Cecil the Lion, Regulus, Leo, cosmic living

The world-wide coverage and outrage over the horrible murder of Cecil the Lion in Zimbabwe by Minnesota dentist Walter Palmer who cruelly lured the protected lion, shot him with arrows and injuring him instead of killing him. The poor regal King of beasts suffered for 40 hours until he was found. Palmer shot him with a rifle, beheaded and skinned him and took his body parts for a Trophy. Cecil did not die in vain, no. He has taken one for the team, he is actually the Lion acting as the sacrificial lamb. Rudolph Steiner, the great mystic wrote a lot about the Solar Lion.

Everything is symbolic and we are living in heightened archetypal awareness.  

Venus Turned Retrograde exactly on the Fixed Star Regulus at Zero degrees of the VIRGO the “do Right” Goddess  and what happens down below? 

The “Fixed Star” Regulus, in the Constellation of LEO is the only star on the Ecliptic, the celestial equator. Regulus has huge import. Worshipped by the Ancient Egyptians, the Sphinx combines the Woman’s head with the Lion’s body and was built to honor the Age of Leo.  Everything in the ancient world was based on Astronomy which was also Astrology back then, they were the same science. The Age of Leo was circa 2,160 x 6 = 12,960- 10,800 years ago when the Sphinx was built. Modern Archeologists refuse to admit the obvious truth. We are now on the cusp of the Age of Aquarius. It takes  25,920 years for the “Fixed Stars’ to make one complete Galactic Year and have one big cosmic birthday.

REGULUS, the “heart of the Lion”, aka Archangel Raphael entered Tropical VIRGO, the Sign of the Virgin Goddess of the earth, Ceres/Demeter, officially on November 28, 2011 for the first time in 2,00 years. It is the start of an entire New Era. We haven’t entered the Age of Aquarius yet, but we know we are officially at the start of the VIRGO era in TROPICAL Astrology. This is exactly what we need in order to survive. The Goddess is indeed returning. I heard her call 30 years ago. 

In Greek Mythology Leo is the Nemean Lion which Heracles must slay in his 12 labors {Zodiac Signs} who becomes the Lion in the Constellation. 

LEO is ruled by the Sun and we are in Leo times. Leo rules the Pituitary gland in the middle of the head, ruled by the 6th chakra. The gland controls both logical and emotional aspects of the personality. Leo is the EGO on a diminished level and the Light of the Soul in its highest expression of the heart. Leo symbolizes courage, creativity and the innocence of the child. 

In the TAROT Trump #11 or 8 is STRENGTH, showing the Goddess holding the jaws of the Lion open. She has an infinity symbol over her head, like the Magician does in his card #1. We must be always infinitely vigilant in conquering the devouring hunger of the ego. When we do this the Lion becomes the Source, Light, heart sourced.

TArot cards Strength 8 Tara Greene

Venus symbol of love, is Retrograde and returns to Leo July 31. The 29th is the most critical degree and will re-conflagrate “Hot” issues on all levels. Saturn is also in square to Venus upping the KARMIC ante. Jupiter and Venus have been in close conjunction in the skies weeks before this and we were all enjoying the connection of the Goddess of Love and the King together they will rendezvous again  August 4th. 

The outrage over Cecil the LION’s death embodies the new Regulus in Virgo symbol for the death of the old age of the Rulership of  the divine rights of Kings, who could rape, take or do whatever he wanted. The dentist also symbolizes the patriarchal egotistic, vain, arrogant energies of the conquering ego. As all of the Tarot symbols, planets and all of life has a dual nature, the hunter and the hunted are one and the same. The Trophy hunter is Dead, long live the Animals, the Goddess, her world. 

We must have STRENGTH to overcome these antiquated macho killing games. 

In essence the world-wide media attention means the game of killing animals for “sport” which is gobbledegook for murder from insecure psychopathic micro-penis machismo is also DEAD. I do hope that One lion changes the world.

These are powerful symbols and powerful times. Many countries use the Lion as their symbol. Great Britain, Afghanistan, Austria, Belgium,India, Iran, Kenya, Norway, Sri Lanka, the Tribe of Judah had the Lion symbol amongst others. All of those countries will symbolically have their Leonine energies transformed into earthy, practical, thrifty, intellectual, perfectionist, environmental Goddess territory and conserve the earth,the Divine Feminine and her gifts first. 

