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.

Gaia KNOWS

Freydoon Rassouli

Well this has certainly been an interesting set of transits . . .woke up this morning five minutes after I am supposed to be at work.  Safe to say Scorpio boss found this Toro Full Moon a tad disagreeable to his Sun.  Toro just shy of full  Moon opposition was sliding in between Sun and Saturn the boss planets  opposite in Scorpio right when I woke up.  Seriously.  Can’t make this shit up.

Venus popped into Libra (my MC – career) opposite [omgwhattimeissit !?! oh fuq I’m late] Uranus the awakener in Aries, the Mercurial Trickster just bounded into Sagittarius and a square to Neptuner the sleeping princess aka good morning astrology !

SoOo…this is gonna be quick.  I was running errands, the wind picked up, walking meditation kicked the brainpan into high gear, some clarification on yesterday’s post and some new quickies…
::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
First of all, didn’t want to give the impression that D.C. or NYC or anywhere else in the east needs a good energetic clean anymore than anywhere else on earth.

Second of all, to all you rockstars who would rather not be tossed in a heap with ‘rockstar politicians’ : if you are working high Neptune – you aren’t.  If however; you want your money for nothin’ and your chicks for free – that’s low Neptune and puts you in the creep heap.   * See Duff McKagen for young days toxic low Neptune metamorphed into older, sober, buff Duff working his high Neptune helping other musicians.
::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
What I did mean by cleaning is :

Gaia is TCB ( takin’ care of business ).
She IS 70 % water, after all – intuitive, emotional and she IS communicating.

The Vishuddha is the throat chakra – it is blue, Mercury rules.

Mercury squared Neptunian seas the moment it entered Sagittarius, the sign of visionary teaching and SEEING the UNIVERSAL TRUTH.

Gaia IS alive – she is just vibrating much more slowly on the electromagnetic spectrum than humans.  See Pangea and earth evolution on a former post here.  This superstorm hurricane Sandy is helping to keep the oceans thermohaline circulation working properly – it has to keep moving or we’re all screwed.

GAIA IS IN CHARGE of cosmic checks and balances – she is flat out showing the boss planets Saturn conjunct Sun in Scorpio WHO REALLY HAS THE POWER.

Not governments, not corporations rife with greed, not politicians, not the famous ‘reality’ show bullshit advertisement avalanche we are buried in – none of it.

It all comes down to accepting our place in the fabric of earth time – humans are but a teeny weenie blip in earth time.  There have been FIVE MASS EXTINCTIONS on this planet.   Humans have managed to do more damage in far less time than any other species on earth – ever – in 4.6 BILLION years.  Sobering, yes ?

Saturn and Pluto are in mutual reception = POWER CONTROL on EARTH

SHE HAS IT.
SHE HAS THE POWER.
OUR MOTHER.

Venus in her home – the sign of love and balance – Libra
She is applying to Pluto the metamorphic transformer of desires
She opposes radical inventive Uranus

Pluto is the fulcrum upon which our future swings

SOLUTION
REVOLUTION
EVOLUTION

LOVE OUR MOTHER.
::::::::::::::::
She’s what we went back for.
Saturn is the ancient ruler of Aquarius.
Saturn rules earth.

Scientific progress must go hand in hand 
IN BALANCE
with
MOTHER EARTH
