Can Astrology Predict Cause and Time of Death? – Planets, Possibilities and Passing – Part 5 of 6

Can Astrology Predict Cause and Time of Death? – Planets, Possibilities and Passing – Part 5 of 6

When it comes to death progression is where the action is. As our natal chart progresses forward with the passage of time ‘crisis windows’ will open up at some stage. This does not mean that death will reach through the open window and grab us; it merely means that that there is an increased risk of death at this time. Transits provide the trigger for something to happen. Think of a planets movements causing parts of our natal or progressed harts to light up drawing our attention to the areas of our life affected by the parts of the chart that are now illuminated.

Transiting planets can play a part in death and dying. All of the planets can be associated with death even the ones that we normally associate with fabulous, life affirming events. Furthermore you cannot look at just one planet, one aspect or one configuration – it is the sum of the effects of all of them that counts. Even when we have done that we must remember that we are still looking a probabilities rather than certainties.

Planets and Deathstyle

Venus and Jupiter

Venus is the planet of love and in cases where death is expected as in the cases of illnesses where a terminal diagnosis has been given, Venus is usually around during this time of crisis. It is thought that when one dies of an illness, the final moments of passing are uniquely peaceful and thus, Venus being a peaceful, loving planet, it would make sense that it would show up in the chart at the time of death. Some astrologers say that Venus is always present when one dies in their sleep.

Jupiter is often seen in a person’s chart as well at the time of death and usually in a more aggressive way. The planet Jupiter can be one of love and light but more often it depicts quick and unpleasant changes or turmoil. If for instance one has aggressive cancer (think of Jupiter’s association with expansion and rapid growth) and has been suffering, it could be that Jupiter is active by transit or progression around the time of death. Ailments involving the liver are also associated with Jupiter including those lifestyle related liver diseases.

Jupiter does not always indicate an unpleasant death though as Jupiter can be a “guardian angel” planet provided it is in good, soft aspect at the time. If it is, death with be gentle, peaceful with no sense of struggle or trauma a gentle, non-struggling death. With a good Jupiter aspect around at the time of death, the soon to be deceased person might even be looking forward to leaving planet earth behind and moving onto to explore the next world.

Saturn

Slow moving, brooding Saturn is associated with a long, drawn-out and lingering death. This is not to say that all Saturn related deaths involve suffering though, sometimes we just steadily deteriorate until Old father Time tells us our time is now up!

Uranus

As befits a planet associated with sudden, dramatic changes and upheaval Uranus is associated with sudden and surprising deaths. Think of unexpected accident – a skier hitting a tree, a bungee rope snapping or a speeding car suddenly mounting a curb. Think of people with everything to live for who are suddenly in the wrong at the wrong time. As Uranus rules airplanes and flight think of plane crashes or planes just disappearing, exploding in mid-air or falling out of the sky just like that. It also rules over lightning and electricity so think of death by lightning bolt or electrocution. Surgery is co-ruled with Uranus along with Mars, so a Uranus death could result from a routine or other surgical procedure going wrong. On the positive side though a Uranus death is always sudden and is usually mercifully quick.

Poseidon

Poseidon is one of the Uranian planets and is also associated with death according to astrology.  If one were to take the chart of a recently deceased person and the presence of Poseidon (who was the God of the Ocean) were to be found; it could be an indicator that this was a time when death could be predicted as Poseidon itself symbolizes a door closing and another one opening, which is how some view death to be.  This planet is also known as the planet of truth, as many who have had near death experiences have claimed that when close to death, everything about their life was clearer and that they have overwhelming feelings of being truthful or seeing the light. Everything at this point makes sense.

Poseidon can be seen to be active in slow, gradual deaths.

Hades

Another Uranian planet, Hades is regarded the planet of disintegration. Hade is associated with the development of chronic diseases that are associated with internalised stress and repressed feelings. Stress is known for having a very bad effect on those suffering from chronic disease as well as having a well-documented role in causing them. Having a chronic disease is not an automatic death sentence – there are plenty of people with chronic diseases who will lead full, pleasurable live, full of peak experiences; and die of something unrelated to the chronic disease itself.  A Hades death is like a bullet that is best dodges as it is a slow lingering one..

