The tragic death of actress Brittany Murphy over the weekend came as a shock – she was only 32. The stunning Scorpio, who starred in such films as Clueless, Girl, Interrupted, 8-mile and Uptown Girls, had collapsed in a bathroom in the Los Angeles home she shared with her husband of two years. Paramedics were unable to revive her, and she was pronounced dead of cardiac arrest upon arrival at the hospital. What led to her death is still being investigated.
I’m always intrigued by the charts of people who die so young, wondering what they came into this life to accomplish, and why they departed so soon. Looking at Murphy’s chart, here’s what I discovered about her.
Born on November 10, 1977, she had multiple placements in Scorpio: Sun, Moon, Venus and Uranus. That’s a lot of power! She was driven, passionate and emotionally intense. Scorpio is the most concentrated sign – energetically – of the zodiac. It occurs to me that if you need to get a lot of living experience done in a very short time, having such an array of Scorpio influences will accomplish that.
As for her death, transiting Mars in Leo, which clashed with her Scorpio placements, had been putting a lot of pressure on her since about mid-October. Very stressful, both physically and emotionally. Still, whatever the cause of her death turns out to be, she fulfilled her destiny, in the short time she had on this earth.
