World Snake Day, Kundalini Energy

It’s world snake day July 16.  DO you have ophidiophobia? Fear of snakes. Many people do. Yes they can kill you, in the Amazon they reach 30 feet. They symbolize kundalini energy the energy of enlightenment coiled in the base of your spine. Yes a snake lives in your body.  Learn to love and respect these powerful reptiles. They carry a huge symbolic and archetypal energy from the Story of Genesis on. 

They were and still are primarily WOMEN’S Symbols.

Snake Goddess Crete Tara Greene

Crete Snake Goddess/Priestess 1600 B.C.

The patriarchy Freud, made them into men’s-  phallic symbols. But they writhe like a  women’s hips. They actually symbolize the menstrual cycle. Snakes were revered and worshipped by early Goddess cultures and particularly in Crete where this beautiful snake Priestess comes from. Snakes were used by the Priestess to divine with. The oracles at Delphi, Greece had snakes on their bodies which they used along with hallucinogenic plants to trance with. They may have used the venom as a hallucinogenic poison as well.

Do you do YOGA? Snake energy is an essential part of every yoga pose.

My friend and teacher Kathleen Graham practices Snake Yoga and dances with her two pythons.

Personally I love snakes and have caught wild ones with my bare hands and always felt I could talk to them Like Harry Potter when I was a child years and years before Harry.

Magic Mike, sexy Mars trine Neptune, Vesta Intentions

July 8 Very powerful positive Trine from sexy Mars in Cancer to Neptune in Pisces at 9+ degrees @ 3:42 pm PDT/6:42 pm EDT. Yes that’s the real Magic Mike in action.  

Neptune is Venus’s Higher Octave, so this is where you make intentions and go after your soul mate, your higher spiritual dreams for the world and yourself. It’s a great day to make Tantric love, art, music, poetry, and meditate by and with water.

If you have any planets at 9 degrees Scorpio that makes a sexy Grand Trine. 

Look at which houses 9 degrees Cancer Pisces fall in your natal chart to see where the sex action is happening in your Natal Chart.

Neptune rules debt. Mars trine it means there should be a breakthrough solution or breakdown in the Greek financial crisis. Neptune dissolves, water dissolves all hardness.

this is the closest thing I could find

Mars also squares Vesta at 9 degrees Aries. Vesta is the Goddess of INVESTMENTS, so more emphasis on the economy. This aspect is another energetic to the Venus Vesta Saturn Grand Fire trine bringing that energy down into the emotional body.  read link   https://infinitynow.wordpress.com/2015/06/06/vesta-venus-saturn-grand-trine-intentions/

Questions to ask are: What and where are you choosing to invest your Mars energy, passion,desire? Squares apply pressure. You will be feeling it.  

Magic Mike Astrology Tara Greene

If you have planets at 9 degrees of EARTH SIGNS TAURUS VIRGO CAPRICORN, that forms a 6 pointed sex star. 

It’s a Merkaba what people think of as the Jewish Star is really a symbol of sacred sexual union. 

Definitely do some rituals today. Bring down that energy.

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 

 

Dream on, Landscape in the Mist, Greece….

It’s Decision day in Greece, I don’t want to get into predicting  on this. I synchronistically came upon this image and tracked it down. A picture is worth a thousand words. The pic is from a movie by famous Greek Film Director Theo Angelopoulos,translated as Landscape In The Mist whose synopsis perfectly encapsulates Greece’s current situation, as well as the rest of the world. chaos Uranus…. what do you think? 

Moon enters Pisces in the a.m.  Film, illusion, delusions, projection….

Dream on…. this is the perfect illustration for Greece right now

Landscape in the Mist a 1988 Greek Director Theo Angelopoulos

Landscape in the mist Astrology Tara Greene

SYNOPSIS by Theo Angelopoulos 
LANDSCAPE IN THE MIST is a film about the void. It is a film about despair, about the failure of contemporary society. The prodigal father who figures in almost every Angelopoulos film here has evaporated into his mythical essence – leaving his children to become the wanderers in search of him. In the «chaos», two children appear, little Alexandros and his older sister Voula. In order to exorcise their loneliness, they invent a secret universe for themselves, inhabited by their dreams. Every night they go to a train station to watch the departure of a train to Germany, where they have been deceived by their mother (herself an off-screen presence) into believing that their absent father is living. One night they finally dare to get on the train. But their voyage turns out to be hazardous and pointless and disappointing. They confront suffering, physical and moral illness, jealousy, evil and death, if also love – as many ordeals and rites as initiations. Evading the half-hearted pursuit of the police and uncaring relatives, sneak onto trains, hitchhike in vans and lorries, and suffering poverty, rape and exploitation, take a dangerous leap of faith, an eerie plunge into liberation and danger. The familiar Greek landscape – the cafes, the depopulated towns and deserted beaches – are played for a strangely harsh fairytale quality, seen through the eyes of two children whose introduction to the real world borders on the surreal. The film is filled with extraordinary, unforgettable moments that are at once real and hallucinatory and contains intriguing references to other Angelopoulos’ films. The children even encounter the Travelling Players now, thirteen years later, without a stage to act on, their costumes put up for sale. At the end Alexandros tells Voula the same story from Genesis that she told him at the start: «In the beginning there was chaos.» The children do finally reach the border, but of course there is no border with Germany and perhaps the river they cross is actually the Styx and perhaps their whole journey was a search for order in a chaotic world.

