Equinox justice, the re-balancing Point

September 23 2015 @ 8:20 a.m. UT/ 4:201 a.m. PDT/ 1:21 am  EDT the SUN our Source sits exactly on the Equator and the length of day and night are equal. Sun enters the Tropical Sign of LIBRA, the 7th sign, noted for marriage traditionally, all relationships, balance, equality, beauty, women, justice and peace making.

Pagans/witches/Celts in the Northern hemisphere celebrate this as Mabon and for those in the Southern Hemispher it is Eostre, Spring. This is only one of two days in the entire year where day and night are equal. We are in the Balancing point.

Venus Libra Love Tara Greene

 

The Sign of Libra is symbolized by the Scales of Justice which were originally Ancient Egyptian Goddess Ma’at’s scales. This scale weighed the hearts of  the deceased to see if their hearts were light enough to ascend to the realm of the immortals and leave the plane of matter when weighed against her ostrich feather diadem.

Equinox astrology Tara Greene

VENUS is the ruler of Libra and she is the Star literally of the show in Leo risen anew as the morning Star She is still retracing her Retrograde path until she gets to zero degrees Virgo on October 8. In this chart cast for Greenwich UT at 8:20 U.T. The software says something else I know. Libra is also Ascending and the cusp of the 12th house indicating this is definitely a Re-BALANCING act.

Venus is Trining Uranus- see previous article https://infinitynow.wordpress.com/2015/09/23/venus-trine-uranus-krazy-dramas-wild-kinky-love/

MARS Venus’s mate is only 9 degrees away also in Leo. The pair symbolize leading from the heart. There is no balance unless both sexes are on the same playing field. Libra Ascendant is where we are growing into. Uranus is creating new revolutionary ideas for us to live our lives in Peace Balance and harmony and beauty as the off-kilter planet is near the Descendant in the 6th house which is traditionally Virgo’s placement.

The SUN is  conjunct to The NORTH NODE in LIBRA at 1 degree and conjunct Asteroid JUNO the Goddess of Feminine Genius. Don’t buy that old story about Zeus’s long-suffering wife, that’s the patriarchal version and Juno stands beside  LILITH, the Original woman/Goddess who was almost buried in HIStory.  This conveys to me that the power of the Balance comes from women honoring the Goddess and Her genius and their own feminine form of innate wisdom. Women must honor their own power being unafraid to speak out against the old crumbling Patriarchal system to bring peace and balance into the world.

VESTA the Goddess of the Hearth, focus and dedication and the root word for inVESTments is in Aries opposite Lilith and Juno. Lilith can be vengeful. Use your intuition when investing these days. 

MERCURY is Retrograde at the equinox in the 12th house, opposite Uranus and squaring Pluto. There is some back seat negotiations going on behind the scenes. 

The Sun is also sextiling Saturn also at zero degrees Sagittarius.

SAGITTARIUS rules religion and politics. So how synchronistic that the POPE comes to America at this time and will address Congress for the first time. A quarter of the population in the U.S. is Catholic so the Pope’s visit is huge. The Republicans hate the POPE. This is a strange comedy which is also a Sagittarius thing. What will he address Congress with? In a time when we need to have a completely secular world I find it strangely backwards to be mixing religion with politics. That is a form of Sharia law which is religious law of the land. The more it looks different the more it is the same. You know what I mean, it isn’t literal.

This is a brand new starting place for balancing old karmic debts. The Sun is conjunct to positive expansive optimistic intellectual and earthy Jupiter in Virgo. We need to acknowledge what we have harvested in our environment. Our food supplies are a huge issues.

The MOON, the prevailing mood is in Corporate business suited Capricorn, conjunct CERES the Ancient Earth Mother. And the POPE is in America to address Congress about climate change. The Mood is to be grounded, practical repsonsible. The Moon represents the people and women, and she is squaring Uranus.  The forces of the Cardinal Cross energy are still definitely moving through the culture as much as the forces of a feminine revolution are in the wellsprings.

