Demis Roussos, the Uranian artist – an astrological perspective
Full Moon. The cool June evening air is filled with sweet,
romantic sounds. The ancient theatre under the Acropolis, with its
eternal grace, provides an ideal setting. The audience sing along, as,
for each one of us, the song brings back memories – of old? of more
recent? No matter.
As I listened to the songs ,sung by the exquisite voice of
Demis Roussos during his recent concert in Athens, it brought back
memories for me, too. Not only individual memories, but collective ones,
of events that marked the sixties, the seventies , and the eighties.
Looking at Demis Roussos’s biography, we will see that his
life was certainly greatly affected by world events, which were very
disruptive, but it seems that for him they turned out to his benefit, in
the long run.
Demis Roussos is under the influence of
Uranus, as his Sun in the 9th house is in conjunction with Uranus, ruler
of the 5th house of creativity, and in favourable aspect – trine- to
Jupiter. Such is the nature of Uranus – upheaval, disruption,doing away
with the known, the comfortable, the predictable, and forcing one to
plunge into the unknown.
I’d like to focus here, from an astrological point of view,
on a number of life-changing events which affected his life, which
events were not only of a personal, but of a collective nature,
affected not only a large number of people but whole countries and
influence the socio-political conditions of their respective time
Certainly, in Demis’s case, the Uranian events outlined below, although upsetting , did turn out well eventually.
Demis was born in Egypt, Alexandria in 1946, where he lived
with his family up to 1961, when the Suez crisis came to a head and many
foreign residents had to flea the country. So with Demis’s family, they
moved back to their country of origin, Greece.
Below is Demis’s progressed chart for 1961, upon his family’s leaving Egypt and return to Greece :
We see in his chart above that the progressed moon
conjuncted natal Venus in Cancer, which is natally conjunct saturn, and
also formed a conjunction with prog. Saturn. The presence of Saturn
suggests that the move was made under stressful conditions, and , in any
case, the ‘homeland’ would pose restrictions on him. After all, his Sun
in the natal 9th house, suggested that Demis would make a career
abroad, and he would be able to exercise his originality and creativity
and feel less restricted in another country – as previously mentioned,
his Sun is conjunct Uranus, ruler of the 5th house, and trine Jupiter).
The prog. MC sextile natal Neptune shows his first forming
of his group, the ‘Idols’ and his beginning to play in night clubs and
sing during his years in Greece.All through 1961, transiting Uranus was
sextiling natal Sun, opening new avenues of opportunity for Demis.
Demis met Vangelis Papathanasiou – the now famous
‘Vangelis’- in 1966 and they became friends. They decided to move to
England to seek bettter musical career opportunities. However, they were
not allowed to enter Britain and were stranded in Paris instead during
the ‘May 1968′ events. Demis Rousso’s started his international career
in music in 1968 in Paris, through a crisis situation. They were
running out of cash, so, they decided to form a group and start
recording songs.They formed the group ‘Aphrodite’s child’ and recorded
the song ”Rain and tears” . A few weeks later, ” Rain and tears” was
number one in the charts.
In Demis’s prog. chart for 1968 above, we see the prog. Moon
squaring the natal Venus-Saturn conjunction, indicating the difficult
situations he met upon leaving his country and moving abroad. But the
prog.Moon also sextiled Mars – forming the new , creative group ( Mars
rules the 5th and is placed in the 11th house). Prog. Mercury
conjuncted Pluto, showing the compulsion for going abroad ( Mercury
rules the 9th house) but also the beginnning of his financial and
career success ( Pluto rules the 2nd house, and both prog. planets are
in the 10th house of career). Prog. Venus sextiled his natal Sun in the
9th, creating opportunities for his music, while tr. Uranus and Pluto
were squaring his Sun. Apparently, he went through a lot of stressful
situations and deep personal experiences which made him different, and
stronger at the end. In three years time, we see that the prog. Sun
approached the square to natal Jupiter – the time when Demis started his
solo career following the breakup of ‘Aphrodite’s child’ .
Demis went through another shocking experience in 1985 .He
was one of the passengers in the TWA Flight 847 which was highjacked on
June 14 1985.Demis boared the flight from Athens flying to Rome, when
the flight was highjacked. Although he ang other 8 Greek passengers wer
released after a couple of days, he described this as a really
In the prog. chart for 1985, we see that prog. Mars at 20
degrees Virgo is squaring prog. Uranus at 20 degrees Gemini forming an
exact square aspect. This is an aspect showing , among else, danger of
accidents especially to do with affairs ruled by Uranus – and of course
flying is one of them! Transiting Uranus was forming a T-square to this
prog. aspect from 16 degrees of Sagittarius.
Demis came through this experience shocked but unharmed. The
protective transit of Jupiter, trining his natal Jupiter, and of course
the natal trine between his Jupiter and Sun,thus forming a grand
trine, helped him to overcome this difficult situation . This experience
changed him a lot and he decided to go back to his music, as he’d been
off the music scene for a few years.
Since, he’s had a successful and productive career to this
date. So, Uranus for Demis, in spite seemingly difficult situations he
put him through, works out for his benefit in the long run, along with
