Sacred sex, Fairy’s, Beltane, May Day, the New Masculine

April 30 tonight its time to go romping in the woods. It’s Walpurgis night, the night before May 1st, Beltane.

The VEIL BETWEEN THE WORLD’S ARE THINNEST just like at Halloween, the energy is the same.We are at the opposite pole of Death, this is the celebration of sexuality and Life.

The Faery Queen goes out a riding in the woods tonight.   It’s a magical bewitching  Night.

This is a special night of SACRED SEXUAL LIASONS.

Beltane fire sex pagan Celebration

Beltane  May 1st, is a traditional Fertility and Sacred Marriage Festival of the Sun to the Earth. It means “fire of Bel” or “bright fire” – the “bale-fire”. (English – bale; Anglo-Saxon bael; is the known as the bright and shinning one, a Celtic Sun God. Beli is the father, protector, and the husband of the Mother Goddess. The Bel fire is a sacred fire with healing and purifying powers. The ashes of the Beltane fires were smudged on faces and scattered in the fields. Household fires would be extinguished and re-lit with fresh fire from the Bel Fires.

THE MAY POLE/Phallic symbol

Dancing around the MAY POLE is a very ancient fertility celebration of the maiden Goddess and the horned god who would meet in the dark, make love as strangers, a young girl embodying the Goddess Divine and her young consort. He is Cernunos, PAN to the Greeks, the young virile, sexual, phallic God of fertility, the stag. Guys still have stag parties.  We are celebrating the Positive Goddess worshipping Strong hunter the Green Man. The Catholic Church made him into the Horny Devil. In the Tarot he is #15 the Devil .

The ancient had no morals on life’s necessities. Children conceived this night were considered magical and to belong to the realm of the FAIRY or Fey.  Couples would also take vows to be in relationships for a year and a day, sort of test driving a relationship to see if they are compatible.

It is considered unlucky to marry in MAY as this month is dedicated to the wedding of the GOD and the GODDESS alone.

PLEIADES

Beltane is marked in the Heavens as the rising of the Pleiades star cluster just before sunrise on the morning horizon, winter (Samhain/Halloween) begins when the Pleiades rises at sunset. The Pleiades is a cluster of seven closely placed stars, the seven sisters, in the constellation of Taurus, they can be easily seen with the naked eye. The Pleiades were very important to many ancient cultures worldwide. Some Native American tribes say that their Ancestors were Star Beings who came from the Pleiades. Many psychics channeled  the Pleiadians. I do too.

THE WHEEL OF TIME and our participation

The Ancients participated in Time’s unfolding, they believed that the Wheel of Time would not turn without human intervention. It is vitally important for us to reconnect and to honour these Ancient Nature Festivals, as we are so disconnected from the earth and the natural world. The modern world and all of its hi-tec tools disconnects us from Nature directly.  We may feel more like orphans than children of the earth. Not so long ago when we lived off the land, grew our own and harvested our own food we needed to be directly in touch with Mother Nature herself to survive. That will always be true.

If we’re not in Right Relationship with Nature then woe be to those who feel her wrath- and we have- Hurricane Katrina, tsunami’s, earthquakes, mudslides, drought, flooding etc. There was an old margarine commercial “It’s not nice to fool with Mother Nature” We’ve been coerced into fooling with Mother Nature even more with dangerous GMO seeds from Monsanto.

Another important Beltane custom is bathing in dew gathered before dawn on Beltane Morn, your beauty will flourish throughout the year. Sprinkled with the dew insures you of health and happiness. Drinking from the well before dawn of Beltane is also good luck.

THE HORNED GOD, is a powerful symbol and needs to be honored as a harbinger of the New masculine.

“If a man had been created in

the horned God’s image

he would be free to be wild,

without being cruel,

angry without being violent,

sexual without being coercive

spiritual without being unsexed,

and truly able to love. “– Starhawk, The Spiral Dance

MODERN RITUAL

If you can’t manage a bonfire, simply lighting a small fire will do. Intention is everything, so light a small fire in your home safely, write down what it is you want to dispel from your life and burn it in the flames. Or you could do a Jack be nimble Jack be quick and jump over a candle on the floor, very carefully for luck. If you are in a partnership cleanse it of disharmony, rekindle your vows. Drink water empowered with Love by focusing on sending love to even a glass of water or a pitcher of water, as Dr, Emoto. Empower the water with love and pour it on yourself your plants, your garden your threshold, your loved ones. Festoon your doorknobs with flowers, or hang flowers outside your home.

