It’s all about the Beck, why he won

If you were watching The Grammy Awards Feb 8 with millions of viewers, you, me and everyone in the audience’s jaws dropped as Beck was awarded Album of the Year for “Morning Phase” and Best Rock Album and Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical. Everyone expected Beyonce or Taylor Swift  or Sam Smith to win. Kanye pranked Beck by jumping on stage pretending to protest the win like he did infamously with Taylor Swift. That look on Jay-Z’s face was priceless.

For those under 18, Beck Hansen has written and performed his eclectic blend of music since the early 90’s. He has had been awarded 5 Grammy’s from 16 nominations. He comes from an eclectic family, his Mother was an Andy Warhol superstar and his grandfather one of the Fluxus art movement founders. He was raised in Scientology which he still practices and also identifies as Jewish.You can check out more details about Beck’s life in Wikipedia. 

Let’s check out Beck’s chart as I just wanted to point out why,beside his awesome talent and dedication he won this Surprise Grammy award now.

Beck Grammy Astrology Tara Greene

Beck is a Cancer born July 8 1970 in Los Angeles at 11:59 pm. He is a triple Cancer with Mercury and Mars conjunct to the Sun in the 4th house which the Moon rules. He is a very shy private person, very sensitive, emotional, tender. He is a nurturing man, and probably has sensitive tummy issues. 

Where is his Moon which rules his Cancerian identity, communications and drives?

His Moon is in Virgo in the natural 6th house conjunct PLUTO. The plot thickens. Beck is an obsessive perfectionist who pays attention to the details. A workaholic, who may be OCD, who hones every note. His religion is work and dedication to getting the perfect product out. 

His Aries Ascendant gives him a brash image andshows as edgy and high-strung. But he is so internal, so inwardly focussed you don’t see that Aries exterior. I bet he taps his fingers, or feet constantly.

Known for his early quirky songs like Devils Haircut. Saturn is the Devil and Beck has Saturn in earthy, sensuous, music ruled Taurus in the 2nd house of resources and physical wealth. Saturn is opposite to Neptune in his 8th house. Neptune rules all artists, musicians and spiritual people at 28 degrees Scorpio. He is a man who manifests his dreams, through patience persistence, fine tuning, obsessing. Saturn and Neptune form a T-square to VENUS also ruler of arts, relationships, and music at 26 degrees of Leo in his 6th house of profession. It is close to the fixed star Regulus. Beck does have star power. 

Beck has Jupiter in Libra in his 7th house of marriage which is square to his Mercury and Mars. He expands his very internal emotions into beautiful songs about what we encounter in our relationships and the world. He needs to relate to others and can be quite sociable. He is married and has two children. 

He has Chiron, the wounded healer smack dab right on his Ascendant. He wears his wounds on his sleeve. One of his famous songs was called Loser. Chiron is opposite Uranus in Libra right on his Descendent.  Beck’s mission is to heal through his creative gifts. He is definitely a unique one of a kind person who never had an ordinary “normal” life. He is un- status quo in every way. And he likes it that way. 

His North Node is in Pisces in his 12th house. A very spiritual creative mystical placement. His spirituality is also hidden. Scientology. His South Node is in Virgo in the 6th house. He has been a very earthy, humble, intelligent organized, person in his past and he is meant to let go of facts details and figures and  and expand into the All. 

Beck also has some very interesting Feminine strengths and energies in his chart. Dwarf planet Ceres is conjunct Juno in his first house. He also has Lilith conjunct his Venus in Leo. He is attracted to strong independent females. He is not afraid to be a loner. He does things his way or its the highway. This makes him a bred in the bone non-conformist.


Beck is having the URANUS- SURPRISE! transit to his Sun with Pluto opposite his Cancer Sun- big power and corporate recognition. Neptune has also been transiting his North Node in 2014 when the album came out. He is creatively and spiritually at a peak now.

Saturn in Sagittarius is also Squaring his North Node. This is karmic reward time for his hard work and the maturation {Saturn} is his creative inspiration.

Saturn has also just crossed his Neptune in November 2014. His Neptune in his 8th house is rewards from other people. Saturn conjunct Neptune is physical, reality, rewards for working on your creativity and dreams. Saturn will backtrack in the summer and conjunct his Neptune again in the summer of 2015.

SHAKE IT OFF – Taylor Swift –

STAY WITH ME- Sam Smith 

Whitney Houston RIP; Tara Greene psychic and astrology updates, her death in the stars



The  beautiful and talented Whitney Houston’s death on Sat Feb 11 in Los Angles saddened so many people as she had been a very popular singer in the 80;s where she was Reigning Queen of Pop. I wanted to look at Whitney’s astrology chart to see what it had to say about her life and her death.


