Attaining enlightenment, Mars at last degree of the Zodiac

The warrior has reached the end of his journey. His weapons fallen, his armor broken, useless to protect him anymore. His trophies and medals tarnished and inconsequential. All of his worldly belongings destroyed and worth nothing. All of his former loved ones abandoned him. His children and grandchildren want nothing to do with him, they have all renounced him. All his great, grand ideas of conquering, of controlling, oh having, of living, of dominating, of plundering, of avoiding death, old age and taxes, of being the King are seen for what they are. Illusions and delusions. The warrior realizes he is alone and frightened. He realizes that everything which he fought so hard for is absolutely meaningless and wrong. 

The warrior realizes he is alone, weak and he is frightened.  He realizes that he is a failure, not a hero at all. He has failed to love others, he has failed to do good. He has failed to be compassionate or kind. He has only thought of himself. Now his ego is finally destroyed, this life review makes him realize, at this last breath in his feeble male body that he has totally wasted his precious time on earth. He realizes he has created mountains of harm and bad karma. He has debts which will take millennium’s to repay and to rebalance. The warrior weeps on his death bed alone. He weeps for his wife and children, for his parents, brothers and sister, his friends and neighbors, colleagues and for every person he ever met. He weeps for himself, now seen as pathetic, weak, scared, a little boy who never really grew up to be a human being, a real man. He has been disconnected from his true self, and his heart, his entire life. It’s at this very moment, that a miracle can occur.

 MARS is at the 29th critical degree of PISCES  Jan 26-27

While Mars has been in the great ocean of PISCES we’ve been treading water unconsciously. The exhaustion, grief and repressed anger so many of us have been feeling has a great deal to do with this. It will be a relief to be freed from this 12th house Prison, soon.

This is also the critical degree of attaining Buddahood or enlightenment.

The last degree of the Zodiac is a very very spiritual degree. It is said that the aim for all souls is to reach the last degree of the Zodiac through experiencing many, many lifetimes and to earn dharma and be released.  Try to connect with this energy today. Mars is the driving force, this is a very powerful symbol. 

Think of Buddha who has been sitting under the Bodhi tree for so long,

Buddha bodhi tree,Tara Greene

immovable, fighting off all the demons, the seductresses, the illusions, and delusions The Buddha sees and experiences all of his past lives, he witnesses everything that has happened in all time and space, until he sees through the illusion of it all. His mind is free of his ego, it expands, he is free from all emotional cravings, and aversions, and sees that everything is always changing, is in relationship and as he reached enlightenment or clear mind, he touches the earth and states that he has attained enlightenment and the earth is his witness. He looks up and see Venus as the Morning Star and heart is filled with love. He then is compelled through compassion to help assist others to attain enlightenment too.

Become one with this energy. It exists in all time, for all eternity. Breathe it in. Become the buddha. 

Use Mars at this last degree, in these very trying times to be a BODHISATTVA

A bodhisattva is a male or female human being who has already attained enlightenment but as they are consciously leaving the earthly existence behind, this incarnation on the meat wheel of Saturn/time they look back at the earth. Out of compassion for all the suffering and ignorant beings, they give up their own liberation and come back to teach enlightenment to help all beings reach enlightenment.

Here is the famous Bodhisattva vow:

“Just as all the previous Sugatas, the Buddhas
Generated the mind of enlightenment
And accomplished all the stages
Of the Bodhisattva training,
So will I too, for the sake of all beings,
Generate the mind of enlightenment
And accomplish all the stages
Of the Bodhisattva training.”

In Mahayana Buddhism, the bodhisattva vows to work for the relief and liberation {nirvana}of all sentient- beings as long as samsara or cyclical rebirth exists.

With Venus so nearby to Mars allow her compassion and unconditional love to help the warrior King transform himself from a tyrant into a Knight who serves to respect as an equal and to support and honor the Divine Feminine. His actual role.

The Accolade by Edmund Leighton 1901

The famous Chinese Bodhisattva Kwan Yin is the Goddess to call upon here. I am a priestess dedicated to her service.

Mars in Pisces is also like the famous story of the Fisher King. It is part of the Tales of King Arthur and the Holy Grail. The wounded king has a serious sexual wound, his kingdom which he symbolizes is a total wasteland. The King can only be healed and the wasteland restored to life again after the innocent Parsival, screws up a few times, and then finally utters the magic words to the King. ” What ails thee?”  This is the voice of Venus in Pisces speaking. If we have compassion for the wounded masculine, he can be healed. 

