Day of the Dead Retrograde Psychopomp

November 1st, All Saint’s Day originated as a very ancient pagan festival which today in Mexico is a two-day Festival to honor and celebrate those ancestors who have passed on from this world. To the Native Indios in Mexico and throughout Central America death was never an end to Life but only a beginning, a transition back to Source and on to another life. Most indigenous people world-wide honor their departed relations, and remember them not only on one or two days in the year but daily, setting plates of food for them at the table after they have  passed into the Spirit world.

November 1st Mercury has just turned Retrograde on Halloween at the 27th degree Scorpio the sign of death, making this Day of the Dead even stronger as the veils between the world’s are thinnest integrating the Scorpio Death and rebirth motif.

MERCURY Hermes or Thoth, the Divine messenger was one of the Few Greek Gods who was also a Psychopomp. This title means that he could travel into the Underworld, the realm of the Dead, Hades, and return to the Upperworld at will.

This is a wonderful day to commune in seances, to do mediumship work, and to dream of your ancestors as the veil between the worlds is thinnest.

In  China, 3 oranges are usually left as an offering to feed the departed spirits, whose help from the other dimensions is of great value. Aborigines, shamans, ordinary people tap into the knowledge of their departed loved one’s spirits regularly who protect, watch over and guide them.

November 1st, Dia de Los Muertos in Mexico is celebrated by the wearing of wooden skull masks called calacas and dances to honour of their deceased relatives are held. Wooden skulls are placed on special family alters. Sugar skulls, marked with the names of the deceased on the forehead are eaten by a relative or friend. It’s a kind of ritual cannibalism, the eating of an effigy of the dead means that a person’s spirit is within you, feeding you.

Ancient Aztec civilizations held the festival on the 9th month of the Aztec solar calendar, approximately at the beginning of August and was celebrated for an entire month, ruled by Goddess Mictecacihuatyl. She is known as the Lady of the Dead and was believed to have died in childbirth. So the festival was traditionally in honor of children who also had died at birth. Rituals were also dedicated to Huitzilopochtli { Sinister Hummingbird} a war deity.

Christianized to coincide with All Saint’s Day or All Hallows Eve, in Spanish: “Día de Todos Santos, Mexicans now celebrate the day of the dead during the first two days of November.

There is also the Saint of Death.

Mictecacihuatl pronounced ‘Meek-teka-see-wahdl’  is Queen of Mictlan the Underworld, called Hades in Greek Mythology, ruled by PLUTO/ SCORPIO in modern Astrology, she rules the Afterlife.  Mictecacihuatl was represented as a skeleton with jaw agape to swallow the stars during the day.

Mictecacihuatl Lady/Saint of the Dead

On November 1st and 2nd Mexicans visit the cemetery where their loved ones are buried. They decorate gravesites with marigold flowers and candles. They bring toys for dead children and bottles of tequila to adults. They sit on picnic blankets next to gravesites and eat the favorite food of their loved ones. It is a time of celebration.

The ancient festival is also being honoured by Native and Afro- Americans. Incense is also offered, and the deceased favourite music and foods are cooked for them.

Honouring Your dead Ancestors

It’s many years since Dec 14, 2011, when my Dad passed away and even more years since my mother passed away Sept. 18, 2009. I am an only child and my husband and I were caretaking my mother up until her death and my Dad after he was in a nursing home for the last years of his life.  I have tracked them since their passing. On this night I honour my parents, my aunts and uncles and friends who have passed on. Also, those who inspired me, artists, musicians, poets, inventors.

Take time out to honor your ancestors too or those who have gifted Life and have now departed. On these days Light a candle, meditate on your departed loved ones. Thank them with thanks gratitude and reverence. If you have had a miscarriage or abortion allow tears and the sadness to move through you. This is  a real grief that women are not allowed to honour. These days are specifically for children who died.

When the veil between the worlds is thinnest, the departed will most naturally speak to you in dreams and leave signs. You just have to ask. Nothing to be afraid of. Modern Western civilization fears death, and are cut off from the  wisdom that the spirits of the ancestors bring. Death is merely a transition to another dimension. In fact the dead are always very close at hand. To fear death is to fear life, sexuality, pleasure, embodiment.

