I take this time now to pause and stop talking about what the Stars saw about Prince. While I can be comforted by understanding there is a timing is everything tale to tell, there is a much more personal way I would like to remember this special soul who unknowingly helped me through a great deal in my personal life.
I grew up with parents who had wonderful taste in music, exposing me to plenty of 1960-80’s blues and rock and roll. Yet, Prince was someone I gravitated to on my very own. I remember my Mother gave me the album “Purple Rain” by 5th grade for Christmas and she said, “Don’t listen to the lyrics.”
Well, the natal Libra Moon I have in my own chart is all about the lyrics within a song, so of course, I didn’t listen to her. As the years went by, I gravitated to cassette tapes and eventual CDs and my Prince collection became more than extensive. His music always could allow me to feel a freedom that was not always easily reached due to my conservative upbringing.
I was definitely listening to the lyrics.
It wasn’t until my mid 30’s that a childhood memory of being sexually molested by a trusted family friend came back into my space to process and heal. Of course, astrology helped me a great deal at this time because any natal chart can clearly indicate if a person may experience such a tragic experience during their life.
What Prince’s music did on so many levels to help me heal my own wounds, can not be properly explained, nor given enough gratitude to. I have always said he channels such a healthy sense of sexuality- to not have to feel ashamed, dirty, shy nor embarrassed about this very, very natural human form of expression.
Yet when you are sexually abused as a young child and your subconscious buries it for your own protection for 30 years, it can really take a toll on a many outcomes and personal choices one can make as you experience life along the way.
Just a few days after Prince’s passing, I traveled from New York to New Orleans, (happily revisiting a 10 hour set of my Prince collection on the 1st leg out to West Virginia), and stopped in Atlanta on the way to see my dear friend, Rising Star Megan Hayes in a brilliant play appropriately titled Sex With Strangers. One of our many bonds is but of course, Prince.
That night after the stunning and thought provoking production from Horizon Theatre Company –which became an equal part of an intense healing process for me- I had a dream about Prince. It was one of those “clear as day” ones, which always are so fascinating to receive.
I was with friends from college at Prince’s house. We were all enjoying social time and one of them was kinds acting all too “star struck” and I said, “You know you just can’t do that, lol, this is Prince for God’s sake! Have some respect!”
The dream scene shifted to a restaurant. Prince and I were standing at the corner of an empty bar. He looked good and healthy, and he was definitely short as he is in real life. I told him my story and couldn’t thank him enough for what his music had done to truly console and help me navigate through some more than challenging feelings to become sexually open and healed in my life once again.
He didn’t say too much back, but almost like a maestro, his song ‘For the Tears in Your Eyes’ started playing in the background. Then he said, “You can dry your eyes now.” I simply gave him a great big hug.
Of course, I woke up crying, and absolutely amazed.
One thing is for sure. Love Never Dies.
With Everlasting Gratitude Prince. May you truly RIP.
For those who are interested, I share some brief words on how the Stars equally regard the ingenuity of Prince.
There is so much that astrology and numerology can do to help us all better process and understand the sudden passing of Prince, who transited in Spirit 21 April, 2016.
Yet, as we look to the energies composing 07 June 1958 –the day Prince took human form- it is extremely clear why he held his life off stage so private. In Spirit, this truly hasn’t changed.
07 Karmic Paths (including any 16th & 25th calendar birthdates as well) are not only known to potentially excel on the stage should they choose through singing, poetry, acting and dance- they carry a distinct mark of being observed as tactical loners. They always need necessary time throughout the evolution of their life to be spent in privacy when not shining in their innate intuitive light.
Most people are hearing much more about Prince since 21 April, which includes the absolute goodness he shared amongst those less fortunate from humans to animals behind the scenes. Whether it was part of his honoring of being a Jehovah Witness or not- it was deep within his 7 karmic path nature to keep his philanthropic deeds quiet.
This was never the glory he sought to be recognized for, but absolutely something his 36/9 Lifepath wished to do to help those in need as this numerology influence instinctively enjoys defending the underdog and being a pioneer. 36’s Chaldean Karmic Mystery is known as ‘The Sceptre’ and their torch will be carried very high, often following along a yellow brick road in life that promises a form of fame and celebrity.
Equally, as a Gemini Sun, Prince carried the energy of duality through this extremely intellectual air sign’s symbolism of The Twins. His musical genius that we saw on stage was quite different from the generous genius that choose to remain quiet when he was off of it.
As always, our full names at birth possess the uncanny ability to spell out the truth from the letters that compose them through the divination tool of Lexigrams and how ‘It’s All in the Name.‘ Our Prince, is no exception.
