Beyonce – a country breakthrough

Country music is having a moment spearheaded by the unlikely figure of Beyonce who has stepped beyond her rhythm and blues image to deliver a message with Cowboy Carter, her latest album, which has soared to make her the first black woman to top Billboard’s country chart.

 Music critics say she “has come not to pay homage to country music but to transform it,” in a “dazzling, genre-defying songcraft, a twisted and magnificent psychedelic shapeshifting folk-rock hip-hop broadside against the conservatism of the country genre.”

  Her chart, 4 September 1981, Houston Texas has not a verified birth time, but her Venus Pluto in Libra are catching the opposition to the upcoming April Solar Eclipse, so it isn’t always a negative indicator.  She is in the middle of her midlife crisis with tr Uranus heading to oppose her Uranus so her rebel spirit will be surfacing  as she aims to fulfil old ambitions which have been pushed aside and step into a new mould.

   On astrotheme’s unverified 10am birthtime it puts the eclipse opposition her Ascendant as she revisions her image – so might be feasible.

  It won’t all be strumming guitars and roses ahead with tr Pluto opposing her Mars in Leo and North Node this year and next. But she does have a lucky, upbeat SA Jupiter conjunct her Uranus to look forward to in 2026 which is perhaps when the third album of her Renaissance trilogy comes out.

  1. “Son of a Preacher Man” is a song written and composed by American songwriters John Hurley and Ronnie Wilkins and recorded by British singer Dusty Springfield in September 1968 for the album Dusty in Memphis.” Wikipedia.

  2. It is not new. Dusty Springfield did it in the 60s. I can’t remember the name of the album, it was something like Dusty in Memphis. But her recording of, Son if a Preacher Man was phenomenal.
