Blood Moon Eclipse, Fire Goddess Initiation

A shorter version of the article is posted on COSMIC INTELLIGENCE AGENCY website: I’m Agent 129, Tara Greene. http://www.cosmicintelligenceagency.com/2015/09/aries-full-moon-meditation-on-the-fiery-goddesses/
Mars rules the sign of Aries and thus this eclipse. Mars is newly in Virgo where he is in Virgin Goddess territory, a feminine, earthy, intellectual, practical sign. Mars is squaring Saturn, this is a very karmic time and people are tense;- see previous article.

This is the fourth eclipse of 2015 and another Super Moon. Fear not the stories of Armageddon or the state of Israel or anything like that. That fear comes from old Patriarchs and warrior men who seized power 4,000 something years ago and smell that something is up. The old world cultures is dying and a new one is being birthed. The Sun is in Libra and a big theme of this eclipse is a karmic rebalancing between the sexes on the Aries/ me, Libra/ you axis.

Mars is now transformed into an Earth warrior, a defender of the Goddess, a chivalrous Knight in shining armor, battling to save the land, the environment, an eco-warrior, a humble worker bee for the Queen now. The POPE himself just delivered such a message in America. Think of the Knights Templar venturing off to find and protect the Holy Grail.

Blood moon aries lunar eclipse astrology Tara Greene

The eclipse will be entirely visible in all of South America, Cuba and Central America. It will be totally visible in Britain, Spain, Portugal, France, Germany, and parts of Sweden, and East Africa. All the eastern seaboard in Canada and the U.S. will witness the full eclipse. The totality of the eclipse lasts 1 hour and 12 minutes but the entirety is 3 hours and 20 minutes. The countries to see totality are affected the most strongly. The mid- to Western parts of Canada and the U.S. will see the eclipse in progress at moonrise. The eclipse will not be visible at all east of India and in Australia or China and in eastern Russia. This eclipse echoes a past one at similar degrees 18 years ago.

There is a Grand Fire trine composed of Athena the Warrior Goddess in Sagittarius, Uranus in Aries and Venus in Leo. Somethings burning.

The Eclipsed Moon is connected with very strong powerful Feminine Archetypal warrior Goddess energies. The Goddesses are blazingly unstoppably and fearless. The Age of Aries is the beginnings of the Patriarchal Jewish religion. But this time the tables are turning.  The FULL Moon is in Aries conjunct to the South Node, our collective past. The South Node is the black hole of the chart, all light and energy get sucked in and go into that cosmic drain. The old Patriarchal warrior dominator God, split off from Nature and controlling women as a culture is dying.

The Moon being eclipsed will turn blood red, the color of menstrual blood, the Blood of life, which is also the blood that runs in everyone’s veins. The Full Moon is the time of fertility and completion. The Full Moon governs all women’s reproductive cycle, the oceans and our emotions. The ripe ovum is what the Full Moon symbolizes and is on a real physical level. Women’s bodies are always naturally in perfect synchronization with the lunar cycles.

The Moon is conjunct to Asteroid Vesta.  The original Vestal virgins were women who were the Goddess’s sacred hierodules, sacred tantric priestesses. Not the pure chaste patriarchal version at all. Vesta represents focus, dedication and the powers of purification.

The Divine Feminine/the Moon is collectively ripe, ready, and waiting to be fertilized, to conceive, with her own masculine fiery energy. Every man and woman has both an inner contra-masculine and feminine energy. The Moon is self-fertilizing. She can parthenogenically reproduce. This is a very high spiritual training. The Virgin Mary {Virgo} was one of the sacred initiates, a High Priestess of the Goddess who served as a Vestal Virgin and knew how to conceive herself. Also it’s a metaphor.

The Sun is in Libra, ruled by Venus. Libra is the sign of the balance, justice and relationships. Sun is conjunct to the North Node, which creates eclipses. The North Node, our highest spiritual goal is connected to LILITH, the Archetype of the Original woman, pre-patriarchal, pre- Eve. LILITH, like KALI, is The Divine Goddess of all creation, she is free, erotic, and answers to no one but herself, she is uncompromising and both gives birth and brings death as Nature does. Asteroid Goddess JUNO, the Goddess of Feminine Wisdom and Retrograde Mercury are all in a close conjunction with Lilith. We are revisiting some ancient ways of relating.

