The North Node of the Moon moves backwards through the Zodiac every 18+ months. These Nodes are extremely important as they create Solar and Lunar elcipses four to five times a year every year. These Nodes are very ancient in Astrology, going back thousands of years. The North Node is called the Dragon’s Head and the South Node, the Dragon’s Tail. The North Nodes is the Cosmic GPS or North Star energy which symbolizes the collective’s highest spiritual goal. Everyone has their own personal North Node position in their birth chart.

The North Node symbolizes what we need to evolve into like a plant following the sun. The next 18 months under the watery emotional nurturing sign of the Mother indicates women being a guiding force. The Divine Feminine energy is returning. The protection of children and families, real estate {homeland} food safety and Water will be primary. The Sign of Cancer is the 4th sign and signifies the I.C. Latin for Imum Coeli meaning “bottom of the sky.”

The Sign of Cancer in the tarot is Card #7 The Chariot

This card indicates the need for understanding cycles, there are 7 days of the week, chakras, a time for the tide to rise and ebb. This card relates to the need for emotional and psychic protection. It is also a card of Victory. We need to feel that we are emotionally in the driver’s seat not being spun around on the wheel of karma.

If you have your North Node in Cancer or your South Node in Cancer at birth these next 18 months will be pulling you to make major choices about family, your ancestors, your own family, childhood, nurturing, home, and what makes you feel safe emotionally as your highest goal.

The 4th house/ Cancer influence means people will be increasingly working from home, mothers will prefer to stay at home, rather than work outside or at all. No more fast Foods. People will be opting for a more simple home cooked traditional ” comfort food” with memories from their childhoods. Traditional feminine values will be strong. Water and food purity will be important. Respecting your ancestors and roots will be honored.  A more traditional time of sharing feelings and nurturing each other. Homes will be simpler and warmer. 

The last times the North Node was in Cancer was 2000-2001, 1982-1983, 1962-1964, and 1944-45. This is a general rule you need to look up your specific North Node position. 

Water signs Scorpio and Pisces will get beneficial aspects from the transiting trines. Look at where the entire 30 degrees of Cancer is in your natal chart. Remember the North Node moves from 30 degrees down to zero from the last to the beginning of the sign.

This is just a brief intro I’ll follow up with more details soon.

Elections November 6 2018 Astrology

Mid-Term elections in the U.S. are very important in the continuing evolving revolutionary saga of the United States. 

The Mid-Term elections in the United States are held every two years in the middle of a Presidential term. Members of the U.S. Congress are up for election including all 435 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives and 35 of the 100 Seats in the U.S. Senate. These elections are important because whichever party holds the majority in Congress can set the national legislative agenda. Republicans have the majority in both the House of Representatives and the Senate but are currently projected to lose the House.

Let’s look at how these midterms will turn out based on Astrology. The chart is set to 11:00 pm EST in WASHINGTON because 8:00 pm is the close of the west coast voting poll stations.

Mid term elections Astrology tara Greene

The Sun and Moon are conjunct in Scorpio, it’s the day before a New Moon indicating a culmination cycle. The Moon always symbolizes the public and it’s moods and women specifically. Sun and Moon in the 8th sign is an emotional feminine sign of power struggles, sex, revenge, obsession, endings, money, psychology, secrets, death and rebirth. Given the recent anger of millions of women who were outraged by Judge Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court appointment after Fords’ testimony that he sexually abused her was ignored they felt. We can see the women coming out in full force to defeat the Republicans. Moreover, the Sun and Moon are in the 4th house of roots, women, mothering, emotional safety. Women came out en masse to tell their experiences of sexual abuse and risking their own emotional safety to tell their stories and support each other.

Mars, the ruler of Scorpio is in Aquarius at 24 degrees squaring Jupiter at the last most critical 29th degree. This is a hard aspect. Mars in Aquarius is freedom from the past, and anger and rage over any restrictive traditional path. Jupiter expands Mars fighting mad liberating energy. This can work two ways- many Democrats are now acting like they are justified in their anger because the Republicans actions are so restrictive, controlling and traditional. This could backfire as well. Republican men started the poor me men are victims of false rape accusation which is so minimal in reality and totally overlooks and denies the very real Patriarchal male domination of women, blacks and immigrants issues.

