V for Vendetta remember Guy Fawkes

Guy Fawkes Day is November 5th

Most Americans know of the famous V for Vendetta from the Graphic Novel and film. But what is the story of Guy Fawkes and why Is it so important right now? Especially that it is one day before these critical mid-term elections in the U.S.

V for Vendetta was originally a Graphic Novel written by Alan Moore illustrated by David Lloyd and published first in March of 1982. It was subsequently made into a 2005 British film written by the Wachowski’s who wrote and directed the Matrix, then the Wachowski brothers. 

Originally known as the Gunpowder Plot of 1605, Guy Fawkes joined a group of English Catholics and attempted to assassinate Protestant King James -James VI of scotland, by planting 900 kilos of gunpowder in the cellar of the Palace of Westminster. Fawkes was caught while checking on the stored powder hours before the plot was due to be set in motion, as an anonymous letter was sent to alert the King. Fawkes was arrested and tortured into revealing the names of his co-conspirators, and subsequently executed.

The anniversary of the thwarted Gunpowder Plot of 1605 is celebrated in the U.K. every year on November, 5. In commemoration, amongst the backdrop of fireworks and frenzy, effigies of Britain’s most famous terrorist made with newspaper, straw, and old clothes are burned in bonfires, all adorned with masks bearing a likeness of Fawkes’ face. From 1605 until 1939 every village green in the shires had a bonfire on Guy Fawkes’ Day. During the WWII not bonfires were allowed. 

Parliament declared November 5 Guy Fawkes day and it’s now celebrated with bonfires, fireworks in the parks and the carrying of “guys” through the streets. “Guys” are stuffed, straw figures of unpopular persons; and after they have been shown to everybody they are burnt in the bonfires amid great acclamation. The children black their faces and put on comical clothes, and go about begging for a Penny for the Guy. 

The famous mask is used to represent freedom from tyranny of all kinds. We can see hoe current again this subject is.  read more about it here

“Because while the truncheon may be used in lieu of conversation, words will always retain their power. Words offer the means to meaning, and, for those who will listen, the enunciation of truth.” One of my favorite movie quotes of all time.

“If you think you’re too small to make a difference, try going to bed with a mosquito in the room.”

“When a government does not stand for the best interests of the people, it should not stand at all.” 

Think about Guy Fawkes and what he would do if he could Vote.

Review your love life

October 15 I know Venus Retro is still making everyone cry a lot, relationships are tough, in a tizzy. Even Pete Davidson and Ariana Grande break up after a whirlwind engagement.  I am going through my own relationship issues with a very close family member which began when Mars was Retrograde. It is hard. I cry a lot. My heart aches. I have been sleeping with a rose quartz stone on my heart chakra every night. I try not to think about it all the time but that is very hard with Venus in SCORPIO which is obsessively unrelentingly focussed on the why? doing the detective excavation work, remembering forgotten parts of the past. 

Under a serious Capricorn Moon today until the 17th 

things are rather light and easy beneficial aspects today which helps get things done through sextiles from the Moon to Mercury in Scorpio, Venus in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces. Its easier to touch our emotional bodies.

MERCURY and VENUS meet up in Scorpio at 8 degrees 

The Sabian symbol is “The Moon shining across a lake.”

This is a very apropos image. Reflect on your emotions and on the depths of your womb/soul experience. All water elements refer us back to our own beginning in the waters of our mother’s wombs.

Obsessively rehashing rethinking probability-izing what could have been said differently. Remorse, reminiscing,  regrets, and analyzing every nuance from every direction. This aspect is in effect all week then Mercury and MARS in AQUARIUS square off. 

Stay with it. write things down, Don’t drive yourself crazy obsessing over this, I know it will be hard. 

This may also bring back old lovers and friends to rehash those conversations with.

We are like emotional archeologists and forensics digging up old skeletons sorting through the bones of forgotten memories of emotional and or sexual or power abuses.

Elections November 6 2018 Astrology

Mid-Term elections in the U.S. are very important in the continuing evolving revolutionary saga of the United States. 

The Mid-Term elections in the United States are held every two years in the middle of a Presidential term. Members of the U.S. Congress are up for election including all 435 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives and 35 of the 100 Seats in the U.S. Senate. These elections are important because whichever party holds the majority in Congress can set the national legislative agenda. Republicans have the majority in both the House of Representatives and the Senate but are currently projected to lose the House.

