April Fool’s Astrology by Tara Greene

April begins with April Fools Day and the Fool is the symbol of ENLIGHTENMENT , the first and last Tarot card. It is the Zero, aught, open, void, vagina, very first Trump Arcana in the Tarot. It is also Major ARCANA Number #22.

THE FOOL Tara Greene

We will be needing the Fool’s knowledge of staying in the moment throughout April as it is full or turnabouts with MARS PLUTO AND MERCURY going Retrograde, a triple threat. I will write a long SEXUAL RETROGRADE preview tomorrow.  For Scorpio and ARIES this is really intense for your signs. TAURUS, VIRGO, CAPRICORN and SAGITTARIUS all have RETROGRADE Planets too.

April Fools for love, be in the now

It’s April 1st, April Fools day!  CELEBRATE!

April Fool's Day Tarot Tara Greene

RIDER WAITE TAROT TRUMP # 0 and #22 

Celebrated since 1300’s, the Romans’ had a special day called the Hilaria, thousands of years ago. Various culture’s always had a special day for tomfoolery, switching roles and playing practical jokes.

The Fool, is also the Joker whose symbol survives onto modern playing cards. The Fool is  a Trickster a very important archetype from many cultures. The God LOKI is a trickster God in Norse mythology. The coyote trickster tales of Native American  wisdom is another. He is a god and yet not, he can change genders, he often gets him or herself into a mess. He can be a clown teacher and we learn from the clown’s crazy antics, a coyote or the Fool’s mistakes. 

The trickster is known as Nezha in Chinese mythology carrying a cosmic ring around his shoulder. In Japan he is known as Kitsune.  Bugs Bunny, Wile E. Coyote, Kokopelli in South- West stories, Steve Martin in The Pink Panther character, Jerry Lewis’s comedy and many cartoons portray the trickster/fool archetype which we laugh at to laugh at ourselves. 

The Joker can also symbolize Death and treachery and have a very dark side like the villain in Batman, especially the one portrayed by Heath Ledger. 

The Fool emanates from the Top of the Tree of Life from the Godhead directly. He is like the planet Mercury, a mercurial always changing element. We can allow our minds to play tricks on us.

 The TAROT, that archetypal road to enlightenment has THE FOOL as its first and last symbol. Both zero and #22 a Master number.  Zero is the void, nothing, infinity, the circle, naught, no ego, no past, no future, being in the NOW. 

Traditionally the Fool in the Tarot is a young man in tattered clothing carrying all his worldly belongs in a tiny sack and stepping naively off of a cliff with a little dog {his instincts} biting at his heels. 

 The Trickster is a wounded and the whole child. He symbolizes the eternally young soul bravely entering a new incarnation carrying hardly any baggage.

Today Be the Fool, a Merry Prankster, a Joker, be a fool for love. Be a Fool because who really cares what other people think? be in the NOW. THE FOOL symbolizes enlightenment. 

Be The FOOL which is like the Inner child, naive, open, innocent. The Fool’s counterpart or shadow is the KING, The EMPEROR #4 which symbolizes power, authority, the leader, like Putin or Obama.

The King always had court jester’s by his side to keep him humble. In archetypal symbolism the FOOL is really the wise one, whose instincts and pure knowledge are wide open and untainted by expectations, whereas the Emperor is the ego, and can become over inflated with his own power and authority. 

ENJOY this day.  Act like an Idiot.

Steve Martin The Fool Pink Panther

TOTAL Lunar Eclipse Blood Moon Grand Cardinal Cross by Tara Greene

PLEASE NOTE

I have edited and condensed this  article so it is really JUST about the Lunar Eclipse APril 15

We are all being pounded in the pestle and mortar, held, focused and initiated in the Cross Hairs of the COSMIC CRUX.  It’s Grand, Cardinal and two very powerful eclipses occur on APRIL 15 and April 29. We are being pushed, squeezed, wrung out, to the greatest  metamorphic evolution.

PLUTO, one of the major players in this long evolutionary dance Turns RETROGRADE on April 14- September 22 helping us to let go of that which no longer serves the higher evolutionary nature of these times. We must release the past before we can truly venture into a new soul filled life that we decide how we want to live it. There will be no thread to follow to help us out of the labyrinth. We must learn to trust deep, dark, moist, internal, authentic soul wisdom in order to evolve.

There are 4 squares and 2 OPPOSITIONS. WE MUST INTEGRATE ALL OF IT. It AIN’T EASY. But the best way to do it is to know, trust, be excited about the UNKNOWN, the BIG ADVENTURE  and to want to grow to become something bigger and better and grander than you have ever imagined. Death and Birth are inextricably inter-twined. Yin and Yang. 

The 4 CARDINAL  GUARDIANS of the 4 elements and directions are Uranus in Aries, Jupiter in Cancer, Mars in Libra and Pluto in Capricorn all at 12-16 degrees, but with the 2 main long-term evolutionary players- Uranus and Pluto at 13 degrees CARDINAL.

There hasn’t been a Grand Cardinal Cross like this since January 29, 1910 when Jupiter was at 14 degrees Libra,  Saturn was at 17 degrees Aries  Uranus was at 22 degrees Capricorn and Neptune was at 17 degrees of Cancer.  SO check out where these degrees fall in your astrology charts.  Those with planets at these middle and most powerful CARDINAL degrees will feel the pressure building to a crescendo. Many of my clients are seeing their lives fall apart, and need to feel hope, need to feel past the fear, need to understand the Feminine way that death- PLUTO-  is a necessary step to all new life.   I am here to help -see below.

