U2 Ordinary Love Music Video - Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom
Golden Globe for Mandela film song U2 wins award

 

U2 formed in 1978 in Dublin, Ireland. Band members were teenagers who extracted the momentum of punk and heavy metal in the air, and added their own thunder and far sightedness to stir the European heart and soul. They put three successful albums into circulation during the early ‘80s: Boy 1980, October 1981, and War 1983.
The curtain went up for U2 when they released their debut album on October 20, 1980, under a celestial line up that resembled the sky the day John Lennon was born. Produced by Steve Lillywhite, the album received generally positive reviews.

 


U 2 take the stage at the Glastonbury Festival 2011

U2 set up their first album release [Boy] to coincide with the following influence during October 1980: Mars was in the sign Sagittarius @ 6 Sag 20' conjunct red alpha star Antares. Both the business planets were in conjunction by degree: Jupiter 28 Virgo 44' conjunct Saturn 3 Libra 37'. Neptune, the Utopia Urge was in the last decan of the Centaur at 20 Sag 34'.

Generally, the powerful forces of nature, in the form of the constellation Sagittarius, dominate the atmosphere at the time of early U2 releases. The Leo decanate of Sagittarius ruled by the Sun [last ten degrees of the sign Sagittarius] usually aims high and far as the consciousness expands and is enlightened.
The third decan of Sagittarius, named Sagitta, is said to represent the arrow with which Hercules slew the eagle [Aquila] that fed upon the liver of Prometheus. The word sagax of 'sagax ictus' is linked to the constellation Sagittarius, the Archer, from Latin sagire, to seek, 'seek to know'. The keywords for Sagittarius are 'I seek' and ‘I see’. The word, 'ictus' in medicine means sudden attack, blow, stroke, or seizure. In music 'ictus' is the instant when a beat occurs.

At the time of the release of October, their second album, on Oct 12, 1981, Mars was transiting [above] @ 25 Leo and conjunct Regulus, ‘the king maker’ alpha star. Both Mars and Regulus were sextile Jupiter and Pluto [growth, wealth, praise], and trine Neptune in Sagittarius @ 22 Sag 31’. However, Mars squared Uranus @ 28 Scorpio, indicating struggle, injuries, fighting spirit, and restlessness.

Venus was in Sagittarius @ 4 Sagittarius, conjunct Antares.

The band entered the studio in July 1981 to record October, but the album's recording sessions were complicated [Mars square Uranus carries problems with covert or overt enemy list] when the briefcase containing Bono's lyrics was stolen by fans after a show in Portland, Oregon. The band already booked studio time through the end of August and thus had to continue recording in spite of this, even improvising lyrics on some songs. Bono said of the recording process of October, "I remember the pressure it was made under, I remember writing lyrics on the microphone, and at £50 an hour, that's quite a pressure."

War is their third studio album, released on 28 February 1983. The album has come to be regarded as U2's first overtly political album, in part because of songs like "Sunday Bloody Sunday", "New Year's Day", as well as the title, which stems from the band's perception of the world at the time [Antares prominent on this day]; Bono stated that "war seemed to be the motif for 1982."

When War was released in 1983, Jupiter was @ 9 Sag 49’ conjunct Uranus 9 Sag 02', conjunct the alpha star Antares, symbolized by a pendent Ear Jewel associated with Indra [Hindu], and in Egypt, the symbol of Isis in the pyramid ceremonials, and Selket heralding the sunrise through her temples at the autumnal equinox about 3700-3500 B.C . Neptune was sojourning Sagittarius at 28 Sag 58’ in the Leo [Third] Decan of Sagittarius, Sagitta.

Note the dominant influence of the Decan Sagitta
The most powerful point in heaven on most of the dates mentioned above is found in Sagitta the Centaur's Arrow. Many graces flow from the benefit of fixed star Acumen in the star group, like blessings that fall from heaven to earth. The legacy of Sagitta is generally referred to as ‘a positive disposition’ [of the star Acumen], between 27 Sag and 28 Sag 49’ anciently interpreted as the ritual of opening the windbox, and inner reality awareness. When well aspected, Acumen signifies very sharp minds [the artists and their audience] and a perception well above average, as though perhaps 'blind' to what we see and take for granted, they see what we do not, at levels where eyesight does not reach. Not for nothing has the word, 'Acumen' come down to us as a term for a sharp mind.

