 ==== ====Our Limited Time FREE 90 Day System Will Help You to Become a Better Singer. Do you love tosing? Then this FREE System is for you!http://www.ByteMusic.com ==== ====It is my belief that the popularity of the American Idol and X-factor judge, Simon Cowell is down toa recognition, deep in the belly of the collective, that it's healthy to revolt against sycophancy andtell it like it is. There's certainly nothing plastic, or false, about Mr Cowell's honesty on his talentsearch show. Infact, it seems that Simon was born with a form of Tourettes Syndrome. Every time he's called to judge someone, he hears them sing and exhibits an uncontrollable urge to say what millions arethinking -- but few would dare utter out loud. His no-holds barred approach resonates strongly inthe psyche of the 'authenticity challenged' millions worldwide who are saying, "Hey, it's great tosee you" or "Have a nice day", whilst really wanting to tell the person to take a hike. This is Simon's fascination; his ability to eschew any facade and still be accepted by the socialelite. In his uniform of tight black tee shirts, he is like a modern day comic book hero. Supermanmay have his costume of indestructibility but Simon has his cloak of opinion, and uses it to greateffect. Looking to his birth chart it's easy to locate the letter that Simon Cowell should wear on his body;P for Pluto or Power. This is the secret of his success. Venus, ruler of his Sun is in closeconjunction with Pluto, in the picky, detail oriented sign of Virgo. The Venus/Pluto conjunction isperfect symbolism for his ability to take singers (Venus) and transform (Pluto) their life andfortunes. From a wider standpoint though, as viewers we are not responding to Simon, per se, but to theenergies of Neptune (plastic, imagery, illusion, music) in Aquarius (the collective). Throughout the1990's and early 2000's we were all subjected to an incessant barrage of images on celluloid, orvia broadcast and print media, about how perfect and harmonious our lives and interactions withone another should be. Unfortunately, the majority of us were merging into that ideal of perfection,rather than living authentically and being who we are. Now though, the illusion is slowly beginningto shatter. When someone like Simon comes to public awareness he embodies the shadow side, whilst alsoappealing to the ideal - hence the title of the show. Like the 'perfect' celebrity who shocks us withtheir anorexia or drugs battle, revealing a hitherto unguessed fallibility, unconsciously SimonCowell represents the shadow of the collective psyche and has forced us to look at the side thatwe would rather deny exists. This is perfectly expressed through Neptune sextile to hisVenus/Pluto conjunction and is reiterated by his Moon (midday) being close to the Galactic Centre.Simon's birthtime is not publicly available but, as I have noted before, people who are born with apersonal planet close to the Galactic Centre at 26 Sag, often seem to come to worldwide
prominence. Simon Philip Cowell was born on 7 October 1959 in Brighton, England. It is commonly believedthat Libra is the sign of diplomacy with a penchant for sitting on the fence. However many in thelegal profession, and those who act as Judges in any connotation, are often born under the sign.Librans may have to weigh up decisions about themselves but, when it comes to dealing withother people, they get to the point quickly and succinctly (Aries rules 7th). Mars in aspect to Simon's Mercury increases the ability to be 'cutting.' Additionally with Saturn (theplanet of authority) and Jupiter (the planet of Judges) in their own signs, he is confident of his'rulings'. This Mars in sextile aspect to Uranus (and the Moon at midday) speaks of his delight inshocking the public and generally stirring things up a little. Sextiles always point to communicationor travel issues and the same planets incline him to be to-and-froing in his 'flash' cars, or private jets. For someone who makes a living out of handling images it is hardly surprising that Simon Cowellshould manage his own extremely skillfully. For all his apparent arrogance though, rest assuredthat this is someone who is his own worst critic, who sets impossibly high standards for himselfand can even be shy. The Moon in close proximity to his natal Saturn reveals that his emotional control is as strictlycontrolled as his public image; but what you see is not necessarily what you get. Although heopenly flirts with Paula Abdul, assiduously cultivates an image of being a ladies man and is seento be in a relationship with Terri Seymour, rumors persist about Mr Cowell's sexual persuasion.Astrological correspondences simply cannot denote whether someone is gay for that's a matter ofpersonal choice. What is revealed with this birthchart is that with Mars conjunct the Sun in Libra,sextile from experimental Uranus, this person is likely to be charismatic -- to members of bothsexes. Combine this with Venus conjunct Pluto and, well, let's just say, I'm sure Simon Cowell hasgreat success in the 'lurve' department but probably ensures his lover hangs up his/her clothesand signs the Official Secrets Act before any encounter. With Mars in the sign of Venus, which isitself in the sign of Mercury, this tells us he probably prefers his lovers to be slightly androgynouslooking, youthful, and clean! He'll be particularly attracted to exotic looking women (Moon Sag). Here's a man who is literally idolised because he embodies the societal dream for fame andriches. However before those who aren't desirous of 'fools gold' rush to pledge their distaste forthe Man, let me just conclude by saying that without Simon Cowell in this world, a large proportionof the population would still equate candor with social and business suicide. Cowell has shown there is another way. If only politicians could see that truth is a bitter butnecessary pill, and doesn't preclude adoration, then he will have done us all a great service andmoved us a step closer towards a more honest society. In this respect he truly has become apowerful truth idol of our times! Kathryn Cassidy writes on a variety of topics on her blogs A longer version of this article can beviewed at collaboratingwithfate.blogspot.com along with many more astrological articles.
