Daily Inspiration, Castro and more

Its Nov. 26 Moon entered Scorpio early today where we encounter, death, change, transformation and deep shadows and emotions. We get soulful. Its Venus and Pluto and JUPITER in a tight T-square of valuable soul riches versus superficial values. Women’s depth strength and values must be brought in to bring peace, balance and creativity. 

Castro astrology Tara Greene

Fidel Castro died last night at age 90. My family and I visited Cuba about 6 years ago. Canada has always had open relations with Cuba and it was mainly Canadian, European and South American tourists who have vacationed there since they opened to tourism and 49% foreign investments as a way to survive after the fall of Russia in the early 1990’s.  We are very aware of the communist suppression going on and the poverty yet compared to the illiteracy, total poverty, and the difficult feudal impoverished lives Cubans had pre-Revolution they seemed to be doing quite well. We found the Cubans to be quite amazing people, very proud with great spirits. The problem is with free education and health care they have no room to expand. Doctors made less money than those who worked in Hotels. There were police or security guards watching out for everything all the time.  Now there are cell phone and I don’t know what it is like since Americans have been allowed in freely. It felt like it was the safest place I had ever been.  We loved it. 

I was wondering what the astrology chart of a man who had single-handedly fought against America, and at such a close range, and then survived the collapse of Russia and had outlived 638 assassination attempts looked like. So here it is. 

Fidel Castro astrology Tara Greene

The great Communist leader and dictator would of course have to be a LEO, with JUPITER Retrograde in AQUARIUS expanding the higher ideals of the planet of revolution, freedom, and staunch-no backing down, opposite to his naturally the leader Sun. Mercury Retrograde in Leo too. Someone who brings REvolution and redistributes policies. NEPTUNE was also in LEO conjunct to VESTA and his SUN. CASTRO was an idealist, a dreamer, of redistributing the wealth.

Castro was the son of a wealthy landowner, and studied law before creating  a band of fellow revolutionaries to overthrow Batista, Cuba’s dictator who had extensive links to the American mafia and other business interests.

This is an accurate birth time and his Moon was in LIBRA the sign or rebalancing and justice. With Venus in Cancer and Mars in Taurus conjunct to Chiron, Castro really loved his Motherland. He felt her pain and the people’s suffering deeply. He was motivated by altruistic ideals. 

CASTRO’s GEMINI ASCENDANT at the last degree conjunct the POLE STAR

This gives anyone with this aspect incredible charisma, the natural leader, the hub of all. CAstro was an incredible speaker, a salesman who could charm and convince anyone. His speeches are legendary. He has the record for the longest modern speech ever, 7+ hours. He also had this dual nature. Some saw him as a proud papa leadership others his totalitarian dictator side. 

Sun and JUPITER square SATURN in SCORPIO

Scorpio is secrets, crime, the Mafia, laundered money, power, absolute control, stealth, the ability to analyze in great depth, death and rebirth. Castro survived 638 assassination attempts on his life through poisoning, exploding cigars by the CIA numerous times, the mafia,and ex-lovers. “If surviving assassination attempts were an Olympic event, I would win the gold medal.”said Castro. A SUN in LEO Jupiter in AQUARIUS Saturn in SCORPIO T-square would certainly enable anyone to be so strong willed, so detached, so fearless, that they would be pretty much immortal and immune to anything that came at them. 

Also Castro had his NORTH NODE at 15 CANCER conjunct to SIRIUS the immortal and brightest star, conjunct to his NATAL PLUTO exact, squaring his MOON in LIBRA. This is such a KARMIC fated aspect. Very rarely do PLUTO and the NORTH NODE and SIRIUS connect. CASTRO definitely had the mark of being a significant world leader and life changer of millions of people. 

His VENUS in CANCER formed a GRAND WATER TRINE with SATURN in SCORPIO and URANUS in PISCES at 28+ degrees

Yes the grandfather of the Revolution for sure. ONe who wielded total power and control The iron fist in the kid glove.Even though millions of Cubans fled his totalitarian regime Castro brought social security, food, better life expectancy and infant mortality rates to his people. He really felt like he was the benefactor and Good father. URANUS in PISCES at the almost last degree of the Zodiac is very interesting. Indicating Castro was one of the last of his kind and almost completed his karmic incarnations in this lifetime. He was always a controversial figure. 

CASTRO’s death had been talked about for years. His health had been failing since 2008. At his death, it was a good death. Chiron in PISCES right on his MC, the place of worldly fame. The PLUTO- JUPITER- VENUS T-squares exactly on his North and South NODES.  Jupiter and the Moon right on his Natal Moon. He was going to a higher place and back to source which he came in from. An exalted death. Very regal. 

