Quand is a song # 6 from the album Monkey Me (2012).

Lyrics of Mylène Farmer. Music, arrangements, programming, keyboards and production: Laurent Boutonnat.

On November 23, 2012 TF1 announced on twitter: “General alert: Mylène Farmer is preparing a surprise for you! See you on @wat_tv at 4pm to find out! #MyleneFarmer # TF1 #WAT”.

At 4 p.m., a video lyrics of the unreleased song, Quand . A video produced by François Hanss (that Very Hanss behind her other legendary videos)

Quand (When) can be considered as a promotional single for the album Monkey Me which will be released on December 3, 2012 (after the first single extracted In the shade on radios and available digitally since October 22).

The song was not sent to radios nor the “clip” to televisions. It is not available for download before the album is released. No promotional or commercial support. A promotion exclusively limited to the internet. Never been sang live either.

For Quand, Mylène had initially had the idea of ​​a viral video created by an anonymous person who would have been posted on the net without any information. The record company preferred, on a suggestion from Pascal Nègre, to instead use a video lyrics. Source: “Au fil des mots” – Editions Gründ

The song’s lyrics are somewhat ambiguous and that’s how she prefers them once more….you can paint your own picture and I bet we all come up with something very different. 😃 I am personally absolutely OK with that – in fact, bring it on Mylene! Bump it up a natch – I can take more mysteries, more hints, more unanswered questions, more flirtatious foreplays with words and enigmatic spleens…I am even ok with all the Saturnian, Mercurian and Plutonian

It is a rare occasion when Mylene mentions the planet in the context of (possibly?) her own astrological chart. “Mes mois sont de saturne” (my months from the Saturn) MORE ON MYELENE ASTROLOGY INFO HERE

I will be happy to jump onto such an opportunity and talk about Mylene’s astrological portrait. Are you with me? And as a bonus, I will include my collection of the photos of Mylene’s life companions, collaborators, family and friends. Can you name them? Comment below – let’s have fun!😍

Here are some character traits based on Mylène Farmer’s birth chart. This description is far from being comprehensive, but it can shed light on her personality as well as her inner world, which is I hope as interesting for the fans as it is for me!

When interpreting a natal chart, the best method is to start gradually from general features to specific ones. Thus, there is usually a plan to be followed, from the overall analysis of the chart and its structure to the description of its different character traits.

In this article I give you a very high level overview. Please bare in mind that there is a lot more to any astrological analysis than can fit to one page.

In Mylène Farmer chart, the ten main planets are distributed as follows:

The three most important planets: Pluto, Mercury and Saturn.(ding-ding-ding!) Something tells me she is well aware of this very information I am sharing with you right now.

With Pluto as a dominant planet in your chart, you are a magnetic and mighty person, like the Scorpio sign ruled by this planet, who needs to exert pressure on others in order to “test” them. You are always ready to evolve, to risk destruction for reconstruction – including your own – to live more intensely while imposing your secret authority on things and on people you encounter. Note the influence is almost always in the subconscious (“hidden”) level.

You may come across as unusual and somewhat strange but actually you only follow your instinct, you test people out, and you like to exert your power simply because your vital energy is too intense to remain inside. You are inclined to be passionate, with hidden (often subconscious) motivations. You are sometimes misunderstood but one of your great Plutonian assets is to go successfully through each life ordeal with ever growing strength.

With Mercury among your dominant planets, you are certainly cerebral, nervous, swift, curious, quick-witted, and you love to communicate. Your psychological pattern is intellectual, all the more so since Mercury is important, with its whole set of assets but also of weaknesses, obviously.

Your sensitivity, emotions, and heart’s impulses give precedence to thinking, which can lead people to believe that you are a playful and witty often intellectualizing situations and juggling with words (haha! Haven’t you notice?) and numbers at the same time as passing by other aspects of things which many would care about. Of course, it is said that cats always land on their feet – this is your Mercurian strength and your trump card!

Your weakness lies in your nervousness, and you may miss your goal because of your “over-intellectualization” that may be detrimental to other kind of energies such as instinct, spontaneity, heart, sensitivity, etc. Poor Mylene, being a double-Virgo (both Sun and the time of birth was in the Virgo when she entered this world), all the Mercurian qualities are doubled including restlessness and inability to remain still both intellectually and physically…it’s a tough aspect which often becomes “bored” (familiar phrase?) if not mentally stimulated.

Saturn is part of your dominant planets: among the facets of your character, you have a grave and serious side, wise and somewhat severe, since your concentration can be powerful to the detriment of carelessness.