In Astrology the realms of death and the dead are traditionally under the Rulership of SATURN who was known as The Grim Reaper. Saturn rules the physical plane, the bones, time, old age.  After the discovery of Pluto’s,he became known in Astrology as the Lord of the Dead as he was in ancient mythology. It will be very interesting when Saturn enters his own sign of Capricorn on December  19, 2017. 
All of us will die and transition into other dimensions and some of us may come back. Most of us do , as we already have.  You know this, you are cosmic star dust from the beginning of the Universe. YOU are all One with ALL THAT IS WAS and ever will be.

Day of the dead, All soul’s day sexting

We are at the 11th month.   November 1st is the Day of the Dead  in MEXICO

It is of ancient pagan roots, like Samhain. 

 Traditionally intact cultures always honor their departed ancestors. It’s a huge celebration with sugar skulls, marigolds, and picnicking at cemeteries with the whole family.

The origins of the modern holiday dates back thousands of years to an Aztec festival dedicated to a Goddess called Mictecacihuatl. She is the Queen of the Underworld, presiding over Festivals of the Dead. Known as the Lady of the Dead or Santa Muerte, she is a skeletal figure who used to be privately worshipped at home alters, now she is seen in public in Mexico. She would seem very cool to lots of hipsters these days.

Inspirational Card of the Day

Day of the Dead Astrology Tara Greene

 

It seems more holistic to have a Goddess of the dead rather than Patriarchal old Pluto. I just realized that his snatching of Persephone to the Underworld must be the in-story explaining how the patriarchy took over from the original Matriarchal cultures, when Persephone Herself was Queen of the Dead, and her mother Ceres the Goddess of Life.

Women ruled both poles of Life, Life and Death. Women were traditionally the midwives bringing in new life and the death escorts, the medicine women, herbalistas and shamans who helped people to make passage from the physical world back  to spirit and the Goddess from whence they came. 

SEXTILING day aka sexting

GREAT DAY for you to prove to yourself that spirit is real.

Moon is in PISCES as of 12:37 pm EDT which is so proper for communing with spirits of the dead.

VENSU SEXTILES PLUTO

LOVE AND DEATH – the title of a Woody Allen movie which is also relevant to the Persephone/Pluto myth

 MARS sextiles NEPTUNE in PISCES  

tantric sexuality adds further fodder for grounding that woo woo energy.

Moon conjuncts NEPTUNE-

Yes you too can be a medium. , tune in , ask for answers

Moon sextiles MARS in Capricorn-

yes it is real.

Very psychic energy it is the gateway to the realms BEYOND,

we are all actually spirits temporarily experiencing this material plane.

The SPIRITUAL PSYCHIC Energies continue tomorrow.

DO pay attention to your dreams tonight

incubate your dreams an optimum night for Lucid Dreaming

 trust that the other dimensions are right beside you

DEAD CAN DANCE – Yulunga SPirit Dance 

 

 

Venus Point, Scorpio decan, cups

well that Zero degrees Scorpio solar eclipse felt pretty intense to me. YOU?

We have shifted out of the LIBRA air element and in to deep SCORPIO emotional waters of the womb of birth and the womb of death for the next month + VENUS and the mOon  right now..

Moon is Trine to Neptune Oct 24

Moon sextiles Pluto and trines Chiron

we will make sense of the deep deadly waters. blood, and sweat spilled.

RIP to the poor Canadian soldier killed on Parliament Hill and the other killed in Quebec, 

Scorpio Moon is quincunx Uranus

some changes are easier than others.

In the Tarot specific COURT cards and minor cards rule the decans -which are 10 degrees of the Zodiac and 3 decans per sign. A total of 36 decans in total. 

