Uma Thurman – Regulus Rising

Filed in Taurus

Recently, i was saying that Regulus moving into Virgo – after centuries in Leo – was a transition from the Age of Kings to the Age of Queens.  Uma Thurman, whose interview in the New York Times blew my mind, is two degrees of Virgo Rising.  She has Regulus Rising.

I currently have Pluto on my Lilith so this sort of material is a lightning rod straight into inaccessible parts of my psyche so maybe it is just me but…Thoughts?

I just joined the site and reading through some old blogs, and am finding this very interesting. For my part, I recently looked at Uma’s chart because she also had Algol dead on her midheaven. And it was in fact my investigation of ‘The Medusa’s Head’ that lead me to this site, where I was overwhelmed to find a positive expression of the medusa archetype. And reading the NY TImes article I can’t help but see a bevy of parallels to the Medusa-Perseus myth. Uma also had Mars fairly close to Aldebaran and it strikes me that film stars, the… Read more »

I realise I’m late to the party and the blog likes to move on quick … but I’ve been out of the loop. So without mincing words, wtf is Regulus???

Ok I know a fixed star, whatever THAT means. Is it like some immovable immutable thing? Like bacon?

Mine is natally 4th house Leo which is also my south node. Just shifting to Virgo now. What can I say? My entire internal landscape has shifted and so have behavioural patterns that I thought I’d go to the grave with.

ps. Uma’s comment about mislabelling abuse for love is poignant and pertinent for me right now. Some part of me is tired of being shovelled up shit sandwiches and calling them fucking chargrilled, truffle-infused gourmet burgers when it comes to relationships.

And what about the woman who has suicided stemming from all of this?
That is desperately sad.
And the ones who have been silenced because they were murdered?

Tarantino while perhaps not a ‘bad’ guy, (necessarily), proved to her/us how disposable a woman is- i.e, literally. There’s always another woman isn’t there? And they’re always the same with only cosmetic differences aren’t they?

(irony alert)

I’ve been trying to tell women this shit forever. I have no idea what to do about it other than prove the bastards, weak, ineffectual ridiculous and WRONG.
I do not, btw, hate men.

I believe Uma grew up being constantly deified or objectified and not treated as a human, starting with her father calling her a goddess, left to her own devices as an underage model and raped at 16. She spent her life seeking validation and being placed on a pedestal by people who projected things onto her, used her and caused her hurt. And if it’s true that she dated Quentin in 2014, she was emotionally manipulated into dating her abuser. I didn’t like the part about how she assumed she would no longer be assaulted by Weinstein because she had… Read more »

This is beyond the ‘whose top lobster?’, ‘ who outed who first’, fucked up competition crap that subjugated our humanity to slave mentality. This is our human fucked up situation and goes straight to the goolies, ovaries, gut sucker punch style. Any strong woman over 30 who has not experienced this kind of male power trip is either playing the superior game, truly lucky, or hasn’t been paying attention. Reading this made me want to punch on.

The X factor here and in many of these scenarios to me is the karmic wheel. I have little doubt about it’s importance in every step of our lives. On my first visit to Jerusalem as a teen I was struck by the garb of a chasidic sect that lived there. What struck me was that it was 42 degrees Celsius and these guys were wearing massive fur hats. I asked someone why they wore these Arctic style hats which must have been extremely uncomfortable. The story goes that 200 years earlier in Eastern Europe Jews were rounded up and… Read more »

Ah, that makes so much sense that those Per perpetrators would incarnate to suffer those hats. I remember I think Denise Linn talking about the Pilgrim parents of the 50’s raising the Native American souls who became the 60’s rebels. How furious and distraught they were at their kid’s behaviour.
But what a horrifying story re the origin of the hats. Mad.

Great points to ponder on. And yes, forgiveness at some point is crucial. That takes a level of seeing beyond whats in front of us and is usually attained after much time. Sadly, a lot of times as humans, we cannot really “see” what we are unaware of, even if it is parading in front of our very eyes and ears. Thats the funny thing about perception. We’re limited only to what we already know. This is not about intelligence, its about awareness. No human knows about every single thing that exists, there is always something to learn. Ants that… Read more »

Thanks x You’ve understood my point. That forgiveness is not just a higher path, it’s a life hack that works on all levels of our lives. It’s terribly hard to integrate into our psyche because revenge and holding grudges always feels like a safer more secure stance. Of course it isn’t, it just drags us into repeating the pain and ties us to the people who hurt us in the first place. Yes, our vision is limited but many wise souls have trodden similar paths as ours and this message of how to break the bonds of karma is at… Read more »

I agree with all of this david and if my earlier comments are rankling , you need to understand that I am not criticizing the principle of forgiveness, so a sum sign isn’t exactly credentials but as a Pisces, it’s kind of what I do, although having been directly confronting personal experiences of types of childhood abuse lately, it’s a very different set of … Processes. I have been on the receiving end of bullying, abuse, harassment, assault, as a very young girl and into adulthood. And it’s coloured my view of humanity and human relationships more than I ever… Read more »

Forgiveness doesn’t abstain the perpetrator from guilt, punishment or justice. It’s about you and your well being. I don’t see it in the ‘holy’ way you describe. I see it more like a medicine. The lesions on your being need to be cauterized before they grow any further. More than the need to understand the medicine. The energy is trapped right now, looping between you and those that harmed you. By cutting each loop surgically we release ourselves. Our body and mind recover are free then to create positive loops. I’m a software developer not a rabbi. Forgiveness is like… Read more »

How come you’re not a 10, sugar? 🙂

Understand that Imnot trying to put you in a box or label you. I get it. But sometimes I sniff a blind spot, although this could be your mercury in Aries vibe, but I’ll reserve judgement LOL.
I value your willingness to engage, because my desire to debate and tear apart ideas or views is driven from principle not because I want to personally attack someone. My reception probably depends how strongly identified a person is with their views or beliefs.
(How I approach my own experiences is a work in progress.)

