Happy Birthday Paul McCartney, your Astrology

June 18,2021 is Sir Paul McCartney’s 79th birthday. As a life long Beatles fan, since I was 12 years old I want to wish Sir Paul a very healthy happy birthday. I feel so lucky being born when I did because my very first rock concert was seeing The Beatles play live at Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto in 1964. I got to see them play back to back concerts in 1965 and again in 1966. I was such a Beatles fan I skipped school in Grade 11 and ran off to New York one afternoon because I heard the Beatles were there in 1967. I got in big trouble for that one but it was a great adventure. I didn’t catch up to the Beatles though. My younger child Leah was raised on Beatles songs and classical music only. I took her to see Paul McCartney in 2010 when she was 12 so she could experience the closest thing to seeing the Beatles as I had experienced at her age. I cried.

Paul McCartney Astrology Chart
Paul McCartney Astrology chart

Paul McCartney is a GEMINI of course and not just a Gemini SUN. Sir Paul has Uranus, Saturn, and Mercury Retrograde his MC his worldly fame point and his SUN all in Gemini and that’s why he stays so young energetically. Mercury rules all the Gemini planets and is strong in its home sign. Sir Paul had MERCURY Retrograde and he hasn’t done to badly.

SUN and MC SQUARE ASCENDANT AND NEPTUNE

Paul’s chart is not complicated at all. He has only a few squares. The SUN, the vital energy and his career and his thrust in the world MC in GEMINI and the VIRGO ascendant and Neptune are always pressuring each other. Paul worked hard and is always thinking, and inspired about his career.

Paul’s ASCENDANT is VIRGO

He is a perfectionist, a nitpicky critic, a workaholic, very organized, neat, meticulous, with a good memory and intellect. Paul’s perfectionism and need to control things may be a sticky wicket in the Beatles towards the end they say in 1971. Virgo rules health and grains and Paul is a noted Vegetarian since the 1970’s. Virgo is also the sign of people who love nature and simple things and Paul famously moved to a remote part of Scotland when he married Linda to farm and to raise their kids as normally as they could sending them to public schools. He never learned to read music originally and remembered all the songs in his head and just played them. His AC is ruled also by Mercury.

Recording engineer Norman Smith stated that the Rubber Soul sessions exposed indications of increasing contention within the band: “the clash between John and Paul was becoming obvious … [and] as far as Paul was concerned, George [Harrison] could do no right—Paul was absolutely finicky.”[43]  Harry 2000b, p. 780.

Paul has the dreamy, creative, inspired, visionary planet NEPTUNE which rules all artists, and musicians, psychics dreams and spiritual energy is on his AC, in the sign opposite the one it rules which is PISCES. Paul was a natural born artist and creative man, and his dreams have always been very strong and a source of practical inspiration. He wrote the Beatles famous song Let It Be from a dream he had of his mother Mary coming to him when he was going though a dark time telling him Let It Be. That was the inspiration for the song. Its one of the BEATLES and Paul’s greatest songs amongst hundreds he’s written. He has also dabbled in painting.

THE MOON at 17 LEO

which symbolizes his feelings, home life, his mother, Mary who he tragically lost at 15 to breast cancer, and his children is in the Sign of Royalty performers and STARS LEO! along with Mars and Pluto conjunct which is a very powerful combo of drive, creativity self-expression, will power, joy, pride, courage, childlike energy, big hearted, loyal. Paul was always driven to be a big star on the world’s stage. You’ve seen those early Beatles videos when The Beatles first it it big, Paul has this big transparent grin of absolute glee performing on stage which some people saw as hammy. I think he is just enjoying himself so much he loves the adulation. Paul is known to be generous to people who were good to him in the past giving money to those in need. The Cancer Moon gives people sleepy “bedroom eyes” and Paul certainly has those.

CHIRON at 12 LEO conjunct the MOON

This indicates wounds from his mother and any woman in his life. This presages his losing his mother early from Breast cancer as well as his wife Linda. See Venus

VENUS planet of women in Paul’s life, also wealthy, beauty, creativity, and relationships is in her home sign of TAURUS at 19 degrees squaring his Moon. Paul is a very sensuous man with heightened senses of touch feel taste, smell and psychic energy. Paul loves beautiful things, and he has rich luxurious tastes. He is earthy, and stubborn and enjoys life as a Garden of earthly delights.

VENUS is in the 8th house and SQUARE THE MOON

Traditionally any planets in the 8th house are symbols of death. Venus represents women in his life. Paul tragically lost his first wife and true love Linda Eastman McCartney to breast cancer to which his mother succumbed in April 17, 1998 when she was only 56 years old. She apparently told Paul to marry again that she didn’t want him to live the rest of his life alone. He was only 55 when she died. Venus square the Moon symbolizes Paul McCartney’s mother who he lost so young. This is a tragic symbol presaging both his Mother and Linda’s deaths by breast cancer.

LUCKY JUPITER in CANCER on the MC in 10th house of worldly fame

Jupiter is exalted in Cancer and ruled Paul’s Sagittarius IC, his roots, home family and childhood, and is close to the world point Solstice gateway of 0 degrees Cancer. Paul is a very sentimental family man, from his five children from two marriages to his sentimental songs about Liverpool- Penny Lane or Elinor Rigby, and his love of old fashioned early 20’s and 30’s music like his dad Jim played in Honey Pie and other songs of the Beatles era HIs sentimentality and “Silly Love Songs’ comes out clearly in this aspect. Paul is a very emotional sensitive man, who loves his family and needs a woman in his life to be happy. Jupiter in Cancer is a love of water, food and he may have a sensitive stomach. Jupiter in Cancer also gives sleepy bedroom eyes. Paul has these.

