Pluto square Uranus and the MGTOW Movement

ef543bd1aacc30a80409d5c6a1d9cb66

Over the past several years, there’s been a growing movement of men who have given up on the idea of forming harmonious relationships with women. Marriage is a self-annihilating social construct for these men. MGTOW is an acronym which stands for Men Going Their Own Way and this trend is beginning to grow in popularity. Just enter MGTOW in the YouTube search field or Google it and you will see what I’m talking about. I have watched quite a few of these MGTOW videos and I must admit that a lot of the points made in rationale for this growing trend are valid. Men who subscribe to the MGTOW credo finger 3rd wave feminism as the main culprit and sadly, I have to agree. While there is nothing inherently evil and divisive regarding the original concept of feminism, the movement has been hi-jacked by radical, ultra-left wing feminists. These 3rd wave feminist videos are ubiquitous on YouTube along with the MGTOW content. Both sides are ridiculously extreme in their views, but I must say, if I have to choose between the two, I am siding with MGTOW since their arguments are more rational and logical. Blame my Capricorn Moon Rising, but I prefer men to be men and I appreciate the traditional roles that both men and women play in society. My Mars is in trine to Venus, which grants me the ability to look at the perspectives of both sexes objectively. What I gather from these MGTOW males’ gripes is that they just want to be respected for being what they are naturally inclined to be: A Mars-ruled species. When one’s very existence is being threatened, it’s only natural for him to engage in self-preservation.

The battle between the sexes has never been so bitter, never have I seen it so brutal. This is all by design by the touch of the Unseen Hand in my opinion, but that’s not what this post is about. In 2010, I created a video and uploaded it to YouTube where I criticized ultra-left wing radical feminism and warned that there would be a growing number of men who would start to rebel against this attack upon their image and their very nature. I called it “masculinism”, which interestingly enough, is not even recognized as a word unlike feminism, its female counterpart. MGTOW is basically hyper-masculinism in a nutshell. It is beyond misogyny. It is pure apathy towards women. A lot of these men are fed up with the status quo and perhaps, justifiably so.

Over the past 20 years or so, masculinity has been attacked primarily through media representations of the male experience. Men have been encouraged to go against their nature and to become more docile, more effeminate. Just think about all of the commercials where the wife is portrayed as the wise, all-knowing one and the husband is a bumbling imbecile who needs to be led through the nose by his omnipotent wife. The emasculation of men has been taking place in the Western Hemisphere for quite some time. This is for one reason and one reason only: A weakened, emasculated population of men is easy to subdue, easy to bring under total control.

Astrologically speaking, Mars rules men as well as the Sun. Both the Sun and Mars are dominant, masculine, aggressive and productive forces. They represent the essence of men. The symbol for the MGTOW movement is one black solid vertical line with what looks to be an erect penis protruding from the right side (as pictured below). This is just a castrated variation of the Mars symbol. Notice the key difference. With Mars you have the circle which represents the scrotum/testes. The circle also depicts the source of creation. With the MGTOW symbol, the circle aka scrotum/testes is not present, denoting an unwillingness to even copulate with women for the sake of having children. They are essentially telling women: “No, I will not let you take my balls. I’d rather cut them off before I hand them over to you”.

mgtow_001mars

Both the Sun and Mars are not designed to be in submission. Sure, these forces can get out of control if there are no holds barred, which is why we have the Moon and Venus, the heavenly bodies that represent women. When the male populace becomes emasculated, the energy of the Sun and Mars does not disappear for per the first law of thermodynamics, energy is neither created nor destroyed. That Sun/Mars energy has to go somewhere. The radical feminists believe they are siphoning this energy and becoming empowered, but in reality it is those who orchestrate things from on high who are usurping it. Those who rule the world are stealing this energy and using it to destroy the moral fiber and integrity of both sexes.

The astrological configuration that is representative of this growing MGTOW movement is the ongoing square between Pluto in Capricorn and Uranus in Aries, beginning in 2012. Astrology King has this to say about this powerful transit:

Uranus square Pluto is the most significant and most challenging planetary influence in a generation. We are living through a major global upheaval due to, and resulting in rapid evolutionary change. Uranus represents change, invention, revolution, and higher awareness. It’s effect is shocking, unpredictable, and erratic. Pluto represents globalization, destruction, transformation, and renewal. It’s effect is grinding, ruthless, and extreme.

Both of these planets are distinctly non-personal and emotionless, yet their effect is dramatic and deeply felt. The square is the most challenging of the planetary aspects, representing stressful tests and challenges. [1]

Mars rules Aries, and like Mars, Aries represents males. Uranus deals with rebellion, revolution, and uprising all of which MGTOW represents. Pluto in Capricorn is the powder keg in the house of traditional institutions such as marriage. Pluto in Capricorn points to these MGTOW men seeing marriage and commitments to women as a death trap, a maximum security prison. Pluto also points to these men taking an extremist position regarding their manhood since they perceive it as being threatened.

However, as I stated previously, there’s more than meets the eye with this MGTOW movement. Pluto in Capricorn can represent this Unseen Hand that I speak of; a shadow government who engages in psychological warfare on its own citizens. This is nothing new. Most, if not all governments of the industrialized world have psychological controls in place to subjugate the masses and keep them in a state of division. This is to prevent uprisings. Pluto in Capricorn square Uranus in Aries can denote government-run (Capricorn) psyops (Pluto) that are designed to create conflict (square) through the de-sexualization/depersonalization (Uranus) of men (Aries). Those in power realize that this will cause some men to rebel and wage war against women—women being their only saving grace in these days and times. Men need women and women need men. When the sexes are at war, both sides lose.

The funny thing is, most women do not resonate with the ultra-left wing feminist agenda that is fomenting this epic battle of the sexes. However, the power of the corporate-controlled media that is the mouthpiece for the Evils that Be (Pluto in Capricorn), creates the misconception that women are all on the same free-bleeding platform. That’s right. It’s gotten down to free-bleeding (Google it if you don’t believe me) feminists—which is nothing, but some agent provocateur-style bullshit courtesy of those who pull on the heartstrings and tap dance upon the minds of the masses.

