Beltane celebration of Fertility,fire and fairies

Beltane celebration rituals begin tonight April 30. It’s Walpurgis night, the night before May 1st, Beltane.
SACRED PHALLIC CELEBRATION FESTIVAL 
Beltane Wicca Pagan, May 1st Tara Greene

Beltane Wicca Pagan, May 1st Tara Greene

Light the fires of passion, as this festival celebrates love, conception, fertility, and the power of the masculine phallic force of the horned God to initiate new life in the Goddess.
The ancient God Pan is ready to mate with the Goddess and impregnate her. This is a very ancient night of celebrating the “Heiros Gamos” or SACRED MARRIAGE between the Goddess and the God, meeting in the fields, or in the woods to honor fertility and new life.
Setting new intentions on this night is very powerful.
MAYPOLE 
The MAYPOLE is the phallic symbol and the participants weave their ribbons around as they dance the spiral dance of time and our interwoven connectivity with all our relations on MAY day.
 
This is one of the major cross-quarter days in the year. We are half way to summer in the northern hemisphere and the veils between the worlds are thin.
The FAE or fairies come out and dance in magic forest circles and all of our ancestors are close be. Beltane celebrates fertility, and seeding new intentions with magic passion and light. It is a time of joyful invocation, healing, and beginnings.

Beltane is the time to plant all your seeds for future endeavors you wish to actualize and harvest at the end of summer.
Invoke the spirit of these intentions in the time of TAURUS, an earth sign.
Participants light the Beltane fires traditionally on hilltops and jump over it for purification.

the VEIL BETWEEN THE WORLD’S ARE THINNEST just like at Halloween or Samhain, the energy is the same. The Faery Queen goes out riding in the woods tonight.

Dancing  around the MAY POLE is an ancient fertility celebration of the maiden and the horned god who would meet in the dark, make love as strangers, embodying the God and Goddess.  

This is the night when Maidens would go wander in the woods, as FLORA, the flowers, NATURE SPRUNG newly born, maiden has nothing to do with virginity or marriage as they are simply young, and eager to mate, as they are in touch with natural sexuality, Nature’s rhythms, to give themselves to a stranger in the woods, the Green Man, also called PAN to the Greeks,the Horned Stag, called Cernunnos, in Latin, he is raw male phallic, sexual energy, virile and youthful. 

 CERNUNNOS the horny man

horned God beefcake

If a man had been created in the horned God’s image

he would be free to be wild, without being cruel,                                                                    angry without being violent, sexual without being coercive

spiritual without being unsexed,and truly able to love.” – Starhawk, The Spiral Dance

READ MORE about BELTANE -http://www.taratarot.com/id175.html

 Children conceived this night are considered to be magical and to belong to the realm of FAIRY as in The MISTS of AVALON. The maidens do not know the man they mate with in the sacred Marriage ritual.

Couples would also take vows to be in relationships for a year and a day, sort of test driving a relationship  to see if they are compatible.

It is considered unlucky to marry in MAY as this month is dedicated to the wedding of the GOD and the GODDESS  alone.

 Another important custom is bathing in dew gathered before dawn on Beltane Morn, your beauty will flourish throughout the year. Sprinkled with the dew insures you of health and happiness. Or drinking from the well before dawn of Beltane is also good luck.

 Leftover Food from May 1st eve should be left out for the fairies.

We will light our fire tonight. Wishing you all a Blessed Beltane. 

I will be doing a live Tarot card reading broadcast tonight on FaceBook on the Cosmic Intelligence Agency Page at 9:00 pm EDT/ 6:00 pm PDT/ 12:00 am GMT

Healing with the cosmic horses

Sagittarius by Garland Tara Greene

SAGITTARIUS by GARLAND 

Under a nurturing MOTHER MOON in CANCER, the FATHER figure of the Zodiac, stern Saturn/ SATAN rides a pale horse in Sagittarius as Death/ Father time. Saturn squares off with CHIRON the Wounded healer shaman in PISCES on the 30th.  It’s a healing crisis of cosmic proportions. 

