BIRDMAN TRAILER- swearing warning!

Mars in Virgo, Angels,Perfect lover Horoscopes

Mars, the warrior planet where the action is always, enters earthy mutable practical VIRGO Oct 15 – December 7.

Mars in Virgo is the eco-warrior, the workplace protector, the perfectionist lover. The soldier called  Mr.Clean

Mr.Clean- Mars in Virgo

MARS in Virgo energy is extremely analytical and precise. Virgo is ruled by MERCURY so though grounded, it has a strong intellectual connection. Virgo’s are very disciplined and concerned about Health. They can be OCD -like, worrying and fussing,  really anal about anything being out of place. They are perfectionists and critical. They are focussed, hard workers, like practical things, never overspend and are much like the character of Sheldon Cooper in the Big Bang Theory. BAZINGA!

Mars in Virgo -The pen is mightier than the sword and so might the penis be.

Mars in Virgo will attack intellectually and slay you with criticism, more than physically although they can be strong.

It’ll be a testosterone driven  7 weeks of  getting passionate {and defensive}  about  work, your community, pets, perfectionism, hard work, accounting, cleaning up, balancing the budget, punctuality, nature lovers, gardening, servants, organizing everything, eating a very healthy diet- no carbs, no gluten, no dairy, no wheat etc., working out, cleansing the body and your environment at every moment, a tendency to only buy when absolutely necessary, only practical shoes- no high heels or brand names allowed.

Check out where VIRGO is in your natal chart that’s the hot area.

MARS and an ARCHANGEL

MARS will initially ignite and unite with the fixed star Regulus now at zero degrees Virgo from October 15- 19th. Not just a character in Harry Potter, REGULUS was the heart of the Lion for the last 2,160 years. Regulus is Royalty, and in Virgo it’s down to earth, notice them marrying mere commoners now.

REGULUS is also the STAR of ARCHANGEL RAPHAEL a beautiful angel who governs the Heart and his energy is a gorgeous emerald green colour. Raphael’s energy is extremely healing, I have been initiated into working with Angel Raphael and it’ so beautiful. I send prayers to the earth daily with this Archangel. Meditate on Mars activating the heart chakra during this Virgo transit.

Mars in VIRGO sexually

Men will tend to serve their female partners. They will pay attention to every detail of what their partners like and use that as a reference. Mars in VIRGO is squeaky clean sex, and perfect order in the bedroom. They can have a lot of stamina. Sex may be very routine, always at the same time, not too late. Sex with Mars in Virgo is like everything else, hard work, something that they will finish to perfection. They are not romantics.They can be kinky and play dominant /slave. As Virgo is known to be the sign of servants.

The down side of Mars in Virgo, worrying about every detail, driving oneself and others crazy complaining about everything that is imperfect, nervousness, overly organizing, being too submissive, too frugal, fear of dirt, and upper intestinal and digestive troubles. Stressed out, can’t relax in sex, comparing you to anyone else who was more perfect.

When Mercury Goes Retrograde in Scorpio Oct 21 that will shift and slow Mars down down till Mercury goes Direct Nov. 10

MARS THROUGH THE SIGNS

Mars in Virgo will make beneficial aspects to Taurus, and Capricorn plus water signs Cancer and Scorpio.

Mars will be pushing Sagittarius butt to get their acts together, makes Pisces dreamers get real, grounds those air headed Gemini’s.

Mars in Virgo will annoy Aquarius, and especially ARIES, as he rules that sign and they just don’t understand each other.

LEO and Libra get off scott free.

Mars in Virgo will be opposite NEPTUNE from the 15- exact on the 19th so have a very romantic frugal date that night.

A great day to ignite new dreams and artists visions.

Mars sextiles North Node  at 7 degrees Virgo to Scorpio on October 28- check out the angle of your goal and realign if necessary

Mars opposes Chiron October 29 for some excellent healing and forgiveness

Mars TRINEs PLUTO on HALLOWEEN OCT 31 at 9 degrees that is excellent for Taurus Capricorn and Virgo peeps. That will be an intense HALLOWEEN.

