Mediatrix #1 – Celebrity Astrology

Antonio Banderas

Antonio Banderas is So Haute Leo.  The Triple Leo (Mercury, Sun, Uranus) Leo Actor has quietly become a student again, studying fashion design at Central Saint Martins in London.  He is majoring in menswear and told student magazine Granary 1: ““There is one garment that I love that was lost in menswear a long time ago, and I would like to experiment with it: the cape”

Antonio Banderas Zorro

Banderas wore a cape magnificently in The Mask Of Zorro. 

He has just had Jupiter over his Sun-Uranus in Leo which is ALSO being activated by Uranus in Aries so he’s in growth mode but what a cool way to do it. AND Neptune over his Pisces Ascendant for the last few years can be like a dissolution of the old aspects of your persona that no longer fit with where you’re at.

He’s split from a long-time partner, probably dissolved the aspect of his persona that said ‘fading star’ and powerfully rebirthed himself as a student of fashion (and capes), re-committing to the core values of that Sun-Uranus in Leo conjunction in the 6th House; Creativity and Learning. This will re-invigorate his brand, his spunk, his everything.

Bryan Randall

And whom, you may ask, is this gentleman? This is Bryan Randall, the new boyfriend of Oscar-winning actor Sandra Bullock. So i spent some time I did not actually have, emailing back and forth with my good friend, the artist/astrologer Rachel Stuart Haas, saying IS THIS GUY DOUCHECORE OR NOT?

And where the hell is his birthday?  He is apparently “49” but he could be an alien for all the internet knows about his birth details. So some of you may recall Ms Bullock’s previous marriage, to one (Aries) Jesse James, douchecore with outlaw pretensions and subsequent divorce after his affair with an adult movie actress came to the attention of the media.

figA

No relationship is guaranteed and we are all human but A-List with D-List can = a whole shitload of unpleasant media. And Sandra Bullock has career longevity. She is and has been A for a very long time. And i think the reason Ms Stuart Haas and i were discussing this SO assiduously is that both JJ and the New One remind us of every time we have ever gone with the douchecore option. They are always good looking. That is a given. Because if they did not grow up with some major appeal, they would never have been able to develop douchecore character traits.

BUT…okay, so here is Bryan with the 23 year old girlfriend he had about three months ago, right before he hooked up with Sandra Bullock. SO no offence to Paris St John, she’s a songwriter and her mother is a Mexican/Cancerian Martial Artist/Model and her father is a Young And the Restless soap star.  

But that ended swiftly and voila Bryan is with Sandra Bullock. It would be epic to think that the approx $51 USD million she earns a year has nothing whatsoever to do with this. She is stunning, erudite and a person of obvious depth. BUT Jesse and now this? However, her chart reveals a few interesting factors. YES Sandra is Leo but with Mars and Venus in Gemini Rising, trined by Moon in Aquarius and LILITH smack-bang on the Descendant.

She does not actually give a damn about convention. YES she may occasionally trot out to do the womens mags media circuit and say she wants a man (just like the readers husbands) who is caring and has nice eyes but actually, NO. If the womens mag media wants to interpret a single, insanely financially independent, sane, cool, creatively fulfilled and mega-powerful A-Lister female as being somehow a sad sack commodity, that’s increasingly their problem, not the Lady Leos.

alg-oscar-sandra-bullock-jpg

Less powerfully, we have the sad case of Rock Icon (the Pretenders) Chrissie Hynde, triple Virgo, sharing her thoughts on rape, her own experiences with sexual assault and theory that victim’s have a part to play in the crime. The old “their fault for high heels and provocative clothing” crap that was astonishing to hear out of the mouth of someone so COOL.

Chrissie Hynde

Chrissie Hynde has been perma-cool for years. The Pretenders were big in their day. She sang/wrote songs about Goddess Energy – Hymn To Her – and has been an ardent advocate for animal rights since forever.  So this amazed me. But it also reminded me of one of her early songs: Tattooed Love Boys – listening anew, okay fine. It’s about a gang rape and she feels now that she somehow was asking for it.

