Happy Birthday Brigitte Bardot

Filed in MOON SIGNS, LIBRA

Brigitte Bardot playing guitar on the beach

Today is BB’s birthday & she really is a classic free-loving multiple conjunct Libran — Sun, Mercury and Jupiter. Saggo Rising, a tight Venus-Neptune conjunction and Moon in Gemini on the cusp of her House of Love.

This is from the Guardian

“…Simone De Beauvoir wrote: “When Marlene Dietrich exhibited her silk-wrapped thighs while singing in her husky voice, she was casting a spell . . . Brigitte Bardot doesn’t cast spells; she acts. Her flesh doesn’t have the generosity that symbolises passivity. Her clothes are not fetishes and when she undresses, she reveals no mystery. She simply shows off her body, which is in constant movement. She walks, she dances, she moves. In the hunting game, she is both hunter and prey. Males are an object for her, as much as she is an object for them. This is precisely what hurts males’ pride.” It was clear to all that Bardot, like Albert Camus’s stranger, experienced the world through her senses.

 

Nowadays, feminists both in Britain and the US would shriek in horror at the thought that Bardot might be heralded as the emblem of the liberated woman. But that is just how designer Nicole Farhi remembers her: “Bardot was totally liberated; it was extraordinary to see, especially at a time when no women were allowed to be, and it was all the more unusual that she came from a bourgeois family. It was fantastic to see that she could just throw conventions away. She lived the way she pleased, she dressed the way she wanted; in that sense her freedom was very provocative.”

 

Provocative but never lewd. “A liberated woman is the opposite of an easy and frivolous woman,” wrote De Beauvoir. For her, Bardot’s sense of freedom was absolute, almost existential. Unlike today’s self-acclaimed liberated young women, who claim to feel empowered by the act of pole-dancing, with Bardot there is no attempt at manipulation or deception.

 

“Bardot’s naturalness seems more perverse than any kind of sophistication. To despise as she does jewels, makeup and high heels is to refuse to transform oneself into an idol. It is to assert oneself the equal of men. It is to recognise that between men and women, there is only desire and mutual pleasure. This is precisely what made her appear so dangerous in the eyes of society,” wrote De Beauvoir…”

And, yes there is probably some argument against her for her denouncing a certain racial group over their animal rights abuses but you know what? The woman is Saggo Rising (ie; will say what she wants, freedom of speech LOUD being paramount to Saggability) but I think a lot of the hostility toward her has more to do with the above-mentioned free-living, lack of corseting etc and growing old…old, barefoot, sun-tanned & apparently individuated as all get out.

Ursula Andress, haha. Nice pun but.
BB is awesome. How many ppl do you know that get MORE radical as they get older? I think she can feel the time running out and is fighting to leave something behind rather than her sexy image.
So she didn’t want to be a mother- neither did Vivien Leigh. My dad always dismisses them as narcissists- and what the hell is wrong with that?

always get her confused
with ursula undress… (name right?)

That’s brilliant Whateves, you go to a bar looking divine & he has to pick you up. And there is ‘the audience’ factor of playing out a fantasy in real time. It’s a highly recommended fastasy. Even meeting in an Adult shop pretending you don’t know each other & loudly sak questions to a strange man or woman. Unfortunately, the men just don’t have the creative imaginations. Just try asking what their 5 favourite fantasies are………. a gulp….if you’re lucky. There IS trouble in France AND Netherlands. Belgium 30 years ago was the most racist place in the world i… Read more »

French men are the essence of women worshippers I concur pegasus – one tried to seduce me out of the arms of “the one” at a time when he was working a lot at night. It was a true proving of my previous comment about once a libran falls for you they’re there all the way. Infidelity was not an option for me but god did that lovely french man try. So deeply romantic – I do suspect my reluctance was part of the game tho. They do love a challenge. Sigh, no they don’t have great imaginations for the… Read more »

Okily dokily am a novice at this – I have Uranus in Libra & Lilith in Virgo, both in 4th house. That’s for natal chart. Do I need to look at transit?

