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