Gord Downie. Life and death Astrology

Gord Downie singer-songwriter leader of Canadian band The Tragically Hip has died October 17 at 53 of brain cancer. The band never made it big beyond the 49th parallel but The Hip has been the quintessential Canadian rock band for 30 years. Their last cross-Canada tour in 2016 after Downie announced that he had been diagnosed with a particularly deadly type of brain cancer ended with 11 million Canadians watching their final concert live.

Outpourings of sympathy for Downie’s family and four children came from Prime Minister Trudeau who was in tears as well as from indigenous leaders and fans.  The flag on the Peace Tower in Ottawa Canada’s Capital will be flown at half-mast until sunset on the day of the funeral or memorial service of the late Gord Downie. Canadian’s feel like they have lost a Canadian hero.

For his work in support of Indigenous people to reconciliation in Canada in 2016, he was given an honorary aboriginal name, Wicapi Omani, which is Lakota for  “man who walks among the stars.” Now Downie is. 

Let’s look at Downie’s astrology 

Gord Downie astrology by Tara Greene

 

Born Feb 6, 1964, in Kingston Ontario time unknown. The strongly AQUARIAN rebellious man was a unique “out of the box” individual and thinker who worked well with groups. He was a man who thought inclusively.

He had MARS and SATURN conjunct to his Sun. He was a seriously passionate individual with an electric wired energy. He saw the world from a higher perspective. Mars and Saturn are a difficult combination karmically. He was driven to be his own man but also respected traditions. 

I presume his MOON was in deeply intense soulful emotional cathartic Scorpio. He had immense charisma and willpower.

MERCURY in CAPRICORN Gord as a serious communicator and thinker. He respected history worked hard took his words seriously.

VENUS in PISCES

Gord was very much a poet and artist a spiritual man very loving and compassionate. He was charitable and sensitive to others’ pain.

JUPITER in ARIES at the 15th degree. Gord was an independent headstrong energetic fighter with lots of energy.

At the 15th degree. Gord was an independent headstrong energetic fighter with lots of energy. He liked to take risks and got bored easily.

NEPTUNE in SCORPIO

The planet of artists and a spiritually powerful person who can have enormous effects on the world. Money power and influence came to Gord through his songs and deep insights into the human condition. His artistry was transforming and therapeutic. He cared about soul. Neptune squared his SUN MARS and SATURN. Saturn is the planet of tragedy. NEPTUNE makes a FINGER OF GOD to JUPITER in ARIES and URANUS PLUTO conjunction in VIRGO. Jupiter in Aries likes to be first with everything-Hip.

NORTH NODE in CANCER 

Spiritually his greatest growth was to be a father a family man and nurture others. He was very sensitive and emotional. SOUTH NODE in CAPRICORN- career was important and he already understood the structure of business. He was a serious man in many ways.

URANUS PLUTO conjunction opposite CHIRON in PISCES

This is a transpersonal aspect which millions of people share born during the same year. Gord came to heal people to help heal the world’s soul.

His death was expected.

Transitting CHIRON the WOUNDED HEALER conjunct to his VENUS in PISCES. This is a lovely spiritually peaceful rewarding death. 

Gordon Downie’s legacy will be listened to and remembered. Sending my condolences to his children and family. One of Downey’s sons Lou an aspiring actor attended school with my daughter at Rosedale Heights School of the Arts.

“It can’t happen here.” Spiritual protection.

I am sending blessings to those who were killed at a Mosque outside of Quebec City in Canada Sunday night. It’s shocking for us Canadians to see this kind of gun violence here where guns are not easy to get and not part of our culture. This has obviously been triggered by Trump’s anti-Terrorist stance. Until we know who did it we can’t say. Are they angry Americans? French-Canadians? White Conservatives? suprematist?
Prime Minster Trudeau called this a Terrorist act against Muslims. That is a truth and it helps people to see that all acts of severe violence are terrorist acts whoever perpetrates them.

Ironically, Trudeau had just promised that he would take all refugees into Canada that Trump refuses in spite of religion saying that “Diversity is Canada’s greatest strength.” He has offered free housing temporarily to those detained at borders and airports. I have always felt proud that Canada has held open its doors to all refugees, but in this day and age and divisive times, obviously, some people do not agree with him. This was that message.

QUEBEC TERRORISTS

There have been many hate crimes against mosques in Quebec over the last 5 years. This is doubly ironic as Trudeau’s ancestry is mainly French-Canadian. The French, who were Canada’s first immigrants, fought the British for control of Canada over many years. The battle ended on the Plains of Abraham in Quebec City, on September 13, 1759, when the British won.

Canadians have had a history with their own home-grown Terrorism from French- Canadian separatists, the FLQ from 1963-1970. They set off 95 bombs, kidnapping a British diplomat and a Canadian cabinet minister and murdered him. Prime Minister P. E. Trudeau. Justin’s’ father declared Martial Law in Canada, the only time it has ever been used in Peace times. This was very controversial. The kidnappers negotiated an exile to Cuba.

I really don’t like to see this happening in my country especially or any country. When the shadows of hatred are opened up they gain a lot of power.

The Astrology above, perfectly mirrors these actions, as I wrote yesterday. The planets of communication, Mercury and the yes it’s still a planet, Pluto, Lord of Death, power, control, secrets, espionage, the unconscious shadows, are conjunct in Capricorn, sign of worldly power.

