Gorgeous Psychedelic Posters

I love old 60’s Psychedelic rock art posters.  I saw everyone of these acts from Cream to Soft Machine who opened for Jimi Hendrix in the good old days. I have some of these tiny posters myself from the Rock Pile in Toronto where I was a teen rep. for my high school. Georges Vanier S.S.

Do you like? These are from Detroit Motor City.

BEATLES memories Thanks from a True Blue fan,Tara Greene

Yes it was 50 years ago Feb 9th 1964 and I was a young girl at my usual Sunday night dinner at my Aun’t Becky’s house. Watching The Ed Sullivan Show was part of the ritual. I had seen a TV item about the Beatles before on the Jack Paar Show. But that night when The Beatles played, OMG it was like a lightning bolt went through me and woke me up. That was it. I was Hooked. Were you there?

The Beatles Tara Greene

Most of my cousins know this, that I got to see The Beatles sing four  times live, two times in one day, in Toronto at Maple Leaf Gardens because my Uncle John knew Harold Ballard who used to own the Gardens. I never screamed though. That was my first rock and roll concert ever. I started at the Top. I still have my ticket stubs and my concert  memorabilia. And I tried to sneak into The King Edward Hotel where they were staying and some guy tried to grab me and I got disgusted and left. I listen to The BEATLES all the time. I fantasized about them. I missed studying for exams to run out and buy Sergeant Pepper’s the day it was released. I drew pictures of them.  My whole young life was defined by the Beatles music like millions of other Baby Boomers. I have kept every mono album I bought then and some singles too.

I even ran away to New York City one day during the school week as I heard the Beatles were there. I had a few bucks, there was special student fares and I don’t remember how I got to the Airport. But I remember it cost $15 to fly to New York City. I walked around New York but didn’t get to see them. My Mom freaked out. It was fun. I walked around Greenwich Village by myself and saw Woody Allen on the street. I knew who Woody was, but I;d rather I;d seen the Beatles.

My Dad worked in the Toronto Stock Market and as a special gift he bought me some Stock in Northern Songs the Beatles publishing company. I have held onto these for years. I know Northern Songs got turned into Apple I believe. And Michael Jackson bought up the Beatles catalogue. Then it got sold to Sony Records. I hadn’t seen the original stock shares for years. This has haunted me.

So yesterday during a Mercury Retrograde. At my husbands urging I opened a big box of papers. I said no I have to go through everything. What if my Northern Songs certificate is there and we throw it out by accident? 

And lo and behold- in honor of the BEATLES. Here it is.

Ten shares which cost 2 shillings each. Dated May 25 1966.

The Beatles Tara Greene

I feel so grateful to have been born when I was, to know what Beatlemania as part of my life and growing up to the Beatles. Thank you John Lennon, who was my favourite, an artist, totally funny and a rebel. Paul McCartney for your songs, voice, Gemini charm. George Harrison for being reborn from an Indian spiritual man to being born in Liverpool to bring the EASTern music, meditation and customs to the West in a huge way. And Ringo thank you for just being you, keeping the beat, funny Ringo.

I took my daughter to see Paul McCartney play in Toronto 3 years ago. She was the same age I was when I saw the Beatles, so it felt right. My husband had never been lucky enough to see the Beatles play live.  I said it’s as close as you’ll get these days. I cried. We were all moved.

The world wouldn’t have been the same with out you four Liverpudlian working class boys taking on this huge mantle. You had immense talents, charisma, humour and souls. Beatles Music will always be remembered. The Modern Classical standard.

BTW Does anyone know what these 10 shares are worth? PLease let me know.

WOW 50 years. I don’t feel any older than when I was in my 40’s. Time is an illusion.

PLEASE SHARE WIDELY

More Beatles a mish mash  

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Laura Nyro,gets her Saturn Solar return due

Laura Nyro Tara Greene' s favourite singer

 
One of my favourite women singers and songwriters will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame April 14, 2012.
Laura Nyro was a child prodigy teaching herself to play piano and composed and sang her first song at eight years old.
 
Laura wrote many songs which other singers had number one hits with. Eli’s Comin’, And When I die, Stoned Soul Picnic,… and many others. She was so personal in her songwriting and aeons ahead as a feminist. A soulful r ‘n b singer, a contemporary of Joni Mitchell. I heard that Barbra Streisand used to watch Laura perform when they were both starting out. You can check out her story here.
 
They recently used one of her songs, altered slightly for GLEE,  Wedding Bell Blues. . http://rockhall.com/inductees/nominees/laura-nyro/
 
Laura was born October 18 1947 in New York.  She was a Libra, but there was no exact birth time, so her moon could have been in Late Scorpio or early Sagittarius. I was not surprised that her songs were so personal,deep, raw and intense when I saw her astrology chart.
 
Laura had a very difficult  MARS, PLUTO, SATURN conjunction in LEO. Difficult karma with men, power, shadows, authority. She had drug problems,was a heroin addict but kicked it.  All that LEO Star power- she was very much the Queen of her own career.
 
