Love as Psychopomp by Napoleon Brousseau

It will take until December 18th for Venus to bypass her Retrograde degree again. Pay attention to the day when Venus changes signs.

Venus Retrograde is a time to reconsider your relationships and while she is in Scorpio to do your deep Shadow work. Check where the Venus retrograde path falls in your natal chart from 25 Libra to 10 degrees Scorpio.

Venus only turns Retrograde 7-8% of the time. Only 7-8% of the world’s population is born during a Venus Retrograde. Every 18-19 months she disappears for 40 days into the Underworld as is described by the ancient story of Goddess Inanna in the Underworld and changes from being the beautiful wishing evening star to the Morningstar.

Symbols of the degrees of Retrograde and Stationary

Janduz interpretation written by Astrotheme for 10 degrees Scorpio is

‘ A hare watches a bright star in the sky and does not see the gun is pointed at it.” The stationary degree of 25 Libra Janduz from Astrotheme.

“A knight wearing a coat of mail and holding a sword flies to aid a man threatened by a lion. “
SEX

Scorpio governs the reproductive organs. Venus is considered to be weakened in Scorpio, Mars home sign in traditional astrology.  Women would be way more likely to experience painful problems with their menstrual periods, ovarian cysts, ectopic pregnancies, profuse bleeding, difficulty conceiving, having miscarriages, abortions or other problems.  Men may also experience sexual problems like erectile dysfunction or premature ejaculation. 

The Full Moon is in Taurus October 24/25 ruled by Venus

This may prove to be a time of major oppositions between the sexes as Taurus is notoriously stubborn. the locking of horns, The taunting the bull with a red cape and going in for the kill are all apt metaphors. 

November 7 the New Moon is in Scorpio on the 15th degree

Venus will be back in Libra at this time where she is in her strength and in her love romance relationship beauty reigning Queen.

Things to do with Venus Retrograde in Libra

Change up your beauty regimen, get a make-over or redecorate your home, bedroom or office. Beautify your beloved or your best friend for fun and out of love.

This is one of the darkest of the dark moons this year.  Much scheming, dark cloaking, invisible powers that be are moving the chessplayers around behind the scenes. Big juju is happening under the covers in the covens the sirens are rising. The witches are stirring their cauldrons making potions, saying incantations. Jupiter is also at the 29th degree of Scorpio making for one big last Sexual surprise before it enters Sagittarius the Next day!

Old lovers return. Venus Retrograde is karmic retribution in love.

Old tape loops about who you never forgave, forgot, want to get revenge on, rise up from the depth of you psyche. Be careful of behaving unconsciously and having sex with vampires during this time. It’s best to abstain. Seriously spend 40 days being celibate while Venus is retrograde could do wonders for your psyche. 

Money issues may also be an issue on world financial markets and in your personal life.

As all Retrograde times this is not necessarily a bad thing at all. It is a natural rest and review time. DO all things that begin with Re. Return, redirect, repossess, reflect, regress, repurpose, remedy, remember, and most of all relax.

Venus ends her Retrograde in Libra and we sure do need those balancing scales of justice to weigh out.

George Clooney, Grand Cardinal Crosses can be good, by Tara Greene

Congratulations to actor George Clooney and his fiancée Amal Alamuddin who was named the #1 Barrister Hottie last year.

GEorge Clooney Amal Astrology Tara Greene

George always tops the world’s most handsome eligible bachelors list, was married once and admitted that “he wasn’t good at it.” He had always said he’d be a bachelor, so why has he  asked the beautiful and super intellectual dark-haired Lebanese trilingual Amal to be his wife after dating since October 2013?

Lets look at what’d up with Clooney’s planetary transit’s shall we?

And Belated HAPPY BIRTHDAY WISHES George May 6, 53 years young

George Clooney Astrology Tara Greene

GEORGE is of course a suave, steady earthy TAURUS born with the Sun at 15 degrees always considered to be the most powerful degree.

The Sun is in the natural 2nd house of resources, tools, sensuality, money-making, strength. George has Mercury conjunct the Sun making him a great communicator,charming, adaptable, Taurean slow and steady, a great voice, he oozes that Taurus sexiness. He can be vain, loves beauty, has great and expensive taste. Good thing he became so famous and wealthy.

Mr. Clooney’s chart is not so simple. He is a complex person.

His MOON is at 27 degrees+ of CAPRICORN in his 11th {Aquarian overlay} house.

