Astro-dar detects Virgo

Scooting around available BBC radio shows online last weekend, I happened across a programme where Bill Nighy was being re-united with tracks from his vinyl record collection, which had been lost in a flood. As I tuned in, the presenter was commenting on how Bill, holding the stack of vinyl LPs provided by the BBC, was fiddling with the records, making sure all were neatly aligned. Bill responded, "Yes, I'm really very good at aligning things - though not as good at dusting and cleaning them".

My astro-dar was alerted! Sounds like a Virgo trait ! I Google-searched to discover whether has Bill's natal chart, and found instead Astrotheme's. Born 12 December 1949 in Caterham, UK. Without knowing his time of birth, natal Moon's position can't be known, but Moon, along with Mars and Saturn, would have been in Virgo whatever time Bill was born.

Good to know my ol' astro-dar is still in working order!

Natal Sun square that Mars-Saturn conjunction in Virgo...possibly Sun square Moon, too. His final dispositors are Mercury and Saturn in mutual reception. He may not be as good at dusting and cleaning, but I bet he has staff that is VERY good at dusting and cleaning...LOL. I suspect he's a very fussy individual, somewhat rigid in respecting social mores, particularly with the presentation of self (Sun). His attire reflects the Mercury-Saturn:

"Nighy is known for his bespoke navy suits; he was listed as one of the fifty best-dressed over 50s by The Guardian in March 2013 and one of GQ's 50 best dressed British men in 2015."

I had intended to view "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" on Netflix, but forgot all about til now. Don't know if it's still on the menu.

Here's an interesting Arthur Nash biography with socialist implications, but actually a capitalist success story. Many side-line stories to the bio, as well:

mike + (again) ~ Thanks - yes - though I'd never considered it before, Bill Nighy does give the impression of a very careful person, careful in his manner of speech, careful in general. I guess I'd assumed it was due to the usual parts he plays, but he is perhaps chosen for such parts because it actually IS him (or near enough). As well as "Best Exoctic..." he's in "About Time" - which was/is also on Netflix - a bit of mild time travel involved, and he stars in a short series (trilogy) of Johnny Worricker dramas (been on PBS now on Netflix) - we watched one of the 3, found it not bad, but couldn't warm to another of the 3 - don't recall which though.

Thanks for the mapping download - will bookmark for future investigation.

Arthur Ash sounds like a good egg! He lived in different times, but his ideas were still fairly revolutionary. His Christianity was more in line with What Christ is said to have taught (most of that is now lost it seems!)
