Remembering David Bowie again

David Bowie, legendary Starman, Astrology

David Bowie  by Green Feline on Tumbler

Remembering and missing Capricorn David Bowie who passed away two years ago today. I examined his natal chart and even though David knew he had cancer he fought it until the end. I also show the planets at his death. He is survived by his widow beautiful Iman and their daughter Alexandria {Lexi} Zahra Jones 17 and his son Filmmaker Duncan Jones 46 and a grandson Stenton David Jones born 6 months to the day after he died. 

It’s fascinating to me that on the stellar SUN VENUS PLUTO conjunction on Jan 9 yesterday is perfectly aligned with Bowie’s Natal Sun-Mars conjunction in Capricorn. Perhaps he is being reborn on this day. His legacy shines on and is more appreciated than ever.The Indigenous people say it takes usually around 3 years of earth time for someone to reincarnate. A much longer period than the 49 days of earth time that the Tibetan Buddhists state.

So shocked and sad to hear of legendary musician David Bowie passing away January 10, two days after his 69th birthday. His 27th album, Black Star was also released that day to great critical acclaim and immediately went to the top of the charts. Bowie had been secretly battling cancer for the last 18 months. The album bravely explores death and dying through songs like “Lazarus.”  The video shows Bowie on a hospital bed, with bandaged eyes, writhing around and singing ” Look up here, I’m in heaven. ” Jesus brought Lazarus back to life in the Bible, telling his followers that “This sickness will not end in death.” This album is Bowie’s swan song, a gift to his fans and the people of earth. This makes listening to it now more poignant because of his loss.

Some people think that David Bowie was the greatest rock star ever. David appeared as the most glammed up of stars, Ziggy Stardust, the thin white Duke, or Berlinesque balladeer, the androgynous space man and actor, in a career that spanned 46 years.

Bowie, Star Man, the man who fell to earth…

David Bowie, born David Jones, was recognized as a unique, innovative, multi-talented musician, actor, producer and innovator.   His androgynous appearance and his proclaimed bi-sexuality, opened up acceptance for gays and bisexuality. The androgyne is an alchemical symbol of wholeness.  Bowie was married twice and leaves behind a son Duncan {Zowie} born in 1971 who has become an award winning film maker, directing Moon in 2009.  Bowie also leaves his widow Somalian born super model Iman and their daughter Alexandria born in 2000.

David inspired millions of fans since his early Ziggy Stardust days.  Space Oddity was his first hit in July 1969. The song was  recently covered by Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield in May 2013 broadcast from the International Space Station, the first recording from space, reviving interest in Bowie to a new generation.  A recent International Museum show of his artistry and fashion has toured recently to great acclaim. A recent theatre production in New York which he co-wrote  just opened three weeks ago. David Bowie will be sorely missed and his music always remembered. He is a Star Man. 

DAVID BOWIE’S BIRTH CHARTDavid Bowie,legend, Astrology Tara GreeneShows the Space Oddity, Rebel, Rebel qualities 

David Bowie born January 8, 1947 in Brixton U.K. is an earthy Capricorn, who always felt like an alien, an outsider.With his Sun and Mars conjunct in the 12th house of the unconscious, he definitely was connected to a very different reality. The 12th house is the home of everything mysterious, deceptive, dreamy, imaginative, spiritual, karmic, craziness and genius and where all artists source their inspiration. The 12th, is the house of the unconscious, depth psychology, projections and addictions. The 12th house is Neptunian, formless, shape-shifting, deeply emotional and shamanic. The 12th house is also the house of insanity. Bowie wrote a song called ” Aladin Sane” and was hounded by his own demons throughout his life. 

David Bowie’s birth chart also features a number of very interesting placements. His Mercury is OUT OF BOUNDS at 24 degrees 23 minutes South Declination. This means that David’s means of communicating is, well, just like the tag sounds, unbounded, beyond the constraints of normality. Out of Bounds planets are rather rare. David’s Moon and Mars are both at 23 degrees 18 minutes of declination, 10 minutes away from an exact cusp of being O.O.B. These aspects create another sense of alienation and rebellion in David’s emotional and masculine drive.  O.O.B. make people with these placements agents of change and challenge for the collective who are hemmed into the status quo.

LIFE ON MARS?

