Uranus turns Retrograde, revolution redux

Uranus the wild and crazy kinky planet that orbits at a 90-degree angle, turns Retrograde July 29- December 29th. Uranus is the “Higher octave” of  communications planet Mercury. Uranus symbolizes disobeying the rules, thinking outside the box, Revolution and freedom. Uranus or Prometheus in the Greek myths stole fire from the Gods and gave it to mankind to help save them. The Gods were angry and punished him.

Uranus, was discovered March 13, 1781 by William Herschel, born in Germany but   serving as a British astronomer in Bath England. Hershel discovered Uranus with “modern” technology with the use of his large advanced telescopes.  Uranus was the first planet since antiquity to be discovered beyond Saturn, upsetting the old order of the cosmos. 

Here is the whole story on Uranus or Ouranos/Prometheus in Greek myths.

Uranus was a Titan and his name means Heaven. He married Gaia the Earth.  Cronus/Saturn one of their sons, envied his father’s power and castrated him throwing his testicles into the sea, from which Venus/Aphrodite was born. 

The creation of Man by Prometheus by J.M. Hunt 
“Prometheus and Epimetheus were spared imprisonment in Tartarus/Hades  because they had not fought with their fellow Titans during the war with the Olympians. They were given the task of creating man. Prometheus shaped man out of mud, and Athena breathed life into his clay figure.
Prometheus had assigned Epimetheus the task of giving the creatures of the earth their various qualities, such as swiftness, cunning, strength, fur, and wings. Unfortunately, by the time he got to man Epimetheus had given all the good qualities out and there were none left for man. So Prometheus decided to make man stand upright as the gods did and to give him fire.
Prometheus loved man more than the Olympians, who had banished most of his family to Tartarus. So when Zeus decreed that man must present a portion of each animal be sacrificed to the gods, Prometheus decided to trick Zeus. He created two piles, one with the bones wrapped in juicy fat, the other with the good meat hidden in the hide. He then bade Zeus to pick. Zeus picked the bones. Since he had given his word, Zeus had to accept this pile as his share for future sacrifices. In his anger over the trick, he took fire away from man. However, Prometheus lit a torch from the sun and brought it back again to man. Zeus was enraged that man again had fire. He decided to inflict a terrible punishment on both man and Prometheus.
To punish man, Zeus had Hephaestus create a mortal of stunning beauty. The gods gave the mortal many gifts of wealth. He then had Hermes give the mortal a deceptive heart and a lying tongue. This creation was Pandora, the first woman.  { LILITH} A final gift was a jar which Pandora was forbidden to open. Thus completed, Zeus sent Pandora down to Epimetheus, who was staying amongst the men.

Uranus Retrograde, Astrology Tara Greene

Vulcan chaining Prometheus/Uranus

Prometheus had warned Epimetheus not to accept gifts from Zeus, but Pandora’s beauty was too great and he allowed her to stay. Eventually, Pandora’s curiosity about the jar she was forbidden to open became intolerable to her. She opened the jar and out flew all manner of evils, sorrows, plagues, and misfortunes. However, the bottom of the jar held one good thing – hope.
Zeus was angry at Prometheus for three things: being tricked by the sacrifices, stealing fire for man, and refusing to tell Zeus which of Zeus’s children would dethrone him. Zeus had his servants, Force and Violence, seize Prometheus, take him to the Caucasus Mountains, and chain him to a rock with unbreakable adamantine chains. Here he was tormented day and night by a giant eagle tearing at his liver. Zeus gave Prometheus two ways out of this torment. He could tell Zeus who the mother of the child that would dethrone him was, or meet two conditions. The first was that an immortal must volunteer to die for Prometheus, and the second was that a mortal must kill the eagle and unchain him. Eventually, Chiron the Centaur agreed to die for him and Heracles killed the eagle and unbound him.”Interesting that Chiron is also primal in this story. 

URANUS rules think tanks, technology, individual and collective rights, managers and organisations, inventiveness and pioneering. The planet of kinkyness also rules alternatives to “normal” heterosexuality such as the LGBT movement.

 While URANUS is RETROGRADE it doesn’t mean the revolution stops, although many Sanders supporters feel that way. This is is a chance to reflect on the revolution that has been happening in the world at large and also the urge to free ourselves up in our personal lives.

A revolutionary fever has been in the air and in Bernie Sanders speeches since he first started campaigning for President. Revolution is in the air in Turkey, albeit all revolutions are not created equal and don’t mean a better deal for everyone either.  Pokeman Go’s big success is also a Uranian thing. 

Sanders supporters have been awakened and that is URANUS’s energy. They have seen the Light, that is URANUS’s bolt of lightning wake up call. Yes most people are very angry, upset and will walk away from the whole dirty politics of the DNC. Others will want to continue what Sanders inspired and work behind the scenes to create real revolutionary change. The DNC is very deeply entrenched. They used Sanders to test the waters. Then once he got too popular he was shut down by the big boys at the top. I think most people can see that. 

