600 year evolution of Tarot Card art

The Radical, 600-Year Evolution of Tarot Card Art

Read some of the article here or read the entire article on its original website. https://www.artsy.net/article/artsy-editorial-radical-600-year-evolution-tarot-card-art

What would Antoine Court de Gébelin think of the Happy Squirrel?

De Gébelin was a Protestant minister born in the 18th century. He authored the multi-volume tome Le Monde primitif, which insisted that the tarot deck contained secrets of the ancient Egyptians, whose priests had distilled their occult wisdom into the cards’ illustrations, imbuing them with great mystical power. Before that point, tarot was primarily a card game—meant for fun, not prophecy.

It was a bold and somewhat absurd assertion, given that de Gébelin could not read Egyptian hieroglyphics (no one could at the time, since they weren’t deciphered until the 19th century). Despite a total lack of historical evidence to back his claim, the theory stuck: Tarot decks, once a novelty, became popular tools for divination after the publication of de Gébelin’s book.

Which brings us back to the Happy Squirrel, a relatively recent addition to the tarot’s Major Arcana, and one whose provenance is less hazy: it originated on season six of The Simpsons. Lisa visits a fortune teller who is unconcerned when Lisa picks Death, but gasps in horror when the next card she draws is the Happy Squirrel. (When Lisa asks if the fuzzy rodent is a bad sign, the fortune teller demurs, saying that “the cards are vague and mysterious.”) Although it began as a cartoon joke, the Happy Squirrel card has made its way into over a dozen commercially available tarot decks.

So what would de Gébelin’s reaction be? The answer depends on whether tarot is a collection of timeless, mystical wisdom—or a flexible framework that has endured by changing with the times. Although tarot imagery employs supposedly universal archetypes, new decks are constantly being invented, and old decks altered. The art of tarot cards can never fully transcend its milieu. Which begs a second question: How do the cards’ art and design relate to the social changes, technological advances, and aesthetic sensibilities of their particular eras?

A Wealthy Family’s Trick-Taking Game

Despite their aura of mystery, medieval tarot cards were not used for divination, and were probably not created by ancient Egyptian magicians. The earliest surviving tarot decks—now preserved in various museum collections—are Italian, and were commissioned by wealthy patrons, the same way one might have hired an artist to paint a portrait or illuminated prayerbook.

The Visconti-Sforza Tarot is a collection of decks, none complete, commissioned by the Visconti and Sforza families from the workshop of Milanese court painter Bonifacio Bembo. Cards such as Death, who rides a horse and swings a giant scythe like a player in the world’s most high-stakes polo match, will seem familiar to contemporary enthusiasts. So will the Pope, who sits on a golden throne; and the Lovers, who hold hands beneath a string of heraldic flags. Rather than looking to these cards for mystic guidance, the Visconti and Sforza families would have used them to play a trick-taking card game similar to modern-day Bridge. (Although it’s unlikely—given the good condition of the decks—that they were ever handled with much frequency).

The cards each have intricately tooled gold backgrounds that glow like the luxury items that they were. Bembo is believed to have included portraits of the families in many of the cards, as well as adding the Visconti family motto here and there for good measure. Akin to the work of Fra Angelico and other early-Renaissance artists, the cards are opulent but pictorially flat, although the bodies appear in naturalistic perspective and their clothing billows around them, suggesting volume and form.

The 18th-Century Conver Classic

  • Nicolas Conver, Tarot card from Tarot de Marseille, ca. 1760. Via Wikimedia Commons.

Produced in 1760, French engraver Nicolas Conver’s deck of delicate woodcuts, the Tarot de Marseille, is the template on which many contemporary decks are based. Like the Visconti-Sforza Tarot, the deck’s design likely originated in 15th-century Italy before traveling north to France. It’s a favorite of many tarot enthusiasts, most notably the cult film director Alejandro Jodorowsky, who designed his own deck based on the style. While the Conver deck wasn’t the first to be called the Tarot de Marseille, it’s highly prized by collectors for its delicate color palette of sky blues and minty greens. The graphic black outlines and blunt shading of the prints give the cards a simple and rough-hewn appearance, which adds to the ambience of ancient wisdom. The popularity of the tarot grew due to advances in printing technology and via the writings of 19th-century French occultists such as Éliphas Lévi and Etteilla, which popularized the use of tarot as a method of fortune-telling and assigned additional divinatory meaning to the cards.

