Weather permitting, the entire seven-hour transit will be widely visible from eastern Asia, eastern Australia, New Zealand and the western Pacific, as well as Alaska, northern Canada and almost all of Greenland.

VENUS is 1/32nd the size of the Sun she will be visible as a small black dot crossing part of the Sun’s surface during the transit. NEVER look directly at the Sun, special protective glasses must be worn.

Venus averages a conjunction to the sun every 1.6 years. The 8-year pairs cycles {not always in pairs} are spaced on average of 121.5 years apart. The next pairs will occur in 2117 and 2125.

see historic photos of the last Venus eclipse at  http://www.space.com/15893-venus-transit-sun-history.html

I have been thinking about this Venus transits all the time since January.

Numerology wise 2012 = #5 which is VENUS’ number the pentagram, the May 5 super mOON =5/55 
Symbolically VENUS Crossing the Sun was an intuitive flash as it is spoken about in the BOOK OF REVELATIONS by John of PATMOS

as THE WOMAN CLOTHED WITH THE SUN

when I GOT THAT, I’m not a big follower of Revelations or the Christian apocalypse but I definitely GOT THAT MESSAGE!

the Goddess is returning big time. The Sun symbolizes the EGO, daylight consciousness, VENUS is the Goddess, the Feminine, Queen of the NIGHT, ruler of all relationships, beauty.

Venus is RE-asserting her rightful and ruling place. She is RETROGRADE, retracing her steps..

the PATRIARCHY will fall. The Dali Lama says Western Women will change the entire world. THe old-established sun worshipping Judeo-Christian organized religions will fall. The Catholic church ain’t doin very well these days. Their rep. stinks, there is rebellion fomenting in the Vatican itself. The Judeo-Christian religion purposely destroyed the ancient Goddess loving PAgan wiccan nature worshipping religions but it happened world wide. because the Goddess, like the moon, went into her own NEW MOON phase for the last  5,320 years, two world ages ago, when the Sign of Aries took over from the Goddess ruled Age of TAURUS, where the BULL was worshipped as the goddess’ animal.

Women= The earth= life-giving resources = survival=relationships=nurturing=beauty=love=

we’re never gonna survive unless WOMEN”S VALUE”S th true FEMININE power ascends over this patriarchal death worshipping female raping, women hating, earth fucking system which has created the present world-wide macho fear based competitive system mess which can destroy all of us with their nuclear weapons, nuclear power plants FUKUSHIMA, etc. imminently.

so we must all praise Venus, praise the goddess, kiss the ground, worship our mother,THE EARTH our feelings.

Another very modern pop culture symbol of Venus is Katniss Everdeen,the fictional character and protagonist in Suzanne Collin’s The Hunger Games, a hugely popular teen fiction novel, now movie.  Katniss wears a flaming dress, same as the woman clothed in flames or the Sun Katniss is a huntress,a Goddess Diana like figure,  Amazon, an archeress, symbol of Sagittarius.   

The Hunger Games Katniss Everdeen Venus Transit Tara Greene Astrology

As I totally and fervently believe, all the signs & symbols are right here in front of us all the SYNCHRONICITIES in popular culture, inspiring teenage girls and boys to rebel against oppressive fascist Plutocratic governments. My fourteen year old daughter has introduced me to the books.

VENUS needs us to ask for HER forgiveness from our heart of hearts,fort he way we have treated the earth, for the way we defile LOve, for how we have allowed women to be mistreated. She hears all She knows all, She is our heartbeat,She is the heartbeat that each of us remembers  from when we were all in our mother’s wombs.

It may be too late…. but she is showing us the way, lighting our way symbolically,we must have HOPE,

Queen Elizabeth is also celebrating her 60th year as Queen of Great Britain she is also titular head of CANADA

Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Astrology Tara Greene

I have been grateful to live at a time when there was a Queen so that a female ruler was in power. Congrats Queen Elizabeth. She is not perfect by any means.

the Venus transit is at its max on June 6 in Greenwich where it will be totally visible at  01:30:43 GMT

Venus Transit 2012 of the sun

click on image to see larger

For Greenwich the chart shows :VENUS and the Sun at 15 degrees GEMINI again that middle most powerful degree

in sidereal astrology it falls at 20-21 degrees of TAUrus close to fixed Stars Aldebaran, which marks the Archangel Star of Michael,watcher of the East whose flaming sword guards the heavens. It is also close to other fixed stars Cursa, and RIGEL in the Constellation of ORION, 50,000 times more powerful than the sun, at 20 degrees Sidereal TAurus as well as Bellatrix, whose very name means an AMAZON or female warrior,hint hint and Capella.

