Inspirational Card of the Day, THE FOOL of enlightenment

June 10 Card of the DAY –


THE FOOL Tarot  TAra Greene Tarot


“Be foolish, that your heart may be at peace.”

OKay I missed a day of daily cards here I admit it,so I am the fool. I haven’t tried to fool you at all.

I think it’s better to make a fresh start. So what better way than turning up THE FOOL? YAY!

THE FOOL-the very first symbol in the TAROT  is Zero, the card has a name but really no number, he is naught,  eternity.

but also he is the ending as well, as #22 Major Trump.

The Fool is the Soul itself, childlike trust, innocence, always learning, seeking, curious, open.

The FOOL -Lives totally in the present moment, no past no future,

THE FOOL  is the embodiment and symbol of ENLIGHTENMENT itself,

no agendas, no conscious mind chatter, no ego,  nothing left to lose,everything to gain,

Has done everything already, so what’s to fear? Nothing, no fear.

THE FOOL is traditionally shown wearing a jester’s or  raggedy clothes, a young man with a little dog- the instincts- nipping at his heels,

carrying a small pack and a staff. sometime’s a flower. He is carefree. 

The Fool is the shadow of the KING. King’s used to employee jester’s to sit at the side of the throne. They are two sides of the same coin. The Fool is the real knowledge but in disguise, the King is the ego, and apparent control. The jester keeps the King’s ego in check. Power can come and go very quickly, better to be humble.

Being the Fool unbinds energy, instincts, the wisdom of the superconscious.

The FOOL is timelessness- stopping the world as Don Juan the Yaqui shaman who taught Carlos Castenada.

The Fool always symbolizes a brand new beginning, a new birth, a fresh start.

The first time one has a Tarot reading one is considered to be embodying or initiated by The FOOL. The Fool can unlock you from your own prison.


All is new. Forget any agendas or shoulds. Trust your instincts, live moment to moment, Who cares what anyone else thinks? Be true to yourself,let go of the past. Drop your ego and see the miraculous world you are in. Laugh at yourself. Free yourself from your own prison. Opportunity is everywhere.Everything is creative energy, look at things in an entirely new way. Trust, have no fear. You are an eternal child. PLAY, have fun.

Inspirational card of the day 6 + 7= 13/13 Late, superstitious?

Sorry I am late dear readers for June 7th its almost over. I want to thank you personally for following my blog as I have over 1,200 followers now. WOW! I also realize some of my followers are in Australia and China and they already 12-1 7 hours ahead of where I am in TORONTO in EDT.

But I am really only one little lady. Busy juggling like THE MAGICIAN in the TAROT,  in person clients,booking future events, doing events, writing- a lot, taking care of my family, a dog, 2 cats and wait a minute the Psychic needs down time to simply reflect. It is a very demanding lifestyle. But I do love it. It is draining and I am also under pretty heavy Astrology transits which I will write about too.

So June 7 which is 6, 7 (20)  13 adds up to 13, 13 as a client of mine pointed out today.  VERY FEMININE Number.

The Card of the DAY is 


Prince of disks Tarot tara greene


It is obviously TAUREAN. Prince’s are younger masculine personality energies.

The Prince covers the Astrology territory of April 11- May 10 so some ARIES initiative in there as well,

it’s 20 degrees Aries – 20 degrees Taurus. 

Ya got stuff there honey?

The Prince of Disks, He is the AIR element of the Earth.  He is practical, sensual, active, stubborn, willful, determined, resourceful, a DIY person, dependable, steady.

He symbolizes earth becoming intelligent, self-aware. 

HOW was your day June 7?  Reflect on how the energy of the Prince of DISKS applied to you on this day.

How could you have used his grounded powerful purposeful energy to have aided you?