Also see the great 1991 movie The Fisher King starring Robin Williams, Jeff Bridges and directed by Terry Gilliam.

If we all do this our single-mindedness may affect the Wounded Patriarchy on the rampage these days. We must all work to heal our own ego’s and wounds.

Happy Quan yin day, blessings of compassion

Prelude. The post- Total Lunar eclipse energy had me feeling  down, with so much dark energy coming up. Yet I was also feeling my angel and spirit guides presence too. I felt like I was living with both feelings at the same time in parallel universes. A friend of mine,who does very high level spiritual work called me yesterday saying she was feeling overwhelmed and down and crying. I said I was feeling it too. I told her that it is very Libran to feel that polarity, the whole point is to feel it all and to hold the tension of the opposites. That is what Carl Jung said the great work is.  We need to make both feelings transparent not try to pretend it is all light.

The Moon is also in Scorpio which also brings up deep deep emotions. So it feels totally synchronous that…

 April 7 Billions of people are celebrating the birthday of  the Goddess of Mercy and Compassion Quan Yin/ Kwan Yin today. She is the Divine Mother Goddess and the most worshipped Goddess in the world who we need to call upon to end suffering . She is a Goddess of Love and Light. 

Quan Yin Buddhism Tara Greene

All Buddhists,  love and pray to Quan Yin. Chinese Taoists consider her an Immortal. Her name means “observing the Sounds of the world.” She is worshipped through Eastern Asia under different names. 

She is known as a Bodhisattva.  This is a Buddha, an enlightened being who has given up their own liberation from the wheel of karma and who volunteers to come back into the world to help alleviate the suffering of all sentient beings until everyone is liberated. It’s a very serious vow to make.  As White Tara in Tibetan Buddhism, she was the first Buddha to take a Female form. 

She is also shown as a male aspect inTibet.”Avalokiteshvara” which means “the lord who looks upon the world with compassion”.

In China she is shown as a beautiful woman in white, often shown riding a dragon, or a dolphin.  She holds a willow branch, which was used to heal people’s illness and to bring fulfillment of their wishes. This can indicate dowsing with willow and a magic wand? Witches used willow.  She also holds a vase with water and a lotus flower.  Water is the dew of compassion and it has the qualities of purification. She is also revered by vegetarians. 

Sometimes shown with eleven heads and thousands of eyes on the palms of each hand, a symbol of seeing all the suffering of sentient beings and having thousands of arms to help them.

There is a sacred place to worship Kuan Yin, Putuo Mountain in China. It is an island near Ningpo in Zhejiang Province. She has made miraculous appearances in this place. 

I have prayed to in her  in her aspect as White Tara and she has come to me in meditations and is a spirit guide for me. She is like Mother Mary, White Bufallo Woman to Native Americans or even as the same emanation as Jesus. She would be considered like the Shekinah in Judaism. 

Anyone can pray to Kwan Yin, She forgives and comforts us as a Mother. She teaches us to forgive ourselves, and to love ourselves. She is said to appear to anyone who calls upon her. 

I didn’t realize that April 7 was considered Kwan Yin’s birthday. My mother,  may she rest in peace was born on this day. I am crying because I really gave her a hard time when I was a kid. When she died it was on a Holy Day and we were told that only very auspicious spiritual people die or are born on these days,and I didn’t know that either until it happened.

If you have guilt around your mother, for not respecting or dishonoring her, or the Feminine in any way shape or form, use this day to shed tears of purification for yourself and to ask for forgiveness through Kwan Yin and to have compassion with yourself.

Her mantra is OHM MANI PADME HUM – which means, Hail to the jewel in the lotus.

Usually a pure crystal mala or prayer beads are used to repeat the Buddhist mantra 108 times to Kwan Yin. You can use a clear quartz crystal and send your prayers into the crystal, Meditate on Kwan Yin. 

Anyone can be like a Bodhistavva, like Kwan Yin. The best thing to do today is to “Be the Goddess you want to see in the world.” Tm. With your kindness and compassion you can bring peace and tranquility into the world.  Listen to Lisa Thiel’s beautiful song about Kwan Yin, which I have listened to  for almost 30 years now. 

Kwan YIN lyrics 1985 by Susan Haist

Kwan Yin, Kwan Yin, Adi Shakti, too, White Buffalo Woman of the West Your Spirit dwells within our realms To teach and inspire us Goddess of grace, goddess of strength Keeper of the creative force Goddess of light, goddess of love I long to be one with you Teach me to be a goddess, too I long to be one with you Teach me to be a goddess, too.

