Gord Downie. Life and death Astrology

Gord Downie singer-songwriter leader of Canadian band The Tragically Hip has died October 17 at 53 of brain cancer. The band never made it big beyond the 49th parallel but The Hip has been the quintessential Canadian rock band for 30 years. Their last cross-Canada tour in 2016 after Downie announced that he had been diagnosed with a particularly deadly type of brain cancer ended with 11 million Canadians watching their final concert live.

Outpourings of sympathy for Downie’s family and four children came from Prime Minister Trudeau who was in tears as well as from indigenous leaders and fans.  The flag on the Peace Tower in Ottawa Canada’s Capital will be flown at half-mast until sunset on the day of the funeral or memorial service of the late Gord Downie. Canadian’s feel like they have lost a Canadian hero.

For his work in support of Indigenous people to reconciliation in Canada in 2016, he was given an honorary aboriginal name, Wicapi Omani, which is Lakota for  “man who walks among the stars.” Now Downie is. 

Let’s look at Downie’s astrology 

Gord Downie astrology by Tara Greene


Born Feb 6, 1964, in Kingston Ontario time unknown. The strongly AQUARIAN rebellious man was a unique “out of the box” individual and thinker who worked well with groups. He was a man who thought inclusively.

He had MARS and SATURN conjunct to his Sun. He was a seriously passionate individual with an electric wired energy. He saw the world from a higher perspective. Mars and Saturn are a difficult combination karmically. He was driven to be his own man but also respected traditions. 

I presume his MOON was in deeply intense soulful emotional cathartic Scorpio. He had immense charisma and willpower.

MERCURY in CAPRICORN Gord as a serious communicator and thinker. He respected history worked hard took his words seriously.

Gord was very much a poet and artist a spiritual man very loving and compassionate. He was charitable and sensitive to others’ pain.

JUPITER in ARIES at the 15th degree. Gord was an independent headstrong energetic fighter with lots of energy.

At the 15th degree. Gord was an independent headstrong energetic fighter with lots of energy. He liked to take risks and got bored easily.


The planet of artists and a spiritually powerful person who can have enormous effects on the world. Money power and influence came to Gord through his songs and deep insights into the human condition. His artistry was transforming and therapeutic. He cared about soul. Neptune squared his SUN MARS and SATURN. Saturn is the planet of tragedy. NEPTUNE makes a FINGER OF GOD to JUPITER in ARIES and URANUS PLUTO conjunction in VIRGO. Jupiter in Aries likes to be first with everything-Hip.


Spiritually his greatest growth was to be a father a family man and nurture others. He was very sensitive and emotional. SOUTH NODE in CAPRICORN- career was important and he already understood the structure of business. He was a serious man in many ways.

URANUS PLUTO conjunction opposite CHIRON in PISCES

This is a transpersonal aspect which millions of people share born during the same year. Gord came to heal people to help heal the world’s soul.

His death was expected.

PLUTO Planet of Death and Rebirth has been squaring Gordon’ Natal Jupiter since 2015. This is another blessing or a Good Death. Gordon had to face his mortality and he lived his life to the best of his ability.

Neptune is the planet of spirituality and artists. Gord made a creative celebration out of his life. He set up a foundation to help indigenous peoples. He has an album ready to which will be released posthumously in October.

Transitting CHIRON the WOUNDED HEALER conjunct to his VENUS in PISCES. This is a lovely spiritually peaceful rewarding death. 

Gordon Downie’s legacy will be listened to and remembered. Sending my condolences to his children and family. One of Downey’s sons Lou an aspiring actor attended school with my daughter at Rosedale Heights School of the Arts.

Trump and Trudeau, the two Mr. T’s, Astrology

Justin Trudeau, the ” I am a Feminist” Prime Minister since 2015 is a Liberal.  He meets The Donald today, Feb 13th for the first time in Washington D.C. scheduled for 2:00 pm EST.

Trump and Trudeau astrology Tara Greene

Most of us Canuck’s are pretty proud of our P.M. for having an equal balanced house of men and women. Trudeau welcomes Syrian refugees and said he would take all of those Trump turned away immediately when Trump’s ban went into place.

Trudeau is young, 45, handsome, the son of a former Prime Minster who governed for three terms and was brought up in wealth and privilege. Trudeau has always backed big oil, as Canada’s established economy depends on the dirty Alberta Tar Sands and other natural resources.

