The horoscope of the Barbie Doll

[MOV=[A href=””]

Barbara (Barbie) Millicent Roberts, was born at 9am, on the morning of March 9th, 1959, at the New York Toy Fair. That makes Barbie a year younger than that other famous, New York blonde, Madonna. The horoscope of Barbie, the grandmother of all fashion dolls…..


Barbie was born on the day of the New Moon, in 19 degrees Pisces. Isn’t it fascinating that the big battle with the rival company MGA over the incredibly popular Bratz dolls, has been taking place while Uranus has been transitting over this conjunction? (see this earlier article on the Bratz horoscope) A Sun/Moon conjunction in the horoscope of a new product, will always make that product a little vulnerable. Why? Well it’s a bit like having all one’s eggs in one basket. When transits hit, they really hit hard, there is no way out of it. However, it really does look as though Barbie has come out on top, and as Uranus moves out of the conjunction with the New Moon, it could reflect a new start, a re-launch, a (dare I mention it) face-lift. I feel that Saturn’s current transit in opposition to the Sun and Moon in Barbie’s horoscope, also reflects a need to re-assess the market potential, as well as the look of the product, Barbie.

The horoscope of the Barbie Doll: With Taurus rising, Barbie is quite a sensual girl at heart, aware of and not above using her feminine charms to get what she want out of life. Though with chart ruler Venus, in detriment and conjunct with the South Node, her expectations are probably not very high. Feminists despise Barbie, not only is she considered shallow, but she also promotes an unrealistic body image. A 1965 Barbie doll called “Slumber Party Barbie” came complete with a liitle book: How to Loose Weight: Don’t Eat”. Barbie, is born with Mars square the Sun and Moon, and she is controversial.

The horoscope of the Barbie Doll: Barbie is also a fun loving extrovert. Her hobbies include, horse-riding, driving fast cars, shopping, walking her dog, etc. etc. etc. I don’t think she ever reads a book…. Seriously though, we are talking product here , and Jupiter in Sagittarius also reflects how Barbie has “taken over the world”. Both planet and sign are connected with long distance travel. Jupiter also rules the Sun/Moon conjunction and Jupiter has masses of essential dignity. Interesting to note that Barbie has direct links to Germany, where her spiritual sister, Bild Lilli, was born. Without Bild Lilli there might never have been a Barbie. Saturn conjunct with the ninth house, in its own sign Capricorn, also points to a structural link overseas.

The horoscope of the Barbie doll: Barbie also has Pluto trine Saturn, and Saturn square Mercury in her horoscope. So don’t mess with this girl or she’ll show you the door. There is an agressive confidence here, both in marketing the product and in protecting the franchise.

The horoscope of the Barbie doll: In 2010 however, Pluto will start to make it’s conjunction with Saturn in Barbie’s horoscope. Something must be brewing within Mattel and its future plans for the doll must be under review. Something deep… a burial??? Could it be…the death …or the resurrection of Barbie?

Look out for Barbie in the news in 2010 and remember you read about it first, here on 🙂
