Inspirational cards, California earthquake May 28?

The energy has been pretty intense but will hopefully balance out May 28 as Moon is in Libra now until Saturday..
 
It’s just like being in labor. Take long, slow natural deep breaths. Trust me I gave birth to two beautiful children 100% naturally at home -15 years apart.
3 Big Air Trines 
Moon to Gemini Sun, Moon to Retro Mercury and Moon to Mars in GEMINI.
If you have planets in the first decan -1-10 degrees of Gemini,Libra or Aries you get the HOLY trinity effect, the pyramid, the blessings effect.
Imagine a powerful bright yellow triangle  like a shield of protection,
or a YIELD SIGN from HEAVEN
YIELD to the will of Heaven Tara Greene
 
There are some nuisancy effets Moon to Neptune and Moon square Pluto…
May 28 at 4:00 pm THE BIG ONE! a 9+ Richter scale earthquake in California.  
which would destroy the west coast, cause tsunami’s and sink Japan and change the entire world forever.
You’ve heard about the Dutch researcher Frank Hoogerbeets a software developer who has garnered world-wide attention because of his Video on You Tube. He quotes Nostradamus, 
 
“Trembling so hard in the month of May
Saturn, Capricorn, Jupiter, Mercury in Taurus.
Also Cancer, Mars in Virgo ” from French translation
 
I read through some of his research. He is a New Age  software developer. I assume this is his software which he sells called Solar System Scope. It’s really beautiful and elegant and you can rotate planets from many points of view but the alignments he speaks of seem arbitrary.
He also uses Numerology to explain the biggest earthquakes over the last 300 years and how the planets were aligned which he believes influences the Moon’s magnetic pull which in turn influences the tectonic plates. 
I agree it is all about magnetic energy. 
 
Lets pray that the big one doesn’t hit. of course but there is a weird synchronicity
Hollywood  ruled by NEPTUNE which is very active these days in its weird prescience or simply marketing genius is releasing what movie tomorrow?  SAN ANDREAS yes the Movie about the big one!
INSPIRATIONAL CARD OF THE DAY
QUEEN of Swords, LIBRA energy- which the Moon is in today.
Queen of Swords Tara Greene Tarot
My guides told me to pick another,
Princess of Swords- which is the Earth of Air 
Princess of swords Thoth Tara Greene
Does this mean the earth is affected by something in the air?
so I was nudged to  pull another card;
the 9 of swords  
9 of swords negative cards Tara Greene
the 9 of swords is one of the worst cards for being really negative in the entire deck.
The 9 of swords has MARS IN GEMINI which is where Mars is in Tropical Astrology now.
It means mental cruelty, too many ideas, too much information, over analysis, negative thinking…
we do create our realities and oftentimes these doom and gloomers create more stress than we need. 
the outcome
the 8 of swords  which is a beautiful card.
8 of swords Rainbow Bridge Tara Greene Tarot
It is Mercury in Sagittarius
communication by letters of fire- God speaks in Fire doesn’t It in the Bible? 
I cannot call God a He, sorry. I’ve been referring to God as IT since 1980.
It is a blessings card there is the rainbow bridge on it. the sign of connection from Heaven to the earth.
Sagittarius is the Galactic Center in whichever astrology system you use Sidereal or Tropical.
The Earth is in the sign opposite the Sun in Sagittarius right now 
I’d pray to be connected to the Rainbow tribe, the race of many colors and be the Rainbow Bridge between Heaven and earth.The Rainbow means opening all of your chakras. 
This reminds me of a vision I had in 1990 during a very intense Vision Quest in Northern Ontario. 
I have been hesitating on booking air travel to California for the last few weeks. Is this because my Higher Self is trying to tell me something?
To all the millions of people in California I ask you to stay calm and stay centered in your heart and with your Guardian angels. I send blessings to my relatives and good friends and teachers there. Remember we co-create out reality.
Many New Agers are also cleverly disguised rapturefanatics, the same as Bible Thumpers who want the world to end so that they think they will be uplifted and go straight to heaven or to higher dimensions.. This is a heirarchical, patriarchal, psychotic fantasy, totally fed on ego, arrogance, one-upmanship, the white shadow and ignorance.
Talk about Neptune, with Neptune in its own signof Pisces, the last sign,  these “end times” fantasies and delusions will keep on coming. 
Stay calm my friends and in your heart. Treat every moment as if it were your last.
Sending many blessings

Planning online Saturn in Scorpio redux, the Inanna journey. I will do short Cards of the day and longer articles when the aspects are happening.