And now a Tarantino interview with Howard Stern from 2003 has surfaced, according to news reports, where he defends Roman Polanski. Apparently, having sex with a 13 year old is OK really.

I have ALWAYS loved Uma since I saw her in Gattaca when I was a teenager. Thought she was the most beautiful woman ever and it surprised me that she thought she was ugly as a teenager because she is unconventional. She’s one of those faces like Kate Moss that I think women find glamorous and gorgeous but men don’t go gaga over because she’s less “sexy”, more alien goddess. The stories that have come out of Weinstein-gate are truly harrowing. I am glad Uma finally felt ready to speak and that she told the truth about Tarantino too. These… Read more »

What stunned me about Uma Thurman’s interview were her comments about Tarantino’s behaviour and how he undertook some of the – particularly disturbing – screen action, such as spitting in her face and throttling her.
Given his financial reliance on Miramax to make his films, it seems to me that Tarantino simply affirmed his reliance to the boys club. And we know what they do to women who don’t play by their rules.

But Algol conj HER Sun – suddenly makes sense why she felt the need to be in such fuqing dark movies full of the worst of human beings, and of the “partnership” with Tarantino.

Last few sentences in the article re cruelty being confused for love gave me goosebumps. I have become more aware re issues of family of origin recently. Right now Im just grateful that I am alive and not more damaged than I am. And I thank God(dess) for the resilient buoyancy of my Sagg sun and detached Aqua moon as they have served me so well in my circumstances. Ive worn my troubles lightly. A lot of people who know me really have no idea, not necessarily because I havent tried telling them but through their own denial. Or maybe… Read more »

Her Mercury/MC on Algol (and trined by Pluto in the first) are more in line with this, I think. Medusa’s revenge! Her moon in late Aqua is surely getting zapped in this eclipse zone, as well. She also has Sun conjunct Saturn at the top of her chart (9th) in early Taurus, which is getting bolstered by the New Earth vibe, for sure. Not sure where her Lilith is, but transiting Lilith is supporting her Toro energies in a big (good) way.

Recently I’ve had this recurring dream of cleaning out a hoarder’s house. There’s a sense that the house will be a beautiful home once it’s cleared and restored. And the things that I’m taking out—stacks of old papers and magazines, boxes of unused cookware, pet beds still wrapped in plastic—can all be recycled or passed on to people who need them. And there’s a ton of cleaning that’ll need to happen to make things livable. I don’t know if it’s this ongoing uncovering of abuse and misogyny that’s been triggering this dream. But the sense I get is that there… Read more »

Thank you, I am horrified to read any of it. I have 4 degrees Virgo rising, Jupiter conjunct at 2 degrees (12th) sextile Moon 10th, and it is opposite Mercury rx 6th. I had an experience with a cult like group, spiritual yes, however the men seemed to be very hierarchical, the women very few, and I think traditional ideas prevented any equality – some sexual innuendo seemed to debase decent sharing of esoteric concepts. I am really disappointed that I am estranged more for reasons of gender than for valid concerns on my commitment – my demonstrated ability and… Read more »

I think you might like the book Pilgrims Progress. An old book with an eternal message. On the journey back to godhead there are many side paths and rest stops. Most of us get comfortable at one of the rest stops, waylaid. Whatever spiritual system one uses to learn the way, whichever motel or resort one is a guest in, keep in mind it is only a rest stop. The road that leads us to our ultimate truth is unique to us and we will know it when we are on it. Enjoy your time in your current stay, take… Read more »

Thank you. I will look into this text. Really is more about a modern and expanding rival institution’s position being protected, against an older more underground sect with an ancient methodology – purist approach – than an individual’s right. Unfortunately I am between, as I left one to move to the other, but with consequences. Yes, Isis- pluto addresses the business of seeking to be whole, apparently not based on others concepts of this, but a self-route which I suspect your recommended book may offer insights for. There is also another question or matter, not confined to any gender binary,… Read more »

Have no doubt that it is. At some level all of our intentions are corrupt or misguided. When one talks about surrender to Shen the first elements to be discarded are our own intentions. We have no need for them if we are truly allowing ourselves to be guided. Shens intentions for us are unknowable and in my experience superior to our own. We view the world like a torch light scanning a dark room. Limited and easily mistaken. Surrender all intention and feel how quickly Shens becomes evident.

Agreed, Uma is awesome, always liked her a lot, and that is a great article, saw it last week in someone’s FB post in relation to the Aziz Ansari case. This article perfectly describes the ever-present underlying dynamic that is just taken as a given, like, ‘this is just the way things are’. These dynamics that are thought of as tacit are the most dangerous underpinnings of patriarchal society and need to be brought to light, purged, and healed.

I too, was blown away by this interview. It made me feel sick how she was treated and she was at the top of her game. I wish I could put how I feel about this into astrological context but, unfortunately, I lack the knowledge. Though, I felt her very intensely throughout the whole interview.

But what does Regulus do when it’s conjunct your rising?
I am 8° Virgo Rising.
As for Uma interview: I think she’s truly re-grounding (shouldn’t be hard for a Taurus with Virgo rising :-)) herself.
Also the “I won’t put up with this crap anymore” she did in that interview really sounded like Saturn in Cap (which is trine her rising I think).
I’m loving this earth era already. I just want to use it to get what I have always wanted in my life: a warm and happy family.
