April Fool’s Resurrection Day

Happy April Fool’s Day 

In the Tarot the Fool is the wisest card in the deck. The Fool is numbered ZERO and 22 a Master Number. Zero symbolizes enlightenment. It is wholeness completion- a round a cycle of infinite movement.It is nothing or the Void of total potential.

The Fool is the first and the last. The Alpha and the Omega. As in the Book of Revelations ” I am the Alpha and the Omega the First and the Last the Beginning and the End.” Which was always the ” Charge of the Star Goddess” I am that which has been with you from the beginning and will be with you at the end.” 

The Fool symbolizes the soul embarking on a new journey into incarnation. The Fool symbolizes Trust and innocence. The very first time a person has a Tarot reading they are embodying the energy of the Fool. 

SUN conjuncts MERCURY RETROGRADE in ARIES at 12 degrees

Relight your mind. Focus the Sun’s light to burn the old scripts. Revisit old mental grooves that do not compute to who you are and with what you are growing into and where you are going right now. 

All new beginnings need to be revisited. Mental frustration is high. Aries hates to stop slow down or be told what to do. 

MARS and SATURN conjunct April 2 at 9 Capricorn squaring Sun/Mercury 

Mars Saturn Conjunction Tara Greene

 Mars rules Aries and he is in Saturn’s rulership.This is a fated heavy end and beginning of a new cycle. Be very clear to release old karmic debts and scripts and take responsibility for what you have created. There are always two sides to karma- and Mercury is dual natured. 

There is a trickster aspect going on here as well. Don’t let your mind play tricks on you. Use the Sun’s clarity to decide what is yours and what is theirs and where you responsibility lies and what you can do to build a new foundation.

MARS is aggressive and Saturn is reality and holds down that impulsive Martial spiritual energy.Saturn makes you responsible disciplined orderly and mature. If you work very hard with Saturn he will give you great benefits.

So plan now for when Mercury goes Direct and resolve to honor Saturn’s hard working ethics to get great rewards. Sun conjuncts MERCURY and Mars conjunct SATURN-The Light and The Dark. The two heavies Mars-Saturn get together to provide structure limits and bones to review old mental karmic scripts which may be purged now.

Mars/Saturn in CAPRICORN dispels Neptunian illusions delusions and projections energies as MARS/SATURN sextiles the dreamy planet. 

Yes, the Mars/Saturn energy is very heavy and can bring on feelings of depression of restriction and limitation.Depression is also part of the healing journey if done in awareness.What is the depression all about? Rather than avoiding and avoiding it through addictions and reflexive- stiff upper lips- all business Capricorn and Pisces energy. Welcome the depression as an elder wise guide.Everything is energy and everything has at root a positive intention if it can be transformed. 

This aspect on EASTER is very synchronous as one of my Favourite writers James Hillman the late Jungian rebel psychotherapist said in his compliation book A Blue Fire.

which also rings so well with this rare BLUE MOON.

“Depression. Becasue Christ resurrects moments of despair darkening and desertion cannot be valid in themselves. Our new model insists on light at the end of the tunnel;  It must be necessary for it appears in the crucifixion and it must be suffering but staying depressed must be must be  negative since in the Christian allegory Friday is never valid per se for Sunday- as in integral part of the myth is preexistent in Friday from the start. 

” Yet through depression, we enter depths and find soul. The true revolution beings in the individual who can be true to his to her depression.” 

 

or as Poet Robert Frost said: “The best way out is through.”

Wishing you a blessed Easter Resurrection and fertility time. Easter is Eostre/Ostara ancient fertility Goddesses whose symbols of reproduction and new life were eggs and rabbits.

Rare Blue Moon Easter Rebirth

Hope for clear skies and if you are a magician or witch you can get outside and move the clouds to see this Rare Blue Full Moon in LIBRA.

We won’t see another Blue Moon until October 2020 and not another Blue Moon in March until 2037. Only 3% of all Full Moons are blue. To have two in consecutive months is very rare. While Blue Moon’s have no actual astronomical or astrology meaning pop science- clickbait has played this up. It is simply a Gregorian calendrical occurrence.

The nitty gritty of this LIBRA FULL MOON @ 11 degrees LIBRA

HEAVY KARMIC MARS SATURN conjunction squaring both the Sun conjunct Retrograde MERCURY and the Moon.

This is a very tense heavy fated time of energetic endings conclusions and structuring.  MARS and SATURN in combo are called the “Great Malefics” they are the worst combo of antiquity astrology. They are considered enemy planets yet Mars is considered to be exalted in earth Cardinal Capricorn.  Because all that rocket fuel testosterone wild man energy of MARS is held in strict discipline by SATURN. It’s a tough Man up drive required to make a stand in the world. Their conjunction is exact on April 2nd and very ponderous. I don’t know about you but I was really exhausted today. Mars is firey energy action aggressive movement spontaneousness aggression guns and war.

SATURN is the REALITY and FATHER principle-The Patriarchy history seniors senators age time- 3rd dimensional limitation obstacles and lead. Saturn rules serious commitments architecture the skeletal system. This is a heavy driving with the breaks on which can be very frustrating. In your personal life, many may be feeling like we have hit a wall. You can also use this energy positively with great effort to take on a new resolve job career or discipline.

VENUS is the ruler of LIBRA and she has just entered her feminine home sign of TAURUS. Venus is really in her power in the sensuous artistic creative romantic resourceful 2nd sign. Venus is also Trining Vesta at the Last degree of SAGITTARIUS another final lesson in focussing our wills. 

