What makes Iggy Pop? stars Astrology

Happy Birthday to IGGY POP April 21 he is 68 years old. The acknowledged Grandfather of  punk, the outrageous unpredictable usually shirtless Iggy led the way for many others to follow. Often imitated there is only one IGGY, never mind Iggy Azalea. 

young man iggy pop music Tara Greene astrology

Born James Newell Osterberg Jr. his parents were entirely supportive of him as a young teen. He started out as a drummer with a blues band called The Prime Movers where he got his stage name Iggy. Co-bandmate Michael Erlewine is a prolific genius who created  Matrix Astrology Software the first computerized astrology software in the world in 1977.  

IGGY and MC5: Punk starts here in Detroit City in 1964

They played louder and harder than anyone else and no one wanted to sign them. Kick out the Jams was their first live album.  Iggy became known for his notoriously wild stage act- he originated stage diving. He was inspired by Jim Morrison of the Doors stage presence.

Iggy  wore a maternity dress, white face and aluminum Afro wig for the very first Stooges concert. They were signed by Elektra Records in 1968. Iggy had a worsening heroin addiction at this time. In 1971 he met David Bowie at Max’s Kansas City in New York and Bowie produced Raw Power in 1973. In 1976 Bowie took Iggy along on his Station to Station Tour. 

In 1977 both Bowie and Iggy relocated to West Berlin to kick their drug addictions. Bowie helped him write and produce The Idiot and Lust for Life. They co-wrote China Girl, Tonight and Sister Midnight which Bowie covered himself later.

In 1980 Iggy published an autobiography called I Need More with a forward by Andy Warhol who had  met Iggy when he was still Jim at the Ann Arbor Film Festival in 1966. “I don’t know why he hasn’t made it really big,” wrote the one Pop artist about the other. “He is so good.”

In 1983 Bowie recorded China Girl which helped Iggy’s fortunes as he received royalties. With this support he took three years off to finally overcome his heroin addiction. Then he became a shaman, once he was the wounded healer.

In 1984 he did the title song to the film Repo Man. In 1985 one of his biggest hits Lust For Life was in the popular movie Desperately Seeking Susan with Madonna. He contributed his voice along with Lou Reed in 1985 for an animated film. In 1987 Iggy sung on a ground breaking super artsy video by Japanese composer Ryuichi Sakamoto which won MTV video awards-see below.

Iggy has recorded 16 solo albums to date and still continues to perform live and record. He appeared as a character in the video game Lego Rock Band singing The Passenger and his voice is the tutor. Pop also acts and has appeared in 16 movies including one of my favorites, Jim Jarmusch’s 1995 Dead Man with Johnny Depp and Robert Mitchum with an incredible sound track by Neil Young. 

On April 7, 2011, at age 63, Pop performed “Real Wild Child” on the 10th season of American Idol. The L.A. Times music blog described Pop as being “still magnetic, still disturbing. ” after all these years. 

Lets check out Iggy’ s chart for all of those elements.

po;p star Astrology Tara Greene

From Iggy’s life description you might expect some intense Scorpio, Aries, Leo, Pisces.

Iggy is a solid, earthy, sensuous, body conscious Venusian double Taurus with the Sun and Moon in the 10th house of fame- his parents support of his creativity is in this aspect.

The luninaries are squaring SATURN IN LEO on his 29th degree Cancer Ascendant and also square his Pluto in Leo in the 1st.  Iggy is so very emotional, sensitive and Feminine and Saturn and Pluto give Iggy presence, over the top entertaining mannerism and staying power. Otherwise he would have O.D.’s long ago. He is a trouper, a fighter, a leader,burning to expose his soul in the raw.

Sun and Moon are also opposite Chiron in Scorpio in his 4th house. Iggy is an old soul, who transforms himself, his passion, his fascination with danger, the dark, the taboo, heroin, death and life through his creative Taurus side. This is a shamanic healer aspect.

