Mars in Pisces pray for Smart Compassion

While Mars is in Pisces November 15- December 31
This almost 7-week transit brings a very big opportunity for compassion for ourselves and others,
Testimony Napoleon Brousseau art, Tara Greene astrology

“Testimony” by Napoleon Brousseau Oil painting Collection of Jamie Angell of Angell Gallery Toronto

“Compassion asks us to go where it hurts, to enter into the places of pain, to share in brokenness, fear, confusion, and anguish. Compassion challenges us to cry out with those in misery, to mourn with those who are lonely, to weep with those in tears. Compassion requires us to be weak with the weak, vulnerable with the vulnerable, and powerless with the powerless. Compassion means full immersion in the condition of being human. ~Henri J.M. Nouwen
There are two types of compassion. Idiot compassion and smart compassion.
What is”Idiot compassion”?

while it sounds very odd and “blamey” the term originated from Tibetan Buddhist teacher Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, Pema Chodron and my own root guru Namgyal Rinpoche https://www.namgyal.ca/ talked about this. It is a form of co-dependency. It is also very much built into ideas about romantic love. Idiot compassion “refers to something we all do a lot of and call it compassion. In some ways, it’s what’s called enabling. It’s the general tendency to give people what they want because you can’t bear to see them suffering.” Chodron exposes the danger in this: instead of offering a friend medicine, bitter though it may be when ingested, you feed them more poison. ” https://rethinkingreligion-book.info/buddhists-dont-have-to-be-nice-avoiding-idiot-compassion/

What is smart compassion?
This is a very hot topic these days. As victims of sexual abuse and rape find their strength to admit what happened to them, many victims buy into the Christian and spiritual “New Age” belief that you should thank and forgive your perpetrators. It is only truly most important to forgive yourself for any shame or self-blame, as you were innocent. The victim must thoroughly hold that wounded child and re-mother and reparent them with unconditional love through the Great Mother/Father God/dess, until they feel healed and whole, an ongoing process. It is wise to let go of the emotional ties to the perpetrator and not be stuck in that horrible wound to free oneself.  Simply pray for the perpetrators healing for one’s own sanity and to move on with the strength and wisdom gained from a terrible experience. In New Age thought thanking the perpetrator for abusing you so that you could have this experience is a popular notion. This idea keeps fueling, aiding and abetting all abusers and abusive cultural “norms” unconsciously and consciously. It keeps a co-dependent relationship going -can’t be abused without an abuser. While this is true, those who have been abused need to solely become their own rescuer as no one can do it but themselves. The abuser is wholly responsible for their own actions which they will have to deal with through their own karma. It’s not the job of the abused to do so at all.
The abused only need to become consciously aware enough to see and feel their own unconscious patterns which have been passed down through DNA through generation after generation of sexual, emotional and spiritual abuse by the hierarchy and religions of the Patriarchy. It is a lineage that has gone on for thousands of years. But now- enough is enough. 
Also while Mars is in Pisces it will bring rain to help stop the fires, But that brings with it the possibility of mudslides. So lets pray for exactly the outcome we want. This much rain, no or minimal mudslides. 
We must be compassionate with ourselves.
SUN trines Chiron in Pisces  November 20
Embrace your soul emotional body and ability to hit the depths of the depths and know that this is part of the reconnaissance mission to resurrect yourself. Be kind to yourself and others.

Blood Moon Eclipse, Fire Goddess Initiation

A shorter version of the article is posted on COSMIC INTELLIGENCE AGENCY website: I’m Agent 129, Tara Greene. http://www.cosmicintelligenceagency.com/2015/09/aries-full-moon-meditation-on-the-fiery-goddesses/
Mars rules the sign of Aries and thus this eclipse. Mars is newly in Virgo where he is in Virgin Goddess territory, a feminine, earthy, intellectual, practical sign. Mars is squaring Saturn, this is a very karmic time and people are tense;- see previous article.

This is the fourth eclipse of 2015 and another Super Moon. Fear not the stories of Armageddon or the state of Israel or anything like that. That fear comes from old Patriarchs and warrior men who seized power 4,000 something years ago and smell that something is up. The old world cultures is dying and a new one is being birthed. The Sun is in Libra and a big theme of this eclipse is a karmic rebalancing between the sexes on the Aries/ me, Libra/ you axis.

