Pluto Retrograde Psychopomp time


Pluto turns Retrograde April 22 Earth Day as the Psychopomp-I love that word- descends to Hades the Underworld deep in the earth.

Pluto will be visiting his home turf until September 30th so this is a good long 5 + months journey into Plutoland. 

This is the realm of the shadow our own psychological aspects which we need to understand and know. The subconscious does not speak in words but in symbols and images like in our dreams. The unconscious is transpersonal archetypal and transhuman. It is where our imagination our souls and our eternal selves live.

How exciting that these realms are easier to touch while Pluto is Retrograde in Capricorn. 

We may have to revisit retrace review and retouch the things we went through since the beginning of the year.

Moon is in Cancer the sign of the Mother on Earth Day until the afternoon in EDT

LEO MOON royal radiates the mood of the next couple of days.

Moon trines Chiron in ARIES 

You may discover a new kind of a thorn in the paw of the lion.

MOON squares SUN- we are a week from a powerful FULL MOON IN SCORPIO in the 29th

One of the most intensely powerful Full Moons of the year.

Moon trines MERCURY in PDT/ next day in EDT/ GMT

Connects our hearts with our minds. Think like a Queen or King.

Mars square the Nodes of Fate, Earth Day

Mars is at Zero degrees GEMINI today on Earth day 2017.

mother earth climate change Tara Greene

Earth Day started in 1970, according to Wikipedia.  The first Earth Day celebrations took place in two thousand colleges and universities, roughly ten thousand primary and secondary schools, and hundreds of communities across the United States. More importantly, it “brought 20 million Americans out into the spring sunshine for peaceful demonstrations in favor of environmental reform.” It now is observed in 192 countries, and coordinated by the nonprofit Earth Day Network, chaired by the first Earth Day 1970 organizer Denis Hayes, according to whom Earth Day is now “the largest secular holiday in the world, celebrated by more than a billion people every year.” Environmental groups have sought to make Earth Day into a day of action to change human behavior and provoke policy changes.”

New Age author and artist Jose Arguelles, claims he was also one of the originators of the Earth Day concept (due in part to the influence of astrologer Dane Rudhyar), Argüelles founded the first Whole Earth Festival in 1970, at Davis, California.

The Earth MOTHER GAIA greatly needs us to help stop the exploitation and rape of her natural resources,  such as oil, coal, gold, natural gas, silver, uranium, copper, and water. 

The current Trump administration is hell-bent on exploiting and destroying the earth for profit only and first. Their capitalist 1% approach denies the need to seek balance in the eco-system, with the natural environment and is flagrantly destructive, flying in the face of any common sense. If fracking has caused water to catch fire, hundreds of earthquakes, polluting of water tables, and destruction of water habitat with supposed “protection measures” what happens now?

Whether you believe in man mad climate change or not, whatever its cause, we need to stop polluting and harming and wastefully using up precious resources which are not infinite. The oceans are full of plastic garbage, bees are endangered from using Round Up and other toxic harmful chemicals on crops. Without bees, there is no food production. Artificially messing with nature creates havoc over and over again. Monsanto and GMO foods are destroying whole populations DNA.  Most people are unaware of the dangerous toxins in most cities water supplies now. There is not enough clean water in many parts of the world now what happens in 10 years? or 20? 

Native Indigenous people lived by the motto. ” What we do now affects the next seven generations.”  If only we thought that way or there will be no next seven generations.

MARS is at zero degrees  of GEMINI in square to the NORTH Node of Fate in VIRGO and SOUTH Node in PISCES.

This is exact on the 23rd at 1+ degree GEMINI/VIRGO/PISCES

Mars will be within 5 degrees of the Nodes until April 29

The NODES Of FATE show us our highest spiritual goal, The North node is just that, the “True North” the South Node represents our unconscious or regressive past. If we are conscious and have examined our pasts, we can use and build upon the knowledge we have learned to help us move forwards to a bright new future. If we don’t learn from the past we are condemned to repeat it unconsciously.

