Sagittarius time

November 21 It’s SAGITTARIUS time and the 9th house rules. We are all under the SAGITTARIUS half human half horse, hoof in mouth centaur beams of truth justice and humor now.

In the Tarot Sagittarius is the KNIGHT of WANDS,the fire of fire.

 

As a Double Sagittarius- that means that my Sun and Moon are both in the horsey set sign. Plus my MERCURY, my mouthpiece is also in the big toothed, equine. Everyone has some Saggy 9th house territory where you tell it like it is in their chart somewhere.

Check out which house the SUN is highlighting for the next month. That is where you will be bouncy, honest, needing space, inspiring and chomping at the bit to travel.

Remember that JUPITER Sagittarius’ ruling planet is now in SCORPIO and remains there until November 2018. This Sagittarius season will be more Scorpio like with the fire dampened by heavy obsessive clouds. Moister deeper sexier with black humor. Be careful not to be as naive as usual Sagittarius because others will take advantage of you.

Sagittarius KEYWORDS

Inspiring, intuitive, fiery, sporty; think of Katniss Everdeen from the Hunger Games – The perfect Sagittarius poster girl with her arrows and her dress on fire. Sag’s love FREEDOM, exotica, foreigners, higher learning, philosophy, legal matters,  sports, animals.

Do plan your long distant travels now.  Do something nice for animals and tell the truth for a whole month.

Optimism,freedom wars, sexy truth astrology

Mars enters Sagittarius September 13 until October 26  

Goodbye to Mars in Scorpio’s Intense, heart and soul wrenching  obsessive dramas, ruthlessness, control playing seductions since July 25. Interesting that on the last day of Mars in Scorpio Toronto Mayor Rob Ford withdraws his re-election bid because of a suspected tumor and his bro Douggy Ford steps in. I had predicted that Rob Ford would not be in the running for the election in my 2014 predictions- see http://www.taratarot.com/id183.html

 Toronto is a Sagittarius city. Things will be heating up in politics- A Sagittarius theme now for sure bound to be comedic.

Wherever MARS is is where the action is literally. Masculine, war god, angry, defensive, sex, passion is CENTAURIFIC.

Sagittarius Centaur Tara Greene

The next 6 weeks features, amongst other things- like President Obama’s speech, fighting on foreign soil, religious freedom.

Its so literal. Sagittarius rules Foreigners, International travel, religions, freedom.

The Centaur is the symbol of reigning in the lower instinctive nature through using human higher consciousness. A very spiritual symbol. Chiron the wounded healer is the constellation of  the Archer itself. Healing  through telling the truth is our main drive.

GO ON THE WARPATH for TRUTH-

in advertising, your friends, partners, lovers, Your self.

The Great Black Hole at the center of our Milky way Galaxy is in Sagittarius tropically and Sidereal.

We will be feeling confident, good-humored, enthusiastic, optimistic, a bit reckless, klutzy at times, adventurous, HONEST, easy going and irresponsible. I have my SUN MOON & Mercury in Sagittarius, tell me about it. DO you know whats happening in Sagittarius in your chart?

MARS will heat up that house and those aspects.

We need to be on the rampage and look GALACTICALLY  towards the central BLACK Hole of our common birth. The great Galactic VOID VAGINA,/time tunnel/wormhole is our commonality, just as here on earth, as above, so below -we are all born of woman. The Masculine is driven home towards the wisdom of the great  Cosmic Mother Unconsciously. Pay attention to this. This is a very clear symbol I am getting while here in Sedona.

SAGITTARIUS, the 9th sign, is the last fire sign, and known for telling the truth. The CENTAUR is a mutable sign, I just saw the word mutable as mutating. The next 6 weeks is a mutating initiation into warrior truth, higher justice tune into these higher teachers for wisdom.

Jupiter Sag’s ruling planet is the planet of the Higher Masters. Jupiter rules courts of justice and judges, Animal rights, higher education, philosophy, sports, preaching, gypsies, teachers, the military, risk-taking, gambling.

