Breastfeeding from the Divine Mother


Musing on Mars conjunct the SUN in Cancer opposed to PLUTO and MOON in Capricorn. The Moon rules CANCER and we have a reversal of energies here. The Moon in Capricorn is in detriment, opposite the Sign, it rules.

SATURN is the planetary ruler of this CAPRICORN Full MOON, Saturn, the Father, who once was the Great Mother, is in SAGITTARIUS @ 22+ degrees inconjunct to MARS exactly at 22 degrees CANCER as well as the SUN at 17 degrees CANCER. Inconjuncts are an impasse between elements. Don’t expect easy solutions under these aspects especially when they apply to the World, which Capricorn always does.

Breastfeeding Mother painting, Tara Greene, Astrology

Painting by Mary Cassatt, Motherhood, ca. 1890.


Cancer is the sign of the Mother and child, nurturing, home and emotional safety and security. Mars is also debilitated in Cancer in a traditional sense. Mars could be seen as being “inovulated” by the Feminine. As I tuned into this energy I felt this. 


The unloved, unmothered and split off masculine energies, the wounded child who acts out by dominating women and the world could be undergoing a huge immersion of unconditional mother love very, very, deep in the collective unconscious at this Capricorn Full Moon. 


I can smell the mother’s milk of Divine kindness now. 


Open your mouths starving children and all of those who have PTSDS. ‘Suckle as much as you need, to your hearts content. Then lay your blissed out body, spirit, and soul onto the Great Mother’s thousands of breasts and sleep and heal.

Tune into this energy during the three days of and after the Full Moon until the first crescent appears. All you have to do is call upon the Great Mother of All That Is to nurture you, love you, hold you, nurse you, heal all the wounds. This is the highest aspect to work with what is lacking in the shadow of the collective unconscious right now.

Pink pussy Full Moon in April

The Full LIBRA Moon on April 10 @ 11:08 pm PDT/ 11th @ 2:08 am EDT/ 6:08 am GMT is known by many names, the Pink moon because of pink mosses and phlox flowers but also known as the Sprouting Grass, the Egg Moon, and the Fish Moon. All of these names are synonymous with the Divine Feminine.

LIBRA, an Air sign, symbolizes cosmic  balance. The scales are those of the Ancient Egyptian Goddess Maat’s scales of justice, #8 or #11 in the TAROT. Maat weighs human hearts against her ostrich feather after death. If one’s heart is heavier than her feather than rebirth is necessary until all balances out. Libra is ruled by VENUS, the Goddess Herself who is at the degree of her EXALTATION, where she is the most beautiful, spiritual and powerful especially in her Retrograde phase. Expansive optimistic JUPITER is by her side bringing fortune and more beneficial energies and riches.

Pink Pussy Full Libra Moon, Tara Greene

This is a super powered very feminine Full Moon. I call it the PINK PUSSY Full MOON like the women’s resistance in the U.S. who were wearing Pink Pussy hats. This Full Moon indicates a further blossoming of that energy. 

The MOON is conjunct the FIXED STAR SPICA, signifying and marking, the Ear of Wheat in the Constellation of VIRGO, the Virgin’s left hand, at 23 degrees of LIBRA in Tropical Astrology. SPICA is a huge white dynamic star, 2300 times more luminous than our Sun. The light we see from coming from this Fixed Star is 275 years old. 

This star is considered BENEFICIAL, as it overcomes contentions, and removes scarcity and mischief. Rules emerald, periwinkle, sage, mugwort and mandrake or ginseng.  The star brings honors and fame, good fortune for scientists, artists, painters, sculptors and musicians. “If SPICA is conjunct JUPITER-as is the case now-“promise is given to people of humble origins, to enjoy protection, preferment and even wealth.” -4. Fixed Stars and Their Interpretation, Elsbeth Ebertin, 1928, p.57.

SPICA rules the navel. This is the hara, or 3rd chakra, connected to the will center. Focus on this chakra during your full moon meditations. 

“Spica is considered to bring psychic and spiritual energies to those who have Moon, Venus, Neptune or Lilith connected to it.” – The Living Stars, Dr. Eric Morse, 1988, p.67. This book has been a mainstay of my astrology readings for man years. I have my natal VENUS conjunct Neptune on SPICA. 

According to ALICE BAILEY, in ESOTERIC ASTROLOGY, VIRGO us one of the most symbolic signs for the whole goal of the evolutionary process. 

“VIRGO stands for the womb of the Goddess. In this constellation where the Full Moon falls, soul and body are blended. Its origins descend from ATLANTIS, and represent a female dominated society honoring the mothering principle, Ceres or Demeter. In Babyl she was Ishtar, Queen of the Stars, and in India she was identified with Kanya, the maiden and mother of Krishna. Medieval Christians saw her as the Madonna, in Roman times, as the Goddess Pax with her olive branch. She has been identified with the Saxon goddess Eoestre  whose name still survives as Easter, coming up soon. She has also related as Diana, Minerva, Athena, and occasionally as Urania, muse of astronomy.”

“By the Kabalists Spica is associated with the Hebrew letter Gimel and the 3rd Tarot Trump “The Empress.” [Robson p.66-67.]” which is VENUS.

Empress Tarot cards Tara Greene

We are pregnant with feminine possibility.

The SUN, evolutionary URANUS and Goddess of discord, ERIS in ARIES are opposite the Moon and JUPITER in LIBRA and squared by PLUTO in CAPRICORN. This is intense pressure. Venus in PISCES is born from the oceans of PISCES and the Cardinal Crosses are like the sand in the oyster, the tension which creates the beautiful pearls of wisdom. The Pearl which is sacred to the Moon. 

Venus born from the sea,

Birth of Venus, by Henri Pierre Picou,1874

CHIRON the shaman, is very close to Retrograde VENUS in PISCES indicating where the Divine Feminine is the most powerful as SOURCE of all life and where she is also the most wounded in her most vulnerability. Both are squared by SATURN at the GALACTIC CENTER. Our greatest vulnerabilities, our ability to love unconditionally, to forgive to be compassionate and our wounds and inherent spiritual natures are being put to the test. Saturn rulers all of the “real” the third dimension, and our very bones. Saturn’s placement at the Galactic center, further tests us at the boundless boundaries of the VOID, the COSMIC WOMB itself. This place 27 degrees SAGITTARIUS is where are souls enter and exit according to MAyan cosmology.  This full moon symbolizes a cosmic REBIRTH of all of humanity. 

Do CEREMONY at the Full Moon honor all the planets and especially VENUS and bring the LIBRAN balance back into your self, your relationships and in the world.

GEMSTONE: emerald, Herbs: periwinkle, sage, mugwort,clover and mandrake or ginseng.

Capricorn Full Moon, the Devil we know

Capricorn Full Moon Intentions and Meditation, July 19

A slightly condensed version of this article is published in the COSMIC INTELLIGENCE AGENCY. I am Agent 129.Cosmic Intelligence Agency Tara Greene Agent 129

All Full Moons are completions. Every summer we reach an emotional fulfillment of what Capricorn is all about.   At the 28th degree of the 10th sign on July 19 @ 10:56 pm GMT we are immersed in lessons of reality which connects us to the feminine earthy receptive element; our bodies and our environment.

Capricorn signifies hard work, maturity, career, buildings, goals and the heights of worldly success.  Capricorn is ruled by serious, disciplined, responsible, karmic planet Saturn, the Father and time, the cosmic cop. Saturn rules seniors and confronts us with limitations, obstacles, taxes, maturity and death. Saturn is THE reality maker and matures us. The sign marks Winter Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere and summer’s beginning in the Southern Hemisphere.

