Boxcar Willie, 1931–1999 (American country music singer)

* Country music legend, Boxcar Willie, sold more than 100 million recordings, profiting from his unaspected and tight triple-conjunction of Neptune, Venus and the Sun. Born Lecil Travis Martin, he took his nickname from a boxcar, the North American term for an enclosed railroad freight car typically with a square end. Fittingly, Boxcar Willie had a distinctive Grand Square or "box" pattern in his chart, plus "iron horse" planet Jupiter unaspected in the Sagittarius decan and duad of Leo. Not to mention the Uranus-Moon conjunction in the Sagittarius decan of Aries forming the handle of his Bucket shape. A strong Jupiter and a prominence of Sagittarius can indicate the potential for country music stardom.



Boxcar Willie, born as Lecil Travis Martin (September 1, 1931 – April 12, 1999), was an American country music singer, who sang in the "old-time hobo" music style, complete with dirty face, overalls, and a floppy hat. "Boxcar Willie" was originally a character in a ballad he wrote, but he later adopted it as his own stage name.
