Mars in Libra, Make Love Not War

Mars in LIBRA, is Make Love not war, Peace and balance

Mars, the warrior enters Libra, Venus’s boudoir and sign of love September 14-October 30, 2021 for the first time in over two years. Where the red macho man planet is considered to be in DETRIMENT, in Venus Airbnb sign. This is traditional astrology designation.

Note that Mars will oppose his travel through his own, not that common Retrograde journey through ARIES in 2020. Expect relationship issues and themes from that time to show up again.

MARS entered its Retrograde July 25 2020 at 15+ ARIES the middle degree

MARS TURNED RETROGRADE SEPTEMBER 9 AT 28+ ARIES

MARS TURNED STATIONARY DIRECT NOVEMBER 13 AT 15 ARIES THE EXACT POINT IT WENT RETRO

MARS LEFT RETROGRADE SHADOW JANUARY 2, 2021 AT 28+ ARIES.

NOTE ALSO THAT PLUTO THE CO-RULER OF SCORPIO MARS OTHER HOME SIGN IS NOW AND WILL BE IN ALL OF 2022 SQUARING THAT 28 ARIES POINT ADDING EMPHASIS TO WHAT WAS ONLY BEGINNING THEN WHICH WAS STILL RELATIVELY EARLY COVID-19 LOCKDOWN.

MARS IN LIBRA is good overall for a very romantic, sexy, and hopefully peace making time. Lord we need it. The main thrust is to stay balanced. In a very hyper polarized world which the Agenda keeps pushing on the key is as the Buddha said the MIDDLE WAY or the Middle Pillar on the Tree of Life.

Mars is a soldier of Love. Venus is in MARS is a sexy sign and they are in MUTUAL RECEPTION which lasts until October 7 when Venus enters fiery honest SAGITTARIUS.

Mars needs to integrate his own shadow warrior side which is the peace-maker, go-between, needs other people, and desires to think of others, and to balance things out, to talk about it, analyze it, reconcile….

Men are from Mars and Women from Venus so they say. Did you read that book?

So what happens when Mars, the fiery fearless WARRIOR GOD stays in Venus’s oh so beauteous AIR STREAM trailer home sign of LIBRA?

MARS IN LIBRA = MR. NICE GUY.     Venus, the balls are all in your court.

Mars  is considered to be debilitated weak by macho standards. He’s in the kitchen, learning to cook, wearing skirts and fixing his pretty face. Men embracing their feminine side in various degrees is a good thing. Venus in Scorpio helps women to embrace their own sexuality in a deep way.

Aries

Your planetary ruler has his pants down, and your libido will be lower.  This is great time for Aries to pause, to stop being so spontaneous and to relax a bit. Let down your defenses. Put  the battle ax down. Ask for a truce. Think about what they want for  a change.

SCORPIO

Your ruling planet defects into Libra territory. You need to get detached, and this is what AIRY Libra is. Also Libra wants to know what the “other” wants, not just their own unconscious need to control. With Venus in Scorpio this can be a great time for relationships and sex, a simmer down approach, a shifting of the balance of things in general in your life. You deserve some peace too.

Mars in Libra is trying to RE-BALANCE “Marriage” and committed relationships Not to mention JUSTICE in general.  Libra is the need to find Peace and be a peaceful warrior.

Libra is the Tarot Trump #8 JUSTICE.

Mars in Libra meditation for balance.

Libra is the Egyptian Goddess Ma’at’s scales of Justice..

Sit in a comfortable position and relax and begin to breathe naturally and deeply. Paying attention to only your breathing in and out and letting all thoughts melt away.   Send your breath throughout your whole body and relax every muscles until you are totally relaxed. Feel and visualize your heart beating. See Ma’at’s golden scales in front of you with her ostrich feather on one scale. Imagine that you can safely remove your beating heart from your chest and place it on the empty golden scale. On the other scale is her ostrich feather. Watch how the scales bob up and down. How heavy is your heart?  If your heart weighs down the scales then go into your heart and examine what all that heaviness is all about. Discover what the nature of these heavy emotions are. Is it regret? is it insecurity? depression? fear? sadness? guilt? A mix of some? Feel all the heavy emotions. Let them open up memories in you.  Are you ready to transform all those heavy emotions into Light and pure unconditional love?

Ask for your Guardian Angels to come help you with this. Feel and sense a white or golden light coming down from above you and filling your whole body. When you feel full of Divine light. Then send the golden or white angelic light into your troubled heavy heart on the scale and see what happens. Take your time. Take deep breaths, let out all the heaviness. 