The New Mystics

  • Pamela Colman Smith, Queen of Cups, c. 1937. Courtesy of the Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library at Yale University.

The Rider-Waite Smith deck, which debuted in 1909, remains the most recognizable and popular today. Designed by artist Pamela Colman Smith under the direction of the mystic A.E. Waite, it was the first to be mass-produced in English, and was intended for divination rather than gameplay. Smith and Waite were both active members of the Order of the Golden Dawn, a secretive organization devoted to the exploration of the paranormal and occult (allegedly Bram Stoker, Aleister Crowley, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle were also members).

In addition to Smith’s occult bonafides, she was also an accomplished artist, championed by Alfred Stieglitz, who collected her work and showed it at his gallery. Smith created fully-realized illustrations of all 78 cards that made the deck a treasure-trove for cartomancers, who now had a much richer store of images to work with. (Previously, only the 22 Major Arcana cards such as the Fool, the Magician, and the Lovers had been elaborately illustrated—traditionally, the Minor Arcana cards, which are roughly analogous to the suits in a deck of modern playing cards, were not.) The Major Arcana were based on the Tarot de Marseille drawings, but rendered in an illustrative Art Nouveau style rich with patterns. Even the Fool looks debonaire; he carelessly approaches the cliff, a feather in his cap and a blooming rose in his elegant fingers, wearing a floral tunic that looks straight out of William Morris’s workshop.

An Occultist’s Pure Geometry

  • Frida Harris, tarot card from The Thoth deck. Photo by @cugeltje, via Instagram.

The Thoth deck, named for the Ibis-faced Egyptian god more commonly known as Horus, was painted by the artist Frieda Harris based on direction from the infamous occultist-about-town Aleister Crowley. Completed in the early 1940s, but not widely available until 1969, it features Art Decoborders resembling the pattern of a butterfly wing.

The deck is an aesthetic departure from the Rider-Waite’s homey Arts and Crafts aesthetic. Shaped by Harris’s interest in pure geometry, the cards are reminiscent of the work of Swedish painter Hilma af Klint (a visionary artist who shared Harris’s interest in spiritualism and the writings of Austrian philosopher Rudolf Steiner, both popular subjects of study among the middle and upper classes in the early 20th century). Harris’s shaded orbs and compass-inscribed curves that fill the background of each card bear more than a passing resemblance to Klint’s highly-saturated geometries. Klint, considered by some to be Europe’s first abstract painter, believed that her luminous compositions were the created under the influence of spirits. (The same could easily be said of Harris because she was taking direction from Crowley, who was believed to be a medium, able to channel ancient and magical forces.)

It’s no coincidence that Klint’s paintings and Harris’s Thoth illustrations were shown in the same pavilion at the 2013 Venice Biennale, which was intended to amplify voices that had previously been excluded and “cover 100 years of dreams and visions,” according to curator Massimiliano Gioni.

Sex & Self-Help, ’70s Style

  • Bill Greer and Lloyd Morgan, card from Morgan-Greer Tarot, 1979.
  • Bill Greer and Lloyd Morgan, card from Morgan-Greer Tarot, 1979.

Created by the artist Bill Greer under the direction of Lloyd Morgan, the Morgan-Greer deck is, like the 1970s themselves, both opulent and optimistic. The Magician sports a mustache that would make Tom Selleck blush, and the naked and embracing Lovers would fit right in with the hirsute and curvaceous illustrations in the original 1972 edition of The Joy of Sex.

The ‘70s enthusiasm for all things New Age created a renewed interest in tarot as a tool for self-discovery, and the Morgan Greer deck was there to greet it. The cards’ colors are lush and the lines are fluid. Greer chose to crop his figures tightly and removed the borders, allowing the illustrations to extend to the edges. The effect is fresh and personal. Formally, the Morgan-Greer illustrations have more in common with Jefferson Starship’s Spitfire (1976) album cover than with contemporary painting of the same period—the pendulum had swung away from figuration and would take a few years longer to swing back—but it’s possible to find a resonance between this deck’s art and a work like Judy Chicago’s Dinner Party (1979), with its powerful goddess and blooming flowers. Greer’s strong women and frank sexuality make the deck very much of its time.

