The Nightmare by John Henry Fuseli 1781

With the RETROGRADE ENERGY of  Mars,Mercury, Saturn, Jupiter and Pluto,we are dragging the past out into the light. The past is our own childhoods, our repressed memories from when we were pre-verbal.  Nightmares can also be very strongly past-life unfinished issues. Nightmares, as scary as they may feel, are a potent gift from the psyche. All dreams come in service. Our shadows are not negative or evil of themselves, they are merely unresolved karmic memories which by appearing and reappearing they are begging us to accept, feel, integrate and complete those very heavy issues. Yes we have all done negative things or been harmed by others with unloving intentions. It is a part of the human journey. This is not to absolve anyone of misdeeds. If we don’t integrate our shadows we continue to be run by them. Watch out for those Nazi’s chasing you in your dreams, or other dark, sexual, shadowy, fearful, death and regeneration monster dreams. These scary threatening monsters are gods, archetypes in disguise trying to help us to defend ourselves and also to love them. These monsters can be befriended by doing Focussing and turned into allies.

If you attract a dark demonic entity which seems foreign, you must not fall for their tricks. You must really be able to discern what they are. They will offer you gifts, never take anything. Unless it it something that belongs to you . My teacher taught me about demons disguised as the light. They can seem real, but they always miss one little thing. We must learn to be very sharp and alert, and discipline our minds.  Nightmare work can take a long time. But at some point that work is done.

UPLIFTING DREAMS

Then, we begin to explore new worlds, dimensions, landscapes, characters, teachers and themes in our dreams. We may find ourselves being able to fly, and having lucid dreams if we keep doing the work of listening to and honoring our dreams. This is one of the most important tasks we need to do in our lives.

Better the shadow that you know then the one that you don’t. 

Another nice earth Trine today from Moon to Mercury just after her turn RETRO.

Be generous, let yourself feel. Charity is also important. 

Gotta go, dreamland is calling.

Weekend Astrology, sacred sexy dreaming and more

Do you have sex in your dreams?  Take this little poll.

It is very common to have sexual dreams. I was having sex with someone I didn’t know and there was no physical movement, it was Tantric sexuality, a symbolic alchemical sacred sexual connection, a rebalancing and an input of Masculine energy. The Masculine is an infusion of fire elementally. Fire is spiritual knowledge, passion, action.

CARD OF THE DAY 

Waterhouse Sex and dreams Tara greene

Hylas and the Nymphs 1896 J.W. Waterhouse 

It’s common for both men and women to orgasm in dreams. Yes it may be a wish fulfilling fantasy, to discharge unmet sexual energy.  On a deeper ARCHETYPAL level it is symbolic of rebalancing your own inner masculine and Feminine energies. In Ancient times women were SACRED SEXUAL priestesses who served in the Goddess’ temples and all women in Greece had to serve here before she could get married.

These sacred Priestesses were the ones who dealt with men’s PTSD who returned from war, having killed others. These women cleansed and purified these men by embodying the Goddess and through the sacred sexual union, they were made whole once again and could then safely re-integrate back into society. I think we could seriously use a form of this once again instead of putting them on drugs and leaving soldiers vulnerable, terrified, sick, addicted and  imbalanced.

DREAM RAPE?

You can also experience terrifying dreams of not being able to move and being prodded, raped, etc. That is an entirely different matter where you can be invaded by negative entities. There are the famous Incubus and succubus demons in paintings. Dream vampires.

In a woman’s dream of having sex with a man the masculine acts on behalf of  the Women’s soul, anima or Inner Feminine. She projects that Inner masculine-its positive and masculine sides onto every man she meets.In a man’s dream, having sex with a woman indicates the need to embrace his Inner Feminine- yes every man does have one- its his soul the ANIMA,  his intuition, his gut feelings and instincts. He projects that Inner image onto every woman he meets.

I was reading Drunvalo Melchizedek’s Flower of Life Book one again before I went to bed.

What have your dreams been like lately? 

I am leading a 5 day workshop on DREAMING at the GRAIL SPRINGS SPA AUG 3-7= a 5 night workshop. See link below.

It’s been a weird week for me energetically. Have you felt that too?

Mercury is Retrograde and that slows down and messes up all the communications. Also SATURN sitting on my ASCENDANT- I am sooo tired, like that Beatles song. I respect Saturn and so we all should.

I have been getting some major messages from women who really need to work with the GODDESS in their bodies now and will write about that soon. I am also needing to finish my book at long last.

I woke up this morning also thinking about THE SACRED.