July over the top Astrology, by Tara Greene

July 1 starts out with a bang, and we may get more bang for our bucks than we expect which could be good or bad depending on where you are coming from.

Jupiter the King of the Gods, Zeus/Thor /Yahweh, called The Greater Benefic, the planet of expansion, optimism, faith humor trust and all good things is conjunct to Venus planet of love, values, luxury, money, relationships,called the Lesser Benefic in Regal Leo, sign of drama, actors, big egos, gold, vanity, pride, partying, over the top excess stuff. Jupiter rules International trade, justice, teaching, expansion, his down side is over-confidence and risk taking.

Jodorowsky, astrology Tara Greene

by William Sweeney of Alejandro Jodorowsky 

The DRACHMA DRAMA

We can see this excess over the top as symbolic of Greece’s current drachma drama. They are defaulting from excess, living like Kings, Jupiter in Leo, spending- Venus rules the gelt. They are at the point of no return. Although they can’t legally be thrown out of the EU apparently. That drama Leo’s favorite word, is unfolding about the $ and who has the power, the IMF? Modern day clash of the Titans.  It is very interesting that Ancient Greece was the foundation of modern Western society. Yes they pushed the Persians out and freed up the West. We owe the ancient Greeks an invaluable debt culturally. In a world increasingly being threatened by Islamic State Terrorists similar to the original Muslim scourge of the West,history may be repeating. Every great civilization falls, due to an invading foreigner or from its own handiwork.

Greece’s fall from Grace, a Jupiter theme, may signal a huge crisis once again in the world banking system and it is 7 years since 2008. I know about the Shemitah, these cycles are always based on the planetary cycles. The seven year cycle is Saturn’s. The 12 year cycle is Jupiter’s. The 60 year cycle is 5 x 12 = 60 Jupiter again. 

July 1/2 Capricorn Full Moon

Sun trines Neptune, rules debt,

Shining the light on the debt, on the illusion of money. The IMF prints electronic money it doesn’t exist, it is fancy hocus-pocus, it isn’t backed by GOLD, which is the SUN. 

JULY 6  SUN opposite PLUTO in Capricorn.

a twice yearly phenomena. INTENSE power struggles! Cancer is homeland, security, safety, nurturing vs, the Plutocracy. Moon is in Pisces this day it’s all about power, 

July 7

Mercury in Gemini Inconjunct Saturn – We CAN’T work it out.

Gridlock, deadlock, stalled negotiations, past shadows and ghost. Hardline death, taxes, hell to pay.

July 8 Mercury enters CANCER 

We think through our emotions when Mercury, our minds,  is in water signs, which is good. Think drowning brains. Women, children, nurturing, protection, safety, security, homeland are all big topics of discussion.  WATER and who owns it. 

MARS in Cancer trines NEPTUNE

big optimistic spiritual action day. Very romantic, great day to get married, take in the arts, be creative, imagine.  our illusions on water and who uses it. 

July 12 SUN SQUARES URANUS in Aries

I’m feeling the revolution at home.   Unusual wet weather, flooding, high tides. innovative technology. Women demanding freedom and protection.

July 13 MERCURY TRINE NEPTUNE water trine and Sun trines Chiron 

Inspiring feelings about spiritual oneness, and healing. Blessings, connections, family, forgiveness.

July 13/14 VENUS SQUARES SATURN at 28+ degrees Leo/Scorpio 

A good day to get married or to do any serious commitments or contracts which also involve pleasure, beauty, the arts, women, men, dad’s, authorities or long-term career.  This can also symbolize an end to a big financial drain. 

JULY 15 CANCER NEW MOON & MARS OPPOSITE PLUTO  5 star day ***** WARNING

the beginning of a civil war in the U.S.?  Big atomic terrorists attacks?

The two modern ruling planets of Scorpio clash. A day or emotional power struggles, Mars is war,the people vs the state, domination by the controlling party. A generally angry dangerous day. Stay home with Mars in Pluto. Cancer is the feelings of the people.  Huge splits battle lines being drawn. Operation Jade Helm in effect.

