Heavy weight loss as Saturn turns Retrograde

April 28 Saturn turns Retrograde until September 18.

Saturn is the Heavy weight planet. As Father Time turns backwards we will  be in weight loss mode. This can run the gamut from literally losing weight to weight loss in your career,  family ties, in reviewing the steps, structures, hard knocks, limitations, depressions, karmic patterns of  father and authority issues we’ve dealt with up until now.

Saturn is the Devil #15 in the Tarot.

If you are 29 years old your Saturn return will cause you to looks back and go deeper into what is blocking you unconsciously with daddy issues. You must look into those old karmic issues before you can fully mature.

Look at which house or houses Saturn makes as it Retrogrades from 20+ degrees  31 minutes back to 13 degrees 55 minutes of Capricorn on September 18.

and the aspects saturn will make to any planets angles, nodes asteroids etc. 

I’ll write more soon for each sign.

Reality Recheck Saturn Retrograde

Saturn Retrograde, backing down on his own turf- the corporate mountain of worldly success.

saturn astrology Tara Greene

Saturn’s Atmospheric Changes

Yes the planet of Karma, Time Taxes, death, old age, pensions, senators, plumbers, seniors, heavy laborers, architects, leaders, chiropractor’s, who was known as The DEVIL,in the Tarot #15  turns Retrograde we all have to do the hard work of getting down to business. It is most truly a Reality recheck.

 

Saturn is the Old Master the great tester, the obstacle maker, the one who piles the traps, trials, and tribulations higher. Saturn is like lead, he is never lightweight. He teaches us to work hard and to have patience and persistence and never lose sight of our lofts goals the top of the mountain of success.

Saturn rules Reality per se. Anything that takes physical third-dimensional form is governed by Saturn. Saturn is the bones, the skeleton, he is the patriarchy, the father, the old boys club. Saturn is the rules and the how things work. Saturn is the builder the architect. We all have to pay homage to Saturn as he rules time aging and death.  

This indicates Senators senior CEO’s and those who hold places of high success in the world may be falling from their perches. The jury is not out yet on Zuckerberg and Facebook  Starbooks is recently in Trouble and of course, this indicates Trump and any other world leaders about to fall from their perches. 

This can also indicate the Queen being voted out of leading the Commonwealth. Queen Elizabeth is the longest-lived reigning royal. She has been Queen since June 2,1953, 64 years. On May 16 week leaders meet to vote Prince Charles in. The Queen is turning 92 years old on April 21st. I’ll write more about this soon. 

As Saturn moves backward through his own home turf he is in a better place and he wants to put business in order.

But uh uh uh. NOT SO FAST. ANY and ALL unfinished business father issues psychological and karmic authority issues, shadows tests and obstacles that you haven’t dealt with- GUESS WHAT? Saturn will delight in roasting you over the coals to get you to deal with them now. And I would advise you to face that scary scary place now because it will take another 29 years till you get another opportunity.  And see it as an opportunity please. 

Everyone born between March-May 1988 and December 1988 until February 1989 have Saturn from 2-9 degrees CAPRICORN which is the exact degrees Saturn is Retrograding through.  From the soul’s perspective, you have to get down and get dirty in the mud of your own filth. Not to wallow in it or throw it at anyone else in blame, but to own it as your own. MY SHIT!

 

All countries with these degrees prominent will get their proverbial coals raked over.

this includes  Libya – December 24, 1951, January 1, 1993 – the Czech Republic January 1, 1993 – Slovakia January 1, 1984 – Brunei January 1, 1956 – Sudan January 1, 1901 – Australia  January 1, 1960 – Cameroon

People you may have thought you broke up with could come back into your life. Saturn does symbolize people and karmic relationships and events. You may have to fix something again. Issues around parenting, your children, parents, especially your father, and taking responsibility for stuff is important.  

Use these intense five months to really do your deep inner work Saturn is known as the Devil. Face your demons and shadows and come out stronger.

If Saturn transits an angle in your chart the 1st, 4th, 7th or 10th house cusps. The effects will be more pronounced as that angle governs the development of the 3 houses in that quadrant

I am available to help you deal with and navigate through Saturn’s school of HARD KNOCKS.

Seeing red, Retrograde alerts!

The Aries New Moon energy lasts 3 days Match 27-28 or before you see the first sliver of a waxing Crescent Moon. Stay in that still dark Void space over the next 3 days to gain wisdom and direction. It is a RED TENT time for the world.

Red Tent New Moon astrology Tara Greene

RED TENT by JULIE HEFFERMAN

March 28 Speaking of RED, Tuesday is MARS Day, the RED planet.

The Aries Moon, ruled by Mars, is forming those CARDINAL crosses to Pluto, opposing Jupiter in LIBRA and conjunction Uranus. These produce tensions as we all know. Especially for those who have planets Angles at 13-28 degrees Cardinal signs.

The tension is building up to March 30th Jupiter-PLUTO square.

Should I stay or should I go? Is what leaped into my mind.  More on that later. This is another part of the long-term breakdown of communications, honesty, secrets and, power and control in Governments, about radiation, poisons, toxic garbage, and that which has outworn its use. 

RETROGRADE HEADS UP!Retrograde red alert astrology Tara Greene

Three planets turn RETROGRADE in APRIL

SATURN turns RETROGRADE APRIL 5 @ 27+ degrees SAGITTARIUS until August 25th

Red alert Georgia O'Keefe artist Tara Greene

Saturn spends about 5 months retrograde every year.  Moving back from his conjunction to the GALACTIC CENTER, the source of the mother’s milk, the milk which spurted from the greek Goddess Hera’s breasts which flew across the skies. While Saturn is Retrograde in SAGITTARIUS we will see the issues affected by Saturn in Sag. get reviewed.