Jupiter also squares the AC and NEPTUNE which has expanded Paul’s natural talents and creativity and brought him worldly fame beyond his wildest dreams. His famous early solo song Yesterday which Paul performed on the Ed Sullivan show is the most recorded song ever, all of his catalogue of Beatles Songs and greatest hits wills never be forgotten.

The SOUTH NODE in PISCES NORTH NODE IN VIRGO in the 12th

SOUTH NODE Indicates past lives. The South node in PISCES in the 6th indicates a past life as a very highly spiritual psychic and creative person someone who worked as a creative musician perhaps or a monk who was devoted to poverty and charitable work. Pisces is also the sign of addictions and dreamers. Paul brings in the past life memories unconsciously, the 6th house is also the house of humble ordinary working class people and Paul came from a modest working class background.

The North Node is his highest spiritual and evolutionary goal. Paul has asteroid PSYCHE conjunct his North Node this symbolizes the soul and being psychic. In the 12th house in Virgo its a practical dreamer and creative person who taps into his dreams and visions, his spirituality in his work. He needed to bring his creativity down to earth. For such a success driven man he needs his private and down time.

IC in SAGITTARIUS

The IC is the roots of a person their childhood and their physical home and unconscious.

In Sagittarius there is a love of learning, travel, honesty, bluntness, good humor, inspiration, optimism “exotic religions” eclectic things and expansion. Paul certainly got to travel the world with the Beatles and continued to travel afterwards. He was always interested in intellectual things, philosophy, books, he helped open Indica book store in London, explored John Cage and Stockhausen music, and two of his wives are Jewish and American, very different background to his childhood in Liverpool and his upbringing and he now incorporates Jewish holidays into his life.

All of his planets are in only 5 signs. They all above the horizon indicating a life lived out in public, natural for a big celebrity.

Happy Birthday Sir Paul. May you live to be 120 and be healthy and happy and continue to be creative and bring so much joy to the world. Billions of people are greatful for your talents and gifts to the world

Remembering John Lennon, 2020

“In my life I’ve loved you more. ” from In My Life by John Lennon 1965, 25 years old. 

October 9th, 2020  remembering the extraordinary Working Class Hero, Beatle leader John Lennon on what would have been his 80th Birthday. He was and still is one of my heroes. 

John_Lennon_1969_(cropped) Joost Evers Anefo CC0
John Lennon 1969 (cropped) Joost Evers Anefo CC0

John Lennon was an extremely unusual, intelligent man and a very strong individual. He did prophesy his own death. “The way things are going, they’re going to crucify me.” 56 years after the Beatles came to America and conquered the world the Beatles are still as famous and their legendary songs live on for future generations, Imagine, one of the greatest songs ever written will become the Aquarian age anthem. 

John was a number 6 personality and Soul number. The #6 is THE LOVERS in the Tarot. The center of the Tree of  Life, Tifferet, Beauty. Also, related to Gemini energy, the twins, communications, the mind. John had many sides to his personality and many ghosts.

Did you see that cute little film Yesterday? It posits a parallel Universe where the Beatles never existed. In one scene the anti-hero who is one of the few poeple who remembers the Beatles gets to meet John Lennon who is an ordinary man in this alternate universe. The scene where we see John at 78 years old brought tears to my eyes. 

Let’s look at John’ss birth chart and the transits on his 80th. Synchronistically Mercury in Scorpio is conjunct with his Natal Mercury and Venus is also in Virgo. 

click on chart to view larger

John Lennon is an airy thinking type, a Libra, sign of relationships, harmony, balance, partnerships, Peacemakers, and social charmers was born just after sunset during an air raid on Liverpool during the Second World War. Ruled by the planet Venus he was an artist through and through. Creative types have strong Venus and Neptune planets. Lennon has Venus at 3 degrees of Virgo, in the 6th house of work, service, analysis, criticism, humility and perfectionism. Not what you would expect. Neptune at 26 degrees Virgo in the 6th house is square to the Galactic Center. He was a true metaphysician and visionary.

 His Virgo Venus is quincunx or inconjunct 150-degree aspect to the MOON in Aquarius which is the highest elevated “planet” in his chart. John was governed by his emotions, which could be cold, detached, rude, hard, unfeeling. John and his mother had a distant relationship. He was abandoned by his father at three and then by his mother and brought up by his very strict Aunt Mimi at five. John hardly knew his mother until his late teens, He discovered that Julia, a beautiful vivacious redhead, was living close by and he finally got to know her and his two younger half-sisters. His mother introduced him to Rock and Roll and taught him to play banjo. Moon/ Venus in a difficult aspect indicates the great love for and deep loss of his Mother- killed in a car accident when he was 17 years old.  

Lennon’s Aquarian MOON -the Revolutionary moon, high up in his chart, indicates his worldly status and position. He cooly and cruelly walked away from his first wife Cynthia and his young son Julian suddenly after getting involved with Outsider conceptual artist Yoko Ono in 1967.

Mars was conjunct Neptune in Libra, he was driven, sparked, fired up through his creativity. All artists & musicians’ channel through Neptune planet of SPIRIT. This is the mark of the visionary.

Mars in Libra is focused on “others” and has difficulty making decisions, Mars in Libra is vulnerable, sensitive in the Venus-ruled sign, a peaceful warrior. Mars rules Lennon’s hot-headed -ram butting acerbic-tongued ARIES Ascendant. He appeared tough, masculine, strong-willed, defensive, independent, with a big temper. Lennon’s famous vulnerable songs like HELP! I Need somebody, hey you got to hide your love away.  etc. illustrate the deep vulnerability.

