When Is Eminem’s Birthday?

Eminem’s birthday is October 17.

Eminem’s Sun Sign Is In Rhythmic Libra

•The Sun represents the essence of your personality, your main character energy•

Marshall “Eminem” Bruce Mathers III’s astrological sign is Libra. He was born on October 17, 1972, in St. Joseph, Michigan.

Libras are the natural artists of the zodiac, with a keen eye for creative collaboration. Eminem’s Libra Sun is placed in the tenth house of his chart, the house of career and legacy. Tenth house Suns are ultimately here to get paid and to be themselves as part of their true purpose.

Eminem has been credited with popularizing hip hop in Middle America (hello, NFL Super Bowl Halftime Show) and is widely regarded as one of the best rappers of all time, a testament to his tenth house Sun shining ever so brightly.

While Libras are traditionally associated with grace and social etiquette, it’s safe to say that Eminem’s not your average Libra Sun. He’s got some edgy placements that flavor his identity!

Eminem also has a Libra Stellium 

•A stellium is when three or more planets are in the same zodiac sign or house in a birth chart•

Eminem’s natal chart shows Pluto, Mars and Uranus in Libra, in addition to his Sun! Three or more planets or placements in the same sign of a chart is called a stellium. With four planets in Libra, relationships are thematically at the heart of Marshall’s matters.

Mars, the planet of war, tends to feel rather uncomfortable in polite Libra; Mars is all about assertion while Libra (ruled by Venus) wants to desperately smooth things over to keep the peace. Eminem is ultimately here to navigate the tense fight for his peace of mind.

Eminem’s Mars happens to be situated right next to his natal Uranus, the planet of genius and rebellion. Uranus placements are highly original, with a propensity to march (or rap) to the beat-of-their-own-drum. When Mars and Uranus come together, it’s an energetic explosion of energy and a desire to subvert the status quo—in Libra, social norms need not apply. 

Eminem also has his Pluto in Libra, adding an element of emotional complexity and wounding to his already hyper reactive and short-fused Libra stellium. Pluto can reflect deep wounding and trauma in the chart, especially concerning his relationships (Libra). In Libra, a lot of these grievances and trauma can be traditionally masked or censored given its explicit nature; Eminem certainly went above and beyond cleaning out his closet.

Eminem’s Moon Is In Original Aquarius

•Your moon sign governs the “inner you” and influences your emotions•

Eminem happens to have an Aquarius moon, indicative of his genius and his propensity to push the envelope, though not without some controversy (picket signs for his wicked rhymes).

Aquarius is the ultimate sign of the underdog. With his Aquarius moon, Eminem has undoubtedly carved out his place in rap history as one of the all-time greatest white rappers.

His moon is located in the second house of confidence and resources, implying that his authenticity is the key to his success. The second house is also associated with Taurus energy, associated with the voice; Eminem has had ten No. 1 albums on the Billboard 200, all debuting at No. 1 on the chart consecutively. 

Eminem’s Rising Sign Is Bombastic Sagittarius

•Your rising sign, or ascendant, is the first impression you make. Like a filter, it “tints” your Sun sign•

Eminem has his rising sign in Sagittarius. Sagittarius risings are known for their sense of humor and propensity to exaggerate. Eminem has certainly made a name for himself with his outlandishly violent commentary (he did joke about murdering his ex-wife, Kim) as part of his “comedic” flair. 

Of course, Sagittarius risings are also all about the truth! Will the Real Slim Shady, please stand up?

Eminem’s Chart Ruler is Father-Figure Capricorn

•Your chart ruler is the planet that rules over your rising sign•

As a Sagittarius Rising, Eminem’s chart is ruled by his Jupiter in Capricorn, a much needed grounding element that can temper his Sagittarius ability to pop off! 

Jupiter can be traditionally interpreted as a guiding figure, while Capricorn evokes themes like ambition and fatherhood. Eminem’s Jupiter in Capricorn is placed in his first house of self, emphasizing his role as sole provider for his family. 

This Capricorn placement can also indicate times of great difficulty and perseverance. One listen of “Mockingbird” and you can feel Eminem’s heartbreak as he attempts to sing his version of a lullaby to his daughter, Hailie Jade (who happens to be a Capricorn herself, how sweet).

Jupiter can also indicate inspiration in the birth chart. Ever since she was born, Hailie Jade has served as Eminem’s ultimate muse, fueling his drive for success and ability to offer his family the life he didn’t have growing up.

Love Astrology for Eminem: A Struggle to Harmonize

•Venus and Mars are the love planets in astrology. In your birth chart, Venus represents seduction and romance while Mars represents lust, motivation and erotic instincts.

Mars and Venus in Eminem’s natal chart are situated next to each other in the zodiac, reflecting a potential struggle to harmonize conflicting energies.

Eminem’s Venus is in critical Virgo. Virgo is concerned with standards meeting reality; in the case of relationships: what could be versus what is. His Venus happens to also challenge his Sagittarius rising self, meaning that Eminem might struggle to negotiate his independence with being in a relationship – refusing to settle down until he finds the elusive “perfect” mate.  

With Eminem’s Mars in Libra, he’s a natural flirt with a strong urge to socialize. However, his Venus in Virgo is looking to ground that airy and social disposition with some hard doses of reality and pragmatism. 

Eminem’s South Node Is In Family-Oriented Cancer

•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).

Eminem has his South Node (past-life karma) in Cancer and his North Node (destiny) in Capricorn. With a South Node in Cancer, Eminem is more sensitive than he might let on with his acerbic tongue. 

His Cancer South Node is located in his eighth house of therapy and patterns of behavior, indicating that Eminem’s got some serious healing to do around family wounds and its impact on his intimate relationships. 

With a Capricorn North Node, Eminem is here to take responsibility for his emotions and work towards the art of healthy intimate conflict.
