Mercury Retrograde tara Greene Toronto This indicates a time for tuning into our bodies to find out where we have stored pain, knots and energy blocks from PTSD’s and to let our bodies wisdom tell us what it needs and how to heal it. Our bodies are very wise and record everything we have experienced since before our births.

Dream work is also augmented at this time from Chiron in Pisces energy. Traditionally sick patients were sent to the Dream Temples of Asclepius to receive their healing dreams.  A similar opportunity is available during this Mercury Retrograde. Dreams always reveal the hidden soul secrets. Find out what your dreams mean. Book a dream reading with me. http://www.taratarot.com

Caitlyn Jenner transgender Astrology

Bruce Jenner, Olympian athlete revealed his new transgender name and identity June 1, 2015. A new twitter account appeared @ 12:17 pm  EDT. That’s a public birth announcement and a birth chart. I was writing a Bruce Jenner birth chart article, which I will still do, post and compare. Let’s investigate who she/he is through her astrology chart.

bruce Jenner-Caitlyn Jenner

I’ve also used Asteroids Eros #433,Hekate #100, Pandora #55, Loke #4862, and #25456 Caitlinmann

Caitlyn Jenner astrology Tara Greene

 

 Cailyn Jenner is a GEMINI of course, what else could she be? Ruled by planet Mercury, she is, like the planet, a hermaphrodite, an androgynous, twin-sexed being. Gemini is the sign of the trickster who always keep us guessing, messes with our minds and never wants to grow up or get old. Mercury is communications, analysis, the media, loves to talk, and is mutable, ever changing, like the wind.

The Sun symbol of the self/identity/ego is conjunct to Fixed Star Aldebaran at 9 degrees + Gemini. This is one of the Four Main Archangel Stars, Michael. It means the Eye of God, or Stella Dominatrix. With a Mars like nature, this Star confers, firmness, courage, integrity and strength all of which Caitlyn has had to use.  

The 11th degree Sun in the Sabian symbols means, “newly opened lands offer the pioneer new opportunities for experience.” The meaning is “we find the human being essentially engaged in his {or her} personal and particular struggle for full and effective individualization.” Perfect. 

Caitlyn’s Gemini Sun is ruled by MERCURY RETROGRADE where it is the most powerful according to Ancient Indian Vedic astrology. Mercury Retrograde natal peeps always “think differently, outside the box” whether that box is gender, or Wheaties. Caitlyn loves to talk and to play, with people’s minds and ideas about who she/he is. There may be many replays or rewinds in this identity journey. Caitlyn is a karmic re-identity.

Caitlyn’s Moon is in Scorpio at the next to last most critical degree. The Moon is the most feminine of all the planets. Indicating feelings, intuition, moods, Caitlyn/Bruce’s own mother. The Moon indicates our deepest emotional needs for security and home. Scorpio Moons always speaks of Death, Transformation, and Rebirth. Scorpio Moon is Fixed, obsessive, all about power, control, deep desires which have been hidden, sex, and charisma. Her Moon and emotional needs are heavy.

The MOON is conjunct Retrograde Saturn at zero degrees Sagittarius. The Moon/Saturn conjunction in two signs shows another dual quality to Caitlyn. This aspect gives emotional suppression and problems from childhood, with a staunch Saturn abiding to honor and keeping a stiff upper lip.

SATURN in SAGITTARIUS is the teacher. There are karmic Retrograde secrets that have been hidden in Bruce/Cailyn’s past. Saturn Retrograde indicates the past/present life karma of Bruce Jenner the Sagittarius, Olympic Athlete, the inspiring breakfast of Champions hero. Saturn Retrograde conjunct the Moon literally symbolizes past life memories, especially those tied to being a woman, a mother, and a difficult birth or death or both in past lives. Saturn rules maturity, seniors, Caitlyn is born at 65 years old and is most like a post-menopausal female.

The Moon rules C.’s Cancer Ascendant with VENUS the Goddess of women, beauty, wealth, luxury, relationships and flirting in the 12th house of the unconscious, past lives and self-undoing, on the Ascendant.VENUS is the prow of the ship. You will see Caitlyn’s beauty, vanity and wealth  first and foremost. Venus in Cancer is very emotional, sensitive, and sentimental with family being everything. Didn’t Jon Stewart nail it perfectly? Of course you are going to be known for your appearance. Venus is square to Uranus indicating the technological basis of the beauty and the revolutionary new  image. Caitlyn’s beauty is also induces shock.

