Updated!! The astrology of Chaz Bono and the Aquarian Age

Chaz Bono astrologyAt the age of 42 Chaz Bono has joined the cast of the television program “Dancing with the Stars” – an event which has caused widespread controversy and brought his recent gender reassignment surgery into the forefront of the news.

Update: Astrotheme has a 12:55 am birth time for Chaz Bono which has been identified as part of the Steinbrecher collection which is highly reliable.  I’ve edited the article to add some information based on this time of birth.

When you start to pay attention you will be amazed at how many newsmakers are in key astrological cycles.  28-29: the Saturn return.  41-42: the Uranus opposition.  So without even looking at Bono’s chart we can see that he is in the middle of a dramatic life cycle, the Uranus opposition, that inspires a radical departure from anything in his life where he is not feeling true to himself.

Chaz Bono was born as a woman named Chastity Sun Bono March 4, 1969 (time unknown) in Los Angeles, California.  His Sun is in Pisces, the sign of the shapeshifter – the one who yearns for peace, tranquility, and beauty.  Pisces is the most mutable of the water signs and like water, it tends to adapt to fit the container  in which it finds itself.   This sometimes makes it more difficult for Pisces Sun people to know with certainty who they really are.

Bono, a former lesbian, says she realized she was gay at puberty and came out to her parents at the age of 18.  I have written about the effect of Uranus in the chart in gender issues, and here we see a tight conjunction of Jupiter (representing […]

Androgyny and the Aquarian Age

I have always found it interesting that the worldly definition of “Uranian” according to Wikipedia is

Uranian is a nineteenth century term that referred to a person of a third sex — originally, someone with “a female psyche in a male body” who is sexually attracted to men, and later extended to cover homosexual gender variant females, and a number of other sexual types.

Delving a little deeper, I find that the origin of this association with the word Uranian with the “third sex” originated with a German scholar named Karl Heinrich Ulrich who was what we could today call transgender, meaning he identified as a woman Oscar Wilde in a man’s body.  The term Uranian was picked up by Victorian writers such as Oscar Wilde, who wrote: “”To have altered my life would have been to have admitted that Uranian love is ignoble. I hold it to be noble – more noble than other forms.”  (Ulrich’s chart shows Venus opposite Uranus, and Uranus squares the Moon in Wilde’s chart.)

As we transition into the  Aquarian age, it’s not surprising that gender roles are blurring and homosexuality is becoming more openly accepted.  Aquarius is ruled by Uranus, the planet that inspires us to live a life that is authentically true to ourselves as possible.  Uranus governs radical behavior and rebellion against the status quo, and this includes greater acceptance of lifestyles that don’t fit into the rigid social norms that fall under Saturn’s domain.  With Pluto, lord of destruction and regeneration, traveling through Capricorn, Saturn’s sign, these rigid social structures (Capricorn) are being pummeled and demolished.

As an astrologer I use the term “Uranian” to describe any person or trait that reflects this […]

Into the Matrix in the Aquarian Age

Aquarian age

Children will learn by downloading information directly into their brains within 30 years, the head of Britain’s top private schools organisation has predicted.

Chris Parry, the new chief executive of the Independent Schools Council, said “Matrix-style” technology would render traditional lessons obsolete.

He told the Times Educational Supplement: “It’s a very short route from wireless technology to actually getting the electrical connections in your brain to absorb that knowledge.”

Mr Parry, a former Rear Admiral, spent three years determining the future strategic context for the military in a senior role at the Ministry of Defence.

I’ve been joking about this for years, but it’s somewhat shocking to see it in print! It’s also a little creepy that Mr. Parry worked with the military where perhaps he saw some research in this regard.

In 30 years Pluto will be in Aquarius, and I have no doubt that technology (Aquarius) will have evolved by then to the point where Pluto can wreak some real havoc!!

Our Wired Future – the Age of Aquarius?

This article was originally posted in 2007 – for some reason it never found its way home from Patheos so I’m reposting it here.

