How Curiosity Killed The Dragon

Bruce Lee is widely regarded as the most iconic martial arts action star of all time. His influence transcends generations, leaving an indelible mark on both the world of cinema and the realm of martial arts. With his unparalleled skill, charisma, and philosophy, Lee revolutionized the portrayal of martial arts on the silver screen, captivating audiences worldwide.

Through his groundbreaking films such as “Enter the Dragon” and “Fist of Fury,” Bruce Lee not only showcased his extraordinary physical prowess but also conveyed deeper philosophical messages, inspiring countless individuals to embrace martial arts as a path to personal growth and self-discovery. Even decades after his untimely passing, Bruce Lee’s legacy continues to resonate, cementing his status as an enduring symbol of martial arts excellence and cultural icon.

Lee tragically died on July 20, 1973 at the age of 32. The circumstances of his sudden passing quickly became the subject of speculation and conspiracy theories. Some questioned the official cause of death, which was attributed to a cerebral edema, while others speculated about foul play or the involvement of external forces. Despite various investigations and theories, the exact circumstances of Bruce Lee’s untimely demise remain a matter of debate and intrigue, adding to the mystique surrounding the legendary martial artist and actor.

The official cause of death according to his autopsy report, was cerebral edema or swelling of the brain. Apparently he experienced a severe adverse reaction to a prescription painkiller called equagesic that was given to him by a friend after he complained of a headache. This kids, is why you should never take someone else’s prescription medicine, so take heed all you reckless pill poppers out there.

But then there’s also the traces of Hashish that coroners found in Lee’s stomach. Hashish is a potent form of cannabis (marijuana) produced by collecting and compressing trichomes, the most potent material from cannabis plants. Hashish contains the same active ingredients as marijuana, like THC and other cannabinoids, but with higher concentrations. It was known that during the last several months of his life, Bruce consumed Hashish frequently and this hashish was a potent, uncut strain obtained from Nepal. It is believed that the hashish in combination with the painkiller is what triggered the fatal reaction and what doctors term “death by misadventure”.

In spite of the official story (which Bruce’s wife has firmly supported), the unusual circumstances surrounding Lee’s death have inspired many conspiracy theories to circulate that are as absurd as they are amusing. Examples include speculation of him being murdered by the Chinese mafia, or by ninjas. Perhaps he was poisoned by his supposed mistress, Betty Ting or killed by a prostitute.


The theory I find intriguing however, is the notion of a family curse. When Bruce was born (in Chinatown, San Francisco, California), his parents referred to him in Chinese as “Little Phoenix”, which was meant as a female name. They did so to protect Bruce from the evil spirits they believed claimed the life of their previous son. In their tradition, referring to the male child as a female would confuse the demons and ward them off. So, some might say his demise was linked to these demons who’ve been after him all his life.

I guess they were chasing the dragon, right? Get it? That was a marijuana joke (no disrespect intended).

20 years later, the conspiracies would continue, when Bruce’s son Brandon suddenly died in a freak accident while filming “The Crow”. The actor who accidentally killed him talked about the incident publicly for the first in this interview.

The Lee family curse theory was once again revived, fueled by the intriguing similarities and coincidences between the father and son’s death. Interestingly, Bruce died in ’73 and Brandon in ’93 and they shared the sign of the dragon in the Chinese zodiac. Both died while filming movies that involve death.

But what about the astrological circumstances of Bruce Lee’s life? He was born November 27, 1940 under the sign of the Metal dragon in the Chinese zodiac. In western astrology however, he was a Sagittarius with a substantial stellium in Scorpio. A stellium is a concentration of 4 or more planets  occupying a given house or sign, thus intensifying it’s significance in the chart. Stelliums have been found in the charts of many extraordinary individuals including Austrian composer Wolfgang Mozart and Polish physicist Marie Curie. Stelliums could indicate remarkable ability or genius in a specific area of the chart due to the stacked planetary energy coursing through it. Bruce Lee had a mercury, moon, mars, venus cluster in Scorpio within the 11th house, the house of friends and networks. This could hint at the tremendous and iconic popularity he achieved in his rather short life.

When it comes to death and destruction however, we look at Scorpio and the 8th house along with it’s rulers pluto and mars. Bruce’s Scorpio stellium is strong enough to have made him an actual Scorpio for all intensive purposes. His creative passion, emotional intensity and forceful dynamism along with his thoughtful, inspiring statements regarding life and death are consistent with what Scorpio represents; transformation, death, regeneration, violence. He even advised us all to “be like water”, which is a very water sign thing to say!

I calculated the Arabic part of death in Bruce Lee’s chart and it turned out to be in 28 degrees Cancer. Bruce Lee died on the 20th of July and guess what? The 20th of July pretty much falls on the 28th degree of Cancer! Uncanny! Coincidence? Probably. I did the same for Brandon’s chart and the result was 2 degrees in Leo which did not match up with his March 31 death date. I also tried to make a connection between his mercury and the nature of his death from brain swelling due to drug use (Neptune) but it felt like a bit of a stretch.
