Trickster Black Friday

November 23 the GEMINI Full Moon occurs in EDT and GMT

A Gemini/Sagittarius polarity mirroring show day. I know its Black Friday. Do be careful as Mercury is Retrograde its more of a Trickster Black Friday! You may have to return a lot of what you buy and sales may be final.

This such a typical GEMINI mirror image day with Moon in Gemini opposite Sagittarius SUN.

The aftermath of the turkey deluge in American for their Thanksgiving may be a war of words and politics as the Gemini Moon opposes Jupiter Sagittarius { and Pisces} ruler.

Its very hard to hold your tongue this year, if you thought these last two years of polarity and tongue lashing were strong. 2018-2019 will be bigger more boisterous heated and funny. Humour is always a great weapon. 

The tongue-lashing battle continues between good cop/bad cop with feelings being held in and hurt. as Gemini Moon squares Mars in PISCES

Older family members may be seriously bent out of shape as the Moon inconjuncts Saturn in Capricorn

You may have to step back from the Patriarch of the household and pretend you didn’t know Wtf you were saying

Push me- pull you as the Gemini Moon opposes Retro Mercury in Sagittarius

Old disputes may come up as words are slammed back and forth like a ping-pong game. do this with wit and humor is the best.

Lastly you may need to turn to your distraction, addiction, escape of choice to recover as the Gemini Moon squares Neptune in PISCES.

This is a bit of a preview of the Jupiter Neptune square that will be going on all of 2019 but felt right at the end of the year,

Hope you are ok. The weekend promises a lot of goodies

More soon.

SUN is in SAGITTARIUS @ 7:25 am PST/10:25 am EST

Here’s to you wise Sage’s. Those who must use their horse-sense. 

Sagittarius loves philosophy, metaphysics, history, mythology, religion, politics, sports, the military, justice, the law, higher spiritual masters, TRUTH, teaching, traveling, humor and jumping on their soap boxes.

Wise Fiery SAGES it’s our turn to shine.

I must say I am really hot to trot with teaching, inspiring, yakking away in my hoof in mouth fashion these days. All this Sagittarius energy is invigorating. 

SAGITTARIUS SOAPBOX  time for the next 13 months.

Remember that Jupiter will be squaring Neptune 3 times in 2019 one of the major transits of the year. A big signature. Its a big year for Sagittarians and Pisces, all mutable signs will feel it most.

Gemini Full Thanksgiving Moon

Full Moon perfects on Thanksgiving in the U.S.November 22 @ 9:39 pm PST November 23 @ 12:39 am EST/ November 23 @ 5:39 am GMT at 0 degrees Gemini

Sun enters Sagittarius November 22 @ 1:01 am PST/ 4:01 am EST/ 9:01 am GMT

This Gemini Full Moon, governed by Mercury Retrograde is a Moon contrary to Bob Dylan’s famous advice “Don’t Look back” this is the perfect time to look backwards MOON. Also known as Beaver, Oak or Frosty moon by indigenous tribes in North America.

Gemini is the Sign of the Lovers in the tarot. Mercury is the Card #1 The Magician 

The Magician is the trickster and prankster and he will attempt to trip you up playing mind games.

Mercury Retro at 10 degrees is squared by a very slow, virtually melting Neptune turning Direct on the 24th adding a dreamy, nostalgic, oozy, difficulty with boundaries sticky as a thanksgiving pudding energy.  If your family is co-dependent, alcoholic or otherwise addictive prone and you can’t avoid it just be like a real Pisces and pretend you’re just like them for the holiday. But keep your Jupiter Captain America shields up as Jupiter the ruler of the newly born Sagittarius Sun is conjunct to is.  Humour is also a great weapon.

Mars in Pisces is also squaring the Sun Jupiter and Mercury.

Yes, do look back but not in anger. This Mars is held in repressed anger and aggressiveness which could melt through iron if it was used properly. Be careful not to be like a cooked turkey stewing in your own juices. This aspect also makes it hard to figure out what is going on. Mars in Pisces is a warrior for Peace. Hum Ohms under your breath if you must. 

North Node at the 29th degree of Cancer is in a Grand Cardinal Cross

squaring Venus in Libra and Uranus and Eris in Aries and Vesta in Capricorn conjunct the South Node

The evolutionary way of the collective is to return to Cancer the sign of the Divine Mother, to clean up our oceans and to flow with our emotions; to honor women, children first, and the family in whatever form that is. Home is very important to and we must establish emotional safety nurturing nourishment and safety for all. 

