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.

Note the Mercury record label.  The Fool #0 & #22

This 60’s album has the masculine/feminine balance.                                    The Magician #1 in the Tarot

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.

Kundalini Yoga Tara Greene astrology

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.

Read my articles on awakening Kundalini energy on the Cosmic Intelligence Agency site

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.

SNAKE YOGA by Kathleen Graham

Bye Bye B.B. King, The blues will never die.

Blues legend B.B. King passed away today at the age of 89 from a series of mini-strokes. He had fought diabetes for thirty years. 

B.B. King early Tara Greene

“He is without a doubt the most important artist the blues has ever produced,” wrote Eric Clapton in his 2008 auto-biography. Coming from ‘the God of guitar” that is saying a lot.

B.B. grew up on a rural Mississippi cotton plantation and his early life was that of the very traditional poor cotton-picker hard labor blues singers. Influenced by early blues guitarists Blind Lemon Jefferson and Lonnie Johnson, Riley’s first recording was in 1940 when he was only 15.

His most famous hit was The Thrill is Gone.B.B. in 1969 although he produced an enormous wealth of albums. 

B.B.  was the hardest working musician, touring constantly, spending  more than 65 years on the road. He played more than 300 shows a year until cutting back to around a 100 during the last decade. He did everything in excess, like his name,the King, he had gambling, womanizing and workaholism issues.

He was continuously creative, producing ten albums between 1995 and 2008. During that time he won eight of his Grammy Awards, five of them in the best traditional blues album category. In 1995, King received Kennedy Center Honors from President Bill Clinton. 

His famous guitar Lucille was made famous by Gibson guitars who created the B.B. King Lucille in 1982. B.B. influenced an entire new generation of white audiences in the 60’s when he was put on the bill of Bill Graham’s psychedelic rock concerts because he was a huge fan.

Married twice, he has 15 children from multiple women and had over 50 grandchildren.

I had the good fortune and the honor to meet B.B. backstage at the concert in Phoenix Arizona in 87 which was filmed in U2’s Rattle and Hum documentary. He seemed like the most genuine, humble man. Apparently he never made enemies with anyone, that says a lot.

Where do B.B.’s talents come from? Do the blues jump out at us from his chart?

Born Riley B. King Sept 16 1925. I do not have a birth time, I have rectified his time to 3:00 am.

B.B. King Astrology Tara Greene

B.B. is a quadruple Virgo which explains the hardest-working musician in show business for decades. Virgo is also associated with ill-health issues and intelligence. B.B. was noted for always learning.

B.B.’s Moon in Virgo is conjunct Mercury. He poured his emotions-the Moon out through his music. He was a master communicator, salesman, and a highly intelligent man. 

Mars conjunct his Virgo Sun was opposite Uranus in Pisces. B.B. was an original artist and a man who forged his own path and style. This aspect made B.B. prone to ill-health. Virgo rules the digestive system. His passion was work, work, work and perfecting his gifts. Mars in Virgo is also very humble, a servant of the people, he wanted to please them. Mars in Virgo is also insecurity, shyness. These aspects also shows difficulties with money.  Sun opposite Uranus, B.B.  loved computers.

With his Saturn in Scorpio on the I.C. or most private part of his life, his roots, his childhood is a heavy load to carry. B.B. lost his mother at an early age, there was dire poverty and hard work. He was forced to be mature and independent from an early age. His father or lack of a father was a key point in his make-up. I believe this is the key to why B.B. sang the blues. Saturn is traditional and historical. It’s a black man’s heritage from Mississippi, it is the roots of black culture, it is a way out. 

Saturn in Scorpio makes one endure all kinds of ups and downs, with huge emotional upheavals but incredible endurance and will. His Venus in Scorpio describes his large sexual appetites and a love of money. His songs were about love and loss surely a Venus in Scorpio motif.

His North Node was in Leo- B.B. along with his Neptune planet of creativity, spirituality and soul. B.B. was meant to be KING, just like his name. He was a larger than life figure, a big man, a natural star who loved to perform. He oozed emotion out of his famed guitar Lucille. He manifested his spiritual goal of being the king through his heart, his will and his huge soul. He received the fame and fortune he so richly deserved. 

