Uranus turns Retrograde, revolution redux

Uranus the wild and crazy kinky planet that orbits at a 90-degree angle, turns Retrograde July 29- December 29th. Uranus is the “Higher octave” of  communications planet Mercury. Uranus symbolizes disobeying the rules, thinking outside the box, Revolution and freedom. Uranus or Prometheus in the Greek myths stole fire from the Gods and gave it to mankind to help save them. The Gods were angry and punished him.

Uranus, was discovered March 13, 1781 by William Herschel, born in Germany but   serving as a British astronomer in Bath England. Hershel discovered Uranus with “modern” technology with the use of his large advanced telescopes.  Uranus was the first planet since antiquity to be discovered beyond Saturn, upsetting the old order of the cosmos. 

Here is the whole story on Uranus or Ouranos/Prometheus in Greek myths.

Uranus was a Titan and his name means Heaven. He married Gaia the Earth.  Cronus/Saturn one of their sons, envied his father’s power and castrated him throwing his testicles into the sea, from which Venus/Aphrodite was born. 

The creation of Man by Prometheus by J.M. Hunt 
“Prometheus and Epimetheus were spared imprisonment in Tartarus/Hades  because they had not fought with their fellow Titans during the war with the Olympians. They were given the task of creating man. Prometheus shaped man out of mud, and Athena breathed life into his clay figure.
Prometheus had assigned Epimetheus the task of giving the creatures of the earth their various qualities, such as swiftness, cunning, strength, fur, and wings. Unfortunately, by the time he got to man Epimetheus had given all the good qualities out and there were none left for man. So Prometheus decided to make man stand upright as the gods did and to give him fire.
Prometheus loved man more than the Olympians, who had banished most of his family to Tartarus. So when Zeus decreed that man must present a portion of each animal be sacrificed to the gods, Prometheus decided to trick Zeus. He created two piles, one with the bones wrapped in juicy fat, the other with the good meat hidden in the hide. He then bade Zeus to pick. Zeus picked the bones. Since he had given his word, Zeus had to accept this pile as his share for future sacrifices. In his anger over the trick, he took fire away from man. However, Prometheus lit a torch from the sun and brought it back again to man. Zeus was enraged that man again had fire. He decided to inflict a terrible punishment on both man and Prometheus.
To punish man, Zeus had Hephaestus create a mortal of stunning beauty. The gods gave the mortal many gifts of wealth. He then had Hermes give the mortal a deceptive heart and a lying tongue. This creation was Pandora, the first woman.  { LILITH} A final gift was a jar which Pandora was forbidden to open. Thus completed, Zeus sent Pandora down to Epimetheus, who was staying amongst the men.

Uranus Retrograde, Astrology Tara Greene

Vulcan chaining Prometheus/Uranus

Prometheus had warned Epimetheus not to accept gifts from Zeus, but Pandora’s beauty was too great and he allowed her to stay. Eventually, Pandora’s curiosity about the jar she was forbidden to open became intolerable to her. She opened the jar and out flew all manner of evils, sorrows, plagues, and misfortunes. However, the bottom of the jar held one good thing – hope.
Zeus was angry at Prometheus for three things: being tricked by the sacrifices, stealing fire for man, and refusing to tell Zeus which of Zeus’s children would dethrone him. Zeus had his servants, Force and Violence, seize Prometheus, take him to the Caucasus Mountains, and chain him to a rock with unbreakable adamantine chains. Here he was tormented day and night by a giant eagle tearing at his liver. Zeus gave Prometheus two ways out of this torment. He could tell Zeus who the mother of the child that would dethrone him was, or meet two conditions. The first was that an immortal must volunteer to die for Prometheus, and the second was that a mortal must kill the eagle and unchain him. Eventually, Chiron the Centaur agreed to die for him and Heracles killed the eagle and unbound him.”Interesting that Chiron is also primal in this story. 

URANUS rules think tanks, technology, individual and collective rights, managers and organisations, inventiveness and pioneering. The planet of kinkyness also rules alternatives to “normal” heterosexuality such as the LGBT movement.

 While URANUS is RETROGRADE it doesn’t mean the revolution stops, although many Sanders supporters feel that way. This is is a chance to reflect on the revolution that has been happening in the world at large and also the urge to free ourselves up in our personal lives.

A revolutionary fever has been in the air and in Bernie Sanders speeches since he first started campaigning for President. Revolution is in the air in Turkey, albeit all revolutions are not created equal and don’t mean a better deal for everyone either.  Pokeman Go’s big success is also a Uranian thing. 