On a personal level you can go back and finish any task which takes patience, persistence, determination, hard-work and which has long-lasting effects on career, education, traveling, publishing, teaching, religion, seniors rights or testifying.

PLUTO TURNS Retrograde April 20 -SEPTEMBER 28

Pluto goes home to his home in the underworld for 5 months every year.  While Pluto is Retro everything that this planet, which I believe will be renamed as a Planet turns back to re-obsess about, sex, money, power. On the global level issues about big banks and government, nuclear energy, Plutocrats, control, and secrets turns back on itself.  We will be reviewing, reversing, reimplementingand renewing our personal soul searching power points, and redressing issues around the misuse of power in the outside world.

How to use Jupiter Retrograde to Rejuvenate your life

Jupiter will turn his big back on us as he turns RETROGRADE, as he does every year, on Feb 5th/6th @ 23+ degrees LIBRA and the BIG PLANET will Retrograde back to 13 degrees 13 minutes until June 8/9th. RETROGRADE planetary times get a bad rap but they are very important and ought to be used very positively.

This means its REJUVENATION time!

As Jupiter is the planet of optimism, faith, trust, foreigners, freedom, risk taking, gambling, religion, truth, higher education, honesty, justice, politics, the military and travel as ruler of SAGITTARIUS and PISCES all of these things will now go SOUTH. Restrictions on these things is already being set up and will be reviewed. This is not a time to move forwards. Do not gamble. 

 Over the next four months things contract. All of the forward progress made will be poured over, investigated, re-examined, sent back to the courts, as many laws will be repealed maybe over and over again. Back to the drawing boards to overhaul, pick apart and rebalance in all phases of your life. RE-examine your goals, education plans, business expansion, health, investments and your spiritual path. 

DO NOT PASS GO while JUPITER is RETROGRADE.

JUPITER is the WHEEL OF FORTUNE in the TAROT #10 which is also #1

Jupiter has already been in its own shadow phase since Jan 22 just after Trump’s inauguration. The upcoming eclipses on Feb 10/11 and Feb 26 are also Retrograde affected. 

All leaders, which JUPITER symbolizes will get grilled over the coals, especially Donald Trump and all of his appointees. Expect non-stop protests, court battles, back and forth, tit for tat. It’ll be like watching some grand tennis match. Be careful of whiplash. 

This is a good time to do all the RE- things. Review and renew your faith or become cynical and atheistic. It’s a good time to reflect, reject, relax, renew, review and rest.

ALL Relationships will go through serious examination as Jupiter in LIBRA now.

VENUS also turns RETROGRADE MARCH 4

just before MArch 8 which is INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY

VENUS does her once every year and a bit RETROGRADE turn @ 13+ ARIES until April 15/15 @ 26+ degrees PISCES.

Because Trump and his cronies are so anti-women, misogynist, bible thumpers and back in some crazed dark ages. The women’s march that we saw in Washington the biggest one-day event of its kind will see another one then and world-wide. Putin has just made it legal for Russian men to beat their wives again. Do you remember PUSSY RIOT? They were on trial, jailed, whipped by police in public and incarcerated for a long time for daring to stand up to the old Russian Orthodox religion. They did an art performance in a church that was what they did wrong. The Republicans are trying to make it illegal for protesters to protest. This is Fascism in the making. WOMEN must lead the fight or loose their rights.

Venus will move into her next phase where she will become the MORNING STAR during this phase. Venus is the ancient myth of INANNA who goes through a shamanic death and rebirth initiation into the underworld. She leaves her consort Dumuzi on her throne. She is instructed to take off every vestige of her royal accouterments until she is reduced to being a rotting piece of meat on a hook. Her sister Ereshkigal is like Persephone, Inanna’s opposite, the QUEEN of the UNDERWORLD. Inanna has helpers who come and rescue her, she eventually recovers her life, her flesh and restores herself and returns to the Upperworld to find Dumuzi partying and forgotten about Inanna and drunk with his own power. Inanna has him dispatched and sent away. She regains her throne sets her Queendom straight and engages in this endless cycle of rebirth as a Virgin Queen whole and complete unto herself over and over again since time out of mind. 

We need to integrate INANNA’s archetypal story into our own lives. What outward symbols of power and ego needs do we need to give up?  Who are we when we are reduced to our essence? This is a dark night of the soul aspect. Jupiter represents hope and when Inanna is all alone and barely conscious, that is what this symbolizes. The Dark Night of the SOUL is what the world is encountering as Jupiter and Venus both retrograde.

If people don’t get off their asses now and fight, fight, fight, for their democratic rights every day, while the planets are retrograde and major changes can be redressed removed, rescinded, etc. then they are doomed. Please get off your couches and act.  If people got as enthralled with their freedom and rights as they do about the Super Bowl or Beyonce’s pregnancy or The Bachelor the world would be very different and much better. 

SATURN TURNS RETROGRADE on April 5/6 until AUGUST 25 

SATURN, LORD of reality, seniority, seniors, the Lord of Death, SATAN, turns RETROGRADE @ 27degrees 38 minutes of SAGITTARIUS exactly on the GALACTIC CENTER.  

That is a very profound symbol. Reviewing the law, who is in charge, corporate structure. Saturn turns DIRECT @ 21 degrees SAGITTARIUS on AUGUST 25th.It will take until NOVEMBER 29/30 until Saturn actually moves forwards.

SATURN RETROGRADE is restructuring, reordering, and resetting your reality.

