Women, Kavanaugh and the Burning Path

October’s highlight is Venus Retrograde, of course, October 5-November 16 throwing old relationships, values, women’s issues and the economy into a tailspin.

October 5: Venus stations retrograde: 10 degrees 50 minutes Scorpio

Venus turns Retrograde squaring Mars and Lilith and the South Node in Aquarius 

This means: The revenge of angry women who have been denied their natural power for too long. If you’ve been watching the U.S. Supreme Court nominations you know what this is all about. The November elections are on November 6 when Venus is Retrograde back in Libra at that point.  This Retrograde will have much longer ramifications than just the 40 days. 

Lilith and Mars were exactly conjunct October 1st and will continue to be BFF’s in effect as one until Halloween when Venus moves back into Libra.

VENUS Retrogrades on the Burning Way or Via Combusta October 7-November 7

Via Combusta is Latin for “burning way” or “fiery way”  and is considered malefic or very bad according to ancient astrology by Al Biruni. Why? Because the Libra Sun is weak and in its fall in that sign {Sun is strongest in Aries}. Scorpio is the fall sign of the Moon which is strongest in opposite sign of Taurus. These two signs contain two malefic planets. Saturn which is exalted in Libra and Scorpio, ruled by Mars. 

The Via Combusta is an old Medieval Astrology tool describing the Zodiac between 15 degrees Libra and 15 degrees Scorpio between October 7 and November 7 Yet this is the darkest and alchemically powerful time of the year. Halloween is Witches new year so the bad influence notation is from the church of course. Further Pluto the modern ruler of Scorpio is also the Lord of death and rebirth. 

Venus Retrograde journey is told in astromyth as the tale of Queen Inanna going into the Underworld. It is the most ancient known poem in the world written between 3,500 -1,900 B.C. Inanna is an Ancient Sumerian Goddess of sex, fertility and war goes to be with her sister Ereshkigal whose husband has died. Inanna must be stripped of all her royal belongings down to being turned into a corpse and hung on a nail to rot by her revengeful sister. Read the whole story in the link below. The story is the basis for the myth of Persephone being raped into the Underworld by Pluto and this rings totally in synch with the current U.S. political situation. 

This further symbolizes women on fire and women burning down the house.

Angry backlashes from both men and women are highly volatile during this time. Be careful of gaslighting.

Many relationships will be put to the test during this time, as Venus will be Retrograde until November 16 and in the Underworld.

This is a time to do some really fierce shadow work. To scourge our deepest wounds. These are the sexual abuse issues which have been perpetrated against women for the last 5,000 to 10,000 years. This is billions of women. This is every woman living today in a Patriarchal culture which sees women as chattel, second-class citizens as without the right to their own authority over their own bodies. This includes the millions destroyed in the witch trials. The millions of female infants murdered today simply for being valueless as females.

The Patriarchy pumping and posturing its flaccid muscle is over.

The PHALLOCENTRIC WAY IS A FALLACY. The Emperor has no power. 

I was an early feminist. I realized my life and freedom was over at 12 when I first got my period. I’ve been an active feminist since 1970. The Goddess is alive and she is returning. We do not want to create more hate. She is the Goddess of Love and Beauty and we need more beauty and Love in the world now. Women need to first right the wrongs. But we shouldn’t perpetuate fear and hatred. We need to create new balances and that’s why Venus is turning direct again in Libra.

Venus turns direct at 25 degrees Libra conjunct big beneficial Fixed stars 

SPICA at 23 degrees 50 minutes LIBRA tropical

Is a blue Giant Star in Constellation of Virgo. It is one of the most famous 15 Behenian Stars of ancient lore. This was the Goddess Ishtar or Ceres/Demeter. The Ear of Grain is a very good star. It brings spiritual qualities. and It gives riches, overcomes contentions. removes scarcity and mischief. Spica rules the stone emerald, sage, trefoil, mugwort, periwinkle and mandrake root.

When Venus conjuncts Spica in traditional star lore it means; “benefits from friends, social success, false friend of one’s own sex.{1} 

And ARCTURUS at 24 degrees 14 Libra Tropical 

in Alpha Bootes  {shake your Bootes} it is a famous spiritual star. It gives riches, honour, high renown, and self-determination. Its image is a horse, wolf or man dancing. This star deals with darker aspects. Arcturus has a reputation of achieving justice through power. Arcturus was seen as the protector of Spica or Ishtar be the ancient Arabs. It is associated with the stone jasper, and plantain.

