Moon conjuncts Chiron in Pisces

Vulnerability, over sensitivity and psychic enhancing dreamy energies, overtake us. Use this energy to meditate visualize and curl up into a fetal position.

Moon enters Aries and a whole new emotional cyle begins.4:44 pm PST/ 7:44 pm EST/ Dec. 16 @ 12:44 am GMT

Aries Moon trine Mercury in Sagittarius @ 10:48 pm PST/ Dec. 16 @ 1:48 am EST/ 6:48 am GMT

Fresh new optimistic ideas are spawned. Your brain is spontaneously ready to go. Finding someone to communicate with is easy tonight.

December 16

Firey energy abounds a good time to get a lot of things started.

VENUS in Scorpio sextiles SATURN in Capricorn in the morning

Serious hangovers, repercussions and responsibilities arise. Deep insights about your Dad, boss or another authority figure arise. Make long-term goals motivated by what your soul desires the most. Disciplined love is what’s on the menu.

Aries Moon trines Jupiter in Sagittarius

Get out and so something physical. Hit the gym, run, do marshall arts or play competitive sports. The mood is good-humored. Seek new avenues for hobbies. Plan travels for 2019. 

Aries Moon squares Saturn in Capricorn

Curb your enthusiasm, literally. Spontaneous seriousness. Start a new career with mature goal pressures. Use that new inspired energy to harness and structure a startup. 

Aries Moon inconjuncts Venus in Scorpio

Sexual desire- Venus in Scorpio and the urge for power and the need to be free don’t mesh. Manipulating others will meet with big resistance.

Mars in Pisces sextiles Pluto in Capricorn in PST/ Dec. 17 in EST and GMT

Mars and Pluto both rule Scorpio this is a deeply cathartic energy. Have compassion for those who need to be in control and in power in the world. Use the psychic sensitivity of Mars in Pisces to understand why the need to dominate is so strong. As you look you will see that all tyrants are insecure people underneath. Or use this energy to build a long-term discipline and spiritual goal. Elder teachers may appear to bring new insights.

Have a great weekend.

Mars in Pisces pray for Smart Compassion

While Mars is in Pisces November 15- December 31
This almost 7-week transit brings a very big opportunity for compassion for ourselves and others,
Testimony Napoleon Brousseau art, Tara Greene astrology

“Testimony” by Napoleon Brousseau Oil painting Collection of Jamie Angell of Angell Gallery Toronto

“Compassion asks us to go where it hurts, to enter into the places of pain, to share in brokenness, fear, confusion, and anguish. Compassion challenges us to cry out with those in misery, to mourn with those who are lonely, to weep with those in tears. Compassion requires us to be weak with the weak, vulnerable with the vulnerable, and powerless with the powerless. Compassion means full immersion in the condition of being human. ~Henri J.M. Nouwen
There are two types of compassion. Idiot compassion and smart compassion.
What is”Idiot compassion”?

while it sounds very odd and “blamey” the term originated from Tibetan Buddhist teacher Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, Pema Chodron and my own root guru Namgyal Rinpoche https://www.namgyal.ca/ talked about this. It is a form of co-dependency. It is also very much built into ideas about romantic love. Idiot compassion “refers to something we all do a lot of and call it compassion. In some ways, it’s what’s called enabling. It’s the general tendency to give people what they want because you can’t bear to see them suffering.” Chodron exposes the danger in this: instead of offering a friend medicine, bitter though it may be when ingested, you feed them more poison. ” https://rethinkingreligion-book.info/buddhists-dont-have-to-be-nice-avoiding-idiot-compassion/

