MLK, we can be heroes just for one day Astrology

Jan 18  Mars in SCORPIO trine Neptune in PISCES is spiritual warrior energy;

” I,I wish i could swim, like the dolphins” – first line of David Bowie’s song Heroes. 

the GRAND EARTH TRINES of SUN conjunct MERCURY Retrograde in Capricorn, Pluto is also nearby on the sidelines, in trine to the Taurus MOON and JUPITER Retrograde in Virgo  from 18-27+ degrees

Grounds our Sol/identities/ our minds/consciousness with our gut instincts, our yearning for beauty and our grounded emotions with our intelligence and higher analytical abilities to be of service. 

There is almost a Water Trine too, if you have planets at 8 degrees water then you get a Grand Water Trine.

Canada’s Sun is at 8 degrees CANCER.

My country was just Branded as Hip/cool not only for its long chilly winters by the New York Times recently. Canada’s economy is in a bit of hot water at the moment but we will ride it out. 

That’s a very POTENT COCKTAIL of spiritual and practical warrior energies which can turn any of us into modern Marvel comic like Super Heroes and heroines in our own lives as well as for others.  Are you up for the mission?  I had to use a pic of Iron Man, Mars is made of iron, that’s why it’s red. 

Super hero, iron man, tara Greene

Superhero Tony Stark/ Iron Man/ Robert Downy Jr. 

It’s also Martin Luther King’s anniversary birthday. He was a super hero who started with a dream, a Pisces dream. Use this day as inspiration for you to follow and build your dream. 

Use this Mars Neptune trine energy and so much groundedness to focus on the mystical realms, psychic, telepathic, 6th sense, occult, metaphysical studies,witchy pastimes and spells, wishes and deep desire. Read learn discover. 

Mars trine Neptune is also great for actors artists and any creative endeavour. You will be inspired and be able to draw down the highest spiritual energies today.

BUT DO BE CAREFUL if you are prone to addictions. Mars/ Neptune in Pisces is also notorious for drug addicts, alcoholics,and self-destruction, delusion/illusion, religious fanaticism.  

I already wrote about the sexual fantasy aspects of this .This too good trine energy can also fuel Terrorist-Mars- attacks. I hope not.

HEROES- DAvid Bowie 

 

 

Face the music, Venus Saturn conjunction square Neptune

I’ve always adored musicals. The Big old classic Busby Berkeley tap dancing American 30’s -50’s ones.  The glitz, the glamour, the illusions, the dreamy happy endings. I watched them with my Dad all the time. Some of my Dad’s family had been in vaudeville. They were dancers and musicians. My Great Aunt Mary was a lead chorus girl at the Royal Alex Theatre on Front Street in Toronto in the 20’s called “Mary Rose.” Her friend George White asked her to run off to New York to try to dance on Broadway. She didn’t go. He did and became very famous. The George White Scandals was the competition for the Ziegfeld Follies. Aunt Mary was friends with Beatrice Lily, they had a vaudeville act together. My Dad had always wanted to be a professional dancer. He was an incredible dancer, I remember watching him,he was pretty talented, but he had a birth defect on his ear and that kept him from being in the spotlight. I took dancing lessons seriously from the time I was 5 for 10 years. Oh to be able to dance like the stars.

Musicals Steve Martin, Astrology Tara Greene

Scene from Pennies From Heaven with Steve Martin, Bernadette Peters, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rodgers.

I finally watched this old film that I had wanted to watch for while. I used to love it years ago.  Pennies From Heaven, 1981, stars Steve Martin, his then girlfriend, Bernadette Peters and an awesome dance performance from Christopher Walken is an original and very strange, heavy, modern musical which incorporates those old Fred Astaire, Ginger Rodgers  numbers seamlessly .

 I just realized the movie is the perfect mirror for the present Venus/ Saturn conjunction in Sagittarius with Neptune squaring them from PISCES throughout 2016.

As a Triple Sagittarius I like to accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative and don’t mess with Mr. In between. 

But, Saturn, even in Sagittarius is no laughing matter.  Saturn will sober you up. 

VENUS symbolizes human love, the imperfectly beautiful glorious hunk of clay love. The energy ball of stardust held together with blood pumping from a heart full of rhythm. Venus’s metal is copper, that is pennies. 

Venus conjunct Saturn is the everyday down to earth, morning breath, bills, farting, boredom, tedium of everyday romance. Saturn is longevity.  

