January 1, new year’s inspiration

I spent Dec 31st evening at a party at a fancy restaurant in downtown Toronto. It was an interesting very mixed age crowd. I read tarot for people from 16- 62 years old. That is not something you see often. It was a pretty low-key New Years energy as I thought it would be under that Void of course Moon. There wasn’t that much traffic either.

What I love so much about my work is that I get to meet so many different  people and get to hear so many very intimate details about their lives. Some people have many difficulties to deal with; cancer or infertility, others have deep losses they are grappling with, of parents or spouses. Some are spiritual seekers cleverly disguised as “ordinary people”.  Most commonly people feel dissatisfied about their lives and don’t know how to trust their instincts to be able to make changes. But as different as their lives and struggles are, we all have the same things in common. I am just so touched that people open up so easily though the medium of the tarot. I feel most humbly honored and touched to be able to advise them, even at a party, which to many seems like “entertainment.”  I can sense the shock when they know I have honed into a very deep shadow part of themselves. I also like to give people hope, inspiration and optimism. I do this if I see it in the cards and if I can help them navigate a new more positive direction in their lives. 

JANUARY is not just the root word of the  Roman God JANUS, the two-faced God. Janus presided over the beginning and ending of conflict, hence war and peace. The doors of his temple were open in time of war, and closed to mark the peace. As a god of transitions, he had functions pertaining to birth and to journeys and exchange. Janus was invoked during the year for every new ceremony. 

I came home and thanked and swept the old 2015 energies out the door and welcomed in 2016’s new energies. I smudged my house clearing the energies and invoking new ones. I started off the year with a bit of champagne, I am not much of a drinker. I toasted with my family. We ate this amazing Caramel salted chocolate cake which we had because it was my husband’s birthday New Years eve. I also had a great chat on FB with my cousin Carol who lives in Palenque Mexico. 

INSPIRATIONAL CARD OF  THE NEW YEAR

Ace of Pentacles by Tara Greene

ACE of PENTACLES by Tara Greene 

My first Tarot card on day 1 of 2016. For a New Year’s day divination I pulled the Ace of Pentacles from the Tarot of Metamorphosis. How perfect is that? I couldn’t upload the picture because my phone is acting screwy. I couldn’t find it in an online search. So I decided that I needed to create my own based on a similar image. Necessity is the mother of all creation. Voila. I like it, Computers are so great. I will keep this up. I am so inspired. 

The Ace of Disks or Pentacle is the root and pure potential of all physical things. The acorn, the seed, egg, foetus, spec, mote, glint, spark, big bang.   How perfect as an image of a New Year?

ORACLE

All is pure potential awaiting your intention, creativity and nurturing. This is true of every moment. 

have a happy New Year. 

many blessings

NEW YEAR’s DAy – U2 2004

Virgin Birth, Divine love child conception

Congratulations, we have just been impregnated with a Divine Love Child, world. Celebrate.

The Venus Occultation by the Moon December 7/8 was an occult love affair, a sacred and divine marriage, an alchemical symbol which opens our heart chakras and spirit wombs symbolized as an Immaculate conception, a Virgin, a conception through parthenogenesis of Divine Goddess Love energy.  We do so need this Divine Love energy now.

The Venus and Moon occultation looked just like a human ovum being fertilized by a  single sperm. “As above so below.” 

An occultation of one planet by another is just like an eclipse. In this case the two most Feminine planets have joined their energies. This is a mother and child reunion,  Demeter and Persephone reunited in the Ancient Myths. Venus is Inanna in the ancient myths she passes through various gates of initiation as she passes through her 8 year cycle, which creates a beautiful pentagram or 5 pointed star.  T o learn more about this please read the Cosmic Intelligence agency’s Julija’s writing about the 5th gate which is synchronistically the 5th chakra or the throat center, connected to the root or sexual center of power.

http://www.cosmicintelligenceagency.com/2015/11/venus-the-descent-of-inanna-and-the-7-gates/

The Moon, symbol of the Divine Celestial Mother, the womb, the unconscious, our emotions and the people on general will be blessed by this loving nurturing energy. Moon dew is soma or a magical elixir which combines with Venus, the Goddess of Love,  Inanna, Diana, Kwan Yin, Green Tara, she has thousands of names, to bring healing, compassion, psychic insights, and Feminine energy and wisdom into the foreground. The Great Mother’s energy is indeed on the rise.

The Moon in the Tarot is #18                                                                                          VENUS is The Empress Trump #3

With all the crazy energies going on in the world my heart has ached the last few day has yours? This is your heart chakra opening wider in synchronicity with this Venus/Luna eclipse. Feel everything, stay open and compassionate with your self and the state of ignorance and fear in the world these days. We have just been given a huge boost of Divine love, a shot in the heart to help us on to the next stage in our growth. 

The Moon and Venus were in the sign of Transformational Soulful Scorpio at 2 degrees in Tropical astrology.  Check on where the Love eclipse is happening in your Natal chart. It will have a different meaning for each person depending on which house it falls in and what aspects 2 degrees Scorpio makes. This heralds endings, letting go, rebirths and new beginnings. Scorpio is fixed feminine emotional controlling, obsessive energy. If you need to let go of holding onto a relationship this is the best time to do so.

