Prince, life and death, when doves cry,

So shocked to hear of pop musician Prince’s sudden death April 21 at 57 years of age. The world is mourning the impact of his talents, music and his scope of influence from the 80’s until now. Prince was on the road playing just last week.  Even President Obama made an obituary speech lauding him. Niagara Falls was scheduled to be lit in purple to mark Queen Elizabeth’s 90th birthday and this coincided with Princes’ death. Purple is the color of psychic ability. Purple Rain was one of his biggest hits. He sold 100 million records during his career and was the most popular musician in the 80’s. He won an Academy Award for “When Doves Cry”

So lets look at and understand who the diminutive, 5 feet 2 inches powerhouse of musical talent was at his birth and his death. 

Numerology, he was an 18 Personality the Moon/Pisces, a test of faith and many rebirths. His soul was the Number 9 the Hermit and he was an exacting perfectionist, a hard worker, very humble, and very private. 

Born Prince Rogers Nelson on June 7, 1958 in Minneapolis, at 6:17 p.m. 

PRINCE had a very powerful astrology chart.

Prince, astrology,musician, Tara Greene

 

A GEMINI Sun, Prince was a natural communicator,with Sun in the 8th {Scorpio} house of sexuality, transformation, power and control. He apparently wrote over 500 songs. He had a Scorpio Ascendant and PLUTO right on the M.C. high noon position, makes him an honorary SCORPIO.

PLUTO conjunct to REGULUS the heart of the Lion, the star of Kings, on the HIGH NOON Fame position in the world, and MARS, ruler of his Ascendant at zero degrees ARIES the most powerful place for MARS to be.  Zero degrees Aries is the start of the Zodiac, a world point. He was full of energy, sexuality, restlessness, a risk taker and an innovator.  “Little Red Corvette” indeed. His Mars was in his 4th house of privacy, his home, roots and family and he mainly stayed and worked in his home town. 

Prince’s MOON at 1 degree PISCES is conjunct his I.C. the 4th house cusp at the bottom or roots of his chart. Pisces Moon is artistic, He was known as THE ARTIST. dreamy, spiritual psychic, adaptable. He must have been very close to his mother. He was operating on a higher vibration, connecting to Source energy directly. He felt one with everyone. He was very charitable and was secretly supporting families who needed it. 

The Moon is opposite PLUTO on his M.C. this is an obsessive, power house energy. He could not fail, worldly success was in the chart. Although he did have some huge ups and downs with Warner’s his record company over his name and identity. A Pisces Moon person just changes his energy so that he is just a symbol, so he is free to do it his own way. 

His Mercury, ruler of his Sun is in its home sign of GEMINI in his 7th house. Mercury forms a T-square with  PLUTO at the top of his chart and the MOON at the bottom. To have these powerful  planets in alignment this way have Prince immense powers to succeed and control. He was obsessive in conveying his emotional passions through his music. He was mesmerizing live, HIs performance at the SUPERBOWL is considered to be the best one ever,

Mercury is also involved in  a YOD or Finger Of God to Mars at Zero degrees ARIES is involved in the Yod which points to his North Node and Neptune God of artists and musicians and Spirituality which is conjunct to his North Node also at Zero degrees SCORPIO in his 12th house of hidden things. Zero degree points and planets indicate new life experiences. It’s obvious that Prince’s karma was to be an incredibly creative spiritual, high-minded,ego-less person. A mysterious, adaptable, mutable, mirage, very Piscean. 

HIS SOUTH NODE in TAURUS is conjunct VENUS in her home sign, in his 6th house of work and service, humility, health and discipline. This indicates that Prince was very grounded, artistic, very sensuous, he oozed sexuality, very feminine, he played with his sexuality, flaunting flamboyant dress and wearing eye make up. He adored women and featured them in his bands where he gave them much power and success. Prince was a stubborn, obstinate, purposeful person. He has great taste and loved the finer things in life.

His Saturn in Sagittarius is Retrograde in his 2nd house of resources and opposing his SUN. This gave him staying power, Saturn rules longevity. His father who was also named Prince as a musician and encouraged him at an early age to follow music. Saturn gave Prince discipline. He worked hard and this made him a more mature serious down to earth Gemini. Saturn is always where there is obstacles and in the house of money. he struggled with legal issues, which Sagittarius rules for many years over copyrights. 

Jupiter is also Retrograde in Libra in his 11th house of organization, the level playing field, innovation, fashion, and relationships. Jupiter makes a GRAND AIR TRINE to his SUN and CHIRON in AQUARIUS. His music although spanning many genres always had a deeper healing quality to it.  Jupiter in Libra gave Prince master abilities as an artists who could play at least 27 instruments, he was a polymath of music. 

URANUS IN LEO in his 9th house squares VENUS in TAURUS and North Node and NEPTUNE in SCORPIO.

This is where Prince’s unique talents came from. He truly channelled some Princely energy into some funkier innovation in his music. 

PRINCE was known for writing very sexual lyrics and he was incredibly charismatic to both sexes. He had the asteroid EROS in PISCES,in his 4th house making his omnisexual. EROS squares his Saturn and his SUN, He shone and carried this sexuality in a fun light-hearted way through his pop music. 

PRINCE’s DEATH

On April 21st in Minneapolis Prince was pronounced dead at 10:07 a.m. 

