Fairies, Midsummer Night dreams 2021

Midsummer Night Fairy Magick Sun Celebration

June 20 is the Peak of the SUN’s LIGHT, the MASCULINE FIRE in the Northern Hemisphere. The longest night of the year in the North, its a time of celebration. As the sun peaks everything shifts gradually into the DARK FEMININE ENERGY begins to grow stronger until December 21st when it peaks then the powers are switched again. This is the balance of everything that exists in the Universe. We need these complimentary opposites.

The SUN is sitting on the TROPIC OF CANCER and in Tropical astrology we say the Sun has entered the sign of Cancer.

This is the PAGAN Cardinal Cross Quarter day of LITHA. 

As Summer begins in the North here in 2021 we are not quite getting out of months of lockdown due to Covid-19. Time to celebrate, Life is green, the living colours of flowers are everywhere and abundant. The air smells sweet, bees are buzzing. We are growing our own food in our gardens or containers. We are soaking up the rays.  The Goddess is symbolically Pregnant with the child she conceived at Spring equinox.

The Summer Solstice or LITHA begins 8:32 pm PDT/11:32 pm EDT/ JUNE 21 At 3:32 am GMT  as the SUN enters CANCER the 0-degree “world point.” It is the beginning of Winter Down Under.

Speaking of Midsummer nights dreams

JUPITER the planet of expansion is in its home rulership in PISCES the Sign of dreams, visions, the last sign, the house of magic and imagination as Jupiter turns RETROGRADE at 8:06 am PDT/ 11:06 am EDT/3:06 pm GMT.

We have been floating in a DREAMLAND of Pisces fairyland waters since May 13/14. This is very significant for this SOLSTICE season.

Jupiter turns Retrograde June 20 on Solstice at 2 Pisces and turns direct October 17/18 at 22 Aquarius. Jupiter was there before March 26/27. We will have to resift through all the new Aquarian ideas until then and relaunch when Jupiter hits 2 Pisces on January 8, 2022

The Bonfire

Bonfires are lit on hilltops, by holy wells, and at a sacred place, to honour the fullness of the Sun. People danced around and leap through the flames. Traditionally people stayed up all night on Midsummer’s Eve to welcome the sunrise. Coals from the Midsummer fire were scattered on fields to ensure a good harvest, you can scatter them in your garden

Midsummer is one of the most powerful nights for MAGICK,

Especially healing prayers, love magick, energy, protection and purification. It’s a time of gratitude for family and friends. Reflect on the progress of the seeds that you planted in the earth. A great time to get rid of patterns and objects that no longer serve your Higher Self. 

The Fairy Queen and the fairies are said to be out riding on MidSummer Night 

This is the time to strengthen your connection with the Fae or Fairie and otherworldly beings,

Honour the Fairies 

Create a fairie house in your yard or even in your window. Remember that fairies are very mischievous so be careful. Place spirit boundaries around your house, and protect yourself from their pranks while outside. Wear garlands of marigolds, ivy and or St. John’s Wort. White lily petals, rue and oatmeal in your pockets or in baskets help in protection. Bury a Witch Bottle, a glass container filled with sharp objects such as pins, nails and needles, ashes and salt before entrances to your home for protection.

Leave treats for the Fairies. They love sweets of all kinds. Leave offerings outside in the woods a park or your yard or windowsill.  Leave herbs, ribbons, seashells and bowls of milk outside to gift the Faeries.

Bless the animals.

Ancient herders brought a token animal to be blessed to protect their herds. Ask for protection and blessings for pets, livestock and wildlife.Have a Feast 

Some great summer dishes include seafood, watermelon, berries, lemonade, summer squash, and baked potatoes. 

Renew and clean Your Altar

Litha is a great time to clean, cleanse and re-decorate your altar for the Summer season. Take everything off of your altar, clean it, then cleanse it with dried Cedar, Sage, honeysuckle or other sweet incense or sweetgrass smoke. Add summer yellows to and golds to your altar.

Honour Sun Gods & Goddesses

Honor any solar deities with offerings and prayers Some of the sun gods and goddesses are Ra, Horus, Huitzilopochtli Aztec Sun and War God, Irish Goddess Aine, Celtic Sun God Belenos, Greek Sun God Helios, Roman Apollo, Etain Irish Sun Goddess, Yuyi, Taoist God of the Sun, Macha, Irish Goddess of women, Sunna, Norse Goddess of the Sun and many more. 

