In the News:


Celebrating her 90th birthday this month.
Lena Horne by John Townley

Lena Horne, born during the latter days of World War I, is still with us and has one of the more unique and peculiar charts in the music business, primarily because she was an innovator in what was at the time a harsh and devious business for a black woman breaking into a white world. A very jagged splay-pattern chart is spiked by a somewhat vindictive Scorpio Moon square Uranus setting off several other powerful clusters of inner-outer planet combos that spell H-E-A-V-Y in the most sinuous possible way.

You would expect “heavy” to have a lot of earth, but the chart is devoid of it, making her totally fearless in a system where there was much to be feared by the likes of her. Her style was emotional, supple, and inspirational and with angular nodes aligned with the intense Cancer Sun, she followed where fate would lead her, though she didn’t hesitate to provide plenty of input herself. A Venus-Saturn-Neptune conjunction signifies a downtrodden idealist who had to do with far less resources than she needed but coped nevertheless, especially as she has faith-filled Pluto conjunct and rising ahead of the angular Sun, so that she sang from heart, soul, and a certainty that she herself and her cause would prevail, despite the lifelong “Stormy Weather” that was her theme song. With Aries rising, she was typecast early as a “colored” firebrand and her films were often crippled by either racial or sexual censors who sometimes literally cut her out of her own films. Nevertheless, she endured by sheer force of will both in the movies and on record to become one of jazz’s greatest stylists.

She worked tirelessly for civil rights alongside of Paul Robeson and Eleanor Roosevelt, and her personal fight to get and keep herself recognized as an artist in Hollywood included her marriage to MGM Jewish arranger Lenny Hayton purely for career reasons, as she revealed to Ebony magazine after his death.

Current events: Still alive and kicking, she’s consulting on her own biographical film in which she will be played by none other than Whitney Houston, her pick for the part.
