Musings on Julian Assange

Julian Assange is the head of the Wikileaks website, the site that recently participated in the biggest intel leak in history just as the Cardinal planetary drama was unfolding this summer.  (This very blog was featured on the Wikileaks website last year as one of the sites being censored by the Australian government).

Assange is a fascinating character that I would love to profile, but he has not revealed his birthdate to anyone.  We only know the year of his birth (1971) and I couldn’t find any verification or source even for that.  One article says that Assange quotes his year of birth as being “in the 1970s” because he wants to “.”

The dramatic story of the life of Julian Assange is a fascinating one.  After his mother’s second divorce he was taken into hiding for five years.  He moved “several dozen” times in his childhood and studied science and math at several colleges and universities but never obtained a degree.  In his teens he was a computer hacker as a member of a group called “International Subversives” which was the subject of a raid in 1991.

As a journalist (Jupiter) he has dedicated his life to exposing the secrets of others, but he is remarkably secretive himself (Pluto/Scorpio).  Much of what is written about Assange’s childhood actually comes from a book called Underground about a hacker named Mendax.  Assange was listed as a researcher for the book.  (.)  Mendax/Assange never knew his father and was shuttled around Australia trying to escape her second husband.  Wikipedia reports that Assange moved two dozen times as a child.

Assange has no real home but instead travels the world and lives out of a rucksack.  A former colleague says of […]

Mel Gibson in car crash

Mel Gibson was involved in a single car crash last night when his Maserati drove off a Malibu road.  Gibson was alone in the car and was not injured.

Mel Gibson is involved in a nasty custody dispute with his former girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva that has been much in the news after recordings of phone conversations were leaked to the press.  Gibson has had a difficult transit of Uranus (shocking events and revolutionary behavior) in opposition to his Moon (emotions, women) since May of last year and while Uranus has been within a half of a degree from that opposition since then the second exact hit occurred on August 13th, just three days before the accident.  (The final phase of the cycle comes next March.)

The astrology of Anne Rice’s religion problem

Anne RiceGothic author Anne Rice announced last week that she was once again renouncing the Christianity of her youth.  Rice was raised as a Catholic but later described herself as an atheist.  During her early literary career she wrote darkly erotic novels under the name Anne Roquelaure before turning her love of New Orleans into a franchise of vampire novels.

Rice (October 4, 1941, New Orleans, time unknown) has a conjunction of Saturn to Chiron in her birthchart.  This is a dramatic combination of planets that often suggests that the native will undergo a series of painful (Chiron) events in their life in order to achieve deep and lasting personal transformation (Pluto).  Certainly this is true for Anne Rice: she lost her young daughter to leukemia in 1972 when Pluto (death and transformation) opposed her Moon (archetype of the mother and emotional nurturing).

Mercury is the planet that governs the manner in which we communicate and process information mentally, and in Rice’s chart Mercury is in Scorpio and in a challenging square to the Chiron/Pluto combination.  This is a Mercury/Pluto “double whammy” because Scorpio is ruled by Pluto and here we have Mercury in Scorpio, ruled by Pluto, in a square to Pluto (along with Chiron).  It’s no wonder that her writings (Mercury) have been a walk on the dark side (Pluto/Scorpio).  This combination also suggests that she thinks (Mercury) deeply (Pluto) about everything, and with her courageous Aries Moon she isn’t afraid of controversy or scandal.

All of this depth and intensity belies the Libra Sun, demonstrating that although the Sun is the biggest single element of the birthchart it is only one piece.   The Libra Sun seeks balance and harmony, but in Rice’s case that […]

The eclipse gave Pink a fall

And turned her a bit red (with embarrassment) after an aerial harness failed to operate properly.  As it happened, the solar eclipse at 19 degrees Cancer was nearly exactly conjunct her natal Mars and in square to her Aries Moon.

Pink is one of those “radical Virgos” you hear about (Amy Winehouse is one), with four planets in Virgo but a wild streak that belies the modesty of the Virgo nature.  Pink has an Aries Moon, so she tends to be an adventurer at heart, and that Moon is squared by Mars, the ruler of Aries, which is in Cancer, ruled by the Moon.  We call this “mutual reception” and it provides a powerful link between Mars and the Moon, instilling an insatiable desire for adventure.

Fortunately Pink was not hurt and is back on tour, demonstrating the instant power of an eclipse to create quick and powerful change.

The astrology of Kelsey Grammer’s latest chapter

Kelsey Grammer astrologyWhen I was in Woodstock a couple of years ago, I saw a vaguely familiar face walk in the door of a shop.  It took me a few moments to realize that it was Kelsey Grammer.  He was friendly and open, with a big smile.  He has a bit of a “Charlie Brown” look – a nice looking face but one that isn’t memorable for its details.  But I was struck by his pleasant and friendly demeanor.

Mr. Grammer is interested in astrology and psychic phenomena, as he reports in in the Wall Street Journal:

Pisces are called indecisive, but you didn’t have trouble making up your mind about doing a big Broadway show.

My Mars is in Aries.

I don’t know what that means.

My ability to make decisions is actually pretty solid because of that warring planet.

It’s nice to see a celebrity publicizing some of the more detailed facets of astrology rather than just the Sun Sign.  In any case, Mr. Grammer is now embroiled in a new divorce from his third wife Camille and there is speculation that her role in The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills may have played a part in that decision.

Mr. Grammer has a well-publicized history of substance abuse (he began drinking when he was nine) that likely resulted from a tragic family life.  His parents were divorced when he was young, and the second time in his life that he saw his father, he was murdered on the front lawn of the family home.  His sister was raped and murdered in 1975, and his (fraternal) twin brother was killed in a freak accident in 1980.  So he can be forgiven for slipping into escapism from […]
