MARS opposes NEPTUNE, reignite the dream

This is an important transit, between Mars in Virgo, very earthy, grounded, accountable,practical and REAL. Neptune in its’ home sign Pisces, the spiritual, KARMA and everything ephemeral and mystical. This is Exact on Oct 6 @ 7:53 pm PDT/ 10:53 pm EDT

I would definitely use this aspect in a practical magic ritual.

Mars in Virgo  September 24-Nov. 12 

MARS in Virgo energy is extremely analytical hard-working and precisely driven. Virgo is ruled by MERCURY, it is a mutable grounded sign with a strong intellectual connotation. Mars in Virgo’s energy is very disciplined about health, diet, hygiene and order. Mars in Virgo brings out the  OCD impulses, always worrying and fussing. This is a time of hyper criticism and focussing on what is communicated. Mars in Virgo will have you balance your books, rail on your budgets, and be super nerdy. Much like Sheldon Cooper in the Big Bang Theory. BAZINGA!

Mars in Virgo -The pen is mightier than the sword and intellectual attacks can slay with criticism.

Mars in Virgo wants to clean up the Environment. This aspect works against Stephen Harper whose Conservatives destroyed the Alberta Tar Sands and the Canadian reputation for caring about ecology. 

These energies also indicate an integration of spiritual healing, using sound, water, vibrations and herbal remedies into or opposed to mainstream medicine.

Mars in Virgo is squaring Sagittarius horse butts to get their acts together, makes Pisces dreamers get real, and grounds airy Gemini’s into taking care of business and balancing accounts.

The ECONOMY is about to CRASH! OCTOBER is historicaly always the month of big Market crashes. 

Venus will re-enter Virgo October 8th putting 3 personal planets in Virgo. The servant’s sign.  Venus Mars Jupiter Saturn and Neptune are all in Mutable signs, changeable energy.

The PTP  Pacific Trade Pact was signed in secret October 5 in Atlanta at 5:00 am under this Mars Neptune energy.

Which is all about secrets, land, the veil of illusion, pipe dreams, enslavement, water. The Chinese government can come to Canada for example with their own Chinese $2 a day slave workers and destroy any piece of  property they want with impunity and not have to clean up the mess. They can also sue for loss of profits. This is a terrible mess. The New World Order and the Corporate world slavery years have begun unless this is turned around.  Big Pharma is also a huge player in this. Neptune rules DRUGS of all kinds.  Why reached in secret? What do they not want the people to know?

Mars in Virgo is the accountant. Neptune in Pisces is debts, endings of cycles, Oneness, compassion and forgiveness.

Read what happened to American Retail giant American Apparel, which has the filed for bankruptcy

So take a long hard look at your debts. To many Gen X’ers having a Mortgage think it is not a debt but an asset. It’s a debt. The bank owns your house until you pay it off in its entirety.  

Mars is drive, sexuality, defenses, energy, initiating. Virgo is the body, the digestive tract, the intestines. Animal intestines used to be read by diviners years ago. Virgo is health. Virgo is the service oriented sign. Humble, real, hard-working and intelligent.

Hey we sure could use a drive back to Intelligence these days, practical thinking, common sense. 

Neptune in Pisces is the fantasy, the projection, the glamour, the illusion, the dream. Neptune rules oil, now tanking, Hollywood, drugs recreational and pharmaceutical, addictions, delusions. Neptune rules film, photography, video games. Neptune in Pisces is spiritual escapism, false gurus, rehab, debt, credit cards,  ashrams, karma and institutions.

So we get the first reality check here.  Neptune and Saturn will square off on Nov. 26 2015 for the first time and continue into 2016.

This date it is very historical. On October 9 1965 @ 3;17 pm EST Uranus and Pluto were exactly conjunct at the 18th degree of Virgo.  There would be two more conjunctions on April 4 and June 30 in 1966 at the 17th degree of Virgo. The Uranus Pluto cycle began in 1850-51 when Pluto was not yet discovered. This was a time of the wider spread of the Industrial Revolution and Colonialism. The Chart is calculated without EST.

This week marks the 50th anniversary of the first exact Uranus Pluto conjunction and the Chiron Return of this definitive time. This is a time for the torch that was lit in the 60’s to be passed to those born during this time to act on those seeded impulses..

