Bill Cosby 2015 Update
Copyright August 15 2015 by Naomi C Bennett
"In September 2014 a new, well researched, biography by Mark Whitacker has the birth time of 3 pm on July 12, 1937, Anna gave birth to a baby boy at three o'clock in the afternoon at German-town Hospital" 1
This is an updated addition to my original article dated 1997 using this new birth data from 2014, although most of my analysis is not dependent upon Cosby's birth time.
Since October 2014 until the end of 2015, Bill Cosby has been under attack for his sexual behavior of drugging young women. On July 18, 2015 The New York Times, having obtained the complete deposition of sealed court records from Andrea Constand's 2005 civil lawsuit that was settled out of court. In a deposition, Cosby testified he obtained Quaaludes for consensual sex with women. On July 27, 2015, New York magazine's cover featured images of 35 women sitting in chairs with the last chair empty, suggesting there may be more victims who have not come forward yet. Eleven other women known to New York magazine who allege sexual assault by Cosby declined to be photographed and interviewed for the feature. 2
The new horoscope for Bill Cosby is:
Bill Cosby Natal
This has been a very public dressing down of Cosby's accomplishments as transiting Saturn (the planet of law, restriction and responsibility) has been in Scorpio, the sign of sex. But it took more than one aspect to make this come into public focus. The North Lunar Node which has been passing through Libra is in the sign of balance and fairness. When an eclipse occurs with this node, life altering events can occur. So the eclipses in 2014-15 have been passing in hard aspects through all of Cosby's Sun, Jupiter, Mercury and Pluto positions. The first big public explosion of his prior sexual predatorship occurred November 2014, just after an important eclipse period in October 2014 that impacted Cosby's chart. Note the 90 degree transit graph below with the yellow shading of the lunar node in yellow. The transiting Lunar Nodes has been squaring Cosby's cluster of Sun, Jupiter, Mercury and Pluto. Not only is it in Libra the sign of associates, fairness and balance but it is also in Cosby's Twelfth House. The Twelfth House can be the house of self-undoing but it is also the house of Cosby's secrets being exposed.
Transiting Saturn was doing its second pass on Cosby's Mars and squaring his MC. His public reputation, business relationships, and family loyalties were about to be affected. This is marked in orange. Then a third aspect of transiting Neptune squared Cosby's Venus occurred with relationships that were hidden were coming out into public view. This was the start of a series of news events as his prior sexual hunting for young women (Cosby's Sun conjunct Pluto opposing Jupiter creating excess) continued through the years but in 2014 the monetary payoffs of his victims stopped working for himÂ (transiting Saturn conjunct Cosby's Mars). His Ascendant in Scorpio the sign of sex just added to his desire nature with Cosby's Uranus on the Descendant pointing to unusual and extreme methods to meet other partners. It is this very same factor that gave him the drive to find silliness in the everyday things of life that fuels his comedy. It is this same natal aspect that drives him to great heights of success (Cosby's Sun, Pluto opposing Jupiter). The strength of these natal aspects can cut both ways with great success and great excess.
The saga continued in 2015 when Saturn (in orange) again entered Scorpio in June 2015. This was another important period. This third transit is usually the culmination of the prior events coming to a conclusion. At this same time Uranus in Capricorn (in lavender) is opposing Cosby's Sun. Near June 28th, the Sun was squaring the north Lunar Node with an OOB (Out of Bounds) Mars. This is like a mini-eclipse period but the Sun is square the Nodes so there is no physical eclipse. The older writers call this a Lunar Bending, but Carl Payne Tobey called it a Moon Wobble. It is a period of human instability and surprising events occur. This was most unusually since transiting Mars was in a very extreme position being Out of Bounds and near the Sun. Many violent abusers of power can occur with police and sexual dominance.
"As of July 2015, two related lawsuits against Cosby are pending, including one for defamation of character... Cosby has been accused of drug facilitates sexual assault by 50 women, although he has denied any wrongdoing and has not been charged with any crime. The dates of the alleged assaults span from 1965 to 2008. Cosby has declined to publicly discuss the accusations in past interviews offering no comment that had released the document to the public domain, published a summary and excerpts. Cosby's testimony shows a history of casual sex involving use of Quaaludes with a series of young women. Throughout his testimony, Cosby maintained that any drug use or sex was consensual.
In July 2015, the Associated Press obtained court records from Andrea Constand's 2005 civil lawsuit that was settled out of court. In a deposition, Cosby testified he obtained Quaaludes from gynecologist Leroy Amar, who knew that Cosby had no intention of taking the drugs himself. Cosby instead intended to give them to women he wanted to have sexual relations with and admitted that he had given the drug to at least one woman and other people. Cosby admitted knowing it was illegal at the time to dispense the drug to other people. Amar would later have his medical license revoked in California and New York. The judge ruled that releasing the sealed.
Two people who have previously defended Cosby, and believed in his innocence, changed their minds; American actress and talk show host Whoopi Goldberg and Joseph C. Phillips (a Cosby Show regular for three years) each made public statements on July 15, 2015. Â Goldberg, for the first time, suggested Cosby may be guilty, while Phillips was more forthright, saying "Of course Bill Cosby is guilty". Also on July 15, 2015, President Barack Obama was asked at a news conference if Bill Cosby's Medal of Freedom award (which Cosby received from President George W Bush in 2002) would be revoked...
On August 4, 2015, a Los Angeles superior court judge ordered Cosby to give a sworn deposition in Judy Huth's pending lawsuit that alleges he sexually abused her as a 15-year old at the Playboy Mansion in 1974. The deposition is scheduled for October 9, 2015 ." 3
Various honoraries, sponsorships (money) and TV reruns (royalties) have been cancelled in July and August 2015. But Cosby is worth between $300-500 million so he should be fine financially. But the final chapter in Cosby's saga will begin with the eclipse period in September 2015 just as this court trial is scheduled for October 9th. This event will change his life into a new direction with the transit of Uranus opposing Cosby's Sun conjunct Pluto. The youthful women of his sexual obsession (Cosby's Sun conjunct Pluto which rules affairs, risk taking and youth) get their day in public court. At the same time transiting Saturn (law and order) does it's last pass in Scorpio, the sign of sex. Please note that transiting Mars in Libra (the planet of sex in the sign of balance and fairness) opposes Cosby's Saturn in Aries just as a ruling of justice is likely to be made. More than likely, Cosby will fade out of the news by early January 2016 but his life and career will be forever changed. Transiting Saturn will start to square Cosby's Moon late 2016 when tight money and more fallout with women (his wife??) and civil lawsuits will form. The loss of more of his money is likely.
