Unconventional truth astrology

An upbeat optimistic fiery SAGITTARIUS day today. It’s a Holiday in the U.S. today-President’s day. Does Donald feel he should be treated extra royally today I wonder?

planetary movement in space Tara Greene

Two fire trines today have already happened. Were you dreaming you were roaming, running, in the wilds? 

Two sextiles today from SAGE MOON to Mercury in AQUARIUS and JUPITER in LIBRA.

There will be lots of political talk about refugees, foreigners, international trade and politics. There will be unconventional solutions bandied about. You will be slayed by Super Truth hot Sagittarius energy up on their soap boxes preaching about blowing things up; depleted Uranium usage in Syria by the U.S. and diplomatic relationships between Russia and the U.S. 

The planets are stitched together very tightly. 

Moon squares CHIRON in PISCES still around NOON in EST

You may just want to go hide. 

A sobering serious political note strikes later in the afternoon as MOON conjuncts SATURN

Be careful what you say as every word has karmic consequences. Seriously. 

MERCURY in AQUARIUS SEXTILES URANUS and ERIS in ARIES 

Mercury in Aquarius is revolutionary, inventive, pioneering minds and all inclusive. Uranus and ERIS are trouble shooters and troublemakers.  on Presidents day in the U.S. I am sure you will see many protests against Trump. This energy will create marches against whatever is traditional. This could be right or left-wing factions.

On a more personal level its a good day for putting on your thinking cap to make changes in organizing things, and rebooting anywhere you have been stuck.

The Moon enters Capricorn late in the day in PST.

PREVIEWS it’s a HUGE Week coming up.

We are feeling the energy building now up to the Solar Eclipse in Pisces on the 26th.

Mars in ARIES squares PLUTO on the 22nd reigniting  the CARDINAL CROSSES

Mars CONJUNCTS URANUS on eclipse day.

This is another big evolutionary injection into unknown chaotic territory.

Are you ready to take the plunge off the cliff?

In effect, the world is being drawn into the archetype of THE FOOL.

LAUGHING FOOL Tara Greene

The Fool = ZERO

The Fool lives totally in the moment and adjusts to whatever comes up.

Mercury Retrograde, Magic thinking

I think I lost a day today already as Mercury stations turning Retrograde in Gemini where it is at its most powerful.

MERCURY turns Retrograde from 13 degrees Gemini @ 6:48 pm PDT/ 9:48 pm EDT and May 19 @ 1:48 am GMT back to 4 degrees on June 11th. 

Do mark where those degrees are in your natal chart. The Retrograde affects everyone differently event though it affects all of us. check which houses and aspects too.

The Presciption is: Don’t start, launch, buy, sell, or initiate anything during this time period unless it is unavoidable.

But Mercury Retrograde especially in Gemini can be very useful for breaking down old ways of thinking, and communications breakdowns which are a good thing. Things must break down to grow.

“Turn off your mind relax and float downstream” in the immortal words of John Lennon. Stop fearing Mercury Retrogrades.

The Moon is in Gemini May 18th, one of the pair of signs that Mercury rules, the other is Virgo highlighting this Super Mercury Retro. where we are deconstructing mind games.

It begins as a  sobering Mercury Retrograde as Moon opposes Saturn Retrograde in Sagittarius.

Review long-term educational, travel, writing, publishing and of course communications.

Moon conjuncts Mars so this is a hyper chatty, flirtatious, high energy but serious Retro.

You may also be feeling very wired and angtsy, Mars heightens the split personality energy.  Use it for selling, marketing, and meeting new people or clients who could turn out to be long-term clients/friends/lovers.

Moon squares Neptune a few minutes after the Retro. to make you feel lost at sea  without a GPS- be careful of liquids and computers and phones during this time period. Do tap into your dreams during the Mercury Retrograde.

Mercury is the TRICKSTER archetype, connected to coyote wisdom, the Fool, the sacred jester.

Watch your mind, become the watcher.

MEDITATE daily during the Retrograde

 Watch how the ego/mind plays tricks on itself. 

Mercury is The MAGICIAN in the Tarot.

These two archetypes the Fool= zero and the Magician emanate from the 1st Sephirot in the Tarot called Kether,  they represent the initial emanations from the Godhead.

