Shakespeare Knew His Astro Schizz

HELENA
Monsieur Parolles, you were born under a charitable star.
PAROLLES
Under Mars, I.
HELENA
I especially think, under Mars.
PAROLLES
Why under Mars?
HELENA
The wars have so kept you under that you must needs
be born under Mars.
PAROLLES
When he was predominant.
HELENA
When he was retrograde, I think, rather.
PAROLLES
Why think you so?
HELENA
You go so much backward when you fight.
PAROLLES
That’s for advantage.

Lol. Shakespeare knew his astro-schizz.  Sun in Taurus, Moon in Libra. Crab Rising. He was SUCH a Taurus he left his “2nd best bed” to his wife in his will. Mercury in Aries – 16 degrees, conjunct mine!  Pluto on his Pisces Midheaven – that’ll do it for the enduring “brand.”

Also, f.y.i. as i have a tonne of emails re this: Dreaming of men (Mars = Men) from your past, when Mars is Retro totally goes with the turf. It’s a neural churn process. Ultimately, you will wind up way better balanced & mentally aligned re these dudes + relationships in general.

‘For, by the sacred radiance of the sun,
The mysteries of Hecate and the night,
By all the operations of the orbs
From whom we do exist and cease to be.’

King Lear

 

There are hundreds of references to astrology, magic and the old gods in the works of Shakespeare and he often has his villains or weak characters denouncing it lol.  He was friends with the Court Astrologer, Dr John Dee, one of the most fascinating men of history. Like the playwright Aphra Behn, he also spied. His code name: 007.

i have the shakespeare asteroid transiting my ascendant right now; have read his (or was it ann hathaway, his wife’s co-authorship?) work.
But, I’ve read his Moon was in Taurus, which makes a lot of logic sense b/cause he never strayed to express ideas outside of the sentiments of the times, which he conveyed with such genius, faithfulness and beauty.

My insight came from film and television, after i actually went out and was under moonlight or even indoors, surrounded by glass panelled reflections at odd angles. The movie i watched also kept returning to a place in Tangiers, and the sign kept coming on screen: Cafe de Mille et Une Nuits. I was at an outdoor cinema, and the Moon and Mars rose above the screen. Had been watching the character Rust Cohle earlier. Having severe pattern recognition now. Oh god why are there Scorpios. It is important to keep remembering they are not good for me, even now… Read more »

I don’t even have a best bed, let alone a 2nd best bed. For a Taurus like me, this is infuriating. I remember when I was so broke, I slept on a two inch foam mat three feet wide like you’d use camping. I actually thought it was kind of good for my back. But my new Pisces girlfriend kept complaining her knees hurt. Get a mattress or no more knee-knocking. So I went to the mattress store and looked at what I could afford: almost nothing. I asked about the two cheapest mattress sets, $100 and $75. I said… Read more »

My life changed when I spent more than I could afford on a mattress . Like I was sleeping on a cloud. No more sweaty nights on that vile foamcore. No more rolling downhill into the centre to meet equally sweaty (ok yes sexy but whatever) then-bf. This isn’t to gloat, but to offer cosmic support for purchasing a slice of mattress heaven if at all possible.

My very very long term friends are Scorps, that I don’t see all the time, but the friendship always there. My Scorp moon resonates I guess.

The ‘friend’ that is

Will reply re friend thing later this arvo. Not that I have any answers. Had a similar thing happen with an Aqua. They’re what I call Frenemies. Be my friend or fuq off is my policy.

Veronica

YES! Some Aqua people or aqua influenced people have this thing where their diverse friends sort of fight over them because they have such a wide -ranging group of people and bring them all together, at fun events.

Seen that happen quite a few times cos I have several aqua friends, and aqua is my 5th

Frenemy sounds really about right, Scorpb. It seems really school -girlish.

I know I said I’d get back to you about this. I’m too tired now to talk about my situ. Suffice to say, sometimes you have to let peeps go. I’m sure you know what constitutes a good friendship.

This area is a bit of a blind spot for me. There is probably something to learn here, but i can’t quite see it, I don’t know what the agenda is.

V, about your friend. she’s not sounding very friendly. more disrespectful. it’s tempting to say forget about her/it, only give your energy to people who honour you. but are there layers here that you can mine for some realisation? do you have insights into any of these disappointing experiences? is there a pattern behind the pattern? I’m wondering about the emotional significance – is there an issue of dependence anywhere? I think this moon would illuminate that. you could meditate on where your attachment to this person is in your body – mind, heart, gut, genitals, etc. and sever it… Read more »

Thanks Cal, the image that came to mind today was of me at 15 yrs, giving my stepma a little potted azalea, not in a fancy pot but I had heard her telling dad she wanted azaleas for the garden. When I gave it to her, she saw that I had left the price tag on the bottom. Not long afterwards, for Christmas she gave us very nice, expensive perfumes and facial stuff for Christmas, and left all the price tags on.