Venus in Taurus, art critics, true art

Venus enters TAURUS april 15- May 9

She rules the arts. She is the MUSE or divine Goddess of inspiration. That’s why Neptune is her “higher octave.” Venus is earthly fleshy real sex, art, money, luxury, relationships.

 I started out as an artist. At age nine I told my surprised mother that I had decided to be an artist when I grow up, that was that. I had figured out that being an artist was a lisence for escaping the rat race, the normal expected, boring, unconscious way of life.  I saw ART  as FREEEDOM, ANARCHY. I went to OCAD which wasn’t a design school then. My first husband was an artist, my present husband is an artist, our daughter is presently at a performing arts high school.  

I was born with a natal VENUS NEPTUNE EXACT conjunction in Libra the Sign VENUS rules. Yes art is a religion, very spiritual to me.

I happened upon this article in BLOUIN ART INFO -Canadian version. I will excerpt it and provide a link.

FINALLY someone with weight in the art world has spoken the unspoken!  American ART Critic DAVID HICKEY 

what do you think about contemporary art?

There are only a few great critics holding forth in today’s waning critical climate who maintain an element of danger in their invocations. These voices of authority and interrogation bend and veer away from our understood rails of art appreciation into rogue states of wicked qualification, correction, dissent – even revolution. It takes great bravery, in this moment, to call a thing a thing, and something even greater to be compelling and convincing in this effort. These critics tend to say things loosely, ham-fistedly, but with a pulpiteer’s command. They tend to interrupt the academic scaffolding of distance with oratory tempos that are stark and seemingly stupid in their abrupt profundity; they speak with adamancy, and they ring bells that feel assailing.

Among these writers are Peter Schjeldahl, Ben Davis, and Dave Hickey, the infamous and revered American critic who has carved out a voice in the Western art world akin to that of journalism’s Hunter S. Thompson. He has achieved storied laurels – seemingly despite but also because of himself – and has recently and very publically retired from the racket entirely. He has not done this from exhaustion nor age (he is 73) but because his subject has grown too insipid, too “stupid,” he says. It’s easy to believe him.

Dave Hickey did something to Canada, which should not have been unexpected; all the same, it was reviled. Hickey came to Guelph University for the annual Shenkman lecture, and offended everyone.

Importantly, on the eve of Canada financier Jim Flaherty’s federal budget reveal (in which general ‘skills’ were summoned to match the country’s available employment), Hickey produced an argument that had a special relevance for its tender audience, and its economic moment: as he took short aim at his crowd – comprised of provosts, university presidents, deans, professors, students, and former graduates – Hickey commanded we give up our institutions, relinquish our vain pursuit of accreditation, and summoned us to become artists again. “Demand that your students can perform a jump shot,” he said, in one of many references to an idealized world in which the art school was run like an athletic department. “Give up your three cars and pool, and the 4 o’clock meetings, and become an artist again.” But, he amended, if we are to continue in our endeavoring of an arts degree, or in our pursuit of a tenure-track professorship, demand of ourselves and our students skills, results, ambition, and that we kick the 90% that is shit, to the curb.

There are very few of us working from the art world’s bleachers, perhaps even fewer of us trading in its court, who would argue against Hickey’s main thesis: that the academe is destroying contemporary art. However the critic-cum-orator quickly established an antagonism towards his audience that was only further embossed by his seeming casualness.

Clad in a black sweat suit and runners, Hickey approached the podium – after no fewer than three introductions (a performance that would only serve Hickey’s later point on the academe’s overwrought hierarchy) – and very quickly descended into an 80 minute lecture that, while seemingly rudderless (he had no notes, and repeated himself frequently while veering off into anecdote and recurring metaphor) was in its sum a strident call for change. He was appealing to civilization.

“In America, and in Canada in particular, the balkanization of our universities has pretty much destroyed civilization as we know it. I think we’ve done it under the guise of control – as Michel Foucault would say, ‘care is control’ – and I’m here to argue for less of it,” he said. ”I’m here to argue for a little more benign neglect.”

