The Astrology Of Martin Shkreli

Filed in Aries

Martin Shkreli Arrest

“My parents were immigrants and janitors,” Shkreli says. “[Trump] inherited wealth! Fuck him. And I thought we could be friends.”

 

Vanity Fair

At first glance, Martin Shkreli – the Big Pharma executive recently arrested on charges of securities fraud, seems totally douchecore.

He’s been on the radar for months – obnoxious tweets about his online dating coups, raising the price of a drug for AIDS patients and newborns by 5000% and most colorfully of all, blowing millions on the new Wu Tang Clan album so that only he could listen to it.

It’s ostentatious, to say the least.  And then, when his big pharma exploits attracted the ire of hard campaigning could-be president Scorpio Hillary Clinton, he was completely unapologetic.

So i went to say something like ‘jeez he’s got a mouth on him’ but Shkreli has has same Mercury as me. In Aries with Uranus sitting on it literally right now, about to turn direct. Right. So I get (sort of) where he is at. Every bit of societal bullshit and hypocrisy just seems so lucid.

But still, 5000% dude?

So Shkreli is a triple Aries – Sun, Mercury and Mars.  He has Moon in Scorpio. He’s got his Mars opposite Pluto and Jupiter-Uranus-Neptune in Sagittarius in trine to all the Aries AND Neptune on the South Node.

So his claims of genius could be vaguely founded. God? Not so much. Neptune on South Node can be a bit Rasputin in vibe.

The Vanity Fair article Everything You Know About Martin Shkreli Is Wrong Or Is It? is nuanced and insightful.  He is such a Pluto in Capricorn figure, with this sage aptly depicting the amoral, chrome-aura world of post Zap Zone hedge funds, bio tech businesses and the modern day healthcare-economy.

But you also have to wonder where the hell you got off when the Daily Mail speculates whether your Twitter account has been hacked or if you’re having a nervous breakdown.

Shkreli has Saturn running over his ebullient Sagittarius planets AND Pluto in square to his Aries Mercury + Mars for the next couple of years.  Given that he is unlikely to shut up, no matter what happens, we will be hearing more from homie for sure.

Thoughts?

I am offended by greed, and as such usually have the most trouble with Taurons. Admittedly, this may be conditioned by the fact that I am related to several of them. Having said that, none of them has been stupid enough to rip me off and them brag about it to the world, they are smart enough to fear the wrath of a multiple Leo. This guy is disgusting, as well as stupid. This is not honesty, this is Trumpian, in your face, what-are-you-going-to-do-about-it effrontery. Like Trump, probably gets off on offending as many people as possible and getting away… Read more »

This guy is indeed the WORST but I also find it annoying that he is now a foil for regular pharma companies who are basking in his refracted hideousness when they in fact are constantly screwing people.

Upon reflection, I have henceforth decided to dub him “Marty McFly”.

I don’t see that his honesty is interesting. He is a bald-faced liar or a truth-teller and it’s all the same to him. And as discussed the other day, the Scorp Moon defends via attack. By pointing out uncomfortable truths. That in no way absolves the dirty nature of his dealings. It is an attempt at normalising his behaviour and celebrating his amorality.

that’s the problem with desperate immigrants who never feel they have stuffed enough in their mouth, all the fucking velvet curtains still won’t get them out of the cave….with all thy getting get thee some understanding.
Trumps father rounded off a invoice of some $950,000+ from a concrete contractor and wrote him a cheque for $1M when he was informed that he was overpaying by some $30+ grand, the old Trump said “that’s ok I always wanted to write a million $ cheque”……class you cant buy

Rilly? Sounds exactly like he did just ‘buy’ that kind of ‘class’. Desperate immigrants is how most countries begin.

Wait, whaaaaa?? Did you srsly just call Trump “classy”? LOLOLOLOL – now that’s a real howler!

Pardon my (good-natured, playful) snark here – because really I am only half-kidding – but you may want to look up the definition of “classy” as I am pretty sure you’re not going to find his picture anywhere near it. He is Mars Rising on Regulus – that’s not class; that’s ostentation!

I think, but not sure, the answer was supposed to be a funny demonstration between someone who is “nouveau riche” and someone who is “old money”. Still very ridiculous to a middle class soul like myself!

As it turns out this was tax fraud on the part of Trump senior, in order to transfer wealth to his offspring without attracting the usual taxes. The children formed a shelf company responsible for maintaining the father’s properties, they then padded the invoices for actual work done on property assets.

Hmmm, I’m Merc in Aries at the 0 deg stationing direct. Also Aries sun, MC and south node. All in the 10th. I think the big difference between this guy and me is that I’m not angry any more, I was, but I was lucky enough to also have love in my life and you can’t have both. Everything he has done was done for one reason, to express that anger. If it was for money, power, we would never have met him. He would be well hidden by public relations firms and a variety of paid spokes people This… Read more »

There’s one word that comes to mind with Nep Scorp in the 5th… inappropriate. In a good way 🙂

I know how Neptune in Scorp tastes and feels. The intensity of it.
In the 4th that must be, have been really challenging.
I also see that that intensity and depth could create an amazing home and family life.

Yes l wanna run and hide with what l’ve read in most descriptions of the Nep in Scorp/4H. I cant remember asking for this stuff (also l got Sun 1H – Moon 7H opposition T squared Nep in 4H, Moon opp Uranus
But countering that l got Mars conjunct higher octave Pluto, Merc conjunct higher octave Uranus and Moon ruled Asc conjunct Neptune.

interesting. as soon as I put the Aries lens over the thing, plus the uranus conjunct, pluto square and the saturn sadge transits, it starts to make sense. and makes me snicker a bit with the ariesness of the thing. As commented further up – just because he talks about this / makes public doesn’t mean he is the first to do it (the drug price thing, they’re all jerks right). the tweets start to sound like an aries who is clawing at walls and / or chest-deep in some kind of fun substance.

