George Harrison … Bohemian Piscean
Singer, songwriter, musician, movie producer and gardener George Harrison was born on February 24, 1943 with his Sun and Venus in the artistic and gentle sign of Pisces.
Bohemian individuals always have Aquarius and/or Uranus feature strongly in their birth chart, and George had his Mercury in Aquarius; plus Uranus square his Sun, sextile his Venus, and trine his Neptune. So he was a creative combination of sensitive and spiritual Pisces; mixed with artistic, adventurous and altruistic Aquarian flair. And he was a boho-hippie fashion trendsetter [as shown in the photos above with his first wife, model Patti Boyd].
George was instrumental in introducing Indian music, mysticism and meditation to Western pop culture in the 1960’s. And he was the first person to organize a celebrity benefit concert, gathering his famous friends together to donate their talents for ‘The Concert for Bangladesh’ in 1971. This became the template for benefit concerts in the future like Bob Geldof’s Band Aid in 1984.
He had a very down-to-earth side too. With his Mars in earthy Capricorn, he was a passionate and accomplished gardener. In the 1970’s he took on the mammoth tasks of designing, restoring and re-planting the 36-acre garden at the English manor house, Friar Park [shown above]. He derived great pleasure in growing plants from seed and planting them himself saying “I’m just a gardener basically.”
