Virgo, detail time

Virgo season is here, already. The earthy, practical, mutable 6th sign is the sign of the Virgin Mother, Ceres, who is pictured on the Constellation holding a sheaf of wheat or corn from the Ancient Eleusinian mysteries. Virgo is also the largest Constellation but we all known Constellations have nothing to do with Astrology signs in modern astrology.

Virgo is the sign ruling Health, harvesting the fruits of the earth, servants traditionally and being of service, a very powerful topic these days especially when Prince Harry stated it so perfectly. “We can all live a life of service. Service is universal.” Virgo is humility, hard work, accountability, criticism, and perfectionism. Virgo also rules pets and community.

The 6th sign is known for Virgoian accountability, order, mental discipline,  the go to’s for how to do anything to perfection, how to get your shit together, be punctual, organized, balance the budget, stay healthy, steward the earth, and be HUMBLE- Virgo is anti Selfie.  Virgo can also tend to be O.C.D.’s and the master’s of self- criticism. Virgo works hard and loves to be of service. They are usually health conscious and need to be disciplined with their diets as they tend to have upper digestive issues. They can be hypochondriacs too. Their fear of never being perfect enough and neither is anyone else can prevent them from having relationships.

Virgo is all about the Harvest. It’s time to reap what you have sown on all levels.

IN The TAROT VIRGO is Tarot Major Arcana #9 THE HERMIT

Everyone has Virgo somewhere in their astrology chart. Check out which house or houses Virgo rules in your natal chart.

Are you a Virgo? Do, or have planets in Virgo?  Virgo is mutable earth. There’s a whole generation of you with Pluto in Virgo. If you were born August 19, 1957 – October 5, 1971 and  April 17, 1972 –  July 30 1972 you are part of that ecological generation.

Virgo’s love to question, and analyze it’s their keyword. They are analyzers and organizers of life’s details. Like Gemini’s they are ruled by Mercury newly direct.

MERCURY Virgo’s ruling sign is travelling in its home sign August 11- August 29

Mars is also in Virgo July 29 until September 14. Things will be triply Virgo.

Virgo Season

The 6th sign has 6 keywords and questions for all of you as Jupiter in Virgo is magnifying these issues. Now do your homework

  1. Simplicity- How can you simplify your life?

Yes we’re all waaaaay too busy these days. Zen-like simplicity keeps mind-body and spirit clear. A Virgo’s dream is de-cluttering 24/7.

2.  Organization and Analysis

Is your life a big mess of clutter that is if you’re not a Virgo.?  

3.  WORK

are you happy with what you do or is it just a job?

4.  Devotion to service to others and Self-

How much of that have you done lately? And how much do you serve your self?

5.  Allowing oneself and others to be imperfect

Virgo’s always have an incessant inner critic in their heads. You are usually your own worst enemy because of your you and everyone else is never good enough. Here’s a brilliant piece of advice someone told me.  Just say “thanks for sharing” to your inner critic and go one being free to be.

6. Harvesting and health

What have you harvested in your life? What do you want to harvest?  Goal plan for what you want to harvest on any level.

Mars in Leo, action, fire, passion, war

Mars in Leo June 11 until July 29/30

MARS, the War God, the testosterone-driven red planet enters the FIxed Fire and 5th sign, of pride, leadership, fun loving, drama QUEENS, passionate LEO the Lion, and its Time to roar.

Temperatures will rise literally too, while Mars is in Leo so expect very hot early summer in the Northern Hemisphere and lost of fired.

Mars has been waterlogged and swimming to keep his head above water in Cancer since April 23 which seems like aeons ago. Have you learned to love your soft underbelly while Mars was in Cancer?  How has your tummy been? Mars does not do well in ultra nurturing Cancer, but he is the wounded warrior who came home to take off his armour and allow himself to be nurtured and to nurture just like Prince Harry was doing in his Mental Health special The Me You Don’t See with Oprah at the same time. Mars in Cancer is passive/aggressive. But that’s all over now.

The Macho planet of testosterone, war, passion and desire action and defensiveness is bringing sexy Leonine energy back. It’s courageous, loves to party and dance, wear red be the center of attention, daring, and bold. There will be lots of  drama, HOT passion, battles of wills, energy to burn, big-hearted, and LUSTY. 

Mars likes living dangerously. DO be extra carefull around BBQ’s campfires, and and dangerous flammable liquids. Not to mention guns or any sharp weapons, knives.

DANGER of explosions, volcanic ones, forest fires, bombings, knife attacks, angry crowds and general rage.

There is a danger of wars and battles being ignited during this time in the world. Venus enters LEO too June 27 to bring some peaceful balancing hopefully. The battles will be for love or war or both, some couples like fighting then making love.

