MARS conjunct NORTH NODE in SCORPIO-my favourite Martian Astrology

 

Mars the RED PLANET is very much in the news and everyone’s consciousness these days – not just that hunk of exploring space junk sending awesome new earthscapes back to us earthlings, mapping and staking out Mars territory and securing it for future mining rights for Mr. Lakshmi and a select group of others.

As synchronicity would have it. The North Node of the Moon, now at 26 degrees + of Scorpio is conjuncting planet MARS now!

the two are rolling out the RED Carpet for SATURN who enters Scorpio Oct 5.

MArs My favourite martian

Mars exits stage left October 6 aiming much higher arrows in lighter but still fiery Sagittarius.

North Node symbolizes the collective highest spiritual goal. Mars connecting to that is helping us to take it higher.

So the symbol is be on RED ALERT! -take Scorpio to its highest intention. SCORPIO is intense SOUL HEALING,  it will encourage death to allow for rebirth.

IT IS THE PHOENIX rising from the fire.

SO Lets go of the old power games it’s ready to merge completely passionately, sexually/kundalini energy with all

 Mars and North Node in Scorpio and VENUS in LEO conjunct 2 archangels at its’ highest brings  DEATH to the OLD MALE COMPETITIVE WARRIOR  ARCHETYPE  and allows the New MALE to be born.

The young,21 years old, red haired Canadian/English singer Ed SHEERAN is a prime example-s ee link to his song below

MARS rules- men, the military- Notice some fierce warmongering going on to try to attack Iran, China and Japan? etc. etc.

MARS rules- explosions, dangerous anything, knives, weapons, fire,

atomic energy, bombs, terrorism, heat, volcanoes, death,wildfires,

cutting, rape,new life force, domination, competition, skill,power, control, life or death struggles, fighting to the death,

ruthlessness, selfishness, anger, rage, blind passion.

AND VENUS is in LEO and has been SQUARING that Mars North Node combo for the battle of the Sexes! VENUS is in her GLORY it is HER YEAR, as she eclipsed the Sun in June.

Venus in Leo is big-hearted, the leader, and she is crossing the Fixed Star REGULUS – symbolizing the place in the heavens of the ARCHANGEL RAPHAEL which is also opposite Archangel GABRIEL- the announcing Angel now till Oct 5.

It’s short and sweet but perfectly depicts that WOMEN must battle to stay in control of their own destinies and SCORPIO rules REPRODUCTION -so fight like HELL for your hard won freedom, CAll on archangel RAPHAEL to help all of us.

MARS ruled ARIES countries such as -England, Denmark, Germany, Poland, Burgundy, Palestine, Syria and Japan

MARS ruled Scorpio countries-  Austria, IndoChina, Tibet, Borders of Caspian, Upper Egypt, North China, Burma

so expect this North Nodal Mars, Venus square aspect to trigger –

all and any of the above descriptions over the next few months.

Note: North Node will be in Scorpio from AUGUST 30 2012- February 18, 2014

IT”S PLUTONIC TIMES and MARTIAN times ahead.

 wear RED at all times-

the indigenous people and Chinese know it is protective.

RED Is the color of LIFE, BLOOD, SUCCESS.

In the West we’ve been bamboozled into thinking RED IS STOP!

De-condition yourselves please.

SCORPIO the most feared sign is where we are all taking up roost in Hades for the next 3 years so better get comfy down there.

SATURN Lord of REALITY and Karma is taking us on a tour to HELL.

It will be Obsessive, intense, totally high and totally low all in one.

We’re all goin’ down. SEX, secrets, death, rebirth, power, control, torture, money, the shadow…big power battles…

me and my shadow…. better get to love yours,,,

Depth psychology, soul psychology that’s where we are headed starting Friday October 5 2012.

ME I am so happy. I have A Scorpio Ascendant and my 12th house is Scorpio-ish.  I am at home with Scorpio, I am my unconscious,working in the diamond mines every night and day.

Where is SCORPIO in your chart? what house and which aspects does it make?

Saturn the reality checker is passing through that area of your life.

SCORPIO is black, dark, negrido in psychology, hidden, shameful,sado-masochism, birth pains, death rattles, ancestors, graveyards, charnel grounds, blood spilled in war, demons, it is like KALI.

It is time to be a brave hermit, call upon the Hermit to light  your night lite forf the soul journey, the night-sea , the dark night of the soul time..

Armageddon…we’re on a highway to HEll..

and I feel fine….

ED SHEERAN – “Small Bump”

an example of the new male archetype, sensitive, caring, emotionally open, nurturing,honest. This song is truly a landmark, and makes me cry.

NOT an anthem for Pro-LIFEERS at all!

Saturn Re-loaded “critical degree” times by Tara Greene Astrologer Tarot Psychic spiritual coach

SATURN aka the cosmic cop is RETROGRADE @ 29 degrees, “slowly he turned step by step inch by inch…”

the grim reaper

the grim reaper Saturn

of Libra. The very last and Critical degree in the sign of Relationships, Balance, Karma,the Arts, the judicial system, beauty, the sign of marriage and relationships. All things in relationship to each other, which is in essence ALL THAT IS are being weighed in the Egyptian Great Goddess Maat’s scales of Justice. All relationship issues especially marriage are being revamped, repealed, revealed, re-enacted, renewed, renovated, reinvigorated, resting,reset, reviewed. The cosmic Doctor Saturn is giving us all a big prescription, a time for tonic.  A general Rx time as this is the Retrograde glyph.

