BoJack HORSEman is an animated Netflix Original Series (SON/SUN) that came out August 22, 2014.
“The series is set in a world where humans and anthropomorphic animals live side by side, specifically focusing on the life of washed-up 1990s sitcom Horsin’ Around star BoJack Horseman as he plans his big return to celebrity relevance with a tell-all biography that he dictates to his ghostwriter Diane Nguyen.”
The first thing that caught my eye was, of course, the HORSE. Why? Because 2014 is the year of the GREEN WOOD HORSE! BoJack Horseman resides in HollyWOOD. In the photo below, note how we get a glimpse of the HollyWOOD hills that are GREEN in color.In episode 3 (“Prickly Muffin”), we meet a grown-up Sarah Lynn, who is featured on Excess HollyWOOD. “A Ryan Seacrest Type,” whom she’s interviewed by, says “Sarah Lynn wants you to know that she is hot to TROT.” HORSEs TROT.
BoJack offers WHEAT Bran to Todd. BoJack Horseman premiered on the cusp of LEO transcending into the sign of VIRGO. VIRGO is represented by holding the WHEAT. The painting behind Sarah Lynn and Todd features WHEAT (VIRGO) and the SUN (LEO).
As we’ve learned from many of my previous posts, HORSE is a slang term for HEROIN. In the scene below, BoJack’s roommate Todd tells BoJack that he has accidentally stepped on a needle, and that he thinks he may now be addicted to HEROIN.
In episode 4 (“Zoës and Zeldas”), Gloria Steinem is roasted by Comedy Central. Gloria Steinem used to be married to David BALE–as in a BALE of HAY that HORSEs eat. David BALE is father of Christian BALE. I’ve written about Christian BALE in relation to HORSEs here.
MR. PEANUTBUTTER is an anthropomorphic Labrador Retriever who is BoJack’s former sitcom rival. HORSEs love PEANUT BUTTER! Mister Ed (another Mr./Mister) is another talking HORSE from a comedy sitcom. In fact, reports circulated during and after the show’s run that the talking effect was achieved by crew members applying PEANUT BUTTER to the HORSE‘s gums.
In the next couple of pictures below, check out how the SHEEP/GOAT/RAM is implemented into certain scenes. The Chinese year of the SHEEP/GOAT/RAM will take place next year. 2015 will also be the same color (GREEN) and element (WOOD). The creators of these types of shows start to give you hints of the next animal that will appear in the Chinese zodiac ahead in time.
In Orange Is The New Black Season 2 (which also came out this year–2014), the HORSE is mentioned many times. I decoded Orange Is The New Black Season 1 here.In episode 2, we meet Vee (22/11:11), a HEROIN dealer. Taystee Jefferson works for her, and purchases a HORSE stamp at a craft store to help “brand” their product (the HEROIN). One of the characters mentions she is 23 (years old). Pennsatucky heads to the oral surgeon to get new TEETH. TEETH are a symbol connected to the TRIDENT←(means 3 TEETH = 3 + T/20 = 23), which connects back to the HORSE. Psi is the 23rd letter of the Greek alphabet. It resembles the TRIDENT. W is the 23rd letter of the English alphabet. It too, resembles the TRIDENT.
In episode 3, we meet a new character–BROOK Soso, who shares stories about her best friend named MEADOW. HORSEs roam on MEADOWs and drink from BROOKs. Before her arrest, BROOK worked on an organic FARM. We also find HORSEs on FARMs.
In episode 8 (“Appropriately Sized Pots“), ROSa←(ROSE/hORSE) asks the nurse on duty about her ring–how many CARATS (CARROTS) it is. HORSEs eat CARROTS. CARROTS are ORANGE.
In episode 9 (“40 Oz. of Furlough“), Nicky admits her love for HEROIN (HORSE). She explains how the drug got its name–because it makes one feel HEROIC→HERU-ic. HERU is just another name for HORUS (HORSE). In the same episode, Piper is seen going into a convenience store to pick up an alcoholic beverage. She opts for the COLT 45 instead of the champagne. A COLT is a young male HORSE. At the end of the episode, Vee takes a CARROT from Red‘s kitchen and eats it. Also, Taystee gives Nicky some HEROIN.
In episode 11 (“Take a Break from Your Values“), Daya presents her comic to Piper that features a HORSE.
Other (Western) astrological references:
In episode 1 (“Thirsty Bird“), Mazall guesses Piper’s sign–GEMINI. This same inmate (an astrology buff), mentions that MERCURY will soon be in retrograde. The planet MERCURY rules GEMINI. When Season 2 was released (6.6), MERCURY was on its way into retrograde (June 7th). June 6th is when GEMINI is in effect. Piper says her bEARTHday is June 7th. ROS[E]-a has CANCER. CANCER comes right after GEMINI.
One thing I have noticed between both Seasons 1 and 2 is that the script is following the precession of the zodiac. Season 1 introduced us to Pisces/time (12th sign). We found out Poussey is an Aries (1st sign), and that Miss Claudette is a Taurus (2nd sign). In Season 2, Piper reveals she’s a Gemini (3rd sign). Rosa has Cancer (4th sign).
