Sun Goddess of Mental Illness was original Santa Claus

Santa Claus or Father Christmas” is a patriarchal version of what was originally an ancient Reindeer Goddess who was the original Santa Claus.  Long before Santa flew his reindeer across the sky on Christmas Eve, an ancient female reindeer drew the sleigh of the Sun Goddess at the Winter Solstice. The Sun’s return was the Gift. The white-bearded North Polar man who brings gifts at Christmas is a stolen identity. 

Nordic Sami Naero Runic Shamanic Drum

From the British Isles, Scandinavia, Russia, Siberia, and across the land bridge of the Bering Strait, she was a revered spiritual figure associated with fertility, motherhood, regeneration and the rebirth of the sun -the theme of Winter Solstice.

She is known as Beaivi to the Sammi people of the North. She travels with her daughter Beaivi-nieda through the sky in a vehicle covered in reindeer bones. The Goddesses bringing green plants back in winter for the reindeer to eat.

GODDESS of DEPRESSION and MENTAL ILLNESS 

Beivve the Sun Goddess was prayed to for people who were mentally ill or depressed. The Sami knew correctly that depression and even more serious mental illnesses originated from the lack of sunshine and light during the long dark of the winter.  Beivve restores mental health to those who were going insane because of the continual darkness of the 6-month winter.

We should workship Beivve the Sun Goddess now to help prevent suicide and the familiar depression that occurs during the winter solstice when people get what we call in modern terms SAD seasonally affected disorder. This time of year in the NORTHERN  Hemisphere is depressing and critical, there is much stress at Christmas.

If you are in crisis, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255) or contact the Crisis Text Line by texting TALK to 741741

At Winter solstice butter was also smeared on doorposts as a sacrifice to Beivve, to help her gain strength as she was coming back to grow higher in the sky. 

As a Feminist and pagan I would replace Santa Claus with this original Goddess mythology to restore balance an honor to the earth which so needs it right now.

Happy SOLSTICE YULE CHRISTMAS

Jupiter Direct Astrology,Thor and his sexy hammer, Are you ready to rock on?

FAST RELIEF is 5 days away. Your best laid intentions gone nowhere? Your sex life bombed? Didn’t get the raise?

Been having a harder time sticking with your diet?  Conquering an addiction or life just feels like  my 14-year-old daughter says.

” IT SUCKS TO BE YOU.”

seem’s like you’re an upended turtle that  nada is moving forward?

BLAME IT ON JUPITER’s RETROGRADE motion since Oct 5, 2012 that’s why.  Just like Mercury Retrograde,  Jupiter does that nasty too.

It’s hard to get ahead when Jupiter/ THOR  is Retrograde.

Thor/Zeus/Jupiter astrology

THOR in Viking mythology is a personification of Jupiter, aka Zeus, throwing lightning bolts to the Greeks. 

THOR, the BIG  hammer guy, is popping up as a cultural hero again. SUPER HERO for our age

Jupiter is MR. BIG, ruler of sign Sagittarius and Pisces traditionally. Jupiter rules OPTIMISM. Good humour, luck, abundance,honesty 

Ask yourself 

Have things been more serious while Jupiter is Retro in your life?  Has your sex life bombed? 

What do Retro Gods do? Hang out in God caves, lounge with their sport buddies, tell big jokes and smoke big cigars, bowl,carouse,

RETROGRADE JUPITER holds back all the actions Jupiter rules- such as

Jupiter rules the LIVER, the largest organ in the body,  therefore de-toxing,

arteries, pelvis, thighs, a euphemism for sex,cholesterol, gout, weight problems,cataracts, intoxication. sports, publishing, higher law, education, philosophy, travel, adventure, generosity,  fertility, animals,  gotta have it all, spirituality, religion, compassion, bliss,creativity, the arts.

Lawyers are Jupiter ruled, they are supposed to be honest; athletes, philanthropists, Santa Claus is a Jupiter type figure. 

Didn’t get that expected raise lately?

Did you have a lean Xmas?

