John Lennon: still missed

On radio now is Fresh Air with its feature on John Lennon who would have been 70 years old tomorrow, October 9, 2010, if only he were with us.

Click for the Fresh Air text concerning the release of the FBI’s files on Lennon and you’ll find other interviews as well such as with John’s first wife, Cynthia, and with Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr. (Audio will be available around 5:00 pm edt.)

The 1972 presidential election was the first in which 18-year-olds could vote in the US and Lennon wanted to use that fact to help register young voters who were against the Vietnam War and Richard Nixon who then attempted to deport John Lennon in 1972.

Here’s a tribute I wrote in 2006 on the topic of my favorite Beatle titled John Lennon: still missed which details his natal chart placements and contains some info on the Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn, the societal planets, which has been associated with assassinations of US presidents..the ‘Presidential Death Cycle’, as it’s called.

(As you know, Ronald Reagan missed dying from an assassin’s bullet due to an astrologer’s warning, it is said.)

John Lennon was born during such a Great Conjunction and his assassination occurred under the auspices of the 1980/81 conjunctions:

1. December 31, 1980 @ 9Lib30 (conjunct Fixed Star Vindemiatrix: ‘the widow’ or ‘the widower’; ‘loss of partner’);

2. March 3, 1981 @ 8Lib06;

3. July 24, 1981 @ 4Lib56.

Wiith Jupiter/Saturn’s 20-year cycle of that time beginning and manifesting in a mental Air sign, we may say that it was primarily the anarchistic thoughts of John Lennon, including his and Yoko’s support of the peace movement, which sealed his fate at the hands of the US government.

That, and his tremendous popularity.

Princes, Paupers, Pilgrims & Pioneers: Our Predecessors & Me

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel are essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
