.A highly unique
horoscope. The planets seem to be in five distinct groups. The
chart shape focuses the “energy” on Mars
(action) in the career house (10th
house) and the sign of Sagittarius
(philosophy, higher education, publishing, story-telling). Mars
is also singleton. It is his only planet in a Mutable
sign, drawing his energy to communications. Well, he did write a
lot of books. Six planets in Fixed
signs. Stubborn. And a tendency to be concerned with the
long-range, the “ultimate”. Another planet to get emphasis is Jupiter, which is the focus
of a “yod” formation (two planets 60 degrees apart, and a
third one opposite their mid-point). The yod points to the 8th
house (sex, death, “rebirth” and rehabilitation).
Good to have for a therapist. Neptune
square aspect his Sun was probably responsible for his
mysticism. There is no “fate” about astrology. We all make choices.
This could also have been the horoscope of a producer of
pornographic (8th house emphasis) films (Neptune square Sun).
What the chart does tell us is that he could not have been an accountant or a
bricklayer, or lead a very routine life. If he did, that Neptune
would have tended to make him a substance abuser.