SATURN rules Capricorn which is C’s Descendant where she/he interrelates with all others. There is something strictly business going on here. Yes Caitlyn’s transformation will make the already wealthy = $100 million smackers Jenner even wealthier.

Saturn also rules the 8th Aquarius house in traditional rulerships. Saturn is the physical world and Aquarius is technology which is the means whereby this sex change is made possible. All transgender people depend on drugs, hormones, surgery, all modern technologies bringing Aquarian freedom. Aquarius is beyond gender, unisex they used to call it.

MARS is in Gemini in the 11th house also Aquarian natured along with the Sun and Mercury. Mars is the planet of everything male, action, defenses, sex, and passion. Makes sense that Mars is also dualistic. Mars is conjunct the asteroid EROS as is Caitlyn’s Sun making her an erotic object of millions of people’s attention and discussions. Like Caitlyn/Bruce or hate/him everyone will have an opinion about what she is and what she means.

MARS rules Caitlyn’s ARIES MC, career or world’s stage position as well as the 5th house. She is a gender-bending warrioress an Amazon. There is also an acting, creative self-expression, vanity, ego, being the drama Queen, open-heartedness.  Saturn and the Moon occupy the 5th house as well. There’s some serious shit drama being told here.

JUPITER, planet of expansion is in LEO in the 1st house of ME. “I AM” selfie, ego. Jupiter in LEO is the courage to live from your heart. Enormous will power, strength and charisma. Caitlyn’s identity is rich, royal, powerful, dramatic, vain, ego driven, selfish. Jupiter is conjunct asteroid JUNO the Goddess whose name was given to the month of June. Juno was the “long-suffering wife of Zeus {Hera in Greek myths}.  Juno symbolizes the perfect wife, feminine symbol of the masculine’s image of a passive servant of patriarchal, a Trophy wife or woman, larger than life image.

NEPTUNE planet of spirituality, dreams, illusion, glamour, delusion, fantasy, denial, addictions, Hollywood, is in Pisces in the 8th {Scorpio-like} house of sex, money, power, transformation and secrets. Neptune is square to the Sun of Caitlyn’s identity so there is something ephemeral and not totally real or substantial about her identity. Much of it is fantasy, Hollywood, creating illusions and drug based.

NEPTUNE is squaring Saturn Retrograde, the Sun, Mars and Eros. Desire may be an obsessive fantasy, a past-life memory and obsession. The image feeds popular culture’s desire to deny serious reality and to talk about {Gemini} glamour and illusion, plastic surgery, nothing very real in the name of reality TV. 

URANUS, planet of individual freedom, revolution, chaos, technology, invention, and change is exactly at the High Noon position of Caitlyn’s chart waving its flag or freedom.  Uranus symbolizes Aquarian liberation for all. Caitlyn certainly shocked a lot of people and will always do so.Uranus is squaring Venus bringing a revolutionary new feminine identity.

PLUTO, Lord of DEATH, rebirth, sex, and transformation is at the 15th and most powerful degree of Capricorn, which is physical reality in the 6th house of work and service. Pluto is square to Uranus and the Mid-heaven. This transformation is also very career based. It is meant to boost Caitlyn’s career.  Pluto rules Scorpio, the 5th house of the will, actors, creative-self-expression and heart.

Pluto symbolizes archetypes, the unconscious and Caitlyn is definitely carrying an Archetypal energy. All famous people embody Archetypal presences. As Bruce was an Olympic champion he already belongs to the home of the Gods and Goddesses.  Zeus was forever shape-shifting, and taking different forms.

There is also a “FINGER OF GOD” or inconjunct aspect between Jupiter and Mars to Pluto. It is Caitlyn’s education and the expansion {Jupiter} of her ego, pride and privilege [Leo} to be aggressively aiming {Mars} to be living from the Soul’s- Pluto’s desires and dictates.

LILITH, the first woman, is in VIRGO in the 3rd house of communications opposite CHIRON in the 9th house of philosophy and teaching and square MARS in GEMINI and Asteroid Pandora in the 11th house of wishes hopes and dreams. By embodying the wounded, rejected Dark Goddess, symbol of authenticity, power and needing no one in a relationship, Caitlyn will always be at war with the patriarchy, will always be rejected in some way at the same time acting as a teacher and wounded healer. She may look happy, Mars in Gemini, but deep down the wounds will never heal.

