Remembering John Lennon, gun violence in America

December 8th is the anniversary of John Lennon’s murder.  Shortly before 11 p.m. on December 8th, 1980 25-year-old Mark David Chapman fired five shots from a .38 caliber revolver into John Lennon’s back. 

This was a defining event for anyone who was a Beatles fan. I remember I was at home when I heard and I was in disbelief and in shock. Do you remember where you were when you heard that terrible news today, oh boy? 

John Lennon, leader of The Beatles, one of my teenage idols, because of who he was, an extremely unusual, intelligent person a strong individual. He did prophesy his own death. His songs will inspire future generations, especially Imagine, one of the greatest songs ever written. John would have been 75 years old on Oct 9, 2015.

 

John was a number 6 personality and Soul number. The #6 is THE LOVERS in the Tarot. The centre of the Tree of  Life, Tifferet, Beauty. Also GEMINI energy, the twins, communications, the mind.

Let’s look at John Lennon’s birth chart at birth and at his death

JOhn Lennon birth and death charts

John Lennon, a Libra, sign of relationships, harmony, balance, and partnerships, was born just after sunset during an air raid on Liverpool during the Second World war. Creative types have strong Venus and Neptune planets. Lennon has Venus at 3 degrees of Virgo, in the 6th house of work, service, analysis, perfectionism, criticism and humility.

 John’s Venus is quincunx the MOON in Aquarius which is the highest elevated “planet” in his chart. He is governed by his emotions, his mother and his relationship with her and his radical instincts to be a revolutionary person breaking free from the past.

Lennon’s Aquarian MOON  is a highly intelligent strongly individualized detached feeling tones person. His Revolutionary moon indicates his worldly status and position.

Lennon’s Moon is opposite CHIRON the WOUNDED HEALER at 0 Leo sign of leaders, actors, “royalty” important wealthy people, who are courageous Lionhearted and who dont’ suffer fools gladly.   Chiron is square to CERES the Great Mother at 1 degree Scorpio, sign of death, the underworld, the shadows, psychology, paranoia, control, secrets, and power. Ceres in his 7th house of marriage and all “others.” This T-square to his natal moon indicates the cool detached image Lennon projected to protect himself. 

Moon/Venus in a difficult aspect indicates the great love for and deep loss of his Mother- killed in a car accident when he was 17 years old. She was too young and immature to raise him herself so he was brought up by his Mother’s sister, his Aunt Mimmie. Maternal Aunts are indicated by the 6th house and Lennon has a packed large 6th house.

Neptune at 26 degrees Virgo in the 6th house is square to the Galactic Center. He was a true metaphysician and visionary.

Mars was conjunct Neptune in Libra, he was driven, sparked, fired up through his creativity. All artists & musicians channel through Neptune planet of SPIRIT. This is the mark of the visionary.

Mars in Libra is focused on “others”and has difficulty making decisions, Mars in Libra is vulnerable, sensitive in the Venus ruled sign, a peaceful warrior. Mars rules Lennon’s hot headed -ram butting acerbic tongued ARIES Ascendant. He appeared tough, masculine, strong-willed, defensive, independent with a big temper. Lennon’s famous vulnerable songs like HELP! I Need somebody, Hey you got to hide your love away.  etc. illustrate this.

URANUS the revolution planet,planet of individuals, freedom, group mind, the Aquarian age, an Air sign is Trine to his Neptune at 25 degrees Retrograde in earthy sensual creative Taurus. Lennon was bullish on revolution and freedom in his creativity, for sure.

Lennon was born with a positive Jupiter Saturn conjunction in Taurus, both Retrograde, opposite his Mercury in Scorpio. This is where Lennon’s famed quick-witted, sarcasm comes from. Mars also ruled his fork tongued Mercury.

Mercury in Scorpio also gave Lennon’s song lyrics great depth. He had the ability to see right through people so could spot a phony a mile away.

Lennon had Chiron at zero degrees Leo conjunct Pluto in the 4th house of roots, childhood, mother, home, family, privacy. He was a world soul healer deep-down. Pluto rules the collective unconsciousness as well as the personal Soul drives. Wounded  by his early abandonment by his father, and a mother who wasn’t really there for him, Lennon needed Leo fame and adulation to cover up those very raw wounds he felt at his core. He did primal therapy to help heal those wounds as an adult.

The Leo need to shine like the SUN in the world,was a very powerful drive. 

