Equinox Astrology, Ostara, Pagan New year

For the first time in 2016 DAY and NIGHT are equal. This is the first of two balanced “sacred marriage” days in the year.

Equinox, Horoscope Tara Greene

This event marks SPRING in the NORTHERN HEMISPHERE and AUTUMN in the SOUTHERN. It is a time of perfect equipoise, the balance of the masculine and the feminine energies as a new spark of Life is lit.

March 19 @ 9:30 pm PDT/ March 20 @ 12:30 am EDT/ 4:30 am GMT  

SUN enters zero degrees of Aries and an archetypal new cycle/year begins.  Zero Aries is the beginning of all astrology calculations. It’s International Astrology Day BTW. Aries symbolizes the first spark of LIFE “Let there be light” the Big Bang. Bonfires are lit in celebration. Rituals are created to symbolize rebirth, the sowing of seeds, pregnancy, marriage and joy for a fertile, fruitful New Year of much growth and abundance.

In the NORTH it is a time of REBIRTH.  The time of conception, of the creative spark and the egg, zero/void of all possibility meeting.

ZERO point in the TAROT is connected to the symbol of THE FOOL. Total OPen to new possibilities.

Pagans celebrate this date as the first spoke in the wheel of the year, associated with carnal pleasure, new growth and fertility.  Traditionally associated with Eostre { from which the word estrogen} or ASTARA which means the Stars. Eostre was a Saxon/Germanic Goddess of springs and fertility associated with the Dawn { Venus}, with rabbits or hares, very fertile animals and eggs. Also associated with the Norse Goddess FREYA /Venus/ Venredi in French. The Christians adopted these emblems for Easter which is celebrated on the first Sunday after the first full moon following the vernal equinox. 

The astrology chart symbolizes the entire year from Spring 2016 until Spring 2017. It is a very important chart to discern. You can also use it to plan the next three months cycle until Solstice.

Overall ,we are swimming in deep waters. Besides indicating a lot of flooding, things are extremely emotional, moody and changeable. There are Six planets including points in PISCES- a mystical, dreamy, creative, spiritual sign. Venus and Neptune, Ceres, Chiron the SOUTH NODE and MERCURY. This augurs for an intensely moody,   spiritual, compassionate, karmic, dreamy, creative journey. We will  be dealing with endings, facing delusions, illusions, our addictions, martyrdom and turning inwards. This is a time of discovering our shadows, the hidden inner realms of the psyche and the shadows of the collective.

The MOON, always symbolizing the Feminine, the moods of the people,the unconscious and emotional needs is in LEO, a fixed fire sign of Royalty and Divine Right. Powerful  passionate feelings will rule. There will be much pride, courage, daring, grandstanding, acting entitled and competition. Moon in Leo needs to be the leader, the center of attention. Selfies, it’s all about me, the ego. We will need to be very courageous, and wear our hearts on our sleeves. Leo is the strength of the will and the heart, and also the sign of the child. Innocence is coming up again.

Mercury the planet of communications is weak in Pisces opposite the sign it rules. Mercury is squaring the GALACTIC CENTER ENCOURAGING US TO SEE THE BIG PICTURE.  We can receive messages from Higher Realms if we meditate and stay open to listening to our Guardian Angels. Our minds are governed by our moods and unconscious. This is a very creative but be careful of being too dreamy and projecting what you want to see onto others. 

VENUS and NEPTUNE are conjoined at 10 degrees OF PISCES, the symbol of the SACRED MARRIAGE.

In the Tarot this is the symbol of Alchemy Tarot Trump #14, echoing the day/night balance. This is an extremely beautiful conjunction. Did you watch the Bachelor on Monday? The feelings when Ben got down on one knee to ask her to marry him and she says yes; that was a VENUS Neptune moment. Neptune is the Higher Octave of Venus and this aspect can take us higher in love than we have ever been before. This is cosmic, unconditional love, charity, benevolence and acceptance of ourselves with the Source. We are both all humans and eternal souls. It is blissful, extremely spiritual and creative. This is Christ Consciousness/oneness guiding us.

This aspect opens increases our intuitive and telepathic senses. Your sleeping dreams and your waking life become seamless. Synchronicities abound. For those who choose the Highest expression fo these two planets it can be an amazingly rewarding experience. But also there are the dangers of denial, illusions, delusions, snake-oil salesmen, addictions, projections, and shadow material being romanticized. This is not an easy territory to navigate.

We are in a tense T-square from JUPITER in VIRGO, to SATURN in SAGITTARIUS to NEPTUNE in PISCES.

WHAT is real and what is an illusion? Telling the truth is what Saturn demands.

Jupiter rules both SAGITTARIUS and PISCES traditionally. Jupiter is the WHEEL OF FORTUNE in the Tarot, the teacher, leader, the optimist, risk-taker, symbolizing faith. Jupiter is conjunct the NORTH NODE pointing us to follow VIRGO energy. We need to be grounded, humble, hard working, practical, on budget, health conscious, disciplined.  We need to honor the Body as the Temple of the Soul, especially if we are going to manifest that Heavenly Venus/ Neptune conjunction.

Virgo is ruled by MERCURY. Jupiter and Mercury are in mutual reception, easily accommodating each other. We need to embody our spirituality in very grounded ways. Our work, our speech our ways of life must reflect this, real/spiritual energy as immanent.

