vision, and high inspiration, rules Pisces, and the natives may have dreams that have little to do with life as others see it. Pisces is a Water sign in the Mutable mode–emotional and adaptable. The symbol of the sign is two fishes swimming in opposite directions, indicating inability to take decisive action.
People see him as a gentle, sensitive person with a deep understanding of people and a very tolerant and nonjudgmental attitude towards life. He appears to wait, to watch, to feel and to know much, but to be somewhat passive and slow to act. Jay Z is emotional and adaptable. Jay Z is not an aggressive, forceful person, and he intensely dislikes conflict. In a noisy, competitive atmosphere he may appear withdrawn and detached. He will let things work themselves out in their own way rather than by directing or forcing his will upon them.
He seems to adopt a viewpoint of high expectations, and survives by seeing things from an overall perspective that appears naive to more factually oriented people. He can walk through the most difficult times with a clear view of the road ahead, and things just seem to work out for him. Use of confrontation and clear-cut decisions are not the way he handles situations. Since he usually DON’T know which direction to go, he waits–and wait–and wait–until, Lo!, the situation has taken its own direction and solved itself.
People see him as a dreamer. Jay Z is full of idealism and vision, and he may have dreams that have little to do with life as others see it. He puts on rose colored glasses, brightens the colors a bit, and no harsh glare of reality enters his vision unless he so chooses. Jay Z is likely to have an irresistible charm, gentle and kind, and may often be put upon a pedestal. People have difficulty resisting the temptation to go along with his concept of life, since it is so beautiful and child-like, personifying what everyone wants to believe.
This idealistic, visionary personality is great unless the world’s reality intrudes too cruelly. When this happens the crash can be catastrophic. Therefore, he needs to temper his vision with reality. Be extremely careful of alcohol and drugs. Moderation is the watchword here. He needs to learn to deal with reality in all situations, and not persist in seeing himself only through the rose-colored glasses.
He is super-sensitive to the feelings of others and a good listener. Though he seldom offers solutions, people always feel they were helped by him. Jay Z is emotional, but tends not to internalize the pain of others: rather, he remains empathetic and supportive.
People see him as soft and emotional. He can be stirred as strongly by fictional incidents as he can by real life situations, due to his unlimited imagination. He should do well in vocations which require vision–acting, writing, movies, drama, or TV. He has many of the intuitive qualities for spiritual leadership, though the traditional religions may not appeal to him.
Much as his style appeals to others, relationships are difficult for him, mainly because it is so easy to take advantage of him. He believes only the best of everyone, and will close his eyes to their faults. He attracts all kinds, and he needs to be very discriminative in personal relationships. He will have difficulty in letting go of any that don’t work out. It will be hard for anyone to live up to his expectations, and he probably is very jealous.
When he can temper his idealism with reality, life will be beautiful for him and all those around him. Her way of dealing with life would try the patience of a saint, but it works for him so well that Jay Z is likely to be a smashing success in whatever he attempts.

ARIES ON 2ND HOUSE
Mars, planet of action, rules Aries, and when this combination is found on the second house of money and worth, the mild, sensitive Pisces can become aggressive and resourceful. It can provide a high physical energy level, and a spirit of competition. Lack of challenge, lack of opportunity, and/or delays can cause frustration and aggravation. The keyword here is patience. Fall back upon the Pisces characteristic of waiting it out–but take care not to completely lose his motivation.
TAURUS ON 3RD HOUSE
The third house deals with the thinking mind, communications, study, travel, and writing. When Taurus, ruled by Venus, is on this house cusp, it indicates a sociable and charming manner, love of the arts, diplomacy, and negotiating skills. Jay Z is likely to be the peacemaker. He will probably love to study, to travel, and to meet new people–mailing postcards from every stop. He could be over-indulgent to loved ones. He may not be motivated to do physical activities in the isas of “chores” that need to be done. He should watch out for a tendency to keep the peace at any price, especially if it compromises his principles.
GEMINI ON 4TH HOUSE
Home life, domestic affairs, and the parent of the opposite sex are the fourth house concerns. When Gemini, ruled by Mercury, planet of intelligence, understanding and communications, is on the cusp, the home life tends to be a center of activity. The home can be both a base for thinking, communicating, learning, and business activities, and/or a place to retreat from these high mental activities.
