Mardis Gras Vesta and Parentalia Feb. 13

Happy Mardis Gras

It is also an Ancient Roman Festival called the Parentalia which means “ancestral days.” It was a nine-day festival held in honor of family ancestors, beginning on 13 February. It involved VESTA.

Vesta Roman Priestess Astrology Tara Greene

From Wikipedia

The Parentalia was a Roman religious calendar Holiday its observances were mainly domestic and for families. The importance of the family to the Roman state, however, was expressed by public ceremonies on the opening day, the Ides of February, when a Vestal Priestess conducted a rite for the collective di parentes of Rome at the tomb of Tarpeia.

Ovid describes sacred offerings of flower-garlands, wheat, salt, wine-soaked bread and violets to the “shades of the dead” (Manes or Di manes) at family tombs, which were located outside Rome’s sacred boundary. These observances were meant to strengthen the mutual obligations and protective ties between the living and the dead, and were a lawful duty of the paterfamilias (head of the family). Parentalia concluded on 21 February in the midnight rites of Feralia, when the paterfamilias addressed the malevolent, destructive aspects of his Manes.

Feralia was a placation and exorcism: Ovid thought it a more rustic, primitive and ancient affair than the Parentalia itself. It appears to have functioned as a cleansing ritual for Caristia on the following day, when the family held an informal banquet to celebrate the amity between themselves and their benevolent ancestral dead. The emphasis on collective cult for the Manes and early di parentes implies their afterlife as vague and lacking individuation. In later cult they are vested with personal qualities, and in Imperial cult, they acquire divine numen and become divi, divine entities.”-see link below

I am thinking about VESTA meaning the Virgin  in LATIN the fourth Asteroid to be discovered She is #4 known for the Priestess who kept the eternal flame burning in Ancient Rome. Vesta in your natal or in an event chart symbolizes Fire focus dedication Kundalini Tantric energy activations. The root word VESTA is the source of our money making in our inVESTment Portfolios. She is a super important powerful goddess and all investments are governed by her.

Where is she now?

Today she is at 13 degrees SAGITTARIUS squaring NEPTUNE in PISCES

and closely conjunct to MARS in SAGITTARIUS

This aspect is the perfect WTF is going on with Cryptocurrencies or the world of Finance these days or the entire messy world we are witnessing these days. Neptune in PISCES is the world of delusion illusion projection scam artists and debt. So do be very very careful these days.  A lot of people have been scammed by the Bitcoin wagon of dreams. “All that glitters is not real.” 

Stay focused on your own internal wisdom. Vesta protects the home fires. Make sure your first priority is that.

Vesta is conjunct the GREAT ATTRACTOR at 14 degrees SAGITTARIUS 02

Focus on what you really want to attract now.

VESTA will conjunct the Great Attractor on the Feb 15 Solar Eclipse with Mars 2 degrees behind her at 12 degrees SAGITTARIUS.

Mars and Vesta meet up on Feb. 25 @ 18+ degrees SAGITTARIUS.

Do you know where your Natal VESTA is?

If you have planets or angles there mark that date done as an auspicious day to do ceremony.

