Mars In Leo, A Dramatic Soul…

Born Édith Giovanna Gassion, Piaf was a much loved French singer, icon and international star. Born into poverty in Paris and discovered by a cabaret owner age 20, her mournful, haunting ballads are said to reflect the lonely despair of her early childhood…

Known as la môme Piaf or the waif sparrow, Piaf’s Moon in Gemini might explain comparisons to a little bird and mercurial appearance. Mars in Leo meant she was creative, confident and passionate performer. With Venus in Capricorn and Scorpio rising, it’s no wonder she looked so captivating in her trademark – the black dress. Piaf performed throughout her career wearing exclusively black sheath dresses so the audience would focus on her music and not her appearance. Little did she know she was one of the original champions of the LBD!
