This Happened Five Days Before My Adoptive Father Died

Saturn Return II (July 18, 2009)

Ruskin Thorpe (June 12, 1923 – July 23, 2009)

The synchronicity is overwhelming ‘proof’ of how accurate astrology is.

After writing previously about my first Saturn Return (nice rhyme), I decided to investigate when the second one occurred. I hadn’t expected this timing…

This chart is slightly randomized, for just after midnight on the day in question. The Yod pointing at Pluto seems quite right. The arms of the Yod are linked to the Moon/Mars conjunction in Gemini and the Mercury/South Node conjunction in Leo. Ha! The extra inconjunct between Saturn and the Ascendant is significant, as is the one between the Sun and the Jupiter/Neptune conjunction. That’s a lot of issues to deal with.

My memory of the time period is my being on the job as Senior Bookkeeper for Barrie Bookkeepers for less than two weeks, and the impending demise of Ruskin. As I recall, we didn’t have enough money for me to attend his funeral/memorial, so I had to decline politely when my sister Rachel asked me to come out to BC.

The job at Barrie Bookkeepers lasted until March 21, 2014, ten months before my retirement.

When compared with my birth chart, the ‘event’ Sun is opposite my natal Mercury, so the timing is significant for me. My natal Moon is inconjunct both the event Venus and its Ascendant, effectively forming a Yod, while my natal Sun/Jupiter conjunction is pointing at my joint natal and event Saturns, while the other arm from the event Ascendant forms another Yod.


When Ruskin died, the last member of our parents’ generation left the world stage. Now we were orphans.