999 Triple Hermit Journey begins

September 9, 2016 =999 in #NUMEROLOGY.
This is also the day that JUPITER enters LIBRA for over a year
and its in the middle of 2 eclipses!!! One in Virgo and one in PISCES.
Triple 9 is three HERMITS in the TAROT #9 
The Hermit Tara Greene psychic tarot card reader
             The Hermit Tarot tara GreeneHERMIT tarot Virgo Tara Greene
The Hermit is VIRGO energy, and indicates a turning within, an introverted time of learning to listen to the inner light, which is symbolized by the lamp held up by the Hermit to light our way in the dark. The  HERMIT is a real grounded guardian angel, his Lamp brings safety in the dark. He holds the spark of Light of spirit.
Virgo is the 6th sign, ruled by Mercury the messenger. It is the sign of service, of details, of ordering, analysis, intellectual, memory, humility, budgeting, work, community and pets. Usually, accountants, natural health doctors, chiropractors, nutritionists, herbalists, aromatherapists, pharmaceuticals,chemists, Homeopathic, ayurvedic, yoga teachers, physical trainers, doulas and the like are Virgo professions.
Virgo is earthy and rules the harvest, food, storing it, reaping what you have sown, surviving on what you have created. 
VIRGO 
Governs Baghdad, Brazil, Croatia, Greece, Jerusalem, Los Angeles, Lyon, France,Moscow, Paris, Switzerland, Turkey, Uruguay, and Washington D.C.
Virgo and PISCES have a connection as do all opposites. Virgo is where we bring spirituality down to earth, in the details, in the every day, in the chop wood, carry water. The Vestal Virgins and the Constellation of Virgo is one of the oldest. Virgin means whole and complete unto Herself, belonging to no man. To be virgin is to be untouched, unblemished, whole, innocent, pure. The Goddess could renew her virginity again and again, in fact, every month she symbolically did this. Virginity had nothing to do with sexuality originally. 
How can you make yourself VIRGIN, whole and complete, shiny and new, in the world again? 
What do you serve? Do you pay lip service?  Is your work your spiritual service? Is it “right livelihood?” as the Buddhists call it? How can you realign your spiritual path and earn money?
The HERMIT usually gives away all his worldly possession, he goes seeking and values the inner light, his inner gut instinct truth. What do you really need to possess? What is of lasting value?  This will be a time of shedding excess, cleaning up our acts on all levels, especially with the environment our eating habits and taking responsibility for our own health care. 
THE HERMIT is a loner. For many people being alone is very scary, especially women. Learning to love your own company is a very good lesson to learn from this triply Hermetic time. To really be ready to have a conscious relationship you need to be Virgin, whole and complete within yourself, male or female and not need to be with anybody.
The Hermit is HERMES, the thrice great teacher, and messenger, consciousness itself, symbolized by planet Mercury. Mercury will be RETROGRADE on SEPTEMBER 9th so this may be a real RETHINK time on all levels. MERCURY in the TAROT is the #1 card and follows the triple 9’s. At the end of 2016,  2017 is a Number 1 Year, a magical YEAR where our intention is everything.  The irony is as JUPITER leaves VIRGO he enters LIBRA on the 9/9/9 day.  Use the rest of 2016 to finish up.
MERCURY in the TAROT is the #1 card and follows the triple 9’s.

Mercury will also be RETROGRADE for a 4th time this year as we go into 2017.  
 
999 is A triple completion, triple perfection, triple endings.
What do you need to perfect and complete?  
Prepare for this date as a major turning point in 2016.

2016, the Hermit year, seeking wisdom

2016 is a Universal # 9 year.  2+ 0+ 1+ 6 = 9.

Nine is a magic number, no matter how many times it is multiplied it will always reduce to itself. 

The number nine symbolizes completion, fulfillment, attainment, beginning and end, perfection,

3 x 3, a Triple Triad, a Feminine number, there are nine months of human gestation. 

#9 is an incorruptible number. It’s a celestial and Angelic number. There are nine muses.  

In Chinese symbolism:  it signifies Celestial power, It also signifies the 8 sacred directions in Feng-shui with the center as the ninth point as in the Hall of Light. 

#9 symbolizes Pure Intelligence in the Kabbalah. It reproduces itself when multiplies. It is like a hologram. 

In Hinduism: The number of Agni God of Fire. The square of the nine forms, and the mandala of 81 squares leads to, and encloses the Universe.

Scandinavian Mythology  Odin/ Woden hung for nine days and nights on the World Tree, Yggdrasil to win the secrets of wisdom for mankind. {Odin is also the Hanged Man Trump #12 in the Tarot}.

