Capricorn energy. Siberian Charcoal drawing by Napoleon Brousseau 

Capricorn energy starts December 21st @ 2:23 pm PST/ 5:23 pm EST/ 10:23 pm GMT as Sun enters Capricorn. The Sun sits directly over the Tropic of Capricorn on this day. This is what Tropical western astrology is all about.

Its Capricorn time/ The Devil #15 in the Tarot is here. Capricorn is Feminine earth. Ruled by the ringed planet Saturn. 

The Winter solstice/YULE to Pagans is the shortest day of light in the Northern Hemisphere and the longest day in the Southern Hemisphere where summer begins.

This important cardinal event marks the beginning of one of the 4 seasons a major Gateway in the year. Our ancestors celebrated the death and rebirth of the Light from before the beginning of recorded time.

December 21 is the longest night of 2018 this is the most feminine night. The dark is the realm of the Goddess. Spend December 21 communing with the Goddess with the void directly, with the wise Chrone, with the death bringer Goddesses. The goddess is eternal and her husband/ liver/son is reborn through her labor’s on this night. Christians Annexed these ancient pagan ways into the myth of Christmas. The birth of the Sun/son a pun and is what Jesus supposed birth is based on. Happy return of the light after the sun appear to standstill for 3-days on the solstice which is what the word means Celebrate the transition from the feminine to the masculine half of the year.

This year energy is very busy. Coming right after the SUN URANUS trine- bright chaos- the stock market in the US sunk in one of its biggest sell-off days since the depression.The Dow Jones index closed below 23,000 for the first time since October 2017. 

The SOLSTICE astrology chart can be used as forecast chart for the next 3 months until Spring 2019.

The Moon is in GEMINI all day indicating a rapidly changing dialogue and mutable energies. The Moon is very quick-witted and busy today.

Moon opposes Mercury and Jupiter in Sagittarius in the wee hours 

Feelings, thinking and inspiration are opposed. 

Moon inconjuncts both Saturn in Capricorn and Venus in Scorpio 

The Moon is always the mood of the people and this can indicate money woes and restrictions. Venus in Scorpio is finance and Saturn in Capricorn is seniors, senators and higher-ups in corporate and government.

Moon squares Neptune in PISCES

Mercantile markets will continue to fall because of oil prices. Gemini rules marketing and merchandise and Neptune rules oil and delusions and debt. Watch out.

VENUS in SCORPIO TRINES NEPTUNE in PISCES @ 13 degrees

This is an upbeat romantic idealistic energy at its best. Neptune ins the Higher Octave of Venus. It’s Very spiritual and compassionate. You can fall in love with love easily today. 

This is the best day of the year for Acting artists creative types to put their work out there under the Venus Neptune trine.

Venus in Scorpio is money, secret money, power money, death and rebirth, sex, power and secrets. Sexual predators will continue to be unveiled, also drug deals big Pharma and any big financial shenanigans being opened up.

Use this energy to do a lot of meditation, creative channeling and positive intentions setting for yourself and in 2019. Be careful of maintaining boundaries.

MERCURY CONJUNCTS JUPITER in SAGITTARIUS at 9 degrees conjunct ANTARES

This is another super-powered aspect. ANTARES, the rival of Mars is also Angel URIEL the DIVINE PROTECTOR. Speak your truth, aim higher, fight for justice, make your words inspire others Teach what you know. This is the perfect balance to the High romance energy. Mercury leaves its retrograde shadow period today as well.

SUN enters CAPRICORN at times above and we are grounded at the foot of the mountain. Sure-footed, little kids, prancing.

Gemini moon incojuncts PLUTO in Capricorn in the latter part of the day

Political disagreements are big. People will bait and switch dont get dragged into it and ruin the holiday spirit.

Moon squares Mars in PISCES in PST/ DEC> 22 in EST and GMT

Your dreams may be action-packed under water. Aggressive drunks. Be careful of imbibing too much as Mars in Pisces just wants to ease the pain with addictions.

Full Moon at 0 Cancer Dec. 22 I’ll write about that soon. I am behind in my schedules.

Got to get all my 2019 predictions out and some writing deadlines.

blessings to you.

Love rumbles this week

October 10 The Moon’s in Scorpio and is very busy creating a GRAND FIXED CROSS which is very tense,

Moon connecting with Mercury in Scorpio opposing Uranus in Taurus and squaring Mars in Aquarius and the South Node and squaring the North Node to today.

