George Martin, the English record producer, composer, conductor, who became known as the fifth Beatle for his game-changing involvement in their early albums, has died. Unlike his music business colleagues he recognised in the Beatles a new pop phenomenon and went out of his way to nurture their output.
Born 3 January 1926 2.29pm London, England, he had an intensely private Capricorn Sun in the 8th opposition a determined Pluto in the financial 2nd house. His chart is dominated by two main configurations. One a Fixed T Square from a charming, artistic Venus in Aquarius conjunct his MC opposition to a musical Neptune square an obsessively conscientious Saturn in Scorpio in the hard-working 6th.
Even more significant is a creative, emotionally self-protective Water Grand Trine of North Node in Cancer trine Saturn trine a maverick, innovative 10th house Uranus, formed into an even more talented Kite by North Node opposition Jupiter on the cusp of the 9th for a worldwide reach in his achievements. He had talents in abundance, luck, drive and the ability to endure.
His two creative Harmonics (5th and 7th) are strong; as is his leaving-a-legacy-for-history 17H; and superstar 22nd Harmonic.
His relationship with Paul McCartney and John Lennon was friendly and affectionate and key to their careers obviously. GM’s Gemini Ascendant was conjunct Paul’s MC and Sun; with GM’s lucky Jupiter and Venus falling in Paul’s performing 5th. GM’s Capricorn Sun was in John Lennon’s 10th, with GM’s musical Neptune in Lennon’s 5th. Though the latter was a more troubled, complex relationship. In both relationship charts there was a Uranus square Pluto suggesting a potential to revolutionize all three lives and the pop music industry in which they were involved.
