The Jim Morrison astrology story is unique. He was a Sagittarius with Aquarius Rising and you can see it in his airy, bohemian cool. As the lead singer of the huge-in-their-day band The Doors, he was a sex-symbol and counter-cultural icon for the Pluto in Leo generation. The band name came from Aldous Huxley’s The Doors Of Perception – an exploration of psychedelic drugs for healing and spiritual exploration.
Aldous Huxley* (the Brave New World author) got the title from Sagittarius William Blake: “If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it truly is, infinite.”
Jim Morrison and William Blake were both Sagittarians. They were visionary and philosophical at their best, natural born questers. But they were also in the same Soul Pod, having the same Moon’s Nodes to within four degrees.
Morrison had the Moon in Taurus, the ultimate lunar energy for a musician and aspirant shaman. He also had Mars conjunct Uranus opposite his Sun – the signature for genius and volatility. Change God Pluto was on his North Node. It’s an aspect that you often see in people who are icons of their generation. His Neptune trined the Mars-Uranus and squared Mercury. Like many Neptunians, he chased a high and wanted to connect with something beyond this world.
So, as you can see the Jim Morrison astrology is like a magical thread that leads into a matrix of amazing connections. Sadly, he died young in a blur of lower Neptunian confusion, drugs, a hotel room, and a bath. His poetic and magic credentials were super-legit.
“Death makes angels of us all and gives us wings where we had shoulders smooth as ravens claws.”
*Aldous Huxley was born with his Sun conjunct Mercury Retrograde, interesting for the author of such Zeitgeist shifting books.
