Mercury Retrograde tara Greene Toronto This indicates a time for tuning into our bodies to find out where we have stored pain, knots and energy blocks from PTSD’s and to let our bodies wisdom tell us what it needs and how to heal it. Our bodies are very wise and record everything we have experienced since before our births.

Dream work is also augmented at this time from Chiron in Pisces energy. Traditionally sick patients were sent to the Dream Temples of Asclepius to receive their healing dreams.  A similar opportunity is available during this Mercury Retrograde. Dreams always reveal the hidden soul secrets. Find out what your dreams mean. Book a dream reading with me. http://www.taratarot.com

This is the best time to get a healing energy reading with me while Mercury is Retrograde from April 28-May 22nd while I am in Sedona’s sacred healing vortex energies. The red rocks of Sedona’s high iron content aligns with the body’s magnetic fields. 

Mercury is an alchemical planet and energy. It is considered to be hermaphroditic, the perfect balance of the sacred feminine and the sacred masculine.

Gemini New Moon with Mars,Galactic Astrology

June 16 Gemini New Moon @ 25+ degrees of the Twins conjunct to Mars

occurs @ 7:05 am PDT/ 10:05 am EDT/ 2:05 pm GMT

New Moon Astrology Tara greene ccjofra

Gemini New Moon

Image by C.C. Jofra 

A New Moon with Mars, planet of men indicates a new beginning, a powerful new identity {SUN} and emotional {MOON} change in that testosterone driven half of the twins.  

This will be a heady, busy, difficult, time  for the next few months.

Gemini is the mind, our consciousness and symbolizes the apparent duality of this dimension. Gemini is the first Air sign,the place where consciousness enters from the Aries first sign spirit spark to the Taurus physical plane to the Airy mental plane or world.

The Twins are the apparent duality of the opposites, yin/yang, black/white. Gemini symbolizes the twin aspects of our brains, which is really one mind, one brain, wholeness in essence. The myths of the hero twins exist in every culture worldwide.

That split, that splinter, or fragment in our minds was not always there. It was really inserted thousands of years ago by Mars driven aggressive defensive politics. The Masculine macho warrior conquering hero Patriarchal God story was created to control women, to take away the power from the Goddess and from the earth, Mother Nature in the Old Testament. That 5,000+ year old split has destroyed millions of people, mainly women, species, cultures, landscapes, lakes, rivers, and entire continents. We live in the results of such an out of balance split off Mars belief in war, competition, domination, greed and lust.  If it continues unabated, it  is actually a Mars ruled Scorpio unconscious suicide mission for all life and the planet. 

CHIRON in PISCES is squaring the SUN MOON MARS trinity

it is good to look back from where we have come. We need to feel our actual vulnerability and to heal the wounds of the Patriarchy. We are all suffering because of the imbalance of the sexes . The patriarchal view of the world is not real, it is an addiction, simply a belief, a  GEMINI thought form. Once men and women had more equality, women were the ones in power, with men being their consorts.  Nature was revered, children, women and creativity, tribal connections, a simpler life was the way people chose to live. Women in tribal communities supported each other, as in the novel The Red Tent. Men were hunter gatherers and protectors of the women and children. This is a natural order.  Men suffer too, they are not allowed to feel, they act like cardboard cut outs of false beliefs about honor, patriotism or the false beliefs of all organized religions.

Like him, hate him or indifferent to him, Bruce Jenner as the popular archetype symbolizes the Mars competing sports hero who is integrating the lost Feminine energies. We need this energy now more than ever. If you see Bruce Jenner and the trans community from a Transpersonal level then Bruce is helping to heal  this split. He symbolizes the masculine who is  extremely embodying that energy of embracing the feminine again. In times of crisis brave people step forward,although unconsciously. Even though Bruce and the Kardashians seem superficial, vain, and have high status on another level Bruce is carrying a huge gift as a living symbol.

Mars Sun and Moon  conjunct the North Star,  a pivotal compass point of your highest goals. Sun MOON MARS are also opposite the Galactic Center. The G.C. at 27+ degrees of Sagittarius is a place of massive infra-red rays and symbolizes a conscious awareness expansion. It is a wormhole, a portal for souls. The Dec 31 2012 Mayan galactic center Winter Solstice alignment helps us to see how far we have come in two and a half years. It seems longer than that,doesn’t it?