Apparently he had been ill with the flu. His jet made and emergency landing in Illinois last Friday where he was given a “save shot” which is administered for a drug overdose. Doctors recommended that he stay in hospital but unable to obtain a private room he left.  An attempt was made to revive him when emergency came to his Paisley Park recording studios when he as found collapsed in an elevator in the morning and unresponsive. 

TRANSITS 

THE SUN at 2 degrees TAURUS is conjunct to Prince South NODE, directly opposite to his Natal Neptune and His North Node in PISCES in his 12th house of addictions, spirituality, mystery and endings.  the Sun also squares Prince Uranus in Leo indicating the sudden, shocking, unexpected nature of this energy. Literally seems to be heart attack but as we are dealing with Neptune the cause of death may be related to a drug overdose and quite mysterious. 

URANUS the planet of the unexpected of major change and chaos was directly opposite to Prince’s JUPITER in LIBRA. That is a sudden death marker. Venus is also conjunct Uranus. PLUTO ,  Lord of DEATH, was also squaring Prince’s Jupiter in LIBRA,

Planet SATURN, the planet of karma, traditionally the planet of death is RETROGRADE in SAGITTARIUS,  exactly opposing Prince’s GEMINI SUN with Jupiter squaring his Sun from Virgo sign of health as well.  

CHIRON, The Wounded Healer at 23 degrees PISCES is squaring Prince’s SUN and exactly squaring his SATURN. Prince may have been feeling unwell for quite some time. 

The transiting Moon was in LIBRA conjunct LILITH and Prince’s JUPITER heading towards a Full Moon in Scorpio. 

MERCURY, the ruler of Prince’s Gemini Sun is at the time of his death at 22 degrees Taurus.

The Sabian Symbol for this degree is. 

A WHITE DOVE FLYING STRAIGHT AND FEARLESSLY OVER TROUBLED WATERS.

How appropriate to the man who sang about “this is what it sounds like when the doves cry.”

My intuition was telling me to search for Chandra symbol meanings. Here is what I found

for Prince’s Retrograde Saturn at Sagittarius 22. A flamenco dancer. As he stamps his purple boots, small clouds of dust are raised. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Sensitive
(Degree Angel: Ariel (AH-ree-EL) Absolute Certainty, Perceiver and Revealer)

A passionate and insistent self-expression is found here. This degree has the ability to stir up energy and to bring transformation to situations by provoking others to see them in a new way. It helps others to get back in touch with what they’re really feeling, and to go ahead and express themselves. Affirming once again the ground of our being, self-assurance is renewed and we’re ready to move on.

HOw perfect is that. Saturn was Prince’s karmic/dharma mission. I love the Purple boots reference. Is this not what Prince gave us through his music and his living example? 

We will miss you Prince. Millions of people are mourning you. Another great pop singer gone. Your music and your life example will live on.  My phone number ends in 1999.

PRINCE’S LEGENDARY SUPER BOWL PERFORMANCE IN THE RAIN 2007

It’s so hard to say Goodbye 

Scorpio Rebirth, Earth Day, Full Moon

SCORPIO Rebirth FULL MOON, Earth Day April 21-22

“and the earth will rise again.”

a shorter version of this article was published on the Cosmic Intelligence Agency site

https://cosmicintelligenceagency.com/full-moon-scorpio-2/

The FULL MOON IN SCORPIO’s Energy is in effect for three days. 

This Scorpio Full Moon packs a lot of significance into it. More than usual. It is the smallest full moon of the year, a micro-moon. It features the SUN at 2 degrees Taurus which is the Moon’s most exalted degree, elevating our gut instincts, high tides and our innate intuitions to their highest levels.

In the sign of SCORPIO this Full Moon is in fixed mode, yet all about change, releasing, letting go, death, decomposition, transformation and rebirth.

It is EARTH DAY APRIL 22 and the Full Moon occurs this day East of PDT. Scorpio is a water sign and water is of great necessity and we are 70% water ourselves. We need to turn our attention to what is dying in the world’s oceans and what we can do to revive Pachamama or Mother Earth. Drought and flooding from climate change is wreaking havoc. The Australian Coral Reefs are 90% bleached. Radiation leakage from Fukushima is killing many mammals. Leaching of chemicals into water reservoirs and tables damages all life in many forms.

It is also the Jewish Festival of Passover, one of the most important observances in the Jewish Calendar. The ritual of remembering how the Jewish people were slaves for 300 years in Egypt and Moses guiding them to freedom is an important mythology for all of us.

Scorpio is a sign associated with power and control. What do we need to free ourselves from at this Scorpio Full Moon? The annual Scorpio Full Moons activate instinctive, sexual and hormonal, energies along with the Tides. Scorpio, the 8th sign governs the sex organs, obsession, control, money, death, rebirth, recycling, depth psychology, our shadows, secrets, mysteries, resources, gifts from the dead, metaphysics and tantric union.

This Full Moon coincides with the Hindu festival of Hanuman, a very important deity. He is the Monkey faced God mentioned in the Ancient story of the Ramayana. In the Chinese Year of the Fire Monkey I find the synchronicity fascinating.

Hanuman has many long and colorful stories. Hanuman has mang magical powers or siddhis. He is one of the few persons, human or divine who cannot be adversely affected by planet Saturn called Shani in Vedic Astrology. Devotees of Hanuman receive the same protection by reciting his mantras, to protect them against demons and other negative energies. Call upon Hanuman if you need this protection and to protect the earth herself.