Admetos

This is another Uranian planet. If it’s hanging around cross your fingers, take evasive action if you think it’ll work and hope that you’ll be a coffin dodger on this occasion. This beastie is associated with those repressed feelings that slowly throttle us. Admetos is about keeping all the bile and bitterness we might feel about the way life has treated us locked inside ourselves. Think of a boil full of puss (sorry folks) and you’ll get a feeling for the toxic subconscious that is associated with Admetos. This planet  has an affinity for the Moon and is often seen as the other symbol for the mother. Why does the mother get dragged into this? Because often, if you have a strong Admetos in your natal chart, it can indicate a trauma has occurred in earlier life, often while you were still in your mother’s womb, which can blight your life.

This planet rules strangulation and suffocation, so an Admetos death is likely to involve suffocation . It could involve toxic gases, an overdose of drugs leading to suffocation, inhaling mould spores that slowly suffocate and poison or drinking something that depresses our respiratory system. Admetos is about the unsuspected, invisible, toxic things in our day to day environment that can potentially kill us. An Admetos death is a slow one that creeps up on us unaware. We are aware that we are suffering (probably for years) but we are not necessarily aware of the cause. We feel that we are being poisoned in some way, that we are slowly suffocating. We may be aware that we are dying but we don’t know what or who is killing us. If the source of the poisoning is not identified then years of suffering are likely to ensue before the end comes.  Think of that plot so beloved of crime writer of yore; think of a person being slowly poisoned to death by their seemingly devoted spouse. Imagine a poison like arsenic. Imagine someone being slowly poisoned by the arsenic that is being put into their meals every day. Think of the miser and pain that they will endure – agonising liver pain, extreme suffering, a slow and painful death unless the culprit is found in time.

Suffocation by drowning, chronic lung diseases and drug overdoses will be marked by the presence of Neptune too.

Neptune

Drug overdoses, drowning whether it’s in our own bodily fluids or external liquids are all associated with Neptune. Where there are water related deaths, including drowning Neptune and Admetos will be active at the time, like a pair of toxic twins.

Unfortunately there is more than one way to drown, for a start we can drown from the accumulation of fluid on our lungs so chronic lung diseases plus respiratory diseases such as pneumonia fall within Neptune’s remit as does death by water intoxication. In short anything to do with water inside or outside the body is within Neptune’s sphere of operation. Death by suffocation often involves Neptune also.

There is usually an air of mystery about a Neptune related death, which befits a planet that is associated with mystery and illusion. In some cases, no one will ever really know what the person really died from. Might there be an element of foul play involved? Neptune is after all associated with deception.

As befits a planet that is often associated with dreamers, people with an active Neptune at the time of their death will often die peacefully in their sleep if there is an easy pleasant trine aspect between their Sun and Neptune,

Pluto

As befits a planet associated with transformation, destruction and upheaval there’s no messing when it comes to a Pluto death nor is there any ambiguity. Pluto deaths are pretty brutal and they certainly ain’t pretty. In fact they can be rather messy just like a Mars death, but we’ll turn our attention to Mars later. Pluto deaths usually involve hard-core trauma to the body and/or or there’s not a lot of body left to identify.

As the above paragraph suggests deaths where Pluto is active can be violent. This does not necessarily mean person on person violence it can mean a massive heart attack or stroke where nothing can be done to save the person – it all happens too, too fast for intervention to be an option.

Sun.

There are many deaths where the Sun is not really an obvious factor. The Sun is often unusually absent progressed charts when death is near which would make sense as Sun is what keeps all things alive and well on Earth. When the Sun is involved it is often assumed that the dying person has done what they came here to do and is now ready to move on. In this case when death is near it is believed that the Sun brings with it knowledge and only after we have learned all we are supposed to, can be depart this world and move on to the next.  There are large contradictions when it comes to the Sun and its powerful or lack of presence in the regards to death.

Mars

Mars often acts as a “trigger” for death or a near-death experience. As befits a planet associated with war, violence and aggression not to mention testosterone fuelled rages, a Mars death is usually sudden, swift and violent. It often involves accidents or conflict though not necessarily. Examples of Mars related deaths would be knifings, shootings, death on the battlefield, car accidents (especially if the car turns into a fireball), death by fire, fatal accidents with machinery or sports accidents.