Revelations mentions the 4 horseman,which are the prime fixed stars in each of the FIXED signs, at mid-degrees of Taurus,Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius. The venus eclipse occurs on one of those Stars, activating that energy.

read more about the eclipse http://taratarotweb.tripod.com/id156.html

The symbol is also of VENUS as the PHOENIX, immolating Herself in the SUN to rise once again reborn from the ashes as we all will, it is the big death and resurrection show. The Sun is in Taurus and the earth is  in Scorpio. 

THE MOON AND RETRO PLUTO are CONJUNCT at 7 and 8 degrees of Capricorn respectively. Showing the FEMININE SOUL transformation in the collective unconscious symbolized now.

URANUS planet of revolution and Athena the warrior Goddess asteroid are both are squaring the MOON PLUTO combo, like Xena the warrior princess in real life. How presqua vu that TV show was.

Xena- Venus transits TAra Greene astrology

 The aptly named LUCY LAWLESS, XENA the warrior princess, VENUS TRANSITS THE SUN

Mercury is conjunct the NOrth Star at 27 degrees of GEMINI and exactly opposite the GALACTIC CENTER.

SCORPIO MOON weekend, sex,power,death,rebirth. Astrology and ritual Tara Greene

MOON enters SCORPIO APRIL 7 –9  EASTER and PASSOVER

Perfect alignment with DEATH, REBIRTH, TRANSFORMATION, RESURRECTION of these days Entry @ 8:18 am PDT/

Scorpio moon Tara Greene astrology rebirth

moon in scorpio easter soul

Scorpio the 8th sign symbolizes the immortal SOUL. Scorpio the 2nd water sign is concerned with all the Biggies, major life issues like sex, power, control, the shadow, death, rebirth, so it is totally a fitting emotional alignment for EASTER.

Easter or EOSTRE {  female ovulation} is an ancient PAGAN fertility festival. The egg and rabbits are fertility itself. These symbols have been added to Christs’ ancient Archetypal tale of death and rebirth.  Ancient religions had the Goddess‘ son or consort, mate with her, and then be ritually tortured and sacrificed in order to resurrect the earth’s new crops, the Goddess’s fertility.

During the Passover ritual one eats bitter herbs, to commemorate how bitter life has been for the Jews who were slaves for 300 years.  There is ritual dipping of   fingers into blessed wine and dropping a drop for each plague that God sent on Pharaoh and the Egyptians. One eats hard-boiled eggs as fertility symbols, eats sweet crushed apples and honey with bitter radish to remember that life is the sweet and the bitter. This is a wise way to remember, by ritually making the memories physical, eating the memories digests them.

Allow yourself to be with the lunar tides, on the birth death resurrection themed super moon. Feel the full Moons’ lingering influence as soulful emotions ooze into the ethers.

Whatever cross you have had to bare, has you nailed to, hung up on…Where have you felt you were the sacrificial victim of YOUR OWN making, first? The someone else involved is only a projection, real but a reflection, like the moon, a  mirror of yourself.

By being real, open, coming from DEEP within your soul, this depth allows understanding, compassion and tears, as the golden tickets you need to learn from. You can then, with consciousness and responsibility,  acceptance and surrender, easily let go of those old rusty nails that you wept on while nailed down. Love those hard boiled eggs.

Where is SCORPIO in your Astrology chart? The house and planets in that sign,are where you can do the most laundry now.

SCORPIO BIRTH AND DEATH RITUAL TRANSFORMATION

Allow death to work for you, surrender and compost that which no longer serves your new emerging self and bring rebirth into a new life.

Nothing new can fully enter your life unless you dump the old sewage, baggage, habits, etc first. Only you can really do that.

