Taurus New Dark Moon, healing the demons

A Taurus New Moon brings out our laziness and that is why I am a bit late here this month.

NEW MOON May 17 @ 9:13 pm /May 18 @ 12:13 a.m. EDT/ 4:13 am GMT @ 26 + degrees of Taurus 

It is an INtense sensual in the body New Moon, with a wicked kick of potential healing and exorcising of fear around women’s sexuality and awakening Kundalini energy. We are riding the bull and riding the snake. Note Taurus and Scorpio opposition.

Kundalini Yoga Tara Greene astrology

All New Moon’s are new intentions. We are back where it all began in the dark VOID of all potential.

New Moons were traditionally the time for all women to be menstruating in the world.  Before electric lights threw women’s natural rhythms off, women always bled in synchronicity with the Moon’s cycles. All the women were gathered  in the Red tent, the moon lodge, yurt, cave or temple. This was the holiest of holy times. The word Tabu originally meant sacred. The women would bleed onto their mother the earth giving back the life-giving blood which creates all life.  

The New Moon is exactly on the star with the blackest reputation of all  ALGOL, Medusa’s head. A very DARK delicious New MOON indeed. This star symbolizes the patriarch’s greatest fear of women’s sexuality, of her sacred menstrual blood and her erotic power to destroy a man’s ego with sacred sexuality.  Which is what he fears and what he needs most to touch soul.

Fixed star expert Diana K. Rosenberg says the star is associated with ” Violence, beheading, hanging, choking, asphyxiation, electrocution, murder, mob violence.” so be aware of this over the next month.

This very physical Taurus New Moon will take us deep into the darkness of the caves within ourselves where we create our own realities. We will have to battle the shadow, the monster, the dragon, the Gorgon, our personal shadows in whatever form it manifests.

Medusa was originally an Amazon warrioress from Lybia. Her dreadlocks or snakes symbolize  her spiritual or Kundalini transformative powers. Women warriors were fighting back against the advancing Patriarchy. 

KUNDALINI energy

This sacred force which rises form the base of the spine up the chakras to the head awakens cosmic consciousness. This powerful regenerative force has always been symbolized by a snake and many cultures revered -or like Christianity and Judaism feared snakes for this reason. Kundalini energy clears old traumas, and brings enlightenment. Sacred sexuality, symbolized by the snakes was the major initiation path that men received in the Holy Temples of the Goddess, which all women served at before they married. Especially after war this rite was Holy to clear the men from profane bloodshed which we now call P.T.S. D. into sacredness and oneness again.

Read my articles on awakening Kundalini energy on the Cosmic Intelligence Agency site

Algol has many symbols yet she has a Saturn- Jupiter ruling. This star also has positive attributes. Capulus the star proceeding Algol is the handle of the sword which Perseus used to cut off the demons head. But if you know the story it was using the mirror which enabled Perseus to get close enough to slay the demon. ALgol is not Lillith do not get them confused.

The name Algol comes from the Arabic for ghoul or demon. It also means alcohol which Muslims are forbidden to drink. As Psychologist Carl Jung realized the word alcohol or spirit is the same name as spirituality. The soul speaks in metaphors and puns as it does in dreams.The thirst for alcohol to quench emotional pain is an outer bandage against the pain when what the soul needs to heal is spiritual healing.

Algol points out our need to escape from pain through drugs, TV, sex, money power, shopping, whatever your drug of choice is. That escapism is fear and a refusal to listen to the inner pain for the soul’s cry for healing and redemption by the Source. 

With Mercury turning Retrograde May 18 we will definitely be looking back, looking inwards.

Use this New Moon to Full Moon time to

ensure that you are in your body and that your heads are not separated from our entire beings. Taurus energy is brave and we can ride the bull to stubbornly face our shadows, by seeing them reflected everywhere. By doing the great work we will be less critical, rejecting, racist, and we can learn to give the demon the love it is truly needing. We will learn to love ourselves as or neighbour.