Lilith the POLE DANCER of the World,Black Moon buck stops here

THE BLACK MOON LILITH is lingering at the 29th degree of GEMINI on the POLE STAR  


The 29th “critical degree” of GEMINI is at the NORTH STAR pointing the WAY.
The Moon travels along an elliptical path around the earth. An eclipse has two focal points, a North and a SOUTH node, the other focal, not occupied by the Earth has been called the Black Moon or LILITH. It is a simplified explanation as the path of the Moon is not a neat ellipse it is wobbly. You may hear of the Black Moon, the True or Mean Moon,the Dark Moon and LILITH the asteroid. It is confusing.
black moon lillith
Diagram from ASTRODIENST
I am referring to the BLACK MOON whose glyph is a crescent moon facing right with a cross of matter as her “legs.”
THE DARK MOON LILITH is one of the FEMININE FACES OF GOD. LILITH  describes our relation with G*d, with sacrifices and letting go. With walking one’s own path. With deep themes about sexuality, freedom, rejection, anger and revenge. Lillith never compromises.
LILITH was the ORIGINAL WOMAN,and  preceded EVE.  LILITH was made equally with Adam from the red earth. Only Jewish men who were allowed to study and debate the sacred texts would have known about Liliith. But all of the ancient world new of her and worshiped her. She is MOTHER NATURE the GODDESS of a thousand names. ISIS, INANNA, KALI, she  is a powerful Archetype, and archetypes are eternal. She lives in the unconscious of every man-split off and in every woman as well. She became blamed as a vampiress, harpy, she -devil, child eater.
The DIVINE FEMININE in women and in men have been split into two aspects- the MOTHER or the WHORE  by the PATRIARCHY. Mainly through the Old Testament and then the Catholic Church.  Sexual domination created this split, and defames all women.
LILITH, the BLACK MOON will linger on this ‘critical point” aligning with the North Star highlighting that split and we must pay attention to it now till June 10 when she enters CANCER.
LILITH the Original woman
by John Collier
LILITH ‘s power is as an independent woman, fully sexual, insatiable compared to a man’s sexuality. MEN could not accept LILITH, so she was demonized for this in the  Catholic Church. Her twin sister is the Shekinah, the DIVINE Mother aspect. Both these FEMININE aspects are part of G*d. She became known as MARY- virginal.
NEGATING Lilith  is very dangerous, it creates objectification and control of women through  pornography, and allows for them being tortured, feared, ridiculed, projected upon,raped,abused, burned at the stake. The whole BIBLE story is more about men’s own insecurities about the FEMININE. The Hindu’s and Buddhists continued to worship Goddesses even in a patriarchal tradition.
LILITH refused to be dominated sexually by ADAM and decided to leave the Garden of Eden so the story goes, to live by the red sea. God sent angels to get her to return but she said No No No. So Adam needed a mate. Hey presto the patriarchs made up EVE out of ADAM”s RIB- a tell-tale man-made concept so obvious. They then blamed all their fear and hatred on to EVE condemning women to almost not even having souls. A horrible story. Don’t believe a word of it.  Large parts of the Old Testament and New are huge brainwashing ad campaigns that took thousands of years to bring common sense people into believing obvious outrageous lies.  You are born of woman. End of story.
LILITH was also the Snake in the Garden of EDEN whispering to EVE to wake up. Lilith was said to be “the bride of Satan” when she is God’s left hand side. Lilith was “cursed” by the patriarchs to giving birth to and eating 100 of her own children every day. So her myth got tied up with her being a child stealer. She was made into a Succubus or Incubus a vampire who drank men’s semen when they had wet dreams or masturbated. Again all of this is sexual manipulation. Women were afraid Lilith would kill their babies and used amulets to protect their children.
WOMEN must embrace LILITH their dark sister- the original feminine nature GODDESS.
She is independent and kowtow’s to NONE but herself.    Men must embrace her and remove the split-the mother whore split.  There are huge cultural and physical reverberations from this split in the world.
Ignoring LILITH invites her fury and rage which we can see her in the destruction by nature- tornadoes, earthquakes. SHE will not be denied anymore. The DIVINE FEMININE energy returns now since Dec 21 2012.
We must revere and honor the Goddess within to be able to have equality in our  relationships on all levels.
Women are regaining some power in the world in the WEST. This is a very recent accomplishment. Yet we still live in the Patriarchal world with double standards, where women and children are raped by the thousands daily, sold for sex slaves, and there is a patina of  puritan ethics, while men are brainwashed and manipulated with pornography. EVE ENSLER’S V campaign is a very powerful movement. All women must join together to help advance and save each other.
The Dalai Lama said “Western Women will change the world.”
She is the snake Goddess primal, We are in the water snake year. She is ETERNAL, the first emanation from G*D.  WOMEN Embrace your own independence, your inner instincts, your full sexuality. IT is SACRED as is all of creation.
EMBRACE HER. Invoke her. Call her. LILITH -GODDESS most high. She  is re-emerging now like a snake coming out of hibernation over a very long winter because we so desperatley need her energy.  There are many books and poems written to honor HER. The oracles at DELPHI all used snakes as part of their abiliity to prophesy.
Dance and slither like a snake.
MEN must learn to honor women as their equals and teachers about love and relating.
My friend Kathleen in CALIFORNIA is the GODDESS of SNAKE YOGA
There is a movement towards TANTRIC sexuality, sex which is cosmic, transpersonal, DIVINE. That is the purpose of sex and why it was damned by the church. In mutual orgasm, in a spiritual intention to merge into ONENESS, the two in one become identical to the GOD AND GODDESS in union continuously creating the UNIVERSE. the vibration of the UNIVERSES is a cosmic eternal orgasm. OHHHHM.  Think of it as that sound.

