BDSM Canadian sex scandal Jian Ghomeshi

This is a Canadian media sex-scandal. If you don’ know who Jian Gomeshi is, at 47, he was one of the Canadian Broadcast Corporations most popular radio hosts. His show was also broadcast to  public radio stations in the U.S. He had been working for the C.B.C. for the last 12 years.  He created his popular Q radio interview show , interviewing many famous personalities.  Q aired five days a week across Canada on CBC radio and was very popular and acclaimed over the last 7 years. Gomeshi was also a popular Canadian TV Host.

JIAN was a musician playing in a band called Moxy Fruvous before getting into radio. On August 14, 1997, their song “YOU WILL GO TO THE MOON” was used by NASA to wake the crew of STS-85. Note the song title.

 Jian was born in London England, and is of Iranian descent. His family moved to Canada when he was a boy. He is a Canadian Citizen.

His father recently passed away and on October 24 Jian said he was taking a leave of absesce to deal with family matters.

On October 26 2014 the CBC announced that  “information came to our attention recently that in CBC’s judgment precludes us from continuing our relationship with Jian” He was fired. Later that same day, Ghomeshi announced that he planned to launch a $50 million lawsuit against the CBC “claiming general and punitive damages for among other things, breach of confidence and bad faith”. He later released a statement asserting that his dismissal was related to allegations that he had sexually coerced a past girlfriend into engaging in BDSM activities against her will, Jian asserts that this is a smear campaign.– read link below

Four women initially came forward, some 27 years his junior stating that Ghomeshi  brutally assaulted them physically and sexually. One woman had worked for The CBC and claimed sexual harassment but nothing was done about it but an  investigation is starting. New evidence has come out on October 29 with one famous Canadian actress stating that Gian choked and hit her without her consent. Three other women have also added their names to the list of grievances against Mr. Ghomeshi

Lets look at Jian’s astrology chart to find out who he is, I started this on October 26

JIan Ghomeshi CBC Toronto scandal Tara Greene

Jian is a GEMINI, he has a dual nature, a light side and  dark side and needs to learn through experiencing many relationships.Gemini personalities can be viewed as a bi-polar personality. He also has Athena Goddess of wisdom conjunct his 6th house Sun.

All Gemini’s can be charming and are  wonderful communicators, they are like big kids who always have a million Questions. Gemini’s are curious, immature, irresponsible, intelligent, analytical, non-committal.  A 6th house sun makes Gian also very Virgoish, the other sign that Mercury rules. Jian is a workaholic, a perfectionist, relentlessly in his head, nervous, always ruminating. This placement can make people OCD and difficult to get along with.

Gian’s Ascendant is 29 degrees Sagittarius. As the Centaur to the max, he is an inspirer, a philosopher, somewhat wild, animalistic, naive and uncivilized. Ruled by his jolly lucky Jupiter in Leo he is all about the fame game. 

My intuition told me to put the Asteroid Toronto into his chart. Yes there is an asteroid named after Toronto. It is at 1 degree of Capricorn when Jian was born, right on his Ascendant indicating that Toronto was a place of destiny.

Wow I love ASTROLOGY don’t you?

He is an extreme Sagittarius, too honest, a philosopher, easy-going, casual, a teacher, always questioning ,judgmental.

MOON is conjunct Mercury in Cancer in the 7th house

Jian’s feelings, the Moon and his head, the planet Mercury are inseparable. He is detached emotionally even though the Moon in Cancer is the most emotional  and sensitive  can overpower him.  He is extremely moody and be caught awash in unconscious mood swings. Moon in Cancer men tend to be mama’s boys. Cancer men also wear big  protective suits of armour to protect their soft underbellies.  They can be very defensive. He is sentimental deep down and very close to his family. These planets in the 7th house of marriage, are focused on relating and nurturing others if healthy. 

The Moon Mercury combo focus a T-square to  MARS in LIBRA in the 9th house and SATURN in ARIES in the 3rd house.

MARS opposite SATURN is a Classic difficult SADO- MASOCHISTIC pattern. And even more complex when tied into the Moon and Mercury.

Wherever Saturn is there is  karmic difficulty, obstacles, testing and  restrictions.  Mars in Libra acts nice and charming but is frustrated because the natural masculine energy can’t express freely, it is weakened. This implies a need to be punished for being weak.  Mars opposite Saturn is repressed anger -the need to dominate. There are some major father- Saturn, Mother- Moon complications in Jian’s psyche. They may be from past lives not only this present one.

Jian has an EXACT JUPITER VENUS conjunction in LEO in the 7th house of relationships.

Jian is proud, strong, macho,  charismatic, powerful, domineering. He needs to be the big star, an egotist, vain, self-centered, childlike. This is also a classic very fortunate, very lucky aspect but can be too much. He is the undisputed King and  expects everyone to love him, to do exactly what he wants. IN other words narcisistic. He thinks he is  beyond impunity. Conjunct Venus there is a love of beauty,  women, big romancer. Venus in Leo – he likes younger women he can feel more powerful than. He attracts riches, wealth and power.

That regal  Jupiter Venus Conjunction is also Square to his  Scorpio SOUTH Node and his NORTH Node  at 6 degrees Taurus in the 4th house.

The Scorpio SOUTH NODE sits right on top of his 10th house his highest PUBLIC career position like a spire.

