Mercury Retrogade conjunct Vesta and Hekate crossroads

MERCURY stations Retrograde August 12 and 13th in earthy VIRGO conjunct VESTA the Goddess of Investments and keeper of the sacred flame of spirit. The duo are opposite Neptune in PISCES.

This is a time to review your mind, body, spiritual wealth during this Retrograde. Review what you pay attention to, what you invest your time, work, and focus on. Review your diet and health routine. This would be an excellent time for a change in diet, or a cleanse as your discipline will be stronger. Also an excellent time for a mini vision quest, meditation retreat or re-visioning your goals. Virgo is the sign that traditionally rules “servants.” the Mercury Vesta conjunction opposition to Neptune points out needing to deal with addictions issues. Glamour, projections, shadow work addictions to sex, food gambling consumerism guru worship relationships and being overly rigid and perfectionist need to be dealt with.

Use your emotions to feel out which direction is calling you.

HEKATE Asteroid #100 is an ancient Goddess who sees in all directions at once. She was called the Goddess of the three ways- Tri-via which has been reduced to the knowledge of trivial pursuits these days.  She travels with a flock of suicides and freshly killed souls that she used to make Daimones with. She is associated with owls as are all night visioned dream bringing oracular psychic Goddesses howling dogs and household rubbish. 

If you feel that you are at a crossroads- call on Hecate. She is known to be a midwife of major life changes and decisions. She is a Dark or Black Goddess associated with the Dark or New moon phase of reclusiveness and women’s bleeding times of deep wisdom. 

The word HEKA or Hekau meant “magical speech” in Egyptian and Hekate means “influence from afar” in Greek. 

She is a triple Goddess. she is a shamanic goddess traveling from upper to middle to lower worlds and she had power over all three realms. She had three faces and Goddess associated with her.
She is known as the Moon Selene governing the Upper World or Heavens.
She is Artemis/Diana the huntress on earth. All wild animals are sacred to her especially the dog, or wolves the snake, and lion. 
she is the destroyer working with the dead in the Underworld.  
Statues of Hekate depict her as three female figures or crowned with a triple-turreted headdress, or with three heads. 

She is a Goddess of magic and garbage poisons night boundaries the shadow in the unconscious and the crossroads. She is ambivalent and unconventional. She is a solitary Goddess also associated with Chrone wisdom a post menopausal woman.

Cardinal Cross Mercury Retrograde,relationships review

Another gorgeous day in Paradise in Sedona here. Yes Mercury turns Retrograde Sept. 17 @ 11:09 am PDT /2:09 pm EDT and already all my FB messages with someone I am trying to meet up with here in Sedona have already all disappeared.  Hungary is retracting its open policy on refugees.  Another friend may be slapped with back taxes she never knew about.

With Mercury Retrograde in Libra all relationships; and everything is in relationship to everything else basically, will need to be readjusted. Chiropractics for the Universe.

AGREEMENTS WILL BE BROKEN, revisited and new arbitration and ambassadors will step up to the plate. Many legal and LOVE relationships will be re-evaluated. This is  like another Round of Venus Retrograde.

Libra Mercury Retrograde Tara Greene Tarot 
This is a PLUTONIC RADIOACTIVE RELATIONSHIP ReBALANCE RETROGRADE . It is at 15 degrees of LIBRA and is re-igniting the 2015 Cardinal Squares of Uranus and Pluto.

Mercury Turns Retrograde conjunct to the U.S. Sibley Chart {Natal chart}  Saturn at 14 degrees Libra, and squaring the good old U.S. of A’s Sun at 13 degrees Cancer/ the Fixed Star Sirius, the dying and reborning Star and opposite to the U.S.’s  Chiron where it is the most vulnerable and wounded at 20 degrees Aries. Kicking them when they’re down. 

Much renegotiation and karmic justice is on the way in the U.S. This also Affects Canada’s Sun/Uranus conjunction at 8 degrees Cancer as well as any countries or person’s with planets at the 15th degree of ALL CARDINAL SIGNS give or take a couple of degrees before or after.

Libra’s biggest weakness is always accommodating what they think others want because they need above , to be seen as NICE and socially acceptable. Libra’s don’t really know who they are unless defined by an “other,” or a status symbol, a fashion style or their tastes in art. They can be too superficial.

