Midpoints galore

This person has midpoints galore!  I don’t think we will need to explore beyond the aspects of conjunction in order to get a fair idea of what’s going on under the covers.

There are no less than ten conjunctions between natal planets and midpoints in this chart.

Sun=Mars/Pluto; Moon=Uranus/North Node; Mercury=Venus/Ascendant (nb Asc. is my rectification); Venus=Sun/Moon;Venus=Uranus/Neptune; Mars=Mercury/Asc;Jupiter=Sun/Moon; Uranus=Sun/Venus; Pluto=Sun/Uranus; Pluto=Jupiter/Asc.

I don’t want to try to explain astrology here but give a general outline. So for the interpretation method:

(focus)= (the what and how the focus operates)

ie: Sun=Mars/Pluto reads as the Sun (what it represents is the focus) equals Mars/Pluto (what the focus is and how it operates)

So briefly:

Sun=Mars/Pluto   The ego definition=assertive power surges, can be intimidating or even violent

Moon=Uranus/North Node  The emotional fulfilment needs=an innovative relationship with the public (nb: unfortunately this can also extend to his relationship as an accused murderer fulfilling this need at least as long as a trial, if there is one, is in the public arena).

Mercury=Venus/Ascendant (nb. Asc measurement is by rectification) The communication method used=based on image consciousness to the point of vanity

Venus=Sun/Moon The social and relationship needs=to be in the spotlight/centre stage

Venus=Uranus/Neptune The social and relationship needs=exist in a fantasy/are concealed

Mars=Mercury/Asc  The use of energy=self serving thoughts

Jupiter=Sun/Moon  Public recognition=be in the spotlight/centre stage

Uranus=Sun/Venus  Individualistic expression=illumination of relationships (to be seen to be …)

Pluto=Sun/Uranus The power needs=feelings of superiority/‘above’ the rules’

Pluto =Jupiter/Asc  The power needs=an over-inflated ego


Sun/Moon midpoint

Staying with the natal chart of the accused Gerard Baden Clay and in the realm of the luminaries (the Sun and the Moon) there is a midpoint in particular to take note of.

In astrology it is called the Sun Moon Midpoint, a mathematical point midway (or exactly halfway) between the Sun and the Moon in a horoscope.

The Sun/Moon midpoint represents a point of “inner marriage” of your needs and your wants. It symbolises the close personal relationship of these psychological basics. This point is very important in any kind of relationship analysis, as well as the natal chart. This is the strongest point of individual need fulfillment, and thus it has to do with relationships and self-acceptance on a deep level. The Sun/Moon midpoint reveals your motivation, your driver in a horoscope.

Whenever we write of a midpoint of any planets it is indicated by the slash symbol as in ‘Sun/Moon’ or Venus/Moon etc

The accused, Gerard Baden-Clay’s midpoint Sun/Moon is at 02 Scorpio 55.  His natal chart reveals that at the time of his birth Venus was in conjunction with this midpoint as was the planet Jupiter. Now that’s a bunch of info! Straight off the top of my head reads ‘Scorpio – hmmm sex as a driver; this motivator together with Venus – a ‘ladies man’; ditto motivator together with Jupiter = lots of social activity.  My instinct tells me that we are talking about a ‘pants man’ here. Sure that’s easy to say considering the following:

Mainstream media reported:  At the time of the murder GBC had one mistress whom he has promised to leave his wife for, plus at least two other recent casual affairs on record.

To return to the classical astrological interpretations however, Jupiter conjunct Sun/Moon equates with the need to have successes as the focal point. When a person has Sun/Moon together with Jupiter they feel best when able to be directing, leading or guiding others at whatever level and that they won’t be happy in the role of ‘subject’.  So we have an instigator with the motivation of success.

A man with Venus in Scorpio to start with peaks my interest! These men have a strong need to control their partner, although this won’t be immediately apparent, and they may not ever admit to this. Depending on the moment, this male Venus in Scorpio will shoot you one of those piercing glares or totally blow up. Whichever style they choose, a slighted Scorpio lover is not a pretty sight. These people can be jealous of all of your attachments including your children or any other family members, but few will admit it. They’re not afraid of being underhanded in matters of the heart.

As to the midpoint significance, Venus conjunct Sun/Moon, well Venus is the focal point and the midpoint as you know is the fundamental driver. Rather than repeat myself, I think you can form your own opinion by combining the Venus in Scorpio together with Venus=Sun/Moon…  I think this confirms my initial instinct and that is just the Sun/Moon conjunctions. I haven’t discussed any further angles of interest yet!  Stay tuned as they say…