Iggy has a fearless Mercury MARS ruler of Aries conjunction right on his Mid-Heaven. Iggy is famous for LUST FOR LIFE one of his most successful songs, exemplified in that aspect.That Mercury Mars is opposite NEPTUNE in Libra also right on his I.C. or the roots of his being. Neptune rules spirituality, creativity and addictions. This is the long battle that Iggy fought and also what fuels his creativity, 

JUPITER is in SCORPIO in the 5th house of creativity, performers, love affairs and again that hunger for living larger than life and death, rebirth. Jupiter is in a out of sign Trine with Saturn in Leo. This is a lucky saving angel on Iggy’s shoulders.

IGGY’s South Node at 2 degrees of Sagittarius is also in the 5th house. He has been a philosopher, a teacher, a wanderer, a gypsy, an inspirer, a performer before, perhaps  a magician. I feel he had success before. His North Node is in GEMINI in the 11th house indicated his highest goal is to be the revolutionary, rule breaker, forger, freedom fighter, the one who collaborates with his tribe. 

Uranus in Gemini in the 11th indicate Iggy is a very unique individual and a dualistic minded person. He has a very strong persona, he is a quick change twin-sexed man. He has always cross-dressed and said he did so because there is no shame in dressing like a woman because there is no shame in being a woman. He is a shaman in the ancient sense of the word. 

Iggy has Lilith conjunct Juno in Capricorn squaring his Mars and Mercury. This makes him a champion of women. 

Iggy  is a true original artist who has been faithful to himself all along. This is a rare precious commodity in this world these days.  I admire IGGY for staying true to his heart and soul for being so  OUT THERE and for surviving. In this youth worshipping culture it is important to honor the real survivors. Lesser artists would have abandoned their oevre’s long ago. Thanks Iggy for being you.

Happy Birthday Justin Bieber, Adult Astrology

Justin Bieber, for those who care- 60 MILLION TWITTER followers- { he ranks #2 after singer Katy Perry} will break Twitter on this day wishing their boy Happy Birthday I bet.

Justin who was just a wee cute lad a scant year or so ago it seems is officially an adult March 1.  Congratulations Justin.

You’ve had a rough year and a half or so with fans booing your disgraceful audacity and arrogance.  Multi-run ins with the law. Acting so rude, peeing in public- didn’t some other Canadian band have a hit single titled that? Disgracing your self with ho’s in South America because you forgot they might use their cell phones to video it all? Car crashes, egging your nabes. Your first love Selena, finally left you. You haven’t had a hit record since 2013. Posting in your Calvin Klein’s is just posing. TMZ is always after you.

So What will your first year as a legal adult bring?

Lets look at the star map.

Justin Beiber 21 Astrology, Tara Greene

NATAL & SOLAR RETURN Birthday chart on March 1 2015 in green

Being an adult and growing up is all about being more mature and taking responsibility for yourself and your actions. In astrology terms those qualities are the domain of planet Saturn, the planet of reality, the father, testing, limitations and karmic responsibility.  

Justin has had NEPTUNE, the planet of addictions, illusions, delusions, glamour and creativity conjunct his natal Saturn in Pisces- means literally his father, who he was partying with. Neptune was opposing his hard-working CHIRON in Virgo, where he is the most vulnerable, for the last year making him dazed and confused, lazy, in denial and deluded. Chiron in Virgo opposite Neptune in Pisces is in a drug haze, a mental daze, unthinking and   unorganized.

JUSTIN MUST BRING IT!

Now Justin has SATURN, in Sagittarius, the cosmic cop squaring his Natal Saturn in Pisces exactly. Squares apply pressure. This is a good sobering thing. Saturn in Sagittarius is truth, honesty, reality and the law. Justin will be tested and he will have to prove { Saturn} he has talent {Neptune} and is justifiably creative. Saturn will be in square twice this year. He needs a hit record. It may be really difficult for him. Justin may return to his more conservative roots through religion with a Natal Pisces Sun. His music may become much more spiritually oriented. The world is also going through this energy now too. He may be in more trouble with the law {Sagittarius}  if he doesn’t settle down and do the hard work.