Canada and the U.S. have the largest border in the world. Canada is currently their 2nd largest trading partner after China, with $575 billion in total (two-way) goods trade during 2015. Goods exports totaled $280 billion; goods imports totaled $295 billion. The U.S. goods trade deficit with Canada was $15 billion in 2015. There are only 36,286,378 Canadians as of 2016 compared to the U.S. which has 322,762,018 people. We have the 2nd largest land mass in the world and 1/9th the population.  The U.S. violent crime murder rate is 23 times higher than Canada’s. The U.S  rape rate/ violent crime is 147 times higher than Canada’s!  see more stats below”

Here is what Trump and Trudeau’s birth charts together look like. I’ll decipher this so that you can see how they will get along. 

Interestingly the two T’s charts almost align perfectly. Trump’s Ascendant is in late Leo and Trudeau’s is in early Virgo. 

Donald TRUMP is a GEMINI, a dual-natured and very unique individual, with URANUS, the sign of rebellion, inventiveness and pioneering, and his NORTH NODE in GEMINI conjunct to his Sun. Trump has the majority of his planets in Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Libra and Sagittarius. 

Trudeau is an earthy Capricorn, with lots of fire and air elements in his chart. Venus and his North Node are in the sign of freedom, Aquarius, he has to champion Feminism. LOL. Trudeau has his MOON in spontaneous ARIES, with Chiron. Pluto and Uranus in airy LIBRA, Neptune, Mercury and Jupiter in “tell it like it is”, SAGITTARIUS. Trudeau has his MARS at the very last degree of the Zodiac PISCES! The most compassionate degree there is. Of course, he will always take in refugees and root for the underdog. See my analysis of Trudeau’s natal chart here:  https://infinitynow.wordpress.com/2015/10/12/justin-trudeau-canada-election-astrology/

When we see the two charts combined, Trump is on the Inner wheel in Blue and Trudeau on the outer wheel in Red.

Donald Trump, Justin Trudeau astrology chart Tara Greene


















Trump’s NEPTUNE in LIBRA, in his 2nd house of money and resources, and Trump’s MERCURY in CANCER, form a T-square with Trudeau’s SUN in CAPRICORN. This means difficulty negotiating what’s best for Trump’s home- the U.S. with oil. Neptune governs oil, debt, delusion and secrets. That doesn’t look good.

They are largely opposites, but they have a very strong PAST LIFE CONNECTION. Trump’s SUN- URANUS -N.N. Gemini SUN opposes Justin’s JUPITER in SAGITTARIUS, the sign of politics, International relations, truth, justice, and honesty. Jupiter is the planet of expansion, optimism, humor, and it governs Sagittarius. Justin’s Jupiter is really strong and is exactly conjunct to Trump’s Moon, which symbolizes his moods, his unconscious, emotional side, and Trump’s South Node. This is a really strong Past Life karmic indicator. This can indicate that Trump was either Justin’s mother in a past life, or that Justin was his teacher and educated him. Justin can teach Trump a thing or two about fairness and justice and respecting women now that’s for sure. They are opposites but could be incredibly strongly tied. Will Trump hug Trudeau? They may both even start to cry when they touch. The Moon governs sentimentality. There could be a strong passive-aggressive, chaotic energy between the two of them. They may be totally repulsed by each other. Trudeau needs to humor Trump, to say the least. 

Trudeau’s Moon in Aries, which trines the Moon-Jupiter, South Node conjunction and opposes Trumps, Jupiter-Chiron conjunction in LIBRA where Trump is the most vulnerable in that he cannot negotiate. Where Trump is most vulnerable conjuncts Trudeau’s URANUS, Juno and Lilith where he is an innovator in respecting women and all rejected peoples. 

This is a two-way Jupiter- Sun- Moon-Uranus configuration. Connected but repelling. These oppositions also have nice aspects from Fire and Air trines. That spells CHAOS, but potentially creative and inventive at the highest level. 

Trudeau practices Yoga, his lovely wife Sophie, is a yoga instructor, he was an actor, and he is an extremely compassionate Spiritual Warrior because of MARS at the 29th degree of PISCES.  This is Trudeau’s passive- aggressive tool which he can use, as it trines Trump’s VENUS-SATURN’s “tough love”  conjunction in late degrees of CANCER. Trump loves his family, and if they can confer about the whole world being family as Trudeau sees it, they may be able to broker a deal. 

