Olivia Newton-John’s reflects on former partner. Gone but not forgotten?
Olivia Newton-John spoke recently of her former partner who mysteriously disappeared in 2005 whilst on a fishing trip. There have been many reports over the years that Patrick McDermott faked his own death and that he may be alive and well living rural Mexico with a girlfriend. There has been no real evidence to support this. Olivia has said that she cannot believe her former partner would fake his own death and that it was very difficult to deal with. Nobody appeared to know what happened. Philosophical in her approach, Olivia has said that eventually there was a form of acceptance and she learned to let go. The tragedy happened a few months after they separated which must have been a bitter pill to swallow for Olivia.
The age defying 68-year-old works tirelessly with cancer patients following her own battle with breast cancer in 1992 and also the loss of her father that same year to liver cancer. Olivia is optimistic and has believes that scientists are making good progress with cancer research.
Olivia rose to fame in the seventies after starring alongside John Travolta in the movie musical Grease, making Olivia a household name. Olivia went on to marry John Easterling in a secret ceremony in 2008 and she remains close to her daughter Chloe who has followed in her mother’s footsteps as a musician.
Let’s see what the cards say for ‘survivor’ Olivia today. She drew the Ten of Wands, the Four of Hearts and Six of Pentacles.
The Ten of Wands reveals the overwhelming burden’s and responsibilities that Olivia has endured over the years. She is a survivor in its truest sense. Her optimism together with the support of loved ones has helped her carry the burden. I wonder if Olivia feels that any suffering may have been due to a karmic debt. She is learning to take her power back and has redefined her goals to accommodate the needs of herself and her family.
The Four of Hearts represents Olivia’s ability to take a step back from life’s drama’s in order to re-evaluate her life path without the distractions of the media and the daily grind. She does reflect on Patrick and the past but it is not all consuming like it once was. Olivia has gained a closure of sorts and the disappearance of her former partner has taken its toll but she has not allowed herself to become a recluse. Olivia allowed herself to reconnect with her own value system before venturing out emotionally. This card shows the love she shares with her husband.
The Six of Pentacles is very much representative of the confident and mature woman whose touch heals. There is a generosity and honesty within Olivia and she believes that all that is given freely will be returned tenfold. She continues to find fulfillment through caring for her family and through her charity work. I feel that Olivia has allowed herself to make peace with the past and the scars have faded. Well done for overcoming adversity in the most graceful and selfless manner. Olivia Newton-John we salute you!