B.B. also had Pluto in Cancer conjunct the Fixed star Sirius opposite to Jupiter in Capricorn which symbolizes success and wealth. Pluto- Jupiter is longevity and the people s’ adoration. B.B. had an incredibly long career, reaching so many generations. 

Venus rules the kidneys, and the Moon rules the pancreas.

at HIS DEATH  May 14 2015

Venus rules the kidneys, and the Moon rules the pancreas. Both of these planets indicate diabetic issues. Venus in Scorpio indicates death from diabetes. Leo rules the heart, heart failure is a Leo issue.

Pluto was transiting his Natal Pluto, that is a beautiful soul returning home. 

Saturn Retrograde was exactly squaring B.B.’s Moon, his spiritual, intuitive side, indicating a karmic ending, an emotional completion, at 89 a life very well lived. 

For the rectified Time I chose. Jupiter was passing over B.B.’s Ascendane, another regal royal King returning to his eternal rest, journey and learning. 

Chiron the wounded Healer is opposite to B.B.’s Mars Sun conjunction in Virgo.  A sense of the wounded healer, finally healed, whole and complete in Pisces. 

B.B.’s music will love on and inspire generations into the future. The Blues will never die. ” As long as people have problems, the blues can never die” said B.B. and he was right. 

Singing, wailing and sounding your hurt your feelings is extremely healing. 

Thank you B.B. for gifting the world with so much creativity and so much heart.

3 o’clock Blues B.B. King 1950

One of B.B.’s best performances 

Energies are intense, getting grounded weekend

I was hearing from other psychics that everyone was feeling really exhausted for the last 48 hours. Have you been feeling really exhausted, nauseous or dizzy?

Yes The Mars Saturn energy were intense. How did you feel it?

I was feeling fine all day Thursday May 14. I went on a very lovely MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR birthday event for a very special lady.

The original MMT the free for all LSD inspired surreal film by the Beatles premiered on November 27 1967. Interestingly enough Venus was at 18 degrees of LIBRA on that date. Uranus is now exactly opposite to that at 18 degrees of ARIES. There’s something happening here.

The album and film contained some great songs including All You Need Is Love, I am The Walrus and Strawberry Fields Forever written by John Lennon and Penny Lane, Fool On The Hill and Hello Goodbye by Paul McCartney.  

the Beatles tara Greene

I was hired to read tarot cards on the magical tour bus which took 35 ladies to Prince Edward County near Picton and the famous Sandbanks park.

The Drake Hotel Tara greene

They invited me to have lunch with them at the new Drake Devonshire Hotel outpost which is really beautiful. The birthday lady was beautiful, fabulous as was her famous sister too.

But right after I finished reading I came back and i felt totally exhausted. I started crying once I cam home. I was feeling nausea and horrible. I went to bed. I was dreaming about trying on hats and Ed Sheeran made an appearance in my dream, he does get around these days. 

I felt sick and dizzy when i woke up. My husband has felt it too. We both get this from coronal mass ejections and the weirdness which is going on from CERN. You need to be aware of how they are messing with the magnetics of the earth! I am very sensitive to this stuff. I went on FB and a friend of mine messaged me saying hey all the psychics I know are feeling totally exhausted and can’t figure out why.

there is very heavy stuff going on out there, psychic shields UP at all times. 

 May 16

the Moon has entered TAURUS. thats good I felt that Mars Saturn opposition.  How did it feel to you?  Taurus moon is very grounding.  Taurus is ruled by Venus and loves all things sensuous, valuable, luxurious. Taurus is earthy, stubborn, resourceful. My daughter showed my this pic earlier and I thought it was funny. The energy is pretty light and positive today after the early morning Moon inconjunct to Saturn. It’s alright as long as you remember to stay positive.

I will be doing the water blessings healing ceremony in the afternoon at 2:48 pm EDT please join in and do your own and send the blessings out to all the people.

