Spiritually grounded serious Christmas

Merry Christmas. 

Christmas Eve and Day are mostly in synch with a spiritual compassionate PISCES MOON. The Age of Christianity approximately 2017 years old symbol is the Fish or more correctly the Fishes- PISCES. All Ages are governed by the Sun’s 2160 year passing through each Constellation.  

Enjoy going with the PISCES flow.

The 24th

the MOON trines MARS in the wee hours in PST EST and early morning GMT.

This may enhance dreams of adventure war explosions sexuality and macho energies.

MOON conjuncts NEPTUNE its ruling planet in the a.m. 

A very dreamy emotional sensitive Christmas. This energy enhances psychic sponge energies. If you are visiting family and have uncomfortable issues around boundaries better get your shields up now. You need psychic protection to protect and ground yourself. 

Moons squares MERCURY in SAGITTARIUS

Getting lost or distracted while on the road may be an issue to be aware of. Be careful about discussing politics. 

WATER TRINE of MOON and JUPTER in SCORPIO

 Pisces Moon conjuncts charitable Neptune and trines JUPITER planet of optimism and expansion. Be kind give to those who really need help. Be careful with alcohol or other drug consumption and Be sure to get your psychic shields up.

Moon sextiles PLUTO in CAPRICORN

This is grounding energy. Beware of the family shadows of the ancient karmic baggage which inevitably reveals its head. Major power struggles and secrets may be revealed unconsciously.

DECEMBER 25 

VENUS enters CAPRICORN @ 9:26 pm PST December 25 @ 12:26 am EST and 5:26 am GMT until January 17, 2018 8:43 PM EST. 

Venus changes from cowgirl gypsy teacher outfit to standard conservative all business suit. Love and values become much more mature, serious, committed, all business with long-term goals. 

While Venus in Capricorn love is  practical. “Just the facts ma’am.”  Eat goaty things while Venus is in GOAT territory! It’s good for you.

LOVE is SERIOUS BUSINESS, and very real during this short period. Not so much airy fairy romantic or intense emotional stuff now. Venus in Capricorn wants to see your bank balance and your credit rating. It’s KARMIC LOVE, often with a much older person as Capricorn is ruled by SATURN. Long term engagements may occur.

 

Venus in Capricorn symbolizes receiving love for the job you love to do and how you shine brightest in the world through your career.

ARE YOU? DO YOU? YOU must re-evaluate your success story, from that standpoint.

What you do for a living must be  what you love to do.

Venus is the EMPRESS in the Tarot. Capricorn is THE DEVIL {SATURN} in the Tarot Trumps. 

She’s a Devil in disguise with a blue dress on.  VENUS rules money, the economy, your earnings and spendings, self-worth, values, luxury. Capricorn is conservative, blue chip, Old boys club.

Check out where CAPRICORN is in your natal chart. That’s where the Love light will be shining.

My husband has Venus in Capricorn {our daughter does too}. He is very responsible. V in C people show love by taking care of all the practical details for you, they are totally reliable.  They will get to their goals as they have infinite patience. Usually they are very career oriented and make lots of money because status counts.

All earth signs are blessed during these times. Especially Venus ruled TAURUS. LIBRA ruled Venusians may find these times challenging as they are being prodded by the square to be more real. Water signs benefit from sextiles.

ARIES and CANCER get the square and opposition. Many choices to make in Love, investments and the job.

VENUS CONJUNCTS SATURN exact Christmas DAY @ 9:55 am PST/ 12:55 pm EST/ 1:55 pm GMT.

Very serious commitments can be made right now. Declare your commitments long term to yourself  or to another.

The Sun Venus + SATURN are within 3 degrees + Lilith @ 5 degrees CAPRICORN

This is a very heavy duty karmic influence. All babies born now carry this incredible heavy weightedness. These are the power feminists of the future who will rebuild the world with earthy feminine values 28 years from now. 

 Venus in Capricorn going in to 2018 bodes much for women breaking through in corporate structure politics and bringing feminine values.

THE MOON enters fiery ARIES @ 4:27 pm PST/ 7:27 pm EST/ Dec. 26 @ 12:27 am GMT

MOON squares SATURN And VENUS 

Tensions will rise about duty loyalty love commitments values women and sentimentality. The Aries moon makes people tend to be IMPATIENT and argumentative. There is a more traditional versus inventive feminist independent energy.

HAVE A MERRY CHRISTMAS

Sun conjunct Lilith trine Chiron, compassion for the shadows.