The Message is Power, to paraphrase Canadian, Marshall McLuhan.

Famed journalist, Carl Bernstein, who called Trump a neo-fascist last March, said on CNN that “fascism is about a maximum leader, who is contemptuous of real democracy, of real Democratic institutions, contemptuous of the press and a free press, who extols torture and violence, who incites hatred. And there’s a great book, Sinclair Lewis’ ‘It Can’t Happen Here,’ published in the ’30s, and we’ve never quite had a presidential candidate reach this level of prominence who embodies kind of what Sinclair Lewis was talking about in that book.”

It seems it can happen here, there and everywhere.

The Moon is in PISCES Jan. 30 approaching a NEPTUNE conjunction

The planets are urging us to feel our ONENESS, to use our 6th senses to know we are inherently interconnected and One living entity. Expect lucid dreams and strong messages. If you have nightmares you are picking up the fear and duality in the world. Use LAVENDER OIL on your 3rd eye before going to bed. Use Black Tourmaline to ground yourself and to dispell Negative entities.

Expect LUCID DREAMS and strong messages being sent through the night.. If you have nightmares you are picking up the fear and duality in the world. Use LAVENDER OIL on your 3rd eye before going to bed. Use Black Tourmaline to ground yourself and to dispell Negative entities.

THE FEAR FACTOR  and HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF

If you have nightmares these days, you are picking up the fear and duality in the world. Use LAVENDER OIL on your 3rd eye before going to bed. I use it daily. Use Black Tourmaline to ground yourself and to dispel Negative entities. Use smudges a traditional Native American cleansing smoke made up of dried sage, cedar and sweet grass traditionally. You can use just dried sage, not the cooking kind for this ritual. The burning herbs have clarifying properties, remove negative energies, headaches and dispel dark vibrations. Use with intention and prayers. It has the same purpose as the same as using incense in Hindu, Catholic and other religions.

We must learn to have some balance now. Breathe, stay centered.

Monday Jan 30 the PISCES MOON Sweetly sextiles MERCURY and PLUTO this may open people’s hearts some. I hope so. You may be feeling foggy and disoriented, in denial. Watch your intake of sugar, coffee, alcohol and any drugs today.

The rest of the weeks bring on more of the CARDINAL CROSSES. Breathe, stay centered.

11:22 MAster Numbers, Sagittarius, Horse whisperers,

Aries Moon warrior energy  is active until Monday morning.

WARRIOR Moon trined Mercury in Sagittarius to make us tell the truth, opposed Mars in Libra,there are many arguments. Did Donald Trump really say that about making Muslims wear ID’s or was that falsely planted?

Cardinal Crosses continue

Moon opposes VENUS in LIBRA in the a.m. 

This ignites the Cardinal Cross energies of most of 2015. Relationship problems?

Time to rebalance.  Moon conjuncts Uranus and is in Quincunx to JUPITER in the evening. 

It may be a challenge to get grounded. But I urge you to get past the discomfort zone. A good fast walk in nature will clear your head. 

Moon trines Saturn in Sagittarius late last night, an inspiring open easy going night with jokes too?.

11/22 

MASTER NUMBER the is the 52nd year since President Kennedy’s Assassination. 

SUN ENTERS SAGITTARIUS @ 7:25 am PST/10:25 am EST

Here’s to you wise Sage’s. Those who must use their horse-sense. 

Happy Birthday to my cousin Rochelle. 

Sagittarius loves philosophy metaphysics history mythology religion, politics , sports, teaching. travelling and jumping on their soap boxes.

Saturn is making all of those issues heavily laden. We are bearing an iron cross from Saturn which  is History and as I wrote about in the Crusades article, 920 years ago we were fighting Muslims to take back the Holy Lands. We are deja vuing the same territory again. 

One cannot negotiate with madmen or psychopaths. There is no reasoning. There is a huge underlying root problem. Tthousands of young men who are disenfranchised muslims are easily lured into Extremist heroics. Most youth is disenfranchised and fed violent video games, they are easily deluded. The group born with Pluto in Sagittarius, 1995-2008 are, at the eldest 20 years old now. This entire generation would be most likely to be fighting and dying over religious beliefs. 

Saturn square Neptune in Pisces

Is literally religious fantasies and delusions.  These two are clashing and its all coming to a head in a long term transit.  Right wing Republicans hold pretty much the same views as Islamic State folks. They aren’t shooting people yet but their values are mainly the same. 

SAGES its our turn to shine. I must say I am really hot to trot with teaching, inspiring, yakking away in my hoof in mouth fashion these days. All this Sagittarius energy is invigorating. I must be carefull to hold my tongue, as I know most people are not ready to really question themselves or their beliefs and according to Evolutionary astrologer Jeffrey Wolf Green- no relation- he stated that 75% of the human race is in the herd state. That is they are not evolved enough consciously to be self-aware or to be able to break away from their given cultural and religious beliefs.

That is the first step to real spiritual autonomy and enlightenment. Your enlightenment is entirely within you. No outside authority can give you that experience. 

