For some of us, Twin Peaks WAS the 90s. Or it began them at least. It was also the d.n.a of a more surreal – less cheesy and 80s – approach to television. It foundationed for more original television in general.
Multiple Capricorn David Lynch, a highly Neptune-influenced surrealist fresh off the success of the indie Blue Velvet, spooked up the small screen with an explosion of weird that was completely ON SYNCH at the time.
Twin Peaks the first was launched with the signature astro of the late 80s and early 90s – Saturn, Uranus and Neptune in Capricorn. It was Saturn on David Lynch’s Sun and Pluto on his Ascendant in Scorpio. That is so rare – ruler of his Sun ON the Sun and ruler of his Ascendant ON the Ascendant.
He was breaking up with the highly Uranian Isabella Rossellini (star of the haunting Blue Velvet) and he got to pioneer surrealism on television, a Luis Bunuel dream writ large. Nobody had done surrealism on television at all – it was all more or less game shows, shellac hair newsreaders, BBC costume drama, Miami Vice and pundits.
Voila it worked. Didn’t it? it made weirdness mainstream and Lynch a household name. Saturn does that. Pluto blew him open and Saturn turned it pro.
Twin Peaks launched on April 8 1990 with a Lilith-Pluto conjunction in Scorpio and fittingly, Twin Peaks is a small logging town where everyone has a double life, a secret, a clandestine agenda etc. No basement is unpopulated by demons or ghosts. It’s like Jung and Freud are the plumbers there.
So now the Twin Peaks reboot – apparently picking up the story in contemporary times – is to be (again) done by David Lynch, now with Saturn on his Lilith and (the perfect transit for an audacious reboot/career morph) Jupiter nearing his Midheaven and Pluto ON his Mercury. Pluto is also on the Neptune from April 1990.
So i don’t know if i could go back to Twin Peaks, even a reboot, but the astrology is so insanely apt. Thoughts?
