Capricorn Full Moon, power versus love

A powerful Full Moon in Capricorn July 8 @ 9:06 pm PDT, July 9th @ 12:06 am EDT/ July 9 @ 4:06 am GMT conjuncts PLUTO and opposes the SUN and MARS in Cancer. The MOON-PLUTO-SUN MARS opposition creates a GRAND CARDINAL square with ERIS, She Goddess of shit disturbers who starts wars and Jupiter in LIBRA frantically trying to maintain some balance between warring factions. Like House of Cards. 

This makes this a very SCORPIONIC transformative Full Moon, a completion of all the emotional depths we’ve been feeling. The SUN and MARS are comrades in arms in opposition to MOON-PLUTO and there is a highly complex Scorpio type of energy with an entangled mass of aspects also at work. 

Capricorn is symbolized as THE DEVIL in the TAROT #15 Ruled by Planet SATURN who governs all of the material worlds, The DEVIL’s temptation is to choose POWER versus LOVE. Famed Psychologist Carl Jung said “There are only two emotions, power or fear. ” This is exactly the dichotomy that we are being shown here. Power or love? 

MOON conjunct MARS is an angry woman. Yes, PUSSY POWER, The Goddess as a Fierce warrior, WONDER WOMAN was just the big hit movie. Our depths of feelings with Mars and SUN in Cancer is to protect our home, which is our Mother Earth, the environment, and the waters. Anger over the lack of good and safe housing, triggered by those horrific fires in London ignites more anger worldwide about unsafe housing, hospitals, schools, and care facilities. Outrage over the lack of good health care in the U.S. as Trump and Republicans cut off many millions of citizens from any health care. Lack of doctors and nurses, as well as poor treatment of babies and children by the system, could really ignite now. Anti-vaxxers, etc. 

Moon is conjunct PLUTO and the MOON is always the moods of the people and the collective unconscious. This aspect always is intensely sexual, manipulative, power hungry and secretive. Watch out for your shadows appearing as adversarial people.

The SUN is will power, identity, life force energy and the opposition against the PLUTOCRACY means that the people are angry, very angry at the core of their beings and will rise up against the Government and Corporate structures trying to suppress and keep then down. 

On a personal level, expect big power struggles at home. Men are feeling frustrated by a lack of jobs, or frustration on the job and at home; and their own masculinity, and may take it out on their families. Women usually bear the brunt of the abuse. 

The SCORPIO overtone to this very practical earthy Capricorn Moon is transmutation and transformation of sexual predators. Mars in Cancer at its darkest is pedophilia. The Vatican just had to shut down a gay orgy. More and more of these secret Scorpio sex money and power over abuses will be coming to light, especially when Jupiter enters SCORPIO in OCTOBER for a whole year. Sex is not about power but about love. Children need to be protected, cherished and nurtured and allowed to remain innocent from sexual matters until they are old enough. The overly sexualized culture needs to change too.

BIG HOT GRAND FIRE TRINE still burns

Saturn Retrograde in SAGITTARIUS trines ERIS and URANUS in ARIES and the NORTH NODE in LEO plus VESTA in LEO.

Vesta/Hestia, Goddesses, tara Greene

VESTA Goddess of the Hearth and sacred sex

A BIG HOT GRAND TANTRIC FIRE TRINE still burns
 
Saturn Retrograde in SAGITTARIUS trines ERIS and URANUS in ARIES and NORTH NODE and VESTA in LEO.
Capricorn Full Moon JUly 2017 Tara Greene,
VESTA or Hestia is the Goddess of the hearth and home. She is the primal focus, keeping the home fires burning. She is not a virgin as in sexually chaste, but the archetype of a Tantric Priestess who uses kundalini energy to open her chakras and her womb to heal, to understand and know on a spiritual level.
Vesta is the root word of INVESTMENTS.
This could blaze a new sexual revolution as women value their bodies, time and creativity more. Their role as biological birth givers is in their DNA and the higher purpose of sexuality is being rediscovered by women as they heal their wombs and their self-worth and values themselves as vessels of the divine as individual Goddesses by virtue of being woman born.

Ask yourself what are you invested in? Fire is spirit, Uranus is radical change and freedom, Saturn in Sagittarius is all about higher laws, philosophy, inspiration, optimism, traveling, honesty and freedom, North Node in LEO is about courage, daring, passion, creative self-expression. What does your spirit yearn to do to inspire yourself and others? 

