Hi Mystic! First of all, I love your work and have been a fan since way back when your books were all in hard copy!
Anyway I just have a question – a few months ago I saw a doco on Pat Benatar and was fascinated by her story.
This from Wikipedia – “Halloween 1977 proved a pivotal night in Benatar’s early, spandexed stage persona. Rather than change out of the costume she wore to a Halloween contest at the Cafe Figaro in Greenwich Village that evening, she went onstage at Catch a Rising Star in costume. Benatar said: “I was dressed as a character from this ridiculous B movie called Cat-Women of the Moon.” Despite performing only her usual songs, she received a standing ovation.”
In the doco, Pat described that as a really important transition in her life from the opera-singing, sweet, married-to-a-military-man persona to the Pat we know. Then in 1979 she met her (now) husband, divorced her old one, and recorded her hit album. But she says that 1977 night was the launch point of all that.
I am fascinated by this idea of total rebirth. Wondering if there’s any significant astro in there? Part of me really wants to experience the same snake-like skin-shedding experience.
Thanks Mystic – Questing Virgo
Thank you Questing Virgo!
That Halloween was Uranus on Pat Benatar’s Moon & trining her Mars-Venus in Pisces. So Uranian morphs often come around as a WOW moment, a psychic flashpoint, a revelation. Even if the results take a while to play out, that moment – the Mabarosi moment, when your whole lifescape is illuminated as if by a lightning bolt – is magic and extremely lucid.
So this fits, hey. It was also Uranus trine Jupiter in general – so a strong Uranian week, quite apart from whatever was going on in P.B’s chart.
Until early 2015, we can tap Uranian Vibes non-stop if we care to – as Uranus is basically aspecting Pluto (the Zap Zone) this whole time. Or you can just try to block out the Uranian Vibes & feel vaguely agitated half the time lol. This is why my Scopes can seem weird on occasion, i am trying to align us with the Uranian Vibes as i think that’s the main pathway to peace, power & prosperity these days.
One way or another, Halloween IS always a major turning point though. Beneath all the sugar & pumpkin crap and regardless of what hemisphere you live in, it’s an ancient Pagan festival for a reason: Samhain or Beltane.
