“Sometimes it’s hard to be a woman giving all your love to just one man”
Tammy Wynette, Country Music Singer-Songwriter (Sun in Taurus, Moon in Capricorn)
Earthy. Soulful. The ‘First Lady’ of country music, with a penchant for singing about those country themes…..divorce, loneliness and relationships!
Ms Wynette had a background of hard work in her early years, doing everything from factory work to hairdressing. Capricorn ruled by Saturn is the great teacher. Moon in Capricorn tends to a feeling of great shyness in youth, with a seriousness to match. Discipline also comes with Moon in Saturn – a need to always be doing something worthwhile with their time.
Wanting to never be without a trade, she trained as a hairdresser so that she would always have a job to fall back on. Great was her faith in herself, in those early days! Moon in Capricorn is stunted somewhat by youth, coming into its own in mature years with great ambition to achieve or make a mark on the world, so as not to be forgotten.
The Moon in Capricorn coupled with the Sun in Taurus can sway between the coldness of the Saturnian Moon, and the warmth and generosity of the Taurean sun. Tammy Wynette was a shrewd business woman with steely guts to succeed in the music industry, coupled with a warmth and understanding coming through loud and clear in her music.
Married five times, she certainly had enough emotional material to channel into her music. She used her innate discipline to craft earthy emotional songs that spoke to the multitude in their sadness. An amazing life and a beautiful example of this Sun/Moon combination.