 SATURN is also extremely powerful and about to turn DIRECT AUGUST 1st at 29 degrees of SCORPIO. This creates a FIXED CROSS between LOVE and Karmic DUTY.  The 29th degree of Scorpio is the degree of total transmutation, death, and rebirth.

These are major deep karmic Lessons in Love times. Lessons about loving ourselves as well. I have been feeling Saturn’s leaden knife cut deep into my psyche. The old Patriarchal voices of control, by father figures, authorities, and childhood memories of rejection, of feeling unloved and abandoned, these  unconscious images arise from the depth to be processed and offered up to be transmuted.

Don’t be mute about it. Like Bill Cosby’s accusers all speaking out these days they are trans MUTING their silence.

Speak up about Cecil and all the needless Leo – arrogance and STOP it. Demand an end to killing animals for “sport” and more human treatment for all animals.  By extension more Unconditional love for women and children, for all humans, and for the earth, the quality of the food we eat and the environment we all share. Virgo the Virgin means whole, complete, Oneness, it is opposite Pisces and they are two poles of the same spirit, one in matter and one in invisible spiritual form.

Set the world on fire, Jupiter Trine Uranus

 Expect unexpected positive gifts from the heart today. Jupiter Trine URANUS. This only happens once every 6 years.

Fire Trine Astrology Tara Greene

Be a firebrand and a  firework today. All of you middle degree Leo’s and ignition starting Aries today is your RED LETTER DAY.

JUPITER in LEO is Big happy sunny humor at the preposterous crazy chaos going on in the world.

Like an unexpected cataclysmic gift -we are dealing with URANIAN energy after all, it can be what needs to blow up in order to motivate you to set your heart afire with revolutionary passion for change. 

This can augur more volcanic activity and sun spots. CME’s.

We can also see it as the U.S. coalition bombing Syria against ISIL. Grand Trines can work either way as can all energies.

SYRIA BTW born as a modern nation on September 16, 1941 at 12:01 am in Damascus.

has its Ascendant at 15 degrees of Cancer with its Moon at 16 of Cancer and its Mercury at 13 degrees of Libra.

So it is absolutely under fire from the Grand Cardinal Cross.

Jupiter Trines Uranus at 14 + degrees with Uranus still Retrograde so it may be a bit of a slooow burn for a bit. I know you are impatient your fiery types.

Libra and Aquarius get opposed with this energy and can benefit too.

Sagittarius with Sun or planets at the 15th degree get a GRAND FIRE TRINE.

ALL signs out there and those with Sun especially, but any and all planets between 11 – 19 degrees of ARIES and LEO get the full blast. 

JUPITER in LEO is fierce courage of the heart and will. Uranus in Aries gets us to blast our hearts out of the safe place.

GRAND TRINES will set your world on fire but only if you light the match and feed the flames.

So what are you going to burn?

What new inventive, creative positive potential will you be bold enough to ignite with this planetary energy?

What do you want to burn off?

It’s an explosive unexpected orgasm of POSITIVE energy.

Jupiter in LEO is being Lion Hearted with the WILL to take that leap.

OPTIMISM to trust that it just will work, if we pour our hearts in to it. Knowing and trusting that it will succeed.

Jupiter is FAITH that it will all just be FINE. Even if you don’t know how. 

This is the start of something greater.

SPEAKING IN TONGUES of fiery truth.

Mars in Sagittarius will Trine Uranus October 4th/5th also @ 14th+ degrees.

MERCURY goes RETROGRADE in Scorpio on the 4th. MOre about that separately.

VERY explosive energy. MARS Is the God of WAR. Be very careful around anything dangerous.

Things will get more chaotic, angry, truthful, inspiring with Justice coming to the foreground.

Again we will all have to play with fire but its your intention that counts.

Sun opposes URANUS on October 7 also 14+ degrees Libra

the biggest ball of fire ignites a chaotic flaming atomic explosion.  Reignition for April’s GRAND CARDINAL CROSS energy.