Mercury conjuncts MARS May 27

We are approaching Full Moon June 2.

Inspirational Card of the Day

Page of wands Tarot Tara Greene

I can’t find who made this card

The Page, Knave or Princess of Wands are all alternate names for this card.  Modern Feminist decks show the card as a Princess, the Thoth deck did this in the 40’s.

The Page of WANDS are the Court or personality cards of Fire elements Aries Leo and Sagittarius.

The page or princess represent the Earth itself.

This card is related to Nepthy’s in Egyptian pantheon, Lilith, a firebrand,  defying authority.

The card symbolizes the earthy part of Fire. It is earnest, and physical, balanced masculine and feminine energy. 

The Page of Wands is shown as Brunhilde in Kris Waldherr’s deck. She is a Valkyrie, a mighty female warrioress, a messenger of Odin. Brunhilde defied Odin. They are death Goddesses who reward valiant fallen warriors on the battlefield by taking them to Valhalla. Similar to vulture Goddess Nekbhet in ancient Egypt.

This energy inspires one to have the courage to follow one’s own spirit and inspiration. 

It brings creativity, daring, Leo-like strength and initiative. The energy moves quickly, sparking from one thing to the next.  It can be purely physical tantric sex, a volcano exploding, lightning striking the earth. 

This energy can prove to be a problem, too much half-baked schemes and poorly thought out ideas never accomplishes anything. 

The card depicts movement, travel and inspiration from afar. Let your imagination flow. 

Trust your instincts, get out of your head.  Your feedback on this card?

Low spark of High Heeled Boys- Stevie Winwood 

Mercury Retrograde Born this way.

Are you a natural born Mercury Retrograder? 

Mercury travels Retrograde annually three times a year from 3- 6 weeks at a time. That is equal to around 1/3 of the year which is equal to the amount of sleep we need every night.

How do you know if you were born during a Mercury Retrograde?

 Go to Astro.com and put in your birth info. its free. Even if you don’t know your birth time exactly you can still find out if Mercury {or the other planets} were travelling Retrograde. There will be a small R or Rx symbol beside the planet.

Statistically 18%-30%  of the population are born under this aspect.  You are not alone, you are in a very special group. You are a very creative thinkers. Your consciousness is finally tuned. It is a naturally more intuitive and receptive way to cogitate.  

Natural born  Mercury Retrograders always think outside the box. Yes there is something naturally Uranian about them you could say. They don’t think like “normal” people. They don’t feel understood most of the time.  They stand out as creative thinkers, innovators, designers, artists, and invaluable resources as writers, philosophers and imaginations. Dostoevsky and Buckmister Fuller are in this group.

Mercury Retrograde Tara Greene

People with Mercury Retrograde take in information differently. Usually they are insecure, unsure or ignorant about how smart they are. Most Mercury Retrograde people are often labelled as A.D.D. or A.D.H.D.   Some people with this position struggle with doubts about their own perceptions. Mercury Retrograde peeps do a lot of double-checking and revising information and ideas before communicating. They would make great editors naturally. 

Of course how you express yourself, your concepts and ideas depends on which Sign Mercury was Retrograding in at birth. Check this out.

Mercury Retro in fiery Aries – A cool Hot head

is beneficial as it slows down the brash, too impulsive and reckless “off with their heads” of this placement. This allows you to not cut off the other person’s words mid-sentence. Instead of arguing you can simmer in the fire of hot ideas before boiling over. 

Merc Retro in earthy Taurus – sensuous no-bull

slows the mind down to extreme practicality. You speak very slowly, with a purposeful sensuous tongue. They can be very poetic creative and romantic. You like classical works  in literature, music and art. You are a great appraiser and appreciate fine art, wine, food and beauty. You make love with your mind.

Merc Retro in Gemini

Slows down the monkey-mind. Makes you an excellent debater, analyzer and go-between. It is easier for you to consider two possibilities and actually make up your mind about what you want. You are less of a gad-about and express yourself clearly when you want to.

Merc Retro in Cancer 

This brings the ability to be objective about your emotions, turning down the torrent to drips. You are very sentimental and always thinking of your childhood.  It is difficult for you to receive and ask for what you need. Expressing your vulnerability is important but not easy. 

