What do Hannibal and law and Order have in common? Scorpio of course

Many of you may know the show or at least heard about it, and for good reason. The show focuses on a highly intelligent psychopath doctor Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen), who happens to also cook gourmet meals from his victims. Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) is an empath with some issues…They both are there to solve the crimes. In itself not too different than most in the criminal genre including TV shows like: Law and order or Criminal Minds. To make story short this show is not for the weak of stomach. As someone with high level of empathy myself, I found the images of body parts and death hard to watch. I love shows that feature an in depth look at characters psychology and I don’t mind murder and crime in the mix. But this show crosses the line for me.

Anyway, the cool thing is the astrology of this show’s two main characters. When I see shows like that all I can think of is: Scorpio, Scorpio…and amazingly it is the very much the case. If detective shows had a horoscope it would be in the signs of Virgo, Scorpio and Aries.

Dick wolf the creator of: Law and Order, Chicago P.D, SVU is a Scorpio Moon, Venus and Jupiter.

Hannibal has two main characters for three seasons, that make the show (not including all the dead and abused people) and for the sake of TV they are an Astrological couple.Hugh Dancy who plays the troubled empath that can get into the head of any psychopath is a Gemini with Scorpio Moon and Hannibal played by Mads Mikkelsen is a double Scorpio: Sun, and Moon with a strong Capricorn that allows him to play the cold, sophisticated doctor. They are promised to understand each other and get along very well. Hugh also has his Mars in Aries which after Scorpio is a most common sign associated with heroic action and violence.

Interesting isn’t it? I would like to one day write a detailed analysis on the subject.

Do you watch this show? If you do I would love to know your sign

Dont Worry Virgo: Jupiter Likes You

Jupiter is the planet of expansion, specifically the expansion of the higher mind. Mercury rules the communications of ideas but its Jupiter that rules the learning that is required. How do we learn? We need to expand the limits of our minds so that new ideas can come in. The real purpose of Jupiter is to allow you to reach the highest spiritual potential in this life.

Jupiter in your natal chart is the equivalent of a lucky charm that pushes you towards something better. But this “lucky charm” has its own rules and limits mainly that it should be used to expand your soul and mind that is true even if Jupiter give you money. Jupiter can make you rich and famous but only so you can become better through it. Let’s say you suddenly become rich during a Jupiter transit- it still has a higher purpose you must find out.

Today I am going to talk about the restricted Jupiter, the Jupiter that falls into a Sign, House or Aspect that doesn’t allow expansion. For example, Jupiter in the 6th or in Virgo is restricted because this places work against the nature of Jupiter.  Virgo likes to look at details, making things smaller and as I said Jupiter likes things bigger.

So what does it mean to have your Jupiter in Virgo? It means you will find your spiritual development in the Virgo realm, in itself there nothing wrong with that. People with this placement do well and feel good serving others. The type of service would be seen by the house Jupiter is in. In either case, Jupiter likes to teach you things and here it allows you to be a student of the spiritual in a very material way. You may join groups that study together, you may read allot or work in service of others who need help.

The problem is going to be that your thinking is very details and deep but it doesn’t seem to give you the bigger picture. You see all the little pieces of the puzzle and you understand each of them very well but you don’t always know how to put them together.

What to do? Embrace the house placement and you will be able to make the puzzle whole. Jupiter in the 3rd house for example will make an amazing teacher, writer and speaker about philosophy, religion and media. You have Jupiter in the 5th house? You will do well to give light and humor to others in a creative way; this is the creative teacher or the laughing Dalai Lama.

The real truth here is that Jupiter in Virgo is capable of bringing so much kindness and happiness to others in the world. You bring your lucky charm to serve others- and you love it for in allows you to grow and learn. So pleas for the sake of humanity, embrace the limitations of life and you will see how giving can be your reward. You will find yourself feeling whole with Jupiter and with knowing your true purpose in life.

What is your Jupiter purpose?   

Fashion of the Rising Signs: Style me Scorpio

As you know, your rising rules your appearance, mannerisms, hand gestures and how others see you. The Chart as a whole can say a lot about how you look: A Pluto in the first house? Magnetic eyes, Jupiter? Makes you fat, Mercury? You look ten years younger than your age. Any aspects to the rising will have an effect as well. Venus and Neptune rule your fashion and sense of beauty, and yet it’s the rising sign that matters. Over the years I practiced enough to be able to guess peoples sign from how they look, move and dress. So today let’s talk fashion and appearance!