All you hard to hold down Sagittarius and floaty Pisceans  are frothing at  the bit for THOR to get Thundering again.

Check out where the damage has been in your natal chart- where  are Sagittarius and  PISCES  in your natal chart. Houses? aspects?

 You can go to ASTRODIENST – http://www.astrodienst.com a very reliable free  European site.

Jupiter in Gemini is weak as he is in the opposite sign of the one he ruled. THOR WEAK? 

Jupiter turns DIRECT Jan 30 @ 3:37 am PST/ 6:37 am EST at 6 degrees 19 minutes of the TWINS

If you are  SAGITTARIAN, a PISCES  or a GEMINI you should feel THOR’s hammer start to rock with Thunder

and sparks of lightning beginning to fly!

It will take until April 25 for Jupiter to pass 16 degrees 25 minutes of Gemini where it left off last Oct.

So use the forward Jupiter action to work in the shadow period with full plans to BIRTH your new projects on that date and after in April.

Writers, artists, collective spiritual work, imagers, photographers, publishers,teachers the  re-writing of laws are all in the agenda NOW.

Your usually optimistic bouncing ball, buoyant humored self  will be back soon…

JUPITER WILL BE SWIMMING IN YOUR POOL SOON CANCER’s 

CANCER peeps it will be your BEST YEAR in 12, when Jupiter enters the MOST FEMININE motherly nurturing sign on JUNE 26.

I am a Sagittarius + Moon + Mercury there at the Galactic Center. My North Node is in Pisces so Jupiter rules a lot of my stuff.

Happy Holidays! Blessed Trine Smokin’ Christmas Astrology byTara Greene

Well it’s here already! The astrology outlook for Christmas Eve 2012 and for Old St. Nick looks smokin’

Christmas Santa

 

IT’s a quiet Christams Eve- Very earthy and Sensual with a Taurus Moon

You will surely be stuffed, although I am also aware of the poor who don’t have very much to share,

the essence of the oft told  A Christmas Carol  by Charles Dickens

Christmas is an ancient pagan ritual. ALso part of the Saturnalia that the Greeks and Romans celebrated over 2,000 years ago,

The Moon is Trine Mars at the critical degree 29 of Capricorn @ 9:59 pm PST/ 12:58 am Dec 25 EST

Capricorn is ruled by SATURN, hence the Saturnaliaconnection of Ancient and new.

This aspect is action, hot, passion and the last degree of  the last earth sign Capricorn is all about earthing, building, structuring,finalizing, completing in the 3 D realm. Act on building your dream, your highest honored standing in the world.

My sense of it since the Dec 21 Solstice is all your very deepest intentions will manifest instantly,

so be very very aware of what you want to build, what you wish for.

The goddess is alive and Magic is Afoot. 

Capricorn hoof shoes

Capricorn hoof shoes

NOt a lucky rabbit’s foot, but Capricorn hoof feet 

Yes they also have gun power,and in the light of the recent Gun control laws, I’d say guns will be underfoot.

There are two sides to that story, won’t go into that now

MOON saunters into GEMINI 11:13 pm PST

Xmas DAY DEC 25 

Moon enters GEMINI Dec 25 @ 2:13 am EST

Moon conjuncts Jupiter @ 4:18 pm PSt/7:18 pm EST

so a very Jolly Xmas as Jupiter is like Santa Claus, bountiful, optimistic. JUPITER/MOON in GEMINI is very high spirits, lots of light chat and fun giddy god humoured times, but Jupiter overdoes things, so be careful about drinking and driving!

MARS enters Aquarius @4:49 pm PST/7:49 pm EST

Should be a hi tech christmas eve lots of ipods, computers, new inventions spawned this Christmas eve, 

think outta the box, include everyone 

THis is a very good omen- Everyone should be celebrating what they are grateful for

Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhists, Atheists

Blessings to you

President Obama hugged me,sweet dream Astrology,planet presque vu by Tara Greene

Monday Night May 7, 2012

The Moon is in Sagittarius

This is my Astrology sign, so when the Moon is in one’s own Sun sign, it functions as a personal New Moon cycle every month and doubly so  for me as I was born with the Moon in Sagittarius as well and I have Mercury in Sagittarius at 27 degrees of Sag. smack dab on the Galactic Center.

