How do we get through these last 6 days of the Retro which began on October 5th five weeks ago. I know it feels like a few lifetimes ago.  Many people have gone through so many breakups its crazy. Everyone has reconsidered their relationships and their values.  Its a huge time of cleansing and clearing with Chiron at the last degrees of PISCES

2018 will be remembered as the Retrograde Year I am sure.

And as a cruel twist of fate Mercury turns retrograde 14 hours later on the same day!

that means we only get 14 hours of breathing time before we’re plunged into another Retrograde. 

Mercury goes Retrograde Nov.16 @ 5:33 pm PST/ 8:33 pm EDT/Nov.17 @1:33 am GMT

from  13+ degrees Sagittarius one degree away from The Great Attractor. Hint Hint. An excellent time to write down your optimum intentions with Mercury in Sagittarius as planets are the most powerful as the station and change direction,

Mercury is RETROGRADE until December 6 at 27 degrees Scorpio on a New Moon.

Back into deep Scorpio territory again.

Just giving you the heads up now.

Meanwhile  November 10 is relatively easy.

SAGGY MOON sextiles Venus in Libra and MARS in AQUARIUS

you can feel optimistic about those breakups and see the bigger picture.

Moon squares Chiron in Pisces 

OK there will be some pain and vulnerability there too. That’s normal. Feel your feels.

This adds further to the optimistic attitude of the best is yet to come out there if you keep your mind and heart open.

Lucky Jupiter in Sagittarius 2018-2019

Hooray for all Sagittarius peeps your BIG year begins Thursday, November 8 @ 4:38 am PST/7:38 am EST/ 12:38 pm GMT.- December 3, 2019

Sagittarius, Astrology, Art by Napoleon Brousseau

Sagittarius the centaur, is hald horse, half human. It is a wild instinctive sign needing space to run free.

Thursday is the day if Jupiter, Thor’s Day in Nordic Myth. Jupiter is Thor, Yahweh, Zeus, the Thunderbird all thunder and lightning Gods. 

“Hallelujah, come on get Happy.” – says Jupiter. This only happens on average every 12 years so start enjoying already.

the Color Purple is Jupiter’s color, His metal is Tin.

Stones: Lapiz Lazuli, Smoky Topaz, Turquoise, Tourmaline, goldstone

OILS: Cinnamon, clove, Frankincense, Laurel, Myrhh,

HERBS: Sage, Anise,Hysopp, Juniper,Lamb’s Ears, Licorice root, Linden, Lobelia, Magnolia, Milk Thistle, Mint, Mullein, Wormwood, Nutmeg, Oak trees,Olive Trees, Pau D’Arco, Pecans, peppermint,

The 9th sign is ruled by the Big winded planet JUPITER aka  Zeus in Greek mythology/ JOVE in Roman and the root of the word jovial meaning good-humored.

Sag. is the most mature of the three Fire signs and the root of the word SAGE. Sagittarius symbol is the Centaur,  half horse,-half human. It is a wild instinctive sign needing space to run free. Sagittarius is an active, mutable adaptable sign. 

Time to celebrate for Sagittarius and all fire signs who benefit from the Fire element.  Any planets that you have in Sagittarius will, of course, get the big Fertile expansive Boost especially to your Moon in Sagittarius, Ascendant, Venus or Mars in Sag.

in the Tarot Sagittarius is symbolized by the #14 Card Temperance. In the Thoth Tarot, this is known as ART/ Alchemy or ‘the Sacred Marriage” card. In the Court Cards Sag is the King or Knight of Wands.

Virgo and Pisces get the square push from Jupiter to expand their horizons.

Gemini gets the Jupiter opposition and Gemini is all about the oppositions. Jupiter can make them even more over the top as its nature is expansion.

Aquarius and Libra get sextiles a nice easy aspect from Sagittarius. 

Taurus and Cancer get the inconjunct from Jupiter which may make you resist the growth process. This can indicate financial and family problems. 

Jupiter will expand everything: optimism, traveling, including refugees, legal issues, judges, courts, higher education, being honest, casual fashion, sports, teachers, yoga, religion, veterinarians, animal rights activists, horses, long-distance relationships and the need to go to exotic places on a Vision Quest or do ayahuasca or some other arcane exotic little known trendy thing. Sagittarians like to be “in the know.”

