We’re in the middle of a Mercury Retrograde so for writers like myself it’s a time to “re”-vist, “re”-vise, and “re”-publish older articles. One of the first, and still one of the most popular, articles on this site is the profile of Aquarius Sun, Capricorn Moon native Michael C. Ruppert published last fall. (Original Article) If Mike Ruppert’s name doesn’t ring a bell, he was the former LAPD police officer who helped blow the whistle on the CIA’s involvement in narcotics trafficking during the 1980s. Watch the first few minutes of this clip to see Ruppert’s 1996 confrontation with then director of the CIA John Duetch:

The Aquarius Sun, Capricorn Moon combination is a great one for revolutionaries as it combines the humanitarian identity of an Aquarius Sun with the strategic instincts of a Capricorn Moon. Astrologer Bill Tierney writes of this combination’s social leanings:

Those of us with these energies highlighted in our charts are very much activists at heart . . . We’re willing to become involved in community affairs by supporting groups and organizations that bravely advocate fresh ideals that challenge mainstream thinking and social conformity. Our sense of civic duty is usually strong . . . (Source)

Abraham Lincoln and Rosa Parks are both Aquarius Sun, Capricorn Moon natives who, similar to Mike Ruppert, exhibited very well developed “senses of civic duty” coupled with the “brave advocacy of fresh ideals” regarding community affairs.

Ruppert has a few other astro-twins worth “re”-visiting during this retrograde period. The first is the 1988 film Stand and Deliver starring Edward James Olmos as the revolutionary high school math teacher Jaime Escalante. Using its premier at the 1988 Miami Film Festival as its date of birth, the film is an Aquarius Sun, Capricorn Moon just like Mike Ruppert, Abraham Lincoln, and Rosa Parks. (Chart)

Ruppert’s other Aquarius Sun, Capricorn Moon astro-twin worth mentioning is musician, mystic, and multi-faceted troublemaker Henry Rollins. (Chart) A legend in the punk rock scene, Rollins has made a near second career out of advocating for revolutionary causes. According to his Wikipedia entry, “Rollins has campaigned for various political causes in the United States, including promoting LGBT rights, World Hunger Relief, and an end to war in particular . . .” (Source) Here’s a video of Rollins going off on Halliburton style privatization in a manner very similar to many of Mike Ruppert’s lectures:

Astrologer Jefferson Anderson tell us that Aquarius Sun, Capricorn Moon natives, “often have a gleam in their eyes that hints at either genius or madness.” (Source) Whether risking your big-gig tv show speaking out against Halliburton like Henry Rollins did or risking your life blowing the whistle on CIA narcotics trafficking like Mike Ruppert did, you’d have to be a bit “mad” to do some of the things natives of this pairing often end up doing.
