Fated shift, into Motherlode in Cancer 2018-2020.

The True North Node of the Moon, a Fated highest collective directive, our “True North” leaves the fiery, dramatic, leadership sign of Leo and enters the emotional, nurturing, watery, feminine sign of Cancer, the Mother, November 6th for the next 18 months until June 4, 2020.  The Nodes always move Retrograde, backward in the Zodiac as do the Procession of the Equinoxes. The shifts repeat every 18.6 years.

We will want Cancerian motherly support and feelings, a mother-centric not patriarchal corporate everything for profit values.

Some astrologers use the ‘Mean Nodes” this doesn’t mean these Nodes are bitchy or nasty. In that case, the Mean Nodes change on November 15th. There are 9 days of a discrepancy.

The North Node is a symbol of emotional growth and of evolving Dharma. The South Node symbolizes unresolved karma, our past lives, or actions that we individually and collectively accrue through our DNA. Karma is merely cause and effect. The symbol of Karma is JUSTICE in the Tarot, the scales of which lawyers still use today. The Universe seeks balance.

When we are living from our South Node we are largely unconscious of our actions, past lives and deeds and blindly tend to repeat the same negative behaviors over and over again recreating the same old, same old effects leaving us wondering why this is happening to us. Has someone cursed me? Is it just our own dumb bad luck?

When we become aware and conscious and investigate our behaviors by asking ourselves how we really feel, and why is this same thing {effect} happening to us over and over, we begin to take responsibility for ourselves and stop blaming outside influences. This karma then becomes our dharma, our living from a freely created destiny-the unfamiliar new territory of the North Node.

For the last 18 months, we’ve been seeing the South Node effects of Aquarius, a detached collective sign of rebellious individuals seeking freedom from those in power, the Leo North Node-the sign of Kings, leaders, the superwealthy. 

What will the immediate effects of leaving the Aquarius South Node behind look like? People will want emotional contact and will not be content with virtual, detached Aquarius hi-tech social media we’ve been living through.  

The South Node in Capricorn helps all of us remember a long montage of all the long cold hard winters our ancestors spent just trying to survive, or the difficulties thousands of soldiers faced in the endless trenches and wars for the machine of Government or duty; or the endless hours of work billions of people have endured as slaves. The South Node in Capricorn brings strength, practicality, and endurance.  It symbolizes work, hierarchies, careers, corporate structure, history, time, traditions, and the lure of the physical world which we need to reaccess now.

And most importantly Capricorn symbolizes the Patriarchy, the forefathers. The PATRIARCHY and all of its religious dogma of control by the fathers must be reassessed now. We are leaving behind Capricorn old Patriarchal Corporate power and world domination themes. We will be letting go of being ruled by the tyranny of linear time, the focus on the material world, capitalist accrual, leaving behind the iron rule of the Patriarchal God- the punishing, controlling, jealous, angry, manipulative Father figure, separated from the Matrix and the earth whose sole purpose has been to dominate Her and all women.

We must evolve towards the loving nurturing of the Cancerian Great Mother now. We are all tired lonely and worn out from so much hard work and being enslaved to the Patriarchy- women and men too.

The last times the North Node was in Cancer

October 27, 1925- April 16, 1927

May 12, 1944- December 3, 1945 

December 24, 1962- August 25, 1964

September 25, 1981, to March 16, 1983

April 10, 2000, to October 13, 2001

If you were born with your North Node in Cancer this will be a much more powerful personal experience for you.

If you were born with North Node in Capricorn this transit allows you to change direction.

May 31, 1916- Feb, 13, 1918

March 9, 1935- Sept. 13, 1936

October 10, 1953 – April 2, 1955

April 28, 1972 – October 27 1973

Nov. 19 1990- August 1, 1992

August 21, 200 – March 2, 2011

March 27, 2028- September 23, 2029.

Let the Children Play

We all need to allow our inner children out to nurture and to play and to simply be and not do. We must simply allow absolute unconditional love for who we are and to be nurtured by the Living Goddess which is the Milky Way Galaxy we are always in her. We must bring children back to a state of innocence and trust. Too much child-trafficking and mind control has been allowed.

We need to fill ourselves up with and become the Mothers of Compassion, like Kwan Yin, Green or White Tara or Mother Mary to Christians, the Shekinah to the Jews, to all the children of the earth- that is our prime survival directive now. 

Cancer is associated with food, and with water. Issues around having enough food and pure Non-GMO foods will become primal. Preserving and having good clean nonlead, non-fluoridated, uncontaminated clean water will also be absolutely essential. The Oceans will also take a central role for the world’s attention as the oceans will soon have 1 ton of plastic to every 3 tons of fish in them. Our oceans are dying and their importance on the climate in the world is huge. 