 The moon watches over us as we sleep, so knowing the lunar aspects may indicate what types of dreams one would have:

 so it was a quite aspect lively night. some lunar squares to NEPTUNE in Pisces – which  would mean heightened LUCID dreams, of a spiritual, transpersonal, creative, karmic nature.

Moon was also square to Mars in Virgo,indicating that the dreams may be Body mapping dreams. That is dreams related to the health of one’s own physical self, a physiological feedback dream. Or a dream related to Virgo influenced things, service, work, self-criticism, pets, discipline,analysis, perfectionism, budgets, the upper intestine, digestion.

Astro- dreaming TM Tara Greene copyright

So I was at a community type of center. There were a lot of people there, I don’t remember who they were. The President of the United States Barak Obama and Michelle Obama were there, standing close to each other, waving smiling. They entered the building, I was with a smaller group of people showing him around the complex. The building was modern, with ramps. We walked and talked as a group for quite some time.

I remember feeling very physically his aura, his personal power. I was very impressed with him. Not just that Mr. Obama has the power and charisma of being the President of the United States  the authority to command. It was something that felt very real, very palpable in the dream.

He had this warmth, intelligence, there was something genuine there. He was incredibly charming, and simply radiated immense energy.

Then President Obama came around and personally thanked each person. He shook hands with all the men.

He came over to me and he hugged me very warmly. I was surprised, I did not expect so close an encounter, to feel his body warmth, I could smell him in the dream. He smelled quite natural. I said thank you for hugging ME to him. I was smiling. The Obama hug made me very happy.

I awoke happy and feeling elated.

I was surprised that I had received a hug from the President. I remember how real and LUCID the dream felt. I was told by one of my teachers that to remember scents in a dream is rare and very profound powerful experience to have.  The sense of smell is of the old brain, the animal brain and to cross the sense barriers and to have the dream enhanced with a remembered scent is supposed to be very rare and marks a dream as Lucid and hyper real. The sense of smell, is also karmic, it is directly tied to our memories and directly relates to feelings. 

I thought hey now that dream is the perfect,  perfect metaphor and presque vu dream { the opposite of deja vu} for the upcoming Astrology aspects,which will also be one of the best days of the entire year occurring on MOTHER’S DAY! Sunday May 13.

The Sun conjuncts JUPITER in Taurus at 23 degrees+

It means  Optimistic, positive, charismatic, the Sun is the Source, the leader, the Sun King.

 Jupiter is Mr. Big, Expansion, feel good, Jupiter is also the King, generous, like Santa Claus.

and of course the conjunction is happening in TAURUS the most sensuous, body conscious sign. All things Taurus symbolize a heightened five senses. My dream fits the astrology symbolism to a T- it’s  perfect. LOL.

You get it. Now How do your dreams relate to the planets Moon and stars for you?

It’s very facinating  to track your dreams, It is one of the most ancient healing modalities. Dreams were interpreted in the Bible. Jacob wrestling the angel.  The foundation of Freudian psychology. Jungian psychology as well. I have dream journals going back 35 years. You can also check into where the moon is to get further reflection on how the moon would be stimulating and affeting your dreams on as specific night. It always astounds me to do this checking is hindsight as it will amaze you. 

THANK YOU MR. PRESIDENT

Of course I consider that dream hug to be real and lucid. So thank you Mr. President.

Of course Obaama’s book was called Dreams of My Father

The dream reminds me now that I also received a special hug last summer from  AMMA, an amazing Indian spiritual guru, considered to be the embodyment of the Goddess, known as the hugging saint. Ammahe is a most revered woman who has hugged millions of people as a way of initating them. Of course his book was called Dreams of  My Father

So watch your dreams, check where the moon was and what the planetary interactions were, aspects etc. in general and to your own natal chart.

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.
