Stan Lee will be remembered by millions of people for his lasting effect on the culture, literature, publishers, imagination and media as the creator of 20th and 21st-century, Archetypal heroes and heroines of comic books like Spiderman,The Fantastic Four, Spiderman, the Hulk, The X-men, The Silver Surfer, The Avengers, Black Panther and all the rest. Stan Lee was a real-life superhero and his astrology chart show it.

Let’s take a look at Stan’s extraordinary life and how the planets were affecting him at his death.

Stan Lee born Stanley Martin Lieber on December 28, 1922, in Manhattan New York and died around 10:00 am November 12, 2018, in Los Angeles California. 

Stan Lee Astrology

Stan was an earthy hard-working practical mountain climbing Capricorn, ruled by planet Saturn whose great fame came later in his life. Born with the Sun at Zero degrees Capricorn this is known as The World Point and many famous people have planets on this famous Winter solstice point which symbolizes the return of the Light a sign of Faith and Hope.

Furthermore, Stan was born with his Sun is OUT OF BOUNDS- he is a born wild card.

Mercury in Capricorn is Out of Bounds and right at the Mid-heaven

This typifies many of Lee’s superheroes like Spiderman and the Hulk they are outcasts, out of the bounds from the “norm.”

Mercury was Stan’s crowning planet because of his wild imagination and way of thinking, his gift of communication in the place of worldly renown. Mercury is the planet of intellect, communications, tricksters and those in the sales business. Mercury is doing his own thing in a serious way in square to Saturn which would be Stan’s ticket to fame and fortune. 

These two planets out-of-bounds guaranteed Stan’s worldly success but through long hard Capricorn work and testing. 

Stan also has Ceres, the planet of mothering, nourishment, and rounding in Sagittarius on the Galactic Center that great source of cosmic intelligence conjunct his already very exalted Sun. Stan’s purpose was to develop his career  as a form of imaginative creative nourishment to feed the world’s children the highest philosophical and optimistic yearnings. 

Moon in wild rebellious Aquarius

He was an outsider, again a characteristic of all of his superheroes shared. Stan rebelled against the old restrictive norms of the comics industry. A man whose ideas were universal, rebellious, and different and for those who feel like they are loners and who change society. Moon is opposite Neptune the planet of artists, dreamers, geniuses with incredible imaginations, spiritual and dreamy.

Neptune in Leo in his 5th house of creativity

This is a natural Leo placement indicating why and how Stan would influence billions of people with his creative imagination. He would be the King of creativity with his and his creations- his children {5th house} naturally bold and dramatic perfect for movies and the Big screen which Neptune governs. Stan was a big kid himself and Leo is the sign of those with big hearts, who naturally rise to command respect. Leo is the sign of the child. Comic books were always considered kids stuff. With his Moon in Aquarius Stan nurtured the child within with wild tales of superheroes on grand adventures in the galaxies.

Stan used his incredible imagination to transform the world by delving into the shadow sides of his characters. His superheroes had souls and doubts and deep psychological wounds. He made a ton of money (Venus in Scorpio in 8th} from all of this because everyone could relate- Moon is the public in Aquarius- is the tribe.

Stan produces 5 Zodiac novels based on the Chinese system

Stan had a Grand Water Trine 

Jupiter in Scorpio in his 7th house of business marriage and all “others.” trines Mars Uranus conjunction in Pisces in the12th house.

Stan must have channeled these superheroes.Mars Uranus in Pisces trined by Jupiter is a warrior for compassion for all religions. Stan wrote in the 60’s against racism.  Mars is action and superheroes are action heroes. Stan’s superhero and heroine characters have that Pisces empathetic compassionate, self-sacrificing nature.

The X-Men are weird freaks- very Uranian. Spiderman and all heroes who get their powers from radiation have Uranus or Pluto markings.Those planets are trine to Pluto in Cancer right on his IC one of the most powerful points in the chart- this is his roots foundation childhood and home. The combo of two personal and 2 transpersonal planets which in effect are his emotional substance is very strong. 

