Vanity Fair has the most fascinating article about teen-hacker billionaire internet entrepeneur Sean Parker (Think Napster, think Facebook) and his foibles. He really does redefine the whole eccentric genius space. Justin Timberlake is about to star as him in a movie about his life: The Social Network.
He drives a Tesla electric sports car, is obsessive about herbal teas and sees himself as a Loki-Trickster type character, citing Joseph Campbell’s The Hero With A Thousand Faces…Seriously intriguing guy – so what is his astro like???
He’s Sun conjunct Neptune in Sagittarius square Mars-Jupiter-North Node in Virgo. Oh and Mercury conjunct Uranus in Scorpio.
My quick thoughts on this:
* Again we see the tight conjunction to the North Node that seems to be the signature of people who achieve renown for something unique that they create.
* Mars Jupiter is the classic astro-signature for entrepeneurs. Mars oomphed up by the planet of going way over the top. Saturn going over the whole lot is coinciding with a hyped public profile and presumably, scrutiny.
* Sun-Neptune square Mars gets a shockingly bad rap in some astrology textbooks: potential of delusions, addictions, non-stop fantasist etc. But Sean Parker is a really good example of a well manifested Neptune-Mars situation. Super creative and all. He apparently does like to stay up all night partying though. Neptune square Mars AND Jupiter – there ain’t nobody going to tell this guy to clean his teeth and get some sleep.
* Mercury-Uranus – genius. Always.
