Mars Retrograde return to Capricorn

Mars Retro in Capricorn/Aquarius August 12- September 10/11

Hail the Conquering or more likely Vanquished Hero. Mars is weak from retrograding since June 26. It’s like PMSing for all things macho.

 Mars the warrior planet/God, undisputed macho ruler, Re-enters Capricorn again ass-backward kind of like Mooning the sign or a breech re-birth.

August 12  Retrograde.

Mars was last at this 29th and most critical degree of Capricorn on May 15 on another New Moon that one in Taurus. The same day that URANUS entered TAURUS for the first time in 84 years.

Mars will Finally turn Direct on August 27th   @ 28 degrees CAPRICORN     

Sorry that’s so little that’s Mars Retrograde not letting me cut and paste to a normal size. Then Mars will be speeding along again letting out all his anger directly not repressing it until September 10 /11 when MARS re-enters detached AQUARIUS. 

 Martial war aggression competition and all testosterone activities are fully in the clear as Mars bypasses its Retrograde degree of 9 Aquarius on October 9th.

 Mars Has been in square to Revolutionary Tech-heavy URANUS since this Retrograde began. They had their first exact square on August 1st on Lammas a Pagan Holiday. This is why this period since JUNE 26 has felt so difficult frustrating and long.

 MARS will square URANUS exact again on September 18 @ 1 plus Degree AQUARIUS/ TAURUS with Uranus Retrograde.

 While Mars is in Capricorn again he is a horny Olde Devil the pagan God PAN, the masculine Fertilizing energy of nature, which the Catholic church turned into the DEVIL. Ruled by Saturn/Satan who is the Devil and rules the sign of Capricorn and AQUARIUS where Mars is headed back to. Capricorn/The Devil is  You know selling your soul to the Devil. A phrase no one hardly even remembers anymore because they all think it’s so hip to sell your soul to the devil for worldly Possessions. Mars and Saturn in Capricorn heats up Hell. Som Capricorn’s may have hell to pay.

Better the Devil you know than the one you don’t. That’s Mars Retrograde back in Capricorn Again.

Mars= Sex

While Mars is in Capricorn sex is rough animalistic earthy hard, rough, if you like that kind of thing. Mars will be sexing up those hallowed halls of Corporate Profit and beurocrats   to shake things up a bit.  It may be a power-hungry, competitive, angry, driven, defensive, passionate six-week lesson in hard work, knuckling down, taking care of business and defending your piece of the mountaintop whatever your business is.

Capricorn is conservative, buttoned-down, straight-laced, follows the rules. Capricorn Honors the fathers, the elder statesman senators and senior’s history and solid business values. Capricorn does not like to get emotional, even though it is a feminine sign. Mars here may feel quite stifled.

 The 10th sign of career success and worldly acclaim symbolizes the pinnacle of one’s public life. Saturn is the builder and architect. The Goat-Fish sign is ruled by stiff upper lip SATURN, the cosmic tax man, grim reaper- death. Capricorn is the structure of all that exists, 3-D reality itself, matter. Capricorn rules the Winter Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere. It is the time of extreme cold, the North, it is dead of winter- ok yes, it is all northerly focused. 

 Mars will activate the markets in Capricorn and Mars pumps up Taurus and Virgo -earth signs too by Trine.

 Mars in the Tarot is the symbol of The TOWER  and Capricorn is THE DEVIL in the Tarot. Some big corporate structure is also likely to get blown up. Or expect earthquakes and volcanic activity to increase again.

Mars rules the sign of ARIES And SCORPIO

 The Mars in Capricorn influences slows down the always audacious Aries courageous, impulsiveness for all ARIES peeps. Also helps Uranus in Aries to be more pragmatic in its revolutionary tactics. 

 Do check out which degrees of Capricorn Mars will be tromping through in your natal chart to find out where to focus your long-term goals on. 

 Ground your passion, love your work, make it real, practical, birth that baby.

Yes-time to plan, get serious, tie the knot, get in shape to mountain climb. Capricorn rules the knees so do be watchful of them- too much sprinting isn’t good for sensitive goat knobs.

 ARIES you get to have some patience for about a month. Look at where Aries is in your natal chart to see where you can actualize things that you usually can’t finish.

