Sun in Leo, U R a star

The SUN enters Leo, the 5th sign where it shines brightest, a day earlier than usual this year. So for those Cancerians born July 23 and this means you C., you are officially a LEO for this year.

Sun King Astrology Tara Greene

Leo’s ingress features a Libra Moon with a difficult inconjunct to Neptune and a nasty square to Pluto, confusion and power games may highlight this day.

MERCURY in Cancer trines SATURN Retrograde in Scorpio.  

All trines are good but you gotta work them. An excellent aspect stimulating the herald and messenger into emotionally sensitive serious mature emotional conversations and being able to forge new neural pathways.

Moon squares Mars in Cancer late in the day/ July  23 EDT

this will make you antsy in your pantsy. Restless, arguments at home, road rage. May have difficulty sleeping,

LEO is BLING TIME. The SUN KING, Apollo, rides his chariot into his own parking lot July  22 @ 8:30 pm PDT/ 11:30 pm EDT

LEO, the 5th sign, is symbolized by the Constellation of the Lion, considered to be the KING and Queen of BEASTS. Female Lions rule their prides. 

LEO rules the HEART, love affairs, children, creative self- expression, will power, pride, courage, EGO, DRAMA, actors, leaders, the ROYALS, luxury, gold and red, orange, yellow, excess, strength,  Bohemians, Damascus Syria, the stage, heart attacks, brokers, movie theatres, government, the spine, bright yellow stones citrine, yellow diamonds, sapphires.

The 5th sign in similes is the 5th element which is SPIRIT, symbolized by gold, the Sun or Light.

The Ancient Egyptians worshiped the Sun God.

For the Leo month 10 things to ROAR about.

1. Don’t hide your LIGHT, let is shine for all to see. You are the main player, the director and the    STAR of your own life.

2. Be aware of all the dramas you create or allow into your life. 

3. Act like you are someone you admire and want to be like. Get your courage and really GO FOR IT. 

4. Treat yourself well, healthy pride based on positive self- esteem is good. 

5. Keep your EGO in balance, not too much Prima Donna.

6. PLAY – your inner child needs to play all the time.

8. DANCE, be happy, get creative, Enjoy the SUN.  We are the LIGHT, 

9.  Practice,Positive thoughts and affirmations. Banish every negative thought.

10. BE CONSCIOUS of everything you do. Stay heart- centered.

LEO is the Card of STRENGTH in the TAROT #11/#8 

Leo Strength Astrology Tara Greene

 

Haindl Tarot Strength 

The card of STRENGTH traditionally shows a woman holding the  jaws of a lion open. She has an INFINITY symbol hovering over her head symbolizing enlightenment. There are thousands of variations on this card’s symbolism. Sometimes the card is numbered #8 or #11. Too complicated to get into now.

The Haindl Tarot shows a naked woman controlling the serpent Kundalini energy. She is very Lilith like in this card.

The Card symbolizes the will over the beastial, lower, animal nature, instinct, greed, survival, vanity, jealousy, and everything which LOWERS one’s consciousness.

That ability of the Feminine- the Soul, which is LOVE to control the lower animal nature is a mind/heart/spirit focus which is called KUNDALINI energy.  Passion/heat.

The highest SOLAR consciousness is available to us at this time. The  SOLAR LOGOS as Theososphist Alice Bailey and Rudolph Steiner referred to it, is the highest Light Master teachings available, the same as Buddha, Christ’s etc.

Cancer reflections, Daily Inspiration vlog

An easy day July 21, the Virgo moon is sextiling the Sun in Cancer and Saturn in Scorpio. Sun trines Saturn too.

The Sun and the Moon are snuggling up to Saturn in Scoprio, the symbolic father and Mother are honoring their relations, their ancestors, this is important to do. Shamans call upon their ancestors in spirit to help them to heal patients.

The image is floating on your back in a beautiful pool with the sun shining making you feel warm and safe. Visualize this, or do it actually if you can. Whats imagined is real in the mind’s eye.

Its easy to feel and make sense of our emotions. A very feminine fluid flowing earth and water element day. Practical and sensitive, grounded and emotional.

SUN TRINE SATURN in Scorpio

This is  a very positive WATER TRINE – the Sun is at the last critical degree of Cancer. Do look back at your emotional track record over the last month. Whats happened in your home? with family? relationships? children? Is there a completion that needs to happen? Sun won’t  be in Cancer again for another year,

Virgo Monday

It’s a very Virgo uptight, nitpicky Monday.

It is really HOT and humid here in SoCal, Venice Beach. I am on the 2nd floor, wide awake its 3:15 a.m. and too hot to sleep. I can hear Carole King singing Up On the Roof in my mind, like I used to hear it on hot sweltering nights when I was young. 

