John Lennon: still missed
John Lennon born Oct 9, 1940 6:30 pm BST (most often used birth time), Liverpool, England, assassinated Dec 8, 1980 10:50 pm EST NYC; died 11:30 pm with transit Chiron, the Wounded Healer or The Wound 14Tau22 Rx, conjunct US Presidential Inaugural Ascendant (ASC = the Office of the President.)
Lennon's assassination took place just before a Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn, the societal pair associated with US political parties, aka Republicans and Democrats.
Jupiter conjunct Saturn on Dec 31, 1980, 9Libra30, conjoined Lennon's natal Mars/NN midpoint (meeting a gun? his n 8th cusp: 29Sco38); and his pre-natal Solar Eclipse, 15 North Series: 'joy through commitment and relationships; good news concerning partnerships; parenthood'. (Brady's Predictive Astrology.)
John Lennon's natal chart shows a Jupiter/Saturn conjunction in Taurus (both Rx) in First House of Self and Physical Body, emphasizing his interests in Politics, world peace, and societal improvement. The evening of his murder, the above-mentioned tr Chiron was conjoining his Jupiter/Saturn conjunction.
A la an anxious President Nixon: Lennon was under threat of deportation from the US if he didn't tone down his peace protests (like you can have too much desire for peace.) Well, governments don't like that much especially when it affronts or challenges their huffy authority and criminal war activities.
Images for John's natal Sun Libra/Moon AQ:
'A group of literary radicals stage a "love in" to protest against government military policy (this one devised in his and Yoko's honor, no doubt)...In an elegant opera house, a trendy jazz musician performs ragtime with a symphony orchestra.'
(Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Charles and Suzy Harvey.)
This blend gave him a deep social conscience and a sense of belonging to the human family.
Which doesn't explain most of today's politicians, does it? Aliens, I figure...not part of the family with their bestial natures uppermost and waging war against the rest of humanity.
August 18, 1965 during the Uranus/Pluto conjunction: this reluctant astrologer saw the Beatles in concert in Atlanta. My friend, Becca, and I were the only ones in the entire stadium who weren't screaming--we didn't want to miss a word or a note. And if you think "the lads" didn't notice you'd be wrong because Paul answered my sudden head-nod during their last song with one of his own! ;p
Missing you still, John,
