Gemini Ring of Fire Solar Eclipse “Royal Wedding”

GEMINI Ring of Fire SOLAR ECLIPSE JUNE 10 at 3:52 am PDT/ 7:52 am EDT/ 10:52 am GMT

The instant of greatest eclipse takes place June 10 at 10:41 GMT

The Ring of Fire Solar Eclipse in Gemini is a “Royal Marriage.”

Gemini is the archetype of the Lovers in the Tarot #6 . This Gemini Solar Eclipse puts a Ring on it in a sacred marriage union of the opposites. The Lovers card n the tarot is Gemini. A complex Mercury Retro ruled Eclipse we are recalibrating our minds and revisioning our dreams. Mars at 29 Cancer is critical opposite Pluto, explosive sublimated family secrets.

“Everything is dual; everything has poles;

everything has its pair of opposites.

Like and unlike are the same; opposites are identical in nature,

but different in degree.

Extremes meet; all truths are but half-truths;

all paradoxes may be reconciled.”

— The Kybalion.

The Moon moves Out of BOUNDS on Gemini Solar Eclipse and VENUS is also OOB

The Moon is in a wild freely emoting state and our receptive, emotional loving side is in a free wheeling state too. This is rather unusual and adds to the intrigue of the Ring of Fire eclipse.

GEMINI the Sacred Twins, the first AIR ELEMENT sign and symbolizes the first breath of life at birth.

Gemini is the winds in the sky. It is a detached, a Masculine or active element, a changeable, adaptable, Mutable sign. Gemini is duality, choices, self and other, partnes ,siblings, consciousness itself, communication, thinking and information, marketing and by extension all of our computers and social media. Gemini is the twin halves of the brain. Gemini rules our lungs.

REMEMBER TO BREATHE DEEPLY, get in touch with the BREATH of LIFE

GEMINI is ruled by the Planet MERCURY, or Hermes, a hermaphrodite, {Hermes/Aphrodite] a dual sexed Archetype. Mercury is the Mercurial, fleet footed winged messenger of the Gods. As Hermes he is THOTH to the Egyptians who taught humankind the secrets of immortality and to whom the famous “As above, so below.” maxim is attributed.

Mercury rules Wednesday. Mercury is also known as a Trickster in mythology ,like the Norse God Loki. The Trickster is known as Coyote in Native American tails.

How does your mind play tricks on you?

TAROT CARDS TO WORK WITH ON THE ECLIPSE

If you have a Tarot deck pull out these cards to act as Guides and Mascots for this meditation.

GEMINI is associated with the Trump Card #6 THE LOVERS.

THE LOVERS and the union of the inner Feminine and Masculine is what this eclipse energy is all about. If we are united within we are whole and complete. In the Tarot, Air is symbolized by swords, which cut through the tangle of distractions. All heroes and heroines must battle with their swords of discrimination.

MERCURY in the Tarot is the 1st Trump the MAGICIAN.

The word magician comes from the root word Magus, Magi, whose root word is Image, imagination. The Magician/Mercury is everyone’s internal magic wand. Just like in Harry Potter, your intention, your thoughts/sword, is your mental focus, your consciousness. Combined with desire/intent creates whatever you wish. This the Law of attraction. As you imagine or think, so mote it be. Consciousness is all that is, is everything that exists.

Mercury is RETROGRADE in GEMINI ruling this eclipse and tightly conjunct the SUN. We are recalibrating our minds to go in a new NORTH NODE direction. We need to let go of the past the South Node in Sagittarius where Juno is

THE SUN and MERCURY meet on the 10th at 9:13 pm EDT which is called CAZIMI. Mercury at the heart of the sun is an auspicious golden initiation.

NEPTUNE in PISCES is squaring the Eclipse at 23+ degrees and ATHENA at 24 degrees.

This indicates we need to use our imagination and visualise new dreams, new creativity new compassion, clarity and connect in a spiritual way not just with our minds.

ECLIPSES come in series every 18+-19 years. The eclipse belongs to Saros Cycle #147 and is 23 of 80 eclipses in the series.

The first eclipse in this series started October 12, 1624

The previous one was May 31, 2003, May 19, 1985, May 9, 1967, April 28, 1949

Where were you in 2003? The eclipse cycle ends December 14, 2,327.

THIS ECLIPSE IS ALSO THE BEGINNING OF A 6 MONTH CYCLE WHICH CONCLUSED DECEMBER 4 ONA TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE AT 12 DEGREES SAGITTARIUS. What you planet now will cone to fruit in 6 months. AN eclipse effects can last 6 months to a year. Different astrologers have different theories about this.

THE MOON and VENUS are out of BOUNDS  on the eclipse.

12 am 6 am 12 pm 6pm

Jun 10 N22°51 23°27′ 23°58′ 24°25′

Jun 11 N24°48′ 25°37′ 25°22′ 25°32′

Jun 12 N25°37 25°38′ 25°34′ 25°26′

Jun 13 N25°13′ 24°55′ 24°32′ 24°5′

June 14 N23 34′ N22 58′ and VENUS is OUT OF BOUNDS TOO!