LEO is #8 or #11 in the Tarot is STRENGTH/ LUST

In the Tarot the card #8 or #11 is STRENGTH and clearly LEO. The woman is always holding the jaws of the lion open controlling his animal instincts. In the Thoth tarot the card of Strength is called LUST and BABYLON the scarlet woman is riding the lion, she is one with and controls her passions and desires. A different take. Lust for power will be on full display. This is dangerous in the world right now. 

When Mars travels through a sign it ignites it. While Mars is in Leo It’s your time Leo’s with Mars in Leo everyone adores you even more than usual. YAY! Be the King and Queen.

All Leo Planets in your natal chart will demand the Royal Treatment.

LEO’s it’s your time to keep shining.  Everyone loves charismatic Leo’s.

ARIES and SCORPIO get to be center stage too with your ruling planet Mars in LEO.

NOTE VENUS follows mars into Leo June 26/27 and meets up with MARS in a SACRED MARRIAGE CEREMONY on JUNE 13 at 19+ LEO.

I am creating a ZOOM workshop  for July 11 at 7:30 pm MARK that date on your calendars and Stay tuned for that.

Drama Queens and Kings take your places on the stage. Sexy Queens and Kings.  Mars roaring through the “I WILL” heats up broils, bakes, BBQ’s your passions. 

Got to love those Regal Leo’s with their big manes, perfect white teeth, movie star good looks.  The Royal folks, to the manner born, have charisma to burn. Your self-esteem will be stronger, you need to embody that lion-like strut. The world is your stage.

Run and find where LEO is in your chart. That’s where you will be a Prima Donna or Primidone for the next few weeks.

The 5th sign and the natural 5th house is also where your inner child plays, so let that little kid out. Lighten up and Role PLAY. The 5th house is also the house of love affairs. Sex is an art form for Mars in Leo peeps, and they will treat you like a King or Queen and insist on being treated that way too.

Leo rules the Heart.

Wear your heart on your sleeve. Be generous. Be creative, this is the self- expressive sign. Make art. Buy art.

The 2nd Fixed Sign Leo’s downside is pride, vanity, power games, big players.

Who has MARS IN LEO? some ridiculously hot celebrities?

George Clooney, Ben Affleck, Colin Farrell, Davis Duchovny, Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin fame. ” A whole lotta love,” the Leo mane.  Paul McCartney, Harrison Ford, Donald Trump-wears an orange man rug. Patrick Stewart,  Robert Redford, James Dean, Gary Cooper, Frank Sinatra.

July 20, Enter the King, Cardinal Square, talking heads

I’m skipping ahead a day because you really need to know the cosmic news in advance. 

CARDINAL SQUARE THROWBACK THURSDAY 

Yes, it will be a throwback as we get another CARDINAL SQUARE between the SUN in CANCER squaring URANUS in ARIES At 28+ degrees this aspect may bring shock and chaos into your very home. Watch out for unexpected emotional outbursts and weird quirky reactions from people you thought you knew on the personal level. On the big picture expect thunderstorms, flooding, electrical outages, explosions, Terrorist attacks on civilians, and problems with computers. Countries may want to break away and be free from tyranny. We are seeing this just announced in Ukraine.

Sun in Cancer is the sign of the mother, the old-fashioned women at home, just having babies. Uranus’s energy is provoking freedom for women world-wide. Recent Female Genital Mutilation cases are rising alarmingly in Europe as refugees from Somali, Africa and Muslim countries have flocked in. In Britain, one party is calling for girls to be routinely inspected annually by nurses or doctors to protect them and to arrest family members who willingly allow this ancient ritual. Millions of women world wide are subject to the butchering of their clitoris, either being totally or partly removed, their labias being cut and their genitalia being sewn shut. The ritual is performed usually by female family member onto very young girls using unsterilized razor blades. Many girls die from this procedure. This crude misogyny indoctrinated into ancient belief systems must end now. 

GEMINI TWIN MOON

MARS ENTERS LEO – the KINGDOM comes until September 5

THE SUN KING LOUIS XIV

MARS is very happy in Fire SIGN Leo.  Mars in LEO struts his stuff big time. For the next 7  weeks, pride, courage, daring, passion, DRAMA, showmanship, charisma, machismo, and starring in your role on the stage of life where the action is. The mood will be hot with lots of fun, partying and DRAMA.  Take up tango lessons, drama, and public speaking. Develop your courage, be fearless in the flames. This is the time to up your game and show the world what you got. 

Leo is a Fixed Fire sign and rules the heart. It’s very important to pay attention to what the heart truly wants. If you are not doing what your heart wants then you will be prone to have a heart attack especially under this energy and more so if you are a LEO Sun sign.