Watch what happens. The key is your desire to be connected with your guardian angels and to know that anything you feel you emotionally heavy about,  can be transmuted through pure love which ultimately is coming from your Higher Self.. 

Wait until you feel the shift,,, watch your heart and the white ostrich feather come to a balanced equilibrium. 

Feel how light you are!. When this is complete, thank your angels and the Goddess Ma’at and bring your light heart back into your chest and magically sew up your body so you are better than ever. Happy whole, light-hearted. 

LIBRA energy planets strongly AFFECTS AN ENTIRE GENERATION

The PLUTO In LIBRA generation born during 1971-1984.  The SATURN in LIBRA group born September 1980 till August 1983.  Mars is going to be activating  all of that Generation’s relationship issues. Those whose karmic soul lesson it is to uncover that very lesson, to rebalance old karmic debts in relationships.  Pluto is the Soul and Libra is KARMA and SATURN is double karma.  This generation was born at the beginning of the Women’s liberation movement when divorces and single mothers became common. 50% of all children now come from single or divorced families. 

MARS opposes Chiron on October 1

A good time to open up to real intimacy and healing in your relationships or be able to be there and just listen to another.

Venus and Mars transgender times

Venus in Scorpio November 7 until December 1st

I would definitely make a love potion at that time. A quick 3 week run into the deep dark notoriously sexual soul searching controlling secretive BDSM known death and rebirth time. Yes this is going to throw the sexual energy into high gear, as emotionally everything is felt at 200%.

PLUS LILITH is on the GALACTIC CENTER about to leave SAGITTARIUS on November 9th. This gives that goddess of “dark sexuality” more power.

Venus is not traditionally in her glory in Scorpio though, as she is “in detriment” in Mars’s sign. The Good news is that MARS is now in LIBRA her sign. They are in what is called “mutual reception” this is a very good thing for relationships. 

Lilith Art Napoleon Brousseau

Its a kind of transgender.Women/Venus/ The Divine Feminine is integrating her masculine side and for the masculine to integrate a softer loving considerate side. Ben Affleck stated he would donate all proceeds from Weinstein and Miramax to charities-one supports film the other women. 

In the tarot, this energy is symbolized #14 TEMPERANCE.

#14 Temperance Bonefire tarot. Tara Greene tarot reader

#14 Temperance/Alchemy/Art by my friend Gabrielle West Bonefire Tarot

The masculine becomes feminine and the feminine becomes masculine. this is a SACRED MARRIAGE Aspect. ALCHEMY. turning Lead { Saturn} into gold {the SUN}. 

VENUS IN SCORPIO is EROTIC Fixed energy, purpose, power. Gives staying power.  Venus in Scorpio dressed in a Dominatrix outfit, cracks her whips.

Venus helps you to address your fears of intimacy while she is in Scorpio.

All religions have sought to control women’s sexuality as it is the direct line to ecstasy to God/Goddess source. I always liked the teachings that the SHIVA/SHAKTI  Masculine Feminine force are always in union always lovemaking, constantly co-creating the Universe. The nature of the Universe is erotic, magnetic.

Imagine a world where the erotic is celebrated and worshipped instead of reviled. It is returning.

SCORPIO territory is the depths, it’s what matters. It’s all that matters.

Wherever Venus is, is where the feminine receptive energy is. it’s where values are, it’s where the MONEY is. Put your money/values where your sex/soul is.  Bringing soul into your love life.

Scorpio is the underworld, the place of death and rebirth. It’s the place of garbage, refuse, recycling.  Scorpio territory is the wasteland, the refuse. It’s sexual shame, the baggage, garbage, the neglected stuff which is transformed through Venus’s love into the soul’s worth.

This is a great time to open those old sexual wounds and to heal them. We see this issue very powerfully in the news being amplified by JUPITERS swim through SCORPIO until November 2018. 

Go deep, go down, go within, go into your deepest darkest sexual shame and focus your love onto it.  

Yes its time to OBSESS over everything. Deep, deep, transformation time. 

Venus rules your love life, your values, art, relationships, women.

SCORPIO is the Phoenix rising from the ashes.

Old love affairs that have died may be rekindled now.

VENUS in Scorpio is The Empress and Death combined.

 

The Goddess of BIRTH and the Death Bringer, the HAG or Crone. Nature, the Goddess is both, in every birth there is a death.

SEXY POWERFUL VENUS in SCORPIO WOMEN

Kris Jenner, Sarah Silverman, Ann Hathaway, Rachel McAdams, Mila Jovovich, Demi Moore, Jodie Foster, Naomi Watts, Condoleeza Rice, Serena Williams, Avril Lavigne, Twiggy, Grace Slick, Ava Gardner,

Hillary Clinton is a multiple Scorpion.  

