Stephen Hawking Life and death astrology

One of the greatest scientific minds a brilliant theorist on physics in our lifetime Stephen Hawking passed away March 14, 2018, at 76 years of age peacefully at his home in Cambridge England surrounded by his family. 

Stephen Hawking Life Astrology Tara Greene

Stephen Hawking was diagnosed with ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease in 1963 at the age of 21 and given two years to live. He got married and continued to work tirelessly fathering three children with his wife. 

A was a world famous brilliant theorist on black holes and the nature of the universe. In 1985 a life-saving tracheotomy saved his life but he lost his voice. He fought his disease bravely using a synthesizer to speak with one cheek muscle. I am grateful that I got to see the amazing Mr. Hawking in person in 1974 in Washington D.C. 

His book A Brief History of Time sold over 10 million copies and was  on the British Sunday Times best-seller list for a record-breaking 237 weeks.

Lets look at Mr. Hawking’s Astrology chart. I know he did not believe in Astrology or God.

Born January 8, 1942, in Oxford England- no birth time. Astrologer Noel Tyl has rectified Hawking’s birth time to 10:00 am BST. I am using that time but not talking about house placements.

Hawking was born on the 300th anniversary of the death of famous ASTRONOMER Galileo Galilei who Hawking said he felt close to. I believe there is a past life significance there-read on. January 8th is also the birthday of David Bowie and Elvis Presley in other years. Transits at the time of death are in green.

Stephen Hawking Astrology Tara Greene

Stephen Hawking was a very determined earthy CAPRICORN ruled by the planet SATURN which gives maturity and seniority.Stephen Lived to an old age with a disease which kills most of the afflicted off young. He became a hero to those with disabilities. Stephen had to deal with the hard reality of the ravages of the disease for most of his adult life had 8 planets in EARTH SIGNS and many RETROGRADE planets

His Sun at 17 Capricorn was conjunct Asteroid ATHENA the strategist alongside MERCURY the brilliant trickster communicator.

This describes Hawking’s charisma will and intellect. 

His MOON symbolizing his mother, instincts, modest temperament intuition and his health was @ 24 degrees VIRGO the sign of intellect, perfectionism, and organized workaholics.

Hawking’s MOON was conjunct NEPTUNE the planet of dreamers, idealists,  creative people and romantics. Hawking was a very practical down to earth dreamer.


His highest spiritual goal in life @14 degrees Virgo is conjunct the Asteroid PSYCHE indicating the depth of practical in-depth soulful insights he brought in through his work.

His SOUTH NODE in PISCES @14 degrees indicates his past life as a very spiritual or religious person someone who was cloistered. He brought that creative imagination and dreamy spirit who had much compassion into this world. He could have been a very highly realized yogi who was totally detached from the world. His karmic lesson was to be scientific, anti-religious and thoroughly embodied. He also believed in Aliens.

Hawking’s SOUTH NODE sextiles his SUN, inconjunct CHIRON in LEO

This is a past life affliction. Hawking needed to heal his karmic wound by being the World’s Wounded Healer.

JUPITER the planet of expansion, teaching, and international travel squares his Nodes in GEMINI Retrograde at 12 degrees. Hawking was famous for having a childlike curiosity. “I am just a child who has never grown up. I still keep asking these ‘how’ and ‘why’ questions. Occasionally, I find an answer.”

JUPITER in GEMINI is the sign of great communicators. This aspects kept him young and could be part of the explanation for Hawking living so long. He could be very charming, had a dual nature, and the gift of communicating dualistic ideas. 

VENUS @ 20 degrees AQUARIUS

His love of ideas, of being scientific and detached. A love of the STARS-Aquarius is a human sign pouring cosmic consciousness- the vast Universe which Aquarius symbolizes onto the earth. Hawking was a complete AQUARIAN original. An outsider, an inventive pioneer who sought to go to places no scientist had been before. He was always going to break the rules and live his life his way. He did defyed the doctor’s diagnosis. 

