Saturn direct mercurial Sunday

Yes Saturn is DIREDT! Ahhh, one less Retrograde planet down. I made a decision I’d been putting off for ages just before Saturn’s station.

Sunday Aug 2

Moon’s in the flow in Pisces. The spiritual, sensitive, compassionate, creative flow. So go with that flow.

Moon conjoins Neptune its ruling planet  in the morning hours. a good day, a God day for meditation we are still in that Blue moon effluence.

Moon and Sun inconjunct

Leo SUN ego is center stage and all about me. Moon in Pisces is, all about US, ONE. like fire and water they don’t mix but they can learn from each other.

Mercury is trining Uranus

for a great day to blast open your mind, group think, revolutionary thoughts, breaking free, chaos.

Mercury is inconjunct to Chiron in Pisces

be careful what you reveal today as the mentalscape is “who cares about you.” as far a Mercury in Leo is concerned. There may even manifest as spiritual one up manship, like you know; I’ve done, more healing work, workshops, more crises, more diseases, more ayahuasca, cleansed for 50 days, never ever ate anything white, gluten has not passed my lips in 5 years, I can bench press 300 with my little pinky.

This too shall pass.

Pisces moon sextiles Pluto later in the day.

Past lives, karma, spiritual experiences are a good theme. Soul survival, walking on broken glass, lucid dreams, all major imaginings of the day.

the Mountain Lion

with all the word wide furor over Cecil the Lion being murdered illegally by that American dentist in stalks the Mountain Lion, or cougar, the lion of  North America.

The #17 came up in my Blue Full Moon Aquarius Meditation. According to the Kabbalah the number 17 is ruled by Venus. Uranus, Aquarius’s ruling planet has just gone Retrograde and will turn Direct Christmas day at the 17th degree. Every 17th degree is considered to be under Venus’ rulership in any sign. Seventeen is a number of looking for the spiritual Light in every sign.

17 = 1 + 7 = 8. 2015 = 8/ Eight turned on its side is INFINITY> 888 is coming up, I will write about that.

Mountain Lion has shown up today to show you about the use of power in positions of  leadership. Mountain lion brings the gifts of grace, stealth, intention, physical strength, patience, stalking and instinctual knowledge.  The Mountain lion is quiet and only roars as a defense. Mountain lion balances body mind and spirit. 

The first responsibility with leadership is to tell the truth.

Taurus New Dark Moon, healing the demons

A Taurus New Moon brings out our laziness and that is why I am a bit late here this month.

NEW MOON May 17 @ 9:13 pm /May 18 @ 12:13 a.m. EDT/ 4:13 am GMT @ 26 + degrees of Taurus 

It is an INtense sensual in the body New Moon, with a wicked kick of potential healing and exorcising of fear around women’s sexuality and awakening Kundalini energy. We are riding the bull and riding the snake. Note Taurus and Scorpio opposition.

Kundalini Yoga Tara Greene astrology

All New Moon’s are new intentions. We are back where it all began in the dark VOID of all potential.

New Moons were traditionally the time for all women to be menstruating in the world.  Before electric lights threw women’s natural rhythms off, women always bled in synchronicity with the Moon’s cycles. All the women were gathered  in the Red tent, the moon lodge, yurt, cave or temple. This was the holiest of holy times. The word Tabu originally meant sacred. The women would bleed onto their mother the earth giving back the life-giving blood which creates all life.  

The New Moon is exactly on the star with the blackest reputation of all  ALGOL, Medusa’s head. A very DARK delicious New MOON indeed. This star symbolizes the patriarch’s greatest fear of women’s sexuality, of her sacred menstrual blood and her erotic power to destroy a man’s ego with sacred sexuality.  Which is what he fears and what he needs most to touch soul.

Fixed star expert Diana K. Rosenberg says the star is associated with ” Violence, beheading, hanging, choking, asphyxiation, electrocution, murder, mob violence.” so be aware of this over the next month.

This very physical Taurus New Moon will take us deep into the darkness of the caves within ourselves where we create our own realities. We will have to battle the shadow, the monster, the dragon, the Gorgon, our personal shadows in whatever form it manifests.

Medusa was originally an Amazon warrioress from Lybia. Her dreadlocks or snakes symbolize  her spiritual or Kundalini transformative powers. Women warriors were fighting back against the advancing Patriarchy. 

KUNDALINI energy

This sacred force which rises form the base of the spine up the chakras to the head awakens cosmic consciousness. This powerful regenerative force has always been symbolized by a snake and many cultures revered -or like Christianity and Judaism feared snakes for this reason. Kundalini energy clears old traumas, and brings enlightenment. Sacred sexuality, symbolized by the snakes was the major initiation path that men received in the Holy Temples of the Goddess, which all women served at before they married. Especially after war this rite was Holy to clear the men from profane bloodshed which we now call P.T.S. D. into sacredness and oneness again.

Read my articles on awakening Kundalini energy on the Cosmic Intelligence Agency site

Algol has many symbols yet she has a Saturn- Jupiter ruling. This star also has positive attributes. Capulus the star proceeding Algol is the handle of the sword which Perseus used to cut off the demons head. But if you know the story it was using the mirror which enabled Perseus to get close enough to slay the demon. ALgol is not Lillith do not get them confused.

The name Algol comes from the Arabic for ghoul or demon. It also means alcohol which Muslims are forbidden to drink. As Psychologist Carl Jung realized the word alcohol or spirit is the same name as spirituality. The soul speaks in metaphors and puns as it does in dreams.The thirst for alcohol to quench emotional pain is an outer bandage against the pain when what the soul needs to heal is spiritual healing.

