Rare erotic encounters with the stars

Venus is now Returning to her Source, Her Light, her Lover, the SUN in conjunction in the SACRED MARRIAGE MARCH 25/26. In the Tarot, Venus is symbolized by the EMPRESS #3. But the image of her conjunction with the Sun reminds me of the Sun card itself. It’s a very new beginning in Aries a fiery love affair. 

THE SUN # 19 Sun Tarot Card, Tara Greene tarot card reader

This conjunction is a symbol of SOL mates, divine reunion, the wedding of the masculine and the Feminine to the source they return in union once more beyond duality. These are very good symbols for these strained and polarized seeming times.
It’s a COSMIC WEDDING, A big celebration.
Venus Sun conjunction Astrology Tara greene
Vessel of the Great Work by Jean-Julien Champagne, 1910.
With champagne, buy roses, give them to yourself or your lover, wear rose oil, burn rose incense. Wear something luxurious antique sensuous and beautiful. Look at old, quality blue chip art. Be the diva, lounge, act like the Empress. Eat apples, Venus’s fruit. Eat gold leaf, they use it in Indian sweets. Indulge in VENUSIAN SOLAR things. Celebrate your beloved within, Treat yourself and your beloved as if you are the most beautiful being in the Universe. Know you are loved and showered them in kisses. If you are solo and have the wedding bell blues then know you are always loved and kissed by the sun in the sky.
Venus turns Retrogrades about every 18 months, these Retrograde times connect over an eight-year repetitive cycle.   
You will want to think back and reflect on the last time that Venus was Retrograde in Aries. This happened on March 6 to April 17, 2009, and March 8 to April 19, 2001. It’s very likely that we will Repeat some lessons in love and deal with similar issues during the 2017 Venus Retro cycle as we did during these cycles in 2001 and 2009.
Venus is in detriment while she is in ARIES but when she Retrogrades back into Pisces on APRIL 2/3rd, she is in her Exaltation again.  The Divine Feminine, the Queen Bee, is going back into her hive in PISCES to get fed, nurtured, sourced and then marches out again into a brave new world when she re-enters ARIES to be an Amazon Warrioress/ Soldier of Love on April 28.
Venus had a very spectacular rare Retrograde crossing in front of the Sun in June 2012 in Tropical Gemini which won’t happen again until 125 years from that date. 
While VENUS is RETROGRADE It’s best not to start new relationships, buy new clothes, makeup, art, or invest. I know this will be hard for many of you Venus rules Taurus and Libra peeps especially. Save some money for a  change. 
WHERE VENUS CONJOINS the SUN at 5 degrees ARIES in Conjunction is the Alchemical G-Spot.

Also check out aspects, conjunctions, squares, oppositions, etc. the Ven-Sol makes. Remember that this marriage point affects the next 8 years. These are major lessons in love.
HOROSCOPES  Based on Sun sign Solar houses.


The Venus-SUN conjunction is in your 1st house of Self Identity which needs an overhaul, a review, a make-over. Who am I? What do I love? Who loves me? are the questions to ask. ‘Love Yourself” is the song I would play for you. Your inner and outer warrior/warrioress is being initiated by fire. This sparks up a new cycle for love and self-worth. Venus softens your Martial side and the Sun empowers the Martial side. Get a total make-over. 


The Conjunction with your ruling planet Venus occurs in your solar 12th house. This stimulates an unconscious desire for old loves, security, things, memories, dreams, new loves, new ways of making money, resources, and the urge to possess new art and beauty, and land, perhaps in the Southern hemisphere. A passion is brewing which may not be apparent until Venus reaches Taurus. Old lovers may return in the flesh at that time.


This happens in your solar 11th house. This sparks a love of reconnecting with a tribe or group of old friends, buddies, workers, school chums. Put together a runion. An old idea or invention may be retooled, polished up and may soon see the light of day. Re-organize all of our stuff. Traditionally the 11th is the wishes, hopes and dreams territory. Breathe new life and a new spark into them, they’re not done yet.


This marriage happens in your 10th House of career and worldly accomplishment not the house that you feel the strongest about for many of you. It signifies a need to come out into the world and do what you love to do. You want to nurture and nourish something. Public acclaim for a project you helped with can come now. A return to a job you miss is also a strong possibility. If you are thinking about getting married or pregnant this is a good positive energy to conceive under. 


The marriage of the SUN, your ruling planet with VENUS happens in your solar 9th house. Traveling to a place in the sun you loved is necessary. Re-education is also a strong quality. Re-immerse yourself in things you love, whatever that is. Speak your truth, using your leadership qualities for bringing justice for women and anyone you feel is being overpowered, would be very satisfying to your soul. Do something dramatic that you haven’t done in a long time. Take a class in improv. 