LIBRA is traditionally the sign of marriage balance equality and justice. It is an AIR sign related to analyzing and intellectualizing of relationships. Symbolized by the Card #8 or #11 JUSTICE in the Tarot. 

A power-packed solid Masculine earthy energy is in a wide Trine to VENUS in TAURUS. The main message of this Blue Moon is to balance the relationship field to equality between men and women and within ourselves. There is resistance from Mars and SATURN to Aries Sun of actions initiating and a Retrograde Mercury which makes us retrace older steps. Libra needs to honor the needs of others. We can see these planets clearly reflected in many of the current political situations in the world both positively and negatively. 

PLUTO is still in square with Eris and URANUS

This is a higher degree of the same Cardinal Crosses which are pushing and pulling for intense transformation freedom breakdown of old corporate Plutocracy. Pluto rules waste garbage and recycling. If a culture isn’t conscious of its own archetypal soul drives and needs and it has drifted into materialistic consumerism superficiality or 1% ruling the mountain then it needs to fall apart. Pluto will do that it takes many years and it is in process. 

CHIRON @ 29th last CRITICAL Degree of PISCES squares VESTA in SAGITTARIUS

This is a very painful time but also a huge opportunity to heal many ancient wounds and karmic patterns now. It is vital to be vulnerable to drop the masks and defenses and to allow our wounds to be fully felt because this is the only way to find healing. Allow yourself to feel the whole range of denied feelings -grief rage suffering shame anxiety pain losses self-sabotage martyrdom depression rejection self-hate abandonment criticism addictions and delusions within.The last degree in the Zodiac is the most powerful as it symbolizes the end of the journey; completion and returning to Source.

Retrograde JUPITER- remember him is also trine Chiron helping us to go down to the blackest depths of the soul to find the light. 

The Moon is sextiling North Node in LEO making a Yod to Neptune in PISCES

The best way to find balance at this Blue Moon is to see everything through the reflection of spirit/God/goddess in each other. 

John Sandbach’s Chandra symbol for this degree is

“Pisces 30. A dense forest of organ pipes. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Inspired

(Degree Angel: Mumiah (MOO-mee-YAH) Spiritual Cleansing, Endings and Rebirth)

This degree is aware of the vast number of possibilities in life and of the music that can arrive from all the potential interactions with the universe around it. What is to meet this plethora is the inspiration coming from inside – the music that arises from the self and is played out in lifetimes. The more we allow ourselves to flow the more what is most needed and beneficial for us will come forth from the inside as well as meet us from the outside. This is the truth of this degree.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A large halo in ring formation around the moon.” Pisces is the sign of acceptance, and here in its last degree acceptance reaches completion. So often we think we have accepted something only to find there are deeper levels to which we may go in this process. It is easy to accept what is beautiful and wonderful, but to accept all the rest, the ugly, the sad, the scary, the terrifying, that is where there is so much more of a tendency to reject or deny. This degree thinks in terms of bringing all emotions into the fold of the great and complete family of emotions, and the magic of it is finding that when all are accepted, the spiritual radiance reaches perfection, and we achieve the release for which we have been searching all along.

Pleiadian Symbol: A seer, on his back and gazing into the sky, becomes a channel for cosmic messages. 

Azoth Symbol: An object of great beauty unearthed.

Seed degree: 30 Pisces is its own seed degree

Fulfillment degree: 30 Pisces is its own fulfillment degree” http://john-sandbach.blogspot.ca/2010/05/167-omegachandra-symbols-Pisces-26-30.html

Chiron will enter ARIES APRIL 17

the same day as SATURN turns Retrograde in PDT/ April 18 in EDT and GMT heralding a new 50-year cycle.Chiron retrogrades back into PISCES for another go-round on September 25 and finally re-enters ARIES on February 18, 2019, until April 14, 2027 a brand new healing adventure begins.

Political Messengers from spirit

#BirdieSanders, Tara Greene
#BirdieSanders bird, a wild finch who flew in to sit on Bernie Sanders podium in Portland Oregon on Good Friday is a manifestation of a miracle or the DIVINE. An example of real synchronicity.  Bernie Sanders had just said “this little bird.” and right on cue a wild common finch appeared. You can see on Bernie’s face how real the moment is. The crowd cheers and still the little bird sits.
 
Birds are always very powerful symbols, especially in The Bible. I am not Christian but Christ’s spirit is always symbolized by a dove.
Bernie said “I know it doesn’t look like it but this bird is really a dove asking us for world peace. No more wars.”
Now you may think Bernie Sanders is for the birds, but the birds are definitely for him. 
The dove is the bird of VENUS and she was opposite Jupiter March 25 and square to Saturn in Sagittarius which is politics.  This bird visitation will bring further cred and good to Mr. Sanders as Venus sextiles Pluto in Capricorn, sign of career power. 
What do birds symbolize in various mythologies?
From my copy of ‘An illustrated encylopaedia of traditional symbols”
Birds symbolize; ” Transcendance, the soul, a divine manifestation,spirits of the air, ability to communicate with gods or to enter into a Higher state of consciousness,
Birds frequently accompany the Hero on his quest or in slaying the dragon, giving him secret advice { a little bird told me so}.
This ability symbolizes Heavenly communication or the help of celestial powers, such as angels.
Buddhism: the bird symbolizes Lord Buddha and auspiciousness.
Celtic: magic power, divinity and happiness.
Egyptian mythology: the Bennu- sounds like Bernie Bird incarnates the soul of Osiris and is equated with the Phoenix. Birds symbolize the creative principle, producers of the Cosmic Egg.
HINDU: Birds symbolize intelligence. “Intelligence is the swiftest of birds”-Rig Veda. “He who understands has wings.”
GARUDA is the Bird of LIfe, the sky, the Sun, Victory.
MAORI: The Bird Man is the divinity, the all-seeing, the all-wise.
 
and more “When finches come into our awareness it is a sure sign of prosperous and joyous times ahead. Finches are an omen of high energy and bright days on the horizon. Natives held the finch as a symbol of upcoming celebration. Finches are song birds, and their music heralds the bounty of spring. When the finch sings to our awareness it is a beckoning to unleash our own song. If we’ve been concealing our brilliance from the world – the finch is a sign to start making our value more audible and available to others. Its bird meaning deals with sociability too, and if the finch comes into your life it may be a signal to get more involved with social activities.”
 
