ABC’s “sexy” Edgar Allan Poe
Perhaps you’ve heard there’s an Edgar Allan Poe feature on ABC TV’s coming schedule with the lamentable Mr. Poe cast in a sexier, cuter mold as you see here with a photo of actor Chris Egan to play the role.
Now I’ve been a fan of Poe’s work sience my teens and the ‘Poe Toaster’ who visits his gravesite each year undercover of night is a fascinating bit of drama on its own.
In fact, a couple of years ago, I went on a Poe Spree on my Political Astrology blog, Stars Over Washington, and posted the macabre author’s natal chart details along with an image of his death horoscope. (I do love Historical Horoscopes!)
So if you’re interested in the astro-drama of a very talented man who lived in unfortunate times and conditions, click
here where you’ll see in his death chart a YOD pattern of crisis pointing to Chiron in Scorpio and with a 29th degree Mars sextiling Uranus and Pluto at its base.
(Planets at 29 degrees of any sign often indicate crisis conditions as well.)
Now reports have said Poe died around 3:00 am (the horoscope is set for the other touted time of death: 5:00 am.) And since the silent Poe Toaster arrives at the cemetery each year around 3 am, perhaps ‘he’ or ‘she’ knows the true hour of his death.
Yes, mystery surrounds Mr. Poe in death as it did in life and it will be interesting to see how ABC TV presents the unmatchable Pioneer of Macabre Murder Mysteries, Mr. Edgar Allan Poe. I’ll give the new show a viewing, will you?