SATURN  will continue to square and challenge Justin’s identity and persona even more so in the fall of 2015 as it exactly squares his 10 degrees Pisces Sun from Sagittarius. He will have to shape up and man up or he may be finished. There will be lots of travelling for Justin. He needs to inspire his fans. Higher education is important to Saturn in Sagittarius. Perhaps Justin will go back to school. He may be forced to do community work for a misdeed. This is also a philanthropic indicator of Justin giving away to charities and helping to raise money for education.

Justin has been affected by hard SATURN TESTS as Saturn crossed over his North Node, Pluto and Ascendant all in the last degrees of Scorpio,  last year. That Natal conjunction is what has made him so wealthy and famous. These are the most difficult degrees in the Zodiac. He is set to go through two more even bigger tests and initiations from Saturn from mid- June to mid September when Saturn retrogrades back through those very heavy, sex, money, power, death, rebirth, wealth and emotions of Scorpio again, then moves forward. Justin is somehow the archetypal boy for these transits also affect the collective the same way. This is a very critical year for Justin. He needs a mature guide to help him. I think they tried and he didn’t listen. Now I think he will.

NEPTUNE, the planet of spirituality, dreams and debt is also close to Justin’s Sun this year. He may still have to wrestle with his angels, the drugs, illusions, the glamour even more so. He must not believe in his own ego at all or that he is All powerful. He would be wise to surrender his ego to God.

Justin is being influenced in numerology by the symbol #12 this year. That is the card of The Hanged Man in the Tarot which is surrender. His fans project {Neptune} that he is a Godlike figure.  The Neptune illusion may wear off in the Light of day {the Sun}. He could also O.D. or self- destruct as Neptune rules self-undoing and martyrdom.

Chiron, the wounded healer was on the roots of Justin’s Natal chart, which symbolizes the shaking of his foundation. Chiron in Pisces was directly opposite his Mid-Heaven, his highest career point and worldly fame last year. This made him look weak and vulnerable. Chiron is about to conjunct his Natal Venus by April’s end and into August and again in 2016. In order to heal himself he must surrender his arrogance to the feminine. He needs to trust his intuition and his dreams, {Venus in Pisces}  to God, {Pisces} and he may go through some deep hurt by a woman or women. Rejection? It could also be a wounding or loss of a woman close to him in his family.

Justin could go through a total make-over in his tastes, and style as Uranus planet of freedom, revolution, inventiveness, and new technology squares his Natal Neptune in Capricorn in July. Even bigger more intense change come in 2016 for Justin when Uranus exactly squares Neptune and opposes his Natal Moon at 24 degrees Libra. Big Changes in his relationships, and with women and especially his mother.

I could talk about Justin’s Solar Return chart but that’s enough for now. I am overdue on other projects and fighting a cold.

I can’t promise it will be all good. It is up to Justin himself to do the hard work. These are tough transits to deal with at any age. I believe Justin chose his time of birth and his parents and all of these events in his life. He must now choose wisely. It is crucial that he does take himself and his influence seriously. I wish him all the best. My daughter Leah, 17 is still a fan.

Dazed and Confused – Led Zeppelin 

Weekend preview, Bitch slap wake up, Astro yoga

I seem to be coming down with a cold. So I will keep this straightforward. Thanks so much for readers who responded to me so kindly.  I love that. Keep it coming. Sometimes  I feel like I am shouting into a big void although I know my wonderful readers are out there. Blessings to you all.

3 weeks till Spring as of Feb 27! and the Huge TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE at the very last degree of the Zodiac. It will be huge, mega huge. Lots to write about:

17 days till the next and last Uranus Pluto square on March 16/17. I’m finishing up my article for that.

The word yoga means to yoke,or unity. We need to feel connected now. To ourselves, our family and our communities. 

JUPITER is inconjunct to PLUTO ! 