Birds are of nature, and this little bird came as a messenger from nature to give its support to Bernie Sanders and his message of peace and hope. WOW I am floored.   Maybe even hard-core Bible Belter Christians will get the symbolism here? 
 
This was a supernatural occurrence. Vote for Bernie, vote for having your heart in the right place. Then magic happens. Don’t listen to the polls saying Bernie can’t win. This is a sign that he can. There is Divine intervention happening. .

“Hope” is the thing with feathers
(BY EMILY DICKINSON)

“Hope” is the thing with feathers –
That perches in the soul –
And sings the tune without the words –
And never stops – at all –

And sweetest – in the Gale – is heard –
And sore must be the storm –
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm –

I’ve heard it in the chillest land –
And on the strangest Sea –
Yet – never – in Extremity,
It asked a crumb – of me.

Seven to do’s because it’s Saturn Retrograde

It may take a while till we feel the effects of the Lunar eclipse. But there is a lot still happening.

The SUN conjoined MERCURY March 23 after the eclipse.

This sparks  new energy and new ideas. The eclipse was very close to the Zero degree ARIES world point. This is a true turning point. Ultimately new thinking caps and new bright ideas will emerge.

March 24  Mercury @ 5+ DEGREES ARIES trines Mars in Sagittarius @ 3:45 pm PDT/ 6:45 pm EDT

Under a void-of- course Moon. This is an upbeat pursuit of truth, adventure, travelling, optimism and justice. Be daring, be bold, be passionate. 

It’s GOOD FRIDAY March 25

The archetypal story of an anointed Higher consciousness being, called Yeshua or Jesus, knows he must die and sacrifice himself for a Higher Purpose, traditionally to the Great Mother, as a martyr to bring higher consciousness to the world. The story of death and rebirth is a terribly ancient one, since humans first became conscious. All life is a continuous unending cycle of birth death and transformation.  That is under Saturn’s realm.  Easter in the Bible was tied into the Jewish Festival of Passover which is based on a lunar calendar. Usually the two coincide but this year Passover is very late and begins April 22 on a Full Moon. 

The real meaning of EASTER or OESTRE is an ancient pagan fertility festival tied to Spring. 

rabbits, easter, hare, Goddess, tara Greene

Kelly Louise Judd image

ISHTAR, ASTARTE , TARA, OESTRE ancient Goddesses of fertility were honored with symbols of hares, sacred to the Moon, the lunar monthly fertility counter, and rabbits which are very fertile. The symbols of eggs and rabbits were taken on as an overlay on ancient festivals by the Christians. Anyone who studied pagan symbolism can easily see this. 

SATURN TURNS RETROGRADE  March 25 @ 16+ SAGITTARIUS, 3:00 am PDT/ 6:00 am EDT/ 10:00 a.m. UT

LORD OF TIME STANDSTILL and begins to slowly turn the Karmic  wheel backwards. 

wheel of Time, Tara Greene Buddhist

The GREAT WHEEL OF TIME BUDDHIST interpretation

WHAT’s IT ALL ABOUT?

We are going into DEJA VU time, as the Great wheel of time slows and appears to revolve backwards until August 14th where Saturn will be at 9 degrees 47 minutes of Sagittarius. Lets think back as to where we are headed in that future and where we were. Saturn was last at 9 degrees 47 minutes of Sagittarius on December 20, 2015, think back what you were doing and what you were planning for 2016.

SATURN in SAGITTARIUS is very optimistic, altruistic, honest to a fault, pursues justice, higher  philosophical perspectives, education and relating to exotic and foreign things, persons and travel. Saturn rules the Patriarchy, authority, the old boys network, history. In Sagittarius this is politics.  Expect a total change in the political run for president now over the next few months. Sagittarius reveals the truth. 

JUPITER’s square to  SATURN right now amplifies the more optimistic side and expands Saturn’s usually cynical bitter restricting influence on any sign. This  is positive and pressuring. As Saturn moves slowly backwards it is like going through a wormhole or time tunnel, we get to go back to the past to change the future. 

Saturn Retrograde gives us tine to mature,to work on things. It’s like the necessary time spent to let the dough rise, or setting a bottle of wine away. You cannot rush when something is ready. Use this time wisely to carefully craft your master plan, because all of Saturn’s energy has to do with long term goals, career, commitments, maturity and plans. 

Some commitments may break up now or at least must be reexamined. Honesty is truly the best currency now. 

We will have to go back to the drawing board where all ideas are conceived and nurture tweak and reset them in stone before they can really begin to be birthed next August. 

Saturn in the TAROT is THE DEVIL #15. Ultimately the DEVIL is the material plane. Temptation. EGO. It is ultimately not real. This can be a good time to revisit what your fears are. Are you being governed by your ego? What devils do you project onto others? This is a pretty hot topic now. 

SEVEN TO DO’s while SATURN IS RETROGRADE

1. Revisit all your goals for 2016.

This is important to do now as there are energy shifts coming in the fall. It’s OK to change your plans.

