Natal Astrology and Kurt Cobain
by Jude Cowell
Born with several natal planets in water signs, Kurt Cobain was a naturally gifted, creative, and troubled soul with charisma. His accurately timed birth chart set for February 20, 1967 7:38 pm pst Aberdeen, Washington reveals the restless mid-Virgo Uranus-Pluto Conjunction somewhat past its exactitude yet unfortunately opposed by restrictive Saturn in Pisces which is part of a planetary trio with writing duo, Mercury and Venus.
This heavyweight opposition, plus Kurt's Mercury-ruled Virgo Ascendant, spotlight the victim-savior Virgo-Pisces polarity with Pisces the sign of negative escapsim such as drug use, oceanic depths, imagination, mysticism, the Unconscious, and fact-based Virgo the sign of health, work, service, the critic, and the maiden. Mutable signs suggest adaptability but also instability without other factors in the chart and psyche to provide steadiness. Often, planet Saturn provides this but in watery Pisces, not so much. A 'struggle with opponents' is one of the typical expressions of a Piscean Saturn, along with boundary issues that implicate the child-parent relationship.
Now admittedly, I've never been in the "committed suicide" camp when it comes to the mysterious demise of Kurt Cobain especially once I studied certain informative horoscopes but that's a topic beyond the scope of this brief post. Meanwhile, perhaps you, dear reader, will appreciate the video shared above, and if one day my schedule permits, we'll discuss here the untimely, tragic end of the still-missed Kurt Cobain, may he R.I.P.
