An Astrology perspective on Kanye West

What is up with Kanye? Is he having a mental breakdown? What do the stars have to say about this?  Kanye was hospitalized November 21 for “extreme exhaustion” following a string of onstage concert rants and then canceling his entire Life of Pablo tour. The rapper, husband of Kim Kardashian just spent more than a week at UCLA Medical Center before being released on Wednesday, November 30.  

Kanye West astrology of a genius? Tara Greene

First of all KANYE is a GEMINI, he has a split personality anyways. The black/white, arrogant/insecure man/boy will always be there to some degree. 

A psychologist, Dr. Rahel Kitson has done a psychological perspective on Kanye

“Dialectical Thinking:  Holding two opposing points of view, both of which can be valid and consist of some truth.  How does Kanye do this?  He simultaneously rejects and worships fame.  He is an ascetic materialist, striving to be relatable to the common man, but also claiming to be the Steve Jobs and Michael Jordan of music, on par with the son of god.” 

Kanye comes from a well to do educated, middle-class background.  He has no O.OB. planets. Kanye’s just a typical Gemini with expansive Jupiter conjunct his natal SUN opposite his very creative, delusional, spiritual Neptune SUN.  What’s Kanye’s Motto? “Just do it big.”  Sounds exactly like Donald Trump’s motto too, doesn’t it?

Let’s check out Kanye’s chart and current transits.

Kanye West astrology chart and transits November 21, 2016

The first thing that pops out is that Kanye is having SATURN transiting OPPOSITE his Natal GEMINI SUN, something that only happens once every 28-29 years. He is half way through Saturn conjunct his Sun in another 14-15 years. Saturn is conjunct his NATAL NEPTUNE in SAGITTARIUS which can bring depression to anyone’s dreams and creativity. Saturn,Lord of karma limits,  matures, tests and brings ill health and hardship to everything he touches. Kim Kardashian was recently robbed at gunpoint in Paris and tied up, she feared for her life. Kanye was on tour in the U.S. This must be a very harrowing experience for both of them now and probably encourages the sense of paranoia.

Plus SATURN is squaring Kanye’s creative and artistic PISCES MOON in his 9th house ruled by his natal Neptune in Sagittarius. Saturn restrictions limits, brings depression, maturity, tiredness and exhaustion. So it makes sense that Kanye would be feeling exhausted.

SATURN square a Natal Pisces Moon adds a  whole other element. Someone born with the Moon in PISCES, is a big psychic sponge, very very sensitive, creative, artistic and very spiritual. PISCES, like the sign of the two fishes, can display genius characteristics and also the opposite spectrum, of mental illness, paranoia, schizophrenia, delusions of grandeur, and of being God or seeing God. He calls himself Yeezus.  Kanye exhibits narcissism, grandiosity and whether it’s an act, Pisces moon peep sare great actors and chameleons, it is a self-fulfilling prophecy.

The Moon is always one’s mother and no closer relationship ever exists in the world. Kanye, an only child, was very close to his mother who passed away on November 10, 2007, suddenly from a heart attack. Kanye probably carries guilt around his mother’s death. Saturn would be bringing up melancholy.

URANUS the planet of chaos, lightning fast reflexes, freedom, higher consciousness and revolution is sitting on Kanye’s South Node in ARIES at 22 degrees. Uranus is opposite his North Node in Libra which is disrupting his relationships and friendships-he’s been ranting about his former friends Beyonce and Jayzee. His marriage may go through a very rocky period and may even end. His sense of balance is off. 

PLUTO is also getting ready to cross a very important angle in anyone’s astrology chart the 7th house cusp,the D.C. or descendant, and oppose the Ascendant, the persona or mask we all wear.Pluto will cross the 18th degree of Capricorn in March and then Retrograde back a couple of degrees then move forwards again to 18 in December of 2017. 

Pluto will cross the 18th degree of Capricorn in March and then Retrograde back a couple of degrees then move forwards again to 18 in December of 2017.  Kanye’s soul will be laid bare for the whole world to see in the next two years. Pluto’s energy can be felt as very destructive, causing “deaths’ of many different kinds and rebirths. Pluto is one’s own personal shadows and unresolved psychological contents. If Kanye can get proper psychological help then he may be able to navigate this once in a lifetime transit. Mental breakdowns can also be very healing if the patient can be vulnerable and work through their old issues. This takes time and patience.

Potentially if Kanye is truly following his soul’s urgings then he may come out of this even stronger, more humble, creative and more whole. 

KANYE’S NUMEROLOGY

Kanye’s birthdate numbers reduce to June 8 1977= 6+ 8+ 1977= 1991 = 20/11/2. 

Kanye and I share the same numerology so I am very familiar with this meaning. A #20 Personality goes through constant rebirths and make-overs of their personality. He is an old soul, he has a Master Number 11 as his inner guide. He has depth and strength. His root or soul number is #2 the High Priestess. This is a very strong, emotional, intuitive, psychic, sensitive, feminine, number. For a man to carry the High Priestess energy can be very difficult. the H.P. is like the Moon, moody, changeable, mysterious, reflective, He mirrors what’s going on around him. People don’t know who he really is, and he is very connected to his mother, energy cycles and women. He has to be able to integrate his own feminine side fully. Again the #2 is duality, also a Gemini issue.

