Testosterone recharge, 50 shades of Mars in Scorpio Astrology

MARS leaves his peacekeeping, estrogen soaked immersion through Libra July 25 2014, another 777 day.

NUMEROLOGY =July =7, 5 + 2= 7, 2+ 0+1+ 4 = 7. Mystic magical 7 heavens number.  Same TRIPLE 7 value as on  July 16 when the MH17 was shot down.

Mars has meandered through LIBRA  since DECEMBER 7 , 2013, far longer than usual. Libra is the sign of the Peacemaker supposedly, but actually Libra is the balancing act between two opposites. Libra is the ambassador, relationships are the AIR they breathe, they are creative, unsure of themselves and NICE.

Mars is the GO Go Testosterone fueled WAR GOD. The planet of MEN, fire, independent,  all about me, anger. The warrior’s track record hasn’t been that great on his PEACEKEEPING  mission while in Libra for all this time. What do you think?

Mars has pussyfootd around for these months as he is in DETRIMENT – means, in the sign opposite the one it rules for over 7 months. Things will HEAT up Soon.

MARS has learned about the OTHER side.VENUS rules Libra and he must be DRUNK IN LOVE as Beyonce’s so aptly synchronous song puts it. I love the way the Archetypal symbols drip into the collective Unconscious and then come out into pop culture. The First transgender actress Laverne Cox is now on  mainstream TV in Orange is the New Black.

MARS in Libra – has it made you more romantic and sociable? More aware of art and beauty? More aware of being polite ? The Femming down of the Masculine has been a good thing. We need to remember the territory gained.

MARS goes home a world-weary warrior much like Odysseus in the famed Odyssey.

Mars in Scorpio from July 25 @ 7:25 pm PDT -September 13, 2014.

EXPECT rampaging testosterone  with men’s sex drives going through the roof.

Mars in Scorpio is WILL POWER, never get sidetracked until it gets what it wants. MARS in Scorpio can bring out the darkest deepest shit from Scorpio’s black death depths. Revenge, torture, the Plague, power and control issues, secrets, psychopaths, war, violence, shootings. As if we don’t see enough of this anyways.

Mars will stir up deep seated anger, so be on RED ALERT. MARS ATTACKS!

Going to be a  roller coaster ride with torrents of emotions. Not to mention the weather as Mars in Scorpio creates flooding, hurricanes, lots of water =steam heat.

Women-Mars in Scorpio can also mess up your hormonal balance, creating flooding when you menstruate and push your held back anger out into the open from those 7 months of needing to be NICE and in that awful relationship at any cost. Not anymore!

Expect to find out the deep dark secrets over the next 7 weeks.  Do get into understanding your own and others on a deeper psychological basis during this time. It’s a Rorschach test come to life.

SEX  POWER

Unleash your sex drive, it’s healthy to have an orgasm a day. Your  will to be Numero Uno will be strong- Jupiter is in LEO remember.

MARS squares JUPITER Aug 1st at 3 degrees. It is also Lammas a cross= quarter Day in the calendar round of the year.

BEWARE of getting seduced and overwhelmed by going to the Dark Side of Scorpio. Darth Vader will invade your dreams.

Bill Clinton weighs in on Rob Ford crack cocaine scandal on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ | CP24.com

Bill Clinton weighs in on Rob Ford crack cocaine scandal on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ | CP24.com.

I was watching Kimmel last night.  Its was quite amazing to see former President Clinton, himself no stranger to scandal, say that Toronto Mayor Rob Ford ” has absolutely destroyed all stereotypes about Canadians.”  Thanks Rob. What can we do to repay you? All PR is not necessarily good PR.

Are tourists thronging to Toronto looking for crack pipes in every alley now?

I predicted that Mayor Rob Ford {who I absolutely detested from before the time he was elected mayor}  will  be arrested, busted and put in jail and not be around for re-election as Toronto mayor later in 2014.

I am not Patriotic but thanks Rob for ruining Canada’s squeaky clean, NICE folks of the world reputation. I was kinda proud of that in an aw shucks Canadian sorta back bacon way.

You aren’t a real Canuck anyway Rob Ford -you never say SORRY, or eh.

Between your renegade druggy, swearing, poor white trash in rich fatness persona and Conservative Right wing PM Stephen Harper, Canada’s reputation has gone down the tubes as fast as the Alberta Tar Sands has tarnished our ecological and peace maker  status.

Well so it goes as old Kurt Vonnegut used to say.

Clinton was in fine form. I have always admired his persona and his totally symmetrical face. He looks better now than he used to, he’s become a vegan.

I live in this embarrassing town now. It’s actually quite a great city in a lot of ways. As for name destiny. Toronto, or TRAWNA as the natives say, is nicknamed Hogtown. And Rob Ford sure looks like the literal mayor of hogtown. So be careful what you refer to yourself as.

And be careful what you wish for to.

