 INSPIRATIONAL CARD OF THE DAY 

Queen of Cups Tara Greene Tarot

QUEEN OF CUPS/ CHALICES Metamorphosis Tarot

The Queen of Cups Water of water, the mother of the oceans, tears, deep unconscious feelings. Pay attention to your dreams and inner visions. Allow yourself to feel fully. This is the most feminine of all cards. The womb, the waters of life. Water of Love,,,,.

I was LUCID DREAMING last night, I was in a very poor place last night. I went from one bus station to another, then  railway stations. There were poor ragged people it was like being in the depression in the 1930’s or what the refugees are enduring these days in Europe. There were poor crying children and lost boys. It was dark with small lamp lights on the streets. I kept asking people what time it was but no one had a watch, or a clock. I kept trying to get on a bus to leave. Then I was on the bus and kept seeing more and more of this sad landscape of hopeless people. It was very grounding.

The image in the Queen of cups shows the Queen with pigs, who symbolize wisdom and stupidity. The brown pig has human legs and reminds me of Donald Trump.

RIP “you sexy thing” life and death of Errol Brown

I must have missed this. Hot Chocolate lead singer and songwriter Errol Brown passed away May 6 in his home in Kingston, Jamaica surrounded by his wife of 30 years and his daughters. He died from liver cancer.

Hot Chocolate singer

 

Hot Chocolate has one of the biggest pop/disco hits ever in the world. 1975’s “You sexy thing” / I believe in Miracles”  which Errol co-wrote for his wife  became the only track that made British Top Ten status in the 1970’s, 1980’s and 1990’s because of its usage in the 1997 hit British movie The Full Monty. 

Brown moved to the U.K. as a child.  John Lennon helped the group in its fame after he approved the bands funk-soul reggae version of Give Peace A Chance.

The Band had many top hits; Everyone’s a Winner, Emma, So You Win Again, and my fave Put Your Love In Me.  The band performed at the wedding reception for Prince Charles and Lady Diana.

Errol was awarded an MBE in 2003 and he was touring up till 2009.  

New York Times and Washington Post wrote obits

death and life Astrology, Tara Greene

For a man who became famous for singing you sexy thing. I find it totally cosmically in tune that he would have the SUN in Sexy Scorpio conjunct to Mercury planet of communications on his Scorpio Mid-Heaven or worldly fame position where he shines the brightest.  OK that just about says it all. 

SCORPIO is traditionally ruled by Mars. Errol had Mars RETROGRADE at 20 degrees of GEMINI which Mercury also rules, making his Scorpio communications abilities to transport others through his personal sexual powerful aura even stronger.

Mars is conjunct to Saturn also Retrograde in this Solar 10th house chart

in the 5th house of creativity, artists, leaders, big-hearted, loyal, passionate folks. that fits too.

Mars conjunct Saturn both Retrograde would usually be considered a very hard aspect traditionally. It show a serious communications side to Errol. He carefully thought out and organized business. This aspect also gave Errol staying power, Saturn rules maturity and longevity. Plus Saturn is conjunct to the North Star which often shows up in those who have big success in their lives. Others naturally revolve around them. They are “way showers” and compasses. I believe he was a consummate professional. There may have been hardships and difficulty when he was young.  His family moved from Jamaica to the U.K. when he was 12. I don’t have details about his early life. 

Saturn also squares his Natal VENUS/NEPTUNE conjunction in LIBRA 

In this chart these two incredibly romantic, creative, idealistic, soul mate, socially adept charming, dreamy planets are in the 8th house which is traditionally Scorpio.  This strengthened Errol enabling him to make his dreams become reality.

The song that I love most from Hot Chocolate is Put Your Love In Me. I searched for years to find out who did it. To me it embodies that Venus/Neptune conjunction perfectly. It is so spiritual, dreamy, romantic and feminine. A man asking a woman to put her love in him. Beautiful 

ABOUT VENUS CONJUNCT NEPTUNE

Anyone with a natal Venus/Neptune conjunction is incurably romantic especially in Libra. I have this same aspect myself in Libra. Depending on other planetary placements in anyone’s chart this aspect can make one prone to be a dreamer without substance, someone who  can be a martyr, very compassionate, an incredibly creative person, an artist, musician, actor, poet, film maker. These people can get lost in illusions and delusions, bankruptcy, addictions, drug abuse, gambling, sex addiction and alcoholism is the other, down side of Venus/Neptune .

