Happy Lammas Pagan Witch Harvest Festival August 1

August 1st, Lammas is one of the 8 stations of the Sun in the Wiccan/ pagan/ witchy circle of Nature calendar year. This is the position of the South West on the sacred wheel of life.

This is The original Burning Man Festival  where John Barleycorn the original wheat/corn man was burned as an effigy.

It’s traditionally a time of celebration of the harvest. John Barleycorn or a corn man figure symbolizing the sacred grain and most especially a sacred loaf was baked and offered to the four directions and to the earth Mother Ceres/Virgo in gratitude.

The Goddess CERES/ Demeter would be honored as the giver of abundant grains. 

Lughnasad is its other name. We are half way to the AUTUMN Equinox now. It is an Air element festival traditionally celebrated as the wake of the Sun KING, who is a star,  is dying now in the waning of his own Light. Cookie people figures and star cookies are baked in celebration.  It is time of anxious waiting, we are not yet assured of a harvest which will keep the people alive. It is a time to free oneself from FEAR.  A snake dance is created going counter clockwise, bread figures are thrown into the bonfire to symbolize the burning up of one’s fears. Then one says what one hopes to harvest.

Symbols of STARS are held up. The High Priestess would say,

“MAY THE STAR OF HOPE BE WITHIN US ALWAYS.”

This is also the symbol of the Tarot Card #17 The Star which is associated with Aquarius. We just had the Aquarius Lunar Eclipse Super Bloody Moon July 27th we are in synch.

The coveners would eat the star cookies and celebrate. see link below for more details .

Listen to Traffic’s famous ancient rendition of John Barleycorn with Stevie Winwood singing the plaintive song. I’m not sure if you can put YouTube videos on your blogs without it being spam. Can someone help me out with this?

Addictive urges are very high under Pisces Moons check in with anyone who may be feeling down depressed or suicidal. Pisces Moon brings up feelings of both isolation and the desire to escape deny and return to Souce.

                                                                         Aspects of the Day 

Mermaids Venus conjunct Neptune Astrology Tara Greene

Moon makes easy sextiles which enhances the energies between the planets and the moon’s feeling function. Uranus the planet of revolution and Saturn the planet of conservatism and hard knocks both receive this easy aspect. Think about all your options.

 

 

Moon inconjuncts SUN

Moon and Sun inconjunct each other making Pisces more reticent and invisible than usual out lit by the SUN in LEO. It’s just temporary.

Lastly, but certainly not least -a beautiful Moon Jupiter in Scorpio sexy bountiful Grand Trine makes it easy fun and intensely sacred and sexy all in one.

It’s also a special HINDU celebration to honor the Lord Shiva. If you are into Yoga or just enhancing the spiritual energy just chant OHM Nama Shivaya.

We’re almost a months end already.

The PISCES MOON energy continues all day Tuesday too. Do pay attention to your dreams. Record them. I dreamed I was going to see David Byrne playing and he will be in Toronto later this week.

The BIG BIG ASPECT is MARS squaring URANUS a very crazy making energy. MARS retrograde may have us revisiting old unexpected chaotic leaps off of cliffs into the great unknown once again.

Void of Course Moon day and Daily Card

July 29 the Aquarius moon has made an inconjunct to Venus in Virgo throwing off romantic notions hanging with friends and your dreams.

Moon opposes Mercury in LEO RETROGRADE for some communication and emotional breakdowns. I commiserate with you.

The Moon is VOID OF COURSE from 5:25 am EDT all day until 7:28 pm EDT

so its a great Sunday to just hang loose recharge your overworn batteries from the bloody lunation eclipse and do mundane shit.

the Moon enters PISCES 7:28 pm  EDT 

There are no planetary aspects between the Moon for those of us East of PDT today so use this time as a total daily emotional Timeout. You deserve it.

