Rebellion and Independence
Amanda Palmer’s eccentricity and even electricity, shine thru
this song and video. A true free spirit and nemesis of the status
quo. A blatant embodiment of Uranus energy.
Dominant Planets: Uranus, Mercury, Moon
Amanda clearly rebels from the typical “feminine role”
(part of lyrics)
You can tell
From the scars on my arms
And the cracks in my hips
the dents in my car
And the blisters on my lips
That I’m not the carefullest of girls
The energy of the video, like her Uranus dominant personality, is frenzied. The Uranus mind is intuitive and inspired. Uranians, as the precursor of Saturn bring much needed balance to the structure and control of the former. These people are in touch with the logos of chaos. And are given to flashes of genius. Open and limitless, they are indeed divergent, non linear thinkers. When inspired, their minds appear to be in a constant flash and disarray, but it is because they are highly mental, creative, and intuitive beings; sensing much possibilities in the eternal pool of consciousness. The ideas come from every direction, driven them well, mad.
They have a hard time adjusting to societal rules and expectations, because they are the iconoclast of the zodiac. Their mission is to provide madness; divine madness. Red pill? Wine of the gods? self- Ignition…
Dissonant, she feels she is born in the wrong era, and thus, out of chronological order. It’s as if she belongs to the future but was born in the past. That is to say, Uranus people are typically ahead of their time.
As a result she defies societal norms repeatedly in this song. For example in her lyrics she claims she’ll join only as a
doubtful guest or on rare occasion. See another Uranian here
Removed as a Cesarean
Extreme defiance of authority. For example, she questions cesarean delivery,
a topic that is still controversial to this day.
Uranus dominants challenge the establishment because they long for
advancement, but authorities typically stagnate and hinder their progress. C’mon Saturn (Cronos)? Stop eating your offspring.
These authorities are seen in Saturn, the planet of control, borders and regulations. (The old man misses his young self.)
Saturn is the conservative counterpart to Uranus’ liberal view. When Saturn turns toxic and antiquated, they no longer serve society.
That’s were, the Uranus dominant come in, bringing forth much needed chaos to fuel a revolution.
Uranus is the bearer of the new, both awakening and refreshing society in that of an instantant. It shocks and electrifies.
In short, these people are dissidents, rebels, and renegades.
Their astral duty is to keep the establishment in check. Challenge structures and re-new.
They balance out Saturn’s dry, sometimes boring rigid control.