“As above, so below” news, Dragons and Dreams

Yes Mercury is in GEMINI its own sign and slowing down to go Retrograde  May 18 on a New Moon. Here’s the “As above, so below” News. 

Mercury the planet is literally Mercury the toxic alchemical metal. On May 11 @ 3:17 pm in Simi Valley close to Los Angeles, HAZMAT firefighters were called  because of a Mercury spill at this location. Several people were evacuated from their homes! Here’s the Astrology chart of the event.

-see link to news item below 

Mercury spill Astrology Tara Greene

Mercury is in Gemini at 11+ degrees, widely opposed to Saturn in Sagittarius which is Retrograde. Mercury is squaring Neptune in Pisces  indicates that perhaps someone was spaced out, high, emotionally out of it and not paying attention who caused the spill. Apparently the Mercury spill was caused by some electrical equipment. That is Uranus which is sextiling Mercury as is Jupiter in Leo which also indicates excess, drama. Mercury also squares the vertex a karmic intake point. 

These degrees are opposite to where Pluto was 12 degrees on 9/11. Saturn was at 14 degrees of Gemini at the World Trade Centre take down. Mercury rules the Mid-Heaven or world fame point. This is conjunct to the North Star.  

Sometimes you need to take the poison to get the immunity. You know what I mean?

Children and adults get Mercury poisoning in their systems all the time in vaccinations. Nobody thinks this is a toxic danger. I wonder why?

MOON WISE

The Moon is in Pisces so we are sweetly dreaming, row, row, rowing gently down the stream of consciousness.

May 13 the Moon makes 2 sweet sextiles to Pluto and the Taurus SUN and a Picasso painting {art} sold for a record amount {Pluto= wealth from the dead}. Picasso was a Scorpio with 4 planets + Chiron in Taurus.

Inbetwixt that the PIsces Moon kisses Chiron-

it’s like having the Great Mother Goddess kiss your boo-boos.

Speaking of the Great Mother, I attended a powerful Women’s Priestess initiation which I can’t really talk about on Mother’s Day. I was reunited me with an old teacher I hadn’t seen in about 22 years. I was asked which Goddesses I was called to serve. One was ISIS, the Great Ancient Egyptian great Goddess, one was the Hindu Goddess Mahalakshmi, Goddess of wealth, beauty and the arts and the Chinese Goddess Quan Yin of great Compassion.

WHITE DRAGON DREAM

Dragon Power dreams Tara Greene

Then last night I had this dream. I am at a modern concrete building. It is a spiritual retreat. There are attendants dressed like Sufi’s in all white with turbans. I go outside and there is a beautiful blue sky and sunshine. I look up and I see a huge white dragon. I am stunned. The dragon looks at me and dives right down towards me. I rush straight forwards across this field to meet the dragon, I know it will not harm me. The dragon flies lower and straight towards me and implodes as it goes right through me. I am invested with the White Dragon’s energy. I look up and I see it now looks like a balloon, or a huge puppet it’s form is deflated. I understand it is formless as I have been given the white dragons powers. I haven’t even watched Game of Thrones yet! Then there is a huge cleansing downpour.

But then I remembered that Quan Yin rides a dragon.

SO do watch your dreams while the Moon is in Pisces until May 13 @ 10:12 pm PDT/ MAy 14 @ 1:12 am EDT.

Sending you dragon dream wishes too.

Mars Astrology Tara Greene

 

 

SIGN BY SIGN AFFECTS 

ARIES

Your ruler Mars,in your solar 3rd house, hypes you up and you may be unable to wind down. You may be excessively argumentative and defensive but you could use the energy to win any debate.  You can bi-locate being in two places at once. 

TAURUS 

Mars in your 2nd solar house.Time to ask for a raise, increase your self-confidence and improve your public speaking skills. You need to look at self-defeating mental patterns and balance them during the Retrograde. 

GEMINI

Mars is in your 1st Solar House so U are in the spotlight and super passionate. The Retrograde will hit you hard. Definitely stay chill, its good to back track and don’t move forward until the entire Retrograde and shadow period is over. 

