While I wasn’t particularly a fan of David Bowie’s music, I found him irresistibly fascinating and certainly a harbinger of the Aquarian Age to come.

Pallas is a symbol of androgyny and as I have written before, I find it to be quite prominent in the charts of gender-fluid individuals.
Aquarius itself is ruled by Uranus (modern ruler; the traditional ruler is Saturn). Uranus instigates radical behavior that revolutionizes the way we view our world. The instinct for innovation and eccentricity was particularly strong in him as was the desire to continually reinvent himself.
