People in History
I have found many people of fire signs, especially Sagittarius, who I do not like. But Bradley Manning is a Sagittarius who I do not have any negative feeling toward. After I read about him on Wikipedia, I do not find anything I do not like about him. I think he is just a person with some believe and acted according to what he believed in (which is “without information, you cannot make informed decisions as a public”). He might have made mistakes in things that he has done. But it was not because he is a Sagittarius. Rather it was because of what he believed in. If you hate him, it is because you do not share his believe, not because he is a Sagittarius.
Whenever we dislike someone, it is most likely because we do not like what he/she is pursuing. People of fire signs are dedicated to achieving their goals and would try to achieve their goals by all means with less regard to code of conduct. That is why we do not like them when we do not like what they are pursuing. This may be the real reason why I do not like many people of fire signs.
By the way, Daniel Ellsberg (Goat, Aries), the most famous whistle-blower in American history whose leaking of “The Pentagon Papers” brought the Vietnam War to an end, is also a fire sign with a Chinese Zodiac sign that belongs to the fourth trine, just like Bradley Manning (Rabbit, Sagittarius).
Other people in history and celebrities who also belong to a fire sign and the fourth trine include Hugh Thompson (Goat, Aries) and Robert De Niro (Goat, Leo). They are different from people of fire signs who belong to the first trine (and perhaps second trine as well) in Chinese Zodiac, such as Don Imus (Dragon, Leo), John Galliano (Rat, Sagittarius), and Peter King (Monkey, Aries), who are prejudiced against certain people (even though they do not want to admit it). I think this is because people of fourth trine (and perhaps those of third trine as well) have more feelings for others (just as they have more feelings for themselves as well), which makes them more kind and liberal, while people of first trine and second trine are more harsh, demanding, vain, conservative, and prejudiced.
If you go by horoscope alone, you would think that Harvey Milk and Dan White should get along with each other very well and that it is likely that Dan White would have respect for Harvey Milk. However, as we all know it was the opposite. So here is another case that shows how people’s ideologies decide what they would do in their lives much more than their personalities.
Another thing this case reveals is that a lot of time, people who belong to the same trine in Chinese Zodiac and even the same element in Western Zodiac can be the biggest enemies of each other. Because they belong to the same trine in Chinese Zodiac, they fight against each other with the same amount of energy, which makes the fight fierce. And because they belong to the same element in Western Zodiac, they hate each other based on the same logic, which makes the hate intense. What makes them hate each other is what they believe in, which has nothing to do with their personalities, and so has nothing to do with their horoscope compatibility.
I have always had the impression that people of fire signs are more into self-protection and less into altruism, while people of air signs are more into altruism and less into self-protection. But Hugh Thompson and William Calley seemed to have proven the opposite in the My Lai Massacre. Did it happen because William Calley considered all villagers, regardless of their age and gender, as the enemies, while Hugh Thompson considered the villagers as friends? In fact, people of fire signs (and water signs) care a lot for people who they consider as their friends. How much of altruism a person has depends on who are considered as friends by that person. People of air signs tend to consider more people as their friends than people of fire signs. But in the My Lai Massacre, William Calley did not consider the villagers as his friends while Hugh Thompson did.
Also, people of air signs are not supposed to be the kind of people who would just follow orders. They tend to be quite independent. So I am not sure if William Calley was just following orders. But people of air signs are supposed to tell the truth as they know it. So William Calley could have told the truth as he knew it when he made the claim that he was just following orders. The truth is probably that he thought he was ordered to kill all the villagers and he himself also thought that all the villagers should be killed.
This brings me to another question. Why did William Calley think that all the villagers should be killed? I think people of air signs like William Calley killed because they thought of their victims as some kind of criminals and wanted justice against them. Another example of people of an air sign committing serial killings is the Green River Killer Gary Ridgway.