Part II is to Come…

Afrika Bambaataa’s Natal Chart – Does He Have What It Takes?

afrika-bambaataa

Afrika Bambaataa, one of the pioneers of hip hop is currently facing allegations of child molestation that allegedly occurred during his hey day back in the late 70’s and early 80’s. Ronald Savage among others, has alleged that Bambaataa sexually molested him when he was a young teen. As a result of this scandal that has plagued the hip hop community, but even more so Afrika Bambaataa’s Zulu Nation, I am going to analyze his natal chart to see if there are any indications or tendencies that would corroborate the accounts of his alleged victims.

Note: I do not know his time of birth and it has not been verified despite the claims by some that he is a Sagittarius rising. As a result, I will only discuss his planetary aspects and forgo discussing the house positions or Ascendant.

Afrika Bambaataa was born on April 17, 1957 which would make him an Aries with a strong organizational mindset since the number 17 breaks down to 8 and the number 8 deals with business and materialism in general. 8 is the number of Saturn and with it comes heavy karma. It’s interesting to note that Afrika Bambaataa is experiencing his 2nd Saturn Return. Saturn Returns occur approximately every 29 years and they usually herald very challenging circumstances. Saturn Returns in a spiritual sense can result in having to pay down some karmic debt. This is exactly what is happening with Bambaataa right now during his Saturn Return. When people are ill-prepared for their Saturn Return period, it is often a very humbling experience. Saturn also deals with reputation and when Saturn returns to its natal position, one’s reputation may be in jeopardy. Recently, Bambaataa issued this official statement in response to the allegations made against him:

I, Afrika Bambaataa, want to take this opportunity at the advice of my legal counsel to personally deny any and all allegations of any type of sexual molestation of anyone,” Bambaataa says in a statement to Rolling Stone. “These allegations are baseless and are a cowardly attempt to tarnish my reputation and legacy in hip-hop at this time. This negligent attack on my character will not stop me from continuing my battle and standing up against the violence in our communities, the violence in the nation and the violence worldwide.

The number 17 is softer than the single number 8, but the energy of Saturn is still present. With 17, one may be very artistic, fond of music, dance, filmmaking, pageantry, etc and create a livelihood out of it. However 17, mainly because of the number 7 can also deal with having a secret life or deceptive tendencies. It is easy to put up a charade. Usually, 17 is never totally upfront about his true intentions. There may be a hidden agenda or ulterior motives at work.

Now, looking into Afrika Bambaataa’s chart there are some indicators that point to the tendency for sexual predation. Some of the main indicators are challenging aspects between his Sun, Moon, Venus, Saturn, and Neptune. With the Sun being joined to Venus in Aries, Bambaataa has a natural affinity for music and entertainment, but also males since Aries is the most virile and masculine of the signs. Aries also deals with youth, thus he has a natural affinity or even attraction for young men. There have been rumors circulating within the hip hop community for years regarding Bambaataa’s homosexuality.  Sun in conjunction to Venus also deals with his flamboyant identity (think about his Soul Sonic Force days where he wore elaborate costumes and tights) and his penchant for unity. The whole “Peace, Unity, Love, and Having Fun” song was a testament to this. However, Venus in Aries is more about self-love than true love for others. With this Venus-Sun combo, Bambaataa was able to gain a lot of praise, adoration, and devotees throughout his rise to fame.

Now, this Venus/Sun conjunction is in pretty bad shape. This coupling is plagued by a hard aspect from the planet Neptune. Neptune is in opposition to his Sun and Venus which points to a very secretive or even deceptive nature. It is akin to living a lie. There’s much about Bambaataa’s life that he tries to keep hidden; Neptune being the planet of lies, deception and that which is kept under wraps. Neptune is in Scorpio, the sign of taboo activity and sexual bonds. Basically, this aspect enabled Afrika Bambaataa to lure boys into his circle by his message of Love, Peace, Unity, etc. With Neptune, he basically provided asylum for these youths, but at the same time it was a trap and they became easy prey.

The Sun and Venus are also in challenging aspect to his Moon and Saturn in Sagittarius. There’s a sesquisquare between these two cosmic couples and this can point to Bambaataa’s godfather or mentor/role model position and his ability to funnel boys into his organization for his own personal benefit. Saturn in conjunction to the Moon can make one very opportunistic as a result of a fear-based mindset. On a benign level Saturn joined with the Moon can point to one who lacked a childhood, proper nurturing, and possibly a mother’s love during the formative years. It can also point to strife within the home and having to take on the role of a parent as a child. As a result of Bambaataa’s difficult upbringing, he tries to create his own ideal family circle and legacy, hence the Zulu Nation, but with the challenge from the Sun and Venus in Aries, this family/legacy is dysfunctional and it echoes the kind of family dynamic that could be prone to incest. Often with Sun conjunct Venus, the native does not see others as distinct individuals–they are mere extensions of himself. When a person lacks the ability to respect others as individuals, it is very easy to impede upon their rights.

Afrika Bambaataa’s Sun and Venus are in square to Uranus and this can point to an alternative lifestyle, being eccentric or being ultra-progressive. On the negative end it can result in tendencies toward perversion and deviant behavior. This aspect points to his activist bent and the forming of the Zulu Nation, but since it’s a square, his intentions are not totally pure.

Bambaataa’s Moon/Saturn combo is in challenging aspect to Neptune. As I stated previously, Neptune is about lies and deception, but it is also about victimization. Bambaataa’s opportunistic personality and his status as a father-figure/mentor could result in the victimization of others through sex (Neptune in Scorpio). His Moon and Saturn are in Sagittarius and Sag deals with his international acclaim, his philosophy, belief system and god-like status. Saturn with the Moon can also cause him to lack the ability to relate to others on a personal level. He may actually believe he is a god in the flesh and this would give him justification to commit the grievous acts against those who put their trust and faith in him if these allegations are true. He is viewed as some sort of savior, but with this aspect he’s more of a cult leader.

