The Rapid Evolution of the Charity Record (1984-1985)

Do They Know It’s Christmas?

This song was the first in a series of records to raise money for the starving people in Ethiopia, Africa. Until now, I had never considered seeing what that looked like astrologically.

Admittedly, this chart looks familiar. It also represents the middle of my last five months before moving to England from Canada. Hmm. (And just to recall, it’s equivalent to dropping the A-bomb on Japan in August, 1945, but is more likely to be connected to the chart I did for Indira Gandhi’s assassination at the end of October, 1984.)

We Are The World

And true to form, the Americans decided to record this song to help, too. But they made it personal, and they made it about themselves. (But, to be fair, this is a proper spiritual viewpoint.)

See how the planets have moved along? And now Uranus is inconjunct the Midheaven.

Tears Are Not Enough

Then the Canadians got in on the act. They recorded this song the day after my 35th birthday.

Because there are no details about what time the artists got together to record, I have set the clock for 12 noon. That makes it generic, rather than specific, but there still are two significant inconjuncts, between Pluto (conjunct the Moon) in Scorpio and Venus and Mars in Aries. Hmm.

Charting the Evolution

The Moon has its hand in the movement of emotion to help these starving Ethiopians: first as conjunct the first chart’s Ascendant in Capricorn; then in Taurus in the second chart (inconjunct the first chart’s Uranus); and finally, in Scorpio in the third chart (conjunct the first chart’s Pluto). By that time, everyone in the West was on board the idea of the charity record to raise money. Over the years, these themes would be revisited to aid other worthwhile endeavors.