CANCER ON 5TH HOUSE
Fifth house affairs include love–sex, children, entertainment, and speculation. Cancer, ruled by the Moon, brings strong emotions to bear upon these fifth house affairs. Feelings can run deep, intuition can be strong, and nurturing and mother instincts are sure to be a part of the natural expression. Children are important to him, both physical children, as well as children of the mind. They are also likely to display emotional characteristics. Expression of emotions is vital to emotional growth, and writing could be one good method of expression.
CANCER ON 6TH HOUSE
Cancer is ruled by the Moon. When found in the sixth house of work, service, and health the influences they provide will all have an emotional overtone. He will be caring and sincere in all approaches to work and service, but he could also be prone to emotional disorders and burnout. He may need to watch out for tendencies to hypochondria.
VIRGO ON 7TH HOUSE
Mercury also rules Virgo, the sign of service, detail, and analysis. With Virgo on the seventh house of the public, partner, and mate, it is said that opposites attract. The seventh house is opposite the Ascendant, and there could be a tendency to seek out what is lacking in the personality through seventh house partnerships. With Pisces Rising, the target could be an intellectual type. He will approach the affairs of this house with attention to detail and order.
LIBRA ON 8TH HOUSE
Venus, planet of love, art, and talent rules Libra. When in the eighth house of death, taxes, inheritance and legal affairs there will be a desire to deal with all these affairs in a fair, sensitive manner. The approach will be from a standpoint of responsibility and justice. He may tend to be a little over idealistic in his expectations of others.
SCORPIO ON 9TH HOUSE
The strong, sensitive sign of Scorpio is ruled by Pluto, the planet of hidden matters, intense feelings, and regeneration. The ninth house deals with philosophy, religion, higher mind, travel, and education. The affairs of the ninth house can be blown out of proportion with the influences of Pluto-Scorpio combinations. These will be approached with extreme intensity and he may need to learn how to lighten up.
SAGITTARIUS ON 10TH HOUSE
The tenth house deals with the career, honor, esteem, profession and recognition. Sagittarius, sign of idealism, achievement, and new thoughts and opinions, is ruled by Jupiter, planet of expansion, “luck”, enthusiasm, and wealth of spirit. With this sign on the tenth house, he will find it almost impossible to fail in his chosen career. Honors and recognition are likely to pour in from achievements related to his profession. Jay Z is enthusiastic, optimistic, and relishes challenges and new goals. This is all likely to be enhanced by a sense of spirituality.
CAPRICORN IN 11TH HOUSE
Capricorn, sign of conservatism, ambition, and organization, is ruled by Saturn, planet of discipline and limitations. When this sign is found on the cusp of the eleventh house, friends could be hard to come by. They could either be negative and restrictive, or long-lasting, supportive, and loyal. There will be very little in-between. He may be hesitant in making friends, and if Jay Z is the least bit insecure, he could attract friends who are the same way. However (and hopefully), he will be positive, selective, and open in his attitude toward others, in which case he will attract friends who will always be dependable and supportive.
CAPRICORN ON 12TH HOUSE
Saturn, planet of order and discipline, rules Capricorn. With this sign on the twelfth house of limitations and the subconscious, the result can cause subconscious fears and add to the limitations. However, if he can bring forth the subconscious to the conscious, this can be an extremely powerful asset. It would certainly bolster his self-confidence if he could discipline and “order” his intuition and subconscious thoughts!
PLANETARY SIGN AND HOUSE POSITIONS
The following planetary sign and house positions are determined by Jay-Z’s birth data. There are 384 variations of these positions, as well as many other variables, but only 25 of them apply to each individual. The possibility of another person having the same combination of positions is practically non-existent.
The Sun and the Moon are known as the “Lights” and are not planets in the technical sense of the word. However, they are the most visible and perhaps more influential in affecting man’s awareness than all of the other heavenly bodies put together. The blend of the Sun-Moon influences, from the signs they are in, and whether they are in aspect or not, are extremely significant to the personality profile of the new life. The relationship of the Sun and Moon to each other by their position, sign, and aspect and their relationship to the Ascendant can sometimes provide us with an extremely accurate mini-interpretation of the chart. The interpretation of his Sun-Moon combination is printed next. Study it carefully–as well as the next three Sun and Moon sign delineations.
