Heart of Darkness, Phoenix Scorpio Solar Eclipse

NOVEMBER 3 HYBRID SOLAR ECLIPSE 

This SCORPIO solar eclipse is a KICK ASS hybrid one that will shake and awaken your soul purpose.   During a Solar eclipse the electromagnetic energy of the moon blocking the Sun’s Light, re-purposes and re-aligns your pineal gland, the seat of the soul, your 3rd eye  function and the earth’s energy grids.

This hybrid solar eclipse packs a terrific KARMIC Saturn infused soul punch. Featuring SUN, MOON, SATURN, NORTH NODE AND MERCURY Retrograde all within 8 degrees of each other. 

Scorpio Solar Eclipse chart Tara Greene

OCCURRING 4 days after HALLOWEEN, the ancient PAGAN NEW YEAR, and 2 days after the Day of the Dead that alone packs significance.

I’d prep now. THIS MEANS YOU! Especially Scorpio’s born October 28th  – November 5.

All Taurus’s born -from approx. April 27 – May 7 – you get the opposition

All Leo’s born from approx. July 29- August 9th and

All AQUARIUS born from approx.  January 26 -February 5th -get squared- intense pressure

NOVEMBER 1st is also the 4th of seven EXACT squares between revolutionary URANUS and Soul/collective unconscious Planet PLUTO.This eclipse also carries that revolutionary evolutionary death to the old Capricorn order and revolutionary new life stamp with Uranus in Aries.

CAPRCIORNS AND ARIES born December 31- get the exact hit from that one. Aries born on MARCH 30. If you are born December 26-January 5 and March 25- April 5 you will also feel the full impact. You are meant to embody this evolutionary soul transforming energy. This is your life lesson and karmic mandate. Your mission. Do you understand?

 The last eclipse in this cycle was TOTAL and occurred on November 3 1994 at 10 degrees+ Scorpio. Where were you then? You have completed that cycle now. 

Many young people born in 1994, are so young to be under such intense pressure. If you are in this age group. You definitely need some guidance. – See link below to get your reading.

Other previous eclipse dates to reflect upon.

October 23,1976 , October 12, 1958 , October 1, 1940- John Lennon was born 8 days later. September 21 1922 ,   September 9 1904.

Eclipses have always had bad reputations going back millennia. SCORPIO is the sign most associated with Death, sex, power, the shadow, unconscious, secrets, and the soul. We have reason to fear.

This eclipse symbolizes the death of many old  karmic, emotional and FINANCIAL 8th house cycles. Death through water; waste, as symbolized by PLUTO, URANUS and Scorpio.  It’s like the BLACK PLAGUE metaphorically speaking.

LIFE REVIEW –DIE BEFORE YOU DIE

As I wrote before  use this eclipse energies to imagine that you have already died. Feel this. as if you have left your physical vehicle, your body and are hovering beyond it. You have your LIFE REVIEW flash before your eyes. You are shown all the damage you have done emotionally to others and yourself. You take FULL karmic responsibility for creating ever bit of it. In doing so, you create the opportunity to change everything. Change is the operative word here. Death change, rebirth. The PHOENIX RISING is the highest symbol of SCORPIO transformed.

VISIBILITY

A hybrid eclipse is a unique type of central eclipse where parts of  it appear as  annular, while other parts are total. This one is annular only at the beginning. The eclipse will be visible from the East Coast of North America,the Caribbean and South America, mainly over Equatorial AFRICA and the Indian Ocean. ECLIPSE energies begin to be felt 3 months ahead of the actual eclipse.

The areas where the eclipse is TOTAL are the areas affected the most. Nairobi KENYA is one area, where the terrorist attack in the mall occurred. Al- Shabbad claimed responsibility for these attacks for retribution for events that occurred in SOMALIA which is also a prime focus.

Mars, the planetary ruler of the eclipse sextiles it from 11 degrees Virgo, opposite to Chiron in Pisces and Quincunxes Uranus in Aries.

This is KICK ASS new masculine energy.

The eclipse chart features an EARTH GRAND TRINE with PLUTO in Capricorn, Mars in Virgo and the South Node in Taurus. ALL FEMININE.

MOST IMPORTANTLY 2012 the next level up.

