Mars square Pluto toxic masculinity is dyingi

As I was writing the titles desire and deathstrucion was what I thought. Mars is male sexual desire anger action defences.

Pluto is death decay the unconscious, the shadow the psyche recycling toxic transformation power secrets control obsessions.

As Sigmund Freud noted: sex is the most powerful unconscious force that guides our lives. Because sex is the physical-biological and spiritual desire for life to keep creating life.

Freud also noted the death wish in psychology. An anti-life self-destructive inverted urge.

These two planets the red and the black Co-rule Scorpio. The new Moon in Scorpio on the 18th had Sun Moon Venus Vesta and Jupiter in Scorpio. A quintuply scorpionic powerhouse of change.

The news is reflecting the changes in toxic masculinity in America right now. The U. S. always reflects these planetary evolutionary changes the most.

Pluto destroys old outworn things. In Capricorn Pluto destroys the old boys corporate structures which were built by them for them.

This is such a positive energy. I feel elated to see the planets especially Pluto’s with Mars’s help creating long term effects literally destroying that old boys patriarchal sexual energy.

Mars and the North Node at 18 degrees Leo make a wide Finger of God aspect to Chiron in Pisces at 24 degrees. Yes women are feeling their wounds and expressing their pain from rape sexual and emotional abuse. Women will not be martyrs anymore for men’s libidinous unconscious demons.

This is all good. Death creates new life.

Where can you bring death to create new life for you personally?

The other side of Mars-Pluto is out of control anger rage destruction war and power struggles at the top of the food chain.

Be careful when using dangerous tools. Fire bombing terrorism retaliations and unconscious desires cannot be controlled.

Consciousness is the way. Get to know your inner demons. What is known cannot run you unconsciously. Deep scavengering of your shadows is recommended.

Pluto is unearthing the beasts.

Venus in Scorpio is approaching a sextile to Pluto. Women are empowering themselves. Women must be careful that their own shadows and unconscious lust for Power and control does not overtake them in a backlash as well.

Mars in LIBRA desires balance. In Venus sign they are in mutual reception and greatly helpful.

This is all good. A new balance in sexual relations is being born.

Oscar Pistorius trial- a tragic, karmic love story by Tara Greene

I love name destiny. Something that I intuitively noticed as a teenager. The aptly named- Oscar- because he deserves one? PIST orius is someone who is PISSED OFF notoriously.

I started writing this article last year when the terrible murder of his girlfriend Reeva happened on Valentine’s day. Let’s revisit the murder night through the Astrology lens. Look at the chemistry of Reeva Steenkamp and Oscar and the future outcome of his trial.

Reeva Steenkamp and Oscar Pistorius in happier times, hero of South Afirca

OSCAR Pistorius born November 22 1986 known as The BLADE RUNNER.

He has two MASTER NUMBERS in his birthdate 11/22. 11= STRENGTH 22= THE FOOL

Oscar Pistorius Astrology Tara Greene

Oscar is a double amputee Olympic and Paralympic runner, nicknamed BLADE RUNNER who has won gold medals in races in the Olympics in 2011 and made history in 2012 as the first double leg amputee to run with non disabled athletes.

On Feb 14 2013 Oscar at 3:20 am the initial call for help came from Oscar about the “accidental shooting.” Pistorius claims he thought he shot a burgler in his bathroom through a closed door and not his model girlfriend Reeva Steencamp. The paramedics and police arrive at 4: 15 am to find Reeva already dead and that Pistorius has moved her body from the crime scene. The number one NO NO in a crime scene. There is evidence that he called his father first to get his PR machine working before the police arrived.  Because of his celebrity status he was granted bail and allowed to travel outside S.A. to compete.

His Trial runs March 3-20 in Pretoria South Africa and is televised live. He has pleaded not guilty.

OSCAR born at 10:30 a.m. has his Sun is at the Most critical of all degrees 29 SCORPIO, The FIXED WATER sign of death, riches, extreme emotions, rebirth, obsessive, fanatical, power and control freak, secrecy in the 10th house of worldly fame and renown. His MOON in fiery passionate, I AM THE KING, vain, power-hungry, ambitious, fixed, LEO. In the 6th house he has worked hard to overcome physical disability through sheer LEOnion pride and willpower. He is totally focussed on accomplishing his goals to be the top in whatever it is he puts his feelings into.

His ASCENDANT is Aquarius, showing a rebellious, cool, detached, lover of technology, an outsider, someone who has always felt that he is outside of the law. Also Fixed Sign, he is ultra stubborn and focussed. His prosthetic legs are state of the art technology.

His MERCURY is RETROGRADE and in and on the 10th house cusp indicating he will be communicating to the world in a big way.

VENUS is RETROGRADE in SCORPIO in the 9th house, a very karmic influence. Venus Retrograde indicates, especially as it conjunct to PLUTO in SCORPIO, that Oscar and whatever lady love {Venus} he was with in his life, was indeed a past life karmic one. This combination makes OSCAR extremely sexually magnetic and irresistible to women.Usually his love affairs were characterized by being fast, very intense, very powerful, sexual, s & m, jealousy, controlling, possessive, demanding, obsession  and VIOLENCE.  He still has fanatical legions of supporters.

