Does Marilyn Monroe ever go away? She is my prime example of the enduring allure & mystique of Neptunians. As in, she had Neptune Rising in Leo.
And now, of course, she’s back again. This time in a home movie of her apparently smoking pot or whatever.
Neptune RULES film, glamour and the collective public consciousness. Peeps who have a prominent Neptune are v.good at tapping into that. It’s also an astro-indicator that you should lay off the hooch. There are addictive tendencies in there with the glamour & mystique. .
I have not thought of Monroe in ages but naturally i went through that teenage phase of being obsessed with her. I read all her biographies, from the reverential Gloria Steinem one to Norman Mailer’s “factoidal” work & all those things about scandals, Kennedies etc. It’s bimbonic but my knowledge of 60s politics and culture comes entirely from reading Marilyn bios.
If she had lived on, she would have been about to have her Uranus Return now!
She was Sun + Mercury in Gemini (wits!) with Neptune in Leo Rising – like i said, Moon-Jupiter in Aquarius, Mars-Uranus in Pisces and PLUTO conjunct the North Node in Kataka/12th House. Pluto-North Node is powerful destiny & i don’t think what happened to her in the end was her fate. Although you could argue that the 12th house has themes of self-destruction/oblivion. I think she could also have become someone else.
Hmm. This is interesting. I just realized that Princess Diana also had Pluto conjunct North Node. There is a Pluto-North Node conjunction happening later this year but they’re not so common you know.