Mars is now transformed into an Earth warrior, a defender of the Goddess, a chivalrous Knight in shining armor, battling to save the land, the environment, an eco-warrior, a humble worker bee for the Queen now. The POPE himself just delivered such a message in America. Think of the Knights Templar venturing off to find and protect the Holy Grail.

Blood moon aries lunar eclipse astrology Tara Greene

The eclipse will be entirely visible in all of South America, Cuba and Central America. It will be totally visible in Britain, Spain, Portugal, France, Germany, and parts of Sweden, and East Africa. All the eastern seaboard in Canada and the U.S. will witness the full eclipse. The totality of the eclipse lasts 1 hour and 12 minutes but the entirety is 3 hours and 20 minutes. The countries to see totality are affected the most strongly. The mid- to Western parts of Canada and the U.S. will see the eclipse in progress at moonrise. The eclipse will not be visible at all east of India and in Australia or China and in eastern Russia. This eclipse echoes a past one at similar degrees 18 years ago.

There is a Grand Fire trine composed of Athena the Warrior Goddess in Sagittarius, Uranus in Aries and Venus in Leo. Somethings burning.

The Eclipsed Moon is connected with very strong powerful Feminine Archetypal warrior Goddess energies. The Goddesses are blazingly unstoppably and fearless. The Age of Aries is the beginnings of the Patriarchal Jewish religion. But this time the tables are turning.  The FULL Moon is in Aries conjunct to the South Node, our collective past. The South Node is the black hole of the chart, all light and energy get sucked in and go into that cosmic drain. The old Patriarchal warrior dominator God, split off from Nature and controlling women as a culture is dying.

The Moon being eclipsed will turn blood red, the color of menstrual blood, the Blood of life, which is also the blood that runs in everyone’s veins. The Full Moon is the time of fertility and completion. The Full Moon governs all women’s reproductive cycle, the oceans and our emotions. The ripe ovum is what the Full Moon symbolizes and is on a real physical level. Women’s bodies are always naturally in perfect synchronization with the lunar cycles.

The Moon is conjunct to Asteroid Vesta.  The original Vestal virgins were women who were the Goddess’s sacred hierodules, sacred tantric priestesses. Not the pure chaste patriarchal version at all. Vesta represents focus, dedication and the powers of purification.

The Divine Feminine/the Moon is collectively ripe, ready, and waiting to be fertilized, to conceive, with her own masculine fiery energy. Every man and woman has both an inner contra-masculine and feminine energy. The Moon is self-fertilizing. She can parthenogenically reproduce. This is a very high spiritual training. The Virgin Mary {Virgo} was one of the sacred initiates, a High Priestess of the Goddess who served as a Vestal Virgin and knew how to conceive herself. Also it’s a metaphor.

The Sun is in Libra, ruled by Venus. Libra is the sign of the balance, justice and relationships. Sun is conjunct to the North Node, which creates eclipses. The North Node, our highest spiritual goal is connected to LILITH, the Archetype of the Original woman, pre-patriarchal, pre- Eve. LILITH, like KALI, is The Divine Goddess of all creation, she is free, erotic, and answers to no one but herself, she is uncompromising and both gives birth and brings death as Nature does. Asteroid Goddess JUNO, the Goddess of Feminine Wisdom and Retrograde Mercury are all in a close conjunction with Lilith. We are revisiting some ancient ways of relating.

TRIPLE GODDESS INITIATION

Vesta is a Virgin, a maiden. Juno/Hera is the Mother/wife archetype. Lilith is the Crone aspect. This is the initiation of the Ancient Triple Goddess. Robert Graves wrote about her extensively in his books.

This eclipse is all about bringing us into a new balance, by a trial of fire.  Mars in Virgo is in Square to Saturn in Sagittarius. Like walking on hot coals. We must have faith and trust. It is there. Jupiter in Virgo is opposite Neptune in Pisces also squaring Saturn in Sage. There is a Cardinal cross from Uranus to Pluto we are still in heavy throws of that energy as Pluto just turned direct three days before this eclipse.

