Wild and Retro Halloween Astrology

Happy Samhain/ Halloween. Under a dramatic Leo Moon. express yourself as wildly as you wish. This is the Hallowed day when the veils between the worlds are thinnest. It is the best day to scry to commune with the dead ancestors who love us. I am going to a couple of events this day. I am doing a Halloween live broadcast tonight on ZOOM. see link below. 

Mercury is now in Sagittarius the sign of Truthers. 

VENUS RETROGRADE opposite URANUS at 0 degrees Scorpio and Taurus

Venus Retrograde opposite Uranus

This means watch out for bomb blasts, unexpected chaos, secret nasty things in kids trick or treat bags, people acting out and general mayhem.  People will be dressed in spacey whacky retro costumes. Values are askew.

Mercury inconjuncts URANUS

People’s energies will be irritable and don’t expect to be heard. 

Moon is in DRAMATIC LEO and passions run high. If there is an ancestor you wish to connect with tonight as the veils are thin just open your heart. Its ok to cry. 

The Moon inconjuncts Saturn and squares the Sun

These are harsh aspects so don’t get bummed out this is early in the day as well.

Venus re-enters LIBRA @ 12:42 pm PDT/ 3:42 pm EDT/ 7:42 pm GMT

this adds a flair of old-fashioned romance, old ex’s reuniting, and a sense of reclaiming some semblance of balance after so many heavy emotions what with 7 planets in Water signs yesterday. Be the hostess with the mostest of the spirits. 

Things should start to feel drier, and more fiery as Mercury in Sagittarius is followed by Jupiter next week. Remember Venus is Retro until the 16th.

Leo Moon inconjuncts Neptune in Pisces in the evening. 

I know it the weekday so not too many Halloween parties going on tonight. The inconjunct puts a smoke and mirrors screen up between those thinner veils making spirits a bit trickier to track. You will have to yearn more to connect with the other side. Be careful of what kind of spirits you connect with too. All kinds of spirits are out and about. Do be careful ingesting any psychotropic drugs and alcohol tonight too. May be good for Lucid dreaming

Have a Blessed SAMHAIN. See you on the other side.

Straight shooting talk, Mercury in Sagittarius

MERCURY in SAGITTARIUS  October 30/31 until January 5, 2019

This post has nothing to do with advocating for guns and for the NRA. With the recent murders of Jewish people in the U.S. plus all the horrific and unnecessary shootings that go on in the U.S. it is time to legislate common sense gun control laws in America.  I am a Canadian and we do not carry guns in this country. The ability to print 3D metal guns in the U.S and in the world is now possible as well. This is an even bigger worry as the freedom of expression law is being pulled out to defend this.

It’s straight talk all the way as the communicator and trickster God of merchants and those who communicate and message a lot enters the 9th sign gifting us all with horse sense.

Mercury in SAGITTARIUS keywords: Forthright, honest, naive, inspiring, optimistic, adventurous, good-humored, preachers, animal rights, political activists, philosophers, teachers, spiritual, sage are all keywords.

It’s a good time to plan travels, learning and higher education of all kinds.

Mercury in Sagittarius influence makes us rather scatterbrained.

Mercury in Sagittarius is related specifically to the 8 of Wands in the Tarot, major Arcana card #14 Temperance and the King of Wands as ruler of Sagittarius in general 

You will be thinking about everything all at once and want to learn more and share knowledge. Mercury in Sagittarius sets your brain on fire and is openminded. Its a good time for doing yoga, studying religion and spirituality; Foreign languages, writing, publishing, finding a guru or teacher and connecting with like-minded thinkers. This energy will help you to search for higher meaning and truth. You will not be able to lie with Mercury in Sagittarius.

No Pinocchio stuff allowed Scorpios and Gemini. LOL

Be careful because of this energy as it makes us all a bit naive. Legal matters, sports and religion are all Sagittarius topics. Voicing your opinions on political and animal rights and education will be important. Be careful not to be preachy and hypocritical. Mercury in Sagittarius wants to be “in the know” about everything.

Speak deep soul truths Astrology

October 28 Gemini Moon makes 3 inconjunct or quincunx aspects today in EDT and GMT.

A quincunx or inconjunct is a 150-degree aspect between two or more planets which are in different elements and don’t speak the same language. They no capisce.

