Biography: Kurt Cobain
Kurt Cobain was born on February 20, 1967 in Aberdeen, Washington. He was most known for being the frontman of the Grunge band Nirvana and was the band’s guitarist, lead vocalist, and primary songwriter. It was certainly his angst-fueled songwriting and anti-establishment persona that allowed Cobain’s compositions to widen the thematic conventions of contemporary rock music. He was often referred to as a spokesman of Generation X and is now championed as perhaps the most influential musician in the history of alternative rock.
In 1987 the original lineup of the now-famous band Nirvana consisted of, Cobain as frontman, Krist Novoselic on bass, and Aaron Burckhard on drums. They quickly established themselves as part of the blooming Seattle music scene which later came to be called grunge. After signing with major label DGC Records, and a change of drummer, Nirvana found global success in 1991 with the record “Smells Like Teen Spirit” from their critically acclaimed second album Nevermind.
Surprisingly Cobain was unhappy at being hailed the voice of his generation, which he was following Nirvana’s sudden success. This is because he believed his message had been misunderstood by the public. Not only did Cobain write “Smells Like Teen Spirit”, but he also wrote many other notable songs for Nirvana, including “Come as You Are”, “Lithium”, “In Bloom”, “Something in the Way”, “Heart-Shaped Box”, “All Apologies”, “About a Girl”, “Aneurysm” and “You Know You’re Right”.
The last years of his life, would be dominated by a struggle with heroin addiction and also chronic health problems including depression. Kurt Cobain didn’t adapy well to fame, and this wasn’t aided by a tumultuous relationship with his wife, the musician Courtney Love. In March 1994, Cobain an overdose on a mix of champagne and Rohypnol led to a detox program, brought about by an intervention. On April 8, 1994, a 27-year old Cobain was discovered dead at his home in Seattle. A single shotgun headwound gave police the evidence they needed to declare suicide.
In 2014, all members of Nirvana were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Rolling Stone included Cobain in its lists of the 100 Greatest Songwriters of All Time, 100 Greatest Guitarists, and 100 Greatest Singers of All Time. He was ranked 7th by MTV in the “22 Greatest Voices in Music”.

