What makes Iggy Pop? stars Astrology

Happy Birthday to IGGY POP April 21 he is 68 years old. The acknowledged Grandfather of  punk, the outrageous unpredictable usually shirtless Iggy led the way for many others to follow. Often imitated there is only one IGGY, never mind Iggy Azalea.

Born James Newell Osterberg Jr. his parents were entirely supportive of him as a young teen. He started out as a drummer with a blues band called The Prime Movers where he got his stage name Iggy. Co-bandmate Michael Erlewine is a prolific genius who created  Matrix Astrology Software the first computerized astrology software in the world in 1977.  

IGGY and MC5: Punk starts here in Detroit City in 1964

They played louder and harder than anyone else and no one wanted to sign them. Kick out the Jams was their first live album.  Iggy became known for his notoriously wild stage act- he originated stage diving. He was inspired by Jim Morrison of the Doors stage presence.

Iggy  wore a maternity dress, white face and aluminum Afro wig for the very first Stooges concert. They were signed by Elektra Records in 1968. Iggy had a worsening heroin addiction at this time. In 1971 he met David Bowie at Max’s Kansas City in New York and Bowie produced Raw Power in 1973. In 1976 Bowie took Iggy along on his Station to Station Tour. 

In 1977 both Bowie and Iggy relocated to West Berlin to kick their drug addictions. Bowie helped him write and produce The Idiot and Lust for Life. They co-wrote China Girl, Tonight and Sister Midnight which Bowie covered himself later.

In 1980 Iggy published an autobiography called I Need More with a forward by Andy Warhol who had  met Iggy when he was still Jim at the Ann Arbor Film Festival in 1966. “I don’t know why he hasn’t made it really big,” wrote the one Pop artist about the other. “He is so good.”

In 1983 Bowie recorded China Girl which helped Iggy’s fortunes as he received royalties. With this support he took three years off to finally overcome his heroin addiction. Then he became a shaman, once he was the wounded healer.

In 1984 he did the title song to the film Repo Man. In 1985 one of his biggest hits Lust For Life was in the popular movie Desperately Seeking Susan with Madonna. He contributed his voice along with Lou Reed in 1985 for an animated film. In 1987 Iggy sung on a ground breaking super artsy video by Japanese composer Ryuichi Sakamoto which won MTV video awards-see below.

Iggy has recorded 16 solo albums to date and still continues to perform live and record. He appeared as a character in the video game Lego Rock Band singing The Passenger and his voice is the tutor. Pop also acts and has appeared in 16 movies including one of my favorites, Jim Jarmusch’s 1995 Dead Man with Johnny Depp and Robert Mitchum with an incredible sound track by Neil Young. 

On April 7, 2011, at age 63, Pop performed “Real Wild Child” on the 10th season of American Idol. The L.A. Times music blog described Pop as being “still magnetic, still disturbing. ” after all these years. 

Lets check out Iggy’ s chart for all of those elements.

po;p star Astrology Tara Greene

From Iggy’s life description you might expect some intense Scorpio, Aries, Leo, Pisces.

Iggy is a solid, earthy, sensuous, body conscious Venusian double Taurus with the Sun and Moon in the 10th house of fame- his parents support of his creativity is in this aspect.

The luninaries are squaring SATURN IN LEO on his 29th degree Cancer Ascendant and also square his Pluto in Leo in the 1st.  Iggy is so very emotional, sensitive and Feminine and Saturn and Pluto give Iggy presence, over the top entertaining mannerism and staying power. Otherwise he would have O.D.’s long ago. He is a trouper, a fighter, a leader,burning to expose his soul in the raw.

Sun and Moon are also opposite Chiron in Scorpio in his 4th house. Iggy is an old soul, who transforms himself, his passion, his fascination with danger, the dark, the taboo, heroin, death and life through his creative Taurus side. This is a shamanic healer aspect.

Iggy has a fearless Mercury MARS ruler of Aries conjunction right on his Mid-Heaven. Iggy is famous for LUST FOR LIFE one of his most successful songs, exemplified in that aspect.That Mercury Mars is opposite NEPTUNE in Libra also right on his I.C. or the roots of his being. Neptune rules spirituality, creativity and addictions. This is the long battle that Iggy fought and also what fuels his creativity, 

JUPITER is in SCORPIO in the 5th house of creativity, performers, love affairs and again that hunger for living larger than life and death, rebirth. Jupiter is in a out of sign Trine with Saturn in Leo. This is a lucky saving angel on Iggy’s shoulders.