SUN MOON MARS are inconjunct to SATURN in SCORPIO at the most critical 29th degree. 

Mars rules Saturn while it is in Scorpio and Uranus while in Aries.

Saturn is the PATRIARCHY itself, the history, the testing, the force, the Fathers. This shows another KARMIC aspect to the ending of many old patriarchal patterns. Saturns’ slow Retrograde over the last degrees of Scorpio will bring about many emotional deaths, rebirths, transformations in sex, power, money, control, secrets, ruthlessness, greed and obsession. That is a good thing.

Grand Air Trine

lifting out thoughts higher. MERCURY in GEMINI to the NORTH NODE in Libra to CERES in AQUARIUS the Mother Earth Goddess in her revolutionary techno- phase.  Where are we going collectively, thee North Node. How do we integrate our knowledge that we are the consciousness of the earth Herself? Major questions about how we are using the technological tools and the harm they are doing to our bodies, our children and the future of the earth. Young people are developing new tech tools to clean up many eco-messes. We need to implement new ways of using this extended consciousness to serve positive outcomes on all levels.

GRAND FIRE TRINE

URANUS in ARIES, JUPITER in LEO are trining ATHENA the Warrior Goddess in SAGITTARIUS.

Athens, the Ancient Capital of Greece which was dedicated to Athena, a later patriarchal Goddess of war, is going through some major revolutions and upheavals right now. Athena was originally an AMAZON fighting against the patriarchy in Libia. The Prime Minister refuses to back down to Germany and the bank creditors. Greece may be exiting the E.U. The original Amazon warrioress Athena is being played out again. A fire Trine brings more heat passion and spontaneous energy. 

We are still under Cardinal Cross energy and Uranus will move into 20 degrees Aries soon. 

June 15/16 VENUS in LEO is inconjunct {135 degree aspect} to Neptune in PISCES  her “higher octave” very late tonight PDT and tomorrow early a.m. EDT in effect on the New Moon.Watch out for your dreams, projections and ideals to be challenged. What is real and true in your heart values and what is illusion, addiction, glamour or fantasy are the questions to think about. This can happen both on the reality level and in your dreams.

This can spell relationship and romantic challenges. VENUS IN LEO is like STRENGTH in the Tarot  and Neptune in Pisces is like THE MOON, the dark side, fear.

This Venus/Neptune aspect is further enhanced June 17 as a Cancerian Moon trines Neptune. It is in effect until June 19 when Moon quincunx’s Neptune and June 20 when Moon conjuncts Venus and then there is a powerful Venus inconjunct to Pluto on Solstice June 21.

An inconjunct is like two people who speak totally different languages. It’d like bad sex, there is no vibe, it doesn’t feel right, something is off. YOU know what I mean.

Venus is our values, in Leo they must have dominance, be the QUEEN BEE, lioness, drama queen, vain, eating up the scenery. She can devour everything in her royal path. Venus in Leo rules the heart. She can be proud, courageous, bold, a natural leader, competitive, a selfish  egotist bitch on a bad or good day depending. You will see her claws come out. She can be addicted to perfection, her way and no other. The Goddess must also stay in balance.

Neptune in Pisces is super sensitive, highly emotional, a psychic sponge, compassionate, spiritual, creative, an artist, romantic, into soul mates, delusional, addicted, believes in past lives, a New Age,  martyr. A power hungry ego VENUS in LEO can ravage sensitive Neptune in Pisces.  Women are also victims of acting like a man in women’s clothing.

Venus in Leo dreams big. Will power, strength of purpose, confidence, she has that in spades. Neptune in Pisces is usually shy, blending in, camouflaging themselves, self-sacrificing. The most  necessary lesson for PISCES energy and peeps is to learn boundaries, which Venus blesses us with aplenty.

Act bolder, trust your passions and instincts and your HEART most importantly and not drown in our insecurities, self-doubt and being martyrs to these ancient belief systems which are not serving our Galacticentric worldview.

Natural Saturday, celebrate your wealth Astrology

Its Taurus time, we are in the Garden of Eden, is what Taurus teaches us.

