Venus Trine Jupiter Royal Love and Truth

VENUS TRINES JUPITER @ 14+ Leo and 14+ SAGITTARIUS  with Jupiter conjunct to the GREAT ATTRACTOR

That’s super hot LIONESS  love, proud, passionate, with spiritual, adventurous, exotic, a big expansive learning curve.

VENUS, the Goddess of love beauty money values the arts and Jupiter the Great benefactor expander, good luck maker, risk-taker and the #10 the Wheel of Fortune in the Tarot,  rules Taurus and Libra. This aspect benefits them. 

Jupiter the King of the Gods governs Sagittarius and Pisces. Neptune is the modern ruler of Pisces and the higher octave of Venus. Jupiter and Neptune are still in their Square dance all of 2019.

This is a beautifully romantic, idealistic, gotta love those fire signs of Leo and Sagittarius. It’s all is interlocked perfectly.

This is like being given the Golden Key to your Heart to open all doors of positive energy.

EXCEPT that JUPITER is still RETROGRADE almost standstill. BUT you only have to wait for a few days for Jupiter to go Direct August 11.

JUPITER on the GREAT ATTRACTOR Amps up the ability to ATTRACT THE LOVE AND LUCK AND ADVENTURE AND TRUTH

The Great Attractor according to Philip Sedgewick  {Abel 3627}

Tropical Longitude:14 Sagittarius 02 22 (epoch 2000.0)
Latitude: 38 S 54
Sidereal Longitude: 19 Scorpio 18 11
Right Ascension: 243 53 12
Declination: 64 S 55

THIS IS ALSO on the 8/8 LION’s GATE spiritual Sun alignment with Sirius the Dog Star considered to be a coded gateway as Venus aligns with this star’s heliacal rising before the SUN. Sirius the largest and most beautiful star in the sky was worshipped in ancient Egypt and the U.S. Sun is fated at the Star’s degree of 12+  CANCER. That’s why the Declaration of Independence was made for July 4th.

The SUN was on the 15th degree of Leo yesterday and Venus is there today. This degree marked the cross-quarter FIXED SIGNS of the Archangel RAPHAEL.

Public Domain Mark

15 LEO was the ancient marker for Archangel Raphael, the one who rules the heart chakra. This further amps up the heart healing capabilities on this day. Send out healing love prayers to the planet. Use dark green stones, emerald is especially connected with Raphael. 

This is also where the Fixed STAR Regulus, the heart of the LION was about 1,100 years ago. Now Regulus is sitting at ZERO degrees VIRGO.

TRINES are good but you have to make them work.

The danger is in being over the top too overindulgent, naïve, over the top. Jupiter expands your philosophy, your truth, metaphysics, psychic energy, get a big learning curve, plan a long-distance trip, fall in love with an exotic stranger, publishing, teaching, animal rights, political activism, justice, easy-going, klutzy, too honest, naive, sports, all of these SAGITTARIUS things. 

Make a specific offering to Venus with Copper pennies and green or blue candles.

JUPITER as Great Benefactor needs to be invoked.  Zeus/Jove/Jupiter

Jupiter likes to be treated with respect. Be humble or funny, and over the top. Get ready to throw some lightning bolts.

Build your dreams; Lilith and Virgin Full Moon

March is another BLUE MOON MONTH! Having two Blue Moon months in one year is a very rare celestial occasion and won’t happen again until 2037. So get with the Blue now.

The first Full Moon on the1st/2nd is in the earth sign VIRGO @ 4:51 pm PST/ 7:51 pm EST/ March 2 @ 12:51 am GMT.

Virgo Astrology Tara Greene

restorationist, Adam Cuerden

Known as the WORM Moon by Algonquin indigenous tribes or the CROW or Sap Moon. Indigenous peoples lived by Lunar cycles and named moons for the seasonal changes and their observations of mother nature. Other names are MAGPIE MOON- STORM MOON- CRUST MOON- SUGARING MOON and MOON of the WINDS  

The Worm is a very important animal as it makes the earth rich for growing crops. As the earth softens prepping for Spring worms come out of the ground in spring rains and the Robins the harbingers of Spring love to get those worms. 