The critic flitted between personal anecdote (quoting his friends Richard Serra, John Baldessari, and his nemeses, Clement Greenberg and Thomas Jefferson), near constant swipes at the academe, a few bigoted slags, and consistent, impassioned invocations for systemic change, though he maintained that “there is no deficit of quality work, it’s just that the world around it has changed.”

While figureheads like John Kissick, Dasha Shenkman, and Matthew Teitelbaum dropped their heads and rubbed their foreheads (with some gesturing wildly for moderator Robert Enright to close the lecture), others held hopeful expressions in a transparent commitment to the critic’s overarching thesis. The exquisite and painful moment of Hickey’s truth and brutalism brought to mind Peter Schjeldahl’s call to arms, of a few years ago, first issued at the New School, and then transcribed for Frieze (March 2011), wherein he spoke of the “irreligious gravitating towards art,” and how its “want tends to be lonesome and blind.”

Schejldahl goes on, “An educated common sense of the last three decades holds that all art is rhetorical and thus a game of pretenses and/or of exposing pretenses. This view is basic to the gaming of art. In fact, all art can be seen that way, but not usefully, if anyone’s experience matters. It ignores the fact that good art happens to us in ways that knock us out or our educations.” Complaining about contemporary art rhetoric and the ubiquity of the term “practice” in relation to an artist’s work, Schjeldahl demands, “When do you stop practising something and do it?”

Hickey would, over the course of his freestyle lecture, emboss this very point (“go pro,” he kept repeating), while damning every academic and art school attendee in the room in myriad ways – some clever (“theory is really easy: it’s like playing poker with no spots on the cards”) and some lazy (“if you are manic depressive, dyslectic, morbidly obese, have down’s syndrome, you end up in the art department”).

At the end of his talk, Hickey was, unsurprisingly, met with a question from an audience member, who began tremulously, “well I’m not afraid,” but went on, gaining confidence, to demand of Hickey just how “serious” he was, because “it’s a huge insult to us who devote our life to the academe; not everybody has the ability to become a basketball player in the NBA.” Hickey responded, “if I was being insulting it’s because I meant to be. There is nothing that I’ve said that I haven’t done. But we’re not talking about your benefits. We’re talking about Western civilization.”

Dave Hickey, a letch, a rogue, a dissenter, an exile, had effectively performed his point. With the very subject of his seeming disdain positioned firmly beyond his pulpit, he exhibited a tremendous affection for its cause and well-being by demanding of it something greater. The Canadian art world and its academe suffered the point, one all too rarely made in this sector, and one never issued at its establishment: be better. As Hickey refrained, “how do you be brave? How do you be brave?” Likely those most angered by Hickey’s lecture will be the ones answering him in spite, and to good effect, in the years to come.

Eidolons,Trance Paintings, Must See Art show Napoleon Brousseau, Toronto

Napoleon Brousseau Lincoln art painting

Napoleon Brousseau

 Fascinating portrait paintings of apparitions from the imaginal realm

inspired by Walt Whitman’s poem, “Eidolon”.

I met a seer,

Passing the hues and objects of the world,

The fields of art and learning, pleasure, sense,

To glean eidolons.

http://robertkananajgallery.com/

Napoleon Brousseau spent several years in trance meditation states, painting and stalking these elusive eidolons and fantomes which he has so powerfully pinned down in this series of nineteen portrait paintings. The paintings scintillate and respond to the viewers gaze, largely because of Brousseau’s “roll, grind, roll, brush,repeat” technique he created in order to wrestle his subjects down into the dimensions of each work.

Each painting expressing each phantom’s own intriguing individuality and personality. One is a Christ like apparition, another a chimeric mask. The portraits appear to tangibly push forward into the viewers’ space, trying to enter into our dimension.Viewing each one is fascinating encounter and leaves an enduring impression, they are quite unforgettable.

Abraham Lincoln appears and disappears from behind a chain link fence,the dividing poverty line. “Mister Bitumen” beguiles us with his bulbous reflective death mask floating ominously over a ghostly skull. Mister Bitumen was inspired by the environmental damage of the Alberta Tar Sands.