URANUS,the revolution planet, of strong individuals, freedom fighters, group minded Aquarian Age, Higher Consciousness “Power to the People.” is Trine his Neptune at 25 degrees Retrograde in earthy sensual creative Taurus. Lennon was bullish on revolution and freedom.

Lennon was born with a positive Jupiter Saturn conjunction in Taurus, both Retrograde, opposite his Mercury in Scorpio. This is where Lennon’s famed quick-witted, sarcasm comes from. Mars also ruled his fork-tongued Mercury.

Mercury in Scorpio also gave Lennon’s song lyrics great depth. He had the ability to see right through people so could spot a phony a mile away. Songs like Sexy Sadie A Day In the Life, and Working Class Hero are very deep songs.

Lennon had Chiron at zero degrees Leo conjunct Pluto in the 4th house of roots, childhood, mother, home, family, privacy. He was a world soul healer deep-down. Pluto rules the collective unconsciousness as well as the personal Soul drives. Wounded by his early abandonment by his father, and a mother who was not really there for him, Lennon needed Leo’s fame and adulation to cover up those very raw wounds he felt at his core. He did primal therapy to help heal those wounds as an adult.

The Leo needs to shine like the SUN in the world, was an immensely powerful drive.  The Sun in Libra on the cusp of the 7th house of relationships rules his Pluto in Leo. Through creative collaborations, his songwriting talents with Paul McCartney are a legend of course. Here Lennon would find some balance, some peace and connect with all “others.”

Lennon’s chart shows a Grand Trine between the Moon, Uranus in Taurus, and the North Node in Libra- it’s very wide and out of sign. this gives Lennon’s signature as a revolutionary man who would make a huge mark on the world as an artist and peacemaker. 

Mainly there is a FIXED Grand CROSS in his chart-making Lennon a  very intense person. His 10th house MC of world fame is Capricorn. It is real, ambitious, required patience, he started singing publicly at 16. Lennon was a leader, a bit more mature. Capricorn is the sign of worldly fame and fortune.

 So, a short light look at the man who was John Lennon. Whose fame will live on always because music is the food of love and Lennon’s song IMAGINE is one of the rarest and greatest songs ever written.

I do believe he was very enlightened,  although flawed human personality. I could believe that he was like a modern-day Jesus. His life was very much the same. He spoke incredible truth. Loved by millions, he influenced a cultural change that just now is finding its true feet.

Can you IMAGINE a world WITHOUT John Lennon in it?

Bless you John Lennon and thanks for the music and the inspiration, I join you in the dream of Peace. What did John Lennon mean to you?

P.S. I was a huge Beatles fan as a teenager. My daughter Leah was raised on only Beatles or classical music. I remember driving in the car and turning around to see her at 6 sitting in her car seat singing along to “Say you want a revolution, well you know… we’d all love to see the plans.”

IN MY LIFE- John Lennon/Paul McCartney

Little Richard, Rock Pioneer Astrology

RIP Little Richard the real King of Rock ‘n Roll who passed away May 9 in Nashville Tennesee of bone cancer. Little Richard was a wild original super sexual charismatic showman. A bi-sexual effeminate black man who broke through all segregation barriers in the conservative 50’s he inspired all the pretenders to the throne including Elvis, The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Elton John, David Bowie and Prince. His career and his life were a  roller coaster of numerous ups and downs ranging from being blatantly gay, performing in drag early in his career then renouncing it all to become a preacher and back again. He was married at one point and had a very debauched sex life filled with orgies which he proudly spoke about.

May he A Wop Bop a Loo Bop in Heaven

Richard Wayne Penniman was born December 5, 1932, at 2:50 pm in Macon Georgia.” A Georgia Peach” as he referred to himself.  Little Richard was so influential that his nicknames were “The Innovator, The Originator and The Architect of Rock and Roll” these titles are in the signature of his Natal chart. He called himself the True King of Rock. His frenzied piano playing, high falsetto “Whoos”- he taught Paul McCartney how to do it, the huge pompadour hair and his extremely sexual music launched him to many decades of commercial success.

In 1955, Tutti Frutti, fifty-five 55 years ago, was one of his first big hits. Long Tall Sally, later covered by The Beatles, who opened for him on tour in the early 60’s Lucille, Good Golly Miss Molly, and many more hits. At one point Jimi Hendrix was in his band, and James Brown opened for him too.

“He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as part of its first group of inductees in 1986 and inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. In 2015, Penniman received a Rhapsody & Rhythm Award from the National Museum of African American Music for his key role in the formation of popular music genres and helping to bring an end to the racial divide on the music charts and in concert in the mid-1950s, changing American culture significantly.” You can Google all the deets about his life. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Little_Richard

Let’s get down to his astrology chart.

Little Richard is a fiery optimistic, faithful, inspiring Sagittarius big smiling SUN on what we now know as The Great Attractor, he was extremely charismatic in his 8th house of transformation. Sagittarius are very honest and Richard was, spilling all the beans in his interviews. MERCURY Retrograde in Sage close to his Sun indicates he was a quick learner with an adventurous mind and would have hated to be tied down. Sagittarius’s are preachers and Richard did that in all kinds of ways.

Uranus trines his Mercury Retro

He had an unconventional way of communicating, he coined the A WOP BOP A LOO BOMP language.

His MOON in PISCES indicating a spiritual, creative, addictive nature, Richard woudl turn to that Olde Time religion over his life and was addicted to drugs too. He had a huge imagination and was a watcher, indicative of the 12th house secretive nature.