Flowers, honey honouring nature and growth

The Midsummer Moon is also known as the HONEYMOON, where this term originated. Mead is made, handfasting ceremonies are performed. Mead is considered to be a magical life-enhancing drink, You can make an altar to honour the Oak tree, with their leaves. Sunflowers are also a great example.  Magical baking and charms are created on this special day. Traditionally this festival spans three days. This year it is June 20-23rd.

Buttermilk Bread 

To bring abundance to your kitchen. Sunflower seeds represent the light half of the year and the poppy seeds represent the dark half of the year.

You will need:

3 cups of white flour, preferably bread flout type.

500 ml of Buttermilk 

I tsp.of bicarbonate of soda

Sunflower and poppy seeds for sprinking

Red ribbon and a sprig of rosemary

Place the flour in a large bowl. Make a well in the centre. Sieve in the blended salt and soda and pour in the buttermilk. Mix well with a wooden spoon until the dough feels springy. If it feels too sloppy just add a little more flour. Turn it onto a board and cover with a fine dusting of flour. Pat it with your hands until you have a round shape. Take a sharp knife and score lightly into eight sections, one for each festival. Sprinkle half of the loaf with poppy seeds and the other half with sunflower seeds.

Place onto a greased baking tray and pop your buttermilk bread into a moderate oven for about 20-25 minutes. Keep and eye on it. When the bread is ready it will change colour and it will sound hollow when you tap the bottom. Cool completely on a wire rack. When it is cool, place your sprig of rosemary on top and tie the red ribbon across the middle.

Consecrate the bread by turning the loaf three times saying “From the fields and through the stones, into fire, Midsummer Bread, as the Wheel turns may all be fed. Goddess Bless.”

Take your bread and share it with your family, friends or whoever you would like to bless. Eat it fresh, as soon as it is made if you can. 

Elderflower Champagne

Elderflowers peak at Midsummer. Pick them in the fullness of a sunny day, ideally on Midsummer’s Day. The Elder is sacred to the Mother Goddess and is often called the Witch’s Tree, the Elder Mother, or Queen of the Trees. It is protective, with wonderful healing properties. It aids transformation, change and renewal, this drink will aid in transforming your life. Or drink Elderberry Liqueur.

In Canada, Strongbow makes an elderflower cider. 

Ingredients:

8 litres water

1.25 kg sugar

8 large elderflower heads

4 lemons

4 tablespoons mild white wine vinegar

Do use screw-top bottles. Large plastic bottles are good. This is a fizzy drink, if not bottled tightly it can explode! Keep it somewhere safe. Make sure the elderflowers are clean and pick them when the sun is strongest. 

Boil the water and dissolve the sugar into it, organic sugar is best.

When the water cools, add the elderflowers, the juice of two of the lemons and slices of the other two, plus the vinegar.

Cover with a clean cloth and leave for a day.

Strain through a fine sieve or piece of muslin, carefully squeezing the flowers to extract as much flavour as possible.

Store in clean screw-top bottles.

Leave alone for 10 days or so. Drink within a month. Enjoy and give thanks to the Spirit of the Elder.

Honey Cake

A celebration of a sweet life. 

If you can source locally produced honey its the best. Wherever it comes from always thank the precious Bees. 

Ingredients:

225 gram Butter 1 cup
250 gms Honey or 1 cup 
100 gms Dark Muscovado Sugar, 3.5 ounces by weight 
3 Eggs, beaten
300 gms Self-Raising Flour, 1 1/2 cups 

Cut the butter into pieces and heat slowly, adding the honey and the sugar. When fully melted, turn up the heat and boil the mixture for one minute. Remove from the heat and allow to cool. Add the beaten eggs to the cooled honey mixture. Sift the flour into a large bowl and beat the liquid honey mixture into it until you have a smooth batter. Pour the mixture into a round lined sponge tin and bake in a preheated oven at 160 C for about 50 mins – or until the cake is well-risen and springs back to the touch. Cool on a rack and glaze with a few tablespoons of warm honey. A nice sweet treat.