Mercury in SCORPIO opposes URANUS in TAURUS 

there’s an old song lyric perfect for this.

“When an irresistible force such as you

Meets and old immovable object like me

You can bet just as sure as you live

Something’s gotta give, somethings gotta give, something’s gotta give.” By Johnny Mercer 1954. Irresistible force and stubborn resistance clash.

Stubborn wills lock horns and claws. Mercury in Scorpio can be very biting- watch out for nasty backhanded comments. Uranus in Taurus needs to have a cleverly invented back lob at the ready. Usually, Taurus will ruminate about this but Uranus’s influence enables for lightning-fast wit. 

Try to avoid getting into arguments. 

Scorpio Moon continues and conjuncts Venus

VENUS in Scorpio squares MARS in AQUARIUS

This is one helluva clashy day. Men and women fighting, arguing disagreeing.

‘If I had a rocket launcher ” by Bruce Cockburn comes to mind. 

 Revenge plotting is going on. Be inventive, smarter and faster. Things are obsessive, old conversation and what you should have could of done, roll over and over again in your mind. Try to take the high road.

Moon trines NEPTUNE in Pisces at night in PDT/ October 11 in EDT and GMT

sleep on it, dream on it. meditate, create with it. Sing, dance, paint. This will be necessary after such a tense day.

Pluto turns Direct September 30

Pluto is stationary turning Direct September 30 @ 7:03 pm PDT/ 10:03 pm EDT/ October 1 @ 2:03 am GMT

Pluto will begin to inch forwards in about 4 to 5 days.

todays astrology Tara Greene

What has been hidden held back while Putos has been Retrograde since April 22, 2018, will slowly bubble up like toxic swamp gas. 

Pluto rules the Collective Unconscious and if you think the big sexual secrets, such as – paedophilia by the Catholic church and all the recent support for the millions of women who have been sexually abused for aeons coming out now is a bid deal- that is just the tip of Hades iceberg. My old teacher Stuart Wilde used to say that Hell is freezing cold like people who are unfeeling and love is warm hot and fuzzy. right?

The polarity that we are seeing is also being created and used and promoted by the NWO. While I do not agree with sexism, misogyny, racism and Ku Klux Klan white supremacy at all. The equal and opposite and just as restrictive hate is to blame all Republicans for being sexist racist and wanting to wipe them off the map as I’ve seen a prominent person do on Instagram is just fascist too. 

We need to be smarter than that. It is so easy to manipulate people into knee-jerk responses. For me the good thing in all of this is to see the positive effects of this polarizing as millions of woman support each other by admitting in public their sexual abuse and releasing their personal and the collective shame and naming the sexist culture which has created it. 

The Moon is in Gemini today making another trine to Mercury in Libra 

more hot debates going on.

MOON is VOID OF COURSE FROM 11:38 AM EST all day 

a great sunday for chilling.

Moon enters CANCER October 1 @ 2:00 pm EST

Blaming or scapegoating the other is not healthy. Freedom of speech is what democracy is built on. Everyone needs to be allowed to express their views without being threatened. Yes there is no room for hate speech from either side.  But in my world the entire Christian Bible is one big hate speech against women. 

If we are evolving let’s take this to a higher level of consciousness. Things are extreme as new worlds begin. These old Senators and Saturn ruled historical old boys are at the end of their power and they are trying to hang on by the skin of their teeth but they are still the ones who have the power. That is why the revolution is happening at any moment. 

Revolutions aren’t usually pretty or bloodless, The big danger is this kind of fomentation and emotional chaos sets everyone up for a police state. One way or the other everyone can lose all their power to the corporate Gods.  That is the very darkest side of Pluto in Capricorn and remember Saturn is also in Capricorn now heading for a meeting with Pluto. Jupiter will also be in Capricorn and note  December 26, 2019, with a Solar Eclipse at 4 degrees Capricorn conjunct Jupiter.

There is a fated date of January 12, 2020 with Jupiter in Capricorn conjunct the South Node in Capricorn. 

Also note April 5, 2020, when a New Jupiter-Pluto- The Billionaire’s transit occurs at 24 Capricorn conjunct the South Node of Pluto @ 23 degrees Capricorn. There is a second conjunction on June 30, 2020. 

NOte: November 13 2020, the final Jupiter- Pluto conjunction at 22 degrees Capricorn conjunct Saturn!

On December 21 2020 Winter Solstice a new 20-year cycle begins with a Jupiter Saturn conjunction at zero degrees AQUARIUS. This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius? 

