Mercury enters Libra,art, social, justice

Mercury leaves his home sign entering Libra, sign of Relationships August 27, turning RETROGRADE September 17 at 15+ degrees Libra and then Direct at zero degrees of Libra on October 9th. Mercury will need until October 25 to get past its Retrograde stationary point.

Libra is Venus’s sign and the chit chat will be all about our partners, fashion, beauty, the social scene, charm, high culture, the arts, fashion, music, theatre, poetry, literature and gossip. 

Do go to art galleries, and let the air signs natural curiosity take you to new dialogues and presentations based on beauty. Think about your own sense of aesthetics. 

That’s almost two months of the planet of communications keeping us focussed on socializing, relationships, relationships and more relationships.  Mercury in Venus’s sign  will certainly want everything to be NICE, friendly, diplomatic, concerned with social justice and connecting with others.

This is the time to seek BALANCE, LIBRA is not naturally peaceful but must find that still point. We may be cementing alliances, making social contacts and contracts and sparkling as the hostess or host with them mostest. Lots of wonderful soirees and parties coming up. 

Libra’s downside is indecision, caught between two opposing forces and wanting to please, Libra tends to lean on what others think and can become superficial and losing the sense of their own power and choices.  

During Mercury’s Retrograde phase yes we continue the theme of having to go back and review, redo, renegotiate, those ideas, communications and dialogues again and again. There will be lots of political debates. A good time to redecorate, renovate, and get a beauty make-over.

Be very careful during Mercury Retrograde of your words. The shadow side of Mercury Retrograde may make Libra’s finding themselves making faux pas’s and destroying liaisons or reputations. 

Saturn will be in Sagittarius the sign of speaking the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth so help you having hoof in mouth disease. Be especially mindful on  October 9th as Mercury turns Direct and sextiles Saturn. The sexy sextile is in effect from  October 1st until October 19.  

The SCALES Of JUSTICE are Modern Libra’s symbol. The Statue of Liberty is the modern version of Libra. Originally these were the Egyptian Goddess Ma’at’s scales. This is the time of the Autumn Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere, the balance of day and night, of the masculine and Feminine. We need a new balance in love, sexual politics, culture, wealth and the world. 

Justice, democracy, freedom and equality will be big topics during these next two months. Major laws may be rewritten or repealed around immigration in many countries. Big legal cases, the Ashley Madison one in particular, and many other imbalances in social justice will be the topics of the day.

Sunny,revolutionary, kinky, Mercury goes Direct

Week of June 8- 12

I’m going to give you some brief words and overview for the first part of the week.

Sun in GEMINI, the biggest Light in our lives was sextiling Juiter in Leo on Monday

a very nice happy positive event. Was there lots of talking and bright conversations?

June 9 MARS sextiles URANUS early today at 19 degrees Gemini

this will tickle your fancy for the unusual, the unpredictable, the weird, kooky, revolutionary. Take chances today.

Moon is in Pisces squaring the Sun and Mars and conjunct Chiron

Pisces Moon is pressuring the big hot guys too mellow out.IReally sensitive Pisceans may need to retreat to the restorative spiritual bath at the end of the day..  

June 10 

Mercury moving soooo slowly sexxtiles VENUS in LEO 

You may here from long forgotten friends, lovers, people who want to show off and those who may want to take advantage of you. As Mercury is about to finally turn direct tomorrow. Rethink your love life dramas so you can change direction soon on that script.

SUN sextiles URANUS in ARIES the BIG LIGHT BULB is ON!

Put on your revolutionary chapeaux  and hit the streets running. This aspect is great for brilliant ideas, being really inventive, taking the road less travelled, and being brightly unconventional.  wear whatever you feel like today. Love your uniqueness and inspire others to do the same. 

JUNE 11 MERCURY TURNS DIRECT FINALLY @ 3:22 pm PDT/ 6:32 pm EDT

Yes a Mercury Retrograde’s energy really depends on what sign it is travelling through. In his own sign the energy is magnified. A very frustrating communications snafu time. But it isn’t officially over yet. It takes until the Messenger surpasses his Retrograde degrees of 13 degrees 09 minutes of Gemini. That will take until June 27 to clear the decks. 

If you still have left over chores to do, like me too, you can still spend time going over them.

Earlier this day there is Cardinal cross lunar energies and the Moon trines Jupiter which is always positive.

