Charm anyone, Mercury Trines Jupiter,13:13

A lovely Air Trine between the MESSENGER of communications, magic, markets, thieves and tricksters with the magnanimous JOVIAL JUPITER June 13 at 13+ degrees of GEMINI/ LIBRA at 8:45 am PDT/ 11:45 am EDT/ 3:45 pm GMT.

Use this energy to sell anything to anybody. This is a lovely magical energy guaranteed to make any tongue-tied person speak easily.Use it to persuade someone to talk to you,or fall in love with you or travel with you. Talk your way into a big deal, a job or anything dealing with International affairs or justice.

This is great for comedy writers as Jupiter rules humor. Jupiter always brings optimism, positive energy, trust and faith.

If you are a writer this is guaranteed to open any writer’s blocks. Just tune into Jupiter’s energies and let the stories and dialogues come through you. 

It’s a big windbag, a long-winded tale, a dualistic never-ending story. It’s very flighty, the balloon is definitely going UP. 

If you have planets at 13 degrees AQUARIUS then you get to have a big fat Grand Air trine. 

Check out where 13 degrees GEMINI / LIBRA is in your natal chart for clues about what’s the best direction to use this energy personally with. 

FAMOUS CELEBRITIES Born with Mercury trine Jupiter:

Oprah Winfrey, Mercury in Aquarius trines Jupiter in GEMINI-of course!

George Washington also had it in Aquarius to Libra

Dennis Rodman has it from Gemini to Aquarius 

Remember MERCURY is opposite to LILITH at 13+ degrees SAGITTARIUS  

So conversing with the Dark Goddess now is strengthened. See yesterday’s article.

I find the #13 repetitions very synchronous as well. The # 13 is not unlucky. It is the number of moon cycles in the year. 13 is the number of the Goddess and fertility.

MERCURY SQUARES NEPTUNE @ 14 degrees PISCES @ 11:29 pm EDT

Open up your mind’s eye and really learn to communicate. NEPTUNE is very strong in the skies now virtually stationary read to turn RETROGRADE JUNE 16 @ 14 degrees PISCES.  Sit and meditate on this energy. This is a doubly magical aspect uniting the mind and the emotions. The mental and spiritual bodies need to  merged into one. This is what Pisces does best. Just follow Beatle John Lennon’s instruction to Tomorrow Never Knows.

“Turn off your mind relax and float down stream
It is not dying, it is not dying
Lay down all thoughts, surrender to the void,
It is shining, it is shining.
Yet you may see the meaning of within
It is being, it is being
Love is all and love is everyone
It is knowing, it is knowing
And ignorance and hate mourn the dead
It is believing, it is believing
But listen to the colour of your dreams
It is not leaving, it is not leaving
So play the game “Existence” to the end
Of the beginning, of the beginning.”- 1966

April Fools for love, be in the now

It’s April 1st, April Fools day!  CELEBRATE!

April Fool's Day Tarot Tara Greene

RIDER WAITE TAROT TRUMP # 0 and #22 

Celebrated since 1300’s, the Romans’ had a special day called the Hilaria, thousands of years ago. Various culture’s always had a special day for tomfoolery, switching roles and playing practical jokes.

The Fool, is also the Joker whose symbol survives onto modern playing cards. The Fool is  a Trickster a very important archetype from many cultures. The God LOKI is a trickster God in Norse mythology. The coyote trickster tales of Native American  wisdom is another. He is a god and yet not, he can change genders, he often gets him or herself into a mess. He can be a clown teacher and we learn from the clown’s crazy antics, a coyote or the Fool’s mistakes. 

The trickster is known as Nezha in Chinese mythology carrying a cosmic ring around his shoulder. In Japan he is known as Kitsune.  Bugs Bunny, Wile E. Coyote, Kokopelli in South- West stories, Steve Martin in The Pink Panther character, Jerry Lewis’s comedy and many cartoons portray the trickster/fool archetype which we laugh at to laugh at ourselves. 

The Joker can also symbolize Death and treachery and have a very dark side like the villain in Batman, especially the one portrayed by Heath Ledger. 