Mercury, Grand Earth Trine Tarot and Astrology,Tara Greene

Its’a MERCURIAL day on Mercury’s day, Wednesday. In French, Mercredi. 
Mercury is the fleet-footed messenger of the Gods also the closest and fastest moving planet to the Sun.
Mercury trines URANUS
the higher octave of Mercury in the wee hours of July 27. Expect some wild dreams and many light bulbs to go off in your dreams! These two planets are the rulers of CHAOS, change, freedom, revolution, brilliant ideas and new technologies.
You may be restless, wired and too energized to sleep. Uranus is electrical energy. Keep your mind open, Mercury is in LEO and is connected to your HEART CHAKRA. Listen to your heart and allow new strategies in which can help you to approach anything where you feel stuck.
Mercury inconjuncts CHIRON the SHAMANIC HEALER in PISCES
There is a disconnect between the Mercury in LEO ego and the deeper intuitive knowing that your psyche contains. Take some time to sit with and feel into your own intuition, your cellular consciousness, your sleeping dreams and waking dreams for the answers to all of this chaos that is going on in the world around us. I certainly feel overwhelmed by it all.  STRONG BOUNDARIES are needed. That is one of the ego’s most positive roles, to define the  “I.”  At this time of the great polarization of ” I am not you.”  Chiron in PISCES begs to differ and says “
” I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together. 
See how they run like pigs from a gun, see how they fly.
I’m crying.
Sitting on a cornflake,waiting for the van to come.
Corporation Tee-shirt, stupid bloody Tuesday.” -John Lennon I am The Walrus 1967
The Mood is certainly obstinate and stubborn  as the TAURUS MOON inconjuncts SATURN in SAGITTARIUS and later Moon squares Venus in LEO .
This translates as: Difficult issues with authority figures, politics, pissed off with women leaders. And can make things difficult in personal up close relationships. Be aware of where you are being too pushy, demanding and stubborn. Reigning in that behaviour will get you what you really want. Try it. 
INSPIRATIONAL TAROT CARD OF THE DAY 
3 of Pentacles, Tarot card reader Tara Greene
3 of Pentacles by Cathy McClelland. 3 of disks/earth
This card illustrated the Grand Earth Trine energy. I love the three turtles for the 3 of Pentacles. It is very magical earth trine symbol.  
TAURUS MOON trines Pluto in CAPRICORN and JUPITER in VIRGO @ 21+degrees
This is an excellent day to get down to really practical details. Money and investments, creating with your hands, getting down and dirty literally, being in Nature, fact checking expenses, setting long-term education and travel goals. A good  day to ask for a raise, get a promotion and start a new diet or health regime.  All earth signs benefit.

LEO NEW MOON ,heart healing prayers, Tara Greene at your psychic service

OMG  yes OMG

The MARS SATURN smash up in late Libra felt like OMG!!!

I know that in my life everything that goes on in the outer world planetary wise affects me in 3D big time,

YOU CAN”T MISS IT!  Are you like that too?

Saturn is the father, endings,cold  hard reality check.

I just took action { Mars} on finalized the wording on my father’s {Saturn} headstone { Saturn ruled} which will be unveiled soon..

You can’t get much more literal than that!

Saturn in Libra- SAturn is the LAW The karmic balance, Mars- aggression.

Karma Aggression- as in

Those horrible shootings of the protesters in South Africa in cold blood,

Putin giving PUSSY RIOT – 2 years in a detention camp! for singing dancing and praying for Putin to be ousted.

Have you ever been involved with someone who is trying to scam you so obviously? Threatening you? It feels like that to me.

SATURN the Cosmic Cop

And if you havent watched your taxes and such then the cosmic cop is probably giving you Mars heat.

and VENUS/ PLUTO opposition, the SOUL MATE tug of war. 

My husband and I were arguing as we are feeling incredibly pressured with all this. Although we aren’t exactly affected by the conjunction, it is a bit past my VENUS /NEPTUNE and past squaring his VENUS.

 BUT TOMORROW IS ANOTHER DAY

Aug 16-17 The 25th anniversary of the Harmonic Convergence.

NEW MOON in LEO is  HEART HEALING TIME!

I was late posting this because it was my 16th Wedding Anniversary.

So LEO NEW MOON energy holds till the next FULL MOON

Did you complete the 10 day cleanse?

