Edward Snowden, traitor or hero? Astrology analysis

I was interviewed by The Voice of Russia’s online paper recently and they askedme about what I see as Edward Snowden’s future.

Right after we started speaking on Skype, our connection cacked out and we were unable to reconnect.

Hmm, I wonder why.. 

Edward Snowden, the 30 year old former National Security Agency and CIA contractor is now a fugitive in Russia for revealing the truth to the world about how the U.S. secretly carries on covert  surveillance of its own people and governments around the world.

Edward Snowden Astrology chart Tara Greene

Snowden quoted the 4th and 5th amendments of the Constitution of the U.S. Article 12  and stated “I believe in the principle declared at Nuremburg in 1945; “Individuals have international duties which transcend the national obligations of obedience. Therefore individual citizens have the duty to violate domestic laws to prevent crimes against peace and humanity from occuring.”

People either Love, applaud and laud Edward for his bravery and patriotism or hate him and see him as a traitor and a spy. I wanted to check out his Astrology chart.

Edward Snowden’s chart and the chart of the United States are inextricably linked to each other.

Edward Snowden astrology Tara Greene

The inside chart is Edward Snowden’s Natal Chart  

born June 21 1983 at 4:42 am from his birth certificate in Elizabeth City North Carolina.

Edward is a Mercurial GEMINI SUN born at the very last “critical” degree of Gemini, sign of the fleet-footed Messenger, making him the ULTIMATE messenger of the God’s.

Edward’s Ascendant is at 12 degrees GEMINI-exactly the degree opposite the U.S. “Sibley” Natal chart’s Ascendant, so the U.S. and Edward’s direction is interfaced. Edward’s Mercury is also at 10 Gemini in the 12th house of the unconscious but conjunct the Ascendant. Edward has his Sun in the 1st house so he IS the Archetypal Mercurial Messenger. He identifies in that role. He has Mars, his direction, Mars is the Military, what he defends, at 24 degrees Gemini conjunct the Sun and the North Node which represents his Highest Spiritual Goal at 25 degrees GEMINI. 

The Ascendant, Mercury, the Sun, Mars, North Node conjunction makes him a quintuple communicator. The North Node is conjunct the POLE star, the star that all sailors navigate around. This is a very powerful symbol.

Edward’s highest evolutionary goal is to be a Light bearer, a way-shower for the rest of the world, through communicating a message that will have world-wide impact, in a direct, aggressive, defensive, Martial way.  This fits his situation perfectly.

The MOON is at 13 degrees SCORPIO in the 6th house.

The Moon is instincts, unconscious motivations, feelings. In Scorpio this speaks of power, secrecy, manipulation, control, espionage, surveillance, the shadow, danger, the thief, vendetta, death, change, transformation, through his work.  Also fits the situation to a T.

His Mercury and Ascendant is quincunx to his Moon indicating that he is at odds with his work, and being of service.

Edward’s Venus, his values, what he loves, how he loves, is in LEO at 14+ degrees which is actually the 15th and most powerful degree of Leo in the 3rd house. Venus in Leo is courage, daring, protecting what he loves, dramatic. He is proud, fearless, a leader, self- expressive, creative, very heart-felt, like a child playing a role. In the 3rd house, this is the natural house of communications.

Jupiter is at 3 degrees Sagittarius Retrograde, the Sign that it rules, so it is very strong, but held back or repeating a Karmic lesson in the 6th house.  Jupiter is BIG,truth, vision, the Higher Law, foreigners, teachers, philosophers, the military regalia. 

Uranus is conjunct Jupiter at 6 degrees also Retrograde. Both of them oppose Mercury so they are interconnected. Uranus is also conjunct the Descendent, the 7th house cusp, meaning Edward is always a cutting edge, revolutionary, freedom loving person.

The Jupiter/Uranus combo binds their energies so they amplify each other. This is a Super expansive, International, Hi Tech, innovator, rebel-Uranian, who MUST TELL THE TRUTH in Sagittarius.  Interesting the double Retrograde indicates that karmically Edward may have done something similar before or that he came back to wage a vendetta on those in power-Judges, or former Overlords who oppressed him in the past.

 CHIRON at 29 degrees Taurus, is conjunct to the famous Pleiades. Chiron the wounded healer, in the 12th house of the unconscious is opposite Jupiter indicating there is an Unconscious wound, a palpable, bodily sense for Edward, of what is right and wrong, what is truth. HE has a felt sense of being wounded unconsciously which triggers him to act in service, the 6th house to a greater Higher good.

