Inspirational Daily Card water trines

July 14, I am trying to give you a day before preview now. You like that?

July 14: That Mars Uranus inconjunct which happened late on the 13th in PDT occurs EDT at 1:13 am. You may find yourself tossin’ and turning all night. My husband and daughter did that last night. Did you?

The intense SCORPIO Moon makes two sextiles to PLUTO in CAPRICORN and JUPITER in VIRgO in the wee hours PDT and EDT. This can be a cornucopia of great dream wealth. Programme you dreams before sleep this night. 

SCORPIO Moon trines the CANCER SUN

This  a nice harmonious emotional birth/death sort of energy. Maybe very high and low alternatively. Can be very fertile as well in all senses. Create a dark dish-black? deep purple? to seduce and delight a Cancer with; squid ink pasta?  The way to their hearts is through their stomach’s.

Scorpio Moon inconjuncts URANUS in ARIES  and ERIS

This is more of that can’t integrate the brave new world energy yet stuff. The resistance to change, because of immigrants, “others”, LGBT or expanding beyond any old tribal ideology is strong. Resistance is futile. Life is always about change and adaptation.

MOON conjuncts MARS in SCORPIO this double emphasizes that Inconjunct energy.

Scorpio Moon trines Chiron in Pisces

In the evening, healing time comes by being open to our wounds and our failings. Vulnerability is the greatest strength. 

TAROT CARD OF THE DAY 

Eight of wands, Tarot Cards, Tara Greene

Eight of Wands/ Eight of Fire Vision Quest Tarot

The 8’s are always karmic by virtue of the number 8 itself.  There is a sense of destiny, a turning point. 

The eight of the element of Fire in the Vision Quest Tarot points to sparks of insight from many directions. 8 is the number of all the directions in indigenous Pagan ancient wisdom worldwide as in China, 8 is the symbol of Good Fortune and Success, 8x 8 = 64 symbols of the I Ching, and in Feng Shui.  There are 8 directions; 4 elements /Cardinal directions and four non-cardinal directions in the Medicine wheel or wheel of the year, or time. Eight is the symbol of Infinity, meaning  that all time is now. 

Remember that whatever is going down, breathing fully into the NOW, the only moment there is, is called NIRVANA, The point of bliss and choice. It is total freedom. 

Remember there is more than one point of view and that there are many vantage points to the whole picture. Walk a mile in the shoes of all the other’s on the circle for a great learning curve.

Happpy Fire Monkey Chinese New Year

The 4,713th Chinese New Year  begins at the New MOON in Aquarius Feb 8.

Gong Xi Fa Cai

Observed by 1, 377, 583, 156 people in China it is a YANG Red Fire Monkey Year. 

Chinese New Year Monkey

Monkey is a smart, naughty, wily and vigilant animal.  According to Chinese Five Elements Horoscopes, Monkey contains Metal and Water. Metal is connected to gold. Water is connected to wisdom and danger.  If you want to have good return for your money investment, then you need to outsmart the Monkey. Metal is also connected to the Wind. That implies the status of events will be changing very quickly. Think twice before you leap when making changes for your finance, career, business relationship and people relationship.

Former MONKEY YEARS: Must look at actual date when each Chinese Lunar New Year.  

2004, 1992, 1980, 1968, 1956, 1944, 1932, 1920,1908  1896 and the UNITES STATES was born in a Fire Monkey Year. So it is NOT  a great year for the U.S. or any monkeys.  

We associate Monkeys with clever, close family oriented groups. MONKEY SEE MONKEY DO, 

MONKEY BUSINESS in the U.S.  is a slang term meaning unaccountable, wasting time, illegal, questionable. Monkynig around carries the same connotations.Keep that in mind of what we want to be on the lookout for. Especially combined with Western planets like Saturn in Sagittarius keeping things honest. 

FENG SHUI tips for 2016
The last Yang Fire Monkey years were in 2004, 1992, 1980, 1968, 1956, 1944, 1932, 1920,1908  1896  and each of the years were disastrous financially and politically and this year very special cures and enhancers are need more than ever.
 
The last two Monkey years were in 1992 and 2004 which sadly saw Asia devastated by a tsunami killing 200,000 and a large earthquake taking lives in Turkey so the likelihood of another disaster in 2016 is highly likely especially with America and Russia, ISIS in Syria and Iraq in conflict already although the good news is from a Feng Shui aspect 2016 should see a resolution more long term which is what the world needs.
In 2016 we have the #2 Black Star (Ju Men) visit the centre earth palace and it is a very inauspicious star and can cause disasters relating to political stability throughout the world and predicted stock market crashes/corrections amongst many other problems.  