 

2014 preview, THE CHARIOT, Tara Greene Astrology Tarot

I’ve been meditating and asking my higher guides about what 2014 will be like. I am usually asked by the media for my predictions and I felt like sharing these early insights with you.

2014 in NUMEROLOGY is 2 + 0 + 1 + 4 = 7.  Seven is  a very powerful number. It’s  a primary number, divisible only by itself. It is the number of the Universe. There are 7 days of the week, 7 chakras traditionally, 7 Heavens, colors, notes of the musical scale, 7 seas, 7 planets traditionally which the days of the week are named after.

In the TAROT, Trump # 7 is called THE CHARIOT.

Let’s use the symbols of the Chariot as a  description  of the qualities that this year will unfold. 

The Chariot symbol is  a vehicle, wherein sits a Charioteer, traditionally a Prince wearing a crown. It symbolizes action, movement. The Chariot is usually seen as a  conquerer  full of strength. He can be the Sun God Apollo  in his Solar Chariot , or Krishna in the Bhagavad Gita driving Arjuna’s chariot, or a warrior of the Holy Grail. The Chariot is prominent as the Merkabah in Jewish mysticism.

I feel that the Chariot is most powerful in its Astrological reference to the sign of CANCER. 

The first water sign, it signifies emotions, the Mother, the womb itself, the Unconscious, nurturing, security, shelter,foundation, home, memories.

The Chariot is the VEHICLE which the soul uses to embody itself in the physical plane with each incarnation. 

The vehicle is our emotional bodies which we armour as the Chariot. The shell or Chariot is the outer physical body/vehicle but the Inner hidden core, the Eternal SOUL is more important.

The THOTH TAROT Shows the Charioteer in Golden Armour with the Wheel of KARMA on his lap.

The CHariot Tarot Astrology Psychic Tara GreeneTHOTH TAROT # 7 Sign of CANCER

The 4  Fixed Stars, or Archangels are pulling the Chariot. 

For me 2014 will be symbolized by BEING IN THE DRIVER’S SEAT of your own life, taking full responsibility for creating every emotion that you feel. 

On the Road is a good phrase to remember for this upcoming year.

The Chariot speaks to me of the 7 chakras and the need to keep these open at all times through meditation and allowing emotions to flow .

I am finalizing my Guided Meditations with the chakras.

The Chariot is the physical body and safety. We will need to have secure spaces and to attend to our physical vehicle really primarily.

How are we feeling and what are we sensing will be primary means of transport.

It’s about the flux and flow of the emotions and the need to ride the waves, emotionally, physically and spiritually.

Are you a wave or a particle or both? It is a return to the safety of the womb.  We will need to feel connected, protected, home. And the only safe place is within your own heart and the Divine Heart of the Mother.

We will all need to be conscious of our SOUL, our essences, living within the protection that is The Chariot, the Merkabah, the psychic energetic spiritual vehicle of Ascension.

Yes it may be a very bumpy tempestuous ride. We will need to be able to go with the flow, to not stop it or damn it up.

2014 will encourage us to feel like children; trusting, innocent, playful, spontaneous. This will be wonderful, a return to Innocence.

Everyone’s emotional sensitivity will be heightened too. We will be speaking from our hearts more. Water will be a powerful metaphor.

Much oceanic activity. March 2014 stands out to me particularly as a huge breakdown economically.

Water is a cleanser, which washes away all hardness.

The Sign of Cancer will be highlighted till mid year with Jupiter’s presence. 

The Great Mother, the great nurturer and giver of all life will be more primal and we will need to feel spiritually connected to Her  unconditional love and acceptance to thrive. We will be opening our hearts more and more and giving and caring for others as if they were our own children.

Of course the four Cardinal signs ARIES, CANCER LIBRA and CAPRICORN will be very important in the ongoing Grand Crosses which are crucifying or creating a new foundation for us.

Take Me to the River Talking Heads 

Inspirational Card of the Day, give it up

Haven’t done this in awhile so here you go.

From a totally different landscape, mindspace, magical place.

The 8 of CUPS in the RUMI Tarot

Rumi Tarot 8 of cups Tara Greene

O LOVERS, IT’S TIME TO FORSAKE THE WORLD;

HEAVEN’S DEPARTURE DRUM 

IS SOUNDING IN MY SOUL’S EAR

INTERPRETATION

wake Up! and proceed along your way.

leave all that is ephemeral and limiting behind you.

Journey on towards the greater goal, and to make your way

beyond the boundaries of time and space.

Set your sights towards the realm of the Eternal.

IN THE MTHIC TAROT

This card portrays PSYCHE (soul) who must journey into HADES/Pluto;s realm to retrieve a pot of Persephone’s beauty cream which Aphrodite {Venus} has ordered her to do in order for her to achieve true love. That must be one awesome beauty cream.