SAGITTARIUS SOAPBOX  and saturn square Neptune in Pisces 2015-2016

  Bill Maher pointed out on his show, that right-wing GOP’s should not oppose taking in refugees as everyone came to the U.S. escaping religious persecution and seeking freedom.Maybe it was Stephen Colbert who pointed out that the new americans then stole the land away and destroyed and conquered the Indigenous Peoples.  This is the plan so of course they are scared that someone else would do the same back.  

He then pointed out that Islam is the root cause of Islamic State Terrorists, we cannot forget that. ISIL wants to impose SHARIA law which originates from Islam, even if it does not represent the original view of Mohammed. Not all Muslims are terrorists of course. According to a poll 6 million Turkish would agree with Islamic state values. Their religion and culture is much more tribal and repressive than the wests, in nature anyways. They can’t step out very easily. They never had a reformation in Islam. They really need that now. They all worship the same belief of Allah as God.

A Muslim man on FB last night pointed out that ISIL is a Muslim problem and that Muslims should deal with it.  ISIL has killed more Muslims than any other source, and he cautioned the West to not be so liberal as to separate the two. I went to comment and then lost his comment. I wanted to thank him for being so rational and taking responsibility.  

ISIL extremists cannot be separated from Islam because it expresses Islamic values. These are not the values of any free democratic western country. Islam’s main tenet is total control and repression of women, they are chattel, cattle and have no rights or freedoms whatsoever. I find that the most threatening. Christians used to believe this doctrine to then they’ve grown beyond this Neanderthal thinking.

Why can’t intelligent people see this? Why don’t women see Islam as a threat to all women? And all orthdox or fundamentalist beliefs? 

Western culture is also decadent, so this is a very complex issue. Women in the west are still treated as inferior and used as sexual objects for men. Muslims also see women as sexual objects but cover up their women for the same reason orthodox Jews do. It all stems from men’s fear of women’s sexuality and power. Women are stronger and will always outperform a man sexually. That is a biological fact. Men always feel inadequate sexually from a dominator role model. If they worship the feminine there is no need to repress women. 

Be compassionate yes, but all things must be considered in this day and age. Bring in thousands of refugees yes there are many women and children and elders. They will think more highly of Westerners more likely if you treat them with kindness. But they do need to abide by the Western liberal laws established in Canada.. It is pretty logical. We will not bow down to their god or ways of doing things and they should not expect us to. We will tolerate others co-existing with us with secular religious beliefs in public. You can go to your mosques and keep your religious values in your own home and you must respect others religious beliefs.  Your beliefs do not reflect on public school sex education.  The Lord’s prayer was taken out of public schools many years ago. No one should be marked by their religion. That isn’t so hard to do is it?

If you are compassionate out of white guilt, then you many be guilty and acting out of “idiotic” compassion.”  At some point compassion, a Pisces ideal, is really self-destructive co-dependent martyrdom. It is an addiction and it has been the cultural role-model for 2,000 years in Christianity  and is promoted as a romantic ideal, and is rampant.

MAMA MIA CULPA!

The current Saturn square to Neptune in Pisces is to teach us that

PISCES MUST LEARN SATURN’S BOUNDARIES -THERE IS NO FREE LUNCH!

Canada is set to take in 25,000 Syrian refugees. Canada is a generally tolerant country who has always been open to many immigrants, they need them. We have hardly any people. But there are boundaries that must be upheld in order to honor the values of freedom that we have chosen. They will not be devalued by future generations. Canadians need to do what the Dutch did. You want to come to this country and benefit? Sure we will help you but there is a cost. Majority Muslim refugees  have not lived in cultures with different belief systems. It is foreign to them. 

All Abrahamic religions believe that they are TOP DOG. TOP GOD.

How can that belief system ever respect and tolerate others? It is the very essence and root of the problem of Zionism, the Catholic inquisition and now these Terrorists.

All Muslim refugees and any refugees must agree to abide by our liberal CANADIAN laws which we voted for.
1. Equal rights for women, if your religious laws state otherwise -you will have to stop doing that and receive a cultural re-education.
2. Equal rights for gays. I know your bible considers this a sin, as do some Christians, well then those belief systems must be left at immigration if you want to pass through the gates.

3. Legal abortions.  If your bible says this is immoral. You will have to change your belief systems to integrate. 
3. You must tolerate other peoples religious views. None is superior to another. This is a secular society you can practice your own religion in your home but not in public, no public displays of any religious affiliations should be allowed.
4. children are also not your property to abuse.
5. No female genital mutilation. – sorry that is torture and manipulating women to be docile. 

6. No macho-honour killings. That is murder. 

7. No indoctrinating your children to hate anyone who is not Muslim. 

8. No jihad allowed. That is murder. 

If the majority of the country wants these freedoms for women, gays and secularism . Then every one who comes to that country must agree to live by those rules. Very simple. I don’t know why people think this is racist it isn’t. It is the rites that is always growing and expanding. 

Mocking Jay is a big current hit. Hollywood is always leading us. The woman heroine fights for freedom against totalitarianism. We are in the same state. 

What do you think?

Cardinal Cross in effect, Ottawa shooting by Tara Greene

I am so sad to see the terrible shootings and innocent lives taken in both Ottawa and Quebec in the last few days in my country. Condolences to the families of the slain especially to young Corporal Nathan Cirrillo. I will just look at the chart of the October 22 Ottawa shooting and the city’s founding chart.

I have the chart of Ottawa as a city founded on September 29 1827.