Sanders supporters have been awakened and that is URANUS’s energy. They have seen the Light, that is URANUS’s bolt of lightning wake up call. Yes most people are very angry, upset and will walk away from the whole dirty politics of the DNC. Others will want to continue what Sanders inspired and work behind the scenes to create real revolutionary change. The DNC is very deeply entrenched. They used Sanders to test the waters. Then once he got too popular he was shut down by the big boys at the top. I think most people can see that. 

You are in your MID-LIFE CRISIS if you were born in 1975

 born in 1975? you are going through your Mid-Life crisis which is a Uranus opposed to Uranus at your birth. Break away from your ususal hudrum routine.

While URANUS moves backwards we have a chance to revision our revolution.  Meet up with your tribe, replot your strategies, aim to work behind the scenes. Retrograde energies are like that.  This may mean some back peddling from Republican conservatives who are notoriously anti-gay rights and women’s rights. We must be ever vigilant to protect our freedoms.  What do you think?

Look at where URANUS is when you were born to see how much of a natural rebel you are. Also look at and where Uranus will be transiting Retrograde from @ 24+ degrees ARIES  to 20+ degrees ARIES. This is where you have to review your freedom fighter status. Cue: Street-fighting man by The Rolling Stones -play it backwards for hidden meanings.

Serious Retrogrades,slow culture Astrology

I don’t  know about you but Mars Retrograde has me feeling really exhausted. On top of Mercury in its shadow, Saturn Jupiter and Pluto are also Retro. Are you feeling tired? It’ts more to do with where MARS is Retrograding through your natal chart and the aspects its making.

The best thing to do is slow down and just chill. We spend too much time racing around anyways these days. Time some time to value SLOW CULTURE, cooking, slow handed love.

TURTLE WISDOM MEDICINE.

Turtle is a very revered animal to Native Indigenous people’s. North America is called Turtle Island.  Turtle carries its home wherever it is. There is no need to go anywhere else because everything it needs is attached to it. Remember it’s not the vehicle you travel in that matters, it’s the quality of your life journey. Turtle plods along, taking its time to observe and be present. How you travel has everything to do with what you find at the end of the journey. Turtles live to be very ancient wise beings because they never hurried, time operates differently for them.  Turtles see the world and slowly advance, knowing there is no need to rush. This is how to win the race now. Let’s take turtle’s gifts as medicine for the Retrogrades. 

Turtle spirit animals, Tara Greene

INSPIRATIONAL DAILY CARD

Moon enters Sagittarius April 24 which heats things up and inspires philosophical queries, long distance travels, overly honest communications,  and a love of nature, sports and animals. 

Moon inconjuncts the TAurus SUN which is the How do we slow down now issues?

Moon conjuncts MARS late in day PDT

and Monday EST. 

Mars Retro conjunct Saggy Moon wants to trot off into the wild west. 

So i would do a slo-mo review of: past travels, learning experiences, Sagittarius lovers, things you promised and never fulfilled.   Things that happened to spontaneously  combust, travel plans you wanted to take but didn’t for whatever reason, educational courses that didn’t happen,  or you never finished, all those New Years resolutions, failures, inconsistencies, and other areas where Mars was not functioning fully. Just let all that go…more baggage. You don’t need to go slower than slow.

Look back at where you were 2.2 years ago when Mars was last Retrograde from March 1st- May 21st where it retrograded backwards from 27  -9 degrees LIBRA.  What was going on in your relationships at that time? Old lovers may return again.

Don’t push yourself, this wont work, rest as much as you need and can. This is a recharge time. 

USE IT WISELY

Please note I am prepping to go to Arizona early April 26 so I will be in transit and will try to write something if I can. If not there are tons of article to scroll through on this site..

Karmic North Node, Earth Trines,Big winners

Jan 14 SUN, the golden one, conjuncts, ass-backwards Mercury Retrograde today @ 23+ degrees Capricorn. Time to rehash those old brilliant ideas now. Get out your old notebooks.

MERCURY trines JUPITER and the NORTH NODE in Virgo in the evening at the same degree. 

Wow this is very much a Karmic pointer, a golden compass. 

Do: re-dedicate yourself to an ideal, a practical goal, a spiritual and physical anchor to guide you when you get lost. 

If you have planets at 18-28 degrees TAURUS  you benefit from a grand trine.

I bet the three lucky tickets that won the POWER BALL January 13th who are divvying up almost a billion dollars each have planets or strong angles/angels in their charts conjunct these degrees I’d bet on it. 

Jupiter and the North Node will be within 8 degrees of each other in Virgo until late July. 

Jupiter ranges from 23 degrees – 13+ degrees at the end of its Retrograde on May 8th.