The Fool emanates from the Top of the Tree of Life from the Godhead directly. He is like the planet Mercury, a mercurial always changing element. We can allow our minds to play tricks on us.

 The TAROT, that archetypal road to enlightenment has THE FOOL as its first and last symbol. Both zero and #22 a Master number.  Zero is the void, nothing, infinity, the circle, naught, no ego, no past, no future, being in the NOW. 

Traditionally the Fool in the Tarot is a young man in tattered clothing carrying all his worldly belongs in a tiny sack and stepping naively off of a cliff with a little dog {his instincts} biting at his heels. 

 The Trickster is a wounded and the whole child. He symbolizes the eternally young soul bravely entering a new incarnation carrying hardly any baggage.

Today Be the Fool, a Merry Prankster, a Joker, be a fool for love. Be a Fool because who really cares what other people think? be in the NOW. THE FOOL symbolizes enlightenment. 

Be The FOOL which is like the Inner child, naive, open, innocent. The Fool’s counterpart or shadow is the KING, The EMPEROR #4 which symbolizes power, authority, the leader, like Putin or Obama.

The King always had court jester’s by his side to keep him humble. In archetypal symbolism the FOOL is really the wise one, whose instincts and pure knowledge are wide open and untainted by expectations, whereas the Emperor is the ego, and can become over inflated with his own power and authority. 

ENJOY this day.  Act like an Idiot.

Steve Martin comedy is the best medicine astrology

I’ve been in love with Steve Martin  since his SNL days, in the white suit before his trademark premature white hair. He was the very first rock star comedian. He is one of my fave comedians of all time. My dad used to tell jokes all the time so there is that comedy/ daddy love thing.

Steve is as you might suspect -a Triple Leo- with Pluto conjunct Ascendant and SUN in the 1st house. He is a natural performer, STAR, child-like kid, big-hearted, slapstick, charismatic leader. Also a writer, a banjo playing art connoisseur.

Steve Martin the pink panther astrology Tara Greene

Steve Martin Astrology Tara Greene

His Mercury in VIRGO -is in its own sign, Very strong in his 2nd house of his resources conjunct JUNO, the feminine form of genius. He is a perfectionist, very organized, and has a great memory. He is a serious intellectual.

His Moon conjunct Lilith, Vesta and surrounded by Ceres in Scorpio right on his I.C.

He is a very private person who is very intense emotionally. Steve may feel deeply rejected deep deep down. He knows what he wants and he gets it. He likes to be in control. Women love him. He is a natural outlaw and a naturally great detective,knowing how to put his soul into everything he does.

VENUS conjunct SATURN conjunct the North Node in Cancer in the 12th house

Steve is very emotionally secretive and hidden. He draws on his own deep well of feelings. Very spiritual deep down is where his riches are.  He is an old soul. He loves beautiful traditional art, and is quite conservative. Steve was in a long-term relationship with fellow entertainer Bernadette Peters for many years, he has been married twice and became a father late in life. His home is his safe haven.

JUPITER in VIRGO conjunct Chiron conjunct NEPTUNE in LIBRA in the 3rd house of communications. Steve has most of his emphasis in the 3rd house of communications.

Jupiter rules comedy,and it is square to the Galactic Center. Steve channels his humour from a much higher perspective. He is a scientist with comedy. His own vulnerability is what makes Steve so naturally funny. He is a true artist and communicates his art with grace and style with  Neptune in Libra.

and MARS conjunct URANUS in GEMINI in the 11th. He’ a wild chaotic and crazy GUY!

Yes literally the description to one of his earliest SNL characters. Steve has a dual nature of course and is like a big kid. He is a team player and loves to collaborate. 

NUMEROLOGY #5

Steve is a number 5 in the Tarot, his personality and soul number. Interesting, the symbol of the POPE, Steve is the HIGH PRIEST of comedy.  Taurus ruled, it governs speakers, solid, resourceful, stubborn, earthy, grounded artistic people who work hard and need to speak their truth and listen to their higher selves in order to make life easy for themselves and be the spokesperson for God which they symbolize.