MARS squares Chiron in PISCES later in the day GIVE PEACE A CHANCE

give peace a chance Tara Greene Astrology

 

This is the war Lord vs the peacenick aspect. You may feel picked apart by mental bullying of others or your own devise. Put on your kinky boots. 

NEPTUNE goes RETROGRADE  June 12 until November 17

The outer planets all spend many months retracing their steps. Neptune Retrograde’s gift is being able to re-dream the dream, re-write the dream, revisit the past, the unconscious the memories. Neptune’s realm is the creator’s realm, all artists, painter’s, actors, musicians, are inspired from this ethereal ephemeral realm of the spirit. 

As Neptune is the Higher Octave of Venus

Neptune’s Retro passage may bring back old flames into your life. An old creative project may surface. 

Sun squares CHIRON in Pisces 

Gemini Sun is all about being in your head and duality, seeing the twin nature to this dimension, both sides now; angels and devils, “them” and us, and this aspect can bring out that fear and hatred about others who are different a very hot topic these days. Chiron is also a dualistic creature, half human above and half horse below. Conversely this is a time to think and talk about what makes us so different or is there a common wound we all share? Yes of course there is. Chiron’s long journey through the last sign of Pisces  and the most spiritual helps us to awaken to our commonality. We are all wounded that is why we are embodied.

Chiron entered  Pisces in April 2010 and remains there until April 2018. We have three more years to absorb and disseminate the wounded wild healer’s teachings.  Chiron in Pisces specifically symbolizes doing dream work to heal the psyche. Traditionally people were healed in dream temples in Ancient Greece called the Asclepius. Chiron raised the infant Asclepius and instructed him in the art of medicine. Asclepius became the greatest of healers, who could even raise the dead. 

A very heady Gemini Sun needs to slow down and get into their emotional bodies. Chiron in Pisces invites a ritual cleansing bath, a swim in a lake, a meditation session, listening to some transcendent music and letting go.

Venus sextiles Uranus, kinky sex astrology

in a pre Mercury Retrograde shadow. We got a new router put in and it didnt work right away So I have been offline for 24 hours. So here is yesterdays article.

A DEJA VU experience.

Jan 13  Venus sextiles Uranus today @ 12:12 pm PST

Uranus astrology Tara Greene

Yes like it sounds. Uranus the only planet that rotates at a 90 degree angle to a plane horizon. Yes the planet of UNIQUE invites us to be free.  It;s the day to experiment with anal sex i guess.

Another aspect of these 2 planets is that your love life may take a weird unexpected turn.

Venus sextiling Uranus. You get to have crazy quirky offbeat, rebellious Venus in Aquarius sex.

Be far out instead of your usual corporate self.Let your freak flag fly. 

Aquarius loves the Internet, modern appliances, detachment.  

You may suddenly be struck by cupids arrow and fall in love with some unexpected stranger. 

Uranus is chaos, change, freedom, rebellion,

so choose your protests wisely.

Experiment. Do things you never normally do. Let your crotch hair grow if you usually shave it. Be inventive, pioneering. daring.  The latest trend is to have Orgasm Meditation. 

Moon enters SCOPRIO Jan 13  it’s definitely very sexual energy

even though  VENUS is still in analytical – note the word anal in analytical?

liberated AQUARIUS. Love the one your with.

Definitely a deeply secret sexy day. Scorpio likes to be in control.

I am not a fan of BDSM. I hate that popularization of 50 shades of grey.

I find it a huge brainwashing technique to promote misogynistic female torture. 

SCORPIO MOON trines Mars its ruler. 

Good day to let off some anger and frustration in a productive way. 

Lots of Scorpio moon aspects Wed. including a Trine to Neptune which is super spiritual, loving, compassionate, empathetic, stare into each others eyes and practice tantric sex. 

Moon trines chiron later in on the 14th.

I’ll write later about that

Get down and dirty, earthy year’s end

We are leaving 2014 in an earthy down and dirty practical way.

Yes, four planets are in Capricorn now the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Pluto in the 10th sign of worldly affairs, career success, long-term goals and planning, patience, REALITY itself, corporate structure, karma, seniority, struggles, obstacles, hard work, building. 

and early on Dec 30 the Moon enters Taurus making it a QUINTUPLY  EARTHY time.

That’s an earth PENTACLE, the symbol of Venus orbit cycle of 8 years

pentagram of earth Tara Greene

Moon stays and grazes in Taurean meadows till noonish EST January 1. 

