Virgo Monday

It’s a very Virgo uptight, nitpicky Monday.

It is really HOT and humid here in SoCal, Venice Beach. I am on the 2nd floor, wide awake its 3:15 a.m. and too hot to sleep. I can hear Carole King singing Up On the Roof in my mind, like I used to hear it on hot sweltering nights when I was young. 

I’m stumped. I can’t really think of what I want to say and that’s unusual for me. Monday ain’t too bad although you always have to watch your P’s and Q’s  with a Virgo Moon.Moon is  busy tidying up. I mentioned the sextile to Mars in Cancer opposing Chiron in Pisces and sextiling Mercury in Cancer. as a great healing and communicating aspect.

also a difficulty quincunx from Moon with Uranus. 

don’t try any new fangled tech today. 

My Virgo South Node is double checking that I informed you of this info already right?

I do try dear readers to write something every day. I am also on Holiday and need to pick a new website template. My other older website is so old I may get the antique website award at this rate. 

I’m also thinking about Venus Retrograde with Saturn Retrograde, both highly personal planets from July 25-August 2nd. That 9 days will be very intense with many, many old relationships being tested.  

Uranus also turns Retrograde on the 26th {untill Christmas 2015} and then joins PLUTO, NEPTUNE, CHIRON, SATURN, VENUS and CERES apparently moving backwards. 

That’s a lot of backwards moving apparitions, more than usual at once. Some are personal some transpersonal, they have different nuances.

All I want for Christmas is a direct moving Uranus! 

The Uranian/Aquarian Retrograde makes it out with the old in with the new for sure. 

it’s exciting.

gotta go.

HAPPY PSYCHIC DAY six tips to activate your 6th sense

HAPPY PSYCHIC DAY Aug 4 everyone.

6th sense,psychic Tara Greene

 

Do you believe in psychic abilities? Ghosts? Telepathy? The unexplained? Woo-Woo? Other dimensions? UFO? Your dreams? It’s all real. TRY enhancing your own PSYCHIC abilities today.

I was born Psychic and aware of my past lives and multi-dimensional reality so to me everyday is Psychic day, all of it is real, I know that, it’s my experience. I also studied, Astrology, Tarot, pagan, meditation and have worked with spiritual teachers, shamans and my own guides and angels and have been a professional Psychic for twenty three years.

Psychics are one of the  most popular searches on the web. TV shows about mediums;  astrology and the Tarot for answers to divine the present and future, people are curious to expand their own awareness about everything metaphysical.

We are all naturally psychic. Weve been programmed by the church and mainstream culture to distrust that what we are naturally endowed with. If everyone listened to their own inner knowing experiencing and sensing, we wouldn’t  listen to outside authority. There is politics at work against being psychic. 

TIPS TO ACTIVATE YOUR OWN PSYCHIC SENSES 

Activate your 3rd eye, your 6th sense by tuning into it. Like any other “muscle” you do have to work it. 

1. MEDITATE 

Meditating every day is huge. It’s  an ancient tool used to empty the logical ego mind and to connect with higher realms, spirit guides, and everything in physical and non-physical form. Beginning to meditate for only 10 minutes a day at the same time is beneficial but takes time. Join Oprah and Deepak Chopra  for a world-wide meditation on 8 8 14 for free.

2. TRUST YOUR INSTINCTS

Learn to trust your gut instincts, usually your first impulse is correct. Stop listening to your logical mind all the time which tries to explain everything. Your inner sensing is more accurate than your eyes can see. 

3. Become and active DREAMER

Dreams are the clearest forms of ESP but speak a symbolic archetypal language. Many people dream of those who have died, and of future things. Dreams are your souls way of connecting you to other realms. Everyone dreams but they don’t remember. We live in the supernatural realms and the physical realms at the same time.

