Lachlan Murdoch: Pluto = Sun-Uranus

by Jude Cowell, on behalf of democracy and the common good

Yesterday the news broke of a major transition at the head of Fox and Fox News Corp, that Papa Rupert had anointed son Lachlan Murcdoch to carry on; however, Papa says he'll be "watching." Apparently, Lachlan has been "groomed" since birth to carry the Murdoch family torch - now, into an uncertain future. Word is that Laclan is more authoritarian than his father, but Laclan did, after all, have an experienced teacher. Notable is that yesterday into today, the Sun conjoins Lachlan's natal Pluto so his power potential (carrying his Sun-Uranus 'radical reformist' vibes) are in the spotlight, a global spotlight.

Below, see the aspect grid of multiple squares and oppositions within their dynamic relationship. Even their natal Suns are in opposite signs!

Born with a significant midpoint picture of power, rebellion, radical reforms, and a potential for tragedy (Pluto = Sun-Uranus), Mr. Murdoch the Younger is a radical reformer (R. Ebertin) so this is one spot in his psyche where authoritarianism can creep in. Apparently, Fox and Fox News Corp are in for additional changes and shifts which may have already begun. Let's watch for shake-ups!

Plutocrat Pluto: Power, Control, Manipulation, Exploitation, Extreme Wealth, The Underworld

So here's the natal horoscope of the 'new boss, same as the old boss':

Lachlan Murdoch born September 8, 1971 9:00 pm CET (RR: C) Wimbledon, UK; a sprinkling of study notes are added including a few details re: his Prenatal Solar Eclipse ('PE'), the 9 New South, which repeats on September 21, 2025 @29Virgo conjunct his natal Pluto (see lower right corner):

And here's an aspect grid between father and son:

And btw, do you know that a German Media Baron Aided the Rise of Hitl*r?

German Media Baron Aided Rise of Hitler

Vorwärts, Public domain, via Wikimedia Commons

Forward!, They Said

by Jude Cowell

Today, April 20 2023, "Little Adolf," the Austrian psychopath turns 134 years old in his grave, wherever it may be. But to be more specific, his Solar Return 2023 actually perfects tomorrow, April 21, 2023 at 6:02:11 am CEDT in Berlin with his natal Sun (00Tau48) conjunct Phaethon rising (unprepared for leadership and Sun at a degree of violence).

Radical planet of anarchy, sedition, and zealotry, Uranus, rises in his 2023 Solar Return 1st house @17Tau52, one degree beyond Herr Adolf's natal Venus-Mars conjunction @16Taurus+, a planetary duo active during our Midterms 2022 Lunar Eclipse when 'maga' Republicans managed to take over the House of Representatives.

In fact, Republican Rep. Jim Jordan has been in New York City showcasing his maga efforts for Trump, and a Trump-appointed judge has handed Jordan a legal gift which only adds fuel to the orange monster's gas tank for more 'Big Lie' gas lighting ahead.

Yet none of the above are reasons for this Friday post.

What I want to share with you is that while reading about the rise of Herr Adolf, I came across the name of the media baron, industrialist, and politician who, among others, aided the Austrian's rise to power. Soon sidelined, his name is Alfred Hugenberg. Holding multiple official positions in the German government, Hugenberg helped Hitler become Chancellor on January 30, 1933, Germany's first goose-step toward Nazism. Yet Herr Hugenberg, who had studied law and economics, had lost his political clout with Hitler by the end of 1933 but continued serving as a "guest" member of the Reichstag (parliament).

And like other of Hitler's early enablers, Hugenberg miscalculated bigly that Herr Adolf would be easily controlled once in power. Might this be echoed by certain assumptions made by the Republican Party in 2015 and 2016 concerning you-know-who?

Related: Reichstag Fire Horoscope and Donald Trump.

Now if the initial support of publisher Hugenberg for Hitler (until Alfred was tossed aside!) reminds you of Murdoch for Trump (until Trump turned on Fox News toward the more conducive outlets, NewsMax and OANN - while actually it was more a case of Murdoch turning against Trump for not conceding his 2020 loss) - then basically we're on the same history-rhyming page. Parallels and cosmic time links exist between the two men for a curious seeker to discover, not the least of which is the repetition of Rupert's natal 4 South Eclipse on Electoral Vote Count Day 2020.

