Test by fire or desire.

The Moon is in sensuous earthy Taurus Aug 22-24 and we feel more grounded. August 23 is a day when the Bull has us by the horns. The horns of the Bull have from ancient times symbolized the Goddess, Her worship and the Moon’s cycles of waxing and waning itself.
Taurus,Astrology, Mythology Tara Greene
The Taurus Moon inconjuncts {150 degree aspect} both MARS and SATURN.
Taurus moon mooves slowly plodding along, needing safety, security, and a solid guarantee that its’ creature comforts will be met. Taurus, a Fixed sign, dislikes changes.
Burning mad, aggressive warrior MARS in fiery Sagittarius and heavy, serious SATURN, the planet of karma and death, in Sagittarius are the Swords/ Wands, of Truth. Thes planets are the apex of the Bullfighter’s aggressive, stabs at the moments of destiny for the fighter or the Bull.

2 of swords, Tarot of the Ages                 2 of Wands, Path of Life Tarot
What will this moment of truth and justice hold for you? We are both the mythological Minotaur, the half human-half Bull creature who symbolizes the bestial, animalistic, selfish, “eat or be eaten” survival mode parts of ourselves. The human half is our higher conscious, ethical and compassionate ability to think and reason mind. The Mythological Minotaur eats anyone who comes into the Labyrinth which is on the greek Island of Crete.  
We are also the Bullfighter archetype; the heroic macho stylized killer who outwits the savage beast. The unfortunate bull is sacrificed to prove human superiority over the wild beastly parts of ourselves. Psychologically and compassionately this is a very bad playing out of “good” versus “evil.”  It is extremely narcissistic, archaic and creates needless suffering for a poor beast. The crowds are bloodthirsty and revel in very low-level vibrations at the spectacle. Often the bullfighters get gored and are seriously wounded or killed during the fight. There aren’t very many bullfights left in the world.  Sagittarius is a fire sign and the 2 of wands suits this planetary picture now.
Taurus moon sextiles Neptune in PISCES
Let that Bull go and enjoy his life, grazing, procreating and smelling the roses, like Ferdinand. Compassion rules. Release the bulls, let them roam free. Let our own simple animal instincts be free as well.
A very powerful Sensuous EARTH trine from Moon to PLUTO crowns the day. 
This aspect encourages us to really enjoy life on the physical plane. This is the Garden of Eden, Taurus Moon helps us to really enjoy its earthly delights.
Pluto is Lord of Riches, eat well, slowly, noticing every taste and texture. Slow down and smell the roses, notice the sensuality and vibration of everything around you. Indulge in beautiful things, massages, pure aromatherapy oils, fine wine, making love. Noticing how much beauty there is in nature, in the world and everywhere you look. 
REMEMBER on AUGUST 24 that MARS and SATURN conjunct at 9+ degrees SAGITTARIUS on ANTARES, This is One of the hardest most bad-ass aspects there is. More sooner. Squared by NEPTUNE in PISCES. You gotta have FAITH.

Mercury in Cancer, things to do

Astrologer heed thy own advice!  Yes, don’t try to get anything done in a hurry under a Mars Retrograde! My husband has been attempting to renovate a bathroom in our house since the end of April. It’s been non-stop interruptions, and the typical Retrograde returns, the wrong bathtub was delivered, then the wrong tiles, plus we keep changing our minds about what we want. So glad Mars turns Direct tomorrow. Let’s get this job done already.

Unfortunately, as predicted with Mars being very powerful as it changes direction and turns direct, the terrorist attack at the Istanbul airport was one last Mars Retrograde  attack. Sending blessings to those who were killed and their families, plus the hundreds injured. 

June 29 Mercury enters CANCER to blend our mental chatter and our conversations with our feelings. We are analyzing through an emotional filter and feelings will be more tender, sentimental, receptive and nurturing.  While Mercury is in Cancer with Venus and the Sun, Mars in Scorpio and Athena, Neptune, the South Node and Chiron in Cancer-that’s a lot of water element planets. The upcoming July 4th New Moon in Cancer features all of these planets including the Moon-that’s 9 planets/asteroids in water, article coming soon.