That count 2 for earth signs. Moon is always Mom in everyone’s chart. The Moon symbolizes George’s relationship to his mother, his feelings, intuition, childhood, memories, security needs, receptivity to women. Moon in Capricorn doesn’t like to be emotional, it would rather be practical, hard-working, organizing, doing, making money, building an empire. Moon in the 11th house is Aquarian like. Someone who get emotional security from being part of a group community, being a rebel, who needs freedom to march to his own emotional heartbeat. His Mom and his may have a detached relationship. His career gives him strength and security. This could substitute for his own emotional insecurity.

George’s Ascendant is PISCES

at 11 degrees. The sign of the actor, the chameleon, the super sensitive, emotional spiritual, idealist. He is a dreamer, an illusionist, can be an addictive personality. A great visionary, artists, compassionate and charitable. Kind and considerate of others. 

VENUS in a man’s chart is his LOVE NATURE- Venus in ARIES

Venus indicates what he is attracted to in women, his values, how he wants to be loved. Venus is in the 1st house of EGO, I am, self-centered at 13+ degrees of  ARIES he is passionate, spontaneous, easily bored and restless, can be hot-tempered, impatient. Venus in Aries  makes him attracted to strong, independent, high energy, self-motivated, brash women. Venus rules his TAURUS SUN and MERCURY giving him extra vitality in Aries, although she is in Mars sign-which would explain the  rumours George was gay. Venus in Aries is always youthful, and he would be attracted to younger women. Ideally his Goddess is a fearless  AMAZON warrioress. Wasn’t he just dating a wrestler? Amal, his fiance would fall into this category as an independent self- made lawyer representing rebels like Julian Assange and the like. Venus makes no hard aspects in his natal chart. So he has no trouble attracting love from women, duh.

MARS his MALE SEXINESS in LEO

Well yes George would be a zero degrees Leo Mars type. Mars in LEO in the 5th house is the LION male pride, courage, star power, wealth, influence, shining brightly on the world’s stage. Creative, self-expressive, many love affairs, a childlike innocence all are part of this. He is very loyal to those he cares about, and has many good friends. He wears his heart on his sleeve. He is an old-fashioned man, a passionate lover. 

JUPITER in AQUARIUS, 6+ degrees in the 12th house

JUPITER is the great benefactor, in the 12 th house this is what I call the Bodhisattva sign. George has done a lot of spiritual work in a past life. Jupiter in Aquarius is a rebel, a loner, someone who educated the public, who dares to risk his neck for freedom. Jupiter is opposite George’s Mars amplifying that Mars in LEO sex appeal, leadership and charisma.

Jupiter in Aquarius, makes George psychic and able to see and know what is coming, He is a visionary, well read, curious to learn. He is open-minded about religion and would be attracted to people who are very different than himself. Jupiter squares his SUN and Neptune Retrograde in Scorpio in the 8th house. This amplifies his spiritual quest. Deep down George is very idealistic and romantic, Sun square Jupiter and opposite Neptune. He is looking for that soul mate, always has been.  Neptune Retrograde in Scorpio, in the 8th {Scorpio} house.  He came into this life with a psychic imprint of who she is. She will transform his life and he hers.

SATURN at 29 degrees CAPRICORN in the 11th HOUSE

Saturn rules CAPRICORN and it’s at the very last “critical” degree of Capricorn so good old SATURN the Lord of KARMA ,is at his most potent,powerful, senatorial, mature. Clooney is made to be a big league ruler of whatever he chooses to build. Like fine wine he will only improve with age and really step into his own in the next 9 years or so. He is a conservative, a hard worker, an earthy architect. He respects tradition even though he is also here to reinvent the old. He wants power and prestige that lasts. He wants to make his mark in history for making the world a better place and bringing group consciousness to a higher  place. His father had a very strong influence on him. He is the only person in Academy Award history to be nominated for Oscars in six different categories: Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay and Best Adapted Screenplay showing that 11 th house influence.

SATURN conjunct his MOON and Jupiter opposite MARS in LEO

This is traditionally a very difficult aspect. Saturn conjunct the Moon tends towards depression as  Saturn restricts the Moon’s expression. Saturn makes emotional contacts difficult until the person is mature enough to trust. The presence of Jupiter to Moon Saturn lightens this up and makes it way more positive. Saturn is George’s father and the Moon his mother, can be a close-knit traditional family which it was. Mars in Leo is very generous opposite Jupiter in Aquarius and less egotistical.

URANUS AT 21 DEGREES LEO IN THE 6TH HOUSE

Uranus is always rebellion, in the house of work. Uranus squares the SUN and Mercury. George is a brilliant thinker, organizer, works in his own way, implements new ideas which open people’s minds. Uranus in LEO is unusual, independent will power and heart. His passion is freedom for all.

