Nevermind Neptune

On this day in 1991, Nirvana’s debut album Nevermind was released, launching the original grunge rockers (particularly singer Kurt Cobain) to fame. The astrological poster child of a tortured artist and sensitive soul, Cobain’s Sun, Mercury and Venus were all in Neptune-ruled Pisces. This also may explain the almost mystical connection he had with fans. Yet it was no secret that he did not enjoy the spotlight. When he met his wife, Cortney Love (a Cancer), the increased emotional tides of their double Water sign relationship may have led to him drowning in his own emotions, which added to his addiction to drugs and eventual suicide in 1994. Many say he wrote the lyric “I wish I could eat your cancer when you turn black” about Love (“Heart-Shaped Box,” 1993).
