Whitney Houston: Chaos in a Shining Star

Whitney Houston: Chaos in a Shining Star
Born August 9, 1963 at 8:55pm in Newark Heights, New Jersey, Whitney Houston died just before 4pm in Los Angeles on February 11, 2012.

Paradoxically, what gave Whitney such a heavenly voice and talent was also what arguably drew her to the life of drugs and despair that proved to be her undoing. The key planet in her chart was an emphasized Neptune-in-Scorpio in the Eighth House, which was on the point of a T-square to a Leo-Sun-Venus opposition Saturn in the Twelfth House.

Neptune in the Eighth House gives off an aura of cosmic glamor, which is why it often appears in the charts of film stars. Neptune rules the movies and music. It reaches for a transcendent perfection that can never be attained in real life. Individuals with such a strong Neptune carry within themselves a deep loneliness and longing for a connection to a divine soul or a soul mate. They long to escape from the ordinariness of human life which is why drugs and drink are so addictive.

A Leo, Whitney's Saturn-opposition-Sun-Venus would also make her feel unworthy and unlovable as if she was never quite matching up to expectation. Despite her soaring talent, she never felt good enough.

She also carried the tumultuous Uranus-Pluto conjunction in Virgo on her descendant, so she was attracted to wayward, unpredictable partners, as was the case with Bobby Brown.

Their relationship was overloaded with emotion, highly Neptunian, riddled with doubt and suspicion and always guaranteed to implode at some point. There was a composite Sun-Neptune conjunction trine Saturn with the unstable Uranus Pluto driving the full power of an overloaded composite Water-Grand-Trine.

He was blamed for dragging her down the drug route, but her marriage to him coincided with a low point in her life, so she’d have been troubled with or without him. At the time of her marriage, the transiting Saturn that had brought her huge success moving through her upper quadrant from 1987 until 1994 was then dipping down into her low profile, psychologically troubled first quadrant. Transitting Uranus was also moving through her Twelfth House, which produces an emotionally difficult few years. It emerged into freedom in her First House in 2006 when she got divorced. And her solar-arc Mars had been moving its way around that Neptunian fixed T-square in her chart, which was very undermining and debilitating. Again solar-arc Mars cleared the end of those aspects when she divorced in 2006.

Sadly, although her career revived somewhat after her divorce, she could never quite make it onto solid ground. Transiting Pluto was exactly square her Mars when she died, which causes acute frustration. Her solar-arc Saturn was also moving to oppose her Mars, which also produces great despair.
 
Neptune moving into Pisces just a few days ago adds her sadly to the remarkable collection of starry women who died on this transition of the planet that drove their lives. Liz Taylor and Jane Russell died last year as Neptune made its first foray into Pisces. On previous shifts of Neptune out of one sign into another, Vivien Leigh, Judy Garland, Nathalie Wood, Grace Kelly, Gloria Swanson, Princess Diana, Ginger Rogers and many other notable with a global aura died.
