Sun square Pluto, soul ecology

SUN and PLUTO face off October 11 and 12th
Big power struggles on the world’s stage and in personal issues.

The Sun is the Light and Pluto is the Lord of death and rebirth.  

Use the Sun force to light the way in the darkness to bear your shadows, descent and fears. The sun in any sign is always the light and a powerful daylight consciousness. Face the darkness, the unknown and the Void bravely knowing that the Light will always shine. The Void itself is the source of all light.

Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Jupiter are all in Scorpio. The snake symbolizes transformation death and rebirth. Was the original symbol of women’s monthly menstruation cycles, kundalini energy and change. There’s lots of that energy right now.

600 year evolution of Tarot Card art

The Radical, 600-Year Evolution of Tarot Card Art

Read some of the article here or read the entire article on its original website. https://www.artsy.net/article/artsy-editorial-radical-600-year-evolution-tarot-card-art

What would Antoine Court de Gébelin think of the Happy Squirrel?

De Gébelin was a Protestant minister born in the 18th century. He authored the multi-volume tome Le Monde primitif, which insisted that the tarot deck contained secrets of the ancient Egyptians, whose priests had distilled their occult wisdom into the cards’ illustrations, imbuing them with great mystical power. Before that point, tarot was primarily a card game—meant for fun, not prophecy.

It was a bold and somewhat absurd assertion, given that de Gébelin could not read Egyptian hieroglyphics (no one could at the time, since they weren’t deciphered until the 19th century). Despite a total lack of historical evidence to back his claim, the theory stuck: Tarot decks, once a novelty, became popular tools for divination after the publication of de Gébelin’s book.

Which brings us back to the Happy Squirrel, a relatively recent addition to the tarot’s Major Arcana, and one whose provenance is less hazy: it originated on season six of The Simpsons. Lisa visits a fortune teller who is unconcerned when Lisa picks Death, but gasps in horror when the next card she draws is the Happy Squirrel. (When Lisa asks if the fuzzy rodent is a bad sign, the fortune teller demurs, saying that “the cards are vague and mysterious.”) Although it began as a cartoon joke, the Happy Squirrel card has made its way into over a dozen commercially available tarot decks.

So what would de Gébelin’s reaction be? The answer depends on whether tarot is a collection of timeless, mystical wisdom—or a flexible framework that has endured by changing with the times. Although tarot imagery employs supposedly universal archetypes, new decks are constantly being invented, and old decks altered. The art of tarot cards can never fully transcend its milieu. Which begs a second question: How do the cards’ art and design relate to the social changes, technological advances, and aesthetic sensibilities of their particular eras?

A Wealthy Family’s Trick-Taking Game

Despite their aura of mystery, medieval tarot cards were not used for divination, and were probably not created by ancient Egyptian magicians. The earliest surviving tarot decks—now preserved in various museum collections—are Italian, and were commissioned by wealthy patrons, the same way one might have hired an artist to paint a portrait or illuminated prayerbook.

The Visconti-Sforza Tarot is a collection of decks, none complete, commissioned by the Visconti and Sforza families from the workshop of Milanese court painter Bonifacio Bembo. Cards such as Death, who rides a horse and swings a giant scythe like a player in the world’s most high-stakes polo match, will seem familiar to contemporary enthusiasts. So will the Pope, who sits on a golden throne; and the Lovers, who hold hands beneath a string of heraldic flags. Rather than looking to these cards for mystic guidance, the Visconti and Sforza families would have used them to play a trick-taking card game similar to modern-day Bridge. (Although it’s unlikely—given the good condition of the decks—that they were ever handled with much frequency).

The cards each have intricately tooled gold backgrounds that glow like the luxury items that they were. Bembo is believed to have included portraits of the families in many of the cards, as well as adding the Visconti family motto here and there for good measure. Akin to the work of Fra Angelico and other early-Renaissance artists, the cards are opulent but pictorially flat, although the bodies appear in naturalistic perspective and their clothing billows around them, suggesting volume and form.

The 18th-Century Conver Classic

  • Nicolas Conver, Tarot card from Tarot de Marseille, ca. 1760. Via Wikimedia Commons.