 

Astrology Elements in 2016:
Lucky Colors: Light blue, Vermillion, White, gold 
Lucky Numbers: 4 and 6
Lucky Direction: North, North West, West
Avoid Direction: Southwest
Lucky Flowers: Chrysanthemums

  • Unlucky Numbers: 2, 5, 9
  • Unlucky Colors: red, black, grey, dark coffee
  • Unlucky Direction: east
FAMOUS MONKEYS:
Leonardo da Vinci, Charles Dickens, Yao Ming, Celine Dion, Tom Hanks, Will Smith, Halle Berry, Christina Aguilera, Diana Ross, Elizabeth Taylor, Alice Walker, Michael Douglas, Owen Wilson, Daniel Craig, Mick Jagger, Julius Caesar, Bette Davis, Annie Oakley, Eleanor Roosevelt, Betsy Ross, Cuba Gooding Jr., Gisele Bundchen, Kim Catrall, Cole Sprouse, Demi Lovato, Dylan Sprouse, Miley Cyrus, Nick Jonas, Selena Gomez, Empress Wu Zetian of China’s Tang Dynasty (618 – 907)
FENG SHUI TIPS
In the Southwest and South, try to place some real quartz crystal from the 4th February 2016 beginning of Solar New Year, or objects that are made from an earth material like ceramic and make sure they are square in shape as this represents earth, this will help enhance wealth and luck in your home or office in 2016. 
In the year of the Monkey, the bad energy called “Five Yellow” – symbolizing obstacles and misfortune, arrives at the NE. It is recommended that one hangs a metal wind chime in the NE of the house to dissolve this bad energy. The worst months will be in February, May, November, 2016
In Chinese Metaphysics, yang fire represents the sun and energy – heart and blood circulation. Yang fire also refers to the shoulder. Hence a fire year is easy to bring sickness of heart, blood, inflammation problem and shoulder pain. Metal in the human body is related to lung and breathing organ. With fire attacking metal, there is chance of flu and other breathing organ or skin problems.
The Monkey is strong metal element, in Chinese metaphysics it is a “Travelling Horse” and it clashes against the Tiger. Hence in a Monkey year there are more people travelling, in particular for people born in year and day of Tiger, Horse, Dog, and also people born in year or day of Pig, Rabbit, and Goat.

Inspirational Card of the Day, the balancing point,Infinity, the 8 ball

May 13  I wanted to look at my trusty THOTH Tarot deck

Justice The TArot Tara Greene

Card # 8 ADJUSTMENT/JUSTICE/KARMA,  LIBRA

INTERESTING…

Traditionally the TAROT TRUMP #8 is called STRENGTH and under the influence of  LEO in most Tarot decks. It shows a woman holding open a lion’s jaws, having the strength to conquer fear and our animal instincts. 

The THOTH deck  has # 8 as JUSTICE, or ADJUSTMENT and is assigned to LIBRA and has STRENGTH as # 11 which is Leo ruled.

 The two card are  interchangable and different Tarot decks often show 8 as Strength or Justice and 11 as Justice or Strength. The Thoth deck changed the progression for metaphysical reasons.

Number 8 is wealth in China, all 8 directions on the karmic wheel and in Feng Shui.

This  card shows the scales of JUSTICE or KARMA. Justice is Blind because she need to be perfectly neutral, unattached. LIBRA is an air sign.  Libra is all about committed relationships.

Number 8 turned on its side is INFINITY- ETERNITY -NOW

In the ETERNAL NOW- where hangs your karma? 

As my famous old teacher STUART WILDE- may he forever be wilde- said “Infinity has no future.”

We are hanging in the karmic balance.  EQUANIMITY, poise, non attachment are the best ways to proceed. 

MEANING and Questions

Are you feeling you are Behind the 8 ball?

Is your life, your relationships and right livelihood in balance?

How off-balance are you? To what degree? What needs to be adjusted? Where?

Are you too judgemental of yourself and others? 

Seek balance, the middle path.. All sides are equal.

Aim to become like a box of delicious chocolates from Switzerland. Neutral and yummy.

1/2/13 Virgo Moon Trine Pluto + Sun,Astrology wealth, health,career Blessings ritual Tara Greene

Jan 2 – just wanted to see if you were paying attention.I had said in a previous post that Wednesday was a quiet day ,sounding like nothing was happening it is mainly a fairly light day. Virgo Moon squares Jupiter in Gemini in night. 

2 nice beneficial TRINES occur from Virgo Moon to Pluto and to Capricorn Sun. Earth trines give blessings on the material plane. Two, TWo, two TRINES from the Virgo Moon to Pluto, God of Riches and wealth and to the Sun- the symbol of gold itself the Source of all Light. Atomic symbol is AUM or OHM.  It’s a Great day to do a blessing ritual for health career and wealth’gold OM

Wealth ritual

So set up an earth circle/alter for attracting wealth, health of course for Virgo and career success. These are  Capricorn Trines.  Use earthy incense, musk, bring a pot of earth into your circle. Call in the 4 directions- starting in East and always move clockwise.-see previous good luck rituals- HOW TO’s

Meditate on what you’d like to achieve, what your body needs to thrive. Is it better diet, exercise, sleep? Is your present job/workplace supporting your highest energy?

Visualize how much money you’d like to earn this year. See yourself as a tree growing branches, how you’d like to expand your business. See the roots growing from your spine deep into the soil. You are bringing up nutrients from the rich soil you are firmly rooted in. Feel the crystals, gold, diamonds in the earth that nourish your entire body, which is the Tree of Life. Stay with this meditation and let it take you where it wants to go. Feel how grounded and centered and rooted and supported you are. At the end take 3 pennies and     

plant  them in the earth as you state your wishes for 2013 career, health, wealth, strength, expansion.

at the end of the meditation ritual, place your earth pot and the 3 pennies in a sunny window and visualize watering it and tending to it every day. If you dont have a sunny window place it in the North- West which is always abundance in Feng- Shui, compass North west.

Write down specific steps, budgets, dates- this is Virgo Moon we’re dealing with, details discipline and organization is necessary.

Blessings

TARA

do the ritual every day will help grow it and make it real.
