Google Yankee doodle Astrology of Dr. Robert Moog electronic music inventor by Tara Greene

May 23 2012 is the celebration of the 78th birthday of Doctor Robert Moog the inventor of electronic music with his new fangled electronic synthesizer patented in 1966 which was filed in October 1969.

It’s 43 years or a Uranus opposition to the time the Moog synthesizer was first patented.  

Dr. Moog worked with early electronic music pioneers John Cage, and Wendy Carlos  an American composer and electronic musician, whose recording in 1968, Switched-On Bach, music by J.S. Bach painstakingly assembled, phrase-by-phrase, on the Moog which was a new and unknown instrument. The album was awarded three Grammy Awards in 1969. He also worked with Rick Wakeman of YES,and  Keith Emmerson of Emmerson, Lake and Palmer fame amongst others.

 Lady GAGA and all of modern music would be nowhere without Dr. Robert‘s invention. 

Lets check out Dr. Moog’s Natal horoscope to see evidence or lack of his musical genius.

Born May 23  1934 in New York City I have no birth time so will use NOON time as birth always for a famous person.

All inventors are AQUARIUS types,

Dr. Moog has his NORTH NODE representing his highest spiritual goal at 13 degrees of Aquarius.

He also has SATURN, the builder, the architect, karma, the father principle, at 27 degrees of Aquarius  close to the position of the Fixed star

Fomalhaut aka Angel Gabriel- the one blowing the trumpet- music-the announcing angel. SATURN is the traditional ruler of AQUARIUS and so is very powerful. Dr. Moog is considered to be the chief builder and inventor of electronic music, the real founding father. That’s a perfect harmonious fit!

He had the Moon in Virgo it looks like on that day. Moon in Virgo people are very  focussed, analytical, perfectionist, practical, hard-working, detail oriented and doing the VIRGO thing of being of service to the world.

VENUS rules music. Venus is in what pioneering, forward thinking sign then? ARIES of course. VENUS in ARIES is the pioneer, the self motivated individual, the leader, the first, numero uno, chock up another one!

Venus rules the signs of  TAURUS and LIBRA

Dr. Robert had MARS in TAURUS –

TAURUS is the sign of  “I HAVE”.” As the first earth sign, it literally means I have my body, my hands, my senses, the resources, tools,money

 In a 2000 interview, Moog said “I’m an engineer. I see myself as a toolmaker and the musicians are my customers. They use my tools.”

So we see his MARS as  action principle, libido, drive, testosterone was ruled by VENUS and her love of music. It’s all about creativity.

Bob also had JUPITER planet of OPTIMISM, expansion, International connections,risk-takers, philanthropists,  leaders, in LIBRA

so VENUS rules JUPITER as well. Now Jupiter is Retrograde which means there is a karmic connection here.

I immediately thought that Dr. Moog was an ancient musician for many lifetimes, I say him wearing a Greek toga, playing a lyre and he worshipped Terpsichore the ancient GREEK GODDESS one of the nine MUSES of the Arts.

There is in fact an Asteroid named after Terpsichore and where is she in His natal Astrology chart?

At 28 degrees 49 minutes of VIRGO conjunct his MOON { his mother}.

Dr. Moog’s mom must have been playing music all the time when she was pregnant or sang. Or he had a very strong soulforce connection and new what his genius was. He was conscious since before birth I sense, of what Dr. James Hillman calls the Daemon,or Guardian Angel  which he wrote about in his best selling book THE SOUL’S CODE which I highly recommend.

Here’s the BEATLES singing Dr. Robert http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VMHLrqKTOfA&feature=related

Dr. Moog had his SUN at 1 degree of Gemini, coincidentally close to the May 20th solar eclipse and MERCURY in GEMINI which is very strong in its home sign, plus Chiron at 4 and Asteroid Ceres conjunct the Sun. I bet Mr. Moog was a typical archetype genius but scatter-brained professor, very intelligent, very curious, very young, a great communicator.

NEPTUNE the “HIGHER OCTAVE” of VENUS is at 9 degrees of VIRGO, shows Mr. MOOG again as a symbol of a VENUSIAN, creative, diligent, hard-working, making NEPTUNE practical. NEPTUNE which rules spirit and all creative inspiration comes down to earth, is a useful time-saving VIRGO  tool.

Dr. Moog has URANUS the ruler of his North Node and SATURN at 29 degrees of ARIES,

indicating he was meant to be a very radical independent modern technology inventor, someone whose invention would bring freedom liberation, self-expression to. 29 degrees is also a critical or karmic degree,,,

He had PLUTO in CANCER conjunct LILLITH

in a square to Jupiter and VENUS and bringing in URANUS.

He must have had a lot of difficulty with women,or was attracted to very powerful women. I sense that the Moog synthesizer, the prototype of all modern electronic pop music, had this LILLITH driving energy coming through Moog’s Soul behind it. As if Lillith Herself instructed him from the unconscious or super conscience to create an instrument of radical freedom,modern liberation… exactly where would LADY GAGA be with Mr. Moog or Rhianna or any rapper?

Why did GOOGlE choose tohonor DR. MOOG’s birthday now? Well the planet MARS is exactly on his Natal NEPTUNE now at 9 degrees of VIRGO.

We hail you and thank you Dr. Robert MOOG for your new fangled in 1966 invention. You gave the world a great invention.

I’ll leave you with one of my faves of pop music YELLO -oooh yeah! with some good astrology symbols the moon the Sun! so beautiful OH YEAH!