Leo is the sign of the child, and this can be a good time to get pregnant or to have happy, fun, playful times with your children or your partner. Let your inner child out to play. Children love to play dress up and act out roles, another apect of LEO is creative self-expression. EXPRESS YOURSELF.

People will also be much more aggressive and vocal because everyone wants to be king or Queen of their own domains. Like we need more of this? The word SOVEREIGN is the New Age keyword this year and it accurately describes this. You want fame and fortune, to go for the gold, run the world, have endless bling, and boss everyone else around.  Guess who has MARS in LEO? His initials are D.T. and he rules over a little country called the U.S. A.

Cheating LOVE is a DEATH SENTENCE:

VENUS and PLUTO in CAPRICORN inconjunct in p.m.

Venus inconjunct Pluto, astrology, horoscopes, Tara Greene

Venus in GEMINI is a two timing lover and her inconjunct to PLUTO LORD of the UNDERWORLD can make that little white lie be the death of any long-term relationship.  Don’t overextend yourself with trying to do too many things at once if you aren’t willing to pay the price. Both of these planets rule money, the economy, corporations and big governments and the two factions are not speaking the same language. We see this in the Fall of the Republicans repealed Health care bill. Watch the markets for a big correction.

Women hating women, Beyonce, Goddesses, birth

Having a baby isn’t a miracle and doesn’t make you a goddess

Oh God, there was nothing more unsexy than disrobing on set when I had a seven-month belly protruding out.”

That was Katherine Heigl describing her experience shooting a scene from her new television show “Doubt” while she was very pregnant. “At one point,” she recalls, “I’m coming out of the bathroom wrapped in a towel, and we had a teasing moment, and then I dropped it. And I just couldn’t help myself — I burst out laughing.”

Which is probably how most people would have reacted to Beyoncé’s routine at Sunday night’s Grammy Awards — if she weren’t Beyoncé. As Heigl notes, “I know that pregnancy is beautiful in so many ways, but it’s sort of more beautiful between you and your husband, who has to think you’re beautiful.” Well, Beyoncé has never known when to draw the line between what she should share with her husband and what she should share with an audience — see her chair-straddling, tush-wiggling routine from 2014, for instance. But there was another message from her endless Virgin Mary/Sun Goddess routine: Pregnancy is sexy. Motherhood is divine.

Beyoncé’s performance was introduced by her own mother, who seemed appropriately proud. But what happened after that was some kind of pagan fertility worship ceremony. Why is it that in an era where women are constantly insisting that they should not be defined by their traditional, biological roles we have fetishized motherhood to such an extent?

Adele’s words at the Grammys about motherhood weren’t as glamorous as Beyoncé’s but they were similarly self-indulgent. “In my pregnancy and through becoming a mother I lost a lot of myself. And I’ve struggled, and I still do struggle being a mom. It’s really hard. But tonight winning this kind of feels full-circle and like a bit of me has come back to myself.”

There are reports that Adele struggled with postpartum depression after giving birth, but the idea that a woman who is known to millions by only her first name has “lost” herself by becoming a mother seems a little far-fetched. When most mothers say this, they mean that they have had to scale back their professional life or that they spend their days at home changing diapers. But Adele is presumably waxing philosophical here and wants to tell us motherhood is sooooo hard. Oh, please.

Don’t get me wrong. There are people for whom motherhood is hard. There are mothers out there whose children suffer from chronic health problems. There are mothers whose children have died.

There are mothers who are struggling to get by — and I don’t mean struggling to juggle the demands of marriage and family and careers. I mean there are mothers who have trouble making ends meet and have no husbands or extended families on whom they can depend. There are mothers who foster or adopt children who have previously been mistreated or neglected.

But these are not the mothers who give speeches about how they are lost. They don’t write blog posts about the juggle. They may complain, but it’s not about how hard it is to be a mother in some abstract way. It’s about how hard yesterday was.

Our cultural imperative to elevate motherhood to both the most important thing in the world and the hardest thing in the world is getting out of control. A pregnant woman recently wrote into Slate’s Dear Prudence column explaining that her sister, who is also pregnant, didn’t want to be “upstaged” by her sibling at a baby shower. Oh, come on. Whether or not you’re a celebrity, motherhood is not a theatrical event.

After giving birth in 2015, Kerry Washington said, “My body is the site of a miracle now.” Far be it from me to tell the actress exactly what qualifies as a miracle, but even the most religious women I know do not walk around with the attitude that they are supposed to be worshiped (by anyone besides their husbands) because they have given birth.