This indicates a freedom from conventions, and values. The Moon goes OOB on the day of the eclipse.

MARS the action planet is at the critical 29th degree of CANCER opposite PLUTO.

Mars submerged in water is holding onto old family resentments and this is a difficult aspect. Mars Pluto is dangerous energy. A fiery Solar Eclipse can ignite and heighten this energy. Pluto rules the Underworld. A bunch of criminals were just busted in a worldwide sting yesterday. That’s a positive use of this energy.

SATURN and CHIRON create a YOD to VESTA in VIRGO

VESTA in VIRGO at 15 degrees and JUNO in SAGITTARIYS conjunct the South Node

squares and oppose the Eclipse and Mercury  in a tight T-square. Vesta is about focus on the spirit and the practical matters of work service health, our pets, and budgets. VESTA rules investments. Be careful these days. SOLAR eclipses show in real daylight out in the open events.

JUNO is the Goddess of marriage and the Feminine Form of Genius especially in education and justice loving Sagittarius. Juno on the South Node is out ability to connect with ancient multi-dimensional Feminine philosophies, justice, ethics.

SATURN and URANUS plus CERES are squared off.

URANUS CERES conjunction at 12 degrees Taurus is trine VESTA.

We are in a tens time between holding onto the past and bravely jumping into a new h-tech revolutionary future.

The wounds that we have been hiding can be shared through our collective technology and we can focus on healing and keeping the flame of spirit sacred and live by continued focus and reverence.

LILITH AT 27 TAUUS is on ALGOL and trine to PLUTO.

This is a rebirth a transformation oof the denied “dark “ feminine sexuality raw power and demand for absolute equality in relationships. Algol’s reputation needs to be cancelled as the Demon star and reinstated as the beautiful Amazon warrioresses who fought against oppressive patriarchal tyrannies.

This is a powerful Solar eclipse. I have been feeling like my brains have been scrambled from this Mercury Retrograde and exhausted by MARS PLUTO opposition too. I had to cancel my Eclipse workshop.

Sending you all the best blessings on the Eclipse. I will be doing ceremony and mantras. Remember according to Tibetan Buddhists all Mantras made during a Solar Eclipse magnify a million times. Om MANI PADME HUM is the basic Buddhist mantra.

Mercury in Gemini, Home sweet Home

Sidney Hall / Public domain

Sidney Hall / Public domain

Mercury in Gemini again May 3 until JULY 11. Thats over 2 months of rapid fire communications. BUt the communicator planet it will turn RETROGRADE May 29 to June 22 from 24 degrees 41′ Gemini to 16 degrees 16′ Gemini.

This means Mercury Shadow period starts when Mercury hits 16 degrees on the 14th of May. But mercury Retrogrades can be used to review, rewrite, renegotiate all communications and social media things.

It is GEMINI appreciation time.

HEADS UP! there are two more Mercury Retrogrades this year and also September 27 to October 17 in LIBRA – 25 degrees 28′ to 10 degrees 10′ of the social network sign for those who love to plan ahead. Virgo this means you ruled by Mercury too.

Mercury rules Gemini, and every time Mercury returns to his daytime sign the planet/ God is incredibly happy. Mercury governs two signs Gemini and Virgo.

Gemini is the fleet-footed, and winged hatted and sandaled messenger of the Gods, he is the Ancient UPS, and a form of Amazon, the Internet, every salesperson, FTD Florists, the Mercurial trickster God. MERCURY, known as HERMES to the Greeks and THOTH to the Egyptians. 

Mercury in the Tarot is the Magician #1 because Mercury symbolizes our consciousness, thinking, analysis and communications.

Mercury’s metal is Mercury or QUICKSILVER like Gemini energies MERCURY used to be in thermometers, and in dental fillings. Mercury’s properties made it hard to pin down, which describe Gemini energies perfectly. Quicksilver is a toxic poison and an Alchemical metal as well. The Quicksilver Messenger Service were a band in the 60’s.

Mercury is a PSYCHOPOMP. I love that word. It means he can travel between the three worlds. This third dimensional world he can go visit Hades/Pluto in the Land of the Dead, Hades or the Underworld and return to the land of the living. Very few Gods even had this power. Shamans have the power to travel between the worlds as well.

Mercury’s symbol is like the caduceus.  Modern and ancient Medicine uses the caduceus to signify the healing profession. The caduceus was originally employed by Chiron and Asclepius as snakes were used to help heal people in Ancient Greece and snakes were used in the Oracles at DELPHI. These reptiles are magical animals of the Earth Goddess since always, two snakes entwined around the central staff or spine also symbolizes Yogic KUNDALINI sexual energy.The caduceus is an ancient symbol of DNA;  the twin poles of consciousness, balance and the combining of opposites in ALCHEMY to produce something entirely new. This symbol is a deep psychological image associated with GEMINI and mental health. Which is not usually what we think is associated with this sign. This also symbolizes the power of our minds to create our health as in modern Positive thinking or intention setting.  As Gemini follows the first earth sign Taurus it also symbolizes Mind over Matter. I just had an epiphany and got this while Mercury is in Gemini since yesterday!