ARIES Ascendant is a hot, brash, hi-energy, independent, living dangerously man

Of course, Little Richard would have an ARIES- the high Pompadour hair, Aries rules the head, and his hot-headed, fiery, passionate energy lit up any room.

VENUS at 10 degrees of Sexy SCORPIO in the 7th house of relationships trining his North Node at 12 PISCES.

Richard had a huge sex drive which came through in his songs. He had voracious sexual appetites and was Bisexual. His sex life went through many Scorpio like transformations. His North Node in PISCES needed to forgive himself for being so primally driven by becoming a religious preacher and denouncing sex and rock and roll. He went through this cycle more than once.

MARS at 9 VIRGO indicates his sexuality was very grounded, He was a hard-working perfectionist, and could have been very critical and sometimes petty. MARS conjunct NEPTUNE planet of spirituality, creativity, dreaming, addictions and illusions, meant that sex was often by observing and in his imagination. He said he used to masturbate eight times a day.

MARS NEPTUNE SOUTH NODE CONJUNCTION in VIRGO squares SUN and MERCURY

South Nodes symbolize past lives in VIRGO Richard may have been a preacher teacher, wandering gypsy, teacher or a thief and all of the above.

JUPITER in VIRGO in his 6th House opposite Moon in PISCES

Richard loved to work and he may have been very tight with money. He was responsible and devoted to his community. Jupiter opposite Pisces Moon enhances his natural artistic creative imaginative escapist mind.

SATURN at 1 degree AQUARIUS in his House of Fame

The title The INNOVATOR comes from Saturn’s placement in Aquarius, and the ARCHITECT too, Saturn is the Builder. in his house of career and worldly fame with staying power. Saturn symbolizes his father, serious devotion, hard work and staying power.  a wild radical innovator, right in his bones. Aquarius is the sign of electric energy. Richard was a wild radical innovator, right in his bones which Saturn governs.

CERES conjunct SATURN

Richard loves women, Cered, symbolizing his mother and Saturn symbolizes older more mature men, He had a thing for younger girls.

SATURN in AQUARIUS OPPOSITE PLUTO in CANCER SQUARE ASCENDANT

Richard has huge appetites to be in power, his sexuality, control power debauchery and innovation were Legendary.

URANUS in ARIES in his 12th House Square PLUTO

This is also innovative, wild freedom-loving chaotic power, This is also a transpersonal aspect indicating how Richard’s influence was archetypal and had such a huge influence.

CHIRON and LILITH in TAURUS in his 1st House trine Jupiter

Richard was extremely sensual, governed by his body’s needs. He lusted after strong independent and sexual women. His own powerful Feminine was the dark alluring independent sexual energy which he identified with but also which wounded him.

AT HIS DEATH- PERFECT SYNCHRONICITY

Richard was experiencing his 3rd SATURN return exactly with Saturn virtual immovable.

PLUTO and JUPITER opposite his NATAL PLUTO

Death, transformation, legacy. Little Richard will be remembered for the wealth of his musical talents which spawned legends of musicians.

NEPTUNE in PISCES opposite his NATAL JUPITER

Neptune in PISCES is a source of spiritual angelic going home energy. Neptune opposite Jupiter indicates a very peaceful death. Richard’s faith would have him return to Source, all is forgiven all sins absolved. he would be hearing the music of the spheres and angels singing him home.

CHIRON and CERES in ARIES mirror his Natal Ceres Chiron conjunction in his 12th house of the unconscious. On an archetypal and imaginal level Richard was integrating his own wounds and vulnerability of his own strong feminine energy.

Transiting VENUS in GEMINI in a T-square to Moon in PISCES JUPITER in VIRGO

This is a loving energy bringing together that duality in Richard’s psyche.

Transiting Moon in Sagittarius is like a NEW MOON of a new beginning. The Moon is going home to feel safe and secure.

Many famous rock and rollers poured out their RIP’s and Little Richard’s legacy will keep everyone rocking forever. What’s your fave Little Richard song?

Praying for rain for Australia fires

I am not Aboriginal so I hope that I am not offending any Indigenous people with my positive intentions. I have studied and lived by doing ancient pagan ceremonial wisdom and spirituality since the ’80s. Paganism and shamanism were the original spirituality of all cultures pre- Judaism, Christianity, Buddhist, Islam and Confucianism. I feel connected to it in my DNA and in my cellular memory of all my past lifetimes.

I feel called to help send energy and prayers to the Australian people and the millions of animals and the trees who have been killed by the man-made bush fires there now.

If you feel called to do so, please send your prayers and intentions to Australia now. Sit with a bowl of water or by waterways, rivers, oceans, even a swimming pool, and visualize clouds forming over the Bushfires and rains putting out the fires. 

I am calling on the Rain Gods of their own Indigenous peoples and the Gods and Goddesses from different cultures to aid them to bring rain.  I do this from my heart and with total respect for all the cultures of the world. In essence, all Gods and Goddesses are One Holy Spirit/ Creator, Great Mystery.

Toronto Festival helped break up The Beatles

I was at the Toronto Rock and Roll Revival show September 13, 1969, all day and it was amazing. I remember Jim Morrison not being in great shape. He sang the Unknown Soldier and they debuted a video. Chuck Berry and Alice Cooper were good. I do remember John doing some great songs. Everyone was so hyped to see John play. Everyone hated Yoko Ono’s screaming. Yes the thousands of little lighters, the original. I am so happy I got to be there at so many amazing Rock and Roll events. I was backstage.

