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?

Bringing sexy back,Mars Goes Direct, Astrology

It’s been a SLOW RIDE. I can barely keep my eyes open,how about you? Been soo tired it’s not funny. We all know why.

MARS the testosterone planet has been RETROGRADE since March 1st at 27 degrees + Libra

dragging us all snoozing and bleary eyed backwards through the relationship graveyard.

Yes many relationships have fizzled out from lack of drive, purpose, focus or sexual energy during this time.

Bringing sexy back Astrology tara Greene

BRINGING SEXY BACK Justin Timberlake from The LOVE GURU

If you were born October 26-27 28 with your SUN around those degrees, then MARS went RETRO right on your SUN.

HOW about it LIBRA’s? 

We’ve collectively been waiting to…come undone.

MARS GOES DIRECT MAY 19 @ 6:31 pm PDT at 9 degrees+ LIBRA! and you know what that means…collective orgasmic release….

Yes if you are born October 2-3-4 then YOU ARE BANG ON this year.

MARS has been in LIBRA since December 7  2013 focussing everyone’s desire on seeking PERFECT BALANCED EQUAL PARTNERSHIPS.

SCORPIO  and ARIES, both being ruled by MARS in traditional ASTROLOGY are definitely mainly focussed on finding their match while MARS is in the 7th SIGN, traditionally the house of marriage.

MARS going direct gives us all back our passion, desire, intention, energy to burn, anger, defensiveness, wars, sexuality, new beginnings, restlessness, impatience, FIRE POWER the big guns.

MARS will take until JULY 21 HOWEVER to overcome his backlash degree. 

We will be slowly but surely be dancing and parrying like a boxer till we get  to that mark in another 2 months.

so it’s a slow ride back to the future. BUT then its full STEAM HEAT ahead.

JULY 25  MARS ENTERS SCORPIO his home sign. MARK THAT DATE ON YOUR CALENDARS

SCORPIO’s SATURN turns DIRECT on JULY 20- so that week is pretty big

JULY 24 is one of the BEST DATES in the YEAR. FEATURING VENUS TRINE NEPTUNE & MERCURY TRINE SATURN 

MARS CONJUNCTS SATURN at 17 degrees SCORPIO AUGUST 25 on a NEW MOON!!!

thats right on my ASCENDANT- wow. THIS IS AN EXPLOSIVE DAY. WHERE DOES IT FALL IN YOUR CHART?

GETTING MARRIED? always consult with an ASTROLOGER for your best date. It’s one of the most important days in your life

It’ll be SCORPIO in HEAT time as the 8th signs are in their power playing the DARK, obsessive, 50 shades, soul psychology, ruthless, all black, sometimes fail for spite mode we all know and love/hate.

MOVE Forwards on all the things you have worked on behind the scenes, all the little hatchlings, after Mars goes direct.

YOU may feel a bit shaky at first, its been like being an invalid for the last 2.3/4 months.

People may be very aggressive late Monday night as they feel the OPEN valve.

ARIES MOON  on MAY 23 will feel more powerful, incendiary,

ARIES MOON opposes MARS And squares PLUTO on MAY 24

a very dynamic, aggressive energy,which also coincides with a

VERY POWERFUL AUSPICIOUS JUPITER SATURN TRINE at 18 degrees of CANCER /SCORPIO at 10:47 am PDT/ 1:47 pm EDT.

SATURN is right on my ASCENDANT {Retrograde} and I will be leading a ceremony at CHALICE LAKE in Bancroft Ontario at the famous Grail Springs Spa on this day.

with MARS now full speed ahead makes the energy really FLOW.

Its also the day of someone’s very superficially famous Wedding day. I’ll get to that in another article.

Animal rights, Sagittarius energy, daily card from tara Greene

THE MOON is in fiery Sagittarius, Jan 25 @ 10:13 pm – Jan 28 12:04 am EST

Brightening and firing the mood UP. Always optimistic, aiming higher, seeking the heights, always truthful, Sagittarius is casual, open, easy going energy. 

DON’t FENCE ME IN-

When we are under the Moon in Sagittarius we take on those characteristics so we can understand how our Centaur friends and lovers, ourselves if you have the Moon in Sagittarius at birth, as I do.  Sagittarius is the natural 9th house. If you were  born with the Moon in Sagittarius, as I was, this time is your monthly lunar return. Reset the dial.

SAgittarius Astrology Tara Greene

FLAMING HORSE Sagittarius Inspirational Card of the Day

Sagittarius, the half human half animal SIGN, the CENTAUR,  loves wide open spaces- they need SPACE in their close relationships.

Want to tame wild bucking bronco Sagittarius? Give them room to roam. Let them go on their own vision quest. They will always come back.

But try to fence them in, put them in a regimented routine- they will jump that fence and gallop off into the sunset.

Sagittarians are naive, and gullible. They trust automatically. They don’t get jealous or are possessive.

SOME FAMOUS MOON IN SAGITTARIUS PEEPS

OPRAH, JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE, AL PACINO, STEPHEN KING, CHARLIE SHEEN, ALBETR EINSTEIN, VINCENT VAN GOGH, AMADEUS MOZART, FREDDY MERCURY, DONALD TRUMP

You can always spot a Sagittarius female she is the one who is the most casually dressed. 

They can get down and disappointed that life didn’t meet their often too high expectations, but not for long.

But being fiery and spirited, they bounce right back.  

They can also be very judgmental.  Yes they can get up on their soap boxes and pontificate. They can be too one sided and must be careful not to be hypocrites. A quality which they loathe in others and can’t stand in themselves. They get easily inspired and find it hard to follow up on that inspiration and often promise more than they can deliver.

Sagittarians are mystically inclined and they do just know things intuitively.Nostradamus one of the most famous psychics who made hundreds of predictions based on visions he had, was a Sagittarius.

Sagittarius loves to learn, and they are always thirsting for new ideas. Higher education is a Sagittarius 9th house  passion. They make great teachers, philosophers, often judges, and lawyers.

The Sign Of SAGITTARIUS is where the Center of our Galaxy is, in Astronomical terms, Tropical and Sidereal Astrology.

They can be quite sporty, all fire signs can be competitive. The need physical exercise although you may have to drag them to the gym. Once their they re-discover how much they love to  move their bodies. 

 They like to laugh and make people laugh. 

Most of all their arrows aim higher to the spiritual truth of our galactic origins. They inspire.

ANIMAL RIGHTS are in the news- India has legally made DOLPHINS conscious non- humans. This is a break through.

But the slaughter of dolphins and whales by JAPAN continues. A horrendous one just gained world wide attention in the infamous killing cove in TAIJI where they also separated baby dolphin calves from their parents to sell for displays in zoo’s. PLease protest this maliscious cruelty.

Animals are our brothers and sisters. We are animals too. We must treat these precious species as essential to our survival.

They way we treat these animals now is basically the same way unconscious humans treat others, the earth’s resources, women, the poor. 

Use this Sagittarius Lunar time to focus HIGHER. The Energy is pretty easy on Sunday and Monday.

Meditate

Ponder on the fiery horse. Horse’s are intelligent sensitive creatures. Horses help heal human energy fields as they scan humans and they have such a huge psychic aura and are so grounded that they are used to help traumatic, autistic, emotionally off centered people. 

What is your inner wild horse on fire for? Where do they need to run free? Meditate on being a wild horse and let your spirit run free. Feel the freedom, power, energy. Hear your hoofs pounding on the ground. Exhilerating isn’t it?

Moon enters Capricorn 9:04 pm PST on Jan 27
