Belgium attacks, astrology, eclipses

I am sending prayers for those who were killed in the Daesh Islamic Terrorists bombing in Brussels March 22. Two suicide bombs went off, the first at Brussels Airport at 8:00 am local time and another at 9:19 am at the Maelbeek subway station. At least 30 are thought to be dead with hundreds of injured.  This comes only four days after Salah Abdeslam, one of the Paris bombers, was arrested in Brussels. ISIS took responsibility for the attacks and warned of more for any country that is fighting against them. 

Belgium,Astrology, Tara Greene

I wanted to check on the astrology chart of Brussels, Belgium to see how the transiting planets are affecting the city. Remember we are in the middle of two eclipses, the Solar on March 8 at 18+ degrees PISCES and the March 23 Lunar eclipse at 2 degrees Libra these events portend major historical events.   

SOLAR ECLIPSE CYCLES, the CRUSADES then and now

The Solar eclipse on March 8 2016 was part of SAROS cycle #130 which began on August 20, 1096. March 8th was the 52nd eclipse in that cycle.  I wrote previously about how very literally the rise of Islamic Terrorism is because of the original Crusades in Jerusalem. When did the first Crusade begin to take back Jerusalem from the Muslims? In 1096.  Daech fighters referto Belgium and all Western countries as the Crusader Nations.

On a world astr0-map for the Lunar Eclipse March 23, at 3 degrees Libra/Aries sits on the MC/IC axis of Brussels with Mercury there as well indicating this is a world-wide news story. 

The City of Brussels was founded on June 10, 1229 @ 12:01 pm Julian calendar.  What else happened historically in 1229? The 6th Crusade against the Muslims, Holy Roman Emperor Frederik II made a deal with the Muslim King. The Christians got back some cities, but the Muslims retained control of Jerusalem and the Dome of the Rock and Jews were not allows to live in Jerusalem again. You know what they say about history? 

The chart of the founding of Belgium and the first terrorist bombing at the airport March 22 2016 @ 8:00 am local Brussels time. Belgium was formed on  October 4, 1830 @ 1:53 pm in Brussels, chart not shown.

Belgium, Terrorists, Tara Greene, astrology

We know that Belgium has become a hotbed for Daesh terrorists. Historically Brussels is much connected to the very beginning of the  Christian Crusades against the Muslims who obviously  have long memories and hold grudges for 900 years. 

The Chart for March 22 attacks shows transiting PLUTO, Lord of DEATH, the Underworld, and all underground locations like subways, undercover operations, obsession, power, control and stealth, at 17 degrees CAPRICORN exactly conjunct to Brussels natal MOON, its people, its moods, its emotional and security needs in its own 4th house. This is the most natural place for the Moon to be.

PLUTO symbolizes the Collective Unconscious, the shadow, fear, projections. The Moon holds the personal emotional memories throughout the motherlines. Belgians are reserved, conservative, very close to their roots and traditions and are naturally ‘dry’ but nurturing and very private about their feelings. Pluto’s presence here symbolizes an undercover stealth deeply rooted in Brussels fabric. A kind of cancer that has been allowed to spread. 

Pluto is itself on the MC or world fame position of the bombing chart. PLUTO is also in Square to transiting URANUS  in ARIES the planet of explosions, chaos, revolutionaries of all types and exactly on Brussels Part of Fortune. The Part of Fortune is the “pot of gold” at the end of the Rainbow. In a sense it can also be seen as a hair-trigger in a rifle as it combines the Sun, Moon and Ascendant of a person, place or event. Uranus is on the cusp of the 8th house of death and conjunct to Asteroid EUROPA which was a famous Bull, but to me, signifies the EU headquarters which were  near the subway station’s bombing. This event may be a tipping point in the fight against Daesh and Muslims entering Europe.  The country will get Bullish about throwing out all terrorist suspects. Pluto is also opposite Brussels Mercury in CANCER. Everyone feels the pain. 