The first 10 degrees of SCORPIO is ruled by the PRINCE OF CUPS

 

The Prince of Cups is very much Prince GALAHAD from the GRAIL legend. He is the son/lover of Elaine and Lancelot renowned for his gallantry and his purity. Even though he was conceived in deceit, he symbolizes innocence. He alone is the chosen one who as another like King Arthur can pull the sword from the stone and as a Knight of the Round Table he goes to seek and finally sees the Grail. He is the only one worthy enough and Galahad ascends to Heaven as he was granted the wish to choose his own death.

WHAT is the Holy GRAIL?

Originally the cup which Jesus drank from at The last Supper and which Joseph of Arimathea used to collect Jesus blood at the crucifixion, to Christians it is the holiest of symbols,signifying the receptacle of union with God. Some say it is entirely mythological some say it is real and the Knights Templar had it in their keeping and it is secreted away still.

What is the Holy Grail to you? What does it symbolize? Can you imagine such a thing? 

What would you be willing to do to for that UNION with God in whatever form you have of it?

What would you do to see it? taste it? touch it? Hold it? Become it?

It can also symbolize the beloved, a real human being personifying the qualities of the Holy Grail.

This card also symbolizes embracing one’s own passion and desire. 

Venus will be under the rulership of the Galahad Prince of CUPS energy until November 1st ALL SAINT’s DAY.

The Sun until November 2nd.

It’s equal to 10:52 pm EDT, and 1:52 am { PDT -7 hours} November 1st which is ALL Saint’s Day /the Day of the Dead in Mexico.

THE VEIL BETWEEN THE WORLD’S IS THINNEST on these days. Do meditate.

November 1st is one of the biggest days in Astrology this year- I’ll keep it separate

Halloween astrology chart Tara Greene

Moon’s in Libra October 31

We’re trying to balance it. Librans should be hosting Halloween parties and in their glory gory.

But this is most definitely a Bloody red MARTIAN infused Halloween.  

MARS RULES SCORPIO and you know what the planetary line up is right now. Sun, Mercury- exact conjunction tomorrow! Saturn and North Node.

Mars in VIRGO- persnickety, worrisome, futzing the details, hard-working Halloween/NEW YEAR.

Do be careful of how much candy or alcohol you consume as MARS in VIRGO means plenty of stomach aches, food poisoning etc.

Definitely that bad apple energy. Be vigilant with what you child brings home.

I predict many extra-exotically costumed E.T’s, Martians, Arcturians, Sci- fi characters, Al, Flukeman,   etc. 

 

Flukeman X files Astrology Tara Greene

FLUKEMAN from the X-Files

Mars TRINES PLUTO and opposed Chiron earlier Halloween day- big riches and healing opps.

Mars quincunx’s URANUS in ARIES in the a.m. Pretty grouchy, off kilter, wacky energy tonight. Anything is possible.

MARS and Pluto are exactly TRINE at number 9,number 9, number 9…

Mars is opposite Neptune in PISCES – super psychic , woo- woo, you will definitely see ghosts and goblins, 

Your hair will rise on end, prepare to be freaked out.  You may photograph spirits and orbs,

You will hear weird creaking sounds, moaning from graveyards, get answers from the OUIJA board, but I recommend you

NEVER USE A OUIJA BOARD, they attract very low-level entities.

If you do a séance be prepared to be converted. 

Halloween has the CARDINAL CROSS energy which is EXACT November  1st

INTENSE.

Libra moon quincunx Chiron in Pisces – a great deal of healing, forgiveness and compassion is available if you don’t fight it. November 1st EDT.

Libra moon Squares Pluto- Lord of the Dead- ask for forgiveness. November 1 EDT

Moon opposes URANUS at 10:27 pm PDT

there may be some weird horrow show that actually happens, a bombing, some crazed maniac with a real chain saw, stabbings!

I hope not. At very least people will be erratic and unpredictable.

VENUS is conjunct the Galactic Centre. Use this energy. Download GALACTIC LOVE.

Don’t leave home without your invisibility cloak and broom.

HAPPY SAMHAIN. I am a green witch.

I will be leading a seance at Hart House, Univercity of Toronto and calling in Vincent Massey’s ghost.

Go to a cemetery and  celebrate with your ancestors.  It’s DAY OF THE DEAD tomorrow. Eat sugar skulls.
