Inflammatory Leo

Jenny Holzer

You can see Jenny Holzer’s Mercury Pluto conjunction in every single word. She’s got the classic Mercury-Pluto interest in sex, power, classified information, and taboo topics.

Jenny Holzer is a triple Leo – she has Sun, Mercury, and Pluto in the sign of the Lion.  If you’re born with this much Leo, you’ve got the psyche of an artist. And, if your Mercury is next to Change God Pluto, then you’re driven to be an intense, profound and provocative communicator.  She’s doing her astrology brilliantly.

From her Wiki – I have bolded the bits that are peak Mercury-Pluto conjunction.

“As of 2010, Holzer’s work has been focused on government documents, concerning Iraq and the Middle East. Using texts from a much different context, more recent projects have involved the use of redacted government documents, and passages from declassified U.S. Army documents from the war in Iraq. For example, a large LED work presents excerpts from the minutes of interrogations of American soldiers accused of committing human rights violations and war crimes in Abu Ghraib prison — making what was once secret, public.

 

Holzer’s work often speaks of violence, oppression, sexuality, feminism, power, war and death; and the artist often utilizes the rhetoric of modern information systems to address the politics of discourse. Her main concern is to enlighten, bringing to light something thought in silence and meant to remain hidden.”

Subvert all the things!! *running around, waving arms*

My Aqua 12th Lilith is wired to my Scorpio 8th Sun-Venus, & I’m relishing Lilith’s current transit thru Pluto’s house! Stealth female metaphysical warrior energy YES. Conjunctions, squares, but no opposition. No opposition!

Keep going: there’s still time!

Pluto-Sun in Leo- smoulders and you get either amazing creativity- haute- or seething rage against The System- and societal slights taken personally. My take on 20 plus years with Leo Sun Cazimi Pluto partner-

Parents both Leo Moons. Leo needs a Great Cause. Post WWII suburbia, holding down 9-5 -or not during early 1950s recession- and women squeezed back into dreary domestic life- not a great script for Leos.

Fire need tending/boundaries. And best have a water bucket handy.

I appreciate this – her energy and anger.
‘Is liberation dangerous? Only when overdue.’ Then all that rage caused by the slow violence of poverty and domination boils over, scalding everyone.

I was at a spiritual service yesterday (Heartflow, Daylesford) where it was said that we are born angry. There is something very primal in this. As spiritual beings this earthly element is a tough element to work with, once we are over all the yummy sensuality. I am goping to stop or I might start to ramble.

I saw some text of hers in a work recently,

DIE FAST AND QUIET WHEN THEY TORTURE YOU OR LIVE SO LONG THAT THEY ARE ASHAMED TO HURT YOU ANY MORE.

Satisfies some part of me immensely. Maybe my lilith.

Whenever I channel my inflammatory inner lioness (Sun in Leo opposition Lilith & square Chiron) I end up hurting my Pluto moon. So as much as I get this rage and anguish I am wary of it. Subjective reality is not separate to objective reality, right? Like the woman who dreamed of a Chinese hospital she worked in in ruins. Her psych sent her back the US saying that her story told him she was feeling a loss of her identity. She did and became happier. He also had her draw a picture of the hospital. Two years later a… Read more »

Thanks, it’s good in theory! Still, I have a Scorpio Moon, so smooth sailing it isn’t, 🙂 . Neptune is also square my Mars, 😯

Oh my goodness, I loved all that, it is the anarchists’ manifesto, if such a thing were to exist.

Yeah, I’d say she is pretty pissed off 🙂 I totally understand the sentiment, the grief. The problem is identifying who or what is the enemy. Is her enemy my enemy ? Will burning down the current fabric of society lead to a better one ? Who will survive this inferno, which people deserve to survive ? Who decides how much collateral damage is acceptable ? We must move on from the concept of destroying ‘the other’ as a way of solving our problems. The war, the destruction needs to go on within each of us. A personal Armageddon of… Read more »