Celtic: A central number of 8 directions and the ninth being the center. Three triple Goddesses. 

Pythagorean: the Limit of numbers, all others existing and revolving within it. 

Tibetan Buddhist and Catholic rosaries or malas all contain 108 beads, 9 x 12. 

In the Tarot the Trump #9 is The Hermit

The Hermit’s symbol, traditionally features an old bearded wise man  in profile, a Sage holding up a lamp in the dark. The Hermit’s association to Virgo suggests that the LIGHT of wisdom is to be found in our bodies, in our guts, on the material plane, which is Virgo’s element. 

What is a Hermit? Like the crab, who retreats into its own shell, a Hermit needs to be alone, to seek spiritual wisdom which can only come from listening to one’s Higher Self. A Hermit is someone who surrenders to the call of Spirit, {Pisces} the opposite sign to Virgo. Hermits need to gives up their worldly possessions, symbols of ego attachment in order to be unencumbered for the inner  journey, symbolized as a cave, seeking spiritual enlightenment to feel complete. This it the highest archetype to embody during 2016.

The Hermit is a very powerful Archetype in all the worlds’ major religions. Moses, the Buddha, Jesus and Mohammed all had solitary Vision Quests, some in caves, when they became enlightened.

To embody The Hermit’s energies this year, we will absolutely need to have a regular spiritual discipline. Daily mindful meditations are recommended. Yoga is good as a spiritual path first, a physical path second. Being in nature and tending to natures preservation is also a way to embody the Hermit Energy. Focussing on the body as a sacred Temple of the Soul is also a very important component. You are what you eat. Eating consciously as a spiritual path will also be in vogue. No more selfies, humility is the name of the game. 

In the Kabbalah the #9 is the 9th Sephirah, called Yesod, meaning Foundation. The Hermit is related to the Path of Yod the first and last letter of G*d’s ineffable name. It symbolizes the point of origin of our manifest universe in direct contact with the Divine Source of all Light. It symbolizes the Astral Light, Akashic fluids or Kundalini energy, the storehouse of images. It’s related to the Moon and the Pineal gland.  Its attributes are incense and the demarcation of sacred ground in ritual.

The Hermit seeks to follow spirit by being in service to others.  

Virgo is associated with:  Work, service, perfection, healing, health, discipline, accountability, intelligence, the body,  grassroots community, budgets, digestion, natural foods, small domestic pets and animals, the Army, chemists, Pharmaceuticals, craftsmen, dairies, gardens, herbs, illness, mathematics,nutrition,  poultry, psychiatrists, Red Cross, charities. 

PLACES:  Assyria/Syria, Baghdad, Basel, Switzerland, Brazil, Boston, the Congo, Croatia, Greece, Jerusalem, Los Angeles, Lyon, France, Moscow, Russia and Turkey.

NOTE: Jupiter is transiting Virgo for the first eight months of 2016 and expands all of these Virgo areas.

An earth sign, Virgo is the Virgin Goddess who governs the harvest. She is like Ceres/Demeter. The Harvest is also a symbol of karma as in what you sow so shall you reap. What we are reaping is what we have sown.  2016 is a year of focussing on the earth, the environment, preserving, healing and serving Mother Earth. We saw many world-wide organizations rally to help heal the environment now that we realize what damage mass consumer culture and the gluttony and addiction to cheap fossil fuels has done to the earth. 

Virgo governs workaholism. The mood will shift to working more efficiently and holistically. The need to be more focussed on being in more natural seasonal work schedule is coming. People are seeing their lives eaten up by the Internet and will need time in nature to be balanced and healthy. 