The Sun in Libra on the cusp of the 7th house of relationships rules his Pluto in Leo. Through creative collaborations his songwriting talents with Paul McCartney are legend of course. Here Lennon would find some balance, some peace and connect with all “others.”

Lennon’s chart shows a Grand Trine between the Moon,Uranus in Taurus and the North Node in Libra- it’s very wide and out of sign. this gives Lennon’s signature as a revolutionary man who would make a huge mark on the world as an artist and peacemaker. 

Mainly there is a FIXED Grand CROSS in his chart making Lennon a  very intense person.

His 10th house MC of world fame is Capricorn. It’s real, ambitious, required patience, he started singing publicly at 16. Lennon was a leader, a bit more mature. Capricorn is the sign of worldly fame and fortune.

 So a short light look at the man who was John Lennon. Whose fame will live on always because music is the food of love and Lennon’s song IMAGINE is one of the rarest and greatest songs ever written.

I do believe he was a very enlightened,  although flawed human personality. I could believe that he was like a modern day Jesus. His life was very much the same. He spoke incredible truth. Loved by millions, he influenced a cultural change which just now is finding its true feet.

Can you IMAGINE a world WITHOUT John Lennon in it?

Transits at John’s death. 

On December 8 1980,Chiron the Wounded healer was directly on his Natal Jupiter Saturn in Taurus conjunction, Chiron was squaring the transiting North Node at 12 degrees Leo which was squaring John’s Natal Mercury.

Jupiter and Saturn were once again in conjunction in Libra conjunct to Johns Natal North Node in his 6th house of work. Jupiter and Saturn meet every 20 years and they were also both squaring John’s Mid-Heaven at 7 degrees of Capricorn which also had Mars at 12 degrees Capricron as the highest planet in his 10th house of worldly fame. This is a very karmic description of a famous violent death, involving his work.  

Pluto in LIbra at 23 degrees had just crossed into John’s 7th house of relationships where it was only 7 degrees away from John’s Natal Sun. Pluto was in a hard inconjunct aspect to John’s natal Uranus at 25 degrees Taurus in his first house of self-identity. John had been told by a psychic years before it happened, that he would be murdered in New York City. Either he didn’t believe her or her chose stubbornly to defy that prediction. 

Bless you John Lennon and thanks for the music and the inspiration, I join you in the dream of Peace.

What did John Lennon mean to you?

P.S. I was a huge Beatles fan as a teenager. My daughter Leah was raised on only Beatles or classical music. I remember driving in the car and turning around to see her at 6 sitting in her car seat singing along to “Say you want a revolution, well you know… we’d all love to see the plans.”

Jimmy Fallon, The Tonight Show Astrology by Tara Greene

An historic new incarnation of the Tonight SHow begins Feb 17 2014 PST/Feb 18 at midnight EST as Jimmy Fallon takes over as the latest host of the long running late night TV show. 

Jimmy Fallon Astrology tara Greene

Interestingly the Tonight Show on NBC is turning 60 years old this year.

On September 27 1954 it began with Steve Allen as the host. Then Jack Paar, then the longest running JOHNNY CARSON for 30 seasons,then Jay Leno  1992- 2009,Conan O’ Brien’s short stint of 6 months then back to Jay who just retired Feb 6 2014 after 22 years.

Jimmy Fallon ushers in a new era as host of the  Tonight Show back in New York City from California since 1972. Jimmy is not the youngest host. But I think that fact that his name begins with a J seems to fit the host role best.  I find it really strange that Jimmy Fallon’s side man Steve Higgins looks exactly like the original host STEVE ALLEN as id he came backto be part of the show somehow.

Jimmy came to stardom via SNL from 1998-2004 where he co-hosted the news with Tina Fey. He started the Late Night show March 2, 2009 till a few weeks ago.

A charming, boyishly handsome triple threat,  Jimmy does comedy,sings and plays guitar and acts. Jimmy is up to the minute tech savvy, Twitter hashtag user, a musical parodist who laughs heartily at his own jokes. 

OK so lets see who JIMMY FALLON is from his Astrology chart.

Born September 19 1974 in Brooklyn New York.I have no accurate birth time so use NOON for a public celebrity.   

Jimmy Fallon Tonight Show Astrology Tara Greene

JIMMY is Surprise! a VIRGO.

