Brought down by Jupiter, Roseanne Barr is finding out the hard way that arrogance and self-righteous bigotry, which are the ‘lucky’ planet’s negative traits, can and do backfire. Fly too high like Icarus and the fall is swift. Strongly Jupiterian charts assume they have divine protection, or at least that their guardian angel will always be there to fish them out of trouble.
She has tr Jupiter moving through her 9th house of communication and aiming to conjunct her midheaven later this year. Normally that would indicate a career and status boost. But she has a heavily aspected (afflicted) Jupiter in her chart – opposition her Scorpio Sun in a Fixed Grand Cross to an Aquarius Node and Pluto – that is not only obstinate to the nth degree, giving tremendous endurance, but is also power hungry, lacking in social niceties and inclined to disregard both conventional courtesies and rules. She thinks she’s above them (Jupiter Pluto). And inclined to hubris.
As if that wasn’t enough her Jupiter is on the focal point of a Yod inconjunct Venus sextile Saturn (Neptune). Such a Jupiter does indicate an ability to appeal to the masses but can be undone by self-aggrandisement and the inability to harbour any doubts about the rightness of beliefs. Tr Jupiter at the moment is opposition her natal Jupiter pulling on her Sun and her Yod. And tr Neptune is undermining on of her Jupiter midpoints exactly now which brings failures and dashed plans.
On top of all of this, she has a volatile, reckless Cardinal T Square of Mars opposition Uranus square Saturn Neptune in Libra, which will make her incapable of compromise with a tendency to over-react to interference or limits. Tr Pluto is exactly square her Saturn now, having just moved off her neurotic/confused Saturn/Neptune midpoint and is reversing back to square her Uranus in the 6th house of work in September. So tr Pluto is pounding not just on her central T Square but also one leg of the Yod which usually produces fateful changes of direction.
I would wonder marginally about tr Jupiter moving across her MC later this year and through her 10th in 2019. Her show was staggeringly successful and brought $60 million in for the studio, so its not beyond the bounds of possibility that a less fussy network picks her up. Though 2019 is still bogged down by tr Pluto square her Neptune and she has some fairly catastrophic Uranus transits to various midpoints. And her Solar Arc Sun is moving to oppose her Uranus, exact in 8 months’ time which will bring a jolting blow.
The Roseanne Revival 10th season started broadcasting 27 March 2018 with a hard-edged, likely to inflame strong feelings Sun square Saturn Mars. Pluto is also square Venus Uranus pointing to strong reactions and a roller coaster ride. Tr Saturn is now retrograding back exactly in square to the Sun and within days is conjunct the Mars/Saturn midpoint. Mars Saturn in a chart often indicates ‘accidents’ or setbacks. But tr Pluto will sextile Jupiter in 2019/2020, so it maybe after suitable grovelling (maybe) there’s a resurgence. And her Solar Return from November 2018 to November 2019 has Jupiter on the MC so she’ll be prominent one way or another.
