Virgo Full Moon on a Master Number day and 3 degrees 33 minutes @ 6:19 pm GMT

Full Moon of VIRGO, the 6th mutable sign of the Virgin Earth Goddess signifies a time to account for many things. A time to analyze what we have harvested on all levels; practical, mental, emotional and spiritual. We are completing emotional lessons in being of service, our work and in honoring our bodies. This is a time to take inventory and critically analyze what nourishes us literally and in our local environment and communities. 

Virgo lunar energy brings a very grounded mood which is great to clean up your act with. Use this entire two week period to tidy up everything. Virgo is the sign of workaholics, accountants, intellectuals, perfectionists and meticulousness. Virgo, ruled by planet Mercury collates, organizes and digests information in a very literal sense.  Virgo is also the sign of health, diets, herbal remedies, organic foods and natural medicine. This is an optimum time to access your health and see what improvements you can make. 

Virgo’s tend to worry and get very nitpicky about life’s apparent imperfections. At this Full Moon learning to trust and have faith is also important. There is a very dreamy, spiritual, creative PISCES energy at work with Neptune conjunct the Sun which can expand many a third eyes on this potent day. We can connect beyond our mental ego’s incessant worries and go directly to spirit for the answers and just simply learning to trust our gut instincts more.

Dreams and the reality are the two poles which we need to balance out at this Full Moon and for most of 2016. Do pay close attention to your dreams on the Full Moon Night. You can incubate some dream queries which can be answered as the Moon diminishes.

 Mercury, the planetary ruler of Virgo is in Aquarius conjunct Asteroid Athena Goddess of wisdom, intuition and strategy. We can easily detach to analyze our situation from a higher perspective, with a larger grander vision. 

Virgo likes to break things down:

HARVEST/ FOOD

You are what you eat. This is a very prominent theme. We need to educate ourselves on how foods are grown. If you eat meat how that is animal treated? How is the land nurtured and harvested. Questions to ask:

Is this Food, Genetically modified? All foods can be genetically modified and despite the propaganda are very dangerous to human and animals health. The body cannot assimilate genetically altered materials. If foods are not certified organic then they are most likely GMO and fertilized with dangerous pesticides such as the heavily carcinogenic Roundup. Find out if there are additives and hormones in your food.  Anything processed is not real food and not fit to be eaten. Most Fast foods and anything microwaved cannot sustain health on any level. Read up on Superfoods, detoxing, The 100 mile diet, food combining, raw foods and supplements to improve your health. Natural herbal remedies, Ayurveda, Chinese, Tibetan and traditional, wise woman herbals are all ancient proven methods.

WORK and SERVICE

As the traditionally sign of Servants. The question is: What do I serve?  This is a very important question. Keep asking it until you get a clear answer.

Are you happy with your job?  The Buddhists talk about Right livelihood, your job should be something which brings good into the world. If you work for an Advertising Agency writing ads for pharmaceuticals drugs which, you will find are dangerous like Paxil, etc. you need to ask yourself if you should be selling or promoting that.

Are you a slave to your job? Why? You can make choices and boundaries about what you are willing to do.

This is a good time to think about how your job can be a dream job with Neptune opposite the Moon. What did you always dream of doing? How can your work serve and nourish the environment and your community?

CLEANSING MOON

Virgo’s are usually clean freaks. What needs to be cleaned up in your environment and in your life? What emotional baggage needs to be jettisoned? This is an excellent moon for detoxing, depending on where in the world you live. In Southern Hemisphere and warmer climates you can safely detox. In the Northern Hemispheres where it is still winter you can do simple nourishing tonics for now. Virgo governs the liver, spleen, small and large intestines and respiratory system. Bitter tonics and specific herbs help stimulate these organs.  Colonics and the like would also be recommended as well as fasting. The body will heal itself if given a chance to rest. Full Moons are great times for cleansing with water. See Meditation instructions below. 

THE SIGN Of VIRGO is the symbol of THE HERMIT in the TAROT which is also the symbol of 2016, which reduces to the number 9.The Hermit is the symbol of perfection and completion. Learning to listen to one’s own inner wisdom. Connecting the mind and body as one.  HERMIT tarot Virgo Tara Greene

MEDITATION INSTRUCTION

Set up a sacred meditation space, alter or mesa.

