Don’t panic. NASA is wrong. There are only 12 signs.

This old misleading and blatant lying article about the 13th sign of Astrology is being revived again. The latest variation on the scientific public put down of Astrology came from a kids page of NASA- see link below.  NASA is about ASTRONOMY, it knows nothing about ASTROLOGY. This article is blatantly misleading. It was even covered in TIME  with even more lies. The ASTROLOGY community was never rocked in 2011 as they weren’t rocked when a few astronomers downgraded PLUTO from a planet. All Astrologers LOL when we see these articles because they understand how to work with and interpret the planets and signs. ASTRONOMERS should stick to what they do best. 
ASTROLOGY is having its biggest acceptance, come back and breakthroughs since the RENAISSANCE when the planets  were also aligned in the same positions as 500 years ago.  I think NASA is threatened. 
NASA is great for what it does, scientific research with the stars and planets. Astronomers  are way too arrogant and ignorant to do the research into the ancient origins of Astrology. Geez, these astronomers can’t even get their terminology correct! 
Astrology is actually a legal science in INDIA where almost 1 billion people follow their SIDEREAL constellation based horoscopes religiously. This most ancient of Astrology has 12 signs. It’s a different system than popular Western TROPICAL Astrology signs.  This one actually works with planets against the stars in real time. China has its own system of Astrology based on the 12 animals of the ZOODiac. 
Astrology and Astronomy were once part of the same science which also included doctoring. Each of the signs governs a different part of the body.
 Astrology signs and medicine Tara Greene

As far as we know the oldest recorded astrology comes from INDIA and is 12,000  years old and written about in their ancient scriptures.  Astrology/Astronomy is referenced all through the Bible very literally. In Judaism, the 12 tribes are the 12 constellations/signs. Jesus is the Light= the SUN. Mary his Mother= the Moon.  The 12 Apostles are the 12 Constellations and Zodiac signs. In Buddhism, the King’s astrologer predicted at Prince Gautama’s birth that he would be either a saviour or a great King.  All Royal courts had Astrologers who consulted for the King, Emperor, Sultan or Queen.  Elizabeth I has a well known court Astrologer, John Dee. 
Constellations are the origins of astrology signs but Astrology is divided into 12 ZODIAC signs of 30 degrees each making 360 degrees in a circle.  There are twelve months in the year in most modern calendars. The West uses Solar based, not Lunar based calendars as the Chinese, Jews, Muslims, Japanese and Hindu’s do for religious observations. The Mayans used a different calendrical system entirely and it was the most precise to modern reconning. But we won’t get into that now. 
The Ancient watched the Heavens since the beginning of human consciousness for thousands of years. We know innately that we come from the cosmos, that our home, heaven, or source is out there.
Following the Sun’s apparent path on the ecliptic, 12 constellations straddle that path. The 13th constellation, Ophiuchus is not entirely on the ecliptic so it was left out. There were 88 known and used constellations in the Ancient world. The constellations themselves vary in size widely. The Sun spends the longest time passing against the largest constellation of Virgo.
Yes, the Sun passes through the CONSTELLATION OPHIUCUS the serpent bearer, from November 29th- my Birthday -until December 17.  I would refer to myself as a SAGITTARIUS with strong connection to the Constellation Ophiucus and honor both. Ancient Astrology also used the FIXED STARS of the Constellations and I do include these to, interpreted through Western aSTROLOGY.  But Western Tropical Astrology is not sidereal based on CONSTELLATIONS at all but on the relationship of the SUN to the earth and our seasons. 
 
