Jacob Hoggard (July 9, 1984)
I’m beginning to think that taking high profile men to court for sexual misbehaviour is becoming passé. Men have always been sexual predators, just ask the cavewoman who got knocked on the head with a club and taken back to the man’s cave. It seems to be part of their nature, like it or not.
The high profile rape trial involving Hedley front man, Jacob Hoggard, is a case in point. The nightly news reports are repeating all the juicy details, ad nauseam. (Honestly, he’s not that important, really.)
This birth time is accurate as Hoggard’s birth notice was printed in the Vancouver Sun newspaper on July 12, 1984. That makes a nice change. There is a hint of ‘arrested’ development with Venus @ 23° Cancer 46′, in the 3rd House, conjunct to the IC. Hoggard made it into the Canadian Idol final 3, in 2004. He was just 20 at the time. Mars in his birth chart is the closest planet to that age. That may be why he acts like a warrior in the bedroom: he may think that is what is expected from him, by his ‘fans’.

You like to think big, and you have great ambition, but you don’t always make sure that your thinking is clear or careful. When you make any kind of plan, be careful. Don’t try to take on more than you can handle and make sure not to overlook details, for that would hurt what you are trying to do. Careful planning will help you develop disciplined habits in other areas as well. This aspect can mean that you are sloppy in your personal appearance and in your work habits.
On the other hand, if you do learn careful mental habits, you can have creative ability with this aspect, because you are able to see and understand all the elements of a situation. You take a broad and far-seeing view of a situation, which is unusual for someone your age. Most of the time you are willing to let other people think what they choose, as long as they leave your ideas alone. However, you may be inclined to preach about morality, because you enjoy being right and letting others know that they do not live up to your “high” standards. But sometimes you fake it; you aren’t as “good” as you pretend to be. Be careful of this, for you could be known as a hypocrite. It’s fine to set high standards, and live up to them, but do not pretend to be better than you are. And let others decide on their own moral standards.
So, he has pleaded not guilty to all charges, claiming that the sex was consensual. And, as we saw in “Anatomy of a Scandal” the court may find in your favour, but you know in your heart of hearts that you are not so innocent after all. And so it is for all participants of the masculine side of life.