I think you need to track down your bewitching frock & ambush 😉

whatever

Re the ambush yeah – familiarity is the mother of invention : o )

If you pull down the scroll down menu for the type of chart in astrodienst you can see one for with transits – click on that and voila your transits will show up on the outside of your usual birthchart – be interesting to see what uranus and lilith were transiting on the day of your “event” considering uranus is all abt the electrical sudden acts and lilith the girls on top vamp vibe. will just find the lilith link for you, bak in a minute.

I just had a look for last friday, uranus was in pisces & lilith in capricorn

Thanks for your help!

No wuckers I’m a lilith pusher from way back – this site has some interesting stuff but recently there’s a lot more about her on the net than there used to be if you google – she’s having some kind of renaissance methinks – and about time too – rise up snake goddess I say. Uranus is on your Midheaven at the moment too? we must be similar ages – check out the house lilith was transiting – she’s an energy to loove into (weird I was actually typing “to look into” then) – I think similar to is it… Read more »

Thanks for the info, off to have a read now. Goodness – Erzulie, haven’t heard her name for so long….I’m a Pomba Gira girl myself, I have 1 ‘official’ Pomba & another sexy lady PG statue my friend made for me, that I have re-connected to within the last 2 weeks, come to think about it. I used to honour her once a week on her day but haven’t done that for years. I seem to have been reaching out to her again now that I consciously realise. I’m 38 btw, will have a look & see if uranus is… Read more »

yup you’re right, on the MC. you’re good!

had never heard of Pomba – interesting LL thanks for sharing that. You never hear about these aspects of the feminine – is it hard to find books – your tangent was santeria? I only have one little book about the deities but precious not very indepth tho. Also just realised I meant the nmazca sire has some interesting stuff not “this site” as in Mystics site – she has a whole lotta great lilith goin on as well. Has Merc gone direct yet ? it’s funny I’m realising all the ways my words could be/have been misconstrued when hours… Read more »

There are hardly an books on Pomba Gira, that I’ve come across. Most info is from the net. She’s considered a female consort to Eshu/Exu.

Don’t worry about words – they will no doubt always be misconstrued!

OMG that hasn’t happened for ages – my comment is awaiting moderation – it’s like that time I was banned from the nightclub LOL the deets are in a post hanging in cyberspace limbo LL – fingers crossed they make it thru xxx

AG I have been admiring your avatar since it popped up – love the way you’re fully clothed yet entirely seductive with it and no I’m not coming on to you – but some peeps get that fully clad alluring thing just so and you are one of them. Something young but with the wisdom of the ages about it. GOD Maybe I am coming on to you LOL

Shit soz Ag – that was more about David than you – I’m outta here before my mercurial scorpion tongue gets me into trouble.

ok so by the definition you just gave , im not obsessed over her … altough i know the feeling . Dont get that with her she does make me feel calm and comfy when shes feeling good but when shes angry ..jeezz. Enough about her anyway …..Thanks tho

and, nah ~ no offense taken, whatever ; ).

and ja, it’s really very easy shooting from that angle….everyone can look a little wanton …… although, i still rated my avatar G ;p.

She looks and acts just like Kara and just as beautiful…. except Kara cant imagine anything so gross as to go barefoot ( unless its on the beach) doesnt wear bras ( doesnt need to) plays guitar , etc sees men as objects and generally doesnt give a stuff what anyone thinks … or are these just typical libran traits???

davidl
davidl

no, your just obsessed….though your description of her makes her the type that one could get easily obsessed by. I was married once to one of those libra beauties, I too was obsessed by her beauty and incredible sexuality, it turned bad, real bad very quickly due to her incredible anger and emotional instability. Thank god we didn’t have children, I just escaped with my life !

whatever
whatever

You know I was thinkin yesterday I WISH david would give a male perspective on the illusion of lust vs love. 3 words LOL. Succinct. Direct. Perfect.

