Sagittarius factor

Strikingly, many composers of classical music have one thing in common: Moon in Sagittarius.

  • Mozart  27 jan. 1756, Moon in Sagittarius 17 degrees
  • Beethoven  16 dec. 1770, Moon in Sag 16
  • Liszt  22 oct. 1811, Moon in Sag 19
  • Brahms  7 may 1833, Moon in Sag 24
  • Prokofiev  27 april 1891, Moon in Sag 17

Impressive, isn’t it? Considering there are 11 more signs available in any given time.

Then there are those who have Mars in Sagittarius:

  • Haydn  31 mar. 1732, Moon in Gemini, Mars in Sag 4
  • Dvorak  8 sept. 1841, Moon in Gemini, Mars in Sag 1
  • Bach  21 mar. 1685, Moon in Pisces, Mars in Sag 11
  • Ravel  7 mar. 1875, Moon in Pisces, Mars in Sag 12

Sagittarius in their charts means the presence of Jupiter, be it Moon or Mars, as Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter. Pisces is another sign ruled by Jupiter too. See Bach-Ravel Moon/Mars Jupiter ‘repertoire’ above.

Neptune is known to be the muse of music and art, but it is an outer planet. Closer to our home, it is instead Jupiter that bestows musical genius, or so it seems.
