Here is the birth chart for the colourful politician re-elected to Parliament on 29.3.12. (Rodden rating: AA) Sun conjunct Pluto in Leo on the ascendant, so this is someone who is going to attract attention, to some seductive and to others repellent. A powerful agent of change, or a manipulator of his image ? Of note given our recent talk on benefics, his election is marked by Jupiter at 8° Taurus transiting conjunct his MC, the most public part of the chart. Transits to the MC I find are often related to 'newsworthy' events in someone's life. BTW this is an interesting chart to drop some asteroids and centaurs into if that's an area of interest.
Embodying a grand trine …
Mars, Jupiter and Pluto are in a transformative, flowing relationship this week, forming an equilateral triangle in the circle of the zodiac. (Mars in Virgo, Jupiter in Taurus, Pluto in Capricorn). If you have a clear sky after dark, stand with feet together, raise right hand to Jupiter (and Venus) in West, raise left hand to Mars in south-east (notably orange and being a planet it doesn’t twinkle). Your feet will be pointing to Pluto (below the horizon). How does this feel ? What is your relationship with these three planets ? If you wish, acknowledge the spirit of the three planets and offer to commune with them to manifest the flow of their archetypes.
Six million dollars ?
A news story today ties in with this week’s Venus-Jupiter conjunction (very visible in western sky in the evening) and our exploration of benefic and malefic planets last week, when we included the birth chart of the actor Lee Majors best known for the “Six Million Dollar Man” (Venus-Jupiter as super-abundance?) He has this conjunction in the sixth house of work. The benefics were both in Aquarius when the TV series first aired.
Majors also has the two malefics squared, something that might traditionally be associated with accidents. His father was killed in a car accident before Majors was born and his mother in a car accident when he was an infant. Majors himself was a keen sportsman but took up acting after recovering from a football accident that had left him temporarily paralysed. His most famous role was the bionic man, technologically rebuilt after a horrific plane accident.
Kris Lee and Graham Boston are astrologers who help run Aquarius Severn.