SATURN and AQUARIUS SOUTH NODE form a Finger of God to SUN and MARS

The Famed “Finger of God” or YOD aspect brings two planets or objects in a sextile, 60 degrees away- Saturn in Sagittarius and South Node, into an awkward inconjunct a 150-degree angle to the SUN and MARS.  This reframes the anger against the system as the disparate signs and elements can’t talk to each other. 

Venus in GEMINI is sextile to Mercury in Leo both quincunx JUNO in CAPRICORN

A nice affair of the heart and the mind, tete a tete. Very sympatico. But the YOD another Finger of GOD/Dess makes things difficult.

LILITH at 16 SAGITTARIUS squares NEPTUNE in PISCES
 
This is a tense aspect that provokes change. Lilith is the archetype of the Goddess, the Primal Divine Feminine in her dark aspect. She is the necessary balance to the nurturing life-giving Mother archetype.
The myth of man-made religions put down of the Goddess, of women’s spirituality and sexuality the addition to a projection of the Perfect Mother, and delusion of what Goddess spirituality is and what and who women are is in the process of being rewritten now by women like me and many hundreds of others. 
LILITH refused to bow down to any male expectations, even their man mad God which millions of people revere as real. Screw that illusion, a 5,000 year old propaganda brainwashing campaign.
And last but not least..
CHIRON IN PISCES Squares CERES in GEMINI at critical degrees
Chiron Retrograde is helping us to sift through the spiritual silt of our deepest emotions and unconscious shadows. Ceres in GEMINI also has to do with the split in our minds. CERES is the archetype of the Unconditional Loving Mother, the opposite of LILITH.
Think about what our words can say. They can harm or they can heal. Think about your own self-denial and culpability. Take account of words you may have said that caused self- harm, or harm to others. Forgive yourself now by allowing the Great mother to whisper a lullaby in your head. 
Use this powerful Full Moon to complete goals and set new boundaries and standards.

Sexual intensity. Essential astro aspects June 26-July 2

An essential and quick overview of this week’s aspects:

The Moon travels through 4 signs during this week.

The MOON proudly roars from FIRE sign Leo June 26-June 27th

MOON enters VIRGO on 27th @ 5:41 pm PDT/ 8:41 pm EDT/ 28th @12:41 am GMT

MOON into AIRY LIBRA June 30 @ 12:02 am PDT/ 3:02 am EDT/ 7:02 am GMT

MOON into WATERY SCORPIO July 2 @ 9:59 am PDT/ 12:59 pm EDT/4:59 pm GMT 

PLANETARY ASPECTS

June 27 MERCURY in CANCER SQUARE JUPITER in LIBRA in the afternoon

Kindness in words and graceful relations

This Cardinal aspect brings tender words and sentimental thoughts to those we are in close relationship with, our partners, children, family as well as colleagues and all “others” we connect with in the world. Make your words sound like how fine food and wine taste. 

MERCURY in CANCER TRINES NEPTUNE in PISCES

Our thoughts, words and our emotions are what creates our realities. This aspect allows our consciousness, connected with our emotions and feelings to connect easily with our dreams, our spiritual yearning for Oneness, our dreams of romance, soul mates, faith, spirit, and creativity.

It’s recommended that you allow your creativity to pour forth through your feelings.  Try doing this through music, dance, sounding, acting, singing. Speak from the tenderness of your soul, from your higher self, give voice to your dreams. Write spiritual songs and love poetry.

June 28 MERCURY conjunct MARS in CANCER 

We are able to put words to what we feel. Speak from your hunger of what would soothe and feed your soul and make you feel safe. Be open to receiving the nourishment and care of others. Allow others to know your vulnerable side. 

VENUS in TAURUS inconjunct SATURN in SAGITTARIUS

Venus in Taurus just wants to indulge all her senses in this Garden of Eden all the time. Saturn is the Cosmic Cop and this part of our consciousness is not into all those indulgences. Saturn says NO, you have to earn it, you have to be mature, you have to try harder you have to sweat at the gym, learn more, understand more before you can indulge. 

June 29 MERCURY in CANCER opposes PLUTO in CAPRICORN

All oppositions are tugs of war. Mercury is our conscious mind and in Cancer the mind is very much in touch with our feelings. Pluto is our unconsciousness mind. Pluto is the heavier of the two. This aspect brings us the opportunity to reflect on the inherent duality of what we think we want to fulfill our needs for emotional security versus what our Unconscious shadows contain. It’s a good time to vocalize it, talk about it, journal it. Therapy time. 