4. CLEANSE YOUR AURA

Keep your aura cleansed.. Negative entities do exist everywhere, there are energy vampires, and imprints of negative events. If you are dragged down by an emotional event, situation or place, learn to trust that “icky”feeling and to cleanse yourself or your intuitive energies will be dragged down. Wash your hands or shower physically or visually bathe yourself in white pure angelic light. Use incense or Smudge to cleanse your personal aura and space.

5. TALK TO YOUR GUARDIAN ANGELS

Everyone does have a guardian angel. Speak with them telepathically daily. Ask them for help.That is their job to watch out and care for you. Trust it. Ask for them to give you signs. 

6. SYNCHRONICITY

Watch for the signs that the Universe has your back and is directly connected to you and in  dialogue with you. Synchronicity is the interconnection of all things. Watch for repeat signs, symbols. You must be aware to see the signs and put pieces of the puzzle together. YOU do create your own reality.

Groundhog Day/ Imbolc/ St. Brigid’s feast, I got you babe Astrology

Groundhog Day Imbolc

Groundhog Day/   ST. Brigid’sDay Candlemas/Imbolc

Copyright 2002-2015 Tara Greene – All Rights Reserved

Feb. 1 and 2nd, We are half way to SPRING in Northern Hemisphere

Not  just I GOT YOU BABE for INFINITY but it’s a Traditional Irish and Pagan Holiday Celebrations

The song would more aptly be LIGHT MY FIRE- by the Doors, of course. 

Groundhog Day was and is celebrated in the Modern Irish Calendar as Saint Brigid’s Day,or Bride’s Day, both a Catholic and Pagan Celebration of an ancient Goddess tradition,.

Known as Imbolc to Wiccans/Pagans, Christians overlaid the Ancient Goddess worshipers’ holiday renaming it Candlemas or the fest of the Purification of the Virgin. This celebration also relates to the midpoint between Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox.

It is a “cross-quarter” day in the 8 rounds of the Wheel of Time in the Solar based year. Since the Celtic Year was based on both lunar and solar cycles, it is most likely the holiday would be celebrated on the Full Moon nearest those 2 midpoints, when early spring flowers would begin to rise and snakes would come out of the ground.

The SNAKE is the precursor of the Groundhog, which the Romans replaced with a Hedgehog, which we… On Feb. 2nd.


Ancient peoples of Ireland kept this day as very sacred. At the Megalithic and Neolithic sites in Tara, Ireland, the inner chambers of the passage tombs are perfectly aligned with the rising sun of both Imbolc and Samhain attesting to the value placed on this day.

Triple Goddess/Saint Brigid/Bride’s Sacred Day

In the Scottish Highlands where she was known as Bride, every morning the fire was kindled with an invocation to Bride:

“I will build the hearth
As Mary would build it.
The encompassment of Bride and of Mary
Guarding the hearth, guarding the floor,
Guarding the household all.”

The 10th-century Cormac’s Glossary states that Brigid was the daughter of the Dagda, the “Great God” of the Tuatha de Danaan – “woman of wisdom…a goddess whom poets adored, because her protection was very great and very famous.” Since poetry, filid, was interwoven with the aspects of divination, the vates, Brigid was seen as the inspiration behind divination and prophecy.

You can see Brigit above the south western door of the tower on Glastonbury Tor milking a cow.

INVOCATION TO SAINT BRIDE

“Dear Saint Bridget of the Kine
Bless these little fields of mine,
The pastures and the shady trees,
Bless the butter and the cheese,
Bless the cows with coats of silk
And the brimming pails of milk,
Bless the hedgerows, and I pray
Bless the seed beneath the clay,
Bless the hay and bless the grass,
Bless the seasons as they pass,
And heaven’s blessings will prevail,
Brigid – Mary of the Gael”

According to Robert Graves,she is the most Ancient Triple Goddess worshipped since time out of mind. The Goddess rules over scholars and poets. She is the Goddess of fire and inspirations in Ireland, the Goddess of poetry, creativity, smithcraft and healing. She also rules healing with water, and divination. She is said to rule over people who work with cows and chickens, brewers, fugitives, midwives, infants, printers, sailors, travelers, New Zealand, & Irish nuns.