I’m stumped. I can’t really think of what I want to say and that’s unusual for me. Monday ain’t too bad although you always have to watch your P’s and Q’s  with a Virgo Moon.Moon is  busy tidying up. I mentioned the sextile to Mars in Cancer opposing Chiron in Pisces and sextiling Mercury in Cancer. as a great healing and communicating aspect.

also a difficulty quincunx from Moon with Uranus. 

don’t try any new fangled tech today. 

My Virgo South Node is double checking that I informed you of this info already right? 

Virgo cartoon tara Greene

I do try dear readers to write something every day. I am also on Holiday and need to pick a new website template. My other older website is so old I may get the antique website award at this rate. 

I’m also thinking about Venus Retrograde with Saturn Retrograde, both highly personal planets from July 25-August 2nd. That 9 days will be very intense with many, many old relationships being tested.  

Uranus also turns Retrograde on the 26th {untill Christmas 2015} and then joins PLUTO, NEPTUNE, CHIRON, SATURN, VENUS and CERES apparently moving backwards. 

That’s a lot of backwards moving apparitions, more than usual at once. Some are personal some transpersonal, they have different nuances.

All I want for Christmas is a direct moving Uranus! 

The Uranian/Aquarian Retrograde makes it out with the old in with the new for sure. 

it’s exciting.

gotta go.

Beauty + brains, Venus in Virgo, Retrograde love

Venus enters Virgo July 18th turning Retrograde in a week, July 25. Any planet standing virtually motionless in the sky is very powerful.  

I feel this image of Venus in a still balanced yoga pose,or like a blue heron.

VENUS IN VIRGO GODDESS of the HARVEST

Venus in Virgo earthy love Tara Greene

Jules Breton 19th Century French

Uh Oh, Love goes backwards. Don’t shoot the Goddess! 

also money, values and work reviews, relocations, Love rests, and health renewals.

Venus Retrogrades into the Underworld which is the Sumerian myth of Inanna. Venus goes into what we know as Pluto’s realm to give up all of her worldly status, her jewels, and ego to be dismembered and hung up like a piece of meat on a hook to rot. She is then rescued by her helpers and is reborn after three days and comes back to the Upperworld to reclaim her throne from her impudent arrogant lover Dumuzzi who she left to tend it, who she then sends away or kills. 

So pay attention to the Myth, this is a shortened version for we will be reenacting Venus’s letting go of her ego act,which she begins to do at zero degrees Virgo. She retrograde’s back in Leo and turns direct at the 15th and most powerful degree on September 6. She will take until October 8th to get back to zero degrees Virgo again. 

Venus in the underworld dredges up all the fantasies and fears about dying, letting go, surrender, leaving everything we know behind. Lovers, money, beautiful objects, relationships, anything we are attached to and clinging onto dear life with must be let go of during this 6 week process. 

Venus Retrogrades once every year to a year plus in an eight year cycle. Think back on where you were, who you were with? what were you earning? your health? eight years ago in 2007.  

Would you like to get help going through the letting go death of the ego and rebirth process?- 

 Work with this energy with a bundle of 6 weekly tarot intuitive guidance readings – see below.

Virgo is all about  being humble, frugal, a servant, being part of a community. Leo is all about ME, selfies, vanity, ego, fancy bling, dress to impress, self-proclaimed god status, billionaire’s, you know. 

Venus in Virgo is earthy love, why don’t we do it in the road?

The ego will be struggling with Venus Retrograde in Leo to not let go of the status symbols. But the cosmic process says we must get down to essence. VIRGO is the trees, the harvest, the sacred ground, the oaks, the fruits of our labors. Virgo is on budget, practical, accountable, perfectionist.

Out with the VENUS in LEO drama and over the top passion,and time to get grounded, simple, slow down. 

HEALTH

Virgo, symbolized by the Virgin Harvest Goddess, is a very ancient and large Constellation.Health is a huge issue for Virgos, as they do worry a lot which can affect their health.  Their weakest body part is the upper intestines and they often have underlying health issues of this type.

While Venus is in Virgo you should very carefully watch your diet and health and avoid drinking alcohol, eating greasy, heavy and spicy foods. Venus in Virgo helps one be very disciplined and health conscious. You will love doing yoga, walking, working out and eating simple and healthy during this time. Go on a cleanse it is also optimum time in the fall. Give your body the gift of health  care;do get massages, use natural herbs, naturopaths, Chinese herbal and homeopathic medicines which are not toxic.

There will be love reversals and losses. Many relationships will be stressed and end.

