Solar Eclipse Crown of Fire Meditation Intention

Total LEO Solar Eclipse of the Heart

Galactic Meditation, Intention and Initiation

A version of this was posted on the Cosmic Intelligence Agency by me Agent 129, Tara Greene

The Eclipse is very soon. Monday Aug 21 @ 10:15 am in PDT is total @ 11:30 am PDT. /Total @ 2:30 pm EDT. /6:30 pm GMT.

This very powerful eclipse has been written about by many. This is a New Moon initiation of Galactic Proportions. It also represents the closing of a cycle that began 18 years and 11 days ago on August 11, 1999.  

Leo is governed by the SUN. This New Moon in LEO becomes the black Hole Sun, turning day into night. This will be felt the most intensely on the path of greatest totality, where the the Moon’s shadow falls on the earth; a 70 miles wide swath that bisects America from West to East dividing North and South.  It is being referred to as the Great American Solar Eclipse for that reason.  The last time a total eclipse crossed the U.S. was 99 years ago. Millions of people will be gathering to be in the eclipse path there on the 21st.

We must look at the synchronicity of this event. America is already divided and polarized and requires a lot of healing. Eclipses were traditionally feared but we know they are powerful initiatory cycles. The Solar Eclipse will help to enlighten not only the U.S. but the entire world.

The Eclipsed SUN is conjunct to FIXED STAR REGULUS, the HEART of the LION and one of the 4 ancient Royal Stars. This star marks the place of  ARCHANGEL RAPHAEL, who heals the heart. Raphael extends a beautiful emerald green ray of light from this Archangels heart chakra which we will fully call into our hearts and extend that emerald healing ray of love to the world during the eclipse. How wonderful.

All eclipses alter the electromagnetic frequencies in our bodies and the earth. During totality, all of nature becomes quiet. No animals make a sound. We need to be still and silent during the eclipse.

The ECLIPSE is aligned in a GRAND FIRE TRINE with the GALACTIC CENTER @ 28 degrees SAGITTARIUS and URANUS the planet of higher consciousness freedom, innovation, and revolution at 28 degrees ARIES. According to the Mayans the GALACTIC CENTER is the source for all souls to enter and leave our Milky Way Galaxy. It is the Cosmic Yoni, the Womb of the Great mother and is the source of great cosmic wisdom and healing.

This Grand Fire Trine is a powerful message from our Central STAR and the void/womb of our Source and Center. A perfect balance of masculine Solar energy and Feminine Galactic consciousness.

We need to connect with all the Leonine qualities. Courage, pride, will power, strength, passion, Love and leadership. LEO is the sign of creativity, it rules the heart, self-expression, drama and the child; our inner and the real children who need protection and unconditional love.

August 21 2017 Solar Eclipse

As the ring of fire or diamond ring appears at eclipse totality the “As Above, So Below.” Symbol serves as a cosmic marker that everyone is being crowned in the LIGHT and becomes their own Sovereign authority living from the heart.  This profound symbol of hope tells us that in times of apparent darkness, the light always shines and triumphs.

It’s very important for as many people as possible to gather with sacred intentions in circles during the eclipse to align with these profound energies. We will all download the codes and frequencies in our consciousness on all levels. If you wish to work solo that is fine too. Listen to your own heart.

Remember to never look directly at the eclipse without protective eyewear or you will go blind.

We will honor this eclipse with ceremony because we are an intrinsic part of the turning of the cycles of time.

RITUAL DURING THE ECLIPSE

You can keep your ritual as simple as you like, just light a candle and sit facing the direction that works for you. You can be outside, or in. Read the Meditation Instructions and focus your energy in your heart. Remember that everything is intention.

Be prepared in advance before the start of the eclipse. Settle yourself or your group, get comfortable, close your eyes and take at least 12 deep, full, relaxed breaths, quietening and calming your mind and body. If you must leave the circle for any reason after you have called in the directions, angels and spirit please say. “All my ancestors.”  When you re-enter, the circle repeat the words.

PREPARATION:

Align your space with the 4 Cardinal Direction; East, South West, North. Always move clockwise in ceremonial space. Define the boundaries of your space by walking with a lit candle or sprinkle salt, sand or earth around the area you will be doing your ritual/intention.

CLEANSING YOUR SELF AND YOUR CIRCLE

Use Smudge- dried- not cooking-sage. Sweetgrass and dried cedar is a North American cleanser. Palo Santo an ancient wood from Peru, Copal or other incense. Smudge your aura and chakras and then the space.

1 or 4 Yellow or gold candles to honor the element of FIRE and the SUN.

Bring into your circle if you wish, as many colors, metals, flowers and oils to harmonize with the Leo energy.

