ONE

Julian Lennon

(edit. bulk of this post originally posted 6.1.12.)*

I have loved Julian since Valotte, have written about him here at least twice before, but only just today* looked at his natal chart.  Julian recently released Everything Changes, his first album since 1998.  He is active in charity work including his own White Feather Foundation (named for something his father told him), he produced Whaledreamers, a doco about an aboriginal tribe in Australia and its special relationship to whales. (wiki)
My library has it, love it !  He has been making music and creating for 30+ years, if you want to start from the beginning, go to Hey Jules for all sorts of groovy backstories.

Timothy White Photography

While snapping photos during a surprise visit on his brother (pictured above) Sean’s 2007 tour, Julian began to take photography more seriously.  With encouragement from his friend, photographer Timothy White (see link above), Julian had his first, highly successful photography exhibition “Timeless” in NYC in 2010.


Timeless, (above) was taken while on tour with Sean.  It most definitely speaks to my 12th house Sag Mars. . .traveling the open road at night. Obviously it speaks to Julian’s 12th house Aries/Jupiter as well.  I love it !

I had to include Blue Moon, (below), yet another favorite of mine which had me dreaming in cerulean blue for several nights. Julian’s landscapes, particularly the clouds (Neptune rules, angular in 7th, strong) feel like gentle tides which build to a roar of surf – heady heartfelt moments of insight into our Mother Earth…powerfully, quietly taking care of business.

Prints of Julian’s collections are available here.

Love this pic of Julian below  – composition, color + pop in a couple of mystical glyphs  on a handsome fella and we’re good, people.

Rune: (Birch) Berkano, stillness, sanctuary, strength via rebirth – earth goddess
Jupiter: exploration, enthusiasm, optimism, truth, luck and growth

Some wingnut tried to rise my ire a coon’s age ago about Julian’s astro.  I knew the minute I saw this pic he already knew his score.**  Also, for the nutters out there  pitching fits and smacking the term ‘illuminati’ (means enlightened, not the evol ) on everything  symbolic, get a library card, try reading a few books please and thank you.

Julian is Aries Sun, born under a gibbous (nearly full; strong) Libra Moon.  Exalted Aries Sun opposite Libra Moon is ego self vs the public persona (Moon).  The desire for perfection, and the expectation of culmination must be balanced with the realization that compromise and co-operation is the way to highest potential.  Strength through working and playing well with others is key.

Being at odds with how the public (moon) perceives him is a large undertaking in this lifetime – his Libra Moon (others) opposes Aries Sun (self) and  **Jupiter on the high octane 0 degrees Aries point.  He is dealing with 4 strong oppositions involving Sun, Moon and Venus.  Creative expression is inherently a juggling act of awareness and compromised relationships with others.  Collaboration, when sought, is likely very rewarding.

I mentioned Jupiter on the (Mars-ruled) Aries point – it is trine Mars in Leo which is powering his whole chart with creativity from the 5th – Mars also trines exalted Aries Sun.  Independent risk-taking, single-minded goals, extreme sports, being a cheeky monkey (his words) are all power driven by the need to have fun, explore, achieve and move on to the next goal.

Anything on the Zero degrees Aries point is a huge outrush of that planetary energy – Jupiter here exponentially expands vibrations of teaching, philosophy, understanding, healing (12th) through actions.

I have already been on this like hair on ape – if you wanna climb on the comparison  soapbox, I suggest you read this first.
Then find the door.  Alllrighty then.

Julian has Venus (art, creativity) exalted and conjunct Chiron in Pisces in trine to Scorpio Neptune Rx.  Obviously musically talented, creative and sensitive.  (Moon is also in a Venus ruled sign, Libra)
Julian’s Neptune Rx (inspired music, photography) squares Saturn (work and father: also the energy at MC) …honestly the comparisons are old for me – but for him..?  .sheesh.

Earlier this year I watched an interview segment where some idiot news hack inserted Beatles music throughout – infuriating – Julian has been recording his own music for 30 years.  He deals with grace, (mostly) he was rightly pissed off re: the above, as was I.

As any good astrologer will tell you, the aspects do not define you – how you deal with the aspects aka energy – defines you.
Positive or negative/attract or repel, it is entirely up to you.  Saturn/ Capricorn elevated with Mercury rising smack on ASC is a double-edged sword: constant comparisons of a child (Mercury) to his father (Saturn) but it is also profound patience and clever evasion tactics of same.

In addition, Saturn is in Aquarius and let’s face it, that can mean change-ups and separations with the father, who is likely a rebellious sort.  It can also mean genius  innovative work, switch hitting between diverse work interests, a strong humanitarian streak (see Whaledreamers) and a love of the earth and earthkind (see White Feather).