STEVE MARTIN comedian extraordinaire  

Lorne Michaels, Celebrating SNL40 Astrology

Thank you Saturday Night Live for making our lives funnier, richer and more enlightening for generations. SNL is celebrating 40 years of Television comedy broadcasts. I love comedy. Who doesn’t? I have always felt that comedy is the best medicine. You can sneak almost any satiric, ironic statement in through comedy in a way that is very effective. We need to be able to laugh at ourselves.

SNL40 cast Astrology Tara Greene

SNL cast for 40 years

 SNL has become a cultural icon. The show has nurtured and launched numerous funny people to stardom.  Bill Murray, Jimmy Fallon, Eddie Murphy, Tina Fay, Amy Poehler, Kristin Wiig, Will Farrell,  Adam Sandler, Billy Crystal, Mike Meyers, Dan Akroyd are just some of the cast members who make us laugh in so many ways. 

I think I started watching SNL in 1976. I have tuned in over the years off an on for many a Satuday night.

Behind SNL is the “God of comedy” producer  Lorne Michaels. Born in  Toronto, Canada, I went to the same High School as Lorne, Vaughan Road Collegiate and my older cousin Carol was in his class.

Who is Lorne Michael’s? What are the planetary influences behind his success allowing him to helm so much creativity for all these years. Since April 3, 2013 Lorne is also the executive producer of the Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon. 

Lorne said “comedy is so clear.”

Lorne is a SCORPIO born November 17, 1944 in Toronto as Lorne Lipowitz. I have no exact birth time so I am using noon for a famous public personality. Here’s his Natal chart with the October 11, 1975 transits of the very first broadcast of Saturday Night Live with the Not Ready For Prime Time Players. 

SNL Lorne Michaels astrology Toronto Tara Greene

Scorpio’s love to be in control. Lorne has Mars, Scorpio’s ruling planet conjunct his Sun amping up his amazing  eagle eye ability to focus, hone in on and be in power. Lorne is confident, a warrior, a martial artist to whatever he puts his sites on and he can certainly be intimidating. He can be very volatile and has a big temper. For this noon chart the SUN where you shine the brightest, with Mars is in the 10th house of worldly fame. Lorne has always been fiercely driven to achieve his goals.

Where does the comedic ability come in? Glad you asked. Sagittarius is the sign of Humor. Lorne has the Moon in Sagittarius conjunct to Mercury the planet of communications. This makes him an excellent communicator, he graduated from University as an Enlish major in Toronto. Further strengthening his luck in comedy is the fact that Jupiter, the ruling planet of Sagittarius is squaring his Natal Moon from the sign of the perfectionist, detail oriented, hard-working Virgo. Yes comedic analysis is Lorne’s calling his vocation and he is a workaholic.

Lorne’s good-humored Sagittarius moon is also why he married into a comedic dynasty. His first wife, Rosie Shuster was the daughter of famed Wayne & Shuster comedy duo, another Canadian icon legacy. 

Lorne was destined to be off the wall, push the edges of comedy and be unique because he has the planet of weird, wacky, freedom loving, revolutionary planet Uranus in GEMINI opposite to his Moon. Lorne has that infamous Gemini-ish two sides to him. He stays very young because his mind is always open and questioning.  Lorne has always been analytically inventive, someone who pushes the edge emotionally and in communications, He is a strong person who has always marched to his own drummer, and been quite a wild card.

Lorne has a Cardinal T-square in his chart between Venus in Capricorn opposite Saturn in Cancer  in square to Neptune,which is also conjunct to Lilith at zero degrees of Libra.. He has always been very mature, disciplined and hard-working with Saturn opposite Venus. He is  practical and respects order.

Lorne’s Saturn in Cancer is conjunct to the U.S. Sun at 13 degrees, making him destined to work in the U.S. This makes him the patriarch and family nurturer and protector. Everyone who works for him is part of his family, although he expects respect and loyalty. Lilith conjunct Neptune is interesting. Neptune in Libra, a generational sign, is spiritually his gift is to be a go-between, an ambassador, a champion of the underdog and the taboo. He has also championed many women, who would have had no place to speak in society, Tina Fey acknowledged this fact about Lorne.

