What’s Love Got to Do with It? Everything

Tina Turner (born Anna Mae Bullock) (November 26, 1939 – May 23, 2013)

Then and now

Tina Turner was a titan of rock ‘n’ roll. She was also a survivor of domestic abuse. That probably made her a better person in so many ways. Her most famous song is in today’s title. She said the word, “Everything” in answer to the question in an interview years ago. That somehow makes it all right.

Her birth chart has two inconjuncts. Maybe their descriptions will help us to understand her better.

Mars Inconjunct Pluto

You have a strong will and always want to have your own way. But very often it seems as if tremendous forces are working to prevent you from getting what you want. If you have this problem, it is because of the way you go about trying to achieve your ends. If you put too much force into your desire to get something, you may unknowingly alienate people because your aggressive manner shows that you will let nothing stop you from getting what you want. Even if that isn’t the way you really feel about it, you should recognize that your forcefulness creates this impression.

On the other hand, this aspect sometimes means that you are the victim of such energies in someone else, that you always seem to attract forceful persons who give you a hard time. Either they never let you have your own way, or they may be rather brutal, physically and psychologically. Learn tp recognize such persons in advance and avoid them. Also think about why you are attracted to them, since in fact you may be quite fascinated by their forcefulness.

At certain times in your life, when there are great changes taking place within you and in your environment, you will have to work very hard to make your affairs turn out right. There is nothing to be done at those times except do the work that must be done. Fortunately you have plenty of energy and enough endurance to pull through anything that you will encounter in life. You are basically tough and persistent. These changes are an integral part of your growth, and even if everything seems to go wrong they are necessary for your full development.

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 closely, you will find only emptiness and disintegration. It is difficult for you to realize that this is not the truth about your inner self.

See what I mean? She had to go through the trials and tribulations of her younger years in order to succeed. Growth is the reward for perseverance.

I set the clock for 10 am local time, to demonstrate how she faced her demons straight on (Mars Opposition Pluto) and overcame her fears. By the end, I suspect that she had no fear of death.

Turner sometimes referred to herself as a “Buddhist–Baptist”, alluding to her upbringing in the Baptist church where her father was a deacon and her later conversion to Buddhism as an adult. In a 2016 interview with Lion’s Roar magazine, she declared, “I consider myself a Buddhist.” The February 15, 1979, issue of Jet magazine featured Turner with her Buddhist altar on the cover. Turner has credited the Liturgy of Nichiren Daishonin and Soka Gakkai International for her introduction to spiritual knowledge.

Turner stated in her 1986 autobiography I, Tina that she was introduced to Nichiren Buddhism by Ike Turner’s friend Valerie Bishop, who taught her the chant nam-myōhō-renge-kyō in 1973. Turner later stated in her 2020 spiritual memoir Happiness Becomes You that her son, Ronnie Turner, first suggested she might benefit from chanting. Turner practiced Buddhism with her neighborhood Soka Gakkai International chanting group. After chanting, Turner noticed positive changes in her life which she attributed to her newfound spiritual practice. “I realized that I had within me everyone I needed to change my life for the better,” she said. During the hardest times of her life, Turner chanted four hours per day, and although in later life she no longer chanted as much, she still maintained a daily practice. Turner likened Buddhist chanting to singing: “…Nam-myoho-renge-kyo is like a song. In the Soka Gakkai tradition, we are taught how to sing it. It is a sound and a rhythm and it touches a place inside you. That place we try to reach is the subconscious mind. I believe that is the highest place…”. Dramatizations of Turner chanting were included both in the 1993 film What’s Love Got to Do with It and in the 2021 documentary film Tina.

Turner met with the 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso in Einsiedeln, Switzerland, on August 2, 2005. She also met with Swiss-Tibetan Buddhist singer Dechen Shak-Dagsay and in 2009 co-created a spiritual music project with Shak-Dagsay and Swiss singer Regula Curti called Beyond.