RELATIONSHIPS ARE THE HALL MARK OF THE BLOOD MOON ECLIPSE

lbrys Angels, Napoleon Brousseau

Labrys Angels by Napoleon Brousseau

charcoal and oil on paper 

The Blood Moon is the initiation of the collective into a very sacred experience. As the moon is eclipsed by the earth we will witness an alchemical transmutation of the white Full moon symbolizing, the ripe ovum, milk, or semen, into the blood red menstrual cycle. Life and death come together to create something new. Menstrual blood was originally considered to be the most sacred of substances, the word Taboo, originally meant sacred. It was the substance used to initiate men and women. It was used as a sacred offering because it is a magical, the blood of life and not death. Women were seen to bleed monthly exactly in harmony with the moon and not die. Women are the birth givers, the Goddess who brings forth life. These ancient archetypes do not die just because science comes along and explains it all from its’ singular perspective. That is not the entire story. We are not merely physical beings but spiritual beings, storytellers, myth makers. This eclipse symbolizes the sacrificial blood-letting and a new life cycle starting.

Tibetan Buddhists revere a Red Dakini, a powerful Female Deity whose power is  unrelenting fiery passion towards enlightenment. She is an icon of untamed female freedom. Dakinis are often connected to synchronicity and inexplicable coincidences of fate. Tsultrim Allione wrote in her book, Women of Wisdom, “The dakini appears at crucial moments. These encounters often have a quality of sharp, incisive challenge to the fixed conceptions of the practitioner.”

At this powerful time the old patriarchal stories of women being treated as objects, owned by men, raped and abused as the earth is, is falling away. Many relationships will be tested and end during this next 6 months. Women are coming into their full power as independent beings, owned by no man, strong, initiating and fighting the good fight for the earth, and all her children. Defending women’s rights to reproductive freedom, is a right of the goddess and this will become a huge issue..

The CHANDRA SYMBOL by John Sandbach

“A woman harvesting rose petals to make perfume.”

You have the ability to tune into a spiritual wavelength which simplifies, harmonizes and elevates he atmosphere around you. Your positive loving intentions are a healing balm for yourself and others. To the extent which you can trust yourself all negativity falls away and your path opens clearly before you.
Pleiadian Symbol: Gently a feather falls from the skies, settling on a gigantic pyramid.

 Use these symbols and images in your meditation and let them guide you.

Music: strong energetic staccato music, drums, didgeridoo’s. Gabriel Roth’s staccato rhythm would be good. Live drumming is also recommended both men and women/

A Rumi Poem to be read

O Beloved, take me,

Liberate my soul.

Fill me with your love and release me

From the two worlds.

If I set my heart on anything but you

Let fire burn ne from inside.

O Beloved,

Take away what I want.

Take away what I do,

Take away what I need.

Take away everything

That takes me away from you.

Gaze into the fire. Semi-close your eyes.  Breathe in and out three times deeply and naturally. Call upon the Triple Goddesses, Vesta, Juno and Lilith to be with you and guide you.  I would be standing up and allowing your body to move in what’s called authentic movement.  Just wait, if you have music or drums just let your body be moved by the beat and rhythm. As this is a grounding of the masculine fire energies, concentrate on your root chakra and feel it expanding, heating up and opening. This eclipse energy will be very strong. Just let it move you.

If you are a woman, how do you feel about your menstrual cycle? Is there shame attached to it?

If you are bleeding on this blood moon, then take out your tampons or menstrual pads and allow yourself to bleed freely into the earth. This is a very powerful way of mimicking the Blood moon. Feel how sacred and connected your body is with the cosmos. Honor yourself as a sacred being. Allow the sense of healing, acceptance, strength and pride in your most natural and most feminine physicality and spirituality.

Menopausal women also carry their blood within them. Remember when you were a maiden. Remember the energy. Belly dancing would be great.

If you have been a victim of sexual abuse or rape, this is the perfect time to vent your righteous anger safely by dancing and screaming it out. Releasing the anger makes way for new energy.

See yourself being transformed from a passive victim, doormat or object into an empowered person. Call upon those Warrior Goddesses. The Morrigan, Brigantia, Pele, Oya, Nike, Freya, Eris or the Vajrayogini, above to empower you to make you strong. Sing/ chant “Warrior Goddess, Warrior Goddess come to me.” over and over.

Once you tune into the fire power of the Triple Goddess and let that energy move through you, you should be feeling very strong, empowered and ready to take on anything. Be joyous, happy and feel liberated. It’s all good. Fear not. The power and the fury of the Goddess is what the patriarchy fears the most. Be a lioness, a mother bear, a ferocious dragon.

