High Hopes Inspirational Daily Astrology with Tara Greene

INTENTION IS EVERYTHING!

Last May 2013 I decided that I needed more followers on my blog. I only had a few hundred, so I started to write every day. It has been fun, an obligation, an honor, hard work, an obsession- Saturn in SCORPIO was in my 12th house.

I now have over 5,400 people signed up to get email alerts every time I blog. WOW! THANKS!

I get notifications each time this happens,  since mid January I am being flooded with them again and most of them seem made up to me. Very cleverly I might add. They make me laugh and I can tell sequence, the funny name,the numbers the address. The current spate is from France. Many are real, with gravators and Hotmail account followers.

I can’t thank each one of you one at a time.

And I cant figure out why all these seemingly fake addresses are linking to this blog?  What’s the purpose? I hope you aren’t using this to spam people.  If you can get let me know and get back to me, I’d appreciate that.

VENUS is now faintly visible as the MORNING STAR or MORGANSTERN,

You can make morning wishes now. VENUS will be rising about 2 hours ahead of the Sun.

RENE MAGRITTE , THE RETURN 1940 Brussels Belgium

Jupiter is RETROGRADING back over the U.S. SUN again!

Getting HIGH at home, with a little help from your friends, as more states legalize marijuana is one of the outcomes of this transit.

JUPITER turns DIRECT where it has the most power, right on that magical 13th + degree of CANCER on FEBRUARY 1st which is just around GROUNDHOG Day. Which is also an overlay of IMBOLC a pagan cross quarter ceremonial day on FEB 2

It’s all a metaphor. I am sure most of you are familiar with the 1993 Bill Murray movie, GROUNDHOG DAY which is all about KARMA, repeating the same patterns, situations and experiences over and over. We can all identify with that right? Lets hear from you.

It’s a comedy. Jupiter makes us laugh.

 JUPITER IN CANCER is very fruitful, fertile, brings HIGH HOPES.

In the movie, and each one of us is Directing, starring in and producing our own movies.

WHAT’S YOUR MOVIE TITLE?

Phil, the leading man, who Murray plays, must figure out that he can choose to learn and become a better person. Then, after much work,  his life goes forwards and he finds happiness and love.

So expect some major DEJA VU’s in the U.S. on all levels, economic, political, or perhaps we collectively have learned some lessons and are FINALLY ready to move on and CHANGE the old, old patterns?

Also if you have planets near 13 degrees of all CARDINAL SIGNS you are the most hit. DING DING

NEW YORK CITY AMSTERDAM AND VENICE are all Cancer Sun sign cities.

NEW Hampshire, Virginia, Idaho and Wyoming are all Cancer Ruled states.

Canada of course.

PERSONALLY JUPITER is conjuncting my Uranus again.

THE WIN THE LOTTERY TRANSIT according to another astrologer.

When you are dealing with URANUS energy it is very chaotic. 

BE VERY CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR.

It may feel like a big sucker punch as well. All part of the process my dears.

I am noticing that many people are making very positive breakthroughs who have done their shadow work and are appearing to receive support and others are getting totally mired down and crashing now without any hope.  We are all at different stages of the cycles.

Some clients of mine are really going through  their personal crash and burn but it is all a necessary part of the journey and its the step towards awakening.

I am feeling the cosmic heaviness. I am tired too.  The remedy is:

Do your own shit work. Get a flashlight and stick it up your butt figuratively speaking.

ELEANOR CATTON Astrologybooker prize

 Why does she like ASTROLOGY?

I do not have a birth time for her. A LIBRA born September 24, 1985 in London, Ontario, where Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams were also born. Eleanor is part of the PLUTO in SCORPIO generation which loves mysteries, research,secrets,  detective stuff. 

Eleanor has the MOON conjunct JUPITER which rules PUBLISHING, the planet of Good luck, fortune, optimism, expansion, higher learning,she teaches at a Univercity, in AQUARIUS. Yes it is Retrograde Jupiter.

AQUARIUS,sign of free thinkers, rebels, unique individuals is  ruled by Uranus in modern astrology and SATURN in traditional. Aquaurius is the SIGN of ASTROLOGY itself. She has Uranus in SAGITTARIUS at the middle degree opposite CHIRON in GEMINI- she may be healing the world’s view of Astrology, writing, teaching. Both are square her Mars in Virgo. She is a diligent writer.

