If one sleuths into the natal planets of Sir Winston Churchill, it may be possible to discover innate art interests if not talents therein for he is known as having been an "avid amateur painter" of some repute. Obviously, art-related participants from the panoply of planetary actors include Venus, Neptune, Jupiter, Moon and Pluto providing wells of creativity, plus, we cannot discount ideals and new ideas via innovative Uranus which, in order to be realized, need realistic Saturn's sense of form to serve as a vessel into which inspired ideas may be poured.
Born during a Saturn-Uranus opposition on November 30, 1874, baby Winston had Saturn in Aquarius trine his Mars-Jupiter conjunction in Venus-ruled Libra, plus, from Libra to Leo, he sported a Mars-Uranus sextile, an aspect of objectivity and opportunity.
And naturally, placements in zodiacal signs such as Libra and Pisces are immediate suspects of artfulness and point specifically toward sign rulers Venus, Jupiter, and Neptune and any aspects between them. No Pisces placements for him; however, his Venus in Jupiter-ruled Sagittarius provided sensitivity, idealism, and an open nature. Additionally, the planet of motivation, energy, and action - Mars - is a necessary ingredient for any project (artful or otherwise) to begin, and hopefully, to carry through to completion. Sir Winston's Mars in Libra suggests refinement and a desire for partnerships.
And so when it comes to Winston the Artist, the evidence of creativity mounts! See if you agree by checking out his A-rated natal horoscope linked, above.