A practical, hard-working perfectionist, analytical, sharp minded, loves to serve people, quite humble. Jimmy also has VENUS, how he wants to be loved, what he loves, also in VIRGO. Jimmy wants you to love him for his work and his smarts.

I would rectify his time of birth, as his Ascendant is much lighter, open, fun, versatile much more Gemini like, the boyish charm, love of communicating. He always wanted to be a Late night broadcaster.

Jimmy also has MARS CONJUNCT PLUTO in LIBRA. Wow now that’s one helluva combo. Mars and Pluto both rule Scorpio. Mars also rules Aries and he has no Aries planets in his birth chart. He does have Chiron the Wounded healer in Aries.

Jimmy has CHARISMA. Single-minded focus, passion, drive, he can totally manifest whatever it is he deeply desires and now he has, at 39 years of age, secured one of the top most prominent positions in all of American TV.

MARS conjunct Pluto in LIBRA give him an incredible charm that the Collective Unconscious can relate to. Libra is the most social of all the signs. Jimmy  has the charm in excess, it is in valuable, in exhaustible, that is why he appears so light. His  Libra soul, Pluto,  wants everyone to think they are NICE. He is a superlatively nice guy.

How does Jimmy think? He has Mercury, planet of communications, conjunct URANUS sign of new technology, thinking outside the box, wild and crazy, free thinking, inventive, pioneering. In LIBRA Jimmy is a breath of fresh air, opening up new windows in the mind. His approach is revolutionary and just what the TONIGHT SHOW needs. Jimmy plays games with his guests, does whacky musical political commentaries.

His MOON – his instincts, his emotions, his feelings are in SCORPIO. You can see it in his intense dark brown widely spaced eyes. There is a deep souled person in there.We see Jimmy’s powerful 4 planet in Libra combo but underneath he is shrewd, sharp, notices details, focussed on accomplishing his goals. He wants power and he charms us so much we are happy to give it to him. He is an intense person and very private about his personal life. Not too many people ever see his dark side. 

Jimmy has Saturn in Cancer very close to the United States Sun at 17 degrees. He is a sentimental, very close to his Mom and Dad, his family, his roots, He brought the Tonight Show back to his  home town, New York. He is an emotional, affectionate, old-fashioned kinda guy. He is married and with one new child,who I am sure he dotes on. He mothers and nurtures others. He is kind-hearted and probably has some issues with a sensitive stomach. His home is his security and he needs to be loved.

Jimmy has JUPITER RETROGRADE, his only Retrograde planet in Pisces. Jupiter is the Ancient Ruler of Pisces and as such is always a Guardian Angel for anyone lucky enough to be born with this  placement. Jupiter in Pisces blesses Jimmy with  great artistic vision and imagination. Jupiter rules humor, and Jupiter expands the types of humor and creative capabilities.   Jimmy is a natural optimist, compassionate, kind-hearted, honest, a dreamer. He is a natural chameleon and his comedic and musical talents for doing celebrity impersonations of Bob Dylan or Neil Young or Barry Gibb are legend. Everyone can relate to his humor and that is why he has been so successful. Jimmy is a natural philanthropist, so I am sure he already donates or will set up charities, schools, camps to help other youngsters get ahead. Neptune is the modern ruler of Pisces. He is a very spiritual person.

Jimmy has Jupiter Retrograde opposite Venus, which means he has come back in this life to finish off some karma with women, especially with his wife but all women he has worked with on SNL.

Jimmy has NEPTUNE in Sagittarius. The other sign Jupiter rules. So the two planets are in mutual reception. All planets in mutual reception makes them extra powerful, working and enhancing each other. In Jimmy’s case this is a super positive, super beneficial, extra bouncy, happy good-humored blessing for him. He IS the good Humor man. Neptune rules film, photography, by extension visual media.

Jimmy’s North Node is at 13 degrees of Sagittarius which is right on the United States Ascendant at 12 degrees Sagittarius. Well, America and Jimmy are on the same trajectory. The South Node not shown in this chart is at 13 degrees Gemini. A Gemini South Node indicates a past as a gatherer of information, a curious minded, wanderer, a Fool, or minstrel, a kind of Parsival type of figure. He makes his work seem totally fun and effortless that’s how much of a pro he is.