MONSANTO and GMO foods will be a major issue in 2016 as Virgo is the Harvest. Monsanto is trying to rule the world by controlling Food production, literally the harvest. By making death seeds,  which cannot reproduce naturally Monsanto and the other conglomerates’ control who will eat and who will starve. Eating GMO foods disrupts the body’s natural digestion. The body was not designed to eat tomatoes with fish genes in them or GMO’d pasta which is causing much of the gluten intolerance, and I believe is also linked to autism.  Virgo/the Hermit is intelligent and can connect the dots. Virgo is ruled by Mercury, symbol of communication and consciousness. The mind/body connection will be seen as so common sense and self-evident. People will Get it. 

Many people will choose to give up their jobs and worldly possession to simplify their lives, work less, and live on less in this year. 2016 will be a year of budget cuts, belt-tightening and accountability. The market is set to crash. Those who know how to thrive with less will do the best. 

Yes for VIRGO peeps it is their BIG YEAR in so many ways. Virgo is a mutable sign and with Saturn in Sagittarius and Neptune in Pisces, there is a Trinity of Mutability. This bring huge benefits, in the practical and spiritual worlds, much adaptability and tests. 

The Symbol of the Virgin Goddess is also a sign of the DIVINE FEMININE becoming stronger and more manifest in the world and in the culture. Virgin originally meant “whole and complete unto herself, belonging to no man.” She was originally parthenogenic, reproducing herself without a male. This is the original Goddess and woman as a free, independent, intelligent, strong, benevolent, loving, and nurturing being. Her attributes of renewal are also a very strong symbol that Nature can be renewed using natural means. The herbs which the earth provides are the best. Using non-toxic remedies to heal will be the mode of choice.  

Nature/Mother Earth/ The Virgin Goddess/ the # 9, are all symbols of hope and renewal and being like a Virgin, innocent, open, trusting, purified and healed. A return to Innocence. I feel this will be a very positive year, very different in tone from the last three years of Cardinal energies.

We are bringing to a conclusion what we began in 2007, the last #9 cycle, 9 years ago.  2017 will begin a brand new cycle. 

We will be drinking Love Potion #9 when we don’t feel like being all alone. I never thought I’d be saying that Madonna’s first hit “Like a Virgin” would also be the Anthem of 2016 but it fits perfectly.

MONEY CAN’T BUY IT- Annie Lennox 1992 

Make the 1% accountable Venus Trine Pluto

Oct. 23  Venus trines Pluto for the 2nd time this year @ 13 + degrees Virgo /Capricorn 12:43 am PDT/ 3:43 am EDT/

Yes, the Yoniverse is benevolent, so If you didn’t cash in the first time, you get a second chance now!

Earth Trine, Tara Greene Astrology

Johannes Hevelius, 1673

This is  good energy between earthly feminine love and earthly soul power riches.You could call it a rags to riches aspect. 

A nice combo between what the servants earn {VIRGO}  and the top 1% PLUTOCRACY make. Venus in Virgo will get the numbers straight and make the 1% accountable.

Venus in Virgo is a grassroots women’s movement to improve food, water, basic earthly life, for all humans. In a trine to Pluto trine this lends this weight, strength, long term mountain climbing to the goals patience. 

This aspect is also a literal accountability of harvesting our own organic food and corporate big business of Monsanto’s Plutocracy, lies and power and control. 

To a grassroots Venus in Virgo this is fantastic. 

Virgo is the sign of the harvest of the earth. Pluto as the shadow asks us what have we sown? 

March 30 Venus and Pluto Trines at 15 plus degrees of Taurus and Capricorn.

October 23 completes a Grand Earth Trine since that time. 

What was happening then, 6 months ago in your LOVE life?

Venus rules Taurus, the 2nd sign, so she was in her own sign in March. V. in T. is about hands on, sensuous, physical earthly pleasures. Venus rules the sign of Libra and relationships, beauty, money and art. 

Where was VENUS in your chart then?

 

PLUTO is the Lord of Death, psychology, dark arts, the shadow, power, control, secrets, riches, sex, and transformation.Pluto is the Go to for deep psychological change as he co-rules Scorpio. 

