We so want to find our soulmates, our other half, the one that makes us feel so alive it becomes a delicious, painful pursuit. The Femme Fatal, Black Widow, Praying Mantis, the dark destructive moth to flame obsession that we nervously try to pass off as love. The irresistable pull, the run away train that we have boarded…. is any of this love? Maybe in a Black Lillith Moon kind of way, but really it is an attraction that blows into an obsession. This energy often tears families apart, shatters dreams and hurts those innocent people close enough to rip and shred when the time bomb goes off. Often you will see those transits applying to natal and or progressed charts, but how it plays out is up to the individual… I hope. I have recently watched marriages destroyed, families uprooted, and many hearts broken over LOVE. Something wrong here, love is warm, accepting, encouraging, nurturing, inclusive, encompassing, joyful…. I haven’t been seeing that. What is common in these individual’s charts? I turned to my own little obsessions to find a common pattern.
We all have some celebrity or other we at one point or another wanted to plaster our walls with their posters, maybe fantasized about meeting. Yet, we all focus on someone different mostly. Some celebs we feel a special bond toward. I looked at the ones that stopped me in my tracks since my teens and found some interesting stuff. If anyone wants the birth info or the charts used sent to them just write me. Now, don’t laugh…. these are my dream team guys:
Francois Truffaunt(French director/actor), Steve Martin (comedian and actor), Ben Murphy (actor known best for role of Kid Curry in Alias Smith and Jones), Gene Kelly (no kidding), Harvey Korman (actor/comedian), David Duchovney (actor) and John Elway ( the Quarterback) Funny, as much as I love Music, never had a musician crush. You can see this list is a bit different from the posters of Sean Cassidy or any teen magazine steam rolled out teen boy celebrety…. this list really got me.
What do we see in common? Very heavy play of conjunctions with the North Node of either the Celebrity or myself. There are often conjunctions to the Vertex or Anti Vertex of the other with personal planets. Pluto and or the 8th house is active in all of the Synastrys and Composites. Francois Truffant must have been in his 60’s when he starred in Close Encounters of the Third Kind…. and I about 11 years old. I went to see the movie over and over and I was convinced this was love. In Synastry, almost every planet in one chart is conjunct another planet in the other one’s chart. I doubt to this day I have met anyone or known of anyone with such tight and exact aspects. Some of the charts have unknown times, so the core sample is smaller with looking at the angles of the charts, and in the one’s known, often the Asc/Desc or the MC/IC were conjunct the others planets or angles.
So how realistic is it to look at the composite charts or Davidson charts with someone who we are not involved with? I think it is never too early. Why date for an amount of time to find out the possibilities are nil due to erratic behaviours when we can see that in moments with a Composite Uranus running amuck in a chart? I decided to look closer at one of my “crush’s” nativity. I chose John Elway, because we did have a “relationship” of a type and I wondered if that would even show, as brief and distant as the exchanges were. I am assuming the chart information I have on him is correct and will go from there.
John Elway’s chart has a beautiful kite formation. I know those with the kites give off a delightful charismatic vibe to the world. The Apex of the Kite is the Sun and Venus conjunction that is at the same degree of my natal Moon and opposed my natal Sun. His natal Leo Moon is conjunct my natal Vertex overlaying my 7th house. His POF is conjunct my BML and Juno conjunction in Scorpio. Okay, there are dynamics right there in the synastry charts, and not too different from my other celebrity obsessions. Then I pull out the composite. I am looking on how I am affected as opposed to how I would affect him… though that peeks through anyway.
The Composite Sun is Conjunct my natal Jupiter, the Jupiter being the apex of my natal Tsquare with the Luminaries. The Composite Pluto is conjunct the Composite MC and opposed Mars on the IC. And as you will see in a moment, that particular aspect is appropriate. Composite Juno is currently conjunct my Progressed Venus, may be why I am enjoying writing and thinking about him right now. The Composite Jupiter is conjunct my natal Saturn. (again we will see that importance soon) and finally what stands out the most to me, a Composite Moon in the 8th house with the lord of the 8th’s cusp being the Moon.
So, there is some 8th house/Pluto stuff going on. Interestingly, we don’t see personal planets involved showing a good-natured, feel good warmness from the Composite. It is there in the Synastry, but not in the chart that speaks of the relation. Okay, I know you are dying to know about the “relations” I had with John Elway. When I was 18 and moved to Denver, it was Elway’s rookie year with the Broncos. One balmy Summer night I was driving down Colorado Blvd., the 6 lane span was empty… well it was after 2am. I watched a car in my review mirror coming on to mine fast and not slowing down. Not wanting to get hit I swerved into the ditch/gutter, and as the vehicle drove by, I saw it was that rookie guy the media was covering everyday. I suspect that since he was a fairly new celebrity that the vanity plates with his name had a short-lived existence, but they were there that night. Okay, that is kind of Pluto (ish) and hmm can give it the 8th house too I suppose, as for years I would joke around Elway tried to kill me. Some years later, the 8th house took on a greater importance. I worked for John Elway Mazda in Westminster, Colorado for a while. I sold cars that he had initially purchased so there is our 8th house legacy, joint possessions. The Composite Jupiter conjunct my Saturn makes sense, as I got income from working for him. Did Elway and I ever meet? I did see him occasionally on the road again and such, but no, we never did. And probably a good thing too, as with his natal Venus on my Moon and his Moon my Vertex conjunction, I would probably would have latched on to his leg and as he drug me around trying to shake me off, people would only see the Plutonian Obsession. Well, synastry has my Venus on the Cusp of his 5th house, maybe he wouldn’t shake me off immediatly. 🙂