On the New Moon and the effects last for three days after if you are doing ritual intention magic. NEW MOON energy holds until the first sliver of the moon appears.

 YOU  GOTTA  HAVE HEART

which was a song from the musical Damn Yankees and song link below

LEO RULES THE HEART 

New Moon at 25 degrees Leo is close to the position of fixed star

REGULUS = ARCHANGEL RAPHAEL

{newly moved from LEO into VIRGO BTW- another article coming on that one}

Archangel RAPHAEL’s ray is emerald green, the HEART CHAKRA COLOR

MEDITATION for healing the heart with Archangel Raphael

World's largest emerald

Imagine the archangel Raphael 

All you gotta do is call and by sacred law the angels must answer all calls for help.. and you are protected. TRUST

Breathe and Ground first

Take some deep slow breaths in through your nose, hold for a second, and out your mouth. Do this for a few minutes until you start to let go.

We want to empty the body of resistance, pain, negative energy,so begin to imagine that your body is emptying out. Like water being emptied from a bottle.. you need to be receptive, you need to have your heart open.

See Archangel Raphael above your head, feel his DIVINE energy enter your heart.

Sense  the deep rich green heart color of  DIVINE LOVE filling you up filling your heart radiating from your heart, healing your heart.

Allow the emerald green divine love ray fill you and heal you completely.

If you or someone you know is ill, send this healing heart ray to them and see them healed whole shining with vitality and health. As a divine observer your consciousness is like an emerald-green laser ray. This is proven to work. Stay in the receiving  healing ray for as long as you wish and send it simultaneously to the entire earth!

NEPTUNE is close to CHIRON the wounded healer and they are tied into the Leo New Moon energy in opposition.

Courage is what LEo is about, ask for the courage to live from your Heart.

Courage to be YOU, That’s LEO Energy

Courage to protect the inner child

Willpower, leadership, strength all LEO energies.

In the Tarot the sign of LEO is called STRENGTH

11 Strength LEO THOTH TAROT Tara Greene

YOU can see the image of the LEO lion in the Thoth Tarot Trump #11

This is the main deck that I have been using for 20 years now.

I know it says LUST at the bottom of the card. The Thoth Tarot changed the usual imagery and number order.

The woman is riding the lion, usually she is shown dominating the lion by holding it’s jaws open. STRENGTH turned in to Lust is about LEO Passion,

Lust for Life- see song link below

So what is your passion? Where is your passion for life?

What does your heart say? What turns you on?

Whenever this card appears in a reading I do  for a client or myself

the bottom line is If it feels good do it, if not Don’t!

Are you feeling directionless, lost, that your heart is closed down, that  have lost your passion for life?

Revolutionary change. Advice on coping, love, the economy by psychic astrologer Tara Greene

I must say the energies are so tense right now. As a professional psychic I pick up on a lot of the world’s energies. Any sensitive psychic person would naturally do the same. R U Feeling confused? Should you stay or should you go? Bored with the same old same old?

This entire year that feeling most likely has something to do with the planet Uranus‘s energies. Uranus is the 1st “transpersonal” planet. The first to be discovered by modern technology. Uranus takes approximately 84 years to make one complete cycle. Uranus was in early Aries in 1927 just before the Great Depression. Women’s Liberation had just begun as woman won the vote in 1920 in America. Things were quite liberated, those was very high, loose times,breaking from older Victorian constrictions, there was big spending, new inventions, talking pictures, wild dancing, musicals.

We are returning to a higher octave of that last cycle now.  Uranus rules technology, inventions, revolution,freedom, individuality, collective consciousness, Higher consciousness, the Internet. Uranus’ energy is electric. It’s like a lightning bolt,akin to kundalini energy. We are all supposed to get a Bigger Higher picture that we are all unified and all one.

Uranus says stop being so anal.

A bad pun but it is true. Uranus energy liberates us from old restrictions.

We can certainly attest to the Uranian revolutionary energies in the news  all over the Arab world. Saudi women dare to drive!

Everyone has Uranus somewhere in their natal Western tropical chart and never mind the puns.. and in contact with other natal planets too. Uranus is the planet considered to rule the sign of Aquarius in modern astrology rulerships. 

 Uranus is associated with the symbol of THE STAR in the TAROT. # 17. The symbol shows the Goddess sometimes a God figure pouring down the waters of consciousness from the Heavens down onto the earth. Meditate on the image.