It is true that the Saturnian, who is fond of time, effort, asceticism, rigor and sobriety, may have popularity issues. Nevertheless, honesty and straightforwardness, reliability, as well as slow, wise and deep mental process, although not very visible qualities, eventually become noticed and appreciated. Saturnians’ second part of life is usually easier and more fulfilling.

Like the Jupiterian, your Saturnian facet prompts you to seek the essential, security, and longevity. However, the difference is that you will never give priority to wealth or “the bigger, the better” philosophy for the sake of power. Saturn, like Jupiter, symbolizes social integration, and it is usually considered positive to have a harmonic Jupiter and Saturn in one’s chart because of their social adaptation capacities.

Your vulnerability lies in your too serious and austere side, which may lead to unwanted loneliness and affective frustration. This generally does not last because Saturnians often hide deep down a golden heart that ends up revealing itself…

In your natal chart, the three most important signs – according to criteria mentioned above – are Virgo, Libra and Leo (followed by Capricorn and Taurus). In general, these signs are important because your Ascendant or your Sun is located there. At the glance, there is also an obvious domination of the Earth element which is very fortunate grounding influence on somewhat nervous and anxious Mercurian flair.

Virgo, associated with perfectionism, numbers and reason, is among your dominant signs: you inherit its sense of responsibility and tidiness, a clear mind, an unfailing logic, as well as a need to be useful and to fulfil your task to the best of your abilities. Obviously, people may think that you are too modest or reserved, suspicious or pessimistic because of your exceedingly critical mind, but aren’t logic and wisdom great qualities? Of course, they are. Moreover, you keep your feet on the ground, you never behave irrationally, and you are helpful and hardworking – what more can you ask for?!

With Libra as a dominant sign in your birth chart, you love to please, to charm, and to be likeable. Moreover, you are naturally inclined towards tolerance and moderation, as well as elegance and tact, as if you were meant to please! Of course, you always find complainers who criticize your lack of authenticity or of courage and your half-heartedness, but your aim is to be liked, and in this field, you are an unrivalled champion!

With Leo as a dominant sign, you naturally shine brightly. Your dignity, your sense of honor, and your generosity can almost turn you into a solar mythological hero, a knight or a lord from the ancient times. People may blame you for your selfishness, your pride or your somewhat loud authority, but if you are self-confident, kind-hearted and strong-willed, it surely makes up for your little flaws, as long as they remain moderate… With so many major planets in Leo you are destined to be on teh public eye and to be admired and to be a public figure. Well, it’s a Fate for better of worse…Maybe I should do the synergy chart with Laurent one of these days?

The 2nd, 1st and 12th houses are the most prominent ones in your birth chart. From the analysis of the most tenanted houses, the astrologer identifies your most significant fields or spheres of activity. They deal with what you are experiencing – or what you will be brought to experience one day – or they deal with your inner motivations.

The 2nd house is among your three most tenanted houses: life’s material or tangible aspects – with everything that is implied in terms of security, appetite for life, desire for possession – are deep-seated and you can never be content with living on love and fresh air. On a more abstract level, you may have similar feelings regarding relationships: possessiveness in the worst cases, but also faithfulness and durability.

With a dominant 1st house, your magnetism is powerful, and your individuality as well as your willpower are out of the ordinary. You are a determined, strong-willed, and assertive person, with this relative criterion at least.

It is likely that you never go unnoticed when you are in a crowd or a in reunion: an important 1st house suggests that you are a charismatic person with above average vital energy, especially when the Sun is present in this sector.

Your personal interests are always important, and you never forget them, which doesn’t mean that you are self-centered, but only that you behave according to what is in harmony with your deep nature!

The 12th house is emphasized in your chart: like the 8th house, it has a rich and complex meaning. Although its bad reputation is likely to scare most readers in the first place – it is indeed the house of hidden or isolated places, of solitude, of ordeals or enemies – it can also mean that a part of your life is very deep and intense. If your achievements are not visible in the public eye, you may fulfil yourself in a different but equally important way: you may be involved in secret activities, humanitarian causes, and projects in favor of disadvantaged people. You are likely to work in quiet and remote places. In many cases, you will gain from these hidden activities as many treasures as people who have a more public destiny. It may be because you sublimate your work, or only because you successfully carry out your task within your environment.

After this paragraph about dominant planets, of Mylène Farmer, here are the character traits that you must read more carefully than the previous texts since they are very specific: the texts about dominant planets only give background information about the personality and remain quite general: they emphasize or, on the contrary, mitigate different particularities or facets of a personality. A human being is a complex whole and only bodies of texts can attempt to successfully figure out all the finer points.