Produced in 1760, French engraver Nicolas Conver’s deck of delicate woodcuts, the Tarot de Marseille, is the template on which many contemporary decks are based. Like the Visconti-Sforza Tarot, the deck’s design likely originated in 15th-century Italy before traveling north to France. It’s a favorite of many tarot enthusiasts, most notably the cult film director Alejandro Jodorowsky, who designed his own deck based on the style. While the Conver deck wasn’t the first to be called the Tarot de Marseille, it’s highly prized by collectors for its delicate color palette of sky blues and minty greens. The graphic black outlines and blunt shading of the prints give the cards a simple and rough-hewn appearance, which adds to the ambience of ancient wisdom. The popularity of the tarot grew due to advances in printing technology and via the writings of 19th-century French occultists such as Éliphas Lévi and Etteilla, which popularized the use of tarot as a method of fortune-telling and assigned additional divinatory meaning to the cards.

The New Mystics

  • Pamela Colman Smith, Queen of Cups, c. 1937. Courtesy of the Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library at Yale University.

The Rider-Waite Smith deck, which debuted in 1909, remains the most recognizable and popular today. Designed by artist Pamela Colman Smith under the direction of the mystic A.E. Waite, it was the first to be mass-produced in English, and was intended for divination rather than gameplay. Smith and Waite were both active members of the Order of the Golden Dawn, a secretive organization devoted to the exploration of the paranormal and occult (allegedly Bram Stoker, Aleister Crowley, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle were also members).

In addition to Smith’s occult bonafides, she was also an accomplished artist, championed by Alfred Stieglitz, who collected her work and showed it at his gallery. Smith created fully-realized illustrations of all 78 cards that made the deck a treasure-trove for cartomancers, who now had a much richer store of images to work with. (Previously, only the 22 Major Arcana cards such as the Fool, the Magician, and the Lovers had been elaborately illustrated—traditionally, the Minor Arcana cards, which are roughly analogous to the suits in a deck of modern playing cards, were not.) The Major Arcana were based on the Tarot de Marseille drawings, but rendered in an illustrative Art Nouveau style rich with patterns. Even the Fool looks debonaire; he carelessly approaches the cliff, a feather in his cap and a blooming rose in his elegant fingers, wearing a floral tunic that looks straight out of William Morris’s workshop.

An Occultist’s Pure Geometry

  • Frida Harris, tarot card from The Thoth deck. Photo by @cugeltje, via Instagram.

The Thoth deck, named for the Ibis-faced Egyptian god more commonly known as Horus, was painted by the artist Frieda Harris based on direction from the infamous occultist-about-town Aleister Crowley. Completed in the early 1940s, but not widely available until 1969, it features Art Decoborders resembling the pattern of a butterfly wing.

The deck is an aesthetic departure from the Rider-Waite’s homey Arts and Crafts aesthetic. Shaped by Harris’s interest in pure geometry, the cards are reminiscent of the work of Swedish painter Hilma af Klint (a visionary artist who shared Harris’s interest in spiritualism and the writings of Austrian philosopher Rudolf Steiner, both popular subjects of study among the middle and upper classes in the early 20th century). Harris’s shaded orbs and compass-inscribed curves that fill the background of each card bear more than a passing resemblance to Klint’s highly-saturated geometries. Klint, considered by some to be Europe’s first abstract painter, believed that her luminous compositions were the created under the influence of spirits. (The same could easily be said of Harris because she was taking direction from Crowley, who was believed to be a medium, able to channel ancient and magical forces.)

It’s no coincidence that Klint’s paintings and Harris’s Thoth illustrations were shown in the same pavilion at the 2013 Venice Biennale, which was intended to amplify voices that had previously been excluded and “cover 100 years of dreams and visions,” according to curator Massimiliano Gioni.

Sex & Self-Help, ’70s Style

  • Bill Greer and Lloyd Morgan, card from Morgan-Greer Tarot, 1979.