 In Sidereal reckoning the occultation occurred in Libra, which Venus rules. It’s all about relationships, being peaceful and finding the middle way, the balance.

Venus is moving towards her Superior conjunction with the Sun,  June 6  @16° Gemini. This is nine and a half months, equal to a human gestation, since her last Retrograde conjunction with the Sun back on August 23rd 2015 in Leo.

A new conception of Divine Love has been seeded in our world and in your life. Feel it, give thanks, nurture it. Eat for two, sing lullabies to your unborn child. Prepare a safe nest. Glow. Women and men are all pregnant with this new Divine Love. It will be born on June 6 2016.  6/6/9 =21/ The World in the Tarot and the Soul/root is #3 The EMPRESS. Love is giving birth to itself.

Occultation of Venus

 

 

Pregnant Moon, fertility Valentine’s from Tara Greene

Feb 10 and 11th are two of the most fertile, expansive, rich and emotionally rewarding days this month. 
GREAT DAYS TO CONCEIVE. Planting seeds on all levels. It’s all about Divine Timing.
There are very supportive planetary energies from a CANCER Moon, where the Moon is totally at home, in her favourite place, the womb, the cave, a shell, a humble abode. Cancer is of course the sign of the Mother, nurturing, emotional security. Not necessarily a crabby mom, just protecting her fragility.
Pregnant astrology Tara Greene
MOON CONJUNCT JUPITER Feb 10 @ 9:27 pm PST / Feb 11 @ 12:27 am EST
Heightened fertility, really LUCKY conception time. Cancer is RECEPTIVE, considered to be that totally feminine trait. It’s the ability to soak up, open up to. Sign of Cancer is La Mer, the oceans, from which all life on earth originated and whence the name mother derives. Especially high tides on Valentines day Full Moon.
Jupiter is the planet of expansion, opportunity, luck, wealth and faith. Esoterically the planet of the Higher Master Teachers. 

Jupiter is still in Cancer’s power is considered to be “exalted.” This aspect is potent till July 16. Exploit it.

A waxing pregnant Moon to Valentine’s Day also helps propel this highly romantic energy forwards. 
2/11
CANCER Moon trines Chiron, which allows for healing, compassion, forgiveness, cleansing. Tears will flow.
If you are trying to get pregnant I know from my experience of trying to conceive our daughter Leah for months, that it is agonizing month after month when nothing happens, no conception, your blood flows, it’s failure. There is a backlog of grief, loss, fear and despair sets in. You need to be clear and free, crying is good, your tears like the sea washes away the pain.
Moon opposes PLUTO and VENUS in Capricorn between 3:05 am EST= 9:20 am.
PLUTO VENUS is very powerful, concrete, IT’s REAL. Real Love, Real staying power. Really serious.
Have a single pointed desire for a child with all of your heart, mind and soul. Once you do that – your intention flies straight and true.
Conceiving a child is a totally spiritual matter. Both partners ideally need to be in their highest, clearest true heart’s space.  
The Pregnancy Card in the Tarot is the EMPRESS
Empress Tarot cards Tara Greene
She is VENUS, the Great Mother, Divine Feminine
They must be conscious of what they are desiring and can create. You and your partner are the Goddess and the God who bring forth life as a microcosm of the macro. As above, so below. Be in a state of divine respect, tenderness and honor in your love-making.
Your mutual desire to have a child, draws down from other dimensions, a soul, an essentially spiritual being who will take on a physical form and body. All children come into life with a soul contract, a sacred karmic contract with the mother and father. You agree to help assist each other’s soul’s to grow, to experience, to share. Usually a child is a past life acquaintance. The child could have been your mother, father or lover, an enemy, or a friend. Your child can be all of these at different points on your lifetimes together. The outcome of the soul contract cannot be judged from the limited human perspective. Trust that it is so. 
If it’s not a physical child that you are desiring, then you can still use this time wisely.
MAKE LOVE on all levels, spiritually, sexually, emotionally, mentally, physically to the world. To a new idea, a new habit, a new perspective, outlook, business, literal house, job way of giving, walking, acting, appreciating.
THE SUN in Aquarius squares Saturn in Scorpio later in the day
This brings some tension, Both are in fixed I WONT BACK DOWN signs. But it keeps the light shining from the higher heavens, open, free, and keeps it real, down and dirty too.
Moon continues on to TRINE SATURN
Brings in that foundation, the physical plane. It’ s a deep oceanic bliss, a sexual karmic orgasmic connection.
Last but not least
Moon quincunx’s the SUN at day’s end PST early a.m. on the 12th
Do not jump out of bed at the end of lovemaking. Don’t check in with your phone.  Cancer’s are very vulnerable and need holding cuddling, lots of tenderness. If you act to cool and all Aquarian that will fizzle the mood.
I have had three clients bring up the trying to conceive question in the last couple of days.
Your own personal Astrology chart and your partner’s should be examined to determine where you are at in relationship to your own personal cycles of fertility and responsibility.
It is generally most powerful for Cancer people, Aries, Libra and Capricorn right now too.