Yes, there’s Woodstock ’69, but what about that Toronto festival that helped break up The Beatles?: Alan Cross

9/9 Numerology Hermit and Virgo wisdom

September 9 is always a 9/9 numerology sequence. 

The Hermit Visconti-Sforza Tarot

the Hermit #9 Virgo the Visconti Sforza tarot

Nine is a magic number, no matter how many times it is multiplied it will always reduce to itself. 

The number nine symbolizes completion, fulfillment, attainment, beginning and end, perfection,

3 x 3, a Triple Triad, a Feminine number, there are nine months of human gestation. 

#9 is an incorruptible number. It’s a celestial and Angelic number. There are nine muses.  

In Chinese symbolism:  it signifies Celestial power, It also signifies the 8 sacred directions in Feng-shui with the center as the ninth point as in the Hall of Light. 

#9 symbolizes Pure Intelligence in the Kabbalah. It reproduces itself when multiplies. It is like a hologram. 

In Hinduism: The number of Agni God of Fire. The square of the nine forms and the mandala of 81 squares leads to, and encloses the Universe.

Scandinavian Mythology  Odin/ Woden hung for nine days and nights on the World Tree, Yggdrasil to win the secrets of wisdom for mankind. {Odin is also the Hanged Man Trump #12 in the Tarot}.

Celtic: A central number of 8 directions and the ninth being the center. Three triple Goddesses. 

Pythagorean: the Limit of numbers, all others existing and revolving within it. 

Tibetan Buddhist and Catholic rosaries or malas all contain 108 beads, 9 x 12. 

In the Tarot the Trump #9 is The Hermit

The Hermit’s symbol, traditionally features an old bearded wise man in profile, a Sage holding up a lamp in the dark. The Hermit’s association to Virgo suggests that the LIGHT of wisdom is to be found in our bodies, in our guts, on the material plane, which is Virgo’s element. 

What is a Hermit? Like the crab, who retreats into its own shell, a Hermit needs to be alone, to seek spiritual wisdom which can only come from listening to one’s Higher Self. A Hermit is someone who surrenders to the call of Spirit, {Pisces} the opposite sign to Virgo. Hermits need to give up their worldly possessions, symbols of ego attachment in order to be unencumbered for the inner journey, symbolized as a cave, seeking spiritual enlightenment to feel complete. 

The Hermit is a very powerful Archetype in all the worlds’ major religions. Moses, the Buddha, Jesus and Mohammed all had solitary Vision Quests, some in caves, when they became enlightened.

To embody The Hermit’s energies, we will absolutely need to have a regular spiritual discipline. Daily mindful meditations are recommended. Yoga is good as a spiritual path first, a physical path second. Being in nature and tending to natures preservation is also a way to embody the Hermit Energy. Focussing on the body as a sacred Temple of the Soul is also a very important component. You are what you eat. Eating consciously as a spiritual path will also be in vogue. No more selfies, humility is the name of the game. 

In the Kabbalah the #9 is the 9th Sephirah, called Yesod, meaning Foundation. The Hermit is related to the Path of Yod the first and last letter of G*d’s ineffable name. It symbolizes the point of origin of our manifest universe in direct contact with the Divine Source of all Light. It symbolizes the Astral Light, Akashic fluids or Kundalini energy, the storehouse of images. It’s related to the Moon and the Pineal gland.  Its attributes are incense and the demarcation of sacred ground in ritual.

The Hermit seeks to follow spirit by being in service to others.  

Virgo is associated with:  Work, service, perfection, healing, health, discipline, accountability, intelligence, the body,  grassroots community, budgets, digestion, natural foods, small domestic pets and animals, the Army, chemists, Pharmaceuticals, craftsmen, dairies, gardens, herbs, illness, mathematics,nutrition,  poultry, psychiatrists, Red Cross, charities. 

PLACES:  Assyria/Syria, Baghdad, Basel, Switzerland, Brazil, Boston, the Congo, Croatia, Greece, Jerusalem, Los Angeles, Lyon, France, Moscow, Russia and Turkey.

With so many planets in Virgo right now. Its easier to connect with the Hermit’s energies. 

An earth sign, Virgo is the Virgin Goddess who governs the harvest. She is Ceres/Demeter. The Harvest is also a symbol of karma as in what you sow so shall you reap. What we are reaping is what we have sown.  2016 is a year of focussing on the earth, the environment, preserving, healing and serving Mother Earth. We saw many world-wide organizations rally to help heal the environment now that we realize what damage mass consumer culture and the gluttony and addiction to cheap fossil fuels has done to the earth. 

Virgo governs workaholism. 

MONSANTO and GMO foods are still a major issue as Virgo is the Harvest. Monsanto is trying to rule the world by controlling Food production, literally the harvest. By making death seeds, which cannot reproduce naturally Monsanto and the other conglomerates’ control who will eat and who will starve.

Using RoundUp still used in the U.S. and Canada but outlawed elsewhere in the world foods disrupts the body’s natural digestion.  Virgo/the Hermit is intelligent and can connect the dots. Virgo is ruled by Mercury, the symbol of communication and consciousness. The mind/body connection will be seen as so common sense and self-evident. People will Get it. 

The Symbol of the Virgin Goddess is also a sign of the DIVINE FEMININE becoming stronger and more manifest in the world and in the culture. Virgin originally meant “whole and complete unto herself, belonging to no man.” She was originally parthenogenic, reproducing herself without a male. This is the original Goddess and woman as a free, independent, intelligent, strong, benevolent, loving, and nurturing being. Her attributes of renewal are also a very strong symbol that Nature can be renewed using natural means. The herbs which the earth provides are the best. Using non-toxic remedies to heal will be the mode of choice.  