Scorpio Solar Eclipse Descent of Love Astrology

The Second Solar Eclipse of the year on October 23 is at Zero degrees of Scorpio @ 2:56 pm PDT/ 5:56 pm EDT/9:56 pm GMT is a partial one. 

Nevertheless it will be INTENSE, OBSESSIVE, LOVE vs. POWER, SEX, CONTROL ISSUES DYING

It’s very special, as the Planet/Goddess Venus is conjunct to the Sun and the Moon, THE GODDESS Venus is our Cosmic guide, way shower initiatrix and hostess as the world descends with Her into the Underworld for the death of the ego to be rebirthed as a purified Love sourced identity as Quan YIN, Avalokitishvara The Goddess or the Feminine form of compassion.

I’m calling this Eclipse a QUANTUM YIN transformation

Quan Yin Solar eclipse Tara Greene

The DIVINE FEMININE exists in all beings hearts whether in form as a man or a woman. 

Venus was embodied as the original Sumerian Goddess Innana who was worshipped over 5,000 years ago in Babylon where present day Baghdad is and the ancient city of  Uruk. Inanna’s archetypal mythic descent into the Underworld is the story of Venus’ 5 fold cycle from an Evening star to a Dawn Star. Inanna supposedly went to the land of the dead to mourn for her sister Erechkigal’s husband Nergal who was the God of Plagues. I thought this was an  interesting detail in relation to the current EBOLA virus scares.

Inanna goes through 7 stages or levels of initiation.  As she descends she needs to drop another item of power, until she is naked, stripped of her ego. Inanna is sentenced to  die by the spirits of the underworld. She is turned in to a rotting corpse and hung on a nail. But she had sent helpers to come to her aid beforehand. Her life is bargained for and Inanna is the only being who rises from the dead reborn. She sends her consort Damuzzi as her replacement to the Underworld, as he has abused the power which she gave him.

We are all being initiated like INANNA into the Underworld now. No matter how black, dark, fearsome, plague filled, it seems. We must be regal, queenly, Goddess-like and hold our heads high. Inanna/Venus is a clever warrior Goddess. with escape methods in place. We too must have escape plans, friends, supporters and Plan B ready to go.

You must be ready to leave all of your ego attachments to your stuff behind. Your title, trophies, cars, credit cards, education, salary, addictions, all your material things and your stories which  identity you behind to truly die and be reborn. Solar Eclipses always carried fated deaths of famous leaders historically.

Are you ready to rock and roll? 

Here’s a short checklist of aspects – DO NOTE if you have planets, angels etc. conjunct to, opposing or squaring these points where you will be impacted and how by the houses..

1.CARDINAL CROSSES -Uranus  and Pluto ongoing squares + Mercury Retrograde conjunct the North Node at 17-19 degrees Libra in the mix

2. SCORPIO STELLIUM

Four planets in Scorpio SUN MOON VENUS = Asteroid ATHENA all with in one degree of each other + SATURN + dwarf planet CERES

3. ZERO degrees of any sign heralds new BEGINNINGS, in SCORPIO new powerful emotional soul transformations deaths and rebirths. All fixed signs.

4. MARS- where the action is, is on the Galactic Center at 28 degrees Sagittarius

5. Lilith at 26 degrees of Leo trines Mars and the Galactic Center- deep dark Feminine shadows courage heart and leadership

5. Jupiter at 19 degrees Leo is trining Uranus and the South Node- big changes, letting go of past

6. SUN MOON VENUS Trine Neptune in Pisces- new spiritual awakenings

7. Asteroids Juno @ 6 degrees of Leo is square to Asteroid Vesta @ 8 degrees Sagittarius in square to Neptune in Pisces which is quincunx to JUNO in LEO.

PARTIAL SCORPIO SOLAR ECLIPSE

Scorpio is the 8th sign, 8 is INFINITY when turned horizontally. We are dealing with the Great Mysteries of sex, money power, life death and rebirth in Scorpio.

We are tapping into a deeper awareness of our unconscious motivations on  more profound emotional levels on this eclipse. Solar eclipses affect the daylight masculine consciousness. The Sun’s light is temporarily dimmed by the Moon passing in front of it, the FEMININE  which is the instincts, unconscious feeling tone of the people disrupts the  day worlds “everything is perfectly normal” routine..

Scorpio is the DEATH CARD #13 in the TAROT

which is THE Great Mystery. whose name and meaning is closest to God, the Void, the Goddess, all that is and is NOT, Nothingness.