SATURN, LORD of TIME, OBSTACLES, KARMA is at 16+ SAGITTARIUS squares Jupiter and Neptune. Saturn is the bottom line of reality. Saturn’s lessons challenge us to incorporate Virgo discrimination with NEPTUNE in PISCES compassion. Saturn tests and matures us, he is the tax man,the consequences of our actions. PISCES is beautiful but can be a hall of mirrors. Jupiter in VIRGO demands substance; smart, lean, simple and workable. NEPTUNE in PISCES can be escapism, false gurus of every kind. Neptune in Pisces is glamour, Hollywood, fake Reality shows . . The Lord of Time’s presence  in SAGITTARIUS governs politics and he has just crossed the U.S. Ascendant for the first time in 29 years. He uses humor to make his points. I think the joke is at the U.S. expense. It can also mean government crackdowns and limitations on freedom of speech.

Jupiter is Trining Pluto the billionaire’s transit.  The Plutocracy, the 1% gains more and more wealth by the minute and is striving to control the earth. This is also what we must watch out for and make Saturn in Sagittarius laws to limit and control this. On a personal level,trines are considered beneficial, easy aspects. Use it to your advantage if you have earth planets at 15-19 degrees in your natal chart.

URANUS in ARIES @ 19 degrees is square to PLUTO, the last degrees of their square is still in effect. URANUS is inconjunct to JUPITER. With Goddess ATHENA at 19 degrees AQUARIUS they create a YOD or Finger of God to Jupiter. We need to put on our warrioress gear and fight the higher consciousness AQUARIUS battle for the rights of women especially but for all of humanity to be at the table together. Virgo is the harvest and we need to care and account for the earth and the environment, the food supply and be accountable.

LILITH at 22 degrees LIBRA is opposite URANUS in ARIES

There are some strange politics going on. LILITH symbolizes the collective’s shadow of the rejected dark feminine energy who is independent and refuses to compromise. As strange as this may sound, i feel in its twisted, mysogynist, ego-driven, distorted way, a part of Lilith’s energy is coming out through Donald Trump’s mouth. Yes it is in its discrimination of others, Mexicans, Muslims, it is non-descriminated. It is more like the repressed masses unconscious energy. Energy can only be repressed for so long, when it is it comes out in angry, hateful ways. In another way Bernie Sanders is also voicing Lilith’s message by speaking out as an Independent against the powers that be. They are two opposites sides of a similar energy. Like The Fool and the King in the Tarot. The Fool is the divine enlightened One. The King is the power hungry ego.

Set new intentions. I will be doing ceremony in Toronto and sending blessings to you all for a wonderful new year. 

Happy Ostara,

Leap Day, Donald Trump

Special Leap Day today, a kind of day out of time. A once every four years extra day to balance out the crazy Gregorian Calendar we live by. Traditionally its a day for women to be aggressive and ask men to marry them.  My husband and I began our relationship 20 years ago on Feb 29 so we are celebrating our 5th year together. 

Feb. 29th is an intense and powerful day to focus your desires with your will power or orende as the Naguals call it and create from the 1st, 2nd and 3rd ‪#‎chakras‬ as the SCORPIO Moon conjuncts MARS at 27+ degrees. This is a very obsessive, sexy, emotional, powerful, transformative energy. Release everything that has been holding you back.

Note this degree is square to REGULUS’s traditional degree the sign of KINGS and is why Donald Trump is getting very hot flack as his Natal Mars is 27 degrees LEO.  

Just a thought here. The Universe always speaks  in puns. Donald Trump’s name means a Trumpet or Triumph. The TRUMP cards of the Tarot is from one of the original names of the card game of Triumphs.

The Angel Gabriel is the one who blows the TRUMPET or the whistle on JUDGEMENT DAY. He is the announcing Angel and is connected to the Fixed Star Fomalhaut at 4 degrees PISCES in Tropical Zodiac.  I am not a Bible thumping Apocalypse person at all.  Gabriel is traditionally shown on the Card #20 called JUDGEMENT and named THE AEON or New Age in the THOTH tarot

the TRUMPET CARD

#20 Judgement Tarot. Tara Greene

The Ansata Tarot. #20 The Trumpet or Triumph/Trump of Gabriel 

This card coming after #19 THE SUN, the LIGHT is the bringing back to life of all the righteous dead.

It is a card of RESURRECTION. It is  a grand, bold blaring you can’t miss it WAKE UP CALL! Gabriel as whistle-blower or the canary in the coal mine is another way of accessing this card’s meaning. 

Think of the BUGLE playing Taps to wake up soldiers. You could think of it as the Ride of the Valkyries, which reminds me of that famous scene in APOCALYPSE NOW. I love the smell of napalm in the morning. Or just simply wake up America and smell the coffee, and the stink water in Flint Michigan, and the thousands of pounds of chemicals from antidepressants and antibiotics and hormones peed out into the water which ends up recycled back into your ice-cube tray. 

The Valkyries are female messengers of the Nordic god Odin,who are  supernatural figures associated with fate, who ride into battle on their flying horses and take the souls of dead soldiers to Valhalla or Heaven. A kind of reverse energy of Judgment Day. 

This TRUMPet sound heralds  a change, a decision, something is happening here. Something big is happening. 

Donald is acting as the Trumpet sound, he is the messenger. Not necessarily the medium. 

I wish the TRUMPET was Louis Armstrong playing “It’s A Wonderful World” or is it Miles Davis playing “Bitches Brew.” – the Bitches’ Brew is in the next article about ERIS, Goddess of Discord and LILITH and the Grand Cardinal Cross with these witches involved.

Scorpio Moon, Lilith connects, Magic is afoot

This SCORPIO weekend may be one of the most powerful few days ever. The usual intense obsessive qualities will be there to be used in its highest possible sense for incredibly powerful deep, Kundalini awakening, soulful trans- formations of the Dark Feminine and the Collective Unconscious, all  hinging on LILITH’s powerful archetype and her connection to every planet now except the Sun and Moon which of course are not technically planets anyways but Luminaries. 

LILITH connects, Tara Greene.

