Keith Emerson – a creative mix of dark and light

Keith Emerson, keyboard player and co-founder of the progressive rock group Emerson, Lake and Palmer has died, of perhaps self-inflicted gunshot injuries, having been suffering recently from ill health.

Born 2 Nov 1944 10.15pm Todmorden, England, he has another of those charts (see Conroy and Lula following) which are half eye-blinkingly difficult and the other half quite cheerful.  He had a 4th house Sun Mars in Scorpio square Pluto, trine a 12th house Saturn. And a lighter, livelier T Square of Venus in Sagittarius in the performing 5th opposition Moon Uranus in Gemini square Jupiter in Virgo.

His father was ex-military and encouraged him as a child to pursue his musical interests which included classical piano. He was flamboyant and wild on stage but was described as highly creative and a ‘gentle soul’.  His chart is replete with quintiles and septiles, so strong creative 5th and 7th Harmonic charts.

He’d have a fair few demons inside which he clearly kept hidden with Sun Mars and Saturn being in hidden, Water houses.
