July 14 Gustav Klimt, GOOGLE chooses THE KISS, Astrology of the artist by Tara Greene

If you read my previous article written July 13-14 early am. I wrote GO FOR THE GOLD in it in reference to the Sunspots and I mentioned APOLLO the Sun god.

Next thing I know as I return to GOOGLE up pops golden artist Artist Gustav Klimt, who is being celebrated in Vienna, on GOOGLE and world wide in honor of his 150th Birthday. Famed for gold leaf paintings, The KISS and portrait of Adele Bloch- Bauer,the most expensive painting ever sold, it was bought by cosmetics magnate Ronald Lauder for $137 Million in 2006.

Klimt was an Austrian painter of beautiful decorative and original styled paintings in an art nouveau style. Klimt was a celebrated artist in his short life in Vienna and Europe. Some of his early works were suppressed as being “pornographic.”  He was a prolifically sexual man, fathering 14 children, having many affairs and never marrying.

His works went out of favour in the post- modern age since the 20’s,being seen as derivative, decorative, commercial art, like Top 40 radio tunes.  

His works have become increasingly popular again with the public and art collectors. I started out as an artist, going to a specialized commercial art high school, Georges Vanier Secondary School in Toronto and then attending and graduating  with honors from the Ontario College of Art And Design majoring in Experimental Arts. I remember seeing the beautiful paintings in major art galleries in the 70’s. At that time I thought them to be too pretty and commercial for my taste.

 GOOGLE is honoring Klimt’s 150th birthday anniversary today July 14 so lets look at his Astrology chart.

Klimt astrology by Tara Greene

The planet NEPTUNE is the ruler of  all ARTS as well as VENUS. Klimt was very sexual, and his works very sensuous. Venus loves beauty. This describes a strong PISCES, LIBRA ruled TAURUS energy and of course  Highly sexual SCORPIO, PLUTO or MARS energy.

I don’t have a birth time for Klimt but have arranged the chart to have  a natural Zero degrees ARIES Ascendant.

NEPTUNE Retrograde is conjunct Super sexy MARS, in this chart, on his Ascendant.

The MOON, feelings, the unconscious, the psychic  dream world, the creative influence is indeed PISCES conjunct wounded healer Chiron. In this chart in the 12th house of karma, the Unconscious.

Klimt had PLUTO, ruler of the soul, sex, power, control, in TAURUS, the most sensual, embodied, priapic place for it to be.  PLUTO in TAURUS  1853-1884- Picasso was also one of them.

KLIMT has VENUS ruler of beauty, art, relationships, love affairs all very strong in Klimt’s life in  GEMINI- the sign of non commitment and the easily bored,conjunct the revolutionary planet Uranus. This explains KLIMT’S unconventional and for its time ribald sexuality during the Victorian era.

Klimt also had a SATURN JUPITER Conjunction in Virgo, sign of the meticulous, detail oriented person. Klimt’s paintings are very painstakingly detailed; the application of gold leaf is very delicate and time-consuming. He claimed he was an artist who worked dawn to dusk every day.

The conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn which occurs every 20 years is a hallmark of a person who is hard-working and successful. In Virgo Klimt was a modest person who never painted self-portraits.

And last but not least KLIMT has the SUN= GOLD in Cancer and Mercury too.  As a Cancerian, Klimt was sentimental, a lover of women, home,close to his mother, loved children,a kind man. I don’t know any real personal details about his life,  relationships or the many children he sired.

The chart points up to that VENUS URANUS conjunction which is  a radically different from society, freedom loving man.

Klimt’s North Node,  at 24 degrees of SAGITTARIUS, close to the GALACTIC CENTER, means he is meant to be a visionary, a philosopher, a pursuer of truth, and higher knowledge.  Klimt’s SOUTH NODE at 24 degrees of GEMINI is conjunct Uranus and also the NORTH STAR, Polaris  indicating he was someone who was destined to be a leader, a shining star; someone who instinctively knew to follow his own inner light.  Somewhat like the Symbol  of the HERMIT in the TAROT. The North and South Nodes square that JUPITER SATURN conjunction. He certainly had good karma to work with.

Interesting SYNCHRONICITY that KLIMT’S Venus @15 degrees GEMINI is smack dead on  the VENUS  SUN conjunction transit June 5-6 2012.

This tells me that Klimt’s ce;ebration on GOOGLE is another SIGN that Sun spots,  and Klimt are all heralding the new GOLDEN AGE, never mind the price of gold in the FOREX markets these days. The WOMAN clothed with the SUN, clearly evident in Klimt’s paintings are popular because they unconsciously embody the GOLDEN GODDESS HERSELF, returning.

So thanks GUSTAV for your beautiful sensuous romantic gift of beauty to the world. Everyone becomes uplifted by seeing them.

Everyone wants to be an artist these days.  With NEPTUNE IN PISCES everyone will become even more soulfully creative..  Art takes a lot of time and work, discipline or an uninhibited childlike nature. As a trained artist and one with the SOUTH NODE in VIRGO I am highly critical and I have to say I see a lot of bad art out there from well intentioned folks who think they can instantly be good artists and that whatever comes out of them is “FINE ART.” I respect the idea of self expression but art needs total dedication for it to work. I also adore RAW art.