Lorne’s North Node in Cancer indicates he is to use his past life experiences of structuring, building and business acumen to nurture and provide a safe nurturing space for others. 

OCTOBER 11,1975 first SNL broadcast.

At the first SNL broadcast in 1975 the transiting planets, Pluto and Neptune were in an exact sextile at 9 degrees Libra/Sagittarius. Pluto rules the collective unconscious and Neptune the dreams, illusions, escapism, addictions, and the medium of film and TV. Sextiles are easy energy flow.

Transiting Pluto was conjunct to Lorne’s natal Neptune and Neptune was conjunct to his natal Mercury, Moon in Sagittarius bringing easy powerful benefits. Pluto also rules Scorpio’s amplifying Lorne’s abilities. Mercury Retrograde was also sextiling his Natal Moon Mercury combo. Mercury Retrograde by transit indicates the thinking out of the box, original mentality.

Pluto is the soul and Neptune the dream. SNL was born as these two planets were also in sextile to his Natal Pluto in Leo at 10 degrees. Pluto in Leo is leadership, royalty, self-expression, giving love. Its amazing in retrospect to see how the planets were perfectly aligned to assist Lorne and why it all came together at that time.

For the collective, Saturn and Uranus were also in an exact square at 1 degree Leo to Scorpio Uranus was also sextiling Lorne’s natal Venus.

Jupiter was in Aries at 2o degrees in 1975 trining Lorne’s Moon and his North Node at 19 degrees Cancer. 

The Moon was in Capricorn having just passed over Lorn’s Natal Venus. Capricorn Moon’s indicates staying power, longevity, weight. 

I will be watching the epic 3.5 hour 40th anniversary special. Will you too?

Pee Wee’s Playhouse is back. I know you are…

http://nyti.ms/1DdYfC7 from the New York Times by J. Hoberman Oct 15 2014 DVD 

Pee Wee’s Playhouse for the uninitiated after a ten-year wait is now available on BLU RAY from SHOUT! Factory

PEE WEE was and always will be a mind-blowing fun romp of an ambiguous anarchic totally artsy children’s Saturday morning show that was wholly original. Something visually creative is juxtaposed with something else and everything is moving. It perfectly captures that age’s art movement in the late 80’s. If you want to be a big kid and HEH HEH like Pee- Wee you’ve gotta steep yourself in the Playhouse.

Some famous Pee Wee-isms- “I know you are but what am i?”

 
Pee-wee Herman (Paul Reubens) and Miss Yvonne (Lynne Marie Stewart) on “Playhouse.” CreditShout! Factory

Some performers invent personas so boldly stylized that they refuse to break character, at least in public. Mae West was one. As were Harpo Marx and W. C. Fields. Stephen Colbert broke character only recently; but Pee-wee Herman -PAUL REUBENS  held on for years.

Like Mr. Colbert, Mr. Reubens used a regular television show as a vehicle for his invented personality: a manic, nerdy man-child in a too-small gray suit, red bow tie and lipstick. “Pee-wee’s Playhouse” (broadcast for five seasons, starting in fall 1986, in the Saturday-morning cartoon ghetto) was a fully realized private universe. It was also, as demonstrated by the complete 45-episode series and one Christmas special out on Blu-ray from Shout! Factory, a series of strongly conceptualized pieces. As packed as each episode is with outlandish props, linguistic pranks — many based on each week’s meant-to-be-screamed “secret word” — and running gags, PLAYHOUSE  is far too rich to binge-watch.

One of many Pee-weevian paradoxes was the instant popularity of Mr. Reubens’s hermetic spectacle, which made its debut, on CBS, the same month that Blue Velvet  David Lynch’s darker but not dissimilar exercise in personal fetishes and weird Americana, opened in movie theaters to an equally passionate response. “Playhouse,” which originally cost a sizable $325,000 per episode and was shot at first in a cramped SoHo loft, took viewers to a candy-colored world of sexual ambiguity and a realm of total anthropomorphism.