The women he was involved with and especially REEVA, may have been someone who killed or hurt him in a past life. This reveals a duel to the death through the disguise of magnetic attraction of a passionate hate/love affair. Reeva’s chart would mirror Oscar’s. I haven’t even gotten there yet.

VENUS Retrograde conjunct PLUTO square a LEO MOON is a recipe for dark, murderous, black-hearted, obsession, hate/love, exactly what has occurred in their lives. If Reeva had only gone to a dating Astrologer before she hooked up with him they would have told her run for your life.

His MARS at 27 degrees Aquarius in the 1st house is fixed detached, steely cold, and is Square to his late late Scorpio SUN.

He is definitely a warrior, a fighter, with incredible will power to accomplish great things as an athlete, but also defensive, anger issues, controlling.

JUPITER in PISCES in the 2nd house of resources, money,is square to Uranus in Sagittarius in the 11th. Jupiter, ruler of Pisces can make people very spiritual, genius’s or addicted personalities, unconscious, self-undoing and completely deluded. Oscar’s energy, moods and feeling- stop and go on a dime. Very erratic chaotic emotionally. This also makes him a psychic sponge indicating that whatever Reeva had in her Natal chart would very much influence Oscar’s responses. He could feel Pisces self-pity one minute, and totally shift the next. This gives him a Jekyll and Hyde personality. They would call it Bi-polar these days.

SATURN at 10 degrees Sagittarius in the 10th house is square to Jupiter. Saturn rules Oscar’s father, he called him first right after the murder before he called the police. Saturn is karma. Jupiter rules Sagittarius, truth telling, justice, optimism, ethics. Yes his TRIAL- symbolized by both Jupiter and Saturn in Sagittarius are world wide headlines. He thinks he and his money, power, riches {Saturn} are a law unto themselves. In Pisces he may be able to lie to himself and others and make himself believe its true.

NEPTUNE in Capricorn quincunx his LEO Moon. He has worldy power but is totally out of touch with his heart. Moon in Leo is heart.

REEVA was born August 19 1983 in Capetown South Africa.

Oscar Pistorius reeva astrology by Tara Greene

She is a strong willed, passionate, I am woman here me roar LEO in the 10th house of worldy fame . She must be THE QUEEN.  She has MARS in LEO at 3 degrees EXACTLY conjunct to Oscar’s MOON. This is an very aggressive emotional tug of war already. Pride, control, Reeva is aggressive and will do whatever it takes to get her way. She has a very difficult SATURN PLUTO CONJUNCTION with Saturn at 29 degrees Libra squaring that proud Leo Mars. This is the mass murderer signature. This is a very dangerous, combination to have. She would be attracted to powerful, dangerous, abusive, angry men. Power struggles, ego battles, literally a karmic death in a relationship. Everyone in Reeva’s generation was born with that Saturn Pluto conjunction in Libra. It is a  soul battle for equal relationships. But not everyone ends up tragically killed as Reeva was.

HER LEO Sun is opposite Oscar’s Mars in Aquarius. EGO battles, which squares His Scorpio 29 degrees Sun -who is incontrol? which is conjunct to her Jupiter Uranus  and his SATURN in Sagittarius. VERY intense ego control issues. 

Reeva, like Oscar, also has Venus Retrograde in her 10th house in Virgo. She was a perfectionist, a nit picker, highly intelligent. Venus is squared by Chiron in Gemini on her Descendant- vulnerable to be hurt through infidelity in love and a double talking immature lover, she is ambivalent in relationships. Chiron is opposing Jupiter and Uranus in conjunction in Sagittarius on her Ascendant which also Square her VENUS. This aspect bespeaks high flying optimism, unexpected chaotic love affairs. VENUS square Uranus  is independance and unpredictability in her passion in how she loved. Her Venus In Virgo could be negative and never satisfied.

Reeva’s Moon was at 10 degrees Capricorn in her 2nd house of resources, values. Mars in Leo is in quincunx to her Natal Moon. You know who’s Moon is also Quincunx to her natal Moon. They definitely did not relate emotionally or see eye to eye. They were emotionally incompatible and spoke different emotional languages. She could be very angry and as Capricorn holds emotions in, passive aggressive.

REEVA also has LILITH at 17 degrees Aquarius, the Shadow Queen, the supposed succubus, incubus, feared, the one who rejects. Lilith is in a wide square to Occar’s Sun. 12 degrees is admissible to the Sun. Lilith doesn’t debate, she does everything on her own terms. for that she is hated by men and feared.

See Oscar and Reeva’s synastry chart- the two charts together.

You can see the difficult connections between the two. HIS SOUTH NODE in LIBRA – this is a recreation of a past life relationship, His SN is conjunct to her SATURN Pluto conjunction in Libra. Death. They were inexorably drawn together to try to create new karma between them.  His Natal  Venus Pluto conjunction is close to her SATURN PLUTO one. As heavy as it gets.

Reeva’s North Node in Gemini is conjunct to Oscar’s CHIRON indicating that he was most vulnerable to her own duality, fickleness, toying with him nature. They were quite a pair. This shows that they were karmically drawn together to attempt to work out a past life relationship. They had a magnetic attraction and repulsion to each other. This happens when one or both parties are unconscious. Most people are. This is a totally toxic relationship.