Moon in Taurus in the 4th house squaring Jupiter in Leo in the 7th

Rules singers, sensual people. Errol was a private person whose home and family were everything. He was a stubborn, hard worker, strong and physically attractive. 

Pluto was conjunct his North Node in Leo on the 7th house cusp

This aspect guaranteed that Errol’s soul was fully manifesting in his lifetime and guarantees success. It also confers fame, status, riches, strong adoration from others. He was a big-hearted generous, intense, soulful man. 

Errol also had Jupiter in Leo in the 7th house of “others”

Again a kingly sign, generous, passionate, charismatic, the “sun king” royalty, fame. He made others feel like Queens or Kings.He played for Royalty.

Uranus in Gemini in the 4th house

Errol thought differently and communicated in new inventive ways. He had a lot of energy and needed freedom although intensely loyal to his family. 

Errol was a #22 The Fool, the enlightened One, and he is a Soul Number 4 the King or Emperor. 

His DEATH 

The liver is ruled by Jupiter, he died from liver cancer. 

Jupiter in Leo is squaring his Sun vitality and his Mercury. 

Mars was conjunct his Natal Moon in Taurus

transitting Venus is sitting right on his Natal Saturn

A beautiful ending to a life well lived. 

The Total Solar Eclipse at 29 degrees Pisces was square to his Natal Saturn and opposite Venus/Neptune

That symbolizes and end to life and a peaceful return to the Source, This could have been Errol’s last life time, which is  a good thing.

We will miss you Errol but your music lives on.

I’ll meet you in the dream state.

I wanted to stop and send an RIP blessing to one of my favorite 60’s pop inspirational singers Lesley Gore who passed away Feb 16 at 68 years old of lung cancer. 

Lesley Gore Immortality Tara Greene

Lesley Gore Astrology Tara Greene

Lesley, born Lesley Sue Goldstein was a Taurus born May 2 1946. I have no accurate birth time so use Noon. Famous for being a pop sensation at 16 years old in 1963 with “It’s My Party”  the singer-songwriter helped Quincy Jones score his first number one hit. Leslie followed up with a string of pop hits including Marvin Hamlisch’s first hit composition “Sunshine, Lollipops and Rainbows” in 1963.

“You Don’t Own Me” which was written by two men incidentally was truly the first Feminist pop anthem. Released in 1964 it held the number two position behind the Beatles, “I Want to Hold Your Hand.”  The song  continues to stand up and thrill today.

Lesley’s passionate vocals always carried any song. She continued to write songs and contributed “Out Here On My Own” to the hit 1980 movie FAME working with her songwriter brother, which won her an Academy Award nomination.

Born Lesley Sue Goldstein, she also came out as a lesbian later in her life. She and narrated a LGBT oriented public television show, In the Life  on American TV in the 2000’s. 

Lets look at her chart in Life and at Death

Lesley was a double Taurus, with Sun and Moon in the sensuous and earthy practical sign. Ruled by Venus which gives a beautiful voice poise and lovely graceful features. Lesley had Venus plus Uranus conjunct the North Node in Gemini indicating she had a dual very charming nature and was a naturally great communicator and writer.

Uranus conjunct the North Node is someone who communicates a message of liberation, freedom and individuality, exactly the “You don’t own me” singers karmic message to the world.  Her songs will always be a freedom flag for youth with that Gemini energy.

The main T-square in her chart comes from Mercury in Aries opposite to Jupiter in Libra and square to Saturn at 19 degrees of Cancer. Lesley  was a hard-working young woman who was very mature at 16.  She managed to stay grounded and modest and managed to live a normal life in spite of the fame at such a tender age. She went on to to graduate from Sarah Lawrence College.

Lesley had Neptune, planet of artists and creatives conjunct to Chiron the wounded  healer in Libra opposite to her natal Mercury. She was a shy person, who felt self-conscious, yet sang out her pain.   ” Its my party and I’ll cry if I want to. “

Lesley also had Lilith at the 29th degree of Scorpio-one of the most powerful degrees in the Zodiac opposite to her natal Venus in Gemini. No wonder she sang “You don’t own me.” OMG that is Lilith’s popular anthem totally. This would also have been indicated her naturally being a lesbian.

Her passionate voice, natural leadership and star power comes from her Mars, Pluto conjunction in Leo. People were naturally drawn to her powerful voice and big-hearted delivery. She was every inch a star.

At her death of lung cancer, Feb 16 2015.