JULY 1 CHIRON TURNS RETROGRADE at 28+ degrees PISCES

Chiron, the wounded healer, shaman, is almost at the last most critical degree of the last and most spiritual, ephemeral, emotional sign of Pisces now. Just when we thought we have dealt with all of our wounds, excess emotional baggage and addictions, purified our egos, our souls and dealt with all of our unconscious shadow materials Chiron says UH UH UH. Not so fast. 

Traditionally shamans are able to travel between the Upper Worlds of Spirit and the  Lower worlds of the dead, the shades, as well as the middle world of our everyday reality at will.  Chiron will certainly drag us, most likely in denial, kicking and screaming most of the way through many more layers of our psyches helping us to reveal things that have been buried so deeply we may be totally unconscious of them. This is where the real hidden gold and jewels are, the real, authentic, buried treasure at the bottom of the ocean of our emotions and our souls greatest treasures. This Retrograde journey helps us heal these last parts, to complete another aspect of our soul’s journey. 

 

Chiron will be RETROGRADE until December 5th, 2017 when the WOUNDED HEALER/SHAMANIC TEACHER Turns DIRECT @ 24+ degrees PISCES. 

So focus all of your attention on this healing journey now, for the next 4 and a half months. That’s half a pregnancy cycle.

Chiron will leave PISCES and complete a journey started 50+ years ago. CHIRON enters ARIES on APRIL 17, 2018 symbolizing a brand new journey. Chiron Retrogrades out of ARIES back into Pisces on SEPTEMBER 26 and finishes up 2018 at 28+ degrees PISCES where it is right now.  Look at this 2017 Retrograde as the second to last retrieval of our most buried treasures as our last chance opportunity to really do our deepest healing. 

Chiron Finally enters ARIES on February  18, 2019, to stay for 4+ years. 

JULY 2 MARS OPPOSITE PLUTO @ 18+ degrees

Leonora Carrington   THE ORDEAL OF OWAIN, 1959      39 1/4 by 31 1/4 in

Both Mars and PLUTO govern the sign of SCORPIO, the sign of DEATH, rebirth, and transformation. This is a heavy aspect. Mars is in CANCER where he is not happy being smothered by mother love. Mars wants to be the hero, the warrior, the fighter. He is defending the family now and “family values.” PLUTO in CAPRICORN is the collective shadow. What we fear the most. Those fears are relative. If we are ultra conservative Republicans we fear women’s sexual freedom, gays and Muslims, refugees, Islāmic Terrorists, black men, Mexican immigrants, Democrats, and anyone who isn’t a good old privileged white boy. If we are Democrats these days our shadows are Republicans and Donald Trump.

Mars in the Tarot is associated with the tarot card of THE TOWER #16

PLUTO and MARS are both associated with Tarot Card #13 DEATH and Scorpio.

MARS and PLUTO both rule sex, money, power, war, death, psychology, obsession, BDSM and control issues.

There will be Major sexual intensity this week. 

The PATRIARCHY and the Corporate 1%’s are attempting to destroy women and the family’s intrinsic value through major heavy handed societal, cultural and political controlling issues around women’s reproductive freedom and rights, rights of women in all cultures, women in the workforce, and cultural demands of consumerism and obedience to the Corporate world for everyone. On the other side of this is transgender and sexual reconfiguration of what is normal and the legislation of this in the West. 

All oppositions pit one side against the other. We can see this dichotomy growing tenser and tenser in world politics. Something may give. This aspect can trigger nuclear bombs, terrorist explosions and attacks.

Death, sex, transformation, Saturn returns to Scorpio

Saturn, lord of Karma, the real host of Reality re-enters Scorpio June 14, Flag day in the U.S.  The Sun in Gemini conjuncts and sets fire to Mars today too. Mars rules Scorpio traditionally and this will definitely feel intensely sexual, with angry outbursts of bravado and ego energy amping up our minds and Souls/Sol as we really confront that Scorpionic energy. Wherever Saturn goes that is where reality is and where we are being tested. 

All of our greatest fears and biggest deepest shadows are what we need to wade through during this period. This culture is terrified of death and ageing, traditional cultures honored the elderly and their dead ancestors. 

Saturn is Chronos, Father Time, the Lord of Karma, death and maturity. Pluto is Lord of Death, transformation, refuse, the unconscious, sexuality, power, control, secrets, obsession. These last three months of return to Hades realm, the underworld, Hell, the valley of the shades is huge. We are dealing with Two death-dealing and transformational very powerful planetary Gods. 

