Half-time Mars Retrograde tarot guidance

The astrology energies are relatively benevolent today. Hallelujah for that.

Not to mention Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio and Mars Retrograde in ARIES just at the 1/2 way mark now. We have another 4 weeks to go of MARS going backwards more. Time is going backwards. We are doing the Time warp right now.

VIRGO moon is practical and solid. and there is a nice EARTH TRINE of MOON JUPITER PLUTO And SATURN.

When the planets move into AQUARIUS Starting December 21 2020, Jupiter and Saturn jump in together holding hands. Then PLUTO follows in 2023/2024. Will we look back nostalgically and miss all these hunky chunk earth-based signs as the good olde days?

enjoy the brief peace for today….

Take a breather as Venus Retrograde starts

May 13 Venus has just gone Retrograde in GEMINI today beginning her 42-day descent and return from the Underworld.  following Saturn on the 11th and today has virtually NO major planetary aspects so let this be a day of pause before Jupiter turns Retrograde on the 14th. 

here are the astrology and tarot guidance of the day to uplift your spirit.

Let me know how you like these little video logs. I’m needing to take a break from writing so much all the time.  The Muse Tarot card the 6 of Materials is so synchronous with Venus Retrograde in Gemini as an image.

Magic portal opens Today. The Winged one and Neptune

April 3 a astro vlog. Are you floaty and dreamy from all that PISCES energy? Things seem to be flowing. 

According to Traditional astrologer Adam Sommer https://www.facebook.com/kosmognosis

who wrote about an esoteric and alchemically Hermetic Platonic related poem which Renaissance astrologer Marsilio Ficino was researching hundreds of years ago. This  piqued my soul actually. 

“Ficino began to notice something strange which linked the works of Plato and Hermes Trismegistus. References to birds, angels, tridents, and a time when lightning was harnessed. Plato writes:

Mercury. Hermes, Thoth, Wednesday Astrology Tara Greene

William Henry Goodyear d. 1923 [Public domain]

When the winged one appears out from the firmament,
angels dance on the tips of the Trident
And the ocean of time reveals its trick.”

Poetic and cryptic, this passage seems to prophesize something…pointing towards a specific time in the future.”

Ficino found “a wyrdly similar passage from Hermes Trismegistus,.” The name means Triple Great, associated with the Greek god Hermes and the Egyptian god Thoth the scribe. I have worked with the THOTH Tarot since 1990 now. The Hermetic poem fragment- reads:

“The language of birds 
a green tongue
reveals angels spinning on the tips of Poseidon’s trident
Time fades away”

 after much prayer and soul-searching Ficino came to this conclusion 

 “The Soul exists partly in eternity and partly in time; When the winged one stations next to Neptune’s sea, the following Wednesday, on his hour, a portal will open..”

PORTAL OPENING HOURS and TIMES TODAY 

This specific portal which would be opened, Adam interprets, one week after Mercury the Winged One and Neptune’s meeting is today April 3, during the day ruled by Mercury which is Wednesday during the hours of Mercury. There are daytime and a nigh time hours. For EDT it is 

6:57 am -8:00 am EDT

2:25 pm -3:28 pm Mercury EDT

21:37 -22:32 pm  which is 9:37 pm- 10:32 pm EDT

You can calculate Mercury ruled hours of the day for your specific location here https://www.astrology.com.tr/planetary-hours.asp

 Adam continues “If this is true, make sure you know the movements. If you don’t know the movements, you must watch the OA. if you don’t know The OA, it’s just a google search away.

Ficino also said this: We are as elastic as the gas of gunpowder… a word dropped in conversation sets free our fancy, and instantly our heads are bathed with galaxies.

You may think you are made of stardust. But you are also eternal. Let’s go on a wyrd adventure this Wednesday. It just may be the Transit we have all been waiting for~The final pass between Mercury and Neptune in Pisces. Imagine.”

I am totally taken by this and have re-arranged my schedule to meditate and tune in during at least two of these times today. Try it yourself and write to me and let me know how it is for you. 

Read about Hermes here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hermes_Trismegistus

please share widely. 

Always smudge yourself first and the space in which you will do this work. Call in the 4 directions starting in the East or South always move clockwise. You can call in the 4 major Archangels too- Michael Raphael Gabriel and Ariel.

here is an invocation to Mercury from https://solascendans.com/2010/03/10/planetary-invocations-6-mercury/

I’ve changed a few words for gender and made a space for your own name insertion. 

this is taken from the Greek Magical Papyri, specifically to Hermes.  It is important to be emotionally involved and to vibrate the words in BOLD CAPITALS

Mercury Hermes or Thoth

“Hermes, Lord of the world, who’re in the heart,
O Circle of Selene, spherical
And square, the founder of the words of speech,
With golden sandals, turning airy course
Beneath earth’s depth, who hold the spirit’s reins,
The sun’s and who with lamps of gods immortal 
Give joy to those beneath earth’s depts, to mortals
Who’ve finished life. The Moirai’s fatal thread
And Dream divine you’re said to be, who send
Forth Oracles by day and night, you cure
Pains of all mortals with your healing cares.
Hither, O blessed one, O mighty son
Of the goddess who brings full mental powers,
By your own form and gracious mind. And to
Me, —–a pious man or woman, reveal a sign
And send him your true skill of prophecy.”

here’s another version to invoke mercury https://digitalambler.com/2012/09/26/prayer-to-hermes/

and another one to THOTH http://www.magiqc.net/misc/invothot.pdf

For Neptune

You must have solid boundaries and the 4 directions set up before calling in Neptune.

