Venus Retrograde is officially over

Venus turned Retrograde on October 5th @ 10 degrees 50 minutes of Scorpio.

She just crossed that degree today December 18 indicating that yes love can breathe fresh air again. 

look back at all the heartbreak, losses, lovers who split, those who returned, and where you are now compared to then.

Values around love, sex, money, beauty, self-worth, death and control have shifted like earthquakes. You are not now who you were then. Venus went from Scorpio where it is deeply ensouled, can be deeply enshadowed, deeply troubled, obsessed, unconscious, driven by power and to be in control into Libra where Venus rules and it’s all about pleasing others, thinking of them, worrying about your social status obsessively, buying beautiful things, being a counselor, the hostess with the mostest, saying what people want to hear, and finding it fricking difficult to ever make up your mind.

There has been huge rifts and healing and many people cut free old ties.

Focus now on where your heart wants to sail.  Venus will remain in Scorpio until January 7, 2019.

Venus is conjunct Ceres in Scorpio 

Venus conjunct Ceres is deep soulful Mother Love

Healing the wounds of the mother. Mothers take the blame for everything. Mother is the primal energy. We are all our mothers and all the humans who are on the planet are the mothers of the mothers going back, back, back, through time. Honor the mother for giving you birth. If you are a mother and in need of healing call out to the Great Mother in all of her many forms as Mother Mary, as the Shekinah, as Shakti, Isis, White Buffalo Woman, Tara Oshun or other Goddess figures.

VENUS and CERES in Scorpio is squaring LILITH in AQUARIUS

These are all aspects of the Divine Feminine as the Lover, the Mother the sexual initiatress working together.

This aspect can denote sex scandals coming out. The shocking news of John of God the world-renowned Brazilian spiritual healer since 1976- his Uranus opposite Uranus transit -news that he was accused of raping 300 women. The Woody Allen expose by his former teenager lover.

The Mother-whore split being talked about and needs to heal by women taking back the ownership of their bodies and souls. 

Be a mother and a lover and sexy goddess. It’s the reinvention of the Divine Feminine.

Hekate, the Witches Goddess

Quote

Hekate, Witches, Magic, women, Astrology, Tara Greene

Glyptothek [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons User:Bibi Saint-Pol, own work, 2007-02-08

HEKATE is the Goddess of Magic, Witchcraft, the Night, the Moon, ghosts and necromancy.  She is a Triple Goddess and is associated with three-way crossroads which were traditional places to make offerings to Hekate, called Trivia. We now associate this Great Goddess with “Trivial Pursuits” and things that are not important. Such is the desecration to her name and honour.

She is usually shown as a woman holding two torches or as a three-bodied Triple Goddess facing past, present and future. Therefore she would be a strong divination Goddess with oracular or prophetic powers. 

""

She assisted Demeter/Ceres in her search for Persephone in Hades, guiding her through the night with flaming torches. Hekate is a bringer of Light and consciousness in the dark times. After the Mother and daughter reunion, Hekate became Persephone’s minister and companion in Hades.

She was the only child of the Titans Perses and Asteria-who rules the Stars and she received her powers over heaven, earth and the sea from them.She bestowed gifts of wealth, victory, wisdom and good luck to hunters and sailors on the earth and sea and brought prosperity to youth and to flocks of cattle. But she also withheld these gifts if mortals didn’t deserve them.  She was the only Titan to retain her powers under Zeus’s =the Patriarchy’s rule- and she was honored by all the Immortal gods and Goddesses. She is considered to be a Virgin- “whole unto herself, belonging to no man” Goddess and therefore capable of parthenogenesis if she chose to have a child. 

Other stories relate Hekate to Brimo, an underworld Goddess whose virginity was lost to Hermes/Mercury on the banks of Thessalian Lake Boibeis. Her most important cult centres were at Eleusis place of the famous Eleusinian mysteries and the Island of Samothrace where she was worshipped as a goddess of the Mysteries.

Hekate, from the Greek hekatos, means “worker from afar.” The masculine form of the name, Hekatos is also a name for Apollon or Apollo.  

