Leonard Cohen passed. Maybe Neptune crossing the South Node called him back. It was right after a series of mind-boggling scientific discoveries – the mysterious Dragonfly Galaxy, a parallel ‘satellite’ Earth theory, the mapping of a billion stars.
I actually don’t like using “r.i.p.” I have a more quantum concept: people’s energy shooting into the stratosphere and swirling around secret star realms, galactic rebirth.
Leonard Cohen was a Virgo with his Sun Rising in Virgo. He had Venus conjunct Neptune, a Pisces Moon, and a loaded 12th House. When you’ve got that going on, you automatically mine your depths and evoke those others. It’s fantastic for artists wanting to tap into the collective subconscious.
When you see glamorous, melancholy, poetic, surreal, and evocative across generations, look to Neptune/the 12th House. (Pisces Moon, big 12th House + Neptune on an inner planet exact all = Neptunian)
Cohen’s ruler was Mercury, and that was conjunct Jupiter, amplifying it to a crazy degree. He managed the rare feat of combining commercial success with what seemed to be a soul path.
You can add up the parts
but you won’t have the sum
You can strike up the march,
there is no drum
Every heart, every heart
to love will come
but like a refugee.
Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything
That’s how the light gets in.
There are a thousand poetic Leonard Cohen lyrics I could quote. He really was a magnificently functioning Neptunian guy, channeling rare magic. Feelings?
