Mackenzie Phillips: FRAUD
Phillips asserts that she was first raped by her father after a night of boozing and taking drugs with him, and after that continued an ongoin sexual relationship for years until, as a married woman, she had reason to believe she was pregnant by him, and aborted the baby. According to her, this effectively ended their incestuous affair.
Of course, the big problem about all this, is that her father is not able to refute or even speak to any of this, as he’s DEAD, and curiously enough, only her younger sister seems to support her; all the other family members don’t or are standoffish on the matter.
So-could astrology give us some clues as to whether Phillips’ claims are indeed legit? Afterall, given that Oprah seems to have problems getting guests who’s stories are straight, and given that Phillips herself has had a long record of drug addiction (read, NOT the most reliable source of information), it makes sense to check in with the horoscope to see if it tallies with the party line.
According to Astro Databank, Mackenize Phillips was born on Nov 10 1959 9.35PM EST Alexandria VA; Placidus 26 Can 54.
Our eye is drawn immediately to two major areas of Phillips’ chart-the Cancer Asc, and the 4 house. In both cases, it is an indication that familial themes loom large in Phillips life one way or another, and upon further inspection we see that Neptune in 4 does indeed speak to Phillips’ "strange family ways"-for example, she was exposed to drugs, by her father, at a very early age. This Neptune placement, also reflects the artistic nature of the family; moreover, study has consistently shown that Neptune angular or in some other way prominent in the horoscope almost always correlates with those who windup working on stage or in movies, in music or in some other way the arts.
But does any of this speak to "incest"? From what I’ve seen over the years, I don’t think so, and here’s why: I have found that womn and youn girls who were sexually assaulted almost always tend to have Mars and Pluto very active in the chart, usually in terms of hard aspect, and often connected to the following houses: 1-7, 5-11, or 4-10. In Phillips’ case, we note that Mars is indeed the ruler of the 10 house (father) and in the 4 in Scorpio-however, it doesn’t make any aspect to Pluto, who just happens to be in he 2 house (money???). Pluto however, does aspect Phillips’ Mercury-Jupiter conjunction in Sagittarius in the 5 house, squaring both.
As any first year astrology student knows well, Mercury-Jupiter aspects are usually known for its tendency to over-exaggerate things. And here, with this conjunction in the 5 house (sex), we can see the possibility of Phillips stretching the truth or even outright making stuff up outta wholecloth, to SELL BOOKS. Why do I say that?
Well, aside from the aforementioned 2 house Pluto squaring the 5 house Mercury-Jupiter conjunction, we also note that Phillips’ Moon is in Aries and in the 9 house-and at the Aries Point to boot. This is a promoter like nobody’s business, and Phillips has been doing just that of late. The 9 house of course, represents publishing of all kinds, hence the appearance of her book, just in time for the recent transit of Pluto squaring this all-important position.
BUT, with transit Saturn about to head into Libra, and opposing her Arian Moon, some hard questioning (3 house) is sure to come, and indeed we’re starting to hear murmers already as to the veracity of Phillips’ statements.
So, as Saturn dips its toe into Libra for the rest of this year, and the early part of next year, and then return for good in the early fall of next year as well, it will be very, very interesting to see how Phillips holds up under the mounting pressure with regard to her allegations of sexual abuse at the hands of her father. Saturn and Pluto acting in tandem on a central point in the horoscope is usally not a very pleasant thing. And it doesn’t augur well for making money either.
Talk about reaping what you’ve sown...whew...