Capra means a she goat and corn means a horn. Horns were considered to be ancient symbols of divinity, which draw down power from the gods. Capricorn was originally connected to the Goddess of Life and Death, connected with every woman throughout time who were pregnant or who gave birth to children into the physical plane.

Ancient Pagans saw Pan, a part goat/ human creature as the God originally associated with Saturn. Pan is earthy, sexual, animalistic, “horny.”  The Christian Church turned Pan, symbolizing our original masculine sexual animal nature into the Devil. Pan/The Devil then began to symbolize earthly temptations and sin and women’s sexuality became associated with the Devil itself as part of the Churches authoritarian control.

Capricorn, Horoscope, Tara Greene

The number seven is associated with Saturn as it governs our physical cells which replenish themselves every seven years.  Saturn governs our bones and Capricorn’s are especially prone to knee ailments and all joint problems like arthritis. Saturday is named for Saturn. The seven days of the week are governed by Saturn as it rules the cycles of time.

The ancient symbol for the sign was a mythological fish tailed, goat headed creature indicating that Capricorns have the connection to both the unconscious depths and the heights. We think of Capricorn standing for corporate structure and the Patriarchy these days. We need to remember that Capricorn has BOTH masculine and feminine attributes.

The word Cornucopia or horn of plenty is derived from Capricorn. From the Greek myth of Amalthea, the she goat who nourished the infant Zeus/Jupiter with her milk. This Moon symbolizes the fulfillment of the Horn of plenty and the steps needing to get there.

Capricorn rules business, governments, fathers, time, architects, history, museums, senators, seniors, churches, contracts, antiques, watches, anthropologists, deserts, civil servants, mathematics, granite, sculptures, bronze, chiropractors, caves, mountains.  Capricorn rules the spleen, and bones of the skeleton.

The sign of Capricorn in the Tarot is symbolized by Major Arcana #15 THE DEVIL, the ancient God Pan. We can sell our souls to the Devil for worldly material success, he is temptation. The other card symbolizing Capricorn is the Court card, the Queen of Disks.

the Devil Tarot Tara Greene

This Full Moon is an intense one. Saturn, the ruler of this Full Moon, is still Retrograde in Sagittarius and conjunct to the Fixed Star ANTARES, the rival of Mars. We feel the anger, the warring energies in the air everywhere in the world these days.

Saturn is Square Neptune in Pisces and the North and South Karmic Nodes of the Moon July 19. The gap between our hope, our dreams, our faith in the compassion of the world and the reality of corruption in corporate structures and in politics, which Sagittarius governs is huge now.

JUPITER in Virgo is sextiling MARS in SCORPIO and they are forming a YOD to URANUS and ERIS in ARIES. Ergo the crazy coup’s in Turkey, the mangled politics, the wild and better get used to it- expectedly chaotic times we are in.

There may be some backlash from the overinflated world markets.

GRAND WATER TRINE OF POWER GODDESSES

VENUS in LEO is Trining LILITH in SCORPIO and Trining ATHENA in PISCES

One of the the latest trends for women’s self-help/development is the Archetype of the WARRIOR GODDESS. Methinks this has something to do with Game of Thrones too. There were many of these ancient Warrior Queens in Europe, Britain, Greece.  We are having a modern triumverate now on this Full Moon. 

I am feeling called to create a spontaneous Warrior Goddess Meditation teleseminar Tuesday July 19 @ 8:00 pm EDT.
stay tuned I will set this up Monday ad post of FB EVENTS page and my blog.

Saturn/Capricorn is the manifestation of spirit on the densest, slowest vibrating levels, worlds or dimensions. We are all here in 3D as incarnate spirits, souls embodied. We need to respect this physical plane as it offers us all types of experiences which souls desires to learn from. We can enjoy the material world as a mirror of the higher dimensions too.

I know Saturn has a bad rep. but Saturn is really a wise SAGE teacher and not to be feared. Saturn in Sagittarius throughout 2016 and 2017 helps us to mature in our wisdom. If you respect Saturn as the great architect he will help you, but only if you are willing to do the work. No pain no gain is Saturn’s motto. Saturn does not give easy or instant fixes. His way is traditional, slow, accepting limits and obstacles to manifest your dsires.

According to the Chandra and Omega symbol for this degree by John Sandbach.

Capricorn 28. A roomful of people busily cutting diamonds. (Omega Symbol) Transforming/Receptive

(Degree Angel: ALADIAH (a-LA-dee-YAH) Looks Can Kill: Protection from the Evil Eye, Divine Grace)

 “A mirror covered with a fine film of dust.”  This degree is aware of all those things which can potentially cloud vision. It knows that the only way to keep seeing things clearly is to keep clearing away all the non-essentials, side issues and self projections. It’s not an easy task and in fact may seem at times un-doable. It is learning in the current lifetime how to look beyond these obstructions, how to sharpen the picture of anything by listening to one’s intuition. And also how to focus on the bigger picture rather than allowing obscuring and distorting details to render vision cloudy. When the diamonds of the Omega Symbol are cut, the light is allowed into them fully, and by the same token the dust on the mirror may be wiped away, which is an unending task, or the inner vision may take over so that the spiritual light may be perceived.”

 Give thanks for the cornucopia of experience that this Full Moon offers. Use the lessons of Saturn’s School of 3D experience to take you to higher planes of learning, compassion and understanding.

Capricorn’s symbols:

Colors, dark grey, somber colors

Metal:  Lead

Stones:  ruby, garnet, onyx, agate, lapis lazuli, jet, black tourmaline, tiger’s eye, malachite, fluorite, smoky quartz, peridot

CAPRICORN Cornucopia MEDITATION 

Gather the items you will need to set up your sacred circle and alter with any associated images, a goat, cornucopia, or mountain scene or symbol as you wish. Connecting with the earth element, barefoot is recommended.  Being indoors is fine too. Have a potted plant in earth and crystals, stones or animal bones representing Capricorn. 

Begin by smudging with the appropriate incense or oils. Center yourself by breathing. Light your candles one by one for each direction. I always work EAST to SOUTH, WEST and NORTH. Different traditions use different orders, use whichever feels right.  Always move clockwise. Call in the four elements, directions and the four Archangels, Michael, Gabriel, Ariel, Raphael and then close your eyes.

Give thanks for what you have learned since the Sagittarius Full Moon. Set your intentions on connecting with Saturn as the great teacher to give you practical guidance into reaping from the Cornucopia.

Breathe in through your nose, send your intention and breathe into your root chakra. Visualize or feel your root chakra growing like a tail slowly through the floor, down through the earth, past the crystals and minerals into the molten iron core.  When you feel the connection to the earth’s fire, breathe it back up again through the rocky strata back into your root chakra and then breathe it up from the lowest, 1st root chakra through each chakra one by one to the 7th chakra. You can also send your intention out beyond your crown chakra to the 8th and 9th chakras. The 8th is your Higher self, it is Gold about 1 foot above your head. The 9th chakra symbolizes the Galactic Center and beyond. Direct your energy out there, and call upon your Holy Guardian Angels to be present with you.

Now direct your attention within.  Visualize and feel yourself as a goat climbing the mountain peaks towards your goal. If you aren’t clear about your goal yet that is OK, you will try to discover it now. Feel yourself prancing easily and gracefully from one rocky precipice to another. You have no fear of heights or of falling. You are confident and focused on reaching the peak. Once you have arrived at the peak of your personal mountain ask Saturn to help you see any unconscious obstacles or karmic blockages you may have overlooked. Take your time and keep breathing.

See everything on your life’s journey from this higher perspective. The eagle comes to talk with you. You are on equal level with the bird of spirit now. Look critically at the levels and tests you need to pass in order to get to the top. Take notes. Ask Saturn for wisdom and maturity and for how to overcoming any obstacles. This is not making a pact with the devil but respecting physical boundaries.  See Saturn as a wise old man with a white beard although he can appear as any image. Sit and listen, be patient, know that you are being tested. Saturn will show you what you need to discover about yourself.

