Michael Jackson’s Death and Astrology
Death always has a way of making time stand still.
Now, another “king” is gone, and in the spirit of kings just like Elvis, Michael Jackson‘s death made the world stand still as well as almost causing a halt to the enitire World Wide Web in the process.
In that stillness is a nanosecond of Grace. For a moment we are face to face with the mystery of our existence. That feeling is very uncomfortable. So, we deal with it by going to Google.
Most astrologers, on the other hand, when faced with life’s mystery are automatically geared to search for the “meaning” of these mysterious events by running to their computers and drawing up an astrology chart.
It’s a field day for astrologers when they can have the luxury of going back in time and pasting whatever symbolism they want to explain events. Michael Jackson’s death time’s planetary events were almost textbook.
Astrologers can easily point their finger at the most obvious of aspects at this time, which is the Jupiter, Neptune, Chiron conjunction in Aquarius. We can even attribute the rest of the recent celebrity deaths to this aspect as well.
What follows is a little astrology lesson, instead of an analysis:
Michael’s ruler of his Gemini Ascendant is Mercury and there standing in almost exact opposition is the 2009 famous trio of Jupiter, Neptune and Chiron. Uranus pitches in with an almost exact inconjunct to Mercury as well. Not to mention the cliche of Chiron (The Gatekeeper’s) Return that usually happens around 50 years of age also right there opposite Mercury in the 4th House of Endings.
For you beginners, the ruler of the Ascendant is like the CEO or Manager of your Design. He’s the guy that distributes the orders to the small physically embodied Self. He also manages the functions of the physical body.
So standing directly across from this Manager Mercury are the following Members of the Cosmic Council:
On the upside: The Guardian Angel who clears a straight path to the Higher Worlds and takes a soul peacefully so they do not suffer.
On the downside: Creates grandeur and excess, pushes one beyond one’s limits, over-confidence etc. with the intent of impressing society and influencing one’s social status.
One might think MJ might have been pushing himself beyond his limits or delusional (Neptune) doctors (Jupiter).
Interesting to note how many times Jupiter is present during a Soul’s transition. I assume he stands there to open a road through the veil; like adding rocket fuel for the eventual take-off.
On the upside: “The Uplifter” who actually opens the veil between worlds, raises the soul in transcendence and inspires one to a Greater Reality. Neptune gives inspiration from higher dimensions and worlds. He straddles the veil between this dimension and others.
On the downside: Disappointment from too high expectations and ideals, lethargy, refuge into substances that mimic transcendence (like drugs), that force the physical body into temporary states of God-like qualities and help download information and inspiration from higher worlds to the detriment of the physical body. Physically, Neptune (Poseidon) rules the ocean; so waters and fluids that can surround the lungs (Mercury) and heart (Leo) can cause it to suddenly stop beating (MJ’s cardiac arrest).
Neptune aspected deaths usually have drug related associations, drowning and suffocation.
One might assume under this aspect that MJ was “supplementing his diet” with drugs to enhance his physical performance and give him inspiration and super powers.
On the upside: The Awakener who electrically jump-starts Humanity (Aquarius). The Outsider or eccentric who expresses one’s unique of (always remember the opposite sign Leo) within the mass consciousness of Aquarius.
On the downside: Sudden decisions, 180 degree switches, sudden deaths, electrical short circuits.
Uranus does create an unusual heart rhythm. Most people affected by Uranus appear to “dance to the tune of a different drummer.” Not that Uranus in itself could be implicated in MJ’s door to the other world, but its unusual heart rhythm could have been exacerbated by drugs (Neptune) and excess (Jupiter).
On the upside: The Wounded Healer who through his suffering and own healing learns to heal others of the same affliction through wisdom.
On the downside: Never getting the wisdom part of the equation and suffering from endless afflictions and venturing into hypochondriac type behaviors and utilizing endless cures.
MJ had a Chiron return in the beginning of 2009 which means Chiron made a full cycle and passed through every possible event written into one’s Design needed for one’s unique form of healing. After the return and hopefully the wisdom gained through the entire cycle, one can move on to be a Healer of Humanity instead of concentrating on healing only one’s own affliction.
With his Natal Chiron in Aquarius and Uranus the ruler of Aquarius in Leo as well as Mercury in Leo one can deduce that the message of healing was to be able to maintain one’s creative specialness without losing oneself in the mass consciousness of humanity or vice versa, not indentifying oneself with mass consciousness and using dramatic (Leo) tactics to emphasize and draw attention like a child (another Leo aspect) to one specialness.
The healing would be something akin to maintaining one’s child-like innocence, passion for life, creativity and unique qualities (Leo) to share with all of Humanity and bring people to the realization that we all share a common Consciousness and origin (Aquarius).
At the time of his death at 7:26 pm EST, the Moon just passed over the Gate of Uranus onto his Venus which rules the 12th house (the area of our chart where we pierce the veil). Sweet Venus in Leo opened the veil while Mars and Venus stood guard at his Gatekeeper’s Mars in the 12th House. Saturn in a supportive trine to Mars and last but not least Pluto in a trine to Pluto in the 4th house of endings.
MJ was escorted out of this dimension in Leo royal style for the Soul who transformed and uplifted our lives with his beautiful voice and dance.
Thank you MJ for bringing such beauty into our lives and filling our souls with music and love.