Mars is one of the co-rulers of surgery, so any incident involving Mars can mean surgery either to repair the damage or death as a result of bleeding out on the operating table/post-surgery. Mars deaths are usually high octane, high adrenaline and don’t often leave a pretty corpse. Just imagine what Death would be like if he was an Aries and you’ll get a good idea of what a Mars death is like!

I shall be dealing with the Moon, comets and nodes in my next post

Can Astrology Predict Cause and Time of Death? – Keep On Passing The Open Windows – Part 4 of 6

Can Astrology Predict Cause and Time of Death? – Keep On Passing The Open Windows – Part 4 of 6

Those who practice medical astrology are very familiar with the concept of windows (some call them “crisis windows”) and often talk about these in terms of “windows of opportunities.” When a client consults an astrologer and has their windows pointed out to them, most astrologers will position these points in the chart as true opportunities or points where a crisis is likely to happen. They can be one and the same thing as a crisis will often create opportunities, though we may not feel that way at the time! For the astrological perspective, it is during these points in our life that the energies surrounding us manifest at their highest level or come to what is known as an “apex” point.

During these window periods many things, not just death, are more probable. But this could mean a divorce, a career change, a birth or any other event that may cause a strong emotional response which can be either a positive or a negative one. Windows are not solely indicators of death, but rather indicators of change whether welcomed or not. In a sense they are indicators of psychological transformation when we become reborn – some astrologers refer to this type of event as a “psychological death” rather than a physical.

Because those who practice astrology also tend to believe that death is not the end, but a mere transition into something far greater, most do not believe that these windows predict death, as death is not seen as an ending but rather the start of something new. Therefore labeling them as a dark or ominous presence entirely contradicts what most astrologers believe.  For them, death is a freeing time where the body is released, free to go to the next journey or adventure and thus windows are not regarded as a negative thing.

When windows are apparent within our chart, astrologers will likely speak about these being times of change or perhaps “crisis” where any given situation is coming to a head or to fruition and where decisions need to be made. Crisis often will bring about initial unwelcomed change, but that change isn’t necessarily in the form of death as we know it. It could be the “death” of a relationship, career, friendship or a loss in another form. This is not to say categorically that it won’t be the end of life as we know it, but there is no definitive way to predict such an occurrence based on a natal chart’s windows.

What is interesting about speaking with reference to death and astrology is that even among those astrologers who are 100% certain that death cannot be predicted and who believe that too many aspects at once need to be aligned before one can state unequivocally that death will occur, there are believed to be some pointers that indicate that death is more likely than at other times. Most astrologers agree on some aspects that they would expect to be present in a chart at the time of death.  These are summed up brilliantly in this post by Alice Portman PMFAA:  Determining Death from a Horoscope

This post mostly covers timing of death. The next blog post on this topic will cover indicators of cause of death.

New Year, New You. Aries Birthday Resolutions

New Year, New You. Aries Birthday Resolutions.

Astrologically the best time to make your New Year’s Resolutions isn’t New Year’s Day as many of us understand it. It is our own New Year’s Day; the day when the Sun returns to the place that it was at the time of our birth otherwise known as our birthday. This is a time when many of us do review what we have done to date and make a commitment to ourselves that (if things are not as we wish them to be) this year will be different. On our birthday we often decide how we want things be in the coming year and if we choose to make a resolution to accomplish something we are more likely to succeed than if we make a resolution at a time that has less personal significance for us.

Now when it comes to making birthday resolutions we are more likely to be successful if we pick resolutions that fit in with who really are as opposed to going for one that we think we ‘should’ make.

Why not resolve to become more like to like your Sun sign? Why not pick a few of those wonderful Sun sign strengths and character traits that you have waiting for you to develop, and develop some of them further? Why not play to your strengths and make some resolutions and goals that you will make you feel fulfilled when you hit them? How do I know that you will feel fulfilled when you become more like your Sun sign? Take a look at the blog manifesto for the answer to that one!

Developing your Sun sign strengths will make for more lasting results than trying to stick to a New Year’s resolution that is at odds with you really are. Let’s face it Aries is going to find sticking to a resolution to be less impatient much harder than resolving to be more assertive or to set up their own business. That’s not to say that developing your Sun sign strengths is always going to be easy, sometimes it will be rather challenging, but the results will be both satisfying and long lasting.

