Mercury conjunct Vesta, Sacred Priestess of sex

Mercury Retrograde is in an exact conjunction May 1st with Vesta, the sacred Goddess of light, fire and sexuality. Mercury is re-joining in TANTRIC union with the Goddess of sacred sexuality and focus on at 23 degrees TAURUS.

How appropriate.  May Day is the Day of celebration of sexuality as sacred, sexuality as Divine Union, sexuality as the main spiritual component in human lives. That is why the Catholic Church created this false celibacy, and warning of the “sins of the flesh” and blaming women as Temptresses. They knew that sex was the immanent direct route to experience oneness, divine bliss, and ecstasy and they wanted to control the most powerful and natural of instincts to control the people. A pretty scary and CRAZY idea. 

Vesta or Hestia in the Roman mythology was the very first Goddess, she rules the hearth and Temple flames, the central focus of all cultural life.

Mercury Retrograde in Taurus is a backslide into sensuality and fleshy knowledge. We need to taste the sweet, the salty, the spicy. We need to re-awaken our senses for being awake in the world. 

WHO WERE THE VESTAL “VIRGINS”?

In ancient times all women served as Sacred High Priestesses of the Goddess in her Temples. In Ancient Greece all unmarried women had to spend a year in service as a tantric priestess before being able to marry. The term Virgin originally meant “whole and complete, belonging to no one, or to no man.” An autonomous woman. 

These sacred Vestal High Priestesses initiated men into divine union with the Goddess. All women became the Divine Goddess, through ritual, prayer, fasting, chanting, dedication, intention, dancing, meditation practices and anointing themselves with perfumes, and partaking of psychotropic mushrooms and plants they experienced themselves as the Divine Feminine, the Divine Goddess and Mother. They became HER.  They were called Divine Hierodules, like the term Hierophant, or High Priest. Another name was the houris, from which the modern word hours is derived and the sacred Hebrew dance, the hora. 

VESTA is the ARCHETYPE of the HIGH PRIESTESS 

I remember many past lives lived as a Vestal and many other types of Goddess worshipping High Priestesses. 

The VESTAL “virgins” served as sexual healers to men who had PTSD from being in War. These men would not be allowed to reintegrate into normal, stable society until they had had the profane bloodshed of war washed away from them by having sacred intercourse with a bleeding Priestess, thus exchanging the Blood of War for the Blood of Life. These women became the Divine Goddess, through ritual, prayer, fasting, chanting, dedication, intention, dancing and anointing themselves with perfumes, and partaking of psychotropic mushrooms and plants they experienced themselves as the Divine Feminine, the Divine Goddess and Mother. They became HER. 

I love the SYNCHRONICITY of this. Mercury , the messenger, the hermaphrodite god, the two lobes of our brains, in Retrograde is bringing back our bodily memories of participation into the Great Mystique of life on this day as Sacred. We all remember participating in these types of rituals. We have been alive in every form and in every culture and time. We know this in our cells. 

I remember many past lives lived as a HIGH PRIESTESS in any different ages and temples. I have had these memories since I was about 6 years old. I had no knowledge of this from the time period I grew up in. I trusted what I felt, saw and knew. This knowledge came bursting forth in a Grade 11 Art History class, in visiting many sacred sites Stonehenge, Ephesus in Turkey, sailing on the Mediterranean near Crete when I was 17 and many more times in Holotropic Breathworks and other spontaneous visions. 

Celebrate this great coming together of the Messenger and the VIRGIN ever renewing Goddess by practicing tantric firebreathing.Celebrate your beloved. Praise new life. 

What is being conceived on this day in your life?

Blessings to you  all.

Star fields, soul maps, Pluto synchronicity

Expand your thinking exponentially and more cosmically with our space probe New Frontiers, name destiny – getting up close to Pluto 3 billion miles away on July 14th. A three billion mile journey just to fly by but we will see Pluto for the first time since he was discovered 88 years ago.  Pluto is HADES, Hell powerful King of the Dead. Persephone, daughter of Demeter/Ceres is his wife for half the year. 

I also predicted that Pluto would be reinstated as a planet after the new photos of him in my 2015 predictions.

As psychologist James Hillman says about Pluto/Hade  his “fearful cold intelligence […] gives permanent shelter in his house to the incurable conditions of human being.” We are learning more about being human in a vast world of Light and Dark Matter. I am thinking of the Kabbalah and CERN and Stuart Wilde’s talking about the ALuna. 

I had a very deep flash earlier this evening. I suddenly dropped into a clear space, It was  like a whirling carousel of dimensions. It felt like some new inter-dimensional energy is pouring in it felt good, hopeful, beneficient.

You must pay attention to what is going on in the world. CERN and The Light and Dark Matter are being separated out. It’s all symbolic of what is happening.

It’s all one big story we are one cosmic being, we are looking at ourselves in a mirror. We are everywhere. We just think we are here, in one location, that is a trick of the mind. The ego mind is the devil.

PLUTO against the star fields that New Frontiers navigates by.

Pluto stars Astrology Tara Greene

WOW!

synchronicity:  A birth chart is a soul map, a star field.

I was reading the Mountain Astrologer Magazine, an article about progressions. It is a technique where the sun moon and all the planets progress forward {or backwards if Retrograde} a day for a year of time by using an ephemeris or modern astrology software to do the mathematical calculations. There are different types of progressions, secondary progressions, solar arc etc. Secondary Progressions of the Moon, are very powerful, the Moon moves 1 degree every two hours in real time. In progressions the Moon advances 1 degree a month, and takes 2 and a half years to move through a sign.

The Moon lays down in the first few months of your life, the emotional and concrete experiences that will emerge later in life. We re-experience the memories and emotions the Moon symbolizes both those things, our pre-birth, birth and after-birth imprints.

INSPIRATIONAL CARD OF THE DAY

Thoth Tarot High Preistess

The Moon is the Tarot Trump #2 The HIGH PRIESTESS

the Moon embodied in her cooler more detached state.  She is the veil between the worlds and dimension.  What needs to be unveiled? The High Priestess brings the message that you have incredible strength to carry you across the desert without water for a very long time{emotional support.} Trust your instincts. Especially around this New Moon.

The universe is so fascinating. I may be off for a few days so please do read over more article. PLease comment and reblog if you like things,

Blessings TARA
