Leo Moon,Daily inspiration, The Invitation

The Moon’s in Leo since last night. Leo Moons are always passionate dramatic and proud.. You are the Star and center stage. Ego’s come out to play or fight. Leo is ruled by the SUN. Leo Moon energy is hot, strong, leadership, big-hearted, vain, childlike, role playing, the Queen/King.

Sept. 9 It’s my teacher Oriah Mountain dreamer’s birthday. If you’ve read The Invitation you know of her writings. Even Beyoncé hand wrote out this most famous poem and shared it. Her books, The Invitation, The Dance, The Call etc. have sold millions of copies. I want to honour her for her work, and for all she taught me over many years. Wishing the best to you Oriah, this year, especially for your health. The Invitation came from a workshop she did with Welsh poet David Whyte years ago and was in her newsletter circulated in 1993.

I met Oriah in 1989 and started to apprentice with her from 1991 and did many Dream Star Lodge classes, teachings, four vision quests and many sweat lodges and shamanic healing training with her. Oriah is one of the smartest women I have ever known and I greatly respect her and her journey.

Daily Inspiration

Trump #7  Tarot of Metamorphosis

THE CHARIOT #7 Tarot of Metamorphosis

The Chariot, the Sign of Cancer, Cardinal water, 4th sign, ruled by the Moon.

Literally the Chariot is about getting into the driver’s seat and making sure you are centered and in control. The Thoth Tarot shows the golden armored charioteer with the Spinning wheel of karma or the wheel of time in their lap. The Chariot in this deck seems rather Leoish to me.

The Numerology of the Number 7, the Laws of 7’s. The Shemitah reference again. Seven year cycles are governed by the planet Saturn, 7, 14, 21, 28, 35,42, 49,56, 63, 70, 77, 84, etc. this is very ancient. In Vedic Astrology they only use the 7 planets. Sun, Moon are called planets, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter Saturn.

It’s all about cycles in nature. There are 7 days of the week named for 7 planets, 7 chakras. All is in Divine Order. 

When the emotional wave is up then it will crest and trough. Ride those waves of life knowing that what goes up must come down and so on and so on.

2014 will be a VERY intense year. 2013 has been relatively mild. The T- square between URANUS PLUTO and JUPITER Intensifies as firecracker Mars spends almost the first 6 months of 2014 in LIBRA making it a CARDINAL GRAND CROSS with 4 planets involved.

Mars is ARIES ruler, so yes the REVOLUTION is here. And it ain’t going away. Mars the fighter, the boxer, the general, King. Mars is in its weak sign, opposite ARIES. Mars is learning to make love NOT WAR in 2014.

WHAT kind of chariot will you be driving? How to navigate the terrain?

No matter what kind of vehicle you drive, metaphorically speaking, the best way t travel is to use a blank map, no GPS, drive blind -not literally. TAKE THE ROAD TO NOWHERE. – see links below. NOW HERE.

Jupiter in CANCER till July 16 2014 is exalted. He favors nurturing, women, home, security, feeling very emotional, crying, tsunamis. We have a doubly CAnCERIAN influence for the 1st half of the year. WOMEN need to make their needs met early in the year. 

There will be lots of chaos – especially in April as Jupiter Pluto and Uranus square each other at 13 degrees around April 22nd ish.Uranus In ARIES is breaking down all the structures, individual rights, freedom, liberation, all is new.Technology too.Pluto in Capricorn is breaking open corruption, secrecy, power control issues, big corpocracies which control the U.S. Canadian and most “democratic” governments now. 

Jupiter will enter LEO July 16 to make the count, 2 fire, 1 air, 1 earth arrangement. Its getting hotter and more masculine. Jupiter in Leo means gold prices will go through the roof.. Jupiter will then Trine  Uranus and square SATURN from October on. 

THE NORTH NODE also changes SIGN in February 18 to airy LIBRA if you use the TRUE NODE, on March 22 using the MEAN Node. Relationships, diplomacy, BALANCE, neutrality, give and take, the arts, beauty, love. VENUS ruled. Softer direction. ARIES selfishness is now PAST.

The markets will be haywire. Huge storms, incredibly difficult weather patterns.  The most obvious symbol is Radiation poisoning of the ocean which we know is already ongoing from Fukushima.

