Manson and Bowie Astrology
David Bowie and Marilyn Manson. Do these two have anything in common besides the fact that Marilyn Manson is a huge fan of David Bowie? (Marilyn Manson's glam rock album "Mechanical Animals" was inspired by Bowie's "Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars" and Manson was said to have listened to "Diamond Dogs" by Bowie repeatedly while recording his most recent album, "Eat Me Drink Me.") Yes. In fact, they share the same sun and moon sign. (Both have a sun in Capricorn with a moon in Leo.) Another interesting fact is that David Bowie was inspired by George Orwell, creating an album (Diamond Dogs) based on his famous tome, "1984." George Orwell was Bowie's opposite sign, Cancer. (Orwell's moon was in cancer as well as his sun.) Opposites attract! (And in the case of Manson and Bowie: "sames!")
And with Manson another case of opposites attracting: both of the people that Manson got his name from -Marilyn Monroe and Charles Manson- had Aquarius moons, the opposite of his Leo Moon! Marilyn Monroe was a Gemini with an Aquarius moon and Charles Manson a Scorpio with an Aquarius moon.