REMEMBER Uranus will be Retrograde until it turns Direct on December 21 2014 Winter solstice at 12 degrees 34 minutes.

Planets are at their most powerful when they turn DIRECT or Retrorograde.

URANUS has been RETROGRADING since July 21 at 16 degrees 32 minutes of ARIES.

ON the very powerful ARIES TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE OCTOBER 8th  at 15 degrees 07 minutes

Mars in Sagittarius Trines Jupiter at 17+ degrees then as well.

It will be an extremely powerful eclipse and I will write about that separately.

Let me know how you are feeling this.

Plan to slow burn that POSITIVE GRAND TRINE Energy which culminates on the eclipse so as not to BURN OUT too fast.

Jupiter in Leo, creative expansion heart openings

Yes The BIG HEAT is coming. FINALLY. We’ve been soggy and slogging through a lot of water- Jupiter in Cancer for the last year and Saturn in Scorpio for more than two years.

Contrary to Lorde’s popular song “We’ll never be Royals.” Jupiter enters FIRY LEO, sign of ROYALTY for a whole year.

YES EVERYBODY WANTS TO RULE THE WORLD.

WE WILL ALL BE BLESSED and BENEFITTING from JUPITER’S  EXPANSIVE OPTIMISTIC good Humor and  BOUNTY on July 16-August 12, 2015.

Yes think THE LIO KING and Hakuna Matata.

JUPITER is comfortable in the 5th sign, Leo is the second FIRE SIGN, JUPITER naturally rules the 3rd Fire Sign, Sagittarius.

With Jupiter in LEO the entire playing field changes dramatically. DRAMA is a keyword of LEO.

BIG CAT SCRATCH FEVER.  ROWRA… Pussy Cats and carnivorous Lions on the prowl.

Expansion on all levels is optimized. Can be good or bad.

It will be hot, passionate. BIG HAIR will be in style- like in the 80’s – for men- the MANES of  Robert Plant and Jim Morrison.

Leo’s wear their hearts on their sleeves. They demand to be center stage. So lots of BIG EGO’s parading around.

Leo is the sign of creative self- expression. More art, talent, shows, creativity and more people needing to experience art as a means of going beyond their normally corporate point of view. Art Leo Creativity.

Leo is also the sign of the CHILD.  CHILDREN;S rights will become a central issue. Many girls have been raped, sold, work as sex slaves and corporate drones, this issue will be forefront in the news and there will be dramatic appeals to protect children. 

Leo rules birth, so it is a fertile year, even after Jupiter is in Cancer.

LEO things that JUPITER will expand.

diamonds, gold, money speculation, gambling, risk taking, entertaining, big splashy,lavish,  extravagant,the THEATRE, STAND UP everything, giving, 

FASHION- gold, silver,ornate, over the top, Royal purple, 

PLACES

Damascus Syria, Italy, France, Prague Czechoslovakia. 

Dramatic rise in Heart attacks for both men and women. If you are not doing what you love to do- look out. BOOM.

Royal pregnancies- for Kate

We will all be feeling UP. 

Jupiter is like SANTA CLAUS, full of boundless joy, unstoppable YES WE CAN DO IT, and PARTY LIKE MAD>

Jupiter also rules travelling, foreigners, International Law, higher education, Judges, comedy, TRUTH telling, philosophy, the pomp of history and the military.philanthropists, charities.

Jupiter rules sports – there could be expansions. 

Pets, horses, exotic ones. LIONS- laws to protect them and all animals. 

Jupiter rules the thighs. Expansion there- start on those specific areas.

SO ARIES SAGITTARIUS and LEO you will be TRINED and crowned soon. YOU will feel in your game again.

Jupiter will SQUARE- push SCORPIO- Taurus, and oppose AQUARIUS.

I am certainly looking forwards to this.

I will do a more detailed JUPITER through the signs forecast in more depth shortly.

Monday Moon’s in Leo, ROAR, debt ceiling

MONDAY -The last day of September goes out like a Lion with the Moon in Leo.

Beauty and the Beast Vogue Drew BarrymoreTara Greene AstrologyDrew Barrymore on a Vogue Magazine cover 

The week starts off quincunxy- no not some weird new sex fad. Feline Moon makes off kilter and no Scottish sex jokes there either, aspects to Chiron the wounded healer, a centaur. So very animistic instinctive sort of a week beginner.

