313 March 13: Jamie Dimon

leave a comment »

James “Jamie” Dimon (born March 13, 1956) is the current CEO and chairman of JPMorgan Chase & Co, and previously served as a Class A director of the Board of Directors of the New York Federal Reserve, a three year term which started January 2007.[1][2] Dimon was named to Time magazine‘s 2006, 2008, 2009, and 2011 lists of the world’s 100 most influential people. He was also named to Institutional Investor’s Best CEOs list in the All-America Executive Team Survey from 2008 through 2011.[3] He was named the top CEO of the Year in 2011.

Pisces born on March 13 are very dynamic individuals to say the least.  Think of them like sharks: they are always in motion.  They have the cyclothymic ability to function on very little sleep yet function very well.

They are a people with remarkable talents and abilities, and often risk losing sight of  their primary goals  because their skills pull  them in  variety of directions.

Those born on March 13  are said to  have a fiery nature.  The fact that Mr Dimon’s moon is in Aries – a fire sign-  only enhaces this aspect of his personality.  The March 13 fire manifests itself in the form of inspirational, far-reaching and at times perhaps some revolutionary ideas.

The number 12  plays a significant role both in the universe — think 12 months,  and 12 apostles,– and in those born on March 13ths lives, as does the number 7.

March 13 people generally have a large circle of friends,  they respect the emotional boundaries of  their friends, family members, and lovers and also demand that they do the same. They tend to keep some emotional distance from  lovers or mates.

March 13 people need to be emotionally engaged in their work. They have a sense of adventure and are not afraid to strike out in a different direction. Although their financial situation is often in flux, they always seem able to ride out the lean times.

March 13 men and women are not as committed to achieving goals as they are to achieving goals their own way. They have a strong sense of self and will not allow themselves to be micro-managed by inferiors. They are not overly concerned with obstacles or hurdles only answers and solutions.

On a side note, Albert Einstein. 14 March 187918 April 1955) was a German-born theoretical physicist who developed the  theory of general relativity, effecting a revolution in physics.

Kurt Cobain: When rock becomes religion our gods are rendered mortal

by Charles Aaron

December 1994

If growing up as a Pisces on bended knees in the church of punk rock taught
me anything, it was never to trust anything or anyone, even myself, particularly
if there was money or love or God involved, never trust a melody because
melodies sell people things they don’t need, always place blame and always
accept it, and remember that, in the words of punk forefather Graham Greene, “We
are all of us resigned to death: It’s life we aren’t resigned to.”

In other words, punk rock kept me from wanting to kill myself as a dopey kid,
but left me with very little to live for as a dopey adult, except the laughter
of survival or some such. The happiest people are the best liars. Stunted punk
ideas like that still scurry from the right side of my brain to the left. And I
say the “church” of punk rock because Johnny Rotten was a tortured Catholic, and
I was a tortured Baptist, and my punk-rock dream come true wasn’t some quaint
DIY vision of hearing “real” rock’n’roll again. It was about rescuing Jesus from
the repressive lying assholes and convincing Him to scream “Fuck off and die” at
everything and everyone I hated. Punk rock was my substitute for spiritual
ritual, my excuse for living. And it inevitably had to fail.

Kurt Cobain, born too late in a trailer park in Aberdeen, Washington, felt
cheated that he didn’t even get his chance to fail. He missed punk proper,
missed the black-joke blubbering of hardcore, missed the Beatles AND the Knack,
for that matter. Instead his parents divorced, his father beat the shit out of
him, and he dropped out of high school. But once he got his band together (Dave
Grohl on drums instead of those other guys), he gave us Nevermind, its title a
blunted response, either intentionally or unintentionally, to the Sex Pistols’
Never Mind The Bollocks. And more than a decade after the fact, Nirvana
perfectly expressed how shitty and sad and funny-pathetic millions of so-called
normal kids now felt, instead of just speaking to a bunch of “weirdos” and
“fags”. With an album produced so that it blared comfortably next to Guns N’
Roses on the radio, and because of the clever video for “Smells Like Teen
Spirit”, and because Kurt Cobain was a great song- writer, Nirvana became a No.
1 punk band. Fairly legitimately, no big swindle.

But unlike other insecure, long-suffering punk grunts, I felt more
disoriented than validated or vindicated. As time went on, questions nagged.
What does an invigorating postmortem on punk offer anyone in the ’90s? Aren’t
Nirvana fans just gonna use Cobain, a deeply conflicted dweeb with serious
emotional and physical problems, as some kind of spiritual martyr? Aren’t we
going to end up gawking at the same lame suicidal striptease that Sid Vicious
and Darby Crash put us through? Still, I got fed up with indie types bitching
about the band, calling them the postpunk Police, not acknowledging their
talent. I guess I wanted to stupidly give myself over to punk one more time.

The End of an Era: Steve Jobs 2-24-1955 to 10-5-2011

leave a comment »

Steve Jobs, one of the  greatest Pisces visionaries since Albert Einstein, one of the first pioneers  in first personal computing then mobile-computing,   a genius, a historical figure of the likes of Thomas Edison and Henry Ford. Mr Jobs died today Wednesday, October 5, 2011. He was 56.

The hard-driving executive pioneered the concept of the personal computer and of navigating them by clicking onscreen images with a mouse. In more recent years, he introduced the iPod portable music player, the iPhone and the iPad tablet — all of which changed how we consume content in the digital age.

With the risk of trivializing a human life into a mere atrological data point, Mr Jobs was one Pisces who stood above the rest.  As we as a world and as a species  move closer to the  Age of Aquarius.  An age where men and women of all races are predicted to be on a much more equal footing with each other, Steve Jobs shouldered a lot of that effort over the last 30 years.