Mars Retrograde conjunct Eris. Slow-release triggers

Golden_Apple_of_Discord_by_Jacob_Jordaens Public domain

Golden_Apple_of_Discord_by_Jacob_Jordaens/ Public domain 

Mars Retrograde conjuncts his mythological sister Eris, the Goddess of revenge, strife and disturbances October 3 at 10:51 pm PDT/ October 4th at 1:51 am EDT/ 5:51 am GMT. 

Mars the red warrior planet rules guns, the military, anger, competition defences, and masculine energy. Eris conjunct Mars is a slow-release anger trigger. 

“Happiness Is A Warm Gun” by The Beatles or The Across the Universe version is good too as exactly the theme song.

Eris is an awakener. She is an Amazon warrioress instigating disturbances, riots, protests for righteous injustice. We can see Eris at work in Black Lives Matter protests, and like the Yellow Jackets in France and the Hong Kong protests. Eris moves very, very slowly. It takes Eris 558 years to complete one orbit around the Sun. 

The dwarf planet has been in late degrees of Aries for years now and all the Cardinal Capricorn planets Saturn, Pluto, Jupiter have been in hard squares to her.

In myth, she was the uninvited guest to a  big wedding. She famously threw a golden apple inscribed “To the most beautiful of them all” at three Goddesses which eventually resulted in the Trojan War. In modern times Eris myth was incorporated into the Sleeping Beauty story. She became the uninvited fairy, who cursed Princess Aurora to sleep for 100 years until the prince came and woke her with a kiss.

All planets moving Retrograde are considered to be karmic In nature. Do be careful of being triggered with old jealousy, possessive and revenge issues all Scorpio signature dark unconscious energies. This can be coming at you from others as well as backlash from the collective unconscious too.

NOTE that PLUTO the planet which also governs SCORPIO in modern mythology turns DIRECT at 22 degrees CAPRICORN on the 4th at 6:32 am PDT/ 9:32 am EDT/ 1:32 am GMT. Planets are at their most powerful as they pivot changing direction from retrograde to Direct and vice-versa.

Look at where 24+ degrees ARIES is in your astrology chart to see how this double trouble disturbing energy will be affecting you personally. Also, look at 24+ CAPRICORN where Saturn Pluto and Jupiter are imposing reality on this anger. 24+ degrees LIBRA and CANCER are also being directly affected. 19-29 degrees of these Cardinal Signs are also included giving a wider scope. 

Use this energy signature and time to release old grudges, repressed anger and revenge emotional energies which are keeping you stuck and are holding you back from moving forwards freely.

February fever, Pluto’s month

“In ancient Roman religion, Februus, whose name means “purifier”, was the god of purification. He was also worshipped under the same name by the Etruscans as the god of purification, and also the underworld. For the Etruscans, Februus was also the god of riches (money/gold) and death, both connected to the underworld in the same natural manner as with the better-known Roman God Pluto.

  

Februus may have become the Roman Febris, goddess of fever (febris in Latin means fever) and malaria. These are possibly connected with the sweating of fevers, which was considered a purgative, washing, and purification process.

Februus is possibly named in honor of the more ancient  Februa (also Februalia and Februatio), the spring festival of washing and purification. Februus’ holy month was Februarius (of Februa), hence English February, a month named for the Februa/februalia spring purification festival which occurred on the 15th of that month.

These spring purification activities occurred at about the same time as Lupercalia, a Roman festival in honor of Faun and also the wolf who nursed Romulus and Remus, during which expiatory sacrifices and ritual purifications were also performed. Because of this coincidence, the two gods (Faun and Februus) were often considered the same entity.”-Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Februus

Februarius or February, fully the “February month” (Latinmensis Februarius), was the shortest month of the Roman calendar. It was eventually placed second in order, preceded by Ianuarius (“January“) and followed by Martius (“Mars‘ month”, March). In the oldest Roman calendar, which the Romans believed to have been instituted by their legendary founder Romulus, March was the first month, and the calendar year had only ten months in all. Ianuarius and Februarius were supposed to have been added by Numa Pompilius, the second king of Rome, originally at the end of the year. It is unclear when the Romans reset the course of the year so that January and February came first.[2]

