Elisabeth Kubler Ross, near death studies
Today is Elisabeth Kubler Ross's birthday (July 8, 1926). She was a pioneer in near-death studies. She was born with the Sun and the Node, which represents the public, at 16 Cancer conjunct Pluto at 14 Cancer. During her life, Pluto progressed slowly over her natal Sun position.
Some of her quotes:
"There are no mistakes, no coincidences. All events are blessings given to us to learn from."
"Learn to get in touch with the silence within yourself and know that everything in this life has a purpose."
"The ultimate lesson all of us have to learn is unconditional love, which includes not only others but ourselves as well."
If you Google her, you see people also Google David Kessler and Cicely Saunders.
David Kessler is one of the world's foremost experts on healing and love. Born on February 16, 1959, he has his Sun and Mercury (late Aqu) opposite Pluto (early Vir). By retrograde progression, Pluto has been tightening this opposition aspect during his life.
Cicely Saunders was born on June 22, 1918. She had her Sun at 0 Cancer conjunct Pluto at 4 Cancer. She founded the modern hospice movement.
She said, “You matter because you are you, and you matter to the end of your life. We will do all we can not only to help you die peacefully, but also to live until you die.”
For interest, Florence Nightingale (May 12, 1820) was born with Pluto at 28 Pisces which slowly progressed over her Node during her life at 29 Pisces. There are many more examples that I remember noticing over the years.
In South Africa, Gail and Sid Unsworth (born Sep, 5 1965 and Mar 4, 1965). Gail has Sun conjunct Pluto and Sid has Sun opposite Pluto.
Both of their mothers suffered from Alzheimer's. Together they founded and built up Graceland, a nursing home that specialises in caring for those living with Dementia and Alzheimer's.
Comments on Yahoo today to reassure you:
Hillbilly Patriot 8 hours ago My great aunt was married to the love of her life, a candy salesman in NY. Her wild younger sister took steps to break them up, planting evidence, so her sister could go with her on a trip. Despite his protestations of innocence, she divorced him choosing to believe her younger sister. My great aunt never married or dated anyone after her heartbreak. Many years later, as she lay dying, my mother and grandmother were with her when they heard her say very clearly, "Oh, Ed... it's been such a long time". And then she took her last breath.