Created by the artist Bill Greer under the direction of Lloyd Morgan, the Morgan-Greer deck is, like the 1970s themselves, both opulent and optimistic. The Magician sports a mustache that would make Tom Selleck blush, and the naked and embracing Lovers would fit right in with the hirsute and curvaceous illustrations in the original 1972 edition of The Joy of Sex.

The ‘70s enthusiasm for all things New Age created a renewed interest in tarot as a tool for self-discovery, and the Morgan Greer deck was there to greet it. The cards’ colors are lush and the lines are fluid. Greer chose to crop his figures tightly and removed the borders, allowing the illustrations to extend to the edges. The effect is fresh and personal. Formally, the Morgan-Greer illustrations have more in common with Jefferson Starship’s Spitfire (1976) album cover than with contemporary painting of the same period—the pendulum had swung away from figuration and would take a few years longer to swing back—but it’s possible to find a resonance between this deck’s art and a work like Judy Chicago’s Dinner Party (1979), with its powerful goddess and blooming flowers. Greer’s strong women and frank sexuality make the deck very much of its time.

which is a nice sensuous energy. You will feel good about being in your body, the earth plane and enjoying reveling in the 5 senses, the palpable beauty.
 
Moon inconjuncts JUPITER in Libra
You must move some mountains to get social justice. Get off your couch and use that stubbornness wisely.
 
Moon sextiles Chiron
Lending an easy aspect to feel the wounds, pain, and vulnerability that we carry in our bodies. If we listen to the bodies wisdom it will reveal what we should and shouldn’t be doing.
 
Moon inconjuncts SATURN in SAGITTARIUS
The body and the spirit are going in two different directions. The spirit wants to soar off into new adventures. The practical emotional mood is kinda lazy. It takes effort and practical consistency to follow those dreams.
 
INSPIRATIONAL DAILY CARD
Queen of Cups Tarot Tara Greene
“Queen of CUPS” by Noreen Mungo
 
The Queen of Cups is the most feminine card in the deck. Like the I Ching Hexagram # 2 The Receptive. This is a card of the utmost sensitivity and flow. It is all water, the water of water.
It is related to the sign of Cancer and the 4th house. The card of the day says. Be receptive, be open, listen to your intuition and your subtle feelings. You don’t have to do anything, wait. Feel.
This card depicts the WOMB itself, where we all originated. Woman as womb, as shelter, as home, as safe place, space. It is a card of retreat. It represents emotional safety and security.
Our need for it, and our ability to be it. 
Listen to the ocean’s roar, and the tide’s pulling in and out. The card is related to the moon. We could be in a pregnant state. Listen, be aware. REFLECT. 
REFLECT. 
I have been feeling the symbols whisper to me the last few days. Have you heard them too? I can feel the mystic calling. Venus Retrograde too.

Embrace the soul, romance the body

This is a Friday the 13th to break the superstitious mold. It’s a very good positive non-spooky Friday the 13th for a number of reasons. No fearing black cats crossing your path.
It’s a LEO Moon which means passionate, fiery, heart-felt, proud and strong-willed, nobody’s gonna rain on my parade.. 
The LEO Moon is active squaring Mercury, inconjuncting Pluto, trining URANUS squaring the SUN and inconjuncting Chiron in Pisces. All of which means a headstrong miscommunications, divided loyalties, secret cabals, escaping to a higher consciousness for some breathing space, battling with superiors and non wanting to admit how much it hurts.  
The BIG GEM that revitalizes this day is the  Venus in #Taurus TRINES PLUTO in CAPRICORN @ 17+ degrees.
It’s all about sensual beauty, roses, the most feminine of all symbols enhances the Soul’s depths of desire in the world.
Give yourself permission to be very sensuous, smell the roses, eat the roses, make love with roses, that will satisfy the Goddess of Love.
Roses, Venus, Tara Greene psychic
And as for Pluto, Lord of the soul and the Unconscious, allow your body and soul to be one. Embracing your shadow is a safe way, in a way of relationship with the anima, Venus and feed your soul beauty and love as those as the greatest riches.
Let’s examine the symbols for 18 degrees Taurus for VENUS by John Sandbach  I will adapt them. 