Moon TRINES URANUS @ 1:11 EDT you felt this last night on the West coast.

let that kitty out of its cage. Unleash your instinctual pounce.

MOON CONJUNCTS MARS in LEO @ 7:03 pm PDT @ 20-21 degrees The LION KING/ QUEEN 

Check out where that degree falls in your chart. It’s where you will experience HOT HI DRAMA. Be BOLD, brave, heroic, roaring, proud, daring, get all the applause, stand up, wear your heart on your sleeve. Leo is the sign of creativity, self- expression, The perfect night to go to a karaoke bar. To Come out from under that lampshade, or wherever you are hiding it and SHINE YOUR LIGHT for all, or just a special someone to see.

Great energy to be in a play, see a play, something high drama, dance, make art, sing.

It’s also a childlike aspect so do let your INNER CHILD PLAY,PLAY, PLAY. Like that song “Son of a gun, we’ll have big fun on the bayou.”

To hell with worrying about a Debt ceiling.

Leo rules the HEART so if you’ve been to shy to tell someone how you feel you will have the courage to do it.

Make a beautiful dinner date, and it will be hot, hot, hot and heavy

especially as Moon also squares VENUS in SCORPIO @ 9:48 pm PDT/ October 1 @ 12:48 am EDT

That means, the power changes. You know, King for a day, Queen for a DAY,

Now the women have the reins. Then the Moon goes Void of course.

You have an amazing time to explore anything while in the void zone. And wake up happy and in  a place of freedom,with no aspects.

ENJOY ENJOY! ENJOY! While You can.   You create your reality,  have a passionate sweet time while it lasts.

MARS in the Tarot is THE TOWER Trump #16 and LEO is Trump #8 STRENGTH, Yah I know the 8/11 thing.

The TOWER and STRENGTH side by side.  Literally this means being a Tower of Strength.

October 1 Moon enters VIRGO @ 11:52 am PDT/2:52 pm EDT  REALITY, back to work, sets in.

October will be a doozy. It begins  all soft and dreamy 

MERCURY TRINES NEPTUNE OCTOBER 1st @ 3 degrees 03 minutes of Scorpio /Pisces 

thinking makes it happen, makes it real- focus all day, remember Mercury is in Scorpio

Virgo Moon opposes Neptune in the evening- how grounded was all that? You have to balance that conundrum out.

The Sun begins contact with the BIG T-square PLANETS October 1.

SUN SQUARES PLUTO in Capricorn 6:27 pm PDT from  9 degrees 01 minutes of LIBRA.

POWER TO The GOAL oriented PEOPLE, challenges to those in power, Corporations, and face offs with the Real people in power.

SUN OPPOSES URANUS on Oct 3 @ 7:11 am PDT @ 10 degrees 31 minutes Libra/ Aries Retrograde

Revolutionary forces are at work, the Republicans oppose everything President Obama does.  Change is the new black.

LIBRA Moon squares Pluto, opposes Uranus and Conjunts the Sun on the 

NEW MOON OCTOBER 4 @ 11 degrees LIBRA- will write more later.

ROAR Katy Perry 

On the Bayou- Doug Kershaw  

 

A Royally karmic Leo New Moon and the Nodal Axis

Each New Moon every month is a new beginning in the Lunar cycle that affects our emotions, the flux and flow of  the oceans, our feelings.

The 3 days of the New Moon, when the Sun and the Moon are in conjunction are the darkest time of the month. The Moon rests and renews Herself.

In Leo, the Sign ruled by the Sun itself, the 5th sign, Fixed Fire, is our feelings centers, our wills, our hearts, our strength, pride and courage swell and shine brightest. In the Tarot the Symbol of LEO is STRENGTH.

A LEO NEW MOON is where our egos and feelings are in the dark, gestating, hidden, full of new potential waiting to be born. The Lions sleep tonight.

Leo New moon astrology

The August 6 New moon at 14+ degrees Leo is actually on the 15th and most powerful degree of any sign, the exact midpoint.