Be very aware and listen to your still inner voice beyond all the cacophony. That’s the perfect word for now. Watch out for the caca bad who is the real phony?

Pisces dreaming big

Hi I’ve been on the road. Had a beautiful deep Autumn equinox ceremony in my friend Maureen Walton’s beautiful moon lodge/yurt. We sat in the wombspace  there was 5 of us in total doing a ceremony and dreaming in the dark wide awake for about two and a half hours.

The dreamy energy continues today Sept. 23

as PISCES MOON trined romantic venus in Scorpio

this energy is extremely psychic, soulful, intense and obsessive.

Sun opposed Chiron in Aries exact today

Our wounds and vulnerabilities are easily seen today. No hiding.  we are all feeling vulnerable and wounded but can heal ourselves through loving ourselves. This makes us very sensitive to relationship and worldly imbalances and injustice in the world.

Learning to love ourselves without the mirror of the other is a prime issue. We are all struggling with this. Sara Sophia Eisenman pointed this out on FB today and she writes about the struggle to truly love ourselves. We have been conditioned to hate ourselves and despise our bodies. We’ve been lied to that people are born in “original sin.” Even though I wasn’t raised Catholic the stench of that lie has taken up hundreds of years and millions of peoples lives and destroyed them. How insidious. 

Mercury squares Saturn in Capricorn

Relationships are being put to the test. There is a lot of tension and stress. 

Moon conjuncts Neptune and sextiles Pluto in Capricorn

This is a dreamy hyper psychic day. Many pleasant soul connections will be forged. 

Mercury in LIBRA trines MARS in AQUARIUS in the evening

Relationships move ahead with the lightning speed with those we are on the same wavelength with.

Pisces Moon trines Jupiter in Scorpio in PDT

Sept. 24 in EDT and GMT 

whoopee. this makes for excellent sexy dreams. Jupiter in Scorpio enhances transformation, death and rebirth energy. Meditate on the core energies of sex death and transformation through ego death. Surrender yourself.

Grande Earth Trine

Aug. 31  Grand Earth Trine in place

TAURUS MOON trines Saturn in Capricorn and Virgo Sun.

EARTHY TRINES helps us to savour the earth plane ruled by Saturn.

An earlier conjunction to Uranus in Taurus adds an element of surprise, chaos, disruptive emotions, and unexpected wild energies. 

Moon in Taurus sextiles Neptune in Pisces late in PDT 

This is great for really grounding and remembering your dreams as your body always remembers. 

Taurus Grand trine moon energy is a good night for enjoying great food, good wine and dancing or singing. It’s also quite romantic. Saturn is still Retrograde until September 6th but is slowing down now and is virtually at standstill.

God is a woman! Grand Fire Goddess Trine Athena Vesta Eris

An amazing Grand Fire Goddess trine of Athena Vesta and Eris/ Discordia in the sky

The Grand Trine Tara Greene Astrology

Fire Goddess sexual Healing Vesta -astrology by Tara Grene

Vestal Virgin by Jean Raox Public Domain image by Wikimedia Commons

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Asteroid ATHENA  @ 24 Leo trines Sexual Priestess Goddess VESTA @ 24 Sagittarius and trines ERIS @ 23 59 minutes of Aries exact August 23 continuing for a little while.

Is perfectly embodied in singer Arianna Grande’s sumptuous new Video God is a Woman which premiered July 13

This is such a powerful energy. 

ERIS hardly moves. She takes 560 years- 7 longer than average lifetimes of 80 years to make one complete transit of the sun. Eris takes .6428+ of a year to move one degree. That means in your average lifetime Eris will only move 5 degrees or so. She was discovered in 2005. She has traveled through ARIES for the last approximately 372 years ago since 1646. She was at this same degree in 1458.

The Byzantine empire fell in 1453.- a very big deal. This is in the middle of the great culture Renaissance in Italy 1400-1475.

Eris is her Greek name. She was known as DISCORDIA by the Romans she is the personification of Strife and daughter of Nyx -Night by Hesiod a sister to ARES/Mars the war God. She is the warrioress Goddess. Her story is this. She alone of the Gods and Goddesses was not invited to the marriage of Peleus and Thetis she threw a golden apple among the guests inscribed “for the most beautiful.”  Hera/ Juno Athena and Aphrodite/Venus all claimed it.  They fought and Zeus/Her/Juno’s husband assigned the decision to Paris who was a Sheppard on Mount Ida. He said Aphrodite deserved it. She helped him win the hand of Helen of Troy which started the infamous Trojan War.  