And she has just followed up with a new blast comparing contemporary female singers to sex workers.  Even allowing for some media-took-random-quote-out-of-context absolution, she is on a roll with this crap.

So WHAT is going on? She is Sun, Mercury and Venus in Virgo and Jupiter IS on her Mercury right now. That makes sense. Jupiter crossing your Mercury is like Big-Mouth The Great. If you have a media platform, you will use it. But there is more. She is also having Saturn literally on her Scorpio Moon.

That’s intense. That IS old violations and emotions re ancient angst emerging, ready or not. if i was her astrologer, i would have said do NO media this season, do only therapy – which Saturn on the Moon is radical for. And if you have to do media, talk about sponsoring a cattery and Bast or something.

Finally, for this FIRST and maybe LAST Mediatrix Celebrity Astrology, Mr Jarryd Hayne. If you have not heard of him, he is an Australian footballer who has made it into American football. Here is shown being welcomed into the 49ers.  What i love about this story – apart from the vaguely plausible excuse to become obsessed with NFL – is that Jarryd is SO his astrology.

Jarryd Hayne

When he first announced he was going to quit the Australian league and go for the American one last year, he was howled down. There was a phase when he was universally ridiculed and Hayne – An Aquarius with his Sun Conjunct Mercury Retro – became this kind of icon of hubris.  At one point, sports writers whose biggest sporting challenge was walking back from the pub without wrapping themselves around a lamp-post, were critiquing Hayne’s “lack of fitness.”  It was mental.

But then he did it and broke some American sporting record in the pre-season. So he is Aquarius with his Sun conjunct Retro Mercury (don’t expect explanations – just OMG type deeds when they feel like it) AND Mars in Sagg – trine Jupiter in Aries trine Lilith in Leo. All of which was AMPED by the Jupiter-Uranus trine last year.

Don’t dream it – do it.  Antonio needs to design him a cape.

HAHA! The cape! (of senfield fame)

moonstarkMM Member

i frickin’ love celebrity astro, especially when it’s thoughtful, relevant, and freshly stated, aka MM’s style in general. this series rules. My pet celebs are the kardash-jenners, partially cuz almost all their birth times are avail online AND you can see their family dynamics / private vs. public interactions at play 24/7. Highly educational from an astro perspective…

So Antonio is a Virgoan of Fashion via his Sun in the 6th! I like him. I never understood him with Melanie until I saw her living with Lions as a teen. That would send any Leo. As for Chrissie, I think she is demarcating the difference between the world as it ‘is’ vs the world as it ‘ought to be’. In my perfect world I could vamp it up without concern and play act that I am a sultry creature of lerve but the reality is, over time, I came to regard going out in such gear as a… Read more »

oh no, sandra bullocks new guy is like older twin brother of my ex…..wtf this is (self absorbed) cosmic timing to remind me he is a twot? because they are the SAME except the ex still has dark hair and is younger. this is beyond freaky for me.
oh larddd

also shallow statement but id like to find someone who is non-douchy and simultaneously good in the sack… and its not even the ‘thrill’ of a bad boy, ive genuinly never had the amazeness with a good guy and im feeling really bad fomo

Capes ? Hmmm. My fathers family were cattle farmers and they all had rain / weather protection capes. I can see my uncle now sitting on a horse dripping wet from a tropical storm , all dryasabone caped up. Then you have the poncho 🙂 which can be cape like and again very much a part of the cowboy scene in south USA and Mexico. Capes are in these cases of course not a fashion item. Trying to make them one seems a bit like defeating the purpose ? Hey look at me as I leave the theatre in my… Read more »

God, I am so old that I had to look up the word douchelord.

Glad I dd because it has given me a new word to categorise an ex.

