Inspirational Daily Card – Picasso as a Minotaur

A quick jaunt into slowing down into bovineville. Yes chew your cud, smell the roses, lumber along. 

Mercury in Taurus is a very sensuous, earthy, physical  mind, One that communicates through gut instincts. This will be nice to have on EARTH DAY coming up April 22. 

They speak slowly considering every word and effect. They make seductive silver tongued salesmen. 

Taurus is sensuous and creative. Get into your gardening, slather on the cream, give and receive massages. This is hands on DIY time, make stuff, buy hand made quality on ETSY. Taurus is ruled by Venus who is now skipping along in Gemini which Mercury governs. These two are in mutual reception now.  Love in is the head and the mind is in the body. This is a good time to understand and communicate in a more genuine way.

People born with Mercury in Taurus are charming, have good speaking voices, very attractive. You know some peeps with this?

Mercury inconjunct Saturn 

Feels like a Mercury Retrograde. Communications snafu. Dont even try to explain. Better to say nothing.

PLUTO goes RETROGRADE on its annual turnabout until September 25

Spend these 5+ months on the journey into the Underworld. The best time to journal, to do therapy, to dance with your shadow. Work with these times.

April 17   MARS in Taurus squares JUPITER in LEO – BIG BULLY DAY

This energy could ignite any already tense situation and there are tons of them out there in the world these days. 

I could jokingly call it “Wooly Bully” – an infamous ditty of a 60’s song by the appropriately names Sam the Sham.

Yes the Bulls will be out in the ring fighting with the Lions.

Yes watch for major conflagrations. Many people yelling and calling each other out. Could be good for the markets which keep inflating like Hot air balloons.

Discordia in effect! Eris square the SUN

Jan 13 2015

Eris is in an exact square, a 90 degree tense angle to the SUN today. DISCORD CHAOS and TROUBLE is on HIGH ALERT! Eris was discovered on Jan 5 2005 in California, the dwarf planet which was supposed to be a 10th planet in our solar system. She was almost names Xena for planet x and for the Tv show.

Eris is named for the Greek Goddess of CHAOS, STRIFE and DISCORD contention and rivalry. 

Eris, Las Vegas, Astrology Tara Greene

STATUE OF ERIS, and the golden apple, Caesar’s Palace  Las Vegas 

Beware the chaos. Eris symbolism is much like Uranus’s chaotic energy. We have seen how Uranian and Plutonian energies have been rattling the world these days. 

What to do in the chaos? Stay centered, breathe, radiate love. “Blow love” at people as Stuart Wilde used to say. 

She was thought of as a bloodthirsty Goddess haunting battlefields to drink blood. This reminds me that originally she may have been a Kali-like Goddess.

HESIOD described her in his Theogony as a Goddess who gave birth to many ghouls and demons to plague humankind such as Ponos- Toil, Limos- Starvation, Algea- Pain, Hysminai- Fightings, Makhai- Battles, Phonoi- Murders, Androktasiai-Manslaughterers, Neikea- Quarrelers, the Pseudo-Logoi -Lies, the Amphilogiai-Disputes,  there are more horrid children she birthed but you get the picture.

Eris was directly connected to PANDORA and her box of ill repute and dangers. A feminine metaphor for a dangerous vagina. 

She was not invited to the wedding and to get her revenge she threw a Golden Apple inscribed with “to the fairest” at 3 goddesses, Hera Athena and Venus/Aphrodite who battle it out. This eventually led to the Trojan War and much loss.  The apple relates her to VENUS and the Number 5. All Ancient Goddess are covered in Patriarchal references so her origins would place her closer to Lilith.

Eris was discovered at 19 plus degrees of Aries Tropical when she came into our consciousness again. She entered Aries in March of 1925. Her orbittal period is 558 years, twice as long as Pluto’s. She is now at 22 + degrees ARIES. She is the 9th most massive body known to orbit the sun.  We don’t know that much about her but we will soon when the New Horizons probe arrives on  Pluto on 14 July 2015 carrying Clyde Tombaugh’s ashes. He was the one who discovered Pluto in Flagstaff Arizona in 1930. 

The SUN  squares her twice a year when at 22 degrees Cancer and 22 degrees Capricorn and opposes her at 22 degrees of Libra.

Of course we can see how since we rediscovered her archetype that there is much too much discord and disagreement these days with people shooting all kinds of vile vindictiveness; terrorism, racism, gay bashing, bully’s, and internet shout outs. 

There is more  prominent Goddess symbolism.

LILITH the original WOMAN is at 3 degrees of VIRGO, sign of the harvest.

Showing us that we have thrown ourselves out of  Eden, the earthly paradise. We have  despised, humiliated, spit upon, raped, and rejected the Earth as the Patriarchy did to Lilith/Eris herself. As the Patriarchy continues to do to women. We have got to get back to the Garden from where we originated.

Lilith is opposite Neptune at 5 degrees Pisces-

This is our delusions about woman, our addictions to sex, drugs and denial as an escape from pain and refusing to face these deeply wounded archetypes of ours. And what about the Oceans we have messed up? Or the dreams we have left in the wilderness?

Lilith is square to Goddess Athena at 2 degrees Sagittarius.

ATHENA is the warrior and wisdom Goddess, who was originally an AMAZON from Libya.  Her wise owl, is one of Lilith’s symbols as well. She is a seer, one who sees in the dark.

This aspect symbolizes the anger, vengeance and warrior aspect of the Feminine Psyche in the masculine. Athena in Sagittarius is going to re-educate the world about women’s intelligence. She is aiming arrows higher, telling the truth, being optimistic, and will introduce new laws and education.

Athena is conjunct to Saturn in Sagittarius

Athena was patriatchalized ,born fully grown and armored from her father Zeus- Jupiter’s head. Jupiter rules Sagittarius and Pisces. Saturn is the Father Time, the architect. Saturn structures, limits and is karma.  Another symbol of the Feminine fighting back from patriarchal karma.

One of Sagittarius symbols is the Rainbow. The Rainbow is traditionally a symbol of a blessings from Heaven. An open chakra bridge between heaven and earth. Lets us walk on that path. Let us build the Rainbow bridge.
