July 5, 2019: A Few Astro-Notes re: Stranger Things season 3
Since season 3 of Netflix's popular series Stranger Things opens with a date of November 6, 1983 I became curious and took the liberty of setting up a horoscope without a location because the story is set in the imaginary town of "Hawkins" Indiana. Yet a few intriguing planetary factors are available to us in the form of midpoint pictures on that day (I'm using 12:00 am because why not?) to see if they're applicable to the storyline or not, plus, the Prenatal Solar Eclipse series in which the show's opening date falls is instructive particularly because it's the 3 North which repeated on July 2, 2019 @10Can37 ! So with 3N's themes operative now (as season 3 begins and contains references to America's Independence Day fireworks), I'll add the eclipse's theme below the November 6, 1983 midpoint pictures which formed on the day the series' continuing story begins. Midpoint pictures are listed in random order.
Also of interest may be the day's primary Sun-Moon blend of conscious-unconscious energies (Sun Scorpio; Moon enters Sagittarius at 1:09 am est, a blend shared natally by Pablo Picasso whose warlike, chaotic painting Guernica you see above):
November 6, 1983 Midpoint Pictures: any, all, or none may apply
Moon-Neptune = Jupiter (@13Sag26): fantasy; abundant powers of imagination; compassion. Note that the Moon-Neptune duo relates to such things as 'strange notions, the danger of being exposed to peculiar and strange influences, inner vision, illusions, psychometry, vivid dreams, disturbed consciousness or awareness, low-grade spiritism, mediumship and fortune-telling'.
Neptune-Pluto = Moon (00Sag00): strange soul experiences; high sensitivity; supernatural experiences; an immediate response to every influence; a strange or peculiar woman.
Mercury-Neptune = Uranus (7Sag48): a suddenly stepped up power of imagination; inspirations, inventions; ideas; a suddenly misguided imagination; convulsive disturbances of the nervous system.
Mercury-Pluto = Saturn (7Sco53): exposure to heavy and bitter attacks; skepticism; nervous irritation through over-work.
Mars-Uranus = Pluto (00Sco00): a higher power; force; violent intervention.
Hopefully these notes aren't spoilers for those who've yet to watch S3!
Themes of Season 3's 3 North Solar Eclipse June 11, 1983 @19Gem42
News involving young people of that transforms a situation and causes worry or obsession; large plans are wanted which can be positive but 'don't get carried away' (you may recognize 3 North as the Prenatal Eclipse series of the WTC 9/11/01 attacks).
Cosmic Weather of November 6, 1983: Sun Scorpio-Moon Sagittarius
This steamy Water-Fire combination of energies suggests those who are quick to see the larger implications of facts and events. Loyal friendships are implied along with a strong commitment to inner values; paranoia is a possibility as are fanaticism, a zeal for truth, and deep intuition. This blend's two 'Images for Integration' seem to me especially descriptive: "Picasso's Guernica (pictured, above)...and...
A child gazes up at the night sky, captivated by the mystery of dark space. An alien appears, and reveals a glimpse of the child's future as a famous astro-physicist." (Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Charles and Suzi Harvey).
So Whose Minds 'Invented' This Amazing Netflix Series?
Stranger Things is written and directed by the Duffer Brothers, twins born February 15, 1984 under the auspices of a 3 South Solar Eclipse @11Sag46 (December 4, 1983) with themes of 'traumatic transformation' via Pluto content and 'sudden endings possibly with a young person through news received or short journeys undertaken' (ex: 'Billy'?). And since Matt and Ross Duffer were born after season 3's opening date of November 6, 1983, their natal Uranus @13Sag07, erratic planet of futurism, odd or unusual happenings, disruption, and/or separation, qualifies as a transit to the 1983 Jupiter position (13Sag29) which suggests broadened intellectual horizons, genius, unusual types of training, travel, and/or heading down entirely new paths. Synchronistically, and personalized to them, a solar eclipse in the 3 South series will again manifest on December 26, 2019 @4Capricorn06 conjunct protective Jupiter (5Cap20) which by transit happens to conjoin the Moon's Saturnian South Node (8Cap22), aka, the tail of the dragon, an undulating 'tail' which can have a nasty habit of swiping things away like some sort of hideous alien creature most often found in a sci-fi/horror fan's worst nightmare.