This card describes the most difficult stage in the journey that PSYCHE or SOUL makes in its quest for real relationship. The symbol of entering death’s realm which no living mortal ever escapes symbolizes, abandoning all hope. Psyche goes willingly because she is so committed- it’s just like Saturn in Scorpio,

This is where most people when confronted with the fact that a relationship is over, that there is nowhere to go left, go into denial, refusing to acknowledge that their situation is over, no matter how much pleading, begging and wishful thinking they indulge in. That only prolongs the pain.

By surrendering willingly, the opportunity for change arises.

What do you really need to let go of?

Where are you defending yourself against feeling the depression?

Depression is SATURN territory. The cure is in feeling the hopelessness in a way that doesn’t lead to suicide, and hopelessness, and has a holistic overview. It’s just a necessary balance, just Part of the journey, the downside needed to recognize and differentiate the UP side. Yon and yang. Saturn in Scorpio is heating this energy and issue up.

Most people are given drugs for depression which are dangerous and a temporary cure but really only serve to worsen the situation as the suppressed unintegrated feelings get stronger, more wild until they cannot be contained anymore. Witness all the shootings Navy Yard, everywhere in the U.S. now and so often.

It’s like the leaking radioactive Japanese reactor Fukushima is a metaphor for the world’s undigested Psyche which is pouring out in to the Pacific ocean and contaminating the largest ocean in the world and which can never be contained and will take thousands of years to reach neutrality.

Pluto is Atomic energy, and Pluto in Capricorn- is contained in a secure structure. Saturn in Scorpio- which is the sign Pluto rules are in mutual reception now. 

Lets have a more integrated holistic sense of soul needs. Not fantasy, glamour, addictions of one type or another and illusion, that is Neptune in Pisces, also training Saturn ad Pluto. 

The cosmos is pointing out the major players and what the cure is. Venus in Scorpio is TRINE Chiron in Pisces exact yesterday all sextile Pluto in Capricorn.

Have faith, and abandon all hope.

Swallow your bitter pill, It’ll make you stronger.

Abandon all hope but know that the next card in the sequence is the 9 of cups called

THE WISHING CARD.

Please share widely and wisely

Taurus Solar Eclipse May 9/10, take the bull by the horns Astrology

TAURUS SOLAR ECLIPSE May 9/10 2013
The 2nd of three SOUTH NODAL eclipses in a row. 

 spells I-N-T-E-N-S-E!   This is NO BULL.

Solar Eclipses are Super CHARGED NEW MOONS

This annular Solar Eclipse occurs at 19+ degrees TAURUS and will display the beautiful RING OF FIRE, much sought after by eclipse seekers.

 

It will ONLY be visible from western  AUSTRALIA  across most of the Northern Part and passing very close to New Guinea and out over the Pacific Ocean.

No we wont’ see it here in North America or Europe or most of the world. All solar eclipse effects last about a year afterwards.

Australia was also in the shadow pathway of the November 2012 Total Solar Eclipse in Scorpio. The area where the eclipse shadow passes is highlighted.

Where the planetary lines criss cross is where the effects of these planets will be felt the most. Ottawa Canada is one of the prime ares in the world. Moon Sun and Neptune cross here indicating the people and the government will  be at cross purposes especially over false illusions, debt, oil. I believe the PM Harper will be outed.

Cambodia is a highlighted prosperous area for mining and expansion as well as Myanmar. Vietnam are also highlighted for old wounds that need to be healed.

Dangerous areas are Iran, because  URANUS and PLUTO revolutionary atomic energy, religious fanatics, power-hungry Plutocrats cross here. Danger from tsunami’s north of New Guinea and in the Pacific Ocean due west of San Francisco.

Area in Northern Russia receives a lot of  focus as well as called Arkhangelsk, sounds like Archangels. Maybe a prominent shipping port or source of unusual magnetic energy? and  Madagascar.

What does this mean?

How does this eclipse affect you? Where is Taurus in your chart? Everyone’s got the sign of the Bull somewhere. Usually the natural 2nd house of money values romance. This is where the big light is blocked out to allow significant DNA, magnetic shifts in your consciousness in.

TAURUS, the first earth  FIXED sign, is the body and the earth itself.

From ancient times Bulls were worshipped because their horns re-created the pattern of the Moon, waxing and  waning between their horns. Taurus is Feminine, the goddess. It is sensual, practical, resourceful. It can be too stubborn and inflexible. Taurus, ruled by VENUS,  governs, resources, land, money, all physical things. The New York stock exchange was founded under the sign of the Taurus Constellation. ie. The BULL market. Taurus rules the arts, creature comforts, money, luxury, jewellery, smelling the roses, its romantic, sensual. Gets the job done. Can be lazy.

AUSTRALIA

Why is Australia in the shadow of the Solar Eclipse path? What is the meaning of this?