The October 22 occurred just before 10:00 am  at Canada’s National War Memorial in Ottawa where Corporal Nathan Cirrillo was shot by 32-year-old Canadian Michael Zehaf- Bibeau, a Muslim,  with a previous police record. The shooter ran into the Parliament buildings where he fired 30-50 shots before being killed by Seargent at Arms Kevin Vickers ,a veteran. Canada’s capital city was on lock down for 12 hours. It made International news. It is now believed that the shooter acted alone and is not connected to a previous shooting in Montreal by a young man who was also Muslim.

Ottawa shooting October 22 Astrology Tara Greene

Just wanted to have a quick look at whats going on in Ottawa. It was also under the Solar eclipse beams October 23.

You can see from the charts that the planets Pluto and Uranus are in the CARDINAL CROSS effect.

PLUTO in transit is sitting a couple of degrees away from Ottawa’s Natal Neptune at 13 + degrees Capricorn in the City’s own 12th house. What does this mean?

PLUTO

rules death, Plutocracy, fascism, power, Terrorists, control, secrets, war, slander, violence, terrorism, spying, armies. Pluto in Capricorn is literally corporate structures, historical buildings.

NEPTUNE  

rules religion, and the 12th house is the house of hidden enemies, illusion, delusion, fantasy, addictions, drugs, oil, and by liaison oil rich countries.

Pluto is also opposite to Ottawa’s natal Saturn at 19 + degrees Cancer in the 6th house but on the cusp of the 7th.  

SATURN

is also death, limitations, restrictions, order, time, testing, obstacles. Saturn is Father time, all Patriarchal religions and structures, the army, defenses, all organizations, well-disciplined structure.  

Saturn in Cancer is the history of the family, the country, nurturing, emotional safety,  home. 

PLUTO in Capricorn in conjunction to Neptune  and square to Saturn has caused the destruction of  the feeling of safety and national security in this country. Canada has always felt SAFE.

URANUS in ARIES is in the 2nd house of resources, money, values. URANUS is exactly square to Ottawa’s Natal Neptune in Capricorn and is also square to Saturn in Cancer forming a T- square.

URANUS is chaos, radicalism, change, revolution, freedom, electronics, the internet. 

Uranus is also widely opposed to Mercury in Libra which rules communications, and Jupiter in Libra which is International peace, justice, education, religion, fairness,which are in the 8th house of others money, resources, death, inheritance.

 URANUS and PLUTO form a GRAND CARDINAL cross to Ottawa’s natal planets which evoked these sad realities at this time. These two planets which created the 60’s have just changed the safety game and the way our National Security will work from now on.

I have heard that PM HARPER has rushed through an undemocratic surveillance law while in the “terror” of these single lone ” self- radicalized” shooters.  I cannot stand that Harper and his oil tar sand billionaire environmental murderers and his fundamentalist Christian beliefs are exploiting this. He has personally ruined Canada’s  once honorable reputation as a non violent non-intervention country.. 

Tsk Tsk Canada being the U.S. hand maiden and blow job giver. Canada used  to stand alone. This smacks of the same bullying and stealing of democracy as is happening in the U.S.

Canada has always been a nice country. We do always say I am sorry even if it isn’t our fault. We don’t allow citizens to own guns except by registry.  We’ve had universal health care for 60 years. 

Canada has always had an open door policy to refugees and allows 300,000 new immigrants into the Country every year. Some of that is a good thing. I do not wish to see  democratic rights infringed upon because of  this “opportunity” to create a further police state to protect citizens freedoms.  Protecting Peace loving, law-abiding, integrated to Canadian values citizens.  These groups,whoever they may be, Jewish, Christian, Muslim, anti-abortionists whatever that state that they will kill and terrorize innocent people who are not -whatever  their belief systems are have no place living in Canada.  Canada must not support and aid the very people who wish to destroyed peace, freedom and sanity in the name of liberalism and equal rights. It is  feeding a cancer.  Also the Conservatives downsized the budget for mentally ill personsThe times have changed and require different responses. It is very complex.

I wish we could start all over with a totally secular country and policy. Like John Lennon’s song Imagine. Religion would be a quaint antiquated archaeology. 

 Just as the Dutch did when Van Gogh’s grandson was killed by a radical Muslim. Holland in its Liberal sanity immediately set rules to every person  immigrant and otherwise that if they did not want to abide by the freedoms that the Dutch wished to live by such as gay rights and women’s rights, sexual and drug legality, and if they did not speak the Native tongue they would have to be deported. It is simple straightforward logical. As you would discipline a child with proper behaviours.

Canada has to decide what it stands for. What its values are. What does the True North strong and free mean these days?

Bill Clinton weighs in on Rob Ford crack cocaine scandal on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ | CP24.com

Bill Clinton weighs in on Rob Ford crack cocaine scandal on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ | CP24.com.

I was watching Kimmel last night.  Its was quite amazing to see former President Clinton, himself no stranger to scandal, say that Toronto Mayor Rob Ford ” has absolutely destroyed all stereotypes about Canadians.”  Thanks Rob. What can we do to repay you? All PR is not necessarily good PR.

Are tourists thronging to Toronto looking for crack pipes in every alley now?

I predicted that Mayor Rob Ford {who I absolutely detested from before the time he was elected mayor}  will  be arrested, busted and put in jail and not be around for re-election as Toronto mayor later in 2014.

