BEATLES memories Thanks from a True Blue fan,Tara Greene

Yes it was 50 years ago Feb 9th 1964 and I was a young girl at my usual Sunday night dinner at my Aun’t Becky’s house. Watching The Ed Sullivan Show was part of the ritual. I had seen a TV item about the Beatles before on the Jack Paar Show. But that night when The Beatles played, OMG it was like a lightning bolt went through me and woke me up. That was it. I was Hooked. Were you there?

The Beatles Tara Greene

Most of my cousins know this, that I got to see The Beatles sing four  times live, two times in one day, in Toronto at Maple Leaf Gardens because my Uncle John knew Harold Ballard who used to own the Gardens. I never screamed though. That was my first rock and roll concert ever. I started at the Top. I still have my ticket stubs and my concert  memorabilia. And I tried to sneak into The King Edward Hotel where they were staying and some guy tried to grab me and I got disgusted and left. I listen to The BEATLES all the time. I fantasized about them. I missed studying for exams to run out and buy Sergeant Pepper’s the day it was released. I drew pictures of them.  My whole young life was defined by the Beatles music like millions of other Baby Boomers. I have kept every mono album I bought then and some singles too.

I even ran away to New York City one day during the school week as I heard the Beatles were there. I had a few bucks, there was special student fares and I don’t remember how I got to the Airport. But I remember it cost $15 to fly to New York City. I walked around New York but didn’t get to see them. My Mom freaked out. It was fun. I walked around Greenwich Village by myself and saw Woody Allen on the street. I knew who Woody was, but I;d rather I;d seen the Beatles.

My Dad worked in the Toronto Stock Market and as a special gift he bought me some Stock in Northern Songs the Beatles publishing company. I have held onto these for years. I know Northern Songs got turned into Apple I believe. And Michael Jackson bought up the Beatles catalogue. Then it got sold to Sony Records. I hadn’t seen the original stock shares for years. This has haunted me.

So yesterday during a Mercury Retrograde. At my husbands urging I opened a big box of papers. I said no I have to go through everything. What if my Northern Songs certificate is there and we throw it out by accident? 

And lo and behold- in honor of the BEATLES. Here it is.

Ten shares which cost 2 shillings each. Dated May 25 1966.

The Beatles Tara Greene

I feel so grateful to have been born when I was, to know what Beatlemania as part of my life and growing up to the Beatles. Thank you John Lennon, who was my favourite, an artist, totally funny and a rebel. Paul McCartney for your songs, voice, Gemini charm. George Harrison for being reborn from an Indian spiritual man to being born in Liverpool to bring the EASTern music, meditation and customs to the West in a huge way. And Ringo thank you for just being you, keeping the beat, funny Ringo.

I took my daughter to see Paul McCartney play in Toronto 3 years ago. She was the same age I was when I saw the Beatles, so it felt right. My husband had never been lucky enough to see the Beatles play live.  I said it’s as close as you’ll get these days. I cried. We were all moved.

The world wouldn’t have been the same with out you four Liverpudlian working class boys taking on this huge mantle. You had immense talents, charisma, humour and souls. Beatles Music will always be remembered. The Modern Classical standard.

BTW Does anyone know what these 10 shares are worth? PLease let me know.

WOW 50 years. I don’t feel any older than when I was in my 40’s. Time is an illusion.

STORMY WEATHER POLAR VORTEX energy from Tara Greene

POLAR VORTEX

THE DEEP FREEZE

It was colder in Winnipeg, Canada than it was on Mars recently. You could have a simulated Martian experience with a bit of zero gravity and some fun lights and a MARtini or ten.

Are you freezing in record cold temperatures with me up here in Toronto where its supposed to feel like -40 Celcius with the wind chill?

A new lexicon Polar Vortex- BABY IT’S COLD OUTSIDE

polar vortex weather astr

Gotta keep laughing, or it just seems that way with chattterr ing teeth.

THE ICE KING HAS ARRIVED

Adventure Time Tara Greenee

Jay Leno said: “it was so cold, I saw an Amish guy buying an electric blanket.”

Here’s what I intuit is causing it:

POLAR BEARS sending POLAR VORTEX energy

to get even with humans for destroying the environment and melting their habitat.

POlar Vortex Tara Greene psychic

What does the Polar Bear say?

CRAZY weather is part of the ongoing Uranus in ARIES, Pluto in Capricorn square now joined by Jupiter in Cancer and Mars in Libra.

I know you think I attribute EVERYTHING to these planets right?

EARTH CHANGES through Native prophesies, and Dr. David Suzuki and more have been going on for many many years.

THIS IS what GLOBAL Warming looks like folks.

Does anyone remember the Golden Compass?

we need to learn to befriend that polar bear energy

the GOLDEN COMPASS Tara greene

POLAR BEAR as a TOTEM or shamanic Animal helper

Enormous strength and courage, indicates a capacity or need to : Navigate along the earth’s ley lines or align with Nature,  introspection,  self sustainability, pure spirit, the Dreamtime is calling, solitude, swimming through emotional waters with great strength, communication with Spirit, death and rebirth, playfulness.

