Lilith Moon magic today

The Moon in SAGITTARIUS conjuncts the GALACTIC CENTER @ 27 degrees + LILITH at 28 degrees over the next 4 hours October 24.
This is the best time to tune into LILITH’s energy. The “first feminist” Lilith is behind the #MeTo” campaign. 
The best time to do sexual healing to ask for guidance to make magic potions to Lilith is now.
If you want to contact Lilith directly in meditation do it now.
Her symbols are the owl. 
She is the Death bringing Goddess of menstruation. 
If you have problems with your periods then you need to tune into Lilith-she went to live in a cave by the Red Sea. Retreat into your holy womb while you are menstruating. You shouldn’t be out in public for three days. That is the ancient tradition. Because you are totally psychic tuned into the Dreamtime and able to contact your own YONI wisdom directly. That is why periods became “taboo” by the Patriarchy. Tabu originally meant Sacred. 
The Black Madonna is related in some ways to Lilith.

Lammas: Now the Dying Must Begin

August 1-2 marks the mid-point between summer and fall. Known as Lammas, or Lughnasadh (LOO-nesah), it’s one of the 8 ‘Cross Quarter Days of the year. I am quoted in this article. 

Lughnasadh wicca pagan Tara Greene

Lammas or Lughnasadh can be also celebrated on AUGUST 2nd. I am quoted in this article.
Technically the SUN is at the 15th degree of LEO on AUG 8th for those who like to be actually aligned with the passage of the SUN.

August 1 is known as LAMMAS in the wiccan/pagan calendar of the 8 rounds of the wheel of the year

Lammas is a Christianized version meaning “loaf Mass.”

Lughnasadh is its other name. We are half way to the AUTUMN Equinox now.

This feastival honors the Grain gods. It’s a very very ancient festival. From the races before the Celts.

At this time of year, The Bees are Buzzing, or should be. Where have all the bees gone? Monsanto?

It is traditionally celebrated as the wake of the Sun KING, who is dying now in the waning of his own Light. The Goddess cuts down the sun king. We are in the Feminine half of the year since Summer solstice.

British witches celebrate it on August 6 this is a cross quarter station in the round of the year.  It occurs in relationship to Leo the Lion, the Royal watcher related to Archangel Raphael and the heart chakra and the deep emerald-green colour.

It was a time for communal festivities, crafts, jams, plays, dances, what we think of as a Renaissance fair.

A highlight of these festivals was a wheel set afire and rolled down a hill called  “Catherine wheels. ” Based on a mythological figure, her worshippers were the CATHARS or Cathari= heretics who were routed out by the Catholic Church. The word catharsis comes from the same Latin root.

BONFIRES are always part of this festival perhaps to give the Sun more light.

Celebrations include making cookie people figures and star cookies are baked in celebration.  It is time of anxious waiting, we are not yet assured of a harvest which will keep the people alive. It is a time to free oneself from FEAR.  A snake dance is created going counter clock wise, bread figures are thrown into the bonfire to symbolize the burning up of one’s fears. Then one says what one hopes to harvest.

Symbols of STARS are held up. The High Priestess would say,

“MAY THE STAR OF HOPE BE WITHIN US ALWAYS.”

The conveners would eat the star cookies and celebrate.

Like the Tarot image of THE STAR-#17 THOTH deck

The STar Thoth Tara Greenealways a message of Hope- when you wish upon a star.

Think about how your seeded ideas and goals have manifested since Spring EQUINOX. Measure what has grown high, what has blossomed, what hasn’t. Take stock of your life on all levels, as a measure. You are now in the home stretch of greatest growth. Use the time wisely.

Enjoy your Lammas celebrations.  I will be having a small ceremony with my family. We send blessings to you and yours.

Witches Fire festival, Celebrating Goddess Brigid

Feb. 2 is a very powerful cross-quarter day in the 8 spoked wheel of the year. Goddess Brigid’s Day is celebrated as IMBOLC or CANDLEMASS, an ancient pagan, Wiccan Festival of the quickening of the light. Catholics, who had to add the ancient holidays onto their new Catholic ones, celebrate this as the Feast of the Purification of Mary.

Popularly known as GROUNDHOG DAY, the movie starring Bill Murray is a classic film based on some very spiritual ideas about Karma.

Jung,4 elements, tara Greene

This day marks the Goddesses’ coming out for the first time after giving birth to the SUN at Winter solstice. Visualize this time as the baby sun nursing from the Goddess’s breast. Traditionally all women had a 6 week “lying in” period after giving birth where they stayed in their homes with their newborns to ensure the mother-child bond and to make the infant stronger. Mother and child were tended in all ways with food, and any other needs by family friends the community, or doulas.

This day is a Sabbat of purification after the shut-in life of Winter. A festival of light and fertility, it was once marked in Europe with huge blazes and fires everywhere. Fire symbolizes our own illumination and inspiration as well as light and heat. Also called the Feast of Torches, Oimelc, Lupercalia, Feast of Pan, Snowdrop Festival, and the Feast of the Waxing Light.

The old Scandinavian custom was to wear crowns of lit candles but most practitioners carry candles during their invocations and ceremonies.

This date celebrates the changing of the Goddess from the CHRONE back to the MAIDEN. It celebrates the very earliest signs of Spring and the noticeable lengthening of the days in the Northern hemisphere.

 

It is also a day of celebrating the Celtic Goddess Brigid. Brigid is the Goddess of Poetry, Healing, Smithcraft, and Midwifery.

Groundhog Day Imbolc

She is a triple Goddess, honor her in all her aspects. Her symbols are serpents, representing the sacred fire of sexuality. All ancient Goddesses knew the sacred secrets of Tantric sexuality, healing, and transformation. Brigid governed wells. There is still a holy well in Ireland where she is workshopped. This is both a fire and water celebration, the balance of masculine and feminine energies. 

This is a time for communing with Brigid, for tending to and the lighting of your own sacred flame, the KUNDALINI fire of sexual tantric transformation. 

This is a good time for initiations, into covens or self-initiations. Initiations of all kinds are the order of the day.

The TAROT card that would accompany this Festival would be the ACE OF WANDS

The planets are well placed to support the fire and the water.