I am not condoning or putting him down. May he RIP. It will be interesting to see how his brother Raoul handles the country. With a recent opening with the U.S. the question is, with Trump vowing to shut down everything Obama did, will he close up the doors with Cuba? Or will Trump see this as a golden opportunity to put up some new hotels in Cuba?

May he RIP. History will tell. As he famously said himself “Condemn me it does not matter History will absolve me. “

QUEEN OF CUPS 

Yemaya Santeria tara Greene

Tarot Lukumi, by Emanuele Noltro & Luigi Scapini

THE QUEEN OF CUPS

In this deck the Queen of cups is based on the Yoruba/Santeria spirituality originally from Nigeria and Benin of West African origin. Santeria is also widely practiced in Cuba, South American and the Caribbean.

Yemaya is the great mother who lives and rules over the seas.  She is also known as Stella Maris and as the Virgin Mary in Catholicism.  We are 70% water just like the earth, so life would not be possible without this Goddess’s waters of life. She is maternal and nurturing but also fierce. Her number is 7 and her day of the week is Saturday which is today. She loves to dance. 

To have such a watery, mermaid-like nurturing oceanic card today indicates the need to stay  in touch with the Feminine feelings and emotions especially when we are in a Masculine Fire moon energy. 

What do you feel today?

The Moon conjunct Uranus energy is very wired, electric, nervous and jumpy. 

Stay in your heart, stay in the flow, It’s all about the ebb and flow, not the bass.

Cuba U.S. relations reborn, Cigars anyone?

In the news- never a dull moment. President Obama announced a new era of relations with Communist Cuba after 56 years. 56 = 8 x 7 which is like a second Saturn return.  Two x 28. The old cold war trade embargoes haven’t worked. The Pope [!]  and Canada were partly involved in facilitating and assisting in an American prisoner being  released. Canada has maintained open trade with Cuba all these years. America will re-open an embassy and Americans will be allowed to travel and bring back Cuban cigars, rum and other goods to the U.S. 

Uranus and Pluto and Saturn are at it again.

CUBA US astrology by Tara Greene

The large chart is the chart for the Republic of Cuba in 1902 when it gained independence from the U.S. and transits of December 17, 2014.

Cuba’s Sun is conjunct to the weeping 7 sisters, the archeo-mythic Pleiades. Also this is ALgol, Medusa’s head or the demon star,the star of dictators. Algol means alcohol in Arabic. The Arabs were famous mathematicians and astrologers. Algol is connected to fear of primal feminine power.

Cuba’s name originally meant “fertile earth” and that’s a great description for a Taurus Sun at 28 degrees also  on the “critical 29th degree.” Cuba would be a most earthy, sensual, stubborn, realistic, creative, musical and resourceful place. 

Cuba’s Moon in Scorpio is conjunct the North Node. The People are the Moon in a country’s chart. They dictate its direction, and they are very emotional, dramatic, intense, soulful, secreted away,controlled, possessive,sexy and transformative. 

Cuba’s Ascendent at ZERO degrees Virgo. The Fixed Star Regulus, star of Kings entered the Constellation Virgo the Goddess since November 2011. Regulus aka Raphael the Archangel is also symbolized by this star which rules the heart chakra. Yes Cuba’s Star is rising and protected by this Angel. The big island is spot on to be a major player in the next segment of evolution as the earth Mother, the Virgin Goddess once again ascends. Cuba will be leading us into ways of living in a more ecologically natural balanced way and to harvest her gifts with respect.

Cuba vacation Astrology

MERCURY, PLUTO, NEPTUNE conjunction in Gemini the 10th house of worldly status.

Cuban would be a nation of extremes. Mercury, Pluto, Neptune in Gemini is a country built on powerful idealism, rhetoric and secret cabals of power. I wont go into Castro’s chart here. Cuba has always worn two faces, two masks. I have been to Cuba and found the people to be very Gemini like, open, charming, innocent exuberant, curious, idealistic and proud of their ability to stand alone in the world. 

Venus at the mid- degree of Aries and Mars is in Taurus. Both planets are debilitated in each others signs and in mutual reception. Women are very strong and independent in Cuba. Mars is action and relates to cars,Mars in Taurus symbolizes the antique preserved cars in Cuba born out of necessity. Mars in Taurus is more passive. It delights in the paradise of the Island. Taurus is indolentdoesnt like change. Cubans  lover of music, dance, creativity and the arts, farming and resourcefulness.

Jupiter in Aquarius symbolizes new ideas, a classless society, communist ideals. The workers {6th house} share the wealth.

Saturn is Retrograde in Capricorn in the 5th house. There is  respect for tradition, the Patriarchy, hard work, working the land. With Saturn Retrograde it symbolizes being  orphaned, or rejected by  various countries over its history. The U.S. Natal Pluto is exactly at this same degree 27 degrees Capricorn. The two countries have a fated intertwined history.