Mars in GEMINI is action through communication. Mars in Gemini needs to weigh out both options, both sides. We need to make up our minds one way or another on what we will do to take action {Mars} about this issue about the environment, the right use of resources and our collective future on earth.

Mars in GEMINI with the Nodes of fate also affect our personal lives. If you have planets or angles near the first 5 degrees of SAGITTARIUS, you will be affected by a MUTABLE GRAND CROSS.  Stay flexible in these cross hairs. 

Mars in GEMINI to the Nodes asks us to make decisions about what we desire to communicate and what we need to let go of  with the South Node in PISCES. Do we need to forgive someone? ourselves? or simply let it go. 

We may want to think back on the last 17 months of our collective and personal journey through the North Node in VIRGO/south Pisces. Have you had work, health, community, being OCD and pet issues. And have you being dealing with addictions of all kinds, betrayals, self-sabotage, martyrdom, co-dependence, denial, drugs, illusions, false gurus, spiritual seeker junky, debts, mental illness? 

Think wisely about this turning point. Clear your mind to be ready for this bold new adventure. We are all golden.

Rainbow Bridges, Earth Day Trines

Rainbow bridge astrology Tara Greene

VERY RARE double and quadruple rainbows appeared April 21 in Long Island, New York

Rainbows have always symbolized rainbow bridges from Heaven as answers to prayers.

 “As above so below”  they are a sacred bridge between the earth and the heavens.

The seven colors of the Rainbows are the same as the chakra’s in our bodies.

If you have been praying for a sign. This is it.

If one person  photographs this, they are one cell in the body of all of our awareness and consciousness. We are one Galactic Human. 

If you are reading this then your prayers have already been answered. No matter what it looks like. No matter how many obstacles seem to be in the way. We have all received this sign collectively via the web which is a machine created to imitate the real interconnectivity of each one of us with every cell and atom in the universe.

It’s EARTH DAY April 22 

Earth Day astrology Tara Greene

Meditate today about your body being made up of all the elements of the earth. 

MERCURY and MARS in TAURUS TRINE PLUTO and LILITH in VIRGO on EARTH day. 

Earth Day, Mothers Day, Tara Greene astrology

I had a Freudian slip and I wrote Tartarus which is actually another place like Hades only even further down. It is the Christian form of Hell where the wicked are punished. 

The Mars Pluto Earth trine connects to Mercury today and LILITH in VIRGO. 

The wounded healer Chiron is opposite to Lilith- showing us where it hurts, in our hearts and our souls and on the earth. We will feel where the earth is aching in our own bodies. My lower back has been hurting the last few days.

Chiron is sextiling Mercury Mars and Pluto. VENUS in GEMINI is squaring Lilith, sextiling Jupiter in Leo and creating a YOD or a Finger of God/dess to PLUTO.  Pluto and Chiron are forming a Finger of Yod back to Jupiter in Leo. YOd’s focus the energy to transformation, death and rebirth.

Saturn in Sagittarius is squaring Neptune in PISCES are dream of a just, honest, natural earthly paradise. 

The Moon is on the NOrth STAR at 27 degrees GEMINI opposite the Galactic Center  at 7:02 pm EDT when Mercury conjuncts Mars. We  can connect with the center of the Galaxy for cosmic infinite wisdom.

The Moon moves into Cancer at 9:25 pm PDT, to make us  aware of our hearts, of the waters of the earth and how we need to protect the waters. We are all birthed from the waters of women’s wombs and the earth needs our protection too.

Everything is connected. 

This is such a powerful earthy trine for this day, now 45 years old April 22 2015.

The awareness of having to honor the earth has gathered but the raping and pillaging of the earths resources has gone unabated, driven by corporate greed. Scientists say that 75% of known fossil fuels must stay in the ground.

The grand trines really makes us aware of our earthly plight and takes us into the bowels of the earth where we can listen to Her Voice. 