NEPTUNE symbolizes Heaven. The Ideal, spiritual love, unconditional love, dream lovers. Neptune’s soul mate love is beyond any ego needs. It is totally unselfish love given from a Source of unbounded unlimited love, expecting nothing in return. This is read my mind, telepathic, totally psychic, synched in love. Neptune’s love is the highest vibration, it is Light as Love, it is eternal, infinite. Neptune is escapism, denial, fantasy, illusion, addictions, martyrdom. Neptune governs Hollywood,films, music, creativity. 

SATURN symbolizes reality which has a definite beginning and end. Saturn is the underlying structure of the third dimension. Saturn is the school of hard knocks. It is a hard day’s night, the dark night of the soul, the trials of being human, getting old, failing, death.  

I haven’t seen this movie in God knows how many years and I’d forget how heavily Saturnine it is. It’s so Romantically Venusian and dreamily Neptunian as well. It was adopted from a British series. Steve Martin plays Arthur Parker, the anti-hero, who is a dreamer who wishes reality were like those super romantic songs like Pennies From Heaven. His real life is shit; he is a loser, a liar, a sex obsessed, delusional infantile man. The movie constantly shifts from the hard Saturn to the Hollywood Glamour. Bernadette Peters plays his  mistress/ lover. She is very feminine, sexy, uninhibited and truly a Venus love goddess in the flesh. 

No spoilers. Film Critic Pauline Kael said. “Pennies from Heaven is the most emotional movie musical I’ve ever seen. It’s a stylized mythology of the Depression which uses the popular songs of the period as expressions of people’s deepest longings – for sex, for romance, for money, for a high good time…there was never a second when I wasn’t fascinated by what was happening on the screen.” The real versus the unreal. It’s perfectly crafted to mirror these energies which we are under now. 

Watch it. It isn’t an easy film to watch. Let me know what you think. 

P.S. Steve Martin, who is a genius and who I have adored for many years, was born August 14, 1945 in Waco Texas at 5:54 a.m. Steve has a Natal Venus Saturn conjunction in Cancer, straddling Sirius, the U.S. Sun. Venus is square to his Neptune in Libra. I kid you not, I checked on this after I wrote this.

Pennies From Heaven 1981

 

 

Virgo Love-in, New 11:11 GPS.

VENUS conjuncts the NORTH NODE 8/8 15 at zero degrees LIBRA, her home sign..

Venus will be in her home sign of LIBRA until December 4.

This is the Last Hurrah for LIBRA North Node for the next 3 days. Venus sends it off with a big kiss.

This is one of the four major CARDINAL POINTS in the Zodiac.  The North Node has been hovering over this point for awhile, since mid-september. For the last 18 months we have had the North Node in Libra and working on diplomacy, finding balance. peace-keeping, relationship issues have been the main sign post. There have been many break-ups over this time period as well as Libra is a feminine ruled sign and women are re-evaluating their relatonships. 

We are entering a whole New Virgo phase on November 11th, 11:11, Remembrance Day and on a New Moon. I find it significant that our highest spiritual goal, the North Node, will be guiding us for the next 18 months begins with the 11:11 symbolism. This is about remembering who you really are.

11:11 meaning Tara Greene Tarot reading

The North Nodes always move backwards in the Zodiac.

I will write about the New Moon in Scorpio in more detail.

The New GPS cycles starts on 11:11 in PDT @ 5:02 pm / 8:02 pm  EDT. Nov. 12 in U.T.

Do you see 11:11 all the time? It symbolizes a pre-encoded memory trigger it is a conscious gateway. Created by Solara it was one of the first world-wide meditation events in 1992.  Not just for making wishes on. It is meant to help you remember who you really are. To make you conscious.

The North Node is our highest spiritual goal and what the collective needs to evolve towards, it’s what we all need to aim for. We will be following the Virgo carrot  for these next 18 months.

Virgo keywords: ANALYSIS, HEALTH, WORK, DISCIPLINE, SERVICE, ACCOUNTABILITY, ENVIRONMENTAL and CRITICISM.

The SOUTH NODE is our past,the karmic black hole of unconsciousness. It sucks us back into our past. The PISCES SOUTH NODE is very SPIRITUAL, but can also be ADDICTIONS, DENIAL, DREAMY, DELUSIONS, religious fanatics, GLAMOUR, Co-Dependence and can be dangerous. 