VENUS squares his SATURN RETROGRADE @ 21 Taurus


ALGOL was traditionally the Star with the worst reputation in the skies and brings affliction. This SATURN-URANUS conjunction indicates a radical rule breaker and echoes the later Saturn Uranus oppositions in the mid-60’s when he was diagnosed with the disease. This aspect indicates body karma. Hawking lost the ability to speak in 1985 and Venus TAURUS and the throat. He used computer technology a Uranian item to speak with. 

VENUS opposite CHIRON, the Wounded Healer in LEO squaring SATURN in TAURUS

Hawking certainly embodied that for the world. He couldn’t heal himself but used his brilliant willpower to overcome his disease. Stephen was destined to be famous. He was a charismatic, childlike, brilliant, original and stubborn as an ox. 


This Grand Earth trine gave Stephen incredible strength, stability, patience, long life and earthly blessings of all kinds of rewards for his hard work. 


MARS @ 28 degrees ARIES indicated the incredible energy levels he had. He was brash, risk-taking, competitive, wanting to live life on the edge and to be number one.


He had a brilliant razor-sharp wit and fast mind. He could be selfish and totally absorbed in his is work. Hawking said he was glad he got to live in his mind.

MARS inconjunct the MOON NEPTUNE in VIRGO

This indicates Hawking’s driven focus for his work to overcome his health issues. He was a romantic deep down and stated that the universe has no meaning without loved ones in it. 


Hawking’s groundbreaking theories on Black Holes are clearly seen because he was totally intuitively tuned into them.


PLUTO is conjunct CHIRON opposite his MERCURY  opposite CERES in AQUARIUS squaring MARS in ARIES

This is a super-powered T-square. Hawking was fueled by his drive for success with a sometimes maniacal will power

Asteroid Gehrig #5891 @ 23 SCORPIO 

Asteroid #5891 is named after the famous baseball player Lou Gehrig who is associated with ALS the disease Hawking had. Gehrig died in 1941 the year before Hawking’s birth. I was curious to see how this asteroid played out in Hawking’s chart. 

Asteroid Gehrig is in SCORPIO opposite his Natal SATURN/URANUS in TAURUS and square to his Natal VENUS in AQUARIUS.  This explains his destiny to have this disease. 


At his DEATH March 14 2018 early in the A.M. GMT

Stephen was under numerous powerful transits.

URANUS in ARIES exactly transiting his Natal MARS in ARIES and Inconjunct his Natal MOON/NEPTUNE

This is unexpected energy which acted quickly.  Hawking may not have been conscious when he passed. 


Pluto the planet of death and rebirth had been applying to Hawking’s SUN for the last two years. Pluto was TRINING his Natal VIRGO MOON indicating health issues and the love of his family and children who he became close to again after his divorce from his second wife.  PLUTO trining his NATAL SATURN and URANUS in TAURUS. His GRAND TRINE was empowered.  He left the world satsified. 

Transiting SATURN planet of Death in CAPRICORN inconjunct his NATAL PLUTO in LEO.

Stephen always lived every day as if it was his last. 

JUPITER in SCORPIO @ 23 degrees 

Jupiter turned RETROGRADE on MARCH 8 exactly on Hawking’s Asteroid Gehrig indictaing his succumbing to the disease. 

Hawking was an atherist was ironically blessed by planet NEPTUNE at his death.

NEPTUNE rules PISCES it was conjunct to his SOUTH NODE @14 degrees PISCES opposite his NORTH NODE in VIRGO.

This indicates that Stephen Hawking has gone back to spirit the same way he came in. PISCES rules the unconscious, the spiritual creative wholeness which all life originated from. I am sure that he is happy knowing that his consciousness did not end at his death but will continue on. His work-his North Node in VIRGO will certainly live on. 

BTW GALILEO was born February 15, 1564, in the Julian Calendar at 3:31 P.M. in Pisa Italy. When looking for past life connections one would look for contacts to Hawkings’ South or North Node and PLUTO. 

Stephen Hawking’s SOUTH NODE was 14 degrees PISCES. GALILEO’s SUN was @ 6 degrees PISCES his MERCURY @12, and PLUTO @13 degrees PISCES. This is so obvious a synchronicity as to be almost unbelievable. Pluto symbolizes the soul.

