With the news of both Farah Fawcett and Michael Jackson’s deaths on the heels of Ed McMahon, I thought of the old wives tale that celebrities seemed to die in threes. Which appears to have some bizarre truth to it. I also knew from memory Farah was an Aquarian and that Michael Jackson (although his sun was in Virgo) had his moon in Aquarius.
Right now Jupiter the planet of expansion, excess and general bigness (usually a beneficent planet) is retrograde (going backwards and many would say in this position its beneficial elements are greatly lessened) is exactly conjunct Neptune the planet of loss, death, psychic phenomena and spirituality, also music, the arts, photography, the sea, etc. Together they were opposed by one of the lights (as we call them in astrology ie., the sun and the moon) the moon in Leo with a lot of loose squares coming from all directions to this configuration. It’s not a surprise that three iconographic celebrities would cross over during this period. McMahon’s death happened when the moon was in Cancer most likely conjunct his natal Pluto and interestingly both Fawcett and Jackson were in the Pluto in Leo generation. Pluto ruling death and transformation, sexuality and the underworld. This trigger of the moon potentially conjuncting their natal Plutos along with the Neptune/Jupiter retrograde conjunction sitting near Fawcett’s Sun (vitality, life force, soul) and Jackson’s Moon (persona, emotions, past life, childhood, personality) would be enough to push them in their already frail states to the other side. Ed McMahon with the recent stress of a foreclosure looming over him at his age combined with the planets were too much to fight at his age. (I have yet to look up his chart but I will.)
17 and 1/2 months ago when my daughter was born Neptune in Aquarius was sitting directly on my sun. I knew early on in my pregnancy I would have serious trouble, had a dream of having preeclampsia which happened, and knew that my yet to be proporly diagnosed neurological condition would reek havoc on me. I was vigiliant about talking to a neurologist and squaring away what to do in case I had to have an emergency c-section (my back is fused from a childhood injury). I was the one who caught the preeclampsia by buying a home blood pressure ki,t but to make a long story short, I would not have survived giving birth to my daughter if I had not been psychic and been warned in dreams and through premonitions about what was going to happen. Luckily, I was able to use the Neptune on my sun for greater psychic clarity telling the nurses before I began to seizure that it was going to happen. But truth be told I’m very sure my dauughter and I would have died had I not been psychically attuned to the situation. And according to my OBGYN she had never come so close or been so scared of losing a patient. She insisted I never have another child as my risk of death was just far too high. I say this only to illustrate the intensity of Neptune conjunct a light in a person’s chart (the sun or moon).
An astrologer friend who looked at my chart that day was in tears when I didn’t answer my room phone. Her husband told me later she was sure I had died based on my chart. So although I haven’t done the charts for Farah and Michael Jackson knowing this intense conjunction was close to them was probably the reason they were no longer able to stay a part of our world.
No matter what the autopsy on Michael Jackson finds (and I’m sure it will show that he was malnurited due to anorexia and died of a heart attack from over-exerting himself with his upcoming new tour) it was his time to pass over as it was Farah’s. Even if Michael had been taking too many prescription drugs I’ve had the feeling for the past five years or so he was near the end of his life. He would have died irregardless of the medications. And of course Farah fought hard but cancer is an unseen enemy that truthfully can only be endured with grace which she did.
May their souls go peacefully into the light.
Blessings to all,