MUSIC: I recommend Carlos Nakai Native flute music Canyon Trilogy https://youtu.be/BrluNutLNpc

4 candles, a journal, earth or crystals, create a medicine wheel of 4 stones or 8 as you wish.

Begin by smudging yourself. Light your candles. One for each direction. I always work EAST to SOUTH to WEST TO NORTH. Always move clockwise. Call in the four elements and the four direction into your sacred circle.

Call in the four Archangels, Michael, Gabriel, Ariel, Raphael in the same order.
Center yourself by breathing, sit or lie down, close your eyes.

Sit upright, begin to breathe, slowly, naturally and deeply. Let all your thoughts dissipate as you breathe in and out. Pay attention to your breath moving in through your nostrils filling up your lungs and then being released as your lungs empty, breathing out through your mouth. Pause after you exhale for a few seconds then slowly breathe in for the count of four and be aware of the air entering your lungs and filling them. The deeper you breathe, the more oxygen enters your body which expands your conscious awareness as your entire body relaxes. 

Breathe into your root chakra and send the energy down through your spine down to Mother Earth’s center.  Feel the rooted grounded crystalline earth all around you.  Take your time. When you reach the earth’s core spend a few minutes there and thank the Earth Mother. Then when you feel ready bring your back up through the rocks and stones up into your 1st root Base chakra. Know that you and the earth are one.

Send your breath from your root chakra up through your chakras in order up to your 3rd eye with the intention of opening it. Make sure to stay grounded as you do this. After you feel the 3rd eye buzzing send your intention and breath throughout your head waking up your pineal gland and sending the breath up to your crown chakra and out to the Full Moon. The mental and earthy aspects of Virgo need to be balanced at this time. Sit in meditation and receive from the Moon the questions that you have ben pondering on service, health,

CLEANSING MOON BATH

You may also take a ritual cleansing bath after your meditation to get in touch with the watery aspect of the Moon and Pisces sun. You will need Epsom salts or Himalayan salts. Put a few drops of sandalwood or lavender oil into the bath water. Bring candles and incense into the bath. The entire bath is meant as a cleanse so stay focused as you enter. Dunk yourself in the waters with the intention of cleansing all old emotional, mental physical or spiritual energies. Do this immersion four times. You may meditate on your life and your path of service. Bring that fresh cleansed renewed energy into your life.

Write down any thoughts and goals that you will incorporate into your life. You will have the discipline to follow through.

Happy Full Moon 

Blessings,

Halloween Horror scope by Tara Greene witchy psychic predictions

HALLOWEEN originally called SAMHAIN is the Pagan New year!

We totally out of synch with solar/lunar natural cycle Westerners who denigrate the earth, the Feminine, the Goddess, and ourselves celebrate New Year’s on  a totally artifical Gregorian calendar date 2 months later.  Why not get in synch now?

 The commercialised version of Halloween which has been handed down to us, does partake of some of the original mystery of this night filled with ghosts and spirits walking amongst the living.

October 31 is the night when the veil which divides the worlds of the living and the dead is the thinnest. Covens of pagans, who are ancient nature worshippers, labeled witches and persucuted by the Catholic Church for centuries, would gather to celebrate this sacred Night, the direction of the North West on the great round of the wheel of Life.

Plates of cakes and wine with candles lit are offered to your beloved ancestors, without whom your consciousness and body would not be here. Recalling your departed relatives with reverence is part of the scaredness of this day.

An alter is decorated with autumn leaves, the oranges and golds, the pumpkin, a fall vegetable, one of the last of the season, symbolizes the full round, ripe with abundant seeds of Life.  The harvest has been gathered, the fields are fallow. The King of the Waning Year has sailed over the sunless sea of the womb of the Mother, and alights on the Shining Isle, the luminous wolrd egg, becoming the seed of his own rebirth. The gates of life and death are opened! the new Sun child is conceived, the dead arise and walk, and to the living is revealed the Mystery, that there is no death, that life is everlasting, all endings are but new beginnings. We meet in time out of time, everywhere and nowhere, here and there, atonce, to greet the Lord of Death, who is Lord of Life and the Triple Goddess who is the circle of Rebirth. – referenced to Starhawk.