The Zulu Nation founder has a hard aspect between Moon/Saturn and Mars. It’s an opposition in fact so this deals with an external struggle that is inherent within his life. This external struggle can point to him taking advantage of his mentorship/godfather position in the form of preying upon young men. Mars is in Gemini and Gemini deals with youth. Mars deals with males. Gemini can deal with being two-faced or having a second agenda. Due to issues regarding his father (as evident with challenging aspects to the Sun and Saturn, plus Saturn retrograde), Bambaataa has a need to feed on male energy to overcompensate for his lack of a male role model. Perhaps, Bambaataa’s own father had homosexual tendencies and struggled with his manhood. With Mars opposition Saturn alone, most likely his father was not around or was incapable of teaching him how to be a man. This combination between the Moon, Saturn and Mars can also cause him to not be able to respond to women sexually. This aspect can possibly point to Bambaataa being sexually abused or molested by a woman or mother figure in his early life. This could have turned him off from women and caused him to become very untrusting of them. Afrika definitely has serious issues with women and as a result he seeks love from men.

A few more indicators are present in Bambaataa’s chart–namely a semisquare between Mars and Uranus. This challenging aspect can deal with deviant sexual tendencies and perverse desires. It also deals with craving absolute power over those who join his organization. Now, the semisquare is very patient in meting out karma so it could take many years before one’s transgressions are exposed when done under this aspect.

He has a square between Mercury in Taurus and Chiron in Aquarius. This is a tight square that can deal with having a reprobate mind. A person with this aspect doesn’t feel that the rules should apply to them. They want to be the exception to the rule. With Chiron being in Aquarius, it gives him cult-leader tendencies as well as the tendency for perverse thoughts when in challenging aspect to Mercury. Mercury in Taurus makes him very much interested in music, but also beauty and sensuality. Taurus is also about values. When in square to Chiron, he may not be upholding the same values that he espouses.

Bambaataa has Mars square Jupiter which could make him very hypocritical, shady, and calculating. This aspect also causes one to be prone to excess, to not look before they leap, and to be sort of like a pied-piper–preying upon youth. Mars square Jupiter can also deal with rumors and gossip being spread about him, legal charges brought up against him, bribery, and even blackmail.

In terms of key asteroids, he has a contra-parallel between Hebe and Venus. This can point to an inappropriate relationship with young males since Hebe deals with youth. Negative aspects between Hebe and Venus or Mars for that matter, can indicate the propensity for pedophilia and child molestation.

Finally, I looked into Afrika Bambaataa’s spiritual evolution profile which can be gleaned from the examination of the Moon’s Nodes. Bambaataa’s South Node is in Taurus which puts his North Node in Scorpio. As a result, Bambaataa is an extremely sensual person who is prone to hyper-indulgence since the Nodes are at 21 degrees. In past lives, Bambaataa may have been indulgent, but he toed the line, he lived according to the values of society and he upheld the status quo. In this current incarnation, Afrika Bambaataa is called to live a more dynamic, transformative, and deeply meaningful existence through the North Node in Scorpio. He is to collaborate with others, create synergy and live life more on the edge. In the course of trying to evolve spiritually, Bambaataa has gone to the extreme left. He does embody a lot of the positive traits of the Scorpio Node, however, he has also adopted some of the most negative traits of Scorpio which is engaging in taboo/criminal behavior, being manipulative, cunning, obsessive/compulsive, and hyper-sexual. His Mars in Gemini forms a challenging aspect (quincunx) to his North Node–his sexual drives prevent him from evolving in the appropriate manner.

In conclusion, Afrika Bambaataa certainly has what it takes with respect to the allegations of child molestation. The thing is, Bambaataa has been given some protection via the planet Pluto (Venus/Sun trine Pluto, Neptune sextile Pluto) and this has enabled him to operate under the radar for many years. However, with this Saturn Return that he is experiencing, the indomitable power of Pluto can’t even shield him from the shit storm that has darkened his doorstep. After analyzing his natal, I believe these allegations are true.

Saturn in Sagittarius has a way of dethroning kings because it cares not about false pretenses; Saturn in Sagittarius is about truth reigning supreme–especially with respect to organizations and systems. Afrika Bambaataa’s god-like status is no more. That’s the power of Saturn in Sag. Transiting Saturn will land on his natal Saturn again on May 24th so he’s still in the thick of it. More details or allegations may come out around that time.

Kanye Keeps the Krazy Coming

Kanye

After reading some of the latest tweets of the one and only Kanye West, aka Yeezy, I was inspired to analyze his natal chart. Firstly, Kanye West’s birth date alone provides a gateway into his crazy world. Born when the Sun was skipping through Gemini and  on the 8th day, Kanye can’t help but to speak his frenetic mind in an attempt to further his ambitions. 8 is the number of Saturn according to Chaldean numerology. People born on the 8th are often extremely ambitious, business-oriented, and drawn to high positions in life. With Kanye being a Gemini, the energy of the number 8 is channeled into a variety of pursuits from music production to fashion design. 8 people have a tremendous ability to attract large sums of money via industry or government. Career is everything to 8 people and they are willing to work hard to get to the top of their field. Kanye is no exception. However, the number 8 is one of destiny and with it comes a heavy dose of karma that cannot be escaped in the present incarnation. 8 can bring one to tremendous heights in terms of status and wealth, but when the wheel turns downward, there’s not much that can be done to mitigate the destined misfortune. Kanye West may certainly be experiencing the downside of his destiny at the moment. Here are some of his recent tweets:

31 Days of Horror: A Compilation of My Favorite Horror Films. Day 19: It

IT movie cover

Stephen King’s It (1990)

Why I love it:

  • It’s based on a novel by Stephen King.
  • It’s a film that features the creepiest clown ever, Pennywise who preys upon children. 
  • It provides psychological terror that resurrects childhood fears. 
  • Pennywise, the clown resides in a sewage system and he is first seen when a boy looks into a storm drain for his lost paper boat. 
  • The fact that Pennywise preys upon innocent children is one of the main reasons why it’s so scary.
  • Pennywise’s twisted line “They all float down here”. 
  • The shower scene where Pennywise comes up from out of the drain.
  • The movie goes back and forth between the group being terrorized as children and how their lives have been affected as adults. I like how each person of the group gets informed that Pennywise is back by another. 
  • The group of kids coin themselves “The Losers” because they are outcasts. I always root for the underdogs.
  • While I felt that the ending of It was weak, rushed and cheesy, the make up, special effects and the plot itself make up for it.