Uranus is now Retrograde at 2 degrees 55 of Aries and directly opposite Venus in Libra on Sept. 17. Uranus is a bolt out of the blue. Expect the unexpected in your relations and social situations.

Dont just think outside the box,

get rid of the box.

Venus of course rules women. But all things of beauty, the arts, socializing, romance, money, luxury. Need some change ups there? This opposition will make your love life hop!  Venus, now temporarily in Libra is bringing some temp. balance, some peacemaking but also indecision.

Cardinal Cross 2010-2012

Uranus in early cardinal signs squared by Pluto who just went direct today Sept 17 pressures the early degrees of all cardinal signs. Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. Pluto,although remoted as I call it, is still very powerful, the soul itself, The Shadow. We are deep into the Cardinal Cross aspect. Something’s gotta give. Resistance is futile.

Watch out for sudden outbursts that you don’t recognize as you. Do people seem to be acting rather out of character? Watch your money for Unexpected expenses. The economy will continue to be unstable. There’s cracks in the entire worldly financial and global corporate structures. Plutonian fascist government control is being seen in the light of day and the collective which Uranus also represents, Won’t take it anymore.

 Instability and changes in your income and assets will be the norm for everyone. So learn to ride the cosmic wave, Nothing ever has been very stable or certain, that was merely an illusion. We are waking up to reality which is multi-dimensional. Are you a particle or  a part of the wave?

 If you need sound guidance to gain some clarity and a breath of fresh air through Astrological advice for relationships or business, I am here to dance you through your Birth chart and guide you in a language you can easily understand.  Email me taragreene@sacredartscentre.com

WONDERLAND opens everywhere March 9 2011. Astrology updates by Tara Greene

WONDERLAND BEGINS, 4 real as WE COLLECTIVELY go down the RABBIT HOLE in the year of the rabbit ding! ding!

Major new Cycles begin March 9  End of the last cycle of the Mayan calendar begins

 UNITY CONSCUIOUSNESS,  + March11 Uranus enters Aries copyright by Tara Greene 

March is one heck of a busy month, we are set to boldly go where no one has travelled before, or not since 16 billions years or so with major long-term placements happening. Hold onto your hats and get ready to jump. And remember to bring some carrots will ya Doc? 

March 9 is the beginning of Universal underworld the “end” of the Mayan calendar

 The Mayan Calendar, like the God/dess is a circle whose center is everywhere and the circumference is nowhere.” To paraphrase a famous Greek. We are beginning the final wave of human consciousness today! The Mayan calendar, which is popularized as 2012, is not a calendar as we understand it. It is a sacred reckoning, a philosophical spiritual time line of evolution of consciousness in the Universe. The Mayan calendar.

 According to Carl Johan Calleman, a biologist who become a Mayan scholar, the ancient texts describing the birth of the universe, and includes 9 waves or underworlds that bring forth 9 levels of consciousness.These levels reflect an acceleration of time.

9 stages of Mayan consciousness

Mayan Pyramid Mayan calendar

The 1st level begins with the “big bang” or Big bubble” 16.4 billion B.C.

The 2nd wave begins 819,998,000 B.C. with the first stirrings of life

The 3rd wave began 41,000,000 years ago. Dinosaurs,

The 4th wave began 2,050,000 years ago. First human like beings.

The 5th wave began 102,000 years ago. Early civilizations, Lemuria, Atlantis.

The 6th wave began 5,125 year ago, the age of Egypt’s reign, beginning of Judaism? Greek Golden age, Guttenberg, Renaissance,

The7th wave began in 1755, French & American revolution, Age of reason, science, Industrial revolution, atomic age,space age, feminism, INternet

The 8th wave began Jan 5 1999 beginning the present millennium, 9-11, 1st black U.S. president,

9th and final waves begin March 9 2011.

In each cycle time or consciousness runs 20 times faster than the previous one.

And the end of this huge 16 billion year evolutionary cycle ends Oct. 28 2011. 

Think about it as the dance of the 7 veils, with each veil dropped we achieve greater awareness, consciousness, enlightenment. 

In numerology Number 9 is the number of completion. In the Tarot it is symbolized by THE HERMIT. Buddhist believe there are 9 levels of consciousness, Dante wrote of 9 circles of hells,Classically 9 choirs of angels, etc. 