IGGY’s South Node at 2 degrees of Sagittarius is also in the 5th house. He has been a philosopher, a teacher, a wanderer, a gypsy, an inspirer, a performer before, perhaps  a magician. I feel he had success before. His North Node is in GEMINI in the 11th house indicated his highest goal is to be the revolutionary, rule breaker, forger, freedom fighter, the one who collaborates with his tribe. 

Uranus in Gemini in the 11th indicate Iggy is a very unique individual and a dualistic minded person. He has a very strong persona, he is a quick change twin-sexed man. He has always cross-dressed and said he did so because there is no shame in dressing like a woman because there is no shame in being a woman. He is a shaman in the ancient sense of the word. 

Iggy has Lilith conjunct Juno in Capricorn squaring his Mars and Mercury. This makes him a champion of women. 

Iggy  is a true original artist who has been faithful to himself all along. This is a rare precious commodity in this world these days.  I admire IGGY for staying true to his heart and soul for being so  OUT THERE and for surviving. In this youth worshipping culture it is important to honor the real survivors. Lesser artists would have abandoned their oevre’s long ago. Thanks Iggy for being you.

Conchita Wurst, who is the Phoenix? Astrology

Conchita Wurst, a bearded drag queen from Austria won the 2014 Eurovision song contest on Saturday May 10 in Copenhagen Denmark and stole million’s of hearts with her powerful song “Rise like a Phoenix.” 

Conchita Wurst Astrology by Tara Greene

“Conchita” whose birth name is Tom Neuwirth made a huge political crossdressing transgender positive statement which has greatly angered Russia’s recent anti-gay laws. Conchita’s wining speech was about promoting peace and tolerance and respect for everyone.

“It was not just a victory for me but a victory for those people who believe in a future that can function without discrimination and is based on tolerance and respect”.

Underneath the wigs, false eyelashes, corset and beard -Who is Conchita/Tom? Why the big win now? Lets look at his TRANSits and see what the stars say:

TOM Neuwirth/Conchita  is a SCORPIO of course- with a winning song title “Rise like a PHOENIX”  what else would you expect?

Conchita/Tom Neuwirth born November 6, 1988

Eurovision 2014 Conchita Wurst tara Greene astrology

MAY 10 2014 Eurovision Song contest Copenhagen Denmark transits

Tom/Conchita -unknown birth time, I’ve used  noon for someone who achieves worldly status and fame.

The SUN at 14 degrees SCORPIO is conjunct PLUTO- LORD of power, transformation, SEX, rebirth- SCORPIO and is of course on the M.C. the High Noon position at 17 degrees Scorpio. SATURN Lord of KARMA, rebirth and career is retrograding across that point for the 2nd and 3rd time in June retro and direct in August and in fact Saturn turns DIRECT at 16 degrees + Scorpio in late July. The song is all about a Scorpio rebirth, revenge etc. written all about a powerful transit for him ‘s say.

Tom used to be in a boy band and started performing as Conchita in 2011.

His NATAL VENUS is at 9 degrees of LIBRA -its all about beauty, fashion, the show, the image, balancing out the Masculine and Feminine. In the 8th house of SEX and Scorpionic tranformation its secrets, power, kinky taboo things.

His NEPTUNE  is at 9 degrees of Capricorn so Tom has been influenced in his sexual transformation by Pluto and Uranus conjunct to and squaring these 2 planets since that time. Yes this is Tom’s GRAND CARDINAL CROSS Victory in action.

PLUTO Lord of POWER, riches- Tom wins millions and has garnered world wide acclaim and revulsion from this win.

THE POWER OF A SEXY SEXTILE IN ACTION

Transitting Pluto at 13 degrees Caprcorn is now sextiling his NATAL PLUTO at 12 degrees Scorpio which is

sextiling his NORTH NODE at 12 degrees PISCES;which is sextiling the transiting SUN at 19 degrees TAURUS on May 10th

which is sextiling, the DESCENDANT- interractive cusp with all “others” which is sextiling the SOUTH NODE in VIRGO in the 8th house of SEX MONEY POWER, transformation, which is back to where it started at PLUTO.

This forms a  RARE transitting 6 pointed Star of DAVID or a MEKABA it is the symbol of the SACRED MARRIAGE of HEAVEN- masculine and earth- Feminine in one. Obvi- no?

