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.

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.

Inspirational card, 2015, lust or strength

Dec. 9

 

Did you meditate with VENUS on the Galactic Center yesterday? I did.

Cancer moon trines Saturn in the afternoon then goes void of Course at 4:15 pm PST

Moon enters LOUD AND PROUD LEO @ 7:14 pm PST/ 10:14 pm EST-dec 12.

let’s have a card of the day 

STRENGTH #8 

strength Lust Leo Astrology Tara Greene

Cathy McCelland LEO/STRENGTH

This is very synchronous, of course with the Moon in LEO.

The card of LEO or STRENGTH or LUST  in the Tarot symbolizes 2015’s energy.

2 = 0 = 1 = 5 = 8. 

We must learn to listen to our hearts, have courage, be daring, bold, strong, dramatic.

We must learn to stalk out prey like a wild lion would. These wild lions are an endangered species now.

Leo is the sign of Royalty, we can see how crazy the Americans are for Prince William and Kate Middleton. Jupiter now Retrograde is in Leo and will remain there till next September.

We must protect those we love, the children, those who live in our hearts those we feel for.

Leo is instinctual, it is also called LUST. We must feel that passion pulsing in our veins but also ride and control that animal instinct.

It is about inner strength which radiates like the SUN. 

When you are connected to your passion in life you become charismatic, shining, a natural leader a LIGHT..

The symbol is Feminine, although Leo in Astrology is Fire and masculine.

This image shows the Goddess or Feminine with the INFINITY SYMBOL at her solar plexus, connecting her heart and her will. This STRENGTH is in the intuitive feminine instincts connected with egoless self-love. 

Vanity, selfishness, drama, greed, childishness, ME FIRST, entitlement, are all the negative qualities of Leo/Strength. The negative side of LUST is of course, sexual abuse, rape, torture, violence which we are hearing about prevalently in the news these days as it is necessary for the topic to come out of the shadows to be cleared in the LIGHT of the HEART. Patriarch has abused the Goddess, children men and the Feminine for over 5,000 years. The heart has been blocked in Western culture from living from love not the strength of brawn or brain.

We are needing to come into balance now, which is the Infinity symbol.

2015 is the year to follow your Heart and your Bliss. To see beauty within you and all around. To have the strength to defend what we know in our hearts to be true. To defend the feminine, and love, women and the children. The Light of love, trust, beauty will emerge triumphant over the negative egotistical forces of greed and selfishness. LIVE STRONG. BE A CHAMPION.

As a Triple Sagittarius with Jupiter in Aries in my 5th house { naturally Leo} I am looking forwards to getting back in the saddle again. I am planning much travelling, teaching, writing.

LISTEN TO THE LION Van Morrison 

Lust for Life Iggy Pop                    

Bram Stoker, Dracula author, V for Vampires,Venus in Libra

Well all day today Nov. 7 I though about writing about Venus in Libra..because Venus is in Libra now from October 28 – November 21

because I  was born with Venus in Libra so know very well how she operates

and I am thinking about ART because Venus in Libra rules artists! and I notice that my article on Artist Salvador Dali is always popular,

I also want to write about Frida Kahlo one of my favourite artists whose show is on now in Toronto at the Art Gallery of Ontario,

and my husband, artist Napoleon Brousseau is getting ready to have a new art show opening in a few days.

FIXED STAR REGULUS

I was also noting the Moon crossing Fixed Star Regulus NOW at ZERO degrees VIRGO

the Traditional Fixed Star of Royalty of KINGS and Queens left LEO after a 2,000 year stay and entered Virgo earlier this year in Western Tropical astrology for another 2,000 plus year stay! No small matter. A Fixed Star changing signs is HUGE!

which also very powerfully indicates to me the rise of the FEMININE as Virgo is a Feminine EARTH sign.

So our Leaders should be more DOWN to EARTH, practical, less Regal and above the crowd.

also note Prince William marrying a commoner who could one day be Queen.

Then I saw Bram Stoker, Dracula author being honored on Google search engine home page on the 165th Anniversary of his birth  today Nov. 8

Then I  decided to quickly check into the Vampire author’s astrology chart.

Yes yes I know all you Twilight fans are getting ready for the last and hopefully final installment of the modern take on Dracula/Vampires re-written by Stephanie Meyer.

Bram Stoker Dracula authorclick on chart to view larger

I used midnight birth time for Bram Stoker, more Vampire  like.

Bram was born in Dublin, an ancient city known for its many a famous Irish Bards like James Joyce of Ulysses fame. U2 as well.

I had  a U2 song suddenly start playing in my head earlier in the evening, You know how these things work don’t you?

Stoker born with the Sun at exactly 15 degrees of Scorpio where it is the strongest. He was  also born on a NEW MOON, a dark moon,a scary Moon. As a Scorpio, a double Scorpio- with Sun and Moon conjunct he would naturally be attracted to the SCORPIO Dark  Side with all things forbidden, taboo, sex, death, power, lust, transformation.