Merc Retro in Leo

Beneficial as it harnesses the lower vanity and ego extravagances of Leo into a more humble modest speech maker. You may need to work on your courage. You have a big, shy heart which you may find difficult to express. You are one of those who always thinks young.

Merc Retro in Virgo

You endless go-over every detail with a very fine tooth comb. Which is a great asset for specific careers. A workaholic, you tend to be nervous and worried. You can let go of your need for perfection and let things go, this is healthier for you. You  could be extremely miserly with money.

Merc Retro in LIBRA

You would make a great event planner, lawyer, broker, matchmaker, bargainer and connection maker. You have a fondness for nostalgia. You like old-fashioned quality style in your home. You are elegant and seem timeless. You have vast friendships which lasts for many years. You can learn to trust your own decisions.

Merc Retro in Scorpio

You are cynical and suspicious and find it very difficult to trust. You manipulate everything around you. You need to learn to drop your defenses. You are a phenomenal researcher and a great detective. You see things to the absolute core in ways which no one else can. You truly have x-ray vision and no one can fool you.

Merc Retro in Sagittarius

Is beneficial as it enables you to think before you spill those all too truthful beans. Your wild side is held in check. You are extremely casual, carefree, accepting and easy-going. You can be largely self-taught. You yearn to have your own philosophy, book, outlook and to be on the absolute cutting edge of what’s new. You are always retelling travel stories. 

Merc Retro in Capricorn

You are very traditional and conservative in your thinking. You respect authority but also like to think about breaking the rules sometimes. You need to figure out how to carry out your own unique views. You are dry in your speech. You are always dreaming about being on top of the mountain. 

Merc Retro in Aquarius

Your mind has a very unique way of perceiving. You make an excellent innovator, inventor and pioneer who never misses a detail and can explain anything in myriad ways. Your concepts are extremely vast, you understand things from a large cosmic perspective. Space, power, energy, new technologies are your games. Your ideas are always ahead of their times. 

Merc Retro in Pisces- Deja vu Deja vu 

You are extremely intuitive and can combine logic and intuition easily. You can explain mystical things in practical ways. You  know how to turn your mind off and go into deep relaxed Theta states and trance out. You absorb new information like a sponge. You are dreamy creative and can tap into channeling anything.

During every Mercury Retrograde it’s your time to bask in the Retro rays.

it’s your time to be in your Mind groove. You are in perfect synch. The universe communicates the same way you do all the time now. You are in your flow review and go.

Dreams vs. Reality, Memorial day

I haven’t been writing since Thursday because I was out-of-town teaching a workshop. OMG I was so busy. I did readings for group participants all day Saturday and then had to do my workshop. It was 10 hours of not stop readings and talking. Whew. It was great, I love it, especially delivering workshops that are fun and educational, but I feel like I’m a vortex of spinning energy. There was a phenomenal group of very enthusiastic woman at the Grail springs Spa.  Thank you.

the Last week of May overview

The planets are aligned and aligning in some tuff spacey energy this week, most of it centering on planet Neptune. The tension is on at early but especially 8-9 degree of MUTABLE signs Pisces, Sagittarius and Gemini {also Virgo} this week.  If you have planets around these degrees you will feel the pressure of the squares. Take note of your birth chart. I have my Sun and Moon at these degrees.

Also this is a bit of sneak preview of BIG MUTABLE CROSS energy starting November 2015 and continuing into 2016 between JUPITER which will be in VIRGO starting August 11,2015. Jupiter Saturn in Sagittarius and Neptune in Pisces will be in a T-square which centers on the Gap between reality and illusion. I’ll write more later but you can get to taste it.

NEPTUNE is the most dreamy of all the planets, it is spiritual, creative, compassionate, inspirational, deluded, fantasy filled, the stream of the unconscious, Hollywood, Unity, wholeness, endings, camouflage, chameleons, dreamers, institutions, jails, magicians, oligarchs, the ocean, denial, drugs, addictions, genius and madness, soul mates and the feet.

Mars square Neptune astrology Tara Greene

May 25 Memorial Day in the U.S. 

Memorial day is about remebering, with Mercury Retrograde it will be a rich memorial day.

MOON enters VIRGO to keep us grounded in reality which we need.

