Total Libra Lunar Eclipse, its affects

I had recorded  the Total Lunar Eclipse and a guided meditation for you and finally got it uploaded. It takes a second or so before you hear my voice. Let me know how it is for you.   See link below.

I wanted to focus on the Astrology of this Eclipse and how it affects you and the world.

Set for Greenwich UT 1:05 pm 

total lunar eclipse Tara Greene

The Total Lunar eclipse at the 15th degree of LIBRA reactivates and counterbalances the 7th Crown chakra opening of  Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn cardinal square on the EMOTIONAL, UNCONSCIOUS and MENTAL levels. 

Guess which country is being exactly impacted by the eclipse with their Natal Saturn at 14 degrees Libra?  Yes, if you guessed the U.S. of A. you get the cigar. Plus the U.S. natal SUN at 13 degrees Cancer creates a Grand Cardinal Cross out of this for America. Waking up in the U.S.A.? 

countries affected by the eclipse;

IRAN has Pluto at 19 degrees LIBRA in the February 1, 1979 chart.

SYRIA has a 15 degree Cancer ascendant and its Moon at 16 degrees Cancer

IRAQ has its MC at 16 degrees ARIES, July 14 1958 chart 

RUSSIA has Neptune at 15 degrees Capricorn in the Dec. 25, 1991; 7:35 p.m.Moscow

The areas where the eclipse is fully visible are affected the most.

Libra is all about the “other”; the other person, country, them, their stuff. There is reams to write just about that psychologically. The SUN URANUS energy in ARIES is all 1st house, about ME, and my stuff which I am going to fight for and defend.  We can see the choices clearly.  Yes Iran just signed a Libran agreement over nuclear weapons so this is a good sign on the surface. Surface is what LIBRA is all about. That is also where we need to be very careful. READ below, between and above the lines. Where’s the meat, the bones? That is Saturn’s domain.

LIBRA Lunar eclipse is to help us all get some much-needed balance- hopefully. Libra is always pulled in two opposite directions and the point is to find the fulcrum, the middle way that the Buddhists so fondly speak of.

LIBRA is EQUAL RIGHTS, marriage, the alchemical Inner marriage.We need to have equal rights for women on every level, and its coming, its evolving. The Uranus Pluto conjunction in the 60’s was the beginning of the Feminist movement,now it is taking real shape.

All relationships are coming into a KARMIC balance especially in a number 8 year. You will need to make choices, something Libra energy finds difficult as it wants to appear NICE. It wants to have its cake and eat it to. Something has to be sacrificed, you can’t do both at once. One side will have to take less in order to balance things out. I have four planets in Libra I know this issue.

Women

For women I think this Eclipse hits a very deep part of every woman’s life. Women been bought off  to believe that competing in the corporate world like a man is far superior than to being a woman or a mother. Women have been forced to give up listening to their intuition and expressing their femininity in their careers. They are forced to give up their mothering time which is an atrocious loss on so many levels and so unenlightened. European societies recognize the importance of stay at home mom’s and dad’s who get full pay for staying with their children for a year. Women will have to make their needs met and to bring work vs family into balance. 

THE SUN is conjunct asteroid PSYCHE and URANUS  pointing out the need to listen to our own inner authority, our souls/psyche and let ourselves shine with authenticity, out own bright light, our Uranian need to be free, to be true individuals who can protest the current fascist order en masse.

We also have to remember Uranus is Technology and we can’t allow it to completely isolate and overwhelm us in virtual land. Real relationships, LIBRA Moon is where we need to bring our lives into balance. Fixed star Algorab is conjunct the Moon and it is a nasty star. We may find ourselves in a difficult hopeless place if we neglect our relationship balance.

PLUTO is bringing fascist government policies into our lives at incredible rates. Internet surveillance, human rights issues- Libran ones are being highlighted now. The Aries/Uranus sun also symbolizes those Muslim extremist fighters, trying to take over in many parts of the world. We need a balance quickly.

LIBRA Lunar Eclipse is ruled by VENUS at the 21st degree of TAURUS where she is firmly, sensuously embodied in her full beauty and seductiveness. But she is 5 degrees away from ALGOL the most feared star-Medusa’s head. Medusa was originally an Amazon warriores much feared by the Patriarchy. They originated in LIBYA, which is a country also in the news these days. The Muslim extremists seem to be embodying Algol . Saturn will backtrack close to opposition to this star in mid summer. It will get more intense.

I feel this is also a foretelling of an economic slump or crash when Saturn backs up into Scorpio from mid-June until mid- September. 

SATURN is Retrograde in  a nice hot GRAND FIRE TRINE with Jupiter still Retrograde but not for long and the SUN. All of the “meat” is being cooked but we won’t be able to eat any of it till later.