When Venus is conjunct Arcturus it indicates popularity and gifts and favours from friends and some false friends of the same sex. {1} 

Arcturus rules two inches below the navel in the human body which is the Hara or will centre or 3rd chakra. It would be wise to hold your hand’s open in a yoni symbol around this area and meditate and breathe into and through your hara. 

Do you have planets in the Via Combusta?

As with all retrogrades do not buy things especially things related to Venus- all women’s or feminine things, makeup clothes, shoes, art, and avoid socializing.

This will be a very interesting Halloween as Venus will transition from Scorpio to Libra on that day. October 8 is a Libra NEW Moon @ 15 DEGREES right on the beginning of that Via Combusta.

Venus Rules the Taurus Full Moon and is conjunct the Sun on it too

The Scorpio New Moon is November 7 with Venus in Libra and Jupiter on the 29th degree of Scorpio – more on that later.

These lunations will be extremely powerful 3 in a row.  will write more about that later.

Justice for women.Libra Sun trine Mars in Aquarius

It’s earthy grounded Taurus time but we’re in for a wild ride today

Moon is on a raucous course today conjunct Uranus- the Cosmic Whoopee cushion planet.

Moon Trines SATURN putting the Capricorn’s on top on top.

The Olde Patriarchy has its ruling planet sending benefits for senators and corporate heads today. you know what that means.

Moon inconjuncts the Sun in Libra

You may be feeling left out, or not holding the bag, or robbed of your inner goodies. 

Don’t sweat the small stuff.

Moon squares MARS in AQUARIUS 

the challenge is to be different and do different, step out of your safety bubble.

LIBRA SUN TRINES MARS IN AQUARIUS

JUSTICE FOR WOMEN

Yes Taurus, this is a preview of the next 7 years. Take a chance, Be free,  do something completely different.

yes of course this mirrors the Supreme Court Kavanaugh issue.

Relationships can be crazy making today as URANUS brings change, chaos, unexpected interruptions, Left turns, and big thinking for freedoms. A revolution is about to begin as Women demand equal rights. Expand your views on relationships. You may be attracted to some far-out people. Let your hair down. Let your freak flag fly Ferdinand. 

The energy is higher consciousness, the big picture, groupthink. the internet revolution. Venus rules Libra women will be taking to social media to broadcast the revolution.

Taurus Moon opposes VENUS in SCORPIO

There some secret cabals going on. Women need t make their physical presence felt through how they spend. Taurus and Venus rules finances, spending. The Almighty buck is the controlling Moloch power. Women can change the way the world works through not buying anything that doesn’t support a female-focused, earth-honouring energy. That’s a big-ticket energy. 

Moon inconjuncts Mercury in Libra 

There will be debating and flip-flops in communications. Emotionally on edge and precariously hard to keep a balance. Remember to stay grounded and breathe.

Saturn in Sagittarius, horse sense reality Astrology

Saturn enters Sagittarius Sept. 17 2015 until December 20, 2017, that’s a two-year reality shift.

I can hear the applause at 7:49 pm PST/ 10:49 pm PST/ as Saturn FINALLY leaves Scorpio for the next 28+ years.  Yes its been a huge emotional karmic soul wrenching slog and for some it has brought real results. Saturn is the Get Real planet.

Yes REALITY is getting some horse sense and going the way of Centaur hipsters. Get your riding chaps out and dust off your cowboy boots. Are you ready for a very honest serious adventure? 

Tarot Sagittarius Tara Greene

Sagittarius/centaur image by Bobbe Bessold 1980

Saturn is serious business,the Old Boys network, the Patriarchy. Saturn is Cosmic cop, the Law. Sagittarius, the 9th sign and last fire sign is also concerned with laws, ethics, justice. Saturn is very restricting, and conservative and there may be some major backpedaling in Higher Courts. 

Saturn and Pluto are NOT in mutual -reception with Saturn in Sagittarius,meaning that certain Plutocrats and their cronies who thought hey controlled the laws, state, etc. have lost some power and their nobless oblige. This is a good thing. Saturn in Sagittarius ethics will turn them in now.

