Crazy Charlie and Mad Mo - The Usual Suspects
Sheen and Moammar Gaddafi have been taking up the frontlines of the
media for weeks now, so I had to look at their horoscopes. They both
reveal obvious signatures, even though no birth time is available for
Crazy Charlie Sheen
not sure crazy is the best term. Charlie is very different and has
plenty of astrological reasons for his eccentricities. Like
His Sun in Virgo is conjunct both Uranus and Pluto which are only a
degree apart. The combo certainly gives him reason to act like a Wild
Man. Uranus pushing him to be his own free, unique being. Pluto giving
him the macho, tough guy, but also sometimes brain dead character. If
you imagine putting the three glyphs together in one image, it would
give you some good hints about Sheen. The Pluto glyph is most
I am reminded of some other celebrities who have Sun
conjunct Uranus. Jerry Lewis and Rudy Giuliani. Both one-of-a-kind,
go-it-alone, “crazy” men. The French call Lewis Le Roi du Crazy. The
King of Crazy. Giuliani used to be the Emperor of Manhattan, in his
mind and a few others.
Robin Williams has Pluto conjunct Mercury
right at his midheaven representing the wild, mischievous trickster he
often portrays. Sheen has a combination of these qualities, at least to
• Sheen’s midheaven (public persona) is at 8
degrees of Aquarius. His Black Moon is within 2 degrees - giving him
more off-the-wall potentials. The 8 may give him some Messiah complex
things to deal with. He thinks he’s great. Whatever the rest of the
world thinks is irrelevant.
• Sheen has almost all mutable planetary placements. He is subject to sudden and frequent change.
• His Ascendant is in Gemini which can contribute to his changeability as well as just a general chameleon nature.
has always and will likely continue to be wild for Charlie, but the
present period - covering a long time - is bound to be stressful. He
has a whole host of luminaries passing through Pisces and OPPOSING - in
his case battling with - his Sun-Uranus-Pluto complex. Actually, most
of the outer wheel (transiting) planets oppose most of his inner wheel
None of this exonerates any of Charlie Sheen’s behavior. It only helps to explain some of it.
Sabian Symbols. I have learned a lot from them. I have decided that the
best significator for a person is often recognized as the Sabian Symbol
of a person’s North Node. Sheen’s is at 10 degrees of Gemini which
says, “An airplane performing a nose dive.”
Mad Moammar Gaddafi
Moammar is another case. An even harder case. (We have no birth time, so I just guessed at one to make a chart.)
chart seems to work pretty well since it puts Aries - aggressive,
energetic, willful - at his Midheaven and Leo - the royal one - at his
The big Signature for Gaddafi is five (5) planets plus the Black Moon
in Gemini. Moammar is off balance - for good or ill - from day one.
Half his luminaries are in Gemini. Gaddafi may feature himself as a
MOSSIAH (note the spelling), but he can thank his stars that he lasted
this long on the world scence.
In my opinion, it takes an enlightened being to handle all the energies he has bottled up in Gemini (or any sign).
There are a number of similarities in Gaddafi’s chart to that of Zelda
Fitagerald who spent much of her life in an insane asylum. She only had
half as many planets in Gemini.
There are even more similarities
to that of Mad King George III of England who lost his American
colonies. George was definitely mentally disturbed from his early days.
George had six planets in Gemini and another at 29 degrees of Taurus.
Gemini is or can be the sign of “lunatic or genius.”
doubt Gaddafi is a talented man, a fighter, leader, etc. But, power can
destroy the best of people and those around him/her. His chart as laid
out has Pluto right at his Ascendant, which is a very suggestive
• One more thing: All of Gaddafi’s luminaries are
placed between 27 degrees of Virgo and 2 degrees of Aries - a little
more than 150 degrees out of 360. It is like he hs a house and puts all
of the furniture on one side of the room. Full on one side, empty on
the other. Another picture of Gaddafi.
Sheen, Gaddafi has major transits to his Signature Gemini stellium.
Instead of Oppositions, he is experiencing SQUARES which will last a
long time. Mo’s time is probably up. There will surely be lots more
violence, death ahead as you see a host of planets lined up in his 8th
house of death and transformation.
• Sabian Symbol. 9 degrees of
Virgo: “An expressionist painter at work.” I am not sure what this
symbol for Gaddafi means, I don’t know his whole story well enough.
