Joan Rivers: Sun Gemini-Moon Sagittarius

Today as I watch a re-broadcast of the celebration of Joan Rivers on TV this astrologer had to have a look at her natal horoscope which may be viewed here:  http://www.astro.com/cgi/chart.cgi?wgid=wgeJwljssKwjAQRb9GsDCFvFqrIRtdCBVcKCIuI41tqE2kSQ35exNczeVwuWeCHrUgvJ-ExNx04qK_anbQWmngBQ3UgLeUAiI7hGBgAXrZAYL9bO34jmZF0PqkTe9SONjF-FjA-ZHp7VrAhoaqBoYMbWABVkFJWJV2EJfd08hJiexJ7b810056JZqE2sWodLKdP338pCcnPwjpAx9cFCXmsxP4fvwBv1052A (apologies–the WordPress add-a-link tab isn’t working for me today.)

Born in Brooklyn, New York on June 8, 1933 (2:00 AM), Ms. Rivers had the communication and fast-thinking skills of a Sun Gemini opposing Moon in Jupiter-ruled Sagittarius, sign of actors and comedians. Not that Geminis can’t be funny, too!  Her just-past Full Moon birth indicates that relationships and hyper-awareness were very basic themes in her life.

As you see from the year 1933, Joan Rivers was born during the war torn Mars-Jupiter-Neptune conjunction in Virgo (sign of The Critic and she was that both onstage and on the Red Carpet, pioneering the “who are you wearing?” schtick.) These planets are the ‘Marseillaise Trio’ with its take-no-prisoners energies. For Joan the Trio appears in the 6th house of Dedicated Work and with her chart-ruler Mars (planet of impulse, energy, and action–Ascendant 3Ari53) Joan is famous for her decades of hard work in Comedy and her highly energized, even manic, performances.

Another factor indicating her high energy level and long career is a trine between natal Sun (ego, pride, physical constitution) and authoritative Saturn (work, concentration) showing longevity of life (June 8, 1933–September 4, 2014, age 81) and her decades-long career. Plus, natal Midheaven (Goal/Career/Public Status) is in Saturn-ruled Capricorn.

Her daughter Melissa (b. January 20, 1968 in NY) has said that her mother in private wasn’t funny with people she didn’t know–such as at dinner parties. She was “shy and nervous” and of course anyone who’s familiar with the Mercury-ruled sign of Gemini knows how very nervous they can be. In addition, Joan’s Mercury and Venus are conjoined @29Gem, a critical or crisis degree. Mercury-Venus gives writing talent and pleasant contacts with the public. Perhaps some of the hectic or manic energy Joan Rivers often displayed along with the ‘quick comeback’ ability of Gemini may be found within the critical 29th degree that is doubly emphasized in her natal horoscope.

After all, a 29th degree may be said to be impatient to reach the next sign which for Joan is Moon-ruled Cancer–in fact, 00Can00, a World Point of Prominence, Fame, and Success–and the Moon rules such realms as publicity and the public.

Now this is merely a brief astro-portrait of Joan Rivers and you may of course find much more information hidden in her natal chart so feel free to leave your insights with this post. Disagree if you must, add more info if it suits! 

To close, I add that to me, one of the best things to say about anyone who has passed away is, she will be missed. May the brilliant Joan Rivers R.I.P.

Can ‘vintage shopping’ help save the environment?

Maybe not so much but it can certainly look stylish, oui?

And here’s a second view from a different angle!

Symbol of 8 = Saturn

Having a plethora of Capricorn planets natally certainly helps me resonate with the number 8 even though in Numerology, I am considered a 9.

Whether 8-ish or 9-ish, I had a little time just now to snoop ’round the interweb and I found an interesting article concerning the Olympics and Saturn’s 8 vibration. You may wish to check it out at BrightStarLights, a blog of “Astrology, Fashion, and Celebrities”…where you can also read astrological info about your favorite celebrities – stars of the stars:

http://brightstarlights.wordpress.com/2008/08/08/8-8-2008-numerology-and-the-olympics/

While it’s true that Saturn, as the ancient ruler of Astrology, is in touch with the occult number 8, still  we tend to think of the old Lesson-bringer as being connected to the number 10 because of Saturn’s natural house in modern horoscopes. Which may go to show that all is connected underneath – or that ‘modern’ Astrology isn’t always completely in tune with traditional, ancient teachings, teachings which were certainly culturally sound in their time.

Then you may as well add 8 + 10 = 18 = 9.

And there you go, 9 = the number of Completion!

Kaleidoscope Art Show for You!

 

Hope this Art Slideshow displays in your browser but if not, go to http://slide.com/judecowell 

and take your pick of several displays of my artwork.

If you’re an artist, you may add an image of your own to one of my collections, but no photos please, and keep to the theme, if you may. Thanks!

Frisky Friday Art: Faye’s Magic Lamp

Faye\'s Magic Lamp by jude cowell

Faye’s Magic Lamp, drawing by jude cowell 2008…not Aladdin’s Lamp prexactly, but you may still click to enlarge for the genie just may appear.

So why, Frisky Friday Art? Friday is the day of Venus who appreciates the creative arts! (Perhaps not mine, but generally speaking, she does.)

And it’s my poor attempt to balance the weightier and lamentable subject matter to be found here bwo astrologically based  comments on…ugh and arghhh…politics, that organized system of hatreds in process of overtaking, undermining, and overwhelming our lives.

For the majority of our global population, the New Millennium sux so far–and I blame it primarily on racketeering, warmongering, conscience-free sociopaths. How ’bout you?

(And please don’t pretend you don’t know their names.)

Art of Politics or Politics of Art? Not here!

Lila and the Red table

Well, not s’much anyway.

But you will find a blend of Art bwo my oil and watercolour pencil drawings, and Politics bwo Political Astrology (actually called, Mundane Astrology) here at Jude’s Threshold where I like to smoosh together all my interests including Political Cat Limericks which I purloin from:

http://limslimericks.blogspot.com  (kitty litter scratches from our main bard and muse Mr.A.Cat, an agent formerly in service to our nation–contains some cat photos, too);

http://starsoverwashington.blogspot.com  (looking under the hood of Politics bwo the Stars overhead–AND it’s linky rich);

and there’s the occasional mention here of modestly priced Art Downloads from my Lulu Storefront:

http://stores.lulu.com/judecowell   plus,  you are welcome to request a particular image for addition to Lulu if you find one you favor overmuchly, perhaps from:

http://cosmicpersonadesigns.blogspot.com (mask-infused, archetypal, Chiffonery and Erotic Art–for 17+ers);

http://secretmoonart.blogspot.com  (cosmic, moon, botanical, children’s, and Fairy Art);

http://dreamyfishart.blogspot.com  (botanical portraits of tropical fish ensnared within their private dream scenarios–Saturn’s realism meets Neptune’s undersea illusions.)

So I hope you’ll mosey by a blog or two on my list for Stars, Politics, cat rhymeries,  or to view some of the online gallery images which make up this web of snuggly fabric of creativity which I’ve weaved into a tapestry just for you!