The Moon sextiles Uranus in Taurus and Saturn Retro in Capricorn in PDT

a nice little cosmic tickle where you are most sensuous and some benefits from your elder’s ancestors and respected mentors. Should I stay or should I go might be how it feels as Saturn definitely wants to stay and so does Taurus but Uranus wants to revolutionize everything. This can make you feel edgy and tired on that pulse.

Card of the day is a little Video

After the bloodbath Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius July 27.. how are you feeling?

Venus at Cardiff Castle Astrology Tara Greene

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have been totally exhausted by it but that’s as to be expected with a Mars retrograde and of course it was the Moon’s bleeding time obviously. A sign that women should not be ashamed of getting their moon blood or menstrual periods. 

We get a big luxurious wonderful Grand Earth Trine from Venus the goddess of women love beauty harmony luxury and the arts in usually humble budget conscious Virgo with death and rebirth master and the Dark Lord Pluto in Capricorn who unearth the soul’s richest- the kind you do get to take with you.

Unearth the riches of the anima the soul and the earth. Our bodies. we are being invited into discovering our souls choosing to be on the earth place for a reason. With Saturn and Pluto in earth and Uranus mainly in earthy Taurus for the next 7 years. we better get used to being grounded. 

All trines are easy blending aspects between planets. Use this combo of wealth and beauty to manifest more beauty more depth more psyche. 

You can listen to that Lady Gaga song to for inspiration if you like. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Nr33m1zXVE

Juno the asteroid Goddess of Feminine Genius is in Taurus at 11 degrees in a wide grand trine with CERES at 12 degrees VIRGO conjunct Venus and Trine Pluto.

Use this energy wisely. It lasts until August 4th/5h when Puto makes his next planetary aspect. 

LILITH is also standing at the 29th degree of Capricorn until August 5th

Lilith at the most critical degree encourages us to embody Liliths fierce uncompromising energies. Women need to embrace and download lilith’s energy. Her return is very important to the reblancing of the earth.

Aquarius Blood Moon Lunar eclipse Meditation

By Alfredo Garcia, Jr (Shared by photographer [1]) [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons

Aquarius Full Blood Moon-Mars Retro Lunar eclipse is symbolized by The Star #17 in the Tarot. Aquarius is associated with this card which is also considered a Wishing Card a blessing after the hard awakening of the Tower #16 which preceeds this card which destroys the ego.
The Full Moon Eclipse is July 27 @ 1:20 pm PDT /at maximum at 8:20 pm GMT.
Aquarius/ the Star is a sign of higher consciousness and cosmic awareness that we are all One and united under the Heavens. Aquarius rules the Internet, new technology, science cloning, stem cell research, cell phones collectives and social media.The Goddess Urania one of the 9 Muses is pictured on the card. She governs the study of Astrology. Uranus is the modern planetary ruler of Aquarius a masculine detached air sign of revolutions freedom technology and going “beyond” limitations and a sign which shares power with the group or tribal mind.
The South Nodal eclipses asks us to release old ideas of feeling separate alone alienated isolated and left out. We are being called to release the past and the next eclipse in 2 weeks time a Solar Eclipse in Leo takes us on the high road of the heart and being sovereign autonomous and living from the heart.
Remember that Mars-ruled Aries and Scorpio are being impacted the greatest by this eclipse as well as Aquarius and the other fixed signs Taurus and Leo 
At the Lunar eclipse when our emotions are blocked temporarily as the earth throws her shadow over the Full Moon the stars will come out of the dark and the unseen will be lit. Mars will shine almost twice as bright as Jupiter. Use this rare and special longest eclipse to ground yourself like a lightning rod. Take the higher-minded road during these intense times remember that we are all star stuff all carbon-based diamonds in the rough.
The Aquarius Lunar Eclipse  Blood Moon-Mars Retrograde MEDITATION

This rare and special extra-long Total Lunar eclipse is part of South Node Saros Cycle 129 featuring Mars Retrograde at its brightest being eclipsed on the same day.

This extra-long lunar eclipse allows us to take a long overview of our present situation here at this very powerful turning point in humanity’s evolution.

