12 Men Who Walked on the Moon

ADDITION: This links to a really fascinating blog called "Learning Curve on the Ecliptic" that relates the Nodes, Pluto and an Eclipse to the charts of the Astronauts who were lost in the Challenger Crash: http://twilightstarsong.blogspot.com/2007/09/challenger-astronauts.html.

USA Today
has an article about the 12 Apollo Astronauts who walked on the Moon. They are featured in a new documentary In the Shadow of the Moon. I began to wonder if their Moons would all be in Cancer, or something really cool like that. Had to check. It looks like a significant amount of Gemini Risers, we love to walk after all. I personally prefer to walk in places where the gravity will hold me down.

The Astro-Stand-Out here is that they all were born while Pluto was in Cancer, the sign ruled by the Moon. Pluto being a slow moving planet that affects generations rather than individuals; it's interesting that this is the generation that went to the Moon (tricked into it no doubt by the Pluto in Geminis who were too chicken). Before this time the Moon was a Romantic Symbol to write Love Songs about and to go Insane over. It now became about Power and Fame, Pluto words. The main motive here was the Cold War, a major historical symbol of Pluto in Cancer. This is some pretty imaginative Homeland Security, let me tell you. The title of the Documentary even uses a Pluto word "Shadow" in its title. In 1930, there was a conjunction of Jupiter to Pluto in Cancer with a square from Uranus in Aries and then an opposition to Saturn and NN in Capricorn. It's amazing how many of these guys were born in that year.

Buzz Aldrin is quoted as saying that there is no color in outer space. He calls it a place of "Magnificent Desolation." I just have to add those descriptions.

1) Neil Armstrong b. Aug. 5, 1930 Wapakoneta, Ohio
Moon 26 Sagittarius; Sun Leo; Gemini Rising

2) Buzz Aldrin b. Jan. 20, 1930 Glen Ridge, NJ
Moon 20 Libra; Sun 1 Aquarius; Gemini Rising

3) Pete Conrad b. June 2, 1930 Philadelphia, PA
Moon 28 Leo; Sun 12 Gemini; AS 24 Libra

4) Alan Bean b. Mar. 15, 1932 Wheeler, Texas
Moon 30 Gemini; Sun 26 Pisces; AS 11 Leo

5) Alan Shepard b. Nov. 18, 1923 Derry, NH
Moon Pisces or Aries; Sun 26 Scorpio

6) Edgar Mitchell b. Sept. 17, 1930 Hereford, TX
Moon 14 Cancer (go Edgar!); Sun 24 Virgo; ASC 28 Leo

7) David Scott b. June 6, 1932 San Antonio, TX
Moon Cancer (go Dave!); Sun 16 Gemini

8) James Irwin b. Mar. 17, 1930 Pittsburgh, PA
Moon 4 Scorpio; Sun 27 Pisces ASC 16 Gemini

9) John W. Young b. Sept. 24, 1930 San Francisco, CA
Moon Libra or Scorpio; Sun 2 Libra

10) Charles Duke b. Oct. 3, 1935 Charlotte, NC
Moon Sagittarius; Sun 10 Libra

11) Eugene Cernan b. Mar. 14, 1934 Chicago, IL
Moon Pisces; Sun 24 Pisces

12) Harrison Schmitt b. July 3, 1935 Santa Rita, NM
Moon 21 Leo; Sun 12 Cancer; ASC 21 Pisces

I'll also mention the three Astronauts who died during training on Jan. 27, 1967. Gus Grisson was apparently a shoe-in for taking the first ride. All 3 had Pluto either conjunct or squaring their Nodes. I was making a point of leaving the Nodes out this time around. Oops.

1. Virgil "Gus" Grissom b. Apr. 3, 1926 Mitchell, Indiana
Moon in Sagittarius; Sun 14 Aries // Pluto c. NN

2. Edward Higgins White II b. Nov. 14, 1930 San Antonio, TX
Moon in Virgo; Sun 22 Scorpio // Pluto square NN

3. Robert B. Chaffee b. Feb. 15, 1935 Grand Rapids, Mich.
Moon in Cancer or Leo; Sun 27 Aquarius // Pluto c. SN

I believe that Christa McAuliffe also had a difficult Pluto-Node contact. Of the other 12 astronauts I found that Buzz Aldrin also had a wide square to his North Node and Edgar Mitchell not only had Pluto squaring the Nodes but in conjunction with Jupiter-Moon-Mars. He has since become interested in UFOs and paranormal/spiritual phenomenon and has founded the Institute of Noetic Studies. Both Aldrin and Mitchell have claimed at one point to have seen UFOs.

Hi - That's fascinating.

Synchronicity at work too! This afternoon I've been sorting out some work I did ages ago on the 7 astronauts who died in the Challenger tragedy. I'll post it next week when I've tidied it up and re-checked it - but just to say that the Moons Nodes and recent eclipses were linked to most of the men and woman.