So subsequently, an idea ocurred to me to look for Alfred Hugenberg in the back of The Sabian Symbols in Astrology (M.E. Jones #ad) and there he was: birth time and all. So in case you're one of the curious, here's Hitler-enabler Alfred's birth data according to Dr. Jones, plus, a few astro-notes and contact details:

Alfred Christian Alexander Hugenberg

June 19, 1865 11:45 pm LMT

Hanover, Germany

Prenatal Solar Eclipse Total @5Tau21 in the 11 South Saros Series: 'systems and methods fail; unions suddenly end; any blocks are tragically or violently removed' (B. Brady).

Natal Ascendant 16Pis23; Midheaven 24Sag53 conjunct Jupiter Rx @23Sag32 (publishing) opposing at IC his Sun @28Gem34 conjunct Uranus @29Gem34 = an unpredictable non-conformist (A. Oken); Hugenberg's natal North Node of destiny conjuncts Herr Adolf's natal Ascendant in late Libra (a personal relationship; estrangement or separation); Alfred's natal Venus @16Tau43 conjuncts Adolf's natal Venus-Mars conjunction so he may have seemed charming to Alfred early on; however, they share a Mars-Saturn contact which suggests potentials for 'destructive energy, separation, and cases of death' (R. Ebertin).

Publishers Hugenberg and Murdoch

Meanwhile, the natal planetary contacts between the two demagogue-supporting publishers, media baron Alfred Hugenberg ('AH'), born 1865, and media titan Rupert Murdoch ('RM'), born 1931, are worth mentioning. They include:

RM Moon @24Sag08 conjunct AH natal Midheaven-Jupiter Rx (publicity, plus, money via publishing); instinctively, Rupert knew what had to be done for his natal Moon was 'eclipsed' by the 4 South Eclipse of December 14, 2020 when sore-loser Trump's belly-achin' shifted into overdrive. Driven by desperate motivations from near and far, sensitive old Donald refused to concede, and he was, and remains, bu*t-hurt.

RM 4 South Total Prenatal Solar Eclipse @27Lib46 (October 21, 1930) conjunct AH natal North Node - and conjunct Hitler's natal Ascendant. Now as you may remember, 4 South ('strong emotions over money and/or relationships; frustration; ending alliances' - B. Brady) is the series in which the Total Electoral Vote Count Eclipse manifested on December 14, 2020 @23Sag08, and which functioned as a cosmic signal for promoting the resentful, vengeful Herr Trump's 'Big Lie' that allegedly 'justified' his violent coup attempt of January 6, 2021 against the US Congress - not to "stop the steal" but to perpetrate it.

Gavin Newsom and Election Day 2024

Re: Gavin Christopher Newsom October 10, 1967 5:13 am pdt San Francisco, California

by Jude Cowell

Anyone who has viewed the AA-rated natal horoscope of California Governor Gavin Newsom might have marveled at his Uranus-Pluto Conjunction in Virgo rising just underneath his natal Ascendant (21Vir14). Bascially, Uranus in Virgo suggests an urge to reform, and a good intellect, yet tactless frankness can be a negative. (Maturity and experience have mitigated such an off-putting tendency although gaffes remain possible.) Then his Pluto in Virgo hints at scientific interests, the inquisitive mind of a collector, and reveals one who achieves much with simple means (R. Ebertin).

Of course, the transformative Uranus-Pluto Conjunction peaked during the mid-1960s prior to the Governor's birth in 1967. Yet it's still influential upon him, no doubt, with its reformist energies, elevation of consciousness tendencies, inventiveness, and technical and mechanical skills which resonate well with his Prenatal Solar Eclipse ('PE') in reliable Taurus in the 5 North Saros Series with themes of 'visions, hunches, and prophetic dreams' (B. Brady).

The last time a 5 North Eclipse manifested was on June 10, 2021 @20Gemini so 5 North themes will be re-activated and increased by a conjunction from Election 2024 Jupiter which denotes that ethics and moral values are involved, plus, issues relating back to Summer 2021 may resurface (not that they've entirely gone away). For context, you may wish to check out events of June 2021, a very busy and significant month across the globe.