While Mercury is in Cancer June 29- July 13th  things to do:

Cancer is the First Cardinal Water sign of the mother and children, it is the sign ruled by the moon.  Cancer is MOM, families, home, our roots, ancestors, our moods, our emotional security needs, literally where we live,  our emotional grounding, our early childhoods, our tummies, what we nurture and how we nourish ourselves or not.  Real estate, food and endings are also Cancerian 4th house energies. This is the sign/ house of privacy, symbolic midnight, the womb, everyone’s source. 

TO DO –

Have lots of family dinners, house parties, BBQ,’s happy family gatherings, get togethers, gatherings and generally lots of good eating. FOODIES rejoice. Cancer energy is all about the tummy’s fulfillment. 

Artemisia Gentileschi’s oil painting Madonna and Child 1616-18

This is very fertile energy if you are trying to get pregnant. Or give birth to anything metaphorically speaking. 

Think about your Mother, Cancer is the Mother, your relationship with her which is primary to every human on the earth. We are our mother’s my Tibetan Buddhist teacher impressed on me. Understand that you are your mother, by virtue of having been part of everything in her life as well as her mother cellularly is phenomenal. Think about that. I know it drove me crazy for years. It is so hard to accept that we are our mothers. The Earth is our mother too. Think about all the billions of women who have given birth to every person who has ever lived. What is the state of women in the world today? 

Your stomach may be more sensitive while Mercury is in Cancer. It’s a good time to watch how meditation calms your nerves and tummy. Also be aware that you are what you eat. It’s a good time to change your diet and eat what feels good and nourishes you, not what you want to eat, or just enjoy. 

Mercury in Cancer is literally about digesting, How much info are you actually digesting in the overflow of info these days? If you are feeling overwhelmed perhaps its a good time for a fast. Just as it is healthy to take a break from eating to allow the body to rest and heal itself even for a day, it could be beneficial to take an info break too. Research shows that people are addicted to their smart phones. It’s a holiday weekend coming up in America and Canada as it is both countries Birthdays. Take a break from your phone. Millennials  don’t know life without cellphones the way us oldsters do. Just give your brain and your tummy a rest. 

FAMOUS CELEBRITIES WITH MERCURY IN CANCER

Diana, Princess of Wales,  Nicole Kidman, Natalie Portman, Lana del Ray, Pamela Anderson, Ariana Grande, Gisele Bundchen, Angela Merkel, Jessica Simpson, Khloe Kardashian, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, Iman, Judy Garland, 

MEN 

Donald Trump!- real estate, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Tom Hanks, Psychoanalyst Dr. Carl Jung, Harrison Ford, Chris Evans, Stanley Kubrick, O.J. Simpson, Bill Cosby, Michael J. Fox, David Duchovny, Will Ferrell, 

The Moon is in TAURUS June 29-July 1st. 

The mood becomes slower, more stable and cautious when the Moon is in Taurus. It is time to simply enjoy being in the Garden of Eden of this beautiful planet and to enjoy our physical senses and the beauty all around us. 

These are largely feminine energy days- the Moon transits Gemini from July 1-3rd but then we will  be literally swimming on the July 4th New Moon watery elemental flood which continues until July 10. Do expect lots of rain and flooding.

There is one difficult aspect on the 29th moon inconjuncts Saturn in Sagittarius. 

if you are too stubborn or overly cautious you may miss an opportunity to travel, to discover something new or to test your faith in yourself.

Energies are intense, getting grounded weekend

I was hearing from other psychics that everyone was feeling really exhausted for the last 48 hours. Have you been feeling really exhausted, nauseous or dizzy?

Yes The Mars Saturn energy were intense. How did you feel it?

I was feeling fine all day Thursday May 14. I went on a very lovely MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR birthday event for a very special lady.