 SATURN enters SAGITTARIUS CHRISTMAS EVE but will re-enter Scorpio later in 2015.

HEAVY TRUCKIN’

Saturn Turns Retrograde March 2, 2014 @23 degrees. Do you have planets or angles from 19-27 degrees? The responsibility, the lead, the heavies, depression, testing won’t budge till October 28  when Saturn passes over that pivotal point again. GET READY for a big push. You may be pushing the car up the hill. Once you get to the top its coasting downhill all the way.

Venus is FULLY ILLUMINATED in the SUN moving from being a MORNING STAR, Venus Lucifer

VENUS and the SUN make the SACRED MARRIAGE at this SUPERIOR CONJUNCTION-at 8 degrees of ARIES

This marks one of the 5 Pointed STAR PENTAGRAM stations that Venus makes in her 8  year journey.

VEnus Pentagram tara Greene

 

at 10:04 am PST/1:044 pm EST which is a very potent time to do Prayers and Big wishes.

AS ABOVE SO BELOW, not about superior or inferior although we use those terms.

we want to use the Law of ATTRACTION

The conjunction is a culmination of WHAT and WHERE our values have been in LOVE, SEX, money, beauty since the VENUS ECLIPSE

We need to integrate where we were, when Venus ECLIPSED the Sun moving Retrograde at 15 degrees GEMINI on June 5/6 2012

read more detailed article about that major cycle here http://taratarot.com/id156.html

what were your love relationships like then?

how much has changed?

how much have you changed?

Venus will overtake the Sun and become the Evening STAR-called Venus Hesperus beginning a new  hemicycle

During the NIGHT VENUS phase we will DISTILL an experience and then feel it AFTER the ACT, or fact.

Next stop is in 9.5 months- just like a human gestation-

see graph by COSMIC INTELLIGENCE AGENCY of Venus’s Pentagram cycle in motion

CIA VEnus Graph

Venus will again go Retrograde @ 28 degrees Capricorn on Dec 21 2013- WINTER SOLSTICE

the next EXACT VENUS RX conjunction with the Sun occurs Jan 11 2014 at 21 degrees Capricorn

then Venus then becomes a Morning STAR again.

Venus moves DIRECT again Feb 1 at 13 degrees Capricorn conjunct Pluto and opposite JUPITER A VERY VERY Powerful soulful RICH in RESOURCES POWER AND JEWELS. So you want to plan for Feb 2014 to reap the BIG REWARDS.

BIG NEW LOVE and MONEY RITUAL INSTRUCTIONS- in two parts

You will need candles incense a notebook and some gemstones, rose tea, or rose water

VENUS’s gemstones are a girl’s best friend DIAMONDS

If you don’t have diamonds-

Jasper, Turquoise, Chrosprase, Emeald, Lapis Lazuli, Peridot, Topaz, Rose Quartz will do. you will need 5 stones

copper is also sacred to Venus- you can use copper pennies- Canada has just phased them out

melt them down and make Venus- 5 pointed stars from them

While the Moon is still in LIBRA before 5:53 pm PDT/ 8:53 pm EDT I would do the Venus ritual

have lovely flowers, green and blue’s offerings for the Goddess

Play soft music, burn sweet incense, use proper color candles.

Sit in circle with your gemstones, compose them into the pentagram corners shape

call in the 4 directions East to South to West to North and elements, Fire Water Earth Air

INVOKE Venus into your circle “Oh Great Goddess VENUS, Creatress of LOVE BEAUTY GRACE ART PLEASURE PEACE

come be with me in my circle and in my heart and for all the children of the earth.”

think back on where you were at the last VENUS SUN CONJUNCTION, at this point relationships can move forwards for the next 9.5 months

we are gestating NEW LOVE, NEW Relationships to WEALTH, our own self-love and beauty.

state out loud your own commitment to bringing out your own beauty on the Inner and outer,

if you are NOT in a relationship then conjure up your BELOVED, your soul mate

and conjure up your desire for wealth, to share, to help, to create art, beauty, refinement,

If you are in a relationship that seems stale, then ask to breathe new life into it, new passion, new dimensions,

if you feel stuck then ask for self-love to KNOW what to do

ask for your own creativity to bloom and grow. Then sit and breathe deeply relaxing more and more

Then sit quietly and listen to VENUS inspire you, give you direction…

wait, be patient, you are experiencing a COSMIC visitation a MYSTIC rendezvous with the MUSE,

Take as much time as you need, lie down,

when it feels complete, thank the Goddess, sit and write in a journal, then thank the spirits elements and fairies for being with you

and drink some sweet tea with roses in it and reflect.