Taurus 18. Gently, a man caresses a thorn tree. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Receptive

You have a delicacy of approach to life that helps you to deal with difficult and/or sensitive situations. This is a real gift. You are a peacemaker who understands instinctively the innate needs of people and situations. Your energy can encourage people to let down their defenses so that they are able to share more fully.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A woman with hundreds of breasts.”

Diana/Artemis of Ephesus, Tara Greene
This is the symbol of Diana of Ephesus.

It would seem that there is an extreme divergence between this Chandra symbol and its accompanying Omega Symbol, but the fact is that breasts are for nurturing, and thorns are for defense, and the sign Cancer is about both nurturing and defense.

This degree has faith in the abundance of the universe, and knows that all needs can and will be met as soon as the belief in the illusion of poverty and lack are let go of. And even when the self chooses to experience lack, it is to induce itself to find what is needed within, and hence a means of coming to a realization of personal power and completeness.

Azoth Symbol: Space aliens inviting some humans to come and see their world. Real Venusians.

Oracle

It might be that none of the thorns on this tree will ever hurt anything. Molecules of air and photons of light enjoy playing around the sharp tips, and the points seem to create a coolness and alertness in the air, and at dusk a faint glow.

A man has stopped to feel with his thumb and forefinger the shaft of a thorn. It’s smooth, and faintly red, but in the dusk mostly black. As he slides his fingers down the shaft of the thorn he feels, all over his body the tree caressing him back, with the same gentle smoothness.

The SYMBOL for PLUTO at 18 degrees Capricorn
Capricorn 18. A forgotten painting stored in a vault. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Receptive

What is the Vault? Where is it?

( Spiritual Cleansing, Endings and Rebirth)

This degree is inherently patient and knows that it may take a long time before its gifts are appreciated. Its also aware that when people are exposed to something again and again over a long period they can begin to take that thing for granted, and so sometimes its best to hold back what one has to offer until the time is right to bring it forth.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A black leopard with green eyes.”

black panther/leopard Tara Greene, animal spirit
I have been seeing black leopards lately. They are one of my power animals. 

The painting is stored in the dark, the leopard is a creature of the dark. Green is the color of emeralds, the gem of Mercury, the planet of communication. The artist’s painting was painted to communicate something, but now it is not doing that – it dwells in the dark, the Underworld, Hades. Until it can communicate once again – open its eyes to the light, and reaffirm its power, which is like that of the leopard’s.

Sometimes when something is hidden it is a good thing – later, when it is re-revealed we may see it with fresh eyes. This degree knows the power of waiting for the right time to act, the right time to bring forth its ideas. It uses the power of darkness and silence to enhance what is eventually and finally communicated.

Pleiadian Symbol: A glorious dragon of many colors embroidered onto a flag.

Seed degree: 4 Scorpio 4. An albino woman unaffected by the rays of the sun. (Omega Symbol). When we cease to allow the obvious to overpower our consciousness we become aware of hidden treasures everywhere.

A loud roar as a tornado approaches. (Chandra Symbol). The intensity and power of overpowering thought forms give rise to potent desires and a deep, burning desire to communicate and connect.

Fulfillment degree: Pisces 24.An empty perfume bottle, the scent completely gone. (Omega Symbol). What has been lost is come to be seen as something that may be translated into the present via the imagination, or completely let go of to make way for whatever new is to come.

Venus will Trine the North Node exactly on May 15 @ 19+ degrees of TAURUS/VIRGO creating a GRAND EARTH TRINE with PLUTO all weekend.
This is very very rich, soulful, powerful aspect. If you do  have planets closely conjunct to these degrees  {15-21} this is like the pot of Gold at the end of the Rainbow. Realise you already have the gold.
MANTRA You are the manifestation of the soul, and of love. REPEAT

Saturn Neptune square,Visionary arts

The upcoming MAJOR ASPECT of 2016 is the SATURN in SAGITTARIUS square to NEPTUNE in PISCES is exact on June 17th with Saturn still Retrograde @ 12+ degrees. Neptune is the Source of all creation and Saturn births spirit into form.  Both of these planets have many aspects to each of them. I will drip feed you tidbits about the various meanings and nuances of these two planets of hard-core reality and the dreamtime. 

