Rupert Murdoch

Media mogul Rupert Murdoch is under the spotlight because of the phone hacking which forced him to shut down his popular “News Of The World” paper. This guy is ranked 13th most powerful man in the world and the 117th richest. Now there are calls for him to scrap his takeover bid for BskyB. As head of News International Murdoch is also responsible for “The Sun” and “The Sunday Times” newspapers, which are also now implicated in yet more hacking, this time with ex Premier Gordon Brown.

It seems more and more revelations are coming out of the woodwork. Looks like Murdoch is fast becoming the mighty Orion I mentioned in an earlier post, the large corporation brought down by the little man. The mere Scorpion. Interestingly Murdoch has his Moon on LESATH, the very stinger in the Scorpion, right where the Lunar eclipse was on June the 15th just a month ago! So the next 5 months for him will be crucial.

His Moon is in the 12th house of self-undoing so has he stung himself in the foot? Transiting Saturn is semi-sextiling his MC on ZOSMA, victim or Savior? I doubt a man this powerful will let himself become the victim of this scandal. What does his chart say, can he survive this? I think he is smart enough to duck and dive this one when you look at his stars.

Moon on LESATH “With Moon here at birth native will be conceited, wealthy, luxurious, kind-hearted, happy and resolute.” [1]. But also “Its qualities in the horoscope are very much those of a probing, sharp intellect and incisive wit, every bit as damaging as a knife to its opponent”.[2] This describes very much the effect of the media he owns, they can bring down a government with a few choice headlines. Rapier wit indeed.

His immense power is obviously shown in this Sun trine/sextile the Saturn/Pluto opposition. His Sun is part of a secretive stellium all hiding in the 4th. Mercury is in there too, the media planet is near enough trine his Pluto which is great for an investigative journalist and it is on ANKAA in the Phoenix “It is said to give a pioneering disposition, ambition and power, together with a long life and lasting fame.” [3]  Looks like he could literally rise like a Phoenix from the flames. His Lilith is also on ANKAA too, much closer and on the IC making it powerful and giving him the ability to spellbind and spin his way out of this hole.

What is interesting is his Ceres opposition Uranus, which seems to describe fluctuating fortunes. Ceres up in the 10th could show his wealth and it is square Jupiter, so it might be describing his need to acquire more and more commodities. This Ceres is on our friend ALGORAB the crow. The tricky crow a perfect description for the shifty journalist and hack . Saturn is fast approaching this scavenging Ceres which is also conjunct the South Node. Some old karma needs paying back there I think.

But the big one for Rupert Murdoch is Pluto transiting his ascendant. He had this exact back in November last year. Now his chart is rated B in Astrodatabank, so it may well be the case that his AC is actually more like 4º instead of 2º degs Capricorn in which case it would be in effect now.

Jamie wrote “Pluto can be extreme in transit, especially to such a personal point as the Ascendant. Therefore changes which occur in life now can reflect this through an obsessive drive to succeed or to retreat into a hermit phase of reflection.” Today ironically as he arrives in the Uk to try and sort out this mess, “The Sun” is transiting his natal Pluto, which happens to be on CASTOR in Gemini, the journalists star.

  1. Here is the Sag chart showing transits for the last day in May 2000. During this time a number of planets transited through his 6th house while t.Pluto and Chiron were sandwiching his correct Asc at 13SAG28. This situation in his life and the transits both speak clearly of health matters that go straight to the power center within his body. As stated clearly in a common reference, The Rulership Book by Rex Bills, the body is ruled by the 1st house and regeneration of it is ruled by Pluto. Pluto also rules the prostate.

    • Yup… I bet you spent all night twiddling your little red beard over this one!
      Your soul may have entered your body by some algorithmic programme which suits droids. Further up the food chain it works differently!
      Better luck on the next round.
      Was Incarn nicked from Tad Mann’s system? Its a lot older than Incarn?

      • Incarn astrology was defined in publication in the 1990s and early 2000s by John Willner who died in Dec 2004, and by his benefactor/mentor, Cedric Lamont no later than the 1940s (American Astrology magazine). So, no, Tadd Mann or his work are not the basis of Incarn astrology. However, you have gotten my curiosity up.

