River Phoenix (August 23, 1970 – October 31, 1993)
Have you ever wondered why only the good die young? River Phoenix was no angel, but his death at 23 was a surprise to ordinary folk. Maybe he had inner demons that were not visible to the viewing public.
This birth time is considered excellent. His chart shows a powerful T-square involving Moon/Saturn opposite Neptune, all squared to the Sun and Mars. There is only one inconjunct.
Moon Inconjunct Jupiter
This aspect indicates that you have a positive, optimistic outlook on life, and you enjoy socializing with good friends. However, there are some dangers with this aspect. First, it can be a sign that you are self-indulgent and possibly even selfish, although this is not likely to happen if you have a good, strong relationship with your mother. You have a great need to be cared for and supported, to be accepted for what you are with no strings attached. If this need is fulfilled, the positive side of this aspect will flourish. But if your mother does not support your needs fully, you will feel insecure and will look elsewhere for support and fulfillment. In this case your concern will be totally for yourself with little thought for other people’s needs.
Overdoing it, perhaps?
I am showing you this chart to demonstrate how those same two energies were triggered at the time of his death: Moon inconjunct Venus; and Jupiter inconjunct the Midheaven. That seems fated, somehow.
So, What About the Cosmic Cross?
I thought you’d never ask.
It’s only when we put the two charts together, do we get a clearer glimpse of what was going on at the time of his death. The most important link is River’s natal Sun being transited by the ‘fatal’ Ascendant. At the same time, the ‘fatal’ Sun was conjunct his natal Ascendant. His time on earth was truly at an end