Chiron in PIsces painting Tara Greene

CHIRON and Achilles by James Barry

The SAGITTARIUS symbol is the Centaur with the bow & arrow aimed at the Galactic Center. Chiron is also a Centaur, a mythological archetype who was a healer and a great teacher who was half immortal, half human as well as half horse. He was linked to an actual human teacher healer. 

Saturn at the Galactic Center is aiming towards itself. There is a mirroring that as above, so below and as without- meaning outside of oneself, so within. 

“Your calling my name is My reply.
Your longing for Me is My message to you.
All your attempts to reach Me
Are in reality My attempts to reach you.
Your fear and love are a noose to catch Me.” – Rumi

from Chanting the Name: 

There is  a huge transformational healing crisis going on. Let the grief and the fear and the sorrow and anguish out. Let it have its howling voice heard in the anguish of the winds. Curse your father or your mother if you must to crumble the crust that has kept your heart safe.  Rail and rail, spit on those who would reduce the earth to rubble, those who have harmed you or those you love. Scream at the injustice, tear your hair. Release your addictions. The purge is a healing thing. Feel it all. As Joni Mitchell wrote in a song. “DON’T INTERRUPT THE SORROW.”

The MOON trines NEPTUNE in PISCES in the evening

at sunset, sit,

after all the tears have been shed and your throat is cracked from screaming and crying. 

Sit and meditate quietly by a tree if you can, by a stream, under the sky, with mother nature.

Meditate and pray, you don’t have to be religious,  ask the Great Mystery to show you a sign, send you a message and lift your spirits.  Wait. 

The Cancerian nurturing moon squares expansive Jupiter at nighttime.

You should feel more balanced and comforted. If not, bring yourself into balance in a natural way. Take a bath with lavender oil, or rose oil, epsom or Himalayan salts. Wash away the pain layers. Rebirth yourself.  Or imagine it.  We are all feeling this grief, honor it. Taste your cleansing tears. They help us rebirth ourselves. 

In 10 days on the 9th is one of the most positive days of the year.

GEMINI by JAKE BAddeley APRIL 29 Gemini MOON keeps us light in mood and feeling like social butterflies. This is a pleasant day for socializing and meeting and talking to new people. 

The Moon quincunxes Pluto at night 

Nazi dreams, nightmares and ghoulish entities may appear. This is a collective fear shadow. 

Moon sextiles Mercury and Uranus in ARIES 

Good for sparkly conversations and unusual points of view if you like to debate things. Rehash some old ideas and polish them up. 

Moon squares CHIRON in PISCES in the afternoon

Being innocent or immature doesn’t mean you don’t feel vulnerable or hurt deep down.Talk about it, share your views helps others to establish intimacy and trust.

GEMINI Moon opposes SATURN in SAGITTARIUS 

Saturn Retrograde always poses serious blocks. Saturn makes us mature. Brainstorm any long term plans for education, traveling, learning resources and for asking big questions. A teacher of spirituality, metaphysics, languages, philosophy, justice or religion may be fascinating to you. It’s a good time to read or to hear a lecture. You want to exchange ideas and points of view.   

Moon is void of course from 2:28 pm PDT until 6:48 pm PDT

Moon enters homebody loving, nurturing, sentimental, CANCER.

CAncer Moon astrology Tara Greene

This is a stay at home, cook a homemade meal, relax and enjoy energy. You will be feeling more moody and emotional. Visit family, call your mother or be with your children or those who support and love you and who make you feel safe. Comfort and emotional security come first. Home improvement tasks are enjoyable during the Cancer Moon. It’s also good for gardening. Take a long relaxing healing bath. You know how intense the energies have been. 

Moon squares VENUS later in the evening

This can be a romantic, spontaneously charged evening. Women are feeling independent. This gives the masculine energy a chance to be passive and supportive of women’s strength. 

The Cancer moon energy continues all weekend in GMT. 

Nourish yourself on all levels.

