April Poetic Astrology Musings from Tara Greene

“April is the cruelest month” these are the opening words from T.S. Elliot’s The Waste Land 1922.

These words popped into my head as I’ve been thinking of different ways to help guide you through this INTENSE  April Grand Cardinal Cross to the Max, 2 Eclipses this month,the 5th of 7 stations of T- Squares.

I always have known that our consciousness  and the Universe is linked up, “the as above, so below.” Thoth’s famous Hermetic maxim. The Universe is always sending us bits of information, symbolic crumbs and threads on the trail, if we see them and follow them. We all get the clues. None of us is clueless. 

 I’m trusting my guides to lead me through my desire for images, dreams, connections, textures with which to wax poetically and informatively on the revolutions of the planets on their axis, planes, nodes.. I am trying to find a context a connection and guidance from Elliot’s poem to our present situation, using it like an oracle. Hey lets just try it on for fun. 

I must confess I’m not a Literary Major. But I have always loved poetry, symbols, archeology, ancient history and mythology. The poem alludes to the Holy Grail, Ezekiel,Ecclesiastes, Tristan and Isolde,

I’ll just use the headings of T.S. Elliot’s poem for intentions and instructions.

1. BURIAL OF THE DEAD 

This is PLUTO in CAPRICORN.

Death of the old corporate Patriarchal structure, banking system, the PLUTOCRACY.  Pluto in earth sign of the world is shaking up governments, in many places and literally shaking up the earth-Earthquakes, mudslides, etc.

On a personal level, it’s the death of the old ways that do not promote new life. What do you need to let die in order to be reborn? Pluto is directly opposites the United States Sun at 13 degrees Cancer now. Rebirth of the U.S. of A.

ESPECIALLY peeps with CAPRICORN  born January 2-6 and those with planets 11-15.

I went to a shiva yesterday. In the Jewish religion, this is the seven days of mourning immediately following the funeral which must be observed. A cousin of my mother’s passed away suddenly at 83. That’s one complete cycle of Uranus.

11. A GAME OF CHESS

Isn’t life a game of chess? How about we see this as just part of the game.  MARS RETROGRADE in LIBRA. – calculating your move, it’s always a game of opposing partners. Are we moving in the right direction? Maybe the “right direction’ was wrong. Question your motivation especially in relationships.

LIBRA peeps born October 5th-10th this means YOU, and also any planets here get Retrograded- steamrolled.

111. The FIRE SERMON

URANUS in ARIES – speaking in flaming torches, firing up,inspiring the crowd- is this the U.S. backed protests in Venezuela?Uranus is squaring PLUTO and JUPITER inspiring the new LIFE FORCE, the spark.

ARIES peeps born MArch 31- April 6- you are to wake up and wake others up. Also check your chart for planets and houses.

IV. DEATH BY WATER

JUPITER in CANCER opposite PLUTO in CAPRICORN and squaring MARS and URANUS

Emotional deaths, breaking old emotionally negative contracts, those that do not support us . Letting the old emotional ties die allows us to be  more whole emotionally,  bestows upon us self esteem, unconditional love, emotional security and safety. Literally drownings, floods, over reacting emotionally. 

CANCER peeps born July 3- 8th emotional rebirth for you. Also any planets at these degrees-same thing.

V. WHAT THE THUNDER SAID

This symbolizes both Jupiter- the hurler of Lightning bolts Zeus and Uranus is the Heavenly Storm God.

Uranus the awakener, he symbolizes Higher Consciousness. Uranus in ARIES is new technologies and inventions FREEDOM and revolution.

Thunder can mean bombs, bad weather, earthquakes, awakening.

Uranus previous cycle through Aries began in 1929-1930 the Great depression, the Stock Market crash.  We are starting a new cycle built on that past.

 Also in the poem- I’m excerpting about the seer, 

“Madame Sosostris, famous clairvoyante,…

is known to be the wisest woman in Europe,

With a wicked pack of cards. Here, said she,

Here is Belladonna, the Lady of the Rocks,

the lady of situations.

Here is the man with three staves, and here the Wheel.”

The meaning I get from these lines:

Sosostris – means S.O.S.  EMERGENCY,  ostris means oestre, the pagan name for EASTER- timing!!!

Be clear- the wise woman is the anima, the intuition which every one of us has.

Belladonna is a hallucinogenic plant, or awakening the pineal gland, Inner visioning, MEDITATION.

Beautiful Lady is again the Goddess, the Soul,

Lady of the Rocks, Mother Mary, the Madonna, the Divine Feminine, our grounding.

The situation. 

These are actual Tarot Cards – the 3 of wands, which rules this exact time of year March 31- April 10.

The Wheel of FORTUNE TRUMP #10 which is ruled by JUPITER.

wheel of fortune tarot Tara Greene

Inspirational Card of the Month The Wheel of Fortune with the Flower of Life

My interpretation: This is a very fortunate opportunity. The karmic wheel is turning. Use the time wisely.

Let the poetic symbols seep into you and roll them around for a bit to taste them.

I love it. 

Let me know what you think. I’ve never approached an Astrology reading in this way before.
