THE MOON AS AN IMPRESSIONIST PAINTING

Moon, Impressionist art, Tara Greene

 

The top image is a MASCS VIRS interpolated color composite of the craters Rachmaninoff (lower left) and Copland (upper right). The bottom image is a monochrome MDIS mosaic of the same area. In the VIRS image, red areas like Copland (C) are brighter than blue areas like Rachmaninoff (R). The very bright red region in-between is a suspected volcanic vent (V). The color differences revealed in the VIRS image reveal differences in the composition of the surface rocks, as well as varying degrees of exposure to space weathering in the harsh environment of Mercury.

The VIRS composite shows hundreds of individual footprints tracks (minimum 100-200 m across and 3-4 km long) taken from different directions and altitudes. In locations where multiple footprints cover the same area, the footprint with the best illumination for mineralogical interpretation (usually the lowest incidence angle where shadows are minimized) is used for making the map. In areas where footprints are sparse (separated by tens of km), observations are interpolated for complete coverage of the surface. In the MDIS mosaic, some brightness variations are due to tiling of images taken at different illuminations.

The MESSENGER spacecraft is the first ever to orbit the planet Mercury, and the spacecraft’s seven scientific instruments and radio science investigation are unraveling the history and evolution of the solar system’s innermost planet. During the first two years of orbital operations, MESSENGER acquired over 150,000 images and extensive other data sets. MESSENGER is capable of continuing orbital operations until early 2015.

GEMINI NEW MOON June 8,Mercurial Lovers Moon by Tara Greene Astrology

NEW MOON in GEMINI JUNE 8 @ 18+ degrees @ 8:58 am PDT/11:58 am EDT/3:58 pm GMT

Just Like M & M’s – Magical and Mercurial

GEMINI is the first human Constellation and features twins. Much star lore about twins exists in the myths of all cultures.  Gemini is always about doubles. Double or nothing, Double the energy, double your thoughts. Doppelganger’s, anyone? In the Tarot GEMINI is the Sign of The LOVERS. # 6, June is the month of LOVE. We are each sex in the other, duality is a necessary illusion.

The LOVERS Tarot Tara Greene

I found this image on TUMBLER

 

A light breezy,  dual natured/LOVERS, gender conscious New Moon. The NEW MOON features the Sun Moon Jupiter Mars and Athena Asteroid Goddess of Wisdom in the Dual air sign. That’s 5 “planets” in Yin/Yang relationships.

Mercury the ruler of Gemini is in Cancer focusing all that Mental Floss through EMO. We are “finking”  sensitive, feeling, your tummy will tell you. That’s Emotional Intelligence we need .

It’s more like Em & M’s.

MERCURY, the ruler of GEMINI and those 5 featured “planets” was also known as HERMES in Greek.  Mercury is the patron god of financial gain, comMERCe, also his name is in the word MERCenary. He  rules eloquent speech and  poetry, messages/communication , including divination, travelers, boundaries, luck, trickery and thieves. Busy he is, as he is a  Psychopomp, a  guide for souls into the Underworld. 

 Mercury God Astrology Tara Greene

Mercury, like HERMES wears lovely winged shoes and a winged  hat, and carries a caduseus, a staff with two entwined snakes that the Sun God Apollo gifted him. This is the same symbol modern Doctor’s use, it is a symbol of Kundalini-snake energy, and the major chakra’s – which have 3 channels. Mercury is also a healer. He was often accompanied by a rooster, a ram or goat, for action and fertility, and a tortoise, as Mercury invented the ancient musical instrument the lyre from a tortoise shell.

So all of MERCURY”S aspects and talents would be involved in any GEMINI {or VIRGO} lunar influence.

BIG T- BIRD  SQUARE  featuring MERCURY URANUS PLUTO

This NEW MOON carries an undertow wallop as MERCURY- who leads the pack at 11 degrees Cancer is opposed to Pluto Retrograde at 10 degrees Capricorn and square to Uranus at 12 degrees ARIES. We need to bring our souls, actions, ideas and feelings into harmony. The outlet of the T is the invisible opposite at 10-12 degrees LIBRA.  We may find what we begin on this NEW MOON bears fruit in the Fall when the Sun or other planets cross that point. If you have planets, angles, etc. at any of these CARDINAL points ,use this time to bring your mind into your gut feelings. BIG changes are happening for you, you know it in your gut.

Mars and Athena square Neptune urging you to intuit your dreams, Athena’s totem is the wise owl sits on her shoulder. Pay close attention to your dreams.