Karmic Cosmic Healing Crisis, Saturn Square Chiron

Yah, I am feeling pretty overwhelmed by SATURN, sitting at the Galactic Center, the great black hole, the void, moving up to an exact square to CHIRON the Wounded Shamanic Healer on April 30 at 27+ degrees PISCES. We have been feeling this approach for weeks now.

Saturn the TAX MAN, Father Time, the PATRIARCHY, D. Trump and his ilk, planet of limitations, earth plane reality, testing, obstacles, maturity is hitting me pretty hard. CHIRON is where we are the most vulnerable and also where the greatest healing is.   That’s enough thanks. 

If you have planets at 27 degrees SAGITTARIUS or PISCES or VIRGO or GEMINI you are feeling this affect the most intensely. My Natal Mercury is at 27 degrees SAGITTARIUS.  The whole cosmos is being affected. 

Saturn square CHIRON

every thought I think is being weighed down by Saturn’s heavy- literally leaden, weight. It is depressing. I can’t pretend to be up when I am not.  

Saturn in Sagittarius governs the truth, higher truths, courts, teachers, higher education, traveling, foreigners, its all in the news. 

Saturn and CHIRON are bringing us a KARMIC COSMIC healing crisis. Chiron in PISCES is also very empathic and expands our natural telepathy. We are dreaming each other’s dreams. 

Chiron in PISCES is also very empathic. We are feeling the wounds of everyone who is hurting. All the children who were stolen and traded in sex trafficking, the child marriages, the beheaded gays, the stoned women, those killed by terrorists, any kind of violence, rape, bullying, abuse, emotional, physically and spiritually, we are all one and feeling each other’s pains. The laboring women, the dying, the sick. Any religious intolerance is spiritual intolerance. Any harming of one harms all. It is enormous.  I just want to cry and cry. 

The crying helps us to make real, to contact, to hold, to touch, to feel our pain personally and collectively. That is SATURN’s job. The spiritual and the physical are two halves of the same coin.

Justice needs to happen. There are dark evil forces in the world. Some people are psychotic. Some hold grudges for lifetimes and lifetimes. Those who torture were themselves tortured. Forgiveness is important but not until the grief is fully allowed to run its course. Making amends is necessary. This is like a Humans anonymous crises. We can’t understand it all. But we must look to the higher teachings and higher spiritual realms for answers. 

My husband was talking about the Lords of KARMA, Saturn’s realm. He was saying that when you die your life review is a trick by the Lords of Karma to make you feel guilty so you will be fooled to re-entering the earth plane which is a prison. My old teacher Stuart Wilde whose teachings I really respected said that too. Earth is a prison planet and really there are much more beautiful, rarefied, heaven worlds which we remember from being there in the stars, that’s why we are always searching for our real homes in the cosmos. The answer to the Lords of Karma is to say to them. “I am OK with it” and I’m leaving now Bye and exit as quickly as you can for much higher planes of love.

Wherever that story originated I love it. I just sensed the smell of turmeric and fine incense appear, I have not lit incense. There is an opening in space that just gave me a physical sign. 

Just say It’s OK I’m fine with it. This is NOT DENIAL, which is also PISCES realm. Do not run from the pain, Do not run from the anguish, hurt, mortification, embarrassment, humiliation, rejection, anger, rage, frustration, depression, or ennui. Do not escape from your feelings. That is why you and I are on this earth plane. Feel it all fully. This is TAURUS season. 

Then when you have cried or raged or bathed in it, cleansed it, done ceremony with it, given it back to the mother earth to her molten core. Then you can be OK with it. But it doesn’t mean you don’t act. You don’t do, you don’t work to improve it. 

We must collectively denounce #pizzagate, demonic practices, corporate rape, racism, sexism, ignorance, police brutality, secrets, control, power cabals, the Federal Reserve, the IMF, toxins, animal abuse, child abuse, the injustice. Let me know how you are doing. 

INSPIRATIONAL CARD

Knight of Cups Thoth Tarot Tara Greene

 

The KNIGHT or KING OF CUPS THOTH TAROT, PISCES 

Ah the Tarot, always in synch. This is the Knight of Cups, governing 21 degrees of Aquarius to 20 degrees of  PISCES. This is like the image of CHIRON in PISCES himself. 

