Toronto Mayor Rob Ford,crack head,eh? Astrology from Tara Greene

Well Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is personally destroying my home town city’s reputation in the world. There is no class in “world class city”  Toronto’s dreams on the world’s stage now. I have been disgusted by Mr Ford since he was elected in October 2010. How?  By  outlying Conservative suburbanite’s as a backlash to the downtown core of multicultural Liberal Toronto urbanites.

You may not know it but Toronto’s nickname is HOGTOWN and I find Mr. Ford’s behavior to embody that moniker totally. He says misogynist and racist things on camera.

THE GREAT WHITE NORTH has taken on a whole new significance.

Great white North Toronto Tara Greene

SCTV’s Bob and Doug Mackenzie  Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas 1980

The evolution of Hosers from 20th century to snow blowers in the 21st.

Mr. Ford allegedly caught on video with a crack pipe in his hands. Somali drug dealers showed it to two Toronto newspaper reporters and John cook from Gawker on an iphone. Their are asking for $200,000 to hand it over and Gawker, a U.S. company has a  fundraising campaign to get the sum together.- see link below

The Somali drug dealers for some reason aren’t being questioned or arrested for selling illegal drugs and were interviewed saying they want the money so they can leave Toronto for the “promised lands” of Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s tax-free oil sands of Alberta and start a clean new life allegedly, or sell more crack to a rich and bored audience.

One of Mr. Ford’s former “buddies” another Somali fellow was shot dead in a gangland shoot out in Toronto in March.  Mr. Ford has become a household name for all the wrong reasons.

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford crack scandal

Jon Stewart spent 6 minutes of TV time totally lambasting the former football coach.

Jimmy Kimmel also produced a staged Interview with an actor posing as the Toronto Mayor

Jay Leno also mentioned it and said its’ because “there’s not a lot to do in Toronto.”

I beg to differ- Toronto is Heaven according to Michael Moore, and is the only city with 130 different ethnic groups living in relative peace in a GTA of  over 6,000,000 people,  it’s now the 4th largest city in North America.

This is not the first time Ford has been in trouble, he’s already fought many charges of being drunk, rerouting public transit for his football team, having his photo taken with a Neo Nazi, caught calling Asians “orientals” and saying racist comments in public. Walking right into a camera.  Talking on his cell phone and driving which is illegal.

I predicted Rob Ford’s win in October 24 2010 and briefly went over his astrology chart you can read that here http://www.taratarot.com/id177.html

Here’s a surrealist image of Rob Ford’s defense, after French artist Rene Magritte.

For Americans and others who don’t speak French, Canada’s “other ” official language.

It says  “This is not a crack pipe.”

Lets look at Bob’s current astrology transits

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford Astrology Tara Greene

I’ve intuitively Rectified Rob Ford’s chart as there  is no known birth time.

He looks very Taurus like to me, so I’ve put that sign as his Ascendent and guess what? Planet NEPTUNE planet of addicts, snake oil salesmen, deluded, secretive, glamour seeking individuals have this aspect and it is sitting in his 7th house of “others.” The recent Solar Eclipse at 19 degrees Taurus would have fallen across his Ascendant /Descendent axis, the horizon line.

Transiting Jupiter in Gemini is nearing a 90 degree square to his North and South nodes in PISCES/Virgo. Jupiter rules the HIGHER law- no pun intended. I mean Sacred Law, the true justice not false corrupt justice. This is a karmic face the law for your past injustices. Seems perfect timing to me.

Jupiter is also squaring his Natal PLUTO JUPITER URANUS conjunction in Virgo.  That powerful Trinity spells out a power crazed big risk taker, who thinks he can do whatever he wants, is above the law, is so full of himself, conceited, Psychopathic.

Rob is also having his SATURN opposition which is also a get caught in your tracks holding the bag kind of aspect. Happens every 14 years or so.