Uranus at 20 degrees Sagittarius Retrograde opposite PLUTO and Mercury show the REVOLUTIONARY higher inspirational nature of Cuba. Its power in the world is its ability to be philisophical,and in taking the high road. 

December 17 2014

The Uranus Pluto square of Monday December 15, sees the two planets transiting exactly on Cuba’s Venus in the 8th house! This is the Scorpio house of rebirth, death, taxes, recycling, of other people’s money. Yes a New revolutionary wave has hit Cuba again. This is invigorating and infuses new technology to its economy, status, values and culture.

Pluto in the 5th house is squaring Venus and also conjunction Cuba’s Natal Chiron, where it is most vulnerable, wounded but which also holds the greatest healing at 14 degrees Capricorn. Big money, corporations and power will start to flow into Cuba from American tourism, new infrastructure, hotels and business ventures which brings rebirth and new life.

Saturn is exactly opposite Cuba’s SUN, changing the serious role of Cuba on the world’s stage. These are sobering heavy realities for Cubans which will be another type of test.. The test will be how much it limits itself and how it retains its history, laws and  ideology as it matures into a new karmic evolutionary stage. Jupiter will also square Saturn and Cuba’s Sun next August.  I believe communist consumerism will work in Cuba the way it has in China. 

Jupiter in Leo in the 12th house is opposite Cuba’s natal Jupiter and squaring its Mars in Taurus in the 9th house. This is always expansive, opportune, good fortune but not openly visible. The heart of the peoples’ will is what will propel Cuba’s future forward. Jupiter is travel, and tourism has saved Cuba. Many players will by jockeying for position. There will be new educational learning curves and much exports of cigars as a status symbol. Jupiter will cross Cuba’s Ascendant next August 13, 2015 that will be  like a butterfly emerging from a long chrysalis stage in its full beauty.

Neptune is Trining Cuba’s North Node at 4 degrees Scorpio from the 7th house of relationships with all ‘others.” Cuba will have to be very careful of wearing those rose colored glasses as it may idealize the dream. Neptune rules glamour, all the illusory stuff of Hollywood and American consumer culture.  Neptune also rules drugs, addictions, gambling,and debt. We don’t want Cuba to go this route.This was part of what Cuba’s revolution took place against. Cuba did not sell out in the past that is one of its strengths and goals to be obsessively Scorpio strong in its unwavering desire.

Get ready to cha-cha. Smoke big cigars and see those beautiful 50’s imported cars being sold for bug bucks. Viva Cuba.

I also wanted to include this link for another way of seeing the synchronicity of the date to the planets by Olga Morales also a Cosmic Intelligence Agent.

CHAN CHAN Buena Vista Social Club 

Hugo Chavez, dictator or socialist leader,Astrology tell all

I find it fascinating to look into a public figure’s astrology,I seem to do quite a lot of these obituary readings.

Chavez rule was characterized as being extreme. He was popularly voted for and was no dictator, most Venezuelan’s lives benefitted greatly from Chavez’s rule. What’s the problem with that?  He is hated just because he socialized and nationalized his own countries resources? We should do that in Canada.

He is loved and hated in equal measure. Not bowing down to U.S. supremacy, Chavez was a leftist socialist pragmatic idealist, with strong ties to Cuba, and  Bolivia, he accomplished a Herculean task for the ordinary Venezuelan citizen in his 13 years at leader.

When elected in 1999 he called a public referendum with indigenous tribal groups to rewrite the Nation’s constitution.Something pretty unheard of in the world.

The country was renamed the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, in honor of Simon Bolivar.

At the beginning of 2000 Venezuela was the 5th largest Oil producing country in the world. since Chavez took office the state nationalized more than 50% of the oil companies in Venezuela.

He criticized the U.S. policy on Terrorism. After 9/11 Chávez showed pictures of Afghan children killed in a bomb attack on his own local television show. He commented that “They are not to blame for the terrorism of Osama Bin Laden or anyone else”, and called on the American government to end “the massacre of the innocents. Terrorism cannot be fought with terrorism.”  These remarks were widely publicized and made him into a popular American enemy. He was only telling the truth.

Chavez did not ruin the Venezuelan economy. He was not a dictator. That is lies spread by American media who want Venezuela’s oil rights back. He was a total populist leader who instituted fraud proof modern voting.

IN 2002 there were mass rallies against his regime. In spite of shutting down tv stations that opposed him and cozying up to certain despots, Chavez tempered down his policies in response.

