The Scorpiest Scorp Of All

Hedy Lamarr Submarine Diagrams

So I knew Hedy Lamarr was a beautiful & exotic 1940s/50s era actress and that she was a Scorpio. But just HOW Scorpio she was is shown  in this amazing installation here.

Like many a Scorp, she was a devotee to  nude swimming but also the first woman to ever simulate an orgasm onscreen…Her candid autobiography created a scandal AND she designed anti-torpedo technology…

Hedy Lamarr Autobiography

“…In her ex-husband’s Salzburg villa, the immigrant had seen plans for remote controlled torpedoes, which were never built because the radio controls proved to be too unreliable. After the outbreak of the Second World War, she worked on practical ideas to effectively fight the Hitler regime.At a party in Hollywood, Lamarr met George Antheil, an avant-garde composer who also wrote film scores. While playing the piano with the composer, the actress suddenly has an important idea for her torpedo control system. Antheil sets up the system on 88 frequencies, as this number corresponds to the number of keys on a piano. To construct it, he employs something similar to the player piano sheet music that he used in his Ballet Mécanique…

 

…In December 1940, the frequency-switching device developed by Lamarr and Antheil was sent to the National Inventors’ Council. A patent was awarded on August 11, 1942. The two inventors leave it to the American military to figure out how to use the device. Lamarr’s and Antheil’s Secret Communication System disappears into the U.S. Army’s filing cabinets…

“Finally, in 1962, as the Cuba crisis brews the technology now known as frequency hopping is put to use. Its purpose is not to control torpedoes, but to allow for safe communications among blockading ships – whereupon the principles behind the patent become part of fundamental U.S. military communications technology. Today, this technology is not only the foundation for the U.S. military’s satellite defense system, but also used widely in the private sector, particularly for cordless and mobile telephones.” More here.

Her chart is here; Note the Jupiter-Uranus conjunction in Aquarius, Moon Neptune conjunction and Saturn-Pluto conjunction.. What a singular soul & fancy being considered a sexual adventuress-rebel, one of the most beautiful woman in movies and owning the patent upon which wireless transmission is based.

A tiny Scorpio story – did someone say recently, imagine the baby born last weekend? So last Saturday, I looked out my window and there is this young, o so young couple, sort of loitering on the footpath and on closer inspection, I realised she was pregnant and in labour. Anyway, I bounced out to say hi and see if all was OK – it was fine – they were very sweet and we had a little chat and I wished them all the best. Then, quelle coincidence! Last night, in the middle of town, I ran into them again… Read more »

That’s cute! You were the Witness in the story I think, if it were a dream I wonder how you would interpret that?
I had a moment in the lift of the hospital when I went to visit my Zap Zone baby Godson recently (his parents are angels btw).

This sleazy junkie looking dude dressed in all black pushing a toddler in a pram smiled in a glassy way and told me he had just another baby…I nearly cried. The ‘other ‘ zap zone baby I couldn’t help thinking…

o nice point – the Witness of their story – I was searching for that frame for it and you found it for me, Ta Muchly!

I think I do grok it, but then I also note that wherever he was in his head, he was filled with joy enough to smile and tell a stranger of the new life in his life. The dudes who ain’t smiling in the maternity ward are the ones that freak me out. But then, I am also a libran-moon ; )

You are so right… But I do know a couple with such issues and two kids. Love is a verb and while they may feel love for the kids they don’t always show it in their actions. Wild fights, passing out with strangers in the house and their kids there, D.U.I. Etc so I am a cynic.

Yes, mentioned here once that I’d read that only a Scorp can defeat an Aries….so, only one challenge left….(joking…Not into defeating people…only myself and those things that need straightening…).

But right you are I feel with the fixed signs. I have very little in fixed (mutable on all four angles) which may attribute to a bit of wishy-washyness even for an Aries, Cap Moon. All action but needing a bit of “stick to itness”…Oh we get there alright, but when? 🙂

Glad you had the opportunity to have a soul type relationship with the daughter after losing your’s. Bless.

Clicking on Mystic’s installation link, the “silk taffeta” submarine….

~Michaela Melián, Life as a Woman, 2001, Wood, silk taffeta, 400 x 50 x 105 cm, Installation Villa Arson, Nice, 2002~

hit me rather pathetic like. I get the message but she deserves better than that piece of crap. I mean, I really refrain from judgement overall, but my first impression was “pathetic”.

Good gawd seems any old thing is considered art these days. Libra rules my 5th house and I have Neptune there trine Pisces MC. I know art/beauty when it hits me and that ain’t it.

Am not sure if this is related but she was also a amatuer mathematician and helped invent the technology which made mobile phones possible. She made quite an impact. Also heard this story that when she was younger she married this rich, much older man who liked to show off her and all the expensive jewellery he bought her. He was also v. possessive and virtually kept her prisoner. So one night, there was a dinner party and she put on all her most expensive jewellery, put in an appearance and then claimed she was unwell and asked her husband… Read more »

Too, her Cancer Saturn and Pluto in 12th are in a quite wide trine to Scorpio Sun and Merc in 5th. I’d give it to her just cuz she obviously channeled something very creatively inspired to help the world at a crucial time.

Saturn and Pluto can be about channeling very constructively (Saturn) something quite powerful (Pluto) like the universal mind (12th), itself. Magic, I say. Hedy helped save the world from evil forces. No shit.

Too bad the fruition of her idea was delayed until the 60’s tho. I wonder why. Goodness this could get into politics and I’m certainly not going there.

She was (is? Don’t know if she’s still living?) but she was a total package, for sure.

Yes, it came naturally, didn’t it?

Looked at my Solar Return for 2011 the other day and on first look, looked like crap. Satun in Libra MC opposite Aries Sun on IC square Pluto in 1st.

All I saw was more TAXES and AUTHORITIES….but Hedy gives heart. The squares can just be that I’m working to channel something groundbreaking for myself.

It’s given new meaning to trans. Pluto conjunct my Saturn. Mystic’s thread helped me to look at it in a new way. XO to Myst.

LUURVED the one titled ‘Life as a Woman’, 2001, Thread, watercolor, 40 x 30 cm’ it’s absolutely infused with crazy Aquarian zig-zag logic – right down to the initials of it’s creater, Michaela Melián.