Now just for the sake of comparison, here's a bi-wheel of charts with Gavin Newsom's natal horoscope (inner) and the Election Day 2024 Horoscope (outer) that I tend to use, set for Election 2024 Moon's entry into governmental Capricorn, the sign of Gavin Newsom's ambitious Moon as it happens, and suggesting that voters will be in a serious, no-nonsense mood on Election Day 2024 although some folks might entertain unusual perspectives (Venus out-of-bounds) or, will 'sit this one out':

Highlighted in green is beneficial Jupiter precisely conjunct his natal Midheaven ('MC'), the visible point of Career and Public Status, and in Gemini, signifying many contacts and communications with the public (MC). However, transit Jupiter simultaneously opposes Newsom's natal Mars (conjunct his IC), a transit that can disrupt the vibes of Jupiterian good fortune at MC. Perhaps his domestic scene will go less well than professional matters in 2024 which may or may not involve national politics. However, some hint of overblown or extravagant projects being 'too large to handle' could be involved, even collapse, at this time. Positive support from others could naturally help with any negative possibilities, yet we know that 'this too shall pass' as planetary transits and conditions always do.

Meanwhile, 2024 Venus @22Sag40 (sign of the outsider) crosses into his 4th house (home renovation?) where she finds natal Mars (20Sag53) which suggests meeting someone new, but may also indicate joint ventures with allies and/or partners. This transit will be favorable for political and/or financial activities along with the planet of good fortune, Jupiter, at Midheaven, aided by the fact that Governor Newsom's natal Jupiter @28Leo28 conjuncts royal Regulus (a promise of fame, recognition, and high position) and leads a Locomotive shape of his natal planets (followed by pleasant Venus) so that great determination toward success is indicated. These potentials should be the case for anyone wanting a successful career in politics, and theatrical talent is always a plus.

Then through our astrological lens, we see that Governor Gavin Newsom is an Air-Earth Sun Libra-Moon Capricorn personality combination of conscious-unconscious energies. Internal blockages via his Sun-Moon square suggest a need to focus on objectives, along with potentials for pragmatism, diplomacy, and the skillful management of people (what better for a politician?) In fact, this particular blend is "the just politician"! Newsom is formidable yet likeable, shrewd, fair, and a believer in law and order. Ambitious and determined to achieve, Governor Newsom prefers leading a team yet he also likes his solitude. Possessing high standards, he tends toward perfectionism, and may show a streak of snobbery upon occasion.

Now here's a quote from a political activist who also was born with the same Sun Libra-Moon Capricorn blend, Bobby Seale:

"We must start coming forth with our energies...our intellects, and our abilities to see what is right and what must be done, so the suffering will stop, and the phrase 'life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness' begins to make some human sense."

Now admittedly as an East Coaster, I personally know little of Gavin Newsom who began serving as governor of California in January 2019 just as his Wikipedia page informs us. And many folks know that until 2006, he and Kimberly Gilfoyle were married for five years before she became - whatever it is she's become. Note that Ms. Gilfoyle's natal horoscope (March 9, 1969 10:29 pm pst San Francisco, CA) is also rated AA for accuracy and reveals a steamy, even scalding Water-Fire Sun Pisces-Moon Sagittarius personality blend which can tend toward misplaced enthusiasms yet can show compassion and a very creative imagination. Then does it make any sense that Kimberly Gilfoyle shares her natal personality blend with none other than social meddler extraordinaire Rupert Murdoch?

The Democratic Party and the Summit for Democracy

by Jude Cowell

December 10, 2021

On October 14, 2014 I published the 1801 Democratic Party Horoscope for "future reference" (sans details; data based on the Papers of Thomas Jefferson). On the image I penned its Sun-Moon blend, "Sun AQ-Moon Aries = 'self + society" which to me suggests the less selfish focus of most if not all Democrats as opposed to the greedy, self-serving GOP. Yet as you know, there are multiple versions of horoscopes online for the Democratic Party and one that expert astrologer Jessica Adams has written about is the January 8, 1828 Portsmouth, New Hampshire chart which is, she writes, the time "the Democrats were born." Why, there's even a Democratic Party Horoscope set for 1792!

Then in similar fashion, Horoscopes for Republican Party's founding are at least as varied and thus, confusing, although the chart for March 20, 1854 6:30 pm LMT, Ripon, WI is a favorite of many with Sun conjunct Aries Point and Moon in Sagittarius. Well, perhaps Sacred Geometry being "a thing" during America's founding era as an esoteric part of Freemasonry, the confusion over which founding horoscopes for either political party are correct could be purposeful. Meanwhile, erstwhile astrologers with political leanings trudge onward.