The energy may make you feel frazzled and frustrated and unable to make up your mind and may extend into Monday.

Moon enters Cancer @ 7:27 pm EDT-Oct. 30th @ 10:42 pm EDT bringing us home.

Moon sextiles Uranus for some unexpected material or sensual energy,

Moon trines Venus Retrograde

This is a sentimental looking back energy. Your dreams may be of childhood pleasant or unpleasant memories. You may hear from ex’s and feel sentimental about the “good olde days.”

Monday’s Cancerian theme continues with a GRAND WATER TRINE

Expect to feel extremely moody and emotional. We arwe governed by our tummies during every Cancer moon cycle. Comfort food, call your mom, make sure you make your nest crib or condo safe and secure.

Moon opposes Saturn in the wee hours bringing up Daddy issues. Kids may wake up in the middle of the night having nightmares.

MOON trines SUN in SCORPIO

Always a very rich emotional overload. We are feeling the grief of those who have passed on. We are getting ready for the day when the veils between the world’s are thinnest at Witches New Year on Halloween.

Mercury conjuncts JUPITER in Scorpio in the a.m.

A great day to speak and to state your soul’s truth. Your bottom line. To get your head and your soul’s desires focussed. Go deep. 

Moon trines Neptune in PISCES

Visionary, psychic creative energy great for meditation, visualization and dreaminess. 

Mercury trines CHIRON in PISCES

The wounds of the world are so easy to feel right now. The wounded child is what needs to be healed in all of us. Now is the time to that frightened innocent wounded child out of hiding. Talk to that little child, soother her or him or whatever gender you identify with.

Golden Love Restored, Weekend astrology

October 26 Such a powerful important day as Venus marks one of her 5 Star Points as she is exactly in the Heart of the Sun at 3+ degrees Scorpio. Take time today to feel your heart which has endured so much anguish as Venus, planet/ Goddess of Love has travelled into the underworld shadows to let go of old ways, situations and energies which do not serve your highest purposes. Now Venus is in the heartbeat of the Sun, the source of all light and all life. Feel the radiance, The shining warmth, the regal glow your heart receives now. This is truly where you find your own Heart Of Gold. The pure gold of love which lights the way through all burdens and sorrows awakens within your own beating human heart. “as above, so below.” Put your hands over your own heart of gold and radiate the light through your own heart. Feel the balance of the light and dark joining and balancing.

Know this Golden precious Heart is yours to radiate everywhere and most especially to yourself.

Are you watching the World Series?   At 17 innings right now

Red Sox were established in 1901 when Jupiter planet of sports was in Capricorn where Saturn is now. The Dodgers established in LA in 1958 had Jupiter in Libra/Scorpio. Saturn in Capricorn is stronger. I predict Red Sox win

VENUS retrograde slows everything down.

Gemini moon makes things bounce from one side to the other.

The aspects were difficult at the end of Friday.

October 27

Moon squares Neptune

and many people will feel like they are still dreaming for most of the day.

Sun in Scorpio sextiles Saturn in Capricorn

a good day for great serious sex, deep dives, testing between the conservative and the verboten.

IN PDT Gemini Moon throws more of those quincunx’s at Pluto in Capricorn and then Trines Mars in Aquarius/ October 29 in EDT and GMT

This has been a heavy weekend of those pesky inconjunct aspects.

Continuing until Sunday.

I’ve gotta keep watching baseball. Blessings to you

Venus in the Heart of the Sun Cazimi

Cosmic Intelligence Agency image Venus Pentagram

Venus Pentagram Venus Retrograde Star point

October 26 @ 7;16 am PDT/ 10:16 am EDT and 2:16 pm GMT Venus is at the very heart of the SUN, called Cazimi.  If we think of Venus the Goddess of Love and Beauty symbolizes the heart itself then Venus in Scorpio symbolizes the shadow heart being purified in the Light of the heart of the Sun.

This day and point mark the inception of the Phoenix cycle where Venus is consumed in the flames. This alchemical point is a cauterizing, a burning away, a melting down,a fiery process of alchemy of dying into the Sun’s light and therefore absorbing the gift of Light and Gold that is the Sun preparing for a rebirth.