Women need to embrace their sacred menstrual blood and their bleeding times as Holy, to be in their bodies. The modern Red Tent movement is hugely successful as it reminds woman of what they need to be whole.  Start at this New Moon.

 Mercury Retrograde is square Neptune 

this is the perfect time to see how faded out people are. How little you are in touch with your body instincts and reality and to change this.

Mars in Gemini is also square Neptune

We can use the sharpness of Mars in our minds to cut through the denial and deal with our addictions.

Venus opposite PLUTO over the next week is very powerful.

Unconscious family power struggles erupting, secret love affairs, passion, erotic fantasy, healing in the family, tenderness or power? Women struggling against the patriarchal structures.. Passive-aggressive. Stock market can be erratic. 

Jupiter is Trine to URANUS 

this is innovative, rebellious, high-tech, courage, over-confident,but also brings confident to be your own unique individual.

Mars is still opposite Saturn

so tread lightly. It is also  involved in a large T- square of Sun conjunct Mars opposite Saturn square Neptune. 

This aspect can be very positive and creative. It will be a challenge to stay on your highest heights. 

GRAND AIR TRINE

North Node to Ceres in Aquarius to Mars/Mercury 

CERES is the great Mother and all heroes pledged fealty to HER. The north node in Libra calls for equality, fairness, balance, judiciousness, wise thinking and a big overview.

As a re-initiated Snake Priestess I will use this New Moon to convene with my Inner snake Goddess, Lilith.  See video by my teacher Kathleen

This is a powerful New Moon of transformation of shedding the old skins, of bravery, solid courageousness, plodding the earth in search of beauty, sensuality and creativity. 

Nourish your body, and your soul. Set new long-term intentions for  6 months from now.

Discordia in effect! Eris square the SUN

Jan 13 2015

Eris is in an exact square, a 90 degree tense angle to the SUN today. DISCORD CHAOS and TROUBLE is on HIGH ALERT! Eris was discovered on Jan 5 2005 in California, the dwarf planet which was supposed to be a 10th planet in our solar system. She was almost names Xena for planet x and for the Tv show.

Eris is named for the Greek Goddess of CHAOS, STRIFE and DISCORD contention and rivalry. 

Eris, Las Vegas, Astrology Tara Greene

STATUE OF ERIS, and the golden apple, Caesar’s Palace  Las Vegas 

Beware the chaos. Eris symbolism is much like Uranus’s chaotic energy. We have seen how Uranian and Plutonian energies have been rattling the world these days. 

What to do in the chaos? Stay centered, breathe, radiate love. “Blow love” at people as Stuart Wilde used to say. 

She was thought of as a bloodthirsty Goddess haunting battlefields to drink blood. This reminds me that originally she may have been a Kali-like Goddess.

HESIOD described her in his Theogony as a Goddess who gave birth to many ghouls and demons to plague humankind such as Ponos- Toil, Limos- Starvation, Algea- Pain, Hysminai- Fightings, Makhai- Battles, Phonoi- Murders, Androktasiai-Manslaughterers, Neikea- Quarrelers, the Pseudo-Logoi -Lies, the Amphilogiai-Disputes,  there are more horrid children she birthed but you get the picture.

Eris was directly connected to PANDORA and her box of ill repute and dangers. A feminine metaphor for a dangerous vagina. 

She was not invited to the wedding and to get her revenge she threw a Golden Apple inscribed with “to the fairest” at 3 goddesses, Hera Athena and Venus/Aphrodite who battle it out. This eventually led to the Trojan War and much loss.  The apple relates her to VENUS and the Number 5. All Ancient Goddess are covered in Patriarchal references so her origins would place her closer to Lilith.

Eris was discovered at 19 plus degrees of Aries Tropical when she came into our consciousness again. She entered Aries in March of 1925. Her orbittal period is 558 years, twice as long as Pluto’s. She is now at 22 + degrees ARIES. She is the 9th most massive body known to orbit the sun.  We don’t know that much about her but we will soon when the New Horizons probe arrives on  Pluto on 14 July 2015 carrying Clyde Tombaugh’s ashes. He was the one who discovered Pluto in Flagstaff Arizona in 1930. 