Lilith is powerful now. The Lilith in Virgo energy can really clean up any mess. She is just like the earth herself, the same way we rape make invisible and use women is exactly the same way we rape and use the earth. Pluto is the Masculine version of Lilith. She is older than Pluto. Lilith was the original woman. So we need to listen to her deeply, receptive, openly and fearlessly now if we want to get back to the garden. 

We need to anchor this massive transformative energy Pluto is the s-o-w–e-s-t moving planet right now. He rules the lower consciousness of the earth, the shadows as well as the power to transforming them. He is in “right relationship” with Lilith and the mind of Mercury and the actions of Mars and in Capricorn Pluto will move and destroy mountains.. 

On Earth day, and for  longer, some people honor earth week. Really get into your body, do yoga, make sure you walk in nature. Breathe through the soles of your feet.

CEREMONY and ritual and Meditation to honor the earth

You will need corn meal, yellow,white or blue will do. If you can be Out in nature on the earth it is better and if not then at  your sacred alter or space in your home, do this ritual or create your own.

Begin in the East where the Sun rises, call in the powers of the SUN and  offer corn meal to Grandfather Sun and to GrandMother Earth. Tell Grandfather Sun thanks, state why and what you are grateful for. Ask to live from SPIRIT, from the Light, from source, from the stars, and shed light, and consciousness wherever you are. 

ASK: close your eyes, breathe: What part of Light may I shine here to create unity with the earth and the Spirit and the Feminine? How can I live from the sacred FIRE?  stay with this…

Turn clockwise and call in the powers of the South,WATER, and offer cornmeal to the oceans, rivers, lakes and streams. Say prayers to the waters and visualize pure clean radiant energy from your heart to all the waters of the earth until you sense them purified. Send energy especially to Fukushima and other polluted places.  Send prayers to the fish, whales and dolphins, sea lions, narwhals, manatees and other creatures. 

ASK:close your eye, breathe and ask: What can I do to honor my heart,  my feelings and intuition? How can I protect the prescious waters? How can I conserve more? How can we ensure there is clean water for all?

Turn and face West, this is the direction of the EARTH. Offer cornmeal to the Earth Mother Herself. Send prayers to the parts of the earth which man is destroying daily, forrests,through strip mining, toxic chemical dumps, the Alberta Tar sands, in China, New Guinea, Brazil, in the Arctic and Antarctic.  Send your love and deep gratitude for being alive on our beautiful mother which we all have in common.  Send prayers of healing to all living beings, all humans and all creatures alive and all the rocks and crystals.

ASK: close your eyes, breathe and ask: What can I do by honoring my body as a temple and the earth also as Holy Ground, a sacred place? I ask for guidance to love nurture and care for the earth and all the creatures. How can I live and live in harmony on the earth. 

Move to the NORTH, the direction of AIR. Offer cornmeal to the air and sky spirits. Throw it up into the air.  Send prayers to the clean skies, to the tress, winds, birds, clouds, rainbows, storms, thunder and lightning spirits. Send prayers to the hurricanes and tornadoes. Send gratitude for the beautiful sky in the day, the sunsets and dawns, to the gorgeous sky and all the stars at night. 

ASK: close your eyes, breathe: What can i do to breathe more deeply and slowly? How can the air I breathe help raise my consciousness about pollution, deforestation and air quality?  How can I learn to listen to the weather and  the atmosphere and the stars? What can I do to help keep the air clean and pure for the next 7 generations?

Listen for the synchronicity and the answers.

Earth Day # 44, loving Mother Earth everyday, Astrology, Tara Greene

This is the 44th EARTH DAY and it is pinned down and to accentuated by the GRAND CARDINAL CROSS.

the #44 in Numerology is a Master Number. Twice Master Number 22 or  zero, symbolized by The FOOL or ENLIGHTENMENT.

Number 44 is 22 x 2 which is all the Hebrew letters and Tarot card Majors doubled. In the Kabbalah, the doubling is an evil or cliphot influence, signifying duality, separation, instead of UNION.