With Venus Retrograde in Scorpio, this is the point in the Dark Night of the Soul when all hope is lost, when the ego is totally destroyed and surrenders, let’s go and gives itself up to death. As the cosmic Myth of Inanna the oldest known poem It is at this very moment of touching our own mortality that rebirth and transcendence begins. 

The spark of light in the dark is the ember from which all is created is rekindled.

The last time Venus was Cazimi in the heart of the sun was during her last venus point on June 6, 2016, note the 6/6/16 significance. 

The Sun and Venus join every 9.5 months which is the length of a human gestation cycle. The Sun and Venus move from one conjunction, inferior to the next superior and so on. A constantly forming cycle creates a Pentagram shape. T Every second time the sun and Venus meet they create the beautiful pattern on Love. In 8 years the whole cycle is complete. And Venus creates a rose pattern in this cycle as well.

The Heart, the rose, and the pentagram are impressive enough cosmic symbols but Venus is also linked to the ratios of Sacred geometry the Golden Mean and the Fibonacci Sequence.

On the Tail of a Taurus Full Moon ruled by Venus which is Retrograde, this auspicious date October 26 is considered to be highly fortunate as Venus is considered to be on the Throne of The King. This makes her a Queen, a Sovereign in her own right. Venus can influence and work magic now in ways she never can. She is wearing an invisibility cloak, we cannot see her in the Light of the Sun but we know in our hearts that she is there. If you witnessed Venus in her rare crossing in front of the sun on June 2012 you will remember how powerful this was. 

At 3 degrees Scorpio you will want to circle where that degree is in your Natal chart. This is a point of New Beginnings, love rising from the ashes and the shadows. After deep psychological excavation we are given the promise of new life. It is like a variation on the Eleusinian mysteries.

A lot of this Scorpio rebirth energy is about deep self-love. I feel this energy myself and it seems to be what the world needs now Love.Venus in Scorpio is and will continue to be a very deep dark soulful journey of dismembering our egos like Inanna in the descent. Venus turns Stationary on November 16th but Venus will not bypass her retrograde degree until December 18. Venus remains in Scorpio until January7/8 2019. Venus entered Scorpio on September 9. Returns to Libra on Halloween and remains in her home sign until  December 2nd.

Spend the next few days with Venus at the heart of the sun basking in the light. feeling the warm and tenderness of the heart after the chill dark night of the Soul spent forlorn in excruciating pain, crying and wailing from loneliness from feeling abandoned and desperate. This is the point where our hearts and souls have warmed anew, where we feel that we have faith that there is indeed light and love everlasting burning from within our hearts and souls.

Venus at the heart of the sun also reminds me of Woman of the Apocalypse

The Woman Clothed with the Sun and the moon under her feet and upon her head a crown of twelve stars. She is pregnant and about to give birth. Chapter 12 of Revelations written in AD 95.

Sit proud on your throne of Golden Light. You are sovereign a Queen. Light the way of the heart for all to follow.

sending you blessings during these great times.

Retro Scorpio Season

Scorpio Season starts October 23 @ 4:22 am PDT/ 7:22 am EDT/ 11:22 am GMT until November 22.

Black is the Never out of style.

Testimony Napoleon Brousseau art, tara Greene astrology

“Testimony” by Napoleon Brousseau Oil painting. Collection of Jamie Angell of Angell Gallery Toronto

But it may be one of the slowest saddest, most remorseful and oddest Scorpio months as Venus will be RETROGRADE  in SCORPIO until November 16 when she ends her 40 days and nights journey into the Underworld from Scorpio to Libra. We will only have 6 days of moving forward in Scorpio territory. That seems unusual. 

SCORPIO is the #13 in theTarot DEATH

Mars, Scorpio’s ruler is in Aquarius and remember the red planet also was Retrograde earlier in 2018. Mars in Scorpio allows us to have a bit of detached, higher consciousness about this whole retrograde letting go and reshuffling of relationship values and needs period. 

Mars enters PISCES November 15 enhancing the deeply emotional Scorpio nature and the need to let go and allow and deep cleansing just before Venus Turns Stationary.

The Scorpio year which began as Jupiter entered Scorpio on October 10, 2017, ends on November 8th but just before that there will be a Scorpio NEW MOON at the 15th and most powerful degree on November 7th. 