CANCER

Mars in you 12th house may create difficulty sleeping and disturbing dreams. Write them down and do dream work especially during the Retrograde as this could produce amazing breakthroughs of old unconscious karmic memories. Family arguments may escalate.  It can be a healing time to do family shadow work. Talk it out, don’t suppress it.

SCORPIO 

Mars in your 8th house is the natural Scorpio house. This gives your breathing space. You can detach from your usual emotional intensity and dialogue with your sub-personalities which could unleash a lot of demons. This is a very sexual and creative time for you.

PISCES 

Mars is in your 4th house. This can produce arguments at home. Battling inner sub-personality dialogues should be seen as fodder for meditating upon. Use this energy to creatively re-arrange your living space or  move.  If you feel too mentally agitated meditation is the answer but it may be harder to calm your mind.

Mars in Gemini. Red Alert May 14/15

The two most evil of ancient planets Mars and Saturn are moving into an exact opposition May 14 @ 11:02 pm PDT/May 15 @ 2:03 am EDT/May 15 @ 6:03 am GMT. at 2 degrees Sagittarius/Gemini. 

RED ALERT!!! This is very destructive, negative energy.

The markets may crash. Airline Explosions, attacks, violence, volcanic explosions, crazy weather, anger.  This will cause everyone to be angry,irritable, vindictive, defensive, on edge and easily provoked. 

Mars in Gemini is associated with the card of the 9 of swords in the Thoth Tarot  

9 of swords Mars in Gemini Tara Greene   

The 9 of swords from the Ghetto Tarot a modern photography deck from Haiti

Ghetto Tarot 9 of swords

The Nine of Swords shows a woman with her head in her hands, sitting up in her bed. She appears to have just woken up from a bad nightmare, and is obviously upset, fearful and anxious following her dream. Nine swords hang on the wall behind her.

BE VERY CAREFUL on this day.  Especially if you have planets, cusps etc on these degrees or square to them at 0-4 degrees Mutable PISCES/VIRGO. 

0-4 degrees Taurus is an inconjunct point to Saturn. this is a very irritable point.

0-4 degrees Scorpio is the inconjunct point from Mars. same for this one. 

NOTE a CARDINAL CROSS from VENUS in Cancer opposite Pluto in Capricorn T-square to Uranus conjunct the Moon and the South Node opposed to the North Node n Libra. 

This in itself means, shakedowns in the money markets, road rage, violence against women, unexpected chaos, explosions, terrorism, volcanoes, tsunamis, assassinations and accidents. 

Mercury Jupiter and Vesta are in a Yod to Pluto as well. The Finger of God points to PLUTO. The two are pressuring Pluto and irritating the Lord of the Underworld even more.

Both MERCURY And VENUS are now Out of Bounds and are acting like mavericks. Bank robberies anyone?

The Sabian Symbol for Mars at 3 degrees of Gemini is related to ego-centralized Formalism. The sabian symbol of Saturn at 2 degrees of Sagittarius {because Saturn is  Retrograde}  is “White capped waves displaying the power of the wind over the sea. ” This speaks of the mobilization of unconscious energies under the pressure of spirit-pneuma the wind.

DEEPER MEANINGS

There is a Fixed Star at 2+ degrees of Sagittarius Tropical Zodiac where Saturn Retrograde is. Its named Isidis which is most likely connected to the Egyptian Goddess Isis. This star was called Jia Jan Ju Sur which means the forbidden Tree of Life in Eden in ancient Mesopotamian. The Star is the forehead of the constellation Scorpio, where the 3rd eye would be. This speaks to me of  a very powerful animal brain, a primeval 6th sense that could be tapped into and awoken.  The nature of this star is of Mars-Saturn which is exactly the planets involved. This implies super critical focus, laser like vision, like surgeons have. If you use this red laser like vision correctly you may cut through many obstacles.

Mars in Gemini, Psychopomp androgyny

May 11 Mars enters GEMINI until June 24 MENTAL CHATTER

Mars’s in the Twin sign draws us into the mental planes, the airy elemental realms, into thinking, a lot. We will be able to have eloquence of the tongue, and fluidity of the mind in duality.

