Iced over in Toronto, MERRY CHRISTMAS, Happy Holidays from Tara Greene

Wow its been an incredible few days in Toronto. Mother Nature iced over Toronto and surrounding area and parts of the Eastern U.S. as well. Some are still without power and heat. I had hydro but no Internet or phone.

my ACE OF CUPS CARD OF the DAY 

also a GRAND WATER TRINE is in effect

I think its one of the worst and most beautiful storms we’ve ever seen. The storm destroyed hundreds of trees splitting many of them right down the middle. Falling from the weight of the ice , the branches blocked roads and knocked down power lines created a chilly blackout for more than 300,000 people in the Toronto GTA. Many  thousands of people are still without power over 40 hours later and temperatures are dropping into the low 20’s Fahrenheit.

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford won’t call it a state of emergency as the Transit systems are now moving. But the elderly are left in the dark with no heat. Some shelters are open and families are huddling together at places where there is power. Individuals are opening their doors to strangers and friends.

It was strange driving out on Sunday Dec 22 after the storm, It was so beautiful, but there were no traffic lights at any intersections and all the city was dark.. At the one shopping mall we went to in the East side of the city, people were sitting on the floor with their laptops and charging phones.

MERRY CHRISTMAS  Lets check out what the Christmas Astrology Cosmic weather is

Note this is set for Bethlehem Israel

Christmas Astrology Tara Greene

The CARDINAL Grand Cross is in effect!

NOTE the planets will remain in this aspect in to the New Year.

JAN 1st 2014 New Moon packs a particularly prophetic punch. Will write about that soon.  there will be a new AULD LANG SYNE.

THE SUN conjunct Mercury is also conjunct to Pluto. The POPE will make a historical speech.

I’m also feeling this as many spirits who have passed on are much easier to connect with. I am particularly tuning into Cory Monteith, the young Canadian Glee star who tragically passed away last summer. Also your dreams will be intense. Talk about LIVING COLOR. Also tuning into famous people, people with power, prestige. I had a lucid dream with Justin Bieber last night. He was wearing white, dressed casually in his house, he was very polite. We said we’d speak again. He’s just a 19 year old kid with too much money, fame and not enough edumacation as Homer Simpson would say.

Mercury at the critical last degree of Sagittarius- get your truth out.

Mercury enters Capricorn at 2:12 am PST. December 24

Your energy may feel bi-polar. WHOOPY cushion weather with Mars opposite Uranus. Pluto opposite Jupiter Retro  in Cancer.

Mars opposite Uranus creates crazy weather patterns. Expect upsets in travel plans pre, during and after Xmas. Dangers from electrical explosions, lightning, storms, tornadoes etc. Accidental shootings, unexpected chaos. Stay cool and mindful.

Do be careful with knives, candles, where you sit, choking on food, food poisoning and the like.

The VIRGO Moon is opposite CHIRON in PISCES.

Here is grand opportunity to walk your talk by not criticizing everything. Perfection doesn’t exist on the earth plane.

Try forgiving and forgetting this once and forever.

A lovely GRAND WATER TRINE between Jupiter Saturn and Chiron eases things up a bit.

Have a safe happy joyful Christmas and HOLIDAY SEASON.

New years Eve, Times Square,Astrology forecast from Tara Greene

The last minute of 2011

New years Eve Astrology

just click on the image to see larger
 
I am in the Fortune Telling business. I take my work very seriously.
 
So, NEW Year’s Eve is a time for forgiveness, the scapegoat was let loose and everyone’s past transgressions, debts for seven years, old unfinished business was wrapped up for a new beginning. Singing Auld Lang Syne, etc, is  a tradition for New year.
 
So what’s this New year’s Eve look like? Well Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin here’s a head’s up.
 
WISHING YOU ALL A VERY HAPPY HEALTHY PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR!
 
I cast this Horoscope chart for the last minute of 2011.
 
In summary, a stay at home and allow the shadows out in PRIVATE what with the SUN, the ego/identity is at the very bottom of the chart, in Capricorn on the I.C. the cusp of the 4th house which symbolizes home, privacy, emotional security, and with Pluto only 3 degrees away from the sun bracketing that 4th house, that’s a POWER PACKED atomic connection. Pluto the Lord of Rebirth, shows a potential powerhouse of vitality, volcanic explosive energy, rejuvenation.
 
PLUTO is SQUARING THE MOON
Trying to keep the secrets in the closet? g Yah right. Good luck. All closets will be opened and aired out tonight. Very powerful, power trips, the wolf in sheep’s clothing aspect.
 
