Dolly Parton: Here I Am (2019)
To celebrate Dolly’s 50th anniversary of her association with the Grand Ole Opry, the BBC produced this documentary. (And for those who wondered why Kylie Minogue was featured, she is very popular in the UK.)
In fact, it was Kylie who wondered aloud, that with all of Dolly’s lightness, what could the darkness be. That’s when I decided to look at her birth chart.
Dolly’s birth time seems to be accurate. Virgo Rising accounts for the purity that is still visible, even when it is dressed up to look cheap. The ‘act’ has been going on for so long that it has become her public persona (Moon in Virgo in the 12th House). Neptune in Libra in the 1st House completely obscures our vision of the ‘real’ person. But she was always going to succeed at whatever she decided to do, due to the Jupiter T-squares with the Sun/Mercury/Venus in Capricorn, on the one side, and Mars/Saturn in Cancer on the other.
She has two inconjuncts, one involving the Sun and the Moon, the other, Mercury and Uranus/Midheaven. This is why people sense that her privacy is off limits. And it is.
Pluto in Leo is a generational thing, but it is nicely supported in Dolly’s chart by two sextiles, one with Uranus/Midheaven, the other with Neptune. She is ‘nice’, truly.