Australia is the oldest land on the Earth. Literally four and half billion years old. The most ancient Zircon’s which have preserved the first days of earth’s creation come from Western Australia. This discovery changed the way Geologists viewed the earth. The aborigines of Australia are the most ancient record keepers in the world, claiming that their history goes back in their memories 60,000 years. The symbol of Australia’s ancient wisdom and sacred red rocks is of honouring the earth HERSELF. Those who are aware can tune in and read these ancestral records.

On May 10 “at 6:31am on May 10, 2013, those gathering in the area will see the sun will emerge into view from beyond the east-northeast horizon. It will first resemble a pair of lobster claws and then when in full view, a horseshoe with upturned pointed tips. Finally with the dark disk of the Moon appearing to move down as opposed to the Sun moving up and off-centered “ring of fire” materializes, sitting just above the horizon. This wonderfully weird effect lasts 109 seconds, ending when the ring appears to “break” at the Sun’s lower limb. Within minutes the Sun again resembles a horseshoe, but now the pointed tips are directed downward.” – Guy Ottewell

Thanks to Carol Ann Ciocco at Galactic Free Press for some inspirational ideas I have included.

The eclipse will pass Papua New Guinea where it is 2013 and they are “BURNING witches!” Then over the Solomon Islands where Gay rights are severely prohibited and punishable.

The Eclipses’ shadow is highlighting how the Divine Feminine energies are being dishonoured.

All of these repressive Feminine and human rights energies are ANTI FEMININE, ANTI-GODDESS Anti-VENUS.  Nature, the earth, the stars and the Feminine were worshipped since the beginning of human awareness on this planet 60,000 years ago up until around 5-7,000 years ago.  So it was only in the last say 1/8 th of this cycle that the Patriarchy separated out from honoring the earth, the Great Mother and split off the mind from the heart, scorned and denied women, separated sex from nature and the true obvious cellular knowing that we are all born of woman, are all one with nature, all life forms and the earth is our mother.

VENUS the planet of LOVE, has recently re-appeared from her Underworld journey on MAY 6 appearing as the beautiful EVENING STAR. She is at ZERO degrees GEMINI on MAy 9/10 indicating  brand new communications, ideas and thinking about love, values, beauty and resources.  Venus in Gemini indicates seeing beyond apparent duality, unifying the opposites.

PLANETARY ASPECTS

Taurus Solar eclipse Tara greene

click on chart to show larger

The Eclipse has asteroid Athena exactly conjunct the Sun and the Moon. The Greek city of Athens is dedicated to the Goddess of wisdom. Yes Greece will be highlighted for the next 6 months to a year because of this.

The Eclipse has Mars and Mercury in Taurus surrounding and conjunct the South Node. Indicating that taking our time to thoroughly use mind and body together, helps us release the past.

The Sun Moon Athena Mercury Mars South Node are also bunched up with dwarf planet Sedna who functions as a Goddess orbiting far beyond Pluto who opens a spiritual gateway to Higher dimensional realities. Sedna is an Inuit, Sea Goddess. Her resurrection into archetypal world consciousness indicates she and we are ready to work in her polar oceanic feeling world. We must take care of the world’s oceans as we all came from the ocean originally.  Asteroid Goddess JUNO squares the SUN and Moon at 15 degrees Aquarius, the very powerful mid-degrees. Juno represents specifically Female wisdom; in AQUARIUS- this is the need to revolutionize women’s subordinate role for the past 2,000 years. FREEDOM, inclusion, leadership, co-operation, respecting people, are all Aquarian hallmarks.

The energy is building to the next Uranus Pluto square on May 20- the old order of things and the new revolution are going head to head, even stronger now. The forces of evolution cannot be stopped.

Omnia Vincit Amor, or The Power of Love in the Three Elements
Benjamin West

Monday was the Moon’s Day, Tuesday is Mars Day,

Wednesday April 17 is the Big Bang day ARIES Sun conjunct Mars exact!

This is the precursor for the earthquake in Iran. Also the big

Solar flare that happened last weekend contributes to the unstable erratic insecure feelings.

We need to mellow out with VENUS in TAURUS.

Use the fire power SUN MARS= MASCULINE with VENUS  and MOON as FEMININE

as an equal balanced masculine and feminine pair.

This is a beautiful Alchemical image of the SACRED MARRIAGE or BIG BANG!
 
RITUAL of SACRED MARRIAGE
 
Keep it really simple
Have 4 stones and or 4 candles- little tea lights will do, smudge or incense for purification
Set up the ritual starting with lighting the candles from the east to south-west and north
Stand in your circle light the incense and breathe deeply
Hold you arms out to your sides, call in the powers of the

Sacred FEMININE,

 intuition, introspection receptivity, love, water, earth, fertility, birth

Then call out the MASCULINE  energies to come to you,

strength, courage, action, matter, Light, earth and air, Gods, add names if you like

Then close your eyes and slowly bring your outstretched hands together to the middle of your heart chakra

 bring your palms together as in prayer,
then call out the “As above,” the SUN and all the STARS the LIGHTS of heaven,  the Sky God symbols
and all the “As below”, the earth, the crystals, the sacred cenotes and underwater springs, caves, oceans,
and feel those two energies merge into your heart chakra,

Say All is ONE and One is ALL, this is the SACRED Marriage of the Masculine

and the Feminine,  the Sacred Bride and Her Bridegroom

the Yin and the Yang.

