The origins of the Tarot.

The great Swiss psychologist Carl Jung coined the term synchronicity and he used the Tarot in his psychological research. He also used Astrology and the I Ching as part of his defining what Archetypes and the Collective Unconscious are

Jung said in a short piece reveal the depth of insights that the tarot can bring. I first started reading about Jung in my first-year university way back in the ’70s/ Man and His Symbols. 

This article may not be factually correct though. Tarot cards were first designed as playing cards as a parlour game for the wealthy Italian families in the Renaissance.

It was only much later that Tarot cards became entwined with divination because of one man, Court de Gebelin in a vast treatise he channelled is the best way I can describe it.

“De Gébelin wrote an essay included in his Le Monde primitif, analysé et comparé avec le monde moderne (“The Primeval World, Analyzed and Compared to the Modern World”), volume viii, 1781. ” -Wikipedia

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antoine_Court_de_G%C3%A9belin

Here’s a factual account of the true history of tarot versus the Modern Myths.

what do tarot cards mean to you?

I just had a fabulous time at the 2nd annual Love & Light tarot International Conference in Montreal September 20-22 and there will be another one next year which I will present at and attend. I got to present along with the Queen’s of the Tarot world Mary Greer and Rachel Pollack and my other amazing friend and Tarot counsellor Katerina Wynne.   

Astrology in the News

Astrology ” As above so below.” The news often reflects the aspects between the planets.
The Keystone Pipeline Leak is perfectly in synch-unfortunately.

This weeks Venus Jupiter conjunction Trines Neptune +Sun trine Chiron in PISCES.

oil spill Astrology Tara Greene

Mr. Bitumen” oil painting by Napoleon Brousseau 2014

Jupiter expands whatever it touches; Neptune rules oil. Venus is values. Venus in Scorpio rules things underground and death.

Sun Chiron in PISCES trine on November 16 when the leak happened

governs vulnerabilities and wounds or leaks. Pisces is a water sign.

SATURN in SAGITTARIUS is the truth and karma and Saturn is squaring Chiron now.

 

 

The #NoDAPL protested this possibility for months. The Keystone Pipeline operated by TransCanada brings the tar sands from Alberta to the U.S. to be refined. The Alberta tar sands oil is thicker and stickier than other types of oil making it more difficult to clean up.

The indigenous peoples are bracing for the 210000 gallons of oil spilled in the leak. Apparently, the leak was detected and the pipeline was isolated within 15 minutes.It is too early to tell if the oil contaminated the groundwater.

The Indigenous Attorney Chase Iron Eyes one of the founders of the #NoDAPL is on trial right now with serious charges against him.

Setting powerful intentions Sagittarius

11/2 Under a SAGE Sagittarius Moon of honesty and optimism

Sagittarius Tara Greene astrologer

Moon squares Neptune in the wee hours

expect another night of vivid dreams

The rest of the day is all sextiles and conjunctions

Sag. Moon sextiles JUPITER, ruler of Sagittarius, in Libra in the a.m.

This is a very positive aspect for meeting new people, relationships of all kinds, but especially romantic ones; connecting with others, and feeling socially graceful, instead of klutzy as Sagittarius is wont to do. It helps Sagittarius’ usually rather crude and rude honest speak to be more thoughtful of other people’s feelings. As a Sagittarius I know, whereof I speak. 

Sag Moon conjuncts serious SATURN

This will make any wandering gypsy feel more mature. This aspect tames and matures the wild mustangs and mustang-ettes.  Saturn is the planet of reality. Sagittarius is a high falutin’ adventure loving, promising more than it can deliver sign. Saturn makes Sag “grow corn.” It makes Sagittarius get real, produce the goods, make the band work, walk their talk. Sagittarians may be feeling their oats rather than sowing their wild ones these days but it is a good test. 

Sagittarians it’s a good day to sign contracts, make promises that you can keep, propose, start a new venture, book, education program, go to court, pay homage to a mentor or your dad. Saturn is the COSMIC Tax man, you must play by the rules. 

