Paris Jackson's Mars conjunct Saturn
Someone pointed at the post on Astrologie Blogo about the natal chart of Paris Jackson. I wanted to see if there was some indication what happened to her.
First look at the solar return chart with Saturn (symbol of the father, symbol of farewells, too) conjunct Midheaven opposition Mars. That is the same combination (Mars-Saturn) that occurred in the chart of Michael Jackson at the time of his untimely death. See the post about the transits at that time...
Why do the transits and progression and solar return chart have such a strong effect in her life? It is because in her natal chart we also see Mars conjunct Saturn (ruler 10). Again Mars-Saturn, again the reflection of the importance of energies ending and of death in her life. The death of the man who raised and protected her will of course be very influential. Even more, because Paris Jackson has Moon in Cancer (a need to belong).
Another indication for the importance of death in this year is the progressed Jupiter (ruler of the progressed 8th house AND the natal 8th house) exactly opposition transit Saturn (ruler of the 10th house, a parential house) at the moment of her father's death. In other words: transit Saturn conjunct progressed ruler 8th house: death (8) of a parent (Saturn).
MIDHEAVEN CHANGING SIGN
One of the indications of change is the changing sign of the MC in progression. Paris' Midheaven changed sign now that her position in life (and in the family) change into that of an orphan. The first aspect that the Midheaven will make in progression is a conjunction with Neptune, the planet of being lonely, deserted and isolated. There is another effect of the MC conjunct Neptune. That is becoming conscious of the unrevealed spiritual world and the world of music, arts and religion. Neptune is important in her chart and so is mystery, if only about her biological parents. Perhaps that is why she was born with the Sun and Mercury conjunct Ceres, the symbol of the roots and the genes. An important, calling Neptune on top, together with Moon in Cancer sesquisquare Venus and Venus square Sun/Moon tell me that she at least was influenced by her father, the artist. Also Michael Jackson's Uranus was exactly trine the natal Sun of his daughter. He was very special in her life, a source of inspiration.
The charts that tell us 3 times about the situation in this year reveal the theme of death (Mars-Saturn) and the timing (Saturn) of death (Jupiter, ruler 8).
There are more interesting observations regarding her natal chart, such as the quintile between the Sun in the 12th house and the unaspected Neptune on top for a creative way to lead a double life (or to live the discrete way) to the max. It is also, together with the other indications in her chart, the combination for creative talent*) (as an actor perhaps). Who knows...