I know some people are terrified of this but I see it as a  huge last-ditch literal opportunity to re-immerse ourselves in deep shit shadow work. Saturn is leading us into the filth, rot, refuse, and trenches of Hades, Pluto’s realm again. We should be waving white “I surrender” flags.The underworld is our upper world. 

Everything which we project onto “others” as bad,unacceptable or fearful is our own unaccepted shadow material. To fundamentalist Christians it is everything that is not them- transgender, or gay people. To racists it is blacks, Hispanics, Muslims or Jews, “goyim” ; to vegans it is meat eaters.  We need to move through our own shadows and learn to accept them in order to become whole and balanced.  The shadow is fear itself, fear of the unknown, fear of death, fear of getting old of being alone.

Saturn will spend 3 months till September 17 in Scorpio just before the Shemitah year finishes September 14/15  Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year. 

Saturn will be moving at a snail’s pace in Retrograde motion back to 28+ degrees of Scorpio until August 1st/2nd when it turns Direct.  Saturn is lead, and so we will all be feeling Saturn’s heavy weight to everything we do.

We will be getting the first close contact with Pluto as the New Horizons spacecraft makes its closest fly-by ever on July 14. Pluto’s discover Clyde Tombaugh’s ashes are aboard the spacecraft a fitting tribute. The symbolism is also so synchronous.

Saturn devouring his son- Goya 1819-1823

Saturn Goya Art Astrology Tara Greene

Saturn only traverses any sign once every 28/29 years. Gotta do the work NOW.

Last time Saturn was in Scorpio was November 29, 1982 -May 6, 1983 and August 24, 1983- November 17, 1985 when AIDS was first discovered. They are having or have just had their FIRST SATURN RETURN. 

Previous Scorpio Saturn peeps were born October 1953-October 1956 and the third Saturn in Scorpio generation was born  between 1924-1926. 

Saturn is in mutual reception with Pluto again as they were for the last two years.

Saturn entered Scorpio Oct 5, 2012 -Dec 23 2014. 

Saturn symbolizes the father, any incest and all types of sexual abuse by males is one of the major shadows we need to face. Long buried memories from this life time or even past lives need to be rooted out.   Scorpio is deep emotions, any type of felt emotional abuse by anyone; a parent, teacher, authority figure, or stranger needs to be embraced, cried through and brought out into the Light. 

We need to also face up to the darkness of where we are being abused through power and control everywhere in the world by the media, governments, banks, religion,education, the medical establishments, politics, culturally and in our personal lives and where we ourselves abuse power. 

We need to fess up with our secrets, coming clean is healing. Obsessions, rage, control, OCD, our defenses, our projections and hates, that is all shadow material. 

Pluto astrology Tara Greene art

PLUTO with Cerberus unknown artist

“We find that by opening the door to the shadow realm a little, and letting out various elements a few at a time, relating to them, finding use for them, negotiating, we can reduce being surprised by shadow sneak attacks and unexpected explosions.”
-Clarissa Pinkola Estes Women who run with the Wolves, 

If we howled our grief and fear together perhaps this would create a movement, and communities would howl one to another like wolves do and our howling would raise the buried dead parts of ourselves back to life,like the sounding of Gabriel’s trumpet. 

Depending on which house Saturn is Transiting and the aspects Saturn triggers as well in your  astrology chart that will give us major clues on what material you need to work through. Especially difficult will be Saturn transitting the 12th or 8th house.

“To confront a person with his shadow is to show him his own light. Once one has experienced a few times what it is like to stand judging between the opposites, one begins to understand what is meant by the self. Anyone who perceives his shadow and his light simultaneously sees himself from two sides and thus gets in the middle. ~ Carl Jung

I am creating a support group so that we can share our common fears, shadows and experiences. This transit affects everyone in the world.  I am waiting a bit till after Saturn re-enters Scorpio to start. This will be a weekly teleconference. we will use astrology, the tarot, dream work, and exercises to work through and do rituals and make art with our shadow parts.

If this calls to you please email me. I am figuring out a fee and the best time to schedule as there are people in various time zones. taragreenetarot@gmail.com

Taurus New Dark Moon, healing the demons

A Taurus New Moon brings out our laziness and that is why I am a bit late here this month.

NEW MOON May 17 @ 9:13 pm /May 18 @ 12:13 a.m. EDT/ 4:13 am GMT @ 26 + degrees of Taurus 

It is an INtense sensual in the body New Moon, with a wicked kick of potential healing and exorcising of fear around women’s sexuality and awakening Kundalini energy. We are riding the bull and riding the snake. Note Taurus and Scorpio opposition.