Where is Pluto in Capricorn now in your natal chart? Capricorn is the sign of corporations, career, worldly power, the patriarchy, karma, history, time. 

Put these two planets/gods and Goddesses together in a positive earth trine and this is a great opportunity for women, artists, the creative spirit, and all of our soul’s riches to soar and support each other. 

Earth Trine Take 2

Venus in Virgo, the 6th sign of service, work, health, discipline, organization, humility, accounting. Venus in Virgo love is practical, intellectual, O.C.D. workaholics and perfection. For Venus in Virgo, Love is work, simplifying, creating order, working together.

Where is Venus in Virgo now in your astrology chart? 

Trace out the path from where Venus has moved 4 houses ahead since March 30th. 

THE SECOND TRINE GIVES YOU A SECOND WISH

All earth signs of course benefit immensely.  If you are a VIRGO this is a great powerful flowering indication for you in love, money, health, wealth,and organization.

Venus and PLUTO  are helping everyone to get down to the nitty gritty and get their act together.

clean up , declutter, finish what you started. Do it in the road. 

Go to work, improve your hygiene, serve in your community. 

Work on improving knowledge about food and the terrifying dangers of GMO foods. 

see amazing video below: 

2015 is the year of soils: Did you know that? With Jupiter in Virgo that is amazing synchronicity.

Venus in Virgo squares the signs of Sagittarius,and Gemini and  opposes Pisces.

Venus is already approaching an exact opposition to Chiron the wounded Healer on the Full Moon in Taurus Oct 27. 

We need to open to our personal and collective wounds with great  vulnerability. That is the only place to get to the wound. I was working with a client earlier today. She went into contacting her fear, and powerlessness and through opening up to it, she went deeper and the fear transformed into a very powerful strong, fearless energy.  I am always in awe as to how fast and how wise and how simple it is to do this type of Focussing. When you are ready to move mountains of pain you can have the strength of a thousand elephants. This is the kind of energy shifts that can happen now. 

The body never lies.Just breathe deeply and listen to your body. Be the Fisher King and ask yourself what ails you? The answers really are totally within you. You can shift your life awareness very quickly. The earthy planets really support grounding the subtle spiritual shifts. 

Mars in Virgo also opposes Chiron; there is action drive and passion. But being heroic and defensive does not work. Venus’s feminine energy is knowing how to surrender, to let go. 

Moon enters Pisces early on the 23rd. 

It is also a complex day. 

Sun enters Scorpio to further help shift in to the depths and die to be reborn. 

 

MEDITATE on this positive trine.

Think about riches, your inner ones. The beauty of all of you, your “flaws” your imperfections, and scars.  Dive deep into the most vulnerable places within you with love to find the healing, the inner wealth, strength and power that you posses and which no one can ever take away from you. 

Invite the Virgin Goddess, Demeter or Ceres to bestow beauty riches and intelligence upon you. 

Ceres at 28 Capricorn is squaring the Sun Oct 22 at 28 degrees Libra. 

Pluto is the Plutocracy the 1% that own most of the wealth on this planet. Call upon the Goddesses, the Divine Feminine, Kali, Durga,Lilith,the Black Madonna to bring balance to the earth and restore natural beauty and harmony so that we may all enjoy the earth’s riches in our lives. 

We need to have our earthly paradise in order to support our love and our work our bodies, health and communities.

The magical skill we all have is our minds. With our consciousness we can create whatever magic we wish to.

Yes you are a wizard or a witch. We all are. You are what you think.

The Magician usually has a lemniscate or INFINITY symbol above his head. As does the woman in the card of STRENGTH which is LEO energy.  He controls ALL TIME.  

The mind is INFINITE. Mercury is a hermaphrodite, both masculine and feminine. He symbolizes the two-lobed brain, the conscious and unconscious sides of ourselves.

The MAGICIAN is a trickster.

Mercury is now in VIRGO one of the two signs it rules.  