SEXY POWERFUL Venus in Scorpio Men

Leonardo DiCaprio, Vladimir Putin, Jay-Z, Tiger Woods, Zac Efron, Drake,  Hugh Jackman, Bill Gates, Matt Damon, Keith Richards, Denzel Washington,  Joaquin Phoenix, Charles Manson, Stephen Speilberg, Ian Somerhalder, Louis Thomlinson, Snoop Dog, Jim Morrison, Bruce Lee,  Mahatma Ghandi

SCORPIO is the Phoenix rising from the ashes. We are in the year of the PHOENIX in Chinese Astrolohy

Old love affairs that have died may be rekindled now.

Mars in Libra, love action Astrology

Mars the warrior enters Libra, Venus’s boudoir and sign of love Nov. 12- January 3, 2016.

This bodes well overall for a very romantic, sexy, and peaceful time. The main thrust is to stay balanced.  Mars in LIBRA is following Venus through her own sign. He is a soldier of Love and she is the Queen of LOve until December 4th when she enters Scorpio Mars’ home sign. Then they will be in mutual reception until Venus enters Sagittarius on Dec. 29th and Mars enters Scorpio his sign on Jan 3, 2016.  

He wants to balance things out, to talk about it, analyze it, reconcile….

Men are from Mars and Women from Venus so they say. Did you read that book?

So what happens when Mars, the fiery fearless WARRIOR GOD stays in Venus’s oh so beauteous AIR STREAM trailer home sign of LIBRA?

MARS IN LIBRA = MR. NICE GUY.     Venus, the balls are all in your court.

Mars  is considered to be debilitated weak by macho standards. He’s in the kitchen, learning to cook, wearing panty hose, and fixing his pretty face. O Bla Di O bla Da is his theme song.  This is a pretty hot theme, men transitioning into the feminine, this never means a sex change in order to comprehend their own inner Psyche, or anima. Tsk, Tsk, this is such a material, literal level to live on, it has no depth whatsoever, all surface. 

MARS IN LIBRA POSTER BOY ZAC EFRON

Venus and Mars just had their third lovely rendezvous in Virgo Nov. 2

Aries Peeps

your planetary ruler has his pants down, and your libido will be lower.  This is great time for Aries to pause, to stop being so spontaneous and to relax a bit. Let down your defenses. Put  the battle ax down. Ask for a truce. Think about what they want for  a change.

SCORPIO

One day after the Scorpio New Moon your ruling planet defects into Libra territory. You need to get detached, and this is what AIRY libra is. Also Libra wants to know what the “other” wants, not just their own unconscious need to control.

Nelson Mandela Life and death Astrology insights, from Tara Greene

The great visionary, peace maker, first democratically elected president of South Africa Nelson Mandela passed away on Dec 5 at 95 years of age. We are fortunate to live at the same time that such a great human walked the earth and shone as a great beacon.

Nelson Mandela astrology Tara Greene

Born the son of a chief, his father died when he was 9. He studied to be a lawyer. He fought for equal rights for blacks to rule their own country, freedom from the hundreds of years of Dutch overrule. He believed, like Gandhi in peace.  He was a founding member of ANC youth leauge.In 1948 when Apartheid was implemented he advocated strikes, and civil disobedience. He became president in 1951. Apartheid tightened its grip and in 1956 he and hundreds of other leaders were tried for treason. Mandala led the defence in a 4 1/2 year trial.They were all acquitted. But Police found that Mandela had been part of an undergound ANC guerilla group founded in 1961. This group claimed to have carried out 70 acts of sabotage and Mandela was sentenced to life in prison. He spent 27 years in two different prisons enduring hard labour with no contact with the outside world at all.  DeKlerk became leader and he was a reformer in 1989. Finally on February 11, 1990 Mandela became a free person.

In 1994 Mandela was the first democratically elected black President of South Africa. He had his prison guards in the front row when he took his oath as President. In 1999 after the completion of one term he stepped down. He became a philanthropist, setting up benefits for AID’s world-wide and creating scholarships and mentoring for African Youth.

Known affectionately as MADIBA. Lets look at what Mandela’s birth chart says about how,why and who he was.

Nelson Mandala astrology Tara Greene

NELSON was born at the end of the First World war. A  Cancer  Sun, the most clan oriented, sensitive, emotional, protective, nurturing, sign. The Sun in the 8th house has great power, for change, transformation, struggles, rebirth, secrets. He changes others. A Cancer Sun, with Scorpio overtones.