Rob has a very difficult aspect at his birth, Mercury planet of thinking in GEMINI,Retrograde,which it rules, so its  indecisive, immature, irresponsible, usually labelled as learning disabled, is opposite  Mars also  RETROGRADE in Sagittarius which makes the usual truth teller a man who trips on his own words. Retrograde Mars in Sagittarius means abuse of the Law. This is a karmic aspect, his thinking and actions aren’t congruous. This man is not conscious and therefore  very dangerous.

The Lunar Eclipse on May 24 is opposite  his Mercury in Gemini and in square to his Natal Chiron, the wounded healer.  His double talking is as the Canadian comedian Russel Peters says “Someone’s gonna get a hurtin’.”

NEPTUNE PLANET OF ADDICTIONS delusion, illusions, glamour, secrets, is SQUARING-HARD Rob’s Sun. Neptune in his  natural 11th house of wishes hopes and dreams has turned in his delusions of grandeur from a Pipe DREAM into a PIPE NIGHTMARE.

I think I will rename him SPONGE BOB Square Crack.

He is turning only 44 in a few days, A Master number, 4  being the number  of Power in the Tarot. THE KING or Emperor. The opposite side of the King is THE FOOL. He is making a huge fool of himself and this city.

Oh well, so it goes as Kurt Vonnegut used to say in Slaughterhouse Five.

Happy Mother’s day, Inspirational Card of the Day,Love your Mother

May 12 

has a very happy upbeat Moon Jupiter conjunction in Gemini @ 21 degrees Taurus 

An air and earth combo. Get mom something light but sensual, a communication tool, a new learning experience.

Inspirational Card of the Day

comes from what else?

the MOTHERPEACE TAROT  by Vicki Noble and artist Karen Vogel.

The first really different in shape and Feminist centric Tarot card deck, printed in 1983. It’s been hugely successful, over 200,000 copies sold. 

Lovers Tarot Tara Greene

MOTHER PEACE TAROT CARD DECK

The Lovers Trump # 6 GEMINI

So synchronous that the LOVERS showed up on Mother’s day. So sweet. I love it.

It is associated with the Sign of  GEMINI- duality in one.

To love, one must have an equal and opposite mirror, polarity, Yin/yang.

LOVE IS ALL. Love is all we need. Love, Love, Love.

We are in a Universal LOVERS  year as 2013 reduces to #6 

MEANING

Drop all you old resentments,hurt  and old emotional baggage about what MOM didn’t do for you

and turn that into gratitude and joy.

MOM gave you LIFE, for you to make of it what you will. Thank her and love her for that alone.

She gave you a great gift and walked in the shadow of death to give birth to you.

Mom may not have been perfect, still she made sacrifices for you. Mom may be like Mother Mary to you, all loving giving and compassionate.

Mom is both human and the Archetype of the Universal Goddess of creation and love who constantly gives birth to everything in the universe. She is the closest you will ever get to another person. You are her. You were physically in her body from the time she was conceived in her mother’s body. You have every experience and emotion that she had inside your own cellular consciousness. Plus your own karmic story of why you chose her to be your mother.  Whewh, that’s a whole book in itself.

Love your mother and honor her today  and everyday.

Take some deep breaths and see your mother as the Goddess, as the perfect mother, see her real frailty, her own wounds and struggles, and love her imperfection the same way she loves yours. Know that whatever her love or perceived lack of, that she love you unconditionally.

Love our mother the EARTH as well.  Everyone is born of woman, your Mom is your, and everyone’s  very real, living experience of the Goddess.

Mary Cassatt artist

MOTHER AND CHILD REUNION by PAul Simon

Birth of the new male,Mercury in Scorpio Mars in Capricorn Astrologyn-TM Tara Greene

I just coined a new term, I believe. Correct me if I am wrong -Astrologyn- TM Feminine Based Astrology-

taking the stars back to their feminine roots, 

we live in the Mother’s Milk galaxy now -don’t we?

