Samhain Witches New Year

Halloween Samhain The Witches New Year

witches Samhain Halloween Tara Greene witch

These days Halloween has become another day in the year in which to sell lots of scary rubber and plastic paraphernalia, fake blood, creaky coffin lid opening soundtracks, the Monster Mash, etc etc. another commercial holiday. Children dressed in costumes go door to door with their pillowcases {environmentally friendly} asking Trick or Treat! The kiddies are given way too much sugar, and carefully pre-packaged treats. Adults these days get into the Halloween theme by dressing up- straight guys love to be able to go out in drag on Halloween and generally party, funkily “spook-up” their environments and drink a lot. Lots of scary movies get shown.

But let’s not forget the origins of Halloween. It is Hallowed Evening. A Holy Evening, the Ancient Pagan/Wiccan New Year during the month when the Sun is in Scorpio, sign of Birth Death and Transformation. It is close to the mid-point between Autumn and Winter Solstice. Death is Rebirth. Wiccans honour this eve as the night when the veil between the two worlds is thinnest and much scrying, gazing into crystal balls and connecting with the spirits of the dead goes on as this night offers easiest access.

The Wheel of the Year Turns and this is a Sabbat or Sabbath Night, covens gather to do Ceremony. This is a Sacred not a Scared Night.

I wish in the midst of your pumpkin carving and revellery that you take time out to honor this day as it was originally intended. Remember in the midst of all the superficial trappings of Halloween, the hundreds of thousands, some say up to 9,000,000 mainly women, children and men who were accused of being witches by the Catholic Church who were tortured and burned at the stake. Old women, crones, medicine women, herbalists, midwives, pagans,their families, the poor, all innocent people who lived in harmony with Nature, who Loved their Mother the Earth, who knew the Wise Women Ways, the ancient ways to heal, to tend the sick, the dying, the mothers giving birth. It was a misogynist nazi Christian tyranny that went on for over 300 years in Europe and to the New World where the last woman was burned at the stake at Salem. Remember this Holocaust because it wasn’t so long ago. You didn’t have to be Jewish or Muslim you mainly just had to be a woman and therefore evil in the sainted eyes of the Holy Christian Church.

I remember my own burning, the Inquisitors {one of whom turned out to be in this present life, my first husband, and a couple of Real Estate Agents, one Jewish, one Black} I relived this memory during a Holotropic Breathwork session. Many other women also relived the same experiences. It was horrible, my own two children were forced to stand and watch as their mother was tied to the stake and the fire lit. Of course I wasn’t meek or mild, I screamed and cursed them all for their inhumanity and ignorance, for their sadism and cruelty.

Those 100,000-200,000 to 9 million innocent souls who were terribly tortured and burned are back now on this earth.

Deep in the cells of your being in your cellular consciousness be you male or female at this time, you remember the Burning Times when you lived in total fear, when you hid you pagan religion, your ability to help, to heal, when tyranny was all around and anyone could accuse you of being a witch thereby ensuring your almost certain death. Watch The Burning Times a Canada Film Board movie which chronicles in detail this stain upon humanity.

Light a candle for those hundreds of thousands of souls who were innocent and remember what it was like. Given 6 degrees of separation you or someone you love, your children or your dog or cat, a friend or even your landlord was surely enough one of those people.

It’s time to acknowledge the deep pain in the shadows of our unconscious. The only way to heal it is to acknowledge that shadow, let the tears flow, the grief, the agony. This brings it out of unconsciousness otherwise that shadow control our actions unconsciously and allows us to keep inflicting pain on others and self, believing that we are not worthy, not lovable, deceitful, sinners, powerless. There is a collective shadow of women being afraid to hold their power and beauty.

As this is a New Year in the Ancient Count of Days Light a Candle of Illumination and Enlightenment and go beyond the rage, the anger into Love and Forgiveness. For the only way out is to forgive the accusers for their ignorance. This takes great strength and courage, for as you Forgive them you also forgive yourself and allow yourself to be free of the past.

They will get their karmic comeuppance.

Monday Fantasy and Dreams

Monday is MOONDAY and The PISCES MOON trines Magnanimous Jupiter and the SUN in the wee hours. 