So today we enter the beginning of the final rush to UNITY consciousness, this is end the alpha & the Omega. We can see and feel time moving faster and faster information moves instantaneously. We are all interconnected and I had felt in the early 90;s that we had to invent the Internet so wed have a physical read 3D model of out actual telepathic concrescence to validate that for ourselves. Terrence McKenna wrote about what he labelled TIME WAY ZERO mixing the Mayan calendar with the Ancient Chinese oracle of the I Ching and correlating the hexagrams with the calendar creating a computer programme which “ended in Dec 21 2012 with total NOVELTY.

Terrence McKenna's I Ching Mayan prophecy system

Time wave zero- I ching and Mayan calendar coinciding

 

We are moving into light-speed transformation Now. The old system of consciousness till exists, but it will be transformed as each one of us allows the

Conscious ness to change us. We are all losing our religions as REM prophesied, It’s the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine.

 

Time Wave zero Baby Boomers - 2012

Time Wave Zero- wave/particle consciousness shifts

We will know longer know ourselves as egos isolated alone, alienated from each other, we will recognize out Oneness. Ekhart Tolle, Byron Katie, Oprah, etc.

we are becoming THE FOOL. The ought/ zero.

The Fool in the tarot is Zero. the beginning the Alpha, the  Soul, ZERO is abstract, the circle is eternal,

like God, the Mayan calendar. We are retruning to our original state of innocence, trust, Be like children said Jesus. we are returning to that innocent, state we are retrunign to our source. Oneness.

the circle, the stone circles of the druids, eternity, the great maw,the Galactic Center.

 

the fool innocence, trust, soul, eternity

The fool is Enlightened allready,

Things will never be the same. Be extremely mindful of every thought you think every feeling, every word and deed . It is time to be loosed from the veils of illusion and freed. 

People who have been working consciously on themselves, the Baby boomers who are now in late 60’s early 70’s like Bob Dylan, the Beatles,Ram Das, early technicians of the sacred, Stuart Brand, Stanislav Grof, and the Indigo children who were born since the 50;s have achieved veryhigh levels of non-ego awareness and are committed to the spiritually conscious way of life, for being spiritual metaphysical messengers. Working with their communities, developing new paradigms there are  so many I can’t list them all here.

Since the first official consciousness raising worldwide event the Harmonic convergence of Aug 16-17 1987 think about how far and how fast We’ve gotten to now.

 So be prepared for Quantum Leaps INTO worlds you may have only glimpsed and not even imagined yet.Expect miracle everyday and no-limitations. You will experience things you may have only sensed in dreams and even the totally unimagined, we are going Collectively down the rabbit hole in the year of the rabbit!!!!!  Alice in Wonderland re-imagined by Tim Burton in 2010 is a huge portend and an archetypal prophesier of the collective consciousness shifts upon us.  Facing the Jabberwocky dragon, no matter how small weak, ill fitted or prepared is what we al have to do. We are all Alice in the looking glass, needing to fight out fears, to become self- autonomous. I believe there is a movie called down the rabbit hole using Quantum Physics as the metaphor for this mirror world.

 Astrologically the planets are corresponding to the Mayan system somewhat.. 

Uranus the planet of Revolutionary Higher consciousness enters ARIES March 11

Beginning a brand new 84-year cycle Uranus has been at the 29 th degree of Pisces, the last critical degree in a whole karmic round Uranus’s revolutionary impulses and its square to the Galactic Center for most of 2011 is shown as the sudden revolutionary urge for freedom in Egypt, Tunisia Libya, Yemen etc. Uranus was in early aries during the Great Depression in 1929. 

Neptune the planet of Spirituality bliss, oneness, enters its’ home sign of Pisces 4/04/011 

When a planet is passing through its home sign it is at its most powerful, it’s just like you, at home!Uranus when it entered its ruling sign of Aquarius in 1995 is when the Internet really took off.Uranus has been transiting Pisces and Neptune has been transiting Aquarius for the last few years binging what’s called mutual reception.Enabling Uranian technology to make us all totally interconnected and conscious of each other’s words instantaneously allowing for revolutions to start from tweets etc.  Neptune will enture Pisces in 2011 and back into Aquarius Aug 6th it won’t finally enter Pisces until 2012

Neptune takes 164 years to orbit the sun. Neptune has been at the pint it was discovered at 25 degrees of Aquarius for most for 2010. Neptune was the first planet discovered by mathematical deduction. So for us earthlings we are having our 2nd birthday consciously of Neptune. Traditionally Jupiter was the ruler of Pisces. Jupiter is in Aries for most of 2011 indicating a new cycle in action from that spiritual dreamy space.