Mercury is Retrograde and will back into Feminine water Scorpio again on the New Moon TOTAL Scorpio Eclipse Nov. 13 PST/Nov 14 EST

A Total Scorpio Solar Eclipse is a guaranteed  soul transformer 

for the next 6 months to a year.  –see my previous article 

Retrograde Mercury takes us back to October to revisit the conversations communications & power struggles we did the first time 

so expect those old Scorpio, you know, power, control, obsessions,  sex ,messy revenge on the down side, issues to be back on the front/back burner 

It’s cryin’ time again and healing time 

as CHIRON goes DIRECT NOv 14 @ 4 degrees 49 minutes of PISCES

CHIRON went Retro back on JUNE 11 so @ 9 degrees 45 mins of PISCES

all those internal memory unconscious pain karmic bonds that have been simmering away in yours and the Collective’s 12th house, the Cosmic Consciousness house is ready NOW to be healed born, blissed out, totally rebirthed on the Scorpio Solar eclipse.

With a big karmic blessing from SATURN who is trining CHIRON.

this is huge folks,just open your minds your hearts and soul’s and let it happen.

SURRENDER like the Hanged Man in the Tarot

Napoleon Brousseau
Hanged Candy Man 2012

MARS ruler of SCORPIO is on the GALACTIC CENTRE

acting as spiritual guide and soul warrior 

the Warrior God is in the Great Mother’s cosmic Vagina now so I tuned into his energy. I actually am a channeler.

Mars/the male is being rebirthed going back into the cosmic void, Alcyone the Central Sun and beyond into the Black Rift itself, being reborned as 

 the NEW MALE, Blissful warrior who listens to the Great Mother as Sacred Source of All.

This is what the consciousness shift Dec 21 2012 is all about.

Men will be feeling whole, complete, ready to defend the mother, the Feminine within himself, to protect women when they need and to support and honor the Feminine, the EARTH and all Her children.

We have just seen the evidence of this in President Obama defeating the backwards caveman platform of the Republicans. 

Mars will enter Capricorn November 16 in the evening till Dec 25

Capricorn Goat fish

So a grounded, serious, responsible,sensible, patient time. But my sense is that Mars ruling Scorpio going into the Dark of the Year earth sign means earthquakes.

Capricorn is a FEMININE EARTH sign

the capitalist Plutocracy, modern-day materialist that we think of with Capricorn is not the traditional meaning. 

Original the symbol was the body of a  dolphin fish with the torso and head of a goat . The shows the Great Mother’s origins in this sign. The Goat horns are the Moons’ crescents. Capricorn was also associated with the sea. The Moon Goddess and the Sea are one, they symbolize the primal womb image, memory, smell of the ocean that we all carry in our cellular consciousness, in our blood. Capricorn is the physical beginning of all human lives in 3D. Ruled by Saturn.

Stella Maris, Mary, T’ai  Yuan, from very ancient China, The HOLY Woman,  Kwan Yin, to modern Buddhists, she is Triple Goddess in Celtic Mythology Danu,  Bridget.

Capricorn’s horns symbolized the Cornucopia, the horn of plenty.

So focus on abundance, on filling your horn with plenty. Trust that there is enough to go around, but also do the mature responsible hard-working structuring and work to ensure that it can be real. 

Mars will be sextiling Neptune November 17

So create the  physical groundwork for your dreams this night. Write them down, do a ritual, plight your troth to be the vision, to act the vision, to be the change.

Blessings TARA

Bram Stoker, Dracula author, V for Vampires,Venus in Libra

Well all day today Nov. 7 I though about writing about Venus in Libra..because Venus is in Libra now from October 28 – November 21

because I  was born with Venus in Libra so know very well how she operates

and I am thinking about ART because Venus in Libra rules artists! and I notice that my article on Artist Salvador Dali is always popular,

I also want to write about Frida Kahlo one of my favourite artists whose show is on now in Toronto at the Art Gallery of Ontario,

and my husband, artist Napoleon Brousseau is getting ready to have a new art show opening in a few days.

FIXED STAR REGULUS

I was also noting the Moon crossing Fixed Star Regulus NOW at ZERO degrees VIRGO

the Traditional Fixed Star of Royalty of KINGS and Queens left LEO after a 2,000 year stay and entered Virgo earlier this year in Western Tropical astrology for another 2,000 plus year stay! No small matter. A Fixed Star changing signs is HUGE!

which also very powerfully indicates to me the rise of the FEMININE as Virgo is a Feminine EARTH sign.