Let’s look at how these midterms will turn out based on Astrology. The chart is set to 11:00 pm EST in WASHINGTON because 8:00 pm is the close of the west coast voting poll stations.

Mid term elections Astrology tara Greene

The Sun and Moon are conjunct in Scorpio, it’s the day before a New Moon indicating a culmination cycle. The Moon always symbolizes the public and it’s moods and women specifically. Sun and Moon in the 8th sign is an emotional feminine sign of power struggles, sex, revenge, obsession, endings, money, psychology, secrets, death and rebirth. Given the recent anger of millions of women who were outraged by Judge Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court appointment after Fords’ testimony that he sexually abused her was ignored they felt. We can see the women coming out in full force to defeat the Republicans. Moreover, the Sun and Moon are in the 4th house of roots, women, mothering, emotional safety. Women came out en masse to tell their experiences of sexual abuse and risking their own emotional safety to tell their stories and support each other.

Mars, the ruler of Scorpio is in Aquarius at 24 degrees squaring Jupiter at the last most critical 29th degree. This is a hard aspect. Mars in Aquarius is freedom from the past, and anger and rage over any restrictive traditional path. Jupiter expands Mars fighting mad liberating energy. This can work two ways- many Democrats are now acting like they are justified in their anger because the Republicans actions are so restrictive, controlling and traditional. This could backfire as well. Republican men started the poor me men are victims of false rape accusation which is so minimal in reality and totally overlooks and denies the very real Patriarchal male domination of women, blacks and immigrants issues.

This is very chaotic energy as Uranus, ruler of Aquarius is an electrically charg

ed tribal mindset. Mars is also conjunct to the U.S Natal Moon at 27 Aquarius and Jupiter is now squaring that too bringing an even bigger jolt. The Moon in the U.S. July 4, 1776, chart is women, Mom, apple pie and traditional values. No to that.

Venus is Retrograde in Libra at 27 degrees, conjunct Dwarf Planet Ceres opposite URANUS at the High Noon position of 29 degrees Aries and squaring the North Node at 29 CANCER.

This is a very powerful configuration. Venus = women, values, finance, relationships. In her Retrograde phase, Venus is going through a powerful death and rebirth to regain her powers. Venus’s tale of disappearance for 40 days was told in myth by one of the most ancient poems from Mesopotamia, the tale of Inanna, Queen of Heaven, going into the Underworld to visit her dark sister who is bereaved. Inanna was the goddess of love, beauty, sex, desire, fertility, war, justice and political power. Inanna’s consort Dumuzzi who she left on the throne is not mourning his Queen while she is gone. Inanna successfully returns to the Dayworld and to her throne and throws Dumuzzi out, disempowering his arrogance.

CERES is DEMETER in Greek myths and her daughter Persephone was raped into the Underworld by Pluto. When Ceres couldn’t find her daughter her grief and rage did not allow anything to grow on the earth. Eventually, Zeus {Jupiter} steps in and bargains a deal so that Persephone lives every summer with her mother and every winter with her husband Pluto. The very obvious symbolism here of balance being established.

URANUS opposite Venus is a women’s revolution very literally, for their freedom  in public positions of power will rock the establishment. 

North Node enters Cancer today.

The North Node is the highest evolutionary direction, now in Cancer today! The sign of the Mother, women, emotional security, children and food. The U.S. is a Cancerian country. Women’s values, protection of children from trafficking and abuse and women choosing what makes them feel emotionally safe is the current highest direction. Although Trump is waging a good campaign against sex and child trafficking, ignoring women’s sexual abuse issues in the Kavanaugh nomination is most likely a Republican party’s downfall in this election. They will lose many many seats and lots of power and control.

The anger at sexual abuse issues, in general, triggered by Ford’s testimony whether it was true or not, is a tipping point in the return of the Goddess in women’s power. Women’s experiences of being constantly sexually abused not being recognized means women will not support any Patriarchal anything anymore.

CHIRON the Wounded Healer is in a GRAND WATER TRINE

At the 29th degree of Pisces the most karmic degree of our collective soul wounds trining Jupiter Lord of benefits, expansion, and faith, trines the North Node in Cancer.

Water Trines are super feminine emotional energy and Jupiter expands the fever, it will be running high. Women are the wounded ones; ignored, victims, martyrs, given the short end of the stick by the Law. We need to uphold and follow feminine values of compassion for all.

