Virgo Monday

It’s a very Virgo uptight, nitpicky Monday.

It is really HOT and humid here in SoCal, Venice Beach. I am on the 2nd floor, wide awake its 3:15 a.m. and too hot to sleep. I can hear Carole King singing Up On the Roof in my mind, like I used to hear it on hot sweltering nights when I was young. 

I’m stumped. I can’t really think of what I want to say and that’s unusual for me. Monday ain’t too bad although you always have to watch your P’s and Q’s  with a Virgo Moon.Moon is  busy tidying up. I mentioned the sextile to Mars in Cancer opposing Chiron in Pisces and sextiling Mercury in Cancer. as a great healing and communicating aspect.

also a difficulty quincunx from Moon with Uranus. 

don’t try any new fangled tech today. 

My Virgo South Node is double checking that I informed you of this info already right?

I do try dear readers to write something every day. I am also on Holiday and need to pick a new website template. My other older website is so old I may get the antique website award at this rate. 

I’m also thinking about Venus Retrograde with Saturn Retrograde, both highly personal planets from July 25-August 2nd. That 9 days will be very intense with many, many old relationships being tested.  

Uranus also turns Retrograde on the 26th {untill Christmas 2015} and then joins PLUTO, NEPTUNE, CHIRON, SATURN, VENUS and CERES apparently moving backwards. 

That’s a lot of backwards moving apparitions, more than usual at once. Some are personal some transpersonal, they have different nuances.

All I want for Christmas is a direct moving Uranus! 

The Uranian/Aquarian Retrograde makes it out with the old in with the new for sure. 

it’s exciting.

gotta go.

UP ON THE ROOF- Carole King

Saturn in Scorpio, submarine days, Tara Greene Astrology

Feeling rather awash myself emotionally tonight. Pisces Moon does that. The Sun, Moon, Mars, Saturn, Neptune and Chiron are all in water signs. These are submarine days.

Mercury enters CANCER July 8

that’ll be 6-7 planets underwater stirring up our emotional bodies. Note every time the Moon is in a water sign as this highlights the fluidity. Pisces moons make me cry. Do they bring up your tears? There is some heavy shit going down out there in the world.

Please NOTE the upcoming New Moon in Cancer July 15.

which will be INTENSIVELY intense. I will write about that and some ceremony to do. It is Martial, Plutonic, and we will be Scorpionically driven. check out if you have planets at 14-23- 28 degrees Water Cancer, Scorpio Pisces.

I am also really feeling Saturn’s influence tonight too. Saturn is death, old age, limitations, obstacles, testing, hardness, granite, lead, diamonds, contracts, serious, commitments, responsibility, time, the Devil, remember the card came up yesterday..  I never thought I would get old. We are all like that when we are in our ego mind. How capricious of me= Capricorn word, ruled by Saturn. As someone with lots of fire and air in my chart I tend to live a fire stoked up all the time. Fire is inspiration, spontaneous, combustible, passionate, driven, inspired. 

I was thinking that if you have lots of fire and air it is harder for you to get in touch with the emotions. Do you find this? Fire and Air signs I am talking to YOU>

Saturn has been Retrograde 3 weeks and 2 days now. How are you feeling? 

Too much pressure, not enough TIME. 

Saturn in Scorpio roots out the shadows and I am certainly feeling mine tonight. Saturn in Scorpio likes to be in control, wants the power. Notice how all the racism and homophobic and transgender shadows are out left right and center. The key is to go deep into the dark, mucky, mess. I think about Philip Guston one of my favorite painters as a heavy illustration of Saturn in Scorpio. Guston also painted Klu Klux Clan figures in many of his paintings. He was a victim of racism as a child as the immigrant son of Russian Jewish immigrants in the 1920’s in Los Angeles..  I think it’s the perfect Saturn Retrograde in Scorpio illustration.

After the coup in Chile he wrote, “Our whole lives (since I can remember) are made up of the most extreme cruelties of holocausts. We are the witnesses of the hell. When I think of the victims it is unbearable. To paint, to write, to teach in the most dedicated sincere way is the most intimate affirmation of creative life we possess in these despairing years.”

PAIN write, teach what you feel, the dark parts, the most hidden shadows, let them come out. James Hillman 

Moon enters ARIES July 7 @12:38 pm EDT and will burn off some of that heavy emotion. 

Mercury will be out of sorts with Saturn late in the day so watch your hasty words.

Inspirational Card of the Day- PEACE you can have it

Sorry I missed the daily card yesterday I did a short Astro article for you instead,

just to let you know your faithful astro writer is also subject to the same cosmic  frequencies we all are

 such as the Libra Moon square URANUS AND PLUTO yesterday.

An old girlfriend turned up who I hadn’t seen in years, and we had a great old Libra social catch up time

and it was very girly, Venus influenced, and then later our other friends from Venice Beach California

returned from a little Canadian site see,but I wasn’t expecting them back today to stay with us. It’s great though, we do this for each other. So you know I got a life too. I’m hoping that you will understand.

June 18 Inspirational Card is

2 of SWORDS
harmonious Tarot 2 of swords PEACE

THE HARMONIOUS TAROT

In the astrology correspondences with the cards this card is the MOON in LIBRA

which it is as of this writing!  Called PEACE in the Thoth TArot.

USually the card shows 2 swords, crossed,and an often blindfolded person holding them.

Libra is an AIR sign and Swords are the element of AIR.

Swords are mental focus, intent, discernment, can be daggers.

Libra is always focussed on RELATIONSHIPS. 

The Two’s are always about balance, polarity, choices, duality, couples, pairings, duo’s, mate’s,

symmetry, mirroring, twins. The #2 Trump is the High  Priestess, the Moon incarnate HERSELF.

MEANING

This card is all about choosing your Air/Mind/Thoughts/words carefully on order to obtain the balance

which is the much sought after PEACE. The fulcrum, the middle way.

Some Nice AIR TRINES today Moon in LIBRA to Sun and Jupiter in GEMINI- sign of the twins.

Compromise, the sum is more than the parts, choice to have peace, a truce, centered in what really counts- love.

PLEASE SHARE WIDELY

also please note  The Planetary aspects down below and their effects

LIVE FROM ISTANBUL: Today, after the Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s extremely sectarian, separatist, and fictious speech in Ankara, around 9 PM, the Turkish police began to attack thousands of people who were at the Gezi Park and Taksim square, having dinner. There are kids under 4-5 years old, mothers, and old people among those who were under gas and pressurised water attack. Acco…rding to reports, police doesn’t allow journalists to report or to take pictures from Gezi Park. They are also attacking with pressurised water business such as famous Divan Hotel that opened its doors to protestors running away from brutality. People are saying there are thousands of wounded inside of the hotel. People formed a human chain in front of the hotel to prevent police to attack. Another report says that people cannot leave the hotel because police is arresting whoever leaves. There are also unconfirmed reports that police shut down the metro and boats between Asia and Europe to stop people coming and joining the rest. Another report says that there is a jammer in the area to prevent TV stations’ broadcast. There are hundreds of wounded. There are a lot of missing kids, or kids who are separated from their families. Protestors are fighting with police. We need to send PEACE to ISTANBUL, as another police state crackdown is happening. 
Also 200,000 protesters in BRAZIL today. That’s the URANUS PLUTO SQUARE strengthening and it includes Edward SNOWDEN- the Pluto – spy, in the Capricorn Government- stealing, digital informtaion and freeing it in a new way- Uranus in Aries.
ALSO HAppy Birthday to PAUL MCCARTNEY- thanks Sir PAul for all the joy you have given through your talents and gifts to Millions.
