My vinyl has a front row seat since I ditched the search for the holy grail of ipod decks. Haha don’t worry, we’re not goin’ there. I am spinning the Red Rocks show, ’bout wore it right out in highschool…I was dating a Sagittarius then, but we’re not gonna go there either. nope. Just know I have sworn off ’em for life.
May I introduce Paul David Hewson, better known as Bono.
I knew he was Toro, but I took another look, a closer look.
WoW – a kite, of course (an on target aspect for power and focused creativity), Moon Neptune conjunction in Scorpio (family man, quiet and deeply sensitive towards the public, wants to heal – North Node and Chiron in Virgo the public servant adds to this) as the apex opposite Sun, Mercury, Venus conjunction.
Obviously a very powerful singer (Taurus rules the throat, Venus rules Toro) Bono is a man whose very nickname means ‘good voice’ in latin – Bono Vox is an alteration of Bonavox.
Jupiter and Pluto sextile his Moon Neptune conjunction. Pluto is very well aspected making him a powerful provoker of positive change. Jupiter in Capricorn uses its powerful position in life in philosophical ways in order to benefit others. It is an expansive social responsiblity aspect. I gotta mention again how much I love this Sag/Cap energy – idealism & expansion coupled with restraint.
Mars in the last degree of Pisces is also a very powerful signature of someone who wants to activate large-scale healing. Saturn rules Capricorn, is placed strongly here in trine to his Taurus stellium – Bono is obviously a hard worker who feels a huge responsibility to communicate love and fairness world-wide. He steps up to the plate to do so again and again, using his fame for betterment of the world.
(check out wiki for extensive list)
Bono has Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune and Pluto retrograde, he’s only gonna get better with age – awesome – I really liked him at 23, lol. Speaking of which, his birthdate reduces to 22, a master number; it signals a Master Builder with idealistic creativity put forth in grand manifestation, it denotes charisma, precision and balance.
I knew Bono had emergency back surgery for severe compression of the sciatic nerve in May of 2010, which is shown by a very strong Uranus placement in Leo (rules the back) as focal point of a T-square. (Genius creativity aspect) Uranus is square both his Moon Neptune conjunction and also his Taurus stellium. This makes him an independent thinker who blazes a trail of creativity, hope and radical generosity wherever he goes.
I don’t have a specific time for his stress injury while rehearsing, but I checked transits for the week prior to his surgery on May 21, 2010. Bono had tr. Uranus (and Jupiter nearing) conjunct natal Mars exact, tr. Mars conjunct natal Uranus. Pluto was Rx applying to his natal Jupiter, and 9th house rules the sciatic nerves. (Jupiter rules the 9th) His surgery was successful, and Bono was back on stage in August of the same year. Strong in heart, spirit and body, right on !
