The sad news came in this evening, Feb 11, 2012, Whitney Houston, extraordinary woman, singer, has passed at 48. My heart is sad at her difficult times and now her passing.

Whitney Houston, August 9, 1963 Leo

For those of you interested in the Astro*Logical charts, we do have her birth time, so her birth chart is accurate. She was an Aug 9 Sun/Venus Leo with Moon/Jupiter in Aries, Pisces Ascendant. Sun/Venus is beauty and blessings, self esteem issues, indulgences. Moon/Jupiter Aries can go a long way from home, have fame for being the first, #1, a leader. Pisces is an artist, a musician.

Written in Wikipedia, one of her accomplishments was ‘In October 1994, Houston attended and performed at a state dinner in the White House honoring newly elected South African president Nelson Mandela. At the end of her world tour, Houston performed three concerts in South Africa to honor President Mandela, playing to over 200,000 people. This would make the singer the first major musician to visit the newly unified and apartheid free nation following Mandela’s winning election. The concert was broadcast live on HBO with funds of the concerts being donated to various charities in South Africa. The event was considered the nation’s “biggest media event since the inauguration of Nelson Mandela.” Please see her natal chart below.’

Whitney Houston, August 9, 1963, Newark NJ, 8:55 PM

Technical note: Whitney’s death was recorded as at 4 PM after 20 minutes of CPR. She was found unresponsive at 3:30 PM, having been in the bathroom for over an hour. Her death occurred sometime in that previous hour. In the chart below, I used the mid of that hour, 3 PM, for her death chart, to see the possibilities. No matter what time you use, from 2:30 to 3:30, the death chart is Cancer/Capricorn Ascendant/Descendant, with Sun in its’ 8th house. Sun 8 is commonly death at one’s own doing.

Whitney Houston's AstroLogical Birth and Death Charts

At this time of her passing, there are two exact to-the-degree major difficult aspects formed by outer Planets. Outer planet events have long-term meaning and effect. 1) Pluto, planet of Death, is squaring her natal Mars, life force, in Libra, in her Libra house. Choices could have been out of balance, an impetuous slip made, perhaps a loss of attention mattered. It was speculated she ODed after several days of intense partying. More will come to light in the following days.

2) In the second outer planet hard aspect, Chiron in Pisces is within 6 minutes, just a fraction of a degree from opposition her Uranus, and very close to her Ascendant from the 12th house of passing of the Spirit. In old mythology, Chiron is the wounded healer/teacher. Uranus is sudden change, in this case, in her health house, in the health sign Virgo. She may have been feeling a loss of friendships as well. And transiting Uranus was inconjunct her natal Uranus, the planet of friendships and community, but also supreme lonliness at times. In so many ways, Whitney was like rarified air – her race, her voice, her fame. There’s just not that many people to talk with at that level, and the ones you know, know you too well.

Dramatically, the Moon is 16 Libra, opposite Whitney’s natal Moon at 17 Aries, Jupiter 19 Aries. It was kind of like a ‘Full Moon’ of Moons. She could have felt her luck had run out, that the Self she most wanted to be was lost, unconnected. Sometimes Lunar disturbances make us lose our memory. Perhaps she didn’t think of her child or she thought her child would never love her the way she wanted to be loved by her child, or her child didn’t need her anymore and would be ok. And, there are times when chemical collisions and certain feelings are more than the rational mind can contain. We don’t think at all.

There are some very beautiful aspects.  Pluto in Capricorn, and Jupiter in Taurus, are making a Grand Earth Trine with her Uranus/Mercury/Pluto stellium in Virgo! Uranus, apparently is the key, being in both the difficult aspect, and tying to the favorable Grand Trine as well. Uranus/Mercury indicate her unique voice, exquisite singing. Pluto adds a control and perfection to the point of enchantment. Simply, she was extraordinary. These current aspects will probably make her more famous, her legacy strengthened, her estate will make money.

She was both a strong woman, regally surpassing expectations, and had the exquisite touch of a feather. May she rest lightly.
