Pisces time, Goddess Astarte, by Tara Greene

PISCES season begins Feb 18 @  9:33 pm/ Feb 19 @ 12:33 am/ 5:34 am GMT.

I have felt more channeling of mages and synchronicity. 

Feb 18 The Moon trines NEPTUNE for some lovely intuitive energy in the wee hours.

Pay attention to your night and waking dreams all day. Try to recollect what you were dreaming about.

Moon is inconjunct to SATURN in Sag around dinner time

Be careful that you understand what is real and what isn’t. This may be perplexing to the fantasy lover in you. 

Moon opposes PLUTO and squares URANUS we’re off into the CARDINAL square energy again. 

The Goddess ASTARTE has been appearing in images and symbols to me lately again. She was a Babylonian Goddess of love, like Venus. I have always had fantasies and inserts from past lives which used to appear to me when I was about seven years old. They take place in Ancient Babylonian or Egyptian times. I came across these Goddesses through reading about archeology, in Museums or studying Art History later on. I have always felt drawn to her. The name Tara is a derivative of Astarte derived from the Sanskrit Sitara and the name Esther in Hebrew is also derived from that name, which was my given second name at birth. Her name also engendered Ishtar,  Ashtereth, Aphrodite, Ashtaroth, Asteria and Ariadne- a Spider Woman mythology.  

She had an ancient temple at Ashkelon, in Israel near where I worked and lived years ago. She was worshipped under the name of Atar-gatis, as a woman with the tail of a fish, and fish were accordingly sacred to her. She is also related to Mermaids and PISCES energies.

Elsewhere the dove was her sacred symbol. The symbol which Christians adopted to symbolize Christ when the Age of Pisces started. Her sacred sexual rites were later denounced by the Patriarchy of course.  This is where all the fighting is going on today in her ancient sacred lands in Syria, Iraq, Israel, Jordan and parts of egypt and Turkey. Astarte worship needs to be returned as women honoring their sacred blood in Red Tents again. . 

Goddess Astarte, Tara Greene

Goddess Astarte 

 She is also an Asteroid #672 Astarte discovered  Sept 21, 1908. She governs sexual love,maternity and fertility and is also a war Goddess associated with leopards or lions and snakes as transformational and healing signifiers. Both of which was always  my totem animals. All women with strong fire signs relate to lions. Snakes relate to Scorpio energies as well as Kundalini powers and menstruation.

ASTARTE as an Asteroid or dwarf planet and she has a 4+ year orbit. She is now at 18+ degrees of GEMINI close to Fixed Star Rigel which brings riches and long-lasting honor.

ASTARTE is opposed to SATURN right now, a karmic stance and will be at 19+ degrees and in square to JUPITER and CHIRON in PISCES and the NODES Of the MOON on the 29th of February which is a LEAP DAY and a day out of time. 

This symbolizes the Ancient Fertility Goddesses energy being very much available and downloadable for effective  healing of womb and sexual energy. My memories of her as a child were in sacred sexual practices when the Priestesses were bleeding, to heal the male warriors after they have come back from profane bloodshed of war. The only sacred bloodshed is women’s menstruation. 

The old fears about women’s sacred blood must be erased. Honor womens’ sacred feminine wisdom. Women, do not run around when you get your period it is a time for turning within, to listening to your womb and flowing with your sacred blood. It is a natural cleansing time.

The Patriarchy tells you to stuff a chlorinated toxic most popularly advertize tampon up your vagina to hide your blood away from yourself and everyone else. Tampons are a political tool and a weapon of a conspiracy to silence women’s power.  A women who used a deva cup, a silicone menstrual cup to gather menstrual blood was vilified recently showing her menstrual blood. Never use toxic commercial tampons ever. Use organic cotton.  

I know people are squeamish around blood. But the blood of death is what should make everyone squeamish. The simulated blood from video games, films, movies, TV Shows, is what should  make you sick. Not the blood of life. 

Tune into ASTARTE’s wisdom she is beautiful. She is the stars. Like NUIT or NUith egyptian Goddess of the Milky Way she is all around us.

PLease share widely. I am feeling totally called to be an Active High-Priestess once again. My work must change. I cannot write so much every day like this anymore. I am needing to write courses, my book and embody my Chrone Goddess artist shamanic self. 

your comments are most appreciated.