As for Banderas, he lost me when he did that ad where he tells the doughnuts that it’s over. The Ashton Douchelord varietal of same-themed ad for same product was equally awful.

You’re not as old as me and you didn’t know Douchelord ? I think in our day, waaaay back in the day, I remember the term Lord of the Pants. I think it’s the same thing 🙂
How are you beautiful ? Last time I looked you were a pretty hot granny 🙂

Aww…g’bless, Dave. Mid 1st house Saturn transit – you know how it is…everyone’s been saying I look younger lately (renovate, renovate, the body is the primary creation) but I feel infinitely older, and am working my ass off (both literally and on issues that matter). Expect incoming email xx

This was heaps fun Mystic. Banderas IS Puss in Boots. Of course men need capes – my own little leo demanded that I fashion one for him last night – along with a batcave. So – the four year old leo is on fleek. lol Bullock – why not shag gruffly, tattooed, ram-machines? It’s fun 😉 Only sad at other times. Long story. Celebrity is only a status we’ve applied. They’re still people. Maybe she only minutely disperses words between expletives when behind closed doors. Maybe Bourbon is the new water? Chrissy – self abusive guilt transit? I smell chiron… Read more »

Lol ram machines. I just think her guys all have that ‘hottest guy in the trailer park’ look. Really dirty vibes: lots of games, no boundaries.

Aqua-cap-Gemini

I’ve never paid any attention to what her guys look like – but maybe some of us have been there… It is fun until you try to take it serious. Ram-machine.. you know what I mean 😉 Hopefully she’s just blowing off some pent up steam, going through some kind of self exploration (Saturn in Scorp?) awakening adventure. She might come out the end of it knowing herself even better. But yes – it could also be a horrid situation if it gets too tangled. I think Mystic needs to consult to all these peeps – however some lessons need… Read more »

Oh and Banderas. Sun-Uranus in Leo 6th. So cool.

Jessica McOmish
Jessica McOmish

I wonder if the appeal of Douchelords isn’t that they are: 1) mega entertaining 2) a statement as to not needing someone solid 3) a desire not to break the heart of some non-Douchelord who you know you will ultimately tire of in 8 weeks- 24 months, as you do all love interests, worthy or not 4) a strong preference for someone who will give you reason to dump them with some regularity, so there is a perma escape hatch.

Lilith in the 7th here. Should be obvious.

Jessica McOmish

Oh and I recently realised that Lilith in 7th = me being goodie goodie ( a bit like Sandra, no?) and looking for very very Lilithine Lovers who can do Lilith for me.

I am a Virgo ascendant with Mars in my first house (6 degrees conjunct). I am cautious with wearing high heels as I know it would slow me down in the case of an attack. Heels make your legs look awesome but it is creepy how it slows you down physically and less likely to outrun an attack. The only advantage to high heels during an attack is to use the heel like a weapon by piercing them with the pointy heel…and I would rather run than take my chance with stabbing an attacker with the heel. I am like… Read more »

Agree.I think you put this eloquently. I wouldn’t blame a victim as its insensitive, given its impossible to know circumstances, level of trauma underneath all sides…And being liberated sexually does not translate to being taken advantage of or exploited. I know the situation, the reminiscence and conflict. There was no appropriate opportunity or experiences offered through good role models, gentle and strong men, that might have explained to me, that being heavily exposed and simultaneously open, vulnerable could court danger…of course nothing excuses attack. At 16, I unwittingly and ambivalently entered an apartment I was invited to trusting and thinking… Read more »

Actually sorry “whore” as a word, not meant to discriminate or put anyone down. No issues there…

Shouldn’t be a crime or be stigmatised for anyone to love sex with whoever they wish, so long as its mutually consented too…

Oh and moon in late leo is soon to square saturn in scorpio…how appropriate, with mars, venus leo too.

