Biography : Notorious B.I.G
Notorious B.I.G. was born in Brooklyn, New York, on May 21, 1972, to Jamaican immigrant parents. He was a hip-hop artist who was known for his signature songs “Juicy” and “Big Poppa”. His debut album, Ready to Die (1994), was met with widespread critical acclaim and helped to make him one of the most prominent figures in East Coast hip hop at a time when the West Coast hip hop scene was dominating hip hop music. The following year, he led his protégé group Junior M.A.F.I.A., which included Lil’ Kim, to chart success.
During 1996, while recording his second album, Wallace became involved in the escalating East Coast–West Coast hip hop feud. Following Tupac Shakur’s death in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas in September 1996, (attributed to criminal elements orbiting the Bad Boy circle) connected Wallace to Shakur’s murder.
On March 9, 1997, six months after Shakur’s death, Wallace was murdered in a drive-by shooting while visiting Los Angeles. The assailants were never found.
Wallace’s second album Life After Death, a double album, was released two weeks later. It reached number one on the Billboard 200 and eventually achieved diamond certification in the United States. Notorious B.I.G remains to this day one of the most celebrated hip-hop artists and rappers, influencing many artists from Jay-Z to Kanye West.

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. As a fan, I have chosen to write this in the present rather than past tense.
SUN ON TAURUS-GEMINI CUSP
He was born at a time when the Sun was about to move from one sign into the next–or had just done so. The astrological term for this is that he was “born on the cusp”, or that he was a “Cusp Baby”. The sign that the Sun was actually in at the time of his birth will always be his true Sun-sign, and its imprint upon his personality is usually the more dominant.
However, planetary influences do not change immediately like turning one light off and another one on. The transition is more gradual, as the influences of the sign the Sun is leaving diminish while the influences of the new sign increase. We call that period of time the “Orb of influence” and for the cusp interpretation of the Sun-sign change, we use the span within the last three degrees of the sign which the Sun is leaving and the first three degrees of the sign it is moving into. The Sun moves through the signs at approximately one degree per day, so the total transition period we use is approximately six days.
The easiest way to interpret the Sun on the “cusp” would perhaps be to consolidate and intermix indiscriminately all the influences of both signs and print out a conglomerate of “one fits all”. Since this IS a transition period, such an interpretation would not fit everyone, and would create the risk of not portraying his true personality or individuality. Consequently, he will need to use some self analysis in order to get the best of this section. We will print the dominant influences of both Sun-signs: first the sign the Sun is leaving and next the sign it is entering into. Remember, as the Sun moves further into the emerging sign, the stronger Notorious B.I.G. is likely to recognize that Sun-sign’s imprint upon his personality.
With his Sun in Taurus, Notorious B.I.G. is probably very efficient in practical matters, and his spiritual truth comes from working with the practical aspects of life. Notorious B.I.G. is fond of the good things of life and focuses much of his attention on material acquisitions. Notorious B.I.G. loves comfort, satisfaction and pleasure. Whatever fulfills these needs will have great value to him. Notorious B.I.G. will make every effort to get it, and once he does, he never wants to let it go. Notorious B.I.G. likes money–not so much for its own sake, but so that he can enjoy the things it will buy. Notorious B.I.G. appreciates beautiful things, especially those which appeal to the sense of touch. Notorious B.I.G. is fond of good clothing and can be genuinely impressed by the wardrobes of others.
He seeks security, both emotional and material. Notorious B.I.G. may resist involvement in a relationship for fear of getting hurt, nevertheless there is likely to always be a significant other in his life. Notorious B.I.G. can be very jealous as a result of his deep inner need for mental and emotional security. Notorious B.I.G. is probably not aware of his inner motives, as self-analysis is usually not that important to him. Notorious B.I.G. has a strong sense of loyalty and may often burden himself with the griefs and problems of his friends. Notorious B.I.G. is a steadfast and patient friend, capable of tremendous devotion and dedication.
He is endowed with strong willpower and is capable of making plans years in advance and successfully implementing them. Notorious B.I.G. is likely to be successful in his efforts. Notorious B.I.G. has his own way of doing things, and if others want things to go smoothly, it is wise for them not to interfere with him or attempt to make him over. The ability to follow through and stick with things is one of his greatest assets. Once his course is set, he pursues it tenaciously until it is completed, stubbornly resisting any attempts to sway him from his purpose. However, he may have to learn to expect less than absolute perfection in the end results, and that reality may not always shape up to his exacting demands.
He has a very practical nature and wants to see concrete, tangible results for his efforts. Notorious B.I.G. is not one for spinning wild dreams that are unlikely to come true. Most of his “wild dreams” have to do with material achievements, well-being, and security, for he has a great love of the physical world and he wants to experience and enjoy it to the fullest. Though he will work long and persistently, he also has a strong, sensual, comfort-loving side, and he wants to enjoy what he has worked for. In fact, he can be a little lazy at times and have a tendency to overindulge in good food and other earthly pleasures. Notorious B.I.G. also loves the beauty of the natural world and probably prefers a serene country setting to a more urban lifestyle.
At heart his needs are simple and Notorious B.I.G. is easy to please. Notorious B.I.G. has a strong desire for security and peace, and will rarely make changes unless Notorious B.I.G. is forced to do so. Notorious B.I.G. is not very demanding emotionally, though he does crave lots of physical closeness and affection. Because of his faithfulness and gentle strength, others often depend upon him for support. Though he hates upheaval and sudden changes, he usually maintains his poise and equanimity. Notorious B.I.G. also has an innate sense of harmonizing with nature, allowing things to grow and unfold in their own time. Notorious B.I.G. has the patience to nurture something into being–be it a garden, a child, or some creative project. Notorious B.I.G. makes an excellent mother or father, especially if he follows his instincts more often than those of the “experts”.