You are in your MID-LIFE CRISIS if you were born in 1975

 born in 1975? you are going through your Mid-Life crisis which is a Uranus opposed to Uranus at your birth. Break away from your ususal hudrum routine.

While URANUS moves backwards we have a chance to revision our revolution.  Meet up with your tribe, replot your strategies, aim to work behind the scenes. Retrograde energies are like that.  This may mean some back peddling from Republican conservatives who are notoriously anti-gay rights and women’s rights. We must be ever vigilant to protect our freedoms.  What do you think?

Look at where URANUS is when you were born to see how much of a natural rebel you are. Also look at and where Uranus will be transiting Retrograde from @ 24+ degrees ARIES  to 20+ degrees ARIES. This is where you have to review your freedom fighter status. Cue: Street-fighting man by The Rolling Stones -play it backwards for hidden meanings.

June Astrology guidance, love, moon cycles

June is named for the Roman Goddess Juno, symbol of marriage and Divine Union. Juno/Hera in Greek was Zeus /Jove’s wife. The all faithful, ideal wife to Zeus’ philandering. She is associated with Peacocks, beauty, seeing in many directions, we call it multi-tasking; what women do best. She is descended from Hindu Goddess Saraswati, Goddess of creativity.  I believe Juno is the symbol for Feminine genius. Yes we have Juno awards in Canada,

June. Marriage Goddess,Tara Greene astrology

June is the most popular month to get married because Juno’s Blessings were strongest during this month. 

 June HIGHLIGHTS

The second Saturn in Sagittarius to Neptune in PISCES @  square exact on June 17th.

This is being reflected on the world’s stage and in our personal lives as the conflict between the old-fashioned SATURN conservative, {Sagittarius} religion and politics, involving immigrants,LGBT foreigners and justice. There is a reality check-Saturn- between the Old Guard,old tyme religion and the more open NEPTUNE in PISCES spiritual ideals of Oneness, an immanent spiritual and emotional experience versus organized religion {Saturn} and outter authority. 

Hypocrite alert! It’s not what you say it’s what you do. I am married to a triple Capricorn, and I am a triple Sagittarius. We live this dichotomy for the last 20 years. 

Our dreams and ideals are undergoing the Saturn tests of time, practicality, reality, sweat and perseverance that Saturn demands.  This major square roots out sham shamans, liars, phony gurus and unjust laws. It creates a more universal education system and aspiring to higher spiritual laws.

Many people s relationships are ending as the reality that the one you thought was your soul mate is revealed to be someone you may be in a co-dependent relationship with. All that glitters is not gold but lead. 

NEW MOON in GEMINI June 4

Features a Grand Cross of the SUN MOON and VENUS exactly conjunct at the 15th and most powerful degree of GEMINI opposing Saturn Rx and squaring  Jupiter in Virgo {14+ degrees} opposite NEPTUNE and the South Node at 17 degrees PISCES. The web of maya is a bigger broader web than we have imagined.

“Someone’s gonna get a hurtin'” as comedian Russel Peters says. 

SPLITSVILLE is one way of putting it. 

Relationships that were built on projections and have no solid foundations will crumble just like that.  We must choose which path/dream/ideal to pour concrete into and structure and which to abandon.

The Democratic primaries are on June 7th and there may be a big recount issue as VENUS and SUN inconjunct PLUTO on that day in EDT. That’s messed up power pays.

MERCURY enters GEMINI its home turf JUNE 12th

It’s fair sailing for new friends, LITEness of being and smooth communications. 

Neptune turns RETROGRADE June 13th 

REVISIT that old martyr state, how you played the victim. Relish the it “was all their fault” state. You will be forced to see the hard cold light of day and the lies you have told yourself with Saturn still squaring Neptune. It will be painful but ultimately it frees you.

Venus enters CANCER June 17th

where family, home, children, nourishment and nurturing others and ourselves becomes most important. 

FATHER’s DAY has difficult aspects of MARS inconjunct URANUS 

Do be careful at BBQ’s, handling anything flammable, and please don’t accept a gun as a Father’s Day Gift. DO give a deserving DAD the gift of  an AMAZING ASTROLOGY CHART READING-  

THE 2nd BLUE MOON occurs on JUNE 20th, 12 hours before the SUMMER SOULSTICE in the Northern Hemisphere/WINTER Solstice in the SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE.

MERCURY is OPPOSITE Saturn and SQUARE Neptune in PISCES.

Who wants to pay the tab on that dream?