Your instincts will know what is ethically right to protect and defend. The Moon symbolizes memories, the blood moon will reveal all of your unconscious memories and instincts. Recollect them use them as your guide.

At the end of the ceremony. Thank all the spirits and elementals and Goddesses or Gods who showed up. Dismiss the direction in clockwise order. Put out your candles or fire.

Initiate a new activity, focus and project using your feminine Fire Power. Let me know how you are doing. These Goddess Archetypes live through us.. 

Many Blessings, Tara

Weekend Astrology update. Earth Trine mood.

I am still recovering from the Charlie Hebdo shootings. I am feeling the anger of the world against the Muslim Extremists. I have to keep breathing through it. I saw Bill Maher on Jimmy Kimmel saying he was a Liberal and Liberals have to defend their freedoms against millions of Muslims whose religion states you cannot joke about Allah.  Enough of this political correctness. That day and age is over. Nail that coffin shut. Saturn in Sagittarius square to Neptune in Pisces will ensure that.  No more “idiotic compassion.” I will write about that another time.

WHO IS THE DEVIL?

Yes it’s all shadow work now.  The year 2015 in Numerology;  if you use the 20 prefix as the one thousand year High Priestess Feminine cycle we are now in..

Then number #15 is present year and is THE DEVIL in the TAROT. That’s exactly what we are dealing with.  Each side is demonizing the other except we aren’t singling out and beheading and murdering those others because they are not doing what we like. Its all psychopathic behaviour.. 

The Moon is in Virgo now as of Jan 8 @ 5:58 pm EST

The moon has squared Saturn making for a morose subdued sad energy.

Jan 9 

Moon is opposite Neptune tonight making for intensive dreaming.

It’s another one of those out of kilter quincunxy days with the Nit picky Virgo Moon making;

quincunx #1 to Mercury in Aquarius.Mercury rules Virgo so we will be very detached in our analysis.

Quincunx # 2 to VENUS in Aquarius. Means arguments, cool headed arguments,

Quincunx #3 to Uranus in Aries. Means jumping to conclusions and reacting in haste makes us too volatile.

There is an earth Trine from the Moon to Pluto in Capricorn

indicating great undercover investigative powers. Major information  will surface about the Terrorist attacks and the downed Plain in the Java Sea. 

The earth trine also benefits you TAURUS so go over your budget while the Moon supports you.

Moon opposes Chiron in Pisces

Virgo Moon loves to analyze and there will be much continued discussion about religious tolerance, compassion, martyrdom and where we stand in this polarization.

Jan 10 

Moon trine SUN in Capricorn

This is always a nice aspect. Try to stay grounded. 

JAn 11 

Capricorn Sun quincunx to Jupiter Retro. in Leo at night 

up oh someones luck has run out. Be careful about your boasting. 

Virgo moon also Quincunx’s Mars in Aquarius in the wee hours.

New ideas may enter your dreamscape. You may be flying on magic carpets, dreams may be high tech in nature.

MOON enters LIBRA #=@ 3:57 am PST/ 6:57 am EST

We will begin to feel a bit more balanced. We need this now. 

Moon sextiles Saturn in Sagittarius sunday morning

Truth, justice, religion will be debated. 

Moon quincunx Neptune in Pisces afternoon

Maintaining a sense of balance will be difficult. Offset with feelings of overwhelm as sympathy, false compassion, and martyrdom mix.

INSPIRATIONAL CARD OF THE DAY 

WORRY

5 of discs Tarot Tara Greene

5 of discs Dream Logic Tarot

The Five of Disks illustrates perfectly  a Virgo Moon with all those quincunxes happening.

Traditionally it has the title WORRY. Yes and we are worried. And we should be worried. These are grave crossroads as all the number 5’s point out. We are being tested as to where we have come in the last 5 years and where we are going in the next 5.

The mind runs through and reruns all the scenarios, all the details, all the what if? should haves….

Virgo Moon wants every detail to be in place and works very hard to attain an impossible perfection. 

This is also big self-criticism time. What you didn’t do well enough. Blaming others for slacking off. 

I’m going to pull another card tomorrow. 

The antidote for Virgo mentality is to breathe and center in your heart.

