RIP “you sexy thing” life and death of Errol Brown

I must have missed this. Hot Chocolate lead singer and songwriter Errol Brown passed away May 6 in his home in Kingston, Jamaica surrounded by his wife of 30 years and his daughters. He died from liver cancer.

Hot Chocolate singer

 

Hot Chocolate has one of the biggest pop/disco hits ever in the world. 1975’s “You sexy thing” / I believe in Miracles”  which Errol co-wrote for his wife  became the only track that made British Top Ten status in the 1970’s, 1980’s and 1990’s because of its usage in the 1997 hit British movie The Full Monty. 

Brown moved to the U.K. as a child.  John Lennon helped the group in its fame after he approved the bands funk-soul reggae version of Give Peace A Chance.

The Band had many top hits; Everyone’s a Winner, Emma, So You Win Again, and my fave Put Your Love In Me.  The band performed at the wedding reception for Prince Charles and Lady Diana.

Errol was awarded an MBE in 2003 and he was touring up till 2009.

death and life Astrology, Tara Greene

For a man who became famous for singing you sexy thing. I find it totally cosmically in tune that he would have the SUN in Sexy Scorpio conjunct to Mercury planet of communications on his Scorpio Mid-Heaven or worldly fame position where he shines the brightest.  OK that just about says it all. 

SCORPIO is traditionally ruled by Mars. Errol had Mars RETROGRADE at 20 degrees of GEMINI which Mercury also rules, making his Scorpio communications abilities to transport others through his personal sexual powerful aura even stronger.

Mars is conjunct to Saturn also Retrograde in this Solar 10th house chart

in the 5th house of creativity, artists, leaders, big-hearted, loyal, passionate folks. that fits too.

Mars conjunct Saturn both Retrograde would usually be considered a very hard aspect traditionally. It show a serious communications side to Errol. He carefully thought out and organized business. This aspect also gave Errol staying power, Saturn rules maturity and longevity. Plus Saturn is conjunct to the North Star which often shows up in those who have big success in their lives. Others naturally revolve around them. They are “way showers” and compasses. I believe he was a consummate professional. There may have been hardships and difficulty when he was young.  His family moved from Jamaica to the U.K. when he was 12. I don’t have details about his early life. 

Saturn also squares his Natal VENUS/NEPTUNE conjunction in LIBRA 

In this chart these two incredibly romantic, creative, idealistic, soul mate, socially adept charming, dreamy planets are in the 8th house which is traditionally Scorpio.  This strengthened Errol enabling him to make his dreams become reality.

The song that I love most from Hot Chocolate is Put Your Love In Me. I searched for years to find out who did it. To me it embodies that Venus/Neptune conjunction perfectly. It is so spiritual, dreamy, romantic and feminine. A man asking a woman to put her love in him. Beautiful 

ABOUT VENUS CONJUNCT NEPTUNE

Anyone with a natal Venus/Neptune conjunction is incurably romantic especially in Libra. I have this same aspect myself in Libra. Depending on other planetary placements in anyone’s chart this aspect can make one prone to be a dreamer without substance, someone who  can be a martyr, very compassionate, an incredibly creative person, an artist, musician, actor, poet, film maker. These people can get lost in illusions and delusions, bankruptcy, addictions, drug abuse, gambling, sex addiction and alcoholism is the other, down side of Venus/Neptune .

Moon in Taurus in the 4th house squaring Jupiter in Leo in the 7th

Rules singers, sensual people. Errol was a private person whose home and family were everything. He was a stubborn, hard worker, strong and physically attractive. 

Pluto was conjunct his North Node in Leo on the 7th house cusp

This aspect guaranteed that Errol’s soul was fully manifesting in his lifetime and guarantees success. It also confers fame, status, riches, strong adoration from others. He was a big-hearted generous, intense, soulful man. 

Errol also had Jupiter in Leo in the 7th house of “others”

Again a kingly sign, generous, passionate, charismatic, the “sun king” royalty, fame. He made others feel like Queens or Kings.He played for Royalty.

Uranus in Gemini in the 4th house

Errol thought differently and communicated in new inventive ways. He had a lot of energy and needed freedom although intensely loyal to his family. 

Errol was a #22 The Fool, the enlightened One, and he is a Soul Number 4 the King or Emperor. 

His DEATH 

The liver is ruled by Jupiter, he died from liver cancer. 

Jupiter in Leo is squaring his Sun vitality and his Mercury. 

Mars was conjunct his Natal Moon in Taurus

transitting Venus is sitting right on his Natal Saturn

A beautiful ending to a life well lived. 