 You may also find yourself being angry at your father, bosses or authority in general. This can indicate bigger protests in the world against you know who and what and corporations. Which we are seeing confrontations from

Virgo time. Love hurts Venus Trine Chiron

In the aftermath of the Total eclipse. It’s VIRGO TIME and the Moon is in Virgo too so stay grounded. 

The all detail oriented Virgo moon is busy working of course.

VIRGO MOON square to Stern Saturn in the wee hours.

You may have very heavy serious dreams. Older people authority figures elder wise guides your father or other old issues from when you traveled or were in school may appear. Take notes.  

MOON opposes Venus in CANCER

A good day to organize or clean or cook. Do call your mom or a sister friend or other female you know and check on their health.

Virgo Moon opposes CHIRON in PISCES

The eclipse after effects are very emotional. You will feel wounded vulnerable ultra sensitive and out of joint emotionally. Old emotional issues will float to the surface like suitcases that you flung off a bridge what seems like thousands of years ago. Conflicts on the job; feeling insecure about how good you are at your work and judging yourself too harshly are to be expected.

MOON ENTERS LIBRA in the evening

Time to attempt to achieve balance peace and get social. Expect to be the Go-between the ambassador. Libra moons make it difficult to decide what we want. 

VENUS in CANCER trines CHIRON in PISCES @ 27+ degrees

Love hurts love scars love wounds. Isn’t that how the song goes? Time to sing sad love songs sing the blues cry yourself a river. This aspect doesn’t only bring out woundings it brings out insecurities feeling vulnerable helpless like a martyr. Old shadow material is recycling and circulating. Allow these deep emotional wounds to come up to the surface. Cry as much as you feel you need to. Make something creative with your pain. Transmute it.

Make something creative with your pain. Transmute it. Like Artist Frida Kahlo did.

All archetypal journeys must begin with a wounding. That is why we are here in the physical world experiencing our emotions they are our gold. 

This aspect is Aug 24 in EDT and GMT

Healing the original wound.

It’s the end of June, the aspects are rather light today. Moon enters LIBRA in the wee hours to bring us some detached balance. The Moon squares the SUN, we are half way to the next full Moon July 8/9th in Capricorn.

Chiron turns RETROGRADE  July 1st, Canada’s 150th birthday and its third Chiron Return. Chiron turns Retro at 28+ degrees PISCES, take us all back into opening up and revisiting the original wounds we need to heal for the sake of all of

It’s Canada’s 150th birthday and its third Chiron Return. Chiron turns Retro at 28+ degrees PISCES, take us all back into opening up and revisiting the original wounds we need to heal for the sake of all of humanity now. I was reading something about this earlier. To heal the original wound in humanity is to heal the split of the Patriarchy, its’ deluded fear of women’s power and its own sense of inherent weakness and separation from Source because they do not participate directly in birthing. The Patriarchy has dominated women and nature and controlled women and men for over 5,000 years now through brainwashing, indoctrination using religion as its #1 weapon.  The original wound is always fear and not love no matter who it is directed at.

Frida Kahlo wounded

The Wounded Deer 1946 Frida Kahlo

If men could only face their own sense of vulnerability and heal that the world would be a better more compassionate and more loving place. 

Chiron will be Retrograde until December 5 moving only 4 degrees back, giving us all a nice long slow time to open those old soul wounds gently and air them out, placing healing salves and love balms and calling on our angels, spirit guides and ancestors to help us heal. We must be strong enough to be vulnerable with them and fully feel and cry out the shame, fear, poison envy poison that has lain suppressed for so many millennia now. 

The original wound is the apparent separation of soul and matter. We must unite with the Great mother from when we were all borne.

Chiron is squaring the GALACTIC Center at 27 degrees SAGITTARIUS this whole time. 

wounded healer, astrology, Tara Greene

SATURN will be conjunct the Galactic Center once more in November as it squares Chiron. This aspects allows us to gain much higher cosmic insights into our Higher Self and the reason we chose to be embodied on this planet now.  Saturn will then leave Sagittarius on DECEMBER 19 entering CAPRICORN the sign Saturn rules for the next 2.5 years. Big changes are afoot. Use this time wisely. Chiron remains in PISCES until the end of 2018 making a short, testing of the waters of a new cycle in ARIES from April til the end of September. 

