Bloody Monday, Sun opposite Pluto, Frida Kahlo

Monday bloody Monday. The Moon is in soft pastels, watery lagoons of creative, romantic, dream time  as the Pisces Moon trines Sun in Cancer, and tickles Pluto in a sweet sextile

I’m flowing along with the tide wherever my imagination takes me. I never knwo what I am going to write most days. I can’t stop  writing. Neptune is at the mid-point of my Sagittarius Sun and Moon. Do I write too much?    then…

WHAM BAM THANK YOU MA’AM the SUN and PLUTO face off in the morning  

The big corporate Plutocrats  are facing off with the Cancerian country,home, feeling-led Greeks.

reigniting the Cardinal Cross energy from 2014- 2015 at 14+ degrees Cancer this of course is a near hit to the U.S. Sun. You may feel a lurch in your stomach. 

After holidays may be a rude beginning in the world markets today what with Greece’s NO vote. 

Neptune, the oceanic ruler of Pisces is also in an easy sextile to Pluto and in a Grand Trine to the Cancerian and U.S, SUN.

Neptune rules DEBT, illusion, things that aren’t real, fantasy, escapism, spirituality, the SOURCE. 

Moon later conjuncts Chiron in Pisces because yes it will hurt. 

Moon ends the day in an awkward quincunx to Jupiter in Leo in PDT and next morning in EDT. 

there will be much ballyhoo and belly aching and big egos and heads rolling.

What to do: Ignore the fracas and ruckus and tune into your own Higher self, a good day to meditate and dream. Every Pisces Moon is a chance to step away from reality and the 3-D demands of work, and living in the material world, especially as the world will be fussing about the material things or lack of them. You stay centered and calm with the world raging around you. Be the symbol of the Chariot in the Tarot. Be creative as well, dance, paint, sing, chant Holy mantras. 

Happy Birthday to His Holiness the Dalai Lama turning 80 today born in Tibet, may he live long.  China overtook Tibet in the 1950’s and continues to smother and desecrate this sacred land and culture. 

Happy Birthday to one of my art heroine’s Frida Kahlo born July 6 1907 

Frida Kahlo birthday Tara Greene

The Love Embrace of the Universe 1949

Frida Kahlo the extraordinary artist had an extraordinary astrology chart too. 

Frida kahlo astrology Tara Greene

with her Sun conjunct Fixed Star Sirius and Neptune {and the U.S. Sun} at 13 degrees Cancer,  the planet of artists, spirituality, and addictions close by, it was natural that she would rise to fame.  Frida had her Moon at 29 degrees Taurus conjunct to ALGOL the Star considered to have the worst reputation and to bring evil. This is also conjunct to the Pleiades, the famed 7 weeping Sisters. With a  Pluto Venus conjunction in Gemini, Frida was a creature of opposites, dual-natured, bi-sexual,oozing charm, attracting wealth, beauty, strength, and she was an amazing communicator. Jupiter and the North Node conjunct in Cancer -she was  a huge soul, the Madre of the earth, who knew what her mission was. With an unusual Retrograde Mars and Uranus conjunct in Capricorn in the 5th house, Frida had enormous discipline, a hard work ethic, she was a fiercely independent woman who came to finish off her karma with men in her life and to change the traditional path for women. The 5th house is traditional the house of children, love affairs, and creative self-expression. She did that in spades, her bus accident- Mars/Uranus left her in pain her entire life with over 30 spinal operations and the inability to have children. Her artworks were her children and she treated her twice married husband Diego Rivera as her baby as shown in the painting. With Mercury in Leo  Frida was a charismatic, beautiful and powerful woman  and was a natural leader, strong-willed, big-hearted, dramatic, ruling like a Queen from her imagination {in the 12th house}. Saturn in Pisces made her a martyr, very creative, a loner, with great spiritual and imaginative depth.  Frida was a Goddess. Her career has eclipsed that of her husband. She is an inspiration to all who see her works. I swear I wrote an article where I deciphered Frida and Diego’s charts and I can’t find it anywhere, Weird.