See yourself transform into an older wiser white haired elder mature version of yourself. Feel that you have eons of experience in your bones and a long memory. Visualize all the goodies that the Horn of Plenty offers you. Choose which of the goodies are the most valuable to go after. Take what you learn in this meditation into your bones. May a vow which you MUST keep to do the work to get to your goal and complete the tasks. Ask Saturn for patience.

Take the time you need. When you feel complete. Give thanks. Come out of your meditation and write down what you learned. Make a short term goal list of things you will complete in the next six months and longer.

Go out afterwards and walk, feel your body, do something practical. Be grateful for being alive and in the beauty of the physical world.

Blessings,

TARA

 

 

 

 

 

Scorpio Rebirth, Earth Day, Full Moon

SCORPIO Rebirth FULL MOON, Earth Day April 21-22

“and the earth will rise again.”

a shorter version of this article was published on the Cosmic Intelligence Agency site

https://cosmicintelligenceagency.com/full-moon-scorpio-2/

The FULL MOON IN SCORPIO’s Energy is in effect for three days. 

This Scorpio Full Moon packs a lot of significance into it. More than usual. It is the smallest full moon of the year, a micro-moon. It features the SUN at 2 degrees Taurus which is the Moon’s most exalted degree, elevating our gut instincts, high tides and our innate intuitions to their highest levels.

In the sign of SCORPIO this Full Moon is in fixed mode, yet all about change, releasing, letting go, death, decomposition, transformation and rebirth.

It is EARTH DAY APRIL 22 and the Full Moon occurs this day East of PDT. Scorpio is a water sign and water is of great necessity and we are 70% water ourselves. We need to turn our attention to what is dying in the world’s oceans and what we can do to revive Pachamama or Mother Earth. Drought and flooding from climate change is wreaking havoc. The Australian Coral Reefs are 90% bleached. Radiation leakage from Fukushima is killing many mammals. Leaching of chemicals into water reservoirs and tables damages all life in many forms.

It is also the Jewish Festival of Passover, one of the most important observances in the Jewish Calendar. The ritual of remembering how the Jewish people were slaves for 300 years in Egypt and Moses guiding them to freedom is an important mythology for all of us.

Scorpio is a sign associated with power and control. What do we need to free ourselves from at this Scorpio Full Moon? The annual Scorpio Full Moons activate instinctive, sexual and hormonal, energies along with the Tides. Scorpio, the 8th sign governs the sex organs, obsession, control, money, death, rebirth, recycling, depth psychology, our shadows, secrets, mysteries, resources, gifts from the dead, metaphysics and tantric union.

This Full Moon coincides with the Hindu festival of Hanuman, a very important deity. He is the Monkey faced God mentioned in the Ancient story of the Ramayana. In the Chinese Year of the Fire Monkey I find the synchronicity fascinating.

Hanuman has many long and colorful stories. Hanuman has mang magical powers or siddhis. He is one of the few persons, human or divine who cannot be adversely affected by planet Saturn called Shani in Vedic Astrology. Devotees of Hanuman receive the same protection by reciting his mantras, to protect them against demons and other negative energies. Call upon Hanuman if you need this protection and to protect the earth herself.

Scorpio as symbol of death is also related to the Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhist deity Vajra Yogini, who, like Kali, wears a necklace of skulls, carries a shell of menstrual blood, and a knife to cut off the ego. She is depicted as a naked sixteen years old girl blazing with sexual energy who uses that kundalini force as an obsession for becoming enlightened.  Vajra Yogini clears all past karmas, all Scorpio-like obsessions with suicide, depression, pain, self-loathing, darkness. You can call upon her to help you.

SCORPIO is associated with the Major Arcana in the Tarot of DEATH #13

Death, Tarot card reading Tara Greene

MARS and PLUTO both co-rulers of Scorpio are now moving Retrograde inviting us to tune deeply within our SOULS taking us deeper looking back on the path we have trod to get to now.

This Full Moon is chock full of shock and awe as VENUS, TAURUS’S ruling planet is conjunct to URANUS in ARIES. The aspect is exact 15 ½ hours after the Full Moon at 21+ degrees of Aries. Both the Goddess of love and the revolutionary catalyst of Light and chaos, Uranus form a square to PLUTO in Capricorn. Yes, we are re-invoking the Cardinal Crosses once again. What we thought was over is not. Both Mars and Pluto’s retrograde informs us that there is unfinished business with our resources, tools, our physical bodies and self-esteem before we can rise from the dead when Mars and Pluto both go direct on June 29th and September 26, respectively.

Change is the name of the game. Venus in Aries is the Amazon warrioress and the Divine Feminine, not limited to women only is changing the way technology, innovation, higher consciousness and a new game plane are evolving in the world.

SCORPIO ASSOCIATIONS

Celtic TREE Mythology: Scorpio is associated with the willow tree. The Willow forms the wicker or Wicca man who is sacrificed on the fire on Beltane May 1st.

SCORPIO FULL MOON MEDITATION:

The snake is a primordial symbol of change, long associated with women, the menstrual cycle, kundalini energy and death and rebirth. If you are afraid of snakes, and many people are, you will have to work through this fear now. Trust in this process, it may work miracles for you in so many ways. Call upon the Gods and Goddesses to help you.

Minerals for SCORPIO 

Moldavite, Kunzite, Labradorite, malachite, Moonstones, Ruby, garnets, red corral for Mars.

Set up an alter or sacred meditation space.
You will need to have bowls of water to meditate or scry over.

Incense:

Frankincense, Galangal, Pine Resin, myrrh, clove oil and violet.

Put on quiet Tibetan Buddhist monks chanting meditation music.

You can pre-record these instructions with pauses to listen to as you do the meditation.

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 lie down. Lying down is very effective to connect with Scorpio energy.  You can do this ritual outdoors.  Best to do this with your eyes closed.

Choose to work on what you wish to transform, let go of and shed like a skin in order to grow. 

Begin to breathe, slowly and focus your attention on your pelvic area and sexual organs. Breathe into your root chakra whose colors is RED.  Keep breathing naturally until you  feel the chakra heating up, to tingle and pulsate. If you don’t sense this, it’s OK just keep breathing and using your intention and your imagination. Visualize a small fire. This is your own kundalini snake/sexual energy you are feeling.

Then send your breath and your intention down from your root chakra into the earth. Send it past rocks, and crystals, deep down into the very heart flame of Mother Earth in the Underworld. It is safe, dark, moist, hot, mysterious and full of power. 

Feel the connection with the Kundalini serpent power of the earth. Ask the earth energy for help in transforming, understanding and letting go of any issue, aspect or situation in your life which is keeping you from growing. Wait, breathe, stay with whatever comes up; keep your intention clear. You may meet a guide, an animal, or something you have never imagined before. Stay calm in your breathing and allow the sensation, scene or action to play out. Even if nothing appears to be happening, it’s OK. something is going on which is invisible but still real. Your higher self knows this. Ask for a symbol, word, color or sign to bring back with you. Stay with it. Give thanks to the chthonic ancient power of the underworld for your gift. Then in your own time, bring your attention back up from the core of the earth to your own body and root chakra. 

Breathe and slowly move your breath up from the base chakra up, one at a time, slowly opening and expanding each chakra with your breath from the root to the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, until you get to the top the crown chakra.  Breathe out of top of the crown chakra. Feel your central chakra channel expand and stay centered. At each breath feel the transformational power of the snake within your breath transforming you from your core.  Stretch your body.  Move your body like a snake. If you do yoga you can move into Cobra position.

