Bi-Quintile Event Round-up
The Healthcare Public Option, the Drug Makers Lobby, the death of Oral Roberts, the appearance of the 4th Horseman of the Apocalypse, the test launch of the new Boeing 787 (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/12/15/AR2009121501056.html ), and Santa’s arrest, highlight the events generated by the bi-quintile.
The Bi-quintile is part of a family or series of aspect that divide the 360 degree circular horoscope by fifths. For example, 72 degrees is one-fifth of the circle and 144 degrees is two-fifths of the circle. Robert Hand describes the bi-quintile in his book Horoscope Symbols as more powerful than all “three-series aspects except for the trine.” The Bi-quintile is noted as the aspect of talent and genius. Conversely, Bil Tierney in his book Dynamics of Aspect Analysis relies on Johann Kepler’s fifth harmonic definition calling the appearance of a bi-quintile a harbinger of “use and abuse of power and authority.”
This week we saw a lot of both. Yet, this particular bi-quintile theme seemed to center around the use and abuse of money. For example, during Climate Talks poor G-77 countries walked out because the reforms were too costly for them to consider. To save the talks, wealthier countries agreed to ante-up subsidies to assist their G-77 family (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/12/15/AR2009121505077.html).
But the big bi-quintile lifesaver went to the Guantanamo Bay Detainees. Washington announced plans on Tuesday to renovate an old Illinois ‘Big House’ (prison) to contain them (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/12/15/AR2009121501215.html )
The Bi-quintile aspect went exact on Monday, December 14 at 4:00 pm eastern standard time. World renown astrologers like Robert Hand and Bil Tierney note that no more than 1.5 degrees should be given as orb. So the bi-quintile’s effects will last until the morning of Thursday, December 17 eastern standard time. Featured in this week’s blog are three chart views. Up first is the Desire for Reform Eclipse and the Bi-quintile Transits and second is Johnny Depp.
Uses and Abuses
In this view the Desire for Reform Eclipse is the inner wheel and the Bi-quintile Transits is the outer wheel. My first visual observation were the two quincunxes (150 degrees) that sprang up as the bi-quintile transiting Sun made its 144 degree angle to the Desire for Reform Eclipse Sun. The quincunxes involve Saturn, Jupiter, Mars and the Vertex. Still holding is the square between cardinal houses in the Reform Eclipse. This involves Pluto, Capricorn ,10th house and transiting Saturn, Libra, 7th house. Below is a summary of the aspects and their meanings.
Transiting Neptune-Jupiter, Aquarius, 8th house quincunx Reform Eclipse Saturn-Vertex, Virgo, 7th house. The Vertex is anchoring this quincunx connection between Saturn and Neptune-Jupiter. The Saturn-Vertex combination often brings problems in the house that Saturn rules. In the Reform Eclipse chart, Saturn rules the 11th house. In the Bi-quintile Transit chart, Saturn rules the 8th and 9th houses. In the bi-wheel view shown, the transiting 8th and 9th houses fall in the Reform Eclipse’s 12th house of secret enemies. We met up with many illusions on the political front that confused us. Most notable was how President Obama led us to believe he was taking a hard line on Wall Street, then poof Citigroup and other bailed out banks walk away with a rosy tax break totaling in the tens of millions of dollars – at our expense no less! Was there some disconnect in the White House briefing room or was it another secret enemy disguised as an Obama supporter in the Oval Office who happened to help Obama write his very uranian Today Show comments. Where’s Rahm! This aspect also forms what Bil Tierney calls the upper quincunx or the “death quincunx.” Sadly, Oral Roberts the famous television evangelist died at age 91 (http://voices.washingtonpost.com/postmortem/2009/12/oral-roberts.html), and right before the bi-quintile vanished Cincinnati Bengals receiver Chris Henry died, one day after falling out of the back of a pickup truck in what authorities described as a domestic dispute with his fiancee. He was 26. (http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/121609-Bengals-Henry?GT1=39002)
Transiting Bi-quintile Sun Sagittarius, 7th house square Reform Eclipse Saturn-Vertex, 5th house. The Vertex is anchoring this quincunx connection between Saturn and Neptune-Jupiter. What could go wrong with the Sun in Sagittarius? It’s Christmas, the kids are coming out of school, the downtown streets are decorated, and Christmas Carols are playing on the radio. Well, Murphy’s Law emerged the winner morphing warm holiday tidings into a cold chill with Saturn-Vertex. This combination often brings problems in the house Saturn rules. In the Reform Eclipse Chart Saturn rules the 11th house. In the Transit chart Saturn rules the 8th and 9th houses. In the bi wheel view shown, the 8th and 9th houses of the transit chart move to the 12th house of secret enemies. Joe Lieberman rose as a secret yet powerful enemy of President Obama’s Healthcare Reform Bill. Lieberman successfully frustrated Obama’s efforts by winning his bid to remove the Public Option which would have rolled back the Medicare age to 55. Also under the influence of Saturn-Vertex were the G-77 nations who responded with a protest when they saw they were being taken for a ride. Our G-77 folk stalled Climate Talks with a ‘walk-out’ until their funding issues were given an appropriate platform for discussion (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/12/16/AR2009121600701.html ).
