Jackass star dies in fiery crash: Mars active, I would think.
R.I.P. Ryan Dunn, red-haired reality television personality and daredevil best known for being a member of The Jackass Crew (June 11, 1977 – June 20, 2011). Born in Medina, Ohio, he died in a fiery car crash, drunk, his speed around 130 mph.
His natal Mars/Uranus opposition in fixed signs, Taur/Scor, suggests wild but channelled behavior. He'd been friends since childhood with collaborator Bam Margera. a manifestation of his Sun conjunct Jupiter in Gemini, the sign of the 3rd house of siblings, early learning, short journeys, and the lower mind. Dunn was overweight, jovial, excessive, talkative and, above all, publicly daring.
His Pluto, retrograde at 11° Libra, received the nearly exact Saturn transit at his death. An astrologer might have told Dunn to lay low during this transit; it's a long transit-end of October 2010 until beginning of August 2011. But people have a hard time curtailing longstanding behaviors for months at a time unless they're in jail or a hospital bed. With his fixed sign emphasis [Saturn, Venus, Mars, Chiron and Uranus] came a hard head. Financial and professional success as a daredevil and a risk taker reinforced risky behaviors.
His success, financial fortune and appeal lay in his exact[partile]conjunction in Taurus of Mars, Chiron and Venus at 4°. But tr. Jupiter neared that conj. by 1°. Followers of comedians might remember Chris Farley's chart with Jupiter, that planet of often deadly excess, exactly on his Asc. at birth. Too much of a good thing...