Pay attention to your dreams. Mine have been really amazing the last couple of days. In one I dreamed I was pregnant and in my late 50’s. I was wondering if I really wanted to have another child or not and what I was going to do. I haven’t had a pregnancy dream in many years.

Pisces MOON is the best time for lucid dreaming.Do pay attention to what you were dreaming about. Also, the whole day may seem like one big waking dream. 

Diana and Endymion, 1901 by Edward Poynter (c) Manchester City Galleries; Supplied by The Public Catalogue Foundation

In the TAROT The card of the MOON #18 is associated with the Sign of PISCES.

This is the dark side of the Moon The mysterious unconscious where our inner fears and karmic latent urges and desires lay. The Moon symbolizes the “Dark Night of the Soul” time. It can be a deeply disturbing sense of loss regret sadness the “end of the line.” depression martyrdom self-harm or blaming others denial addictions and escapism. It is the place where we need to surrender our egos to the spirit and to have faith and trust that there is indeed light at the end of the tunnel.

The Pisces moon Scorpio sun trine is expansive and deep.

Don’t be surprised if tears well up easily. I have been teary almost every night since Jupiter entered Scorpio.

The collective emotional baggage cleanup is beginning to get deeper and more intense. It may be very uncomfortable to face your shadows. But this is where we need to be brave and honest while Saturn in Sagittarius is still bearing down on the Galactic Center.

MOON conjuncts NEPTUNE in PISCES in the afternoon

The moon and its governing planet amplify each other.

This is the day when you will feel like you are wearing those rose colored glasses. Everywhere you look things can seem divine. You are prone to projecting fairy dust and beauty onto everything you see. Which is quite lovely but may also be a total illusion. 

The rose-colored glasses may be quite forcibly removed from your face later this week on November 2nd GMT as SATURN in SAGITTARIUS squares CHIRON in PISCES @ 24+ degrees.

The tension is still on from all of the intense energies we’ve been under. If you are feeling exhausted let yourself rest. Do meditate on this day. Spend time trying to clear old emotional ties and undo knots that have accumulated in your energy field.

We are also at the witches New year which is Halloween. In the Northern Hemisphere this is the natural end of the year. 

Things will be emotional on Halloween because of the Pisces Moon energy for most of the pre-witching hour. 

There is a lot of action from the planet MERCURY  and Venus later in the week and a FULL MOON in grounding TAURUS on the 3rd/4th. More about that later.

The veils between the worlds open.

Halloween, known as Samhain is the ancient pagan New Year. This is the night when the veil between the worlds is the thinnest. Traditionally this is the night when you honor your departed ancestors, with ceremony, candles and prayers. It is the day to hold a seance. Set up an altar to honor those you loved and who loved you. Your physical DNA and the emotional and physical traits and talents of your ancestors actually lives in you.

Samhain rituals, wicca, pagan, Tara Greene

SAMHAIN SHAMANIC RITUALS

Bring out your crystals and special blackened water bowls to scry with.  Go visit your dead ancestors at cemeteries. If you have lost loved ones in the past year, ask these spirits to comfort, guide and support you. This would be the best day to tune into David Bowie, or Prince, two of the most beloved musicians who passed on in 2016. I will be channeling both of them tonight and will report afterward.

It’s also good to take a nature walk. Samhain rituals include bonfires, dancing, feasting and building altars to honor the ancestors. Some pagans bake special loaves of bread and leave offerings to the spirits outside their homes. 

In some Wiccan traditions, the Goddess has become the Crone.

samhain crone, Halloween, tara Greene

She is the Old One,  the wise woman who we turn to for wisdom from experience. Her counterpart is The God,the Horned One, the great antlered stag, the very masculine, sexually potent God of the Hunt. We honor the two at this time.

Bring in symbols of the God, antlers, acorns, pine cones, phallic symbols and symbols of the Goddess, red flowers, cups, and pomegranates.  If your tradition honors a specific pair of male and female deities, feel free to substitute their names in this ritual wherever it says God or Goddess.

Horned God, Halloween wicca, Tara Greene

Horned God, the Goddess’s Consort

Cast a circle to mark a sacred space. Before starting the ceremony, place three sheaves of corn or wheat around the ritual space. Place a statue or other images of the God and Goddess at the center of your altar. Around the statues, place five candles, red and black for the darker aspect of the Goddess, and green and brown to symbolize the wild male God and nature, and white for the central hearth and home and the New Year.