Saturn at 27 degrees of Libra Retrograde in the 5th house of creativity, is conjunct Pluto at 26 degrees also Retrograde. Pluto conjunct Saturn is the hallmark of Edward’s generation who have all chosen to be born with this difficult, heavy, karmic soulful sense of JUSTICE- the sign of Libra.

Saturn is tradition, the Patriarchy and Pluto is the Lord of Death, change, transformation. The 5th house is the natural house of LEO, the Sun, the source, self- expression, drama, creativity, COURAGE. These 2 heavies Trine Mars, North Node and the Sun.  So this is an easy aspect and imbues Edward’s entire personality with this sense of heaviness, and deep soulful transformation as part of where he would express his innate love of freedom,truth and being courageous enough to risk his life for his beliefs- Mercury. 

NEPTUNE, in Edward’s 7th house of relationships, the higher octave of VENUS is at 27 degrees Sagittarius – exactly on the Galactic Center. Again this is a generational hallmark of all people born in the year before and after 1983. Neptune is where one is intuitive, one’s dreams, psychic energy, visionaries, faith, illusions, delusions, addictions,idealism, unbounded, glamour. Neptune as ruler of Pisces, energy is chameleon like, super sensitive, has no boundaries, is Christ’s symbol.

I personally believe that people with planets conjunct the Galactic Center are directly tuned into its’ vast multi-dimensional Black Hole energy. 

Neptune is of course opposed to Edward’s Mars, North Node and Sun in the 1st house. This makes Edward a virtual sponge, absorbing everyone’s energy around him, he can be a total chameleon blending in invisibly. He is a total  idealist.  Neptune’s energy at its highest expression is selflessness or martyrdom. He is an atheist but I feel he has great faith in a Higher Good, or at least in the power of telling the truth, ever the Sagittarius philosopher, and that is what motivates him. 

Edward’s MC or high Noon position is at 20 degrees Aquarius, the sign of technology, revolutionaries, freedom fighters, strong individuals who resonate with being part of the collective. They are unegotistical leaders. Planet Uranus rules his MC and it is placed in the 6th house of service conjunct Jupiter sign of truth telling.

I could belabor the point in his chart but it is so obvious to me, that Edward’s highest spiritual, karmic, goal was to do exactly  what he did. Expose the hi tech surveillance of the government to help the people. It’s all over his Natal chart, the fact of his being courageous, daring, secretive, being accepted by foreign countries-Jupiter for asylum. I think he is used to being alone with his Scorpio moon. He has always felt like an outsider.

I see that Edward Snowden is a very brave young man. Yes his life is on the line now and will be so for a very long time although I do believe that he will receive great honors down the road. Even a Nobel Peace prize.

Americans, Canadians and most of the people in the world are so naive. I really don’t know where this idea that the government is a benevolent agency that most people naively ascribe to, came from. Not many governments really ever really act on behalf of its citizens. That’s why the myth of King Arthur and the Court of Camelot is such a powerful ideal.

The ongoing squares of evolutionary energy at play now through the planets Uranus and Pluto, are dismantling the world’s governments and economies. The old PLUTOCRAT’S are bound to fall during these next few years. The Plutocracy in their covert surveillance is fighting to control every individual’s freedom and to grab everything on earth they can now, water, food, gold, oil that they can. This includes Muslim fundamentalists, that entire type of power control,that Fascist way of thinking, Big Brother attitude of the .0000%, the Federal Reserve, the New World Order which controls all the wealth and power in the world.  Remember Uranus and Pluto created the 60’s and were the planets that were responsible for the Renaissance in the 1500’s. Edward Snowden is acting as a personal intensifier of those two planets’ energies to inspire others to do the same.

On June 10 2013 the date that Edward’s interview with The Guardian was released, transiting Jupiter was at 26 degrees Gemini,and had just crossed Edward’s North Node opposite his Natal Neptune, the Galactic Center.

Edward Snowden has been granted asylum for a year in Russia where he must stay invisible because his life is in danger at every moment from CIA and other secret organizations who wish to see him dead.  Thomas Friedman wrote in the New York Times recently that Snowden could come back to the U.S. and get a fair trial. President Obama stating something similar in a press conference but it is not true. Snowden will never be able to come home and testify that what he did was for the public’s benefit as his charges will always be espionage. So don’t believe what the mainstream media tells you overtly at all. You know the secret game they are playing. 