Scorpio as symbol of death is also related to the Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhist deity Vajra Yogini, who, like Kali, wears a necklace of skulls, carries a shell of menstrual blood, and a knife to cut off the ego. She is depicted as a naked sixteen years old girl blazing with sexual energy who uses that kundalini force as an obsession for becoming enlightened.  Vajra Yogini clears all past karmas, all Scorpio-like obsessions with suicide, depression, pain, self-loathing, darkness. You can call upon her to help you.

SCORPIO is associated with the Major Arcana in the Tarot of DEATH #13

Death, Tarot card reading Tara Greene

MARS and PLUTO both co-rulers of Scorpio are now moving Retrograde inviting us to tune deeply within our SOULS taking us deeper looking back on the path we have trod to get to now.

This Full Moon is chock full of shock and awe as VENUS, TAURUS’S ruling planet is conjunct to URANUS in ARIES. The aspect is exact 15 ½ hours after the Full Moon at 21+ degrees of Aries. Both the Goddess of love and the revolutionary catalyst of Light and chaos, Uranus form a square to PLUTO in Capricorn. Yes, we are re-invoking the Cardinal Crosses once again. What we thought was over is not. Both Mars and Pluto’s retrograde informs us that there is unfinished business with our resources, tools, our physical bodies and self-esteem before we can rise from the dead when Mars and Pluto both go direct on June 29th and September 26, respectively.

Change is the name of the game. Venus in Aries is the Amazon warrioress and the Divine Feminine, not limited to women only is changing the way technology, innovation, higher consciousness and a new game plane are evolving in the world.

SCORPIO ASSOCIATIONS

Celtic TREE Mythology: Scorpio is associated with the willow tree. The Willow forms the wicker or Wicca man who is sacrificed on the fire on Beltane May 1st.

SCORPIO FULL MOON MEDITATION:

The snake is a primordial symbol of change, long associated with women, the menstrual cycle, kundalini energy and death and rebirth. If you are afraid of snakes, and many people are, you will have to work through this fear now. Trust in this process, it may work miracles for you in so many ways. Call upon the Gods and Goddesses to help you.

Minerals for SCORPIO 

Moldavite, Kunzite, Labradorite, malachite, Moonstones, Ruby, garnets, red corral for Mars.

Set up an alter or sacred meditation space.
You will need to have bowls of water to meditate or scry over.

Incense:

Frankincense, Galangal, Pine Resin, myrrh, clove oil and violet.

Put on quiet Tibetan Buddhist monks chanting meditation music.

You can pre-record these instructions with pauses to listen to as you do the meditation.

Begin by smudging yourself first.

Light your candles. One for each direction. I always work EAST to SOUTH to WEST TO NORTH. Always move clockwise. Call in the four elements and the four direction into your sacred circle.
Call in the four Archangels, Michael, Gabriel, Ariel, Raphael in the same order.
Center yourself by breathing, sit or lie down. Lying down is very effective to connect with Scorpio energy.  You can do this ritual outdoors.  Best to do this with your eyes closed.

Choose to work on what you wish to transform, let go of and shed like a skin in order to grow. 

Begin to breathe, slowly and focus your attention on your pelvic area and sexual organs. Breathe into your root chakra whose colors is RED.  Keep breathing naturally until you  feel the chakra heating up, to tingle and pulsate. If you don’t sense this, it’s OK just keep breathing and using your intention and your imagination. Visualize a small fire. This is your own kundalini snake/sexual energy you are feeling.

Then send your breath and your intention down from your root chakra into the earth. Send it past rocks, and crystals, deep down into the very heart flame of Mother Earth in the Underworld. It is safe, dark, moist, hot, mysterious and full of power. 

Feel the connection with the Kundalini serpent power of the earth. Ask the earth energy for help in transforming, understanding and letting go of any issue, aspect or situation in your life which is keeping you from growing. Wait, breathe, stay with whatever comes up; keep your intention clear. You may meet a guide, an animal, or something you have never imagined before. Stay calm in your breathing and allow the sensation, scene or action to play out. Even if nothing appears to be happening, it’s OK. something is going on which is invisible but still real. Your higher self knows this. Ask for a symbol, word, color or sign to bring back with you. Stay with it. Give thanks to the chthonic ancient power of the underworld for your gift. Then in your own time, bring your attention back up from the core of the earth to your own body and root chakra. 

Breathe and slowly move your breath up from the base chakra up, one at a time, slowly opening and expanding each chakra with your breath from the root to the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, until you get to the top the crown chakra.  Breathe out of top of the crown chakra. Feel your central chakra channel expand and stay centered. At each breath feel the transformational power of the snake within your breath transforming you from your core.  Stretch your body.  Move your body like a snake. If you do yoga you can move into Cobra position.

Now see, sense and feel yourself shedding your skin, watch it peeling off you like a sunburn naturally and easily as you breathe. Slip out of your old skin of limiting beliefs and feel a brand new skin revealed. This is your rebirth. You have shed the old you.

From this newly transformed place think about how you can use your newly vitalized reborn self wisely.  Feel the freedom, the aliveness, the new you. Slither and dance a celebratory snake dance. The impulse may be to go out and connect with others but its best to stay within this new skin and let it settle on you.

Record whatever thoughts and feelings on your phone or on paper. Pay attention to your dreams during the 3 days of the Full Moon.

Listen to your instinctual snake wisdom, it is as ancient as the earth itself. 

