What can the stars tell us about the death of Tim Russert?

Go to fullsize imageLet’s take a closer look…

russert-natal-chart.jpeg  russert-death-chart.jpegTim Russert was born on May 7, 1950 in Buffalo, New York. No time of birth available.

Tim Russert was a non-nonsense Taurus—determined and single-purposed—with Mercury, how one thinks and communicates, in Taurus, retrograde. Retrograde makes him more capable of being open-minded. But what solidified his reputation as an effective interviewer of the most powerful men and women in the world—he asked the tough questions and never let up until his subject answered them—was his Grand Earth Trine: Moon in Capricorn (cold and detached), Sun/Mercury in Taurus and Mars in Virgo (picky, critical and analytical—he got what he was digging for every time).

He had Jupiter in Pisces (caring and visionary) trine his Uranus in Cancer (for all his noise about ‘family matters’ Tim was not a carbon copy of his dad or anyone else in the family).

When someone dies as young as Tim Russert was, everyone comes out of the woodwork to ‘praise Caesar’ and praise Tim they did. But he was not one who got too close to any of his subjects—he would not allow anything to get in the way of his subjective reporting, which is borne out in his natal and progressed charts. My favorite moment with Tim Russert was an interview with Hillary Clinton when she was trying to waffle on NAFTA and he made her declare, something almost impossible with either of the Clintons.

The signals for death for Tim Russert were transiting Pluto has been squaring his natal Venus in Aries for six months—this indicates that he has been at risk for some time but more than likely had not had a check-up recently, especially a medical examination that would have uncovered his heart condition. Death is always accompanied by ‘ease and comfort’ transits as well. His progressed Moon in Pisces was trining his progressed Sun in Cancer. Trines are usually always benefic. Uranus was transiting at 22 degrees of Pisces opposing his natal Mars at 22 degrees of Virgo—both Uranus and Mars indicate sudden happenstance, and Virgo is always a mark of health issues. Both would indicate trigger points for sudden death.

Tim Russert will be hard to replace because we are living in a currency where everyone in public life seem to crave being loved and adored—it’s the Oprah syndrome cloned with the Sally Field cry at the Oscars a few years ago: “You love me; you really do love me!”

God bless Tim Russert. I will miss you more than you know—I loved watching “big pieces of stuff” squirm, forced to tell the truth to a gentleman and a scholar on national television.

He is AUTHOR OF Clearing for the Millennium, �Signs and Wonders-Understanding the language of God and You're Not Who You Think You Are-A Breakthrough Guide to Discover your Authentic Self will be published by Atria Books, a division of Simon & Schuster in December of this year.

A member of the National Association of Transpersonal Psychology and the American Federation of Astrologers, Gaulden founded the Sedona Intensive, a personal growth and empowerment program, to help clients retrieve their authentic selves and tap into their inner power.

Gaulden coined the term astroanalysis-a combination of Jungian psychology and astrology-to describe how he helps free clients from compulsions, addictions, and unresolved issues, which keep them from living a life of peace and joy.

Albert saw things others didn't and heard what they couldn't from the age of two. When he was five he asked his mother why she seemed more like his dad and his dad more like the mother. As a pre-schooler he was tuned into the rich world of intuition and past lives even though he had no one to shepherd him through these recollections and recalls. At Birmingham-Southern he click connected with the unique psychological work and world of Swiss psychoanalyst, Dr. Carl Jung and his take on the shadow self. Gaulden believes that all-seeing and all-knowing is born within a child and it is the false and mundane world that erases his memory of what is really true. The integration of the divided self, putting one back together through a conscious fusion with his or her shadow is the underpinning of his work in the Sedona Intensive.

Albert studied with renowned astrology Byrd Knapp, Darrell Harris and Katharine de Jersey, as well as took Awareness Classes with Lee Jones at the Spiritualist Church in Los Angeles in the 70's, and attended the Corrado Academy of Perception in 1978 which led to his meeting actor John Travolta using the tools of manifestation learned at the Academy, and selling John El Adobe de Tajiguas, a 35-acre estate that abutted Ronald Reagan's ranch near Gaviota Beach in Southern California.

Gaulden worked in 1986 with international-best selling author of The Celestine Prophecy, James Redfield in Albert's innovative and one-of-a-kind personal empowerment program, the Sedona Intensive, which he founded in 1982. Albert was hired to use his gifts as an astro-intuitive to help cast Redfield's movie of The Celestine Prophecy.

Gaulden travels the world to teach and speak and finds Egypt particularly one of the most intriguing countries in the world. In December he will be returning with a tour group of clients and friends to the Land of the Nile and Pharaohs and the Great Pyramid of Cheops, the Sphinx and other ancient digs and monuments in Upper and Lower Egypt.

His clients include sports figures, actors, royalty, Wall Street executives, men and women and young people from all walks of life who are eager to face those defects of character that keep them from being who they really are. He rigorously maintains the anonymity of his clients.

Additionally, Gaulden is a motivational speaker on such popular themes as "Mr. Right is Usually Mr. Wrong-Falling in Love With Make-Believe", "Take Your Power Back", "The Power of a Great Idea", the Death of Terror and the Rebirth of Bliss, �"Why Relationships Don't Work but How They Can" and many other provocative topics.
