Why Roman Polanski was arrested now..


Like many others I can’t help but wonder why Roman Polanski was arrested now. However having said that, the heavens certainly seem to support the action. For what is Virgo – if not a virgin and what is Saturn if not the old man. At present, Mercury is poised between both planets – and what is this if not a great news story ? The heavens might not dictate – but they do reflect. 

Roman Polanski initially fled the US on Feb. 1st 1978, near the close of the transit of Saturn over his Sun. This transit in itself clearly relates to the time Polanski had spent in prison in the US undergoing psychiatric examination by two court-appointed psychiatrists. In the flight chart (Feb. 1st 1978  to London) Uranus in Scorpio squares Venus conjunct the Sun in Aquarius. Venus square Uranus has a long standing reputation when it comes down to sexual behaviour that society label’s “deviant”. While Uranus is the sudden action, the hasty move.

But let’s get back to the main thread here. The horoscope of Roman Polanski (18 August 1933, 10.30 Paris, France) For if there is an answer to why Polanski has been arrested now, the answer lies there.


What springs out here, is the conjunction of the Moon – beautifully placed in its own sign  Cancer- but conjunct with Pluto. Pluto ? Pluto? Wasn’t he that fellow who raped Proserpine? I recognise a familiar tune here. Pluto is the powerful encounter on an emotional level, it is not the warm embrace.  It is the death and resurrection of the feeling nature. Uranus and Mars both square the Moon -and Pluto….making it these planets act as a funnel for the energy of this very powerful cardinal t-square.  This is pretty compulsive viewing. So…Think Rosemary’s baby …… and we’ll say no more.

What also springs out – is Roman Polanski’s Venus/Jupiter conjunction in Virgo in the 12th house (the house of incarceration and self-undoing). Jupiter enlarges everything it touches but is in detriment here. The fascination with the young girl who was raped, might suggest that the urge to play out the t-square somehow took control of Polanski’s mind. As I write, Saturn in Virgo transits Polanski’s radix conjunction.  It is interesting to note then, that the first time that Roman Polanski experienced a Saturn transit through Virgo was in 1950/1951. On 5/1/1950, when Polanski was 17, he lost his virginity to a wayward 14 year old!!

Once again Saturn it seems is able to hang on to his reputation as the Lord of Karma – as we sow – so shall we reap. And justice – Jupiter -must be blind.
