It was all over the Internet, so it had to be true: Playboy Hugh Hefner had died! Except that he hadn’t. This was just the latest of such rumors, not only for Hefner, but for many others. Someone loves to see the ‘fake’ news that our President keeps talking about.
Upon hearing of his passing I immediately started casting some charts. Natal charts for Chicago where he was born, for New York city where he published his first Playboy magazine featuring a nude Marilyn Monroe, then Los Angeles where he was most often found hanging out. I will post a chart, an advanced chart for July 15th, 2017, his falsely reported death date. What is interesting that it has some appropriate and serious patterns that could relate to his passing. Let’s look at this ‘much-ado-about-nothing’ chart.
Interesting is n/Asc. at the MC and n/MC at the Desc. First, n/Asc. at the MC is often seen as speaking on behalf of an institution, corporation or for another person. Promotion. This would seem to relate to the originator of the rumor. Second, n/MC at the Desc. suggests placing your reputation or image in the hands of another. Finding an agent to represent you Again, this seems to relate to the originator of the rumor.
Then, there is the classic ‘death indicator’ for cyclic charts such as Solar Returns, Lunar Returns, Moon-to-Sun Returns and any of their derived advanced daily charts. This would be n/Venus-at-the-IC-angle. Venus is often associated with death when found at this angle — although it is also associated with the start of a love affair as well. Venus represents balance and harmony. This is a pleasing result for the living who fall in love, and is true for those who pass on into a better place for them.
We could consider other supportive patterns if we wished. How about t/PoF-opp-n/Mars in the 3rd; hurting words cause upset. Or t/Sun-conj-n/PoF; one’s self interests are subject to being upset. N/Saturn-Asc.-opp-n/MC; difficulty in acting on one’s own behalf due to others speaking for you.
So, it is fortunate that I hadn’t spent more time on these charts, nor had I rushed to post a new blog. It wouldn’t be the first time I’ve embarrassed myself, but I do like to avoid such events as much as possible. So, who else among my followers have put themselves into a embarrassing situation? We can do chart and a write up but keep your name out of it if you would like to share. Dave.