How much time do you put into the Sacred rather than the profane? I have always felt that the work that I do, especially when I go to corporate events, is an opportunity for me to bring awareness and enlightenment to people who work in a business profaned situation. On another level it is all sacred of course, but hey it sure can be,look, feel profaned.

People write songs about feeling like sinners, Do they directly write songs about feeling sacred that are popular?

Chiron went Retrograde this morning in PISCES so intend to do a lot of healing in your dreams over the next 5 months.

SUMMER starts JUNE 21

Moon’s still in Aries on FRIDAY and Saturday yes its the weekly Grand Cardinal Cross stuff.

I have seen so many clients lately whose lives are being seriously devastated  by it on all levels physically, mentally, emotionally, some have serious health crises.. 

Especially those born with URANUS in LIBRA in January 71-72 who are now getting one heck of a mid life crisis.

You would have Uranus at 13-17 degrees Libra. 

So I send you many blessings to get through your “DARK NIGHT OF THE SOUL” and I am here for you if you need some sacred advice.

Moon enters Mellow TAURUS on Saturday June 21 @ 11:03 pm EDT- stop to smell the roses!

and its a relatively easy smooth sweet Sextile aspect ride all weekend.

CHILL relax, BBQ, couch potato it, comfort food, SUN is in CANCER now,

be by water, listen to your Tauruean guts, walk in nature, listen to your body,

MOON Sextiles the Sun and NEPTUNE in the day and

TRINES PLUTO at night

PLUTO rules the UNDERWORLD so do intend to have some sexy sacred dreaming tonight.

Things continue relatively easy till Monday morning.

when Moon opposes SATURN in the week hours. 

VENUS enters GEMINI June 23 at 5:33 am PDT- JULY 18

You will be waking up to an entirely different romantic scenario. Which one to choose?

VENUS IN GEMINI- wants her cake and to eat it too and she gets it.

I just had a client with Venus in Gemini and she was so charming and was trying to choose between many lovers. Well she also had Jupiter in Leo  as well. 

 You will be extremely flirty and non commital. I’ll write about Venus in GEMINI shortly.

Dream, dream, dream, How to Lucid dream from Tara Greene

LUCID DREAMING ALERT!
Sweet lucid dreaming potentials and are high tonight and SUNDAY night.
Moon is in PISCES the most spiritual of all the signs ,which governs the Unconscious, so the Lunar magic essence is magnified.
dream  image Tara Greene
The Moon and Neptune, its’ planetary ruler conjunct on Jan 4 in the day and the effects last Saturday and Sunday night.
YOU can also use this time to meditate as you can have an “Awake”  Lucid Dream.
Please NOTE: Pisces Moon and NEPTUNE conjunct each month- so use these specific times to attempt for meditating and to Lucid Dream. Dreams were traditionally used for healing by the Ancient Greeks.
What is a Lucid Dream?
 In your dream you know you are dreaming and you can change them at will.
They are “super realistic”  in blazing Technicolor, the feelings and senses are heightened, even your sense of smell, one of the rarest. Do Note any “smelly”  messages in your dreams,
You feel that something important is going on in the dream, you know you need to pay attention.
You may feel that you are awake or in another dimension.
YOU can also go directly  from a wide awake state into a Lucid dream state, or through Meditation.
There is actually a Dream Yoga practice and Shamans worldwide learn to navigate through their dreams.
10 steps for LUCID DREAMING
BEFORE YOU GO TO SLEEP
1. Do not east a heavy meal before going to sleep.
2.Do some deep breathing and relax your body.
3.YOU must state to yourself – I will be awake in my dreams.I will remember my dreams.  3 times over.
4. Incubate or intend a question to be answered in your dreams.
5. Make sure you wake up naturally or set your alarm a bit before you need to. Allow yourself time.
6. Remember to ask yourself where was I ? right away.  
7. Write it down. Bringing the dream into real time. Like pinning down a butterfly.
8. Pay attention to memory triggers in the day.
9. Understanding  and working with your dream contents.
There are many many ways to do this and I urge you to try many. Dreams are layered very deeply.
 Dreams often speak in puns, it can be literal. Do NOT analyze from the dream ego, from what you daytime ego wants to see. Treat each person, object and action in your dream as  part of yourself. You meet Archetypal figures in dreams and spirit guides. There is NO TIME in dreamland.  
All dreams come in service, even scary ones. Especially NIGHTMARES.
10. I help give feedback about you dreams but ultimately you should FEEL in the body what is true for you.
I offer dream work readings and workshops. BOOK A DREAM READING http://www.taratarot.com
Future Dream Workshop at GRAIL SPRINGS SPA- August 3-7th 2014 –http://www.grailsprings.com
LUCID MEDITATING
It helps to have  binaural beats or other subliminal music or induction.  Stuart Wilde created a Theta beat Metronome, in the late 80’s that’s good. There are lots available on YouTube for free these days. Check out which works best for you. The Silva Method is also very reliable. The deeper you relax the deeper you go. Ask your Guardian Angel to help you.

