MARS SQUARE NEPTUNE: THE ZIGGY STARDUST ASPECT IN DAVID BOWIE’S NATAL CHART

MARS SQUARE NEPTUNE: THE ZIGGY STARDUST ASPECT IN DAVID BOWIE'S NATAL CHART

Mars square Neptune is the Ziggy Stardust aspect. Neptune is associated with illusions and addictions, everything that has a deceptive and ephemeral quality. It is the transcendental glow of glam-rock while it lasts. Mars is masculinity and sexuality, action and urge. Mars is exalted but it is also placed within the “secret” 12th house, something that could hint to Bowie’s bi-sexual orientation.

This becomes all the more interesting since Ziggy, the glam androgynous alter-ego that Bowie had adopted in his early career, obviously a statement of his own bi-sexuality, had supposedly came from planet Mars. Ziggy was attired in glam clothes and with his Stardust surname alluded to drug taking and illusions (Neptune).

“Ziggy Stardust represents the definitive rock star: sexually promiscuous and wild in drug intake, but with a message of peace and love. He thinks he is a messiah in the end he is destroyed both by his own consumptions, and by the fans he inspires”.

This is a description of messianic self-deception wrapped in ephemeral glitter, clearly a Neptune motif. Ziggy’s end in fan adored martyrdom and in a state of drug induced illusory haze is reflective of both the taboo 8th house and the self-destruct and self-sacrificial 12th house themes, that the square of the two planets brings together.

The Mars – Neptune square in Bowie’s natal chart, channels the energies of all of his creative (Neptune) urges (Mars). It expresses Bowie’s glam art, his ambiguous sexuality and is utterly embodied in his famous alter-ego.

ROBERT DOWNEY JR. (See-Saw Pattern)

Robert Downey

The see-saw astrology pattern in the natal chart can be very tricky, hinting to a personality that has contradictions, that sways from one extreme to another and of a person capable of making extraordinary achievements or completely wasting and misusing the pattern energies.

A solution for this would be the person to find balance and integrate the two parts of the chart, as a means to channel the opposing energies constructively and live the chart’s potential with more completeness.

Find out how Robert Downey Junior, an excellent actor and a very clever guy, worked the contradictions in his natal chart, and matured through his Jovian excesses. His rise to stardom, substance abuse, and his marvellous comeback, became a living example of what it means to have a see-saw chart and how we can integrate our conflicting sides and constructively embrace our contradictions.

KEPLER COLLEGE: INTERVIEW WITH ASTROLOGER ANDREW IFANDIS

kepler-interview

Andrew Ifandis is an astrologer who has chosen Kepler College to expand his astrological knowledge and professional development.

Andrew Ifandis has written an acclaimed analysis (including key transits, progressions and solar arcs) of the astrological chart of Ingmar Bergman, the renowned Swedish director which has been published in the July-August 2016 issue of the Astrological Journal and at the same time re-published with author permission on astro.com and kepler.edu. (You can read a copy by clicking here.)

Kepler: Andrew can you please tell us your approach to the analysis of Bergman’s chart? 

Andrew:

My intention was to present a comprehensive analysis of Ingmar Bergman’s natal chart.

From an astrological point of view his chart is extremely interesting and showcases complex psychological themes and personality traits, which I supported in my analysis with various bio or scholar references.

In my delineation, I guide the reader to a gradual unfolding of his chart, providing the astrological indications for his intuition, sensitivity, memory, attachment to childhood and other key personality characteristics.

His theatrical and cinematic prolificness, passion for life, five marriages, numerous secret lovers, the fact that he had 9 children, and his success are analysed in terms of natal aspects and planet placement and dignities. Bio facts are interwoven to the narrative to keep up reader’s interest. Multi-faceted behaviour of the same planet or aspect is given where appropriate and delineation proceeds to more psychological analysis such as fears or existentialist motifs.

“Persona”, his seminal work that 50 years after its release, is still considered to be probably the most important work of modern art, is explained as an archetypal expression of his psyche and shown in my analysis. I end up by stressing that his chart is characteristic of how a person can work on the dynamic aspects of his chart and exploit their dynamic in combination with the easy ones.