Scorpio time is:

Deep sexual intensity obsession death detective work research power control finances taxes secrets transformation the soul shadows depth psychology rebirth and all that jazz

We will be talking about sex and power in hindsight this year. Expect more sexual secrets, pedophilia, sex trade, toxic masculinity, women’s rights, financial turmoil and ruthless nastiness to come out especially before and around the mid-term elections on November 6th in the U.S. { This was written a year ago BTW}

If you want to explore your souls deepest secrets through art music or movies with Venus Retro in Scorpio this is the time to stay in with Venus Retrograde and watch this suggested playlist.

Wild Taurus Grand Cross Full Moon October 24

The Full Moon at 1 degree Taurus October 24 is known as The Hunter’s or Dying Moon.

Taurus is the first Physical sign, earthy, sensuous, stable, resourceful. A sign which seeks stability and creature comforts. Taurus, ruled by planet Venus is conjunct the Sun, opposite the Moon and moving Retrograde since October 5th.

The Freedom-loving eccentric planet Uranus is conjunct the Moon in Taurus opposite Venus and the Sun is exactly squaring the fateful South and North Nodes of the moon producing a Fixed Grand Cross in some kind of CRAZY wild and crazy heart-pounding energy.

This is a Loony Lunation.  The Retrograde Venus energy governing the Full Moon indicates having to stir up the ashes,to go over affairs of the heart, old lovers, family, and friends.

look to where that first degree of Taurus/Scorpio/ Leo/ Aquarius is in your natal chart. 

A Taurus Full Moon is a moon which doesn’t like to have to go anywhere but to the comfort zone and not forwards or backwards. Taurus resistance will be strong to let go of what no longer serves the Uranian impulse for new, different, revolutionary impulses.

This is an OUT of Your Comfort Zone Moon

The Moon is trining Saturn in Capricorn which brings the energy down to the ground and keeps us fully in our bodies. This is good as Uranus’s close conjunction to the Moon tends to make one feel in our heads cool and detached. 

Lilith in Aquarius is also squares the  Taurus Moon and Uranus

Lilith in Aquarius indicates a strong rebel energy to bring in rapid radical change. 

Mars in Aquarius is squaring Mercury in Scorpio

Mars in Aquarius is detached, radical, hi-tech, freedom loving, uniquely individual and indicates a fighting dialogue or championing of the need to communicate the soul; sexual needs and desires for freedom in sexuality in expressing oneself psychologically. This issue is in the news as the story is that the Trump  Government is considering dropping the term transgender  and redefining  “The sex listed on a person’s birth certificate, as originally issued, shall constitute definitive proof of a person’s sex unless rebutted by reliable genetic evidence.” that  https://www.nytimes.com/2018/10/21/us/politics/transgender-trump-administration-sex-definition.html?smprod=nytcore-ipad&smid=nytcore-ipad-share

Ceres the Great Mother dwarf planet forms a T-square to Pluto in Capricorn and Eris

Disturbing ecological disasters may occur nearing to and after the Full Moon, earthquakes, more hurricanes etc.

Juno the Asteroid of Feminine Genius @ 29th degree of Taurus conjunct Algol opposite Jupiter

Algol has the baddest reputation of all the stars Medusa. She is a very powerful star I believe representing the Amazon warrioress which Medusa had originally embodied. I see Juno/Algol as a powerful feminine fighting energy. Jupiter is opposite Juno which is fitting as they were originally the Royal Couple of all the other Gods and Goddesses as Zeus and Hera. They are squaring the Great American eclipse of August 2017 degrees and squaring Donald Trumps Ascendant and Mars.  Marital troubles and women yelling off with their heads to reverse the silencing {beheading}.

Take time out at this Full Moon and sit and stay grounded. Be in the sensuous pleasure that is real. Take in physical beauty, anoint yourself with aromatherapy and massages. use lots of precious incense. Wear something lavish and silky or satiny velvety or otherwise lush. Indulge your senses.  Ask your gut to connect you with the Guardian Angels and review what your heart wants. Venus Retrograde rules this full Hunter Moon.

let your heart be the hunter, the seeker, the lover. This is a time to release renew and revolutionize your body your spirit and your soul.
