Sexual abuse #MeToo healing, Saturn Vesta conjunction

Saturn and Vesta’s exact conjunction September 27th @2 degrees Capricorn

Couldn’t be more timely with former comedian and actor Bill Cosby’s conviction for sexual assault Sept. 25. Saturn is Karma. Vesta symbolizes woman’s sacred sexual energy. This is a prime time to heal. #MeToo yes I have been raped. 

Vesta’s {Hestia in Greek} function as High Priestess is to focus on and tend to your sacred inner spirit-flame, your sexual passion and to keep it safe, strong and burning bright. Remember also that we are in a Universal #2 Year the Symbol of the High Priestess in the Tarot. 

The Vestal Virgins meant that these women were whole and complete and belonged to no man. They were sworn to celibacy and to focus their sexual energy and use it directly for spiritual connection. The Priestesses were able to recirculate their sacred menstrual blood and were able to conceive parthenogenically as Mary did with Jesus.

I believe and remember that as a Vestal Virgin these women served as Priestesses of the Goddess before the Patriarchal meaning of Virgin as abstaining from sex. These Priestesses were disciplined { Saturn’s rulership}  dedicated and devoted to their own purification of sexual energy enabled them, after years of focused work as Yogini’s to be so pure that they could perform magical healing feats by directing that sexual energy. 

Saturn rules discipline

It’s a good time to create goals of all kinds and to make a business plan and to create a disciplined daily regimen for yourself. Invest your energy in creating concrete goals on all physical levels- get your body in shape, your business tools, or website, and take care of financial planning.  Saturn rules maturity and ageing, think about where you want to be and the quality of life you want to have as you age. Remember your ancestors. Saturn governs reality. It’s time for a reality check to take stock of where you are at in your life in reality right now and to take responsibility for your karma.

This is a karmic reminder to reassess your career path. What is your passion and essence? Take stock of what you invest your time into with your physical body on all levels-what you eat, exercise, body care, distractions, lovers. What do you spend your time focussing on? Ask your spirit what it desires on the mental, emotional and spiritual levels.

Sexual healing form abuse

Vesta is the Goddess who guards the Sacred Flame, the spiritual focus and sacred kundalini Tantric sexual force of nature/ spirit. There is major karmic collective healing from sexual abuse which needs to be burned off now. Thousands of years of Patriarchal permission to rape and abuse women needs to be healed.  Start a daily or weekly practice to tend your own sacred flame. This can be creating an altar, a meditation time, or a practice where spirit, sexuality and your physical body join in unison.

Vesta rules Tantric healing sexuality energy. You can access this energy through sacred breathwork for yourself or with a partner. I’m putting together an article you can access on how to do this.

Saturn and Vesta remain in conjunction within 9 degrees until October 24th.

This gives us a whole month to really focus on a discipline of listening to our bones. Listening to our ancestors, listening to our body. The body never lies. Let your body soul and spirit guide you into making whatever major long term- Saturn is only in his home sign of Capricorn once every 28-29 years.

Then make the physical moves and changes to align with your spiritual essence, your kundalini flame first so that you can burn brightly once again.

Check out where your natal VESTA is in your birth chart to understand what fuels your sacred flame. 

I will put together a webinar next week. Stay tuned.

Electrifying love Venus opposite Uranus

Sept. 12 Venus in Scorpio opposes Uranus in Taurus 

Venus in Taurus trine Mars Tara Greene

Venus rules women, your love life, your values, money, the divine feminine and luxury. Venus in Scorpio rules sex, money,  power, secrets, death, rebirth, transformation, finance, taxes, other people’s money, inheritance, the sacred other. 

Uranus rules liberation, individuality, invention, pioneering, organizations, management, higher consciousness, detachment, science, radicalism, collective thinking.

The opposition to Uranus creates an electric spark, a lightning bolt, a chaotic wave of energy, unexpected changes, the urge for freedom, liberation, revolution, invention. Uranus rules Kundalini energy. You can have amazing orgasmic cosmic experiences under his electrical transit. It would be good to ground yourself in nature.

Uranus in Taurus rules rock solid values, money, real estate, sensual things, the body.

Expect crazy turns and twists in your love life. This may feel like you’ve been hit with a lightning bolt through your heart, It’s scintillating, exciting, freeing, liberating. For Taurus peeps and those with planets in Taurus who like to take it slow- you may feel like you are having heart palpitations or even a heart attack. Blood pressure may be up. 

check out where 2 degrees SCORPIO and 2 degrees Taurus is in your natal chart to find out how this energy hits you personally.

Hurricane Florence can also be attributed to these energies

Hurricanes are water based and Uranus is wild crazy wind energy. Wishing you all safety in the Hurricane’s path.

