Death of Ed Koch

Ed Koch was the mayor who cured (the financial situation of) New York. It is in his chart like this:

Sun in Sagittarius in the 2nd house of money trine Chiron = cures 

Simple!

But there is more, of course.

  • There is the Moon in Cancer is 'calling' (not making any aspects in sign or orb 5 degrees). Cancer is economic:). He had the need (at any possible level) to economize and … to be popular. He was. He had Moon opposition Jupiter and Jupiter biquintile MC.
  • Just like most of the American president (and many politicians) there is a Mercury-Saturn-Pluto combinations  for political correct answers and strategic communications together with this Moon-Jupiter aspect.
  • The chart also contains Saturn in Scorpio for the thorough and bold manager who dares to cut expenses. Saturn rises before the Sun: duties first, the true manager.

Now he died. We see transits and progressions accompanying this moment:


  • transit Pholus inconjunct Mars
  • transit Pholus semi square Progressed MC
  • (transit Pholus square progressed Sun on his birthday)

Those two transits of Pholus refer to a frustrating point of no return with a loss of energy involved.


  • transit Saturn trine progressed Descendant can be seen as an easy way to go (saying goodbye)
  • transit Pluto conjunct Mercury means stress or difficult decisions/talks
  • transit Jupiter in 8, inconjunct progressed MC that is help and assistance accompanying loss. Jupiter could also have meant: a definitive journey, leaving something behind.
  • progressed Moon opposition Uranus for a memorable moment of excitement and change
  • transit Mars trine Ascendant, activity in relationships or in situation
  • Saturn had recently been on his progressed MC = step back in condition

For people of his age this might have been enough.

Thank you for the link. It is like 'calling' (except that I use 'calling' for planets without aspects within 5d orb and/or in sign. In this post: http://astropost.blogspot.nl/2008/04/calling-planets-or-planets-with-call.html
I refer to 'peregrine' and Tyl, too.
