Patrick McGoohan (March 19, 1928 – January 13, 2009)
I’m being a bit cheeky here, since John Drake’s and Patrick McGoohan’s birth time and date are identical. And (t)he(y) was/were born in Astoria, New York. That’s surprising.
But Patrick may have understood something about himself that made it important to have John Drake be identical to him. His birth chart shows us what that something is.
Yup, Neptune in Leo in the 7th House (‘open enemies’). The oppositions to the Ascendant/Moon conjunction (in Aquarius) and the Mercury/Venus conjunction in Pisces has “Spy” written all over them. (Having an inconjunct linking the Sun and Neptune only adds to the intrigue.)
But, of course, that’s not all: Mars (conjunct the Ascendant in Aquarius in the ‘unconscious’ 12th House) is inconjunct Pluto in Gemini. Patrick probably feels a compulsion to expose the ‘secret’ life to the light of day, or at least to the viewing public.
So Mr McGoohan was ‘typecast’ as the ultimate Danger Man.