Lots of Scorpio sexual energy of course.
Mercury, Venus, Jupiter and Chiron. Her North Node was in Taurus as befits so sensual and pragmatic a singer.
She died April 8 1997 of ovarian cancer at the same age her mother did from the same disease. 
 
Laura was one of my musical heroines.  I listened to and sung along with many of her albums for hours upon hours for many years. I even named my son Elijah after her song ELI’S comin’, although i wasnt conscious of that. 
 
Interesting that after all these years, fifteen to be exact, half a Saturn return, the planet Saturn is now crossing her Natal Sun at 23 degrees of Libra and she finally gets the recognition she deserves, posthumously. Saturn represents worldly position and fame. Saturn is reality, bottom line. It works like this.
A whole new generation will get her songs. She opened up and wrote about her deepest feelings and sesires as a woman, the songs were like reading her most private diaries. Takes a lotta courage to do that. The Confession 1968, has to be the sexiest most raw song ever written.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ue4vkHSjPMU 
 
But I also loved her 60’s Motown and girl group covers he did with Patti Labelle. Here’s is It’s Gonna Take A Miracle
 
If you have Saturn and Pluto conjunctions and most of you born in 82 and 83 have this signature. You have many power and control issues, are prone to depression and have many demons and shadows to fight with internally. In Libra you are all having your first Saturn return now. Its time to grow up. You were born when the first wave of mass divorces happened as the Women’s liberation movement rippled throughout North America. So committment to relationships is not so easy for many of you. We don’t have precedent for equal balanced relationships. Your generation gets to create the first new template of equal union in LOVE.

R.I.P. Davey Jones I’m a Believer Astrology of Stars life and death by Tara Greene

Monkee davey Jones astrology

Monkee Davey Jones astrology

 
Sad to hear of British singer and former Monkees TV show star Davey Jones sudden death of a massive heart attack Feb. 29 2012 in Florida. If you were  a teenage girl in the mid 60’s THE MONKEES were a huge hit. A manufactured singing group modelled on The Beatles with zany, slapstick and a forum for showcasing their music, set in L.A. The Monkees was a pioneer as it was the first show to be built around the singing groups’ performances which are essentially promotional rock videos. Yahoo! Music named him the top teen idol of all-time in 2008. The Monkees sold 50 million records worldwide in one year 1967, out selling both the Beatles and the Rolling Stones.
 
The show’s writers and the Monkees performances spawned a number of hit songs. I’m a Believer is the most famous, more recently  revived as a hit in the first Shrek movie. Davey Jones was a jockey and a child TV show actor on the famous British Coronation Street then a stage performer starring in the London production of Oliver at 11 years old then becoming a Broadway singing star. He was chosen as a surrogate Paul McCartney with his cute looks and fab British accent.
 
As you can see Davey Jones astrology chart. I have no exact birth time so it is set with a Zero  degrees Aries Ascendant with the Sun in the 10th house for any famous person. Davey was a Capricorn an earthy hard-working responsible sort with Venus the planet of artists conjunct his Sun. Venus conjuncts the Sun gives anyone incredible charm and charisma {Whitney Houston also had a Sun Venus conjunction} and David Jones had that. A Scorpio moon also adds to the charisma, he would have desired power and gotten it, may have been quite ruthless, and have a secret dark side that no one knew about.  With his South Node in Sagittarius conjunct the Galactic Center, North Node on the North Star at 29 degrees of Gemini, Davey was a Pole Star, seen as a guiding light. This place grants the ability to ooze charm galore, have  a good sense of humour, stay always boyishly young,and  light-hearted.
Mercury in Sagittarius a love of travel, foreigners,and he gained large success in the U.S.  Davey had a 3 planet stellium in Libra, Neptune Jupiter Chiron {and Juno an asteroid} Libra’s are charming creative, have good taste, go-betweens, need other people’s approval.
 
A difficult Mars Saturn retrograde conjunction in Cancer show a hard childhood, with difficult issues with his father and authority figures, being bullied,and a strong connection to his mother. I know nothing of the actual facts of the singer’s life. Despite the urge to be noticed and loved by others, Davey was a private person and needed a lot of emotional security. Pluto in Leo is the Baby Boomers generation signature. Jones had Uranus planet of sudden change in Gemini also Retrograde opposite his Natal Mercury in Sagittarius, indicating he had a unique, expansive, ahead of his time way of thinking and acting. There was also a feminine dual nature to him.
 
The Astrology on the Day of Davey Jones death.
 