Jupiter and the NORTH Node have another conjunction  at 15 + degrees Virgo on JUNE 21 the SOLSTICE. The 15th degrees of all signs are the most powerful ones.

The North Node moves backwards  to 13 degrees at the end of July.

earth trines Buddha, Tara Greene astrology

Lord Buddha meditating  by Natalie Glasson

Use this time well. We need to stay very grounded this year. Lots of earth energy, it’s a practical down to business time. Be humble, ditch your ego. We are not superhumans, we are mortals.  This is real ground control. We are focussing on planet earth and not being spaced out  right now.I thought this image of the Buddha was most appropriate.

Check out where these degrees 13-23 degrees VIRGO fall in your natal chart to see what you need to review,what you need to discard, what you need to focus on, your health regimen and diet need to be paid particular attention too. That’s VIRGO Digestion.

The Moon is in PISCES making contacts to Venus in Sagittarius by square,- give more love.

and sextiling Mercury and The Sun @ 8:31 am PST  which is sweet kisses from the Source falling like rain like the Buddha pic. Moon  then goes Void of course for most of the day.

Have FAITH, forgive yourself, have compassion with the world. Do Buddhist meditations. 

This is an end of the monthly tour of the zodiac. Take time to think about where you were a month ago. Time seems to be dilating for me these days. Are you finding that too?

Virgo Monday

It’s a very Virgo uptight, nitpicky Monday.

It is really HOT and humid here in SoCal, Venice Beach. I am on the 2nd floor, wide awake its 3:15 a.m. and too hot to sleep. I can hear Carole King singing Up On the Roof in my mind, like I used to hear it on hot sweltering nights when I was young. 

I’m stumped. I can’t really think of what I want to say and that’s unusual for me. Monday ain’t too bad although you always have to watch your P’s and Q’s  with a Virgo Moon.Moon is  busy tidying up. I mentioned the sextile to Mars in Cancer opposing Chiron in Pisces and sextiling Mercury in Cancer. as a great healing and communicating aspect.

also a difficulty quincunx from Moon with Uranus. 

don’t try any new fangled tech today. 

My Virgo South Node is double checking that I informed you of this info already right? 

Virgo cartoon tara Greene

I do try dear readers to write something every day. I am also on Holiday and need to pick a new website template. My other older website is so old I may get the antique website award at this rate. 

I’m also thinking about Venus Retrograde with Saturn Retrograde, both highly personal planets from July 25-August 2nd. That 9 days will be very intense with many, many old relationships being tested.  

Uranus also turns Retrograde on the 26th {untill Christmas 2015} and then joins PLUTO, NEPTUNE, CHIRON, SATURN, VENUS and CERES apparently moving backwards. 

That’s a lot of backwards moving apparitions, more than usual at once. Some are personal some transpersonal, they have different nuances.

All I want for Christmas is a direct moving Uranus! 

The Uranian/Aquarian Retrograde makes it out with the old in with the new for sure. 

it’s exciting.

Mercury direct today, Daily Inspiration Card

Communications snafus have been heavy while Mercury is almost stationary. The entire subway system shut down in Toronto on Monday costing the city millions of dollars in lost work hours. This Mercury Retrograde  in Gemini where the planet is the most powerful, in one of its home signs, the other being VIRGO,  has been one of the worst.

Hey Gemini’s and Virgo’s do you have any testaments to this effect?

So thankfully THE MESSENGER turns direct today @ 3:32 pm PDT/ 6:32 pm EDT/10:32 pm GMT.

now you can go ahead and buy that Apple watch, and consume anew, but be forewarned Mercury is still in its “shadow phase ” till June 27th.  which means tread lightly till then.

Cardinal cross energies in effect today. Aries Moon square Pluto conjunct Uranus.

Moon also trines JUPITER in a few minutes which is good for starting new big projects.

Moon sextiles Sun and Mars later today.

Mars in GEMINI squares Chiron in Pisces

The meaning of Mars in Gemini is like a boxer or a very articulate person fighting with words. Words do have power. If someone attacks you verbally, send them a shower of love,and if you need to cry then do, it is healing.

 

Inspirational Daily Card3ofwand Tarot Tara Greene

3 of Wands from the Renaissance Tarot

This version of the 3 of wands called to me as it reminds me of the Vesta, Venus, Saturn energies we are still working with and under the influence of. It feels very evocative, and protective. A triangle, pyramid, or trinity is the most powerful and strong shape. 

The three’s are beginnings, the archetype of the mother, father child in Egyptian symbolism which was adapted through other religions.