CHIRON at 16+ degrees PISCES is conjunct to Tom/Conchita’s natal CERES- dwarf planet of the Goddess. Conchita is the wounded healer for the Goddess in the 12th house closet of  PISCES who is all compassionate, spiritual, chameleon-like, visionary, artistic, creative, blissed out, ALL INCLUSIVE.

NEPTUNE- PLanetary ruler of  PISCES –

the “Higher octave” of VENUS- women- the spiritual, shape shifting planet of DIVINE LOVE, true spiritual love beyond duality love, has been squaring Tom’s JUPITER in GEMINI- of course, and retrograde at that.

Of course Tom/Conchita is a dual soul. Native American society used to recognize transgender men and allow them to cross dress as women and live as women. They were considered to be twin spirited people and naturally shamans and awarded special status. Jupiter in Gemini gives Tom the gift of the gab, very social, witty, likeable, charming. 

The BLOOD MOON eclipse of April 14 at 25+ degrees LIBRA fell right on the asteroid VESTA in Tom’s natal chart. VESTA is the marker of the ancient TANTRIC Goddesses. They were healers who used sex to purify men.

TRANISTING MARS is RETROGRADE at 9 degrees LIBRA EXACTLY on Tom’s NATAL VENUS,

square to his NATAL NEPTUNE-the visionary and this describes exactly the merging of the masculine/feminine image which CONCHITA projects. Trantiting VENUS is at 8 degrees ARIES exactly opposite and creating a T- square to Tom’s NEPTUNE. DOUBLE whammy!

THE Transiting NORTH NODE at 27 degrees LIBRA- is where the popular focus in the world is.

If you have planets,angles etc here now then YOU are more likely to get acclaim too. NOrth NOde has just crossed Tom’s MERCURY at 29 degrees LIBRA and is conjunct to his VESTA- the Goddess of sacred sexual focus and devotion.

Tom/has his Natal MARS at the zero point of ARIES one of the most powerful degrees in the ZODIAC.  Mars rules his SCORPIO Sun as does PLUTO. This person has HUGE POWER.

Also was born with URANUS and NEPTUNE CONJUNCT in late SAGITTARIUS conjunct to the GALACTIC CENTER as are all the GENERATION Y/ Millenials peeps. This is a transpersonal planetary mystic combination which specifically revolutionizes spiritual sexuality and engages it in a wide wide cosmic lens beyond the mere everyday human.

Tom was meant to kick-start  a new masculine energy. URANUS the planet of individual freedom and new cycles entered ARIES in March 11, 201o then finally entering ARIES on March 11 2011 where it will continue to radically transform and rock our world  in many ways until 2019.

JUPITER will enter LEO in July this year and square Tom’s PLUTO & SUN bringing him greater fame. The Solar Eclipse on October 23 is at ZERO degrees of Scorpio and he must be aware of danger of being shot at or harmed by some crazed anti-gay person.

EVERYONE will be dressing very flamboyantly once Jupiter enters LEO. Tom is kicking off a new fashion trend.

MY PREDICTION- All fashionistas will be sporting beards and beaded ball gowns at the local supermarket and singing karaoke in the aisles.

RISE LIKE A PHOENIX- CONCHITA WURST  

ARE YOU A BOY OR ARE YOU A GIRL -The Barbarians Sept 1965 

Feeling tired? Mars Retrograde Astrology tonic advice

I’m So TIRED by The Beatles

I started writing this article on Saturday night and what with D.S.T. I got too tired and couldn’t finish.

Yes Mars went Retrograde March 1st on a New moon in Libra and Saturn went Retrograde in Scorpio on March 2 but I won’t talk about Saturn right now.

Mars retrograde takes all the spunk out of all men and sucks up all forward moving  energy, much like a Black Hole was supposed to do.

Mars = Sex and Retrograde it’s not happening. So enjoy the break. Being celibate is a necessary spiritual training. ALL RETROGRADES ARE GOOD necessary healthy Rx. Medicines. 

No PORN for  11.5 weeks. Do it as a sacrifice and see what happens in your life.

Retrograde planet periods are TRICKSTER energy. You can learn a lot by NOT DOING what you usually do or take for granted.

Mars has pulled the plug. I felt and saw it right away. It was rather scary. DID YOU FEEL IT TOO?

It’s S L O W culture time. Especially with Saturn Retrograde and Pluto joins in awhile.

SLOW down, its good for you. BABY now you’re moving way too fast.