Dream work is going to become extremely popular; telepathy is going to start just happening everywhere. You will not be able to eat that hamburger anymore without sensing the poor animals life which has been so cruelly treated, used, killed, objectified, used so selfishly for greed.  Our ancestors would always thank any life it took because then the animal had sacrificed itself in order to come into a participation mystique a sacred communion with a human life.

So be prepared, as you may feel overwhelmed when all the false bridges between minds come toppling like a great string of dominoes.

There will be a lot of craziness too. As those egos will be naked, unsupported, outcast, ghosts, like cast off fashions, as fast as John Galliano was fired after being caught saying love Hitler, that’s the way it is going to be everywhere! So better get on your knees bous and start redeeming yourselves.

There will be no place to hide, no foxhole, no island. Only a pure and tender heart, and a clear conscience. 

Chiron, the wounded healer is in Pisces Feb 9 where it will stay for the next 8 years.

The only healing is through spiritual healing, compassion, forgiveness, and act as Jesus acted, as the Buddha taught, cast no stones, love thy neighbour. There won’t be an Armageddon, though lots of tyrants like old Gaddafi there will end up committing suicide as his tyrannical insane regime dies.

Smaller cycles: 

LOVE:  Venus in AQUARIUS March March 1st – March 26

Venus Goddess of love, values, money, arts, beauty In Airy revolutionary Aquarius open sour hearts to humanitarian ideals, freedom, innovation, So out with that old stale stodgy relationship or reinvent it. 

ACTION: Mars is in Pisces from Feb 22- APRIL FOOL’S day

Mars in Pisces simmers the testosterone down, heights emotions, defences can go up to protect very tender underbellies, Mars is what we fight for, what we die for, where we are the most deluded, where we are most under the illusion of the macho- see Gaddafi Or Charlie Sheen’s meltdown from drugs, delusions, truth. Pisces is the last sign, on Bliss, oneness, karma; Mars in Pisces is defending the last stand And we can see the event in Libya being mirrored here now. 

The True North Node in Sagittarius March 3- 2012

A new  higher truth 1.5 year cycle of consciousness begins when the North Node of the Moon {The Dragon’s head or Rahu in Vedic Astrology} shows what the collective consciousness is open to. In Sagittarius it is all about expansion of truth, of higher learning of guidance from the Master Teachers in esoteric teachings Jupiter ruler of Sagittarius and of Pisces traditionally, is the home of the Master Teachers. We will collectively be seeking out highest truth, being honest, transparent.  In search of spiritual law sacred law not man made law. From what I understand, the Mayan’s mythology believes that souls emanate from and return to Source.

Through the Galactic Centre, a huge black hole 23 million Light years away but clearly visible as a dark rift, a “cosmic vagina” at the Centre of our Milky Way Galaxy.

This space was and is seen as the birthplace. Doorway to birth and death for all of us. It is our home and destination. In other words it is attuning to the highest Source, it is Feminine in Nature. We are now 1.5 years from the famous Mayan Dec 21 2012 date. It is like the Hebrew Ain Soph Aur the unknowable God/dess head the  “darkness that is all Light.”

At Spring Equinox the North node aligns with the Galactic Center 27 degrees of Sagittarius tropical astrology. 

Almost anything can happen, anywhere anytime. Be at peace within yourself.

Meditate ont he true nature of the selfless Self. See you self everywhere.  You are the Beloved, we are evolving to this place whenwe can turn around and see OURSELF everywehere.

Well its been along  journey,16 Billion years,but really only a blink of an eye.

Are you a particle or are you a wave?

Now what?    

I leave you with the lyrics to Talking Heads David Byrne’s song

Time isn’t holding us,  time isn’t after us, Time isn’t holding us, time doesn’t hold you back

Time isn’t holding us, time isn’t after us, Time isn’t holding us,

Letting the days go by,

Same as it ever was, same as it ever was,

Same as it ever was, same as it ever was.