Photo

Every object was potentially alive: the window, the chair, the floor. The creatures who called the Playhouse home included miniature dinosaurs, sentient machines and a refrigerator of foodstuffs that enjoyed an ongoing fiesta. The mise-en-scène was wildly cluttered, and the show offered a veritable taxonomy of animation styles, combining puppetry, clay animation and video effects, while excerpting Depression-era cartoons on the living TV monitor, Magic Screen.

As Pee- Wee was an adult who acted like a child, so the “Playhouse” aesthetic blended high and low tech, the avant-garde and the vulgar. Art world precursors and analogues include Betty Boop, Red Grooms, the underground animator Sally Cruikshank, the midnight movie Forbidden Zone, East Village performance art, neo-Pop painters like Kenny Scharf, and Raw magazine (an early publisher of the cartoonist GARY PANTER, who was one of the show’s three original production designers).

The Playhouse was further distinguished by its racial diversity and frisky gender bending. Jambi the blue-faced genie (John Paragon) and the elaborately be-wigged Miss Yvonne (Lynne Marie Stewart), “the most beautiful woman in Puppet Land,” each in their way evoked drag performers. Dixie the cabdriver (Johann Carlo) and Reba the mail lady (a pre-law & Order S. Epatha Merkerson) were notably assertive women, while Cowboy Curtis (Laurence Fishburne) and the various hunky beach boys who drifted in and out of the Playhouse were bashful and flirtatious.

Not surprisingly, “Pee-wee’s Playhouse” quickly attracted the attention of academics interested in what was not yet known as “queer theory” or “gender studies.”

“Perhaps what is most unsettling about Pee-wee is the way he straddles the line between sexual knowledge and ignorance, as if he were somehow pre- and post-pubescent at the same time,” Ian Balfour wrote in one of three scholarly articles on “Playhouse” published in the special “Male Trouble” May 1988 issue of Camera Obscura: A Journal of Feminism and Film Theory. Perhaps it was this ambiguity that caused a career-stifling public outcry during the summer of 1991 when, with the show in permanent reruns, Mr. Reubens was busted for indecent exposure in an X-rated movie theater. Pee-wee was post-pubescent after all!

Evidently, Mr. Reubens grew tired of “Playhouse,” and the Shout! box is unavoidably front-loaded. Mr. Panter moved on after the first season; the original King of Cartoons and his herald, Dixie, soon departed as well. Many of the most memorable bits of business occurred in the show’s second season, including Pee-wee’s giant underpants, the pajama party during which he marries a bowl of fruit salad and the appearance of the friendless alien Zyzzybalubah.

The cast thinned a bit during the final three seasons. Jambi and the King of Cartoons receded while the more conventional performers Miss Yvonne and Cowboy Curtis became increasingly central. (Truly, having played a teenage Army grunt, a villainous Ike Turner and the guru Morpheus, as well as this Jheri-curled buckaroo, Mr. Fishburne is among the most versatile actors of his generation.) Still, the show remained remarkably consistent.

First telecast on Nov. 3, 1990, “Camping Out”is a great episode, featuring a real-time bathroom break, a cameo by Sandra Bernhard, a seeming glimpse of Big Bird in the fridge, and excerpts from two classic animations, Oskar Fischinger’s “Alegretto.” and Ub Iwerks’s “The Pincushionman” (a.k.a.”Balloon Land”). It is also the show in which Pee-wee throws caution to the wind: His camping trip with Cowboy Curtis is largely a single-entendre discussion of “wieners” and “buns.”

Shown two weeks later, the final episode, “Playhouse for Sale,” is even more self-reflexive. The secret word is “word.” Magic Screen functions as the host, while, confounded by the obtuseness of either Globey the globe or Pterri the pterodactyl, the ever-sunny Miss Yvonne nearly breaks character herself: “I think I’ve taken one too many trips to Puppet Land!”

My husband Napoleon worked on building the props for the first season in New York in 1986. He built CHAIRY and the Fridge and the animated food props. http://www.napob.com/#!press—pdfs

Almost the Saturn Return of Pee Wee’s first broadcast September 13 1986. Saturn was at 4 degrees of Sagittarius. The North and South Nodes were almost virtually reversed. Jupiter is now exactly trining where Uranus was then at 18 degrees of Sagittarius.