Yes at one time 2,160 years ago when Spring began in the northern Hemisphere, the sun arrived at zero degrees of the Constellation of ARIES.  Everything was perfectly lined up. But because of the PROCESSION of the EQUINOXES, the natural movement of the Constellations backwards through the signs once every 2,160 years, the Sun and the constellations have drifted apart. This was known in the Ancient world. A wonderful book was written about it called Hamlet’s Mill in the 1960’s. The SUN and the planets are actually about 23 degrees earlier than the Tropical signs now due to that procession. This is why NASA says no you are not a LEO your sign is really CANCER. Astrologers know this but it is irrelevant. 
This is what the ASTRONOMERS do not comprehend. Astrology does work, it works in traditional Vedic astrology, which marks the Sun, Moon and planets, Rahu and Ketu against the current Zodiacal constellations. Western Astrology also works but it is a much more symbolic, psychological, modern system which perfectly suits our times.
Statistics have shown that the influence of the Sun in the signs of the Zodiac accounts for the birth of unusual people during certain months. Insurance companies have done studies on this. It is well known that Full Moons affect people. Certain crimes have been found to correspond with zodiac signs in which the sun is moving during certain months of the year.
There are 24 hours in a day. Therefore it’s really pretty simple math to figure out why there is only and can ever be only 12 zodiac signs. So relax, you are not having to change your personality, likes, dating habits or anything. Sorry ASTRONOMERS you don’t know shit about astrology. We respect you, so have some respect for our craft.
Billions of people trust Astrology every day. I am proud to be an Astrologer and to be part of a growing team of qualified professionals whose intentions are to help every individual understand themselves psychologically, spiritually and practically and to understand life’s cycles as signified by the planets’ ever changing dance in the cosmos.

Heal your past, use dragon power byTara Greene

We are between two eclipses.  It is a liminal, twilight, transformative  space. We are now releasing the past with the Pisces South Node SOLAR ECLIPSE and moving towards a new future on the next Lunar eclipse March 23 in LIBRA.

Eclipses can only be created when the Sun and Moon are closely aligned to the North Node, called the DRAGON’s HEAD, from ancient Indian Astrology,called RAHU, and the South Node of the Moon, the DRAGON’S TAIL, called KETU. It is the dragon energy which create the eclipses. This is very, very ancient symbolism.

Game of Thrones, the incredibly popular HBO series, is full of ancient dragons. These archetypal symbols always attract us because of their deeper symbolism.

Game Of Thrones ,Daenerys Targaryen , Astrology

In Alchemy, the dragon biting it’s tail in either a circle or other formation is called the OUROBORUS.  It symbolizes wholeness, infinity, the cycles of time itself, the wheel of karma, the law of nature, the Phoenix rising eternally from its own ashes. In Ancient Egypt, China, India, Mayan, Aztec cultures all used this symbol which carried an  important religious and mythological Archetypal meaning

 

ouroboros, eclipse, Tara Greene

OURBOROS DRAGON ancient symbol of eternal life 

The Pisces South Nodal SOLAR eclipse, aligned with the dragon’s tail always refers to past life karma or old ingrained unconscious patterns. The SOUTH NODE eclipse in Pisces conjoined with CHIRON the Wounded Healer, allowing every one of  us to totally release that past, whether totally conscious or unconscious, and to let go, through tears, through emotional release, prayers, mantras and intentions- all that has chained us. 

Let all the old wounds and memories come up. I was remembering that I was not present when my mother and my father died. I never really grieved my mother’s death properly because of the timing of her death. Whatever old memories or the realization of old stuck energy patterns arise,  cry the pain out and let it go. Spend as much time as you can, releasing, stomping around, screaming, banging things, and letting go of old addictions, a PISCES theme. Especially with Venus entering Pisces March 12, there is more love, receptivity and emotional power to release Alcoholism, shopaholic, romantic projections, martyrdom, sex addictions, workaholism, these all can be healed. Shamans of the Yaqui lineage, the NAGUALS spend 7 years releasing their past memories in a breathing technique called Recapitulation. Yuo can accomplish this faster now. 

To do this.

Bring up all the emotion all the feeling: That emotional energy is the karmic glue, and is what releases it. Simply state  with great emotion. “I release all past habits and negative karmic patterns both conscious and unconscious now from within myself and for all time and places, past, present and future. “

Focus on being healed from your old karmic issues and in the process you are baptized and washed clean of all your “sins.” As you do this for yourself, you also heal the generational wounds, the sins of the fathers and the mothers. Be the witness who see the patterns, the compulsions and release yourself.