I am not Patriotic but thanks Rob for ruining Canada’s squeaky clean, NICE folks of the world reputation. I was kinda proud of that in an aw shucks Canadian sorta back bacon way.

You aren’t a real Canuck anyway Rob Ford -you never say SORRY, or eh.

Between your renegade druggy, swearing, poor white trash in rich fatness persona and Conservative Right wing PM Stephen Harper, Canada’s reputation has gone down the tubes as fast as the Alberta Tar Sands has tarnished our ecological and peace maker  status.

Well so it goes as old Kurt Vonnegut used to say.

Clinton was in fine form. I have always admired his persona and his totally symmetrical face. He looks better now than he used to, he’s become a vegan.

I live in this embarrassing town now. It’s actually quite a great city in a lot of ways. As for name destiny. Toronto, or TRAWNA as the natives say, is nicknamed Hogtown. And Rob Ford sure looks like the literal mayor of hogtown. So be careful what you refer to yourself as.

And be careful what you wish for to.

Luck be a LADY tonight Marlon Brando Guys and Dolls 

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford,crack head,eh? Astrology from Tara Greene

Well Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is personally destroying my home town city’s reputation in the world. There is no class in “world class city”  Toronto’s dreams on the world’s stage now. I have been disgusted by Mr Ford since he was elected in October 2010. How?  By  outlying Conservative suburbanite’s as a backlash to the downtown core of multicultural Liberal Toronto urbanites.

You may not know it but Toronto’s nickname is HOGTOWN and I find Mr. Ford’s behavior to embody that moniker totally. He says misogynist and racist things on camera.

THE GREAT WHITE NORTH has taken on a whole new significance.

Great white North Toronto Tara Greene

SCTV’s Bob and Doug Mackenzie  Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas 1980

The evolution of Hosers from 20th century to snow blowers in the 21st.

Mr. Ford allegedly caught on video with a crack pipe in his hands. Somali drug dealers showed it to two Toronto newspaper reporters and John cook from Gawker on an iphone. Their are asking for $200,000 to hand it over and Gawker, a U.S. company has a  fundraising campaign to get the sum together.- see link below

The Somali drug dealers for some reason aren’t being questioned or arrested for selling illegal drugs and were interviewed saying they want the money so they can leave Toronto for the “promised lands” of Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s tax-free oil sands of Alberta and start a clean new life allegedly, or sell more crack to a rich and bored audience.

One of Mr. Ford’s former “buddies” another Somali fellow was shot dead in a gangland shoot out in Toronto in March.  Mr. Ford has become a household name for all the wrong reasons.

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford crack scandal

Jon Stewart spent 6 minutes of TV time totally lambasting the former football coach.

Jimmy Kimmel also produced a staged Interview with an actor posing as the Toronto Mayor

Jay Leno also mentioned it and said its’ because “there’s not a lot to do in Toronto.”

I beg to differ- Toronto is Heaven according to Michael Moore, and is the only city with 130 different ethnic groups living in relative peace in a GTA of  over 6,000,000 people,  it’s now the 4th largest city in North America.

This is not the first time Ford has been in trouble, he’s already fought many charges of being drunk, rerouting public transit for his football team, having his photo taken with a Neo Nazi, caught calling Asians “orientals” and saying racist comments in public. Walking right into a camera.  Talking on his cell phone and driving which is illegal.

I predicted Rob Ford’s win in October 24 2010 and briefly went over his astrology chart you can read that here http://www.taratarot.com/id177.html

Here’s a surrealist image of Rob Ford’s defense, after French artist Rene Magritte.

For Americans and others who don’t speak French, Canada’s “other ” official language.

It says  “This is not a crack pipe.”

My interview by The Toronto STAR newspaper on Mayor Rob Ford’s future on December 31 2012   see it on my website http://www.taratarot.com/id1.html

Lets look at Bob’s current astrology transits

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford Astrology Tara Greene

I’ve intuitively Rectified Rob Ford’s chart as there  is no known birth time.

He looks very Taurus like to me, so I’ve put that sign as his Ascendent and guess what? Planet NEPTUNE planet of addicts, snake oil salesmen, deluded, secretive, glamour seeking individuals have this aspect and it is sitting in his 7th house of “others.” The recent Solar Eclipse at 19 degrees Taurus would have fallen across his Ascendant /Descendent axis, the horizon line.

Transiting Jupiter in Gemini is nearing a 90 degree square to his North and South nodes in PISCES/Virgo. Jupiter rules the HIGHER law- no pun intended. I mean Sacred Law, the true justice not false corrupt justice. This is a karmic face the law for your past injustices. Seems perfect timing to me.

Jupiter is also squaring his Natal PLUTO JUPITER URANUS conjunction in Virgo.  That powerful Trinity spells out a power crazed big risk taker, who thinks he can do whatever he wants, is above the law, is so full of himself, conceited, Psychopathic.

Rob is also having his SATURN opposition which is also a get caught in your tracks holding the bag kind of aspect. Happens every 14 years or so.

Rob has a very difficult aspect at his birth, Mercury planet of thinking in GEMINI,Retrograde,which it rules, so its  indecisive, immature, irresponsible, usually labelled as learning disabled, is opposite  Mars also  RETROGRADE in Sagittarius which makes the usual truth teller a man who trips on his own words. Retrograde Mars in Sagittarius means abuse of the Law. This is a karmic aspect, his thinking and actions aren’t congruous. This man is not conscious and therefore  very dangerous.

