Malala Yousafzai, karmic horoscope from Tara Greene

With her book out “I am Malala” and her recent Noble Peace Prize nomination. I wondered what sixteen  year old Pakistani Malala Yousafzai’s natal Horoscope was like.  Malala has had a very extreme life so far. Since 2009 Malala had written a blog for the BBC about life under the Taliban. Because she has been an outspoken advocate for girl’s education, which the Taliban had forbidden, she was hunted down and shot in the head on October 9 2012 returning from school. After being shot in the left eye and her shoulder, she was rushed to emergency surgery and flown to England where she has made an amazing recovery. She is a miracle.


Please note that transiting JUPITER which rules publishing, luck, expansion, traveling, good karma is now exactly on her NATAL Sun as her book  is published. She is having one of her best years.

Malala has become a moderate Muslim Feminist heroine in the West, she has met President Obama, spoke at the U.N.  and left Jon Stewart speechless on the Daily Show  where she spoke passionately  about every female’s right to an education. She understands that this  leads to women’s empowerment which is what the Taliban fear.  Yet she is criticized in her native country and by political writers because they see her being used as a PR tool which avoids looking at the entire political situation. Many Pakistani’s feel that in spite of her fame not much has changed even though her presence helped ratify PAKISTAN’s first Right To Education Bill.  

Malala was born JULY 12 1997 birth time unknown, in Mingora, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province Pakistan.

Malala Yousafzai Astrology Tara GreeneMALALA birth chart and transits October 9 2012 when she was shot

MALALA was quoted on the Jon Stewart DAILY SHOW October 10 2013 “Women are more powerful than men.”

She is  a Cancer Sun with the Moon at 13 degrees Libra in square. She is  a traditionaL caring, emotional woman, a nurturer. Her home and family,  the Sun and Moon are very important to her. Moon in Libra- she is poised, emotionally detached, she is a natural  ambassador and wordy peacemaker.

Malala’s karma about who she is, is write large all over her chart. She has asteroid JUNO conjunct her Sun. I feel Juno describes FEMININE genius.

Her birth chart shows what is traditionally described in  Vedic-Indian astrology and Western Astrology as  “malefic aspects.” VERY DIFFICULT.

Malala has Mars- war- defenses, conjunct the Moon. Literally- aggression towards the Feminine, the Moon.- Agression/defensive/warriors connected to her emotions, her soul, her unconscious, her FEMININE self.  She will strive to  achieve Libran balance. 

Mars and Moon are opposite SATURN in Aries at 20 degrees= this is THE MOST DIFFICULT ASPECT to have. EXtremely karmic-Violence,  between the masculine and the Feminine. Saturn in Aries- is violence, sudden aggression, weapons of war,opposite her Moon, because she is FEMALE. SAturn is  karma. Malala takes it in her HEAD which Aries rules.

Aries is always ruled by Mars which is weakened in Libra, they are in a mutual reception, which helps her. It could have been worse.

And MARS opposing SATURN both square Malala’s SUN in CAncer.

This is her karmic Signature. To take the hit. Her raison d’être the Cancer Sun ,the most traditionally Feminine of all the Signs, she is a symbol for all girls-  Saturn in Aries- I walk my own way. Don’t tell me what to do.

She also has Asteroid VESTA conjunct her SATURN. Vesta is incredible focus and dedication and doing whatever it takes.

Malala also has CHIRON the Wounded Healer at 26 degrees Libra also opposite that karmic SATURN in ARIES, thorough being wounded, she becomes a great healer for others. This is ARCHETYPAL.

CHIRON the wounded healer, at 26 degrees of LIBRA in the 1st house of her identity is at the apex of a T-square with her Sun, her source and planet NEPTUNE and Asteroid ATHENA- again another head reference, Athena, Goddess of wisdom, was a war Goddess, famed for her intelligence, she sprung fully armoured from her father Zeus’s head. The Greek city of Athens is named in her honor.