JUPITER in Virgo is on budget, very humble, hard-working, perfectionist and nature loving as well. The Sign of the only woman in the Zodiac Virgo was the original Virgin Goddess,whole and complete unto herself, another name for Demeter/Ceres. 

Jupiter is opposite to Neptune in Pisces and is forming a T-square to Saturn which will be exact on November 26. Jupiter opposite Neptune brings our spiritual yearnings, our dreams, and our creativity down to earth and make it real. Saturn will be testing what is real and what isn’t on all levels over the next few months. This will be a huge wake up bursting of the bubble on every level. Saturn in Sagittarius is Truth telling and justice. Like the VW scandal that just emerged, or the CEO who bought the Aids pill and increased the cost by $750 a pill was forced to recind by the media. That’s instant media karma for you. 

Jupiter is opposite Chiron in Pisces telling of the refugees seeking shelter from the war and compassion. Jupiter rules foreigners, travelling, politics and justice. Some of the refugees are genuine refugees running from a destroyed Syria their homeland which the west refused to enter into. Others are trying to jump on the bandwagon from other countries, Pakistan, Eritrea. It will be chaotic and Saturn in Sagittarius limits travelling. So we shall see which lands the refugees do end up in. Saturn in Sagittarius ruled gypsies so I don’t seem them settling in one place.

 

At the Equinox stop and make time to set your intentions for the next 3 months till Winter Solstice, and longer till next Spring/fall. Because Mercury is Retrograde its a good time to review. The upcoming Blood Moon’s energies are forming with the eclipse as well, so think about where you were 18 years ago at the last eclipse.

Cardinal Cross New Moon intentions

Every month during each New Moon, the Moon, {and women as well} transform into a most mysterious and magical phase and disappear into the depths for three days. Every New Moon we begin again with a new rebirth and emotional cycle. A new Moon is a very private personal journey. For women if you are in touch with the natural moon’s cycles it is the time of bleeding. It’s a special time out time, to retreat to your Moon Lodge, yurt, red tent, bath or bedroom. Go into your own intuitive body wisdom.

New Moons are the best time to set new intentions, cleanse your crystals and accompany the Moon into her dark liminal spaces. 

New Moon Pluto INtentions Tara Greene tarot astrology

I don’t know who to credit this to. 

This Cancer New Moon is an intense one reactivating the Cardinal Cross energy  from the Sun and Moon in Cancer to Uranus in Aries and a wide opposition to Pluto. Cancer is focused on nurturing, emotional security, safety, home and busting out of the old cycles. Cancer is the sign of the mother, the root chakra, the 4th house, our childhoods, our parents and our cultural upbringing.

NEW MOON is at July 15 @ 6:24 pm PDT/ 9:24 pm EDT/ July 16, @ 1:24 am GMT

This event should be renamed Pluto’s Cardinal Cross resurrection Moon. The New Frontiers space bot is beaming back our first up close and personal photos of Pluto the day before.  

There are oppositions, squares and aspects you can’t even pronounce galore.

Mercury conjuncts Mars and they are in an exact opposition to Pluto, reigniting the Grand Cardinal cross degrees from this March. The synchronicity of the New Frontiers fly by are phenomenal.  Mars and Pluto, the co-rulers and conspirators of Scorpio are in cahoots and up to major revolutionary upheavals. Pay attention to banking, the Stock exchanges of the world and governments in chaos and major signs of revolution.

Mercury and Mars are conjunct to Fixed Star SIRIUS and the U.S. Sun.

Mars and Saturn are in a tight 135 degree aspects called a sesquiquadrate, a square and a half. Hacking? Fracking? People will be tense and angry. Danger of accidents, riots, explosions. 

Venus is also sesquiquadrate to PLuto.  Don’t push the river.  Stay away from those looking for fights.  The two most difficult planets are involved in this energy. Stock market volatility! 

Mars and Mercury in Cancer are inconjunct to Asteroid Athena in Sagittarius. 

Inspiration and emotions must learn to work together, Not overly masculinzed femininity nor too sentimentally emotional. There is inspiration and new learning available through Athena. 