All is balanced and whole all is in order,
I am whole.
Stay in this prayerful position and let the energies flow through you.
You may feel the erotic kundalini energies naturally rise through you. That is good.
ENjoy it.

Happy New Year’s Eve, 2013 Astrology, the chart of the entire year

astrology by Tara Greene

birth chart Jan 1 2013

The birth chart of 2013 Jan 1st at midnight set for Washington, D.C.

Watch my 2013 predictions  interview on Toronto CityTV news Dec 28. http://www.citynews.ca/2012/12/28/psychic-gives-2013-predictions/

it was very  edited down.

Dec 31 2012 New Year‘s eve

should be a party hearty year as the Moon is in LEO -mood is proud, loud,dramatic,lavish dress, passionate

MERCURY enters Capricorn early this day- so thinking will be practical

perhaps there will be some kind of a last last minute solution for the fiscal cliff- but I doubt it

last day of 2012 is an easy aspect day- be careful about overdoing it with drugs and alcohol though as Mercury sextiles Neptune

Midnight Jan 1 2013 birth chart can be used to symbolize the entire year.

It will be a Void of Course New Year

the moon is in between aspects and the Moon is symbolized by the people

so this indicates that the populace, the instincts, the feminine moods will be “unhinged and unhindered

being in a more reflective, deeply connected to their own individual unconscious feelings and unaffected by outside influences

void of course times are always times of spiritual development and not outward doings

very interesting…..the Galactic Center Dec 21 2012 Winter solstice symbolizes the great Void, the Cosmic vagina, the great mother

a void void void void year! “Don’t avoid the Void.”- Tara Greene

With a LIBRA Ascendant peacemaking will be the flagship, beauty, fashion, relating in a more human way,

trying to keep things “nice”, ruled by Venus who is at the moment  in Sagittarius, she rules all

RELATIONSHIPS  and they will be more philosophical, more birds of a feather flock together,

lots of International peacekeeping or attempts to, going on

travelling will be big, lots of movement, a new educational platform will be introduced, laws granting equal rights to women will be put in place,

the ongoing Uranus Pluto square is highlighted even further in this chart

as URANUS is on the Descendant opposite the Ascendant and PLUTO is conjunct the SUN

at the IC or very roots and foundation of the year.

Pluto conjunct the Sun is a solar atomic bomb waiting to blow by revolutionary Uranus, toppling the everything is nice and OK Libran facade

PLuto conjunct the Sun indicates a shift from atomic power to solar, also danger from atomic energy- Fukushima is not over,

Pluto is Hades, Lord of Death, the Underworld, and the Sun is source,spirit, Psychologically and archetypal symbolizes the LIGHT is ONE with the dark side,the shadow, the unconscious,

duality, harmony, urge to separate, the Patriarchy’s power-over assumptions, are all highlighted in these symbols and they will be blown up as PLuto destroys what no longer serves the SOUL.

SUN  conjunct PLUTO symbolizes the death of the EGO, the lower side of the Sun is Royalty,pretense, Plutocracy,power-over

Uranus,the urge for freedom from past tyranny is squaring them both- the world-wide revolution is going to be even BIGGER this year everywhere

MERCURY – in early Capricorn -the communication’s planet is conjunct JUNO- the magic wand symbol- of Specifically Feminine Genius and the roots of that movement and squares URANUS in ARIES

is already planted and growing in the IDLE NO MORE movement of Indigenous people s in Canada,see-   http://idlenomore1.blogspot.ca/

again the Feminine is on the Rise, JUNO’s Feminine genius is what is needed to run government, business, corporations, to protect resources,

neighbourhoods.

GRAND TRINE  in Fire

Venus in Sagittarius is Trine the Leo moon and newly minted Minor planet ERIS at 21 degrees of Aries- the  Discordia Goddess who blows the whistle on all who don’t do right. She is like Lillith. I wont go into detail about her too much here. Astrologers have to incorporate these new planets.

I feel this trine brings higher minded Galactic Center  educational Sagittarian energy to heart centered Leo, and Eris’s who can’t stand by and not bring justice to those who harm the child. Leo is the child. We are all the children of the earth.

Also shows easy to ignite International affairs,  political leaders and despots being mowed down in the fire of the righteous indignation of the people.

Saturn in Scorpio in the 2nd house of resources squares Mars in Aquarius in the 4th house

The NRA vs the 2nd Amendment-Mars rules all weapons, especially guns and explosives and the 4th house is the home literally

Mars in Aquarius represents the drive and energy for change, removal of Saturnian restrictions, old outmoded ways of doing things, freedom, revolution, group thinking and new technological advances. Mars in Aquarius can also shows battles about who controls the Internet, more Wikileaks type of actions, hackers bringing out the filthy secrets of high finance, insurance, and many class actions against huge Pharmaceutical companies.