Blessings,

TARA

Meaning of Wednesday, Odin, The Hanged Man

Happy Wednesday, named after the Anglo-Saxon/Norse God Woden or Odin originating from the Hebrew tribe of Dan and the root word Adonai. Woden is the highest God like Zeus, or Yahweh, and a God of poetry, death and the Wild Hunt. Odin is represented as a grave-looking elderly man with a long beard, carrying in his hand a spear accompanied by two dogs and two ravens. He was the father of poetry, and the inventor of Runic writing.

Wednesday is also named after the planet MERCURY, Mercredi in French. The connection is through the  language/ruins/intuitive symbolism connection. For intellect or for true connection to work one must suspend one’s ego and point of view to receive true wisdom. .

He also appears in the Tarot as Arcana #12 The Hanged Man, a card of emotional initiation and baptism of surrendering the ego to a Higher Power.  Odin was hung upside down on the World Tree or Ygdrassil, suspending his ego and logic and this is how he received the inspiration for the magical language symbols the Ruins were born. The Hanged Man is also related to the scapegoat and the martyr.  Alcoholics Anonymous relates to the Hanged Man in giving it up to God in their 12 steps. 

Odin is the HANGED MAN Arcana #12 in the TAROT 

the hanged man Tarot Tara Greene

Another version of the Hanged Man

Napoleon Brousseau Hanged Candy Man 2012

        The HANGED MAN TAROT #12      by Napoleon Brousseau   oil on                      canvas  2012 

Invocation to Odin:

Odin, Woden,
With one eye turned outward
To the world of form and living breath
The other eye turned inward
To the dreaming trance of the dwale, The shamanic death
Oh Dale I enwrap myself in your nightside cloak of deepest blue
(he spears himself in the side)
Hnikkar, Hakelberg, guide us through
The long dark night
As upon den Geisterwegen und den Wegen des Todes we tread
Irlik Kahn oh mighty lord of the dead, guide us through…
Gwyn ap Nudd, Faery King
Take us beneath the barrow mound
By cloven hoof and raven’s wing

I believe I found this invocation at Orryelle Defenestrate-Bascule’s site

Inspirational Daily Card

Libra Moon blows us towards some peace on Wednesday but there will be some angst about justice truth and politics. The symbol of Justice is the scales of LIBRA.
The New York Primary may see voters who were left off of voters lists, over 120,000 in Brooklyn alone, or those denied the right to vote as independents  pursuing legal action against the state as Libra moon sextiles Mars and Saturn in Sagittarius.
There is more CARDINAL SQUARE energy on with the Libra Moon to Pluto Venus and Uranus.
Moon inconjuncts Mercury in Taurus already in its shadow phase before it goes RETROGRADE April 28. Get your pre-Retrograde stuff out of the way now. 
Let’s do a card of the day for some inspiration. 
MAJOR ARCANA #13 
Tarot cards Death Tara Greene
Notice I am avoiding using the word TRUMP.
The Death Card means change. Death, the Grim Reaper is associated with the planet Saturn/Satan and the sign of SCORPIO.  In Canada they just passed a right to die with dignity law as Jupiter which rules laws squares Saturn which rules death.
We are approaching a Scorpio Full Moon on the 21/22nd. 
Life is always about change, releasing, letting go, change, off on , pulsing, life and death one whole quality. You can’t have one without the other. 
The Moon will enters SCORPIO on the 21st in the evening in PST and EST. 
I am writing a Full Moon Meditation article now for the Cosmic Intelligence Agency . So i must run. 
Don’t know about you. But the Mars Retrograde is making me feel exhausted. 
This will be a powerful Scorpio Full Moon full of surprises.

Taurus, Venus Cardinal Cross April 19, the 1%

APRIL 19 It’s time to get Bullish.  It’s the New York Primary.  

SUN enters TAURUS

Taurus Moon, Horoscopes Tara Greene

things get bullish, stubborn, stable, grounded and sensuous

It is one of WALL STREET’S symbols, who supports you know who. The BULL of TAURUS is one of the main constellation under which the Stock exchange was formed. Read the full article http://taratarotweb.tripod.com/id90.html

Moon enters LIBRA the sign of the balance, 

There’s an EXACT VENUS in ARIES square to  PLUTO in  Capricorn @ 17 degrees. Another Cardinal Cross about woman, money,values, power, control, the 1% Plutocracy and secrets.

 Pluto in Capricorn is corporate power, the Patriarchy, the unconscious, the shadow. Pluto is even more obsessively controlling now and very powerful as he is virtually Stationed Retrograde.

DONALD TRUMP WILL WIN BY A MILE, no sense in even looking at that. But his powers will fall later this year. 

This is another CARDINAL CROSS with URANUS, Mr. “EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED”  revolutionary involved although not exact to the degree. Uranus is at 21 degrees conjunct VENUS. There may be some shocking revelations about women, power and secret controls outing soon. 

Who is the person calling for REVOLUTION in this election?

Remember PLUTO is the COSMIC RECYCLER, the Garbageman, who destroys the structures which are dead, outworn,to break them down into new fodder.  

What I am sensing is that if Hillary Clinton does pull ahead now. Bernie Sanders supporters will put increasing pressure on her and on the government through protests to change the system. Yes there will be a revolution. The old order which supports the 1% is in its death gasp. Bernie Sanders is a great gift to us all. Truly amazing to see a politician who is honest ethical who has stuck to his principles and never been bought out. He knows his job is to serve people, he is a humble Virgo. He is not in it for personal power or glory. 