Bill Cosby At a Glance: Does He Have What it Takes?

Portrait of Bill Cosby smoking a cigar. — Image by © CORBIS

Before I get into the discussion regarding Bill Cosby’s astrological profile I must make the following disclaimer:

According to Astro-Databank, the source of Bill Cosby’s natal chart, Bill Cosby’s actual birth time could not be verified and thus his natal chart was given a Rodden Rating of DD which stands for Dirty Data. As a result, certain aspects of Bill Cosby’s natal chart will not be discussed such as his Ascendant, Midheaven and houses. The degree of his Moon in Virgo will remain in question as well. With that being said, still much insight can be gleaned from his chart.

There are certain aspects in Bill Cosby’s natal chart which would make him in my opinion capable of committing the sexual crimes in which over 40 women to date have alleged. I will discuss these aspects briefly below starting with the most benign.

Sun in Cancer sextile Moon in Virgo

This aspect has provided Bill Cosby with many opportunities to groom and mentor women. The fact that Cancer and Virgo are involved reinforces the theme of helping or mentoring women.

Sun in Cancer conjunct Pluto in Cancer

This aspect can lead to prominence in one’s life and Bill Cosby is certainly no exception. Sun conjunct Pluto can also denote one who wields a great deal of influence over others. The darker manifestation of this aspect can deal with operating under the radar due to motivations that center on what society would deem criminal or taboo. The fact that his Sun and Pluto are in Cancer underscores the theme of his manipulation of women.

Sun in Cancer semisquare Venus in Gemini

With Sun semisquare Venus, Bill Cosby may have a difficult time respecting others as individuals and is more likely to see others as an extension of himself, or worse objects. There could be a lack of boundaries and mutual respect at play with this aspect–especially with respect to his relationships with women. This aspect can also deal with a man who has a difficult time being faithful especially since Venus is in Gemini which can deal with an appetite for different women. Furthermore, in a male chart, this aspect can deal with the tendency to lose sight of one’s purpose or role when in the face of attractive females.

Mercury in Cancer conjunct Pluto in Cancer

Mercury in bed with Pluto can point to someone who harbors dark or taboo thoughts. This kind of person may also know how to operate under the radar and avoid arousing the suspicion of others. Thus, with this aspect Bill Cosby has a mind that is prone to plotting, manipulation and Svengali tactics. In the darkest most literal sense, Mercury conjunct Pluto can deal with a mind that is geared toward overpowering others.

Moon in Virgo sextile Mars in Scorpio

This aspect can deal with Bill Cosby’s ability to meet new women and bring them under his tutelage. This can point to an ease with being alone with women as a result of gaining their trust. Again, I am seeing Svengali tendencies with this aspect–especially with respect to young women. Sexually, this aspect can point to him being attracted to women who appear weak, vulnerable or helpless.

Moon in Virgo trine Jupiter in Capricorn

This aspect in the most simplest terms is Bill Cosby being blessed with many opportunities to be in the company of different women–many of whom are looking for growth (Jupiter) in terms of their careers (Capricorn) This aspect also points to Bill Cosby’s ability to meet women from all over the world. He was also able to come across as a man of integrity and high principles–but certainly not so now. A dark manifestation of this otherwise positive aspect could be an insatiable appetite for women that becomes an ambition and the propensity to be a philanderer.

Moon in Virgo trine Uranus in Taurus

Moon trine Uranus can deal with a man being a magnet for different women and with Uranus in Taurus–a lot of these women could be strikingly attractive. We know that Bill Cosby allegedly targeted models and aspiring actresses. Uranus can also deal with being tall in stature which reinforces the model theme. I feel that this aspect also points to Cosby’s involvement with the Playboy Mansion and his friendship with Hugh Hefner since Uranus deals with that which goes against the norm and Playboy when first published certainly went against the norm. Uranus also deals with friendships and groups and one could say that the Playboy jet set were a unique group of prominent men. Moon in Virgo can deal with seeking perfection in women, an impossible ideal which Playboy has consistently tried to uphold.

Moon in Virgo conjunct Neptune in Virgo

In Cosby’s case, this aspect can deal with the drugging of women in the most literal sense because Neptune deals with intoxicating substances and the Moon deals with women. His Moon being in Virgo, points to Cosby’s involvement with women who were seeking his help or mentorship.  Most of these women were young in age at the time that these incidents allegedly occurred which is another characteristic of Moon in Virgo (youthful women). Neptune is not just the planet of intoxication, it is also the planet of sleep. Most reports of Bill Cosby’s alleged crimes involved the women waking up from sleep or unconsciousness and feeling violated. Also with this Moon-Neptune conjunction Cosby may have yearned for the perfect woman and perhaps a woman was only perfect in his eyes when asleep or unconscious.

What’s also interesting is that Cosby has two Grand Trines both involving his Moon. Grand Trines can point to one being self-contained, some kind of renegade or where something is being kept tightly under wraps barring any outside interference. Grand Trines can give a person free reign to do as they wish in certain areas of life.

Venus in Gemini sextile Saturn in Aries

This aspect provided Bill Cosby with plenty of opportunities to help women and become something of a mentor or parental figure. Saturn’s influence would have enabled him to gain the trust of numerous women. Saturn also deals with Cosby’s professional status which gave him credibility and respect.