Restoration of the Innocence of the child

Cancer is all about family. A return to old-fashioned home-cooked meals and the traditional Sunday night dinners as our parents and grandparents used to have will be revived but also with friends.  

Many women will choose to leave corporate careers to establish more feminine valued centered ways to work. Job sharing, community daycare, food dispersion, workstations, and nursing each other’s babies. Having children will become very popular as life will be valued in itself. women rush to get pregnant and have larger families. Water births and old-fashioned home births with midwives will be hip. Nursing babies in public will be the norm. As will all functions of women’s bodies- menstrual health, sexuality and aging. The Crone is also a Cancerian aspect of the Mother, the wise elder or Grandmother.

We will choose to feel our feeling with the North Node in Cancer. We will cry whenever we feel like it, whether it’s our party or not. 

Our homes, our roots, and ancestors become very important. We will want to know where we come from and what our foremothers felt and did. Many millions of women’s lives have been overlooked overshadowed and ignored by history. Their lives will not be in vain and this will be restored.

We will recognize the wisdom of the child who naturally dances, makes art, sings, and plays. We will enjoy living in the Moment, of being continuously awed by the universe and its miraculous nature. We will be innocent and naive and believe in fairies, unicorns, magic and unseen friends. We are open to feeling all that is around us in every dimension. We learn to trust our intuition and our feelings fully. We will learn to live and love as fountains of wisdom.

Venus in the Heart of the Sun Cazimi

Cosmic Intelligence Agency image Venus Pentagram

Venus Pentagram Venus Retrograde Star point

October 26 @ 7;16 am PDT/ 10:16 am EDT and 2:16 pm GMT Venus is at the very heart of the SUN, called Cazimi.  If we think of Venus the Goddess of Love and Beauty symbolizes the heart itself then Venus in Scorpio symbolizes the shadow heart being purified in the Light of the heart of the Sun.

This day and point mark the inception of the Phoenix cycle where Venus is consumed in the flames. This alchemical point is a cauterizing, a burning away, a melting down,a fiery process of alchemy of dying into the Sun’s light and therefore absorbing the gift of Light and Gold that is the Sun preparing for a rebirth.

With Venus Retrograde in Scorpio, this is the point in the Dark Night of the Soul when all hope is lost, when the ego is totally destroyed and surrenders, let’s go and gives itself up to death. As the cosmic Myth of Inanna the oldest known poem It is at this very moment of touching our own mortality that rebirth and transcendence begins. 

The spark of light in the dark is the ember from which all is created is rekindled.

The last time Venus was Cazimi in the heart of the sun was during her last venus point on June 6, 2016, note the 6/6/16 significance. 

The Sun and Venus join every 9.5 months which is the length of a human gestation cycle. The Sun and Venus move from one conjunction, inferior to the next superior and so on. A constantly forming cycle creates a Pentagram shape. T Every second time the sun and Venus meet they create the beautiful pattern on Love. In 8 years the whole cycle is complete. And Venus creates a rose pattern in this cycle as well.

The Heart, the rose, and the pentagram are impressive enough cosmic symbols but Venus is also linked to the ratios of Sacred geometry the Golden Mean and the Fibonacci Sequence.

On the Tail of a Taurus Full Moon ruled by Venus which is Retrograde, this auspicious date October 26 is considered to be highly fortunate as Venus is considered to be on the Throne of The King. This makes her a Queen, a Sovereign in her own right. Venus can influence and work magic now in ways she never can. She is wearing an invisibility cloak, we cannot see her in the Light of the Sun but we know in our hearts that she is there. If you witnessed Venus in her rare crossing in front of the sun on June 2012 you will remember how powerful this was. 

At 3 degrees Scorpio you will want to circle where that degree is in your Natal chart. This is a point of New Beginnings, love rising from the ashes and the shadows. After deep psychological excavation we are given the promise of new life. It is like a variation on the Eleusinian mysteries.

A lot of this Scorpio rebirth energy is about deep self-love. I feel this energy myself and it seems to be what the world needs now Love.Venus in Scorpio is and will continue to be a very deep dark soulful journey of dismembering our egos like Inanna in the descent. Venus turns Stationary on November 16th but Venus will not bypass her retrograde degree until December 18. Venus remains in Scorpio until January7/8 2019. Venus entered Scorpio on September 9. Returns to Libra on Halloween and remains in her home sign until  December 2nd.