Moon sextiles Neptune in the middle of the night to bring on strong sensual dreams. Do write them down or record. I’ve been dreaming really intensely of late. 

Moon trines Pluto

 

Celebrate your wealth. Wether it is actually physical or metaphysical. It is all the same just a matter of different vibrational density.

Revel in you body, Taurus slows down, slow dances, tastes every flavor, discerns and savours.

belly dance Taurus Tara Greene

Belly dance, Get a massage, walk barefoot  in the grass, chill, relax, let go.  In nature, a park, your backyard, or whatever your grounds are. DIY is Taurus, gardening, knitting, cooking.

Pluto is soul riches and Taurus loves rich things. Its Ok to overdue, expect miracles and beauty.

Taurus rules real estate as does the Moon. A good time to buy a larger more palatial place, and practically outline your souls biggest conquering the world plans, or maybe just be a lazy Taurus and be happy to be in your own backyard swinging on a hammock?

Moon squares Jupiter

this is great for big family gatherings, parties, theatre, art  gallery going, dances etc. 

Mon sextiles Chiron at days end

cuddle up sweetly next to someone who loves you and who makes you feel safe.

Happy Saturday

Under the Influence, Sun square Neptune,

It’s the end of May. There is major Neptunian action today which is in effect until the Full Moon on June 2.

Gemini Sun squares Neptune in Pisces which can be excellent for spiritual, creativity, meditation and dream work as it is a light in the fog. Except that Sun in Gemini is ruled by Mercury which is currently Retrograde making it more difficult to figure out which way to go. 

Staying connected to Source enables you to find the Light at the end of the tunnel.

The positive side of this aspect is the ability to bring the Light to the Soul and mind. Seeing the Source directly and understanding old lessons with Mercury Retrograde. According to spiritual tradition one cannot look at the Light of God directly. I think that is a control mechanism. 

Do pay attention to your dreams tonight. Before you go to sleep tell yourself you will be AWAKE- the Light of consciousness in your dreams. Approaching Full Moon dreaming should be strong. 

Are you feeling like you can’t figure out which was to go because of the smoke and mirrors show? All that foggy jazz? 

I was just on the phone with a client of mine who is in Russia undergoing this transit very heavily. See chart below. Besides Neptune squaring her North and South nodes at 9 degrees of Gemini/Sagittarius the SUN is conjunct her North Node today @ 9 + degrees.  If you have planets at those degrees of MUTABLE Signs and Virgo you will feel this over the next few days. 

Sun square Neptune Astrlogy Tara Greene

Neptune rules indecision, avoidance, escapism, DEBT, addictions, deep unconscious memories, self-undoing, karmic lessons, self-pity, martyrdom.

Do you feel that you are unconsciously setting yourself up to fail?

I am now under the influence- the perfect wording for a Neptune transit. Neptune rules intoxicants.

I never take drugs, Am very sensitive to any medication, and alcohol. For some people this works the opposite all they are into is escapism. Hollywood, glamour, illusion, delusion, addictions. 

Neptune is at the midpoint, mid-way between my Sagittarius Sun and my Moon. 

It is extremely dreamy and spiritual and creative but can also bring up all of your unconscious material to clear through compassion forgiveness and self- acceptance.

The cure is in the letting go. Pisces, surrender. It is the MOON in the Tarot  

Moon Tarot Trump #18 Tara Greene

The Moon is a gateway. Traditionally a three-way path ruled by Hekate the Crone Goddess. This is where reality and unreality merge. It is the darkness of the birth canal. The black hole. The Twilight Zone. A nether world. A parallel universe merging point, a crossing over.  Fear of the unknown. Phobias. Past life karma. Atlantis. Dolphins, Christ.

Remember to have faith. There is always light at the end of the tunnel. 

Moon squares Jupiter also today. 

You can look at your deep complexes with strength.

Happy Cinco de Mayo

 

Do toast Mexico, have some tequila and toast its Mayan heritage.

Moon is now in Sagittarius and we all be feeling better for the next two+ days. Sagittarius is inspiring. The sign of International affairs,  life long learning, teaching, good humor, adventure loving, and easy-going laid back….whatever-ness. I am a Sagittarius.  It is my Lunar return today.