One of David first backup bands when he performed as  Ziggy Stardust, was called the Spiders From Mars.  David had the planet MARS conjunct his SUN. These two planets drove him towards worldly fame. David was a very hard-working man, and astute businessman who protected the copyright of his music and invested wisely and was worth billions. His Sun and Mars, ruled by Saturn give him longevity, staying power and like fine whiskey, ge tbetter with age.

His eclectic AQUARIUS Ascendant, is the mask of the alienated, higher-consciousness, freedom loving rebel. “Rebel. Rebel” was one of his hit songs. His persona was always innovative, pioneering, pushing the envelope. Aquarius’s symbol is lightning and the most famous icon of the 70s was David’s face from his album Aladin Sane with the lightning bolt on it.

 

Uranus the ruler of Aquarius is in his 4th house of his roots,the foundation. In GEMINI, the sign of the twins, communications, and conjunct to his North Node.The planet and North Nodal karmic energies are combined.GEMINI North Node is always about communicating, marketing, duality, questioning, remaining intellectually curious.  

Bowie was destined to be the Star Man. Uranus trines his Natal Neptune in Libra in the 8th house of sexuality and transformation. This gave him unusual artistry. Neptune is the higher octave of Libra and this made it easy for David to bring his always evolving creativity into his music and  fashion.

URANUS also forms a finger of God or a Yod aspect in his chart.

A finger of God is exactly what it sounds like. It is formed by JUPITER in SCORPIO to the Sun and MARS in CAPRICORN in the 12th. Jupiter in Scorpio is extremely sexual, charismatic, powerful, phoenix-like and controlling. David always played the tart. His music was always very erotically driven. David had a very fated Uranian mission to bring the starman who fell to earth into our consciousness to change the world.

Sun/Mars in Capricorn sextile Jupiter in Scorpio describes exactly. “The Man Who Sold the World.”

HIs SOUTH NODE is in Sagittarius at 11 degrees in his 10th House of Fame and worldly success.

11 degrees Sagittarius is conjunct to the GREAT ATTRACTOR. A massive gravity anomaly in intergalactic space whose mass is so large it sucks everything into it. According to Philip  Sedgewick people with this point prominent have lives that impact the world in ways  far beyond their perception. The G.A. aspect brings “around the bend” vision, a  precognition of events. Bowie’s genius was to be ahead of his time.  Bowie also had the Asteroid Juno conjunct his South Node. I believe that Juno is the feminine form of genius. His Venus is in Sagittarius right on his M.C.his world FAME spot. He wrote a song called Fame too. Venus rules artists. In Sagittarius Bowie loved being a gypsy, a metaphysician, an inspirer, a philosopher and world traveler. Venus in Sagittarius also points to his soul mate Iman, a beautiful exotic woman of different racial background. 

MOON conjunct SATURN Retrograde with PLUTO in Leo in his 7th house of relationships.

This is a very heavy weight combo. Saturn rules his Capricorn Sun. In  Leo with the Moon conjunct Pluto is a heavy, dramatic, hugely emotional, powerful, obsessive creative, self-expressive route to fame. David played to the dark side often. I am sure he had huge emotional ups and downs.

AT HIS DEATH

David died from liver cancer, diagnosed 18 months ago. He had been afflicted by the Cardinal Cross energies from Pluto the planet of death which has been conjunct to David’s Mars and Sun in his 12th house of secrets since 2014. Uranus has also been squaring David’s Sun and Mars during this time too. The liver is governed by planet Jupiter expands whatever it touches. Jupiter was in Leo in July of 2014  affecting his Moon, Saturn and Pluto, all very karmic, around the time his cancer was diagnosed.

Chiron the Wounded Healer in Pisces was transiting his first house and had been squaring David’s natal Uranus. David used his illness as fuel to launch into a completely new type of musical genre, jazz fusion for this last album, becoming the wounded healer. 

Saturn had just crossed David’s Venus and Mid-Heaven {MC} in January of 2015. He has been working on this album and the New York theatre production “Lazarus” which he co-wrote, had just opened December 7, 2015.

Planet MARS, a huge topic for Bowie was crossing over his Natal Chiron in SCORPIO in the 8th house of death and transformation bringing him some peace. 