2. Scrap what you are not fully committed to

Only put your energy into long-term goals that you are really into for the long run. Its better to focus on one higher goal.Draw out what your peak looks like, why you want it and what you expect from it.

3. Re-commit your vows, in a relationship or in your career .

This is a good time to remake vows, personal and relationship. Second that emotion. Saturn rules career, redraw a career mandala or where you see yourself in 7, 14 years. 

4. Ask the advise of a mentor or more mature person’s experience. 

This is good to do now. You will be more open to hearing their advice. Also think about your retirement or any long-term distant goals and how to plan for it.

5. Finish up old legal, tax or educational courses. 

Saturn is the tax man, get any old unfinished business done. Immigration, wills or other legal matters of this sort should be finished over the next few months. Finish up the courses already.

6. Honor your father and any male person who helped you

Visit your dad, and honor him whether alive or dead for the karmic lessons he gave you. For some this may be good and for others painful. If there are old childhood wounds this is a good time to let that pain out. Inner child work is very important.  

Tell someone you respect a male teacher, how they helped impact your life It’s important to tell that person how he helped make a difference in your life. Call him, email or meet in person, or send an old-fashioned letter by mail. 

7. Learn to use your time more wisely.

Time is a very precious commodity and it goes faster these days. Manage it wisely.

Fire Trines, collective projections, water

March 19 GRAND FIRE TRINE LEO MOON trines SATURN in SAGITTARIUS

– be wild and free and Moon TRINES URANUS in ARIES-be wilder and even freer.

http://giphy.com/gifs/alejandro-jodorowsky-santa-sangre-bFPEGZU1kU2S4

 

Things are also doubly inconjunct between the proud Mary Leo moon and Pluto Lord of the underworld.  You know the old saying, don’t let pride come before the fall. 

The drama loving Leo Moon is inconjunct /quincunx {150 degrees } to Chiron, the Lord of Pain and wounds and also where the greatest healing and vulnerability are and the SOUTH  NODE, both at 21+ degrees PISCES.

This aspect is really throbbingly painful now. The collective Unconscious soul wounds of the past, as symbolized by the South node, is a deep karmic scar in the psyche. The  symbol of martyrdom and sacrificial wounding from the Age of Pisces, is hurting terribly. This has so much to do with the rejection of, and the return of the Divine Feminine.

PISCES is ultimately the COSMIC WOMB from which all life on earth and symbolically emanated. The wounds of denying the mother, our earth, the need to love and be loved, the ability to be compassionate; our inherent humanity and oneness, and the sacred life force is showing as projections onto others. This is also literally huge problems with water and the oceans.

Sept 27, 2015 – TOTAL Lunar eclipse Aries – “I am”

This Eclipse carries multiple layers of symbols and meanings all of which teach us what needs to be worked on and with. This first part is a meditation with background information for you to use.

This Total lunar eclipse is all about communications, feelings and LIBRA is relationships. We need to think back to where our relationships were a year ago on the Total Lunar Eclipse Blood Moon on Passover April 15, 2014 at 25 degrees Libra.  The next trigger in this sequence was the October 8 Total Lunar eclipse at 15 degrees of ARIES exactly opposite to this one.  We are needing to take the opposite position from where we were then. More on the I-THOU relationship issue.

The eclipse happens at  the most powerful degree of LIBRA, the 15th  which symbolizes that  this eclipse is all about relationships; peace, harmony, beauty, balance, justice. All about seeing oneself in others. The I-thou relationship is clearly marked. We are all one blood.

The Full Moon itself is always a symbol of a fertilized ovum, as the Moon and women’s menstrual cycles are synchronized in natural harmony. This TOTAL eclipse further amps up the meaning and the unconscious sexual instinct to mate, to procreate, an ancient biological necessity.

The Full Moon being eclipsed symbolizes a huge fertile, creative potential to the LIBRA energy of a new masculine and new feminine and to bring them into a balanced relationship of equals; loving, respecting, sharing and caring for each other and the world.

PASSOVER and EASTER

The Blood MOON Total Eclipse occurs during the weekend of Passover and Easter combining the archetypal energies of two of the major world religions. Easter is the archetypal symbol of Jesus Christ, as the Sun willingly sacrificing himself and being reborn as a symbol for all humans of eternal life. We can be resurrected now into a new life.

Rabbi Jonathan Cahn’s books about The Shemitah, the 7 year cycles of leaving the earth fallow and clearing debts, and the blood moon prophesies also invoke this type of cycle.

Lunar eclipse energies stirs up the electro-magnetic fields, our unconscious feelings and emotions at this super high tide. Memories from previous eclipses may re-appear as they happen at the same degrees every 19 years.  The last one was April 3, 1996. Where were you at then?

The eclipse re-activates the seventh Uranus-Pluto square only 18 days before this eclipse. The Total Solar eclipse at the last degree of Pisces was only 15 days ago along with the Equinox portal. We are being sandwiched, squeezed, hammered and birthed as fast as we can be and thrust into a new awareness. 

LIBRA’s symbol the scales originate from the ancient Egyptian Goddess MAAT’s golden scales of justice and karma. The archetypal myth is that after death, the human heart is weighed against Maat’s crown of an ostrich feather. If the heart is heavier than the feather, then the soul must return to earth to continue to work on its’ issues until it completes and let go of its emotional baggage and achieves the requisite, light as a feather heart as a resurrection in this life. 

This is the key and it’s a beautiful symbol. 

