Luke Perry, died on March 4th of complications from a massive stroke he initially suffered on February 27th in Los Angeles. Perry was a teenage TV heart-throb to millions of Gen X’ers from the 1990’s hit TV show 90201 to the present where a whole new generation watched him portray Archie Andrew’s dad in the hit show Riverdale. Luke leaves behind two children.
I am not a Gen X’er I had heard of Luke Perry of course and has been watching him on Riverdale with my daughter Leah, 21, who is a big fan of the show.
Let’s look at who Luke Perry was from his Astrology Chart born October 11, 1966, with no accurate birth time I’ve placed his Sun on the MC for a famous person born in Ohio.
Luke Perry was a Libra with Venus the ruling planet of the sign conjunct his SUN conferring extra good Libra aspects. This brings good looks, charm, fairness, social graces, money and a need to connect with others. He always wanted to be popular and well liked.
The Chart is very simple, in some ways he wasn’t a complicated man.
Perry had a unique Moon Pluto Uranus conjunction in Virgo lets break it down.
Perry’s Moon in hard-working humble-an adjective used to describe him be everyone who knew him. He was a hard-working man. Very professional and always reliable to get the job done.
Moon conjunct Pluto in Virgo gave Luke staying power. He had to work for it but he would’ve been obsessive about anything he was doing. He put his Plutonian soul into his work. He was adaptable but needed to be in control. Making money and being tight with it may have been an issue with him.
MOON-PLUTO-URANUS opposite Saturn and Chiron and Lilith
This is the early 1960’s generational opposition which made the 60;s happening.
This would have made Luke an intuitively in touch with and a spokesperson for his generation. He would have acted as an anti-authoritarian for his generation. He may always have felt like a loner and played loner parts.
If the Sun was at noon then these planets form a T-square to a Sagittarius Ascendant. His appearance would be open, optimistic, easy going, honest and funny.
3 Planets in Scorpio
Mercury the planet of communications in broody intense Scorpio conjunct Perry’s South Node and Neptune
Perry could infuse intense passion and sexuality through his acting. He was obsessive about getting a character right. He put his soul into what he was trying to convey. Neptune is the planet which governs actors and Hollywood. South Node represents past lives, Perry would have been familiar with and drawn to being a creative spiritual person from a past life. had already been through an intensely emotional obsessive past life where he held power and may have abused it too. The Moon sextiles his South Node. There are some issues with his mother, and women in general in his life, connected to criticism, hard work, poverty, and struggle.
Perry had 2 planets in star-powered Leo, Jupiter the planet of expansion and luck at the 1st degree, and Mars the planet of drive, defenses, and action at the very last 29th degree of Leo which is conjunct to the Fixed Star Regulus. This aspect confers STAR status.
Perry’s North Node at 16 Taurus
This was Perry’s greatest path to soul growth through being stable, grounded, a rock, enjoying the sensual pleasures of the earth plane, he was rather hedonistic.
North Node is trined by his Moon-Pluto Uranus conjunction in Virgo and forms a Finger of God from a sextile to the Lilith Chiron Saturn in Pisces conjunction which points to his LIBRA SUN. He needed to express in a balanced way issues about fears of women’s power and felt a responsibility for the wounds. This may have come through very subtly as he was a sensitive intuitive Pisces and it may all have been repressed. Saturn in Pisces can block the intuition especially in men who are not told that being intuitive is a strong and positive trait to have.
90210 fame and the transits
When Beverly Hills 90210 premiered on October 4, 1990, Luke was a relative unknown. His trademark sideburns and good looks made him a huge teen heartthrob.
Transiting Saturn in Capricorn was squaring his LIBRA Sun-bringing him solid career building energy. see below. Neptune at 11 Capricorn was also squaring Perry’s Natal Venus in Libra bringing him fame and wealth.
PLUTO planet of the Soul, power, riches and wealth was exactly on Luke’s South Node in SCORPIO indicating a perfect karmic releasing as Pluto was the rocket fuel for his North Node in Taurus. Pluto was also fueling Perry’s Neptune in Scorpio planet of actors and Hollywood glamour and projection.
LUKE PERRY DEATH
Perry had a massive stroke on February 27 at his home in Los Angeles.
Strokes are connected to the Planet Uranus. They come on suddenly and cause havoc through irreparable damages or death.
Uranus had been in an exact trine to Perry’s Mars at 29 Leo for the last while. Leo rules the heart. A soft aspect like a trine doesn’t indicate an accident or death usually.
Jupiter the planet of expansion at 22 degrees Sagittarius squaring Perry’s natal Uranus at 21 Virgo. Virgo is the house of health. This would indicate a sudden chaotic health issue.
But the really major indicators of death is Saturn, Known as the Lord of karma. Saturn was exactly squaring Luke’s Sun at 17 degrees Capricorn/ Virgo.
Luke Perry’s death spawned an outpouring of grief from those who knew and worked with him and thousands of fans. He had a real warmth in his recent work as Archie’s dad in Riverdale. May he rest in peace.