VENUS does not make any major aspects to planets until Sept. 27 when moon opposes her.

Venus turns RETROGRADE on October 5 at 3 degrees Scorpio 

Venus will enter her shadow phase now and we are headed to the next Star Point in her 8 year cycle. Venus is Squaring the Lunar Nodes and Mars in Aquarius. Venus’ brightest appearance as the beautiful evening wishing star tarot card #17 the Star, to peak on Sept 25th. Venus will then quickly disappear into the Sun by Oct 22.

Women will be on the rampage for freedom, to be their own person, to be individuals, free, belonging to no man or ideal. 

The financial markets will experience radical shifts, be careful with investments.

“I’ve got chills.
They’re multiplying.
And I’m losing control.
‘Cause the power
You’re supplying,
Is electrifying.”- “You’re the one that I Want’ from Grease is a great description of this energy.

There is so much going on. expect to feel confused about what you want. The nodal square asks us to choose from our hearts.

Vesta, Astrology, Edgar Maxence, Tara Greene

Vesta, by Edgar Maxence

VESTA, is an ancient Goddess, the keeper of the sacred flame. She is more popularly known for being associated with the VESTAL Virgins, which is a patriarchal whitewash of the original Vestal Sacred Tantric Priestesses. Vesta symbolizes the knowledge keeper of sacred sexual KUNDALINI energy, that sacred snake energy at the base of our spines, illumination consciousness. Vesta is the knowledge bearer and the keeper of that precious flame, and the focus to keep the eternal flame burning.  She is like Irish Goddess Brigid or Birgita. She is what we INVEST ourselves in. Not just money and tangible things. We are invested in our stories our personalities, our troubles, our goals, our partners, children, jobs, and roles.  

What are you invested in? What is your consciousness invested in? 

VESTA is also in quincunx to SATURN 

This is a complex pattern. We may find it difficult to remember that past life memory or current truth we told. Stay with the feelings. 

A hot fast Retro Fire Trine, a blowback fiery aspect.

Suddenly from out of nowhere, like an explosion, Kaboom, a cold hard fact, and some very solid concrete thinking may appear like an EPIPHANY to clarify an old vow or words you spoke many years ago. Pay attention to this closely. A karmic memory is knocking on the doors of your consciousness and the collective’s to be let in. 

Welcome it as a strange familiar or as a familiar stranger.  

I experienced this so powerfully earlier this evening. These messages just come in, wham and shift my total consciousness. This is important. ll vows are very sacred and important and they echo through time. Don’t waste time feeling bad about what you didn’t do. Take up your charge now. Follow up on what you said you would do. All vows are very sacred and important and they echo through time. It doesn’t matter when or what’s happened in the meantime. The initial charge is still present. Go back to ground zero when the knowledge

Don’t waste time feeling bad about what you didn’t do. Take up your charge now. Follow up on what you said you would do. It doesn’t matter when or what’s happened in the meantime. The initial charge is still present. Go back to ground zero when the knowledge from the truth of your soul came through. 

I made a vow in 1992 during a weekend all women’s shamanic retreat with Oriah Mountain Dreamer at a retreat center in Caledon, that I would work with women teaching them about the beauty and power of their Periods. I had a very powerful experience while on my period and leaning on a tree that was a huge epiphany for me. This was after a weekend of intense ceremony. I announced that vow at the end of the weekend in front of about 30 women.  I have done some work around this through workshops, writing and telling women about this but I am feeling the need to write a book and to do more. Perhaps an e-book as I am currently juggling about 3 books to be finished. 

Do you have something similar? 

ARIES Moon opposes Jovial JUPITER  at night

You’ll be feeling pumped, optimistic, like the world’s your playground. Use the excess energy to begin to work on that vow. If it isn’t coming through clearly, ask your Higher Guardian Angels to help you.

Gemini LOVERS Primer,astrology by Tara Greene

May 20 2014 Sun enters Gemini the sign of the naturally bi polar TWINS

 known as a “FUN da MENTAL”  sign. I made that up years ago.

Its a  fast monthly mind games romp while, changing partners, doe see doe-ing, and smiling with charming flirtyness.

GEMINI is Ruled by that fancy fleet- footed messenger  of the Gods – MERCURY, also the planet.

MERCURY is  consciousness, intelligence, analysis, communications. The SOuRCE in some senses.

GEMINI has what is called PEUR mentality and actions, for the more psychologically minded. There may be much mental Ado about not much during  Gemini times. Gemini is a light-headed air sign, dare we say Air head?

But ya gotta love ’em, They  move too fast for you to pin them down. Yes social butterflies those Gemini’s are.. NEVER EVER TRY TO PIN THEM DOWN. Their charm will win you over, they can sell refrigerators to Inuit folks. They shine in public speaking, disseminating info.

