If you have not heard of him yet, Colin Kaepernick is a the San Francisco football player (and big star) gathering equal parts applause and outrage for his USA national anthem protests.
“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” Kaepernick told NFL Media in an exclusive interview after the game. “To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”
This is not something that I am going to run by anybody,” he said. “I am not looking for approval. I have to stand up for people that are oppressed. … If they take football away, my endorsements from me, I know that I stood up for what is right.”
FYI he is a Scorpio – but a kind of super-Scorped Scorpio. His Pluto – the Underworld Boss and ruler of Scorpio – is exact conjunct his Scorpio Sun. Venus is also in Scorpio.
Pluto on the Sun makes Kaepernick an Outer Planet Person. This is when you have Uranus, Neptune or Pluto close conjunct the Ascendant, Midheaven, Sun, Moon or Mercury, Venus, Mars. It means you’re tapping into a broader Zeitgeist than just the current culture. This is from my Outer Planet Peeps post a while ago.
“You’re out-there, you’ve got moxy, you’re channelling something other-worldly every time you try to have a relationship, write a letter, get laid, make money etc. You’re both super-ancient and of the future. It takes a while to grow into being an Outer Planet Person…It’s intense, weird and magic.”
And of all the outer planets, Pluto is particularly powerful at the moment – it’s stationing direct at 14 degrees of Capricorn – the degree it’s first hit in February 2015. Think about that if you’re trying to work out which vultures or phoenixes are coming home to roost now.
And Colin Kaepernick – well here he is giving good Pluto on his Twitter.
