My daughter Leah, 15 woke me up yesterday crying because Cory Monteith, 31, had suddenly passed away yesterday July 13 in a Vancouver Hotel room. Like millions of other Glee fans who’ve watched since 2009, Cory Monteith, who played football hunk, Glee singer and drummer Finn Hudson, was a huge fave. Rocketing to fame after the first season, he graced the covers of Vanity Fair along with co-star and real life fiancée Lea Michele. Having never really sung before his renditions of old pop favorites which made him a multi million selling pop star. Sounds pretty lucky.
The handsome 6′ 3 ” Monteith was raised in Calgary. His parents divorced when he was 7 and he was raised by his Mom in Vancouver with an older brother. He started using drugs and alcohol at 13. He dropped out of High school at 16 and got into petty crimes. He went to rehab at 19 when his Mother and others intervened. He said ‘ I am lucky to be alive.” He started acting after rehab. He found great success and real life love with fellow GLEE star Lea Michelle, they were engaged and apparently planning to marry in two weeks. He had recently checked into rehab again in March of this year. He was found dead in his hotel room on July 13 after failing to check out and apparently had died a few hours before. No drug evidence was found so the news said, but an autopsy is scheduled shortly to find out the cause of death. Fans and friends world-wide poured out their shock and grief immediately with Tweets . Condolences to Cory’s family, Lea Michelle and all the Glee crew. Cory, may your soul rise to the Light.
Let’s look at his Astrology chart to find our exactly who Cory was.
Cory was born May 11 1982 in Calgary Canada, I have no exact birth time, so use Noon for a public figure.
An earthy, sensual, down to earth Taurus with Wounded healer CHIRON conjunct to his SUN. Right away this points to someone who physically experiences vulnerability and pain. His task is to bring that pain to Light or not.
The noon chart gives him a LEO Ascendant which is perfect for a StAR, a performer, a charismatic, person.
Looking at this chart I’d have to say I believe he was born earlier, and that the MOON would be in the latter degrees of Sagittarius conjunct the planet of actors, addictions, compassionate idealists, Neptune.
This would place Cory’s Moon, symbolizing his mother and the unconscious, on the Galactic Center, a very higher consciousness focussed place which often makes people feel connected to a higher teaching but feel very alienated on the earth plane.
With Neptune conjunct the Moon in Sagittarius, Corey was a very sensitive, psychic, compassionate, dreamer and easily susceptible to alcohol and drug abuse. Sagittarius is the sign of the teacher, philosopher, jock, travellers, people who relate on an International level. Moon in Sagittarius peeps are very affable, easy-going, laid back, good-humoured, promise more than they can deliver. They are often self- taught, although always hungry to learn.
Mercury in GEMINI is in its home sign, and Cory was younger looking, he was playing a teenager when he was in his late 20’s. This is the sign of the twin personality, dual natured, charming, talkative, a trickster personality. Mercury is opposite Uranus in Sagittarius making Cory susceptible to radical changes of mind, ambivalent and very highly wired, and tuned like a racing car, easy for him to get “strung out.” He was a unique individual, who marched to his own drummer, very bright, Uranus was Retrograde in his natal chart, a karmic sign.
Cory was born with Venus in Aries, and Venus rules charm, money, relationships, independence, anger, defenses. He would have been attracted to strong independent, self- made women. Venus in Aries brings spontaneity into love affairs, and anything they desire, they just simply jump and forget to look before they leap. Venus in Aries peeps tend to live fast and dangerously, they crave speed and excitement. He knew what he wanted instantly and went for it.
Born with Mars at Zero degrees Libra RETROGRADE opposite Venus and square to the Moon. This T- square is the basic focal point of his entire life.
Cory had a LOT OF RETROGRADE planets in his Natal chart, MARS, JUPITER, SATURN, URANUS, NEPTUNE & PLUTO. This is a hallmark of everyone born during the same time period.