The Lunar Eclipse on May 24 is opposite  his Mercury in Gemini and in square to his Natal Chiron, the wounded healer.  His double talking is as the Canadian comedian Russel Peters says “Someone’s gonna get a hurtin’.”

NEPTUNE PLANET OF ADDICTIONS delusion, illusions, glamour, secrets, is SQUARING-HARD Rob’s Sun. Neptune in his  natural 11th house of wishes hopes and dreams has turned in his delusions of grandeur from a Pipe DREAM into a PIPE NIGHTMARE.

I think I will rename him SPONGE BOB Square Crack.

He is turning only 44 in a few days, A Master number, 4  being the number  of Power in the Tarot. THE KING or Emperor. The opposite side of the King is THE FOOL. He is making a huge fool of himself and this city.

Oh well, so it goes as Kurt Vonnegut used to say in Slaughterhouse Five.

Taurus Solar Eclipse May 9/10, take the bull by the horns Astrology

TAURUS SOLAR ECLIPSE May 9/10 2013
The 2nd of three SOUTH NODAL eclipses in a row. 

 spells I-N-T-E-N-S-E!   This is NO BULL.

Solar Eclipses are Super CHARGED NEW MOONS

This annular Solar Eclipse occurs at 19+ degrees TAURUS and will display the beautiful RING OF FIRE, much sought after by eclipse seekers.

eclipse Tara Greene tarot astrology

It will ONLY be visible from western  AUSTRALIA  across most of the Northern Part and passing very close to New Guinea and out over the Pacific Ocean.

No we wont’ see it here in North America or Europe or most of the world. All solar eclipse effects last about a year afterwards.

Australia was also in the shadow pathway of the November 2012 Total Solar Eclipse in Scorpio. The area where the eclipse shadow passes is highlighted.

Tauurs solar eclipse world map

ASTRO-CARTOGRAPHY MAP OF THE WORLD

Where the planetary lines criss cross is where the effects of these planets will be felt the most. Ottawa Canada is one of the prime ares in the world. Moon Sun and Neptune cross here indicating the people and the government will  be at cross purposes especially over false illusions, debt, oil. I believe the PM Harper will be outed.

Cambodia is a highlighted prosperous area for mining and expansion as well as Myanmar. Vietnam are also highlighted for old wounds that need to be healed.

Dangerous areas are Iran, because  URANUS and PLUTO revolutionary atomic energy, religious fanatics, power-hungry Plutocrats cross here. Danger from tsunami’s north of New Guinea and in the Pacific Ocean due west of San Francisco.

Area in Northern Russia receives a lot of  focus as well as called Arkhangelsk, sounds like Archangels. Maybe a prominent shipping port or source of unusual magnetic energy? and  Madagascar.

What does this mean?

How does this eclipse affect you? Where is Taurus in your chart? Everyone’s got the sign of the Bull somewhere. Usually the natural 2nd house of money values romance. This is where the big light is blocked out to allow significant DNA, magnetic shifts in your consciousness in.

TAURUS, the first earth  FIXED sign, is the body and the earth itself.

From ancient times Bulls were worshipped because their horns re-created the pattern of the Moon, waxing and  waning between their horns. Taurus is Feminine, the goddess. It is sensual, practical, resourceful. It can be too stubborn and inflexible. Taurus, ruled by VENUS,  governs, resources, land, money, all physical things. The New York stock exchange was founded under the sign of the Taurus Constellation. ie. The BULL market. Taurus rules the arts, creature comforts, money, luxury, jewellery, smelling the roses, its romantic, sensual. Gets the job done. Can be lazy.

AUSTRALIA

Why is Australia in the shadow of the Solar Eclipse path? What is the meaning of this?

Australia is the oldest land on the Earth. Literally four and half billion years old. The most ancient Zircon’s which have preserved the first days of earth’s creation come from Western Australia. This discovery changed the way Geologists viewed the earth. The aborigines of Australia are the most ancient record keepers in the world, claiming that their history goes back in their memories 60,000 years. The symbol of Australia’s ancient wisdom and sacred red rocks is of honouring the earth HERSELF. Those who are aware can tune in and read these ancestral records.

On May 10 “at 6:31am on May 10, 2013, those gathering in the area will see the sun will emerge into view from beyond the east-northeast horizon. It will first resemble a pair of lobster claws and then when in full view, a horseshoe with upturned pointed tips. Finally with the dark disk of the Moon appearing to move down as opposed to the Sun moving up and off-centered “ring of fire” materializes, sitting just above the horizon. This wonderfully weird effect lasts 109 seconds, ending when the ring appears to “break” at the Sun’s lower limb. Within minutes the Sun again resembles a horseshoe, but now the pointed tips are directed downward.” – Guy Ottewell

Thanks to Carol Ann Ciocco at Galactic Free Press for some inspirational ideas I have included.

The eclipse will pass Papua New Guinea where it is 2013 and they are “BURNING witches!” Then over the Solomon Islands where Gay rights are severely prohibited and punishable.

The Eclipses’ shadow is highlighting how the Divine Feminine energies are being dishonoured.

