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.
