Eclipses have been associated with the death of prominent people. Here we will see how the February 26 eclipse at Calcutta portends the death of a famous singer.
The eclipse is placed in the 5th house conjunct kappa Pegasi [9pi] in the Flying Horse’s forefoot. Among other things, the 5th house rules the arts and music .The Flying Horse Pegasus was beloved by the Muses because he created the Hippocrene Spring at Mount Helicon (where they sang and danced) by stamping his hoof upon a rock, producing a gush of water that was said to bring poetic inspiration. Diana Rosenberg notes that the stars of Pegasus are prominent in the charts of experts in folkore, mythology and music.
Notice that the eclipse is anchored through hard aspects to the Jupiter-Pluto-Mars-Uranus T-square. This is a violent combination linked to accidents. But more interesting is the fact that Mars and Uranus are conjunct the asteroid Phaethon which rules cars and other modes of transport so that it turns out to be a car accident in which the singer died.