Interesting that as Saturn went Retrograde and  The California upholding of  Gay marriages law was reinstated.

NOTE on your calendars that  the “critical weighing time” lasts from  Feb 7 until June 25th!

Saturn, also known as THE GRIM REAPER will bring endings for many relationships that aren’t in balance on all levels to fold during this time period. Literal ones, his and hers ones and political alliances, Laws will be repealed, government imbalances will be brought under scrutiny, tax overhauls, arts funding, redressing what is fair and what isn’t on many levels. Saturn is considered to be ‘exalted” in Libra which means it expresses itself  in the most fair way as Saturn is always hard, harsh, Father Time.

So Saturn is giving us a last chance to redress all the imbalances with ALL OUR RELATIONS over these many months since Saturn entered Libra waay back in October  29, 2009 {with a small Retro back to Virgo} then straight ahead in Libra since July 21, 2010-  read more about Saturn’s escapades in my entire article here  http://taratarot.com/id34.html

The REALLY critical parts are Feb 7 – March 3rd when Saturn is standing almost still at that infamous 29th degree, grinding the message in as it were. Expect things to be harsh, tough, leaden,heavy, weighty, difficult, slow.  So a lot of literally hanging in the balance, waiting with bated breath, waiting for the shoe to drop, so quiet you could hear a pin drop kind of thing.

Then Saturn will revisit that 29th degree from September 27-October 5th when Saturn then enters SCORPIO! And a new era begins.

A VERY TOUGH SATURN RETURN for those born 1982-83

BORN on January 1982,September 82-November 1982; then May 1983-Aaugust 83 ? This will be a very tough Saturnine REALITY CHECK! a Whopper of a hard ‘n heavy one for your 1st Saturn Return for all of you kids born with Saturn and Pluto in late Libra. Life isn’t easy, no bed of roses, you may have thought your were ENTITLED, BESPOKE etc. unh unh unh.

Sorry Kids, I also have a son born in June of 1983. I understand but it is time to wake up and smell the coffee,the writing on the wall etc.

Also if you are A BABY BOOMER ? Born November 1952-May 1953, and then August 1953-October 1953

Your 2nd Saturn return will also be pretty harsh. Health issues,depression, arthritis, divorce will all be prevalent.

Although you also will have Neptune at the 22 degree point and Saturn will be conjunct your Natal Neptune planet of spirituality, illusion, delusion, addictions, bliss, oneness, yoga, ashrams and not to mention SOUL MATES. This means manifesting your highest dreams, letting go of material reality and following the higher spiritual path of someone who renounces material and worldly things.  Many of the boomers will choose to opt for simplification and the pure life. And this will affect those born up until December of 1955 who have Neptune at 29 degrees.

What falls apart, down, into place, has worn out its welcome, will take mucho time to integrate back into place.

Who gets hit the hardest?

All late Librans of course born between Oct 15-22nd.  Saturn goes back to 22 degrees of Libra. But also if you are born late in ARIES also 15 -22nd of March. CANCER  July 15-22 and CAPRICORN, born Jan 15- 22 especially Capricorn as Saturn is your planetary ruler, head honcho, first in command. 

If you know your natal chart check for where all the late degrees of these cardinal signs -22-29 degrees are in your chart to see where you will be tested. I can help guide you out of the murky depths.  taragreene@sacredartscentre.com

 YOU WILL  BE TESTED. WE WILL  ALL  BE TESTED.

Think of it like this, the modern metaphor for Saturn Retrograde is just like going through Security at the airport. You have to wait in line for aeons, you have to take off your shoes,surrender your belongings, maybe get searched, patted down, invaded, x-rayed, etc. If you don’t past muster with the powers that be, you may be tasered, and hauled off for interrogation on suspicion of being a terrorist {substitute wall street occupier, political activist, revolutionary.}

But, there are other factors at work now like higher consciousness PLUS the influences of the infamous Uranus, planet of Revolution in early Aries squaring Pluto now one of the major hallmarks of 2012. Remember that Saturn is the Ancient ruler of Aquarius, until that  planet was discovered in 1781 by Hershel, the symbol looks like an H.

Vedic/India Astrologers only use the 7 traditional “planets” so Saturn does rule revolutionary Aquarius to them. So this brings in added meaning. Saturn Retrograde then will take us back over the revolutionary track that was laid over a year ago and was never completed to the people’s will and the peole will triumph and will be victorious in Syria, and also in Iran.  I will talk about Iran’s astrology in the next article. Modern Iran was founded Feb 1,  1979 making it a,what else? an Aquarian country. Still needing the people’s revolution.

LIBRAN COUNTRIES

ARGENTINA  AUSTRIA  CHINA  EGYPT  JAPAN  SIBERIA  TIBET  BELGIUM  BOTSWANA  FIJI  NIGERIA  UGANDA

How many of these are in the news these days?  China’s economy will go south of the border. TIBET will demand freedom from China, Siberia, feeling its enormous raw materials wealth will also seek to break from China. Belgium is the seat of  The EU in much trouble these days, and will see much more tightening of their belts.