MERCURY sextiles PLUTO in CAPRICORN @ 15+ Scorpio/Capricorn 11/2 PDT/11/3 EDT/GMT

This is a good aspect to make some serious deep digging into the collective shadows as well as your own. Good for uncovering long held secrets. Expect some major news releases about more dirt in the elections for Trump or Clinton or both. 

Sag Moon conjuncts VENUS @ 18+ degrees 11/2 pm EDT/11/3 EDT and GMT

This is a very loving aspect for all Sagittarius peeps. You will feel romantic creative, expansive, optimistic, eager to travel, for new adventures and feeling renewed. Venus has been a big blessing to me crossing Saturn as I have only been feeling Saturns dense heavy energies. Venus brings some warmth to the coldness and hardness of Saturn. This brings out a commitment to show your love of animals, wide open spaces, traveling, learning, publishing and justice anywhere in the world. 

Walk your talk about any injustice you feel upset about in the world. The other day I watched RT-Russian Television which I get on cable and which my husband and I have been really fascinated to watch as it gives an entirely different view on world politics. Larry King is on here !? I watched a poor Cambodian woman who was 9 months pregnant and dirt poor who was forced to work right up to her birth so that she had some extra money. She made the equivalent of $140 dollars a month, I assume U.S. She labored making Calvin Klein clothes which sell for a lot of money while she is literally a modern slave. I started to cry, I felt so bad for her. A beautiful young woman, working in the rice paddy fields that her mother owned and she was so poor. While middle-class women spend thousands of dollars on fashion brands every year being victims of fashions’ phony dictates all at this and thousands of women just like her, expense. That is sick. I don’t shop brands, I rarely buy new clothes. I only buy on sale. I have one purse at a time. I would never waste money on expensive clothes. This is part of my politics. I walk my talk.

Saturn is consequences and responsibility. Think about the consequences of how you spend your money. Think of the well known SLAVE LABOUR which has been used to make your IPhone’s and all those luxury brands. Those $200 name brand jeans cost $4 to make. Same for Nike shoes, especially what’s his name Yeezy. Bunch of crap. The poor girls who sew all day at factories in China, or other third world countries make pennies. Their energy is in those clothes. As they are desperate they have nothing else but to be grateful for this servitude.  

If you consider yourself “conscious” or spiritual or witchy or Goddessy. I say you are what you wear and where it came from and how it was made. Think about the truth of that. I hope this makes you change your ways. 

This aspect also brings a love of truth in politics, except who is telling the truth?

Election Day and Lilith Astrology by Tara Greene

Let’s look at what the sky says about the U.S. Presidential election on November 8th, to see if we can get a sense of who will be sworn in as of January 20, 2017. I will be as unbiased and neutral as I can. 

Donald Trump/ Hillary Clinton tara greene

Clinton                 Trump 

I’ll look at the chart alone and then at Clinton and Trump’s charts. 

I’ve used 2:56 pm in Washington D.C. to cast the chart.

November 8 2016 Tara Greene astrology

The Sun symbolizing the will at 16+ degrees Scorpio is conjunct to LILITH the first woman, who was rejected by the patriarchs who created the story of Genesis and the Patriarchal God. She told Adam to screw off as she would not be sexually dominated by him when male and female were created equally. LILITH is extremely powerful on this day. She backs women and hates misogynists. Her power has been ignored for too long. She is making her come back with Feminists, and women taking back their power, the witches, political activists, and generally younger females.  The Sun is  governed by Mars at the 29th critical degree of CAPRICORN Sign of the Patriarchy, big business, corporate structure. The Sun is also governed by modern ruler PLUTO at the 15th, also a very powerful degree in Capricorn as well and squared by positive JUPITER in LIBRA

The Sun is  governed by Mars at the 29th critical degree of CAPRICORN Sign of the Patriarchy, big business, corporate structure. The Sun is also governed by modern ruler PLUTO at the 15th, also a very powerful degree in Capricorn as well and squared by positive JUPITER in LIBRA. PLUTO is the apex of a Cardinal T-square. This energy has been in effect since 2015. 

Mars is squared by URANUS in ARIES the planet of freedom, sudden change, chaos, and revolution is conjunct to dwarf planet ERIS- Goddess of disturbia, the war making Goddess. Squares produce pressure and conflict. This indicates a revolutionary fervor but also a totally uncertain outcome. Freedom is a relative term. 