Virgo New Moon apocalypse, resurrection revelations

August 25 Virgo New Moon, 2+ degrees 7:12 am PDT/ 10:12 am EDT/ 2:12 pm GMT is a triply Virgo experience Sun Moon and ruler Mercury in the 6th sign of work, service to others, humility, health, discipline, analyzing, organizing, the harvest, earth mother, perfectionist.

A very spiritual and earthy New MOON.

Sun and Moon are opposite in alignment with Archangel Gabriel’s Fixed Star marker Fomalhaut in the Constellation of Pisces Australis.

A foggy but real paradise. Dreamy and practical. Addictions and the cure. A homeopathic New moon.

Gabriel blows the trumpet on Judgement Day and the dead rise again in the Book of Revelations. This is an Apocalyptic New Moon.

This is Tarot Trump #20 called Judgement or THE AEON in the Thoth tarot.

Inspirational Card of the Day

Rider Waite deck Judgement Trump Card

Judgement Day Angel Gabriel Blows his trumpet

Rider Waite Tarot deck #20

Mars and SATURN are exactly CONJUNCT  hours after the New Moon @ 17 degrees 40 minutes SCORPIO.  The Dark  Forces are fighting back mightily now.

DIE OR BE REBORN willingly.

Do we let ruthless power-hungry crazed muslim fanatics with 12th century mentality destroy innocent people? Do we let militarized police choke hold and shoot innocent black people on the streets of the U.S? Do we accept the status quo?

Mars rules Scorpio. he is trigger happy. The warrior and the Lord of Karma join forces for the showdown for the next 28-29 year cycle of destruction and resurrection. 

YOU better circle that potent sore point in your natal chart.

The two malefics of the Zodiac joined in the 8th house of  sexual reproductivity create huge hostility, between men and women, deep transformational cuts, bloodshed, ruthlessness, death, rebirth, transformation Gaza, Ferguson Mo, ISIS. 

Literally women and men having difficulty in reproducing, menopause. Not to mention secret power struggles between warring financial stratas, banks, insurance companies, tax laws.

This is an extremely difficult aspect but you can use it for cutting through all illusions to transforming your very soul. 

BE RUTHLESS. Declutter all things that are in the way. I need to hear this myself.

Mars & Saturn right on my Ascendant. A new cycle in actions and karma is rising from the ashes. 

VENUS and Jupiter in LEO in the sign of the heart and leadership are both square to Mars and Saturn creating new karma and love affairs. But it aint easy or pretty.It’s like speed dating in resurrectionville.

The pairs of opposites Venus and Mars and the planet of opportunity and restriction  evenly balance out here.

Saturna and Mars are Trine to CHIRON in PISCES  who is working on bringing spiritual healing to the aggression, anger and deep shadows emerging in the world which are troubling Ferguson, ISIS etc. but are necessary so we can see them.

Chiron is quincunx to Venus in LEO which is also quincunx to PLUTO in CAPRICORN.

Women who are strong in the work force are doubting if they love their men who may not be as traditionally strong and successful as they are. I am seeing this crop up all over the place. We don’t know how to bless this aspect. You want love or money? Status or heart centeredness? Traditional roles are breaking down.

Saturn and Mars are also quincunx to Uranus in ARIES which is quincunx to Mercury in VIRGO at 16-17 degrees.

URANUS is the FINGER OF GOD or YOD point in this lunation.

Uranus is still RETROGRADE at 16 degrees Aries and closely conjunct the SOUTH NODE at 20 degrees Aries and Goddess of DISCORD ERIS at 23 degrees Aries.

The war between the old Guard (SOUTH NODE) Ram headed Warriors of fundamental religions- Muslim, Christian, Jewish or whichever and the new techno freedom and humanitarian Aquarian ideals are battling it out. Aquarius symbolizes the new direction. Gay marriage, universal health care, freedom and respect for all people men and women. Freedom of information- Virgo beyond religious ideas which are all man-made. 

We need to call in the Angels to help us now. Everyone must do this. Gabriel announces. Listen with your 3rd ear. Listen to your inner voice. your heart.