 

                       

 

U2 3D at Sundance

It goes without saying that U2 3D is not merely a concert film; it is a concert experience—and one that will leave you fumbling around on the ground for your jaw. An electrifying collage of South American stadium concerts during U2’s 2006 "Vertigo" tour, U2 3D mobilizes digital 3-D and surround-sound technology to plunge us into almost supernatural proximity to the musicians. Shot at seven different shows, this production employs the greatest number of 3-D cameras ever used for a single project. A ring side seat.

U2: Rattle and Hum, a decade before, faithfully documents U2's 1987 Fall tour of North America. Up close and personal, yet highlighting their fantastic album, The Joshua Tree, U2 delivers favourites like, "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking" and manages to include their legendary performance with BB King.

 

Rattle and Hum
Release Date: USA 4 November 1988 USA

Saturn 29 Sag was conjunct Uranus 28 Sag [Sagittarius decan Sagitta]; and both Saturn and Uranus were sextile Mercury 27 Libra. Saturn is the agent of contraction and Uranus seeks boundless space, so great inner tension requires will power, fortitude, and tenacity to weather a time when the dark side arises. An ability to solve diffucult problems with a clever solution ushers in universal popularity.
Greater Fortune business planet Jupiter was in the reflex sign Gemini, in opposition by sign, but not by degree; however Jupiter was in retrograde motion on 4 November 88 @ 3 Gemini 25'.

Pluto @ 00 Capricorn 43', on cusp [on the fence] between Sagittarius and Capricorn
technically just leaving the Third Decan of Sagittarius, Sagitta, the Arrow and under the influence of Leo, the Winged Lion. Keen mind, master of minimalist design married to visionary thinking, encourages swift, vertical ascent. A fruitful search.
Venus was @ 5 Aquarius 57' conjunct Mercury 08 Aquarius 56', an influence that assists the escape of unwilling servants and captives; this influence helps with curing of diseases. Both Venus and Mercury [and Pluto] are conjunct the alpha Algedi @ 3 Aquarius 46'.

"In her shrine Vesta tends your fires: and from her you derive your skills and callings. For whatever needs fire to function and demands a renewal of flame for its work must be counted as of your domain. To pry for hidden metals, to smelt out riches deposited in the veins of the earth, to fold sure-handed the malleable mass—these skills will come from you, as will aught which is fashioned of silver or gold. That hot furnaces melt iron and bronze, and ovens give to the wheat its final form, will come as gifts from you. You also give a fondness for clothes and wares which dispel the cold, since your lot falls for all time in winter's season, wherein you shorten the nights you have brought to their greatest length and give birth to a new year by enlarging the daylight hours. Hence comes a restless quality in their lives..."
-Manilius, Astronomica

Bono spoke to an audience of 14,000 attendees who gathered to honor 5 special women selected to receive Minerva Awards this year. His comments included a personal love note from across the pond:

" .... Your country is not just a geographical location; your country is an idea, and it's a great idea. The idea that all men and women are created equal, that the poorest matter as much as the richest, and in a world of plenty, no one should die for lack of food in their belly, that where you live should not determine whether you live, or whether you die. The idea that our dreams are one and our fates are one. The idea that anything is possible, anything is possible -- that is the America the world needs right now, that's the America I've always loved. Amen?"

Minerva is the symbol of the Golden State, California, and personifies the spirit of community, the sciences, and higher wisdom. She is part of the ancient Olympian power triad of Jupiter, Juno, and Minerva [representing the perception of the two physical eyes and the third eye, or a spiritual view of the physical world.] Minerva is the central image on the Seal of California. She is known as Athena, or Pallas Athena in the Greek system, and is the patroness of Athens. The Helmet of Minerva and the image of the phoenix on the Statue of Freedom, atop the Capitol Building in Washington, D.C., inspire people to believe an invisible bi-coastal bond exists.

U2's Bono knighted by Queen ambassador
U2 singer Bono was presented with an honorary knighthood by representatives of the Queen of England on Thursday morning (March 29th) in Dublin. According to a post at the band's web site, Bono was knighted in recognition of his services to the music industry and for his humanitarian work. The vocalist said after receiving the award, "What a great year for an Irishman to receive an award from Great Britain...I couldn't be more proud. I would like to thank Her Majesty's Ambassador for pinning this award on me in my home town, and the band for not bursting my balloon."

Bono was joined at the ceremony by family, friends and bandmates, while a letter of congratulations from British Prime Minister Tony Blair was also read during the event.

