David Bowie, had he lived, would have spent 70 years on Earth as of today. 70 reduces to 7, a sign of mysticism and Christ Consciousness, associated with the planet Neptune. While Bowie had elements of all the collective energies in his chart, Neptune is certainly well-presented. Artistry, musicality, acting, illusion, drugs, mystery, chameleon, shape-shifter, fashion, glamour, fluid identity, all very Neptune.
Rather than rehash what I have recently written, I rather provide links to various posts that include him in some way. You can choose which posts seem appealing and then discover how Bowie fits in.
My favorite Bowie album, Hunky Dory was a response to the transition to adulthood and becoming a father. It is about growth and maturity. In our society, 70 is considered a milestone and definitely elderly. With Capricorn natives , there is this age-reversal phenomenon a la Benjamin Button ; they get younger and freer over time. I think David would have appreciated that idea and hopefully embraced it.
I just found out via google that an old lover Paul has died. He was only 55 years old and I am guessing drugs were involved. We were seeing each other when I was in my late teens and I have not heard from him in eons, but he had been on my mind lately. Watching a show today on Iggy Pop reminded me that we had seen him once in concert. That memory prompted me to google him. Iggy Pop and David Bowie were very close. Iggy said that David resurrected him. Paul loved all kinds of music and that is one thing we shared in common. I think music kinda resurrected Paul, offering healing and magic. I know it has that effect on me.
I will dedicate this song to Paul and in memory of Bowie ( born David Jones). We met in 1978 when Heroes came out. I recall that Paul liked this tune and I think he would approve.
