DEATH AND PLANETS
can play a part in death and dying. All of them do. You cannot look at
just one planet, one aspect or one configuration--it is the culmination
of all of them that must be looked at in totality. And even then, if the
person decides to utilize this death energy on another plane of expression,
they'll keep on living and breathing and being around for some time to
Saturn is often
seen as Father Time--when your time's up--you're going. Father Time
is here for all of us. We are all going to die some day. However, we
move through many "mini-deaths" throughout our lives on the spiritual,
emotional and mental level, too. And Time does erode our body so that
when we're in our sixties, our body does not function as a twenty-year
old's will, too. Its your choice on how you handle Saturn's energy.
Saturn death is a lingering death. It doesn't happen quickly; it happens
over time. Sometimes, a long, suffering time. Saturn is one of the planet's
of longevity in one's life, also. The good side of Saturn, so to speak.
A conjunction, sextile or trine between this planet and your Sun can
give you a long, long life, although the whole chart must be taken into
consideration for this.
Uranus is implicated
in surgery and accidents. Usually accidents of a "weird" or unusual
nature--such as sky diving, bungee jumping, while you're skiing you
run into and hit a tree and kill yourself--or some other loopy, dumb
kind of thing that no one would ever think could happen and create an
accident. Uranus also rules airplanes and flight.
It also rules over
lightning and electricity--so many people get a jolt--either by a cord,
by a lightning bolt or zapped through some strange, odd way. Surgery
is co-ruled with Uranus along with Mars. With Uranus, you can have a
"weird" car accident, or unexpected surgery . A
Uranus death is always sudden. There is no lingering on with this planet.
Drug over doses,
recreation drug death, death by flesh eating bacteria, by a nasty virus,
or by prescription or over-the-counter drugs fall under Neptune's massive
coverage. Drowning accidents figure prominently here, as well. Water
related deaths or near deaths always find Neptune and Admetos active
at the time. Of course, there is death by drowning of having too much
fluid in your lungs; drowning by suffocation. Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary
Disease, such as asthma, bronchitis, pneumonia and emphysema are Neptune's
rulership as well. Anything having to do with water inside or outside
the body is Neptune's base of operation.
It could be a flood that kills
someone. Or a flood of liquid, such as blood in the pericardial sac
that surrounds the heart and stops the heart from beating. Deaths or
near deaths that have Neptune prominently figured will always have a
cloak of mystery about them, too. In some cases, no one will ever really
know how it happened or what the person died of or from what. People
with an active Neptune at the time of their death will usually die in
their sleep. Or, they will die of suffocation. A nice trine from one's
Sun to Neptune means a quiet, gentle passing in one's sleep.
asked for by this planet. Pluto deaths are usually pretty final and
not always pretty. They usually involve massive trauma to the body,
or there's little left to identify or its hard to identify. Deaths
with Pluto can be violent; and a good example of this is the heart attack,
where it comes out of nowhere, hits with the velocity of a Mac truck,
is massive and nothing can be done to save the person, no matter what.
The heart can literally, explode. Or, a aorta can 'blow' and the person
bleeds to death in three to five minutes. Or a massive stroke or hemorrhage
will finish them off quickly. There's something to be said for a 'swift'
death and Pluto helps make that possible. A
good sign of longevity is a conjunction, sextile or trine between one's
Pluto and Sun; although the whole chart must be taken into consideration
Mars acts as a
"trigger" for death or a near-death experience. It also rules knives,
guns and fires. You will see an active Mars in a lot of violent shootings.
Mars is about a violent death of some sort -through some kind of sport-related
accident or a car accident. Mars rules mechanical things and machinery
and often, people slice off a finger, get their arm ripped off in a
combine, or are decapitated or lose a leg in an accident.
Mars is one
of the co-rulers of surgery, so any accident involving Mars can mean
minor or major surgery, too. Since Mars rules anger, temper and the
male harmone testosterone, these additions can make or break if there
will be an accident or death--or not. Deaths
are usually violent and sudden and the person may die instantly (as
in a bullet to the head) or linger on for a couple of days, and maybe
a week--but no more than that. A Mars death is clean and swift.
This is one of the
Uranian planets and is considered the planet of disintegration.Hades
will turn those festering mass of bad feelings and experiences into
a disease--a chronic one--to get your attention so that you will handle
matters in a more straight-forward fashion. And if you don't, you will
die of a chronic disease, instead. The flip side of Hades is therapy
and shamanic healing or ceremonial healing of some sort from antiquity--which
can help save your life and get you back on track with yourself. A Hades
death is slow, arduous, a cell at a time and can take a decade or more
to slowly erode and dissolve the walls/cells/bones of our body until
there's very little left. AIDS is a good example of a Hades disease.