It is rumored that Lyndon Johnson ordered the JFK assassination. But I find it hard to believe from the analysis of his and JFK’s astrological signs. It is not impossible that things can happen against horoscope predictions. But I still would like to point out that as someone born in the year of the Monkey, a sign that belongs to the first trine, it is not likely that Lyndon Johnson would want to have his way so badly that he wanted to kill JFK. People of the first trine are not like people of the second and the third trine. They are more passive compared to people of the second and the third trine.
From Western astrological point of view, it is not likely that Lyndon Johnson, a Virgo (an earth sign), would despise or hate JFK, a Gemini (an air sign), so much.
By the way, Charles Nicoletti also belonged to the first trine and might have been the one who killed Marilyn Monroe. However, I think he killed her not because he disliked her but because he took the order from someone else. People of the first trine are more likely to follow others than to take the lead. The fact that he might dislike her only made it more easy for him to take the order to kill her.
Charles Nicoletti is a Dragon, a sign of the first trine. Marilyn Monroe is a Tiger, a sign of the third trine. So they are the opposite in Chinese horoscope. Charles Nicoletti is a Sagittarius, a fire sign. Marilyn Monroe is a Gemini, an air sign. So they are the opposite in Western horoscope as well. So Charles Nicoletti is someone who was more likely to have disliked Marilyn Monroe. Although as someone of a sign that belong to the first trine, it is not likely that he took the initiative to kill her, his dislike of her might have made it easy for him to take an order from someone else to kill her.
Marilyn Monroe was killed in the month of Leo (a fire sign) – the worst time for someone of an air sign, and the best time for someone of a fire sign. So Charles Nicoletti as someone of a fire sign was most likely to have succeeded in killing Marilyn Monroe at that time.
By the way, there are other historical figures who belonged to air signs that died in a month that belongs to a fire sign: JFK, FDR, Abraham Lincoln, Mozart, John Lennon. Ronald Reagan’s assassination attempt also happened in a month that belongs to a fire sign.
He is a Virgo born in the year of the Tiger. In other words, he belongs to an earth sign and the third trine, exactly like Michael Jackson (Dog, Virgo). People who belong to an earth sign and the third trine are the most independent and rebellious. They are the least likely to show respect for authority.
This reminds me of why Michael Jackson did not accept an invitation by Obama to his inauguration earlier this year.
Other people in history who belong to an earth sign and the third trine: Karl Marx (Tiger, Taurus), Ho Chi Minh (Tiger, Taurus), Harvey Milk (Horse, Taurus), Mother Teresa (Dog, Virgo). What do they have in common? They led a movement and they fought for the weak, which reminds me of Jesus. Based on what we know about Jesus, I guess he also belonged to an earth sign and the third trine. And since he was born in the winter, it is most likely that he was a Capricorn born in year of the Tiger (the very end of 7 BC or the very beginning of 6 BC).
Living political figure Lyndon LaRouche (Dog, Virgo) and many public servants and politicians such as Eric Holder (Tiger, Capricorn), David Paterson (Horse, Taurus), Chris Christie (Tiger, Virgo), Byron Dorgan (Horse, Taurus), Richard Shelby (Dog, Taurus), and Harold Ford (Dog, Taurus) also belong to an earth sign and the third trine. But I am not sure about their legacy.
Three famous living persons who belong to an earth sign and the third trine who have had great impact in modern American society are Michael Moore (Horse, Taurus), Oliver Stone (Dog, Virgo), Tim Russert (Tiger, Taurus). Jerry Seinfeld (Horse, Taurus) is also very famous. But I am not sure if he is influential.
Three other well known living persons who belong to an earth sign and the third trine have had significant impact on the US economy: Robert Rubin (Tiger, Virgo), Warren Buffett (Horse, Virgo), and Bernie Madoff (Tiger, Taurus).
There are well known people who belong to an earth sign and the third trine whose legacy I am not sure about: Dan White (Dog, Virgo) and Rush Limbaugh (Tiger, Capricorn).