Transiting Vertex, Scorpio, 8th House quincunx Reform Eclipse Mars, Gemini, 3rd house. My followers already know that President Obama has received the most death threats of any president of our time – bar none. This was one of the reasons why I created this blog (https://nudeprovacateuse.wordpress.com/2009/11/30/the-rise-of-obama-history-in-the-making/ ) Yesterday, details of a plan were leaked outlining the military’s contingency actions in case violence sprang up in the US due to hostile War protests. Well, what’s the big secret? Remember, the 8th house is also referred to as the house of secrets. The big secret we won’t hear from our President is the new scope of the War initiatives. I wrote about this in an earlier blog called Opium Heroin War (https://nudeprovacateuse.wordpress.com/2009/12/07/opium-heroin-war/)
Transiting Bi-quintile Sun within cusp of quincunx to Reform Eclipse Sun-Moon. Evidence of willful and intense desires surfaced this week as the Drug maker Lobbyist groups emerged as the gorilla in the room concerning healthcare reform. Their campaign contributions total in the hundreds of millions of dollars. Many U.S. Senators obviously took note of this (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/12/16/AR2009121603027.html ). Also of note was the protester dressed as the 4th Horseman in the Apocalypse outside the Copenhagen Climate Talks. This was obviously spurred by an intense desire for their message to be visualized – we got it!
Bi-quintile’s Creative Talent and Genius-Johnny Depp
People Magazine’s Sexiest Man of the Year shares his Cancerian North Node with Hugh Hefner. Realizing that it was not easy to get away with even the smallest of crimes, due in large part to Uranus and Mars in the first house, Depp lives largely isolated from the American public in the Bahamas and Europe. He needs this in order to balance his home, family, career and possibly some very special health condition he’s been managing since childhood. Home is very important to Depp who emerged from insecure yet middle class conditions. This means he had to work three times as hard as the next guy to mold the life he wanted to lead. Note Depp’s Chiron in Pisces, 8th house. Now remember, Depp was born in Kentucky but if you were to encounter him today his accent would probably resemble a blue blooded British bloke with ties to the crown. It appears, Depp worked hard to distance himself from a past that may have been a little too chaotic (or redneck?). Over the years, true maturity and success for Depp was achieved only after he constructively touched base with his feminine side indicated by Venus and Mercury, Taurus, 10th house. One interesting aspect I noted is Saturn in Aquarius, 7th house square Mercury in Taurus, 10th house. Mercury is in the decanate of Saturn! I can almost hear him tell his accountant, and Disney executes: “I don’t see how this adds up, can you run those numbers again-with all my exceptions and exclusions-please?”
