That's Not My Mommy
John Barnes has had a buggaboo all his life that he didn't belong in his family. Well, John, don't we all? I mean, some people have a real family, but in California we don't meet too many of those.
John Barnes is this guy.
At Age whatever he is, 50 something, John decided to have a DNA test to figure out if he is really somebody else's kid. He doesn't look, walk, talk like anyone in his family and he's found a photo of an abducted boy from the 50s who he really does look like. He tells the whole media, or at least the media gets a hold of the story, and the media turns it into a Mini Reality Circus. Is John's weird story true? Can Modern Science confirm John's deepest paranoias?
And so today we get the results from the DNA test. Wonder if they sell these in the store next to the pregnancy tests? Does John have the same DNA as the kidnapped boy from the Mid-50s? Will John get a whole new family who makes him feel at home -- finalleeeeee?
Well, well. You already felt like an outsider in your family, John. I don't know how much of this shit they can put up with. 50 something is a little old to be banging a rattle against the crib walls. Your parents must be on death's door. Couldn't you have waited until after they died to have the test? Or at least not have made a media monkey dance out of it?
Well, you gotta do what you gotta do. And, of course, after looking at the chart I find out that John has the same nasty Venus-Mars-Pluto conjunction that I do. Nobody with this conjunction is going to feel at home, except maybe Murderers who are related to other Murderers. John's conjunction is all in Leo and it's conjunct the Sun which rules Leo so it's extra powerful. And Jupiter and maybe even the Moon are within conjunction. This guy needs to feel that he is extra special in some way. He also probably gets really bad depressions during Winter from lack of light with all this Leo. (Leo/Sun, light, get it?)
John, get an Ott light or move to Florida or New Mexico. Or California, it's a State of greedy rich people and screwed up misfits, weird, huh? you'll fit right in.
Mostly I think John's trauma is an example of just how difficult a Neptune transit can be especially when it happens to one's Sun. Transiting Neptune in Aquarius has been opposing John's giganormous Leo stellium for the last few years. Neptune opposing Sun can be rather un-grounding. The opposition puts one in really ridiculous emotional relationships with people. It's the Don Quixote stabbing at wine bags syndrome and the searching for sweet Dulcinea thing.
To add to that, Barnes' progressed Mercury stationed Retrograde back in 1999 or 2000. That's still pretty recent. Mercury rules the rational thought processes. Here his Mercury is pulling U'ys. What a combo. Take a breather, John. You might be somebody else's kid, but you're not going to find it out during a major Neptune transit. Mostly I think you belong to that Flower Power Generation that just needs to rebel against everything in order to find a higher ideal (Jupiter square Saturn, Uranus square Neptune). Whatever, I'm part of the generation that had to follow you guys and you all are utterly exhausting (but highly amusing). The Nodes show that you may be picking up on some really happy past life vibes that you want to re-live so maybe you might want to consider getting into past life regressions and things now.