The March 8th Total Solar eclipse at 18+ PISCES was opposite to Brussels Natal PLUTO at 19 degrees VIRGO in its 12th house of secret enemies, opposing its Natal Saturn at 12+ degrees PISCES and squaring Brussels Sun at 25 degrees GEMINI. Transiting Jupiter and the North Node was also conjunct to its Natal PLUTO. This was being planned in advanced. This event is a significant game changer and ups the ante in the fight against Terrorism in Europe.There is the possibility of a very fascist political and a war situation beginning in Europe which could start a Third World War. 

LILITH and ERIS {not shown on the chart} are opposite each other. ERIS at 22 degrees ARIES , the Goddess of DISCORD is conjunct to Transiting URANUS at 19+ degrees ARIES which is square to Brussel’s natal MOON. This is hitting them at home,literally. and is the hotbed of discord. 

Trasiting SATURN in SAGITTARIUS @ 16 degrees EXACTLY squares JUPITER in VIRGO March 23. 

Transiting JUPITER in VIRGO is conjunct the MOON and the North Node at 21 degrees, which is opposite to CHIRON the WOUNDED HEALER conjunct to the SOUTH NODE and CERES, indicating the past, having to deal with religion and the motherland, nurturing and the harvest. What have we harvested? The Nodal positions affect the world in long term cycles. 

Jupiter, Moon, North Node is conjunct to Brussels natal PLUTO which is in its own 12th house of “secret enemies “karma, self-undoing. Jupiter expands whatever it touches. Pluto is nuclear power and the Nuclear power stations were carefully guarded during this time.Danger of nuclear weapons in all of this. 

SATURN, LORD of DEATH, Karma, trials, limitations, obstacles, is in SAGITTARIUS, sign of foreigners, immigrants, religious fanatics, travelling and airports, about to turn RETROGRADE March 25, the planet is very powerful, plodding very slowly. Saturn in Sagittarius also symbolizes governments, laws, restrictions on religious freedoms is squaring Brussels natal Saturn in PISCES at 12 degrees. Saturn in Pisces is about karma over religions  freedom, the history.

 NEPTUNE and VENUS are also transiting Brussels natal Saturn indicating, illusions, delusions,  deception. There may be some very strong insider government cover-ups. Or just plain sloppy Intelligence. Transiting Neptune on Saturn indicates the difficulty in rooting out the perpetrators. There will be new strict, Saturn like limitations in every walk of life, and limiting of religious freedom for Muslims. It is a Holy War indeed as Pisces is the sign of spirituality and Saturn is “SATAN” . Terrorists see all non-muslims as The Devil. And Pisces governs projections, which has us seeing all Muslims as Terrorists potentially. 

MARS the planet of Warriors is also in SAGITTARIUS and conjunct to Brussels natal URANUS at 5 degrees SAGITTARIUS indicating that this is a powder keg already exploding. MARS is also squaring Brussel’s natal Saturn in PISCES which indicates enemies and conflict over religious intolerance. 

ASTEROID ISIS named for the Great Goddess of EGYPT.

I hate to see Her name being taken in vain. But it is the commonly used Media name for Daesh Terrorists. I have included it in the charts. ISIS is at 13 degrees SCORPIO exactly on the attack charts Descendant and primarily it is opposite Brussels NATAL JUPITER ,VENUS, NEPTUNE conjunction in TAURUS in its own Natal House of transformation, death, taxes, power and control. Brussels was born with a very idealistic, beautiful and just society. Now being changed by these attacks.

Brussels has a beautiful Earth Trine when it was born which is being attacked by ISIS, PLUTO, JUPITER the Moon and the SOUTH NODE, all of which symbolize, memory, justice, revenge, obsession, religion, freedom and literally ISIS.

Mars will go Retrograde April 17 in Sagittarius at 8+ degrees which is conjunct to the Archangel ARIEL which symbolizes the personification of JERUSALEM, where this original Crusade began in 1096.  Ariel also means  an alter or the Lion of God. The Wisdom of Solomon describes Ariel as an angel who punishes demons. What is demonic is rather relative and depends on what one religion blames its own shadow onto.  Later texts describe Ariel’s role caring for nature.