PLUTO at 5 degrees VIRGO in the 6th house Retrograde

PLUTO is the soul, the shadow, the Unconscious. PLUTO conjunct his NORTH NODE at 3 degrees VIRGO. This is a very karmic signature. It means George came into this lifetime to truly manifest his soul’s work,  6th house, to perfect his soul. To be humble, to serve, to write, analyze, clean up. 

SOUTH NODE at 3 degrees PISCES in the 12th house

George’s Pisces SOUTH NODE indicates that his past life was very spiritual, that he had given up all worldly possessions, that he may have been a hermit, a spiritual seeker, guru, or holy man. George is very sensitive, psychic empathic and compassionate. He has a reclusive side to him.

CHIRON at 6 degrees PISCES, opposite PLUTO conjunct SOUTH NODE

Again this is a very very spiritual mark. George is a wounded healer. In Pisces, he can heal through his creativity, through Film- his Pisces chosen medium. He heals those he touches as a chameleon on very subtle levels. George is tuned into the collective consciousness he is probably a great dreamer. He came to this world awake, remembering his mission. 

I left out the asteroids in this chart to simplify things.

GEORGE has LILITH at 10 degrees LEO opposite Jupiter in his 6th house, square to his NEPTUNE

He is seeking that totally independent strong woman who lies below no man and is free unto herself. Someone who is smart, in service, who he can have an intellectual relationship with {6th house virgo influence}.

But I included the Trans Neptunian object CUPIDO.

CUPIDO is as the name suggests. At 8 degree LIBRA in the house of marriage, relationships, fairness, the law, the go-between,opposite his natal Venus in Aries and trined by Jupiter in Aquarius.

SO WHY did he get engaged now?

on April 26 2014 when the news was announced what was happening?

THE GRAND CARDINAL CROSS of course.

URANUS is EXACTLY on George’s VENUS in ARIES- expect the unexpected in love.

JUPITER in CANCER in George’s 5th house of LOVE AFFAIRS- expanding family, home, emotions.

MARS RETROGRADE IN LIBRA in George’s 7th house of marriage-  very close to George’s CUPIDO

PLUTO in CAPRICORN is in his 11th house of change, wishes hopes and dreams.

GRAND CARDINAL CROSSES don’t have to be all bad. The sudden change can be a very good thing.

NEPTUNE has been sitting on George’s SOUTH NODE since he first met Amal

This is a past life connection. I am sure George KNEW it right away but played mum. Neptune is also opposite George’s Pluto in Virgo, soul mate territory and conjunct to his CHIRON. Amal is connected to this point I am sure of it. 

THE TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE OF APRIL 14 at 25 degrees LIBRA 

was in his 7th house of marriage and squaring his natal MOON, Saturn, and square his MARS, that definitely indicates a serious commitment as a marriage.

THE SOLAR ECLIPSE OF APRIL 28/29 at 8 degrees TAURUS

is conjunct to his SUN in TAURUS – shift in identity and opposite his natal NEPTUNE in Scorpio in the 8th and square to his JUPITER in Aquarius in the 12th. I think George  didn’t know what hit him all of a sudden. But it sure feels good.

I only know that Amal is 36 now. So she was born in 1978. There is no evidence of her actual birth date. 

OUTER PLANETS – URANUS was  between 12- 15 degrees SCORPIO that year. Saturn just crossed the latter degrees.

NEPTUNE at 16-18 degrees SAGITTARIUS. -Idealistic International lawyers.

PLUTO at 16-19 degrees LIBRA- the earlier degrees would be in the GRAND CARDINAL CROSS as well.

Saturn was at zero- 13 degrees VIRGO- NEPTUNE is opposite those early degrees.

JUPITER 29 degrees GEMINI- 17 degrees LEO- AMAL will have her most fertile JUPITER return this year.

Rumour is that they will wed in the Fall.  Jupiter enters LEO in late July..

CHILDREN?

MR. Clooney will be in full fertile fatherly mode as Jupiter hits his MArs in LEO and moves opposite his Jupiter and squares his Sun. I am sure Amal would love to start a family soon. We could be reading pregnancy stories within 6 months. 

Mr. Clooney is a #19  personality THE SUN, #10 extra hidden teacher- the wheel of FORTUNE, Soul number 1 -the MAGICIAN.

WISH THEM ALL THE BEST.

November Astrology,Venus in Capricorn from Tara Greene

November Astrology Forecast

Starting out with a big Bang with the 4th EXACT square between URANUS and PLUTO at 9 degrees + Aries/ Capcriocn.

That little event keeps rockin and reverberating until the next exact square April 21, 2014.

MERCURY  CONJUNCTS THE SUN moving Retrograde November 1st also at 9 degrees SCORPIO.