Gemini is a dual AIR sign, and they never get old if their minds are stimulated.  Mercury is the frequent flyer and chief communicator between Mount Olympus, the above, the Conscious and the below.

Unconscious, Mercury/Hermes is a mediator, a listener, an eavesdropper, a go-between. In modern days, a MERCURY ruled person, and we all are, is a compulsive twitterer or FB junkie whose iPhone never leaves their body.

Mercury in the TAROT  is  the # 1 symbol, THE MAGICIAN /TRICKSTER

magician #1 The Muse Tarot #1 The Magian from The Muse Tarot

famous as COYOTE wisdom in Native American legends.

When your mind plays tricks on you…guess who is to blame?

HERMES is a hermaphrodite; His name means HERMES & APHRODITE Mercury is both male HERMES and a female VENUS/APHRODITE. 

The sign’s ruling planet comes HOME- when a planet is at home it feels, relaxed, in its own element, STRONG. Mercury in Gemini  stimulates nanosecond thinking, uber talking- hope you have a great chat plan during these Gemini times.

 PETER PAN is GEMINI’s God

Peter Pan is a symbol of what Psychologists called PEUR mentality. A childlike, fun time, curious and non-committal.  There may be much mental Ado about not much during Gemini times. Gemini loves to play devils’ advocate.

But ya gotta love ’em, they are very charming and move too fast for you to pin them down. Yes, social butterflies those Gemini’s are…

Their main thrust during GEMINI season is to gather information, move like the wind, gather info, be mentally stimulated, ever young, upbeat, charming as hell.

Mercury is the God of merchants, the word Mercury is contained in that word, Thieves, pirates, travelling and snake-oil salesman,  Gemini’s are actors,  open, changeable, quick-witted, exciting, philanderers, shysters,

VENUS is, of course, Retrograde in Gemini.

so, can’t make up your mind between Frank, Harry, or Justin?   or which job to take? or which school to go to or which….or that old friend/ lover enemy, frenemy just re-entered your life again, what to do about that? or what to do…

 If only they/we can get over the tendency to do one or the other ANGEL or DEVIL  DUALITY is their thing, But the TWINS are not opposites but complementary pairs. 

In the TAROT the symbol of GEMINI is associated with THE LOVERS

and the opposite sign of GEMINI is SAGITTARIUS which is associated with ALCHEMY again back to HERMES/ MERCURY.

Gemini Lunar Eclipse, healing the split, November 30

Gemini Penumbral Lunar Eclipse November 30 @ 1:29 am PST/ 4:39 am EDT/ 9:39 am GMT

The eclipse falls exactly on the U.S. Uranus planet of shock chaos freedom revolution and inventions. It is the shock and awe of the new planet. The Eclipse also squares CHIRON the WOUNDED HEALER at 9 degrees PISCES and straddles the U.S. Ascendant at 12 Sagittarius and the DC at 12 Gemini. Gemini is a sign of duality in oneness, it is communications, the media, our heads, our consciousness. A Lunar Eclipse affects our emotional bodies and this eclipse can trigger more chaos in the U.S. Hopefully, this eclipse also signifies a way to start listening and not talking at, to heal the split between people, families, fake Neptunian news, and create revolutionary discussions where planet earth can begin to see there is no us and them. We need to heal this split somehow.

It also falls close to the 9/11 position of Saturn at 14 GEMINI and Pluto at 12 SAGITTARIUS.

The Eclipse is right on Joe Biden’s SATURN at 10 degrees GEMINI in his 7th house of marriage and all others indicating heavy responsability and maybe a health scare.

LUNAR ECLIPSES are internal, emotional and as the Moon symbolises the mood of the people the mood is split. NEPTUNE in PISCES also widely squares the SUN and MOON indicating much fake news, projection, VIRUSES, endings, secrets, mental illness, divisions and a tear in the fabric of consciousness.

Eclipse run in 18+ year cycles at similar degrees. This is a North Nodal Eclipse. The last one in this Saros Cycle 116 was November 20, 2002, at 27 Taurus connected to Fixed STAR ALGOL Medusa’s head. November 8, 1984 previous to that at 16+ TAURUS and before that October 29, 1966This was during the major Uranus Pluto conjunctions. November 1966 brings once more oppositions of Saturn to Uranus and Pluto with Mars once more conjunct Pluto and Uranus (November 16th-22nd) and opposing Saturn (November 21st)a tumultuous time in the U.S. and the world.

think back on what was going on in your life at that time.

The SABIAN SYMBOL for 9 degrees GEMINI from Dane Rhudyar http://www.mindfire.ca/An%20Astrological%20Mandala/An%20Astrological%20Mandala%20-%20Gemini%201-15.htm

PHASE 69 (GEMINI 9°): A QUIVER FILLED WITH ARROWS.