I find this totally fascinating, I wrote before about the Paris bombing attacks. I find it very depressing and foresee much warring ahead.

Karmic Justice, Libra Lunar Eclipse March 23

KARMIC JUSTICE LIBRA LUNAR ECLIPSE March 23, 2016 MEDITATION

By AGENT 129 TARA GREENE

– a variation of this article is published at Cosmic Intelligence Agency

The second eclipse of the year is a North Nodal penumbral Lunar Eclipse @ 3+ degrees LIBRA, the sign of Justice, karma and balance. We certainly need this to bring balance into our own lives, relationships and to karmically adjust the crazy shenanigans happening everywhere in the world. We need to find the balance between the opposites.

This is a FULL MOON in LIBRA invoking the ARIES/LIBRA, “I” Thou , relationship axis, of self and other. Lunar eclipses brings us new emotional cycles and insightful, intuitive and often psychic revelations in relationships, communications, creativity and values. 

This eclipse helps us to see just how out of balance we are and how important karmic choices must be made now. We have to create a  balance of masculine and feminine energies, a SACRED ALCHEMY, the sacred MARRIAGE, within ourselves and in the world. Recently elected Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau appointed the first equal male and female cabinet ministers in the world. When asked why, he simple answered “Because it’s 2015.”  Enough said.

This eclipse will reactive last years’ September 27 total lunar eclipse at 4+ degrees ARIES. Think back on what has transpired in your life over these last six months.  

Visibility Lunar Eclipse Tara Greene

Visibility map of Lunar eclipse. effects are most portent in the total visible range

LIBRA is ruled by VENUS and she is now in Pisces where she is exalted. Venus is especially powerful as she is conjunct to NEPTUNE her “higher octave.” They are blessings us with spiritual, dreamy, out of this world cosmic Bliss. Tantric sexuality, knowing the Beloved, cosmic orgasms and uniting with soul mates is the hallmark for Lovers under this eclipse energy. You can also experience this if you are solo simply through breathing and meditations.

Lunar eclipses stir up the electro-magnetic fields, unconscious feelings and emotions. It also amplifies our dreams, so do pay attention to your dreams. This eclipse also increases fertility aspects. If you are trying to conceive a baby or a creative project, use this energy to help you. Check out where 3 degrees Libra falls in your natal chart.

The Sun is conjunct Mercury eight hours after the eclipse. A clear sign of the need to communicate in new {Aries} ways. This bodes well for new relationships or agreements created around this time.

LIBRA is ruled by VENUS and she is still very tightly connected to her Higher Mate Neptune in PISCES. We are under this benevolent, romantic, creative very spiritual, uplifting, compassionate aspect since Equinox 3 days earlier. 

Mars, where the action always is, sextiles the Moon and EROS, at 3 degrees AQUARIUS,indicating some hot dates. Mars also Trines the Sun from fiery Sagittarius. Mars in Sagittarius is a Truth warrior, a philosopher and fighter for justice. This is all good stuff.

JUPITER is conjunct the NORTH NODE and leading us onwards to expansion, faith, optimism, humility, hard work, learning about the environment, our health and work needs. Jupiter is in a TIGHT square {90 degrees} to Saturn about to turn RETROGRADE {16 degrees Sagittarius}  on the 25th on Good FRIDAY, and digging his heals in the tightest as the planet is barely moving. 

JUPITER and SATURN are in a wide opposition and square to NEPTUNE and VENUS. Your love will be tested in the most practical of everyday detailed way. Money issues may be the make it or break it area, or spiritual beliefs or some hidden or not so hidden enemies, like in-laws.  The reality of what IS, very hard and cold is being revealed versus the big dream, illusion, projection of how perfect they are.