These two events underscore each other as the Consciousness value of SUN + MERCURY RETRO in SCORPIO is the DARK night of the SOUL aspect  the Night Sea journey,the twilight zone, void, Liminal LIMBO space. This is territory ruled by Pluto and Mars. The LIGHT of consciousness is in  Quincunx to Uranus and sextile to Pluto. The old new dichotomies still have some kinks and snags to work out.

WE NEED to think in ways we haven never even imagined before. Imagine that.

The SCORPIO SOLAR ECLIPSE NOV 3 is hybrid. Indicating literally, a new type of masculine solar consciousness and feminine lunar consciousness.

November 4th is an easy lite aspect day. Moon enters Sagittarius 12:14 pm PST

Moon squares Neptune in Pisces- stay in imaginative mode.

NOVEMBER 5 VENUS ENTERS CAPRICORN and stays there until March 5/6  of 2014.

LAdy of Shallott by Waterhouse Venus in CApricorn

The Lady of Shalott by John William Waterhouse 1888 

Venus in Capricorn changes the love map to mature, serious, committed, all business, conservative, unemotional and into long-term goals.

Venus in Capricorn love is “Just the facts ma’am.”  Eat Lotsa FETTA CHEESE while Venus is in GOAT territory! It’s good for you.

LOVE is SERIOUS BUSINESS, and real during these next four months.No airy fairy or intense emotional stuff now.

Also its KARMIC LOVE, as Capricorn is ruled by SATURN.

“You don’t have to turn on the red light” with Venus in Capricorn. Florescent will do.

Venus in Capricorn gifts are Kitchen Aid blenders, business accoutrements, cotton panties, low heeled shoes.

Venus is the EMPRESS in the Tarot. Capricorn is THE DEVIL {SATURN} in the Tarot Trumps. 

Yes she’s a Devil in disguise with a blue dress on. The Devil wears Prada would be a modern equivalent. -see link below

VENUS rules money, the economy, your earnings and spendings, self-worth, values, luxury. Capricorn is conservative, blue chip, Old boys $.

Yes commitments, marriage, signing on the dotted line must be for love and long term.Whether for biz or pleasure.

Saturn ruled Venus of the goatfish will toil willingly, many late after hours to achieve her love or job goals.

Check out where CAPRICORN is in your natal chart. That’s where the Love light will be shining.

My husband has Venus in Capricorn {our daughter does too}. He is very responsible. V in C people show love by taking care of all the practical details for you, they are totally reliable.  They will get to their goals as they have infinite patience. Usually they are very career oriented and make lots of money because status counts. Venus in Capricorn symbolizes receiving love for the job you love to do and how you shine brightest in the world through your career.

ARE YOU? DO YOU? YOU must re-evaluate your success story, from that standpoint of

What you do for a living to what you do for a loving.

All earth signs are blessed during these times. Especially Venus ruled TAURUS.

LIBRA ruled Venusians will find these times challenging as they are being prodded by the square to be more real.

Water signs benefit from sextiles.

ARIES and CANCER get the square and opposition. Many choices to make in Love, investments and the job.

VENUS GOES RETROGRADE on WINTER SOLSTICE- February 1st- Groundhog Day 

at 28 degrees 59 minutes of CAPRICORN almost at that last critical degree which by the way is very near to where the U.S. Natal Pluto is. So heads up on the economy. VERY POWERFUL times. Many long term relationships will end. I’ll write more about that later.

SUN conjuncts SATURN November 6- March 6/7 @ 14 degrees 14 SCORPIO

a serious heavy karmic day to shine the light into the deep dark hole

JUPITER goes RETROGRADE November 6/7 March 6/7 @ 10 degrees CANCER

Review your expansion plans, this is a crucial thing to do. Women’s rights, schools, food, housing will all go rebounding back. 

VENUS Sextiles NEPTUNE November 7

Very romantic a great day to create and love and dream.

Mercury sextiles Venus November 8 @ 3 degrees Scorpio/Capricorn

Let’s talk about LOVE, a raise, a new aquisition, a new job.

NOVEMBER 9 

Mars sextiles Saturn @ 14 degrees VIRGO/SCORPIO

clean up your act big time. A good practical aspect to get a lot done.

Mercury Trines Neptune  @ 3 degrees Scorpio/Pisces 

write out big wish lists, Soul wish lists Meditate on this one.

Moon Squares SUN @ 18 degrees Scorpio /Aquarius 

1/2 way to next Full Moon

NOVEMBER 10

MERCURY TURNS DIRECT @ 2 degrees 29 mins Scorpio 

It’ll take until November 27 for Mercury to surpass the Retrograde degree  of 18 degrees Scorpio 23 minutes.

That’s right on my Ascendant and a day before my birthday.
