Someone said in a comments thread that Robin Williams was a 'wounded healer'. I found that fascinating since he has a lot of Chiron energy in his chart. What follows, is a description of Robin William's energy, from an astrological point of view:
It is appropriate to honor the life of a Master, but especially appropriate to honor it here, a place where many of the "Chiron family" of the planet gather. Robin Williams was a Chiron. His natal Chiron was located at the degree of the Galactic Center and his Ascendant was in aspect to the Chiron Point. His natal Chiron was in opposition to his Black Moon. This means his soul carried the energetic signature of the Wounded Healer/Teacher. Underneath his persona, he was a master healer anchoring great love on the planet.
But the Sun's conjunction with Mercury and the Black Moon at the super Full Moon on Sunday was too much for him as it made conjunction with his natal Pluto. The archontic attack that accompanied the Full Moon inundated him. His natal Black Moon in Cancer, along with his three other planets in Cancer, made 2013 a difficult year as the Black Moon transited Cancer. Chiron has been transiting his natal Moon by conjunction and also his natal Venus by opposition. He was overwhelmed by grief and self-loathing.
For all Chiron people, the proportion of one's healing abilities is relative to the amount of pain one has experienced. In this way, we see the great depth of Robin's pain and the accompanying ability to heal. His performances in Good Will Hunting and What Dreams May Come? , among his many others, heal the heart.
I do not believe Robin Williams ever recovered from the loss of his dear old friend Christopher Reeve. You can see Robin's devotion to helping his friend in the picture below. Note the prominence of Robin's hands firmly on Chris. Chiron rules the hands and healing power is transmitted through them. His love was boundless.
Robin Williams knew he was battling demons. But he thought the demons were part of him. If he had known about the parasitic mind infection of the Archons would he have viewed things differently? We will never know.
We can honor his contribution by recognizing the wounding, the teaching, and the healing presented. The wound is from a force that stands against us that can trick us into hating ourselves enough to feel unworthy of life. The teaching is that no one can be a superman alone, but the power of one person can be superhuman. The healing comes from embracing the power of joy and humor to heal.
In the Mayan Calendar, Robin Williams was born on the day 1 Death, which means the power to initiate of transformation. May his life serve to heal us.)
