Can Madness Link Two Lives?

Elizabeth Thorpe (May 17, 1963)

Watching the Stanley Cup playoffs in 1979

This is awkward, to say the least: my sister, Elizabeth is schizophrenic. She has been this way since her late teens, blaming our mother for hypnotizing her and thereby allowing the Devil to enter her mind.

Ordinarily, I would be quite reluctant to share this information publicly, but today’s post about Sylvia Plath has set my thinking on this mental pathway: my sister and Sylvia share similar planetary positions.

It is easily understandable that this would be true because of Elizabeth being born just 95 days after Sylvia committed suicide in 1963. That would probably preclude reincarnation, because ‘normally’ a person who kills herself would not be allowed to return to a new physical incarnation so quickly.

So, this discussion is more about what makes two people have similar mental issues.

Looking at the three charts together shows some very srong links between them. Elizabeth’s North Node is almost EXACTLY conjunct Sylvia’s natal Pluto! At the same time, Elizabeth’s Pluto is also almost exactly conjunct Sylvia’s natal Neptune. Elizabeth’s Moon is almost exactly conjunct Sylvia’s ‘fatal’ Jupiter, and Elizabeth’s Saturn is 1° from Sylvia’s ‘fatal’ Sun position in Aquarius. And finally, Elizabeth’s Mars is just over 1° from Sylvia’s natal Mars in Leo. Do you see what I mean?

One Other Shared Personality Trait

My sister liked to write poems. They were never great masterpieces, but they allowed her to share her thoughts with others in the family. Sylvia’s poetry won her literary prizes, mostly after her death. *snap*

I do not presume to ‘know’ anything more about these two individuals. The last time Elizabeth visited our family in North Vancouver, she was exhibiting very disturbed reactions, mostly bordering on paranoia. I didn’t want my daughters witnessing that, so I sent her on her way. That was in 1984. She was 21. I personally saw her in Salmon Arm, visiting our mother in 1987, but nothing since that day.

Now I wonder how she is doing. All attempts to contact her have been in vain. If she reads this, all I want to tell her is:

I love you, Liz.