Spend the next few days with Venus at the heart of the sun basking in the light. feeling the warm and tenderness of the heart after the chill dark night of the Soul spent forlorn in excruciating pain, crying and wailing from loneliness from feeling abandoned and desperate. This is the point where our hearts and souls have warmed anew, where we feel that we have faith that there is indeed light and love everlasting burning from within our hearts and souls.

Venus at the heart of the sun also reminds me of Woman of the Apocalypse

The Woman Clothed with the Sun and the moon under her feet and upon her head a crown of twelve stars. She is pregnant and about to give birth. Chapter 12 of Revelations written in AD 95.

Sit proud on your throne of Golden Light. You are sovereign a Queen. Light the way of the heart for all to follow.

sending you blessings during these great times.

Mercury is the big mover this week

Serious Moon today under the Capricorn moon which is conjunct power planet PLUTO in the early .a.m. 

Moon and Sun square off today.  we are one week to another Moon cycle on the 24th a DULL Moon in Taurus. That should have read full moon lol

the moon sextiles Jupiter in the late afternoon and then is Void of Course

Moon sextiles Chiron in PISCES in PDT/October 17 in EDT and GMT

this can bring on depression and feelings of being lost, or trying to run away from our feelings. Don’t during Venus Retrograde we need to jump right down the rabbit hole of our greatest fears and shadows. we need to strip ourselves bare. 

There are only 3 major planetary aspects this week.

Mercury is the Magician in the tarot #1 

the Magician is consciousness, intellect, analysis, words and ideas, the trickster, the merchant. ruler of thieves.

the Mercury-Venus conjunction on the  15th talk and rehash those conversations

Mercury Trine Neptune on the 19th

Great for spiritual epiphanies, creative inspiration, dream talking, dream groups and lucid dreaming, the flow inspirations,dancing,singing, painting, creating, soulmate talking, 

Mercury square Mars in Aquarius on the 19th

This aspect assists us to be detached from the deep emotions enough to see clearly the higher perspective. It is very healing. 

A quote from Borges the famous Argentinian writer a quote.

“All that happens to us, including our humiliations, our misfortunes, our embarrassments, all is given to us as raw material, as clay, so that we may shape our art.”

Review your love life

October 15 I know Venus Retro is still making everyone cry a lot, relationships are tough, in a tizzy. Even Pete Davidson and Ariana Grande break up after a whirlwind engagement.  I am going through my own relationship issues with a very close family member which began when Mars was Retrograde. It is hard. I cry a lot. My heart aches. I have been sleeping with a rose quartz stone on my heart chakra every night. I try not to think about it all the time but that is very hard with Venus in SCORPIO which is obsessively unrelentingly focussed on the why? doing the detective excavation work, remembering forgotten parts of the past. 

Under a serious Capricorn Moon today until the 17th 

things are rather light and easy beneficial aspects today which helps get things done through sextiles from the Moon to Mercury in Scorpio, Venus in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces. Its easier to touch our emotional bodies.

MERCURY and VENUS meet up in Scorpio at 8 degrees 

The Sabian symbol is “The Moon shining across a lake.”

This is a very apropos image. Reflect on your emotions and on the depths of your womb/soul experience. All water elements refer us back to our own beginning in the waters of our mother’s wombs.

Obsessively rehashing rethinking probability-izing what could have been said differently. Remorse, reminiscing,  regrets, and analyzing every nuance from every direction. This aspect is in effect all week then Mercury and MARS in AQUARIUS square off. 

Stay with it. write things down, Don’t drive yourself crazy obsessing over this, I know it will be hard. 

This may also bring back old lovers and friends to rehash those conversations with.

We are like emotional archeologists and forensics digging up old skeletons sorting through the bones of forgotten memories of emotional and or sexual or power abuses.

Elections November 6 2018 Astrology

Mid-Term elections in the U.S. are very important in the continuing evolving revolutionary saga of the United States. 

The Mid-Term elections in the United States are held every two years in the middle of a Presidential term. Members of the U.S. Congress are up for election including all 435 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives and 35 of the 100 Seats in the U.S. Senate. These elections are important because whichever party holds the majority in Congress can set the national legislative agenda. Republicans have the majority in both the House of Representatives and the Senate but are currently projected to lose the House.

Let’s look at how these midterms will turn out based on Astrology. The chart is set to 11:00 pm EST in WASHINGTON because 8:00 pm is the close of the west coast voting poll stations.