I think I should use the word Incontinent to describe this energy.

and that makes for difficult power-mongering and ego upstaging. Ok you will probably hear a lot of flack from Mr. Putin, Mt. Mr Netanyahu , or any bigwigs in the vicinity. You will personally feel like ducking for cover.

The weekend belongs mainly to the CANCER moon. You know what that means.  A yoga of family unity. A yoga of connection, Tummy upsets, mom, food, dinners, nurturing, caring, children, emotional sensitivity, needing to yoke yourself to emotional safety and home. 

BITCH SLAP CARDINAL CROSS

Besides the ongoing Cardinal CROSS to bear this weekend Mars and Venus are also involved. My Freudian slip, I wrote invulved, a very feminine adjective, adverb? A bitch slap. YES RELATIONSHIP BIG SHAKE UPS! Wake up now or be awoken with a hammer.

Moon trines SUN and NEPTUNE in Pisces

for a very romantic, idealistic, escapist, fantasy and creative overtone which continues into Saturday EST. Be careful about your eyes glossing over and going unconscious.

Feb 28 

Cancerian overflow moon is inconjunct to Mercury in Aquarius 

making it difficult to break away from the pack as the sentimental pull is so strong Also words and communications may get flubbed like a Mercury Retrograde. We are still in Mercury Retro shadow period until March 4.

More Cardinal Cross Bitch Slap energies

Moon square Uranus opposes Pluto and trines Chiron in Pisces. 

After the firestorm of deep dark held back emotions, there will be compassion and forgiveness. 

Moon goes Void of course at 9:53 am PDT/ 12:53 pm EDT until March 1 at 3:34 pm PDT/6:34 pm EDT

MARCH 1. Comes in like a lion.  

LEO MOON ASTROLOGY TARA GREENE

MERCURIAL DAY as Mercury sextiles Uranus and opposes Jupiter in Leo. A really great day to  relax, stay close to home and do some spring planning. New ideas and inspirations are easy to come by. 

We will need LEONINE Courage this month.

I have a number of deadlines. I intend to do a Justin Bieber year ahead on his birthday today.  I also have writing to do. I will be away for a few days next week working on my book out of town in nature.

In the news:

The ISIL gang has just destroyed precious Assyrian artefacts in Syria such as Goddess statues and ancient winged lion symbols from thousands of years back. This breaks my heart. The world needs to stop this scourge. Instead a Tweet about what color is a dress and lammas on the loose in Sun City make headlines and stop Tumblr. Come on people. The FCC voted on Net neutrality too. This Uranus Pluto Square is supposed to be waking people up. If you don’t wake up on your own, then you may be rudely awoken. 

WAKE UP by Arcade Fire 

Somethin’ filled up
My heart with nothin’,
Someone told me not to cry.

Now that I’m older,
My heart’s colder,
And I can see that it’s a lie.

Children wake up,
Hold your mistake up,
Before they turn the summer into dust.

If the children don’t grow up,
Our bodies get bigger but our hearts get torn up.
We’re just a million little god’s causin’ rain storms turnin’ every good thing to rust.
I guess we’ll just have to adjust.

With my lightnin’ bolts a glowin’
I can see where I am goin’ to be
When the reaper he reaches and touches my hand.

With my lightnin’ bolts a glowin’
I can see where I am goin’
With my lightnin’ bolts a glowin’
I can see where I am go-goin’

You better look down below.

R.I.P. Ray Manzarek, the end,Astrology of a rock legend

I was sad to hear that co-founder,organist and bass player of the Doors Ray Manzarek passed on May 20.

I was a huge Doors fan and got to see them perform live when they first released Light my Fire in a small C.B.C. Toronto studio in 1967 with a maybe a hundred people or so in the audience. I also saw them play two more times and met them twice backstage. I have  a nice photo of Ray which I will scan and post.