The Gothic horror novel of which he wrote a few was originally published in 1897.

I was wondering why I was off topic from my intention when I saw that Bram also has VENUS in LIBRA.LOL. Well You gotta trust the Universe.

Venus is at 5 degrees Libra. Stoker also has the North Node at 9 degrees Libra conjunct Lillith at 12 degree. Lillith was known as a succubus, night hag, a monster who drank men’s semen in nocturnal dreams, who was blamed by the Patriarchy for doing her own thing, for being independent, for thinking for herself, for basically disobeying G*d. Perhaps Lillith was Stoker’s original idea for Dracula?

With the Midnight hour birth time what degree is Ascending?

Zero degrees of Virgo, which I thought about earlier today..Hmmm

The midnight chart puts Stoker’s SCORPIO Sun Moon exactly at the Bottom, on the IC, the Midnight of the chart itself.

Uranus right now is exactly opposing Stoker’s birth Venus.

So perhaps a Uranian surprise honor or a tie in to modern Twilight publicity.

The first film version of Dracula to make a big impression was the 1922 German Expressionist Horror film classic Nosferatu: a Symphony of Horror directed by F.W. Murnau. Names had to be changed from Dracula as the right to the original novel could not be obtained.

Vampire Max Schreckthe original film VAMPIRE 1922

Played by Actor Max Schreck, pictured above from the film DRACULA there is also name destiny here. Something I firmly believe in.

The word Schreck is Yiddish, which is actually 15th Century German for FEAR or fright.

The name was also used as a title for the children’s book modernized as Shrek  published  in 1990 by William Steig  about a young  ogre who finds the ogre of his dreams when he leaves home to see the world. The book served as the basis for the popular Shrek film series over a decade after its publication.

I will get down to Art and venus in Libra next installment

SYRIA, Astrology, revolution predictions by Tara Greene

I’ve wanted to write about Syria’s chart and President Assad for months now. The rebels who have been valiantly fighting for 17 months have dealt a major blow to dictator Assad’s regime since July 18 when an explosion killed four members of Assad’s inner circle inside a security headquarters in Damascus, a blow that wiped out much of the top echelon of his military command structure and shattered the reputation for invulnerability that his family has held since his father seized power in a coup in 1970. The reports came in at 7:13 pm EDT via Reuters on that day. Since then fighting has expanded to another city  Aleppo. The rebels have taken the Bab al-Salam border crossing with Turkey on Sunday.

Lets look at SYRIA’s chart for when Assad took over. I will speak about Assad and the country interchangeably.

SYria Astrology Assad,Tara Greene

 click on chart to view larger

The Astrology chart of the takeover of the Assad family is set for November 13 1970 at 6:15 am Damascus.

The Assad Syria is a SCORPIO SUN  nation,meaning a country ruled by power, control, secrets, obsession, death, sadism, masochism,all the heavy dark stuff.

The Assad Syria is a triple Scorpio threat energy with Jupiter at 17 degrees of Scorpio amplifying the Scorpionic Sun obsessive energy and Venus Retrograde at 15 degrees Scorpio. The Ascendant is also Scorpio which really makes this what’s called a Stellium in my books. A stellium is a 3-4 planets, or angles all in the same Sign. They are especially very tightly bound together within 6 degrees.

The Sun is on the Ascendant , the face Syria shows to the world, a death mask. The Arabs were master astrologers. I believe this chart was chosen for the power of the Sun rising with Jupiter.  Although Jupiter is combust or toasted by the SUN’s rays which weakens its’ effect. That’s a good thing, as bad as the situation is. This puts Jupiter and Venus in the 12th house of secrets, hidden enemies, prisons, karma and SELF-UNDOING/ self- sabotage. This regime was never meant to last.

The chart has very simple energy but the planet in SYRIA’s chart have very difficult aspects.

The MOON, representing the people, the emotions, moods, temperament and the unconscious, mothering, is in TAURUS  in the 6th house of work, and servitude, conjunct to Saturn RETROgrade at 19 degrees. You have to see the chart of a country as a person, writ large.

Saturn conjunct the moon 

The MOON is the people and Assad sees them totally as his servants. Assad thinks/feels that it is his patriarchal right and authority -{SATURN} to lord it over them. Did I mention the TAURUS famous stubbornness? Assad will not back down.  Assad/the moon is someone who does not express emotions, cold, restricted, cut off, doing his duty, all business, no heart. This shows Assad as a wounded, un-nurtured, women hating man himself.

MARS- the drive, action, defenses, warrior energy of Assad/Syria is at 15 degrees of Libra conjunct Uranus at 11 degrees both in the 11th house representing wishes hopes dreams, organizing, groups. This is interesting because it represents a totalitarian takeover, a revolution, unexpected violence. The negative way would be military might used for crushing freedom. The positive way is rebel forces for freedom always fighting against the military.The energy is shifting.

Mercury- thinking and communications, the unconsciousness of Syria is conjunct Neptune at ZERO degrees of Sagittarius in the 1st house.