TRIPLE GODDESS INITIATION

Vesta is a Virgin, a maiden. Juno/Hera is the Mother/wife archetype. Lilith is the Crone aspect. This is the initiation of the Ancient Triple Goddess. Robert Graves wrote about her extensively in his books.

This eclipse is all about bringing us into a new balance, by a trial of fire.  Mars in Virgo is in Square to Saturn in Sagittarius. Like walking on hot coals. We must have faith and trust. It is there. Jupiter in Virgo is opposite Neptune in Pisces also squaring Saturn in Sage. There is a Cardinal cross from Uranus to Pluto we are still in heavy throws of that energy as Pluto just turned direct three days before this eclipse.

RELATIONSHIPS ARE THE HALL MARK OF THE BLOOD MOON ECLIPSE

lbrys Angels, Napoleon Brousseau

Labrys Angels by Napoleon Brousseau

The Blood Moon is the initiation of the collective into a very sacred experience. As the moon is eclipsed by the earth we will witness an alchemical transmutation of the white Full moon symbolizing, the ripe ovum, milk, or semen, into the blood red menstrual cycle. Life and death come together to create something new. Menstrual blood was originally considered to be the most sacred of substances, the word Taboo, originally meant sacred. It was the substance used to initiate men and women. It was used as a sacred offering because it is a magical, the blood of life and not death. Women were seen to bleed monthly exactly in harmony with the moon and not die. Women are the birth givers, the Goddess who brings forth life. These ancient archetypes do not die just because science comes along and explains it all from its’ singular perspective. That is not the entire story. We are not merely physical beings but spiritual beings, storytellers, myth makers. This eclipse symbolizes the sacrificial blood-letting and a new life cycle starting.

Tibetan Buddhists revere a Red Dakini, a powerful Female Deity whose power is  unrelenting fiery passion towards enlightenment. She is an icon of untamed female freedom. Dakinis are often connected to synchronicity and inexplicable coincidences of fate. Tsultrim Allione wrote in her book, Women of Wisdom, “The dakini appears at crucial moments. These encounters often have a quality of sharp, incisive challenge to the fixed conceptions of the practitioner.”

At this powerful time the old patriarchal stories of women being treated as objects, owned by men, raped and abused as the earth is, is falling away. Many relationships will be tested and end during this next 6 months. Women are coming into their full power as independent beings, owned by no man, strong, initiating and fighting the good fight for the earth, and all her children. Defending women’s rights to reproductive freedom, is a right of the goddess and this will become a huge issue..

The CHANDRA SYMBOL by John Sandbach

“A woman harvesting rose petals to make perfume.”

You have the ability to tune into a spiritual wavelength which simplifies, harmonizes and elevates he atmosphere around you. Your positive loving intentions are a healing balm for yourself and others. To the extent which you can trust yourself all negativity falls away and your path opens clearly before you.
Pleiadian Symbol: Gently a feather falls from the skies, settling on a gigantic pyramid.

 Use these symbols and images in your meditation and let them guide you.

ARIES FULL MOON MEDITATION ON THE FIERY Goddesses

Red dakini, red tent, Tara Greene

TIBETAN RED DAKINI, VAJRAYOGINI

This is an active movement meditation.

You need to have 4 four candles, two white and two red candles for the four Directions and elements. You will need to be able to make a fire. It would be good to be outdoors under the Full Moon. You can use charcoals and burn incense too. Be careful of using fire indoors. Wear red and white.

Music: strong energetic staccato music, drums, didgeridoo’s. Gabriel Roth’s staccato rhythm would be good. Live drumming is also recommended both men and women/

The South is traditionally associated with Fire in Pagan/wiccan/ Celtic traditions and in the East with the rising Sun in Indigenous North American teachings. Do what works for you.

Essential Oil for Mars energy: patchouli

Mars related attributes:

Incense: Dragon’s blood, patchouli, myrrh, ginger, peppercorns, coriander, safflower petals, galangal, coffee and cinnamon.

Herbs: Basil, nettle, calamus, catnip, wormwood, thyme,

PLANTS: onions, garlic, mustard seed, leeks,

Trees: wild rose, thistle, brambles, hemlock {poison} all prickly trees,

GEMSTONE: Rubies, carnelian, coral, garnets, and bloodstone.