KEYNOTE: Man’s aggressive relationship to natural life, as a basis for survival and conquest.

The bow and arrows represent symbolically man’s ability to extend the scope of his conquest of nature and to kill enemies in order to build a larger base for the collective development of culture and organized society. Implied in the symbol of the arrow is the piercing of a target. The mind of man is essentially a trans-piercing power; it goes through the object toward which it is aimed. It seeks to go through and beyond the obstacles on its path, and this usually implies the destruction of the obstacle. At a higher level — as in the Zen practice of archery — the obstacle is the ego.

At this fourth stage of the fourteenth five-fold sequence of phases in the cyclic process of human existence, we are shown the archetypal symbol of Man, the Conqueror. It may be a conquest of outer nature, or that of instinctual drives and of the limiting power of the ego. It is always CONQUEST.”

Look at where the 8 degree SAGITTARIUS GEMINI falls in your chart to see how the eclipses will affect you directly. It falls the day after my birthday.

The eclipse is close to that Gemini significant degree of 13 Gemini VENUS STAR POINT in June which were also connected with the Pluto-Saturn conjunctions and oppositions in Capricorn for the last 500 years.

Edward Snowden, traitor or hero? Astrology analysis

I was interviewed by The Voice of Russia’s online paper recently and they askedme about what I see as Edward Snowden’s future.

Right after we started speaking on Skype, our connection cacked out and we were unable to reconnect.

Hmm, I wonder why.. 

Edward Snowden, the 30 year old former National Security Agency and CIA contractor is now a fugitive in Russia for revealing the truth to the world about how the U.S. secretly carries on covert  surveillance of its own people and governments around the world.

Edward Snowden Astrology chart Tara Greene

Snowden quoted the 4th and 5th amendments of the Constitution of the U.S. Article 12  and stated “I believe in the principle declared at Nuremburg in 1945; “Individuals have international duties which transcend the national obligations of obedience. Therefore individual citizens have the duty to violate domestic laws to prevent crimes against peace and humanity from occuring.”

People either Love, applaud and laud Edward for his bravery and patriotism or hate him and see him as a traitor and a spy. I wanted to check out his Astrology chart.

Edward Snowden’s chart and the chart of the United States are inextricably linked to each other.

Edward Snowden astrology Tara Greene

The inside chart is Edward Snowden’s Natal Chart  

born June 21 1983 at 4:42 am from his birth certificate in Elizabeth City North Carolina.

Edward is a Mercurial GEMINI SUN born at the very last “critical” degree of Gemini, sign of the fleet-footed Messenger, making him the ULTIMATE messenger of the God’s.

Edward’s Ascendant is at 12 degrees GEMINI-exactly the degree opposite the U.S. “Sibley” Natal chart’s Ascendant, so the U.S. and Edward’s direction is interfaced. Edward’s Mercury is also at 10 Gemini in the 12th house of the unconscious but conjunct the Ascendant. Edward has his Sun in the 1st house so he IS the Archetypal Mercurial Messenger. He identifies in that role. He has Mars, his direction, Mars is the Military, what he defends, at 24 degrees Gemini conjunct the Sun and the North Node which represents his Highest Spiritual Goal at 25 degrees GEMINI. 

The Ascendant, Mercury, the Sun, Mars, North Node conjunction makes him a quintuple communicator. The North Node is conjunct the POLE star, the star that all sailors navigate around. This is a very powerful symbol.

Edward’s highest evolutionary goal is to be a Light bearer, a way-shower for the rest of the world, through communicating a message that will have world-wide impact, in a direct, aggressive, defensive, Martial way.  This fits his situation perfectly.

The MOON is at 13 degrees SCORPIO in the 6th house.

The Moon is instincts, unconscious motivations, feelings. In Scorpio this speaks of power, secrecy, manipulation, control, espionage, surveillance, the shadow, danger, the thief, vendetta, death, change, transformation, through his work.  Also fits the situation to a T.

His Mercury and Ascendant is quincunx to his Moon indicating that he is at odds with his work, and being of service.

Edward’s Venus, his values, what he loves, how he loves, is in LEO at 14+ degrees which is actually the 15th and most powerful degree of Leo in the 3rd house. Venus in Leo is courage, daring, protecting what he loves, dramatic. He is proud, fearless, a leader, self- expressive, creative, very heart-felt, like a child playing a role. In the 3rd house, this is the natural house of communications.

Jupiter is at 3 degrees Sagittarius Retrograde, the Sign that it rules, so it is very strong, but held back or repeating a Karmic lesson in the 6th house.  Jupiter is BIG,truth, vision, the Higher Law, foreigners, teachers, philosophers, the military regalia. 

Uranus is conjunct Jupiter at 6 degrees also Retrograde. Both of them oppose Mercury so they are interconnected. Uranus is also conjunct the Descendent, the 7th house cusp, meaning Edward is always a cutting edge, revolutionary, freedom loving person.

