Aretha Franklin Farewell

Aretha Franklin.

For some reason I can’t get her voice out of my head.

When she died a couple of days ago, I was of course reminded of her music.

Just like everybody else.

I heard her songs being played non-stop on the radio, in stores and restaurants, wherever I went.

Just like everybody else.

And just like everybody else, I found myself remembering where I was, and who I was with, when I first heard her amazing voice caress particular songs so deliciously.

I heard the tributes on the radio. I read the stories in Rolling Stone and the daily newspapers.

But there was one story that really struck me in particular. I don’t remember who told it, but it was during an interview of reminiscences about the Queen of Soul.Aretha Franklin Horoscope

At any rate, this person was recounting a visit to Aretha Franklin in her dressing room, just after she had completed a performance.

She was radiant, and apparently pleased with what she had been able to share with the audience earlier that evening.

And there, on the counter in here dressing room, was a big pile of $100 bills.

Aretha Franklin, its seems, like Chuck Berry and many other performers of her day, insisted that she be paid in cash when she performed.

Before she went on stage.

In $100 bills.

Money In The Horoscope

Hearing that story, and imagining the huge pile of $100 bills, was a great experience.

It helped put the power of the great lady into perspective.

But it also reminded me of Aretha Franklin’s horoscope.

Her chart showed considerable musical talent, of course. She was, after all, a truly spectacular performer who never stopped honing her craft.

But her horoscope also showed a lot of money potential, too.

Making History, Music, and Money

And, it seems, she had a real knack for activating the money planets in her horoscope at just the right time for maximum financial benefit.

Like the time Jerry Wexler took her Muscle Shoals, Alabama for a history-making recording session.

It was an amazing event musically. But it was also amazing astrologically. You can read about it HERE.