Kundalini Yoga Tara Greene astrology

All New Moon’s are new intentions. We are back where it all began in the dark VOID of all potential.

New Moons were traditionally the time for all women to be menstruating in the world.  Before electric lights threw women’s natural rhythms off, women always bled in synchronicity with the Moon’s cycles. All the women were gathered  in the Red tent, the moon lodge, yurt, cave or temple. This was the holiest of holy times. The word Tabu originally meant sacred. The women would bleed onto their mother the earth giving back the life-giving blood which creates all life.  

The New Moon is exactly on the star with the blackest reputation of all  ALGOL, Medusa’s head. A very DARK delicious New MOON indeed. This star symbolizes the patriarch’s greatest fear of women’s sexuality, of her sacred menstrual blood and her erotic power to destroy a man’s ego with sacred sexuality.  Which is what he fears and what he needs most to touch soul.

Fixed star expert Diana K. Rosenberg says the star is associated with ” Violence, beheading, hanging, choking, asphyxiation, electrocution, murder, mob violence.” so be aware of this over the next month.

This very physical Taurus New Moon will take us deep into the darkness of the caves within ourselves where we create our own realities. We will have to battle the shadow, the monster, the dragon, the Gorgon, our personal shadows in whatever form it manifests.

Medusa was originally an Amazon warrioress from Lybia. Her dreadlocks or snakes symbolize  her spiritual or Kundalini transformative powers. Women warriors were fighting back against the advancing Patriarchy. 

KUNDALINI energy

This sacred force which rises form the base of the spine up the chakras to the head awakens cosmic consciousness. This powerful regenerative force has always been symbolized by a snake and many cultures revered -or like Christianity and Judaism feared snakes for this reason. Kundalini energy clears old traumas, and brings enlightenment. Sacred sexuality, symbolized by the snakes was the major initiation path that men received in the Holy Temples of the Goddess, which all women served at before they married. Especially after war this rite was Holy to clear the men from profane bloodshed which we now call P.T.S. D. into sacredness and oneness again.

Read my articles on awakening Kundalini energy on the Cosmic Intelligence Agency site

Algol has many symbols yet she has a Saturn- Jupiter ruling. This star also has positive attributes. Capulus the star proceeding Algol is the handle of the sword which Perseus used to cut off the demons head. But if you know the story it was using the mirror which enabled Perseus to get close enough to slay the demon. ALgol is not Lillith do not get them confused.

The name Algol comes from the Arabic for ghoul or demon. It also means alcohol which Muslims are forbidden to drink. As Psychologist Carl Jung realized the word alcohol or spirit is the same name as spirituality. The soul speaks in metaphors and puns as it does in dreams.The thirst for alcohol to quench emotional pain is an outer bandage against the pain when what the soul needs to heal is spiritual healing.

Algol points out our need to escape from pain through drugs, TV, sex, money power, shopping, whatever your drug of choice is. That escapism is fear and a refusal to listen to the inner pain for the soul’s cry for healing and redemption by the Source. 

With Mercury turning Retrograde May 18 we will definitely be looking back, looking inwards.

Use this New Moon to Full Moon time to

ensure that you are in your body and that your heads are not separated from our entire beings. Taurus energy is brave and we can ride the bull to stubbornly face our shadows, by seeing them reflected everywhere. By doing the great work we will be less critical, rejecting, racist, and we can learn to give the demon the love it is truly needing. We will learn to love ourselves as or neighbour.

Women need to embrace their sacred menstrual blood and their bleeding times as Holy, to be in their bodies. The modern Red Tent movement is hugely successful as it reminds woman of what they need to be whole.  Start at this New Moon.

 Mercury Retrograde is square Neptune 

this is the perfect time to see how faded out people are. How little you are in touch with your body instincts and reality and to change this.

Mars in Gemini is also square Neptune

We can use the sharpness of Mars in our minds to cut through the denial and deal with our addictions.

Venus opposite PLUTO over the next week is very powerful.

Unconscious family power struggles erupting, secret love affairs, passion, erotic fantasy, healing in the family, tenderness or power? Women struggling against the patriarchal structures.. Passive-aggressive. Stock market can be erratic. 

Jupiter is Trine to URANUS 

this is innovative, rebellious, high-tech, courage, over-confident,but also brings confident to be your own unique individual.

Mars is still opposite Saturn

so tread lightly. It is also  involved in a large T- square of Sun conjunct Mars opposite Saturn square Neptune. 

This aspect can be very positive and creative. It will be a challenge to stay on your highest heights. 