So use the testing of the ICE QUEEN to shore up yourself, be smart, stay warm, get cosy indoors.

We really should all be hibernating.

Inspirational card of the Day,how’s your reputation? Macbeth,DMT, from Tara Greene

Inspurrational card of the day June 13

Since I had a lucid dream last night about a TOAD becoming my spirit animal

I felt compelled to check my Jamie Sam’s Animal Medicine Cards today

Skunk Animal medicine cards

Yes SKUNK MEDICINE 

I’ve written about Skunk medicine before.  SKUNK medicine, or power is not STINKY at all. 

In fact you could see it as a pun on Instincts. 

SKUNK medicine is very powerful and good because the skunk is known by its reputation alone.

Skunks are actually very timid creatures, known by its powerful smell.  Most animals, and people avoid the near sighted creature. It’s reputation precedes it. 

SKUNK MEDICINE teaches you  to walk your talk and respect yourself in order to create a position of strength and an honored reputation. Like skunk there is no need to bully, posture, aggravate or provoke others to protect themselves. With skunk medicine, you radiate an energy of self- esteem which permeates your body and psychic  energy field. You emanate strength no matter how small you are.

MEANING

Learn to assert who you are without any need for ego, pride or other postures. Others will respect you as you respect yourself. How you treat others and the standards you keep is how you will be treated back. You will also repel those who are not on the same level of intent. 

Skunk Song painting by Napoleon Brousseau

Skunk Song painting by Napoleon Brousseau 

Skunk medicine is also sexual energy. Animals use scents to attract mates. Sexual energy is very powerful and  should be used only when it’s appropriate and not for playing games or for seeing how “attractive” you are.  Your reputation as to how you deal with your self as a sexual being is always very important, especially for women.

Notice what kinds of people are attracted to you. What you believe about yourself is your ultimate protection.

We used to have a mama skunk and her babies living underneath our  my husband’s art studio in our backyard. When I used to smoke cigarettes I would be out there at night and I ran into the baby skunk a few times, it was like a cartoon- we both jumped back. As I meant it no harm it just stared at me and slowly loped away. I felt blessed  to have a skunk nearby.

Don’t stink up the place and leave a bad smell, taste or reputation behind you.

SKUNK SONG painting is by Napoleon Brousseau 1989 shown at the Purple Institution,Toronto.

More about TOAD medicine from my dear old friend Derek Robinson in B.C.

The toad’s the jewel in the skull .. witches of old europe like in Shakespeare’s “Toad, that under cold stone / Days and nights has thirty-one / Swelter’d venom sleeping got, / Boil thou first i’ the charmed pot” from Macbeth .. then there’s the sonoran desert toad whose skin venom contains large (as such things go) amounts of 5-Meo-DMT

see http://www.dmtsite.com/

DMT’s the dreaming drug produced in the pineal gland in the centre of the brain, very literally the third eye, like the living dinosaur New Zealand’s tuatara (yes!) still possesses in rudimentary form – “They are further unusual in having a pronounced photoreceptive eye dubbed the “third eye”, whose current function is a subject of ongoing research, but is thought to be involved in setting circadian and seasonal cycles.” sez wikipedia.

Andrew Weil gets the nod for scientifically pinning down the Sonoran desert toad cult, very likely Aztec & Mayan & more ancient shamanic devotees, there are these old mushroom stones from Mesoamerica with toads growing out of them.  

Funny that the NZ animal is called a TUATARA which is virtually the TARA MANTRA!!!!

So watch your dreams very carefully these day. The SATURN NEPTUNE GRAND TRINE will make them LUCIDLY real.  “waking up to the dream” seems to be the prevailing mood on planet earth about now

Dead Skunk In the Middle of the Road 

GREEN TARA FEMAL BUDHA MANTRA 

Inspirational Card of the Day, the DEVIL made me do it

May 30 Inspirational Card of the Day

Major Trump # XV

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.

 

Inspirational Card of the day, Aim high,truth as an arrow

May 11 Post Taurus Eclipse, we need some earth wisdom

The deck that called to me today is the Sacred Path Cards by Jamie Sams from 1991

not a Tarot deck but 44 cards of Native American wisdom

The Card is #12 THE ARROW 

arrow Oracles Tara  Greene

TRUTH AS PROTECTION

Native American shamanic teachings speak of words,thoughts and communications as arrows, or intentions- there are “light arrows” positive thoughts and “dark arrows” – negative thoughts.

The arrow is a symbol for the planet MERCURY-thoughts, communications,  the “word.” 

The Sun and Mercury Conjunct Today in Taurus.

This highlights the LIGHT, SOURCE and the embodied mind. 

Very auspicious.  Honor your inner truth. 

Please share widely so that all may benefit.

MEANING

The arrow brings a time of self- examination and questions- 

Am you being honest with yourself and with others?

Have you aimed straight and true in your opinions, decisions and goals?

Do you have a sense of brotherhood or Sisterhood?  

Is competing keeping you from having true friends?

Do you have the courage to stop criticizing others, and myself?

Be willing to face all truths, even when they hurt. 

 Are you being a hypocrite? Do you  walk your talk?