This aspect can be challenging to Hillary’s power attempts to rule the world. 

The PLUTOCRACY controls the media. Hillary symbolizes every inch the Venus in Aries women archetype now appearing to be breaking the glass ceiling by attempting to become the first woman president. 

Because of the way New York voting is set up many of Bernie Sanders younger voters may not be registered as Democrats and would have had to do that months ago. This weakens him because of the way the system is set up. 

In Hillary’s natal chart. Venus inconjuncts her natal Venus at 16 degrees Scorpio with Pluto sextile to her natal Venus in her 5th house of will power. The two planets fall into her natal 10 and 7th houses. But her Aries and Capricorn cusps are in the 11th and 8th houses. This will makes it more difficult for this energy to affect her directly.

Remember that Hillary is a quintuple SCORPIO and MARS RETROGRADE will diminish her power. 

BERNIE SANDERS 

Venus at 17+ degrees ARIES is conjunct to Bernie’s Natal MOON at 19 degrees ARIES which is also conjunct his Mars at 23 degrees ARIES. The Mars Retrograde affects him more strongly. Transiting Venus is sextile to Bernie’s Natal Jupiter in Gemini at 19 degrees in his 8th house of power, transformation, and other people’s money and they form a YOD or a FINGER OF GOD to his 19 degree SCORPIO ASCENDANT,also under Retro energy from Mars. Venus makes an inconjunct to his 15 degree VIRGO SUN, which Jupiter is hovering over now.

Pluto SQUARES Bernie’s MOON and MARS in ARIES in his Natal chart in his 5th house of will. 

This is a very ferocious aspect. Again because of the new Mars Retrograde energy it can shift the tide of power. 

I did have a little vision that said. Hillary Clinton will beat Bernie Sanders buy a tiny tiny fraction and there will be protests and civil unrest and a recount and there will be a draw. 

I’m going to pull some TAROT CARDS cards to make a prediction here: 

For Hillary Clinton:

ACE OF SWORDS

Tarot readings, tarot reader psychic Tara Greene

-a new beginning in communications

For Bernie Sanders:

THE TOWER- MARS Arcana #16 

9/11, New York, psychic Tara Greene

– a shocking awakening

The Tower is a Major Arcana which is usually destructive, a blast of lightning strikes the ego. This is the ARCHETYPE of 9/11. It is a symbol of awakening, a bolt out of the blue. It is also very aggressive masculine energy. It can indicate Bernie could win, a shocking blast to the Democratic status quo and media structure. Mars moving Retrograde shifts the action and the energy to a different place.

We will have to wait and see. What do you think?

Vesta, Grand Earth Trine, Pluto Retrograde

April 18 It’s the last day of ARIES SUN as SOL enters Taurus April 19 @ 8:29 am PDT/ 11:29 an EDT

Mars, ARIES and SCORPIO’s ruler just went Retrograde April 17- June 29th.

Aries and Scorpio peeps will feel the energy slump. Check out which houses the Mars RETROGRADE is occurring.

PLUTO goes RETROGRADE APRIL 18 @ 17+ degrees CAPRICORN 12:25 a.m. PDT/ 3:25 am EDT/ 7:25 am GMT

 A GRAND EARTH TRINE forms within 2.5 hours  in the early morning

The VIRGIN Moon, Mercury conjuncts GODDESS VESTA and TRINES PLUTO @ 17+ degrees. 

Vesta/Hestia, Goddesses, tara Greene

Grand Earth Trine horoscopes Tara Greene

The VIRGIN Moon, Mercury conjunct VESTA all Trine to PLUTO Rx.@ 17+ degrees. 

GRAND TRINES are super powerful and positive especially if you have planets within 12-22 degrees of 17 of Earth signs. 

VESTA/HESTIA in TAURUS is the knowledge that your body is the temple. It is the soul’s investment in your dharma being evolved in this lifetime. INVEST IN YOURSELF, IN THE GODDESS,in listening to Her. Pluto’s Retrograde trine takes you back into your cellular, body memories of your past lifetimes as a priestess serving the Goddess. I remember many  past lives of being of service in this way. Let me help you reawaken  your memories, I use your  astrology chart and intuition to help wake up  your innate knowledge. http://www.taratarot.com 

Vesta and Mercury are  inconjunct to Saturn Retrograde  @ 15+ degrees Sagittarius.

Saturn is the karmic past. It may be challenging to get past some programming from religions about the discrediting and denial of the GODDESS  but it is also perfect timing to let go and cut through. 

PLUTO is very powerful stationary Direct.  It’s a good day to cultivate a connection with your inner Focus, in your temple your body. Do sit and meditate tonight. Make a little simple alter for VESTA light a candle as she symbolizes the sacred flame of spirit and sexual kundalini energy and know it will be easy to speak with her in your  gut knowing, with Mercury there call on PLUTO, Lord of Death to help you to let go of everything that is holding you back. 

VENUS TRINES SATURN @ 15+ degrees ARIES/ SAGITTARIUS 

A nice hot fire trine from the Goddess of Love in her fearless Amazon warrioress outfit benefits the elder Sage teacher, exotic, more mature male or boss energy.  

For women it is time to ramp up your goals, initiative passion purpose and aim higher. Travel, higher education, new independent ventures are all favoured, although Keep in mind Mars is gone Retro. It may take some time which Saturn is good at for those plans to reach maturity. SATURN teaches patience. 