Nature/Mother Earth/ The Virgin Goddess/ the # 9, are all symbols of hope and renewal and being like a Virgin, innocent, open, trusting, purified and healed. A return to Innocence.

a remix of revolution #9 by the Beatles https://youtu.be/jF7SgFtSbaI

Interview with John Lennon about Revolution #9 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wpMKmXKgPmc

Remembering John Lennon, Imagine

December 8, 2018 is the anniversary of John Lennon’s murder today.  Shortly before 11 p.m. on December 8th, 1980 25-year-old Mark David Chapman fired five shots from a .38 caliber revolver into John Lennon’s back. 

This was a defining event for anyone who was a Beatles fan. I remember I was at home when I heard, and I was in disbelief and in shock. Do you remember where you were when you heard that terrible news today, oh boy? 

John Lennon, leader of The Beatles, one of my teenage idols, because of who he was, an extremely unusual, intelligent creative person a strong individual. He did prophesy his own death. His songs will inspire future generations, especially Imagine, one of the greatest songs ever written. 

John was a number 6 personality and Soul number. The #6 is THE LOVERS in the Tarot. The center of the Tree of Life, Tifferet, Beauty. Also, GEMINI energy, the twins, communications, the mind.

Let’s look at John Lennon’s birth chart at birth and at his death

click on chart to view larger

John Lennon, a Libra, sign of relationships, harmony, balance, partnerships, was born just after sunset during an air raid on Liverpool during the Second World war. Creative types have strong Venus and Neptune planets. Lennon has Venus at 3 degrees of Virgo, in the 6th house of work, service, analysis, perfectionism. Not what you’d expect.

 His Venus is quincunx the MOON in Aquarius which is the highest elevated “planet” in his chart. His is governed by his emotions, his mother and his radical instincts to be free from the past.

Lennon’s Aquarian MOON -the Revolutionary moon, indicates his worldly status and position.

Moon/Venus in difficult aspect indicates the great love for and deep loss of his Mother- killed in a car accident when he was 17 years old. She was too young and immature to raise him herself, so he was brought up by his Aunt Mimi.

Neptune at 26 degrees Virgo in the 6th house is square to the Galactic Center. He was a true metaphysician and visionary.

Mars in LIBRA was conjunct Neptune in Virgo he was driven, sparked, fired up through his creativity. All artists & musicians’ channel through Neptune planet of SPIRIT. This is the mark of the visionary. This is a ‘working class hero.” Virgo is the sign of servants.

Mars in Libra is focused on “others “and has difficulty making decisions, Mars in Libra is vulnerable, sensitive in the Venus-ruled sign, a peaceful warrior. Mars rules Lennon’s hot-headed -ram butting acerbic-tongued ARIES Ascendant. He appeared tough, masculine, strong-willed, defensive, independent with a big temper. Lennon’s famous vulnerable songs like HELP! I Need somebody, hey you got to hide your love away.  etc. illustrate this.

URANUS the revolution planet, of revolutionary individuals, freedom, group mind, the Aquarian age, an Air sign is Trine to his Neptune at 25 degrees Retrograde in earthy sensual creative Taurus. Lennon was bullish on revolution and freedom in his creativity, for sure.

Lennon was born with a positive Jupiter Saturn conjunction in Taurus, both Retrograde, opposite his Mercury in Scorpio. This is where Lennon’s famed quick-witted, sarcasm comes from. Mars also ruled his fork-tongued Mercury.

Mercury in Scorpio also gave Lennon’s song lyrics great depth. He had the ability to see right through people so could spot a phony a mile away. He was also deeply insecure possessive and jealous. “I’m just a jealous guy.” 1971 and “You Can’t Do That.” 1964 and “Run for Your Life” 1966 an early Beatles song shows this possessive jealous revengeful side. 

Lennon had Chiron at 0 degrees Leo conjunct Pluto opposite the Moon the 4th square Ceres and Mercury in Scorpio

Moon in the 4th is in its natural position where the attachment to mom is vital, its where John craved emotional security. But the Chirotic wound is very deep, Leo rules the heart, this is a heart initiation for Lennon. The wound squares his Ceres the symbol of the Great Mother in Scorpio- sign of death, deep anger and emotionally transformative energies which included his Mercury in Scorpio. Her sudden tragic loss impregnated Lennon’s messages. 

The 4th is the house of roots, opposite the Moon which is his mother, Julia, an unconventional liberated woman. The Moon in Aquarius shows a distance, detached, airy, quirky, unreliable and rather chaotic mother. His childhood was like this. He was left by his mother to be raised by his strict Aunt Mimi. His mother’s unique personality and her shocking sudden loss shaped Lennon’s consciousness deeply in Scorpio. Wounded by his early abandonment by his father, and a mother who wasn’t there for him, Lennon needed Leo fame and adulation to cover up those very raw wounds he felt at his core. He did primal therapy to help heal those wounds as an adult.

The Sun in Libra

on the cusp of the 7th house of relationships rules his Pluto in Leo. Through creative collaborations, his song writing talents with Paul McCartney are legend of course. Here Lennon would find some balance, some peace and connect with all “others.”

Lennon’s chart shows a Grand Trine between the Moon, Uranus in Taurus and the North Node in Libra- it’s very wide and out of sign. This gives Lennon’s signature as a revolutionary man who would make a huge mark on the world as an artist and peacemaker. 

Lennon’s Venus was in Virgo

He was meticulously organized and valued intelligence. He was a perfectionist. He loved to work hard.

Mainly there is a FIXED Grand CROSS in his chart-making Lennon a very intense person.

