When Is Lil Wayne’s Birthday?

Lil Wayne’s birthday is September 27.

Lil Wayne’s Sun Sign Is Collaborative Libra

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

Lil Wayne (Dwayne Michael Carter Jr.) was born on September 27, 1982, in New Orleans, Louisiana. His astrological sign is Libra.

Libra is the zodiac sign associated with artistry and partnership (quintessential “band” energy). As a Libra Sun, Lil Wayne understands that the sum of the parts are greater than the artistic whole. As one of the most influential hip-hop artists of all-time, Lil Wayne has seemingly collaborated with everyone across the music industry, from DJ Khaled to Imagine Dragons and Ariana Grande

Wayne even founded a record label based off the supergroup, Young Money Entertainment, in 2005, signing artists like Drake, Tyga, and Nicki Minaj.

Lil Wayne’s (Retrograde) Mercury Influences His Music Style

Mercury directs the ways we think, communicate and share information.•

Lil Wayne happens to have a natal retrograde Mercury, a planet concerned with lyrics and intellect. His Mercury is situated right by his Sun, indicative of musicality holding deep significance to his identity. 

A retrograde Mercury can indicate a highly original and counterculture perspective that lends itself to feeling misunderstood (but hey! What’s the world without enigma, real Gs move in silence like lasagna). Lil Wayne’s unique lyricism and musical style has influenced several rappers and musicians, including Kendrick Lamar, Future and even Fall Out Boy.

Mercury is also a sign associated with youth and early childhood memories. With the natal retrograde flavor, the idea of an artistic prodigy comes to mind (he is reported to have written his first rap song at 8 years old!). Lil Wayne was the youngest member of his record label, Cash Money Records, having signed on at age 11; his association with the label ended in 2018. 

Lil Wayne’s Chart Reflects a Libra Stellium

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

In addition to his Sun and Mercury, Wayne’s chart also features Pluto and Saturn in Libra.

Pluto and Saturn are widely recognized as the “no-nonsense daddies” of the zodiac, folding some tough love into Wayne’s natal chart configuration, especially concerning relationship dynamics (Libra). Pluto and Saturn aspects might not be the most pleasant to navigate, but necessary as part of one’s healing journey. 

Pluto can invoke the idea of tyranny and control while Saturn is associated with boundaries and authority. It would be difficult to talk about Wayne without mention of his mentor and Cash Money Records boss Birdman (Bryan Williams). Birdman assumed the role of a consistent guiding figure in Wayne’s life, noting that “since 8 or 9, [he] took the young life from [Wayne].” They even released an album together, Like Father, Like Son, in 2006.

However, it’s been widely reported that Wayne felt stifled (Saturn) creatively (Libra) by Birdman and the label (Pluto). Despite Birdman claiming Wayne as a son, Wayne ultimately sued Cash Money Records for $51 million and a release from his contract in 2015. 

Editor’s note: Because Lil Wayne’s exact birth time is unknown, we use noon to generate his birth chart details. Without a birth time, you can’t accurately know a person’s Rising sign. There is still a LOT of data you can glean by knowing a date and location of birth—so don’t let that stop you from checking out your astrology natal chart if you don’t know your exact birth time, either!

Lil Wayne’s South Node Is In Hedonistic Capricorn

•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).

Lil Wayne has his South Node (past-life karma) in Capricorn and his North Node (destiny) in Cancer. With his South Node in Capricorn, Wayne is incredibly resilient, with an ability to withstand some extraordinarily difficult circumstances. Wayne actually suffered a near-fatal self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest as a 12-year-old boy.

Capricorn energy is also associated with the “work hard/play hard” mantra-the idea of letting loose after a grueling work stretch. Wayne has suffered numerous seizures attributed to his favorite cough-syrup codeine cocktail “sizzurp.” 

With his North Node in Cancer, Wayne is here to prioritize his self-care as he searches for his idealized version of family. Capricorn is the zodiac sign traditionally associated with the father, a tricky subject for Wayne as his father abandoned the family when he was 2. 

Love Astrology for Lil Wayne: Pragmatism Vs. Spontaneity

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.•

Lil Wayne’s Venus is in Virgo and his Mars is in Sagittarius, presenting a bit of an elemental clash. Virgo is an earth sign that tends to value pragmatism and measuredness, clashing with fiery Sagittarius’ spontaneous tendencies.

Wayne’s Mars in Sagittarius happens to be energized by his natal Uranus, the planet that beats to its own drum/orbit. Uranus hates to be controlled and values its independence above all. With Mars and Uranus in such close proximity, Wayne has the potential to surprise his romantic partners with his impulsive tendencies.

Wayne’s Venus in Virgo also forms a challenging 90 degree aspect known as a square with his natal Neptune in Sagittarius. This aspect colors Wayne’s relationships with some romantic delulu energy in pursuit of his “ideal” woman (woman of his dreams, he doesn’t sleep so he can find her). Even though Wayne is a romantic-at-heart, he ultimately might run into some trouble grounding himself in a partnership.

Singer Christina Milian previously addressed her relationship with Lil Wayne, breaking down in tears on her E! Docu-soap Christina Milian Turned Up after confessing that Wayne had cheated on her for the second time.
