Recently I was watching the film “Peyton Place” with Lana Turner.
I remembered the series with Dorothy Malone, Mia Farrow, Barbara Perkins, Ryan o’Neil and Ed Nelson.
I loved it and I was wondering how this film with Lana Turner would be.
Well I was blown away by it! What a fantastic actress Lana Turner was. I loved her performance.
I googled for information about her and discovered that she lived from the 8th Febr. 1921 till the 29th June 1995.
She had a difficult life.
I looked in her birthchart and saw that there was much karma from previous lifes.
When somebody asked her if she would change things if she could do things over and which things that would be, she answered that everything was destined, so that there was not much she could have done differently.
But from the interviews she gave, when she was older, you can see, that she became much more herself.
For the astrologers among you, here is her birthchart:
You can see the big cross in the flexible signs. Mars, Ascendant, Saturn, Descendant. 4 Retrograde planets and on top of that Venus conjunct Chiron and Venus square the retrograde Pluto and Venus trine the retrograde Neptune. Really a difficult constellation in terms of relationships.
I am watching her movies at the moment and there are a lot.