Februarius was the only month in the pre-Julian calendar to have an even number of days, numbering 28.[3] This was mathematically necessary to permit the year itself to have an odd number of days.[4] Ancient sources derived Februarius from februum, a thing used for ritual purification. Most of the observances in this month concerned the dead or closure, reflecting the month’s original position at the end of the year. The Parentalia was a nine-day festival honoring the ancestors and propitiating the dead, while the Terminalia was a set of rituals pertaining to boundary stones that was probably also felt to reinforce the boundary of the year.[5]

Many Roman festivals and religious observances reflect the Romans’ agrarian way of life in their early history. In his treatise on farming, Varro divides the agricultural year into eight phases, with Spring beginning officially on February 7, when Favonius the west wind was thought to start blowing favorably and it was time to ready the fields.[6] The grain fields were to be weeded, vineyards tended, and old reeds burned. Some kinds of trees were pruned, and attention was given to olive and fruit trees.

The agricultural writer Columella says that meadows and grain fields are “purged” (purguntur), probably both in the practical sense of clearing away old debris and by means of ritual. The duties of February thus suggest the close bond between agriculture and religion in Roman culture. According to the farmers’ almanacs, the tutelary deity of the month was Neptune.[7]

February had one and possibly two moveable feasts (feriae conceptivae). The Amburbium (“City Circuit”) was a purification of the whole city with no fixed date, but seems to have been held in February.[9] The Fornacalia (“Oven Festival”) was celebrated by the thirty ancient divisions of the Roman people known as curiae. Each curia celebrated a festival separately under its own leader (curio) on various days following the Nones. These dates were established and publicized by the curio maximus, the chief curio. Anyone who missed the Fornacalia celebrated by his own curia, or who didn’t know his curia, could attend a public festival which was always held as the concluding ceremony on February 17.[10] The Fornacalia overlapped with the festival of the ancestral dead that dominated the month, and on its last day coincided with the Quirinalia, a day also known as the Feast of Fools (feriae stultorum)Februarius was thus such a religiously complex month that during the Julian reform of the calendar, when days were added to some months, it was left as it had been, even though it was the shortest month.[11]

Lupercalia/ Nirvana Day

So this is the origin of Valentine’s Day a pagan wild sexual, fertility festival involving animal sacrifice, coupling with strangers, nakedness, flagellation with goat thongs and wolf gods. February 15 Lupercalia https://www.google.ca/url?sa=i&source=web&cd=&ved=2ahUKEwi-1oygqr3gAhUG74MKHfU-BKIQzPwBegQIARAC&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.history.com%2Ftopics%2Fancient-rome%2Flupercalia&psig=AOvVaw1DzqqDwt9JLr6do2D2-_TU&ust=1550306057561008. I had always been told that February 15?is Nirvana day not the band but the day the Buddha became enlightened under the bodhi tree.

How was your Valentine’s Day? I imagine the energy was quite frenetic as we are still in the wake of good old Mars Uranus conjunction.

Gemini moon trines Sun sextiles Uranus and squares Chiron in Pisces yeah there’s some hurting.

Moon enters emotional nurturing cancer its home sign in the A.M.

Lammas Pagan Witch Harvest Festival August 1

George Cole (1810-1883) [Public domain] Harvest rest

George Cole (1810-1883) [Public domain] Harvest rest


August 1 is celebrated as one of the 8 spokes of the Turning of the year in the ancient nature calendar. Lammas is a pagan Harvest festival
This is the original Burning Man Festival where John Barleycorn the original wheat/corn man was burned as an effigy. It’s traditionally a time of celebration of the harvest. John Barleycorn or a corn man figure symbolizing the sacred grain and most especially a sacred loaf was baked and offered to the four directions and to the earth Mother Ceres/Virgo in gratitude. 

Traditional Lammas Loaf

The Goddess CERES/ Demeter would be honored as the giver of abundant grains. Lughnasad is its other name. We are half way to the AUTUMN Equinox now. It is an Air element festival traditionally celebrated as the wake of the Sun KING, who is a star,  is dying now in the waning of his own Light. Cookie people figures and star cookies are baked in celebration.  It is time of anxious waiting, we are not yet assured of a harvest which will keep the people alive. It is a time to free oneself from FEAR.  A snake dance is created going counter clockwise, bread figures are thrown into the bonfire to symbolize the burning up of one’s fears. Then one says what one hopes to harvest.

Symbols of STARS are held up. The High Priestess would say,

“MAY THE STAR OF HOPE BE WITHIN US ALWAYS.”