The MOON is in ARIES for most of the day in PST and EST. Mars is strong in ARIES. The Moon trines Saturn in Fiery SAGITTARIUS in the morning. VENUS is at the last critical degree of watery PISCES. JUNO, the feminine form of genius is at the last degree of SAGITTARIUS. CERES is at the last degree of ARIES. 

As a Purification Day

Use water and salt to purify yourself. Wash your hands and face in salt water. Sprinkle salt water which you have blessed charging it. Sprinkle it in every corner of your home. Water is the most important element. Water transmutes all hardness, breaks down anything over time. Water also symbolizes the emotions. We need to purify our emotional bodies as well. 

The waters of the earth these days needs our help and intentions. The oceans are polluted from Fukushima, from oil spills, fracking and toxins being poured into the rivers and lakes. Send your intention to see the earth’s waters running clear pure, cleansed. Bathing in Himalayan salt water while burning red candles would be appropriate.  

Brigid, GODDESS OF CREATIVITY

Do something creative, read poetry, suspend your critical mind and allow your left brain consciousness to take over and allow a pure stream of consciousness to write a poem, sing, or dance. Dedicate a future work to Her.

IMBOLC RITUAL

At sunset or just after a ritual, light every lamp in the house – if only for a few moments. Or, light candles in each room in honor of the Sun’s rebirth. If snow lies on the ground outside, walk in it for a moment, recalling the warmth of summer. With your projective hand, trace an image of the Sun on the snow.

FOODS TO EAT

Imbolc marks the first calving and dairy dishes are traditionally consumed. You could eat yogurt or sour cream. If you are on non-dairy, honor the cows with a statue of a cow, or transmute your non-dairy soya, oat milk, almond milk or coconut milk to  honor the cows and sheep. Hot fiery foods definitely match up with the fiery celebratory nature of this feast.All curries and all dishes made with red peppers, chilies, onions, leeks, shallots, garlic or chives are appropriate. It is traditional to consume Spiced red wines and dishes containing raisins, symbols of the sun’s energies.

It is traditional to consume Spiced red wines and dishes containing raisins, symbols of the sun’s energies.

Traditional grains were eaten to celebrate the growth of future grains. Serve crepes pancakes, cakes, and breads. Again if you are on a PALEO, no carbs and no grains diet, use spelt, Kamut, almond, rice, corn, amaranth or whatever and transmute it to honor the ancient grains.  Put out a loaf of bread on your windowsill like they did in Ireland traditionally on Brigid’s day. An ear of corn was also set out. Wheat stalks are woven into X-shaped crosses to serve as charms to protect the home from fires and lightning. Clean out your fireplace.

IMBOLC RITUAL SUPPLIES
Incense: Rosemary, Frankincense, Myrrh, Cinnamon
Decorations: Corn Dolly or Spring Flowers
Colors: White, Orange, Red

Ritual for Imbolc/Candlemas

A white flower or snow in a crystal or a paper cut out snowflake to symbolize winter. You could safely set this on fire and let it burn as a symbol of the spring coming.

You will need an orange candle anointed with cinnamon, frankincense or rosemary oil (unlit), red candle to represent the elements and your ritual supplies.

HOW TO

Arrange the altar, light the candles and censer, and cast the Circle. Call in the elements.

Invoke the Goddess and God.

Say such words as the following:
“This is the time of the feast of FIRE/torches/wands,
When every lamp blazes and shines
To welcome the rebirth of the Sun God.
Celebrate the Goddess, Celebrate the God;
All the Earth celebrates, beneath its mantle of sleep.

Light the orange candle from the red candle on the altar. Slowly walk the circle clockwise/sunwise, holding the candle before you. Say these or similar words:

“All the land is wrapped in winter.
The air is chilled and frost envelopes the Earth.
But Lord of the Sun, Horned One of animals and wild places,
Unseen you have been reborn Of the gracious Mother Goddess,
Lady of all fertility.
Hail Great God!  Hail and welcome!”

Stop before the altar, holding up the candle. Gaze at its flame. Scry with the fire.  Visualize your life blossoming with creativity, with renewed energy and strength.

If you need to look into the future or the past, now is an ideal time

SET NEW INTENTIONS

Make new commitments on this day.

Aquarius Full Moon,Aug 1,LAMMAS,Tarot, The Star, Merkabah spiritual Astrology by Tara Greene

Aquarius Full Moon 2012

click on chart to view larger

YEs I know it looks very complex

RARE 6 pointed star formation Merkaba on this AQUARIUS FULL MOON

This AQUARIUS FULL MOON is full of TAROT symbolism as well as planetary Merkaba formation, and on Pagan holiday LAMMAS, very  potent synchronous signs.

 The symbol for the sign of Aquarius in the 22 MAJOR TRUMPS of the TAROT is called the STAR.

#17 The Star Aquarius Thoth tarot

The Thoth Tarot deck which I use
#17 Aquarius The STAR

I had looked at the chart and saw that there appeared two GRAND TRINES in FIRE  and AIR signs forming a rare 6 pointed star formation. Popularly known as a  JEWISH STAR, seen as the symbol of Israel, it is a symbol of the as above so below, Hermetic maxim. IT is also the symbol  of spiritual realization. The 6 pointed interlocking star is known of in Buddhist, Theosophical, Hindu and other world religions as a powerful symbol.

The 6 pointed star is the symbol of the number 6 TRUMP card in the MAjor Arcana, The LOVERS in the TAROT.

The formation in 3-d is also known as a MERKABA a spiritual energetic and meditation vehicle for elevating the soul to other dimensions. The Merkaba is also a CHARIOT, the symbol # 7 in the TAROT. Spiritual teacher Drunvalo Melchizedek speaks about learning to master the Merkaba ascension vehicle in meditations.

August 1 is known as LAMMAS in the wiccan/pagan calendar of the 8 rounds of the wheel of the year

Lughnasad is its other name. We are half way to the AUTUMN Equinox now. It is traditionally celebrated as the wake of the Sun KING, who is dying now in the waning of his own Light. cookie people figures and star cookies are baked in celebration.  It is time of anxious waiting, we are not yet assured of a harvest which will keep the people alive. It is  a time to free oneself from FEAR.  A snake dance is created going counter clock wise, bread figures are thrown into the bonfire to symbolize the burning up of one’s fears. Then one says what one hopes to harvest. Symbols of STARS are held up. The High Priestess would say,

MAY THE STAR OF HOPE BE WITHIN US ALWAYS.