VENUS in Cancer squares URANUS in ARIES @ 19 + degrees – Cardinal cross aspect

The Cardinal Cross energy ain’t over yet.This will surely play havoc on the world markets although the stock market will be closed in the U.S.  This aspect focus on the need for clean food and water. Recent World wide marches against MONSANTO are occurring but the media is repressing the news and thousands of people are protesting. Family affairs may go awry to put it mildly. Expect indigestion, reflux and even food poisoning, upset tummies and woman refusing to do traditional housekeeping roles. This is a suffragette energy.  Uranus brings out the freedom, anarchy, turn over the tables and fight “the man” mentality. So expect the unexpected on all levels. Be careful around fire, BBQ’s, and anything potentially dangerous. Family violence may erupt. Blended families and those of an egalitarian Aquarian open-minded nature fare better. Uranus is almost at a new decan.

MARS in GEMINI squares NEPTUNE  – Spacy cadets

Angry debates, accusations and confrontations against nefarious, secretive organizations dealing with oil, laundered money, the film industry or big Pharma.  Anything that has been sublimated may erupt over the cocktails. Addictions to food, TV, video games or porn become part of the conversation. Do be careful when driving, this is a dangerous drunken aspect.  Danger from high  tides, drowning, floods, pirate attacks at sea, and immigrant stowaways in the news this week, 

Ideally our minds should be tuned into the higher spiritual vibrations of Neptune seeing beyond duality.

Virgo Moon also opposes Neptune later today then squares Mars. 

We will be able to digest the sudden hits of information and chaos. The need to save and conserve. Neptune rules debt, and false money.  

In general this energy plays out all week. 

Moon enters LIBRA May 27 @ 5:41 pm EDT 

Attempting to achieve balance, peace, socializing, creativity, love, romance are in the air. 

Mercury Retrograde meets Mars May 27  a  War of words

Information will be very wonky on Wednesday. Expect delays and frustration levels to be extremely high.  It will be too easy to incite arguments. People will be acting defensively.

Mercury squares Neptune May 29 Awakening from the dream 

This is a dream review.. Do go back to the drawing board and rethink your visions and dream boards. Conversations can be very creative, imaginative and intuitive. Review old goals, and things you wished you would have said differently. Also a day to let go of being perfect and accept the flow. Rethink our addictions to wasting water, chasing false dreams and being abused by the medical and pharmaceutical industries and their drugs. 

Moon enters SCORPIO May 30 @ 5:33 am EDT

The weekend will feel dark, Goth, INTENSE, emotional, sexy, powerful, secretive, obsessive. 

SUN conjunct Mercury @ 12:55 pm EDT  at 8+ degrees GEMINI

This is the ICARUS aspect. Our minds are soaring too high, and can burn out in the duality of Gemini’s light.  It can be a very creative day, good for rehashing old ideas and shining them up again. This energy is very disonant with the Scorpio Moon energy. Saturday may leave you scratching your head about how pulled in two directions you are and having to live two roles. Energy will be roller-coaster ish. Stay hidden and avoid the conflicts. 

May 31

GEMINI SUN squares NEPTUNE @ 9:07 am EDT

Stay in bed and have a romantic breakfast. Read the New York Times, chat with your family.  Positive spiritual energy abounds. Be super creative and light-hearted today. Celebrate by singing, dancing, painting, romancing. Go to church if you are religious, or meditate in nature. You will feel good and be able to see the inherent mind/spirit/ good/evil split in everything,  Shine the Sun’s everlasting Light on this apparent duality on your shadows and see that it is all One. 

Listen to the beautiful spiritual music

May 27  Mercury Retro conjuncts Mars at 10 degrees GEMINI

This may require re-doing,  all kinds of things. Expect back to the drawing board. People will be angry and impatient about things not moving fast enough. Men may re-appear on the scene ladies. 

May 27 Sun semi-square Venus 

Semi-squares are irritating. Issues with your home, women, children, your mom, or family in general may prove irksome today. The Gemini sun will be prattling on and on. Venus in Cancer will patiently listen but may not be too happy about it underneath.

May 29

Mercury Retro squares Neptune @ 9 degrees Gemini/Pisces

back to the dream board and re-arrange the pieces of that dream. Some information may appear which rocks your world. You may be second and third guessing your direction. The head want what it wants and the soul something completely different.

May 30

Mercury semi-squares VENUS

Gemini is ruled by MERCURY- The Magician #1 in the Tarot-

THE LOVERS in the Tarot

When I started studying the tarot seriously 23 years ago, the connection of Gemini to the Lovers drove me crazy. From studying Astrology I knew Gemini as the most immature, ambiguous, curious, detached sign of all. Not what I would think of associated with the qualities of Love.

