Tea Party

The Astrology of Glenn Beck

Glenn Beck birthchartGlenn Beck has emerged from a minor and cartoonish character of conservative and religious unrest to become a force to be reckoned with in the Republican party. Beginning with the Tea Party rallies last year, he has built a movement that culminated this weekend with a crowd of 100,000 people in Washington at the Lincoln Memorial, to restore America’s honor and return it to the ideals on which the United States was founded.

Beck talks a lot about the Bible in his speeches – about Moses and Jesus and the founding fathers. (Beck, a Mormon, seems fascinated with the idea that  the book of Deuteronomy in the Bible (in which the Ten Commandments are found) was  instrumental to the development of the ideals of the Founding Fathers to which we must return. Much of this is mythology, but it’s worth noting that Deuteronomy is one of the most violent and vindictive books in the Bible, which is no small feat. There are many threats against the enemies of the Israelites, but also against the Israelites themselves who disobey the Commandments. It’s safe to say that religion is crucial to Beck’s world view, and a return of America to the conservative religious values of the mid-twentieth century.

Glenn Beck (born February 10, 1964, Everett WA, time unknown) was born when the Sun was in Aquarius, the sign of the rational thinker with radical new ideas. But his Sun is in a triple conjunction that includes Saturn and Mars as well. The Mars influence energizes him but also provides frustration – it can be difficult to focus one’s energies. The Saturn influences puts the brakes on and creates blocks and disappointments, and also suggests a deep loneliness […]

Pluto in Capricorn: Death to the Corporation

See below for update on the chart of the shooter.

I’m a little late on this subject because I was out all day yesterday preparing for a lecture so I missed the big news event: the crash of a private plane into an IRS building by Andrew Joseph Stack.  I’m hunting hard for a birth date for him and will post a character analysis as soon as that becomes available.

I did find a cache of the pilot’s online diatribe at the Smoking Gun.  Some Tea Partiers are acclaiming Stack as the hero of their cause, but they are missing the point.  Stack’s diatribe appears to favor communism over capitalism when he says “Capitalism: From each according to his gullibility, to each according to his greed.

Pluto’s entry into Capricorn, as we have been discussing over the past two years, is indicative of destruction and transformation (Pluto) of the foundational structures of our society (Capricorn).  Chiron and Neptune are still nearly exactly conjunct, bring up the anxiety and emotional wounds (Chiron) as well as creating potential delusion (Neptune).  I’ll know more when I have a birthtime, but it appears that the Chiron/Neptune conjunction was likely nearly exactly opposite Pluto in his own chart, activating a deep need within him to make some kind of permanent change.

I’d also like to reiterate something I’ve been saying for quite some time – that this kind of “lone wolf” act is what we have to look forward to when Uranus (radical revolutionary behavior) enters Aries (warfare and aggression) and begins to demand justice.

In other news…I’ve also been looking at the Tea Party phenomenon as being illustrative of the opposition between Saturn (conservative status quo) and Uranus (radical change and new ideas), but it’s starting to look more […]