Home is where the heart is.Venus in CANCER, Love Astrology forecast

Venus enters Cancer June 2 – June 27

Venus In Cancer

Painting of Venus on the half shell By Henri Picou 1850-s

The Goddess of LOVE comes Home to the water source of  CANCER, the ocean, the origins of life, the protective womb, from whence Venus and we all are born. The way to anyone’s heart with Venus in Cancer is literally through their stomach’s, feed ’em fabulous nourishing food. Eat, eat like a stereotypical  Jewish Mother.   Cancer is FOOD and Venus will highlight our need to protect our food from destructive GMO’s and MONSANTO destorying the food supply.

With all the horrendous damage from tornadoes, HOME’s needs to be more secure.

Love needs emotional security now like never before. Cuddly,  meet the family, taking care of each other, these are all Cancerian themes. Let your family and especially your mom know how much you love them.

Venus in CANCER want to take care of you but also needs to learn to be taken care of. Cancer’s homes are their castles, like the Crab symbol. They need safe harbour.  How at home do you feel in your own skin?  Your home/ CANCER  is you. How safe, beautiful, artful is your home? How peaceful is it? Decorate your home, buy art and beautiful objects which Venus loves. 

Cancer’s show their  feelings, they cant help it.Vulnerability is a great strength. Mercury is in Cancer as well so talk about and share them. Watch old movies, tear jerkers and get out the hankies. Have a large family reunion. Cook a ton of food and remeinisce.   Family is not just blood. It is your friends who can be more like family to you. Let them know how much they mean to you.

If you are thinking about getting pregnant Venus in Cancer is favourable but especially when Jupiter enters Cancer on June 25-27 while Venus  is still there.

 Cancer is the 4th Sign and house naturally. Where is the sign of Cancer in your chart? Check for which house Venus is transiting. That’s where to receive the love and give it. The 4th house/Cancer is your Mother, your childhood,your unconscious memories.Revisit your childhood. Love that Inner Child. Play with her/him.

ALL WATER and Earth signs benefit the most. Challenges to Cardinal signs

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford,crack head,eh? Astrology from Tara Greene

Well Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is personally destroying my home town city’s reputation in the world. There is no class in “world class city”  Toronto’s dreams on the world’s stage now. I have been disgusted by Mr Ford since he was elected in October 2010. How?  By  outlying Conservative suburbanite’s as a backlash to the downtown core of multicultural Liberal Toronto urbanites.

You may not know it but Toronto’s nickname is HOGTOWN and I find Mr. Ford’s behavior to embody that moniker totally. He says misogynist and racist things on camera.

THE GREAT WHITE NORTH has taken on a whole new significance.

Great white North Toronto Tara Greene

SCTV’s Bob and Doug Mackenzie  Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas 1980

The evolution of Hosers from 20th century to snow blowers in the 21st.

Mr. Ford allegedly caught on video with a crack pipe in his hands. Somali drug dealers showed it to two Toronto newspaper reporters and John cook from Gawker on an iphone. Their are asking for $200,000 to hand it over and Gawker, a U.S. company has a  fundraising campaign to get the sum together.- see link below

The Somali drug dealers for some reason aren’t being questioned or arrested for selling illegal drugs and were interviewed saying they want the money so they can leave Toronto for the “promised lands” of Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s tax-free oil sands of Alberta and start a clean new life allegedly, or sell more crack to a rich and bored audience.