In fact, what these women seem to know is that having children is natural and a blessing and that these beings that come out of us are sometimes the source of great joy and sometimes deep sadness. And they also know that in an earlier time, good mothers were admired and praised without wearing golden costumes or whining to millions about their hardships.

In an interview about motherhood last year, Zooey Deschanel told Redbook: “I think it’s a huge accomplishment to have a child.” It’s not. Millions of women have been giving birth for millions of years. It’s an accomplishment to raise a child well. So maybe Adele and Beyoncé can check back in with us in, say, 20 years.”

FILED UNDER

This is disgusting women haters hating on women. Yes that’s just what we need more of. A New York Post article where some women hates on Beyonce for appearing as a gloriously beautiful pregnant Goddess of fertility. Beyonce is a very important cultural icon and she is proud and beautiful and every woman is a Goddess when she is pregnant and should be celebrated as such. In a world that loves life and cares for the future, life continuing itself is a miracle. Women are privileged to embody the creative Process directly.Men are accessories to this and they know it. Every person alive knows that their Mother is the Goddess and the Universe. And if you don’t know that you are so screwed up as to not even really be alive to the miracle that is life itself. The woman who wrote this hate filled ignorant article should be fired.

Post full moon, Cocky Chinese Fire Rooster year

This full Moon Grand Cardinal cross is making me feel very tired. Plus that sweet Venus-Neptune conjunction is calling me to dreamland. I don’t know about you. 

The Moon enters LEO Jan 12 later in the afternoon. Mercury re-enters serious Capricorn. Your words must bear weight and gravitas. Walk your talk.

Leo Moon inconjuncts Mercury soon 

Ego battles abound. Don’t take any of it too seriously.

I just looked ahead through 2017 and went OY SATURN enters HIS OWN HOUSE on Dec 19 two days before Winter Solstice. Yikes. Better get yer yah yah’s on now with Saturn in an upbeat positive, good-humored sign. Saturn in SAGITTARIUS insists on honesty, justice, inspiration, truth. The next 2.5 years 2018-2020 ish with Saturn in his own sign will be HARD. Difficult, entrenched, power battles, conservative, testing. It will be because “i say it is.” Life will be a test on every level. Life may be a  struggle for the bare necessities.

So enjoy the NOW, it isn’t all that pretty I know on many levels. Stay optimistic. 

The CHINESE FIRE ROOSTER YEAR begins on the New Moon in Aquarius on the 27/28th in Beijing and celebrations continue for over a week.

If you were born in 2005, 1993, 1981, 1969, 1957, 1945, you were born in a Rooster year. The last FIRE Element rooster year was in 1957. 

By crowing daily at dawn. Rooster is a herald, who chases away evil spirits. The Chinese pay the rooster much respect. He is considered to be the mascot of the five virtues- civil responsibility, marital fidelity, courage kindness, and confidence. 

Roosters are considered to be psychic birds. According to Chinese astrology, the constellation Orion has a Rooster companion that communicates messages to the Gods.  Rooster divination (Alectryomancy – also called alectoromancy or alectoromancy) evolved by watching which grains a rooster pecked, timing, order etc. 

Rooster’s powerful voices symbolizes the ability we all have to be proud and to crow our message. Don’t be shy about speaking out for what is important to you this year. 

Various traditions regard Rooster’s in high regard. The rooster’s spirit draws good luck, prosperity and overall health to both you and your situation or projects.

This is a strong willed independent cocky year. Roosters are proud, hard working, controlling, punctual, and responsible. They are fiercely competitive. Very much like Donald Trump who isn’t a rooster but a Fire element dog, he looks like one and acts like one. 

The Rooster is associated with the SUN, this is a year to stay positive, stay organized  on time and crow your message. 

THE LUCKIEST THINGS FOR ROOSTER 

Numbers: 5, 7 and  8. The 4th and 26th days of a Chinese lunar month. 

Lucky colors,  Gold, brown and yellow.  

Favorable Directions: South, South-West.Favorable months are the2nd, 5th and 11th Chinese lunar months

Favorable months are the2nd, 5th and 11th Chinese lunar months, these differ from western sun based calendar months. 

ROOSTERS SHOULD AVOID

Red which is usually the luckiest color is not good for Roosters.  Don’t bet on these numbers 1,3 and 9. Avoid the EAST. Unlucky months the 3rd, 9th and 12th lunar months. 

The characteristics of Fire Roosters will dominate the Chinese New year. People and fire roosters are short-tempered and demand punctuality. Don’t snooze or be lazy or you will loose. 

This can be a wealth-oriented year. A year to accumulate beautiful things and to strut around showing off your accumulated wealth. Fire roosters are lucky and invest money well. 

