Wonderful, maverick, true artist Thornton Dial passed a couple of days ago at the age of 87. He had Sun in Virgo — the sign of detail and craft — Venus in Libra (artistic) conjunct Mercury. The titles of his works were important, and the works speak.

Saturn was one degree past Return for him (3rd time), Jupiter had passed over his Sun and was making its way back to sweep him into the big beyond.