The SUN  squares her twice a year when at 22 degrees Cancer and 22 degrees Capricorn and opposes her at 22 degrees of Libra.

Of course we can see how since we rediscovered her archetype that there is much too much discord and disagreement these days with people shooting all kinds of vile vindictiveness; terrorism, racism, gay bashing, bully’s, and internet shout outs. 

There is more  prominent Goddess symbolism.

LILITH the original WOMAN is at 3 degrees of VIRGO, sign of the harvest.

Showing us that we have thrown ourselves out of  Eden, the earthly paradise. We have  despised, humiliated, spit upon, raped, and rejected the Earth as the Patriarchy did to Lilith/Eris herself. As the Patriarchy continues to do to women. We have got to get back to the Garden from where we originated.

Lilith is opposite Neptune at 5 degrees Pisces-

This is our delusions about woman, our addictions to sex, drugs and denial as an escape from pain and refusing to face these deeply wounded archetypes of ours. And what about the Oceans we have messed up? Or the dreams we have left in the wilderness?

Lilith is square to Goddess Athena at 2 degrees Sagittarius.

ATHENA is the warrior and wisdom Goddess, who was originally an AMAZON from Libya.  Her wise owl, is one of Lilith’s symbols as well. She is a seer, one who sees in the dark.

This aspect symbolizes the anger, vengeance and warrior aspect of the Feminine Psyche in the masculine. Athena in Sagittarius is going to re-educate the world about women’s intelligence. She is aiming arrows higher, telling the truth, being optimistic, and will introduce new laws and education.

Athena is conjunct to Saturn in Sagittarius

Athena was patriatchalized ,born fully grown and armored from her father Zeus- Jupiter’s head. Jupiter rules Sagittarius and Pisces. Saturn is the Father Time, the architect. Saturn structures, limits and is karma.  Another symbol of the Feminine fighting back from patriarchal karma.

One of Sagittarius symbols is the Rainbow. The Rainbow is traditionally a symbol of a blessings from Heaven. An open chakra bridge between heaven and earth. Lets us walk on that path. Let us build the Rainbow bridge.

 THE TROUBLES – U2 2014 

 LEONARD COHEN- THE FUTURE 1992  

weight loss for the mind and spirit; North Node, New Moon Tara Greene astrology

NEW MOON in PISCES MARCH 4  @ 3:47 pm EST/ 8:47 pm GMT

 

MIDWIFING THE NEW CYCLES on this NEW MOON

 

Well we’re at the end of a long {84 year} cycle and  journey. In Pisces, the last of the signs the most spiritual, we return to the ocean of Oneness from which everything began.  We are mere weeks from Spring’s re-birth and a whole lot of other new births as well.

 

This is a very PREGNANT HEAVILY PISCEAN MOON.

 

Along with Sun and Moon at 13 degrees, we have Mercury at 20 degrees. MARS at 7 degrees passes through a sign only once every two years! So from Feb 22 – April 1 Mars energizes the spiritual warrior.

 

CHIRON the wounded healer is at 1 degree of Pisces.

Chiron recently re-entered Pisces Feb 8, after dipping into Pisces from April 19 {the day of the BP deep-water oilrig explosion}- July 20 2010.

 

CHIRON WILL BE TRAVELLING THROUGH PISCES UNTIL 2018

 

So we should start to get familiar with the healing vulnerability and sensitivity that Chiron brings to our very Souls’. Chiron in Pisces is a huge oceanic soul/ universe healing. Chiron in Pisces will bring the reclamation of everything, all of life as Sacred as wholly immanent. A far cry from the duality, and separation that has plagued humanity since the separation between humans and nature since the beginning of the Patriarchy, the Old Testament. Chiron in Pisces will break down and through any barriers, enabling us to feel our connection to each other as never before. It will hurt in the beginning. Better clean up your act now, because there will be no more lying, cheating, double talking. In other words everyone will have the SIGHT, the Feeling, the sensitivity, the awareness.