The North Node and Chiron in Pisces are in a supportive trine for healing on very deep soul levels. Ancient oceans of tears facilitate the karmic purging of millions of wombs abused by rape for thousands of years which are experiencing deep cleansing now as an outpouring and receiving of unconditional Love for and from the Great mother returns to heal us all.

Finger of God/dess points to this Full Moon
CERES the Great Mother in Scorpio creates a Yod or Finger of God/dess with Saturn in Capricorn to the Newly Born Full Moon.

This Full Moon new birth Gemini Moon is disabled by Mercury being Retrograde and in a Debilitating Sign 

We will all be somewhat feeling wounded,disabled, under a heavy Saturnin yoke and at least tongue-tied. Do not discuss politics at the Dinner table.

Ceres at 4 Scorpio squares LILITH at 12 Aquarius trigger the eclipse degrees from the January 31st 2018 Full Moon Lunar eclipse at 11 degrees LEO

Ceres and Lilith are the archetypal “mother/whore split” that the patriarchy has developed inhibiting judging and controlling women’s full expression of their innately much stronger and laster longing libido than men’s. Issues about Female Genital Mutilation and Sharia law will be in the news. Lilith is very powerful right now and her electric Aquarius energy is empowering women to break free of thousands of years of sexual suppression. This is not just the #MeToo movement, we can see this happening all over the world.

Nadia Murad, a former ISIS Yazidi sex slave was just awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Denis Mukwege, a Congolese surgeon who treats victims of rape, also won the honor. 

A Full moon is always a completion but the Gemini paradox is this is a looking back and reflecting time for new ideas, new ways of communicating and new ways to see polarization not as an opposition but as a union.

Happy Thanksgiving to my family of wonderful American cousins some in the U.S. some in other parts of the world, my good friends and clients. 

We always have so much to be grateful for.  Black Friday is a consumer tsunami. I know its a boon for shops and most people do their holiday shopping this day. be careful.

One step forward,Venus Direct, then Mercury Redux

November 16 Venus turns direct today. The blessed day is finally here.The backwards-looking re-evaluating “Underworld” 42 period is over. So many relationships blew apart, so much heartbreak. 

Venus Direct astrology love Tara Greene

Venus turns Direct in Libra
lets talk about love

Now we must retrace our heart steps back from Libra to Scorpio {-Venus re-enters Scorpio on December 2nd}  to our souls deepest desires until December 18 until Venus bypasses 10+ degrees Scorpio where she went Retro and we can head out again into a fresh new love field. 

Give thanks to Venus for what you learned during this time. Reflect while Venus is still  Stationary for a couple of days. Let me know how you felt with Venus retrograde.

Meanwhile, Mercury also turns Retrograde on the 16th @ 13+ degrees Sagittarius

mercury Retrograde in Sagittarius Tara Greene astrology

This is conjunct to the GREAT ATTRACTOR aka ABELL 3627 is a huge  WTF knows what something that bends light and sucks in the Huge Virgo Cluster, the Hydra- Centaurus Supercluster and other groups and clusters for a clusterfuck of clusters which adds up to about 30 plus galactic buddies. 

If you have planets at that 13th degree  Sagittarius+ or minutes 5 degrees you will feel the giant retro mercury Great attractor suck the most.

One step ahead and two steps behind. 

The Trickster is already debilitated in Sagittarius. Mercury Retrogrades always appropriate the things they relate to in the sign. Expect travel to be a total nuisance. Makin plans for the holiday or traveling during American Thanksgiving. Foreign affairs shutdowns, long distance relationships screw-ups, texts go to the ex’s by mistake.  Judges, juries, court appearances, all legal matters, will be funky but not in a good way. Civil politics and education will see lots of yelling at each other and retracing of steps. Those ballots will just get more lost and loster from that recount which will need another recount. You get the drift.

All communications will be screwy. Sagittarius is the sign of truth and honesty so expect the bluntest of the blunt as Mercury will be retracing what he wanted to say but couldn’t at the time but now….

This may tie into repeated meeting with those lovers present and ex’s who you need to have that conversation with or tie up that conversation that never happened. 

Mercury retrograde’S aren’t all bad. Go over previously conquered territory. It’s good for writing projects, marketing, publishing, public speaking, asking questions, research, connecting with siblings and short journeys but expect there to be delayed.

Rethink redo repost renew review relax do all the Re-things. 

Remember all middle degrees/days of all Mutable signs are affected most directly. Gemini Virgo Sagittarius and Pisces. 