We are moving from AIR signs into WATER the summer of 2013.

The NEW MOON features the ongoing GRAND WATER TRINES of SATURN in Scorpio Neptune in Pisces and VENUS in Cancer.

The NEW MOON conjuncts RIGEL the brightest Star in the constellation of ORION, the 6th brightest star in the skies. Rigel facilitates the integration of spirit within matter, like the myth of the hero twins of GEMINI to connect head and heart.

RIGEL is know world-wide as a navigation star. 

On the NEW MOON- GENDER BLENDER

You must get a sense that you and the “opposite sex” can transform and  become ONE, the other, that is the only way to be able to love. When you love yourself you can love another, and allow yourself to be loved.

Visualize your consciousness blending equally with your heart. This is NEW consciousness, blended, balanced. heart and mind. Mind divides, but mind and heart is balanced. THINK from your heart.

Put on your winged hat and shoes and fly around busy open, opstimistic, ever curious.

6th sense,comets,meteorites,Cosmic MESSENGERS, Pope less Astrology from Tara Greene

Meteorites and comets, there will be a  huge bright comet in the fall of 2013.

All of these outer space rocks are symbolic harbingers and prophets that were mentioned by the Hopi.

Comets always coincided with major changes in POWER and we are POPE LESS right now.

Bright naked eye comet Bright Comet Pan-Starrs (C/2011 L4) visible in Australia now

March 4, 2013 – SPACE – Bright Comet Pan-Starrs (C/2011 L4) is now inside the orbit of Mercury, brightening as it plunges toward the sun. Observers in the southern hemisphere report say they can see Pan-STARRS with the unaided eye in the evening sunset sky. Carl Gruber photographed the comet on March 2nd over the city lights of Melbourne, Australia: “Despite bad light and smog pollution, the comet’s nucleus was clearly visible to the naked eye as well as a small part of the tail,” says Gruber. Light curves show the comet is approaching 2nd magnitude, about as bright as the stars of the Big Dipper. Several important dates are approaching. On March 5th, Comet Pan-STARRS makes its closest approach to Earth (1.09 AU), followed on March 10th by its closest approach to the sun (0.3 AU). As Comet Pan-STARRS passes the sun, solar glare will make it difficult to see even as the nucleus vaporizes and brightens. By March 12th and 13th, the comet will reappear in the sunset skies of the northern hemisphere not far from the crescent Moon. –Space Weather

The comet will cross into Northern Latitudes around March 12 and will be visible early in the am. 

Walking my dog last night  in Toronto, I saw Jupiter directly in line with Aldebraran Michael’s Fixed Star, the bull’s eye. Jupiter is in Sidereal Taurus but Tropical Gemini.  That’s what I miss the most about not living in Arizona or even being up in Northern Ontario, seeing the Milky Way overhead, clothing the black night sky with a cloak of diamonds.

Something is definitely up, the universe is in a  synchonous reverberation with us, throwing pebbles at us to get our attention.

With this  very rare 6 planets PISCES alignment, the COSMIC MESSAGE is to USE your 6th sense

TELEPATHY ! HUNCHES! INTUITION! DREAMS !

Communing in ONENESS, healing, compassion, forgiveness, knowing that we are intrinsically interconnected to the Universe.

 We are made up of star dust,  the iron in our blood came from deep space explosions, We are the stars.

All the PISCES energy is a cosmic baptism. Aren’t you feeling WOOZY?

I felt  tipsy today, I know that ‘s the magnetic energy of the earth shifting, and higher frequency energies tuning in. I felt the angels,  the presence of the TALL BEINGS OF LIGHT as Stuart Wilde calls them. They’re about 10 feet tall,have long white wings,and speak telepathically, they are very peaceful, solemn and bring a feeling of grace. 

WHERE are those 6 cosmic tuning forks aligning in your natal chart? IN what house and making what kind of aspects?

A client of mine had 4 planets in Virgo in the 11th house. She was asking about relationships. The Pisces overflow energies were directly opposite her SUN MOON VENUS MERCURY in the 5th house traditionally known for LOVE AFFAIRS, children, creative self- expression, will , giving love, leadership. A  LEO patina overlays every 5th house irregardless of what sign is on the cusp or inside of it.

WHERE are those 6 cosmic tuning forks aligning in your natal chart? IN what house and making what kind of aspects?

How are 6 Pisces planets exploding your 6th sense?  Your personal communion with SOURCE

ARE YOU FREAKED OUT?