DANCE

Dancing around a Maypole may not be easily done these days, so simply imagine the May Pole the ancient boys and girls with the colored ribbons in their hands interweaving in and out to form the spiral pattern around the pole. Enjoy, celebrate, send prayers to the Sun and the Mother Earth. Dance with the Faeries, invite them into your home and your heart.

Participating with the thousands of neo-pagans, witches and all other indigenous people s at this time helps boost the energy. Left over Food from May 1st eve should be left out for the fairies.

Ed Sheeran Astrology chart from Tara Greene, Toronto

January 14, 2013 

Ed  Sheeran Creative Commons

My daughter Leah, 15 and I love music, pop music and classical music. She listened to classical music only till she was about 5 when she started to learn to play piano.  But she also listened to the Beatles at that time as I was huge Beatles fan. She turned me on to 22-year-old British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran’s music for over a year now. She has learned to play very interesting melodious versions of his hit songs on the electric piano.

Ed has come from relative obscurity here in North America with his first hit being the A team, Give Me love and Lego House, with Harry Potter star Rupert Grint playing Ed in the music video. He is currently on tour with Taylor Swift, the American country music cross over singer. He was nominated for a Grammy and sang with Sir Elton John on the broadcast, he is now mainstream in his popularity.

The flaming red-haired, bed head tattooed singer was formerly homeless. He is a high school dropout and has been recording and producing his own songs since he was 14. He seems to be the most down to earth unpretentious person you would want to meet, with a sweet voice, and an amazing range of song styles, he writes very beautiful lyrics and plays in a very simple folk singer style on a 3/4 size beat-up guitar.

He is in TORONTO for two days of concerts June 14 & 15. 

I am really enthralled with his music. I play it for adults who wouldn’t normally be exposed to it and they all love it too.

I feel Ed is the perfect example of the New Masculine, he is definitely masculine but with a very sensitive, emotional, tender heart-felt empathetic side. His Feminine side is very well-developed so he is balanced.  So lets check out his Astrology chart.

Ed SHEERAN ASTROLOGY CHART

click on chart to view larger

ED SHEERAN is an AQUARIAN born February 17 1991 in Halifax Great Britain. I have no birth time so use Noon for a public celebrity. 

His Sun at 28 degrees Aquarius shows an unconventional,  strong individual, independent, stubborn, a natural leader, but not an egotistical one, with high-minded ideals, a natural rebel he follows his own style. He is very bright, intellectual, analytical, a vessel of higher consciousness. Likes new technology, building structures, feels like he is part of the world tribe. 

The Moon representing his mother, who he is very close to, was in early ARIES at noon. But it could also have been in late Pisces is he has been born after midnight. The Moon is super important as it is the emotions, the unconscious, the feelings, instincts. I feel that he was born in the night and his Moon is in Pisces. It is the Moon at its most sensitive, intuitive, creative, spiritual, dreamy, and he has songs about drinking and Pisces is the sign of addictions. I’m not saying he is an alcoholic I’m just saying he is very sensitive and predisposed to having addictive types of behaviors, and he loves cats, very feminine felines. 

Mercury is in Aquarius so apply his communications style, thinking and reasoning and to his Aquarian self-expression. 

VENUS is in PISCES at 23 degrees this could also be where most of his creativity as a singer-songwriter comes from and his very Feminine energy. Pisces is the most spiritual sign, and rules all creative pursuits. Venus in Pisces people are largely reclusive and usually prefer to be anywhere but on the world’s stage. Spiritual, sensitive, imaginative, the Give Me love video shows a woman transformed into a CUPID angel. He is so emotive, an empath. I have to mention my fave song of Ed’s is SMALL BUMP, where he totally understands the feminine point of view.

