Feeling tired? Mars Retrograde Astrology tonic advice

I’m So TIRED by The Beatles

I started writing this article on Saturday night and what with D.S.T. I got too tired and couldn’t finish.

Yes Mars went Retrograde March 1st on a New moon in Libra and Saturn went Retrograde in Scorpio on March 2 but I won’t talk about Saturn right now.

Mars retrograde takes all the spunk out of all men and sucks up all forward moving  energy, much like a Black Hole was supposed to do.

Mars = Sex and Retrograde it’s not happening. So enjoy the break. Being celibate is a necessary spiritual training. ALL RETROGRADES ARE GOOD necessary healthy Rx. Medicines. 

No PORN for  11.5 weeks. Do it as a sacrifice and see what happens in your life.

Retrograde planet periods are TRICKSTER energy. You can learn a lot by NOT DOING what you usually do or take for granted.

Mars has pulled the plug. I felt and saw it right away. It was rather scary. DID YOU FEEL IT TOO?

It’s S L O W culture time. Especially with Saturn Retrograde and Pluto joins in awhile.

SLOW down, its good for you. BABY now you’re moving way too fast.

SLOW DOWN by The Beatles written by Larry Williams 1964

It affects all LIBRA’s most directly, but also all ARIES and SCORPIO peeps as MARS is their  planetary ruler.

Wherever you have the sign of LIBRA and everyone does- from 27 degrees Libra- 9 degrees in your Birth chart that’s Mars retrograde territory till May 19.

Mark off the house or houses and all the planets that will get a conjunction, square or opposition by MARS retro. Those planets, angles etc. energy gets affected too.

As Libra is the sign of RELATIONSHIPS expect OLD FLAMES to re-appear.

You are also re-evaluating your relationships.

 MARS in LIBRA Retrograde makes us very very indecisive.

I have Mars in Libra in my Natal chart so I live with this aspect. Should I or  shouldn’t I? Just like a Mercury Retrograde its NOT a great time to INITIATE, Aries middle name – anything new. But a great time to finish things off. 

What the blazes? you may well ask Aries..

ARIES, your ruling planet makes your energy BACKFIRE. Sucks it up leaving you feeling unfamiliarity enervated. Backdraft that’s what it is.

What me tired? You hellfire, endless balls of energy aren’t used to this. Well learn to take it easy for 7 weeks for a change. Recharge. R-E-S-T. RESIST, REflect, renew, reinvent yourself.

OY POOR SCORPIO’s

Mars as your ruler and SATURN in SCORPIO is like DOUBLE TROUBLE DEMENTORS SUCKING OUT your  life force.

All happiness and sexual energy is gone. You feel cold, barren, depressed, unmotivated, dispassionate, blasé, filled with ennui. You know how Scorps obsess and get in those black goth depressions….

Is that all there is?

Tip # 1 TRY A LITTLE TENDERNESS

Not to mention that MARS is a cross dressing transsexual with MARS in VENUS’ S house of LIBRA for 5 3/4 months in 2014.

Rebalancing the inequality between the sexes is very important right now.

Men need to let go of being in power over, aggressive, domineering, unconscious, competitive aggressiveness. Men suffer  from the Patriarchy too. The unfeeling uncaring tough macho model is mainly inhuman. Men have left their own feminine side, theirs souls, anima, alone, alienated. They have left themselves cut off from life, from love, from vulnerability the great strength, unfeeling, cold, calculating, dishonouring the feminine everywhere. Men have an unfathomable deep wound from bashing the Great Mother and they know that somewhere. 

Men chose death over life, hatred over respect and fear over Love 5,000 years ago and made it an institution. Time for a change. That is what these CARDINAL GRAND CROSSES ARE ALL ABOUT.

This PLANETARY alignment is a DIVINELY orchestrated opportunity

for males to reclaim their own feeling nature, to cry, to be vulnerable, to commune with other men, their brothers, to support and protect women. To stop seeing them as objects, chattel, things to be used for their own immature, egotistical, sexual satisfaction alone. To stop fearing homosexuals, transgender and effeminate men, to open themselves up to experience more of their own nature, which always has a masculine and feminine part. It allows creativity to flow.

