Purple Forever


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.





Listen here for Prince’s Super Bowl performance.

  1. Reblogged this on litebeing chronicles and commented:
    Here is my tribute to Prince, republished on the 1 year anniversary of his passing. As I write this, I witness another otter ( muskrat, groundhog, ??) sighting. He or she was too fast for me to capture photographically. Still cool to receive some awesome creature magick.

    I want to use this opportunity to briefly editorialize about the evolution of my blogging, which is very apropos for a Mercury retro cycle. Initially I thought I would write a few posts about my spiritual journey, as an English student would for a teacher. My grades would be in the form of readers and comments. At least that is how it appears looking back. 2013 was an exciting and mysterious time for me and many others. My writing flourished here, and I grew as a result, both creative and personally. As my health began to deteriorate and my finances followed suit, my writing grew both darker and more intimate. I let you in and shared more of my deepest fears and complicated musings. The polished writer facade became more flawed and exposed.
    Please be open to every aspect of my writing and try not to draw any sweeping conclusions. Existence is about context and my blog reflects that context over the dimensions of space and time. Creative types are often both tortured and brilliant simultaneously. Please enjoy my Prince post while you contemplate that paradox.

    much love, Linda litebeing

    1. Hi Sue,

      So glad you liked my impromptu tribute. I wonder why so many have left this year. Do they know something we don’t or it simply their time. We need great artists to remain here and new ones to emerge. Music is so healing!

      Thanks for the love too ❤

      1. So many talented people have left whose work affect so many of us.. Here we had a wonderful lady called Victoria Wood, who Sang, Acted and wrote comedy.. She was my age.. May be we are needed to feel compassion through their loss.. As many are now hardening to Wars and are not reacting to the crisis many face. I don’t really know. excpet to say it is our loss and the higher realms gain.

        I couldn’t let my heavy metal friends see it. I also had a NuShoos Album, Missing Persons, Tears For Fears, and Big Country hidden in there too.

  3. Hi Mary,
    Thanks for commenting and sharing your condolences. Were you a fan? I do think I was being given information ahead of time. This has begun to accelerate over the past few months. Not that it brings any comfort.

    Thanks also for the well wishes. I still need healing.

    peace, Linda

    Yeah, I heard it on the radio on my way home today. They played Purple Rain after they told us. I had also heard it recently, like a couple of weeks ago. I bet your reaction was a foreshadowing. The emotion was there, like you were being told something. I just remember really enjoying the song. Love your purple banner and paisley.
    Yes, RIP Prince.
    Peace and Wellness to you, Linda
