Friday the 13th

Are you superstitious? Were you born under a bad sign?  The scientific name for fear of #13 is called triskadekaphobia and the fear of Friday the 13th is called paraskevidekatriaphobia. Why is the #13 feared and supposed to be bad? The origin of the number 13 needs to be understood and shifted from fear and superstition.

The fear of #13 is really a misogynist mind wash which originated with the Catholic church.

 I love #13. The truth will set you free. Pet a black cat today and break a few mirrors. Breaking mirrors is a psychological metaphor for breaking free of your unconscious projections.

In the Tarot the #13 is DEATH and as the Western culture fears death and its own immortality it screwed all of this up and mad death bad and to be feared. 

Death was always presided over by The GODDESS. She who gives birth also gives Death. Again the Church’s fears of the Divine Feminine had to make everything associated with HER the Great Goddess- bad, negative, fearfull, tainted. 

 Thirteen is the sacred number of the Goddess, the DIVINE FEMININE because it is the number of annual LUNAR cycles. Friday is named in honor of the Nordic Goddess Freya who is also the planet/ Goddess Venus. The Moon is one of the main embodiments of the Goddess. Women’s menstrual cycles are synchronized to the moon and women were seen to be earthly representatives of the Goddess, Her mysteries and immortality. Pagans worshipped the Goddess, the moon and Her natural cycles of death and rebirth which women partook of every month. Woman’s periods are equated with the number 13. 

To further suppress Goddess worship, the church made the number 13 into something evil, feared and superstitious as they feared women’s powers as creatresses as magical.

Friday the 13th is really an anti-pagan Goddess day and I don’t like it continuing to be portrayed that way in error. This keeps unconsciously programming fear of the feminine, intuition, magic, nature, menstrual blood, and women’s power.

Black cats are “familiars” of witches. All cats absorb negative energies and are highly sensitive to spirits and other energies which we normally can’t sense. If you’ve ever had a cat of any color you know this.

On this day, Friday the 13th I honor the Goddess, the Divine Feminine and the lunar cycles. I remember and honor myself and all women as holders of the mysteries within our bodies.

Always choose LOVE over Fear.
I choose to love and honor the real positive magic of being alive; naturally intuitive and connected imminently with nature.

There are no curse removals or magic spells 

Also I do not believe in superstitious curses and their removal. Yes there are negative energies and entities. I do not ascribe to the belief in curses or their removal or changing luck and black magic. All negative intention is black magic.  It is all about energy. Thousands of unscrupulous lying phony psychics claim to remove curses etc. but they are only manipulating naive unsuspecting powerless desperate people. I am totally against this position. Do not project your own powerlessness onto someone else as having some amazing power who claims that they can remove your troubles or provide an instant fix for thousands of dollars.  Please don’t pay phony psychics to perform rituals, light candles or pray for you for exorbitant prices. That’s all a hoax.  Yes positive intentions work, only you can change your own life, no one can do that for you. It’s a matter of perspective and psychological shamanic awareness.  I help my clients to get empowered. Stop believing the popular myths which religions creates just to control you. That’s black magic too. They always blame their own sins onto others.

Halloween Horror scope by Tara Greene witchy psychic predictions

HALLOWEEN originally called SAMHAIN is the Pagan New year!

We totally out of synch with solar/lunar natural cycle Westerners who denigrate the earth, the Feminine, the Goddess, and ourselves celebrate New Year’s on  a totally artifical Gregorian calendar date 2 months later.  Why not get in synch now?

 The commercialised version of Halloween which has been handed down to us, does partake of some of the original mystery of this night filled with ghosts and spirits walking amongst the living.

October 31 is the night when the veil which divides the worlds of the living and the dead is the thinnest. Covens of pagans, who are ancient nature worshippers, labeled witches and persucuted by the Catholic Church for centuries, would gather to celebrate this sacred Night, the direction of the North West on the great round of the wheel of Life.

Plates of cakes and wine with candles lit are offered to your beloved ancestors, without whom your consciousness and body would not be here. Recalling your departed relatives with reverence is part of the scaredness of this day.

An alter is decorated with autumn leaves, the oranges and golds, the pumpkin, a fall vegetable, one of the last of the season, symbolizes the full round, ripe with abundant seeds of Life.  The harvest has been gathered, the fields are fallow. The King of the Waning Year has sailed over the sunless sea of the womb of the Mother, and alights on the Shining Isle, the luminous wolrd egg, becoming the seed of his own rebirth. The gates of life and death are opened! the new Sun child is conceived, the dead arise and walk, and to the living is revealed the Mystery, that there is no death, that life is everlasting, all endings are but new beginnings. We meet in time out of time, everywhere and nowhere, here and there, atonce, to greet the Lord of Death, who is Lord of Life and the Triple Goddess who is the circle of Rebirth. – referenced to Starhawk.