Religion (from Wikipedia)

There are several remarkable links between Tina’s birth and death charts: for one thing, her North and South Nodes have flipped; her Neptune moved to the opposite side (conjunct her natal Jupiter); her ‘fatal’ Mars is conjunct her natal Pluto (and opposite her ‘fatal’ Pluto); while her natal Mars is conjunct her ‘fatal’ Saturn; and her natal Uranus returned to its original position. This is proof that she met her personal challenges head-on and conquered them all. This is a successful life well lived.

It’s only love, and that’s all!

An American Revolutionary Came Back to Finish the Job

Button Gwinnett (March 3, 1735 [OS] – May 19, 1777)

It’s a shame that I don’t know (in the present time) American history around the time of the Declaration of Independence. This man, Button Gwinnett, slipped completely under my radar for the time period.

There is one inconjunct in his birth chart, and it’s one that shouldn’t have surprised me.

Sun Inconjunct Pluto

There will be many changes in your life, and you will be affected by deep psychological forces that may be difficult to understand at times, as well as confusing to the people around you. You approach people with great intensity, and your emotional involvements are seldom casual. Either you like people very much or you dislike them intensely. Possibly your attitudes on other matters will be extreme also. One of the most important lessons that you will have to learn is to be more moderate.

By the time of his death, as the result of wounds from a duel, the inconjuncts doubled up, based on a noon death.

The conjunction between the Moon and Saturn (both inconjunct the Sun/Midheaven conjunction), would have been very emotional. Of course, no one wants to die, but sometimes ol’ Father Time has other plans for you…

Ross Perot (June 27, 1930 – July 9, 2019)

Ross Perot, as some of you may already know, was a third party Presidential candidate in two elections.

This time the inconjunct is between Venus and Saturn, so a whole new approach was decided upon:

Venus Inconjunct Saturn

This aspect means that your family may make you feel that you are unworthy of love. Unless you are given a great deal of love while you are young, you will be attracted to cold and unfeeling people when you are an adult. Such people are an outward expression of your inner feeling of unworthiness.

The day after I passed on the images of Lyman Hall, George Walton, and Button Gwinnett to Jo Streit, she excitedly called me reporting that she knew who Gwinnett was in contemporary times. Button Gwinnett, Jo related, reincarnated as Ross Perot. Jo’s assessment has been confirmed by Ahtun Re, as have the matches between Hall and Streit, and Walton and Bass. Button Gwinnett and Lyman Hall were great friends and allies in the Revolutionary Era.

Semkiw, Walter. Return of the Revolutionaries (p. 391). Hampton Roads Publishing. Kindle Edition.

May I remind you, the reader, that my purpose for doing these comparison charts is to attempt to prove that reincarnation exists with the use of astrology? I know it feels like I’m flogging a dead horse, at times, but the greater purpose is to leave a lasting legacy of actual cases.

I suppose the strongest ‘proof’ comes in the North and South Nodes flip-flopping between the individuals’ birth charts. And tied in with that inversion is Gwinnett’s ‘fatal’ Moon/Saturn conjunction.

I am not overlooking the fact that Perot’s Saturn (on his Descendant) is conjunct Gwinnett’s natal Jupiter. Gwinnett’s ‘fatal’ Pluto is now the point of a Yod from Perot’s Jupiter and Neptune inconjuncts. Plus, Perot’s Saturn is in an inconjunct of its own with Gwinnett’s ‘fatal’ Uranus and his natal Part of Fortune. And the one that makes these two connected as men of action: the position on Mars in their birth charts is a conjunction @ 18° Taurus.

Doh! I Never Compared Diana’s Birth and Death Charts

Diana, Princess of Wales (July 1, 1961 – August 31, 1997)

As I was watching a YouTube video of Ellie Adams and Brandy Burrow dissecting Diana’s death, it suddenly occurred to me that I hadn’t finished the job that I’d set out to do in my book “At This Point in Time”.

There obviously are some very sensitive points in Diana’s birth chart that got triggered when she died.