MEDITATION TOOL

As Mars is also Retrograde in Virgo, the work sign during this time period Jan 24- April 14 things will feel decidedly S_L_O_W  as 

molasses

EARLY MERCURY RETROGRADE ALERT March 12 -April 4 

From 6 degrees Aries back to 23 degrees Pisces on April 4 where it turns DIRECT. But it will take until  April 23 till it’s past point of Retrogradation an dits clear communications again.

So take this very precious rare time, it’s a real PEARL, a  gift, I call it FAT TIME, when time dilates and slows down.

especially when time is going so fast, a rare treasure to review, reset new intentions, relax, patience is a virtue now.

Meditate on where you’ve been, who you were then, who was/still is in your life, what you’ve been doing, thinking about.

 What goals have you met? What have you learned? How have you changed?  since 2010.

How were you  anticipating 2012? Here you are!

It’s time to let go of all old habits, activities and action { MARS} old vendettas, hard habits, work and relationships both within and without that do not suit the new evolving higher consciousness and transparency that is being ushered in now.

Thar will be no fooling in relationships,to Mother Nature, in beauty,or injustice allowed after this time period. Saturn as Grim reaper will put an end to that sort of thing. We cannot evolve unless we face the truth, our inner truth and let die the old, outworn, patterns.

Just breathe. Follow the breath in and out naturally deeply slowly in through your nose into the belly out through your mouth. Say to yourself who is it who is breathing? over and over and over, Saturn brings discipline, routine, realness.

As you do this every day, you will go deeper and deeper into your Self.  Simple be aware of your ingrained old outworn karmic patterns of thought, the behaviors, the patriarchal lead weight of rules that you were indoctrinated with.

If you are in a relationship the criteria to ask is Do you each honor the other? Are you equals? Whats the balance point?

Simply ask your Higher Self, your Guardian Angels to come and oversee you, simply let go of all the excess weight you are carrying. Ideas, beliefs, emotional weight that isn’t yours, your children’s issues, your parents, the weight of history.

Do this every day, write down what you have learned at the end of each session. It’s basically a whole month of the 29th degree. Be your own interrogator, get to the truth, the truth will set you free.

The song for this Saturn Retro is LIVE AND LET DIE by Paul McCArtney

Dont be afraid of losing your relationship, you can’t lose what you don’t really have. If you can’t set your loved one free then it’s not love. It is possession, and fear. The famous psychologist Carl Jung said there are only two emotions, love and fear. they cannot co-exist.

The saying is Art is long and time is fleeting. But now Time is slow,and so is art during the Saturn Libra retrograde. Make art, make beauty, make love.Love yourself,

No time for pushing and fussing. Allow yourself to remember how to relax. Spend time in nature if you can, do yoga, cook wholesome slow cooked meals. Be sentimental.

VALENTINE’S DAY WILL BE HEAVY, OLD FASHIONED

Remember the good old days and recreate them. The more you go slow now the more you will be rewarded. It’s still winter in  the north,and in North America even though there isn’t any snow, be like the bear and hibernate, dream a lot, sleep a lot, think of Camelot.

Ultimately you will be freer than ever. This is the real serious necessary step and prep for 2012.

Blessing  your shedding. You are like the butterfly entering the coccon stage. It will be dark and you are feeling restricted, the unknown can be scary or exciting. Deep inside, your inner knowing senses that something bigger, brighter, more glorious and freeing will emerge as you ALLOW to die  your old habits so you may be reborn as a beautiful butterfly.


The Rapture,The Raptors,What the tweet! Cosmic Golden Spiritual messages by Tara Greene Psychic spiritual musings

Well Judgement Day and The Rapture may have not come yet and are still much in the news and on people’s  minds these days,  even though he got the timing wrong,but the symbolic archetypal image and the meaning of the rapture is all around us. Rapture or to be enraptured means to be uplifted or transfixed or transported by a lofty emotion.

I always know that the Cosmos is always sending us back messages if we are aware enough to see them. The enrgies have been a bit intense lately haven’t you noticed?

Rapture and Raptors are puns, homonyms.  R U ready for it?  

A real Toronto Raptor 

Toronto Raptors

Toronto Raptors rapture

I live in Toronto, I was born in Toronto. I’m not that into basketball.  Ok Ok I’ll get to the point.

Today May 31, the 2nd sunny day in a row in weeks here in Toronto. Its been the wettest month of May on record I think. We are lucky to be outside of the terrible tornadoes and flooding further south but am sad to see all the destruction in the U.S.  A dear friend of mine passed away suddenly May 26, at 59 years old. We’ve been BFF’s since we were 15 years old in grade 11. Even thought I didn’t see her that much we spoke on the phone regularly and i always felt her inside of me. I’ve known over the years that she had a compromised immune system, I knew she’d been experiencing bad health for a number of years, yet her death was sudden and unexpected. I’d spoken to her about 10 days ago. I felt very bereft of someone I’d shared so much of my life with, we were witnesses to each other, we validated each other and I am feeling very sad for the last few days. She was like a sister to me.

