These days Halloween has become another day in the year in which to sell lots of scary rubber and plastic paraphernalia, fake blood, creaky coffin lid opening soundtracks, the Monster Mash, etc etc. another commercial holiday. Children dressed in costumes go door to door with their pillowcases {environmentally friendly} asking Trick or Treat! The kiddies are given way too much sugar, and carefully pre-packaged non interfered with goods. Adults these days get into the Halloween theme by dressing up- straight guys love to be able to go out in drag on Halloween and generally party, funkily “spook-up” their environments and drink a lot. Lots of scary movies get shown.

But let’s not forget the origins of Halloween. It is Hallowed Evening. A Holy Evening, the Ancient Pagan/Wiccan New Year during the month when the Sun is in Scorpio, sign of Birth Death and Transformation. It is close to the mid-point between Autumn and Winter Solstice. Death is Rebirth. Wiccans honour this eve as the night when the veil between the two worlds is thinnest and much scrying, gazing into crystal balls and connecting with the spirits of the dead goes on as this night offers the easiest access.

The Wheel of the Year Turns and this is a Sabbat or Sabbath Night, covens gather to do Ceremony. This is a Sacred not a Scared Night.

Read about the history of Samhain https://www.history.com/topics/holidays/samhain

I wish in the midst of your pumpkin carving and revelry that you take time out to honour this day as it was originally intended. Remember in the midst of all the superficial trappings of Halloween, the hundreds of thousands, some say up to 9,000,000 mainly women, children and men who were accused of being witches by the Catholic Church who were tortured and burned at the stake. Old women, crones, medicine women, herbalists, midwives, pagans,their families, the poor, all innocent people who lived in harmony with Nature, who Loved their Mother the Earth, who knew the Wise Women’s Ways, the ancient ways to heal, to tend the sick, the dying, the mothers giving birth. It was a misogynist Nazi Christian tyranny that went on for over 300 years in Europe and to the New World where the last woman was burned at the stake at Salem. Remember this Holocaust because it wasn’t so long ago. You didn’t have to be Jewish or Muslim you mainly just had to be a woman and therefore evil in the sainted eyes of the Holy Christian Church.

Witch Burning

I remember my own burning, the Inquisitors {one of whom turned out to be in this present life, my first husband, and a couple of Real Estate Agents, one Jewish, one Black} I relived this memory of my past life during a Holotropic Breathwork session. Many other women also relived the same experiences. It was horrible, my own two children were forced to stand and watch as their mother was tied to the stake and the fire lit. Of course I wasn’t meek or mild, I screamed and cursed them all for their inhumanity and ignorance, for their sadism and cruelty.

Those 100,000-200,000 to 9 million innocent souls who were terribly tortured and burned are back now on this earth.

Deep in the cells of your being in your cellular consciousness be you male or female at this time, you remember the Burning Times when you lived in total fear, when you hid you pagan religion, your ability to help, to heal, when tyranny was all around and anyone could accuse you of being a witch thereby ensuring your almost certain death. Watch The Burning Times a Canada Film Board movie which chronicles in detail this stain upon humanity.

Light a candle for those hundreds of thousands of souls who were innocent and remember what it was like. Given 6 degrees of separation you or someone you love, your children or your dog or cat, a friend or even your landlord was surely enough one of those people.

It’s time to acknowledge the deep pain in the shadows of our unconscious. The only way to heal it is to acknowledge that shadow, let the tears flow, the grief, the agony. This brings it out of unconsciousness otherwise shadow control our actions unconsciously and allows us to keep inflicting pain on others and ourselves, believing that we are not worthy, not lovable, deceitful, sinners, powerless. There is a collective shadow of women being afraid to hold their power and beauty.

As this is a New Year in the Ancient Count of Days Light a Candle of Illumination and Enlightenment and go beyond the rage, the anger into Love and Forgiveness. For the only way out is to forgive the accusers for their ignorance. This takes great strength and courage, for as you Forgive them you also forgive yourself and allow yourself to be free of the past.

They will have gotten their karmic comeuppance.

HALLOWEEN is SAMHAIN is the Pagan New year!

We are totally out of synch with solar/lunar natural cycle Westerners who denigrate the earth, the Feminine, the Goddess, and ourselves celebrate New Year’s on a totally artificial Gregorian calendar date 2 months later.  Why not get in synch now?

 The commercialized version of Halloween which has been handed down to us, does partake of some of the original mystery of this night filled with ghosts and spirits walking amongst the living.