His 10th house MC of world fame is Capricorn.

Ruled by Saturn Retrograde in Taurus in his 1st house the impact of a father who wasn’t there also fueled his career ambitions to be “the toppermost of the popermost.”  Saturn is conjunct JUPITER exactly at 13 degrees TAURUS in his 1st house of self-identity. This is rare once in 20-year cycle. Jupiter expands whatever it touches.

JUPITER-SATURN in the 1st in Taurus opposite Mercury in Scorpio indicates the sensuous, physical, deep soul messages, down to earth, “working class hero” stubbornness of Lennon’s character. He kept things real, he was ambitious for material and soul wealth. He had patience, Taurus rules the throat, Lennon started singing publicly at 16. Lennon was a leader, a bit more mature. 

AT HIS DEATH

CHIRON the wounded healer @ 14 degrees TAURUS was conjunct his Natal Jupiter-Saturn conjunction and inconjunct his Natal Libra Sun.

Jupiter and Saturn are again in their 20-year conjunction sandwiched between Lennon’s Mars and his North Node. Mars is violence and the North Node is the soul’s highest goal. 

Lennon was experiencing his mid-Life Crisis with Uranus the planet of chaos, and revolutionary change in Scorpio sign of shocking violence and unexpected death was opposite to his Natal Uranus in Taurus in his first house. Uranus at 27 Scorpio is widely squaring Lennon’s Natal Venus in Virgo.

Neptune in Sagittarius is squaring natal Neptune in Virgo

This is a generational transit that happens around 40. Idealistic and romantic related to his work. Lennon had just put out a new album.

Transiting Pluto at 23 Libra was hovering on Lennon’s 7th house cusp

Pluto is Libra in the 7th house it indicates Karma, Uranus in Taurus is quincunx Pluto

John Lennon’s fame will live on always. Lennon’s song IMAGINE is one of the rarest and greatest songs ever written. He couldn’t have written it without Yoko Ono’s huge influence on him. She was a conceptual artist and Imagine is a totally conceptual song. It is one of the most powerful songs ever written.

I do believe John was a very enlightened, although flawed human personality. I could believe that he was like a modern-day Jesus. His life was very much the same. He spoke incredible truth. Loved by millions, he influenced a cultural change which just now is finding its true feet.

Can you IMAGINE a world WITHOUT John Lennon in it?

Bless you, John Lennon and thanks for the music and the inspiration, I join you in the dream of Peace.

What did John Lennon mean to you?

P.S. I was a huge Beatles fan as a teenager. My daughter Leah was raised on only Beatles or classical music. I remember driving in the car and turning around to see her at 6 sitting in her car seat singing along to “Say you want a revolution, well you know… we’d all love to see the plans.”

Rolling Stone published an article about gun violence.

21st century Protests are the 60’s upgrade

March for Our Lives March 24th

Hundreds of thousands of teens and supporters protest for stricter gun control laws in Washington D.C.and are supporting in sibling protests in North America and around the world to prevent these tragedies of the slaughter of innocents from happening again.

The teens who survived the Parkland Florida shooting have said enough is enough and created walk out in High Schools all across the U.S. They started a Kickstarter campaign for the victims and raised over 3 million dollars in a number of days which is being used to help transport protesters to Washington. That doesn’t include the $2 million donated by Oprah and Amal and Geroge Clooney.This is so exciting from an Astrology point of view as well. These protests would be attributed to the Cardinal Squares between Planets URANUS in ARIES and PLUTO in Capricorn from 2012-2015 which are still occurring now.

These two planets- Yes PLUTO is still a planet- created the 60’s culture of Peace and LOVE when in conjunction in Virgo. That was the seeding stage of the cultural sex-drugs-rock and roll-mind expansion-freedom- protests-east meets west- black panther party- racial integration and the youth culture shift. NOW the actual growth from those seeds take root -in Virgo related areas-
ecology -work- natural health and foods- community- accountability- intelligence-analysis and being of service.

VIRGO is the sign of the GREAT MOTHER GODDESS- CERES. To HER we are returning as Creatress of ALL the Divine Feminine Force from which all life issues. We know this in our bodies and cells as we all share this reality that everything is born from the feminine- literally. The real revolution from the 60’s protests against the corporate establishment takes roots and grows now.

Plus we are 50 years from that time.

URANUS and PLUTO were conjunct for the first time at 17+ degrees VIRGO on October 9, 1965- which was Beatle John Lennon’s 25th birthday.

The BEATLES #1 song on that day was “Yesterday.” Bob Dylan was the leader in protests songs.

The Beatles 1966 copyright free

The Beatles 1966

Two more conjunctions occurred at the 18th degree VIRGO on April 4th and June 30th, 1966  and both on the 17th degree of Virgo with Saturn opposite in PISCES.

1966  Joni Mitchell singing ‘Urge for Going” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vLu2-gG68S0

NEPTUNE will reach 16 degrees PISCES from May-August this year and re-ignite that 60’s echo placement. 

CHIRON was between 18-26 degrees PISCES -which it just passed last month.

Once complete Chiron Return. We also have Uranus rules tools- cell phones – new technology- the great democratizing tool- which has also been used to spy on the public and extract date to manipulate them with.

URANUS will enter TAURUS May 15 -Nov. 6, 2018, beginning a new 8 years cycle- Uranus governs HIGHER CONSCIOUSNESS and the AQUARIAN AGE- yes this is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius. Uranus back peddles into Aries again at the end of the year but Fully enters TAURUS on March 6, 2019- July 7, 2025.

More on that later.

John Lennon’s spirit, Imagine the vision

“In my life I’ve loved you more. ” from In My Life by John Lennon 1965, 25 years old. 