Finances, Venus, Mars, 2012, Earth Day new cycles,Tara Greene,cosmic advice

Financial leap forwards as Venus goes Direct April 17 @ 29 degrees Pisces

how to work it, Mars Venus conjunction + much more from Tara Tarot Consultant  ©

 

On Friday April 17 @ 3:26 pm precisely EDT/12:26 pm PDT/7:25 pm GMT

VENUS TURNS DIRECT at 29 Degrees + change of PISCES that’s the Very Last of the Very Last Degree of the entire Zodiac. As Pisces is the Sign of endings, spirituality, Oneness, Bliss, Union, Sacredness, the Soul, Higher Love, merging with the Divine, the Beloved, ALL THERE IS. Venus turning around at the 29th+ = 30th degree, the final, finito, end, culmination of any sign, considered to be “critical” as in, the Game of Monopoly when you get the chance card that says STOP! Do not pass go! Do not collect…  in other words WE GOTTA GET “IT”  Finish that love/money/spirit cycle of martyrdom/fantasy and illusion all Pisces agendas -did I mention Neptune planetary ruler of Pisces rules OIL? & get over all that fossil fuel shenanigans, BEGIN ANEW,NOW!

 

This indicates that we are all together archetypal-y at a critical turning point in terms of Lessons in Love,{ remember that song?} Values, Beauty, Art, Relationships, Women, Money, Luxury, Mother Nature, the Body as Venus rules Earth sign Taurus as well as Airy Libra, symbol of the balance, Karma… all those Venus ruled goodies.

Venus turning direct at the 29 degree of Pisces  marks THE END of a major Spiritual cycle. 

Remember also that in these speeded up leaping into new dimensions of consciousness times that we’re presently in, everything becomes more synchronistic, more symbolic, more literal and more REAL, the dream and reality are merging into ONE. The word critical in itself is associated with Hindu Goddessess the Kritikas, who were the origins of the 3 fates in Greek mythology.

 

April 19th –20th  Moon Venus and Mars are all embracing each other at the last degrees of Pisces.

 

April 21 MARS conjunct VENUS at 29 degrees of Pisces To BALANCE & complete the sequence

 

So I can’t help but get the symbolic message that this is literally…

DANCE ME TO THE END OF LOVE

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y_PIadFsvDk

 

“Dance Me To The End Of Love”

Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
Dance me through the panic ’til I’m gathered safely in
Lift me like an olive branch and be my homeward dove
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love
Oh let me see your beauty when the witnesses are gone
Let me feel you moving like they do in Babylon
Show me slowly what I only know the limits of
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the wedding now, dance me on and on
Dance me very tenderly and dance me very long
We’re both of us beneath our love, we’re both of us above
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the children who are asking to be born
Dance me through the curtains that our kisses have outworn
Raise a tent of shelter now, though every thread is torn
Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
Dance me through the panic till I’m gathered safely in
Touch me with your naked hand or touch me with your glove
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love

 

I want to send great blessings and homage to Leonard Cohen who as a great artist, lover of women, song, all things Zen, Poet, prophet. Leonard has fulfilled his name destiny, as Cohen means The High Priest, so he is fulfilling that role in a new Archetypal way for all of us as all our “Pope’s” High Priests and High Priestesses use the medium of rock music, Venus rules music, to get their spiritual messages across.  Leonard was interviewed by CBC from his Montreal home on April 16.

 

As an Archetypal Universal symbol, VENUS {as the Dove} symbolizes and carries the energy of LOVE the element that created, birthed and sustains the entire Universes

So we see HER, the God/dess forces as leading and guiding us to end old cycle and renew ourselves NOW. Mars has been a few degrees behind Venus in Pisces these last few days lending action, anger, force, defensiveness and co-incidentally we see the women of Kabul Afghanistan marching to oppose that rape on demand by husband law, they took a brave stance they’re not gonna take it anymore! We need to support them.

