Robin Williams Life and death, Astrology

I know I, like millions of others are feeling terribly heart broken and sad that Robin Williams who engendered millions of tears of laughter and joy passed away too soon on August 11 at age 63 of an apparent suicide. I adored Robin from his manic Spaceman Mork from  Ork, as  Popeye in his first major film. I loved him in The Bird Cage. We all know of Robin’s amazing skills as the fastest stand up improv comedian ever.

 

Robin Williams quote Tara Greene

Robin always seemed very unpretentious, warm, raising a lot of money for charities, he excelled as a serious actor and won an Oscar as well as numerous awards for his serious acting skills. Robin delighted children and adults alike as the voice of the Genii in Disney’s Aladdin or playing Peter Pan, or Mrs. Doubtfire. Personally I loved Robin in the Fisher King and also in an amazing spiritual movie he made called what Dreams may come which seems highly relevant now. It Seems like Robin has been a star forever he was part of the scenery of everyones lives.

Yes he had addictions- to cocaine when his instant fame wealth and success came in the late 70’s. Alcohol as well. Robin recently went to rehab to regain sobriety after 20 years of being clean. I had heard rumors that he was bankrupt and his recent TV series The Crazy Ones was cancelled after one season. I felt sad that such a great talent who had brought so much joy and laughter to millions of people  would be bankrupt and fragile. He was known to have bi-polar disorder.The coroner will have to investigate the cause of Robin’s death. Whatever the cause, Robin was a a huge talent, the likes of which we may never see again.

So lets look at who Robin Williams was in his life and why his tragic sudden early death occurred now. Aug 11 at 12:02 pm  when he was pronounced dead in Marin County California. He leaves behind his wife of only 3 years and  3 children.

A Cancer Sun born July 21 1951 at 1:34 pm Chicago Illinois to a wealthy family, he was the great great grandson of a Mississippi senator. He managed to get a full scholarship to the prestigious Juilliard school in New York.

Robin Williams astrology Tara Greene

 

Robin was a gentle, emotional nurturing soul who needed a lot of emotional security behind that manic nature of his, born in late Cancer with his Sun in the 9th house which is asssociated with the natural sign of Sagittarius famed for its good humor. His Sun was barely aspected except for an onerous Quincunx to CHIRON the wounded healer exactly on the Galactic Center at 27 degrees of Sagittarius in Robin’s 2nd house of resources, money, and self identity! Chiron on the Galactic Center makes one an open vulnerable wounded receptacle for everything coming down the Galactic pipe.

Robin signed on to be the GALACTIC CLOWN, the cosmic fool and wounded healer who needed to make the cosmos laugh in order to deal with his own probably very needy insecure nature in what he felt was an absurd universe.

As would be expected from someone who achieved super star status Robin has Mercury the planet of communication right on his MC the world fame position, conjunct PLUTO in LEO sign of leaders, actors, bright shining Stars. Robins soul, Pluto, was connected exactly to his ability to communicate at that red hot lightning fast speed and it all came right from his soul and heart. We could all feel it.

Robin’s MOON was conjunct to his North Node in PISCES in his 4th house. His Moon was his mother, his instincts, feelings, imagination, dreams. To have the Moon connected to the North Node is a very karmic position especially in PISCES the most spiritual of all signs. He had to manifest his souls spiritual purpose.

In Pisces, this is being the chameleon, and having no boundaries it was easy for Robin to become anyone, his imagination was unbounded. This is also where his addictive patterns began. Robin’s Moon in Pisces meant he was a total psychic sponge and very empathetic with his Mother and everyone in his surroundings as a child. If his natural sensitivity was not fostered by his mother in his childhood then that energy became an addictive need. Moon in the 4th house could mean that Robin was probably crushed in his childhood and a part of himself was extremely private. Moon and North Node in the 4th house in Pisces indicates the need for unconditional self love and acceptance. This is also where Robin’s  child like innocent energy sprung from, in some ways he was the eternal child, like Peter Pan who he portrayed in the movie as a grown up Pan.

NORTH NODE Moon in Pisces can be lifetime addictions issues. Pisces can be creative geniuses and also failed dreamers. Escapism is one means of handling painful emotions,  coping by using drugs, alcohol, busyness. Robin was very philanthropic and charitable as befits someone with this prime Pisces nature.

Robin took his empathic, sensitive, lunar nature and transformed it  as a means to express his enormous talents through his natal Venus -planet of love, beauty, arts in Virgo- the detailed perfectionist, workaholic, conjunct his SOUTH Node in the 10th house of fame.

Karmically this would indicate that Robin had been,in a past life,before he was born, a wealth intellectual, land owner, an accountant, or magistrate, Lord or intellectual,  someone of wealth and means. He was already familiar with power and fame. 

Robins Mars was in Cancer at 11 degrees, in the 8th Scorpionic house  conjunct URANUS. This is where Robin’s rapid fire manic helter skelter stand up free form jokes spring from. Robin felt like an alien, an outsider. No wonder that he first gained fame on TV as the alien MORK from Ork. He was naturally a radical, stimulated from the higher octave of Mercury’s communicatons, in the 8th house of transformation, resources, power, control,  shadows. Both planets are very close to the U.S. Sun at 13 degrees making everyone in America especially adore Robins energy and wildly original exuberant nature.