Now see, sense and feel yourself shedding your skin, watch it peeling off you like a sunburn naturally and easily as you breathe. Slip out of your old skin of limiting beliefs and feel a brand new skin revealed. This is your rebirth. You have shed the old you.

From this newly transformed place think about how you can use your newly vitalized reborn self wisely.  Feel the freedom, the aliveness, the new you. Slither and dance a celebratory snake dance. The impulse may be to go out and connect with others but its best to stay within this new skin and let it settle on you.

Record whatever thoughts and feelings on your phone or on paper. Pay attention to your dreams during the 3 days of the Full Moon.

Listen to your instinctual snake wisdom, it is as ancient as the earth itself. 

Blessings,

TARA

Leading with our Hearts, Leo Full Moon

Full Moon in Leo, Leading with our Hearts, from Jan 23-24 2016

Leo Moon Christmas Eve Astrology

Sidney_Hall_-_Urania’s_Mirror_-_Leo_Major_and_Leo_Minor Sidney Hall [Public domain]

The first Full Moon of 2016, at 3+ degrees of Leo, arrives Jan 24 @ 1:45 a.m. GMT.  It’s called the Old, Snow or Wolf Moon in Native American traditions and Almanacs. In the Southern Hemisphere, it’s called the Buck, Thunder or Mead Moon. These symbols all add extra meaning.

All Full Moons bring fulfillment. Leo is a Fixed Fire sign, of Royalty, leaders and the King of Beasts. Leo rules actor’s, actresses, it is naturally dramatic, flamboyant and domineering. Leo is strong in all those who love to be center of attention, commanding center stage. Leo is courage, passion, pride, will, and the heart.

Leo is the 5th sign which also rules children, creative self-expression, giving love, generosity of spirit and all acts of the heart. Aslan, the great lion from The Chronicles of Narnia, symbolizes Christ consciousness, you can call him into your ritual.  This is a heart full of Soul Moon where we need to open our hearts fully, living with strength, passion and creativity.

Leo’s ruler is the SUN itself, which is the source of all Life, The Light, pure gold. Leo is the Fire of the Holy Spirit. When we are in touch with Spirit directly, Leo’s Golden fire energies, we are fearless, a burning flame of pure heartfelt clarity and intensity. Ancient Kings attained power through being shamans and healers for their people.

The Sun was also known as Sol, and the pun of Sol and soul is obvious. Think of a flamenco dancer’s passionate execution of will and strength in their performance as Leo energy.

The Tibetan Buddhists say that the Heart is the locus of the conscious mind and the physical brain is but the computer than makes the body function. The Native Americans say the same thing.  Scientific research and The Heart Math institute’s work shows that the heart is primary and is the first organ developed in the fetus before the brain. The heart also has its own brain. Western culture has largely stopped  using the heart as the prime mover as Indigenous peoples always have.  We praise reason over passion.

The incidence of heart disease and heart attacks is one of the biggest killers in the Western world and is increasing for men and women as we stop listening to the passion in our hearts. This heart dis-ease also relates to balancing our lives with our dependence on Aquarius technology which tends to take us further and further away from our hearts and feelings. This Full Moon’s intention is to fully embrace the heart as central logos.

 Leo’s shadow side is ego, greed, pride and being caught up in the power, prestige and wealth that Royalty commands. The right of Kings gave the old Lords the ability to rape, use and abuse anyone they wanted without punishment. We see this kingly egomania in the super-rich, the 1% who only care about their own wealth and power while raping, pillaging and scouring the earth for more and more stuff to assuage their egos, to make themselves feel immortal and imperishable like the Sun.

The Aquarius Sun opposite the Moon, rules technology, freedom, individuality, revolution, and higher consciousness balances the Leonine need for Selfhood with the needs of the group, for tribal unity and for each to express themselves in a non-hierarchical group.

MEDITATION ON THIS FULL MOON

TAROT cards of LEO

LEO is the sign on the Major Arcana of STRENGTH # 11 or 8 in the Tarot. The Sign of Strength, traditionally shows a woman holding open the jaws of a lion or riding a lion with an infinity symbol over her head, indicating that she has learned to control her unconscious animal instincts. Lionesses are fearless protectresses of their young and live in matrilineal groups. The Sign of Leo also symbolizes the Inner child who naturally expresses itself in art, song, dance and play.

The Court card for Leo is the Prince of Wands. The five, six and seven of wands represent each Decan of Leo.

Always move clockwise. Call in the four elements and the four directions into your sacred circle. Call in the four Archangels, Michael, Gabriel, Ariel, RAPHAEL in the same order.

Have a rattle, spoon or something to keep rhythm with if sitting.
Center yourself by breathing, sit or lie down, close your eyes.

Begin to breathe, naturally deeply, sending your breath down your spine into your root chakra. Enjoy the feeling of being a live spark of spirit. With your intention send your breath down your spine ruled by Leo, into Mother earth to ground you. Mother earth also has a heart flame at her center. Go down and merge with her fire and then breathe it back up through your tail bone, bringing the hot breath up through each chakra one at a time from the root to your HEART CHAKRA, The color is dark green, sometimes tinged with pink.  You may feel your heart expand and feel hotter.

Feel your heartbeat. Sense your heart. In your imagination go into your heart. Imagine entering the walls of your heart and noting the four chambers. You will hear the loud pounding and the swishing of the blood. It will most likely be dark, you can state Let there be light and watch it light up. See the walls of your hearts inner landscape. Let go of any preconceptions. Allow yourself to be present in your heart scape. Ask yourself which heart chamber you need to visit. Follow your subtle feelings. Touch the walls of your heart, the more fully you sense this the better. Will yourself into one of the chambers in your heart or if that doesn’t feel appropriate just stay centered. Feel yourself vibrating with the drumming of your heart.

Ask for your courage, will, creativity and self-expression to expand. Call it. Be open, it may be a large cat, a black panther, lion or lioness, cougar, leopard or cheetah. The animal may be a totally different type, so whatever shows up is fine. An alligator, hippo, a shark, whale, eagle, dolphin, turtle, trust that is what you need.

Welcome your power animal. Thank them for appearing. Ask questions of them if you have specific ones or just say I am open to receiving your wisdom, love and protection.   If no animal appears, just stay in your heart and breathe love and feel the love that emanates from your heart. If there are blocks or pain then call upon Archangel Raphael to help heal your heart. If you need to cry then do so, use the pull of the moon to let your feelings out.

This conversation may take a while. Simply surrender. Begin to meld with the animal spirit, feel every muscle, breath in harmony with one another. Revel in your instinctual natural body strength, wisdom and energy.  Trust the process. You may be given directions.  Let go of your false vanities and your selfies. Vow to follow them, to open your heart, to source your strength.

When you feel fully saturated, thank your power animal from the bottom of your heart. Slowly extricate yourself and come back slowly to full consciousness and awareness. Write down or record your experience.

Feel the tenderness, strength courage healing and passion pumping in your veins. Vow to love yourself and others more, to care for your heart and those you love. Vow to star in your own life and your own movie. You are the Queen of King of your own Life. Vow to protect animal rights and the innocent.  Vow to play with your inner child more, dance more, be creative in everything you do.  “Follow your bliss” as Joseph Campbell famously said.  

Blessings,

Mothers Meditation Cancer Christmas Full Moon

The Cancer Full Moon Mother Meditation
by Agent 129 TARA GREENE Cosmic Intelligence Agency 

Cancer North Node Astrology Tara Greene

Sidney_Hall_Urania’s_MirrorCancerThe restorationist, Adam Cuerden, requests attribution

The Full Moon, December 25, Christmas Day @ 11:11 am GMT is a very rare occurrence. It hasn’t happened since 1977 and the next Christmas Full Moon won’t happen until 2034. The message is be in the now and don’t miss it. At 3+ degrees Cancer it is the sign of the Mother, the Great Mother, receptivity, family, nurturing, food, the stomach, instincts, intuition, the oceans, nourishment, emotional safety, security, Home, roots, foundation, the womb, protection, the matrix.