Love is a Parallax by Sylvia Plath a paragraph

"Arrows that lacerate the sky, while knowing
the secret of their ecstasy's in going;
 some day, moving, one will drop,
and, dropping, die, to trace a wound that heals
only to reopen as flesh congeals:
 cycling phoenix never stops."

Friday, Goddess Frigg, origin of the F word

Friday, they used to say TGIF which means thank Goddess it’s Friday. Vendredi in French. This day honors and is sacred to the goddess and the planet VENUS, Goddess of LOVE, beauty, relaionships and all things Feminine. 
Venus is known by many names but in English she is associated with the Nordic/Germanic Freya or Frigg in Nordic mythology/spirituality. Frigg’s day = Friday.  Her name, Proto-Germanic “Frija” which means FREE.
Old English “Friga”. Old Norse “Frigg”. Proto-Indo-European (PIE) “Priy-a” or Frida as in Frida Kahlo, name destiny there. 
Freya, Frigg, Venus, Friday, The F word, Tara Greene
“Freyja and the Necklace” by James Doyle Penrose (1890)
Eating fish on Friday’s, which Catholics borrowed from ancient, ancient customs is to venerate Venus, born from the sea, and women’s vagina’s smell like the sea. Venus is exalted in PISCES. Catholics are eating the Goddess by eating fish, a very sexual metaphor. Christ is associated with the AGE OF PISCES which is a feminine water sign. 
Her name, Proto-Germanic “Frija” which means FREE.
— Old English Friga”
— Old Norse “Frigg”
— Proto-Indo-European (PIE) “Priy-a” or Frida, Frida etc. 
Freya or Frigg Freya is famous for many things. Firstly is her fondness of love, sexuality, fertility, beauty, and fine material possessions. “Frigg,” meanwhile, comes from an ancient root that means “beloved.” Frigg’s name links her to love and desire, same as Venus, precisely the areas of life over which Freya presides over or more precisely “within which Freya manifests herself”.  
The origin of the word FUCK
I love etymology. The Goddess Frigg, is a very sexual Goddess, like Venus. In one of the poems from The Edda’s for example, Loki accuses Freya (probably accurately) of having slept with all of the gods and elves, including her brother and even a slave in one report. 
The word Friggin’ is an old English word for sexual intercourse, obviously comes from the Goddess. This word friggin developed into Fuck.  “As euphemism for “to fuck” it dates from 1680s, earlier as “to masturbate”(1670s).” from a Thesaurus. 
VOLVA or SHAMANESS
Freya is the archetype of the völva, a shamaness or shamanka, a professional practitioner of seidr, the most organized form of Norse magic. It was she who first brought these magical arts to the gods and to humans too. She uses falcon feathers to transform herself into this fierce sharp-eyed bird of prey.  She also possesses a special necklace and used a sacred hallucinogenic wine or liquor which she used to prophesy with.  Frigg knows the destiny of all beings, implying that she also has the power to alter them if she so chooses. Frigg’s weaving activities are likely an allusion to this role as well as Goddesses were considered to be the weavers of fate.
The word volva also echoes vulva, another echo of the sexuality of the Goddess she probably was a tantric priestess. 
She was married to Odin. And the tales tell that when he is away she can be found weeping tears of red gold over his absence. Freya presides over the afterlife she chooses half of the warriors slain in battle to dwell there.
She could control and manipulate desire, wealth, and health. Frigg is a being whose knowledge, beauty and power are unequaled. 
PAST LIVES
In one of many hypnosis sessions I had, years ago in Sedona in 1988. I had a very clear past life memory of being a Norse man who was in a battle on one of those beautiful Viking ships with the striped sails. I was killed in battle by a sword. I had always been drawn to those Viking ships and had drawn a pictire of one when I was in  Grade 3, I remember that so clearly.
One of the ways to connect with past lives is to think about the cultures, symbols or places on the earth that you are attracted to. These are usually past life memories. I have had many past life memories being male and female in man cultures in the world. Egypt, Druid, English, French, Atlantic, Crete, Arabic, Chinese, Jewish, Native American, Tibetan, African, and probably more.  Do you remember your past lives?

