Club of 27

7pm, Monday, 17th January 2005

Nick Kollerstrom will present an special two part evening looking at the charts of Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix, Brian Jones, Janis Joplin and Jim Morrison with the assistance of Alex Trenoweth, Andrew Morton, John Etherington, Laura Boomer and Neil Spencer.

These modern icons all died while at the same phase of their Uranus and Neptune cycles, their lives apparently measured out by thirty degrees of Neptune. Consider Nick's letter to The Mountain Astrologer in September 2004

Letter to Mountain Astrologer, Sept 2004

The Mountain Astrologer, Sept 2004

Dear Editor,

Children of Dionysus

Concerning the mysterious 'club of 27', viz. the brilliant musicians whose lives have burnt out, like meteors in the sky, by the time of their Uranus-trine return: Neptune has twice the orbit period of Uranus and thus makes its sextile-return (one-sixth of its orbit) near to the time when Uranus makes its trine return - about the age of 27 (for example, one would reach the Neptune opposition at 84 years, as Uranus makes its full-cycle return). Listed here are five rock stars who died at that youthful age, together with the orbs of these two return aspects: i.e., the degrees by which Uranus exceeded or fell short of making the trine - and likewise Neptune, its sextile - between their positions at each musician's birth and death.

Kurt Cobain Ur +3, Ne -1 (Feb. 20, 1967 - April 5, 1994)

Jimi Hendrix UR +6, NE -3 (Nov 27, 1942 - Sept. 18, 1970)

Brian Jones UR + 4, NE - 3 (Feb 28, 1942 - July 3, 1969)

Janis Joplin UR +8, NE -3 (Jan. 19, 1943 - Oct. 4, 1970)

Jim Morrison UR +3, NE -3 (Dec 8, 1943 - July 3, 1970)

We are startled to realise that these heroes all left the scene four or five degrees beyond their Uranus trine return - in each case, shortly after it had chimed - while each, without exception, died just before their Neptune sextile return - around three degrees before it had happened. This suggests that some interaction was taking place between the Neptune sextile returns and the Uranus trines - the latter having arrived slightly earlier, measuring out the destiny of these rock icons.

Their youthful lives did not get as far as their first Saturn return. Thus, the primary defining feature of the 'club of 27', in terms of lifespan, has been a Uranus-Neptune interaction - with the latter planet conferring the more exact period