The most dramatic involves a repeat of the Yod that points at her natal Jupiter (@ 5° Aquarius – the Peoples’ Princess). This time the natal Mercury and Pluto inconjuncts are pointing at her ‘fatal’ Uranus, while her ‘fatal’ Sun is inconjunct her natal Jupiter. Weird that! Diana’s natal Saturn is conjunct her ‘fatal’ Neptune, while her natal Neptune is conjunct her ‘fatal’ Mars. This truly was her ‘get out of jail free card’.

As I reported in my book, Diana’s last words were “Leave me alone.”

Sunday was My Wife’s Birthday

A Perfect Day

Just about the time the sun was setting, Roger, Susan’s son-in-law, put a YouTube video on so he could express how he felt about the day. His was the Lou Reed version, here’s the BBC’s.

Here’s the setting sun shot of taking photos of the end to a perfect day.

I Suppose: Once a Spy, Always a Spy

Comparing John Dee and “Ramsay” Birth Charts

It’s John Dee’s signature “for your eyes only” to his Queen (Elizabeth I). That’s where Ian Fleming got the “I”dea for James Bond’s licence to kill. But I want to be a bit serious now.

The interactive Yod between these two charts is based on a inconjunct of Ramsay’s Moon/Ascendant conjunction and his Neptune (conjunct Dee’s Uranus) pointing at Dee’s Ascendant (conjunct Ramsay’s Uranus). Their births are 373 years apart. Are they connected to each other? I think so, through me.

Was This Event Foretold by the Third Fatima Prophecy?

Pope John Paul II Shot (May 13, 1981)

You can’t get any more specific than this image. Supposedly, John Paul II thought that the attempt on his life was the 3rd Fatima prophecy. But was it?

The third part of the secret revealed at the Cova da Iria-Fátima, on 13 July 1917.
I write in obedience to you, my God, who command me to do so through his Excellency the Bishop of Leiria and through your Most Holy Mother and mine.
After the two parts which I have already explained, at the left of Our Lady and a little above, we saw an Angel with a flaming sword in his left hand; flashing, it gave out flames that looked as though they would set the world on fire; but they died out in contact with the splendour that Our Lady radiated towards him from her right hand: pointing to the earth with his right hand, the Angel cried out in a loud voice: ‘Penance, Penance, Penance!’. And we saw in an immense light that is God, something similar to how people appear in a mirror when they pass in front of it, a Bishop dressed in White. We had the impression that it was the Holy Father. Other Bishops, Priests, men and women Religious going up a steep mountain, at the top of which there was a big Cross of rough-hewn trunks as of a cork-tree with the bark; before reaching there the Holy Father passed through a big city half in ruins and half trembling with halting step, afflicted with pain and sorrow, he prayed for the souls of the corpses he met on his way; having reached the top of the mountain, on his knees at the foot of the big Cross he was killed by a group of soldiers who fired bullets and arrows at him, and in the same way there died one after another the other Bishops, Priests, men and women Religious, and various lay people of different ranks and positions. Beneath the two arms of the Cross there were two Angels each with a crystal aspersorium in his hand, in which they gathered up the blood of the Martyrs and with it sprinkled the souls that were making their way to God.



I’m going to show you two charts. The first is of the day that “Our Lady” showed the three children the three prophecies. The second is the moment that John Paul II was shot.

Note that the double inconjunct from Uranus to the Sun/Mercury conjunction is quite evident (and would be for the whole day). I won’t delineate the aspects, since this is a spiritual event, and not a physical one. (I know, that’s not a very good excuse, but it’s one that I’m sticking with.)

This chart has a Yod linking Neptune and Pluto with the Sun. I thought that was significant. Otherwise, this is not a significant event (unless, of course, you’re the Pope). But combining the two charts yields a hidden message.