With the Biden Agenda is a Democratic Saturn in Play?

So basically, this pre-weekend post includes a reminder that, at least for those who use the February 17, 1801 Democratic Party Horoscope, the "The Tower Eclipse" of 2018 with its 'collapse and rebuild' themes eclipsed the natal Saturn of the Democratic Party. And now in 2021 we have President Biden's "Build Back Better" agenda and legislation which seems to me necessary results of the cosmic and earthly energies that We The People are now mired within (like kittens in string!) and, like the mythical phoenix, must rise from. So my thought is that perhaps the eclipse of the Democrats' 1801 Saturn, planet of government, authority, austerity, responsibility, authenticity, consolidation, and laws, marked the required rebuilding as being a task for a Democratic president to manage, particularly since Republicans always overspend like drunken sailors when in control of government resources, then leave the messes they create for the next Democrat in the White House to repair. And of course, considering President Biden's advanced age, he's in the Saturnian phase of life of the senex, or, the old man) - and wisdom and experience are both favored words of old man Saturn.

But Astrological Saturn Also Stands for Obstacles and Delays

Meanwhile, wealthy plutocrats and their political handmaidens on-the-take (whether Rs or Ds) constantly gaslight the American people via A Flag That Turns Into an Eagle That Crows" with faked patriotism and a sinister brand of nationalism if the 'economic royalists' deign to show any patriotism at all - and if democracy's nemesis, Rupert Murdoch, allows it.

Yet despite all this, one of my fondest hopes for my country as 2021 draws to a close is that President Biden's global Summit for Democracy, in progress as I type (Dec 9 and 10, 2021), will become a major part of our national renewal as it highlights corrective solutions to the current Democracy vs Fascism/NeoNazism stalemate especially since difficult Solar Eclipses from 1932 and 1933 will soon repeat in 2022 and 2023. The purpose of the Summit is billed as, "to set forth an affirmative agenda for democratic renewal." To the ears of this Child of the Revolution, it sounds excellent!

And we should note that word is, the uninvited Russia and China are most unhappy that the Summit is being held at all. In fact, China has already caused trouble by somehow forcing Pakistan not to attend!

Rupert Murdoch's Solar Eclipse will soon repeat!

Murdoch's Natal Chart and the 2020 Return of his Prenatal Solar Eclipse

by Jude Cowell

According to The Independent, Murdoch-Trump ties go back to the 1980s when Murdoch's New York Post made playboy Trump a gossip column regular. But these days Mr. Murdoch has a dim view of the man he describes as an a**hole he can't get off the phone, plus, other choice descriptions which appear in Michael Wollf's book Siege: Trump Under Fire, published in June 2019 as a sequel to his Fire and Fury.

Anyway, this post is not about their relationship as much as to display the natal horoscope of media mogul Rupert Murdoch (below) and note that his Prenatal Solar Eclipse ('PE') in the difficult 4 South Saros Series will again manifest on December 14, 2020--this time @23Sag08, conjunct Murdoch's 12th house Moon (12th house of Hospitals? Moon = physical body; well, he is of an advanced age, born in 1931).

And yet there's more to Rupert's eclipse story and it involves--you guessed it--Donald Trump. For 4 South eclipse details check out a previous post concerning the December 14, 2020 Eclipse which 'hits' Trump's natal chart, too. Apparently karmic cosmic links exist between the two men which I'd never noticed before until I nosed into Murdoch's Prenatal Solar Eclipse.

So below is a view of Murdoch's March 11, 1931 Natal Horoscope with details penned upon the chart in my usual messy fashion for those who wish to read them. Highlighted in green (lower left) you'll see that his recent Saturn Return (@21Cap04, 1st house) occurred on December 29, 2019 and was soon conjoined by the January 12, 2020 Saturn-Pluto Conjunction (22Cap46--conjunct Trump's natal Vertex 22:51, yet another karmic indicator). Power and control issues abound for Murdoch these days along with regrets over the past and a potential for limitations on his ambitions. (See below for a note on his natal Saturn-Pluto opposition).

