Early illness forced seclusion but the solitude compelled her to develop an inner life, that later informed her art. And remember, the 12th house is really only considered a liability because it’s so damned magic.
The Sun conjunct Neptune is particularly potent there because the 12th is naturally Neptune-affiliated. This is the delineation from my Astral DNA birth chart report.
Sun Conjunct Neptune
You’ve got an astral all-areas pass and an innate ability to see inter-dimensional phenoms. Auric hygiene is a must – a clear bedroom or sleeping area without clutter or mirrors, frequent salt scrubs, and space clearing.
Beware of coarse substances, people, and places. E.g., drugs. Devise measures to deflect Vibe Vampires keen to acquire some of your nebulous glamor or artistic acumen. This is one of the most creative astrological alignments on record.
You can easily conjure up a magical impossibility or wild, genius juxtaposition but can freak when confronted with bureaucracy. Your Sun-Neptune conjunction squad includes Carrie Fisher, Ada Lovelace, Alessandro Michele, and Marlon James.
“I Was Born In Rain, And I Will Die In Rain…”
Kahlo’s Saturn in Pisces synced to her Cancerian North Node, reinforcing her primary path of Cosmos, Art & Psyche. Her Venus-Pluto/Leo Rising flamboyant looks and love life garnered attention, but beneath the snazzy, light-drawing Fire, she was all Water.
“I was born in rain and I will die in rain…They will say I smoked cigarettes and marijuana, cursed hoarse as a crow in all my languages, and loved morphine and Demerol and tequila and pulque, women and men. I will shrug my illusion of shoulders and answer that I am a water woman, not a vessel, not something you can sail or charter. So I am instead the tributary, the river, the fluid source, and the sea itself. I am all her rainy implications. And what do you, with your rusted compass, know of love?”
