Olympic origin, Goddess Races and the Tarot

The history we’ve been taught is 99% lies. Talk about Colonization, originated in Patriarchy and the 1% who rewrote to suit their needs. The #Olympics were founded by female partheno- genesis priestesses who raced in honor of Hera. The Olympian Games started in The Heraean Games, dedicated to Goddess Hera, the queen of the Olympian gods, later Zeus’ wife, was the 1st official women’s athletic competition to be held in the Olympic stadium at Elis. The 6th century BC, games were held in the Olympic year itself, prior to the men’s games.

The 1st woman champion of the Olympics was Cynisca, A Spartan woman who won the four-horse chariot race twice, in 396 and 392 BC. She was honoured by a bronze statue of her with chariot and horses, “The Chariot” in Tarot #7 erected in the Temple of Zeus in Olympia. The statue had an inscription declaring that she was “the only woman in all Hellas to have won this crown”.

“The ancient Olympic Games began in the year 776 BC, when Koroibos, a cook from the nearby city of Elis, won the stadion race, a 600 foot long race. Some literary traditions, this was the only athletic event of the games for the first 13 Olympic festivals or until 724 BC. From 776 BC, the Games were held at Olympia every four years for almost 12 centuries.”

Contrary evidence, -WHICH IS ALWAYS THE REAL TRUTH- both literary and archaeological, suggests that the games may have existed at Olympia much earlier than this date, perhaps as early as the 10th or 9th century BC.  A series of bronze tripods found at Olympia, some date to the 9th century BC,  suggested that these tripods-famous for the TRIPLE GODDESS-HEKATE, or the Maiden, Mother, Chrone may have been prizes for some of the early events at Olympia

“The Temple of Hera, or Heraion, is an ancient Archaic Greek temple at Olympia, Greece, that was dedicated to Hera, queen of the Greek Gods. It was the oldest temple at Olympia and one of the most venerable in all Greece.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Temple_of_Hera,_Olympia

i also feel that the origin of the word Heretic was originally from HERA.

“A heresy is a belief that doesn’t agree with the official tenets of a particular religion; heresy is the maintaining of such contrary beliefs.

Heresy can be used figuratively: to disagree with the school committee’s decisions is considered pure heresy by the faculty. You’ll often come across this word in a religious context — the Latin root haeresis, “school of thought or sect,” was used by Christian writers to mean “unorthodox sect or belief.” This comes from the Greek hairesis, “a taking or choosing,” from hairein, “to choose.” A person who chooses to believe in heresies is called a heretic.” https://www.vocabulary.com/dictionary/heresy

This is the Instagram article that my friend and colleague Michelle White Hart who is part of the Womb Technology Group posted about the origin of the Olympics https://www.instagram.com/p/CR7TieMBvj6/?utm_medium=share_sheet quoting from scholar Marguerite Rigoglioso PHD. books -Virgin Mother Goddesses of Antiquity and The Cult of Divine Birth in Ancient Greece https://www.amazon.ca/Virgin-Mother-Goddesses-Antiquity-Rigoglioso/dp/113729342X/ref=pd_lpo_2?pd_rd_i=113729342X&psc=1

When you visit the Temple of Hera at Olympia, you’ll notice small vertical cuts on the columns of the east façade of Heraion. According to scholars, these cuts were made in ancient times to host the portraits of the young girls who had won running races in honour of Hera, Zeus’ wife, who was also worshipped in Olympia.

NOTE: I will be out of town from July 29- August 8 Teaching for two weekends at the Grail Springs Wellness Retreat. I will do my August Tarot and Astrology Preview live online on August 1 for the Cosmic Intelligence Agency live on FB at 8:00 pm.

I am thinking of doing a pre-recorded New Moon in LEO astrology magic workshop.

Would you be interested in that?

Emotional insights and Release

July 24 the Aquarius Full moon’s energies linger and remain in Aquarius until late on the 25th.Mercury in Cancer trine Neptune in Pisces At the Magical master numbers 22°

These two positively aspected planets Bring intuitive insights into long forgotten emotional and family issues gestating in the soul and unconscious, not just from your childhood but from past lives too.

Remember that Mercury in Cancer and Neptune in Pisces are always wanting to nurture and rescue others. The song Emotional Rescue by the Rolling Stones comes to mind. This aspect is about receiving. Open yourself up to heal yourself now as everybody’s wounds you see outside of you are projections of your own inner wounds. We are all all PTSD, ‘it’s a fact of being born a human in this hard Saturnian 🪐 world.

