Randall Bell is a fantastic example of career astrology. He is a haunted house broker. If you wanted to sell, say, The Amityville Horror, he would be your guy. But Bell doesn’t use that term; he prefers to call them stigmatized properties. After I read about him in The Hustle today, I reached out for his birth details, because they’re not online. He got straight back to me, a very high-vibe guy for someone so exposed to, well, negative energies.
He’s a Capricorn, with Moon, Jupiter, and Neptune in Scorpio. It makes sense. The massive discounts offered on troubled properties appeal to canny Capricorn. Twenty-five percent is routinely taken off the price of houses that hosted cults, homicides, Mafia hits, and meth labs. But Bell’s company also specializes in neighborhoods affected by hurricanes, terror attacks, and nuclear testing. He appraised the apartments damaged in the Rodney King riots, villages near Bikini Attol and the field Flight 93 crashed into during the September 11 attacks.
If You Had A Condo In East Chernobyl Or A House With Ectoplasm Oozing Out Of The Walls, You’d Call Randall.
If you had a condo in East Chernobyl, tabloid notoriety or a house with ectoplasm oozing out of the walls but still needed to put food on the table/do something practical, you’d call Randall Bell.
You can see how the archetypal Moon in Scorpio interests – crime, espionage and the taboo – blend with enterprising Jupiter and Neptune. “For some reason, I’m able to handle a high level of trauma,” he says. “I look at my whole career as built around helping people through really tough situations.”
He says that every disaster has an emotional side, which people in general always understand and a practical side, which is where few people are equipped or inclined to help. If, for example, a sinkhole opens up in your back garden, you’re going to be inundated by media and gawpers, but who to ask about what it’s going to do to your real estate values? Or who to sue and whether you should bulldoze the place or try to turn it into a theme park?
How apt is this career astrology?