Despite these criticisms, . Under the Chávez presidency, rates of poverty in Venezuela were slashed; education, public infrastructure and health services were dramatically improved; the economy improved and unemployment declined rapidly. Infant mortality rate declined. 22 state universities were built. The GNI went from $3,763 in 1999 and by 2011 it had risen to $11,820. a three-fold growth per-capita wealth in the space of 12 years is amazing. No country on earth has ever amassed a better life for her people in such a short period.

WHO WAS HUGO CHAVEZ? hugo Chavez astrology Tara Greene

I don’t have an exact birth time but use Noon for  a public figure. Chavez was born in a small town to a working class family.

we can see the REVOLUTIONARY LEADER Signature in his natal chart.

 A LEO with URANUS in Cancer conjunct the SUN –

CHIRON  the wounded healer is in CAPRICORN -opposite URANUS

seeing how the plutocracy hurts  the ordinary person and the problems in corporate structure

which Squares NEPTUNE in LIBRA in the 12th-

Neptune rules OIL, so Chavez big mandate was to keep private, privatize his countries resources- 12th house.

He was a spiritual political idealist, who operated from compassion

This perfectly describes CHAVEZ’S revolutionary politics.

HOME, protection, nurturing the people was a huge part of who Chavez was.

With 4 planets in CANCER- JUPITER, MERCURY, THE MOON, URANUS in conjunction

Jupiter is exalted in Cancer- which BTW will be prominent in a HUGE GRAND WATER TRINE in July of this year.

Cancer is water and the home and nurturing,shelter, sustaining, mothering of his people

Chavez clearly had his heart in the right place for the people

with those Cancer planets in the 9th house of the military, philosophy, truth, higher education, legal reforms, honesty,aiming higher

this also perfectly describes who Chavez was,

With SATURN  in SCORPIO

the sign of revolution rebirth, death, power, secrets, control, obsession, deep psychological understanding

right on the Ascendant for this chart – the people saw him as fearless, powerful, FATHER, leader, ruler, architect

Saturn is KARMA, time, corporate structure, the architect, destiny,history, ancestry, breakdown of old structures

Chavez will hold always a very prominent role in his country’s history, renaming the country to honor the ancestor’s

SATURN SQUARE his SUN in LEO

I really feel Chavez was a man of destiny,to revolutionize his country and ally with other South American countries

whoa re breaking free of ancient colonial suppression.

MARS in SAGITTARIUS on the GALACTIC CENTER

Born with MARS RETROGRADE on the GALACTIC CENTER

he belived in Sagittarius higher education and opened 22 free universities in 13 years. There is virtually no illiteracy in Venezuela now.

Chavez was a true visionary, aligning with the highest truth,this describes a Metaphysical philosophical political warrior

VENUS in VIRGO

loves discipline, hard work, a perfectionist, organizing, analytical, intellectual,VEnus in Virgo is very land oriented, and always gets the job done

NORTH NODE IN CAPRICORN

OPPOSITE JUPITER and MERCURY

Indicated Chavez destiny was to nurture and initiate new roots, a new political foundation, he was meant to be a leader. AN excellent speaker, his people felt both held by his love for them as well as his ability to be  a strong lead.

LILLITH CONJUNCT HIS SATURN in SCORPIO

INteresting this. LILLLITH the archetype of the 1st woman, NATURE HERSELF, untamable, her power resists any and all patriarchal attempts to restrict oppose or diminish her energy. CHAVEZ was feared and hated because he carried  this energy. He was totally aligned with his own vision, his own sense of what needed to die in order to build new forms. HE had amazing passion and depth. He was unstoppable in his goals.

MANy transits were affecting Chavez at his DEATH

On March 5th although it is disputed whether he actually died on this day or previously, the news was made public that day.

PLUTO, Lord of DEATH, conjunct his NORTH NODE.opposite his SOUTH NODE

your work is done on earth, you have completed your tasks, going HOME>

Pluto opposite Jupiter in Cancer- riches, inner wealth, going home.

PLUTO Square CERES- in LIBRA in the 12th

Chavez knew his time was up, there was a lot of secret meetings before he passed

to ensure his policies  would remain. Although the country will be thrown into some chaos.

SATURN RETROGRADE, At his SECOND SATURN RETURN

has square his Leo sun – SATURN in Scorpio is death, transformation

ALL the 6 PISCES PLANETS – Trine his 4 CANCER PLANETS and oppose his VENus in VIRGO

a sense  of returning to Oceanic consciousness going back to bliss

MARS is SQUARE to his NATAL MARS

there may indeed be some foul play, secret aggression connected to his death

the future of VENEZUELA?

Jupiter will enter Cancer in July

the people will want to keep Chavez’s policies in place

and URANUS PLUTO will be aligned in their ongoing square which will affect Venezuela

I will look at the date of Venezuela’s new state in another article

as well as CUBA which had depended on VEnezuela’s oil supplies