On Valentine’s Day 2013.

All of the planets are aligned on the left side of Oscar’s natal chart indicating that he was in the grip of his own Unconscious emotions. transiting Saturn conjunct his Pluto, Mercury and there’s that murderous aspect I wrote about above. Also MArs Mercury conjunct  his Jupiter conjuncts to mixed up communications, like his story that night. The Sun in Aquarius is conjunct to Oscar’s Natal Mars and is square to his Natal Sun in Scorpio.  He would have been royally pissed off and quick to ego and anger.

MARS and Mercury are conjunct to his Natal Jupiter in Pisces. Illusion, delusion, drunken or drugged. and in square to  his NATAL SATURN. There must have been drugs involved. 

transiting Venus, the woman, is at 14 degrees Aquarius conjunct Oscar’s Ascendant and Squaring transiting Saturn in Scorpio conjunct to his MIDHEAVEN and MERCURY. It was not a good Valentine’s day aspect for love.

PLUTO LORD of DEATH is at 10 degrees of Capricorn EXACTLY on Poor Reeva’s natal MOON. This was the karmic climax of her life.

NEPTUNE CHIRON and MARS are in conjunction in Pisces exactly opposite her Natal VENUS. There may have been drinking and or drugging although no mention of it was made to my knowledge. Blurred lines, delusion, illusion, obsessiveness and anger thrown at REEVA consciously or unconsciously.Transitting Venus is conjunct Reeva’s Lilith, activating her ability to be indifferent or turn off her partner. She was not willing to compromise.

So what will happen to remorseful Mr. Pistorius? Judge Thokozile Masipa is a black female and I have been corrected there is no jury system in South Africa the Judge will decide.

Saturn just went Retrograde at 23 degrees Scorpio very close to Oscar’s SUN and Saturn is squaring his Natal Mars in Aquarius. SATURN- karma, limitations, obstacles,  the weight, punishment will cross Oscar’s Sun at this year’s end. A once in 29 year occurrence.

CHIRON the wounded healer is sitting right on his Natal JUPITER in PISCES. Jupiter is Justice, and in Pisces, there is compassion, forgiveness There is also in distinction, fog, ineptitude, delusions of grandeur, and real delusions, as already happened at the crime scene and last year at Oscar’s bail. CHIRON is squaring Oscar’s Natal Chiron in Gemini- a double talking and his Saturn in Sagittarius which is an Honest Judicial system. Sagittarius also rules the law..

ON the opening Trial Date March 3 2014

Mars, the male hero, symbolizing Oscar is Retrograde in Libra, so he is in detriment. Mars is squaring Venus in Capricorn. Mars will cross Oscar’s South Node at 20 degrees Libra soon indicating his past relationship is being reviewed because of his aggressive behaviour.

THE MOON is at 12 degrees Aries exactly where it was on the night of the murder.

The trial is supposed to last for about 3 weeks but during Mars and Saturn retrograde and as Oscar is also a huge hero in South Africa it may take along while before the judge decides.

JUPITER at 10 degrees Cancer turning DIRECT on March 6 is Trining Oscar’s Natal Pluto in Scorpio and his Natal Jupiter in Pisces at 13 degrees forming a GRAND WATER TRINE and Chiron the wounded healer is also at 13 degrees Pisces. This makes the justice system very, very sympathetic to him.  He admits he killed her but by accident and not premeditation. I believe that he will found guilty of a 2nd degree of some similar smaller punishment and will have to pay community service,  or be given a compassionate shorter jail sentence.

The Solar Eclipse April 29 is at 8 degrees of TAURUS directly on Oscar’s Natal PLUTO.

PLUTO is entering Oscar Pistorius 12th house of  karma for a very very long time. He will have to live with himself. Reeva’s family and friend’s need closure. Oscar as a wealthy brand, as a hero, is living out the Archetypal hero’s journey of Icarus. He is not beyond the law. There will be fair justice but also compassion.

Retronado,Double trouble advice from Tara Greene

Yes it’s a virtual Retronado as Saturn joins Mars turning Retrograde March 2,

one day after Mars goes Retro on the New Moon in Pisces March 1.

Retrograde Astrology Tara Greene

SATURN turns Retrograde @ 23 degrees 19 minutes Scorpio until  July 19 turning Direct @ 16 degrees 39 minutes. 

MARS & SATURN were traditionally known as the two “MALEFICS.”  Meaning bringing difficulty, originally supernaturally.

So these two Retrograde Planets double deal us the heavy hard stuff. Bad cards, ill omens.

It’s like “THE GRIM” in HArry Potter

Saturn is Trouble, obstacles, the third dimension, the tax-man, Father, Corporations, Patriarchal Authority, elders, karma.

Saturn Retrograde reminds me of the Myth of Sisyphus, who was a deceitful King who was punished by having to push a huge boulder up hill all day, which rolled back at night so he had to keep repeating the same thing for eternity.

It may only feel that way. And it won’t last  for ETERNITY.


