When Madonna rose to fame in the early-to-mid eighties, very few purveyors of pop music believed that she had the talent or ability to sustain a career over the course of the decade, let alone over a few albums.
Madonna makes a good case study for astrology for three reasons: one, her ability to transform herself and her constant progression into new and varied terrain; two, her honesty and self-transparency; and three, her ability to mediate the gods and goddesses, or more appropriately, the archetypal forces, for an entire culture.
Madonna is in the long lineage that would include Elvis Presley and the Rolling Stones, entertainers that were able to arbitrate the erotic and taboo elements for a society and contain them for generations.
