Tyler Henry (January 13, 1996)
Have you ever wanted to be read by a medium clairvoyant? It’s not as hard as you think: just sign up here, and Tyler Henry will (eventually) come to your place (of choosing) and read you. Would you do it, though? As his latest show on Netflix demonstrates again and again, it’s a very emotional process.
Whether you are a true believer or not, life does continue after death, so the controversy that rages on social media as to whether Tyler Henry is a fake (or not) rests with the results of his readings. Most are shocked that he picks up references to things that no one else supposedly knows. In this series, he is never told beforehand whom he is going to read so that he cannot look them up on the internet. But it doesn’t stop his psychic ability from picking up clues before he even gets to his destination, while in the car. Some are associated with famous people, most are just ordinary folk, trying to make sense of the passing of someone they love. The nastiest comment for Tyler and his work is that he is a ‘grief vampire’. Now, in my opinion, that’s not fair, but with our fear of the transition to the afterlife we call ‘death’, we label stuff associated with it, negatively, just to keep death at arm’s length.
This timing is genuine. Tyler quoted it on his Twitter account. After watching most of his sixth episode, last night, I was prompted to do my usual research and then erect his birth chart. I’ve mentioned before that I trust the randomization of the timing, but I got ‘proof’ of its correctness when I went to plug in his birth details: the timing was exactly 8:27:54 pm. His birth time is quoted as 8:28 pm. How’s that for ‘close enough for jazz’?
He claims that his first ‘event’ of being psychic was when he was ten years old. That would be represented in his birth chart as the conjunction between the Sun and Neptune in Capricorn. Normally, the Sun in Capricorn is far more ‘down-to-earth’ but Neptune may have been a prompt from a grandparent (and not the killer adoptive mother who raised his mom, but the real ancestor). In his teens he considered ending his life (Mercury/Mars conjunct) but somehow the moment passed. Later he fell in love with his present boyfriend (Venus). So I think the chart is accurate. Notice how everything seems to pivot around his mom, Theresa (Moon). There are three inconjuncts.
Mercury Inconjunct Ascendant
You are likely to have some problems, but not serious ones, in communicating with others. The problem is that people’s first impression of you may not fit in with what you say or your manner of thinking and speaking. People tend to hear what they expect to hear, and they may not listen to you as carefully as they should. So you will have to be as clear as possible and insist that others listen to what you are really saying. If others do not understand you, it is up to you to set them straight.
This pattern also works in reverse in that what you say may make people respond in ways that you can’t accept. For example, you may be outspoken and frank but dislike it when others are, preferring to be treated gently and sensitively.
Mars Inconjunct Ascendant
This aspect can mean that you have mixed feelings about all authority figures, including your parents. You may feel that you have to violate the rules laid down by your parents in order to get your way. This is a significant problems, because if it continues into adulthood, you will have great difficulties with employers. Therefore it is very important that your parents teach you how to express your self-assertive drives without going against their teachings. Unfortunately it is impossible to state how that should be done, because the conflict between self-will, on one hand, and self-denial and work, on the other, is different for each person.
Another was to solve this kind of conflict is to learn that you can say what needs to be said and not be forced to remain quiet. You can’t expect your elders to always go along with your ideas, but you should be able to feel confident of your right to say it. The exception to this, of course, is that you do not have any right to say anything just to hurt others.
Mercury Conjunct Mars
You don’t follow anyone else in your opinions, being quite happy to be the only one to hold a particular belief, You have no wish to control what others think, but you will not be controlled by anyone else, either. While you are young, adults may resent you for being so independent and for seeming to disobey them. But they can reason with you, for you are not a very impulsive person. If you know you will feel defeated if you agree with someone, you won’t budge. You have to be free to choose the better alternative and know that your choice will be respected. You cannot bear not to be taken seriously in this regard.
Jupiter Inconjunct Midheaven
This aspect can mean that you have mixed feelings toward adults and persons in authority over you. Although you know that they have your best interests at heart and that they want you to succeed at your own objectives, it often seems as if their demands are keeping you from doing what you want. When you want to go off and have fun, for example, you are told to finish your work first. At times you want to break free of this restricting influence and go off by yourself. The problem with this aspect is to find a balance between, on the one hand, expressing yourself creatively, perhaps artistically, and having a good time and, on the other hand, getting ahead in life, learning the ways of the world and finding an acceptable role in society. You know you will have to make sacrifices in order to accomplish anything of value.
(I guess we could call him a ‘rebel with a cause’.)
