RIP Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451 Astrology of his life and death Tara Greene, Astrology psychic

I used to love to read Science Fiction years ago in College and of course Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, a classic, was a Sci Fi version of 1984.

Sci Fi Ray Bradbury's astrology by Tara Greene

Sadly we are very close to the future world of ideas censorship and book burning that Bradbury warned us about in his 1953 book.  

Bradbury was one of the most celebrated among 20th century American writers of speculative fiction. He was a very popular writer with The Martian Chronicles, the Illustrated Man  and Something Wicked This Way Comes.  Many of Bradbury’s works have been adapted into television shows or films.

Ray Bradbury was born August 22 1920 in Waukegan Illinois at  4:50 pm . Lets look at who he was through his Astrology chart.

Ray Bradbury Astrology by Tara Greene

Ray was destined for fame and worldly success and freedom-fighting  revolutionizing consciousness born with LEO SUN exactly conjunct bountiful lucky JUPITER at 29 degrees,the fateful degree of royal LEO. Jupiter planet of  risk takers, gamblers,rules expansion, philosophy, justice,optimism. The Sun/Jupiter are on the cusp of the 9th house,the natural house of  the centaur Sagittarius.

THE SUN JUPITER conjunctions is opposite to revolutionary, freedom-loving planet URANUS, sign of individuality and the collective at 3 degrees of Pisces, the sign of authors, dreamers, spirituality, karmic servers.

“When you’ve nothing to lose, you run any risk you want.” a famous quote from Fahrenheit 451 is exemplary of his natal chart Uranus opposite Sun Jupiter.

Bradbury tells about an incident in his life which helped his creativity perfectly defined by the planets.  In 1932,  a carnival entertainer, one Mr. Electrico,touched him on the nose with an electrified sword, which made his hair stand on end, and shouted, “Live forever!” Bradbury remarked, “I felt that something strange and wonderful had happened to me because of my encounter with Mr. Electrico…[he] gave me a future…I began to write, full-time. I have written every single day of my life since that day 69 years ago.” It was at that age that Bradbury first started to do magic which was his first great love. If he had not discovered writing, he would have become a magician. 

A magician with words is exactly what his  NEPTUNE MERCURY conjunction is! In earlier degrees of LEO,  Ray had  a huge imagination,even without Mr. Electrico but that incident was also part of his fate. and used to dream and see and know all the places and things he wrote about, in other words he was a real time traveller.Didn’t need a time machine, he knew that whatever it was he could imagine, was real.

Ray’s birth map is very stong as he has 3 groups of conjunctions in his chart.

He has a SATURN VENUS conjunction at 13 degrees of VIRGO in his 8th house. The combination of Saturn and Venus made him very serious about doing what he loves. Saturn always matures so he was married to the same woman for many years. He was a perfectionist, orderly, meticulous, probably had an amazing memory for details, a workaholic. There was much emotional discipline and a love of hard work.

North Node and Mars in Scorpio shows his obsessive nature in the 10th house of career and worldly power.  He was a charismatic, obsessive driven person. He came here to use his innate powers as a researcher and detective of the collective to focus to help change and transform others. He was attracted to the dark side, the Unconscious, things which others were afraid of, a revealer of mysteries, and secrets, the title of his book Something Wicked.. perfectly depicts the SCORPIO  planets. He was probably very secretive about himself.

The moon at 15 degrees of Sagittarius, the middle degrees, indicates he had a love of  travel,needed space n his relationships. He was honest to a fault, probably loved animals, Had a wry sense of humour. A natural philosopher, he was a shrewd judge of character, and could be judgemental.  He  loved teaching through his writing, with a strong sense of justice, he demonstrated that the pen was mightier than the sword. The Moon is square to Saturn and Venus so he was married to his work. Sagittarius moon is ruled by Jupiter and he had one heck of a lucky Jupiter.

Pluto is in Cancer in the 6th house of work. his soul needed to nurture and feed people through his work. His work was the original Chicken Soup of the Soul.

THE ASTROLOGY of his Death June 5 2012

Being a man of exact conjunctions in his chart I was not surprised at all to see the exact alignments of transiting planets on the day he passed into spirit.

Ray Bradbury passed away on the Venus/Sun transit on June 5. What a great day to die. I can see his spirit carried upwards towards the Sun in Apollo’s chariot to marry Venus. Feels like a hero’s death and reward.

VENUS/SUN are exactly opposite his MOON on the day of his death which is also square to his natal Saturn { death} and Venus {love}.

PLUTO in Capricorn is also opposite his natal Pluto { Soul}  in Cancer at 8 degrees and was being squared by Uranus the planet of Freedom in Aries exactly.

NEPTUNE the spirituality dreamers and creativity planet is now at 3 degrees 9 mins of Pisces exactly on his Natal Uranus. Creative soul freedom.

URANUS, planet of freedom is at 8 degrees of Aries also exactly conjunct to his natal Chiron at 9 degrees, this is freedom from wounds.

Ray’s Ascendant was 22 degrees = of Capricorn and Saturn { the grim reaper} is at 23 degrees of Libra retrograde exactly square to his Ascendant.

Jupiter at 28 degrees of  TAURUS conjunct the Pleiades is exactly square to his Natal glorious SUN JUPITER CONJUNCTION.

this man went out of the physical on the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the Venus Sun transit like a KING.

the King is dead, long live the King!