As an intuitive and as a psychic I really felt I was tracking her energy as she crossed over. I also enlisted the help of a Tibetan Buddhist Monk I know, and asked him to say prayers  for her, {even though she was raised Catholic, she wasn’t a practicing one}, to protect her and to help her leave the Wheel of Karma, to go into the Light. The energies around her felt heavy to me the first three days, it is difficult to pull away from the earth plane and the emotional and psychic love bonds and then the sadness of those you love who are feeling .

On the 4th day which was Monday the 30th I felt my friend Lynn’s presence speaking to me clearly and in her voice was the old tinkling upbeat, happy young woman I used to know. She said “Hi. Boy, you won’t believe how beautiful it is once you cross over and are out of the earth plane.” She said “Everything was shining, light, bright.” She still had a body but it was made of light,healthy, whole,happy and energized. Everything was available to her with just a thought, a whim. “I can see through everyone and sense everything they feel, no secrets.” she said.

She said she was so touched by everyone’s heartfelt emotions. It’s  surprising to find out just how much everyone does care for me now.- she said.”At first I almost couldn’t believe it” but she knows it’s true because she can read everyone’s minds and hearts.  I am very happy to hear this message as it greatly alleviates my sadness.

Messages from Spirit

Today Tuesday May 31 my husband and I are in our backyard. It’ sunny after 11;00 am. I look up and to the left of our house by the next street over is a very tall evergreen tree and at it’s very top is a huge “thing.” I say what the hell is that? My hubby thinks it’s a hawk. I say that’s the biggest hawk I’ve ever seen. It is brown with a white stomach and bit of brown lines on its’ breast. It has an eagle shaped head and huge bright yellow claws. A smaller black bird is flitting around it chirping at it.  It is the most magnificent bird I’ve ever seen. It is sunning itself and it is radiating a golden colour from its breast. Then it ups and flys off revealing a huge wingspan which is most definitely an eagles’ not a hawks and it is awesome like glittering gold. OMG our jaws have dropped. Then while we wait with bated breath to see if it’ll return, a brown head pops up from below where the bird was perched and it is obviously a female.

The huge brown golden eagle return and his mate flies off, I have my binoculars by now. We can see there is a huge nest built way up near the top of that tree. The golden eagle returns and so does his mate, and my husband and I are almost in tears, We are whooping it up, talking to that gorgeous creature. I am on my knees sending it prayers and thanks. I am enraptured by the Raptor. He chirrups and tweets very loudly.

Here’s a picture of the RAPTOR that gave me the RAPTURE

Raptor Rapture

Raptor Rapture

The messenger of SPIRIT

So if that isn’t a message and a blessing from the Cosmos i don’t know what is. I have looked it up and it seems like a Golden Eagle but these are quite rare in Toronto where I live. I am not an expert bird watcher, although I love birds. If anyone can identify this creature please do let me know. It’s not an osprey. I have seen bald eagles, it is definitely an eagle. Eagle is the Spirit itself, the Sun, the Light. I am overjoyed and humbled. Thank You

St. Patrick’s Day,the Luck ‘O the Irish,the pagans by Tara Greene Astrology

by Tara Greene Astrology Psychic  & More Copyright 2011- eternity & beyond.

St. Patrick, Catholic Irish Saint,is known for driving the snakes out of Ireland. That story  is actually a cultural re-visioning. St. Patrick, identified with the shamrock, was no Saint and not lucky at all for the pagans who worshipped the Goddess. Ireland since time out of mind was a pagan, Wiccan, Druid, Nature, Goddess worshipping land. These people were demonized and ripped off by St. Paddy. 

St. Paddy is NOT Irish. Born in Scotland  to Roman parents around 387 AD.  Taken prisoner at 14, he was sent to Ireland as a slave. He studied the language and learned the customs of the people, original Nature loving, pantheistic earth worshippers. 

As the story goes, Patrick prayed to God. He had a dream he was to leave Ireland but the Irish people were calling him back. He studied to be a priest. He became a Bishop and was sent back to Ireland to teach the Gospel. He arrived at Slane on March 25, 433. Patrick converted many thousands of people including Irish Kings who were moved {or threatened} upon hearing Patrick’s message. He himself had many disciples who were all later canonized. He preached for over 40 years, apparently worked many miracles, and wrote of his love for God in his confessions. He lived in poverty, travelled and endured much suffering and died March 17, 461 AD. at Saul, where he had built his first church. It’s 1,550 years since he died. 

THE SHAMROCK

Patrick used the shamrock, as the symbol of the holy Trinity. The SHAMrock or clover {note the sham pun in shamrock, puns are always give a ways} is originally an ancient PAGAN SYMBOL of the GODDESS, the original Holy TRINITY, the TRIPLE GODDESS, whose phases we see as the Moon waxing and waning.  

The Triple Goddess, like the Roman God Janus, who was also an overlay of the original Goddess worshipping religions, represents the past present and future. Christianity like Hinduism, Judaism, Islam always incorporated former religions but then skews the original meaning, usually inferring the opposite.