This can adversely affect refugees as laws will be put into place to limit refugees in most places in the world.

Jupiter is also a sign of faith and religion. Many bible thumpers and preachers are strongly Sagittarius. Also the sign of mystics and philosophers. Pursuing mystical meaning and wondering in awe at the stars is very Sage. 

Jupiter rules international trade and airplanes. There may be an increase in plane accidents and hijacking of planes. Although Trump has put sanctions and taxes on foreign trade the rest of the world will be trading more enthusiastically with each other.

Check out where Sagittarius is in your Natal CHart to see where and how by aspect Jupiter will benefit you.

The downside of Jupiter: weight gain on the hips and thighs. Too much of a good thing is not good. Too much honest, too naive, too trusting, too klutzy, too easy going, taking people and things for granted, Too earnest, too judgemental, exaggerating things too much, too hypocritical, too much procrastinating, promising more than you can deliver. 

The Moon enters Sagittarius and conjuncts Jupiter at the end of the day.

A quadruple Sagittarius day!

We are off to an optimistic start with the Moon in Sagittarius 

The GODDESS of SAGITTARIUS is DIANA the Huntress. To the Greeks, she was Artemis, the Goddess of the hunt. She was always seen hunting in the woods with her dogs and she is also the archetype in Women Who Run With The Wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estes. 

If you are 12, 24, 36, 48 60 or 72, or 84 you will experience your Jupiter return during those years.

Weekend astrology awkward relationship issues

Venus is back in Libra, her home sign, at the 28th degree, with 13 days to go till she turns STATIONARY November 16 @ 25 degrees 15 minutes of LIBRA. She will begin to move Direct two days later. The 16 and 17 are very potent days. Mark them on your calendar  I will be leading a Workshop at the Grail Springs Spa in that weekend to coincide with Venus’s stationary point. 

Moon is in earthy humble focussed getting the mundane and meticulous detailed work done, sign of Virgo.

The earth Tine of Yesterday continues as Moon also trines Pluto.  Didn’t you feel better on Friday under the Grand earth Trine? I certainly did.

the inconvient truth about today’s planetary alignments

Venus inconjuncts Chiron in Pisces

love hurts, relationships are akward. You may not know WTF to feel.

Stay with your feelings. The current Venus Uranus opposition squaring the Nodes is adding to the feeling of impactfulness at this time.

Chiron in Pisces sextiles Juno 

Juno is the Goddess of marriage and partnerships, Chiron the wounded healer shows us that to be in a relationship is to do profound spiritual healing.  Be careful that you don’t unconsciously wound your beloved.

Virgo moon also inconjuncts MARS in AQUARIUS

the relationship snafu continues to tighten

Moon opposes Chiron in Pisces in the evening

Don’t try to analyze your feelings. Or be a workaholic just trying to stay busy to avoid feeling vulnerable.

Venus in the Heart of the Sun Cazimi

Cosmic Intelligence Agency image Venus Pentagram

Venus Pentagram Venus Retrograde Star point

October 26 @ 7;16 am PDT/ 10:16 am EDT and 2:16 pm GMT Venus is at the very heart of the SUN, called Cazimi.  If we think of Venus the Goddess of Love and Beauty symbolizes the heart itself then Venus in Scorpio symbolizes the shadow heart being purified in the Light of the heart of the Sun.

This day and point mark the inception of the Phoenix cycle where Venus is consumed in the flames. This alchemical point is a cauterizing, a burning away, a melting down,a fiery process of alchemy of dying into the Sun’s light and therefore absorbing the gift of Light and Gold that is the Sun preparing for a rebirth.

With Venus Retrograde in Scorpio, this is the point in the Dark Night of the Soul when all hope is lost, when the ego is totally destroyed and surrenders, let’s go and gives itself up to death. As the cosmic Myth of Inanna the oldest known poem It is at this very moment of touching our own mortality that rebirth and transcendence begins. 

The spark of light in the dark is the ember from which all is created is rekindled.

The last time Venus was Cazimi in the heart of the sun was during her last venus point on June 6, 2016, note the 6/6/16 significance. 

The Sun and Venus join every 9.5 months which is the length of a human gestation cycle. The Sun and Venus move from one conjunction, inferior to the next superior and so on. A constantly forming cycle creates a Pentagram shape. T Every second time the sun and Venus meet they create the beautiful pattern on Love. In 8 years the whole cycle is complete. And Venus creates a rose pattern in this cycle as well.

