Well there has been a lot of delays getting this video out but here we are. How well suited(!) is Robert Downey Jr. to play Ironman? Well it turns out he was ideally cast for this role. A question in my mind is how much of his success with this movie can we “attribute” to his horoscope? If nothing else there are some amazing points of resonance within his horoscope and the Ironman character.
I was interested in this horoscope because it was another high tech character and I wondered if there were similarities with Arnold Schwartzenegger (I can actually spell this) and the Terminator character he made famous. I can tell you I was more than a little surprised, but I invite you to watch the video to see why.
For some time now I have been tracking the horoscopes of movie stars and looking at the roles they have played. I must say that the stonger the fit a horoscope has with a character being played, the greater the success that seems to follow. Frankly because of this interest I intend to do more such videos which I hope you find as fascinating as I do.
For those of you that have been following these videos please be aware that I do not comment on all the points of “resonance” as there are just too many; but look for more of these points yourselves. It’s a fun way to learn more about astrology.
Well its been a tricky time. I have had an unusual amount of difficulties with my computer systems. Consequently there has been a more than average delay in producing my videos. Unfortunately this fits with the current astrological climate which is antagonistic to all things technological. The placememnt of Uranus (technology, innovations, all things to do with flying and even famous people) is opposed by Saturn (loss, limitation, adversity).
Basically Uranus is in Pisces and Saturn is in Virgo. These signs are “opposed” to each other meaning that planets in one of these signs tend conflict with planets in the other sign. This of course intensifies the closer the planets are to being exactly opposite each other. This happened early in February 2009 when nearly every part of the world suffered extemely adverse (Saturn) and unexpected (Uranus) weather conditions.
On top of this you may have noticed an unprecedented number of aircraft disasters; this also fits in with the current astrological climate. So if you are planning to fly somewhere and feel the need to pick a better time to fly then you may care to wait until Novemeber of 2009 at which time this inclement astrological weather will have eased substantially – although there may be an increase in lost luggage scenarios due to the new relationship of Saturn in Libra with Uranus in Pisces.
Anyway, I’m blaming the stars for not getting a video out sooner. Right now I have to go an reinstall my computer system – or else wait until November!
Okay, so how do you handle with this? Pay close attention to procedures and be “extra ready” to deal with the unexpected. Also try to avoid sticking only to the tried and true formulas and don’t get too heavily involved in utilizing more advanced technologies. You can also check if your personal horoscope plugs into the problem or if it actually shields you. In other words check out what ways you are vulnerable and and in what ways are you safe.
As an example I tried to add in too much advanced (Uranian) software which seems to have conflicted with the tried and true (Saturn) system that would have been enough to get the job done.
Okay so if you don’t have access to good astrological information, then …
if you are a Piscean, Virgoan, Sagittarian or Gemini (and especially if you were born around the 10th of March, September, June, December) then take extra care. To do this; pay attention, use your particular abilities, skills and sensitivities to stay alert and aware of what is going on. Trust your judgement but don’t fight your doubts – try respecting them.
In my next video I will be looking at how astrology can be an amazing indicator of an actor’s potential for success in “the right” movies. Personally I think you will be more than slightly amazed.
Being a Leo the willingness to get attention and shine brightly is well emphasised in Madonna’s horoscope. However, an interesting feature of her horoscope is the negative attitude to religion that shows with the stressed connection between Venus (valueing) and Neptune (religion). Basically, her horoscope points clearly to disliking the religious elements she experienced in childhood. This, combined with Leo, signals a willingness to announce her disdain to the world. Doing so with her stage name also fits astrologically, as she has a powerful and positive relationship with the two most negative points in a horoscope, the South Node and Saturn.
Saturn and the South Node working positively with her core nature (the Sun) indicate a great capacity to be tough, disciplined and a willingness to strip away anything she perceives as not relevant. Also watch the South Node as it is surprising how often it’s “stripping away” properties end up translating to stripping off clothing. Since it features very strongly in Madonna’s horoscope it is not surprising (to me, at least) that she has done the same thing physically in classicly overt Leo ways.
Yet within her horoscope there is a positive focus on religion, too. However, this element focuses more on power factors that are associated with arcane religious practices.
Princess Diana had the perfect aspect for delivering compassion. The connection between her Sun (core nature) and Neptune (compassion and service) was the strongest in her horoscope.
It suggests a person that would have felt the ideals of motherhood and aspired to be that person. However these two points in her horoscope also connect with Chiron (the planet which is emerging as the ruler of relationships). It spells an idealized view of what a relationship can be. For quite a while it was presumed she was the Princess of fairy tales.
What went wrong? While the structure for a rich relationship was in her horoscope, it did not include her Moon (the heart and feelings). Was this the cause of her relationship problems or was it Saturn in the 7th house of relationships cooling every encounter into something to disdain?
The Ideal Leader for His Time
Churchill led Britain through WWII with courage and optimism, and his horoscope is replete with courage, daring and leadership. Few people are as well known as Churchill so this provides a great opportunity to see how well astrology defines the man.
Good and Evil
The struggle against negative forces shows as a key factor in his horoscope. In fact, Hitler shared a similar aspect. What made them differ? What made one lead to the light and the other the dark? It’s in their horoscopes!
A Life of Danger
Throughout his life he courted danger, in fact astrologically he liked it and felt enormous confidence in handling it. His personal body guard of 18 years was frequently in a state of alarm over Churchill’s disregard for any form of combat or war time dangers. Where did he get such confidence? It wasn’t only through his Sagittarian sun sign or the support Sagittarius had from Leo and Aries – a total confidence package; there was another factor.
Spirit and Spirituality
This same factor caused him to be moved to tears over the beauty of a moment and it also painted him with a prediliction to love alcohol. In fact he believed in himself and his destiny so strongly it qualified as a spiritual belief.