As in Passover, gather symbols of things that remind you, it can be food, photographs, music, whatever triggers those feelings around power, powerlessness, control, letting go, sex, money, abuses, shadows, revenge, hatred, obsession, competition, all Scorpio themes.

Allow the old karmic traps, soul cages and wounds to be understood, acknowledged and surrendered at this time. Allow yourself to pass over, to pass them on, to be over it.

Time and consciousness are expanding very quickly now. By simply creating a big pile of all the old memories, like crunched up old newspapers, loving them understanding then turning them into bubbles, allow them to float away on a soft spring breeze. Like magic, Presto! You are healed, you are lighter,  free.

In some ways it can be as simple as that. Scorpio is about control of your feelings, your power. Allow the new to call your name, a name you may not recognize yet.

NOTE: I am currently presenting workshops in soulfully re-naming yourself. To schedule a reading. I will help guide you to your real name, your truth, who you stand for.  taragreene@sacredartscentre.com

Venus in Leo! I am woman hear me roar! July 28 -Aug 21 plus Love,drama. Pres. Obama 50th,the whole Kit ‘n canoodle predictions by Tara Greene

Venus in Leo sure heats things up! Record heat waves, The Goddess is loud, proud, SEXY, in the spotlight, flashing red  puple and Gold, taking center stage.

R U getting enough DRAMA these days?

Excellent time for passionate love affairs!

Fires are sparking everywhere!

Leo is the HEART, Venus in Leo is the Heart Flame! Wearing your heart on your sleeve.

Leo is  Royalty, the King, the Sun, Gold, the Source, the Will, Center stage

Venus in Leo is the Queen, the Feminine Source, Golden Haired Goddess, Marilyn Monroe

It’s super dramatic, did they wait till the last minute to sign some sort of treaty re the DEBT?

It’s Mr. Obama’s 50th Birthday Aug 4, so Happy Birthday Mr. President

 

The President is going through what every 50 year old goes through. It’s called your Chiron Return.

Chiron whose symbol resembles a key, is an outer space object with a 50 year elliptical orbit. Discovered Nov. 1 1977 Chiron was, in Greek Mythology a Centaur, half immortal, rejected by his parents who became a great healer. Long story short, he asked to give up his immortality to quell the pain, he is immortalized as a Constellation in the skies. His discovery brings to our present day consciousness the unconscious psychological symbol of being human, of being archetypal vulnerable and therefor inherently, humanly wounded.

 So where that little key is in your birth chart  shows where you are the most vulnerable, wounded but also where the greatest healing lies, for as each individual heals themselves and the greatest strength lies in being able to open the wounds, show the soft underbelly, own it, take responsibility for it, cherish it, thank it, understand it, bless it, that we may become wounded healers for others. 

And as Kurt Vonnegut would say, and so it goes.

So I send HAPPY BIRTHDAY greetings to President Obama. Lord knows we can all see the vulnerability, the wounds, he is feeling right now trying to fix a wounded U.S.A.  It’s a mighty big job.

So lets take a look at Mr. Obama’s birth chart as he turns 50.

 

President Obama's birth chart

President Obama's birth chart and transits

Were you  born in 1961?

then U 2 will have a Chiron return this year as well.

Mr. Obama’s 50th shows Chiron directly on his natal Chiron at 5 degrees of Pisces in his first house of Self. Who he is. What he identifies as.

Mr. Obama has Chiron opposite Pluto in Virgo in the 7th house of others in his Birth chart, indicating that he is a wounded healer with Big Soul, Big Power,[ Pluto}  a rebirth, around health, work, service to others. Very intelligent, that’s pluto in Virgo, a perfectionist, a very hard worker, someone who always gets te job done. The Chiron return amps up his innate wounding which he felt as a child. Pisces is the most spiritual and sensitive of all the signs, with no boundaries, feeling one with everyone.

I do believe and I tell all my clients that I totally know inherently that we chose our parents, our place and time of birth before we come into this life the characteristics, which allows us the perfect opportunities for our souls to grow,learn and hopefully to complete our journeys of why we came into this life time again, this time around.