The Jupiter/Uranus combo binds their energies so they amplify each other. This is a Super expansive, International, Hi Tech, innovator, rebel-Uranian, who MUST TELL THE TRUTH in Sagittarius.  Interesting the double Retrograde indicates that karmically Edward may have done something similar before or that he came back to wage a vendetta on those in power-Judges, or former Overlords who oppressed him in the past.

 CHIRON at 29 degrees Taurus, is conjunct to the famous Pleiades. Chiron the wounded healer, in the 12th house of the unconscious is opposite Jupiter indicating there is an Unconscious wound, a palpable, bodily sense for Edward, of what is right and wrong, what is truth. HE has a felt sense of being wounded unconsciously which triggers him to act in service, the 6th house to a greater Higher good.

Saturn at 27 degrees of Libra Retrograde in the 5th house of creativity, is conjunct Pluto at 26 degrees also Retrograde. Pluto conjunct Saturn is the hallmark of Edward’s generation who have all chosen to be born with this difficult, heavy, karmic soulful sense of JUSTICE- the sign of Libra.

Saturn is tradition, the Patriarchy and Pluto is the Lord of Death, change, transformation. The 5th house is the natural house of LEO, the Sun, the source, self- expression, drama, creativity, COURAGE. These 2 heavies Trine Mars, North Node and the Sun.  So this is an easy aspect and imbues Edward’s entire personality with this sense of heaviness, and deep soulful transformation as part of where he would express his innate love of freedom,truth and being courageous enough to risk his life for his beliefs- Mercury. 

NEPTUNE, in Edward’s 7th house of relationships, the higher octave of VENUS is at 27 degrees Sagittarius – exactly on the Galactic Center. Again this is a generational hallmark of all people born in the year before and after 1983. Neptune is where one is intuitive, one’s dreams, psychic energy, visionaries, faith, illusions, delusions, addictions,idealism, unbounded, glamour. Neptune as ruler of Pisces, energy is chameleon like, super sensitive, has no boundaries, is Christ’s symbol.

I personally believe that people with planets conjunct the Galactic Center are directly tuned into its’ vast multi-dimensional Black Hole energy. 

Neptune is of course opposed to Edward’s Mars, North Node and Sun in the 1st house. This makes Edward a virtual sponge, absorbing everyone’s energy around him, he can be a total chameleon blending in invisibly. He is a total  idealist.  Neptune’s energy at its highest expression is selflessness or martyrdom. He is an atheist but I feel he has great faith in a Higher Good, or at least in the power of telling the truth, ever the Sagittarius philosopher, and that is what motivates him. 

Edward’s MC or high Noon position is at 20 degrees Aquarius, the sign of technology, revolutionaries, freedom fighters, strong individuals who resonate with being part of the collective. They are unegotistical leaders. Planet Uranus rules his MC and it is placed in the 6th house of service conjunct Jupiter sign of truth telling.

I could belabor the point in his chart but it is so obvious to me, that Edward’s highest spiritual, karmic, goal was to do exactly  what he did. Expose the hi tech surveillance of the government to help the people. It’s all over his Natal chart, the fact of his being courageous, daring, secretive, being accepted by foreign countries-Jupiter for asylum. I think he is used to being alone with his Scorpio moon. He has always felt like an outsider.

I see that Edward Snowden is a very brave young man. Yes his life is on the line now and will be so for a very long time although I do believe that he will receive great honors down the road. Even a Nobel Peace prize.

Americans, Canadians and most of the people in the world are so naive. I really don’t know where this idea that the government is a benevolent agency that most people naively ascribe to, came from. Not many governments really ever really act on behalf of its citizens. That’s why the myth of King Arthur and the Court of Camelot is such a powerful ideal.

The ongoing squares of evolutionary energy at play now through the planets Uranus and Pluto, are dismantling the world’s governments and economies. The old PLUTOCRAT’S are bound to fall during these next few years. The Plutocracy in their covert surveillance is fighting to control every individual’s freedom and to grab everything on earth they can now, water, food, gold, oil that they can. This includes Muslim fundamentalists, that entire type of power control,that Fascist way of thinking, Big Brother attitude of the .0000%, the Federal Reserve, the New World Order which controls all the wealth and power in the world.  Remember Uranus and Pluto created the 60’s and were the planets that were responsible for the Renaissance in the 1500’s. Edward Snowden is acting as a personal intensifier of those two planets’ energies to inspire others to do the same.

On June 10 2013 the date that Edward’s interview with The Guardian was released, transiting Jupiter was at 26 degrees Gemini,and had just crossed Edward’s North Node opposite his Natal Neptune, the Galactic Center.

Edward Snowden has been granted asylum for a year in Russia where he must stay invisible because his life is in danger at every moment from CIA and other secret organizations who wish to see him dead.  Thomas Friedman wrote in the New York Times recently that Snowden could come back to the U.S. and get a fair trial. President Obama stating something similar in a press conference but it is not true. Snowden will never be able to come home and testify that what he did was for the public’s benefit as his charges will always be espionage. So don’t believe what the mainstream media tells you overtly at all. You know the secret game they are playing. 

