Pop Astrology: Michael Jackson
Michael Jackson's Astrology Chart

Michael Jackson passed away on Thursday, June 25, 2009. He collapsed and died in his home where the paramedics were unable to revive him. Strangely, there was also a doctor in the house and, at this time, the apparent cause of death might have been a drug overdose. Jackson has been in a wheelchair for two years and it is not surprising that he might have been taking painkillers for his skeletal problems.

The seventh child in the Jackson family, Michael debuted on the professional music scene as a member of The Jackson 5. His solo career began in 1971. For decades, he was known as the "King of Pop.” Four of his solo studio albums are among the world's best-selling records: Off the Wall (1979), Bad (1987), Dangerous (1991) and HIStory (1995). His 1982 Thriller album is the world's best-selling record of all time.

There is no time of birth for Michael Jackson, so it is estimated at noon as is the tradition when this important astrological information is not known. His actual birthdate was August 29th, 1958 and he was born into the famous performing Jackson family in Gary, Indiana. Looking at his chart, one sees a life filled with unusual astrological stressors including very difficult conjunctions with the Sun and Pluto.

Michael’s life has always been a little unusual, which is explained by the fact that he has a conjunction of the Sun in Virgo to Pluto. This is a difficult planetary combination to say the least. Pluto is the God of personal transformation and the Sun symbolizes the Self.  Virgo is the sign of the perfectionist and, in his own eyes, he was never perfect. He was always trying to create a new persona to replace the last one.

The Sun is also symbolic of the father and it is well known that Joseph Jackson was quite ruthless and critical when it came to molding the young Micheal Jackson into a star. Conversely, Michael was very criticized as a father figure himself, for doing things like dangling his own child at the window. Allegations of child abuse at his home In Neverland also haunted the star’s life, adding to his notoriety and reputation as an eccentric.

This charismatic star had Venus in Leo who means great fame and also riches. No matter what his fans seemed to always love him, despite charges of child abuse. His Venus is also conjunct Uranus which denotes androgyny.  His appearance at times certainly was both male and female; he was thin and his face had an almost Barbie like feminine appearance by the end of his life.

Chiron the wounded healer planet was is in opposition to both these planets in his natal chart which usually means a difficult childhood.  Chiron is currently in Aquarius and Jackson’s natal Chiron was also there at the same time.

Chiron in opposition to Venus can mean a person who is never satisfied with his or her appearance. It might also explain why he seemed so addicted to plastic surgery.  He was also the eternal wounded child in some ways and that explains Neverland – the bizarre eternal nursery and amusement park that he called home for many years.  It can also indicate a person who was constantly criticized and scrutinized in general. That could certainly be said to be true of Jackson’s relationship with the media who were always looking to exploit his eccentricities.

These planets also form a square to Mars in his chart, which describes a person who is constantly at war with himself. He was a very defensive individual who had a great deal of difficulty expressing himself to the public and setting appropriate boundaries.

He was also a very delicate and sensitive person, as indicated by a Moon in Pisces. This is a very sensitive placement that indicates tremendous creativity. This moon is squared by Saturn, which means that no matter how rich he got or successful, Jackson always had to work very hard. It also indicates a very lonely individual who felt misunderstood.

Chiron would be a force to contend with in Michael’s chart and, at age 50, it returned. Usually this produces some kind of emotional or physical crisis that forces people to seek healing. However, in Jackson’s case, the healing crisis seems to be his actual death and the liberation of his soul from his body.

It is no secret that Jackson had many emotional and physical problems. Among them was a back problem. This is classic with individuals with an ill placed Saturn. When he died, Saturn was transiting his birth chart. Also, Mars was transiting his natal Mars and this could have caused a physical reaction.

Even stranger, both transiting Neptune and Jupiter were within a two degree orb of his natal Mercury, which sometimes also means sudden death in astrology. Drugs for back pain are believed to be involved in his death, which is not surprising when Neptune is an influence. Neptune often symbolizes great stress.

When Jupiter transits the natal Jupiter, it sometimes means the liberation of the soul from the body. The upside is that this meant being freed from a life that was very painful physically, emotionally and legally over the past few years.

hmm...I posted a comment (3rd one to be exact) last night after receiving this e-mail and stated what a terrible COMMENTARY this was. It is opinionated, inaccurate and negative. I mentioned that if you wanted to read an educated and knowlegable report to go to and read their informative report. I was surprised (or not) to see my post is not even here anymore when I checked back in to see other's comments. Seems someone at does check these things. At any rate, Michael Jackson deserves respect and love no matter what, because none of us is perfect!! As for this site, without Sylvia it lacks a lot!!