 

EVERYONE will hear everyone else’s thoughts. Telepathy will be faster than the Net, more connected than FB, become much more accepted. Many far righters will label it the devil’s work.

 

GET GROUNDED now for the barriers between individuals is thinning out as the walls of the birth canal thins in prep for the baby’s birth. This is the birth of the ONE.

 

I will outline Chiron’s affect for each sign in another complete article.

URANUS planet of Revolution has been in Pisces since 2003 {except for a brief prequel into Aries last year from May 27- Aug. 13, 2010.

URANUS IS At that last critical degree of Pisces. Uranus at this fateful degree is causing a great deal of the turmoil in Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, Yemen and will step it up even more so when Uranus enters ARIES March 11 for the next 8 years.  –See more below

URANUS in Aries takes 84 years on average to make one complete cycle. Uranus entered in Aries just before the Great Depression in 1929, the rise of fascism and is now circling round again.  Uranus brings breakdowns of old established Saturnine order, new inventions, new technologies, in Aries brings new life, new spirit, new independence.

Uranus and Pluto will be BIG PLAYERS

in the momentous changes coming shortly.

Uranus and Pluto formed 5 squares to each other when Pluto was in Cancer – Uranus in Aries from 1932-1934.

Uranus in Aries will again square Pluto now in Capricorn forming SEVEN exact squares between 2012 and 2015 all between 7 – 15 degrees of cardinal signs.

Anyone born with planets at these degrees of Aries and Capricorn and opposing at 7-15 degrees of Libra Cancer will get the full Revolutionary rug pulled out from under them whammy! 

 

NEED ADVICE TO GET YOU THROUGH THESE HUGE CHANGES? I am at your service Astrology, Tarot and Intuitive sessions worldwide by Skype- taragreene@sacredartscentre.com

  

The NORTH NODE- Squaring critical degree Uranus

Just entered Sagittarius on the 3rd of March. The North Node representing the people’s collective highest spiritual goal promptly SQUARES URANUS!

Indicating the highest goal is to complete the spiritual lesson of compassion, oneness, and freedom!

This is what the 29th degree of Pisces symbolizes with Uranian individual freedom for the total collective. The 29th degree of Sagittarius is TRUTH, JUSTICE, DEMOCRACY!     

All the planets are lined up from Universal signs of Sag. To Pisces with Jupiter in early Aries and only Saturn at 16 degrees of Libra by his lonesome self. I almost wrote Libya instead of Libra. Libya will get its just karmic balancing soon too.

 

As LIFE AS WE KNOW IT

will soon be changed dramatically with the new Uranus in Aries cycle begins on March 11th take this time at the NEW MOON in the last sign to let go of as much emotional, spiritual, karmic baggage, hidden inner enemy stuff as you can, illusions, delusions, addictions all PISCES territory now!

 

MEDITATION FOR THIS NEW MOON-

DRINK lots of water. Meditate, set your intention, dream on it.

Visualize all that has been holding you back unconsciously as floating dissolving, easily detaching, see it being absorbed by the great river of Life, the unbounded Spring of Life, the Holy waters of the Sacred Well, returning to Spirit, cleansed in the heart of the Great Mystery. In whatever way it appear and appeals to you wash it clean.  Get comfortable with having no boundaries, nothing to hide.  It is the BIG REVOLUTION, the shift in consciousness, the rainbow body, Dec 21 2012, the Ascencion.

 Sing TAKE ME TO THE RIVER –

The river is of course the Milky way.
  
 North Node enters Sagittarius  WEIGHT LOSS!

North Node enters SAGITTARIUS March 3 for the next 1.5  years!

This next era will be a Huge weight loss for the mind spirit, religion, legal issues, foreign affairs, border crossings, metaphysics, passion, honesty, humour, lightening things up a lot. The motto: ‘THE TRUTH THE WHOLE TRUTH AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH= no emotional baggage.