The most important word to remember in a JUPITER Retrograde is REJUVENATE.  One of JUPITER’s other names is Jove, which is the same as Jehovah or God. To rejuvenate literally means to return to God, or the God force within. Spend a lot of time meditating, searching and asking for the answers within. The only authority to listen to is your own higher self or guardian angel. There is no outside authority that has the power to make you do anything against your will or unconscious agreement. 

In dissecting any astrology chart Retrograde planets represent karma. 

Do use these next few months to examine deeply your own unconscious beliefs and shadows. Jupiter symbolizes trust, Venus is LOVE, Saturn is the Mother, the earth and structure. It would be a good time to do past life regression, dream recall, and recapitulation.

Check out where in your own natal chart JUPITER VENUS And SATURN Will be retrograding to see where you need to reset all of the aspects in your life.

Seven to do’s because it’s Saturn Retrograde

It may take a while till we feel the effects of the Lunar eclipse. But there is a lot still happening.

The SUN conjoined MERCURY March 23 after the eclipse.

This sparks  new energy and new ideas. The eclipse was very close to the Zero degree ARIES world point. This is a true turning point. Ultimately new thinking caps and new bright ideas will emerge.

March 24  Mercury @ 5+ DEGREES ARIES trines Mars in Sagittarius @ 3:45 pm PDT/ 6:45 pm EDT

Under a void-of- course Moon. This is an upbeat pursuit of truth, adventure, travelling, optimism and justice. Be daring, be bold, be passionate. 

It’s GOOD FRIDAY March 25

The archetypal story of an anointed Higher consciousness being, called Yeshua or Jesus, knows he must die and sacrifice himself for a Higher Purpose, traditionally to the Great Mother, as a martyr to bring higher consciousness to the world. The story of death and rebirth is a terribly ancient one, since humans first became conscious. All life is a continuous unending cycle of birth death and transformation.  That is under Saturn’s realm.  Easter in the Bible was tied into the Jewish Festival of Passover which is based on a lunar calendar. Usually the two coincide but this year Passover is very late and begins April 22 on a Full Moon. 

The real meaning of EASTER or OESTRE is an ancient pagan fertility festival tied to Spring. 

rabbits, easter, hare, Goddess, tara Greene

Kelly Louise Judd image

ISHTAR, ASTARTE , TARA, OESTRE ancient Goddesses of fertility were honored with symbols of hares, sacred to the Moon, the lunar monthly fertility counter, and rabbits which are very fertile. The symbols of eggs and rabbits were taken on as an overlay on ancient festivals by the Christians. Anyone who studied pagan symbolism can easily see this. 

SATURN TURNS RETROGRADE  March 25 @ 16+ SAGITTARIUS, 3:00 am PDT/ 6:00 am EDT/ 10:00 a.m. UT

LORD OF TIME STANDSTILL and begins to slowly turn the Karmic  wheel backwards. 

wheel of Time, Tara Greene Buddhist

The GREAT WHEEL OF TIME BUDDHIST interpretation

WHAT’s IT ALL ABOUT?

We are going into DEJA VU time, as the Great wheel of time slows and appears to revolve backwards until August 14th where Saturn will be at 9 degrees 47 minutes of Sagittarius. Lets think back as to where we are headed in that future and where we were. Saturn was last at 9 degrees 47 minutes of Sagittarius on December 20, 2015, think back what you were doing and what you were planning for 2016.

SATURN in SAGITTARIUS is very optimistic, altruistic, honest to a fault, pursues justice, higher  philosophical perspectives, education and relating to exotic and foreign things, persons and travel. Saturn rules the Patriarchy, authority, the old boys network, history. In Sagittarius this is politics.  Expect a total change in the political run for president now over the next few months. Sagittarius reveals the truth. 

JUPITER’s square to  SATURN right now amplifies the more optimistic side and expands Saturn’s usually cynical bitter restricting influence on any sign. This  is positive and pressuring. As Saturn moves slowly backwards it is like going through a wormhole or time tunnel, we get to go back to the past to change the future. 

Saturn Retrograde gives us tine to mature,to work on things. It’s like the necessary time spent to let the dough rise, or setting a bottle of wine away. You cannot rush when something is ready. Use this time wisely to carefully craft your master plan, because all of Saturn’s energy has to do with long term goals, career, commitments, maturity and plans. 

Some commitments may break up now or at least must be reexamined. Honesty is truly the best currency now. 

We will have to go back to the drawing board where all ideas are conceived and nurture tweak and reset them in stone before they can really begin to be birthed next August. 

Saturn in the TAROT is THE DEVIL #15. Ultimately the DEVIL is the material plane. Temptation. EGO. It is ultimately not real. This can be a good time to revisit what your fears are. Are you being governed by your ego? What devils do you project onto others? This is a pretty hot topic now. 

SEVEN TO DO’s while SATURN IS RETROGRADE

1. Revisit all your goals for 2016.

This is important to do now as there are energy shifts coming in the fall. It’s OK to change your plans.

2. Scrap what you are not fully committed to

Only put your energy into long-term goals that you are really into for the long run. Its better to focus on one higher goal.Draw out what your peak looks like, why you want it and what you expect from it.

3. Re-commit your vows, in a relationship or in your career .

This is a good time to remake vows, personal and relationship. Second that emotion. Saturn rules career, redraw a career mandala or where you see yourself in 7, 14 years. 

4. Ask the advise of a mentor or more mature person’s experience. 

This is good to do now. You will be more open to hearing their advice. Also think about your retirement or any long-term distant goals and how to plan for it.

5. Finish up old legal, tax or educational courses. 

Saturn is the tax man, get any old unfinished business done. Immigration, wills or other legal matters of this sort should be finished over the next few months. Finish up the courses already.