A South Node Aquarius Lunar Eclipse points us to releasing old ideas and paradigms- ones which we thought were based on technology progress “equality” and mass brainwashing.  This brings us a revolutionary occasion for radical change, to gain Higher consciousness, to expand our awareness for the whole, the group mind, and for massive growth on all levels.

As the Moon is eclipsed by the earth’s shadow the feminine physical world grounds our emotions. We become like a lightning rod. The stars come out as the Moon grows dark red and the bright night sky is turning dark and black. It is a time of great mystery and all the animals and birds will be silent during the totality which is 1 hour and  47 minutes.

In North America, we will not see the eclipse or be in the direct shadow which is where the effects will be felt the strongest but we will certainly feel its effects. This is a time for being deeply introspective with Mars Retrograde and Mercury too along with Saturn Neptune and Pluto. Mars is Out of Bounds from July 7 to September 24 the old Masculine warrior paradigm is ending. It is also repressed angry and most fiery and dangerous too. The positive side of an Aquarius Mars Retrograde is of being in service to the heart- the opposite shadow side of Aquarius which is Leo which we will get to in two weeks.

This is a time for exploring in the void the cauldron of rebirth. Aquarius is the only fully human sign of the Zodiac. We are leaving the Age of Pisces, Christianity’s symbol. The Age of Aquarius whenever it actually begins is about equal rights for all humans, gays, LGBT, men and women. 

The Water Bearer, the 11th sign, is an Air sign, not water. Aquarius’s glyph, the double lines that look like waves, are lightning bolts and symbolize the waters of consciousness and our bodies electrical kundalini energy.  Your consciousness is the Light. Many Ancient civilizations believe that our ancestors came from the stars. The Star in the Tarot, the 17th Arcana card shows this energy of the Goddess as the Stars, as cosmic vessels of divine light flowing down to the earth to quench our human cosmic desire to be connected with source.  

Aquarius energy is like being struck by lightning. The Eureka moment when the big light bulb goes off in your mind.  Aquarius, the electric sign, is the sign of uniqueness, genius, higher consciousness. Aquarius energy is groupthink, tribal mind freedom from old structures and limitations of Saturn-the Patriarchy  History and customs -even though the cosmic cop rules both these signs traditionally.

The Sun in Leo the opposite pole to the Aquarius Lunar eclipse is about self-expression, our childlike ability to play, our passions and dramas, our leadership, roles, hearts, our abilities to share power and our higher consciousness where we are all in fact ONE. We will be drawn there in 2 weeks on the next Solar eclipse in Leo August 11  on a New Moon.

This Lunar Eclipse brings to a conclusion a cycle that was begun 18+ years ago. The last eclipse in this cycle was in 2000. Previously in 1982 1964 and 1946. Donald Trump was born during a Lunar eclipse Saros Cycle 129 and this eclipse will propel him into some karma he was born to confront.

MEDITATION for the rare Blood Moon Aquarius Mars Retro Lunar Eclipse

If you’ve been doing previous Full Moon meditations gather the four candles, color related items and incense.

We are connecting with AIR and the stars. 

Smudge yourself first, cleanse the area you are in. Center yourself and BREATHE. Aquarius is AIR.

Light your four candles one by one starting in the East for fire, this is the cosmological system I use but if you are pagan you begin in the South with Fire. Always move clockwise, wherever you start. Call in the four elements and directions. Call in the Holy Guardian Angels and your own and the Angel of this Moon, Umabel {oomabell}.

Close your eyes. Go into your heart. Visualize a root chakra opening meditation.

With your eyes open or closed look up into the vault of Heaven and see the sky filled with thousands of stars. Each star represents an ancestor watching over you. Every person is connected with a star. Follow a star that attracts your attention. In your mind’s eye travel out from your crown chakra at the top of your head to it. When you reach this Star you will have a higher consciousness  perspective. Look back at the earth, a tiny blue planet on which seven billion individuals co-habit. See how tiny your issues are when faced with the vast expanse of Space.