Cancer is a cardinal water sign governed by the Moon. This is a beautiful Full Moon synchronicity as Christmas is all about celebrating birth, family, giving and children. This Christmas will be a very emotionally loaded situation. The connection to the Divine Mother and her Divine Child brings unconditional Healing love for all the children of the world and we do so need to receive that now. Call upon the Moon Mothers, Egyptian Goddess Isis, Diana, Kwan Yin, Tara, there are hundreds of them, to show you their love and to heal your heart, womb and soul so that you may spread your love to all the children, the oceans and rivers. This Full Moon is a time of fertility. The Full Moon in Cancer will exert event stronger pulls on our emotions and the tides. The Werewolf myth symbolizes the wild, unconscious, instinctual responses we have to the Full Moon. It is naturally a time of strong sexuality and the only time during the month when our ancestors would be out at night, safely enjoying a moon bath.

This Full Moon will greatly exaggerate our emotions, our hearts and our unquenched thirst for love. We all have inner children whose need to be loved, accepted and appreciated never diminishes. Cancer rules the stomach and all eating disorders are connected to the lack of being breast-fed, bonding with the mother, or lacking a sense of emotional safety as young child. Of course this Full Cancerian Moon will be stirring our moods and upsetting our tummies. Be mindful of over-eating as emotional compensation, to numb out stressful feelings

In the Tarot the sign of Cancer is symbolized by Major Arcana #7 The Chariot.

The Chariot is a very spiritual card as it relates to the emotional body being the vehicle or chariot that the soul uses. To navigate the Chariot one must have total emotional control. The Charioteer dressed in armor of gold and encrusted with jewels in the Thoth tarot holds the Wheel of Time/Karma/ Fortune in their lap. This Card signifies that if one can control their emotions they control and guide their karma/future/ fortune.

The obvious questions that come up:  Are you in the driver’s seat? How will you stay in equanimity when you are with your family and all the old childhood triggers happen? Of course this Full Cancerian Moon will be stirring our moods, and upsetting our tummies, which Cancer rules. This may be a Christmas of over-eating as emotional compensation, to numb out feelings.

Cancer 4. People watching fireworks in the distance.
The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “Weeping willows by a pond.” The fronds of the trees reach down toward the water. Knowledge (as symbolized by trees) seeks connection with the emotional and intuitive realms. At the other extreme – high in the sky – are the fireworks of the Omega Symbol, and unlike the closeness of the fronds to the water, they are at a distance. They signify spiritual glories, the fiery, free, and beautiful energies of the ethereal realms. These are the two places where we need to focus our attention – deep inside ourselves (the pond) and far outside ourselves into the infinite. The more aware we become of these two realms the more we see they they are reflections of each other, and that ultimately they are the same – there is no inner or outer, only the oneness and unity of self.

This is the best time to bring out your crystals to be washed in the full Moon’s light. Also making tinctures for women’s reproduction is done under this Full Moon.

Set up a sacred meditation space, alter or mesa.

You can pre-record these instructions with pauses to listen to as you do the meditation.

MUSIC: soft flowy, watery sounds, whale sounds, or heartbeat rate drum beat.

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 lie down, close your eyes.

Sit upright. Begin to breathe, slowly, naturally and deeply. Let all your thoughts dissipate as you breathe in and out. Pay attention to your breath moving in through your nostrils filling up your lungs and then being released as your lungs empty, breathing out through your mouth. Pause after you exhale for a few seconds then slowly breathe in for the count of four and be aware of the air entering your lungs and filling them. The deeper you breathe, the more oxygen enters your body and brain. This expands your consciousness and awareness and your entire body relaxes.

Breathe into and be aware of your womb. Put your hands on your 2nd chakra. Men also have a spirit womb. We want to go back into the unconscious memories of being in our mother’s and in the Great Mother’s womb.

Feel how you are totally loved and inseparable from the physical, spiritual and emotional ground with your mother. You are One with the Universe who is your Mother.  If you had a difficult relationship with your mother, or if you were unwanted emotionally while your mother was pregnant, or you were abandoned, then this is the perfect time to heal those issues by connecting with the Divine Goddess.

Imagine that you go back in time to before you were born in this life. See and sense yourself as a small baby in utero. Listen. You will hear the pounding of the heartbeat of your mother, as a steady drum beat.  Ba boom, ba boom, ba boom. This was the constant rhythm that accompanied every child every moment before birth. It is pitch black and you are weightless, floating in the amniotic sac. You have no thirst and no hunger, your needs are automatically cared for, continuously fed through your umbilicus and the placenta. Feel the sense of total ease, joy, connection, warmth, safety and security.

Imagine the Great Goddess, you can see her as Mary if you are Catholic, or as the Great Mother, Demeter, Yemaya or Kwan Yin.  Feel her take you magically into her womb. Feel yourself having a joyous easy ecstatic birth. Feel the Great Mother take you to her breast and nurse you. Taste the ambrosia, which you eagerly gulp down and which makes you feel dizzy with joy and bliss. Your tummy feels filled and satisfied. Feel her gazing into your eyes and your soul. Feel her heart totally embracing you with unshakable love. Your body will begin to relax, to trust, and to feel nurtured as you receive this unconditional love like a hummingbird drinks nectar. Do this and allow whatever feelings and sensations of peace, contentment, and relaxation arise.

Soak up the love for as long as you wish. You may fall asleep, that is ok. Remember that the Divine Mother has always been and will always be there to hold you, protect you and nurture you. You are safe, loved and secure. When you are filled with unconditional love then you have more than enough love in your heart to share to give unconditionally to others.

Come out of this meditation feeling content, blissed out, relaxed and satisfied. This is the peace. Do this meditation daily. Thank the Great Mother.

Pregnant mothers: this is an excellent moon to really connect with your unborn child. Think about giving birth in as natural a way as possible. It is the most important transition in anyone’s life. Water births are very safe and labor is easier for the mother and child. Get a midwife, she will empathize in a way that no doctor or gynecologist will. Home births are the safest and easiest for mothers.

Wishing you and your family a happy joyful Holiday.

Moon Mother by Lisa Thiel  

Lovers Full Moon Meditation November 25

The Full Moon on November 25, is @ 3+ degrees Gemini, Wednesday @ 10:44 pm UT/5:44 pm EST/ 2:44 pm PST

This is a powerful Full Moon of Embodying the Lovers of the World or the world lover. Are you one?.

The constellation of Gemini was imagined as twin human brothers and the battle between opposites, the twins is an ancient archetypal symbol in almost every culture. Gemini literally symbolizes the twin halves of the brain and our two lungs. We also live in an apparently dualistic universe. Everything has its opposite, day/night, south/north, male/female, yin/yang, heaven/earth, light/dark. good/evil At this Full Moon at 3+ degrees Gemini, Wednesday UT @ 10:44 pm we have definitely reached a fulcrum of the Us vs Them conversation.

GEMINI is the first Air sign and symbolizes the first breath of life at birth. Gemini is consciousness itself, communication, thinking and information.

GEMINI is associated with the Trump Card

#6 THE LOVERS

the Lovers Tarot Card Reader

Gemini is ruled by the Planet MERCURY, or Hermes, a hermaphrodite, {Hermes/Aphrodite] is dual sexed. Mercury is the Mercurial, fleet-footed winged messenger of the Gods. As Hermes he is THOTH to the Egyptians who taught humankind the secrets of immortality and to whom the famous “As above, so below.” maxim is attributed. Mercury rules Wednesday. Mercury is also known as a Trickster in mythology, and is known as Coyote in Native American tails. Does your mind play tricks on you?