A picture of yourself as a child. Some paper a journal and some pastels or crayons colored pencils or paints to create with.

TAROT cards

LEO is the sign of the Major Arcana of STRENGTH # 11 or 8 in the Tarot. This card traditionally shows a woman holding the jaws of a lion open or riding a lion with an infinity symbol over her head, indicating that she has learned to control her unconscious animal instincts and that she has achieved enlightenment. The LEO Court card is the Prince of Wands. The five, six and seven of Wands represent each Decan of Leo. If you have a Tarot deck pull out these cards to act as Guides and Mascots for this meditation. You can easily find these images online.

MEDITATION GUIDE

 

MUSIC: A trance drum heartbeat, or active meditation music. You can pre-record these instructions with pauses to listen to as you do the meditation.

After you have smudged. Light your candles one by one. I always start in the EAST where the Sun rises and move clockwise. Different traditions, and Pagans use different directions and associations. Start with the direction and element that works for you.

Call in the four elements, the four directions, spirits and Four Archangels into your sacred circle. In their traditional and Zodiacal order:

MICHAEL in the EAST {Taurus}

GABRIEL in the SOUTH {Aquarius}

RAPHAEL in the NORTH {Leo}

URIAL/Ariel in the WEST {Scorpio}

You can call on any Lion spirit animals or Gods and Goddesses. DURGA who defeats all demons should be called into your meditation riding her Lion. Her mantra, HEY MATTA DURGA, repeat 4 x’s. You can find these sacred chants on YouTube.

Begin to breathe, naturally deeply, sending your breath down your spine into your 1st root chakra, down your spine, ruled by Leo, into Mother earth to ground you. Mother earth also has a heart flame at her center. Go down deeper and deeper past the rocks crystals and minerals and merge with her liquid iron molten core which is her heart.  You can ask Mother Earth if she needs you to do something for Her. Wait and see if something happens. If you feel or sense nothing it’s OK. Trust that you are receiving something on an unconscious level. Thank Mother Earth, Gaia.

Breathe into your 3rd chakra spending more time here. This chakra 2 finger widths below your navel symbolizes your inner sun and your spiritual umbilicus and will power connecting your spirit to the cosmos.

Then breathe the heart/earth/fire energy back up through your root chakra bringing a fiery warmth up through each chakra, one at a time from the root to your HEART CHAKRA. This Chakra’s color is emerald green, sometimes tinged with pink. You may feel your heart expand open and feel strengthened.

Feel and sense your heart. In your imagination go into your heart. Enter the walls of your heart and note the four chambers. You will hear the loud pounding and the swishing of your blood flowing. Sense the walls of your hearts’ inner landscape. Let go of any mental resistance and allow yourself to be present in your heart scape. Follow your subtle feelings. You may enter any chamber of your heart or just stay centered there. Feel one with the drum beat of your heart. This was the sound we all heard when we were in our mother’s wombs.

If it feels right, you can call for a feline spirit animal to come to accompany you. Be open. A lion or a kitten, panther, lioness or cheetah may appear as the spirit of Leo. If no animal appears, just stay in your heart and breathe love. If there are blocks, resistance or pain, call Archangel Raphael to heal you. If you need to cry, do so, as this is a time to express your feelings fully. It’s a time of transitions and letting go.

At the time of the totality imagine your heart connecting with the Black SUN, and the Grand Fire Trine with the Cosmic Yoni/ black Hole/void of the Galactic Center and Uranus. Call in Archangel Raphael and the Lion spirits. Really open yourself fully to receive whatever impressions, sensations, images or words come through to you. This is a huge galactic download. Feel your heart swell with love and strength. Feel, send and see yourself and the entire planet immersed in an emerald Green ray of Love.

From the healing ray of Unconditional Love and send the intention with your will/ solar 3rd chakra, that you and every living person lives and acts from their Hearts 100% of the time. Intend that all humans recognize their own spiritual Light and inner authority. Intend that we all awaken NOW to an enlightened consciousness of love, Oneness and unity under the SUN. Intend that Love is the Higher Law; that creativity, passion, bliss, protecting the children and our Mother the Earth are our sacred duties.

Visualize and feel everyone on the earth absorbing the Heart Unity and love/bliss as the electro-magnetic frequencies are altered. Feel tenderness, strength, courage, healing and passion pumping in your veins. Vow to love yourself and others more. Vow to love everything under the Sun as sacred. Vow to be the star in your own life and your own movie. You are Sovereign. Vow to be a sacred artist and to create and co-create. Dance, sing and drum in circles all of the time. Vow to “Follow your bliss” as Joseph Campbell famously said.