Additionally, Mr. Murdoch has already passed his Uranus Return/s which perfected in 2014 into 2015 (highlighted in blue, lower right), a watershed time when the past no longer holds as much power over him and he began to feel an urge for freedom--and appropriately, in June 2015 came the announcement that he was stepping down as company CEO, handing the reins to his son, but would still "have a voice" in company operations:

Born in 1931 when Saturn and Pluto opposed one another, Rupert Murdoch's life has been one of dissatisfaction and a deep urge to "annihilate existing forms" (A. Oken) and to destroy the existing order. With the harsh, cruel opposition coming at the height of the Great Depression and the rise of fascism in Europe and Asia, his life and goals are inspired by a potential for economic structures to be uprooted so that new forms can take their place, a goal of destruction that transit Pluto in Capricorn willingly under girds as I type, and we careen toward America's first-ever Pluto Return/s. My point here is that the continuation of this 'new order' process is what we are now reaping, driven by such men as Rupert Murdoch and with mouthpiece Donald Trump propagandizing and gas lighting at us from behind the bully pulpit--the very place where he does not belong.

So if you wish, view the Fascism Rising Solar Eclipse of 1933 in the 7 North Saros Series which repeats in 2023 - because forewarned is forearmed!

DC Horoscopes: February 2019 New and Full Moons

Left: New Moon @15AQ45 February 4, 2019 White House Washington DC; Hour of Mars @23Ari31 in the very visible 10th house and approaching 'wild card' planet Uranus. This explosive planetary pair blend their energies during 'dangerous times' and there is US natal Saturn (legalities, justice system, Robert Mueller) conjunct the New Moon IC, the Basis of the Matter. This New Moon phase culminates with the Full Moon of February 19, 2019 @00Vir42 conjunct royal Regulus ('success if revenge is avoided') and the natal Ascendant (and Mars) of Donald J. Trump.

Now as you see, transit Saturn (highlighted in blue, 6th house) @15Cap22 conjoins the Prenatal Solar Eclipse ('PE') prior to this New Moon, an eclipse which perfected on the evening of January 5, 2019 and will forever be imprinted upon the opening of the 116th Congress with its theme of 'joining a new or unusual group and gaining a great deal' (paraphrasing Brady's Predictive Astrology). Our newly elected House representatives of the Democratic persuasion certainly did that!

Below right is the February 19, 2019 Full Moon conjunct Regulus horoscope which shows asteroid Nemesis rising ('the unbeatable foe' or, 'divine retribution') in Gemini along with gold-hoarding Midas. The Full Moon falls across the Virgo-Pisces victim-savior axis and squares fixed star Alcyone ('something to cry about'). Follow the link for my original post which was composed prior to the brutal Trump Shutdown which began at midnight on December 22, 2018 so I'm thinking the cosmic picture here refers to the suffering of the American people and Trump's sabotage of the US economy using as an excuse his vanity project 'the wall' that he and Republicans could have funded and built during the two years they had control of House and Senate. The timing of the Trump Shutdown leveled extreme stress upon federal workers coming just before Christmas, and I believe that Trump was encouraged to time it to prevent much of the 116th Congress/Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House publicity from taking over the airwaves. Plus, Trump wanted a 'showdown' with Speaker Pelosi and to present her with a crisis to deal with instead of the progressive agenda (he hoped)--why else wait for her swearing in as Speaker? Of course, Sean Hannity of Fox News and the other Murdoch shills advised him of this necessity and as you know, power-grabber Trump hates it when someone or an event takes away what he considers 'his' spotlight. Alcyone's tears of affected federal workers and others with no paychecks with which to feed their children are of no consideration for we know what Trump has already done to children.

Yet predictably, if Big T can figure out how to end his Shutdown without too much humiliation, he'll attempt to claim the 'savior' side of the Virgo-Pisces axis! That's unless 25% of the US government inactive is the permanent condition the GOP has longed for all these years. If so, 25% may be just the start with full collapse their ultimate goal (and Putin's).

So please enlarge the images for more chart details for relief may be in sight because the expected revelations from the Mueller investigation are apparently part of the lunations' revealing and uncovering functions in February which will lead into the March 2019 Lunations of Crisis for New and Full Moons can uncover inconvenient facts and secrets much as Solar and Lunar Eclipses do in their disruptive Uranian 'wild card' sort of way. And often it takes a crisis to lead ultimately to improvement!