6. Honor your father and any male person who helped you

Visit your dad, and honor him whether alive or dead for the karmic lessons he gave you. For some this may be good and for others painful. If there are old childhood wounds this is a good time to let that pain out. Inner child work is very important.  

Tell someone you respect a male teacher, how they helped impact your life It’s important to tell that person how he helped make a difference in your life. Call him, email or meet in person, or send an old-fashioned letter by mail. 

7. Learn to use your time more wisely.

Time is a very precious commodity and it goes faster these days. Manage it wisely.

Karmic Justice, Libra Lunar Eclipse March 23

KARMIC JUSTICE LIBRA LUNAR ECLIPSE March 23, 2016 MEDITATION

By AGENT 129 TARA GREENE

– a variation of this article is published at Cosmic Intelligence Agency

The second eclipse of the year is a North Nodal penumbral Lunar Eclipse @ 3+ degrees LIBRA, the sign of Justice, karma and balance. We certainly need this to bring balance into our own lives, relationships and to karmically adjust the crazy shenanigans happening everywhere in the world. We need to find the balance between the opposites.

This is a FULL MOON in LIBRA invoking the ARIES/LIBRA, “I” Thou , relationship axis, of self and other. Lunar eclipses brings us new emotional cycles and insightful, intuitive and often psychic revelations in relationships, communications, creativity and values. 

This eclipse helps us to see just how out of balance we are and how important karmic choices must be made now. We have to create a  balance of masculine and feminine energies, a SACRED ALCHEMY, the sacred MARRIAGE, within ourselves and in the world. Recently elected Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau appointed the first equal male and female cabinet ministers in the world. When asked why, he simple answered “Because it’s 2015.”  Enough said.

This eclipse will reactive last years’ September 27 total lunar eclipse at 4+ degrees ARIES. Think back on what has transpired in your life over these last six months.  

Visibility Lunar Eclipse Tara Greene

Visibility map of Lunar eclipse. effects are most portent in the total visible range

LIBRA is ruled by VENUS and she is now in Pisces where she is exalted. Venus is especially powerful as she is conjunct to NEPTUNE her “higher octave.” They are blessings us with spiritual, dreamy, out of this world cosmic Bliss. Tantric sexuality, knowing the Beloved, cosmic orgasms and uniting with soul mates is the hallmark for Lovers under this eclipse energy. You can also experience this if you are solo simply through breathing and meditations.

Lunar eclipses stir up the electro-magnetic fields, unconscious feelings and emotions. It also amplifies our dreams, so do pay attention to your dreams. This eclipse also increases fertility aspects. If you are trying to conceive a baby or a creative project, use this energy to help you. Check out where 3 degrees Libra falls in your natal chart.

The Sun is conjunct Mercury eight hours after the eclipse. A clear sign of the need to communicate in new {Aries} ways. This bodes well for new relationships or agreements created around this time.

LIBRA is ruled by VENUS and she is still very tightly connected to her Higher Mate Neptune in PISCES. We are under this benevolent, romantic, creative very spiritual, uplifting, compassionate aspect since Equinox 3 days earlier. 

Mars, where the action always is, sextiles the Moon and EROS, at 3 degrees AQUARIUS,indicating some hot dates. Mars also Trines the Sun from fiery Sagittarius. Mars in Sagittarius is a Truth warrior, a philosopher and fighter for justice. This is all good stuff.

JUPITER is conjunct the NORTH NODE and leading us onwards to expansion, faith, optimism, humility, hard work, learning about the environment, our health and work needs. Jupiter is in a TIGHT square {90 degrees} to Saturn about to turn RETROGRADE {16 degrees Sagittarius}  on the 25th on Good FRIDAY, and digging his heals in the tightest as the planet is barely moving. 

JUPITER and SATURN are in a wide opposition and square to NEPTUNE and VENUS. Your love will be tested in the most practical of everyday detailed way. Money issues may be the make it or break it area, or spiritual beliefs or some hidden or not so hidden enemies, like in-laws.  The reality of what IS, very hard and cold is being revealed versus the big dream, illusion, projection of how perfect they are.

CHIRON the wounded healer and the SOUTH NODE of the MOON and GREAT MOTHER CERES are conjunct indicating a karmic releasing of old, very old, karmic issues which we know are haunting us deep down in our souls and where we are the most afraid to go because that is where we are the most vulnerable and also the most healing of places.

These are ancient wounds around the Great Mother,  in all her glorious aspects who has been denied, suppressed, raped, tortured and ignored for thousands of years. This is a deep wound and every woman carries this as well as every man to. The soul is called the anima and is always considered feminine.  A man feels his mothers emotions in utero, so he knows deep down what the feminine feels. A man’s misogyny may stem from his own guilt and denying his own part in usurping the power of the Feminine. It is a huge defense. 

URANUS and PLUTO still in Cardinal crosses. 

LIBRA’s symbol is the ancient Egyptian Goddess MAAT’s golden scales of karmic justice. The Egyptian’s believed that after death, the human heart is weighed on the scales against Maat’s ostrich feather. If the heart is heavier than the feather, then the soul must return to earth to continue working on its’ emotional issues until cleared. Only when the heart is show to be as light as Maat’s feather and the scales are perfectly balanced, then the soul is considered freed of all karmic lessons.  This is the key symbol and one which we can always ask ourselves, How light is my heart in regards to this?

Lunar eclipses, like solar ones occur at similar degrees every 18+ years in what are called Saros cycles.  This is the 18th lunar eclipse in Saros cycle 142 which began on September 19, 1709 and which will end on November 17, 3007. 