Natal chart interpretation
Note: The following birth chart interpretation is for entertainment only and should not be viewed as a criticism or attack on the subject of the study. No offense is intended and no slight to character is meant.
SUN ON AQUARIUS-PISCES CUSP
He was born at a time when the Sun was about to move from one sign into the next–or had just done so. The astrological term for this is that he was “born on the cusp”, or that he was a “Cusp Baby”. The sign that the Sun was actually in at the time of his birth will always be his true Sun-sign, and its imprint upon his personality is usually the more dominant.
However, planetary influences do not change immediately like turning one light off and another one on. The transition is more gradual, as the influences of the sign the Sun is leaving diminish while the influences of the new sign increase.
We call that period of time the “Orb of influence” and for the cusp interpretation of the Sun-sign change, we use the span within the last three degrees of the sign which the Sun is leaving and the first three degrees of the sign it is moving into. The Sun moves through the signs at approximately one degree per day, so the total transition period we use is approximately six days.
The easiest way to interpret the Sun on the “cusp” would perhaps be to consolidate and intermix indiscriminately all the influences of both signs and print out a conglomerate of “one fits all”. Since this IS a transition period, such an interpretation would not fit everyone, and would create the risk of not portraying his true personality or individuality.
Consequently, he will need to use some self analysis in order to get the best of this section. We will print the dominant influences of both Sun-signs: first the sign the Sun is leaving and next the sign it is entering into. Remember, as the Sun moves further into the emerging sign, the stronger Kurt Cobain is likely to recognize that Sun-sign’s imprint upon his personality.
In Aquarius the Sun gives him a quiet, patient, determined, unobtrusive, and faithful nature. There is no affectation or snobbery in his personality, for he dislikes imitation and hypocrisy in any form. He operates as an equal among equals, but he sometimes feels that others are unreceptive to him or that they are incapable of comprehending his ideas. He can become annoyed when people fail to understand him. He can be determined and stubborn and may even appear eccentric to others.
His interests and pursuits are more intellectual than physical, and Kurt Cobain is not likely to be very sports-minded. He may long for material possessions, but Kurt Cobain is never greedy. He loves the beauties of nature, but he likes to admire them in comfort. He should be aware of a tendency to exaggerate his problems, as this could shadow his brightness and charm which are the attributes that make the most attractive.
He does his best work when pursuing an ideal in which his excellent memory, creativity, knowledge, love of freedom, and humanitarianism can find their outlet. He can appear to be a tireless worker, but his appearance of calm can be deceptive. He takes work very seriously, so nervous tensions and apprehensions may seldom leave him. He is most comfortable when working within an organization and in group activities. His interest and sympathy for human problems win the respect and confidence of those around him.
He will insist upon living his own life as he sees fit, even if that means ignoring convention and tradition. In personal relationships he cannot be owned or possessed, and while Kurt Cobain is willing to share himself with another, he does not always adjust easily to the emotional give and take of a close relationship.
He gets honest enjoyment from meeting new people and exchanging ideas. He may be anything or nothing, but Kurt Cobain is never lonely–his group instinct will always direct him to where the people are, or else they will come to him. He has friends of both sexes and sees no reason for giving them up, even after marriage.
He is forward-looking and progressive, and he harbors great hopes for the future. He stays up-to-date on current affairs, and responds to contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style and in terms of ideas. As we enter the “Aquarian Age”, the ideals of his Aquarius Sun-sign personality will provide the inspiration and guidelines for the unification and regeneration of our planet, World, through a better understanding and application of universal love.
He is fair, intelligent, objective and rational, and he often lets his head rule rather than his heart. He may appear self-sufficient and emotionally detached because Kurt Cobain is capable of putting aside his personal feelings and viewing things dispassionately. Consequently, when he makes up his mind on an issue, he can be quite determined and difficult to change.
The Sun in Pisces generally provides a kind and loving nature: confiding, honest, amiable, sympathetic, and especially kind to dumb animals or people in distress. He is neat, particular and a lover of order and routine. He is modest and often timid, and could be lacking in self-confidence. As a rule, Pisceans are methodical and logical in their conclusions: idealistic, imaginative, inspirational. They are often gifted with mediumistic faculties and are usually fond of secret, occult or psychic investigation.
He may unconsciously absorb the ideas and mental outlook of those around him. He is easily influenced by external factors, and even though he desperately wants to do the right thing at all times, his willpower may be easily overcome. The symbol for Pisces is two attached fishes swimming in opposite directions, which signifies the drastic duality of emotions of persons born under this sign.
He needs to learn to stand alone, and to practice making up his own mind. Procrastination is one of his biggest handicaps, though what seems like pure luck may often save the situation, even though he dallies about making decisions.
In marriage, relationships, and other partnerships, he may let the significant other truly believe that he or she is the boss. He will allow the other to handle the mechanical, technical things and initiate most of the activity. People will just naturally want to help him out. He is good at delegating, but Kurt Cobain is really likely to rule with an iron hand in a velvet glove. If things get too far out of hand he can express his displeasure very effectively with sarcasm and rancor.
His charm, humor, and sympathy can open the gates of opportunity to him. However, his kindly, moderate nature makes it quite easy for him to let things drift, which can be extremely annoying to others who are more practical.
On the other hand, given the duality of his sign, he can be efficient and exact. His temperament varies from strongly optimistic to acutely pessimistic. He feels he must follow that still, small voice within, and will be extremely unhappy if he finds himself in situations where his spiritual uniqueness is inhibited.
He is sensitive to other people’s suffering and has an overactive imagination. He feels their pain and sincerely wants to initiate healing and relief. He may choose to work in some of the most sordid positions he can find if he could lighten the loads of those less fortunate. He will devote his strength and time to the sick and the desolate, with no sense of reward. He is blind to all defects in those whom he loves and trusts.
His greatest character defect may be in his sense of fatalism. He needs to realize Kurt Cobain is not chained to any destiny not of his own making. He has to face himself realistically in order to bring forth what he can become. He really does make the world seem like a better place.
People who have Virgo rising at the time of their birth are masters of detail, objectivity, and analysis. They are practical in their intellectual activities and pursuits and enjoy research and the collection of data. They need neatness and order in their environment and have difficulty functioning unless everything is in its place.
The planet Mercury rules Virgo and Gemini, bestowing quickness of intellect and rapidity in communications. While Gemini tends to fracture and scatter these influences, the Virgo native will focus, organize, and store them away–the intellectual pack rat of the Zodiac. Virgo is an Earth sign in the Mutable mode, bestowing both an earthy stability and flexible intellect.
People see him as objective and analytical. Kurt Cobain is probably very good at handling the routine kind of jobs that others want to avoid, especially if it involves ferreting out facts. Kurt Cobain is a master at making lists and he loves catalogs. He wants (and is likely to have) everything he needs right at hand, and will routinely take care of mail, phone calls and errands.
Others see him as modest, unobtrusive, and often rather quiet or shy. Kurt Cobain is a person who is content to be in the background or to serve as an assistant, in the supporting role rather than in the lead. Kurt Cobain is quite humble in his own assessment of himself.
He has a very strong perfectionistic attitude, with a tendency to be overly self-critical. No matter how well he does something, he always sees the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often he will simply refuse to attempt something because he feels he cannot meet his own high standards.
He probably appears super-organized and orderly to others. Kurt Cobain is likely to rearrange his closets frequently, down to the last minute detail. Kurt Cobain is a sucker for rotating shelves, appliance holders, stackers, garment bags, shoe bags, sectioned containers, and drawer dividers. He will buy anything that promises to eliminate clutter and create order.
He is attracted to occupations that require his brilliant ability to analyze–teachers, editors, critics, actors, and writers–all have his personality characteristics. The majority of computer programmers surely share these traits. He may need to watch the tendency to overanalyze and to become so immersed in detail that he fails to see the overall picture.
He appears to be “healthily skeptical”. He won’t chance being led down the garden path. He will question everything to avoid the danger of disillusionment. However, in the constant use of his practical intelligence to avoid a letdown, he may neglect the intuitive part of his mind.
He needs to work at developing his intuition and allow himself to accept some instinctual knowledge. He feels safe with facts, and insecure when dealing with concepts. He needs to learn and accept the difference between intellect and wisdom.
Others see him as super “picky”. Because of his neat and orderly mind, he may be quick to criticize those less organized. He may not realize how blunt or sharp he can be, and thus be totally unaware of his ability to hurt or wound–and he certainly doesn’t mean to. To him, facts are just natural facts and everyone should know that. And Kurt Cobain is not given much to pampering or coddling. Kurt Cobain is not uncaring, but he needs to be aware that his cool approach can come across like ice at times.