Mars has also just entered Pisces under the rulership of Jupiter now and Neptune in modern astrology. The two Mars and Jupiter will square each other on November 19th that’s a powerful punch of truth justice secrets spirituality inspiration a real breakthrough day.

October 7th Moon is Void of course until 6:10 pm PDT/ 9:10 pm EDT

more mayhem in the U.S. as the gender wars double down. The divisiveness is insane and Democrats and feminists are going crazy. The good news is Ford’s testimony has broken the shame game wide open irregardless of anything else. Whoever is behind this not divine plan is laughing all the way to the devil’s playground. 

SUN inconjuncts NEPTUNE today and yep the confusion inability to hear what the other is saying and feeling invisible is exactly what this energy is all about.  

You’re trying to stay focused on your relationships, and finding some balance but nothing is clear. If you are feeling lost know that it will pass.

The last lunar aspect today from Virgo Moon is an opposition to Chiron in Pisces at the 29th degree making it all feel more painful. You will be feeling the wounds of the world. Compassion is important.

Moon enters Libra in the evening.  Try to find some balance as Moon inconjuncts URANUS- good luck with that. Breathe pace walk run, punch pillows. Breathe.

Aquarius Blood Moon Lunar eclipse Meditation

By Alfredo Garcia, Jr (Shared by photographer [1]) [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons

Aquarius Full Blood Moon-Mars Retro Lunar eclipse is symbolized by The Star #17 in the Tarot. Aquarius is associated with this card which is also considered a Wishing Card a blessing after the hard awakening of the Tower #16 which preceeds this card which destroys the ego.
The Full Moon Eclipse is July 27 @ 1:20 pm PDT /at maximum at 8:20 pm GMT.
Aquarius/ the Star is a sign of higher consciousness and cosmic awareness that we are all One and united under the Heavens. Aquarius rules the Internet, new technology, science cloning, stem cell research, cell phones collectives and social media.The Goddess Urania one of the 9 Muses is pictured on the card. She governs the study of Astrology. Uranus is the modern planetary ruler of Aquarius a masculine detached air sign of revolutions freedom technology and going “beyond” limitations and a sign which shares power with the group or tribal mind.
The South Nodal eclipses asks us to release old ideas of feeling separate alone alienated isolated and left out. We are being called to release the past and the next eclipse in 2 weeks time a Solar Eclipse in Leo takes us on the high road of the heart and being sovereign autonomous and living from the heart.
Remember that Mars-ruled Aries and Scorpio are being impacted the greatest by this eclipse as well as Aquarius and the other fixed signs Taurus and Leo 
At the Lunar eclipse when our emotions are blocked temporarily as the earth throws her shadow over the Full Moon the stars will come out of the dark and the unseen will be lit. Mars will shine almost twice as bright as Jupiter. Use this rare and special longest eclipse to ground yourself like a lightning rod. Take the higher-minded road during these intense times remember that we are all star stuff all carbon-based diamonds in the rough.
The Aquarius Lunar Eclipse  Blood Moon-Mars Retrograde MEDITATION

This rare and special extra-long Total Lunar eclipse is part of South Node Saros Cycle 129 featuring Mars Retrograde at its brightest being eclipsed on the same day.

This extra-long lunar eclipse allows us to take a long overview of our present situation here at this very powerful turning point in humanity’s evolution.

A South Node Aquarius Lunar Eclipse points us to releasing old ideas and paradigms- ones which we thought were based on technology progress “equality” and mass brainwashing.  This brings us a revolutionary occasion for radical change, to gain Higher consciousness, to expand our awareness for the whole, the group mind, and for massive growth on all levels.

As the Moon is eclipsed by the earth’s shadow the feminine physical world grounds our emotions. We become like a lightning rod. The stars come out as the Moon grows dark red and the bright night sky is turning dark and black. It is a time of great mystery and all the animals and birds will be silent during the totality which is 1 hour and  47 minutes.

In North America, we will not see the eclipse or be in the direct shadow which is where the effects will be felt the strongest but we will certainly feel its effects. This is a time for being deeply introspective with Mars Retrograde and Mercury too along with Saturn Neptune and Pluto. Mars is Out of Bounds from July 7 to September 24 the old Masculine warrior paradigm is ending. It is also repressed angry and most fiery and dangerous too. The positive side of an Aquarius Mars Retrograde is of being in service to the heart- the opposite shadow side of Aquarius which is Leo which we will get to in two weeks.