To me the Saturn in Sagittarius public figure these days is unequivocably Bernie Sanders, although the papers and polls say he is behind Hillary Clinton by 12 points or so. This is a good sign for Bernie. 

Those are the major aspects.

New York Primary April 19

SUN enters TAURUS, things get practical grounded, bullish, stubborn, stable. It’s is one of WALL STREET’S symbols, who supports you know who. the BULL of TAURUS is the stars under which the Stock exchange was formed. see my article about this http://taratarotweb.tripod.com/id90.html

Moon enters LIBRA the sign of the balance, 

VENUS in ARIES squares PLUTO @ 17 degrees fire and earth. 1st and 10th houses naturally. 

Venus is women, Pluto in Capricorn is corporate power, the unconscious, the shadow, soul energy. Pluto is even more obsessively controlling now and very powerful as he is virtually Stationed Retrograde.

This aspect can be challenging or empowering to Hillary’s power attempts to rule the world. 

The PLUTOCRACY controls the media. Hillary symbolizes every inch the Venus in Aries women archetype now appearing to be breaking the glass ceiling by attempting to become the first woman president. Pluto symbolizes worldly power. .stay tuned….

Dreams come true, daily inspiration, Tara Greene

April 17 Moon is in earthy humble VIRGO until the 19th. Your instincts and the people’s mood is hard-working, getting everything right, having a mind/body connection. People will be expressing overly critical and exacting nitpicking moods. Nervous energy and worry pervades the air. Discipline, health and organization is an obsession.

THERE is a Nice earth trine from Mercury in Taurus trines Pluto in CAPRICORN

earth Trines Astrology Tara Greene psychic

 

VIRGO MOON/ Mood is connected to every day chores. These are good days to focus your mind on the job, or any mundane, practical matters, do your taxes, get your hands in the dirt, gardening or walking in nature, cleaning your home, doing your laundry, regular maintenance.

Yes Mars goes Retrograde, from Sagittarius and yes old flames/ male lovers will return.

Especially long-distance, exotic, foreign, teachers, Gaucho’s, risk takers, nudge nudge.

The Moon makes hard aspects to going down, RETRO -Mars in SAGITTARIUS and an opposition to NEPTUNE + a conjunction with JUPITER later in the day which exacerbates and enlarges  those “the one that got away” stories. 

Moon in Virgo squares Mars in Sagittarius 

Get all the facts, every detail and refine your quest, your search for perfection, the perfect education, trip, product, philosophy while Mars is in Sagittarius. Write it all down, journalism is important.

Virgo Moon opposite Neptune in Pisces  

Yes dreams do come true, Reality and the dream can be balanced. Fall in love with a Virgo, why don’t you? Bernie Sanders is a Virgo. Is it too good to be true? Is it real or my imaginaton?

Moon conjuncts Jupiter in Virgo later at night

YOU’RE THE REAL THING!

Jupiter magnifies and OPTIMIZES everything it touches so this is a good day to get your exercise, diet and health regime together. Relax a little Virgo’s. 

These aspects  of Moon Jupiter Neptune can bring on other worldly connections in meditations and dreams. It is easier to  tap into a very high level of consciousness which must then be brought down from the “Holy Mountain.” and integrated in to your daily life.

You may simply get all high and project your SOUL MATE needs onto someone.  

Pluto will turn Retrograde April 18. This is a  powerfully resourceful time.  Line up all your assets on all levels and work on fulfilling your long-term career plans when Pluto goes Direct Sept. 26. 

 

Jupiter magnifies everything it touches so this is a good day to get your exercise, diet, taxes, organize your closet and plan your spiritual romantic creative and practical goals and dreams.

Virgo Moon inconjuncts Venus in Aries / next day EDT/ GMT 

This one may sting, criticism can ruin a romance. Timing is everything.

Had a fait accompli today of something I have asked for, for awhile. It’s for someone else not myself, but someone very close to me. So it was like, YES! And it was above what I’d asked for in some ways. Even better. So don’t give up, sometimes the universes response takes longer. 

DEEPER SPIRITUAL MEANINGS

I am sensing that we all need to look deeply into our own psyche’s to root out  dark, heavy karmic stagnations from old wounds which may be blocking  your progress.  I just went deeper into something I felt but couldn’t get to without some assitance. It was something which had nothing to do with the issue. You may want to use this indirect/ deflection technique to get to the heart of the matter.

Mars and Pluto Retrograde Reboot, by Tara Greene

MARS Retrograde is so important, it’s a rare, every two-year event. MARS is the planet of men, energy, action, war, sex, testosterone, passion, drive, competition, aliens and it’s turning RETROGRADE April 17- June 29 at 8 degrees Sagittarius conjunct the Archangel Ariel. 

Mars Retrograde, Astrology Tara Greene

PLUTO planet of soul,the collective unconscious, the shadow, depth psychology, power, control, PLUTOCRATS, sex, money, taxes, secrets, is also turning Retrograde for his annual trip back home to Hell/Hades his own TURF on April 18 @ 17+ degrees of CAPRICORN until September 26th.

As with all RETROGRADES it is not a good time to start anything purely New. But anything that you have been working is fine, for retooling.

This will be a time for major SOUL-SEARCHING in the world. The Masculine is seriously looking at itself and wondering if it wants to keep up the macho warrior image anymore. The Plutocracy is getting challenged. People are pissed off. This a regroup of resource before the war starts when Mars goes Direct.  A ton of deep-seated anger which has been seriously repressed by the Plutocracy will be spewing out. This is a veritable volcano waiting to explode at the end of June as Mercury turns direct. Britain is also planning to leave the EU at the same time. Interesting isnt it?