MARS, the Sun’s ruler and Uranus is sleepily dozing in Taurus on Venus’ turf. Well this promises some peaceful negotiations, and a less aggressive attitude. 

MERCURY is also in Aries so speed dialing, and lots of new ideas are being generated. 

NEPTUNE is squaring SATURN and this will continue until Saturn backtracks into Scorpio,which becomes exact in November 2015.

WTF is real and what isn’t is a huge issue.

People are really waking up to all the lies, how they have been drugged by the food they eat, media, the culture, the lies of the governments, the health, medical and banking systems. This is good. Keep pinching yourself and keep asking what is really real and what isn’t. Spiritual energies will be considered as more or equally real to the material world but it may be confusing and quite a trial until we achieve a balance with that.

CHIRON in Pisces and PLUTO are in a YOD to JUPITER in LEO. The FINGER OF GOD, points to our need to stay in our hearts, LEO, our will power, our own leadership. to be courageous, fearless, protecting our children and our inner child. Playing more. This is a big drama. 

Check your natal chart to where 15 degrees LIBRA/ARIES energy is karmicaly awakening you.

The Lighter side of the eclipse is that it falls on EASTER which was originally a pagan ancient FERTILITY FESTIVAL dedicated to the Goddess OESTER, it means a fertile egg. Every full moon signifies this and this one even more so. 

What are you pregnant with and ready to be fertilized, nourished and to birth in the world?

Meditate at the time of the eclipse is optimal. It will be super quick. check local maps.

listen to my guided meditation.

Winter Solstice and 2015 preview

Solstice. The word means Sol=Sun, stands still. The Sun appears to rise and set at the same location on the horizon for three days. It really should be spelled SOULSTICE. It is an ancient wiccan/ pagan/Germanic tradition called YULE. Al indigenous peoples celebrated in the participation of the turning of the wheel of time. It is the REBIRTH of the LIGHT, in the northern hemisphere. The Christian religion couldn’t eradicate the ancient practice, so they made this into the day of Jesus’s birth -Christmas. This time also marks the ancient Roman festival of Saturnalia.

The two major solstices of the year are extremely powerful times to download new DNA encodings and contemplate new beginnings for the next 6 months. This is the real New Year to celebrate. 

The second 2014 solstice IS LIKE- YOU AIN’T SEEN NOTHIN’ YET

A POWER PACKED CARDINAL CRISIS ACTIVATED SOLSTICE

Its just a few days after the 6th exact Uranus Pluto square. We are already walking on broken glass and shattered dreams. 

There is a NEW MOON to further hammer home the new beginnings motif. 

The preview, the day before Solstice is a new nuance in the ongoing GRAND CARDINAL CROSSROADS saga.

VENUS, enters the CARDINAL CROSSROADS

VENUS, the beautiful planet of women, love, wealth, beauty, relationships and balance is in Capricorn at 14+ degrees and SQUARING URANUS which may be just as painful as it sounds. She is also conjunct to PLUTO at 12+ degrees of the practical sign of reality, wealth, power and corporate structures.

WOMEN will lead the revolution! They are ready to take back their power in the world and confront old PATRIARCHAL- Plutocratic platforms which rule every single aspect of our world- religion, culture, beauty and take them down to build a new world in the upcoming revolution.

WHAM BAM THANK YOU Ma’am.

Venus rules $$$$ Bling and PLuto is the SUPER BIG BUCKS, The Koch brothers, Federal reserve, etc. The two planets are opposite the U.S. Natal SUN and also square to its natal Saturn at 15 degrees of LIBRA- you know what that means-KARMA, laws, justice, balance. Venus rules Libra BTW.  I would expect another  major financial crisis to hit the fan or to start an avalanche.

Mars is also sextiling Uranus from Aquarius,they are in mutual reception.  Mars is in Uranus’s home sign and Uranus is in Mars’s home sign. This further puts the speed to: LIQUEFY.

DECEMBER 21

URANUS U-TURN @ 2:45 pm PST/5:45 pm EST

URANUS turns DIRECT in motion after being RETROGRADE since July 21. Planets are always at their most powerful as they station to change direction. Can you hear the screeching?

URANUS rules protests, liberation, revolution, freedom, chaos, Hi- tech inventions and there have been protests the likes of which we haven’t seen since the 60’s over Ferguson and the Staten Island killing of a black man negligently by police who weren’t indited for murder. The revolution is just going to get bigger with Uranus moving direct. I am so happy about this.

WINTER SOLSTICE is at 3:03 pm PST/ 6:03 pm EST/ 11:03 pm GMT

The Winter Solstice occurs during a Void of course Moon, since 4:35 am EST.

As with all Void Moons, it is a very spiritual time, a good time to do mundane things.

phases of the Moon tara greene

The Moon enters earthy, patient, practical, mature Capricorn at 5:25 pm PST/8:25 pm EST.