SEX

the primal life force. What happens when SEX is eclipsed by LOVE? When sex as violence/Rape is no longer possible?

IN ORDER TO BE REBORN SOMETHING MUST DIE.  THAT IS OBVIOUS,

in any newness- be it a relationship, becoming a mother, getting married, the old self as single, must die for the new coupling to be born.

WHAT do you need to let go of  within you, your own shadow and  unconscious now so that you may ascend into new awareness of an egoless state?

THE ECLIPSE will be most visible from northern California right across the Southern United states,Northern Mexico across to Florida and east to Montreal Canada and North eastern Russia. The areas where the eclipses is most visible is where the strongest effects are.It will be less visible right across North America except for the east coast of the U.S.and Canada.

eclipse map Tara Greene astrology

The purple and red are visibility path

Scorpio Issues SEX MONEY POWER OVER, SECRETS, TAXES

A Solar Eclipse brings to light the deep darkest secrets. Many relationships will break up under the Scorpio eclipse. Things will feel EVEN MORE INTENSE than they already do.

MARS is the ancient planetary ruler of Scorpio. Mars rules the first decan of Scorpio as well so more powerful. Mar is sitting up in the 9th house on the Galactic Center- beam me in Scotty. This is a great opportunity to ask  direct questions with the Big Brain- the Void itself.

VENUS is less than 20 minutes separated from the SUN and MOON in combustion. This is like being a willing sacrifice, letting the old father/ mother scripts, the memories and attachments be totally  burned away. All the old vestiges of the self are destroyed and consumed by both the Sun, the Father and the Moon the mother leaving one as vulnerable and new as a newborn babe.

Mercury RETROGRADE conjunct the North Node 

Retrograde Mercury has just conjunct the Sun  October 16, Mercury has been enthroned. The Retrograde question is: Are we operating in a balanced conscious way? We need to be detached in the midst of tumultuous emotions. This is a good thing.We aren’t ready to move forward until Mercury is out of the retrograde shadow November 10.

Use this super powerful Scorpio solar eclipse to tally transform every aspect of your life.

Scorpio is SOUL Lessons, soul work, that is what each of us came to earth to work on.

Die to be reborn and the Love of the Goddess will guide your heart.

10 Super Psychic Pisces Full Moon tips by Tara Greene

This Super Full Moon in Pisces takes us down deep into the Original Waters, the oceans of the Unconscious where we can become our ancestors again and swim like dolphins and whales, like mythic mermaids and mermen in Neptune’s watery domain and access that ancient wisdom in our feelings and intuition.

whales dolphins, Astrology Tara Greene

The 12th sign PISCES is the wet and wild world of DREAMS,  creativity,  BLISS, yoga, PSYCHIC energy, the akashic fluids, the guru, the dissolving of the ego, the final letting go. 

We can go to the Full Moon Baptism to be cleansed and renewed, to slough off old patterns and purify our souls.

This is a HUGE FEMININE HEALING MOON @ 6:38 pm PDT/ 10:38 pm EDT/ Sept 9 @ 1:38  am GMT.  

Chiron, the wounded healer is conjunct the Moon at the 15th and 16th degrees in TRINE- like the TRIPLE GODDESS to Saturn in Scorpio- death and rebirth of old power games and control issues and Juno in Cancer at 16 degrees- a very nurturing caring mothering sign and energy.

This Full Moon is especially great to meditate on as Pisces enhances all Psychic energy. 

it is a time of spiritual realization, channeling, opening up of all the dimensions, telepathy, compassion, COMPLETION.

Cleanse and renew an alter,or  mesa and your crystals on this full moon

I am taking apart and putting my alter back together this night. Put crystals in salt water and the Moon light.

PISCES healing stones- AQUAMARINE, LABRADORITE, under a Full moon you can use Opals, or Moonstones

10 top Pisces super moon MUST DO’s 

1. SURRENDER your MIND to your Intuition, Rewire your head, TRUST your feelings. Connect to your Guardian Angel.

2. PISCES is the dream world, Tune into your dreams.Write them down do this for a full Moon cycle. Have your dreams analyzed ,I offer this service,

3. Do YOGA and MEDITATE

Breathe, let go, go deeper to your True heart and soul.

4. Be honest about your addictions. This is an optimum  time to work with them. We are all addicted to all kinds of subconscious traps- belief systems, consumerism, glamour is a very Pisces thing. Understand the mind, emotion, body connections. Go for help. A.A. is a wonderful spiritual healing programme. So many of us are in pain, as a society and a culture we are all in P.T.S.D. Ask yourself does that feel true for me?  Offer up your pain.