October 31 is the night when the veil which divides the worlds of the living and the dead is the thinnest. Covens of pagans, who are ancient nature worshippers, labelled witches and persecuted by the Catholic Church for centuries, would gather to celebrate this sacred Night, the direction of the North West on the great round of the wheel of Life.

Plates of cakes and wine with candles lit are offered to your beloved ancestors, without whom your consciousness and body would not be here. Recalling your departed relatives with reverence is part of the sacredness of this day.

An altar is decorated with autumn leaves, the oranges and golds, the pumpkin, a fall vegetable, one of the last of the season, symbolizes the full round, ripe with abundant seeds of Life.  The harvest has been gathered, the fields are fallow. The King of the Waning Year has sailed over the sunless sea of the womb of the Mother, and alights on the Shining Isle, the luminous wolrd egg, becoming the seed of his own rebirth. The gates of life and death are opened! the new Sun child is conceived, the dead arise and walk, and to the living is revealed the Mystery, that there is no death, that life is everlasting, all endings are but new beginnings. We meet in time out of time, everywhere and nowhere, here and there, at once, to greet the Lord of Death, who is Lord of Life and the Triple Goddess who is the circle of Rebirth. – referenced to Starhawk.

It is the best night to scry gazing into crystals or water.

The popular children’s Halloween game of bobbing for apples comes down to us from the original ancient ceremonial use of the apple at the Halloween Sabbat ceremony. An apple is Goddesse’s sacred fruit of Life- remember the Garden of Eden? It is cut by a ritual sword or athame splitting it open to reveal it as the fruit of death as well. The 2 in One.  All apples are Goddess symbols, the shape of the fruits’ seeds is the 5 sided pentagram , the five fold star of rebirth, as Venus actually cycles in the pentagram shape over time. Upright pentagrams are symbols of Venus herself. The downturned ones are inverted used for black magic and negative.

Apples and eaten wine is drunk. Celebrations of rebirth, renewal, everlasting life is what Halloween is all about. At Midnight Nov 1st becomes the day of the Dead celebrated throughout Mexico, it is coincidentally also part of that ancient Halloween celebration. The spirits of the dead are able to intermingle with the living. Meals are shared with the departed ancestors and friends. In Mexico great family picnics occur in cemeteries. The dead are considered to be helpers and protectors of the living from the beyond always with us but closer this night.

Happy Samhain

remember this is the best night for scrying and psychic work and contacting spirits. Time to go within in the Northern Hemisphere.

The sun is going Crazy

The sun has been putting out major Solar flares and eruptions, and CME’s creating solar storms, radio and power blackouts -and amazingly beautiful northern lights displays further South than normal. If you are sensitive you feel the effects of these Solar Flares as they charge the magnetosphere of the earth abs our bodies. Your pets and animals respond more directly to these blasts of solar winds and charged particles. If you feel exhausted, get headaches and for me it’s vertigo, these are all signs that you are feeling those sunspots. Rest drink lots of water and stay grounded. Feel how our star is affecting the earth and your body directly. You know you are in direct contact with the stars thus way. Everything is interconnected. See the ultra violet influx as charging up your energy fields. Watch the video . youtube.com/watch

11:11 Venus Lilith in Cancer,

Venus and Lilith meet at 11:11 of Cancer July 27. A Master Number for the Life and Death bringing Mother archetypes. Stop the Patriarchal misogynist split by remembering Nature the Divine Feminine has both powers.

LILITH in Cancer is especially the Goddess of abortion traditionally. Women are both birth givers and death bringers and have autonomy over their bodies.

This is especially poignant with the conservative backlash to control women’s bodies in the U.S. but the revolution is about to begin, especially this weekend with the Mars Uranus and North Node in Taurus ruled by Venus.

Ask the Oracles Tune in March 14 Tara Greene

Tune in March 14 live 12:00 pm EDT, I am special guest with the amazing hosts Amy Zerner and Monte Farber of The Enchanted World and Jeff Pulver. Tune in Pulver Ask The Oracles http://www.pulver.com

Major Solar Flare March 13, Soul Upgrade


Sp
aceweather.com reported, “A full-halo CME (coronal mass ejection) is heading directly for Earth. ETA: late on March 13th. This CME is the result of a long duration C2-class solar flare. Normally, C-class flares are not considered to be strong. However, this one lasted nearly 12 hours, allowing it to pump plenty of energy into the CME.”

