And the lion sleeps tonight!! Wellwell well,looky looky here! Young Ted lastwhiteboy to get out of the Sudan alive March 1978 as the Idi Amin rebels killed everybody & blew up everything, hot on my trail!! [excerpt]Lynx photo below posted on Ted’s fb June 12, no caption.
A friend shared this lynx link yesterday, and of course, it elicited an immediate visceral reaction. Moon is currently in Leo, and I have Venus conjunct Jupiter in Leo.
Stranglehold has long been a fave, my first roommate will attest to it – I’ve seen him live covered in skin/tail, he put on a good show. I have seen interviews over the years, Ted is a livewire – intelligent and outspoken – he has a commanding presence.
I managed to watch his tv show a couple of times, (despite not having cable) it was as I expected, wild & crazy, OTT. It always stuck me as odd when people were shocked by Ted’s demeanor. After all, he IS the Motor City Madman. What did they think it/he was going to be like, (presumably) signing a waiver to be on a madman’s survivalist reality show ? Obviously the dude on foot who played “chicken” with a truck envisioned something quite different than what actually happened. I saw that comin’, easily.
I knew Ted is a Sagittarian bow hunter, obviously it stuck with me having bow hunters in my family. Today, I took a closer look at his natal chart. I’ll be honest, I have mixed feelings about Ted, agree with some ideas – others not at all. To use this platform to write a heated knee-jerk response without looking at all the info would put me in the category of this crap journalism, which is not gonna happen. So I will give you the astrological deets and you can make up your own mind about what he says/does.
I will add you might want to google poaching and reality star duped for starters, and of course, Ted’s viewpoints can be found on the link to his official page under top photo.
I will also add that Endangered population deets can always be found on The Red List on the sidebar under conservation. I will directly link vulnerable African Lion here and the NA (Bobcat) Lynx here – also please note dates on reports given in link as well as the date on the top photo caption. Also note that I do not know where the Lynx was killed, I presume North America, but do not know for certain, as he did not provide that info.
Ted is a Sagittarius with Sun conjunct Mercury (combust) opposite late degree Uranus Rx in Gemini. That is the outspoken livewire aspect across communication houses – Sagittarians tend to be blunt; Uranus, radical. Ted is obviously earthy, with Mars (guns) exalted in Capricorn (T. Pluto is bang on Mars at the mo), Saturn in Virgo and Moon and North Node of Destiny in Taurus.
Capricorn Mars (conjunct 6+ orb) Jupiter square Neptune in Libra denotes his hardline approach/outreach via music (Neptune rules guitars, the other string instrument) as well as his stance re: balance/loss and responsible conservation (Saturn/Capricorn) that does not always set well with others (Libra). Mars and Jupiter (in exact) trine to Saturn again is a relentless hardline re: analyzation of use of any and all things. He is known for being very anti-alcohol/drugs, which is obviously unusual in the world of S/D & R&R.
Ted is a catalyst, provoking transformation over the haves/desires what is mine/ours axis of Taurus/Scorpio. Not exactly a surprise, is it ? Moon in Taurus (no deets, no orb) opposes Venus in Scorpio – both of which square focal planet Pluto Rx in Leo. Pluto is death; Leo is life – square the Moon and Venus which are public favor or lack thereof. Note Pluto in Leo is fixed as are the signs of Taurus and Scorpio, he is not changing anytime soon, regardless of what anyone thinks – just saying.
Lastly, Ted has Sagittarius Chiron (wounding/healing/teacher) square Saturn in Virgo indicating restless tension re: philosophies of teaching/hunting and conservation/limits as well as personal responsibilities re: same. These are mutable signs, indicating he will listen – only if you have done your research, know the facts and have a valid argument – otherwise, forget it.

Apologies, the above has run-ons, screwy spacing, have tried fixing to no avail.
Also, tons of Pluto + swearing below NWS.
I’m a bow hunter too. My philosophy is pretty simple boils down to 2 types of people…1.those incredibly unevolved arrogant A-holes unable to appreciate that an animal’s life is NOT theirs to waste…
2. the people who hate no. 1 types…end of story.
I first saw the lynx, then investigated further to only to find the lion.
I did my best to be fair – letting him speak for himself in both photos and paragraph 1 seemed quite enough.
Seems an appropriate place to put an interview w/Kendall Jones discussing conservation hunting that seems to parallel Ted’s viewpoints.
Also adding a fantastic explanation of ‘endangered’ as well as how the Red List works from Discover here.