The Moon in Libra and in House 2: her sensitivity

You are sensitive to beauty, Mylène Farmer, and your emotional reactions are often of an aesthetical order because, even in the appearances, balance and harmony are necessary for your wellbeing. You easily identify with others; you have a talent for emphasizing their best qualities and you solve their problems with tact and diplomacy. You endlessly weigh the pros and the cons, and you constantly try to please your interlocutors. In doing so, you may develop a strong dependency because you need their approval too much. It is difficult for you and your entourage to deal with your indecisiveness because it inclines you towards contemplation more than towards creation and you are tempted to procrastinate unless you try to charm others into doing things for you. But as long as harmony prevails… isn’t it what matters?

Material affairs can have an importance disconnected from reality, Mylène Farmer: you tend to be very emotional about practical matters related to your personal interests. Maybe you unconsciously fear some kind of deficiency or an abandonment? You seek financial security; however, it may prove counterproductive if you display too much sensitivity… Although so far that very vulnerability served her so well becoming practically her trademark – and by far our favorite part!

Mercury in Libra and in House 2: her intellect and social life

Your thought process is rather slow because you need time and tranquility to review everyone’s ideas and opinions, to weigh the pros and the cons and to eventually take the most equitable decision. You reject all fanatical and extremist behaviors, and you are always in search of the happy medium. Your tolerance, your sense of logic and your negotiating skills are acknowledged but your indecisiveness and your propensity to procrastinate are often criticized. Therefore, you may need to be encouraged and to be nudged into action, in order to offset your fatalistic outlook. Do not seek other people’s approval so constantly, express yourself more and take action…

You have your feet on the ground and a particularly well-developed practical good sense, Mylène Farmer. With you, no excessive emotions, or fuzzy, abstract thoughts: you know where you are heading to, and your sharp and clear intellect usually enables you to efficiently manage your personal affairs.

Venus in Leo and in House 12, and the Sun in Virgo: her affectivity and seductiveness

In your chart, the Sun is in Virgo and Venus, in Leo. Your solar and Venusian signs agree as much as fire and water! The naturally reserved by the Sun in Virgo reacts to the excited and burning character of Venus in Leo. The modesty of the former opposes the passion of the latter. This contradiction may be part of your richness, but it does not facilitate the consistency of your attachments: when you love, when you give free rein to your desires and your affections, you are Leo… uncompromising, passionate, demanding and extremist. You are conquering, too, even domineering. However, your Sun in Virgo does not feel too comfortable in this style. During your periods of defense and of withdrawal, love fever turns into a reasoned and organized retreat. Your behaviors may be paradoxical: you are sensitive to flatteries, but you pretend to be indifferent. You are enthusiastic when your desire is aroused, but you project a more balanced, distant and discreet image. It is necessary that your partner feel the dormant volcano that is often hidden by your will to control. Without that will, you would lose all your landmarks. The adventure is wildly alluring, but you hesitate to play the game and to indulge in frenzy, absolute and destabilizing infatuations. When the configuration is well integrated, it allows you to master various styles and to experience devouring passions… without being devoured!

You are so gratified and generous, Mylène Farmer, that the power of your love contains in itself your vulnerability. However, this is precisely what makes you charming and original. You are loyal and straightforward, and you need to love as much as you need to be loved. Both feelings are tightly linked and there is a real danger that love is broken up by trivial misunderstandings, just because your touchiness is affected. You are demonstrative, brilliant, and even dramatic, with a legendary generosity. For you, everything is, or must be, excessive: gestures of love towards your partner, your presents, your comfort and the luxury, which marks your outings and your travels. You are physically a lion, at least, you have its sexual appetite; you are passionate. Flexibility is the only thing that is out of your reach, in the ways you show your love, as well as in your responses to annoying events.

Mylène Farmer, whether you want it or not, you are the illustration of the famous French saying that: “To live happily, let’s live in hiding!” Nothing suits you better than tranquility, peace and, finally, to some extent, privacy in your love life.

The Ascendant is in Virgo and the ruler of the Ascendant is Mercury, in Libra: her behavior.

Psychologically speaking, your nature is nervous and secondary. Before you take action, you cautiously ponder over things, and you review any possible alternative and reaction. You strive systematically to find the best possible response to any given problem. You are a perfectionist above all, and you have no rest until you optimize a situation, in each and every area, be it professional, pragmatic, aesthetic or in pleasure. You do not accept spontaneity and, to fully enjoy life and go further, you consider that demanding the best is the least you can do, even though it is detrimental to the rough force associated with your instinct. The intellectual element intervenes before both the physical ones and your feelings: it is one of the essential clues to understanding your personality.