Mars is in GEMINI so he is a fast thinker, talker, He raps very quickly. He is diverse in his styles, he is upbeat,  childlike, he loves to talk and communicate. I am sure he can be indecisive. This gives him charm galore, he is a pixie, with an impish grin.

JUPITER is RETROGRADE in LEO at 4 degrees

So this is why Ed is a performer, a strong fiery, passionate leader, this part of him expands on stage and in public, but he is also shy, and UN-egotistical. He has a big heart, which he wears on his sleeve. He loves children, is an actor playing roles. He loves cats- Leo the Lion. He loves to travel and learn through experience. Jupiter is opposite Saturn indicating he is nicely balanced, he works hard and plays hard.

SATURN represent the father, structure, karma. Saturn is at 1 degree Aquarius which it traditionally rules along with Uranus as modern ruler. This makes Ed a serious rebel. One whose task it is to raise people’s awareness. He will not be labeled. 

URANUS at 12 degrees Capricorn is conjunct NEPTUNE at 15 and this is a generational configuration.

Everyone born in the early 1990s has this aspect. It symbolizes revolutionizing big business, yet being part of it or at least understanding how it works but getting it to serve the collective and more spiritual goals. Ed has CHIRON the wounded healer opposite Neptune which is a transpersonal placement. He is a world server and a healer. Chiron in Cancer symbolizes a wounded child who is insecure, about home, safety, rejected by his parents. 

PLUTO is at 20 degrees SCORPIO

and square to his SUN. Ed’s chart is very simple with not very many difficult aspects. Although this one is. Pluto is the Soul the Unconscious, the shadow, power, control, secrets. He is very much acting from his soul’s urgings. IN SCORPIO this is the MOST EMOTIONALLY INTENSE and SOULFUL as Pluto is the Modern ruler of the 8th sign of sex, power, money, etc. Life is not easy with this aspect especially when unconscious. But he seems to be very strong and aware and this deep soulful aspect permeates his vitality and life force, the Sun.

Ed’s North Node is in Capricorn at 27 degrees, he is ambitious for worldly fame. he is a very hard worker, patient, persistent, focussed, practical, he is goal oriented. Capricorn North Node’s don’t usually get their fame until they are older and wiser as Saturn the planet rules it and he is all about maturity. But he is an old soul already. 

HIs SOUTH NODE is in CANCER directly opposite, not shown in the chart. this symbolizes past lives, unconscious memories. He must have been a woman in a past life, a mother, a nurturer, very tender, sensitive, compassionate and he has carried this over.  He needs to find fulfillment in his career.

Ed has a lovely GRAND TRINE the blue triangle in his chart between Chiron in Cancer, Pluto in Scorpio and Venus in Pisces. This makes the planets energy blend together harmoniously. A sweet sensitive creative yet soulful power of caring.

Ed’s career started to break out with NEPTUNE Crossing his Sun about 2 years ago. 

The North Node just crossed his Pluto within the last 6 months making anyone a favorite at that time.

URANUS AND PLUTO are squaring and conjunct his natal Uranus now with NEPTUNE INVOLVED AS WELL.

Again millions of young people are undergoing this very same aspect. It is a world-changing, revolutionizing aspect. When one becomes famous for their soul talents they embody the direction of all the people in that age group. As the Beatles did in the 60;s or Elvis did in the 50’s. If you are born in this age group and need help figuring it out, I am here to advise you.

Saturn will conjunct his Pluto in 2014 and that will bring major rewards. He will be lauded and taken seriously. success is sometimes difficult to manage. This will be a testing time for him. Can be some temptations there.

So Ed’s greatest world shifting is happening now and for the next 2 years. Not that it will be over then, he is very talented. 2015 will also be his best year in 12 when Jupiter conjuncts his natal Jupiter then.

I think he is super talented for such a young man.  If you haven’t heard his music check it out. He has a number of albums out.

SMALL BUMP   

GRAND Trines and how to use them to build those dreams

The Saturn Neptune TRINE in SCORPIO PISCES was exact June 11 with both planets RETROGRADE but its far from over. The aspect is ongoing, as the two have more exact Trines with JUPITER in CANCER joining in the magic making creating  a VERY GRAND TRINE on July 17 and then another SUPER HOT GRAND TRINE with MARS in CANCER too, on July 20 one degree earlier at 4+ PISCES/SCORPIO.

