When Is Rihanna’s Birthday?

Rihanna’s birthday is February 20.

Rihanna’s Sun Sign Is In Dreamy Pisces

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

Robyn Rihanna Fenty was born on February 20, 1988 in Bridgetown, Barbados. Rihanna’s astrological sign is Pisces.

Pisces is the zodiac sign linked to fame. Co-ruled by Neptune, the planet of glamor and virility and Jupiter, the planet of joy and confidence, Pisces has a way of imbuing magic into the mundane. It’s no wonder Drake once told Rolling Stone that even though they weren’t together, he still considered Rihanna the “ultimate fantasy.”

Rihanna’s Pisces Sun lies in her eleventh house of social networks and fans. She radiates a natural ability to energize and emotionally connect with those around her. Rihanna certainly has one of the most fervent artiste fanbases out there. Pisces is the zodiac sign associated with the ocean. She is the captain of the RihannaNavy after all!

Rihanna’s Rising Sign Is Assertive Aries

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

Rihanna has her rising sign in Aries. Aries risings are rather entrepreneurial and tend to be pioneers in their own right. In addition to her immensely successful music career, Rihanna is also the founder of Fenty Beauty as well as the first black woman to head a luxury brand for LVMH with her fashion house Fenty. Of course, she’s not just the head of a fashion brand, Rihanna is also known for her bold and fun outfits, the ultimate cool girl mixing high fashion with streetwear. 

As the first sign of the zodiac, it’s no secret that Aries likes to be best at everything (she does call the shots shots shots!). At the time of this writing, Rihanna is the second-best-selling female music artist of all time. This bodes well for eager fans awaiting her next album as second-place might as well be a first-place loser for Aries Risings.

Ariana Grande’s Moon Is Also In Fiery Aries

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

The moon reflects our emotional nature. Not only is Rihanna an Aries Rising, she happens to have her moon in Aries, giving her a level of additional layer of comfort around embracing her “Good Girl Gone Bad Girl” side. 

Aries moons love a good party, and certainly would hate for you to stop the music. Always ready for their next adventure, you’ll never be bored as long as you “Shut Up and Drive.” Nothing like a sports game to fan the flames of an Aries moon: Rihanna’s been known to get involved in some courtside basketball trash talk with NBA players.

Love Astrology for Rihanna

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.

Rihanna also happens to have her Venus (love and relating) in passionate Aries, making her a little bit of a romantic who loves the thrill of the chase. With her Venus sitting right by her Aries moon, she’s definitely got love on the brain. 

With all this Aries energy, Rihanna can potentially be rather self-focused, which might make it difficult to see the other side of an argument. With Aries, a rather “hot” and instinctual energy coloring her emotions, she’s learning to channel her anger as part of healthy intimate conflict (no “Rude Boys” here).

Rihanna’s Mars (desire and lust) is in truth-wielding Sagittarius, another dynamic and creative fire sign. Sagittarius is known for being world-travelers, modern-day philosophers and extremely independent. Taking both Venus and Mars into consideration, Rihanna finds comfort in a committed partner who’s a visionary in their own right, allowing for meaningful autonomy and a true balance of equals.

Rihanna’s Chart Ruler Is Driven Mars

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

Rihanna’s chart ruler is Mars, the planet that governs not only her rising sign in Aries, but her Venus and moon as well, making the assertive planet a particularly important player in her chart. 

Rihanna has her Mars in Sagittarius in her ninth house of long-distance travel and foreign cultures. Her music is certainly known worldwide. In other words, Rihanna doesn’t just run this town, she runs the globe. 

On another note, Mars can also reflect a management type of relationship in the chart. Rihanna was initially signed by Rap Mogul and Businessman Jay-Z, who happens to be a Sagittarius Sun. 

Rihanna’s South Node is in Perfectionist 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).

Rihanna also happens to have her South Node (past-life karma) in Virgo and her North Node (destiny) in Pisces

Her South Node is in her sixth house, while her North Node rests in her twelfth house, giving her a karmic energy boost (the sixth house has the energy of Virgo, and the twelfth house has the energy of Pisces). The Virgo-Pisces axis is focused on the relationship between control and surrender, understanding what deserves effort and what needs letting go of.

With a South Node in Virgo, Rihanna is an resilient worker with a relentless drive. Underneath the cool girl, weed-smoking, here-for-a-good-time persona lies a bit of a control freak with preferences. Her North Node in Pisces, however, is in her twelfth house of spirituality and solitude, meaning that curating a work-life balance is absolutely crucial for Rihanna, lest be obligated to the world’s demands of her (like the pressure for more music).

In other words: Rihanna needs to meaningfully recharge to give the fans her most inspired music.

What Mercury in Rihanna’s Birth Chart Means

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

Rihanna has her Mercury in Aquarius in her eleventh house of social alliances. Her Mercury also happens to be retrograde, reflecting a more internal and counter-culture quality to her communication style as Mercury rules dialogue and lyrics.

Aquarius is a sign associated with community and strokes of genius. Rihanna has undoubtedly been a part of some hugely successful musical collaborations; “Umbrella” won Rihana her first Grammy Award for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration, alongside Jay-Z

It’s interesting to note, however, that Rihanna tends to be the “only girl in the world” in these collaborations, emblematic of that natal retrograde Mercury, providing her with a unique perspective.