So with this in mind I am making a few Birthday Resolution suggestions based on your Sun sign. There is one Bithday Resolution suggestion that applies to all the Sun signs and that’s to love your Sun sign. Be proud to be a member of Team Aries, Team Taurus, Team Gemini, Team Cancer, Team Leo, Team Virgo, Team Libra, Team Scorpio, Team Sagittarius, Team Capricorn, Team Aquarius or Team Pisces. Have a look at some of the forums that are devoted to one specific Sun sign in order to connect with people who are the same Sun sign as you. Find out what makes them (and you) fabulous!

Rather than suggest you make Birthday Resolutions to deal with your Sun sign’s negative traits I’m going to suggest that you make New Year’s Resolutions that will bring out your Sun sign’s positive traits. The more you express those the less likely you are to express those nuisance negative traits that hold you back.

So what talents and traits might Aries resolve to make the most of?

New Year, New You. Aries Birthday Resolutions.

Believe it or not there are some diffident Aries out there so a great Birthday Resolution for those folk would be to develop some assertiveness skills. They are they waiting for you unleash them! A surprising number of Aries people are less confident than they appear to the rest of us, so making a Birthday Resolution to develop plenty of confidence would also be a wise move. Make a promise to yourself to unleash that pioneering spirit too – find a new activity to pursue or place to explore.

Aries can get into trouble because they often rush into situations or take action before thinking things through, so taking up a martial art would be a great use of time for a Mars ruled sign. You’ll learn how to control and direct that explosive energy of yours. You’ll also learn to think ahead and how to act in a cool, detached manner rather than shooting from the hip. Learning how to suss out and read your opponent will help you to take the focus of your attention away from you and place it where it should be – your opponent! Learning how to read and understand theirs will also help you to become less self-centred.

As Aries is physically active resolving to take up a new sport would also make sense as would learning something new. You’ll probably enjoy taking the new information that you’ve learned and doing something totally different with it.

To help you make Birthday Resolutions that you can keep read AstroCoaching for Aries – Unleash Your Star Sign’s True Potential and/or my forthcoming book Sun Sign Relationships … An AstroCoach’s Guide To How Each Sun Sign Dates, Relates And Communicates.

Can Astrology Predict Cause and Time of Death? – The Greek’s Theories on Astrology and Death – Part 3 of 6

Can Astrology Predict Cause and Time of Death? – The Greek’s Theories on Astrology and Death – Part 3 of 6

The word “horoscope” originated from Greek culture and that culture strongly believes that by studying one’s horoscope and all the planetary movements that life is one series of events that can be both predicted and altered at any point in time. In fact there is a book referred to as the “Tetrabiblos” by Ptolemy that speaks at length about the theory of the length of one’s life and will according to some actually teach a person how to read their chart and predict the end of life.

According to this group, while examining one’s natal chart, there are clear indicators of not only troubled times, but that the chart will inherently show absolute times within the chart where dangers are lurking. It is this train of thought that teaches believers to heed to these warnings in relation to death.

Much of the Greek culture and how they relate to death also coincides with today’s modern day astrologers and their beliefs that our astrological charts have what is referred to as “windows.” These windows are within our natal charts and though some astrologers (including ones who like to manipulate and scare people) may tell clients who want to know when they are going to die, that they have one window and that when and where that window exists on their chart will be the time of death, most astrologers will disagree with this. Most astrologers think in terms of likelihood and probability rather than believing that everything is predestined and that we have no say in how our lives (and ourselves) turn out!

According to the astrological community at large, these windows do exist but there isn’t just one window to be found in every natal chart. Instead, most charts contain anywhere from four to eight different “windows.” As our life progresses there will be points at which these windows open; and it is theorized that death is more likely to happen during these window points than at any other time in one’s life.

Can Astrology Predict Cause and Time of Death? – A Glimpse Into Where Death Might be Lying In Wait – Part 2 of 6

Can Astrology Predict Cause and Time of Death? – Natal Charts, Progressed Charts And A Glimpse Into Where Death Might be Lying In Wait – Part 2 of 6

Astrologers will tell their clients that having a natal chart and a progressed chart done can give an individual a glimpse into what their future holds. A natal chart is both a map of the heavens at the time we were born and a map of our potential including our psychology, potential, spirituality and life mission. Your natal chart expresses your talents, potential successes, abilities and the challenges you will face. It is unique to you, from an astrological perspective it is unlikely that there is anyone else out there who exactly the same as you. You are a one off; you are unique. Everything that is happening to you now, everything that has happened and everything that will happen is down to this original chart.

