whiney, sarcastic, provocative words spew forth from his mouth faster
than his colleague, Dan Fouts, could throw an out pattern. What on Earth
(or in the heavens) powers the mind and mouth of Monday Night Football’s
new analyst, Dennis Miller?
He seems like a nice guy. After all, Dennis Miller (born November 3,
1953, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania) does have a Libra Moon to soften
his Sun and hard-cracking, dry Saturn in the bottom-dredging sign of
Scorpio. He’s even got Mars in Libra. Shouldn’t the energy he expends be designed
to tip the scales (balance and the scales are associated with Libra)
in the interest of fairness? Like someone hunting scorpions in the desert,
Miller leaves no stone, no topic and no person unturned. With his Venus-Neptune
conjunction in Libra as well, Miller might contend that he’s an equal opportunity
rant man. He covers it all with Neptunian mist. He has a keen understanding of our illusions
(Neptune) of what we hold too near and dear (Venus).
Tell the Truth
would have been a great guest on the old game show To Tell the
Truth. That’s what he does for a living—at least his version
of the truth. With his Mercury barely over the line in the astrological
state of Sagittarius, Miller has no choice but to blurt out the spikes
originating deep inside his psyche. I’m convinced this is the only thing
that prevents his head from exploding. Mercury, organizing the arrow
quiver of the archer (the archer is the symbol for Sagittarius), manages
to find all the necessary hidden barbs to give Miller his reputation
as a loquacious linguist with a sardonic sarcasm rivaling the razor
edge of Saturn’s sickle.
He’s a Scorpio
you’re a Scorpio? When people find you’re born under this sign, they
either dash for cover or get in your face to find out if all the dastardly
things written about Scorpio could possibly be true. It’s lonely inside
Scorpio. Ask Miller. Even though he’s got a great wife and kids, it’s
impossible for anyone outside himself to pervade those black holes of
the psyche that bend every reality into a twisted perception, which
hey, comes out sounding glib and funny.
somber Saturn also lingering in the shadows of the deep, dark Scorpio,
Miller must ask things like: “Why is it not fun?” “Why are people not
happy?” “How in tarnation did most people f*** things up
this much anyway?” So he makes us laugh. Often we laugh painfully, embarrassed
by what he said. And we’re even more embarrassed that we’ve often thought
the same thing. With stunning Mercury in Sagittarius alacrity and torch-bearing
veracity, Miller tells the truth of what the majority thinks (if they
think, of course). He’s a dredging barge of the river of the aggregate
human psyche, which, of course, is associated with Scorpio.
a Shadow Reflect Light?
by nature, can’t control its fate, which is to reveal the darker images
and motivations of the human condition. And it must ignite the fires
of Hades to the point where they can illuminate and inspire even the
edges of heaven. Apparently, Dennis Miller accepted this job description
wholeheartedly on incarnation. If you find him edgy, then consider that
his Scorpio-Sagittarius combinations offend your sacred cows and sensibilities,
at which point he would suggest (with that trademark desert-dry verbal
humidity) that you become a senseless vegetarian. Balance, part of the
Libran dynamic, swings to the other absurdity. His penetration into
hard-life reality forces us to reconsider our positions on all of our
closely-held beliefs. One way or the other, you get swayed.
like it or not, gets to the bottom layer of silt in the Mississippi
River of muddled psyches. His Martian edge, Mercurial points and Scorpio
overlays stir the waters into frenzied debate. He now takes on the sport
of football, which by its nature offers speculations on the topic of
sanity, not to mention intelligence (I’ll leave that to Miller). We
eagerly wait as a sacred American institution—Monday Night Football—willingly
places its neck in Miller’s lexical guillotine.
Will He Do?
How will Dennis do on his first night out? With Jupiter in Gemini and
Saturn in Taurus opposing Mercury, the planet of communication, expect mixed reviews. Those who love Dennis Miller will enjoy the show, and true believers in his dry wit will continue to do so. Those who find him obnoxious will use Saturn's presence to
classify his humor as adolescent. The upside is that Miller will have
people who don't normally watch football tuning in, at least at first.
It's all about money. With Saturn currently in Taurus, as long as he
draws, he's secure. But you just watch. He's gonna be better than we