The first three Sephirot in the Tree of Life are the highest archetypes from which all else comes to being; Kether, Chokmah and Binah. These are a world of their own called Atziluth the archetypal world itself. It is primal fire.  All cards numbered three carry this energy.

This card emanates from Binah, symbol of Venus or the Great Mother.

This card also governs the 2nd decan of Aries. 11-20 degrees which represents the 2nd fire sign Leo.. Uranus will enter the 20th degree of Aries on June 20th just before the Summer Solstice.

This is card of new beginnings, establishing power.

This card is related to the Aries Sun. A such it represents individual will power, passion, independence, strength,the big bang spark of life. It is very masculine in a Feminine Sephirot. 

It also implies partnerships.

Air Trines, Gemini “talk to the wind”

The Bull transforms into Twins as the Moon enters GEMIINI Jan 28 @ 2:36 pm PST/5:36 pm EST/ 10:36 pm GMT 

That double talking, two-faced Gemini energy makes love difficult, as

Moon squares Venus in Pisces @ 5:57 pm PST

then the windy Moon opposes Saturn in Sagittarius

and watch your words as Gemini energy gets us into some big serious trouble for being double timing liars. 

Jan 29 

Your head will be in a whirl as Gemini Moon makes 7 aspects in typical Gemini flit around fashion.

Yes Gemini flirts flits and flies around making three heavy squares,

and Gemini hates the HEAVIES!

the first is to NEPTUNE in Pisces

Was that a dream or was it real? Was I a butterfly dreaming I was a person or? I believe what I think…

the 2nd is Moon square MARS in Pisces

Do you have dysfunctional anger lurking just below the surface of your first exit plan? 

3rd. Moon Squares Chiron in Pisces

Lets talk about where it hurts, and how it hurts, nah it don’t hurt.

Besides those three toughies

there is a GRAND AIR TRINE

I don’t remember a grand air trine in a long time. Do you?

Gemini MOON trines Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius and the SUN too!

Retro Mercury rules Gemini { and Virgo} so it’s a real THROWBACK Thursday,

 its’ sunny Upbeat, lofty, whooshy.

Inspirational Card of the Day

pinup girl Astrology Tara Greene

Rethink, rehash, rewind, review and rework those brilliant light bulbs of inspiration. 

Moon also makes a sweet little sextile to Uranus. Sound ticklish. It’s easy to get away with weirdness.

Gemini Moon also quincunxes PLUTO 

and everyone knows {except you} that you never mess around with Pluto, Lord of the Dead.

So be very careful.  I know you think you can fly off on your winged sandals with your silver tongue talk and never have to face the consequences…but watch it!

Mercury, your ruling Planet is Retrograde. 

Oh right. Vedic astrologers say planets are at their strongest when Retrograde because they appear larger.  Western Astrologer says A planet is weak when moving Retrograde.

Whatever mischief  this Gemini Moon energy brings will be short lived of course. Peeps with strong Gemini planets  can easily back out of it when Mercury goes direct. You knew that. 

Some interesting energies coming up Friday.

Earth fire trines, stay grounded its almost here…

I woke up this morning feeling inspired about Saturn entering SAGITTARIUS. There is a count down going on..now till December 23. I had a 24 line poem. I will post it.  Also I keep asking MY HIGHER GUIDES for visions for my 2015 psychic predictions… thinking about the future. Also Canadian singer Avril Lavigne- who on first glance I saw had some heavy Saturn affliction transits in her natal chart now- she reported she had serious health problems in the news. Also focussing on  George Clooney, Russia, the world, movies, stock market. I will record my video with my tarot reading for 2015 over the weekend and post it.

I am also planning on making this BLOG by subscription  in the NEW YEAR and transferring over to a new name.

WEEKEND FORECAST

There are two important fire trines and 2 earth trines this weekend. I’ll save the most important FIRE trine between the SUN and JUPITER till later, it occurs on Sunday. Remember to stay grounded, it will help that the Moon is in Virgo. We are ramping up to the 6th EXACT Uranus Pluto square Dec 14/15.

earth fire astrology magic tara Greene

We are ramping up to the 6th EXACT Uranus Pluto square Dec 14/15.

read my article about the VIOLET ray, 3rd eye, 6th sense planetary activation  http://www.taratarot.com/id189.html

I believe the current drop in world OIL PRICES will stay that way and shows we are now on a different track from the old GDP and oil dependence this is also part of the unfolding URANUS- new cycle, PLUTO- power oligarchs etc square.

Dec 12

early morning Fire trine between Mercury in Sagittarius to Jupiter in LEO

Mercury in Sagittarius is known to be totally honest, and shoot their mouths off. Even though Mercury is weak in Sagittarius,and Jupiter, the 9th signs’ planet is also Retrograde, we can see this as shooting some positive arrows off into the Higher Courts of justice especially over the CIA Torture report and Bill Cosby, and police being held to task in the U.S. over racial murders.