Mercury is also squaring URANUS exact July 18, urging us to think beyond homeland safety and security to go beyond to New horizons and new frontiers.  

July 25 Mars squares Uranus what starts slow will build over the 10 day period. 

This is very volatile energy. Take the Higher octave of Uranus’s consciousness and see the big picture. Where is the emotional connection to a higher vision? That’s what needs to be followed. 

GRAND WATER TRINE 

Speaking of roots, the Lotus grows out of the mud. Saturn at 28 degrees Scorpio Retrograde is trine to Chiron in Pisces and to the SUN  MOON forming a Grand Water Trine. Time to let go, forgive, have compassion, heal and move on.  

For places in drought like Southern California, where I am heading July 14 into the fray. This New Moon is great for praying for rain and doing rain dances and aligning with the powers of water and going with the evolutionary currents of life. I will be doing rain dances there. It has been very wet in Toronto. I’m escaping the Pan Am games. 

VENUS and JUPITER in LEO 

are now 5 degrees apart in Leo. Venus, at that infamous 29th degree is squaring Saturn. This is tough love. But Love is the way. Love and bravery, strength, will, passion,and desire overcome even death, Saturn in Scorpio, karmic obstacles. Jupiter is the planet of the Master Spiritual teachers, of Higher knowledge and sacred Law brings all of his energy to the table with Venus. Feel your heart expand beyond any limitations. Breathe from your heart and breathe in the entire universe. You are a God/Goddess, a divine co-creator 

Venus is slowing down  getting ready to turn Retrograde on July 25 at 1 degree Virgo. She turns direct on September 6 at 14 degrees Leo. She is making Her journey into the Underworld with Saturn to re-emerge as the Dawn Star. Venus invites us to also disappear into the mists. 

Think now about healing old heartaches, what makes your heart sing, makes you flush with pride. Also a great time to finish up old creative projects at this New moon till the Full Moon on July 31. Review your budget, Venus rules money. It’s  secluded Love and reclusive times with Venus Retrograde, yes, even in Leo. The love vibes will be subtler, many relationships will end. 

Ceres, the Great Mother, Gaia is at 4 degrees Aquarius, a new vision of equality for the earth and women. She is sextile the South Node at 3 degrees Aries-indicating an ease in letting go of old battles and domination. She is in a wide sextile to VESTA Goddess of Money,focus and sexual healing at 10 degrees Aries. The three form a Finger of God or YOD aspect to JUNO Goddess of feminine Genius in Virgo. 

A Yod points to energies which are attempting to co-facilitate a rather difficult melding of elements. Juno at 5 degrees Virgo is opposite Neptune in Pisces, and square Saturn in Scorpio. 

Questions to ponder at this New Moon:

What nourishes my soul the most?  What do I need to quench my thirst? Where do I need to prune, fertilize or weed at the foundation of my being to enable new growth? 

GODDESS OF THE CANCER NEW MOON  –Yemaya 

Orisha Yemaya Mermaids Astrology Tara Greene

Cancer New Moon is about connecting with the Great mother energy of Yemaya, the African Goddess of the Living Oceans. Yemaya protects mothers and children. She is connected to mermaids, and Atlantis and Lemuria. She is ancient. Her colors are blue and white and peacocks are sacred to her, as they are to Lakshmi Indian Goddess of wealth and beauty. 

Set up your alter, have blue and white crystal stones of your choosing.

Have blue and white candles one for each direction.

have bowls of water, and peacock feathers, or images of them. 

Sit in the dark and light the candles sunwise in the traditional way that works for you. 

Breathe and remember being a fish, an amoeba, a single-celled creature when the oceans were primeval. remember being a whale. Yu carry these memories within you. Call upon Yemaya to come and protect you. Feel her energies. Call upon the peacock to bring you wealth and creativity. Ask the questions, above about love, values, what nourishes you. take your time. Pour water into the bowls. Sing, keen or chant. Allow song to move through you. Feel as if you are swimming in the ocean of the Great Mother. WHen you are ready slowly come out of your meditation. 