Saturn in Scorpio in the 2nd house means less resources, spending money, time to penny pinch,laws which limit spending, increased taxes,

Saturn  is death, limitations, obstacles, maturity, seniority, Patriarchy, corporations, laws,morals,

this will be an ongoing conflict which could escalate into a civil war scenario over gun laws, gay rights, abortion,freedoms of all kinds which people have taken for granted.

JUPITER RETROGRADE in GEMINI in the 9th house

Squares Chiron and Neptune in early Pisces in the 5th house of the heart,giving love, children, creativity and self-expression

Jupiter, ruler of Sagittarius and Pisces traditionally, rules the 9th house and alsoInternational relations, publishing, education, laws, specifically higher spiritual laws

Jupiter’s energy is always expansive, optimistic,generous, can be risk-taking. A square is a friction producing action, Gemini is duality, communication, debating, Jupiter is weak in Gemini and Retrograde

Chiron is the wounded healer, in Pisces it indicates a Higher Spiritual Law is the only way to mend international fences

differences in religion, customs, by seeing our true oneness as spiritual beings first,

I know it sounds very New Age but Neptune is in Pisces now for the first time since its discovery in 1846, it was last in its home sign in 1847-1861,

the beginning of the Civil War. Note the resurgence in movies about Abraham Lincoln that have come out in the last year.

Neptune in Pisces is the spiritual Oneness that the Dec 21 2012 New Agers were talking about, it had nothing to do with a hyped up Mayan calendar end date at all.

The trio of Goddesses in the 9th house

VESTA conjunct LILLITH at 12 degrees Gemini indicates a communion of focus on keeping the sacred fire burning through honoring the

dark feminine energy that Lillith symbolizes. FOcus on what parts of ourselves have been banished, the wild natural beauty and sexuality of woman, which can never be tamed. Vestal virgins were sacred high priestesses, heriodules, who were the Goddess embodied who held very high positions. All women in Greek times served at these temples before marriage. They lived in the temples, praying, doing ritual with the cycles of the moon, keeping the sacred alive in their bodies which were used to cleanse men who had been in war.

Dwarf planet Ceres at 23 Gemini the Great mother herself is opposite Venus in Sagittarius.

She is in square to Asteroid Athena at 27 degrees Pisces in the 6th house of work

More women will hold power jobs in the workforce. Mothering will be respected as a real job with extended pay and benefits for stay at home mothers.

A new dialogue will open between how much the work place and home needs to be melded together, and also health issues causes by overwork because of

Mental floss-Mercury and Uranus U-turn,HOT HOT astrology,mark your calendars!~ Tara Greene spiritual adviser

I can feel it starting already the proverbial Mercury Pre-retro mindf+ck  U know what to expect- the usual miscommunications, computer snafus and the like

Mercury rules GEMINI and VIRGO and the ordinary states of mind ,

 JUPITER & VENUS are presently rendezvousing  in the early mornings if you get up early you can see their beauty clearly.

 So Mercury going Retro July 14 –  Aug 8 will definitely exert that looking back in longing pull on the heart-strings from Venus and expansive Jupiter in AMBIGUOUS and already in twin states of double timing Gemini’s whilst caught in Mercury’s Retro Mental Floss net..

Mental Floss astrology Tara Greeneso think about that for a bit before it hits ya, don’t say I didn’t warn ya

URANUS precedes Mercury in RETROdom moving back on FRIDAY the 13th

R U SUPERSTITIOUS?

Uranus is the higher perspective, octave or calling of Mercury.

What this means is the HIGHER MIND and LOWER MIND are both going AWOL at the same time. Interesting isn’t it?

Uranus rules Aquarius and there isnt much action directly in the Aquarian sector these days, so we’ll breathe a sigh of relief there. Dont feel left out Aquarians…

BUT review, call backs, recalls, give it a rest, Relax, chill, reconsider, review, relent, recapitulate, do all the RE-things on the higher conscious and lower conscious levels. Uranus will move Retrograde for a much longer period- till DEC 13th!

Uranus rules Technology inventions,radicalism, revolutions, freedom, managements, collective thinking, as all that will be in the RE-zone for most of the rest of 2012.

Mercury Retrogrades feel better to me these days. Yes there is the practical things to not do like buy new things,

but Mercury is actually more powerful when Retro-it is slower and brighter and closer to the earth. It is in the more feminine receptive phase.

So renew yourself, relax, But get your travel plans done soon.

Happy Hanukkah,Saturnalia,Solstice,Christmas,Kwanzaa from Tara Greene spiritual psychic

 
 
SATURNALIA,an Ancient Roman Festival,was originally celebrated on Dec 17 but in spite of opposition became so popular it ran till Dec 23.