The love affair is in your 8th house of Transformation, sex, money, and power. These are things that normally don’t concern you. How is your sex life? If you have none, get your beauty, passion, sex toys, and orgasm lessons going. Indulge yourself. Re-organize your money, and put aside an account to reward yourself with. Get passionate about where you can act more powerfully in your career, community, and workplace. Eat something daring. Do something just for fun. Dance, sing in the rain. Dare to get messy. 


Your ruling planet is getting married in your 7th house of marriage. Reflect on your own marriage or significant lovers.  Old lovers may reignite a great love in your life. Old lovers may be toasted in this fire. Re-set your heart on new goals. This is also where you interact with the world. The Sun is “all about me baby.” Libra’s need to integrate a sense of themselves to find that longed for balance. Old projects, business allies, and friends may reappear. Reignite an old creative partnership or passion.


The sexy deed happens in your Solar 6th house of work, service, your health, community, pets and being accountable. Review whatever you haven’t completed. Retool your health regime, especially if you are having any menstrual related issues or STD’s. Herbal remedies and traditional homeopathic medicines would work wonders. How stressed have you been over your love life or lack thereof? Do you love your job? Your community? Are you involved or aware of it at all? Reflect on all these things during the Retro then you need to come out into the light and act.Use your power to help others.


The nuptials happen in your solar 5th house of Love affairs, children, creative self-expression and will power. Re-examine your old loves, read old journals. You need to play, it would be good to go somewhere sunny where you can simply feel good. Make time to re-create the creative, passionate person you once were. All creative endeavors are favored, dancing, writing, singing. Be more playful with your children. Recreate an old family pastime.Travel to a favorite place. What were you once totally passionate about it? It’s still there. Feel it, and will it. 


The reunion happens in your Solar 4th house. This is your most private, intimate house of self, your childhood home, your parents, especially your mother, your roots, ancestors, and history. Take a stroll down memory lane. Go visit aging parents or your childhood environment. Remember all the details and record them. What hidden loves and secrets have you never told anyone? Reunions with childhood friends and old lovers is highly likely.  Do you want to move? Light a fire under your self, and bring back the passion you had as a child. 


The reunion happens in your solar 3rd house of Communications, siblings and analysis. Do you feel there are some things that you wanted to say that never were put into words, written down or communicated? Now is the time. Make a list, reminisce. It’s ok to be sentimental. Are their family fences or breaks that you could mend? Brainstorm new ideas and inspirations for work. Reunions with old colleagues, and friends should be organized.


The sacred marriage happens in your 2nd Solar house of resources and tools. The 2nd house is related to earthy practical things. The Sol-Venus conjunction will empower you with a passion and a knowledge of source that you can integrate as a perpetual love flame in your heart chakra. Strength your commitment to your spiritual love journey. Burn away the old emotional ties where you have given your power away and been a martyr. You are a warrior for love and light as you once were.

Mars in Sagittarius Full Moon recall

May 21  Full Moon at 1+ degrees Sagittarius is conjunct MARS Retrograde at 1+ degrees.

This is one HOT HOT Full repressed angry Full Moon. Tempers will be flaring, as old issues that have been simmering on the back burner will burst into flame. Mars Retrograde’s repressed anger can only go on for so long. This Full Moon draws out the waters of the tides but also of the element of FIRE.

We can see the anger growing over the POLITICS of the election in the U.S.  Sagittarius rules the political arena, laws, foreigners and most importantly TELLING THE TRUTH. 

WHO IS TELLING THE TRUTH? Most people are not aware of the lies they have been drip fed from the moment they are born and  before that. The shit is about to hit the fan.

SAGITTARIUS always aims higher and Saturn in SAGITTARIUS is RETROGRADE and BERNIE SANDERS is basically Saturn the elder, wise philosophical teacher incarnate, who is FINALLY speaking the TRUTH. Bernie Sanders is aiming to take freedom higher, to expand the vision of the people and he is trusting and having faith and keeps humbly to the task of being of service to the collective. This is ambodying JUPITER the ruling planet of SAGITTARIUS in VIRGO and square to SATURN – exact May 26. 

This is an important aspect, the last of three JUPITER square SATURN  @ 14 degrees VIRGO/SAGITTARIUS.  Saturn is also conjunct to THE GREAT ATTRACTOR  a vast anomaly in space which curves time and allows us to see things from a totally different perspective. We have a unique convex space-time mirror with which to see the hidden agendas. Where are these degrees in your NATAL chart?