The VENUS/SATURN conjunction exact on December 8th, on David’s birthday was exactly on his South Node in Sagittarius opposite his North Node. Saturn is often referred to as a Black Star. The title of the last album. To me this is a beautiful cosmic escort of the planet of love with the planet of death in Sagittarius. An inspirational way to leave the body. Saturn is the end of the cycle and David had reached it. This combination brings lasting accolades.

Neptune in Pisces has been squaring his North and SOUTH nodes. Another beautiful sense of a spiritual death, completion, going back to the being stardust once again. 

On the New Moon on January 9th, a new beginning, the Sun and Moon together, symbolizing the void, and androgyny crossed over David’s Sun.  

” We’re choosing the path

Between the stars

I’ll leave my love

Between the stars.”

“As the world falls down” from Labyrinth.

I’ve been feeling quite weepy all day. This has taken me a long time to write. When great artists leave the planet the collective feels the hole. I feel David went in peace and he can still feel all the love all of his family and fans have for him. We also need to let David go and appreciate the gifts of his music. He will be a spirit guide for many who tune into him. 

Canadian film critic Richard Crouse stated it beautifully: “We should all be as lucky as David Bowie to have the kind of restless creative spirit it takes to live a life filled with ever-shifting boundaries, exploration and challenges. A life lived like an extended art project was his gift to us.”

Malala Yousafzai, karmic horoscope from Tara Greene

With her book out “I am Malala” and her recent Noble Peace Prize nomination. I wondered what sixteen  year old Pakistani Malala Yousafzai’s natal Horoscope was like.  Malala has had a very extreme life so far. Since 2009 Malala had written a blog for the BBC about life under the Taliban. Because she has been an outspoken advocate for girl’s education, which the Taliban had forbidden, she was hunted down and shot in the head on October 9 2012 returning from school. After being shot in the left eye and her shoulder, she was rushed to emergency surgery and flown to England where she has made an amazing recovery. She is a miracle.

Malala Time Astrology Tara Greene

Please note that transiting JUPITER which rules publishing, luck, expansion, traveling, good karma is now exactly on her NATAL Sun as her book  is published. She is having one of her best years.

Malala has become a moderate Muslim Feminist heroine in the West, she has met President Obama, spoke at the U.N.  and left Jon Stewart speechless on the Daily Show  where she spoke passionately  about every female’s right to an education. She understands that this  leads to women’s empowerment which is what the Taliban fear.  Yet she is criticized in her native country and by political writers because they see her being used as a PR tool which avoids looking at the entire political situation. Many Pakistani’s feel that in spite of her fame not much has changed even though her presence helped ratify PAKISTAN’s first Right To Education Bill.  

Malala was born JULY 12 1997 birth time unknown, in Mingora, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province Pakistan.

Malala Yousafzai Astrology Tara GreeneMALALA birth chart and transits October 9 2012 when she was shot

MALALA was quoted on the Jon Stewart DAILY SHOW October 10 2013 “Women are more powerful than men.”

She is  a Cancer Sun with the Moon at 13 degrees Libra in square. She is  a traditionaL caring, emotional woman, a nurturer. Her home and family,  the Sun and Moon are very important to her. Moon in Libra- she is poised, emotionally detached, she is a natural  ambassador and wordy peacemaker.

Malala’s karma about who she is, is write large all over her chart. She has asteroid JUNO conjunct her Sun. I feel Juno describes FEMININE genius.

Her birth chart shows what is traditionally described in  Vedic-Indian astrology and Western Astrology as  “malefic aspects.” VERY DIFFICULT.

Malala has Mars- war- defenses, conjunct the Moon. Literally- aggression towards the Feminine, the Moon.- Agression/defensive/warriors connected to her emotions, her soul, her unconscious, her FEMININE self.  She will strive to  achieve Libran balance. 

Mars and Moon are opposite SATURN in Aries at 20 degrees= this is THE MOST DIFFICULT ASPECT to have. EXtremely karmic-Violence,  between the masculine and the Feminine. Saturn in Aries- is violence, sudden aggression, weapons of war,opposite her Moon, because she is FEMALE. SAturn is  karma. Malala takes it in her HEAD which Aries rules.

Aries is always ruled by Mars which is weakened in Libra, they are in a mutual reception, which helps her. It could have been worse.

