8-7-21 Update ~ I was inspired to think more about Prince after reading Karin’s blog on Thursday. So today I was “reminded” that I posted on Prince right after his passing. Here’s the original post with his chart added for those who are interested. ( click to enlarge) :
Notice the Scorpio/Gemini theme with a Scorpio Ascendant, Sun on 8th house cusp, Sun and Mercury in Gemini with his 3rd house ruler Saturn opposing his Gemini Sun. His chart has many links to my own, with his Ascendant exactly conjunct my Mercury ( and also conjunct my Sun) , his Sun conjunct my moon, our 4th house moon placements, and his Mercury exactly conjunct my IC.
I was preparing to buy groceries when the news came in. Prince is gone at age 57. Think tender and brash, shy and overtly sexual. Think 1999, Purple Rain, Diamonds and Pearls, The Most Beautiful Girl in the World, Raspberry Beret, Little Red Corvette, Money Don’t Matter Tonight etc. Just Tuesday afternoon while I was driving to a medical appointment, Purple Rain came on the radio. I have not heard it in quite some time. I became very emotional and was surprised by my reaction. Could I have been sent a message foreshadowing this event? Quite likely.
I learned today that he also had an emergency visit to the hospital on 4-14-16 and was also released on 4-15-16.
But I am here and he is not.
I do not have the energy to write a complete post. He had a Gemini Sun, Pisces Moon, and Scorpio Rising. His chart aligns very strongly with my Pluto Mercury signature. We both loved Purple and adored paisley. Similar to Edward Snowden’s signature as well. To learn more about the Gemini Scorpio mix, please check out this article I wrote about Joan Rivers and Johnny Carson.
Have not gotten around to my Bowie retrospective yet. These things take time for me. I do not digest easily and it is the bane of my existence. I must learn how to absorb and transmit at a faster clip.
My header will remain up in its purple glory in memory of His Purpleness.
WHERE HAVE ALL OUR ICONS GONE?
Listen here for Prince’s Super Bowl performance.