Literal earthquakes could be very likely as well. We have just seen a bunch in JApan. 

A great time for indepth therapy and readings. I am here to help guide you.

MARS is the traditional ruler of ARIES and SCORPIO. PLUTO is the modern ruler of SCORPIO.

The partners in crime are both RETROing together.  MARS is taking us back to their co-owned sign of Scorpio May 27 util August 2nd. The points where MARS turns RETRO and DIRECT carry quite a clout. We’ll examine these. 

This is a  REBOOT, REACTIONARY TIME. It will get very feisty with lots of fighting and nasty underhanded power plays. We will be seeing RED.

Remember last summer of 2015 when Saturn made his last Scrape through Scorpio? This one could be even stronger. more, deeper, heavier shadow and Soul work coming up. 

ARIES and SCORPIO peeps you will be most affected by this transit although we all will be. Look at your natal chart to see which houses Aries and SCORPIO are in your natal chart to see how you will be affected.

Mars going Retrograde through your 12th house has a very different effect than Mars going retrograde in your 10th house or 4th house. 

EVERYTHING will rewind, change, redefine, will be reviewed, during Mars retrograde. Mars Retrograde has an element of rooting for the underdog, the weakling, the one you didn’t think was strong enough. 

MARS Retrograde is repressed anger and actions, that will bounce back.  Mars Retrograde energy turns inward, like a self-inflicted wound. This Mars Retrograde will make us feel lethargic, like we have no energy, no momentum. We could be feeling hysterically competitive, cruzing for a fight, war mongering, kicking and screaming like a spoiled child having a temper tantrum over loss of power and control issues. Mars Retrograde’s rulership of Scorpio indicated past reviews of  taxes, other people’s money and secrets. Sounds familiar. 

A quick check on those Presidential candidates:

HILLARY CLINTON: 

Mars will RETROGRADE from her Natal 6th house of work, service, “humility” health, back down into her 5th house of leadership, creative self-expression, children, love affairs, willpower; cross her natal Jupiter at 0 degrees Sagittarius where she is supposed to be telling the truth. Mars turns DIRECT and stations exactly on her KARMIC SOUTH NODE at 23 degrees SCORPIO! This is where Hillary is the weakest. Everyone’s South Node represents the karma of the past. 

I do believe that Hilary will be getting a karmic kick in the ass because of her secrets, lies, taking big corporate money. Something will be hacked out and end her run for president or severely slow her progress and cripple her. Remember Hillary has SUN CHIRON VENUS MERCURY and the SOUTH NODE in Scorpio.

DONALD TRUMP:

Will have MARS RETROGRADE through his natal 4th house of his childhood, roots, foundation, his mother, his unconscious. Mars turns and stations DIRECT right on his I.C. his 4th house which also affects his HIGH NOON Worldly FAME/ M.C. his highest power in the world. Mars also squares his own natal Mars in his 12th house at 26 degrees but on his Ascendant in LEO. This could mean Donald could gain a lot of momentum after Mars turns direct, although he may have to do it independently of the powers that be lobby against him. He has already said he would run as an independent.

BERNIE SANDERS

Has Mars going Retrograde in his First house and turn Direct there as well. Mars goes Direct very close to Bernie’s ASCENDANT at 19 degrees SCORPIO. This gives him rebound power as Mars turns Direct at end of JUNE. Mars will twice oppose in Retrograde and Direct Bernie’s Natal Uranus at 0 degrees Gemini in his 7th house, {directly opposite Hillary’s Jupiter  BTW} in conjunction with his natal SATURN at 28 degrees TAURUS also in his 7th house of “others.” He will be taken seriously {Saturn} as a revolutionary { Uranus} higher consciousness leader. He will have to bring on all of his Natal Martial fighting mad energy to embody leadership. The people will be fighting mad too. 

MARS turns direct at 23 degrees SCORPIO which will also inconjunct {quincunx, 150 degrees, a difficult aspect } his own NATAL MARS  in ARIES  at exactly 23 degrees in his 5th house of creativity, will power, self-expression. Bernie’s Natal Moon is at 19 degrees Aries conjunct his MARS. This is a difficult aspect, Bernie may be much under fire during this time. he must show his capabilities as a leader and his strength if he can stay the course. 

In AMERICAS NATAL SIBLEY CHART,

MARS goes RETRO in the countries own 12th house of unconsciousness, addictions, self-undoing, oil, secret enemies, delusions, mental illness, institutions, fear, false prophets, glamour. Unravelling all of that. 

MArs turns DIRECT  squaring the U.S, MOON at 27 degrees AQUARIUS in their third house of communications, The Moon always symbolizes the people. Very interesting. The people want a revolution, they want change, they want enlightened higher consciousness, and equal rights for all.  

The people will clamour for Revolution and a civil war make break out. There will be more and more resistance and upheavals. The time has come.

LILITH, opposite SUN, Priapus, sex, Mars Retrograde

Have you been feeling more intensely sexual lately?

This may be because of Lilith, both Mean and True, Dark Goddesses of women’s independence and sexuality are both within one degree at 25-26 degrees LIBRA. 

