My daughter Leah, 15 and I love music, pop music and classical music. She listened to classical music only till she was about 5 when she started to learn to play piano. But she also listened to the Beatles at that time as I was huge Beatles fan. She turned me on to 22-year-old British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran’s music for over a year now. She has learned to play very interesting melodious versions of his hit songs on the electric piano.
Ed has come from relative obscurity here in North America with his first hit being the A team, Give Me love and Lego House, with Harry Potter star Rupert Grint playing Ed in the music video. He is currently on tour with Taylor Swift, the American country music cross over singer. He was nominated for a Grammy and sang with Sir Elton John on the broadcast, he is now mainstream in his popularity.
The flaming red-haired, bed head tattooed singer was formerly homeless. He is a high school dropout and has been recording and producing his own songs since he was 14. He seems to be the most down to earth unpretentious person you would want to meet, with a sweet voice, and an amazing range of song styles, he writes very beautiful lyrics and plays in a very simple folk singer style on a 3/4 size beat-up guitar.
He is in TORONTO for two days of concerts June 14 & 15.
I am really enthralled with his music. I play it for adults who wouldn’t normally be exposed to it and they all love it too.
I feel Ed is the perfect example of the New Masculine, he is definitely masculine but with a very sensitive, emotional, tender heart-felt empathetic side. His Feminine side is very well-developed so he is balanced. So lets check out his Astrology chart.

ED SHEERAN is an AQUARIAN born February 17 1991 in Halifax Great Britain. I have no birth time so use Noon for a public celebrity.
His Sun at 28 degrees Aquarius shows an unconventional, strong individual, independent, stubborn, a natural leader, but not an egotistical one, with high-minded ideals, a natural rebel he follows his own style. He is very bright, intellectual, analytical, a vessel of higher consciousness. Likes new technology, building structures, feels like he is part of the world tribe.
The Moon representing his mother, who he is very close to, was in early ARIES at noon. But it could also have been in late Pisces is he has been born after midnight. The Moon is super important as it is the emotions, the unconscious, the feelings, instincts. I feel that he was born in the night and his Moon is in Pisces. It is the Moon at its most sensitive, intuitive, creative, spiritual, dreamy, and he has songs about drinking and Pisces is the sign of addictions. I’m not saying he is an alcoholic I’m just saying he is very sensitive and predisposed to having addictive types of behaviors, and he loves cats, very feminine felines.
Mercury is in Aquarius so apply his communications style, thinking and reasoning and to his Aquarian self-expression.
VENUS is in PISCES at 23 degrees this could also be where most of his creativity as a singer-songwriter comes from and his very Feminine energy. Pisces is the most spiritual sign, and rules all creative pursuits. Venus in Pisces people are largely reclusive and usually prefer to be anywhere but on the world’s stage. Spiritual, sensitive, imaginative, the Give Me love video shows a woman transformed into a CUPID angel. He is so emotive, an empath. I have to mention my fave song of Ed’s is SMALL BUMP, where he totally understands the feminine point of view.
Mars is in GEMINI so he is a fast thinker, talker, He raps very quickly. He is diverse in his styles, he is upbeat, childlike, he loves to talk and communicate. I am sure he can be indecisive. This gives him charm galore, he is a pixie, with an impish grin.
JUPITER is RETROGRADE in LEO at 4 degrees
So this is why Ed is a performer, a strong fiery, passionate leader, this part of him expands on stage and in public, but he is also shy, and UN-egotistical. He has a big heart, which he wears on his sleeve. He loves children, is an actor playing roles. He loves cats- Leo the Lion. He loves to travel and learn through experience. Jupiter is opposite Saturn indicating he is nicely balanced, he works hard and plays hard.
SATURN represent the father, structure, karma. Saturn is at 1 degree Aquarius which it traditionally rules along with Uranus as modern ruler. This makes Ed a serious rebel. One whose task it is to raise people’s awareness. He will not be labeled.
URANUS at 12 degrees Capricorn is conjunct NEPTUNE at 15 and this is a generational configuration.
Everyone born in the early 1990s has this aspect. It symbolizes revolutionizing big business, yet being part of it or at least understanding how it works but getting it to serve the collective and more spiritual goals. Ed has CHIRON the wounded healer opposite Neptune which is a transpersonal placement. He is a world server and a healer. Chiron in Cancer symbolizes a wounded child who is insecure, about home, safety, rejected by his parents.
PLUTO is at 20 degrees SCORPIO
and square to his SUN. Ed’s chart is very simple with not very many difficult aspects. Although this one is. Pluto is the Soul the Unconscious, the shadow, power, control, secrets. He is very much acting from his soul’s urgings. IN SCORPIO this is the MOST EMOTIONALLY INTENSE and SOULFUL as Pluto is the Modern ruler of the 8th sign of sex, power, money, etc. Life is not easy with this aspect especially when unconscious. But he seems to be very strong and aware and this deep soulful aspect permeates his vitality and life force, the Sun.
Ed’s North Node is in Capricorn at 27 degrees, he is ambitious for worldly fame. he is a very hard worker, patient, persistent, focussed, practical, he is goal oriented. Capricorn North Node’s don’t usually get their fame until they are older and wiser as Saturn the planet rules it and he is all about maturity. But he is an old soul already.
HIs SOUTH NODE is in CANCER directly opposite, not shown in the chart. this symbolizes past lives, unconscious memories. He must have been a woman in a past life, a mother, a nurturer, very tender, sensitive, compassionate and he has carried this over. He needs to find fulfillment in his career.
Ed has a lovely GRAND TRINE the blue triangle in his chart between Chiron in Cancer, Pluto in Scorpio and Venus in Pisces. This makes the planets energy blend together harmoniously. A sweet sensitive creative yet soulful power of caring.
Ed’s career started to break out with NEPTUNE Crossing his Sun about 2 years ago.
The North Node just crossed his Pluto within the last 6 months making anyone a favorite at that time.
URANUS AND PLUTO are squaring and conjunct his natal Uranus now with NEPTUNE INVOLVED AS WELL.
Again millions of young people are undergoing this very same aspect. It is a world-changing, revolutionizing aspect. When one becomes famous for their soul talents they embody the direction of all the people in that age group. As the Beatles did in the 60;s or Elvis did in the 50’s. If you are born in this age group and need help figuring it out, I am here to advise you.
Saturn will conjunct his Pluto in 2014 and that will bring major rewards. He will be lauded and taken seriously. success is sometimes difficult to manage. This will be a testing time for him. Can be some temptations there.
So Ed’s greatest world shifting is happening now and for the next 2 years. Not that it will be over then, he is very talented. 2015 will also be his best year in 12 when Jupiter conjuncts his natal Jupiter then.
I think he is super talented for such a young man. If you haven’t heard his music check it out. He has a number of albums out.