SOUTH NODE is past lives or the story we unconsciously are imprinted with when we are born. I read this as meaning that Jian has also been famous before, he has had lots of power. South Node in Scorpio is all about  sex, power, control, secrets, manipulation, unconsciousness, psychology, death,  transformation, kinky sex, taboos, spitefulness, violence. The South Node is where anyone is the most vulnerable, as we tend to fall back unconsciously into our own entrapments.

The North Node is where Jian needs to direct his intentions 

4th house NORTH NODE is in the most private part of his chart. A Taurus North Node is very grounded, practical, earthy, humble and sensuous.  It is creative, also relates to communications and is ruled by Venus. Jian needs to let go of his need for sex money fame power and manipulation and become a simple hard-working , private, self accepting man. The 4th house is home, parents, roots foundation, emotional security, children, nurturing others and endings.

Jian was born in the 60’s with a URANUS PLUTO Conjunction in Virgo in his 8th house of  revolution sexual, freedom. He is a creative genius, someone who always marches to his own drummer. He is a malcontent. The planets square his Gemini Sun. He believe she is fighting, acting or promoting a revolutionary idea through his work and his beliefs.

NEPTUNE the planet of spirituality imagination creativity, self-undoing, addictions,delusions, in Scorpio- sex addictions,  and his only Retrograde planet in the 10th house of worldly success and fame. HE HAS DONE THIS BEFORE.  Neptune is squared by his Natal JUNO at 20 degrees of LEO. Juno is the feminine form of intelligence and genius. they even have Juno awards in Canada for music. Some very smart outspoken women will be the downfall of his romantic illusions.

Jian also has a quincunx or inconjunct from Neptune in Scorpio to LILITH in ARIES in the 3rd house. HELL hath no fury like a woman scorned. This shows a huge split in Gian’s psyche. LILITH and Ceres are in a square to each other -there is friction, and tension around women and sexuality and controlling them, that demands release.

He is a mama dominated boy, with CERES the Mothering principle in CANCER where it is smother, and square to LILITH. This is the classic MOTHER/WHORE Split. Ceres is also conjunct Jupiter and Venus in Leo furthering amplifying MOM in his split psyche which he acts out unconsciously on women.

CHIRON the wounded healer is at the very last degree of PISCES. This degree has been called the last stop or the last incarnation degree. Jian is suffering the self-undoing, the unconscious addictions, the feeling of being suffocated from within his own psyche. He has reached maximum falling off point.  Chiron in Pisces is incarceration, martyrdom, endings. 


SATURN conjunct his natal NEPTUNE in his 10th house of fame.

A KARMIC self-undoing about SCORPIO issues, sex, secrets being outed, power, control manipulation, revenge. A public fall from fame to ignominy.


PLUTO in Capricorn in his 1st house of self is opposite his natal MERCURY in Cancer at 12 degrees in his 7th house of relationships. URANUS in Aries is also squaring his communications planet from Aries in his 3rd house. Unexpected chaos, death, humiliation, scorn, revenge, the soul and the identity unravelling, dying. 

Pluto brings death, his father just recently passed away. Pluto will destroy our sense of self- the 1st house to lay us low to learn who we rally are. We must confront our own fears, our own self- hatred.Pluto rapes us into consciousness.

PLUTO is the Soul, our shadows. Jian has undone himself big time. his shadows are now out in public for all to see. He revealed his BDSM issues to fend off the accusations which has only made it worse.

Transiting North Node is conjunct his MARS in LIBRA which is in the CARDINAL CROSS Fire from Uranus in Aries in his 3rd house of communications and PLUTO in Capricorn. He will never be seen as Mr. Nice guy ever again.

Transiting Jupiter in LEO is square to his Neptune his dreams, illusions, delusion. addictions. Jian had gotten too cocky, too proud, Jupiter also conjunct JUNO. Smart women speak out.

Mercury just turned RETROGRADE DIRECT exactly on his natal MARS in LIBRA in his 9th house of justice and honesty, turning inside out communications about other people’s, especially in relationship opinions are of him.

Chiron in Pisces has been squaring his natal Mercury and Traniting Neptune is blinding his Moon.

The  SOLAR ECLIPSE on April 29 2014 at 8 degrees of Taurus and the more recent October 23 Solar eclipse at zero degrees Scorpio triggered Jian’s Nodal axis- the South and North nodes which also hit his 10th house of worldly fame .

One last thing, on the day the CBC  announced that it had fired Jian, MARS the planet of action, war and aggression exactly crossed his Ascendant, his persona and conjunct his Asteroid TORONTO.

Who could make this stuff up?

I expect Jian’s career to be totally ruined in Canada, he may face a court case. Although he could resurrect himself  in another country like his home, England or in the U.S. I bet Howard Stern would love to talk to him. Jian has his Mercury conjunct the U.S. Sun and the Star SIRIUS the star of death and rebirth so I would literally expect him to have a new career on  SIRIUS RADIO– who could make this stuff up? He is a talented interviewer, despite his violent nature.

Doing violence to women though is a grievous charge. Not one woman went to the police at the time and filed a report on him.  Women stating that he assaulted them must still be proven. With Sagittarius on his Ascendant there will likely be a court case that Jian will be dealing with over the next 2-2.5 years when Saturn enters Sagittarius on Christmas this year.

Not until Saturn crosses his Ascendant  in December of  2017 will Jian be fully reborn. 

I had a psychic flash on Halloween that he would commit suicide. A narcisistic person could not deal with the shame.