The CROW or MAGPIE caws loudly heralding Springs return. Crow’s are one the most intelligent birds. They can make tools that are more sophisticated than a monkey can. Crow’s feature large as Magical birds and bringers of Karma/Dharma in the medicine wheel teachings I learned.

The early bird gets the worm- remember that- a very Virgo motto.

That fits this VIRGO heavily weights PISCES Moon’s nature perfectly to me.

The Moon is opposed by JUNO in early PISCES the SUN NEPTUNE and MERCURY VENUS and CHIRON conjunct further  in PISCES.

BLACK MOON LILITH @ 12 degrees CAPRICORN trining the VIRGO Moon and conjunct to SATURN opposite The U.S. SUN and SIRIUS

LILITH also sextiles the SUN and NEPTUNE’s mid-point exactly.

VIRGO is the VIRGIN WHOLE UNTO HERSELF GODDESS and who was the first Virgin GODDESS it was LILITH of course!

As WOMEN are speaking out with TimesUP and MeToo this empowered embodied Virgo hard working Full Moon amps up the LILITH FIRST WOMAN GODDESS refusal to compromise over work pay issue imbalances; health; and boundaries. 

PISCES is the oceanic realm of our emotions the realm of  Karma of past lives; the unconscious; faith; religion; projection; psychic energy; endings; intuition; soul-mates; artists; images; addictions; genius; angels; madness; dreams; self-destruction; spirituality; martyrs; Hollywood; glamour; illusion; and debt. 

VIRGO is the sign balancing out PISCES and vice-versa. VIRGO is earth practical grounded; humble and real-signifying work and what we serve. It is the sign of the HARVEST and the VIRGIN “whole unto- Herself” Goddess of the earth-Ceres. VIRGO is our food our work; humility; our dedication; intelligence; order; accountability; budgets; perfectionism; worrying; nature and natural herbs foods and products and health issues. VIRGO symbolizes what we harvest after all the hard work.

The HERMIT Tarot Trump #9 is the sign associated with VIRGO

It would be good to spend time alone tuning into your body and Mother Earth’s  wisdom.

MERCURY is the ruling planet of VIRGO and not strong in the sign opposite the one it rules. Mercury also rules GEMINI. Mercury is lost in a dream or an illusion or projection.  Communicating from the psychic pineal gland chemistry from the hidden realms of imagination- from the most ephemeral of all signs PISCES- from pure spirit. 

This Moon brings to Fullness what we have been so polarized about since the SOLSTICE. This is the last Full Moon of the Winter season in the Northern Hemisphere. We have to be grateful. 

THERE is a MAJOR WONDERFUL Aspect

VENUS TRINES JUPITER in SCORPIO @ 23+ degrees 

This is a beautiful water trine which includes MERCURY and CHIRON  close by.  VENUS in PISCES is exalted and JUPITER expands. MAKE VERY BIG DEEP WISHES on this FULL MOON and imagine dream believe and make real through VIRGO HARD WORK what your soul and spirit needs to bring through into the world. 

This also describes the MARCH FOR OUR LIVES movement led by students who were killed on Valentine’s Day in Florida Parkland High School. 

Q. ASK HOW CAN I USE MY GIFTS and ABILITIES to SERVE THE HIGHEST GOOD?

MARS @ 20+SAGITTARIUS is conjunct to VESTA the Asteroid Goddess 

VENUS is pulling away from square to MARS and VESTA. NEPTUNE MERCURY and CHIRON are in this tough love but inspiring square. Put some humor on it. VESTA helps us to focus on dedication. It is a very Virgo-like energy. Its what we invest in.