In the Tree of Life, this card is specific Fire in the world of Primal water. Water is the substance that represents the unconscious mental world. This card personifies the motivational force of fire or spirit which activates the currents of the unconscious.  STIR IT UP 

The Crab which rises from the HOLY GRAIL cup, symbolizes Cancer, ruled by the Moon which directs the flow of the tides externally and internally, especially women’s moon time. The Crab also symbolizes the Ancient Egyptian Goddess Isis, known as Stella Maris, the Star of the Sea or the womb of the world, the collective unconscious material. 

This card is related to the 2nd Sephiroth Chokma, and the High PRIESTESS in the Tarot is related to this placement as well.  The 2’s always symbolize balance. 

This card symbolizes clarifying one’s emotional intentions. The green Knight, the male is dedictaed to honoring and protecting the Holy Grail and the Divine Feminine. He upholds the virtues and teachings of the womb, of the Great Mother first and foremost. 

Be clear about what and whom you serve.

Starting over, Venus in Aries again Astrology

I felt that Taurus New Moon energy to be incredibly exhausting. Whether it was the after effects from the Coronal Mass ejections from the SUN from days ago or simply the stodgy TAURUS moon making us slow down and smell the roses or VENUS at that last critical 29th degree of PISCES cleansing a myriad of karmic emotional baggage or ALL of the ABOVE combined. Let me know how you felt.

April 27

Nice earth trine to PLUTO and the moon in the early a.m. EDT

Moon sextiles Chiron then VENUS in PISCES

This makes it easier to feel where we have stored the pain. A good day for massages and I am going to get a lymphatic drainage massage through a barter I am doing with a client. Yay. I can certainly use it. 

One argh-y inconjunct from SATURN in the middle of the day can add to your frustration. 

Mercury is STILL RETROGRADE, of course. I saw a character on a TV series called The Foster’s that my daughter has me watching with her say. “Sorry I am late Mercury is Retrograde.” said one of the characters. I laughed. It;s part of TV culture now. The show is pretty relevant,  aimed for teenagers. 

SAY BYE BYE to VENUS in PISCES

Venus and Mars art Tara Greene

Joachim Anthonisz. 1566 – 1638 MARS, VENUS AND CUPID

VENUS in ARIES is a FIERY warrior Goddess, like DURGA on her white Lion, or Quan Yin and her dragon {who appeared to me in a healing ceremony}. Like Ancient Goddesses Diana or Athena, Goddess of War, Brigid- she is fierce, Durga Page of Wands/Tarot card reader Tara Greene

Like All the new female superheroines, SUPERGIRL, Xena, Wonder Woman, Katniss Everdeen,  she is fierce, fearless, strong,a risk-taker who fights back and Demands HER RIGHTS! She belongs to no man.

The recent Women’s march, the largest single day march ever in the entire world is just the beginning. As the Dalai Lama said “Western women will save the world.” We will. Never mind trump and his bible thumper cronies. Women will demand their rights to choose their own ways and their freedom and will not tolerate any man, religious belief or outside authority trying to control them at all. When millions of women get together with PUSSY POWER watch out guys.

Venus in Aries chooses everything for herself and she would rather be alone, like LILITH than compromise.  Most men can’t walk in those mile high stilettos that many women force themselves to wear but women sure can put on their Nike running shoes and go to war like Goddess ATHENA NIKE who they are named in honor of. 

Mars and Venus will conjunct on October 5 where they will be incredibly close together, separated visually by only 13.2 minutes visually. This will occur at @ 19+ degrees of VIRGO.  MARK that date down in your calendars and check out where the “sacred marriage” will occur in your natal astrology chart. 

VENUS and MARS in the same sign throughout 2017 

Venus and Mars are in Pisces from January 3, until January 28, 2017.

Venus and Mars are in Aries from February 3, until  March 10, 2017.

Venus and Mars are in Leo from August 26, until September 5, 2017.