SAGITTARIUS  down side

self-righteousness, procrastination, hypocrisy, risk-taking, gambling, uncivilized, brutal, laceratingly honest.

Fess up now.

MARS will Square NEPTUNE  on Sept. 21 the International Day of PEACE

The two tinders of war and peace are rubbing against each other.

Act on igniting your dreams. Or being honest with your addictions.

Mars Trines Uranus on YOM KIPPUR Oct 4/5

Throw an unexpected bomb in a trench on the Anniversary of the  1973 war. Its the mid-life crisis from that time. Read Uranus opposite natal Uranus.

MARS TRINES JUPITER Oct 8 on an ARIES TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE @ 16 degrees Sagittarius

Good one for all Fire signs.

Stallion  SEX and LOVE

Sagittarius and Fire sign men will want freedom to roam sexually during this period. Sagittarius/Centaurs are animal like in their nature. Women too, especially Sagittarius or fire sign ones will feel the passion to be set free. If you love your Sagittarius person, set them free. How you gonna keep them down on the farm? They hate to be chained, caged or ridden.

Venus in Taurus, art critics, true art

Venus enters TAURUS april 15- May 9

She rules the arts. She is the MUSE or divine Goddess of inspiration. That’s why Neptune is her “higher octave.” Venus is earthly fleshy real sex, art, money, luxury, relationships.

 I started out as an artist. At age nine I told my surprised mother that I had decided to be an artist when I grow up, that was that. I had figured out that being an artist was a lisence for escaping the rat race, the normal expected, boring, unconscious way of life.  I saw ART  as FREEEDOM, ANARCHY. I went to OCAD which wasn’t a design school then. My first husband was an artist, my present husband is an artist, our daughter is presently at a performing arts high school.  

I was born with a natal VENUS NEPTUNE EXACT conjunction in Libra the Sign VENUS rules. Yes art is a religion, very spiritual to me.

I happened upon this article in BLOUIN ART INFO -Canadian version. I will excerpt it and provide a link.

FINALLY someone with weight in the art world has spoken the unspoken!  American ART Critic DAVID HICKEY 

what do you think about contemporary art?

There are only a few great critics holding forth in today’s waning critical climate who maintain an element of danger in their invocations. These voices of authority and interrogation bend and veer away from our understood rails of art appreciation into rogue states of wicked qualification, correction, dissent – even revolution. It takes great bravery, in this moment, to call a thing a thing, and something even greater to be compelling and convincing in this effort. These critics tend to say things loosely, ham-fistedly, but with a pulpiteer’s command. They tend to interrupt the academic scaffolding of distance with oratory tempos that are stark and seemingly stupid in their abrupt profundity; they speak with adamancy, and they ring bells that feel assailing.

Among these writers are Peter Schjeldahl, Ben Davis, and Dave Hickey, the infamous and revered American critic who has carved out a voice in the Western art world akin to that of journalism’s Hunter S. Thompson. He has achieved storied laurels – seemingly despite but also because of himself – and has recently and very publically retired from the racket entirely. He has not done this from exhaustion nor age (he is 73) but because his subject has grown too insipid, too “stupid,” he says. It’s easy to believe him.

Dave Hickey did something to Canada, which should not have been unexpected; all the same, it was reviled. Hickey came to Guelph University for the annual Shenkman lecture, and offended everyone.

Importantly, on the eve of Canada financier Jim Flaherty’s federal budget reveal (in which general ‘skills’ were summoned to match the country’s available employment), Hickey produced an argument that had a special relevance for its tender audience, and its economic moment: as he took short aim at his crowd – comprised of provosts, university presidents, deans, professors, students, and former graduates – Hickey commanded we give up our institutions, relinquish our vain pursuit of accreditation, and summoned us to become artists again. “Demand that your students can perform a jump shot,” he said, in one of many references to an idealized world in which the art school was run like an athletic department. “Give up your three cars and pool, and the 4 o’clock meetings, and become an artist again.” But, he amended, if we are to continue in our endeavoring of an arts degree, or in our pursuit of a tenure-track professorship, demand of ourselves and our students skills, results, ambition, and that we kick the 90% that is shit, to the curb.

