"I heard the news today, oh boy." Top fashion designer dies, apparent suicide. Over the top designer, unorthodox, unique, youngest ever, L'Enfant terrible, daring, edgy, fearless. As I read the articles about him, what did I expect to find in his chart? Uranus, surely strong and well aspected. Here we see his Uranus EXACTLY conjunct Jupiter in Libra and both EXACTLY opposition Chiron. Transiting Saturn is sitting right on top of that Uranus/Jupiter, and transiting Pluto squares it all. DO SOMETHING, they both insist in a chart full of action. The past 2 days the Moon in Capricorn triggered this massive cardinal T square. His mother died 10 days ago, and co-workers report he has been in bed ever since, dreading her funeral tomorrow. No time of birth was found, his Moon (representing here the Mother) was somewhere between 27 Aquarius and 9 Pisces.
Transiting Uranus also played a part, EXACTLY conjunct his Sun which is always EXACTLY opposition Pluto. There are many other transits showing up right now. For example, transiting Jupiter is EXACTLY conjunct his Mercury. And even Mercury, finally exiting morose Capricorn, entering Aquarius, was at the EXACT degree of his Jupiter yesterday, making a nice easy trine. Doesn't Jupiter offer hope, peace, joy? Sun always opposition Pluto, Death is always waiting in the wings, the eternal unbidden friend. His Saturn is conjunct Venus, a pairing that all too often tells the story "nobody loves me, everybody hates me, I'm gonna eat some worms". Combined with Sun and Mercury in Pisces, was he chronically depressed? Did Jupiter in Pisces offer him the hope of no pain, the peace of no suffering, joy at last in the arms of his always faithful friend, Death?