Hekate was identified with a number of other goddesses including Artemis, Selene-the Moon, and many other nymphs including Maira- the Dog-Star or Sirius the brightest Star in the skies and the Star which the U.S. sun is associated with. The U.S. needs a three party system not two.

As we go into the darkest season Hekate is our Queen and Guide.

She is indicated as Asteroid 100 and she is presently at 8 degrees VIRGO exactly Sextile to Venus in Scorpio at 8+ degrees. Hekate also stands beside Asteroid Goddess Pallas Athena at 10 degrees Virgo. 

Hekate and Venus in Sextile helps us to access really deep places in our sexuality and in our souls. If you feel you are in a place of choosing between three options or feel overwhelmed with choices call up Hekate to light your way. 

Go to a triple crossroads or create a symbolic three-way altar. Make a food offering to Hekate.  Call upon her to bring you insight and light the torches in the darkness or dark times for you. She is very powerful.

Dark space, Scorpio New Moon Astrology

October 30 SCORPIO NEW MOON @ 10:38 am PDT/ 1:38 pm EDT/ 5:38 pm GMT is the darkest Moon. Scorpio is associated with the time of death and darkness in the Northern Hemisphere. It is the ancient pagan/ witches New Year on Halloween. November 1st being the New Year’s day. These ancient festivals are older than time.  Scorpio is associated with the most feared Tarot card in the deck. The DEATH card. All traditional Tarot decks show The Grim Reaper in its symbolism. The Grim Reaper is planet SATURN. Scorpio is ruled by MARS and PLUTO in modern astrology and they are still conjoined in Capricorn the seat of corporate, wordly power.

This is the last New Moon before the U.S. election and for one of the candidates the Grim reaper will come for them. The Fear of death stems from the ego, which by its nature is an illusion. Fear of change, fear of the unknown, stem from the ego which falsely thinks it is separate from our immortal souls. The more we are in our unconscious ego state the more we fear real change. Scorpio is a Fixed water sign.

Mystics talk about needing to die and be reborn within ourselves to achieve enlightenment. This death is a metaphorical and very real ego-death, which once experienced changes our ground of being totally and we are reborn in life. This rebirth is not dependent on religion or a belief in God but stems from a direct experience which changes our consciousness.  Death is not to be feared.

Scorpio New Moon Astrology Tara Greene

The Lady of Shalott by John Atkinson Grimshaw  1875

Scorpio takes us into the deep muddy waters where the soul’s roots must grow to blossom like a lotus. Scorpio is the shadowlands, the unknown, avoided, disowned, darkness within each one of us. These regions of the psyche by being ignored and denied react within us with the need for power, control, secrecy, sex, money, and projections. These most fertile parts of our soul making, need to be accessed and transformed through the alchemy of deep inner psychological or shamanic work, bravely facing our demons, anger or feelings of rejection  and turning this lead, the dark, heavy, depressed parts of ourselves into Gold, the Light of spirit.

MERCURY in SCORPIO conjunct the SUN and MOON helps us access the hidden emotions and karmic residue. NEPTUNE in PISCES trine the three helps us to have compassion with ourselves and for those who have rejected us and who were blind to our natural inner light. These are present day and past life patterns and memories which we need to transform, so that new life may be reborn. 

SATURN the Grim Reaper is at 14+ SAGITTARIUS conjunct to the Great Attractor and Venus at 15+ degrees. This union of death with the irresistible power of attraction to the dark void which is Love, is an archetypal symbol of rebirth like the phoenix; of Light and dark, faith, inspiration and optimism no matter how dark the times seem.  SATURN  and VENUS square the Moon’s Nodes Saturn  and VENUS square the Moon’s Nodes

SATURN  and VENUS square the Moon’s North Node conjunct Psyche square Neptune

These are karmic fateful points in the outer and inner world’s cyclic development. Psyche is the asteroid symbolizing the soul. Psyche is the root of psychology. The North NODE points us to soul work, deep, into the void of the unknown, the death and rebirth show. We must choose to be responsible, mature, and to move from a place of love not fear, to what attracts us and not by what we are repelled by.  Like moths attracted to the flame of spirit, higher education and humor, all Sagittarius traits.