GEMINI NEW MOON talk about it Astrology by Tara Greene

I’ve been at the beautiful GRAIL SPRINGS SPA in Bancroft,Ontario, the only Healing Hotel in Canada one of only a  handful in the world,  teaching workshops all weekend.  I was so busy doing readings that I didn’t have a moment to stop and write .

Ah such is GEMINI times, or is that are Gemini times? 

It’s MEMORIAL DAY in the U.S. May 26. A sad one,I send blessings to those killed and injured by Elliot Rodger in California over the weekend, to his parents  and family. I was looking for his birth chart and fellow astrologer Matthew Currie has written an excellent article about it.

All NEW MOON’s are the beginning of new monthly cycles.-see video below women.

This month’s NEW MOON is May 28 at 11:40 am PDT/ 2:40 pm EDT/ 6:40 pm GMT at 7 + degrees Gemini.

GEMINI, Mutable Air, 3rd sign ,the first human sign, the TWINS, which have been portrayed from the Bible as Cain and Abel through most mythologies and cultures as the primal pair.

Gemini, ruled by planet MERCURY, is consciousness itself, the brain which has two halves. Gemini represents the nature of DUALITY itself in the Universe. Up, down, black , white, positive, negative, as above, so below, masculine/feminine, day/night. etc.

Mercury is at that 29th “critical degree” of GEMINI. Indicating that there is an inherent need to GET THE COMMUNICATION RIGHT now. 

EARLY MERCURY RETROGRADE ALERT!

We are now in the MERCURY RETROGRADE SHADOW- MERCURY Will go RETROGRADE on JUNE 7-JULY 1.

With about 70,000 thoughts coursing through the average brain every day, we process huge amount of information. In this super fast INFORMATION age we are bombarded with more information than ever before in human history.

According to Buddhist thought,the key to enlightenment which we can be accessed through meditation, yoga, martial arts, or by being totally absorbed in a positive activity where the ego chatter stops, is the main goal. 

“STOPPING THE WORLD” was what Don Juan, Carlos Castenada’s Mexican nagual {shamanic} teacher called it.

VENUS is the esoteric ruler of GEMINI and she is also at a critical degree -the 29th of ARIES. 

The 29th degree of ANY SIGN means we need to integrate the final lesson, mode  or experience before we can move on.

VENUS is the planet of the FEMININE, Goddess of love, beauty, harmony, the arts, and she is also symbolically telling us to ACT from a place of LOVE. Aries is the war-god, MARS’s home territory. Venus in ARIES is defending love, defending the Feminine, protecting the Feminine as was the traditional CHIVALRY way, which was in balance with the old natural order system.

VENUS in ARIES is negatively also ANGER At women- which was partly the cause of the timing of the unfortunate tragedy by that mentally disturbed autistic young man in California. 

SO the CRITICAL RED ALERT MESSAGE at this NEW MOON in GEMINI is that we must INTEGRATE the opposites.

The modern Western world,  reveres the most important organ and the main center of the body as the Brain.

In the Ancient World, and in indigenous societies today, as in Tibetan Buddhism, the HEART is the most important organ of knowledge.

Gemini’s main message is the UNION of the two organs- the heart and the mind.

In the TAROT the sign of GEMINI is associated with 

THE LOVERS Tarot Psychic Tara Greene

TRUMP #6 THE LOVERS

Recent research done by the HEART MATH Institute in California and shows that the heart is the very first organ that a human foetus creates before the brain. Therefore the heart is primary. The heart itself has its’ own brain. The heart’s electromagnetic field is 5,000 times stronger than that of the brain and can be measured several feet outside of the body. here I recently attended and introductory workshop from the Heart Math Institute and found its research fascinating. The heart has 40,000 neurons relaying information to the brain and these neurons enable the heart to remember, learn and make decision independently of the brain.  You know the saying my heart wasn’t into  it, well that is true.  Physical and emotional pain are interpreted by the same part of the brain. WE also have empathic “mirror neurons” in the brain which feels the pain of others in our own bodies.  see links below to discover more about heart math

We need to bring our HEARTS-the feminine & OUR MINDS the MASCULINE together. 

We cannot survive in the world with our brians/ego’s controlling everything, it is disastrous. 

In Buddhist teachings prayers are for blessings in BODY SPEECH and MIND. 

the BODY being the Brain, the organ which like a computer, organizes and runs the body. Speech being the throat and MIND or consciousness is  the HEART. This is totally reversed from the way we see our conscious orientation in the West.