As Saturn enters Sagittarius, Saturn is the guest in JUPITER’s house/sign.  Jupiter  in Virgo-2016  squares Sagittarius testing Sagittarians to walk their talk and embody their aspirations. Jupiter also governs Pisces traditionally so JUPITER is the BIG DISPOSITER this year, ruling both of these mutable sign.  The two just opposed each other Sept 16/17.  Which is also a nice harmonic send off  to Saturn into Sag. A Bon Voyage. A good omen. Sagittarius loves omens, divination, oracles, augury.

Jupiter in Virgo, a Feminine earth sign is debilitated opposite Pisces.  Jupiter must learn to be comfortable on earth, to be humble, to not throw too many thunderbolts at the earth. To learn from the Goddess and try to settle down for a bit and be her mate. 

SAGITTARIUS will reap some very grounding rewards with Jupiter in Virgo although it wont be so easy with that square. Writing, publishing, organizing, de-cluttering. Getting their hoofs clean.  PISCES especially gets the reality check BIG TIME this year and into 2017. Are you ready to come down to ground your sensitive souls Pisces? Saturn will teach you about boundaries that’s for sure.

SATURN in SAGITTARIUS

Saturn was last in Sagittarius from 1985-1988 and if you were born then Congrats!  you will experience your 1st Saturn Return, a time of full maturity as adults. A time of testing and obstacles. Those born in 1956- March 57 will experience their second Saturn Return in 2015 becoming elders, wise and ready to teach the younger generations.

Saturn is FATHER TIME, conservative, Karma, testing, restrictions. The builder, cosmic cop, head of karma, seniors, depression, corporate structure.

Saturn rules long term plans, archaeology, abandoned places, the bones, death, enemies open or closed, frozen places, engineers, mines, real estate, Capricorn and Aquarius traditionally, sobriety, careers, fathers, senators, the Patriarchy and lead, the densest metal. 

Saturn in Sag. will make those Colonialists, who have overrun other indigenous cultures- the White Race- pay. The Canadian Government under British rule seriously abused the Indigenous Populations. The Catholics also need to pay back the millions of people they converted to Catholisim and torchered and destroyed. In China too.

SAGITTARIUS is the SAGE. The Centaur half human and half instinctive horse sense. The wise teacher of hidden mysteries, philosophies, religion, politics, inspiration. The International jet setter, gypsy, hipster. Sagittarians love to be in the know and drop names like crazy.  Sagittarius is fiery, spontaneous, good-humored, optimistic, hypocritical, judgmental, loves animals, adventure, a risk taker. Naïve, easy-going. ALWAYS tells the truth much to their own detriment.

If you can’t take the truth better go to another planet for the next two years.

SATURN IN SAGITTARIUS WILL BRING

restlessness. adventure, risk-taking, easy going fashion. comfort first.

Not more conservative Bible thumpers! GIVE ME THAT OLD TYME RELIGION and conversely throw out that old tyme religion. Saturn will be more restrictive in Sag. for some and also a higher intrinsic knowing of what spirituality is for others.   Ancient manuscripts and archeological discoveries will be made which proves that advanced cultures existed hundreds of thousands of years ago. This will reverse many fundamentalists beliefs about taking the Bible literally as the word of god. We will also discover our E.T. heritage. Yes the long awaited star ancestors will reappear.

RELIGIOUS FANATICS ABOUND.

Sagittarius loves to preach. There will be religious wars. Yes the Crusades all over again. Muslim
extremists vs the rest of the free world. ISIL is a reality and growing. People will be willing to die for their beliefs. There will be very stiff laws in Europe and the rest of the world either separating refugees because they are needing to integrate into Western liberal lifestyles. Sagittarius is a Universal sign, we must all have the same philosophy and aim our arrows in One direction- GALACTIC CENTER.  
There is no organized religion there. We are all STAR PEOPLE.

 Gandhi had Saturn in Sagittarius as did Che Guevera. It may be tough as Saturn TESTS the media, the laws, ethics ut ultimately this will be a good purify test of validity.

