RIP Mr. Spock, Leonard Nimoy’s “fascinating” stars

Leonard Nimoy,the actor who portrayed the pointy eared half-Vulcan Mr. Spock on Star Trek fame passed away February 27 from COPD at 83 years old. Millions of Trekkie fans are in mourning. William Shatner, the original Captain Kirk, NASA, astronaut Chris Hadfield and thousands of fans poured out tweets and tributes to Nimoy in a tribute to how much he had enriched and touched their lives.

 Star Trek first appeared September 8, 1966 with  Nimoy portraying a very cool, half alien, half earthling first officer of the Star Ship Enterprise who would logically comment on our all too human emotional reactions.  He portrayed an alien Jekyll and Hyde type of character. We all know why we loved Mr. Spock. 

Nimoy was much more than Spock. He was also an also a film director; Star Trek III: The Search for Spock” (1984) and “Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home” (1986) which he helped write. He also directed the hugely successful comedy Three Men and A Baby in 1987. He  was also an accomplished photographer, poet and made music. He was nominated four times for Emmy awards. 

He created the famous split fingered gesture, the “May you Live long and Propser” hand salute  is based on Jewish blessings from the Cohen High Priests.  Nimoy came from an orthodox immigrant family and took up his Jewish roots again later in life. 

Lets look at the stars in Mr. Nimoy’s chart. There was an asteroid named after him, Mr. Spock. #230,. There’s also an Asteroid called Enterprise #9777, and a hypothetical trans-Mercury planet called Vulcan which I also included.

There are two different birth times on the Internet for Leonard Nimoy one has 8:30 am which is unvalidated and apparently he revealed he was an Aries with a Scorpio Ascendant. 

I’ve rectified his birth chart to 10:30 pm with the transits of the Star Trek premiere Sept. 8 1966

Leonard Nimoy was a quadruple Aries with SUN, North Node, Uranus and Mercury in a tight “stellium”. At any birth time this quadruple Aries indicates an ambitious, independent, strong willed leader. A unique, rebellious, communicator whose ideas are ahead of their time, futuristic, inventive, with a detached way of seeing things from a Higher Intellect who thought he was an alien. He was also famous for his resonant voice, Mercury rules speech.

His Moon seems to be in Cancer in this chart. If he was born earlier in the day at 8:30 a.m. the Moon would have been in late Gemini with a Gemini Ascendant. That chart could also fit his personality.

Venus in Aquarius indicates a love of the unique, the different, the alien. Venus in Aquarius is detachment, inventing, organizing. Aquarius rules the stars, and it rules outer space and pioneers-

” To boldly go where no man has gone before.” the Enterprise Star Trek motto. 

Neptune is Retrograde in Virgo and widely opposite Venus. If this chart is correct it is the highest placed planet in his chart and carry’s the most influence. Neptune rules fantasy, photography, writing, poetry, the arts, spirituality, Hollywood and addictions. Neptune in Virgo brings down to earth Neptune’s dreams and fantasies. It literally created this Sci-Fi fantasy in everyone’s TV boxes in the 60’s.  Nimoy was a hard-working and practical dreamer, a very creative and spiritual man. I loved his The Full Body Project of 300 pound nude women. 

Leonard had a natal Jupiter Pluto conjunction in Cancer which symbolizes a person with regal bearing, a soul of great wealth, power, emotion and depth. Saturn in Capricorn is opposite Pluto and square to his North Node Uranus Mercury conjunction.This man had a powerful destiny to change consciousness which would bring him fame.

The Saturn Pluto Uranus T-square is generational, yes. With Mercury and his North Node involved this indicates he was destined to build a long-lasting career {Saturn} based on changing {Uranus } and alien {Uranus} communications {Mercury} concepts and ideas {Mercury} of the Collective unconscious. {Pluto}.

His Natal Mars at 29 degrees Cancer indicates he was a loving, sensitive, compassionate person, who was very connected to his roots, his family and to nurturing others.

The Asteroid Enterprise was at zero degrees of Aquarius  close to Saturn in Capricorn { Nimoy’s karma and his past} opposite his Natal Mars. Saturn in Capricorn is career. 

The Asteroid  Mr. Spock is conjunct his natal Chiron in Taurus. I find this “fascinating” as Mr.Spock would say. Chiron in Taurus is about struggling with the very sensuous, dense, earth realm by embodying the wounded healer. Isn’t that what Mr. Spock was? 

The hypothetical trans-Mercury planet called VULCAN was at 2 degrees of Aries conjunct Nimoy’s SUN! Yes he really was a Vulcan. 

On Star Trek Premier date

A SUN Mercury conjunction on his M.C. with transiting VULCAN at his highest career point with the Uranus Pluto conjunction in his 10th house of fame. Venus is opposite his Natal Venus and conjunct his Part of Fortune for this chart. Jupiter in Cancer is almost on his Natal Mars.

The transiting NORTH NODE which symbolizes being accepted by others is at 18 degrees of Taurus exactly conjunct to the Asteroid Mr. SPOCK! It is Leonard’s fate. Neptune is at 19 degrees of Scorpio conjunct to the South Node, indicating a destiny connected to acting.This forms a transiting T-square, which is opposite Asteroid Mr. Spock and his natal Chiron and squaring his natal Venus in Aquarius..  

At his death Feb 27, 2015

The Planet URANUS is exactly conjunct to where it was when Leonard was born as well and his North Node. This is most definitely a symbol of returning to the Universe. Nimoy died from COPD which is a lung disease. Mercury rules the lungs which was conjunct to his North Node, indicating a fated weakness. Pluto is exactly squaring his Nodes, Uranus and Mercury too which is a soul call to return to Source. The transiting North node is also conjunct to his South Node in reverse position to where it was at his birth. 

Venus is just passed and Mars is exactly conjunct to his SUN at 5 degrees Aries indicating the outpouring of love and meaning which Leonard held for generations of Star Trek fans.

Leonard was experiencing a Neptune opposition with Chiron the wounded healer at 15 degrees of Pisces opposite to the Mid Heaven if this chart and conjunct his IC or his roots.

The Sun and Neptune are conjunct to VULCAN indicating another highlighted spiritual return to the Light and source, even an imaginal source.

The asteroid Enterprise is at one degree Leo conjunct to his natal Mars in Cancer. Star Trek will always be remembered.

Jupiter is in Leo trining Nimoy’s Uranus, North Node, Mercury which is a great big-hearted blessing.

Saturn is in Sagittarius sextiling his Natal Saturn making a wide trine to his Natal Sun. This indicates a blessing.

We will always remember you Leonard and Mr. Spock.  His last tweet
