Sun in Virgo, Moon in Scorpio: “This article will self destruct in five seconds”

February 16th, 2012 No comments

Editor’s Note, 10/30/2012: Make sure to also check out the following article on Virgo/Scorpio:

Sun in Virgo, Moon in Scorpio: The Super Spy and the Special Educator, the Smartly Dressed Detective and the Secretly Sexy Librarian

__________________________________________________________________________________________

Oriented to details, Virgo is considered the Analyst of the Zodiac. Oriented to secrets, Scorpio is the Covert Operative of the Zodiac. The combination of a detail oriented Virgo Sun with the clandestine instincts of Scorpio Moon makes for a Sun/Moon pairing uniquely suited for detective work, detailed analysis, and forensic research.

What I’ve discovered doing this Sun/Moon profiles is that inevitably the articles themselves take on the characteristics of that Sun/Moon pairing. An article on an Aries/Gemini will be short, sweet, and have a rapid fire “rat-a-tat-tat” quality to it while an article on a Cancer/Pisces will involve imagery, photography, and watery realms both physical and emotional. This article is on Virgo/Scorpio so it’s going to assign you the *job* (Virgo) of getting to the bottom of a *mystery* (Scorpio) by way of forensic research (Virgo) and detailed analysis (Virgo):

Your mission dear reader, should you decide to accept it, is to determine the true astrological identity of the Central Intelligence Agency.

As usual, if you or any of your cohorts are caught viewing these materials at work or on any publicly accessible computers the author will have no choice but to disavow any knowledge of your actions. Good luck.

According to Astro.com, the CIA was created (born) on July 26th, 1947. (Source) This makes it a Leo Sun, Scorpio Moon. Astro.com says their birthdate for the agency has a Roden Rating of “A” which means it’s considered to be quite accurate. But, as with the work the agency does, things are not always as they seem.

I’m going to have to go out on a limb here and say I think they’ve got the wrong birthday. July 26th, 1947 is the day President Eisenhower signed the National Security Act of 1947. The provisions of the act – which included the creation of the CIA – specifically did not take effect until September 18th of that year. (Source) The July 26th date could thus be analogized to the public announcement of an upcoming event with the actual event not occurring until almost a month later. If a couple, for instance, announced their wedding on July 26th but said “Our actual wedding will take place on September 18th” we would use September 18th as the wedding’s date of birth for astrological purposes.

Furthermore, on its official website the CIA lists its date of creation as September 18th, 1947. (Source) This makes the agency a Virgo Sun, Scorpio Moon. (Chart)

Leo or Virgo: “Lights, camera, action” or Quiet and Anonymous Analysis?

More importantly, if we analyze the behavior of the agency it becomes quite clear that it is expressing as a Virgo Sun, Scorpio Moon not a Leo Sun, Scorpio Moon.

On July 26th, 1947, Eisenhower (The King, Leo = the King) signed an act on stage, in full view of the public (Leo loves the stage) that involved the creation of a host of clandestine (Scorpio) agencies. Take a look at the photo of Eisenhower signing the document. It was a big media day for its time complete with “lights, camera, action!” and even an audience, all the things you’d expect from an event with its sun in Leo:

Eisenhower signed the National Security Act on July 26th 1947 but the CIA itself was not born until September 18th, 1947

Most of what the CIA does is “analysis” (Virgo) of intelligence regarding secrets (Scorpio), not public performances (Leo). Looking through bank accounts, sifting through emails, pouring over satellite photos to find minor anomalies that may lead to larger conspiracies is the type of detail oriented work that Virgo eats for breakfast. Hand that type of work to a textbook Leo and he’d be bored out of his mind and running to his hairdresser by lunchtime.

The public may think of the agency as high profile (Leo) but the reality is much more mundane (Virgo). Very little of the agency’s resources, proportionally speaking, goes into the type of public media displays associated with the zodiac’s most brightly theatrical sign. The agency has sought to influence public opinion by way of journalists (a Virgoan profession) but in a fashion far more consistent with Virgo’s preference for working behind the scenes than Leo’s desire to be center stage. (See NY Times article “The Mighty Wurlitzer” for more on this)

The agency also frowns upon “show offs” in its ranks in favor of “quiet professionals” who prefer to remain anonymous. Virgo Sun is perfectly happy to do its job quietly and competently. Leo Sun is many things but “quiet and anonymous” it is not. To illustrate: Actress Jennifer Lopez is a Leo Sun, Scorpio Moon native and a very representative one at that. Can you imagine her ever going anywhere or doing anything while remaining “quiet and anonymous”?

Virgo Sun, Scorpio Moon Dark Side: “Everything and everybody has a price . . .”

According to astrologer Liz Greene, the dark side of Virgo’s high standards is the mentality that “everything and everybody has a price”. Leo’s shadow, on the other hand, is pomp and bombast. If you’re at all familiar with agency’s history it’s clear that the Virgoan shadow of “everything and everybody having a price” is very much the modus operandi of its more infamous episodes. In Operation Ajax (1953), for instance, the agency dispatched Kermit Roosevelt Jr. to Iran with little more than a briefcase full of cash knowing that bribes were all that was needed to overthrow the democratically elected Mohammad Mosaddegh.

The real reason the agency overthrew Mosaddegh? He made the mistake of insisting that Anglo-American oil interests pay relatively small royalties (20%) on the petroleum they withdrew from Iran’s oil fields. Virgo, the dark side of which is associated with “the Hustler” archetype, is much more likely to haggle over price than showy Leo.

Furthermore, from the perspective of the American people, the coup was pulled off very quietly and efficiently (Virgo) with little to none of the pomp and bombast associated with the dark side of a Leo Sun.

So both the public record (the agency’s website) and the nature of the work it does indicate it is much more likely to be a Virgo Sun, Scorpio Moon than a Leo Sun, Scorpio Moon.

Astro-Twins: The Central Intelligence Agency and the Impossible Mission Force

One of the CIA’s astro-twins is none-other than the hit 1960s television series Mission Impossible starring Peter Graves as the chief of the “Impossible Mission Force”. The show debuted (was born) September 17th, 1966 making it a Virgo Sun, Scorpio Moon just like the CIA. (Chart) The second season of the show even included an episode entitled “The Astrologer”. No joke:

According to astrologers Suzi and Charles Harvey, the Virgo Sun, Scorpio Moon individual is “the observant artisan whose quiet concentration and industry is respected and emulated by many.” (Source) I’d say that’s a pretty good one sentence summary of the original Mission Impossible series. One of the smartest and most respected series in television history, it’s been emulated by many but matched by none. Four decades after the show disappeared from the airwaves the truth about the astrological identity of its real life astro-twin the Central Intelligence Agency can now be revealed.