This is very chaotic energy as Uranus, ruler of Aquarius is an electrically charg

ed tribal mindset. Mars is also conjunct to the U.S Natal Moon at 27 Aquarius and Jupiter is now squaring that too bringing an even bigger jolt. The Moon in the U.S. July 4, 1776, chart is women, Mom, apple pie and traditional values. No to that.

Venus is Retrograde in Libra at 27 degrees, conjunct Dwarf Planet Ceres opposite URANUS at the High Noon position of 29 degrees Aries and squaring the North Node at 29 CANCER.

This is a very powerful configuration. Venus = women, values, finance, relationships. In her Retrograde phase, Venus is going through a powerful death and rebirth to regain her powers. Venus’s tale of disappearance for 40 days was told in myth by one of the most ancient poems from Mesopotamia, the tale of Inanna, Queen of Heaven, going into the Underworld to visit her dark sister who is bereaved. Inanna was the goddess of love, beauty, sex, desire, fertility, war, justice and political power. Inanna’s consort Dumuzzi who she left on the throne is not mourning his Queen while she is gone. Inanna successfully returns to the Dayworld and to her throne and throws Dumuzzi out, disempowering his arrogance.

CERES is DEMETER in Greek myths and her daughter Persephone was raped into the Underworld by Pluto. When Ceres couldn’t find her daughter her grief and rage did not allow anything to grow on the earth. Eventually, Zeus {Jupiter} steps in and bargains a deal so that Persephone lives every summer with her mother and every winter with her husband Pluto. The very obvious symbolism here of balance being established.

URANUS opposite Venus is a women’s revolution very literally, for their freedom  in public positions of power will rock the establishment. 

North Node enters Cancer today.

The North Node is the highest evolutionary direction, now in Cancer today! The sign of the Mother, women, emotional security, children and food. The U.S. is a Cancerian country. Women’s values, protection of children from trafficking and abuse and women choosing what makes them feel emotionally safe is the current highest direction. Although Trump is waging a good campaign against sex and child trafficking, ignoring women’s sexual abuse issues in the Kavanaugh nomination is most likely a Republican party’s downfall in this election. They will lose many many seats and lots of power and control.

The anger at sexual abuse issues, in general, triggered by Ford’s testimony whether it was true or not, is a tipping point in the return of the Goddess in women’s power. Women’s experiences of being constantly sexually abused not being recognized means women will not support any Patriarchal anything anymore.

CHIRON the Wounded Healer is in a GRAND WATER TRINE

At the 29th degree of Pisces the most karmic degree of our collective soul wounds trining Jupiter Lord of benefits, expansion, and faith, trines the North Node in Cancer.

Water Trines are super feminine emotional energy and Jupiter expands the fever, it will be running high. Women are the wounded ones; ignored, victims, martyrs, given the short end of the stick by the Law. We need to uphold and follow feminine values of compassion for all.

JUNO the Goddess Asteroid of Feminine Genius at 27 TAURUS forms a Finger of God with CHIRON in PISCES and VENUS and CERES in LIBRA

This is another very powerful esoteric symbol of the DIVINE FEMININE exerting resources, values and power { Taurus} and healing itself of its wounds by achieving Justice, the scales of Libra and attempting to rebalance power.

The Sabian Symbol for the 30th degree of CANCER?

A DAUGHTER OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION- you can’t make this stuff up.

The Traditional symbol refers to upholding tradition to my mind this alludes to a new inclusive revolution by women created by them.

Big power struggles on the world’s stage and in personal issues.

The Sun is the Light and Pluto is the Lord of death and rebirth.  

Use the Sun force to light the way in the darkness to bear your shadows, descent and fears. The sun in any sign is always the light and a powerful daylight consciousness. Face the darkness, the unknown and the Void bravely knowing that the Light will always shine. The Void itself is the source of all light.

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.

Sex, power, control Mercury in Scorpio

Mercury in Scorpio October 9- October 30/31.

This is an updated article from October 2017, the last time Mercury was in Scorpio.