Venus and Mars are in Virgo from September 20, until October 14, 2017.

Venus and Mars are in Libra from October 22, until November 7, 2017.

Super New Moon in Taurus, Dance me to the end of love

The SUPER TAURUS New Moon at 6+ degrees PISCES @ 5:16 am PDT/ 8:16 am EDT/ 12:16 pm GMT.

The Super MOON won’t be seen as this is a DARK or Black Moon time. The Moon is especially close to the earth making it SUPER strong. The tides are pulled higher and lower on the oceans, rivers and streams and in our hearts and our emotional bodies, and our unconscious feelings.  

A New Moon is always a New beginning and the best time to set new intentions. In TAURUS a very physical embodied sign we want to work out any physical issues and problems. We can MANIFEST, that is TAURUS’S great gift.

For women, the New Moon is traditionally the time for getting one’s period and being exactly in sych with the Moon’s natural cycle and retreating to a red tent, cave or hut. If you are bleeding or start to bleed during the three days after the New Moon, really allow yourself to experience how strongly your body is feeling the Moon’s pull on your emotions and your flow. It would be wonderful if you could go and sit on the earth or sit with your back next to a tree and allow yourself to let your blood flow into mother earth as a sacred sacrament, as a sacred gift of beauty. Mother Earth needs all women who can, to offer their healing blood back to the mother to help heal her.  This is an extremely ancient, ancient, pre-history tradition. Indigenous peoples have kept this tradition alive to this day. Or sit in a bath and allow your blood to flow in the bath and allow it to heal yourself of any residual pain or emotional issues. You can offer the blood in the water to a tree, or stream or to a house plant. Remember this ritual and your menstrual blood is incredibly powerful, sacred and healing. 

The NEW MOON is conjunct to Fixed STAR HAMAL  which originally meant the Ram { Aries } head.  It is now in Taurus. Ruled by Mars and Saturn it traditionally had difficult aspects associated with it.Those that work in business, financial and political leaders from the dark, false, lying side could show their shadow side much to their own detriment. Be patient. Their own words will trip themselves up. 

“Kabalists consider Aries the sign and constellation is associated with the Hebrew letter He and the 5th Tarot Trump “The Pope.” [Robson, p.31.] ” This also fits the imagery of TAURUS which is the symbol on the Hierophant in the Crowley deck. 

hierophant POPE TAROT Tara Greene psychic reader

TAURUS energy of the #5 Arcana, The Pope or Hierophant

This perfectly suits this New Super Moon. Taurus rules the throat chakra, where our words have the power to create universes. The POPE symbolizes that each one of us must be our own High Priests,active spiritual conduits to our higher selves or Holy Guardian Angels.  Listen deeply to your body as it never lies. Speak your truth only when you are connected to your Higher self. Work to make that connection solid, as sturdy as a tree. Root yourself deeply into the earth from where you get your sustenance. 

Mercury is RETROGRADE @ 26 degrees ARIES widely conjunct the Moon and Sun. Communications issues are still snafu. URANUS and ERIS are conjunct to MERCURY

Haven’t you noticed how wild and crazy, up,down and chaotic the energies have been? An unarmed Minuteman III, ICBM Intercontinental  Ballistic Missile will be tested April 26th from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California around 1pm CDT. This is a show of force to North Korea. 

VENUS is the ruler of this TAURUS NEW MOON and she is exalted in PISCES. She shines her love and beautiful nature best in the Spiritual sign of unconditional love. 

VENUS is at the most CRITICAL degree of the ZODIAC, the 29th and FINAL, most spiritual degree of the ZODIAC. THIS IS THE END of LOVE, like Leonard Cohen wrote, may he RIP, DANCE ME TO THE END OF LOVE.

VENUS is conjunct to wounded healer shaman CHIRON at 27+ PISCES.