This is a time for exploring in the void the cauldron of rebirth. Aquarius is the only fully human sign of the Zodiac. We are leaving the Age of Pisces, Christianity’s symbol. The Age of Aquarius whenever it actually begins is about equal rights for all humans, gays, LGBT, men and women. 

The Water Bearer, the 11th sign, is an Air sign, not water. Aquarius’s glyph, the double lines that look like waves, are lightning bolts and symbolize the waters of consciousness and our bodies electrical kundalini energy.  Your consciousness is the Light. Many Ancient civilizations believe that our ancestors came from the stars. The Star in the Tarot, the 17th Arcana card shows this energy of the Goddess as the Stars, as cosmic vessels of divine light flowing down to the earth to quench our human cosmic desire to be connected with source.  

Aquarius energy is like being struck by lightning. The Eureka moment when the big light bulb goes off in your mind.  Aquarius, the electric sign, is the sign of uniqueness, genius, higher consciousness. Aquarius energy is groupthink, tribal mind freedom from old structures and limitations of Saturn-the Patriarchy  History and customs -even though the cosmic cop rules both these signs traditionally.

The Sun in Leo the opposite pole to the Aquarius Lunar eclipse is about self-expression, our childlike ability to play, our passions and dramas, our leadership, roles, hearts, our abilities to share power and our higher consciousness where we are all in fact ONE. We will be drawn there in 2 weeks on the next Solar eclipse in Leo August 11  on a New Moon.

This Lunar Eclipse brings to a conclusion a cycle that was begun 18+ years ago. The last eclipse in this cycle was in 2000. Previously in 1982 1964 and 1946. Donald Trump was born during a Lunar eclipse Saros Cycle 129 and this eclipse will propel him into some karma he was born to confront.

MEDITATION for the rare Blood Moon Aquarius Mars Retro Lunar Eclipse

If you’ve been doing previous Full Moon meditations gather the four candles, color related items and incense.

We are connecting with AIR and the stars. 

Smudge yourself first, cleanse the area you are in. Center yourself and BREATHE. Aquarius is AIR.

Light your four candles one by one starting in the East for fire, this is the cosmological system I use but if you are pagan you begin in the South with Fire. Always move clockwise, wherever you start. Call in the four elements and directions. Call in the Holy Guardian Angels and your own and the Angel of this Moon, Umabel {oomabell}.

Close your eyes. Go into your heart. Visualize a root chakra opening meditation.

With your eyes open or closed look up into the vault of Heaven and see the sky filled with thousands of stars. Each star represents an ancestor watching over you. Every person is connected with a star. Follow a star that attracts your attention. In your mind’s eye travel out from your crown chakra at the top of your head to it. When you reach this Star you will have a higher consciousness  perspective. Look back at the earth, a tiny blue planet on which seven billion individuals co-habit. See how tiny your issues are when faced with the vast expanse of Space.

From this higher perspective it is easy to detach from any emotions, people and situations that have been keeping you feeling stuck, stagnant or blind. Sense the freedom!  Now connect with the spiritual consciousness of the specific star. You don’t have to know which star it is. Open your mind to a new adventure, a new learning curve.  See, feel or sense the Soul of the Star, the Guardian of it, its essence. Ask its permission to speak with you. Open up to dialogue with it. You will have an extraordinary experience if you seek, ask and open your mind. You are always safe and protected.

Ask the Soul Star what you need to release to enable you to integrate your body feelings mind heart and spirit. Be patient, wait.

All you have to do is ask, be open and receive. Always give thanks and be grateful for what you may experience.  Many inventions are triggered from these stellar interactions.  From your Starry perspective make a Fixed vow that you will follow through and earth that new experience, energy, invention and freedom which you have received.  Bring your consciousness back down to earth and know that you can connect yourself anytime you wish to the Star and make wishes on it too.

CLOSING the CEREMONY

At the end of every ceremony or ritual you must thank the spirits and elements for coming to be in your circle. You must release each one back to their direction, starting in the East or South, whichever direction you began. Thank each one out loud is best, for participating in the ceremony. For example for fire. Say “Thank you Sacred Sprits of Fire for being here in my circle  in this ceremony and in my heart. I release you back to your direction with great love and gratitude. Ho.”  Repeat for water, earth and air. 

At the end of the ceremony say, “May the circle be open but unbroken. May the love of the Star Goddess be ever in my heart. Thank you. It is finished in beauty. Aho.”