She is the archetype of the denied dark feminine and she is royally pissed and she has a right to feel that way as her Goddess powers have been denied and aggressively suppressed and abused for so long by the Patriarchy and World Religions.

Eris is the 13th uninvited Fairy or guest in the Sleeping Beauty story. Eris symbolizes any overlooked unconscious shadow part of our personal and collective shadows which we do not welcome. That part has enormous power and strength and will wreak vengeance as a result of being ignored.  

Athena the warrior Goddess is the patriarchal version of an Amazon warrioress from Libya. 

Vesta is the sacred tantric sexual healing priestess how I have written about elsewhere in my site.

This aspect has been in effect since Aug 24 and continues until Athena and Vesta move to 28 degrees 59 minutes of Leo which conjuncts Fixed Star Regulus and 28.59 Sagittarius when they are conjunct to Galactic Center in Sagittarius.

I’m going to check out Ariana Grande’s astrology chart to see how prominent these goddesses affect her.

Ladies get ready to burn down that old shabby Patriarchal house down to ashes.

Beautiful Dirty Rich Venus Trine Pluto July 27-August 5

After the bloodbath Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius July 27.. how are you feeling?

Venus at Cardiff Castle Astrology Tara Greene

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have been totally exhausted by it but that’s as to be expected with a Mars retrograde and of course it was the Moon’s bleeding time obviously. A sign that women should not be ashamed of getting their moon blood or menstrual periods. 

We get a big luxurious wonderful Grand Earth Trine from Venus the goddess of women love beauty harmony luxury and the arts in usually humble budget conscious Virgo with death and rebirth master and the Dark Lord Pluto in Capricorn who unearth the soul’s richest- the kind you do get to take with you.

Unearth the riches of the anima the soul and the earth. Our bodies. we are being invited into discovering our souls choosing to be on the earth place for a reason. With Saturn and Pluto in earth and Uranus mainly in earthy Taurus for the next 7 years. we better get used to being grounded. 

All trines are easy blending aspects between planets. Use this combo of wealth and beauty to manifest more beauty more depth more psyche. 

You can listen to that Lady Gaga song to for inspiration if you like. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Nr33m1zXVE

Juno the asteroid Goddess of Feminine Genius is in Taurus at 11 degrees in a wide grand trine with CERES at 12 degrees VIRGO conjunct Venus and Trine Pluto.

Use this energy wisely. It lasts until August 4th/5h when Puto makes his next planetary aspect. 

LILITH is also standing at the 29th degree of Capricorn until August 5th

Lilith at the most critical degree encourages us to embody Liliths fierce uncompromising energies. Women need to embrace and download lilith’s energy. Her return is very important to the reblancing of the earth.

Seeing Red Super Rare Retro Mars Lunar Blood Moon Eclipse

July 27 This Blood red Moon Aquarius Lunar eclipse is a super rare thing. It will be the longest eclipse of this century lasting 1 hour and 43 minutes. As Mars the red planet is Retrograde and very big closest to the earth in 15 years – a half Saturn cycle we will see it shine twice as bright as Jupiter during the eclipse as the Moon darkens shadowed by the earth and the stars will reappear from the Full Moon’s light. I remember seeing this under a blood moon eclipse in Sedona in 2016. 

Mars is directly opposite the Sun during this eclipse indicating a standoff situation. Mars is conjunct the full moon being eclipsed and all of which square Uranus while Mercury has just stationed retrograde in Leo.

Donald Trump and this lunar eclipse

Eclipses occur at similar degrees every 18+ years. These are called Saros Cycles. This is Saros cycle 129. The last eclipse in Saros 129 was on July 16, 2000. That was in the dot come bust period so another similar cycle will be recurring. The earlier Saros 129 cycles eclipses were July 6, 1982, and June 25, 1964 June 14, 1946, which was Donald Trump’s birthdate he was born during this Saros Cycle and this year promises to be HUGE for him in terms of dramatic changes as they have been 18 and 36 years ago.

Mars rules Aries and Scorpio and they will fee this energy the most. 

Aries is the warrior aspect and Scorpio is death and rebirth of the soul. The soul’s highest goal is tied to the North Node and the karmic past is the South Node. The collective evolution is tied to the North Node. The Nodes of the Moon are responsible for creating all eclipses solar and lunar. 

The eclipse is asking the old masculine warrior energy to pass away with the South Node. It is perishing the old cog in the wheel energy. 