No we’re not finished transforming yet. Balance will be de-stabilized until October 9 when Mercury Turns direct at 1 degree of Libra. Mercury regains its forward motion on October 24.

Libra is the tension of the opposites. An air sign,Libra talks endlessly and socializes and needs others. We yearn for peace, we talk about it a lot, we do the push me pull you. Libra is the great ambassador and peace maker at its finest.

MERCURY RETROGRADE is an excellent time to retreat, to review re-do and reconnect with your authentic Self, your own sense of values and rebalance yourself  at the center core of the Libra scales and find the perfect balance in your life.

Me I have to get my old website re-done NOW> I am waiting on an Australian third party web host to send me my .com so I can start rebuilding. I am off the Google front page and this is worrying me. 

If you can please go visit my old website http://www.taratarot.com and peruse it for a few minutes that would help. I am trying to get some feedback from Google. Any one know how to fix this?

Mercury Retrograde, Magic thinking

I think I lost a day today already as Mercury stations turning Retrograde in Gemini where it is at its most powerful.

MERCURY turns Retrograde from 13 degrees Gemini @ 6:48 pm PDT/ 9:48 pm EDT and May 19 @ 1:48 am GMT back to 4 degrees on June 11th. 

Do mark where those degrees are in your natal chart. The Retrograde affects everyone differently event though it affects all of us. check which houses and aspects too.

The Presciption is: Don’t start, launch, buy, sell, or initiate anything during this time period unless it is unavoidable.

But Mercury Retrograde especially in Gemini can be very useful for breaking down old ways of thinking, and communications breakdowns which are a good thing. Things must break down to grow.

“Turn off your mind relax and float downstream” in the immortal words of John Lennon. Stop fearing Mercury Retrogrades.

The Moon is in Gemini May 18th, one of the pair of signs that Mercury rules, the other is Virgo highlighting this Super Mercury Retro. where we are deconstructing mind games.

It begins as a  sobering Mercury Retrograde as Moon opposes Saturn Retrograde in Sagittarius.

Review long-term educational, travel, writing, publishing and of course communications.

Moon conjuncts Mars so this is a hyper chatty, flirtatious, high energy but serious Retro.

You may also be feeling very wired and angtsy, Mars heightens the split personality energy.  Use it for selling, marketing, and meeting new people or clients who could turn out to be long-term clients/friends/lovers.

Moon squares Neptune a few minutes after the Retro. to make you feel lost at sea  without a GPS- be careful of liquids and computers and phones during this time period. Do tap into your dreams during the Mercury Retrograde.

Mercury is the TRICKSTER archetype, connected to coyote wisdom, the Fool, the sacred jester.

Watch your mind, become the watcher.

MEDITATE daily during the Retrograde

 Watch how the ego/mind plays tricks on itself. 

Mercury is The MAGICIAN in the Tarot.

These two archetypes the Fool= zero and the Magician emanate from the 1st Sephirot in the Tarot called Kether,  they represent the initial emanations from the Godhead.

The fool Tara Greene Astrology Tarot                  Magician Tarot Tara greene

Note the Mercury record label.  The Fool #0 & #22

This 60’s album has the masculine/feminine balance.                                    The Magician #1 in the Tarot

Hermes is Mercury’s name to the Greeks, he is the messenger God. Hermes/Mercury carried a magic wand called a Caduceus given to him by Apollo the Sun God. The Caduceus is a staff with two intertwining snakes on it topped by two wings. This magic rod is a symbol of the spinal column, the central conduit for Kundalini energy. The snakes cross on the chakras. The twin snakes represent complementary halves of the nervous system which Mercury rules. Snakes have since time immemorial symbolized wisdom, psychic powers, women’s menstrual cycles, the process of change, life and death, healing, the brain, our wiring.

Mercury is also a hermaphrodite. This issue of gender bending and transexuals is very much a Mercurial topic.

Mercury is duality in all of its aspects, yin/yang, polarity, balance. Normally  we largely operate in logical masculine analytical, Virgo left brain thinking. During Mercury Retrograde the intuitive, Feminine right-brained thinking is what gets turned on.

All planets during their Retrograde phases visit the Underworld, our unconscious to rest and renew. The God and Goddess also need to rest and renew..

As with all Retrogrades do all the Re things, relax, rewind, review, recalculate, etc etc. Rx the symbol of retrograde phase is the same as a Pharmacy. It is always Good Medicine.

