Nicki Minaj’s chart, interpreted by The AstroTwins
The following analysis by celebrity astrologers Tali & Ophi Edut, aka The AstroTwins, highlights the most interesting astrological features of Nicki Minaj’s birth chart for all level astrology readers to understand.
When Is Nicki Minaj’s Birthday?
Nicki Minaj’s birthday is December 8.
Nicki Minaj’s Sun Sign Is Outspoken Sagittarius
•The Sun represents the essence of your personality and your main character energy•
Nicki Minaj was born December 8, 1982, in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago.
Nicki Minaj’s astrological sign is Sagittarius, and she is true to trait for this sign’s tell-it-like-it-is quality! She is outspoken, in your face, and as a fire sign, fans the flames of controversy often!
Her Sun is in the 10th house, which represents success, career and authority. The tenth house often associated with masculinity and the “boys club.” As a female rap artist, she has broken through a lot of glass ceilings and paved the way for future women to find their place in what was once a mostly male-dominated music genre.
Nicki Minaj’s Moon Is Particular Virgo
•Your moon sign governs the “inner you” and influences your emotions•
While as a Sagittarius Sun Nicki Minaj can be open-minded and experimental, she talks a good game. Because of her moon sign in Virgo, she can also be surprisingly conservative when someone tugs on her heartstrings. People born with moon in critical Virgo are often particular and fussy. When it comes to their turn-ons, they are specific (if not explicit) in their tastes. They’re not afraid to ask for what they want and they like things just so.
When somebody has earned her loyalty, Nicki can be devoted, going to great lengths to help out. But she can also be quite preachy with advice (a Virgo trap!) So some of her helpful hints can hit below the belt.
Nicki Minaj’s Rising Sign Is Original Aquarius
•Your rising sign, or ascendant, rules the first impression you make. Like a filter, it “tints” your Sun sign•
Nicki Minaj’s birth chart reveals that she was born with an Aquarius rising, a freedom-loving, eccentric sign that complements her Sagittarius Sun. You never know what will come out of her mouth, which is both her charm and at times, her downfall.
Aquarius is a collaborative sign and this rising sign makes her naturally eager to join forces with people who she admires. She has offered up her rhymes on many pop tracks (hello, Barbie!).
But look out! With her ascendant in the sign of the renegade, the rebel, she courts controversy as part of her nature. She doesn’t like to be put in a box. She will speak out when she feels wronged—or sees others being mistreated. Aquarius is the humanitarian and people with this rising sign have a keen sense of justice.
Love Astrology Of Nicki Minaj
Mars and Venus in Nicki Minaj’s natal chart show some friction because they’re one sign apart, which gives these planets a very different energy to each other. As a result, she may have challenges in finding a partner with enough range to please her.
Nicki’s Venus is in Sagittarius, the zodiac’s world traveler, and that may be why she’s attracted to people from different countries and cultures. But her Mars is in Capricorn, so she may like a “Marlboro Man” type who shares her cultural traditions.
On the whole, she wants someone who isn’t afraid to push back. She doesn’t want someone she can run over. In fact, in relationships, she might even be willing to be the more submissive one.
Her Venus is next to Neptune, which is a planet of illusions as well as Mercury, which is a planet of communication and variety. When her defenses are down, Minaj can get swept up in a fantasy or taken for a ride by a smooth talker. She’s attracted to someone who can create an elevated experience and who has a way with words. But can they walk their talk? That’s the question.
Nicki Minaj’s Nodes Indicate Some Family Challenges
•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).
Nicki Minaj’s South Node is in Capricorn and her North Node is in Cancer. This chart placement can sometimes indicate someone who has challenges around family, perhaps a parent who is particularly tough that they need to work through things with.
She’s competitive, hardworking, and athletically inclined, which all track with the Capricorn South node.
But where she will grow the most in life is by simplifying, finding a safe space for herself, creating a home that she loves (perhaps out of the public eye). Leaning into the softer, sentimental aspects of herself may be a challenge, but once she finds the safe space to tend to her emotions, she will grow exponentially
Nicki Minaj’s Chart Ruler Is Edgy Uranus
•Your chart ruler is the planet that rules over your rising sign•
With her Uranus-ruled Aquarius rising, Nicki MInaj’s chart ruler is Uranus. In her natal chart, Uranus for is in Sagittarius, in the tenth house of professional success and status. This is evidenced by her massive, global career!
With edgy Uranus as her chart ruler, it’s no surprise she constantly breaks the mold, whether it’s setting records on the music charts, donning pink wigs and anime-style costumes and pushing the envelope in her videos.
There’s no limit to her creativity and ability to shake things up. Sometimes her shock value goes too far, in the minds of some critics, but there is no denying she stands behind her decisions and typically gains more fans in the process!