I am sorry to say that her natal Mercury, Saturn and Chiron the Wounded Healer were all under the pressure of the Cardinal Cross aspect from Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn, opposing, squaring and conjunct those planets. It’s tough.

A Ceres, Pluto, Moon conjunction at 14+ degrees of Capricorn opposite her natal Saturn is a very beautiful symbol of Lesley being called home to be comforted and held by the GREAT MOTHER in Death/Life. 

Neptune is squaring Lesley’s Sun, which also symbolizes a peaceful death, an easy letting go of life and being carried by spiritual bliss to return to the Light and the Source.

The North Node in Aries is also conjunct to her Natal Neptune in Libra. Another a beautiful symbol for an artist who has done her work, given the gift of her soul and is now free to go back to Source. 

Thank you Lesley from the millions of fans who loved your voice and your music. You will be treasured and remembered always. Namaste. Blessing to you.  a fan.

YOU DON’T OWN ME 1963 Lesley Gore 

Sunshine,Lollipops and Rainbows 

Out her on my own Fame written by Michael and Lesley Gore  

Cory Monteith RIP, Glee star,Astrology of life and death

July 14

My daughter Leah, 15 woke me up yesterday crying because Cory Monteith, 31,  had suddenly passed away yesterday July 13 in a Vancouver Hotel room. Like millions of other Glee fans who’ve watched since 2009, Cory Monteith, who played football hunk, Glee singer and drummer Finn Hudson, was a huge fave. Rocketing to fame after the first season, he graced the covers of Vanity Fair along with co-star and real life fiancée Lea Michele. Having never really sung before his renditions of old pop favorites which made him a multi million selling pop star. Sounds pretty lucky.

Cory Monteith Astrology chart Tara Greene

The handsome 6′ 3 ” Monteith was raised in Calgary. His parents divorced when he was 7 and he was raised by his Mom in Vancouver with an older brother.  He started using drugs and alcohol at 13. He dropped out of High school at 16 and got into petty crimes. He went to rehab at 19 when his Mother and others intervened. He said ‘ I am lucky to be alive.” He started acting after rehab. He found great success and real life love with fellow GLEE star Lea Michelle, they were engaged and apparently planning to marry in two weeks. He had recently checked into rehab again in March of this year. He was found dead in his hotel room on July 13 after failing to check out and apparently had died a few hours before. No drug evidence was found so the news said, but an autopsy is scheduled shortly to find out the cause of death.  Fans and friends world-wide poured out their shock and grief  immediately with Tweets . Condolences to Cory’s family, Lea Michelle and all the Glee crew.  Cory, may your soul rise to the Light.

Let’s look at his Astrology chart to find our exactly who Cory was.

Cory Monteith Astrology Tara Greene

Cory was born May 11 1982 in Calgary Canada, I have no exact birth time, so use Noon for a public figure.

An earthy, sensual, down to earth Taurus with Wounded healer CHIRON conjunct to his SUN. Right away this points to someone who physically experiences vulnerability and pain. His task is to bring that pain to Light or not.

The noon chart gives him a LEO Ascendant which is perfect for a StAR, a performer, a charismatic, person.

Looking at this chart I’d have to say I believe he was born earlier, and that the MOON would be in the latter degrees of Sagittarius conjunct the planet of actors, addictions, compassionate idealists, Neptune.

This would place Cory’s Moon, symbolizing his mother and the unconscious, on the Galactic Center, a very higher consciousness focussed place which often makes people feel connected to a higher teaching but feel very alienated on the earth plane.

With Neptune conjunct the Moon in Sagittarius, Corey was a very sensitive, psychic, compassionate, dreamer and easily susceptible to alcohol and drug abuse. Sagittarius is the sign of the teacher, philosopher, jock, travellers, people who  relate on an International level. Moon in Sagittarius peeps are very affable, easy-going, laid back, good-humoured, promise more than they can deliver. They are often self- taught, although always hungry to learn.

Mercury in GEMINI is in its home sign, and Cory was younger looking, he was playing a teenager when he was in his late 20’s. This is the sign of the twin personality, dual natured, charming, talkative, a trickster personality. Mercury is opposite Uranus in Sagittarius making Cory susceptible to radical changes of mind, ambivalent and  very highly wired, and tuned like a racing car, easy for him to get “strung out.”  He was a unique individual, who marched to his own drummer, very bright, Uranus was Retrograde in his natal chart, a karmic sign.