The Assassination Attempt’s Mars is conjunct the Fatima Secrets’ Moon (in Taurus). At the same time the Assassination Attempt’s Venus is conjunct the Fatima Secrets’ Jupiter (in Gemini). And the Midheaven in the Assassination Attempt’s chart is conjunct the Sun in the Fatima Secrets’ chart @ 2o° Cancer. Even Neptune in the Fatima Secret’s chart is connected to the North Node in the Assassination Attempt’s chart. But is that enough proof? No, I think it requires the ‘hidden’ hand, as it were:

Fatima Secrets’ Ascendant is in the Middle of the Assassination Attempt’s Moon and Jupiter

Now, that’s what I call ‘destiny’.

Let’s Just Take a Few Moments to:

Pause and Reflect

I have been so busy lately trying to ‘prove’ astrologically that reincarnation is a ‘fact’, that I have forgotten that we are talking about peoples’ lives, both now and in the past. Everyone is trying to do the best that they can. And no one is just letting their ego get in the way of their personal ‘truth’.

In recent days, I revisited a breakthrough I had in 2021: my friend, here unnamed, had a regression years previously in which he discovered a life as a very important Roman in the 1st Century. For me, It was like searching for a needle in a haystack, but I was finally able to pinpoint who that prior life was. My friend was slightly unimpressed, at the time, mainly because it seemed so unreal to be that grand personage.

So, yesterday, I sent him the composite charts of that person’s life and death and his own present life. As I have discovered with my karmic astrology research, the connections have become much more clear to me, now. Most people cannot read astrology charts to begin with, but some of my astrology friends have begun to see where the links are, and we all feel very certain that these links are ‘the real thing’.

I also sent my Roman reincarnated friend pictures of the Roman bust of his prior life individual, a copy of the drawing that his regressionist drew, and a 1990’s publicity shot from his present life. To my eye, they are all of the same soul. I think he has finally accepted the reality of what seemed like just a fantasy before.

So, to repeat a now seemingly trite statement:

The 19th Century Version of a Sleeping Prophet

Andrew Jackson Davis (August 11, 1826 – January 13, 1910)

It was a question in the back of my mind: it’s all well and fine to relate present day individuals with their revolutionary counterparts, but what about their intervening lives? Andrew Jackson Davis is one. But before I reveal who he reincarnated as in the present, you’ll need to see his birth and death charts.

The timing is randomized and yet there are two spectacular inconjuncts, as ‘luck’ would have it.

Sun Inconjunct Uranus

There is a side of your personality that is very restless and impatient with rules, even when you know they are for your own good. You want very much to go your own way and do your own thing, even when you aren’t entirely sure that it is the right direction for you. So you rebel in subtle ways by having sudden fits of obstinacy and moods of feeling contrary, especially to authority figures.

Moon Inconjunct Saturn

This aspect usually means that your need for emotional security conflicts with your need to live with the world’s demands. Each of us needs to be accepted and loved for what we are, in order to have enough self-confidence to deal with the world. But we also have to learn to live with our own life situations in order to survive. In other words, we have to realize that we can’t have everything we want. With this aspect, these two needs are working against each other. Probably you will satisfy one of them at the expense of the other.

His Death was Slightly Hidden

For the longest while I couldn’t find where he died, until I Googled that question specifically: the answer was Boston. The noon-time death is for convenience, and there are four inconjuncts: a double one links the Sun/Midheaven conjunction with Pluto; the next links Jupiter and the Ascendant, and the last links (surprise, surprise!) the Moon and Neptune. That means that only the inconjunct between the Sun and Pluto is fully reliable, demonstrating that his death was affected by a deep psychological force. Hmm.

Would You Believe that This Man Reincarnated as Neale Donald Walsch?

A second past life match for Neale Donald Walsch was made in a similar manner. I was researching a past lifetime for Mark Thurston, a leader of Edgar Cayce’s ARE. Ahtun Re told me that Mark served as a secretary to the famous 18th century medium, Andrew Jackson Davis. I thought the best way to pursue this case was to read books Davis had written to see if I would find clues regarding his secretary.