In light of Edward’s natal chart, I believe Edward’s statement that what motivated him was not being able to support the system he worked for and live with himself knowing that he could personally make a difference by telling the truth, he knew the consequences of what he was doing. 

It takes a very selfless person to do what  Snowden did, who is also brave enough to act on his principles. I totally thank Edward Snowden for being able to be an individual to be strong enough to say NO- the buck stops here.  To really lay his life on the line for real liberty, democracy, freedom of speech. Everything that America Canada and the rest of the “FREE WORLD”  supposedly holds so dear. WAKE UP people. We all need to follow Edward Snowden’s lead in whatever ways we can. He is a great  role model and many young people will emulate him. We all need to have a real sense of ethics, honor, bravery, will and be smart enough to figure out how to get away with it. To me Edward Snowden is a modern Knight in Shining Armour.

He will continue to leak information very selectively and carefully. He does have hackers and other individuals who are helping him.  

Transiting Chiron in his 10th house of reputation is squaring Edward’s Ascendant, I believe he is symbolizing the world’s wounds in Pisces. He is feeling vulnerable of course.  Transiting Neptune in his 10th house is also squaring his Natal Jupiter. Neptune is the illusions and  delusions surrounding the truth he has revealed. Neptune rules film and one is in the works about his life.

On April 15 2013 there will be  a Lunar Eclipse at 25 degrees Libra which falls right on his Natal Pluto Saturn.  As the Moon represents the moods of the people, this indicates a time of further revelations and emotional changes for Edward. 

I send Edward many blessings and protection from the Galactic Center the big wigs that govern the evolutionary flow of this Galaxy.

Ed Sheeran Astrology chart from Tara Greene, Toronto

My daughter Leah, 15 and I love music, pop music and classical music. She listened to classical music only till she was about 5 when she started to learn to play the piano.  But she also listened to the Beatles at that time as I was a huge Beatles fan. She turned me on to 22-year-old British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran’s music for over a year now. She has learned to play very interesting melodious versions of his hit songs on the electric piano.

Ed has come from relative obscurity here in North America with his first hit being the A team, Give Me love and Lego House, with Harry Potter star Rupert Grint playing Ed in the music video. He is currently on tour with Taylor Swift, the American country music cross over singer. He was nominated for a Grammy and sang with Sir Elton John on the broadcast, he is now mainstream in his popularity.

The flaming red-haired, bed head tattooed singer was formerly homeless. He is a high school dropout and has been recording and producing his own songs since he was 14. He seems to be the most down to earth unpretentious person you would want to meet, with a sweet voice, and an amazing range of song styles, he writes very beautiful lyrics and plays in a very simple folk singer style on a 3/4 size beat-up guitar.

He is in TORONTO for two days of concerts on June 14 & 15. 

I am really enthralled with his music. I play it for adults who wouldn’t normally be exposed to it and they all love it too.

I feel Ed is the perfect example of the New Masculine, he is definitely masculine but with a very sensitive, emotional, tender heart-felt empathetic side. His Feminine side is very well-developed so he is balanced.  So let’s check out his Astrology chart.

Ed SHEERAN ASTROLOGY CHART

Click on chart to view larger

ED SHEERAN is an AQUARIAN born February 17, 1991, in Halifax, Great Britain. I have no birth time so use Noon for a public celebrity. 

His Sun at 28 degrees Aquarius shows an unconventional,  strong individual, independent, stubborn, a natural leader, but not an egotistical one, with high-minded ideals, a natural rebel he follows his own style. He is very bright, intellectual, analytical, a vessel of higher consciousness. Likes new technology, building structures, feels like he is part of the world tribe. 

The Moon representing his mother, who he is very close to, was in early ARIES at noon. But it could also have been in late Pisces is he has been born after midnight. The Moon is super important as it is the emotions, the unconscious, the feelings, instincts. I feel that he was born in the night and his Moon is in Pisces. It is the Moon at its most sensitive, intuitive, creative, spiritual, dreamy, and he has songs about drinking and Pisces is the sign of addictions. I’m not saying he is an alcoholic I’m just saying he is very sensitive and predisposed to having addictive types of behaviours, and he loves cats, very feminine felines. 

Mercury is in Aquarius so apply his communications style, thinking and reasoning and to his Aquarian self-expression. 

VENUS is in PISCES at 23 degrees this could also be where most of his creativity as a singer-songwriter comes from and his very Feminine energy. Pisces is the most spiritual sign and rules all creative pursuits. Venus in Pisces people are largely reclusive and usually prefer to be anywhere but on the world’s stage. Spiritual, sensitive, imaginative, the Give Me love video shows a woman transformed into a CUPID angel. He is so emotive, an empath. I have to mention my fave song of Ed’s is SMALL BUMP, where he totally understands the feminine point of view.

Mars is in GEMINI so he is a fast thinker, talker, He raps very quickly. He is diverse in his styles, he is upbeat,  childlike, he loves to talk and communicate. I am sure he can be indecisive. This gives him charm galore, he is a pixie, with an impish grin.