SLOW DOWN by The Beatles written by Larry Williams 1964

It affects all LIBRA’s most directly, but also all ARIES and SCORPIO peeps as MARS is their  planetary ruler.

Wherever you have the sign of LIBRA and everyone does- from 27 degrees Libra- 9 degrees in your Birth chart that’s Mars retrograde territory till May 19.

Mark off the house or houses and all the planets that will get a conjunction, square or opposition by MARS retro. Those planets, angles etc. energy gets affected too.

As Libra is the sign of RELATIONSHIPS expect OLD FLAMES to re-appear.

You are also re-evaluating your relationships.

 MARS in LIBRA Retrograde makes us very very indecisive.

I have Mars in Libra in my Natal chart so I live with this aspect. Should I or  shouldn’t I? Just like a Mercury Retrograde its NOT a great time to INITIATE, Aries middle name – anything new. But a great time to finish things off. 

What the blazes? you may well ask Aries..

ARIES, your ruling planet makes your energy BACKFIRE. Sucks it up leaving you feeling unfamiliarity enervated. Backdraft that’s what it is.

What me tired? You hellfire, endless balls of energy aren’t used to this. Well learn to take it easy for 7 weeks for a change. Recharge. R-E-S-T. RESIST, REflect, renew, reinvent yourself.

OY POOR SCORPIO’s

Mars as your ruler and SATURN in SCORPIO is like DOUBLE TROUBLE DEMENTORS SUCKING OUT your  life force.

All happiness and sexual energy is gone. You feel cold, barren, depressed, unmotivated, dispassionate, blasé, filled with ennui. You know how Scorps obsess and get in those black goth depressions….

Is that all there is?

Tip # 1 TRY A LITTLE TENDERNESS

Not to mention that MARS is a cross dressing transsexual with MARS in VENUS’ S house of LIBRA for 5 3/4 months in 2014.

Rebalancing the inequality between the sexes is very important right now.

Men need to let go of being in power over, aggressive, domineering, unconscious, competitive aggressiveness. Men suffer  from the Patriarchy too. The unfeeling uncaring tough macho model is mainly inhuman. Men have left their own feminine side, theirs souls, anima, alone, alienated. They have left themselves cut off from life, from love, from vulnerability the great strength, unfeeling, cold, calculating, dishonouring the feminine everywhere. Men have an unfathomable deep wound from bashing the Great Mother and they know that somewhere. 

Men chose death over life, hatred over respect and fear over Love 5,000 years ago and made it an institution. Time for a change. That is what these CARDINAL GRAND CROSSES ARE ALL ABOUT.

This PLANETARY alignment is a DIVINELY orchestrated opportunity

for males to reclaim their own feeling nature, to cry, to be vulnerable, to commune with other men, their brothers, to support and protect women. To stop seeing them as objects, chattel, things to be used for their own immature, egotistical, sexual satisfaction alone. To stop fearing homosexuals, transgender and effeminate men, to open themselves up to experience more of their own nature, which always has a masculine and feminine part. It allows creativity to flow.

Jared Leto Astrology Tara Greene

Jared Leto /Rayon  from Dallas Buyers Club

Masculine and Feminine sides of men 

Like Jered Leto winning the Academy Award for playing Rayon in Dallas Buyers Club. The talented, beautiful Capricorn rock star, , is into Astrology and I am sure he did his transits in advance knowing that the stars were aligning exactly now to help him. As above so below. I’ll check into the fascinating Mr. Leto’s chart soon.

Try a little cross-dressing, explore your feminine side guys. It’s ok. Women need to also see men in a new way. They are hooked on the old macho hero. The modern hero is chivalrous, expresses his feelings, shares household chores, cooking, nurturing the children and respects feminine strength and her need to do her own thing.

This vacuuming up of all the testosterone on the planet makes macho posturing guys furious little boys throwing angry temper tantrums. Mr. Putin anyone?

MARS RETROGRADE in LIBRA is about letting yourself be less than NICE.

You know those perfectionist seeking Socialites Librans? Mars Retrograding allows you to cross over and  allows your shadow side to come out. The work of Debbie Ford in THE DARK SIDE OF THE LIGHT CHASERS was very important in owning your own shadow, your shame, faults, what you worst fear would be, the worst anyone could say or do to you in public. Use this time to feel it. What would be so terrible? 

REhearse it, feel it, allow it, let it go. =FREEDOM.
