Three sexy moves and an earth trine

I want to thank all of you who commented to my query yesterday.

Mercury is in Virgo and we are under a Scorpio Moon so what did I have to do today for hours and hours?  I was literally out of storage space on Google drive. I had to delete- DEATH- 10,000 e-mails a Virgo /Mercury thing of course. I gained 1 Gig of space. It felt good. I feel lighter. 

Virgo is the clean up sign. I admit I am messy and I keep papers and track of old emails obviously. I have thousands more e-mails to delete in fact.  I figure if I spent an hour a day at it eventually it would be all cleaned up. Along with my office which is being moved to another floor, and my website being finished its redesign. Also  starting a new habit of deleting that verbiage every day. 

August 10 Moon in Scorpio makes 3 SEXTiles- very nice and easy erotic ones.
1. to Mercury in VIRGO, earthy lover, it’s got to add up.
2. Pluto in Capricorn- power, corporate ideals and control issues,
3. Jupiter in VIRGO- why don’t we do it in the road? but neatly. 

Rich Powerful Earth Trine  @ the 15th degree

MERCURY TRINES PLUTO

Mercury wears that groovy winged hat and sandals and Pluto has an invisibility cloak. An interesting image.  Mercury in Virgo is very smart and intellectual. Pluto brings wealth and power. He supplies riches for those who listen to their souls. This is a good aspect and beneficial for all TARURUS’s out there too. Check out where that middle 15th degree is in your natal chart,in the three earth signs.

TO DO: Think about what your greatest soul gifts are and how you can manifest them through  ideas, communications and business to benefit the world. 

EARLY MERCURY RETROGRADE ALERT!

Remember also that the Messenger is moving slower and slower everyday now getting ready to turn RETROGRADE and enters his shadow phase today August 10 at 14 degrees 50 minutes of VIRGO. So get ready for the BIG Mercury Retrograde August 30 until September 21st right before EQUINOX.

Eclipse season coming up: SEPTEMBER 1 SOLAR ECLIPSE a 9 degrees VIRGO will be very intense.  VERY.  The shift really hits the fan as SUN and MOON are opposite NEPTUNE and conjunct to the Nodes of course and squares by MARS and SATURN conjunct at the 9/11 degrees and their opposition point.  I will also prep a pre-eclipse breakdown teleconference too. 

I am preparing to do a teleconference. Who’s on board?

SEPTEMBER 16 Lunar ECLIPSE @ 24 PISCES is an entirely different kettle of fish. 

REMEMBER JUPITER enters LIBRA SEPTEMBER 9th. 

The difficult polarity will even out as Jupiter enters LIBRA. Somewhat. 

It will be quite a roller coaster in September.  Think back on where you were in September 1997. This was a very special time for me as I was pregnant with my second child and only daughter Leah. I am prepared to conceive and be pregnant and give birth again now.  I bless our daughter and love her so much, she makes me so happy. I love hanging out with her. 

Are you pregnant with possibilities too? What are they?

Scorpio time of the month

Scorpio Moon, Tara Greene Astrology

Yes it’s Scorpio time of the month and its not just women’s periods. Our monthly Lunar voyage through Scorpio is always an intensely emotional, sexual and secretive time. The Scorpionic dark, stinging, power-hungry, vampirish, goth-y, obsessions arguments and control issues comes up from the unconscious Scorpio depths. Our instinctive impulses come out. We are prone to be more primal and raw emotionally.

As the most sexual sign we feel  our lust and our desire natures more instinctively. Our laser like ability to read others motivations is at its highest under the 8th signs moon. Detective work is strongest and easiest.

Scorpio rules finances, money, circulation highs and lows. Scorpio moon time is the time to reflect on death, dissolution, transformation. The best time to end, give away, cut those karmic attachments every month this month is July 12-15.

 July 13 Moon trines NEPTUNE in the afternoon and you may find yourself dreaming away.

Scorpio/ Pisces dreams are erotic, dark, Goth, sexual, intense.

Let your imagination run wild, iTs healthy. Beware of falling for dark sexy strangers.

MERCURY keeping step with VENUS enters LEO  July 13-30 @ 5:47 pm PDT /8:47 pm EDT

Mercury in LEO adds another planet in FIXED elements besides Venus and Mars. The SCORPIO moon is also fixed mode as is LEO, SCORPIO, AQUARIUS and TAURUS. When the Sun enters LEO on the 22nd that adds evn more immovable stubborn energies to the mix at the end of this month..

Mercury in LEO brings our heads and hearts together.  The Buddhists see the heart as the centre of the body, the mind is the O.S.  While Mercury is in Leo, we have the power to rule from our hearts.  Draw down your mental focus and consciousness into your heart chakra.You can use rose quartz to help you focus into your heart. It is especially good for that.

Rose Quartz, heart chakra Tara Greene

Wearing it is good or just holding a piece in your hand. Breathe and feel and sense what is right according to what the heart says.  When someone asks you what do  you think? Point to your heart.

MARS INCONJUNCTS URANUS in ARIES

This may feel very uncomfortable, a power tripping backlash stubborn impulsive energy stand off. Butting heads gets one nowhere. Uranus wants fresh,new, forward looking solutions. Get innovative and pro-active.  