“I began from a meditative process, I held an ideal and went searching, rolling and re- rolling multiple layers of paint. When the ghostly image finally revealed itself,I sealed it in epoxy. Then I ground down the paint and resumed rolling more layers in search of more details ” Grind,roll, repeat, the process took a long time.

Napoleon Brousseau is well known for his giant ant sculptures adorning the Museum of Canadian Contemporary Art in Toronto and The Cameron House, a famous local art bar. Napoleon collaborated with Fastwurms which presented innovative eco installations worldwide. Brousseau is a world traveler who has shown and created continuously, working in many mediums- which always confronts the viewer with a distinctive perspective from the usual way of seeing the world.

A seasoned veteran of the Toronto art scene. Brousseau devoted most of the last seven years to Art Directing his new media eco fundraising project “SEED” which uses cell phones interactively to co-create digital trees which raises funds to plant actual trees in urban settings. Seed has been presented in Canada, the US, China, Australia and The McMichael Art Gallery, Kleinburg 2012.

This is a MUST SEE show. At the new Robert Kananaj Gallery  http://robertkananajgallery.com/

Pluto goes RETROGRADE April 10- Go to Hell and back, Astrology advice Tara Greene

Hell/Hades Plutos lands painting by Hieronymus Bosch 15th century

 Pluto begins his annual 5 month journey back to his own home territory HELL or HADES as the Roman’s called it. Turning Retrograde at 9 degrees 34 minutes of Capricorn April 10 @ 9:21 am PDT/ 12:21 pm EDT  

The famous Dutch painter Hieronymus Bosch, 1450-1516  painted the most hellish paintings of that terrible Hell hole, filled with Xtreme sinners, to terrify good Christians  into behaving piously. John Milton, famously stated that he would “rather reign in Hell, than serve in Heaven.” is more of the modern ilk. 

Hell is what we create, Heaven or Hell or a bit of both.  If  Heaven is on earth here and now then Hell is here and now as well. Pluto/ Hades is Lord of the Underworld. He is the King of the Dead. His world is the world of shades, of the shadow.

We can’t always stay in the Light, although New Agers claim you don’t have to own your own shadow, or spend too much time in the depression, loneliness, desperation, powerlessness, rage, etc. that is part of the bright energies shadow side. Your own shadow side  may be hidden from yourself, if you aren’t honest. Your shadow is what you project onto others, the people you can’t stand, the “others,” those who you are jealous of, resent, and compare yourself to.Your shadow is also parts of yourself that you can’t own, that perhaps you are beautiful and worthy of being loved and of having a happy enjoyable life. Your shadow side is also all the reasons why your life isn’t going so great because of all the  hexes, curses,black magic your childhood or other things you rely on in ignorance and as excuses for taking responsibility for your life. 

Owning your own shadow is a freeing thing. It is your ticket out of  hell.  But Hell, who was a Nordic Goddess by the way,originally called HEL, is also good. We learn from everything, we have to experience everything. That’s why we are here!  So enjoy your journey as Pluto takes you to his home base to show you around. The death aspect is revered by Tibetan Buddhist’s, the charnel ground, the cemetery, that’s where KALI lives, death is destruction of the EGO and all that we” know” and hold dear. 

You can’t be fully alive unless you are aware of Death. Use death as an ally.”It’s a good day to Die” is very potent Native American wisdom. Get rid of anything that isnt serving the new higher frequencies now, get rid of old emotional baggage, most of your stuff you dont need, etc. Make way for a new life. We are all going to have to Lose our religions and so much more over the next number of years. 

So do die a wee bit daily till Sept. 18th when Pluto turns direct at 6 degrees 57 minutes of CAPRICORN. 

To find out how PLUTO is affecting you, find out where Capricorn is in your  Natal chart.  That’s where the biggest endings, completions, deaths  on many levels not usually physical and LETTING  GO , transformation and rebirth are occurring. Pretty important stuff. 

The aspects Pluto makes to any other planets is also WHAT is being affected most for the next five months.