Time and lucky karma will tell. Modern pharmaceuticals may be prescribed to help block Kanye’s issues so that he can cope in a more “normal” spectrum. But these drugs only block and cannot heal the actual psychological and karmic issues and therefore create more karma on a spiritual level. I do not recommend them unless someone is seriously psychotic. There are alternative therapies and shamanic techniques, spiritual disciplines, changes in lifestyle and  bodywork  which can all bring wholeness.

Kanye is quite a creative man. He is the father of two young children The rigors of being famous which he has sought also carries a very high price. 

What do you think of the man and his work?

August 1,Lammas Pagan Festival

August 1st, Lammas is one of the 8 stations of the Sun in the wiccan/pagan calendar year. This is the position of the South West on the sacred wheel of life.

The original wheat/corn man before being burned. The original Burning man.

It is traditionally a time of celebration of the harvest. John Barleycorn or a corn man figure symbolizing the sacred grain and most especially a sacred loaf was baked and offered to the four directions and the earth in gratitude. 

loaf, baking, sacred meals Tara Greene

Traditional Lammas Loaf, 

The Goddess CERES/ Demeter would be honored as the giver of abundant grains. 

Lughnasad is its other name. We are half way to the AUTUMN Equinox now. It is an Air element festival traditionally celebrated as the wake of the Sun KING, who is a star,  is dying now in the waning of his own Light. Cookie people figures and star cookies are baked in celebration.  It is time of anxious waiting, we are not yet assured of a harvest which will keep the people alive. It is a time to free oneself from FEAR.  A snake dance is created going counter clock wise, bread figures are thrown into the bonfire to symbolize the burning up of one’s fears. Then one says what one hopes to harvest. Symbols of STARS are held up. The High Priestess would say,

“MAY THE STAR OF HOPE BE WITHIN US ALWAYS.”

The coveners would eat the star cookies and celebrate. see link below for more details 

 The symbol for the sign of Aquarius in the 22 MAJOR TRUMPS of the TAROT is the STAR.

John Barleycorn Must Die Stevie Winwood/Traffic 

Love Occulted Dec 7

Like two parallel universes merging or intersecting.  There will be  a predawn occultation of Venus on December 7.
An occultation is an event that occurs when one object is hidden by another object that passes between it and the observer. Occultations of Venus  by the Moon happen every six months or so.

The  best places for watching the occultation of Venus by the Moon is at 6:43 a.m. Fairbanks Alaska or anywhere from Alaska, Yukon, British Columbia and the Northwest Territories. People from that part of the globe can watch as the moon occults– covers over – Venus for an hour or more before sunrise.

An Occultation is also known as a Parallel Conjunction, as “normal” astrological angles (such as conjunctions) are measured on Longitude only.  When two planets conjoin not just on Longitude but also on Latitude (also known as the Parallels), it’s considered a Parallel Conjunction, and its interpretation is given much more power.

Everyone is fascinated with the occult these days. Occult means hidden and implies mysterious, mystical, psychic, magical, secret energies and experiences. Sounds exciting…

Did you know that a solar or lunar eclipse is an occult occurrence? In astronomical terms, an eclipse of the sun is  an occultation of the Moon in front of the Sun. A transit is when one heavenly body passes in front of another, as viewed from Earth, we can see one move across the other in the background.

Venus will disappear behind the lit side of the waning crescent moon and then reappear on the unilluminated side of the crescent.

 The moon will already be in Scorpio. The astrology of the conjunction occurs at 9:25 am PDT.  Views from North America, Central America and the Caribbean will be especially spectacular, as the two bright beauties jostle for center stage. The occultation is visible from the continental U.S. but only in daylight. However, December 7 is also a great time to try to see Venus in the daytime, either with binoculars or your unaided eye.

What do occultations mean?

They are like super powerful eclipses. The Moon eclipses Venus  and the two feminine planets appear to merge. The Moon is the Mother in Astrology, unconditional love and nurturing. The Moon is the Unconscious, the High Priestess in the tarot, she is the realm of the psyche and the womb.  The Moon is cyclical time, menstruation, ovulation, the dreamtime, night-vision, owls, Goddess Diana, the sign of Cancer, Mermaids,  

Venus is love, the heart, self-love, world-love, romantic and sexual love, agape. 

The Moon is receptive, Venus is a seductress, active. From an occult point of view,the energies of this love occultation should bring you to clarity around the question of giving and receiving.  This yin/yang love energy has been floating around in my unconscious mind the last few days.

This is an eclipse of love by love.

This is a beautiful symbol of combining Feminine intuition with heart. The 6th and the 4th chakras. 

Use watermelon tourmalines if you have them to hold the energy of this love occultation.

I would advise you to focus on connecting with the energy of the Moon Venus occultation especially as it in Scorpio in Astrological calculations.

It is an auspicious time Let go and release any old ties that are binding your heart and keeping you in a false idea of separation. Healing sexual shame, abuse and  woundedness. Healing your heart chakra. 

Allow yourself to receive from the Moon, unconditional love from the planet Venus the ability to give love wholeheartedly. 

AFFIRMATION

“I open my heart and receive the unconditional love of the Divine Mother Goddess.”

I open my womb to the Light for it to be healed and made whole” 

Use copper to honor Venus. It is Monday,the Moon’s day and silver for the Moon.