GRAND AIR TRINE

North Node to Ceres in Aquarius to Mars/Mercury 

CERES is the great Mother and all heroes pledged fealty to HER. The north node in Libra calls for equality, fairness, balance, judiciousness, wise thinking and a big overview.

As a re-initiated Snake Priestess I will use this New Moon to convene with my Inner snake Goddess, Lilith.  See video by my teacher Kathleen

This is a powerful New Moon of transformation of shedding the old skins, of bravery, solid courageousness, plodding the earth in search of beauty, sensuality and creativity. 

Nourish your body, and your soul. Set new long-term intentions for  6 months from now.

SNAKE YOGA by Kathleen Graham

Saturn Retrograde, going obsessively downtown

March 14 SATURN turns RETROGRADE in Sagittarius @ 8:02 a.m. PDT/11:02 a.m. E.D.T.

Saturn Retrograde astrology mystic Tara Greene

Yes the planet of Karma, Taxes, death, old age, pensions, senators, plumbers, seniors, heavy laborers, architects, leaders, chiropractor’s, who was known as The DEVIL, turns Retrograde on his annual backtrack until August 2nd. Saturn leaves Sagittarius, he will re-enter Scorpio June 14 and the astro-weather will be stormy.

 

Talk about Bringing SEXY BACK! Saturn finally re-enters Sagittarius again September 17 until 2017.

Saturn is the Old tester, the obstacle maker, the one who piles the traps, trials and tribulations higher. Saturn is like lead, he is never light weight, even in Sagittarius which is a fiery sign of inspiration. OK. Saturn in Sagittarius brings us some levity, it’s true. Tie a few balloons to the anvil and see if it floats. Saturn in Sagittarius rules those jihadist religious slayers of extremist I.S.

Saturn rules Reality per se. Anything that takes physical third dimensional form- Saturn governs it. 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. We all have to pay homage to Saturn as he rules aging and death.  

As Saturn moves backwards from Lighter Sagittarius back into deep murky boggy sexual secrets, shadows, rape, psychology, power, control, secrets, finances of SCORPIO we will be back into those deep black Goth waters that we have wanted to forget about so quickly, especially because Saturn and Neptune have been in an approaching square which will become exact in November this year.

Neptune is all angels and Heavenly. Neptune  spiritualisez, makes sacred, tunes up the vibe to the Highest unconditional love. Saturn represent the “profane” world of matter of downtown, the Underworld. 

Saturn just left Scorpio on December 23, 2014! Yes how easy it was to un-remember the last 2.5 years of Saturn in Scorpio and all the hard work, the intense drama, the endless emotional battles, the sucker punches, the obsessing, the holding on, the breaking down, the losses, the power struggles and revenge.We are talking life and death, sex, power and money here. All the biggies.

But uh uh uh. NOT SO FAST. ANY and ALL unfinished OBSESSIONS, psychosis,shadows that you haven’t dealt with- GUESS WHAT? Saturn will smack you upside your privates to get you to deal with them now. And I would advise you to face that scary scary place now or forever hold your breath because it will take another 29 years till you get another opportunity.  And see it as an opportunity please. 

Yes it doesn’t sound so sweet or pretty to know that you have to open PANDORA’s box again. Or even just now. Pandora’s box is really the secret treasure-house of all that ails you.

Pandpra by John WIlliam Waterhouse Tara Greene

PANDORA by John William Waterhouse 1896 

All your own psychological shit that is running and most likely ruining your ego’s desires.  That is not a bad thing. 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!

Once you own your own shit you won’t project it onto anyone else. Instant cleanser. In the Greek myth, Pandora’s box unleashed 8 monsters-7 of which were the 7 deadly sins. But there was also an 8th called “hope.”

Saturn will re-enter Scorpio June 14– September 17

That is an entire whole INTENSE emotional death and rebirth three-month show.

If you are Born November 19-27 you  are in the spotlight.

So where is 4 degrees Sagittarius-back to 28 degrees SCORPIO in your astrology chart? That small patch of 6 degrees, much like the length of a penis is critical. Just like a penis, it is what you do with it, not how long it is that counts.

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

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 three months coming up to get dirty, be brave and transform the monsters in your deep psyche into the gold and the angels that will become your guides. It’s like taming a dragon.  

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. 

Everyone who was born January – April 1985 and Late October 1985, yes millions of people around the world  will be experiencing your fist SATURN RETURN now, because you have Saturn at the last few degrees of Scorpio. If you were born between November 1985 – February 1988  and June -November 1988 you will be experiencing your first Saturn Return sometime over the next two years. 