SAGITTARIUS SUN AND LIBRA MOON
These two signs are sextile each other. Social activities will provide outlets for expansive ideas. He could have a wanderlust and a craving for new experiences. He has a caring and generous disposition, which can make him vulnerable to being “taken in”. Being charitable and helpful can meet his personal ideals perfectly, but he need to develop discrimination in dispensation of his benevolence. Jay Z is likely to be happiest in one of the helping professions. This is a good combination for a career in the law, but he will need to be careful not to “lay down the law” to others. Practice tuning into the real needs of others. This combination breeds a permanency of purpose and does not encourage tendencies for change.
SUN IN THE NINTH HOUSE
The Sun in the houses represents the departments of life most strongly affected by the individual will and power potential. Ninth house position indicates a dynamic interest in spiritual and religious pursuits, especially in realms of higher education, religion, law, and philosophy. He has a highly intuitive mind, and may have flashes of inspiration that can help him to solve problems. He could have visions of the future that border on prophecy. Jay Z is likely to be interested in distant places and their culture, art forms, and traditions. He will probably have strong moral convictions by which he guides his life. His beliefs may not be traditional, and he needs to be extremely careful to avoid any tendency to impose his religious and moral views upon others.
MOON IN LIBRA
In mythology, the Moon is always female–as the Sun is always male. In most ancient religions and cults, the Moon represents the female force which reflects the male force of the Sun. In astrology, “she” bestows her indiscriminative influences upon both male and female alike, though each sex might respond to the influences in different ways. The Moon in the signs indicates the emotional responses to life’s situations. It determines how they are likely to react to external influences and to the actions of others.
In Libra, it indicates a strong sensitivity to the attitudes and reactions of others, especially marriage partners and close working partners. He dislikes vulgarity, and there is a charm, grace, and elegance about his personal appearance and mannerisms. Jay Z is idealistic about what is fair and just and can get extremely emotional when conditions appear otherwise.
He is probably a domestic person: he likes a home life, and the home can become a “Home-base” for the rest of his activities. His tastes are aesthetic and his home will be attractive if not downright elegant.
He likes people and constantly makes new friends. He will not abide prejudice and enjoy companionship with people who share those traits with him. Intimate relationships are important to him, and he will be seeking emotional balance from them. He may have difficulty ending relationships which are not good for him, but if they don’t work, he will need to learn how to let them go. Inharmonious relationships can actually have an adverse effect upon his health, for he needs the approval of others.
His ambitions may wax and wane from hot to cold. Jay Z is a good communicator and mediator. Human services could be his field. Many judges have Libra strongly placed in their Natal chart. He may need to be careful about becoming a little fanatic about what is fair and just.
He is likely to be courteous, gracious, and kind to everyone–and he wants the same from them. He can excel in public relations, and his home is likely to be the gathering place for social activities. He needs to watch for excessive dependence upon others for emotional security.
MOON IN THE SEVENTH HOUSE
The Moon in the houses indicates the areas of daily activity through which his feelings are manifested, and gives clues to the type of activity on the domestic scene. In this House, it indicates a tendency to get married for emotional and domestic security. His family can influence his marriage, since Jay Z is so emotionally sensitive to others. He seeks emotional fulfillment through relationships, and could look for a mother or father image in his marriage partner. His dealings with the public are likely to be business related. He needs to practice self-confidence and to apply his emotional sensitivity to others in positive ways.
MERCURY IN SAGITTARIUS
Mercury in the signs gives clues to the kinds of concerns that occupy his mind, and reveals his psychological approach to making decisions and conveying his ideas to others. In this sign, it influences his mind to focus on attitudes behind the facts. This kind of approach can give he great insight into social motivation and its subsequent events. He will be much concerned with education, especially in the fields of religion, philosophy, and law. Jay Z is direct in speech and will say exactly what he thinks. Since his ideas are likely to be near the traditional, he will be respected for his directness. He needs to keep aware that facts are not always attitudes, and not confuse the two or ignore the facts.
MERCURY IN THE TENTH HOUSE
Mercury in the houses deals with the practical affairs that occupy his mind, and shows what areas of activity will be influenced by his thoughts and communications. In the tenth house it indicates Jay Z is likely to pursue education for reasons of professional ambition. Jay Z is likely to have a good organizational ability and the capacity to plan for the future. His career is not likely to be accidental. Jay Z is able to communicate with people of power and prestige, and with the public, so that politics would be natural for him. Whatever his occupation, it will involve communications media. Ambition is the keyword in this position, but beware that it could take precedence over principles.
