Have a Happy Festivus, Saturn is in Sagittarius


Saturn is now in Sagittarius,

We are not buying gifts at Wall Mart or Toy’s R US,

We are going to eat, bitch and be contrarious,

Then wrestle till the household head is pinned victorius,

It will be mucho glorius.

Hey I will tell you the storyous.

Birthed from a virgin episode of Seinfeld called “The Strike,” Frank Costanza, actor Jerry Stiller, Ben’s father in real life, George’s dad in the show, tells Kramer that Festivus is  a non-commercial way to opt out of Christmas and for those who are non-Christian to celebrate in their own way.

We did Festivus last year, and Christmas and Hanukkah and Tibetan Buddhist, pagan and indigenous ceremonies. We love festivities.

Fetsivus Celebration Tara Greene Toronto

Celebrating Festivus in 2013

Especially with Saturn in Sagittarius. HA HA HA everyone. Festivus sounds like it is a mnemonic for this rare planetary event. It only happens once every 29 years.  Festivus seems like a very Saturnian event. Its is humbug like. People shout each other down.  Rant and bitch at each other and wrestle. Saturn always likes to be the boss.  Read the how to’s and tell me what you think.


In the episode, the tradition of Festivus begins with an aluminum pole. Dan O’Keefe was the creator of the original practice.  During Festivus, the pole is displayed unadorned. According to George Castanza’s father, “I find tinsel distracting.” Be creative, we lit our Festius pole up last year, in photo above. Make up your own Festivus pole dances.


The on-air meal was shown to be some sort of MEATLOAF and spaghetti with red sauce. The original holiday dinner in the O’Keefe household featured turkey or ham followed by a Pepperidge Farm cake decorated with M & M’s candy. In the TV episode, no alcohol is served at dinner.  I’ll leave that to your discretion. Feel free to improvise. I doubt Gordon Ramsay will be dropping in on you.

The Airing of Grievances or the Bitching Match

The celebration of Festivus begins with the “Airing of Grievances” or the bitching match which takes place immediately after the Festivus dinner has been served. Each person must bitch at the others, and the world about how they have been let down, victimized and disappointed in the past year.  Airing your grievance is healthier than holding them in where they Fester, That’s another Holiday. Festerus.


After the meal,The Feats of Strength are the final tradition observed. The head of the household selects one person  and challenges that person to a wrestling match.  Tradition states that Festivus is not over until the head of the household is pinned in a wrestling match.  Failing to pin the head of the household results in Festivus continuing until such requirement is met. It can go on and on if you wish!

In a CNN segment on the origins of Festivus, Dan O’Keefe spoke about the real-life origins of Festivus. O’Keefe’s father, who originated some of the now-recognized Festivus traditions, used a clock, not an aluminum pole. O’Keefe told CNN: “The real symbol of the holiday was a clock that my dad put in a bag and nailed to the wall every year…I don’t know why, I don’t know what it means, he would never tell me. He would always say, ‘That’s not for you to know.

Interesting that SATURN is FATHER TIME represented by a clock, which was bagged and nailed to a wall in a form of masked crucifixion or some other twisted rite.

What do you think?

How to connect mind, body and soul

Dec 22 One day after one of the most powerful Solstice’s ever with all those  razamatazz blingy extras going on. I’ve mentioned them enuf, you oughta know all that jazz by now. Right?

The Sun appears to stand still for 3 days. So really we could consider this a 3 day event.

Monday the MOON’S Day 

The Moon symbolizes your moods, emotions and feelings. The Moon physically we know this,it’s scientific swells the tides of the oceans on Full Moons and as we are 70% water, exactly the same proportions as the earth, so ipso facto. The Moon affects everyone’s emotions. At Full Moon high tide emotions at a New Moon like now, 3 days of introverted feelings. The MOON also governs the people in general.

Today Moon in Capricorn makes it easy to connect the dots between mind-body  and soul.

body mind soul Tara Greene

Capricorn moon is emotions rooted in body wisdom and knowledge. The body knows more than the head does. In the Tarot, Capricorn is THE DEVIL #15. 

The Moon= feelings, conjunct MERCURY- the head, analysis, intelligence, thinking, communications.   In the Tarot Mercury is the MAGICIAN #1

Moon squares URANUS – planet of chaos, liberation, freedom from the mind, from being led around by your ego. The mind governs purely physical things only.

Moon conjuncts PLUTO, symbol of the soul, the unconscious, the shadow, We can connect to our Souls, aka out Guardian angels, our infinite selves.

Moon conjuncts VENUS, symbol of love, amore, amour,women, beauty. relationships, values. We can connect to our hearts, to self- love and loving others. To honor the beauty in ourselves, to value relationships. Tibetan Buddhist teachings state that the heart is the  central most important organ of the body.In the Tarot Venus is the EMPRESS #3


throughout the day focussing your attention on the sensation of listening to the body first, then as if tuning into different radio channels. Then listen to station HEAD, ALL EGO, chattering away, about me, me, me, without being attached to it. IF you can accomplish that for a few seconds your entire world can change.

Intentionally change the channel to HEART,Radio LUV, and listen to your hearts yearnings, feel that out and see if you like the way the world seems when tuned in through the heart.

Yes touch that dial and tune into your SOUL, where is it? It is all of you, it is within you and outside of you. It is outside of time. Trust that you can listen to and feel  you soul;s desires. 


Like the spirit of Christmas or the spirit of the team?

SPIRIT comes flying in just like Santa Claus on December 23 when Saturn- lord of the solid and very real,planet of tradition, flies into the inspiring spiritual fires of SAGITTARIUS at 8:34 am PST/11:34 am est. till June 15 2015 when Saturn Retrogrades back to the last most critical degrees of Scorpio until September 17. Saturn will stay in Sagittarius until 2017.

HAPPY HOLIDAY SEASON however you celebrate it

I will be taking a Holiday Break and perhaps writing a card of the day. I am truly needing to focus on my book. Don’t you want to read my book, redesigning my website and organizing my workshops for 2015 and beyond. 

I will also be starting a subscription to the blog. It takes a lot of work, which I love to do. I am needing to make a shift in my life too.

You can always opt to DONATE if you appreciate this blog to support all the hours i put into it. http://www.taratarot.com/id78.html


Yesterdays Cardinal Cross saw VENUS And PLUTO transiting opposite my natal Uranus in Cancer and squared by Uranus in Aries which is also exactly opposite my Natal Saturn. Plus Neptune is sitting right on my North Node in Pisces and is squaring my Sagittarius Sun which Saturn is about to get very close to. But I am very happy about that. Finally able to get really disciplined and finish things up.

How are your transits going?

I am finishing up all my 2015 predictions now they will be posted shortly..Yes Robert Pattinson, Canada, US, etc etc
