Mars And The Two Mickeys

Just noticed a tweet from @WhatTheFFacts the fact that Walt Disney named Mickey Mouse after Mickey Rooney, whose mother he was dating at the time. This is funny enough especially since adult Mickey Rooney was only 5 foot 2 inches, mouse size.

Plus, lest we forget, Mickey Mouse/Rooney got to marry one of the most beautiful women of her time only the actress Ava Gardner!

Taking a quick look astrologically and voila – Walt Disney’s Sun Sign is positioned at 12 degrees Sagittarius (Sun in Saguttarius - Big Time Adventures on Horseback), and Rooney’s Mars is also at 12 degrees Sagittarius (Mars in Sagittarius - International Horsepower) an exact astro match. Mickey Mouse does indeed put one of Disney's alter ego's into action - Man or mouse. Both the Sun and Mars symbolise aspects of maleness and for both of these men 12 degrees of Sagittarius has a powerful resonance.
Astrology appears to feed and thread through everything. Little signs and symbols, loose connections and tight tie-ins. If we keep watching there is plenty to delight and plenty more to keep us questioning. As we open ourselves up to infinite possibilities infinity can also open up its possibilities to us. 
And now for some 'taking the Mickey' dancing ...