Out of Bounds planets, hipster Astrology knowledge.

What are OUT OF BOUNDS PLANETS ?

As it sounds, if you were born with the Moon or other planets out-of-bounds; meaning they are 23 degrees 28 minutes North or South of the celestial equator,the Earths equator extended into space, then you are a loose cannon, unbounded, a free spirit, definitely different from most people, a genius or an outlaw. Astrologers have been researching this information and using it to help define personality characteristics more recently.  The Sun can never be out-of-bounds, explained below.

PEOPLE IN THE NEWS WITH O.O.B. PLANETS

The pilot ANDREAS LUBITZ who apparently  crashed GERMANWINGS FLIGHT 9525

Has a number of OOB planets; his MERCURY -planet of communications -independent thinker, and his URANUS- individualistic, rebel, independent, chaotic, freedom. His SUN is very close the  most Southerly declination at 23 degrees 22 minutes 55 seconds. A mere 6 minutes away from the boundary-walks the line.  I’ll wrote a bit about that later.

O.O B. explained 

The Sun travels annually over a wide band of the celestial equator which ranges from  23 degrees 28 minutes north to 23 degrees 28 minutes south.  This is called declination which is a form of latitude rather than longitude. The Sun touches the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn- the Solstice points and the Sun crosses the celestial equator twice a year at the Equinox points. This is what creates the seasons. The Sun can never go past these degrees unless there was a pole shift, but the Moon and some of the planets can travel out of boundaries, hence the term. 

The Moon will go O.O.B. most frequently and reaches a maximum of nearly 29 degrees when the North Node is at 0 degrees Aries every 18.6 years related to eclipse cycles of course.  

MOON out of bounds Astrology Tara Greene

INSPIRATIONAL CARD OF THE DAY

The MOON has peak years when it is out-of-bounds in the past. 1913, 1931-32, 1950, 1969, 1987-88, 2006 and upcoming in 2024-25. A lot of social upheavals happened during these years. 

Saturn and Neptune never travel out-of-bounds and Jupiter only occasionally by a tiny amount.  

Generally speaking, and this applies to all planets, those in northern declinations are more outwards bound in effect while southern declinations are inwards and have a more personal effect. Two planets situated at the same degree of declination, both in the north or both in the south, are said to be in parallel, a parallel having a force like a conjunction. These two planets may be in different zodiac signs though.

I have just discovered that my Natal MOON, Mercury and Uranus are OUT OF BOUNDS which instantly clicked for me a whole bunch of information about the why and how I function. I think it is vitally important. 

DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOUR O.O.B planets are? 

You can look this up using an astrology program such as Astro.com after you put up a chart- all this is free- where it says additional tables click that and the declinations for all the planets and asteroids or whatever you input are clearly shown.

MOON OOB peeps

Moon OOB peeps are likely to have very accurate intuitions, a deep-seated need for freedom, a strong level of self-understanding. It is easy for them to freely express their own individual feelings, they see and sense things deeply as if they had x-ray vision.

MERCURY OOB

Born with Mercury OOB you will never stop talking. They do have very important ideas and things to say. Its seems double Uranian like to me. Thinking and communicating out of the box.

VENUS OOB

Born with VENUS OOB makes one an over the rainbow romantic- Judy Garland had it.Clang Clang clang went the trolley.

This placement delivers a very originally creative artistic person, a genius. This aspect can also bring very strong likes and dislikes. Homosexuality can also be linked. Many people with OOB Venus’s have multiple marriages. Or they can be intentionally single. Huge age gaps between lovers is another signpost. 

OOB VENUS women artists. BJORK ! Nico of Velvet Underground, sexy singer Jospehine Baker, diva Maria Callas, Helen Reddy- I Am WOMAN singer.

Also composer Erik Satie, artist Robert Mapplethorpe, songwriter Noel Coward, Liberace , Jean Genet and poet Ezra Pound.