Sheilaugh Na Gig Irish Pagan symbol in Church

Catholic pagan symbol Sheila Na Gig

St. Patrick was famous for driving the snakes out of Ireland, meaning he drove the pagans out/converted them. The snake is a euphemism; the snakes symbolize the Goddess, rebirth, sexuality, eternity, and wisdom. Snakes were always her honoured symbol. In the re-writing of the Goddess history, the propaganda popularly known as the Bible, tells how in Genesis, the snake was turned into evil and Eve made to be seen as wicked, the original sinner, forever dooming women to hardship in birth, and never able to repent.

 

Cretan Snake goddess

Cretan Snake goddess worhsipped for thousands of years

It is the worst most wicked, horrible, most ridiculous LIE,  filled with self-hatred, hatred of life, divorced from nature. It  was of course built on the foundations of Judaism and the old testament which was the historical very violent story of the crushing of the Goddess religion, the defamation of the Feminine.

Everything the Goddess stood for, love of Nature, the Feminine relating principles, honouring life, children, sexuality etc. was made bad, indecent, devil worship by the Catholic Church and the Bible.

Christians thank him the conversion of the ancient Irish pagans. But in the name of Christ who tolerated all peoples, honoured women and preached love of thy neighbour, pagans especially women,who were labelled witches and -worshippers,were tortured to convert, and had their properties and rank stolen from them.

 To some Pagans, wiccans, druids, Goddess worshippers St. Patrick is a despised person who drove the Irish people from their original faith.  Some Wiccans may actually enjoy the celebration because of its “hidden” Pagan meaning, and smile when they see devout Christians wearing the shamrock, the Goddess’symbol proudly.

As in the Mists of Avalon, the re-telling of the Arthurian and Grail legends from the original Pagan Goddess worshipping aspect, the Goddess in any name is still Her energy. Goddess worship is earth honouring, egalitarian, matriarchal. 

Just as the white people carry a collective karmic debt and shame for destroying Indigenous peoples earth worshipping religion and cultures. In Canada,there is now a token giving back, as in the Queen Charlotte Island being renamed in their indigenous tongue and land treaties give native people back the lands and bones or historical relics taken in colonialized plunder, as in Egypt and China that were stolen from them. 

Perhaps we should rethink St. Patrick when we’re out in the pub drinking green beer, wearing shamrocks, and singing When Irish Eyes Are Smilin’ and Oh Danny Boy and at least toast THE GODDESS. Because as She says: “All acts of love and beauty are my worship.” 

And speaking of Ireland. The name Tara, popularly connected to the Hills of Tara, and the Kings of Tara is originally a Goddess name. Tara, whose ancient worship continues today,She is still worshipped daily in India and Tibet.  Green Tara whose name is originally SITARA, means the Stars. Therefore she is just like the Egyptian Goddess of the sky, where all life originated, the goddess Nut, or Nuit, aka the Milky Way Galaxy. Hey we don’t call it a Guyaxy. 

Sitara, her name means the Galaxy, all that is, She is the original creatress, Mother Nature. The Sitar is her heavenly music, the music of the cosmos. Her worship is so ancient and widespread it ran from India all the way to Ireland.

In English Tara =Terra in Latin meaning The EARTH. Eartha or Artha in Sanskrit means the Earth. All the names have an etymological root from Sanskrit considered to be a holy language. So in India and Tibet the mantra, the prayers for Tara invoke her vibration, as chanting OHM is considered to be the original word of God. Tara actually has 21 different manifestations, colours and dances representing her powers.  Green Tara is Mother Nature. 

Chanting her mantra or saying these words brings protection.

Om Tara Tu Tara Tura Swoha. The Tura is pronounced Tooray.

For Japan and all the desecration of Her Planet please chant these words to divine Goddess tara.

Blessings

HH Dalai Lama in Toronto,Full Moon mayor Elections,Tara Greene psychic astrology predictions

A pretty packed weekend Oct 22 into Oct 25. That Full Moon falls at 9:37 pm EDT and then goes void of course- good for spiritual work, especially as we are blessed that His Holiness the Dalai Lama is in Toronto also Oct 22- 25, very special to have an Enlightened Being in the Big Smoke. Please watch Bodhisattva by Steely Dan

That Full Moon is at 29 degrees of Aries on Oct 22, the “critical degree.” All Full Moons are oppositions of Sun= Day Light consciousenss, ego and Moon, Feminine, Unconscious feeelings. In the Aries/ Libra -opposition its very much about Arian-me, I, fight,self, ego, ignition, force, firey, spirit,action, defenses, Mars ruled vs. Libran airy cool, need for relationships,others, balance, harmony Venus ruled artistic, go- between, indecision, Justice.

SUN ENTERS SCORPIO OCT 23

Happy SUN TIME to all you Scorpio’ s who always wear black. Hey I have a Scorpio Ascendant to. So I know all to well the intense, obsessive, wading in the depths, all the familiarity with the Unconscious, the dark, all the suppressed emotions, the intensity, etc. the wanting to feel everything, and live life to 200%. Its a roller coaster. Very soulfull, not so easy. Power, control, sex, all the  big advertizing shtick these days! The world’s turned ad agency Scorpionic.   Good time to throw out the garbage, fix the leaky plumbing, investigate penetrating secrets and other matters.