 Libra Balance Maat Astrology Tara Greene

Libra by  J. Bosschart

This is where we are needing to go. Lightening up, letting go, dropping our stories, mental chatter, our stuck in the groove repetitive compulsions of unconscious karmic wounds. To be clear minded, unhampered emotionally, able to be fully in the now.

Numerology of 4/4 

The eclipse occurs on the 4th of the 4th , we are working with the four main elements at this eclipse.

1. The realm of the mind, LIBRA air element. 2. The MOON, feelings, water. 3. FIRE element of spirit, the Sun in ARIES, the partner of the Moon. 4. LIBRA is ruled by VENUS and she is strong in her earthy sign of Taurus now..  There are four directions, the number four is a foundation. It symbolizes POWER.

Tarot, Kabbalah and CELTIC correspondences.

LIBRA is symbolized by the Trump card of JUSTICE which is the 11th { and/or the 8th}  key of the Tarot.  Its color is emerald green. Its sound is F#. The symbol means an ox goad. The Hebrew letter is lamed.

Aries is the symbol of THE EMPEROR, TRUMP # 4. The Emperor is doubly proclaimed loudly. Aries is a new beginning in being the responsible wise leader of your own life. Aries is the I AM principle.

The Emperor’s color is scarlet. His tone C natural. His symbol means a window. His letter is Heh.

Is the Emperor wearing any clothes?

In CELTIC tree lore tradition this time of year is ruled by the ALDER tree. She is connected to water, to Bran, the raven, bringer of magic, Odin’s bird. LIBRA is connected with two trees. The bramble, a vision bringing plant, and IVY which represents the rebirth of all souls. Ivy symbolizes imagination, she is evergreen, related to Bacchus or Dionysus. This fits for the Easter symbolism as well. 

This will be the shortest eclipse of the century, good for those with short attention spans, so we have to be quick about it. Check out where, and if you will see all or part of it where you are located.U.s. Canada and world map

MEDITATION and RITUAL herbs, colors, incense, angels

For the ceremony and meditation we want to bring in as many attributes as we can.  Use what you have.

Minerals and Stones associated with Libra

Smoky quartz, rutilated quartz, Herkimer diamonds, Moonstones, emeralds, lapis, kunzite, coral.

Stones for Aries

Red garnets, bloodstones, carnelian, ruby, amber.

I would use watermelon tourmaline as it has both the green tourmaline for Libra and the red for Aries.

Set up an alter or sacred meditation space.

I would recommend lots of smudge and incense for Cardinal AIR.

Incense with coriander, rose, sweetgrass, sandalwood, and vanilla for LIBRA. Put on quiet meditation music. You can prerecord these instructions with pauses to listen to as you do the meditation.

Use white or green and red candles. The MOON’s color is silver. Use silver candle stick holder or put dimes, quarters or silver dollars on the alter and wear silver jewelry.

Libra rules the skin, small of the back and kidneys and adrenals. Cleansing and toning herbs are angelica, thyme, burdock and bearberry.  The Moon rules the breasts, the left eye, the lymph, bodily fluids and saliva, ovaries. If you have any problems with these areas bring them into your meditation, and use Reiki to amplify the healing energy.

Begin by smudging yourself first.  Light your candles.  One for each direction. I always work EAST to SOUTH to WEST TO NORTH. Always move clockwise.

Call in the four elements and the four direction into your sacred circle.

Call in the four Archangels, Michael, Gabriel, Ariel, Raphael in the same order.

Center yourself by breathing, sit or stand as feels right to you. You can do this ritual outdoors as well. Best to do this with your eyes closed.

The key is to meditate on opening the crown chakra first. As you did on the last 7th Uranus Pluto square.

Look up at the sky and see or imagine the moon. Feel the moon’s energy. Feel the silvery white pure light and the black endarkened Moonlight pouring down into your crown chakra at the top of your head. It will be powerful and easy to access. Breathe. Keep breathing naturally and easily. Your intention is everything. You are safe and in control.

 Imagine your crown chakra opening like an observatory. Feel the energy pulsing and becoming alive at your crown. Once you feel it is open begin to command your breath and the Moon’s energy down into your pineal gland, a violet flame or eye will appear, this is your 3rd eye being activated.  Feel it opening there between your brows. Keep breathing.  Once you feel that activation occur, then breathe the eclipsed moonlight down into your 5th chakra the throat center, and see and feel its blue color activated. Feel your throat expanding.

Then breathe down the sun/moon light into your 4th chakra your heart. It has a beautiful emerald green color. You need to feel ARIES absolute self-love first. Intend to connect to your own self as the beloved within. Then next in your heart imagine your beloved and you. See and feel the two of you dropping all your stories, your masks, and fear and centering together in love and union in each other’s hearts as equals, as opposite balances and as one whole entity.

When you sense this, then extend this energy out to the world. See all the others-all the humans and yourself as one equal half of the other. Muslims and Jews, Catholics and atheists, men and women.  See the wholeness, of self and other as one, both the yin and the yang, the polarity which is necessary for all of life. Feel the respect and the peace as each discovers how necessary and loved and needed the other is.

Keep breathing, go down to your 3rd chakra just below your navel, it is bright yellow, connected with the will, the SUN, and Aries. Breathe the Moonlight into this center and activate The EMPEROR here.

Then breathe down into your 2nd chakra. This is the womb in women, men have a spirit womb. It is bright orange and connected with creativity, birth, safety, sexuality. Feel this safe space filling with the Eclipsed moon light.

Then breathe down the dark moon light into your root chakra, at your perineum, it is bright red in color, like Mars, ruler of Aries.  This chakra relates to survival, groundedness, sexuality, power, passion Once you have the seven chakras open you are a rainbow bridge.