Sun-Mars Retrograde Opposition

July 26 Mercury is officially Retrograde in Leo until Aug.18-19. Give your ego a much-needed rest. Review your role on the world’s stage. Gather up energy for after this summer’s eclipse season.

The Capricorn Moon is sobering serious and unemotional as we feel the great eclipsing approach. The Moon makes nice positive aspects to Neptune enhancing night dreams and practical daydreams.

Moon and Pluto conjunct

bringing up needs for secrecy control issues and power struggles.

The Moon quincunx to Mercury Retro in Leo

Is a seriously messed up bad communications snafu day.

The Sun and Saturn also are inconjunct.

Your vitality maybe less than peppy and this aspect is also in effect during the lunar eclipse. Our egos and our duties maybe irritating AF. Decide which role you really want to command. You won’t want to be under anyone else’s thumb and Aquarius South nodal lunar Eclipse guarantees that on the 27th.

The Sun Opposes Mars exactly in PDT/on the 27th @ 1:13 am EDT/ 5:13 am GMT

The Big Red Face-off

Mars is the closest its been to the earth since 2003 making it appear very bright in the sky. If it is clear where you live go outside and do some Mars salutations. We will be staring down the red planet as it backs away from us Moving Retrograde.

Some people might assume this is a U.S. Putin Russia thing to- the Reds

Mars opposite the SUN is very feisty. Mars is baiting the Sun with a big red cape. We are stuck in the middle as referee. All oppositions involve one side pushing or baiting the other. Mars is doing a passive aggressive thing to Leo Sun’s royal assumption that he is the ultimate King. Aquarius the sign Uranus rules is not having any of it. Aquarius is about everyone having power and working together collectively. Divide and conquer may be losing ground.

ARIES And SCORPIO how are you doing as Mars your ruling planet turns back time?

Mars Retrograde the old angry resistance warrior ego battles with his detached “passing the buck” falling into line drone mentality. The aspect features in the Lunar eclipse on July 27th. This eclipse flushes all of that old warrior energy cog in the wheel worshipping science and hi-tech facelessness down the tubes. It’s Death of the old masculine “following orders” warrior. Now the new heart crowned divine masculine honors the divine feminine his own creative willpower and heart with courage as Uranus also squares the Nodes. This is a karmic battle of New World Order of who controls the internet, freedom of speech, freedom to express oneself as in taking a knee, listening to one’s own heart truth. And so much more.

Energy levels will be low today with Moon in Capricorn and all of these quincunx energies.

Venus Out Of Bounds during Royal Wedding

Women love and money are freed up and unbound as of May  5th as VENUS goes OUT OF BOUNDS @ 12 degrees Gemini opposite to the Great Attractor and squaring Neptune her higher octave until June 7 where she “rebounds” under the Sun’s yoke again @ 22 degrees Cancer.
OUT OF BOUNDS
A planet is considered out of bounds when its declination is beyond the outer boundaries or limits of that of the Sun- greater than 23 degrees and 27 minutes of declination, either North or South. The energies of any planets moving OOB planets means the same thing as in sports- being beyond or passing the limits or boundaries of a field, course, or in planetary terms beyond the Sun’s path tends to be loose- freed up, uncontrollable stretched, or over the top during these periods. 
Venus uses her “get out of jail free” card to do her own thang. Love means freedom and expansion of the heart. This can indicate more love and more heart energy. That’s a good thing. Free up whatever is heavy in your heart. This is like the prayer to the Ancient Egyptian Goddess Ma’at. To the Ancient Egyptians who after death believed that your heart is weighed against Ma’at’s ostrich feather diadem on the scales of Justice. If your heart is heavier than her feather then you must return to earth and be reborn. If the scales balance perfectly and your heart is as light as a feather then you are free to go on into the Universe freed from the karma of rebirth. I’ve always loved that story and image. 
Personally-Your Love life
Well, women just gotta be free. Girls just wanna have fun. Crazy love time. These Boots Are Made for Walking. Don’t Fence Me In- a song you can yodel too!
If you are feeling stifled in a relationship Venus OOB will give you courage and the strength to leave. As she turns Loose in GEMINI the urge to have open relationships is much higher for all genders. This could be a time to expand the limits of what feminine energy means. But do be aware of double talk and double entendres. This can also indicate the opportunity to get pregnant with twins will be higher. I just channeled that info. 
Marriages
June is traditionally the month to get married in but getting married under an Out of bounds Venus may not be the best idea. Women must be given full reign to express themselves in any contractual arrangement during this time. 
The Rebound
Old lovers may rebound back into your life now. Be careful of this as it may not be the wisest thing to do. Also, don’t rebound into another relationship. This is a time to explore your options. 
As Venus moves through Cancer May 19 the Day of the Royal Wedding she crosses the World Point and the sign of motherhood and nurturing. It can indicate the opportunity to get pregnant unexpectedly will be stronger too. 
Check where these degrees 12 Gemini to 22 degrees Cancer fall in your natal chart and circle it. Check out if Venus OOB conjuncts squares opposes or inconjuncts any planets angles nodes asteroids or other points in your natal chart.
For Venus ruled Taurus and Libra Venus OOB will affect you more strongly.Check out where these signs are in your astrology chart and which houses are affected which shows in greater detail where the loose woman energy is impacting you and your love life. 
This will tell you what is being affected and where. If you need help to understand how to work with an OOB Venus in your love life. Get a reading with me-http://www.taratarot.com
FEMINISTS
Women will be definitely be demanding more freedoms and refuse to be chained down during this period. It just came to me that LILITH is a permanently unbound woman. 
Venus rules money and finances.
Expect a wild and crazy ride in the money markets too under Venus  “loose woman” status.
Venus governs the sign of Taurus. Uranus enters Taurus May 15
This adds an additional layer of chaos to this ingress. A further unexpected chaotic element is added to the Royal Wedding as well as its meaning and outcome. The  “urge for getting out of dodge” energy. All feminine energies are freed up during this period. What do slaves do once they are freed?

