Heavy Metal Astrology: Astrology & The Voice

Everything is made up of energy, and that is especially so when it comes to the voice. The voice is merely a combination of energies that are being projected outwardly, starting from the larynx, carrying sound and air up the throat and out through the mouth by means of the diaphragm. In my opinion, the basic timbre and sound of a voice, astrologically speaking, is made up of 5 different parts, and they go as follows:

  • 01. The sun: The sun is representative of your projected personality; it’s the energy at the forefront of your voice.
  • 02. The moon: The moon is representative of emotional expression; it’s the softer underlayer of your voice.
  • 03. The ascendant: The ascendant is representative of your projected image; it’s the topmost layer of your voice.
  • 04. Mercury: Mercury is representative of speech and communication itself; it has the greatest influence over vocal tone and timbre.
  • 05. 3rd House Cusp (Sign & Ruling Planet): The sign and planetary ruler on your 3rd house cusp dictates how you express yourself verbally.

When it comes to vocal tone, each sign has its own specific set of characteristics, but the sound can be determined by its elemental grouping. Although each sign is distinct in its own way, all signs within a certain element have the same basic sound structure.

  • 01. THE FIRE SIGNS: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius | Sound: Low tones | Timbre: Raspy | Manner of vocal expression: Passionate 
  • 02. THE EARTH SIGNS: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn | Sound: Low tones | Timbre: Gritty | Manner of vocal expression: Practical 
  • 03. THE AIR SIGNS: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius | Sound: Mid-range tones | Timbre: Wispy | Manner of vocal expression: Cerebral 
  • 04. THE WATER SIGNS: Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces | Sound: Higher tones | Timbre: Fluid | Manner of vocal expression: Emotional 

The combination of the five astrological vocal points make up the physiological mechanism of the voice. If you have a preponderance of any of the elemental energies listed above, this is how you will more than likely come across verbally. In order to determine the full spectrum of sounds contained within the voice, it is prudent that you have an accurate birth time, because knowing the ascendant is crucial to this technique.