Mars  is the T-Square focal point for Neptune in Libra in the 11th house of Aquarian open mindedness, cutting through old paradigms and Jupiter in Aries in the 5th house of MANIC rapid fire, self- made creativity, self-expression, giving love childlike innocence.  

The Neptune Jupiter opposition is extremely creative, sensitive, imaginative and dreamy. Jupiter rules humor, optimism, fun. Jupiter in Aries gave Robin his seemingly inexhaustible copious comedic energy, fueled by Mars, ruler of Aries. He was a comedic cosmic warrior .

Saturn symbolized his father, his own maturity, his career. In late Virgo in the 11th house it is square to his Chiron in Sagittarius. Robin was a very serious, hard working perfectionist, never a slouch. He was very responsible with his work. He was prodigiously intelligent as well, with a sense of being open, and exploring new realms in his career and characterizations. Robins role again was to embody- Virgo, the cosmic FOOL, the innocent child, the clown who is crying on the inside.

SCORPIO ASCENDANT-  

A Scorpio Ascendant give Robin those intense often sad looking beaming blue eyes, much intensity, passion, enormous drives for sex, money, power, control, obsessiveness, and charisma.  Robin definitely had a dark probing side, he wanted to take himself and others into the depths of  the shadows through humour. He was driven by his own shadows as well. He would relentless pursue whatever he wanted until he got it. Life has never really been easy for Robin but he kept it a secret and only those who really knew him saw the depths of his dark side. He felt a lot of pain.  

I had just been trying to locate an amazing film of Robin’s,one of my favourites just last week to show at the dream workshop I was teaching,called What Dreams May Come an amazingly spiritual film about death, suicide  and the afterlife made in 1998. You should check it out.

DEATH and the stars on August 11th how were the planets affecting Robin?

Robin had been under the tremendous pressure of the GRAND CARDINAL CROSS for the past year especially.

In April at the height of the four planet crucifix, Robin was being hit by  PLUTO and URANUS plus Jupiter and Mars squaring opposing and conjuncting his Natal MARS URANUS, NEPTUNE JUPITER opposition. Thats an 8 planet cosmic traffic jam of epic porportions.

Robin had Jupiter on his Natal Mars Uranus conjunction making him unpredictably moody in Cancer. Transiting Mars in Libra squaring that bundle and near his natal Neptune {addictions, delusion, illusion}.

Uranus was sitting exactly on Robins Natal Jupiter in Aries, while Pluto Lord of the Underworld was transiting his 2nd house, opposing his natal Mars and Uranus with Jupiter there. Pluto was squaring his Natal Jupiter in Aries with Uranus transiting that and also squaring transitting Mars in Libra and natal Neptune. That’s a huge stress. 

SATURN had been moving through Robins 12th house until very recently for the past year.

This is always a depressing transit, one feels old, tired, leaden, heavy. Robin was being tested karmically as he was prepping for  a rebirth cycle. Saturn had only recently crossed his Ascendant and was squaring his PLUTO – death, rebirth, the shadow in his world fame position. I had heard that Robin was bankrupt and his last TV show was not successful, he must have been feeling very stressed, must have felt as if he were drowning, losing his Leo pride and position of power and influence.  Saturn  was making him feel desperate, empty, foresaken, alone.

Venus was sitting on Robins Natal Sun indicating a sense of returning to love, to a place of comfort, security, nurturing, safety.

NEPTUNE planet of addictions had also reached his Natal MOON and near his NORTH Node in his 4th house of his mot  private self, his childhood, fears, addictions, illusions, denial, fantasy.  Neptune was of course opposite his South Node and his Natal Venus in Virgo  indicating he longed to return home.

The Moon was actually in Pisces when he passed, so this was a final New MOON cycle for Robin. Passing away on a Pisces Moon indicates that Robin went back to a place of bliss, to his origins, to the Heaven world from which he entered 63 years ago, back to the place of  oneness, free at last.  

Just as at the end of the  movie Aladdin when Robin as the Genii is freed, Robin is now |”Free at last.” 

I have been crying as I wrote this article. Strange that I was thinking so much about Robin and that movie. His great gifts and force in the world feels like it is tangibly gone now. I wish him and his family great healing. You will always be remembered Robin. Laughter is the greatest medicine and you were one of the best doctor’s around.

  3. For some reason, I feel Mr. Robin Williams is in a much better place now. But what I gained from this article is to KEEP PUSHING. When we feel like we are sinking- it is God teaching us something. The sun will come out tomorrow. We need to be kind to ourselves and let ourselves off the hook. This reminds me of Oprah since she left her show and created her channel. Everyone had written her and the OWN Network off… but she weathered one of the biggest perceived failures of her career and viewership is increasing.

    So many of us gain our self-worth off of our careers and networth… we almost self-medicate with a career and hope it brings us happiness. But that is not so. Robin Williams was a living legend, but it is his soul we recognized. I hope we all take something from this.

    To anyone reading this: we all feel the depths and valleys of life. We are in this together. And you will reach the other side. Keep the faith.