Lilith by  Dorian Cleavenger

There are emotionally cleansing Water Trines of the Moon to Sun and NEPTUNE in the evening. A very romantic idealistic dreamy energy you could not have. It is HEAVENLY.

There is a balancing DIVE DEEP, my beloveds, into the Feminine DARK SHADOW of LILITH @ 2o degrees LIBRA and  she is STRUNG OUT and connected in a VERY unusual connection, I don’t think there is even a name for it. It is ineffable.

Lilith is connected with  seven other planets and the Nodes. Seven is the number of chakras, planets and Heavens .

Lilith is semi-sextile -30 degrees from MARS {26 degrees} in his ruling Sign of Scorpio. This is a very intensely sexual, tantric energy. These intensely sexual vibrations can be transmuted and used with intent to shape shift any situation.

Lilith is then Sextile {60 degrees aspect} to Saturn in Sagittarius at 15+ degree. This is a maturing testing and optimistic energy.

Lilith is in SQUARE {90 degree aspect} to PLUTO at 16+ degrees CAPRICORN

This is incredible worldly, on the job, your career, your long-term goals, maturing soul pressure involving LILITH in your highest worldly fame. Lilith is the unconscious suppressed DARK MOTHER Archetype, yes she symbolizes abortions, the ability that Nature has to take its own young and take any lives it wants. LILITH is the totally independent woman who answers to no man, she was and will never be owned, bought, sold, or on display. She is never sexual unless SHE wants to be. She does not need to wear sexy clothes or to tart herself up looking like a cheap whore, that is a Patriarchal view of women. She may delight herself in looking beautiful but that is because she accepts and defines her own standards of Beauty. She is NEVER defined by anything outside of herself. That is not ego, or selfish. She is a Goddess who understands the responsiblity of what being a woman entails.

Lilith is what the Patriarchy, the Plutocracy and the Collective Unconscious  has denied for so long. There is a famous parable. The hag who turns into a beautiful Princess because one of her suitors accepts her in her ugly old form and asks her what she wants? Because he respects an honors the Feminine, she transforms into a beautiful woman  and he breaks the spells and frees all woman. 

SHE, LILITH is portrayed as the feared Dark Witch, Maleficent or terrible step-mother, wicked witch of the West, the hag, crone or bitch however she is denigrated is the Force that can save our earth Mother as she is the missing half of that dual Feminine. The loving Mother, the Shekinah is her other half in the Jewish tradition. Rejecting Lilith unleashed a slew of problems in the world. Which are now potentially able to be brought into balance. 

LILITH is TRINE VENUS conjunct ATHENA in AQUARIUS @ 12  degrees and also Trine Mercury at 18+ degrees AQUARIUS. {120 degree aspects}. We can easily channel the power Goddesses, we are their voice and their life blood. 

Lilith is exactly quincunx {150 degrees} CHIRON at 20 degrees PISCES.

Lilith’s downside was never being able to compromise or be intimate, to have equal relationships and this is a HUGE turning point in her ability to listen to the Masculine who is strong enough to be vulnerable, who will lay down his arms and his ego-posturing and his domineering ways to honor the Feminine to be able to create equal relationships.

The Masculine must LAY DOWN HIS ARMS to lie in her alluring, bewitching arms to love her as she is. 

IT is ONLY then that LILITH will accept him as her lover and equal. He must be the wounded warrior, the vulnerable child, the lover and son, consort and King to HER.

Lilith is also inconjunct {150 degrees} to the SOUTH NODE at 21 degrees PISCES,

this is a huge struggle that LILITH is feeling now, which all awake women are feeling, the need to be a warrioress again, to stand up to defend her own honor. To honour our ancient Heritage that has been liwed about hidden and buried. Women have been held captives for thousands of years.

The OLD ARCHETYPES are dying and new ones are being born. 

Many years ago I went to see the famed Jungian Psychologist Marion Woodman speak at my old Alma Mater the Ontario College of Art { and Design} in Toronto. I remember she gave the audience and myself a mission statement. She said “It is the artists’s job to create the new archetypes, they are always growing, changing, being reborn and dying.” 

If you have never read her many books I urge you to do so. I wish I had my Amazon page set up again. I will do that too. 

Lilith is also opposed to URANUS in ARIES @ 18+ degrees {180 degree aspect}.

The change is happening baby. The change is gonna do you good and everyone even if they are fighting like hell against it. The Dark Feminine must burst out of her shackles to liberate the world and her own life. I wish Hilary Clinton was that woman but she is not. The only one who is independent enough to change the way the U.S. needs to be changed is Bernie Sanders. Individual women must come forward to lead the way for others now.

I pray that Lilith imbues her independent spirit into the hearts and souls of all the people so that they may wake up from their sleep of the dominator mode and see where they are now in the 21st Century and our earth is in danger. 

Last but not least, JUPITER Retrograde and the NORTH NODE are also semi-sextile to Lilith at 19 and 20 degrees of VIRGO. Virtally all of the planets are connected to LILITH now. 

This is  very High Tantric healing energy if all the 7 planets/Nodes are called on with reverence and you surrender your egos to embody the SHIVA/SHAKTI orgasmic cosmic energies of transcendence.

MAKE LOVE WITH LILITH

PLease sit in meditation this weekend. If in a conscious relationship call in Lilith and the seven planets into your chakras as you make love. This will be one of the most powerful experiences ever. If you are solo you can also meditate and call upon LILITH to embody you and you can feel the Kundalini energy rise. Many famous mystics were in a state of rapturous orgasmic Bliss all the time and they were celibate.

Inspirational Card of the Day

As Mercury goes Retrograde and we are standing at the edge of the cusp where Jupiter also jumps off the cliff to turn Retrograde on the 7th. I will pick an Inspirational card to Mirror the situation.