 

So, as we can all see, these are very critical times. As we move ever faster towards the singularity event horizon of Novelty that ethno-biologist Terrence McKenna prophsied, a.k.a. Dec 21 2012/ the Mayan Calendar’s “best before” date, the end of time as we knew it, each of these turning points marks a notch towards that singularity. Lets not “slouch towards Jerusalem.”

 

Venus’s Retrograde cycle was described by ancient Sumerian  Mythology/Religion Psychology as the Great Goddess’s Inanna’s Descent into the Underworld as an Initiation. Inanna ventured into the Underworld {the SHADOW, Pluto’s domain} to be stripped of all her  worldly possessions untiil she was rendered a mere piece of meat hanging and rotting on a stake in the underworld, in other words she was striped bare of her ego, so that she could rise again, to the Upperworld, more whole, cleansed, redeemed and connected to Her own innate spiritual powers.

 

Venus’s disappearance from sight for eight days {the symbol for Infinity} as she passes over the Sun, changes her appearance from being a nigh time to a daytime star. The Ancient Greeks believed that Venus was two separate bodies, they called the morning star, Phosphoros the “Bringer of Light” or Latin Eosphorus the “Bringer of Dawn”. The evening star they called Hesperos,Latinized Hesperus the “star of the evening. Eventually the  realization came that there was only one planet with two distinct faces or phases. Hesperos would be translated into LatinVesper and Phosphoros as Lucifer (“Light Bearer”), a poetic term later used to refer to the fallen angel cast out of heaven.

 

So we together have just come out of an Archetypal shamanic death and rebirth journey of the Feminine, the Goddess, our money and values. Interesting isn’t it?

Venus direct happens on Orthodox Greek Good Friday ,so they are synchronized up perfectly and adding to this energy of rebirth. But we must make sure that we all got the lesson that began March 6th when Venus began her Retro.

 

RITUAL TO MARK THE END OF THE CYCLE & REBIRTH

To mark this part of your, the collective’s and the Goddesses’ journey through the Underworld, it’s optimum time and paramount that you release old patterns of “self-undoing, especially old negative, self defeating ones, as Pisces shows co-dependent, martyrdom as its shadow side. Think back on any and all the ways you sabotage yourself, in love, financially; are addicted to fantasy, delusion, drugs, sex, consumerism, and sado-masochistic tendencies. As a culture we have all been addicted, brainwashed, and have low self-esteem. This is time to visit all those secrets, the Real SECRET is there, its what’s behind everything, bless it, understand it, connect to the Source PISCES, allow spirit to heal it, leave all that behind and emerge BLISSFULL into a new dawn.

 

2012 MAYAN VIEW of VENUS

Co-incidentally as I was researching to give you a visual diagram of Venus cycles, the Ancient Maya used Venus as their primary planet, more important that the Sun, the Dec 21 2012 “end date”  has to do with Venus’s journeys, she was also very important Astrologically in Vedic Indian culture.

 

If you look at the diagram of the Mayan Venus Cycle time-line pictured as part of this post above you will note the Mayan glyphs imaged as small blue squares lined up along the time-line. Each blue square represents the Maya day-name associated with a specific date on the time-line. At the beginning on the far left the glyph for the Mayan day-name “Cib” represents the date August 26, 2007. That is the date upon which the ancient Maya approximated the first day that Venus would rise as a morningstar during this present cycle. The ancient Mayas actually considered that day to be the end of the last cycle rather than the beginning of this one and so they would not have pictured this date at the start of the diagram as I have done.

 this Venus Cycle that we are experiencing presently began at the very end of the previous one on August 26, 2007 on the Mayan day “10-Cib”. It lasted right on through superior conjunction which began on April 18 2008 ( 12-Eb) and then afterwards through the series of days of the Eveningstar risings which began on July 17, 2008 (11 Ik).

