Jon & Kate, Divorce at 8
I kept seeing Kate's face on the tabloids and didn't know who she was. Just kept wondering why a celebrity would have a haircut that makes her look like a bird. Finally I've caught on, Kate is one of the ladies recently who had sextuplets. Unlike Nadya Suleman who had octuplets this year and who has been the butt of all kinds of jokes and downright abuse, Kate is well respected. She has been respected because she is married. Now we'll have to see if the tables turn in that regard.
As part of the Season 5 kick off Kate's husband Jon was seen leaving a party with a good friend of the couple. Now, as a gift from the Cancer New Moon opposing Pluto party, the couple filed for Divorce on June 22, 2009.
It's pretty interesting that natally both Jon and Kate are Aries Suns who are born with natal Pluto oppositions to their Suns. Half the families in the country went through a Divorce while Pluto was in Libra. It's interesting to see the Fame element of Pluto playing itself out here. I discussed that in yesterday's post with regards to last week's passings of celebrities as it relates to the Sun-Pluto opposition).
Here we have a loss in the celebrity family world. Guess that makes sense since this New Moon was in Cancer, the sign of Hearth and Home.
The Divorce Show of the series apparently brought in record viewers for TLC. Sounds like a Roman Forum just waiting to happen. Hopefully, this show will bring up discussions about Divorce especially with regards to how the children react to the situation and what really goes on behind those closed door(s). And especially as to how things ought to be in the house. Fortunately, the Show has decided to stop filming until after the set of 3 Eclipses this Summer. That's some emotional wreckage that nobody really needs to see. The first year of Divorce is generally Hell in which Mommy and Daddy need to take time-outs every 2 seconds in order to get their heads screwed back on. It might actually be more damaging for the kids to lead such a public life and not be able to share the worst two months of their childhoods. They will always have to make "appearances" regarding their families from now on.
My first reaction was, Oh, this couple is sweet and diverting attention from poor Nadya Suleman who I last heard had to go to the Hospital for some kind of damage done by carrying all those babies and is being sued by Gloria Aldred for accidentally hiring some Nannies who were testing positive for Tuberculosis because she had to fire Adlred's Nurse Angels for spying on her. The whole time the Artificial Insemination Docs continue to make these messes and are running around buying stock in companies who make prams with 44 seats.
So, you know, yadda yadda yadda here. What are two Aries doing getting married in the first place? Aries Suns opposite Pluto in Libra too. I already said Pluto in Libra was the Divorce Generation.
There's a lot more to go into sometime. But, what really interests me is that Jon and Kate's children may all have Aquarius Moons, just like Nadya Suleman's kids. Isn't that weird? (Aquarius keyword) I don't have their birth times so I'm not sure of their Moon placements.
The Twins are now about 8 1/2 years old. A Divorce Event will perhaps hook them into a Venus Cycle, definitely a Lilith Cycle as this is the closest Return for them at this time. They are going through double whammy Neptune transits right now as well. The transiting NN is on natal Neptune and transiting Neptune-Jupiter-Chiron is conjunct natal Uranus-Maybe Moon. They probably won't have any memory of this event and will repeat an inability to not remember stressful events later on down the road in whatever way they prefer to express that. On the one hand, people love a person with a sweet disposition. On the other hand, if stressed by this event, they may act out later in life through compulsive problems with envy/jealousy and through relationship or sexual addiction. With Neptune involved there is fear of drug abuse. Of course, this also can show that as a result of the divorce they develop a very refined sense of aesthetics along with diplomatic skills which they can share with the world.
The Sextuplets are just past their first Nodal Square and Saturn square and are moving into their first Jupiter opposition. So, they may develop strong social and political expressions in the outside world and they will probably all take advantage of their College funds and get lots of higher degrees (hopefully). With natal Mars in Cancer they may suffer emotional fall-out later in life. Hopefully they are throwing their tantrums now and the behavior is dealt with through patience and love and caring. There was a picture of Kate hitting one of them in the tabloid at the check-out stand, so she's probably got her Aries thing going pretty high right now. Since Kate's Sun squares their natal Mars-Saturn conjunction she may express to them that they are a burden in a way that is very damaging to them.