We like to think of the Age of Aquarius as the time of peace, love and understanding:

Harmony and understanding
Sympathy and trust abounding
No more falsehoods or derisions
Golden living dreams of visions
Mystic crystal revelation
And the mind’s true liberation
Aquarius!!*

It’s a nice fantasy, and while Aquarius is indeed concerned with issues of fairness and equality and honesty, we mustn’t forget that Uranus, the modern ruler of Aquarius,  is the planet of liberation and revelation, but also of technology. Bill Gates’s keynote speech in 2009 to the Consumer Electronics show delivered a vision of t as provided by Microsoft, which connects everything we need for 21st century life so we never have to leave the house.  Saturn is the traditional ruler of Aquarius, and the tendency of Saturn to be cold and hard takes a bit of the bloom off the fantasy of the Aquarian Age as being a utopia of kindness and love.

Don’t get me wrong – I am a technology addict and acclaimed gadget geek, and I love the connectedness that the wired experience provides. But there is a danger that a wired life of technology is beginning to replace real life. We’re connected via internet, television and cellphones, but how connected are we to our communities and family? At the dawn of the technology revolution it’s very exciting, but my friend Tim Boucher (whose blog is now defunct) looked down this road and delivered this chillingly prescient report:

How many years this will take to happen, I can’t say. Maybe five years? But the world is going to look like this. […]

Lessons from Greece: The end of the Age of Taurus

I just returned from a two-week trip to Greece.  I have been fascinated by Greece my entire life – in college I read a book called The Sibyl about the Oracle at Delphi.  I had an idea even then that I had had a life as a Sibyl, telling the fortunes of passersby in the service of the Mother Goddess.  I never learned much about the history of Delphi, and didn’t know that in Greek times the role of the oracle at Delphi changed.  And here is where I’d like to begin this story.

All of the ancient sites that we visited had at one time been temples to Gaia or some Mother Goddess before being rebuilt as the magnificent temples that we think of as representing the ancient Greece of democracy and the flowering of civilization.  In Delphi in particular, the building which later became the Temple of Apollo was originally a temple dedicated to Gaia, or at least the Goddess who was later called Gaia.  A creature called Python Delpyne, the Python of Delphi, protected the sacred site.  In those days, we learned, the Sibyl spoke with her own voice – she transmitted message directly from the Divine to those who sought her counsel.

Me at the Temple of Delphi

In the legends that have come down to us, the god Apollo slew the dragon Python at Delphi and took over the sacred site.  After the site was rebuilt in honor of Apollo (with a temple to Athena to placate the goddess worshippers), the Sibyl was no more.  Instead she was replaced by an oracle called Pythia, who lost her own voice – she is said to have spoken gibberish […]

Sunday inspiration: Feeding the Wolf with Eris and Pluto

Today the Sun aligns with Eris (disruption) which is in a challenging square to both Pluto (destruction/regeneration) and Saturn (tests and challenges), which flank the South Node of the past.  The symbolism of Eris as the goddess who became angry when she didn’t receive a wedding invitation and retaliated by starting the Trojan War was eerily reflected in the fact that the discovery of Eris correlated to the time when a hanging chad changed the fate of US history and ushered in 20 years of war.  You can see that she’s a wild character under which seemingly random incidents change the course of history.

A square (90 degree angle) between two planets generally denotes conflict that requires a crisis in order to find integration between the two planets.  Between 2015 and 2017, Eris made a square formation to Uranus, planet of “shock and awe” and radical change, coinciding with the 2016 presidential election in the US and Brexit among lots of other crazy things across the globe.

The square of Eris to Pluto won’t culminate until January of 2020, the same time when Saturn and Pluto align in Capricorn.  I’ll be writing more about this soon, but for now I will just say that this is not a time of champagne and strawberries, or for getting lost in fantasies of an Aquarian Age of peace and love.  This is a time for truth-telling and building solid foundations for communities that will not be destroyed in a hurricane or tornado.  This is a time for facing difficult truths and finding peace and tranquility in the simplest things.

I found this in the archives, and it seems to me […]
