That was literally how I phrased the question. In a way, I kind of know. On Aug 24th 2007 he died of Cancer (although his actual passing could have been due to MRSA). I worded the question like that because I wanted to know if he is in a better place now.
Here's the chart:-
Now, I think I take h4 to represent Dad. His significator is therefore Venus. Venus is way up on the MC in H10. This is the first time I've done a chart on this kind of issue (and was actually unsure which forum section to put it under), but anyway the position of Venus is intriguing. Right on the Midheaven. So does that mean Dad is in heaven? I was absolutely sure when he passed that he had gone to heaven (he was such a wonderful and kind person). I am a R. Catholic and do believe in that. (But then I also believe in past lives etc so my beliefs are eclectic to say the least!).
Just after he passed (I'm talking hours here), my brother and I were on our way to the hospital to see him and say goodbye. We drove up a steep hill and when we got to the top, the most wonderful sunset I have ever seen beamed around us. My brother said to me, "You and I may have different beliefs, but I think we both know what that means.". We have also seen lots of butterflies since he went (apparently a sign from those who have passed that they have got to a better place).
Can anyone comment further?