        • Tadd Mann’s life time cycle astrology and software is a synthesis of many different factors and has nothing to do with Incarn astrology or its formulas.

        • From the Divine plot – Astrology, Reincarnation Cosmology and History by A. T. (Tad) Mann.

          (Mann uses logarithms, a totally different function and more subtle than algorithms but computes conception.)

          “a lifetime can be subdivided using a logarithmic scale to the base ten with the lunar month unit… the intermediate divisions occur at ten lunar months after conception…
          when the logarithmically graded time scale is wrapped around a circle, conception coincides with death. … at conception the soul enters the space time continuum and the spiraling solar system… resonates with the genetic code as derived from its morphogenic fields …. the pattern activated at conception … determines the form of life in time…
          … the patterns and sub patterns of life may be reconstructed using the log time scale…

          Life Time Astrology cycles from conception at the 9th house cusp around to death, also at the same point and an overlap octave where the prototype of the transpersonal realm is gestation … and so on.

          I don’t use his system but it does interest me in some aspects. It deserves scrutiny.

          Without quoting the whole book – its probably out of print now, it is very interesting and his knowledge extensive. He was an architect an mathematician, also an artist. You should contact him, maybe there is an over lap between his system and Incarn? A complimentary area? He is very personable, has vast experience and some unique methods. I knew him very well in London through the 80s and nineties. He now lives in NY I think and has a website. He loves to discuss his work. Get in touch with him.

          To my way of seeing things, an algorithm is purely a device of maths and computer science. Algorithms are used for computer data processing and automated reasoning.
          They are often used very poorly. The story of The Hockey Stick and Global warming models is an example. This Al Gore-ithm was supposed to prove global warming. However, it could equally be applied to a phone book and get the same results. So I remain unconvinced about the value in astrology.
          How do you apply an algorithm to the bardo state between incarnations? Or indeed the outer force which dictates when the baby is born as it is now known it is not the mother’s body which dictates this. And what is this force anyway that it can be algorithmically processed?

          Since the soul is “eternal” (until perhaps returning into the monad before the unified field of only possibility), at what “point” would you apply an algorithm to this process of continual incarnation? Each soul is subject to a whole raft of difference experiences at differing times and pace with apparently differing times between incarnations, I don’t see how an algorithm can be applied… but if the application comes as a by product of computing then I am not surprised its being touted since a whole generation of the herd was put here just to get us all using computers. As a result, many disciplines have been modified to be mere data processing studies. Psychology is now such an example. But that is another story… of the industrialised masucline mindset turning a feminine art into a system.
          Finally on this, if you must apply an algorithm would it accommodate the idea of three permanent atoms (as per Bailey/DK/Theosophy) which are the three which are consistent from the first differentiation of the monad (spark, if you like) which then becomes the soul?
          There are probably too many variants for one algorithm to work.

          Aren’t you noticing how the computerisation of humanity is selling us short? Or are you content to be a number in a soul crunching system?

          Rgds Murdoch and cancer and rectification etc – in the lives of some, their biggest test is illness and maybe cancer/treatment can be used in rectification. However, not all souls incarnate at anyone time are on the same level of the game. Running a global news empire and influencing so many people’s minds has got to be a more intrinsic factor to a soul purpose than a slow growing illness which is common to men?
          Can you fix a date for the incarnation of the first cancerous cell in a body? Surely that would have to be the only way to use cancer as a point for rectification?

          You might consider the influence of Pisces in Murdoch’s chart and Bin Laden’s. Murdoch shows Sun, Mercury and Part of Fortune in Pisces, BIn Laden had Sun Lilith Venus Mercury in Pisces. Marina could doubtless furnish many fixed stars at play too – my point is that both men were able to influence millions through insidious ways, very Piscean, (whatever your view on 9/11) at a collective unconscious level. One had Cancer, the other was ill all his life with low blood pressure. Neither illness is really relevant to their achievements.