MARS OOB

This indicates deviants, criminals, outlaws, reckless, danger seekers, rebels.

OOB PLANET WATCH!

The next planet to travel O.O.B. is VENUS. Everything that is Venus related- RELATIONSHIPS, MONEY, Balance, art will go wonky and unpredictable.

VENUS will begin travelling O.O.B on April 18th at 8:53:04 am (EDT) to June 1st at 6:30:59 pm

MERCURY will be O.O.B. from May 3rd at 8:16:30 pm (EDT) to May 19th at 12:45:25 am

Mercury will also be O.O.B.  from November 27th at 8:59:09 pm (EST) to December 24th at 11:14:55 pm (EST)

MARS will be O.O.B.  June 6th at 7:35:14 pm (EDT) to July 16th at 10:10:46 pm- circle with RED.

FLY ME TO THE MOON- Julie London 

Water and fire, Pisces time, inspirational Card

Sun and Moon are in PISCES now. It’s the year of the Wood Sheep. GUNG HAI FAT CHOY!

I am not a Chinese Astrology expert so will leave that to those who are.

With Pisces energy we know and remember that we came from Source

and that we are in essence all ONE.

Under Pisces beams we draw close to spirits, we are tuned into highly psychic realms,

we know we are the dreamers of this dreamwe are soul dreamers,

we are ultra-sensitive psychic sponges to everyone’s emotional states.
Boundaries are necessary to stay protected yet open.

We dive deep into the Unconscious world of our imaginations and creativity.
We connect in our meditations more easily.
We feel our own oceanic depths where all life formed on this beautiful earth.

Pisces loves movies, film, photography. The ACADEMY AWARDS are always on during PISCES time. I’ll post my predictions shortly.

Pisces projects, fantasies, illusions, wears rose colored glasses. Be careful of the too good to be true deal.

Feb 19 It’s a very active lunar day.
The Dark Moon is about to square Saturn, there will be serious dreaming tonight.

Moon will conjunct NEPTUNE

– lucid dreaming high alert.

Moon make sextiles to Pluto

– easy to feel deeply connected and ensouled

MARS enters ARIES -NEW CYCLE in ACTION, men, war…

which I wrote about previously

WAR ZONE ALERT! Fiery intrusion amidst all the water for today.

and a Moon/Quincunx to Jupiter in LEO can be tricky,

you may be impounded by someone else’s  big ego drama,

and lastly Lunar  conjunction to Chiron.

All the wounds will be healed by connecting with Source energy, with the Light in the darkness.

INSPIRATIONAL CARD OF THE DAY  

THE LOVERS Trump #6 

Osho Zen Tarot Tara Greene

The cards are always in synch. The lovers = MASCULINE & FEMININE together.

The combination of the planets mirror this.

THE LOVERS is all about relationships yes. But it is also about loving  yourself totally without ego. 

It is about  going beyond duality. Seeing the beloved everywhere, in everything.

“The minute I heard my first love story,
I started looking for you, not knowing
how blind that was.
Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere.
They’re in each other all along.”- RUMI

Going with the Mars in Aries and the Pisces watery energy. Venus will enter Aries and this song popped into my head. It perfectly speaks to this energy.

RIPTIDE- by Robert Palmer  

Pee Wee’s Playhouse is back. I know you are…

http://nyti.ms/1DdYfC7 from the New York Times by J. Hoberman Oct 15 2014 DVD 

Pee Wee’s Playhouse for the uninitiated after a ten-year wait is now available on BLU RAY from SHOUT! Factory

PEE WEE was and always will be a mind-blowing fun romp of an ambiguous anarchic totally artsy children’s Saturday morning show that was wholly original. Something visually creative is juxtaposed with something else and everything is moving. It perfectly captures that age’s art movement in the late 80’s. If you want to be a big kid and HEH HEH like Pee- Wee you’ve gotta steep yourself in the Playhouse.

Some famous Pee Wee-isms- “I know you are but what am i?”

