Astrology and Celebrity: Bill O’Reilly’s Neptunian Moment

Bill O'Reilly (Astrology Explored) Bill O’Reilly came out swinging in his first interview since he was fired from the FOX news organization.

O’Reilly was fired from Fox News after an explosive New York Times report published in April revealed that he and the network had paid millions to settle sexual harassment lawsuits filed against him over the years — including two after former chairman Roger Ailes was ousted in the wake of his own sexual harassment scandal last summer. O’Reilly said on Friday that’s he’s had enough.

From now on when I’m attacked, I’m going to take action — mostly legal action,” O’Reilly said. “It’s not going to happen anymore to me.”

O’Reilly’s sexual harassment allegations led to a massive advertiser boycott, and resulted in Fox News canceling the top-rated “O’Reilly Factor.” The cable news king was dismissed from his 21-year perch at the network.

O’Reilly said he was “target number one” from “the organized left-wing cabal” charged with “destroying voices” it “does not like.”

We don’t have Bill O’Reilly’s full birth data. We lack the birth time, so any information about the moon is speculative. But when you have not one, not two, but many Neptunian indicators in a chart, then well, such statements are full of speculation, if you put it mildly.

What can astrology tell us?

The chart below shows Bill’s sunrise birth chart, his progressions based on his sunrise chart and today’s transits, when the story was published on CNN.

Let’s start with his Sun (highlighted in green), which is in Virgo, sitting along (conjunct) Saturn, the planet of restrictions and duty, in the same sign. Progressed Mars, the planet of troubles, is sitting along side his Sun/Saturn combination. By transit, as the planets move in the sky, Neptune, the planet of delusion is in tension aspect to O’Reilly’s Sun. Neptune aspecting one’s Sun makes it difficult for the native to see issues clearly. But you don’t have to take my word for it

Sakoian and Ackers say:

Self deception in relationships and delusions of grandeur characterize this transit…Neurotic tendencies can be stimulated…[this transit] lasts for two years and thus indicates a sustained period of possible self-deception and psychological confusion.

But also, Mr O’Reilly’s Progressed Moon conjuncts his natal Neptune/Mercury combination and transiting Jupiter, the planet of expansion, sits on all that (see yellow section.)

And check this out. Mr. O’Reilly’s planet of his value system, Venus in Libra, is under attack by the planet of something wrong, an inconjunct Chiron in Pisces. Pisces is ruled by Neptune. The inconjunct aspect swings the planet in it’s thrall from one position to another but unable to make a decision. Imagine that inconjunct interacting with a Venus in the indecisive sign of Libra.

The best way to deal with all this Neptune is go on a spiritual retreat. But I don’t see that happening for Mr. O’Reilly.

In the meantime anything he says should be taken with a grain of salt.