LIBRA ON 2ND HOUSE
Venus, planet of beauty, art, and social matters, rules Libra, sign of balance and fair play. When it is found in the second house of finances, money is likely to be made through partnerships or joint enterprises. It could be through activities under the Venus influence (arts, entertainment, real estate, sports), and more than likely through small business efforts. He likes nice things and may spend money, but he will also earn and save.
SCORPIO ON 3RD HOUSE
Scorpio is a Fixed sign of the Water family, ruled by Pluto, planet of power and regeneration. When in the third house of communications, keen perception is present and satire is likely. He has a quick wit, but is prone to express it through sarcasm. There could be some difficulties with close relatives, but his acumen could propel him to positions of power.
SAGITTARIUS ON 4TH HOUSE
Jupiter, planet of expansion, rules Sagittarius. This Mutable Fire sign influences idealism and thrust. When it is found in the fourth house of home life, we can expect pride of home and family.

He also enjoys finery for himself.
CAPRICORN ON 5TH HOUSE
Saturn, planet of discipline and limitations, rules Capricorn, an Earth sign in the Cardinal mode administrative, practical, persevering.

Aquarius is an Air sign in the Fixed mode. It signifies steadfastness, uniqueness, and strong social attitudes. Uranus, planet of ingenuity, sudden changes, and electricity rules Aquarius on this sixth house of work, service, and health, thus planet and sign modify each other. He will be influenced to apply all the above to the affairs of this house. He needs to take health concerns seriously, and try to avoid unrealistic idealism.
PISCES ON 7TH HOUSE
Pisces is ruled by Neptune, planet of mystery, misunderstandings, imagination, and inspiration. None of these are very positive influences toward the seventh house affairs of marriage, other partnerships, and relationships. He needs to be aware of the potential for deception and mystery, but positive imagination and inspiration from the higher octave of Neptune can help him rise above them. He could have good intuition, but will need to watch out for tendencies to be overly passive and a reluctance to take action.
ARIES ON 8TH HOUSE
Aries is a Fire sign in the Cardinal mode, ruled by Mars, planet of action. When on the cusp of the eighth house of death, inheritance, legal affairs and other people’s money, it could influence him to take unhealthy chances in these areas of activity. Death will be an extremely unpleasant subject of thought or conversation, usually resulting in the avoidance of his responsibilities. He will need to be extremely careful to not take risks in the other affairs of this house.
TAURUS IN 9TH HOUSE
Taurus, sign of security and determination, is an Earth sign in the Fixed mode. It is ruled by Venus, planet of beauty, art, social activity, etc. When in the ninth house of recognition, philosophy, and higher mind, Kurt Cobain is likely to appreciate dogma and the status quo.