In light of Edward’s natal chart, I believe Edward’s statement that what motivated him was not being able to support the system he worked for and live with himself knowing that he could personally make a difference by telling the truth, he knew the consequences of what he was doing. 

It takes a very selfless person to do what  Snowden did, who is also brave enough to act on his principles. I totally thank Edward Snowden for being able to be an individual to be strong enough to say NO- the buck stops here.  To really lay his life on the line for real liberty, democracy, freedom of speech. Everything that America Canada and the rest of the “FREE WORLD”  supposedly holds so dear. WAKE UP people. We all need to follow Edward Snowden’s lead in whatever ways we can. He is a great  role model and many young people will emulate him. We all need to have a real sense of ethics, honor, bravery, will and be smart enough to figure out how to get away with it. To me Edward Snowden is a modern Knight in Shining Armour.

He will continue to leak information very selectively and carefully. He does have hackers and other individuals who are helping him.  

Transiting Chiron in his 10th house of reputation is squaring Edward’s Ascendant, I believe he is symbolizing the world’s wounds in Pisces. He is feeling vulnerable of course.  Transiting Neptune in his 10th house is also squaring his Natal Jupiter. Neptune is the illusions and  delusions surrounding the truth he has revealed. Neptune rules film and one is in the works about his life.

On April 15 2013 there will be  a Lunar Eclipse at 25 degrees Libra which falls right on his Natal Pluto Saturn.  As the Moon represents the moods of the people, this indicates a time of further revelations and emotional changes for Edward. 

I send Edward many blessings and protection from the Galactic Center the big wigs that govern the evolutionary flow of this Galaxy.

11 thoughts on “Edward Snowden, traitor or hero? Astrology analysis

  1. Sorry Tara, but this subject of Snowden is just getting old.. he’s not even a man, but a boy who likes to stir up trouble. He is starting to realize that now, and that it’s costing him big time.

    This boy who thinks he is a man is a traitor. who does he thinks he is by releasing the “truth” because he thought it was HIS job to release it. that is called “narcissism”.

    when he took the job with Booz Allen Hamilton he already had it up his sleeve of what he was going to do. there was no unconscious motive, it was all set up and designed to steal information so that he could share with the Americans.

    sorry Tara, but when he signed on the dotted line and swore he would not share what he knew or about to find out, he already painted himself as a traitor and a liar.

    He hooked up with Glen Greenwald two months prior to Snowden’s interview with Booz Allen. When he was hired by the defense contractor, he did not take him long to go and find what he was looking for. it was merely to bring down the US government and to humiliate President Obama .

    you should be aware of all the people and undercover operations that was behind Glen Greenwald’s motive to bring this to light. Greenwald is a Libertarian and is connected to the famous Koch Brothers, Cato Institute, and has done work for the far right wing Heritage Foundation. He’s a Tea Party loyalist to the Libertarian movement and is connected to the far right extremists agenda. but because he has pissed off the far right and the conservatives, Greenwald only audience to appeal to, are the Socialists. how ironic is this? crazy I say!

    it was planned all along, and not to bring truth to the world as they are wanting people to believe. it’s all smoke and mirrors.

    I’m glad Edward Snowden is stuck in Russia. The very place that frounds on freedom of expression. maybe Snowden will regret his actions.

    He gives me the creeps. he is no hero, and is a traitor. he put his own country at risk, and it was all politically motivated.

    If he ever decides to come back here for a trial, he will be found guilty. so freedom in Russia maybe the best for him. He is delusional to think the Latin South American countries can offer him freedom either. Latin America, specifically Venuzeula is militarily corrupt, and it’s freedom of expression can land you in jail.

    USA has the best judicial system in the world. it’s the least corrupted. lololololol

    maybe after a year of living in Russia, he will come to appreciate what USA has. real freedom of expression.

  2. “Yes, I hear you say that look what he did! He did what many people with Saturn in Scorpio do; he lashed out at being ignored. It can be the most treacherous placement, for instincts {pun intended}. Do you still want to hire little Eddie to be on your corporate team Tara? Your competitors will thank you.”


    I meant natal; moon in Scorpio … hmmm … what was I thinking?


  3. you’re most certainly entitled to your own thoughts Tara, but I think you don’t have all the facts on Snowden and all that went on behind the scenes.