It may not be easy. You gotta pay your dues. NO PAIN NO GAIN.

Saturn, modern Ruler of Capricorn,{ also ancient ruler of Aquarius}  also rules death,  aka Father Time, he used to be called the Grim Reaper.

A friend of mine always said ” SATURN ALWAYS WINS.”

Thanatos is a Freudian term for it. Rather like Pluto, Lord of the Dead.  

So Saturn and Pluto share similarities. Pluto is the modern ruler of SCORPIO along with Mars.

Myth of Sisyphus Titian Tara Greene Astrology

THE MYTH of  SISYPHUS by Titian 1548

The BAD BOYS are in cahoots and moving us back to cover our tracks into the shadows….

Up until March 6 there will be 3 personal planets Retrograde. 

DON’T  expect much action in the sex, job or friends optimism and advantages departments during that 5 day period especially.

DO- Enjoy the MOLASSES NESS of it all. Sticky, dark, dramatic, messy.

DO- Slow down, we do far too much rushing around BUSYness these days.

Jupiter will turn Direct March 6 having been RETROGRADE since early November 2013 @ 20 degrees 31 minutes of CANCER.

That will open up some energy flow especially for CANCER, Sagittarius, and Pisces.

MARS currently Retrograding in LIBRA is ruled by Venus. RETROGRADE MARS affects ARIES and SCORPIO especially

MARS turns Retrograde March 1 at 27 degrees 32 minutes of LIBRA until MAY 19.

Mars Retrograde is anger turned inwards, it can affect your health, be careful of not getting too wound up inside.

Exercise is very important to release the steam that  can’t get out. It will help increase low energy.

MARS in LIBRA Retrograde is VERY INDECISIVE.  So don’t expect clear cut answers.

All people, cities countries that are Aries + Scorpio & Capricorn  will feel the FAIL. 


England, Germany, Palestine, Poland, Israel,


Syria, New Orleans Louisiana, Paraguay, Morocco,


Mexico. U.K. India, Albania, Brussels Belgium, the Vatican.

There will be energy shifts in those places, hardships, tough times.


Saturn RETROgrade in Scorpio will further affect SCORPIO energy and magnify Mars Retrograde motion 

Double Toil and trouble for you Scorpios,born NOVEMBER 8th – 17th especially… Let’s hear from you. I’ m listening.

Rams too, usually the most amped up energetically of all the signs will feel the lack of oomph energy and drive the most. 

We will all be carrying that weight, Saturn is Lead, depressing, lack of purpose, what’s the point? 

Saturn will make us take responsibility for our actions.  Saturn only moves back about 7 degrees in almost 5 months. 

DO.  revisit any unfinished responsibilities, especially taxes, contracts, unfinished projects.Old family issues, karma, your Dad most especially. Marriage reviews, business associates and the like.

Old sexual problems may surface, shared resources, inheritance, women’s reproductive issues, finances are all Saturn in Scorpio.

DO. Exploring old emotional baggage, the dark heavies, therapy is beneficial, mourning what you have lost and haven’t had time to cry about.


This is  a HUGELY IMPORTANT ISSUE. A client the other day had hives all over her body and they couldn’t tell what was wrong. She was on an elimination diet. I tuned into the fact that her father had died a couple of years ago and she was so busy care taking everyone else that she hadn’t had time to fully mourn herself. She had 5 planets in Libra. I told her to go directly home to cry, to mourn fully in the Jewish tradition for one solid week, To sit shiva for her Dad. I predicted that her symptoms would go away. I also recommended Homeopathic remedies which support grief. 

Remember EVERYONE has the planets Mars and Saturn in their own natal chart somewhere.

Philip Seymour Hoffman life and death Astrology by Tara Greene

Philip Seymour Hoffman Astrology Tara Greene

Sad tragic news of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s death at 46 years old, from an  apparent heroin O.D. although the autopsy hasn’t been conclusive yet. Considered to be one of the finest actors of his generation. He won the Academy Award for his role in CAPOTE. His sudden passing has engendered a wave of shock and sadness throughout Hollywood. There was a  minute of silence on Broadway today in his honor.

Admired by his colleagues in the theatre and film for his intense, sensitive, honest, indepth acting. Mr. Hoffman leaves three young children. We will never watch more stupendous acting and directing roles which he could and would have accomplished.

He had  been an addict when younger but sober since he was 22 years old. A year ago prescription drugs then heroin and recent rehab stints were reparted. Why the relapse recently? What demons did Mr. Hoffman have?

Lets look at his astrology chart to discover who Philip really was.                                                               



Philip Seymour Hoffman Tara Greene ASTROLOGYBorn July   23 1967 Fairport New York, no exact birth time

I have no accurate birth time so have used NOON for a famous person.

The SUN had just entered LEO the sign of the actor, the dramatic, passionate, willful leader. A new experience in being born a Leo, needing to be center stage, being admired by the world. Leo is also the sign of the child and of the heart.

As his birth time is unknown, at noon, the Moon- his Mother appears to be in Aquarius. His parents divorced when he was young and his mother brought him and three siblings up alone. Moon in Aquarius people are strong individuals, marching to their own drummers, quite brilliant thinkers. If he was born later this day, after 10 pm then his Moon would be in Pisces, the sign of inspired actors,dreamers and addicts.