In the Tarot, Air is symbolized by swords, which cut through the tangle of distractions. All heroes and heroines must battle with their sword of discrimination, severing Hydra’s heads, battling dragons or negative thoughts.

MERCURY in the Tarot is the 1st Trump the MAGICIAN.

Magician Thoth Tara Tarot reader

The word magician comes from the root word Magus, Magi, whose root word is Image, imagination. The Magician/Mercury is everyone’s internal magic wand. Just like in Harry Potter, your intention, your thoughts/sword, is your mental focus, your consciousness. Combined with desire/intent creates whatever you wish. This the Law of attraction. As you imagine or think, so mote it be. Consciousness is all that is, is everything that exists.

Mercury also rules Virgo and it is the final dispositer of the Full Moon, Jupiter and the North Node. Jupiter and Mercury are in a mutual reception and this placement really helps us to expand our mind/body connection and to stay very grounded and pragmatic amidst all the chaos that we have been feeling lately. Gemini is a mutable sign, adaptable, malleable. These are very changeable times with Jupiter, the North Node, Sun, Saturn, Mercury, Neptune Chiron and the South Node all in Mutable signs. We need to be able to adapt.

This Full Moon has Mercury conjunct Saturn it is a very serious deep think time. The Full Moon is opposed by Saturn and Mercury and in square to Neptune.There are some very serious and mature questions, ideas and choices which need to be made. Saturn and Neptune’s first square the day after this Full Moon really brings to the fore, the illusions, sleight of hand and projections which are communicated by the mass media.

GEMINI‘s who are born May 22-June 1st f any year will get this Full Moon impacting your Sun directly. 

VIRGO ‘s who are born August 24- September 3rd  will also feel the pressure from the Square 

PISCES who are born February 19-March 1st  also get the square/ conjunction pressure. 

SAGITTARIUS who are born November 23- December 1st will get the conjunction/opposition aspect.

LIBRA and AQUARIUS get some benefits from the Full Moons’ air quality. 

But LIBRA  is being quincunxed by Neptune. Beware of being so nice you are a martyr in your relationships.. You may be in a dream about love which is not real.  Watch your alcohol and addictions especially around this full moon. 

SCORPIO born in the first week of the Sign may feel more irritable and torn apparent. 

CAPRICORN‘s born in the first week are also in the quincunx to the Gemini Full Moon and will feel irritated.

ARIES  and LEO  get the pleasant sexy sextile, many new lovers to choose from in you life.

But Leo is being quincunxed by Neptune. Beware all that glitters is not gold, you are being set up like Narcissus to fall in love with your own projection. 

TAURUS and CANCER are inconjunct to the SUN SATURN MERCURY energy and this may make you feel tired, blue, disappointed and cynical. 

Look at where 3 degrees GEMINI and 3-8 degrees SAGITTARIUS and 7 degrees PISCES are in your natal chart to see where the BIG stand off between the ILLUSION And the Dream are for you.

Which side of the looking glass are you on?

 

 

ORACLE SYMBOL

The 4th degree of Gemini according to the Omega symbol by John Sandbach is:

“From a mountain, people watch a tsunami”

You can often feel what is coming- how the energy is going to move or change, and because of this you can put yourself in the place you need to be to either protect yourself from it, or use it to maximum benefit. You need to find the right context in which to share your ideas and not try to relate them to those who aren’t receptive.”

“CHANGE is the point. If it comes at us, we need to take the high road to the mountain to see the overall meaning and significance of it, if we choose it and go to the island, we need to be sensitive to the rightness of the timing of our adventure.’

Pleiadian Symbol:” A magician searching for rare herbs.
Azoth Symbol: “A man who can see through the eyes of a high-flying bird.”

The synchronicity of the Magician is very important as it is Mercury. The high-flying bird is always an Eagle, a bird of Spirit. Think about these symbols and what they say to you during the meditation.

BREATHING MEDITATION ON THIS MUTABLE FULL MOON

Gemini is associated with #6 The Lovers, and the King of Swords. All suits of swords or Air. If you have a Tarot deck pull out these cards to act as Guides and Mascots for this meditation.

This is a DUAL INTENTION

  2. Questioning our ego assumptions and embodying the Lovers.

MUSIC: wind instruments. Carlos Nakai Native American flute music. https://youtu.be/EaCCxtL2rAE

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 lie down, close your eyes.

Sit upright. Begin to breathe, slowly, naturally and deeply. Let all your thoughts dissipate as you breathe in and out. Pay attention to your breath moving in through your nostrils filling up your lungs and then being released as your lungs empty, breathing out through your mouth. Pause after you exhale for a few seconds then slowly breath in for the count of four and be aware of the air, pneuma, the breath entering your lungs and filling them. The deeper you breathe, the more oxygen enters your body and brain. This expands your consciousness and awareness. The more air comes into your body the more your entire body relaxes.

Be aware of your solar plexus, this is the 3rd chakra, the MANIPURA, meaning jeweled city. Seed symbol is Ram. Vowel Sound is Ah.

This chakra is like a blazing yellow SUN. This is your spiritual will center. Two fingers-width below your navel, extending your will out into the cosmos. Feel your 3rd chakra lighting up, getting brighter, sunnier, and glowing. Keep doing deep mindful breathing as your mind gets emptier and emptier.

This chakra also related to the 5th Visuddha. Seed symbol is HAM. Vowel Sound is EEEEE.

Keep breathing naturally and deeply, and begin to use your breath to sound, chant or sing. Sounding is very healing. Sound the Vowels for the 3rd and 5th chakra.

Then beginning by sending your breath down your spine to your root chakra. Sense being rooted to the earth and work up through each chakra one at a time until you get to the crown chakra whose colour is white. The thousand petalled lotus.

As you sound and fill your lungs with more breath, breath after you have reached your crown chakra then send the breath down your spine and through each chakra through your root chakra into the earth. Send it past the rocks, and crystals, deep down into the very center of Mother Earth. Feel the connection of your breath to the fire and earth and water elements of the earth. Then bring your attention back up from the earth through the root chakra back into your lungs.

CALLING the Angels

Archangel Raphael Tara Greene

Call upon the Archangel Raphael to bring healing into wherever you need it in your mind and thoughts. Look at what choices you have made and how they have put you where you are in your life now.

Mercury travels between the realm of the Gods and Goddesses, Your Higher self and you. Ask him the major questions you need to further your progress. Ask Mercury if he has any messages for you. Ask Mercury to tune up your mind, to have it work clearer, purer, and to hear directly the conversation with your Guardian Angel.

To embody the Archetype of Gemini through the Lovers.

By marrying your masculine and feminine side you become whole. Become aware of the right hand being associated with your logical masculine side connected to the left side of your brain. Then become aware of your left hand being connected to your intuitive, emotional feeling, feminine right side of your brain.

Bring both your hand together and clasp your fingers together. This physically and mentally combines both sides of your brain and makes you into a hermaphrodite. Bring your intertwined fingers up to your mouth and lower your head. This is a prayer position. From this place of prayer and unity, feel how you are whole, united, you have both masculine and feminine within. The Lovers is about self-love, wholeness, Oneness. Feel this Inner Lover. Feel your love for them and them for you. Give and receive. This is the unconditional love of the Beloved. Rumi wrote thousands of love poems once he felt the presence of the Beloved within. When you do this magical inner work with your Beloved, love appears everywhere around you. With this knowledge you can go into the world and speak love, discriminate with love. Be a Lover in the world.

At this Full Moon give be Grateful and give thanks for all you have in your life, say it aloud. Come out of your meditation. Write down whatever images, gifts, words, sensation came to you. Stay with this energy over the next two weeks until the New Moon in Sagittarius.