I like Tweets,THE ARTIST 2011, First Talking Picture are in synch by Tara Greene Astrology

I love Twitter and Facebook too. I hardly get any sleep anymore. I rarely ever chat. But I like writing and responding. It’s fun. 

Today Sept 10 on Twitter Trending in Toronto,was  THE ARTIST at 2:00 am

Intrigued as what THE ARTIST was, asmy background is as an artist, my husband is an artist, I thought I’d check it out. I checked a Tweet. Sounds like a new hit pop song. THE ARTIST is a new film. TIFF is on right now, The Toronto International Film Festival.   read the review.

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/race/telluride-2011-artist-a-silent-231104

Interesting a 2011 Silent Black and white movie which will be premiering at TIFF today. One of the reviews mentions that it is quite an audacious thing to bring back silent Movies, and that the reviewer felt it was so good that it could be nominated for an Academy Award and there hadn’t been one in 84 years for a silent movie. {There were exceptions Un Chien Andalou, City Lights, Modern Times all early 30’s movies.}  

The very first  Talking Picture The Jazz Singer premiered in 1927 featuring my favourite singer as a child,the great  Al Jolson.

the Jazz Singer Al Jolson

First Talking M0vie Al Jolson 1927

Jolson’s famous line “YOU AIN’T HEARD NOTHIN’ YET” was literally true in the movie. The audience ain’t ever heard actors talking in synch yet till then.

 I absolutely adored Al Jolson as a child and that’s  another whole story. If you want to read a bit about it, and my other encounters with rock stars, read on  http://www.taratarot.com/id35.html

As a practicing Astrologer when the reviewer mentioning “not in 82 years” the BINGO!  went off. I immediately realized there is a synchonicity here.

The Jazz Singer was released in New York on October 6, 1927 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Jazz_Singer_(1927_film)

It’s actually almost exactly 84 years ago and that’s exactly how long the Planet Uranus takes to make one complete revolution, an exact complete circle! See the astrology charts here for you to see and compare.

Uranus entered the first sign of Aries in the spring of 2011. It was at zero degrees Aries as well at the launch of The Jazz Singer.

1927/2011 complete parallel cycles

First Talking Picture

The Artist’s story is similar to the plot lines of a lot of old musicals from the 20’s and 30’s  and Singing In the Rain in the 50’s so it is an homage to that era.  http://tiff.net/filmsandschedules/tiff/2011/theartist

I find it interesting that a new Silent Movie comes out at exactly the same cyclic beginning as Uranus was creating the very first Talking Picture. Uranus BTW rules technology and by extension computers,scientific, medical, outer space, nanotechnology. Talking Pictures ushered in an entirely new entertainment experience in the 20th century. Are we going to go backwards?

Is the New Revolution to simplicity? Yes a lot of people are going for the Slow Revolution in Food, culture, Towns. As earth changes get heavier and stronger Mother Nature may just have The Good Old Days comin’ round again.

Hollywood always has an amazing 6th sense or prophetic ability to see the future. And besides all it would take is one huge Solar Flare to wipe out everyone’s computers,have airplanes fall from the sky, shut down all corporations, banking, communications, etc. You get my Continental Drift here? 

The Vanishing American

The Vanishing American

Speaking of more Silent Movies synchonicities. The other funny coincidence was I was watching TCM late one evening, and I rarely watch TV. Robert Osbourne the host was introducing a black and white SILENT movie made in 1925, a Western,called The Vanishing American. A very unusual Western shot on location in Monument Valley and it depicted the history of man and showed Native Americans not as savages or primitives but  in a positive light. Most of the background cast were real Native Indians except for the lead actor which was also very modern and future oriented.

I found this movie to be phenomenal, rent it or buy it, but do see it. It was so well made, photographed and acted. The costumes were real Hopi Indian silver concho belts and traditonal butterfly hairdos. I was totally awed by it. I cried at the end. I thought now this is a real art, how to move the emotions so much, without needing to say anything. Of course it is a real tear jerker.

I hope in this New Age of constant talk talk talking, that a new cycle bringing back some real peace and quiet, a  SILENT ERA would be a very welcome thing.

I love Native American everything,culture, drumming, prayers, art, ceremonies, mythology, spirituality. I have been practicing and learning Native Traditions, Cherokee,Lakota, Plains, Inka over the last 20 years.

I love the American South West, I loved in Sedona, Arizona in 87-88 and my husband Napoleon and I love the entire South West. He has visited camped out in and painted the South West and we especially love Death Valley California,Utah,New Mexico etc. 

Speaking of Monument Valley. Here’s a picture of my husband Artist Napoleon Brousseau in Monument Valley during an eclipse in March 1997. Speaking of TIFF. People  have often told him that he is a BONO of U2 look-alike. Looks like an outtake of a U2 album cover shoot. What do you think?

Speaking of  in Toronto. You will see Napoleon’s famous landmark Cameron House Hotel Queen Street West Giant Ant sculptures also still adorning the MOCCA by popular demand on the building.

Check out Napoleon’s dazzling amazing Neo-Renaissance  art works at http://www.napob.com/

Deserts

I have also travelled through and lived by deserts in some other parts of the World. The Sahara Desert in West Africa and the Sinai Desert in Egypt and Israel and the desert in Osoyoos British Columbia. Those are other stories.

The moral of the story is: What goes around comes around.