I have channelled and envisioning a lot the last few days.I need to simply be an open channel of the Great Attractor and the Galactic Center. Most of the planets in my natal chart points to this and these aspects are being heavily activated now for everyone.  

What I have tuned into is the CME’s coronal mass ejections affecting the electrical magnetic fields of the earth.

We are mutating.  

The Red Madonna was calling to me and angels and sound healers, art, creativity and new directions being born.

INSPIRATIONAL DAILY CARD 

5 of SWORDS

5 of swords Tarot Tara Greene

MARy EL Tarot  by Mary White 

This is a very unusual interpretation of the 5 of Swords.  The swords represent the mind, communication and would be under MERCURY’s rulership. The 5’s are always difficult, a testing period.  Usually there is some bloody mental conflict in most 5 of swords cards. 

In this card a woman holding a newborn baby is surrounded and protected by five white snowy owls whose wings surround her. The 5th card on the 5th- note that synchronicity. 

She has a Hebrew letter Vav on her chest. It is the element of Air which is the sword element. White and Air are the colors of the North on the Medicine wheel.

Who is this woman? Is she Lilith? Lilith was known as the screech owl, her most ancient name. She was considered also to be a baby stealer which is a symbol of the fact that she governs the menstrual period. She could also be ATHENA who had a wise owl who sees in all directions on her shoulder.  The owl is a predator who hunts at night and can see in the darkness. Owls are associated with death in some cultures and also dreaming. Night visioning is a metaphor for deep intuitive sensing and dreaming.

Use all of these symbols to guide you. This card feels very empowering to me.  The Goddess figure seems like a wise, wild mother, a Queen of the dreamworld, whose babe wrapped in green, the color of nature, Venus, love and growth symbolizes pure potential, and new beginnings. Stay in a place of Innocence and trust in the direction of the South, your feelings.  

Owls strike fear into their prey as they are absolutely silent in flight. Be the owl, use stealth, bring your dreams to life.

You are being protected by soft white downy angelic energy from the Nature realms. 

Blessed be

Lilith conjunct Mars in Libra, sex, transgender

BLACK MOON LILITH, the DARK GODDESS, the death bringer, the shunned dark side of the Feminine, the “other half” which Western Patriarchal culture tried to kill off and suppress is  back with a vengeance. She is not a vampire as is popular portrayed. She does not suck blood and kill people. She sucks semen from sleeping men and impregnates herself with it. The Patriarchy twisted this into her being a demoness who gives birth to and then kills 100 of her own children every day. Of course this is just a metaphor for “wet dreams” and against masturbation, which the Jews prohibit. The Egyptians, their bosses for three hundred years worshipped male masturbation. That’s where the dislike of it comes from.

Lilith is represented by Black Moon Lilith which in Astronomy is not a planet but the Moons furthest point in its orbit around the earth. The Moons orbit is elliptical and therefore its path around the Earth each month has two distinct points. One point in the orbit is the closest distance to earth, called the Perigee and the furthest point in the orbit, called the Apogee. Some Astrologers only work with the True, oscillating Lilith point or the  “mean Lilith” which is a balance point. There is also an Asteroid named Lilith to further complicate matters. 

Historically one treatise on Lilith comes from the Left emanation,  mystical writing of which predates the Zohar a book of Jewish mysticism. It  states that Samael {Satan or Lucifer whose name means the Light Bringer} and Lilith, who must actually be VENUS as Venus Lucifer when she is in her Morning Star aspect, are in the shape of an androgynous  being, double-faced, born out of the emanation of God, and corresponding in the spiritual realm to Adam and Eve, who were likewise born as a hermaphrodite “were like the image of Above” of an androgynous deity.

Lilith, Tara Greene, Astrologer

Lilith (1892) by John Collier

Black Moon Lilith {Mean Node} will be in Libra from August 252015 to May 212016 

Lilith conjuncts Mars exact  December 1st at 10+ degrees of Libra. 

Lilith was the first woman and her conjunction to Mars in Libra may bring out men’s fear of women being equal. But to me it is a sense of JUSTICE in the Tarot #8. 

Lilith the  Dark Goddess deserves to have her rightful place reinstated to balance out the imbalance in women’s roles. Men have lived out of balance in rigid roles as well. 

This is a strong marker of Equality of the sexes. New Canadian Prime Minster Justin Trudeau immediately created his Liberal cabinet of half men and half women. “Because it’s 2015” he said. 

This is very apt aspect with the issues of transgender, gender neutrality and fluid sexuality being Hot martial topics.

 Lilith is the stronger here as Mars is in Venus’ sign and weak. Many LGB are not accepting transgenders posing as women most famously because of Caitlyn Jenner being given womanly status.Many feminists are also rejecting transgender male to females as being accepted as women or lesbians.

“Cousin Fifi” by Napoleon Brousseau 1999 Oil on canvas Size: 84 H x 67 W x 2 in
Exhibited at the Angell Gallery Toronto, The Fifinochio Chronicles 1999

This is a very political debate and for me it is totally based on the pharmaceutical industry crating and controlling the issue and is therefore another version of the status quo, another Patriarchal Frankenstein monster, creating a better woman from a man. My husband artist Napoleon Brousseau is writing a book about this. This debate will go on for a long time. I respect people feeling like they may feel like they were born in the wrong body but being androgynous, which is originally the way we were created ,is a perfect thing in itself.  It is the symbol of wholeness.

Be both sexes in one,  be yourself don’t change anything. Transgender in its present status furthers stereotypes about men and women. 

We are all seeking that magical equal relationship. This is a very powerful potent aspect of that. 