The technological invention of the modern telescope by Herschel made Uranus’s discovery possible. The Saturn ancient ruler, well is history. The ancients knew of all the archetypal images of the Gods and Goddesses which were the planets. 

She has a VENUS/MARS conjunction in Virgo, she is balanced, a hard worker, focussed, analytical, intelligent. Virgo rules communicating.

MERCURY is conjunct the SUN in LIBRA. She shines brightest by the pen, words, and balancing and bringing beauty harmony, delight.

Her North Node is in Taurus conjunct Lilith she is a powerful woman, independent, focussed, sensual, graphic, tenacious.

ON the day the BOOKER prize was announced -October 15 2013

Saturn – planet of karma had just crossed her SOUTH NODE in SCORPIO. Not shown on the chart. This is a very karmic sign. The transiting North Node also crossed her natal South Node. I believe she has been a person of letters before. Born with Jupiter Retrograde conjunct  the Moon in Aquarius.

This books sprung from past life memories. It is set in the 1860’s in New Zealand. Her father is from that land. her Moon remembers. She may have had snippet sin dreams or literally channelled it.

The recent Scorpio eclipse of November 3 have put her in the world’s eye. She receives a big prize and world-wide recognition and she is still in line for her First Saturn return coming exactly a year from now. 

Do you read a lot of books?  I have always loved reading.

Writing is hard work. I’ve been working on a book for years.

SHAKE IT OUT- Florence and the Machine 

GRAND Trines and how to use them to build those dreams

The Saturn Neptune TRINE in SCORPIO PISCES was exact June 11 with both planets RETROGRADE but its far from over. The aspect is ongoing, as the two have more exact Trines with JUPITER in CANCER joining in the magic making creating  a VERY GRAND TRINE on July 17 and then another SUPER HOT GRAND TRINE with MARS in CANCER too, on July 20 one degree earlier at 4+ PISCES/SCORPIO.

Grand Water Trine 2013

SATURN TURNS DIRECT on JULY 7th

So this dream building  energy will change at the next TRINE, EXPAND monumentally with JUPITER and Saturn going direct and then MARS firing it all up. 

Now its time to do all the RETROGRADE dream building stuff,what I call the RE- thing. Review, rebuild, rewind, reflect, refinance, relegate, etc.

Grand WATER trines on this scale are really awesome, unleashing

MUCH emotions, tsunami’s of feelings, Fabulously FEMININE, home, security, children, Mothering,FOOD, water, security and lots of tears of joys and sadness. Th eworld will be a different place after this COSMIC BAPTISM.

It’s a world cleans and the mother earth needs it. Mars and Jupiter entering the womb means the Masculine sky God- Jupiter/Zeus/Yahweh will be immersed in the cauldron of the Great Mother. 

We will see a more feminine, feeling based masculine being born now.

Ed SHEERAN is my new young male role model of a sensitive yet masculine man with deep feelings, and he’s only 22 years young.

YOUR NIGHT DREAMS will be lucid, technicolor and full of emotion. Your psychic energy will increase like wild fire. You will need to know how to psychically protect yourself.

A word of caution about GRAND TRINES

The astrology cookbook on Grand Trines is that they are an easy  beneficial blending of two or more planets. They can’t be taken for granted though. You have to help make ’em work. Midwife them. It depends on which planets, what signs they occupy and how they are affecting you in your personal chart. Too much of a good thing may not be that great either. For example JUPITER in a water sign makes people put on weight.

WATER SIGNS are naturally Cancer -4th house, Scorpio 8th house  Pisces 12th house. These are all houses of beginnings and endings.

4th house is home, womb, mom, unconscious, instincts, emotional security, the stomach, endings, roots, real estate, birth, nurturing,nourishment

8th house- death, rebirth, taxes, inheritance, power, control, secrets, ruthlessness, spite, revenge, obsession, sex, s& m, atomic energy

12th house- spirituality, endings dreams, illusions, creativity, gurus, addictions, Hollywoood, glamour, compassion, Bliss, karma, institutions

So where do the GRAND TRINES waterfall in your chart?

DO YOU HAVE GRAND TRINES in your NATAL CHART?

they are fairly common. Do they really help you or do they make you lazy?

Your feedback on this is most welcome.

So we are dealing with INTENSE TERRITORY- 

The caution/down side of these TRINES can also DROWN US IN PISCES addictions, self-pity, SCORPIO obsessions, defensive control mechanisms, failing for spite, avoiding the pain, refusing rehab, overly optimistic, numbing out with eating CANCER/JUPITER.