CHIRON at 21+ degrees PISCES is in a GRAND WATER TRINE with Venus in Cancer on the Ascendant and the Moon in Scorpio. Chiron is the wounded healer, and Chiron is the vulnerability, the wound that heals. Chiron is the animal, wild untamable instinctive part of our natures. Chiron in Pisces is deep soul wounds, spiritual wounds, self-undoing and Moon in Scorpio is obsessive, sexual, deeply controlling, into being in power. Caitlin is a wounded soul, a feminine soul, although soul is beyond gender, who has waited till maturity to transform into her desired sexual identity.

Pluto is conjunct the asteroid named Caitlyn. You can’t make this stuff up. 

Pluto and Uranus were in Virgo, a feminine sign involved in the sexual revolution of women in the 60’s when Feminism became broadly based because of the new technology of birth control pills. Interesting that Uranus is now in Aries, ruled by Mars, a masculine sign and Pluto is in Capricorn a feminine sign known for the Patriarchy and corporate halls of power and wealth. The modern Uranus/Pluto square is producing a radically different type of sexual revolution.

The NORTH NODE is in LIBRA symbolizing, being an ambassador, a go-between and balancing the opposites. Libra is extremely social and needs to be noticed by others, Libra is in the 3rd house, Gemini- natural house of information. North Node in Libra is ruled by Venus, Goddess of beauty, love, harmony, the arts, and relationships.

The South Node in Aries in the 9th house is leaving the Masculine, Mars ruled aggression behind. The 9th is a Sagittarius type house, symbolizing being a teacher, a philosopher, a traveler, having honesty and integrity. Caitlyn brings the past forward with her transforming it into Libran.

The asteroid Loke the closest name for Loki the Norse Trickster God who could become female, is at zero degrees Virgo in the talk talk 3rd house exactly square to Saturn in Sagittarius and square Asteroid VESTA at the 29th last karmic degree of Pisces. This symbolizes that Caitlyn is carrying deep archetypal role-playing through this incarnation. Vesta is the Goddess of focus, sacred space internally and inVESTments, literally $. There a trickster element to Caitlyn’s identity.

Caitlyn’s VENUS is importantly Out Of Bounds beyond 23 degrees 26 minutes. This means that Caitlyn is a person who had walked away from situations which more conventional people might consider prestigious. She has decided to escape from the rules and norms of society which she was born into. She is ignoring society’s expectation in relation to gender, age and stereotypes.

Caitlyn’s trandgendering is modern shape-shifting. Shamans traditionally do this in spirit and in physical flight. She is an androgyne, that is also a scientific and mythic term.  I think we need new language. Caitlyn to me is in-between sexes and states, still transitional or liminal. Why not call this state an inbetwixt or a twain?  How about femliminal? Or simply androgynous, it is an alchemical term. 

Love her, hate her or totally indifferent to the hype, the state of transgender is a hot topic. Naturally there are a very small percentage of the population who feel born into the wrong sexual body, as are hermaphrodites. Transgender does occur naturally, there is a group of people who naturally change sex at puberty, a genetic mutation of sorts. Much of the issue has to do with Patriarchal cultural stereotyping. Language anchors us in culturally based stereotypes. What do you think?

 

Paul McCartney wrote a song about this on the White Album back in the 6o’s.

Ruled by that fancy fleet- footed messenger  of the Gods – MERCURY

Mercury/Hermes Gemini's planet ruler

used by FTD florist as their symbol

MERCURY is aka  QUICKSILVER 

Mercury Gemini/ astrology Tara Greene

QUICKSILVER?MERCURY  used to be in thermometers, and whose actions, hard to pin it down, describes Gemini’s energies perfectly…Quicksilver is also a toxic poison but  can also be used to heal in Homeopathy- don’t mess with quicksilver on your own. 

And yes HERMES/MErcury iss most likely already in your head as fillings and can be very toxic to your health.

Mercury’s symbol is the caduceus. Not just an FTD Florist symbol, every MD in the world uses the caduceus to signify the healing profession of MEDICINE. The caduceus was originally employed by Chiron and Asclepius as snakes were used to help heal people in Ancient Greece, Snakes were used in the Oracles at DELPHI. Considered to be magical animals of the Goddess since always,two snakes entwined around the central staff or spine is KUNDALINI sexual energy.  The caduceus is an ancient symbol of DNA; symbolizes the twin poles of consciousness, balance and the combining of opposites as in ALCHEMY to produce something entirely new. This is a deep psychological image.