The Tarot deck suits is wands.

Tools are the wand, staff, athame.

METAL: iron

THE PHYSICAL BODY: Mars rules the head. Migraine headaches, the gall bladder, the Plague, jaundice, shingles and men’s sexual organs and testosterone.
MEDITATION

Smudge yourself first with cedar sweet grass or sage. Light the candles and call in the four directions, the four archangels and your personal angels and the four elements always moving clockwise.

A Rumi Poem to be read

O Beloved, take me,

Liberate my soul.

Fill me with your love and release me

From the two worlds.

If I set my heart on anything but you

Let fire burn ne from inside.

O Beloved,

Take away what I want.

Take away what I do,

Take away what I need.

Take away everything

That takes me away from you.

Gaze into the fire. Semi-close your eyes.  Breathe in and out three times deeply and naturally. Call upon the Triple Goddesses, Vesta, Juno and Lilith to be with you and guide you.  I would be standing up and allowing your body to move in what’s called authentic movement.  Just wait, if you have music or drums just let your body be moved by the beat and rhythm. As this is a grounding of the masculine fire energies, concentrate on your root chakra and feel it expanding, heating up and opening. This eclipse energy will be very strong. Just let it move you.

If you are a woman, how do you feel about your menstrual cycle? Is there shame attached to it?

If you are bleeding on this blood moon, then take out your tampons or menstrual pads and allow yourself to bleed freely into the earth. This is a very powerful way of mimicking the Blood moon. Feel how sacred and connected your body is with the cosmos. Honor yourself as a sacred being. Allow the sense of healing, acceptance, strength and pride in your most natural and most feminine physicality and spirituality.

Menopausal women also carry their blood within them. Remember when you were a maiden. Remember the energy. Belly dancing would be great.

If you have been a victim of sexual abuse or rape, this is the perfect time to vent your righteous anger safely by dancing and screaming it out. Releasing the anger makes way for new energy.

See yourself being transformed from a passive victim, doormat or object into an empowered person. Call upon those Warrior Goddesses. The Morrigan, Brigantia, Pele, Oya, Nike, Freya, Eris or the Vajrayogini, above to empower you to make you strong. Sing/ chant “Warrior Goddess, Warrior Goddess come to me.” over and over.

Once you tune into the fire power of the Triple Goddess and let that energy move through you, you should be feeling very strong, empowered and ready to take on anything. Be joyous, happy and feel liberated. It’s all good. Fear not. The power and the fury of the Goddess is what the patriarchy fears the most. Be a lioness, a mother bear, a ferocious dragon.

Your instincts will know what is ethically right to protect and defend. The Moon symbolizes memories, the blood moon will reveal all of your unconscious memories and instincts. Recollect them use them as your guide.

At the end of the ceremony. Thank all the spirits and elementals and Goddesses or Gods who showed up. Dismiss the direction in clockwise order. Put out your candles or fire.

Initiate a new activity, focus and project using your feminine Fire Power. Let me know how you are doing. These Goddess Archetypes live through us.. 

Many Blessings, Tara

Equinox justice, the re-balancing Point

September 23 2015 @ 8:20 a.m. UT/ 4:201 a.m. PDT/ 1:21 am  EDT the SUN our Source sits exactly on the Equator and the length of day and night are equal. Sun enters the Tropical Sign of LIBRA, the 7th sign, noted for marriage traditionally, all relationships, balance, equality, beauty, women, justice and peace making.

Pagans/witches/Celts in the Northern hemisphere celebrate this as Mabon and for those in the Southern Hemispher it is Eostre, Spring. This is only one of two days in the entire year where day and night are equal. We are in the Balancing point.

Venus Libra Love Tara Greene

 

The Sign of Libra is symbolized by the Scales of Justice which were originally Ancient Egyptian Goddess Ma’at’s scales. This scale weighed the hearts of  the deceased to see if their hearts were light enough to ascend to the realm of the immortals and leave the plane of matter when weighed against her ostrich feather diadem.

Equinox astrology Tara Greene

VENUS is the ruler of Libra and she is the Star literally of the show in Leo risen anew as the morning Star She is still retracing her Retrograde path until she gets to zero degrees Virgo on October 8. In this chart cast for Greenwich UT at 8:20 U.T. The software says something else I know. Libra is also Ascending and the cusp of the 12th house indicating this is definitely a Re-BALANCING act.