If you have planets with in 5 -15 degrees of Libra this aspect may help you to take more action to balance both your male and female sides. All Cardinal signs at those degrees Aries, Cancer, Capricorn which is the Cardinal cross degrees are also ignited by this aspect. 

Many strong women have Lilith Mars aspects in their astrology charts. 

Lilith stays 9 months in one sign correlating to the Moon and gestation.

MERCURY in Cancer trines SATURN Retrograde in Scorpio.  

All trines are good but you gotta work them. An excellent aspect stimulating the herald and messenger into emotionally sensitive serious mature emotional conversations and being able to forge new neural pathways.

Moon squares Mars in Cancer late in the day/ July  23 EDT

LEO is the Card of STRENGTH in the TAROT #11/#8 

Leo Strength Astrology Tara Greene

 

Haindl Tarot Strength 

The card of STRENGTH traditionally shows a woman holding the  jaws of a lion open. She has an INFINITY symbol hovering over her head symbolizing enlightenment. There are thousands of variations on this card’s symbolism. Sometimes the card is numbered #8 or #11. Too complicated to get into now.

The Haindl Tarot shows a naked woman controlling the serpent Kundalini energy. She is very Lilith like in this card.

The Card symbolizes the will over the beastial, lower, animal nature, instinct, greed, survival, vanity, jealousy, and everything which LOWERS one’s consciousness.

That ability of the Feminine- the Soul, which is LOVE to control the lower animal nature is a mind/heart/spirit focus which is called KUNDALINI energy.  Passion/heat.

The highest SOLAR consciousness is available to us at this time. The  SOLAR LOGOS as Theososphist Alice Bailey and Rudolph Steiner referred to it, is the highest Light Master teachings available, the same as Buddha, Christ’s etc.

The Real Moves like Jagger by Maroon V  

What makes Iggy Pop? stars Astrology

Happy Birthday to IGGY POP April 21 he is 68 years old. The acknowledged Grandfather of  punk, the outrageous unpredictable usually shirtless Iggy led the way for many others to follow. Often imitated there is only one IGGY, never mind Iggy Azalea. 

young man iggy pop music Tara Greene astrology

Born James Newell Osterberg Jr. his parents were entirely supportive of him as a young teen. He started out as a drummer with a blues band called The Prime Movers where he got his stage name Iggy. Co-bandmate Michael Erlewine is a prolific genius who created  Matrix Astrology Software the first computerized astrology software in the world in 1977.  

IGGY and MC5: Punk starts here in Detroit City in 1964

They played louder and harder than anyone else and no one wanted to sign them. Kick out the Jams was their first live album.  Iggy became known for his notoriously wild stage act- he originated stage diving. He was inspired by Jim Morrison of the Doors stage presence.

Iggy  wore a maternity dress, white face and aluminum Afro wig for the very first Stooges concert. They were signed by Elektra Records in 1968. Iggy had a worsening heroin addiction at this time. In 1971 he met David Bowie at Max’s Kansas City in New York and Bowie produced Raw Power in 1973. In 1976 Bowie took Iggy along on his Station to Station Tour. 

In 1977 both Bowie and Iggy relocated to West Berlin to kick their drug addictions. Bowie helped him write and produce The Idiot and Lust for Life. They co-wrote China Girl, Tonight and Sister Midnight which Bowie covered himself later.

In 1980 Iggy published an autobiography called I Need More with a forward by Andy Warhol who had  met Iggy when he was still Jim at the Ann Arbor Film Festival in 1966. “I don’t know why he hasn’t made it really big,” wrote the one Pop artist about the other. “He is so good.”

In 1983 Bowie recorded China Girl which helped Iggy’s fortunes as he received royalties. With this support he took three years off to finally overcome his heroin addiction. Then he became a shaman, once he was the wounded healer.

In 1984 he did the title song to the film Repo Man. In 1985 one of his biggest hits Lust For Life was in the popular movie Desperately Seeking Susan with Madonna. He contributed his voice along with Lou Reed in 1985 for an animated film. In 1987 Iggy sung on a ground breaking super artsy video by Japanese composer Ryuichi Sakamoto which won MTV video awards-see below.

Iggy has recorded 16 solo albums to date and still continues to perform live and record. He appeared as a character in the video game Lego Rock Band singing The Passenger and his voice is the tutor. Pop also acts and has appeared in 16 movies including one of my favorites, Jim Jarmusch’s 1995 Dead Man with Johnny Depp and Robert Mitchum with an incredible sound track by Neil Young. 

On April 7, 2011, at age 63, Pop performed “Real Wild Child” on the 10th season of American Idol. The L.A. Times music blog described Pop as being “still magnetic, still disturbing. ” after all these years. 

Lets check out Iggy’ s chart for all of those elements.

po;p star Astrology Tara Greene

From Iggy’s life description you might expect some intense Scorpio, Aries, Leo, Pisces.

Iggy is a solid, earthy, sensuous, body conscious Venusian double Taurus with the Sun and Moon in the 10th house of fame- his parents support of his creativity is in this aspect.

The luninaries are squaring SATURN IN LEO on his 29th degree Cancer Ascendant and also square his Pluto in Leo in the 1st.  Iggy is so very emotional, sensitive and Feminine and Saturn and Pluto give Iggy presence, over the top entertaining mannerism and staying power. Otherwise he would have O.D.’s long ago. He is a trouper, a fighter, a leader,burning to expose his soul in the raw.

Sun and Moon are also opposite Chiron in Scorpio in his 4th house. Iggy is an old soul, who transforms himself, his passion, his fascination with danger, the dark, the taboo, heroin, death and life through his creative Taurus side. This is a shamanic healer aspect.