THE CME synchronizes with the Sun conjuncts Neptune today at 22+Pisces at 7:43 am EDT effects increase spiritual, psychic energy. Drink lots of water, rest, meditate, visualize, you may be feeling exhausted. Trust that the Sun and spiritual Neptune are amping up our spiritual resonance.

These solar storms always affect the electromagnetic fields of the earth and our bodies and our pets who feel them more significantly than we do.

We’ve already been feeling emotional, physically and mentally burnt out in recent days from the world’s situation. Grief, depression, frustration, helplessness and isolation have been ongoing for two years now. If you’ve been feeling the need to sleep far more than normal, and found you are struggling to make it through the day without a nap, i certainly have too, then waking up still not feel fully rested.

Solar storms are known to desynchronize our circadian rhythm, our internal biological clock that controls our sleep and wake times. Plus it is DST at 2:00 am March 13 where we lose one hour of sleep by Springing ahead. The solar storm intensifies disrupted sleep patterns, exhaustion and vivid dreams or nightmares due to this.

“When solar winds interact with Earth’s electromagnetic field, it temporarily disturbs the magnetosphere. Humans feel the effects because we each have a personal electromagnetic field surrounding us, our aura. When Earth’s electromagnetic field is pushed and pulled by solar energy, our own field senses the magnetic force and is also pushed and pulled. “This magnetosphere is very powerful and has been sensed by people from before the beginning of time.

Solar storms may increase anxiety levels that many people feel, which are usually unexplained and indirectly related to anything going on in our personal lives. Highly sensitive empaths and psychics often feel the effects coming as the solar storms occur but then take usually two days to hit the earthy. This is true in my experience.

Our intuitions and psychic abilities are heightened and we are far more attuned to the collective energy during this time.

Research found that geomagnetic storms can have a huge effect on our emotional, mental, spiritual, and physical health. Peaks in increased anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, fatigue, and nervousness are known to coincide with solar activity.

There mayy be more geomagnetic storms taking place, as is normally the case close to the equinox.

During solar galactic disturbances, many people notice physical symptoms occurring, which may be in the form of body aches and pains, headaches, throat issues, flu-like symptoms, ears ringing, dizziness, and generally feeling as though the body, mind, and spirit are out of sync.

Some non-physical signs are vivid and realistic dreams and nightmares, regular synchronicities, déjà vu and irregular sleep patterns. We might also experience unexplained, moodiness, emotional highs and lows, irrational fear, and time appearing to go too slow or too fast. This can be alarming at first, but it is simply due to the speed at which some people believe we are awakening, leaving us feeling out of synch out of sorts and temporarily unaligned as our physical and spiritual bodies take time to readjust.

As a human being, when we look around at the state of the world we live in and can’t help but feel angry, disappointed, disillusioned, and saddened by what we see. It is challenging to stay the course of a spiritual path with optimism hope and faith and actions, knowing there is so much suffering. This is what the Buddha taught in the 6th Century BC,

The hardest part is that we can see how it is possible to create more peaceful world but the current corruption of Government and Corporate ownership by the .0001% created and sustains poverty, abuse, war, homelessness, and fear—despite having peaceful solutions and enough resources to change it.

ALONG with the synchronicity of this powerful CME is the SUN NEPTUNE conjunction March 13 at 7:43 am EDT this greatly amps up the ability to feel our oneness and to keep visualisation of world peace and harmony and when times are difficult to remember that things can change for the better at any time and together we can and will overcome any difficulties that arise.

Other signs and symptoms related to consciousness expansion and Mutations from the sun. Visions, premonitions, and the ability to predict future events, or knowing instantly when there is great unrest, whether with a loved one, or somewhere in the world. Being able to have deep insights, Noticing repeated number sequences.

SEEING 11:11 is about remembering who you are and why you are here. Created by SOLAR on January 11, 1991, I participated in this first world wide co-ordinated meditation

Reoccurring dreams, realistic dreams, lucid dreams, and the ability to astral travel heightened more by Jupiter in PISCES this year until May 10 then end of year again. Understanding that thoughts create our reality, and the ability to manifest, Disrupted sleep, and waking at the same time every night, usually between 2:00 to 4:00 a.m.Periods of extreme fatigue and exhaustion.Pressure at the crown chakra and tension headachesSudden waves of extreme heat or cold flushing through the bodyLosing things, forgetfulness, memory loss,

An increased love and appreciation for nature and animals.Feeling a profound connection to all living beings, spiritual expansion.