You are your own judge, jury and witness. Holy crap. I just totally GOT a dream I had many years ago. It had Bette Midler in it. And she was in the news today telling Kim Kardashian off for posing nude. wow fascinating. Thank you. It is also like the symbol of JUDGEMENT #20 in the TAROT where the ANGEL Gabriel blows the trumpet on Judgement day and the dead rise again. 

The NORTH NODE, the DRAGON’s HEAD always represents what we are aspiring to, where we are going. The LUNAR ECLIPSE March 23 comes three or four days after the SPRING EQUINOX the major turning point and the true beginning of the year. 

A Lunar eclipse directly affects our emotions, it is a FULL MOON, a completion cycle, a communion time. 

The Lunar Eclipse at 3+ degrees LIBRA is actually inconjunct to the star that symbolizes the Archangel Gabriel. Fomalhaut at 3 degrees PISCES Tropical. This is a challenge for us but one that means connecting the emotions and the mind, the head and the heart.

Zero point reset, North/South Nodes, dragons

The Lunar Nodes, the points where the Moon intersects with the Sun’s path repeats at the same degree every 18 years.  These Nodes, also called the Dragon’s Head and Tail are what’s responsible for creating eclipses. Yes that’s right. If you were interviewing the twins, the North and South Node of the Moon and asked them what they did. They’d say ” We create eclipses.”  

The Lunar Nodes tara Greene Astrology

 

The SOUTH Node of the Moon, called KETU/ the Dragon’s tail from traditional Vedic Astrology, symbolizes and magnetically draws us into our collective karmic past. The South Node will be transiting the SUPER POWERFUL ZERO ARIES POINT now, exact on September 11, 9/11 and throughout September. The South Node will be stationed there until November 11, Remembrance Day. 11/11 the Archetypal Gateway.  

Rahu and Ketu Lunar Nodes astrology

How the North and South nodes work

The NORTH NODE of the Moon, { the Dragon’s Head, called RAHU  in Vedic Indian Astrology } where we need to evolve towards,will be conjunct to the Zero degree LIBRA POINT, the karmic balancing point, the sign of Karmic Justice, the new equal partnership sign at the same time.

These two points, symbolize the ALPHA, {Aries} beginning and the OMEGA, {Libra} ending of everything and of course affects the seven billion humans on this planet. “I am the Beginning and the end.”

The Aries point is the Archetypal BIG BANG ignition point. The degree where LIGHT, the word, AUM, exploded out of the Void of sheer potential darkness. In the beginning…

The South Node of the Moon symbolizes the collective unconscious past and all the emotions connected to it, the karmic ties that bind. Connected to the Aries South Node symbolizes very literally, the collective past of humanity’s unconsciousness and emotions being released to create an entirely new beginning, a new Big Bang, a new Consciousness. 

The North Node at zero degrees Libra, coincides with the Autumn Equinox Northern Hemisphere/ Spring Equinox  Southern Hemisphere when the Sun is on the Equator. The Sun is in an equal balance to the earth. The stories of the “Golden Age” when there was no winter relate to a time before the earth was tilted at its present 23+ degrees which creates the seasonal changes. 

For me this harkens also to a time of a Golden Age being reborn. That fairness, and equal rights which LIBRA symbolizes means equality between women and men, equality and respect between all persons and all relationships.

Libra is the scale of Ma’at’, The Ancient Egyptian Goddess who, weighed the heart of a deceased person against her ostrich feather diadem. In life our hearts need to be light as a feather.  No worries, no regrets, peace, balance, harmony, beauty, creativity. 

Libra is also Judgement, literally Judgement Day and yes many Christians and Jews are aware of the Shemitah year, the Blood Moons and this eclipse season. 

Speaking of Judgement Day, years ago I did an art performance, in 1977 for a multi-media art event called The JUDGEMENT DAY BURLESQUE. This was a concept of Tom Dean, a Canadian artist. In my earlier incarnation as an artist, he and I worked together creating some of the posters and co-ordinating artists for the events. 

http://ccca.concordia.ca/cv/english/dean-cv.html 1977 Judgement Day Burlesque, parade, events, and exhibit at A Space, Toronto.