Neptune in Pisces rules the artist, the spiritual guide, the creative energy which all artists channel, fine artists, musicians, or writers. If the creative person thinks it is their ego who is creating, then they are not truly connected to the source.  An artist who becomes Neptune’s channel, his hollow reed, or painting tool, is a visionary. These are the ones who taps into the collective dreamtime unconscious of their times and whose vision is always ahead of their times.

visionary arts Napoleon Brousseau Toronto

The aptly titled Neptunian ” Memory Fog ” Oil on Canvas, 36 x 32 in., April 27th, 2015

Saturn is the mature artists, the one who is not the flash in the pan, brash young man but the mature artist who has been seasoned from doing his daily work for many, many years and who hasn’t given up their vision or dream and who has wisdom gained from experience.

For your Saturn square Neptune viewing pleasure here is a sampling of some of Napoleon { yes it’s his real name} Brousseau’s recent series of paintings.

Sensual Moon, romantic Sunday

The Moon enters Taurus Jan 16-19.

Taurus Moon, Tara Greene astrology

This is the most sensual time of the month. This is the time to slow down and smell the roses, and Do PAMPER yourself and your beloveds. Awaken your senses with aromatherapy oils and incense. Give and receive massages or simply be more touchy in the positive sense. Taurus the Bull is an ancient constellation. In Hinduism Shiva rides a sacred white Bull called Nandi. 

The Symbol of Taurus is the Major Arcana of The POPE #5 of Hierophant or High Priest 

The Hierophant, the POPE, Tara Greene

Taurus, the 2nd sign  is ruled by planet Venus, so all things of beauty, art, romance, music, flowers, fashion, dance, jewellery, pottery especially, landscaping, and money are all attributes of Taurus. 

The Mythological Minotaur was a man with a bull ‘s head and tail { or a man’s head and bull body like a Centaur. The Minotaur, was locked inside a  labyrinth in Knossos Crete to contain him. His original name in Creten, was Asterion, which means the stars. So the name relates to the constellation of Taurus the Bull. 

Taurus relates to our very earthy animal side, which we must honor but also contain. Many of us are so disconnected from our bodies so much these days from sitting in front of computers ,texting and in our heads all day that we need to learn to listen to and use  all of our 6 senses. It takes practice and attention.

It’s a strongly bullish Sunday. Yes I know the stock markets wish it was bullish too.

Moon opposes Mars in Scorpio; stubborness comes to a head. 

Bull Moon sextiles Neptune- easy to be romantic

 and is inconjunct to Saturn in the evening- limitations on travelling. 

DO: Take a walk in nature, meditate on your sensual beauty and enjoy cooking, creating, dancing or singing. Taurus rules the throat. Have a slow day, where you eat, walk, and do things ploddingly. 

If you aren’t usually a stubborn person practice being so. 

Venus Taurus’ ruler squares Jupiter in Virgo a harmonious earth element @ 9:10 pm PST/ Jan 18 @ 12;10 am EST.

TAURUS RITUAL

Work with your root chakra and your throat chakras. Both of these are tied to power. Create an alter with flowers, sweets, earth, crystals, incense.

Taurus metal is COPPER sacred to Venus, use pennies to offer to Venus. 

Crystals: emerald, Rose quartz, carnelian, selenite, cuprite, red jasper, Turquoise. 

Put on some sensual belly dancing music or whatever turns you on and do a dance for Venus and Taurus energy. 

There are three earth trines and one water trine on  Monday.

EL PAMPERO- Gato Barbieri 1971  

 

Non-duality. Moon in Gemini, inspiration

I didn’t know what to write about today. I was at a Corporate Event yesterday in Niagara Falls Canada. The company was one I had read at a year ago. I was delivering tea leaf readings this year and had read Tarot cards last year.  A guest at the event came up to me and sat down and she said “Oh I am so happy to see you again.  I have to tell you that  you saved my life. Last year you read the cards for me and in the reading you told me to check out a problem in my breast.” She said she went to the doctor to check on her health because I had channelled this information  and even though she had no symptoms. Turns out the doctor found a tiny lump and they did a biopsy which was pre-cancerous and the doctor said it was good that they’d found this so soon. She is watching this every six months she gets her breast checked up. I felt so happy to hear this. It made me know that I am truly walking my soul’s path. I don’t always speak of health issues to clients especially at corporate events but she must have asked this. And one way or another trusting my higher self enabled me to say what I felt and saw and help her and I am so grateful for that. I do still have to state that my readings are for entertainment only and it is up to the client to do with it what they want. 