CHIRON the wounded healer and the SOUTH NODE of the MOON and GREAT MOTHER CERES are conjunct indicating a karmic releasing of old, very old, karmic issues which we know are haunting us deep down in our souls and where we are the most afraid to go because that is where we are the most vulnerable and also the most healing of places.

These are ancient wounds around the Great Mother,  in all her glorious aspects who has been denied, suppressed, raped, tortured and ignored for thousands of years. This is a deep wound and every woman carries this as well as every man to. The soul is called the anima and is always considered feminine.  A man feels his mothers emotions in utero, so he knows deep down what the feminine feels. A man’s misogyny may stem from his own guilt and denying his own part in usurping the power of the Feminine. It is a huge defense. 

URANUS and PLUTO still in Cardinal crosses. 

LIBRA’s symbol is the ancient Egyptian Goddess MAAT’s golden scales of karmic justice. The Egyptian’s believed that after death, the human heart is weighed on the scales against Maat’s ostrich feather. If the heart is heavier than the feather, then the soul must return to earth to continue working on its’ emotional issues until cleared. Only when the heart is show to be as light as Maat’s feather and the scales are perfectly balanced, then the soul is considered freed of all karmic lessons.  This is the key symbol and one which we can always ask ourselves, How light is my heart in regards to this?

Lunar eclipses, like solar ones occur at similar degrees every 18+ years in what are called Saros cycles.  This is the 18th lunar eclipse in Saros cycle 142 which began on September 19, 1709 and which will end on November 17, 3007. 

The number 18 seems very powerful to me as a Tarot Astrology and Numerology symbol.

The #18 Arcana {Trump} in the Tarot is the symbol of The MOON. It is associated with Pisces and is the dark side of the moon, symbolizing our unconscious, our deepest darkest fears and karma. 

The number 18 in Hebrew, CHAI, means Life.  We can breathe, LIBRA, an AIR sign; new life into our relationships and into our understanding of our hopes and fears to bring more balance.

The Moon at 3 degrees LIBRA is conjunct to one of the most massive Black holes there is, in GALAXY-87 called ADONIS by astrologer Alex Miller-Mignone. This super sucker of all light and matter’s event horizon is 326 LIGHT YEARS across. That is staggering.  The short story of ADONIS the handsome youth who was born because of a magic spell from jealous Aphrodite/Venus and was eventually forced to split himself into being Persephone’s lover in Hades for part of the year and to spend part of his year with Venus on Mt. Olympus as her lover and part of his time alone.  

I find it fascinating that this Black Hole degree perfectly symbolizes where we are out of balance in our precious time for relationships and where it all gets sucked into these days.

Libra is an Air sign, the mind, it’s about communications after all. The net, our cell phones, sucks us into a Black Hole. They are useful tools but also keep us overextended like Adonis, running from one thing to the next frantically trying to appease others’ needs, our job, boss, partner, children with our own. We desperately need a middle more balanced way.

LIBRA is symbolized by the TAROT Trump #8 JUSTICE, also #11.

Justice Tarot Trump

Justice’s color is emerald-green, relating it to the heart chakra and Archangel Raphael. Its sound is F#. The symbol means an ox goad. The Hebrew letter is lamed.

MEDITATION and RITUAL

For the ceremony and meditation we want to bring in as many attributes as we can.  Use what you have.

Minerals and Stones associated with Libra

Smoky quartz, rutilated quartz, Herkimer diamonds, Moonstones, emeralds, lapis, kunzite, coral.

Stones for Aries

Red garnets, bloodstones, carnelian, ruby, amber.

I would use watermelon tourmaline as it has both the green tourmaline for Libra and the red for Aries.

Set up an alter or sacred meditation space.

Use lots of smudge and incense for Cardinal AIR.

Coriander, rose, sweetgrass, sandalwood, and vanilla for LIBRA. Put on quiet meditation music. You can prerecord these instructions with pauses to listen to as you do the meditation.

Use white or green for Venus and red candles for Mars/Aries. The MOON’s color is silver. Use silver candle stick holder or put dimes, quarters or silver dollars on the alter and wear silver jewelry.