Mercury at 12 degrees Cancer, Philip’s modus communication is exactly on the United States Sun. This is  a very powerful degree. Connected to Fixed Star SIRIUS. It makes him sentimental, close to his mother, his roots, his foundation. Very emotional, moody, loves children, to eat, a nurturer. 

VENUS is in VIRGO at 9 degrees. He was a workaholic, a dedicated and humble man who loved to be of service. He was very intellectual and analytical, noticing every detail of a character’s mannerism and speech which he played.  He was probably insecure underneath it all, and his own worst enemy with a very well-developed inner critic.

Mars is his masculinity, passion, drive, defenses was at 1 degree Scorpio. This man was intense, powefull, secretive, in control, demanding. He was fascinated with the shadow, his own and his characters. He loved psychology and getting right inside of whatever character he portrayed. He was quite fearless.

JUPITER- expansion, optimism, was at 12 degrees LEO. Jupiter in Leo is the King, royalty, golden, striving to be the best, can be overly optimistic. Someone who wants to taste everything in life. A natural actor, a man of great passion and heart. Jupiter is optimistic, good humour, big bellied, JOVIAL. He strove to inspire others.

SATURN represents his father, karma, obstacles,limitations. At 12 degrees ARIES it’s in square to his Mercury. This man had enormous drives and energy to burn.  A fighter, a warrior, independent and entrepreneurial spirit. An original thinker. At odds with his father and the establishment in general. Saturn in Aries limits Aries natural unlimited energy and passion, one can burn out to quickly.

URANUS at 21 degrees Virgo is conjunct Pluto at 18 degrees Virgo. This is a hallmark of an entire 60’s generation. Naturally rebellious soulful tenders of their own psyche’s garden.  

CHIRON at 29 degrees+ of PISCES is opposite Philip’s Uranus. This is a most important degree in any astrology chart as it is the very last degree possible. Considered to be an extremely karmic point it indicates finishing up an entire cycle of lifetimes and getting ready to step off the karmic wheel to become enlightened. Chiron is Retrograde, indicating that Mr. Hoffman wasn’t quite ready to complete his liberation yet.This is something of a BODHISATVA aspect. Someone who attains enlightenment but returns to the earth plane out of compassion, to ease the suffering of others.


is at 21 degrees SCORPIO and Retrograde squaring JUPITER. Neptune in Scorpio indicates dark passions, shadow demons, nightmares, deep-seated fear, sex, power and control issues. Facination with the dark side, with death, depression. In Square to Jupiter in Leo these demons are enlarged, ferocious, hounds of hell. It also means being too optimistic and totally fascinated with how far he could push the edge, walking the razor blade and being obsessed by it.

NEPTUNE is also the ruler of Pisces and all creative people, artists, actors, and also the planet of addictions, illusion delusion, being able to be a chameleon, which is why he was such an incredible actor. 

NORTH NODE was at 2 degrees of TAURUS. Very solid, grounded, sensual, practical, reliable was what he was supposed to embody as his highest spiritual goal. The NOrth NOde is in square to his Leo SUN, indicating a karmic imperative, a necessity, to shine that spiritual light brightly on the stage of life. This he most definitely did. The SOUTH NODE {not shown in the chart} is right on his natal MARS in Scorpio at 2 degrees. 

These aspects  indicate a  fierce inner struggle, a battle. Philip was a fearless warrior, driven by his passions to be brilliant { his SUN in  LEO} and his demons and his obsessions { Scorpio} from birth and even before.  He achieved much in a relative short life.  His chart is really not that complicated. 


Apparently Hoffman had recently been in rehab but had been doing heroin heavily for the past six weeks or so preceding his death. Apparently he said if he didn’t quit heroin he knew that he would die. Can Astrology predict death?

A number of MAJOR Hard astrology transits were hitting Mr. Hoffman for the past year or so but intensifying now. His Natal SATURN- karma, and Mercury at 12 degrees of CARDINAL signs was being pummeled by PLUTO, URANUS and Venus.

URANUS conjunct Saturn alone is sudden death in and of itself.  Unexpected chaos, uncontrollable erratic energy. And Pluto squaring that and opposing his sensitive Mercury in CAncer. 

SATURN was also transiting his natal NEPTUNE, planet of addictions, secrets, power and control. That is also an intensely heavy transit meaning SATURN= death by drugs, addictions. Saturn would also be squaring his MOON in late Aquarius or early PISCES. Another heavy emotional depressing transit. 

CHIRON at 11 degrees PISCES was opposite to his Natal Venus. He has been vulnerable and weakened by that transit. His old wounds had been re-opened. Addictions, as Carl Jung astutely observed are the thirst for spirit, the pun, alcohol or other drugs to numb the pain of separation from SOURCE.

Neptune at 4 degrees + of PISCES is also opposing his natal VENUS. Venus is desire, in Virgo it is desire for perfection. The illusion of finding it, the dream of bliss, the addiction to perfection, to spacing out, freeing oneself, victimhood, or guilt or simply numbing out or just the love of being High.