The Heart, the rose, and the pentagram are impressive enough cosmic symbols but Venus is also linked to the ratios of Sacred geometry the Golden Mean and the Fibonacci Sequence.

On the Tail of a Taurus Full Moon ruled by Venus which is Retrograde, this auspicious date October 26 is considered to be highly fortunate as Venus is considered to be on the Throne of The King. This makes her a Queen, a Sovereign in her own right. Venus can influence and work magic now in ways she never can. She is wearing an invisibility cloak, we cannot see her in the Light of the Sun but we know in our hearts that she is there. If you witnessed Venus in her rare crossing in front of the sun on June 2012 you will remember how powerful this was. 

At 3 degrees Scorpio you will want to circle where that degree is in your Natal chart. This is a point of New Beginnings, love rising from the ashes and the shadows. After deep psychological excavation we are given the promise of new life. It is like a variation on the Eleusinian mysteries.

A lot of this Scorpio rebirth energy is about deep self-love. I feel this energy myself and it seems to be what the world needs now Love.Venus in Scorpio is and will continue to be a very deep dark soulful journey of dismembering our egos like Inanna in the descent. Venus turns Stationary on November 16th but Venus will not bypass her retrograde degree until December 18. Venus remains in Scorpio until January7/8 2019. Venus entered Scorpio on September 9. Returns to Libra on Halloween and remains in her home sign until  December 2nd.

Spend the next few days with Venus at the heart of the sun basking in the light. feeling the warm and tenderness of the heart after the chill dark night of the Soul spent forlorn in excruciating pain, crying and wailing from loneliness from feeling abandoned and desperate. This is the point where our hearts and souls have warmed anew, where we feel that we have faith that there is indeed light and love everlasting burning from within our hearts and souls.

Venus at the heart of the sun also reminds me of Woman of the Apocalypse

The Woman Clothed with the Sun and the moon under her feet and upon her head a crown of twelve stars. She is pregnant and about to give birth. Chapter 12 of Revelations written in AD 95.

Sit proud on your throne of Golden Light. You are sovereign a Queen. Light the way of the heart for all to follow.

sending you blessings during these great times.

Pluto turns Direct September 30

Pluto is stationary turning Direct September 30 @ 7:03 pm PDT/ 10:03 pm EDT/ October 1 @ 2:03 am GMT

Pluto will begin to inch forwards in about 4 to 5 days.

todays astrology Tara Greene

What has been hidden held back while Putos has been Retrograde since April 22, 2018, will slowly bubble up like toxic swamp gas. 

Pluto rules the Collective Unconscious and if you think the big sexual secrets, such as – paedophilia by the Catholic church and all the recent support for the millions of women who have been sexually abused for aeons coming out now is a bid deal- that is just the tip of Hades iceberg. My old teacher Stuart Wilde used to say that Hell is freezing cold like people who are unfeeling and love is warm hot and fuzzy. right?

The polarity that we are seeing is also being created and used and promoted by the NWO. While I do not agree with sexism, misogyny, racism and Ku Klux Klan white supremacy at all. The equal and opposite and just as restrictive hate is to blame all Republicans for being sexist racist and wanting to wipe them off the map as I’ve seen a prominent person do on Instagram is just fascist too. 

We need to be smarter than that. It is so easy to manipulate people into knee-jerk responses. For me the good thing in all of this is to see the positive effects of this polarizing as millions of woman support each other by admitting in public their sexual abuse and releasing their personal and the collective shame and naming the sexist culture which has created it. 

The Moon is in Gemini today making another trine to Mercury in Libra 

more hot debates going on.

MOON is VOID OF COURSE FROM 11:38 AM EST all day 

a great sunday for chilling.

Moon enters CANCER October 1 @ 2:00 pm EST

Blaming or scapegoating the other is not healthy. Freedom of speech is what democracy is built on. Everyone needs to be allowed to express their views without being threatened. Yes there is no room for hate speech from either side.  But in my world the entire Christian Bible is one big hate speech against women. 

If we are evolving let’s take this to a higher level of consciousness. Things are extreme as new worlds begin. These old Senators and Saturn ruled historical old boys are at the end of their power and they are trying to hang on by the skin of their teeth but they are still the ones who have the power. That is why the revolution is happening at any moment. 

