Johnny Knoxville, you know the guy who was arrested in January 2009 at Los Angeles International Airport for carrying an inert grenade in his back pack, has a Piscean brand of idiot humor. The more intellectual of us might classify it as borderline masochistic, others just plain daft. Born on the 11th March 1971 in Tennessee with a whole bunch of dare devil atoms dancing around his DNA, Johnny developed a gift for taking on the physical challenges of every day machinery, i.e. ski lifts, shopping trolleys, motorbikes, golf mobiles, exercise bikes, or quite simply down the gym. Just so you know, diving into a swimming pool perched on top of a motorbike might seem simple, but it would take expertise to not get severely injured. Johnny would have practiced for hours, in that slapstick, senseless mode of his. Some might say this guy is round the bend.
We say that perhaps one of his youthful visions was to become a big name in the Guinness Book of Records; in any event he more than amuses us, and obviously himself, with his wacko shenanigans; he is not the kind of guy one would want around during a darts throwing contest down your local however. He was, he says, inspired by Jack Kerouac’s “On the Road” initially, which he says pushed him towards acting. He moved to California to learn the craft after high school, and began writing and pitching his ideas to magazines. He flunked out of a scholarship at the American Academy of Dramatic Art, probably wanting to go for a style of method acting that did not go down too well with his tutors! A self harm style of method acting. “Jackass”, one of the most popular shows in the USA, was his true breakthrough, no pun intended!
Other than the sight of him and his mates breaking hips, noses, cheekbones etc and getting knocked unconscious on a regular basis, the show is fun to watch. It is in fact a gathering together of the wildest stunts, a sort of barmy mix match of candid camera and a war zone – it has our mouths hanging open. The warning always is “Do not do this at home without parents’, friends’ husbands, or in fact anyone’s permission.” Nobody but Johnny Knoxville would even consider doing that stuff any way. Some of the more caring amongst us might worry about his mental health, and wonder why anybody would want to act out dangerously outrageous pranks other than for the money? But seriously, we do not think it is the dollar that drives Johnny on, it is his need to express outside the normal “channels” of communication.
He wants to rattle our cages with “outlandish”, takes on life, to help us realise the idiocy inherent in shopping trips, golfing weekends, most sports activities, and a simple walk in the park. So when it comes to warnings, our first word of warning is do not be fooled by Johnny Knoxville, he is definitely not what he seems. He is an extremely friendly fellow, for starters, who has decided to express a certain side of his character, the weird side, but generally he is not quite as startling. He likes softness and gentleness in fact, one could say he has a wonderful communication gift and can be wise, sweet and loving to the ladies. With Venus in Aquarius he can even act out a mythic hero, a gentle lover, an idealized soul mate role with ease.
His wife Melanie filed for a divorce after 12 years of marriage. Perhaps that Venus in Aquarian need of his to detach from the intensity of a “one on one” relationship, and look for stimulus outside of a relationship, could have been the reason for the breakup. But Johnny loves his daughter Madison and is a caring dad. Yes, this is the truth; believe it or not his Piscean qualities include sensitivity and caring. But as far as romantic relationships are concerned, one with him could be described in a single word “uncertainty!” Mercury in Pisces would encourage the “clowning around!” bit quite excessively. You see, Johnny lives in a parallel universe where his fantasies demand a voice. His seemingly senseless pranks form part of a set of weird ideas that will express themselves consistently over the next few years. He is not convinced by the “forces that be” and could be excused for living in a parallel universe where his imaginings do not even match most other people’s. Sometimes the frustration of not being able to enact out his inner visions, will have him banging his head against the wall, hopefully with a crash helmet on.
Mars in Sagittarius pushes him towards those fanatical outdoor pursuits, like riding a shopping trolley down a mountain. If he were not a risk taker he would probably frequent the local casino. Risk taking is part and parcel of his genetic heritage, we repeat. The image of Johnny Knoxville could be distorted by his comedic tendencies, but truly there is something rather sweet, rather unique beating in his chest. He has a good heart folks, and could be classified as just a nice guy with a wacko message, which is never go shopping without a crash helmet on! On the quiet our Johnny is creating his own ethical style, living life in harmony with inner creative pulsations. He has succeeded in this task and this year the planet Neptune will encourage him to settle down and find that strong core within his emotional life. He will want stability, believe it or not.
He will work hard to accomplish more self expression through his comedy work; he might push so determined, other people could see him as hard headed. But Johnny knows that he wants to build, and he is searching for new ways to express his message. He will manage to achieve a certain peace of mind, and there is a possibility of a new relationship attracting him. One where the crash helmets and body armour is off, and he is face to face with a beautiful woman, his soul mate at last. We sense he is on his way to building a stable and rewarding life. We will keep our eye on him, obviously wearing our crash helmets!