July 25 as Mercury opposes Pluto in Capricorn you can excavate even further into the unconscious realms on a more physical and visceral way. Remember that the body holds all the emotional and pre-verbal, pre-intellectual programming of the child.

Neptune rules the 12th house of the Unconscious, as does Pluto the Lord of the Underworld, the land of shades or shadows. This is the realm of the the ancestors and their knowledge and wisdom. Pluto in Capricorn and Neptune are sextile (60 degree aspect) to each other. We can access our unconscious ancestral knowledge in visions, meditation, dreams and in our bones. This is an incredible time to heal so many old toxic emotional wounds.

The Full Moon is a time of completion. Bring those strong emotions up, weep and wail as you must, get them all up and out and release them. Remember you were innocent. Record these by writing in a journal.

Aromatherapy, is a wonderful tool to help in processing emotional issues, used by the ancients. Using “forgive” a DoTerra blend is recommended. Remember you do not have to rush into forgiving anyone. If you would like to purchase this contact me. Cleansing with a healing full moon bath is recommended.

Brain fog is one literal expression of this energy. If you feel like ” nothing is real, ” like John Lennon of The Beatles song Strawberry Fields’s Forever, then “nothing to get hung up about” is also the answer. Let it all float downstream. This is also a great time to let creativity flow, tapping into the great stream of collective unconscious energy.

Meditation, visualization and affirmations with full emotions behind them can create miraculous results. Pay attention to you dreams tonight.

The Sun God, Apollo, rides his golden chariot into his own HOME sign, where he is happiest to shine the brightest. The Sun is a Star.

“Every man and every woman is a Star. “-Aleister Crowley from the Book of the Law 1904.  We need to realise our own star stuff in the cosmic circle.

SUN ASPECTS

July 22/23 SUN inconjuncts JUPITER on AQUARIUS FULL MOON

August 1 SUN MERCURY CONJUNCTION at 9 LEO

Aug. 1/2 SUN OPPOSES SATURN, 10 degrees AQUARIUS-karmic tests

Aug. 4 SUN trine CHIRON in ARIES at 12 degrees -wounded healer

Aug. 6 SUN square URANUS in TAURUS at 14 degrees-chaotic

Aug, 14/15 SUN inconjunct NEPTUNE in PISCES at 22 degrees-tough

Aug, 17 Sun inconjunct PLUTO at 24 LEO- tough  

Aug. 19 SUN opposes JUPITER at 27 degrees – a very positive aspect

The 5th sign is akin to the ancient 5th element which is SPIRIT,  always symbolized by the SUN.  Ancient Egyptians and many indigenous cultures, the Inka in Peru, still worship the Sun God as Inti.

For the Leo month 10 things to ROAR about.

1. SHINE YOUR LIGHT.  You are the source, shine your light for all to see. You are the main player, the director and the star of your own life. Be Proud of who you are.

2. DRAMA:  Be aware of all the dramas you create or allow into your life.  Why do you need them? What does it feed in you? You have the will to change it.

3. BE THE STAR. Act like you are someone you admire and want to be like. Get your courage up and really GO FOR IT. Take charge of your  life. You have the will. 

4. HEART CENTERED: Stay in your heart, be in love with the world, and with yourself. POSITIVE SELF-ESTEEM. Treat yourself well, healthy pride based on positive self- esteem is good. 

5. EGO: It is important to have a healthy ego. The banishing, torturing and negating the ego in many spiritual and Christian teachings is a twisted Patriarchal shadow. We need our egos as they are our identity but they must not be what we identify with, or all ow the ego to run our consciousness. The ego is really the little, fearful, mortal ” I” acting like he is a king. The Emperorer’s New Clothes is a fairytale teaching story about not letting your ego control you. Keep you ego in check like you would a stubborn dog. In an Age of vanity and superficial Selfies you need to be aware of how your Higher Self, your Soul Star is your real identity. The more selfless the healthier. The more you give to others, the happier you will be.

6. PLAY – your inner child needs to play all the time. When is the last time your did finger-painting, or made sand castles?  I know the world is pretty heavy, but you can still take it lightly. 

7. CHILDREN: Do something nice for an underprivileged child, so many are denied the most basic of life’s necessities while we mainly live like King’s and Queen’s here in the West. Good time to focus on the question, Do i want to have a child? Be a parent? Why yes or no? 

8. GET CREATIVE- It’s our natural state. Our ancestors always painted, danced, sang.  Be Happy. 

9.  STAY POSITIVE, Practice positive thoughts and affirmations. Banish negative thoughts. Bring down the Light. You have the power in your response to everything that is thrown at you.