All of these repressive Feminine and human rights energies are ANTI FEMININE, ANTI-GODDESS Anti-VENUS.  Nature, the earth, the stars and the Feminine were worshipped since the beginning of human awareness on this planet 60,000 years ago up until around 5-7,000 years ago.  So it was only in the last say 1/8 th of this cycle that the Patriarchy separated out from honoring the earth, the Great Mother and split off the mind from the heart, scorned and denied women, separated sex from nature and the true obvious cellular knowing that we are all born of woman, are all one with nature, all life forms and the earth is our mother.

VENUS the planet of LOVE, has recently re-appeared from her Underworld journey on MAY 6 appearing as the beautiful EVENING STAR. She is at ZERO degrees GEMINI on MAy 9/10 indicating  brand new communications, ideas and thinking about love, values, beauty and resources.  Venus in Gemini indicates seeing beyond apparent duality, unifying the opposites.

PLANETARY ASPECTS

Taurus Solar eclipse Tara greene

The Eclipse has asteroid Athena exactly conjunct the Sun and the Moon. The Greek city of Athens is dedicated to the Goddess of wisdom. Yes Greece will be highlighted for the next 6 months to a year because of this.

The Eclipse has Mars and Mercury in Taurus surrounding and conjunct the South Node. Indicating that taking our time to thoroughly use mind and body together, helps us release the past.

The Sun Moon Athena Mercury Mars South Node are also bunched up with dwarf planet Sedna who functions as a Goddess orbiting far beyond Pluto who opens a spiritual gateway to Higher dimensional realities. Sedna is an Inuit, Sea Goddess. Her resurrection into archetypal world consciousness indicates she and we are ready to work in her polar oceanic feeling world. We must take care of the world’s oceans as we all came from the ocean originally.  Asteroid Goddess JUNO squares the SUN and Moon at 15 degrees Aquarius, the very powerful mid-degrees. Juno represents specifically Female wisdom; in AQUARIUS- this is the need to revolutionize women’s subordinate role for the past 2,000 years. FREEDOM, inclusion, leadership, co-operation, respecting people, are all Aquarian hallmarks.

The energy is building to the next Uranus Pluto square on May 20- the old order of things and the new revolution are going head to head, even stronger now. The forces of evolution cannot be stopped.

Red Alert Prince Harry! Your Astrology Forecast from Tara Greene

Prince Harry! Don’t you just love the Royal Ginger?  He gets caught with his pants off in Vegas, .Now he shoots his mouth off about killing Taliban terrorists in Afghanistan and hey its just like a video game!

Prince HArry Astrology Tara Greene

But I’m sort of glad he’s home safe. In Canada where i now live,  Independent since 1867 but Canada is still owned by and loyal to the Queen, since she is on all Canuck bucks- they call the $1 coin LOONIES, and the dollars are weirdly Polymer these days.

Remember the famous line from Mrs Robinson? to a young Dustin Hoffman some old man tells him I have one word for you- “Plastics.”

and I am off myself and running at the mouth speaking of Prince Harry. You gotta love him cause he seems real for a Royal.

But I wanted to check his Astrology chart for looming Terrorist troubles. As he indeed his remarks have taken his life into more danger from Taliban to  the next level.

The ROYAL 3rd in Line chart –

Prince Harry Astrology Tara Greene

Prince Harry Astrology Chart

The handsome Royal Ginger is pretty earthy VIRGO SUN and Mercury, sensual Moon in TAURUS conjunct Ceres and The NORTH NODE

CAPRICRON ASCENDANT & Jupiter in goat land too.

three planets in SAGITTARIUS- loves to travel, foreigners, HOOF IN MOUTH DISEASE – he has Mars, loves pageantry, history, the military pomp, and Uranus and Neptune on the Galactic Center in Centaurville.

VENUS in LIBRA gives him natural charm, good taste, loves the finer things in life and born to it.

Pluto at ZERO degrees of SCORPIO makes him powerful,willfull,controlling.

 SATurn at 12 degrees SCORPIO on his 17 degree SCORPIO MIDHEAVEN – his father has a very strong influence on him and his need for respecting authority, NOTE SATURN opposite the Moon in his chart right on the IC- roots, childhood, mother influence. His FAther and Mother Princess Diana in his chart shown as being totally opposites. I believe Diana was murdered.

Prince Harry is really emotionally very private about his real feelings,  it’s all about his mom, especially with CERES conjunct his Moon,

the Prince is about to mature as he will have his 1st Saturn Return exactly on October 26 2013.As are all of the young men and women in his age group.

THE REPERCUSSIONS

TALIBAN call Prince HArry Crazy and vow to kill him

If I were Prince HARRY I would strongly take- LEARN TO HANDLE MYSELF WITH MORE DECORUM LESSONS

HOW DANGEROUS IS IT?   VERY!

PLUTO LORD OF DEATH is going to Cross PRINCE HARRY”S ASCENDANT MARCH 13!!!! RETROGRADE OVER IT MAY 14

then again Jan 3 2014,Retrograde again  AUG 15 2014, Oct 30, 2014 for the last time.

THAt’s 5 hits!