The NEW MOON occurs ten minutes later at 5:35 pm PST/8:35 pm EST/ December 22 at 1:35 am GMT at Zero degrees 6 minutes..

 

Of course all Aries, and Capricorns with planets at the middles degrees are getting personally affected by these energies. Also those born on the first few days of all of the Cardinal Signs- ARIES and LIBRA.

SCORPIO born at the very last days are also feeling much pressure as are all LATE FIXED SIGNS- TAURUS, LEO, AQUARIUS too.

GEMINI is getting quincunxed from early to mid degrees by the Capricorn energies.

LEO’s born August 13-17 are also feeling hard hit with Jupiter’s Retrograde as are AQUARIANS born Feb 13-17. Leo is also Qunicunx to Venus and Opposite Mars. You Lions may be feeling it financially, in the heart and of course the chaos.

SAGITTARIUS your time is coming up soon. Neptune is on your case anyway plus Chiron.

VIRGO – take a break for now. Can you? EARLY VIRGO get Saturn rapping your hard working knuckles soon.

THE NODES of the Moon are squaring Venus and Pluto and the South Node is conjunct Uranus.

Uranus/South Node to Venus, women and power, PLuto is a a huge green light signal to jettison the past. All the old scripts, the religious make belief stories about Eve, which define women as lesser than man, as his subordinate, chattel, just sexual orifices for male satisfaction, objects, feared and scorned will be shredded. 

Saturn, the ruling planet of Capricorn is at the very last “critical degree” of Scorpio, also indicating an end to a sex and money cycle about misuse of power, secrets,control, manipulation, the psyche, the shadow. Saturn in Scorpio is dealing with all the sexual fear, and unconscious emotions which govern us until we become conscious which is Uranus’ role.  The Uranus Pluto squares are to make us humans with real higher consciousness of ourselves each other and our world.  We have been acting mainly unconsciously.

THE ASTRO-CARTOGRAPHY MAP of the world shows where the Solstice HOT SPOTS triggers are most powerful.

astro map Tara Greene

 The “planets” and what they symbolize will show their powers on the spots they touch.

THE SUN and the Moon are North/South straight through South Africa on the West side going through Namibia,Central Africa, Niger and Western Libya near Tripoli. Continuing North through Venice Italy, near Zurich, Prague,and North through OSLO Norway. Nobel Peace prize ruckus anyone?

The Sun Descends through Fairbanks Alaska, right through the ALBERTA TAR SANDS and Fort McMurray. I predict there will be major protests here against the Tar Sands and with the Canadian government. This Continues near Edmonton Alberta,the Sun cuts a swathe south through America exiting at NEW ORLEANS. I feel there is a serious earth shake up coming to this entire Mississippi area. The Sun setting on the Tar sands indicates it is calling it quits time and moving to SOLAR power.

Sun descends through CANCUN Mexico, through ECUADOR, BOLIVIA and  PARAGUAY the new conscious and politically aware,fastest growing economies in South America relatively and the Sun’s path travels near Montevideo and finally exits at Mar Del Plata in Argentina.

The Sun Ascends through Indonesia, Singapore and Macau and up norther eastern China.

PLUTO VENUS with Uranus nearby meet in the Guyana Highlands. Pluto and Venus cross in Raleigh North Carolina and north near Detroit,Buffalo, Thunder Bay in Canada and up through FLIN FLON, yes that a real place in Manitoba. Travels North to Fort Good Hope up in the Far Northern Territories of Canada, Land which will be challenged as to ownership as the arctic ice melts. They travel through Finland, Belarus, Romania and Bulgaria.

PLUTO VENUS and the North Node cross at Bontang Malaysia.

Jupiter and Pluto cross near Yellowknife.Venus Mercury Mars the Moon and Pluto are all applying pressure to the oil and mineral rich territory of the northern parts of British Columbia. Saturn is sitting on VALDEZ ALASKA, OIL SPILL ANYONE?

URANUS AND VENUS cross exactly through ISTAMBUL TURKEY indicating economic unrest here. Venus continues west of Alexandria Egypt.

THE NORTH NODE travels through Ankarra Turkey and right through Cairo Egypt.

MARS travels through Uzbekistan and Mashhad Iran. 

Saturn and the Sun cross in Saudi Arabia, Saturn going right through Iraq and up through Georgia.

Saturn Ascends through the Maldives through central India and Nepal  and crosses with Chiron in the Xinjiang area of China.

Uranus goes right through the UKRAINE indicating more turmoil in this entire region. 

URANUS And the Moon cross in Zengxhou China.The Moon is the people so expect protests, and revolution in this area.