HEALING AND CLEANSING

Command the eclipsed moon’s light to cleanse and purify any residual conscious or unconscious memories, from past lives, future lives and present life karma. Take your time, feel or sense it in a detached LIBRA manner. Ask to clear out all misunderstandings and emotions which are out of balance, ignorant, or un-awakened to their total balance. Ask to bring yourself into a place of total harmony, balance, peace, purity and love, firmly rooted in the middle way or pillar of justice.

See you heart cleared of all negative fixations, emotional ties, debts, sacrifices and delusions. Sense your heart reborn anew, lighter, clearer in its original purity and open to love.

Now visualize your heart weighed against Maat’s ostrich feather and watch until your heart comes into a perfect balance on her scales of justice. Stay with this energy.

Be in this as long as you need. Meditate and ask what you need to do now. At the end of your meditation always thank the elements and spirits and close your circle. Write down visions, feelings and questions.

Blessings, TARA

Thinking out loud. Teenage dream-not, Astrology

ok folks, I am writing every day. It is very demanding. I need to focus on my larger projects, my book which I need to get back to writing. I am thinking out loud with the Moon in GEMINI. I have my natal Mercury in Sagittarius conjunct the Galactic Center and my mind never stops.

I am also starting to write short astrology weeklies for another company- announcement about that comes out soon.  

Let yourself breathe a little. We will face an other super power TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE on April 4th,  A 4 /4 gateway of POWER, that’s what the 4 stands for in the Tarot, the four elements, which I will write about. It’s  double “whamo-s” for the 7 Uranus Pluto’s squares and a Biblical prophesy of the Blood moon, Easter weekend of Resurrection and Passover.

wham-o Astrology Tara Greene

New codes will be available to download.  I always like it when Passover and Easter co-incide like in the original story of Easter.  don’t you? Watch the 10 commandments for the umpteenth time and see Moses/Charlton Heston’s hair get higher and higher as he gets more commanding. 

The recent astrology transits are affecting me too.The last solar eclipse at 29 Pisces/0 Aries  affected my natal Chiron by a square at 1+ degree of Capricorn in my 2nd house.

I am currently under Saturn square my North Node in Pisces at 5 degrees and conjunct my 6 degrees Sagittarius Moon. I am tired. I like many others and the world will get this big transit next November exactly. It feels like  Saturn, the lead weight verse the lighter than air Pisces NEPTUNE Dream.  a lot of you born in the early 80’s are feeling this and having your first Saturn return too.

It’s NOT the teenage Dream but the opposite- the Middle Age dream but don’t dream it’s over.

Maybe life will turn into one of my childhood dreams which was like a musical. Like the Umbrella’s of Cherbourg a 60’s French film starring the beautiful Catherine Deneuve where everyone sang every line of dialogue. Like GLEE extended.  That would be very PISCEAN creative, sound healing… 

I have lots of clients these days. It takes a lot of energy to see clients to help assist them and to do phone readings.  I listen to their stories and i get intimately involved in them and yet must keep healthy boundaries. Many people are in need of mourning for parents they have lost, that has come up a lot as a theme the last few days and it reminds me of the loss of my own parents and my mother-in law’s recent passing which is affecting my  husband a lot.

Most powerful aspect Wednesday MArch 25  is SUN TRINE SATURN in the afternoon

Do stay positive, SUNNY SIDE UP UP UP , yes the world seems to be going to hell in a handbasket,  aim higher. Breathe in the sun. Walk on sunshine.

Later in the day Moon in Gemini is squared by Chiron and MERCURY in PISCES its own ruler. 

HEALER heal thyself.

Look at where you have been too busy in GEMINI fashion to be present with your own wounds, fears and vulnerability. 

I sense a lot of deep shame and self- rejection and guilt coming up to be healed. 

MOON ENTERS CANCER MArch 26 @ 3:45 pm EDT

Sexy Easter Bunny, Taurus, Grand Cardinal Cross Resurrection by Tara Greene

Easter is an ancient Pagan Fertility and sex festival originally named EOSTRE. The familiar rabbit and eggs symbols are sympathetic magical sexy symbols, you know bunnies reproduce like mad. The Christians couldn’t take away ancient festivals so they overlaid- no pun intended, Jesus’s symbolic death and rebirth myth on top of it.
Napoleon Brousseau film
from Polymer Rabbit Launch  short super 8 film, 1981 Napoleon Brousseau
All deaths preceed rebirths and births.  In a dual natured Universe you can’t have one without the other. But they are intimately intertwinded. There is no death actually anyway- only energy which can never be destroyed only changing form, velocity, dimensions.
Moon in Sagittarius begins the Easter weekend till Saturday at 6:28 pm PDT
Things will be 9th house-y, and upbeat with lots of travelling. Casual get togethers, being in nature, horseback riding, gambling, comedy clubs, metaphysical topics, justice, sports or some other learning scenario is in the stars. Also occasionally bumping into walls and of course hoof in mouth embarrassing moments.
April 19
Lots of communications issues highlighted.
Mercury Quincunx SATURN late night produces boogie man dreams.  
I always thought the symbol of Jesus on the cross all bloody with the thorns was really scary.
Moon TRINES MERCURY in Aries
Fast galloping conversations off into the sunset. You will have to lasso those runaway ideas.I’m in the SOUTH WEST so you know cowboy imagery.
VENUS in PISCES QUINCUNX MARS IN LIBRA
Boundary issues arise in relationships, sounds soggy, and indecisive. Venus in Pisces is the love of the martyr in itself.
MOON TRINES SUN @ 6:17 pm PDT
This is a nice positive happy good-humoured aspect. Bring more joy into your life. Feeling groovy.
MOON enters CAPRICORN @ 6:28 pm
Mood is Serious, duty, respect, maturity, all business.
SUN ENTERS TAURUS @ 8:56 pm  PDT
Sun enters fertile, sensual, grounded, stubborn, resourceful Taurus. Plant seeds, till the earth.
Ruled by Venus, Taurus enjoys life as if it’s the Garden of Eden, and it is.
 
