Peter’s prowess

Game of Thrones

How fun is it watching Peter chew lines and spit ’em out with sardonic wit week after week ?  Easily one of my favorites on GoT, he steals scene after scene, year after year.  Peter won an Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series in 2011 for the role of Tyrion.  I have loved his work since I saw The Station Agent, co-starring Patricia Clarkson, I highly recommend it.

Peter is a very earthy Gemini Sun (and Mercury – rules Gem), with 3 planets in Toro, including Moon (exalted here) and a late Virgo stellium.

Early Sagittarius Mars, Chiron in Aries are his lone fire planets – but with Jupiter nestled between Pluto and Uranus – Peter has plenty of wisdom, enthusiasm and power to attain adventurous goals.  Chiron in Aries is a powerful drive to heal wounds through understanding/seeing the big picture, while focusing on taking the single-minded  independent lead.  Mars in Sag loves to explore, learn, experience and play.

Sag Mars quintiles (genius expression) Virgo Pluto and if that doesn’t make a randy, lusty, silver-tongued devil I’ll eat your hat.  Perfect casting !  It also indicates a drive to expand philosophies/perceptions surrounding perfection on a mass scale (Mars quint Pluto trine Moon).

Virgo Jupiter neck and neck with the innovator (Uranus) and the metamorph (Pluto) craft a clever, witty and practical punch.  Pluto trines exalted Moon in Venus – ruled Toro leading to favor, attraction via steady, humble groundwork – laid patiently, skillfully, and sensually, I might add. 

Tyrion LannisterKudos to leathersmith, & artisans all – fantastic work !

Peter has Gemini Sun square late Virgo Pluto/Jupiter/Uranus leading to a tremendous inner tension forcing intellectual/communicative self-improvement.  The key is versatility inherent to mutable signs – mental dexterity, witty repartee, being calm, cool, collected in a battle of wits.

That knock-out Virgo stellium sees Jupiter in exact sextile to Neptune in Scorpio – now that is the ability to powerfully flesh out any scenes on film (Neptune).  The minutiae of  expressions Peter is capable of turning out in scene after scene is stunning. Did you catch his eye twitching when Tywin (new hand in the office) was lecturing him ?  Go back and look – amazing.  He is all kinds of fun to watch onscreen !

Venus bang on Saturn in Toro has much to do with that artistic control.  Venus rules Taurus and the arts; Saturn, discipline and control – both are well-placed in earth.  Peter’s perceptual prowess coupled with powers of mimicry – Mercurial energy is working its charm !

I’ll pop some fun vids in the comments – fair warning – plenty of swearing and skin.
If it turns you off – don’t turn it on.




Jo is radiant  in the photo above, yes ?

Lovely, generous Leo Jo Rowling, is no longer in the Forbes billionaire club.
It is estimated she has given $160 million to charities, supporting organizations linked to poverty, multiple sclerosis (her mother suffered from MS), children’s welfare and illiteracy.  She has written 3 books that have raised almost $30 million for charities as well.

Hi qi Leos (Sun rules) positively radiate  warmth, charisma, and generosity.
They are creative and friendly with a kind heart  (Leo rules).

Jo is obviously brilliantly creative, and I had to have a look at her chart.
This is a solar chart, so the planets in signs are correct, the houses may likely change.

Jo is a life path 5, which represents change, freedom and artistic expression.

Mega Virgo stellium !
A giant rolling conjunction: Moon, Pluto, Uranus, Venus all in Virgo; Mercury conjunct at 29 (culmination degree) Leo.  I am soOo not surprised by the extensive notes and outlines she wrote in preparation for the Harry Potter series. Virgos love their   organization and notes !  I would love to see them, wouldn’t you..?

The whole series of books is so rich with vivid detail and imagination brought to life in the written word.  She has Saturn Rx the planet of weaving and building in the sign of Pisces the mystical, inspired artist opposite all of the above except Mercury – although,  I’m calling it opposite by transference of light.

Saturn is also conjunct Chiron the philosopher, teacher and healer.  Interesting as Jupiter is oriental in her chart bringing a life of exploration, foreign travels, and higher education into sharp focus ( Yes, I just called Jupiter in Gemini focused.) especially with the addition of North Node of Destiny present in Gemini as well.

Jupiter is the focal point of a massive T- Square involving Saturn – Moon, Pluto, and Uranus opposite.  Jupiter in Gemini is hopeful, expansive with a love of grandiose ideas, reading, writing – basically communicating in some form or fashion 24/7.
It is a high-octane mentally alert and cerebrally dexterous house on steroids that loves to explore the universe for new ideas.  I can only imagine the difficulty she experienced reining in all the nebulous Pisces and distractions of Gemini to create works that have sold over 400 million copies and are the world’s best selling series of books.

Jupiter rules teachers and universities (I always saw Hogwarts as a university, I don’t care how old Harry, Hermione and Ron were, that’s how I imagined it.) and think of how many kids picked up the books to read. Even kids that really didn’t like to read were reading them. That’s amazingly cool.  J.K. Rowling is a teacher of wizards and witches the world over.