Mercury opposes PLUTO -this is the vocal part of that battle. 

July 16  Mercury conjuncts MARS

 angry words upset stomachs, family feuds. 

July 18 VENUS enters VIRGO with the Moon conjunct REGULUS

an auspicious positive day. Love and Archangel Raphael and La Luna come together. Virgo is the land, servants, hard work, budgets, accountability, the environment, the harvest, intellectual, humble. We need to be thinking and caring and loving the earth. we are the earth. 

July 18 Mercury squares Uranus 

thinking radically pushes the buttons of the emotionally fearful. 

July 19 Mercury trines Chiron

The need to be compassionate, in mind and word. Healing comes easily. Time to forgive and move on.

July 21 Cancer SUN trines SATURN in Scorpio

brightening up the somber, death throws in the financial outlook. Serious commitments are favored. 

July 22 Sun enters LEO  Mercury Trines Saturn

Leo energy is proud, loud, dramatic, big-hearted, royal. Think Big, and focus on long-term career changes, and goals. 

July 23   MERCURY enters LEO  conjuncts the SUN

Very big positive speak your mind and heart day. Say it loud and proud, A day of demonstrations. BIG DRAMAS.

JULY 25 VENUS TURNS RETROGRADE at 00 degrees VIRGO *****

this is a big turning point on many levels. Yes Venus Retrogrades every 1+ years. VENUS in VIRGO is initiating a new brand of fashion based on intelligence,  frugality, practicality and realism.  

MARKET CRASH DAY! In the sign of balancing the budget we must go back and attend to the overextending. Relationships back up and break up. Who has the power?  Old ego issues must be dealt with.  Economy goes Retrograde. Time to tighten our belts now to get used to it when Jupiter enters Virgo on August 11 for a whole year of penny-pinching.

MARS squares URANUS + new initiation into Cardinal CROSSES at 20+degrees Cancer/Aries

The Cardinal Cross energy hasn’t occurred at this degree yet. The revolution is sparked. Protests, marches, battles, the people are angry. 

July 26  Mars trine Chiron in Pisces

the people want spiritual solutions, or they want escapism and denial. This will be a major topic over his year and into 2016.

URANUS turns RETROGRADE at 20 + degrees ARIES

The revolution is fought from within. Back to the designing board for a few months. 

July 27 Mercury in Leo inconjunct to Neptune in Pisces

Pride comes before the fall. Admitting our addictions helps to open the heart. Thinking from ego destroys the spiritual process. You can’t fool the people with fake illusions of spiritual content. Using your heart mind gets you to the truth. 

JULY 29 Mercury in Leo inconjunct to Pluto in Capricorn

Inconjuncts are like foreigners trying to communicate. No comprende is the order of the day.  Power struggles stalemates. 

JULY 31 BLUE MOON- FULL MOON in AQUARIUS @ 7+ degrees 

VENUS re-enters LEO 

Blue Moons happen once every three years. 

Lots of fire trines on this Full Moon. Goddess ATHENA , ancient patroness of Greece is the mover and shaker here. Name destiny, the planets ARE the Ancient Gods and Goddesses. Sun Mercury Jupiter and hours later Venus are in Leo. The South Node, Vesta-Goddess of INVESTMENTS, Uranus and Eris Goddess of Strife are all in a GRAND FIRE trined by ATHENA. That’s a 9 alarm FIRE!!!!! Money market meltdown……

AUGUST preview August 1st PDT

SATURN turns DIRECT at 28 degrees of Scorpio on LAMMAS Pagan cross-quarter day. We are half-way to Autumn.

Aug 2 in EDT.  SATURN IS SUPER POWERFUL on this day.

Ruler of reality, death, the cosmic cop, the tax man, SATURN collects his karmic dues. Saturn has been Retrograde since March 14.  Father Time, the great leveler will stay in Scorpio until September 17.  The Hell will be unleashed, Saturn has been held back all these months.

Inspirational Card of the Day for May 2, 2013

Day 8 countdown to  Taurus Solar eclipse

the MYTHIC TAROT by Astrologer Liz Greene & Juliet Sharman Burke

   THE KNIGHT of WANDS

knight of wands www.taratarot.com

The card is also known in other tarot decks as the Prince of Wands,

it is the Air of Fire, associated with LEO.

In the Mythic Tarot he is the Greek hero Bellerophon, who tamed the winged horse Pegasus and who killed the monstrous Chimarea. He was the greatest hero and slayer of monsters.  

But he became too arrogant, trying to  fly to Mount Olympus the home of the gods. Zeus punished him, he fell to earth and lived out his life as a blind crippled hermit, alone and grieving.