Edward Snowden now widely seen as a hero for leaking classified NSA documents was interviewed on Dec 11 about this,see link below

So shoot off your own mouth and arrows of truth now. Rewards will come back to you later when Jupiter is again direct at this same degree 22+ degrees Leo next year in July 2015.  It’s closely conjunct to my Natal Pluto in the 9th house.

WHERE IS JUPITER RETROGRADING in your natal chart?

Each house carries a different meaning. Ask question of how this is affecting you..

Virgo MOON TRINES VENUS  in Capricorn at 1+ degree in the afternoon dec 12

Earthy trines are times to get cosy, comfy, practical and take responsibility.

Dec 13 in the morning

Moon trines Pluto in Capricorn – remembering DAD

Also good  for long term career plans, balancing the budget, respecting your elders, feeling sentimental about dear old dad.

For me it is 3 years on December 14 that my dear old dad, Harry Greene passed away. My Dad was 96 years old  when he died, so he lived a very long life and was clear mainly right till the end. I should live to be in as good shape as he was. My Dad never exercised or watched what he ate at all. He was a very fast walker though. He never complain about getting old, or any physical pain until he was 90 and his knees started to hurt him.  My Dad was  a Virgo, the messiest Virgo you could ever meet actually, but he had every stock from the market in his head- he was a broker. The knees are Capricorn’s most vulnerable body part.   I continuously make this subliminal slip and always write Dada which I have to fix when I write about him. I was Daddy’s little girl and his only child. I miss you Dad. I will light  a candle. We will watch old videos and drink a toast and tell some jokes in his honour. My Dad loved comedy and he was my “funny Daddy” when I was a girl.

Moon qunincunx’s Uranus and opposes Chiron

Virgo don’t like their routines to be disrupted, even by a revolution. Or for some hi tech new apparatus. Moon opposite Chiron brings up feeling of being wounded and vulnerable.  Be nicer to yourself VIRGO and everyone. You all have a Virgo piece of your pie in your natal chart.

Gotta go

Driving with brakes, dirty dancing with the stars,Tara Greene

Feeling a bit wingy these days?

Yes Jupiter is in Leo now and it will be BIG HAIR YEAR maybe even mullet reminiscing?

But SATURN is S-L-O-W -as lead MOLASSES as he turns DIRECT on July 20 @ 16 + degrees Scorpio YAY almost EXACTLY on my Ascendant  but still in the 12th house. In what house does the karma change direction in? 

NEW Projects, and emotional transformations- sexual, monetary, etc.  which have been simmering in the 8th house pressure cooker of power, secrets, control can now bubble over. All that has been holding you back since early March when Saturn turned RETROGRADE @  23 degrees+ can now slowly move ahead and be built anew.

Saturn will take until October 27 to get out of its own heavy shadow.  It’s been a very heavy intense SaTurn Retro in Scorpio for those whom Saturn has been crushing. I have many depressed, divorcing, suicidal clients who I feel for immensely.

Saturn will make ONE LAST RETROGRADE in SCORPIO in 2015, from mid-June till August- a very short period, in late degrees and that’s it for another 28-29 years. Gotta do your transformational work when the energy is the most intense. Folks seriously. Saturn in Sagittarius starting next year is a whole different karmic feedbag.

.MARS enters SCORPIO on July 25 his HOME SIGN to take action, bring testosterone, passion, macho and defenses. Mars speeds up and kick ass in  the 8th sign . So red hot dirty sex, dirty money, dirty laundry, transformative, and psychological matters.

INSPIRATIONAL IMAGE OF the DAY

Dirty Dancing Astrology Tara greene

DIRTY DANCING anyone?

MARS conjuncts SATURN at 17 degrees + SCORPIO on a VIRGO NEW MOON on AUG 25 so MARK THAT DATE DOWN.

That”s a heavy, dangerous, potentially disastrous day. Where is that in your natal chart? No more holding back.

URANUS is  as fast as Lightning in Aries- and about to turn RETROGRADE  July 21 @ 16 + ARIES. 

All planets are felt to be at their most intense when they change direction. YOU FEELIN’ it?

THE TWO planets SATURN the karmic builder and COSMIC COP- the Grim reaper and URANUS planet of the weird, HI TECH, individual, revolutionary, freedom fighters and innovators are in an almost exact QUINCUNX- a 150 degree aspect also called an inconjunct. The two planets are five signs of – 30 degrees apart and in totally different elements. Water and Fire don’t mix.  Saturn is tradition, Uranus is the shiny and new. It is like the current ongoing clash of Israeli Palestinian escalation and Russia and Ukraine.