Mr. Obama came into this life already spiritual already a wounded healer with a lot of power directed out to the world at large. A Pisces Chiron is compassionate, all-inclusive, can be a martyr.Being of mixed racial background is a perfect symbol for him.

Mr. Obama’s North Node or highest spiritual goal is at 27 degrees 18 minutes of Leo in his 7th house, the house of marriage or all others, his interface with the world, and conjunct to Pluto.  North Node conjunct Pluto is considered to be very powerful, very purposeful.  Becoming President with a capital P. is his fulfilling his highest destiny.

27 degrees of Leo is conjunct to a very famous Fixed Star REGULUS, the heart of the Lion. This famous star is connected to the ArchAngel Raphael the healer of the heart.  His South Node representing the Past, is at 27 degrees of Aquarius in his first house.

Neptune the planet of dreamers. chameleons, actors, addictions, illusions, delusions, Hollywood, OIL. HAs been passing over Mr. Obama’s South Node and will do so again soon. He may seem tobe shifting his position, or being too idealistic. 

Venus is now in Leo and Venus will make a Superior Conjunction to the Sun on Aug 16th at 23 degrees of Leo. 

Every year the Sun is at the 23 degree on this date and co-incidentally it is the Anniversary dates of two very important festivals, gatherings, shifts in world consciousness.

 

woodstock

Aug 15 017 1969 Woodstock

 

 WOODSTOCK took place  on Aug 15 16 and 15 in where else?  

hundreds of thousands of young people arrived bare foot, long-haired, to tune in turn on drop out, create their own city, babies were born, musicians played as they never had before, Joni Mitchell summed it up in her famous song,

WE ARE STARDUST, WE ARE GOLDEN, AND WE’VE GOT TO GET OURSELVES BACK TO THE GARDEN

I just came across this TWEET synchronistically by Deepak Chopra like an hr ago!  We are golden.

Also on Aug 16 and 17 1987 the HARMONIC CONVERGENCE

Jose Arguelles, who recently passed on, one of the co-founders of Earth day, declared these days a world-wide meditation and higher consciousness gathering and brought the Mayan calendar “end date” of Dec 21, 2012 into mass consciousness.

For these 2 days Light workers gathered at various high energy vortex power spots around the world, Mt. Shasta. Niagara Falls, Sedona Arizona etc. 

I happened  to be drawn to living in Sedona a year before there and arrived there at Spring Equinox in 1987 to find out unbeknownst to me consciously and after the fact that 10,000 people were scheduled to arrive on  these dates in a town of 7,500 people. They did. I was there on Bell Rock and the Airport Vortex doing movement meditations. It was on National News.

My point is folks, that Venus the Goddess of women, beauty, love, harmony, balance the Arts is going to Kanoodle with the Sun on this very same date bringing the point that as in the Harry Potter Deathly Hallow’s part 1 – the Golden snitch says “I OPEN AT THE CLOSE.” cryptic words those.

So we are back to where we began this little story, Venus, the Sun , Leo, The President, Golden Girls- Marilyn Monroe, Happy 50th, anniversaries.  

The Ancients called the convergence of Venus with the Sun “CAZIMI” meaning under the Sun’s beams, burnt out, disappeared, and evil.

As a symbol of what these dates have symbolized to the collective consciousness and to have this important rendezvous now means:

Now we don’t live in fear, but in insight from our hearts, the place that LEO rules. So throw open the gates of your heart, 

Love  loud and proud, not vaingloriously but un- egotistically.  Venus disappearing, being swallowed up by the Sun,

means she is entering a Golden Palace, a Heaven world, and we as the microcosmic mirror of the Marcocosm. “AS ABOVE< SO BELOW>”

as She is dying to Herself to rise like the Phoenix from the ashes of her own immolation,

out of compete unselfish Love for the Sun, the Source of all Light and Life, to have her ego/self extinguished.

 Venus will then no longer be visible as the morning star [ DAWN STAR} where she has risen so beautifully at night in the East,

she will go to the Underworld, the night Sea journey, to the dark side of the SUN, to be reborn many months from now.

And we must go with Her whether consciously or Unconsciously.