I am going to start with Scorpio, why? It’s just an easy one to spot. Scorpio rising people are the ones that enter a room and your head turns. They don’t have perfect faces like Libra rising has, nor are they as glamorous as the Leo’s or unique like the Sags. But they have this something that makes them magnetic, interesting and hard to ignore. The Scorpio rising gives a person otherwise light hearted in personality- an intense gaze, slightly hooded eyes and usually not straight nose. The face is not a smiling face but a more like this (not that they don’t smile but even when they do i’ts still a sharp look) Like Beyonce who is a Virgo/Scorpio rising wiht a Scorpio Moon:

Beyonce-IASF-beyonce-32700249-1280-960There is also something sharp about the mouth area not unlike the Cancer rising mouth and they tend to have strong bodies. The body pose is fierce but in a quite way and the movements are also under the radar. They seem composed but can suddenly erupt in a faster movement and surprise you. The most obvious characteristic is that they are SEXY- it’s all in the hypnotic eyes and the energy around them. The eyebrows are also strong and sharp and rarely thin.I find that the eye+ eyebrow area is the best one to recognize this rising and it looks something like this: Men usually have this nose eyebrows thing going on like Tom cruise who is a Cancer/Scorpio rising:

Tom Cruise Venessa Paradis is known to be sexy even though she has the most pretty not perfect teeth out there.Anyway she sych a Scorpio rising: notice the eyes,teeth and beauty that can not be explained (maybe she is just French)

vanessa_paradis_420-420x0

As far as fashion goes it can go a little rock n’ roll crazy like adam ant who is also a Solar Scorpio. You can expect the rebel look form this rising but not always.

adamAfter all the dark red lipstick was invented my the scorpio rising similiar to the Aries rising- the style is blod and sexy. Like this lady: Dita Von Teese who is also a Libra and a burlesque dancer, model, costume designer. She had the perfect rising for a Venusian type of person that uses her own beauty and artistic talent to make money (Venus loves money). Her style is moe a Libra style of vintage clothes but the way it shows her body and the history of it? all Scorpio.
DVonTeese_GL_16nov09_pa_b_592x888Anyway. the real Scorpio rising style is that of Mars- they dress up to go to war. War with who? well everone who would dare to hurt them. This rising knows how to dress up in order to win (Beyonce anyone?) and they are fearless about wearing nothing or anything. They also don’t care about what they wear that much they just know how to use it. Also they do look creep as hell at times and even more so if they have Pluto in the first house. Th strange thing is that like most scorpio people they can look very gentle but for the eyes that tell the real story.

Scorpio rising invented: Leather jackets, red lips, leather anything, black lace, metal chockers and rings and also this:

f1bb16cd8b42e94b83c3f4ae2de10b8a

In general they look like the vampire: They look aloof, hard to approach, pale not matter the skin color, sharp bone structure, amazing eyes and noses with character. They tend to look like a vampire because they enjoy that look and how it affects the people around them. Those who choose a more simple fashion still tend to have something otherworldly about them. It can repel and attract people- but either way they don’t care what you think.

Uranus Square Mercury: The Incomplete Outsider

This post is completely unplanned for today, which isn’t surprising considering it is about the change causing Uranus. I was really going more towards Pluto, Scorpio and the like for my next subject…But ok, what Uranus wants Uranus gets- or maybe not?

Recently I was doing a reading for a person online that had this aspect and was asking for help dealing with it. The problem in their own words was not that they feel others don’t get them and that the whole world in fact completely misunderstands them. In traditional Astrology this aspect in a person’s chart is bad news.

It promises they will have a “scattered mind” a mess in the head really. But maybe you don’t know this but I’m a positive Astrologer- I use chart reading the way a therapist would (if they were not a therapist but an Astrologer) and I like offering practical advice more than delivering bad news to people.Anyway, to find a solution to this person’s problem or to yours if you have any Uranus problems in your chart, I needed to understand what the problem was. Uranus is a symbol of genius, electricity, Frankenstein, rebellion, change and anything new and technological.