 We are all feeling that tug of war inside of ourselves. SHOULD I STAY OR SHOULD I GO?  Do I do what feels safe and secure or do I dare to break free and venture out on my own?

If you have planets at 16 degrees of VIRGO  then those planets are also being drawn into what is called a YOD or FINGER of GOD Aspect,with the two other planets.

HOW TO WERK IT Feel the influence of each planet and let them have their say. You will need to use Mars in Libra to listen and be an impartial peace maker and broker the deal. 

Plus VENUS enters Cancer  July 18.  VENUS clothed in the MOON MOTHER’s s robes, very nurturing Venus is the EMPRESS, Tarot Trump # 3 and Cancer is the CHARIOT in the TAROT Trump #7 which = 2014. Picture the Goddess of Love driving the Chariot of  Victory.

VENUS will square URANUS at 16 degrees Cancer/ARIES on July 31. That should blow the roof off of your love life for better or worse.

VENUS will also Oppose PLUTO on JULy  27 at 11 degrees +  Cancer/Capricorn Pluto is Rx.

We have VENUS entering into the Cardinal Planetary alignment now bringing LOVE from a very feminine perspective into the mix. I’l write about Venus separately. VERY INTERESTING.

Mercury Trines Neptune on July 18 at 7 + degrees Cancer/PISCES 

Very romantic and creative, dreamy, be near water if you can and spend time reflecting.

An excellent day to get married, congrats to those who are.

Dream beauteous dreams. 

Plan on working with your dreams with intention that night.

Summer Solstice 3 month world forecast by Tara Greene

SUMMER arrives in the Northern Hemisphere Saturday June 21 2014 @ 3:51 am PDT /6:51 am EDT/ 10:51 am GMT

and if you live North of the 49th parallel you know what kind of a HELLISH friggin freezing cold POLAR VORTEX winter we had which went on for about 7 months. SUMMER can’t come any moment too soon. It has still been  well below average temperatures in Toronto. Although we do get a day over 16 hours long on the Summer Solstice -and only 8 hours long on the Winter one. BTW Toronto is at 79.24 43.42.  It’s gotten bigger since I was born here.

Winter begins South of the EQUATOR in South America where the FIFA WORLD CUP is being played in Brazil.

Happy Winter solstice to you.

Inspirational Card of the Day

APOLLO the SUN

SUN HELIOS in his solar chariot Tara Greene

 

SUMMER SOLSTICE had been celebrated since time out of mind as a time when the SUN KING- APOLLO or HELIOS as the Greeks called him, peaks and dies and the Goddess Time of growth, fertility, nurturing expands. The SUN touches the TROPIC of CANCER and marks Summers beginning in the North. In SIDEREAL Astrology the Sun doesn’t reach the Constellation of CANCER until July 16. SYNCHRONICITY and Jupiter enters Tropical LEO on that day.

The chart looks the same for both North and South countries event though they magnetically relate to different poles.

the INGRESS charts for each season are considered to be charts one can use for divination for the next 3 months.

Let’s check it out shall we?

SUMMER SOLSTICE Astro

click on the chart to view larger

Set for WASHINGTON D.C. the ASCENDANT is at 14 degrees of CANCER which is exactly where the U.S. SUN is and the FIXED STAR Sirius, the soul of Ancient Egyptian Goddess ISIS.

Because the SUN is conjunct to Mercury which is  RETROGRADE and on the NORTH STAR- see previous article -and opposite the Galactic Center this indicates a great time to follow the Highest intellectual view while being firmly rooted in a Galactic spiritual perspective. That’s means bigger than small-minded stuff-like you and me as well as a county’s ego’s.

The next three months will be review time. We wont be ready to advance till Autumn Equinox on September 22 with PLUTO turning DIRECT on that date and a NEW MOON the next day.

If you would like to join me in welcoming AUTUMN in the Northern Hemisphere in ceremony I will be in SEDONA ARIZONA once again to celebrate on the 22 and the NEW MOON on the 24th. Life will look totally different by then.

We are still in the last of the GRAND CARDINAL CROSS ENERGY

MOON in ARIES- IMPULSIVE FEELINGS an emotional storm.

The Moon always symbolizes the prevailing MOOD of the people.

indicating a time of new impulsive feelings and emotions, fast launches, quickened feelings, new passions, new intuitive inspirations and a warning against rash impulsive decision-making.

