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.

Sendai, Japan Quake – Tsunami March 11, 2011

Today, March 11, Uranus (quakes) gave it a last kick at the 29th, last degree and last day of Pisces (ocean), before going into Aries, by shaking us with the Sendai, Japan Quake!  9.0 made it the largest earthquake to hit Japan and the fifth largest in the world since records began in 1900.  Google Person Finder for Sendai Quake, click here

Uranus is the planet of quakes, electricity.  It and Neptune, planet of the ocean, tsunamis, have been traveling closely together in late degrees since April 2009.  Neptune just entered its last degree, the 29th degree, March 5.  The 29th degree classically is thought of as at the end of your rope, sometimes the last chance, endings, fatalities, completions, maturity, a done deal, little can be done about what was, and you are on the brink of imminent irrevocable change. 

This quake chart, just off coast of Sendai, Japan, has Uranus and Neptune both at 29 degrees, in each other’s signs!   Neptune is in the 7th house of relationships;  Uranus is in the 8th house, the house of death and transformation.  Aquarius is the 7th house cusp sign, and the sign Uranus rules.  Aquarius has to do with awakening, sometimes shocks, always change, making friends with people often very unlike us.  It also has to do with worldwide networking, the internet.  Early warnings were rapidly sent to the Pacific rim coastal areas. 

Uranus is still T square, the Moon’s Nodes!  This is significant because the Moon is Queen of the tides!  Ocillations, waves, undulations, are both Lunar and Uranian!  Uranus is the planet of Aquarius.  Think of the Aquarian symbol.  Electrical, sound, light, waves.  T squares are challenges, breakages in patterns, impediments, pressures.  The nodes are now at 28 degrees.  Uranus at 29, just nudged them over the line.

Charts of major events are always a conglomerate of aspects that have reached a threshold.  Some of the aspects are background, have stirred the pot before the event occurs.  Long term, slower aspects show potential.  Others, often fast moving aspects, are triggers and the event at core, very close to exact.  Then there are the aspects still building, indicating the aftermath, how the matter is handled. 

Recently we have had Jupiter square Pluto, Feb 25, and we are building to giant Jupiter’s Mar 17 perihelion (closest to Sun in 12 years and moving twice as fast as usual!) AND Mar 28, Jupiter opposite Rock of Gibraltar, hold-on-forever, concentrated, containing, Saturn!  In this chart they are in a wide T square, the Jupiter Pluto combo still smoldering, Jupiter already encountering the Saturn wall, making pressure.  This is all kinds of push/pull!  Jupiter simply has mass, can be a righteous bully, wants to move and does.  Pluto has power, and plenty of it, often unseen, a force to be reckoned with.  Saturn is stone cold, not giving in, will outwait you.  I’m dramatizing here to give you a sense of the symbolic stresses in play.   Jupiter at its time closest the sun, as it does once every 12 years, is more empowered than usual!

Just 2 days ago, March 9 Mars just had its 2 year perihelion!  It is at 12 degrees Pisces, midpoint (equidistantly between) Venus 10 Aquarius and Jupiter 10 Aries!  Mars rules Aries, so adds to Jupiter’s already amped energy!  Venus in Aquarius, sextile Jupiter, considered a protective aspect, perhaps mitigated circumstances, less were killed.  Some quakes and tsunamis have taken many more people.

The Moon, 0 degrees Gemini, square Chiron, 2 degrees Pisces, was the closest difficult aspect in time, with Moon sextile Mercury also at 2 degrees, in Aries.  The Moon can apply to the masses, the people, homes and businesses.  Chiron can be a wound, often rather fateful, unavoidable, even unfixable.  Pisces is the ocean, so a tidal sweeping, some never to return or be found, unknowns.   

Our hearts go to those who have lost so much, many not even having a place to sleep, no possessions left.  Economic recovery is one thing, loss of loved ones goes deeper.  Wounds can be life changing, and the Chironic symbolism is played out to entirety.  Wounded, healer, teacher.

Time to take up the fight in a good way.

Uranus will be the second outer planet, Jupiter was first, now in Aries, ready to rocket!  Uranus will be the spice of the 56 day Aries Stellium (4 to 6 planets) March 21 to May 15!  Cautions for Libra, Cancer, Capricorns born early in their signs.  Full steam ahead for Aries, Leos and Sagittarians!

