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?

Jimmy Fallon, The Tonight Show Astrology by Tara Greene

An historic new incarnation of the Tonight SHow begins Feb 17 2014 PST/Feb 18 at midnight EST as Jimmy Fallon takes over as the latest host of the long running late night TV show. 

Jimmy Fallon Astrology tara Greene

Interestingly the Tonight Show on NBC is turning 60 years old this year.

On September 27 1954 it began with Steve Allen as the host. Then Jack Paar, then the longest running JOHNNY CARSON for 30 seasons,then Jay Leno  1992- 2009,Conan O’ Brien’s short stint of 6 months then back to Jay who just retired Feb 6 2014 after 22 years.

Jimmy Fallon ushers in a new era as host of the  Tonight Show back in New York City from California since 1972. Jimmy is not the youngest host. But I think that fact that his name begins with a J seems to fit the host role best.  I find it really strange that Jimmy Fallon’s side man Steve Higgins looks exactly like the original host STEVE ALLEN as id he came backto be part of the show somehow.

Jimmy came to stardom via SNL from 1998-2004 where he co-hosted the news with Tina Fey. He started the Late Night show March 2, 2009 till a few weeks ago.

A charming, boyishly handsome triple threat,  Jimmy does comedy,sings and plays guitar and acts. Jimmy is up to the minute tech savvy, Twitter hashtag user, a musical parodist who laughs heartily at his own jokes. 

OK so lets see who JIMMY FALLON is from his Astrology chart.

Born September 19 1974 in Brooklyn New York.I have no accurate birth time so use NOON for a public celebrity.   

Jimmy Fallon Tonight Show Astrology Tara Greene

JIMMY is Surprise! a VIRGO.

A practical, hard-working perfectionist, analytical, sharp minded, loves to serve people, quite humble. Jimmy also has VENUS, how he wants to be loved, what he loves, also in VIRGO. Jimmy wants you to love him for his work and his smarts.

I would rectify his time of birth, as his Ascendant is much lighter, open, fun, versatile much more Gemini like, the boyish charm, love of communicating. He always wanted to be a Late night broadcaster.

Jimmy also has MARS CONJUNCT PLUTO in LIBRA. Wow now that’s one helluva combo. Mars and Pluto both rule Scorpio. Mars also rules Aries and he has no Aries planets in his birth chart. He does have Chiron the Wounded healer in Aries.

Jimmy has CHARISMA. Single-minded focus, passion, drive, he can totally manifest whatever it is he deeply desires and now he has, at 39 years of age, secured one of the top most prominent positions in all of American TV.

MARS conjunct Pluto in LIBRA give him an incredible charm that the Collective Unconscious can relate to. Libra is the most social of all the signs. Jimmy  has the charm in excess, it is in valuable, in exhaustible, that is why he appears so light. His  Libra soul, Pluto,  wants everyone to think they are NICE. He is a superlatively nice guy.

How does Jimmy think? He has Mercury, planet of communications, conjunct URANUS sign of new technology, thinking outside the box, wild and crazy, free thinking, inventive, pioneering. In LIBRA Jimmy is a breath of fresh air, opening up new windows in the mind. His approach is revolutionary and just what the TONIGHT SHOW needs. Jimmy plays games with his guests, does whacky musical political commentaries.

His MOON – his instincts, his emotions, his feelings are in SCORPIO. You can see it in his intense dark brown widely spaced eyes. There is a deep souled person in there.We see Jimmy’s powerful 4 planet in Libra combo but underneath he is shrewd, sharp, notices details, focussed on accomplishing his goals. He wants power and he charms us so much we are happy to give it to him. He is an intense person and very private about his personal life. Not too many people ever see his dark side. 

