Lovers in strange times

August 19 The Libra Moon which always seeks balance, is opposite Uranus

expect changes, chaos, the urge to unhinge from relationships.

Venus trines Uranus Aug 19  and then quincunx’s Chiron in Pisces

Moon is in Libra until the 20th is Venus territory

Venus Retrograde trine Uranus

relationships may suddenly and very unexpectedly stop and go in a completely different direction!

expect the unexpected. Women don’t want to be tied down or caged. They want freedom.

Peoples values are changing big time.

Lots of out of the box  activities are recommended. Uranus in Aries is spontaneous. No hum drum for you, quirky sex. Be original. 

Do things differently. Set yourself free. See things from a higher perspective.

My internet was down yesterday due to a loose cable at home base here. 

we had a nice quiet 19th anniversary. 

Inspirational Daily Card 

King of wands tarot Tara Greene

 King of Wands Margarete Petersen Tarot 

This unusual and beautiful Tarot Court card has the King of Wands as a shaman with a drum on it. The King of Wands is the Fire of Fire. Usually the sign of Sagittarius. Many decks interchange the Knight and the King, the Knight would be Leo as  a Younger fire.The King of Wands is focussed on the highest goals, spiritual ones, passionate ones..  

The shaman’s drum is the heartbeat which leads one into a trance journey during a soul retrieval, a shamanic journey or power animal journey. It is the heartbeat of our mother which was the first sound every person hears in the womb.

Shaman's drum Tara Greene spiritual retreats

Shaman’s Drum Tara Greene my own handmade and painted drum is so precious to me

My shaman’s drum, handmade and hand painted myself.

I use this drum in guided meditations and soul journeys.

Each symbol was chanelled and relates to the 8 points on the Medicine Wheel. 

That beat takes us back to our oldest unconscious memories, a vast storehouse of archetypal jewels of wisdom and truth, riddles and answers.

Listen to the rhythm of your own heartbeat during a meditation. Trust the pulsing of the blood in your veins as it keeps the rhythms of your own heart. 

The King is a great wise leader and Shaman. He is a sage. Trust the experience you have so far of following your instincts no matter how scary it is. There is truth in your own heart, flows through you.

Inspirational daily card, love times two

Moon enters Aquarius April 12 @ 1:44 pm EDT- April 14

Aquarius Moon time carries our emotions onto a higher consciousness level. It allows us to have detachment and perspective in our feelings and to organize our lives. Working together for the group good, sound management and inventiveness is the feeling-tone. This energy brings emotional flashes of inspiration, a realization that hits you like lightning and the ability to scientifically examine the whole picture.  

nice ‘n easy day. 

Moon TRINE VENUS in Gemini

This promises light-hearted very heady, happy inventive communications,and a somewhat rad unexpected departure and a surplus of lovers in your life. Love the one you’re with.

Moon sextile Saturn 

…and it may be more serious than you expected. 

Inspirational Daily Card 

2 of wands

2 of wands Tarot Tara Greene

 Initiatory Golden Dawn Tarot

The two of wands balances out the initiating Ace. Now there are two points of view, conversation, communication, dialogues, choice and balance. The two’s relate to the Symbol of the #2 Arcana The High Priestess and  are androgynous.  

WANDS represent the element of Fire

The Fire element is synonymous with spirit, initiating, primal energy,  masculine, inspiration, passion, desire, igniting, creativity, ambition, expansion, determination. 

Wands show us the spiritual invisible drive at the core of our beings. We are all essentially spiritual beings. Fire is life, the animating spark, the Sun, God.

Two of wands can be seen as competitive or co-operative. The choice is always there in every situation. 

Just wanted to mention that a synchronicity of two’s followed. Thanks Matthew for the Doors suggestion.

Love me two times- The Doors 

R.I.P. Ray Manzarek, the end,Astrology of a rock legend

I was sad to hear that co-founder,organist and bass player of the Doors Ray Manzarek passed on May 20.

I was a huge Doors fan and got to see them perform live when they first released Light my Fire in a small C.B.C. Toronto studio in 1967 with a maybe a hundred people or so in the audience. I also saw them play two more times and met them twice backstage. I have  a nice photo of Ray which I will scan and post.

Ray’s signature organ music, he played bass and lead, certainly is the mainstay of the Doors sound. Jim was the writer and leader, but the two really coalesce the powerful Doors music sound. Of course John Densmore and Robby Kreiger also made the entire group what it was.

Ray Manzarek was an AQUARIAN born February 12 1939 Chicago Illinois 3:30 am.

The Doors Astrology Tara Greene

click on chart to view larger

Ray had the SUN in the 2nd house of resources conjunct his Mercury-planet of communications. He was an age of Aquarius kind of guy. An innovator, a genius, worked well in groups and a great organizer.

MOON in SAGITTARIUS at 6 degrees is conjunct Mars at 8 degrees in his 12th house. This is  a very spiritual placement.  Ray’s was a fiery emotional and spiritually driven man. His drive {Mars} was to awaken and inspire people. His Music was honest, inspiring, philosophical, all-encompassing.

SAGITTARIUS ASCENDANT 24 degrees

Close to the Galactic Center. This placement makes people visionaries because they are really tuned into a HIGHER REALITY and vibration. They are metaphysicians of one sort or another. Touring, travelling and seeing new places was something  Ray must have loved. I am certian he was very well read.

 VENUS his artistic talents was at 6 degrees CAPRICORN in the 1st  house of self.

He loved to work, he was ambitious for success and a practical disciplined hard worker.  Serious reliable and responsible. He was probably the rock of the doors. Jim was the flagrant leader and wild man poster boy poet. Ray always wore suits in true Capricorn style. He was also a serious film student, meeting  Jim Morrison at UCLA film school.