Her Sun square Neptune in Scorpio (loss of will, hope), and Saturn in opposition to all that Mercury-ruled Virgo have been troublesome for her.  Moon conjunct Pluto and Jo lost her mother just as she began writing about Harry, her mother never knew of her success.  Jo has suffered from debilitating depression, and contemplated suicide, a condition which inspired the soul-sucking dementors.  How sad when the Leo light dims…read her story (from wiki) below:

Seven years after graduating from university, Rowling saw herself as “the biggest failure I knew.” Her marriage had failed, she was jobless with a dependent child, but she described her failure as liberating:

Failure meant a stripping away of the inessential. I stopped pretending to myself that I was anything other than what I was, and began to direct all my energy to finishing the only work that mattered to me. Had I really succeeded at anything else, I might never have found the determination to succeed in the one area where I truly belonged. I was set free, because my greatest fear had been realized, and I was still alive, and I still had a daughter whom I adored, and I had an old typewriter, and a big idea. And so rock bottom became a solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life.
– Harvard commencement address, 2008.

When Jo began to work her Mars in Venus (art) ruled Libra trine Jupiter, as well as Saturn trine Neptune in Scorpio – it alleviated the stress of the oppositions and squares in her chart.  Her Neptune (imagination) is sextile Moon, Uranus and Pluto in Mercury ruled (writing) Virgo.  She also has a lovely Venus quintile Neptune which is a special talent for expressing the Scorpionic mystical arts through writing.

Thank you Jo, for hanging in there and gifting us your brilliant world of magic ~

Ps.  I vote Capricorn rising.  You ?

Loretta Lynn & Patsy Cline
These are my refrigerator magnets.  Obviously, I love these gals.
The first one I bought was the Patsy magnet. I was in Nashville, at the Ernest Tubb record store, across the street from Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, which is right behind the Grand Olde Opry.
Incidentally, in 1961, Loretta was singing some of Patsy’s songs live on the radio from the Ernest Tubb record store, when Patsy heard her (she was recovering from a car crash in the hospital at the time) and asked her husband, Charlie, to go and fetch Loretta – she wanted to meet her.  Loretta was thrilled and a life – long friendship was born.  The chart below shows the transits for the car crash I am speaking of.

Patsy was a life path 5, she challenged the status quo and lived her life her way.
She was born just after the first quarter moon which indicates a life of action and crisis control – it is a moon of versatility and trailblazing.

Patsy was a raucous bawdy stand – up gal who stuck up for herself and others with strength of character and a great generosity of spirit.  Patsy was a Virgo, Capricorn Moon, with Gemini rising – Mercury chart ruler.

Mercury is at 29 (culmination degree) of Leo conjunct the nadir.  Virgo stellium in the 4th house of feeling.  Mercury conjunct Jupiter – that amps up any and all forms of self – expression.  Tightly conjunct Neptune the inspired musician – all the feelings from the well of water – felt and soaked up from others – comes pouring out through the divine vehicle – the voice.  Patsy has this entire Virgo stellium trine Capricorn Moon in the 7th.  She sang with such great depth of feeling and eloquently expressed each turn of phrase, each note.  Great singers practice control and restraint.

Patsy was a strong woman who stood up to record execs and promoters – she demanded cash on the barrelhead, ‘no dough, no show’.  She had top billing and maintained control of her career when many women were considered secondary to the higher paid male stars, and were treated as such.
Patsy was the first woman in country music to perform at New York’s Carnegie Hall, and in 1962, she was also the first woman in country music to headline her own show in Vegas.

Patsy also has a stellium in the second house, the natural house of Taurus.  When Patsy was 13, she had a serious case of rheumatic fever (Mars) and she almost died (Pluto).  When she recovered, she discovered she had developed a booming voice. (Venus rules Taurus, the throat).

This 2nd house stellium is in opposition to Saturn in Capricorn (it rules, strong placement) in the 8th.  Patsy had perseverance in the face of death (8th house), that’s for sure. The focal planet of her T-Square is Uranus in Aries.  Uranus is Mars flavored, and Patsy was known to be very down to earth and ‘one of the guys’, fond of telling bawdy jokes and cutting up while downing a few at the bar.  Uranus rules the 11th house, so she was an outspoken maverick, a strong what you see is what you get  woman.

Uranus square to Saturn and square the 2nd house stellium with Pluto dovetailing between Mars and Venus and she was a powerhouse catalyst for all those in her circle, women and  men.  I mean not only her inner circle, but Cancer being Moon (public) ruled, her audience and the music industry as well.

As I mentioned above, the transits are for the time of Patsy’s 1961 car crash.  She was thrown through the windshield and again, nearly died.  The 3rd house is short distance travel, (accident happened in Nashville) and Mars (accidents) is coming to conjunct Uranus in the 3rd house.  North Node throws a beneficial influence over Mercury (rules travel) by conjunction.  Sun does as well by sextile.

Note also that a Saturn return indicates a new perspective on life, reaching a stage of growth and reflection, as well as karmic meetings.  The accident spurred Patsy to a renewed faith and brought her a karmic gift – she met Loretta Lynn. (click)
If you are wondering about the title – Patsy called her friends Hoss, men & women alike.