5. SWEAT, sweat lodges, steam baths, foot baths, reflexology.Pisces rules the feet. the soles= souls.

6.. Go on a Mini Vision Quest-  Ask yourself the 4 Questions , working with the  4 ELEMENTS

Why am I here? What’s my True Purpose? Where do I come from? Where am I going?

7. Practice loving kindness. Do charitable work- give away what you don’t need, volunteer, see the suffering in the world and do something to help

8. Do something creative, sing, dance, make art, make love, beauty. 

9. Like Dr. Emoto print the word LOVE on the water you drink. Visualize sending healing energy to the great Lakes, rivers, and Oceans polluted with nuclear radiation.

10. Love Yourself, have compassion,  accept yourself as already enlightened. The 12th house is the place of the Bodhisattva.  Ask for and accept Mother Mary, the Divine Feminine, Qwan Yin, Tara, all healing mothers energy and unconditional love.  Let go of old limiting belief systems.Pisces can be martyrs, let go of that. It serves no one least of all Your most beautiful self.

Venus in Aries, Amazon love bomb,Grand Cardinal Cross

Venus enters ARIES May 2 @ 6:21 pm PDT/ 9:21 pm EDT where she is an Amazon love bomb in the Grand Cardinal Cross.

GOTTA LOVE THAT GRAND CARDINAL CROSS

Yes this girl is on fire. VENUS in ARIES is a warrior Goddess, like DURGA on her white Lion, or Qwan Yin and her dragon who appeared to me in a healing ceremony recently. Like popular media -Xena, Wonder Woman, Hippolyta, Katnis Everdeen or ancient Goddess Diana or Athena, Goddess of War or Brigid- she is fierce, fearless, strong, fights back. Demands HER RIGHTS! She belongs to no man.

The Goddess of love,beauty, values, arts, relationships, ignites a   HOT NEW FEMININE LOVE energy into the GRAND CARDINAL CROSS. This is a whole new angle. 

Venus in Aries is considered in detriment traditionally as she is in Mars’ home territory. Mars is in Libra now, which is Venus’s home territory. They are in MUTUAL RECEPTION which is an nice as it sounds and almost as good as it gets these days.

This means that men and women can be totally understanding, receptive, able to be empathetic to each other and walk in each other shoes. Although I don’t know how many men can walk in those mile high stilettos that many women force themselves to wear.

This is VERY GOOD ENERGY.

In the TAROT the symbol of SEXUAL mutual reception is called ALCHEMY. 

Tarot Trump #14 or Temperance traditionally. It is the interchangeability of one sex to the other, of turning Lead into gold. It is the elixir of life.

So check out HOW Venus aspects you and WHERE LOVE enters the picture in the tear down, break up, rebirth show in your Natal chart- NEED HELP?

May 11 1st Venus GRAND CARDINAL CROSS intervention

VENUS in ARIES opposes MARS in LIBRA  at 9 degrees on MOTHER’S Day for her first foray into the GCC. I see this as a nice balance and equilibrium aspect. Venus in Aries stirs the passsion pots, Mars in Libra tends to sit on the fence. NOt now.

May 14

VENUS in Aries square PLUTO @ 13 + degrees Capricorn

should be some major BAD NEWS in economic sector. Major melt downs in the corporate upper echelons. Much street fighting with women on the barricades, like Eve Enslor’s works.

The GULABI GANG in India- women in bright Fuschia sari’s beat men with sticks to protect women against rape.

May 15 

VENUS conjunct URANUS in Aries @ 14 degrees + 

LOVE CHAOS. Market chaos. Unexpected eruptions of many types. EARTHQUAKES!   tsunami’s, explosions, angry women. Women overturning their roles. NASDAQ could go up or crash. New technological breakthroughs. 

VENUS SQUARE JUPITER @ 17 degrees + ARIES/ CANCER

Gets the heart and the home fires beating faster. If you don’t love where you live, then MOVE. Expansive positive firsts for women, children’s rights, Protection for children’s sexual rights.

Women standing up against MONSANTO and the right for wholesome food for their families.

Housing market could crash big time. Be careful of over confidence,and over indulgences.VERY FERTILE. WEIGHT GAIN.

THE GODDESS IS ALIVE and her love power in the  GCC this puts a more FEMININE energy into the mix. Women don’t be afraid to be fearless, 

own your own power.

LOVE is the greatest power there is.