Near the center of the altar  put a plate of dark bread, for each person present, and cup of wine or cider.  The youngest person present acts as the Handmaiden, and the oldest as the High Priest (HP) or High Priestess.  If you’re performing this rite on your own, act both parts.  The H.Ps. lights the red and black candles, and says:

“We light the candles  in honor of the Goddess.
She is Maiden Mother and Crone.”

Next, the H.P. lights the brown and green candles, saying:

“We light the candles in honor of the masculine God.
He is wild and fertile and tonight we honor him as the Horned God.”

The Handmaiden takes the bread and walks the circle, offering each person a piece.  The H.P. says

“May the blessings of the Goddess be upon you.” The cup of wine or cider is passed around, and each person sips from the cup. As they do, the H.P. says:May the blessings of the God be upon you.”

The Handmaiden then lights the fifth candle, for the hearth, saying:

“This candle is lit in honor of hearth and home.
The mother and father, the Goddess and the God
watch over us tonight as we honor them.”

The High Priestess says

“We light the candles for the most powerful Goddess
and her mighty horned consort, the God,
and for the safety of hearth and home.
On this, night of Samhain, the Goddess is a wise Crone,
and the God is a wild stag, and we honor and celebrate their Union.”

The H.P. states

“This is the time between the worlds, a time of life and death.
This is a night unlike any other night.
Ancient ones, we ask for your blessings.
Goddess, great Crone, mother of all life,
we thank you for your wisdom.
Horned One, master of the wild hunt, keeper of the forest,
we thank you for all that you provide.”

Everyone can give thanks in their own way. Place offerings to them on the altar.

Once all the offerings have been made, and thanks given, consider the gifts that the gods have given you over the past year, and show your gratitude. Meditate on the new beginnings of Samhain. State new intentions for the New Year.

As this is also a New Moon in Scorpio the energy is stronger than normal on this day. 

The Scorpio Moon sextiles Pluto in Capricorn trines Chiron in Pisces inconjuncts Uranus in Aries and sextiles Mars in Capricorn. 

Scorpio is ruled by both Mars and Pluto as co-rulers so there easy access to this Moon deepens our ease of access to the Depth, the Underworld, Pluto’s realm, the realm of the Dead. This is the fertile land of the ghosts, ancestors, and our spirit guides. 

The inconjunct of Scorpio Moon to Uranus  brings in an element of surprise and chaos. Ride the electric current of Uranus energy to the farthest out unbeknownst worlds. This is inventive, pioneering, brave new horizons. 

The MOON is VOID of COURSE at 7:44 pm PDT/10:44 pm EDT/ Nov. 1st @ 2:44 a.m.

November 1st is the Day of the Dead in Mexico 

SUN trines NEPTUNE in PISCES  in the wee hours. I would stay up late Halloween night to really tap into this energy as it is super powerful and may blow your mind. Stay in the void the place of total creativity and potential.

I will be doing ceremony ritual and meditating, remembering my mother and father and ther ancestors. Sending you many blessings for the New Year.

Samhain by Lisa Thiel

Dark space, Scorpio New Moon Astrology

October 30 SCORPIO NEW MOON @ 10:38 am PDT/ 1:38 pm EDT/ 5:38 pm GMT is the darkest Moon. Scorpio is associated with the time of death and darkness in the Northern Hemisphere. It is the ancient pagan/ witches New Year on Halloween. November 1st being the New Year’s day. These ancient festivals are older than time.  Scorpio is associated with the most feared Tarot card in the deck. The DEATH card. All traditional Tarot decks show The Grim Reaper in its symbolism. The Grim Reaper is planet SATURN. Scorpio is ruled by MARS and PLUTO in modern astrology and they are still conjoined in Capricorn the seat of corporate, wordly power.

This is the last New Moon before the U.S. election and for one of the candidates the Grim reaper will come for them. The Fear of death stems from the ego, which by its nature is an illusion. Fear of change, fear of the unknown, stem from the ego which falsely thinks it is separate from our immortal souls. The more we are in our unconscious ego state the more we fear real change. Scorpio is a Fixed water sign.