Sun is also governed by modern ruler PLUTO at the 15th degree, also a very powerful degree in Capricorn, the sign of the Plutocracy, the 1%, Hillary Clinton. Pluto is also squared also by URANUS and ERIS and by positive JUPITER in LIBRA.  Jupiter expands whatever he touches and supports lawyers, legal due process, and Hillary Clinton. But the flip floppy Libra nature makes things feel very imbalanced. This is a karmic rebalancing going on.  

If Mars rules the Scorpio SUN, from Capricorn, then the ruler of Capricorn the planet Saturn is the Final dispositer. Saturn is also at that very powerful mid-degree 15 of SAGITTARIUS, the sign of politics, truth in government, inspired leadership, justice, and foreigners.  Saturn limits and structures things. Saturn is being squared by NEPTUNE Retrograde and the SOUTH NODE in PISCES in a tight conjunction. Neptune in Pisces’s past karma can be one of deception, secrets, administrators, addictions, debts, illusions, delusions, glamor, and endings. CHIRON, the wounded Healer is also in square to Saturn at 20 degrees PISCES.  Saturn symbolizes history, tradition, solidification, maturity, testing, karma, obstacles. The country is hurting. This indicates a secret government in control of the outcome. 

CHIRON, the wounded Healer is also in square to Saturn at 20 degrees PISCES.  Saturn symbolizes history, tradition, solidification, maturity, testing, karma, obstacles. The country is hurting. This indicates a secret government in control of the outcome. The Sun is trining Chiron, the wounded healer, the underdog, the victims. 

The MOON always symbolizes the people. For most of the day, the Moon is in AQUARIUS, symbolizing the importance of computers in this election for better or worse and seeking a higher minded consciousness for the greater good of all. This can also symbolize a younger more technologically based group pulling its weight. If this indicates Millenials they will favor Clinton. Trump is also the master of tweeting. People can be detached and less emotional about what has been a very heated election. 

The Moon is void of course for most of the day, which usually symbolizes a less than positive outcome. The Moon enters the emotional feminine sign of PISCES at 1:45 pm PST/ 4:45 pm EST which makes the mood much more emotional, sensitive, rooting for the “underdog” deceptive, projections may be off, religious addictions may take sway, something will be “fishy.” The Moon is close to Neptune and the South Node indicating that things will remain the same. 

The Moon enters the emotional feminine sign of PISCES at 1:45 pm PST/ 4:45 pm EST which makes the mood much more emotional, sensitive, rooting for the “underdog” deceptive, projections may be off, religious addictions may take sway, something will be “fishy.” The Moon is close to Neptune and the South Node indicating that things will remain the same. Neptune rules ideals, and also fog. People may be feeling confused and unable to focus. The outcome may be hard to discern. There is a sleight of hand, aspect to all of this. Who knows what’s really going on?

MARS the planets of men, action, defenses and war enters AQUARIUS @ 9:51 pm PST. This shift gears in the energy as well. The polls will be closed, but the way the election will be commented on or accounted for may shift to depending on computerized information. Hackers may intervene in the election.

The only thing we can know for sure is that whoever wins the other party will be up in arms. A civil war will start as the result of this election.

Lets look at Hillary and Trump’s chart against this chart. I have switched the time back to a natural chart with Zero degrees Aries on Ascendant.

TRUMP is a GEMINI born June 14, 1946 @ 10:54 am in Jamaica, New York with URANUS and the North Node conjunct his Twin nature Sun. He was born on a Full Moon with his Moon in “tell it straight|, Sagittarius at 21+ degrees. Trump’s Sun Uranus NN is opposite to transiting SATURN which his Moon is conjunct to. Saturn is always tests and limitations, karmic difficulties but also consolidating and structuring power. Trump is having his Jupiter return which is very positive, but Transiting Jupiter is also conjunct to his Natal Chiron-Jupiter conjunction in Libra and opposed by Uranus in ARIES on Nov. 8th which makes everything extremely unpredictable for Trump. He is a wild card. 