Taurus Solar Eclipse May 9/10, take the bull by the horns Astrology

TAURUS SOLAR ECLIPSE May 9/10 2013
The 2nd of three SOUTH NODAL eclipses in a row. 

 spells I-N-T-E-N-S-E!   This is NO BULL.

Solar Eclipses are Super CHARGED NEW MOONS

This annular Solar Eclipse occurs at 19+ degrees TAURUS and will display the beautiful RING OF FIRE, much sought after by eclipse seekers.

 

It will ONLY be visible from western  AUSTRALIA  across most of the Northern Part and passing very close to New Guinea and out over the Pacific Ocean.

No we wont’ see it here in North America or Europe or most of the world. All solar eclipse effects last about a year afterwards.

Australia was also in the shadow pathway of the November 2012 Total Solar Eclipse in Scorpio. The area where the eclipse shadow passes is highlighted.

Where the planetary lines criss cross is where the effects of these planets will be felt the most. Ottawa Canada is one of the prime ares in the world. Moon Sun and Neptune cross here indicating the people and the government will  be at cross purposes especially over false illusions, debt, oil. I believe the PM Harper will be outed.

Cambodia is a highlighted prosperous area for mining and expansion as well as Myanmar. Vietnam are also highlighted for old wounds that need to be healed.

Dangerous areas are Iran, because  URANUS and PLUTO revolutionary atomic energy, religious fanatics, power-hungry Plutocrats cross here. Danger from tsunami’s north of New Guinea and in the Pacific Ocean due west of San Francisco.

Area in Northern Russia receives a lot of  focus as well as called Arkhangelsk, sounds like Archangels. Maybe a prominent shipping port or source of unusual magnetic energy? and  Madagascar.

What does this mean?

How does this eclipse affect you? Where is Taurus in your chart? Everyone’s got the sign of the Bull somewhere. Usually the natural 2nd house of money values romance. This is where the big light is blocked out to allow significant DNA, magnetic shifts in your consciousness in.

TAURUS, the first earth  FIXED sign, is the body and the earth itself.

From ancient times Bulls were worshipped because their horns re-created the pattern of the Moon, waxing and  waning between their horns. Taurus is Feminine, the goddess. It is sensual, practical, resourceful. It can be too stubborn and inflexible. Taurus, ruled by VENUS,  governs, resources, land, money, all physical things. The New York stock exchange was founded under the sign of the Taurus Constellation. ie. The BULL market. Taurus rules the arts, creature comforts, money, luxury, jewellery, smelling the roses, its romantic, sensual. Gets the job done. Can be lazy.

AUSTRALIA

Why is Australia in the shadow of the Solar Eclipse path? What is the meaning of this?

Australia is the oldest land on the Earth. Literally four and half billion years old. The most ancient Zircon’s which have preserved the first days of earth’s creation come from Western Australia. This discovery changed the way Geologists viewed the earth. The aborigines of Australia are the most ancient record keepers in the world, claiming that their history goes back in their memories 60,000 years. The symbol of Australia’s ancient wisdom and sacred red rocks is of honouring the earth HERSELF. Those who are aware can tune in and read these ancestral records.

On May 10 “at 6:31am on May 10, 2013, those gathering in the area will see the sun will emerge into view from beyond the east-northeast horizon. It will first resemble a pair of lobster claws and then when in full view, a horseshoe with upturned pointed tips. Finally with the dark disk of the Moon appearing to move down as opposed to the Sun moving up and off-centered “ring of fire” materializes, sitting just above the horizon. This wonderfully weird effect lasts 109 seconds, ending when the ring appears to “break” at the Sun’s lower limb. Within minutes the Sun again resembles a horseshoe, but now the pointed tips are directed downward.” – Guy Ottewell

Thanks to Carol Ann Ciocco at Galactic Free Press for some inspirational ideas I have included.

The eclipse will pass Papua New Guinea where it is 2013 and they are “BURNING witches!” Then over the Solomon Islands where Gay rights are severely prohibited and punishable.

The Eclipses’ shadow is highlighting how the Divine Feminine energies are being dishonoured.

All of these repressive Feminine and human rights energies are ANTI FEMININE, ANTI-GODDESS Anti-VENUS.  Nature, the earth, the stars and the Feminine were worshipped since the beginning of human awareness on this planet 60,000 years ago up until around 5-7,000 years ago.  So it was only in the last say 1/8 th of this cycle that the Patriarchy separated out from honoring the earth, the Great Mother and split off the mind from the heart, scorned and denied women, separated sex from nature and the true obvious cellular knowing that we are all born of woman, are all one with nature, all life forms and the earth is our mother.

VENUS the planet of LOVE, has recently re-appeared from her Underworld journey on MAY 6 appearing as the beautiful EVENING STAR. She is at ZERO degrees GEMINI on MAy 9/10 indicating  brand new communications, ideas and thinking about love, values, beauty and resources.  Venus in Gemini indicates seeing beyond apparent duality, unifying the opposites.

