Death, sex, transformation, Saturn returns to Scorpio

Saturn, lord of Karma, the real host of Reality re-enters Scorpio June 14, Flag day in the U.S.  The Sun in Gemini conjuncts and sets fire to Mars today too. Mars rules Scorpio traditionally and this will definitely feel intensely sexual, with angry outbursts of bravado and ego energy amping up our minds and Souls/Sol as we really confront that Scorpionic energy. Wherever Saturn goes that is where reality is and where we are being tested. 

All of our greatest fears and biggest deepest shadows are what we need to wade through during this period. This culture is terrified of death and ageing, traditional cultures honored the elderly and their dead ancestors. 

Saturn is Chronos, Father Time, the Lord of Karma, death and maturity. Pluto is Lord of Death, transformation, refuse, the unconscious, sexuality, power, control, secrets, obsession. These last three months of return to Hades realm, the underworld, Hell, the valley of the shades is huge. We are dealing with Two death-dealing and transformational very powerful planetary Gods. 

I know some people are terrified of this but I see it as a  huge last-ditch literal opportunity to re-immerse ourselves in deep shit shadow work. Saturn is leading us into the filth, rot, refuse, and trenches of Hades, Pluto’s realm again. We should be waving white “I surrender” flags.The underworld is our upper world. 

Everything which we project onto “others” as bad,unacceptable or fearful is our own unaccepted shadow material. To fundamentalist Christians it is everything that is not them- transgender, or gay people. To racists it is blacks, Hispanics, Muslims or Jews, “goyim” ; to vegans it is meat eaters.  We need to move through our own shadows and learn to accept them in order to become whole and balanced.  The shadow is fear itself, fear of the unknown, fear of death, fear of getting old of being alone.

Saturn will spend 3 months till September 17 in Scorpio just before the Shemitah year finishes September 14/15  Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year. 

Saturn will be moving at a snail’s pace in Retrograde motion back to 28+ degrees of Scorpio until August 1st/2nd when it turns Direct.  Saturn is lead, and so we will all be feeling Saturn’s heavy weight to everything we do.

We will be getting the first close contact with Pluto as the New Horizons spacecraft makes its closest fly-by ever on July 14. Pluto’s discover Clyde Tombaugh’s ashes are aboard the spacecraft a fitting tribute. The symbolism is also so synchronous.

Saturn only traverses any sign once every 28/29 years. Gotta do the work NOW.

Last time Saturn was in Scorpio was November 29, 1982 -May 6, 1983 and August 24, 1983- November 17, 1985 when AIDS was first discovered. They are having or have just had their FIRST SATURN RETURN. 

Previous Scorpio Saturn peeps were born October 1953-October 1956 and the third Saturn in Scorpio generation was born  between 1924-1926. 

Saturn is in mutual reception with Pluto again as they were for the last two years.

Saturn entered Scorpio Oct 5, 2012 -Dec 23 2014. 

Saturn symbolizes the father, any incest and all types of sexual abuse by males is one of the major shadows we need to face. Long buried memories from this life time or even past lives need to be rooted out.   Scorpio is deep emotions, any type of felt emotional abuse by anyone; a parent, teacher, authority figure, or stranger needs to be embraced, cried through and brought out into the Light. 

We need to also face up to the darkness of where we are being abused through power and control everywhere in the world by the media, governments, banks, religion,education, the medical establishments, politics, culturally and in our personal lives and where we ourselves abuse power. 

We need to fess up with our secrets, coming clean is healing. Obsessions, rage, control, OCD, our defenses, our projections and hates, that is all shadow material.

“We find that by opening the door to the shadow realm a little, and letting out various elements a few at a time, relating to them, finding use for them, negotiating, we can reduce being surprised by shadow sneak attacks and unexpected explosions.”
-Clarissa Pinkola Estes Women who run with the Wolves, 

If we howled our grief and fear together perhaps this would create a movement, and communities would howl one to another like wolves do and our howling would raise the buried dead parts of ourselves back to life,like the sounding of Gabriel’s trumpet. 

Depending on which house Saturn is Transiting and the aspects Saturn triggers as well in your  astrology chart that will give us major clues on what material you need to work through. Especially difficult will be Saturn transitting the 12th or 8th house.

“To confront a person with his shadow is to show him his own light. Once one has experienced a few times what it is like to stand judging between the opposites, one begins to understand what is meant by the self. Anyone who perceives his shadow and his light simultaneously sees himself from two sides and thus gets in the middle. ~ Carl Jung

I am creating a support group so that we can share our common fears, shadows and experiences. This transit affects everyone in the world.  I am waiting a bit till after Saturn re-enters Scorpio to start. This will be a weekly teleconference. we will use astrology, the tarot, dream work, and exercises to work through and do rituals and make art with our shadow parts.