#4 is the number of the earth, the 4 elements, the 4 directions, the material plane. It is physical, “real”, practical.
According to some people, #44 in angel numbers is associated with paying attention to your INTUITION and inner wisdom. Also protection by the Angels. 

#4 = the EMPEROR in the TAROT which is associated with ARIES.
#44 is dual Emperors. Side by side, twin Emperors, double strength leaders, Kings, warriors, innovators.

 EMPEROR SFORZA Tarot 

                                         Haindl Tarot Tara Greene psychic THE EMPEROR HAINDL tarot 

EARTH DAY is NOT JUST APRIL 22 one day. EARTH DAY is everyday.

I feel that the GRAND CARDINAL CROSS is an initiation in to a new beginning.

PLuto in Capricorn is the EARTH, Jupiter in Cancer is water the oceans, Mars in Libra is the air, Uranus in Aries is fire, action.

 

The sign of CANCER is home, the Mother, Mother Earth. the planets clearly show that we need to rebalance where we are out of integrity with Mother EARTH who cares for all of us equally, all her children, that means all life forms, animals and creatures. We have been desecrating destroying, raping, dominating, fracking and pillaging her resources without any forethought of the consequences for the last many hundreds of years, since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution in the Western world.

Rachel Carson’s environmental book Silent Spring was published on Sept 27 1962 and is the Grandmother of the environment movement. Canadian scientist Dr. David Suzuki started warning people about environmental disaster over 30 years ago.

We are on the brink of NO RETURN NOW!

We must clean up our acts or we will all die.

We must clean up our acts or we will all die.

It can be done with consciousness, with spiritual energy, so do not fear.

MEDITATION to bring in GRAND CARDINAL CROSS ENERGY For the earth.

It’s best to be on the land itself in Nature or imagine yourself in a beautiful harmonious place in Nature.

Cleanse your aura and space by smudging first, you can use incense. Go into your sacred inner space through breath work. Call in the 4 directions. I start with the East, but different traditions begin with the North or the South.

Light 4 candles in your imagination or for real.
See the cross of matter, the 4 elements joined within your heart at the center.

The rest of this ceremony/meditation is to honor the earth Mother through the Cardinal Cross of the four elements. From your heart, send your love to her, thank her,with true gratitude.

Ask your Higher Self or Guardian Angel{s}  to come into your heart and the circle of elements. Spirit  is the 5th element in Chinese and ancient mysticism.
My INTUITION sees two angels on either side of each individual.
Sit with the feeling, vision, intuitive sense of your Guardian Angel being in your heart, and connecting to the 4 elements and to Mother Earth for as long as you can. Your heart is the CRUX, the center of the Grand Cardinal Cross.
Ask your higher self what you can do to help bring balance and harmony to Mother Earth.
Ask what part are you meant to play personally in the Grand Cardinal Cross initiation.
Ask what you need to bring balance within your own body, which is composed of the 4 elements.

Ask how you are to do this.

Make a vow on the 4 elements to do one thing every day to honor your Mother the Earth and to help bring balance, respect and honor to her. It could be never using plastic bags again or plastic water bottles again. There are thousands of ways and things to do.
When you feel ready, thank the Angels, the 4 directions and spirits and release them back to their specific directions.

Write down whatever messages you received and place them on a wall or mirror where you can see them everyday.

MOON entered AQUARIUS early in the a.m. EDT. April 22

MOTHER EARTH SONG by Wendy Loesje Blond   

EARTH DAY healing Channelled messages from the mother by Tara Greene

April 22 is EARTH DAY

Started in 1970 the first EARTH DAY saw 20 million Americans came out to demonstrate for environmental protection and awareness.  Since 2009 it has been celebrated as INTERNATIONAL MOTHER EARTH DAY now celebrated in 192 countries with over a billion people world-wide participating. It’s coordinated by non-profit EARTH DAY NETWORK.