Jupiter opposite Chiron Astrology Tara Greene

Self-Portrait, the loving embrace of the universe, the Earth , I, Diego and Lord Xólotl by FRIDA KAHLO 1949

SAGITTARIUS MOON is very optimistic inspired, and happy travelling; squares VENUS in VIRGO

International Sagittarius connections may prove valuable and lead to future work. Stay inspired. You need take a break from working so hard and do some travelling. This means you especially  VIRGO. Balance play with work.  Eating exotic food may cause tummy upsets. 

SAGE moon conjuncts SATURN in SAGITTARIUS

This is where the Sagittarius Moon really takes on the SAGE aspect. There may be some heavy karmic fallout with Dad or authority issues under this aspect. Be realistic but optimistic. Launch new projects in teaching, publishing, education. Plan those longed for learning, travel, fun, vaca’s now. There could be Meetings with exotic older strangers. Go see your DAD. For Sagittarius take care of your practical goals before flying off to the next adventure. {I am talking to myself here, of course. }

Sag. Moon squares NEPTUNE in PISCES

There is definitely LOVE and romance in the air between Sagittarius and PISCES. The real and the dream need to be examined. Be careful because you are wearing those realistic but still rose coloured glasses.; Don’t fall for the too good to be true deal. Idealism and optimistic can be good. Gotta love those MUTABLE SIGNS. Creative aspect for publishers. 

JUPITER in Virgo opposes CHIRON in PISCES- The FISHER KING

and perfectionists rehab

This is the major planetary aspect of the day. JUPITER in VIRGO opposite Chiron in Piscremindsdes me of a much-loved story about the HOLY GRAIL, and the Fisher King. Did you see the modern version of the story in the movie of the same name with Robin Williams and Jeff Bridges? It’s one of my favorites. The famous question in the story is when Percival asks the Wounded King. “What ails thee?” 

Jupiter in Virgo indicates self-criticism and perfectionism. Jupiter opposite Chiron asks us to be practical and compassionate. Jupiter in Virgo is very work focused, accountable, self-critical, nit-picky . This may go to the extreme and prove to lead to many wounds, psychosomatic illness, anxiety, and depression. Many young people, and students I meet as clients complain about the competition, the anxiety and stress they feel constantly. This is a day to honour your needs to feel your feelings fully and admit that you need healing. Is there a workaholics/perfectionists rehab? There should be. But corporate structure forces people into working too much. Crying is recommended. Letting go of old unnecessary guilt is facilitated now. Also maybe a good idea to get a health check up. 

Saggy Moon squares MERCURY in VIRGO in PDT

Define what you want to say, structure your mission, make a budget and JUST DO IT. Take care of business before gallivanting off. Open up your usual viewpoints to let some fresh air in. This is a fine fiery earthy balance.  You need some humor in your daily grind. 

Aug. 13 SATURN turns DIRECT! get those reviewed plans on the move.

VENUS in VIRGO Squares SATURN in SAGITTARIUS

A good day to get married. Make a commitment to your work or health.

and Jupiter inconjuncts URANUS in ARIES

Expect chaos in your travels,  and unexpected changing points of view. Apply quirky weird philosophies and a sense of humour will get you through. Some nice fire trines. It will be busy. more on that sooner.

2016 Crystal Ball Tarot predictions by Tara Greene

ok the New 2016 Video is up. I use my Crystal Ball, my intuition, Tarot Cards and Astrology to bring you clear month by month guidance. 

2016 is the year of the Hermit #9 or SAGE. Sage seems more appropriate a term. Especially with Saturn the planet of reality in the sign of Sagittarius which is also about seeking sagely wisdom. Wisdom prudence and good judgement is how the dictionary defines sage.  A profound philosopher.  That perfectly describes Saturn in Sagittarius.

You can watch it on my website http://taratarot.ca/

A sage is usually an older, wiser, nature loving person. They care not what other people think. They are humble wise and reserved. They are solitary and listen within or to the plants, the moon, the stars.  They can be female or male. The standard definition is of course masculine, like Gandalf, or Yoda, in popular myths.  If female they will be the wise woman herbalist, a midwife or an older Crone woman, Gloria Steinem or Frieda Kahlo, or Susun Weed, artists Judy Chicago or Clarissa Pinkola Estes.  