Q. to ask: What am I investing my time energy consciousness and unconsciousness into?

The VIRGO MOON is in a wide T-square to MARS in SAGITTARIUS and VESTA and NEPTUNE MERCURY and VENUS in PISCES

JUPITER is SEXTILING PLUTO

That describes intense fights to the death over power and control issues. NRA anyone? 

SATURN is sextiling the SUN 

This is a nice grounding energy to MANIFEST YOUR DREAMS A SPIRITUAL PRACTICAL WORLD- GROUND YOUR IDEALS.

JUPITER IN SCORPIO inconjuncts URANUS and ERIS in ARIES

This is again echoing new ideas about new guns laws-new- ARIES- the warrior sign- and JUPITER- LAWS- and those entrenched in power money secrets and control. Describing the heating up debate between those who want sensible gun control laws and the rabid NRA and those corporations and government officials who have been bribed. 

The VIRGO MOON sextiles SIRIUS the brightest star in the sky at 14+ degrees CANCER plunk on the U.S. SUN which inconjuncts the SOUTH NODE in AQUARIUS.  

We are harvesting the karmic seeds that were sown regarding old ideas of revolution and freedom. Times have changed. Aquarius the SOUTH NODE is about freedom and change invention and blowing up the old Capricorn Patriarchal structures of history. Time- SATURN marches on. Nothing is ever permanent.

As the FULL MOON pulls on our emotions and our bodies and the oceans listen to your guts- Virgo rules the Upper intestines- and ask: 

What do I need to do to clean up my act? What am I feeding my body?  Am I happy with my work? Does it feed my soul? Where do I need to simplify my life? How can I consume less and live more spiritually? How can I stop my perfectionism and workaholism? What do I serve? How can I learn to listen to my intuition? How can I see the world as one whole with no split between body and spirit? 

An old friend of mine passed away recently and I’m feeling his soul presence as have many others who were close to him. A death always makes us more aware of the preciousness of this human incarnation. Joseph Mark Cohen of Nelson B.C. was an incredible mystic writer teacher tour leader and creator working with Kabbalah Astrology Gematria Crop Circles and all kinds of wonderful things. May you R.I. P. 

RITUAL for a VIRGO FULL MOON

water and earth. It would be good to be out in nature or simply get some clay and water and mold something with your eyes closed by the light of the full moon’s pull. 

VIRGO helps us build healthy boundaries.

Meditate deeply program your dreams. The intense PISCES energy is extremely strong. Create a vision or dream board.  Open to receive your work instructions from your Higher Self and the Angels.

Goddess Centered Capricorn New Moon 

New Moon in Capricorn 1:53 am EST/ 5:53 am GMT is conjunct Mercury Retrograde and we are rethinking, resting, reflecting, resifting through what happened in 2016. A lot! News that actress and mother of Carrie Fisher who just died yesterday  has also passed on just now is very sad but also is a symbol of he strength of the mother-child bond. 

Capricorn Full Moon Constellation Tara Greene

There’s that powerful cardinal T-square involving Jupiter in Libra, opposed to  Uranus conjunct  Ceres and Eris in Aries, although squaring Pluto in Capricorn, yes the fireworks have just begun.

Mars is conjunct Neptune and South  Node in Pisces impacting our need to let go of old karmic contracts now. 

Saturn the ruling planet of this Capricorn New Moon, which is a Feminine earth sign,  is conjunct Juno in Sagittarius @ 18 degrees Sagittarius.

A feminine genius is being brought into this Dark Moon phase as Saturn and JUNO trine with the AMAZONIAN tribe of  Uranus, Ceres, Eris conjunction.

Saturn sextiles Venus in Aquarius and sextiles Uranus + Ceres + Eris. It’s a good time to innovate.

 Venus trines  Jupiter in Libra 

That’s good for freeing up relationship have to’s and brings chaos into traditional love. Expect the unexpected hearts. 