Julian is an Aries with a strong sense of self who can withstand all the goofy public opinions that have shadowed him.  Jupiter in Aries also delivers faith in personal abilities.  North Node in Cancer shows his path of nurturing, and growing into his own regarding feelings surrounding family.  (see comments)
:::::::::::::::

Julian has Pisces Venus conjunct Chiron (harmony, healing with women, relationships)  opposite Uranus Rx / Pluto Rx conjunction in Virgo.  That can signal not only a need for personal freedom, but also the need to give it to others.  It signals perfectionism, or high standards (Uranus and Pluto are transpersonal) placed upon him (Venus is a personal planet) and his chosen art by others.  Venus opposite Pluto Rx will bring life – long metamorphosis involving not only love and creativity, but also money, peace of mind.  Read the wiki link above for the low-down on the money / will / heirloom trail; I am not going there, it irritates me he and his mother were treated this way.

Uranus is quintile (spiritual gifts) Neptune – this brings unusual Uranian style gifts, such as inspired musical talents, far out communication skills (betting on astral travel here), healing and compassion in addition to a well-spring of forgiveness.  Julian has lived his life under scrutiny and handled it very well in my opinion.
Uranus is also trine Mercury in Aries – Julian is not only quicksilver smart – with octaves of communication trine one another – he KNOWS (Merc trine Uran) he is talented in his own right, he has just been waiting for everyone else to catch up.

Here is a photo which elegantly represents the hands of a sensitive artist. Conic fingertips denote a spiritual, artistic, sensitive creator. Gemini on the second equals lovely hands and a lively creative mind.

Quickie asteroid round-up: Julian has transformative Sekhmet conjunct Sun; nature deity Freia conjunct ASC.

Head over to his instagram here if you are wondering what he’s looking at, he also pops into his fb account fairly regularly, look him up !
Yesterday Julian released a fantastic app that is worth every penny of $12 and then some – get it on his website here.

Love your work, Julian. xo

This one is dedicated to a billion Aqua Full MooOon children rolled into ONE.
I’ll pop one of the freshies in comments.

Mermaid, interrupted.

Moon in Leo trine Uranus in Aries.  Sun in Cancer.
aka: Get creative with the mood swings, bob and weave. 

Uranus in gung ho to go Aries is focal point of a T-Square with touchie – feelie Cancer Sun and rigid Capricorn Pluto.  Mercury advances to late Cancer and is awash with angsty mental gymnastics as we hash out Venus and Saturn retro.

Be cranky or be creative ? ! ?
 Libra serves up prime grade A choice once again.  Sun trines Saturn Rx while it opposes Pluto in Cap – no the work is not perfect, just show up and do it anyway, let the chips fall where they may.  Mars in Virgo trines Jupiter in Gemini – keep the dialogue moving and open < ~ > the road is hot !

~ seriously ~ who out there has been able to concentrate lately…?!
Anyone .. ?
My brain pan is snapping, fired up and popping !  No cohesion, just can’t bring it lately (no I am not fishing) my thoughts are scattered and I am feeling the pressure.

Venus Rx steps up to the plate to quincunx Pluto Rx in Cap.  Oy.  Adjustment – always a fun one, growing pains all over the shop : adaptation, improvisation with the past loves and creative juices morphing into our future. Not going fast enough is it…?  (Pluto squares Uranus after all.)   Hang tough.

Are we all getting our messages from the past yet ?  (South Node dovetailing between Venus and Jupes in Gem)

I got mine twice over, nice.  A couple of sweet little biscuits delivered straight to my heart in the middle of the minefield (yes, Venus and Jupiter rule sweet things) to help keep some hope alive. bless xo

Delusion is so last week – now Sunlight shines on Neptuner Rx and that is bringing the insightful goodies, thank the goddess !  It is about time.  May blessings be with you and your insights as well.


Rough week here.  Got in a fight at work today – was actually yelling.
Return of Tentacle Dude, sheesh the fuqers grow BACK.

I need that hermit job, stat !  Where do I sign up ?. lol

Seriously, though – the square tightens – do not engage.
Protections in place.
Lock & Load.

Delusional dilemmas are often so brilliantly deciphered in a sharp one card reading.
Here is mine from the Fairy Ring TarotI actually did a whole spread, but the first card told me all I needed to know right off the bat.

Venus Rx + Neptune Rx.

I have been giving all my head space to Uranus Pluto since they conjunct Sun in my natal, then the universe steps in …pssst… Neptune is your biggie, ya know, and Venus is squashed between the other 2 in progs.  Venus and Neptune don’t vibe well in my natal either, and the screws are turning. 

Neptune and Venus Retro are squaring up now, for all of us.  Luckily they do so in mutables, so we can adapt and change easier.  Venus is nearing Jupes by retrograde as well, and that is beneficial if not more than a little scattered in Gemini. 

Heads up for your messages from the past…just remember Venus stations direct at 7 degrees on the 27th – don’t expect real clarity  until it is out of shadow at 24 degrees of Gemini.
