Kurt Cobain, Sun-Neptune and Astrology Secrets

Posted by Eric F Coppolino

In tonight’s program I look at the current Sun conjunct Neptune aspect, and describe the how Neptune works and how Chiron works as an astrological factor. I offer some perspective on the visual illusion of television vis a vis Marshall McLuhan, the grandfather of media theory. Then I look at the natal chart of Kurt Cobain, whose 49th birthday would have been Feb. 20. In the last section I talk about the differences between a natal chart, a solar chart, whole sign houses and a sidereal chart — an excellent primer on chart types that will be fun for anyone to listen to.

    Gratuitous fact: the Meat Puppets performed TV Nation’s “We Are All Corporations” anthem (the episode drew attention to corporate breaches of law by having a fundraiser for companies that had been fined)

    I’ve noted through successive inquiry, there’s a non-understanding of alcoholism (and is possibly reflective of any other source of addiction). I’ll offer my thoughts. An alcoholic will drink themselves into, and beyond, detriment. I speak mainly of physical such as your body shutting down due to toxicity, though I do explore the detriment of social interaction as well. When the point comes where you hurt like a fuck, your body doesn’t work right, and you think death is a relief.. and then you need a fuckin’ drink to make it go away.. that’s an alcoholic. Drunk’s!?! They can be great fun! I straight up enjoy a good party, have fun as you will! Alcohol doesn’t inherently make an alcoholic, just as chocolate doesn’t make one a chocoholic… except for the fact that alcohol can kill you faster, or make you suffer, if you lose yourself.

    As far as if there wasn’t electronic media of any sorts I’d probably be out there exploring the world, as oppossed to in here exploring the world in order to broaden my perspective.
    It seems as if it’s allowed me to slow down my life/perspective, in relation to my desire to physically explore the unknown in a way that doesn’t lessen the magnitude of reality and discovery but broadens the scope of methodology. Being that more has been seen and heard through media, I’ve been allowed an opportunity to pick and choose what to explore.
    I always resrve the right to turn all the shit off anyway! I love bugs and plants and animals.., the sea, land, travel.. could play with ‘em all for the rest of this trip! Those things too reflect ‘exploration of media’, being that they are a presentation of reality and a source of dicovery.
    I think an intuitive, historical, anthropocentric definition of media could be found within the concepts of change, and adaptation, and the conciousness of fear and its relation to self-sustainability (even the psychological desire to exist or not).
    I think there’s a balance that can be observed in the individual’s state of well-being (regardless of obstacle or hardship).

    I think whole house astrology is a good way to go as far as general interpretation. It does light up and solidify the flavors a bit.
    Personally, I fixate on personal, intuitive interpretation of my own natal chart, in which I find it useful to accept that, for example, I am a Sag. Sun in a Scorpionic 5th. For analogy I use this: imagine being born in your neighbors house. (This is the fun part) Imagine you’re Gandalf, and your neighbor’s Bilbo. Well, Gandalf is really tall, and Bilbo is really short, there’s an almost 12th house sense in that arrangement. None of that reality takes away from the fact that Gandalf was designed for a Gandalf house and that he was born into a Bilbo house (and they’re good friends), nor does it negate the fact that Gandalf was born into a house that can’t accomodate his size (without awareness). What it does for me is illustrate nuance, and the ability of the cosmos/existence to elicit such subtle differentiation as to create a diverse Universe.

    Good show Eric. Look forward to more written exhibitionism on the workings of astrology, this is an excellent idea.

    Also, Always Love a good drug conversation! Maybe we can baptize the Protestants in The Well of Reality!!

    Kick-ass,

    Jere

    Im gonna follow suite with the “good show” compliments
    5 star. A 10.
    really liked the begin-ing-ish focus on neptune, etc.
    and crazy chart for Cobain – I noticed the source for birth time as questionable – but then ummm.
    its gotta be spot on.
    i appreciate your explanation on your perspectives with commercial astro readings.
    and the further talk about McLuhan is always interesting, especially the tie to astro-chart.
    thx

    Nicolas, funny you should mention that. I saw it for the first time yesterday googling Pisces celebrities. Just as a concept it’s ridiculous, though someone a long time ago (when I was a high school student with no knowledge of astrology) informed me: Christ was a Pisces.

      I find the aspects extraordinary (Sun conjunct Jupiter, Jupiter conjunct Uranus, Sun conjunct Uranus and so on) and as I believe in what is said of him some things make great sense, like his healing abilities, how he confronted the established powers (Sun- Pluto opossition and all the planets involved in that opposition) his conquering of death and resurrection (2nd house planets opposing 8th house planets) and so on. Makes me be amazed at what is humanly possible, well, I’ll just say this. Cool that you saw it, happy coincidence. See you and thanks.

      *I’m not very good at reading a chart but still can see something I like to think.

        Nicolas: i believe you are indeed on to something. Perhaps what is most salient about any personality is not what he or she is (or was), but what he or she evokes.

    Jere very interesting thoughts. I like the Gandalf concept. Some of us just feel like aliens on the flat world but we are supposed to be here anyway so we do our best to find a place whether it fits perfectly or not. May it isn’t supposed to.

    I had a lot to say about alcohol and alcoholic drinking from my own investigation of its potential enlightening power but it all deleted so I guess I’ll just say I agree with your views on it.