This is also the symbol of the Tarot Card #17 The Star which is associated with Aquarius. We just had the Aquarius Lunar Eclipse Super Bloody Moon July 27th we are in synch.

The coveners would eat the star cookies and celebrate. see link below for more details .

INTENTION IS EVERYTHING!

Last May 2013 I decided that I needed more followers on my blog. I only had a few hundred, so I started to write every day. It has been fun, an obligation, an honor, hard work, an obsession- Saturn in SCORPIO was in my 12th house.

I now have over 5,400 people signed up to get email alerts every time I blog. WOW! THANKS!

I get notifications each time this happens,  since mid January I am being flooded with them again and most of them seem made up to me. Very cleverly I might add. They make me laugh and I can tell sequence, the funny name,the numbers the address. The current spate is from France. Many are real, with gravators and Hotmail account followers.

I can’t thank each one of you one at a time.

And I cant figure out why all these seemingly fake addresses are linking to this blog?  What’s the purpose? I hope you aren’t using this to spam people.  If you can get let me know and get back to me, I’d appreciate that.

VENUS is now faintly visible as the MORNING STAR or MORGANSTERN,

You can make morning wishes now. VENUS will be rising about 2 hours ahead of the Sun.

RENE MAGRITTE , THE RETURN 1940 Brussels Belgium

Jupiter is RETROGRADING back over the U.S. SUN again!

Getting HIGH at home, with a little help from your friends, as more states legalize marijuana is one of the outcomes of this transit.

JUPITER turns DIRECT where it has the most power, right on that magical 13th + degree of CANCER on FEBRUARY 1st which is just around GROUNDHOG Day. Which is also an overlay of IMBOLC a pagan cross quarter ceremonial day on FEB 2

It’s all a metaphor. I am sure most of you are familiar with the 1993 Bill Murray movie, GROUNDHOG DAY which is all about KARMA, repeating the same patterns, situations and experiences over and over. We can all identify with that right? Lets hear from you.

It’s a comedy. Jupiter makes us laugh.

 JUPITER IN CANCER is very fruitful, fertile, brings HIGH HOPES.

In the movie, and each one of us is Directing, starring in and producing our own movies.

WHAT’S YOUR MOVIE TITLE?

Phil, the leading man, who Murray plays, must figure out that he can choose to learn and become a better person. Then, after much work,  his life goes forwards and he finds happiness and love.

So expect some major DEJA VU’s in the U.S. on all levels, economic, political, or perhaps we collectively have learned some lessons and are FINALLY ready to move on and CHANGE the old, old patterns?

Also if you have planets near 13 degrees of all CARDINAL SIGNS you are the most hit. DING DING

NEW YORK CITY AMSTERDAM AND VENICE are all Cancer Sun sign cities.

NEW Hampshire, Virginia, Idaho and Wyoming are all Cancer Ruled states.

Canada of course.

PERSONALLY JUPITER is conjuncting my Uranus again.

THE WIN THE LOTTERY TRANSIT according to another astrologer.

When you are dealing with URANUS energy it is very chaotic. 

BE VERY CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR.

It may feel like a big sucker punch as well. All part of the process my dears.

I am noticing that many people are making very positive breakthroughs who have done their shadow work and are appearing to receive support and others are getting totally mired down and crashing now without any hope.  We are all at different stages of the cycles.

Some clients of mine are really going through  their personal crash and burn but it is all a necessary part of the journey and its the step towards awakening.

I am feeling the cosmic heaviness. I am tired too.  The remedy is:

Do your own shit work. Get a flashlight and stick it up your butt figuratively speaking.

The DEVIL TAROT TRUMP TARA GREENE

THE DEVIL Visconti- Sforza deck Italian Renaissance

There are many variations on the Devil Card in the Tarot.

It traditionally shows BAPHOMET a pan like God with a man and a woman bound and chained before him.

The Devil is associated with the Astrology sign of CAPRICORN as he relates to earthy, material, corporeal desires of the flesh and worldly success.

Greed, selling your SOUL TO THE DEVIL  for material gain as in The famous film Rosemary’s Baby.

In the Harry Potter Tarot the Devil is of course Lord Voldemort. The total incarnation of evil, power over, ruthless,vindictive, inhuman, separated, soul wounded, totally rejected.