We will have our brains flamed.  The Passion will be mind centered, and after all, it’s all in the mind, anyway.  Mercury is consciousness. Everything IS consciousness. There will be endless talking, and questioning, being curious; mucho mental flexibility and changes of mind.

Don’t expect commitments during this time. it is more an enquiry or a debate into what we want/don’t want. 

We’re in for about six weeks of Mercurial Androgynous psychopomp guidance.

Mercury is also in Gemini now. Mercury will go Retrograde May 18 @ 6:40 pm PDT/ 9:40 pm EDT/ May 19 @ 1:40 am GMT.Mercury is Retrograde until June 10th.

Mercury’s Retrograde motion will also have effect Mars while it is in Gemini.

GEMINI is a much more complex sign that is usually thought of these days. Mercury was originally a psychopomp or guide of souls from this world to the next.

Vision of Hermes Trimestigus by Johfra Bosschart,

What is a psychopomp? They are creatures, spirits, angels or deities in many religions whose responsibility is to escort newly deceased souls into the afterlife. They do not judge, they are their to provide safe passage. They are also associated with birds, whip-poor-wills, horses, ravens, stags, dogs, crows, owls, sparrows, and cuckoos. 

In Jungian Psychology the psychopomp mediates between the unconscious and conscious realms. In dreams the psychopomp is w wise man or woman, or sometimes a helpful animal. shamans are also psychopomp and they also help initiate souls from the spirit into the physical world at birth. 

PSYCHOPOMPS 

ANUBIS the jackel headed God,first greeted dead Egyptians.  The Egyptian Goddess Hathor, the Milky Way is her sacred breast-milk.  Hekate the Crone Goddess at the crossroads,  Azrael, the Angel of Death in Jewish and Christian mythology is a psychopomp in Islamic Mythology. The Angel Gabriel. The Morrigan, a Celtic shape-shifting Goddess of transitions is known to appear as ravens and crows. The horse Goddess Epona. The Valkyries in Norse myth were also psychopomp’s. Kalma is  a Finnish Goddess of the dead. 

Mercury is androgynous, and androgyny is in the news. Androgyny was classically shown as a human with both sexes and it does occur rarely in nature. People born this way were considered to be very powerful psychic beings and revered.

Bruce Jenner’s sex-change means he is becoming an androgyne.. He will be both male and female even if he identifies as female because his body, mind, spirit,DNA and history are still mainly masculine. If Bruce had been born into Native Indigenous cultures when they were intact, he would  have been called a twin-spirit and allowed to wear women’s clothes and to do women’s type of chores. He would be considered to be a shaman. 

I wish people would use the androgyne term rather thank transgendered which is a description but not an explanation. Do you know what I mean? 

We all have both masculine and feminine aspects in us anyways. All Males begin life as females and testosterone makes them turn into males. The range of more masculine females or more feminine male is purely chemistry, its our hormones. The Age of Aquarius which we are entering is an air sign and more androgynous. If one believes in past lives then we may have been a man in a past life and in this one, we are female but the past life memory may make it easier for these women to naturally be stronger, more independent, more masculine.

Androgyny is important in the alchemical work of being whole. Androgyny helps us  to incorporate  the Beloved within ourselves. This is the true sacred marriage within which attracts the outer beloved.

We will be able to enter the underworld of Hades, the Underworld more easily with Mars in Gemini during the retrograde phase, so set your sites on digging for diamonds in the soul mine.

It’s very important for all of us to go on the shadow journey now and attempt to marry our selves. Saturn will soon re-enter Scorpio and I predict the 3 month period from mid- June to mid-September to be a time of some of the most intense deepest inner work revelations there will be for awhile.

You will likely feel more  jittery, stressed and your mind will be racing. You will need to remember to breathe. GEMINI is the lungs. Remember to BREATHE, CONSCIOUSNESS AND THE BREATH ARE ONE.

TIRIEL is the Angel of Mercury. You can call on him to help guide you.