It is excellent for artists, musicians, actors, addictions counsellors, depth psychology,therapists, shamans, spiritual revelations, traveling on water, gambling, investing in water based products, shipping, clean water, food, farming, charity work, dream groups.- see below, learning psychic tools, spiritual journeys, grand house parties, children, gourmet cooking, the housing industry,women’s rights, food, water  and nature laws being upheld, ashrams, yoga, sex therapists, tantric yoga, sound healers, 

This first SATURN NEPTUNE RETROGRADE

feels like it can unleash the GAP between your Saturn in SCORPIO depressing REALITY and your NEPTUNE in PISCES sweet dream. YOU may be feeling very sad, or angry- this is still SCORPIO involved, resentments, depression, feeling like giving up and escaping can all come up. This is the RETRO phase. We are still REVIEWING REWINDING. Dont feel bad if the GRAND TRINE magic doesn’t seem to be working for you YET.

I can certainly testify to this. 

As the aspect continues, daily and when SATURN goes DIRECT July 7 a day before NEW MOON in CANCER

that’s when you will start to feel that those dreams can be built. Slowly- this is SATURN in SCORPIO- being easy on you, giving you patience with purpose. JUPITER AND MARS are the whiz-bang optimizers. 

The raft, rug or boat you build now will be the one you magically float, fly or sail over the GRAND TRINE WATERFALLS with later.

Inspirational card of the day,The Hermit, go within

June 12 Inspirational Card of the Day

Major Arcana TRUMP # 9

The Hermit Tarot Tara Greene

THE HERMIT The Alchemical Tarot

If you’ve been following this daily offering you may have noticed that

we are encountering a series of Major Trump Cards. The Fool, Strength and now The Hermit. 

THE HERMIT  is the old wise SAGE, the guru, the seeker of inner wisdom,the Ancient wisdom keeper,

The number 9 is the number of completion, perfection , it is the last in the sequence 1-9 and then repeats.

THE HERMIT is always a  lone figure, as the name implies. A hermit was/is  a spiritual seeker,

one who went into the woods,or into a cave,  who dropped out of society to seek more meaningful  answers to life.

He is usually cloaked, mysterious, traditionally an older, wiser more experienced grey haired long bearded man.

He can be facing left or right, always holding a lantern and a staff. He is a seeker and a way shower.

Some famous Hermit types are the Buddha, Yoda, Gandalf, St. Francis of Assisi, Hildegarde Von Bingen, a 12th Century German Benedictine musician, mystic, writer, herbalist and visionary, American artist Georgia O’Keefe, musician Cat Stevens who converted to Islam and dropped out of public sight at the height of his fame.

Georgia O'Keefe artist

Painting by Georgia O’Keefe

The Hermit is also the sign of VIRGO

add on the additional meanings of earth sign, practical, devoted,ecology, hard-working, serving others, intelligent, ordered, perfecting, health.

MEANING

The HERMIT is a part of you seeking deeper meaning and inner wisdom within. The Hermit is telling you to take some time out. SLow down. You need a break from the usual daily crazy busyness. Slow down, pay attention to what you eat, digest everything, get into  your body wisdom. Do something which requires time, concentration, patience to create. Write, read, slow down. You already have the answers within you. 

MEDITATION

Close your eyes take some deep breaths, and imagine that you are walking into the forest away from all civilization. As you walk you drop different personas, attitudes, defenses in the form of clothing, symbolic items which drop to the side of your path. As you walk you feel lighter and lighter. 

You walk for a very long time through the woods with only the sounds of the birds and the trees snapping and the breeze blowing. Listen, the world is at peace, it is whole complete beautiful. You are seeking help as you still don’t know where you are going, why or how. You ask from your heart for a sign. It is getting dark, fear comes up and sends shivers down your spine. A raven crows. Darkness descends and you stop walking. You feel your heart racing in your chest. You lean against a large tree. And remember to breathe deeply to calm down. You start to feel centered, you remember to be like the tree and grow roots to ground yourself. You feel steadier. Then something inside you tells you to turn around, and off in the distance you think you see a faint glow. You carefully walk towards the dim light which gets brighter as you go. Then there ahead of you and above you, you see a figure. A man in a hooded cape holding up a light. Telepathically he tells you that you  he is your guide, your way shower, he is protecting you with his Light and he will always be there for you whenever you need.  You are awestruck by his presence which seems ancient, kind, mysterious yet filled with knowledge. 