Finally now on the 24th of Marchj on the Mayan day-name “1-Eb” the series of Eveningstar apearances will end, and the planet Venus will enter the last phase in its present Cycle, a phase called “Inferior Conjunction”. This phase will last only eight days and will end on the first day of Morningstar risings, approximately on April 1, 2009 which in the Mayan Calendar is known as “9-Ahau”

The coincidence of a first day morningstar rising with a Mayan day-name “Ahau” was very important to the ancient Mayas. It signalled the end of one eight-year Venus Sequence composed of five Venus Cycles, and heralded the beginning of a new one.

 

Note that the Markets seem to have improved somewhat as Venus RX meant reversing what was already in place. The Sun just entered Taurus, one of Venus’s home signs on the 19th. The market should continue to strengthen temporarily in the sign of  the Bull.

 

MARS/VENUS CONJUNCTION April 21 @ 7:19 pm EDT/4:19 pm PDT/11:19 pm GMT

 

Now incredibly a brand new balanced cycle begins. Mars and Venus conjoin at 29 degrees 32 mins of Pisces. The rule is to round up and go forward so this means that a Huge new cycle begins because Venus and Mars are conjunct at ZERO degrees of ARIES.

Archetypally VENUS and MARS Conjunction is the Sacred Marriage, the Alchemy, the turning of Lead into Gold. We are exactly on the edge of the old,29 degrees of Pisces and the new Zero degrees of Aries, This is a Rebirth, a new life, Spring. Zero degrees of Aries is Archetypal New Life, the very beginning of the Zodiacal degrees., a new round in the Wheel of Time and Life.

 

RITUAL IS HUGE and timing is everything so it’s very important to mark these important celestial passages. Our ancestors world wide would have done so and Indiginous peoples are doing so and for a new ecology of the planet and consciousness and what with Earth Day on the 23rd ,let’s embody the planetary significance of this cycle inspiring a whole new balance and quality of Life.

 

The ALCHEMICAL MARRIAGE WITHIN

Prepare to do ritual, to manifest the “as above so below, as within.”  Usually one bathes and cleanses themselves, I would suggest wearing white. Call in the 4 directions, the 4 elements. Call Venus and Mars, light a Blue or green candle for Venus and a red candle for Mars and place them on your alter or on a table close together. Have fresh flowers around for the Celebration.

Play Dance me to the end of love or other music which relaxes and feels sensual. Take your time, relax and breathe. Remember that you have just finished the Archetypal “dark Night of the Soul” and have faced your Shadows, and are being reborn as Venus is, cleansed. You are a new being, a new person, ready to face a new dawn a new life, new love. Behold all is new!

Visualize inside of yourself your own inner Queen and King, {or Prince and Princess} your inner Masculine and Feminine sides, every person has both. The Feminine side is the feelings, intuition, receptivity, traditionally the left side,  The Masculine side, usually the right side, is where you act on and defend the Feminine Guidance in reality. Really sense, visualize what they look like, details. Feel their presence, their love and passion, their honesty and dedication, their longing to unite with one another, their hope of creating Heaven on earth together.  Hear the strains of the Wedding march or other music which feels appropriate to you, whatever that may be. {personally I love the song Put Your Love in Me}

See, Feel and sense your Beloved. See your inner couple being present at their own, your own Wedding. Feel the heat and sweetness of their breaths and hear their vows to each other, Feel within your self a melting into a sacred inseparable union. Bring your hands together and as you do hear and feel two heartbeats meld into One and clasp your hands together. Hear the Wedding Bells chime. Feel the soaring union in your heart. You are whole and complete, inseparable within yourself, nevermore alone, you have achieved the Inner Sacred. Everything changes upon this union. Masculine and Feminine sides become Interchangable, balanced. Feel the elation and the awe, the sense of being able to relax and let go, the chase is over, all is attained. You are the Beloved and the Lover. Hear Tears of joy will well up in our eyes, let them flow. Feel and sense the joy, the choruses of angels and archangels and  Seraphim all singing in praise. Dance the joy.

Give yourself a gift, write out the vows, your experience of the wedding. Drink champagne, this is a Holy Day! Take a photo of yourself as a Newlywed! Take yourself on a honeymoon in your imagination. Make sure the experience lasts. Speak only positive loving words to each of your inner mates.