Interesting the two men both have JUNO, the symbol of FEMININE GENIUS conjunct in LIBRA. Yes, there are Juno Awards in Canada, and a famous Film too. They could put their heads together and if they listen to their feminine intuition logically they could work out many new deals and be very ambassadorial with each other. New NAFTA deal which is a WIN-WIN situation? 


Most importantly Trudeau’s SATURN at Zero degrees GEMINI Retrograde sits on his own M.C. and TRUMP’s M.C. the highest place of worldly power in any chart. Trump’s is in sensual, stubborn TAURUS.  This indicates that Trudeau is the more mature, wiser, communicator and negotiator. They both have their MC’s conjunct to the Fixed Star with the worst reputation ALGOL or Medusa. Trudeau will have to fix TRUMP with “that stare” that can turn men to stone, so it says in the myths in order to handle him.

Trudeau’s has a natal Saturn in GEMINI, Neptune in SAGITTARIUS opposition, this is where he may also flip-flop. Trudeau can promise one thing because he is acting from two polarities, just like Trump does. Then Neptune, the Idealist steps up. This is a drive with the breaks on issue. Trump’s LILITH, where he fears, despises and wants to control and suppress women is tightly involved in this. This is where they will disagree the most. They are supposed to be talking about women on the 13th too. 

Trudeau’s CHIRON in ARIES, where he is the most wounded and vulnerable is in his Natal 8th house of “other people’s money, taxes and transformation.” This is opposite to Trump’s NEPTUNE in LIBRA, in both their 2nd houses of resources, very fittingly. NEPTUNE rules OIL, delusion, illusion, debt, and relationships and also conjuncts to TRUDEAU’S Natal PLUTO. This is a fight between who has the most power of course. 


There is a hypothetical body called Transpluto-ISIS. Interestingly enough, Trudeau’s South Node, his karmic past life is in LEO, sign of KINGS, exactly conjunct to Trump’s symbol of ISIS conjunct his PLUTO, opposite Justin’s VENUS-NORTH NODE conjunction in AQUARIUS. Trudeau will be open minded about refugees, ISIS, and unity for all. On that they will disagree totally. TRUMP wants to annihilate ISIS because it is his own PLUTO shadow, his own unconsciousness, which want to have total control and power. Not that ISIS isn’t dangerous or destructive. 

Trump is a very dangerous person with both Mars and PLUTO, both rulers of SCORPIO, sign of control, power, secrets, nuclear energy, anger, criminality, delusion, addictions, self-sabotage, religion, confinement, institutions, glamor in his natal 12th house of spirituality. 

That’s a lot going on there. Canada depends on the U.S for trade, many border states do as well. NAFTA could be rewritten to better benefit both countries. Canada can  not defend itself against its more powerful neighbor. Trudeau has to play this very shrewdly. Canadians want him to stand up to Trudeau. 

Interestingly for Trudeau, the North Node which symbolizes the collective mode of the times is exactly on Trudeau’s Ascendant at 3 degrees of VIRGO. This means the liberal, caring, humble, health care providing society of Canada, the Karma we reap as the results of our actions is what the world needs now, plus LOVE.

I am hoping that Trudeau can sway Trump. MaybeTrump needs to learn to meditate. do yoga and chant OM. I hope this is a WIN-WIN for both countries.

Mercury conjunct Pluto, power is the message.

MERCURY and PLUTO join today @ 17+ degrees CAPRICORN sign of worldly power. 






The message is power. The Message is the PLUTOCRACY. The message is that sinister forces are at work on the world’s stage. 

The deep dark SHADOWS of the unconscious are speaking out. It is important to remember that what has been repressed and hidden is coming out in the light of day so we can see it name it and transform it. In that sense Trump is working to clarify our “hearts of darkness.”

The archetypes of Trump Cards  #1 The Magician and #13 DEATH unite today through the planets, Mercury and Pluto in the sign of Capricorn, The DEVIL.  We can clearly see these archetypes playing out.

The Magician Tarot Astrology Tara GreeneDeath, Tarot card reading Tara Greene   the Devil Tarot Tara Greene




In this 2017= The Magician year, your thoughts and what you say carry greater power. Pluto rules secrets, invisibility, control, money, repression, garbage. Be very conscious of every thought you think. This is beyond the Law of Attraction. Your words have tremendous power. Your power is also in how you to choose to respond.