EASTER SUNDAY
Get out your bonnets. I strongly advise that you to wear a helmet as the Grand Cardinal Cross is resurrected yet again,and will be again and again this upcoming week.
JUPITER in Cancer squares URANUS in ARIES @ 12:29 am PDT
Well you know this one. Be prepared for floods, fires, stomach upsets, unusual people coming to your home, and be the cosmic surfer who goes with the flow, expect the unexpected chaos.
VENUS conjuncts CHIRON in PISCES
This is so appropriate for EASTER. Christ’s symbol is PISCES, THE TWO FISHES as his birth symbolized the beginning of the Age of PISCES.  Feeling real empathy, selfless love, compassion, this is exactly the aspects that symbolizes the Christos which means anointed One, giving unconditional love, as a martyr to absolve others of their sins.
JUPITER OPPOSITE PLUTO @ 4:26 pm
Riches, fertility, grounding and feeling the soul’s purpose. DEFINING the roots of ones purpose in the world. Jupiter is Yahweh and Pluto is Death and both energies are part of  Easter’s symbolism. Both are in Feminine signs.
Capricorn Moon squares Uranus @ 5:27 pm
We will all feel this impact in our emotional bodies. Stay calm by meditating in the eye of the storm.
MOON conjuncts PLUTO @ 5:32 pm
Keyword is INTENSE.
Family and governmental power struggles, and shifts as with Russia and the Ukraine. It is difficult from suppressing deep emotions. Their may be volcanic eruptions and definitely more earth quakes. Envision your long-term goals and plans. Respect your elders and your ancestors.
Moon opposite Jupiter in Cancer @ 5:32 pm
A very tight Grand Cardinal Cross which we will feel in our living rooms, bodies, in the earth.
Very fertile, if you want to have babies, new business, water your garden, literally.
Moon squares  Mars Retrograde in Libra
Those who think they are in power are having difficulty balancing the see-saw. Slow burning anger. Do the right thing. Respect yourself. Pulled in two directions.

Moon also makes 3 sextiles today

early in day to Neptune- dreams will be earthy  full or work anxiety.
Moon sextiles Chiron and Venus at days end only in PDT/ Easter Monday EST
Capricorn Moon doesn’t like to get emotional. But under all this  Grand Cardinal Cross pressure it is imperative to move those old emotions out and Venus and Chiron in Pisces offers many shoulders to cry on, help from above, spiritual blessings, resurrection.
Resurrection is the theme of this weekend
The GRAND CARDINAL CROSS is literally the theme of Easter and the reality of the planets configuration. We are all nailed just like Christ to the cross of matter, to our old emotions, ideas, family patterns and must break free now.  CHRIST is a cosmic symbol, not a martyr as the Church made him out to be at all.
We only have to surrender our ego’s to become God-like again.  
We are all enlightened already, each living entity on this earth is GOD.
Masculine God’s always died to the Goddess.  It is part of the natural cycle.
WHAT do you need to hang on the cross of matter in order to become reborn like CHRIST?
Uranus in Aries- helps us to liberate ourselves and innovate through Fire- spirit and actions,electrifying energy.
Jupiter in Cancer- helps us to gain new inner emotional security, self love, to receive love and new roots
Mars in LIBRA Retrograde- helps us to rebalance all our relations, brings Feminine into Masculine.
PLUTO in Capricorn- helps us to recycle power, ego, control issue, our soul’s place in the world, let false ego’s die.
I attended a workshop by Drunvalo Melchizedek this past week about Living in the Heart. Drunvalo’s teachings are ancient spiritual knowledge with a higher consciousness overlay. He spoke about Ascension, resurrecting the body and how to do it.
Resurrection is  simply a part of who you are and what your body does every day.
But first you must die to your old self to be reborn.
I WISH YOU FERTILE EASTER blessings. May you have a sexy one.
The KACHINA’s are dancing in the Hopi 2nd Mesa over Easter.

DEAD CAN DANCE – Persephone

Gabriel Garcia Marquez, life and death Astrology by Tara Greene

Sorry if I haven’t been writing the last few days I have been in a workshop in Sedona all day from 8:00 am – 6:30 pm and I come home quite exhausted with “homework.” 

I was all set to write my MOON in Sagittarius and  weekend EASTER outlook but found the news that one of my favourite writers Gabriel Garcia Marquez has passed away April 17 in Mexico City at 87 years of age.

Gabriel Garcia Marquez tara greene

One Hundred Years of Solitude, his most famous novel sold more than thirty million copies and won him the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1982.  Chilean poet and Nobel Laureate writer Pablo Neruda  called the novel “the greatest revelation in the Spanish language since Don Quixote.” the 17th century masterpiece by Cervantes.

Gabo, as he was affectionately known achieved fame for pioneering the quintessentially marvelous and mundane form called Magical realism.

The eldest of eleven children, he was raised by his grandparents, who were very influential in his later stories. Gabo started out as a law student but then abandoned it to  follow his own immutable ways and worked for many years as a journalist. He was always highly critical of Columbian and foreign politics. His friendship with Cuban President Castro and as an outspoken opponent of U.S. Imperialism Gabo was banned from entering the United States for many years until President Bill Clinton lifted the ban.