Jupiter is Faith and Saturn is reality. Jupiter laughs and Saturn is bitter. So together they balance each other out.   Where do you need be less critical, less perfectionist about sweating the details?  Saturn’s shows where you need to tighten up and be totally honest whowever hard that may be. Where do you need to be more grounded, realistic, honest and mature with your  ideals?The dreams need to have more flesh from both of these planets now. 

Their first square was August 3, 2015  at 28 LEO/ Scorpio- conjunct old Fixed star Regulus. 

their second square was March 23, 2016 @ 16 degrees VIRGO/SAGITTARIUS.

We need to think about where we were at  when they started this trinity of squares.  Balance your work and your play. Do pay attention to the details. 

THE GAP  between your dreams and the REALITY is super important.

Sagittarius’ shadow is hypocrisy. Do you lie to yourself? Do you promise things you can’t follow through on?Do you let others do that to you? 

It is the First of the Four Agreements of Toltec Shaman Don Ruiz

BE IMPECCABLE WITH YOUR WORD – Be faithful to your ideals. 

It is time to teach what you know, grow up take yourself seriously, the world is waiting for your knowledge. Or perhaps you need to go to school and start learning what your vision is so you can make it your work.  Follow your bliss and keep it real. 

 there is also a GRAND EARTH TRINE 

Pluto in Capricorn, Mercury in Taurus -turning DIRECT MAY 22nd @ 14 degrees TAURUS and JUPITER and the NORTH NODE at 13 and 18 degrees VIRGO respectively. 

This is a framework of pragmatic magic. A triangle of keeping it real.

The SUN is conjunct another hot flame and that is the Asteroid Goddess VESTA at 2 degrees GEMINI. Vesta keeps us focussed on our goals. We stay steady incorruptible, dedicated to keep that spark alive whatever that is for us. 

We are literally burning the candle at both ends. That is literally what it is, what it feels like and how it looks. Are you feeling that way? I have mentioned feeling the fatigue from Mars Retrograde. This aspect will breathe some fresh air into the flames. 

MARS is very bright in the sky and makes it closest pass called perihelion to the Earth on MAY 22. this is important in a real gravitational way too.

MARS is the warrior God when he lays down his arms when Retrograde he feels uncomfortable and insecure as he is used to being a warrior. His exact opposition to VESTA indicates that he is ready to be initiated by the Vestal Priestesses to heal his old warrior ways. He needs to be reborn, cleansed and loved by the Great Mother of his PTSD. This is partly mentioned in the Fisher King story.  The wounded warrior goes to Vesta’s Temple and honours the Goddess for his shame of spilling blood and killing at the Full Moon. Only a Sacred VESTAL Priestess who is menstruating can cleanse his soul from the profane bloodshed in war. By admitting his sin the Great Mother may forgive him as he repents, and the Mother’s love is the most powerful cleanser there is. The Vestal acts as the Goddess and in their sacred lovemaking, while she is veiled, anonymous, she shows him that her sacred menstrual blood of Life can cleanse and renew his soul.  As the warrior lets down his defences and allows himself to be human and vulnerable and awed by the beauty and power of the Goddess, and years to love and protect her more than his own life. then his tears open his heart so he can receive the Goddess love and can emerge cleansed, renewed and purified to return to ordinary life, loved unconditionally by the Vestals sacred Blood of Life. 

On the Full Moon, this is a time to recall those ancient ways. We can light and balance the spark of trust and faith. If you have been wounded or been the wounder it is time to meditate on going to Vesta’s sacred Temple with offerings to the Goddess. If your inner masculine is wounded you can ask for healing for that part of yourself. If you are a man and feel that you have abused women, or someone else or your own inner feminine intuition by only doing your duty, or passing the buck then you need healing at this time as well.

The old masculine warrior Patriarchal model can and must be healed and brought into balance now. We desperately need a whole, feeling-based Goddess honoring Masculine energy. Mars will enter Scorpio May 27th and we will go deeper into the Masculine’s soul wounds, 5,000 years of being split off from the mother, from living in fear. Mars will be Retrograde until June 29th and will stay in Scorpio until August 2nd.  

This is a time of a lot of tension.This full Moon in Sagittarius demands that we speak our truth and show our wounds in order to be healed and made whole once again.. 

Neptune is squaring Saturn at 11 degrees Pisces and so is the South Node.  We are releasing old martyrdom scripts, of being the long-suffering victim. We are leaving unhealthy spiritual fantasies and projections behind and learning to know that it is in real life that real change and real dreams happen and can grown to bring substance and sustenance.