It is the planet of our age- the age of Aquarius and also of your computer breaking down. Uranus is ruled by Aquarius and in many ways is kind of like Saturn that co-ruler of this sign for it likes to make life hard for you when it transits.

Aquarius is also the sign of fame and it has a big ego, without this ego no one would dare and try anything. Try to be innovative or try to become Elvis Presley (who had this aspect). But let’s face it: You are not Elvis or Madonna and Uranus squaring your Mercury is only resulting in issues. The issue being that you can’t express your thoughts to the world without feeling like an outsider. People don’t get you- or so you think. Part of that is that you don’t get yourself until you express this energy, this chain of crazy thoughts and ideas. But Uranus likes change so what happens is that the second you do express yourself- it doesn’t matter. You already don’t think it’s true and you feel that you must do or say something to make others contradict you!

You do this and they act like they don’t understand you and this keep the dangerous cycle going. The only reason this keep on happening is because your sense of self is so tied up to being right- to the big ego. You can’t stand to be wrong and you take the blame and self-punish. The punishment is being the outcast, the outsider, the rebel, the crazy girl or guy.

I think this isn’t fair to anyone and I want to suggest it doesn’t have to be so. What you have is Uranus in your chart and that equals an energy that is best used on a big scale. You have so much to offer to the world if you only knew.  Your thoughts that you can’t express- they are not always right but they always have the right to exist. That is the truth and the second you realize that then you will not be afraid to express your mind to the world without causing a conflict with it. This is the truth and the one that can save you.

My best advice to you is to always say what you think but without attaching ego to it. Let your crazy out but without attaching your sense of self to it. To make it easy for you, I would suggest choosing an 11th house setting: A group with a cause. When you speak for the cause then you don’t care if you are right or wrong.You are not an outsider anymore and you are not alone in what you say. Find this platform and speak up- the world would thank you for that.

Taking Care of Your Moon

moon

Your Moon sign, that mysterious living force within you. The moon just like the mind is always shifting for it is never in its full power and yet never defeated. Your inner emotional stability or lack of it, your secret dreams and hopes and your nightly trips to the fridge for a piece of cake; all fall under the magic spell of the Moon.

We all know how our home life shaped who we are today, but we don’t always ask how this knowledge can help us. I want to tell you the most important thing about your Moon placement: Learn to take care of it, nurture and love it. For even if it shows that you had a great mother and family life and were much loved, it will also show where the nurture you received wasn’t the best one for you. As adults we must learn to take care of our own needs and this includes our own homes. But the real home is within: the home of the soul, that place where you feel most safe and comforted. A Moon that isn’t accepted and well taken care of will result in many problems. This can be weight gain due to emotional eating, depression, mood swings and anger. This may sound like the domain of the Sign of Cancer and indeed it is, as this is the ruling sign of our Moon. The Moon is your shadow and it hates being repressed. Self-expression is the key for a healthy emotional life. The sign and house placement will tell you what the best way for you to feel good is.

I will be happy to answer individual questions about you Moon as there is much more to be said. Here I will outline a few simple guide lines that can help.

Fire sign Moon: Needs to be extroverted or it might as well not exist. The fire Moon craves exchange with others in order to be at peace. A lack of this exchange can lead to illness and emotional pain- which is really an extroverted form of loss. Creative pursuits that involve people are a good place to start.

Air sign Moon: Needs balance between the emotional and the intellectual. Exchanging ideas through media and conversation is common. If the voice of the Moon isn’t heard then it may become a confused mess inside the persons mind; causing many mental problems. The Moon needs to be kept interested and involved but also restrained and contained.

Earth sign Moon: Needs a stable space in life that doesn’t involve rapid emotional demands. A stressful environment is very difficult for this Moon to handle. It also needs to be surrounded by familiar things and habits. Balancing the new and old is important.

Water sign Moon: Needs time alone to regain energy and process emotions. Creative work that is done alone is best. Working with too many people can be emotionally draining. The intuition needs expression in daily life and must not be ignored.

Matthew McConaughey: Horoscope

Matthew Macconaughey is an American actor, born on November 4th 1969. He is well known for roles in romantic comedies  such as: The Wedding Planner 2001, How to Lose a Guy In 10 Days 2003.and in Dramatic roles in The Lincoln Lawyer 2011, Interstellar 2014 and the acclaimed Dallas Buyers Club 2013.