Some performers invent personas so boldly stylized that they refuse to break character, at least in public. Mae West was one. As were Harpo Marx and W. C. Fields. Stephen Colbert broke character only recently; but Pee-wee Herman -PAUL REUBENS  held on for years.

Like Mr. Colbert, Mr. Reubens used a regular television show as a vehicle for his invented personality: a manic, nerdy man-child in a too-small gray suit, red bow tie and lipstick. “Pee-wee’s Playhouse” (broadcast for five seasons, starting in fall 1986, in the Saturday-morning cartoon ghetto) was a fully realized private universe. It was also, as demonstrated by the complete 45-episode series and one Christmas special out on Blu-ray from Shout! Factory, a series of strongly conceptualized pieces. As packed as each episode is with outlandish props, linguistic pranks — many based on each week’s meant-to-be-screamed “secret word” — and running gags, PLAYHOUSE  is far too rich to binge-watch.

One of many Pee-weevian paradoxes was the instant popularity of Mr. Reubens’s hermetic spectacle, which made its debut, on CBS, the same month that Blue Velvet  David Lynch’s darker but not dissimilar exercise in personal fetishes and weird Americana, opened in movie theaters to an equally passionate response. “Playhouse,” which originally cost a sizable $325,000 per episode and was shot at first in a cramped SoHo loft, took viewers to a candy-colored world of sexual ambiguity and a realm of total anthropomorphism.

Every object was potentially alive: the window, the chair, the floor. The creatures who called the Playhouse home included miniature dinosaurs, sentient machines and a refrigerator of foodstuffs that enjoyed an ongoing fiesta. The mise-en-scène was wildly cluttered, and the show offered a veritable taxonomy of animation styles, combining puppetry, clay animation and video effects, while excerpting Depression-era cartoons on the living TV monitor, Magic Screen.

As Pee- Wee was an adult who acted like a child, so the “Playhouse” aesthetic blended high and low tech, the avant-garde and the vulgar. Art world precursors and analogues include Betty Boop, Red Grooms, the underground animator Sally Cruikshank, the midnight movie Forbidden Zone, East Village performance art, neo-Pop painters like Kenny Scharf, and Raw magazine (an early publisher of the cartoonist GARY PANTER, who was one of the show’s three original production designers).

The Playhouse was further distinguished by its racial diversity and frisky gender bending. Jambi the blue-faced genie (John Paragon) and the elaborately be-wigged Miss Yvonne (Lynne Marie Stewart), “the most beautiful woman in Puppet Land,” each in their way evoked drag performers. Dixie the cabdriver (Johann Carlo) and Reba the mail lady (a pre-law & Order S. Epatha Merkerson) were notably assertive women, while Cowboy Curtis (Laurence Fishburne) and the various hunky beach boys who drifted in and out of the Playhouse were bashful and flirtatious.

Not surprisingly, “Pee-wee’s Playhouse” quickly attracted the attention of academics interested in what was not yet known as “queer theory” or “gender studies.”

“Perhaps what is most unsettling about Pee-wee is the way he straddles the line between sexual knowledge and ignorance, as if he were somehow pre- and post-pubescent at the same time,” Ian Balfour wrote in one of three scholarly articles on “Playhouse” published in the special “Male Trouble” May 1988 issue of Camera Obscura: A Journal of Feminism and Film Theory. Perhaps it was this ambiguity that caused a career-stifling public outcry during the summer of 1991 when, with the show in permanent reruns, Mr. Reubens was busted for indecent exposure in an X-rated movie theater. Pee-wee was post-pubescent after all!

Evidently, Mr. Reubens grew tired of “Playhouse,” and the Shout! box is unavoidably front-loaded. Mr. Panter moved on after the first season; the original King of Cartoons and his herald, Dixie, soon departed as well. Many of the most memorable bits of business occurred in the show’s second season, including Pee-wee’s giant underpants, the pajama party during which he marries a bowl of fruit salad and the appearance of the friendless alien Zyzzybalubah.

