Cuba U.S. relations reborn, Cigars anyone?

In the news- never a dull moment. President Obama announced a new era of relations with Communist Cuba after 56 years. 56 = 8 x 7 which is like a second Saturn return.  Two x 28. The old cold war trade embargoes haven’t worked. The Pope [!]  and Canada were partly involved in facilitating and assisting in an American prisoner being  released. Canada has maintained open trade with Cuba all these years. America will re-open an embassy and Americans will be allowed to travel and bring back Cuban cigars, rum and other goods to the U.S. 

Uranus and Pluto and Saturn are at it again.

CUBA US astrology by Tara Greene

The large chart is the chart for the Republic of Cuba in 1902 when it gained independence from the U.S. and transits of December 17, 2014.

Cuba’s Sun is conjunct to the weeping 7 sisters, the archeo-mythic Pleiades. Also this is ALgol, Medusa’s head or the demon star,the star of dictators. Algol means alcohol in Arabic. The Arabs were famous mathematicians and astrologers. Algol is connected to fear of primal feminine power.

Cuba’s name originally meant “fertile earth” and that’s a great description for a Taurus Sun at 28 degrees also  on the “critical 29th degree.” Cuba would be a most earthy, sensual, stubborn, realistic, creative, musical and resourceful place. 

Cuba’s Moon in Scorpio is conjunct the North Node. The People are the Moon in a country’s chart. They dictate its direction, and they are very emotional, dramatic, intense, soulful, secreted away,controlled, possessive,sexy and transformative. 

Cuba’s Ascendent at ZERO degrees Virgo. The Fixed Star Regulus, star of Kings entered the Constellation Virgo the Goddess since November 2011. Regulus aka Raphael the Archangel is also symbolized by this star which rules the heart chakra. Yes Cuba’s Star is rising and protected by this Angel. The big island is spot on to be a major player in the next segment of evolution as the earth Mother, the Virgin Goddess once again ascends. Cuba will be leading us into ways of living in a more ecologically natural balanced way and to harvest her gifts with respect.

Cuba vacation Astrology

MERCURY, PLUTO, NEPTUNE conjunction in Gemini the 10th house of worldly status.

Cuban would be a nation of extremes. Mercury, Pluto, Neptune in Gemini is a country built on powerful idealism, rhetoric and secret cabals of power. I wont go into Castro’s chart here. Cuba has always worn two faces, two masks. I have been to Cuba and found the people to be very Gemini like, open, charming, innocent exuberant, curious, idealistic and proud of their ability to stand alone in the world. 

Venus at the mid- degree of Aries and Mars is in Taurus. Both planets are debilitated in each others signs and in mutual reception. Women are very strong and independent in Cuba. Mars is action and relates to cars,Mars in Taurus symbolizes the antique preserved cars in Cuba born out of necessity. Mars in Taurus is more passive. It delights in the paradise of the Island. Taurus is indolentdoesnt like change. Cubans  lover of music, dance, creativity and the arts, farming and resourcefulness.

Jupiter in Aquarius symbolizes new ideas, a classless society, communist ideals. The workers {6th house} share the wealth.

Saturn is Retrograde in Capricorn in the 5th house. There is  respect for tradition, the Patriarchy, hard work, working the land. With Saturn Retrograde it symbolizes being  orphaned, or rejected by  various countries over its history. The U.S. Natal Pluto is exactly at this same degree 27 degrees Capricorn. The two countries have a fated intertwined history.

Uranus at 20 degrees Sagittarius Retrograde opposite PLUTO and Mercury show the REVOLUTIONARY higher inspirational nature of Cuba. Its power in the world is its ability to be philisophical,and in taking the high road. 

December 17 2014

The Uranus Pluto square of Monday December 15, sees the two planets transiting exactly on Cuba’s Venus in the 8th house! This is the Scorpio house of rebirth, death, taxes, recycling, of other people’s money. Yes a New revolutionary wave has hit Cuba again. This is invigorating and infuses new technology to its economy, status, values and culture.

