I believe the focus should not be on her “troubled life and addictions” but on what we can learn from her life, about her extreme emotions and how she experienced and creatively translated the depth of polarity between sexes. What do you see in her birth- and death-chart (from darkstarastrology.com)?
(…) Amy has Moon/Neptune conjunct in Sagittarius (possibly) this aspect often symbolizes mother as the “suffering woman”, who may have sacrificed her own needs for freedom, and her own security by staying with a man who was with another woman. The Sun may also square the Moon in her natal chart which can reflect a psychological split. Conflict between Amy’s self (Sun) and her habitual patterns, (Moon). Basically What I described earlier with her Virgo/Sagittarius challenges. Sun/Moon in conflict can describe insecurity and a deep inner conflict.
With Sun square Neptune Amy’s self confidence has been fragmented, her will is less focused and at times confusion and disillusionment can ensue in relation to life, goals, and her father. Escapism and avoidance of responsibilities can become problematic. With such heavy Neptune aspects she may prefer to run away rather than confront problems. Amy may have also become lost in all the glamour and illusion of her life that she has lost her true humble centre, what could help her get out of this trouble (Sun in Virgo).
Moon in Sagittarius is inclined to be restless, needing freedom, non committed, fun loving, humorous etc. she needs to expand the meaning of her world, she basically likes to come and go and she pleases. The Moon conjunct with Neptune describes her sensitivity to her environment, if she is surrounded by negativity than this can affect he well being, and emotional state. This combination is indicative of creative gifts/artistic gifts. But there is a strong need to evade harsh reality.
Mercury/Virgo/Sun this is her critical nature which may be turned on her self, this combo can give good powers of analysis but Neptune squares this aspect and therefore can get in the way of logical thinking, although she is highly imaginative and creative, she may not always view life realistically. It would help her if she could clarify her objectives, and focus her attention on one thing at a time as her mind has a tendency to drift off. (…)