The article concludes with a section of key transits, progressions and solar arcs for three key periods of Ingmar’s Bergman life (first script, first marriage and filming of Persona).”

Kepler: What is that you deem to be the most valuable asset of Kepler College for anyone who wants to expand his astrological skills?

Andrew:

Kepler is an excellent place where astrology thinking can thrive. The subjects are organized in thematic courses that allow for a gradual build up of knowledge and skills building whether you are a beginner or an advanced professional.

Kepler’s courses cover the whole spectrum of astrological methods, techniques and applications that Astrology may have.

What I consider to be most important is that Kepler instructors present all different views on a subject, even if there exist controversies or alternative viewpoints on a matter and by doing so encourage critical thinking and informed choices.

When I decided to formalize my many years experience on Astrology and to obtain a renowned qualification I decided on Kepler because I was really impressed exactly by this approach to the subjects.

Kepler: How do you think that an ongoing education at Kepler will benefit your astrological work?

Andrew:

As any astrologer would tell you, the field of Astrology is vast and there are many paths to chose. I am a modern astrologer and I would want to delve deeper into many subjects, traditional and horary astrology included. Kepler’s methodical, broad and in depth programs and webinars can substantially assist an astrologer’s journey and offer opportunities to take the next step in his Astrological career.

Kepler: Do you feel that your involvement with Kepler has contributed to getting your article published?

Andrew:

Being in Kepler, is to be in the Mecca of Astrology. Being exposed to the thinking and approaches of such esteemed astrologers, seeing and discussing their different astrological perspectives and having the chance to have your work being discussed with such experienced instructors is a great advantage.

The positive feedback on my writing style that everyone in Kepler has given and the inspiration I took from Kepler has contributed a lot to getting my article published.

ARNOLD - HIS CAPRICORN MOON WORKS OUT

ARNOLD – HIS CAPRICORN MOON WORKS OUT

Arnold Schwarzenegger Capricorn Moon

Arnold’s charming personality, his winning attitude, his workaholicism, are all traits that can be found in his natal chart and explained in Astrological terms through a natal analysis. 

Look at the man’s moon!   Arnold Schwarzcenegger Moon Works Out

Pumping and sweating in the 6th house of fitness and daily toil, placed in Capricorn, is speaking volumes of his inner need to be somebody important, his persistence and aspiration to gradual climb to the top.

This moon is the ruler of his charming Cancer ascendant, expressing outward his need for achievement and status. A moon that’s in Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, so it means business.

“When you’re out there partying, horsing around, someone out there at the same time is working hard. Someone is getting smarter and someone is winning.” – Arnold Schwarzenegger

No fun and relax. Work and win. No pain, No Gain if you want to be Numero Uno Capricorn style!

This hard-working Moon in Capricorn is also a Gibbous Moon. Let’s get out of the gym for a moment, look at the sky and explain a little Lunar Astrology. In Astrology a moon’s phase in the time of birth is extremely important because it shows us the way we interact with the world.

Our motivation, modes of thought, our energy, all is in tune with the moon’s light. If it is waxing we are outward and expanding, having aims, goals, we grow as the light reflected form the moon surface grows. If we are born in waning phase the process is more inward, maturation occurs, conclusions endings and re-assessments, clearing for the new takes place.

Let’s get back to the gym now. There’s Arnold’s moon in the corner lifting, a waxing one and in Gibbous phase. This phase denotes Growth, Development and Establishment the building of new structures and systems of thought. So fitting to this man’s life that has built a structured body and a whole new school in bodybuilding and more importantly established and re-established himself and his career three times.

Waxing Gibbous: a phase that denotes self-development and production, perfection and overcoming of obstacles. Exactly what Arnold’s philosophy and life show.

So this moon in Capricorn works out and works out well helping him towards success. But more help comes from the man’s Nodes. Arnold’s uplift through the social ladder is also there in the chart.  The South Node is in the 5th house and in Sagittarius, the North Node in the 11th house in Gemini. Both at 0 degrees. Discover more in “Arnold nods and follows his nodes”.