Taureans are often referred to as being “bull-headed” or stubborn. If he recognizes this personality trait in himself, he needs to learn to be more flexible and less rigid. This characteristic could also cause him to find himself reluctant to risk changes from what he feels is his only safe, predictable routine. Open his mind to new ideas, expand upon his imagination, broaden his horizons and risk some speculations. New just MIGHT be better.
With the Sun in Gemini, Notorious B.I.G. is a communicator (I did NOT say “chatterbox!”), and speech is especially important to him. Notorious B.I.G. has a need to identify and classify, for his mind jumps from one thing to another and words are anchoring safety devices which help keep him on track. Notorious B.I.G. is thirsty for knowledge and has a highly developed learning capacity. His inventive imagination created a need for education from the time he was born, and could qualify him for professions in writing, research, and criticism. (He can be very good at criticism, however he tends to be charming, interesting and interesting.)
There is a dual quality to the Gemini personality. Variety is the spice of life for him, and Notorious B.I.G. is happiest when he has more than one dominant interest. Notorious B.I.G. enjoys his hands being busy, which they are very capable of doing on their own while his mind and attention can jump around to many things at the same time. Notorious B.I.G. has to work at maintaining calmness of mind and body and the best discipline to achieve this might well begin by trying to keep his hands and feet still–and to eat slowly. It’s no use suggesting that he think slowly, for Notorious B.I.G. is a Gemini.
He is, in many ways, an eternal child. His mind is bright, alert, curious, flexible, playful, and always eager for new experiences. His attention span can be quite brief. Notorious B.I.G. grasps ideas quickly and once his initial curiosity has been satisfied, he wants to go on to something else. Notorious B.I.G. craves frequent change, and meeting new situations and new people.
He also has a rather light and mischievous sense of humor, and often does not take anything too seriously. Though he craves emotional involvement it is hard for him to achieve it, for Notorious B.I.G. is frequently unwilling to commit himself to anything, to take responsibility, or to limit his personal freedom.
He may live in his head a great deal (reading, observing, thinking, spinning ideas around) and he needs mental stimulation every bit as much as he needs food and drink. In fact, if he had to choose between a good book or movie and a good lunch, he would very likely choose one of the former.
He may enjoy great popularity because of his witty conversation, mental agility, sociability, courtesy, and intuition. However, Notorious B.I.G. is ever a nonconformist. Notorious B.I.G. needs to maintain his separateness–he hates any kind of bondage, rebel against the status quo, resist authority, and never yield his individuality to one person or one place. Notorious B.I.G. needs to work at realizing his relationship to humanity’s common lot, and that cooperation is necessary to self-fulfillment. Notorious B.I.G. has the potential to overcome deficiencies and negative tendencies and to reach high objectives in life.
Leo is the royal sign, the Ascendant of “kingship” and “queenship”. The symbol is the lion, the king of beasts. Leo is ruled by the Sun, the source of heat, energy, and light. It projects powerful influences into the lives of those born when Leo is rising over the eastern horizon. They may sparkle brilliantly when the Sun is shining and appear subdued when it is hiding. Leo is a Fire sign in the fixed mode, bestowing a fiery personality influenced by determination and stability.
He appears to others to be dramatic, regal in bearing, and certainly in control of the situation. Leadership seems easy for him and he appears to exude an air of strength, dominance and individuality. It is usually easy for others to recognize him by the abundance of hair framing his face in profusion or swept back like a lion’s mane. In addition, the dramatic combinations in color and clothing of his royal attire will give his personality away every time. Notorious B.I.G. may appear to sparkle brilliantly when the Sun is shining and seem subdued when it is hiding. Others see his personality as strongly influenced by determination and stability.
To others, he may look and act ferocious and need to be at the head of the pack, but underneath Notorious B.I.G. is a pussycat who likes to have his fur stroked. However, his enthusiasm and energies ARE high, and he may be impatient with those around him who are less inspired and slower than him. Notorious B.I.G. may assume the leadership role subtly and without any sense of abdication on the part of others–that’s just the way things are. Notorious B.I.G. also needs to excel in what he does, and anytime he feels failure, Notorious B.I.G. is wounded more deeply than he wants others to know. When this happens, he will go into hiding, lick his wounds in private, and restore his sense of self-worth in his own way and his own time.
He admires others who are strong individuals like himself. When he befriends someone, Notorious B.I.G. is tremendously loyal, sincere, and willing to go to extraordinary lengths to make that person happy. Notorious B.I.G. is very giving and generous, but he expects recognition and appreciation for that which he gives. Notorious B.I.G. also expects the same loyalty and generosity to be reciprocated. Notorious B.I.G. often has trouble working with people who are as strong as himself, for he doesn’t share the leading role very easily.
He has a royal taste. Others are likely to judge him as extravagant, for he wants to have the very best of everything. Notorious B.I.G. will be tempted to run up bills if that is necessary to keep up appearances. Notorious B.I.G. wants to share good things with others, and can be particularly lavish if his sense of luxury is shared and appreciated. If he cannot show his generosity, graciousness and flair for good living, he will suffer deeply. Notorious B.I.G. wants to provide comfort for those around him at all times.
Others around him will not know how devastated he feels when he fails to live up to his expectations or to what he thinks are the expectations of others. But when he hides to lick his wounds, he needs to be particularly wary of indulging in alcohol or other drugs to help restore his self-esteem. Notorious B.I.G. could find them to be too effective, causing him to disregard more positive and healthy measures. Mood altering chemicals are likely to produce more euphoria for him than for others.
Others may expect more of him than he thinks he can deliver. However, he will do well in any profession where leadership ability is required, as in financial institutions and corporations. The profession will be empty though, if there is no applause. Notorious B.I.G. is ever the actor, and could very well be in that star-studded list of men and women in the dramatic arts or in politics, sports, and writing. Many of the world’s leaders appear to have his personality. So, all he gotta do is go for it.
VIRGO ON 2ND HOUSE