The Total Solar Eclipse at 29 degrees Pisces was square to his Natal Saturn and opposite Venus/Neptune

That symbolizes and end to life and a peaceful return to the Source, This could have been Errol’s last life time, which is  a good thing.

We will miss you Errol but your music lives on.

5 Alarm Aries DARK New Moon, by Tara Greene

March 30   This is an auspicous  special DARK or BLACK New MOON as we have 2 NEW MOON’s this month in EDT/GMT. Pacific TIME ZONE peeps don’t qualify for this double NEW MOON technically as they had no other New Moon in March.

Interesting, All NEW MOON’s are new Beginnings and an ARIES NEW MOON is a shiny HOT NEW MOON NEW MOON @ 9 degrees ARIES occurs at  11:44 am PDT/2:44 pm EDT/ 6:44 p.m. GMT THe DARK MOON lights the match of a T -SQUARE of the three major planets Uranus, Pluto and Jupiter 

SUN + MOON conjunct URANUS at 12 degrees ARIES

These are the THREE MUSKETEERS- Aries – warriors, sharp weapons, etc.

Three Musketeers tara Greene astrology

 They Square PLUTO at 13 degrees – PLUTO GOES RETROGRADE on APRIL 14 the day before the BIG TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE in LIBRA SUN MOON & URANUS square JUPITER in Cancer at 11 + degrees.

JUPITER Expands whatever it contacts so expect heightened URANIAN ENERGY and REVOLUTION and SHADOW material-

PLUTO- fighting, angst, tension, anger, and deaths, vindictiveness, underhanded ruthlessness, secrets, power grabs- explosions, bombings, tsunamis, flooding,

Emotions running VERY HIGH and WILD – Ukriane, Egypt, China, Venezuela, Turkey, Iran, Syria, etc.

JUNO Asteroid Goddess of Purely FEMININE wisdom is in the T- SQUARE at 14 degrees Aries It’s time for the WOMEN’S unique genius to come forward into the revolution to begin in ernest. No more self immolation.

ERIS Planet of DISCORD is also at 22 degrees ARIES chomping at the bit, adding more fuel to the FIRE. The SOUTH NODE is at 28 degrees Aries -that’s actually 6 planets/objects in Aries. A 6 alarm REFRY.

MARS at 22 degrees Libra Retrograde is opposite ERIS- DISCOrdia  DANCING IN THE STREETS.

Mars, ruler of ARIES is RETROGRADE- side-stepping, submerging the anger and  is conjunct the NORTH NODE in Libra at 28 degrees  

a bit of a tentative step off the cliff of rebalancing relationships. Not yet, not quite. Can’t decide. 

THE ENERGY WILL BEGIN TO SHIFT SOMEWHAT at the ARIES NEW MOON but I still feel the MARS RETROGRADE will keep the energy in check. This is awkward and DANGEROUS and can make the inflammatory nature of this NEW MOON simmer below the surface- making it more dangerous and likely to really erupt at the LUNAR ECLIPSE April 15 and the GRAND CARDINAL CROSS April 20-23 and later. 

NORTH NODE is conjunct to VESTA Goddess and KEEPER of the SACRED FLAME VESTA is FEMININE FOCUS, which is Kundalini, sexual tantric magic, dedication to inner SOUL  goals leads the way, at 26 degrees LIBRA.  In the darkest time of the month, this would have been the monthly moon time when all the women would be bleeding together in the RED TENT, yurt, cave, Moon Lodge. A time for Introspection, rest.

In these seemingly dark, dark times, of change it is important to see the LIGHT,’ focus on the LIGHT ahead. I received this image in my meditations today. It is very reminiscent of the HERMIT in the TAROT, the Guide within who holds up the light to guide us and protects us. it is Feminine, Virgo. MEDITATE at this time of turning within on the INNER LIGHT.

The Hermit Tara Greene psychic tarot card reader

Saturn Retrograde @ 22 degrees SCORPIO makes a wide Trine to Mercury@ 17 degrees  and Chiron at 15 degrees PISCES. Indicating there is an awesome time to go deep within your SHADOW-that’s SCORPIO territory and access great compassion, healing and forgiveness.

VENUS @ 23 degrees AQUARIUS is almost exactly Squaring SATURN Things are tense in Love land right now, Venus in Aquarius allows clarity through detachment.

VENUS opposes ATHENA @ 25 degrees LEO to bring wisdom in the night through your dreams. Use Athena’s wise owl to trust your intuition. Get your detachment in now while you can,Venus will enter PISCES on April 5. 

PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR DREAMS. YES many of us may not be sleeping well, like moi the real night owl up late every night writing,writing obsessively here for you.