From this higher perspective it is easy to detach from any emotions, people and situations that have been keeping you feeling stuck, stagnant or blind. Sense the freedom!  Now connect with the spiritual consciousness of the specific star. You don’t have to know which star it is. Open your mind to a new adventure, a new learning curve.  See, feel or sense the Soul of the Star, the Guardian of it, its essence. Ask its permission to speak with you. Open up to dialogue with it. You will have an extraordinary experience if you seek, ask and open your mind. You are always safe and protected.

Ask the Soul Star what you need to release to enable you to integrate your body feelings mind heart and spirit. Be patient, wait.

All you have to do is ask, be open and receive. Always give thanks and be grateful for what you may experience.  Many inventions are triggered from these stellar interactions.  From your Starry perspective make a Fixed vow that you will follow through and earth that new experience, energy, invention and freedom which you have received.  Bring your consciousness back down to earth and know that you can connect yourself anytime you wish to the Star and make wishes on it too.

CLOSING the CEREMONY

At the end of every ceremony or ritual you must thank the spirits and elements for coming to be in your circle. You must release each one back to their direction, starting in the East or South, whichever direction you began. Thank each one out loud is best, for participating in the ceremony. For example for fire. Say “Thank you Sacred Sprits of Fire for being here in my circle  in this ceremony and in my heart. I release you back to your direction with great love and gratitude. Ho.”  Repeat for water, earth and air. 

At the end of the ceremony say, “May the circle be open but unbroken. May the love of the Star Goddess be ever in my heart. Thank you. It is finished in beauty. Aho.”

Seeing Red Super Rare Retro Mars Lunar Blood Moon Eclipse

July 27 This Blood red Moon Aquarius Lunar eclipse is a super rare thing. It will be the longest eclipse of this century lasting 1 hour and 43 minutes. As Mars the red planet is Retrograde and very big closest to the earth in 15 years – a half Saturn cycle we will see it shine twice as bright as Jupiter during the eclipse as the Moon darkens shadowed by the earth and the stars will reappear from the Full Moon’s light. I remember seeing this under a blood moon eclipse in Sedona in 2016. 

Mars is directly opposite the Sun during this eclipse indicating a standoff situation. Mars is conjunct the full moon being eclipsed and all of which square Uranus while Mercury has just stationed retrograde in Leo.

Donald Trump and this lunar eclipse

Eclipses occur at similar degrees every 18+ years. These are called Saros Cycles. This is Saros cycle 129. The last eclipse in Saros 129 was on July 16, 2000. That was in the dot come bust period so another similar cycle will be recurring. The earlier Saros 129 cycles eclipses were July 6, 1982, and June 25, 1964 June 14, 1946, which was Donald Trump’s birthdate he was born during this Saros Cycle and this year promises to be HUGE for him in terms of dramatic changes as they have been 18 and 36 years ago.

Mars rules Aries and Scorpio and they will fee this energy the most. 

Aries is the warrior aspect and Scorpio is death and rebirth of the soul. The soul’s highest goal is tied to the North Node and the karmic past is the South Node. The collective evolution is tied to the North Node. The Nodes of the Moon are responsible for creating all eclipses solar and lunar. 

The eclipse is asking the old masculine warrior energy to pass away with the South Node. It is perishing the old cog in the wheel energy. 

Aquarius is the sign of rebellion and individuality within the collective. New collectives will emerge from this eclipse. This is a strange mix of high energy tensions for change with a built-in resistance to change coupled with a sluggish flaccid Mars Retrograde Mercury Retrograde and Saturn Neptune and Pluto all Retrograde.

The effects won’t happen till after Mars is direct and Mercury as well after August 27th. 

Mars Retrograde is a regressive energy. Men may be acting infantile like frustrated spoiled babies as the Sun opposes them. Old daddy issues may be projected out in anger onto women. 