The original MMT the free for all LSD inspired surreal film by the Beatles premiered on November 27 1967. Interestingly enough Venus was at 18 degrees of LIBRA on that date. Uranus is now exactly opposite to that at 18 degrees of ARIES. There’s something happening here.

The album and film contained some great songs including All You Need Is Love, I am The Walrus and Strawberry Fields Forever written by John Lennon and Penny Lane, Fool On The Hill and Hello Goodbye by Paul McCartney.  

the Beatles tara Greene

I was hired to read tarot cards on the magical tour bus which took 35 ladies to Prince Edward County near Picton and the famous Sandbanks park.

The Drake Hotel Tara greene

They invited me to have lunch with them at the new Drake Devonshire Hotel outpost which is really beautiful. The birthday lady was beautiful, fabulous as was her famous sister too.

But right after I finished reading I came back and i felt totally exhausted. I started crying once I cam home. I was feeling nausea and horrible. I went to bed. I was dreaming about trying on hats and Ed Sheeran made an appearance in my dream, he does get around these days. 

I felt sick and dizzy when i woke up. My husband has felt it too. We both get this from coronal mass ejections and the weirdness which is going on from CERN. You need to be aware of how they are messing with the magnetics of the earth! I am very sensitive to this stuff. I went on FB and a friend of mine messaged me saying hey all the psychics I know are feeling totally exhausted and can’t figure out why.

there is very heavy stuff going on out there, psychic shields UP at all times. 

 May 16

the Moon has entered TAURUS. thats good I felt that Mars Saturn opposition.  How did it feel to you?  Taurus moon is very grounding.  Taurus is ruled by Venus and loves all things sensuous, valuable, luxurious. Taurus is earthy, stubborn, resourceful. My daughter showed my this pic earlier and I thought it was funny. The energy is pretty light and positive today after the early morning Moon inconjunct to Saturn. It’s alright as long as you remember to stay positive.

I will be doing the water blessings healing ceremony in the afternoon at 2:48 pm EDT please join in and do your own and send the blessings out to all the people.

MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR- The Beatles  

bye Aries, hello Taurus, Inspirational Daily

Aries and Taurus Astrology Tara Greene

April 19 under a sensual earthy Taurus Moon we are at the 29th critical degree of Aries today and you know what that means. Bye bye Aries Ram , you seem to have flown by in a  shiny red sports car.

 The Sol’s power is the highest energetically at this degree. We need to integrate those Aries lessons, too much spontaneity gets you in trouble on Instagram or Twitter Michael Buble. gets nothing finished, angry outburst also don’t work, impatience is a problem. Initiating, impatient, fiery, angry, demonstrative we’ve learned all about that. Its a major transition from Aries Cardinal fire, to earthy fixed Taurus. 

Sun enters Taurus Monday  April 20 @ 2:41 am PDT/ 5:41 am EDT.

In the Tarot Trumps TAURUS is the #5 The Hierophant, Pope or High Priest 

Hierophant #5 Tarot Tara Greene

Cathy McClelland Tarot Trump #5 

I love this non-traditional but really beautiful Hierophant. The Hiero, means higher but I also see hero in the origin. This is a very cosmically in tune High Priest with a labyrinth,a Native peace pipe, a crystal wand, the rainbow robes, the Holy spirit, the Hebrew letters,the tefillin on his arm, and many feminine symbols the lilies and roses, and the Taurus bull and the Bear with a lightning bolt on its forehead. I’m going to meditate with this image. 

In the meantime on Sunday : Mercury in Taurus sextiles and Venus in GEMINI squares NEPTUNE today in the wee hours.  This could be a sexy sensual night, with two talking image glam illusion, fantasy projection addictions of Neptune party on down. Be carefull of not being slipped drugs or overdoing as your judgement is off. .

Moon is super active: Sextiles Neptune early a.m. – hangover, fuzzy dawn. 

Moon conjunct Mercury,-lets get physical, body talk.