The HARRY POTTER TAROT  DEVIL CARD

Harry Potter Tarot Tara Greene

The CATHOLIC CHURCH created the Devil, the devil is all about projection. Yes in JUNGIAN psychology, the shadow.

The Devil represents all of our “evil” taboos and unacceptable parts of ourselves, that’s the shadow we see in all “others.”

Whether that is fear of homosexuals, Jews, Infidels, liberals, immigrants, Muslims, fat people, witches, conservatives, intellectuals or Fear itself. Muslim Terrorists have the biggest blackest shadow of all.  Also NEW AGE whiter than white shadow people who assume they are purer, higher, etc. Ascending.  Also very dangerous.

They symbolize our own unaccepted unintegrated parts of ourselves.

The Devil is fear, HATRED,  separation. The opposite card to THE Devil it’s partner is THE LOVERS. 15 & 6 = the same number.

Carl Jung famously said there are only Two emotions. LOVE or FEAR.

If we choose LOVE then all is ONE harmonious there is no “other.”

If we choose FEAR  and separation then we are left out in the cold, we separate ourselves from creation.

Where there is LOVE there can be no fear.

“The DEVIL works for GOD”  is one of my favourtie Stuart Wilde quotes and its true.

Fear of the Devil of Hell, or eternal damnation a story the CatHOLIC church made up keeps people in check.

YES there is real evil, negative entities abound. The Kabbalah calls them Qliphot or “Shells.”

THE CATHOLIC CHURCH  burned tortured and killed around 9 million mainly women for over 300 years, to steal their property, to disenfranchise midwives, independent women, pagans who still believed in the OLD RELIGION of the Goddess, Nature, which honored sexuality as part of Life.

The Church accused others of  “Consorting with the devil” is a euphemism for their own greed, denied lust, attempting to control human sexuality, their “holier than thou” stance.   REALLY if there ever was a devil in disguise it is the Church itself. Not the beautiful teachings of JESUS

but that kind of organized power and control hungry manipulative, sexually deviant CHURCH.

THE VATICAN is going to come apart at the seams now because of child abuse, stealing, robbing, and worse. 

Forget all organized religions unless they practice what they preach.  Tibetan Buddhists do not fight or kill.

THE DEVIL MADE ME DO IT!

I am late today, because I have just  finished up my taxes. TAXES, ruled by Saturn. The DEVIL is known as SATAN/the planet SATURN.

The earthy real world = the wordly temptations of the flesh.

We live in a greed filled almighty buck Devil world right now.  The Devil is so deep and complex.

MEANING

Make friends with your own shadow, what bedevills you is something within yourself, never anything outside.  What tempts you?  Sex, Drugs, Chocolate cake, ambition?  Are you struggling with your addictions? Your own inner demons? What is the core hurt behind that addiction?

LOVE IS ALWAYS THE CURE.

That is one of the major lessons in the Tarot. The Devil was originally PAN the pagan horny half-goat- the association with Capricorn. The Thoth Tarot shows an erect penis subliminally in the image. Embrace all of life, sex is  a natural part.  YOUnger people are freer with sexuality but the old Devil’s still linger. They are all of our fears.

You came, I was alone, I should have known, You were temptation. Your smile luring me on, my heart was gone, You were temptation. It would be thrilling if you were willing, But it can never be, pity me, For you were born to be kissed, I can’t resist, You are temptation, and I am yours, Here is my heart, take it and say we’ll never part, I ‘m just a slave, only a slave to you, Temptation, I’m your slave.

Saturn RETROGRADE in Scorpio is helping us to take responsability for our past karmic actions and to forgive and make amends.

Saturn is making your  highest yearning for HEAVEN a reality.

All Gemini and  Sagittarius are being challenged through squares to grow spiritually to evolve, to let go of the past- big time..

Virgo’s are being opposed by all that water, Things can feel very muddy, and neat freaking Virgo’s can’t take it. What me dream?

Mind does not matter in Pisces.

It feels like the big Fog, confusing, dreamy, romantic, idealistic, cosmic, drugged out, spaced out, addicted, scared shitless, no boundaries,

This 7 planet overload in Pisces is the Divine Feminine rebirthing the whole of human consciousness and GAIA,

our attention is being drawn to the oceans, water, marine life really being endangered. Water will be the most precious commodity. Our marine life is being threatened by HAARP and Navy sonar work. Dolphins and whales are ancient ancestors, we cannot afford to have these magnificent creatures destroyed. Do not eat fish from the Pacific it’s contaminated by Fukushima radiation.