Dream, dream, baby. How to incubate your wishes

 If you are feeling frazzled, do this. Each night a treasure trove awaits your excavation. We spend 1/3 of our entire lives sleeping and dreaming.

A night without a dream remembered is a gift unopened. Make use of and honor the gifts the Moon brings to you every night. Dream incubation and recall are very helpful to help restore balance in your life. Your dreaming will become clearer and your inner and outer life will be more integrated and in  harmony. You will feel happier, more peaceful and less afraid. Dream recall for healing is an ancient technique used world wide. 

10 step guide on how to do dream incubation

You will need a few of simple, inexpensive items.

1. Pure organic lavender oil, best to rub it on your third eye before you go to bed. It’s a very relaxing and protective herb. It is very strong, some people are allergic to it. Drinking chamomile or sleep tyme teas before bed are also a good aid. 

2. A dream pillow sachet, these are made of various herbs, mugwort is one of the main herbs used to enhance dreaming.You can buy them or make them yourself. Herbs used are Anise-repels nightmares but use sparingly Cedar, Mugwort and mullein also protect.  Catnip, Calendula induces sleep, chamomile, hops, jasmine; lemon balm helps with insomnia, rose petals,  sweet grass, sage, lavender and rosemary- a bit as its scent is strong. You put some or all of these into a muslin or cotton bag and tie it and place some or all the herbs under your pillow.

3. A special notebook which you will use only to record dream images, scenes, feelings, dialogue and questions.

4. Before you go to sleep ask the High Priestess, as she is the Archetype of the Moon incarnate, Ancient Goddess Isis, to come to you in your dreams. She is Trump #2 in the Tarot.

 Tarot of dreams High Priestess Tara Greene

THe High Priestess from the Tarot of Dreams by Marchetti

She is a very powerful and real presence, the veil holder between the worlds who goes back and forth between the two twilights. She can be contacted anytime but it is easier when the Moon is in water signs Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces, as water symbolizes the fluidity of consciousness and emotions.

5. Your intention is everything. Ask to have a situation clarified, or for direction. Tell yourself that you will be awake in your dreams, that you will remember your dreams. This is soul work you are embarking on. Remember that your dreams are messages from your Higher Self.

6. Tell your body to remember everything. All dreams come in service, even nightmares, these are issues that we don’t want to or are afraid of facing. They keep recurring because we haven’t integrated them. Be fearless.

7. You will need to wake yourself up earlier then you need, to  process your dreams and write them down.

8. When you wake up remain perfectly still and immediately recall the feelings, images or energy of your dream. Do not attempt to change anything in the way you recall the dream.

9. If you don’t remember anything right away don’t give up. Dream recall is a practice, a discipline. Like any other relationship you’re dreaming soul will only speak to you if you connect to it and show an interest. Be patient. Learning to meditate before bed is also helpful.

10. I believe that only you can interpret your dreams. Yes they seem nonsensical to the day world  ego. But from the soul’s perspective they are a treasure trove of insights. Each individual has his or her own symbolic language, along with a collective unconscious that we all refer to . Each dream is full of icons, the soul speaks in images.  Everything in the dream is an aspect of yourself, the lamp, the shit, the neighbour, the house.  So become each object and speak from the place of who the object is, what its reality is, Point of view. What does the lamp have to say? Dreams also speak in puns. A lamp is an illuminating device. What light can the lamp throw on the subject? Keep asking questions. Your dream journal should fill up quickly with questions and relationships. Follow the patterns in your dreams.

Dreaming is the royal road. It is the closest we come to experiencing what life is like when our consciousness is unbound to the physical world- what we call death- every night. The more aware you are of your dreaming landscape, the less fear you will have around death.

You spend 1/3 of your life asleep. Each night a treasure trove awaits your excavation. A night without a dream remembered is a gift unopened. Make use of and honor the gifts the Moon brings to you every night. Your dreaming will become clearer and your inner and outer life will be more harmonious.

Last night I dreamed of our dog Jasper for the first time. He shit out a football shaped and sized poop. He was standing on it and bouncing on it. So I went to pick it up and i got some poop on my feet, that I had to clean up. Nothing to be embarrased about. Shit in dreams is a positive thing. Shit is the fertile muck that is the ground for the lotus to grow.