What is smart compassion?
This is a very hot topic these days. As victims of sexual abuse and rape find their strength to admit what happened to them, many victims buy into the Christian and spiritual “New Age” belief that you should thank and forgive your perpetrators. It is only truly most important to forgive yourself for any shame or self-blame, as you were innocent. The victim must thoroughly hold that wounded child and re-mother and reparent them with unconditional love through the Great Mother/Father God/dess, until they feel healed and whole, an ongoing process. It is wise to let go of the emotional ties to the perpetrator and not be stuck in that horrible wound to free oneself.  Simply pray for the perpetrators healing for one’s own sanity and to move on with the strength and wisdom gained from a terrible experience. In New Age thought thanking the perpetrator for abusing you so that you could have this experience is a popular notion. This idea keeps fueling, aiding and abetting all abusers and abusive cultural “norms” unconsciously and consciously. It keeps a co-dependent relationship going -can’t be abused without an abuser. While this is true, those who have been abused need to solely become their own rescuer as no one can do it but themselves. The abuser is wholly responsible for their own actions which they will have to deal with through their own karma. It’s not the job of the abused to do so at all.
The abused only need to become consciously aware enough to see and feel their own unconscious patterns which have been passed down through DNA through generation after generation of sexual, emotional and spiritual abuse by the hierarchy and religions of the Patriarchy. It is a lineage that has gone on for thousands of years. But now- enough is enough. 
Also while Mars is in Pisces it will bring rain to help stop the fires, But that brings with it the possibility of mudslides. So lets pray for exactly the outcome we want. This much rain, no or minimal mudslides. 
We must be compassionate with ourselves.
SUN trines Chiron in Pisces  November 20
Embrace your soul emotional body and ability to hit the depths of the depths and know that this is part of the reconnaissance mission to resurrect yourself. Be kind to yourself and others.

Today’s healing tsunami for the soul

Nov 16 There’s a SCORPIO HEALING tsunami like we’ve rarely seen washing our souls deep karmic wounds clean. 

Venus in Scorpio trines Neptune in Pisces @ 11 degrees of deep waters.

It’s a beautiful romantic spiritual magical idealistic La La Land come true energy. You will be in love with Love. 

The SUN trines Chiron in Pisces to provide world Soul healing.

Make big wishes for the oceans for all the hearts and all the souls. Send blessings and compassion from your heart chakra out to the universe and breathe it back in. A truly awesome day. Do meditate, be creative, sing, chant, Dance. Make love. It’s very high tantric energy for transmuting old karmic wounds.

More details here:

The Scorpio Sun moves into a deep trine with Chiron the shaman healer in Pisces @ 24 degrees on the 16th @ 7:48 am PST/ 10:48 am EST/ 3:48 pm GMT.

“Instead of asking ourselves, “How can I find security and happiness?”
We could ask ourselves, “Can I touch the center of my pain?
Can I sit with suffering, both yours and mine, without trying to make it go away?
Can I stay present to the ache of loss or disgrace…disappointment in all its many forms…and let it open me?” This is the trick.
~ Pema Chödrön~Excerpted from: Practicing Peace in Times of War, pages 68–69

Scorpio Sun is the great router the great detective of Soul. The fearless one who bravely goes to Hades in search of the mysteries; the treasures of embracing death, rebirth and transformation.

Use the deathless place to view ones karmic wounds from a transpersonal dimension. A higher octave of compassion is available now. A soothing balm for ancient wounds crying out to be healed so that the soul can re-merge with source, with the ocean of bliss.

Sun trine Chiron In PIsces astrology Tara Greene

Drawing by Napoleon Brousseau 1991

If you are feeling vulnerable overly sensitive wounded and weary now. Please understand that the ego defences needs to get ground down in order for those deep wounds to open more fully to receive the unconditional love from years wept in rage, in anger, in defending the truth of your soul.

Be brave, be strong, you were made for these times. We are all in this together. This is A rebirthing of the divine feminine. We are midwifing ourselves and each other. Rising from the tsunami cleansed pure whole and looking forward to stepping into a new life.

We are being healed by our emotional bodies now. Renewed by source. Drink deep. Drink well.

As Chiron finish its sojourn in Pisces a 50 year cycle is being completed. Chiron enters Aries in 2018 and a new fire is sparked. A spontaneous form of healing. Healed by fire.

One of my predictions for 2018. Fire-walking makes a comeback.

The SUN was also squaring the North Node at 19 degrees SCORPIO/LEO

there was some major light force working in our favour.

Pluto conjuncts JUNO @ 17 degrees CAPRICORN

The feminine form of GENIUS has just joined forces with PLUTO’s transformation of the corporate world. You notice that right? The #MeToo revolution is in full swing bringing the patriarchy down. And not a minute too soon.

The 150 degrees aspect makes for difficult communications. Mercury in Sagittarius always aims for the truth. Uranus in Aries may be too spontaneous impatient and renegade to hear or speak the truth.

