Chart of Rik Mayall

At the age of 56 years the man who made me laugh so often, Rik Mayall, suddenly died on June 9, 2014. It is still unclear what was the cause of death.

Rik Mayall was born on March 7, 1958 in Harlow (UK) at 3.30 a.m. (says Astrodatabank). That gives him a chart with a clear pattern of artistic talent*). Look at the charts below and what you see is:

- Venus trine the elevated Moon in Libra and
- Venus square Neptune
- Venus square Midheaven
- Neptune on Midheaven

This  in combination with the Pisces Sun in the second house of public performance. Also watch the creative (bi)quintiles of Sun and controversial Uranus with Ascendant..joined by Jupiter and Neptune for the fans.

Rik Mayall worked hard to gain his status. Saturn is 'calling' (no major aspects in sign or orb 5 degrees) and highlighted (square Sun/Moon midpoint) as an indication of ambition, all that is 'official' and serious, and of the importance of parents (and parenthood), business, management and duty. His parents taught drama and he studied drama at the University of Manchester.  Saturn is for classics...

It's rarely enough to have talent and ambition. Rik Mayall had Sun sesquisquare Jupiter and quatronovile Pluto (a combination for self confidence and success). The Venus-Jupiter-Neptune aspect combination is a key to popularity.

The transits and progressions at the time of the serious quad bike accident of 1998 were rather clear about injuries. See transit Saturn square Mars (dead end) and transit Chiron inconjunct P IC on that day. Transit Mars (not visible in the picture) was conjunct Progressed Sun.

There are only a few transits and progressions on the day of his death
1. Transit Saturn semi square Ascendant for a frustrating delay or end.
2. Transit Mars inconjunct progressed Sun (Mars was in the 12d of Libra that day) for an attack with a loss or imbalance involved.
3. Transit Uranus semi sextile natal Sun (a shock or surprise)
That is a trio for an unexpected dead end (but not always!).

(The progressed Sun had already been perfecting a sesquisquare with Saturn 4 months earlier).

Just like on the day of the accident there was a transit of Mars with Progressed Sun. In 1998 - accident - it was a conjunction. In 2014 - when he died - it was an inconjunction.

The pattern consists of aspects between Moon, Venus, Neptune and Midheaven, often related to the signs Taurus, Cancer, Libra and Pisces, More examples of artistic talent on Art&Astrology.
