Lucky Friday the 13th, reclaim it

Reclaim Friday the 13th and the #13 back to its origins as a Lucky Witch/Pagan Moon worshipping number of lunar cycles in a Year. Reclaim it sisters and brothers.

The fear of #13 is really a misogynist brainwash that originated with the Catholic church. e you superstitious? Were you born under a bad sign?  The scientific name for fear of #13 is called triskadekaphobia and the fear of Friday the 13th is called paraskevidekatriaphobia. Why is the #13 feared and supposed to be bad? The origin of the number 13 needs to be understood and shifted from fear and superstition.

 I love #13. The truth will set you free. Pet a black cat today and break a few mirrors. Breaking mirrors is a psychological metaphor for breaking free of your unconscious projections.

In the Tarot the #13 is DEATH and as the Western culture fears death and its own immortality it screwed all of this up and mad death bad and to be feared.

13 La Mort Oswald Wirth/ Public domain

Death was always presided over by The GODDESS. She who gives birth also gives Death. Again the Church’s fears of the Divine Feminine had to make everything associated with HER the Great Goddess- bad, negative, fearful, tainted. 

Friday is sacred to the Goddess VENUS it is HER day, that right there is telling you something. 

 Thirteen is the sacred number of the Goddess, the DIVINE FEMININE because it is the number of annual LUNAR cycles. Friday is named in honor of the Nordic Goddess Freya who is also the planet/ Goddess Venus. The Moon is one of the main embodiments of the Goddess. Women’s menstrual cycles are synchronized to the moon and women were seen to be earthly representatives of the Goddess, Her mysteries and immortality. Pagans worshipped the Goddess, the moon and Her natural cycles of death and rebirth which women partook of every month. Woman’s periods are equated with the number 13. 

To further suppress Goddess worship, the church made the number 13 into something evil, feared and superstitious as they feared women’s powers as creatresses as magical.

Friday the 13th is really an anti-pagan Goddess day and I don’t like it, as it continues to be portrayed that way in error. This keeps unconsciously programming fear of the feminine, intuition, magic, nature, menstrual blood, and women’s power.

Black cats are “familiars” of witches. All cats absorb negative energies and are highly sensitive to spirits and other energies which we normally can’t sense. If you’ve ever had a cat of any colour you know this.

On this day, Friday the 13th I honour the Goddess, the Divine Feminine and the lunar cycles. I remember and honour myself and all women as holders of the mysteries within our bodies.

Here are 13 important facts superstitious people need to know about

Always choose LOVE over Fear.
I choose to love and honour the real positive magic of being alive; naturally intuitive and connected imminently with nature.

Also, I do not believe in superstitious curses and their removal. Yes there are negative energies and entities. I do not ascribe to the belief in curses or blaming your life situation on that. All negative intention is black magic.  It is all about energy. Thousands of unscrupulous lying phony psychics claim to remove curses etc. but they are only manipulating naive unsuspecting powerless desperate people. I am totally against this position. Do not project your own powerlessness onto someone else as having some amazing power who claims that they can remove your troubles or provide an instant fix for thousands of dollars.  Please don’t pay phony psychics to perform rituals, light candles or pray for you for exorbitant prices. That’s all a hoax.  Yes, positive intentions work, only you can change your own life, no one can do that for you. It’s a matter of perspective and psychological shamanic awareness.  I help my clients to get empowered. Stop believing the popular myths which religions create just to control you. That’s black magic too. They always blame their own sins onto others. 

happy lucky friday the 13th

and NO THERE ARE NO 13 ASTROLOGY SIGNS AND THERE NEVER WAS IN THE WESTERN TRADITIONS. YES THERE ARE 13 LUNAR CYCLES WHICH SOME LUNAR CALENDARS WORK WITH BUT THAT IS NOT THE SAME AS SIGNS. OPHIUCUS THE ADDITIONAL COSTELLATION IN QUESTION WAS NOT CONTAINED ON THE ECLIPTIC AND WAS NOT PART OF THE SYSTEM. BESIDES THERE ARE 24 HOURS IN A DAY SO JUST DO THE MATH. MAYBE EARTH DAYS WERE ONCE 26 HOURS LONG AND HAVING 13 CONSTELLATIONS MADE SENSE THEN?

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.

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.

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.

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 remember 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,

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!

Manifested alone and under one form

Of all the Gods and Goddesses.