PLUTO is in an approaching square by JUPITER in LIBRA

This is another Cardinal Cross which will be exact November 24 which is U.S. Thanksgiving at 15+ degrees, as were the 2015 Cardinal Crosses.

JUPITER in LIBRA is the peacemaker, the go-between, and social conduit. Jupiter can amplify whatever it touches. We can be too polarized between self and other which we can all feel these days. It can be too hard to decide anything or come to some middle ground, win-win situation. Jupiter in LIBRA is karmic Justice. We are

Jupiter in LIBRA is karmic Justice. We are in the scales and being tested. PLUTO is riches on the deepest soul levels. On unconscious levels, Pluto manifests as pure greed for power at any cost. Jupiter-Pluto in aspect is great for manifestation, but that depends on what the motivation is. We can manifest whatever we wish. We must learn to use that awesome power wisely and justly.

This is also very powerful sexual energy. Kundalini rising! If you do have an awe partner pratice Tantric sexuality, sex as a path to the Divine by controlling yoru sexual energy. 

PLUTO and MARS are conjunct in CAPRICORN and square Uranus, ERIS and CERES

The heavy Mars-Pluto aspects are about to separate which is good as the election is only 9 days away.  The forces of radical change are prevailing, one way or another. CERES the Great Mother, the earth reminds us to be ECO WARRIORS, to fight to protect Mother earth as the indigenous peoples are doing in Dakota right now.  A number of men took solemn vows to attest to this at the 1,000 Goddess Gathering in Washington D.C. I attended on October 21.

Chiron in PISCES is squaring MARS in Capricorn

Rather than integrate our unowned shadows, we project them onto others-Muslims, Mexicans, women, which causes more pain and suffering. We are all one in the great ocean of consciousness, no one or thing is separate from Source. The farther one ventures into the hard realities of power the farther one can get from the source. Tears will fall, denial will be high, many will respond violently. Psychic protection and boundaries will be necessary.

LILITH at 18 SCORPIO is trine CHIRON in PISCES

The independent woman, is being helped by women working together for the greater good of women as a whole. Compassion reigns. This favours Hillary Clinton.

The symbol for 8 degrees SCORPIO by John Sandbach

“A woman in a hot bath. Outside, snow is falling. (Omega Symbol) Interacting/Receptive

There is an ability here to create one’s own atmosphere around the self and to be so thoroughly immersed in it that one becomes impervious to any harsh or unfriendly conditions in the outer world.  {Pisces tendency} There is a need, though, to question one’s motives for ignoring outer reality. At its highest,the energy can be used to protect oneself so that creative and spiritual agendas can be carried out. But if this way of being is not serving a higher purpose and is depended on to the point of becoming a crutch, it will result in stagnation, and eventually fail.

The Chandra Symbol for this degree is “A retarded man with white hair. He has an angelic countenance.” This degree is beyond intellect, and even if the person who has a planet in this degree is intellectual they will be detached from such processes, in such a way that the narrowness and biases that create intellectual limits are transcended. Sometimes it will disturb other people that the person of this degree knows things automatically and directly, even when they have had no prior exposure to them, or haven’t taken in much information about them. This ability to directly access truth can be used to nurture others, and help them to realize the existence of other realms of reality.

A bunch of iron keys. (Chandra Symbol). We have all that we need to open all doors and when we realize this we come into a synthesis of our innocence and our wisdom.

Fulfillment degree: Taurus 19. A bottle of gold dust gathered from many places over many years. (Omega Symbol). Meaning extracted from many different experiences and sources is synthesized together and creates an inner assurance that is joyful, nurturing, and warm, and which protects us from the hostile forces of life.” This degree is opposite to Lilith.

At this very dark New Moon make sure you set aside time to do serious ceremony. This is symbolically the end of the year. Most of our Universe is dark, unknown, filled with invisible stuffs. The dark is our natural birth place, we are created in the dark of our mother’s wombs, it’s where we are feelings of being safe, hearing our mother’s heartbeat and knowing we are connected to the source in physical reality. The dark is a place of transcendence. Let go of old notions, let your ego justifications go, let it all slip away. Have faith that you will survive and thrive. There is nothing to fear.