NEPTUNE at 28 degrees Capricorn Retrograde. Neptune is the planet of dreamers, idealists, visionaries. Neptune rules images, glamour, Hollywood. Neptune in Capricorn’s bring spiritual compassion and faith into Capricorn traditional corporate structure. Neptune is illusion and Malala has spoken that her real self the one she was before she was shot feels unreal to her now. She has become famous.

MALALA is a messenger on the world’s stage and of course she has MERCURY in LEO, sign of public speakers, stars, leaders, passionate communicators, she wears her heart on her sleeve. She has Mercury exactly opposite to planets URANUS in AQUARIUS which it rules at 7 degrees Retrograde.This aspect literally brings sudden change, Uranus, in the way one acts- LEO in the world. 

Malala is a natural rule breaker, a revolutionary, a rebel. She wrote a blog at 11 years old. Uranus rules the Internet. Malala is a natural messenger for change. She probably never felt she fit in. She is  a messenger of Higher Consciousness.

She has MERCURY conjunct her VENUS IN LEO. The girl was born to be leader, who speaks from the heart-, for women’s rights- Venus in LEO also opposite URANUS. Brilliant insights and a true Blue FEMINIST and leader.

JUPITER, planet of education, foreigners, religious fanatics, expansion, trust, good luck is at 20 degrees of Aquarius also Retrograde opposite Venus in Leo. Malala speaks out for women- Venus/education and revolution. It’s all there all over her natal chart. She was lucky to not have died from the shot.

Malala has PLUTO at 3 degrees Retrograde of Sagittarius; sign of Teachers, higher education, foreigners, travelling, religious fanatics, philosophy, freedom, good humour, optimism, faith. PLuto symbolizes the SOUL, and so Malala’s soul is here to educate, to uplift, to show the way and help people aim higher.

MALALA’s highest spiritual goal, what she is aiming towards is her NORTH NODE at 21 degrees VIRGO, an earth sign of service to others. Analytical, perfectionists, hard-working, humble, intelligence. She is a natural communicator and writer, she loves nature. 

Her SOUTH NODE or past life is 21 degrees PISCES. Malala came into this life from a very spiritual perspective, she came to play the role of a martyr, Jesus Christs’ symbol is Pisces the sign of the martyr.  She is inherently spiritual, compassionate, forgiving. 

Malala has LILITH at 12 degrees VIRGO directly opposite Ceres at 13 degrees PISCES. She also embodies the archetypal Mother- Ceres/ whore/Lilith split.  This means she is an archetypal holder of that projection. The Taliban are trying to enforce that ancient split. Lilith is the original Woman before EVE, she is nature, wild, free, sexual, untamed. Who became feared by all Patriarchal religions, suppressed and distorted. The story continues.


the transiting SUN was in Libra in square to her natal Sun and opposite Saturn. This is like looking through a gunsight.

PLUTO was at 7 degrees Capricorn in square to her natal MARS in LIBRA and her MOON at 13 degrees Libra. Again another karmic set up shot.

Transiting Mars at 1 degree of Sagittarius was conjunct her natal PLUTO. A  difficult violent soul changing aspect was in play.

SATURN was at zero degrees of SCORPIO and had  just crossed her natal Chiron at 26 degrees of LIBRA triggering that. Saturn was square to her Uranus and her Mercury a sudden unexpected chaotic message.

The transiting North Node at 26 degrees Scorpio was inconjunct to her Natal Saturn and sextile (60 degrees) Malala’s natal North Node at 21 degrees VIRGO. Again this is a setting up of karmic event to click. Malala’s natal North Node is quincunx  (150 degrees also called inconjunct) to her Saturn. The Transit creates what’s called a yod, a finger of GOD aspect pointing to her karmic Saturn in Aries. Clearly the time was ripe. 

Malala is one incredible modern role model.  She is the most famous 16 year on the planet right now.  I believe she will continue to change the world. She is still a Taliban target and must be very carefull especially as she has become so famous. Specifically she has to be careful of being poisoned or gassed in the nest year.