Gabo had been ill with lymphatic cancer since 1999, recovered and various stories of his death and recovery, of writing new novels  came and went. Gabo died of pneumonia. The world tweeted and newspaper articles heralded his genius and his undoubtable legacy which will never be forgotten.

“Think of love as a state of grace, not the means to anything, but the alpha and the omega, an end unto itself.” from Love in the time of cholera.

I adored 100 years of Solitude and his novels inspired me to read and enjoy many other wonderful Spanish writers. So lets see just who GABO was in his life and what was occurring at the time of his death.

Gabriel Garcia Marquez astrology by Tara Greene

A QUADRUPLE PISCES born March 6 1927 at 9:00 am in Aracataca Columbia. Marquez had a very supportive Jupiter, ANCIENT RULER of Pisces conjunct his SUN in the 11th house of revolutionaries, higher consciousness, collaborators, independent egoless leaders.

Born with a sensual hard-working, stubborn, focused, Venus ruled salt of the earth Taurus Ascendant.

His Moon- symbolizing his mother is at 24 degrees ARIES is in the 12th house of spirituality, imagination, compassion, creativity. He was telepathically connected to his mother.  Moon is conjunct to Chiron the wounded healer and in the 12th house can indicate a difficult birth and he had the umbilical cord wrapped round his neck.

CHIRON at 29 degrees Aries is conjunct his Ascendant- Marquez wasn’t afraid to speak out for the wounds of the people as symbolized by the Moon. The Moon is trine to Neptune Retrograde at 25 degrees Leo in the 4th house of childhood, home, roots which perfectly describes how Gabo turned his early childhood upbringing, his Grandfather- The Colonel and his parents courtship into his greatest books. Neptune is also close to Fixed Star Raphael- the heart of the Lion- which denotes courage and fame.

As a writer his Mercury would be of prime importance. Interestingly Mercury is RETROGRADE at 27 degrees Pisces- which is always a very creative, thinking outside the box aspect. Mercury conjuncts Uranus in Pisces in the 11th house of  rebelliousness, genius, spiritual, imagination, empathy. This was where Marquez creative genius lies in that planetary combination. He channeled his writings but was also a very hard worker. Uranus and Mercury Quincunx Neptune making it difficult for Gabo to have fleshed out his unique talent although it was a passionate love affair.

VENUS in Aries at 9 degrees in the 12th house. An independent passionate artist, one who forges his own path, impulsive, energetic, but also reclusive, tending his souls’ fire.

Venus squares PLUTO Retrograde at 13 degrees Cancer in his 3rd house of communications, siblings, information gathering- he was a journalist. This is a very powerful INTENSE combo. Pluto is on FIXED STAR SIRIUS- the God Osirus, and the position of the United States Sun which Gabo opposed its Venusian money ruled Imperialism. Pluto on this Star brings much worldly success. He poured his soul into his ideas and communications.

Mars in GEMINI in the 2nd house of resources, suits a journalist and writer to a T. Mars is the General the warrior with words, and it opposes SATURN at 7 degrees of Sagittarius, close to Fixed Star Antares- war- his Grandfather was a General, in the 8th house of soul, resurrection, birth, death, power, control, other people’s resources. This is traditionally a difficult and karmic aspect. Yet here Marquez Grandfather as the Saturn figure of seniority, discipline is also square to Jupiter in Pisces and his Sun. so he benefitted from a rather strict upbringing. Saturn trines Venus again indicating the legacy of the Patriarchs in his work. His Grandfather gave him valuable  guidance and stories which helped make his a great success.

His North Node at 4 degrees of Cancer in the 3rd house is a quest for family, nurturing, protection of the family legacy and communicating that. He married one woman and had two sons. His South N0de in Capricorn in the 9th house of philosophy, teaching, International travel, foreigners, telling the truth, mysticism indicates that Marquez was someone who held power in a past life. Capricorn is also the house of worldly fame, the father or Patrinlineal lineage. He already had a strong connection, a strong work ethic he was an achiever, who had to embrace family and he bridged both those nodes superbly in his writing.

AT HIS DEATH April 17

Marquez had the Grand Cardinal Cross of Pluto {death} opposing his Natal Pluto at 13 degrees Cancer in his 3rd house, which is Gemini like and rules the lungs. This would literally indicate water {Cancer} on the lungs or pneumonia which was the cause of death. Also Uranus squaring his Pluto, Mars squaring it and Jupiter conjunct it.

The BLOOD RED Total Lunar eclipse on April 15 was at 25 degrees of Libra, falling in his 6th house of health and exactly opposite to his Natal Moon in the 12th house.  Indicating a powerful passing away into spirit.

The Sun was conjunct his  Aries Moon in the 12th house which indicates a peaceful New Moon and spiritual awakening into death.

Transiting Venus in Pisces was conjunct his Natal Jupiter and the Sun in the 11th house and Trine to Jupiter and conjunct his Natal Pluto. If there was a good day to die this would be the aspect to die under. Talk about dying for love, this is exactly what this symbol depicts. Very beautiful, auspicious, a great death for someone who so inspired and touched the world’s soul.

Which is also a symbol of beauty and spirituality. CHIRON the wounded healer was exactly conjunct to his SUN at 15 degrees Pisces, and he achieved peace from being wounded and passed on into the Sol/soul to the next worlds.

The Transiting SOUTH Node at 28 degrees Aries in the 12th house of endings, had just made a conjunction to his Natal Chiron, again indicating a healing journey, a completion, a release.

Thank You GAbo for your beautiful inspiring tales of love, unrequited, loneliness, surreal reality and empathy.
