When Is Adele’s Birthday?
Adele’s birthday is May 5.
Adele’s Sun Sign Is In Musical Taurus
•The Sun represents the essence of your personality, your main character energy•
Adele’s astrological sign is Taurus. She was born on May 5, 1988, in Tottenham, United Kingdom.
Taurus is the zodiac sign associated with one’s voice and throat; certainly no artist embodies a voice quite like Adele with her mezzo-soprano range. Tauruses are also known for their tendency to take things at a more measured pace, reflecting the pace of Adele’s album drops.
Located in her eleventh house of fans and community, Adele can take on an aspirational, almost God-like status. With such high expectations, however, comes the potential for a tremendous amount of projection and backlash. Fans (rather unfairly) labeled Adele “a diva” after she had to postpone her shows due to the coronavirus.
Adele’s Sun happens to be aspecting her Jupiter and Pluto. Pluto invites some emotional intensity and Jupiter tends to magnify everything it touches; a true powerhouse performer with an ability to stir up deep feelings. Adele happens to be am enthusiastic basketball fan, too, frequenting games with her partner, sports agent Rich Paul.
Adele’s Moon Is In Go-Big-Or-Go-Home Sagittarius
•Your moon sign governs the “inner you” and influences your emotions•
Adele’s Sagittarius moon is right next to her Saturn (fear and discipline) and Uranus (breakthrough), emblematic of Adele’s “early life crisis,” the beginning of her US crossover efforts. Adele had initially canceled her 2008 U.S. tours to be with a former boyfriend, indicative of a young Sagittarius impulsive mindset.
Adele’s Saturn and Uranus can bring about frustration in the chart, especially if she’s not being disciplined about her dreams (moon). With Adele’s Sagittarius moon in her sixth house of work, she has cemented her place as one of the all time greatest artists with 16 GRAMMY Award wins under her belt, as of this writing.
Adele’s Rising Sign Is Motherly Cancer
•Your rising sign, or ascendant, is the first impression you make. Like a filter, it “tints” your Sun sign•
Adele is a Cancer Rising. Cancer Risings tend to like playing host for their fans, friends and families. It’s no surprise that Adele curates a space for her community through her artist residency “Weekends with Adele” at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
She also just recently announced a surprise custom pop-up stadium in Munich, Germany—classic Cancer rising move to build a mini home while traveling abroad.
Adele’s Chart Ruler Also Is Her Sagittarius Moon
•Your chart ruler is the planet that rules over your rising sign•
As a Cancer Rising, Adele’s chart is ruled by her Sagittarius Moon. Think of chart rulers like your personal avatar. With a Sagittarius Moon, Adele’s identity gets a humorous disposition along with a bit of a potty mouth.
However, that’s not the only shocking thing coming out of her mouth! As noted above, her Sag moon is colored with a fusion of Saturn and Uranus. Saturn rules time and age while Uranus brings about the unexpected. Adele is widely known for her soulful musical presence, lightyears beyond her youth.
Love Astrology for Adele: Looking For Intellect
Mars and Venus in Adele’s natal chart form a harmonious elemental aspect known as a trine. With Adele’s Mars and Venus in air signs, Adele’s looking for exciting, intellectual stimulation in her relationships and has no problem serving up some witty banter.
However, her Mars-Venus configuration could contribute to some emotional avoidance; Adele might find herself lost in conversation as she struggles to communicate what’s really bothering her. Or perhaps, she might find herself in relationships with those who reflect that tendency back to her (hello from the other side, she must have called a thousand times).
Adele has Mars in Aquarius, meaning that her cool, unbothered demeanor might actually mask her true feelings. This is a rather loyal placement, Aquarius is a fixed sign after all! Located in her ninth house of foreign travel and culture, Adele might find herself attracted to someone who is able to broaden her worldview with her Mars in Aquarius.
Meanwhile, Adele’s Venus is in Gemini, a curious placement that works well with her Mars in Aquarius’ non-basic interests. Adele’s Venus in Gemini is located in her twelfth house of intuition and mysticism, indicating that relationships are significant spiritual teachers for her.
Chiron in Adele’s Birth Chart Reveals Musical Influences
•Your Chiron sign can reveal your core wound in this lifetime, and also hold the key to unlocking your personal superpower•
Adele happens to have her Chiron in Gemini, right on top of her Venus. Adele’s Chiron and Venus converge in her chart’s twelfth house, indicating that heartbreak might very well be a necessary teacher in her evolution as she learns to communicate.
On a lighter note, Venus in Gemini can also be linked with childhood and early musical influences (or lovers). Adele has cited the Spice Girls (the ultimate personification of Venus in Gemini) as a huge influence on her love for music as a child, noting that she was “heartbroken” (Chiron) when Ginger Spice left the group.
Adele’s South Node Is In Meticulous Virgo
•Astrologers use the nodes of the moon (found opposite each other in your birth chart) to determine where your destiny lies (North Node) and what you were in past lifetimes (South Node).
Adele has her South Node (past-life karma) in Virgo and her North Node (destiny) in Pisces. With a South Node in Virgo, Adele is learning to navigate the tension between perfectionism and surrendering to possibility.
Her Virgo South Node is located in her fourth house of home and family. This is a rather private placement given its location at the bottom of the Adele birth chart. At the other end of the spectrum, her North Node in Pisces is placed in her tenth house of career and reputation. Pisces is a sign linked to fame and glamor as well as emotional sensitivity.
As the fourth house can be traditionally associated with Cancer energy, Adele’s karmic destiny emphasizes her courage to emotionally come out of her shell, assuming her role as a musical icon on the world stage. It seems she’s doing just that as her second studio album, 21 (released in 2011) remains the world’s best-selling album of the 21st century!