Pluto in the 5th house is squaring Venus and also conjunction Cuba’s Natal Chiron, where it is most vulnerable, wounded but which also holds the greatest healing at 14 degrees Capricorn. Big money, corporations and power will start to flow into Cuba from American tourism, new infrastructure, hotels and business ventures which brings rebirth and new life.

Saturn is exactly opposite Cuba’s SUN, changing the serious role of Cuba on the world’s stage. These are sobering heavy realities for Cubans which will be another type of test.. The test will be how much it limits itself and how it retains its history, laws and  ideology as it matures into a new karmic evolutionary stage. Jupiter will also square Saturn and Cuba’s Sun next August.  I believe communist consumerism will work in Cuba the way it has in China. 

Jupiter in Leo in the 12th house is opposite Cuba’s natal Jupiter and squaring its Mars in Taurus in the 9th house. This is always expansive, opportune, good fortune but not openly visible. The heart of the peoples’ will is what will propel Cuba’s future forward. Jupiter is travel, and tourism has saved Cuba. Many players will by jockeying for position. There will be new educational learning curves and much exports of cigars as a status symbol. Jupiter will cross Cuba’s Ascendant next August 13, 2015 that will be  like a butterfly emerging from a long chrysalis stage in its full beauty.

Neptune is Trining Cuba’s North Node at 4 degrees Scorpio from the 7th house of relationships with all ‘others.” Cuba will have to be very careful of wearing those rose colored glasses as it may idealize the dream. Neptune rules glamour, all the illusory stuff of Hollywood and American consumer culture.  Neptune also rules drugs, addictions, gambling,and debt. We don’t want Cuba to go this route.This was part of what Cuba’s revolution took place against. Cuba did not sell out in the past that is one of its strengths and goals to be obsessively Scorpio strong in its unwavering desire.

Get ready to cha-cha. Smoke big cigars and see those beautiful 50’s imported cars being sold for bug bucks. Viva Cuba.

I also wanted to include this link for another way of seeing the synchronicity of the date to the planets by Olga Morales also a Cosmic Intelligence Agent.

Russian roulette ruble rubble, 2015 Astrology predictions

The 6th exact Uranus  Pluto square of December 15  made headlines with Russian Ruble roulette as the currency collapsed against the U.S. dollar. Uranus symbolizes unexpected chaos, new cycles. Pluto symbolizes death, wealth, power. The Rouble has lost 25% of its value in the past three weeks and is now as low as it was in 1998, when Russia defaulted on its debt.  Russian leaders and banks went into an emergency meeting and raised interest rates from 10 to 17%. World oil prices have slumped causing the recent crash, plus Russia is under tough sanctions from the U.S. Is Russia teetering on economic and political collapse?

Russia finances Astrology Tara Greene

U.S. Congress passed a bill  which sets out legislation which authorizes – but does not legally require President Obama to provide lethal and non-lethal military aid to Ukraine, including anti-tank weapons, ammunition and troop-operated surveillance drones. Obama must decide whether to sign this bill or not.

Mr. Putin, who is the worlds richest man from oil and tyranny is in big trouble. With a Capital C that rhymes with Putin that stands for pain.

VLADIMI PUTIN IS A LIBRA born October 7, 1952 in St. Petersburg Russia at 9:30 am.

Vlad, like the VAMPIRE,  has his NATAL SUN at 13 degrees of LIBRA conjunct SATURN at 17 degrees LIBRA. Yes- you guessed it. We know why Russia is having an economic meltdown with Putin at the helm now. This will continue into 2015 and 2016 when Pluto squares Putin’s Saturn. 

Russia also claimed its right to send nuclear weapons into the Ukraine in a statement to show the world it will not back down from its “ownership” of the area. Russia cannot move its strategic nuclear forces around the country with out officially verifying this with the U.S. unless it wants to withdraw from the 2010 New START treaty. 

Russia economy Astrology Tara Greene

There a number of different chart that Astrologers use for Russia. This is the most common one. 

PLUTO, Lord of death, recycling, power, control, is conjunct Russia’s NEPTUNE the planet which rules OIL, natural gas, illusions, delusions, addictions. Neptune in the 11th house Retrograde at 13 degrees Capricorn also  being squared by URANUS planet of revolutions, chaos, the unexpected and freedom in Russia’s large first house. 
Russia’s Jupiter is at 15 degrees of  CANCER which symbolizes the motherland, home, food, the people, expansion, education, optimism emotional security and safety. Russia has a big stomach and is a huge breadbasket for its people. It has just voted NOT to use GMO’s Monsanto seeds.

