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.

Robin Williams Aladdin ending- 

WHAT DREAMS MAY COME – 

Gemini LOVERS Primer,astrology by Tara Greene

May 20 2014 Sun enters Gemini the sign of the naturally bi polar TWINS

 known as a “FUN da MENTAL”  sign. I made that up years ago.

Its a  fast monthly mind games romp while, changing partners, doe see doe-ing, and smiling with charming flirtyness.

GEMINI is Ruled by that fancy fleet- footed messenger  of the Gods – MERCURY, also the planet.

MERCURY is  consciousness, intelligence, analysis, communications. The SOuRCE in some senses.

GEMINI has what is called PEUR mentality and actions, for the more psychologically minded. There may be much mental Ado about not much during  Gemini times. Gemini is a light-headed air sign, dare we say Air head?

But ya gotta love ’em, They  move too fast for you to pin them down. Yes social butterflies those Gemini’s are.. NEVER EVER TRY TO PIN THEM DOWN. Their charm will win you over, they can sell refrigerators to Inuit folks. They shine in public speaking, disseminating info.

GEMINI men take for ever, if they ever do settle down. They naturally wander. They need some extra grounding planets or the MOON in CANCER or strong  Taurus energy to make them stable. If they don’t have earth strong in their charts FORGET IT unless you like a wandering lover. 

GEMINI’s get easily bored, they forget anniversaries,they need something to talk about, anything to  keep their jaws and minds going. They do jump from angel to devil- avoiding anything that would pin them down to taking a single stand.

Do you find that really fascinating?

Their main thrust is to gather information, move like the wind, quick change artists,curious,wiry, young, forever young.

DO YOU HAVE GEMINI SUN MOON VENUS OR MARS?

IF SO it is very difficult for you to be in a monogamous relationship. Your nature is to have your cake and eat  it too. You will have to work hard to come to terms with your roving childlike qualities. 

Mercury/Hermes Gemini's planet ruler

used by FTD florist as their symbol

MERCURY rules two signs – GEMINI a masculine Air element sign and VIRGO a feminine earth sign element.

VIRGO’s might be heard to be coughing and choking on that bit of info. But yes its true.

GEMINI is the eternal child whose curiosity to mentally explore every nook and cranny and lives in Never Never land like PETER PAN. Rarely ever show up on time.

VIRGO gathers, organizes, perfects, focuses, remembers, all the scattered details in a quite an OCD manner. If you seek intellect, humility, servers, obsessively organized workaholics, they love to read and have great often photographic memories. VIRGO is the polar opposite of GEMINI in so many ways. Yes they are very focussed on work, diligent,worry worts, often work in the health field, terribly disciplined in diet, exercise, being always punctual to GEMINI’s always late.

                                                                                                      GEMINI is associated with a surprising TAROT SYMBOL

Gemini Tarot ART

Gemini and Sagittarius opposites

THE LOVERS

This association killed me when I first learned the TArot. I already had learned Astrology so to have the LOVERS ASSOCIATED WITH GEMINI blew my mind.  Of course all relationships are about duality, choices, male and female, polar opposites. GEMINI is the POLE Star too.

also shown is  the opposite sign of GEMINI which is  SAGITTARIUS which is associated with ALCHEMY again back to HERMES/MERCURY.

The other card which is associated with the LOVERS #6 is THE DEVIL # 15 which also reduces to #6.

Its all about sacred geometry. The Lovers is the choice to love our dual nature our sexual twin. 

The DEVIL is about fear and separation.

Famed psychologist CARL JUNG said there are only two emotions LOVE AND FEAR.

WHICH WILL YOU CHOOSE?

LOVE or FEAR?

 

 

MERCURY, found  in thermometers. whose actions, hard to pin it down, describes Gemini’s energies perfectly…Quicksilver is also a deadly toxic poison but  can also be used to heal in Homeopath.  Now its in all those energy saving light bulbs and very dangerous.

Mercury’s symbol is the caduceus. Not just an FTD Florist symbol, every MD in the world uses the caduceus to signify the healing profession of MEDICINE. The caduceus was originally employed by Chiron and Asclepius as snakes were used to help heal people in Ancient Greece  Snakes were used in the Oracles at Delphi. Considered to be magical animals of the Goddess since always,two snakes entwined around the central staff or spine is KUNDALINI sexual energy.  The caduceus is an ancient symbol of DNA symbolizes the twin poles of consciousness, balance and the combining of opposites as in ALCHEMY to produce something entirely new. This is a deep psychological image.

Mercury in the TAROT  is  the # 1 symbol THE MAGUS MAGE OR MAGICIAN

MERCURY /Hermes is also the TRICKSTER

famous as COYOTE in Native American legends when your mind plays tricks on you…quess who is to blame?

HERMES is  a hermaphrodite, His name means HERMES & APHRODITE Mercury is both male HERMES and a female VENUS/APHRODITE in one. Yes all Gemini’s have this strong energy. Where is Gemini in your natal chart?

We see the hermaphrodite image in Kurt Hummel from GLEE-

Glee's Mercury Hermes Messenger

May 20 in 2012 there was an Annular Solar eclipse at Zero degrees of Gemini- it was spectacular. The Sun’s entry into Gemini now lights up the events from that time.
