I noticed that most of the big names in music right now have strong Mars influences. Today's mainstream music seems to thrive on intensity and standing out. And Mars fits this bill.
Here are all the Mars people I've noticed:
Lady Gaga: Aries sun
Katy Perry: Scorpio sun & moon
Kesha: Aries moon
Beyonce: Scorpio moon
Rihanna: Aries moon
Drake: Scorpio sun
Tinie Tempah (he's British and totally amazing): Scorpio sun
Jessie J (also British and amazing): Aries sun
I'm sure there are more that I can't think of :)
Also, Bieber has Scorpio rising, but I don't know if that's strong enough to qualify lol
Anyway, what do you think of that? Do you think it's a valid trend? And, if so, why?
Answer on Mars influenced people taking over the music industry?
You are correct about the Mars influence in most artist. For one thing, you need lots of energy and drive to perform on stage. That comes from Mars. A performer needs energy and drive for dancing, moving, jumping, etc..etc. Mars doesn't contribute to musical abilities like Venus. It will determine the drive needed and how it is used. The musical talent itself is mostly sign related, with an active 5th house, strong Venus, Neptune, Libra, Mercury (to remember the words and mimicry).
