I’m more into predictive astrology and synastry but the other day I sparked my own interest when tweeting about Charlie Sheens natal Sun conjunct Uranus. Forgive me one other post will follow this about Denise Richards as per a request.
Last week I quoted Charlie Sheen on Twitter
“I’m tired of pretending like I’m not special. I’m tired of pretending like I’m not bitchin’, a total freakin’ rock star from Mars.”
He has natal Sun conjunct Uranus
In Astrologer Adrian Ross Duncan’s book Astrology Transformation and Empowerment his chapter entitled Sun-Uranus visiting Planet Earth he writes
People with this aspect “tend to zoom out and view things dispassionately as if they were from outer space (and some complain that they feel as if they are)”
I began to wonder about Martin Sheens parenting with this aspect, not knowing much about him I would learn he was an alcoholic and not a very hands on father and to quote Emilo Etevez
“My father and mother, neither of them cared if Larry Fishburne [Sheen’s teenage co-star] and I jumped in a jitney and went to Manila for the weekend. President Marcos was in power, martial law was in effect, and you were shot on sight if you were seen on the street after 1am. What were they thinking?’ He says he recently asked his parents that very question. Their reply was, ‘We had four of you. If we had to lose one, we would. We were just trying to survive.’
The article goes on to describe Martin Sheen as “erratic” a word in astrology we would indeed use to describe Aquarius/Uranus energy. Aquarius and Uranus in hard aspect (conjunction, square and opposition) to personal planets is where we say: fuck the system. I have Aquarius rising, I have my own issues with “the man” lol Uranus square Saturn Authority? What is that!
Charlie has Sun square Uranus and the Aquarius Midheaven. The Midheaven indicates both how he is viewed by the public-erratic, changeable etc. and it also gives a glimpse into his father
The Sun in the natal chart rules the father by sign, house placement and aspects along with the Midheaven. Both Emilio and Charlie have Uranus in hard aspect to the Sun and as I combed through countless articles of Charlie and Martin Sheen, I quietly wondered if Martin Sheen has ever taken any accountability regarding the condition of his adult son.
This got me thinking of the karmic inheritance in natal charts. I have done a lot of readings and have often noticed patterns Sun square Saturn; inheriting the fathers melancholic/depressive nature. I have seen up to four generations that have Sun square Saturn in the natal chart. My own father had Sun and Pluto as a part of a Stellium and I have Sun square Pluto in a configuration an astrological inheritance of intensity, loner mentality and the need to confront the darker parts of the identity. And with Sun in hard aspect to Uranus there is a need to buck the system, to be unapologetically you and this indeed tells the story of an erratic father.
Some quotes on hard Sun/Uranus aspects
Any contacts between the Sun and Uranus “signifies unusual parents and unusual childhood environment” “The influence of the father is important; he is unorthodox and unusual man in some way” – Astrologer Betty Lundsted
Sun Conjunct Uranus “The life will be unusual perhaps erratic” Any contact between Sun and Uranus indicates “unusual behavior can range from unorthodox on a healthy level to all kinds of perversity”. The person with Sun conjunct Uranus has to learn to channel the energy of the aspect or he will be controlled by it” Parents have problems raising this child for the child picked up the father’s unorthodox behavior” –Betty Lundsted
“There are several possibilities. It is unlikely that there was real intimacy with the father, though likely there was a lot of excitement connected with him” “The child gets use to not knowing whether the father is going to be there or whether he will be friendly a remote. Anything could happen, emotional dissociation takes place.
Martin Sheen does not have this aspect natal but I wonder if his parenting or lack of parenting kicked off generations of Sun aspecting Uranus that will need to be reconciled.
Starting with Charlie and Emilio and is very apparent in the charts of Charlies Children
Casandra Estevez born with Sun conjunct Uranus like Charlie
Lola Sheen Sun Square Uranus
Max and Bob Sheen Sun conjunct Uranus like Charlie
Sam Sheen; Charlies first child with Denise Richard is the only child that does not have Sun in hard aspect to Uranus perhaps Charlie Sheen was sober when she was conceived, she does have Sun in Pisces which can AT TIMES NOT ALL THE TIME indicate a father with addiction issues.
I believe it was Jung that wrote
“Among all possible ghosts that haunt man the spirits of the parents possess the greatest significance”