And MARS opposing SATURN both square Malala’s SUN in CAncer.

This is her karmic Signature. To take the hit. Her raison d’être the Cancer Sun ,the most traditionally Feminine of all the Signs, she is a symbol for all girls-  Saturn in Aries- I walk my own way. Don’t tell me what to do.

She also has Asteroid VESTA conjunct her SATURN. Vesta is incredible focus and dedication and doing whatever it takes.

Malala also has CHIRON the Wounded Healer at 26 degrees Libra also opposite that karmic SATURN in ARIES, thorough being wounded, she becomes a great healer for others. This is ARCHETYPAL.

CHIRON the wounded healer, at 26 degrees of LIBRA in the 1st house of her identity is at the apex of a T-square with her Sun, her source and planet NEPTUNE and Asteroid ATHENA- again another head reference, Athena, Goddess of wisdom, was a war Goddess, famed for her intelligence, she sprung fully armoured from her father Zeus’s head. The Greek city of Athens is named in her honor.

NEPTUNE at 28 degrees Capricorn Retrograde. Neptune is the planet of dreamers, idealists, visionaries. Neptune rules images, glamour, Hollywood. Neptune in Capricorn’s bring spiritual compassion and faith into Capricorn traditional corporate structure. Neptune is illusion and Malala has spoken that her real self the one she was before she was shot feels unreal to her now. She has become famous.

MALALA is a messenger on the world’s stage and of course she has MERCURY in LEO, sign of public speakers, stars, leaders, passionate communicators, she wears her heart on her sleeve. She has Mercury exactly opposite to planets URANUS in AQUARIUS which it rules at 7 degrees Retrograde.This aspect literally brings sudden change, Uranus, in the way one acts- LEO in the world. 

Malala is a natural rule breaker, a revolutionary, a rebel. She wrote a blog at 11 years old. Uranus rules the Internet. Malala is a natural messenger for change. She probably never felt she fit in. She is  a messenger of Higher Consciousness.

She has MERCURY conjunct her VENUS IN LEO. The girl was born to be leader, who speaks from the heart-, for women’s rights- Venus in LEO also opposite URANUS. Brilliant insights and a true Blue FEMINIST and leader.

JUPITER, planet of education, foreigners, religious fanatics, expansion, trust, good luck is at 20 degrees of Aquarius also Retrograde opposite Venus in Leo. Malala speaks out for women- Venus/education and revolution. It’s all there all over her natal chart. She was lucky to not have died from the shot.

Malala has PLUTO at 3 degrees Retrograde of Sagittarius; sign of Teachers, higher education, foreigners, travelling, religious fanatics, philosophy, freedom, good humour, optimism, faith. PLuto symbolizes the SOUL, and so Malala’s soul is here to educate, to uplift, to show the way and help people aim higher.

MALALA’s highest spiritual goal, what she is aiming towards is her NORTH NODE at 21 degrees VIRGO, an earth sign of service to others. Analytical, perfectionists, hard-working, humble, intelligence. She is a natural communicator and writer, she loves nature. 

Her SOUTH NODE or past life is 21 degrees PISCES. Malala came into this life from a very spiritual perspective, she came to play the role of a martyr, Jesus Christs’ symbol is Pisces the sign of the martyr.  She is inherently spiritual, compassionate, forgiving. 

Malala has LILITH at 12 degrees VIRGO directly opposite Ceres at 13 degrees PISCES. She also embodies the archetypal Mother- Ceres/ whore/Lilith split.  This means she is an archetypal holder of that projection. The Taliban are trying to enforce that ancient split. Lilith is the original Woman before EVE, she is nature, wild, free, sexual, untamed. Who became feared by all Patriarchal religions, suppressed and distorted. The story continues.

ON OCTOBER 9 2012

the transiting SUN was in Libra in square to her natal Sun and opposite Saturn. This is like looking through a gunsight.

PLUTO was at 7 degrees Capricorn in square to her natal MARS in LIBRA and her MOON at 13 degrees Libra. Again another karmic set up shot.

Transiting Mars at 1 degree of Sagittarius was conjunct her natal PLUTO. A  difficult violent soul changing aspect was in play.

