Robin Williams, daemons the gift and the tragedy

I stayed up very late last night as I felt I needed to look at Robin William’s astrology chart and get that out. I realized I missed a few things so I will continue and refer back to that.

Yes the entire world is in shock and still mourning. Earlier today graphic details about Robin’s suicide by hanging were broadcast leaving many responding with indignation and anger. I am continuing to send prayers to Robin’s wife and three children. We seem to be united in our loss and deeply grateful to Robin for his amazing gifts and talents which brought so much joy to millions of lives.

Film director Chris Colombus said this of Robin “His performances were unlike anything any of us had ever seen, they came from some spiritual and otherworldly place. He truly was one of the few people who deserved the title of ‘genius.’

Everyone is rewatching Robin’s films. His career ran the gamut from side-splitting never out of date comedy to serious drama. In Robin’s career and life we see the twin sides of Comedy and Tragedy mirroring each other.

Robin was a legendary comedian, serious actor, humanitarian and father. Yes as tragic as his suicide is, it is also a wake up call of the amount of grief those struggling with major depression and  addictions deal with every day until they cannot fight back and sink into the black depths and are driven to end their own lives.  I just realized perhaps Robin was also taking some sort of awful type of anti-depressant like Zoloft or Paxil which actually makes people feel more suicidal as it only masks the root cause.

Serious capable help for those feeling the least bit suicidal and withdrawn should be free, accessible and easy to get. Williams was very open about having life time depressions, his addictions to cocaine and alcohol which he had conquered and for which he sought help in rehab just a few months ago.

It doesnt matter how successful, wealthy, talented or applauded one is if one has depression, addictions and mood disorders one will always be battling their own demons.

The demons are daemon’s, yes like Matt Daemon’s name, I love the name destiny and synchronicity. In ancient Greece the daemon, according to James Hillman was also a Guardian Angel. The deamon bestows the gift but also contains a dark side.   Someone of Robin Williams’s dazzling talents, especially performing comedy, needing to be ON, with a seeming multiple personality those highs also come with equal lows.

Why are people surprised at this?  We all have our own individual dark sides, it counterbalances the light. But when the dark overshadows then we are in trouble. For every star that rises one falls.

Those who live large public lives- stars, musicians, artists, comedians  also counterbalance that OUT THERE personality with deep insecurity. It is the rare person who leads a healthy psychologically balanced stable life in this position what with the archetypal nature of the larger than life fame, wealth, power and status which come from receiving such gifts they have bestowed upon them.

Actors and comedians hide behind their roles. Apparently Robin had been a shell of himself recently. He didnt even sleep in the same bed with his wife apparently on the night before he ended his life. Robin was such a great actor that he apparently hid the level of his depressions even from those closest to him. Not to blame anyone.

We all wish Robin were still alive. He gave us so much, we are addicted to his energy, to how he made us laugh, to  that beautiful soulful very real and humble smile. Stories about his selfless gifts are coming out as he never publicized them. He was  a real mensch.

He had just finished a number of films as recently as the end of July. Another Night at the Museum with Ben Stiller will be out before this years end.

Hindsight is 20 20.

As mentioned in my delineation of Robin’s natal chart that he was under tremendous pressure this year from the GRAND CARDINAL CROSS and if I was his astrology consultant I would have made him go to rehab and stay there knowing the devastating effects these planets would be having on him, plus Saturn in his 12th plus Neptune.

I have plenty of clients who are ordinary people who are also experiencing devastating losses financially and emotionally from being under similar GCC energies in their own lives who are feeling like they want to end it, that they see no positive future anymore. I check on them,pray for them and make sure they get the proper help.

Out of this great tragedy and loss is a WaKE  up  call. Many people struggle with depression, it is an epidemic. We need to look at our entire culture which fosters this split in our psyches, in our lives, from all directions, the impossibly high standards which one is supposed to achieve and maintain. The narcissistic ego dominance. The superficiality, the need to hide ones true self and feelings of insecurity and vulnerability which are simply part of being human.

James Hillman wrote about this in a marvellous book which is really a lengthy interview called  “We’ve had 100 years of Psychotherapy and the world’s getting worse.”  Hillman blames society on every level for creating this split in the human psyche. He applauds AA and champions local community support to enhance individuals sense of wellness and belonging. And for people to point that finger at the society we live on and not blame the victim.

Robins astrology transits

Robin had his Moon and North Node conjunct in PISCES in the 4th house. The 4th house represents the roots of ones childhood and ones  life at it’s end. Neptune the  planet which rules Pisces spirituality, delusions, illusion. addictions escapism, Bliss, is sitting very close to Robin’s Moon and North Node. Indicating that Robin wanted to go HOME, to Heaven where he began.

My message from ROBIN ON THE OTHER SIDE

I do medium work. I have been tracking him and I see that Robin is watching his heart is beaming with joy. He is free of his pain now. He asks us to forgive him for the grief and suffering he has caused  his wife and children and everyone in the world who he knows completely feels genuine love and grief for him and how he suffered in desperation. Suicide hotlines have been broadcasting themselves more because of this.  “Please forgive me and take strength from the joy and laughter I brought you. I love you.”

But there for the Grace of God go I. I know some of us would have been willing to take the bullet in exchange for Robin’s life. We are all part of Robin Williams. We all experience the joys and suffering behind the masks we where. Robin Williams was one of the greatest Fool;s ever. In the Tarot the Fool is the enlightened one, the eternal child.  I keep crying about this great loss of one human who lived an archetypal life which  we are all partaking in.