Thank you, Stephen Hawking for bringing your incredible spirit into this world.

Women matter Venus square Saturn healing our wounds

March 13 Five days after International Women’s day


Women need to stay on the front lines as warrioresses soldiers of love battling for freedom independence the right to own their own bodies and against big government bible thumpers and the old patriarchal religions and networks.

Saturn’s energy can make you feel tired he is as heavy as lead. But Saturn is also about long-term projects goals patience perseverance and being on top of the mountain.

Saturn lends a woman weight in the best way possible. Brush up on your herstory-  Max Dashu has spent 40 years compiling the Suppressed Histories archive of women who were written out of Herstory. see link below.

But wait there’s much more

Mars Venus’ mate is at 27˚SAGITTARIUS, conjunct the Galactic Center exactly and square to Chiron the WOUNDED HEALER.

I’m feeling this already.  If you have planets conjunct to the great cosmic G.C.  opposite at 27 GEMINI in a square at 27 VIRGO or at 27 PISCES where CHIRON is you will be feeling this aching wound of the Patriarchy in all its vastness. Not just the PATRIARCHAL wounds but all old KARMIC woundings; I spoke about this in my weekly preview. 

Venus trine Pluto Astrology Tara Greene

                      charcoal drawing by Napoleon Brousseau


We may be feeling ground down; reduced to rubble; exhausted and at our wit’s end. If the ego-which can be symbolized by MARS heroic efforts remains stubborn defensive and refuses to surrender – a helplessness can set in. 

THE SUN which symbolizes the ego is in trine to JUPITER RETROGRADING in SCORPIO brings great spiritual LIGHT to have trust and faith. 

Jupiter Retrograde is regressing us back through our present life wounds and even past life memories- the PISCES the collective unconscious. 


This is a great healing energy

The Moon echoes this HEALING TRINE on the 16th/17th NEW Moon conjuncts CHIRON at 26/27 degrees PISCES.

The LUCK of the Irish will be with all of us.The Irish were the great bards poets and soulful ones. Still are.

We have a choice- to keep defending what is hurting us as in Stockholm syndrome or surrender- which is PISCES – Give it up to God or Goddess give it up to your Higher Self and Guardian Angels. 

If you have planets at 26-29 CANCER you will get to feel the Grand Water Trine. 

This is the symbol of the HANGED MAN in the Tarot # 12

Have faith and trust says JUPITER RETROGRADE in SCORPIO

 Yes it’s familiar and “safe” but we keep self-sabotaging- we keep doing the same unconscious behavior over and over because we don’t know who we would be if we stopped. If we over-identify with our wounds we get stuck in “woundology” as Dr. Carolyn Myss says. see link below-

It is only by surrendering into our deepest and most shameful sacred wounds do find that the Source will catch us and hold us and envelop us in love.

This is a collective “DARK NIGHT OF THE SOUL” symbolized by tarot card #18 the MOON- which is also Pisces. 

“In the dark night of the soul bright flows the river of God.”- John of the Cross
 It is a necessary pre-requisite for healing and for the next stage which is symbolized by the SUN #19 the return to the light. Pisces is the source. 

Mars squares CHIRON on the 13/14th

The wounds get stronger and may  be felt or denied even more. Further amplifying the traditional Masculine egoic defenses against the Divine GREAT Mother. These defenses affect both men and women. 

 Mars energy in CAPRICORN is usually more grounding stable and embodied.Capricorn is a feminine sign and I believe was originally the GREAT MOTHER.

We are healing collectively in stages.  Now is the time to fully feel your anger at being hurt wounded raped shamed and ignored. The angry defenses or Pisces denial through addictions is the fragile ego’s attempt to protect itself and survive at all costs.

Feel it all. Let vulnerability be our greatest strength.  

This is all part of the Great Healing.

Mars enters CAPRICORN on the 17th and goes OUT of BOUNDS but I’ll write about that separately because it is very important. 

Call upon Archangel Michael with his flaming sword or upon LILITH  at 13 degrees CAPRICORN exactly opposite to the largest STAR SIRIUS and opposite to the U.S. SUN.