This is yet another aspect of the Cardinal Crosses from 2012-2015. You thought it was over, right? Mercury is “THE WORD,” what is being communicated. He is traditionally a trickster God. Pluto is the Lord of Death and Rebirth, power, control, secrets, money, ruthlessness, garbage and recycling. 

Mercury is “THE WORD.”  He is traditionally a trickster God. Pluto is the Lord of Death and Rebirth, power, control, secrets, money, ruthlessness, garbage and recycling. 

Fake News, real news. Presidential edits, Federal judges blocking them. This is a communications breakdown battle. Who has control?  With that alt-right Neo-Nazi Steve Bannon to the council in a reorganization of the NSC. He also said his chief-of-staff Reince Priebus would have a seat in the meetings. Trump had fired CIA officials. Dangerous.

Trump has banned Muslims from 7 countries entering the U.S. for 90 days which immediately resulted in thousands protesting at airports across the U.S. and Twitter lit up with #NoMuslimBan.

US District Judge Ann Donnelly’s ruling late on Saturday concerns dozens of people who were detained at US airports following Trump’s actions. People with green cards were detained, their cell phones removed and they were asked how they felt about Trump. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), had filed a class action lawsuit against the ban, hailed the temporary stay of execution as a victory.

Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau elegantly Tweeted:

“To those fleeing persecution, terror & war, Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith. Diversity is our strength .”

Many other countries are speaking out against this insanity. Trump has not banned the biggest offending Muslim country which is SAUDI ARABIA which is responsible for being involved in 9/11. The Saudi’s have the most repressive of all Muslim countries, for women.

You have an 11,000+ % chance of being shot by some American with a gun than by a Muslim Terrorist

Mars in ARIES will see conflicts and tempers rising daily. The Revolution has begun. Trump is a renegade anti-NWO person which is the only good thing i can see. I feel he is being used by higher powers to instigate what could become martial law in the U.S. A Civil War is in the offing. 

Impeach Trump movements are being launched after only 1 week.

Aquarius Moon sextiles Saturn in Sagittarius, JUSTICE and freedom triumph for now

JUSTICE and freedom triumph for now

Moon enters PISCES @ 8:10 pm PST/ 11:10 am EST/4:10 pm GMT

It’s a good time to be compassionate, to feel the connection we all have with one another beyond the man-made religions that we have created from a misguided illusion to separate ourselves from what is truly “God.” and each other. The only thing that is real is LOVE and compassion. Jesus preached that, and Buddha preached Loving kindness. Anything else but that is not a real spiritual religious anything but all ego and totally false. I wish there was a spiritual lie detector machine that you could put the words of any Bible, Koran, Torah, or book under and it would spiritually state if it were true or not.  That’s a Saturn in Sagittarius wish for you.

MERCURY is that silvery, very toxic metal which cannot be contained but slithers into little balls and replicates. It is one of the main ingredients used in Alchemy, turning lead into Gold. Mercury was known as the God of thieves, shopkeepers and merchants, travelers and transporters of goods,  and tricksters. He is commonly identified with the Greek HERMES, the fleet-footed messenger of the Gods. The words for Mercantile and merchant stem from Mercury’s name. 

As Hermes in the Greek Tradition, his father was ZEUS the king of the Gods and his mother a PLEIADIAN  Maia. That is very interesting as the Pleiades are considered to be the Star seeders of most indigenous people’s. The earliest center of his cult was probably Arcadia, where he was reputed to be born at Mt. Cyllene  He was especially worshiped there as the god of fertility, and his images were of erect penises. 

Hermes wears a broad-rimmed traveler’s hat, and winged sandals made “of imperishable gold which bore him swift as a breath of air over sea and earth.  He carries a caduceus on which snakes and ribbons are entwined. This caduceus is mixed up with Asclepius’s which has double snakes and which signifies healing and is the same one modern Doctor’s use to signify their craft. He carries a money bag as he signifies good luck and riches. 

Hermes’ holy-bird was the cock or rooster,  a messenger bird, and we have just entered the year of the FIRE ROOSTER in Chinese tradition.  The ram, Aries symbol is also considered one of Hermes’ favored pets. Wow this is totally synchronous as Mars has just entered Aries yesterday along with the crowing Fire Cock year.

