” No man can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one, and love the other or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. ” – Some Jewish bloke called Matthew, address probably around London N17.
One of the great joys of astrology is the vast number of connections that exist, just waiting to be unearthed. To quote one of Matthew’s mates its ” like unto treasure hid in a field, the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field ” and spends the rest of his life playing in it.
On hearing the news of Uranus’ last action in the sign of the Reds – Arsene Wenger – The Last Uranian ? I was idly musing on his potential successor when for some utterly bizarre reason the name Sol Campbell popped into my head.
Years ago I would have dismissed this kind of thing as mind wandering gone particularly mad, but these days I’m more likely to see it as an article that needs to be written and sure enough a quick glance at the CR database revealed a spiritual odyssey that had to be made.
Matt may have been right about the hatred, but most of us don’t have any choice about serving two masters – our two lights invariably make different demands and the Moon has to be honoured even by a man named after the other one.
Sol Campbell is a Virgo ( Tottenham’s sign ) but he has the Moon at 27 Libra in a very close conjunction with Uranus. What does this mean ? Simply that he will be pulled in a different direction by someone or something that has a strong connection with the tail end of that sign.
Arsene Wenger has the Sun at 28.40 Libra, and Uranus has reached the exact opposition to that point on the very day that he announces his retirement as predicted three months ago Arsene Wenger – The Last Uranian ?
Truly fascinating but the synastry of North London’s greatest betrayal doesn’t end there.
The Spurs foundation chart has the Sun at 12 Virgo exactly conjunct Campbell’s Venus, obviously the type of thing that would make the White Hart Lane faithful profess their undying love. However ” hell hath no fury ” etc.
Campbell’s Venus is in very close opposition to Jupiter in Pisces, and anyone married to someone with this combination knows they need to have eyes in the back of their head.
I know its only a noon chart, but the placing of Jupiter right on the 4th house cusp suggests someone who travels for a bit of extra – marital, but only as far as next door.
As always if an opposition forms part of a T square, the planet or point at the apex will show us exactly what direction that person will go.
And Campbell’s apex is Neptune but more specifically the North Node at 13.34 Sagittarius.
And Wenger’s Venus is at 13.39 Sagittarius. Sol and Arsene sitting in a tree…..
In the summer of 2001, his contract expired. Tottenham offered him a new one which would have made him the club’s highest-ever paid player, but after months of negotiations and several public assurances he would stay at Spurs, Campbell stated his need to leave the club in order to play in the Champions League. Several top continental club expressed interest in signing him, but he joined Arsene Wenger on a free transfer having previously stated in an interview that he would never play for Arsenal.
Needles to say many Spurs fans were inspired by the above and named him Judas after one of Matt’s other mates.
What was happening astrologically during the summer.of 2001 ? Pluto was moving between 12 and 13 Sagittarius, right on the NN and square to both Venus and Jupiter.
The North Node is all about about the direction we are going to have the most success in, and even the most most one eyed Spurs fan would have to acknowledge that Campbell took it.
This was confirmed with Sol’s Turning Point in 2006 when with Pluto square his Sun he scored in the Champions League final.
Capricorn Research can’t really be bothered to check if any other Virgoan central defenders have scored a goal in the final, but if they have you can bet that 1/ they would have had a major Pluto transit at the time and 2/ being Virgo would probably have still finished on the losing side.
So thats that then.
Although its interesting that just as Uranus opposite his Sun finally prized Wenger’s gnarled old fingers from the Emirates doors, the planet is also opposite Campbell’s Moon / Uranus conjunction.
No doubt Sol has put on his best suit and is heading for Stan Kroenke’s office as I write.
Now I’m not for one minute suggesting that Sol Campbell should be immediately appointed as Arsenal manager, but somewhere in a parallel Universe, known only to Matt and his mate J, you can be sure this is happening.