Mid term elections Astrology tara Greene

The Sun and Moon are conjunct in Scorpio, it’s the day before a New Moon indicating a culmination cycle. The Moon always symbolizes the public and it’s moods and women specifically. Sun and Moon in the 8th sign is an emotional feminine sign of power struggles, sex, revenge, obsession, endings, money, psychology, secrets, death and rebirth. Given the recent anger of millions of women who were outraged by Judge Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court appointment after Fords’ testimony that he sexually abused her was ignored they felt. We can see the women coming out in full force to defeat the Republicans. Moreover, the Sun and Moon are in the 4th house of roots, women, mothering, emotional safety. Women came out en masse to tell their experiences of sexual abuse and risking their own emotional safety to tell their stories and support each other.

Mars, the ruler of Scorpio is in Aquarius at 24 degrees squaring Jupiter at the last most critical 29th degree. This is a hard aspect. Mars in Aquarius is freedom from the past, and anger and rage over any restrictive traditional path. Jupiter expands Mars fighting mad liberating energy. This can work two ways- many Democrats are now acting like they are justified in their anger because the Republicans actions are so restrictive, controlling and traditional. This could backfire as well. Republican men started the poor me men are victims of false rape accusation which is so minimal in reality and totally overlooks and denies the very real Patriarchal male domination of women, blacks and immigrants issues.

This is very chaotic energy as Uranus, ruler of Aquarius is an electrically charg

ed tribal mindset. Mars is also conjunct to the U.S Natal Moon at 27 Aquarius and Jupiter is now squaring that too bringing an even bigger jolt. The Moon in the U.S. July 4, 1776, chart is women, Mom, apple pie and traditional values. No to that.

Venus is Retrograde in Libra at 27 degrees, conjunct Dwarf Planet Ceres opposite URANUS at the High Noon position of 29 degrees Aries and squaring the North Node at 29 CANCER.

This is a very powerful configuration. Venus = women, values, finance, relationships. In her Retrograde phase, Venus is going through a powerful death and rebirth to regain her powers. Venus’s tale of disappearance for 40 days was told in myth by one of the most ancient poems from Mesopotamia, the tale of Inanna, Queen of Heaven, going into the Underworld to visit her dark sister who is bereaved. Inanna was the goddess of love, beauty, sex, desire, fertility, war, justice and political power. Inanna’s consort Dumuzzi who she left on the throne is not mourning his Queen while she is gone. Inanna successfully returns to the Dayworld and to her throne and throws Dumuzzi out, disempowering his arrogance.

CERES is DEMETER in Greek myths and her daughter Persephone was raped into the Underworld by Pluto. When Ceres couldn’t find her daughter her grief and rage did not allow anything to grow on the earth. Eventually, Zeus {Jupiter} steps in and bargains a deal so that Persephone lives every summer with her mother and every winter with her husband Pluto. The very obvious symbolism here of balance being established.

URANUS opposite Venus is a women’s revolution very literally, for their freedom  in public positions of power will rock the establishment. 

North Node enters Cancer today.

The North Node is the highest evolutionary direction, now in Cancer today! The sign of the Mother, women, emotional security, children and food. The U.S. is a Cancerian country. Women’s values, protection of children from trafficking and abuse and women choosing what makes them feel emotionally safe is the current highest direction. Although Trump is waging a good campaign against sex and child trafficking, ignoring women’s sexual abuse issues in the Kavanaugh nomination is most likely a Republican party’s downfall in this election. They will lose many many seats and lots of power and control.

The anger at sexual abuse issues, in general, triggered by Ford’s testimony whether it was true or not, is a tipping point in the return of the Goddess in women’s power. Women’s experiences of being constantly sexually abused not being recognized means women will not support any Patriarchal anything anymore.

CHIRON the Wounded Healer is in a GRAND WATER TRINE

At the 29th degree of Pisces the most karmic degree of our collective soul wounds trining Jupiter Lord of benefits, expansion, and faith, trines the North Node in Cancer.

Water Trines are super feminine emotional energy and Jupiter expands the fever, it will be running high. Women are the wounded ones; ignored, victims, martyrs, given the short end of the stick by the Law. We need to uphold and follow feminine values of compassion for all.

JUNO the Goddess Asteroid of Feminine Genius at 27 TAURUS forms a Finger of God with CHIRON in PISCES and VENUS and CERES in LIBRA

This is another very powerful esoteric symbol of the DIVINE FEMININE exerting resources, values and power { Taurus} and healing itself of its wounds by achieving Justice, the scales of Libra and attempting to rebalance power.

The Sabian Symbol for the 30th degree of CANCER?

A DAUGHTER OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION- you can’t make this stuff up.

The Traditional symbol refers to upholding tradition to my mind this alludes to a new inclusive revolution by women created by them.