Hi everyone. Whether this article is accurate or not, (I too notice many discrepancies and typos) there is onething that is absolutly true. Michael was and will always be an amazing individual. He has joined the world together with his music, far more than any other person or thing in the world. He has left us the gifts of his music and memory. Thank you, Michael. Peace be with you and your family.

The interpretation of what happened to Michael Jackson is much simpler. A cursory glance at his natal chart (Virgo Sun) which has Libra rising explains the matter with more clarity. First, Mercury, Venus and Mars are all transiting his Taurus-ruled 8th house of death. (Mars is in its detriment in Taurus in his natal chart and the placement's problems are compounded by Mars transiting this house.) It shows that Michael's death was related to singing and the resulting occupational hazards -- rejection, negative publicity, conflicts, battles, dangerous situations and the need to work sick or well. In addition, it would involve economic and business pressures, as well as disputatious legal actions. Mercury there suggests repiratory problems, while Mars reveals sudden death -- potentially accidental and/or related to the vascular system. He may have also been hypoglycemic which could have caused dreadful fits of temper, and other reactions ranging from light headedness or dizziness to complete loss of consciousness. According to research, hypoglycemia has been responsible for many undiagnosed disabilities. Along with depression -- which weakens the immune system, it could be one of the contributing factors to Michael's having been in a wheel chair for two years, if, indeed, that is true. Apparently, hypoglycemia is not easily detected by traditional tests. Second, it is important to look at his Virgo/Mercury ruled 6th House which is also governed by Pisces. in his chart. Neptune, Pisces ruler, works insidiously, subtly and unseen, causing disintegration that is unrecognized until considerable damage is done. (Remember, hypoglycemia is not esaily diagnosed.) Neptune also rules drugs, in his case, prescription drugs taken for health reasons. However, this does not mean that the drugs actually caused his demise. But, their remnants could have been deposited as toxins in his intestinal pockets unbeknownst to him and his physicians, blocking energy, especailly mental energy or energy to his brain. Michael should have paid particular attention to any headaches and other problems with his head, even minor ones. His transiting Uranus is in this house too. This points to a sudden health event relating to the heart by reflex action from Leo and circulation and back problems, among other things. A perfectionist, Uranus here shows that he was driving himself mercilessly far beyond his physical strength. Any chronic illness from which he was suffering would have been a major source of frustration, irritation and impatience, depleting his energies even more. In addition, the combination Uranus/Neptune shows that Michael had a premonition about his heart (possibly his death) and this is why he demanded a cardiologist that he trusted be with him at all times. As we know, Michael, a Virgo, was always very health-conscious and weight-conscious -- to the point of anorexia -- which eventually causes, heart failure, among other things. (Remember the great singer, Karen Carpenter, who died from anorexia complication? Like Michael, she too was teased.) Finally, for this post, Michael has his Moon in Pisces. A humanitarian, he was very sensitive about his appearance and was deeply hurt by the cutting antagonism, severe criticisms and slings and arrows directed at him. His heart was broken long ago! According the Sasha Fenton, who did extensive research on Moon signs, a Pisces Moon "suffers from depleted energies, nervous ailments, blood disorders, possible heart trouble, allergies, skin allergies, migraine or athmatic problems," all of which it appears Michael experienced at some time or another. Chances are, on June 25, 2009, Michael Jackson was overwhelmed with work, illness and problems of all kinds and realized he had to let go. It was time for his initiation into the more lasting world of spirit and he had no choice but to "give up the ghost."

Pay attention everyone. This website for the most part as nothing to do with Sylvia Browne and what she believes to be true. It's made up of other people in life who know that we all believe what Sylvia tells us and they want us to believe what they are saying just as badly. Mind over matter!

Time Almanac, under People, gives Michael's birth date as August 29, 1958. Time is accurate in all its information. Peace and love to all Michael's friends, and family. Michael accomplished all he came to do. Peace and love to his Spirit.

We all join this website because of Sylvia, that is the only reason I look at it. We all have our charts to live then we go home, if we have learn anything from Sylvia this is it. That is what Mr Jackson did, he finish school and went home. Carol J

I, too, have always known that Michael Jackson's birthday was August 29, 1958, I remember it because my brother's birthday is also August 29. Don't know where August 25th came from?! Michael Jackson was 6 months older than myself and it just goes to show, you never know when your time will come. My heart goes out to his family. He was truly a magnificent human being and it showed in his music. - Sue-

I grew up when Michael was churning out hit after hit and changing music. He was AMAZING. His death is truly tragic, just as big as Elvis. He was a worldwide icon and someone who's music will endure on forever. Rest in peace, Michael. Thank you SpiritNow for this article. I enjoyed it.