Vesta, the goddess of focus and dedication to the heart-flame of purpose is in Leo and inconjunct this new moon. The work is on making sure your long term goals are dedicated to their task of guarding the Vestal heart flame. Vesta is investments, not just money to make more money but what are you are invested in in ever aspect? That is the major question. 

Use the three days of new moon to focus on your new beginnings for 2017. Remember that there was a full moon 4 years ago at this same degree in 2012, and 4 years before that.

Fabulous Christmas Day Astrology energy

Happy MERRY Void-of- course Christmas and Chanukah.  Ho Ho Ho Santa and the Moon have gone off the radar and are VOID OF COURSE on the 25th at 2:22 am EST/5:22 am GMT.  Christmas 2016 Astrology Tara Greene

A very interesting Void-of-course Christmas Day with Mercury Retrograde and Uranus Retro till until the 29th.  This actually perfectly suits a languid Christmas day. Just relax.

Yes that Scorpio Moon keeps up its’ below the surface intense emotional excavations for the night. Making difficult aspects in a square to VENUS in AQUARIUS an inconjunct to URANUS in ARIES. Scorpio is infamous as a fixed sign which hates to let go of old grudges, resentments and loves obsessing about them. Aquarius’s live and let live equally quote is at odds with that. 

Scorpio Moon trines CHIRON in Pisces 

 We can allow deep wounds to surface because it feels safe because we feel surrounded by an ocean of Pisces love and Bliss. Pisces energy is one of compassion, about returning to Oneness, which is our original source, before the illusion of separation appeared. This heralds great healing, compassion, forgiveness, and unity. Truly great uplifting inspiring energy on Christmas.  So mote it be.

VENUS in AQUARIUS trines JUPITER in LIBRA 

This is one of the best most uplifting positive, inspiring of aspects. We can use this energy to carry us into a unified future. In times of great separation and divisiveness. This Aquarian Love infused energy bodes well for good humor and laissez-faire politics. Something that has been seriously lacking for the many months.  Venus rules LIBRA and she is bringing her Aquarian revolutionary vision of a Utopian future inspiration onto all relationships. 

One a more mundane level this promises very odd jokes and radically different brands of humor. 

VENUS continues to electrify in two fiery sextiles the first to URANUS in ARIES

Women will not take anything lying down or being under any man’s thumb or anything else these days. Bra burning, tampons flying, Pussy Riot inspired, expect women to take the revolution to a new level. 

VENUS sextiles SATURN in SAGITTARIUS in the afternoon

There will be spirited talk about breaking free, overthrowing old traditions and conventions and women agitating to change politics to their own level of justice. Venus in Aquarius allows all this hyper chatter to play out in a detached way. It’s very cerebral.  “You don’t own me” is the women’s anthem of this energy. 

Finally MOON enters fiery SAGITTARIUS at 7:19 pm PSt/10:19 pm EST and next day in GMT 

If you are still hanging with the family the mood lightens up even more and its time to chill, do something sporty or at least move your body around, have some laughs and inspire each other after that heavy Scorpio Mood.

Have yourself a Scorpio Christmas

The Moon is in Scorpio today on Christmas Eve in the U.S. and Chanukah

selfridges christmas shop window Zodiac

Selfridge’s store window Zodiac sign Scorpio

SCORPIO MOON is the most intensely passionate and obsessive of all the moon positions. This aspect brings on Black moods, deeply controlling, secretive, can be manipulative, power hungry shadows. It can be very sexually intense as well. If its just you and a beloved well enjoy the passion. We can use this opportunity to watch our family story just like a movie. Wich it is, your life is your own reality show. Watch all the family dramas, the old stereotypical roles everyone plays from the viewpoint of the watcher. Don’t react, just observe. This is dharma in action. 

Scorpio Moon trine Neptune in the a.m.