Jimmy has Saturn in Cancer very close to the United States Sun at 17 degrees. He is a sentimental, very close to his Mom and Dad, his family, his roots, He brought the Tonight Show back to his  home town, New York. He is an emotional, affectionate, old-fashioned kinda guy. He is married and with one new child,who I am sure he dotes on. He mothers and nurtures others. He is kind-hearted and probably has some issues with a sensitive stomach. His home is his security and he needs to be loved.

Jimmy has JUPITER RETROGRADE, his only Retrograde planet in Pisces. Jupiter is the Ancient Ruler of Pisces and as such is always a Guardian Angel for anyone lucky enough to be born with this  placement. Jupiter in Pisces blesses Jimmy with  great artistic vision and imagination. Jupiter rules humor, and Jupiter expands the types of humor and creative capabilities.   Jimmy is a natural optimist, compassionate, kind-hearted, honest, a dreamer. He is a natural chameleon and his comedic and musical talents for doing celebrity impersonations of Bob Dylan or Neil Young or Barry Gibb are legend. Everyone can relate to his humor and that is why he has been so successful. Jimmy is a natural philanthropist, so I am sure he already donates or will set up charities, schools, camps to help other youngsters get ahead. Neptune is the modern ruler of Pisces. He is a very spiritual person.

Jimmy has Jupiter Retrograde opposite Venus, which means he has come back in this life to finish off some karma with women, especially with his wife but all women he has worked with on SNL.

Jimmy has NEPTUNE in Sagittarius. The other sign Jupiter rules. So the two planets are in mutual reception. All planets in mutual reception makes them extra powerful, working and enhancing each other. In Jimmy’s case this is a super positive, super beneficial, extra bouncy, happy good-humored blessing for him. He IS the good Humor man. Neptune rules film, photography, by extension visual media.

Jimmy’s North Node is at 13 degrees of Sagittarius which is right on the United States Ascendant at 12 degrees Sagittarius. Well, America and Jimmy are on the same trajectory. The South Node not shown in this chart is at 13 degrees Gemini. A Gemini South Node indicates a past as a gatherer of information, a curious minded, wanderer, a Fool, or minstrel, a kind of Parsival type of figure. He makes his work seem totally fun and effortless that’s how much of a pro he is.

In this life, the Sagittarius North Node is about teaching, leading people to the truth, humor, expansion of knowledge, International inspiration. He makes us laugh about our culture, in an easy casual way. Laugh at our foibles, our history, our honesty/dishonesty. Above all he aims to inspire us. He is quick-witted, passionate, unwaveringly curious. Jimmy is a philosopher wondering why we are all here and inspiring us to laugh and see the higher picture. He is cleverly disguised as a comedian. The best medicine there is, is laughter.

DIVINE TIMING TRANSITS

The timing is perfect in Jimmy’s chart. I predict the Nielsen ratings will go through the roof. He will have a long productive run, as Jupiter is crossing his Natal Saturn. Chiron is conjunct to his Natal Jupiter opposite his natal Venus in Virgo, he has found his Holy Grail. He will also cure the ills of a nation whose Economic woes {Virgo} aren’t very funny right now. Jimmy will distract us from what really aches us. Jimmy’s Neptune is also getting very close to Square his Natal Neptune. This is a dream come true for him. He needs to be careful of his health, any alcohol or drugs, even Prescription meds now.  I believe Jimmy’s Moon must be later in Scorpio and that Saturn is crossing his Moon now. Saturn conjunct the Moon would indicate a huge responsibility, a maturity, a taking on of the mantle of power.  That would also give Jimmy a Gemini Ascendant as I mentioned.

OK Enough.

My Dad used to watch The Tonight Show when Steve Allen was the original host. So I have known about it all my life. When I was a kid, my dad always told jokes. I nicknamed him my funny Daddy and I adored him for that. My secret wish was always wished to be a comedian as I feel it is really the best career one could have.  I’ll be watching you tonight. You also have one of my fave rock groups U2 on as well. Love ya Jimmy. Wish I could be on you show one day and meet you.

Sending you and your family the best Blessings Jimmy.