Moon square Jupiter in Leo, loud, proud, big-hearted, have an afternoon party.

Moon conjunct Mars, – this is a bullfight , stubborn, stubborn, locked horns, go bull riding, or watch a rodeo. Couch potato-ish too. you will want to be active, walking in nature, or running for a good cause. 

Moon trine Pluto – feeling strong now. Cue: the Rocky theme.

Moon  sextile Chiron – can be after shame if you went overboard last night.

Astrology answers, a reader’s chart by Tara Greene

A reader asked me to look at her Astrology chart and give her some feedback. I decided to put it up here.

Female N.C. Born March 7 1984 in 6:49 am Chicago

astrology answers Tara Greene

As a PISCES she is a very spiritual, highly sensitive, dreamy, psychic sponge, creative charitable, chameleon. With a LOT of 12th house, Pisces natural home, influence. The 12th house is the most secret, the house of the Unconscious, self- undoing, secret-enemies, spiritual, karmic, compassionate, blissful, addictions, institutions, film, creativity.  Pisces always root for the underdog, and are usually martyrs unless they have other very strong aspects in their charts. She wants to help everyone. There is often addictions issues in the family or herself. 

LOTS of WATER emphasis, emotions. She has three planets in Scorpio. Not much Fire. 

She also has Mercury conjunct the Sun, 1 degree away. Her mind and her SELF/ego/no self in PISCES, are one. Extends her natural PSYCHIC intuitive abilities. Mercury is considered to be “combust” in Western astrology, burned out by the SUN’s rays. It may cause her to hide your intelligence,{12th house}  and can be misdiagnosed as ADD or some such similar issue.  A person who analyzes intuitively, a researcher, she may work behind the scenes in institutions. 

She has VENUS in AQUARIUS in the 12th conjunct Asteroid ATHENA, very wise, detached in love. VENUS in the 12th is hidden love,unconscious love, spiritual  IDEAL DIVINE love. She may not feel safe coming out of the closet of the Unconscious. She may feels that she came from a different Universe. She loves everyone but in a detached way. She loves the entire Universe. Up close and personal may be hard to do. She is an independent woman, a lover of freedom, new ideas, technology. She is inventive in love, a good organizer and manager.  She could have Secret love affairs, dream lovers. She loves people who are quirky, different, unique, offbeat. A woman with different values that sets her apart. She may work in a male dominated environment.   

Her MOON is in the 1st house. She IS her emotions, her mother, her sensuality, her body. She is a persistent, very down to earth Taurus. She needs that Moon in Taurus, it keeps her from being such a PISCES 12th house emphasis space cadet. Give your Taurus Moon regular massages. She feels things very sensually and revels in this earthly Garden of Paradise. She is very stubborn. She has big appetites for sex, money, food, power. She needs stability a lot. Taurus Moon is associated with physical tools, resources, money, Real estate, hands in the earth, creativity, could be artistic, a musician. THINGS make her moods stabilize. 

Moon Opposite PLUTO Retrograde in Scorpio in the 7th, THIS IS INTENSE. This aspect is PLUTONIC, Scorpionic, always bringing huge emotional upheavals,life and death, rebirth, huge soul shock waves. Depression can be a life long  battle. She intimidates her partners. Her soul is bound to be in relationships with everyone she has been with before.  As much as she would like to stay safe in her Pisces spirit womb, she is hell bound to be out in the world in relationships. She can attract dangerous, deceitful, users, power trippers. Very sexual. She can be very demanding and fail for spite depending on her relationship with her mother. There can be sexual and emotional abuse in her life. Pluto is the ruler of Scorpio and exerts more power.  Huge will power, fixed, in an unconscious Scorpio she can use people and discard them at will. This can be a passive aggressive issue. Remember she is a PISCES first.

This is a great aspect for psychologists, social workers, therapists, astrologers, counsellors. You do everything at 200% lots of Scorpio energy. A great detective and researcher. YOU can make anything happen when you decide what that is..