Anytime you wish your inner guide is there for you. You have just met him. Sit quietly every day and ask the HERMIT to teach you. It will take time and patience. You must persist.

Inspirational Card of the Day,hope for broken hearts Astrology

Your Inspirational Card of the Day May 25 

The 3 of Swords

tarot card readings Tara Greene

THe SHADOWSCAPES TAROT by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law

The 3 of swords is usually considered to be a heartbreak card,  but in this beautiful deck it is about much more than that

it is about transforming the pain and loss into beauty, as signified by the white swan in the foreground. 

The broken/bleeding heart seems almost to be a Dreamcatcher in the background of dreams lost and hurtful past memories.

But the purity of the swan  signifies hope, trust in the process, the Ugly Duckling becoming the beautiful swan,

I love this image and this deck, it is truly extraordinary.

MEANING

Your pain and suffering have a higher purpose. It is as the Sufi Poet Rumi says

“In the slaughterhouse of love,

they kill only the best, none of the weak or deformed.

Don’t run away from this dying. Whoever’s not killed for love is dead meat.”

Astrology of this day

that wandering Sagittarius Moon after being eclipses squares off with Neptune in Pisces

like a torch lighting up a room of smoke and mirrors of romantic  illusions,

Moon Trines Uranus in Aries which allows some brilliant new insights to light up the chambers of our hearts

Moon squares Chiron in Pisces the healing begins, the healing is in the wound,

Moon opposes Venus in Gemini- the duplicity of it all! seeing the double talking, the forked tongue, the ambivalence

and immaturity.

It’s time to allow the healing, you can no longer allow your heart to be hurt

with out understanding why and for what higher purpose.

then you become healed and transformed into your original beauty, with the purity of the swan.

then you can take to the skies and spread your hearts’ wings with love 

Allow the love which you know you deserve into your heart.

What Become of the Broken Hearted? by Jimmy Ruffin 1966 

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford,crack head,eh? Astrology from Tara Greene

Well Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is personally destroying my home town city’s reputation in the world. There is no class in “world class city”  Toronto’s dreams on the world’s stage now. I have been disgusted by Mr Ford since he was elected in October 2010. How?  By  outlying Conservative suburbanite’s as a backlash to the downtown core of multicultural Liberal Toronto urbanites.

You may not know it but Toronto’s nickname is HOGTOWN and I find Mr. Ford’s behavior to embody that moniker totally. He says misogynist and racist things on camera.

THE GREAT WHITE NORTH has taken on a whole new significance.

Great white North Toronto Tara Greene

SCTV’s Bob and Doug Mackenzie  Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas 1980

The evolution of Hosers from 20th century to snow blowers in the 21st.

Mr. Ford allegedly caught on video with a crack pipe in his hands. Somali drug dealers showed it to two Toronto newspaper reporters and John cook from Gawker on an iphone. Their are asking for $200,000 to hand it over and Gawker, a U.S. company has a  fundraising campaign to get the sum together.- see link below

The Somali drug dealers for some reason aren’t being questioned or arrested for selling illegal drugs and were interviewed saying they want the money so they can leave Toronto for the “promised lands” of Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s tax-free oil sands of Alberta and start a clean new life allegedly, or sell more crack to a rich and bored audience.

One of Mr. Ford’s former “buddies” another Somali fellow was shot dead in a gangland shoot out in Toronto in March.  Mr. Ford has become a household name for all the wrong reasons.

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford crack scandal

Jon Stewart spent 6 minutes of TV time totally lambasting the former football coach.

Jimmy Kimmel also produced a staged Interview with an actor posing as the Toronto Mayor

Jay Leno also mentioned it and said its’ because “there’s not a lot to do in Toronto.”

I beg to differ- Toronto is Heaven according to Michael Moore, and is the only city with 130 different ethnic groups living in relative peace in a GTA of  over 6,000,000 people,  it’s now the 4th largest city in North America.

This is not the first time Ford has been in trouble, he’s already fought many charges of being drunk, rerouting public transit for his football team, having his photo taken with a Neo Nazi, caught calling Asians “orientals” and saying racist comments in public. Walking right into a camera.  Talking on his cell phone and driving which is illegal.

I predicted Rob Ford’s win in October 24 2010 and briefly went over his astrology chart you can read that here http://www.taratarot.com/id177.html

Here’s a surrealist image of Rob Ford’s defense, after French artist Rene Magritte.

