After my last post, I thought I’d check to see what Jupiter was doing at some famous demises. Naturally, the psycho-analyst Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) came to mind. He had some interesting ideas about the end of life. In particular, he was of the opinion that we were quite likely to carry on in some way. In other words, the death of the body was simply another step on the journey of our souls. I had a hidden link to him in my last post – here’s another.
So what about when Freud died? He’d just had a Jupiter return, Jupiter was exactly opposite his Mars and semi-sextile his Pluto (another death planet). Was Saturn doing anything in his chart too? Yes, semisquare natal Jupiter.
|RIP Jeff Buckley; always
nice to look at a pretty face
Just for a change of rhythm, let’s try an accidental death. The soulful singer Jeff Buckley (1966-1997) was killed when he went for a swim. Jupiter was exactly opposite his ascendant. You could say he was going to meet a greater teacher.
And just to get really sad, how about Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain (1967-1994) who died of a heroine overdose? Jupiter was exactly conjunct his Scorpio South Node, the point in your chart that symbolises where your psyche has come from. Scorpio, of course, is associated with death.
Both of these singers were born with the same intense mid-60s outer planetary signature as David Cameron, the PM. Go figure.