SATURN in Scorpio RETROGRADE Opposite the Moon

Saturn conjunct MARS in Scorpio, rules the 8th sign/house. Mars squares VENUS.

Also very karmic. Difficulty in love in relationships. She came her to feel everything very very intensely. Her soul craves this. It’s is hard,her refuge is in SPIRIT. If she deals with death then her PISCES SUN knows that all is impermanent. Everything is connected.She just has to remember, forgiveness, compassion.

Saturn opposite the Moon

is a difficult birth, could be a lifer or death struggle with Mother and child at her own birth Not sure she really wanted to be here. The Father was very strict or not there. Difficult traumas with dad, and authority. Life is depressing, hard work. Parents split up. She was probably  very shy as a child. She needed to keep her feelings in check. She was put down by older siblings.  Money is an issue. Poverty consciousness. I can’t feel what I feel. Big emotional traumas. Sexual abuse. Self worth, trust issues. 

Mars in Scorpio conjunct Saturn-the two malefic planets. 

Karmic difficulty with men, sexuality, authority, finding purpose, Goals. Could be very very angry. The 8th house is secrets. I feel definite sexual abuse, by daddy or male figures. Lots of power if she can heal herself. Very driven. Huge desires. Needs to work on herself on her own emotions first. The 8th house is the house of money, she could work in finances, taxes. Constant break down and regeneration. I believe that everyone chooses their parents their time of birth everything form the soul’s perspective before incarnating. My sense is that very spiritual people take on the hardest aspects in their astrology charts. They are incredibly strong. 

She is a very old soul who came into this life to take on a lot of emotional issues. It’s not easy but offers the most opportunity for transcendence. She can escape from a harsh reality by daydreaming, creating or drugging out. The power is always out there. She needs to learn to own her own feelings. She has to be careful with substance abuse. But Pisces have no boundaries and she was forced to shut down at a very early age.

Mars opposite Chiron Venus square CHIRON at 28 degrees TAURUS conjunct JUNO in the 2nd house.

This is the mark of the wounded healer. She has taken on all of this intense emotional soulful destruction heavy emotions to heal herself and transcend. As she heals herself she can heal others. SATURN MARS PLUTO in Scorpio is extremely strong-willed. 

Chiron conjunct the Pleiades – incredible depths of sadness, very spiritual. Juno at 25 degrees Taurus is Feminine genius. In the 2nd house this is her Jewels. Her body knowledge. Her gut instincts. Her fortune. She is a very highly evolved spiritual soul.

NEPTUNE  Conjunct JUPITER in Capricorn in the 10th

Neptune rules her Pisces Planets in modern astrology and Jupiter rules them in traditional. People with 10th house planets have a great desire to be known in the world in their careers.  This is hugely spiritual, very very creative. She dreams of conquering the world, changing the way business works. Jupiter is BIG, International, corporations in Capricorn. The spiritual teacher, could be yoga teacher. Neptune is idealistic, ephemeral. She could be a great creative director, drama, art, dance, music, teacher, human resources person. She dreams big concrete practical dreams.

URANUS in Sagittarius is square to the Sun in the 9th

Jupiter rules her Uranus. She is thirsting for metaphysical, teachings, a revolutionary in education, legal matters, phiosophy. She aims for Universal truth, higher truth. She is very ethical. She can be erratic, chaotic. Freedom is vitally important to her. 

HER NORTH NODE is in GEMINI at 10 degrees in the 3rd

She need to be open minded, develop her curiosity, she is a communicator. She is very charming, hard for her to make up her mind, settle down. A butterfly. 

South Node is in Sagittarius conjunct her Uranus squaring LILITH in PISCES.

In past lives, she has been a great teacher, a metaphysician, a brilliant thinker whose ideas broke with tradition. She shook up the establishment, the Church or other established tradition and was probably burned at the stake. She was righteously indignant. She has strong past life memories. Unconsciously she is a very strong woman, independent,refusing to bow down to any man, or compromise her own feelings. 