Saturn can represent something that is severely lacking in one’s life and as a result it leads to a tendency for the person to overcompensate. With Cosby’s Saturn in Aries, he may have never felt that he was man enough and this could have stemmed from his relationship with his father. As a result, he may have been compelled to overcompensate in the area of sexual gratification. Most will agree that overcompensation tends to take things too far.

Mars in Scorpio sextile Neptune in Virgo

This is to me one of the most incriminating aspects of Cosby’s natal chart by far. On the surface it could simply point to a strong drive and effort to make it in show business/acting that pays off. However, this aspect is also in my opinion, what enabled Bill Cosby to utilize an intoxicating liquid (Neptune) concoction to feed (Virgo) to unsuspecting women as an attempt to have sex (Mars) whilst being overpowered (Scorpio). This aspect alone points to the ability to manipulate, drug and then subjugate through rape or sexual assault. I’m not saying that I’m 100% positive that he is guilty, but this aspect certainly makes those allegations extremely plausible. Remember, Scorpio deals with taboos including rape and Cosby’s Mars is in Scorpio. Mars and Neptune together can also point to using deceptive means to get sex.

Mars in Scorpio opposition Uranus in Taurus

While this aspect is very wide in orb (8 degrees), it still wields some influence in Cosby’s life namely in the form of him having alternative or perverse sexual desires. Since Taurus deals with possession, Cosby may have a sexual desire to possess women, but only temporarily since Uranus is involved. There’s also an element of danger interwoven in this aspect so perhaps Cosby would get aroused by the risks that he was taking when attempting to subjugate women to his will.

The Asteroid Lilith

Lilith glyph

Bill Cosby has some interesting aspects with the asteroid Lilith. According to Astrology, Lilith represents rebellion, sexual prowess and that which is taboo. Lilith is also about being a pariah or social outcast.

Lilith in Sagittarius quintile Moon in Virgo

With Cosby’s Lilith residing in Sagittarius, he has a great deal to lose by allowing himself to be ruled by his lower passions. This could deal with a sort of fall from grace where he is given saintly status at one point in his life and later demonized as a result of some scandal. With Cosby’s Lilith in quintile to his Moon, he was given special privileges and treatment where his relationship with women were concerned. He may possess a special talent for gaining women’s trust and making them feel secure in his presence. It is this special talent which would grant him carte blanche to become sexually aggressive with these women.

Lilith in Sagittarius opposition Venus in Gemini

This aspect between Lilith and Venus can deal with both Cosby’s inclination towards unbridled, deviant sex acts with numerous women and his subsequent fall from grace once the women began speaking out and filing charges. This aspect can also deal with having to pay out large sums of money as a way to quiet some of the women making these allegations.

Lilith in Sagittarius trine Saturn in Aries

This aspect between Lilith and Saturn could give Cosby the motivation to sexually assault women since Saturn is in Aries and this placement can deal with overcompensating for a lack of masculinity. This could certainly be true for Cosby since he has a great deal of feminine energy in his chart (Sun, Mercury, Pluto in Cancer, Moon in Virgo, Mars in Scorpio). Also, as mentioned previously, his professional status greatly enabled him to live out his deviant sexual desires.

Lilith in Sagittarius trine Pluto in Cancer

This aspect can certainly point to sexual proclivities that border or center on overpowering women. This aspect could also enable him to engage in these deviant activities without being detected. Furthermore, since Pluto deals with prominence, Cosby’s celebrity status also facilitated his ability to engage in criminal behavior and remain untouchable. As of today, Bill Cosby has never been criminally charged for the acts that over 20 women have alleged he committed.

A Few Other Points

In terms of Chaldean numerology, Bill Cosby is a 12 which means Sacrifice/Victim. 12 also breaks down to 3 which has the same vibration as the planet Jupiter. Thus, one could say that Cosby suffers from a God/Zeus complex and women have been victimized (allegedly) in the process. 3 is prone to excess and as stated above a sizable number of women have came forward with these allegations. Furthermore, Bill Cosby’s North Node is in Sagittarius which means that in this lifetime he has to try to live a life of temperance, high morals, and faith. The flipside of these Sagittarian virtues are excess, wantonness, a lack of discipline and over-indulgence so he could really go either way; it’s his choice. With Cosby’s South Node being in Gemini, the hardest South Node of all, he most likely faced constant temptation to do wrong even though he knew better. His immediate environment as well as his close associations could have fueled his predacious drive.

Summary

The purpose of this post was to show the planetary energies at work that could have enabled Bill Cosby to commit the sexually deviant acts in which he has been accused. A natal chart cannot indicate whether a person is actually guilty or innocent. However, it can show the propensities, tendencies and motivations of the particular individual in question. I believe that Bill Cosby’s natal chart does show that he is very capable of committing the crime of drugging women in order to take advantage of them sexually. The proof is in the astrological pudding if one knows where to look.

Disclaimer on the Law of Karma

Karma pic

Yesterday I posted an article on the subject of Karma written by Stuart Wilde. Basically, he broke down the time frames of Karma starting with Instant Karma and ending with Long-term Karma. I am piggy-backing off of this article to interject a bit of a disclaimer.

Understanding the Law of Karma and even reincarnation for that matter still leaves some questions unanswered. I’ll give you two:

If karma is real why does it seem that people who lean on the side of good have more instant karma than people who lean on the side of evil?

 

If karma is a form of Divine Justice why has evil been able to dominate the world and why are evil doers handsomely rewarded through riches and power?

These questions used to plague my mind even with having full knowledge and understanding of the Law of Karma, which is essentially the Law of Cause and Effect. One only has to take a cursory look at history to see that evil has prevailed for thousands of years. One has to only go as far as their family or their surrounding area to see how generally good people often get hit with the hardest karma. Also, what about countries and regions? Do certain areas have better karma than others? Does the United States for instance have better karma than say, Haiti? Surely the U.S. has as much blood on its flag as Haiti—even more so. Does karma apply to corporations as well? Does Apple have better karma than Microsoft? Does Target have better karma than Wal-Mart? Is there a special place in hell for greedy CEOs? Is there a particular part of purgatory for corrupt politicians? Why does it seem that evil and corruption can continue unhindered if the Law of Karma is so much in effect?