THE SUN is at 25-26 degrees ARIES opposite to LILITH. The LIGHT And DARK Forces are both with us. This is good, it helps bring balance to an erotically charged time. As the Sun is also conjunct to PRIAPUS, the ancient God of very erotic sexual love. Priapus is a point of perigee in the moon’s orbit and he is always Lilith’s opposite side or shadow. Lilith is defined as the Moon’s apogee, the most distant point on its elliptical orbit of the Earth, and Priapus is astronomically opposite – the perigee or closest point to the Earth.

Lilith apogee Tara Greene

Lilith’s energy is primarily sexual. The Ancient Goddesses took many lovers as that was her prerogative.  We now know that it’s also a biological necessity. There were those who stayed in pairs for life before the Patriarchy institution of marriage.  Women are multi-orgasmic unlike men. The Patriarchal religion threw Lilith out symbolically and made her into a demon or vampire as a psychological metaphor because they were using sexuality as a means to control women and men. This came from a deep-seated felt powerlessness and inferiority complex from men compared to women and the Great Mother.  This explains Lillith’s place as the projection of men’s own fears of their own, virility and self-worth projected negatively onto the Feminine. It’s always the woman’s fault.

PRIAPUS , was an ancient male phallic God of virility and fertility who was also protector of gardens, vineyards and orchards. Priapus’ parents were Dionysus, God of sex , wine and intoxication and Aphrodite/Venus Goddess of love. Nice family.

His enormous genitals ensured good luck and fortune and he was a patron to all who were in need of luck, especially men and women searching for sexual satisfaction or fuck luck- sorry I couldn’t resist. Yet he was rejected by women because his penis was too huge. Size matters negatively as well. He also is associated somewhat with homosexuality. He is LILITH’S literal shadow. PRIAPUS is  Lilith’s Patriarchal projection mirrored back on themselves, a repressed sexuality too, or fear of men’s erotic sexuality.

  LILITH                                                                                               PRIAPUS 

 

Priapus conjunct the SUN can also symbolize the healing, positive, masculine erotic sexuality which welcomes Lilith and all women {and men} to be free to express themselves. This SUN/Priapus conjunction in ARIES opposite to Lilith April 14 and 15th in LIBRA brings repressed sexuality out into the light. It brings the potential of healing the split in the “marriage basket.” 

Priapus can bring out a healthy enjoyment of both parties sexuality through a positive male expression when in balance and harmony by honoring Lilith by fulfilling her sexual expression first. A woman who is sexually fulfilled showers a man with amrita, translated as SOMA or nectar of the Gods or rather Goddesses. This nectar that a woman gives off  from a place of sexual bliss mixed with her menstrual blood is the mystical Fountain of Youth, and sacred sacred elixir of immortality.  The masculine must function in service to the feminine first not to his own pleasure or ego to reach nirvana. 

MANTAK CHIA, the oriental and Buddhist traditions teach men how to retain their semen and not to orgasm during sex. This is tantric sexuality.  This is a healthy expression of Priapic energy. 

As MARS, the planet of Sex, energy and drive is slowing down to turn RETROGRADE April 17 at 8+ degrees SAGITTARIUS  – June 29 where it stops at 23 degrees SCORPIO on the heels of this powerful opposition it bodes well for a change in the sexual weather, for a change in our most intimate relationships and positions. It means reversing, revealing, renewing, reviewing, re-doing, rewriting sexual politics.

 Lilith of course refused the Missionary position, she refused to be subordinate to Adam.  Taking the planetary “as above, so below” lesson.

See this MARS Retrograde as a sexual initiation. I was taught about indigenous Native American societies which were similar to  Polynesian and Aboriginal societies where sex is totally natural, with no taboos, inhibitions or shame. Once tribal members reached puberty they would be taken to a “Fire Man” or “Fire woman” who had a very respected place in the society whose job it was to teach the young person about their own sexuality, and how to please the other, so that they would have experience knowledge and respect for the other sex, and this was done over time.  Use this Mars Retrograde to go back to the beginning as if you were a scared horny virgin teen and have beginners mind about sex. 

Get yourself back to the Garden and insert yourself and your lover as ADAM and LILITH. Rewind this story before the patriarchal propaganda. Be whole, open joyous, natural, ready to devote yourself to your female lover whole heartedly. The natural order has given women the multi-orgasmic equipment for a Divine reason. Explore it, discover it. The key is for the masculine to totally honor the goddess, the DIVINE feminine so that she may reward him with her love, her desire, her energy and her gifts. 

For some of you this may be perfectly natural and normal. For many of you. ??.   Experiment be open. 

As with all Mars Retrograde energies which occur only once every two years. The sex drive will be lower and can be frustrated and repressed. Men, especially should use this time to rediscover their natural energy in all things, work, play, passion. 

For your knowledge. The U.S.’s Natal PROGRESSED MARS turned Retrograde on July, 19, 2006 at 18+ degrees of LIBRA in AMERICA’S 10th house of worldly fame.

MARS  will be RETROGRADE in the U. S. Natal Chart until May 9, 2086 when MARS stations at zero degrees LIBRA !  That’s 80 years of America’s energies being repressed, slowed down, internally at war instead of externally. NOTE That PLUTO is Squaring that Retrograde Mars  now still at 18 degrees LIBRA.  This symbolizes a breakdown of american’s soul  and its power structure, its energy. 

I peeked ahead to look at the Progressions and transits for ELECTION DAY NOvember 8 2016 and wow. 

So let me know what you think about this LILITH  PRIAPUS  MARS RETROGRADE?