Jupiter’s Cancer is very close to major Fixed star Sirius also 2 degrees from the U.S.  SUN at 13 degrees. Of course Jupiter is also being pounded by a Uranus square to homeland security and Pluto in Capricorn expanding its own sense of what it refers to as its “home lands.”  Jupiter in the 5th house will force Russia to rely on its own creative resources.

Jupiter will transit Russia’s descendant where it intersects with all “others.” It will expand into other people’s lands even more around October 2015.

Saturn is now also exactly opposite Russians Natal Mercury at 29 degrees TAURUS -extremely stubborn thinkers and communicators which is conjunct to the famous PLEIADES or 7 weeping sister, 7 kumars, of astromythic fame. Be very careful what you say Mr. Putin. Saturn will again affect this sore spot in the summer of 2015.

NEPTUNE planet of dissolution will cross Russia’s Ascendant at 11 degrees PISCES in mid April – July 2016 and again in 2017. Saturn Lord of karma, death, will be at 20 degrees of Sagittarius opposite Russia’s sun in December 2016. so BYE BYE Russia as we have known it with in the next 2 years.

China and Russia just signed trade agreements, for Russia to export cheap oil to China.

On Dec 14, China’s Premiere Li Keqiang went to Kazakhstan to sign cooperation agreements with  Prime Minister Massimov. China has already signed on to revive ancient Silk Trade Routes with a $40 billion infrastructure plan to link markets across Asia. China is Kazakhstan’s biggest trade partner since 2010, they share a 1,000 mile border.  This has broad military implications as well.

China in now the wealthiest country in the world and will retain that crown for quite some time.  Remember that the U.S. is in a Mars Retrograde phase in its progressed chart till the 2070’s. 

CHINA’s astrology chart CHINA astrology Tara Greene

China’s NEPTUNE at 14 degrees Libra is smack dab in the Grand Cardinal cross of 2014 and Neptune rules oil, illusion, delusion, oneness, completion, hidden enemies, karma, religion and spirituality. Libra rules DIPLOMACY, grace, karma, balance; equal relationships which China does NOT have. Hidden enemies is a key word in China as well to watch for.

China is having a KARMIC CARDINAL CROSS as Uranus Pluto and the Nodes of the Moon are conjoining its natal Nodes. China’s North Node at 16 degrees Aries symbolizes its highest spiritual growth in the 2nd house of Money, values, resources and innovation, new inspirational energy and leadership is being aspected now and especially in 2015 at the last square on March 16 2015.  Yes China is once again the largest populated and economic force in the world.There may be a big shakeup coming in China in 2015 -2016. 

TURKEY

Turkey has now become a future player in Russia’s oil dilema.  Russia has surprisingly dropped a $45 billion south stream natural gas pipeline and is reaching out to Turkey to draw it in by building a Trans- Anatolian Pipeline running under the Black Sea to the Greek border, making Turkey an energy hub.  But the two countries do not agree on Syria, the Crimea or Cypress. We shall see. This will be a hot bed for a while.

TURKEY              Turkey astrology Tara Greene

has Venus at 11 degrees of Cancer in its 4th house. So trying to keep its own values and resources safe and protected is a major issue. Turkey is a very ancient culture and stronghold. Turkey has Uranus at 8 degrees Aries in its 10th house of worldly status and an 8 degree Cancer Ascendant. With a 16 degree PISCES MID HEAVEN Turkey is very vulnerable and wounded by religious factions and being able to maintain its secular stance.  Religion will be a major political and economic problem and force over the next year as Chiron transits that point. Jupiter will hit the IC or roots of Turkey in October 2015 which may cause a mass exodus from here or an invasion from another country.

Yes sometimes the transits do exactly synchronistically coincide. The crash of the markets in October 2008 was exactly only 8 days after Pluto entered Capricorn.  Don’t say I didn’t warn you in advance.