So our Leaders should be more DOWN to EARTH, practical, less Regal and above the crowd.

also note Prince William marrying a commoner who could one day be Queen.

Then I saw Bram Stoker, Dracula author being honored on Google search engine home page on the 165th Anniversary of his birth  today Nov. 8

Then I  decided to quickly check into the Vampire author’s astrology chart.

Yes yes I know all you Twilight fans are getting ready for the last and hopefully final installment of the modern take on Dracula/Vampires re-written by Stephanie Meyer.

Bram Stoker Dracula authorclick on chart to view larger

I used midnight birth time for Bram Stoker, more Vampire  like.

Bram was born in Dublin, an ancient city known for its many a famous Irish Bards like James Joyce of Ulysses fame. U2 as well.

I had  a U2 song suddenly start playing in my head earlier in the evening, You know how these things work don’t you?

Stoker born with the Sun at exactly 15 degrees of Scorpio where it is the strongest. He was  also born on a NEW MOON, a dark moon,a scary Moon. As a Scorpio, a double Scorpio- with Sun and Moon conjunct he would naturally be attracted to the SCORPIO Dark  Side with all things forbidden, taboo, sex, death, power, lust, transformation.

The Gothic horror novel of which he wrote a few was originally published in 1897.

I was wondering why I was off topic from my intention when I saw that Bram also has VENUS in LIBRA.LOL. Well You gotta trust the Universe.

Venus is at 5 degrees Libra. Stoker also has the North Node at 9 degrees Libra conjunct Lillith at 12 degree. Lillith was known as a succubus, night hag, a monster who drank men’s semen in nocturnal dreams, who was blamed by the Patriarchy for doing her own thing, for being independent, for thinking for herself, for basically disobeying G*d. Perhaps Lillith was Stoker’s original idea for Dracula?

With the Midnight hour birth time what degree is Ascending?

Zero degrees of Virgo, which I thought about earlier today..Hmmm

The midnight chart puts Stoker’s SCORPIO Sun Moon exactly at the Bottom, on the IC, the Midnight of the chart itself.

Uranus right now is exactly opposing Stoker’s birth Venus.

So perhaps a Uranian surprise honor or a tie in to modern Twilight publicity.

The first film version of Dracula to make a big impression was the 1922 German Expressionist Horror film classic Nosferatu: a Symphony of Horror directed by F.W. Murnau. Names had to be changed from Dracula as the right to the original novel could not be obtained.

Vampire Max Schreckthe original film VAMPIRE 1922

Played by Actor Max Schreck, pictured above from the film DRACULA there is also name destiny here. Something I firmly believe in.

The word Schreck is Yiddish, which is actually 15th Century German for FEAR or fright.

The name was also used as a title for the children’s book modernized as Shrek  published  in 1990 by William Steig  about a young  ogre who finds the ogre of his dreams when he leaves home to see the world. The book served as the basis for the popular Shrek film series over a decade after its publication.

I will get down to Art and venus in Libra next installment

Solar Flare alert-Black Hole Sun-Full Moon, 4th of JULY,Tara Greene Psychic Astrology

We are in a very high CME Coronal Mass Ejection period. Very high magnitude solar flares  July 2 and more expected almost X-class, m3.8 have been reported.

see http://www.spaceweather.com/ for up to the minute news

THE SUN is the heart,the Source of our solar system. If the Sun is showing sun spots which are visible to the naked eye, the Sun is  speaking to us VERY LOUDLY  in Solar Logos or solar flair pictograms.

FULL MOON July 3 @ 11:53 am PDT/ 2:53 pm EDT/ 6:53 pm GMT

and a very powerful FULL MOON at that. Ushering in the U.S. 4th of July BIRTHDAY CELEB.

The MOON is situated @ 12 degrees CAPRICORN, directly opposite is conjunct Fixed Star SIRIUS, and the U.S. SUN

the SIRIANS are a highly evolved spiritual group of entities who are overseeing humanities leap into higher dimensional frequencies.