Uranus Pluto 60's /2015 Astrology Tara Greene

We are experiencing the Chiron Return of the beginning of the 60’s Revolution. This is a time to look back at where these times were birthed. The ideal of the 60’s.

-Bob Dylan played with Toronto/ Arkansaw band The Hawks for the first time around this date. – Like A Rolling Stone was a huge hit.

-Yesterday by the Beatles and Eve of Destruction by Barry McGuire were big hits.

It was John Lennon’s 25th birthday.

-Fidel Castro was on the cover of Time Magazine. 

-Helen Gurley Brown became the chief editor of Cosmopolitan Magazine re inventing it for single career women. A first in women’s liberation.
-Andy Warhol has his first large museum show at ICA in Philadelphia.

See how the planets are aligned again to vibrate off the original signature chord struck then;

Jupiter at 11 degrees Virgo is exactly opposite to where Saturn was and close to where Uranus and Pluto were. Expanding into a higher octave of learning.

Transiting Neptune at 7 degrees of Pisces in 2015 is squaring the South Node at 5 degrees Sagittarius and the North Node at 5 degrees Gemini. Where have we ended up since then?

Saturn now at 1 degree Sagittarius is conjunct to Venus at zero Sag. and Mars at 3 of Sag. and the South Node and Saturn is also inconjunct to 1965’s Jupiter at 1 degree Cancer. This is a karmic result of the Values, economics, of women, {VENUS} the drives, protests, wars {Mars}  and educational philosophical teachings that we have left behind Soth Node in Sagittarius. Saturn opposing the North Node in Gemini is the communications and over-heady place we are at now.. 

Transitting Uranus at 18 degrees Aries is opposed to 1965 Sun in Libra at 16 degrees. How much of a revolution did we have? What really changed? Do we have the peace and equal relationships we hoped we did?

Pluto in Capricorn is also square to the Sun in 1965. The corporate reality vs. The Ideology.

Clearly what has been triggered then is being revisited now. 

Those born in the mid- 60’s will now have to act on the cosmic plan which was seeded then with their own consciousness to be their guide. 

MARS Neptune opposition ritual

For a ritual i would want to find the middle ground between the uber harsh reality and the false addictive escapist fantasy. 

At 7 degrees Sagittarius/ Gemini is the middle ground Conjunct to Archangel Ariel. Fixed Star Antares.

This is a good energy to break addictions with. Mars in Virgo gives strength of mind and determination over the body. 

Mars in Virgo takes account of your denial, what you have been avoiding and procrastinating about.

Neptune in Pisces with Mars can bring back a very practical faith, a spiritual discipline. 

Health issues need to be considered from the mind/body/spiritual/emotional split. Western medicine is all head and science. Eastern Medicine sees spiritual and emotional causes. There are karmic reasons for disease as well. 

Are you carrying your past life, or your genetic heritage’s ill health?

Virgo is the earth and we first and foremost must look at what we have done to our environment and take responsibility for cleaning up the mess. 

The CHIRON RETURN Of this Historical event will last all year.

Jupiter will exactly cross 17 degrees Virgo  from November 2-8 2015 and  March 10-18 2016 Retrograde, and June 30-July 7, 2016 with Jupiter Direct. Reigniting these original conjunctions issues and ideals.

Saturn { testing, obstacles, karma} will square 17 degrees Virgo {1965 position November 24- December 4, 2016. 

Jupiter in Virgo squares Saturn in Sagittarius March 23 2016 at 16+ degrees and May 26 at 14+ degrees Virgo/Pisces.

Saturn and Neptune Retrograde have an EXACT Square on June 18/19 2016 at 12+ degrees Sagittarius/Pisces again another EXACT on Sept 10/11 @ 10+ degrees Sagittarius/Pisces.

Jupiter and Saturn sextile each other exactly on December 31 2016 at 21+ degrees Libra/ Sagittarius.

  1. Mayan calendar says today’s combination Kawoq(unfolding of the cosmic plan, abundance) & 9(feminine energy, wisdom, love, realization) is a very blissful day. Important to put out your prayers to Creator so that blessings and protection can be poured onto you. Is this what is meant by Practical Magic? 😉