Sagittarius seeking mystical connections.Nostradamus one of the most famous visionaries was a Sagittarius as was William Blake. People will be taking their mystic spiritual visions very seriously. 

Elder teachers will be sought out as well as more traditional spiritual and esoteric training.

Gay Marriage, Astrology State of the Union, Tara Greene

The history making Supreme Court decision to make Gay marriage legal in the United States June 26 2015 is  symbolic of the outer transpersonal planets shifting long-held beliefs about homosexuality. That is an Aquarius ideal ruled by the Planet Uranus.

Gay Marriage Legal in U.S. June 26 2015 with Natal Chart if America

Transiting Pluto is Retrograde now, back to 14 degrees of Capricorn now and it has hammered the U.S. Sun in Cancer and the U.S. Natal Saturn in Libra.  Pluto will Retrograde back to 12 degrees 58 minutes in September and aspect the U.S. Sun twice exactly in the next few months. PLUTO is control, power, secrets, money and sexuality and the U.S. SUN is its ego and identity. Uranus and Pluto created the 60’s sex drugs and rock and roll revolution and now they are continuing to make the U.S. and the world change, transform and rebirth itself. Pluto is also squaring the U.S. Natal Saturn which is its staunch conservative, Bible Thumping Patriarchal side. Saturn is in Libra in the U.S. birth chart though the Scales of Justice. Justice is Blind.  

Neptune planet of Oneness, Source, compassion and spirituality has also been also helping the cause as it has squared the U.S. Natal Uranus in Gemini. Uranus in Gemini is right on the U.S. Descendant on July 4,1776 this is how America interacts with the world and it is on the traditional House of Marriage, the 7th. The U.S. is a revolutionary country, it should stand for Liberty for All. Gemini is the twins, duality and androgyny. Neptune has been slowly dissolving any separation between the sexes. We are all One in spirit. 

Uranus in Aries the planet of Revolution and freedom at 20 degrees is also exactly conjunct to the U.S. Chiron, freeing up old wounds. This also points out the pain that the U.S. is going through and will continue to go through as a result of the Supreme Court’s decision and it also symbolizes this whole old Confederacy in the South. A Civil War could happen. I predicted this a couple of years ago. 

CHIRON, the wounded healer at 21 degrees Pisces is  exactly Square to the U.S. Mars in GEMINI, which is dual sexed, which is natally square to the U.S. NEPTUNE in VIRGO.  There is a gaping wound but also a spiritual healing going on in the split between the haves and the have-nots. Virgo is the sign of servants traditionally, interesting that the whole Confederacy thing is opening up an old wound now isn’t it? 

Uranus is also coming up to square the Natal U.S. Mercury Retrograde in Cancer  yes there may be repeals. Transiting Uranus is also inconjunct to Natal Neptune in Virgo. Neptune in Virgo is the practical dream, the everyday dream of the people. So everyone should be able to live their dream. 

Saturn at the 29th degree of Scorpio is squaring the U.S. Natal Moon at 27 degrees Aquarius. Saturn is the law, karma, justice for the People as the Moon symbolizes. Moon in Aquarius is all about freedom and equality. The old guard as symbolized by Saturn are freaking out as the natural law is change, freedom, revolution. The old guard is dying a hard death. 

Venus planet of Love and Jupiter planet of the law, and expansion are also involved here. They are in the U.S. 8th, Scorpio house which deals with sex, power, transformation. Let the marriage celebrations begin.

transiting EROS God of Love is also exactly conjunct to the U.S. Jupiter at 5 degrees of Cancer and the U.S. Venus at 3 degrees Cancer. Expansion of love.

Mars at the cardinal zero degrees of Cancer is also a trigger for U.S. Natal Venus. 

Mercury at 11 degree Gemini was also on the U.S. Descendant opposite its Ascendant at 12 degrees Sagittarius. The announcement has a big impact on the world and much discussion will still ensue. There are many conservative right wingers who will be very upset. 

The Gay Pride week is on in Toronto now. This will be a huge parade this year celebrating this decision.

I haven’t looked at the U.S. transits in a while so it is interesting to see just how much of a conflab will ensue. 

Jupiter will enter Virgo in the fall and Saturn will enter Sagittarius in September and the Jupiter Neptune opposition will happen first. The law versus the dream, will be the reality.
