Symbols of the degrees of Retrograde and Stationary

Janduz interpretation written by Astrotheme for 10 degrees Scorpio is

‘ A hare watches a bright star in the sky and does not see the gun is pointed at it.” The stationary degree of 25 Libra Janduz from Astrotheme.

“A knight wearing a coat of mail and holding a sword flies to aid a man threatened by a lion. “

Scorpio governs the reproductive organs. Venus is considered to be weakened in Scorpio, Mars home sign in traditional astrology.  Women would be way more likely to experience painful problems with their menstrual periods, ovarian cysts, ectopic pregnancies, profuse bleeding, difficulty conceiving, having miscarriages, abortions or other problems.  Men may also experience sexual problems like erectile dysfunction or premature ejaculation. 

The Full Moon is in Taurus October 24/25 ruled by Venus

This may prove to be a time of major oppositions between the sexes as Taurus is notoriously stubborn. the locking of horns, The taunting the bull with a red cape and going in for the kill are all apt metaphors. 

November 7 the New Moon is in Scorpio on the 15th degree

Venus will be back in Libra at this time where she is in her strength and in her love romance relationship beauty reigning Queen.

Things to do with Venus Retrograde in Libra

Change up your beauty regimen, get a make-over or redecorate your home, bedroom or office. Beautify your beloved or your best friend for fun and out of love.

This is one of the darkest of the dark moons this year.  Much scheming, dark cloaking, invisible powers that be are moving the chessplayers around behind the scenes. Big juju is happening under the covers in the covens the sirens are rising. The witches are stirring their cauldrons making potions, saying incantations. Jupiter is also at the 29th degree of Scorpio making for one big last Sexual surprise before it enters Sagittarius the Next day!

Old lovers return. Venus Retrograde is karmic retribution in love.

Old tape loops about who you never forgave, forgot, want to get revenge on, rise up from the depth of you psyche. Be careful of behaving unconsciously and having sex with vampires during this time. It’s best to abstain. Seriously spend 40 days being celibate while Venus is retrograde could do wonders for your psyche. 

Money issues may also be an issue on world financial markets and in your personal life.

As all Retrograde times this is not necessarily a bad thing at all. It is a natural rest and review time. DO all things that begin with Re. Return, redirect, repossess, reflect, regress, repurpose, remedy, remember, and most of all relax.

Venus ends her Retrograde in Libra and we sure do need those balancing scales of justice to weigh out.

Great Mother Grand earth trine

June named for Juno Tara Greene

Juno the Asteroid popularly known for being Zeus’s wife  has entered Earthy sensuous stubborn Taurus and is conjunct to Uranus the planet that blows up the status  Quo.                                                  Uranus revolutionizes the old structures and limitations imposed by Saturn. Uranus governs freedom, inventions, technology, liberation, equalization of power, and higher inclusive consciousness.

Juno who’s symbol looks like an 8 pointed magic wand and Not a toilet brush as I once read some astrologer refer to that way is, I believe the Goddess Juno symbolizes feminine genius as opposed to masculine logical genius. Her 8 pointed star over the cross of matter symbolizes dominion over all the directions.  This perfectly suits feminine multi-task thinking., Juno is also a feminine form of genii or djinn the original Arabic nane. A genie as in I dream of Jeanie is Avery magical being like a fairy godmother. Juno’s symbol does look like a magic wand.  Juno conjunct Uranus brings a powerful feminine genius which springs from gut instincts which can strategize outside the lines.

Ceres the Great Mother and dwarf planet is in early Virgo trining Juno and Uranus. This strengthens the intellectual practical hard working maternal instincts with the attributes of Juno and Uranus.

Grand earth Trine

The two goddesses and Uranus are trining Saturn in Capricorn. Saturn is in later patriarchal terms the Father, limitation, the karmic lord, the patriarchal, historical builder. Saturn traditionally governed two signs a feminine earth sign Capricorn and a masculine air sign Aquarius. Saturn is considered Malefic and the devil by the Christian church but the church was expressly formed only to put down the goddess worshipping nature living pagans and women.the old symbol of Saturn would have seen her as the Great Mother and birthed of all life and structure in the universe. She builds our bones within Her-body. Retaking Saturn back into ancient original historical pre-literate symbolism is very empowering to me. It feels right.

With the current struggles of illegal immigrants in America being separated fro their children by the plutocratic Saturnine, patriarchal,Trump government its an empowering sign to me to see this cosmic symbol as a sign of hope.

Earth trines are supportive, look at where 0-5 degrees are in earth signs in your natal chart to see which houses this trine is supporting for you personally.

Gather strength, power, grace, beauty, intelligence, Mother love and revolutionary new ways to bring the balanced, loving, Divine mothers powers back into our world and into your life and all our lives.                                                      It is only through living, acting, breathing, loving and living as the Goddess, and  embodying the Divine Feminine can we change the world to be a better place, a place of honouring all life and all the children.

End of Patriarchy Mars Retrograde Pt. 1

Mars turns Retrograde in Aquarius conjunct the South Node on June 26 @ 9+degrees AQUARIUS until August 27th. This will be two whole months of Dog Days of summer. All energy action is on standstill. Nothing can really move forward during this time. 