Libra, ruled by VENUS would be the sign I would first associate with love and marriage. I won’t go into all the correspondences of the Tarot and the Tree of Life, in the Kabbalah  suffice it to say the Lovers  is in Tifferet at the center of the Tree of Life.

The Lovers and Gemini are about opposites,masculine and feminine, yin and yang, North and South,  Good and Evil, us and them and this is the energy which creates attraction.

Gemini symbolizes consciousness itself,our dual sided brains.

meeting of doves, sun, justice bye bye Taurus

The Sun is conjunct to the Pleiades, the flock of doves, the famous seven weeping sisters, the beginning of the ancient calendars at the critical 29 degrees+ Taurus was once the Spring Equinox zero point, many thousands of years ago.

According to Plotinus: These stars help seekers become consciously aware of Divine Knowledge and Wisdom, which is why their etheric, astral and mental bodies must be purified before being able to integrate with that spiritual realm. 

 They are considered to be the home of our ancestors according to  many Native American legends. The Hopi, Cherokee and some other tribes, suggests their people came from the Pleiades. Don Alejandro Wandering Wolf of Guatemala, claims to have access to relics originally from the Pleiades containing secrets about reincarnation. Many people channel entities from these stars. The Japanese car Subaru means the Pleiades.

They are one of very few star signs mentioned in the Judeo-Christian Bible. Hinduism associates them with the enlightened beings who brought the sacred verses of the Vedas to humans. The Mayans are said to originate form this constellation as their Mayan name means  “begetters.” 

In esoteric astrology Djwhal Khul and Alice A. Bailey says that the Pleiades are one of three stellar configurations that animate our solar system through seven rays of energy.

The legends of these stars are not always happy or positive ones.The Persians who were great astrologers and mathematicians called the month of November when these stars rise Mordad, or “Angel of Death.”

We are saying good-be to a month of Taurus immersion and getting ready to bifurcate into Gemini May 21. A day to meditate on the beautiful 7 stars with Alcyone symbolizing all the Pleiades. 

The Sun and Pleiades also meet up with Asteroid Astrea whose name means STAR-MAIDEN. She was a daughter of Zeus and Themis and she symbolizes Justice. She is an Immortal, and she was one of the most well-respected and highly esteemed goddesses of the Greek and Roman world. Astrea is the goddess of justice. 

She was the virgin goddess of Innocence and purity also called Dike.  Don’t confuse her with Asteria the goddess of the stars.

Astraea, the celestial virgin, was the last of the immortals to live with humans during the Golden Age, of antiquity. According to Ovid, Astraea abandoned the earth during the Iron Age. Fleeing from the new wickedness of humanity, she ascended to heaven to become the Constellation Virgo. The nearby constellation Libra reflected her symbolic association with Dike who in Latin culture as Justitia is said to preside over the constellation.

In the Tarot the 8th card, Justice, shows the figure of Justitia, and can be considered related to the figure of Astraea on historical iconographic grounds.

Justice Rafael Tara Greene astrology

Justicia by Raphael at the Vatican

According to legend, Astraea will one day come back to Earth, bringing with her the return of the utopian Golden Age of which she was the ambassador.

Siemiginowski_Allegory_of_Summer_Tara Greene Astrology symbols

I thought this was all highly symbolic. The SUN brings Light, it is the Source, it is Golden conjunct to our sacred ancesters from the stars and Astrea a symbol of the return of the Golden Age.  Focus on your own inner purity, justice, balance and Light.

Meditate with the STAR MAIDEN ask Astrea to come and guide you. I will be doing so.

Stay optimystic.

The Star Maiden Song- Lisa Thiel  

 

Mercury Retrograde, Magic thinking

I think I lost a day today already as Mercury stations turning Retrograde in Gemini where it is at its most powerful.

MERCURY turns Retrograde from 13 degrees Gemini @ 6:48 pm PDT/ 9:48 pm EDT and May 19 @ 1:48 am GMT back to 4 degrees on June 11th. 

Do mark where those degrees are in your natal chart. The Retrograde affects everyone differently event though it affects all of us. check which houses and aspects too.

The Presciption is: Don’t start, launch, buy, sell, or initiate anything during this time period unless it is unavoidable.

But Mercury Retrograde especially in Gemini can be very useful for breaking down old ways of thinking, and communications breakdowns which are a good thing. Things must break down to grow.

