Gord Downie singer-songwriter leader of Canadian band The Tragically Hip has died October 17 at 53 of brain cancer. The band never made it big beyond the 49th parallel but The Hip has been the quintessential Canadian rock band for 30 years. Their last cross-Canada tour in 2016 after Downie announced that he had been diagnosed with a particularly deadly type of brain cancer ended with 11 million Canadians watching their final concert live.
Outpourings of sympathy for Downie’s family and four children came from Prime Minister Trudeau who was in tears as well as from indigenous leaders and fans. The flag on the Peace Tower in Ottawa Canada’s Capital will be flown at half-mast until sunset on the day of the funeral or memorial service of the late Gord Downie. Canadian’s feel like they have lost a Canadian hero.
For his work in support of Indigenous people to reconciliation in Canada in 2016, he was given an honorary aboriginal name, Wicapi Omani, which is Lakota for “man who walks among the stars.” Now Downie is.
Let’s look at Downie’s astrology
Born Feb 6, 1964, in Kingston Ontario time unknown. The strongly AQUARIAN rebellious man was a unique “out of the box” individual and thinker who worked well with groups. He was a man who thought inclusively.
He had MARS and SATURN conjunct to his Sun. He was a seriously passionate individual with an electric wired energy. He saw the world from a higher perspective. Mars and Saturn are a difficult combination karmically. He was driven to be his own man but also respected traditions.
I presume his MOON was in deeply intense soulful emotional cathartic Scorpio. He had immense charisma and willpower.
MERCURY in CAPRICORN Gord as a serious communicator and thinker. He respected history worked hard took his words seriously.

VENUS in PISCES
Gord was very much a poet and artist a spiritual man very loving and compassionate. He was charitable and sensitive to others’ pain.
JUPITER in ARIES at the 15th degree. Gord was an independent headstrong energetic fighter with lots of energy.
At the 15th degree. Gord was an independent headstrong energetic fighter with lots of energy. He liked to take risks and got bored easily.
NEPTUNE in SCORPIO
The planet of artists and a spiritually powerful person who can have enormous effects on the world. Money power and influence came to Gord through his songs and deep insights into the human condition. His artistry was transforming and therapeutic. He cared about soul. Neptune squared his SUN MARS and SATURN. Saturn is the planet of tragedy. NEPTUNE makes a FINGER OF GOD to JUPITER in ARIES and URANUS PLUTO conjunction in VIRGO. Jupiter in Aries likes to be first with everything-Hip.
NORTH NODE in CANCER
Spiritually his greatest growth was to be a father a family man and nurture others. He was very sensitive and emotional. SOUTH NODE in CAPRICORN- career was important and he already understood the structure of business. He was a serious man in many ways.
URANUS PLUTO conjunction opposite CHIRON in PISCES
This is a transpersonal aspect which millions of people share born during the same year. Gord came to heal people to help heal the world’s soul.
His death was expected.

PLUTO Planet of Death and Rebirth has been squaring Gordon’ Natal Jupiter since 2015. This is another blessing or a Good Death. Gordon had to face his mortality and he lived his life to the best of his ability.