PLANETARY ASPECTS

Taurus Solar eclipse Tara greene

click on chart to show larger

The Eclipse has asteroid Athena exactly conjunct the Sun and the Moon. The Greek city of Athens is dedicated to the Goddess of wisdom. Yes Greece will be highlighted for the next 6 months to a year because of this.

The Eclipse has Mars and Mercury in Taurus surrounding and conjunct the South Node. Indicating that taking our time to thoroughly use mind and body together, helps us release the past.

The Sun Moon Athena Mercury Mars South Node are also bunched up with dwarf planet Sedna who functions as a Goddess orbiting far beyond Pluto who opens a spiritual gateway to Higher dimensional realities. Sedna is an Inuit, Sea Goddess. Her resurrection into archetypal world consciousness indicates she and we are ready to work in her polar oceanic feeling world. We must take care of the world’s oceans as we all came from the ocean originally.  Asteroid Goddess JUNO squares the SUN and Moon at 15 degrees Aquarius, the very powerful mid-degrees. Juno represents specifically Female wisdom; in AQUARIUS- this is the need to revolutionize women’s subordinate role for the past 2,000 years. FREEDOM, inclusion, leadership, co-operation, respecting people, are all Aquarian hallmarks.

The energy is building to the next Uranus Pluto square on May 20- the old order of things and the new revolution are going head to head, even stronger now. The forces of evolution cannot be stopped.

March 2,3rd Mars at opposition, Isreal,Iran,Canada,U.S. and more, Astrology mystic musings by Tara Greene

NUMEROLOGY is one of my passions. I see symbolic number sequences as coded messages from the cosmos. Thousands of people have reported seeing 11:11 and other multiples of the same number regularly since digital clocks made this aparent. Everything is symbolic, life speaks to us as images, that is the Soul’s language. Dreams speak in images, and all of life is a dream from the soul’ s perspective. Have I lost a few of you already?

If you ve been following my Blog and thanks for doing so. I have written about 2/22 as a higher frequency from the 11:11:11.

This Sat March 3 is the next in another higher frequency integration. I feel that this next one will happen on 3 12 12 which feels more integrated, the 3rd is an appetiser. More on that later.

Friday March 2 ultra watery emotional

Moon mooves into Cancer sign of the milk of human kindness. Moon makes lovely TRINES, nice harmonious aspects to dreamy fantasy riddled spiritual soul mate-ville planet of creativity and escapism NEPTUNE. Neptune rules oil and with Moon also Trine Chiron the wounded healer in Pisces later this day, we’ll be weeping into our gas tanks, pocketbooks and at home in our stomachs from higher food prices. Get out the maxi-absorbent tissues please.

Moon also squares Mercury in Aries and Uranus this day. So feelings, thinking and unconscious reactions of irritability will be in the air.Conflicted feelings thinking about that revolutionary change or home sweet home.

3/3/12 is an important day Numerology wise but it is also MARS OPPOSITE THE SUN

Mars Retrograde is very big in the sky. The warrior God opposite the sun brings conflict out into the open arena and fans the Fires of War.

Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is going to Ottawa,  Canada‘s capital on March 2 and 3rd before going to meet President Obama in Washington. Canada’s Prime Minster Stephen Harper has pitched Canada’s support for Israel, so this is clearly a push for Canada to help Israel protect itself from the continued strengthening of Iran’s nuclear program. Harper is  a very conservative leader, and it seems he has bee, to my mind an obvious patsy of the U.S. {ever since Prime Minster Mulroney} sending thousands of Canadian troops to  fight on the front lines in Afghanistan when Canada was always a peace keeping and not a front line defense since World War II which has resulted in Canada’s reputation as a peacekeeping nation falling off that role in the world’s eyes.  Here’s a link to the article

http://news.nationalpost.com/2012/03/01/why-israels-prime-minister-is-coming-to-canada-before-heading-to-the-u-s/

Here is the astrology chart of March 3 2012: click on it to see larger image:

MArch 3 2012                              

With Mars Retrograde at 13 degrees of  Virgo opposed to the Sun at 13 degree of Pisces BOTH square the  U.S. Natal Uranus at 8 degrees of Gemini and the U.S. natal Mars at 21 degrees of Gemini. I see this as unusual, unexpected rash words, sucker punches,ego posturing  {the sun}  and calling out, but  still a war of words as it is ambivalent energy as Mars isnt going to act YET. The Pisces Sun is usually very compassionate and Mars in Virgo  is slow to nit pick but will still insist on perfecting and  tallying up all the reasons why it should act hawkish and not dovelike.

Israel has its natal Mercury, how it communicates, at 10 degrees of Gemini so the Mars/ Sun opposition activates its mouthpiece and thinking through Mr. Netanyahu, all talk, smokescreens and shadows at this point. Mars will go direct April 13, then the situation will begin to BURN.

