Aries Moon warrior energy is active until Monday morning.
WARRIOR Moon trined Mercury in Sagittarius to make us tell the truth, opposed Mars in Libra,there are many arguments. Did Donald Trump really say that about making Muslims wear ID’s or was that falsely planted?
Cardinal Crosses continue
Moon opposes VENUS in LIBRA in the a.m.
This ignites the Cardinal Cross energies of most of 2015. Relationship problems?
Time to rebalance. Moon conjuncts Uranus and is in Quincunx to JUPITER in the evening.
It may be a challenge to get grounded. But I urge you to get past the discomfort zone. A good fast walk in nature will clear your head.
Moon trines Saturn in Sagittarius late last night, an inspiring open easy going night with jokes too?.
MASTER NUMBER the is the 52nd year since President Kennedy’s Assassination.
SUN ENTERS SAGITTARIUS @ 7:25 am PST/10:25 am EST
Here’s to you wise Sage’s. Those who must use their horse-sense.
Happy Birthday to my cousin Rochelle.
Sagittarius loves philosophy metaphysics history mythology religion, politics , sports, teaching. travelling and jumping on their soap boxes.
Saturn is making all of those issues heavily laden. We are bearing an iron cross from Saturn which is History and as I wrote about in the Crusades article, 920 years ago we were fighting Muslims to take back the Holy Lands. We are deja vuing the same territory again.
One cannot negotiate with madmen or psychopaths. There is no reasoning. There is a huge underlying root problem. Tthousands of young men who are disenfranchised muslims are easily lured into Extremist heroics. Most youth is disenfranchised and fed violent video games, they are easily deluded. The group born with Pluto in Sagittarius, 1995-2008 are, at the eldest 20 years old now. This entire generation would be most likely to be fighting and dying over religious beliefs.
Saturn square Neptune in Pisces
Is literally religious fantasies and delusions. These two are clashing and its all coming to a head in a long term transit. Right wing Republicans hold pretty much the same views as Islamic State folks. They aren’t shooting people yet but their values are mainly the same.
SAGES its our turn to shine. I must say I am really hot to trot with teaching, inspiring, yakking away in my hoof in mouth fashion these days. All this Sagittarius energy is invigorating. I must be carefull to hold my tongue, as I know most people are not ready to really question themselves or their beliefs and according to Evolutionary astrologer Jeffrey Wolf Green- no relation- he stated that 75% of the human race is in the herd state. That is they are not evolved enough consciously to be self-aware or to be able to break away from their given cultural and religious beliefs.
That is the first step to real spiritual autonomy and enlightenment. Your enlightenment is entirely within you. No outside authority can give you that experience.
SAGITTARIUS SOAPBOX and saturn square Neptune in Pisces 2015-2016
Bill Maher pointed out on his show, that right-wing GOP’s should not oppose taking in refugees as everyone came to the U.S. escaping religious persecution and seeking freedom.Maybe it was Stephen Colbert who pointed out that the new americans then stole the land away and destroyed and conquered the Indigenous Peoples. This is the plan so of course they are scared that someone else would do the same back.
He then pointed out that Islam is the root cause of Islamic State Terrorists, we cannot forget that. ISIL wants to impose SHARIA law which originates from Islam, even if it does not represent the original view of Mohammed. Not all Muslims are terrorists of course. According to a poll 6 million Turkish would agree with Islamic state values. Their religion and culture is much more tribal and repressive than the wests, in nature anyways. They can’t step out very easily. They never had a reformation in Islam. They really need that now. They all worship the same belief of Allah as God.
A Muslim man on FB last night pointed out that ISIL is a Muslim problem and that Muslims should deal with it. ISIL has killed more Muslims than any other source, and he cautioned the West to not be so liberal as to separate the two. I went to comment and then lost his comment. I wanted to thank him for being so rational and taking responsibility.
ISIL extremists cannot be separated from Islam because it expresses Islamic values. These are not the values of any free democratic western country. Islam’s main tenet is total control and repression of women, they are chattel, cattle and have no rights or freedoms whatsoever. I find that the most threatening. Christians used to believe this doctrine to then they’ve grown beyond this Neanderthal thinking.
Why can’t intelligent people see this? Why don’t women see Islam as a threat to all women? And all orthdox or fundamentalist beliefs?
Western culture is also decadent, so this is a very complex issue. Women in the west are still treated as inferior and used as sexual objects for men. Muslims also see women as sexual objects but cover up their women for the same reason orthodox Jews do. It all stems from men’s fear of women’s sexuality and power. Women are stronger and will always outperform a man sexually. That is a biological fact. Men always feel inadequate sexually from a dominator role model. If they worship the feminine there is no need to repress women.
