Oral Roberts
« on: January 24, 2012, 05:13:14 AM »
On this day in 1918, televangelist Oral Roberts was born...

http://www.astro.com/astro-databank/Roberts,_Oral

Vocationally, his Capricorn MC leads to Saturn, which contacts Jupiter (9), Neptune (12), and Chiron.  Jupiter contacts the MC, Neptune, Venus (7), Mars, and the Sun (5).  Mars contacts Mercury (3), and Venus contacts the Nodes.  Mercury and Mars contact Pluto (7).  There are 2 quintiles and 3 biquintiles...

Thus, here can be seen the prominence of the Creative Expression and Communicating channels.  Also prominent are the Helping/Healing channel, the Performing channel, and the Administration channel...

On this day in 2012, Oral Roberts was again in the news as his Son (former head of Oral Roberts University) was arrested for speeding and driving under the influence with a quite high (0.11) blood alcohol count.

This seems appropriate in Oral's given chart as progressed Mercury (3rd ruler, News) forms a T-square out of Oral's natal Sun (5th ruler, children) opposition to Neptune.  Saturn (conjunct Neptune) sits at Oral's 5th House cusp and this happens as Saturn has moved to oppose Oral's Ascendant (and diurnal Asc, since it's Oral's birthday).

Seeing Saturn and Neptune conjoined at the 5th House cusp would lead us to "expect" some very sad circumstances relating to his children.  One has died in a plane crash and another has committed drug-assisted suicide.

Thanks, James KW...

Thanks James, I see that Oral Roberts son committed suicide on June 9, 1982...and Oral has a couple of direct motion Nodal argalas on his 5th House of children...and those Nodes are conjoined with both Moon (which is hemmed-in by malefics and rules his Jyotish natal 4th House, i.e., the 12th House from the 5th) and Mercury, the two Jyotish planetary significators for mind... :(

Oral was in Ketu-Rahu-Mars-Saturn-Sun in Vimsottari Dasa when his son committed suicide...

And Oral's planetary karaka or significator for his Jyotish rasi (natal) chart 5th House, Jupiter, is retrograde in the 2nd and rules his 12th House of Loss...

And in Western, when his Son committed suicide, we see Mars squaring his Moon-Pluto conjunction, Neptune having moved from his Neptune-Saturn conjunction (at 5th) as previously mentioned to form a hard aspect to Saturn, and Uranus (right on 8th Topocentric cusp) opposing Jupiter (ruler of 8th).

Really...nothing in life is RANDOM.

Thanks for sharing these profiles, James KW

My rectification is 11.03.44 CST Asc19Ari11'.
Mercury conjunct MC, in opposition to the Moon, helio Mercury conjunct Desc. Neptune conjunct cusp 5 orb 14'.
More impressive is the epoch: 10 April 1917 12.13.36 CST.
Venus and Sun conjunct MC, helio Venus conjunct MC orb of only 19', Uranus sextile MC.
Mercury conjunct Jupiter in 10th house.
Neptune conjunct Asc, helio Mercury rising in Leo 120 Moon.