The 29 th degree of SAGITTARIUS is a critical degree, Close to the GALACTIC CENTER @ 27 degrees  the Full Moon is opposed to VENUS in CANCER sextiled by JUNO in LIBRA at 29 degrees conjunct to  TRUE LILITH at 29 degrees LIBRA { 3 degrees Scorpio BML} and squared by CHIRON at 25+ degrees PISCES. 

A lot of this is about higher education for WOMEN and girls. Laws to protect women against rape and abuse. Sagittarius is ruled by JUPITER very strong at the middle 15th degree of VIRGO where he builds, patiently and meticulously for the harvest. Laws about International imports of foods and grains and MONSANTO will also get tougher.

THE SOLSTICE, one of the four major STARGATES of the year opens up JUNE 20th @ 6:34 pm EDT/ 3:34 pm PDT/10:34 pm GMT. 

The Moon is in Capricorn opposite VENUS in CANCER conjunct the SUN. The Moon’s position always governs the people’s emotional needs. It is protective, nurturing, conservative, all about defending the homeland. 

SATURN at 11 degrees is close to where SATURN was on 9/11, and opposite to where PLUTO was  {14 degrees SAGITTARIUS} indicating that the karmic seeds which were sown then will be blowing back in America’s face. 

The sign of Cancer s governed by the MOON at 5+ degrees CAPRICORN favours conservative, older, traditional, corporate views. But women are very much favoured Hillary Clinton- and a strong force. JUNO at 29 degrees LIBRA squares the SUN Moon and VENUS. ERIS, new planet symbolizing the uninvited fairy godmother is conjunct URANUS at 23+ conjunct CERES. The Great Mother and the uninvited Dark Feminine who stirs up trouble join forces. There will be a huge wild card played.

“May you live in interesting times” is an old saying. Yup. 888 characters.

How to love a sexy freak

DECEMBER 4 Mars enters Aquarius  @ 3:37 pm PST/ 6:57 pm EST

Yes its time to get your freak on. Mars is sex, passion, action. Love your freak, his freak, her freak,everybody’s freak.

Gotta Love those Aquarians, and all things Aquarian. freedom, rebellion, technology, the tribe, individual rights.

Aquarius rules, engineers, broadcasting, faith healers, psychologists, parliaments, communes, ether, blood disorders,  batteries, modern architectures,

Mars in Aquarius this is cyber sex, robot sex, mechanical, shiny sex toys,

It’s detached, intellectual, inventive, tuned into Higher consciousness. 

I am sure you have loved one Aquarian in your life?

NO? If not, perhaps there is something to take note of. Why not?

yes this is the dawning of the Age of  Aquarius, Age of Aquarius. 

Gay marriage, LGBT are all very Aquarian.

Love your iPhone? iPad,is all Aquarian.

Mars in Aquarius is very cool, very detached. No messy dramatic LEO type emotional stuff now.

It’s the sign opposite Leo of course.

YAY for geekdom until Jan 12/13 2015 when Mars enters Pisces.

Mars in Aquarius encourages you to do everything outside of the box , outside of your normal.

there will be mucho REVOLUTIONS protests, V for Vendetta type of energy.

Be aware and awake to inspirational insights, the blast of the Lightning bolt.

This aspect also signifies MALE LIBERATION from the old MACHO hero stance.

Men need to explore beyond their narrow bandwidth of what is acceptable and normally considered masculine.

It is very confining, it keeps men stuck in a cookie cutter way of acting, especially in the corporate world.

This is very important now as the old Patriarchal stereotype of the male predator, the soldier who rapes,uses and abuses women is being outted in the media.

This is the counterpart to the Goddess returning and a NEW EQUALITY and freedom in relationships. 

Uranus is the modern ruler of Aquarius and Uranus is about to square PLUTO on Dec 14/15 in the 6th of the 7 exact cardinal crosses. 

This ties in the revolutionary impact of these times.

There may be a shocking realization for a lot of men, a lot of the population a rippling out effect.

Check out where the 11th Fixed air sign is in your natal chart.

AQUARIUS rules: astronauts, Arabia, Congress, Lithuania, movies, paradoxes, Russia, Syria, Toronto and x-rays.

MARS is putting the passion into the outsider look.

Aquarius is the sign of managers, organizers, co-operatives and shared leadership.

The current popularity of Mockingjay the hit movie, based on the HUNGER GAMES Trilogy

about heroine Katniss Everdeen and her revolutionary role in bringing down President Snow and PANEM  to bring freedom from tyranny is totally apt for this planetary energy.

Mars in Aquarius folks march to their own drummers, are strongly unique in themselves.

In an era of many false choice where everyone follows the herd and everyone has the same culturally defined status symbols. Mars in Aquarius enables you to stop and tune into a higher vibration and learn to sense your own individual heartbeat.  

Just because Aquarius is none for being detached doesn’t mean they can’t be sexy.