As you are born under this sign, you are cerebral, clear-sighted, focused on details and on numbers, analytic, serious, competent, reasonable, modest, tidy, organized, spruce, industrious, provident, honest, loyal, reserved, shy, helpful, willing to progress, talkative, perfectionist, logical, hardworking, tactful, patient, precise, concrete, spiritual. You can also be narrow-minded, calculating, irritating, petty, pernickety, hung up, anxious, cold, repressed or sarcastic.

In love, Madam, you are discreet, modest and intellectual. You may experience love only in the second part of your life if you do not make the effort to become aware that feelings and sexuality don’t fare well with excessive reflection and prudence. In this area, one must not rely on reason…

You are fond of changes, variety and humor and you attach a special importance to your partner’s comments and attentions.

You may marry/have a serious love affair twice, or you may have a secret love on a side, in spite of your seriousness, because Virgo is a dual sign, like Gemini, Pisces and Sagittarius.

The ruler of the Ascendant, also referred to as the chart ruler, brings a few interesting nuances to the meanings provided by the Sun and the Ascendant. The sign in which the ruler of the Ascendant is posited fine-tunes the style of personality described by the Sun and the Ascendant. It may strengthen it if the sign is identical to either of them.

The ruler of the Ascendant, Mylène Farmer, is Mercury. It is posited in the sign of Libra and endows you with diplomacy and a deep sense of justice. Amiable, courteous, and moderate, nothing pleases you more than being able to help opposing parties reconcile, which encourages you to develop your power of seduction, or to flee with swiftness when you deem that the cause you stand up for is a lost cause.

The Sun in Virgo and in House 1: her will and inner motivations

Your sun is located in the same sign as your ascendant. Therefore, your external behavior and your inner self are perfectly in harmony. Characteristics described in the previous chapter are strengthened and amplified.

Willpower and appearance united! You are so lucky, Mylène Farmer, that your inner self and your behavior merge to increase your energy and your vitality. Since the Sun represents your self-assertiveness and your profound personality, he expresses itself best when this configuration is strongly featured.

Mars in Libra and in House 2: her ability to take action.

No one can say that you are particularly aggressive, Mylène Farmer! Actually, it takes a great deal for you to become able to express your anger because you belong to the wavering type, and you are not prone to risk-taking; you loathe violence, and you would rather not intervene than start a conflict. Moderation and the happy medium in all things are your favorites. One of the only areas that makes you wage war is injustice, whether you are the one who is stricken or whether it is someone who is helpless. In this particular field, as in that of sexuality, you are not impulsive and you appreciate it very much when your partner shows the way, preferably with much serenity and gentleness. Actually, the form and characteristics of your sexuality depend on the rest of your personality.

Numerology: Birth Path of Mylène Farmer

Testimonies to numerology are found in the most ancient civilizations and show that numerology pre-dates astrology. This discipline considers the name, the surname, and the date of birth, and ascribes a meaning to alphabetic letters according to the numbers which symbolize them.

The path of life, based on the date of birth, provides indications on the kind of destiny which one is meant to experience. It is one of the elements that must reckoned with, along with the expression number, the active number, the intimacy number, the achievement number, the hereditary number, the dominant numbers or the lacking numbers, or also the area of expression, etc.

Mylene’s Life Path is influenced by the Master Number 11, which indicates a strong, demanding, and uncompromising destiny. It is also called a Master Number. It is all about revelation and early calling. You feel that you are entrusted with a mission, with the certainty that no setback could endanger it, and your own certitudes prevail over any other motivation. You have a lot of strength, and sometime, intransigence. Short-lived fashions and life vagaries cannot weaken your beliefs. You pursue a set direction, in quest of an extraordinary destiny, with the help of your intelligence, your inspiration and the natural influence you have over people. Even though your entourage may not always understand your secret determination and perceive you mainly as an impatient person, your fortitude overcomes many a doubt and obstacle. You can sacrifice everything for the sake of your deep aspirations.

Mylène Farmer was born under the sign of the Ox, element Metal.

Chinese astrology is brought to us as a legacy of age-old wisdom and invites us to develop an awareness of our inner potential. It is believed that the wise man is not subjected to stellar influences. However, we must gain the lucidity and the distance without which we remain locked up in an implacable destiny. According to the legend of the Circle of Animals, Buddha summoned all the animals to bid them farewell before he left our world. Only twelve species answered Buddha’s call. They form the Chinese Zodiac and symbolize the twelve paths of wisdom that are still valid nowadays.

The Asian wise man considers that a path is neither good nor bad. One can and must develop one’s potentialities. The first step is to thoroughly know oneself.