To the Germans, he was called Woden. To the Egyptians, he was known as Thoth. The origin of the deity Hermes Trismegistus, or “Thrice-great Hermes.”  The three-part title comes from this version of Hermes being the Greek writer of astrological texts, responsible for occult arts including alchemy, the Egyptian god who invented hieroglyphics and calendar-keeping, and also a judge of the souls of the deceased.

Hermes taught the Thriae, who were winged female spirits who live on Mount Parnassus, the art of prophesy. He was very helpful to a number of Gods and Goddesses in many different situations.

Mercury will square URANUS on the 31 and JUPITER on the 2nd. 

Mercury and PLUTO are sextiled by CHIRON in PISCES

Stay clear minded. The planets are shaking us up really hard now. Chiron in Pisces is bringing compassion to the fore.

We need to keep examining our own unconscious feelings and drives. If we each understand that a separating aspect in our own unconscious is what is driving this we can help heal this split. It is the original split of matter and the Holy. It is all still an illusion but is also real. We will find our way to Oneness or destroy each other in this process. 

This is all a big drama. Divide and conquer has always been the way. The drama will intensify as the North Node enters LEO on May 9th this year. The next 2.5 years will be filled with power plays and drama every day. Leo North Node helps us to speak from our hearts, to be loyal, and to protect the children and those we love. It is the sign of Kings and Queens, actors and roles and lion-hearted courage and pride. We will be drawing on strong leadership and creative self-expression. It is the flaming passion of the Love and the HEART chakra which is our highest goal to live from.

Stay centered my friends. I am sending you Blessings

Back to the Future, Deja Vu day

I have to say that I am immensely proud that the Justin Trudeau is now our new 23rd Prime Minister of Canada. Our country is now painted red the Liberals colours. Yes Canadians spell British style. 

Canada's handsome Prime Minister Justin Trudeau

Now do you want to live in Canada?

The Prime Minister designate started off by telling President Obama today in his first media release that A. he will be pulling Canada out of bombing Syria.

B.  he will be meeting asap with the Premiers to discuss the message to the World Climate Summit re/ reducing greenhouse gases

C. he will accept 20,000+ Syrian refugees in short order.

Not a bad start. 

Look out world, our tattooed, big-hearted,boxing for charity, pro-marijuana smoking leader is out to pack a punch.

October 21 2015 is BACK TO THE FUTURE DAY

 Oct. 21, 2015  is the day that the characters Marty McFly, Emmett “Doc” Brown and Jennifer Parker famously journeyed from 1985 to 2015 in the sci-fi film trilogy’s second installment in 1989.

“Back to The Future Part II” envisioned a colorful 2015 with flying cars, hoverboards and self-tying shoelaces. While those doodads are hardly prevalent today, the film did accurately tease the rise of such technology as flatscreen televisions, biometric scanning and hands-free gaming. It also predicted the Chicago Cubs winning the World Series — an actual possibility with the Cubs contenders in the real-world playoffs, although maybe not for long.

“Back to the Future” Day is being celebrated Wednesday with an appearance by the original cast at a Lincoln Center screening in New York, as well as several fan-centric events and more than 1,700 theaters hosting screenings across the country.

“Back to the Future” filmmaker Robert Zemeckis’ trilogy has left a lasting impression on pop culture in the 30 years since the original film debuted, spawning a theme park attraction, video game and animated series.

Beginning on Wednesday, the town of Reston, Virginia, is ceremoniously changing its name to Hill Valley, McFly’s fictional hometown. 

DEJA VU day today. I have often thought that time moves backwards. 

DO YOU EXPERIENCE DEJA VU? what does it mean to you?

Aquarian energies are qunincunxy later today from Moon to Venus and  Jupiter in Virgo. 

Earth wants practical results, Aquarius is innovating and idea minded. 

Oct. 22 MERCURY IN LIBRA Squares PLUTO in Capricorn 

This aspect throws us back to the past and packs a communications wallop. Power struggles, trying to maintain the status quo is challenging. REVISITING the Grand Cardinal cross energy again of early 2015 @ 13+ degrees. What has changed since then?

The detached rebellious Aquarian mood continues until late Thursday. 

Aquarius moon in quincunx to Mars in the nigh time

This may produce high energy, angry battles in your dreams and restless,dreams of escaping, running to freedom or away from a trap. Be aware of great ideas and flashes of brilliance and breakthrough solutions. 

Friday is juicy  with VENUS TRINE PLUTO MARS OPPOSITE CHIRON and SCORPIO TIME starting. I will write about that soon.