Speaking of Iron Man

Saturn representing Stan’s father and his own karma and areer is in Libra right on his Descendant, point of interaction with all “others” in the world. Stan was a socially engaging heavyweight. A very loyal man, married to his wife Joan for 69 years. Stan was a charming man, he took his need to be popular seriously and did this through his work. Saturn in Libra is exalted, combining social grace with hard work. He wanted everyone to like him and his work. Saturn’s metal is Iron. 

Chiron the Wounded Healer in Aries

This is Stan’s approach. The nerdy kid could become a super hero. This is how Stan power punched his way into the world. Being a brash defender, a warrior superhero with Mars ruled Ascendant. Stan’s Aries Ascendant meant he spontaneously jumped into things, he had incredible reserves of energy and drive. He worked right up until his last day on earth. 

Chiron in Aries on the Ascendant

A description of this placement would be exactly the vulnerable wounded warrior hero. This is what endeared Lee’s Universe of Superheroes to us -they were vulnerable.  

Joseph Campbell the Hero With A  Thousand Faces

The historian Joseph  Campbell who wrote The Hero With A Thousand Faces says “A hero ventures forth from the world of common day into a region of supernatural wonder: fabulous forces are there encountered and a decisive victory is won: The hero comes back from this mysterious adventure with the power to bestow boons on his fellow man.”  Campbell said that comic books are the modern archetypal gods and goddesses in this centuries form.


Chiron Saturn Mercury and Pluto form a Cardinal Grand Cross on all the angles

This makes Stan so incredibly powerful in his work, in his drive and in his soul expression. Very few people are born with charts such as these. No wonder he excelled so much.


Stan Lee’s catchphrase has long been “Excelsior” a Latin word meaning ever upward or to excel, a totally Capricorn phrase if there ever was one. It’s also the word on the Seal of the State of New York where Stan was born. Also the name of a popular short poem written in 1841 by American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Stan was very well read and originally intended to write the Great American novel which he did in a different form. 

Stan also wrote a series of books The ZODIAC LEGACY

Based on Chinese Astrology which uses the 12 constellations.

South Node in the 12th in Pisces 

At at 24 degrees, this is the mark of an old soul, a Bodhisattva, someone who has done a lot of spiritual work in past lives. It is considered to be a blessing, a protection, like Angels watching over you. Pisces and the 12th house are places of seclusion. I see Stan as a Catholic monk in a past life, cloistered in and diligently writing beautiful gilded letters transcribing the Bible in the 12th Century. 

North Node in Virgo in the 6th house

Stan’s highest spiritual goal was to be of service through his work. He was a meticulous person. He took all of his unconscious, dreaming imagination {oposite Pisces South node} and put them to work.

The Nodes square Ceres on the Galactic Center and his Sun

This is a very karmic connection. Stan chose to rise to the occasion in his life and fulfill his highest soul expression and to inspire many others to be everyday heroes and heroines. 

At his death

Stan Lee was 95 and had been battling illness for the last year. He has greatly missed his wife who passed away July 6, 2017.

At his death the same planets he had in his birth were mirrored by transiting Saturn, Lord of death on his Natal Sun and transiting Pluto at 19 Capricorn square to his Natal Saturn in Libra.  As he loved his wife so much this aspect indicates a soulful happy return to her again. 

Transiting retrograde Venus in Libra was trining Stan’s Moon in Aquarius

This is another sign of returning to your beloved wife.

The Sun in Scorpio is conjunct to Stan’s Natal Venus trining his South Node in Pisces. This indicates he has completed what he came to do in this lifetime.

Neptune trine’s Stan’s Grand water trine

the planet of spirituality endings and creative dreamers at 13 degrees Pisces conjunct to his Natal Uranus trining Jupiter in Scorpio and Pluto in Cancer. Stan was having pneumonia and the grand water trine would indicate death from that and a viral infection.

Stan Lee’s creative superheroes will live on as all Archetypes do in everyone’s imagination forever. Projects and more cameo appearances in his films are still to debut. Thanks Stan. May you RIP.