Note the Mercury record label.  The Fool #0 & #22

This 60’s album has the masculine/feminine balance.                                    The Magician #1 in the Tarot

Hermes is Mercury’s name to the Greeks, he is the messenger God. Hermes/Mercury carried a magic wand called a Caduceus given to him by Apollo the Sun God. The Caduceus is a staff with two intertwining snakes on it topped by two wings. This magic rod is a symbol of the spinal column, the central conduit for Kundalini energy. The snakes cross on the chakras. The twin snakes represent complementary halves of the nervous system which Mercury rules. Snakes have since time immemorial symbolized wisdom, psychic powers, women’s menstrual cycles, the process of change, life and death, healing, the brain, our wiring.

Mercury is also a hermaphrodite. This issue of gender bending and transexuals is very much a Mercurial topic.

Mercury is duality in all of its aspects, yin/yang, polarity, balance. Normally  we largely operate in logical masculine analytical, Virgo left brain thinking. During Mercury Retrograde the intuitive, Feminine right-brained thinking is what gets turned on.

All planets during their Retrograde phases visit the Underworld, our unconscious to rest and renew. The God and Goddess also need to rest and renew..

As with all Retrogrades do all the Re things, relax, rewind, review, recalculate, etc etc. Rx the symbol of retrograde phase is the same as a Pharmacy. It is always Good Medicine.

HOW TO GET THROUGH IT WITH POISE

Do back up all computers, as information is likely to be lost, tampered with, misplaced, screwed up, and computer viruses run rampant during Mercury Retrogrades. As Mercury is in his own sign I predict this Retro could be a hair-puller but can be very good.

The symbol of Mercury Retrograding close to the New Moon symbolizes that we wipe the slate clean of old stale ideas, outworn attitudes, ways of communicating and mental images of your own identity and the world which need Re-energizing.. It is definitely time to change your mind and keep the change, a title of an old NLP book.

Do be careful about losing, dropping or damaging your cell phone or computer. Double and triple check everything use that Virgo influence to nit-pick over everything during the Retrograde.

Tomorrow Never Knows- The Beatles 

2/22 Numerology, Magic, Alchemy Meditation

Feb 22 has a very special significance in numerology as well as for me personally. It was on February 22, in 1979 that I had one of the most amazing and magical experiences of my life. It was a dramatic metaphysical and physically real experience. I had two people with me who experienced it as well. An ex  of mine and a woman from Germany who I didn’t really know. She was a follower of Bhagwan Rajneesh, later known as OSHO. She had a spiritual name Gila and two children. She was on her way to visit the famous seer in Oaxaca, Mexico Maria Sabina, who Alejandro Jadorowsky’s shamanic teacher. I am fortunate that I  had two other witnesses. We verified that we’d all seen the same thing. I have had other people interpret this story as an E.T. experience. 

I wrote about this experience on my website http://www.taratarot.com/id153.html

I also made a video in 2012 about the meaning of the numbers.

http://youtu.be/JPwXgsTIcEk

The Master Numbers 11:11 are also part of these teaching, remembering and knowing sequence of symbols. Do you see 11:11 or 2:22, 3:33, 4:44 or 5:55?

Just noticed I have 11,211 followers. Thanks

Numbers have significance. in the Kabalah everything that exist is reduced to numbers which are symbols. It is like mathematics being the underlying structure of the Universe.

The STAR BIRD is also an archetypal image is the Alchemical bird, the Phoenix,

Use the Numerology energy to Meditate

Please do sit and meditate on the meaning of the energy of the star Bird, Master number #22.

Ask yourself where do I come from?  What is my Highest purpose?

Sit and imagine that you already know who you are. Ask for a vision, message or sign. 

ask for a dream. Wait and see what occurs. Please share. We all have this knowledge within us.

It is more about removing the obstacles to clear seeing, and knowing.

In the Tarot cards, #22 = Zero which is the Fool.

The Fool symbolizes the end and the beginning of the soul’s journey which the Tarot sequence depicts. The Fool symbolized enlightenment.  According to the teachings of the Buddha, we are already enlightened, we only need to remember who we are and where we came from.

Feeling Surreal, time dilations by Tara Greene

Things are feeling somewhat SUrrEAL today. 

Napoleon Brousseau painting surreal

Mr. Bitumen oil painting by Napoleon Brousseau

72 H x 48 W x 2 in

The Moon is still in roaringly purring DRAMATIC LEO.