Iggy has a fearless Mercury MARS ruler of Aries conjunction right on his Mid-Heaven. Iggy is famous for LUST FOR LIFE one of his most successful songs, exemplified in that aspect.That Mercury Mars is opposite NEPTUNE in Libra also right on his I.C. or the roots of his being. Neptune rules spirituality, creativity and addictions. This is the long battle that Iggy fought and also what fuels his creativity, 

JUPITER is in SCORPIO in the 5th house of creativity, performers, love affairs and again that hunger for living larger than life and death, rebirth. Jupiter is in a out of sign Trine with Saturn in Leo. This is a lucky saving angel on Iggy’s shoulders.

IGGY’s South Node at 2 degrees of Sagittarius is also in the 5th house. He has been a philosopher, a teacher, a wanderer, a gypsy, an inspirer, a performer before, perhaps  a magician. I feel he had success before. His North Node is in GEMINI in the 11th house indicated his highest goal is to be the revolutionary, rule breaker, forger, freedom fighter, the one who collaborates with his tribe. 

Uranus in Gemini in the 11th indicate Iggy is a very unique individual and a dualistic minded person. He has a very strong persona, he is a quick change twin-sexed man. He has always cross-dressed and said he did so because there is no shame in dressing like a woman because there is no shame in being a woman. He is a shaman in the ancient sense of the word. 

Iggy has Lilith conjunct Juno in Capricorn squaring his Mars and Mercury. This makes him a champion of women. 

Iggy  is a true original artist who has been faithful to himself all along. This is a rare precious commodity in this world these days.  I admire IGGY for staying true to his heart and soul for being so  OUT THERE and for surviving. In this youth worshipping culture it is important to honor the real survivors. Lesser artists would have abandoned their oevre’s long ago. Thanks Iggy for being you.

Lust for life- Iggy Pop 

RISKY feat. Iggy Pop  

 

 

super rich Astrology, Venus Trine Pluto

Lilith original woman Art Napoleon Brousseau

Lilith and nagas painting by Napoleon Brousseau

March 30 get ready as VENUS in TAURUS will TRINE PLUTO in Capricorn at 15+ degrees

 

This is a super rich high calorie powerful and positive earth trine with great depth, richness, power and sensuality.

Venus rules Taurus so she is in her earthiest sensual most beautiful paradise in TAURUS. She is the real goods, the hands on physical earthly pleasures. The beauty of women with natural breasts and no implants. The beauty of the natural world, the virgin earth untouched by man. The beauty of raw materials, money, luxury, art, honey, flowers. The beauty in  all relationships, the feminine spirit or essence in everything. 

Venus symbolizes all women, each and every one of them, as well as all forms of beauty-

can you see beauty

“even when it is not pretty
every day.
And if you can source your own life
from its presence.” – Oriah Mountain Dreamer from The Invitation *

PLUTO is the Lord of the depths, Lord of death, of the invisible world of the shades as the ancients referred to ghosts. The word HADES is implicit in the word shades. Not blinds or blinders but the world where the blinders of life and limited consciousness are removed. Pluto’s realm is very much alive as the dead were felt to live forever mythicaly and we instinctively know that in our ancient archetypal imaginations and psyches.

Most myths about Pluto and Persephone say that Pluto abducted or raped her to his realm. Some say the older interpretation was that Persephone went voluntarily to Pluto’s underworld. It is part of her initiation into womanhood. Her encounter with Pluto symbolizes her menstrual cycle and her sexual initiation into womenhood.  Venus symbolizes Persephone/Kore her Greek name.

 

PLUTO’s name means RICHES. The richness of the immortal world, the eternal world, soul riches. This is also the imaginal, archetypal realm, the liminal, in-between, twilight worlds. These areas partake of our mourning over those we loved and lost who have passed from this material world. It’s the realm of memory, poetry and bards and our ancestors who provide guidance from beyond. 

Pluto as the ruler of SCORPIO governs sexuality, desire, danger, obsession, power, control, secrets. Scorpio is associated with snakes and snake wisdom, instinctual, grounded; and the shedding and recycling of their skins suggesting immortal life. Snakes also symbolize menstruating women, who monthly bleed and do not die.

Put these two planets/gods and Goddesses together in a positive earth trine and this is a great opportunity for women, artists, the creative spirit, and all of our soul’s riches to soar and support each other. 

Earth Trines ae good for VIRGO.

From Pluto there is a sextile to both Pisces with Chiron nearby at 18 degree, and another sextile to Scorpio at 15 degrees-beneficial. From VENUS a sextile to 15 degrees of Cancer and another one back to Pisces at 15 degrees which is the mid-point the hottest degree. It is also beneficial for 15 degrees of Virgo.If you have planets here definitely dig up your inner treasures and feel your riches and beauty. 

MEDITATE on this positive trine.

it will happen in the middle of the night in PDT and EDT.

Think about riches, your inner, ineffable ones. The beauty of all of you, your “flaws” your scars, they are all beautiful. Ponder the qualities that you will take with you to the afterlife when you die. Cultivate inner beauty which no one can ever rape or take from you.

Think about VENUS, the ancient image of woman, the feminine and her psychological archetypal wealth which each of you carry within. She is your instincts, your ability to love and relate, your longing for beauty, peace and proportion. 

Honour beauty by creating art and making love.”ALL ACTS OF LOVE AND BEAUTY ARE MY WORSHIP”- The Goddess

I think about the most ancient feminine archetype of LILITH who I am very close to and fond of. She symbolizes the shadow feminine who is very like our fear of Pluto, death, depth psychology, our own shadow parts. James Hillman’s works are a great resource of Pluto depth archetypes.

We need to love our shadows,to extract the riches there.  The primal archetype of Lilith, her beauty in individual strength, in trusting her instincts. Snakes, her symbol represent primal instincts.