The SOUTH NODE of the Moon which symbolizes the past, the Unconscious memories is conjunct to VENUS. We need to reconnect to our ancient ancestral roots wherein we firstly listened to our hearts. We need to be warriors of the Heart in this case not at war from our minds.

CHECK out where the new heart/mind marriage occurs in your chart. Which house contains 7 degrees of GEMINI? What aspects, if any does the Sun and MOON make. These are your indicators of a new beginning in Love, connection, in communicating both your feelings and your thoughts in harmony and balance..

We are moving out of the Grand Cardinal Cross as Mars moves out of square to Jupiter, Mars is still opposed to Uranus and Square to Pluto though. The beat goes on. 

NEPTUNE, planet of spiritual osmosis, dreaming, communion, creativity, is exactly in sextile to the SUN and MOON at 7 degrees Pisces.

Pisces is the last sign, water, oceanic consciousness and Bliss. Let Bliss be your guiding light.True Bliss is engendered by spiritual Oneness, feeling the Onessess beyond duality.

George Clooney, Grand Cardinal Crosses can be good, by Tara Greene

Congratulations to actor George Clooney and his fiancée Amal Alamuddin who was named the #1 Barrister Hottie last year.

GEorge Clooney Amal Astrology Tara Greene

George always tops the world’s most handsome eligible bachelors list, was married once and admitted that “he wasn’t good at it.” He had always said he’d be a bachelor, so why has he  asked the beautiful and super intellectual dark-haired Lebanese trilingual Amal to be his wife after dating since October 2013?

Lets look at what’d up with Clooney’s planetary transit’s shall we?

And Belated HAPPY BIRTHDAY WISHES George May 6, 53 years young

George Clooney Astrology Tara Greene

GEORGE is of course a suave, steady earthy TAURUS born with the Sun at 15 degrees always considered to be the most powerful degree.

The Sun is in the natural 2nd house of resources, tools, sensuality, money-making, strength. George has Mercury conjunct the Sun making him a great communicator,charming, adaptable, Taurean slow and steady, a great voice, he oozes that Taurus sexiness. He can be vain, loves beauty, has great and expensive taste. Good thing he became so famous and wealthy.

Mr. Clooney’s chart is not so simple. He is a complex person.

His MOON is at 27 degrees+ of CAPRICORN in his 11th {Aquarian overlay} house.

That count 2 for earth signs. Moon is always Mom in everyone’s chart. The Moon symbolizes George’s relationship to his mother, his feelings, intuition, childhood, memories, security needs, receptivity to women. Moon in Capricorn doesn’t like to be emotional, it would rather be practical, hard-working, organizing, doing, making money, building an empire. Moon in the 11th house is Aquarian like. Someone who get emotional security from being part of a group community, being a rebel, who needs freedom to march to his own emotional heartbeat. His Mom and his may have a detached relationship. His career gives him strength and security. This could substitute for his own emotional insecurity.

George’s Ascendant is PISCES

at 11 degrees. The sign of the actor, the chameleon, the super sensitive, emotional spiritual, idealist. He is a dreamer, an illusionist, can be an addictive personality. A great visionary, artists, compassionate and charitable. Kind and considerate of others. 

VENUS in a man’s chart is his LOVE NATURE- Venus in ARIES

Venus indicates what he is attracted to in women, his values, how he wants to be loved. Venus is in the 1st house of EGO, I am, self-centered at 13+ degrees of  ARIES he is passionate, spontaneous, easily bored and restless, can be hot-tempered, impatient. Venus in Aries  makes him attracted to strong, independent, high energy, self-motivated, brash women. Venus rules his TAURUS SUN and MERCURY giving him extra vitality in Aries, although she is in Mars sign-which would explain the  rumours George was gay. Venus in Aries is always youthful, and he would be attracted to younger women. Ideally his Goddess is a fearless  AMAZON warrioress. Wasn’t he just dating a wrestler? Amal, his fiance would fall into this category as an independent self- made lawyer representing rebels like Julian Assange and the like. Venus makes no hard aspects in his natal chart. So he has no trouble attracting love from women, duh.