 Sex, power and control issues are hotter than hot topics with women speaking out about being raped, sexually abused and assaulted. It is women’s life under a shadowy, power- hungry Patriarchal world where men have dominated women sexually for thousands of years. This is not a secret anymore.

 Sun enters Scorpio on the 23rd in PDT. EDT and GMT joining Venus Retrograde in until the 31st when Venus re-enters her home sign of Libra and Mercury also changes signs. Jupiter is ending his last year in Scorpio in the last degrees also  on November 3rd /4th before entering Sagittarius on Nov 8, 2018. Which is a karmic date. 8/11.

 Halloween is a huge trancing between worlds energy this year. Especially sexy, mentally and romantically and magically oriented.

 In Scorpio A Mercury wired mind communicates its mental needs for sex, power, wealth and control issue. The big essentials. The trickster planet in Scorpio means that our media and messaging will be deep obsessively, intense with the major issues being about all those subjects we can’t let go of but need to.

 TANTRIC SEXUALITY

Tantric sexuality is a very Mercury in Scorpio issue. This is not a current fad. Its an ancient spiritual tradition requiring much yogic and meditation practice. Tantric sex is healing and unites lovers as one physically sexually emotionally and spiritually.

 Dark Minds- Black Ops- Obsessions- Death- Rebirth

We can more easily connect with our own soul’s desires, our psyches and get laser-like insights into our own and other people’s natures.  More sexual secrets will out. 

 Mercury is the MAGICIAN – in the Tarot – thoughts are magic. Mercury is also known as the TRICKSTER indicate how our minds can play tricks on us. It is also the ruler of thieves and merchants. 

It’s the death of old ideas about women’s sexuality that’s happening especially with the recent Kavanaugh appointment in the U.S.

 The Bride and her bachelor- digital photograph by Napoleon Brousseau 1999

 This energy can be used to transform many old emotional blocks be they sexual, poverty, abundance mentality and abundance, power or lack of it and control issues.

 Mercury in Scorpio governs depth psychology, detective work and deep analysis. Good time to do deep excavation in your shadows. Surgeons and people who need very exacting skills need Mercury in Scorpio. This would be an excellent time to get surgery done. Scorpio governs the reproductive organs, any issues you may have in these areas require your attention.

 Under Mercury’s tour of Scorpio it is a more inward, secretive time compounded by Venus retrograde in Scorpio Spend time alone,.

This is an underlying soul mate energy as the 8th sign also symbolizes transforming into “the other.” 

Yes there will be big power struggles over finances banking and underhanded dealings. Politically and economically this can be a fast little roller coaster of changes of CEO’s and heads of state and policies at this time.

Obsession is a major issue which can be positive but potentially hazardous. It can be a beneficial time to look within and uncover your own hidden motivations.  Transformation is Scorpio energy’s highest goal.

 People born with Mercury in Scorpio have very insightful, deep analysis of the world. They can be mesmerizing speakers. Mercury in Scorpio is like a film noir characteristic.

 Scorpio is a fixed sign of phenomenal willpower. If know that you are walking your souls’ path you should be able to create what you want. “Do what thou wilt and harm none.” Is the whole of the Law. Scorpio energy at its darkest uses, abuses, rapes, torture, puts fear into others, manipulates, and plays with S & M. These topics are already hot and getting hotter.

Be careful not to fall under the spell of any ruthless manipulators at this time. Be carefull not to unconsciously sting others or yourself. Use this time for deep inner transformation in yourself and any relationships with power imbalances. Rise like the Phoenix.

 

S & M is a Scorpio thing. I do not believe it is a healthy choice. Pain is not love. Better go get some deep psychoanalysis and transpersonal healing of your own pain and not inflict it on others or yourself. 

 SUICIDE And OBSESSIVE thoughts

Scorpio magnifies all your feelings and thoughts so be careful of getting gobbled up by demons, your own or the very real demonic forces that exist everywhere around us.  Suicidal thoughts and rates may higher. If you feel suicidal please call a suicide hotline and get hep ASAP. Do not keep your pain and shame a secret any longer. to resolve your pain and transmute it and become stronger.