Mystics talk about needing to die and be reborn within ourselves to achieve enlightenment. This death is a metaphorical and very real ego-death, which once experienced changes our ground of being totally and we are reborn in life. This rebirth is not dependent on religion or a belief in God but stems from a direct experience which changes our consciousness.  Death is not to be feared.

Scorpio New Moon Astrology Tara Greene

The Lady of Shalott by John Atkinson Grimshaw  1875

Scorpio takes us into the deep muddy waters where the soul’s roots must grow to blossom like a lotus. Scorpio is the shadowlands, the unknown, avoided, disowned, darkness within each one of us. These regions of the psyche by being ignored and denied react within us with the need for power, control, secrecy, sex, money, and projections. These most fertile parts of our soul making, need to be accessed and transformed through the alchemy of deep inner psychological or shamanic work, bravely facing our demons, anger or feelings of rejection  and turning this lead, the dark, heavy, depressed parts of ourselves into Gold, the Light of spirit.

MERCURY in SCORPIO conjunct the SUN and MOON helps us access the hidden emotions and karmic residue. NEPTUNE in PISCES trine the three helps us to have compassion with ourselves and for those who have rejected us and who were blind to our natural inner light. These are present day and past life patterns and memories which we need to transform, so that new life may be reborn. 

SATURN the Grim Reaper is at 14+ SAGITTARIUS conjunct to the Great Attractor and Venus at 15+ degrees. This union of death with the irresistible power of attraction to the dark void which is Love, is an archetypal symbol of rebirth like the phoenix; of Light and dark, faith, inspiration and optimism no matter how dark the times seem.  SATURN  and VENUS square the Moon’s Nodes Saturn  and VENUS square the Moon’s Nodes

SATURN  and VENUS square the Moon’s North Node conjunct Psyche square Neptune

These are karmic fateful points in the outer and inner world’s cyclic development. Psyche is the asteroid symbolizing the soul. Psyche is the root of psychology. The North NODE points us to soul work, deep, into the void of the unknown, the death and rebirth show. We must choose to be responsible, mature, and to move from a place of love not fear, to what attracts us and not by what we are repelled by.  Like moths attracted to the flame of spirit, higher education and humor, all Sagittarius traits.

PLUTO is in an approaching square by JUPITER in LIBRA

This is another Cardinal Cross which will be exact November 24 which is U.S. Thanksgiving at 15+ degrees, as were the 2015 Cardinal Crosses.

JUPITER in LIBRA is the peacemaker, the go-between, and social conduit. Jupiter can amplify whatever it touches. We can be too polarized between self and other which we can all feel these days. It can be too hard to decide anything or come to some middle ground, win-win situation. Jupiter in LIBRA is karmic Justice. We are

Jupiter in LIBRA is karmic Justice. We are in the scales and being tested. PLUTO is riches on the deepest soul levels. On unconscious levels, Pluto manifests as pure greed for power at any cost. Jupiter-Pluto in aspect is great for manifestation, but that depends on what the motivation is. We can manifest whatever we wish. We must learn to use that awesome power wisely and justly.

This is also very powerful sexual energy. Kundalini rising! If you do have an awe partner pratice Tantric sexuality, sex as a path to the Divine by controlling yoru sexual energy. 

PLUTO and MARS are conjunct in CAPRICORN and square Uranus, ERIS and CERES

The heavy Mars-Pluto aspects are about to separate which is good as the election is only 9 days away.  The forces of radical change are prevailing, one way or another. CERES the Great Mother, the earth reminds us to be ECO WARRIORS, to fight to protect Mother earth as the indigenous peoples are doing in Dakota right now.  A number of men took solemn vows to attest to this at the 1,000 Goddess Gathering in Washington D.C. I attended on October 21.

Chiron in PISCES is squaring MARS in Capricorn

Rather than integrate our unowned shadows, we project them onto others-Muslims, Mexicans, women, which causes more pain and suffering. We are all one in the great ocean of consciousness, no one or thing is separate from Source. The farther one ventures into the hard realities of power the farther one can get from the source. Tears will fall, denial will be high, many will respond violently. Psychic protection and boundaries will be necessary.

LILITH at 18 SCORPIO is trine CHIRON in PISCES

The independent woman, is being helped by women working together for the greater good of women as a whole. Compassion reigns. This favours Hillary Clinton.