I think for those who belong to an earth sign and the third trine that are in politics, there is one word that applies to most of them: “controversial”. There are two other words that apply to some of them: “revolutionary”, and “ideology-driven”.
They did not just die in similar ways. They both belong to an earth sign and they were both born in the year of the Dog.
People who belong to the third trine like to take the lead, and tend to be constantly trying something new. That is why they are more likely to succeed in entertainment.
People of earth signs are independent. So the arts they create are more original. Also, they love to pursue, and are very hard working. That is why they can make it big in entertainment.
This is a discussion brought up by an article on ABC News: “Psychology of Virginia Tech, Columbine Killers Still Baffles Experts“. It is brought up in this month of Aries because three major mass shootings (Columbine, Virginia Tech, and Binghamton) and the Oklahoma City Bombing happened in this month of Aries.
According to this article, some mass killers are psychopaths while others are psychotics. A psychopath is a person with an antisocial personality disorder, manifested in aggressive, perverted, criminal, or amoral behavior without empathy or remorse (see thefreedictionary.com). A psychotic is a person affected by psychosis, which is a severe mental disorder characterized by derangement of personality and loss of contact with reality and causing deterioration of normal social functioning (see thefreedictionary.com).
Psychopaths often belong to fire signs. For example, Hitler is a psychopath, and he belongs to a fire sign. They have their own moral standard and stick to it. For them, some people just don’t deserve to be loved or respected.
Psychotics are more likely to belong to earth signs. They are honest people who work hard and expect fair treatments, which they don’t always receive because they do not manipulate other people. They kill out of a desire for fairness.
Also, some people kill because they enjoy cruelty, while others kill because they want to revenge for the cruelty that they have received. People who belong to the fourth trine in Chinese zodiac, such as Seung-Hui Cho and Jiverly Wong, are more likely to kill out of revenge because they are willing to put up with a lot of abuses before they try to push back. People who belong to the second trine in Chinese zodiac, such as Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, are more likely to kill out of a desire to assert their control over others.
As I read the story of Queen Anne’ tragic life, I thought of a lot of women who had been murdered by their husbands when their husbands were having affairs with other women. Most women are not unlucky enough to end up being killed by their husbands. But the lives of a lot of women and their children have been made much more miserable because of their husbands’ affairs. So I would like to share my opinions on what kind of women are more likely to run into this kind of problems and how they can avoid it.
They are women who are more intelligent, follow their wisdom more than their passion, and more likely to impose their wills on their men. If their men are of the emotionally controlling type, they are likely to get into a lot of conflicts with their men, and their men are likely to look for other women. This is because their men do not feel being loved by them but feel being restricted by them. Some of these men would go to the extreme of committing murder if they could not get what they desire.
If a woman wants to avoid getting into this kind of trouble and even getting killed, she should be very sensitive to the state of her relationship with her man. If there are quite a lot of conflicts between her and her man, she should leave him. She should not think too much of what she is going to lose and should try to avoid getting into a fight at all cost. Most people are likely to make the mistake of trying to win to feel getting even. But there is no way both sides can win.
Men who are emotionally controlling prefer women who follow their passion more than their wisdom and less likely to impose their wills on others. If a woman is the intelligent, logical type, she should stay away from those men. By the way, just to help those who are more likely to get into this kind of trouble, I would like to let you know my observation that older women, women with darker hair color, and women of air signs (libra, gemini, and aquarius) and earth signs (virgo, taurus, and capricorn) tend to follow their wisdom more than their passion, and are more likely to impose their wills on others. They are less entertaining to this kind of men compared to other women. So they should stay away from this kind of men. Also, I have noticed that men who succeed in the kind of careers that require routine dealing with large number of people, such as business and politics, are more likely to be of the emotionally controlling type. And I have found that they are more likely to be of the water signs (scorpio, cancer, and pisces) and the fire signs (sagittarius, leo, and aries).