This is another
Uranian planet. For those who love to suppress/repress their hard feelings,
their hard knocks in life, their bitterness, their bad luck, their trauma,
, is doing an Admetos response. Admetos has an affinity for the Moon
and is often seen as the other symbol for the mother. It is also about
our subconscious. In its most lurid form, the monsters and the Shadow
within ourselves is mirrored by this planet.Very often, with a strong
Admetos natally in one's chart, this can mean that a "photograph" of
a trauma occurred very early in life--especially in utero--while being
carried by Mom--and it stains the person's entire life-force.This planet
rules strangulation of the person.
The person suffocates in some way.
It could be due to an overdose of prescription, over-the-counter or
other drugs, inhaling poisonous gas of some kind ,being poisoned by
drinking water , or inhaling poisonous air that accumulates and you
get sick and die from it.Admetos is about the hidden, poisonous things
in our everyday environment that can potentially kill us. Admetos means
death by slow, gradual onset and poisoning. An Admetos death can take
years, if not a decade. And the person suffers enormously over time,
if the source of the poisoning to them is not identified. A person slowly
being poisoned by arsenic being put in their food daily, is a good example
of this--a lot of liver pain, a lot of suffering, but its slow and unmerciful.
North and South Nodes
The Moon's Nodes
are intimately concerned with the forging of connections and the dissolving
of connections. These connections are with other people, places, associations,
groups, your company/corporation and possibly, the country you live
in. We are constantly cutting ties and making new ones. The North Node is about
creating new ties. That can be seen as dying and going to a more ethereal
place of existence.
The South Node is
about creating old connections with old, familiar places, people or
things. They will be active in a marriage, in a divorce, in a birth, in a death,
in the creation of a company, or the dissolvement of a corporation or
Chiron is the gatekeeper. He is often active when a person takes on a disease in order to move
and learn deeper, more enriching enlightenment about one's self or others.
Around age 50, many people will take on a disease. This is not to say
they are bad people.There are hidden blessings in disease and I've seen
Chiron act like a 'fast track' to spiritual evolution for a person when
this happens. A Chiron death can be quick and merciful or drag on forever; and much
depends upon aspect to it from other planets.
When someone is
in the process of dying, Venus or Jupiter would be always around. They
are both "guardian angels" of a type; although Jupiter's other side
can be heavily involved in a death. Venus promises no suffering, or
a very short period of suffering. There is grace with this planet when
it comes to dying. It says that the dying will be "easy" or painless
or less of something other than it could have been. Venus is sometimes
seen in deaths where the person dies in their sleep. Venus around is
good because the person sees his journey into death as something beautiful,
creative and an opening, not an ending or a closing or a loss.
upiter is involved
in aggressive cancers where there is cellular regeneration at optimum,
and tumors are present, or an aggressive lymphoma. Ailments involving
the liver can also come from this planet, as well. Tumors are Jupiter's
"thing." It is also, by co-rulership of the liver, tied into the lymphatic
system as well which is why, in many forms of cancer and dying of cancer,
the Jupiter is active by transit or progression.
the other hand, Jupiter is also the "guardian angel" provided it is
in good, soft aspect at the time. If it is, it means a gentle, non-struggling
death. Transit is easy and comes all at once, although the person may
linger for days, weeks, or even months. With a good Jupiter aspect around
at the time, the person does not suffer as much. They will also have
a wonderful, optimistic, open attitude about their passing into the
This Uranian planet
is very often involved in a death aspect.Having Poseidon around when
you die, is the perfect close to one door and the opening of another. Poseidon
was the God of the Ocean. Consider it a higher spiritual octave of Neptune. People
who have Poseidon active at the time they die have seen their personal
Truth. By dying, they receive illumination during the death transit.
Poseidon can be seen active in slow, gradual deaths. And it is only
when the end has finally come, that this planet makes its final station,
that the person gets some kind of incredible, soul breakthrough.
Sun can be intimately
tied into our death time.The two big "triggers" in progressed charts
is your Mars and Sun. Many times, in many deaths, the Sun is not prominent.
With the Sun involved, it usually means the person has truly fulfilled
all there soul desires this time around and it is a natural time to
move on.A Sun death can be slow or quick.
Usually, there is some beautiful
gift of awareness, a deeper soul connection made with the self before
passing--a gift is given because these people have earned such grace
by working hard, being responsible and shouldering the loads they came
in to carry and learn from or give back to humanity in the balance of
their unique karma.