Dec 30 Taurus moon is mellow, lazy, sensuous, stubborn moods.

There are 2 awkward quincunx’s; one from Moon to Saturn in Sagittarius.

that old fire and earth trick never works.

MERCURY quinunx Retrograde Jupiter in Leo

communications snafus and big ego’s with big snits.

Moon sextiles Netune early in the day so its very creative and romantic.

Its a good time to sit and review what the year 2014 brought you. Journal, write a diary of your experiences.

Moon Trines SUN later in the day – nice and earthy, take a mud bath, count your blessings.

Virgo’s get some brownie points in this one too.

 CRIMSON & CLOVER _TOMMY JAMES & The Shondells 

Winter Solstice and 2015 preview

Solstice. The word means Sol=Sun, stands still. The Sun appears to rise and set at the same location on the horizon for three days. It really should be spelled SOULSTICE. It is an ancient wiccan/ pagan/Germanic tradition called YULE. Al indigenous peoples celebrated in the participation of the turning of the wheel of time. It is the REBIRTH of the LIGHT, in the northern hemisphere. The Christian religion couldn’t eradicate the ancient practice, so they made this into the day of Jesus’s birth -Christmas. This time also marks the ancient Roman festival of Saturnalia.

The two major solstices of the year are extremely powerful times to download new DNA encodings and contemplate new beginnings for the next 6 months. This is the real New Year to celebrate. 

The second 2014 solstice IS LIKE- YOU AIN’T SEEN NOTHIN’ YET

A POWER PACKED CARDINAL CRISIS ACTIVATED SOLSTICE

Its just a few days after the 6th exact Uranus Pluto square. We are already walking on broken glass and shattered dreams. 

There is a NEW MOON to further hammer home the new beginnings motif. 

The preview, the day before Solstice is a new nuance in the ongoing GRAND CARDINAL CROSSROADS saga.

VENUS, enters the CARDINAL CROSSROADS

VENUS, the beautiful planet of women, love, wealth, beauty, relationships and balance is in Capricorn at 14+ degrees and SQUARING URANUS which may be just as painful as it sounds. She is also conjunct to PLUTO at 12+ degrees of the practical sign of reality, wealth, power and corporate structures.

WOMEN will lead the revolution! They are ready to take back their power in the world and confront old PATRIARCHAL- Plutocratic platforms which rule every single aspect of our world- religion, culture, beauty and take them down to build a new world in the upcoming revolution.

WHAM BAM THANK YOU Ma’am.

Venus rules $$$$ Bling and PLuto is the SUPER BIG BUCKS, The Koch brothers, Federal reserve, etc. The two planets are opposite the U.S. Natal SUN and also square to its natal Saturn at 15 degrees of LIBRA- you know what that means-KARMA, laws, justice, balance. Venus rules Libra BTW.  I would expect another  major financial crisis to hit the fan or to start an avalanche.

Mars is also sextiling Uranus from Aquarius,they are in mutual reception.  Mars is in Uranus’s home sign and Uranus is in Mars’s home sign. This further puts the speed to: LIQUEFY.

DECEMBER 21

URANUS U-TURN @ 2:45 pm PST/5:45 pm EST

URANUS turns DIRECT in motion after being RETROGRADE since July 21. Planets are always at their most powerful as they station to change direction. Can you hear the screeching?

URANUS rules protests, liberation, revolution, freedom, chaos, Hi- tech inventions and there have been protests the likes of which we haven’t seen since the 60’s over Ferguson and the Staten Island killing of a black man negligently by police who weren’t indited for murder. The revolution is just going to get bigger with Uranus moving direct. I am so happy about this.

WINTER SOLSTICE is at 3:03 pm PST/ 6:03 pm EST/ 11:03 pm GMT

The Winter Solstice occurs during a Void of course Moon, since 4:35 am EST.

As with all Void Moons, it is a very spiritual time, a good time to do mundane things.

phases of the Moon tara greene

The Moon enters earthy, patient, practical, mature Capricorn at 5:25 pm PST/8:25 pm EST.

The NEW MOON occurs ten minutes later at 5:35 pm PST/8:35 pm EST/ December 22 at 1:35 am GMT at Zero degrees 6 minutes..

