Harrison Ford (b. 13.7.1942) Simeon Djankov (b. 13.7.1970) are born on the same day of the year when the Sun was on the one hundred and eleventh zodiacal degree. They are Sun degree twins. Thus, they share the same Sun totem: catfish.
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 catfish, and the resemblance between persons having the same Sun totem. Our gallery illustrates this.
The resemblance of these persons stems from the Sun’s zodiacal influence. Clearly, it is not of material genetic origin. Observing the similarity 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 a description of the degree of the catfish that is the main degree in the horoscopes of the persons shown in the gallery.
The catfish (Silurus glanis, wels catfish) is a deep-water fish. It is a predator, but also feeds on carrion and therefore purified rivers. The catfish is a sacred fish. Vedic and Persian cultures associate the catfish with the sacred drink soma (haoma) and with the Moon. In Slavic languages, the word for catfish is ‘som’.
The catfish is considered a guardian of the depths. People born on the day of the catfish, dig deep. They are very serious people and thorough researchers. Often they become historians and writers. They learn anything for a long time and treat everything with the utmost seriousness. They have universal abilities. Actor Harrison Ford, for instance, whose Sun totem is catfish, has a special talent for roles of a profound historian and researcher with universal abilities. Catfish-people have good minds, but are weak-willed. They have a wide-ranging interests, but never bring things to an end..
The catfish has several pairs of sensory whiskers and warts. He has chemical receptors along its body with which it tastes the water and orientates well in the murky water. Its sense of smell and hearing are very well developed. The catfish sucks and swallows food, instead of projecting its mouth ahead, as most fish do. The upper jaw of the catfish supports its sensory whiskers. It has lost its mobility because of its size.
The typical catfish features – big mouth, flattened and mustached face – are expressions of its secretive, foretasting, sniffing ahead and lurking nature. The sensitivity of the catfish, his wide mouth, small eyes and waiting policy are interrelated. The same is true for its human counterpart. The mouth of the catfish-person is expressed and wide and his eyes are relatively small, fixed and deep-set or at least leave such impression. He has strong intuition and is deeply convinced of his rightness, but realizes late in life. He is not impulsive but thoughtful, conservative, may be religious and has great composure.
The catfish-people are secretive, silent and very serious. The nature is very difficult to solve and escapes any definition. Frequently they play a double game. They obtain tremendous power that they have to hide. They are always linked to many secrets.
Catfish utter various sounds in multiple ways and share important information with each other. The catfish-people never waste words in vain. They precalculate everything in advance. They strive for individualization through social activities that bring fame and financial success. In life, they tend to take on the position of observers. Spies and employees of special services are often born under this degree.
The degree of the catfish implants strivings for power, for social and economic reforms and for spiritual values. It provides for success in the civil service, in the political and financial arena as well as in art. Often those who are born on the day of catfish become leaders, reformers, promoters and achieve excellence in their field. They make efforts to improve the culture and exhibit higher understanding of life ambitions. They set examples to others and many people compare to them. They have something to do with pedagogy.
Their profession requires a lot of walking, travel, change of residence and work. Often their lives remains unsettled due to lots of unexpected trips. All of their lives they have to struggle with the adverse conditions and circumstances.
Catfish sometimes resurface and catch birds floating on the surface. They are seen even to jump on the shore and to catch pigeons. The catfish-people are silent and withdrawn, but they are inventive adventurers. When in a hurry they make their biggest mistakes.
