Part 3: After It Happened

Lori photo-1

We need to keep in mind the circumstances of Lori’s life before and immediately following her accident.  We can post her advanced chart again as a reference tool.


n/Neptune was in her natal 4th house.  We learned that Lori had married twice, both husbands were alcoholics.  The recent Lunar eclipse very near n/Mars (square her Neptune) opposed n/Moon and n/N.Node was a message that it was time (Moon) to act (Mars) concerning her present husband.  This pattern seemed also to relate to her accident; a drunk driver attacked (ran into her). leaving her unconscious (Neptune) during which time she visited (associations, unions) her beloved, deceased grandmother (spiritual, other world Neptune).  The t/Moon-n/Part of Fortune and the t/PoF-n/Asc. combined to trigger these events.  The earlier Solar eclipse near the n/Asc was also likely a major influence in terms of sensitizing Lori to fully experience the full impact of Sun, Moon, Part of Fortune (Moon-expressing-the-Sun, male-female) symbolism.

So, how did Lori’s life change after this seemingly tragic event?  Lori regained consciousness shortly after the accident while in the hospital.  Her parents were there.  Her ‘spiritual’ visit with her grandparents, the decision to return to the physical world, the retained memory of her visit gave her much to think about.  A short time later she divorced her husband, became more spiritually aligned in her thoughts and outlook on life.  Music became a bigger factor in her life (Neptune).  She became involved in gospel and religious musical groups.  The lead photo shows her at the keyboard — she plays with a band.  Lori also wrote a book, using her dog as the foil for illustrating her belief system and the experience and application of life[s many lessons.

As I write this, I am on vacation on Cape Cod.  The internet service is slow, my ten year old laptop is even slower.  I have much more material on Lori’s story but I cannot presently retrieve it.  As it is, it has taken me almost two hours to put this posting together.  It will likely be several days before I can successfully post again.  Dave