The coveners would eat the star cookies and celebrate.

So i found it highly synchronistic to find the rare 6 pointed star formation in the aspects of the Full MOON/Lammas chart.

The 6 pointed Star is formed from The Moon at 10 degrees+ Aquarius, trine to Jupiter at 10 degrees+ of GEMINI trine to Mars at 16 degrees+of LIBRA. Yes i know it is officially over by one degree to qualify as an official TRINE angle of 5 degrees but the Moon is involved enlarging the specifics. I feelit is too powerful a sign to overlook. 

The Fiery GRAND TRINE is formed by the NOrth NOde at 2 degrees of Sagittarius, trine Uranus at 8 degrees Retrograde of Aries, {you could also include Asteroid Athena at 11 degrees of Aries} to the Sun at 10 degrees of Leo and includes Mercury Retrograde at 3 degrees of LEO.

Because both the SUN and the MOON  are involved the Trine angles are enlarged.

This is a very auspicious symbol. The lasts major Merkaba formations were way back in 2004 I believe.

This one is composed of 6 planets and the North Node.

The formation isnt visible in the sky but only when the geometric angles are seen on paper as below.

That’s a lot of fire and air power.

Aquarius wants us to leave the old outmoded laws, structures, belief systems  behind, notably Saturn at 23 degrees of Libra is not involve in the configuration. Although Venus at 25 degree of GEMINI is conjunct the NORTH STAR Polaris and trine to Saturn.

All over the world we are seeing the inflamed effects of the Uranus Pluto squares which have been active since 2011 in Egypt, Tunisia, in Syria still Iran and other places. The Age of Aquarius has just begun.. the next Uranus Pluto exact squares are September 19 at 6 degrees 57 minutes of Aries and Capricorn.

Merkaba Meditation

The effects of the Full MOON last till the next New Moon which will be in LEO on AUGust 17th

All full moon’s are time of completion. A time to be thankful. Sit in MEdiation and breathe deeply as the Full Moon is exact.

It’s at 8:28 pm PDT and tomorrow August 2nd at 3:28 am GMT. or do your best.

 The point is to tune in and use the ancient Lammas day celebration energy as well.

 Follow your breath in slow deep natural inbreaths through your nose, holding gently for a few seconds then breathing out through your mouth. Continue this for a few minutes until you sink deeper into relaxation.

Breathe through the bottom of your spine slowly opening the root chakra, then the 2nd 3rd 4th 5th 6th and 7th crown chakras.

Below you at the iron ore core of the earth imagine growing deep roots out of the bottom of your spine to that molten iron core deep within the heart flame of Mother earth. Send your intention down there first to anchor and ground yourself.

Above you there is an 8th chakra of golden light about a foot or two above the crown. After you connect with the root chakra in the earth bring up your attention through the root chakra and up the main channel and out the top of your head to this golden orb. Once you feel connected to the golden orb send your intention out further to the 9th chakra that is connected to the ALL THAT IS or AIN SOPH AUR.

Your intention is enough to take you there.

Then as you sit peacefully and centered ask your higher guides to build the Merkaba chamber around you in imperishable golden indigo light.

 See the merkabah form around you. the Triangle forming with its apex directly above your head  is a 3 Dimensional formation you are visualizing that you are sitting in a pyramid made of Golden- Indigo light.

Then imagine the 2nd triangle forming with the lower point below you root chakra in space below the earth, and the top flat horizon parallel to what you would normally consider a flat horizon to be but it is miles above you in the sky.

This becomes a 3 Dimensional formation comprised of the 2 interlocking golden -indigo radiating pyramids.

This is a space-time travel vehicle. Once you can really sense, or see or feel the Merkaba around you , you can travel anywhere you wish to go.

Th6si is a wishing star vehicle.

Make 10 wishes on the Full Moon. call upon your Guardian Angels to help you and go wherever your higher self deems necessary or choose for yourself.

Take as long a  journey as you wish, and remeber to send some love and good will to  help other who are struggling.

when you feel ready, pull in your breath sharply , tuck your chin into your neck.

Give thanks for all the wonderful Light beings,helpers animals, ancestors, fairies, people you know or whoever  came to meet you.

See yourself arise from the Merkaba and shrink it so that it s very tiny and place it inside your heart.

 From this time forward you can always take out your merkaba and use it to travel safely wherever you wish to go.

Questions?

 Please do let me know how you find the meditations… I am currently making mp3’s and CD’s of them.

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

Nuclear meltdown in Japan,women have the anti-dote, SuperMoon by Tara Greene

March 12-14th 2011 With the 2nd or 3rd Nuclear power plant at the Fukushima plants in meltdown and dangerous types of nuclear fuel used this is  a very dangerous situation and is being covered up in the media. see

http://search.japantimes.co.jp/cgi-bin/nn20100823a7.html

I meant to write feminine and masculine and my Freudian unconscious slip went  faminine and mesculine as in the famine of the Feminine created by the mess of the masculine. How apropos.

The latest powerful earthquakes and  tsunami’s in Japan is the earth crying out for women to pay attention to her and act in right relationship.  If we are really humanKIND we must act kind, we must be kind, we must reKINDle ourselves in harmony with the heartflame of Grandmother Earth.

We are all Her children. We are but little specs, like ants upon her bosom, see how fragile we truly are when Mother Nature shakes us about, she is showing us who is boss she’s giving us humans a time out for acting badly to her. 

MOTHER EARTH, the Divine Feminine is full of unconditional love for all of us but we, MEN  have raped and abused her for thousands of years now and her womb,the oceans are polluted and the air, her breath and the earth, her body had been so ravaged by greed and masculine dominator models for over 5,000 years. None of her earth should be mined, blasted, no oil pumped out, no radioactive materials used.

Any mistreatment of women and children who are created in her DIVINE IMAGE, Feminine like Her Self is an affront to The Goddess= Our Mother. To further strengthen our commitment to the 100th anniversary of International Womens’ day we need to honour the earth with our bodies and our blood more than ever. Desperate times call for ACTION and commitment.