VENUS IN SAGITTARIUS
Venus in the signs indicates how he expresses his emotions in personal relationships, and his attitudes toward money, personal possessions, creature comforts, and social and aesthetic values. When it is in Sagittarius, his emotions and responses are idealistic and spiritually oriented. He likes religious ceremonies and pageantry. He likes to be objective and unemotional in personal relationships, sticking to the old values as defined by tradition and accepted religious practices. He needs to refrain from pushing his practices on others, and to seek spiritual guidance for what is right for him.
VENUS IN THE NINTH HOUSE
Venus in the houses indicates how he expresses himself romantically, artistically and socially in the various areas of his life. Ninth house position gives him a love of art, religion, and philosophy. He will love to travel and will be especially receptive to people of other cultures. He could marry someone from a foreign country, and much happiness can come from in-laws’ relationships. He could become a scholar in foreign cultures.
MARS IN AQUARIUS
Mars in the signs provides information about his characteristic modes of action and type of ambition. Mars is the action planet and in the sign Aquarius, his actions may be inspired by a superior level of intelligence. He will demand the freedom to do things in his own way. His strong desire for independence may cause him to pursue unusual or unorthodox courses of action. He will learn most from his own mistakes, but he does need to learn to practice teamwork and cooperation with others.
MARS IN THE TWELFTH HOUSE
Mars in the houses indicate the departments of life in which he expresses his actions and desires. It shows where he needs to exert energy and initiative in order to produce results. In the twelfth house, it indicates desires and actions that are strongly influenced by the unconscious mind. He may wish to carry on work and other activities in secret or in seclusion. He tend to be secretive about his desires and purposes, and may have secret sexual involvements, since Mars rules sexual energies. He needs to practice communications with his subconscious and open these secret influences to the light of his conscious mind and understanding. Spiritual guidance is indicated.
JUPITER IN LIBRA
Jupiter in the signs gives information concerning his ethical, religious, and philosophic standards and beliefs; and how he may express those interests. In the sign Libra it indicates a strong concern with justice and the moral principle in marriage, partnership, and close personal relationships. Jay Z is likely to look for a partner whose views in these areas correspond with hiss, and will feel a need for a solid domestic base for the freedom he needs to express his own beliefs and to influence improvements in the social order. He may need to watch for a tendency to make moral judgments and decisions for others. He may also see a tendency of others to show jealousy toward him, especially if he gets involved in too many personal relationships at once.
JUPITER IN THE EIGHTH HOUSE
Jupiter in the houses indicates the departments of life and types of activity through which he expresses his religious, philosophical, and educational ideas. In the eight houses, good fortune could come through inheritance, insurance, or joint finances. He may be attracted to such businesses as funeral homes, tax accounting, and corporate fund-raising. There will be a strong interest in life after death. He is likely to become interested in spiritualism, and also to possess telepathic powers.
SATURN IN TAURUS
Saturn in the signs indicates the areas in which he must accept responsibility and the ways in which he must practice discipline and develop maturity. When found in Taurus, he will need discipline and hard work to acquire material possessions. He will have a strong need for financial and emotional security. Jay Z is thoughtful, kind, and quiet, but sometimes quick-tempered, resentful, and stubborn. Jay Z is frugal and may manage business affairs well. Watch out for tendencies to miserliness and excessive materialism.
SATURN IN THE SECOND HOUSE
Saturn in the houses indicates the areas of life in which we must learn to act with discipline and to express practical ambition through maturity. In the second house it means ambition and hard work to acquire money, material possessions, and the status that goes with them. There is a tendency to frugality, which helps him get his money’s worth in most transactions. Jay Z is likely to have anxiety regarding finances and a strong urge to save for advanced age. There is a possibility of inheritance with Saturn in this house, or material gain through his father, employer, or people in positions of power. He needs to watch for selfishness and possessiveness of material things.
URANUS IN LIBRA
Uranus in the signs indicates the ways in which he deals with his urge for freedom and individuality. It indicates the motivations behind his wishes, hopes, and goals–especially mind goals. It may also show the type of friends he seeks and the kinds of activities of the groups he belongs to. In Libra, it affects marriage, partnerships, and social conduct. Jay Z is likely to have keen insights into all kinds of human relationships, and telepathic understanding of other people’s motivations. He may have new concepts of justice and seek to change and modernize existing legal codes. Jay Z is likely to value human relationships more highly than legal contracts. He will need freedom in marriage, which could cause difficulty in marital relationships. The message here is to consider others when attempting to change the status quo.