Ray had JUPITER at 9 degrees Pisces also in the 2nd house of resources. Jupiter is the traditional ruler of  PISCES and SAGITTARIUS. Pisces is the sign of all artists, musicians, creatives. His musical resource was SPIRIT itself. May have been some addictions issues there as well. Playing the organ, an instrument usually reserved for churches also shows the religious nature of his art.

SATURN at 14 degrees ARIESs at the bottom of his chart on the IC.

Ray ws serious about doing his own thing.  His dad must have had a strong influence on him. He had great energy and initiative and a unique communications style. He was meant to be an entrepreneur and the King of his own domain.

PLUTO at the 29th Critical degree of CANCER he was born at the end of the Cancer Pluto generation. He was emotionally intense and loyal, Protective of his friends and family and his privacy.

NEPTUNE in the 9th house is in VIRGO at 22 degrees Retro.

Neptune is the highest elevated planet and shows him as a creative/musical teacher, film maker, philosopher, globe-trotter, eclectic in his approach. A  mystical man,a dreamer, a romantic, a work aholic, a perfectionist who honed his craft to the Nth degree.

URANUS is at 14 degrees TAURUS in his 5th house of creativity

Uranus rules his Aquarius SUN & Mercury. The signature of an original pioneering person, who walked their own path. The 5th house is the house of creative self-expression as a gift of Love.

Ray’s NORTH NODE was at 12 degrees of SCORPIO in the 10th house.

A SCORPIO north Node says that Ray’s highest goal was to be an agent of deep emotional change, rebirth, transformation. Death, the shadow, the deep dark secrets, taboo’s, was part of his worldly fame. His music was the accompaniment for Jim Morrison’s deep dark sexy poetry/songs. Ray’s playing was an integral part of the musical depths to which the Door’s took its listener’s. It was dark, taboo, THE END. 

AT his DEATH

Ray died of bile cancer in Germany. He was private about his struggle with Cancer. He left his wife of 45 years, a son and three grandchildren. The recent SOLAR ECLIPSE of May 9 was at 19 degrees TAURUS and fell in a square- hard aspect between his Mercury and SUN. Solar eclipses change the nature of a person’s Identity. The Uranus- Pluto square also fell 2 degrees from his SATURN close to his IC. Endings, roots.  NEPTUNE at 5 degrees PISCES was squaring his MOON in the 12th house. A beautiful return call home to spirit.

Thanks for contributing so much to American POP music. YOu are an icon. You will always be remembered.

Let’s talk about two timing love,VENUS in Gemini Astrology advice from Tara Greene

 VENUS gets up of her her homey cowhide Taurus couch and skips into light hearted super chatty GEMINI on April 3 to stay for four months!

Which is very long to a Gemini and especially long as Venus usually only dallies for 3-4 weeks with any one lover.

There’s something specific about this extended Gemini love affair.   VENUS, one of the stars of 2012 wants us to learn from the ANGEL/DEVIL  that is pure GEMINI.  Venus exploring our TWIN natures, there’s  lots to explore in the nature of DUALITY.

 Venus in Gemini wants the best of both worlds. She wants her cake and to eat it too.

Venus in Gemini expands the-do I want it?/don’t I want it? dichotomy. It’s called ambivalence. 

VENUS in GEMINI song: Let’s talk {and talk} about Love. 

Gemini’s are often labelled ADD, as their brains are going so fast, they naturally  get very easily distracted,

so here’s a video to watch.  Bonnie Raitt sings, Do I have to repeat it? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z04r_tlWdRs

 Venus in Gemini is a love affair with the imagination, It is sexy chatty engagement with both lobes of the brain. 

The Air element sign is mentally expansive; everything you can image is possible. Thoughts do create our reality, so be very careful what your conscious and unconscious mind is thinking.  

Gemini Keywords:   Flirty,  Curiosity, Fast mover, fast thinking, ultra chatty, detached, ambiguous, Two-timer, Peter Pan, naïve, irresponsible, detached, trickster, travelling salesman, footloose, You add  your own……. 

Each sign represents an Archetype. I the Tarot the sign of GEMINI is associated with… wait for it.

Gemini The Lovers Trump # 6

                                                  THE  LOVERS

Here are two, of course different versions of the LOVERS  a Major Arcana Trumps. The Card on the left is a modern deck based on the Sufi poet RUMI the 13 Century Persian poet who wrote 30,000 mystical love poems during  a short life.  I have this deck, it is very romantic and beautiful.

The one on the right is from the Crowley Thoth Tarot the one I always use.You can see the attribute of the sigil of Gemini on it. The Twins.

When I first started to study the tarot seriously about 22 years ago. The connection of Gemini to the Lovers drove me crazy, I couldn’t get it. From studying Astrology I knew Gemini as the most immature, ambiguous, curious, detached sign of all. Not what I would think of associated with the qualities of Love.  Libra would be the sign I would first associate with love and marriage. I won’t go into all the correspondences of the Tarot and the Tree of Life, the Kabbalah etc.  suffice it to say the Lovers is #6 which is Tifferet in Hebrew at the center of the Tree of Life.

the Lovers and Gemini are about Choice, duality. The opposites, masculine and feminine, yin and yang, up down, Heaven and Hell, Good and Evil, right and wrong, us and them,Light and Dark  etc.

Gemini symbolizes consciousness itself, and our dual natured brains. VENUS in GEMINI loves to learn  and for the next four months the focus is learning lessons in LOVE.

another song:Lessons in Love by Level 42  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gt7mtdLha-c

So there will be a lot of quick changing love affairs, mucho yakkety yakking, comparison shopping, and definitely a surfeit of being unable to choose one thing over the other.

The answer: TRY EVERYTHING….