Women- written by Canadian Singer Nancy Ward  from her album

To the Planters of Trees produced by Jack Lenz. 1989{ ?}

Women, we are strong like the trees,

we can bend in the wind,

we can bend in the wind without breaking

Women, we are patient as mountains,

we endure like the rivers,

 we are waters on the storm,

 we are peacemakers.

Women, Mother Earth is our baby,

 she is sick and in trouble,

 Mother Earth is our baby,

 our own, Mother  Earth is our baby, our own.

People, we must call on our powers,

from the earth sky and waters,

 we must heal Mother EArth with

our Beauty, our Beauty 

 we must heal, Mother Earth, with our Souls.

Holy Grail, Sacred Blood heals the earth

In ancient times Women’s menstrual blood was considered Holy, the Sacred Blood of Life. The Holy Grail is the womb itself the Sang Real is royal blood. Menstrual blood was the first blood used to fertilize crops, the beginning of agriculture. The red carpet which we know to today used by Hollywood stars denoting power, wealth, beauty was originally a special carpet that women  bled upon which gave it its power. 

Women your monthly period is your sacred menstrual blood of Life and will help to heal the earth. As in homeopathic cures, like cures like and in magick intention is everything. We must give back what She has honoured us with, the Gift of Life and to give back .

You know this in the deepest part of your wombs in your unconscious in your cells. All you have to do is get past the programming and remember what your body tells you. Ask your womb if it is holy? Is your monthly bleeding time sacred? Is your monthly flow not the root of and intended to bring forth the miracle of life? How could it be any other way? We need to move out of unconsciousness into empowerment and enlightenment, this is it. Your body hold the magick. You need to free yourself til you can laugh at how ridiculous it is to believe that your sacred body and its natural flow could be anything but sacred and holy.

If you are a woman who still bleeds, save your blessed menstrual blood in a non-toxic pad or cup and pour some onto the earth or in a body of water with a prayer of powerful intention to heal mother earth NOW. This will greatly benefit the earth and all her relations.

Especially at this very powerful u[coming Super Moon on March 19 when the full Moon will be closest to the Earth in 20 years, if you are bleeding then use that time especially. Anytime and always is the best time. Give back to Mother earth that which She has given you. This is ancient pagan wiccan ceremonial magick. It is very powerful menstrual blood,  that is why there was all the taboos about women bleeding. 

I made a vow at a women’s ceremony in 1992 to teach women and young girls about the sacred power of their menstrual blood. I  offer to coach to educate, to lead ceremonies and rituals.

Imbolc,Candlemas,St. Brigid’s Day,Groundhog Day Feb 1-2 Tara Greene rituals

Feb. 1st –2nd IMBOLC Traditional Irish and Pagan Holiday Celebrations

 

 

 

Traditionally what we modern Westerners know as Groundhog Day was and is, on Feb 1st or 2nd is celebrated in the Modern Irish Calendar as Saint Brigid’s Day,or Bride’s Day. Both a Catholic and an ancient Pagan Celebration,an ancient Goddess tradition, also called Imbolc, still celebrated by Wiccans/Pagan based Earth honouring religions. Christians overlaid the Ancient Goddess worshipers’ holiday renaming it Candlemas or the fest of the Purification of the Virgin. This celebration also relates to the midpoint between Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox.

It is a “cross-quarter” day in the 8 rounds of the Wheel of Time in the Solar based year. Since the Celtic Year was based on both lunar and solar cycles, it is most likely the holiday would be celebrated on the Full Moon nearest those 2 midpoints, when early spring flowers would begin to rise up through the snow, and snakes would come out of the ground. This is the precursor of the Groundhog, which the Romans replaced with a Hedgehog, which we… On Feb. 2nd this year there is a NEW MOON IN AQUARIUS at 12:45 am EST.
That Ancient peoples of Ireland kept this day as very sacred. At the Megalithic and Neolithic sites, such as the Loughcrew burial mounds and the Mound of the Hostages in Tara, Ireland, the inner chambers of the passage tombs are perfectly aligned with the rising sun of both Imbolc and Samhain attesting to the value placed on this day.

Triple Goddess/Saint Brigid/Bride

She is according to Robert Graves, the most Ancient Triple Goddess worshipped since time out of mind. The Goddess rules over scholars and poets. She is the Goddess of fire and inspirations in Ireland, the Goddess of poetry, creativity, smithcraft and healing. She also rules healing with water, and divination. She is said to rule over people who work with cows and chickens, brewers, fugitives, midwives, infants, printers, sailors, travelers, New Zealand, & Irish nuns. This day symbolizes a time of transitions, initiations, new beginnings, of planting seeds that will sprout later. Brigid/Birgita represents the light half of the year,Her power brings the people out of the dark season of winter into spring, so, it is a very important time of the year.

She is the Goddess of Augury

In the Druidic tradition, poetry and augury were associated. She is patron of prophets and seers.

Celtic seers divined by looking into deep water and into flames. This is a great time to do divination. STare at a candle, a fireplace with conscious intention. Call upon Brigid to come to you.

Triple Goddess

She has two sisters with the same name. One aspect of her carries a blacksmith tongs and a sword, because she is also patroness of war; another aspect holds 2 healing snakes, from which the modern Doctor’s symbol is derived, the caduceus, the third aspect carries a wand with a crescent moon and a tablet.

Elements

Brigid rules the Waters. Many healing springs are dedicated to Brigid. Natural bodies of water also signify Her presence, particularly where three streams joined together. She also rules Fire, so it is customary to make candles for the coming year and bless them on this day.

Protecting Goddess

In her aspect as Brigantia, she carries a spear, an orb of victory, and wears a war crown. She symbolizes protection of the country from invaders and slavery.

Midwives

As Patroness of Midwives, she was invoked at the door of the home where the woman was giving birth, by the midwife. Who speke:

Bride, Bride, come in! Thy welcome is truly made, Give thou relief to the woman, And give thou the conception to the Trinity.

Brigid is the guardian of every newborn, their cradles protected with a woven Brigit’s Cross, an equal armed cross. Upon a safe delivery, the infant was blessed or “sained” by the midwife, with 3 drops of water on the child’s forehead, dedicating the Child to the Triple Goddess. The “Holy Trinity” in its modernized Christian aspect, was just an overlay of the Goddess Triple Aspect since time out of memory. A candle was carried ‘round the bed sun wise three times. As Brigid is a Solar Goddess. We think of the Sun as masculine but originally all aspects of the Universe were considered Feminine.