Algol points out our need to escape from pain through drugs, TV, sex, money power, shopping, whatever your drug of choice is. That escapism is fear and a refusal to listen to the inner pain for the soul’s cry for healing and redemption by the Source. 

With Mercury turning Retrograde May 18 we will definitely be looking back, looking inwards.

Use this New Moon to Full Moon time to

ensure that you are in your body and that your heads are not separated from our entire beings. Taurus energy is brave and we can ride the bull to stubbornly face our shadows, by seeing them reflected everywhere. By doing the great work we will be less critical, rejecting, racist, and we can learn to give the demon the love it is truly needing. We will learn to love ourselves as or neighbour.

Women need to embrace their sacred menstrual blood and their bleeding times as Holy, to be in their bodies. The modern Red Tent movement is hugely successful as it reminds woman of what they need to be whole.  Start at this New Moon.

 Mercury Retrograde is square Neptune 

this is the perfect time to see how faded out people are. How little you are in touch with your body instincts and reality and to change this.

Mars in Gemini is also square Neptune

We can use the sharpness of Mars in our minds to cut through the denial and deal with our addictions.

Venus opposite PLUTO over the next week is very powerful.

Unconscious family power struggles erupting, secret love affairs, passion, erotic fantasy, healing in the family, tenderness or power? Women struggling against the patriarchal structures.. Passive-aggressive. Stock market can be erratic. 

Jupiter is Trine to URANUS 

this is innovative, rebellious, high-tech, courage, over-confident,but also brings confident to be your own unique individual.

Mars is still opposite Saturn

so tread lightly. It is also  involved in a large T- square of Sun conjunct Mars opposite Saturn square Neptune. 

This aspect can be very positive and creative. It will be a challenge to stay on your highest heights. 

GRAND AIR TRINE

North Node to Ceres in Aquarius to Mars/Mercury 

CERES is the great Mother and all heroes pledged fealty to HER. The north node in Libra calls for equality, fairness, balance, judiciousness, wise thinking and a big overview.

As a re-initiated Snake Priestess I will use this New Moon to convene with my Inner snake Goddess, Lilith.  See video by my teacher Kathleen

This is a powerful New Moon of transformation of shedding the old skins, of bravery, solid courageousness, plodding the earth in search of beauty, sensuality and creativity. 

Nourish your body, and your soul. Set new long-term intentions for  6 months from now.

SNAKE YOGA by Kathleen Graham

Inspirational card of the Day,how’s your reputation? Macbeth,DMT, from Tara Greene

Inspurrational card of the day June 13

Since I had a lucid dream last night about a TOAD becoming my spirit animal

I felt compelled to check my Jamie Sam’s Animal Medicine Cards today

Skunk Animal medicine cards

Yes SKUNK MEDICINE 

I’ve written about Skunk medicine before.  SKUNK medicine, or power is not STINKY at all. 

In fact you could see it as a pun on Instincts. 

SKUNK medicine is very powerful and good because the skunk is known by its reputation alone.

Skunks are actually very timid creatures, known by its powerful smell.  Most animals, and people avoid the near sighted creature. It’s reputation precedes it. 

SKUNK MEDICINE teaches you  to walk your talk and respect yourself in order to create a position of strength and an honored reputation. Like skunk there is no need to bully, posture, aggravate or provoke others to protect themselves. With skunk medicine, you radiate an energy of self- esteem which permeates your body and psychic  energy field. You emanate strength no matter how small you are.

MEANING

Learn to assert who you are without any need for ego, pride or other postures. Others will respect you as you respect yourself. How you treat others and the standards you keep is how you will be treated back. You will also repel those who are not on the same level of intent.

Skunk medicine is also sexual energy. Animals use scents to attract mates. Sexual energy is very powerful and  should be used only when it’s appropriate and not for playing games or for seeing how “attractive” you are.  Your reputation as to how you deal with your self as a sexual being is always very important, especially for women.

Notice what kinds of people are attracted to you. What you believe about yourself is your ultimate protection.

We used to have a mama skunk and her babies living underneath our  my husband’s art studio in our backyard. When I used to smoke cigarettes I would be out there at night and I ran into the baby skunk a few times, it was like a cartoon- we both jumped back. As I meant it no harm it just stared at me and slowly loped away. I felt blessed  to have a skunk nearby.

Don’t stink up the place and leave a bad smell, taste or reputation behind you.

More about TOAD medicine from my dear old friend Derek Robinson in B.C.

The toad’s the jewel in the skull .. witches of old europe like in Shakespeare’s “Toad, that under cold stone / Days and nights has thirty-one / Swelter’d venom sleeping got, / Boil thou first i’ the charmed pot” from Macbeth .. then there’s the sonoran desert toad whose skin venom contains large (as such things go) amounts of 5-Meo-DMT

see http://www.dmtsite.com/

DMT’s the dreaming drug produced in the pineal gland in the centre of the brain, very literally the third eye, like the living dinosaur New Zealand’s tuatara (yes!) still possesses in rudimentary form – “They are further unusual in having a pronounced photoreceptive eye dubbed the “third eye”, whose current function is a subject of ongoing research, but is thought to be involved in setting circadian and seasonal cycles.” sez wikipedia.

Andrew Weil gets the nod for scientifically pinning down the Sonoran desert toad cult, very likely Aztec & Mayan & more ancient shamanic devotees, there are these old mushroom stones from Mesoamerica with toads growing out of them.  

Funny that the NZ animal is called a TUATARA which is virtually the TARA MANTRA!!!!

So watch your dreams very carefully these day. The SATURN NEPTUNE GRAND TRINE will make them LUCIDLY real.  “waking up to the dream” seems to be the prevailing mood on planet earth about now