IT is the best night to scry gazing into crystals or water.

The popular childrens Halloween game of bobbing for apples, comes down to us from the original ancient ceremonial use of the apple at the Halloween Sabbat ceremony. An apple is the Goddess sacred fruit of Life- remember the Garden of Eden? It is cut by a ritual sword or athame splitting it open to reveal it as the fruit of death as well. The 2 in One.  All apples are Goddess symbols, the shape of the fruits’ seeds is the 5 sided pentagram ,the five fold star of rebirth, as Venus actually cyles in the pentagram shape over time. Upright pentagrams are symbols of Venus herself. The downturned ones are inverted used for black magic and negative.

Apples and eaten wine is drunk. Celebrations of rebirth, renewal, everlasting life is what Halloween is all about. At Midnight Nov 1st becomes the day of the Dead celebrated thoughout Mexico, it is coincidentally also part of that ancient Halloween celebration. The spirits of the dead are able to intermingle with the living. Meals are shared with the departed ancestors and friends. In Mexico great fmaily picinics occur in cemetaries. The dead are consdered to be helpers and protectors of the living from the beyond always with us but closer this night.

SEXY SCORPIO SUN & RETRO VENUS, MERCURY IN SCORPIO, LEO MOON ON EARLY HALLOWEEN- shifts to VIRGO EARTHY PRACTICALITY

From Feeling like a KING/QUEEN t0 NEED TO TIDY UP WHILE I PARTY

Oct 31 2010 early in the day shows a firey proud passionate show off Leo Moon shining down. So expect raucaus outrageous over the top grandstanding. Very playfull child like adults whooping it up in their best Zombies, dracula, Vampires, witchy, drag, favourite star, clever, cleavage reavealing, bondage,kinky, best. 

MOON is Void of Course at 2:01 pm PDT/5:01 pm EDT

A Void-of- course Moon is great for scrying, spiritual work, crystal ball gazing, casting spells- white ones of course. The good witches say ” Harm none, or the spell comes back to you 9 times over.” 

YOU should see the “crack between the worlds”  this night. not to be confused with someone’s Mooning or derriere crack exposed by too short pants.  The veil between the worlds is what the High Priestess Tarot Trump # 2 protects and she is the MOON incarnate. I am a High Priestess by birth Number. I remember many past lives functioning as a High Priestess in many cultures and time periods. Read all about it in my upcoming book…

Energy may wind done as Moon moves into earthy, perfectionistic VIRGO “what’s that out of place, blob on your zombie costume?” at 8:51 pm PDT / 11:51 pm – 9 minutes before the Witching hour?  So a big shift in energy tonight.

DO LET ME KNOW IF YOU FEEL THE LUNAR SHIFT …

The astrology chart cast for 5:01 pm EST time shows a firey Aries Ascendant and Saturn sitting right on the descendant at 11 degrees of Libra.  I predict marriage proposals for some seriously Saturn-ized Librans and other signs tonight.  

I’ve included asteroid VAMPILOVE # 3230 in the chart fittingly its at 2 degrees of SCORPIO { with venus Retrograde about to cross it} -it is the Asteroid whose name is most similar contraction to VAMPIRE I LOVE and  for more info on Asteroid VAMPILOVE – see my take on the most popular and handsome Vampire – Robert Pattinson- and its role in his Birth Chart at http://www.taratarot.com/id105.html

This asteroid is being squared by Pluto- Lord of  Death, and the North Node on Halloween.Karmic. Be carefull if bitten.

VERY SEXY SCORPIO HALLOWEEN 

what with Sun conjunct a Retro Venus and Mercury in Scorpio {plus that Asteroid} that’s 3 watery intense power, control, fetish, secrets, nite.

With Venus retro almost conjunst that Vampilov expect past lovers to show up mysteriously at your party but you won’t recognize them. Many many sexy bedroom romps later on this night on the day of the Dead Nov. 1st with mysterious strangers. Life in death and death in life.

Be carefull not to get inticed by spirits diguised as living humans.

SAFE HALLOWEEN.

REMEMBER TO HONOUR YOUR ANCESTORS NOV 1ST.
