Amy Winehouse, dead at 27

Amy Winehouse dead The number of musicians who have died at age 27 (putting her in the sadly named “27 Club”) has just increased by one.  Amy Winehouse died Saturday July 23 of a drug overdose at her home in London.

I profiled Amy Winehouse back in 2007:

Amy Winehouse is a Virgo (see chart), the sign known for its reticent and modest behavior which just shows how little validity Sun Sign astrology has. There is another brand of Virgo which some call the “Radical Virgo” in which the famous Virgo powers of analysis and perfectionism are combined with other elements in the chart to create a more reactionary personality. Amy’s chart shows six planets in fire signs which keep her locked forever in a battle between the conservative side of her Virgo nature and the urge that the fire element evokes for a freer life.

Her Sun is squared by Neptune, the planet that dissolves the boundaries of ordinary reality. While this combination stimulates tremendous creativity, there can also be difficulty establishing boundaries and confusion over one’s own identity as defined by the Sun. Neptune conjoins her Moon which is another significator for creative brilliance as well as musical ability, but again there is a struggle to keep one’s feet on the ground. This strong Neptunian signature often suggests an individual who is either a saint or a drunk as the desire to transcend reality can go in either direction. …

This conjunction of Jupiter and Uranus is opposed by Chiron, a small planet in the Kuyper belt that signifies the Wounded Healer. When in a difficult aspect to other planets, Chiron indicates a deep psycho-emotional wound that doesn’t heal, but which ultimately serves as the guide to […]

The astrology of the Oslo bombing

Oslo bombing astrologyOn Friday July 22nd at 3:26 pm local time, a bomb ripped through government building in Oslo.  This attack was followed by the murder of 87 people at a Labor Party youth camp not far away.

The chart for Norway originates in its independence from Sweden on June 7, 1905 at 11:00 am local time in Oslo.  The astrology for the day of the bombings is rather startling.  Mars was sitting on the South Node last week and astrologer Martin Davis wrote on his Facebook page:

Astrologers: Note that Mars [anger] is coming to conjoin the South Node [past issues] now. This is a difficult combination – often in disaster charts. This conjunction in airy Gemini correlates with angry budget discussions, angry American football contract discussions and the uncovering of newspaper [Gemini] wrong doings. It’s on the natal Mars of any July 4th US chart. Buckle up when driving.

As we now know the US chart wasn’t affected (except by the angry budget discussions part) but the bombing in Oslo occurred when the conjunction of transiting Mars and the South Node was exactly conjunct Pluto in the Norway national chart.  At the same time, transiting Chiron was exactly conjunct the South Node in the Norway chart.

The young man who committed this horrific crime, Anders Breivik, was born February 13, 1979 (time unknown).  His Sun is conjunct Mars and Mercury in the idealistic sign of Aquarius.  Aquarius is often concerned with ideas of Utopia.  Uranus is square to those Aquarius planets, giving him a big does of Aquarian/Uranian Utopia and the need for revolutionary activity.  His Virgo Moon conjoins Saturn suggesting that he is accustomed to working alone.

Supporting this theme of the “Loner” is the singleton Venus in the […]

Pluto has a new moon!

Uranus rules surprising events, so it’s an interesting synchronicity that a new Moon around Pluto is discovered just as the square between Uranus and Pluto reaches its closest point until next year.  Temporarily named P-4, the new moon may ultimately be called Cerberus after the dog that guards the gates of Hades.

The New Horizons mission is expected to reach Pluto in 2015, just as the square of Uranus to Pluto reaches its completion.

The astrology of Michele Bachmann, Part I

Michele Bachmann astrologyNow that the news is out that Michele Bachmann, a Republican presidential contender for the 2012 election, suffers from migraines I am eager to profile her.  I found a great article from Patrick Watson (sadly now disappeared from the intertubes)  in which Bachmann reports on the time of her birth, but not whether it was morning or afternoon:

Q. We went to the Black Hawk County courthouse and asked for a genealogical copy of your birth certificate, not an official, certified copy, just a genealogical copy, but they declined to release it. Would you be willing to give us a copy?

A. “Of course, you can have my birth certificate! As a matter of fact I brought it with me the last time I went to Iowa in case anyone asked. I was born at Allen Memorial Hospital in Waterloo, and I was born at 12:08 on April 6. My dad was actually in college at the time at what was called the state teachers’ college which is of course now UNI, and that’s where I was born.

Patrick has posted both charts so now I have to decide which one to use.  I have to say I prefer the 12:08 pm chart because her Aries Sun sits right on the Midheaven, where she would feel a need to live out her life  in the public arena rather than in the fourth house in the 12:08 am chart where she would have a very deep inner world.

The AM chart also shows Libra on the Midheaven rather than Aries which would suggest an individual who is a bridge builder rather than someone who says exactly what they think.  I’m not so sure I see the Neptune in the tenth house either – […]

A video game about chakras

Now I KNOW we’re in the Aquarian Age!

Deepak Chopra video game

Deepak Chopra, the Ayurvedic physician who has done a great deal to bring holistic healing and Eastern mysticism to the West over the past many years (and fellow )  is working on the creation of a video game to explain how the chakra system works.

Since the game is launching in November of this year it must have been conceived over the past few years when Chiron (which actually rules the energy system that runs through the chakras) and Neptune (spirituality and the arts) were conjunct in Aquarius (technology and innovation).

“Deepak Chopra’s Leela” from will use the Xbox 360 console’s controller-free, camera-based Kinect system to detect users’ bodies, then guide them through meditation exercises. (An edition for Nintendo’s Wii requires players to hold a controller.) “Leela,” which translates to “play” in Sanskrit, is less of a game and more of an experience, though there are a few gameplay elements.

Seven different interactive exercises based on the seven “chakras,” the points along the body that Chopra says serve as energy centers, task players with moving their bodies to control graphics onscreen set to a soothing soundtrack. The mini-games increase in difficulty, but “Leela” places no importance on a final score or even finishing the exercises.

The root chakra exercise, for example, directs players to tilt their hips to seed a virtual planet, while the heart chakra exercise uses players’ hands to harness fireballs that release gems imbedded in descending rocks.

Now that Chiron and Neptune have moved into Pisces, the sign where boundaries are dissolved and all becomes one, the urge for the spiritual experience of transcendence and oneness will become stronger and more powerful.  Along […]