SCORPIO MOON sextiles PLUTO PDT/ July 14 EDT

Now here a sexy couple of bedfellows.  Book that sexy date, plan to stay in. Do whatever turns you on. Plan a plot to get the goods. Read detective novels, Bury some long past overdue boy/girlfriend once and for all.

2016, the Unicorn, Magic spirit animal guide,

I was meditating this morning when I woke up. I have asked for more clarity into 2016. 

I had seen this sword like the Ace of swords and the Lady of the Lake appear already. This is a variation on Saturn in Sagittarius centaur aiming its arrows at the Galactic Center.

I cottoned onto the Hermit as a #9 year, literally. Also the Sage which is the origin of the word Sagittarius.

This morning I saw the Unicorn in a vision.

Unicorn, spirit animal 2016 Tara Greene

I knew that felt right.. I have always had an affinity for unicorns. The traditional tapestry The Hunt of the Unicorn from the 1500’s is at the Cloisters in New York. I saw it years ago and it was breathtaking. When I lived in the country in Virginia years ago I saw a triangular-shaped fence which is what holds unicorns and I used to see one captured there. 

~Unicorns have long been a representation of the Moon, the mysterious, intuitive, magick found within the unicorn. There are at least eight mentions of the unicorn in the Old Testament, 

The original tale of the unicorn was that of the Goddess which was later overlaid as the Virgin Mary who trapped a unicorn, whereupon the unicorn became tame and lay its head in her lap.

As the legend grew through reinterpretation, the unicorn was viewed as the Christ or Incarnation and the death of a unicorn as the Passion of Christ. This allowed a pagan symbol to become highly esteemed within the church. In fact, a grouping or herd of unicorns is called a “blessing” of unicorns. The horn, resembling that of a narwhals, presumably had curative powers that allowed the unicorn to detoxify water. This is an important meaning for 2016. 

Unicorns are also prominent in heraldic symbolism, usually with a spiral horn, sometimes of red and black. In heraldry, unicorns are often shown with a collar and a broken chain, indicating that they have freed themselves from bondage and cannot be taken again.

The unicorn is both a masculine phallic symbol and a feminine symbol of the moon a symbol of alchemy and temperance.

The magical powers of unicorns are also legendary. Unicorn horns are said to be harder than diamonds and to be able to neutralize poisons. Unicorn tears can heal both physical wounds and sorrows of the heart.

A person with the ability to see a unicorn may have a wish granted as a reward. Unicorns are often reputed to have the ability to fly. Some unicorns are believed to be able to speak to all kinds of other creatures.

In modern literature, the lure and mystery of unicorns remains. In the recent Harry Potterseries by J.K. Rowlings, powerful wands are made with a core of unicorn hair. The blood of a unicorn is also reputed to keep a person alive even if he is very close to death. The ongoing body of literature associated with unicorns and the powers attributed to them will undoubtedly continue to add to their value as symbols of freedom, healing and beauty.

Call upon the Unicorn to visit you in your dreams and in your meditations. 

Let me know if you see one.

The Lady and the Unicorn by John Renbourn https://youtu.be/TrPgm8OE6pY?list=RDTrPgm8OE6pY

2016, the Hermit year, seeking wisdom

2016 is a Universal # 9 year.  2+ 0+ 1+ 6 = 9.

Nine is a magic number, no matter how many times it is multiplied it will always reduce to itself. 

The number nine symbolizes completion, fulfillment, attainment, beginning and end, perfection,

3 x 3, a Triple Triad, a Feminine number, there are nine months of human gestation. 

#9 is an incorruptible number. It’s a celestial and Angelic number. There are nine muses.  

In Chinese symbolism:  it signifies Celestial power, It also signifies the 8 sacred directions in Feng-shui with the center as the ninth point as in the Hall of Light. 

#9 symbolizes Pure Intelligence in the Kabbalah. It reproduces itself when multiplies. It is like a hologram. 

In Hinduism: The number of Agni God of Fire. The square of the nine forms, and the mandala of 81 squares leads to, and encloses the Universe.

Scandinavian Mythology  Odin/ Woden hung for nine days and nights on the World Tree, Yggdrasil to win the secrets of wisdom for mankind. {Odin is also the Hanged Man Trump #12 in the Tarot}.

Celtic: A central number of 8 directions and the ninth being the center. Three triple Goddesses. 

Pythagorean: the Limit of numbers, all others existing and revolving within it. 

Tibetan Buddhist and Catholic rosaries or malas all contain 108 beads, 9 x 12. 

In the Tarot the Trump #9 is The Hermit

2016 the Hermit, Tara Greene

The Hermit, THOTH Tarot 

The Hermit’s symbol, traditionally features an old bearded wise man  in profile, a Sage holding up a lamp in the dark. The Hermit’s association to Virgo suggests that the LIGHT of wisdom is to be found in our bodies, in our guts, on the material plane, which is Virgo’s element. 

