Singer, enormous celebrity, and poster child for the results of poor parenting Justin Bieber is once again in legal trouble, this time for smacking his ATV into a minivan and starting a dustup with someone in his hometown of Stratford, Canada.
(An aside: both Justin Bieber and myself are Canadians. In general we have a reputation for being peaceful and polite. But have you noticed that no matter how you slice up the human pie, there’s always that one guy who screws it up for the rest? Justin Bieber is “that one guy” for Canada.)
I wrote about Justin here back in January, and at that time he was facing some problems, but I urged him to contact me so I could warn him about the potential even more difficult stuff ahead. Despite my best efforts, he did not contact me about this. Justin, you really need to get yourself better social media people to keep an eye on these things, okay?
So now, instead of a stern warning, it’s time to deliver a preview of bad news yet to come.
It’s a little too easy to look at Justin’s chart and say “Sun in Pisces and Moon in Libra: he’s unrealistic and his friends lead him astray.” You can look at the same Sun/Moon combination in Michael Caine or Rudolph Nureyev or Sydney Poitier and find good things to say about it. And if you’re having a bad day, you could point out the similarity to Joseph Mengele or serial killer Aileen Wuornos. If you put your mind to it, astrology is as good as ethnicity or religion or social status as an excuse to match your preconceptions about someone.
So instead, let’s just look at the cold hard astrological facts. What is coming up for Justin Bieber on his scheduled court date, September 29?
First of all, knowing how the legal system works, we cannot assume he will actually be in court that day, or that the proceedings will be wrapped up that quickly. In fact, by the end of September, Justin is just beginning some transits that could cause him a potential world of hurt.
When it comes to facing the consequences of one’s actions, we often look to Saturn. At the end of September, Saturn will just be entering conjunction range of Bieber’s North Node, Pluto, and Ascendant. This certainly implies a strong potential for Justin to be facing some life-changing consequences (Pluto) as a result of his “karma” (North Node) or “how he comes across to people” (Ascendant). But at the end of September, Saturn is in a much closer Square to his Mercury and Mars. Mercury is the ruler of Bieber’s Midheaven, which is public image, and Mars rules aggression. So it’s not too hard to see that this particular court case of his might turn out to be a little less consequence-free than previous court cases he’s had for other bad behavior. It does not help any that Neptune will be stationing within a degree of his Saturn, which is never a good sign for maintaining order in one’s life.
But now here’s where things get interesting. That big Saturn conjunction doesn’t become exact until November-December, and thanks to a retrograde it will be back again in July-August 2015, at which time Saturn will turn direct and go forward within 1/6 of a degree of the exact conjunction to Justin’s Pluto.
Translation? The rest of the year will probably suck for Justin Bieber, but we likely ain’t seen nothing yet. That is especially the case when you consider that it is his Sun trine Jupiter in water Signs that is driving much of his excessive behavior, Uranus is exactly quincunx his Jupiter now… but thanks to the retrograde it will be making that exact aspect again in March 2015, which is also when Justin Bieber will be having his exact Jupiter square, which is a strong indicator of more excessive behavior.
Despite all this, I remain optimistic. Justin, drop me a line. There’s still hope for you yet kid.