Transiting NORTH NODE is exactly on his natal Mars at 1 degree Scorpio and conjunct his SOUTH NODE at 2 degrees. This is a transiting nodal reversal indicating old Scorpionic obsessions being highlighted. These nodes conjunct every 18+ years and oppose every 9+ years. In one sense he was aligned with the movement of spiritual energy now. It did involve dealing with his obsessions, his shadows. The North Node was also in square to his SUN. Fighting the demons with the LIGHT of his own WILL or merging with the Phoenix of rebirth.

The last Total Solar Eclipse at 11 degrees of SCORPIO on November 3 2013 was exactly square to Mr. Hoffman’s Jupiter in Leo. Eclipse’s will trigger energies which last up to a year. Scorpio is the sign of death and rebirth and in square to his Jupiter in Leo, makes one think they are the  King and can get away with anything. Pride, hubris, danger, playing fast and dark, love of speed demons is all part of that energy. 

Philip’ s work will be remembered. My condolences to his long time partner and their three children and his family.  He left a powerful acting legacy and serves to inspire future generations.

Mr. Hoffman was a number 8 in Numerology the symbols of Strength, Justice, the Star, a karmic number. He was under the influence of the number 9 since his last birthday. He was at the end of a 10 year cycle.

Moon enters Leo @ 1:48 am EST – 3 minutes from now.

“You’re gonna hear me Roar. “

Don’t you hate it when those pop songs, no matter how good, end up stuck on replay and loop endlessly in your head?  Drives me crazy.I have a 15 year old daughter so I am quite aware of every pop hit these days. They must use subliminal seduction for the song hooks to do that. Katy Perry could never have a  flop.

What do you think?

I guess Katy updated Helen Reddy’s old school.“I am woman hear me roar” an early Feminist anthem pop hit song from the 70’s. Good Old Helen is flipping out I’m sure. There was no decolletage in sight in her video. How times have changed. 

BE BIG LIONHEARTED – its a mainly Leo weekend.


as the Moon Quincunx’s- that’s like bad indigestion aspect-

NEPTUNE in PISCES, Chiron in Pisces and Pluto in Capricorn.

that takes a lotta LION balls to do that.

Beware of self- aggrandizement and pride which leads to feeling spaced out, down and out and lonely at the top when you’re King of the Hill.

And the only BREAK in this last day of Autumn 2013 is 

a Moon to URANUS TRINE -good for whacky, weirdo, far out, 

crazy high, freedom, outta the box LOVE, courage, leadership

Walking the tightrope with no net.

It’s gonna take a miracle maybe….

Speaking of Miracles, manes and big heartedness

2013 Vertigo,pissed off and pet deaths,dreams, musings from Tara Greene

here’s what’s happening for me so far in 2013 

I have been feeling very tired and I’ve heard “exhausted”from a number of people. Like really exhausted. energy feels intense.

Also I have been feeling that vertigo thing again. Have you?

vertigo pineal gland

I have experienced this for weeks at a time in the past year or so. Also stabbing pains in my left ear and in parts of my body that come and go.  Some call it Ascension symptoms. I am very sensitive and it feels like the electro-magnetic energy fields are shifting a lot when I feel this. I believe it is also has something to do with awakening the pineal gland.

Jan 3 Our lovely beautiful bright yellow canary”Sunny” passed away today. We had him for nine years! And we adored him, as he sang so beautifully, he had the most amazing and diverse songs, we nicknamed him Pavarotti. When people would call the house and he was singing they used to ask me if I was in a jungle because it sounded like so many birds. Nope just one little Sunny boy. He knew his name and would turn when we called him. He was the most special canary, a Belgian water canary who sang when you turned the tap on, to the sound of running water.  

Birds always symbolize human souls in ancient metaphysics.

Sonny was my Dad’s nickname when he was a child. So I see beautiful Sunny finally flying free as a bird, across the Universe, like a shooting star, like a Phoenix rising. He lived his entire life in a cage, I always thought it was sad, but he was very safe and had all his creature comforts met. It was the only life he knew. 

Always so sad when your pets die, I think I cry more for them in some ways.

And our lovely orange cat, the foundling who appeared July 4, yay a U.S.  patriot kitten,we discovered  had peed in a plastic trunk filled with our and my husband’s 30 years worth of old SLR color and B & W pics from his childhood. Ew what a stink! There was some magnificent panorama shots we took when in Death Valley on the Spring Equinox in 1997 to do a ceremony under Comet Hale-Bopp to do a Spring Solstice Give- away ceremony for our daughter Leah in there. Had to dispose of 80% of it. We do have the negatives here somewhere, somewhere. Bad cat. I think he’s pissed off about our new puppy.

Taking everything that happens in your life as a dream. I’d say that Cats symbolize instincts in the dream/real world, sensitives, negative energy neutralizers. A pissed off cat  literally pees on things. So one’s instincts are demonstrating that they are pissed off about holding onto the past. 

How would you interpret that dream?