Brigid Ruler of the Hearth

Especially in Gaelic Scotland, Brigid’s dolls are placed near the hearth on her Feast Day. The doll is usually dressed in white, decorated. A white wand is placed in her bed as a fertility charm. As she is patroness of agriculture, pastures, livestock, and abundance. An offering is made to her of dairy products. The Brigid doll is kept throughout the year near the hearth hung on a wall, or by a door, as a talisman of protection, then burnt the next year.

Light a Candle and Invoke the Goddess at this time-

I kindle this candle in the name of Brighid, Goddess of Smiths,

I sain this house in the name of Brighid, Goddess of Healers,

I smoor this candle in the name of Brighid, Goddess of Poets.

One folk tradition still continues in both Christian and Pagan homes on St. Brigid’s Day is that of St. Brigid’s Bed. Girls and young unmarried women create corn dollies to represent Brigid, these are adorned with ribbons, baubles shells or stones. A bed is made for the doll to lie in. On St. Brigid’s Eve Jan 31, the girls gather together in one house and stay up all night with the doll, are are later visited by all the young men, who ask permission to enter the home, and then treat the young maidens and the dolly with respect. The next day the girls carry the doll through the neighbourhood from house to house, where she is welcomed with great honour. Adult women stay home to welcome the Brigid procession and offer snacks and coins to the young girls and maidens.

Brigid is said to walk the earth on Imbolc eve. Feb 1st. Before going to bed, each member of the household may leave a piece of clothing or strip of fabric outside for Brigid to bless. The cloth are brought inside the next morning, believed to now have the powers of healing and protection.

BRIGID is alive and well.

The name “Britain” is a derivation of Brigit’s name. Britain was named for an ancient Celtic tribe, the Brigantes, who were the largest Celtic tribe in the country in pre-Roman times who worshipped Her as their Deity. The tribe originated from an area now called Bregenz in Austria near Lake Constance. The word “brigand” comes from this tribe of fierce warriors. Her symbol is a flaming spear. Her worship spread, leaving behind places named in Her honour-Brittany in France, Brechin in Scotland, the name Brent, in England, any name containing Bride. Britain’s symbol, the Goddess Brigantia, still found on their 50 cent coin is Brigid in her aspect as Goddess of the Land. In Old German/Yiddish the word “Fabrent” meaning burnt honours this Ancient Goddess. Of course Britany Spears is carrying the modern archetype of Brigid, and strangely enough one of Brigid’s symbols is a flaming spear!

A Sample of prayers used at St. Bridgid’s Day

Light 1 candle-

We gather together in this time of darkness. We look to the return of the light.

We look to the first light of Spring.

(Light two more candles.)

Goddess Midwife: Healer, Nurturer, and Herbalist.

Goddess Poetess: Bringer of Wisdom, Guidance and Prophesy.

Goddess Smithcraft: Keeper of Fire, Craftswomen, and Transformation.

Maiden, Mother, and Crone – A Triple Goddess.

Her symbols are Brigid’s cross, the flaming arrow, Brigid’s bed.

It was customary to write wishes upon scraps of cloth

and tie them to the bushes near her sacred wells.

This is Her Time of Year, a very special moment.

Her day is the Second of February,

A day upon which to seek wisdom from inside the Earth.

In the time before Patrick, serpents were sent

because they dwell in both worlds, above ground and below.

In Christian Times, the serpent became a Groundhog.

Our lady is a goddess of many aspects: Crone, Matron,

but she is pictured most often as the maiden.

Chant: Welcome Brigid, Welcome Brigid (the burning arrow of the power – Bridgette)

(Candles are lit. Maiden Goddess appears.)

Brigid: Blessings of the season upon you, my People.

I am She, that is the natural mother of all things,

Mistress and governess of all the elements,

The initial progeny of worlds,

Chief of the powers divine,

Queen of all that are in the other world,

the principal of them that dwell above,

Manifested alone and under one form

Of all the Gods and Goddesses.

St. Brigid, celtic Goddess, Imbolc, Candlemas

Maxxed Out Cardinal Crosses, Cosmic Traffic Pearl Jams by Tara Greene

THE CARDINAL CROSS TIMES  

 Aug 6- 7th 2010  Tara Greene’s  Astrology Updates and advice for the ongoing continuous stress of Uranian Plutonian revolutionize and change now or soon die and maxxed out Cardinal crosses including a number of planets!  

Since the June 26 Lunar eclipse Grand Cardinal Cross which instigated these 2010-2012 CArdinal Years there’s now more energies applying again, more hits to get us up and moving. 

These days there is now Jupiter and Uranus in Aries, Pluto in Capricorn, The Moon in early degrees of Cancer, Venus just entered Libra, her Home sign, cozying up to Mars and Saturn in the scales of Karmic Justice. Producing, count ’em  10 squares and 7 oppositions! That’s a whopping tension.  

That number of new beginnings-early Cardinal Sign planets in Grand Cross formation hasn’t been seen in about 2,000 years!!!! What happened back then? 

   

The Jupiter Pluto square will be in effect for the nest 6 weeks!  Jupiter is Mr. Big, Jupiter rules foreigners, airplanes, religious fanatics, higher education, travel, philosophy, legal matters, risk tasking. Jupiter is THE Wheel of Fortune in the Tarot. Pluto is Hades lord of the Underworld, Soul presence, shadow, Pluto if used very consciously is power and riches. Negatively its’s secrets, power and control over others. But its all good,as its’ purpose is all about destruction  or de-construction & resurrection.  So how’s your personal D & R. going?  

How Phoenix do you feel?  Or how close or far are you from that event horizon? 

Pluto rules riches and worldly power in Capricorn and Jupiter is BIG, so large market falls are possible, big new laws which may limit people which then brings Uranus also in early Aries into the picture as the revolution is beginning to heat up. 

what me worry?

Cardinal crosses- who cares?

 

It all adds up to MUCHO STRESS! These  planets  Jupiter and Uranus, Mars Venus and Saturn all squared by Pluto and now opposed by the Cancer Moon are rubbbing against each other at 90 degrees angels and 180 degree -tug of war oppositions. With the newish Venus and Mars action with Saturn in Libra it’s supposed to be about Balance, fair play, equality, right? Jupiter and Uranus in Aries say its a whole new ball game, innovate now or forever kick yourself in the butt. This is just the preliminaries.  