In this life, the Sagittarius North Node is about teaching, leading people to the truth, humor, expansion of knowledge, International inspiration. He makes us laugh about our culture, in an easy casual way. Laugh at our foibles, our history, our honesty/dishonesty. Above all he aims to inspire us. He is quick-witted, passionate, unwaveringly curious. Jimmy is a philosopher wondering why we are all here and inspiring us to laugh and see the higher picture. He is cleverly disguised as a comedian. The best medicine there is, is laughter.

DIVINE TIMING TRANSITS

The timing is perfect in Jimmy’s chart. I predict the Nielsen ratings will go through the roof. He will have a long productive run, as Jupiter is crossing his Natal Saturn. Chiron is conjunct to his Natal Jupiter opposite his natal Venus in Virgo, he has found his Holy Grail. He will also cure the ills of a nation whose Economic woes {Virgo} aren’t very funny right now. Jimmy will distract us from what really aches us. Jimmy’s Neptune is also getting very close to Square his Natal Neptune. This is a dream come true for him. He needs to be careful of his health, any alcohol or drugs, even Prescription meds now.  I believe Jimmy’s Moon must be later in Scorpio and that Saturn is crossing his Moon now. Saturn conjunct the Moon would indicate a huge responsibility, a maturity, a taking on of the mantle of power.  That would also give Jimmy a Gemini Ascendant as I mentioned.

OK Enough.

My Dad used to watch The Tonight Show when Steve Allen was the original host. So I have known about it all my life. When I was a kid, my dad always told jokes. I nicknamed him my funny Daddy and I adored him for that. My secret wish was always wished to be a comedian as I feel it is really the best career one could have.  I’ll be watching you tonight. You also have one of my fave rock groups U2 on as well. Love ya Jimmy. Wish I could be on you show one day and meet you.

Sending you and your family the best Blessings Jimmy.

Ed Sheeran Astrology chart from Tara Greene, Toronto

January 14, 2013

My daughter Leah, 15 and I love music, pop music and classical music. She listened to classical music only till she was about 5 when she started to learn to play the piano.  But she also listened to the Beatles at that time as I was a huge Beatles fan. She turned me on to 22-year-old British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran’s music for over a year now. She has learned to play very interesting melodious versions of his hit songs on the electric piano.

Ed has come from relative obscurity here in North America with his first hit being the A team, Give Me love and Lego House, with Harry Potter star Rupert Grint playing Ed in the music video. He is currently on tour with Taylor Swift, the American country music cross over singer. He was nominated for a Grammy and sang with Sir Elton John on the broadcast, he is now mainstream in his popularity.

The flaming red-haired, bed head tattooed singer was formerly homeless. He is a high school dropout and has been recording and producing his own songs since he was 14. He seems to be the most down to earth unpretentious person you would want to meet, with a sweet voice, and an amazing range of song styles, he writes very beautiful lyrics and plays in a very simple folk singer style on a 3/4 size beat-up guitar.

He is in TORONTO for two days of concerts on June 14 & 15. 

I am really enthralled with his music. I play it for adults who wouldn’t normally be exposed to it and they all love it too.

I feel Ed is the perfect example of the New Masculine, he is definitely masculine but with a very sensitive, emotional, tender heart-felt empathetic side. His Feminine side is very well-developed so he is balanced.  So let’s check out his Astrology chart.

Ed SHEERAN ASTROLOGY CHART

Click on chart to view larger

ED SHEERAN is an AQUARIAN born February 17, 1991, in Halifax, Great Britain. I have no birth time so use Noon for a public celebrity. 

His Sun at 28 degrees Aquarius shows an unconventional,  strong individual, independent, stubborn, a natural leader, but not an egotistical one, with high-minded ideals, a natural rebel he follows his own style. He is very bright, intellectual, analytical, a vessel of higher consciousness. Likes new technology, building structures, feels like he is part of the world tribe. 

The Moon representing his mother, who he is very close to, was in early ARIES at noon. But it could also have been in late Pisces is he has been born after midnight. The Moon is super important as it is the emotions, the unconscious, the feelings, instincts. I feel that he was born in the night and his Moon is in Pisces. It is the Moon at its most sensitive, intuitive, creative, spiritual, dreamy, and he has songs about drinking and Pisces is the sign of addictions. I’m not saying he is an alcoholic I’m just saying he is very sensitive and predisposed to having addictive types of behaviours, and he loves cats, very feminine felines. 

Mercury is in Aquarius so apply his communications style, thinking and reasoning and to his Aquarian self-expression. 