Solar Flare alert-Black Hole Sun-Full Moon, 4th of JULY,Tara Greene Psychic Astrology

We are in a very high CME Coronal Mass Ejection period. Very high magnitude solar flares  July 2 and more expected almost X-class, m3.8 have been reported.

see for up to the minute news

THE SUN is the heart,the Source of our solar system. If the Sun is showing sun spots which are visible to the naked eye, the Sun is  speaking to us VERY LOUDLY  in Solar Logos or solar flair pictograms.

FULL MOON July 3 @ 11:53 am PDT/ 2:53 pm EDT/ 6:53 pm GMT

and a very powerful FULL MOON at that. Ushering in the U.S. 4th of July BIRTHDAY CELEB.

The MOON is situated @ 12 degrees CAPRICORN, directly opposite is conjunct Fixed Star SIRIUS, and the U.S. SUN

the SIRIANS are a highly evolved spiritual group of entities who are overseeing humanities leap into higher dimensional frequencies.

Sirius was the Star of very bright magnitude which the Egyptians worshipped as OSIRUS.Sirius rising signalled the annual flooding of the Nile hence fertility and continued life.

PLUTO Retrograde is conjunct the MOON  making this a very SOULFUL deep, powerful and  intensely felt  full moon.

We are in the midst of the first Pluto Uranus squares which started June 24 XACT. These outer planets produce generational changing world events. ALways best to look into the past to check this out.

The last time the 2 planets squared off was in 1932-34 at 20-24 degrees Aries- Uranus to Pluto in Cancer. Note that Saturn is currently opposite to that Uranian placement and square to that PLuto placement, further highlighting the karmic intensity of what was shall be underscored now for deeper meaning. We are condemned to repeat the past if we don’t learn from our mistakes. That is KARMA plain and simple.

This time period saw the GREAT Depression, FDR’s New Deal, creation of FDIC,CCC and FCC.

The rise of dictators Hitler, Stalin and Mao- the great murderer of all time. Fascism is on the rise. Not just neo-nazis, or anti-Muslims, but the new NDAA law in the U.S. can mean anyone who mentions conspiracy theories or who speaks against the state, this is not CHINA, can be thrown in jail with out trial for up to 90 days. people could be disappearing soon. Hitlerian fascism is back. in Canada Stephen Harper has renamed Canada’s government in his own brand name! WTF!!!

ON a more positive note many important scientific discoveries were made in quantum mechanics and radio astronomy.

There could be a danger of Japan’s failed Nuclear power reactors being damaged through high tides on the this PLUTONIC full MOON.  Solar flares can also interfere with any computers. We are all very vulnerable with our dependence on new technology.

Just a few days ago Sun opposed Pluto with the Uranus Square and Mars entering Libra today will further amp it up.

This is all potential quite explosive.

The Sun OUR STAR, our LIGHT, our father, as progenitor, who art in Heaven, is speaking to us.

 The SOLAR LOGOS is just coming to me as I write this. It is something Stuart Wilde,a writer and spiritual teacher I have read, attended lectures and respect talks about, It comes from metaphysical visionary Rudolph Steiner. Stuart says the Solar Logos is the Returned Christ Light. This is a good thing.

People born during 32-34 who are now hitting 80 are going through enormous change and potential liberation. People who’s natal planets are being affected by these transits may be choosing to leave the planet.

I wrote this late last night. Was looking for something on the net and went to look at photos I took from almost one year ago  exactly at the MOCCA opening for This is Paradise in Toronto. I was looking at some great portraits, one was of an old friend of my husband and myself, artist Sybil Goldstein. I thought oh what a great photo of her we’ll have to go see her soon. She has this funky little country place at an old leftist Jewish Mother and babe’s camp callled Camp Nyveldt or new world, 

Artists Sybil Goldstein RIP photo by Tara Greene

Went to sleep. Woke up, went to FB only to find out that Sybil had passed away suddenly yesterday night! A big shock.

I send Sybil many blessings, she was a strong woman,a very talented artist, a devoted mother of one son.

We hardly know anything. For me to do my best psychic work I have to be in a state of not knowing, humility.

Life is always  unexpected. The sudden death of a friend punctuated with solar flares and on a Full Moon packs an even more powerful punch through our hearts. It is always a good day to die. One cannot live unless one confronts death and change.

then I found this

We hardly know anything. To be fully alive is to not know, allowing conscious awareness, and the Light in.

The URANUS PLUTO SQUARES and the SOLAR FLARES and you can rap it too. impacts each one of us with the fact that all we can do is love totally, live at 200%, be present, give, be conscious. Ask for forgiveness from our humanness.

Sybil painted the Cameron House Art Bar’s Queen West landmark hot spot’s ceiling wth cherubs. She was part of the Chromaliving collective and  a well known Toronto artist for 30 years.

Sybil Goldstein Toronto artist

I leave you with one of her paintings which seems to illustrate the Capricorn Full Moon.

With every death there is a rebirth.

I leave you with this song by one of my fave singers LAURA NYRO and when I die

Google Yankee doodle Astrology of Dr. Robert Moog electronic music inventor by Tara Greene

May 23 2012 is the celebration of the 78th birthday of Doctor Robert Moog the inventor of electronic music with his new fangled electronic synthesizer patented in 1966 which was filed in October 1969.

dr. Moog electronic music inventor

It’s 43 years or a Uranus opposition to the time the Moog synthesizer was first patented.  

