How Cher’s zodiac sign made her the eternal ‘Goddess of Pop’

If we could turn back time, we would spend it reliving this diva’s iconic career.

When one refers to a living legend, there is only one that can wear the crown of the Goddess of Pop: Cher.

With a career that has spanned six decades, she has been iconic throughout the modern eras of pop culture, effectively standing in autonomy in a male-dominated industry. Effortlessly recreating herself, the diva has evolved throughout the years, back from the days of “Sonny & Cher.” In 1988 she earned an Academy Award for Best Actress for her role in 1987’s “Moonstruck” and today she reigns as the current Queen of autotune and ABBA covers.

Throughout her career, Cher has worn some of the most outrageous and jaw dropping fashion styles during her career—especially the fact she still rocks her iconic dark hair—the rocking pop artist is always bringing the heat—even to this day with her sass on social media! With Broadway shows and a biopic immortalizing the majesty of her life, she’s unafraid to get emotional about the ups and downs she’s weathered.

So was Cher chosen to rise and build the legacy she has—seated upon her throne forever? Or was she built with just enough passion and talent to prove that she’s the most enduring fighter in the ring? Join me as we dive into her stars because I’m a pop culture astrologer and I can see it all.

Cher’s birth chart shows she was meant to change the world—on her terms

Cher was born on May 20, 1946. This makes her a powerhouse TaurusSun with an ambitious Capricorn Moon. Her birth time is listed online, revealing that she is a soulful Cancer Ascendant. When it comes to elemental energy, she is heavily composed of Earth, with a strong emphasis on Air placements and Water. She’s built to endure, with immense strength and longevity infused into her body, energy, and spirit. When viewing her birth chart, I’m chuckling over her iconic interview where she said “she’s a rich man” because her stars sure as hell back up that confidence—and authentic truth—in spades.

When analyzing her birth chart, there are a few different themes that stand out to me. Let’s first start with the most noticeable one that can be seen repeated throughout her life—Cher is a rebel, visionary, and leader through the way she lives unapologetically in her truth. Her Jupiter, the planet of expansion, links to Uranus, the planet of genius, bringing her tremendous energy to always explore new horizons and people, never to be boxed in a cage and to break from convention in order to envision new possibilities beyond the status quo.

She strikes out to seize the day, trusting her high sense of optimism, inventiveness, and luck to always lead her where she’s meant to be—somewhere new and different that is essentially never the same. Her Moon, ruling her inner life, links exactly with Jupiter, too, bringing her tremendous fortune, material rewards, and opportunities for indulgence—the thing is, though, she doesn’t technically just seek to stack away her riches—she loves to spend them and enjoy life to its greatest degree. Her Sun links to Neptune, bringing her great resources of creativity, as well as an almost otherworldly divinity to her.

She can easily tap into the spiritual dimension of life as well as blend it with her journey and art, seemingly weaving a masterpiece everywhere she treads.  Last, her Venus also spins with Jupiter, bringing her refinement and nearly eternal beauty, as she seeks to embrace luxury and opportunity in all things. With her Neptune and Pluto also in agreement, she has always been able to intuitively tap into the collective unconscious of humanity—embodying a message the people must know.

Of course a major theme would also shine upon how blessed her professional legacy would be, too. Jupiter interlocks with her Saturn, bringing her excellent career success. Her Mars unites with Pluto, bringing her a great drive for power and the strength to champion for anything she believes in. Last, her Saturn and Venus shine upon her Midheaven, revealing that while she was always meant for glory, her sheer sense of persistence and determination lifted her to the heights of global celebrity.

The last theme I want to mention is that she’s always been able to tap into her basic sense of confidence and defiance. With her Moon opposite Saturn, she’s faced challenges and blockages around emotions in the past, which caused her to stand up and understand her true sense of feminine power and sensitivity. This sense of control around her emotions has granted her a unique perspective on relationships and in life. Her sense of humorand wit shine like a beacon, too. I love how her Moon chats with Mercury, and her Mercury links to Mars. She’s feisty, aggressive, and intelligent. She’s not living in a man’s world. Cher is living in Cher’s world.

What are predictions for Cher?

I’ll be honest: when I was growing up, I remember seeing and knowing of Cher, thinking that she was a piece of history that would always be there. Now, looking into her future, I know why—and that she will. Cher’s legacy is one that cannot be forgotten. I’m emotional just writing this because she is such a special icon, having broken through barriers for over six decades, standing like a goddess before the world. Going forward, there are some important things for her to face, though.

First off, she is undergoing transformative eclipses, redirecting her destiny and path from the end of 2021 until the end of 2023. This will bring very important moments for her about her legacy, physical health, and what she still seeks to do. Her professional impact will continue to be seen, as planets sit at the crown of her sky—but personal happiness will take precedence now and in the years to come. Jupiter, the planet of luck, will spin in her solar sector of healing, mental health and dreams throughout much of 2022 and 2023—with it finally joining her Sun sign in 2023 and 2024. This promises new beginnings.

As she continues to move forward, she will continue to beg for new horizons and experiences, yet hear the past singing and calling, as if begging her to remember the beauty of the immense journey she has been able to soar. Pluto, the planet of rebirth, will begin to form an opposition to her Pluto in the middle and late 2020s. This is when she will find her greatest sense of psychic and spiritual ability awaken, something she has never quite felt at this level before—as being reborn like a phoenix. In many ways, it will be as if she can hear and sense everything on a whole new level. I look forward to learning what she finds. God, I hope I meet her someday. You heard it here first.