There are very few of us working from the art world’s bleachers, perhaps even fewer of us trading in its court, who would argue against Hickey’s main thesis: that the academe is destroying contemporary art. However the critic-cum-orator quickly established an antagonism towards his audience that was only further embossed by his seeming casualness.

Clad in a black sweat suit and runners, Hickey approached the podium – after no fewer than three introductions (a performance that would only serve Hickey’s later point on the academe’s overwrought hierarchy) – and very quickly descended into an 80 minute lecture that, while seemingly rudderless (he had no notes, and repeated himself frequently while veering off into anecdote and recurring metaphor) was in its sum a strident call for change. He was appealing to civilization.

“In America, and in Canada in particular, the balkanization of our universities has pretty much destroyed civilization as we know it. I think we’ve done it under the guise of control – as Michel Foucault would say, ‘care is control’ – and I’m here to argue for less of it,” he said. ”I’m here to argue for a little more benign neglect.”

The critic flitted between personal anecdote (quoting his friends Richard Serra, John Baldessari, and his nemeses, Clement Greenberg and Thomas Jefferson), near constant swipes at the academe, a few bigoted slags, and consistent, impassioned invocations for systemic change, though he maintained that “there is no deficit of quality work, it’s just that the world around it has changed.”

While figureheads like John Kissick, Dasha Shenkman, and Matthew Teitelbaum dropped their heads and rubbed their foreheads (with some gesturing wildly for moderator Robert Enright to close the lecture), others held hopeful expressions in a transparent commitment to the critic’s overarching thesis. The exquisite and painful moment of Hickey’s truth and brutalism brought to mind Peter Schjeldahl’s call to arms, of a few years ago, first issued at the New School, and then transcribed for Frieze (March 2011), wherein he spoke of the “irreligious gravitating towards art,” and how its “want tends to be lonesome and blind.”

Schejldahl goes on, “An educated common sense of the last three decades holds that all art is rhetorical and thus a game of pretenses and/or of exposing pretenses. This view is basic to the gaming of art. In fact, all art can be seen that way, but not usefully, if anyone’s experience matters. It ignores the fact that good art happens to us in ways that knock us out or our educations.” Complaining about contemporary art rhetoric and the ubiquity of the term “practice” in relation to an artist’s work, Schjeldahl demands, “When do you stop practising something and do it?”

Hickey would, over the course of his freestyle lecture, emboss this very point (“go pro,” he kept repeating), while damning every academic and art school attendee in the room in myriad ways – some clever (“theory is really easy: it’s like playing poker with no spots on the cards”) and some lazy (“if you are manic depressive, dyslectic, morbidly obese, have down’s syndrome, you end up in the art department”).

At the end of his talk, Hickey was, unsurprisingly, met with a question from an audience member, who began tremulously, “well I’m not afraid,” but went on, gaining confidence, to demand of Hickey just how “serious” he was, because “it’s a huge insult to us who devote our life to the academe; not everybody has the ability to become a basketball player in the NBA.” Hickey responded, “if I was being insulting it’s because I meant to be. There is nothing that I’ve said that I haven’t done. But we’re not talking about your benefits. We’re talking about Western civilization.”

Dave Hickey, a letch, a rogue, a dissenter, an exile, had effectively performed his point. With the very subject of his seeming disdain positioned firmly beyond his pulpit, he exhibited a tremendous affection for its cause and well-being by demanding of it something greater. The Canadian art world and its academe suffered the point, one all too rarely made in this sector, and one never issued at its establishment: be better. As Hickey refrained, “how do you be brave? How do you be brave?” Likely those most angered by Hickey’s lecture will be the ones answering him in spite, and to good effect, in the years to come.