SCORPIO ON 4TH HOUSE
Pluto rules Scorpio on the fourth house of his chart. Scorpio is represented by the Eagle and the Serpent, while Pluto is the planet of regeneration and the underworld. This configuration in the fourth house of home-life can make him gruff with his household, but let outsiders beware! Any criticism from others will be totally resented, even if he agrees with them. Hers is likely to be an active home, with a special place, or “den” for him.
SAGITTARIUS ON 5TH HOUSE
Jupiter, the planet of expansion and “good fortune” rules Sagittarius, Sign of idealism and thrust. This combination in the fifth house of romance, children, and creative expression, magnifies the importance of these areas in his life.

CAPRICORN IN 6TH HOUSE
Saturn, planet of limitations and discipline, rules Capricorn, the sign of conservatism.

PISCES ON 8TH HOUSE
Pisces, an emotional sign, is ruled by Neptune, the psychic planet of hidden meanings. In the eighth house, a reluctance to dwell upon death or dying is indicated. If inheritances are indicated, they are likely to be under unusual conditions. Notorious B.I.G. may need to be more assertive in dealing with these areas.
ARIES ON 9TH HOUSE
Mars, the action planet of fire and energy, rules Aries, sign of new beginnings. This combination, in the ninth house of the higher mind and needs, can produce the crusader instinct. Notorious B.I.G. is not likely to be limited by traditional religious dogma, but visionary thought will influence studies into the occult.