JUPITER is RETROGRADE in LEO at 4 degrees

So this is why Ed is a performer, a strong fiery, passionate leader, this part of him expands on stage and in public, but he is also shy, and UN-egotistical. He has a big heart, which he wears on his sleeve. He loves children, is an actor playing roles. He loves cats- Leo the Lion. He loves to travel and learn through experience. Jupiter is opposite Saturn indicating he is nicely balanced, he works hard and plays hard.

SATURN represents the father, structure, karma. Saturn is at 1 degree Aquarius which it traditionally rules along with Uranus as a modern ruler. This makes Ed a serious rebel. One whose task it is to raise people’s awareness. He will not be labelled. 

URANUS at 12 degrees Capricorn is conjunct NEPTUNE at 15 and this is a generational configuration.

Everyone born in the early 1990s has this aspect. It symbolizes revolutionizing big business, yet being part of it or at least understanding how it works but getting it to serve the collective and more spiritual goals. Ed has CHIRON the wounded healer opposite Neptune which is a transpersonal placement. He is a world server and a healer. Chiron in Cancer symbolizes a wounded child who is insecure, about home, safety, rejected by his parents. 

PLUTO is at 20 degrees SCORPIO

and square to his SUN. Ed’s chart is very simple with not very many difficult aspects. Although this one is. Pluto is the Soul the Unconscious, the shadow, power, control, secrets. He is very much acting from his soul’s urgings. IN SCORPIO this is the MOST EMOTIONALLY INTENSE and SOULFUL as Pluto is the Modern ruler of the 8th sign of sex, power, money, etc. Life is not easy with this aspect especially when unconscious. But he seems to be very strong and aware and this deep soulful aspect permeates his vitality and life force, the Sun.

Ed’s North Node is in Capricorn at 27 degrees, he is ambitious for worldly fame. he is a very hard worker, patient, persistent, focussed, practical, he is goal-oriented. Capricorn North Node’s don’t usually get their fame until they are older and wiser as Saturn the planet rules it and he is all about maturity. But he is an old soul already. 

HIs SOUTH NODE is in CANCER directly opposite, not shown in the chart. this symbolizes past lives, unconscious memories. He must have been a woman in a past life, a mother, a nurturer, very tender, sensitive, compassionate and he has carried this over.  He needs to find fulfillment in his career.

Ed has a lovely GRAND TRINE the blue triangle in his chart between Chiron in Cancer, Pluto in Scorpio and Venus in Pisces. This makes the planet’s energy blend together harmoniously. A sweet sensitive creative yet soulful power of caring.

Ed’s career started to break out with NEPTUNE Crossing his Sun about 2 years ago. 

The North Node just crossed his Pluto within the last 6 months making anyone a favourite at that time.

URANUS AND PLUTO are squaring and conjunct his natal Uranus now with NEPTUNE INVOLVED AS WELL.

Again millions of young people are undergoing this very same aspect. It is a world-changing, revolutionizing aspect. When one becomes famous for their soul talents they embody the direction of all the people in that age group. As the Beatles did in the 60;s or Elvis did in the ’50s. If you are born in this age group and need help figuring it out, I am here to advise you.

Saturn will conjunct his Pluto in 2014 and that will bring major rewards. He will be lauded and taken seriously. success is sometimes difficult to manage. This will be a testing time for him. Can be some temptations there.

So Ed’s greatest world-shifting is happening now and for the next 2 years. Not that it will be over then, he is very talented. 2015 will also be his best year in 12 when Jupiter conjuncts his natal Jupiter then.

I think he is super talented for such a young man.  If you haven’t heard his music check it out. He has a number of albums out.

SMALL BUMP   

End of May, dancing with the stars Astrology,Tara Greene

POST ECLIPSALYPSO

In Toronto where I live, never mind the Mayor Rob Ford cocaine scandal which “blew”- don’t mind the pun, away because I believe they paid off the Somali drug pushers. Its been FREEZING.

Have you seen the beautiful line up of Mercury Venus And Jupiter forming a triangle in the dusk skies?

May 27

Sun is INCONJUNCT SATURN that’s a 150 degree aspect- @ 6 degrees Gemini 6 of Scorpio Rx

Gemini and Scorpio are BAD BEDFELLOW’s

definitely nails on chalkboard’s, very irritable, walk on eggshell’s aspect all during the week.

May 28 features a Fab VENUS JUPITER CONJUNCTION in GEMINI 23 degrees

great for writers, publishers, artists who want to make a statement, blogging, chit chatting, upbeat,

optimistic, inspired, flirty.  Freedom and detachment are part of the Gemini VENUS JUPITER GAME.

make’s one very indecisive, young at heart, dare we say immature? Peter Pan-ish?

Makes you want to hit the road, wild camping, long or short distance trips book them now.

 Gathering with like-minded Women- come to the GRAIL LADY FAIRE  http://www.taratarot.com/id176.html

MAKE BIG LOVE  WISHES- Jupiter is very expansive.

WATCH out for the caffeine. Could also be a lot of HOT AIR-and hype.

