Arty Farty Friday ~ Richard Hamilton, Father of Pop Art.

Heaventree of Stars
Some seven years ago, searching for artwork related to astrology I came across this print by English pop artist Richard Hamilton. Its title is from a quotation from James Joyce’s Ulysses:
“The heaventree of stars hung with humid nightblue fruit.”

Richard Hamilton was dubbed “Father of Pop Art”. It was he who coined a name for the genre in fact; he influenced many artists

Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster, National Security Adviser.

President Trump this week named Army Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster as his new national security adviser, replacing Michael Flynn.

A look at the natal chart of the new national security adviser, with a little information as to how this gentleman is seen by another who knows him well – and how the Lt.General’s chart links to the president’s own.

PISCES: THE DREAM MAKER OR THE DREAMER?

Speaking in evolutionary terms, the  twelve signs of the zodiac represent the the 12 stages of consciousness.  Pisces represents the final stage of evolutionary consciousness.  Within the sign contains a consciousness of the totality of all the traits of the signs that have been experienced and come before. In its highest state of being it strives to remove itself from egocentric matters, meaning attachments to those things that do not assist in its soul’s development.   This is why Pisces ideally is the most spiritual sign of the zodiac.
Personally, I find this sign to be the kindest and one of the most misunderstood of the 12 signs. I feel water signs in general which are part of the water triad, better known as Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces probably relate to this personal observation of mine best because of their tendency to keep their feelings to themselves.  Born with the gift of retreating rather than forcing it’s agenda on others, this sign has the capacity to patiently wait on the sidelines for others less equipped and striving for attention to hang themselves. It is a sign of great compassion especially for those people less fortunate. They are often found in careers where they can help people unable to help themselves i.e., hospital workers, psychiatrists, psychologists and counselors. Ruled by the planet Neptune which bestows an affinity for music, art, meditation, spiritualism and occultism, this highly inspirational planet is striving to deliver us to higher realms, a real challenge for normal mortals who are constantly faced with a myriad of tempting choices. Of all the signs of the zodiac this is the most intuitive and psychic sign.

Even the most well balanced and grounded Pisces finds it hard to escape the temptations that Neptune brings. As I mentioned earlier the majority of Pisces people in the world will find their escape route through reading literature, films, cruises, music,  viticulture, chemistry or even craft beer.   All of these pursuits are healthy in themselves unless pleasurable pursuits become addictions.  If psychological disorders go unchecked alcohol, drug, or other addictions can manifest. Look, you don’t have to be a Pisces to want to find an escape route, but Pisces does it better than all the other 11 signs. Acting is another career that Pisces feel attracted to because they can escape into a role and become someone else. Of all the signs of the zodiac this is the most intuitive and psychic sign.   Poetry and poets also fall into the realm of Neptune and Pisces, as poetry is the most aesthetic form of expressing feelings.

 

This is one of my favorite signs because I admire their ability to chase rainbows, believe in Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy and their belief that behind every human being lies a kind and loving soul seeking to transcend the physical realm.  Those of you born at the tail end of the sign will be happy to know that all those obstacles you have been dealing with will be over by the end of the year. Here’s to sunny days ahead!!

Rex Tillerson, Secretary of State

A look at the natal chart of the USA’s new Secretary of State: Rex Tillerson, noting a few pointers from online sources as to the kind of guy he is, as perceived by those who know him.

Two key factors routinely mentioned by commentators are Tillerson’s long career in ExxonMobil – at retirement at the end of last year he was the company’s CEO; and that, via his Exxon career, he has crafted close
