Cuba U.S. relations reborn, Cigars anyone?

In the news- never a dull moment. President Obama announced a new era of relations with Communist Cuba after 56 years. 56 = 8 x 7 which is like a second Saturn return.  Two x 28. The old cold war trade embargoes haven’t worked. The Pope [!]  and Canada were partly involved in facilitating and assisting in an American prisoner being  released. Canada has maintained open trade with Cuba all these years. America will re-open an embassy and Americans will be allowed to travel and bring back Cuban cigars, rum and other goods to the U.S. 

Uranus and Pluto and Saturn are at it again.

CUBA US astrology by Tara Greene

The large chart is the chart for the Republic of Cuba in 1902 when it gained independence from the U.S. and transits of December 17, 2014.

Cuba’s Sun is conjunct to the weeping 7 sisters, the archeo-mythic Pleiades. Also this is ALgol, Medusa’s head or the demon star,the star of dictators. Algol means alcohol in Arabic. The Arabs were famous mathematicians and astrologers. Algol is connected to fear of primal feminine power.

Cuba’s name originally meant “fertile earth” and that’s a great description for a Taurus Sun at 28 degrees also  on the “critical 29th degree.” Cuba would be a most earthy, sensual, stubborn, realistic, creative, musical and resourceful place. 

Cuba’s Moon in Scorpio is conjunct the North Node. The People are the Moon in a country’s chart. They dictate its direction, and they are very emotional, dramatic, intense, soulful, secreted away,controlled, possessive,sexy and transformative. 

Cuba’s Ascendent at ZERO degrees Virgo. The Fixed Star Regulus, star of Kings entered the Constellation Virgo the Goddess since November 2011. Regulus aka Raphael the Archangel is also symbolized by this star which rules the heart chakra. Yes Cuba’s Star is rising and protected by this Angel. The big island is spot on to be a major player in the next segment of evolution as the earth Mother, the Virgin Goddess once again ascends. Cuba will be leading us into ways of living in a more ecologically natural balanced way and to harvest her gifts with respect.

Cuba vacation Astrology

MERCURY, PLUTO, NEPTUNE conjunction in Gemini the 10th house of worldly status.

Cuban would be a nation of extremes. Mercury, Pluto, Neptune in Gemini is a country built on powerful idealism, rhetoric and secret cabals of power. I wont go into Castro’s chart here. Cuba has always worn two faces, two masks. I have been to Cuba and found the people to be very Gemini like, open, charming, innocent exuberant, curious, idealistic and proud of their ability to stand alone in the world. 

Venus at the mid- degree of Aries and Mars is in Taurus. Both planets are debilitated in each others signs and in mutual reception. Women are very strong and independent in Cuba. Mars is action and relates to cars,Mars in Taurus symbolizes the antique preserved cars in Cuba born out of necessity. Mars in Taurus is more passive. It delights in the paradise of the Island. Taurus is indolentdoesnt like change. Cubans  lover of music, dance, creativity and the arts, farming and resourcefulness.

Jupiter in Aquarius symbolizes new ideas, a classless society, communist ideals. The workers {6th house} share the wealth.

Saturn is Retrograde in Capricorn in the 5th house. There is  respect for tradition, the Patriarchy, hard work, working the land. With Saturn Retrograde it symbolizes being  orphaned, or rejected by  various countries over its history. The U.S. Natal Pluto is exactly at this same degree 27 degrees Capricorn. The two countries have a fated intertwined history.

Uranus at 20 degrees Sagittarius Retrograde opposite PLUTO and Mercury show the REVOLUTIONARY higher inspirational nature of Cuba. Its power in the world is its ability to be philisophical,and in taking the high road. 

December 17 2014

The Uranus Pluto square of Monday December 15, sees the two planets transiting exactly on Cuba’s Venus in the 8th house! This is the Scorpio house of rebirth, death, taxes, recycling, of other people’s money. Yes a New revolutionary wave has hit Cuba again. This is invigorating and infuses new technology to its economy, status, values and culture.

Pluto in the 5th house is squaring Venus and also conjunction Cuba’s Natal Chiron, where it is most vulnerable, wounded but which also holds the greatest healing at 14 degrees Capricorn. Big money, corporations and power will start to flow into Cuba from American tourism, new infrastructure, hotels and business ventures which brings rebirth and new life.

Saturn is exactly opposite Cuba’s SUN, changing the serious role of Cuba on the world’s stage. These are sobering heavy realities for Cubans which will be another type of test.. The test will be how much it limits itself and how it retains its history, laws and  ideology as it matures into a new karmic evolutionary stage. Jupiter will also square Saturn and Cuba’s Sun next August.  I believe communist consumerism will work in Cuba the way it has in China. 

Jupiter in Leo in the 12th house is opposite Cuba’s natal Jupiter and squaring its Mars in Taurus in the 9th house. This is always expansive, opportune, good fortune but not openly visible. The heart of the peoples’ will is what will propel Cuba’s future forward. Jupiter is travel, and tourism has saved Cuba. Many players will by jockeying for position. There will be new educational learning curves and much exports of cigars as a status symbol. Jupiter will cross Cuba’s Ascendant next August 13, 2015 that will be  like a butterfly emerging from a long chrysalis stage in its full beauty.

Neptune is Trining Cuba’s North Node at 4 degrees Scorpio from the 7th house of relationships with all ‘others.” Cuba will have to be very careful of wearing those rose colored glasses as it may idealize the dream. Neptune rules glamour, all the illusory stuff of Hollywood and American consumer culture.  Neptune also rules drugs, addictions, gambling,and debt. We don’t want Cuba to go this route.This was part of what Cuba’s revolution took place against. Cuba did not sell out in the past that is one of its strengths and goals to be obsessively Scorpio strong in its unwavering desire.

Get ready to cha-cha. Smoke big cigars and see those beautiful 50’s imported cars being sold for bug bucks. Viva Cuba.

I also wanted to include this link for another way of seeing the synchronicity of the date to the planets by Olga Morales also a Cosmic Intelligence Agent.