I use the True Node which is an exact motion for these empty focal points in space. Other Astrologers use the Mean Node which is averaged out for rates of motion. The Mean Nodes  changed about a month ago. Either way they are in close proximity and for the next 18 months.

Gotta love those Virgos. If you are a Virgo this is a huge year for you. Virgo’s need to come out from their work desks and live a little this year. Get that raise, go on a trip, have fun. Without Virgo’s who would do our taxes? Keep everything neat and tidy? Be faithful servants? Worry so much? Analyze everything? Virgo’s are our health professionals, dietitians, naturopaths, herbalists, pharmacists, lab technicians, engineers, clean-freaks, community servers. They get the work done.

Virgo is an intellectual earth sign. They take all of Gemini’s curiosity and give it form. Virgo’s love information, reading, and often have photographic memories. They also make good editors with their natural eye for detail. VIrgo is ruled by MERCURY, a dual, hermaphrodite sign. There will be lots of transexual health issues and workplace equality as well will be in the news. 

With all this Virgo energy we all need  to be connecting with the earth. it is good for us to walk in nature. Virgo spends a lot of their time in their heads. Virgo is practical reality. Being present.

The South Node in Pisces is what we have to be vigilant we aren’t sucked into, like reality TV shows, they are not real. Idolizing Hollywood stars, rock or rap stars is largely manufactured to keep you away from noticing what is going on in your real life. PISCES has no boundaries, they are the martyrs of the Zodiac, and this is not healthy. Pisces is very charitable and compassionate and that is good, but healthy boundaries and separation of self and others is vital. Pisces is passive, hides from harsh reality, gets lost in video games, porn,religion,dreams and fantasy. Pisces is addictions, alcoholism, pot smoking all the time, sex, shopping, ayahuasca tourism, yoga, or gym workouts, Bible thumpers, health nuts and morphing into different identities. All of these aspects are in denial of who you really are at Source.  We need to move out of this  projection that something “out there” will make us feel whole or safe us. We need to  get onto the real work of cleaning up our very material messes. 

DIETS

Virgo’s  also have delicate digestive systems and need to watch their diets. The emphasis will be on healthy wholesome foods, No GMO’s, gluten-free, no fast foods. There will be strong legislation to make all foods healthier and towards old-fashioned home-made slow foods. 100 mile foods. Gut awareness, digestive enzymes, probiotic and newer super-foods will be more mainstream. Virgo symbolizes the harvest, the end of the plant cycle. The awareness of the entire cycle for food, from seeds, to organic foods, no toxic pesticides, and land stewardship will be seen as an entire process. 

Had your guts been acting up with Mars and Venus in Virgo? Mine has the last few days. I have my South Node in Virgo. 

The Pluto in Virgo Generation should be mentioned here as well.. This is largely GENERATION X.

Born August 19,1957-Oct. 5 1971, And  April 17, 1972 -July 30, 1972. They are  58-43 years old. The  youngest just having gone through their mid-life crises.  All of this generation is benefitting from Jupiter’s jog through Virgo from Aug 2015 -September 9, 2016. 

 Born after the huge baby-boomers Pluto in Leo generation its all about ME. The Pluto in Virgo Generation is supposed to be cleaning up the mess. Are they? They will need to start.

And those born in the mid-60’s during the URANUS PLUTO CONJUNCTION in mid-Virgo with Saturn in Pisces opposite that will also be awoken as the NOrth NOde passes those trigger degrees in June 2016. 

Lets get some images of this first symbol degree and the next 10. 

The symbol for the last degree of VIRGO 30-20th degree , the last decan of Virgo 

10 of Discs/coins/pentacles

10 of pentacles, Tarot Tara Greene

The Philosopher’s Stone Tarot 

The 10 of DISKS/PENTACLES/COINS is material wealth, completion of life’s spiritual lessons in matter. It radiates harmony. It is like a treasure chest of jewels. The Number 10 related tour 10 fingers and 10 toes. This card symbolizes a completion and fulfillment of the 10 Sephirot on the Tree of Life, brought down from the Highest Archetypal Levels of Kether {1} to the fundamental material world of Malkuth [ 10}. 

Meditate with this cards’ energy. It governs the collective Psyche to the beginning of May 2016 when the North Node enters the 2nd decan of Virgo.