IT is the best night to scry gazing into crystals or water.

The popular childrens Halloween game of bobbing for apples, comes down to us from the original ancient ceremonial use of the apple at the Halloween Sabbat ceremony. An apple is the Goddess sacred fruit of Life- remember the Garden of Eden? It is cut by a ritual sword or athame splitting it open to reveal it as the fruit of death as well. The 2 in One.  All apples are Goddess symbols, the shape of the fruits’ seeds is the 5 sided pentagram ,the five fold star of rebirth, as Venus actually cyles in the pentagram shape over time. Upright pentagrams are symbols of Venus herself. The downturned ones are inverted used for black magic and negative.

Apples and eaten wine is drunk. Celebrations of rebirth, renewal, everlasting life is what Halloween is all about. At Midnight Nov 1st becomes the day of the Dead celebrated thoughout Mexico, it is coincidentally also part of that ancient Halloween celebration. The spirits of the dead are able to intermingle with the living. Meals are shared with the departed ancestors and friends. In Mexico great fmaily picinics occur in cemetaries. The dead are consdered to be helpers and protectors of the living from the beyond always with us but closer this night.

SEXY SCORPIO SUN & RETRO VENUS, MERCURY IN SCORPIO, LEO MOON ON EARLY HALLOWEEN- shifts to VIRGO EARTHY PRACTICALITY

From Feeling like a KING/QUEEN t0 NEED TO TIDY UP WHILE I PARTY

Oct 31 2010 early in the day shows a firey proud passionate show off Leo Moon shining down. So expect raucaus outrageous over the top grandstanding. Very playfull child like adults whooping it up in their best Zombies, dracula, Vampires, witchy, drag, favourite star, clever, cleavage reavealing, bondage,kinky, best. 

MOON is Void of Course at 2:01 pm PDT/5:01 pm EDT

A Void-of- course Moon is great for scrying, spiritual work, crystal ball gazing, casting spells- white ones of course. The good witches say ” Harm none, or the spell comes back to you 9 times over.” 

YOU should see the “crack between the worlds”  this night. not to be confused with someone’s Mooning or derriere crack exposed by too short pants.  The veil between the worlds is what the High Priestess Tarot Trump # 2 protects and she is the MOON incarnate. I am a High Priestess by birth Number. I remember many past lives functioning as a High Priestess in many cultures and time periods. Read all about it in my upcoming book…

Energy may wind done as Moon moves into earthy, perfectionistic VIRGO “what’s that out of place, blob on your zombie costume?” at 8:51 pm PDT / 11:51 pm – 9 minutes before the Witching hour?  So a big shift in energy tonight.

DO LET ME KNOW IF YOU FEEL THE LUNAR SHIFT …

The astrology chart cast for 5:01 pm EST time shows a firey Aries Ascendant and Saturn sitting right on the descendant at 11 degrees of Libra.  I predict marriage proposals for some seriously Saturn-ized Librans and other signs tonight.  

I’ve included asteroid VAMPILOVE # 3230 in the chart fittingly its at 2 degrees of SCORPIO { with venus Retrograde about to cross it} -it is the Asteroid whose name is most similar contraction to VAMPIRE I LOVE and  for more info on Asteroid VAMPILOVE – see my take on the most popular and handsome Vampire – Robert Pattinson- and its role in his Birth Chart at http://www.taratarot.com/id105.html

This asteroid is being squared by Pluto- Lord of  Death, and the North Node on Halloween.Karmic. Be carefull if bitten.

VERY SEXY SCORPIO HALLOWEEN 

what with Sun conjunct a Retro Venus and Mercury in Scorpio {plus that Asteroid} that’s 3 watery intense power, control, fetish, secrets, nite.

With Venus retro almost conjunst that Vampilov expect past lovers to show up mysteriously at your party but you won’t recognize them. Many many sexy bedroom romps later on this night on the day of the Dead Nov. 1st with mysterious strangers. Life in death and death in life.

Be carefull not to get inticed by spirits diguised as living humans.

SAFE HALLOWEEN.

REMEMBER TO HONOUR YOUR ANCESTORS NOV 1ST.