Whitney Houston, born Aug 9 1963 at 8:55 pm in Newark New Jersey,came from a famous family of singers, her mother Sissy Houston and her aunt Dionne Warwick


A LEO, Whitney was a natural performer, someone who can hold the spotlight and loves to be center stage. Leo is the sign of the actor, the drama queen, big-hearted, and also a childlike innocence. When Whitney was born she had the sign of Pisces on the ascendant, she projected as a Pisces, the sign of all creative peoples, all artists, sensitive, moody, unboundaried, spiritual people. Whitney was a gospel singer as a child. Pisces ascendants like Pisces,are also prone to addictions, drugs, alcohol, emotional addictions and these Whitney had plenty of over her life. She was ultra sensitive and an unrealistic romantic dreamer, someone who was in love with love. Pisces can be incredibly geniuses, the highest of the high and the lowest of the low.


Her Regal Leo Sun is conjunct Venus in the 6th house of work and service to to others. She was a real living Goddess,Venus conjunct the Sun in Leo is STAR POWER and gives incredible Queenly riches, charm, talent and Venus’s Goddess gifts of allure and charisma, as well as a huge heart. The down side of this can be megalomania, vanity, and desire for power.


Whitney’s Moon is in Aries at 17 degrees in the 1st house conjunct a Retrograde Jupiter.  Whitney could light up anything she wished,had tons of energy, could be arrogant, selfish, bossy. Jupiter conjunct the Moon exaggerates all of her feelings. Everything was big, over the top, a huge fount of feelings this was great in her singing. She had close ties to her mother and other women.


Jupiter Retrograde indicates that success would come and go. In Aries it shows a burn out factor, in Aries, like the famed Icarus she flew too high took too many risks. She definitely had the power to amaze people with her original talent. Jupiter and the Moon trine that Regal over the top Sun and Venus so Whitney was a star who would shine very very brightly and always be remembered highly.


Whitney had Mars in Libra, in the7th house of marriage; she would never leave a relationship even if it was bad. She had difficulty making u p her mind. She also has a powerful Pluto Mercury conjunction in Virgo on the Descendant giving her soul power to communicate with people directly from hers to them, and everyone felt it. She also had Saturn in Aquarius Retrograde opposite her Sun and Venus indicating difficult karmic past life issues with men, her father, authorities, work and underlying health issues, she wasn’t as strong as she appeared.


Saturn is in the 12th house of karma and self-undoing, Whitney definitely came into this life with many skeletons in the closet of her psyche. Saturn was called the devil in the old days. The Saturn opposite sun Venus also reminds me of selling your soul to the devil for fame beauty and fortune. Like the old Robert Johnson song “There’s a hellhound on my trail”, I believe this was a feeling tone which haunted Whitney’s nightmares all of her life.


Whitney also had Chiron {symbol looks like a key} close to her Ascendant,in the first house of self, opposite Mercury and Uranus. She embodied the wounded healer through her music, her unique talents and gifts. Her singing was a love balm,a spiritual gift.


Neptune the planet of spirituality, dreams, illusions, glamour and addictions is in Scorpio the most intensely soulful of all the signs. Neptune in Scorpio is the highest planet in the chart and carries great weight and is the apex of a T-square of Saturn Sun and Venus. Neptune is the crux, the cross she bore, shows her addictions to drugs, fame, bad relationships, low self –esteem {Saturn in the 12th} incredibly romantic.


Whitney was in love with love, her songs reflected this, very romantic, self sacrificing. Her songs The greatest love is about inner strength and this I see reflected in her chart as Neptune conjunct the infamous LILLITH. Her need to be herself, independent was her big struggle. She was bound up in a karmic struggle of male authority, which wounded and crushed her own autonomy the more helpless she felt the more she needed drugs.


Transits on Feb 11 2012-02-13


PLUTO still very important to western Tropical astrologers and is one of the main indicators of her death occurred now. Pluto Lord of Death at 8 degrees of Capricorn is exactly in square to her natal Mars, This is traditionally a very malefic combo. Pluto is also on the last degree of her house of fame and career status the 10th house indicating an ending to her fame.


The Sun itself, vitality had just crossed Saturn the day before. Which lights up all the natal aspects in the chart.Sun in the 12th house is endings, the last curtain call. Retrograde Mars in Virgo is approaching a square,a difficult aspect to her MC her career. But the other most important factor in Whitney’s death is Chiron the wounded healer,at 4 degrees of Pisces in the 12th house, of karma, ending, self-undoing, addictions, water. In an exact opposition to her natal Uranus at 4 degrees of Virgo on the cusp of the 7th   house this indicates Sudden unexpected, health issues as Virgo rules health, and Chiron makes one very vulnerable.  Neptune also figures in here at zero degrees of Pisces, meaning an unexpected wound through water, Pisces,as well as Solitude. Whitney died of a suspected drug overdose in the bathtub in a hotel alone.
