Aries Mercury opposite Libra Jupiter evokes the famous topos of the Wild West, the ’Lonely Hero’ or ’Enforcer’ who is a fearless and hard-boiled character, often involved in vengeance plots. Once in the past he had suffered certain injuries and hereby confronted the worldly unfairness. He is closely attached to the principles of the morality and the justice (Libra Jupiter), but at the same time he knows he is the only man having the guts (Aries Mercury) to re-establish the damaged ‘world order’. The best-known figure of this type is ’Harmonica’ (Charles Bronson) in the unequalled ’spaghetti’ western movie called ’Once Upon a Time in the West’ (1968).
Abney Park also shaped this type, without the personal motive of revenge, within a Victorian milieu. The ’Victorian Vigilante’ who is a voluntary ’patrol’ of London in the night, always ready to fight for justice – and for the kicks. ’Each night as I go walking underneath the lamplight, / I bring my baritsu and I’m ready for a fight, / My boots are shiny brown / And my cane’s of oak, / I’ll unleash some hurting on you, / Justice I’ll invoke! // ‘Cause I’m a Victorian vigilante, / Bring some justice on your head / From the palace to the riverside, / For your troubles you’ll get bled…’ 🙂 >>> More Astro Info