A deep unearthing of spiritual wisdom, which we all carry deeply encoded in our souls’s memories. is what we need to bring our tap roots to these at this New MOON. 

Please share widely and do respond please I love to hear from you. I want to know who you are. come forwards.

NEW MOON RISING- ANUGAMA 

 

 

Super charged solstice, New moon, Venus cardinal cross plus

I can’t remember a more supercharged transformative time.

very auspicious SOLSTICE  December 21 2014 Uranus direct motion, New Moon at 1 degree Capricorn, more Cardinal Cross Venus Uranus Pluto squares and Solstice all in one day.

Solstice astrology Tara Greene

SOLSTICE is at 11:03 pm GMT/ 6:03 pm EST/ 3:03 pm PST when the Sun touches the Tropic of Capricorn.

Capricorn is the third and last of the earth signs. It is 4th cardinal sign. Ruled by the architect of time, Father Saturn.

We are midwives of the SUN, this is the return of the Light, an ancient ceremony. For over 10,000 years or longer the Druids built Stonehenge to mark the solstices. Tens of thousands of people will gather again at Stonehenge in England to cheer this day. We began a new cycle, it is a time of JOY.

At this special time the SUN is reborn with a unique URANIAN spark of freedom, higher consciousness and collective awareness. We are all ONE.

We need to care for the spark of Higher consciousness.

Make intentions on this date for elevating your consciousness beyond any limits and beyond anything you have ever known. The SUN= Life.

All is possible, all is new. all is change, we are building, together a new world.

All the shadows have come up, we see all the hate and the fear and the power struggles.

We are ready to act, to embrace change. 

INSPIRATIONAL CARD OF THE DAY

ACE OF DISKS – beginning potential of all material things

cretaion solstice Tara Greene

Days of Creation by Edward Burne Jones

Of course you can always trust your tarot cards. The perfect symbol for the beginning of a new material season. The ACE OF DISKS is the days of creation as depicted in the painting. Develop the kernel of truth, the acorn of the mighty old oak tree.

Connect with your Guardian Angels and begin to build the physical nugget, the body of knowledge,  the act which you will tend, nurture and grow until Spring, then Summer, Autumn then next Solstice. 

Capricorn is your worldly position. What do you want to do to help the world?

Capricorn is your career, your work and job. Does your work reflect your innate talents? Is your work “right livelihood?” If your career is your daily grind, rat race and something you hate this is the time to change it.

Capricorn is the body, Your soul’s temple. How do you care for it?

We live in times of inordinate excess in a totally materialist and consumer culture. How much material possessions do you really need to live a complete happy life?

The earth is our physical mother, and we must make rapid changes to protect her and her resources. 

Capricorn/Saturn is the elders, the ancestors. Say prayers and thanks for all your ancestors, your lineage, clan, that love through your DNA. 

Be thankful for being alive and in the body. If you are confused about your purpose. Ask at this Solstice for Divine Guidance. 

These are incredibly stressful times we are living in.

Sunshine of your love – Cream 

Material Girl Madonna 

Libra New Moon Sedona Inspirational Intentions

Happy Autumn Equinox to you in the Northern Hemisphere and Happy Spring to those of you down under.

Did you feel the PLUTO changing direction THUNK? Don’t think about it.

Here in Sedona I led a wonderful intimate ceremony on the red rocks. There were four women which was perfect of course, because we each held one of the four directions.

Two women I had never met before in the physical, we had connected on the web and thanked the world-wide web for providing such magical synchonicities. One of the women had read this blog and contacted me. They who had just arrived earlier that day from Florida.

So I said we need to thanks SPIDER WOMAN. She is the original creatress. There is a lovely song to her. Both of these women are very spiritual ,one a yoga instructor, and tour leader and the other an acupuncturist and Taoist and both Reiki Masters and Lightworkers. My new Soul sistar and friend Julija from Melbourne Australia who started the Cosmic Intelligence Agency is also an awesome star-spangled spiritual lady who has stayed here with me for the past week, was in the circle as well.  