GEMINI ON 10TH HOUSE
This is the house of the career and Gemini is the house of the twins duality. It is ruled by Mercury visionary, mystical, secretive. Any career activity here will move rapidly or boredom will set in. More than one skill is required, or more than one profession is followed it is easy to do more than one thing at a time.
CANCER ON 11TH HOUSE
This is the house of friendship, love received, hopes and goals. Cancer is a Water sign in the Cardinal mode and influences emotions and security. It is ruled by the Moon, the most emotional planet. This configuration indicates strong emotional ties with friends.
He may adopt a mothering attitude towards them, and need to be careful to select a majority of friends who are stable and steadfast. He can be emotionally drained by friends through his own intuitive empathy, so he sometimes needs to keep a distance.
LEO ON 12TH HOUSE
Leo is a Fixed, Fire sign, ruled by the Sun. When in the twelfth house of the subconscious and hidden matters, it can help to provide illumination into the dark recesses of the mind. He needs time alone to explore the subconscious, and is likely to be attracted to things of the occult. Seek positive directions in occult studies. He could have sudden mystic insights.
PLANETARY SIGN AND HOUSE POSITIONS:
The following planetary sign and house positions are determined by HIS birth data. There are 384 variations of these positions, as well as many other variables, but only 25 of them apply to each individual. The possibility of another person having the same combination of positions is practically non-existent.
The Sun and the Moon are known as the “Lights” and are not planets in the technical sense of the word. However, they are the most visible and perhaps more influential in affecting man’s awareness than all of the other heavenly bodies put together. The blend of the Sun-Moon influences, from the signs they are in, and whether they are in aspect or not, are extremely significant to the personality profile of the new life.
The relationship of the Sun and Moon to each other by their position, sign, and aspect and their relationship to the Ascendant can sometimes provide us with an extremely accurate mini-interpretation of the chart. The interpretation of his Sun-Moon combination is printed next. Study it carefully as well as the next three Sun and Moon sign delineations.
PISCES SUN AND CANCER MOON
Two Water signs trine to each other, and the Moon rules the sign Cancer. This combination indicates deep intuitive feelings and intense emotionalism, which can be cultivated and enhanced by diplomacy and the appearance of shyness. The well of feelings springs from a deep treasure of ego awareness.
When the Self is hurt, it is likely to be expressed by a martyr complex until self-knowledge is gained. Kurt Cobain is sensitive, kind, caring, and thoughtful, and he can be very moody. Kurt Cobain is quite understanding, but he can be somewhat impractical and idealistic. He could be a good doctor, nurse, or teacher. His versatility can uncover many ways to gain an audience and communicate.
SUN IN THE SIXTH HOUSE
The Sun in the houses represents the departments of life most strongly affected by the individual will and power potential. He may have delicate health with his Sun in the sixth house, requiring proper attention to dietary habits. He will have a tendency to seek recognition through his work and service, and he takes pride in his work. He likes to be appreciated however, and if he feels Kurt Cobain is not, he will change jobs.
There probably will be no difficulty in obtaining well-paid positions, and his inclinations will be toward a career related to health such as nursing, pharmacology, counseling, or medicine. His self-esteem and dignity seem to be closely linked to his work and the service he gives.
MOON IN CANCER
In mythology the Moon is always female as the Sun is always male. In most ancient religions and cults, the Moon represents the female force which reflects the male force of the Sun. In astrology, “she” bestows her indiscriminative influences upon both male and female alike, though each sex might respond to the influences in different ways. The Moon in the signs indicates the emotional responses to life’s situations. It determines how they are likely to react to external influences and to the actions of others.
The Moon is ruler of Cancer, and in this sign it indicates depth and intensity of the emotions. Cancer is a water sign, and a wide range of his emotions can best be expressed by tears. He also probably likes to live or at least to spend time by a large body of water: river, lake, or ocean.
He has a sensitivity to the moods and feelings of others that can border on the psychic. His extreme sensitivity to others’ feelings can put him in a position to be emotionally ripped off by those less healthy. He needs to choose his friends and associates carefully, trying to keep optimistic, enthusiastic, up-beat people around him as much as possible.
Cancer is the sign of the mother whether Kurt Cobain is male or female. Family is important to him and Kurt Cobain is strongly connected to family pride and tradition. Kurt Cobain is likely to have extended family ties and interests. Home is a basic need for him, a safe haven from which most of his interests and activities originate.
He may be slow to fall in love, but when he does, it could be “forever”. He will be very protective of those he loves, and maybe a little bit jealous. It will make him happy to be able to serve those he loves and to give to them freely and often. He will remember birthdays and special occasions and be driven to acknowledge them.
He is inclined to withdraw and brood. He needs time to himself to release and rest his emotions. Domestic security and marriage are important to his emotional well-being. He may be a good cook/homemaker if they’re interested, and he is likely to be a good parent, with the exception of a tendency to smother his offspring with love.