Sometimes a guru teacher or mentor steps into your life to teach you. But usually the teaching comes from within and one connection to the soul.. Be careful of falling for any guru this year with Neptune in Pisces in square Saturn. Make sure they are ethical, experienced and don’t make false promises.

SAGE

the plant, Salvia Officionalis when dried is used in Indigenous rituals to smudge or cleanse the air, body, mind spirit. The herb is good to eat, and has health giving properties. It’s easy to grow, there is also a hallucinogenic variety, called Salvia Divinorum, the name says it. You must be careful when using it for that purpose. I was initiated as a Green Witch by Susun Weed in 1987.

Bloody Monday, Sun opposite Pluto, Frida Kahlo

Monday bloody Monday. The Moon is in soft pastels, watery lagoons of creative, romantic, dream time  as the Pisces Moon trines Sun in Cancer, and tickles Pluto in a sweet sextile

I’m flowing along with the tide wherever my imagination takes me. I never knwo what I am going to write most days. I can’t stop  writing. Neptune is at the mid-point of my Sagittarius Sun and Moon. Do I write too much?    then…

WHAM BAM THANK YOU MA’AM the SUN and PLUTO face off in the morning  

The big corporate Plutocrats  are facing off with the Cancerian country,home, feeling-led Greeks.

reigniting the Cardinal Cross energy from 2014- 2015 at 14+ degrees Cancer this of course is a near hit to the U.S. Sun. You may feel a lurch in your stomach. 

After holidays may be a rude beginning in the world markets today what with Greece’s NO vote. 

Neptune, the oceanic ruler of Pisces is also in an easy sextile to Pluto and in a Grand Trine to the Cancerian and U.S, SUN.

Neptune rules DEBT, illusion, things that aren’t real, fantasy, escapism, spirituality, the SOURCE. 

Moon later conjuncts Chiron in Pisces because yes it will hurt. 

Moon ends the day in an awkward quincunx to Jupiter in Leo in PDT and next morning in EDT. 

there will be much ballyhoo and belly aching and big egos and heads rolling.

What to do: Ignore the fracas and ruckus and tune into your own Higher self, a good day to meditate and dream. Every Pisces Moon is a chance to step away from reality and the 3-D demands of work, and living in the material world, especially as the world will be fussing about the material things or lack of them. You stay centered and calm with the world raging around you. Be the symbol of the Chariot in the Tarot. Be creative as well, dance, paint, sing, chant Holy mantras. 

Happy Birthday to His Holiness the Dalai Lama turning 80 today born in Tibet, may he live long.  China overtook Tibet in the 1950’s and continues to smother and desecrate this sacred land and culture. 

Happy Birthday to one of my art heroine’s Frida Kahlo born July 6 1907 

Frida Kahlo birthday Tara Greene

The Love Embrace of the Universe 1949

Frida Kahlo the extraordinary artist had an extraordinary astrology chart too. 

Frida kahlo astrology Tara Greene

with her Sun conjunct Fixed Star Sirius and Neptune {and the U.S. Sun} at 13 degrees Cancer,  the planet of artists, spirituality, and addictions close by, it was natural that she would rise to fame.  Frida had her Moon at 29 degrees Taurus conjunct to ALGOL the Star considered to have the worst reputation and to bring evil. This is also conjunct to the Pleiades, the famed 7 weeping Sisters. With a  Pluto Venus conjunction in Gemini, Frida was a creature of opposites, dual-natured, bi-sexual,oozing charm, attracting wealth, beauty, strength, and she was an amazing communicator. Jupiter and the North Node conjunct in Cancer -she was  a huge soul, the Madre of the earth, who knew what her mission was. With an unusual Retrograde Mars and Uranus conjunct in Capricorn in the 5th house, Frida had enormous discipline, a hard work ethic, she was a fiercely independent woman who came to finish off her karma with men in her life and to change the traditional path for women. The 5th house is traditional the house of children, love affairs, and creative self-expression. She did that in spades, her bus accident- Mars/Uranus left her in pain her entire life with over 30 spinal operations and the inability to have children. Her artworks were her children and she treated her twice married husband Diego Rivera as her baby as shown in the painting. With Mercury in Leo  Frida was a charismatic, beautiful and powerful woman  and was a natural leader, strong-willed, big-hearted, dramatic, ruling like a Queen from her imagination {in the 12th house}. Saturn in Pisces made her a martyr, very creative, a loner, with great spiritual and imaginative depth.  Frida was a Goddess. Her career has eclipsed that of her husband. She is an inspiration to all who see her works. I swear I wrote an article where I deciphered Frida and Diego’s charts and I can’t find it anywhere, Weird.