HOW TO GET THROUGH IT WITH POISE

Do back up all computers, as information is likely to be lost, tampered with, misplaced, screwed up, and computer viruses run rampant during Mercury Retrogrades. As Mercury is in his own sign I predict this Retro could be a hair-puller but can be very good.

The symbol of Mercury Retrograding close to the New Moon symbolizes that we wipe the slate clean of old stale ideas, outworn attitudes, ways of communicating and mental images of your own identity and the world which need Re-energizing.. It is definitely time to change your mind and keep the change, a title of an old NLP book.

Do be careful about losing, dropping or damaging your cell phone or computer. Double and triple check everything use that Virgo influence to nit-pick over everything during the Retrograde.

Tomorrow Never Knows- The Beatles 

Super consciousness Mercury Retrograde, Re-imagine

A Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius starts today Jan 21- Feb 11..

Re-imagine everything!

This is a super consciousness re-wiring of our minds to imagine a new collective Higher Hive Mind . re-imagining a future with equality, freedom and co-operation. With many wishes hopes and dreams for all. That is the old 11th sign/house meaning. Rx is a good thing.

It will be exceptionally strong. Be forewarned. Especially for all you AIR SIGNS- GEMINI, LIBRA and AQUARIUS. Aquarius rules the Net so especially major hacking time!!!

LEO’s at the opposition also get particularly nailed. As do the other Fixed signs- Taurus and Scorpio.

 Everyone feels the Mercury Retrograde of course. Capricorn and Pisces being the next signs to Aquarius, may tend to feel it in subtler ways. It would be good to keep track of that. Of course Capricorn’s, like my husband says.”now don’t go making a crutch of this.”  He was born on a Mercury Retrograde so for him and all of you Mercury Retrograders, these times are most beneficial for you.

BORN THIS WAY

If you are born during a Mercury Retrograde and 33% of the population is. You are in your Zone during Mercury Retrrogrades. So make the most of it. Don’t know if you were born that way?  Get your astrology read: http://www.taratarot.com

 

Aquarius Retrograde Tara Greene

Leonora Cannington La Maja del Tarot

 Pisces peeps are under Saturn and Neptune’s beams anyways now.

Caught between a dream and a hard place. Hey I like the sound of that.

With the Sun in Aquarius, on an Aquarius SUPER MOON, a New moon with Venus there too, and the next New Moon at the last degree of Aquarius on Feb, 18 this super charges everything!

In the Air sign of Aquarius, Mercury is swifter, faster, in his home element. So the damage, the winds, the tornadoes and lightning bolts are much stronger.

Yes Aquarius’s symbol is water/ like electrical energy, lightning bolts. So imagine that we are having lightning  being hurled by Thor or Zeus or the Higher Beings to us mere mortals down here on earth. Yes I know Zeus/Thor is Jupiter. 

I can already feel Mercury Retro. Can you? shall we start a tales of Mercury Retrograde thing?

I sent an e-transfer to someone – she says it totally disappeared!

Trying to connect with someone on Skype-we both can’t find the add contact button which also seems to have disappeared! 

A client was here, and left his beautiful Borsellino hat. He had to come back for it.

Do all the Re- things. Like Relationships… Re Re re resepct!

Review, recalculate, rest, return, relegate, renovate, reality, restless, reputation, reckless, recycle, rehab, regulate, resist, relish, rectify, rebellion, reduce, refute, remember, renege, reopen, repeal, require, resuscitate, retaliate, rewind, retribution, revolution,rework,  resist, repeat, peat, peat. 

This will be a very heady mercury Retrograde as it is all about communications, the mind, analysis.

Rethink… old revolutions, changes and big shifts in perspective will come up.

Mercury sextiles Uranus, Aquarius’s ruling planet on Jan 27/28 to give you some super brilliant resolutions.

Mercury sextiles Saturn in Sagittarius Feb. 5 

this brings reviews of all things related to education, justice, who told the truth?

foreign relations, travel, history, philosophy, freedom, airlines, animal rights, and more.

MEDITATE on the powers of the Collective consciousness

We are all one big collective MIND HIVE.

Feel your interconnection with all others. 

This Retrograde allows us to reintegrate all the changes that have gone on during the last Uranus-Pluto squares, and the eclipses. We must revision where the collective is going.
