The Real Rocket Man

Elton John discloses that his biopic was difficult to watch.

The Rocket Man film is on its way to the U.S.A. Every effort has been made to capture the times, the music and the musician. The Internet is filled with filled with accounts about the intensive care that taken in making this flashy film. Several reviews remind us that despite the spectacular nature of Elton’s music, his life follows the template of so many notable musicians.

Ultimately the manner that this reenactment of Elton John’s life is received does not matter all that much. This musician, singer and performer has already made his mark. The surprising element is the forthright nature of Elton’s remarks about seeing his life on the screen. They sound very much like a past-life review while still in a physical body and down here on earth.

As to what is next for the Rocket Man. He’s in his early seventies, appears to be happily married and has two young children. Not only can he now afford to be honest, but it suits him well. Some of his insights appear in the Guardian feature  ” Elton John: They wanted to tone down the sex and drugs. But I haven’t lived a PG life. ” It’s a good read. These excerpts are his own words.

“I was in the cinema for about 15 minutes before I started crying. Not crying as in the occasional tear quietly tricking down my cheek: really sobbing, in that loud, unguarded, emotionally destroyed way that makes others turn around and look at you with alarmed expressions.”

“… unlike my childhood, it was my own fault. No one forced me to do drugs and drink. In fact, more than a few people tried to warn me I was out of control. It took a fairly Herculean effort to get yourself noticed for taking too much cocaine in the music industry of 1970s LA,” 

Elton John

Elton John was born on a Tuesday in the zodiac sign of Aries. Mars is the ruler of Tuesday and Aries, so it operates both as his Day Ray and  Sun Sign. Doubled Mars energy is exceptionally strong. Needless to say, John has a great deal of Mars push in his nature. He truly lives up to the title of Rocket Man.

The Mars Day Ray creates continual energy which needs to be utilized constructively. Just like the dance beat of Elton John’s music, it just keeps going until exhaustion sets in. Mars imparts strong appetites and can create additions. Still it has the capacity to overcome problems with the proper motivation.

As we fine tune Elton’s dynamics, we see that his Mars is located in the compassionate sign of Pisces. This explains his emotional responses and his love for over-the-top display. So the Mars push is always there, but it is generally softened in his personal understandings and imaginative approaches.

Aries is the most dynamic sign of the zodiac. It is a great originator of all things bold and brave. It also keeps things working until it runs out of juice. Elton was professionally creative and entertaining but personally rather self-destructive until he grew older and slowed down some.