The symbol for 8 degrees SCORPIO by John Sandbach

“A woman in a hot bath. Outside, snow is falling. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Receptive

There is an ability here to create one’s own atmosphere around the self and to be so thoroughly immersed in it that one becomes impervious to any harsh or unfriendly conditions in the outer world.  {Pisces tendency} There is a need, though, to question one’s motives for ignoring outer reality. At its highest,the energy can be used to protect oneself so that creative and spiritual agendas can be carried out. But if this way of being is not serving a higher purpose and is depended on to the point of becoming a crutch, it will result in stagnation, and eventually fail.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A retarded man with white hair. He has an angelic countenance.” This degree is beyond intellect, and even if the person who has a planet in this degree is intellectual they will be detached from such processes, in such a way that the narrowness and biases that create intellectual limits are transcended. Sometimes it will disturb other people that the person of this degree knows things automatically and directly, even when they have had no prior exposure to them, or haven’t taken in much information about them. This ability to directly access truth can be used to nurture others, and help them to realize the existence of other realms of reality.

A bunch of iron keys. (Chandra Symbol). We have all that we need to open all doors and when we realize this we come into a synthesis of our innocence and our wisdom.

Fulfillment degree: Taurus 19. A bottle of gold dust gathered from many places over many years. (Omega Symbol). Meaning extracted from many different experiences and sources is synthesized together and creates an inner assurance that is joyful, nurturing, and warm, and which protects us from the hostile forces of life.” This degree is opposite to Lilith.

At this very dark New Moon make sure you set aside time to do serious ceremony. This is symbolically the end of the year. Most of our Universe is dark, unknown, filled with invisible stuffs. The dark is our natural birth place, we are created in the dark of our mother’s wombs, it’s where we are feelings of being safe, hearing our mother’s heartbeat and knowing we are connected to the source in physical reality. The dark is a place of transcendence. Let go of old notions, let your ego justifications go, let it all slip away. Have faith that you will survive and thrive. There is nothing to fear.

The challenge is to tell the truth, be honest and create intimacy, not fantasy projections

October overview. Deja Voodoo Astrology by Tara Greene

OCTOBERVIEW 

Those pesky CARDINAL squares between URANUS in ARIES and PLUTO in CAPRICORN are giving  us some DEJA Voodoo action again. 

Witch Voodoo Halloween

Yes, URANUS, the planet of chaos, radical reform, weirdness, innovation, freedom and a whole new ballgame is Retrograde and aligning with PLUTO, Lord of Death, Rebirth Sex, Money and Power, Recycling and control again in a wide, 8-degree applying angle square.

The Cha-Cha-Cha-Cha-Changes that were ushered in for better and worse since 2012 are back for an encore, or to underscore the fact that we need to be pushed to the limit, one more time.

Racial tensions have exploded  lately as cops keep killing unarmed blacks all over the U.S. #Blacklivesmatter. The URANUS PLUTO conjunctions in mid-Virgo in the late 60’s opposite SATURN in PISCES were synchronous with the race riots in Detroit back then. I had thought that progress had been made, that especially with the first black President that racial equality had been reached. Instead, it appears that having a black president has brought out the worst racial shadows about blacks, or whoever one fears; Muslims, refugees, gays, pro-choice women, etc. 

October 12 JUPITER in LIBRA begins to square PLUTO this tension will lead up to NOV, 12 when Jupiter also begins to oppose URANUS. The Jupiter-Pluto square is exact, in November 24 and the Jupiter-Uranus opposition is December 26.

Venus square Pluto, 911, Lilith, Juno

It’s the 15th anniversary of 9/11. That’s half a Saturn cycle.

“And the hits just keep on coming” which sounds like a radio DJ from pop AM radio I know, but it’s true. 

Yesterday was the last exact Saturn square Neptune aspect, the reality versus the illusion. It’s not over until the 2 planets separate, this is when NEPTUNE stops Retrograding on NOVEMBER 20th and they are more than 7 degrees apart. Keep working out those illusions till then. 