The cast thinned a bit during the final three seasons. Jambi and the King of Cartoons receded while the more conventional performers Miss Yvonne and Cowboy Curtis became increasingly central. (Truly, having played a teenage Army grunt, a villainous Ike Turner and the guru Morpheus, as well as this Jheri-curled buckaroo, Mr. Fishburne is among the most versatile actors of his generation.) Still, the show remained remarkably consistent.

First telecast on Nov. 3, 1990, “Camping Out”is a great episode, featuring a real-time bathroom break, a cameo by Sandra Bernhard, a seeming glimpse of Big Bird in the fridge, and excerpts from two classic animations, Oskar Fischinger’s “Alegretto.” and Ub Iwerks’s “The Pincushionman” (a.k.a.”Balloon Land”). It is also the show in which Pee-wee throws caution to the wind: His camping trip with Cowboy Curtis is largely a single-entendre discussion of “wieners” and “buns.”

Shown two weeks later, the final episode, “Playhouse for Sale,” is even more self-reflexive. The secret word is “word.” Magic Screen functions as the host, while, confounded by the obtuseness of either Globey the globe or Pterri the pterodactyl, the ever-sunny Miss Yvonne nearly breaks character herself: “I think I’ve taken one too many trips to Puppet Land!”

My husband Napoleon worked on building the props for the first season in New York in 1986. He built CHAIRY and the Fridge and the animated food props. http://www.napob.com/#!press—pdfs

Almost the Saturn Return of Pee Wee’s first broadcast September 13 1986. Saturn was at 4 degrees of Sagittarius. The North and South Nodes were almost virtually reversed. Jupiter is now exactly trining where Uranus was then at 18 degrees of Sagittarius.

VENUS in Sagittarius. “I wanna rock your gypsy soul.” Oh the slings and arrows of love. THEY AIM HIGHER.

Gotta Love those Centaurs – half human, half horse. Sex and Love is  HONEST, animalistic and instinctive.

MAGRITTE_ VENUS IN SAGITTARIUS Tara Greene

RENE MAGRITTE LE VIOL {RAPE} 1934 PAINTING – he has Venus in Sagittarius 

Yes they whinny when making love, toss their beautiful manes, kick up their hoofs and snort with laughter.

Remember they are half-wild,  and only partly tame, so don’t try to teach them too many manners too quickly. 

 Just try to bust that bronco. You’ll find out. She or he will leave you with horseshoe marks on your ass.

The firey mutable sign,  feels like they are the center of attention. Ruled by Largest planet Jupiter, Sagittarius feels like they’re special. Pun intended. After all the Galactic Center is in THEIR sign.

SAGITTARIUS is the sign on Trump #14 called TEMPERANCE traditionally or ART/ALCHEMY  in the THOTH TAROT 

Ever loved a Sagittarius? Think about what you loved about them. They love adventure, don’t fence me in – they say.

Venus will travel through the 9th sign of Sagittarius October 7 -till November 5, Guy Fawkes Day – You know, V for Victory. If you are a Sagittarius or have planets there well then you might find yourself being more of a magnet those days.

Venus in Sagittarius characteristics – totally optimistic idealists. Honest to a fault, easy to like, casual, with no mysterious smokescreens, what you see is what you get. Blissfully naive. They appear confident and open, hence their charm. They have a good sense of humor. They seem like they don’t care.  Gamblers, outdoorsy, sporty you’ll find them in the gym,  in competitive sports,rock climbing, bungee jumping, martial arts.

A Sagittarius will suggest that you travel together to find out if you are compatible.

Sagittarius is a Masculine Mutable fire sign which governs teachers,  aviation, philosophers, adventurers,politicians,  law makers, animal rights activists, comedians, those who inspire, metaphysicians, religious leaders.

Venus in Fiery Sagittarius is spontaneous ,flirts with whoever turns them on, then leaves town at high noon,

leaving a trail of dust and your heart yearning for more.

With Jupiter in Cancer now, where Jupiter is exalted. Venus and Jupiter are at odds with each other.

