Venus in Leo, Heart of Gold,Retrograde alert!

Venus the Goddess of Love, Beauty, Relationships and values enters the Royal Sign of Leo June 5  until July 18 where we will be feeling Queenly courageous and passionate in our hearts’ expression.

Venus will turn Retrograde July 25 at ZERO+ degrees Virgo and regresses back into LEO until September 6. Venus turns direct at 14 degrees 23 minutes of Leo and takes until October 9 to bypass Zero degrees Virgo again.  That’s 10 weeks spent standing in the shadows of love.

Venus enters her pre-shadow phase on June 21 the Summer Solstice which is highly significant. 

VENUS will rendezvous with the SUN/APOLLO at 22 degrees LEO on August 15 which is one of the highlights of the year energetically. My wedding Anniversary is on the 17th. 

While Venus is Retrograde for 44 days -also a significant Master number, we will re-immerse ourselves in old love dramas, heart entanglements, rewind our hearts, unbind our hearts, release the courage which we may have held back, relinquish the drama, require respect for women’s power and much more. 

Do check out where those degrees are in your astrology charts now.

This is a great time to take stock of where your creativity is, how open your heart is, let your inner child come out and play.

Leo ruled stuff, big ego’s and power struggles will get even more raw, inflamed, hot and passionate, can be big time negative dramas.

Women have long been linked with Lions in mythology. The SPHINX is a half woman half lioness wonder of the world. Ancient Goddesses were depicted as being half lioness in Babylon.

EGyptian Goddess Tara Greene


Sekhmet (Sakhmet) is one of the oldest known Egyptian deities. Her name is derived from the Egyptian word “Sekhem” (which means “power” or “might”) often translated as “She who is Powerful”. She is depicted as a lion-headed woman, sometimes with the addition of a sun disc on her head. Her seated statues show her holding the ankh of life, but when she is shown striding or standing she usually holds a sceptre formed from papyrus. 

RHEA was the Titan mother of the gods, a goddess of female fertility, motherhood, and generation. Her name means “flow” and “ease.” As the wife of Kronos/Saturn  (Time), she represented the eternal flow of time and generations ; as the great Mother (Meter Megale), the “flow” was menstrual blood, birth waters, and milk. She was also a goddess of comfort and ease. She is closely connected to Cybele, the Anatolian mother Goddess, They were both depicted as matronly women, usually wearing a turret crown, and attended by lions. 

Venus in Leo goes for the gold, GOLD and SILVER markets and all precious metals usually rise when Planets are in Leo.

Downside of Venus in LEO, vanity, greed, competition, showing off, jealousy, possessiveness, you know…

Venus in Leo is everything YOUR HEART DESIRES, you want it, you know how to seduce to get it.

Feb 3/4 The LEO Full Moon has conjunct JUPITER @ 9:31 pm PST

 on Feb 4 @ 12:31 am EST then is Void of course all day until 9:46 pm PST/ Feb 5 @ 12:46 am EST.

That’s a whole day to reflect post Full Moon.

Moon Jupiter in LEO is emotional strength, will power. Leo is also pride, anger, courage and Jupiter expands everything he touches. This produces inflamed passion of both types, it can be positive heart opening and furiously enraged in tooth and claw, berzerker energy.

Mars also quincunx to Jupiter Feb 4 indicates irritated energies, frustration and scapegoating.

We are Retrograding over old feuds with Jupiter still Retrograde. For Muslim terrorists this is an 800 year old revenge.  The savage burning alive of  captured Jordanian pilot Muath al-Kaseasbeh shows the depths of barbarism being dragged out onto the worlds stage. This story is coming out now though he as killed on January 3. Jordan will retaliate.

Inspirational Card of the day 


STRENGTH LEO Astrology Tara Greene


The card shows a Woman. Women are always symbols of the Psyche/ Soul. She is closing the jaws of the hungry savage lion. She controls the primal animal instincts for sex, blood, food. 

The key is how do we respond to such barbarism?  An eye for an eye when we are dealing with extreme terrorists is all they will understand. We cannot appear weak against this kind of terrorism.

On a personal level, these questions are pertinent as Jupiter will remain in Leo until August 11.

This is the SPIRIT, The Force of FIRE 

spiritu of fire Astrology Tara Greene

available to all of us, and amplified by Saturn in Sagittarius and Uranus in Aries.

In Hebrew you would call it the Esh Kadosh

Where are my strengths?

What does my heart and soul tell me to do?

How can I express all that I hold in my heart without fear? 

What parts of myself do I need to control to become a leader, a star, a creative force? 

Remember The Force is always within you.

Jupiter’s critical lessons Astrology by Tara Greene

I had a great day yesterday. Everything is finer under an Upbeat optimistic Sagittarius Moon. Don’t you agree?

It’s my monthly LUNAR RETURN. It may be yours if you were born with the Moon in Sagittarius. Yes boys get them too.  No need to be shy.

Each month the Moon travels through all 12 signs. Once each month YOU get to experience the Moon conjunct to where it was when you were born. That’s called your Lunar Return and it’s like a MOOD RING, a monthly chart from which you can calculate your personal emotional moods from.

It’s an emotional RESET button from birth. It brings up Unconscious emotional ties between you and your mother, positive or negative. That’s a very powerful point, one which holds many deep feelings which cannot been spoken about, which unconsciously may come up in your dreams,your fears, in reactions in your moods and others. It affects safety needs, security, cuddling, abandonment and intimacy.

You should know about this and can calculate when in each month your LUNAR return is. For women this may also unconsciously connect you to when you get your period. An interesting thing to track.

Jupiter is making his last hurrah through CANCER being at that 29th “critical degree” now- for another 7 days.  That degree of any sign is the pivotal point where the lessons must be learned and integrated before the next step can be taken. Empty the cache before moving on.

Jupiter as THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE was symbolically wearing Tarot Trump # 7 The CHARIOT all last year. The sign of CANCER, emotions, home, security, the Moon’s natural place, nurturing, nourishment, MOM.VERY FEMININE.  

In DIVINE TIMING, or synchronicity, 2014 reduces to a Number 7 year in Numerology as well.

Think back on what gifts and lessons JUPITER, the Master TEACHER,  bestowed upon your family, home, relationships, travelling, education, the Law, philosophy, over this past year.  Jupiter is considered to be the GREAT BENEFACTOR, bringing expansion, but sometimes Jupiter is too much of a good thing, over optimistic, a risk taker and can cause much losses, not to mention pile on the pounds.

What aspects did Jupiter bestow upon you? 

AS JUPITER moves in to LEO we are in these energies:

JULY 16  Jupiter as THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE will be unbuckling the CHARIOT’S safety belt leaving the protective nurturing, security, home and emotional VICTORY behind him as he PROUDLY enters LEO and morphs the LION, symbol of the SPHYNX, the 5th sign, FIXED FIRE. Jupiter may riddle you with those famous questions.

Jupiter was exalted in Cancer but does well in Masculine Fire.


Way more energy, PIZAZZ, lots of PARTYING, loud showing off, excess, performances, BIG DRAMAS, more heart attacks, rising gold prices, FERTILE ROYALTY, big weddings, huge inflated EGO’s, childlike playfulness, heart centered kindness, VANITY, the color PURPLE, becoming one with the animals, protection for LIONS, especially rare white ones, courage, leadership, leading from the HEART, the creative inner child, Higher law, children’s rights protected, higher education expansion, family loyalty, generosity, lots of children focussed entertainment and will power.

Trump # 11 symbolizing STRENGTH is called LUST in the THOTH TAROT.

Moon’s in Sagittarius all day July 10 and enters Capricorn 8:24 pm