The Sun has been conjunct to Mean LILITH is Scorpio the last couple of days and is now separating.

Lilith,Goddess of death, Astrology, Tara Greene

Lilith is the Dark Goddess, the rejected shadow feminine side of the Goddess who is the natural counterpart to the birth giving, unconditionally loving Mother Goddess who is called the Shekinah. Both are absolutely necessary archetypal parts of God/the Light’s dual Feminine side as outlined in the Kabbalah. Lilith is like KALI and is the destructing part of nature. Destruction and death are the opposite poles which balance life and rebirth. 
We can see these qualities coming up very strongly in the past couple of days. The collective shadows of racism, misogyny, and xenophobia and of all of our shadows that have been rejected by us, are now coming up fully into the light. Which is good, when shadows are hidden they are operating unconsciously. Better the devils you know than the ones that you don’t. Any “holier-than-thou spirituality, religion or belief- system has its shadow. This is simply a balance. These shadows may appear to be pretty ugly, dangerous, life-threatening, devouring, evil and are thus rejected. No matter how light, good,or religious, you think you are you have a dark shadow which appears outside of yourself as an “other” but that “other” is still an aspect of yourself. It is in allowing, an opening up to and asking, “what is the positive intention of this shadow aspect?” can it be healed. Shadows are always wounded aspects of ourselves.  My old teacher Stuart Wilde used to say you must fight the demons/shadows but with love. The light does not fight the dark directly. Wwe must be careful of the polarization that is so strong now.

Especially with LILITH in Scorpio, the themes of revenge, power and control, secrets,and obsessions are fuelling all the rage from both sides.  Young millennials are starting riots to protest Trumps misogyny. Hate graffiti, KKK meetings and white supremacy graffiti is appearing. That is all horrific.

We must honor Lilith for speaking her truth and refusing to be dominated sexually by Adam because iwe are all meant to be equal. Use Lilith’s energy to fight and defend yourself against tyranny.

VENUS is at the last degree of SAGITTARIUS today where her love beauty and passion are fused with SAGE wisdom. She reminds us to Love the Truth, to love freedom, love searching for higher wisdom, intelligence and embodying our own spiritual quest through self-knowledge and through love.

Venus enters CAPRICORN tonight. Where she is earthy hard working, focussed on the goals of women climbing to the tops of the mountains. 

MERCURY enters the last critical degrees of SCORPIO today

The mirror of Venus being at the last critical degree of Sagittarius and Mercury being at the last degree of Scorpio reminds us to analyze our current thoughts from the depths of our psyches. Mercury in Scorpio gives us X-Ray vision to see through all the illusions, to see bravely to the roots of the darkest darkness and to find the light in the dark. This is all good, better to see the shadows than to be ignorant, in denial or caught unawares.

Mercury enters SAGITTARIUS Nov.12th@ 6:40 am PST/ 9:40 am. EST/2:40 pm GMT.

Our thinking and communications must be bottom line honesty even if it hurts other people’s feelings. I know Jupiter is in LIBRA, so we may be able to watch out tongues before we put our hooves in our mouths.

 Inspirational CARD OF THE DAY
THE HERMIT
Jusepe de Ribera Saint Paul the Hermit

Jusepe de Robera Saint Paul the Hermit # 9 in the Tarot

THE HERMIT

Don’t be afraid to be alone. The symbol of the Hermit is to have enough time alone to truly know oneself. A very important stage before entering in any relationship. #9 is the last stage in the journey before the new beginning, symbolized by the #1 the Magician can start.

The Hermit is really all about listening to your own inner Light. in the Tarot, Trump #9 is usually shown as an old man with a beard in profile holding up a lamp. The Hermit also gives protection. The Inner Light is your own SOUL, your Higher Self. The Hermit is also associated with the sign of VIRGO.

has qualities of modesty, hard work, service to others, can be perfectionist too.

INTROSPECTION – MGMT – 2013  

All By Myself – Eric Carmen

Leo Big CATS Drama weekend- Tarot Astrology from Tara Greene

It’s an ALL LEO, BIG CATS DRAMA MOOD ALL WEEKEND!!!!

Moon’s in Leo. Sign of the actor, King/Queen of the jungle. Big Partying, big hearted, strong  willed, childlike, show offs. We love to watch those LIONS preen, purr, strut and  pounce; in their pride, wearing their bling, showing off. Big Kittens at heart.

