Rumen Radev1)b. 18.6.1963, Martin Bormann2)b. 17.6.1900, Salman Rushdie3)b. 19.6.1947 and Paul McCartney4)b. 18.6.1942 were all born when the Sun was at the eighty seventh zodiacal degree. They are Sun degree twins. Thus, they share the same Sun totem – the canary bird.
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%. The Sun’s influence determines both the physical resemblance of the persons to their Sun degree totem, which in this case is the canary, and the resemblance between persons having the same Sun totem. Our gallery illustrates this.
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 corresponding Sun degree.
The canary is a songbird with bright plumage. It has been domesticated centuries ago and is now the most popular cage songster. In many of the most popular singers and artists, its degree is active. Very often canary-people trade their freedom for golden cages. They combine wit and talent with venality. They know how to sell themselves dearly. And they prostitute cynically, although they offer themselves in a very beautiful and artful manner. They boldly combine beauty, glamor and elegance with commercialism, imprudence and insolence. However, wonderful manners, tact, charm, elegance and courtesy cleverly disguise this. Externally they are polite, but their internal condition is often quite different.
Paul McCartney, Alison Moyet, Jello Biafra, Blanche Yurka, Phylicia Rashad, Rafaella Carra, Tom Bailey and Jeanette MacDonald were born on the degree of canary and are examples of vocal , artistic and commercial talent of canary-people. Martin Bormann, a German Nazi official, one of the most powerful but least known Nazis, who was called ‘Hitler‘s evil genius’ as well as Salman Rushdie, the writer, whose head is valued at over $ 10 million and whose books are banned in 13 countries, because of his non-canonical description of the Islamic prophet Mohammed, are both perfect examples of the voluntary entry of the human canary in a golden prison.
At first, the domestic canary was monopoly of the Spanish monks who sold only the singing male birds thus preventing canary breeding and raising its price. The canary began to live in aristocratic circles, became a palace chicken and enjoyed the rich.
The canary memorizes different sounds and bird songs and can reproduce them. It can be taught to sing in a desired way. It learns easy, it is very trusting and amenable to training. It propagates in cages and is very adaptive. It can be forced to change its colouring by changing its diet.
The degree endows natives with precision, fastidiousness, pedantry and obsesses them with different ideas. It bestows the skill to select ‘the key for every door.’ ‘A bunch of keys’ is one of its symbols. The degree is associated with countless obstacles and difficulties that canary-persons themselves create and with the inability to overcome them. It indicates the many choices that they constantly make. The famous lithograph ‘Relativity’ of M.C. Escher, a Dutch artist born on the day of the canary, well illustrates the absurdity of the difficult choice that canary-persons face.
The degree of canary is one of the highest in the zodiac and the instinct that it implants strives to look from a bird’s eye view, on top of things so that all options are open. The result can resemble arrogance, but the instinct’s motivation is rather striving to untouchability and detachedness. The degree is linked to failure, loss of affection and love that brings grief.5)The degree warns of the danger of infecting whilst being on the surgery table. The canary-person is agile, clever and artistic, but may turn out to be cornered during his search of independence. A pilot in his cockpit is a good illustration of the pertinent to the degree self-restraint in the name of independence.
‘A person sitting at the table despondently watching a fiddle with broken strings laid before him’ is another symbol of the degree. It indicates one who is not quite sure of himself and who allows completely preventable worldly adversities to harm him. He succumbs to despondency, apprehension and anxiety without any apparent reason, while all the time the decision is under his nose.
The domesticated canary might not take off after its cage is opened. The canary-person unnecessary and superfluously wonders and sits between two stools for too long. Often he has worried look and melancholic temperament. Suitable occupations to him are a museum worker and an archivist. He is most daring in choice avoidance. If he thinks for a while, he will realize that in most cases things depend on him and that the decision gives freedom and joy. He can be advised to develop his will and to turn his understanding into action. Then even the broken instrument will sound. The degree of canary is a symbol of Surrender.
‘A young gypsy comes out of the woods (wherein his tribe is encamped), regarding the spreading vista (of a distant city) before him with great interest.’ is the Sabian symbol of degree. It describes a new perspective of development that opens to the instinctive nature and the growth of awareness from instinctive to intellectual levels. This is a process of individuation, a conscious attempt to disengage from the earthly instinctual tribal experience and for penetration into the sphere of intellect and intense interpersonal relationships. In it, the ‘wild’ instincts fall into a situation in which they will be ‘tamed.
Canary-people feel a more or less clear desire to achieve a new level of consciousness and therefore the of internal transformation. They try to cultivate and civilize themselves. They strive to anticipate and their self-confidence grows. They are in a process of experiencing re polarization.
The degree gives multilateral suffered abilities reaching virtuosity, but also infertility and celibacy.6)This depends largely on the strength of Moon and Neptune in the personal horoscope It bestows strategic talent and skill to win. The canary-people have the power to inspire. They win authority with their own labour. They find success in the arts and at the stage. However, they are superficial: they admire decorative art more than nature.
Humanization proceeds largely at the expense of limiting natural instincts. The transition to civilization is a kind of voluntary imprisonment. Culturalization alienates from primary desires. Mental exercises do not bring pleasure of full value. That which is intellectual loses touch with nature and demotivates. The degree of canary relates to one’s disappointment of their place in life.
