Lieutenant Ellen Ripley: Capricorn

Filed in Capricorn

Ellen Ripley

Yes, Ripley from Alien has a birth date:  January 7 2092, at the Olympia Colony on Luna.  This is official.

A Capricorn, she has Moon in Sagittarius – does this count if you are born ON the Moon? – and Venus, Mars + Jupiter in Aquarius.  Neptune features prominently in her chart and opposite all the Aquarius.  So this could make one paranoid about a slippery and hard to define but flamboyant “enemy” – she did have an intensely hostile and highly threatening alien life species to deal with and nobody believed her.

Competent, an ex Marines corp advisor and obviously of rank, she was just trying to do her job and stay detached from all the on-ship bullshit (Venus-Mars-Jupiter in Aquarius can detach like crazy, outer space could have been quite relaxing, at first) when the alien egg popped and everything went to crap. But still she battled away, Capricorn work ethic reporting for duty. She even saved the spaceship CAT.

Her Moon in Sagittarius is square Uranus – classical astrology textbooks have this down as “unconventional mothering” and well, Ripley had an extremely crap run in that regard with the impregnation by hostile alien probably the shittiest Moon-Uranus manifestation on record.

Her Mercury conjunct the Sun in Aquarius made her a woman of few words but concise when she chose to share:

“Get away from her you bitch” (said to giant acid-goo-venom oozing alien insect thing).

“That’s the only way. We’ll move in pairs. We’ll go step by step and cut off every bulkhead and every vent until we have it cornered. And then we’ll blow it the fuq out into space! Is that acceptable to you?”

The commercial trip on which she encountered the “xenomorph’ was her (1) trying to bring in the money as a single parent and (2) her Saturn Return.

Thoughts?

Didn’t she spend something like 70+ years in cryo sleep? That would put yet another spin on the Saturn return bizzo wouldn’t it?

Nothing like a cap that has her shizz together. And if I was on her spaceship I’d follow everything she said. (Cue Bonnie Tyler I need a Hero) it would be the only hope for getting out alive.

Ripley was so hot ! I first saw the movie when I was 20 ? She was not like any woman I’d ever imagined before 🙂 When she got down to her undies and got down to business I nearly wished I could be on that doomed spacecraft with her.

I was terrified of this movie, now am unsure how it would go down.
Hoping they play it at the Astor, double bill with Aliens, nothing like the 70mm screen.
Just checked IMDB of it’s a horror… duh!
Thanks Mystic, I’m going to make a list a kick ass mentors now (mostly fiction).
What a lovely way to end the week!

The second film was on pay tv a couple of nights ago. Still can’t watch it alone in the dark. At least not without hiding my head behind a pillow for the scary bits.

Goddamn I love a striking woman with the skills to pay the bills and execute alien kills. Sigourney, you my girl! <3

God I loved her so much. One night, aged 21 and having just gone through a huge bunch of bullshit, I watched this film then jumped in the bath and shaved all my hair off. It was awesome. People (read, men) left me right alone for the duration it took to grow back, and it made me feel fierce and safe. I still think of it as my Ripley period.

To go baldly where no man wants to go….hah.

Exactly. When my hair grew back I went down to my local one night and some hideous block said to me ‘geeze, you’re actually quite gorgeous. saw you a while back and thought you were a lezzo. Wanna drink?’ . Which in a nutshell justifies my short-term solution of shaving my hair, and my long-term solution of very rarely dating Aussie men (or going to pubs).

At pubs you get six packs and a sex pox from a sick prick.

And how is that a pick up line? Mensch
I dont say much; just smile.
Not all of us Aussie men are Aussie men.

Seabird

Ha ha!! Precisely. Those are the sorts of pickup lines one gets in pubs. Aussie blokes excel at calling you up when their wife of 15 years dumps them because they remember you fondly from that time you both lived in a squat in your early 20’s and…I don’t know, perhaps we could just erase the last 15 years…(read: perhaps you’ll shag me and that will make me feel better)? Every Aussie I meet that’s not an Aussie is a Kiwi. Two gorgeous Brazilian male students of mine once seriously cornered me to ask why every Aussie girl they asked… Read more »

Ha! That’s great. I did the same in reverse. Had super short hair and then superglued a long braid on. Overnight people started being more polite to me, shopkeepers wanted to talk to me, people stopped yelling abuse from cars…

My fave series of all time. Terrified me as a child, analyzed as a budding art student (monstrous feminine anyone? ) and a great perspective maker. Having a shitty day? Alien bursting out of your chest? No? Then maybe not so bad.