At the end of the eclipse close your ceremony thanking the spirits Angels and elements for being in your circle. Release and thank each one out loud back to their direction, from where you began. At the end of the ceremony say, “May the circle be open but unbroken. Thank you. It is finished in beauty. Aho.”

Write down, draw, sing or dance your experience to record it.

I will be in a sacred circle in the country during the eclipse.

Blessings,

TARA

Venus is DIRECT! heart matters move astrology

.

love, heart, Venus  moves forward, March.

 

 

VENUS is Direct finally Sept 6 @14+ degrees LEO. The planet will reappear from the Underworld, reborn afresh in 5-7 days in the morning sky as Beautiful Venus Phosphorus The Light BRINGER.”

This Venus Retrograde cycle tracks us back to events, loves, relationships of all kinds, values, creativity and financial issues from 8 years ago. Venus Stations Retrogade in the same place in the zodiac every 8 years so its the same place in your natal chart. You could look back to 8, 16 or more years to see what was happening in your love life and finances at those times.

See how Venus Rx affects you trhough sign and house aspects in my article https://infinitynow.wordpress.com/2015/08/31/venus-and-marslovers-reunite-drama/.

But Venus will take until October 8th to return to Zero degrees Virgo where she originally turned Retrograde and everything in her reign can really advance.

I know many relationships have ended and been in the balance over the last few weeks. I have felt Venus retrograde to be like a Mercury Retrograde in that everything I value has been delayed or slowed. Have you found this too?  

In my personal life, Venus Rx has had my husband in Sedona Arizona for the past two weeks because he needed some down time which I felt he deserved, to have some space, do some writing and photography and play music, recoup and get ready for his next art show {Venus rules artists} opening Sept 11. at Angell Gallery in Toronto at its new location. Come to the opening.

Opening reception Friday September 11 from 6 to 9pm

continues  until October 10, 2015

NEW LOCATION: 1444 Dupont Street, Unit 15, Toronto, Ontario, M6P 4H3

He is also showing with  New York artist Bradley Wood,

Zero degrees Virgo is also where the Fixed Star Regulus now resides. Angel Raphael Angel of the heart. So her journey symbolizes turning back to the Heart healing of  Leo to cleanse the ego. The world’s response to the photo of the little Syrian refugee boys drowning is also a manifestation of this heart, cleansing, egoless compassionate response.  

Venus will be square Saturn in Sagittarius as she crosses her Retrograde point

VENUS and MARS have another conjunction November 2nd at 23 degrees VIRGO.

This degree is being triggered by the Partial Solar Eclipse September 13 at 20+ degrees Virgo. 

It would be good to set new intentions at this new Moon eclipse which will come into manifestation from the Source, the Sun, into the balance of the masculine and feminine in early November. I will write about a ritual for this. 

Venus has two aspects besides being Venus Lucifer the Evening or wishing star and Venus Phosphorus the Light bringer. 

Socrates and other Greek philosophers determined that there were two Aphrodite’s.

Venus, as an aspect of The Great Goddess  has many aspects and origins and her attributes change throughout history. She was originally the Semitic Queen of the Heavens, fertility and war like Godddess  Astarte or Ishtar. 

Venus/Ishtar/Astarte had major temples at Athens and Corinth which housed her sacred sexual priestesses or Heirodules. Every woman served as a Priestess in her Temples before being able to marry.  Men who had been to war came to be cleansed by have sacred sex with her Goddess representatives before being able to re-enter society.  

 

The higher, more spiritual form of love is Aphrodite Ourania, representing Celestial or spiritual love.

Venus Urania Tara Greene

She was born of the severed genitals of her father. Chronos/SATURN severed his father Uranus’s genitals and threw them into the sea. This is the famous Birth of Venus formed from the sea-foam{ semen} that most of us our familiar with. Venus was born parthenogenisis from the ocean of the unconscious on a half shell, { a vulva}. Her Priestesses were also supposedly able to give birth parthenogenicaly as in the story of Mary who was also a sacred Priestess. Virgin meant an independent woman, and one who was dedicated to the goddess. Ourania also rules Astrology. This is from her ancient Babylonian origins. 

The other “lesser” Aphrodite is Venus Pandemos, meaning”of the people” Pan means across, or middle but also the God Pan. This Goddess was born from the sexual union of Zeus and the Goddess Dione, meaning a God { Dios} , spiritual love.  She presides over the love of sexuality, motherhood, family and everyday man a more human kind of love. 

Does this make sense to you to split love into two aspects? Obviously this a mind body spirit later patriarchal split. The Goddess always has a light/dark aspects. Love/ war/ birth/death.

