“Why not just tell people I’m an alien from Mars. Tell them I eat live chickens and do a voodoo dance at midnight!” For some, Virgo sun sign, Michael Jackson is indeed an E.T, for others a plastic surgery freak. He might say he is a Peter Pan look-alike, there is no doubt he is phenomenal show biz talent whose eccentricity has shocked many to the core. Michael Jackson’s originality is indisputable. He was said to have slept in a hyperbaric oxygen chamber, but he has vehemently denied this. One could believe anything, especially seeing his moonwalk routine enchants the most severe of his critics. The guy’s performances are superlative, his voice beautiful and very particular, expressive and emotive. But why has he dedicated a great percentage of his life to skin whitening, even though he insists he suffers from vitiligo! Are all these blatant “wacco” rumours, just part of his showmanship style then?
His Piscean moon shows him frightened, timid, and a recluse, even though an undisputed King of Pop. He was born on the 29th August 1958; twenty-nine, by the way, is not the luckiest of numbers. Now all of you lot born on the 29th do not get into a tail spin, the situation can be far less fraught if combined with a positive astro picture, but in Michael’s case we have convoluted and stressful planetary configurations especially regarding relationships with the human race, starting off with his own father. His dad was more than responsible for a terrified boy growing into a confused man. Imagine your own father entering an open window wearing a Scream mask, just to teach you not to leave the window open at night! When interviewed by Oprah, Michael wept behind his hand, still obviously traumatised by the abuse. The shock resonates deep within him, beats to the rhythm of his life no doubt about it.
So, how could he have overcome trauma to become such a successful entertainer? Well, as we pointed out, Michael is a Virgo, a grounded, earth sign; hardworking, dedicated, truly talented and sometimes inspirational. But his true blue ally would have to be his Mercury in Leo. It gives him the courage to stand up for his life, be counted, and continue on against all odds. Yet, as we said, we cannot exclude complex astro aspects, due to an excessive dash of Piscean that comes with suffering. His moon makes him compassionate, yes, he wants to be a philanthropist, he wants to help this planet’s hurt and weary, especially children, but when he must roll up his sleeves, participating hands on, Michael feels he fails short of the task, even though he has channelled a great deal of publicity and finances for the suffering. He co-wrote “We are the World” with Lionel Ritchie, and raised millions of dollars for the famine in Africa. He also founded the “Heal The World Foundation” in 1992 for hurt and poor kids.
He would invite them to his ranch, and his theme park rides, and was quite harshly judged by the media as a result. Yet the foundation sent millions of dollars around the globe to help children. But still, notwithstanding these achievements, Michael cannot live in peace; his private Wonderland is the only place that feels normal to him. We are sure he did not marry Lisa Marie Presley to feel normal however. He married her because she was a twin soul, the daughter of Elvis, and had suffered from an unusually lonely childhood. They connected when he was going through child abuse allegations, and she became his confidante, helping him get over the shock and the defamation of character. Lisa always maintained it was a normal bond, but two years later they divorced remaining friends. Mars in Taurus shows Michael had a strong attraction to Lisa and their love life would have been vibrant.
We must try not to be bamboozled by his mask like face, a way of protecting himself from the onslaught of injustice, abuse, and his perception of a critical and judgmental media. Yes he is scared by life and challenge, but no, he is not a coward. So who is Michael Jackson after all? He is certainly not an E.T, rather a gentleman, clearly a victim of child abuse both on his own skin and through what some perceive to be his own actions. His true resilience shows no matter how wounded he feels, his gifted energies win through, energies that will, and have, carried him forwards through more than his share of trials and tribulations. His own worst enemy is his true node in Libra. It would make him push others away when they try to help, retire within himself yearning for balance and harmony. Liable to self-defensive attitudes, insecure perceptions, afraid of other’s assessments, he makes life difficult for himself. But remember, his transformation into a ghoul in Thriller did not really scare anyone. He was always our Michael, the screwball genius galvanizing his girl “Honey I am not like other guys” he said in that mini horror movie.
Yes, weird, perhaps, lonely, grief stricken, but harmless. Spirit shows us his lesson is to turn away from his past, let go of the abuse and accept his true goodness, that goodness so many of us see seeping through wonderful artistic gifts above and beyond his deep shame, a shame he hides from view. Nelson George summed up Jackson ‘ “The grace, the aggression, the growling, the natural boyishness, the falsetto, the smoothness—that combination of elements mark him as a major vocalist” and a phenomenal entertainer in our book. The next couple of years he will find himself involved emotionally. He could allow himself to fall in love unexpectedly or at least consider the prospect of linking up to a beloved one in his life. She will be an unusual person, not as unusual as he, but enough to keep him enthralled. And she will not care about his reputation, his honors, his 13 Grammy awards, etc. She will care about Michael, the greatest “Thriller” in popular culture today. We cannot wait to hear your news Michael!