The number 18 seems very powerful to me as a Tarot Astrology and Numerology symbol.

The #18 Arcana {Trump} in the Tarot is the symbol of The MOON. It is associated with Pisces and is the dark side of the moon, symbolizing our unconscious, our deepest darkest fears and karma. 

The number 18 in Hebrew, CHAI, means Life.  We can breathe, LIBRA, an AIR sign; new life into our relationships and into our understanding of our hopes and fears to bring more balance.

The Moon at 3 degrees LIBRA is conjunct to one of the most massive Black holes there is, in GALAXY-87 called ADONIS by astrologer Alex Miller-Mignone. This super sucker of all light and matter’s event horizon is 326 LIGHT YEARS across. That is staggering.  The short story of ADONIS the handsome youth who was born because of a magic spell from jealous Aphrodite/Venus and was eventually forced to split himself into being Persephone’s lover in Hades for part of the year and to spend part of his year with Venus on Mt. Olympus as her lover and part of his time alone.  

I find it fascinating that this Black Hole degree perfectly symbolizes where we are out of balance in our precious time for relationships and where it all gets sucked into these days.

Libra is an Air sign, the mind, it’s about communications after all. The net, our cell phones, sucks us into a Black Hole. They are useful tools but also keep us overextended like Adonis, running from one thing to the next frantically trying to appease others’ needs, our job, boss, partner, children with our own. We desperately need a middle more balanced way.

LIBRA is symbolized by the TAROT Trump #8 JUSTICE, also #11.

Justice Tarot Trump

Justice’s color is emerald-green, relating it to the heart chakra and Archangel Raphael. Its sound is F#. The symbol means an ox goad. The Hebrew letter is lamed.

MEDITATION and RITUAL

For the ceremony and meditation we want to bring in as many attributes as we can.  Use what you have.

Minerals and Stones associated with Libra

Smoky quartz, rutilated quartz, Herkimer diamonds, Moonstones, emeralds, lapis, kunzite, coral.

Stones for Aries

Red garnets, bloodstones, carnelian, ruby, amber.

I would use watermelon tourmaline as it has both the green tourmaline for Libra and the red for Aries.

Set up an alter or sacred meditation space.

Use lots of smudge and incense for Cardinal AIR.

Coriander, rose, sweetgrass, sandalwood, and vanilla for LIBRA. Put on quiet meditation music. You can prerecord these instructions with pauses to listen to as you do the meditation.

Use white or green for Venus and red candles for Mars/Aries. The MOON’s color is silver. Use silver candle stick holder or put dimes, quarters or silver dollars on the alter and wear silver jewelry.

Libra rules the skin, small of the back and kidneys and adrenals. Cleansing and toning herbs are angelica, thyme, burdock and bearberry.  The Moon rules the breasts, the left eye, the lymph, bodily fluids and saliva, ovaries. If you have any problems with these areas bring them into your meditation, and use Reiki to amplify the healing energy.

Begin by smudging yourself first.  Light your candles.  One for each direction. Always move clockwise whatever tradition you use. I start in the East, other traditions start in the South.

Call in the four elements and the four direction into your sacred circle.

Call in the four Archangels, Michael, Gabriel, Ariel, Raphael in the same order..and yourself as one equal entity, half of the other. Muslims and Jews, Catholics and atheists, men and women, straights and gays.  See the wholeness of self and other as yin and yang, the polarity which is necessary for all of life. Feel the respect and the peace as each discovers how necessary and needed and loved the other is.

HEALING AND CLEANSING MAGIC

With your intentions, use the eclipsed moon’s light to cleanse and purify any residual conscious and unconscious memories, from past, future lives and present life karma which is keeping you from loving yourself completely. Ask to release any blocks and fears of intimacy which keep you from being in a committed relationship.

Take your time. Ask to bring yourself into a place of total harmony, peace and love, firmly rooted in the middle way or pillar of justice.

Sense your heart reborn anew, lighter, clearer in its original purity.

Now visualize your heart weighed against Maat’s ostrich feather and watch until your heart comes into a perfect balance with that white feather on her scales of justice. Stay with this energy.

Be in this as long as you need. Meditate and ask what you need to do now. At the end of your meditation always thank the elements and spirits and close your circle. Write down visions, feelings and questions.

Blessings,   TARA

Friday the 13th be an OPTIMIST PRIME

The MOON is aiming higher in Sagittarius on FRIDAY the 13th,Venus’s day.

The Number 13 is sacred to the Goddess. There are 13 lunar cycles every year which coincide with women’s menstrual cycles. The original magic elixir.

Sagittarius MOON squares CHIRON and the SUN

Pain can be healed with humor and optimism

We are half way to the next NEW MOON. That super powerful TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE MARCH 20 the first day of Spring in the NORTH. Autumn in the Southern Hemisphere.. I’ll write more about it later.

Sagittarius continues to gallop on with those POSITIVE Trines to Venus later in the day.
It’s a day to love those Sagittarius peeps. They have a great sense of humor, are easy-going, teachers, philosophers, lawyers, historians, travellers, gypsies. They love animals, especially horses. They can be procrastinators, judgmental and klutzy.

INSPIRATIONAL CARD OF THE DAY

Legacy of the Divine Tarot Tara greene

9 of coins/pentacles/disks

Legacy of the Divine Tarot

This is a bespoke card promising material riches, wealth, beauty, grace and refinement.

Things matter, stuff, wealth, what it can do for you.

The 9’s are always completions, perfections. The 9’s are also closure.

MEDITATE on material riches and gain.