Massive sudden heart attacks would be under the planet Uranus‘s domain. Leo is the Sign ruling the heart, and the Sun rules the sign of Leo so any transits by planets to David’s Sun would be a signifying factor. The planet Pluto, I know that some astronomers changed its nomenclature but to western Astrologers Pluto is still supremely important and the Lord of Death. Any planets transitting in Virgo and affecting his natal chart would also be pinpoints to his death as they signify health weaknesses.
On Feb 29 2012 Pluto had just recently passed over Davey Jones Sun. A Pluto transit to any one’s Sun is a death and rebirth experience on many levels.
The planet Mars moving Retrograde at 15 degrees of Virgo the sign of health is exactly square { a 90 degree stressful aspect} to David’s natal Uranus and exactly square to David’s natal Mercury at 16 degrees of Sagittarius. Mars is also most powerful when moving Retrograde and it is most powerful now at the middle degree of the Sign.
As well Jupiter is at 6 degrees of Taurus, anything Jupiter touches is big, powerful, over the top. Jupiter is also square to Davey’s natal Pluto at 11 degrees also retrograde of Leo. Pluto symbolizes the soul and the sign of Leo represents the heart, vitality, the Source, fame. 
As well Saturn is  Retrograde and virtually stand-still at the last and most fateful degree of Libra conjunct Davey’s natal Jupiter. Saturn is the Grim reaper, father time, karma, endings. Saturn is also in a trine aspect a harmonious aspect  to Davey’s North Node at 29 degrees of Gemini. 
As well Uranus the planet of sudden and irrevocable change is square to Davey’s Natal Sun in Capricorn. Again the image of stress and sudden change, the Sun is the core of vitality. Venus planet of Love is at 23 degrees of Aries is opposite Davey’s natal Jupiter at 24 degrees of Libra. Indicating a big Jupiter/Venus rules the heart push/pull= heart attack.
 
In a long and philosophical message on Facebook, the fourth Monkee, Michael Nesmith, wrote, “That David has stepped beyond my view causes me the sadness that it does many of you. I will miss him, but I won’t abandon him to mortality…David’s spirit and soul live well in my heart, among all the lovely people, who remember with me the good times, and the healing times, that were created for so many, including us. I have fond memories. I wish him safe travels.”
 
Davey leaves behind 4 daughters.
 
There is an outpouring of love and fond remembrance from many former teeny-bopper fans who ate up the Monkees when they were kids.
I got to see the Monkees the one time they played Toronto on April 2, 1967 at Maple Leaf Gardens stadium. The teeny-boppers screamed more than for the Beatles. The show was fun, a huge success but lasting only 2 seasons. It has become a classic cult tv show.
 
The Monkees also made a very funky psychedelic movie called HEAD. Co-written by Jack Nicholson. It was a mis- mash of songs by many famous writers. The soundtrack includes: “Porpoise Song (Theme from Head)” (Gerry Goffin / Carole King) “Ditty Diego – War Chant” (Rafelson/Nicholson) “Circle Sky” (Michael Nesmith) “Can You Dig It” (Peter Tork) “As We Go Along” (Carole King/Toni Stern) “Daddy’s Song” (Harry Nilsson) “Long Title: Do I Have to Do This All Over Again?” (Peter Tork) Excerpts from the film, spliced in random order that is not consecutive to the movie itself.
 
Check out Head its very 60’s psychedelically trippy. Parts of it is on Youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4qUFYHPwUXs
 
Here’s the official I’m A Believer video from 1966. the song was written by Neil Diamond.
 
 
RIP Mr Jones. we will always remember your cuteness, charm, voice and natural charisma inspiring us to be Daydream Believers.
 

How to be clairvoyant by Tara Greene psychic, Tarot, intuitive, dreamer

frescoes of Giotto

As I do know that the walls of reality are swiftly tumbling down this year as consciousness will be moving as fast as a heat-seeking missile. Hollywood is allways ahead of the curve so to speak. Inception the hit of 2010 is prepping us for who knows which way is up is.

BYE BYE JUPITER-URANUS CONJUNCTION IN PISCES
Astrologically we just finished on Jan 4 on the Part Solar Eclipse, the last of 3 Jupiter Uranus conjunctions in Pisces. This major milestone shook our world, the oceans, Uranus is oneof the mythological God of the Oceans. Uranus rules technology inventions, revolutions. Jupiter, Zeus, Yahweh, Jehovah, Mr. BIG expands whatever he touches. Mr. Supersize me.
The last time Jupiter and Uranus were conjunct in Pisces was 1334.
An early Renaissance painter called Giotto invented a little thing called PERSPECTIVE. From a 2D flat world,s uddenly the third dimension could be realistically depicted in paint on frescoes. MAGIC! Yer world just went topsy-turvy.
I PREDICT the same MAGNITUDE of world changing perception directly from Neptune in Pisces. Neptune rules HOLLYWOOD, the Oceans, Oil, delusions, illusions, glamour, credit cards, addictions, prisons, karma, institutions, smoke, mirrors, magic, meditation, dreams, karma, ashrams, endings, soul mates, ONENESS, compassion, forgiveness, viruses.
Oh and did I mention the Wounded Healer Chiron re-enters Pisces soon too? On the 1st day Chiron entered Pisces April 2010, the Deepwater Horizon BP Great Gulf Oil Spill happened.

lamentation by Giotto 1330's Italy

Giotto painter Italy 14th century

The next time J + U will be conjunct in Pisces will be in 2093. I predict we will be flying to Jupiter to dine on anchovies a la Andromeda.

Meditate, watch things out of the corner of yer eyes, get quiet, walk in nature, ask for help before you got to sleep at night.
I can help.

Colours are important too, rainbows, music, beauty, bless yourself.
