Astrology of the Famous and Well Known / Re: John F. Kennedy

Thank you, Halina.  It seems I rushed over to my other computer to see the solar arcs and transits in relation to the natal, and mistakenly put in the wrong location for Kennedy's birth.  Ach ach.  Too much in a hurry, so my last bit is of course incorrect.  I will be erasing what I wrote to Amy so that someone isn't looking for what I wrote.

Thank you for showing the triwheel, it is very striking to see. 

So...I guess I can only say that transiting Pluto will be square to the ASC-DSC probably at a time when information is accessible and someone has drawn from it something significant to his story (?).

Very cool about the age point, Halina.

Thank you bjorkstrand.  I could easily become engrossed in this stuff....but I cannot afford the time right now.  Hope someone else will view it.

Thank you Tim, again...

I've read nearly all of Rao's books, and Karma and Rebirth in Hindu Astrology is the one I return to most often.  Some of his most brilliant original researches are presented in that book.  It's one of a kind, from either Eastern or Western perspectives on astrology.

I will start another thread here one of these days on Shanti Devi, and present just a couple of astrological correspondences to her previous life as Lugdi.  Rao may be the only astrologer alive who met with Shanti Devi several times and gave her predictions, and thus had vital information regarding her story that other non-astrological historians just never had.  And this was so famous a case that even Mahatma Gandhi took an interest in it.

Love your inner circle, and thanks so much for the quote by on!

Again, thank you very much for all your wonderful contributions here...

Hi Barb, thought I'd pull up the triwheel you speak of so I can visualized your aspects mentioned.   Had Kennedy still lived he would have completed 100 years, 5 months.   Since I am currently reading about the Huber wheel, I wonder where on the Huber Wheel is Age Point would fall and whether that would be significant in anyway.   The Huber wheel uses Koch House system.   One cycle of the wheel covers 72 years of life and each House is covered in 6 years.
So he would be on the 2nd trip around the wheel and his AGE POINT would fall (100 minus 72 equals or 28 years from the Asc).   Now each House is covered in 6 years in the HUBER system, so 28 divided by 6 = 4 Houses completed with 4/6 of the 5th House covered or 2/3 of the 5th House is where his AGE POINT would be.

Hi Amy.  Yes, its pretty weird how we can do that.  I think a square is as "good" as a conjunction myself, and not necessarily so negative, but only the description of the tension which was there 20 or more years ago and is somehow still there.  It is the strength of contact that is the important thing I think.  When my father died 21 years ago, he was given a veteran cemetery grave stone number 2350, which I thought was really cool because it is my birth day in the month followed by my birth I can never forget where he is in the cemetery.  When my mother moved into assisted living 3 years ago, the room number of her apartment became 523, and as it turns out, I am mostly the only family that goes to visit her there.  Even though there was tons of arguments and sore feelings between my parents for almost 50 years, I know that my father looks after my mother from beyond and asks me to do the same.

HVA, besides T Mars approaching my ASC, Jupiter is en route (long-distance travel, spiritual matters).  Excited to see what the 2 transits bring :).    --thanx, Stacy

Hi Stacy,

So sorry to hear of your painful loss.

The transit I mentioned hitting your chart when I messaged you also involved a midpoint.

Transiting Mars square Moon means that this transit is also part of the midpoint picture Moon=Saturn/Neptune.

Mars does rule the sixth house of pets and the midpoint picture I think amplifies the emotional content suggested by the square between Mars and the Moon. Bringing in Saturn and Neptune not only adds suffering but also exhaustion. AND this midpoint picture comes around every two years. Perplexing circumstances that befuddle and bemuse the rationale mind.

I know that doesn't explain anything. It can't be explained. But I hope you hang in there and feel a renewed sense of vigor when Mars finally hits the ascendant. I hope you feel as though you have more fight in you and that your voice here and elsewhere is a necessary and welcomed voice that makes a contribution.



Tim--Apologies! I just saw your post this very minute; not sure how I missed it. However, you brought forth extremely helpful and valid info and I am so grateful!  This MP transit explains much.

The exhaustion, barely able to drag myself out of bed or off the sofa when I finally do. A HUGE treat for me a few hours ago though:  as I was groggily waking up and could faintly hear the TV there was an image for the briefest nano-second in my mind's eye of Scotty!!   It was exactly as he looked right after the euthanasia as he lay crumpled in a ball on his blanket in the vet's office. I have no doubt it was from him. (you recall the old Batman TV series when an image was projected up into the sky to signal BM?  That's what it was like. That's how it was with my 1st bunny in 1999, too). 

Am still exhausted but that gave me a boost the size of Jupiter of vital life-force. Much needed...And I so appreciate you kind and supportive words, Tim. Very nice. And right-on-the money in more ways than you know.

Funny that today was the 22nd, 11th day after he died (11 & 22 my 2 numbers from numerology). I have theories. Did it take him this long to "find" me? Was he took weak until now?  Was I too emotional before now? (I just met my new upstairs neighbors who are actually kind and awesome, so that I felt a bit of true joy for the 1st time in 11 days.) Real laughter, however brief. And then I napped, and then he visited :).

I find this very interesting    For example:  My dad died 20 years before my mother.  When she died, transiting saturn and pluto were squaring his natal pluto/saturn conjunction   These are negative transits--however, I do think my Dad probably had capricorn ruing his 7th house.  AMY

Really good work presenting the Female Serial Killers... the 18th harmonic especially is an intriguing idea, as intriguing perhaps as Karma and past lives/rebirth. I had read that the 9th harmonic is about harmonious expression and often attributable to matrimony, or matrimonial relations and love. Being a multiple of 9, the 18th harmonic raises the level a degree to relations with the larger group or community and the NEED to feel connected and appreciated by others. That need going unmet in both of the cases you present, if there is any efficacy to the idea,  may have been the poison that fertilized the seed of their Prarabdha Karma which they carried with them into this life. I like how you framed the entire analysis with Noel's approach and then sashayed over to the other-side of the plate to show the strength of Jyotish. Like you said the retrospective view is always easier to fit to the narrative we have in mind.

I do understand the cultural framework, interpretative grid and meaning systems involved with Karma... My query was to not take the "schema" at face value but try and pose alternative possibilities which is really just my peregrination speaking... especially the individuating Uranus which fights the cultural point of view; any culture's pov.

For rebirth I think Rao's circumspection is wise where he writes beneath the title of his Karma and Rebirth in Astrology: "In the rebirth cases the astrological links between the horoscopes of both births is a tentative, not conclusive, attempt to explain the phenomenon of rebirth." And I would add similarly that we could make a good case that the attempts to explain Karma too is a tentative and not a conclusive treatment. Rao lays out his schema in the introduction where the top three components are Rahu, Ascendant and the sign of the Moon as "landmarks of the parabdha" and then my free view stops... ugh!

I do think however that you presented a persuasive and convincing treatment of the schema. For me, I was motivated not to buy Rao's book but instead to return to the members of my "inner circle" and see what they had to say... Yeats, Blake, Teilhard de Chardin, and Sri Aurobindo sit at my table. So thank you for the encouragement to re-engage with them. The first three I think ascribe Karma to the traditional view that would surely resonate with Rao. Aurobindo is altogether off on his own, not denying reincarnation, Karma or rebirth, but to the contrary suggesting that our view is merely a partial one that doesn't SEE the whole picture. Rao oddly, at least in the case of identifying rebirth within the chart, alludes to this "partial seeing" by suggesting similarly that we be circumspect... 

"If the Sun and Moon should doubt,
They'd immediately go out.
To be in a passion you good may do,
But no good if a passion is in you.