5 Andrew Jackson Davis Neale Donald Walsch

I ordered two of Davis’s books through the Internet. I started reading and after studying 5 pages, I had the same experience as I did when I was reading Marianne Williamson’s book. It was as if a hammer hit me over the head with the realization that I have encountered this writing style before. It took me a few few minutes before I realized where I have read this author before. It then dawned on me that Davis had the same linguistic writing style, the same linguistic voice, as is found in Conversations With God, the best selling trilogy written by Neale Donald Walsch.

Reincarnation Research

This is exactly what I meant about intervening lives.

There are some very obvious links between these three charts. They have mostly to do with Davis’ death chart and Walsch’s birth chart. I thought that strange. Especially that conjunction between Walsch’s Saturn and Davis’ ‘fatal’ Pluto, and Walsch’s Moon and Davis’ ‘fatal’ Sun but it makes sense, if you think about it. Because Walsch’s Sun is conjunct Davis’ Jupiter, the whole unfolding Universe is on display.

But What Happens if William Walter is Included?

Here the Sun/Jupiter link between Walsch and Davis is increased by Walter’s natal Venus. At the same time, Walsch’s Jupiter conjunction with Davis’ natal Sun is added to by Walter’s natal Moon.

Would we have it any other way? Of course, not.

He was an American Friend Then, and He is Now

Gilbert du Motier (Lafayette) (September 6, 1757 – May 20, 1834)

It’s wonderful how things turn out. Yet another confirmed case of reincarnation (by Ahtum Re) links the revolutionary past with the present day (well, at least in the last generation, anyway).

The timing of the Marquis de Lafayette‘s birth is randomized. There are no inconjuncts. So, what we see is what we get: his Part of Fortune is almost exactly conjunct the Midheaven. He’s a true revolutionary.

Marie-Joseph Paul Yves Roch Gilbert du Motier de La Fayette, Marquis de La Fayette (6 September 1757 – 20 May 1834), known in the United States as Lafayette, was a French aristocrat, freemason, and military officer who fought in the American Revolutionary War, commanding American troops in several battles, including the siege of Yorktown. After returning to France, he was a key figure in the French Revolution of 1789 and the July Revolution of 1830. He has been considered a national hero in both countries.


I’m not convinced that this is a true picture of the time he died, so we’ll ignore the one inconjunct linking Mars with his ‘fatal’ Ascendant. The lack of any other inconjuncts may prove significant.

Tony Blair (May 6, 1953)

Are you surprised? You shouldn’t be, because Tony Blair, as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, came to the support of the United States after 9-11 and the subsequent wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

In contemporary times, America has another ally from Europe in America’s war on terrorism, one who has even been called a cheerleader by the press. Tony Blair, England’s prime minister, has spent time at President George W. Bush’s Crawford ranch in efforts to join forces with America in a common cause. This effort parallels Lafayette’s role, though the common cause this time is terrorism. Based on the similar role that Blair is playing, as well as consistent facial architecture, I arrived at the hypothesis that Tony Blair is the reincarnation of the Marquis de Lafayette. In a session with Kevin Ryerson, Ahtun Re confirmed this match, as well as the other past-life matches presented in this chapter.

Semkiw, Walter. Return of the Revolutionaries (p. 345). Hampton Roads Publishing. Kindle Edition.

Notice again: no inconjuncts. Also, notice the echoing opposition between their natal Moons and the planet Pluto. Hmm. What goes around comes around again. It is only when the three charts are combined can you see the full dynamic.

What I always hope to see is a link between their North and South Nodes and I wasn’t disappointed with these two: Blair’s Moon is (almost) exactly conjunct the Marquis’ South Node, while Blair’s North Node is just 4° off. Blair’s Saturn/Neptune conjunction @ 22° Libra is within 3° of the Marquis’ ‘fatal’ Moon. And Blair’s Jupiter is conjunct the Marquis’ ‘fatal’ Sun. There are other connections, but that’s enough for now.