PEOPLE will be IMPATIENT, RUDE, angry, THIS IS a WAR FARE EMOTIONAL state, Vigilante tones, frustrated emotions, moon in Aries also has to do with women being RAPED- we have seen this issue coming up strongly in the world news and it will continue to do so.

MOON is CONJUNCT URANUS, square to Jupiter in Cancer, opposite MARS in LIBRA and square to PLUTO in Capricorn  which is

DIRECTLY opposite the U.S. SUN as it has been for months now. Pluto is Retrograde till September 22.

The grenade has been unpinned and in the hand of a revolutionary militant fascist, Islamist Fundamentalist, etc etc.  A time fraught with even more chaos, violence, revolutionary change, war, conflict, battle, explosions. Mars in LIBRA will attempt to be diplomatic but is weakened in Libra by being debilitated. America is under very intense energies to die and be reborn. Just like that Lana Del Ray song- We are born to die. It’s Very philosophical.

JUPITER in CANCER in the 1st house at 24 degrees. Jupiter is in his final Cancerian swim now. But his presence is exalted in Cancer and Jupiter has buoyed up the economy- although bloated may be a better word to describe it. Jupiter inflates whatever he touches. Jupiter in Cancer is too much of the old America Rah rah rah, MOM and apple pie and homeland security and security surveillance. Too much ego, too much eating and consuming and hiding -barricading oneself in one’s home out of fear,because of emotional needyness. Lots of emotional high tides, water storms, and flooding in the weather. Very fertile time for women. Everyone needs more emotional security.

SATURN is RETROGRADE at 17 degrees SCORPIO in the 5th house

intense obsessive emotional ruthlessness and power struggles over children, teen pregnancies, birth control, abortion, social support. Saturn is fear and  depression, suicide. This can be a reviewing of mental health needs for teens. Symbolized hiding one’s light and love in the darkness and shadows.

The 5th house is creative self- expression,. The need to support more arts directly as a health means to explore the dark side of the psyche. Expressive arts therapies.

VENUS at 27 degrees Taurus on the Pleiades, in the 11th house

The famed 7 sisters; VENUS rules TAURUS and so we are seeing a BULL MARKET for now. Taurus rules all the earthy values, minerals, food, gold, oil in a loose extent. Venus in Taurus indicates our need to get reconnected to the land, to growing our own food, to being in touch with our bodies. Venus in Taurus is a sensual, body conscious and body care, romantic time. Women are revelling in their own sensuality. The Pleiades is also the place of Higher intelligent benevolent E.T.’s.  A good time to meditate on these entities.Venus in Taurus also makes art, appreciates fine wine, food, music, singing. In the 11th this is public art, community oriented creativity, Do something to beautify your neighbourhood.

DWARF PLANET ERIS- like MALEFICENT is conjunct the SOUTH node and the MOON

they are bunched together within 5 degrees of each other in ARIES. A sense of a woman scorned, a GODDESS scorned, revenge and a plot that was planted in a previous round. An unconscious will to fight, to break-through to challenge the old order. Women and mothers are mad about not being able to be free to live their lives under their our autonomy.

CHIRON IN PISCES is Retrograde and in a GRAND WATER TRINE with Saturn Retrograde and Jupiter

This is a very HEALING transit. Saturn in Scorpio is FIERCE, obsessive and never forgets. Its SHADOW contents may be deeply held or consciously forgotten but the cellular memories which are housed in every cell of one’s body holds the healing keys. Embracing your pain and suffering and flowing with it, this Water trine will make it easier. Intuitive healing is also favoured. Listen to your feelings. CHIRON in PISCES is the last call for letting go. Let it go. I won’t put :LET IT GO on as a Video though.

Using Astro-Cartography which  predicts activities for various cities and places according to the Planetary lines crossing them and the energies which the planets govern.

Feeling tired? Mars Retrograde Astrology tonic advice

I’m So TIRED by The Beatles

I started writing this article on Saturday night and what with D.S.T. I got too tired and couldn’t finish.

Yes Mars went Retrograde March 1st on a New moon in Libra and Saturn went Retrograde in Scorpio on March 2 but I won’t talk about Saturn right now.

Mars retrograde takes all the spunk out of all men and sucks up all forward moving  energy, much like a Black Hole was supposed to do.

Mars = Sex and Retrograde it’s not happening. So enjoy the break. Being celibate is a necessary spiritual training. ALL RETROGRADES ARE GOOD necessary healthy Rx. Medicines. 

No PORN for  11.5 weeks. Do it as a sacrifice and see what happens in your life.

Retrograde planet periods are TRICKSTER energy. You can learn a lot by NOT DOING what you usually do or take for granted.

