Hard core Alchemy Astrology by Tara Greene

Hard Core Alchemy Astrology August 24. This is a very heavy karmic day.

Mars Saturn Conjunction Tara Greene

MARS the warrior planet, of passion, sex, spontaneity, anger and fires, conjuncts SATURN, Lord of Time, Death, taxes, religion, foreigners, and cold hard reality.  They also meet up with ANTARES, the rival of Mars/ aka Archangel Uriel  @ 9+ degrees of SAGITTARIUS.

In astrology terms it could be labelled the WORST ASPECT DAY of 2016. Remember that some of the best days are coming up too. Mars and Saturn are considered to be  the most”afflicted” planets. Their conjunction is the heaviest of the heavies. Traditional astrology would tell you to stay home, stay safe, stay out of trouble. An earthquake just hit central Italy.  The danger of religious wars and terrorist attacks is on Red Alert.

Very synchronous is the fact that Destroying=Mars, History= Saturn was just made a War Crime and Saturn in Sagittarius is the law. 

SAGITTARIUS in the TAROT is governed by card # 14 called TEMPERANCE/ ALCHEMY or ART in the THOTH Tarot deck I use. Alchemy means turning Lead= Saturn into Gold = Light. This is the highest expression of Mars/Saturn in Sagittarius.

The Saturn-Neptune square is also coming to a head, exact September 10th =9/10/9  in Numerology @ 10+ degrees SAGITTARIUS/PISCES.  This is one of THE MAJOR life lessons for all of us in 2016. The first SATURN-NEPTUNE Square occurred November 26, 2015 @ 7 degrees and the 2nd was June 17,2016 @ 12 degrees SAG/PISCES. What tests of reality versus your dreams have you faced?

Saturn, time Astrology Tara Greene


WHAT IS REAL AND WHAT IS AN ILLUSION? That is a big philosophical question. These planets are extremely aggressive-Mars and defensive Saturn. They speak of low tolerance for those of different religious backgrounds; of walls against foreigners. We can see this being enacted in the world by A Mr. Trump and as Russia and the U.S. seem to be facing off with some cold-war nuclear tests. This is extremely dangerous. 

The NODES of the MOON are also in play with the SOLAR ECLIPSE SEPT 1 at 9+ degrees VIRGO squaring this MSA conjunction. These are fated degrees. This is a prelude to the eclipse.

What are we willing to die for? What ideals, people,places, things would you do anything to defend and preserve?

Mars is spontaneous and Saturn is patient. Hurry up and wait is the energy here.  Let’s see what the symbols say.

THE SYMBOLS for 9+ = 10 degrees SAGITTARIUS  from John Sandbach

“Sagittarius 10. A man being followed by a spaceship. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Inspired
(Degree Angel: Lehahiah (Lay-HA-hee-YAH) Forget Thyself, Obedience)

This degree is constantly being invited to embark on journeys and adventures. If it refuses these offers they will not go away but will continue to pursue the person wherever {s}he goes. The way out of this stress is to give in to the adventure, for it is actually the heart that is calling, and the true self that wants to be found.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A star turning many different colors.”

You tend to find one thing that you become fascinated by, and then as you behold it steadily you see many different nuances and facets within it – it becomes to you a symbol of the whole world. You feel that as you look at it, it looks at you, that you are being pursued by it, just as the man of the Omega Symbol is being followed by the space ship. This fixity and obsessiveness is your natural way of being, and if you give yourself over to it and set the intention that you wish to learn anything and everything from this experience that will benefit you, it will give you more and more. The challenge here is to take it all in, gradually as it comes, over time, and to not be afraid to move in closer to this source of light, for it is the universe’s gift to you, as well as your gift to yourself.

Azoth Symbol: God worshiped in the form of a smooth, featureless stone.

Seed degree: Cancer 27. A book of strange and imaginary prophecies. (Omega Symbol). When we tune into the tremendous possibilities that surround us, we draw to us those forces that can help us to actualize the ones we need most to bring into reality.”

These are really beautiful symbols. Meditate them, see them in your mind’s eye and ask to know more about their meaning for you.

To find out how these Heavies affect you, look at where 5-15 degrees SAGITTARIUS is and the aspects between any other planets to those degrees. They are in my 1st house and M.S.A. are smack dab between my Sun and Moon exactly and squaring my North Node at 5 degrees PISCES. I am feeling sick at the moment and really exhausted. 

This is a day to be very, very careful and mindful. The Moon will still be in TAURUS and all of the energies from the Moon to other planets are easy and positive which definitely helps us to remain grounded, realistic and practical.

MARS is anger, competition, testosterone. Terrorists- specifically in Sagittarius; explosions, competitive, rambunctious, spontaneous, fiery. SATURN is limitations, obstacles, taxes, testing karma. It is weighty, maturing; endings. Saturn IS physical reality. It is depressing, makes us feel old, everything feels too hard, cold, and uncaring. Saturn is the stern Patriarchal father archetype, the manipulative, testing God of the Old Testament.

On the other hand;  Mars rules Scorpio, Saturn rules Death and karma BUT they are in Sagittarius, the most optimistic, and faithful sign of the zodiac. Mars’s aggressive sexual spontaneous energy urges us to be strong and soldier on in our quest for Sagittarius Truth and Higher wisdom.

The sign of Sagittarius, the Centaur half beast/half human teaches us to learn through our vulnerability by owning our woundedness as a process to become healed, whole shamanic initiates, healers and teachers. Saturn will test us hard. It won’t be easy, no quick fix. Patience perseverance and discipline are key factors to accomplishing your tasks. 

SAGITTARIUS is the sign of travellers, gypsies, metaphysicians, philosophy, and humor. Most important of all Sagittarius traits is the gift of humor. In the darkest time of the year in the Northern Hemisphere, Sagittarius comes riding in to bring us a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel. We  hope that the days will get longer that winter will not destroy us. Faith is Sagittarius greatest gift too. Our faith is being tested now. Ultimately the Universe will have the last laugh on us. We better laugh with it. 

Please share widely. Share your Tests and illusions that must be let go of now.

  1. A man murdered 5 people with an axe in my hometown. It was 2 days before the exact conjunction.

    I looked at the man’s chart the best I could. All I could see was that this conjunction opposed his Jupiter and trined his north node.