 

Of course all Aries, and Capricorns with planets at the middles degrees are getting personally affected by these energies. Also those born on the first few days of all of the Cardinal Signs- ARIES and LIBRA.

SCORPIO born at the very last days are also feeling much pressure as are all LATE FIXED SIGNS- TAURUS, LEO, AQUARIUS too.

GEMINI is getting quincunxed from early to mid degrees by the Capricorn energies.

LEO’s born August 13-17 are also feeling hard hit with Jupiter’s Retrograde as are AQUARIANS born Feb 13-17. Leo is also Qunicunx to Venus and Opposite Mars. You Lions may be feeling it financially, in the heart and of course the chaos.

SAGITTARIUS your time is coming up soon. Neptune is on your case anyway plus Chiron.

VIRGO – take a break for now. Can you? EARLY VIRGO get Saturn rapping your hard working knuckles soon.

THE NODES of the Moon are squaring Venus and Pluto and the South Node is conjunct Uranus.

Uranus/South Node to Venus, women and power, PLuto is a a huge green light signal to jettison the past. All the old scripts, the religious make belief stories about Eve, which define women as lesser than man, as his subordinate, chattel, just sexual orifices for male satisfaction, objects, feared and scorned will be shredded. 

Saturn, the ruling planet of Capricorn is at the very last “critical degree” of Scorpio, also indicating an end to a sex and money cycle about misuse of power, secrets,control, manipulation, the psyche, the shadow. Saturn in Scorpio is dealing with all the sexual fear, and unconscious emotions which govern us until we become conscious which is Uranus’ role.  The Uranus Pluto squares are to make us humans with real higher consciousness of ourselves each other and our world.  We have been acting mainly unconsciously.

THE ASTRO-CARTOGRAPHY MAP of the world shows where the Solstice HOT SPOTS triggers are most powerful.

astro map Tara Greene

 The “planets” and what they symbolize will show their powers on the spots they touch.

THE SUN and the Moon are North/South straight through South Africa on the West side going through Namibia,Central Africa, Niger and Western Libya near Tripoli. Continuing North through Venice Italy, near Zurich, Prague,and North through OSLO Norway. Nobel Peace prize ruckus anyone?

The Sun Descends through Fairbanks Alaska, right through the ALBERTA TAR SANDS and Fort McMurray. I predict there will be major protests here against the Tar Sands and with the Canadian government. This Continues near Edmonton Alberta,the Sun cuts a swathe south through America exiting at NEW ORLEANS. I feel there is a serious earth shake up coming to this entire Mississippi area. The Sun setting on the Tar sands indicates it is calling it quits time and moving to SOLAR power.

Sun descends through CANCUN Mexico, through ECUADOR, BOLIVIA and  PARAGUAY the new conscious and politically aware,fastest growing economies in South America relatively and the Sun’s path travels near Montevideo and finally exits at Mar Del Plata in Argentina.

The Sun Ascends through Indonesia, Singapore and Macau and up norther eastern China.

PLUTO VENUS with Uranus nearby meet in the Guyana Highlands. Pluto and Venus cross in Raleigh North Carolina and north near Detroit,Buffalo, Thunder Bay in Canada and up through FLIN FLON, yes that a real place in Manitoba. Travels North to Fort Good Hope up in the Far Northern Territories of Canada, Land which will be challenged as to ownership as the arctic ice melts. They travel through Finland, Belarus, Romania and Bulgaria.

PLUTO VENUS and the North Node cross at Bontang Malaysia.

Jupiter and Pluto cross near Yellowknife.Venus Mercury Mars the Moon and Pluto are all applying pressure to the oil and mineral rich territory of the northern parts of British Columbia. Saturn is sitting on VALDEZ ALASKA, OIL SPILL ANYONE?

URANUS AND VENUS cross exactly through ISTAMBUL TURKEY indicating economic unrest here. Venus continues west of Alexandria Egypt.

THE NORTH NODE travels through Ankarra Turkey and right through Cairo Egypt.

MARS travels through Uzbekistan and Mashhad Iran. 

Saturn and the Sun cross in Saudi Arabia, Saturn going right through Iraq and up through Georgia.

Saturn Ascends through the Maldives through central India and Nepal  and crosses with Chiron in the Xinjiang area of China.

Uranus goes right through the UKRAINE indicating more turmoil in this entire region. 

URANUS And the Moon cross in Zengxhou China.The Moon is the people so expect protests, and revolution in this area.