SATURN was at zero degrees of SCORPIO and had  just crossed her natal Chiron at 26 degrees of LIBRA triggering that. Saturn was square to her Uranus and her Mercury a sudden unexpected chaotic message.

The transiting North Node at 26 degrees Scorpio was inconjunct to her Natal Saturn and sextile (60 degrees) Malala’s natal North Node at 21 degrees VIRGO. Again this is a setting up of karmic event to click. Malala’s natal North Node is quincunx  (150 degrees also called inconjunct) to her Saturn. The Transit creates what’s called a yod, a finger of GOD aspect pointing to her karmic Saturn in Aries. Clearly the time was ripe. 

Malala is one incredible modern role model.  She is the most famous 16 year on the planet right now.  I believe she will continue to change the world. She is still a Taliban target and must be very carefull especially as she has become so famous. Specifically she has to be careful of being poisoned or gassed in the nest year.

Like father, like Prince, family synastry Astrology

The Little Prince made his debut appearance July 23 at 1 day old. Heralded by the entire world.

Prince William Duchess Kate and baby prince

Looks like a strapping healthy baby, beautiful, with long fingers, he will be tall like his parents.
All children and their parent’s chart usually align very closely. Let’s look at how the baby Prince aligns with his Dad’s astrology chart first, then we’ll put them all together.

Prince William and Prince Astrology

Serious astrologers I am doing a brief synastry here.

The Little Prince and his Dad both share the Sun in Cancer, his Dad Sun is at ZERO degrees Cancer and the Prince’s at the very last critical 29th degree 59 minutes. Prince William’s Moon is also conjunct to his son’s Mars /Jupiter conjunction in early Cancer. They will be so close. Prince William will be a total doting dad. Cancer’s are very emotional, caring, nurturing, sensitive and protective Father’s. They will enjoy sports and share the same likes and literally feel the same things.

The Prince North Node- his highest Spiritual goal is at 13 degrees Cancer conjunct the Prince’s Mercury- his intellect and communicative style and the Vertex which is a karmic intake point. The child will be father to the man.

Prince William’s Jupiter- which governs expansion, royalty, higher education, philosophy is in Scorpio Retrograde at the HIGH NOON/MC or WORDLY position of his own chart and his Son’s Saturn is close by at 4 degrees Scorpio. Saturn is Karma and responsibility and maturity, they will teach each other much. The son fulfills the Path of Royal DUTY and Worldly acclaim exactly.

Prince William’s Jupiter at ZERO degrees SCORPIO is also square’s his son’s SUN and his Moon in late Capricorn. He will see his father as his greatest teacher, their relationship will be like a big adventure, but serious, the Royal dignity, history and ritual appearing reserved.

The Prince’s VENUS -his values, creativity, sense of the Feminine is at ZERo degrees VIRGO is conjunct exactly the new degree of ROYAL STAR REGULUS which just moved from LEO after 2000 years to reside in down to earth VIRGO, in regal service to the people for the next 2,000 years. Little Prince’s Venus is SQUARE to his Father’s VENUS CHIRON- the wounded healer conjunction in late Taurus which is on ALGOL- the Fixed Star with the Worst reputation in the sky.  All squares are stressful and this is what makes powerful results. This star carries very sinister motifs. Something about healing the father’s deepest vulnerability, his love for his mother. Little Prince Venus also squares his Dad’s Uranus in Sagittarius, they will discover this in a surprising way, casually, it will shock his father.

The Baby’s Pluto at 9 degrees Capricorn is opposite his fathers Sun Moon conjunction and it squares his Dad’s Mar’s Saturn conjunction in Libra. They will have friction between them and intensity,the surface may look nice and Libra like but there will be heavy feelings and power struggles underneath.

The Prince’s Neptune at 4 degrees Pisces Retrograde squares his father’s Mercury in Gemini. They may not understand each other logically. The boy will be very imaginative, sensitive and spiritual and his dad much more logical and detached.The prince’s Chiron also squares his father’s Mercury. Prince William will always be child like on some level which is a good thing, playfull, and curious and open, a wonderful father.

The Prince’s North Node at 13 degrees SCORPIO is exactly conjunct his father’s CERES -the new minor planet symbolizing the Great mother. The Prince’s highest spiritual goal is to embody the Mother his father lost so tragically at such a young age. Truly amazing.