Ostara Equinox time of balance

Spring Equinox/ Autumn Equinox in the Southern Hemisphere and International Astrology Day arrives March 20 @ 9:15 am PDT/ 12:15 pm EDT and 4:15 pm GMT and March 21 further east. The one of two days of balance between the Light and Dark in the year. 

Spring Equinox is the beginning of the Natural New Year in the Northern Hemisphere which our ancient Anglo-Saxon pagans ancestors called OSTARA which was the origin of the word Easter.

The festival of Spring is a fertility festival celebrating the turn of the Wheel of Time and the promise of new life and growth celebrating the masculine Horned God {Pan} and the spring maiden the Goddess. Eggs and rabbits are main symbols of fertility and eternal life which are still used today. 

The Mayans of the Mexico and Central America celebrated Spring’s arrival on the  Equinox by the pyramid of El Castillo at Chichen Itza as the Sun casts a long shadow in the late afternoon as the serpent God Kukulkan makes his descent down 91 steps of the pyramid symbolizing the return of the Sun God.

The Chinese celebrate Spring by balancing eggs for good luck.

in Japan, Spring And Autumn equinox are marked by a celebration called Higan. This is a Buddhist tradition which literally means “the other shore.” These Equinox’s mark crossing over dates for the spirits of the dead who are able to reach Nirvana after crossing the river of life and death from the mortal world of suffering into the world of enlightenment of spirit.  

Spring is the beginning of ARIES season HAPPY BIRTHDAY ARIES and marks the first quarter of this year and begins a new 12-month cycle.  ARIES is initiatory energy- get rid of the old. Aries has lots of energy passion desire and drive to burn. All signs will be feeling it -especially Cardinal ones- Cancer Libra and Capricorn. 

This Equinox’s signature feature is NO PLANETS in AIR SIGNS. No Air is a serious condition we can’t live without breathing oxygen. We may literally feel like we can’t breathe are choking or gasping. Air symbolizes ideas and can indicate difficulties in communicating for the next three and 12-month cycle. We may feel like we can’t communicate or that our ideas are not getting across. We may feel at a crossroads and at a loss of new ideas. We spend way too much time thinking and analyzing in our heads. Perhaps this can be a good thing. 

The PLANETS

The SUN and CHIRON in late PISCES are in conjunction. We have a lot of emotional healing to complete by burning up old karmic wounds suffering and victimization.Chiron the Wounded Healer is acting as a huge catalyst to let go and complete a major cycle.

MARS ARIES ruling planet runs the show from early earthy CAPRICORN squaring the Newborn Sun. Mars in Capricorn brings fire purpose and the stick with it determinism to finish what it starts. This brings in a stable fiery energy with grounded realistic drives leadership and new beginnings in government career and worldly things. 

MARS is conjunct SATURN in CAPRICORN

 The “two malefics can bring one-two punches and difficult tests as initiations.  This can indicate fires volcanic explosions terrorist attacks gun issues and major anger at government leaders or those in power. Aries and all Cardinal signs will feel this more intensely. Ultimately these Saturn-Mars tests are a trial by fire. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.

