What makes somebody a singer
Sun rules singing, but what makes singing manifested in a chart?
For example, what to look for:
- Singer who can sing with legendary quality but may not have fame
- Singer who does not sing with great quality but has great fame
- Singer who has both legendary quality and fame
- Singer who has neither legendary quality nor fame
- Someone who has fascination for singing but does not make the grade of a singer
What would make singing jump out of a Sun's indications from among all his other indications?
To learn how to see a singer you need to take the first three Jaimini audio courses where that is covered.
Degree of talent is determined by dignities.
Fame is determined by the yogas in the chart that produce fame as well as a strong 10th and 7th house. So if a person has raja yogas, a strong 7th and 10th and named yogas and jaimini yoga planets, they will be famous for that if any of the singing related planets form these things.
I took the first three audio Jaimini courses, and surely, it has so many profound concepts and teachings.
Regarding singing, I have produced a music album and sung in it. Music has been arranged by professionals in the industry, and I sold few hundred copies of this album. Other than that, I have performed on stage several times, but most importantly I have been greatly passionate about singing and feel singing has been my introductory path to spirituality. But singing has never been a major job or career for me.
Now I have Sun exalted in D1, and Sun is in Leo in both D9 and D60. I see Sun is Rashi aspecting 2nd cusp in D1, but I see no connection in D9 and D60 between Sun and 2nd cusp.
Sun is not my career planet but becomes a skill planet in D9.
Is this expected, or do we expect a 2nd cusp connection in D60 for my singing activities to have manifested? Is this a rectification candidate for D60?
Elvis Presley has Sun in 2nd cusp. So, your Sun placement does not disqualify you from being a great singer
Haha, I can carry a tune and know when I am "off". Elvis had a Venus AK double delighted by friends and joined Su/Me in 2nd. You mentioned your wife also has Venus connection I bet Venus influence makes a big difference. I was trying to think of descriptive word for Elvis or others I know, with strong Venus influence. Fluid, smooth and full - like the space is "full" or "fulfilled". There is definitely a special quality to the voice.
My 2nd is empty, and my 2nd lord is Mars, malefic but it is in my pada.
Sounds like you have Libra lagna, where is Venus and Mars?
Do you think Mars changes your approach to song, such as it needing to be more planned/engineered? You mentioned in one post it was a "passion", a quality of Mars so I wonder how your experience might differ from someone with a Venus influence.