Librans need a rudder sometimes – and while you’re being that person we’ll be telling you how you need to do it with more panache. Marriage may have been a flop but I bet her frock and hair were divine on the day tho…

Damons22/jan
Damons22/jan

no im not obsessed and shes not that bad … looked up the definition of obsessed and im borderline i admit . Sometimes i think of her and sometimes i dont . I WORSHIP THIS WOMAN!!!! aaahhhhhhh . Ooohhhh what am i going to do? thats right detatch and do nothing!!

Go worship at the altar of the self for a while – you’re worth it.

Can I just say one more thing here. In my experience no girl that ever made me feel the way you feel right now was right. The right girls always made me feel calm, secure, comfy.
There is one sure way of knowing if its obsession by the way. Its the sudden breaking out in a sweat for no other reason than the mention or thought of her. Its a physical illness not unlike an addiction.

David your advice is SO SPOT ON!! why weren’t you dishing this out to ME when I plastered this space with ALL that whining re Le Turd – YOU coulda saved me years, of, well, time wasting. that’s what my obsession was. a waste of time. the tail end anyways. Damons – respect to your painful sitch & BIG empathy for your sense of loss. I’m sorry she’s not there for you now. but DaveyL is CORRECT. “in my experience no girl that ever made me feel the way you feel right now was right. The right girls always made… Read more »

I’d turn for Kate in a nano-sec!!
she’s teflon – who falls from grace, gets obsessed with a nob like Pete D & springs back like nothing went down, hotter than ever?

Helena’s H.O.T – how divine were her & Michael as a couple?
and her style. and her ability to creative direct Interview Mag.

frig, i’d do kate as a woman too 🙂
such a naughty little kitty cat, she is. love her too.

but….for me, helena is just a goddess. that sexy mix of viking and inca blood just does crazy things to me. and she’s all woman….and loves to eat!

can you just imagine the heat between her and michael?
makes me wonder how awesome paula yates must’ve been to make him stray from that great dane…

xox rockstar libran publicist xox
xox rockstar libran publicist xox

K we agree, Kate’s the bit on the side & Helena’s be long term goddess obsession? AND she is SO NICE. Michael *sigh* was bewitched. but she be clean living, & Paula & he were so obviously soul mates. avec all the naughty bits on the side. which is kinda what sealed it. Paula died of a broken heart, not O.D.

imagine Michael *sigh* & Kate?
just as naughty!!

aqua-girl
aqua-girl

goddamn, yer….that’s it.

kate for a quickie and helena for that drowsy marathon sex.
paula was so funny, frighteningly bright and had her own brand of sauciness too.

oh, the games those two gobbleguts must have played.
i remember reading that they broke the law 11 times in one night and i just thought that terrific and so deeply, deeply sexy.

nooooooo!?!

that would be the bestest 🙂

i know muse but really, don’t know what all the fuss is about. i mean, i tried to dig em esp, when so many artists that i like cite them as a huge influence but it just doesn’t kick in for me ;(.

i’m supposed to be decluttering for a move but i’m remarkably talented at procrastinating. enviably so.

xox rockstar libran publicist xox
xox rockstar libran publicist xox

my (unconfirmed) intel reports thus far Muse, David Bowie, Massive Attack and JACK WHITE (The Dead Weather w the chick from The Kills) – not announced until JJJ brekky show tomoz…but am all over the blog leaks – stand by…..

BOWIE is a really GOOD chance……

I didnt get Muse either.
til I saw em live — BIG sound. R.E.D H.O.T really.

now if they call RADIOHEAD as headliner & I slip off line – is cos I slid off my Morocan floor cushion & hit head on fireplace………PS procrastination can be fun!!

omfg. absolutely rich in rockin’ goodness – omg, how freakin’ good are the dead weather…..that dubbed out cut like a buffalo track is waheeeey.

nite – BTW BDO press release just hit In Box.

No Bowie (yet)

She was my idol as a tween & teen, in fact always.
Her love of animals, her ballet body.
Think it was she that gave me my love of French way back then.
‘And God created Woman’ great title great movie’.
In the movie when she opened the sheet she was wearing & nude underneath
was one of the most sensual scenes in a movie to that date.

So Sun, Merc & Jupiter is a multiple conjuct when in same sign?
So i’m a mc Sagg?