I feel this eclipse locks in or takes us higher from the Dec 21 2012 alignments as VENUS is EXACTLY on the GALACTIC CENTER at 28 degrees SAGITTARIUS. There will be massive transmissions of infra-red and other very high level frequencies.

So do TUNE Into XIBALBA,  the cosmic vagina, the black hole between the universes.PLace of death and rebirth.

MEDITATE when the eclipse is most intense at 4:49 am PST /7:49 am EST

USE the BLACK OPAL as a meditation tool 

Black opal meditation crystal tara Greene

 MEDITATE on feeling the forces of the electro-magnetic energies shift and change during the entire eclipse.  Send your intention out to Venus at the Galactic Center, Ask your guardian angels to come and be with you. Ask to transmute the dark masculine  energies of death and destruction, of hatred and fear into love and understanding. Acceptance and balance. Ask for direction as how you can bring in more LIght into your heart, soul and into the world. 

The eclipse  will last 4 and a half hours.

Financial leap forwards as Venus goes Direct April 17 @ 29 degrees Pisces

how to work it, Mars Venus conjunction + much more from Tara Tarot Consultant  ©

 

On Friday April 17 @ 3:26 pm precisely EDT/12:26 pm PDT/7:25 pm GMT

VENUS TURNS DIRECT at 29 Degrees + change of PISCES that’s the Very Last of the Very Last Degree of the entire Zodiac. As Pisces is the Sign of endings, spirituality, Oneness, Bliss, Union, Sacredness, the Soul, Higher Love, merging with the Divine, the Beloved, ALL THERE IS. Venus turning around at the 29th+ = 30th degree, the final, finito, end, culmination of any sign, considered to be “critical” as in, the Game of Monopoly when you get the chance card that says STOP! Do not pass go! Do not collect…  in other words WE GOTTA GET “IT”  Finish that love/money/spirit cycle of martyrdom/fantasy and illusion all Pisces agendas -did I mention Neptune planetary ruler of Pisces rules OIL? & get over all that fossil fuel shenanigans, BEGIN ANEW,NOW!

 

This indicates that we are all together archetypal-y at a critical turning point in terms of Lessons in Love,{ remember that song?} Values, Beauty, Art, Relationships, Women, Money, Luxury, Mother Nature, the Body as Venus rules Earth sign Taurus as well as Airy Libra, symbol of the balance, Karma… all those Venus ruled goodies.

Venus turning direct at the 29 degree of Pisces  marks THE END of a major Spiritual cycle. 

Remember also that in these speeded up leaping into new dimensions of consciousness times that we’re presently in, everything becomes more synchronistic, more symbolic, more literal and more REAL, the dream and reality are merging into ONE. The word critical in itself is associated with Hindu Goddessess the Kritikas, who were the origins of the 3 fates in Greek mythology.

 

April 19th –20th  Moon Venus and Mars are all embracing each other at the last degrees of Pisces.

 

April 21 MARS conjunct VENUS at 29 degrees of Pisces To BALANCE & complete the sequence

 

So I can’t help but get the symbolic message that this is literally…

DANCE ME TO THE END OF LOVE

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y_PIadFsvDk

 

“Dance Me To The End Of Love”

Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
Dance me through the panic ’til I’m gathered safely in
Lift me like an olive branch and be my homeward dove
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love
Oh let me see your beauty when the witnesses are gone
Let me feel you moving like they do in Babylon
Show me slowly what I only know the limits of
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the wedding now, dance me on and on
Dance me very tenderly and dance me very long
We’re both of us beneath our love, we’re both of us above
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the children who are asking to be born
Dance me through the curtains that our kisses have outworn
Raise a tent of shelter now, though every thread is torn
Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
Dance me through the panic till I’m gathered safely in
Touch me with your naked hand or touch me with your glove
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love

 

I want to send great blessings and homage to Leonard Cohen who as a great artist, lover of women, song, all things Zen, Poet, prophet. Leonard has fulfilled his name destiny, as Cohen means The High Priest, so he is fulfilling that role in a new Archetypal way for all of us as all our “Pope’s” High Priests and High Priestesses use the medium of rock music, Venus rules music, to get their spiritual messages across.  Leonard was interviewed by CBC from his Montreal home on April 16.

