When Is Ye/Kanye West’s Birthday?

Ye/Kanye West’s birthday is June 8.

Ye/Kanye West’s Sun Sign Is Versatile Gemini

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

Ye (born Kanye Omari West) was born on June 8, 1977 in Atlanta, Georgia. His astrological sign is Gemini.

As a Gemini sun, Ye is known to switch things up (his name, for starters, as of November 2021). Being an air sign, Gemini flits from one thought to the next, you never know what you’re going to expect from Ye; take one look at his X/Twitter history and you know exactly what we mean. 

Of course, Gemini is more than just Twitter and mutability. As a Gemini Sun, Ye is a lyrical genius. Rolling Stone named him one of the 100 greatest songwriters of all time, in addition to including his first six solo albums on their 500 greatest albums of all-time list.

Gemini is also linked with genre and variety. Ye’s music has been known to span a broad range of styles, from hip hop, synth-pop to gospel.

Ye/Kanye West’s Sun Aspects Confident Jupiter and Mystical Neptune

Speaking of gospel, no surprises that Ye incorporates his spiritual beliefs into his music (Yeezus anyone?). And personal philosophy as Jupiter, the planet of faith, and Neptune, the planet of spirituality, both activate his Sun (identity). Ye once brought Sunday Service to Coachella, gospel choir and all.

The planet Jupiter also signifies faith in oneself. As Kanye has Jupiter on the Sun, the placement can indicate a God complex—an extraordinary amount of confidence bordering on narcissism (Jupiter is known as the King of the Gods in Roman mythology). With Neptune involved, reality can get a little ungrounded, as Neptune is known to add a healthy dose of confusion to the mix in its admirable pursuit for the ideal.

Ye/Kanye’s Moon Is In Imaginative Pisces

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

Ye has his moon in Pisces (much like his ex-wife Kim Kardashian), further emphasizing the ever-present religious and spiritual references in his body of work. Pisces is also deeply connected to youth and innocence. Ye and Kim share four beautiful children, two of whom have names inspired by religious symbolism (Saint and Psalm).

Pisces is also linked to romanticism and fantasy (specifically, his beautiful dark twisted fantasy). Despite the Gemini chaos that might ensue, Ye is actually a romantic at heart with deep sensitivity. Ye was inspired to put out “808s & Heartbreak” after splitting with then fiancée Alexis Phifer and the death of his mother, Donda West.

Ye/Kanye West’s Natal Chart Features A “Fashionable” Stellium

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

Ye’s natal chart shows Venus, Mars and Mercury in Taurus. Three or more planets or placements in the same sign of a chart is called a stellium. While Ye may exhibit very strong Gemini traits via his Sun and Jupiter, he also possesses a significant amount of Taurean energy as well.

Venus is the natural ruler of Taurus, giving Ye’s Taurus stellium extra oomph. Taurus is associated with fashion and beauty, on-brand for the rapper-turned-designer who not only founded his own brand Yeezy, but reinvented and influenced fashion as a whole. 

While Venus may be comfortable in Taurus, Mars finds itself in a bit of a bind in the peace and art loving sign. Mars wants to take charge and instigate where Venus wants to make nice with others.

Ye’s Mercury is an important element here as the planet of communication has authority over his Jupiter/Sun in Gemini configuration. It’s fair to say that Ye imagines himself as a creative messenger (a Mercury archetype) to his social circles (Taurus). 

Love Astrology for Ye/Kanye West: Dynamism Vs. Peace

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.•

As noted above, Ye happens to have both his Mars and Venus in Taurus, a particularly creative and stimulating configuration. Taurus can also embody very stubborn energy, rarely budging on their stance. 

Venus and Mars in Taurus signal a deep appreciation and lust for beauty and sensuality, tracking with Ye’s dating history including Kim Kardashian, Amber Rose, Julia Fox and his now wife, Bianca Censori. 

However, the dynamism of Venus and Mars in Taurus can disrupt the peace that Taurus strives for. While Taurus is looking to steady eddy off into the sunset, Venus and Mars invite in drama and passion, contradictory energies that might have trouble harmonizing in Taurus’ peaceful purview.

Ye/Kanye West’s South Node Is In Heated Aries

•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).

Ye has his South Node (past-life karma) in Aries and his North Node (destiny) in Libra. With a South Node in Aries, Ye has a tendency to lean into his rage, blowing up and lashing out impulsively. Aries is fiery and passionate, moving on from a fight as quickly as it instigates one. 

With a South Node in Aries and his Gemini Jupiter/Sun combination, every thought has the potential to light up a powder keg. Aries and Gemini are rather youthful signs in the zodiac, indicating a propensity for some childish tantrums and knee-jerk reactions. Even though Ye might be a cultural (Gemini) trailblazer (Aries), he has been quoted saying that he is “forever the 35-year-old 5-year-old.” 

However, it’s important to remember that Ye has his North Node in Libra. Think of the North Node like our own personal North Star. With a North Node in Libra, Ye is here to embody Venusian ideals of diplomacy and tact in his pursuit for justice, very much catching more flies with honey (or music) energy.