Venus is Trining Uranus- see previous article https://infinitynow.wordpress.com/2015/09/23/venus-trine-uranus-krazy-dramas-wild-kinky-love/

MARS Venus’s mate is only 9 degrees away also in Leo. The pair symbolize leading from the heart. There is no balance unless both sexes are on the same playing field. Libra Ascendant is where we are growing into. Uranus is creating new revolutionary ideas for us to live our lives in Peace Balance and harmony and beauty as the off-kilter planet is near the Descendant in the 6th house which is traditionally Virgo’s placement.

The SUN is  conjunct to The NORTH NODE in LIBRA at 1 degree and conjunct Asteroid JUNO the Goddess of Feminine Genius. Don’t buy that old story about Zeus’s long-suffering wife, that’s the patriarchal version and Juno stands beside  LILITH, the Original woman/Goddess who was almost buried in HIStory.  This conveys to me that the power of the Balance comes from women honoring the Goddess and Her genius and their own feminine form of innate wisdom. Women must honor their own power being unafraid to speak out against the old crumbling Patriarchal system to bring peace and balance into the world.

VESTA the Goddess of the Hearth, focus and dedication and the root word for inVESTments is in Aries opposite Lilith and Juno. Lilith can be vengeful. Use your intuition when investing these days. 

MERCURY is Retrograde at the equinox in the 12th house, opposite Uranus and squaring Pluto. There is some back seat negotiations going on behind the scenes. 

The Sun is also sextiling Saturn also at zero degrees Sagittarius.

SAGITTARIUS rules religion and politics. So how synchronistic that the POPE comes to America at this time and will address Congress for the first time. A quarter of the population in the U.S. is Catholic so the Pope’s visit is huge. The Republicans hate the POPE. This is a strange comedy which is also a Sagittarius thing. What will he address Congress with? In a time when we need to have a completely secular world I find it strangely backwards to be mixing religion with politics. That is a form of Sharia law which is religious law of the land. The more it looks different the more it is the same. You know what I mean, it isn’t literal.

This is a brand new starting place for balancing old karmic debts. The Sun is conjunct to positive expansive optimistic intellectual and earthy Jupiter in Virgo. We need to acknowledge what we have harvested in our environment. Our food supplies are a huge issues.

The MOON, the prevailing mood is in Corporate business suited Capricorn, conjunct CERES the Ancient Earth Mother. And the POPE is in America to address Congress about climate change. The Mood is to be grounded, practical repsonsible. The Moon represents the people and women, and she is squaring Uranus.  The forces of the Cardinal Cross energy are still definitely moving through the culture as much as the forces of a feminine revolution are in the wellsprings.

JUPITER in Virgo is on budget, very humble, hard-working, perfectionist and nature loving as well. The Sign of the only woman in the Zodiac Virgo was the original Virgin Goddess,whole and complete unto herself, another name for Demeter/Ceres. 

Jupiter is opposite to Neptune in Pisces and is forming a T-square to Saturn which will be exact on November 26. Jupiter opposite Neptune brings our spiritual yearnings, our dreams, and our creativity down to earth and make it real. Saturn will be testing what is real and what isn’t on all levels over the next few months. This will be a huge wake up bursting of the bubble on every level. Saturn in Sagittarius is Truth telling and justice. Like the VW scandal that just emerged, or the CEO who bought the Aids pill and increased the cost by $750 a pill was forced to recind by the media. That’s instant media karma for you. 

Jupiter is opposite Chiron in Pisces telling of the refugees seeking shelter from the war and compassion. Jupiter rules foreigners, travelling, politics and justice. Some of the refugees are genuine refugees running from a destroyed Syria their homeland which the west refused to enter into. Others are trying to jump on the bandwagon from other countries, Pakistan, Eritrea. It will be chaotic and Saturn in Sagittarius limits travelling. So we shall see which lands the refugees do end up in. Saturn in Sagittarius ruled gypsies so I don’t seem them settling in one place.

 

At the Equinox stop and make time to set your intentions for the next 3 months till Winter Solstice, and longer till next Spring/fall. Because Mercury is Retrograde its a good time to review. The upcoming Blood Moon’s energies are forming with the eclipse as well, so think about where you were 18 years ago at the last eclipse.