This is potentially a very mystical, dreamy, soul mate energy or very sad and lonely, drunken, addicted, in denial place. We can be feeling foggy, dreamy, melancholy, deluded, spiritual, hungover and feeling very empathic.  Do be very careful of overdoing it in the alcohol department. It’s a good night of powerful deeply spiritual and lucid dreaming. You can meet enlightened teachers but also demonic forces, Keep your guards up. Record whatever you dreamed about when you awaken.

Moon sextile Mercury 

This brings some helpful energy to Mercury’s Retrograde motion. If you are traveling and many are, people will be helpful and generally congenial.  Do call up old friends and wish them well. It’s important to reach out.

Saturn in SAGITTARIUS trine Uranus in ARIES at 20 degrees This is a BIG ASPECT.

Saturn is the traditional ruler of both Capricorn and AQUARIUS.  When planet Uranus was discovered March 13, 1781, by William Herschel in England, whose last name letter is still the symbol of Uranus, it became the modern ruler of Aquarius in Tropical Astrology.  By looking at their similarities rather than their differences we can really use this aspect to our best advantage. They are in fact the yin/yang, opposite poles of reality.  Saturn is the limits, history, the status quo. Uranus blasts away the old and frees it up, it invents, liberates, pioneers and radically alters the old structures.

Saturn is conservative and Uranus is the opposite. Those who feel Trump is taking America backwards must hold the light of change, innovation, radical invention, and Aquarian ideals that we are all deserving to be on the same playing field, not just the 1% and not just those corporations who “provide jobs” and are therefore given all kinds of tax-Saturn’s realm, leniency. Aquarius energy is inclusive of all. Everyone has a right to be free to be who they want. 

Scorpio MOON sextiles PLUTO 

This puts the Moon and Pluto into the same realm. PLUTO rules Scorpio. This is a very passionately sexual sign. This aspect easily digs up the old family skeletons. Dysfunctional family stuff will be bursting out more than the turkey’s stuffing. Great. This is just what most people want to avoid at Christmas. But where else to recycle the toxic family unconscious emotional shadows than at ground zero? We can use Pluto’s power as the purifier and recycler of the soul and the knower of shades to clarify our own soul, our own validity. Use all the shadows as a means to recognize them but not to be triggered and act on them. This can be challenging but also very transformative and liberating. If you can pass this test, you are truly free and clear and can laugh at all your shadows. Be careful around Trump supporters they are the most vitriolic. But so are Dem supporters these days. Watch and compare the two. It’s a remarkable show.

Moon square Venus in late PST/ Dec 25 in the wee hours 

This is a lovely deeply soulful heart energy. Think of those you love who have passed recently and in your past. This aspect helps us to plumb the depths of unfelt emotions. Let the tears or rage rise up. Squares bring up conflict. Be careful of touching raw nerves 

VENUS in AQUARIUS is also TRINE JUPITER in LIBRA

The overall benefits of this can not be overestimated considering everything else. No matter how much deep-seated trauma and emotional gut wrenching hurt a Scorpio Moon can dredge up. This aspect between the planet of Love and the PLANET of GENEROSITY brings peace, and goodwill, and largesse allowing everyone the space to be who they are which can overrule the Moon. But remember this detachment and being NICE for the sake of appearances can also be too superficial. The real emotional deep rivers of lava are still there running and burning underneath everything. You may leave feeling very wounded afterwards.

SATURN in SAGITTARIUS is squaring CHIRON

The old patriarchal family wounds will be triggered. Be careful of talking politics, which is Saturn in Sagittarius current preferred Karmic mode of torture and tests. Most people will feel hurt and offended by any positions these days.

JUPITER in LIBRA is opposite URANUS in ARIES

Bolting from the table because of a slight is very likely. Uranus in ARIES is impulsive and rash.The clash of the TITANS.  There will be clashes between liberals, and conservatives. Someone will have to attempt to be the conciliator, counsellor, or go-between. Divorces may be triggered. 

