Zodiac Mixtape: The Soul Version


Soul (n) : The animating and vital principle in humans, credited with the faculties of thought, action, and emotion and often conceived as an immaterial entity. (2) A strong, deeply felt emotion conveyed by a speaker, a performer, or an artist.

Yesterday, I was reflecting on what I wrote in my original “Zodiac Mixtape” post. I ‘d mentioned walking into Border’s and questioning what demographic the makers of the “Cosmic Grooves” CD’s were attempting to appeal to. Also, my opinions  and frustrations regarding who I thought they were excluding.

As a result, I gave birth to the hip hop version of the zodiac mixtape. In honor of the Sagittarian penchant for expansion, I am now attempting to make sure all of you lovers of soulful music get your fill.

An Astrological chart is very similar to a musical symphony, with our Sun signs serving as our “conductors”. Our task is to make sure that we employ our personal conductors to establish rhythm and harmony within our lives.

Although our Sun sign may be our loudest, most visible instrument, sometimes we will have to yield to our other resources to ensure that the music flows.

For those of you whom are familiar with your birth charts, a 24 hour “solo”, by our Sun is rarely, if ever, entirely productive. Sometimes we need to give our Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars a chance to play. Let Jupiter rock out with Saturn, Uranus and Pluto a little bit. When it’s all said and done, I think we’ll appreciate the complexity of our life orchestra.

Without further delay, I bring you the soul version of the Zodiac Mixtape. Enjoy.