Draw upon your instincts at this time and ask to be blessed with the knowledge of both beauty and the taboo around beauty. Bless your own beauty in all its forms and your inner wealth. This will multiply your wealth mentality and attract more wealth back to you.

Pluto is the Plutocracy the 1% that own most of the wealth on this planet. Call upon the Goddesses, the Divine Feminine, Demeter, Persephone’s mother, Kali, Durga,Lilith,the Black Madonna to bring balance to the earth and restore natural beauty and harmony so that we may all enjoy the earth’s riches in our lives. 

Knowledge of Lilith is really imperative for women and men doing their inner psychological and spiritual work.  Invite her archetype to come into your dreams for dream healing. She is in every Astrology chart.  

Lilith & Naga.

I adore this beautiful little jewel of a painting of Lilith the original woman with three snakes or nagas. Lilith was the snake in the Tree of Knowledge informing Eve correctly to eat the apple of Knowledge which made humans  conscious, this was the first act of free will.

There is also video of the painting being created by Napoleon Brousseau.

There will be prints available on SAATCHI as of April 2 to feed your Venus Pluto with

Radical Leo Full Moon Grand Fire Trine Roar

Yes we need some fiery heat up here in the Northern Hemisphere. Katy Perry came in riding a Tiger at the Super Bowl. Leo is the sign of the Heart, of creativity and giving love.

Feb 3rd Full Moon will definitely give Leonine heat and star power.

Sun/Moon are positioned at the 15th degree, the most powerful with Jupiter cozying up to the Moon in Leo. Moon dance time.

The Sun is in Aquarius which is Ruled by planet Uranus.  This is a call for a revolution for higher consciousness, co-operation, new inventions and radically moving from hierarchies which are non-inclusive.  Aquarius is the Sign of Freedom, liberation, of co-creation. We can feel very hopeful on this Full Moon.

Aquarius is the  symbol of the STAR #17 in the Tarot.

the Star Tarot #17 Tara Greene

The Star is the symbol of Hope. Literally of wishing on a star. Do make mighty heart-felt wishes at the Full Moon on Feb 3 @ 3:08 pm PST/ 6:08 pm EST/ 11:08 pm GMT

The Leo Moon is always the star of the show. Leo is the sign of the child, leadership, playfulness and the arts.

TRIPLY PASISONATE

Grand Fire Trine of Uranus in Aries to the Moon and Jupiter conjunct in Leo to ASTEROID ATHENA helps us to have courage, daring, passion, wisdom. Leo is the sign of the Heart and the will and creative self-expression.  Can we be warriors of the heart? You may be feeling your heart burning you and your beloved up.

Athena was a warrior Goddess in Ancient Greece and the city of Athens was built to honor her. She was originally worshipped as a warrior Goddess in her own right. She became patriarchalized as a father’s daughter, born fully armored from Zeus’s head. Athena’s symbol is an owl, she sees in the dark.

NEPTUNE and VENUS still in a beautiful soul unification from Feb. 1 are being squared by Saturn the Old Devil in Sagittarius. Saturn helps us to bring down the truth of cosmic higher law. We can be empathic and just-but there will be tests.

Lilith at 7 degrees Virgo is opposite Venus & Neptune. This is a beautiful balance of the Light and the Dark Goddess energies, helping us to heal the split in women, love and sexuality. All of the patriarchal religions fear, repress and split the power of the Dark Feminine.The goddess energies of love, compassion and relationship to all our relations is what we need now to survive.

Mercury is still Retrograde till the 11th of FebruaryWe are still rethinking the revolutionary plans.

Uranus is conjunct to the South Node in Aries and square to Pluto in Capricorn. We need to release the past to make way for new balanced North Node relationships in Libra.

Chiron and Mars are conjunct in Pisces bringing down cosmic spiritual healing to the Masculine warrior God. The two are in quincunx to the Moon and Jupiter retrograde in Leo. The tricky part is staying out of your ego of course.  

Goddess asteroid JUNO at 8 degrees Leo is also Fire Trining Saturn the karmic teacher and the South Node.

Juno symbolizes feminine Genius, as opposed to a more masculine intellectual genius. Women intuitively understand what this means. Her symbol, an 8 armed asterisk tops a cross of matter. To me Juno’s symbol is a magic wand.

 

At the Full Moon meditate on what has been fulfilled. This is definitelya  magically empowering time. You are called to join with all other souls to rise and shine the Light of their Hearts as beacons to the world. Open your heart to love, to creativity, offer it up, share generously.

Alchemy of Marriage, Astrology by Tara Greene

The ALCHEMICAL WEDDING, As Above, So Below

A very important aspect forms January 19/20 which symbolizes one of the main goals in human life, in spiritual growth and transformation, the Alchemical Marriage.  We are all seeking our divine other-half, the Beloved, our soul mate.  The Sacred Marriage within means to be whole, complete in oneself, as we are originally and to love fully.

You are all invited to participate in the Wedding party. Everyone gets to catch the bridal bouquet.

wedding invitation tara greene

Neptune, ruler of spirituality, dreams, Oneness, Bliss, the Unconscious, completion and Hollywood blesses this rare event. Whether it is the glamour of Hollywood stars we are watching or planets, they both carry symbolic, synchronistic, archetypal messages. Hollywood and its films and movie stars are often very prophetic messengers perhaps unconsciously. They are playing out archetypal roles.

The old Hermetic maxim is “As above, so below.”  And as without- outside, so within. Everything is a mirror. George Clooney recently announced to his new wife Amal when accepting his award for lifetime achievement “I don’t know what kind of alchemy brought us together, I am so proud to be your husband.”  A prophetic speech.

What is this Alchemy?

