Mardis Gras Vesta and Parentalia Feb. 13

Happy Mardis Gras

It is also an Ancient Roman Festival called the Parentalia which means “ancestral days.” It was a nine-day festival held in honor of family ancestors, beginning on 13 February. It involved VESTA.

Vesta Roman Priestess Astrology Tara Greene

From Wikipedia

The Parentalia was a Roman religious calendar Holiday its observances were mainly domestic and for families. The importance of the family to the Roman state, however, was expressed by public ceremonies on the opening day, the Ides of February, when a Vestal Priestess conducted a rite for the collective di parentes of Rome at the tomb of Tarpeia.

Ovid describes sacred offerings of flower-garlands, wheat, salt, wine-soaked bread and violets to the “shades of the dead” (Manes or Di manes) at family tombs, which were located outside Rome’s sacred boundary. These observances were meant to strengthen the mutual obligations and protective ties between the living and the dead, and were a lawful duty of the paterfamilias (head of the family). Parentalia concluded on 21 February in the midnight rites of Feralia, when the paterfamilias addressed the malevolent, destructive aspects of his Manes.

Feralia was a placation and exorcism: Ovid thought it a more rustic, primitive and ancient affair than the Parentalia itself. It appears to have functioned as a cleansing ritual for Caristia on the following day, when the family held an informal banquet to celebrate the amity between themselves and their benevolent ancestral dead. The emphasis on collective cult for the Manes and early di parentes implies their afterlife as vague and lacking individuation. In later cult they are vested with personal qualities, and in Imperial cult, they acquire divine numen and become divi, divine entities.”-see link below

I am thinking about VESTA meaning the Virgin  in LATIN the fourth Asteroid to be discovered She is #4 known for the Priestess who kept the eternal flame burning in Ancient Rome. Vesta in your natal or in an event chart symbolizes Fire focus dedication Kundalini Tantric energy activations. The root word VESTA is the source of our money making in our inVESTment Portfolios. She is a super important powerful goddess and all investments are governed by her.

Where is she now?

Today she is at 13 degrees SAGITTARIUS squaring NEPTUNE in PISCES

and closely conjunct to MARS in SAGITTARIUS

This aspect is the perfect WTF is going on with Cryptocurrencies or the world of Finance these days or the entire messy world we are witnessing these days. Neptune in PISCES is the world of delusion illusion projection scam artists and debt. So do be very very careful these days.  A lot of people have been scammed by the Bitcoin wagon of dreams. “All that glitters is not real.” 

Stay focused on your own internal wisdom. Vesta protects the home fires. Make sure your first priority is that.

Vesta is conjunct the GREAT ATTRACTOR at 14 degrees SAGITTARIUS 02

Focus on what you really want to attract now.

VESTA will conjunct the Great Attractor on the Feb 15 Solar Eclipse with Mars 2 degrees behind her at 12 degrees SAGITTARIUS.

Mars and Vesta meet up on Feb. 25 @ 18+ degrees SAGITTARIUS.

Do you know where your Natal VESTA is?

If you have planets or angles there mark that date done as an auspicious day to do ceremony.

Lesley Gore Immortality Tara Greene

Lesley Gore Astrology Tara Greene

Lesley, born Lesley Sue Goldstein was a Taurus born May 2 1946. I have no accurate birth time so use Noon. Famous for being a pop sensation at 16 years old in 1963 with “It’s My Party”  the singer-songwriter helped Quincy Jones score his first number one hit. Leslie followed up with a string of pop hits including Marvin Hamlisch’s first hit composition “Sunshine, Lollipops and Rainbows” in 1963.

“You Don’t Own Me” which was written by two men incidentally was truly the first Feminist pop anthem. Released in 1964 it held the number two position behind the Beatles, “I Want to Hold Your Hand.”  The song  continues to stand up and thrill today.

Lesley’s passionate vocals always carried any song. She continued to write songs and contributed “Out Here On My Own” to the hit 1980 movie FAME working with her songwriter brother, which won her an Academy Award nomination.

Born Lesley Sue Goldstein, she also came out as a lesbian later in her life. She and narrated a LGBT oriented public television show, In the Life  on American TV in the 2000’s. 

Lets look at her chart in Life and at Death

Lesley was a double Taurus, with Sun and Moon in the sensuous and earthy practical sign. Ruled by Venus which gives a beautiful voice poise and lovely graceful features. Lesley had Venus plus Uranus conjunct the North Node in Gemini indicating she had a dual very charming nature and was a naturally great communicator and writer.

Uranus conjunct the North Node is someone who communicates a message of liberation, freedom and individuality, exactly the “You don’t own me” singers karmic message to the world.  Her songs will always be a freedom flag for youth with that Gemini energy.

The main T-square in her chart comes from Mercury in Aries opposite to Jupiter in Libra and square to Saturn at 19 degrees of Cancer. Lesley  was a hard-working young woman who was very mature at 16.  She managed to stay grounded and modest and managed to live a normal life in spite of the fame at such a tender age. She went on to to graduate from Sarah Lawrence College.

Lesley had Neptune, planet of artists and creatives conjunct to Chiron the wounded  healer in Libra opposite to her natal Mercury. She was a shy person, who felt self-conscious, yet sang out her pain.   ” Its my party and I’ll cry if I want to. “

Lesley also had Lilith at the 29th degree of Scorpio-one of the most powerful degrees in the Zodiac opposite to her natal Venus in Gemini. No wonder she sang “You don’t own me.” OMG that is Lilith’s popular anthem totally. This would also have been indicated her naturally being a lesbian.

Her passionate voice, natural leadership and star power comes from her Mars, Pluto conjunction in Leo. People were naturally drawn to her powerful voice and big-hearted delivery. She was every inch a star.

At her death of lung cancer, Feb 16 2015.

I am sorry to say that her natal Mercury, Saturn and Chiron the Wounded Healer were all under the pressure of the Cardinal Cross aspect from Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn, opposing, squaring and conjunct those planets. It’s tough.

A Ceres, Pluto, Moon conjunction at 14+ degrees of Capricorn opposite her natal Saturn is a very beautiful symbol of Lesley being called home to be comforted and held by the GREAT MOTHER in Death/Life. 

Neptune is squaring Lesley’s Sun, which also symbolizes a peaceful death, an easy letting go of life and being carried by spiritual bliss to return to the Light and the Source.

The North Node in Aries is also conjunct to her Natal Neptune in Libra. Another a beautiful symbol for an artist who has done her work, given the gift of her soul and is now free to go back to Source. 

Thank you Lesley from the millions of fans who loved your voice and your music. You will be treasured and remembered always. Namaste. Blessing to you.  a fan.