When the shit comes down you better be ready.

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

Optimistic fire Trines, Mercury in Pisces

MARS conjunct URANUS square PLUTO 3/11/15

Anger, chaos, unexpected power struggles. My son and I had an argument. Well I saw three women have a screaming match on the subway and they were threatening each other loudly. A bicyclist was sideswiped by a Toronto Streetcar I was on in the evening. The man wasn’t wearing a helmet and he was very lucky to be thrown onto the sidewalk. His ankle seems to have been hurt but he was conscious. A passenger called 911 and the ambulance came within minutes. Still I rarely am at the scene of anything like this. How was it for you?

Moon is now in Sagittarius till Saturday morning bringing optimism to the fire.

Horsey Moon conjuncts Saturn for sobering dreams or a night of dead sleep.

Moon squares Neptune to make it a very idealistic dreamy and foggy  morning.

MOON TRINES JUPITER & URANUS  at night

light a bonfire. celebrate fire. light candles at least, sparklers, 

Burn some old effigies  or things you don’t want in your life anymore. Make some positive intentions. Celebrate before the heavy weekend when Saturn goes RETROGRADE.

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.

Healing the heart that loves weekend

Yesterdays Sun Jupiter opposition, with Earth sandwiched between, those two giants was very intense. Like a super lunar eclipse, as if the earth could cast its shadow on Gigantic Jupiter. I like to be optimistic. I am a triple Sagittarius with Natal Jupiter in Aries in my 5th house. I am very Jupiter ruled. So I focus on the positive energies of Sun /Jupiter. But, anytime we are dealing with the shadow it is not always all that sunny. You can quote me on that.

shadow work Tara Greene

My experience of it was something directly opposite. The energies were raging around me with people ranting, raving and spewing out all their repressed anger and resentment energies earlier in the day. Then I went through another round of that in the evening but it eventually all calmed down and I ended up at a birthday celebration at Lee Kitchen, celebrity chef Susur Lee, known as the Father of Fusion, restaurant in downtown Toronto.

How did you find it?

This weekend  is a LOVE HEALING FEST WEEKEND

with Venus sextile Pluto  and a very healing conjunction between Venus and Chiron tomorrow. 

Moon enters LIBRA Saturday afternoon where it will stay throughout the weekend featuring social niceties abounding. Energy is all about relationships. Venus rules Libra.

Moon trines Mercury in Aquarius so there’s a lot of very airy, light talk. Conversations are like souffle’s. Don’t blow any hot air or talk too loud.

Moon sextile to Saturn in Sagittarius. It’s a very casual mood, with parties with lots of laughs,and exaggerated adventure stories. Mood is ruggedly social, get out your plaid shirt.

FEB 8/9

Sunday is the Cardinal cross energy once again. You know the steps to this serious dance already.

A couple of quirky qincunx’s occur between Moon and Venus and Chiron bring to a deeper level what is NOT working. All of this is keys to unlocking it.

 VENUS conjuncts Chiron in PISCES Feb 8 PST/ Feb 9 EST

The possibilities of deep soul healings are boundless.The gift is in being vulnerable enough to go through the pain. The healing is in the pain

MEDITATE on HEALING the wounds

Do a mini- soul  retrieval by meditating on the core patterns in your life. Lay down and breathe and ask to follow the core issues in your relationships or lack thereof.  Keep breathing and moving through it. You already have the answers, you can uncover the source. Try doing some artwork from the feelings. This is what my work with clients is all about.

The gift Napoleon Brousseau art

“recovery notebook” by Napoleon Brousseau

Do look at your own shadows in love. That is Pluto’s territory. Sextiles are easy aspects which facilitate an easy flow of energy.  Venus in Pisces is all about compassion, forgiveness, putting yourself in the other person’s shoes, feeling that sense of oneness. 

Moon also sextiles Jupiter in PST late sunday night/next day EST

Critical Shadow work, strength, magical helpers.

Saturn, the planet of manifestation, Lord of the physical world, the GRIM REAPER, death, time, obstacles, limitations  is at the 29th most critical degree of SCORPIO now which is also the sign of DEATH, rebirth, transformations, power struggles, secrets.

We are in the critical death period. The deepest darkest most dense SCORPIONIC intense part of the crucible. This is the dregs, the blackest, most fearful, shodowfilled part of the entire zodiac.  Like the animal which Scorpio is named for, Scorpions will sting their enemy without remorse, they are cold calculating killers. Yesterday I was thinking about all of this and the phrase “THE HORROR, THE HORROR.” from Joseph Conrad’s  Heart of Darkness appeared in  my mind. I woke up to find the news.