What physical things, projects, objects, job, wealth, career or health issues do you need to put a cap on?  What do you need to bring to perfection in the physical world?  This could be a baby, a book, a promise, a home, a dream ready to come true.

Use the Sagittarius’s Moon spiritual exuberance and optimism to aim your arrows true.

And Saturn rules the bones. We will put flesh on those bones till next September 17 when Saturn re-enters Sagittarius. With hard work and discipline, focus on those long-term goals and build those dreams util they become real. Fire and earth magic is what brings the immaterial into the material.

But remember not to get too materialistic. Good to remember you are more than the physical world.

My blog keeps doing weird stuff these days. cant seem to put videos on with out screwing up the way my blog looks.

Pumped up kicks, March Astrology preview

Hi I am under the weather and behind in two important writing deadlines. So I tried something new. I shot a spoken word video on my crummy old cell phone. I don’t believe in Brands so Goddess forbid I should ever get an iphone. Anyways after a few tries and in much March winds kinda haste I felt I had to get this out. I will fill in as I can.

The BIGGIES: MARCH comes in like a lion and it’s HUGE in evolutionary intensity

The 7th and last of the URANUS PLUTO exact Squares is on March 16-17 with both planets moving DIRECT which neither have done at the same time since the entire square dance. So its full speed ahead now. The 7th chakra is the thousand petalled lotus. It’s the 7th chakra awakening. A full kundalini global awakening from our sleep as humans without full consciousness. We must be meditating globally on this date and at the exact time. 7:53 p.m. PDT/ 10:53 pm /2:53 a.m. on March 17 GMT.

7th Chakra awakening March 2015, Tara Greene

Enlightenment may be at hand. Before you throw your hat in the air shouting YAY that’s it it’s all over. This is not the end of the big changes but only the beginning. We’ve just had out chakra pipes pumped to be flushed open and ready for action.

PUMPED UP KICKS 

Venus and Mars join the dance kicking everyone to the curb on March 4 and the 11th respectively to bring Women and Men into this revolution. Chaotic, wild, crazy, terrorist attacks, volcanoes  and market crashes very likely especially with VENUS on the 4th. That’s this week.  Ending of lots of relationships in this make it or break it time.

MERCURY enters PISCES on March 12 and enters ARIES March 30/31

VENUS enters TAURUS MARCH 17

Mars enters TAURUS March 31

SATURN RETROGRADE

The Lord of KARMA does an about face on March 14. We are in the tension of the Saturn Neptune approaching square till then. Something always has to hold us up. Well, still more important work to do.

HUGE TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE ON SPRING EQUINOX MARCH 20 @ 2:36 am PDT/ 5:36 a.m. EDT/ 9:36 am GMT.

At the very last degree of the Zodiac 29 degrees 27 minutes of PISCES. This symbolizes a very big END OF THE CYCLE or end of time as we know it.  Will write more about that.

It’s the end of the world as we know it by R.E. M.- some of the lyrics

That’s great, it starts with an earthquake
Birds and snakes, an aeroplane, Lenny Bruce is not afraid
Eye of a hurricane, listen to yourself churn
World serves its own needs, don’t misserve your own needs

Feed it up a knock, speed, grunt, no, strength, no
Ladder, structure clatter with fear of height, down height
Wire in a fire, represent the seven games
In a government for hire and a combat site

Left her, wasn’t coming in a hurry with the furies
Breathing down your neck
Team by team, reporters baffled, trump, tethered crop
Look at that low plane, fine then

Uh oh, overflow, population, common group
But it’ll do, save yourself, serve yourself
World serves its own needs, listen to your heart bleed
Tell me with the rapture and the reverent in the right, right
You vitriolic, patriotic, slam, fight, bright light
Feeling pretty psyched

It’s the end of the world as we know it
It’s the end of the world as we know it
It’s the end of the world as we know it
And I feel fine

Six o’clock, TV hour, don’t get caught in foreign tower
Slash and burn, return, listen to yourself churn
Lock him in uniform and book burning, blood letting
Every motive escalate, automotive incinerate

Light a candle, light a motive, step down, step down
Watch a heel crush, crush, uh oh, this means no fear
Cavalier, renegade and steer clear
A tournament, a tournament, a tournament of lies
Offer me solutions, offer me alternatives and I decline

It’s the end of the world as we know it
It’s the end of the world as we know it
It’s the end of the world as we know it
And I feel fine – Repeat

Full Moon March 5 at mid Virgo is also quincunxy.

Verges on dirty sounding doesn’t it? 

A ladybug has been following me around and has now landed on my computer keyboard. This is a lucky sign. Relax.

Planetary recall, sexual review, March Astrology from Tara Greene

Mercury just went direct Feb 28.  Wasn’t so bad this time. When Mercury is in its own element of Air like it was this time in Aquarius, I find them easier. Do you notice this? 

MARCH STARTS with a PLANETARY RECALL on a NEW MOON in PISCES. BIG BACKLASH.

One step forwards and two steps behind.

Pisces new Moon astrology Tara Greene

MARCH NEW MOON starts out with a Bang of a whimper. TWO PLANETS MOVE RETROGRADE. Mars & SATURN.

Mars rules sex and Saturn is in Mars’ ruled Scorpio now. Saturn rules CAPRICORN. 

The two BAD BOYS of the ZODIAC- get recalled. For one thing your sex life needs to be overhauled and reviewed.  What does this mean?

MARS planet of COHONES, macho, war, energy, passion goes RETROGRADE March 1- MAY 19.

ARIES SCORPIO and CAPRICORNS will feel this pull back the most. 

The ACTION PLANET moveing Retro for the next 11 weeks will slow your impulses, pulses and everything right down.

