Carrie Fisher Astrology Notes. She was Virgo, but really, she was Neptunian. That is, creative with every fiber of her being & craving magic. Or, if that were not available, a high that felt like it. Neptunian people seek God/Goddess and connection with Source Vibe. They look for it in everything even though they are it. They often select impossible love objects, to satisfy their yearning without bursting the fantasy bubble.
Neptune People can be high, low, or something in between. They’re psychic, but they haunt themselves. They often trade in creative magic, glamor, and fame, yet they’re too sensitive for that glare.
“You see, even after decades of therapy and workshops and retreats and twelve-steps and meditation and even experiencing a very weird session of rebirthings, even after rappeling down mountains and walking over hot coals and jumping out of airplanes and watching elephant races and climbing the Great Wall of China, and even after floating down the Amazon and taking ayahuasca with an ex-husband and a witch doctor and speaking in tongues and fasting (both nutritional and verbal), I remained pelted and plagued by feelings of uncertainty and despair. Yes, even after sleeping with a senator, and waking up next to a dead friend, and celebrating Michael Jackson’s last Christmas with him and his kids, I still did not feel—how shall I put this?—mentally sound.”
Carrie Fisher was a Neptunian and even if Neptune did not break her heart, it sure as hell tired it out. She was always open – some would say to a practically shamanic degree – about her various battles with addiction, drugs, the Lilac Wine, mental illness, and all.
Carrie Fisher Astrology: She Was A Mystic, Aspirant Shaman, Idol And An Addict – All Neptunian Roles
What do i mean by shamanic? In ancient traditions, the shaman journeyed into other realms to negotiate or clear the crap out at an ethereal level, on behalf of someone else. They would interpret omens and dreams, intuit cures. Her celebrity & security as a member of an old Hollywood dynasty lent her strength to speak candidly about taboo subjects. And she did it in such a style that people felt augmented in their similar struggles.
She was Sun conjunct Neptune with Mars in Pisces quincunx to Mercury in Libra. She was an icon because of her Princess Leia role in Star Wars. She took on the character in the latest Star Wars, with all its publicity obligations and hype, at the time of her second Saturn Return. AKA potentially a massive stress factor. Albeit a lucrative one.
She Took On The Star Wars Publicity Tour During Her 2nd Saturn Return
For an introvert with dignified Capricorn Rising and an exalted home-body Moon in Taurus, it may have been too much. She was also in recovery. The second Saturn Return is a time for contemplation and grounding. You can see how jetting around the place, doing endless media and fielding questions about being formerly hot would have been stressful.
She was a genius writer and (i just learned this) script editor.
“Sometimes she’d just walk around the city alone. Watch the people, smell the food, the bus exhaust, the smoke coming up through the grating. She’d feel protected somehow, found a sense of belonging in the hectic sprawl. And the next minute she’d feel like the one who couldn’t break the code, hit the right stride, catch the wave. Potholes and traffic and bums, oh my. With all the honking and the hum of movement, the living, breathing blur of noise gently pressing in on her, the great purr of the Metropolitan Cat turning into a dull roar. She’d feel so silent on the inside, her head as quiet as a stretch of sand, a cathedral silently worshipping the life that was all around her, storing it up for later when she needed some ‘too much’ to draw upon.”