This card calls upon your deepest wells of strength and courage to face any enemy of truth

-the popular MEDIA, the culture itself, the Medical system, Big Pharma, Monsanto, the government

to do the right thing, to oppose corruption, OCCUPY your mind, your speech, your thoughts,your words.

and anyone, thing or entity blocking the truth from the people, the children and your self.

Be brave, trust your inner warrior or warrioress spirit.

Aim higher, telling the truth creates space for others to follow.

TELL THE TRUTH by Eric Clapton lyrics

Tell the truth. Tell me who’s been fooling you?
Tell the truth. Who’s been fooling who?

There you sit there, looking so cool
While the whole show is passing you by.
You better come to terms with your fellow men soon, cause…

The whole world is shaking now. Can’t you feel it?
A new dawn is breaking now. Can’t you see it?

It doesn’t matter just who you are,
Or where you’re going or been.
Open your eyes and look into your heart.

April 4, MLK, Mercury Direct, Dec 21, Astrology and more from Tara Greene

Mercury goes direct Wed. April 4 which is also the Anniversary of Martin Luther King’s Murder 44 years ago.

Hmm that’s 4/4/ and 44 years ago…  To honor the great visionary dreamer Please watch U2 Pride in the name of Love

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LHcP4MWABGY&feature=relmfu

MERCURY GOES DIRECT finally

Mercury goes DIRECT at  23 degrees of Pisces , it turned Retro at 6 degrees 49 mins of Aries so will actually take until April 23 to get back up to speed fully. Its been a trying time, use this slowly we turn step by step, direct motion to really think out where you are going as Mercury will re-enter Aries March 16. Mercury is still in the DREAM TIME in PISCES.

Moon is in Virgo since April 3 and Venus entered Gemini yesterday to stay for four months.

A whole lotta MUTABILITY here.

Gemini, Virgo, Pisces are all mutable signs. Mutable means easy changability, adaptable.

Did you feel the Venus in Gemini difference? Was an inspiring day. Moon was opposite Neptune, conjunct Mars opposite Chiron quincunxes Uranus in the middle of all that. Rocky seas you say?

PSYCHIC WEATHER theme of the Day

I am going to start writing about the overall psychic sense and synchronicity themes that show up in the day for me. Because  I am such a PSYCHIC TUNING FORK – it’s my job, I have been working as a psychic for over 20 years now,  I pick up the moods in the world, it’s not just my stuff. Here’s my  latest from April 3 which was 4/3/2012.

A picture is worth a thousand words. How many words actually? Water and technology. the butterfly emerging from the chrysalis. the words BEAUTY and LIGHT. the SILVER AGE. Dec. 21 2012 at Chicken Itza. Speaking of Chichen Itza

My first visit to Chicken Itza Pyramid in Mexico. It was December 21, 1977. OMG that’s 35 years ago now. My first cousin Carol Karasik had moved to Chiapas to San Cristobal de Los Casa, the year before with her husband, I came to visit them for Christmas. I happened to be at Chichen Itza on the Winter Solstice as I had met two very nice, young, well off  Mexican men who showed me around. In those days you could drive right up to the ruins. A beat up old American  car showed up just long enough for me to shoot this photo and drove off. I used this picture as the poster for an art show I did in 1978 called NEOTERIC and ARCHAIC RUINS which showed in Toronto.

This photo has always symbolized for me that the ancient Mayan culture was very strong, and that modern American culture was decrepit and falling apart. Hey how did I know that on that fateful day 35 years before THE BIG ONE!

Dec 21 Tara Greene at Chichen Itza Mexico Pyramid original photo

My first visit to Chicken Itza Pyramid in Mexico. It was December 21, 1977.

Moon will oppose Mercury late PDT. feelings will be felt in the gut and shouldn’t be hidden from.

April 5 Moon enters LIBRA 8:32 am PDT/11:32 am EDT 

Moon opposes Uranus for some brilliant out of the box balancing act thinking. Be original Be yourself.

VENUS Square Neptune in Pisces

The plot thickens. But Venus in Gemini is a butterfly and doesn’t like to get her wings sticky and wet.

Comet Elenin,economy,spiritual advice interview byTara greene

Watch my recent interview for Evolving Beings TV Sept 2011

Many topics covered, let me know what you think

P.S. AfterI posted this I came across this site www.in5d.com  which mentioned Jimi Hendrix prophesying this comet over 30 years ago. At first they quote Jimi Hendrix’s famous Voodoo Child lyrics. “‘scuse me while i kiss the sky.” Then a longer interview which you can read here.

http://www.in5d.com/jimi-hendrix-rock-prophecy-and-comet-elenin.html

The intersting part for me was, the synchonicity. Yes Jimi was ” a rock God” a musical genius, a very spiritual Sagittarian, a visionary. I adored Jimi and his music and I  had the priviledge to see Jimi play once or twice. My girlfriend and I met Jimi on May 3 1969 after he played in Toronto and spent the entire night talking with him at his hotel room at The Inn on the Park on Jarvis street. We didn’t know he had been busted. It made him relaxed to have us there and take his mind off his arrest. He didnt want us to leave.