This astrology software shows she has her Ascendant and all of her cusps at the very important ZERO degrees of all Solstices and Equinoxes. A huge power set up. 

TRANSITS

She has just had her first pass of her first Saturn Return. She will be in this energy all through 2014. Saturn in EXACTLY conjunct her Mars right now. A very difficult time. She is probably feeling desperate. Therapy is strongly indicated to help her understand and own her own stuff and name her perpetrators. Saturn goes Retrograde March 2 and Turns Direct at 16 degrees Scorpio exactly on her Saturn on July 20. So she should take this time to heal herself. Step away from old family karma. This is a difficult time as it is for everyone coming into their own, taking responsibility, truly individuating.

8th house Money may be a big issue.  Be careful to do your taxes. Do everything according to the letter. Sex can be dangerous.  She can attract violence to her if she doesn’t thoroughly clean up her own issues. This can manifest as  trouble with her mother,female siblings or  women in general. This can also manifest as an unwanted child,or an emotional burden. The money issues may be over shared resources, a home, property or inheritance, taxes and the like.  

The upside of the heavies is a possibility of a serious commitment in love but not easily. Saturn will again cross her Mars in Late October November into mid December 2014.She needs to work hard on herself preparing for rebirth.

ALso she has been under Pluto crossing her Jupiter in the last 2 years which can be a huge shift in career, direction, long term goals, education, usually very positive but world rocking.  Uranus has been squaring Jupiter  up till recently, and Jupiter opposing it. Lots of chaos in her life.

It will start to simmer down now. so she can deal with her first Saturn return.

JUPITER is giving her GRAND WATER TRINES to her SUN MERCURY SATURN and MARS.

Again maybe too much of a good thing? Optimizes change. 

Jupiter in LEO will square her Pluto and her Ascendant in late July. This will bring positive energy, passion, leadership and new direction. Jupiter will square her Moon in late August.  Jupiter is the  great benefactor and is traveling through her 5th house of love affairs, children, self expression, will power and leadership over this year. Things will improve then, life will get easier.  You may decide to make a big move or go back to school. Jupiter gives you a new persona. Get a total make over.

This  person have great psychic gifts. If she’s  never explored them now is the time. You are coming into your own domain to live life on your own terms. You have so much power. Use it wisely.

Blessings

Inspirational Card of the Day- having one of THOSE days

June 5 card of the day – Minor card

5 of SWORDS

5 of swords Tarot

Wildwood Tarot

 

All of the #5’s are difficult challenging, frustrating, they are smack in the middle of 1-10.

Five’s dont’ feel good, but all is not lost.

I notice we are on the 5th day of June.

Swords, arrows, knives are always the element of AIR, thoughts, mind, consciousness.

I looked through many an image of the 5 of Swords and all of them have titles like Defeat, Frustration, etc.

Well sometimes we come to these mental blocks…writer’s block, bad hair day, headaches, frustration, exhaustion in the head,

Lots of kids are cramming for exams,,, it’s in the air, picking up other people’s negativity, 

and too much critiquing of your self,

Run out of ideas, drawing a blank, can’t remember where I put… brain fart… lost train of thought

and mentally wandering up and down the wrong alleyways.

Stop trying to convert or arguing with people who can’t or won’t hear you.

“sucks to be you” as my teenager daughter would say.

All tangled up in the barbed wire of your own mind has left you feeling “ARGGHHHH”

stop pushing, there are limits.

MEANING

Do you really want to be thinking about, doing, engaged in THIS?

Whatever your THIS Is. Stop and drop it. You can’t think about this anymore.

Drop it. Sink down into your solar plexus. Feel your “orrende” your spiritual centre.

This is where your mind/will belongs. Not in your head. Place your thoughts there just below your navel.

Breathe in deeply 5 times. Feel the tension slip away.

Just let it go, it will pass.  A test of your mental resolve.

my mouse froze while I was trying to get this out.

Good thing there was easy apects today and Moon in Taurus