    Greenwald, Assange, and it’s Wikileaks are fame hogs. Their goals is to bring down Obama because it helps to bolster the Libertarian party. There are right wing Libertarian candidates Rand Paul is rumored to be behind this latest scandal on the NSA program.

    Rand Paul who is running for President took advantage of the IRS scandal and found out about the NSA program and decided to blow the lid.

    it’s okay you think Snowden did was right but for whom? it was all politically motivated.


    • hi Marie
      thanks for this. What isn’t politically motivated or manipulated these days. I truly dislike right wingers.
      But the point is also that American’s need to know that they are under surveillance. Freedom is scarce commodity these days.
      I am mainly seeing the act of disobeying the powers that be as what I feel is laudable but yes whom does he serve? Is very important.
      Thanks for your research. Tara


  4. Actually we’ve known about the NSA surveillance since 2001 post 9/11. not a peep or a complaint from anyone. we all accepted it as a new way of life.

    The leak was an attempt to bolster the libertarian brand.

    In late June, I said that the leak was an attempt to bolster the libertarian brand.

    I mentioned some of the posturing by and for Rand Paul. Now it’s becoming clear that this is the case. Reposting the information from the link and adding to it.

    Ron Paul: ‘We Should Be Thankful’ For Edward Snowden

    Ron Paul Channel’s very first show: Interview with Greenwald

    Assange/Wikileaks talk about who they admire…wait for it…& the answer is Ron/Rand Paul & Matt Drudge

    Assange Says Rand Paul Is The Only Hope For America

    The Rand Paul moment

    By: Rich Lowry

    This is the kind of issue Rand Paul was born and (literally) raised to raise holy hell over. And it isn’t just the NSA program lately. The leak about the program came on the heels of revelations that the IRS was singling out tea party groups for extra scrutiny and invasive questions, and on the heels of the AP and James Rosen investigations.

    At least for some stretch of 2015, Rand Paul could well be the Republican front-runner, tapping into grass-roots enthusiasm on the model of Howard Dean in 2003. And it’s not inconceivable that he could go further than that famous representative of “the Democratic wing of the Democratic Party,” although the field will presumably be very crowded on the right.

    Paul has a built-in online and grass-roots network of the sort it takes years to build. In fact, it did. His father built it, and now he’s working to expand it in his extensive travels. Over those years, his father welcomed into his fold cranks and haters, and one of Rand Paul’s quiet messages is that he has his father’s core convictions, without the loathsome baggage.
    I’m far from a Rand Paul-ite. I don’t think there was ever any threat of Americans being droned sitting at cafes, nor do I think drones are the scariest invention in the history of flight. I’m not where Paul is on foreign or national security policy, and I doubt his libertarianism has as much cross-over appeal in blue states as he hopes. (Blue state moderates like government, alas.)…libertarianism is a significant strand on the right. It should be represented, and represented well. By and large, Rand Paul does that.

    Anyone underestimating him in 2016 does so at their peril.


    They are hoping that Paul can ride this wave to 2016.

    Another NSA “Bombshell” Starts to Fizzle Out, as Greenwald Pushes Government Conspiracy Theory

    Rand Paul: ‘I’m Not A Firm Believer In Democracy…It Gave Us Jim Crow’

    The New Republic’s Julia Ioffe has a big profile with quite the cover photo on 2016 hopeful and Tea Party favorite Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) that went online Monday.

    Ioffe reports on a little publicized remark Paul made at Simmons College, a historically black college in Louisville, where Paul sat with students and professors.

    “I’m not a firm believer in democracy,” he said in April. “It gave us Jim Crow.”

    Here’s the quote in its full context:

    And rather than try to prove that the Republican Party had been good to blacks once upon a time, he focused on how the Republican Party could be good to them today. He talked about decriminalizing drug offenses and getting rid of the mandatory sentencing minimums that put so many young black men in jail. He talked about fixing the local school system, about not abolishing Pell grants “as long as it’s in the context of spending what you have.” To approving nods, he talked about how urban renewal had really meant “urban destruction” and about how “they tore down a lot of black businesses so people would go to white stores.” He found that this crowd, if not totally convinced, was receptive. Though he would still not give them a definitive answer on his position on the Civil Rights Act, he did say that he believed federal intervention had been justified. “I’m not a firm believer in democracy,” he explained. “It gave us Jim Crow.”

    In 2010 Paul controversially said that he oppossed certain aspects of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, specifically the provision that prohibits private businesses from excluding anyone on the basis of race. He has since backed away from this comment.