It’s a bit serious today as Moon has conjunct Saturn. Foreign affairs, travel and making commitments are on your mind. The shootings in Texas over the Mohammed drawings like in Denmark and France bring this to mind. If we cant have artistic freedom to express ourselves in democratic countries WTH is going on ? Muslims can do what they want in their own lands. They do not have the fascistic right to impose their wills on anybody else. It is not a religion but a fascist order.

Moon opposes Mercury in Gemini

We are now in the Shadow of a Mercury Retrograde so be extra careful going over details. 

Moon squares Neptune late tonight only in PDT

which is good for programming adventurous dreams and working with dream teachers, as Sagittarius, ruled by Jupiter is the esoteric home of the Higher master Teachers. You can ask to work with a favourite Ascended Master, writer, poet or philosopher. 

Speaking of Dreams. 

I had a very powerful dream the night before the Full Moon. MAy 2. It is I waded into a pond of dark brown water, my husband was in the water as well as a number of other people I didn’t seem to know. Usually I dislike wading into still water like that. I could feel the reeds on the bottom and a mushy muddy bed which also usually disgusts me in real life. In the dream I was fine with it.  I wade in, the pond smells of sulphur, to note a smell in the dream is very unusual. Smell is what connects us to the strongest memories, it is our ancient reptilian brain that does this. 

I wade in but am feeling very calm and very good. Perhaps this is a mud bath which soothes my soul 

Mud is the fertile ground from which  the lotus grows.  

It is good that I am dreaming about sulphur, part of the alchemical nature and in the ground where future enlightenment may grow. Maybe I need a mud bath.

Always analyze your dreams from a more transpersonal perspective, although everything and object in your dream is you.

Pay attention to your dreams.

Optimistic fire Trines, Mercury in Pisces

MARS conjunct URANUS square PLUTO 3/11/15

Anger, chaos, unexpected power struggles. My son and I had an argument. Well I saw three women have a screaming match on the subway and they were threatening each other loudly. A bicyclist was sideswiped by a Toronto Streetcar I was on in the evening. The man wasn’t wearing a helmet and he was very lucky to be thrown onto the sidewalk. His ankle seems to have been hurt but he was conscious. A passenger called 911 and the ambulance came within minutes. Still I rarely am at the scene of anything like this. How was it for you?

Moon is now in Sagittarius till Saturday morning bringing optimism to the fire.

Horsey Moon conjuncts Saturn for sobering dreams or a night of dead sleep.

Moon squares Neptune to make it a very idealistic dreamy and foggy  morning.

MOON TRINES JUPITER & URANUS  at night

light a bonfire. celebrate fire. light candles at least, sparklers, 

Burn some old effigies  or things you don’t want in your life anymore. Make some positive intentions. Celebrate before the heavy weekend when Saturn goes RETROGRADE.

Saturn is close to squaring Neptune now, we can feel it.  The exact squares don’t happen until November 26 @ 7 degrees of Sagittarius and into 2016.

Saturn is reality, duty, structure, history, conservative, seniority, reality, karma, limitations.

Neptune is unreal, fantasy, illusions, imagination, spiritual, dreamy,  addictions, escapism, denial. 

Saturn in Sagittarius binds the wild spirited Centaur. Saturn is taming the Sagittarius wild bucking bronco’s spirit, which in time {Saturn’s realm} the horse will serve to bear his rider.

Inspirational Card of the day 

hallucinogen Astrology Tara Greene

SOMA

TRUMP # 18 from The Secret Dakini Oracle Deck 

THE MOON, associated with the sign of PISCES.

The Dakini Oracle is a deck I have had for over 20 years. I use it for my own readings. 

SOMA is the elixir of LIFE, a hallucinogenic magic mushroom. The  Native American Church and the Santo Dieme religion from Brasil venerates ayahuasca as a sacramental spiritual medicine tool which shamans use to heal patients on all levels.

SOMA is the taste of Enlightenment. It’s both the light and the dark sides of the dream. One can get high on visions alone, with need no of psychadelic plants. 

LESSON

Pay attention to your dreams and intuition. Use the planetary energies now to guide you in the night dreams, your meditations and the waking dream. Feed your head. Pay attention to synchronicities.