URANUS IN THE SEVENTH HOUSE
The house position of Uranus indicates the type of activity through which he expresses his urge toward individuality and freedom. In seven, this applies to the desire for freedom in marriage, relationships, and partnerships. His extreme need for independence could stand in the way of long commitments. Relationships range from extremely close friends to impersonal, superficial acquaintances subject to rapid turnover. The marriage partner can be either unusually brilliant or eccentric, and at times he may resent his spouse, whichever the extreme. He needs to learn to control his tendencies toward sudden changes in mood, opinion, and attitude, which can be caused from his feelings of disorientation. Avoid alcohol and other drugs.
NEPTUNE IN SCORPIO
Neptune in the signs manifests more historical and generational influences than personal. It indicates the kind of cultural expression shown by the imaginative and creative faculties of mankind over a given period of time. His personal responses to Neptune in Scorpio are likely to be in sexual areas and psychological areas of escape. Drug abuse is strongly indicated, and spiritual regeneration will be forced upon him.
NEPTUNE IN THE NINTH HOUSE
Neptune in the houses indicates how he expresses his mystical potential, and may reveal some of the karma produced by his past actions. Since the ninth house focuses on religion, the influences of Neptune are very strong here. Positive spirituality can be powerful and prophetic vision is possible. The interest will surely be in the mystical forms of religion, and much seeking through study, prayer, and meditation may be necessary for him to find what is right for him. Beware of cultism and negative influences. Take care to distinguish the real spiritual teachers from the false, and do not fall victim to his own spiritual pride. Jay Z is especially vulnerable to the influences of alcohol and other drugs.
PLUTO IN VIRGO
Pluto in the signs is also historical and generational, but on the personal level it indicates permanent change. In Virgo it deals with work, health, and practical application of technology. The areas of sex, drugs, and health are indicated as most likely areas for permanent change in his life.
PLUTO IN THE SEVENTH HOUSE
The house position of Pluto shows in which departments of life he needs to exercise conscious creative willpower to regenerate himself and (possibly) his surroundings. In the seventh house, it indicates people whose lives are drastically altered by marriage, partnerships, and dealings with others. Jay Z is likely to attract a partner who is strong-willed and domineering and against whom Jay Z is likely to rebel. He may have deep insight into the thoughts of others, and need to seek spiritual guidance for appropriate uses of this gift. He needs to learn a balance between responsibility and initiative.

Manifest A real relationship with this love ritual!
Following are the interpretations of the planetary aspects to each other. Aspects are angular relationships between two or more planets that have been found to modify the influences bestowed. Significant angles are: Conjunction (same degree), Sextile (60 degrees), Square (90 degrees), Trine (120 degrees), and Opposition (180 degrees). Don’t worry that some of these individual interpretations seem to conflict. Remember–we look at the whole person, and the separate parts can modify, reinforce, or nullify each other.
SUN CONJUNCT THE MIDHEAVEN
This aspect gives him the potential for tremendous influence through his career, profession, and reputation. Ambition will be high and success will be important. Personal honor will certainly be a factor in career choices, which are likely to be in the public eye, such as teaching, politics, etc.
SUN SQUARE THE NORTH NODE
This square can inhibit his individual expression because of larger events in his society and his feeling out of phase with the times. It could especially affect his social and romantic life. The key here is a watchful and waiting attitude without force and impulsiveness.
SUN SEXTILE THE MOON
This aspect supports a harmonious flow of communication among the unconscious mind, the memory, and the conscious will. This harmony of emotions and will makes self-expression possible without internal conflicts. His health and vitality can be strengthened by this sextile. It is favorable for harmony in marriage and friendships, for popularity, and for good public relations. Jay Z is likely to be a good parent, and have close ties of love and friendship with his family and his spouse’s family.
SUN SEXTILE URANUS
This sextile influences intuition and originality. His strong willpower and perception will make it possible for him to do many things which are impossible to others. The aspect enhances leadership through his sense of the dramatic and his enthusiasm. It indicates interest in the occult, especially Astrology.
MOON CONJUNCT URANUS
This aspect is likely to influence him to seek the strange and the unusual. It indicates intuition, imagination, but with possibly erratic emotional impulses. Jay Z is prone to sudden and drastic changes of mood, and may often behave in an impulsive and unusual manner. He craves excitement and novelty. Jay Z is likely to have unusual creative ability and resourcefulness, and the key to this aspect is the positive application of these gifts. Cultivate patience through meditation and spiritual guidance.
MOON SEXTILE THE MIDHEAVEN