One of Mr. Ford’s former “buddies” another Somali fellow was shot dead in a gangland shoot out in Toronto in March.  Mr. Ford has become a household name for all the wrong reasons.

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford crack scandal

Jon Stewart spent 6 minutes of TV time totally lambasting the former football coach.

Jimmy Kimmel also produced a staged Interview with an actor posing as the Toronto Mayor

Jay Leno also mentioned it and said its’ because “there’s not a lot to do in Toronto.”

I beg to differ- Toronto is Heaven according to Michael Moore, and is the only city with 130 different ethnic groups living in relative peace in a GTA of  over 6,000,000 people,  it’s now the 4th largest city in North America.

This is not the first time Ford has been in trouble, he’s already fought many charges of being drunk, rerouting public transit for his football team, having his photo taken with a Neo Nazi, caught calling Asians “orientals” and saying racist comments in public. Walking right into a camera.  Talking on his cell phone and driving which is illegal.

I predicted Rob Ford’s win in October 24 2010 and briefly went over his astrology chart you can read that here

Here’s a surrealist image of Rob Ford’s defense, after French artist Rene Magritte.

For Americans and others who don’t speak French, Canada’s “other ” official language.

It says  “This is not a crack pipe.”

Lets look at Bob’s current astrology transits

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford Astrology Tara Greene

I’ve intuitively Rectified Rob Ford’s chart as there  is no known birth time.

He looks very Taurus like to me, so I’ve put that sign as his Ascendent and guess what? Planet NEPTUNE planet of addicts, snake oil salesmen, deluded, secretive, glamour seeking individuals have this aspect and it is sitting in his 7th house of “others.” The recent Solar Eclipse at 19 degrees Taurus would have fallen across his Ascendant /Descendent axis, the horizon line.

Transiting Jupiter in Gemini is nearing a 90 degree square to his North and South nodes in PISCES/Virgo. Jupiter rules the HIGHER law- no pun intended. I mean Sacred Law, the true justice not false corrupt justice. This is a karmic face the law for your past injustices. Seems perfect timing to me.

Jupiter is also squaring his Natal PLUTO JUPITER URANUS conjunction in Virgo.  That powerful Trinity spells out a power crazed big risk taker, who thinks he can do whatever he wants, is above the law, is so full of himself, conceited, Psychopathic.

Rob is also having his SATURN opposition which is also a get caught in your tracks holding the bag kind of aspect. Happens every 14 years or so.

Rob has a very difficult aspect at his birth, Mercury planet of thinking in GEMINI,Retrograde,which it rules, so its  indecisive, immature, irresponsible, usually labelled as learning disabled, is opposite  Mars also  RETROGRADE in Sagittarius which makes the usual truth teller a man who trips on his own words. Retrograde Mars in Sagittarius means abuse of the Law. This is a karmic aspect, his thinking and actions aren’t congruous. This man is not conscious and therefore  very dangerous.

The Lunar Eclipse on May 24 is opposite  his Mercury in Gemini and in square to his Natal Chiron, the wounded healer.  His double talking is as the Canadian comedian Russel Peters says “Someone’s gonna get a hurtin’.”

NEPTUNE PLANET OF ADDICTIONS delusion, illusions, glamour, secrets, is SQUARING-HARD Rob’s Sun. Neptune in his  natural 11th house of wishes hopes and dreams has turned in his delusions of grandeur from a Pipe DREAM into a PIPE NIGHTMARE.

I think I will rename him SPONGE BOB Square Crack.

He is turning only 44 in a few days, A Master number, 4  being the number  of Power in the Tarot. THE KING or Emperor. The opposite side of the King is THE FOOL. He is making a huge fool of himself and this city.

Oh well, so it goes as Kurt Vonnegut used to say in Slaughterhouse Five.

R.I.P. Ray Manzarek, the end,Astrology of a rock legend

I was sad to hear that co-founder,organist and bass player of the Doors Ray Manzarek passed on May 20.