GRAND EARTH TRINE

Venus is exactly trine Pluto during the Eclipses at 19 degrees in a wide grand earth trine with Juno in Taurus @ 11 degrees. This brings the inherent Feminine Genius women embody as the currency of the most value. 

Venus and Neptune are still in a separating opposition which was exact earlier in the week and Venus us sextiing Jupiter too a bountiful aspect. 

This brings a very beautiful spiritual creative energy of grounding. Visualize the world you want to see.

Saturn is Inconjunct the eclipse

Saturn represents the old boys Patriarchy club elders statesman senators who are blindly balking the evolutionary status of this eclipse. Too bad.

Saturn and Uranus are trine in Earth signs

This is a positive change aspect to the mix. Although Saturn will dig in its heels while Uranus in Taurus also resists the changes.  

Uranus squares the SUN

Tensions between should I stay and evolve alone or with others? No man is an island. Collective actions against powers that be will be the new norm. 

Path of the Lunar eclipse

The eclipse will be totally visible over most parts of central to East Africa all of  Middle East parts of Russia and India where the effects will be felt the strongest. The eclipse will not be visible at all in North America Greenland and parts of northeast China. 

Lunar eclipse path July 27 2018 Tara Greene

We will still feel it and you can watch it on live cameras on the net.

While the eclipse is on get comfy relax and breathe into it. Ironically a Lunar eclipse blocks out feelings out as the earth overshadows the Moon. The retro Martian influence will be strongest. Mars retrograde is surrendering puttin gup a white flag of Peace not fighting or running simply allowing. I. Patience is a virtue. Go within don’t try to fight it outside of yourself. Find peace within yourself first. The strong Venus earthy energy will help us.

Remember the symbol of Aquarius in the Tarot it is #17 the STAR

The Star Tarot Tara Greene Astrology

The STar The Ancient Sky Goddess Urania which rules Astrology pours her cosmic wisdom which was symbolized by water onto the earth. Aquarius is the symbol of rebellion freedom revolution. She is stirring up the waters of change. We need to dump old toxic masculine ways now.

Chandra and Omega Symbols for the eclipse by John Sandbach

Aquarius 5. Gradually the wind unearths a temple buried in the sand. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Inspired

(Degree Angel: LAVIAH (LAH-vee-YAH) Great Escape, Revelation)

Thought processes Aquarius can obscure knowledge by twisting it, misreading it, and shifting focus away from what is most important. This degree senses the profound wisdom to be found everywhere, if one can just clear away the debris of meaningless details and ignorance that have buried it. It seeks the purity of divine essence amidst the fogs of negativity, and its persistence finds it, eventually. 

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Humans worshiping an obese nature goddess.” This degree deeply believes in the abundance of nature, and knows that when we allow ourselves to be receptive to what life is offering us, we can draw to ourselves all that we need. What enhances and supports this process most is sharing this attentiveness to the forces of nature with others. This is what helps us to get back to pure spirituality, and unearths the temple of the Omega Symbol.

Pleiadian Symbol: Many generations of a family speaking to each other across time. 

Azoth Symbol: Archives which no one has looked into for many years.

Seed degree: Taurus 29.A man reaches out to touch a marble statue. He feels it smiling. (Omega Symbol). When we acknowledge what we’ve created we come back into re-atunement with our spiritual self. 

A man amuses himself by drawing strange shapes. (Chandra Symbol). Creative experimentation accesses the endless abundance of the divine mother. 

Fulfillment degree: Leo 26. In a bookstore, a chance meeting of long lost friends. (Omega Symbol). As we reconnect with spirit all positive and life supporting relationships are brought back into focus.

A fire burns at the bottom of an old well (Chandra Symbol). Attuning to the great mother we realize creative forces at work deep inside ourselves.

Remember that there will be another Solar eclipse August 11 in Leo @ 18 degrees

We will be synthesizing all of this for a while and simmering it on the cosmic thermonuclear furnaces.