This NEW MOON is about completing and setting new intentions to physically heal ourselves and the planet

Let’s look at the CHANDRA symbols by John Sandbach for deeper meaning.
“(Degree Angel: Mumiah (MOO-mee-YAH) Spiritual Cleansing, Endings and Rebirth)

This degree is aware of the vast number of possibilities in life and of the music that can arrive from all the potential interactions with the universe around it. What is to meet this plethora is the inspiration coming from inside – the music that arises from the self and is played out in lifetimes. The more we allow ourselves to flow the more what is most needed and beneficial for us will come forth from the inside as well as meet us from the outside. This is the truth of this degree.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A large halo in ring formation around the moon.” Pisces is the sign of acceptance, and here in its last degree acceptance reaches completion. So often we think we have accepted something only to find there are deeper levels to which we may go in this process. It is easy to accept what is beautiful and wonderful, but to accept all the rest, the ugly, the sad, the scary, the terrifying, that is where there is so much more of a tendency to reject or deny. This degree thinks in terms of bringing all emotions into the fold of the great and complete family of emotions, and the magic of it is finding that when all are accepted, the spiritual radiance reaches perfection, and we achieve the release for which we have been searching all along.

Pleiadian Symbol: A seer, on his back and gazing into the sky, becomes a channel for cosmic messages.

Azoth Symbol: An object of great beauty unearthed.
Seed and Fulfillment degree: 30 Pisces is its own fulfillment degree.”

 The POPE spoke in a TED talk via sattelite in Vancouver saying ” the future of humanity is in the hands of those who recognize the “other as a ‘you’ and themselves as part of an  “us.” That’s totally a Venus in Pisces phrase.

Inspirational Tarot card, pre New Moon

The day before the New Moon in Taurus, April 25. Did that Aries Moon rattle things up yesterday?

ARIES MOON, Keeps on offering up surprises and another round of familiar CARDINAL LUNAR crosses; square Pluto in CAPRICORN, conjunct URANUS in ARIES and Mercury too. Add on another FIRE Trine to SATURN. 

Fire Trines Astrology Tara Greene

Don’t give up on speaking your truth yet. With Mercury still Retro, things are dragging out.

MERCURY turns DIRECT on May 3rd. 

Moon enters earthy TAURUS in the evening prepping for the New Taurus Moon

Inspirational card of the day 

King of Pentacles Tarot Tara Greene

Rohrig Tarot Knight of Pentacles/Disks or

Known as the King of PENTACLES in the Rider-Waite-Smith deck, this card governs the 21st degree of LEO the last decan to the 20th degree of VIRGO, ruled by MARS, and the first decan ruled by MERCURY and second decan of Virgo ruled by SATURN.  In the calendar that would be August 12th to September 11/12

It is the fiery active part of the earth transitioning from Leo to Virgo. Putting inspired or fiery intelligence to practical use would be one very good translation of the meaning of this card. 

This card can indicate earthquakes and there was a large earthquake 6.9 in Chile yesterday but no reported injuries. The Recent powerful sunspot or CME’s on the 21st are always linked to earthquakes.  You may feel these more internally as physical ups and down, or deep emotions erupting within you.

The Card in the THOTH deck shows the Knight looking east. The “grass is greener somewhere else.” or he has already harvested what he needs for now standing in the tall grass and is looking into his future growth and what he will harvest next. This is a very practical card and not connected to “wool gathering” or idle fantasies as Virgo is all about hard work dedication, perfection, workaholism, and worry. 

Mercury rules VIRGO in general. With Mercury Retrograde in Aries we are definitely curbing our mental enthusiasm. 

huachuma, astrology Virgo Tara Greene

Huachuma comes from the San Pedro cactus, native to Peru and Bolivia.

This card also relates to using natural herbs and medicines. The ancients knew how to talk to the plant devas who instructed humans on how to use the properties of the plants. Terrence McKenna claims that mushroom spores from alien planets created human life on earth. Ingesting psychedelic mushrooms are what gave humans consciousness in the first place so he writes. That makes perfect sense to me and hence the flocking of people to South America to experience ayahuasca and San Pedro in South America and the peyote cactus used as a sacrament for spiritual and psychological healing.

Stay grounded, the New Moon in TAURUS will bring further embodied sensuality.