Cory was born with Venus in Aries, and Venus rules charm, money, relationships, independence, anger, defenses. He would have been attracted to strong independent, self- made women. Venus in Aries brings spontaneity into love affairs, and anything they desire, they just simply jump and forget to look before they leap. Venus in Aries peeps tend to live fast and dangerously, they crave speed and excitement. He knew what he wanted instantly and went for it.

 Born with Mars at Zero degrees Libra RETROGRADE opposite Venus and square to the Moon. This T- square is the basic focal point of his entire life.

Cory had a LOT OF RETROGRADE planets in his Natal chart, MARS,  JUPITER,  SATURN, URANUS, NEPTUNE & PLUTO. This is a hallmark of everyone born during the same time period.

Retrograde planets indicate KARMIC past life lessons that weren’t learned, so the individual comes back to the present life to try to finish what was left undone from previous lifetimes and with the same individuals. Mars in Libra is weak and uncertain and needs relationships. He had a very soft side to him. Cory’s deepest emotional relationships, especially with his Mom, the Moon, and Lea Michele, symbolized by Venus in Aries were definitely karmic. I believe he said they looked at each other and instantly recognized the other. That is a “soul mate” aspect.

JUPITER is Retro in Scorpio, so Cory had a seriously large shadow. Scorpio is the sign of birth and death regeneration, sex, power, money, secrets, obsessions, the Unconscious. He had raw huge appetites and his shadow or demons ran him most likely.

SATURN at 16 degrees Libra Retrograde is again especially Karmic. Repeating relationships, very charming, appearing nice, the go-between, the ambassador, Mr. Nice Guy. Cory was born during the major divorce era and the divorce of his parents at a young age may have been one of the causes of his drug use.

URANUS is at 3 degrees Sagittarius a person who will radicalize education, Interesting that his TV show Glee was about high school students learning interpersonal and creative coping skills through singing. This is a generational aspect.

NEPTUNE at 26 degrees SAGITTARIUS, on the G.C. and conjunct LILITH!

Lilith is the “demoness” the shadow feminine, the untamed wild psyche aspect. This alone could have well contributed to his drug and addiction problems. I believe he had major insecurity and abandonment issues.

PLUTO in Libra Retrograde  again a Generational aspect. Pluto in Libra is caught in a karmic web of relationship needs, secrets, control, shadow material, haunted by insecurities.

Cory’s North Node at 14 degrees Cancer

is exactly conjunct the U.S. Sun so no wonder the Canadian star made a huge success in the U.S.

This is also the degree of Sirius the large star the Egyptians worshipped as OSIRUS the God of death and rebirth. Jesus’s story was patterned after Osirus’s archetypal story. So Cory was meant to learn through this archetype. In Cancer,its all about family, love, emotional security was what he needed to develop.

The South Node in Capricorn indicates that he had been a man of substance, power, wordly success in a past life. Someone who was “all business” and had a serious desire for success and fame nature. We all tend to be attracted to what we did in the past.

ON THE DAY HE DIED

WOW the transits are exact and VERY stressful.

MARS at the critical 29th degree of GEMINI conjunct the North Star is directly opposite Cory’s Natal Neptune and his Moon. Mars in Gemini is impulsive, perhaps Cory had a bi-polar problem?  The Mars Neptune conjunction certainly suggests a drug overdose and connected to the Moon through an unconscious neediness, a hole in his emotional body that craved being filled.

Jupiter in early Cancer is square to his Natal Venus in Aries again, risk taking and leaping before looking.

URANUS the planet of sudden change, chaos, revolution, in ARIES at 12 degrees was exactly square to his North and South nodes and moving slow. This is a Super karmic aspect. It’s like being hit by lightning. So whether the lightning was a needle or a heart attack will be known soon. Uranus is also Opposite Corey’s natal Saturn in Libra indicating disruptive catalytic energy, a system overload or meltdown.

SATURN having just turned direct on July 8 had been hovering right on Cory’s Jupiter in Scorpio. Saturn is always a fated, karmic, the grim reaper. Sounds like Cory took a gamble and lost.

PLUTO is also in a Square aspect to Cory’s Nodes, again a very  karmic birth and death, life changing pressure. Tis is a choice to unconsciously choose life or death, growth in the physical or transcending into the eternal realms to learn and grow from those planes.

At noon Cory’s Ascendant at 14 degrees Leo is being exactly Squared by the transiting North and South Nodes. This is a fated aspect.

To everyone who knew him they said he was a genuine and sweet man. It greatly saddened many for his life to end so tragically so young. I feel for his girlfriend Lea Michelle as well as his family.