This card signifies incredible courage, confidence, volatile, youthful fiery passion,  strength, indomitable will power, exuberance. 

Take risks, believe in yourself. You can conquer anything you put your soul into. This card brings adventure, charm, and the ability to move mountains but be carefull of hubris. Boasting, ego.

On a psychological level, this card symbolizes that your life is also  MYTHIC. Joseph Campbell revealed how all the Archetypes are always alive in each and every one of us. In our comic book super heroes, sports heroes, movie stars and the like just as they were to the Ancient Greeks.

You have the strength to conquer your own shadow- the monster outside.  But the  most dangerous monster is always internal- arrogance, ego.

Your response to this card? How does it fit you?

INTEGRATE the KNIGHT of WANDS as a protector spirit. His torch is there to light your way in the dark and scare away all your fears.

The Rape of the world, Pluto Retrograde Astrology for the fearless

The Moon has entered more grounded peaceful pastures in Taurus April 10 -13 Ahhh.  We need  MORE EARTH.

That  Aries Backdraft has felt pretty Torrid and intense.

People with lots of fire planets  have felt it more whiz bangingly, and you?

Begin to Plant those sparks that were conceived on the ARIES New moon.

Mood is serious Thursday as Moon opposes Saturn in Scorpio- The Bull is toro’d by the Scorpio matador. There will be RED FLAGS  but watch out for hidden swords which may castrate.

El Toro then Trines Pluto – Bull market today? Power is in the air. Toro luna then sextiles Chiron there will be wounds to lick.

PLUTO  turns Retro April 11/12  @ 11 degrees 35 minutes Capricorn till September 20 @ 8.59 degrees 

Yes Pluto heads home to Hell, the Underworld. Where he belongs. Where the Soul lives.

Pluto spends about 5 months every year going Retrograde, the Feminine inward time..

I have been reading ancient  star lore myths, feeling the need to be more poetic,

Pluto Retro is the Soul {Feminine younger soul aspect Persephone} being raped by PLUTO- Lord of CHANGE

INTO THE DEPTHS of SELF – the Underworld is the INNERWORLD – not Hell as we moderns think of it for punishing souls

I am aware of the tragedy that women and girls are being raped physically ever day in the thousands

how the Earth herself is being raped by big Multinationals, MONSANTO, oil, mining, deforestation. It makes me sad.

MYTHOLOGICAL Psychologically Rape is in the story to force one to wake up – this is  Archetypal territory here

not to be taken literally, the myth of being wounded to grow and awaken is primal, it is part of life. The parents need to push the little bird out of the nest so it can fly, sometimes they hit the ground.

Not to mention Dictators and Plutocrats in the world and governments who are destroying conquering and killing

So be fearless  for these next months. What does your soul need to feed itself, to grow now?

As if your life depended on it. As Joseph Campbell says the myths still live within us.Through us.

The myth of ORPHEUS comes to mind, he sang and played beautiful music on his lyre, a harp like instrument

Orpheus Pluto Astrology Tara Greene Toronto

Pierre Amede Marcel-Beronneau
“ORPHEUS” 1897

Something about TAURUS the throat, music.soul music.

Orpheus was married and widowed on his wedding day and was so sad he made the perilous journey to Hell and played for Persephone and Hades so they would release his Beloved to life again. They agreed on the condition that Orpheus did not look back at his wife until they reached the upper world. All was well until they almost made it out when Orpheus, overjoyed turned to look at his beautiful wife and OH NO she vanished for all eternity back to Hades. Eventually a group of women tore him apart as he spurned all their romantic desires.

What’s the moral of this story? Be tough and never falter? Move on with acceptance and grace even though your heart is broken to bits?

 Has there been a time in your life when you were so grief struck by a relationship that ended that you felt you couldn’t live without them? Or perhaps they died? suddenly? You’d do anything to get them back but in the end it failed, you had to accept it. But part of you carried the heart break and refused to go back into and trust  life.

How much time have you spent being unable to let go and accept  live?

You can rewrite the Orpheus myth for yourself.

my mythical poetic astro advice is -go gently into that good night in the days and months ahead

learn to let go completely, let go of the story and the drama around it no matter how hard

I know people who have gone through this

and I know myself too ….Pluto and Neptune are in sextile assisting DEEP, VAST, SPIRITUAL HEALING now.

If you visit the underworld daily in meditation, you can venture into those vast inner worlds

you can meet anyone and morph into anything in any time and any dimensions, and in your dreams every night

We can meet and discuss this privately or in a group

I’d like to explore and meet with you more personally

Would you like to experience a guided mediation with me and a group of like-minded ASTRO souls??

email me taragreene@sacredartscentre.com 

we could set it up through face back a private page and email

we need this now, everything is shifting and shaking.