My answer to these questions is that some people and systems are exempted from the Law of Karma. These people operate outside of the Law of Karma—that is the karma that they incur in their present incarnation. However, I believe that these people who are currently exempt will have to deal with karma, the Big K once they die. I believe that the Universe will allow those people who deem themselves exempt to rack up a large karmic debt that will have to be paid in future incarnations. It is like karma on credit—no payments ‘til you die! I personally would rather pay off my karma as I incur it in this lifetime than be facing a mountain of karmic debt once I cross over. So how do these people sign up for the karmic exemption? It is quite simple. They do not have much of a conscience or they lack a conscience entirely. This describes your average psychopath and this is how psychopaths can get away with murder—literally in some cases. It is our conscience that creates the phenomenon of Instant Karma in my opinion. The thief who gets caught is usually the thief with a conscience. His subconscious wills himself to set himself up to get caught so that his karma can go into effect. Maybe the thief will learn, maybe he will not, but by being charged with a crime and suffering through the resulting punishment he is in fact accepting the Law of Karma, albeit subconsciously. Most petty thieves do have consciences and this is why they make up the majority of prisoners.  The bigger, usually white-collar corporate/banker thieves don’t have much of a conscience—at least when it comes to the public at large.  They are able to exist inside of an institutional karma-free bubble that legitimizes and even rewards unfettered greed. The Law of Karma does not apply here. Nor does it apply to governments. They are insulated from Instant Karma as well. I am convinced that the more self-aware one is and the more conscientious they are the quicker their karma will be. It is a cycle that you choose to participate in. You can try to opt out and pay later. However, the subconscious is not easily fooled so if you think you can switch from being a well-intentioned individual to one who operates through evil intent in order to escape Instant Karma you are in for a rude awakening. Once you have chosen a side, you are usually stuck.

Now I must bring astrology into the discussion and I believe that this will help to clarify the subject of karma even more. In astrology, the planet Saturn represents the Law of Karma among other things. Saturn also deals with the material realm. It deals with reality—what is solid and concrete. Saturn also deals with governments and big corporations. Saturn deals with both punishment and reward on a material plane so it does in fact represent the meting out of karma—whether it is good or bad. Now Saturn is the ruler of this world, the Earthly realm and as I just stated previously, Saturn deals with reality. But…as a lot of enlightened individuals are aware, we have the power to create our own reality. Those at the top who are bent on doing evil are well aware of this esoteric truth too and since they celebrate Saturn (aka Satan) and uphold its materialistic tenets, Saturn in turn becomes an ally to them. They work with Saturn’s carnal flow rather than against it. They are in bed with Saturn/Satan and thus they create their own reality that is not subject to the law of their own bedeviled bedfellow. Thus, this world becomes theirs to behold and we become mere subjects of Saturn/Satan and his minions (The Holy Bible touches on this theme a great deal). This is why Satanists believe that they should be able to do whatever they want—including preying upon the weak. Saturn does not have a heart (think the Tin Man from The Wizard of OZ. He represents Jupiter corrupted by Saturn who is represented by the Wicked Witch of the East. Jupiter is a goodwill, benefic planet that represents the Godly force. A similar theme can be found in 2001: A Space Odyssey with the monolith representing Saturn). There is no compassionate soft side to Saturn. Saturn is the punisher, the taskmaster, the materialist and opportunist. Saturn is about death, desolation and degradation. Even at its highest manifestation which includes respect, recognition and honor, Saturn is still a staunch materialist. It has no time (Saturn also rules time) for spiritual concerns or love for humanity. It is because this world is largely influenced by Saturn that those at the top can continue to do evil without karmic retribution. However, once they leave this Earthly/Saturnalia realm, I truly believe that Saturn will turn his back on them and become their punisher instead of material savior.

So to reiterate, the more of a conscience you have the more you will be punished by Instant Karma when doing wrong. The less conscience one has the more debt they will have to pay back in the next lifetime. Sometimes I have to remind myself—especially when I am full of despair or plagued with confusion—that this Earth is the realm of Saturn and that we are subject to its Laws. Once I remember this element of Universal Law everything makes sense. Unfortunately, God is not in control, for God endows us with Free Will. Saturn is the one in control. Always remember that.

The Time Frames of Karma

The Wilde Weekly – The Time Frames of Karma

Instant Karma

Your waking intellect (your personality) brings you instant karma. For example, if you are diligent and responsible, life tends to treat you the same way.

If you uncaring and irresponsible you pull to you all sorts that will treat you erratically and let you down; if you are out of control emotionally, and inattentive, you slip off the sidewalk and sprain an ankle. If you stay in control and focus, you complete your journeys without incident. If you are generous, people will treat you warmly, if you are mean life will seem harsher.

You can easily change your instant karma by taking charge of your life and being more practical and living a healthier life style, but you long-term karma is more trapping.

Beyond the intellect is your subconscious. Very few have much idea what that is or what it contains. You will see it talking to you in your dreams but it may be such an incoherent hotchpotch of images and feelings you have little or no clue what it is saying. Your intellect bend the truth of reality to suit your personality, you see life and its events as you want to see them.

The subconscious is more the ‘real’ you, it accepts your feeling and ideas without the ability to alter them. In simple words you could say, beyond the ego’s denial is the subconscious. It is the perpetual memory of everything that you are and all your inner most secret impulses.

Your intellect ceases at death when your brain stops functioning, but your subconscious lives on in a mirror-world, a kind of spirit world, and that is placed opposite to this one, right is left in the world of the subconscious. It effect, the subconscious is what we call the human soul.

Mid-Term Karma

Mid-term karma are situations that comes to you over a period of years as the result of feelings and attitudes that come up deep from the subconscious that eventually bleed into your life.