MOON IN THE TENTH HOUSE
The Moon in the Houses indicates the areas of daily activity through which his feelings are manifested, and gives clues to the type of activity on the domestic scene. A Tenth House position indicates a need to achieve prominence and recognition. His parents were probably ambitious on his behalf
especially his mother. He probably came from a family respected in the community. He may feel a need to live up to their expectations, which can motivate him to success in the public arena, possibly in politics. But, he needs to set his own expectations of himself. Beware of a tendency to dominate others in order to promote his own recognition.
MERCURY IN PISCES
Mercury in the signs gives clues to the kinds of concerns that occupy his mind, and reveals his psychological approach to making decisions and conveying his ideas to others. When it is found in Pisces, the native is likely to learn more from “osmosis” than through disciplined study.
He arrives at conclusions on the basis of intuitive perceptions from the unconscious mind rather than through logical reasoning. This is not to say Kurt Cobain is not capable of logical and disciplined thought, however. It is just that he has a vivid imagination and an almost photographic ability to visualize thoughts and ideas.
Kurt Cobain is likely to find he has telepathic powers and may be able to communicate with others on a subconscious level. Be aware that his emotions are likely to fluctuate, and could be easily played upon. There will also be periods when he will find decision-making difficult. Kurt Cobain is probably secretive with his private thoughts. The key here is to share with others openly and practice trust in others. He will probably automatically know whom he can trust because of his empathy and intuition.

Kurt Cobain is methodical and efficient and will keep up with the latest research and techniques in his field. Kurt Cobain is concerned with duty, personal hygiene and correct dress. He may have a tendency to overwork and need to watch out for excessive perfectionism.
VENUS IN PISCES
Venus in the signs indicate how he expresses his emotions in personal relationships, especially in love and marriage. It also provides clues to his attitudes toward money, personal possessions, creature comforts, and social and aesthetic values.
Venus is in its exaltation in the sign Pisces, and the love principle reaches its highest evolutionary development. His deep compassion and sympathy verges on spirituality and may be expressed that way. Kurt Cobain is romantic and sensitive, and unless he recognizes clear demonstrations of love and affection from others, he may feel lonely and disappointed.
He needs to avoid letting disappointments develop into martyrdom. His extreme emotional sensitivity can make him afraid of being hurt by rejection, which can cause him to hesitate to express his feelings. The clear message here is to practice risking expression to avoid missing friendships and romantic opportunities. Try not to allow his strong emotions stand in the way of objectivity in his perspective of reality.

VENUS IN THE SEVENTH HOUSE
Venus in the houses indicates how he expresses himself socially, romantically, and artistically in the various areas of his life.

