The Murder of Lana Clarkson? (February 3, 2003)
Saturn Season Astrology reposted her May 31st post about this incident on Facebook yesterday, along with a YouTube video about it. I had intended to look at it, too, but it got overlooked in the meantime.
Phil Spector (December 26, 1939)
I believe the timing of his birth chart to be accurate. Even so, the two inconjuncts are not dependent on the time being precise.
Sun Inconjunct Pluto
You have a very strong will and can be quite stubborn, even when you don’t have any particular reason to be. It is as if you automatically resist any pressure to act in a particular way, even when you know it is good for you. This may arise from a fear of being controlled, helpless or manipulated by anyone else. As you get older, this fear may lead you to manipulate others so that they cannot manipulate you. It is very important to develop confidence in yourself, so that you will not behave this way very frequently.
Saturn Inconjunct Neptune
This aspect…can have a variety of effects, one of which may be difficulty in relating fantasy and imagination, on one hand, to reality, duty, obligation and work, on the other. Usually the reality, duty and work aspect of the combination is dominant, at least at first. Your imaginative side tends to be transformed into nervousness, fear and irrational anxieties. The most negative manifestation of this aspect is a feeling that you have to keep a tight lid on yourself and that if you look inside yourself too deeply, you will find only emptiness and disintegration. It is difficult for you to realize that this is not the truth about your inner self.
Lana Clarkson (April 5, 1962 – February 3, 2003)
This birth chart is totally randomized, so the double Yod pointing at Pluto and the Ascendant would be only pointing at Pluto if the time is wrong. There is one other inconjunct, too.
Sun Inconjunct Neptune
If you develop a bad self-image (because of your sensitivity to your environment and the people around you), you will assert yourself in unhealthy ways. Instead of standing up for your own rights, you will give in to another’s will, but in such a way as to make that person feel guilty. Often you will refuse to tell someone what you really want, thereby allowing him or her to hurt you without meaning to. You may begin to see yourself as a helpless victim of circumstance.
Mercury Inconjunct Pluto
You might misuse this ability (to understand how people’s minds work) by trying to control people’s thought and words. Also you may love mysteries so much that you ge involved in complicated plots and arrangements with your friends. You may enjoy working in secret and creating an air of mystery about yourself, but this could backfire and make others misunderstand you or even fear what you are doing.
Mercury Inconjunct Ascendant (maybe)
You are likely to have some problems, but not serious ones, in communicating with others. The problem is that people’s first impression of you may not fit in with what you say or your manner of thinking and speaking. People tend to hear what they expect to hear, and they may not listen to you as carefully as they should. So you will have to be as clear as possible and insist that others listen to what you are really saying. If others do not understand you, it is up to you to set them straight.
Saturn Inconjunct Pluto
Even under favorable circumstances, this aspect usually means that you are resistant to change, that you hold on to any situation, no matter how bad, until it is totally intolerable. Then when change does take place, it has to create a revolution and a total breakdown of everything that came before it. You must learn to adapt to circumstances a bit more gracefully and not be afraid of occasional compromise.
Saturn Inconjunct Ascendant (maybe)
With this aspect you probably have a rather serious attitude toward life and other people. It may be quite difficult for you to simply go out and have a good time. You want to be serious and to spend all your time performing significant tasks.
You need to be encouraged to believe in yourself and to recognize your personal strength. You have to be helped to realize that you as an individual are worth a lot and that you need to get some satisfaction from life as much as the next person does.
Was Her Death an Accident or Murder?
It has always struck me that Phil did not mean to kill Lana. I believe they were having a bit of fun using the gun as a sexual tool, when it discharged. Comparing their birth charts with this event shows me that the two of them were compatible, and the circumstances seem accidental. Now Phil is behind bars…
Sometimes fun can go too far.
Major clue from Leonard Cohen (as quoted on the film “Marianne & Leonard: Word of Love”): ‘Phil Spector stuck a gun in my neck and said, “I love you.” I said, “I hope you do.”‘ (This was during the chaotic recording of “Death of a Ladies’ Man”.)