STARGAZING ARCHANGEL GABRIEL

We had been stargazing and had seen Capricorn and the Fixed Star Fomalhaut/the ARCHANGEL GABRIEL so clearly the other night.  I am literally very connected to this star as it is conjunct my NORTH NODE in my natal chart. and Neptune is still closely conjunct wit in 2 degrees to it now. So we are all being blessed by the announcing angel.

NEW MOON BLEEDING TIMES

We are all mothers, between the 4 of us we have 7 children I believe. I sang a song of Bleeding for the New Moon as well. Ladies if you are “on your moon” on the New Moon then you are in synch with the natural cycles. Time to go to the RED TENT.

We had wonderful prayers for the planet and sent light to where the U.S. had just started airstrikes against ISIL.  We sent prayers to the Middle east and to all the countries that need it. We blanketed the world. We set intentions for the next 3 months.

All of the 8 stations of the year, and New moons are always great intention setting times. We get two opportunities virtually together now.

The Moon is Void of COURSE today Sept 23 until 11:14 pm PDT when it enters LIBRA and not till Sept 24 @ 2:14 am.
ON void of course Moon days let go. Be in the now. 

I chose a Tarot Inspirational Card of the Day  for this New Moon

tarot astrology Tara Greene

8 of Wands by Julia C. Tenney

This is a beautiful image for intention setting. 

You must make 8 intentions.

In my ceremony last night I called in 8 directions.  The four Cardinal direction East South West and North which are stable and the Non-cardinals which are the movers of energy. In the Twisted Hairs Medicine teachings which I was taught. The directions means this;

The South East, is about self- love self-knowledge and self- acceptance

The South West, is about healing and the dreamers

The North West is the place of Karma and Dharma,of Raven and Crow and power places on the earth. Being in Sedona I feel very Blessed to be in one of the big power spots.

and the North East is the place of MAGIC, sourcery as in being connected to source energy.It is the place of new images and archetypes.

Each of these non-cardinals hold different healing energies as well. I will write a more in-depth article about that separately.

8 of wands is Mercury in Sagittarius.

Aim your LIGHT ARROWS of truth higher. To the GALACTIC Center. 

Think about what each direction and element means to you. Different traditions use different elements for each direction. Use which one works for you.

Gotta go. MANY Blessings

Rosh HAshanna the Jewish New Year begins tomorrow. I will write manana about that.

Good morning good morning The Beatles for the void Moon 

Lovely Libra New Moon, rebalancing Astrology

It’s Lovely LIBRA time Sept 22- October 23.

Libra AIRY New Moon @ 1+ degree Sept 23 @ 11:14 pm PDT. On the 24th @ 2:14 am EDT a new balance is beginning.

It’s time when love, relationships, art, fairness, social graces, peace, values, justice, balance and choices reign.

There are many inconjunct or quincunx aspects on this NEW MOON. The key is INTEGRATION of all these opposing and aggressively different values. It is like the Tower of BABEL we need to communicate {AIR} from a common ground and that common ground is the earth, literally.

Bruegel Babel Astrology Tara Greene

PETER BRUEGEL the ELDER Tower of BABEL  1563 oil painting

VENUS rules Libra and she is now in the last decan of Virgo {23 degrees} we are analyzing our next steps in the situation, talking about all those Venusian things.

Venus enters her beautiful {AIR} turf LIBRA on September 29 till October 23 when the LIBRAN energies can usher in the Balance more fully. Venus and the Sun are near conjunct when they both enter Scorpio on a very powerful partial Solar eclipse on that day. More about that later. 

We, as a whole as a species on planet earth our hanging in the karmic balance. We will not survive as a species unless we come back to honoring the earth and nature as our collective mother and bringing a balance into our lives- personal, cultural, in business, community on all levels.