The transformation which turns Saturn which rules lead, trials, obstacles, negativity, karma, into Gold- the Sun or the Light, the Source itself. This process describes how we are to meet the challenges and difficulties in life. It is a complex process of spiritual, psychological, even physical, mixing and burning away of various elements; like Mercury, planet of communications, and analysis, into the Source/Light/gold. All of the symbols/metals/planets together form this Alchemical Marriage. When planets combine their energies in conjunctions, oppositions and squares this is also a type of Alchemy.

The powerful “as above” of this Alchemical wedding is a conjunction, which literally means sexual union between Mars and Neptune in Pisces which is exact January 19 @ 4:08 pm PDT/ 7:08 pm EDT/Jan. 20 @ 12:08 am UT.

Mars, is sexuality, passion, desire, fear, defenses, raw masculine life giving energy. The warrior God lays down his arms when he is joined to Neptune, the God of the Oceans. Mars is being baptized by Neptune’s Holy waters of spirituality, Oneness, Bliss, compassion and forgiveness. Pisces, the last sign symbolizes endings. This symbolizes a martial purification and cleansing from bloodshed in war. It is also a spiritual initiation of the masculine towards spirituality and the Feminine.

Who is the Bride?

LILITH. Lilith is in Virgo, opposite Mars and Neptune which are in an exact conjunction in Pisces at 5 degrees 55 minutes. Oppositions symbolize a tense relationship, where we must find a balancing point in order to have peace.

Lilith, symbolizes the original woman, the ancient Archetype of the Goddess who existed before Eve. She is a Virgin Goddess, in the original sense, whole, complete unto herself, and she answers to no man. She was worshipped world-wide by hundreds of names since the beginning of time. 

The Patriarchal {Saturn} religions have sought to destroy her worship and to split man from Nature to dominating the earth, which they have done for the last 5,000 years. Lilith is beautiful, sexual, fertile and powerful. She is also the projected {Neptune] fear- {Saturn} of men onto women’s’ sexuality and power

The original Genesis Biblical story of Lilith’s refusal to be dominated sexually be Adam in the Garden of Eden is the original archetype of this split.  If women {Lilith} refuse to participate in man’s power games, then there are no relationships or children and no life continues. Lilith symbolizes man’s own vulnerability and fear of being rejected, abandoned, and unloved, which has caused him to dominate and control women. The women have the power, and the men know that. This story also symbolizes where the healing needs to take place, through the sacred alchemy of marriage. The masculine energy needs to learn to surrender and to trust the Feminine in order for life to flourish on all levels, psychologically, spiritually and practically.

Lilith, in early Virgo, is an earthy, practical, workaholic. She helps us to be conscious of our bodies, of the earth, of boundaries, and limitation of what we harvest.  Lilith also symbolizes the duality of sex, {Mars} and death, {Saturn.} The French call orgasm “the little death.” For true intimacy, both egos must die to become one, {Neptune}. 

Saturn in Sagittarius, symbolizes the Father, Patriarchy, the LEAD in the Alchemy, that “old tyme religion.” Father time, Lord of Karma is also involved in the alchemy in a waning square to Neptune but still in the marriage party. Someone’s got to give the bride away of course.

This planetary alignment signifies a Masculine surrender, a laying down of arms and ego games, a return to the Goddess, to worshipping the earth. Mars is transformed into the Positive Masculine, a Knight in shining armor, protecting the Holy Grail, the Feminine, and his own feeling intuitive function. This is the image of the transformed new Aeon masculine. Lilith also learns to compromise, and give man another chance to respect her in her beauty power and glory. This is the alchemy.

And there is more. Venus, Goddess of women, is in revolutionary, freedom loving form at 19 degrees + of Aquarius, the sign of higher consciousness, opposite Jupiter in Leo Retrograde. Jupiter in Leo symbolizes the Sun King. Venus in Aquarius, is a revolutionary new Feminine in relationship to the golden, optimistic, creative, self- expressive Masculine, the heart of power with Jupiter in Leo. The “golden crown” of power is worn by he who has the biggest heart, who gives away the most. Jupiter is ancient ruler of Pisces. Mercury, the “ring bearer” is also close by to Venus as he has been for the last few weeks.

MARS and NEPTUNE marrying Lilith in Virgo with Saturn in square dissolves the old projections {Neptune {and fears- {Saturn}, of Lilith, of women. This planetary alignment signifies a Masculine surrender, a laying down of arms and ego games, a return to the Goddess, to worshipping the earth.

Mars is transformed into the Positive Masculine, a Knight in shining armor, protecting the Holy Grail, the Feminine, and his own feeling intuitive function. This is the image of the transformed new Aeon masculine.  We need positive Masculine energy to help save the environment, to respect women, to live in balance. Lilith also learns from Neptune to compromise, to surrender and give man another chance to respect her in her beauty power and glory. We are all originally one whole and complete.

It is a mystical transformation. Carl Jung said that there are only two emotions. Love and Fear. All the planets are involved which represent these symbols. Only when we love and accept and surrender our fear can we meet the Beloved within and achieve the sacred Marriage. .

Bring down this powerful cosmic symbol into our consciousness so that we can be transformed by marrying the opposing forces of Love and War of Martial desire and Fear within. Only when we experience this Alchemical change can we become unified, balanced, loving. Then we are the Gold, the Source and we can we see all others as the Beloved as well.

This Sacred Marriage, the Beloved within, is what we are all seeking. The great Persian poet Rumi wrote thousands of poems devoted to the Beloved.

 “When you find yourself with the Beloved, embracing for one breath,

In that moment you will find your true destiny.

Alas, don’t spoil this precious moment

Moments like this are very, very rare. – Rumi

This is a truly wonderful and very positive omen and expression of divine love.