The last time it started March 31, 1927 until Mar 28, 1935.  That era started with the completion of Charles Lindbergh’s solo transatlantic flight May 21, 1927! Uranus rules flight! Lindbergh was a Feb 2, 1902 Aquarian, a lifelong aviation advocate. He also had Mars (the planet of Aries), common to be first and solo, in Aquarius, the sign of flight! The Lindy Hop, a jitterbug dance of great vitality, neatly fit the exact time period, 1927 to 1935! The combo of electric Uranus and max action Aries could be considered a bit frenetic, high energy to say the least, faster than greased lightning! Genius mechanics! Vehicles will change completely in the next 7, 8 years! There will be record setting bicycle enthusiasts, electric bikes will take their niche! Instead of ride your bike, it will be fly your bike!

Uranus has to do with masses of people all over the world, networking. Aries is the individual, Uranus is the exotic version! Surprising people could come into the Light as leaders of this new time. Uranus is awakening, change, evolution, revolution, the internet! I think we will see a whole nother generation of computer integration for citizens across the globe. Uranus rules space. It would be no surprise to see private citizens finally making that first trip into the ethers! The word friends will take on new meaning.

In combination with Pluto in Capricorn, old organizations, governments, will be brought to their knees, some by lack of funds and reorg, others by downright fall from power. Change will sweep through their systems, initial errors made, until things settle. Pluto in Cap will try to keep the status quo, but the upcoming seven time square from Uranus in Aries (this fall to March 2015), rights and freedom of the Individual will prevail because old Pluto is slow, slower spirited still in Capricorn, and the internet is now bigger than any single government. In this case, resistance only makes the fight more hot. People in 3rd world countries are now hand cranking computers to see what’s what! Whether it is political power outages or electrical, be prepared for system disruptions, personal to planetary.

Power up, folks! Goggles on, get on board, and hang on tight! It’s gonna be the ride of a lifetime!  It’s 8 years’ worth, until March 2019!

Ok, so what’s a Bow?

A BOW is a Planetary Aspect Pattern!

Saturday after ThanksGiving, at, notice that nifty time, 4:44:44 PM Pacific, there’s a BOW configuration AstroLogically, not an uncommon pattern, but this one is feminine, including Mama Moon and Venus in one of her own signs, Libra!  The planets are lined up pretty sweetly!

To see the BOW, follow the green lines, sextiles, then notice how the longest ‘vertical’ red lines, oppositions, connect their end points, just like a ‘bow!’

  • The red lines span between the Moon in Leo, and Neptune/Chiron in Aquarius, the Part of Fortune right there with them! Self aware, expressive, cares about its friends, their dreams, healing, teaching, and it is good fortune to do so!
  • Venus is at 29 Libra, the very last degree of Libra, critical concern about love, beauty, partnering. It feels that things must get done, that there be change, to set things right.
  • Mars and Mercury complete the bow in Sagittarius, confident, generous, looking to the future, wanting to take action on what is spoken.

Looks like Saturday fun to me if it ties in well with your chart! Spend time with a new friend, talk with someone you love.  Have an afternoon open house, a party! No matter that it’s after ThanksGiving, do your own thing! Invite me!

July 20 Fifth and last Saturn inconjunct Chiron, at 29 Aquarius     

Chiron

The day before Saturn enters Libra, it inconjuncts Chiron the last time of five times.  The set started Oct 8, 2008.  The last time was Apr 12, 2010.  All of them have been in Virgo/Aquarius as Saturn has traversed Virgo, a careful and caring time.  Many have been called on to give more than they ever expected or thought they could give.  Many have had to face the worst fears, job and health losses.  Some have lost friends, moved beyond old connections.  Out of it has come a more free, perhaps plenty sober, outlook, adjustments to new ways, even accomplishments, and for many, new friends.  A lot of healing would never have happened had it not been for what seemed like losses at the time.  Stand tall, you made it!      

See also  April 12, 2010 for more info, the 4th of the five inconjuncts….        

July 21 Saturn into Libra until Oct 5 2012     

The Saturn inconjunct Chiron has cleared a lot of debris, healed some long standing matters, making way for cleaner relationships with more truth, clearer mutual purpose, partnerships to be able to discuss their needs as they go.  There are less half truths, accommodating to keep the peace.  There is more loving expression of boundaries, time made and taken to honor each other’s needs.  Lifework now is more suited to our Spirits!  Saturn will be in Libra until Oct 5, 2012.  We have time to learn how to make, improve, restore, and give balance, fairly.  We will get better at crossing divides, sharing culturally, honoring people of all ages. Blessed be.