Jupiter and Uranus are both Retrograding back to Pisces – Uranus on Aug 13th, Jupiter on Sept. 9 right after the mid Virgo New Moon and the beginnning of the Jewish New Year, Jupiter is Yahweh, so some kind of a spiritual karmic replay with Israel is forthcoming. Perhaps war!!  

These’re KArmic Times all right!  

ARE WE PRODUCING PEARLS YET?  

I feel the planet to work with – albeit quickly as she will only be in Cancer from Friday Aug 6th at 2:50 pm PDT till Aug 8 4:23 pm. But La Luna goes Void of Course on the 7th at 11:46 am and that’s the best time to do meditations or ceremonies. Sat Auh 7th around noon until Sunday Aug 8 at 4:23 pm PDT. Interesting its 88 again. 

 in this mix is the Moon, as she is once again in early Cancer as she was on June 26 the newcomer in this Grand cross. Squares can be liked to sand in the proverbial oysters, irritating as hell to the bivalve but what’s the oyster do? puts some spit and saliva on it to mitigate those outchy hard edges and what’s the outcome? a Pearl!    

Venus and Saturn are both at their best in Libra, Venus rules it, Saturn is exalted there.  This promises more harmony, equanimity, balancing and peace for a short period. Mars is weak in Libra the sign opposite the one he rules Aries. Moon rules Cancer in this cardinal cross. These are the ongoing Cardinal Cross years 2010-2012.  

We are at a Cross Roads,Cardinal refers to beginnings. This is the shift of the world ages.  

Planets are near where they were at the Great Depression of 1929. The 60’s generation that was seeded by Uranus and Pluto in Virgo with Saturn opposite in Pisces is having their collective mid life crisis. Things are tense, the forces of old established Patriarchal Capricorn corporate authority is being overhauled and restructured and recycled and destroyed by Plutonian influences. But not until they try to initiate fascism and the New world order, everyone is chipped and watched and police state politics, GMO, mad cow, brain meltdowns etc.  

The Catholic Church is falling apart, their known abuse of young men, the Church’s  homosexual shadows, it’s unholy piosness and callous cruelty in the false name of righteousness and blashepmy of Jesus is being uncovered for all to see. The church is responsible for burning and torturing over nine million people, mainly women in over 300 years,taking over their property over falsely accusing them of being witches and consorting with the devil. All lies. The churches is one of the richest most powerfull Institutions in the World. It is almost infallable. But fall it will,as people wake up and learn to see with their own eyes as Jesus said.   

This is one of the purposes of these Cardinal crosses, to raise awareness.

On a personal level:  

I know people are overracting, over stressed. My experience with all this- dumping, shadow spitting and all the dark parts that no one wants to own comming out in the clear blue light of day is a cleansing. Dont react to any of  it. It’s like a fire drill. Remain calm, it’ll all blow over like smoke, like ashes.  See it for what it is. That’s how you start making pearls of wisdom.  

It is a g reat clearing and cleansing. It isn’t necessarily pretty. My sense is everyone really needs to go into their hearts, and ask what their own personal truth is to cultivate and be in a place of love. The new frequencies and dimensions incoming are very high. We are walking on a knife blade. All there is is now. People are sick of too  much information, false reality, over complexity. Slow everything down and simplify your life.  

Neptune and Chiron are still inclose proximity. Chiron re-entered Aquarius July 20, he stays in Aquarius till 2011 and closely aligns with Neptune again at years end. The Wounded Healer Chiron and Neptune the planet of egolessness, spirit, Bliss, dissolving into Oneness, dreams, artistry, illusion, delusion, fantasy, denial, oil, addictions are showing us the cosmic signature.The Gulf oil crisis is the negative side of their cheek to cheek dance. The positive side is Healing of one’s soul, of the spiritual wounds. Be joyous.  

Aug 8th Venus and Saturn conjunct. Time to get serious in binding relationships. Many relationships end now, it is a karmic turnign point. How in balance is your life, love, finances and artistic endeavours? How much beauty do you create,appreciate, own?  New art forms will come out of this cardinal cross.  

With Moon in Cancer – be nice to your tummy. If you need to crawl under the covers in a fetal position and suck your thumb or hold your blankie that’s ok  too. And let the tears fall as well.
I find crying to be a great release from all the tension. Security needs and issues come up in all relationships very strongly. Power backlashes are the result of insecurity. Remember that.  

 Meditate and breath in the Light. Powerfull spiritual master teacer are nearby and hovering in very close waiting and watching and coming if you ask. Dont be afraid. remember where you came from. We all come from the stars.   

I was visiting friends of mine up in the Bancroft area in Northernish Ontario the other day. They mentioned a lot of UFO sightings in the country and Pleiadian sightings. Call in the ones who love you who are in the Light to help you navigate through these turbulent times.  

Remember its all about pearl jam making.

June 26 G20 Lunar Eclipse Cardinal Grand Cross by Tara Greene,Toronto

Eclipse Lunar Cardinal Grand Cross G20 June 26

powerfull Lunar Eclipse June 26

 

JUNE 26 Capricorn LUNAR ECLIPSE CARDINAL  GRAND CROSS  

TORONTO G20 SUMMIT & more from Tara Greene  copyright  

 Toronto:  

Did you feel the earthquake on Wednesday June 24th? In Toronto, that’s the preview of the GROUNDBREAKING literally- Capricorn- earth sign Cardinal Grand Cross Lunar ECLIPSE ON June 26. The Epicentre was north of Ottawa, the Canadian capital city who is the host of the G8 and G20 conferences. Earthquake registered 5.5 on the Richter scale, pretty big and heavy for the very solid Canadian Shield. Its effects were felt all the way to New York. Gaia, the earth she is a rockin’ something earth shaking is upon us. The G20  happens in Toronto on June 26.  