Be compassionate yes, but all things must be considered in this day and age. Bring in thousands of refugees yes there are many women and children and elders. They will think more highly of Westerners more likely if you treat them with kindness. But they do need to abide by the Western liberal laws established in Canada.. It is pretty logical. We will not bow down to their god or ways of doing things and they should not expect us to. We will tolerate others co-existing with us with secular religious beliefs in public. You can go to your mosques and keep your religious values in your own home and you must respect others religious beliefs. Your beliefs do not reflect on public school sex education. The Lord’s prayer was taken out of public schools many years ago. No one should be marked by their religion. That isn’t so hard to do is it?
If you are compassionate out of white guilt, then you many be guilty and acting out of “idiotic” compassion.” At some point compassion, a Pisces ideal, is really self-destructive co-dependent martyrdom. It is an addiction and it has been the cultural role-model for 2,000 years in Christianity and is promoted as a romantic ideal, and is rampant.
MAMA MIA CULPA!
The current Saturn square to Neptune in Pisces is to teach us that
PISCES MUST LEARN SATURN’S BOUNDARIES -THERE IS NO FREE LUNCH!
Canada is set to take in 25,000 Syrian refugees. Canada is a generally tolerant country who has always been open to many immigrants, they need them. We have hardly any people. But there are boundaries that must be upheld in order to honor the values of freedom that we have chosen. They will not be devalued by future generations. Canadians need to do what the Dutch did. You want to come to this country and benefit? Sure we will help you but there is a cost. Majority Muslim refugees have not lived in cultures with different belief systems. It is foreign to them.
All Abrahamic religions believe that they are TOP DOG. TOP GOD.
How can that belief system ever respect and tolerate others? It is the very essence and root of the problem of Zionism, the Catholic inquisition and now these Terrorists.
All Muslim refugees and any refugees must agree to abide by our liberal CANADIAN laws which we voted for.
1. Equal rights for women, if your religious laws state otherwise -you will have to stop doing that and receive a cultural re-education.
2. Equal rights for gays. I know your bible considers this a sin, as do some Christians, well then those belief systems must be left at immigration if you want to pass through the gates.
3. Legal abortions. If your bible says this is immoral. You will have to change your belief systems to integrate.
3. You must tolerate other peoples religious views. None is superior to another. This is a secular society you can practice your own religion in your home but not in public, no public displays of any religious affiliations should be allowed.
4. children are also not your property to abuse.
5. No female genital mutilation. – sorry that is torture and manipulating women to be docile.
6. No macho-honour killings. That is murder.
7. No indoctrinating your children to hate anyone who is not Muslim.
8. No jihad allowed. That is murder.
If the majority of the country wants these freedoms for women, gays and secularism . Then every one who comes to that country must agree to live by those rules. Very simple. I don’t know why people think this is racist it isn’t. It is the rites that is always growing and expanding.
Mocking Jay is a big current hit. Hollywood is always leading us. The woman heroine fights for freedom against totalitarianism. We are in the same state.

Reblogged this on Grandtrines .
You say in your daily blog: Why can’t intelligent people see this? Why don’t women see Islam as a threat to all women?
Some things take longer to evolve than others but I certainly can understand it taking longer while foreigners are destroying your life. At those times wouldn’t it be natural behaviour to hold to your beliefs, your menfolk and the familiar?
ISIL may be extremists but I do not hold the belief that it is only Islam that has created these extremists. The US of A has a lot to do with what is happening with ISIL along with Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey and others. This never ending war is American made and as in the past religions have been used for other’s agendas. If anyone wants to inflame a group of people, attack their beliefs. That happens right here in Canada around may Xmas dinner tables.
Yes Kate nothing happens in isolation.Everything is in relationship to other events. Foreigners have not being involved until relatively recently in the Middle East. The Iraq invasion was early 1990’s. The Muslims themselves have been fighting Sunni’s to Shi’ia since Mohammed died in the 7th Century. This is an ancient battle for who has the direct line. ”
Yes the U S of A through the CIA was complicit in backing most of South America’s dictatorships, drug trafficking and all kinds of other things in the name of defending democracy when only trying to grab land water and mineral assets and stirring up trouble because the arms industry is one of the most profitable in the world. Yes i dont mean that it is only Islam itself, I was simply focussing on the refugee issues and our own rights and laws. thanks for your input.
The list of Canadian laws mentioned in your blog makes my Capricorn sun, Sagittarius ascendent, and Pisces moon all under attack at the moment long for a rerun of when Christians came to North America and did our level best to destroy the Indigenous peoples. Had we taken the opportunity to learn from their beliefs I don’t believe we would be worrying about our survival on the planet right now.