Jared Leto Astrology Tara Greene

Jared Leto /Rayon  from Dallas Buyers Club

Masculine and Feminine sides of men 

Like Jered Leto winning the Academy Award for playing Rayon in Dallas Buyers Club. The talented, beautiful Capricorn rock star, , is into Astrology and I am sure he did his transits in advance knowing that the stars were aligning exactly now to help him. As above so below. I’ll check into the fascinating Mr. Leto’s chart soon.

Try a little cross-dressing, explore your feminine side guys. It’s ok. Women need to also see men in a new way. They are hooked on the old macho hero. The modern hero is chivalrous, expresses his feelings, shares household chores, cooking, nurturing the children and respects feminine strength and her need to do her own thing.

This vacuuming up of all the testosterone on the planet makes macho posturing guys furious little boys throwing angry temper tantrums. Mr. Putin anyone?

MARS RETROGRADE in LIBRA is about letting yourself be less than NICE.

You know those perfectionist seeking Socialites Librans? Mars Retrograding allows you to cross over and  allows your shadow side to come out. The work of Debbie Ford in THE DARK SIDE OF THE LIGHT CHASERS was very important in owning your own shadow, your shame, faults, what you worst fear would be, the worst anyone could say or do to you in public. Use this time to feel it. What would be so terrible? 

REhearse it, feel it, allow it, let it go. =FREEDOM.

IS THAT ALL THERE IS? Peggy Lee  

Mars Retrograde, sex no no’s by Tara Greene

I re-wrote the emphasis of this article. Mercury Retrograde and about Mars too.

2014 is a big RETROGRADE  year. Mars & Venus both Retro cha-cha this year.

We are going over a lot of old issues. Especially RElationship ones. We are reinventing them totally.

The energies feel pretty intense right now. Don’t they? 

They will get hotter & more INTENSE approaching the GRAND CARDINAL EXACTNESS in APRIL on the 22nd.  

This may the BOMBSHELL aspect DAY of the year and a huge climax of the CARDINAL T-square energy which has been building since 2008-2010.

Lets talk about RETROGRADE’S first.

We’ve already had Venus retrograde. We’re in the middle of  MERCURY Retrograde till Feb 28.

March 1st MARS goes RETROGRADE!!!    MARS is S E X. Traditional all  Males, but it is all LIBIDO energy.

Literaly it means No sex, celibacy, Not tonight honey for 80 days.

Mars re Ararranging himself @ 27 degrees 31 minutes of Libra; then turning DIRECT May 19 @ 9 degrees 2 minutes Libra.

No Pornography Astrology

Mars only does this once every two years.

CHECK out in which house or houses, MARS will be pulling the plug on your sex life and outwards activities on.

That’s 80 days of learning to be in relationship but  non-sexually. I think this is TRULY ENLIGHTENING.

Take this special opportunity to embrace being fully alone and to learn who you partner really is. To relate without having sex. To be friends and not lovers. Old fashioned. It is a re-education for men and women.

Practising celibacy harnesses sexual and spiritual energies so they can be transmuted to a higher level after Mars goes DIRECT on May 19. I will be teaching a workshop just after that May 23-25 at the Grail Springs Spa in Bancroft Ontario.

The backstep my friends, for all MEN literally, and all things ruled by Mars.

For the ECONOMY in general.

Especially all ARIES peeps and Scorpio too. MARS rules your signs. DEAD STOP!

Try stopping a Scorpio from being sexual. Right.

PLUS HEY SCORPIOS your RULING PLANET SATURN TURNS RETROGRADE  MARCH 2.

But we’ll get to that in another article OK.

MARS is the life sparking Masculine principle itself.

Mars is PURE ENERGY, phallic power, everything related to Fire, guns, explosions, volcanoes, lightning, solar power, bombs, WAR, ignitions danger. The Big Honcho.

Mars is ACTION! In Libra Mars is already in a weakened state, debilitated and weak.

DO NOT initiate anything during MARS RETRO. Literally NO ACTION.

It is a time of sucking energy in. Inaction, energy will feel slow, inhibited. This can build up an internal heat and anger that is used to moving outwards, like a big TEMPER TRANTRUM or a coitus interruptus, an orgasm forced to stop.

Markets crash. Relationships too. Do plan to retreat. LET YOUR PEACE FLAG FLY. SURRENDER.

Stock up. Rest, renew, reflect, reinvent. REmake. Remodel. 

Mars is effectively castrated, defenseless during this time period, vulnerable.

