* Beccy Cole has released eight albums, with three reaching the ARIA Albums Chart top 40: Little Victories (20 January 2003), Preloved (3 September 2010) and Songs & Pictures (10 October 2011). Cole has received nine Golden Guitar trophies at the CMAA Country Music Awards of Australia.

In July 2012 Cole revealed that she is a lesbian on ABC-TV series, Australian Story. In October 2013 she was the inaugural ambassador for the Adelaide-based Feast Festival and in the following month she presented her show, The Queer of Country.

Cole reveals in her autobiography that she was born at 11:05 pm at Glenelg Hospital in Adelaide. She thus has the first degree of Cancer on her Ascendant ruled by the Moon in Cancer on her South Node in the first house.

Jaime King (American actress and model)

* A successful model, Jaime King was discovered at age 14 in 1993 and appeared in Vogue, Mademoiselle and Harper's Bazaar, among other fashion magazines. From 1998, she moved into acting, taking small film roles. Her first major role was in Pearl Harbor (2001) and her first starring movie role was in Bulletproof Monk (2003). She has since appeared as a lead in other films, such as Sin City (2005) and My Bloody Valentine 3D (2009) and is currently starring in the television series Hart of Dixie. She also voiced the role of Aurra Sing on Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

King has said in an interview that she has Virgo rising. A speculative time of 3:05pm puts mid Virgo (15 degrees) on the Ascendant of her chart.

Rose McGowan (American actress, model and singer)

* "Appearing as a cross between Betty Boop's evil sister and a very curvaceous Hell's Angel, actress Rose McGowan made an undeniably distinct impression on Hollywood in the late '90s. With her sharp tongue and brash sensuality, McGowan has been a source of both titillation and discomfort to an industry that still hasn't quite figured out what to do with women who are both unapologetically smart and sexual." This excerpt from McGowan's biography on AllMovie neatly encapsulates her unaspected conjunction of Uranus and Venus in Libra. This conjunction makes a Grand Air Trine with her Ascendant and MC.

McGowan was in a very public three and a half year relationship (1998-2001) with rock musician Marilyn Manson (see his chart). Her MC conjuncts his 7th cusp and her Uranus-Venus conjunction trines his 7th cusp.

Philip Levine, 1928–2015 (Pulitzer Prize-winning American poet)

* Philip Levine died last Saturday morning (14 February 2015). I cannot find a precise time of birth for him, yet the Pulitzer Prize-winning poet writes in his poem "Let Me Begin Again" that he was born at night. A speculative birth time of 9 p.m. puts poetic Neptune at the end of the 12th House on the Ascendant alongside the Moon just into the 1st House.

Burke has been described as "a man who could probably scare away a rottweiler just by looking at it."