We are all the children of ONE MOTHER who provides all of our nourishment. the EARTH.

the Moon is fittingly in VIRGO, an earth sign of service, hard work, analysis, perfectionism, accountability.

VENUS in TAURUS is Opposite Saturn in Scorpio -perfect.

Love of the earth opposed to DEATH

FOOD is # 1 major issue

MONSANTO CORPORATION is a FOOD TERRORIST

President Obama passed that hideous Monsanto protection Bill. WHY?

FIGHT THIS BILL, get organized and educated. 

MONSANTO and its GMO FRANKENFOOD and suicidal seeds are one of the world’s biggest threat to human consciousness.

Be aware! in Hungary the people simply burned all their crops and seeds in protest of Monsanto.

In Most of Europe GMO seeds and food have been  banned. PERU and Bolivia have banned GMO seeds.

This is an insidious dangerous planned starvation fascist corporate food coup.

Most people are not aware of the dangers. Chemically introduced “Progress” is usually bad for every one’s health.

Monsanto is planning to use ROBOT drone bees  on their crops and are killing nature’s bees.

The ones that fertilize all flowers and make life sweet with honey.

PROTEST Atomic power plants and radioactive dump sites

 FUKUSHIMA continues to leak radioactive poisons into the ocean and air for over two years

the damage is not being reported truthfully in the mainstream media,

there was another recent spill. Do NOT eat any fish from the Pacific. 

There are tons of toxins everywhere in all the rivers lakes and oceans, in the ground, in the atmosphere

the Alberta Oil sands in Canada is a horrible polluter, shame on CANADA for renegging on KYOTO PROTOCOL

The oil rig leaks in the Gulf of Mexico caused tremendous environmental damage

yet they haven’t been totally stopped.

We need to get off the addiction to OIL and PETROLEUM products.

Shift to free solar, wind, ocean power. TESLA technology. Environmentally self renewing products

they are here already!  we can use Technology to clean up and invent new clean abundant cheap resources.

Generations are getting sicker younger. Species are dying.

We need to radically change everything about how we live, consume, eat, think.

Time is short, we have been too short-sighted. 

CARD for the DAY  – PRINCE OF SWORDS

FAiry Tale Tarot

The FAIRY TALE TAROT 

The Prince of Swords usually shows a young man with a sword.

I chose the Fairy Tale Tarot as it resonated with me as Thumbelina symbolizing all of us as humans on this 43rd Earth Day

Tiny, caught by the Mole= the dark, Scorpio, secret power, control hungry Corporations Plutocrats of the world.

Thumbelina manages to escape and because she is a kind-hearted soul, nature helps her, 

in the illustrations swans come and build her a basket to fly her to safety. 

Each person may be small, but when we initiate radical hopes, ideas, freedom from tyranny

the swords symbolize mind, wind, breath, we can use our imaginations and words to soar.

The Spirit of the Winds and of Mother EARTH have spoken to me the last few days,

“Slow down, stop the world, turn the other way, hold together

good-hearted people will thrive and survive

support each other, get informed, use your mind to connect the dots,

see where the foul winds originate, 

Propitiate the Goddess, come and heal the earth and her children, your children

Make a vow to kiss the ground each day, kiss your  Mother,

Be gentle to her, she is alive. If she doesn’t thrive humanity  doesn’t survive,

STOP THE RAPE OF THE EARTH

Put back what has been brutally stolen, her oil, metals, gold, 

Women must take their rightful place as nurturers of the earth,they are the earth

Once their monthly blood was sacred and returned to the earth to nurture new crops,

Rituals must be create to transmute the poisons in the oceans, on the land, and air,

You must go back to nature, that is why you are so lost, so scattered.

In every way from birth to death you must strip away the layers of poison from your body,

its in your cells,your DNA, your way of life,

I love you all as my children. ” -end of message

The time has come to renew the earth and ourselves before it is too late.

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.