This day symbolizes a time of transitions, initiations, new beginnings, of planting seeds that will sprout later. Brigid/Birgita represents the light half of the year,Her power brings the people out of the dark season of winter into spring, so, it is a very important time of the year.

She is the Goddess of Augury

In the Druidic tradition, poetry and augury were associated. She is patron of prophets and seers.

Celtic seers divined by looking into deep water and into flames. This is a great time to do divination.

Triple Goddess

She has two sisters with the same name. One aspect of her carries a blacksmith tongs and a sword, because she is also patroness of war; another aspect holds 2 healing snakes, from which the modern Doctor’s symbol is derived, the caduceus, the third aspect carries a wand with a crescent moon and a tablet.

Elements

Brigid rules the Waters. Many healing springs are dedicated to Brigid. Natural bodies of water also signify Her presence, particularly where three streams joined together. She also rules Fire, so it is customary to make candles for the coming year and bless them on this day.

Protecting Goddess

In her aspect as Brigantia, she carries a spear, an orb of victory, and wears a war crown. She symbolizes protection of the country from invaders and slavery.

Midwives

As Patroness of Midwives, she was invoked at the door of the home where the woman was giving birth, by the midwife. Who speke:

Bride, Bride, come in! Thy welcome is truly made, Give thou relief to the woman, And give thou the conception to the Trinity.

Brigid is the guardian of every newborn, their cradles protected with a woven Brigit’s Cross, an equal armed cross. Upon a safe delivery, the infant was blessed or “sained” by the midwife, with 3 drops of water on the child’s forehead, dedicating the Child to the Triple Goddess.

The “Holy Trinity” in its modernized Christian aspect, was just an overlay of the Goddess Triple Aspect since time out of memory. A candle was carried ‘round the bed sun wise three times. As Brigid is a Solar Goddess. We think of the Sun as masculine but originally all aspects of the Universe were considered Feminine.

Brigid Ruler of the Hearth

Especially in Gaelic Scotland, Brigid’s dolls are placed near the hearth on her Feast Day. The doll is usually dressed in white. A white wand is placed in her bed as a fertility charm. As she is patroness of agriculture, pastures, livestock, and abundance. An offering is made to her of dairy products. The Brigid doll is kept throughout the year near the hearth hung on a wall, or by a door, as a talisman of protection, then burnt the next year.

Light a Candle and Invoke the Goddess at this time-

I kindle this candle in the name of Brighid, Goddess of Smiths,

I sain this house in the name of Brighid, Goddess of Healers,

I smoor this candle in the name of Brighid, Goddess of Poets.

One folk tradition still continues in both Christian and Pagan homes on St. Brigid’s Day is that of St. Brigid’s Bed. Girls and young unmarried women create corn dollies to represent Brigid, these are adorned with ribbons, baubles shells or stones. A bed is made for the doll to lie in. On St. Brigid’s Eve Jan 31, the girls gather together in one house and stay up all night with the doll, are are later visited by all the young men, who ask permission to enter the home, and then treat the young maidens and the dolly with respect. The next day the girls carry the doll through the neighbourhood from house to house, where she is welcomed with great honour. Adult women stay home to welcome the Brigid procession and offer snacks and coins to the young girls and maidens.

Brigid is said to walk the earth on Imbolc eve. Feb 1st. Before going to bed, each member of the household may leave a piece of clothing or strip of fabric outside for Brigid to bless. The cloth are brought inside the next morning, believed to now have the powers of healing and protection.

BRIGID is alive and well.

The name “Britain” is a derivation of Brigit’s name. Britain was named for an ancient Celtic tribe, the Brigantes, who were the largest Celtic tribe in the country in pre-Roman times who worshipped Her as their Deity.