His Moon was in Scorpio at 20 degrees in the 12th house , a very emotional, intense, private, karmic, spiritual Moon. Emotionally he was very soulful and very deep. The 12th house is the house of prisons, connecting to faith, spirit, Bliss, compassionate, a guru. This Lunar placement shows a past life karma of being a very spiritual person, of someone who knew what solitude is. Who could connect directly with spirit and who could forgive.

Nelson had Mercury conjunct Saturn and Neptune in LEO, the Sign of the KING, in the 9th house of politics, justice, freedom, International connections, a philosopher, teacher,this is very powerful. Saturn is his father, karma, testing, obstacles. Leo is a Fixed sign, showing incredible daring, courage, leadership, unswerving focus.  It was these planetary factors which enabled Mandela to survive with his pride intact with inordinate Leonine strength in prison for 27 years, almost a complete Saturn cycle. Saturn conjunct Neptune in Leo is being the architect of a dream of the soul and heart. Mandela had all the skills necessary to speak from the heart and to dream Big.

Mars in Libra in the 11th house. Mars in Libra is considered weak but it reached its highest expression through Mandela. The true diplomat, the man of peace who brings balance between two opposing factions. Mandela had the gift of grace and charm. His battle was fought with words not spears.

Mandela had Jupiter conjunct Pluto in Cancer in the 7th house. Jupiter is large, the King, conjunct to Pluto it is great wealth and power, indomitable emotional strength and will. In the 7th house, he married the world, his people, he was emotionally committed to the revolutionizing of his  Motherland- Cancer/ Africa. 

Mandela had Venus in Gemini which makes him able to see both sides. He was a great arbitrator, lawyer, always open minded. Charming. He loved his work with Venus in the 6th house. Venus in Gemini rules the lungs and he had TB and died of lung related disease.

Uranus in Aquarius is in its own Sign Retrograde. Uranus is at its strongest at home.  He was a natural revolutionary from the get go. A rebel a forward thinking Aquarian,a  democratic thinker and speaker. Uranus in the 3rd house of Communications makes it natural for him to be able to communicate this from his deepest soul with Uranus square the Scorpio Moon. He was obsessed with his vision of freedom from Apartheid.

Nelson’s North Node, his highest spiritual goal was at 21 degrees Sagittarius on his Sagittarius Ascendant.Think of the Archer, that was Mandela aiming higher, having Hope. ALso a great sense of humor.

Chiron at 3 degrees Aries in his 4th house. Mandela deeply felt the wounds of the people, 4th house is home, mothering nurturing. Chiron square PLUTO and Jupiter in Cancer opposite Mars in Libra. He deeply felt the split of apartheid. As a wounded healer he had the ARIES fighting initiative unlimited energy and resiliency to propel great power into rebalancing the status quo. 

A Virgo Mid heaven made him modest and born to serve the needs of others. A perfectionist, very intellectual.

His South Node, not shown is at 21 degrees Gemini conjunct his Venus on the Descendant, in the 6th house of work and service. A humble man, he had been a communicator, a go- between, someone who knew how to bring different factions in to Unity in the past. 

On the day of his death,December 5 2013 after a lengthy infection in his lungs, Mandela passed away peacefully at his home in Johannesburg. 

Comets are known to herald the passing of great leaders and so it was that COMET ISON passed through our cosmos only days ago. 

Mandela passed away at 8:50 PM South Africa time. The Moon was conjunct to VENUS in Capricorn at 22-24  degrees Capricorn directly opposite to Mandela’s SUN. A very beautiful aspect with Jupiter having just passed over Mandela’s Sun. 

Saturn, Father Time,  was three degrees away from Mandela’s Scorpio moon, also squaring his Natal Saturn Mercury conjunction in Leo. Pluto is in square to his Natal Mars in Libra. Uranus is opposite his Mars, squaring his Natal PLUTO. In other words the Grand Cardinal Cross was aspecting his Natal chart directly.

His Numerology 7 18 1918 = 17 Personality Number the symbol of THE STAR AQUARIOUS and # 8 Karma, Libra, Strength, Justice is also very fitting.

Nelson Mandela leaves the world a much better place. We were fortunate to be breathing the same air as this great man. His faith determination, vision, strength of spirit will always survive as a guide for everyone.  He had many wonderful inspiring quotes which will live on. He leaves his 3rd wife, children and grandchildren and an entire country Mother Africa and the worlds mourning his loss. 

SOME QUOTES:

“A nation should not be judged by how it treats its highest citizens but its lowest ones.” 

“For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.”

– “Long Walk to Freedom” from his Autobiography 1995

“Death is something inevitable. When a man has done what he considers to be his duty to his people and his country, he can rest in peace.” 