Fire roosters get benefits in middle age. They thrive on challenges, they have goals and will work to overcome difficulties to get to their goals. They like competition and thrive on it. 

In love and passion fire rooster have rich colorful emotional lives. They like to have many partners. They like domineering others and controlling situations. Arguments can start easily and quickly escalate out of control. They are very proud of those they love.

No matter what Chinese animal you are you can benefit from tapping into Rooster characteristics. Being clear, independent, capable, having self- respect, and being quick minded are all positive traits. Avoid turning these qualities into negatives like impatience, criticism, eccentricity, narrowmindedness, and selfishness.  Roosters are always busy. This is a year to make sure you have clear goals, avoid laziness, depression, avoidance, numbing out and feeling like you don’t have the energy to finish goals. 

Red is the color to use for FIRE but in small doses. The supporting color to red is green, the color of nature, and new beginnings. Spending time in nature is important this year as well as eating a natural diet. Earthing and breathing in nature and listening to nature sounds is recommended.

Check the feng shui in your house for Chinese New Year. There are many excellent sites online. Read up on Chinese customs. The majority of people in the year will be celebrating the Zodiac zign of the Rooster on Jan 28. There will be dragon parades in major cities, San Francisco, there is one in Toronto and I am sure in Vancouver as well as Beijing and throughout all cities in China.

My mother used to collect Chicken and rooster figurines. I still have her collection. I will have to dust them off and bring them out. 

wishing you a happy everything

Lilith in Scorpio, sex, power,Dark Goddess rises

Lilith enters SCORPIO May 22, 2016 and she will remain in the 8th sign of sex, money ,power, depth psychology, the shadows and the most soulful ,transformative of signs, in Her Queendom until February 14, 2017. This is a game changer. It feels right to me that she she co-rules SCORPIO, the territory to which she is famous for, along with Mars and Pluto. It is a good Trinity.

It will be intense and emotionally obsessive with many power struggles between men and women as women storm the world’s stage to take back their power. Yes, Hillary Clinton is  a massive Scorpio, this can empower her or take her down as her secrets are revealed.  

The abuse of woman and the earth must stop.  The Lilith shadow will be reclaimed. Women have all the power and always have had it. They can control the world through their bodies, through refusing to co-operate. by being unavailable, by stopping to support anything which debases them or the earth. Lilith would be willing to co-habit the Garden if she is given her due. 

Lilith original woman Art Napoleon Brousseau

                    Lilith and snakes painting by Napoleon Brousseau

The Black MOON LILITH is the apogee, the Moon’s shadow in its path around the earth. She is opposite the Fertile Full Moon, the nurturing mother . She is synonymous with the dark, mysterious hidden magical cauldron of rebirth, the void, vagina, menstruation, the womb and the tomb. She is the origin of everything and everyone. From Her body we are conceived in and to Her we return. Originally she was the image of the Great Goddess who birthed all in her trinity as Maiden, Mother, Crone. 

LILITH, I can feel her desire energy, her will, her passion, her strength, her call of freedom over everything else, her erotic joy, her absolute unwillingness to compromise unless she is treated her proper due equality. She has been yelling “FUCK THE PATRIARCHY!” in my ear. 

She is whole and complete unto herself. She is free and wild and she is Woman’s original nature.

She is the DARK QUEEN of Death, she rules Menstruation, a necessary part of the Life cycle.  She contains and creates the greatest TANTRIC sex mysteries. Her sacred Blood is the magical elixir of healing and immortality and total transformation. She is darkly beautiful and mysterious. Her true nature is hidden, she is sacred treasure chest of black jewels or rubies and red sapphires and garnets. She is the Life Giver in the guise of Death. She teaches the Eleusinian mysteries.  She is the Holy Grail. She is the Temptress to those that do not honor Her power. She is sexually stronger than any man, her desire is endless.

For a man who honors Her and reveres her she gives him bliss and Holiness embodied, he gets to touch heaven and earth and to feel and to be inside of the Great Mystery of Her. She is like KALI, Dark Mother whose desire for transcendence is indefatigable. She kills the ego, and eats the entrails.

In the beginning of the Patriarchy 5,000 years ago. When she left the Garden of Eden because she refused to be  sexually dominated by Adam. LILITH had all the power. Adam was left alone and helpless, no life could continue without LILITH’S willingness to accept him. It was then that Man- Abraham decided to change the rules. He set himself up, made himself the God, usurping her power as the Goddess the Creatress, so that he wouldn’t have to feel weak, rejected, alone, impotent and vulnerable. That is the REAL SHADOW of Lilith. Every man knows his Mother birthed him. Every woman too. Each one of us owes our lives to a GODDESS woman.