This is the house of recognition, personal achievement, honor, and career or vocation, Taurus, the “bull” is ruled by Venus, planet of aesthetics, material resources, love, and sociability.

GEMINI IN 11TH HOUSE
Mercury rules Gemini, sign of the twins. When found in the eleventh house of friends, love received, and goals it indicates an intellectual duality in group activities.

THE PLANETS: POSITIONS AND ASPECTS
Astrology recognizes ten major “heavenly bodies” in the Universe that radiate various influences toward earth, and thus manifest themselves in the lives and affairs of mankind. The Sun and the Moon influences are most recognizable because some of them are visible and tactile, such as light and heat. They also provide the base for mankind’s calculation of time
the calendar and the clock. Influences distributed by the other eight planets may be less visible and more subtle, but not less real.
These emanations are constant, but the intensity of their influences can be tempered by the sign they are in, the house of his chart in which they are located, and by their angular aspects to each other. We touched upon this in the introduction to the Ascendant when we also introduced the term “synchronicity”. In the following pages we will print the individual interpretations of each planet in his chart with respect to the sign it is in, and its house position.
Following that we will print the interpretation of the planetary aspects to each other. Aspects are specific angles between two or more planets that have been found to modify the influences bestowed. Technically, every angle between planets creates an aspect, but some angles are more significant than others.
Astrology divides these aspects into “Major” and “Minor” categories. Minor aspects are used primarily in astrological research and for very precisely directed work, so we stick to the Major aspects in our general work. The major aspects 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 may seem to conflict with others. We look at the whole person, and the separate parts can modify, reinforce, or nullify each other.
We have pulled all this data together for him as it is displayed in his birth chart. This whole configuration can not be repeated or duplicated during his lifetime. Although the earth in its rotation around the Sun each year goes through all the twelve sign constellations and returns the Sun to its natal position, it takes Neptune 165 years and Pluto 248 years to complete their orbits. The planets are constantly moving their positions throughout the universe so that it is not possible for all the planetary positions and aspects to repeat themselves in their lifetime.
That leaves it up to us as individuals to deal with those influences imprinted upon us at birth and revealed through the horoscope. It is our hope, through astrology, that we may explain what those influences are and thus understand ourselves better. We have free will to make choices
choices which can affect those birth imprints in positive or negative ways. Probably no one of us will ever fulfill the “promises” of the natal chart in our lifetime, but hopefully, knowing what the influences are could help us to make some better choices.
PLANETARY SIGN AND HOUSE POSITIONS:
The following planetary sign and house positions are determined by HIS 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.
GEMINI SUN AND VIRGO MOON
These are both Mutable signs, and incline towards moodiness and feelings of being misunderstood or unappreciated. Mind and nerves are in developmental tension, and the need is to learn how to take appropriate action to externalize the intellectual desires. Procrastination can intensify the frustrations. Notorious B.I.G. needs to learn patience, and to work at calming his ideas and desires. Notorious B.I.G. is inventive, ingenious, innovative and full of ideas: he just needs to gain the confidence to carry them out. Notorious B.I.G. would be good at secretarial work, research and writing. Associate with positive people who can have a calming effect on him. Practice positive prayer and meditation to achieve patience and serenity.

MOON IN VIRGO
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 Virgo it indicates an exacting, hardworking, practical nature. Notorious B.I.G. is particular about food and diet, and concerned about health. Notorious B.I.G. has a great regard for neatness and cleanliness in personal hygiene and housekeeping as well.
This sign can even impose upon the emotional moon-child logical and orderly ways of doing things. Notorious B.I.G. is likely to understand even technical applications for doing things, but there will always be the caring and longings to help others. Notorious B.I.G. is more likely to express his love by doing things for people rather than by saying it in words. Intimate relationships may prove difficult and hard to come by for his expectations will be pretty high, and it is difficult for him to express his feelings. Relationships are important for his feelings of well-being, and losing one can cause painful depression.
Although ambition may not be extremely high, he can do anything he would choose to do in the way of profession or vocation. His technical skills are easily developed, and the caring disposition for others could open doors in the people-helping-people professions. His skills will always be supplemented and influenced by emotional undertones.
He may appear shy, for they are likely to like to work behind the scenes. Notorious B.I.G. pays attention to details and has a sincere desire to serve. Notorious B.I.G. could risk being blinded to the overall picture by his obsession with details, so he needs to look beyond the present picky activities and avoid excessive preoccupation with them. Watch out for a critical attitude of others whose style of doing things may differ from his own.
MOON IN THE SECOND 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. The Second House position indicates that his general emotional well-being is dependent upon material comfort.