The tribe originated from an area now called Bregenz in Austria near Lake Constance. The word “brigand” comes from this tribe of fierce warriors. Her symbol is a flaming spear. Her worship spread, leaving behind places named in Her honour-Brittany in France, Brechin in Scotland, the name Brent, in England, any name containing Bride.

Britain’s symbol, the Goddess Brigantia, still found on their 50 cent coin is Brigid in her aspect as Goddess of the Land. In Old German/Yiddish the word “Fabrent” meaning burnt, honours this Ancient Goddess.

Britney Spears is carrying the modern archetypal literal name of Brigid, and strangely enough one of Brigid’s symbols is a flaming spear!

So whats the cosmic weather really like for V day 2011?

the heavens above on Valentine's Day 2011

Heaven on valentine's day 2011

The MOON governs the overall reigning feelings emotions memories and instincts of any day.

This V day in additon to all the romantic hype will be replete with high emotions moods and very sentimental with the Moon in Cancer. Be sure to go to a homey comfort food place for dinner or cook yourself at home. Cancer Moon likes traditional, and the way to a Cancer moon’s valentine’s heart is through the stomach. Apple pie of course just like Mom made it.

Cancer mOon opposite Pluto in Capricorn at 6 degrees, wow this changes it up. Pluto demoted or no is POWER, SEX, SECRETS, kinky,atomic, underworldly,totally nihilistic indulgences,the death and resurrection show! so Mom vs. all the things she forbade you to do in tantalizing opposition. First we’ll play house nice and then we’ll mess it up under the rug…  whatever your fancy desires! 

VENUS planet ruling LOVE, ROMANCE, women is at 12 degrees of capricorn also still opposite the MOON and conjunct Pluto. so sexy intense, passionate, jealous, steamy, lots of Victoria’s secret lingerie, dark raw chocolate till spread all over, oodles of roses till they almost sell out  the entire planet. Venus in Capricorn though is all business, so buy your favourite femme fatale something practical, tweedy even, for work, she can double deal in the daily grind,not just the bump and.

Venus Squares Jupiter in Aries so things will move along very quickl, dive right in, dont be shy.

Pluto forms a tense T-square with  Retrograde Saturn in Libra and that Cancerian quickly moving Moon. Tense, intense, take her out to a Moroccan  Egyptian or Middle eastern restaraunt. a bit of humour..again crying and or at least reminiscing over past lovers may come up during the evening inspite of your best efforts.

MARS? what about the planet ruling the male gender and  libidos in general? Mars is cozied up to and sandwiched conjunct the Sun in Aquarius along with Mercury at 17 degrees and Neptune at 28 degrees of Aquarius, still wide but connected to Chiron the wounded healer at Zero degrees of Pisces.

Mars in breezy Aquarius is easy going humanitarian, love the one your with, he’ll buy you a save the polar bears, whales, indiginous peoples, raw milk or planetary  something for Valentine’s day. That’s a good thing too!  A bit detached, quick moving, freedom loving, inventive- new positions? tech-y gifts? how romantic you say. He’ll let you think it was your idea.

Mars conjunct Neptune-divinely romantic, full of poetry, art, fine wine, soul mates sparkly eyeballing are the vibes. Be carefull not to drink to excess with Mars and Neptune connected it could be too easy. Judgement will be cloudy, remember that he/she may seem like your soul survivor today and the total opposite tomorrow but hey.. youve got nothing else to loose. Chiron here indicates fragile hearts beneath that cool Aquarian, texty, smooch, hipster of the mo exterior, so dont be surprised when the mask falls with the underwear..

And remember by Wedenesday the Moon will swagger into Leo and the entire emotional picture will have changed.

Live everyday as if it were Valentine’s day…

I am here to help guide you with the Romance Astrology star crossed lovers department if it does work out and I hope it does. -have agood one.

 Feb 15 is called Nirvana Day by the way.