Dr. Moog worked with early electronic music pioneers John Cage, and Wendy Carlos  an American composer and electronic musician, whose recording in 1968, Switched-On Bach, music by J.S. Bach painstakingly assembled, phrase-by-phrase, on the Moog which was a new and unknown instrument. The album was awarded three Grammy Awards in 1969. He also worked with Rick Wakeman of YES,and  Keith Emmerson of Emmerson, Lake and Palmer fame amongst others.

 Lady GAGA and all of modern music would be nowhere without Dr. Robert‘s invention. 

Lets check out Dr. Moog’s Natal horoscope to see evidence or lack of his musical genius.

Born May 23  1934 in New York City I have no birth time so will use NOON time as birth always for a famous person.

All inventors are AQUARIUS types,

Dr. Moog has his NORTH NODE representing his highest spiritual goal at 13 degrees of Aquarius.

He also has SATURN, the builder, the architect, karma, the father principle, at 27 degrees of Aquarius  close to the position of the Fixed star

Fomalhaut aka Angel Gabriel- the one blowing the trumpet- music-the announcing angel. SATURN is the traditional ruler of AQUARIUS and so is very powerful. Dr. Moog is considered to be the chief builder and inventor of electronic music, the real founding father. That’s a perfect harmonious fit!

He had the Moon in Virgo it looks like on that day. Moon in Virgo people are very  focussed, analytical, perfectionist, practical, hard-working, detail oriented and doing the VIRGO thing of being of service to the world.

VENUS rules music. Venus is in what pioneering, forward thinking sign then? ARIES of course. VENUS in ARIES is the pioneer, the self motivated individual, the leader, the first, numero uno, chock up another one!

Venus rules the signs of  TAURUS and LIBRA

Dr. Robert had MARS in TAURUS –

TAURUS is the sign of  “I HAVE”.” As the first earth sign, it literally means I have my body, my hands, my senses, the resources, tools,money

 In a 2000 interview, Moog said “I’m an engineer. I see myself as a toolmaker and the musicians are my customers. They use my tools.”

So we see his MARS as  action principle, libido, drive, testosterone was ruled by VENUS and her love of music. It’s all about creativity.

Bob also had JUPITER planet of OPTIMISM, expansion, International connections,risk-takers, philanthropists,  leaders, in LIBRA

so VENUS rules JUPITER as well. Now Jupiter is Retrograde which means there is a karmic connection here.

I immediately thought that Dr. Moog was an ancient musician for many lifetimes, I say him wearing a Greek toga, playing a lyre and he worshipped Terpsichore the ancient GREEK GODDESS one of the nine MUSES of the Arts.

There is in fact an Asteroid named after Terpsichore and where is she in His natal Astrology chart?

At 28 degrees 49 minutes of VIRGO conjunct his MOON { his mother}.

Dr. Moog’s mom must have been playing music all the time when she was pregnant or sang. Or he had a very strong soulforce connection and new what his genius was. He was conscious since before birth I sense, of what Dr. James Hillman calls the Daemon,or Guardian Angel  which he wrote about in his best selling book THE SOUL’S CODE which I highly recommend.

Here’s the BEATLES singing Dr. Robert

Dr. Moog had his SUN at 1 degree of Gemini, coincidentally close to the May 20th solar eclipse and MERCURY in GEMINI which is very strong in its home sign, plus Chiron at 4 and Asteroid Ceres conjunct the Sun. I bet Mr. Moog was a typical archetype genius but scatter-brained professor, very intelligent, very curious, very young, a great communicator.

NEPTUNE the “HIGHER OCTAVE” of VENUS is at 9 degrees of VIRGO, shows Mr. MOOG again as a symbol of a VENUSIAN, creative, diligent, hard-working, making NEPTUNE practical. NEPTUNE which rules spirit and all creative inspiration comes down to earth, is a useful time-saving VIRGO  tool.

Dr. Moog has URANUS the ruler of his North Node and SATURN at 29 degrees of ARIES,

indicating he was meant to be a very radical independent modern technology inventor, someone whose invention would bring freedom liberation, self-expression to. 29 degrees is also a critical or karmic degree,,,

He had PLUTO in CANCER conjunct LILLITH

in a square to Jupiter and VENUS and bringing in URANUS.

He must have had a lot of difficulty with women,or was attracted to very powerful women. I sense that the Moog synthesizer, the prototype of all modern electronic pop music, had this LILLITH driving energy coming through Moog’s Soul behind it. As if Lillith Herself instructed him from the unconscious or super conscience to create an instrument of radical freedom,modern liberation… exactly where would LADY GAGA be with Mr. Moog or Rhianna or any rapper?

Why did GOOGlE choose tohonor DR. MOOG’s birthday now? Well the planet MARS is exactly on his Natal NEPTUNE now at 9 degrees of VIRGO.

We hail you and thank you Dr. Robert MOOG for your new fangled in 1966 invention. You gave the world a great invention.

I’ll leave you with one of my faves of pop music YELLO -oooh yeah! with some good astrology symbols the moon the Sun! so beautiful OH YEAH!