Venus, loose women, Retrograde lovers

April 15

 

I’m feeling up getting some very good news today. I cant talk about it.

Venus in GEMINI  is opposite Saturn today making for a very karmic day. Do not tell any  fibs today. Aim higher, open your mind, inspiration is all around. Speak your truth and no double talk. The Moon in Pisces meets Neptune, Venus’s HIGHER OCTAVE early in the day.

 We may feel awash in imagination, as if we are in a waking dream, huge romance potential today. Yes can let yourself get lost in a fantasy today because Saturn does have your back. Its a good day to meditate and to lose yourself in Source energy.  Build a new real dream, put flesh on its bones. Intention is everything. Saturn will make it so.

Venus goes Out of Bounds today. Get outside your hearts’ comfort zone.

Out of bounds astrology Tara Greene

This is a recent Astrological addition to the lexicon.  OOB means planets going North or South of 23 degrees 27 minutes of declination from the celestial equator. These time periods indicate that a planet has been let loose to wander, freed up from its usual path, having its blinders taken off, not acting from its normal frame of reference.  This has nothing to do with where Venus is moving through the signs of the Zodiac. Venus is visible in the evening now. 

Venus will be O.O. B. till June 1st. Then Mars goes OOB June 6 – July 16. 

Forget the waist training ladies. Pack on a few pounds if it tickles your fancy. Be footloose and fancy free. Throw off the old shackles of the love sick blues and say Fuck that. You are free to be you.

Venus rules all the goodies. Love, romance, money, luxury, women, art. So as Venus moves out of her usual frame of reference, she lets her hair down and is very unpredictable. This means the Financial markets will be more wild crazy and unstable than usual.

VENUS will also go RETROGRADE this year, mark these dates! BRINGING SEXY BACK

Venus by Velasquez art Astrology Tara Greene

 June 21  Venus enters the Rx zone at  14 Leo 23′ 

July 25  Venus goes Retrograde 00 Virgo 46’Rx on the Fixed star of Kings and Queens REGULUS aka Angel Raphael who heals hearts with his emerald green ray.  This is very symbolic of great heart healing on this planet.

September 6   Venus Stationary Direct @ 14 Leo 23′

October 9 Venus leaves her Retrograde zone at  00 Virgo 46 ‘

Venus is Retrograde for 7-8% of the time,  less than any other planet.

Were you born under a Venus Retrograde? Venus has two beautiful phases, one in which she is Venus Lucifer the Morning star and Venus Hesperus the Eveening star. To find out which type of Venus you have is easy.  First locate the Sun in your natal chart. If Venus is clockwise from the Sun, your Venus type is Lucifer, the Morning Star. If Venus is positioned counterclockwise from the Sun, your Venus type is of Hesperus, the Evening Star. These two types of Venus phases have two very different types of acting and expressing themselves.  I’ll write more about that later.

Mark these areas on you natal chart now. Which house or houses will Venus be Retrograde in?

Venus Retrograde is a time to RE-EVALUATE LOVE and to look back on our relationships, review, relax, reset the romance button. 

Values change in love and relationships especially. Venus retrogrades from Virgo which is about work, and your daily routine. Virgo is very disciplined, humble, organized, health and environmentally and community conscious, earthy and needing to serve others. Venus moving back into the infantile, fixed, negative of-  its all about me Leo,shows the  selfish, SELFIE, vain, boasting, bossy, bullying, egotistic, acting entitled, and all that DRAMA. OMG it will look so cheap and tawdry through the rear view mirror and we will see all those reality show for what they are. Cheap distractions. All that glitters is not gold.  We will review all of our own dramas and find them a waste of time and energy. Yes friends, colleagues, and family allegiances will shift because of this retrograde. Venus in Leo will bring you bravery and strong will power.

Think ahead about how you can bring more beauty and creativity into your life. You can revisit your queen or kingdom from your throne and see if you are a wise ruler and leader. What do you stand for? 

where is your heart? What is worthy of your passion, life blood, and will power? 

start asking these questions now.

Some famous people with Venus Retrograde

Ellen DeGeneres, has Venus Rx in Aquarius, Mila Kunis Venus Retro in Virgo 

Audrey Hepburn has Venus Rx in Aries,  Jody Foster Venus Rx in Scorpio

Robert DeNiro Venus Rx in Virgo, Jack Nicholson Venus Rx in Aries

Adolf Hitler Venus Rx in Taurus, Courtney Love has Venus Lucifer conjunct Mars in the 8th house

2oth century abstract Russian artist Wassily Kandinsky was born with Venus evening star conjunct a Retrograde Mercury in Sagittarius. One of my favourite artists.