CANADA

has its North Node, its highest spiritual Goal at 17 degrees of Virgo which Mars has just passed, its South Node, symbolizing its past, is at 17 degrees of Pisces near to where the Sun is and will be on March 7th . Canada also has its natal Uranus {individuality, technology, freedom} at 8 degrees of Cancer right opposite where Pluto is right now. This signifies a huge unexpected revolutionary change in how Canada wields its Power. Pluto rules the shadow, where we blame THEM ” the other” for what we ourselves are doing but hiding from, in denial of and won’t accept. Pluto is all things  nuclear, power, weapons, generators. Pluto is death and destruction.

Canada’s Jupiter, its’ bigness, compassion,optimism,risk-taking and expansiveness is at  7 degrees of Pisces. Chiron, the wounded healer {symbol looks like a Key}  is sitting pretty close to that. Will Canada finally feel confident enough, because it’s always felt insecure, to come out of the Pisces backrooms to loom large on the world’s stage?

Canada’s Mars is at 5 degrees of Virgo directly opposite  Chiron so definitely feeling insecure in spite of its great showing economically these days that point makes it defensive in extreme and so just like a bee when threatened it will sting in defense but lose its life in order to do that. Jupiter in Pisces opposite Mars in Virgo with this image reminds me of Muhammed Ali’s famous line that he “Floats like a butterfly but stings like a bee.”

In terms of negotiations, peacekeeping, relationships and talks, Canada has Venus at 15 degrees of Gemini, so they can talk till the cows come home, but won’t take sides. They can be great peacekeepers and ambassadors.  Mars/Sun Xactly squares Canada’s Venus too. So there may be economic pressures and hidden agendas and incentives for Canada to stir the pot.

Interestingly enough Canada’s Venus is exactly at the degree where Venus will eclipse the Sun June 5-6.  The Venus in Gemini X spot indicates that Canada will play a significant and major role in negotiating this situation.

My. Netanyahu will then speak with President Obama about what to do with Iran, Obama definitely has his hands full these days. He is going through his Saturn square Saturn, and his role in history is pivotal. His karma is beying writ large now. I am on his side.

Interestingly enough Mars turned Retrograde at 23 degrees of Virgo in January. Obama’s Natal Mars is at 22 degrees of Virgo exactly conjunct the U.S. birth charts Natal Neptune. Neptune rules oil remember. So we are going over the territory again and its all about fighting for oil.

The Moon on this day at 15 degrees of Cancer is conjunct the U.S. Sun at 13 degrees of Cancer. It symbolizes a New Moon cycle for the U.S. The Moon represents the people’s moods and they need emotional securityand  protection for their homes and native land. But most importantly the  Moon in Cancer is all about WOMEN and their rights to shine and be the source. Women’s issues need to be re-assessed in light of the ultra conservative GOP stuff being shot off in the Republican party presidential election. Women will rise up and oppose this ultra conservative  birth control issue and backlash/whiplash the GOP  in the election.

Pluto at 9 degrees of Capricorn is beginning to oppose the U.S. Sun. The Big Bang is on its way. Pluto, the force {with Saturn} behind 911 as they were in opposition is once again being felt throughout the land. This is the Plutocracy {the ultra-rich and powerful} attempting to defeat the U.S. democracy, its light, what it stands for and the destruction of  big bisuness. Capitalism on the way out. Fascism in danger of taking over out of fear and wanting total control. Pluto and Uranus begin their series of 7 squares this year. Pluto and Uranus when last conjunct in late 60’ss seeded the Flower Power movement, the summer of LOVE, a cultural revolution. Now those seeds will begin to Grow. The revolutionary energy that began in Egypt, Tuniasia, Libya, is ongoing in Syria, snuffed out in Iran is not going away anytime soon. The OCCUPY WALL STREET movement { a Canadian invention from Ad Busters} is also just the tip of the iceburg. A groundswell of revolutionary ch- ch- ch- change is upon us with a force with technology behind it infintely greater than what happened in the 60’s. This time it will be economic,about individuals, fierce, warlike. But such is the nature of the world and its cycles.

Saturn Retrograde and stationary at 29 degrees the always critical degree of Libra. symbolizes the the LAST of MR. NICE GUY. Saturn is the cosmic cop and we have enjoyed him being rather gentle and trying to bring balance into our lives since late 2009 so this is the last of it for the next 28-29 years to be exact. Saturn has inlate 2011 and will again in April and again in September move into an exacty Square the U.S. Natal Capricorn at  27 degrees { Retrograde} when the country was founded. This is a karmic axis if there ever was one. President Obama has his natal Saturn at 25 degrees retrograde when he was born so his fate as well is in the hands of Father Time, the karmic cop. “As you sow so shall you reap.” is Saturn’s slogan. I know you think Jesus said it.