10. BE CONSCIOUS of everything you do. The LIGHT symbolizes clarity of consciousness. We were all originally made from LIGHT, we are the LIGHT. You are the source of your life. No one has any real authority or power over you.  Spread your light.  This BIG LIGHT Of mine, I’m gonna let it shine.

LEO is the Card of STRENGTH in the TAROT #11 or #8 

The card of STRENGTH traditionally has a woman opening the jaws of a lion. She has a LEMNISCATE or INFINITY symbol hovering over her head. There are thousands of variations on this symbol. Sometimes it is #8 or #11. Too complicated to get into now.

The Card symbolizes the will over the beastial, lower animal nature, greed, survival, vanity, jealousy, and everything which LOWERS one’s consciousness.

That ability of the Feminine- the Soul, LOVE to control the lower animal nature is a mind/heart/spirit focus which is called KUNDALINI energy.  

The highest SOLAR consciousness is available to us at this time. The  SOLAR LOGOS as Theososphist Alice Bailey referred to it, is the highest Light Master teachings available the same as Buddha, Christ etc.

Venus in Virgo, strong Warrioress

Venus enters VIRGO July 21-August 16 a very quick sprint in the earthy, workaholic, perfectionist, service oriented sign where we love to get our work, diet, our health, our budgets, and all of our shit together.

Venus was known as the Goddess of LOVE and WAR in antiquity. The Sign Virgo was originally associated, now archaically as VIRAGO a WOMAN of “masculine ” strength, whole Goddess/woman, a Warrioress. Virgo, symbolized by the Virgin Harvest Goddess, is a very ancient Constellation. Their Mode and Element is Mutable earth, they are in their bodies most definitely and they are adaptable.

“A virago is a woman who demonstrates exemplary and heroic qualities. The word comes from the Latin word virāgō meaning vigorous’ from vir meaning “man” or “man-like” to which the suffix -āgō is added, a suffix that creates a new noun of the third declension with feminine grammatical gender.” -Wikipedia

 “A woman, however, if exceptional enough could earn the title virago. In doing so, she surpassed the expectations for what was believed possible for her gender and embodied masculine-like aggression[4] and/or excellence. Virago, then, was a title of respect and admiration. In Christianity, a nun or holy woman who had become equal in divinity to male monks through practiced celibacy, exemplary religious practice and devotion, and intact virginity, was considered to have surpassed the limitations of her femaleness and was called virago.”

The word virago has almost always had an association with cultural gender transgression. There are recorded instances of viragos (such as Joan of Arc) fighting battles, wearing men’s clothing, or receiving the tonsure.[3]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virago

Virgo Constellation Astrology

Sidney Hall Richard Rouse Bloxam (designer) Restoration by Adam Cuerden, Sidney Hall – Urania’s Mirror – Virgo, marked as public domain, more details on Wikimedia Commons

VIRGO is the largest Constellation. What we know as The Virgin Goddess as Demeter to the Greeks, was originally known as VIRAGO. A woman of “masculine” strength or spirit; a female warrior. We all know that VENUS was known both as the Goddess of LOVE AND WAR, so before the patriarchy really imbalanced her obvious physical strength, Virgo meant VIRAGO. The latter Virgin Goddess originally meant she was a parthenogensis Goddess too capable of self-fertility. She is not a-sexual. These women were sacred sexual Priestesses.

Whole and complete unto herself, needing no man at all. Virgo is the Great Mother, the Goddess of the earth and the Harvest shown holding an ear of corn, relating to mysteries of life death and transformation, part of the Eleusinian mysteries of rebirth. 

You just need to be very pure and hygienic, dedicated and focussed if you are going to be able to give birth parthenogenically or to be with a Virgo of either sex.

Virgo is apparently the most populated Astrology sign according to statistics.

Out with the VENUS in LEO drama and the passion, the power-mongering, Royalty treatments. Even though Sun enters LEO July 22, 2021 and It’s all about ME attitude. We need a break from all that Venus and MARS in LEO drama.

Venus in Virgo, in the 6th house naturally, is in it’s “FALL” because VENUS is considered to be exalted in PISCES so sheis considered weak in the 6th sign. 

Venus in Virgo’s is service-oriented “How can I help you” peeps.” For a Virgo work is their religion.

Virgo’s are not generally very emotional or passionate they have practical emotional control. This placement is very modest, earthy, the servants traditionally. The waiters and waitresses of the Zodiac. They are workaholics, perfectionists, intelligent, organized, budget-conscious, worriers. Totally opposite to LEO.

