January 2016 Major Retro Action

January is chock full of Retrograde ReTREATS, yummy. 

JAnuary Retrograde Planets Tara Greene

MERCURY  enters  AQUARIUS January 1st but wont stay in the revolutionary zone for long turns

Retrograde JANUARY 5 for the first of FOUR Retrogrades this year. One more than usual. 

  1. January 5 @ 5:05 am PST/ 8:05 am EST from 1 degree Aquarius back to 15 degrees CAPRICORN on Jan. 25. We need to rethink, review and retool and finish off some projects before we can move ahead. This is a difficult aspect as MERCURY AND MARS are square to each other and this will not be easy. will write separately.

 2. April 28 Mercury Retrograde @ 23 Taurus  – May 22 @ 14 degrees Taurus. 

 3. August 30 Mercury Retrograde @ 29 degrees VIRGO conjunct Libra. September 21 @ 14 degrees Virgo.

4. December 19  Mercury Retrograde @ 15 degrees Capricorn, turns Direct January 8 2017 @ 28 degrees Sagittarius conjunct the Galactic Center. 

MARS ENTERS SCORPIO Jan. 3 March 5th.  Red is the New Black , Game of owns 

MARS GOES HOME and the action is all about power, who owns what,  sexual transformation, resource changes and major deaths and rebirths. The Times they are macho, sexual, in warrior Mode for whatever your cause is. Fight the good fight.. Energies goes deeply underground, into heavy power games and soul territory. A time of clandestine secrets and great investigative skills. Everything is the new black. People will be defensive, goth-like, manipulative controlling and into powering-over others who are on the lower end of this vibration. 

This is a more sexual and personal, less karmic but still intense revisit of Saturn’s transit through Scorpio. 2014-2015.  A second CHANCE, a Second coming.

 Use this time really well to go deeper than you ever have before and route out all the demons, all the stuck crap all the doubts, fears, negativity- all the illusions. You will have most of 2016 to do deep soul work as ..

HEADS UP! MARS turns RETROGRADE April 17 @ 8 degrees Sagittarius, turns direct June 29/30 @ 23 degrees Scorpio.  

January  7 JUPITER TURNS RETROGRADE @ 23+ degrees VIRGO until MAY 9 @ 13+ VIRGO. 

JOvial Jupiter needs to back track and clean up anything he out of place before he can move ahead. Again take this time to retool a very major plan, book, website, job search, lifestyle change, diet, community, travelling, teaching and re-dedicate yourself to honor your life’s mission. 

January 8 Mercury re-enters Capricorn 

Jan 8 VENUS conjuncts SATURN in Sagittarius at 12º  @ 8:11 pm PST/ 11:11 pm EST !!!

I will be doing ceremony for sure. 12 degrees Sagittarius is exactly conjunct to my natal Moon so this is a very powerful time for me and everyone with planets, ascendant or angles at this degree.  JOIN ME for in ritual. Please send email if interested.

A great day to sign contracts for artists, get engaged, go back to school and book travel plans. 

 JANUARY 9 New Moon at 19+ º Capricorn.

It’s a CARDINAL CROSS PLUTONIC New Moon with Pluto Moon and Sun conjunct within 4 degrees,and squared by URANUS, Trined by JUPITER and sextiled by CHIRON. 

JUPITER Retro and the NORTH NODE align @ 23 degrees VIRGO . 

Here is John Sandbach’s symbols for 23 degrees Virgo 

Virgo 23. A library is burning. A man therein continues to read. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Receptive

Degree Angel: Reiyel (RAY-ee-YEL) Removing Hatred, Liberation, Helps to remove obstacles and impediments, and to live in a universe without boundaries)

You are not about to allow anything to stand in your way. No matter how chaotic life becomes, and no matter what crises may arise, you are able to follow through on your agendas and hold to your center. When enough is enough, though, and its time to change or shift focus, you have the ability to do this as well.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Giant cacti blooming in the desert.” Just as the man of the Omega Symbol refuses to have his reading interrupted by the fire which has broken out in the library, the cacti will not allow their desire to bloom be stopped by their harsh environment. This degree has the ability to thrive and blossom in harsh conditions and/or unsupportive environments. It will find what it needs, figure out a way to sustain itself, learn what it is driven to learn, and bring forth its own unique wisdom, even if this takes some time. This degree is about the deep and thorough assimilation of specifically required wisdom that eventually allows the self to know and be who it is.

Pleiadian Symbol: A sinuous woman in black who is an adept in cat magic.

Oh I like here. The Egyptian Goddess BAST. 

Azoth Symbol: An alchemist in a cave digging out a shining black vein of hematite. OOH get some hematite very grounding. 

Seed degree: Sagittarius 30. By time traveling a man takes a photograph of dinosaurs. (Omega Symbol). When we can tap deeply into the past we lose our sense of urgency, for we become aware that the reaching of our goals is inevitable, and that, on a deeper level, we are already there.

The completion of a large Persian rug. (Chandra Symbol). When we come to the end of anything, we realize that the completion always constitutes a flowering of some sort, and is an affirmation of life.

Fulfillment degree: Leo 15. An ancient text, long kept secret, is revealed to the public. (Omega Symbol). Maintaining our focus and learning to be undisturbed by seeming crises, we are able to foster great revelations.

A woman with many different colored rings on her fingers. (Chandra Symbol). When we set our mind on thriving, even in the most difficult of situations, we draw to ourselves those energies which will enhance and strengthen our life force.

That’s just the first 9 days of 2016.

  1. Hi Tara I am watching your appearance on News for the Heart. I have been reading all of your posts every day lately but on my phone, which doesn’t allow me to ‘like” them. But I have liked every one! What will you focus on in your ritual and what time will you do it? I would love to join in as I need to do some smudging and ceremony at my house as well. And now that I have gotten through the holidays I need to get back into the groove of doing what I like to do instead of what I have to do! Lol