Man decided to take a phony power of revenge control and blame and call it religion and made up a Book called The Bible and blame everything onto woman and punish her because he was so afraid. The Goddess is immortal and she never changes. Man had changed. The Patriarchy blamed, lied manipulated, controlled, tortured, sold and shamed, raped and shat on and destroyed willingly every woman and girl and everything that was beautiful, the love of life and the earth herself and is continuing to do so. He has done this to himself to of course.

The shadow of domination is fear and helplessness. Anyone who needs to dominate has no real power. The Feminine nurtures, on her own terms and all of life flourishes.  The most powerful part of woman is that shadow women who sees in the dark, she is shamanka, witch, spell caster for only good, knower of dreamworlds, herbs, the mysteries of birth, the cycles of the moon, She is in touch with it all. 

Lilith’s shadow has been repressed for 5,000 years. But the Goddess is Returning, as she is in her own cycles of ebb and flow and billions of women are feeling her power and remembering that she has always been living in their souls. 

In SCORPIO she will rise up through everyone’s subconscious, in everyone’s dreams in every sexual act. She will be there. 

The more Lilith is repressed the more the dark side is acted out. She is not a temptress.Only if you fear your own sexuality your own instincts do you project devilish childish blame images.  Sexuality is the most spiritual power on earth, When approached in the right way, as a spiritual physical union of equals and you know how to control the sexual energies then two become one. Worlds can be created in mutual cosmic orgasms. Men don’t have a clue as to what they  have been missing. The Masculine always serves supports and defends the Feminine.

Lilith in Scorpio for the next 9 months, a pregnancy cycle, will see women getting stronger, fighting for their rights to have free abortions,autonomy,  be liberated and freed from this Patriarchal enslavement. The Greek play Lysistrata where women go on a sex strike to get  the men to stop warring, is something that women will be using very powerfully in the next 9 months. 

Lilith women are never afraid to be alone, they don’t need or depend on a partner to be fulfilled. This is a huge lesson for many women. A Lilith empowered woman would never uses sex to manipulate although that is what the lower form of Scorpio energy is about. 

Scorpio has three levels.

 SCORPIO on the lower vibration is the SCORPION STING itself. This suppression brings out the unconscious desire to manipulate others with sex,power, manipulation and money. This is the unconscious  shadow, where one is into debauchery, S & M, pornography,cruelty, sex addicts, criminals, vices, hatred, revenge,  prostitution, debasement, lack of self-respect. Playing with death through dangerous things, Suicide as an emotional manipulator, being ruthless, selfish, narcissistic, cunning,  come from suppressing Lilith energy to the greatest degree. Black Magic, hexing, curses, necrophilia, sexual slavery, torture, all perversions and fetishes are all parts of this energy. 

The EAGLE LEVEL the middle level.

Lilith energy gets turned inwards. The other side of the abuser is the victim. She gets dumped on and is hated. Seen as the Scarlet woman. She can be the victim of violence, rape, emotional abuse, kidnapped. The sad victim story. She is attracted to criminals, drugs, debauchery, self-inflicted wounds, women’s issues, sexual diseases and problems, to many abortions, too much sex with men who have no heart connection and no respect for her, this weakens her more. 

The PHOENIX LEVEL- the transcendant level. 

Here Liliths’ energy once integrated as a necessary part of Life brings a woman wisdom. She, like Hekate can see in all directions. Her intuition is strong, her dreaming ability acute. She never apologises for her actions. She is powerful and healthy in a naturally feminine way. She has made friends with Lilith as her daemon, her angel. She is not tempted or seduced by anyone. She laughs at those who try to fool her. She never needs to get anyone’s approval or live up to society’s standards she doesn’t want to belong to any clubs.

She used her power to heal those who respect her. She attracts a partner who loves honors and respects her strengths. She can use her power to defend woman, children and the earth from harm. She speaks out against abuses of women in religion, in culture and in any way that hampers womans equality in the world.  She refuses to be taken advantage of. She has strong healthy boundaries. 

Use this time to get to know Lilith for yourself. Women have a lot of work to do. There are some good books, poems, and artwork. Lilith works best with you in meditation or in dreams. Call on her to work with you and teach you how to be whole and complete.

Men also need to change their attitude towards women and honor them as equals and learn to be happy being vulnerable that is where real masculine strength is. Otherwise a man will never know intimacy. 

I will write another article on Lilith in Scorpio and how she affects each sign and placement.

Super Bowl 50 Astrology by Tara Greene

Yes its the 50th Super Bowl Sunday in the Golden Gate City.  

SUPER BOWL 50 Astrology Tara Greene

My predictions: It will be a brutal fight to the death as the Sun squares the warrior planet MARS in his strength in his home sign of SCORPIO. 