The VIRGO moon keeps us grounded. It would be good to get out in nature. Moon squares MERCURY in SAGITTARIUS. keep conversations practical. You can let a lot of maintenance things done today and off your list.

Numerology guidance 2016, completion, #9

With all the negativity, fear, anger, racism, misogyny, white supremacy, blaming, bombings and demonstrations going on not just in America but all over the world. I feel we need to turn to the Numerology symbol and base number for 2016 for wisdom and advice now. The Hermit, Tarot Arcana #9.The Hermit Tarot Tara Greene

The Alchemical Tarot 

2016 is governed by the symbol of The Hermit. The number 9 is a symbol of completion. Nine is a magical number which always reduces to itself. The Hermit is associated with the Astrology sign of VIRGO, the 6th sign, of earth, mutability, discipline, health, accounting and work, budgets, economics, harvest, food,  health, digestion, frugality, perfectionism, and worry. 

The HERMIT in itself, is a mysterious figure, traditionally shown as a hooded sage or wisdom seeker.  Hermist were religious seekers in all religions, Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam -Sufism and Taoism, living an ascetic form of life. The Hermit is solitary, living alone secluded in the woods, a cave, crossing the desert as Jesus did for 40 days, or Superman who had his Fortress of Solitude, or anyone seeking  inner wisdom, and new perspectives of the heart and soul. The Hermit symbolizes the quest for inner wisdom. 

Periodically we need to take time out, to ground ourselves. To seek within for the answers as we know the end of a cycle is ending.  We have been living under the Hermit’s light and influence all of this year which is quickly drawing to a close. We can see the themes that the Hermit has brought up to our awareness. 

The Hermit always holds up a lamp. The lamp shines in the darkness, it gives us comfort, security, protection and guidance. The lamp is a symbol of the Inner light that the Hermit possesess. This archetypal figure can be seen as an outer guide holding up the light of hope and faith { Virgo is the opposite pole to Pisces}  guiding us out of the darkness when we feel lost, clueless, alone, rejected and abandoned. 

To be alone is a powerful initiation, to learn to be able to live by oneself, to learn to trust and be self sustaining and mature is part of the Hermit’s lessons. Being alone and learning to like one’s own company is a prime spiritual practice and necessary to having an honest well balanced love relationship. If you are afraid to be alone, you must face that shadow that fear. What are you afraid of? YOu need to ask yourself these questions and learn to be strong. In an overly busy distracting world of constant information, the need to go within and tune all that racket out is more important than ever, This is the whole point of doing yoga, to find the inner silence and the inner light.

The dark is the place of all birthings, all creativity, it is the void, the emptiness of the mind which the Mercury Ruled Hermit is seeking. We need to go into the the dark as a source of nourishment and security. We all lived in the dark in our mother’s wombs before being born into this world. It is the place where you felt the most secure, loved, cared for, and closest to spirit. 

Years ago I did an amazing experiential workshop on Tarot which was led by a British born, physicist, 32nd degree Mason and student of the Venerable Namgyal Rinpoche, the first Westerner to be recognized by the Dalai Lama. In the 3 day intensive workshop we experiences each of the 22 archetypes of the Major Arcana. I particularly remember the Hermit. The workshop was held in the country at a rustic Buddhist retreat centre.  We were outside in the forest at night. The Hooded figure of the Hermit appeared with his candle lit lamp to light our way. It was a very touching scene. I felt the Hermit to be silent, wise, benevolent and his lamp light to be a source of real protection.

So go within now to find stability, new direction and to find the answers. If you don’t find what you seek within you will never find it without. The Lamp is your own inner wisdom, you always have it lit. It is your spirits life force, the soul’s burning passion to be alive. Listen to your body’s wisdom as well. Be humble, do the practical things that need to be done. 

This is a year of completion. Finish off what you started 9-10  years ago in 2007, the last #9 year.  

2017 is a universal #1 year. The MAGICIAN, the symbol of Mercury. A dualistic sign, everything will be new again. 2008 was a number 1 year as well. The market had a huge crash back then. Think about sowing seeds of magical thoughts and intentions for the next 9 year cycle, till 2025 which will be a huge huge shift in the world’s consciousness. I’ll write about 2017 soon, I’m still meditating on it.