The Moon is in Gemini and which at its core is the mind, the apparent duality that we perceive.  I will briefly spec out the planets but really watch this Video below. 

Moon opposes Saturn in Sagittarius sign of truth, justice and inspiration.

Moon and Sun are incompatible today, Scorpio Sun and Gemini’s lite energy do not connect.

Go deeper, this is the time of the year of Death. 

Moon squares Neptune in Pisces

Dream a little, dream both sides, see from a new perspective. 

Moon is also inconjunct to Pluto in Capricorn

You can talk all you want but corporate 1% ain’t paying any attention.

Oracles, divination, mystic insights by Tara Greene

The energy felt so intense today. SATURN is now at the CRITICAL last 29th degree of SCORPIO since September 1st.

The 29th degree, read as the 30th infers the end the Omega and the beginning the Alpha. 

Omega Symbol for Scorpio 30. Former reflections appearing on a mirror.  Transforming/Inspired.

Angel degree: HAHEUIAH (ha-HOO-ee-YAH) Overcoming Jealousy, Protection

Everything that has ever been, and will be, IS. Exists in the ETERNAL INFINITE NOW. Hence the title of this blog, Infinity now. The past is still happening, still accessible and there is no end to parallel universes. 

Napoleon Brousseau Charcoal drawings

Charcoal drawing, Napoleon Brousseau 

This degree is of pure creativity that draws on ANY AND ALL SOURCES AS MATERIAL “PRIMA MATERIA” for what it creates.  It symbolizes extreme creativity perspective and receptivity and whatever it takes in is continually reconfigured into new patterns from which new experiences and understanding can be drawn. 

WOW I LOVE THIS ALREADY! Hallelujah.

I woke up this morning realizing all the answers, all the names of God/dess are all here already, I already know them. I already have the keys. We all do.

If only we could be in this state of NIRVANA, where all is pure potential like a child, the FOOL, in the now. GOD/DESS is  totally creative Artist . Like Don Miguel Ruiz, of the Four Agreements talks about in his Toltec wisdom that everyone in his Indigenous shamanic culture everyone is referred to as an artist because All that Is, is an artist. The Universe is the canvas. 

Pleiadian Symbol: A man in a death’s head mask sitting quietly in a dark tree. by John Sandbach.

Azoth Symbol: An alchemist carefully weighing the ingredients of a formula then casually throwing in other ones.

The aurora borealis. (Chandra Symbol). To have seen the wonders of the spiritual heights frees us from any fears of what may seem ominous or threatening in the moment.

There may be huge AURORA BOREALIS Sept 4th due to large Coronal Mass Ejections that will be visible as far south as Arizona?

A perfect black cube sits alone in the desert. (Chandra symbol). Like MECCA.  A complete surrender to the processes of change and transformation will make us deeply aware of our limitations and self-imposed isolation, which can be, ultimately, a good thing if we allow this realization to reconnect us with the light…..

**********************************************************************************************************

I sort of pulled out my lower back, its sore.  Then had a client come who described having the same lower back pain in the evening who has been diagnosed with arthritis although she is in her early 30’s.  It happens. 

I want to work on Donald Trump’s astrology chart and Wayne Dyer’s who had such a spiritual death, passing away in his sleep.

Also thinking about Syria and the horrible crisis there created by the U.S. and Russia and Assad, using the people as pawns in their war games. These refugees seeking asylum will also destabilize Europe and other countries who take them in, this is a complex problem and we want to be egalitarian and humanitarian but there are other hidden factors going on behind the scenes here. Secularism is the only way to have any stability in the world. We must stop all organized religious based ideologies, after all they are merely political tools for power. As much as I like Pope Francis, very much, the Vatican is a very corrupt place, and the climate change business also smacks of New World Order stuff. Yet the climate is a mess, too much pollution, resources being gobbled up, raping the earth. Are we merely in a natural cycle? Or a man-made cycle? The Plutocrats have so much money, they  can build machines to create earthquakes, change weather patterns and such for their own greedy benefit and to wipe out mass populations. 