Pisces energy is also squared by Jupiter in GEMINI, Jupiter is the ancient ruler of PISCES and the dispositer of all that PISCES unconscious energy. Neptune in Pisces rules everything in the 12th sign. It is time to see Gemini duality for what it really is -YIN YANG, polarity, Masculine/Feminine.

Jupiter Direct Astrology,Thor and his sexy hammer, Are you ready to rock on?

FAST RELIEF is 5 days away. Your best laid intentions gone nowhere? Your sex life bombed? Didn’t get the raise?

Been having a harder time sticking with your diet?  Conquering an addiction or life just feels like  my 14-year-old daughter says.

” IT SUCKS TO BE YOU.”

seem’s like you’re an upended turtle that  nada is moving forward?

BLAME IT ON JUPITER’s RETROGRADE motion since Oct 5, 2012 that’s why.  Just like Mercury Retrograde,  Jupiter does that nasty too.

It’s hard to get ahead when Jupiter/ THOR  is Retrograde.

THOR in Viking mythology is a personification of Jupiter, aka Zeus, throwing lightning bolts to the Greeks. 

THOR, the BIG  hammer guy, is popping up as a cultural hero again. SUPER HERO for our age

Jupiter is MR. BIG, ruler of sign Sagittarius and Pisces traditionally. Jupiter rules OPTIMISM. Good humour, luck, abundance,honesty 

Ask yourself 

Have things been more serious while Jupiter is Retro in your life?  Has your sex life bombed? 

What do Retro Gods do? Hang out in God caves, lounge with their sport buddies, tell big jokes and smoke big cigars, bowl,carouse,

RETROGRADE JUPITER holds back all the actions Jupiter rules- such as

Jupiter rules the LIVER, the largest organ in the body,  therefore de-toxing,

arteries, pelvis, thighs, a euphemism for sex,cholesterol, gout, weight problems,cataracts, intoxication. sports, publishing, higher law, education, philosophy, travel, adventure, generosity,  fertility, animals,  gotta have it all, spirituality, religion, compassion, bliss,creativity, the arts.

Lawyers are Jupiter ruled, they are supposed to be honest; athletes, philanthropists, Santa Claus is a Jupiter type figure. 

Didn’t get that expected raise lately?

Did you have a lean Xmas?

All you hard to hold down Sagittarius and floaty Pisceans  are frothing at  the bit for THOR to get Thundering again.

Check out where the damage has been in your natal chart- where  are Sagittarius and  PISCES  in your natal chart. Houses? aspects?

 You can go to ASTRODIENST – http://www.astrodienst.com a very reliable free  European site.

Jupiter in Gemini is weak as he is in the opposite sign of the one he ruled. THOR WEAK? 

Jupiter turns DIRECT Jan 30 @ 3:37 am PST/ 6:37 am EST at 6 degrees 19 minutes of the TWINS

If you are  SAGITTARIAN, a PISCES  or a GEMINI you should feel THOR’s hammer start to rock with Thunder

and sparks of lightning beginning to fly!

It will take until April 25 for Jupiter to pass 16 degrees 25 minutes of Gemini where it left off last Oct.

So use the forward Jupiter action to work in the shadow period with full plans to BIRTH your new projects on that date and after in April.

Writers, artists, collective spiritual work, imagers, photographers, publishers,teachers the  re-writing of laws are all in the agenda NOW.

Your usually optimistic bouncing ball, buoyant humored self  will be back soon…

JUPITER WILL BE SWIMMING IN YOUR POOL SOON CANCER’s 

CANCER peeps it will be your BEST YEAR in 12, when Jupiter enters the MOST FEMININE motherly nurturing sign on JUNE 26. 

more bout that later.

I am a Sagittarius + Moon + Mercury there at the Galactic Center. My North Node is in Pisces so Jupiter rules a lot of my stuff.

1:11 Capricorn New Moon, Numerology,scapegoat Astrology Tara Greene

OMG things are getting quite transparent. Things are fluxing like crazy. Clients are coming to me feeling suicidal, awash with all the big major Astrological energies. Most of these clients are born in 1984 or mid 1977 and are getting major Uranus and Pluto hits.