Aquarius is the sign of rebellion and individuality within the collective. New collectives will emerge from this eclipse. This is a strange mix of high energy tensions for change with a built-in resistance to change coupled with a sluggish flaccid Mars Retrograde Mercury Retrograde and Saturn Neptune and Pluto all Retrograde.

The effects won’t happen till after Mars is direct and Mercury as well after August 27th. 

Mars Retrograde is a regressive energy. Men may be acting infantile like frustrated spoiled babies as the Sun opposes them. Old daddy issues may be projected out in anger onto women. 

GRAND EARTH TRINE

Venus is exactly trine Pluto during the Eclipses at 19 degrees in a wide grand earth trine with Juno in Taurus @ 11 degrees. This brings the inherent Feminine Genius women embody as the currency of the most value. 

Venus and Neptune are still in a separating opposition which was exact earlier in the week and Venus us sextiing Jupiter too a bountiful aspect. 

This brings a very beautiful spiritual creative energy of grounding. Visualize the world you want to see.

Saturn is Inconjunct the eclipse

Saturn represents the old boys Patriarchy club elders statesman senators who are blindly balking the evolutionary status of this eclipse. Too bad.

Saturn and Uranus are trine in Earth signs

This is a positive change aspect to the mix. Although Saturn will dig in its heels while Uranus in Taurus also resists the changes.  

Uranus squares the SUN

Tensions between should I stay and evolve alone or with others? No man is an island. Collective actions against powers that be will be the new norm. 

Path of the Lunar eclipse

The eclipse will be totally visible over most parts of central to East Africa all of  Middle East parts of Russia and India where the effects will be felt the strongest. The eclipse will not be visible at all in North America Greenland and parts of northeast China. 

Lunar eclipse path July 27 2018 Tara Greene

We will still feel it and you can watch it on live cameras on the net.

While the eclipse is on get comfy relax and breathe into it. Ironically a Lunar eclipse blocks out feelings out as the earth overshadows the Moon. The retro Martian influence will be strongest. Mars retrograde is surrendering puttin gup a white flag of Peace not fighting or running simply allowing. I. Patience is a virtue. Go within don’t try to fight it outside of yourself. Find peace within yourself first. The strong Venus earthy energy will help us.

Remember the symbol of Aquarius in the Tarot it is #17 the STAR

The Star Tarot Tara Greene Astrology

The STar The Ancient Sky Goddess Urania which rules Astrology pours her cosmic wisdom which was symbolized by water onto the earth. Aquarius is the symbol of rebellion freedom revolution. She is stirring up the waters of change. We need to dump old toxic masculine ways now.

Chandra and Omega Symbols for the eclipse by John Sandbach

Aquarius 5. Gradually the wind unearths a temple buried in the sand. (Omega Symbol) Manifesting/Inspired

(Degree Angel: LAVIAH (LAH-vee-YAH) Great Escape, Revelation)

Thought processes Aquarius can obscure knowledge by twisting it, misreading it, and shifting focus away from what is most important. This degree senses the profound wisdom to be found everywhere, if one can just clear away the debris of meaningless details and ignorance that have buried it. It seeks the purity of divine essence amidst the fogs of negativity, and its persistence finds it, eventually. 

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Humans worshiping an obese nature goddess.” This degree deeply believes in the abundance of nature, and knows that when we allow ourselves to be receptive to what life is offering us, we can draw to ourselves all that we need. What enhances and supports this process most is sharing this attentiveness to the forces of nature with others. This is what helps us to get back to pure spirituality, and unearths the temple of the Omega Symbol.

Pleiadian Symbol: Many generations of a family speaking to each other across time. 

Azoth Symbol: Archives which no one has looked into for many years.

Seed degree: Taurus 29.A man reaches out to touch a marble statue. He feels it smiling. (Omega Symbol). When we acknowledge what we’ve created we come back into re-atunement with our spiritual self. 

A man amuses himself by drawing strange shapes. (Chandra Symbol). Creative experimentation accesses the endless abundance of the divine mother. 

Fulfillment degree: Leo 26. In a bookstore, a chance meeting of long lost friends. (Omega Symbol). As we reconnect with spirit all positive and life supporting relationships are brought back into focus.

A fire burns at the bottom of an old well (Chandra Symbol). Attuning to the great mother we realize creative forces at work deep inside ourselves.

Remember that there will be another Solar eclipse August 11 in Leo @ 18 degrees

We will be synthesizing all of this for a while and simmering it on the cosmic thermonuclear furnaces.