Notorious B.I.G. probably has good business ability in matters dealing with food, home and real estate. Notorious B.I.G. need to watch out for tendencies toward unreasonable possessiveness and jealousy.
MERCURY IN TAURUS
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 Taurus, it bestows much practical common sense. This gives him a great power of concentration so that Notorious B.I.G. is able to ignore those with which he doesn’t want to be bothered. If carried too far, however, this could make he blind to things he should recognize for his own good, as well as add mental stubbornness. Notorious B.I.G. dislikes argument and disharmony, but will fight to protect his security and financial interests. Notorious B.I.G. are likely to possess the mental ability to convey his ideas through artistic directions and art forms.
MERCURY IN THE NINTH 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 ninth house position, it indicates an interest in higher education, or professions requiring advanced degrees. Many teachers and professors have Mercury in this house. Interest in philosophies can be strong. His decisions include moral and ethical considerations as well as the practical. Notorious B.I.G. needs to guard against intellectual pride and snobbery, and not allow himself to become dogmatic and sectarian in his opinions and beliefs.
VENUS IN CANCER
Venus in the signs indicates how he expresses his emotions in personal relationships and influences his attitude toward material things, creature comforts, and social and aesthetic values. In the sign Cancer it indicates deep sensitivity in all his romantic feelings. Notorious B.I.G. is likely to be extremely emotional and his feelings easily hurt. His moods will be fluctuating and unpredictable, but Notorious B.I.G. is likely to hide behind a dignified exterior.

Notorious B.I.G. will have many friends of the opposite sex. Friends often become romantic partners and romantic partners often become good friends. Strong alliances with musicians and other artists are strongly indicated.
MARS IN CANCER

Notorious B.I.G. needs to curb his impulsiveness.
JUPITER IN CAPRICORN
Jupiter in the signs indicates his ethical, religious, and philosophical standards and beliefs, and how he may express these interests. In Capricorn, it bestows the rather traditional, conservative values concerning religion, politics, education, and moral conduct. Notorious B.I.G. has a strong drive for power and status and has the ambition, patience, and managerial ability to attain great wealth. Notorious B.I.G. will exercise prudence, caution, and mature judgment, but may be lacking in imagination, creativity, and the ability to innovate. Avoid a self-serving attitude, and remember that others may be led more easily than driven.
JUPITER IN THE FIFTH HOUSE
Jupiter in the houses indicates the departments of life and the types of activity through which he expresses his religious, philosophic, and educational ideas. In the fifth house, it implies creativity in education, as well as the arts, sports, and all things pertaining to children. Consequently, he can be an inspiring teacher, counselor, or spiritual advisor to the heng.

SATURN IN THE TENTH 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 ten, strong career ambitions and the drive for status through his profession is paramount. Moral integrity and hard work is likely to help him achieve his desires, but avoid any tendency to compromise principles for the sake of ambition. This position is sensitive to karmic laws and violating principles could result in heavy karmic penalties. These same laws, through positive application, can provide all he needs to succeed, but success is not hiss alone. Notorious B.I.G. must fulfill his responsibility to the higher social order. Positive psychic guidance will show him how.

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 SATURN
This conjunction saddles the Sun’s power and will with discipline. This is not all bad, but it is not often pleasant. However, it is a powerful aspect and provides for growth opportunities.

Saturn also bestows the satisfaction of fulfillment, which can always be the result of self-discipline.
SUN OPPOSITE NEPTUNE
This opposition can cause confusion in romantic, religious, and personal relationships. Emotionalism can cause fantasies and wishful thinking on his part, making it easy for him to be deceived by others. Certain biases from the past can cause distortion in his understanding. Remember that squares and oppositions are obstacles that provide opportunities for growth, and the message here is to strive for objectivity in his contacts with others. Be absolutely open and aboveboard in all his relationships.
SUN SQUARE THE ASCENDANT

(However, we must remember, we still have free will to make choices.)

Social conditions or cosmic events can interfere with personal happiness and emotional fulfillment. This could involve a relationship between persons of extremely different cultural backgrounds, separations because of military obligations, or loss of a partner through accidental death.