I warmly invite u feedback. Please comment:

 

 

 

Saturn Re-loaded “critical degree” times by Tara Greene Astrologer Tarot Psychic spiritual coach

SATURN aka the cosmic cop is RETROGRADE @ 29 degrees, “slowly he turned step by step inch by inch…”

the grim reaper

the grim reaper Saturn

of Libra. The very last and Critical degree in the sign of Relationships, Balance, Karma,the Arts, the judicial system, beauty, the sign of marriage and relationships. All things in relationship to each other, which is in essence ALL THAT IS are being weighed in the Egyptian Great Goddess Maat’s scales of Justice. All relationship issues especially marriage are being revamped, repealed, revealed, re-enacted, renewed, renovated, reinvigorated, resting,reset, reviewed. The cosmic Doctor Saturn is giving us all a big prescription, a time for tonic.  A general Rx time as this is the Retrograde glyph.

Interesting that as Saturn went Retrograde and  The California upholding of  Gay marriages law was reinstated.

NOTE on your calendars that  the “critical weighing time” lasts from  Feb 7 until June 25th!

Saturn, also known as THE GRIM REAPER will bring endings for many relationships that aren’t in balance on all levels to fold during this time period. Literal ones, his and hers ones and political alliances, Laws will be repealed, government imbalances will be brought under scrutiny, tax overhauls, arts funding, redressing what is fair and what isn’t on many levels. Saturn is considered to be ‘exalted” in Libra which means it expresses itself  in the most fair way as Saturn is always hard, harsh, Father Time.

So Saturn is giving us a last chance to redress all the imbalances with ALL OUR RELATIONS over these many months since Saturn entered Libra waay back in October  29, 2009 {with a small Retro back to Virgo} then straight ahead in Libra since July 21, 2010-  read more about Saturn’s escapades in my entire article here  http://taratarot.com/id34.html

The REALLY critical parts are Feb 7 – March 3rd when Saturn is standing almost still at that infamous 29th degree, grinding the message in as it were. Expect things to be harsh, tough, leaden,heavy, weighty, difficult, slow.  So a lot of literally hanging in the balance, waiting with bated breath, waiting for the shoe to drop, so quiet you could hear a pin drop kind of thing.

Then Saturn will revisit that 29th degree from September 27-October 5th when Saturn then enters SCORPIO! And a new era begins.

A VERY TOUGH SATURN RETURN for those born 1982-83

BORN on January 1982,September 82-November 1982; then May 1983-Aaugust 83 ? This will be a very tough Saturnine REALITY CHECK! a Whopper of a hard ‘n heavy one for your 1st Saturn Return for all of you kids born with Saturn and Pluto in late Libra. Life isn’t easy, no bed of roses, you may have thought your were ENTITLED, BESPOKE etc. unh unh unh.

Sorry Kids, I also have a son born in June of 1983. I understand but it is time to wake up and smell the coffee,the writing on the wall etc.

Also if you are A BABY BOOMER ? Born November 1952-May 1953, and then August 1953-October 1953

Your 2nd Saturn return will also be pretty harsh. Health issues,depression, arthritis, divorce will all be prevalent.

Although you also will have Neptune at the 22 degree point and Saturn will be conjunct your Natal Neptune planet of spirituality, illusion, delusion, addictions, bliss, oneness, yoga, ashrams and not to mention SOUL MATES. This means manifesting your highest dreams, letting go of material reality and following the higher spiritual path of someone who renounces material and worldly things.  Many of the boomers will choose to opt for simplification and the pure life. And this will affect those born up until December of 1955 who have Neptune at 29 degrees.

What falls apart, down, into place, has worn out its welcome, will take mucho time to integrate back into place.

Who gets hit the hardest?

All late Librans of course born between Oct 15-22nd.  Saturn goes back to 22 degrees of Libra. But also if you are born late in ARIES also 15 -22nd of March. CANCER  July 15-22 and CAPRICORN, born Jan 15- 22 especially Capricorn as Saturn is your planetary ruler, head honcho, first in command. 

If you know your natal chart check for where all the late degrees of these cardinal signs -22-29 degrees are in your chart to see where you will be tested. I can help guide you out of the murky depths.  taragreene@sacredartscentre.com

 YOU WILL  BE TESTED. WE WILL  ALL  BE TESTED.

Think of it like this, the modern metaphor for Saturn Retrograde is just like going through Security at the airport. You have to wait in line for aeons, you have to take off your shoes,surrender your belongings, maybe get searched, patted down, invaded, x-rayed, etc. If you don’t past muster with the powers that be, you may be tasered, and hauled off for interrogation on suspicion of being a terrorist {substitute wall street occupier, political activist, revolutionary.}

But, there are other factors at work now like higher consciousness PLUS the influences of the infamous Uranus, planet of Revolution in early Aries squaring Pluto now one of the major hallmarks of 2012. Remember that Saturn is the Ancient ruler of Aquarius, until that  planet was discovered in 1781 by Hershel, the symbol looks like an H.