MARS his MALE SEXINESS in LEO

Well yes George would be a zero degrees Leo Mars type. Mars in LEO in the 5th house is the LION male pride, courage, star power, wealth, influence, shining brightly on the world’s stage. Creative, self-expressive, many love affairs, a childlike innocence all are part of this. He is very loyal to those he cares about, and has many good friends. He wears his heart on his sleeve. He is an old-fashioned man, a passionate lover. 

JUPITER in AQUARIUS, 6+ degrees in the 12th house

JUPITER is the great benefactor, in the 12 th house this is what I call the Bodhisattva sign. George has done a lot of spiritual work in a past life. Jupiter in Aquarius is a rebel, a loner, someone who educated the public, who dares to risk his neck for freedom. Jupiter is opposite George’s Mars amplifying that Mars in LEO sex appeal, leadership and charisma.

Jupiter in Aquarius, makes George psychic and able to see and know what is coming, He is a visionary, well read, curious to learn. He is open-minded about religion and would be attracted to people who are very different than himself. Jupiter squares his SUN and Neptune Retrograde in Scorpio in the 8th house. This amplifies his spiritual quest. Deep down George is very idealistic and romantic, Sun square Jupiter and opposite Neptune. He is looking for that soul mate, always has been.  Neptune Retrograde in Scorpio, in the 8th {Scorpio} house.  He came into this life with a psychic imprint of who she is. She will transform his life and he hers.

SATURN at 29 degrees CAPRICORN in the 11th HOUSE

Saturn rules CAPRICORN and it’s at the very last “critical” degree of Capricorn so good old SATURN the Lord of KARMA ,is at his most potent,powerful, senatorial, mature. Clooney is made to be a big league ruler of whatever he chooses to build. Like fine wine he will only improve with age and really step into his own in the next 9 years or so. He is a conservative, a hard worker, an earthy architect. He respects tradition even though he is also here to reinvent the old. He wants power and prestige that lasts. He wants to make his mark in history for making the world a better place and bringing group consciousness to a higher  place. His father had a very strong influence on him. He is the only person in Academy Award history to be nominated for Oscars in six different categories: Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay and Best Adapted Screenplay showing that 11 th house influence.

SATURN conjunct his MOON and Jupiter opposite MARS in LEO

This is traditionally a very difficult aspect. Saturn conjunct the Moon tends towards depression as  Saturn restricts the Moon’s expression. Saturn makes emotional contacts difficult until the person is mature enough to trust. The presence of Jupiter to Moon Saturn lightens this up and makes it way more positive. Saturn is George’s father and the Moon his mother, can be a close-knit traditional family which it was. Mars in Leo is very generous opposite Jupiter in Aquarius and less egotistical.

URANUS AT 21 DEGREES LEO IN THE 6TH HOUSE

Uranus is always rebellion, in the house of work. Uranus squares the SUN and Mercury. George is a brilliant thinker, organizer, works in his own way, implements new ideas which open people’s minds. Uranus in LEO is unusual, independent will power and heart. His passion is freedom for all.

PLUTO at 5 degrees VIRGO in the 6th house Retrograde

PLUTO is the soul, the shadow, the Unconscious. PLUTO conjunct his NORTH NODE at 3 degrees VIRGO. This is a very karmic signature. It means George came into this lifetime to truly manifest his soul’s work,  6th house, to perfect his soul. To be humble, to serve, to write, analyze, clean up. 

SOUTH NODE at 3 degrees PISCES in the 12th house

George’s Pisces SOUTH NODE indicates that his past life was very spiritual, that he had given up all worldly possessions, that he may have been a hermit, a spiritual seeker, guru, or holy man. George is very sensitive, psychic empathic and compassionate. He has a reclusive side to him.

CHIRON at 6 degrees PISCES, opposite PLUTO conjunct SOUTH NODE

Again this is a very very spiritual mark. George is a wounded healer. In Pisces, he can heal through his creativity, through Film- his Pisces chosen medium. He heals those he touches as a chameleon on very subtle levels. George is tuned into the collective consciousness he is probably a great dreamer. He came to this world awake, remembering his mission. 

I left out the asteroids in this chart to simplify things.

GEORGE has LILITH at 10 degrees LEO opposite Jupiter in his 6th house, square to his NEPTUNE

He is seeking that totally independent strong woman who lies below no man and is free unto herself. Someone who is smart, in service, who he can have an intellectual relationship with {6th house virgo influence}.