Reelin’ In the Years Steely Dan 

 

International Women’s Day, I’m a proud Feminist

This was how I became a conscious Feminist. It was in a Grade 11 Art History Class when I first saw this statue of the Cretan Snake Goddess that I felt I was literally struck by lightning and awoke! I saw her again. I remembered who I was and the Great Goddess and how I had worshipped Her and how all women were Goddesses. This was my trail to becoming a Feminist. I was hurt and angry to  see how women were now denigrated, feared and stamped on by men. I saw women cowering in fear, powerless as they were portrayed as second class, and meant to feel dumb, stupid and unimportant.

Snake Goddess women's liberation Tara Greene

Cretan Snake Goddess

 

 I was a tomboy as a kid. I was difficult, I refused to behave and co-operate about almost everything that my poor mother, may she rest in peace, tried to get me to fall into line with about being Feminine. I was wild, unruly. I fought, I was outrageous. My nickname was “witch” at public school.

I always knew I had been a High Priestess and honored for being a woman. I became a feminist at a very young age, before I knew the word or its meaning. I just knew at 11, when I experienced my first  that  my wonderful life as I had known it,of being totally free and equal to the boys was over and I was immediately a second class citizen. That made me so angry.

The Birth Control Pill brought women’s liberation into the culture more than anything else. Women were burning their bras. I heard of and read writers-Virgin Wolf, Sylvia Plath, Betty Friedan, Gloria Steinem and then in my 20’s I discovered women artists- Georgia O’Keefe, photographer Dianne Arbus, Frida Kahlo and Judy Chicago who totally inspired me.

At O.C.A. there was a Women’s Feminism Course which I attended and I was part of the first Women’s Art group and show at OCA{D}  in 1972. Many of my art works were smashed and disappeared as they were considered dangerous, too erotic and insulting to some people. 

My heart still breaks every time I hear of women being tortured through genital mutilation in the Muslim religion. There are millions of women living without a clitoris. Or Chinese female babies being tossed into the garbage. Indian women aborting female fetus because girls are useless. Women sold as sex-slaves. Breastfeeding being still considered taboo or offensive. The wholesale brainwashing and programming of women to now accept and to desire being sexual abused, through violence labeled as erotic, freeing, “liberated” and being connected to love as in 50 shades of Grey. “Please torture, abase and violate me more, I love it when you hurt me.”-this keeps women even more enslaved than ever. The list goes on and on.

The Dalai Lama said “The world will be saved by the western woman.” Wow.

The changing of our present denigrated male female relationships into balance will take ALCHEMY. 

We must empathize and know that each of us has both with us. We must  become the “other.”

What do you think about Feminism?

A little Astrology for IWD

Moon is in Libra on International Women’s day – really time to balance out sexual  relationships

Moon quincunx’s Chiron-

time to wake up and feel how shocking it is that women are still 2nd class citizens, disempowered in so many ways.

The moon quincunx the SUN-

the Feminine and the Masculine Sun really don’t see eye to eye

Moon opposes Venus   –bringing in powerful Female Strength energy

Moon trines Mercury in Aquarius

which is where we do create a world of equality between men and women.

I will be doing ceremony March 8 from 4:00 pm- 5:00 pm at the Sacred Arts Centre for the benefit of the women of the world and the men too. Please tune in by meditating on the image of this snake Goddess. She symbolizes both women’s power, transformation and the snakes in her upraised arms symbolize transformational kundalini magical powers for the masculine and feminine.

Ask what you can do to help other women and yourself to become fully liberated and mepowered..