If this calls to you please email me. I am figuring out a fee and the best time to schedule as there are people in various time zones. taragreenetarot@gmail.com

super rich Astrology, Venus Trine Pluto

Lilith original woman Art Napoleon Brousseau

Lilith and nagas painting by Napoleon Brousseau

March 30 get ready as VENUS in TAURUS will TRINE PLUTO in Capricorn at 15+ degrees

 

This is a super rich high calorie powerful and positive earth trine with great depth, richness, power and sensuality.

Venus rules Taurus so she is in her earthiest sensual most beautiful paradise in TAURUS. She is the real goods, the hands on physical earthly pleasures. The beauty of women with natural breasts and no implants. The beauty of the natural world, the virgin earth untouched by man. The beauty of raw materials, money, luxury, art, honey, flowers. The beauty in  all relationships, the feminine spirit or essence in everything. 

Venus symbolizes all women, each and every one of them, as well as all forms of beauty-

can you see beauty

“even when it is not pretty
every day.
And if you can source your own life
from its presence.” – Oriah Mountain Dreamer from The Invitation *

PLUTO is the Lord of the depths, Lord of death, of the invisible world of the shades as the ancients referred to ghosts. The word HADES is implicit in the word shades. Not blinds or blinders but the world where the blinders of life and limited consciousness are removed. Pluto’s realm is very much alive as the dead were felt to live forever mythicaly and we instinctively know that in our ancient archetypal imaginations and psyches.

Most myths about Pluto and Persephone say that Pluto abducted or raped her to his realm. Some say the older interpretation was that Persephone went voluntarily to Pluto’s underworld. It is part of her initiation into womanhood. Her encounter with Pluto symbolizes her menstrual cycle and her sexual initiation into womenhood.  Venus symbolizes Persephone/Kore her Greek name.

 

PLUTO’s name means RICHES. The richness of the immortal world, the eternal world, soul riches. This is also the imaginal, archetypal realm, the liminal, in-between, twilight worlds. These areas partake of our mourning over those we loved and lost who have passed from this material world. It’s the realm of memory, poetry and bards and our ancestors who provide guidance from beyond. 

Pluto as the ruler of SCORPIO governs sexuality, desire, danger, obsession, power, control, secrets. Scorpio is associated with snakes and snake wisdom, instinctual, grounded; and the shedding and recycling of their skins suggesting immortal life. Snakes also symbolize menstruating women, who monthly bleed and do not die.

Put these two planets/gods and Goddesses together in a positive earth trine and this is a great opportunity for women, artists, the creative spirit, and all of our soul’s riches to soar and support each other. 

Earth Trines ae good for VIRGO.

From Pluto there is a sextile to both Pisces with Chiron nearby at 18 degree, and another sextile to Scorpio at 15 degrees-beneficial. From VENUS a sextile to 15 degrees of Cancer and another one back to Pisces at 15 degrees which is the mid-point the hottest degree. It is also beneficial for 15 degrees of Virgo.If you have planets here definitely dig up your inner treasures and feel your riches and beauty. 

MEDITATE on this positive trine.

it will happen in the middle of the night in PDT and EDT.

Think about riches, your inner, ineffable ones. The beauty of all of you, your “flaws” your scars, they are all beautiful. Ponder the qualities that you will take with you to the afterlife when you die. Cultivate inner beauty which no one can ever rape or take from you.

Think about VENUS, the ancient image of woman, the feminine and her psychological archetypal wealth which each of you carry within. She is your instincts, your ability to love and relate, your longing for beauty, peace and proportion. 

Honour beauty by creating art and making love.”ALL ACTS OF LOVE AND BEAUTY ARE MY WORSHIP”- The Goddess

I think about the most ancient feminine archetype of LILITH who I am very close to and fond of. She symbolizes the shadow feminine who is very like our fear of Pluto, death, depth psychology, our own shadow parts. James Hillman’s works are a great resource of Pluto depth archetypes.

We need to love our shadows,to extract the riches there.  The primal archetype of Lilith, her beauty in individual strength, in trusting her instincts. Snakes, her symbol represent primal instincts.

Draw upon your instincts at this time and ask to be blessed with the knowledge of both beauty and the taboo around beauty. Bless your own beauty in all its forms and your inner wealth. This will multiply your wealth mentality and attract more wealth back to you.

Pluto is the Plutocracy the 1% that own most of the wealth on this planet. Call upon the Goddesses, the Divine Feminine, Demeter, Persephone’s mother, Kali, Durga,Lilith,the Black Madonna to bring balance to the earth and restore natural beauty and harmony so that we may all enjoy the earth’s riches in our lives. 

Knowledge of Lilith is really imperative for women and men doing their inner psychological and spiritual work.  Invite her archetype to come into your dreams for dream healing. She is in every Astrology chart.  

Lilith & Naga.

I adore this beautiful little jewel of a painting of Lilith the original woman with three snakes or nagas. Lilith was the snake in the Tree of Knowledge informing Eve correctly to eat the apple of Knowledge which made humans  conscious, this was the first act of free will.

There is also video of the painting being created by Napoleon Brousseau.

There will be prints available on SAATCHI as of April 2 to feed your Venus Pluto with