Shallow not thought out off-cuff comment re Bullock: I reckon mars Venus in Gemini and in the first house is fairly well illustrated by her choice of fit looking rough n ready types with a dgaf attitude and a bit rangey- looking, I’m sensitive to the fine line between hot mechanic types (whatever) and outlaw wannabe douchecore… I don’t think she cares too much about “social appropriateness”(?) of a loverrrboy, if I was rich af , I would probably shag whoever I wanted too All those ripped jeans and tatts , is this her sadge dsc hallmark too lol, They… Read more »

How fascinating that Sandra has Lillith on the descendant. So illustrative. The DC is not simply “partners”, but what we project onto the Other. So here she is projecting her unincorporated “bad girl” onto “bad boys”.

FieryPhoenixMM Member
FieryPhoenix

I so agree! It’s fine to play (briefly) with these bad boys but anything longer than a few weeks will lead to collateral damage. If she got more integration with her squeaky clean look and public persona (ie got Lilith on board) she might partner up with more integrated, less one dimensional men. Surely a good thing, esp if kids are involved

Lux Interior etc

OMG I get it! Sandy B doesn’t give a crap for convention!!! She WILL date tattooed bad boys if she wants to, and do it on her own terms! Love it!

Yeah seriously disappointed in Chrissie… The music industry is a hard place to be as a woman but to blame women and girls for rape is so sad and has turned me off her permanently (Moon in Scorpio also)

davidlMM Member
davidl

Yes, any balanced view on rape would never include the woman at fault. The very word screams ‘forced’ ‘non consensual’ heinous crime it is. I’ve did my time in the music industry during the 80s…hedonism was rife and let’s face it, a part of the game. Maybe she is referring to those situations where both parties are virtually unconscious and messy sex ensues followed by finger pointing and possible charges in the light of day. Crying rape when it’s a stupid mistake can hurt the male player in the mess for many years on many ways. I agree though with… Read more »

FWIW, Chrissie Hynde’s comments strike me as self-criticism due to low self-esteem. So let’s not internalize her view when it is so obviously laced with self-judgement, yes? I feel bad for her – she clearly drank The Patriarchy’s Kool Aid. Doesn’t mean we have to, though! “I don’t know – I haven’t really thought about it” is actually code for “I lack the self-awareness to reflect insightfully about the complex reactions provoked by such a dark and traumatic subject matter”. Virgo compartmentalizes things. That what it does. Combine that with a Plutonic Moon and this is precisely the reaction I… Read more »

Wow mystic, that was an epic post 🙂 loved it I absolutely love Antonio going to St Martins doing menswear and wanting to bring back the cape. My sun-merc-uranus 5th house also approves. If I Spanish man cannot bring back the cape who can? SB new beau very suspicious. LA just seems heavy in starfucking and douchecore options. Guys can barely deal with successful partners at the best of times. I loathe cheap behaviour, affairs happen but dude, papers. Really disappointing to read CH views on rape. Very old school and out of touch. Shame. Guess we all deal with… Read more »

I usually don’t go for the beefy types as i tend to prefer ottermode but Mr. Hayne is hella cute. Must be the Aquarius.

And yes Mr. Banderas, bring back capes! Bring back something other than new cargo pants for men’s fashion.

I do wonder if this will be year of the cape. First madonna wearing one…and just yest Kim Kardashian wearing one…

davidlMM Member

Ottermode ? OMG that’s so funny.
The Hayne Plane was a regular at my local cafe and yes he has a calm cool presence that the ladies love. While the male attitude is awe. He reached the top in the toughest body contact sport in Australia at a very young age while looking like butter wouldn’t melt in his mouth. Controlled ballet like 400 cubic inch aggression. He’s the real deal.

Obviously, Antonia hasn’t heard the advice of Edna Mode (of The Incredibles): No Capes! If not familiar, check this scene: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M68ndaZSKa8 which includes one of my fave movie lines of all time “I never look back dahling, It distracts from the NOW.”

But honestly? I would love to see the return of capes in menswear. Swish and Swoop. Panache plus.