Your Chinese sign is the Ox, also known as the Buffalo in some countries. You are not very influenced by prevailing fashions and trends. You are resistant and you avoid society life like the plague because you consider it a waste of time. You prefer to keep your distance and take action alone.

In many circumstances you display an extraordinary self-control. You are very trustworthy and, more than anyone, you elicit confidences from your entourage. Your sense of responsibilities allows you to avoid faux pas that others make out of insouciance.

You stick to your principles, your loves and your projects. Your behavior is rigorous and fierce, and you do not let anything slip out of your hands without fighting. Besides, you cannot stand failures, and, in that case, you show a perseverance that borders on obstinacy. Therefore, tenacity may turn into stubbornness and extremism. It doesn’t matter! Your courage and stamina are unanimously praised.

However, your patience has its limits… Thus, it is dangerous to spark off your wrath, which is known to be rare but particularly dreadful. You remember the attacks you have been subjected to and you wait for the right time to express methodically your grudges.

Your determined and individualistic character prevails, with an inner strength that overcomes a good many obstacles. You are responsible, reliable and loyal to your friends. You will fully express yourself when you are handed over the reins of power. Whoever attempts to stand in your way is in trouble!

Chinese astrology has five elements, which are referred to as agents: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water.

You have a deep affinity with the agent Metal. In China, this element corresponds to the planet Venus, the white color and the number 9.

Your nature is individualistic and determined, and you seldom shrink from obstacles. The only advice that can be given to you is to show more flexibility and diplomacy. Moreover, life’s pitfalls often stimulate you. On the other hand, you are acknowledged for your decisiveness which commands admiration. You follow your ideas through, discarding external opinions and viewpoints and you bring your enterprises to a successful conclusion, even if it means that you go it alone.

Your decisions are so inflexible and your choices, so final, that your intransigence may bring about a few setbacks. Therefore, it is important that you develop the tolerance that you are naturally lacking. It is only at this price that you can achieve a harmonious social and intimate life.

The prevailing features are your persuasion powers, a faith that moves many a mountain and overcomes the most resistant obstacles. But so many struggles looming…

I hope you enjoyed this astrological overview and took the chance to get to know our Beloved Idol a bit better on the level that is not usually on display.



lyrics with translations

Toi à demi mot
Mes paroles sans echos
Pourquoi m'y faire
Moi noyée dans l'eau
Quand tu n'oses pas les mots
Vois la rosee gèle
Quand les mots s'arrêtent sur tes lèvres?
Dis moi quand seras tu dire que nos coeurs ont vu trop?
Grand les étoilés tombent une a une
Les bougies sont de fortune
Et ses vagues de nausées
Tu vois j'ai l'âme enserrée
Comment t'y prends tu
Au moins le sais tu
Pour mener ta vie
Dans le vent j'entends
Tes renoncements
La melodie dure se répand
Quand les mots s'arrêtants sur tes lèvres?
Dis moi quand sauras tu dire que nos coeurs ont vu trop?
Grand les étoilés tombent une a une
Les bougies sont de fortune
Et ces vagues de nausées
Tu vois j'ai l'âme enserrée
Quand les mots s'arrêtent sur tes lèvres?
Dis moi quand sauras tu dire que nos coeurs on vu trop?
Grand les étoilés tombent une a une
Les bougies sont de fortune
Et ses vagues de nausées
Tu vois j'ai l'âme enserrée
Quand les mots s'arrêtent sur tes lèvres?
Dis moi quand pourras tu dire que l'amour est suffisant?
Les etoiles tombent une a une
Mes mois sont de saturne
Et ces vagues de nausées
Tu vois j'ai l'âme enserrée

You half a word
My words without echoes
Why do I do it
Me drowned in water
When you don't dare the words
See the rose freezes
When the words stop on your lips?
Tell me when will you say our hearts have seen too much?
Great the stars fall one by one
Candles are makeshift
And her waves of nausea
You see my soul is trapped
How do you go about it
At least you know
To lead your life
In the wind I hear
Your renouncements
The harsh melody spreads
When are the words stopping on your lips?
Tell me when will you know how to say that our hearts have seen too much?
Great the stars fall one by one
Candles are makeshift
And these waves of nausea
You see my soul is trapped
When the words stop on your lips?
Tell me when will you know how to say that our hearts have seen too much?
Great the stars fall one by one
Candles are makeshift
And her waves of nausea
You see my soul is trapped
When the words stop on your lips?
Tell me when can you say love is enough
The stars are falling one by one
My months are Saturn
And these waves of nausea
You see my soul is trapped
