One Libra Against the World
Roseanne Barr has walked a rough road to get to fame and fortune. She is a Libra, with a Scorpio Mercury and a Taurus Moon. She is like a judgment machine, churning out (unpopular) opinions like a Nike sweat shop. The Moon is the Midwestern stalwart. She says what she feels. She means what she feels what she says. She always held an ideological view of the American family. She developed a feminist working class hero in the face of childhood alienation and the bitter resistance to her ideas from the male patriarchy that run TV networks. The Ophiuchus Venus is the complete alienation from the the white men in suits who sabotaged her every move. Only her stubborn Taurus persistance and menace were weapons against these nay-sayers, censors and male chauvinist pigs. She has a Mars-Uranus opposition, she's both highly emotional and unpredictable, she'll never integrate her multiple personalities. Barr's real problems are her Neptune/Saturn square Mars. Her violent outbursts, and alcohol and drug related issues are public record. It's part of Barr's T-square, something she has had to grapple with in spite of, and as a hindrance to, her great writing talent. Although Venus escapes a bad aspect, in the secretive, unpredictable sign of Ophiuchus, it could only mean difficulty with her partners. Ophiuchus actually saves people, as if by magic. She saved her husbands, her show, her network. She made money for everybody around her as she became a franchise. But she also threw it away in a querulous fit of destructive Taurus anger. She could destroy what she had built. If it weren't for her Aries Jupiter trine with a Sagittarius Mars, she would have been destroyed by the system, and not beat them at their own game. Audiences, however, responded, making her TV program, "Roseanne" number one for seven years in a row.