ONE WHISPER OF THE BELOVED_ RUMI  

 

 

 

Rich October Astro Preview by Tara Greene

Hi well I am back in Toronto. Feeling a little bit like I am in two places at once. After September’s Super Total Blood Moon and Virgo Solar eclipses October is rich and earthy in its own way.  RICHES is really the keyword. Diplomacy, Romance, love and sex, dreams, beauty, creativity and communications are very much featured for all signs. Earth signs take center stage. Those Cardinal T-squares are reignited. 

Mercury Turns Direct October 9 as Venus leaves her shadow period of Retrogadation July 25- September 6. 

From the 8th onwards as Venus enters Virgo again, the Planet of Relationships and Mercury the Messenger are in Mutual Reception,hosting  each other in each other’s sign.  This facilitates  all types of communications enabling us to  precisely say what you mean and clarify all the details. No second guessing or taking things for granted.

There are three MAJOR and powerful EARTH TRINES this month, three of which involve PLUTO, Lord of RICHES.

earth trine merkaba Tara Greene

Merkaba byZeneteru

Virgo and Capricorn are featured largely this month Taurus benefits too.

JUPITER in Virgo trines Pluto on the 11th. This positive aspect perfects again in March with Jupiter Retrograde and in June with Pluto Retrograde of 2016. October 11 is the time to plant BIG SEEDS BIG INTENTIONS which will be re-rooted or rerouted later. This is a great transit to improve one’s discipline, health routine, exercise, budget and most especially by attending to what enriched the soul on a daily  level. Jupiter and Pluto are great for increased influence and expansion in business.  

VENUS and MARS are in extremely ROMANTIC POSITIVE DREAMY OUT OF THIS WORLD DANCE 

The both conjunct Jupiter and opposes Neptune-see dates below.  There will be reality checks.

DETAILS

October 6    INTENSE CARDINAL SQUARE, Sun square Pluto

This is a twice a yearly aspect. Igniting the difference between those in power and those trying to find balance their lives. The refugee crisis in Europe will ignite with more power battles.

Retrograde Mercury sextile Saturn in Sagittarius 

MARS in VIRGO OPPOSITE NEPTUNE in Pisces *****The Reality Check versus the Dream aspect.

Build a dream or vision board. Mars in Virgo is aggressively going over every detail, very critically and aggressively. If your dream isn’t on budget, Forget it. Its back to the drawing board. Prepared to be called on the rug and criticized. If denial, getting stoned, avoidance, procrastination or blaming others is your only answer to the jury’s questions you are in deep shit trouble. Virgo’s may fall in love and surrender!

October 8 VENUS enters VIRGO until November 8

KEYWORDS: LOVE gets down to earth and critical. Working overtime for Love.Is this a song?

Questions: Do you love your job?  Shopping spree in the bargain basement. Austerity love. 

Oct. 9 MERCURY  GOES DIRECT FINALLY! Yes but proceed with caution.

Mercury in LIBRA has made us drag the past out  into the light about our relationships hasn’t it? We have been re-evaluating how we speak and communicate and where we need to rebalance our budgets, and everything in our lives.

It will take till October 24 for Mercury to bypass its Retrograde degree. 

October 10 ******VENUS in VIRGO SQUARES SATURN in SAGITTARIUS 

A good day to launch or complete long-term projects. DO Sign on the dotted line. Create budgets for future educational, travel and publishing. NO more airy fairy, you must produce.

Oct. 11  * * *  ** 5 star day 

JUPITER TRINE PLUTO  * * * * *EARTH TRINE

This aspect is also GREAT for TAURUS AND CAPRICORN. Build the path to your greatest and most expansive goals. Great day for earth rituals. I will write later.

SUN INCONJUNCT CHIRON in PISCES 

Trying to be nice and bending over backwards for others just makes matters worse. Are you a martyr? Do you get your identity from being a victim?

SUN OPPOSES URANUS – Cardinal square Re-ignition

NEW MOON, CARDINAL SQUARE LIBRA @ 19+ degrees LIBRA { Columbus Day} 

SUN and Moon squares Pluto,Opposes Uranus. 

Moon inconjunct Chiron in Pisces  in the middle of all that. -OUCH

OCT 13 Mercury sextiles Saturn in Sagittarius  Full speed ahead. 

Oct. 15  MARS TRINES PLUTO  EARTH GRAND POWER TRINE  =earth rituals

BUILDING THE ROAD and paving the way to the top of your crowning achievements. This is also an extremely dangerous trine with the two rulers of Scorpio.  This can also be a danger from earthquakes and volcanic explosions, forest fires and ISIS or other terrorist acitivities.

Oct. 16 VENUS in VIRGO OPPOSITE NEPTUNE IN PISCES * * * * *

THIS IS THE ULTIMATE IN ROMANCE LOVE AND CREATIVITY. The difference between real love and illusion will be heightened. See beyond the veil of illusion and projections. Build that dream and make it real. Spiritual revelations and epiphanies.

Oct. 17 MARS in VIRGO CONJUNCT JUPITER IN VIRGO * * * * * * *

Rewards for those who have done an excellent and  meticulous job. Build those practical job goals. Initiate a new health and exercise regime. Map out future travel, educational and fun projects.

Oct 18 MERCURY  INCONJUNCT NEPTUNE in PISCES – communications delusions, illusions. DO NOT SIGN ON THE DOTTED LINE>

Oct 22 MERCURY in LIBRA SQUARE PLUTO in CAPRICORN ****** Cardinal CROSS energy again

OCT. 23 SUN ENTERS SCORPIO @ 10:47 am PDT /1:47 pm EDT

This is the most intense, darkest month and the deepest most soulful Sign. Birth, death, the mysteries of sex, money, power, change and transformation are the lessons of Scorpio.

VENUS in Virgo TRINES PLUTO * * * * * *

LOVE is SOULFUL,POWERFUL AND REAL. VERY RICH and grounded. Do earth rituals.

MARS in VIRGO OPPOSITE CHIRON in PISCES 

LOVE HURTS as do the bills. Nitpicking and going over the details exposes other’s wounds and vulnerabilities. There will be Anger about withheld information or lies being exposed especially in religious organizations or any Big Brand such as Volkswagon or the Vatican.

MARS INCONJUNCT URANUS in ARIES @ 9:22 pm /Oct 24 @ 12:22 am 

Anger and frustration over not enough freedom. Revolting against budgetary, cut backs, lay-offs and such. Greece and Europe may have a huge battle on their hands.

OCT. 25  MERCURY INCONJUNCT CHIRON in PISCES – same as above,battles of words and wit.

VENUS CONJUNCT JUPITER in VIRGO*  * * * *GRATITUDE

THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST DAYS OF THE YEAR.  VENUS in Virgo loves hard work, budgets and practical beauty. Jupiter expands and allows Virgo’s to chill, to relax , to smell the flowers, give themselves a reward and enjoy life’s harvest. Find love and beauty in the everyday details. 

MERCURY in LIBRA OPPOSES URANUS ****** CARDINAL CROSS ENERGY! DANGER DAY 

Be careful what you say, you may get different results than you were expecting. Peace negotiations and balance is precarious. There is real energy for major revolutions and change.

OCT. 27  FULL MOON at 3+ degrees TAURUS -will write about that in full later.

VENUS OPPOSITE CHIRON IN PISCES 

A day of opening the wounds and letting out the pain, pus, damages.  Crying is very healing. Any held back memories feelings and sensitivites can damage your health.

VENUS INCONJUNCT URANUS IN ARIES 

No matter how much order you try to establish, the horses will kick their way out of their stalls.

OCT. 30  SUN in SCORPIO TRINE NEPTUNE  in PISCES * * * * *

A very positive, deeply emotional, soulful, spiritual Victory day. But this can also prove to be  extreme fantasy and illusion. Delusional, power hungry tyrants are also a strong possibility.  Be extremely careful with drugs, alcohol and thinking you are immortal.

