Dale Winton’s unexpected death at 62 has brought an outpouring of regret and affection from the public and friends. A |UK daytime TV presenter and DJ, he was universally liked for his friendliness and self-deprecatingly jokey approach. Though he admitted to suffering from depression and had health issues in recent years.
Born 22 May 1955 Nottingham, England at 2 pm (time unverififed), his parents split when he was a child, his father dying when he was 13, and his actress mother committing suicide when he was 21. He had his Sun, Mercury, Mars spread out through Gemini – a sign often associated with light entertainment. With a lucky Jupiter Uranus in Cancer. His Mars Mercury were in a showbizzy trine to Neptune, sextiling onto an influential Pluto. Though his Pluto sextile Mars and square Saturn in Scorpio did point to a darker side to his temperament.
If the birth time is accurate then his Moon is unaspected. Geoffrey Dean (Recent Advances in Natal Astrology) found this to be traumatic psychologically since the Moon offers comfort and security and without integration in the chart the individual will be hyper-sensitive and extremely vulnerable at a feeling level.