Election Day Oct 25 Toronto

I could only find Rob Ford’s birthdate and none at all about George Smitherman- he must be a Scorpio! cou;dn’t even get a year right for George.

The Moon enters Gemini @ 7:48 a.m. Mercury Gemini’s ruling planet makes a hot and heavy conjunction to Venus in Scorpio at 9:18 am. This is an interesting combination. Mercury rules the mind and communication and Venus the heart, but in Scorpio where she is considered weak because Scorpio is ruled by Mars, her opposite, and Mars is in his power place in Scoprio too. The conjunction shows a combo of head and groin action, more like the throbbing need for power, sex, control, the forbidden element.

Smitherman is gay, Rob Ford is a Gemini. That Gemini moon just makes 5 count ’em big QUINCUNX’s on election day. Quincunx’s are like bad romances, or like trying to communicate in a language you are totally in the dark about. The first quincunx is to the Sun= source, light, charisma. The 2nd to Pluto, Lord od death and Rebirth, 3rd to Asteroid ceres, Earth Goddess, she governs women; the 4th Moon quincunx is to Venus in Scorpio, @ 9:29 pm the Moon rules the people, Venus is women, so women will dump Rob Ford in typical Scorpio fashion, don;t need ya now, and the ability to vote from feelings will be blocked and inharmonious;  and the last Quincunx is Moon to Mercury, since Mercury rules Gemini, by the end of Election Day @ 11:51 pm methinks Mr. Ford will be in a sorry state!

Election Toronto by Tara Greene astrologer psychic predictions

Rob Ford astrology election winner?

Rob Ford’s astrology chart with no exact time on May 28 1969 Toronto shows the Sun in Gemini at 7 degrees. Gemini is airy, chatty, all over the place, immature, Peter Pan complex. The Sun is conjunct Retrograde Mercury, Gemini’s ruling planet at 8 degrees. This combination puts the infamous Gemini split- personality duality into further treacherous zones as Mercury’s power is fizzled out by the Sun’s bright rays.

Can’t ever decide which side of the fence he is on, Mr. Rob is always waffling. Do you think this makes a good mayor?

 Mercury is opposite Mars, which is also Retrograde. This further increases his natal opposition of thought and action.  See Mars below-

Moon seems to be in Libra at 27 degrees so he can seem fair and ambassadorial and can be charming. Moon represents emotions, feelings, and detachment in airy Libra. A people who needs people kinda guy. Desperately wants to be liked, Lots of air here,{ hot?} also indicates indecisiveness.

Venus at 23 degrees of Aries, is brash, not inclined to beauty, a lover of war and spontaneous actions, easily gets in over his head. Venus is weak in Aries but all Arian planets are full of energy and drive. Not too charming, is opposite the Moon. Indicates a strong attachment to his mother, and needing emotional security. So acts to take care of others in a fair-minded manner. Emotional needs are met through money, luxury, knowing the right people.

Mars in Sagittarius also Retrograde, This guy has lots of karmic repeat lessons as indicated by so many Retrograde planets at his birth.. Retrograde Mars is repeating a lesson around power, abuse, being a warrior, aggression, issues with men, teachers, the law. Co-incidentally Rob Ford was the outlaw who killed Jesse James.  This aspect also indicates difficulty in school, that higher education is not his forte to put it mildly. Someone who is unsophisticated, and crude by nature, a Centaur. Mars opposite to Mercury means – he may think he has the brains but its all brawn.  Afraid to stretch his imagination or try anything new, has difficulty grasping a sense of higher idealism.

A bad teacher and leader.

Jupiter is in Virgo conjunct Pluto and Uranus.  Jupiter is expansive, in Virgo it is usually a perfectionist, a nitpicker, a hard worker dedicated to serving others, but also himself. Big health problems with Jupiter in Virgo. Retrograde Uranus and Pluto huddle around Jupiter, three planets in a huddle are called a stellium. All their energies are intermingled and act inseparably as one entity. Jupiter conjunct Pluto is power, riches but can also be back room politics, unusually deceptive, deceitful, revengeful, revolutionary underpinnings, and a big bluffer.

Saturn represents the father, authority, maturity, corporate structure, seniority, hard work, karma, struggles, obstacles, career and worldly recognition. His father was in politics, Saturn in Taurus, well he looks very Taurean. Stocky, stubborn, salt of the earth kinda reg Joe guy. Sensual, fixed, stable, conservative. Pluto is trining his Saturn right now. This lends him power in his career now. It is an easy aspect.

Neptune is also Retrograde at 27 degrees of Scorpio. Neptune rules illusions, delusions, spirituality, dreams, working behind the scenes, mental health, compassion, alcoholism, and addictions. In Scorpio this cam be all smoke and mirrors. Posing as a compassionate person meanwhile digging the dirt, very deeply ruthlessly, someone with very addictive behaviours, untrustworthy. This is an old karmic pattern.

His North Node is at 27 degrees of Pisces. The North Node represents the highest spiritual goal. In Pisces, this is root for the underdog, be a chameleon, mutable, dreamy,

Idealistic, compassionate, martyr, works behind the scenes. If he plays his cards right in this life, he is getting close to finishing up some major karma.