MARS IS RECEPTIVE  now. It is like the Chinese TAO. Inaction, patience, wasting no energy.

As Sun Tzu says in THE ART OF WAR  

“The greatest victory is that which requires no battle.”

Mars will be transformed and transmuted archetypaly during these 80 days.  Mars is being turned inside out and backwards, learning to be a man without being macho. It’s time is for cultivating peaceful warrior energy. Making peace with the inner masculine who may have hurt you. Who may be a tyrant, rapist, your father, boss, the Archetypal President, Pope , BIG DADDY. That Machismo is being made impotent now. NO amount of VIAGRA is going to get those dicks up now, figuratively speaking.

A man without his MACHO. What happens then? It would be nice to wake up and find all the masculine weapons of destruction vaporized wouldn’t it? 

Mars is learning how to become receptive to the FEMININE. He is after all in Venus’s Boudoir for 7 months this year

MARK THIS DATE. MAY 11 Mother’s Day  no less,

Venus is at 9 degrees of ARIES in Mars’ sign exactly opposite MARS at 9 degrees  Libra.

This is a very powerful DAY, an in initiation of the Masculine into a new legacy of equality with the FEMININE. The Moon also initiates and conjuncts Mars and squares all the Cardinal Cross Planets as well.  A day of ALCHEMY, of the Masculine and Feminine coming together in balance.

We will see this MARS RETROGRADE energy filter down from the Highest levels. Men who have done and are brewing and doing their Soul work, who are becoming conscious of the destructive Patriarchal domination model and are stepping down from that terrible hierarchy. Those men and women who are open and learning and growing in consciousness with their own ANIMA, their own Inner Feminine Soul, and binding it in honor of the FEMININE and the EARTH HERSELF are making that SACRED MARRIAGE within will step forward to help move the energy in this Grand Cross. The Cross is always the symbol of the 4 directions, matter, the world, the foundation.

We are in the midst of creating  a new way of being in the world. All Women have an inner ANIMUS, Male figure as well. Women need to regain their Feminine strength again as the SOURCE as the QUEEN BEE, {that’s why Lorde’s song is so popular BTW}  and honor Feminine values which  shifts the inner and outer Masculine.

Pornography will be viewed as misuse of sacred sexual energy. Women being treated as chattel will be over, violence against women will end. The men have to see how their denial of, desperate need for and fear of the Feminine has destroyed women and themselves. This is a big high  vision I am putting forth. 

I’ve been thinking and thinking about the  GRAND CARDINAL CROSS CLIMAX in APRIL. Remember that this is the energy that was planted by PLUTO and URANUS in conjunction in VIRGO in the later 60’s which Created the PEACE LOVE FREE SEX SRUGS AND ROCK AND ROLL GENERATION. THE SEEDS SPROUT NOW.

X  marks the spot, The X configuration is a TREASURE MAP.

HOW DO we find the buried treasure in this? Most of my clients lives are falling apart in varying degrees, horrible divorces, deaths, loss of jobs, visa’s, health issues. Every person who’s planets fall directly in the X configuration, myself and my husband included are going through this. You can’t stop an avalanche.  Lets decode the info.

PLUTO in CAPRICORN- the PLUTOCRACY, fascist governments, secrets, power, wealth,the SUPER RICH, secret institutions.  Pluto in CAPRICORN is directly opposite the United States SUN, it’s idenity. THIS HAS NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE in the U.S. history. It’s unprecedented. PLUTO is death, rebirth, regeneration. 

URANUS IN ARIES-

A new revolution, technology, freedom, liberation, a new cycle of development. Squaring PLUTO, the power for better and worse. 

JUPITER IN CANCER is EXACTLY on the U.S. Sun-

This is the Amercan people themselves, the breadbasket, women, food, children, well being, housing, nursing, family values, emotional insecurity. Homeland security, literally. Jupiter is optimism,esoterically the planet of the higher master teachers. 

Mars in Libra Retrograde-

Reneging on agreements, no peace, reigniting wars, emasculating men, peace negotiations, angry about injustice, action to change laws, Libra is the scales of Justice. MARS rules ARIES so he overules Uranus now.

A lot to think about….so many scenarios.

PEOPLE will be reacting. I have seen civil war breaking out in the U.S. Mars is guns literally. Mars Retro is taking peoples right to bare arms away. 

Let me know your thoughts.