Rupert Murdoch v Pluto; Sean Hoare found dead 7.18.11

A Busy Weekend for the Murdoch Empire as Pluto Exacts His Due

by Jude Cowell

Breaking News: at 10:40 am today (7.18.11) London police were called to the address of a former News of the World reporter Sean Hoare found mysteriously dead which is said by officials to be "unexplained but not suspicious". What??? A suicide? Well, with Pluto on the scene and such high stakes, perhaps other participants in the Murdoch phone hacking probe should think seriously about watching their backs.

My original post begins here:

In the past powerful, publishing Pluto has been a close friend of Rupert Murdoch, but these days? Not so much. Media baron Rupert Murdoch's phone hacking and police bribery troubles aren't over and a new round of ills may issue from Murdoch's and son's appearances before the UK Parliament this week.

Also to be questioned by Parliament will be Murdoch's protege Rebekah Brooks who was arrested by London police over the weekend after volunteering to speak with investigators--apparently her arrest was a big surprise since her willing if strategic offer to give information did not head off an arrest.

Yes, the distraction from this story, important though it is, promises to be long lasting and contentious. In fact, one of the subtitles on Mr. Murdoch's Wikipedia page lists the 'News International phone hacking scandals' as "2006 - ___ " for no one knows where it will end or how many careers will be destroyed in the process. UK Met police officials have begun resigning, too, as BBC News reports.

In Australia, it is reported that NewsCorp shareholders have called for Murdoch to step down from his position. Ouch.

And today, whistleblower Sean Hoare has turned up mysteriously dead!

Yes, transiting Pluto through structural Capricorn does tend to take down leaders as we've seen across the globe of late - in the East and in the West! One of the scandal-related resignations has dragged UK PM David Cameron into the muck and it will be interesting to hear what Ms. Brooks has to say about David Cameron and Number 10 Downing Street when she's questioned.

Will truth be told or suppressed?

Meanwhile, on this side of the pond, the Murdoch-owned Wall Street Journal is hoping to deflect criticism of Mr. Murdoch by leveling charges against the Guardian (which originally broke the story of NewsCorp's habit of phone-hacking) and the BBC. No conflict of interest there, right?

Well, if you hanker for some Astrology on the matter, do check out Lynn Hayes' analysis of Mr. Murdoch's Mars-Saturn opposition and more, plus, Darkstar Astrology provides astrological insights such as: transformative Pluto crossed Rupert Murdoch's natal Ascendant last November.

In addition, the influences of the 'double eclipses' we're under now (June 1, 2011 @ 11Gem02 and July 1, 2011 @ 9Can12, a rare event) are leading to revelations galore as many cover-ups are in process of being uncovered. Of course, Gemini is the sign of The News, reporters, and communications! The June eclipse @ 11Gem02 triggered his natal Mercury/Neptune midpoint (actors, deceitful people, liars - Ebertin) so we have:

Natal Mercury/Neptune = Sun: being deceived; impressionability; feelings of completion as dreams materialize (oops! jc); evaluation of hunches.

N Mercury/Neptune = Moon: opening receptivity to channeling information from non-physical sources (such as from other peoples' private cell phone calls? jc); a misguided imagination; a deceived or deception woman. (Ebertin; Munkasey.)

And the current Solar Eclipse @ 9Can12 is 'eclipsing' Murdoch's natal Jupiter with his company's stock prices falling!

In spite of it all, I shall not spend much time astrologically on this success-at-any-cost FOX News magnate (and Cato Institute board member) except to give a little info on his Pre-Natal Eclipse (PE), and the Sabian Symbol for his Sun in Pisces.

Australian media mogul Rupert Murdoch was born on March 11, 1931 during the 4 South Saros Series with the eclipse prior to his birth occurring on October 21, 1930 @ '28 Libra'.

The initial (very first) eclipse in this Series manifested on March 19, 1624 (NS) @
'29Pis'--basically conjunct the Aries Point of Fame and Recognition. Pluto in 1624 was @ 14Tau45, the degree of US Inaugural Ascendants each January 20th of our presidential inaugurations at noon since 1937--the Oath of Office. Perhaps this will turn out to be significant for the White House, perhaps not. I refer not just to Obama administration but to that of George Bush under whose terms much of the phone hacking occurred.)

From Brady's Predictive Astrology, we find that the flavor of 4S is quite difficult: very strong emotions concerning relationships and finances; anger, lust; there's a sense of fatedness as individuals are caught up in relationship events beyond their control (I bet Rupert hates that! jc); potentially there's a sudden desire to end relationships; emotions are blocked or frustrated; real action should be avoided until events settle down.