Goodbye to Mars in Scorpio’s Intense, heart and soul wrenching  obsessive dramas, ruthlessness, control playing seductions since July 25. Interesting that on the last day of Mars in Scorpio Toronto Mayor Rob Ford withdraws his re-election bid because of a suspected tumor and his bro Douggy Ford steps in. I had predicted that Rob Ford would not be in the running for the election in my 2014 predictions- see http://www.taratarot.com/id183.html

 Toronto is a Sagittarius city. Things will be heating up in politics- A Sagittarius theme now for sure bound to be comedic.

Wherever MARS is is where the action is literally. Masculine, war god, angry, defensive, sex, passion is CENTAURIFIC.

Sagittarius Centaur Tara Greene

Jean-Baptiste Regnault

The next 6 weeks features, amongst other things- like President Obama’s speech, fighting on foreign soil, religious freedom.

Its so literal. Sagittarius rules Foreigners, International travel, religions, freedom.

The Centaur is the symbol of reigning in the lower instinctive nature through using human higher consciousness. A very spiritual symbol. Chiron the wounded healer is the constellation of  the Archer itself. Healing  through telling the truth is our main drive.

GO ON THE WARPATH for TRUTH-

in advertising, your friends, partners, lovers, Your self.

The Great Black Hole at the center of our Milky way Galaxy is in Sagittarius tropically and Sidereal.

We will be feeling confident, good-humored, enthusiastic, optimistic, a bit reckless, klutzy at times, adventurous, HONEST, easy going and irresponsible. I have my SUN MOON & Mercury in Sagittarius, tell me about it. DO you know whats happening in Sagittarius in your chart?

MARS will heat up that house and those aspects.

We need to be on the rampage and look GALACTICALLY  towards the central BLACK Hole of our common birth. The great Galactic VOID VAGINA,/time tunnel/wormhole is our commonality, just as here on earth, as above, so below -we are all born of woman. The Masculine is driven home towards the wisdom of the great  Cosmic Mother Unconsciously. Pay attention to this. This is a very clear symbol I am getting while here in Sedona.

SAGITTARIUS, the 9th sign, is the last fire sign, and known for telling the truth. The CENTAUR is a mutable sign, I just saw the word mutable as mutating. The next 6 weeks is a mutating initiation into warrior truth, higher justice tune into these higher teachers for wisdom.

Jupiter Sag’s ruling planet is the planet of the Higher Masters. Jupiter rules courts of justice and judges, Animal rights, higher education, philosophy, sports, preaching, gypsies, teachers, the military, risk-taking, gambling.

SAGITTARIUS  down side

self-righteousness, procrastination, hypocrisy, risk-taking, gambling, uncivilized, brutal, laceratingly honest.

Fess up now.

MARS will Square NEPTUNE  on Sept. 21 the International Day of PEACE

The two tinders of war and peace are rubbing against each other.

Act on igniting your dreams. Or being honest with your addictions.

Mars Trines Uranus on YOM KIPPUR Oct 4/5

Throw an unexpected bomb in a trench on the Anniversary of the  1973 war. Its the mid-life crisis from that time. Read Uranus opposite natal Uranus.

MARS TRINES JUPITER Oct 8 on an ARIES TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE @ 16 degrees Sagittarius

Good one for all Fire signs.

Stallion  SEX and LOVE

Sagittarius and Fire sign men will want freedom to roam sexually during this period. Sagittarius/Centaurs are animal like in their nature. Women too, especially Sagittarius or fire sign ones will feel the passion to be set free. If you love your Sagittarius person, set them free. How you gonna keep them down on the farm? They hate to be chained, caged or ridden.

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.

Sagittarius the literally INSPIRATIONAL CARD of the Day

by Josephine Wall 

The 9th sign, the CENTAUR symbolizes the human intellect over the animal nature. This sign is known for truth tellers, philosphers, gamblers, eternal optimists, gypsies, teachers, judges, historians, motivational speakers, politicians, often klutzy, metaphysicians brings all of these energies into play. Most especially blabbermouthing, as Sagittarius is infamous for having HOOF IN MOUTH disease. I should know.
