One of the great names of the pop music scene in the 50’s and 60's and one half of the duo the Everly Brothers, Phil Everly has died in California due to a lung condition. In their heyday, Don and Phil penned a sting of successful hits including “Bye Bye Love”, “Wake Up Little Suzie” and “All I Have To Do Is Dream” and were notable for their close harmony.

Venus through Taurus also ruled his Midheaven and thus also his 10th house of career. Mercury, the planet of communication was also in the 5th house of creativity square to Saturn, strengthening the link to a career (Saturn) in show-business (5th).
Phil had a couple of very interesting fixed star connections too. His Midheaven was conjunct to Algol, the demon star and this lead to him forever seeking a challenge through his work. He also had his natal Neptune conjunct to the star in the constellation of Hydra, Alkes, indicating he had special gift and a magical quality that he brought to other people. With his brother Don, he certainly did...
