[Least-aspected Venus] [Mercury]
Herman Melville left a boring bank-clerk position in New York to sign on with the crew of a whaling ship. He deserted ship at the Marquesas in the South Seas and was then captured by a tribe of cannibals, rescued by an Australian whaler, and finally jailed in Tahiti. Melville’s many South Seas adventures–fictionalized in tales such as Typee: A Peep at Polynesian Life (1846), Omoo: A Narrative of Adventures in the South Seas (1847), Mardi: and a Voyage Thither (1849), Redburn (1849), White Jacket: or, The World in a Man-of-War (1850), and, of course, Moby Dick (1851)–occurred under Melville’s Primary Venus / Secondary Mercury Transcendental Midpoint-Field, which was directly over the South Seas. His Venus / Mercury Transcendental pairing symbolizes “creative / writing,” and it often appears in the horoscopes of other leading literary figures. (See my essays on T. S. Eliot and Bertrand Russell.)