You know CATS are the most watched thing on YOUTUBE right.

There are 4 quincunxes- between the FELINE Moon- these are aspects in need of translators, go- betweens, peace makers.

Big Cat Moon quincunx # 1 is to Neptune already happened- ego and spirit are off kilter or kittener.

Sat. Nov 23 #2. Moon is Q. to Chiron in Pisces around noon- easily bruised sensitive Pisces types don’t stand a chance.

#3 Moon is Q. to Pluto in Capricorn mid afternoon

be careful whose feathers you ruffle. Unless you can hold your own with the big boys then don’t play that way. All pomp and no substance?

Sun. # 4 Leo Moon is Q. to Venus in Capricorn –

Passionate hot hearted/ cold hearted contact in the love business department. You can use it to fulfill those Venus’ business advantage perks.  Butter up the boss, stash a bonus away to spurge on something expensive. Leo is too dramatic for Venus in Capricorn, who may be revulsed at the gauche show.  Pick a more receptive time or audience.

Leo Moon trines Uranus early on Nov.23

Unexpected love gift. You wake up to a marimba band serenading you outside your window or an unexpected gift from a secret admirer… Sounds interesting. Stay open to serendipity.

VENUS in Capricorn SEXTILES SATURN in Scorpio Nov. 23

This one softens up the hard hearted all business coldness. Is there someone you like on the job? You may hear about it now. Keep your ears open for secret information. Bonnie and Clyde aspect, partners in crime.

Here is a helper. Wrathful Tibetan DAKINI,lioness headed Simhamukha. She  protects against PSYCHIC ATTACKS.

Tibetan DAkini wrathful

SIMHAMUKHA wrathful Lion headed Goddess protects against PSYCHIC ATTACKS

Standing  on a 6 pointed star or Merkhaba. You may want to call upon her whenever you need.

LEO Moon squares MERCURY in Scorpio  at night

Secret lovers, whispered desires. You can open your heart, but it may all be an act. Be sure you can trust the one you tell. Watch out for ruthlessness Wolves in Lions clothing.

LEO MOON SQUARES SATURN Nov. 24 middle of night

Hard cold reality, heart-break. But there may be some whose hearts are pure and true. Super hero rescuers. Gotta have faith.

Tarot card guidance:  I chose the 8 of Wands, here are two versions of the same card.

The MAry- el Tarot                                                                THOTH TAROT 

Tarot Tara Greene                                        Thoth Tarot Tara Greene

The Mary El Tarot  shows the LION protecting the innocent child, it feels deep and heartfelt.

THE THOTH TAROT is Mercury in SAGITTARIUS and much more upbeat and detached. The RAINBOW is always a symbol of HOPE from Heaven. Be optimistic. Sagittarius always aims higher.

So listen to the Lioness in you heart. She has courage, she fiercely protects the inner child. CAll upon her. She was worshipped in Egypt as SEKHMET,the eye of RA,  in India as Durga, Astarte in Canaanite. Also called Senge Dong-ma a lion headed Dakini.

LISTEN TO THE LION VAN MORRISON 

WONDERING WHERE THE LIONS ARE – Bruce Cockburn 1979 

November Astrology,Venus in Capricorn from Tara Greene

November Astrology Forecast

Starting out with a big Bang with the 4th EXACT square between URANUS and PLUTO at 9 degrees + Aries/ Capcriocn.

That little event keeps rockin and reverberating until the next exact square April 21, 2014.

MERCURY  CONJUNCTS THE SUN moving Retrograde November 1st also at 9 degrees SCORPIO.

These two events underscore each other as the Consciousness value of SUN + MERCURY RETRO in SCORPIO is the DARK night of the SOUL aspect  the Night Sea journey,the twilight zone, void, Liminal LIMBO space. This is territory ruled by Pluto and Mars. The LIGHT of consciousness is in  Quincunx to Uranus and sextile to Pluto. The old new dichotomies still have some kinks and snags to work out.

WE NEED to think in ways we haven never even imagined before. Imagine that.

The SCORPIO SOLAR ECLIPSE NOV 3 is hybrid. Indicating literally, a new type of masculine solar consciousness and feminine lunar consciousness.

November 4th is an easy lite aspect day. Moon enters Sagittarius 12:14 pm PST

Moon squares Neptune in Pisces- stay in imaginative mode.

NOVEMBER 5 VENUS ENTERS CAPRICORN and stays there until March 5/6  of 2014.
