Tasteless, vulgar, sexually provocative at an age where it looks tacky and 17 years passed her last hit, Madonna’s fortieth anniversary tour had the appearance of a desperate cry for attention from a has been. Until she had the last laugh with the tickets selling out in minutes with 600,000 bought in one day. 23 concerts have been added to the 37 dates already announced for The Celebration Tour thanks to massive fan demand. The tour of North America and Europe, kicking off on July 1st and finishing 1 December, is 98% sold out.
Never underestimate the public taste for shock.
She was born 16 August 1958 in Bay City, MI, maybe 7.05 am, and what is floating her boat this year is her Solar Arc Sun conjunct her Jupiter all year, peaking mid year onwards. Tr Pluto opposing her Venus will ratchet up her emotional/seductive appeal between now and June and again in 2024.
Not everything will go entirely to plan with tr Pluto square her Jupiter/Neptune midpoint mid June to late July which Ebertin describes as ‘plans unreasonable beyond measure.’ Though she has a minorly buoyant Jupiter/Pluto at the same time. August will see an upsetting tr Uranus square her Sun. August and September also look confused and fraught on the relationship front – which is understandable with that kind of tour since working relationship tensions will run very high. Late September and October will be downbeat.
Tr Saturn will also oppose her Pluto and Mercury on and off through these months which will also be downbeat.
But her SA Sun on Jupiter will keep her buoyant even with aggravation behind the scenes. Though she may find the physical strain of that much performing too much given her previous creaks and groans – it will be a punishing schedule.