Transiting Mars is opposite Trump’s Natal Saturn VENUS conjunction in late Cancer and squared by URANUS and ERIS in ARIES. This is a difficult aspect. The Moon in late Aquarius will cross his Part of Fortune but is also opposed to Trump’s Natal macho MARS and Ascendant in Late LEO. The “I am king macho drama guy who thinks he owns women”. The majority of women will be out to trounce him. 

Transiting LILITH is conjunct the Scorpio Sun and inconjunct to Trump’s Sun  Uranus and Natal North Node. Lilith conjunct the Sun in Scorpio brings death to any man who tries to conquer her.  I feel this bodes ill for Trump.

Hillary Clinton now has a more accurate birth time, October 26, 1947, 8:02 am Chicago. Hillary despite her recent FBI investigation will have the SUN and LILITH, Mercury and JUNO the Feminine genius Asteroid conjunct to her natal Chiron, Mercury, Venus, South Node and Jupiter in Scorpio.  Sun, Lilith in transit also square Hillarys very ballsy natal Mars-Pluto-Saturn conjunction in Leo, That’s female power. Transiting Pluto  is conjunct to Hillarys natal LILITH at 19 degrees CAPRICORN. Pluto symbolizes the collective unconscious of the country and he is backing Hillary as the First women president. 

The North Node in Virgo the transiting highest evolutionary point is in her Natal 10th house of worldly power. Saturn in Sagittarius is trining her natal Mars/Pluto conjunction in Leo conjunction. Yes, she is a hawk. Saturn also trines her natal Saturn giving her an easy ascent to power.

Transiting Jupiter in Libra is exactly conjunct her natal Neptune. Pluto in Capricorn is also squaring her natal Neptune. This is a dream come true.  As Jupiter in Libra is about equality in relationships, having a women president for the first time balances that power. 

Hillary health is an issue as she has transiting Chiron on her Natal PISCES MOON, this has been going on for awhile. She will come out of it in 2017. Transiting Venus is at the Galactic Center at 27 degrees SAGITTARIUS squaring Clinton’s natal Moon and Chiron in Pisces in general. Venus is also opposite to Clinton’s natal Uranus in GEMINI conjunct to the POLE STAR.

Women will be the ones who make the difference in this election. Hillarys Moon in Pisces indicates she also has many secrets which we know about, but, the women will be the ones who change the fate of America here. Venus in Sagittarius is equality for women, they are feeling the pain of being held back victimized, raped, used, blamed and martyred for far too long. As imperfect as Hillary is, she still symbolizes the evolutionary nature of the election and these times. She has stood up for women’s rights.

It will be a roller coaster. I send the U.S. prayers. The astrological community just had a big conference in the U.S.  at ISAR. They picked Hillary Clinton to win.  I had predicted Hillary the next President back in 2015.

Sunday October 30 please join in with an International Prayer Vigil to support and stand with the water protestors of STANDING ROCK there is a Facebook page. Wherever you are please add your prayers. Prayer asks great spirit to help those with a pure heart and intent. The way the indigenous people have been shamefully treated battered and arrested during an unarmed, peaceful protest has the world watching in horror.  Call President Obama and ask him to keep his promise to halt the DAP. 

 

 

 

Quirky Libra New Moon Horoscope with Unicorns

We are getting up close and personal with quirky, brilliant, rebellious, planet Uranus October 11 @ 11:49 pm EDT/ 8:49 pm PDT/  October 12 @ 3:49 am UT/GMT/. Uranus is closest to the earth and opposing the Sun, This is an important  annual transit.

Mercury, the Messenger  is a SUN WHISPERER at perihelion October 12 where he is closest to the Sun.