Vedic/India Astrologers only use the 7 traditional “planets” so Saturn does rule revolutionary Aquarius to them. So this brings in added meaning. Saturn Retrograde then will take us back over the revolutionary track that was laid over a year ago and was never completed to the people’s will and the peole will triumph and will be victorious in Syria, and also in Iran.  I will talk about Iran’s astrology in the next article. Modern Iran was founded Feb 1,  1979 making it a,what else? an Aquarian country. Still needing the people’s revolution.

LIBRAN COUNTRIES

ARGENTINA  AUSTRIA  CHINA  EGYPT  JAPAN  SIBERIA  TIBET  BELGIUM  BOTSWANA  FIJI  NIGERIA  UGANDA

How many of these are in the news these days?  China’s economy will go south of the border. TIBET will demand freedom from China, Siberia, feeling its enormous raw materials wealth will also seek to break from China. Belgium is the seat of  The EU in much trouble these days, and will see much more tightening of their belts.

MEDITATION TOOL

As Mars is also Retrograde in Virgo, the work sign during this time period Jan 24- April 14 things will feel decidedly S_L_O_W  as 

molasses

EARLY MERCURY RETROGRADE ALERT March 12 -April 4 

From 6 degrees Aries back to 23 degrees Pisces on April 4 where it turns DIRECT. But it will take until  April 23 till it’s past point of Retrogradation an dits clear communications again.

So take this very precious rare time, it’s a real PEARL, a  gift, I call it FAT TIME, when time dilates and slows down.

especially when time is going so fast, a rare treasure to review, reset new intentions, relax, patience is a virtue now.

Meditate on where you’ve been, who you were then, who was/still is in your life, what you’ve been doing, thinking about.

 What goals have you met? What have you learned? How have you changed?  since 2010.

How were you  anticipating 2012? Here you are!

It’s time to let go of all old habits, activities and action { MARS} old vendettas, hard habits, work and relationships both within and without that do not suit the new evolving higher consciousness and transparency that is being ushered in now.

Thar will be no fooling in relationships,to Mother Nature, in beauty,or injustice allowed after this time period. Saturn as Grim reaper will put an end to that sort of thing. We cannot evolve unless we face the truth, our inner truth and let die the old, outworn, patterns.

Just breathe. Follow the breath in and out naturally deeply slowly in through your nose into the belly out through your mouth. Say to yourself who is it who is breathing? over and over and over, Saturn brings discipline, routine, realness.

As you do this every day, you will go deeper and deeper into your Self.  Simple be aware of your ingrained old outworn karmic patterns of thought, the behaviors, the patriarchal lead weight of rules that you were indoctrinated with.

If you are in a relationship the criteria to ask is Do you each honor the other? Are you equals? Whats the balance point?

Simply ask your Higher Self, your Guardian Angels to come and oversee you, simply let go of all the excess weight you are carrying. Ideas, beliefs, emotional weight that isn’t yours, your children’s issues, your parents, the weight of history.

Do this every day, write down what you have learned at the end of each session. It’s basically a whole month of the 29th degree. Be your own interrogator, get to the truth, the truth will set you free.

The song for this Saturn Retro is LIVE AND LET DIE by Paul McCArtney

Dont be afraid of losing your relationship, you can’t lose what you don’t really have. If you can’t set your loved one free then it’s not love. It is possession, and fear. The famous psychologist Carl Jung said there are only two emotions, love and fear. they cannot co-exist.

The saying is Art is long and time is fleeting. But now Time is slow,and so is art during the Saturn Libra retrograde. Make art, make beauty, make love.Love yourself,

No time for pushing and fussing. Allow yourself to remember how to relax. Spend time in nature if you can, do yoga, cook wholesome slow cooked meals. Be sentimental.

VALENTINE’S DAY WILL BE HEAVY, OLD FASHIONED

Remember the good old days and recreate them. The more you go slow now the more you will be rewarded. It’s still winter in  the north,and in North America even though there isn’t any snow, be like the bear and hibernate, dream a lot, sleep a lot, think of Camelot.

Ultimately you will be freer than ever. This is the real serious necessary step and prep for 2012.

Blessing  your shedding. You are like the butterfly entering the coccon stage. It will be dark and you are feeling restricted, the unknown can be scary or exciting. Deep inside, your inner knowing senses that something bigger, brighter, more glorious and freeing will emerge as you ALLOW to die  your old habits so you may be reborn as a beautiful butterfly.