 Since the North Node entered Capricorn August 2009, we’ve been working hard under alot of pressure, attempting to be sure-footed goats as the shifting sands of time move and sway under our feet. There’s been earth-quakes and mine collapses, oil rig blow ups and heads rolling, trying to keep our footing, supposed to  be sure?  -Not!

As we progress deeper and deeper into Pluto in Capricorn country till 2023 I might remind you, we have to thnk long term.

It hasn’t been easy, all hard work, miserly, taxes, corporations dying and being reborn, world economies falling apart. All the unresolved shadow work of Mom and Apple pie of the Pluto in Cancer generation who are now busy dying off. I sympathize and empathise my parents are of that gerneration too. My Mom passed away in 2009.

There’s a huge EMOTIONAL weight of everything that wasn’t expressed, felt, acknowledged, from the SOUTH NODE IN CANCER from a generation of play it safe, everything is white and nice, picket fences, women stay at home, art is for sissy boys etc.  Have you seen PLEASANTVILLE? 

That’s the South Node in Cancer waking up. Well all that is ending, thank goodness to Pluto and evolution. We’re at the end of the line of North Node in Capricorn territory, so wave bye-bye for now.

 MARCH 3 THE FIRES of SAGITTARIUS  INSPIRATION begin to  LIGHTEN US UP

A new lighter YOU spirit  will begin to burn March 3 when the North Node representing our highest spiritual goal enters the truth-telling inspiring, vast,philosophies and master teachings of  The North Node in Sagittarius. 

Then URANUS, KING OF REVOLUTIONS finally enters ARIES, THE NEW LIFE SIGN March 11 for the next 7 years!-that’s another whole post 

You think you’ve seen ch- ch- changes now! You aint seen nothin’ yet. Uranus is back where he started from 84 years ago. Before the start of the Great Depression. The old maxim is  ” If you don’t remember to learn from your mistakes you’re bound to repeat them.”  

SAGITTARIUS shoOTS, he scores! GALAcTIC CEnTER by MID-MARCH!

Wow never thought I’d use a hockey metaphor! Especially as I am from Toronto, home of the Maple leafs! But Sagittarius energy is very SPorty! 

 Sagittarius is symbolized by the arrow pointing to the heavens, sign of faith, optimism. Humour, easy-going, unpretentious, animal loving, nature seeking, inspiring,teaching, philosophy, higher education, travelling, gypsy like are all Sag. keywords.  Sagittarius is cross-cultural fertilization, democracy,pan- religious, foreigners, travelling, mixing it all up.

Much legal change is in the offing as Sagittarius represents SACRED LAW, not man -made law. Values, fashion, gypsy nomadic life styles will all come into vogue with North Node in Sagittarius.

FASHION: way more casual, not fussy, sporty for womena and men. Colours: red, black, turquoise dramatic bright/ contrasty. Teaching, publishing, schooling and all forms of Higher education will  go through huge changes and upheavals.  People will want to enjoy life and be into a Lifestyle of FREEDOM not chained to the rat race for status symbols. There will be much movement of peoples across borders and opening of borders and International laws brought into effect. 

BY MID-MARCH  the North NOde will be directly On the GALACTIC CENTER

the Heart and birth place, the very cross/quarter of Dec. 21, 2012. 

THE GREAT RIFT IN THE MILKY WAY  is the CROSSING POINT or SOUL CENTRAL

THE NORTH NODE WILL BE POINTING to the TRUTH THERE. 

Lest we forget the SHADOW SIDE OF SAGITTARIUS. 

The South Node is GEMINI- South Node is where we have come from, where we are comfortable, the path of least resistance. The South Node in Gemini is all about communications. Duality, the mind. Gemini as shadow is immaturity, information gathering for the sake of being busy mentally.  

Think now about your highest truth, how far and high you want to travel while North Node is in Sagittarius. Spread your spiritual wings and fly..
