George Michael, legendary popstar and sex symbol tragically died on Christmas Day of heart failure. He left behind loved ones and millions of fans heartbroken over the sudden loss of their favorite music star. What do the stars reveal in George Michael’s Astrology Chart, what aspects in his life pushed him into the spotlight and to an early death? Astrochicks gives fans an inside cosmic look into the superstar’s life, love and circumstances behind his tragic death.
George Michael was born on June 25, 1963, in London. His father, Kyriacos Panayiotou, a Greek restauranteur; emigrated to England in the 1950s. His beloved Mother Lesley Angold was an English dancer.
Born under the Zodiac Sign of sensitive Cancer, he was raised in a loving family but had a troubled relationship with his Father, but adored his Mother who passed away in 1997.
Fate tapped George Michael on the shoulder when he met his friend and bandmate, Ridgeley an eccentric Aquarius at Bushey Meads School. Together, they performed in a short-lived ska band called The Executive, that later evolved into the favorite pop band, WHAM! The stars collided, and they both skyrocketed to fame in 1981 and became an overnight sensation.
Michael’s Moon in Leo pushed him to be the center of attention in WHAM! He channeled his creative energy to sing, compose and produce all their music. Too much pride and ego can be Leo Moon’s downfall. It can make one controlling and domineering and eventually led to the breakup of the band.
His Mercury & Venus shined in wickedly smart Gemini squared by his Mars in perfectionist Virgo. George Michael was massively talented, but at the same time, his Astrology Chart reveals that he was deeply insecure and conflicted about his sexuality. Add his obsessive and compulsive Mars in Virgo would make him an emotionally conflicted guy.
In a 1999 interview with The Advocate, Michael told the Editor in Chief, Judy Wieder, that it was “falling in love with a man that ended his conflict over bisexuality.” “I never had a moral problem with being gay,” Michael told her. “I thought I had fallen in love with a woman a couple of times. Then I fell in love with a man, and realized that none of those things had been love.”
Although George Michael did not have kids, he did have a godson named James Kennedy an Aquarius, who’s one of the reality stars on Vanderpump Rules. Kennedy’s father and George’s father grew up together in Greece and Michael was given the honor of being his Godfather.
Over the years, George Michael has struggled with depression, drug addiction, and personal relationship problems. It was later fueled and compounded by the death of his lovely Mother in 1997. Close family friends stated he never recovered from her loss and used sex & drugs to feed his emotions.
On Christmas Day, George Michael’s lover and long-term partner, Fadi Fawaz, found him dead at his Oxfordshire mansion. What happened to pop-star and what do the stars reveal in his Astrology Chart?
Astrologically speaking, Saturn in freedom-loving Sagittarius opposed his Mercury & Venus in curious Gemini on Christmas Day. This challenging aspect could create depression, make one feel misunderstood and leave a person in a constant state of emotional turmoil. On a deeper level, it shows a desire for a more spiritual connection with others and that he would have been tired of living a superficial life. In the end, death gave him the ultimate freedom to move on.
George Michael, the iconic singer & songwriter of Careless Whisper, Last Christmas, Freedom, Father Figure, and One More Time. I will be not only remembered for his beautiful songs and heartfelt lyrics but his kind and generous soul. His funeral and memorial will be held later his month, may he rest in peace.