JUNO the Goddess Asteroid of Feminine Genius at 27 TAURUS forms a Finger of God with CHIRON in PISCES and VENUS and CERES in LIBRA

This is another very powerful esoteric symbol of the DIVINE FEMININE exerting resources, values and power { Taurus} and healing itself of its wounds by achieving Justice, the scales of Libra and attempting to rebalance power.

The Sabian Symbol for the 30th degree of CANCER?

A DAUGHTER OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION- you can’t make this stuff up.

The Traditional symbol refers to upholding tradition to my mind this alludes to a new inclusive revolution by women created by them.

Pluto turns Direct September 30

Pluto is stationary turning Direct September 30 @ 7:03 pm PDT/ 10:03 pm EDT/ October 1 @ 2:03 am GMT

Pluto will begin to inch forwards in about 4 to 5 days.

todays astrology Tara Greene

What has been hidden held back while Putos has been Retrograde since April 22, 2018, will slowly bubble up like toxic swamp gas. 

Pluto rules the Collective Unconscious and if you think the big sexual secrets, such as – paedophilia by the Catholic church and all the recent support for the millions of women who have been sexually abused for aeons coming out now is a bid deal- that is just the tip of Hades iceberg. My old teacher Stuart Wilde used to say that Hell is freezing cold like people who are unfeeling and love is warm hot and fuzzy. right?

The polarity that we are seeing is also being created and used and promoted by the NWO. While I do not agree with sexism, misogyny, racism and Ku Klux Klan white supremacy at all. The equal and opposite and just as restrictive hate is to blame all Republicans for being sexist racist and wanting to wipe them off the map as I’ve seen a prominent person do on Instagram is just fascist too. 

We need to be smarter than that. It is so easy to manipulate people into knee-jerk responses. For me the good thing in all of this is to see the positive effects of this polarizing as millions of woman support each other by admitting in public their sexual abuse and releasing their personal and the collective shame and naming the sexist culture which has created it. 

The Moon is in Gemini today making another trine to Mercury in Libra 

more hot debates going on.

MOON is VOID OF COURSE FROM 11:38 AM EST all day 

a great sunday for chilling.

Moon enters CANCER October 1 @ 2:00 pm EST

Blaming or scapegoating the other is not healthy. Freedom of speech is what democracy is built on. Everyone needs to be allowed to express their views without being threatened. Yes there is no room for hate speech from either side.  But in my world the entire Christian Bible is one big hate speech against women. 

If we are evolving let’s take this to a higher level of consciousness. Things are extreme as new worlds begin. These old Senators and Saturn ruled historical old boys are at the end of their power and they are trying to hang on by the skin of their teeth but they are still the ones who have the power. That is why the revolution is happening at any moment. 

Revolutions aren’t usually pretty or bloodless, The big danger is this kind of fomentation and emotional chaos sets everyone up for a police state. One way or the other everyone can lose all their power to the corporate Gods.  That is the very darkest side of Pluto in Capricorn and remember Saturn is also in Capricorn now heading for a meeting with Pluto. Jupiter will also be in Capricorn and note  December 26, 2019, with a Solar Eclipse at 4 degrees Capricorn conjunct Jupiter.

There is a fated date of January 12, 2020 with Jupiter in Capricorn conjunct the South Node in Capricorn. 

Also note April 5, 2020, when a New Jupiter-Pluto- The Billionaire’s transit occurs at 24 Capricorn conjunct the South Node of Pluto @ 23 degrees Capricorn. There is a second conjunction on June 30, 2020. 

NOte: November 13 2020, the final Jupiter- Pluto conjunction at 22 degrees Capricorn conjunct Saturn!

On December 21 2020 Winter Solstice a new 20-year cycle begins with a Jupiter Saturn conjunction at zero degrees AQUARIUS. This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius? 

Be very aware and listen to your still inner voice beyond all the cacophony. That’s the perfect word for now. Watch out for the caca bad who is the real phony?

VENUS the jewel of the night skies is, of course, the planet of women beauty money love romance and the arts is in SCORPIO where she deepens the values of all things feminine. Venus in Scorpio is the seductress and siren.  She has very rich tastes. Money and high finance is a Scorpio thing. Her ability to mesmerize is legendary. She is sexual power and she will get whatever she wants using whatever means necessary. 

JUPITER is the optimist; the benefactor; the expansive good-natured teacher and philanthropist. In Scorpio, he brings intense desires and willpower. Jupiter in Scorpio demands you take that trip to hell and come back with the prize.When these two meet up its GOOD LOVIN for sure.