Ray’s signature organ music, he played bass and lead, certainly is the mainstay of the Doors sound. Jim was the writer and leader, but the two really coalesce the powerful Doors music sound. Of course John Densmore and Robby Kreiger also made the entire group what it was.

Ray Manzarek was an AQUARIAN born February 12 1939 Chicago Illinois 3:30 am.

The Doors Astrology Tara Greene

click on chart to view larger

Ray had the SUN in the 2nd house of resources conjunct his Mercury-planet of communications. He was an age of Aquarius kind of guy. An innovator, a genius, worked well in groups and a great organizer.

MOON in SAGITTARIUS at 6 degrees is conjunct Mars at 8 degrees in his 12th house. This is  a very spiritual placement.  Ray’s was a fiery emotional and spiritually driven man. His drive {Mars} was to awaken and inspire people. His Music was honest, inspiring, philosophical, all-encompassing.

SAGITTARIUS ASCENDANT 24 degrees

Close to the Galactic Center. This placement makes people visionaries because they are really tuned into a HIGHER REALITY and vibration. They are metaphysicians of one sort or another. Touring, travelling and seeing new places was something  Ray must have loved. I am certian he was very well read.

 VENUS his artistic talents was at 6 degrees CAPRICORN in the 1st  house of self.

He loved to work, he was ambitious for success and a practical disciplined hard worker.  Serious reliable and responsible. He was probably the rock of the doors. Jim was the flagrant leader and wild man poster boy poet. Ray always wore suits in true Capricorn style. He was also a serious film student, meeting  Jim Morrison at UCLA film school.

Ray had JUPITER at 9 degrees Pisces also in the 2nd house of resources. Jupiter is the traditional ruler of  PISCES and SAGITTARIUS. Pisces is the sign of all artists, musicians, creatives. His musical resource was SPIRIT itself. May have been some addictions issues there as well. Playing the organ, an instrument usually reserved for churches also shows the religious nature of his art.

SATURN at 14 degrees ARIESs at the bottom of his chart on the IC.

Ray ws serious about doing his own thing.  His dad must have had a strong influence on him. He had great energy and initiative and a unique communications style. He was meant to be an entrepreneur and the King of his own domain.

PLUTO at the 29th Critical degree of CANCER he was born at the end of the Cancer Pluto generation. He was emotionally intense and loyal, Protective of his friends and family and his privacy.

NEPTUNE in the 9th house is in VIRGO at 22 degrees Retro.

Neptune is the highest elevated planet and shows him as a creative/musical teacher, film maker, philosopher, globe-trotter, eclectic in his approach. A  mystical man,a dreamer, a romantic, a work aholic, a perfectionist who honed his craft to the Nth degree.

URANUS is at 14 degrees TAURUS in his 5th house of creativity

Uranus rules his Aquarius SUN & Mercury. The signature of an original pioneering person, who walked their own path. The 5th house is the house of creative self-expression as a gift of Love.

Ray’s NORTH NODE was at 12 degrees of SCORPIO in the 10th house.

A SCORPIO north Node says that Ray’s highest goal was to be an agent of deep emotional change, rebirth, transformation. Death, the shadow, the deep dark secrets, taboo’s, was part of his worldly fame. His music was the accompaniment for Jim Morrison’s deep dark sexy poetry/songs. Ray’s playing was an integral part of the musical depths to which the Door’s took its listener’s. It was dark, taboo, THE END. 

AT his DEATH

Ray died of bile cancer in Germany. He was private about his struggle with Cancer. He left his wife of 45 years, a son and three grandchildren. The recent SOLAR ECLIPSE of May 9 was at 19 degrees TAURUS and fell in a square- hard aspect between his Mercury and SUN. Solar eclipses change the nature of a person’s Identity. The Uranus- Pluto square also fell 2 degrees from his SATURN close to his IC. Endings, roots.  NEPTUNE at 5 degrees PISCES was squaring his MOON in the 12th house. A beautiful return call home to spirit.

Thanks for contributing so much to American POP music. YOu are an icon. You will always be remembered.