DATING DURING VENUS IN VIRGO SEASON

Women, love and values turn to  earthy and practical;  Do they have good jobs? Are they responsible. Have good hygiene?  Do they have good money management skills? Are they intelligent?

Dress will be neater with tidyer hair and more conservative in general. 

And beware exorbitant  workaholism.

This is a virgo trait anyways. You will have to pry them away from their desks, as they are  married to their job’s

Venus in Virgo is rather dry and information oriented

 they may avoid intimacy by adoring their cel phones, YouTube, books, etc.

Mercury rules VIRGO’s we must always remember that.

Mercury also leaves Leo and enters Virgo on August 7th- August 27th.

Mercury in in Libra,Venus’s sign from August 27- which will enhance Venus’s energy.

Mercury turns Retrograde September 17th, at 15 degrees of Libra, until October 9th where is stations at zero degrees Libra. Those two days will be very powerful.

VIRGO is the sign that is associated with THE HERMIT in the TAROT

This may be a great opportunity to take your ques from the Hermit and take time off and retreat into your room, cave, or preferred place in nature and be alone for a few weeks. 

Do clean up your mess, your messy house, desk, finances, health, relationships, colon.

Daemon Lover Shocking Blue –

Freaky Friday, perfection is coming

The intensity of the energies is weighing on me even though on another level it seems light-ish. Feeling rather tired. It was a beautiful sunny hot day here with lots of ocean breezes.  I am grateful to be in Venice California which really is paradise and pretty mellow.

I’m in a different type of space, you know how it is when you are staying in a friend’s home… Miss my dog Jasper, miss my garden growing so abundantly. Starting to feel like I am actually in California. Shifting realities always awes me. Do you feel that way? So many people move around so much these days.

California is a dream, and all about money, materialism and shopping which I am not into. Especially here in Venice. And it’s a carnival. 

Moon is in Leo friday BUT it will feel rather convoluted and perhaps FREAKY. 

Moon trines Uranus.

Be open for unexpected rushed to the gates of freedom.

Aspects are generally good saturday.

Energy shifting is in the works what with Venus entering VIRGO and Moon conjunct Jupiter in Leo and then Venus .

Things will be even more Virgo til TUESDAY as Moon enters VIRGO July 18.

World Snake Day, Kundalini Energy

It’s world snake day July 16.  DO you have ophidiophobia? Fear of snakes. Many people do. Yes they can kill you, in the Amazon they reach 30 feet. They symbolize kundalini energy the energy of enlightenment coiled in the base of your spine. Yes a snake lives in your body.  Learn to love and respect these powerful reptiles. They carry a huge symbolic and archetypal energy from the Story of Genesis on. 

They were and still are primarily WOMEN’S Symbols.

Snake Goddess Crete Tara Greene

Crete Snake Goddess/Priestess 1600 B.C.

The patriarchy Freud, made them into men’s-  phallic symbols. But they writhe like a  women’s hips. They actually symbolize the menstrual cycle. Snakes were revered and worshipped by early Goddess cultures and particularly in Crete where this beautiful snake Priestess comes from. Snakes were used by the Priestess to divine with. The oracles at Delphi, Greece had snakes on their bodies which they used along with hallucinogenic plants to trance with. They may have used the venom as a hallucinogenic poison as well.

Do you do YOGA? Snake energy is an essential part of every yoga pose.

My friend and teacher Kathleen Graham practices Snake Yoga and dances with her two pythons.

Personally I love snakes and have caught wild ones with my bare hands and always felt I could talk to them Like Harry Potter when I was a child years and years before Harry.

Today was good, tomorrow better.

New Moon in Cancer it was a big historic day July 15 2015  

Pluto got his close up as did his Moons. We have boldly looked at and photographed a  planet which has symbolized Death and power, secrets, fear and control in the face! And we found that the planet and all of our fears seemed to have a heart on it. Awww. A perfect metaphor. It is all a symbol. I love it don’t you?

Live transpersonally.

New quarks were discovered! called Pentaquarks, Penta = 5 = Venus.

 

This Cancer New Moon with Mercury planet of communications and Mars planet of sex, anger and energy was opposing Pluto, lord of death.  My computer {Mercury} crashed {Mars/Pluto=death.} OMG I was freaked. Computers do often take up the energy of what is going on in your life. Thanks little computer for doing that,

I am in L.A. in Venice Beach and was aware of the heavy energies of the DARK MOTHER energy of this New Moon. The Moon is in her own sign so she is also strong and self-nurturing is there and available too. We need to be able to hold the tension of the opposites. It felt exhausting on some levels but I also felt very protected. Did you?  My daughter managed to get my computer to restart and some of my desktop is up, but my files are all different and some things are screwed up. 