The MOON is the unconscious mood and feelings of the people especially women. In stable sensuous fixed TAURUS symbolizes that our emotional safety must be in our bodies; rooted in nature; in beauty sensuality and in trusting our gut feelings and instincts and in speaking our truth to create the new.

SATURN in CAPRICORN Trines the Moon at 8 degrees 

Saturn brings stability and maturity to our emotional wellbeing. Find safety in nature and following the tried true and traditional while the new is being conceived and born. Patience is a virtue.

MERCURY and VENUS in conjunct in ARIES

These two very beautifully visible in the night skies these days symbolize the marriage of the heart and mind. A very beautiful revelation. Venus is in Mars’s sign lending a strong Wonder Woman Amazon fearless feminine energy. Write and re-write; speak and spread the word about women’s roles in creating equality between the sexes in a new world.

MERCURY-VENUS Trine the North Node in LEO

Trust your instincts passion and heart. Indulge in beauty creativity and self-expression. You’re the star of your own show.

LILITH in CAPRICORN squares MERCURY VENUS

Lilith means business right now. She amps up the power of the Mercury-Venus conjunction to tell it like it is and to shout down and refuse to compromise to any Patriarchal government structure rules or laws. This goes for any issue-gun laws immigrants rights women or indigenous rights. 

MERCURY turns Retrograde March 22 until April 15th

The Retrogade is so close to the Equinox it indicates a “slow burn.” Make sure you review your options first and wait. I know this is really difficult for Mercury in Aries- this is part of the Mars- Saturn test.  Your mantra until April 15th is “Fools rush in where angels fear to tread.”

JUPITER RETROGRADE TRINE CHIRON IN PISCES

This is a beautiful healing aspect which was initiated and intensified at the New Moon in Pisces March 17th. Continue to shed let go and cry. Grieving is very important to go deeper into soul retreival to transform and to rise like the Phoenix.

PLUTO in CAPRICORN -URANUS ERIS square

These two are still in a square further inducing the birth of new revolutionary government and corporate change.The squares of 2012-2015 are manifesting more obviously now.

 

Enjoy springing into the new energies of this quarter. Many Blessings Tara

Known as the WORM Moon by Algonquin indigenous tribes or the CROW or Sap Moon. Indigenous peoples lived by Lunar cycles and named moons for the seasonal changes and their observations of mother nature. Other names are MAGPIE MOON- STORM MOON- CRUST MOON- SUGARING MOON and MOON of the WINDS  

The Worm is a very important animal as it makes the earth rich for growing crops. As the earth softens prepping for Spring worms come out of the ground in spring rains and the Robins the harbingers of Spring love to get those worms. 

The CROW or MAGPIE caws loudly heralding Springs return. Crow’s are one the most intelligent birds. They can make tools that are more sophisticated than a monkey can. Crow’s feature large as Magical birds and bringers of Karma/Dharma in the medicine wheel teachings I learned.

The early bird gets the worm- remember that- a very Virgo motto.

That fits this VIRGO heavily weights PISCES Moon’s nature perfectly to me.

The Moon is opposed by JUNO in early PISCES the SUN NEPTUNE and MERCURY VENUS and CHIRON conjunct further  in PISCES.

BLACK MOON LILITH @ 12 degrees CAPRICORN trining the VIRGO Moon and conjunct to SATURN opposite The U.S. SUN and SIRIUS

LILITH also sextiles the SUN and NEPTUNE’s mid-point exactly.

VIRGO is the VIRGIN WHOLE UNTO HERSELF GODDESS and who was the first Virgin GODDESS it was LILITH of course!

As WOMEN are speaking out with TimesUP and MeToo this empowered embodied Virgo hard working Full Moon amps up the LILITH FIRST WOMAN GODDESS refusal to compromise over work pay issue imbalances; health; and boundaries. 

PISCES is the oceanic realm of our emotions the realm of  Karma of past lives; the unconscious; faith; religion; projection; psychic energy; endings; intuition; soul-mates; artists; images; addictions; genius; angels; madness; dreams; self-destruction; spirituality; martyrs; Hollywood; glamour; illusion; and debt. 