Revolutions aren’t usually pretty or bloodless, The big danger is this kind of fomentation and emotional chaos sets everyone up for a police state. One way or the other everyone can lose all their power to the corporate Gods.  That is the very darkest side of Pluto in Capricorn and remember Saturn is also in Capricorn now heading for a meeting with Pluto. Jupiter will also be in Capricorn and note  December 26, 2019, with a Solar Eclipse at 4 degrees Capricorn conjunct Jupiter.

There is a fated date of January 12, 2020 with Jupiter in Capricorn conjunct the South Node in Capricorn. 

Also note April 5, 2020, when a New Jupiter-Pluto- The Billionaire’s transit occurs at 24 Capricorn conjunct the South Node of Pluto @ 23 degrees Capricorn. There is a second conjunction on June 30, 2020. 

NOte: November 13 2020, the final Jupiter- Pluto conjunction at 22 degrees Capricorn conjunct Saturn!

On December 21 2020 Winter Solstice a new 20-year cycle begins with a Jupiter Saturn conjunction at zero degrees AQUARIUS. This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius? 

Be very aware and listen to your still inner voice beyond all the cacophony. That’s the perfect word for now. Watch out for the caca bad who is the real phony?

Hekate, the Witches Goddess

Quote

Hekate, Witches, Magic, women, Astrology, Tara Greene

Glyptothek [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons User:Bibi Saint-Pol, own work, 2007-02-08

HEKATE is the Goddess of Magic, Witchcraft, the Night, the Moon, ghosts and necromancy.  She is a Triple Goddess and is associated with three-way crossroads which were traditional places to make offerings to Hekate, called Trivia. We now associate this Great Goddess with “Trivial Pursuits” and things that are not important. Such is the desecration to her name and honour.

She is usually shown as a woman holding two torches or as a three-bodied Triple Goddess facing past, present and future. Therefore she would be a strong divination Goddess with oracular or prophetic powers. 

""

She assisted Demeter/Ceres in her search for Persephone in Hades, guiding her through the night with flaming torches. Hekate is a bringer of Light and consciousness in the dark times. After the Mother and daughter reunion, Hekate became Persephone’s minister and companion in Hades.

She was the only child of the Titans Perses and Asteria-who rules the Stars and she received her powers over heaven, earth and the sea from them.She bestowed gifts of wealth, victory, wisdom and good luck to hunters and sailors on the earth and sea and brought prosperity to youth and to flocks of cattle. But she also withheld these gifts if mortals didn’t deserve them.  She was the only Titan to retain her powers under Zeus’s =the Patriarchy’s rule- and she was honored by all the Immortal gods and Goddesses. She is considered to be a Virgin- “whole unto herself, belonging to no man” Goddess and therefore capable of parthenogenesis if she chose to have a child. 

Other stories relate Hekate to Brimo, an underworld Goddess whose virginity was lost to Hermes/Mercury on the banks of Thessalian Lake Boibeis. Her most important cult centres were at Eleusis place of the famous Eleusinian mysteries and the Island of Samothrace where she was worshipped as a goddess of the Mysteries.

Hekate, from the Greek hekatos, means “worker from afar.” The masculine form of the name, Hekatos is also a name for Apollon or Apollo.  

Hekate was identified with a number of other goddesses including Artemis, Selene-the Moon, and many other nymphs including Maira- the Dog-Star or Sirius the brightest Star in the skies and the Star which the U.S. sun is associated with. The U.S. needs a three party system not two. 

Read more about Hekate’s origins: http://www.theoi.com/Khthonios/Hekate.html

As we go into the darkest season Hekate is our Queen and Guide.

She is indicated as Asteroid 100 and she is presently at 8 degrees VIRGO exactly Sextile to Venus in Scorpio at 8+ degrees. Hekate also stands beside Asteroid Goddess Pallas Athena at 10 degrees Virgo. 

Hekate and Venus in Sextile helps us to access really deep places in our sexuality and in our souls. If you feel you are in a place of choosing between three options or feel overwhelmed with choices call up Hekate to light your way. 

Go to a triple crossroads or create a symbolic three-way altar. Make a food offering to Hekate.  Call upon her to bring you insight and light the torches in the darkness or dark times for you. She is very powerful.
