Lightfoot Claims that Stephen Foster was his Inspiration

Stephen Foster (July 4, 1826 – January 13, 1864)

I’ve written about Stephen Foster previously. That post was triggered by a comment Gordon Lightfoot made about Foster being his inspiration as a singer-songwriter. I didn’t connect the dots at the time.

So, the 19th Century troubadour seems to have come back as the 20th Century troubadour. Lightfoot’s Mars is conjunct Foster’s ‘fatal’ Saturn and his natal Ascendant. Lightfoot’s Sun is (almost) exactly conjunct Foster’s ‘fatal’ North Node. In fact, the birth and death North Nodes in Foster’s charts are somewhat close to Lightfoot’s natal Ascendant/North Node conjunction, and within 2° of Lightfoot’s Venus. Hmm. This definitely is a reincarnational connection.

The eyes look similar, do they not?

I am an Astrologer who also writes about world events. My first eBook "At This Point in Time" is available through most on-line book stores. I have now serialized my second book "The Star of Bethlehem" here. And I am experimenting with birth and death charts. If you wish to contact me, or request a birth chart, send an email to (And, in case you are also interested, I have an extensive list of celebrity birth and death details if you wish to 'confirm' what you suspect may be a past-life experience of yours.)