Mcconaghy started enjoying great success later in his career, before that he studied in the University of Texas where he majored in communications and wanted to continue and study law. His breakthrough role was in Dazed and Confused 1992 and after a few roles in lighthearted comedies, he begin staring in much more dramatic roles.

Matthew is a Scorpio with a Virgo moon and Gemini Ascendant. The Gemini rising sign might explain why he kept being cast as a romantic playboy in comedies in his early career. Gemini is the ultimate playboy, for along with Libra it craves partnerships and needs to be stimulated or it gets bored and leaves. Matthew also has both Jupiter and Venus in the sign of Libra. Signifying a great ability to project into the world (through acting) the very essence of love and beauty. It also means that in his personal life, having a beautiful partner is very important.

Dallas-Buyers-Club-Matthew-McConaughey-gaunt
So Virgo- healing HIV So scorpio- Death, STDs and danger So Libra- Working with others to make a better world

The combination of the Sun in Scorpio with the Gemini rising and the Libra placements allow Maccounaghy to be a sharp communicator. This is someone who can argue with others on screen with a touch of humor (Gemini) and allot of intellect. No wonder he wanted to be a lawyer! In fact Mcconaughey even payed one in The Lincoln Lawyer 2011. Scorpio sun with a Virgo moon people are very intellectual beings who love to analyze things in depth. The main problem they might face in life is being estranged from the emotional life which they don’t value as much their rational. This makes sense because they are very good at understanding things in a much clearer way than anyone else.Acting is a way to connect to the missing emotions in a nuch needed way. The Libra Venus may be about beauty and partnership- but don’t forget it is also an air sign. Venus shows what we value and Maccounghy values “the beautiful mind”.

A Scorpio with an air rising is very attractive and charming to anyone they meet. They appear friendly and easy going and therefore make friends easily. They also are very good talkers because they combine the Scorpio intensity and sharp tongue with a humorous approach. This is especially true because Mcconaughey has his Mercury in Scorpio in the 6th house.

The 6th house is ruled by Virgo which is his Moon placement. Allowing him an endless access into his own deep Scorpio unconscious when acting (acting is ruled by Mercury and Neptune). Choosing complicated roles is very necessary for Matthew because he needs the mental work. Remember that the 6th house is ruled by Virgo who is a workaholic.

A mercury in Scorpio here means that he likes to work hard for his roles and research them in advance. All the above placements show me someone who likes to break things down and then rebuild them. Scorpio likes to break things in order to rebuild them and Virgo likes to do the same so it can understand all the little details. So here is a person who is a workaholic and who is always thinking how to transform himself. And if you think about it- this is exactly what he did! He chooses intense roles that require mental and physical preparation. And from a romantic comedies actor he transformed himself into roles like the one in Dallas Buyers Club 2013 ,where he plays a drug addict that finds out he has HIV.

A Scorpio-Virgo role in the TV show True Detective

I if didn’t know this person was a actor I would suggest they become a doctor, awyer or detective. Someone that can break things down in order to build them better- this can be the Law or the human body. But then you see that he has his MC in Aquarius and this changes things. People with this placement tend to need freedom in their career. If look at the Venus and Jupiter in Libra in this context. It is evident that this is someone that values individuality as part of their philosophy of life. Venus speaks of our values Jupiter of our beliefs and here the theme of partnership is evident. But in the context of the MC and Scorpio sun: The type of partnership is the kind that allows others the freedom to be themselves, both mentally and emotionally. Aquarius is the ultimate sign of fame and the public love people with this MC, so I think a great deal of long term success is promised for Matthew McConaughey.

I would also like to take a look at Saturn in Taurus in the 12th house. In general I find that Taurus is a good position for the planet of limitations and stability – it is also slow to change and very stable. But the 12th house is hard for any planet to be in. It’s like saying that stability is not to be found in life. It is much harder to access the qualities of Taurus and Saturn if it’s in this house. A person needs to struggle to find that place within them that is stable. Macounghy is already dominated by Air signs and the very emotional Scorpio- so this may be a problem. Thankfully he has the Virgo ability to work long and hard in order to reach his goals. And even better is having the beautiful Libra Venus and Jupiter in the 5th house. Promising lots of fun, romance and exciting adventures as well as luck with money and travel.