VENUS in Virgo

imparts VENUSian values- feminine, creative, relationships, values, to all things VIRGO.

Venus in Virgo peeps are the workaholics and perfectionists of the ZODIAC. Occasionally they appear messy but they’ve got it all organized in their heads. My Dad was a totally messy Virgo. They are sensitive and easily hurt.

It’s Marie Kondo declutter as a spiritual act time for sure.

HEALTH

Health is a huge issue for Virgo/Venus in Virgo as they do worry a lot and that affects their health. They often have underlying health issues. Their weakest body part is the Upper intestines and they should avoid drinking alcohol, greasy, heavy and spicy foods. They are very disciplined and health conscious so they are often working out, doing yoga, on special food diets.  They often work in the health care system and can be doctor’s, dentists, kinesiologists, chiropractors, natural health practitioners, administrators or salespeople with the health care system.

Naturally accountants or anyone who pays attention to details, statistics and the like. They are usually excellent money managers, and very tight with money, they  love budgets. They love “freebies”

With Venus in Virgo, you gotta love your work. If not find the work that you do love. 

DATING DURING VENUS IN VIRGO SEASON

women, love, values turn to earthy practical shoes and budget shopping, wearing brown or harvest ochres or golden shades. Women dress more conservatively business-like, more modest, sensible pumps, blue jeans, simple and clean styling.

Virgo’s are very focussed, detail-oriented, nitpicky, perfectionist, never satisfied, workaholics -you will have to pry them away from their desks, as they are married to their job’s and they may avoid intimacy because they love information, social media, especially hands-on books, etc.

Mercury rules VIRGO’s we must always remember that. They are intellectual, info gatherers, and they will analyze your potential first.

VIRGO is the sign that is associated with THE HERMIT in the TAROT

They don’t have to be all alone but they are private, humble, service-oriented people.

You don’t have to splurge on an expensive date to impress a Virgo. Take them to a health-conscious, organic nouvelle cuisine simplistic resto.  They love places that seem to offer good value, as they do not have expensive tastes necessarily. They like tasteful things and they love bargains. They like spas.

Virgo’s love to read and talk, they like Hi-brow culture, a good play, see lectures, or matinee movies.

Remember they are down to earth, nothing too fussy types. They love to and need to be in nature. Camping, hiking, bicycling, walk in the countryside.

VENUS opposes JUPITER July 22

a very Beneficial aspect for practical dreaming.

MARS follows VENUS into Virgo JULY 29.

VENUS INCONJUNCTS SATURN on July 30

An awkard day of disconnecting from feelings too much.

During this time your upper digestion will likely be more sensitive. Especially when Mars also enters Virgo and agitates Virgo’s already sensitive digestive tract. Do watch your diet very carefully, eating well and being meticulous about what you eat.  Good time to initiate a new cleaner, more plant-based diet too. The body works best with natural medicines.

August 1 VENUS inconjuncts CHIRON IN ARIES

These 150 degree aspects are when the planets and elements don’t understand or see each other. You may feel wounded and vulnerable. Self care is very important.

5G Conspiracy Nonsense – The Hooded Sage

From Stuart Wilde, my old teacher’s protégée Kris Krepcic. I thought this would be timely with Lilith entering Gemini July 18 – 5G Conspiracy Nonsense – The Hooded Sage
— Read on www.thehoodedsage.com/2020/06/5g-conspiracy-nonsense/

Chiron Retrograde in Aries, healing time.

Chiron turns Retrograde at 12 degrees Aries from July 16 until December 19th. That’s a five month long period where we can heal our wounds if we surrender into them. That is the only way to get healed. We cannot defend ourselves against our own pain and vulnerability. The greatest strength is being vulnerable. There is no war except our internal split between matter and spirit.

Toxic masculinity started a long time ago. It was ratified in the Old Testament with splitting off from the Mother Earth and the Divine Feminine to conquer and control what was scary and more powerful than men’s physical strengths. The warrior and top down Hierarchies are woven into our culture so we think it is natural but it’s not.

A true warrior knows when to be vulnerable and intimate and honor his own nurturing Divine Feminine and to honor it in women and to create real intimacy and joy in relationships.

OLANI a British influencer had a question on Twitter July 14 which asked When did you first know he hated you? The tweets from mainly black women were heartbreaking. Many women tweeted that they were beaten when pregnant and their babies died. That is toxic masculinity, immature insecure, narcissistic, macho. These men are in deep need of healing and society needs to support that. Women need to stop relating to men who see women as sex objects for their narcistic immature control too.