OCT 31 HALLOWEEN GRAND WATER TRINE

Moon in Cancer TRINE NEPTUNE  and SUN 

A very bewitching Pagan NEW YEAR. A great day to scry with water. Visions  and insights galore will appear.Be near water if you can.  In ancient days the dead were put into boats and floated down rivers to the places of eternal rest. We are born from water and this completes that cycle. A good day for water cleanses and releasing with the element of water. A good day to cry out all the pain and sadness to be washed clean.

Full Moon Plenty in Capricorn, Tara Greene

Full Moon Capricorn Cornucopia Meditation, July 1st and 2nd

All full Moons are completions. This earthy Capricorn Full Moon marks the half way point in 2015. We are half way through the year and need to take stock of what we’ve built till now and what, where, when and how we want to put our energies over the next six months when the Sun is at 9 degrees Capricorn, December 31st/ Jan 1st 2016.

Capricorn Full Moon Constellation Tara Greene

Capricorn, the 10th sign is earth, practical, Feminine and signifies career and the heights of worldly success.  Capricorn is ruled by stern, disciplined, responsible, hard working planet Saturn, aka Father time, the karmic cop, limitations, obstacles, taxes, sexuality, maturity and death. The sign marks Winter Solstice in the North and summer’s beginning in the Southern Hemisphere.

Capra means a she goat and corn means a horn. Horns were considered to be ancient symbols of divinity, symbolizing drawing power from the gods. The pagans saw Pan as the God originally associated with Saturn. Pan is earthy, sexual, and animalistic and was turned into the Devil by the Christians, symbolizing earthly temptations and sin. The number seven is associated with Saturn as it rules our bodies and cells which replenish themselves every seven years.  Saturday is Saturn’s day.

The ancient symbol for the sign was a mythological fish tailed, goat headed creature indicating that Capricorns have the connection to both the unconscious and the heights. Capricorn is feminine and receptive. We think of Capricorn standing for corporate structure and the Patriarchy these days. We need to remember that Capricorn has both masculine and feminine attributes.

The word Cornucopia or horn of plenty is derived from Capricorn. From the Greek myth of Amalthea, the she goat who nourished the infant Zeus/Jupiter with her milk. This Moon symbolizes the fulfillment of the Horn of plenty and the steps needing to get there.

Capricorn is solitary, strong, goal oriented, ambitious, dry, patient and sure-footed. Dependable, responsible, totally pragmatic, loyal, business-like and quite unemotional. Capricorn’s learn very early to adapt to the school of hard knocks, Saturn’s reality test.  When you fall down it hurts. But because Capricorn’s master and accept the limitation of the lowest density as the realm of spirit they are confident in reaching their goals, and they become younger as they mature.

Capricorn rules business, governments, fathers, time, architects, history, museums, senators, seniors, churches, contracts, antiques, watches, anthropologists, deserts, civil servants, mathematics,  granite, sculptures, bronze, chiropractors, caves, mountains.  Capricorn rules the spleen, and bones of the skeleton.

The sign of Capricorn in the Tarot is symbolized by Trump #15 THE DEVIL, the ancient God Pan. We can sell our souls to the Devil for worldly material success, he is temptation. The other card symbolizing Capricorn is the Court card, the Queen of Disks.

Goats are also scapegoats and there is lots of that going on these days.

This Full Moon is an intense one as Mars is conjunct the Sun in Cancer. We are aggressively emotional and defensive about our family’s safety and protection.  The Sun and Moon are square to the Lunar Nodes in Libra and Aries. This is an intense time of choosing our highest pathways in life.

Saturn is back at the critical 29th degree of Scorpio again, where we were in December 2014. We all have karmic lessons to finish off, somethings that must die and be sacrificed for new growth to occur.

Venus and Jupiter make their awesome conjunction today. Sun trines Neptune in Pisces do make your highest dreams desires and wishes. its really super positive.

Saturn/Capricorn is the manifestation of spirit on the densest, slowest vibrating levels, worlds or dimensions. We are all here in 3D as incarnate spirits, souls embodied, wearing a meat dress like Lady Gaga, for a karmic purpose. We need to respect this physical plane as it offers us all types of experiences which soul desires to learn from. We can enjoy the material world as a mirror of the higher dimensions too.

I know Saturn has a bad rep. but Saturn is really a wise teacher and not to be feared. If you respect Saturn as the great architect he will help you, but only if you are willing to do the work. No pain no gain is Saturn’s motto. Saturn does not give easy or instant fixes. His way is traditional and about accepting limits and obstacles.  Saturn was originally feminine as Mater/ Mother which became matter.

CAPRICORN CORNUCOPIA MEDITATION and Ritual 

Gather the items you will need to set up your sacred circle and alter with any associated images, a goat, cornucopia, or mountain scene or symbol as you wish. Connecting with the earth element, barefoot is recommended.  Being indoors is fine too. Have a potted plant in earth and crystals, stones or animal bones representing Capricorn.  

Begin by smudging with the appropriate incense or oils. Center yourself by breathing. Light your candles one by one for each direction. I always work EAST to SOUTH, WEST and NORTH. Different traditions use different orders, use whichever feels right.  Always move clockwise. Call in the four elements, directions and the four Archangels, Michael, Gabriel, Ariel, Raphael and then close your eyes.

Give thanks for what you have learned since the Sagittarius Full Moon. Set your intentions on connecting with Saturn as the great teacher to give you practical guidance into reaping from the Cornucopia.

Breathe in through your nose, send your intention and breathe into your root chakra. Visualize or feel your root chakra growing like a tail slowly through the floor, down through the earth, past the crystals and minerals into the molten iron core.  When you feel the connection to the earth’s fire, breathe it back up again through the rocky strata back into your root chakra and then breathe it up from the lowest, 1st root chakra through each chakra one by one to the  7th chakra. You can also send your intention out beyond your crown chakra to the 8th and 9th chakras. The 8th is your Higher self, it is Gold about 1 foot above your head. The 9th chakra symbolizes the Galactic Center and beyond. Direct your energy out there, and call upon your Holy Guardian Angels to be present with you.

Now direct your attention within.  Visualize and feel yourself as a goat climbing the mountain peaks towards your goal. If you aren’t clear about your goal yet that is OK you will try to discover it now. Feel yourself prancing easily and gracefully from one rocky precipice to another. You have no fear of heights or of falling. You are confident and focused on reaching the peak. Once you have arrived at the peak of your personal mountain ask Saturn to help you see any unconscious obstacles or karmic blockages you may have overlooked. Take your time and keep breathing.

See everything on your life’s journey from this higher perspective. The eagle comes to talk with you. You are on equal level with the bird of spirit now. Look critically at the levels and tests you need to pass in order to get to the top. Take notes. Ask Saturn for wisdom and maturity and for how to overcoming any obstacles. This is not making a pact with the devil but respecting physical boundaries.  See Saturn as a wise old man with a white beard although he can appear as any image. Sit and listen, be patient, know that you are being tested. Saturn will show you what you need to discover about yourself.

See yourself transform into an older wiser white haired elder mature version of yourself. Feel that you have eons of experience in your bones and a long memory. Visualize all the goodies that the Horn of Plenty offers you. Choose which of the goodies are the most valuable to go after. Take what you learn in this meditation into your bones. May a vow which you MUST keep to do the work to get to your goal and complete the tasks. Ask Saturn for patience.

Take the time you need. When you feel complete. Give thanks. Come out of your meditation and write down what you learned. Make a short term goal list of things you will complete in the next six months and longer.

Go out afterwards and walk, feel your body, do something practical. Be grateful for being alive and in the beauty of the physical world.