Well, events are not settling down and seem to be escalating with FOX News phone hacking possible. If there's a bigger agenda here for someone behind the scenes of this scandal, it makes me wonder just who wants to take down the media organization and politically infused empire of Rupert Murdoch. It should be instructive to see who or which groups ultimately benefit from his empire's demise, the reports of which for now may be overly exaggerated.

Now for Mr. Murdoch's natal Sun @ '21Pisces' with a most interesting Sabian Symbol in light of his known dealings with China. Of note is a 2008 article concerning Murdoch's 'shattered dreams' dealings with the Communist country.

Natal Sun @ '21 Pisces' = "A Little White Lamb, a Child, and a Chinese Servant."

Such is the solar essence of Mr. Rupert Murdoch.


Modern manifestations of Solar Eclipses in the 4S Series: 1912, 1930 (his PE), 1948, 1966, 1984, 2002 (@ '12Sag'--"A Flag That Turns into an Eagle That Crows"--conjoins US natal ASC in the Sibly chart, and conjuncts the degree of the Great Conjunction of Pluto and Chiron--plutocrats; plutocracy; oppression--in 1999); next eclipse in the 4S Series will be in 2020.

Albert Einstein: Sun Pisc-Moon Sag

Albert Einstein said, "Unthinking respect for authority is the greatest enemy of truth."

And one of my personal favorites of his quotes: "The important thing is not to stop questioning."

Born in Ulm, Germany on March 14, 1879 (NS = Gregorian calendar), Albert Einstein's birth registration indicates the time he entered the time/space continuum on Earth to be 11:30 am (-0:40) which SolarFire gives as 11Can38 rising, Mc 12Pis50, with 10th house Sun 23Pisc55, 6th house Moon 14Sag32, at an Hour of Mars 26Cap55 in 7th house (quarrels with partners; marriage disagreements for which he is well-known. Not a good husband, our Albert.)

The steamy Water-Fire blend of Sun Pisc-Moon Sag is indicative of one who is romantic, moody, volatile, and artistic. Steam sterilizes and purifies but can also scald! Water-Fire's shadow (unconscious side) describes one who cannot be objective in his views and uses an intensely urgent and passionate approach.

In fact, Einstein's Pre-Natal Eclipse Series, the one he was born into, is the 7 North, which Brady's Predictive Astrology gives as 'a very sensual family of eclipses; hidden passions may catch people off-guard and confront them with very deep passions which may have been hidden for many years.'

Yes, Albert was quite a ladies' man, wasn't he? Except to his wife who early on in his career shared his intellectual pursuits. But Sun Pis-Moon Sag doesn't like to be 'tied down' so I believe he resented marriage and the responsibility of children.

With his natal Saturn (the father) in its fall in Aries, his own papa may not have been much of a bargain either - little Albert had to depend on himself. Sad that he basically did the same to his own children.

FYI: a Solar Eclipse in the 7N Series last manifested at 19Ari06 on April 8, 2005; next occurrence will be on April 20, 2023 at '30Aries.'

Sun Pisc-Moon Sag is also noted for breadth of intellect, a far-ranging creative imagination, and deep self-confidence. Enthusiastic and ironically humorous, this blend can make everyone laugh and feel that a *bff has been found.

Here is an adventurer and restless seeker of truth (Sag) with a religious bent but not for organized religions (Pisces.) A strong social awareness is present, along with a streak of mysticism that can bring a reverential fervor to all endeavors.

Einstein's natal chart shows a Mercury/Saturn conjunction in early Aries, sign of the pioneer, which gives much structure and logic to the thought patterns as well as scientific and mathematical talents, fore-sightedness, and strong powers of visualization.

The **Images for Integration for this blend are:

A black woman priest in the confessional hears a tale of woe from a white converted scientist and they fall in love...Einstein's Theory of Relativity.

(The last word picture is for obvious reasons!)

Sun Pisc-Moon Sag is shared natally by some interesting folk: Rupert Murdoch, Copernicus, Jackie Gleason, Nijinsky, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Ishmael Reed, Victor Hugo, and...Billy Crystal!

And btw, in photos of #Einstein you've noticed his limpid Pisces eyes (Pisces Sun with watery Cancer ascending) which some might call bedroom eyes!

*bff = 'best friend forever'....but you knew that!