I have a sadge friend with scorp moon merc, omg the stuff she comes out with, you can’t possibly take it at face value, well you can, but you simply have to know she is stirring, otherwise you fall into the butthurt lagoon and scorp moon keeps going 😀 once I figured that part out, (easy enough for a gem rising going through a dark patch) yes.

Here’s the sum total of my thoughts on him: ew.

kittentalk
kittentalk

Two cents. He’s not the only guy to do this. He’s just the nihilist who decided to be grandiosely brag about it. Snakes in suits are one thing, but I hope somewhere this sheds light on big pharma GENERALLY. They all have this attitude! They’re just socially attuned to not brag about it.

I’m a triple Aries: sun, mercy and Venus and I’ve been feeling the gob shite vibes recently ha.

It reminded me of a convo with Scorp solicitor working for a major firm over 10 years ago, who said company let out a “leak” re moving offshore, and a couple of thousand of jobs would be lost…this was the prequel to the real story, which turned around was “ok, we’ll stay, but we need to let go of 1,200 people….” And everyone was very understanding ..so maybe the price hike in future goes up only 500% and we all breathe a sigh of relief….
The arrogance.

davidlMM Member
davidl

Arrogance, yes, but relatively transparent. He knew that his original 5000 % wasn’t going to work out other than to say ‘look over here’. He was always going to capitulate and get what he really wanted which was 500%. It’s pretty standard negotiation tactics. Because it was a medicine though everyone was outraged but whatever crime he has committed and the financial consequences of that, his display has shown the public that a company that owns a medicinal patent can hold thousands maybe millions to ransom without breaking any laws. Patent holders become legal monopolies and when the ownership of… Read more »

those early morning tweets- too much cocaine and champagne? I have to wonder if he has deliberately pushed the button of fame is better than getting rich on the quiet. I gave up being a business consultant after an encounter with a pharma company who wanted me to do some work for them. They were I swear not human. I left the company, in dispute with the other directors that day. They got my home number and threatened me. Ugly. But I got out and went back into the world of magic and healing phew and it saved me from… Read more »

Wow you sound like me. I left a science field that did quasi unethical things with human drug testing to go into a field of magic and healing myself! It was good you got out, but you were probably incorruptible by them anyways and you would’ve been forced out eventually. You would be surprised at the number of people who work for big pharma at low levels who i have as clients. Ironic that they depend on alt medicine.

He reminds me of the crazy kings of yore who were so fantastically up on themselves that they did crazy shit that is probably the equivalent of being the only person on the planet with the latest Wu-Tang album. That was probably the thing that tipped him into no man’s land. The golden ticket of popular culture.

I was just wondering about Aries in general. Famous ones are easier to get a pulse on as they can’t really hide what is going on very well. Seems like a lot of unspoken suffering going on. However they don’t generally bleat much and I am nosy for reasons. 🙂 I loved Bjork more a long time ago when she was less mainstream. I wasn’t too fond of her using the N-bomb and modifying a Lennon quote that was already questionable. Amy Winehouse so talented and such a short tragic life making her a member of the 27 club, not… Read more »

Aww, Scorp moon ain’t bad. Every sign has its weakness, truly. I would say jealousy can wreak some serious havoc with this one if not checked. In case, money lust and jealousy of the haves, of course. He wanted all the haves – even the “I have publicly chastised The Trump and refused him a play date.”

Oh, Martin. I looked up his birthday yesterday, saw he was an Aries, and went “WELL OF COURSE HE IS”. Like everyone, I was horrified by his price hikes of lifesaving drugs and instantly hated him. But then I read the VF piece and looked at his pictures and felt myself starting to get a crush on this overconfident mouthy Aries sociopath (my Mars in Aries has a type and this is it, I AM NOT PROUD). Consciously I still think he is an utter douche but there’s more to this than meets the eye. I think he knew this… Read more »

As I said (NOT PROUD), he is sort of my type. I have had a handful of geeky-but-extroverted, hyperintelligent, mildly sociopathic Aries as boyfriends. All of them were diagnosed with ADHD at an early age and tinkering with brain chemistry first for function and later for fun was normalized in them. Their subordinates and investors would oscillate between “GODDAMMN ARIES, STOP SMOKING WEED, TAKE YOUR MEDS, AND FOCUS” and wishing they had never encouraged said med-taking because it turned them from scatterbrain creative genius to competitive, raving tyrant. lol

He wasn’t fleecing the patients, he was fleecing the insurance companies on technicalities. That was the “sin” that brought about the wrath of the Orthodoxy in government; perish the thought that any among the unclean and uninitiated would challenge the gears of the centrally-planned cradle-to-grave-and-beyond financial hegemony. All Newz is bullshit. I’m not saying he’s Saint Martin, but whenever the Newz shows me the perp walk, I have to figure they are trying to sell a narrative like good propagandists.

Like everyone I was initially outraged by his antics, but now I see him as an accidental mirror of society’s fuqed ideas of winning. Of course he’s the scapegoat for what others are doing but not bragging about in lower Aries style. I love what he’s stirring up, but I have a soft spot of Uber Aries bravado coupled with Uranian zing. He’s so arrogant that he thinks all his jokes are super hilarious.

I noticed he looks a million times better in that photo than in all the others. It’s like he wanted to get himself in trouble.

I have a tuff time with Aries “peeps”. IMO, they need full attention, need to look the best and love to gossip. They seem to be amazing friends but I just don’t like their energy. Not to mention the Scorpio Moon. I find them vindictive and controlling.