Retrograde planets indicate KARMIC past life lessons that weren’t learned, so the individual comes back to the present life to try to finish what was left undone from previous lifetimes and with the same individuals. Mars in Libra is weak and uncertain and needs relationships. He had a very soft side to him. Cory’s deepest emotional relationships, especially with his Mom, the Moon, and Lea Michele, symbolized by Venus in Aries were definitely karmic. I believe he said they looked at each other and instantly recognized the other. That is a “soul mate” aspect.
JUPITER is Retro in Scorpio, so Cory had a seriously large shadow. Scorpio is the sign of birth and death regeneration, sex, power, money, secrets, obsessions, the Unconscious. He had raw huge appetites and his shadow or demons ran him most likely.
SATURN at 16 degrees Libra Retrograde is again especially Karmic. Repeating relationships, very charming, appearing nice, the go-between, the ambassador, Mr. Nice Guy. Cory was born during the major divorce era and the divorce of his parents at a young age may have been one of the causes of his drug use.
URANUS is at 3 degrees Sagittarius a person who will radicalize education, Interesting that his TV show Glee was about high school students learning interpersonal and creative coping skills through singing. This is a generational aspect.
NEPTUNE at 26 degrees SAGITTARIUS, on the G.C. and conjunct LILITH!
Lilith is the “demoness” the shadow feminine, the untamed wild psyche aspect. This alone could have well contributed to his drug and addiction problems. I believe he had major insecurity and abandonment issues.
PLUTO in Libra Retrograde again a Generational aspect. Pluto in Libra is caught in a karmic web of relationship needs, secrets, control, shadow material, haunted by insecurities.
Cory’s North Node at 14 degrees Cancer
is exactly conjunct the U.S. Sun so no wonder the Canadian star made a huge success in the U.S.
This is also the degree of Sirius the large star the Egyptians worshipped as OSIRUS the God of death and rebirth. Jesus’s story was patterned after Osirus’s archetypal story. So Cory was meant to learn through this archetype. In Cancer,its all about family, love, emotional security was what he needed to develop.
The South Node in Capricorn indicates that he had been a man of substance, power, wordly success in a past life. Someone who was “all business” and had a serious desire for success and fame nature. We all tend to be attracted to what we did in the past.
ON THE DAY HE DIED
WOW the transits are exact and VERY stressful.
MARS at the critical 29th degree of GEMINI conjunct the North Star is directly opposite Cory’s Natal Neptune and his Moon. Mars in Gemini is impulsive, perhaps Cory had a bi-polar problem? The Mars Neptune conjunction certainly suggests a drug overdose and connected to the Moon through an unconscious neediness, a hole in his emotional body that craved being filled.
Jupiter in early Cancer is square to his Natal Venus in Aries again, risk taking and leaping before looking.
URANUS the planet of sudden change, chaos, revolution, in ARIES at 12 degrees was exactly square to his North and South nodes and moving slow. This is a Super karmic aspect. It’s like being hit by lightning. So whether the lightning was a needle or a heart attack will be known soon. Uranus is also Opposite Corey’s natal Saturn in Libra indicating disruptive catalytic energy, a system overload or meltdown.
SATURN having just turned direct on July 8 had been hovering right on Cory’s Jupiter in Scorpio. Saturn is always a fated, karmic, the grim reaper. Sounds like Cory took a gamble and lost.
PLUTO is also in a Square aspect to Cory’s Nodes, again a very karmic birth and death, life changing pressure. Tis is a choice to unconsciously choose life or death, growth in the physical or transcending into the eternal realms to learn and grow from those planes.
At noon Cory’s Ascendant at 14 degrees Leo is being exactly Squared by the transiting North and South Nodes. This is a fated aspect.
To everyone who knew him they said he was a genuine and sweet man. It greatly saddened many for his life to end so tragically so young. I feel for his girlfriend Lea Michelle as well as his family.