Libra rules the skin, small of the back and kidneys and adrenals. Cleansing and toning herbs are angelica, thyme, burdock and bearberry.  The Moon rules the breasts, the left eye, the lymph, bodily fluids and saliva, ovaries. If you have any problems with these areas bring them into your meditation, and use Reiki to amplify the healing energy.

Begin by smudging yourself first.  Light your candles.  One for each direction. Always move clockwise whatever tradition you use. I start in the East, other traditions start in the South.

Call in the four elements and the four direction into your sacred circle.

Call in the four Archangels, Michael, Gabriel, Ariel, Raphael in the same order..and yourself as one equal entity, half of the other. Muslims and Jews, Catholics and atheists, men and women, straights and gays.  See the wholeness of self and other as yin and yang, the polarity which is necessary for all of life. Feel the respect and the peace as each discovers how necessary and needed and loved the other is.

HEALING AND CLEANSING MAGIC

With your intentions, use the eclipsed moon’s light to cleanse and purify any residual conscious and unconscious memories, from past, future lives and present life karma which is keeping you from loving yourself completely. Ask to release any blocks and fears of intimacy which keep you from being in a committed relationship.

Take your time. Ask to bring yourself into a place of total harmony, peace and love, firmly rooted in the middle way or pillar of justice.

Sense your heart reborn anew, lighter, clearer in its original purity.

Now visualize your heart weighed against Maat’s ostrich feather and watch until your heart comes into a perfect balance with that white feather on her scales of justice. Stay with this energy.

Be in this as long as you need. Meditate and ask what you need to do now. At the end of your meditation always thank the elements and spirits and close your circle. Write down visions, feelings and questions.

Blessings,   TARA

Release the past, Spring forwards with love

Just recollecting on the cleansing and purifying Tsunami of water energy from the planets March 17 which washes away a glut of ancient emotional baggage on a personal and collective level today. Yes it is also the wearing of the green in Ireland. A very lucky heart chakra centered day.
The Cancer Moon is very active in the Cardinal Crosses.
Mercury conjuncts CHIRON in PISCES 
Cry me a river, an ocean..The aspect is exact March 17 but lingers.

The Moon trines Chiron and MERCURY the SUN and the SOUTH NODE in PISCES.

Old emotional baggage has been surfacing so that we can see it and is now being released and washed away. We can be baptized in the prime source of ONeness energy as brand new beings. This is extremely liberating.
Definitely do water pujas and rituals to literally “wash that man right outta my hair” plus all the old karmic baggage we’ve had attached to us through this and every other lifetime. Drink tons of water to mirror the “as above, so below.”

A huge positive purge just before zero Aries time. This is an emotional spring cleaning of the best kind.

Moon enters Leo in the wee hours March 18

Moon in LEO, Horoscopes Tara Greene

Inspirational Daily Card -Royal Leo

we are about to experience another eclipse on the 23rd. These times are intense. I am writing about the next Eclipse in LIBRA now.

March 18 has a hot little fire trine from the Moon to Mars in Sagittarius. 

Burn the place down with new inspiration and joy at 4+ degrees of Sagittarius. If you have early Aries degrees- my Natal Jupiter is at 4+ degrees ARIES you get a GRAND FIRE TRINE!

things get quincunxy with a difficult transit from the Moon to VENUS and NEPTUNE in Pisces

Get out of the entanglements. Pisces energy tends to be co-dependent. If the Leo Moon gets your ego and your will roaring then listen to it. The energy on March 17 was so watery and Cancerian it could have driven you into curling up in a fetal position. It did that to me for part of the day.

Integrate the strength to will what you want in your relationships. Don’t be a martyr. 

It’s a pretty hot weekend. Equinox arrives Saturday night at 9:30 pm PDT under a Void of course Moon also on the 20th Spring Equinox at 12:30 am EDT.

and a gorgeous Venus Neptune Conjunction  on the 20th.

wishing you all Happy Spring

Blessings