The Saturnalia was originally celebrated in Ancient Rome for only a day, but it was so popular it soon it lasted a week, despite Augustus’ efforts to reduce it to three days, and Caligula’s, to five. Like our Christmas, this important holy day was for more than fun and games. Saturnalia was a time to honor the god of sowing, and reaping, Saturn. But again, like our Christmas, it was also a festival day on which a public banquet was prepared.  A statue of Saturn Lord of Time/ was usually bound in Rope but at his feast the statue was unbound.

Saturnalia Was the Best Part of the Roman Year

The poet Catullus describes Saturnalia as the best of days. It was a time of celebration, visits to friends, and gift-giving, particularly of wax candles (cerei), and earthenware figurines (sigillaria). The best part of the Saturnalia (for slaves) was the temporary reversal of roles. Masters served meals to their slaves who were permitted the unaccustomed luxuries of leisure and gambling. Clothing was relaxed and included the peaked woollen cap that symbolized the freed slave, which looks an awful lot like yuo know who’s peaked red hat . A member of the familia (family plus slaves) was appointed,” Lord of Misrule”.

Men were allowed to expres their homosexual feelings in public. There was a huge element of sature and FOOL-ery, or scapegoating.

Macrobius, in his Saturnalia, creates an imaginary symposium among pagan intellectuals in which he offers an explanation for the varying length of the holiday. Originally, it was celebrated on only one day, the fourteenth before the Kalends of January. With the reform of the Julian calendar,  two days were added to December, and the Saturnalia was celebrated sixteen days before the Kalends (December 17), “with the result that, since the exact day was not commonly known—some observing the addition which Caesar had made to the calendar and others following the old usage—the festival came to be regarded as lasting for more days than one.

OPALIA = OPRAH

The original day now was given over to the Opalia, honoring Ops, who personified abundance and the fruits of the earth, and was the consort of Saturn. As the two deities represented the produce of the fields and orchards, so they also were thought to represent heaven and earth. It was for this reason, says Macrobius (I.10.20), that the two festivals were celebrated at the same time, the worshipers of Ops always sitting in prayer so that they touched the earth, mother of all.

I was struck with the etymological similie of Opalia, Goddess of abundance and Oprah’s name. Name destiny is very important signifier for me.

YULE Ancient Pagan/WICCAN  Winter Solstice Festival is the basis for Xmas.

YULE,  pronounced EWE-elle  is the name for the shortest day of Light in the Year, the Winter Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere . It is when the dark half of the year dies to the light half. Starting the next morning at sunrise, the sun climbs just a little higher and stays a little longer in the sky each day. Known as Solstice Night, or the longest night of the year, the sun’s “rebirth” was celebrated with much joy. Oour ancestors celebrated the rebirth of the Oak King, the Sun King, giver of Life. From this day forward, the days would become longer. As the people participated in the mystique of the turning of the wheel of Life, their participation and prayers to honour this propituous time was all important. For if the Goddess did not bring rebirth to her Son the sun, and the Sun’s Light did not return then that signalled the death of all life on the earth.

Bonfires were lit in the fields, and crops and trees were ‘wassailed” with toasts of spiced cider. Children were escorted from house to house with gifts of clove spiked apples and oranges which were laid in baskets of evergreen boughs and wheat stalks dusted with flour. Apples and oranges represented the sun. The boughs  symbolized immortality (evergreens were sacred to the Celts who worshipped trees, because they did not “die” thereby representing the eternal aspect of the Divine). The wheat stalks portrayed the harvest, and the flour was accomplishment of triumph, light, and life. Holly and ivy not only decorated the outside, but also the inside of homes, in hopes Nature Sprites would come and join the celebration. A sprig of Holly was kept near the door all year long as a constant invitation for good fortune to visit tthe residents. Mistletoe was also hung as decoration. It represented the seed of the Divine, and at Midwinter, the Druids would travel deep into the forest to harvest it.

The ceremonial Yule log was the highlight of the Solstice festival. Traditionally, the log must either have been harvested from the householder’s land, or given as a gift… it must never have been bought. Once dragged into the house and placed in the fireplace it was decorated in seasonal greenery, doused with cider or ale, and dusted with flour before set ablaze by a piece of last years log, (held onto for just this purpose). The log would burn throughout the night, then smolder for 12 days after before being ceremonially put out. Ash is the traditional wood of the Yule log. It is the sacred world tree of the Teutons, known as Yggdrasil. An herb of the Sun, Ash brings light into the hearth at the Solstice. 

The World Tree, Yggdrasil is the one in which ODEN is suspended from inthe tarot Image of the HANGED MAN. This is where the Nordic RUNES came from.

Winter Solstice 2011

Winter Solstice

DEC 21/22 2011  in Northern Hemisphere

The Winter solstice marks one of the 4 main quarters in the Year.

As such it can be used as a map to orient and plan the next 3 months of your and the world’s  business with.

