Crystal Visions Tour
Stevie Nicks by Philip Brown

As she experiences her second Saturn return, at the edge of 59, singer Stevie Nicks has launched her retrospective Crystal Visions tour. I saw her last week at the Greek Theater in L.A., where she performed — along with opening act Chris Isaac — to an enthusiastic, multi-generational, sold-out crowd.

The second Saturn return — when Saturn completes its second complete transit around the horoscope — causes one to look back and assess life. Where have I been? How did I get here? How did I become the person I am today? The past becomes invested with more than just memories. It is a place where we have arced through time on the soul’s journey to now. There is a sense of wanting to feel complete and whole. Looking back at one’s life is part of the process of seeking wholeness.

Stevie Nicks spoke several times of her own past, her cycle of becoming, and she announced from the outset of the concert that it was intended to be a culmination of her work as a musical artist. Large screen projections throughout the concert showed drawings from her journals, symbolic art (with lots of wings, as befits a Gemini), and — during “Landslide” — a series of personal photographs which spanned her life from birth to the present. She took great care in introducing her band and backup singers, explaining how each was personally connected to her own life.

For many Baby Boomers in the audience, there was a sense of nostalgia in hearing “Rhiannon” or “Crystal Visions”—they both took me back to my own simpler life in the 1970s.

But there was also in Stevie Nicks’ concert a strong feeling of security in the present. This was the third time I’d seen her perform — once with Fleetwood Mac and once before as a solo performer. I felt this was by far her strongest performance. She still sings with power, authenticity, and authority. Her Capricorn Moon in the 10th house conjunct the MC has enabled her to work hard, endure in a tough business, and age wonderfully in the public eye (she also has a powerful Venus, which can give a person musical talent as well as physical beauty). Her very public Moon rules her natal 4th house, her roots, and on stage Stevie Nicks unfolds both inner beauty and bewitching darkness. She always ends her concerts by singing, “Beauty and the Beast.”

Her concert was very Neptunian — Piscean-ly artistic. As I wrote in a profile of her in my book, Neptune is in her 6th house and it rules her 12th house. She works (6th house) at projecting those dreams (12th house) on stage and is intensely charismatic. Her trademark gypsy sorceress costume changes — flowing black, gold, and white — helped maintain the illusion of a musical dream.

Stevie Nicks has Aries rising (born 5/26/1948; Phoenix, Arizona; 3:02 AM; source: AFA Bulletin). A pose she frequently adopts on stage when she is not singing is facing the audience with her head down, softly stomping her feet, like a ram.

She explained at one point during the concert that she had never married or had children because music was her life and music is what she had to give. The closest major aspect in her chart is a tight square between Neptune and Venus, which gives her a love of dreaming and a fairy tale quality. This love of idealized beauty may also explain why she has never married or had children. Her music allows her to express her own “crystal vision” of pure beauty without the necessity of having to deal with messy mortal relationships.

Saturn, the ruler of her 10th house of career (and also of her Moon), is in her 5th house of creativity and children. So, in a way, the songs she has created in a 40-year musical career are her children.