One poster I created showed Fred Astaire and Ginger Rodgers dancing atop an Atomic Bomb mushroom cloud.

Just thinking about Judgement Day. No matter what it looks like in the world. Just keep spinning and dancing gracefully like Fred and Ginger, in the cosmic flow. 

Stay very focussed on your spiritual goals. Remember that the end point is near, literally. Release and release and release until you are emptied. This is a karmic purging. 

Listen to you higher self.

I am listening to mine and am being called to be in Sedona again to hold space. I am not sure exactly how this series of meditations will unfold exactly. I have to listen in the moment. 

Spirit to be calling me to hold the space for others who don’t necessarily have to be present with me. The same way I do readings for clients all over the world who I’ve never met as in long-distance healing.

If you’d like to tune in participate in ceremonies and have me send prayers and blessings and include you in virtual ceremony or for someone else that you love. I am doing these on these specific dates. 

What happens during a ceremonial sacred ritual?

I create sacred space. Smudging, cleansing, calling in the 8 directions at a sacred spot. I pray to the elements, the planets, the Angels, and directions. I  use my ceremonial shamanic drum, I chant, offer tobacco and cornmeal as is traditional. Each ceremony is tailored to each date to synchronize with the planets and stars. These ceremonies usually take 90 minutes or longer and I am guided by spirit. I call out your name or those you love into the circle for healing, cleansing, abundance, health, joy and to receive Divine love. 

PARTICIPATE IN VIRTUAL CEREMONIES 

If you’d like to tune in participate in ceremonies and have me send prayers and blessings and include you in virtual ceremony or for someone else that you love. I am doing these on these specific dates. 

Send me an email with short description of who you are and what you wish to work on. I can also help guide you.  All information is strictly confidential.

 CREATION DREAM  – Bruce Cockburn 1979 

Air Trines, Gemini “talk to the wind”

The Bull transforms into Twins as the Moon enters GEMIINI Jan 28 @ 2:36 pm PST/5:36 pm EST/ 10:36 pm GMT 

That double talking, two-faced Gemini energy makes love difficult, as

Moon squares Venus in Pisces @ 5:57 pm PST

then the windy Moon opposes Saturn in Sagittarius

and watch your words as Gemini energy gets us into some big serious trouble for being double timing liars. 

Jan 29 

Your head will be in a whirl as Gemini Moon makes 7 aspects in typical Gemini flit around fashion.

Yes Gemini flirts flits and flies around making three heavy squares,

and Gemini hates the HEAVIES!

the first is to NEPTUNE in Pisces

Was that a dream or was it real? Was I a butterfly dreaming I was a person or? I believe what I think…

the 2nd is Moon square MARS in Pisces

Do you have dysfunctional anger lurking just below the surface of your first exit plan? 

3rd. Moon Squares Chiron in Pisces

Lets talk about where it hurts, and how it hurts, nah it don’t hurt.

Besides those three toughies

there is a GRAND AIR TRINE

I don’t remember a grand air trine in a long time. Do you?

Gemini MOON trines Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius and the SUN too!

Retro Mercury rules Gemini { and Virgo} so it’s a real THROWBACK Thursday,

 its’ sunny Upbeat, lofty, whooshy.

Inspirational Card of the Day

pinup girl Astrology Tara Greene

Rethink, rehash, rewind, review and rework those brilliant light bulbs of inspiration. 

Moon also makes a sweet little sextile to Uranus. Sound ticklish. It’s easy to get away with weirdness.

Gemini Moon also quincunxes PLUTO 

and everyone knows {except you} that you never mess around with Pluto, Lord of the Dead.

So be very careful.  I know you think you can fly off on your winged sandals with your silver tongue talk and never have to face the consequences…but watch it!

Mercury, your ruling Planet is Retrograde. 

Oh right. Vedic astrologers say planets are at their strongest when Retrograde because they appear larger.  Western Astrologer says A planet is weak when moving Retrograde.

Whatever mischief  this Gemini Moon energy brings will be short lived of course. Peeps with strong Gemini planets  can easily back out of it when Mercury goes direct. You knew that. 

Some interesting energies coming up Friday.