I’ve set the chart to Toronto Canada where I live it is different by 1 degree if the Solstice was created for Washington D.C.

This is a POWER-full solstice chart with the SUN conjunct PLUTO, yes Pluto is still considered to be extremely important to Astrologers as it rules the Soul, resurrecction, transformation, death and rebirth, wealth, garbage, the unconscious and the shadow.

The chart is literally a symbol of the SUN the source/King/Jesus/at the bottom quadrant of the chart  in the house marked 3, cheek to cheek with, Pluto Lord of the Dark, Death, the Underworld on the other side of the fence so to speak, in the house marked 4,the house of the Unconsious.  It’s a perfect alignment of what Solstice is all about!

The Moon is in late Scorpio and Scorpio is the sign of death, rebirth, transformation itself. Moo is Scorpio sugnifies this next 3 months as major EMOTIONAL rebirths. In the 2nd house it is also related to money, resources, tangible things, real estate, ergo the stock market.

MARKET VOLATILITY  and the Sun represents GOLD and Gold may loose even more of its shine.

Venus planet of women,love, also money is at 1 degree of Aquarius indicating anew beginning in worldwide lobbying, protests, freedom fighting by women to revolutionize the world situation. Venus in the 4th house indicates freedom from old restirctions, agrass roots, home made revolution.

MERCURY is conjunct the North Node in SAGITTARIUS also in the 3rd house.  Mercury planet of communications is urging you me and all of us to go to HIGHER LAW, what the Native Americans call SACRED LAW, as opposed to man-made laws. The 3rd house is all abuot comunications in your vicinity so the image of a LOCAL, higher truth, honesty,truth being mandated, lobbied, in the news. The North Node reporesents the highest spiritual goals. In Sagittarius this is the Sign of the Galactic Center and as we are only one year away from the DEC. 21 2012 date of the arising of higher consciousness, this is awonderful sign.

SATURN is in the 1st house at 27 degree of Libra indicating a seriousness, maturation, karmic, limitations, obstacles and a testing period throughout the next three months.

JUPITER is opposite Saturn at 00 degrees of TAURUS Rx. Jupiter is still Retrograde. But Jupiter Turns DIRECT on CHRISTMAS DAY. This is a beautiful and lovely gift of Jupiter to turn Direct motion on this day after moving backwards since June 2nd. 

Jupiter in TAURUS is so simple down to earth, sensual, salt of the earth.

 With Jupiter in Taurus it is about embodying and enjoying the fruits of the earth, appreciating  food, the body andthe simple pleasures. Jupiter the Ancient Greek God Zeus, is also equated to Yahweh. Jupiter is bountiful, the law-giver the governer of Sacred LAw that we spoke about with the Mercury North Node Conjunction. Jupiter in Taurus helps  us appreciate the simple things in life. It is grounding, rooting, conects us to the earth.

One other planets are also at ZERO degrees, URANUS the planet of revolution, invention, freedom, is at Zero degrees of Aries in the 6th house near the cusp or handle of the 7th house quadrant. URANUS has been a major player in 2011 inducing all the ARAB countries to incite revolution from dictators. This fomentation will continue for many years to come. Zero degrees Aries is one of the CARDINAL points in the year representing the degree of the Sun’s ingress at Spring into Aries.

NEPTUNE is stil conjunct to Chiron the Wounded Healer.

Neptune at 28 degrees of Aquarius, and Chiron whose symbol is a key at 1 degree of Aquarius have opened up the psychic telepathic buondaries for us all since 2010. In the 5th house that is reserved for the heart chakra, for the love of children, and creative self- expression it is a symbol of spirituality,losing of boundaries, kindness, reformation, organization, freedom,{ Neptune in Aquarius} healing from  addictions { Chiron in Pisces}. We must act from our hearts, we must act to protect the child within and without, we are all ONE in spirit. Awakening from the addictions of  illusion, drugs,religious ideas which separate and dominate, feeling our inter-connections.

Last but not Least MARS is in Virgo at 17 degrees in the 12 th house, which is the house of hidden enemies, self-undoing,karma,secrets, the Unconsious. Mars, God of War, in the last house, the house of spirituality, illusion and delusion, addictions in the workaholic, highly critical earth sign Virgo shows how the warmongers of the earth are operating behind the scenes, manipulating the workforces, the economy, the accounting system for their own selfish karmic reasons.

Mars in Virgo in the 12th is a dangerous enemy becuase he is wearing a cloak of INVISIBILITY,as he is dwelling in the house of the Unconscious. MArs in Virgo shows where and how we criticise ouselves and others. It is the blame game, lack of substantial confidence. Mars in Virgo is also fighting over earth’s natural resources. we shall see more of that in the next 3 months.

Use this chart as a guide for your own life for planning the next quarter of the year. Whatever sign you are, Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces. Oh that Ophiucus stuff? never mind all that.