STORMY DANIELS is embodying LILITH as the Sacred Prostitute Archetype. She is heading for a showdown with Trump as symbolizing the U.S.

It’s our party and we can cry if we want to. The Galactic Center is inexorably drawing all light and matter back to that Source which is the Cosmic Yoni the fount of creation or one of them.

Let me know how you are feeling.  Please share widely.

March 13

The heaviest aspect of the week is


Saturn puts up roadblocks to Love. Saturn tests your heart and your values. The karmic planet can work two ways- it can either bring people into your life who you are meant to meet or bring long lasting serious relationships to an end. It depends on each individuals karma in that relationship.

Saturn brings hard lessons in love that teach us something if value.

Saturn matures you. Depending on how old you are Saturn’s hard lessons show how far you’ve come since the last Saturn square which is 7 years ago.

Saturn is respect, seniority and success in the world. This is the time for women-Venus, to step forward and assert feminine values into Saturn patriarchal corporate structure.

The lightest and most positive aspect this week

13/14 SUN trine JUPITER

PISCES Sun brings to light our unconscious feelings, hidden emotions, and shadows out into the light for easy access to the already full on intensity of JUPITER Rx. In SCORPIO. We need to review and receive the denied rejected, addictions and denials to be transformed with PISCES compassion.

Trines are positive so flow with the emotions until you have given the. Full throttle.

13/14th Mars in SAGITTARIUS squares CHIRON

Telling your truth helps in the healing. Your story matters.

17th The NEW MOON in Pisces

All New moons are new beginnings and this one is the in the last sign of Pisces. paradoxically this is the last moon of the season in the natural pagan cycle.

It’s a time of completion in the northern hemisphere as winter ends on March 20th and Spring begins in the Southern Hemisphere on the 21st.

Plan your next 3 month goals.

March 18/19

Pisces Sun conjunct Chiron

The healing continues to intensify,

Remember how important it is to fully let go of old baggage and unconscious patterns of behaviour.

CHIRON has been travelling through PISCES since 2010. We are now ending this transit of the 12th sign as well as concluding a 50 year cycle.

Chiron enters ARIES on APRIL 17 marking this new beginning.

CHIRON turns Retrograde at 2+ degrees ARIES on JULY 4th how synchronous this is the day of the greatest vulnerability.

Chiron will regress back into the ocean of the unconscious for one last baptism on September 26/ 27th remains in Pisces at 26+ degrees squaring the Galactic Center at years end.

We only have so much time to heal so many wounds. Remember this is a #11 year and we need to remember who we really are in all our magnificence.

Test ideas and AI Galactic sex adventures


This is a test of words ideas and communications. Perhaps it’s like the riddle of the Sphynx as Saturn has to do with history.  It’s an important element in Sophocles, Oedipus the King.

“What goes on four feet in the morning, two feet at noon, and three feet in the evening?”

Before jumping into anything in an ARIES way harness Saturn’s leaden running shoes to your feet. That’ll slow you down. 


MARS is on the GALACTIC CENTER So this is a Galactic sexual AI menage a trois.  Think BARBARELLA. 

Let your imagination run wild. Mars in SAGITTARIUS is petty raunchy as most Centaurs are.  Tell your fantasy- you know Mars in Sagittarius -hoof in mouth. Horseshoes for good luck.

The urge for travel adventure and risk-taking with high spirits and lots of laughter may come through you dreamscape.

Mars trine URANUS is great for wild and crazy inventions too-

thinking outside the Galactic Center. Meditate all day and ask to tune into that HIGHER and HIGHER CONSCIOUSNESS. 

“You’re love is lifting me higher and higher. “

Good fora new brand of spaced out humor. 

SUN in PISCES sextiles PLUTO in CApRIcorn

Put some sparkle on PLUTO. He showed us he had a heart. Gotta love the planet that symbolized death-rebirth transformation and the shadows.

This is a holy oneness seeing all of life as a constant oceanic round of birth death-rebirth infinitely. My husband and I were talking about time travel.  We have always felt that time is actually moving backward not forwards as our egos would like it to be. 

