Bowie is a Neptunian with all aspects of this planet:

His ambiguous beauty fascinates and seduces. He morphs into multiple appearances and likes to dress.

2 - the chameleon artist

He created several characters to escape his psychological problems and reality: Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane. "Today I do not remember very well who I was at that time, I no longer existed at all."
With Neptune on the Ascendant, square to the Sun, there is a risk of depersonalisation and a search for identity.

3 - escape in artificial paradises

This is the escape from reality, typically Neptunian with the use of drugs. Bowie through a period of depression which he tries to escape by cocaine. "With coke, I was caught in a downward spiral, it allowed me to be someone else and made me crazy."

It's early in his life, an illegitimate child with schizophrenia in his family (including his beloved half-brother, who committed suicide). He will himself afraid of going insane. He talks a lot about his double who is his escape to not lose reason.
Neptune, master of the house VI (health) is the square of Mars and the Sun in house IV (family, roots, origins).

7 - Bowie, the myth

Like many Neptunian characters (eg Marilyn Monroe): Neptune on the Ascendant lion, it will remain an enigma and a mystery (see the secret of his illness and the release of his latest album "Black Star" on the day of its 69ans two days before his death).
