Sagittarius Sun, Taurus Moon: The Pirate Ship
Note: this is an entry I left out of my article on the astrology of black budget military operations which can be read at the following link:
Sagittarius Sun, Taurus Moon: “The Pirate Ship”
This patch comes from the “Desert Prowler” program, which informed observers seem to think is actually Lockheed Martin’s RQ-170 “Sentinel” unmanned drone. Using the date of its first flight as its date of birth, the RQ-170 is a Sagittarius Sun, Taurus Moon. (Chart) Sagittarius is the resident crusader of the zodiac. It’s symbolized by the half horse, half human centaur-archer armed with a quiver full of flaming arrows ready to be fired off at distant targets. Taurus is the zodiac’s primary money sign. Its animal glyph is the bull, a territorial animal that until recently was the primary symbol of value in many human cultures. Combine the Sun (identity) in the sign of overseas adventure (Sagittarius) with the Moon (emotional needs) in the sign of high value loot (Taurus) and you get a Sun/Moon pairing that makes for a swashbuckling spiritual seeker or a mercenary pirate who believes they’re on a mission from God.
Since the RQ-170 is a Sagittarius/Taurus we shouldn’t be surprised its job is to crusade (Sagittarius) for the highest value (Taurus) of the so-called “high value targets” in the war on terror. According to a 2011 NY Times article, an RQ-170 drone deployed over Osama Bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan prior to his death. (Source) Sagittarius/Taurus is also known to be a gambler. If loitering over a place like Pakistan, a highly volatile country that possesses a large stockpile nuclear weapons, doesn’t count as a major “gamble” I’m not sure what does.
Astrologer Noel Tyl says this pairing’s “idealistic energies are channeled into business structures built to serve society”. (Source) Ultimately the RQ-170′s energies are channeled into the profit margins of aerospace company Lockheed Martin, one of the biggest defense related “business structures” in modern society.
This pairing often has a sixth sense that allows them to spot rich food, fine fabrics, and well-aged wine from miles away. This is true even when the Sagittarius/Taurus in question is an unmanned aerial vehicle with nothing but 1s and 0s running through its senses, at least in a manner of speaking. To illustrate: the Times article cites independent experts who believe the RQ-170 can carry “sensors that can detect radioactive isotopes and other chemicals that can give away nuclear research” from miles away.

Strange Coincidence #1: actor Samuel Jackson is also a Sagittarius Sun, Taurus Moon. (Chart) Jackson’s starred in wide range of films but his signature role will always be that of “Jules Winnfield”, the bible quoting philosopher hitman he played to great effect in the 1994 film Pulp Fiction:
In Pulp Fiction, Jackson’s character is on a crusade (Sagittarius) through the streets of Los Angeles for the ultimate high value (Taurus) target: a suitcase that belongs to mafia boss Marcellus Wallace. His energies are thus channeled into the business structures of his boss’s crime empire, not totally unlike the way the energies of the RQ-170 are channeled into the business structures of the defense industry. Of course by the end of the film his character has gone from being a mercenary pirate to something of a spiritual seeker. A computerized drone like the RQ-170 is unlikely to experience a similar transformation.
Strange Coincidence #2: Actor Ricardo Montalban is a Sagittarius/Taurus. (Chart) Montalban has starred in a wide variety of roles but it was his portrayal of war criminal Khan Noonien Singh in the 1982 film Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan that’s widely considered his most compelling performance:
In the film Montalban’s character hijacks a heavily armed starship and goes on a vengeance fueled crusade (Sagittarius) for the “Genesis Device”, an extremely high-value (Taurus) piece of technology that is to the fictional exo-politics of Star Trek what oil pipelines and opium poppies are to the very real geopolitics of Central Asia.