Mourners and others are gathered at the Pentagon remembering and crying.  I am so sad that thousands of innocent people had to die and the effects of their loss will always be felt for the rest of their lives by families, friends, and colleagues. But the cause is an illusion. 9/11 was a set up between the U.S. secret government, the CIA, Isreal, the Saudi’s, and who knows who else to destabilize the world. I always knew intuitively that it was a setup as I watched the second plane hit the World Trade Cente. My spirit guides literally punched me in the stomach to wake me up and delivered that message to me.

The chart for then and now is very telling as well.  Yes and VENUS squares PLUTO today too, a very powerful aspect. Love and Death. This means Love needs to be balanced with our deepest darkest secrets and shadows. Combined with yesterday’s powerful Saturn-Neptune square taking back projections is paramount.

911, and now, Astrology Tara Greene

Under a CAPRICORN MOON, the Venus/Pluto aspect affected our dreams, and unconscious, as PLUTO’S crib is the Underworld, the world of the shades or shadows as Carl Jung named it.  My dreams were so intense last night. How were yours?

This is the realm of the ancestors, ghosts, spirits, and daemons. This underworld may be quite scary to Venus in LIBRA, who may live life,like a proverbial surfer, too much on the surface of things. VENUS in LIBRA is always the perfect hostess, trophy wife, smoother of life’s wrinkles, ironer out of problems. 

ironing out the problems Tara Greene

SATURN is now almost conjunct to where PLUTO was at 9/11 a 12+ degrees SAGITTARIUS and opposite to where SATURN was at 14+ degrees GEMINI. Both are closely conjunct to the GREAT ATTRACTOR, the importance of which we are still trying to ascertain. This is clearly a half way cycle stopping point. SATURN crosses these degrees again between October 13-November 4th.  This is during Halloween, Samhain and the Day of the Dead. Certain ghosts may rise again for sure.

VENUS is actually transiting the Ascendant,also affecting the Midheaven, IC and DC -all the angles of the 9/11 chart, where Mercury and Jupiter were at that time. 

PLUTO,Lord of DEATH and rebirth, is power, sex, money, control, secrets, riches, manipulation, the PLUTOCRACY. VENUS in LIBRA rules communications, it is an air sign. PLUTO can unearth, long held secrets from the cabal. 

On a more personal level. VENUS is in her own sign and very strong now. Libra is a bridging sign. PLUTO can bring the Divine FEMININE in contact with her own dark chthonic powers. This is Her shadow side, Persephone, LILITH, HEKATE, KALI; all the dark and denied Goddesses. THIS IS a very good thing.

LILITH and JUNO, the FEMININE form of Genius are exactly conjunct at 12+ degrees SCORPIO now and sextiling PLUTO, THIS IS a very good thing. They are forming a YOD to VESTA and SATURN at 10-14 degrees GEMINI from the 9/11 chart. I will write about Juno Vesta separately. Isn’t it totally fascinating how all of this works?

If you have any planets at 10-14 degrees GEMINI use the deepest intuitive faculties you have now to uncover secrets that you thought were long past their due date. 

PLUTO and the MOON  are conjunct today. Use this monthly cycle to connect intuitively with these dark Goddess aspects, they were the original rulers of the Underworld, and are sharing power with Pluto to bring us to our soul’s riches. Our inner wealth, beauty, and creativity are where all outward creativity begins. 

Cappy Goat Moon squares VENUS tying it all together.

Moon will later Trine the VIRGIN QUEEN SUN 

Shine the light from the dark to illuminate your ego consciousness.

MOON trines MERCURY @ 10:37 pm PDT/ Sept 12 @ 1:37 am EDT/ 4:37 am GMT. 

DO Pay attention to your dreams tonight.

Heads up MERCURY RETRO. in VIRGO squares MARS in SAGITTARIUS SEPT. 12 

This may be an irritable “I don’t like Mondays” day. This Mercury Retro because it is in VIRGO is particularly dastardly. Expect tempers to blow, but the fires will be out quickly as Mars in Sagittarius moves on fast to bigger adventures.

Out of the broom closet,witches

I am officially and publicly out of the broom closet.Yes I am a witch, a white witch. I proclaimed this on TV yesterday. Halloween or Samhain is an ancient Pagan/wiccan celebration honoring the close of the old year and it is New Years. It is the day when the veil between the worlds is thinnest. NOvember 1 is All saints Day or the Day of the dead. I was also initiated as a Green Witch by Susun Weed at her goat farm in Woodstock New York in 1987. 

witch, hag, Tara Greene spiritual psychic

Archetypal wicked witch, hag, crone.