Mars Saturn retrograde tara Greene

The economy, money, power simmers down. Mars turns Retrograde at 27 degrees + LIBRA. Mars ends his Retro at 9 degrees o1 of LIBRA.  

CHECK THIS area off on your chart to see where and in which house/houses the weakening of the drive affects you at.  It will feel different in the 1st than in the 12th house. MARS is spending 7 months in LIBRA instead of its usual six weeks in a sign this year.

Mars only retrogrades once very 26 months so it is a very KARMIC time. We are needing to REBALANCE MASCULINE ENERGY for men and women.

MEN need to change their macho ways of seeing women. This runs rampant through PATRIARCHAL culture. Women parading naked in Blurred Lines, Miley Cyrus overtly sexual displays, these are all PATRIARCHAL demands of women as objects. Sorry ladies if you think this is women’s liberation and freedom it is not. Women cannot display themselves this way in this culture of masculine domination. Yes they could in an ideally Feminine valued culture. It might look similar but men would honor, cherish, serve and respect women totally for that to happen. Women would have equal rights in every way and more so as bearers of children. They would be exalted, highly valued and never raped. They would hold worldly positions of power and be respected and be as free as men in the world. They would be valued as life givers, bringers of feminine values, fairness, caring, cherishing children and all life on earth as Feminine Goddesses. So that’s what I feel this MArs in LIBRA initiation is all about. This is how relationships were in the Goddess worshipping ages, how people lived in the ancient Crete, in the  Malta, in Aboriginal societies, in ancient Sumeria.

SEX REST and REHAB TIME

First and foremost MARS rules sex. Take a break. It’s an ancient Chinese energy warrior practice to hold back from having orgasms to conserve the precious life energy. Mantak Chia practiced this form of energy meditation for many years. Tantric sexuality uses this practice as well. Ideally it would be time to go cold turkey, I don’t mean having sex with frozen turkeys- to be  celibate and align with this energy. 

It’s a time of rest and renewal. And to REVIEW of all your  RELATIONSHIPS, social scene, arts, luxury, where we spend our energy, what are we truly passionate about. Only if you step back and REflect can you see what the patterns are.

LADIES womb cleansing and sexual virgin renewal time.

EVERY SEXUAL act you have ever had needs to  be recapitulated ladies. I will write about this separately and present a course. This will be by phone and a private FB group and more.

If you have planets birthdays near these dates- JUSTIN BIEBER comes to mind, then watch out for the backslide. backlash. 

MARS rules WAR and in LIBRA it is PEACE NEGOTIATIONS

We will be revisiting old peace talks, hot spots, sexual equality, including gays, transgender etc.  

Yes Mars Retrograde is literally banging your head against the wall.

MARS & SATURN in SCORPIO rules masochism and S & M. So that kind of sexual punishment and degradation of women like 50 shades of grey will be hotly debated. It is not healthy.

Mars rules the military, so cutting of funding which has just been announced.  Mars is cutting, brain salad surgery and sexual operations. Marrs rules the head. BIG HEADACHE TIME.

MARS rules the Aries countries of ENGLAND GERMANY PALESTINE ISRAEL SYRIA and LITHUANIA and POLAND and such cities of Florence Naples Marseilles. So they will be pulling back.

Mars rules the SCORPIO countries of FINLAND, NORWAY, MOROCCO, QUEENSLAND, KOREA, SYRIA, the TRANSVAAL, and cities of  Baltimore, Cincinnati, New Orleans, Liverpool and Washington D.C. 

Mars rules firemen, and they must be overly careful at this time. Also dangerous explosives, sharp equipment.

I would not schedule surgery during a Mars Retrograde. I would not buy anything new if it can be avoided. There will be problems with energy of all types but especially NUCLEAR EMERGY a SCORPIO item. FUKUSHIMA and radiation from there reaching U.S. shores comes to mind. Take iodine.

THE NEW MOON in PISCES 

AWESOMELY BEAUTIFUL BOUNTIFUL SUN JUPITER TRINE which I wrote about previously 

https://infinitynow.wordpress.com/2014/02/26/download-golden-ticket-light-blessings/

LOTS of water emphasis. NEPTUNE at 5 degrees PISCES is conjunct the SUN AND MOON and CHIRON.

It will be very easy to reach higher consciousness, will feel dreamy, FOGGY with a chance of delusion, and great healing. 

A very introspective emotionally recharging time. PISCES is the 12th house, the house of BLISS, YOGA, meditation, forgiveness, endings.  It is the LAST new MOON before SPRING of this bitterly hard winter in the Northern part of the world. So it’s definitely as shoring up time. 

MARS AND SATURN changing direction on MARCH 2 will cause weather pattern reversals. Where formally you were rejected you will be accepted and vice- versa. It’s review review review time. FINISH up all old business. Expect old lovers to return, old issues that you thoughts you;d thoroughly dealt with. Can make you feel kinda schitzy.

The New moon features VENUS SQUARING MARS and the NORTH NODE

significant relationship turning points.  

THE URANUS  JUPITER Square is still in effect so things will be chaotic,in the home, with family, in new starts and directions.

SATURN  RETROGRADE March 2 – July 20

SATURN RETROGRADE- look for which territory SATURN backslides through in your natal chart this is where you will need to look at unfinished KARMIC LESSONS. 

SATURN in SCORPIO for the last 2 years is aligning with death, with letting go, with dying and being reborn.  Saturn in Scorpio is deep intimacy with another, with your self. Saturn in Scorpio asks us to let go of old outworn ways of dealing with power, the shadow, the unconscious, shared resources. 

