Joachim Murat1)b. 25.3.1767, Tennessee Williams2)b. 26.3.1911, Elton John3)b. 25.3.1947 and Veselin Mareshki4)b. 26.3.1967 were born when the Sun was on the same zodiacal degree and are therefore Sun degree twins. Thus, they share the same Sun totem – the cougar.5)The ancient sources associate the degree with a blue lion that once lived in the mountains, but today is extinct. One of its probable modern relatives is the cougar known also as mountain lion, panther or catamount. I chose it because of the similarities I find with the representatives of the degree. Accordingly, despite their racial, ethnical and cultural differences they have physical, psychological and occupational similarities. This is due to the non-genetic imprinting of traits conditioned by the strongest cosmic influence at the time of birth.
Astrological influences operate on basic physical and biological levels and equally determine bodily proportions, instinctual nature and mental dispositions. Usually, the Sun is the strongest astrological influence and has the greatest imprinting power. Generally, its contribution to the physical and mental traits of individuals is more than 50% and up to 90%. Sun’s influence determines the physical resemblance of the persons to both their Sun degree totem, which in this case is the mountain lion or the cougar, and to persons having the same Sun totem, i.e., born when the Sun has been on the same zodiacal degree. Our gallery illustrates this. The Sun degree also determines a great part of the psychological characteristics.
Note that the physical similarity becomes increasingly difficult to observe with difference in age, sex, racial and species belonging. Despite this, it is here for all to see. Living things including man are not merely an outgrowth of DNA molecules. For they are also a spiritual cosmic beings, a reality to which the modern materialistic science is totally blind.
The similarities between these people and animals stem from the Sun’s zodiacal influence. Clearly, they are not of material genetic origin. Observing these spiritual similarities may be an illuminating experience. One can see that there is something stable in life persisting through the ages. It is the worldly embodiment of certain universal qualities. It can be noticed in the eyes, intentions and gestures of the creatures: men or animals. Although science has not yet recognized this non-genetic cosmic imprinting, it is shown here for anyone who is able to perceive it.
This is not a personal horoscope, but an overview of the related Sun degree.
The cougar-person is an original relic, removed, unsociable, primary and proud. It carries the mark of archaism, rejection, inferiority, of lonely chivalry or the last Mohican. Its whole being experiences a childlike longing for eventual realization. He has enormous appetites, vainglory, desire for greatness and exaltation. He possesses nobility, elitism and elegance. Joachim Murat was called the dandy king, and Elton John is famous for his flamboyant stage costuming.
Cougar-people have a puffy cattish look but not of a lion as their hair is usually weak or short.6)Elton John’s hair is artificial. Their lips are wide, often thick and sensitive especially in youth and are well removed from the nose. The philtrum or the vertical groove under the nose is big and well-developed. This betrays the great importance of the sense of smell and hunting of distant prey.
Cougar-people combine greed with generosity, nobility with cruelty, wastefulness with vigour, courage with apathy and devotion with baseness. There is a similar polarization in their attitude to homosexuality.7)Tennessee Williams and Elton John don’t hide their homosexuality, whilst Veselin Mareshki expresses his hatred for homosexuals in public. They aim high with zeal, but whether their goal will develop to a spiritual one is questionable. Their emotional dedication holds spiritual potential. Their fierceness and enthusiasm transmute easily into one another. They show the cruelty of children who have just realized they have greater opportunities or that they can get more and are quick to take advantage of this.
Extravagant, vain, and vainglorious, the cougar-person develops alone, thanks to his own efforts. Often, however, he falls into lethargy and fails to realize his abilities. He is a dangerous predatory beast, though it rarely acts as such in the literal sense. If his mind wakes up to the spiritual, he may become a knight of enlightenment. However, if he is bogged down in the material, his knightliness is destructive and he will become dependent on the mercy of those who he denies. The degree symbolizes false security.
