Born Beneath a Self Combusting Sun: Arnold, Bill, Martha, and Monica

With words like “Sun”, “Star”, and “Shine”often used to describe the Solar ruled personality, everything is lit up, out in the open, and on display for all to see. But nothing in the Universe can be that strongly one dimensional all the time nor can anything be so powerfully placed in the positive spectrum without there being some kind of opposing balance or without burning out altogether.

Death & The Maidens – Sylvia Plath, Assia Wevill, and Ted Hughes

Their highly charged romance has been described as “the Romeo and Juliet of the 20th century” and their conjoined artistry has been likened to “a poetic powerhouse rivaled only by Robert and Elizabeth Barrett Browning”. Despite all the literary and poetic accolades heaped upon the two, the relationship between the greatest poets of their Age, Sylvia Plath and Ted Hughes, is made hollow by the nature of the couple’s highly tragic Fate.

To be expected, the marriage between these Fixed sign intellectuals appears to have always been fueled by both the Leo’s and Scorpio’s inherently intense passions but even with that said, your Author must emphasize the following astrological relationship rule:

A marriage between two Fixed Signs is never “easy” by virtue of the varying degree of “challenge” that is constantly present.

And a marriage between two Fixed Signs who are each important in their own individualized right that has no sense of compromise between the two, is undoubtedly doomed.

Roman Polanski: The Ever Elusive Search for Security, Part III

Part II left off after the emergence of a new layer of Hell which Roman Polanski was forced to face, that being Life following the gruesome murders of his wife Sharon Tate and unborn son. As this series has repeatedly shown, the man has been no stranger to horrific tragedy but it must be said the continuity of tragic theme throughout his life is nothing short of astounding when considering his pregnant wife’s murder to that of his pregnant mother’s untimely death in Auschwitz, to even the subject matter of the film he had just finished directing before calamity struck where in “Rosemary’s Baby” a pregnant woman is besieged by the followers of a Satanic cult. This thread of tragic theme is reflected in Polanski’s chart with the most elevated planet being the Moon, the planet of motherhood and pregnancy conjunct the planet of death and anything of cult-like status, Pluto by one degree.

The aspect about the myth of Persephone which I find most fascinating can also be directly applied to the life of Roman Polanski. What binds Persephone to the Underworld is the eating of six seeds which can be interpreted as the innocently pure maiden ingesting the darkness of her captor and it taking hold or in the literal sense takes “seed” to further grow in her psyche. Said another way by being exposed to Hades/Pluto’s violence, lust, and assertion of power, Persephone has the potential for those very same Plutonian expressions at her disposal since she has eaten that which comes from the Lord of the Underworld’s domain. In the same vein, as a helpless child the director had his mother taken from him, followed later by both his wife and helpless unborn child being destroyed, yet when the opportunity arose Mr. Polanski as a 43 year old adult at the time felt the impulsive need to sexually dominate a victim who was herself, a mere child.

Roman Polanski: The Ever Elusive Search for Security, Part II

As with anything possessing key significance within the Universe, Pluto’s conjunction to the Moon has repercussions in both the positive and negative spectrums for Polanski. The primal power created by their conjunction in the positive spectrum enabled the man to survive both his childhood and the War. Yet the Moon being placed next to Pluto produced repercussions deep within the negative spectrum that have held influence over the darkest depths of Polanski’s psyche, causing him to act from a place of pure impulse with no rational thought or moral sense of judgement being applied whenever triggered. All in all the repercussions from both spectrums would indicate that Roman Polanski has existed in a state of inner unrest for most of his life.

Inner unrest that throughout the course of his life would drive him to search for that most elusive treasure which lies beneath the Moon’s domain – the inner peace and fulfilling contentment brought about by emotional security.

Roman Polanski: The Ever Elusive Search for Security, Part I

There are some people in this world whose lives are not to be believed. With a statement of that kind, one immediately assumes a reference is being made to those who are maverick rogues or bold adventurers due to the automatic presumption their lives are THAT exciting and function wholly within the positive spectrum of things.

Not so with Roman Polanski.

Practically from the moment the man entered this plane of existence, he was forced to face horrors so profoundly disturbing, one has a hard time accepting the fact these various layers of Hell were all experienced by the same individual over the course of just his life span.
