Roy Batty Was Sun Conjunct Pluto

Roy Batty

Blade Runner’s Roy Batty is a cult character, a rogue replicant mercenary with a poetic consciousness and appreciation for metaphysics. His storyline, while not central to the narrative, showed that the replicants had developed not just emotions but a soul. And in fact, if reincarnation is real, why would a soul be unable to transmigrate into a replicant?

Rutger Hauer’s portrayal of him was magnificent, particularly the ‘tears in the rain’ monologue. Batty saves the life of Harrison Ford’s private investigator character, despite the knowledge that Deckard was there to neutralize him.

I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe.

Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion.

I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate.

All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.

Time to die.

And Roy Batty has a birth date and hence a birth chart. Of course, he is a Sun conjunct Pluto person. Such people are anti-fragile and brave beyond belief. They’re extremophiles, thriving in circumstances that would be too intense for others. He has Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius and Venus conjunct Saturn square Neptune. He is also Mars in Scorpio, a super Plutonic Mars placement, one that forces every iota of spiritual awareness through their every action.

Frankly, I would have been thrilled if Roy Batty had survived that book/film and won the replicant revolution.

My all time favourite film. I prefer the original with voice over. I went to see it the first time I went out after my daughter was born..visually like nothing I had seen before..and so beautiful- the set where he interviews the url who does not know she is a replicant for example with the man made owl..the scene where the pleasure model is killed (pris ) and that sound track by Vangelis..incredible. So Plutonic


the girl not url


rutgher hauer .. enough said … perfect for this role


typo Rutger Hauer 🙂

We’re all a bit Roy at the moment.


Oh I love this film so much! I did an assignment on it in art school looking at it through the lens of the homoerotic gaze. Once you start looking, you will be amazed at how many glory holes there are.
Poor Roy 🙁


I thought the roboerotic angle was pretty interesting. Didn’t notice any glory holes ? Though a well set up robo glory hole has potential 🙂




I have never ever seen Bladerunner. So I cannot comment but I can go watch it…
I’ll be back…
Isn’t that another sic fi type film??


I recently did a lecture on Blade Runner in relation to Theme and Subtext in script-writing. There is no better film for it to my mind, regardless of how many versions have been released. I threw in some German philosophy for good measure, and made a comparison of it to Waiting for Godot, because, you know, why not? After, a student came up to me and said, ‘Wow loved your lecture, but honestly, death, existentialism and the meaning of God before 11am? Couldn’t you have at least waited until my morning coffee, or better still, a drink?’ Bless. It is… Read more »


Omg? Death existentialism and the meaning of God is like perfect breakfast conversation. Not even joking. German philosophers too no worries. Can I drop in to your classes? The technologised body, biopolitics, law and rights applied to not specificially human entities is becoming this gigantically fascinating topic for me recently. (Mind you we haven’t got it right even for our most helpful domestic animals let alone half the human race so I doubt we’d privilege cyborgs unless they can threaten us) I even had a dream about this and it was like the opening scene to a film.. so interesting


Man what a way to start the day! I would so love to go to University again. I studied film in the late 90’s and I just can’t imagine how cool your course would be post the advent of the internet! Can I breakfast with you and Pi? Short stack with death and existentialism please with a dollop of German philosophy, yum!


Can I please come to your class and talk, film such as Blade Runner, existentialism, death, love, astrology, all thing spiritual and intangible and all of the legacies prevailing the brilliant Phillip K Dick (?) and how hot Rutger and Harrison were.
I’ll bring coffee.


Wow. The inception date of Roy Batty is the last time I saw the multi-Saggo guy I’ve had a karmic something with. Even the way we got together that night was a karmic. His Scorp Venus on my Sun.

Meh. Can’t get sucked into all that again.
All this karmic bullshit is exhausting. Give me reality any day! Says my Cap Asc.

A sequel! Wow, they’re doing sequels to errrthing these days.

Make some new content people!

I’m a huge fan too Mystic but gutted they’re doing a sequel. No director could ever do the original justice. I predict the sequel will be a massive flop!

I hope it doesn’t turn out like the alien prequel…


Yes, the Bladerunner story is so prophetic. As Homo sapiens consider establishing bases on Mars they will soon realise that homo sapiens aren’t up to it.
No doubt a genetically modified being will be developed that will be able to do the job. Which makes you think that if a bunch of chimps can achieve interplanetary seeding without ‘God’ then is this how we got here ? Where are our ‘seeders’ ?
Question is, are we up for the moral consequences of this type of activity ?
Probably not.


Omg, I watched Prometheus last night..
I don’t know if many species are up for that challenge.
Even with good intentions.


A lack of awareness of /capacity to evaluate moral consequences has never stopped us from trying unusual things in the past, I’d say


Absolutely … I think HG Wells War of the Worlds pointed out quite succinctly that organic life is highly attuned and adapted to its environment. Down to the bacteria … you ain’t got the immunity? No matter what technology you have, you will not survive in a foreign environment. And that includes us. The bone density lost by astronauts who have spent any time in space is enough to prove that the human body is not up to any kind of deep space travel. Robots, cyborgs and genetically hardened beings are the only solution if we really want to explore… Read more »


Do replicants age? Isn’t that the idea of a robot, that they remain the same? Or do organic type robots age?

We had no tv growing up but I somehow managed to see this film 583 times as my father loved it.
But at this point he would start swearing at how cheesy the speech was, which kind of ruined it for me.

Very cool but I did not know that he was created this year. That is disturbing and I hope not prophetic. 😉


These ones didn’t age but they were programmed to shut down after 4 years or something so as to not become too uppity. This was Roy batty’s cross to bear in the film, although he had a less significant role in the book..


A 70-something aged replicant changes the story line considerably then. Sorry hot Rutger!
I hope the new director does Ridley Scott proud. Jeunet did not improve the Alien series, which I was so disappointed by as I liked the concepts.
Can’t wait for the sequel to Prometheus which was cool and full of rich symbolism. The world may go to pot next year but it looks like cinema will be awesome!
Should I read the book Pi?


Hello! Of course, darlinl kx