No longer needing to force anything, allowing what flows to flow freely and letting what doesn’t flow fall away. A desire to purge, detox and declutter. Unconditional love. Loving and giving without expecting anything in return. Mindfullness and meditation helps us to Noticing patterns of behaviour and altering how we react and respond The desire to find our soul purpose and to serve by helping create a healthier, more compassionate world for all living beings to harmoniously co-exist in.Connecting with those known as a “soul group” or “soul family.”

“During intensive energy shifts, it is highly recommended to regularly cleanse our energy field at the beginning and end of each day by meditating, taking saltwater baths, avoiding caffeine and alcohol, reducing the amount of time spent on technology, staying away from environments that feel toxic and draining, and when possible, spending periods of time alone.”

Alex Myles was the originator of this post on FAcebook/Meta. I have added and subtracted the usual spiritual attributes of self knowledge, self awareness,self acceptance that i was taught in the early 1990’s by my shamanic teacher.

Disclaimer: The above symptoms are commonly noted during geomagnetic storms; however, there may be other medical-related causes, so if you have concerns please also seek the advice of a medical professional.

Sage Wisdom season, Sagittarius time

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

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 consciousness 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.

Thursday is the day of Jupiter, Thor’s Day in Nordic Myth. Jupiter is Thor, Yahweh, Zeus, the Thunderbird all thunder and lightning Gods. 

“Hallelujah, come on get Happy.” – says Jupiter. This only happens on average every 12 years so start enjoying it already.

the Color Purple is Jupiter’s color, His metal is Tin.

Stones: Lapiz Lazuli, Smoky Topaz, Turquoise, Tourmaline, goldstone

OILS: Cinnamon, clove, Frankincense, Laurel, Myrhh,

HERBS: Sage, Anise,Hysopp, Juniper,Lamb’s Ears, Licorice root, Linden, Lobelia, Magnolia, Milk Thistle, Mint, Mullein, Wormwood, Nutmeg, Oak trees,Olive Trees, Pau D’Arco, Pecans, peppermint,

The 9th sign is ruled by the Big winded planet JUPITER aka  Zeus in Greek mythology/ JOVE in Roman and the root of the word jovial meaning good-humoured.

Jupiter is also a sign of faith and religion. Many bible thumpers and preachers are strongly Sagittarius. Also the sign of mystics and philosophers. Pursuing mystical meaning and wondering in awe at the stars is very Sage. 

Jupiter rules international trade and airplanes. There may be an increase in plane accidents and hijacking of planes. Although Trump has put sanctions and taxes on foreign trade the rest of the world will be trading more enthusiastically with each other.

MERCURY THE MESSENGER AND GOVERNOR OF OUR MINDS our consciousness, intellect, our communications and ideas enters SAGITTARIUS ON Nov. 24 until December 13 amping up the Saggy vibes.

Check out where Sagittarius is in your Natal Chart to see how the SUN travelling through the 9th sign and Jupiter rule will benefit you.

The downside of Jupiter: weight gain on the hips and thighs. Too much of a good thing is not good. Too much honest, too naive, too trusting, too klutzy, too easy going, taking people and things for granted, Too earnest, too judgemental, exaggerating things too much, too hypocritical, too much procrastinating, promising more than you can deliver. 

The GODDESS of SAGITTARIUS is DIANA the Huntress. To the Greeks, she was Artemis, the Goddess of the hunt. She was always seen hunting in the woods with her dogs and she is also the archetype in Women Who Run With The Wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estes. 

Sag. is the most mature of the three Fire signs and the root of the word SAGE. Sagittarius’s symbol is the Centaur,  half horse,-half-human. It is a wild instinctive sign needing space to run free. Sagittarius is an active, mutable adaptable sign. 

in the Tarot Sagittarius is symbolized by the #14 Card Temperance. In the Thoth Tarot, this is known as ART/ Alchemy or ‘the Sacred Marriage” card. In the Court Cards Sag is the King or Knight of Wands.

 Tarot Trump #14  Temperance is 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.

Sagittarius is the sign of gypsies. So get out your boho gypsy attire, your tribal drums, tambourines and exotic instruments. Belly dancing and ululating, is recommended as well as “exotic” world music, Indian, Egyptian, South American, Spanish etc. and drumming.

Colors- Jupiter is Royal Purple and Red for fire for candles and fabrics

Chinese equivalent to Sagittarius is the Rat.