Sirius was the Star of very bright magnitude which the Egyptians worshipped as OSIRUS.Sirius rising signalled the annual flooding of the Nile hence fertility and continued life.

PLUTO Retrograde is conjunct the MOON  making this a very SOULFUL deep, powerful and  intensely felt  full moon.

We are in the midst of the first Pluto Uranus squares which started June 24 XACT. These outer planets produce generational changing world events. ALways best to look into the past to check this out.

The last time the 2 planets squared off was in 1932-34 at 20-24 degrees Aries- Uranus to Pluto in Cancer. Note that Saturn is currently opposite to that Uranian placement and square to that PLuto placement, further highlighting the karmic intensity of what was shall be underscored now for deeper meaning. We are condemned to repeat the past if we don’t learn from our mistakes. That is KARMA plain and simple.

This time period saw the GREAT Depression, FDR’s New Deal, creation of FDIC,CCC and FCC.

The rise of dictators Hitler, Stalin and Mao- the great murderer of all time. Fascism is on the rise. Not just neo-nazis, or anti-Muslims, but the new NDAA law in the U.S. can mean anyone who mentions conspiracy theories or who speaks against the state, this is not CHINA, can be thrown in jail with out trial for up to 90 days. people could be disappearing soon. Hitlerian fascism is back. in Canada Stephen Harper has renamed Canada’s government in his own brand name! WTF!!!

ON a more positive note many important scientific discoveries were made in quantum mechanics and radio astronomy.

There could be a danger of Japan’s failed Nuclear power reactors being damaged through high tides on the this PLUTONIC full MOON.  Solar flares can also interfere with any computers. We are all very vulnerable with our dependence on new technology.

Just a few days ago Sun opposed Pluto with the Uranus Square and Mars entering Libra today will further amp it up.

This is all potential quite explosive.

The Sun OUR STAR, our LIGHT, our father, as progenitor, who art in Heaven, is speaking to us.

 The SOLAR LOGOS is just coming to me as I write this. It is something Stuart Wilde,a writer and spiritual teacher I have read, attended lectures and respect talks about, It comes from metaphysical visionary Rudolph Steiner. Stuart says the Solar Logos is the Returned Christ Light. This is a good thing.

People born during 32-34 who are now hitting 80 are going through enormous change and potential liberation. People who’s natal planets are being affected by these transits may be choosing to leave the planet.

I wrote this late last night. Was looking for something on the net and went to look at photos I took from almost one year ago  exactly at the MOCCA opening for This is Paradise in Toronto. I was looking at some great portraits, one was of an old friend of my husband and myself, artist Sybil Goldstein. I thought oh what a great photo of her we’ll have to go see her soon. She has this funky little country place at an old leftist Jewish Mother and babe’s camp callled Camp Nyveldt or new world, 

Artists Sybil Goldstein RIP photo by Tara Greene

Went to sleep. Woke up, went to FB only to find out that Sybil had passed away suddenly yesterday night! A big shock.

I send Sybil many blessings, she was a strong woman,a very talented artist, a devoted mother of one son.

We hardly know anything. For me to do my best psychic work I have to be in a state of not knowing, humility.

Life is always  unexpected. The sudden death of a friend punctuated with solar flares and on a Full Moon packs an even more powerful punch through our hearts. It is always a good day to die. One cannot live unless one confronts death and change.

then I found this  http://www.openhandweb.org/healthy_relationship_death

We hardly know anything. To be fully alive is to not know, allowing conscious awareness, and the Light in.

The URANUS PLUTO SQUARES and the SOLAR FLARES and you can rap it too. impacts each one of us with the fact that all we can do is love totally, live at 200%, be present, give, be conscious. Ask for forgiveness from our humanness.

Sybil painted the Cameron House Art Bar’s Queen West landmark hot spot’s ceiling wth cherubs. She was part of the Chromaliving collective and  a well known Toronto artist for 30 years.

I leave you with one of her paintings which seems to illustrate the Capricorn Full Moon.

With every death there is a rebirth.