Sounds like it will be a heavily emotional Christmas climate. Be prepared. Remember to wear psychic armor at all times. Practice being loving and seeing everyone in your family as a wounded child who is unconscious and who only appear to be an adult. You can get through this, the Scorpio Moons purpose is transformation. 

MARS is in PISCES is very close to the SOUTH NODE of the MOON

Mars rules the Scorpio Moon. Use this energy as a conscious action to let go of past unconsciousness, martyrdom, fail for spite, power games, obsessive ego games, hiding out, blaming others, using addictions, and being co-dependent. Get rid of all of these avoidance techniques. Life is a rehab center. Just let go of all old karmic residue and boldly move on. This is a very spiritual Warrior position. Mars in Pisces is strong enough to be vulnerable, and compassionate. We can get close to the wounded masculine. At the appropriate times we can let down our shieds and our guard. True intimacy is possible.

Sending you blessings for a great Chanukah too.

Gabriel Garcia Marquez, life and death Astrology by Tara Greene

Sorry if I haven’t been writing the last few days I have been in a workshop in Sedona all day from 8:00 am – 6:30 pm and I come home quite exhausted with “homework.” 

I was all set to write my MOON in Sagittarius and  weekend EASTER outlook but found the news that one of my favourite writers Gabriel Garcia Marquez has passed away April 17 in Mexico City at 87 years of age.

Gabriel Garcia Marquez tara greene

One Hundred Years of Solitude, his most famous novel sold more than thirty million copies and won him the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1982.  Chilean poet and Nobel Laureate writer Pablo Neruda  called the novel “the greatest revelation in the Spanish language since Don Quixote.” the 17th century masterpiece by Cervantes.

Gabo, as he was affectionately known achieved fame for pioneering the quintessentially marvelous and mundane form called Magical realism.

The eldest of eleven children, he was raised by his grandparents, who were very influential in his later stories. Gabo started out as a law student but then abandoned it to  follow his own immutable ways and worked for many years as a journalist. He was always highly critical of Columbian and foreign politics. His friendship with Cuban President Castro and as an outspoken opponent of U.S. Imperialism Gabo was banned from entering the United States for many years until President Bill Clinton lifted the ban.

Gabo had been ill with lymphatic cancer since 1999, recovered and various stories of his death and recovery, of writing new novels  came and went. Gabo died of pneumonia. The world tweeted and newspaper articles heralded his genius and his undoubtable legacy which will never be forgotten.

“Think of love as a state of grace, not the means to anything, but the alpha and the omega, an end unto itself.” from Love in the time of cholera.

I adored 100 years of Solitude and his novels inspired me to read and enjoy many other wonderful Spanish writers. So lets see just who GABO was in his life and what was occurring at the time of his death.

Gabriel Garcia Marquez astrology by Tara Greene

A QUADRUPLE PISCES born March 6 1927 at 9:00 am in Aracataca Columbia. Marquez had a very supportive Jupiter, ANCIENT RULER of Pisces conjunct his SUN in the 11th house of revolutionaries, higher consciousness, collaborators, independent egoless leaders.

Born with a sensual hard-working, stubborn, focused, Venus ruled salt of the earth Taurus Ascendant.

His Moon- symbolizing his mother is at 24 degrees ARIES is in the 12th house of spirituality, imagination, compassion, creativity. He was telepathically connected to his mother.  Moon is conjunct to Chiron the wounded healer and in the 12th house can indicate a difficult birth and he had the umbilical cord wrapped round his neck.

CHIRON at 29 degrees Aries is conjunct his Ascendant- Marquez wasn’t afraid to speak out for the wounds of the people as symbolized by the Moon. The Moon is trine to Neptune Retrograde at 25 degrees Leo in the 4th house of childhood, home, roots which perfectly describes how Gabo turned his early childhood upbringing, his Grandfather- The Colonel and his parents courtship into his greatest books. Neptune is also close to Fixed Star Raphael- the heart of the Lion- which denotes courage and fame.