I was a huge Doors fan and got to see them perform live when they first released Light my Fire in a small C.B.C. Toronto studio in 1967 with a maybe a hundred people or so in the audience. I also saw them play two more times and met them twice backstage. I have  a nice photo of Ray which I will scan and post.

Ray’s signature organ music, he played bass and lead, certainly is the mainstay of the Doors sound. Jim was the writer and leader, but the two really coalesce the powerful Doors music sound. Of course John Densmore and Robby Kreiger also made the entire group what it was.

Ray Manzarek was an AQUARIAN born February 12 1939 Chicago Illinois 3:30 am.

The Doors Astrology Tara Greene

Ray had the SUN in the 2nd house of resources conjunct his Mercury-planet of communications. He was an age of Aquarius kind of guy. An innovator, a genius, worked well in groups and a great organizer.

MOON in SAGITTARIUS at 6 degrees is conjunct Mars at 8 degrees in his 12th house. This is  a very spiritual placement.  Ray’s was a fiery emotional and spiritually driven man. His drive {Mars} was to awaken and inspire people. His Music was honest, inspiring, philosophical, all-encompassing.


Close to the Galactic Center. This placement makes people visionaries because they are really tuned into a HIGHER REALITY and vibration. They are metaphysicians of one sort or another. Touring, travelling and seeing new places was something  Ray must have loved. I am certian he was very well read.

 VENUS his artistic talents was at 6 degrees CAPRICORN in the 1st  house of self.

He loved to work, he was ambitious for success and a practical disciplined hard worker.  Serious reliable and responsible. He was probably the rock of the doors. Jim was the flagrant leader and wild man poster boy poet. Ray always wore suits in true Capricorn style. He was also a serious film student, meeting  Jim Morrison at UCLA film school.

Ray had JUPITER at 9 degrees Pisces also in the 2nd house of resources. Jupiter is the traditional ruler of  PISCES and SAGITTARIUS. Pisces is the sign of all artists, musicians, creatives. His musical resource was SPIRIT itself. May have been some addictions issues there as well. Playing the organ, an instrument usually reserved for churches also shows the religious nature of his art.

SATURN at 14 degrees ARIESs at the bottom of his chart on the IC.

Ray ws serious about doing his own thing.  His dad must have had a strong influence on him. He had great energy and initiative and a unique communications style. He was meant to be an entrepreneur and the King of his own domain.

PLUTO at the 29th Critical degree of CANCER he was born at the end of the Cancer Pluto generation. He was emotionally intense and loyal, Protective of his friends and family and his privacy.

NEPTUNE in the 9th house is in VIRGO at 22 degrees Retro.

Neptune is the highest elevated planet and shows him as a creative/musical teacher, film maker, philosopher, globe-trotter, eclectic in his approach. A  mystical man,a dreamer, a romantic, a work aholic, a perfectionist who honed his craft to the Nth degree.

URANUS is at 14 degrees TAURUS in his 5th house of creativity

Uranus rules his Aquarius SUN & Mercury. The signature of an original pioneering person, who walked their own path. The 5th house is the house of creative self-expression as a gift of Love.

Ray’s NORTH NODE was at 12 degrees of SCORPIO in the 10th house.

A SCORPIO north Node says that Ray’s highest goal was to be an agent of deep emotional change, rebirth, transformation. Death, the shadow, the deep dark secrets, taboo’s, was part of his worldly fame. His music was the accompaniment for Jim Morrison’s deep dark sexy poetry/songs. Ray’s playing was an integral part of the musical depths to which the Door’s took its listener’s. It was dark, taboo, THE END. 


Ray died of bile cancer in Germany. He was private about his struggle with Cancer. He left his wife of 45 years, a son and three grandchildren. The recent SOLAR ECLIPSE of May 9 was at 19 degrees TAURUS and fell in a square- hard aspect between his Mercury and SUN. Solar eclipses change the nature of a person’s Identity. The Uranus- Pluto square also fell 2 degrees from his SATURN close to his IC. Endings, roots.  NEPTUNE at 5 degrees PISCES was squaring his MOON in the 12th house. A beautiful return call home to spirit.

Thanks for contributing so much to American POP music. YOu are an icon. You will always be remembered.