Saturn  Conjunct Saturn up in his oh so public sector is another danger to his life

Saturn crosses his MID HEAVEN M.C. on  November 30 2013 and  June 28 2014,

 AUGUST 12 2014.  THAT SAME DATE is very close to PLUTO CONJUNCT HIS ASCENDANT

MID AUGUST 2014 is a very VERY VERY DANGEROUS FOR HIM.

MR BIG MOUTH_ JUPITER STILL RETROGRADE SINCE Oct 4/5 2012 will turn DIRECT on JAN 30 @ 6 degrees 20 minutes GEMINI

Jupiter ruler of Foreigners, airplanes, religious fanatics, ruler of Sagittarius

crosses Harry’s CHIRON early MARCH- expanding the Wounded healer aspect. One can get wounded too.

CHIRON BY transit  is now square to Harry’s NAtal CHIRON and his Natal URANUS IN Sagittarius too.

TRANSLATED AS – He is vulnerable through opening one’s mouth too much to a  sudden attack by religious foreigners..

Jupiter opposes his natal URANUS in Sagittarius- Uranus is revolutionary religious fanatics, airplanes, atomic bombs etc. also in March.

JUPITER opposite his Natal Mars in Sagittarius in Late April –

Jupiter expands whatever it touches, opposite Mars is attack, anger, frustration

JUPITER ALso crosses  Harry’s Descendant mid – August =he is in a JUPITER/PLUTO opposition on his horizontal Axis.

URANUS will also be moving up to 8 degrees Aries and also SQUARE HARRY”S ASCENDANT DESCENDANT.

Expect unexpected attacks! Harry has a lot of planets in the 8th house.

IN JUNE Neptune planet of spirituality, delusion, illusion, drugs, addictions moves up to 5 degrees PISCES and is exactly opposes his Natal MERCURY, He must be very careful with alcohol, also could be poisoning, or being gassed. AGAin being careful about his Communications which could easily be misinterpreted with Neptune there.

The 8th house itself is a Scorpio related House, of death, secrets, power struggles, inherited wealth, sex, control.

Many planets in the 8th house is supposedly a sign of sudden death in the old textbooks.

That’s a lot of power! Jupiter in Cancer is need for emotional security, home, mother- could also mean some very dark revealings about his Mother Princess Diana’s death which again I feel she was murdered by the Royal Family.

Harry could also fall deeply in love at this time Jupiter will square his Venus in Libra in September. He becomes an Uncle in the summer and this will expand his yearning and memories of his mother.

PRINCE Harry’s North Node at 29 Taurus is conjunct the Pleiades the 7 weeping sisters.

SOUTH NODE At 29 SCORPIO is very intense, he has seen a lot of death, destruction, torture, held power or been destroyed by those in power before. He holds those memories unconsciously.

He is very romantic deep down Neptune in Sagittarius square his Virgo sun.

Harry has no Retrograde planets except for Chiron,there is a freedom in that.

And he has his Saturn Return too! Whewh a very powerful fated year for the Young Prince Indeed.

Would someone please ship this blog post to the Prince to ease my conscience.

Learn ASTROLOGY the E-Z WAY,music of the stars from Tara Greene

LEARN ASTROLOGY the E-Z way!

I was inspired under a PISCES MOON, on a day with a NEPTUNE, ruler of Pisces conjunct the MOON = very inspirational and creative, rules music, to teach Astrology through POP Music.Why not use a song everyone knows to learn the keywords for a SIGN!

Actually the inspiration sprang from my 5th and last day of teaching Mystical Magical Arts tools such as Tarot, Astrology, Dream work, Ceremony and ritual at the Grail Springs Spa in Bancroft Ontario September 2012.

I was about to give each person in my group of students’ information on where their Moon sign was. I was suddenly inspired to say You guess – “Let’s play “Name your Moon.” and it turned in to a fun game. Are emotionally overly sensitive?- passionate, spontaneous?-feel things physically? or are you emotionally detached, analytical?

“A Case of You” written  by Joni Mitchell – Pisces KEY WORDS will be Underlined!

fish wine astrology recipes

Just before our love got lost you said
“I am as constant as a northern star” 
And I said “Constantly in the darkness 
Where’s that at?
If you want me I’ll be in the bar” 

On the back of a cartoon coaster 
In the blue TV screen light 
I drew a map of Canada 
Oh Canada 
With your face sketched on it twice 
Oh you’re in my blood like holy wine 
You taste so bitter and so sweet 

Oh I could drink a case of you darling 
Still I’d be on my feet 
oh I would still be on my feet

Oh I am a lonely painter 
I live in a box of paints 
I’m frightened by the devil 
And I’m drawn to those ones that ain’t afraid

I remember that time you told me you said
“Love is touching souls” 
Surely you touched mine 
‘Cause part of you pours out of me 
In these lines from time to time 
Oh, you’re in my blood like holy wine 
You taste so bitter and so sweet 

Oh I could drink a case of you darling 
And I would still be on my feet 
I would still be on my feet

I met a woman 
She had a mouth like yours 
She knew your life 
She knew your devils and your deeds 
And she said 
“Go to him, stay with him if you can 
But be prepared to bleed” 

Oh but you are in my blood 
You’re my holy wine 
You’re so bitter, bitter and so sweet

Oh, I could drink a case of you darling 
Still I’d be on my feet 
I would still be on my feet

Comprende? Your feetback please

does CANADA OH Canada fit in with the Pisces theme do you think?