Keywords: grounded thinking, work, service to others, perfectionism, analysis, communications, health, discipline, order, humility.

The Sign of Virgo the Virgin earth is personified as THE HERMIT #9 Trump an initiation card

Hermit Virgo astrology Tara Greene

Guilded Tarot Hermit

THE HERMIT is not necessarily alone or to have totally abandoned all worldly possession. the Hermit is of the earth very much so.

He is usually pictured as a wise old man with a long beard in profile holding up a lamp, a light to guide the way.

He is very  much the Inner GUIDE, the one who is always there inside of you.

Just quiet that busy mind and you will find the Hermit, as your ancestors, an unbroken lineage working for and protecting you. 

You are what you eat in all ramifications. Consuming information, food, energy. Think about how you assimilate.

As Virgo rules the upper intestines, the Hermit could be thought of as your Gut Instincts, {intestines were used for divination}

Use this time with Mercury in VIRGO to tune into that ancient wisdom residing already there.

THE SUN will enter Virgo August 22/23

NEW MOON in Virgo Aug 25 

Venus enters VIRGO September 5 

earth energy is practical and healing. Walk barefoot on the earth while it s warm enough still before autumn comes. It is very healing.

MEDITATIONS

WITH THE MAGICIAN

How many balls, chickens, knives are you currently juggling? Metaphorically speaking

What is your relationship with your inner hermaphrodite?  

How IN TUNE are you? What kind of mind games do you play on yourself?

Dialogue with the HERMIT daily as a meditation.

Ask him questions, he is waiting to guide you. The Hermit can be a female guide as well, the Virgin Goddess, the keeper of the harvest.

Why am I so afraid of being alone? Very important for women to ask this question.

Talk to your body ask each part how it is feeling, You will be amazed at how correct this is.

Like a Virgin, dirty laundry and Astrology lessons.

Aug 22 Bye bye Royal Leo passions, we shed our big drama ego roles and come very down to earth as the Sun enters VIRGO – till Autumn Equinox, Sept 22. Time to feel LIKE A VIRGIN. Makin’ love for the very first time.

Virgo the Virgin- Goddess of the Harvest, is whole and complete unto herself.  She NEVER has dirty laundry lying around.

Time to sort the wheat from the chaff, most of you don’t even know what that phrase means anymore. The focus is on getting down to the very practical humdrum, maintenance of life. Kids are returning to school, the seasons begin to change.

It’s earthy pragmatic, take account of  of what your hard work has brought you so far.

Virgo is ruled by Mercury which follows the Sun one day after on Aug 23. We are getting doubly messaged about taking care of the details.

How very Virgo of the Universe, to remind us twice to not forget our need to do the laundry  and clean up our messes.Virgo’s love hard work, discipline, organizing and being frugal.

In the Tarot the sign of VIRGO adorns the Hermit the 9th Trump.

The Hermit Tara Greene psychic tarot card reader

The Hermit, like Virgo, through deep stillness and focusing inwards, finds their own truth and inner light.

Virgo’s are always on time, balance the budget, follow through on 5 year plans. They are artful tradespeople and take pride in doing a good job for the satisfaction that it brings. Virgo’s are analytical, intellectual and often have great memories They often work in the health industry, as dietitians, pharmaceuticals, alternative medicine, chiropractor’s. They make especially good  accountants, statisticians, etc.

Virgo lovers

What turns Virgo’s on? Order, practical,simple efficient high quality, good value. Books. Ideas. Walks in nature. Punctuality, meticulous cleanliness.They are  nit picky, dependable, perfectionists, pragmatic, organized, analytical, devoted. They like to talk about intellectual matters, analyze economics, numbers, books. They will always remember a birthday  or anniversary. As they are Workaholics, you may not see them that much. Don’t expect lavish gifts or frilly lingerie ladies, they are frugal and would buy you something practical. You will need to clean up your act, diet and routine for a Virgo. They will show their love for you by cleaning up you mess, fire and air signs.

