I’ve Decided to Borrow a Term from Salman Rushdie

Midnight’s Children

Yesterday, I was watching a YouTube video from my friend (and fellow astrologer) Ellie Adams. In it, she was discussing all about the midpoint between the Sun and the Moon with regards to Synestry (the astrology of relationships). I had a sudden flash of insight (as you do), and realized that the midpoint of a Sun/Moon opposition both squared to the Ascendant, is that same Rising degree. In my latest a-ha chart moment, the Moon was conjunct the Midheaven, due to a birth time of 12:01 A.M. Wow!

Midnight’s Children!

And Speaking of Salman Rushdie (June 19, 1947)


Salman Rushdie is a English-American writer of Indian descent. He has been living under a fatwā since 1989 after writing about Muhammad in the book “The Satanic Verses”. So, he’s no stranger to controversy.

The midpoint of his natal Sun/Moon conjunction is 26° Gemini 39′, which is less that 1° from Polaris, the North Star on his 3rd House cusp! He has but one inconjunct, which we have seen before, recently.

You need to express your thoughts and feelings, but you often upset the people around you with your words. You seem to enjoy creating a stir every time you say something, but this can get you into quite a bit of trouble with parents, teachers and other authority figures. The underlying principle of this aspect is the need to balance your individual self-expression and manner of communicating with your need to learn and grow under the guidance of older people.

I rest my case, m’lord.

    And, if I didn’t make myself clear enough here, this primarily relates to non-binary individuals, who exhibit a ‘perfect balance’ of masculine and feminine traits.