What is a Hermit? Like the crab, who retreats into its own shell, a Hermit needs to be alone, to seek spiritual wisdom which can only come from listening to one’s Higher Self. A Hermit is someone who surrenders to the call of Spirit, {Pisces} the opposite sign to Virgo. Hermits need to gives up their worldly possessions, symbols of ego attachment in order to be unencumbered for the inner  journey, symbolized as a cave, seeking spiritual enlightenment to feel complete. This it the highest archetype to embody during 2016.

The Hermit is a very powerful Archetype in all the worlds’ major religions. Moses, the Buddha, Jesus and Mohammed all had solitary Vision Quests, some in caves, when they became enlightened.

To embody The Hermit’s energies this year, we will absolutely need to have a regular  spiritual discipline. Daily mindful meditations are recommended. Yoga is good as a spiritual path first, a physical path second. Being in nature and tending to natures preservation is also a way to embody the Hermit Energy. Focussing on the body as a sacred Temple of the Soul is also a very important component. You are what you eat. Eating consciously as a spiritual path will also be in vogue. No more selfies, humility is the name of the game. 

In the Kabbalah the #9 is the 9th Sephirah,called Yesod, meaning Foundation. The Hermit is related to the Path of Yod the first and last letter of G*d’s ineffable name. It symbolizes the point of origin of our manifest universe in direct contact with the Divine Source of all Light. It symbolizes the Astral Light,Akashic fluids or Kundalini energy, the storehouse of images. It’s related to the Moon and the Pineal gland.  It’s attributes are incense and the demarcation of sacred ground in ritual.

The Hermit seeks to follow spirit by being in service to others.  

Virgo is associate with:  Work, service, perfection, healing, health, discipline, accountability, intelligence, the body,  grassroots community, budgets, digestion, natural foods, small domestic pets and animals, the Army, chemists, Pharmaceuticals, craftsmen, dairies, gardens, herbs, illness, mathematics,nutrition,  poultry, psychiatrists, Red Cross, charities. 

PLACES:  Assyria/Syria, Baghdad, Basel, Switzerland, Brazil, Boston,the Congo, Croatia, Greece,Jerusalem, Los Angeles, Lyon,France, Moscow, Russia and Turkey.

NOTE: Jupiter is transiting Virgo for the first eight months of 2016 and expands all of these Virgo areas.

An earth sign, Virgo is the Virgin Goddess who governs the harvest. She is like Ceres/Demeter. The Harvest is also a symbol of karma as in what you sow so shall you reap. What we are reaping is what we have sown.  2016 is a year of focussing on the earth, the environment, preserving, healing and serving Mother Earth. We seeing many world-wide organizations rally to help heal the environment now that we realize what damage mass consumer culture and the gluttony and addiction to  cheap fossil fuels has done to the earth. 

Virgo governs workaholism. The mood will shift to working more efficiently and wholistically. The need to be more focussed on being in more natural seasonal work schedule is coming. People are seeing their lives eaten up by the Internet and will need time in nature to be balanced and healthy. 

MONSANTO and GMO foods will be a major issue in 2016 as Virgo is the Harvest. Monsanto is trying to rule the world by controlling Food production, literally the harvest. By making death seeds,  which cannot reproduce naturally Monsanto and the other conglomerates control who will eat and who will starve. Eating GMO foods disrupts the body’s natural digestion. The body was not designed to eat tomatoes with fish genes in them or GMO’d pasta which is causing much of the gluten intolerance, and I believe is also linked to autism.  Virgo/the Hermit is intelligent and can connect the dots. Virgo is Ruled by Mercury, symbol of communication and consciousness. The mind/body connection  will be seen as so common sense and self evident. People will Get it. 

Many people will choose to give up their jobs and worldly possession to simplify their lives, work less, and live on less in this year. 2016 will be a year of budget cuts, belt-tightening and accountability. The market is set to crash. Those who know how to thrive with less will do the best. 

Yes for VIRGO peeps it is their BIG YEAR in so many ways. Virgo is a mutable sign and with Saturn in Sagittarius and Neptune in Pisces, there is a Trinity of Mutability. This bring huge benefits, in the practical and spiritual worlds, much adaptability and tests. 

The Symbol of the Virgin Goddess is also a sign of the DIVINE FEMININE becoming stronger and more manifest in the world and in the culture. Virgin originally meant “whole and complete unto herself, belonging to no man.” She was originally parthenogenic, reproducing herself without a male. This is the original Goddess and woman as a free, independent, intelligent, strong, benevolent, loving, and nurturing being. Her attributes of renewal are also a very strong symbol that Nature can be renewed using natural means. The herbs which the earth provides are the best. Using non-toxic remedies to heal will be the mode of choice.  

Nature/Mother Earth/ The Virgin Goddess/ the # 9, are all symbols of hope and renewal and being like a Virgin, innocent, open, trusting, purified and healed. A return to Innocence. I feel this will be a very positive year, very different in tone from the last three years of Cardinal energies.

We are bringing to a conclusion what we began in 2007, the last #9 cycle, 9 years ago.  2017 will begin a brand new cycle. 

We will be drinking Love Potion #9 when we don’t feel like being all alone. I never thought I’d be saying that Madonna’s first hit “Like a Virgin” would also be the Anthem of 2016 but it fits perfectly.