I totally agree, I wish the pilgrims in America had respected the Indigenous Native peoples who helped them when they first arrived.I wish America and Canada respected indigeneous beliefs in worshipping the earth, comunining with the spirits which are alive in everything and creature. Leaving no major footprints. Yes the native traditions that I studied stated that there were two SACRED LAWS, that everything is born from the Feminine, and nothing should be done to harm the children. That about sums it up for me. And yes our culture would not look anything like it does today and our survival would not be threatened.Neptune in Pisces is spiritual idealism and Sagittarius is also idealism. Saturn in Sagittarius is the past. If we don’t learn from history we continue to make the same mistakes. We could potentially radically change our culture to adopt those ideals too. It all boils down to the philosophy of how you see the world. A female centric position world view is a loving, nurturing caring family type of world. we are all one family. There are no other religious beliefs attached on top of that.
You asked what do I think? I think wow and thank you and giving me more food for thought and will pass on and pass on. I kept saying wow, wow, and wow as I read this. hugs, bbs
i can’t help commenting on the world’s state. I may offend some people with these views. I do respect everyone to have the right to practice what they believe as long as they harm no one else. What is the agenda behind those beliefs is more important. We have to look at a very long history to understand why we are seeing this in the world today.
I really appreciate and totally agree with your Sage logic and wisdom! Thanks for speaking out and being so honest and courageous!
Happy Birthday week and Best Wishes!
I a a little hesitent but as I said all of this Sagittarius energy is making me open my big mouth up to speak my truth. I understand that this is not everyone’s truth. I may end up putting my hoofs in my mouth. I am OK with that. I do not mean any harm. I am more interested in waking people up and not buying into the prevalent media dogma. thanks
Dear Tara, I love your posts! They are full of wisdom and worthy of sharing. However, may I suggest you get someone to proofread for you. There are so many errors in grammar, punctuation, spelling and typing that it becomes distracting for those of us who write also. What should come across as incredible wisdom instead tends to come across as less than educated. I hope this does not offend you, but trust you will consider my suggestion in the spirit in which it is given. Blessings… Lorraine Date: Sun, 22 Nov 2015 11:31:19 +0000 To: firstname.lastname@example.org
hi Friends of starlight. Yes I know I have my own wacky way of writing and punctuating and running on. I never cared for grammar when I was in school.I loved to write since I was a child but did horrible in grammar. I just wanted to break the rules. I know this. I am also usually writing late at night on the fly. I appreciate your honesty. I do spell checks and ignore corrections on purpose. I am playing with language. I didnt think that this would be taken as less than educated.If you know os a proofreader i woudld appreciate it. I write directly on my blog but could write in Word and have it summarized. Ok point taken. Thanks for caring, TARA
I question the validity of terrorist attacks being solely the actions of religious extremists. Based on alternative media sources I have read, there is evidence that they are just puppets in the elites warmongering for profit schemes.
We can keep cutting the heads of the hydra but more will keep springing into place because of the money backing that creates them.
absolutely I know there are other factions agitating for their own purposes. I was simply picking up on an article I read by Bill Maher whose viewpoints I respect and also something I had read on FB which started me thinking in that direction. We are all puppets in the elites, it has always been that way. The big shocking wake from Saturn square Neptune up is for the masses to realize this and revolt against all dogmas. Religious, cultural, medical, educational, political, financial, sexual.
Let the revolution begin! so that we can live from our realization that we are all connected and eternal parts of the Great Mystery. Organized Religion is a man made idea. But spirituality is our one commonality. We need to remember why we are here, and our authentic loving nature and spiritual compassion as one human species on our mother the earth.

There was a lot to think about in this blog.
I’m also thinking about equal rights for women. I am a senior woman and I have never felt unequal to anyone in my life. Could we not be more helpful to one another if we concentrated on understanding our strengths and our weaknesses? Astrology is a real valid tool for identifying those things and we could leave the gender discussion aside. I find that people that are intent on living the best life they can knowing their strengths, share them openly and can ask for help where they are weak, have always lived awesome lives regardless of their sex or their sexual preferences. I truly believe if we are on the right track there will be support. For me it is hard not to support people that are authentic and to want them to succeed and whether they are male or female makes not difference to me.