The red macho planet of testosterone, the patriarchy, war, and guns, turns Retrograde for 55-80 days every 25 1/2 months. This is a rare and special transit. Mars will appear 2.7 times brighter by July 31 as it will look in the skies in May. In Vedic Astrology, a Retrograde planet is beneficial and good.  Mars will be almost as bright as it was in 2003 when it was the closest it had been to the earth in 60,000 years. So you will want to be out at night blowing off steam and raging to Mars. 

Mars Retrograde 2018 Astrology Tara Greene

When Mars entered AQUARIUS it did so on a New Moon when Uranus the planet that governs Aquarius also entered Taurus for the first time in 84 years. That in itself is a very rare synchronicity. Both of these are fixed signs.

Mars has just had an important hook-up with Venus. The exact conjunction was on Summer Solstice June 21 conjunct to the North Node in Leo @ 9 degrees+. This transit hasn’t occurred at this degree in hundreds of years. The union of the opposites.  This Venus-Mars opposition is a total symbol of the Hermetic Axiom “As above so below.”

Venus-Mars opposition June 21 is a polarizing opposition, as well as a balance of  the sexes. Venus in Leo, symbolizes the heart, love, leadership, drama, passion. Mars in Aquarius is a detached scientific Masculine energy.

The North Node is our collective “True North” our highest goal. The South Node is our unconscious past, our karma. It is where we repeat the same old patterns and lessons when we are not conscious and aware. This is a huge cosmic symbol in synch with the solstice one of the world Points.

The South Node is our karmic past which we need to be conscious of as it is our motivating factor. We can draw upon the qualities from our South Nodes but also need to release any Karmic past life debts,  baggage,  habits, self-sabotage,  and memories.

The North Node and VENUS

is our evolutionary point of growth-pointing to Leo right now. Venus is the way shower on the North Node in Leo. The North Node in Leo is a firey, masculine, passionate, spiritual inspired, dramatic wholehearted creative, self-expressive energy. The way of growth is women who courageously run like lionesses. Our true north values are straight from our heart/wills. We must follow the Divine Feminine Lion/cat goddess, Bast, Durga, Astarte, Ishtar. Asherah, Atargatis, and many more by hundreds of names.

Aquarius South Node

is a detached masculine air sign known for inventions, revolution, “scientific progress” and individualism in a collective whole. The old masculine detached mechanized way of working, in the past is out. We ate it mechanized cogs in the wheel of the machine. That way of thinking is going down the vortex of the past. 

This Mars/ Venus opposition conjunct to the Moon’s Nodes is a huge turning point in our collective evolution. This is an extremely powerful karmic opposition. The North Node is the Cosmic GPS.

As Mars moves Retrograde everything that Mars governs- men, competition, aggression, war, testosterone,anger, actions, the military, defences, guns, explosions, initiations, spontaneity, and danger gets delayed redacted, and held back, which can produce repressed rage which will explode like a volcano once Mars goes direct. Mars loves action and to be tied down and dragged backwards will infuriate the red planet. For masochists, they will love it. 

As Mars Retrogrades back into Capricorn to station on August 27 @ 28 degrees it will be at its most powerful. Mars will be squaring Uranus in Taurus at 2 degrees adding further tension and potentially even more chaotic explosive energy. Venus will be in Libra then, one of the signs she governs, graciously radiating fairness, justice, beauty, peace, balance and relating to everyone with social flare. She will also be challenging the President and all corporate powers as she will be squaring Pluto in Capricorn. It will take until October 9th till Mars gets to 9+ degrees Aquarius again and action can really begin to move forwards then.

This RED FLAG day of Mars Retrograde

indicates a 2 month very irritating, impatient clawing back period. It’s Rip Van Winkle time on speed. It also makes me think of seeing red. When we see things from other perspectives aspects and energies we see what we couldn’t see normally. Seeing RED is shocking anger and rage. This can be a very good positive thing. One of the biggest dangers of Mars Retro is repressed rage. 

Mars Retrograde is not a time to act, start, or buy anything new. It’s great for repurposing things, consignment, recycling, redress redo revamp and thrift shop buys. Many, many things will need to be renegotiated and remade. Many relationships will end as people’s values are re-evaluated.

Look back and release the anger

This is a good time for men too look back in anger, and reflect on how dangerous and violent the Patriarchy and the prevailing cultural model is. This is a good time for men to re-educate themselves to use masculine energy in a more holistic balanced and positive way. This means honoring their own feelings,their own inner feminine, called the Anima, the soul, which has been the first aspect to be shut down and raped within themselves first. Which I just realized is of course why men rape women. This is classic Stockholm Syndrome. Those who have been raped of their feeling or dignity take it out on anyone lower than themselves. or whoever they can dominate. That is what a top-down Hierarchical Patriarchal structure is. Indigenous men in traditional societies defended protected and supported when necessary the Divine feminine, the earth, and all Our Relations.

Choose love, courage, and the passion to live from your heart. Leo is the sign of the child.  Venus in Leo The lioness fiercely protects her children and works collectively with other lionesses who share power. The old patriarchal military-industrial model is over. The detached scientific progress model is over. 
This is very positive. Choose love.

Part 2 of remedies and more remarks soon.