Interestingly Jupiter and Uranus are on his North Node right now, so expect the Unexpected, Big changes but not necessarily stable at all. This helps him to grow and expands his higher goals. Jupiter and Uranus are opposite his natal Jupiter and Uranus in Virgo. So this is an opposition a rebalancing act for him. What he started 6, 12 and 24 years ago has come round half circle. The planets are also opposite his Pluto and his South Node too, which is at 27 degrees of Virgo and trining his Natal Neptune in Scorpio. Interestingly the transiting North Node will enter Sagittarius in early 2011 and transit the Galactic Center at 27 degrees of Sagittarius in March. He is aligned with this kind of evolutionary energy somehow.

Transiting Neptune and Chiron are squaring his natal Neptune- this is a classic. This is a mid life transit where the person being affected feels like al is rosy, and is set up for a huge fall! If Rob thinks he’s risen to the top and he sees the world through rose coloured glasses! Well better get a big cushion ready for your arse.

Pluto will be squaring his Natal Chiron in Aries at 6 degrees shortly. Chiron is the wounded healer. As Pluto rules the soul, you got be clean and transparent- he does use these words. Pluto is power riches control. This can give him the power to heal others and conversely get a huge kick in the teeth himself. Jupiter will transit his Chiron in the spring. That’s a big hurt. Oy what a headache! One way or the  other.

Jupiter is intrepidly marching through Aries in 2011 hitting his Venus and onto Taurus where Rob will experience a Jupiter Saturn conjunction, which is an excellent transit. It happens only once every 12 years.

These are some very powerful transits he is having. When dealing with Uranian energy the outcome is erratic, it is all about re-inventing yourself.

I wish I had George Smitherman’s chart but I don’t.  I don’t like Rob Ford myself. My pendulum said Rob would win, but then looking at the aspects for election day my sense is changing, he seems to slip behind and I predict there will be a huge unexpected support for Smitherman. It will be very tight and difficult for whoever wins to make much headway, as there will be always vociferous opposition. Remember the revolutionary energies begin in spring of 2011. Whoever is the most new, Uranian, different, humanitarian, truly innovative will be instep with the prevailing winds of change over the next 7 years.

Tibet, why the Tibetan people will win their autonomy by Tara Greene

Tibetan Prayer Wheels Tibetan Birth Chart MArch 10 1959

This chart shows the date of the Tibetan People’s revolt against the Communist Chinese brutal demolishing of their religion, people, culture and country since 1950 when they invaded Tibet a region they somehow feel that they have always “owned.”.Their uprising then in 1959 is the blueprint for the Tibetan’s  future autonomy from China. 

It’s not just the Olympics in China this year that is propelling them to attempt to preserve their culture way of life and religion before the dreaded train that can deliver 5,000 Chinese a day to Lhasa from Bejing begins to make them as a minority in their own country.

Astrologically this birth chart and the transitting planets to it shows a major movement for revolution for the people taking back their power and the possibility of the Controlling power crushing the people.

We can help, the eyes of the world are on China now, which has the most repressive regime in the world and a history- remember Tieneman Square, the treatment of Falun Gong? etc. of horribly inhuman treatment of anyone who resists the mighty hammer of Communist absolute control.

The Dalai LAma has nothing to do with this, his stance is always peacefull. There is a younger generation who can’t take it anymore. Tibet’s existence is at stake now more than ever plus the planets are impelling action.

The activators of why now in the Birth Chart are two fold.

Retrograde Saturn at 2 degrees of Virgo is exactly conjuncting the Tibetan people revolt chart which has Pluto Retrograde at 2 degrees of Virgo. Saturn and Pluto together symbolize a karmic breaking point, rebirth at any cost. SAturn rules repression, dogmatism, patriarchy, limitations, obstacles. Pluto rules the people, the collective unconscious, power, secrets, absolute control, death, rebirth, transformation. So this situation could go either way, but I believe that if we in the so called free world of democracy here in the West put pressure on China and back the Tibetan people’s struggle for autonomy nay independence from China that the will of the freedom can prevail.  

AND HERE”S WHAT YOU CAN DO TO CONTRIBUTE, USE THE FREEDOM THAT YOU HAVE TO BEENEFIT ALL OTHERS-support a petition for human rights and dialogue in Tibet-

May Peace be within you.                                    

Dear friends,
  IN JUST 7 DAYS OVER 1 MILLION OF US HAVE SIGNED THE PETITION
supporting human rights and dialogue in Tibet – the fastest growing
internet petition in history! AFTER DECADES OF INJUSTICE, THE TIBETAN
PEOPLE ARE CRYING OUT TO THE WORLD FOR CHANGE, AND THE WORLD IS
ANSWERING.
  As China’s leaders decide whether to respond to Tibetan grievances
with increased repression or dialogue with the Dalai Lama, an
INTERNATIONAL DAY OF ACTION has been declared for Monday, March 31st.
IN 4 DAYS, THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE IN CITIES ACROSS THE WORLD WILL MARCH
TO CHINESE EMBASSIES and consulates, and stack hundreds of boxes
containing our petition outside them. 1 million signatures makes a
mountain of boxes – it’s a powerful way to deliver our message.
  We have just 4 days left until the petition delivery, so we’re
redoubling our efforts to build the petition even larger – to 2
million signatures – in that time. PLEASE CLICK BELOW TO SIGN, IF YOU
HAVEN\’T ALREADY, AND THEN FORWARD THIS EMAIL TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS AND
FAMILY:

  China’s hardliners are lashing out publicly at the Dalai Lama–but
MANY CHINESE LEADERS BELIEVE DIALOGUE IS THE BEST HOPE FOR STABILITY
IN TIBET. Governments around the world have begun calling for
dialogue, and there are many hopeful signs that, if we can keep the
pressure up, China will agree. Already, we have had constructive
discussions with Chinese officials about the message of our campaign.
  CHINESE PRESIDENT HU JINTAO VALUES HIS COUNTRY\’S INTERNATIONAL
REPUTATION, AND HE NEEDS TO HEAR FROM US THAT THE \’MADE IN CHINA\’
BRAND AND THE UPCOMING OLYMPICS IN BEIJING WILL SUCCEED ONLY IF HE
CHOOSES DIALOGUE OVER THE HARDLINERS\’ REPRESSION. An avalanche of
global people power is moving to get his attention. Our petition
recognizes the concerns of Chinese leaders that riots and separatism
could lead to dangerous instability. But we support the position of
the Dalai Lama, that the best path to stability and development for
China lies through dialogue and respect, not repression.
  This is the most promising moment in decades to address the
injustices of Tibet – but already the media is moving on to other
stories. We need to seize this moment with a massive statement of
global support this Monday — FOR THE NEXT FOUR DAYS, LET\’S PULL OUT
ALL THE STOPS FOR TIBET.
  With hope,
  Ricken, Graziela, Ben, Iain, Pascal, Milena, Galit, Paul, Esra’a and
the whole Avaaz team

Tranistting Pluto is also but 1 degree and change away from the M.C. or the very top of the chart symbolizing HIGH NOON. The essense, the Light, where Tibet can shine brightest. Pluto is the people, the collective uncoscious. transformation, birth, death, rebirth, the phoenix rising from the flames and ashes. It’ll definitely be soon, Pluto will Retro-grade back into Sagittarius till Nov, 2008 soon. Then Pluto is full speed ahead into capricorn and will corss the Northern most part if this chart in 2009. What is started now will fuel future revolution and freedom for Tibet.

Uranus planet of REVOLUTION is conjuncting the SUN of this chart. The people cannot stop themselves from attempting to be free now, like the monks in Burma did recently. Uranus is very powerfull here conjunct the Sun, the vitality, the identitiy. Uranus never promises a bed of roses though, more the roller coaster ride and unexpected events.

PLEASE STOP BUYING ALL THAT POORLY MADE CHINESE CRAP!

No more dollar store for you. They are unethical.

It’s maily all useless junk, more plastic to pollute the world.  Chinese made nails split and fall apart, and they are being used to build that expensive new home you just bought which ain’t gonna last cause it’s been made from slipshod materials. All in the name of the greedy contractors, real estate planners etc to line their pockets with more PROFIT at lot’s of peoples expense. Don’t think of the future becuase this is a nihilistic immature live for the moment kind of attitude with no responsibilty to anything but your own ego, greed and debauched values.

The Chinese can be ruthless business people, they’ll sell anything to make a buck. Lead paint in toys who cares if a generation of kids gets toxified from their little cars and whatnot. Or pet food, we’ll slip in cheap fungacide filler no one will notice. But that’s not the case anymore. It would be better to pay the real value for things again and get value.

IF YOU BUY THIS STUFF THEN YOU ARE COMPLICIT, YOU AGREE WITH THE CHINESE TORTURE OF FALUN GUNG ADHERENTS WHO HAVE THEIR ORGANS RIPPED OUT OF THEM ALIVE AND WITH NO ANESTHETIC AS PUNISHMENT FOR THEIR HIDEOUS CRIME OF FOLLOWING A SPIRITUAL BELIEF THAT THE CHINESE DENOUNCE.

I DEEPLY RESPECT ANCIENT CHINESE CULTURE, THEY HAVE BEEN BRILLIANT IN THEIR ORIGINAL SPIRITUALITY, THE I CHING, CONFUSCIOUS, MING POTTERY, BONSAI, THE TAO all are incredibly rich.

WHAT HAPPENED? CONSUMERISM, CAPITALISM the pox of the World.

Boycott the cCinese olympics, they have done it themselves before.  Support Euro, US Canadian, Japanese, Korean or Mexican products instead. Stop buying all the crap anyways, you don’t need it.

Send your support to the Tibetan people. Their quest and dedication to Buddist  practices, being the only country in the world to ever disarm their Army since the 1700’s {they were once fierce warriors} and turn 70% of their male population into being strictly educated and rigorously trained in Buddhist enlightenment practices since the Chinese take over in 1950. 

Your support, symbolized by Pluto will help them attain their freedom. The Tibetans are not inseparable from wach one of us, we are them , they are us. It only takes a moment, please join in. And in the immortal words of John Lennon .. Imagine…

Imagine there’s no countries, I wonder if you can,

no religion to die for, a brotherhood of Man/Woman.