Wicca or wiccan is a modern term for ancient pagan spiritual beliefs which honoured the Great Mother the earth and the Divine Feminine and  participated in the turning of the wheel of the year.It is a non-hierarchical, pantheistic religion. Although I hesitate to use the term religion as we associate it with organized Patriarchal religions. 

The Catholic Inquisition which initially was against all heretics, the Cathars in particular, terrified pagans for hundreds of years.  The Grand Inquisitors ruled from 1200 until the mid-19th century. The Malleus Maleficarum written in 1486 stated that witchcraft was to blame for bad weather. This charge was levelled mainly at women, which according to this text “all witchcraft comes from carnal lust which is in women insatiable”. 

Over the course of 300 years in Europe estimates as high as nine million people were accused of witchcraft, 80% were women were burned at the stake, sadistically tortured and their children were forced to watch them burn. This was the women’s Holocaust. This was worse than Hitler and the Catholic Church is wholly to blame for it. 

 

I remember being burned at the stake and the  Jesuit Priests who convicted me. The one who convicted me in the past turned out to be my ex-husband in this life I later discovered. One re-appeared as one of the realtors who tricked me into selling my house out from under me years ago. It’s a long story,and is part of the book I am still writing.

HOLOTROPIC BREATHWORK

I experienced a full memory of this past life during a Holotropic Breathwork workshop years ago. Holotropic Breathwork was invented by Dr. Stanislav Grof following his experiments using LSD in psychiatry in the 70’s. It is a breathing and music aided psych0-spiritual healing journey which induces a non-ordinary state of reality experience. Most people remember their birth and pre-births in this state. Some people remember death experiences. A number of women at this specific workshop stated that they also remembered their past life as witches and being tortured. 

I had been very angry at the Priest who sentenced me. I cursed him for his ignorance and for so wickedly and arrogantly destroying my life as well as the other women who were also being tortured. My heart broke to leave my husband and children. This was not the first time that I had been serving The Goddess and my life had been destroyed because of it. I also remember being a High Priestess of the Goddess in Greece years ago and having that be overrun an destroyed by  hostile invaders.

Those 7 million women who had been tortured in the past have  come back into this life to take back their power and to reinstate the worship of the Great Mother. That is why the pagan Goddess worshipping communities, websites, workshops, and courses are increasingly  popular now. I am working on launching Priestess workshops and online Moon lodges now.

In the West where women are largely well-educated, relatively good wage-earners, and have freedom {to some extent{ within this culture, we all now must proudly announce where our ancient soul reverence belongs.

It used to be shameful to be called a witch. The stereotype of the old hag, or crone, depicted as an ugly old woman with hooked nose and warts and wild hair, and the fairy tales about the Wicked Old Witch, eating children are a gross misrepresentation and total cultural propaganda.

Elder women were wise women and healers. whose knowledge as midwives and who also attended to those dying were respected and honoured. They had status. 

In a culture which worships youth and not the status of being a wise elder, women need to also embrace this aspect. We are all inevitably ageing. The masculine type of pursuit of immortality is rooted in the false belief that we are our bodies and not immortal souls. The word crone is equated with witches and it carries the same popular stigma. I like the term Crone because it simply means chronos, Time, seniority, maturity, and implies wisdom from living so long.

In my mind if you are older but not wiser that is why you would want to avoid being called a crone and not acknowledged for your wisdom. Language is also empowering. A  large part of Feminism  pointed out that reframing and respelling, sounds Magical doesn’t it?  changes the meaning of a word.

Let’s Re-Spell this.

I put forward that the word CHRONE spelled with the additional H be used proudly to represent a woman past -menopause. That could be any age from the late 40’s. It means a wise women, an elder worthy of respect and honored for her experience and wisdom. We can revere aging as beautiful.

I had been saying I am ready to fully embrace my own power. I was sitting in front of the TV Tuesday night when a commercial came on for the CTV Morning show called Canada A.M. In my mind I said I want to be on that show. I stated that intention clearly.

Wed. October 28, I get an email from a producer at Canada A.M. asking me if I would be interested in being on the show for Halloween talking about wicca and witches. They gave me some homework to do to help them prep videos which I was happy to do.  watch the video below.