Grand Water Trine 2013

SATURN TURNS DIRECT on JULY 7th

So this dream building  energy will change at the next TRINE, EXPAND monumentally with JUPITER and Saturn going direct and then MARS firing it all up. 

Now its time to do all the RETROGRADE dream building stuff,what I call the RE- thing. Review, rebuild, rewind, reflect, refinance, relegate, etc.

Grand WATER trines on this scale are really awesome, unleashing

MUCH emotions, tsunami’s of feelings, Fabulously FEMININE, home, security, children, Mothering,FOOD, water, security and lots of tears of joys and sadness. Th eworld will be a different place after this COSMIC BAPTISM.

It’s a world cleans and the mother earth needs it. Mars and Jupiter entering the womb means the Masculine sky God- Jupiter/Zeus/Yahweh will be immersed in the cauldron of the Great Mother. 

We will see a more feminine, feeling based masculine being born now.

Ed SHEERAN is my new young male role model of a sensitive yet masculine man with deep feelings, and he’s only 22 years young.

YOUR NIGHT DREAMS will be lucid, technicolor and full of emotion. Your psychic energy will increase like wild fire. You will need to know how to psychically protect yourself.

A word of caution about GRAND TRINES

The astrology cookbook on Grand Trines is that they are an easy  beneficial blending of two or more planets. They can’t be taken for granted though. You have to help make ’em work. Midwife them. It depends on which planets, what signs they occupy and how they are affecting you in your personal chart. Too much of a good thing may not be that great either. For example JUPITER in a water sign makes people put on weight.

WATER SIGNS are naturally Cancer -4th house, Scorpio 8th house  Pisces 12th house. These are all houses of beginnings and endings.

4th house is home, womb, mom, unconscious, instincts, emotional security, the stomach, endings, roots, real estate, birth, nurturing,nourishment

8th house- death, rebirth, taxes, inheritance, power, control, secrets, ruthlessness, spite, revenge, obsession, sex, s& m, atomic energy

12th house- spirituality, endings dreams, illusions, creativity, gurus, addictions, Hollywoood, glamour, compassion, Bliss, karma, institutions

So where do the GRAND TRINES waterfall in your chart?

DO YOU HAVE GRAND TRINES in your NATAL CHART?

they are fairly common. Do they really help you or do they make you lazy?

Your feedback on this is most welcome.

So we are dealing with INTENSE TERRITORY- 

The caution/down side of these TRINES can also DROWN US IN PISCES addictions, self-pity, SCORPIO obsessions, defensive control mechanisms, failing for spite, avoiding the pain, refusing rehab, overly optimistic, numbing out with eating CANCER/JUPITER.

It is excellent for artists, musicians, actors, addictions counsellors, depth psychology,therapists, shamans, spiritual revelations, traveling on water, gambling, investing in water based products, shipping, clean water, food, farming, charity work, dream groups.- see below, learning psychic tools, spiritual journeys, grand house parties, children, gourmet cooking, the housing industry,women’s rights, food, water  and nature laws being upheld, ashrams, yoga, sex therapists, tantric yoga, sound healers, 

This first SATURN NEPTUNE RETROGRADE

feels like it can unleash the GAP between your Saturn in SCORPIO depressing REALITY and your NEPTUNE in PISCES sweet dream. YOU may be feeling very sad, or angry- this is still SCORPIO involved, resentments, depression, feeling like giving up and escaping can all come up. This is the RETRO phase. We are still REVIEWING REWINDING. Dont feel bad if the GRAND TRINE magic doesn’t seem to be working for you YET.

I can certainly testify to this. 

As the aspect continues, daily and when SATURN goes DIRECT July 7 a day before NEW MOON in CANCER

that’s when you will start to feel that those dreams can be built. Slowly- this is SATURN in SCORPIO- being easy on you, giving you patience with purpose. JUPITER AND MARS are the whiz-bang optimizers. 

The raft, rug or boat you build now will be the one you magically float, fly or sail over the GRAND TRINE WATERFALLS with later.