As a writer his Mercury would be of prime importance. Interestingly Mercury is RETROGRADE at 27 degrees Pisces- which is always a very creative, thinking outside the box aspect. Mercury conjuncts Uranus in Pisces in the 11th house of  rebelliousness, genius, spiritual, imagination, empathy. This was where Marquez creative genius lies in that planetary combination. He channeled his writings but was also a very hard worker. Uranus and Mercury Quincunx Neptune making it difficult for Gabo to have fleshed out his unique talent although it was a passionate love affair.

VENUS in Aries at 9 degrees in the 12th house. An independent passionate artist, one who forges his own path, impulsive, energetic, but also reclusive, tending his souls’ fire.

Venus squares PLUTO Retrograde at 13 degrees Cancer in his 3rd house of communications, siblings, information gathering- he was a journalist. This is a very powerful INTENSE combo. Pluto is on FIXED STAR SIRIUS- the God Osirus, and the position of the United States Sun which Gabo opposed its Venusian money ruled Imperialism. Pluto on this Star brings much worldly success. He poured his soul into his ideas and communications.

Mars in GEMINI in the 2nd house of resources, suits a journalist and writer to a T. Mars is the General the warrior with words, and it opposes SATURN at 7 degrees of Sagittarius, close to Fixed Star Antares- war- his Grandfather was a General, in the 8th house of soul, resurrection, birth, death, power, control, other people’s resources. This is traditionally a difficult and karmic aspect. Yet here Marquez Grandfather as the Saturn figure of seniority, discipline is also square to Jupiter in Pisces and his Sun. so he benefitted from a rather strict upbringing. Saturn trines Venus again indicating the legacy of the Patriarchs in his work. His Grandfather gave him valuable  guidance and stories which helped make his a great success.

His North Node at 4 degrees of Cancer in the 3rd house is a quest for family, nurturing, protection of the family legacy and communicating that. He married one woman and had two sons. His South N0de in Capricorn in the 9th house of philosophy, teaching, International travel, foreigners, telling the truth, mysticism indicates that Marquez was someone who held power in a past life. Capricorn is also the house of worldly fame, the father or Patrinlineal lineage. He already had a strong connection, a strong work ethic he was an achiever, who had to embrace family and he bridged both those nodes superbly in his writing.

AT HIS DEATH April 17

Marquez had the Grand Cardinal Cross of Pluto {death} opposing his Natal Pluto at 13 degrees Cancer in his 3rd house, which is Gemini like and rules the lungs. This would literally indicate water {Cancer} on the lungs or pneumonia which was the cause of death. Also Uranus squaring his Pluto, Mars squaring it and Jupiter conjunct it.

The BLOOD RED Total Lunar eclipse on April 15 was at 25 degrees of Libra, falling in his 6th house of health and exactly opposite to his Natal Moon in the 12th house.  Indicating a powerful passing away into spirit.

The Sun was conjunct his  Aries Moon in the 12th house which indicates a peaceful New Moon and spiritual awakening into death.

Transiting Venus in Pisces was conjunct his Natal Jupiter and the Sun in the 11th house and Trine to Jupiter and conjunct his Natal Pluto. If there was a good day to die this would be the aspect to die under. Talk about dying for love, this is exactly what this symbol depicts. Very beautiful, auspicious, a great death for someone who so inspired and touched the world’s soul.

Which is also a symbol of beauty and spirituality. CHIRON the wounded healer was exactly conjunct to his SUN at 15 degrees Pisces, and he achieved peace from being wounded and passed on into the Sol/soul to the next worlds.

The Transiting SOUTH Node at 28 degrees Aries in the 12th house of endings, had just made a conjunction to his Natal Chiron, again indicating a healing journey, a completion, a release.

Thank You GAbo for your beautiful inspiring tales of love, unrequited, loneliness, surreal reality and empathy.