Time seems to be moving very slowly.  You know that thing when time dilates ?

Stuart Wilde used to call that phenomena FAT TIME.  

It usually happens because we are  totally absorbed in what we are doing. That time expansion is the wise energy of THE FOOL in the TAROT. Also known as Enlightenment.  Living fully foolingly foolishly by being totally in the NOW, like a child allows us to live in the present moment, the all present, trusting and open.  We need to do more of this these days. 

INSPIRATIONAL CARD OF THE DAY

Robin Williams, daemons the gift and the tragedy

I stayed up very late last night as I felt I needed to look at Robin William’s astrology chart and get that out. I realized I missed a few things so I will continue and refer back to that.

Yes the entire world is in shock and still mourning. Earlier today graphic details about Robin’s suicide by hanging were broadcast leaving many responding with indignation and anger. I am continuing to send prayers to Robin’s wife and three children. We seem to be united in our loss and deeply grateful to Robin for his amazing gifts and talents which brought so much joy to millions of lives.

Film director Chris Colombus said this of Robin “His performances were unlike anything any of us had ever seen, they came from some spiritual and otherworldly place. He truly was one of the few people who deserved the title of ‘genius.’

Everyone is rewatching Robin’s films. His career ran the gamut from side-splitting never out of date comedy to serious drama. In Robin’s career and life we see the twin sides of Comedy and Tragedy mirroring each other.

Comedy Tragedy Greek masks

TRAGEDY COMEDY MASKS of Theatre

a entire list of Robins film and Tv credits totals 102 – see link below

Robin was a legendary comedian, serious actor, humanitarian and father. Yes as tragic as his suicide is, it is also a wake up call of the amount of grief those struggling with major depression and  addictions deal with every day until they cannot fight back and sink into the black depths and are driven to end their own lives.  I just realized perhaps Robin was also taking some sort of awful type of anti-depressant like Zoloft or Paxil which actually makes people feel more suicidal as it only masks the root cause.

Serious capable help for those feeling the least bit suicidal and withdrawn should be free, accessible and easy to get. Williams was very open about having life time depressions, his addictions to cocaine and alcohol which he had conquered and for which he sought help in rehab just a few months ago.

It doesnt matter how successful, wealthy, talented or applauded one is if one has depression, addictions and mood disorders one will always be battling their own demons.

The demons are daemon’s, yes like Matt Daemon’s name, I love the name destiny and synchronicity. In ancient Greece the daemon, according to James Hillman was also a Guardian Angel. The deamon bestows the gift but also contains a dark side.   Someone of Robin Williams’s dazzling talents, especially performing comedy, needing to be ON, with a seeming multiple personality those highs also come with equal lows.

Why are people surprised at this?  We all have our own individual dark sides, it counterbalances the light. But when the dark overshadows then we are in trouble. For every star that rises one falls.

Those who live large public lives- stars, musicians, artists, comedians  also counterbalance that OUT THERE personality with deep insecurity. It is the rare person who leads a healthy psychologically balanced stable life in this position what with the archetypal nature of the larger than life fame, wealth, power and status which come from receiving such gifts they have bestowed upon them.

Actors and comedians hide behind their roles. Apparently Robin had been a shell of himself recently. He didnt even sleep in the same bed with his wife apparently on the night before he ended his life. Robin was such a great actor that he apparently hid the level of his depressions even from those closest to him. Not to blame anyone.

We all wish Robin were still alive. He gave us so much, we are addicted to his energy, to how he made us laugh, to  that beautiful soulful very real and humble smile. Stories about his selfless gifts are coming out as he never publicized them. He was  a real mensch.

He had just finished a number of films as recently as the end of July. Another Night at the Museum with Ben Stiller will be out before this years end.

Hindsight is 20 20.

As mentioned in my delineation of Robin’s natal chart that he was under tremendous pressure this year from the GRAND CARDINAL CROSS and if I was his astrology consultant I would have made him go to rehab and stay there knowing the devastating effects these planets would be having on him, plus Saturn in his 12th plus Neptune.

I have plenty of clients who are ordinary people who are also experiencing devastating losses financially and emotionally from being under similar GCC energies in their own lives who are feeling like they want to end it, that they see no positive future anymore. I check on them,pray for them and make sure they get the proper help.