THE MOOD, ENERGIZED!
The Moon symbolizing the PEOPLE, in all mundane charts, is the emotional pulse, the instinctual drive, the feelings, especially of women.
MOON is in ARIES, the 1st sign, the spiritual fire which engenders all New Life, renewal. The warrior sign, Moon is all sitting on the DC, the descendant, the 7th house cusp. Yes, when the Moon is in the 7th house and Jupiter aligns with MARS indeed!
The Dawning of the Age of Aquarius couldn’t be more appropriate and prophetic a song.
Moon on the 7th house cusp of marriage, relationships, and all “others.” indicates a highly revved up, action packed, potentially emotionally confrontational, potentially explosive and dangerous, martial toned, get your dukes up, New years Eve. Moon and Sun are Square to each other.
 
OVERALL MOOD- poised, tasteful, artistic,LIBRA ASCENDANT
The persona for the New Year is LIBRA sign of balance. people will be acting on their best most poised for the most part.
 
COMMUNICATIONS- chatty, good-humoured, optimistic
Mercury in Sagittarius in the 3rd house promises to be honest to a fault, lost of hoof in mouth oopsies, lots of chat, inspiring tall tales, some soap box, preaching too.
LOVE INDEX- freedom,weird, unexpected,expect the unexpected.
With Venus in Aquarius in the 5th house of LOVE AFFAIRS. 
Love the one you’re with is the theme song.
The evening promises to be weird, wild, wired and wacky. Much group consciousness, Aquarian, radical,  individualized, revolutionary. Try to remember those brilliant ideas,and the big picture inspiration you get.
 
The MEN- in the backroom,chatting and being critical,betting? taking care of business, coming out of the closet…
MARS the God of all things Masculine is in Virgo in the 12th house
the Sign of perfectionists, accountants, control freaks, and critics. Make sure everything is perfect or else you will hear about it, especially as alcohol loosens them up. The guys will be business minded, earthy, and may get very melancholy.
Mars is Squaring Mercury-
Maybe a lot of gossiping, criticizing. Be careful to watch your mouth, or pay later.
 
THE SPIRITS ,VERY HIGH and SENSUAL
JUPITER planet of Optimism, good humour, plenty, risk-taking, inspiration,adventure, truth, the James Bond type of planet is at Zero degrees of  earthy, sensual, Taurus in the 7th house of marriage and committed relationships.
The party needs to be a big feast for the eye ear, olfactory, all senses. Jupiter in Taurus is  bacchanal,an orgiastic, Dionysian type of party.
Make sure you have excellent food and fine wine.
 
SIDENOTE: *LILLITH conjunct Jupiter
The shadow Goddess, the forgotten one, the scorned one, the original woman before Eve, similar to KALI, is symbolized by an asteroid. There is a complexity around Lillith for the sake of simplicity let’s just note that she s at 1 degree of Taurus conjunct Jupiter.
Lillith refused to be used as a sexual/inhuman way by Adam. She refused to subject Herself to  his patriarchal treatment and left Paradise voluntarily. For refusing to reconcile at all, she was demonized, as a harpy, a demoness, a child-killer. Lillith in the Old Testament represents the original religion of Gossess worship and the transition to Patriarchy. Lillith is men’s greatest and deepest darkest secret fear. Which is their own fear of being vulnerable, or being rejected and abandoned by the Feminine, of being unable to control her own power, her self-esteem,her original wild independent and self-contained,side. For without women’s love,co-operation, all is death. The Hindus and the Tibetans honour the dark feminine Goddess,She who brings death as well as Life. She who is all powerful, She who is Nature. OK.
 What she symbolizes here is an expansion of the independent feminine energy who refuses to allow herself to be a Man Toy. So guys better treat your date right or she will walk out on you and leave you flat tonight.
 
FORMAT -balance, good taste, traditional,being the perfect host, fashion
Saturn in Libra in the 1st house symbolizes a conservative structure.
Formalizing, martinis, whiskey, a historical feel. Saturn is exalted in Libra so being the perfect host/hostess is tantamount. Making your guests feel comfortable is your purpose. A lot of checking out what others are wearing, smell like, drinking, fashionistas on parade tonight.
 
Saturn is opposite Jupiter-play hard, work hard
This represents a cycle which began 14-15 years ago and longer if you are older, 28-29 years ago. Auld Lang Syne indeed. This can indicate old flames appearing. Major karmic choices being decided on.
 
I’ll stop there, as enuf said for now.
The way we leave a year is also the way we begin the Next. All deaths are rebirths. All ends are new beginnings.  So this chart also symbolizes the New year. Nothing major will change in one minute.
 
Use this chart as a reference point for your own natal horsoscope.
 
I will comment about each sign for 2012 shortly.