He has a great ability to express love, therefore he receives love in return. He may marry heng and prosper from marriage.
MARS IN SCORPIO
Mars, planet of energy gives us information about modes of action as a result of the desire principle. In Scorpio the energy takes on an intensity of depth and determination. He will utilize his power in all areas of his life, especially in “getting ahead”, where he will let nothing or nobody get in his way. It would be healthy for him to channel some of this energy through sports activities, and he also needs to learn to be sensitive and considerate to the feelings of others.
Read more about MARS IN SCORPIO
MARS IN THE SECOND HOUSE
Mars in the houses indicate the areas of life in which he expresses his actions and desires; and where he needs to use energy and initiative in order to get results. In the second house it deals with financial gain and material goods, and how he may earn them.
Mars is action, and the profession is likely to require competition, physical activity, discipline, and the related skills. Kurt Cobain is likely to have good earning powers, but needs to watch tendencies toward extravagance. He likes to make money and he likes to spend it.
Kurt Cobain is competitive in business and finance and will fight to protect his personal property. He is attracted to his own business which is likely to have mechanical aspects; or to sports which involve personal competition, such as golf or tennis.
JUPITER IN CANCER
Jupiter in the signs gives information concerning his ethical, religious, and philosophic standards and beliefs; and how he may express those interests. In the sign Cancer, it indicates deep influences instilled by his parents in these areas possibly enforced so strongly that he will find it necessary to rebel in later years when his own beliefs mature.
He will try hard to establish a secure, friendly, and open ethical, religious, and philosophic environment in his own home for his own family. He loves good food and is probably a very good cook. He needs to beware of emotional idealism and utopian dreams, as well as self indulgence in food and drink.

JUPITER IN THE TENTH HOUSE
Jupiter in the houses indicates the departments of life and the types of activity through which he expresses his religious, educational, and philosophical ideas. In the tenth house position, Jupiter influences him to feel strong professional ambitions to which honesty and reliability will be applied.
He may hold public office, and will be looked upon as a pillar of the community. He has strong religious and ethical principles, which he expresses through all his public activities. He needs to watch out for tendencies to neglect domestic responsibilities in favor of his public activities, and to avoid hypocrisy and false pride.
SATURN IN PISCES
Saturn in the signs indicates the areas in which he must accept responsibility and the ways in which he must practice discipline and develop maturity. This can be a difficult position because the deep emotional feelings and intuition which are identified with the sign Pisces do not lend themselves well to the order and disciplinary influences of Saturn.
These influences can cause anxieties and feelings of guilt from unknown, or subconscious sources. There can also be obsessions with past behavior, some known and some unknown, with a tendency to dwell in the past and not to be able to let it go.
However, when the influences of Saturn can be applied positively to these anxieties and emotional discomforts, the thinking mind can help organize his thoughts in therapeutic and progressive ways. He will require time alone for meditation and spiritual direction. With spiritual growth and greater spiritual understanding, this planetary position can provide great power for understanding and helping others. He can uncover the sources of confusion and reveal subliminal methods of dealing with many of the hidden lower forces which are detrimental to man’s spiritual progress.

URANUS IN VIRGO
Uranus in the signs indicates the ways in which he expresses his urge for freedom and individuality, and how he establishes his link with the Universal Mind.

Kurt Cobain is likely to use his intuitive qualities for the good of mankind, whether Kurt Cobain is fully conscious of it or not, and he has the ability to work behind the scenes very effectively with it. He can be quite secretive about his psychic gifts, and is also likely to become a repository for the deepest secrets of his friends. Beware of negative psychic phenomena and avoid false mediums. He will be able to perceive the difference.
NEPTUNE IN SCORPIO
Neptune in the signs manifests more historical and generational influences than personal. It indicates the kind of cultural expression shown by the imaginative and creative faculties of mankind over a given period of time. His personal responses to Neptune in Scorpio are likely to be in sexual areas and psychological areas of escape. Drug abuse is strongly indicated, and spiritual regeneration will be forced upon him.

PLUTO IN THE TWELFTH HOUSE
Pluto in the houses indicates in which areas of life he needs to exercise conscious creative willpower to regenerate himself and his surroundings.