For example, let us say, you are a very equitable person but silently deep in your subconscious you have a fear and hatred of black men. You were told as kid the bogeyman is black.

Awake, you feel fine about African people, but inside your soul there is another story, eventually that fear finds you, and are you mugged say, by an African lad in the street. It looks like a random event but it came from up from inside you over many months or years. You may be very bright and positive in daily life but if deep within you believe in failure it will find you.

One more example, let’s say you are sophisticated psychologically and you understand yourself and you have a calm, balanced view of life then that will naturally bring you those things day-to-day.

But if underneath that solid exterior you have a troubled inner child, an unresolved psychological wound that came your formative years, that crying child will bleed into your life and unsettle you.

It will bring with it, hand-in-hand other children that are inside the subconscious mind of other, and they will also be angry, and wounded and out of control. So now you are married to a small boy, instead of a grown-up husband. The impulses from the subconscious come to you in the form of the people that you meet and deal with, those that get close to you.

It’s good to delve into your subconscious for in there is your shadow and the inner child is part of that shadow and discovering it will make you very much more complete and a lot safer.

Long Term Karma

Jung discovered the collective unconscious. He said that all humanity is linked by the same archetypes and symbols: mother, father, life, death, etc. Jung was right.We are all one mind.

And while you have your own karma, which is fairly instant, and you are linked to a more distant collective karma of your society or nation, and that is linked into an even more distant global karma.

The long-term karma of your society or your nation is more trapping and less easy to understand than instant karma, for it can take you to war and ruin, and/or social upheaval. You can’t escape the collective mind-set of your nation and their karma as easily, unless you make moves very early on.

For example, if you were a carpenter in Nagasaki in the 1940s, you had your daily, instant karma, keeping your family fed say, but unbeknown to you a collective karma approached.

If you were aware of your subconscious and that of the people around you, you would have known someone untoward was on its way and you would have left Nagasaki, and many thousands probably did. Others traveled there the day before to bomb. They came to join a specific department in the collective unconscious that accommodates for 200,000 incinerations in one day.

The trick to understanding the collective karma is to listen to what people are saying about their feelings and to watch their innermost impulses. If you watch the news you see the ego running rampant.

It’s all arrogance and disdain and self-interest. So you can see where the national karma might be headed. The trick is to uncouple from the collective feelings and try to discover who you really are?

What are your innermost feelings and impulses about love and humanity? You may discover that you like the shared impulses you see on the news, and if you do, you will have to accept a collective fate. The problem is you don’t know exactly where the collective fate will end up. Is it Nagasaki or Nirvana? Where is the bus going?

For example, it is part of the British mind-set to be right, people are endlessly arguing, sustaining their need to be right. In Britain it is very much more important to be right than to be nice. So people there are rather nasty to each other, while being perpetually right, of course.

But being right is part of how the British hide their shadow, and that shadow world is about to come out of the bag, so the long-term karma of the British is to be found to be terribly wrong. It is also part of their shadow to feel they are very superior and so status is very important to the British.

So the reverse will come about and they will lose their status and become very poor and very inferior. If you don’t feel you are superior or right, and if status doesn’t bother you, the nation’s karma won’t bother you either.

The long-term karma of America is to go bankrupt. Part of her shadow is to treat other nations with disdain and to consume more than the planet can provide, eventually the supply lines will fall apart.

If you are a citizen hoping to avoid her karma you would consume less and make your ego’s needs less demanding, so you could easily handle a sudden down-turn. If you were really sophisticated at karma avoidance you’d be thinking Nagasaki-style and you’d have a plan to move to safety when she goes belly up.

America, realizing she would run out of oil, went to war to capture supply lines and resources belonging to others. Her shadow believes she has a right to sustain her consumption at the expense of others regardless.

The long-term karma of that is she will have no oil at all. It will be taken from her. In the collective subconscious you can see the end result of today’s feelings quite obviously. So karma avoidance would be to get rid of the gas-guzzler while you still can and downsize to a small car or even a scooter or moped.

Each of us has the option of going with the collective karma of our people or you can vote “No” and walk in the other direction, but you have to make a move soon, as a collective karma is most trapping when it arrives, and it is the least easy to fix or escape from.

If you very reliant on others you are linked to their karma. The more you become self-sufficient and self-reliant, the more you are in your own karma and the easier life is to control.

If you can’t make major changes make small ones.

An Expert’s Guide to Mercury Retrograde

thH9BU9894

Here’s a “Cliff Notes” version of an article about Mercury retrograde. Mercury turns retrograde on February 6, 2014. One thing the author failed to mention is the increase in the risk of car accidents and marathon traffic jams (Mercury rules transportation). When Mercury went retrograde in Scorpio last year, traffic was particularly nasty and there was no shortage of accidents.

An Expert’s Guide to Mercury Retrograde

by Eric Francis Coppolino

…I agree with “don’t sign, don’t buy.” That is, when you can avoid doing so. I have experimented with making purchases during or near Mercury retrogrades. Most of the time it turns out I don’t need or don’t use what I purchased. Sometimes it does not work, works strangely or does not do what I intended it to do. So I divide my life into times when I buy things and times when I don’t.

I will usually (as in 99% of the time) make major purchases only with Mercury direct and out of echo phase. There are rare exceptions, but not so many. If you buy something during a retrograde, try not to be too attached to it, or expect a break-in period, while you work out the bugs. Sometimes things work out just fine. Really, most things can wait a week or two or three. If they cannot wait, be extra conscious of all the factors involved in the sale, don’t rush the process, keep your paperwork and make sure there is a good return policy. Choose carefully and get a good one, whatever it is.

As for contracts, it’s not always possible to determine when you sign your lease or make the deposit, but I have been known to make landlords wait for weeks before even leaving a deposit. (Hi Stefan!)

Plan ahead and use what flexibility you have. It’s worth finagling this to your advantage when you can. The operative events are the first payment and the signature on the contract.