Sedona, Arizona, Imagined landscapes of Max Ernst

Sedona Arizona, Vortex red rocks,Tara Greene

Sedona, Arizona, Tara Greene October 2019 Photo by Iala Jaggs

One of my favourite artists is surrealist Max Ernst. Max Ernst lived in Sedona Arizona in the 1940’s after dreaming of its surreal red rock landscape since he was a boy in Germany. Sedona called me to live there too. It is my spiritual home. I have always loved art. I told my mother when I was nine years old that I was going to be an artist. I loved to draw and write poems, I was taking dance lessons all the time since I was five years old. I sang and did pantomime shows.

I knew that being an artist gave me a license to be free.  I went to a Technical high school to major in Art. It was very rigorous, all afternoon was life drawing, photography, commercial arts, ceramics, interior design, marketing, we had to go to the Museum every weekend and paint from one of the galleries in a realist style. We were taught egg tempera, charcoal and a whole host of techniques. 

I studied art history since grade 10 and loved it and had an amazing art history teacher who I will never forget Mr. Walmsley. He taught world art history in chronological order. So we knew what was going on in Chinese, Indian and other cultures at the same time.

It was in a Grade 11 Art History class when I first saw the photograph of the bare-breasted, wasp-waisted, Cretan Snake holding Goddess and it smacked my consciousness awake. I remembered her. That was the beginning of my first consciousness awakening to the past life memories of being a High Priestess. I’d been dreaming of being a Sacred Tantric Priestess almost every night since I was five years old. I had no idea consciously what those intense dreams were all about I was just a kid in this life. 

Jump to February 1986 my ex-husband and I had been wanting to travel since we first got married. I wanted to go to Bali since 1979 but he thought it would be too weird. A friend mentioned Sedona Arizona to me and the Bell rang literally and said you have to move there.  He said OMG that’s the place my fave artist Max Ernst lived there. I have always been a fan of surrealism. Dali was my fave artist. I knew of Max Ernst but didn’t know he and his artist wife Dorothy Tanning moved there in the ’40s.  We arrived in Sedona for the first time on Spring Equinox in 1987 with our son Elijah who was three at the time. We began searching for Max Ernst’s house. We talked to many older folks who said yes they knew of him or had heard of him. The most we could find was that his house was on Brewer Road which you can see in the photographs of him with his famous Capricorn sculpture.

I also found out that Aleister Crowley’s assistant Israel Regardie had been living in Sedona in 1987 with the rumoured original Lady Frieda Harris paintings of the Thoth Tarot too. The one which I later chose as my first tarot deck to learn from. The plot thickens.

If you don’t know of Max Ernst art he was a famous surrealist artist whose vision was very unique and instantly identifiable. He unknowingly been dreaming of Sedona’s landscapes in war-torn Germany since he was young. After escaping the Nazis and made it to America with the help of Peggy Guggenheim who he briefly married. Max and his wife, artist Dorothy Tanning were driving across the U.S. and they found Sedona off the beaten path. Max recognized its sacred red rock and surrealist landscapes from his dreams and they moved there. If you know Sedona there was the “Y” intersection and one store the Sedona Market at that intersection, a post office, and a couple of restaurants in those days.  Four hundred people lived in Sedona in the 40’s. Max is a fantastic artist who never changed his principles. He invented a number of techniques. 

ASTROLOGY

Ernst was an Aries born April 2, 1891 in Bruhl Germany at 10:30 am.

His Moon is in CAPRICORN right on his Descendant and he built the famous Capricorn sculpture in Sedona probably influenced by that. 

He had a very creative Venus Jupiter in Pisces conjunction in his 9th house of foreigners, women, arts, spirituality, dreaming. He was married four times to women of different nationalities. This is a bountifully creative and protected lucky aspect

Sun in Airs in his 10th house of worldly fame with Mercury too. 

He had an earthy sensual Mars in Taurus and a Neptune Pluto conjunction in Gemini. With Pluto exactly on his North Node. Max was a very old soul who knew what his destiny was to communicate from his soul. He had a dual nature and his mind was very fresh inventive and open. He had the gift of soul communication. With Saturn in Virgo he was a hard-working, simple, perfectionist and quite modest.  Uranus at 0 Scorpio trines Venus gave him the gift of being totally unique as an artist. His ideas were ahead of his times, Max was unconventional to his core. He was a true Bohemian. His work is truly fascinating and inspiring.

I am missing Sedona even though I speak to my friends there every day. I cant wait to go back and stay for awhile and lead ceremonies again.
