If you're a leading lady in Indian popular cinema, there's a look you ought to have – long smooth hair, pale skin, almond eyes. It goes without saying really, that your sexual charisma needs to be pretty volcanic.
Since all the other leading ladies look like you and have a certain sex appeal too, you also need to have an X factor. It may be sheer pizzazz like Kajol or glorious feline grace like Aishwarya Rai or it could be simply that you are the best dancer to trip across the silver screen in a generation – yes I'm talking about Madhuri Dixit. Happy Birthday (May 15, 1967).
She was the Bollywood star for fans of the genre from the late 1980s to the early noughties, so it's good to see that the powerhouse Pluto-Uranus conjunction for her generation born in the the mid-60s nicely trines her Taurus Sun. Taurus is ruled by the Venus, of course, who is among other things the planet of harmony and art. Dancers often have strong Taurus.
|Dixit's natal chart - no birth time.|
Dixit is famed for her voluptuous figure as well as her dancing. She has Venus in Cancer squaring Saturn in athletic Aries - I bet she works out pretty hard to keep those curves under control. Saturn also opposes Mars in Libra, which is a particlarly interesting placement for a dancer. Dixit's dancing shows that she's superfit as well as musical. That Mars in Libra combines physicality with art.
Some charts are very clean - like this one - which leads me to look at minor aspects that I might ordinarily leave aside. In Dixit's chart it's hard to overlook the fact that Neptune is on the point of two sesquiquadrates (I can't even say that word. It means a square and a half.) from Saturn and Venus which are in square. That tells the story – talent (Venus) and hard work (Saturn) made her a star (Neptune opp Sun).
If you take a look at Dixit's fifth harmonic there's a clear message. We still have the Sun-Neptune combo but we Mars (physicality) is also involved. Mars-Neptune is all about dancing. Neptune is music and Mars is movement. We also have another powerful opposition Mercury (commuincations) opposite Venus and Pluto (female sex appeal). Pretty straightforward really.
This is analysis is for P by the way, who is a bit of Dixit buff.