 

As an Archetypal Universal symbol, VENUS {as the Dove} symbolizes and carries the energy of LOVE the element that created, birthed and sustains the entire Universes

So we see HER, the God/dess forces as leading and guiding us to end old cycle and renew ourselves NOW. Mars has been a few degrees behind Venus in Pisces these last few days lending action, anger, force, defensiveness and co-incidentally we see the women of Kabul Afghanistan marching to oppose that rape on demand by husband law, they took a brave stance they’re not gonna take it anymore! We need to support them.

 

So, as we can all see, these are very critical times. As we move ever faster towards the singularity event horizon of Novelty that ethno-biologist Terrence McKenna prophsied, a.k.a. Dec 21 2012/ the Mayan Calendar’s “best before” date, the end of time as we knew it, each of these turning points marks a notch towards that singularity. Lets not “slouch towards Jerusalem.”

 

Venus’s Retrograde cycle was described by ancient Sumerian  Mythology/Religion Psychology as the Great Goddess’s Inanna’s Descent into the Underworld as an Initiation. Inanna ventured into the Underworld {the SHADOW, Pluto’s domain} to be stripped of all her  worldly possessions untiil she was rendered a mere piece of meat hanging and rotting on a stake in the underworld, in other words she was striped bare of her ego, so that she could rise again, to the Upperworld, more whole, cleansed, redeemed and connected to Her own innate spiritual powers.

 

Venus’s disappearance from sight for eight days {the symbol for Infinity} as she passes over the Sun, changes her appearance from being a nigh time to a daytime star. The Ancient Greeks believed that Venus was two separate bodies, they called the morning star, Phosphoros the “Bringer of Light” or Latin Eosphorus the “Bringer of Dawn”. The evening star they called Hesperos,Latinized Hesperus the “star of the evening. Eventually the  realization came that there was only one planet with two distinct faces or phases. Hesperos would be translated into LatinVesper and Phosphoros as Lucifer (“Light Bearer”), a poetic term later used to refer to the fallen angel cast out of heaven.

 

So we together have just come out of an Archetypal shamanic death and rebirth journey of the Feminine, the Goddess, our money and values. Interesting isn’t it?

Venus direct happens on Orthodox Greek Good Friday ,so they are synchronized up perfectly and adding to this energy of rebirth. But we must make sure that we all got the lesson that began March 6th when Venus began her Retro.

 

RITUAL TO MARK THE END OF THE CYCLE & REBIRTH

To mark this part of your, the collective’s and the Goddesses’ journey through the Underworld, it’s optimum time and paramount that you release old patterns of “self-undoing, especially old negative, self defeating ones, as Pisces shows co-dependent, martyrdom as its shadow side. Think back on any and all the ways you sabotage yourself, in love, financially; are addicted to fantasy, delusion, drugs, sex, consumerism, and sado-masochistic tendencies. As a culture we have all been addicted, brainwashed, and have low self-esteem. This is time to visit all those secrets, the Real SECRET is there, its what’s behind everything, bless it, understand it, connect to the Source PISCES, allow spirit to heal it, leave all that behind and emerge BLISSFULL into a new dawn.

 

2012 MAYAN VIEW of VENUS

Co-incidentally as I was researching to give you a visual diagram of Venus cycles, the Ancient Maya used Venus as their primary planet, more important that the Sun, the Dec 21 2012 “end date”  has to do with Venus’s journeys, she was also very important Astrologically in Vedic Indian culture.

 

If you look at the diagram of the Mayan Venus Cycle time-line pictured as part of this post above you will note the Mayan glyphs imaged as small blue squares lined up along the time-line. Each blue square represents the Maya day-name associated with a specific date on the time-line. At the beginning on the far left the glyph for the Mayan day-name “Cib” represents the date August 26, 2007. That is the date upon which the ancient Maya approximated the first day that Venus would rise as a morningstar during this present cycle. The ancient Mayas actually considered that day to be the end of the last cycle rather than the beginning of this one and so they would not have pictured this date at the start of the diagram as I have done.

 this Venus Cycle that we are experiencing presently began at the very end of the previous one on August 26, 2007 on the Mayan day “10-Cib”. It lasted right on through superior conjunction which began on April 18 2008 ( 12-Eb) and then afterwards through the series of days of the Eveningstar risings which began on July 17, 2008 (11 Ik).