Pi
Pi

I am fascinated by the monstrous feminine too. We “abjectify” it so intensely in (western and other) society. (At least they have goddesses for the energy, in other parts of the world) Likewise I am partly repelled but the fact that I feel that makes me want to investigate *why* I feel that way.

I LOVE the monstrous feminine, use it its yours…

Alouetta

For me the monstrous feminine in Alien was about the actual horror of pregnancy and childbirth. The Queen was the end game of biological determinism – endlessly, voraciously reproducing just because she could. Ripley was wonderful I think because she didn’t come across as one-dimensional and was a great foil for the Queen’s excesses.

I can see that, and I did have a child, but was not what I was thinking…it is different, a wonderful wild energy to be free creative…without necessarily being destructive or possessive Biological imperatives can involve narcissism – but if what is born can be, grow through individual expression that it is originality. And I would say I see there are horrors with pregnancy and childbirth but what I found is that more often “high level” male specialists dish out great fear here…I had an obestetcican that was borderline licentious in his perspective…imperfection in body is lovely and some women… Read more »

Before God was a man, God was a woman. Temples were basically brothels and human sacrifice was considered a part of life. The story of Abraham is the story of how and why a male God was introduced and eventually took over. Abraham prepared his first born son Isaac for sacrifice but was stopped at the last moment by a male God who stated that human sacrifice was to stop. This combined with monotheism meant that there was only room for one ‘personality’ of God. This was foundational to all the Abrahamic branches. In fact the site of the planned… Read more »

Lol, I know this scenario…my pluto conjunct uranus is also opposite mars lol…which is conjunct chiron!

I just try to channel it through more creative means, healing art rather than temper or sex…

And Lilith! Isn’t there a pic of her in Bitchcraft as the personification of Mars conjunct Lilith (may be part of Lilith first house, I don’t have it in front of me). I got some of that. Sag moon & Mars conjunct Lilith.

The bigger question, what sign is her Earth in? I could probably calculate this accurately, if I knew the lunar Longitude and latitude of Olympia Colony and a birth time. Since the Moon did not appear in the sky around the Moon at her birth, it is really only a hypothetical point, like how we calculate Earth in geocentric charts, opposite our Sun. Since the Moon orbits Earth rather than the Sun, I’d calculate her Moon as opposite the Earth.

“What’s your Earth sign?” — the question of the future.

Alouetta

Oh excellent! And what would earth mean at that point in time. Origins, the original egg?

Charles

I’m trying to conceptualize it, it’s tricky shifting to a Lunar frame of reference. The Moon always faces the Earth the same direction, so the Earth sign would depend solely on the Moon’s position in Earth orbit. A Synodic Month is about 29.5 days, so Earth would change signs about every 2.5 days. Your Earth Return would be every 29.5 days. I suppose you could consider a Lunar month as equivalent to an Earth year, except that the Moon is still going around the Sun once per Earth year. But none of that answers your question. I don’t know the… Read more »

Would Cancers, born on the Earth, then be ruled by the Earth?

Jokerman

I meant “born on the Moon”

Charles
Charles

That is a very interesting question. I have been considering non-terrestrial astrology for a while, but it never occurred to me that a planet’s ruler might be displaced because you were born there. Like for example, if you were Aries and born on Mars. There are no answers to these questions because nobody ever asked them before.

Didn’t have a tv growing up. Instead we had books. I used to be fascinated by the Geiger Alien book of my Piscean father. Totally imprinted on Ripley as my femme warrior heroine. Can you believe Alien came out in 1979? I was five! It still looks good today. Ripley’s Astro is perfection. I have a Yemeni-Danish Capricorn Israeli girlfriend who could totally be Ripley. She has Sagg Rising and Aqua Moon. With Moon square Uranus!! Dead ringer for character vibe and resonance. (She also had a terrible relationship with her mother and was an unusual mother herself, though she… Read more »

I love Ripley’s character but why does it have to be so tough? I just cannot fathom the tough medicine she has to swallow…sure its great to be able to fight for one’s rights, for ethics, for your associates even, but what about some emotional nourishment?… This is an extreme picture maybe I cannot get…And I truly endured some serious tough love…but at least my hippy mother was artistic, passionate as well as free and fire powered (mars conjunct pluto leo opposite her ascendant) Lol, I AM moon square uranus, with very early cancer moon to very late degrees virgo… Read more »