There were molotov cocktails in Greece over the austerity measures. More secrets will out. The banking scandals, the corporations that move and shake entire countries millions of people and whole countries. The swindling, corruption everywhere. We can look feared archetypes in the face. We have just done so.

I couldn’t post my little card of the day video I made on the Beach today because of computer crash. But it had this card.

Inspirational card of the day

Prince of Cups Thoth Tarot /Scorpio

The Prince of Cups is a totally proper guide for this special unveiling of Pluto day.

The Prince of Cups symbolizes Scorpio. Pluto is a powerful transformer, the greatest one, death itself.  Pluto is the symbol of enlightenment. We are waking up and being transformed. Dark matter, dark mother, it is the same world, the same words. 

I remember a wonderful children’s book that I read first to my son Elijah and then again to my daughter Leah. It was called Funnybones and it had charming illustrations of the family of skeletons, a mother, father and little boy skeleton and their dog skeleton.

children's books Tara Greene

Perhaps we can honor the bones of our ancestors, and our history which has been overwritten to serve the power mongers of the few.Perhaps when all the skeletons are out of the closet, which Pluto in Capricorn symbolizes that is in process, the skeletons can rest and play and be harmless and we will not be afraid of death.

The Prince of Cups is a youthful energy. We are just beginners. 

The suit of cups are like Cancer energy, open, receptive, the Grail, water, flow, dissolving hardness. 

Be open.  The Deep, Dark Mother New Moon in Cancer energy says

“Let everything happen to you. Beauty and terror. Just keep going. No feeling is final.” – Rainer Maria Rilke.

July 16 

Moon trines Saturn an appropriate serious maturing day. Let the impact of yesterday’s actions, sit and distill their impact and importance.

Moon enters LEO early in the morning

Wake up with the courage of a LION.

Star fields, soul maps, Pluto synchronicity

Expand your thinking exponentially and more cosmically with our space probe New Frontiers, name destiny – getting up close to Pluto 3 billion miles away on July 14th. A three billion mile journey just to fly by but we will see Pluto for the first time since he was discovered 88 years ago.  Pluto is HADES, Hell powerful King of the Dead. Persephone, daughter of Demeter/Ceres is his wife for half the year. 

I also predicted that Pluto would be reinstated as a planet after the new photos of him in my 2015 predictions.

As psychologist James Hillman says about Pluto/Hade  his “fearful cold intelligence […] gives permanent shelter in his house to the incurable conditions of human being.” We are learning more about being human in a vast world of Light and Dark Matter. I am thinking of the Kabbalah and CERN and Stuart Wilde’s talking about the ALuna. 

I had a very deep flash earlier this evening. I suddenly dropped into a clear space, It was  like a whirling carousel of dimensions. It felt like some new inter-dimensional energy is pouring in it felt good, hopeful, beneficient.

You must pay attention to what is going on in the world. CERN and The Light and Dark Matter are being separated out. It’s all symbolic of what is happening.

It’s all one big story we are one cosmic being, we are looking at ourselves in a mirror. We are everywhere. We just think we are here, in one location, that is a trick of the mind. The ego mind is the devil.

PLUTO against the star fields that New Frontiers navigates by.

Pluto stars Astrology Tara Greene

WOW!

synchronicity:  A birth chart is a soul map, a star field.

I was reading the Mountain Astrologer Magazine, an article about progressions. It is a technique where the sun moon and all the planets progress forward {or backwards if Retrograde} a day for a year of time by using an ephemeris or modern astrology software to do the mathematical calculations. There are different types of progressions, secondary progressions, solar arc etc. Secondary Progressions of the Moon, are very powerful, the Moon moves 1 degree every two hours in real time. In progressions the Moon advances 1 degree a month, and takes 2 and a half years to move through a sign.

The Moon lays down in the first few months of your life, the emotional and concrete experiences that will emerge later in life. We re-experience the memories and emotions the Moon symbolizes both those things, our pre-birth, birth and after-birth imprints.

INSPIRATIONAL CARD OF THE DAY

Thoth Tarot High Preistess

The Moon is the Tarot Trump #2 The HIGH PRIESTESS

the Moon embodied in her cooler more detached state.  She is the veil between the worlds and dimension.  What needs to be unveiled? The High Priestess brings the message that you have incredible strength to carry you across the desert without water for a very long time{emotional support.} Trust your instincts. Especially around this New Moon.

The universe is so fascinating. I may be off for a few days so please do read over more article. PLease comment and reblog if you like things,