October 9th, 2020  remembering the extraordinary Working Class Hero, Beatle leader John Lennon on what would have been his 80th Birthday. He was and still is one of my heroes.

John Lennon was, an extremely unusual, intelligent person and a strong individual. He did prophesy his own death. 56 years after the Beatles came to America and conquered the world the Beatles are still as famous and their legendary songs live on for future generations, Imagine, one of the greatest songs ever written will become the Aquarian age anthem. 

John was a number 6 personality and Soul number. The #6 is THE LOVERS in the Tarot. The center of the Tree of  Life, Tifferet, Beauty. Also, GEMINI energy, the twins, communications, the mind.

Did you see that cute little film Yesterday? It posits a parallel Universe where the Beatles never existed. In one scene the anti-hero who is one of the few poeple who remmebers the Beatles gets to meet John Lennon who is an ordinary man  in this alternate universe. The scene where we see John at 78 years old brought tears to my eyes. 

Let us look at John Lennon’s birth chart and the transits on his 80th. Synchronistically Mercury in Scorpio is conjunct his Natal Mercury and Venus is also in Virgo. 

click on chart to view larger

John Lennon is a Libra, sign of relationships, harmony, balance, partnerships, Peacemakers, and social charmers, was born just after sunset during an air raid on Liverpool during the Second World War. Ruled by the planet Venus he was an artist through and through. Creative types have strong Venus and Neptune planets. Lennon has Venus at 3 degrees of Virgo, in the 6th house of work, service, analysis, criticism, humility and perfectionism. Not what you would expect. Neptune at 26 degrees Virgo in the 6th house is square to the Galactic Center. He was a true metaphysician and visionary.

 His Virgo Venus is quincunx or inconjunct 150-degree aspect to the MOON in Aquarius which is the highest elevated “planet” in his chart. John was governed by his emotions, which could be cold, detached, hard, unfeeling. John and his mother had a distant relationship. He went abandoned by his mother and brought up by his  very strict Aunt Mimi since he was five years old. John hardly knew his mother. In his late teens, he discovered his mother Julia, a beautiful vivacious redhead, was living close by and got to know her and his two younger half-sisters. His mother introduced him to rock and roll and taught him to play banjo. Moon/Venus in a difficult aspect indicates the great love for and deep loss of his Mother- killed in a car accident when he was 17 years old.  

Lennon’s Aquarian MOON -the Revolutionary moon, indicates his worldly status and position. 

Mars was conjunct Neptune in Libra, he was driven, sparked, fired up through his creativity. All artists & musicians’ channel through Neptune planet of SPIRIT. This is the mark of the visionary.

Mars in Libra is focused on “others” and has difficulty making decisions, Mars in Libra is vulnerable, sensitive in the Venus-ruled sign, a peaceful warrior. Mars rules Lennon’s hot-headed -ram butting acerbic-tongued ARIES Ascendant. He appeared tough, masculine, strong-willed, defensive, independent with a big temper. Lennon’s famous vulnerable songs like HELP! I Need somebody, hey you got to hide your love away.  etc. illustrate this.

URANUS the revolution planet, of strong individuals, freedom fighters,  group minded the Aquarian Age, Higher Consciousness “Power to the People.” The Air sign is Trine to his Neptune at 25 degrees Retrograde in earthy sensual creative Taurus. Lennon was bullish on revolution and freedom in his creativity, for sure.

Lennon was born with a positive Jupiter Saturn conjunction in Taurus, both Retrograde, opposite his Mercury in Scorpio. This is where Lennon’s famed quick-witted, sarcasm comes from. Mars also ruled his fork tongued Mercury.

Mercury in Scorpio also gave Lennon’s song lyrics great depth. He had the ability to see right through people so could spot a phony a mile away.

Lennon had Chiron at zero degrees Leo conjunct Pluto in the 4th house of roots, childhood, mother, home, family, privacy. He was a world soul healer deep-down. Pluto rules the collective unconsciousness as well as the personal Soul drives. Wounded by his early abandonment by his father, and a mother who was not really there for him, Lennon needed Leo fame and adulation to cover up those very raw wounds he felt at his core. He did primal therapy to help heal those wounds as an adult.

The Leo needs to shine like the SUN in the world, was an immensely powerful drive.  The Sun in Libra on the cusp of the 7th house of relationships rules his Pluto in Leo. Through creative collaborations, his songwriting talents with Paul McCartney are a legend of course. Here Lennon would find some balance, some peace and connect with all “others.”

Lennon’s chart shows a Grand Trine between the Moon, Uranus in Taurus, and the North Node in Libra- it’s very wide and out of sign. this gives Lennon’s signature as a revolutionary man who would make a huge mark on the world as an artist and peacemaker. 

Mainly there is a FIXED Grand CROSS in his chart-making Lennon a  very intense person. His 10th house MC of world fame is Capricorn. It is real, ambitious, required patience, he started singing publicly at 16. Lennon was a leader, a bit more mature. Capricorn is the sign of worldly fame and fortune.

 So, a short light look at the man who was John Lennon. Whose fame will live on always because music is the food of love and Lennon’s song IMAGINE is one of the rarest and greatest songs ever written.

I do believe he was very enlightened,  although flawed human personality. I could believe that he was like a modern-day Jesus. His life was very much the same. He spoke incredible truth. Loved by millions, he influenced a cultural change that just now is finding its true feet.

Can you IMAGINE a world WITHOUT John Lennon in it?

Bless you John Lennon and thanks for the music and the inspiration, I join you in the dream of Peace.