GEMINI men take for ever, if they ever do settle down. They naturally wander. They need some extra grounding planets or the MOON in CANCER or strong  Taurus energy to make them stable. If they don’t have earth strong in their charts FORGET IT unless you like a wandering lover. 

GEMINI’s get easily bored, they forget anniversaries,they need something to talk about, anything to  keep their jaws and minds going. They do jump from angel to devil- avoiding anything that would pin them down to taking a single stand.

Do you find that really fascinating?

Their main thrust is to gather information, move like the wind, quick change artists,curious,wiry, young, forever young.

DO YOU HAVE GEMINI SUN MOON VENUS OR MARS?

IF SO it is very difficult for you to be in a monogamous relationship. Your nature is to have your cake and eat  it too. You will have to work hard to come to terms with your roving childlike qualities. 

Mercury/Hermes Gemini's planet ruler

used by FTD florist as their symbol

MERCURY rules two signs – GEMINI a masculine Air element sign and VIRGO a feminine earth sign element.

VIRGO’s might be heard to be coughing and choking on that bit of info. But yes its true.

GEMINI is the eternal child whose curiosity to mentally explore every nook and cranny and lives in Never Never land like PETER PAN. Rarely ever show up on time.

VIRGO gathers, organizes, perfects, focuses, remembers, all the scattered details in a quite an OCD manner. If you seek intellect, humility, servers, obsessively organized workaholics, they love to read and have great often photographic memories. VIRGO is the polar opposite of GEMINI in so many ways. Yes they are very focussed on work, diligent,worry worts, often work in the health field, terribly disciplined in diet, exercise, being always punctual to GEMINI’s always late. 

May 21 MOON enters PISCES

SUN squares MOON in the wee hours

and MERCURY RULES the Sun and all the lunar days till Friday May 23 when Moon enters ARIES @ 9:01 am

MERCURY is the big KAHUNA for the next few days and there is a GEMINI NEW MOON MAY 28 @ 7 degrees at 11:40 am PDT/2:40 pm EDT

                                                                                                      GEMINI is associated with a surprising TAROT SYMBOL

Gemini Tarot ART

Gemini and Sagittarius opposites

THE LOVERS

This association killed me when I first learned the TArot. I already had learned Astrology so to have the LOVERS ASSOCIATED WITH GEMINI blew my mind.  Of course all relationships are about duality, choices, male and female, polar opposites. GEMINI is the POLE Star too.

also shown is  the opposite sign of GEMINI which is  SAGITTARIUS which is associated with ALCHEMY again back to HERMES/MERCURY.

The other card which is associated with the LOVERS #6 is THE DEVIL # 15 which also reduces to #6.

Its all about sacred geometry. The Lovers is the choice to love our dual nature our sexual twin. 

The DEVIL is about fear and separation.

Famed psychologist CARL JUNG said there are only two emotions LOVE AND FEAR.

WHICH WILL YOU CHOOSE?

LOVE or FEAR?

 

 

MERCURY, found  in thermometers. whose actions, hard to pin it down, describes Gemini’s energies perfectly…Quicksilver is also a deadly toxic poison but  can also be used to heal in Homeopath.  Now its in all those energy saving light bulbs and very dangerous.

Mercury’s symbol is the caduceus. Not just an FTD Florist symbol, every MD in the world uses the caduceus to signify the healing profession of MEDICINE. The caduceus was originally employed by Chiron and Asclepius as snakes were used to help heal people in Ancient Greece  Snakes were used in the Oracles at Delphi. Considered to be magical animals of the Goddess since always,two snakes entwined around the central staff or spine is KUNDALINI sexual energy.  The caduceus is an ancient symbol of DNA symbolizes the twin poles of consciousness, balance and the combining of opposites as in ALCHEMY to produce something entirely new. This is a deep psychological image.

Mercury in the TAROT  is  the # 1 symbol THE MAGUS MAGE OR MAGICIAN

MERCURY /Hermes is also the TRICKSTER

famous as COYOTE in Native American legends when your mind plays tricks on you…quess who is to blame?

HERMES is  a hermaphrodite, His name means HERMES & APHRODITE Mercury is both male HERMES and a female VENUS/APHRODITE in one. Yes all Gemini’s have this strong energy. Where is Gemini in your natal chart?

We see the hermaphrodite image in Kurt Hummel from GLEE-

Glee's Mercury Hermes Messenger

 check out artist NAPOLEON BROUSSEAU’s Hermaphrodite transgender art http://www.flickr.com/photos/57408189@N06/6911921733/sizes/m/in/photostream/

May 20 in 2012 there was an Annular Solar eclipse at Zero degrees of Gemini- it was spectacular. The Sun’s entry into Gemini now lights up the events from that time.