hi Kate that is great that you have been able and empowered in your life to not feel unequal. I wish every woman in the world could have such an experience and every an as well. You are talking from a self-aware, self- examined position of knowing ones strengths and weaknesses, and one who is not arrogant or defensive to not ask for help. Not everyone had the luxury of that awareness. Astrology is a valid tool. It’s meanings like the mythologies have also changed according to the prevelant mythologies of the times. Saturn was originally Feminine and not Masculine. Yes the potential in theory is there for anyone to live an authentic life and succeed.But if religion specifically states that women are inferior,”born in sin” in the Christian interpretation, or owned by their husbands in a cultural context then they are not very free. Men are also hampered in this culture too.. It is up to the individual to be consciousness enough to question everything. I mean everything that exist in their culture the history, the knowledge of what is going on elsewhere in the world. How we got to here. I hope everyone succeeds too. There are many men who support and honor women. Malala’s father is an exception in the world. Females are still treated as worthless as thousands of female foetuses are aborted every day in India and China after ultrasounds reveal the sex because of the stigma against females is still so strong. Female babies are put into dumpsters in China to this day. Millions of Muslim women have clitorectomies.This is a “religious custom” which is not in the Koran. Think about the millions of women who without anesthetic and in dangerous dirty condition have their clitorises removed by other women at puberty. This is all about men being able to control women’s sexuality. Muslims bring these barbaric practices with them into european and Western countries. Are you not aware of this? Millions of women cannot experience pleasure during sex. They have literally been castrated. In Australia, the aboriginal men used to incise their penises as a puberty right so they can bleed in honor of women, and so their penises could look more like womens’ genitalia. You got me started now. Thanks
Hi Tara. From fellow Sag Peter. Thanks as always. Just a note in response to your sentence, ” Right wing Republicans hold pretty much the same views as Islamic State folks. They aren’t shooting people yet but their values are mainly the same.” In the U.S., most acts of terrorism are perpetrated by right-wing Republican radicals. They actually have been shooting people!

Yes they are already shooting people! These (mostly) white male shooters have murdered way more times on our soil than terrorists have attacked. They don’t have an official association with the republicans, but these are the people being appealed to by republican political platforms. These extremist shooters like Dylan whatsit who shot those people in the prayer group are members of a cultural climate that is pandered to by the policies in the united states during living memory esp, these are children and grandchildren of the people who were against civil rights being passed. These are the pro guns anti immigration base. I think one reason they are acting this way because they are in the grip of paralyzing fear, effects of the Western sickness.
yes its true, I just wasnt thinking of them as a mass under a specific terrorist banner. They are also extremists though. Yes its always all about the fear.thanks for your input.
yes you are right. It is more the lone shooter,

The joys of the internet. I prefer to have these conversations in person. Writing about them can be so one dimensional. I do know about the atrocities that are going on towards women in all parts of the world and I do not in any way condone them or make excuses for them. I do question being told by our governments that we are invading these countries in order to prevent such atrocities when that is an outright manipulation and a lie. It is not as though I have never encountered others wanting to put me in a place they would like me to stay or be for their convenience but yes, thankfully I have always had the feeling that everyone is equal, and that everything is connected to every other thing.
Incidentally, your birthday is the same day as the man I’ve been married to for 38 years. He is an atheist, a non believer, I am a believer in our higher spirits, our angels, our guides. I was raised in a very religious household and yet he has been the one to teach me the most about “god”. I love the way the universe works!
I enjoy what you write, it makes me think. Why I find myself wanting to discus what you write is because like me, you often use a broad paintbrush, on a small canvas and if we have been raised in Canada all our lives I can’t imagine we have any real ideas of what it would be like to be in many people’s shoes. We only have our life experiences, we can imagine, we can be compassionate but we are always using the life we lived as our paints.
hi Kate yes its feels difficult to have a really broad conversation over the net. Everything is interpreted through a projection. It is different than literature which is poured over.
Happy Birthday to your better half then. Sagittarians are metaphysical, on a mundane level the sign pertains to religion. We are both experiencing Saturn on our Suns and the square to Neptune personally. Time to build a new dream.
As a Sagittarius I am attempting to broaden my readers knowledge base, to teach and educate and hopefully to make people think. I am a bit of an agitator at times too. Sagittarius is broad reaching. Yes I can be on my soap box and that might put some people off.
I was always against organized religion since I was 8 years old. I simply refused to belong to that club. I knew it wasnt right to feel separate or better than any other religion or people. I remember telling my mother that. I was also very spiritual which is a very personal experience with the numinous. As someone with my North Node in PIsces squaring my Sun, I also feel connected to everyone’s pain.
Yes its true being a Canadian is a very sheltered and priviledged life style.My ex-in-laws and all their friends were all Holocaust survivors so I got a sense of that. Compassion is being able to put yourself into anothers experiences.
thanks for your feedback . we can only do what we can do.