Manifest A real relationship with this love ritual!
Following are the interpretations of the planetary aspects to each other. Aspects are angular relationships between two or more planets that have been found to modify the influences bestowed. Significant angles are: Conjunction (same degree), Sextile (60 degrees), Square (90 degrees), Trine (120 degrees), and Opposition (180 degrees). Don’t worry that some of these individual interpretations seem to conflict. Remember we look at the whole person, and the separate parts can modify, reinforce, or nullify each other.
SUN TRINE MARS
This aspect bestows courage, decisiveness, willpower, and leadership ability. It is often accompanied by physical strength and endurance. Kurt Cobain is likely to be very competitive and can function at high levels of energy for long periods of time.
He can put theory into practice and perform difficult tasks. However, Kurt Cobain is likely to apply all these attributes only in areas of his own choosing, shutting others out. Also, he needs to watch for burnout. The keyword is moderation.
MOON TRINE MERCURY
This trine between the planet of emotions and the planet of intellect can give him a good memory and a good working relationship between his conscious and his unconscious mind. Kurt Cobain is likely to be a good conversationalist because Kurt Cobain is truly interested in whomever he is communicating with.
He can emotionally and logically understand and communicate the ordinary, daily life affairs, and he probably has a good business sense. This is a rare supportive aspect.
MOON SEXTILE THE NORTH NODE
This aspect indicates his habit patterns are likely to be socially acceptable and he will be popular with others. It is favorable for the timing of his day-to-day activities.
MERCURY OPPOSITE URANUS
Oppositions usually mean obstacles to be overcome and this is no exception. He could be blunt and tactless, arrogant and conceited. No one else could make him change his mind about anything, but he may change it without the slightest justification. The key here is to “lighten up”. Don’t be afraid to be wrong.
Cultivate patience and cooperation with others whether he agrees with them or not (and he probably won’t). Try to avoid snap judgments and sudden decisions “look before he leap”. Seek spiritual guidance for the use of the awesome power this aspect can provide.
MERCURY OPPOSITE PLUTO
This aspect can put him in a position in which he must deal with secret, or (possibly) dangerous information. At any rate, Kurt Cobain is likely to be the repository of much confidential information, and well able to keep it so since secretiveness is a part of his nature.
He needs to watch out for an unusual curiosity about others, and avoid his tendency to interrogate them. He would make an excellent detective, but he could risk resentment and bad personal relationships by excessive nosiness. His secretiveness about his psychic interests could be detrimental to spiritual development. He needs to trust more in the positive spiritual forces in his life.

This square puts obstacles in the way of communicating with authority figures, as well as family members. It can be especially difficult in professional matters. Good communication is essential to success in any job or profession, and this square hinders his ability to communicate.

This gift should be cultivated through positive spiritual exploration and growth.
VENUS CONJUNCT SATURN
This a very powerful conjunction, providing discipline, form and structure to his artistic tendencies, as well as some degree of patience to help in artistic expression. If music be one of his artistic talents, Saturn will provide rhythm, harmony, and melody. He may not be as socially outgoing as other people, but are likely to form lasting friendships.
A sense of loyalty, justice, and fair play is indicated. However, he needs to watch out for tendencies to depend upon others to gratify his emotional needs, and be forewarned that there may be periods when he could feel unloved and unappreciated. When that happens, look at the positive influences of this aspect.
VENUS OPPOSITE URANUS
This opposition makes for an unstable emotional nature by its tendency to stimulate the desire for all types of exotic experiences without consideration for the consequences. This applies especially to the area of romance and marriage. Infatuations seem to come and go easily, leaving chaos in their wake.

MARS SQUARE JUPITER
Squares provide obstacles or stepping-stones to growth, depending on how we deal with their influences and this one is difficult. It pits two of the most motivating forces against each other: the active forces of our base desires (Mars) squared off against the philosophical urges of our higher self (Jupiter). And both planets encourage expression of their influences in grandiose ways.
There is the tendency to justify aggressive tendencies by engaging in them through some socially acceptable “holy” crusade.

Avoid hypocrisy, seeking through prayer and meditation to reinforce the Jupiter influences toward a higher spiritual level.

Kurt Cobain is hospitable and can be overly generous, likely to contribute freely to institutions, hospitals, religious movements, and institutions of higher learning. This aspect bestows a boundless imagination, allowing for ingenuity and expansiveness in musical talents, art, drama, and mysticism.

SATURN OPPOSITE URANUS
This is a difficult aspect, but of course we know that squares and oppositions produce tensions to motivate growth, and obstacles to be overcome. This one produces insecurity and lack of stability in his life, causing him to be inconsistent in his speech and behavior.
He craves freedom from these feelings, but is unwilling to admit to having unreasonable and inconsistent attitudes. Humility is hard for him to achieve. Though able to work hard, his goals may be fuzzy, and common sense and good planning absent from his efforts. Uranus electric, impulsive, sudden
is a hard planet for Saturn to discipline. He needs to practice patience and perseverance. Positive aspects of Saturn in his chart can modify this aspect, also.