The Lust and speculation over Gold as security in a changing worldscape is a projection of our need for what Gold holds and trasmits, what it symbolizes.  the Light of the Sun, our very Selves, our Golden Self, our Spirits, our Souls,. shining Lights, Stars. 

.The symbol # 17 in the Tarot, The Star symbol of Aquarius and you remember that song, from another famous ‘60’s musical icon don’t you?

This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius, the Age of Aquarius.  

We are Stardust, We are Golden, and we’ve got to get ourselves back to the Garden. Thank You Joni Mitchell for so eloquently tuning into the cosmic vibe of Eternity.

Back to Obama

And as for Mr. Obama the Venus Sun conjunction occurs in his 7th house, on his Uranus, planet of REVOLUTION in-between that planet and LILLITH, at 20 degrees of Leo very near to his Descendant.

LILLITH the archetypal first woman proceeding EVE. Didya read that story in the Bible? Not just a women’s songfest. LILLITH was the first woman, She was the original “I am woman hear me roar. ” She refused to allow Adam to dominate her sexually, like an animal. Pointing out rightly so, that G*d had created Her and Him EQUAL, of the earth, so what the heck was he thinking?

He wasn’t obviously, he was Unconscious. So Lillith took off and flew the coop and she left Eden. Yep that’s right, she flew right outa there and went to reside by the Red Sea. Ok. Long story short. She refuses to compromise in any way and is demonized by the Patriarchs who were trying to re-write HIStory from He point of view, when everyone knows deep down in their cellular memories that it was and is and always shall be SHEstory.

That is a Matriarchal comprehension of the Universe, self-evident, common sensicle. So Adam is in the Garden and asks God to make him a mate. So G* d creates Eve to be the perfect Lord it over the women prototype and women are blamed, defamed, and eternally damned in this historical rewrite.

 

So what does that mean? Well I believe the Women will revolt and take back their power!!!!!!!!!!!! I am woman hear me roar!!! Venus in Leo, conjunct the Sun. Which is ungoldenly the Ego, vanity, greed, fear and in the Light, and spiritually the divine essence, the spirit itself, rising again as Divine Love.

So guys ya better start workin on getting nice to your own inner female side, yah you. You got one too. Everyone does. Ya’all never be alone ya know.

Grail LAdy FAire 2011

Tara Greene presenter at Grail Lady Faire 2011

she just had this on her FB page. It is a poem by David Whyte, the Washington based bard who began his writing lessons with It doesn’t interest me… which inspired my former teacher Oriah Mountain Dreamer to write  a poem which was originally a newsletter which eventually became The Invitation,

 

EVERYTHING IS WAITING FOR YOU

 

 

 

(After Derek Mahon) 

 

Your great mistake is to act the drama
as if you were alone. As if life
were a progressive and cunning crime
with no witness to the tiny hidden
transgressions. To feel abandoned is to deny
the intimacy of your surroundings. Surely,
even you, at times, have felt the grand array;
the swelling presence, and the chorus, crowding
out your solo voice. You must note
the way the soap dish enables you,
or the window latch grants you freedom.
Alertness is the hidden discipline of familiarity.
The stairs are your mentor of things
to come, the doors have always been there
to frighten you and invite you,
and the tiny speaker in the phone
is your dream-ladder to divinity.

 

 Put down the weight of your aloneness and ease into
the conversation. The kettle is singing
even as it pours you a drink, the cooking pots
have left their arrogant aloofness and
seen the good in you at last. All the birds
and creatures of the world are unutterably
themselves. Everything is waiting for you.

St. Patrick’s Day,the Luck ‘O the Irish,the pagans by Tara Greene Astrology

by Tara Greene Astrology Psychic  & More Copyright 2011- eternity & beyond.

St. Patrick, Catholic Irish Saint,is known for driving the snakes out of Ireland. That story  is actually a cultural re-visioning. St. Patrick, identified with the shamrock, was no Saint and not lucky at all for the pagans who worshipped the Goddess. Ireland since time out of mind was a pagan, Wiccan, Druid, Nature, Goddess worshipping land. These people were demonized and ripped off by St. Paddy. 

St. Paddy is NOT Irish. Born in Scotland  to Roman parents around 387 AD.  Taken prisoner at 14, he was sent to Ireland as a slave. He studied the language and learned the customs of the people, original Nature loving, pantheistic earth worshippers. 

As the story goes, Patrick prayed to God. He had a dream he was to leave Ireland but the Irish people were calling him back. He studied to be a priest. He became a Bishop and was sent back to Ireland to teach the Gospel. He arrived at Slane on March 25, 433. Patrick converted many thousands of people including Irish Kings who were moved {or threatened} upon hearing Patrick’s message. He himself had many disciples who were all later canonized. He preached for over 40 years, apparently worked many miracles, and wrote of his love for God in his confessions. He lived in poverty, travelled and endured much suffering and died March 17, 461 AD. at Saul, where he had built his first church. It’s 1,550 years since he died. 

THE SHAMROCK

Patrick used the shamrock, as the symbol of the holy Trinity. The SHAMrock or clover {note the sham pun in shamrock, puns are always give a ways} is originally an ancient PAGAN SYMBOL of the GODDESS, the original Holy TRINITY, the TRIPLE GODDESS, whose phases we see as the Moon waxing and waning.  

The Triple Goddess, like the Roman God Janus, who was also an overlay of the original Goddess worshipping religions, represents the past present and future. Christianity like Hinduism, Judaism, Islam always incorporated former religions but then skews the original meaning, usually inferring the opposite.

Sheilaugh Na Gig Irish Pagan symbol in Church

Catholic pagan symbol Sheila Na Gig

St. Patrick was famous for driving the snakes out of Ireland, meaning he drove the pagans out/converted them. The snake is a euphemism; the snakes symbolize the Goddess, rebirth, sexuality, eternity, and wisdom. Snakes were always her honoured symbol. In the re-writing of the Goddess history, the propaganda popularly known as the Bible, tells how in Genesis, the snake was turned into evil and Eve made to be seen as wicked, the original sinner, forever dooming women to hardship in birth, and never able to repent.

 

Cretan Snake goddess

Cretan Snake goddess worhsipped for thousands of years

It is the worst most wicked, horrible, most ridiculous LIE,  filled with self-hatred, hatred of life, divorced from nature. It  was of course built on the foundations of Judaism and the old testament which was the historical very violent story of the crushing of the Goddess religion, the defamation of the Feminine.

Everything the Goddess stood for, love of Nature, the Feminine relating principles, honouring life, children, sexuality etc. was made bad, indecent, devil worship by the Catholic Church and the Bible.

Christians thank him the conversion of the ancient Irish pagans. But in the name of Christ who tolerated all peoples, honoured women and preached love of thy neighbour, pagans especially women,who were labelled witches and -worshippers,were tortured to convert, and had their properties and rank stolen from them.

 To some Pagans, wiccans, druids, Goddess worshippers St. Patrick is a despised person who drove the Irish people from their original faith.  Some Wiccans may actually enjoy the celebration because of its “hidden” Pagan meaning, and smile when they see devout Christians wearing the shamrock, the Goddess’symbol proudly.

As in the Mists of Avalon, the re-telling of the Arthurian and Grail legends from the original Pagan Goddess worshipping aspect, the Goddess in any name is still Her energy. Goddess worship is earth honouring, egalitarian, matriarchal. 

Just as the white people carry a collective karmic debt and shame for destroying Indigenous peoples earth worshipping religion and cultures. In Canada,there is now a token giving back, as in the Queen Charlotte Island being renamed in their indigenous tongue and land treaties give native people back the lands and bones or historical relics taken in colonialized plunder, as in Egypt and China that were stolen from them. 

Perhaps we should rethink St. Patrick when we’re out in the pub drinking green beer, wearing shamrocks, and singing When Irish Eyes Are Smilin’ and Oh Danny Boy and at least toast THE GODDESS. Because as She says: “All acts of love and beauty are my worship.” 

And speaking of Ireland. The name Tara, popularly connected to the Hills of Tara, and the Kings of Tara is originally a Goddess name. Tara, whose ancient worship continues today,She is still worshipped daily in India and Tibet.  Green Tara whose name is originally SITARA, means the Stars. Therefore she is just like the Egyptian Goddess of the sky, where all life originated, the goddess Nut, or Nuit, aka the Milky Way Galaxy. Hey we don’t call it a Guyaxy. 

Sitara, her name means the Galaxy, all that is, She is the original creatress, Mother Nature. The Sitar is her heavenly music, the music of the cosmos. Her worship is so ancient and widespread it ran from India all the way to Ireland.

In English Tara =Terra in Latin meaning The EARTH. Eartha or Artha in Sanskrit means the Earth. All the names have an etymological root from Sanskrit considered to be a holy language. So in India and Tibet the mantra, the prayers for Tara invoke her vibration, as chanting OHM is considered to be the original word of God. Tara actually has 21 different manifestations, colours and dances representing her powers.  Green Tara is Mother Nature. 

Chanting her mantra or saying these words brings protection.

Om Tara Tu Tara Tura Swoha. The Tura is pronounced Tooray.

For Japan and all the desecration of Her Planet please chant these words to divine Goddess tara.

Blessings

Valentine’s Day Gaga-dance, sing,LUV Tara Greene Astrology of Feb 14

So whats the cosmic weather really like for V day 2011?

the heavens above on Valentine's Day 2011

Heaven on valentine's day 2011

The MOON governs the overall reigning feelings emotions memories and instincts of any day.

This V day in additon to all the romantic hype will be replete with high emotions moods and very sentimental with the Moon in Cancer. Be sure to go to a homey comfort food place for dinner or cook yourself at home. Cancer Moon likes traditional, and the way to a Cancer moon’s valentine’s heart is through the stomach. Apple pie of course just like Mom made it.

Cancer mOon opposite Pluto in Capricorn at 6 degrees, wow this changes it up. Pluto demoted or no is POWER, SEX, SECRETS, kinky,atomic, underworldly,totally nihilistic indulgences,the death and resurrection show! so Mom vs. all the things she forbade you to do in tantalizing opposition. First we’ll play house nice and then we’ll mess it up under the rug…  whatever your fancy desires! 

VENUS planet ruling LOVE, ROMANCE, women is at 12 degrees of capricorn also still opposite the MOON and conjunct Pluto. so sexy intense, passionate, jealous, steamy, lots of Victoria’s secret lingerie, dark raw chocolate till spread all over, oodles of roses till they almost sell out  the entire planet. Venus in Capricorn though is all business, so buy your favourite femme fatale something practical, tweedy even, for work, she can double deal in the daily grind,not just the bump and.

Venus Squares Jupiter in Aries so things will move along very quickl, dive right in, dont be shy.

Pluto forms a tense T-square with  Retrograde Saturn in Libra and that Cancerian quickly moving Moon. Tense, intense, take her out to a Moroccan  Egyptian or Middle eastern restaraunt. a bit of humour..again crying and or at least reminiscing over past lovers may come up during the evening inspite of your best efforts.

MARS? what about the planet ruling the male gender and  libidos in general? Mars is cozied up to and sandwiched conjunct the Sun in Aquarius along with Mercury at 17 degrees and Neptune at 28 degrees of Aquarius, still wide but connected to Chiron the wounded healer at Zero degrees of Pisces.

Mars in breezy Aquarius is easy going humanitarian, love the one your with, he’ll buy you a save the polar bears, whales, indiginous peoples, raw milk or planetary  something for Valentine’s day. That’s a good thing too!  A bit detached, quick moving, freedom loving, inventive- new positions? tech-y gifts? how romantic you say. He’ll let you think it was your idea.

Mars conjunct Neptune-divinely romantic, full of poetry, art, fine wine, soul mates sparkly eyeballing are the vibes. Be carefull not to drink to excess with Mars and Neptune connected it could be too easy. Judgement will be cloudy, remember that he/she may seem like your soul survivor today and the total opposite tomorrow but hey.. youve got nothing else to loose. Chiron here indicates fragile hearts beneath that cool Aquarian, texty, smooch, hipster of the mo exterior, so dont be surprised when the mask falls with the underwear..

And remember by Wedenesday the Moon will swagger into Leo and the entire emotional picture will have changed.

Live everyday as if it were Valentine’s day…