This further strengthens and empowers the heart, and the childlike nature of Leo, the role playing, the strut, the Ego.

LEo is the sign of ROYALTY, Kings and Queen’s- either real ones, and we’ve just had the birth of a new Royal Prince

or pretend ones, petty tyrants  those who strut around like everyone else owes them.

POWER is Leo’s middle Name.

One of the most powerful features of this New Moon is its’ T- Square to the North Node at 12 degrees Scorpio and the South at 12 degrees of Taurus.

THE NORTH and South Nodes are considered to be Karmic points which transit around every 18.6 years in their cycles. The N and S Nodes  create eclipses of the Sun and Moon on average 4 times  each year when the Luminaries align close to them. They have been considered very important points for thousands of years.

The North Node, whether in a Natal chart or in a collective chart such as this one, always symbolizes the  highest spiritual goal, what we are evolving towards. The South Node is always the past,  what we already know and what we need to leave behind. The South Node is the point of least resistance. This hard aspect indicates we are at a cross roads and must choose now to leave the old Taurus resources  behind.

Relationships, marriages, Royalty, ego’s, children, and everything symbolized by LEO, and leaders  of all kinds must leave the old familiar basic down to earth, survival instincts of Taurus and evolve to create a deeper, more encompassing SOUL/psyche Scorpio, 8th house form of shared resources.

The New MOON is conjunct the GODDESS ASTEROID VESTA exactly. Vesta was the GODDESS OF FIRE, the hearth flame, whose name is originally Sanskrit for “Shining”. She was originally worshipped at Delphi,Greece as a heap  of living coal, known as the Omphalos or Navel of the World.  In pre-patriarchal times all women served as Priestesses in her sacred  temples.  The Priestesses healed men  after they had been to war and had shed blood through having Tantric Sex which cleansed and purifed them before they could be integrated back into society.  These women were seen to be holy Hierodules, human forms of the Goddess Divine.  The Vestal “virgins” meant that they were whole and complete unto themselves and belonged to no one man. This became corrupted into what we now think of as Vestal Virgins, celibate women, like nuns, who were dedicated to religion.  Vesta symbolizes dedication to our sacred work. 

SCORPIO, where the North Node is leading us, until the Spring of 2014, is the SIGN OF SOUL, of birth death and transformation, it is sex, power, money, resources, taxes, secrets, finances and it moves from the 2nd house of Taurus which is personal resources to Collective resources, the World soul of the 8th house.

In other words our ego’s, our sexuality and our work must evolve past the literal and fundamental, the mere survival level  to incorporate a SOUL inclusive perspective.

CHIRON at 12 degrees Pisces is Quincunx to the NEW MOON and VESTA.  Pride must fall before real healing compassion and forgiveness can take place. Like and Addict who hides their addiction behind an act or a role, they cannot begin to get real until the actor admits to their crutch. Sexuality that is divorced from the soul, such as addiction to pornography or defiling the sacredness of sex needs to be healed.  so that our bodies and especially women’s bodies are considered the most sacred. where the body is considered SACRED body  .

Venus at 18 degrees VIRGO also opposes Chiron to indicate that  our bodies and especially women’s bodies are considered to be the most sacred.  Venus in Virgo serves and cares about her work, the work force, health, food and the environment that needs to be healed. Ongoing protests against MONSANTO need to be kept up vigilantly until they are outlawed in the U.S. and Canada as in Europe, Peru, Bolivia and other countries.

JUPITER is also a very prominent player. On AUGUST 7  Jupiter makes the first of 3 oppositions to PLUTO in CAPRICORN and on AUGUST 21 makes the first of 3 squares to URANUS which makes this month extremely dynamic and revolutionary.

JUPITER In Cancer expands our knowledge and understanding of family, nurturing, home, security,wholesome food, women and children. And of course those GRAND OLD Trines are still in effect with Neptune in Pisces and Saturn In Scorpio. 

Take time at the 3 days of the DARK of the Moon from the 6-9th to contemplate how your heart’s desire and your will will expand to heal yourself and the world. These are challenging times. we must boldy go forth, as in the Star Trek motto- 

REMEMBER to do the Jupiter Pluto Ritual from the 3rd -7th every day as well.
