A very quick look to David Bowie’s chart in the day of his death. The chart is cast for 9:00 am, the birth time given by parents and the former wife (1), but we like a lot because of Venus culminating at MC.
En passant, another legend of rock, Motorhead’s singer and bassist Lemmy Kilmister, who passed away the past December, had an angular Venus too, because Venus is a natural significator for art in general, whatever transaturnian you can imagine 🙂
In David Bowie’s chart is the significator of activity (2) because it is the only visible planet (Mercury and Mars are invisible) among the ones concerning activity and profession, it is separating from the Moon and it is smashed on the MC.
It could be the Lady of the Geniture (aka the Miles according Cielo&Terra teachings) because Saturn which is angular too is debility being in its detriment in Leo.
Without forgetting anyway that in this chart Saturn is in sect/hairesis and it could not be too much blocking and restricting…..
In every case Venus is perfect for the glamorous, refined and dandy
representation Bowie channeled in pop music.
The Lights – the Sun (in cazimi with Mars in its own exaltation) and the Moon are with fixed stars and nebulae damaging eye-sight. The Moon with M44 Praesepe and the Sun with M7 Scorpio’s sting: in 1962 during a quarrel he was injured to the left eye and the damage was permanent.
A “passionate star” – omicron Capricorni on Capricorn’s mouth -rises at the Ascendant, of Saturn and Venus nature, which is a very explosive combination because Saturn all destroys, and especially destroys Venus.
Bowie died with the mundane opposition of Saturn to Venus, which is the Lady of the Geniture, which was perfected around the end of December.
The profection (a sign per year) was arrived to Scorpio, the return falls in Scorpio too with Mars (ruler of the profection/return on the Profected Ascendant. Moon was around 0° Aquarius in the 12th house radix, 4th (the end of life/all) in the return/profection.
We’re nothing, and nothing will help us
Maybe we’re lying, then you better not stay
But we could be safer, just for one day