SYNCHRONICITY: As above so below:

Just added to the lineup at Halftime : Bruno MARS of course.

BEYONCE- as planet Venus and COLDPLAY will be performing.

Venus will be sextiling Mars from Capricorn at 10 degrees  to Mars 15th- the most powerful degrees.

More women will be watching the Super Bowl this year or at least half-time.

I am not a sports fan at all so I will venture my prediction based on Astrology and intuition.

The Denver Broncos were born August 14, 1959,  a LEO Sun sign

The Carolina Panthers are a Sagittarius team founded December 15 1987. 

Two fire signs face off while the Sun and Moon are in Airy Aquarius on Super Bowl Sunday faning the fires. 

THE CAROLINA PANTHERS

Carolina_Panthers_logo.svg

The Panthers have their natal Sun at 22 degrees SAGITTARIUS which is being squared by Jupiter the planet that rules sports, and luck. 

They have MERCURY at 17 degrees SAGITTARIUS which Saturn is conjuncting. They have done some serious mental intellectual historical analysis. 

They have a natal VENUS at 21 CAPRICORN with transiting Mercury and Venus conjunct to that. That’s like being at home.

Natal MARS is at 13 SCORPIO is powerful in its home sign of ruthless, powerful, control freaks, and where is Mars today? at 15 degrees of SCORPIO. wih Venus sextiling Mars. zoom zoom.

Their Natal JUPITER at 20 degrees ARIES is conjunct transitting Uranus- this gives them lots of energy and out of the box analysis, doing the unexpected throwing in a little chaos could help them to win.

 

Natal SATURN is at 23 degrees SAGITTARIUS with Jupiter also squaring that- thats oomph.. 

THE DENVER BRONCO’S  

Denver Broncos Astrology Tara Greene

The Bronc’s have a 20 degree Leo SUN . A Fire Moon in early Sagittarius, They have Mercury Retrograde at 7 Leo,  They have Venus RETROGRADE at 15 Virgo conjunct Mars at 15 Virgo,  Jupiter is at 23 Scorpio,and  Saturn is Retrograde at zero degrees Capricorn, the world point.

TRANSITING Neptune is at 8 degrees Pisces opposite their VENUS Mars conjunction which is mainly being Squared by Saturn.  Their could be delusions of grandeur and DRUG taking involved. Something fishy perhaps?  Jupiter is in a wide conjunction to Venus and Mars. 

I am picking the Panthers to win as they have so many planets aligned from their natal chart and the days transits.

I tracked down sports astrologer Andrea Mallis who was interviewed by Fusion after I wrote this and she also favoured Panthers -see link below

Mercury enters Libra,art, social, justice

Mercury leaves his home sign entering Libra, sign of Relationships August 27, turning RETROGRADE September 17 at 15+ degrees Libra and then Direct at zero degrees of Libra on October 9th. Mercury will need until October 25 to get past its Retrograde stationary point.

Libra is Venus’s sign and the chit chat will be all about our partners, fashion, beauty, the social scene, charm, high culture, the arts, fashion, music, theatre, poetry, literature and gossip. 

Do go to art galleries, and let the air signs natural curiosity take you to new dialogues and presentations based on beauty. Think about your own sense of aesthetics. 

That’s almost two months of the planet of communications keeping us focussed on socializing, relationships, relationships and more relationships.  Mercury in Venus’s sign  will certainly want everything to be NICE, friendly, diplomatic, concerned with social justice and connecting with others.

This is the time to seek BALANCE, LIBRA is not naturally peaceful but must find that still point. We may be cementing alliances, making social contacts and contracts and sparkling as the hostess or host with them mostest. Lots of wonderful soirees and parties coming up. 

Libra’s downside is indecision, caught between two opposing forces and wanting to please, Libra tends to lean on what others think and can become superficial and losing the sense of their own power and choices.  

During Mercury’s Retrograde phase yes we continue the theme of having to go back and review, redo, renegotiate, those ideas, communications and dialogues again and again. There will be lots of political debates. A good time to redecorate, renovate, and get a beauty make-over.

Be very careful during Mercury Retrograde of your words. The shadow side of Mercury Retrograde may make Libra’s finding themselves making faux pas’s and destroying liaisons or reputations. 

Saturn will be in Sagittarius the sign of speaking the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth so help you having hoof in mouth disease. Be especially mindful on  October 9th as Mercury turns Direct and sextiles Saturn. The sexy sextile is in effect from  October 1st until October 19.  

The SCALES Of JUSTICE are Modern Libra’s symbol. The Statue of Liberty is the modern version of Libra. Originally these were the Egyptian Goddess Ma’at’s scales. This is the time of the Autumn Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere, the balance of day and night, of the masculine and Feminine. We need a new balance in love, sexual politics, culture, wealth and the world. 