VENUS is in PISCES at 23 degrees this could also be where most of his creativity as a singer-songwriter comes from and his very Feminine energy. Pisces is the most spiritual sign and rules all creative pursuits. Venus in Pisces people are largely reclusive and usually prefer to be anywhere but on the world’s stage. Spiritual, sensitive, imaginative, the Give Me love video shows a woman transformed into a CUPID angel. He is so emotive, an empath. I have to mention my fave song of Ed’s is SMALL BUMP, where he totally understands the feminine point of view.

Mars is in GEMINI so he is a fast thinker, talker, He raps very quickly. He is diverse in his styles, he is upbeat,  childlike, he loves to talk and communicate. I am sure he can be indecisive. This gives him charm galore, he is a pixie, with an impish grin.

JUPITER is RETROGRADE in LEO at 4 degrees

So this is why Ed is a performer, a strong fiery, passionate leader, this part of him expands on stage and in public, but he is also shy, and UN-egotistical. He has a big heart, which he wears on his sleeve. He loves children, is an actor playing roles. He loves cats- Leo the Lion. He loves to travel and learn through experience. Jupiter is opposite Saturn indicating he is nicely balanced, he works hard and plays hard.

SATURN represents the father, structure, karma. Saturn is at 1 degree Aquarius which it traditionally rules along with Uranus as a modern ruler. This makes Ed a serious rebel. One whose task it is to raise people’s awareness. He will not be labelled. 

URANUS at 12 degrees Capricorn is conjunct NEPTUNE at 15 and this is a generational configuration.

Everyone born in the early 1990s has this aspect. It symbolizes revolutionizing big business, yet being part of it or at least understanding how it works but getting it to serve the collective and more spiritual goals. Ed has CHIRON the wounded healer opposite Neptune which is a transpersonal placement. He is a world server and a healer. Chiron in Cancer symbolizes a wounded child who is insecure, about home, safety, rejected by his parents. 

PLUTO is at 20 degrees SCORPIO

and square to his SUN. Ed’s chart is very simple with not very many difficult aspects. Although this one is. Pluto is the Soul the Unconscious, the shadow, power, control, secrets. He is very much acting from his soul’s urgings. IN SCORPIO this is the MOST EMOTIONALLY INTENSE and SOULFUL as Pluto is the Modern ruler of the 8th sign of sex, power, money, etc. Life is not easy with this aspect especially when unconscious. But he seems to be very strong and aware and this deep soulful aspect permeates his vitality and life force, the Sun.

Ed’s North Node is in Capricorn at 27 degrees, he is ambitious for worldly fame. he is a very hard worker, patient, persistent, focussed, practical, he is goal-oriented. Capricorn North Node’s don’t usually get their fame until they are older and wiser as Saturn the planet rules it and he is all about maturity. But he is an old soul already. 

HIs SOUTH NODE is in CANCER directly opposite, not shown in the chart. this symbolizes past lives, unconscious memories. He must have been a woman in a past life, a mother, a nurturer, very tender, sensitive, compassionate and he has carried this over.  He needs to find fulfillment in his career.

Ed has a lovely GRAND TRINE the blue triangle in his chart between Chiron in Cancer, Pluto in Scorpio and Venus in Pisces. This makes the planet’s energy blend together harmoniously. A sweet sensitive creative yet soulful power of caring.

Ed’s career started to break out with NEPTUNE Crossing his Sun about 2 years ago. 

The North Node just crossed his Pluto within the last 6 months making anyone a favourite at that time.

URANUS AND PLUTO are squaring and conjunct his natal Uranus now with NEPTUNE INVOLVED AS WELL.

Again millions of young people are undergoing this very same aspect. It is a world-changing, revolutionizing aspect. When one becomes famous for their soul talents they embody the direction of all the people in that age group. As the Beatles did in the 60;s or Elvis did in the ’50s. If you are born in this age group and need help figuring it out, I am here to advise you.

Saturn will conjunct his Pluto in 2014 and that will bring major rewards. He will be lauded and taken seriously. success is sometimes difficult to manage. This will be a testing time for him. Can be some temptations there.

So Ed’s greatest world-shifting is happening now and for the next 2 years. Not that it will be over then, he is very talented. 2015 will also be his best year in 12 when Jupiter conjuncts his natal Jupiter then.

I think he is super talented for such a young man.  If you haven’t heard his music check it out. He has a number of albums out.