Emma Watson, the British actress famous for being “the brightest witch of her age” as Hermione from Harry Potter, gave a moving speech at the U.N.  Sept 21. She is the Goodwill women’s ambassador and stated that Feminism by definition is: “The belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities. It is the theory of the political, economic and social equality of the sexes.” She urged men to also fight for women’s rights which greatly expands their own. The world has been patriarchally dominated for over 5,000 years and out of balance. Perhaps this New Moon will help us come to a middle place. 

LIBRA is the scales of justice, and rules the 7th house of marriage traditionally, also karma and equality in relationshipsRelationships must have great communication, equal parts listening and expressing ones thoughts to thrive.

PLUTO Lord of Death and Life has just turned DIRECT in station at 10 + degrees Capricorn..

All of your soul’s growth that has happened underground, since April 14, deep in the Unconscious soul stew, Hades realm. Pluto recovers its 13 + Capricorn Retrograde station on January 12 2015 before we can once again begin new lessons.

Pluto in Capricorn is tearing down and composting that which no  longer serves a viable corporate structuring in the world’s power. But it is up to each one of us as individuals to make this transformation from a death and greed, ego driven power over culture into a new structure of giving, ego less, caring for all beings as a one world family  to happen.

ITS ALL ABOUT CHOICES. That whole LIBRA challenge.

FINGER OF GOD to JUPITER in LEO

Jupiter in LEO is Trining Pluto making it easy to see who the BIG GRANDIOSE gluttonous leaders are. Jupiter is also in quincunx to Pluto and CHIRON in PISCES forming a FINGER OF GOD or YOD aspect. Jupiter is YAHWEH, Thor, g#d.

His old Patriarchal thunderbolt throwing power over issues are being deflated by Pluto and Chiron. There is definitely healing and HOPE as both Capricorn and Pisces are FEMININE signs of the earth and the waters. The Divine Feminine will rise above and below all the ego trips.

It may seem and feel like it is getting worse before it gets better but we know what this process is.

Uranus is also squaring Pluto from Aries and conjunct to the South Node to further hone in on change. The South Node, our collective Spiritual karma from the past will conjunct Uranus on January 20, 2015 at 12 + degrees ARIES. That is a very catalytic event. Mark it on your 2015 calendars. Check your NATAL CHART for which house that degree is.

Asteroid ATHENA, ancient warrior Goddess,originally an Amazon before Patriarchal times is at 18 degrees conjunct the NORTH NODE at 19 degrees LIBRA.  The wise women elders were the ones who gave their agreement to wars for it was their sons who might be killed. It is not a mark of honor for your son to die in battle to fulfill some ideology. 

Saturn is conjunct Ceres, Dwarf Planet of the earth Goddess and Vesta, she of the sacred kundalini sexual and devotional focus of spirit. Thus is GRAVITAS. Saturn was originally the GREAT MOTHER and not identified with the Patriarchy.  We must take the Great Feminine seriously or she will in SCORPIO fashion destroy to create new growth. It only hurts when we hold on. All life is about growth. Saturn is also quincunx to Uranus. Arent we feeling a bit crazy from all the challenges going down? 

Mercury at 27 degrees Libra is conjunct the North node in the natural 7th house. We need to think in terms of equality to walk a mile in another’s shoes. 

Neptune at 5 derees Pisces is square to Mars in Sagittarius. Dreaming new wider dreams. Neptune is also Quincunx to the NEW MOON. Sensitivity will be at peak but you need to carefully tune in to get the right frequency. 

MEDITATION

Meditate on feeling the balance within yourself. Breathe and centre your own consciousness Tuning dial, called your Assemblage point.  There is a “mudra” and breathing used to shift the assemblage point to center.

Light a candle at the New Moon. There are three pillars in the body, a left intuitive side and a right masculine side with a middle stabilizing pillar. This is reflected in the Tree of Life in Kabbalah and in Indian mysticism. 

The middle way, equanimity, the Buddha teachings, that is what this New Moon is all about. Being unmoved by one thing or another. Practice it. See everything as having an equal and opposite force and so it is in Nature.  All things must end, all things must end for new life to begin. By being impartial, and seeing both alternatives we can begin to formulate new ways to balance and new neural pathways.