For Americans and others who don’t speak French, Canada’s “other ” official language.

It says  “This is not a crack pipe.”

My interview by The Toronto STAR newspaper on Mayor Rob Ford’s future on December 31 2012   see it on my website http://www.taratarot.com/id1.html

Lets look at Bob’s current astrology transits

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford Astrology Tara Greene

click chart to view larger

I’ve intuitively Rectified Rob Ford’s chart as there  is no known birth time.

He looks very Taurus like to me, so I’ve put that sign as his Ascendent and guess what? Planet NEPTUNE planet of addicts, snake oil salesmen, deluded, secretive, glamour seeking individuals have this aspect and it is sitting in his 7th house of “others.” The recent Solar Eclipse at 19 degrees Taurus would have fallen across his Ascendant /Descendent axis, the horizon line.

Transiting Jupiter in Gemini is nearing a 90 degree square to his North and South nodes in PISCES/Virgo. Jupiter rules the HIGHER law- no pun intended. I mean Sacred Law, the true justice not false corrupt justice. This is a karmic face the law for your past injustices. Seems perfect timing to me.

Jupiter is also squaring his Natal PLUTO JUPITER URANUS conjunction in Virgo.  That powerful Trinity spells out a power crazed big risk taker, who thinks he can do whatever he wants, is above the law, is so full of himself, conceited, Psychopathic.

Rob is also having his SATURN opposition which is also a get caught in your tracks holding the bag kind of aspect. Happens every 14 years or so.

Rob has a very difficult aspect at his birth, Mercury planet of thinking in GEMINI,Retrograde,which it rules, so its  indecisive, immature, irresponsible, usually labelled as learning disabled, is opposite  Mars also  RETROGRADE in Sagittarius which makes the usual truth teller a man who trips on his own words. Retrograde Mars in Sagittarius means abuse of the Law. This is a karmic aspect, his thinking and actions aren’t congruous. This man is not conscious and therefore  very dangerous.

The Lunar Eclipse on May 24 is opposite  his Mercury in Gemini and in square to his Natal Chiron, the wounded healer.  His double talking is as the Canadian comedian Russel Peters says “Someone’s gonna get a hurtin’.”

NEPTUNE PLANET OF ADDICTIONS delusion, illusions, glamour, secrets, is SQUARING-HARD Rob’s Sun. Neptune in his  natural 11th house of wishes hopes and dreams has turned in his delusions of grandeur from a Pipe DREAM into a PIPE NIGHTMARE.

I think I will rename him SPONGE BOB Square Crack.

He is turning only 44 in a few days, A Master number, 4  being the number  of Power in the Tarot. THE KING or Emperor. The opposite side of the King is THE FOOL. He is making a huge fool of himself and this city.

Oh well, so it goes as Kurt Vonnegut used to say in Slaughterhouse Five.

MOTHER PEACE TAROT CARD DECK

The Lovers Trump # 6 GEMINI

So synchronous that the LOVERS showed up on Mother’s day. So sweet. I love it.

It is associated with the Sign of  GEMINI- duality in one.

To love, one must have an equal and opposite mirror, polarity, Yin/yang.

LOVE IS ALL. Love is all we need. Love, Love, Love.

We are in a Universal LOVERS  year as 2013 reduces to #6 

MEANING

Drop all you old resentments,hurt  and old emotional baggage about what MOM didn’t do for you

and turn that into gratitude and joy.

MOM gave you LIFE, for you to make of it what you will. Thank her and love her for that alone.

She gave you a great gift and walked in the shadow of death to give birth to you.

Mom may not have been perfect, still she made sacrifices for you. Mom may be like Mother Mary to you, all loving giving and compassionate.

Mom is both human and the Archetype of the Universal Goddess of creation and love who constantly gives birth to everything in the universe. She is the closest you will ever get to another person. You are her. You were physically in her body from the time she was conceived in her mother’s body. You have every experience and emotion that she had inside your own cellular consciousness. Plus your own karmic story of why you chose her to be your mother.  Whewh, that’s a whole book in itself.

Love your mother and honor her today  and everyday.

Take some deep breaths and see your mother as the Goddess, as the perfect mother, see her real frailty, her own wounds and struggles, and love her imperfection the same way she loves yours. Know that whatever her love or perceived lack of, that she love you unconditionally.

Love our mother the EARTH as well.  Everyone is born of woman, your Mom is your, and everyone’s  very real, living experience of the Goddess.