Thank You Nelson Mandela

 

 

MARS in LIBRA, Men are from Venus in 2014 Astrology from Tara Greene

Men are from Mars and Women from Venus so they say. Did you read that book?

So what happens when Mars, the fiery fearless WARRIOR GOD stays in Venus’s oh so beauteous AIR STREAM trailer home sign of LIBRA?

MARS IN LIBRA = MR. NICE GUY.     Venus, the balls are all in your court.

Mars  is considered to be debilitated weak by Macho standards. He’s in the kitchen, learning to cook, wearing panty hose, and fixing his pretty face. O Bla Di O bla Da is his theme song. 

MARS IN LIBRA POSTER BOY ZAC EFRON

Sun in LIBRA & Mars in LIBRA

Men in love, sex and war in love, divorces, custody battles. Is love a battle? Sex? Do you use sex for power?

These are important questions. Is love a blessing or a curse in your life?

Venus meanwhile, starts 2014 RETROGRADE, beginning her journey into the Underworld on WINTER SOLSTICE 2013 @ 28 degrees 58 minutes of CAPRICORN. Not good for the economy or relationships. She turns DIRECT @ 13  degrees 38 minutes Capricorn on Jan 30. It will take till March 5 when she reboots from her start point.  Venus ends 2014 three degrees away from her start point @ 25 degrees Capricorn.

WELCOME TO THE GRAND INITIATION of the Masculine into the Feminine

Trying to RE-BALANCE “Marriage” and committed relationships, BIG TOPIC until July 25 2014.

No to mention JUSTICE in general.

It starts December 7 2013 when Mars enters Libra.

MARS GOES RETROGRADE @ 27 degrees 32 minutes LIBRA on March 1st until May 19 @ 9 degrees 02 minutes. It will take till July 21 till Mars can move forward.

Its not that everything stops its just that Mars is desire, sex, action, life force, war. PEACE may descend. 

It’s a very KARMIC year. The Scales of Justice are Goddess Maat’s scales. She weighs your heart and your past deeds.

AFFECTS AN ENTIRE GENERATION

Especially the PLUTO In LIBRA generation born during 1971-1984.  Plus the SATURN in LIBRA group born September 1980 till August 1983.  Mars is going to be shaking the scales and activating by forward and Retrograde motion all of that Generation’s relationship issues. Those whose karmic soul lesson it is to uncover this very lesson. Which is, in part is to rebalance old karmic debts in relationships as Pluto is the Soul and Libra is KARMA and SATURN is double karma.  This generation was born at the beginning of the Women’s liberation movement when divorces and single mothers became common. 50% of all children now come from single or divorced families. 

This Pluto in Libra generation is now at the oldest, 42 and experiencing their mid-life crises.

Those born from Autumn 1983 and younger are the ones most affected by these transits of Mars in LIBRA.

Pluto in Libra is seeking the true equal relationship.

MARS in Libra is all about diplomacy, fairness, balance, but striving for it, it doesn’t have it, needing equilibrium, aplomb.

Mars is where all the sexy action is. It’s hanging in the Balance, being judged. 

Mars in Libra is very social, loves the Arts, romantic, want to be loved back in Libra.

Those T- squares come in and it will be very intense on April 15 Total Lunar Eclipse. I am feeling that I have to organize a tour to SEDONA in APRIL to help balance these powerful energies. YOU WANT TO COME? 

I’m mulling this over, Mars in Libra means we will need all of our energy and firepower to keep things in Balance.

Relationships will definitely get REVIEWED REWIRED, re-evaluated, REST, all the RE- things with Mars Retrograde. 

“He loves me, he loves me not, Does he love me? Do I love him?” over and over BECAUSE LIBRA, a dual sign, just can’t make up their minds.

Remember PLUTO in CAPRICORN will be applying practical nails into that cross your heart and hope to die marriage vows you took.

URANUS in ARIES- will be also waving the FREAK FLAG HIGH for equal rights marriages, laws, revolutions, fomenting new beginnings, new technologies, of the Sacred I am hoping, not the PROFANE.

Here’s the Total ECLIPSE OF THE HEART CHART APRIL 15 2014

Total Lunar Eclipse Astrology Tara Greene

check this out against your NATAL CHART- any planets or angles you have with stuff between 12-28 degrees of those CARD signs is IN.

Mars rules the SUN MERCURY URANUS Juno &  SATURN in Scorpio in this chart

NOTE also the NEPTUNE VENUS CHIRON CONJUNCTION IN PISCES which means SPIRITUAL HEALING COMPASSION FORGIVENESS, BUT it is in QUINCUNX – they no speak the same language- to MARS Retrograde at 16 degrees LIBRA.

This is a key chart for all of 2014.