I haven’t dreamt of my Sag soul mate yet. I think I really got over that connection. It took me to some dark places, but I don’t feel any compulsion about him anymore. I don’t know how these connections work. Them seem to turn on and off but very few news ones made. At least, for me. Yet.

Maybe some hurt over the life or path that could have been? I’m still friendly with most of my significant exes.

What seems to be coming up for me with this retro is deep, significant friendships with women, which I’ve always had, starting with my sister, but seem to be fading now as I’m I’m in deep with the Leo. I’ve got quite mixed feelings about it

I have wondered about that past life side too. I have only had one irritating past life with him that has come up. He was my husband and we were Germanic farming people. He was an angry man and he made me dress up in some white sack of a dress then murdered me in a field. I don’t recall why, but he tried to pass it off as fertility blessing to the Goddess to the community, who didn’t believe him. I think that pissed me off more than than the murder itself. 🙂 This life I guess I feel… Read more »

Oh thankgod for this post. It all makes so much sense now. Since my breakup with the aqua/toro ex last September, I’ve literally lost count of the number of times I’ve dreamt about him. This is on top of feeling extra connected to him in a heightened intuitive way, which is bad enough when you’re trying to move on. Granted I was definitely trying to skip the giving period with a non-stop daily schedule, but there’s no escaping tormenting nocturnal rehashings of the painful past. At one point I had 4 consecutive nights of dreams about him. Gah. I don’t… Read more »

Last night I dreamt that I was trying to make a low carb almond cake with chocolate icing for my parents, and I couldn’t find my favourite fluted flan tin. I searched all my cupboards looking through mountains of tins which were the wrong shape or size, and then finally found it in a tupperware basin under the sink. By this time, the cake mixture had separated into an evil-looking pink ooze….. which tasted delicious…..

This has nothing to do with Shakespeare, or dreaming about men. Once again I am totally out of sync with the astro….

Hi all.

Shakespeare was illiterate. The man who really wrote the plays and poems was highly educated, well traveled, and had to be a lawyer and present in royal court to know what he wrote about. The movie made a believer out of me, and if you see the movie you understand why he had to hide himself as a political move and all that stuff is historically accurate. I watched a documentary about the making of the movie and where the writers got their info…. Totally compelling. So i regret that the astro about him is perhaps not him. But that… Read more »

Hi Nr and light fishing, I haven’t see the film at all but I loved Shakespeare growing up, and basically did a lot of reading into the whole controversy surrounding his identity. I looked this all up back in high school, but based on everything I’ve read, Shakespeare was the nom De plume of the 17th Earl of Oxford, Edward De Vere. His countenance was said to shake spears, and his emblem was of a lion shaking a spear. Everything I read pointed to this. Would love to know De Vere’s astro if it’s available. What’s the films conclusion??

Yes, So the film depicts De Vere as the playwright and a greedy drunk actor as taking responsibility to the public for his writings. I don’t want to spoil it too much because it is such a good compelling story based on the evidence. But there is a connection to the Queen Elizabeth that is too juicy and scandalous to believe but I remember learning about the Tudors and English monarchy in general being a little bit twisted so totally believable. Explained so much to me why De Vere couldn’t publicly be known and why working from “behind the scenes”… Read more »

Yes thanks for the contribution! I can’t believe Shakespeare was illiterate. There’s no way a man of such prose could be such.

The movie fascinates me to no end. I haven’t made it a point to do research into the man, but reading what you and Light below commented, apparently the movie is not too far from commentary that exists.

What a shame. We are so blessed to have the gifts and work of Shakespeare but wow at what a dramatic cost. I hope Shakespeare was able to die in peace.

light fishing
light fishing

Shakespeare wasn’t illiterate, but the man who posed as the writer was. He really could barely write his own name. De Vere was a highly educated lawyer and most likely the true writer of the plays and poems. Don’t know about Francis Bacon theory but Chris Marlow or Ben Johnson, cant remember actually, published all of Shakespeare’s plays years after De Vere died because they were entrusted to the originals and that’s historical fact. There was a writer at the time that went by Francis Beaumont…. wonder if that is a confusion?

Rather, Francis Bacon wrote the works attributed to shakespeare. I heard that theory in college too and hated it. Like – why couldn’t the lower class person make it? Why’s it have to be trickery? Shakespeare’s work is performance art. Its easy to forget when reading. But its so meta… Anyway…can’t wait to watch the movie!

Medical knowledge was linked to astro and the humours, then. Some of my old astro books (recently turfed – well a year ago pre interstate move) were that kind of fatalistic, heavy kind of astrology and many of the illustrations hailed from this period of history, some a bit earlier. Astro was very much part of our scientific and political culture. But PIABs know this is true today 🙂 Myst, did you ever post about the Macbeths? I wonder about their Lilith placements.

Yes, it does manifest differently in females, but a huge amount of that list applies to both sexes. (Females are better at adapting to social bullshit, more empathetic, tend more towards depression and self-injury than acting out with violence or temper tantrums like a male aspie might do – things like that, but the basic issues are the same.