Tara Greene,Tarot Reader, Astrology, Psychic

The Blood Moon Total Lunar eclipse begins tonight at April 14 at 9:55 pm PDT on the first night of Passover in the Jewish tradition.

Blood MOON ASTROLOGY Tara Greene

It’s a Full Moon, a completion of a lunar cycle. The Full Moon pulls the tides of the ocean and within our own bodies, emotions swells. It is Spring in the Northern Hemisphere, fertility and passion are rising. 

4 14 14 there is a code there with a Grand Cardinal Cross of 4 planets involved.

Blood Moon lunar Eclipse hump day

Okay we’re all still here. I stayed up fairly late. They have 300 days of totally clear skies here in Arizona but last night wasn’t one of them. The moon was dancing and swirling in and out of the clouds.

I made my Blood Moon Total Lunar eclipse tincture with lots of prayers and intentions. I called in Kali energy, dancing red Dakini energy.  It will shift your chakras, your heart, your resistance big time. An eclipse energy in a bottle is always potent and powerful. It has to incubate.

If you’d like to order some,email me taragreenetarot@gmail.com Limited quantity, $15 a bottle + shipping.

Whats happening today?

VENUS SQUARE PLUTO has already happened LIBRA/Capricorn

Love vs corporate profits; women vs the entrenched system; feminine values of relationships, beauty and equality in relationships is being forged.

Fight for equal rights, it’s happening in gay marriage laws here in the U.S which have been passed but some are being blocked in Idaho. 

WOMEN, WE ARE THE PEACEMAKERS the go betweens, shape shifters,

Venus rules LIBRA squared by PLUTO in earthy Capricorn

it’s also about LOVING YOUR BODY, the earth temple, the beauty of who you are inherently INSIDE.

This is soul beauty. Inner beauty. We live in such a superficial age. I always knew that this was the Dark Ages, in many ways but it is getting lighter.

Mine your inner beauty.  That is what counts.  

A Blood red moon reveals the honoring of women’s menstrual blood as sacred. Before there was animal sacrifice, thousands of years ago, women’s menstrual blood was honored as a holy sacrament.  The BLOOD OF LIFE and DEATH. The apparent oppositions. That Libra thing again.

A FULL MOON is a pregnant fertile image. That is the Holy egg of Life waiting to be fertilized. The red tinge of the eclipse  indicates the balance- the red and white , life and death as perfectly balanced.

Traditionally menstrual blood and semen were mixed together to form the alchemical elixir of life. Used on the Thoth Trump #14 called ART and Sagittarius rules.

Also fits in with the GRAND FIRE TRINE of Uranus in Aries, Jupiter ruler of Sagittarius in LEO and Mars in Sagittarius.

Thoth Tarot astrology Tara Greene

I see the blood moon as symbolic of Trump # 14 Alchemy because it is about the sacred Marriage of the opposites. This is the great and holy work, the art, the higher knowledge. Ultimately we are all one. 

If you want to create your sacred other in your life you must have the #14 energies working internally first.

The numerology base of 14 is the number 5 which is the Pope, masculine spiritual authority. It is Taurus, so can get to be stubborn, disconnected from the intuitive realms. Some systems use the same base number which is 4. Fourteen is 4 at its base. Four  +10= 14.

The 4 is the EMPEROR THE KING-ARIES ENERGY. The eclipse sign.

MARS in Sagittarius, where the action is, exactly trines Jupiter at 1:43 pm PDT/ 4:43 pm EDT I can feel it guiding me.

AIM higher, look back at history or rather herstory, it’s not what the “authorities” have allowed you to know about.  

Moon will qunincunx Saturn later today. If you feel somewhat deflated you’ll know why. You need to incubate too. ECLIPSES are powerful on the adrenals and emoations. 

E-moations. A freudian Mercury Retrograde slip.  is what I wrote. Yes if you need to moan do it.  Sounding is also very healing, Let those feelings out. 

We are birthing the new.

Thursday

The moon enters  TAURUS at 4:44 am PDT/ 7:44 am EDT

moon opposes Mercury early a.m.and makes nice soft, grounding energies all day. 

TAURUS moon trines PLUTO at 11:36 pm PDT 

I am needing to be quieter for a few days. I am finishing off some important writings. I will leave my second home of Sedona on Friday evening. so will be en route Friday night till Saturday.