APRIL 15 features a very long TOTAL BLOOD RED LUNAR ECLIPSE @ 25+ degrees  LIBRA  

exact at 12:42 am PDT/ 3:42 am EDT/ 7:42 am GMT

which kicks off a  TETRAD of  4 consecutive total lunar eclipses in a row in 2014- 2015 with no intervening partial eclipses. This phenomena won’t occur again till another 100 years. April 15 is also the beginning of PASSOVER in the Jewish Calendar. The next Total Lunar Eclipse is October 8 at 15 degrees Aries. 

Some Jews and Christians are expecting the synchronicity of the BLOOD RED MOON with Passover as being part of the prophecy of Revelations. 6:12. “Then I saw Him open the sixth seal. A violent earthquake occurred; the sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair; the entire moon became like blood.”

The ECLIPSE will be visible across North America-see map

Lunar Eclipse Blood Moon Astrology Tara Greene

The places where the eclipse will be totally visible is where its impact will be the strongest. And the places blind to the eclipse will not be affected as strongly- Note Eastern Africa, the Middle East, India,most of Russia, some of Asia. 

I will write a separate article about the planetary lines and the places these effect.

The eclipse will be exact total at 12:43 am PDT but will have at totality for 1 hour and 17 minutes. The eclipse is said to have its effects last a year for every minute of totality.

The last Total Lunar Eclipse in this Saros cycle 122 was on April 4 1996. Where were you then? An entire cycle of 18 years is completed.  This specific Saros cycle began in April 14 1022. Before the Crusades.

THIS IS A VERY POWERFUL Lunar Eclipse in so many ways. Lunar eclipses change and AMPLIFY the electro magnetic frequencies between the SUN MOON and the earth and in our own internal bodies.

The Full Moon which always symbolizes FEMININE FERTILITY literally is the ripe egg in the sky awaiting fertilization. WOMEN are the MOON. At the Lunar Eclipse, the MOON’s reflected bright light is shrouded behind the veil of the earth’s shadow.

What is in the Unconscious, the instincts, the deep feelings that are the Moon are  stirred up allowing the unconscious to rise up as the Moon pulls the Ocean’s tides to fullness, we are also in that flow.  A BLood Red Moon is a symbolic MENSTRUATING FULL MOON, a kind of hybrid as the New Moon is the menstrual phase. We have both here-total fertility and the absence of it when the uterine lining is shed resulting in the life-giving, sacred MOON BLOOD at the same time.

In ALCHEMY the White colour is sperm. Red is always blood and specifically menstrual blood.  Putting the two together is the card of TEMPERANCE in the TAROT # 14  this creates the SACRED MARRIAGE or ALCHEMY where one becomes the other. 

WOMEN’s SACRED BLOOD MOON

This eclipse unveils and  symbolizes a renewed instinctual knowledge for women aligning with the sacredness of their own bleeding times, with the Moon, in harmony with the natural order and cycles of the earth, nature, our own psychic energy, intuition, feelings, and remembering our sacred bodies,our wholeness, honoring that which is Feminine once again. 

ECLIPSE SPECIALS

I WLL BE IN SEDONA ARIZONA for both eclipses doing rituals and ceremony’s as I am being called by spirit to do so.   I am offering special Sedona healing SACRED VORTEX readings and personal healing sessions and cleansing womb sessions for women. To be on the red rocks on a full Blood red LUNAR ECLIPSE is going to be amazing..

STAY TUNED I know there will be an e-book, MP3’s guided Mediations, and chants coming out of this. I made a sacred vow 22 years ago to help women honor their sacred MOON TIME  when I was graced by an amazing experience during a Women’s Shamanic healing workshop. It’s coming out in the book.

CERES the dwarf planet and GODDESS of the EARTH is exactly conjunct the MOON at 25 degrees Libra. 

VESTA the Vestal Virgin is at 23 degrees LIBRA 

She of the sacred Sexual Tantric mysteries; when priestesses embodying the Goddess cleansed men through Sacred SEXUAL Tantric rites when they were at their most powerful, when they were “on their moon” bleeding in order to cleanse them after they had been to war and to teach men to become enlightened in this manner.

ERIS GODDESS of DISCORD is opposite Ceres and VESTA and the Moon at 22 degrees of ARIES- and she will stir up trouble if she isn’t honored.You may remember her as the 13th Fairy in the SLEEPING BEAUTY story. She warns of the Dark Feminine’s curses if ignored.

JUNO SACRED GODDESS of Women’s GENIUS is at 23 degrees of ARIES opposite the Moon CEREs and VESTA and the SUN is at 25 degrees ARIES.

ATHENA is at 25 degrees LEO squaring Saturn Retrograde at 21 Scorpio. LILITH is at 4 degrees of LEO and she is squaring the NORTH NODE at 28 degrees Libra.

LILITH the ORIGINAL WOMAN the rejected NATURAL WOMAN she is gives birth to all, who was rejected, demonized, feared for her sexuality, power and beauty is bringing tension to our relationships. 

A LIBRA NORTH NODE with a RETROGRADE MARS is really having us slow down and re-evaluate, renegotiate, reflect, renew, review, relegate, rest, rejuvenate, redux, refute, regurgitate the MAsculine and FEMININE balance. This affects personal, career, business, money, emotional, physical and spiritual matters.