Virgo’s often have underlying health issues, they worry a lot. Their most sensitive part is their upper intestine and they do tend to have digestive issues, crone’s disease, celiac and such. They are great at watching their diet, exercising etc. when they need to.

Virgo’s  love being in nature and care deeply about the environment. The Pluto in Virgo Generation born after the Baby Boomer’s Pluto in Leo -total consumption lifestyle is to clean the world up. 

Virgo’s are sensible, the opposite of Pisces which is all dreams, illusions, fantasy, ephemeral, spirituality. Virgo’s do the grease monkey work so that you can ride your dream Cadillac all refurbished on a golden afternoon. Virgo’s are the one’s with the stains on their hands- No their not, they carefully wash their hands and keep their nails scrupulously clean.

Check out  which house the Virgo Sun and Mercury will be passing through in your own chart as clues and keys to where you need to take account, clean up your act, and be of service, focused, watch your spending.

What if you have no Virgo cusp in your chart?

If you have no Virgo cusp- or access to Virgo.  This looks like, Leo for example and the entire sign of Virgo is contained within one house which then ends in early Libra. That is called an intercepted house. It has to do with where you were born on the earth.  YOu would look at Virgo in the ocntext of that particular house. I have Virgo in my 10th house, it is intercepted. So I need to work hard on my career and public image for the next solar month. How do you access your Virgoness with an intercepted Virgo? I would then look at where the sign of Gemini is in the chart as Mercury also rules Gemini. Gemini is in my 8th house cusp. Therefore I would look at how the detailed work of Virgo can totally transform my life and soul on the deepest levels.

BEST THINGS TO DO AT VIRGO TIME.

De-clutter, organize your finances, finish those baby & photography albums; Get your diet and lifestyle into shape. Join book groups and clubs, learn practical skills, canning, DIY, crafts. Find fun in cleaning, be grateful for what you do have. Commit to being of service. 

I need to declutter. 

It is time to enjoy the summer’s harvest all this month and make yourself ready to survive the winter.

Work Song by Nina Simone 

LIKE A VIRGIN – GLEE 

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.

The New Moon in Virgo Aug 28-29, 2011– Like a Virgin

Every New Moon is a new beginning, a new cycle, a rebirth in the Great Round of the year. As the Moon travels through each sign and element and makes connections to the other planets and stars the Moon is a cosmic mirror transmuting the energies and vibrations of Universal consciousness. We unconsciously know and instinctively feel deeply connected to the Moon’s movements which raise the ocean’s tides and our feelings on the Full Moons and as she disappears on the New.

The 13 Lunation’s each year both New and Full reflect back to us, through the Ancient Hermetic Maxim “As Above, so below” where we are at. The more we know about these energies, their symbolic meanings, the more knowledge and power we have to grow in our own lives in live in harmony with the cosmos. Timing is everything, everything is a symbol and knowledge is power.

The Astrology Sign of Virgo is the Constellation of the Virgin Goddess

This Virgo New Moon symbolizes for me, a return to your essence, your true and virginal Self, and seeing your Self, and the World through renewed eyes. And of course the renewed eyes are spiritual eyes, the eyes of the heart.

Astrology specifics of the Virgo New Moon, Not just for women only

This is the last New Moon this year before the Autumn Equinox and it carries an element of harvesting. The symbol of Virgo shows the Virgin goddess holding a wheat sheaf. Virgo is known for being analytical. We will take account of how far we’ve travelled since Summer Solstice.

MEDITATION FOR VIRGIN RENEWAL

Tuning into the Now of this New Moon Tara will take you on a meditative journey to connect with the energies to become renewed, Virgin, whole and complete once again! We will form clear intentions of what, we as whole renewed Virgins are birthing in many aspects in our lives. This is a supreme Virgin Harvest time for Soul renewal.