 The 1st house is self-identity. Neptune conjunct Mercury is illusions in the media. MISinformation.Delusions, addictions. Neptune rules actors,  glamour, false prophets. Assad thinks he’s a real visionary.

Pluto the planet which represents  the Soul, the unconscious, the driving force is at 29 degrees of Virgo. Any planet or point in a chart at the 29th and last degree represents the sum, the max of that signs’ energy. SYRIA, ASSAD is an OCD I bet. A perfectionist who is totally insecure and tries to control everything around him.

The North Node or highest evolutionary point is at 29 degrees of AQUARIUS, again the last “critical” degree. It is exactly conjunct the Root chakra or IC, the grounding of the country’s chart.  It’s roots are in the future. SYRIA is meant to evolve into revolution, freedom, liberation, higher group consciousness,  new technology. Isnt that fascinating?  ALso interesting is that it’s very close to one of the 4 major ROYAL STARS of PERSIA, close to FOMALHAUT the Star  representing the ARCHANGEL GABRIEL close by at 3 degrees of PISCES.

The archangel Gabriel blows the trumpet on JUDGEMENT DAY

The SOUTH NODE which symbolize the forces of the past is at 29 degrees of LEO!

July 22 It’s LEO time,Royal astrology, spiritual predictions from Tara Greene

JULY 22 IT’S LEO TIME!  Time to roar, Let’s all be King’s and Queen’s for a month from July 22- Aug 22

 Leaving the need for security and comfort behind in emotional Cancer it’s now time to fire up and be pussycats or tomcats.

THE SUN rules the sign of LEO, so people born in this sign truly have SOLAR POWER burning through their veins.

In Ancient Egypt a Lion Headed Goddess, Sekhmet was worshipped, The Sphinx has the body of a Lion The height of the Ancient Egyptian age was ruled by the constellation LEO.

Egyptian Goddess Sekhmet Leo Astrology

Wherever you have the sign Leo somewhere in your natal chart, each sign exists in each astrology chart  is where you are charismatic, feel that you are the Source and  center of the Universe. The Lion is on the emblem of the coat of Arms of England. The great Hindu Goddess Durga rides a tiger. WHich is also a lionlike animal.

Leo Astrology Durga Tara Greene

DURGA HINDU GODDESS who stopped all wars rides a Tiger

Leo is where you are a  natural ruler. Can be self-centered, egotistic,overbearing,  bullies when unconscious.

LEO the 5th sign, the 2nd fire sign is  a fixed sign.  a T- shirt would be

I’m a LEO and you know it. 

The big honcho, the boss, the leader,you are the SUN KING or SUN QUEEN.  King Midas. Everything he touched turned to gold.

You are the gold, have the gold, You don’t need to win gold medals at the Olympics, you know you’ve got it. That’s STAR POWER.

Leo is  also the sign of the CHILD, therefore it is innocent at heart. Deep down Leo’s feel like little  kids playing dress up and as Shakespeare said, all the worlds’ a stage. we are all role playing. BE conscious and careful of which roles you choose, Victim, victor? You are the star of your own movie, You are the director- Fellini, Hitchcock, James Cameron, Spielberg? which one are you? and all the actors in your drama.

We were all once children, we all have inner children whose needs we need to honor and attend to all our lives. “Be like a little child” was one of Jesus’s famous sayings. which means stay innocent,stay trusting.  All children are egocentric, Leo is the sign of ego, self, me, watch me shine. So LEo is also the sign of performers, actors, people who need to be on stage, need a lot of attention, fame, gold, glitter to manifest themselves.

the 5th sign, like the 5th  element in a way, is the house of LOVE AFFAIRS. Everyone wants/needs/craves that. If you have the Sun moon or other planets in LEO and or in the 5th house you will be focused on attracting and experiencing many affairs.It does depend on which planet it is of course. 

So if you havent been allowing your self to shine or to play lately then definitely take courage, be daring, show off a bit.

Be conscious of the roles you do choose to play. EVeryone feels they want to be famous, a king or queen, these days. A friend of mine asked me yesterday why that was. It started with the PLUTO in LEO generation, the baby Boomers who set the stage, with me, me, me. From 1940- 1957 this generation saw the rock stars, the leader of the music and  cultural counter-culture born. Bob Dylan, the Beatles  etc.

Now that energy which was seeded back then went up a notch and morphed into the opposite sign of Aquarius which is the sign of  freedom, revolutions, technology, inventions, the group mind which birthed the Internet when Uranus ruler of Aquarius entered that sign in 1995- 2003  then further amped up by Neptune who rules Glamour, Hollywood, illusions, delusions,  Aquarius from 1998 – April 2011.

So what i s real and what is an illusion? These days with Photosho, reality is just an illusion.

The only known reality is in your HEART, and that is the true nature of LEO, the heart.

Here’s a RUMI poem, he wrote lots of poems about Lion’s, the heart etc.

    The time has come to turn your heart
into a temple of fire.
Your essence is gold hidden in dust.
To reveal its splendor
you need to burn in the fire of love.