CHIRON was a wise healer in Greek Mythology. Part centaur, part human, part immortal, in Greek mythology he was a revered figure and taught the human Asclepius the arts of healing. There were numerous healing temples in ancient Greece founded by Asclepius based on Chiron’s teachings. There temples healed using plant medicines and dreams.

Modern medicine honors Chiron and Asclepius by using the same symbol of healing, the Caduceus, a symbol with a short staff entwined by two serpents, sometimes surmounted by wings while the Rod of Asclepius has a single snakeChiron is immortalized as the Constellation Centaurus. He was discovered November 1, 1977.

This time is also a Mini healing crisis and we may feel that salt is being rubbed into our wounds.

Chiron, Wounded Healer Centaur/Shaman turns Retrograde in ARIES

@ 12 degrees 55 minutes of the fiery warrior sign until December 19th @ 8 degrees 26 minutes Aries.

This 5 month period is a time to heal TOXIC MASCULINITY, and our anger in general which is intergenerational PTSD anger, our instinctive defences and any walls we have put up to being intimate within others and with ourselves. There is unconscious toxic anger and defence against being open and intimate. Men have been taught to be warriors strong silent loners independent and women have been taught to be vulnerable, dependent and weak. Venus was originally the Goddess of LOVE & WAR. Therefore MARS must also have a Strong warrior and A passionate lover and defender of Venus.

PAY SPECIAL ATTENTION TO RELATIONSHIP ISSUES OCTOBER 1 to October-13

The SUN in LIBRA opposes CHIRON from September 26.

It’s exact OCTOBER at 3 degrees exact on October 3rd until October 12

MARS opposes CHIRON in LIBRA October 1st exactly at 10 degrees

but is in effect from September 19/20 and until October 14

This can indicate a painful and difficulty time in love relationships of all kinds, and relationships imbalances everywhere. Defenses and anger will be high. Its a great opportunity to get counselling for yourself or couples counselling. The “I” versus “WE ARE” is on. Justice is a LIBRA trait and issues of injustice will be revisited with angry mobs screaming for heads to roll.

Anger is energy, there is righteous anger and justifiable defences. Use your righteous anger,as it is just energy and transmute it into fighting for just causes and defending the defenseless. Children, vulnerable women and men, the poor and elderly, those who have disabilities and any downtrodden cause, that you feel passionately about.

Chiron is transiting ARIES from February 18, 2019 until April 14, 2027.

That is a 8 years, a large block of time to work on healing those old PATRIARCHAL, warrior, aggressive, competitive, defensive, instant fix energies. Aries is Fast Food, and cars, fast living, impulsive, macho, independent, dangerous, adventurous, competitive, overly aggressive, warpath, anger. It relates to modern capitalist consumer driven, massive consumption, corporation driven culture.

Remember that all Retrograde planetary times are Good Medicine, as the Rx symbol signifies. Especially Chiron Retrograde. Everything that starts with the prefix Re is what the retrograde period is all about. Rest, renew, reflect, regenerate, release, revolutionize, revisit,reneg,  etc.

Chiron in ARIES will help us to heal our old wounds, so be willing to lay down your arms WARRIORS OF TOXIC MASCULINITY. This is an opportune time to open up. It’s killing you to be so tough too. Gangsta. 

Chiron the Wounded Healer has a 50-51 year orbit. At 25/26 is your Chiron opposition, vulnerable year-long time in your life. Pay attention as Chiron turns Retro in Aries now. You would have Chiron in Libra and relationship hurts and wounds are where the healing is.

Take this time to look within. Do the healing work. Yes it will be painful, but ARIES can pull out all the stops and be courageous. If you go deeply into the wound

We can all feel wounded simply be being born into this human earthly realm. Aries is fired up and PISCES the sign of spiritual source is just behind it. Its in our unconscious. We can all access spirit when you stop playing tough.

LOOK AT WHERE 3- 18 degrees ARIES is in your chart. Those are the degrees Chiron is affecting directly but also any other Cardinal Signs form those degrees Cancer, Libra and Capricorn.

Take this time to look within. Do the healing work. Yes it will be painful, but ARIES can pull out all the stops and be courageous and has the energy to push on. If you go deeply into the wound surrendering into it- you may fear it will kill you, but it won’t, You are much stronger than your ego thinks you are. You will come out of a deep healing crisis, more whole after this journey. You then earn your stripes as a WOUNDED HEALER/SHAMAN, support working or counsellor with wounded Veterans much like Prince Harry and his Invictus Games.