 Interesting that the Pope will be visiting America during the Total Lunar Eclipse although he is scheduled to fly out hours before the eclipse happens.

Inspirational Card of the Day 

Flower of Life Mandala crop circle July 28 2003 Tara Greene

#30 Banbury Castle Flower of Life crop circle  

Image on Card #30 of the Crop circle Oracle by Joseph- Mark Cohen, a friend and colleague. 

The image shows a FLOWER OF LIFE design with a zodiac of petals in the middle. The Flower of Life was discovered by Drunvalo Melchizedek from 20 years of research as the template for creating all life in the Universe.

There is both a double spiral vortex and moments of still points as the circles dance amongst each other. 

Oracle: “Go ahead, spin little dervishes until you find yours still point within. “

Wow, profound on so many levels. The whirling dervishes are the order that Rumi founded in Anatolia, now Turkey in the 13th Century.

PANDORAMA by Nina Paley 

Reality check, Saturn Square Neptune 2015-2016

I am getting a deja vu writing this. I believe I have had a dream or several dreams about writing this. 

The thought that my yesterday title the end is near was too negative seems to have fit right in with the World Markets big slide “correcting itself.” No, sorry  the markets bubbles is bursting. Be forewarned. 

We are in new energies now from the planets as Jupiter is already in Virgo the sign of the harvest. You know the saying ” You reap what you sow.” And that is planet Saturn’s motto, the Lord of karma.

Jupiter is considered to be “DETRIMENTAL” while in Virgo as the planet is opposite his original ruling Feminine sign Pisces. All planets are considered in detriment when opposite their ruling signs, They are disempowered and weakened. So the big rewards are less big, and adventurous as befits humble, on budget, practical grounded  realistic Virgo. 

Saturn will also enter Sagittarius September 17

Which totally changes the reality principle. Saturn in Sagittarius is much more honest, forthright, ethical than we have seen while he has travelled through secretive, power-hungry Scorpio since October 5, 2012. 

Saturn was last in Sagittarius 

November 16 1985 – February 13, 1988 and  June 9 1988 – November 11, 1988. an auspicious numerology date. 

This generation is getting ready to experience its first Saturn Return now. A time of testing maturity and taking responsibility in one’s life. 

January 12 1956- May 13 1956 and October 10 1956-January 5 1959. 

This generation is going to experience its 2nd Saturn return. A time of stepping into being an elder, wiser, free from children responsibilities and giving back to the younger generations. 

December 2, 1926 -March 15,1929  and May 4, 1929 – November 29 1929. – an auspicious numerology date.  Note that this was just before and after the Great Stock Market Crash in 1929.

This generation is getting ready to experience its 3rd Saturn return. A time to take stock of your life as you prepare to detach from worldly possessions. A time of life review, slowing down. 

Jupiter rules both Sagittarius and Pisces and this position in another MUTABLE Sign, like Sag. Pisces. Virgo and Gemini helps to know there will be flexibility.  More yogic energy, less hard angles to things. 

JUPITER and Neptune opposition  September 16 @ 7+ degrees

and if you think the markets fell today just wait till around this date. Neptune rules debt, illusion, fantasy, addictions, oil. Yes the price of oil has already plummeted to lows in the 1980’s.  Virgo is the sign of accountability, order, rationing, and this is where one aspect of the reality principle start to hit. It will continue. 

MAJOR LONG TERM ASPECTS

SATURN and NEPTUNE square off each other three times. 

  1. November 26 2015 @ 7 degrees  which is the U.S. Thanksgiving day, conjunct to Fixed Star Antares, rival of Mars one of the four main archangel stars. 