The Queen's Ambassador said that the honorary knighthood was in recognition of "Bono's extraordinary and inspirational campaigning to fight global poverty and focus international attention on the plight of Africa; the AIDS pandemic; and the third world debt crisis."

Because the term "Sir" can be used only by British-born knights, the Irish singer will not be called "Sir Bono." He joked to reporters after the ceremony, "You can call me pretty much anything you want, except 'sir.' You can call me lord of lords or a demi-god."

The demi-god and his merely human bandmates are reportedly at work on a new album.

In 2006, Bono and Bobby Shriver launched Product (RED) to raise money from businesses to buy AIDS drugs for people in Africa unable to afford them. Product (RED) has an ongoing relationship with a number of iconic global brands that sell (RED) products and donate a percentage of the profits directly to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.

NEW YEAR HONOURS
The Associated Press reports [12/23/2006]Bono to receive honorary knighthood
Irish rocker and humanitarian Bono will become a knight of the British empire — but the U2 frontman
won't be called "Sir"... The Dubliner, whose real name is Paul Hewson, won't be entitled to use the
title "Sir" because he is not a national of Britain or the Commonwealth of former British colonies...
Previous non-British nationals who received knighthoods include Bono's fellow Dubliner and rocker-
turned-humanitarian Bob Geldof, Bill Gates, Placido Domingo, and Steven Spielberg.

item from 2004 - from TIME's Josh Tyrangiel

Late one night, during the forum I New York City, a dozen officials from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Episcopal Church, MTV and DATA (Debt, Aid, Trade for Africa) gathered for a strategy session in the back room of a Manhattan restaurant. The group was brainstorming on ways to convince Americans that saving Africa from financial ruin is in America’s best interest. As is frequently the case with debate on Africa, the discussion eventually sagged inotto weary frustration. By midnight, the air had leaked out of the room and, with it, any glimmer of productivity.

Then U2’s singer Bono strolled in.
Wearing a black leather jacket, his trademark blue-tinted shades and a roguish smile, he glided around the table, shaking hands and kissing cheeks. Like Superman turning into Clark Kent, the earnest political operative took over. Before the shy types could mumble about a brief previous encounter, he set them at ease, reciting their names and the circumstances of their last meeting: “Of course! The forum in Boston!” With his glad-handing complete, Bono—founder, spokesman and chief benefactor of DATA, a nonprofit, debt-relief advocacy group—sat down at the edge of the table and, at 1:00 a.m., recounted the details of his early-morning session with 30 G.O.P Congressmen. “I am not willing to give up on the Republicans,” he said of his efforts to convert the Congressmen on debt relief and increased aid to Africa. “They’re tough, but they’re willing to listen.”

IMDB biography: Nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2003 for his successful efforts to relieve third world debt and promote AIDS awareness in Africa.
Received the rank of Chevalier dans l'Ordre de la Legion d'Honneur (Knight in the Order of the Legion of Honor) from French President Jacques Chirac on February 28, 2003.

As Product (RED) launches in America, opening a new front in the war against AIDS, a few words from Bono...

October 12, 2006

Sometimes when I'm walking down the street a passer by will say "love your work on Africa, Bono, great cause." Sometimes, they wish they hadn't. As I'm Irish, I love to talk to strangers. I love to talk about Africa. It can be hard to get away... Each time it makes me think we need to do much more to get the message across that this is not a "cause," this pandemic that we and so many others are working on. 5,500 Africans dying a day of AIDS, a preventable, treatable disease is not a cause. 5,500 Africans dying each day is an emergency.

Enter Product (RED). (RED) is a new idea we're launching to work alongside the growing ONE Campaign to Make Poverty History. Over the past year, almost 2 million Americans have joined ONE, in churches and chatrooms... on soccer pitches and movie sets... at Nascar races and rock concerts. By 2008, we're aiming to have 5 million members – that's more than the National Rifle Association. Just think for a moment of what that kind of political firepower could achieve for the poorest of the poor...

A communion service based on the music of U2 has become the latest trend for a number of Episcopal churches across the U.S.

The U2Charist--named after the band and the Eucharist communion--weaves songs by the Irish rockers into a church service along with corresponding slides.
Reported by USA Today, the special service was the idea of the Reverend Paige Blair, an Episcopal priest in York Harbor, Maine, who held the first U2Charist at her church on July 31, 2005. [source: YAHOO Music]