THIS is a great day for compassion and for letting go of a lot of old shame pain guilt shadows addictions. So many people are feeling empowered to talk about their sexual abuse stories and to release them now. It vital that we do so. Anything that has been lurking in your own shadow- hatred-jealousy-greed- self-righteousness pride- racism- self-sabotage-self-loathing- let all of that arise in your prayers and let it go. 

Capricorn MOON makes two nice sextiles to NEPTUNE in PISCES and SUN and in the meantime conjuncts PLUTO in CAPRICORN.

A great creative energy combined with deep soulfulness.

I have been feeling my crown chakra to be pulsating and super open to downloading a lot of higher dimensional energy lately. I believe that the more emotional secrets and shame and unconscious material that millions of women and men are doing right now is actually opening up new corridors of light.  To get higher you must get lower. 

How are you feeling these energies?

Watch your dreams closely these days. 

I had very complex dreams last night. In one sequence I was yelling at an obese woman.  Dreams always speak in puns. I was wondering about this when I woke up. What does the Fat lady symbolize? The “fat lady” or the phrase “it ain’t over until the fat lady sings” is generally understood to be referencing the stereotypically overweight sopranos of Richard Wagner’s Ring Cycle. The “fat lady” is the Valkyrie Brünnhilde, who is traditionally presented as a very buxom lady with a Viking horned helmet, spear and a round shield. Her farewell scene is very long and leads directly to the finale of the whole Ring Cycle. The Götterdämmerung is about the end of the world -or at least the world of the Norse Gods in a very significant way  so ironically “it is all over when the fat lady sings.”

Capricorn Devil Moon weekend Astrology

We’re down to earth and devilish this weekend as the Moon is in CAPRICORN

Capricorn Moon traits by Tara Greene

The weekend’s planets caution that feelings will be rather inhibited and stone cold sober so that control can be maintained. This could be a good thing after the PISCES overwhelm.

There will be some challenges and obstacles as the Capricorn Moon makes hard aspects- squares

to VENUS in ARIES- in women’s independence relationships values and money

to MERCURY in ARIES- in cutting off people’s words; in spontaneous communications.

The CAPRICIOUS MOON conjuncts its father- SATURN-its ruling planet.

in the TAROT Capricorn is associated with the Card #15 The DEVIL 

Tarot card Trump THE DEVIL and Capricorn Tara Greene

The Tarot of Jean Dodal
originals (Paris c. 1701) preserved in the French National Library and restoration

 The DEVIL is very misunderstood. Yes you can start playing Sympathy for the DEVIL now by the Rolling Stones. 

 The DEVIL was the Catholic Church’s way of turning Pagan PAN the horned male horny-goat-hoofed fertility  God into something bad and wrong as they wanted to make sex sinful so that they could control their believer’s behaviors. 

The DEVIL is seductive because sex is one of the most basic drives in nature because life just needs to keep going.  

So be careful of being seduced by your own unconscious drives for sex power and being in control.  It sounds Scorpio like right?


This can be a time to be responsible mature and state you are ready to make a long-term commitment-like marriage. Yes a serious commitment to any relationship or business deal would be appropriate.

“LUKE I AM YOUR FATHER.” is what Darth Vader actually says to young Luke.

You know about “The Mandala Effect”? see link below if you don’t

A CAP. Moon conjunct SATURN indicates a run-in with a male authority-the government- literally your dad or any older male figure. The PATRIARCHY is Capricorn and Saturn’s strict Bible image of an angry punishing authoritarian male God-figure. Saturn is conservative and traditional-like the NRA which is going to sue Florida for creating stricter gun laws.

in PST MERCURY squares SATURN too for extra emphasis

So your words have weight. Be careful what you say.

DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME begins at 2:00 am on March 11 EST

MERCURY SATURN square off in EDT and GMT.

The energy shifts quite a lot on SUNDAY but I don’t want to spoil that for you.

You’ll have to come back and see.

Please fill out this poll. I need to know how you will feel about me changing the way I write this blog. And I need to know if you are real people out there.

Have a great weekend. Blessings
