We’re approaching peak paranormality as Jupiter and Neptune converge in Pisces. That’s “paranormal” as in awareness of alternative dimensions, unseen – yet tangibly felt – energies, supernatural phenoms, ghosts, enhanced extra-sensory-perception, ley lines – the lot.
It doesn’t include Libran comedians losing their composure at the Oscars – that’s just the hyper-Aquarius/Uranian accelerated culture on top of the fin de siecle feel of Pluto at the end of Capricorn. I wasn’t going to mention Will Smith as I’m very Libra-Moon about it, but as people are asking, here are my thoughts.
I did not even know the Academy Awards were on. In fact, I was watching Vladimir Putin serenading Sharon Stone with Blueberry Hill and wondering if someone had deep-faked them into a David Lynch vignette. Then my daughter burst in excitedly to say that Will Smith had just hit Chris Rock on stage at the Oscars.
Mars Midheaven Attacks
“It will be complete bullshit,” I said with all the gravitas of recent months spent scrolling down the news feed saying ‘what the fuq?’ every five seconds and wondering if the scientists who thought the Large Hadron Particle Collider could open up parallel universes were correct. “Deepfaked, staged, scripted, a promotion for something…who’s the major sponsor?”
Actually, this year’s Oscars were sponsored by a pharmaceutical company, and Will Smith was indignant because Chris Rock made a quip that drew attention to his wife Jada Pinkett-Smith’s auto-immune alopecia. (I wrote about the astro links between the two in The Infinity Marriage if you are interested.) But the alopecia drug from the company in question is nowhere near marketing yet – if it were, you could consider the possibility of a psy-ops P.R. stunt, but no, it seemed authentic.
Mars was crossing Smith’s Midheaven at the time – the basic textbook definition of this would be a public stoush: Mars = assertion or aggro, and the Midheaven is where your life intersects with the public. Mars was also on Chris Rock’s Sun, and it was Jada Pinkett-Smith’s Mars Return that night. Chris Rock (an Aquarian) and Will Smith are both Mars in Virgo.
Haute Mars or Low Mars?
Opinion is divided between whether Will Smith was doing haute Mars or low Mars: (1) That he was bravely defending his wife against an unfair slight about a condition that she could not help, in the context of misogyny against black women, and (2) That he laughed at the joke before flipping and losing control, suggesting that he may have some underlying issues to address.
Both are valid, but if even one drunken heckler king-hits a comedian because they find a joke offensive, everyone will reference Will Smith. He has been an A-lister since Independence Day came out in 1996, but this action was more like an unknown trying to get a meme up than a major star. He has made the studios so much money that they will apparently greenlight more or less anything he pitches, and he has enough clout to confront Rock with something more substantial than assault and heckling.
Mars Now – Pluto Soon
Mars sped by his Midheaven real fast, but Mars in Aquarius now is prepaving the Pluto in Aquarius terrain. Smith also has Saturn squaring his natal Moon-Neptune all year, a gnarly little grinch of a transit that could really be fuqing with his artistic flow. Pluto is squaring his Mercury and Venus until 2024, a difficult influence if you are famously in an open marriage. Pluto squares to Venus can evoke chthonic emotions and possessiveness, while Pluto-Mercury squares raise the need for authentic self-expression.
The sledge itself wasn’t that bad – Demi Moore’s peak-body G.I. Jane character may have been cheesy, but she was hot – but was it one alopecia joke too many? Or, think about this, could the acting-out have been a weird status statement? If a guest of less caliber had done it, they would have been escorted out by security. There is talk of stripping him of his award, but that would be ridiculous – Harvey Weinstein still has his.
Something further will emerge around this incident and, most likely between April 3 and 6, the Mars-Saturn conjunction.
In the meantime, what do you think? (No snark.) And how are you finding the paranormality? Have you noticed an altered consciousness even if you’re not experiencing overt phenomena? If so, it’s about to become more apparent.