The terrible TALIBAN shooting which killed 133 children at a military school on the 16th is part of the crucible.  My heart goes out to all the parents and the families of those killed in this bloody massacre. Terrorism, I wondered where this modern scourge came from. I remember the first mention of it in 1975 at the Olympics against the Isreali’s. 

Malala Yousafzi who was herself a target of the Taliban in Pakistan spoke out that we must stop the Taliban scourge. The President of Pakistan publically stated there will be revenge for every child killed.

The intensity of the 6th Uranus Pluto square unleashes unexpected chaos and TERRORISM in the  form of the hackers who ransacked through Sony Corporation. Uranus is the Internet and Pluto is secrets power, control. Cyber terrorism is another literal manifestation of this energy. Welcome to  modern age warfare.  The Group who seem obviously to be working for North Korea over the comedy movie “The Interview” with Seth Rogen and James Franco are threatening 911 type attacks in America.  How bizarre is that? That is NEPTUNE in PISCES which is already being squared by SATURN.   La la land and reality colliding. That’s the next major aspect we have to deal with the  next few months. We are all falling through the Rabbit hole collectively.

The war against Terrorism is like cancer, it is a war against our own shadows, our own selves. 

So look deeply into that sector of your own Astrology chart and circle the last degree of SCORPIO, it is the test of death in 2014 which we will have to repeat in mid June 2015 when Saturn Retrogrades back to 28 degrees, turning direct August 1 then dragging us through the last terrible degree until September 17 when Saturn finally enters Sagittarius for the next 2.5 years.

We must all look our own shadows in the face, many don’t want to look, are afraid of what they might find. Just like in the Fairy Tales, we must look into the dark mirror, open the black box,dive into  the dark well the deep pool, enter the forbidden cave in order to gain the prize. But that’s not why we venture on.

Be brave and strong and fearless, use Jupiter in Leo’s STRENGTH to guide you. Death also carries rebirth and help from those who have passed on and are in spirit form. You can call on the dead to help you to have strength. Just like in Harry Potter.Wwhen all else fails, USE MAGIC.

CARD Of the DAY

HARRY POTTER TAROT 

Harry Potter spells magic Tara Greene tarot

“EXPECTO PATRONUM”

The planet is there for a reason now. Use Jupiter Retrograde to go back into the fear, the obstacles, the greatest struggles, your  own shadows, yes those you get triggered by emotionally. Look at what is it that triggers you. Those people, the ones you can’t stand, be it a religious group, a person, fat people, “dumb” people, government officials,- OK that’s different. Look at all of those people as disowned parts of yourself and accept them and send love to and Bless those parts.

Politically though, unless we all do this the situation can’t entirely change.  Those who hate are in fear and ignorance. Ignorance and hatred and fear because of religious fanaticism and violence can plunge the entire world into darkness once again. We must not allow that to happen. 

A week from now with Saturn in Sagittarius it will seem that everything will magically change. There will be renewed hope and optimism even with Saturn there. You can be your own Wizard or Fairy Godmother.

 

But taking responsibility for your own shit is the first task.

Saturn is limitations and Sagittarius is international relations, religion and laws. There will be International co-operation to stop terrorism and the Taliban for sure. Borders will be built, and maintained. There will be prison camp areas where certain religious fanatical groups will be contained. There may be mind control technique used to rehabilitate religious fanatics. There will be laws about what can be taught about religion. Immigration to foreign countries will also stop. No more refugees status. There will be an end to liberal tolerance of religious intolerance. Many foreigners will be sent back to their countries of origin unless they agree to live by the laws, language and tolerance for women, gays and secular societies. Holland, which is a very tolerant country implemented this policy  years ago. America cannot stay in a Christian Fundamentalist mindset in this day and age either. Teaching creationism is equal to any religious fundamentalist teaching. 

It may not be actually that easy. But Sagittarius is Hope and faith and higher vision and inspiration. Saturn will keep us grounded and visionary.  We will be picking up speed. I will write more about Saturn in Sag. and how to prepare you for the final critical part f the journey next Summer. I think I will teach a long course on that one.

DESPERATE MEASURES_ MARIANAS TRENCH 

 

 

 

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.

painting MArs Venus Astrology Tara Greene

PAINTING  by Canova, 3 Graces and venus dancing before Mars circa 1798

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.