“Turn off your mind relax and float downstream” in the immortal words of John Lennon. Stop fearing Mercury Retrogrades.

The Moon is in Gemini May 18th, one of the pair of signs that Mercury rules, the other is Virgo highlighting this Super Mercury Retro. where we are deconstructing mind games.

It begins as a  sobering Mercury Retrograde as Moon opposes Saturn Retrograde in Sagittarius.

Review long-term educational, travel, writing, publishing and of course communications.

Moon conjuncts Mars so this is a hyper chatty, flirtatious, high energy but serious Retro.

You may also be feeling very wired and angtsy, Mars heightens the split personality energy.  Use it for selling, marketing, and meeting new people or clients who could turn out to be long-term clients/friends/lovers.

Moon squares Neptune a few minutes after the Retro. to make you feel lost at sea  without a GPS- be careful of liquids and computers and phones during this time period. Do tap into your dreams during the Mercury Retrograde.

Mercury is the TRICKSTER archetype, connected to coyote wisdom, the Fool, the sacred jester.

Watch your mind, become the watcher.

MEDITATE daily during the Retrograde

 Watch how the ego/mind plays tricks on itself. 

Mercury is The MAGICIAN in the Tarot.

These two archetypes the Fool= zero and the Magician emanate from the 1st Sephirot in the Tarot called Kether,  they represent the initial emanations from the Godhead.

Hermes is Mercury’s name to the Greeks, he is the messenger God. Hermes/Mercury carried a magic wand called a Caduceus given to him by Apollo the Sun God. The Caduceus is a staff with two intertwining snakes on it topped by two wings. This magic rod is a symbol of the spinal column, the central conduit for Kundalini energy. The snakes cross on the chakras. The twin snakes represent complementary halves of the nervous system which Mercury rules. Snakes have since time immemorial symbolized wisdom, psychic powers, women’s menstrual cycles, the process of change, life and death, healing, the brain, our wiring.

Mercury is also a hermaphrodite. This issue of gender bending and transexuals is very much a Mercurial topic.

Mercury is duality in all of its aspects, yin/yang, polarity, balance. Normally  we largely operate in logical masculine analytical, Virgo left brain thinking. During Mercury Retrograde the intuitive, Feminine right-brained thinking is what gets turned on.

All planets during their Retrograde phases visit the Underworld, our unconscious to rest and renew. The God and Goddess also need to rest and renew..

As with all Retrogrades do all the Re things, relax, rewind, review, recalculate, etc etc. Rx the symbol of retrograde phase is the same as a Pharmacy. It is always Good Medicine.

HOW TO GET THROUGH IT WITH POISE

Do back up all computers, as information is likely to be lost, tampered with, misplaced, screwed up, and computer viruses run rampant during Mercury Retrogrades. As Mercury is in his own sign I predict this Retro could be a hair-puller but can be very good.

The symbol of Mercury Retrograding close to the New Moon symbolizes that we wipe the slate clean of old stale ideas, outworn attitudes, ways of communicating and mental images of your own identity and the world which need Re-energizing.. It is definitely time to change your mind and keep the change, a title of an old NLP book.

Do be careful about losing, dropping or damaging your cell phone or computer. Double and triple check everything use that Virgo influence to nit-pick over everything during the Retrograde.

Celebrities’ Birth Dates Cluster at Certain Points in Year | UConn Today.

Taurus New Dark Moon, healing the demons

A Taurus New Moon brings out our laziness and that is why I am a bit late here this month.

NEW MOON May 17 @ 9:13 pm /May 18 @ 12:13 a.m. EDT/ 4:13 am GMT @ 26 + degrees of Taurus 

It is an INtense sensual in the body New Moon, with a wicked kick of potential healing and exorcising of fear around women’s sexuality and awakening Kundalini energy. We are riding the bull and riding the snake. Note Taurus and Scorpio opposition.

All New Moon’s are new intentions. We are back where it all began in the dark VOID of all potential.

New Moons were traditionally the time for all women to be menstruating in the world.  Before electric lights threw women’s natural rhythms off, women always bled in synchronicity with the Moon’s cycles. All the women were gathered  in the Red tent, the moon lodge, yurt, cave or temple. This was the holiest of holy times. The word Tabu originally meant sacred. The women would bleed onto their mother the earth giving back the life-giving blood which creates all life.  