But I think the Arabic Parts in Johnny Depp’s birth chart provide valuable links to his story:
Part of Kings and Sultans is in Sagittarius, 5th house conjunct Vertex and sextile Saturn in Aquarius 7th House. The Vertex brought Depp an event that released the child within. From this point on he was able to maintain audiences with the rich and powerful of the world. Sadly, this notoriety may have restricted meaningful relationships for him early on. In order to overcome the latter, Depp had to go deep and make some hard choices.
Part of Sudden Elevation in Leo, 1st house. This point acts like Jupiter attracting the greater benefit to the personal life. It forms a disassociated conjunction with Depp’s Uranus in Virgo. This occurs when there is a relationship between two planets or points in different signs and/or houses. At 27 degrees Leo, Depp’s Part of Sudden Elevation trines his Vertex in Sagittarius, 5th house. Because the Part of Elevation acts like Jupiter, Depp has a concealed Winner’s Aspect which helps him win most contests he enters.
Part of Feminine Seduction in Scorpio is no surprise conjunct Neptune, 4th house. What is surprising is that this part trines Depp’s Chiron, in the decanate of the Moon, Pisces, 8th house. This is a sign of a very sensitive man who can keep babes swooning (Watch out Tiger!).
Part of Collectors in Leo, decanate of Jupiter, 12th house conjunct Ascendant. Depp has a way of coming across treasure that no one else is really looking for or recognizes as valuable. This maybe why he commands some of the most odd yet creative roles generated by Hollywood to date. Or, on ordinary days, he’s always coming across treasure like lost change, tickets, broken gold momentos, or lost lottery tickets. The next time you misplace a valuable, call Depp. Chances are, he found it!
Part of Large Bodies in Aquarius, 7th House. Yes Ladies! Johnny Depp has to watch his weight especially when he’s slap happy satisfied in a loving caring relationship.
Fate’s Magic Wand
About 2-weeks ago, Actor Johnny Depp sped over from his private island to pick up an award for his life’s work at the Bahama International Film Festival http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/entertainment/8411633.stm
And, just before the Bi-quintile Transit began waning, the world got a glimpse of the trailer for Alice in Wonderland due in theaters by March 2010. Now can you guess what face showed in nearly every shot. You guessed it – Johnny Depp! The Bi-quintile is noted as the aspect for talent and genius. That’s why for the last 3 or 4 days, the Desire for Reforms Eclipse – with help from the bi-quintile transit – has been bringing this to the fore.
From Matinée Swashbuckler to Classical Movie Superstar.
But most importantly, bi-quintiles don’t inspire creative genius in everyone unless they’ve reached a level of maturity that allows the genius to flow into the life. This is why I believe bi-quintiles are more powerful in transit aspects to an individual then in a birth chart. It’s like the cosmos waiting to determine whether you’re really ready for it! From the looks of things, Johnny Depp is closing a very important chapter in his movie career (swashbuckler, pirate) and opening a new one with unexpected turns, twists, and audiences (Sweeney Todd, Alice in Wonderland). Below is a tri-wheel view depicting Johnny Depp’s birth chart on the inner wheel, the Bi-quintile Transits in the middle wheel and the Desire for Reforms Eclipse on the outer wheel. My first visual observation was that the Desire for Reforms Eclipse Sun-Moon are in Depp’s 12th house of endings and secret enemies. This year Depp has or will find out something important, shut it down and begin anew. He’ll marshal a great deal of help and support as indicated by the gifts of luck and fortune the Bi-quintile Transit bestowed on his creative genius. I’m sure he’s exhaling: “..it’s about time!”
I’m not done yet! I can’t be until after the quincunx. So, up next is the Transiting Quincunx Sun, and what it brings to the Desire for Reform Eclipse of July 21, 2009 during our days of witness to The Rise of Obama.
About the Series: Since the time of the Pharoahs, eclipses have marked our major historical events especially the rise and fall of empires. The Rise of Obama Series (TRO) by The Nude Provocateuse (aka The_Betty) is based on the premise that the Eclipse of August 1, 2008 was the astronomical event opening the road for Barack Obama’s assent to the presidency, and the Desire for Reforms Eclipse of July 21, 2009 is responsible for influencing his 2009-10 political agenda.