THE VEIL BETWEEN THE WORLDS 

Get in touch with your past lives tonight when the veil between the worlds is thinnest. Do a breathing exercise and meditation tonight. Bring out your crystals, create a sacred space. Set up a bowl made of dark opaque material to scry on. This is the night of connecting with your dead ancestors for their wisdom and guidance.

I will be out at an event this evening at SOHO HOUSE doing readings tonight.  Then I will be home doing ceremony and scrying.

STRANGE BREW-Cream 1967  

 

 

Do you believe in Magic? Sun Trine Neptune

Under a dualistic Gemini Moon which is pretty active as befits Gemini’s windy energy.

Moon will confound Pluto in Capricorn in EDT in a quincunx early in the a.m.

and will square Jupiter, Chiron, Venus and Mars in Virgo

You need to get your head out of the clouds and down to earth. I know life is so full of so many choices and so many ideas, things, distractions. The over-analysis, and the fear of commitment needs to be grounded in simple, practical, action baby footsteps.  

Act on your ideas, make them real, they have to work, to live. Just do it.

SCORPIO SUN TRINES NEPTUNE at 7 degrees Pisces/Virgo.

Do you believe in Magic? 

This is a Grand Trine if you have planets at 7 degrees or within 5 degrees + or – of Pisces, Virgo and Cancer.

The Sun is the Greek God Apollo who every day drove his Sun chariot across the sky. Apollo was He was the God of Prophecy, Healing, Music, Archery and Light. Here is a modern version of the  Sun God in our culture. 

Apollo,Sun, Astrology Tara Greene apollon-01

Neptune is the Roman God of the Oceans, called Poseidon in Greek mythology. Neptune rule spirituality, endings, the ocean, the dreamworld, illusions, delusions, twin flames.  We know him from the Disney movies The Little Mermaid. 

Neptune Art Astrology Tara Greene

The Scorpio Sun shines its  light into the darkness. We can’t see the light or the stars without darkness. In duality, which is what Gemini symbolizes this is the reality we live in on the earth plane.

New Agers are often too much all light and Love and set themselves up for a terrible fall as it is imperative to process one’s shadow, by recognizing it, owning it, loving it and freeing yourself from it so that then you are able to be in the Light, to return to the Light, our source, That is our soul’s purpose. 

That is what Neptune governs, the soul, as does Scorpio. All the water signs are emotions, and emotions are the karmic glue which keep us in this earthly realm. Cancer is the soul coming from source into birth. Scorpio is the Soul touching its true nature and growing and transcending its heavy emotions. Pisces is the Source from which we all come, the nothing and the everything. It is the MAGIC itself. 

Scorpio Sun has us dig deeper into our souls to discover we already are Magical dreamers..

It’s big imaginative creative psychic and spiritual dreamy day.

How Scorpio deep is your desire to manifest your sacred spiritual dream? 

In the Indigenous Medicine teachings I received there are three types of dreams,

  1. is a personal dream, which is self-explanatory,
  2. there is a sacred dream. This is the one you dreamed of from spirit which is how you manifested here on earth.That dream contains the gifts and ideals you wish to create on your earthly walk.
  3. 3. There is the collective dream. This dream ties your personal and collective dream into a larger consciousness or collective dream of all the people. What do we all collective dream of the most? Peace on earth?  Enjoying love and abundance? Heaven on earth?

Scorpio Sun will clarify

Those Neptunian illusions, delusions and deceptions in all areas. In the political more nefarious scheming, plotting, lying, pay-offs will come to the surface under Scorpio’s laser vision detective researching nature. New sources of energy will be made available, through water. 

Use this energy in a Magical ceremony at 2:06 pm PDT/ 5:06 pm EDT.

Friday is Venus’s day and Neptune is her “higher octave.” so this would be good for soul mate attraction. Simply love yourself and affirm that you already have the Beloved within.  Use copper Venus’s metal, roses, sweet perfume, apples. 

And do pay attention to your dreams. As this occurs on the day before All Hallows Eve October 31st when the veil is thinnest between the worlds this is very powerful magic energy indeed. All sign can feel it. It may make you feel quite ungrounded as well.