Justice, democracy, freedom and equality will be big topics during these next two months. Major laws may be rewritten or repealed around immigration in many countries. Big legal cases, the Ashley Madison one in particular, and many other imbalances in social justice will be the topics of the day.

It’s all about the Beck, why he won

If you were watching The Grammy Awards Feb 8 with millions of viewers, you, me and everyone in the audience’s jaws dropped as Beck was awarded Album of the Year for “Morning Phase” and Best Rock Album and Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical. Everyone expected Beyonce or Taylor Swift  or Sam Smith to win. Kanye pranked Beck by jumping on stage pretending to protest the win like he did infamously with Taylor Swift. That look on Jay-Z’s face was priceless.

Beck Astrology Tara Greene

For those under 18, Beck Hansen has written and performed his eclectic blend of music since the early 90’s. He has had been awarded 5 Grammy’s from 16 nominations. He comes from an eclectic family, his Mother was an Andy Warhol superstar and his grandfather one of the Fluxus art movement founders. He was raised in Scientology which he still practices and also identifies as Jewish.You can check out more details about Beck’s life in Wikipedia. 

Let’s check out Beck’s chart as I just wanted to point out why,beside his awesome talent and dedication he won this Surprise Grammy award now.

Beck Grammy Astrology Tara Greene

Beck is a Cancer born July 8 1970 in Los Angeles at 11:59 pm. He is a triple Cancer with Mercury and Mars conjunct to the Sun in the 4th house which the Moon rules. He is a very shy private person, very sensitive, emotional, tender. He is a nurturing man, and probably has sensitive tummy issues. 

Where is his Moon which rules his Cancerian identity, communications and drives?

His Moon is in Virgo in the natural 6th house conjunct PLUTO. The plot thickens. Beck is an obsessive perfectionist who pays attention to the details. A workaholic, who may be OCD, who hones every note. His religion is work and dedication to getting the perfect product out. 

His Aries Ascendant gives him a brash image andshows as edgy and high-strung. But he is so internal, so inwardly focussed you don’t see that Aries exterior. I bet he taps his fingers, or feet constantly.

Known for his early quirky songs like Devils Haircut. Saturn is the Devil and Beck has Saturn in earthy, sensuous, music ruled Taurus in the 2nd house of resources and physical wealth. Saturn is opposite to Neptune in his 8th house. Neptune rules all artists, musicians and spiritual people at 28 degrees Scorpio. He is a man who manifests his dreams, through patience persistence, fine tuning, obsessing. Saturn and Neptune form a T-square to VENUS also ruler of arts, relationships, and music at 26 degrees of Leo in his 6th house of profession. It is close to the fixed star Regulus. Beck does have star power. 

Beck has Jupiter in Libra in his 7th house of marriage which is square to his Mercury and Mars. He expands his very internal emotions into beautiful songs about what we encounter in our relationships and the world. He needs to relate to others and can be quite sociable. He is married and has two children. 

He has Chiron, the wounded healer smack dab right on his Ascendant. He wears his wounds on his sleeve. One of his famous songs was called Loser. Chiron is opposite Uranus in Libra right on his Descendent.  Beck’s mission is to heal through his creative gifts. He is definitely a unique one of a kind person who never had an ordinary “normal” life. He is un- status quo in every way. And he likes it that way. 

His North Node is in Pisces in his 12th house. A very spiritual creative mystical placement. His spirituality is also hidden. Scientology. His South Node is in Virgo in the 6th house. He has been a very earthy, humble, intelligent organized, person in his past and he is meant to let go of facts details and figures and  and expand into the All. 

Beck also has some very interesting Feminine strengths and energies in his chart. Dwarf planet Ceres is conjunct Juno in his first house. He also has Lilith conjunct his Venus in Leo. He is attracted to strong independent females. He is not afraid to be a loner. He does things his way or its the highway. This makes him a bred in the bone non-conformist.

WHY THE WIN.

Beck is having the URANUS- SURPRISE! transit to his Sun with Pluto opposite his Cancer Sun- big power and corporate recognition. Neptune has also been transiting his North Node in 2014 when the album came out. He is creatively and spiritually at a peak now.

Saturn in Sagittarius is also Squaring his North Node. This is karmic reward time for his hard work and the maturation {Saturn} is his creative inspiration.

Saturn has also just crossed his Neptune in November 2014. His Neptune in his 8th house is rewards from other people. Saturn conjunct Neptune is physical, reality, rewards for working on your creativity and dreams. Saturn will backtrack in the summer and conjunct his Neptune again in the summer of 2015.