Out of this great tragedy and loss is a WaKE  up  call. Many people struggle with depression, it is an epidemic. We need to look at our entire culture which fosters this split in our psyches, in our lives, from all directions, the impossibly high standards which one is supposed to achieve and maintain. The narcissistic ego dominance. The superficiality, the need to hide ones true self and feelings of insecurity and vulnerability which are simply part of being human.

James Hillman wrote about this in a marvellous book which is really a lengthy interview called  “We’ve had 100 years of Psychotherapy and the world’s getting worse.”  Hillman blames society on every level for creating this split in the human psyche. He applauds AA and champions local community support to enhance individuals sense of wellness and belonging. And for people to point that finger at the society we live on and not blame the victim.

Robins astrology transits

Robin had his Moon and North Node conjunct in PISCES in the 4th house. The 4th house represents the roots of ones childhood and ones  life at it’s end. Neptune the  planet which rules Pisces spirituality, delusions, illusion. addictions escapism, Bliss, is sitting very close to Robin’s Moon and North Node. Indicating that Robin wanted to go HOME, to Heaven where he began.

My message from ROBIN ON THE OTHER SIDE

I do medium work. I have been tracking him and I see that Robin is watching his heart is beaming with joy. He is free of his pain now. He asks us to forgive him for the grief and suffering he has caused  his wife and children and everyone in the world who he knows completely feels genuine love and grief for him and how he suffered in desperation. Suicide hotlines have been broadcasting themselves more because of this.  “Please forgive me and take strength from the joy and laughter I brought you. I love you.”

But there for the Grace of God go I. I know some of us would have been willing to take the bullet in exchange for Robin’s life. We are all part of Robin Williams. We all experience the joys and suffering behind the masks we where. Robin Williams was one of the greatest Fool;s ever. In the Tarot the Fool is the enlightened one, the eternal child.  I keep crying about this great loss of one human who lived an archetypal life which  we are all partaking in.

There but for Fortune – Joan Baez  

Inspirational Card of the Day, THE FOOL of enlightenment

June 10 Card of the DAY –

MAJOR TRUMP ZERO /22

THE FOOL Tarot  TAra Greene Tarot

RUMI TAROT 

“Be foolish, that your heart may be at peace.”

OKay I missed a day of daily cards here I admit it,so I am the fool. I haven’t tried to fool you at all.

I think it’s better to make a fresh start. So what better way than turning up THE FOOL? YAY!

THE FOOL-the very first symbol in the TAROT  is Zero, the card has a name but really no number, he is naught,  eternity.

but also he is the ending as well, as #22 Major Trump.

The Fool is the Soul itself, childlike trust, innocence, always learning, seeking, curious, open.

The FOOL -Lives totally in the present moment, no past no future,

THE FOOL  is the embodiment and symbol of ENLIGHTENMENT itself,

no agendas, no conscious mind chatter, no ego,  nothing left to lose,everything to gain,

Has done everything already, so what’s to fear? Nothing, no fear.

THE FOOL is traditionally shown wearing a jester’s or  raggedy clothes, a young man with a little dog- the instincts- nipping at his heels,

carrying a small pack and a staff. sometime’s a flower. He is carefree. 

The Fool is the shadow of the KING. King’s used to employee jester’s to sit at the side of the throne. They are two sides of the same coin. The Fool is the real knowledge but in disguise, the King is the ego, and apparent control. The jester keeps the King’s ego in check. Power can come and go very quickly, better to be humble.

Being the Fool unbinds energy, instincts, the wisdom of the superconscious.

The FOOL is timelessness- stopping the world as Don Juan the Yaqui shaman who taught Carlos Castenada.

The Fool always symbolizes a brand new beginning, a new birth, a fresh start.

The first time one has a Tarot reading one is considered to be embodying or initiated by The FOOL. The Fool can unlock you from your own prison.

MEANING

All is new. Forget any agendas or shoulds. Trust your instincts, live moment to moment, Who cares what anyone else thinks? Be true to yourself,let go of the past. Drop your ego and see the miraculous world you are in. Laugh at yourself. Free yourself from your own prison. Opportunity is everywhere.Everything is creative energy, look at things in an entirely new way. Trust, have no fear. You are an eternal child. PLAY, have fun.