Mars has pulled the plug. I felt and saw it right away. It was rather scary. DID YOU FEEL IT TOO?

It’s S L O W culture time. Especially with Saturn Retrograde and Pluto joins in awhile.

SLOW down, its good for you. BABY now you’re moving way too fast.

SLOW DOWN by The Beatles written by Larry Williams 1964

It affects all LIBRA’s most directly, but also all ARIES and SCORPIO peeps as MARS is their  planetary ruler.

Wherever you have the sign of LIBRA and everyone does- from 27 degrees Libra- 9 degrees in your Birth chart that’s Mars retrograde territory till May 19.

Mark off the house or houses and all the planets that will get a conjunction, square or opposition by MARS retro. Those planets, angles etc. energy gets affected too.

As Libra is the sign of RELATIONSHIPS expect OLD FLAMES to re-appear.

You are also re-evaluating your relationships.

 MARS in LIBRA Retrograde makes us very very indecisive.

I have Mars in Libra in my Natal chart so I live with this aspect. Should I or  shouldn’t I? Just like a Mercury Retrograde its NOT a great time to INITIATE, Aries middle name – anything new. But a great time to finish things off. 

What the blazes? you may well ask Aries..

ARIES, your ruling planet makes your energy BACKFIRE. Sucks it up leaving you feeling unfamiliarity enervated. Backdraft that’s what it is.

What me tired? You hellfire, endless balls of energy aren’t used to this. Well learn to take it easy for 7 weeks for a change. Recharge. R-E-S-T. RESIST, REflect, renew, reinvent yourself.

OY POOR SCORPIO’s

Mars as your ruler and SATURN in SCORPIO is like DOUBLE TROUBLE DEMENTORS SUCKING OUT your  life force.

All happiness and sexual energy is gone. You feel cold, barren, depressed, unmotivated, dispassionate, blasé, filled with ennui. You know how Scorps obsess and get in those black goth depressions….

Is that all there is?

Tip # 1 TRY A LITTLE TENDERNESS

Not to mention that MARS is a cross dressing transsexual with MARS in VENUS’ S house of LIBRA for 5 3/4 months in 2014.

Rebalancing the inequality between the sexes is very important right now.

Men need to let go of being in power over, aggressive, domineering, unconscious, competitive aggressiveness. Men suffer  from the Patriarchy too. The unfeeling uncaring tough macho model is mainly inhuman. Men have left their own feminine side, theirs souls, anima, alone, alienated. They have left themselves cut off from life, from love, from vulnerability the great strength, unfeeling, cold, calculating, dishonouring the feminine everywhere. Men have an unfathomable deep wound from bashing the Great Mother and they know that somewhere. 

Men chose death over life, hatred over respect and fear over Love 5,000 years ago and made it an institution. Time for a change. That is what these CARDINAL GRAND CROSSES ARE ALL ABOUT.

This PLANETARY alignment is a DIVINELY orchestrated opportunity

for males to reclaim their own feeling nature, to cry, to be vulnerable, to commune with other men, their brothers, to support and protect women. To stop seeing them as objects, chattel, things to be used for their own immature, egotistical, sexual satisfaction alone. To stop fearing homosexuals, transgender and effeminate men, to open themselves up to experience more of their own nature, which always has a masculine and feminine part. It allows creativity to flow.

Jared Leto Astrology Tara Greene

Jared Leto /Rayon  from Dallas Buyers Club

Masculine and Feminine sides of men 

Like Jered Leto winning the Academy Award for playing Rayon in Dallas Buyers Club. The talented, beautiful Capricorn rock star, , is into Astrology and I am sure he did his transits in advance knowing that the stars were aligning exactly now to help him. As above so below. I’ll check into the fascinating Mr. Leto’s chart soon.

Try a little cross-dressing, explore your feminine side guys. It’s ok. Women need to also see men in a new way. They are hooked on the old macho hero. The modern hero is chivalrous, expresses his feelings, shares household chores, cooking, nurturing the children and respects feminine strength and her need to do her own thing.

This vacuuming up of all the testosterone on the planet makes macho posturing guys furious little boys throwing angry temper tantrums. Mr. Putin anyone?

MARS RETROGRADE in LIBRA is about letting yourself be less than NICE.

You know those perfectionist seeking Socialites Librans? Mars Retrograding allows you to cross over and  allows your shadow side to come out. The work of Debbie Ford in THE DARK SIDE OF THE LIGHT CHASERS was very important in owning your own shadow, your shame, faults, what you worst fear would be, the worst anyone could say or do to you in public. Use this time to feel it. What would be so terrible? 

REhearse it, feel it, allow it, let it go. =FREEDOM.