Venus in Sagittarius honors  others right to be themselves, to come and go as they please,as they want to be treated.

Give your VENUS IN SAGITTARIUS beloved enough space. No need to tie them down, brand them and keep them corralled. Trust that they will come back and they probably will.

FAMOUS VENUS IN SAGITTARIUS peeps- It’s impressive,

WILD HORSES -THE ROLLING STONES

” I want to rock your gypsy soul “- 

Inspirational card of the Day,how’s your reputation? Macbeth,DMT, from Tara Greene

Inspurrational card of the day June 13

Since I had a lucid dream last night about a TOAD becoming my spirit animal

I felt compelled to check my Jamie Sam’s Animal Medicine Cards today

Skunk Animal medicine cards

Yes SKUNK MEDICINE 

I’ve written about Skunk medicine before.  SKUNK medicine, or power is not STINKY at all. 

In fact you could see it as a pun on Instincts. 

SKUNK medicine is very powerful and good because the skunk is known by its reputation alone.

Skunks are actually very timid creatures, known by its powerful smell.  Most animals, and people avoid the near sighted creature. It’s reputation precedes it. 

SKUNK MEDICINE teaches you  to walk your talk and respect yourself in order to create a position of strength and an honored reputation. Like skunk there is no need to bully, posture, aggravate or provoke others to protect themselves. With skunk medicine, you radiate an energy of self- esteem which permeates your body and psychic  energy field. You emanate strength no matter how small you are.

MEANING

Learn to assert who you are without any need for ego, pride or other postures. Others will respect you as you respect yourself. How you treat others and the standards you keep is how you will be treated back. You will also repel those who are not on the same level of intent. 

Skunk Song painting by Napoleon Brousseau

Skunk Song painting by Napoleon Brousseau 

Skunk medicine is also sexual energy. Animals use scents to attract mates. Sexual energy is very powerful and  should be used only when it’s appropriate and not for playing games or for seeing how “attractive” you are.  Your reputation as to how you deal with your self as a sexual being is always very important, especially for women.

Notice what kinds of people are attracted to you. What you believe about yourself is your ultimate protection.

We used to have a mama skunk and her babies living underneath our  my husband’s art studio in our backyard. When I used to smoke cigarettes I would be out there at night and I ran into the baby skunk a few times, it was like a cartoon- we both jumped back. As I meant it no harm it just stared at me and slowly loped away. I felt blessed  to have a skunk nearby.

Don’t stink up the place and leave a bad smell, taste or reputation behind you.

SKUNK SONG painting is by Napoleon Brousseau 1989 shown at the Purple Institution,Toronto.

More about TOAD medicine from my dear old friend Derek Robinson in B.C.

The toad’s the jewel in the skull .. witches of old europe like in Shakespeare’s “Toad, that under cold stone / Days and nights has thirty-one / Swelter’d venom sleeping got, / Boil thou first i’ the charmed pot” from Macbeth .. then there’s the sonoran desert toad whose skin venom contains large (as such things go) amounts of 5-Meo-DMT

see http://www.dmtsite.com/

DMT’s the dreaming drug produced in the pineal gland in the centre of the brain, very literally the third eye, like the living dinosaur New Zealand’s tuatara (yes!) still possesses in rudimentary form – “They are further unusual in having a pronounced photoreceptive eye dubbed the “third eye”, whose current function is a subject of ongoing research, but is thought to be involved in setting circadian and seasonal cycles.” sez wikipedia.

Andrew Weil gets the nod for scientifically pinning down the Sonoran desert toad cult, very likely Aztec & Mayan & more ancient shamanic devotees, there are these old mushroom stones from Mesoamerica with toads growing out of them.  

Funny that the NZ animal is called a TUATARA which is virtually the TARA MANTRA!!!!

So watch your dreams very carefully these day. The SATURN NEPTUNE GRAND TRINE will make them LUCIDLY real.  “waking up to the dream” seems to be the prevailing mood on planet earth about now
