I often like to profile controversial characters in the news as I find them interesting. These profiles should not be construed as being necessarily supportive of the subject’s politics or actions, but they are a useful tool to demonstrate how astrology works in the real world. For that reason I try to be as neutral as possible although I do have opinions and sometimes they leak through. If you haven’t watched Joe Rogan’s YouTube channel you likely have a very different impression of him than if you have. If all you read is the headlines, you see a crazy man who embraces conspiracy theories and radical ideas. This is certainly a piece of the man, but if you dive into what he has produced as I have, you see a much more nuanced picture.
Joe Rogan was born with the Sun in Leo conjunct expansive Jupiter – a very fortunate placement which virtually ensures success, especially since these planets are in his 10th house of career and vocation. Leo is the sign of the Self – under the influence of Leo we need to be “seen” and recognized, but also, ultimately, to be the best person we can be. Aquarius on the Midheaven, a powerful point of vocation and public expression, denotes a detachment and a willingness to consider all points of view Saturn, planet of hard work and success, forms a harmonious trine to the Sun and Jupiter which helps to facilitate the discipline needed to work towards a goal. The main drive here is for fame and recognition, but there’s more.