HOw are you doing?

Breathe, everyone is feeling the undulating currants of the snake. Shed shed shedding your old skin.

The first New moon of 2013 is a reality check, a horny one at that. Giving us steadfastness.

Capricorn sure footednessCAPRICORN SURE FOOTEDNESS

the first since the Winter Solstice, has Sun Moon Mercury Venus and JUNO all in Capricorn- that’s 5 objects in the sign, called a stellium in Astrologeese language.

Pretty earthy. Capricorn in spite of its being thought of as all corporate these days, structure, hierarchies, the Patriarchy

is  an EARTH SIGN and all earth signs are FEMININE. 

CAPRA means a SHE GOAT.  Capricious derives from this name.A she-goat breast fed  Zeus as an infant.

Traditionally  SATURN was the GREAT MOTHER , Saturn rules matter and matter = mother.

for we are all of woman born and Saturn rules the 3rd dimension, reality, density, the material world.

and my Tarot card teacher taught me its connection with Kabbalah that Saturn is Binah the 3rd Sephiroth on the Tree of Life.

She is the Empress although usually associated with Venus. it’s complicated.

Goats were often used as scapegoats, all the sins of the old year were intentionally placed on to the goat who was taken far from the city and left to wander, taking everyone’s old sins with them. It is a nice ritual, and serves a purpose. but dont scapegoat anyone or thing. stay real.

1:11 is the signification for the 11:11 world wide meditation that occurred in 1992.

it is a significator of new beginnings and memory= 11 is memory, master number. Do you see 11:11 on your clock? wake up time.

Sun and Moon exactly quincunx Ceres at 21 degrees of Gemini- indicating Gemini=-mind and matter need to learn how to integrate, understand and speak the same language, walk the same talk so to speak.

PLUTO MOVES INTO new territory-since april 2012 

Pluto last went Retrograde APRIL 11 2012 at 9 degrees 34 minutes and is NOW just surpassing that point,

what were you doing last April? It’s been a long and winding soul road back up, looking in the rear view mirror in Hades.

Pluto advances only 2 degrees this entire year.

Uranus advances to 12 degrees 31 minutes of ARIES  by year’s end from 4 degrees 46 minutes Jan 1 2013 and ends the year at 8 degrees 40 minutes.

Revolution and Destruction/resurrection  are the names to bet on

THE 2 power planets continue to be in a tight square breaking down society, making new warriors,gun control issues, inventions,revolutions personally and all over  the world.

Chiron squares Saturn from 6 Pisces to 10 Scorpio 

Yes LOVE HURTS,

and old karmic wounds hurt, and your feet should hurt- Pisces, and sexuality, cruelty, S & M, treatment of rape- which is  Scorpio ruled, the INDIA rape case being ousted into world headlines yes women’s rights are front and center where they will be for the next…long time.

and all forms of terrorism, including financial, ruthless, wanton waste, are all being revealed through Saturn’s cold eye.

Neptune advances to 1 degree Pisces now.

Mars is in Aquarius in sighting new technology revolutions & demands for more freedoms.

Jupiter is still Retrograde till January 30 so keep reviewing in your notebooks and journals what territory you gained, lost, neglected, let go of last year.

ERIS the new Goddess dwarf planet on  the block -Goddess of DISCORD is at 21 degrees  ARIES, exactly square to SUN AND MOON

indicating this is the WINTER of our DISCONTENT

the North Node at 24 degrees Scorpio- our highest spiritual goal, is quincunx to ERIS, it is a fight to stay centered and focused on the great transformation at hand

We might well feel like Captain Ahab in the storm bravely fighting to keep his hands on the ships’ wheel, weathering the storm, fate, Moby Dick,

his obsessions, or like Captain Kirk on Starship Enterprise, or battling the Empire’s huge hordes against ghastly odds.,

But remember the FORCE IS WITHIN YOU.

The need to stay grounded is so important –wear or carry black tourmaline and hematite

Protect yourself- breathe, rest, we should be like bears in the cave

eat lots of fetta cheese.

wear your goat horns like a proud VALKYRIE they are horns of heavenly protection.

Goat and Goddess

Blessings TARA