By studying the sun, moon (known as luminaries) and planet’s positions during the time one is born and taking into account other celestial components, astrologers are given reference points of highs and lows that a person will encounter throughout their life. By looking at the position of the luminaries etc. at a point further ahead in time and looking at their relationships to the planets and points in our individual natal charts we begin to get a handle on what the future might hold. These are known as transits and challenge / force us to make changes in our lives and in our attitude towards our situation

Another technique used in astrology is that of progression.  One of the most common systems used is that of secondary progression where astrologers move the natal chart forward by one day per year of life. Secondary progressions offer insight into how we evolve as people.  Secondary progressions will flag up significant events in our lives.

According to most, if not all, astrologers having their natal chart done can tell individuals such things as what their weaknesses and strengths are and even some life changing events such as whether one will marry and have children, go through a divorce or whether they will purchase a home.

Others believe that if read correctly, that these charts can also warn folks about downward spirals at different intervals of their lives and predict on which dates or years one should take care or advice and what people to avoid. Those who study astrology often have advised their clients to watch their charts carefully so that they can be aware of what career paths to take, when opportunities for romance and career advancement might present themselves, when peak lucky periods are likely to occur and so on.  Of course having this information would be valuable to anyone and they could then center their lives on people and career choices that would be beneficial while avoiding others. It is also valuable to what your strengths and weaknesses are, how you are likely to interact with others and what skills are waiting for you to develop. How valuable would it be for example to know whether you are blessed with talents that will be highly marketable in the future?

Can astrology really predict the future? Unfortunately, there is no unequivocal scientific evidence that can conclusively back up these theories to any degree nor can they be dismissed completely. On one hand astrologers and researchers have interviewed hundreds and thousands of people who swear that their lives have followed the path predicted by astrology, while skeptics claim that having these charts simply (and perhaps on an unconscious level) allows or enables people to alter their fates simply because they are aware of what their charts say. Therefore, it is thought that if someone believes in their chart strongly enough, whether consciously or unconsciously, they will make decisions that will increase the chances of their life going in the direction the chart predicted it would. Again, much of this is speculation, though studies show that the power of suggestion is rather strong.

Can Astrology Predict Cause and Time of Death? – Part 1 of 6

Can Astrology Predict Cause and Time of Death? – Part 1 of 6

Astrology has long had a place in various cultures across the globe. Many of those who are professional astrologers use their skills to help people predict future events or rather the likelihood of them occurring. As humans, many of us are fascinated by the notion that we can know and possibly change our future and thus our fate.

Since astrology first began, millions have relied upon it as a way to see into our futures and get a “heads up” of what’s to come. It has other uses too, some of which will be covered in later posts, but the branch of astrology that most people associate astrologers with is known as predictive astrology. In addition to questions relating to relationships one question that astrologers often get asked is, “If astrology can predict the future, then can it predict the time and cause of death?”

To date there is no evidence that conclusively points to or proves that astrology can 100% accurately predict when we will die and what the cause will be. Death is notoriously difficult to predict (ask any medic!).  However there are many schools of thought when it comes to astrology and predicting death, and while the evidence isn’t conclusive, some truly feel that within our charts, the natal charts which, when progressed, show us key events in our lives from birth to death, can essentially give at a minimum, a glimmer of information about when we can expect to die. This though begs the question; would we actually want to know this information?

Researchers have looked into the theory of how humans would react and respond if they knew the exact date and time of when they would die.  Hands down their studies have shown that most don’t want to know and further studies show that if we were to have that information, it would be not bring us any peace. Why? Because most if not all of us would live each day in fear and naturally as that that “D” day comes closer, our anxieties would drastically increase. We may even try to come up with inventive ways to cheat death. There are plenty of stories out there that explore this very topic but death has a habit of winning in the end!  But having said that knowing the date of our death would be disturbing for many of us, some people truly feel that knowing how long they have to left to live would somehow be beneficial and thus, let’s explore what astrology really can predict as far as death…