  A MAJOR cosmic EVENT of 2010  

 This is one of the most powerful Cardinal GRAND CROSSES on a LUNAR ECLIPSE ever! It is one of the Major events of 2010! Happening just a few days after the Summer Solstice – Sun at Zero degrees of Cancer, the chart shows a Full Moon with PLUTO URANUS SATURN JUPITER and MERCURY, that’s 5 planets folk’s all within 5 degrees if the four Cardinal compass points of the seasons. Number 5. number 5, number 5. Number 5 in the Tarot symbolizes trouble, testing, it is the symbol called the Pope traditionally or the Heirophant, which fits perfectly into the G20 summit,all the leaders are “high priests.” 

Cardinal signs mark the shift from one season to another. Witt the big outer planets involved – SHIFT HAPPENS! – IN THE WORLD.  

 TRIPLE THREAT GRAND CROSS-  

A grand cross or a Grand Square is comprised of at least 4 squares and two oppositions between planets.  This Grand Cross involves 12 Squares and 6 opposing planets! That’s a Triple threat. Squares are pressure points, like sand in an oyster, they are irritating, frustrating, and they make ya move. With the focus on the Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn, the results needed from all this pressure must be practical, long term, solid, real.  

 THE REVOLUTION BEGINS HERE!  

The big outer planets involved Uranus, Saturn, Pluto- these planets propelled the 60’s revolution. The Kennedy’s, the Beatles, War resistance, the Love-IN’s from an Astrology perspective the conjunction of Uranus and Pluto in Virgo opposite to Saturn in Pisces during the mid 60’s created the Cultural Revolution.  

Everyone born during the mid 60’s is being challenged now to wake up and create something real out of all the ideals that were seeded then. This is the mid life crisis of the All you need Is Love, Woodstock generation.  

 GREAT DEPRESSION DEJA VU  

Uranus and Jupiter in Aries sound a wake up call to do things differently, with renewed vigour. Down side is too much bravado, short term fix its, over optimism, recklessness and war mentality.  Jupiter and Uranus at the beginning of Aries is the end of an old, approx 84 year cycle and heralds the beginning of a new one. Uranus and Jupiter were at the same degrees as in the spring of 1927, just before the Great World Depression of 1929. Same thing all over again coming soon? Remember other government regimes that came into power concurrently with that cycle… We are condemned to repeat history if we don’t learn from our mistakes.  

 Anything which is banned, restricted, suppressed, feared, projected goes into hiding in the shadow in the Unconscious, The Lunar Eclipse plus the energies of Saturn {karma} in Virgo, sign of Health, work, perfectionism, nitpickiness’, and Uranus planet of revolution in Aries, sign of New Life, along with Jupiter, Mr. Big, all aligned to create massive stress, and change. Things are VERY TENSE.  

The Gulf of Mexico, BP oil slick continues to grow, Gaia’s blood, the oil is spilling into the Oceans, floods, earthquakes, nations economies toppling. We know we are are on shaky ground.  

 THE ENDARKENMENT of the World Soul and the FEMININE SHADOW  

 Pluto is Conjunct the Moon so both energies are combined and being eclipsed, at the same degree of Capricorn.  Pluto, never mind some Astronomers remoting Pluto-represents the Collective Unconscious, the world Soul, the shadow. Pluto is Power, Control, Secrecy, Manipulation, the Birth Giver and Death bringer, the Great Recycler. Pluto in Capricorn represents all the G20 leaders in Toronto at this time.  

The Moon symbolizes the people, their feelings, emotions, need for emotional security, nurturing, the mothering principle. The Moon absorbs, reflects, and is the dreaming nature, the intuition.  This conjunction on the Capricorn Lunar Eclipse, sign of Patriarchal Corporate authority, the old boys network, shows a reversal of power coming into effect.  

 The Sun, the Source, is in Cancer which is ruled by the Moon. Mercury, thinking and communicating, is conjunct the Moon, connected to the feminine, feeling nature.  

This situation symbolizes the World Soul {Pluto} the People and their need for Emotional Expression, Security, Nurturing, the Relating and Mothering Principle {Moon} merging together, combining their energies. As the Solar Rays and the Earth endarken and enshroud the Moon and Pluto during the eclipse the usual patterns of the Lunar unconscious energies, Big SHIFTS occur, new dimensional pathways and vibrations open.  

 It’s a fusion of the shadow, the feelings, the collective unconscious, what has been repressed, underground, rotting, is being REBORN in Plutonic fashion. The shadow and the dark, the void, is the home ground of the feminine nature. This is the ensoulment of the feminine feeling nature, being birthed into the World; it is like the Shekinah in the Kabbalah.  

This Lunar Eclipse allows for a transformation of all that has been repressed in our feeling natures, in the Goddess, in our relationship to the earth Herself, to Gaia, to flow out into a practical, grounded Capricorn Solidarity.  It may be underground, a groundswell, long term goaled, hard working. This creates a rebalancing to the New World Order’s corporate world, like a Dragon, a chthonic, archaic revival, a pagan, earthy energy coming to swallow it up.  

During a Lunar Eclipse, the Dragon’s Head aka the North Node, and the Dragon’s Tail the South Node align closely enough with the Sun Moon and Earth which enables an eclipse to occur.  This pattern occurs cyclically and regularly, every six months.  

 SUPER GALACTIC CENTER ALIGNMENT  

The Grand Cross also aligns with the SUPER GALACTIC CENTER {SGC} which is at 1 degree 46 minutes of Libra. It is a colossal Black Hole with the mass of a billion suns, around which the Milky Way and many other galaxies revolve. Powerful electromagnetic transmissions emanate from the SGC acting as a spiritual beacon of other dimensional energies. Memories of our cosmic origins and memories may be triggered by the SGC especially being highlighted by the Grand Cross Lunar Eclipse. Watch your dreams carefully around the Eclipse. The effects of a lunar eclipse generally last 6 months.  

 Cycle of this Eclipse- ALIGNING with DEC 21 2012!  

This Eclipse is part of what’s known as Saros cycle 146, which began in 1541! That date points to the beginning of modern Astronomy, the Renaissance and a major paradigm shift away from a geocentric model of the Universe.  Each cycle builds and evolves on the previous ones. 

Dec 21 2012 alignment link up – evolving towards 

This Lunar Eclipse is opposite to {by a few degrees} the Lunar Eclipse which will occur on Winter Solstice, December 21, 2010  @ 29 degrees of Gemini, {a critical degree and symbol} which also puts us smack on the mark, aligning us with you know what- in two years time.  So this is a very valuable alignment to use to create what, where, how, you want to feel and evolve over this next 2 and a half years.  