But I included the Trans Neptunian object CUPIDO.

CUPIDO is as the name suggests. At 8 degree LIBRA in the house of marriage, relationships, fairness, the law, the go-between,opposite his natal Venus in Aries and trined by Jupiter in Aquarius.

SO WHY did he get engaged now?

on April 26 2014 when the news was announced what was happening?

THE GRAND CARDINAL CROSS of course.

URANUS is EXACTLY on George’s VENUS in ARIES- expect the unexpected in love.

JUPITER in CANCER in George’s 5th house of LOVE AFFAIRS- expanding family, home, emotions.

MARS RETROGRADE IN LIBRA in George’s 7th house of marriage-  very close to George’s CUPIDO

PLUTO in CAPRICORN is in his 11th house of change, wishes hopes and dreams.

GRAND CARDINAL CROSSES don’t have to be all bad. The sudden change can be a very good thing.

NEPTUNE has been sitting on George’s SOUTH NODE since he first met Amal

This is a past life connection. I am sure George KNEW it right away but played mum. Neptune is also opposite George’s Pluto in Virgo, soul mate territory and conjunct to his CHIRON. Amal is connected to this point I am sure of it. 

THE TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE OF APRIL 14 at 25 degrees LIBRA 

was in his 7th house of marriage and squaring his natal MOON, Saturn, and square his MARS, that definitely indicates a serious commitment as a marriage.

THE SOLAR ECLIPSE OF APRIL 28/29 at 8 degrees TAURUS

is conjunct to his SUN in TAURUS – shift in identity and opposite his natal NEPTUNE in Scorpio in the 8th and square to his JUPITER in Aquarius in the 12th. I think George  didn’t know what hit him all of a sudden. But it sure feels good.

I only know that Amal is 36 now. So she was born in 1978. There is no evidence of her actual birth date. 

OUTER PLANETS – URANUS was  between 12- 15 degrees SCORPIO that year. Saturn just crossed the latter degrees.

NEPTUNE at 16-18 degrees SAGITTARIUS. -Idealistic International lawyers.

PLUTO at 16-19 degrees LIBRA- the earlier degrees would be in the GRAND CARDINAL CROSS as well.

Saturn was at zero- 13 degrees VIRGO- NEPTUNE is opposite those early degrees.

JUPITER 29 degrees GEMINI- 17 degrees LEO- AMAL will have her most fertile JUPITER return this year.

Rumour is that they will wed in the Fall.  Jupiter enters LEO in late July..

CHILDREN?

MR. Clooney will be in full fertile fatherly mode as Jupiter hits his MArs in LEO and moves opposite his Jupiter and squares his Sun. I am sure Amal would love to start a family soon. We could be reading pregnancy stories within 6 months. 

Mr. Clooney is a #19  personality THE SUN, #10 extra hidden teacher- the wheel of FORTUNE, Soul number 1 -the MAGICIAN.

WISH THEM ALL THE BEST.

Do Jupiter and Saturn have diamond ‘rain’? Astronomy news

I think you need a little sparkling news, NO?

Do Jupiter and Saturn have diamond 'rain'?

Do Jupiter and Saturn have diamond ‘rain’?

Yes there is hyperinflation in space too. That news makes it way better than Pennies From Heaven.

To Tibetan Buddhists the DIAMOND MIND- not the diamond mine is a precious symbol. IT is what one wants to attain, a mind that is clear, many faceted, seeing in all the dimensions at once. Cutting through illusion.

Marilyn Monroe  immortalized the song “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend”

Wow Shine on you crazy diamonds. As an Astrologer the planets Jupiter raining diamonds fits nicely with Jupiter/Jove/ Zeus’s personality profile. Jupiter is expansive, royalty, positive. Jupiter does things on a big scale. Jupiter’s metal is TIN and  it rules the planets Sagittarius and Pisces traditionally.

But Saturn, Saturn rules the metal LEAD. So diamonds an expensive display would not be what immediately springs to mind. In ancient rulership Saturn rules Capricorn and Aquarius, which rules technology and diamonds are used in hi tech and commercial businesses. Saturn’s diamond’s would be more polished shall we say. Harder,stronger, serious ice.

I didn’t start out to write this tonight, as is often the case. I am led {lead} through synchronicity. I saw the article in the news and then…..

What do you think?