Libra Moon squares Pluto in Capricorn @ 13 degrees @ 4:20 am PDT/ 7:20 am EDT/11:20 am UT/GMT.
Moon opposes Uranus @ 18+ degrees @ 3:21 pm PDT/ 6:21 pm EDT/@ 10:21 pm GMT/
OCTOBER 12/13
The Libra New Moon is at 19+ degrees Libra @ 5:06 pm PDT/ 8:06 pm EDT/
October 13 @ 12:06 am GMT.
NEW MOON’s are intention setting times.  Libra is the symbol of balance and relationships. Your sex life needs some revolutionary fresh air. This can be a time more open marriages or relationships becoming the norm. We must make peace with the balance of the evolutionary consciousness of Uranus who breaks down old worn out, historical, patriarchal Saturnine structures { Senators} and creates freedom, space, new ideas and inventions and liberates us now.
The Sun and Moon in Libra are all about being NICE. Libra at its most superficial stays in relationships because of the social benefits, the friends in high places, the beautiful fashions, style, art, money and grace.  Uranus in Aries wants none of it. He says Fuck all that Bullshit, tear down the invisible prisons of pseudo-choice and be really free. 
Mercury in conjunct to the North Node at 1 degrees Libra.
I go by the True Node and it will not change signs until November 11 which I also considered to be more important because of the symbolism of 11:11.  The North Node is our collective spiritual compass our G.P.S.  Mercury is intelligence and balancing both sides of the brain, the intellectual rational with the feminine intuitive creative side. 
This NEW MOON resurrects the Cardinal Cross energies. We, like Christ still have this T-cross to bare. 
Jupiter in Virgo is conjunct to Mars by 2 degrees  
There is energy to organize and keep things  orderly and functioning. These two are opposing Chiron the Wounded Healer in Pisces. We must pay attention to what our pain bodies are telling us. We must honor our bodies, and attend to the practical every day realities’ demands. Your guts may be acting up during this time. Do be careful about what you eat.
Venus in Virgo opposes Neptune -exact on October 16 
Venus governs Libra, so she is the final dispositer here.  Venus in Virgo’s idea of romance and true love, as a friend of mine once said was her husband organizing her filing cabinet for her. Venus in Virgo is extremely health conscious, eating organic foods, religiously does yoga,  walks in nature, hugs trees, she cleans up her community and rescues stray animals. She budgets before she buys anything. No credit cards for her. She is a workaholic perfectionist, who is pretty uptight and worries a lot. She is intelligent and well read. A down to earth gal.
QUESTIONS TO ASK..
How tidy is your love life? Your bank account? Your diet and health regime? 
These are the essential things of life that must be balanced now.
With Uranus in the mix we must think outside the box. Venus in Virgo likes simplicity, she doesn’t need 4,500 square foot homes, she doesn’t need to impress anyone. She knows intelligence and common sense are more important assets.
The CHANDRA Symbol for 20 degrees Libra, from John Sandbach
“In a lush, dark forest a unicorn prancing.” 
Unicorns Horoscopes Tara Greene

“A magic purity that lives in its own hidden realm is felt by anyone who contacts this degree. The perception of truth is clarified and deepened and the wonder of the universe is accessed. How enriching this is, even though the one enriched may not be aware of the source of this eternal, mystical energy. The only goal is to let it be its wonderful self as much as you can.

This degree signifies the power of the imagination, and the truth that whatever our inner vision projects we eventually manifest – and will inevitably share with others.

Imagination can be a very passive thing, at worst falling prey to any negative thought forms it takes in. And so this degree has to be careful to maintain the purity that is symbolized by the unicorn, for the force of its imagination will most definitely have a powerful effect on others, for good or for ill, all depending on where the focus is placed. “

Well that is certainly a beautiful symbol. The Unicorn is a mythological creature who symbolizes the masculine single-pointed, awakened 3rd eye, or 6th sense, psyhic, pineal gland being open. The Unicorn is pure and can only be captured by a Virgin. She is also a symbol of purification, dedication, focus, renewal. 
The sign of the Virgin  is VIRGO
Hence we are back to Venus being totally synchronistically placed at this important New Moon.

Aquarius detachment prior Super Moon lunacy.

Moon is in Aquarius as of earlier today August 27.

The mood is definitely lighter and we have the ability to be detached, cool, and observe everything from a higher perspective. Aquarius is the sign of eccentricity, electrical energy, independence and revolution. You need to be with your tribe yang. 

INSPIRATIONAL DAILY CARD

Moon opposes Mars in Leo tonight PDT so party on dudes and then opposes Venus, Retro dudettes, early a.m. EDT and PDT. A night of detached passions. Otherwise a rather light Friday is ahead.