 The revolutionary nature of the eclipse is further enhanced by Uranus stationing Retrograde on July 5 and hovering over the first degree of Aries for 78 days, from May 27 to Aug 14. Saturn makes its 3rd quincunx exact the day after the eclipse – see more about this later} signalling an end to a nine month pregnancy stage in prep for birthing.  

 SATURN, GALACTIC CENTER, CERES  

Saturn in Virgo is also just past a Square to the Galactic Centre at 27 degrees of Sagittarius which the Asteroid Ceres is near, 2 degrees away, retrograding right now. Again the strong earthy Ceres connection pointed out by the Square from Karmic Saturn, to the Higher consciousness and source of cosmic knowledge and understanding needed to evolve with here. The Galactic Centre is the focal point of the Dec 21 2012 alignment of the SUN to the Center of Consciousness in our Milky Way Galaxy.  

WOUNDED Healers, BP OIL, SYMBOLISM & LILLITH  

Quincunx of Neptune Saturn Chiron LILLITH  

 There are other significant players at this time. Neptune is Retrograde at 28 degrees of Aquarius.  Neptune rules the Oceans and Oil, martyrdom, delusion, illusions, addictions, Secrets enemies, endings, spirituality, meditation, drugs, glamour, Hollywood, Bliss, compassion, dreams, the Unconscious, artists, music.   

CHIRON, the Wounded Healer is Retrograde at Zero Degrees of Pisces. Did you know that Chiron entered the sign of Pisces on the day of the BP Deepwater Horizon oilrig breakdown in the Gulf of Mexico on April 20? How amazing is that synchronicity?  

Neptune and Chiron have been dancing cheek to cheek in late Aquarius since 2009.  

A significant new player is now in the mix creating a ménage a trios.  

Lillith, she the feared harpy, the original Woman, is sandwiched in between Chiron and Neptune at 29 degrees of Aquarius. Lillith represents the most feared energy of the FEMININE, she symbolizes the uncompromising, rejecting, independent energy of women. She is Kali-like; she is the death bringing aspect of the feminine. In the original Hebrew Bible, she was created equal to Adam from the earth, she refused to be dominated by him and left paradise voluntarily refusing to compromise forgive or return. Lillith’s energy was greatly feared. She was almost written out of history when replaced by Eve as Adam’s all complacent and punishable by Divine Write man made law, turning the Goddess into something “shameful, born in Sin, everlastingly punished and labouring in pain.”  

Lillith’s presence here is quincunxing Saturn at 28 degrees of Virgo. A quincunx is a 150-degree aspect between inharmonious elements.  

Lillith’s energy can never be truly repressed. To repress the independent, uncompromising wisdom of women is to deny her her strength and power and her Divine nature. LILLITH’S ENERGY WHEN NOT HONOURED IS VERY DESTRUCTIVE.  

 Combined with Neptune and Chiron we see the archetypal symbol of all that is being repressed in our relationship to the primordial energies of the Feminine, the Earth, with Neptune’s symbolizing our Divine Spiritual origins, our Dreams, Divine Love – with Chiron- where the wounds and the vulnerabilities are and the potential to be healed, Quincunx to earthy Saturn in Virgo who wants to clean up the earth. Quincunx’s point out where the work is to be done as, like a bunch of mainly white male world leaders, they don’t get along very harmoniously or share the same values. Saturn is karmic, so we gets what we put out. Gaia, Lillith, Ceres, Saturn these are all archetypal Feminine Goddess Planetary symbols.  Saturn is originally Feminine of course. Saturn rules Capricorn and Aquarius. So the critical 29th degree is being invoked here. This is the 11th hour of our survival! 

 I believe this is yet another sign of the Shadow aspect of the feminine rising up, shaking the earth, like we felt in Toronto the other day.  Saturn won’t stay long in Virgo, the latter degrees of signs are the final curtain call and signify the alarm is going off, a dire need to do something. The quincunx to Neptune and Chiron with Lillith in late Aquarius shows the fallibility of modern technology in the still unable to contain the Oil spill in the Gulf. And I see more shaking of the Earth, and her economies going on. We have reached critical mass. This Lunar Eclipse signifies a shakedown by the Divine Feminine, if you don’t honour Mother Nature; you get what you got comin’ to you.  

 On June 26 1991 a lunar eclipse occurred at 5 degrees Cancer-Capricorn; a solar eclipse at similar degrees occurred Dec 25, 2000 and a lunar eclipse at 3 degrees Capricorn- Cancer on June 24 2002. Think back about what was going on in your life then? What is calling you now?  

The Sabian symbols for the Sun-  “ an automobile wrecked by a train, the tragedy of an individual will’s pitting themselves against the collective will of society.”  For the Moon “ Indian’s on the warpath. The mobilization of physical and emotional energies in the spirit of conquest.” The caution is not to be self-centred or reckless.  

Asteroids TORONTO HARPER GAEA  

In the chart I created I used a few of the thousands of Asteroids to see how they fit into the whole picture. It’s always amazing to me how the symbolism works.  

Asteroid HARPER, #16254, representing the Canadian PM who is orchestrating the G20 in Toronto, for a whopping billion-dollar tax payer steal, is at 27 degrees of Sagittarius conjunct both Ceres at 25 degrees of Sagittarius and the Galactic Center on the Eclipse.  Harper is being squared by karmic Saturn and squeezed by Mother Earth Ceres, symbolizing he will get his come uppance.  

Asteroid Gaea # 1184  {Gaia} is at 23 degrees of Gemini conjunct Asteroid Toronto # 2104  at 20 degrees of Gemini,{ I kid you not}  symbolizing Toronto being the world’s focus at the moment for the G20 and the publicity, media, Big Talks, Gemini information generating, both are also Squared off by Saturn in Virgo and opposed by Ceres, Harper, the Galactic Centre.  A tight T-Square.  Again in spite of the barricades and nearly a billion spent, the public will not like it. The Galactic Centre represents a Super Highway of Cosmic consciousness.  

Even if the karmic come-uppance doesn’t appear right now, the Higher Consciousness powers that be have more power and influence than we can even perceive. 

happy holidays from Tara Greene, tarot reader, psychic, healer,astrologer
