So you may have heard of a little K-pop boy band called BTS (if you randomly hear the sounds of screaming 14-year-olds, it's probably from them). I'm an old person, so I didn't come to know of them until last year. I totally get the crazy fandom - I was exactly like them when I was 13 with a little boy band called NSYNC and a curly-haired blond named Justin Timberlake. Most of my friends were Backstreet Boys fans and loved Nick Carter - I think we know who the smart one was!
But even I can admit, as much I still have a soft spot for NSYNC, BTS is like someone took the best parts of every prior boy band to create a super-hybrid boy band 2.0. There's not one weak link, their videos are great, their choreography is great, they're great performers, they're great dancers, their music is catchy, they can sing, they can rap - and in 2 languages! So I bow down to the ARMY in recognition of their supremacy.
They seem to be hitting a rare kind of high, and I believe it was Elton John who said that when you hit this kind of high, it lasts for about 5 years and you can do almost anything and it'll be gold.
So I wanted to check out their astrology. I figured there had to be something interesting there. I wrote an article before about the astrology of fame, relating it to the popularity of the Twilight trio (Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner), and I find that Uranus and Neptune are the super fame-makers. Uranus makes sense since Uranus rules the masses, and fame puts you in front of a lot of people. With Neptune, this is the foggy planet, making people see you as they want to see you (like their soul mate!). And Neptune rules music, so tied to musicians (and tends to be good for actors since they need to put on other faces).
In pulling up the charts for each of the BTS members, all of them have positions at 15+ degrees Capricorn - namely Uranus and Neptune! Most of them were born with Uranus conjunct Neptune in Capricorn. Yoongi has Neptune at 20 and Uranus at 21 degrees Capricorn; J-Hope has Neptune at 22 and Uranus at 24 degrees Capricorn; Jimin has Neptune at 22 and Uranus at 26 degrees Capricorn; Namjoon has Neptune at 20 and Uranus at 22 degrees Capricorn; Jin has Uranus at 16, Neptune at 17, and Venus at 24 degrees Capricorn; Jungkook has Neptune at 27 degrees (he's the only one with just one planet, being the baby); and V has a loadup in Capricorn with Sun (7 degrees), Mars (22 degrees), Neptune (24 degrees), Mercury (26 degrees), and Uranus (29 degrees) - talk about a super Capricorn! V might be able to make this ride last a little longer.
Transit (moving) Pluto is conjuncting these points for them now, and started to hit some of these points last year. Once Jupiter hit Scorpio (in 2017), Jupiter began a period of 5 years making positive aspects (kinda linking up to what Elton said!). Next year, we're going to have a Capricorn mashup with Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto all coming together in Capricorn (and Mars for part of the time too, and some of the eclipses). That's going to happen conjunct much of their Capricorn energy, so if possible, they may get even bigger! Plus Transit Neptune will be sextile (positive aspect) most of these points as well.
I find it interesting that natally, they all seem to have a lot of Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, and Capricorn. They also all seem to have some an important Saturn, Moon, or Aries/Mars in their charts. Wonder if the people who put them together looked at their charts! There's just a lot of similar energy. The themes of their music make a lot of sense with Libra and Scorpio (governing others and our connections to them), as well as the Saturn/Moon/Aries/Mars (prompting more reflection on the self/emotions/responsibilities). There's also not a hint of toxic masculinity in their charts - how refreshing!
I'm sure the kids want to see their charts with a little analysis, so here we go:
