Sagittarius Full Moon, wild,wild meditation

Call of the Wild Meditation, Sagittarius Full Moon, June 2

This article appeared in Cosmic Intelligence Agency, by Agent 129 

Sagittarius, the 9th sign is known for far distant travels, for truth, justice, freedom, higher education, philosophy, humor, optimism, risk-taking, trust, adventure, faith and mysticism. Sagittarius is the last of the fire signs and represents a matured energy of Aries and Leo.

The root of the word Sagittarius is related to the word sage. A sage is a venerable, older, wise teacher who inspires and passes on valuable information. That is what the Sagittarius mission is. To inspire awe, wonder and to point its arrows of truth higher towards the Galactic Center. This center of our Milky Way Galaxy is a huge black hole and the place which the Mayans say is the origin and ending for all souls, the cosmic vagina, a wormhole or gateway to the beyond.

Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter,King of the Gods, Jupiter in Leo greatly amplifies and expands the positive optimistic joyousness of this Full Moon. Sagittarius seeks its tribe, we need to gather with like-minded people at this time.

Sagittarius’s symbol, the Centaur, depicts that this sign combines the two sides of our brains. We are both self-aware in our human conscious and also driven by our wild, untamed, unconscious natural animal instincts.  Sagittarius is connected to the Greek Goddess Diana, the wild virgin huntress, Goddess of the Moon.  The wolf is also the animal associated with Sagittarius as they are teachers.

In our modern, tech driven, urban world we tend to live full time in the so-called “higher consciousness” information saturated world. We have largely lost touch with our ancestral intuitive “animal brain” which was viewed as our “lower nature” in some spiritual traditions. Modern life is moving so much, with information overload that we are in danger of burning out from an excess of mental processing which leads to an anorexia of natural experiences. We need to reinvigorate our wild side and learn to trust our instincts. The illogical, magically inspired side of ourselves needs to howl under the Full Moon light.

The Tarot Trump for SAGITTARIUS is #14 Temperance /ALCHEMY or ART

Tarot art Temperance  Tara Greene

Thoth Tarot Trump #14 Sagittarius

This is the card of balancing and Transformation. It is related to the Philosopher’s stone which symbolizes turning lead {Saturn, matter} into Gold {the Sun or spiritual Light}.

The TEMPERANCE ANGEL symbolizing our Higher Selves is combining the masculine watery fire { mind} and the fiery water {instincts} to transform both into something entirely new. In this way we combine our shadow selves and become more than we were. This card is also known as the SACRED MARRIAGE card.

On the Tree of Life, Temperance, called Samekh is on the Central path from the Moon to the Sun from the Personality to the Higher self. This path is where we rise to have direct knowledge and conversation with our Holy Guardian Angel which allows us to be reborn. This is the Great Work. It also symbolizes the “dark night of the soul” part of the hero/heroine’s journey where one goes through a period of depression, abandonment and feels lost and desolate and must have faith and believe that there is Light at the end of the tunnel of rebirth.

This Full Moon allows us the Alchemically change, transform and renew our animal instincts and howl our wisdom.  

Two Archangel STARS are involved in this Full Moon.

This Full Moon is conjunct to Fixed Star Antares {rival of Mars} at 9 degrees Sagittarius which also marks the Fixed Star Archangel Uriel.

The Sun is conjunct Aldebaran also known as the Archangel Michael at 9 degrees Gemini and the Moon is opposite. Michael is the great protector and defender with his flaming sword.

These degrees reminded me of Venus crossing in front of the Sun on June 2012 which was at 15+ degrees Gemini. This Full Moon may be used to illuminate how far we have come since then in our relationships, values, communications and equality for women.

There is a wide Grand Fire Trine of Jupiter in Leo, Uranus and the South Node in Aries to the Moon symbolizing change, freedom and letting go of the past.

Full Moons mark culminations or fulfillments. They can also mark future points where we can prepare now when planets will also contact these degrees. Think about these future activations and where you want to be then. Jupiter as the ruler of Sagittarius will bring down your aspirations to a concrete practical Virgo level in October. 

Sagittarius Full Moon is @ 4:18 pm GMT @ 11 degrees + Sagittarius.

Jupiter will square this degree from Virgo on October 5, 2015.

Saturn will conjunct the degree exactly January 7, 2016

Neptune will square it from Pisces, May 16, 2016 for the first time.

SMUDGE WITH SAGE 

sage

Begin by smudging yourself first. Light your candles. One for each direction. I always work EAST to SOUTH to WEST TO NORTH. Always move clockwise. Call in the four elements and the four direction into your sacred circle.
Call in the four Archangels, Michael, Gabriel, Ariel, Raphael in the same order.

Center yourself by breathing, sit in a lotus position if you can. You can do this ritual outdoors. It would be good to be barefoot and sitting on the earth. Light your candles and incense and close your eyes.

Give thanks for what you have learned since the last full Moon in Scorpio where we shed the old skins May 3-4.

Set your intentions on expanding your ability to connect with your Holy Guardian Angel and the Higher Master Teachers which Jupiter governs. Invoke them.

Breathe in through your nose naturally, and breathe and send your intention to your root chakra, breathe and spark the flame of your passion in your root chakra. Connect your breath down by growing a tail with each breath that roots down from the base of your spine, down, down into the earth’s molten lava iron core.

When you feel the connection to the earth’s fire, breathe it up through the rocks and crystals back up into your root chakra and breathe it up in sequence from the lowest 1st root chakra up to the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th chakras. You can also send your energy breath and intention out and beyond your crown chakra to the 8th and 9th chakras. The 8th is your Higher self, it is Gold about 1 foot above your head. The Peruvian shamans send energy to a 9th chakra which symbolizes the Galactic Center and beyond, the wiracocha. Direct your energy out there, and call upon your Holy Guardian Angel and Michael and Uriel and the Master Teachers to come and connect with you.

Now direct your attention within. See your inner feminine and inner masculine sides. Sense their individual energies. Watch them yearn for and meld and blend into each other, transforming totally into each other.  Watch the masculine become feminine and the feminine become masculine. Sense and feel this new essence, this unified golden being that has been transformed into a whole and complete new you.  Feel yourself radiate the Gold. Sound AUM or OHM.

For those of you who are single and still longing to find your soulmate, doing this exercise is mandatory to magnetically attract your “other half” to you. When you are whole and complete and can empathize with the other, than your other appears but you don’t need them. You can have a relationship based on mutual respect and strength.

See in your mind’s eye an open book. In this book write in gold ink your intentions to live from your highest spiritual consciousness and your strongest instincts. Write about your aspirations, write about what you want to learn, and how you can teach and inspire others.

Listen and watch your Holy Guardian Angel talk to you. Make a vow with your guardian Angel. The angel has been waiting for you to connect to them. They have always been watching over you.  Take a very deep breath and let out a big sigh. Allow, joy, ecstasy, laughter, happiness to erupt inside of you. It may feel like a total body orgasm. This is your natural state.

Take as much time as you need. When you feel complete. Give thanks. Know that your Guardian Angel will always and protect you.

Come out of your meditation and dance. Celebrate, howl, do something generous for a stranger, Keep the energy and optimism going.

Scorpio Dark Matter Full Moon Strip

A shorter version of this article was published on the Cosmic Intelligence agency site, I am Agent 129

Cosmic Intelligence Agency

Tara Greene Agent 129

 Seems like many moons  ago since last Full Moon which was the Total Lunar Libra Eclipse Blood Moon on April 4th doesn’t it? 

The Moon pulls the tides and our emotions and deepest unconscious primal feelings. All full moons intensify this. A SCORPIO FULL MOON = INTENSE Dark Full Moon.

This Annual Scorpio Full Moon is at 13+ degrees , @ 8:42 pm PDT/ 11:42 pm EDT/ May 4, 3:42 am GMT

Scorpio Full Moons activate  instinctive, sexual and hormonal, energies. Scorpio, the 8th sign governs the sex organs, power, obsession,  control, money, death, rebirth, recycling, depth psychology, secrets, mysteries, resources, gifts from the dead, metaphysics and tantric union.

Scorpio is ruled by Mars ,where it is debilitated by being in Taurus’s sign now. Scorpio is co-ruled by Pluto in Capricorn, newly Retrograde @ 15+ degrees Cardinal earth sign where it is more powerful.

The Moon at 13 degrees Scorpio is caught between the Fixed Stars Acrux and the Southern Scales. Caught between the Cross of Matter and the Scales of Justice seems like a totally apt description of where we are at right now. 

Jupiter in LEO is tightly squaring the Sun and Moon with Juno, Goddess of Feminine genius at his side. Imagine a big Hollywood Producer with  a beautiful babe who is super intelligent like Hedy Lammar the German born  star who with musical composer George Antheil, invented a device during World War II that became the basis for Wi-Fi, GPS and certain cordless and wireless phones. Power beauty and brains is the axis of this Full Moon. Remember that.

Venus is at 25+ degrees Gemini, symbolizing our values about the duality of our natures, is in close opposition to the Galactic Center and conjunct to the NORTH STAR, POLARIS- the highest directions.

Chiron at 20 degrees Pisces is square to Venus in Gemini and they are symbolizing and reflecting the current plethora of dialogue about Bruce Jenner’s sex change  and the wounds of those who have had to submerge, hide and been outcast for being sexually different.  All of that energy is also being magnified at this Full Moon. 

SCORPIO is all about the bass, depths, rebirth and transformation.

SCORPIO rules the darkest black hole, the grave, fear, intense emotions, orgasm, the darkest secret caves, the shadows of the psyche.

Scorpio is also symbolized by the great anaconda snake spirit guardian who eats the participant in an ayahuasca sacred plant medicine ceremony.  Scorpio is an all-consuming, all-powerful, snake shedding soul initiation. 

This Full Moon also celebrates one of the most important festivals in the Buddhist calendar, Wesak, celebrating the Buddha’s birth, enlightenment and death.  We want to assimilate the transformation of the Buddha’s life as our own. Meditating on death, rot and decay is real and a metaphor of our own vulnerability and the fragility of life, and on the rot and decay on the world at large. This is a major part of Buddhist practice. Scorpio recycles refuse, garbage and decay into new energy.

Scorpio is also like the Great Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhist  Vajrayogini, who, like Kali, wears a necklace of skulls and carries a shell of blood, and a knife,she is depicted as a naked 16 years old girl blazing sexual energy and obsessed with becoming enlightened. Vajrayogini clears all past karma, all Scorpio-like obsessions with suicide, depression, pain, self-loathing, darkness. You can call upon her to help you.

SCORPIO is associated with the Tarot Trump of DEATH #13 in the TAROT 

Scorpio Full Moon Tarot Astrology Tara Greene

In the Minor Cards the 6 of cups is the minor card associated with 13+ degrees of Scorpio.

In the COURT CARDS The Knight of Cups covers the 14th degree of Scorpio.

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

Colors: green-blue and red for Mars.

The MOON’s color is silver. Use silver candle stick holder or put dimes or quarters on the alter and wear silver jewelry.

Scorpio rules the sex organs, bladder and urinary tract,kidneys, pelvis, perineum, prostrate, uterus, sperm. 

Sound ; G SHARP 

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

SET UP YOUR SCORPIO FULL MOON MEDITATION RITUAL

If you are afraid of snakes and many people are, you will have to work through this exact fear now. Trust in this process, it may work miracles for you in so many ways. This can be very healing for women with menstrual issues. 

Minerals for SCORPIO and Mars

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

Set up an alter or sacred meditation space.
I would recommend water in bowls.

Incense:

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

Put on quiet Tibetan Buddhist monks chanting meditation music.

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

Begin by smudging yourself first.

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

You can choose to work on a specific area that you wish to transform in your life, letting it go and shedding it like a skin in order to grow. 

Meditate and begin to breathe, and sense your pelvic area and sexual organs. Breathe into them, into your  root chakra whose colors is RED.  Keep breathing naturally until you begin to feel the chakra heating up, to tingle and pulsate. If you don’t sense this it’s OK just keep breathing and using your intention. This is your own kundalini snake/sexual energy you are feeling.

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

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

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

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

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

Record whatever thoughts and feelings on your phone or on paper. 

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

Blessings,

TARA

Rainbow Bridges, Earth Day Trines

Rainbow bridge astrology Tara Greene

VERY RARE double and quadruple rainbows appeared April 21 in Long Island, New York

Rainbows have always symbolized rainbow bridges from Heaven as answers to prayers.

 “As above so below”  they are a sacred bridge between the earth and the heavens.

The seven colors of the Rainbows are the same as the chakra’s in our bodies.

If you have been praying for a sign. This is it.

If one person  photographs this, they are one cell in the body of all of our awareness and consciousness. We are one Galactic Human. 

If you are reading this then your prayers have already been answered. No matter what it looks like. No matter how many obstacles seem to be in the way. We have all received this sign collectively via the web which is a machine created to imitate the real interconnectivity of each one of us with every cell and atom in the universe.

It’s EARTH DAY April 22 

Earth Day astrology Tara Greene

Meditate today about your body being made up of all the elements of the earth. 

MERCURY and MARS in TAURUS TRINE PLUTO and LILITH in VIRGO on EARTH day. 

Earth Day, Mothers Day, Tara Greene astrology

I had a Freudian slip and I wrote Tartarus which is actually another place like Hades only even further down. It is the Christian form of Hell where the wicked are punished. 

The Mars Pluto Earth trine connects to Mercury today and LILITH in VIRGO. 

The wounded healer Chiron is opposite to Lilith- showing us where it hurts, in our hearts and our souls and on the earth. We will feel where the earth is aching in our own bodies. My lower back has been hurting the last few days.

Chiron is sextiling Mercury Mars and Pluto. VENUS in GEMINI is squaring Lilith, sextiling Jupiter in Leo and creating a YOD or a Finger of God/dess to PLUTO.  Pluto and Chiron are forming a Finger of Yod back to Jupiter in Leo. YOd’s focus the energy to transformation, death and rebirth.

Saturn in Sagittarius is squaring Neptune in PISCES are dream of a just, honest, natural earthly paradise. 

The Moon is on the NOrth STAR at 27 degrees GEMINI opposite the Galactic Center  at 7:02 pm EDT when Mercury conjuncts Mars. We  can connect with the center of the Galaxy for cosmic infinite wisdom.

The Moon moves into Cancer at 9:25 pm PDT, to make us  aware of our hearts, of the waters of the earth and how we need to protect the waters. We are all birthed from the waters of women’s wombs and the earth needs our protection too.

Everything is connected. 

This is such a powerful earthy trine for this day, now 45 years old April 22 2015.

The awareness of having to honor the earth has gathered but the raping and pillaging of the earths resources has gone unabated, driven by corporate greed. Scientists say that 75% of known fossil fuels must stay in the ground.

The grand trines really makes us aware of our earthly plight and takes us into the bowels of the earth where we can listen to Her Voice. 

Lilith is powerful now. The Lilith in Virgo energy can really clean up any mess. She is just like the earth herself, the same way we rape make invisible and use women is exactly the same way we rape and use the earth. Pluto is the Masculine version of Lilith. She is older than Pluto. Lilith was the original woman. So we need to listen to her deeply, receptive, openly and fearlessly now if we want to get back to the garden. 

We need to anchor this massive transformative energy Pluto is the s-o-w–e-s-t moving planet right now. He rules the lower consciousness of the earth, the shadows as well as the power to transforming them. He is in “right relationship” with Lilith and the mind of Mercury and the actions of Mars and in Capricorn Pluto will move and destroy mountains.. 

On Earth day, and for  longer, some people honor earth week. Really get into your body, do yoga, make sure you walk in nature. Breathe through the soles of your feet.

CEREMONY and ritual and Meditation to honor the earth

You will need corn meal, yellow,white or blue will do. If you can be Out in nature on the earth it is better and if not then at  your sacred alter or space in your home, do this ritual or create your own.

Begin in the East where the Sun rises, call in the powers of the SUN and  offer corn meal to Grandfather Sun and to GrandMother Earth. Tell Grandfather Sun thanks, state why and what you are grateful for. Ask to live from SPIRIT, from the Light, from source, from the stars, and shed light, and consciousness wherever you are. 

ASK: close your eyes, breathe: What part of Light may I shine here to create unity with the earth and the Spirit and the Feminine? How can I live from the sacred FIRE?  stay with this…

Turn clockwise and call in the powers of the South,WATER, and offer cornmeal to the oceans, rivers, lakes and streams. Say prayers to the waters and visualize pure clean radiant energy from your heart to all the waters of the earth until you sense them purified. Send energy especially to Fukushima and other polluted places.  Send prayers to the fish, whales and dolphins, sea lions, narwhals, manatees and other creatures. 

ASK:close your eye, breathe and ask: What can I do to honor my heart,  my feelings and intuition? How can I protect the prescious waters? How can I conserve more? How can we ensure there is clean water for all?

Turn and face West, this is the direction of the EARTH. Offer cornmeal to the Earth Mother Herself. Send prayers to the parts of the earth which man is destroying daily, forrests,through strip mining, toxic chemical dumps, the Alberta Tar sands, in China, New Guinea, Brazil, in the Arctic and Antarctic.  Send your love and deep gratitude for being alive on our beautiful mother which we all have in common.  Send prayers of healing to all living beings, all humans and all creatures alive and all the rocks and crystals.

ASK: close your eyes, breathe and ask: What can I do by honoring my body as a temple and the earth also as Holy Ground, a sacred place? I ask for guidance to love nurture and care for the earth and all the creatures. How can I live and live in harmony on the earth. 

Move to the NORTH, the direction of AIR. Offer cornmeal to the air and sky spirits. Throw it up into the air.  Send prayers to the clean skies, to the tress, winds, birds, clouds, rainbows, storms, thunder and lightning spirits. Send prayers to the hurricanes and tornadoes. Send gratitude for the beautiful sky in the day, the sunsets and dawns, to the gorgeous sky and all the stars at night. 

ASK: close your eyes, breathe: What can i do to breathe more deeply and slowly? How can the air I breathe help raise my consciousness about pollution, deforestation and air quality?  How can I learn to listen to the weather and  the atmosphere and the stars? What can I do to help keep the air clean and pure for the next 7 generations?

Listen for the synchronicity and the answers.

Happy Quan yin day, blessings of compassion

Prelude. The post- Total Lunar eclipse energy had me feeling  down, with so much dark energy coming up. Yet I was also feeling my angel and spirit guides presence too. I felt like I was living with both feelings at the same time in parallel universes. A friend of mine,who does very high level spiritual work called me yesterday saying she was feeling overwhelmed and down and crying. I said I was feeling it too. I told her that it is very Libran to feel that polarity, the whole point is to feel it all and to hold the tension of the opposites. That is what Carl Jung said the great work is.  We need to make both feelings transparent not try to pretend it is all light.

The Moon is also in Scorpio which also brings up deep deep emotions. So it feels totally synchronous that…

 April 7 Billions of people are celebrating the birthday of  the Goddess of Mercy and Compassion Quan Yin/ Kwan Yin today. She is the Divine Mother Goddess and the most worshipped Goddess in the world who we need to call upon to end suffering . She is a Goddess of Love and Light. 

Quan Yin Buddhism Tara Greene

All Buddhists,  love and pray to Quan Yin. Chinese Taoists consider her an Immortal. Her name means “observing the Sounds of the world.” She is worshipped through Eastern Asia under different names. 

She is known as a Bodhisattva.  This is a Buddha, an enlightened being who has given up their own liberation from the wheel of karma and who volunteers to come back into the world to help alleviate the suffering of all sentient beings until everyone is liberated. It’s a very serious vow to make.  As White Tara in Tibetan Buddhism, she was the first Buddha to take a Female form. 

She is also shown as a male aspect inTibet.”Avalokiteshvara” which means “the lord who looks upon the world with compassion”.

In China she is shown as a beautiful woman in white, often shown riding a dragon, or a dolphin.  She holds a willow branch, which was used to heal people’s illness and to bring fulfillment of their wishes. This can indicate dowsing with willow and a magic wand? Witches used willow.  She also holds a vase with water and a lotus flower.  Water is the dew of compassion and it has the qualities of purification. She is also revered by vegetarians. 

Sometimes shown with eleven heads and thousands of eyes on the palms of each hand, a symbol of seeing all the suffering of sentient beings and having thousands of arms to help them.

There is a sacred place to worship Kuan Yin, Putuo Mountain in China. It is an island near Ningpo in Zhejiang Province. She has made miraculous appearances in this place. 

I have prayed to in her  in her aspect as White Tara and she has come to me in meditations and is a spirit guide for me. She is like Mother Mary, White Bufallo Woman to Native Americans or even as the same emanation as Jesus. She would be considered like the Shekinah in Judaism. 

Anyone can pray to Kwan Yin, She forgives and comforts us as a Mother. She teaches us to forgive ourselves, and to love ourselves. She is said to appear to anyone who calls upon her. 

I didn’t realize that April 7 was considered Kwan Yin’s birthday. My mother,  may she rest in peace was born on this day. I am crying because I really gave her a hard time when I was a kid. When she died it was on a Holy Day and we were told that only very auspicious spiritual people die or are born on these days,and I didn’t know that either until it happened.

If you have guilt around your mother, for not respecting or dishonoring her, or the Feminine in any way shape or form, use this day to shed tears of purification for yourself and to ask for forgiveness through Kwan Yin and to have compassion with yourself.

Her mantra is OHM MANI PADME HUM – which means, Hail to the jewel in the lotus.

Usually a pure crystal mala or prayer beads are used to repeat the Buddhist mantra 108 times to Kwan Yin. You can use a clear quartz crystal and send your prayers into the crystal, Meditate on Kwan Yin. 

Anyone can be like a Bodhistavva, like Kwan Yin. The best thing to do today is to “Be the Goddess you want to see in the world.” Tm. With your kindness and compassion you can bring peace and tranquility into the world.  Listen to Lisa Thiel’s beautiful song about Kwan Yin, which I have listened to  for almost 30 years now. 

Kwan YIN lyrics 1985 by Susan Haist

Kwan Yin, Kwan Yin, Adi Shakti, too, White Buffalo Woman of the West Your Spirit dwells within our realms To teach and inspire us Goddess of grace, goddess of strength Keeper of the creative force Goddess of light, goddess of love I long to be one with you Teach me to be a goddess, too I long to be one with you Teach me to be a goddess, too.

Total Libra Lunar Eclipse, its affects

I had recorded  the Total Lunar Eclipse and a guided meditation for you and finally got it uploaded. It takes a second or so before you hear my voice. Let me know how it is for you.   See link below.

I wanted to focus on the Astrology of this Eclipse and how it affects you and the world.

Set for Greenwich UT 1:05 pm 

total lunar eclipse Tara Greene

The Total Lunar eclipse at the 15th degree of LIBRA reactivates and counterbalances the 7th Crown chakra opening of  Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn cardinal square on the EMOTIONAL, UNCONSCIOUS and MENTAL levels. 

Guess which country is being exactly impacted by the eclipse with their Natal Saturn at 14 degrees Libra?  Yes, if you guessed the U.S. of A. you get the cigar. Plus the U.S. natal SUN at 13 degrees Cancer creates a Grand Cardinal Cross out of this for America. Waking up in the U.S.A.? 

countries affected by the eclipse;

IRAN has Pluto at 19 degrees LIBRA in the February 1, 1979 chart.

SYRIA has a 15 degree Cancer ascendant and its Moon at 16 degrees Cancer

IRAQ has its MC at 16 degrees ARIES, July 14 1958 chart 

RUSSIA has Neptune at 15 degrees Capricorn in the Dec. 25, 1991; 7:35 p.m.Moscow

The areas where the eclipse is fully visible are affected the most.

Libra is all about the “other”; the other person, country, them, their stuff. There is reams to write just about that psychologically. The SUN URANUS energy in ARIES is all 1st house, about ME, and my stuff which I am going to fight for and defend.  We can see the choices clearly.  Yes Iran just signed a Libran agreement over nuclear weapons so this is a good sign on the surface. Surface is what LIBRA is all about. That is also where we need to be very careful. READ below, between and above the lines. Where’s the meat, the bones? That is Saturn’s domain.

LIBRA Lunar eclipse is to help us all get some much-needed balance- hopefully. Libra is always pulled in two opposite directions and the point is to find the fulcrum, the middle way that the Buddhists so fondly speak of.

LIBRA is EQUAL RIGHTS, marriage, the alchemical Inner marriage.We need to have equal rights for women on every level, and its coming, its evolving. The Uranus Pluto conjunction in the 60’s was the beginning of the Feminist movement,now it is taking real shape.

All relationships are coming into a KARMIC balance especially in a number 8 year. You will need to make choices, something Libra energy finds difficult as it wants to appear NICE. It wants to have its cake and eat it to. Something has to be sacrificed, you can’t do both at once. One side will have to take less in order to balance things out. I have four planets in Libra I know this issue.

Women

For women I think this Eclipse hits a very deep part of every woman’s life. Women been bought off  to believe that competing in the corporate world like a man is far superior than to being a woman or a mother. Women have been forced to give up listening to their intuition and expressing their femininity in their careers. They are forced to give up their mothering time which is an atrocious loss on so many levels and so unenlightened. European societies recognize the importance of stay at home mom’s and dad’s who get full pay for staying with their children for a year. Women will have to make their needs met and to bring work vs family into balance. 

THE SUN is conjunct asteroid PSYCHE and URANUS  pointing out the need to listen to our own inner authority, our souls/psyche and let ourselves shine with authenticity, out own bright light, our Uranian need to be free, to be true individuals who can protest the current fascist order en masse.

We also have to remember Uranus is Technology and we can’t allow it to completely isolate and overwhelm us in virtual land. Real relationships, LIBRA Moon is where we need to bring our lives into balance. Fixed star Algorab is conjunct the Moon and it is a nasty star. We may find ourselves in a difficult hopeless place if we neglect our relationship balance.

PLUTO is bringing fascist government policies into our lives at incredible rates. Internet surveillance, human rights issues- Libran ones are being highlighted now. The Aries/Uranus sun also symbolizes those Muslim extremist fighters, trying to take over in many parts of the world. We need a balance quickly.

LIBRA Lunar Eclipse is ruled by VENUS at the 21st degree of TAURUS where she is firmly, sensuously embodied in her full beauty and seductiveness. But she is 5 degrees away from ALGOL the most feared star-Medusa’s head. Medusa was originally an Amazon warriores much feared by the Patriarchy. They originated in LIBYA, which is a country also in the news these days. The Muslim extremists seem to be embodying Algol . Saturn will backtrack close to opposition to this star in mid summer. It will get more intense.

I feel this is also a foretelling of an economic slump or crash when Saturn backs up into Scorpio from mid-June until mid- September. 

SATURN is Retrograde in  a nice hot GRAND FIRE TRINE with Jupiter still Retrograde but not for long and the SUN. All of the “meat” is being cooked but we won’t be able to eat any of it till later.

MARS, the Sun’s ruler and Uranus is sleepily dozing in Taurus on Venus’ turf. Well this promises some peaceful negotiations, and a less aggressive attitude. 

MERCURY is also in Aries so speed dialing, and lots of new ideas are being generated. 

NEPTUNE is squaring SATURN and this will continue until Saturn backtracks into Scorpio,which becomes exact in November 2015.

WTF is real and what isn’t is a huge issue.

People are really waking up to all the lies, how they have been drugged by the food they eat, media, the culture, the lies of the governments, the health, medical and banking systems. This is good. Keep pinching yourself and keep asking what is really real and what isn’t. Spiritual energies will be considered as more or equally real to the material world but it may be confusing and quite a trial until we achieve a balance with that.

CHIRON in Pisces and PLUTO are in a YOD to JUPITER in LEO. The FINGER OF GOD, points to our need to stay in our hearts, LEO, our will power, our own leadership. to be courageous, fearless, protecting our children and our inner child. Playing more. This is a big drama. 

Check your natal chart to where 15 degrees LIBRA/ARIES energy is karmicaly awakening you.

The Lighter side of the eclipse is that it falls on EASTER which was originally a pagan ancient FERTILITY FESTIVAL dedicated to the Goddess OESTER, it means a fertile egg. Every full moon signifies this and this one even more so. 

What are you pregnant with and ready to be fertilized, nourished and to birth in the world?

Meditate at the time of the eclipse is optimal. It will be super quick. check local maps.

Don’t interupt the sorrow- Joni Mitchell 

Total Lunar Eclipse Blood Moon Resurrection part 1

April 4 2015 Total Lunar Libra Eclipse 

This is the third initiation of a Tetrad of four total eclipses in a row, a rare occurrence.

April 15, 2014 –TOTAL Lunar eclipse in Libra- self and others
Oct 8, 2014 – TOTAL Lunar eclipse Aries- “I am”
April 4, 2015 – TOTAL Lunar eclipse Libra – self and others
Sept 27, 2015 – TOTAL Lunar eclipse Aries – “I am”

This Eclipse carries multiple layers of symbols and meanings all of which teach us what needs to be worked on and with. This first part is a meditation with background information for you to use.

This Total lunar eclipse is all about communications, feelings and LIBRA is relationships. We need to think back to where our relationships were a year ago on the Total Lunar Eclipse Blood Moon on Passover April 15, 2014 at 25 degrees Libra.  The next trigger in this sequence was the October 8 Total Lunar eclipse at 15 degrees of ARIES exactly opposite to this one.  We are needing to take the opposite position from where we were then. More on the I-THOU relationship issue.

The eclipse happens at  the most powerful degree of LIBRA, the 15th  which symbolizes that  this eclipse is all about relationships; peace, harmony, beauty, balance, justice. All about seeing oneself in others. The I-thou relationship is clearly marked. We are all one blood.

The Full Moon itself is always a symbol of a fertilized ovum, as the Moon and women’s menstrual cycles are synchronized in natural harmony. This TOTAL eclipse further amps up the meaning and the unconscious sexual instinct to mate, to procreate, an ancient biological necessity.

The Full Moon being eclipsed symbolizes a huge fertile, creative potential to the LIBRA energy of a new masculine and new feminine and to bring them into a balanced relationship of equals; loving, respecting, sharing and caring for each other and the world.

PASSOVER and EASTER

The Blood MOON Total Eclipse occurs during the weekend of Passover and Easter combining the archetypal energies of two of the major world religions. Easter is the archetypal symbol of Jesus Christ, as the Sun willingly sacrificing himself and being reborn as a symbol for all humans of eternal life. We can be resurrected now into a new life.

Rabbi Jonathan Cahn’s books about The Shemitah, the 7 year cycles of leaving the earth fallow and clearing debts, and the blood moon prophesies also invoke this type of cycle.

Lunar eclipse energies stirs up the electro-magnetic fields, our unconscious feelings and emotions at this super high tide. Memories from previous eclipses may re-appear as they happen at the same degrees every 19 years.  The last one was April 3, 1996. Where were you at then?

The eclipse re-activates the seventh Uranus-Pluto square only 18 days before this eclipse. The Total Solar eclipse at the last degree of Pisces was only 15 days ago along with the Equinox portal. We are being sandwiched, squeezed, hammered and birthed as fast as we can be and thrust into a new awareness. 

LIBRA’s symbol the scales originate from the ancient Egyptian Goddess MAAT’s golden scales of justice and karma. The archetypal myth is that after death, the human heart is weighed against Maat’s crown of an ostrich feather. If the heart is heavier than the feather, then the soul must return to earth to continue to work on its’ issues until it completes and let go of its emotional baggage and achieves the requisite, light as a feather heart as a resurrection in this life. 

This is the key and it’s a beautiful symbol.

Libra by  J. Bosschart

This is where we are needing to go. Lightening up, letting go, dropping our stories, mental chatter, our stuck in the groove repetitive compulsions of unconscious karmic wounds. To be clear minded, unhampered emotionally, able to be fully in the now.

Numerology of 4/4 

The eclipse occurs on the 4th of the 4th , we are working with the four main elements at this eclipse.

1. The realm of the mind, LIBRA air element. 2. The MOON, feelings, water. 3. FIRE element of spirit, the Sun in ARIES, the partner of the Moon. 4. LIBRA is ruled by VENUS and she is strong in her earthy sign of Taurus now..  There are four directions, the number four is a foundation. It symbolizes POWER.

Tarot, Kabbalah and CELTIC correspondences.

LIBRA is symbolized by the Trump card of JUSTICE which is the 11th { and/or the 8th}  key of the Tarot.  Its color is emerald green. Its sound is F#. The symbol means an ox goad. The Hebrew letter is lamed.

Aries is the symbol of THE EMPEROR, TRUMP # 4. The Emperor is doubly proclaimed loudly. Aries is a new beginning in being the responsible wise leader of your own life. Aries is the I AM principle.

The Emperor’s color is scarlet. His tone C natural. His symbol means a window. His letter is Heh.

Is the Emperor wearing any clothes?

In CELTIC tree lore tradition this time of year is ruled by the ALDER tree. She is connected to water, to Bran, the raven, bringer of magic, Odin’s bird. LIBRA is connected with two trees. The bramble, a vision bringing plant, and IVY which represents the rebirth of all souls. Ivy symbolizes imagination, she is evergreen, related to Bacchus or Dionysus. This fits for the Easter symbolism as well. 

This will be the shortest eclipse of the century, good for those with short attention spans, so we have to be quick about it. Check out where, and if you will see all or part of it where you are located.U.s. Canada and world map

MEDITATION and RITUAL herbs, colors, incense, angels

For the ceremony and meditation we want to bring in as many attributes as we can.  Use what you have.

Minerals and Stones associated with Libra

Smoky quartz, rutilated quartz, Herkimer diamonds, Moonstones, emeralds, lapis, kunzite, coral.

Stones for Aries

Red garnets, bloodstones, carnelian, ruby, amber.

I would use watermelon tourmaline as it has both the green tourmaline for Libra and the red for Aries.

Set up an alter or sacred meditation space.

I would recommend lots of smudge and incense for Cardinal AIR.

Incense with coriander, rose, sweetgrass, sandalwood, and vanilla for LIBRA. Put on quiet meditation music. You can prerecord these instructions with pauses to listen to as you do the meditation.

Use white or green and red candles. The MOON’s color is silver. Use silver candle stick holder or put dimes, quarters or silver dollars on the alter and wear silver jewelry.

Libra rules the skin, small of the back and kidneys and adrenals. Cleansing and toning herbs are angelica, thyme, burdock and bearberry.  The Moon rules the breasts, the left eye, the lymph, bodily fluids and saliva, ovaries. If you have any problems with these areas bring them into your meditation, and use Reiki to amplify the healing energy.

Begin by smudging yourself first.  Light your candles.  One for each direction. I always work EAST to SOUTH to WEST TO NORTH. Always move clockwise.

Call in the four elements and the four direction into your sacred circle.

Call in the four Archangels, Michael, Gabriel, Ariel, Raphael in the same order.

Center yourself by breathing, sit or stand as feels right to you. You can do this ritual outdoors as well. Best to do this with your eyes closed.

The key is to meditate on opening the crown chakra first. As you did on the last 7th Uranus Pluto square.

Look up at the sky and see or imagine the moon. Feel the moon’s energy. Feel the silvery white pure light and the black endarkened Moonlight pouring down into your crown chakra at the top of your head. It will be powerful and easy to access. Breathe. Keep breathing naturally and easily. Your intention is everything. You are safe and in control.

 Imagine your crown chakra opening like an observatory. Feel the energy pulsing and becoming alive at your crown. Once you feel it is open begin to command your breath and the Moon’s energy down into your pineal gland, a violet flame or eye will appear, this is your 3rd eye being activated.  Feel it opening there between your brows. Keep breathing.  Once you feel that activation occur, then breathe the eclipsed moonlight down into your 5th chakra the throat center, and see and feel its blue color activated. Feel your throat expanding.

Then breathe down the sun/moon light into your 4th chakra your heart. It has a beautiful emerald green color. You need to feel ARIES absolute self-love first. Intend to connect to your own self as the beloved within. Then next in your heart imagine your beloved and you. See and feel the two of you dropping all your stories, your masks, and fear and centering together in love and union in each other’s hearts as equals, as opposite balances and as one whole entity.

When you sense this, then extend this energy out to the world. See all the others-all the humans and yourself as one equal half of the other. Muslims and Jews, Catholics and atheists, men and women.  See the wholeness, of self and other as one, both the yin and the yang, the polarity which is necessary for all of life. Feel the respect and the peace as each discovers how necessary and loved and needed the other is.

Keep breathing, go down to your 3rd chakra just below your navel, it is bright yellow, connected with the will, the SUN, and Aries. Breathe the Moonlight into this center and activate The EMPEROR here.

Then breathe down into your 2nd chakra. This is the womb in women, men have a spirit womb. It is bright orange and connected with creativity, birth, safety, sexuality. Feel this safe space filling with the Eclipsed moon light.

Then breathe down the dark moon light into your root chakra, at your perineum, it is bright red in color, like Mars, ruler of Aries.  This chakra relates to survival, groundedness, sexuality, power, passion Once you have the seven chakras open you are a rainbow bridge.

HEALING AND CLEANSING

Command the eclipsed moon’s light to cleanse and purify any residual conscious or unconscious memories, from past lives, future lives and present life karma. Take your time, feel or sense it in a detached LIBRA manner. Ask to clear out all misunderstandings and emotions which are out of balance, ignorant, or un-awakened to their total balance. Ask to bring yourself into a place of total harmony, balance, peace, purity and love, firmly rooted in the middle way or pillar of justice.

See you heart cleared of all negative fixations, emotional ties, debts, sacrifices and delusions. Sense your heart reborn anew, lighter, clearer in its original purity and open to love.

Now visualize your heart weighed against Maat’s ostrich feather and watch until your heart comes into a perfect balance on her scales of justice. Stay with this energy.

Be in this as long as you need. Meditate and ask what you need to do now. At the end of your meditation always thank the elements and spirits and close your circle. Write down visions, feelings and questions.

Blessings, TARA
