Donna Summer (December 31, 1948 – May 17, 2012)
There is a bit of controversy concerning Donna Summer‘s death in 2012.
Donna Summer died of lung cancer, but the singer wasn’t a smoker, and the cancer wasn’t related to smoking, her family’s representative said Friday.
Summer’s family issued the announcement in the wake of how “various reports currently surfacing about the cause of Ms. Summer’s death are not accurate,” representative Brian Edward said.
“Obviously, numerous factors can be attributed to the cause of cancer in general, but any details regarding the diagnosis and subsequent treatment of Ms. Summer’s case remain between her family and team of doctors,” Edwards said in a statement.CNN
This made me wonder if it was possible to link her birth and death charts with 911.
First of all, Saturn on the Ascendant is normally a signal that the individual is under constraints of some kind. In Donna’s case, I would imagine this is her religious upbringing by her parents. But it can also be a sign of a debilitation leading to death. That North Node conjunct the 9th House is interesting, too. There are two inconjuncts, coming from a conjunction between the Moon and Mars and pointing at Uranus in Gemini.
Moon Conjunct Mars
You are likely to have quite a temper and fly off the handle easily. However, if you are allowed to express your anger completely, you get over it very soon. You can be very angry at one minute, but as soon as your mood has passed, you are quite calm. However, if you get into the habit of holding in your angry feelings, they can build up to quite a fierce level and even become destructive in your life later on. Suppressed anger can be a source of many nervous disorders and mental problems when you are an adult.
Moon Inconjunct Uranus
Your relationship with your mother may be rather unstable. She may be very involved in her own interests, which prevent her from being as close to you as she would be otherwise. She may be an unconventional person, a real free spirit. The problem is that your feelings about her are mixed, both loving and unloving. You may secretly resent her. Probably you don’t feel that you can express this consciously, but it could come out when you are angry or upset. Certainly this will result in not wanting to form close relationships with other people, especially women. And the people you do choose as close friends are likely to be exciting and different from anyone you have known in the past. However, they may also be rather upsetting.
Mars Inconjunct Uranus
You have a tendency to be rash and impulsive, which may get in your way. If matters proceed too slowly, you are likely to make a sudden move that upsets the whole situation and forces you to start over. You must learn to be patient if you want to achieve your objectives.
Nevertheless, you need to find some outlet for your energy. It would not be good for you to hold it back totally, because if you do, you may be accident prone. In fact, when you are angry it would be a very good policy to go off by yourself and vent your feelings — scream and yell to your heart’s content! If you are able to blow off steam right away, you do not stay angry for long.
Saturn Conjunct Ascendant
Even while you are quite young, you will have a very serious attitude toward life, and as a result, youth will not mean as much to you as it does to others. Either you will take on responsibilities very early in life, or they will be thrust upon you. You may find it hard to simply relax and have a good time, but even if life seems hard sometimes, you should try to relax and enjoy yourself when you can. Otherwise, with this aspect you might become the type of person who always seems to put a damper on other people’s good spirits. You get so wrapped up in your own worries and responsibilities that you remind others of their own problems, even when they want to escape from them.
Now, the reason I’ve gone to such great lengths to explain these traits is to counter the perception we all have as fans to see only the best side of an individual, because they become our heroes and heroines.
So, What About 911 and Donna Summer’s Death?
Summer died on May 17, 2012, aged 63, at her home in Naples, Florida, from lung cancer. Being a nonsmoker, Summer theorized that her cancer had been caused by inhaling toxic fumes and dust from the September 11 attacks in New York City; she was in her apartment near Ground Zero when the attacks occurred. However, some reports have instead attributed the cancer to Summer’s smoking during her younger years, her continued exposure to second-hand smoking while performing in clubs well after she had quit, and a predisposition to this disease in the family.Wikipedia
Notice that 911’s Moon is also exactly conjunct Summer’s natal Uranus (the inconjunct to her natal Moon/Mars conjunction). Summer’s natal Neptune is conjunct 911’s Mercury/Ascendant conjunction @ 15° Libra. Finally, 911’s Venus is conjunct Summer’s natal Pluto. This cannot be a coincidence. Maybe she was meant to exit this life with that event. Almost nothing in her death chart links up with the event, however, except for 911’s Saturn (again) conjunct her fatal Ascendant. Hmm.
