Chart of Mama Cass Elliot
Cass Elliot was one of the Mamas & Papas and she died too soon, probably due to dieting or eating disorder she had a heart attack. She had a beautiful thrilling voice and we can see that in her chart: Uranus (thrilling) in Gemini (communication) and Uranus is the ruler of the Midheaven (the career). Venus, Jupiter and Pluto were aspecting the midpoint of motivation: Sun/Moon. It is the combination for big money and a lot of love. Notice the semi square between Jupiter and Pluto, indicating the wasted energy in that field. With Sun conjunct Neptune and trine Saturn ruler of the 8th house in the equal house system, there was a certain risk for illnesses and early swift death, related to nutrition (Ceres is in the 8th house!). In the year 1974 her progressed Sun was in the final degree of Libra and about to make an inconjunction with URanus, progressed ruler 8 in the equal house system. Also, the tighest aspect in her chart is the square between Venus in the sixth house of diet with Pluto, reflecting the price you pay for beauty and pleasure. More about aspects between Venus and Pluto on my site Astromarkt...
For the artist we seee that Neptune is rising before the Sun in a tight conjunction with the Sun. The Moon (unaspected!) is inconjunct Midheaven, Neptune is sesquisquare and Venus is square Midheaven. But there is no connection between them (though there is a 15d distance between Moon and Neptune). It is like if there is no such need for ideal beauty or pleasure, but that it is the career related to beauty and pleasure and sweet dreams.
Cass Elliot was a big woman and food killed her. I think that Ceres is the key, because Ceres is in the eight house, inconjunct Saturn and square Sun-Neptune. The combination of Sun-Saturn-Neptune is the combination of being ill or sick. Ceres is the symbol of nutrition (and genes). Something was wrong and Uranus on the Ascendant is a perfect way to express that her presentation (looks) was just as special as her voice was. Uranus is not making aspects in sign or orb 5 degrees, so that Uranus is 'calling', making her special at any possible level, anyhow!
On YouTube they have a clip of one of the best songs of the Mamas and the Papas: Safe in my garden, that you can hear here...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-chvVBrqwOc