Saturn in Scorpio has also brought the dire surgery for women with supposed genetic high risk to cervical cancer like Angelina Jolie to the fore and many thousands of women are opting for this cut out the  maybe affected part now hysterectomy to avoid death by cancer later.

From 23 degrees SCORPIO- 16 + Scorpio. This is our usual  4 months Saturn back track.

Capricorns especially you who are being affected by the CARDINAL GRAND CROSSES – retreat for a few months and reset your grand goals.

ON MARCH 5 Venus moves out of her RETROGRADE SHADOW and into Aquarius.

MARCH 6 JUPITER STATIONS DIRECT  at 10+ degrees CANCER ending a Retrograde which began November 6, 2013 at 20+ degrees Cancer. Jupiter will take till June 1st to pass its own shadow period.

Retronado,Double trouble advice from Tara Greene

Yes it’s a virtual Retronado as Saturn joins Mars turning Retrograde March 2,

one day after Mars goes Retro on the New Moon in Pisces March 1.

Retrograde Astrology Tara Greene

SATURN turns Retrograde @ 23 degrees 19 minutes Scorpio until  July 19 turning Direct @ 16 degrees 39 minutes. 

MARS & SATURN were traditionally known as the two “MALEFICS.”  Meaning bringing difficulty, originally supernaturally.

So these two Retrograde Planets double deal us the heavy hard stuff. Bad cards, ill omens.

It’s like “THE GRIM” in HArry Potter

Saturn is Trouble, obstacles, the third dimension, the tax-man, Father, Corporations, Patriarchal Authority, elders, karma.

Saturn Retrograde reminds me of the Myth of Sisyphus, who was a deceitful King who was punished by having to push a huge boulder up hill all day, which rolled back at night so he had to keep repeating the same thing for eternity.

It may only feel that way. And it won’t last  for ETERNITY.

YES, DO SWEAT THE HARD STUFF.  

It may not be easy. You gotta pay your dues. NO PAIN NO GAIN.

Saturn, modern Ruler of Capricorn,{ also ancient ruler of Aquarius}  also rules death,  aka Father Time, he used to be called the Grim Reaper.

A friend of mine always said ” SATURN ALWAYS WINS.”

Thanatos is a Freudian term for it. Rather like Pluto, Lord of the Dead.  

So Saturn and Pluto share similarities. Pluto is the modern ruler of SCORPIO along with Mars.

Myth of Sisyphus Titian Tara Greene Astrology

THE MYTH of  SISYPHUS by Titian 1548

The BAD BOYS are in cahoots and moving us back to cover our tracks into the shadows….

Up until March 6 there will be 3 personal planets Retrograde. 

DON’T  expect much action in the sex, job or friends optimism and advantages departments during that 5 day period especially.

DO- Enjoy the MOLASSES NESS of it all. Sticky, dark, dramatic, messy.

DO- Slow down, we do far too much rushing around BUSYness these days.

Jupiter will turn Direct March 6 having been RETROGRADE since early November 2013 @ 20 degrees 31 minutes of CANCER.

That will open up some energy flow especially for CANCER, Sagittarius, and Pisces.

MARS currently Retrograding in LIBRA is ruled by Venus. RETROGRADE MARS affects ARIES and SCORPIO especially

MARS turns Retrograde March 1 at 27 degrees 32 minutes of LIBRA until MAY 19.

Mars Retrograde is anger turned inwards, it can affect your health, be careful of not getting too wound up inside.

Exercise is very important to release the steam that  can’t get out. It will help increase low energy.

MARS in LIBRA Retrograde is VERY INDECISIVE.  So don’t expect clear cut answers.

All people, cities countries that are Aries + Scorpio & Capricorn  will feel the FAIL. 

ARIES PLACES

England, Germany, Palestine, Poland, Israel,

SCORPIO PLACES

Syria, New Orleans Louisiana, Paraguay, Morocco,

CAPRICORN PLACES

Mexico. U.K. India, Albania, Brussels Belgium, the Vatican.

There will be energy shifts in those places, hardships, tough times.

SATURN RETROGRADE

Saturn RETROgrade in Scorpio will further affect SCORPIO energy and magnify Mars Retrograde motion 

Double Toil and trouble for you Scorpios,born NOVEMBER 8th – 17th especially… Let’s hear from you. I’ m listening.

Rams too, usually the most amped up energetically of all the signs will feel the lack of oomph energy and drive the most. 

We will all be carrying that weight, Saturn is Lead, depressing, lack of purpose, what’s the point? 

Saturn will make us take responsibility for our actions.  Saturn only moves back about 7 degrees in almost 5 months. 

DO.  revisit any unfinished responsibilities, especially taxes, contracts, unfinished projects.Old family issues, karma, your Dad most especially. Marriage reviews, business associates and the like.

Old sexual problems may surface, shared resources, inheritance, women’s reproductive issues, finances are all Saturn in Scorpio.

DO. Exploring old emotional baggage, the dark heavies, therapy is beneficial, mourning what you have lost and haven’t had time to cry about.

DO EXPRESS GRIEF.

This is  a HUGELY IMPORTANT ISSUE. A client the other day had hives all over her body and they couldn’t tell what was wrong. She was on an elimination diet. I tuned into the fact that her father had died a couple of years ago and she was so busy care taking everyone else that she hadn’t had time to fully mourn herself. She had 5 planets in Libra. I told her to go directly home to cry, to mourn fully in the Jewish tradition for one solid week, To sit shiva for her Dad. I predicted that her symptoms would go away. I also recommended Homeopathic remedies which support grief. 

Remember EVERYONE has the planets Mars and Saturn in their own natal chart somewhere.
