David Icke (April 29, 1952)
I watched the Wogan show where David Icke declared that he was a Son of God. In hindsight, he probably needed to stress, at the time, that we are all sons and daughters of God, but he may not have been aware of how mocked he would become. “Icke’s a nutter…” No, he’s not.
But one does come up against mainstream media resistance when you accuse them of being under the influence of some very rich and powerful people who want to reshape opinion in this social media world. What David may have misunderstood was everything they (the MSM) did was ‘just business’. And that’s where the ‘little’ guy always gets screwed.
The timing of this chart is randomized, as you can tell because of the use of hours, minutes AND seconds. I haven’t attempted to reconcile/rectify the time due to the fact that some interesting aspects show up, anyway. There are four inconjuncts, two of which form a Yod pointing at Mercury. That Yod may explain a lot.
Sun Inconjunct Saturn
You may feel that persons, forces or circumstances are conspiring to prevent you from doing what you want. You may be limited by fear or by the belief that you don’t deserve to get what you want. With this aspect there is a danger that your frustrated energies will turn into physical ailments that further limit your freedom of action. (Arthritis?)
Mercury Inconjunct Mars
You often find it difficult to separate yourself from what you believe. You fight very hard for your ideas, even when you suspect you are wrong. You must learn that you are not your ideas, that you have them but are not them. If you do not learn this, it will be difficult even to have a friendly talk with friends, because you are always trying to make a point, defend your opinion or prove somebody else wrong. This also makes you irritable and touchy, so that others prefer not to be around you. Of course, you should not give in about something you seriously believe in, but it is unlikely that you would make that mistake. (“I’ve done the research, mate; have you?”)
Mercury Inconjunct Midheaven
While you are young, you may not be able to accept your own ideas as valid if they contradict what you have been taught. Yet you cannot simply suppress your own ways of thinking. If you try, you will create tension and probably create a gap between what you are trying to do and what you say. When you are older you may express this tension by making indiscreet remarks that totally get in the way of your objectives […] It is very important that you remember not to speak impulsively. If you do, it is very likely that you will put your foot in your mouth. Consider what you are going to say and how your words can further your objectives. (Son of God?)
Venus Inconjunct Ascendant
You should realize that others will respect you if you stand up for yourself and ask for a reasonable return in a relationship. If you constantly seem to be apologizing for who and what you are, people begin to wonder if they have overlooked something that is wrong with you, and they begin to lose confidence in you. Thus you may bring about the criticism hat you are afraid of. You are as good and as worthy of being loved as anyone. Be yourself with others, and many people will love you. (Basis of popularity?)
In 1991 Icke, then a popular BBC sports presenter, unexpectedly announced on Wogan that he was the son of God. The screams of laughter from the studio audience felt like a firing squad. When I met him soon afterwards he said of that interview: “One of my very greatest fears as a child was being ridiculed in public. As a television presenter people come up to you and shake your hand and talk to you in a respectful way. And suddenly, overnight, this was transformed into ‘Icke’s a nutter.’ I couldn’t walk down any street in Britain without being laughed at. That was so important for me in understanding how it was possible for a relatively few people in key positions to run the world. They do it by manipulating the way people think and feel.”
I felt quite sure then, and still do, that he was right about that last part. The mainstream media loves to form a consensus about who the new most ridiculed person ought to be. The same is true of social media, of course. Sometimes these warring factions disagree, and a person monsterised by one clique is deemed a magnificent hero by another, but with each wild generalisation our grey areas become unfashionable and there’s a narrowing of what constitutes an acceptable person.
All the conspiracy movement needed was charismatic leaders
But there was something that the mainstream media, in its hubris, failed to notice about David Icke: a growing number of people were feeling more aligned to him than to his tormentors. These were people who also, for their own reasons, felt ridiculed and shut out of the culture. And so when Icke re-emerged with his paedophile lizard theory he immediately began selling out concert halls across the world. It was an incredibly surprising and, I suspect, spiteful story born from injury: conspiracy theory as grievance storytelling. And it was a dangerous theory, with its appeals to paranoia and delusion.

I rest my case, m’lord.
(And for those with spiritual vision: Sun Inconjunct Saturn = God’s Son vs. Satan.)
