Tom Hayden (December 11, 1939 – October 23, 2016)
The depiction of Tom Hayden in the film, The Trial of the Chicago 7, by Eddie Redmayne, seemed muted, at least to me. But then, I only knew of this man through his political activism and his marriage to, and association with, Jane Fonda.
Now, looking at his birth chart, I think they got it right.
Most astrology sites, and my Kepler 7.0 program, state that his supposed birth time was 2:00 pm. But that wasn’t dynamic enough to explain how Hayden became a spokesperson for the anti-war movement in the late 60’s, early 70’s. The alternative time was suggested as 2:00 am. I think that birth time fits him, and his life, better.
Sun Inconjunct Uranus
There is a side of your personality that is very restless and impatient with rules, even when you know they are for your own good. You want very much to go your own way and do your own thing, even when you aren’t entirely sure that it is the right direction for you. So you rebel in subtle ways by having sudden fits of obstinacy and moods of feeling very contrary, especially to your parents or other authority figures.
Sometimes the energy of this aspect comes out in other ways as well. At times sudden upsets may occur in your life that totally alter your plans, so that you have to change course completely. When this happens, you must learn to yield to the pressure and flow with the change. It may be difficult for you to realize it, but such an upset occurs because you have blocked much-needed changes in your life, or they have been denied you. However upsetting these changes are at first, they will give you the freedom you need to grow as an individual. Unfortunately, if you always wait for changes to come in this manner, they are likely to be very startling and unsettling. If you learn to assert your individuality more directly, the changes will not seem so upsetting.
As with many other inconjuncts, astrologers have found that if you suppress your need and desire for freedom in your life, this energy may be expressed through illness or accident. While you are young, you may have accidents because you suddenly make unpredictable, rash movements. Later in life this aspect can signify cardiac problems, but only if you suppress your natural need for self-expression.
Saturn Inconjunct Neptune
This aspect is strongest when either of these planets is also conjunct or opposition the Ascendant or Midheaven. It can have a variety of effects, one of which may be difficulty in relating fantasy and imagination, on one hand, to reality, duty, obligation and work, on the other. Usually the reality, duty and work aspect of this combination is dominant, at least at first. Your imaginative side tends to be transformed into nervousness, fear and irrational anxieties. The most negative manifestation of this aspect is a feeling that you have to keep a tight lid on yourself and that if you look inside yourself to closely, you will find only emptiness and disintegration. It is difficult for you to realize that this is not the truth about your inner self.
If you do not learn to confront your inner fears now, they may surface as chronic physical ailments, although that is not likely to be apparent early in life. If you can learn to release your creativity, you can avoid negative physical effects.
