Happy Birthday Canada, eh? Canuck Astrology from Tara Greene

It’s Canada’s 147th birthday, July 1st 2014. Happy Birthday True North Strong and Free.

I am a second generation Canadian on both sides of my family. Countries also have birth charts and on your birthday- when the Sun comes exactly to where it was when you- or the country was born, is a transit called a Solar Return astrology chart and it describes the entire year ahead. So lets see what’s up for Canada, eh?

READ ABOUT CANADA’S NATAL CHART in more depth on my website http://www.taratarot.com/id186.html

Canada  congratulations, you are having your 5th SATURN RETURN.

Your Natal SATURN- planet of testing, limitations, karma, history, corporate structure is at 17 degrees of Scorpio in your Natal 7th house of committed relationships, business ones for countries. Saturn has already made one pass over this point and now is Retrograde over that point and Saturn turns DIRECT near it  on July 20 @ 16+ degrees.

BUT CANADA also has PLUTO directly opposite Saturn in its birth chart.

Pluto is at 15 degrees of Taurus at the most powerful degree in the 1st house  of identity.

Saturn is also exactly opposing Pluto. Pluto is the Unconscious, the Psyche, soul, urge to power, secrets, manipulation, riches. Pluto is recycling, death and rebirth. Canada is indeed blessed with being a Pluto in TAURUS, resource rich in oil, minerals, fresh water, millions of acres of untouched wilderness place.

Saturn opposite Pluto is about POWER and CONTROL struggles. Who owns what? Ruthlessness, death and rebirth, secrets, PLUTOCRACY. 

Saturn will exactly conjunct that natal position on  August 27th.  This means Canada’s strength, power and identity is being exposed on the world’s stage. Power struggles over resources, oil,water rights, Northernmost parts of Canada-= territorial disputes. Jupiter will enter LEO and ENLARGE the STRUGGLE by squaring these points in late September and early October 2014, late February with Jupiter Retrograde- renegotiating,  and May of 2015 with Jupiter going direct again.

THE LOONIE Canada’s $1 coin called that affectionately by Canucks has slumped over the last year after staying neck and neck with the U.S. dollar for the last few years. Canada’s unemployment rate is relatively high and its economy relies mainly on high oil prices to prop up the notoriously environmentally degrading filthy Alberta Tara Sands- favourite boy toy of Prime Minister Harper.

Saturn by Transit also triggers Canada’s nice Grand Water trine to its natal Saturn, the South  Node and its CANCER SUN and URANUS.

If Canada doesn’t innovate -Uranus and change its past- South Node- it can be left behind.

CANADA has been under the influence of the GRAND CARDINAL CROSS

with URANUS on its ASCENDANT, Pluto in its Natal 10th house of being seen on the world’s stage going through a Power shift, CANADA SOARED through the 2008 world economy slump with all stars sailing and was the envied economy of the rest of the world. Mars in Libra in the 6th house of work on its Descendant and Jupiter in Cancer in its own 4th house- where there has been and continues to be massive flooding, in the Western prairies. 

URANUS is EXACTLY on Canada’s NEPTUNE and ASCENDANT NOW and the TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE on October 8 is at 15 degrees + of Aries, further magnifying the INTENSE, CHAOTIC, Neptunian -hard to see, undercover  EXPLOSIVE ENERGIES which are about to change Canada’s identity and future for the next 84 years. That’s one complete Uranus cycle.

CANADIANS need to get ready to wake up and start the spiritual and tech freedom revolution. 

URANUS and NEPTUNE change the world’s stage culturally. In their long cycles of 600 years, Astrologer Charles Jayne pointed out that during these two planets’s conjunction or opposition new religions and philosophies are born.

575 B.C. Buddha and Pythagoras were born. Confuscious in China. Jews in Babylonian captivity.

624 A.D. Mohammed leaves Mecca. Birth of Islam.

1821 conjunction. Founders of the Bahai religion are born. Joseph Smith converted to Mormonism.  Mary Baker Eddy- Christian Science, Unity; Thoreau and Walt Whitman born.   In 1821 Napoleon came saw conquered and lost.

REVOLUTION is Uranus and Neptune is religion so this can take the form of  Islamic Terrorists attempting to take over the Canadian government by force who are  already deeply implanted in Canada which could shake the foundations of democracy and religion. Alternatively the Canadian People may wake up and revolt.

URANUS is new technology and Canada is a service oriented economy and may LEAD the way in new tech. There may be some amazing groundbreaking discoveries in Medicine, just as Banting and Best did in the 20’s, new Scientific discoveries Neptune rules drugs, Pharmaceuticals; Uranus and Neptune are Transpersonal Planets affecting generations. Neptune rules  compassion, addictions, oil, debt, creativity, art, music, actors, loss of ego. Uranus conjunct Canada’s Ascendant and Neptune can create an ego- loss or an inflated illusory sense of identity based on something unreal. Uranus is weird, all encompassing- gay marriage rights, freedom, independence, collective leadership and Neptune is drugs, dropping out, getting stoned.

Prime Minister Harper has set Canada up on a very fragile platform of oil economics which in a matter of months could go belly up if some new cheap efficient technology totally supplanted it. 

CANADA is getting ready to get rocked. Can be all of these things at once and more. Uranus Neptune is unimagined freedom, brave new worlds. A confluence of tech and blow your mind Blissed out Oneness.

Many young people born n the early 90’s are born with this Uranus Neptune Conjunction in Capricorn and are also being affected by the GRAND CARDINAL CROSS Energy now.

CANADA’S South Node is in PISCES at 16 degrees in the 12th house of the hidden, spirituality, creativity, illusion, humility, secrets, oil, debt. Chiron, the wounded healer has been hovering over it and will continue to be there till February 2015.  Canada’s past- South Node – its Culture, religion, and compassion for its people as shown through its Universal Health Care system are all very vulnerable now with privatization being pushed by the Conservative government of Stephen Harper. This also indicates secretive, oily, self-undoing going on behind the scenes. Canada’s past is largely in the Unconscious. It’s compassion for all nations and religions- Pisces may be its downfall. 

CHIRON is also squaring Canada’s VENUS in GEMINI at 15 degrees in its 2nd house of resources. Canada must have two economies. Weak dollar, weak work force, indecisive leadership. Not enough creative thinking.

NEPTUNE in PISCES is sitting on CANADA’S NATAL JUPITER in its 12th house which is opposite its Natal Mars in VIRGO in its 6th house of health.

This is a lot of NEPTUNIAN energy affecting Canada now. Danger of being Unconscious, addicted, opting out, depressed, lethargic, deluded, unbounded, too vulnerable. MARTYRDOM. Jupiter expands whatever it touches. Jupiter is the ruler of Pisces in Tradition. Lots of empathy, too loose boundaries, avoidance, too much water, religion, illusions about power, strength. DEBT. Untenable position. Inflated prices.

Mars in Virgo in the 6th is a perfectionist and a workaholic. Neptune opposite that makes the workers foggy, dreamy, deluded. Drugging the masses with false promises. Amassing too much debt to keep up with an illusory lifestyle. A hard to distinguish malaise. Neptune does that. Wishful thinking en masse. The drug of nine to five- tick tock.  Unemployment, lay offs, downsizing.

On the positive side it can mean money to support the arts, re-establishing Corporate 1% donations mandatory for the arts. Awakening to the illusion of the terrible self-destruction of the addiction to oil and the Canadian weak economy that the Alberta Tar sands has on the entire country by pollution, global warming, etc.

SO HAPPY BIRTHDAY to all the beavers.