YOUR Birthday TODAY? its going to be a fab over the rainbow year for you.

MAY 31 2 planets change signs-

MERCURY Enters CANCER at 12:07 am  PDT

Heads in the clouds come down to earth and seek security safety and comfort of HOME.

Women’s voices will be heard louder around the world. Anti-rape laws will be set into motion. HOMELAND SECURITY will be in the news. Thinking about feelings, your home and environment becomes # 1 on the list. Your stomach will be talking.  Have tea parties and wear fancy hats.Tea Party

Children’s rights, women’s rights, FOOD rights will all be very newsworthy. MONSANTO protests will continue.

MERCURY goes RETROGRADE  JUNE 26 @ 23 degrees+ of Cancer till JULY 20

so mark that down on your calendars.  Good time for home renovations. Re-arrange our furnishings at least. A Mercury in Cancer Retrograde gets us to review  all the intimate conversations we’ve had; it’s a sentimental time. Look at old photos, get that digital photo album together. The good old days of simple living, home cooked meals will be something we really pine for. Great time for a family reunion, old friends and the like. Reflecting near water, the pool, lakes or ocean is ideal.

MARS ENTERS GEMINI @ 3:39 am PDT- till July 13  A BATTLE OF WIT

Leaving the earthy sensual stubborn bull turf for loftier heights. The warrior, likes Gemini territory better and can battle with words and ideas while he transits Airy GEMINI. Lots of partying with Mars in Gemini. Can also cause break ups.

Ladies, this transit makes men way  less dependable, more quixotic, immature, ambivalent, angel/devil minded. So be forewarned. Give the bro’s space to wander, and guess what they’ll come back, Or not, as is Gemini wont. Busy, buzzing like bees, good time to generate new ideas, get PR out. make new friends, have lite conversations.

Energy will be high, speedy, nix the caffeine and sugar. Ambivalence and indecision abound.

Gather new ideas, ask tons of questions, get to know your good and bad sides more. Interview everyone. It’s all about the story, spin your story wisely.   Great for generating fast quips and short, very short novels.

JUNE PREVIEW

SUN inconjunct/ quincunx PLUTO June 1st

This is a heavy intense aspect pitting those clamouring for information against the Plutocracy. Youth and experience, immaturity and seniority are at odds and highlighted.

JUNE 3rd

the WATER TRINES BEGIN

Mercury in Cancer TRINES NEPTUNE And SATURN

Have tea parties and wear fancy hats.

Full Moon in LEO-Give Me Love, song list and Astrology, Tara Greene

The first Full Moon of 2013 is 7 degrees+ Leo  is INTENSE and  serious

YOU know Leo right? Proud, self-centered, loud,  leaders,strong willed, creative, passionate, self-expressive vain. “FEVER”

You’re so vain.” 

Everyone’s got LEO in their natal chart, in a house, a cusp, some planets?

LEO is related to the SUN, Gold, Source of Light and Life and traditionaly , the HEART, STRENGTH  in the TAROT and naturally the 5th house

Where is your heart in your chart?  “Still Searching for a heart of Gold.”

the 5th house is also the house of children, love affairs, GIVING LOVE.  “I am woman hear me roar.”

Ed Sheeran Astrology

SUN is of course opposite in Aquarius and the 11th house of RECEIVING LOVE and the STAR #17 in the TAROT 

MERCURY is close by the Sun in AQUARIUS with MARS, late in the same hi-wire arialist sign of  Aquarius’s heavens.

Square to SATURN in SCORPIO at 11 degrees. Karmic, heavy, ponderous, depressing,

JUPITER is STILL RETROGRADE!!!! so that’s why it feels like Not much is happening.

Aren’t  you at the end of your rope? or Heart Strings is more like it.

JUPITER FINALLY goes DIRECT Jan 30. Be patient just a teennsy weensy bit longer before springing into action.

“The Lion Sleeps Tonight”

URANUS the whoopee cushion planet- with a loud firecracker attached is Trining this Moon

early Sagittarians can expect a hot unexpected explosive love message 

CHIRON is QUINCUNX to the Moon 

so forget your wounded pride, “Pride in the Name of Love”  about MLK by U2

Chiron also squares RETRO JUPITER – listen to 

“Oh God please don’t let me be understood”  by the Animals 

Pluto also Quincunx the MOON –

deep soul desire and ego aren’t jibing together

this is good as it makes more deceit and lies, like Lance Armstrong etc. surface

Pluto in Capricorn in square to Uranus in Aries and the Moon

makes for incendiary times, yes danger from nuclear attacks, bombings,North Korea announcing rocket launch

conflict rising higher and people’s passions stronger re: gun laws, resisting repression Occupy, Idle No More 

 is running through people’s hearts. HEART POWER, “The power of Love”, Power to the PEEPS!

VENUS in late Capricorn is squaring ERIS the new planet of MISCHIEF and DISCORD

but you know that, aren’t you living it?

shout it back to me…. good time to sing, dance, party like it’s 1999,