Finally now on the 24th of Marchj on the Mayan day-name “1-Eb” the series of Eveningstar apearances will end, and the planet Venus will enter the last phase in its present Cycle, a phase called “Inferior Conjunction”. This phase will last only eight days and will end on the first day of Morningstar risings, approximately on April 1, 2009 which in the Mayan Calendar is known as “9-Ahau”

The coincidence of a first day morningstar rising with a Mayan day-name “Ahau” was very important to the ancient Mayas. It signalled the end of one eight-year Venus Sequence composed of five Venus Cycles, and heralded the beginning of a new one.

 

Note that the Markets seem to have improved somewhat as Venus RX meant reversing what was already in place. The Sun just entered Taurus, one of Venus’s home signs on the 19th. The market should continue to strengthen temporarily in the sign of  the Bull.

 

MARS/VENUS CONJUNCTION April 21 @ 7:19 pm EDT/4:19 pm PDT/11:19 pm GMT

 

Now incredibly a brand new balanced cycle begins. Mars and Venus conjoin at 29 degrees 32 mins of Pisces. The rule is to round up and go forward so this means that a Huge new cycle begins because Venus and Mars are conjunct at ZERO degrees of ARIES.

Archetypally VENUS and MARS Conjunction is the Sacred Marriage, the Alchemy, the turning of Lead into Gold. We are exactly on the edge of the old,29 degrees of Pisces and the new Zero degrees of Aries, This is a Rebirth, a new life, Spring. Zero degrees of Aries is Archetypal New Life, the very beginning of the Zodiacal degrees., a new round in the Wheel of Time and Life.

 

RITUAL IS HUGE and timing is everything so it’s very important to mark these important celestial passages. Our ancestors world wide would have done so and Indiginous peoples are doing so and for a new ecology of the planet and consciousness and what with Earth Day on the 23rd ,let’s embody the planetary significance of this cycle inspiring a whole new balance and quality of Life.

 

The ALCHEMICAL MARRIAGE WITHIN

Prepare to do ritual, to manifest the “as above so below, as within.”  Usually one bathes and cleanses themselves, I would suggest wearing white. Call in the 4 directions, the 4 elements. Call Venus and Mars, light a Blue or green candle for Venus and a red candle for Mars and place them on your alter or on a table close together. Have fresh flowers around for the Celebration.

Play Dance me to the end of love or other music which relaxes and feels sensual. Take your time, relax and breathe. Remember that you have just finished the Archetypal “dark Night of the Soul” and have faced your Shadows, and are being reborn as Venus is, cleansed. You are a new being, a new person, ready to face a new dawn a new life, new love. Behold all is new!

Visualize inside of yourself your own inner Queen and King, {or Prince and Princess} your inner Masculine and Feminine sides, every person has both. The Feminine side is the feelings, intuition, receptivity, traditionally the left side,  The Masculine side, usually the right side, is where you act on and defend the Feminine Guidance in reality. Really sense, visualize what they look like, details. Feel their presence, their love and passion, their honesty and dedication, their longing to unite with one another, their hope of creating Heaven on earth together.  Hear the strains of the Wedding march or other music which feels appropriate to you, whatever that may be. {personally I love the song Put Your Love in Me}

See, Feel and sense your Beloved. See your inner couple being present at their own, your own Wedding. Feel the heat and sweetness of their breaths and hear their vows to each other, Feel within your self a melting into a sacred inseparable union. Bring your hands together and as you do hear and feel two heartbeats meld into One and clasp your hands together. Hear the Wedding Bells chime. Feel the soaring union in your heart. You are whole and complete, inseparable within yourself, nevermore alone, you have achieved the Inner Sacred. Everything changes upon this union. Masculine and Feminine sides become Interchangable, balanced. Feel the elation and the awe, the sense of being able to relax and let go, the chase is over, all is attained. You are the Beloved and the Lover. Hear Tears of joy will well up in our eyes, let them flow. Feel and sense the joy, the choruses of angels and archangels and  Seraphim all singing in praise. Dance the joy.

Give yourself a gift, write out the vows, your experience of the wedding. Drink champagne, this is a Holy Day! Take a photo of yourself as a Newlywed! Take yourself on a honeymoon in your imagination. Make sure the experience lasts. Speak only positive loving words to each of your inner mates.