The New Moon is exactly on the star with the blackest reputation of all  ALGOL, Medusa’s head. A very DARK delicious New MOON indeed. This star symbolizes the patriarch’s greatest fear of women’s sexuality, of her sacred menstrual blood and her erotic power to destroy a man’s ego with sacred sexuality.  Which is what he fears and what he needs most to touch soul.

Fixed star expert Diana K. Rosenberg says the star is associated with ” Violence, beheading, hanging, choking, asphyxiation, electrocution, murder, mob violence.” so be aware of this over the next month.

This very physical Taurus New Moon will take us deep into the darkness of the caves within ourselves where we create our own realities. We will have to battle the shadow, the monster, the dragon, the Gorgon, our personal shadows in whatever form it manifests.

Medusa was originally an Amazon warrioress from Lybia. Her dreadlocks or snakes symbolize  her spiritual or Kundalini transformative powers. Women warriors were fighting back against the advancing Patriarchy. 

KUNDALINI energy

This sacred force which rises form the base of the spine up the chakras to the head awakens cosmic consciousness. This powerful regenerative force has always been symbolized by a snake and many cultures revered -or like Christianity and Judaism feared snakes for this reason. Kundalini energy clears old traumas, and brings enlightenment. Sacred sexuality, symbolized by the snakes was the major initiation path that men received in the Holy Temples of the Goddess, which all women served at before they married. Especially after war this rite was Holy to clear the men from profane bloodshed which we now call P.T.S. D. into sacredness and oneness again.

Algol has many symbols yet she has a Saturn- Jupiter ruling. This star also has positive attributes. Capulus the star proceeding Algol is the handle of the sword which Perseus used to cut off the demons head. But if you know the story it was using the mirror which enabled Perseus to get close enough to slay the demon. ALgol is not Lillith do not get them confused.

The name Algol comes from the Arabic for ghoul or demon. It also means alcohol which Muslims are forbidden to drink. As Psychologist Carl Jung realized the word alcohol or spirit is the same name as spirituality. The soul speaks in metaphors and puns as it does in dreams.The thirst for alcohol to quench emotional pain is an outer bandage against the pain when what the soul needs to heal is spiritual healing.

Algol points out our need to escape from pain through drugs, TV, sex, money power, shopping, whatever your drug of choice is. That escapism is fear and a refusal to listen to the inner pain for the soul’s cry for healing and redemption by the Source. 

With Mercury turning Retrograde May 18 we will definitely be looking back, looking inwards.

Use this New Moon to Full Moon time to

ensure that you are in your body and that your heads are not separated from our entire beings. Taurus energy is brave and we can ride the bull to stubbornly face our shadows, by seeing them reflected everywhere. By doing the great work we will be less critical, rejecting, racist, and we can learn to give the demon the love it is truly needing. We will learn to love ourselves as or neighbour.

Women need to embrace their sacred menstrual blood and their bleeding times as Holy, to be in their bodies. The modern Red Tent movement is hugely successful as it reminds woman of what they need to be whole.  Start at this New Moon.

 Mercury Retrograde is square Neptune 

this is the perfect time to see how faded out people are. How little you are in touch with your body instincts and reality and to change this.

Mars in Gemini is also square Neptune

We can use the sharpness of Mars in our minds to cut through the denial and deal with our addictions.

Venus opposite PLUTO over the next week is very powerful.

Unconscious family power struggles erupting, secret love affairs, passion, erotic fantasy, healing in the family, tenderness or power? Women struggling against the patriarchal structures.. Passive-aggressive. Stock market can be erratic. 

Jupiter is Trine to URANUS 

this is innovative, rebellious, high-tech, courage, over-confident,but also brings confident to be your own unique individual.

Mars is still opposite Saturn

so tread lightly. It is also  involved in a large T- square of Sun conjunct Mars opposite Saturn square Neptune. 

This aspect can be very positive and creative. It will be a challenge to stay on your highest heights. 

GRAND AIR TRINE

North Node to Ceres in Aquarius to Mars/Mercury 

CERES is the great Mother and all heroes pledged fealty to HER. The north node in Libra calls for equality, fairness, balance, judiciousness, wise thinking and a big overview.

As a re-initiated Snake Priestess I will use this New Moon to convene with my Inner snake Goddess, Lilith.  See video by my teacher Kathleen

This is a powerful New Moon of transformation of shedding the old skins, of bravery, solid courageousness, plodding the earth in search of beauty, sensuality and creativity. 

Nourish your body, and your soul. Set new long-term intentions for  6 months from now.