If the situation involves significant amounts of money, a real commitment or the potential for a real inconvenience, it might be a good idea to talk to an astrologer who truly knows what they are doing with Mercury retrograde. [I can usually handle this kind of consultation in-and-out much of the year.]

The truth comes out when Mercury stations, either retrograde or direct. Mercury has a way of shaking out information, especially right as it stations. You can count on this. If you’re working on a mystery, or a riddle, or an investigation, or research, or trying to solve any mental puzzle, keep it going till the next Mercury station retrograde. Just to be sure, wait for the second batch of information just as Mercury stations direct. This is one reason you want to wait before signing or buying.

If an item of communication is missed, don’t assume you’re being ignored. Many people shoot off one email and expect a reply. With spam filters, busy people processing hundreds of emails a day and odd errors like emails not arriving, it’s better to give people the benefit of the doubt. Give people a day or two to respond, and if they don’t, send over a friendly one-liner to the effect of, “Hey I emailed you, just want to make sure you saw it.”

If communication gets dicey, pick up the phone. We are getting better at communicating online, but still, it can be difficult to relay feelings or basic concepts, especially with Mercury retrograde. The moment things get weird, such as if there is a misunderstanding, pick up the phone and clarify — before things get out of control or real misunderstandings happen. It’s better not to conduct arguments by email. It has all the sensitivity of sniper fire. Err on the side of being human.

Resolve the past, plan the future. I have found that the best use for Mercury retrograde is to tidy up what you’ve left unresolved in the past. Clean your desk, organize your stuff, contact old friends, go through your email and see if you missed anything important. While you’re at it, collect your ideas and figure out what you’re going to do next. Plot and scheme. Use the various qualities of the retrograde to refine your plan over time, then plan a launch sometime after the station direct.

If it may not be broke — don’t fix it so fast. One phenomenon I’ve noticed during Mercury retrograde is that things seem broken or like they are malfunctioning but are not really. Or, the problem is one thing but you think it’s another. Or, the problem is not as bad as you think. Therefore, before tearing everything apart, or spending a lot of money, or sending anything back to the factory, troubleshoot carefully and try simple solutions. Break out pure logic and apply that as a tool. Look for temporary workarounds and see if the issue resolves on its own. I’m suggesting you avoid solving a problem that doesn’t exist, or worse, making a bigger problem than you thought you had.

Always remember that Mercury is the trickster.

That means he, she or it can be tricky, and you need to use your mind — not have your mind be tricked. Mercury is a kind of a game. Be a good sportsman and keep your sense of humor.

Relationships: Fate, Destiny and Astrological Aspects

chakra lovers

As a spiritual advisor I often receive questions regarding love, relationships, soul mates, etc. This should come as no surprise given the fact that most people have hopes and ambitions of finding a life partner. What most people do not realize and what I try to convey is that we all come into this life with predisposed inclinations toward a particular kind of relationship and partner. This is most evident by the examination of one’s natal chart. The relationship patterns indicated in the chart are hard-wired into the psyche and these patterns will manifest in some way through the outside world. For instance, a person born with their Venus in tight square, opposition, quincunx or sesquisquare with Uranus will more often than not have a difficult time forming a long-term commitment (The conjunction can also produce this effect in some people as well). On the other hand, it may be very easy for this same person to enter into many short-term relationships or flings. In fact, the latter may certainly contribute to the former since the native when in a committed relationship will often be tempted to stray through the ease of forming of new friendships and associations. Men in particular will have a very difficult time with monogamy and commitment with Venus in challenging aspect to Uranus for it is too easy for them to meet new lovers. Now if the Venus/Uranus native is determined to have a long-term commitment the vibration of this aspect will still be present and it is likely to manifest in one or more of the following ways:

  • Great compromises to be made in the name of maintaining one or both of the partners’ level of independence and individuality.
  • Being in a very unique or unconventional relationship/marriage such as marrying cousins or a polyamorous union.
  • A relationship that is fraught with sudden upsets, break ups and a great deal of unpredictability yet somehow the couple manages to stay together long-term.
  • A sexless or emotionally vapid marriage/partnership
  • A marriage or partnership that results in a total upheaval of one’s life–whether for good or bad.

Venus in challenging aspect to Uranus applies to Synastry/Compatibility charts as well and the dynamic may even be more pronounced depending on the tightness of the aspect. A tight opposition between one partner’s Venus and the other’s Uranus for instance can indicate a short romance that begins with a bang and comes to a sudden halt. Now this Venus/Uranus configuration may be able to be overcome entirely once the native achieves spiritual evolution or at least a full understanding of their Divinely-inspired purpose. However, this is still quite rare even in this present day. Most people go through life seeking a fulfilling relationship not being aware of the inherent challenges and limitations unique to their fate. Venus in challenging aspect to Uranus or any aspect for that matter is the Fate, Destiny is what you choose to do with those aspects. Thus, Destiny can be altered at any time, albeit within the parameters of Fate (natal chart aspects).

It would seem that most people do not want to do the work that comes along with creating your Destiny as far as relationships are concerned. Most people just want to step into a “turn-key” relationship. This is a relationship that is ready-made that requires little to no effort. Only certain people will be afforded the luxury of a turn-key relationship. Yes, some people are just lucky in love or you can view it as an accumulation of good relationship karma. These fortunate folks establish the model that others aspire to. You can also call the turn-key relationship a “fairytale romance”. When people fall short of achieving this turn-key relationship, they become dejected not realizing that they’ve been given a different kind of Fate.

This brings me back to the readings I do for people. I always try to help my clients understand the underlying reasons for why they face such hardship in love and relationships. I take it back to the source which in my opinion is the natal chart. I don’t just address the symptoms. I get down to the root cause and this often leads me to the topic of past lives/reincarnation. Knowledge of Self is paramount when it comes to understanding why we are drawn to certain types of people and certain kinds of relationships. For those who are blessed with the ease of a turn-key relationship, more power to you. For the rest of us, relationships may be the process by which we achieve self-discovery and self-actualization through the mirror that is one’s significant other.