Dec 13 PSYchic Weather Report – all times in PST

Emotions today are governed by the watery compassionate, delusional artistic blissed out, addicted type of a  Pisces Moon. Its’ extra over the top as Moon conjuncts Jupiter @ 12:16 pm PST.

At 4:35 pm PDT Moon bumps into Uranus so expected the unexpected! It’s just like sitting on a whoopee cushion which leading to an incredibly feeling of freedom emotionally. We dream of spiritual revolution!

During that very spiritual void-of course moon, which is very lucky as it makes the Emotional mood more internal, unconscious and stirring as ….

RX MERCURY CONJUNCTS MARS AND PLUTO!!! Triple Threat

Mercury Retrograde conjuncts Pluto in Capricorn at 4′ 41″ @ 8:05 -re-thinking new methods to trash, rehash, compost all corporate businesses.  What can we learn from the past? atomic bombs, wars, terrorism, scapegoating, secrets, government officials and messengers,

Rx Mercury also conjuncts Mars at same degree. Mars and Pluto both rule the sign of Scorpio the heaviest and soulfull-est sign of the Zodiac. Besides being known for sexy, Scorpio energy is laser like,hyper intense, fixed, controlling, all about power, secrets, atomic energy,birth, death, transformation.

Of course Mars and Pluto are conjunct themselves on this day! Their position in Capricorn is sextile to their natural rulership of Scorpio, their elements click. This is VERY HEAVY! Think PLutonium, hidden bombs, government collapses.

 It’s the perfect astrological symbol for WIKILEAKS.

If you’re born today! you are one helluv a fireball! You came into this realm to shake the world down.

If your a Capricorn born 24,25, 26, 27, 28 today is a big kick ass start me up, a veritable explosive energy  of rebirth, renewal, did I mention letting off some steam? although with Mercury Retro- we’re just in the rethink stage.  I foresee radical changes in world laws and corporate structures stemming from these planetary conjunctions.

 Who is really affected:

Aries born March 23,24,25,26, 27 you will certainly feel this as a square aspect, their too spontaneous natures are in danger of blowing up real good! Dangerous for the Rams today. Certainly be carefull around fires, electrical appliances, guns..

Cancer people born June 22,23, 24, 25, 26 feel the power as an oppositional force. Cancers need emotional security and this feels like they have guns to their heads with this aspect.

Libra People born Sept 25,26, 26, 27, 28,29 feel the square pushing energy. Feels like Make up your mind allready, or else!

If you are a Gemini ruled by planet Mercury, well your brains and mouths should certainly be boiling over today, watch what you say it will come back to you.

If you’re a Virgo also ruled by Mercury these aspects certainly make you re-think your workaholism, as your incredible need to be perfect will certainly backfire on you, maybe literally.

This day goes on record as one of the heaviest aspects days. Let me know how it feels to you.

And last but not least Moon enters Aries which is Mars’ territory at 11:15 pm. Dont expect to get much sleep tonight.

Moon will square- firing up into action the incidents which started smoking on the 13th.

Wed things calm down a bit??? the words Calm and Aries is an oxymoron.

The 16th if you’ve made it this far Moon goes void of course at 3:41 am

Don’t do any shoppping until the Moon enters Taurus at 10:49 am. The Sun squares Jupiter which should brighten the enegry up a lot. Moon trines Pluto + Mercury so some brilliant insights and clarifying of feelings, about who owns what. 

Friday Moon trines Mars. Should be a good day for the market.

Moon opposite Venus in Scorpio 7:49 am lasts all day. Very earth sensual day, good for getting a message, buying and/or eating chocolates, indulging in Victoria’s secret lingerie,dreaming about a very hunky person. Ask that person out now who you fancy.

let me know how the week’s planetary energies affect you.

Heads up for the Lunar Eclipse Dec 21 and Winter Solstice all ont he same day!

Very Auspicious, the eclipse and Winter solstice map the next quarter of the year.