VIRGO is the sign balancing out PISCES and vice-versa. VIRGO is earth practical grounded; humble and real-signifying work and what we serve. It is the sign of the HARVEST and the VIRGIN “whole unto- Herself” Goddess of the earth-Ceres. VIRGO is our food our work; humility; our dedication; intelligence; order; accountability; budgets; perfectionism; worrying; nature and natural herbs foods and products and health issues. VIRGO symbolizes what we harvest after all the hard work.

The HERMIT Tarot Trump #9 is the sign associated with VIRGO

It would be good to spend time alone tuning into your body and Mother Earth’s  wisdom.

MERCURY is the ruling planet of VIRGO and not strong in the sign opposite the one it rules. Mercury also rules GEMINI. Mercury is lost in a dream or an illusion or projection.  Communicating from the psychic pineal gland chemistry from the hidden realms of imagination- from the most ephemeral of all signs PISCES- from pure spirit. 

This Moon brings to Fullness what we have been so polarized about since the SOLSTICE. This is the last Full Moon of the Winter season in the Northern Hemisphere. We have to be grateful. 

THERE is a MAJOR WONDERFUL Aspect

VENUS TRINES JUPITER in SCORPIO @ 23+ degrees 

This is a beautiful water trine which includes MERCURY and CHIRON  close by.  VENUS in PISCES is exalted and JUPITER expands. MAKE VERY BIG DEEP WISHES on this FULL MOON and imagine dream believe and make real through VIRGO HARD WORK what your soul and spirit needs to bring through into the world. 

This also describes the MARCH FOR OUR LIVES movement led by students who were killed on Valentine’s Day in Florida Parkland High School. 

Q. ASK HOW CAN I USE MY GIFTS and ABILITIES to SERVE THE HIGHEST GOOD?

MARS @ 20+SAGITTARIUS is conjunct to VESTA the Asteroid Goddess 

VENUS is pulling away from square to MARS and VESTA. NEPTUNE MERCURY and CHIRON are in this tough love but inspiring square. Put some humor on it. VESTA helps us to focus on dedication. It is a very Virgo-like energy. Its what we invest in.

Q. to ask: What am I investing my time energy consciousness and unconsciousness into?

The VIRGO MOON is in a wide T-square to MARS in SAGITTARIUS and VESTA and NEPTUNE MERCURY and VENUS in PISCES

JUPITER is SEXTILING PLUTO

That describes intense fights to the death over power and control issues. NRA anyone? 

SATURN is sextiling the SUN 

This is a nice grounding energy to MANIFEST YOUR DREAMS A SPIRITUAL PRACTICAL WORLD- GROUND YOUR IDEALS.

JUPITER IN SCORPIO inconjuncts URANUS and ERIS in ARIES

This is again echoing new ideas about new guns laws-new- ARIES- the warrior sign- and JUPITER- LAWS- and those entrenched in power money secrets and control. Describing the heating up debate between those who want sensible gun control laws and the rabid NRA and those corporations and government officials who have been bribed. 

The VIRGO MOON sextiles SIRIUS the brightest star in the sky at 14+ degrees CANCER plunk on the U.S. SUN which inconjuncts the SOUTH NODE in AQUARIUS.  

We are harvesting the karmic seeds that were sown regarding old ideas of revolution and freedom. Times have changed. Aquarius the SOUTH NODE is about freedom and change invention and blowing up the old Capricorn Patriarchal structures of history. Time- SATURN marches on. Nothing is ever permanent.

As the FULL MOON pulls on our emotions and our bodies and the oceans listen to your guts- Virgo rules the Upper intestines- and ask: 

What do I need to do to clean up my act? What am I feeding my body?  Am I happy with my work? Does it feed my soul? Where do I need to simplify my life? How can I consume less and live more spiritually? How can I stop my perfectionism and workaholism? What do I serve? How can I learn to listen to my intuition? How can I see the world as one whole with no split between body and spirit? 

An old friend of mine passed away recently and I’m feeling his soul presence as have many others who were close to him. A death always makes us more aware of the preciousness of this human incarnation. Joseph Mark Cohen of Nelson B.C. was an incredible mystic writer teacher tour leader and creator working with Kabbalah Astrology Gematria Crop Circles and all kinds of wonderful things. May you R.I. P. 

RITUAL for a VIRGO FULL MOON

water and earth. It would be good to be out in nature or simply get some clay and water and mold something with your eyes closed by the light of the full moon’s pull. 

VIRGO helps us build healthy boundaries.

Meditate deeply program your dreams. The intense PISCES energy is extremely strong. Create a vision or dream board.  Open to receive your work instructions from your Higher Self and the Angels.