 2. June 17, 2016 @ 12 degrees Sagittarius/Pisces with Neptune Retro.

3. September 10 2016 @ 10 degrees Sagittarius/Pisces with Neptune Retro. 

I would check out where these degrees fall in your natal chart because it is where the shit Saturn/Reality hits the Fan, Neptune in Pisces. The BIG Bubble bursts. Many people will run to hide their heads in the sand, in denial. Many will get high and drop out on drugs, pot, Prescription meds, video games, porn, alcohol,or your drug of choice; Kale smoothies, yoga, veganism, shopping, hipsterism, gurus, romantic delusions. The dream is over. 

These are major long-term cycles. The effects of both these planets will burst many bubbles and usher in a cleansing around belief systems, faith, higher education, and laws. 

Talk about a reality check.  Dues will have to be paid. 

Saturn in Sagittarius rules higher education, justice, travelling, foreigners, religion, travelling. 

There will be many changes in immigration law as Saturn restricts travel. Saturn in Sagittarius is  the truth will set you free. Who’s truth? Not dogma, not religious beliefs. Atheism will gain a huge following. Millions are tired of the way religion is used to dominate and control the masses. 

These aspects also mean conspiracy theories which were once considered crazy may be taken more seriously. History will be re-written. Outsiders become respected.  

Elders will be giving more freedom and integrated into the culture. Death will be much more of an adventure and more of a spiritual journey than feared and ostracized out of sight. 

There will be major protests against corruption in the justice system. Government lobbyists will be stopped from controlling the entire system.   

While Jupiter is in Virgo the largest spiritual movement will be PAGANISM/EARTHING..

Back to the land, another Hippie return. NOTE that URANUS And PLUTO were both in VIRGO when the 60’s revolution was started by these two planets. Jupiter will touch these degrees again.   practical, grounded religion, practical philosophy, hands on , DIY, simpler, slower, living. Worshipping the earth, the land, the food, REAL FOOD, no GMO,plastic fast food. Simple pleasures. 

HEALTH and NATURAL HERBAL HEALING, super foods for cancer cures, eating your medicine. Exotic medicines – Chinese, Ayurvedic, Amazon jungle cures become widely accepted. 

Your life’s work must be of service to others, not about career, status or big bucks first. Being grounded, HUMBLE,-forget it Kanye and Donald.  There will be a surge in literary groups and circles of helping hands. Health is number one. GMO’s will be banned.

A pioneering lifestyle, downsizing. People will realize that living on credit is not real. There may be inflation as a counterpoint. SAVING is the New Black!  Saving? what’s that to most of the younger generation. 

Neptune in PISCES is faith, intuition, psychic energy, trusting what one knows within oneself to be authentically true. Oneness, dreaming. The truth will out about organized religions, promising “Heaven” bible belters,  ISIL, Tea party, the fraud yogis, the religious zealots from all religions, swindling the innocent for billions of tax-free dollars, will be OVER. The masses will see the illusion of the rhetoric.

The term the waking dream means that this life,what we think of as  reality { Saturn} is actually an illusion { Neptune in Pisces}.  There is a famous Chinese story about Chuang Tzu dreaming that he was a butterfly, flying about enjoying itself. Was the butterfly dreaming  it was Chuang Chou? We want to wake up from the dream where some never actually wake up their entire lives. Wake up to your eternal self dreaming it is experiencing the 3-D dimension. 

Neptune in Pisces

is Hollywood and the cultural illusions, these motifs will also change. The tools are in the hands of the people. Everyone is an artist, a creator. Painting, salons, poetry, singing, sound healing, spiritual healing, faith healing,will become commonplace.  There will be a more spiritual and educational nature to entertainment not just empty fluff.

Death of the selfie.

Neptune in Pisces is the “Other-y”  or the “USie”, or  the “Weie.”  People will begin to gather again in real life. People will get Disillusioned  with the virtual reality. 

These planetary combination also spell

More traditional art forms, Saturn likes old-fashioned hands on. Artists who can actually draw, paint, and use traditional mediums will become popular.Educational reforms bring back the arts as a superior way of learning. 

The illusions of the quick- fix will be over on all levels. This also includes  psychics, spell casters and the like who promise to magically change your karma.

You get the picture.