Call in the directions starting with the East, Some traditions start in the south. ALWAYS MOVE CLOCKWISE. You can call in the 4 Archangels too starting with Michael in the East, then Raphael, Gabriel and Ariel.

you would invoke NEPTUNE as God of the Oceans, bringer of dreams and psychic powers, insight, telepathy, automatic writing, prophecy, seership, oracular seeing, clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience, God of shamans, yoga, ashrams, and mystics.

In Astrology Neptune if the Higher Octave of VENUS who is presently exalted in PISCES as well. This is so auspicious.

Neptune rules all artist, all actors,all creativity which is channeled from spirit directly. 

Neptune governs soul mates, unconditional spiritual love, higher dimensions, visions, mysticism, spirituality, anything hidden, our cellular consciousness.

Neptune in the Tarot is related to a Higher octave of the Moon #18 The Dark Side of the Moon

But be careful with Neptune as its nature is to cast fog, to tempt your lower self’s addictions, to spin illusions, delusions of glamour and mental illness. Also denial ,lethargy and being a martyr. Ask Neptune for understanding the secret or hidden or karmic meaning behind events in your life buried in your cellular consciousness and unconscious. Always thank the Gods, energies, spirits and angels who showed up in your circle. Always release the Gods and spirits back to their specific directions and dimensions before closing the circle.

Mercury Out of Bounds-free your mind

MERCURY is in SAGITTARIUS from November 5 until January 11, 2018.

Mercury has just moved OUT OF BOUNDS from November 9th to December 7th. An out of bounds planet is just like it sounds- unbound free unchartered territory Willy-nilly. This refers to al communications media thinking and analysis. You add your own keywords.

If communications start to mess up. It is the pre-shadow Retrograde. Mercury’s weakness in Sagittarius and the Out of Bounds Mercury.

MERCURY in the TAROT is the #1 card the MAGICIAN. Consciousness itself.

A free-thinking magician is like one that escaped from Azkaban as in Harry Potter stories.

Wednesday is MERCURY’s day

Use the most positive side to free your mind.

Mercury Retrograde astrology Tara Greene

I’m feeling P.M. R. already. That’s a pre-Mercury Retrograde period of mixed up information and kerfluffles. Just alerting you. Mercury turns Retrograde for the 4th and last time in 2017 on Dec. 2/3rd until December 22nd. It will still be in its shadow period until January 11th, 2018, until it can bypass its Retrograde turning point.

Do your Christmas shopping early to avoid mess ups.

Mercury, Grand Earth Trine Tarot and Astrology,Tara Greene

Its’a MERCURIAL day on Mercury’s day, Wednesday. In French, Mercredi. 
Mercury is the fleet-footed messenger of the Gods also the closest and fastest moving planet to the Sun.
Mercury trines URANUS
the higher octave of Mercury in the wee hours of July 27. Expect some wild dreams and many light bulbs to go off in your dreams! These two planets are the rulers of CHAOS, change, freedom, revolution, brilliant ideas and new technologies.
You may be restless, wired and too energized to sleep. Uranus is electrical energy. Keep your mind open, Mercury is in LEO and is connected to your HEART CHAKRA. Listen to your heart and allow new strategies in which can help you to approach anything where you feel stuck.
Mercury inconjuncts CHIRON the SHAMANIC HEALER in PISCES
There is a disconnect between the Mercury in LEO ego and the deeper intuitive knowing that your psyche contains. Take some time to sit with and feel into your own intuition, your cellular consciousness, your sleeping dreams and waking dreams for the answers to all of this chaos that is going on in the world around us. I certainly feel overwhelmed by it all.  STRONG BOUNDARIES are needed. That is one of the ego’s most positive roles, to define the  “I.”  At this time of the great polarization of ” I am not you.”  Chiron in PISCES begs to differ and says “
” I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together. 
See how they run like pigs from a gun, see how they fly.
I’m crying.
Sitting on a cornflake,waiting for the van to come.
Corporation Tee-shirt, stupid bloody Tuesday.” -John Lennon I am The Walrus 1967
The Mood is certainly obstinate and stubborn  as the TAURUS MOON inconjuncts SATURN in SAGITTARIUS and later Moon squares Venus in LEO .
This translates as: Difficult issues with authority figures, politics, pissed off with women leaders. And can make things difficult in personal up close relationships. Be aware of where you are being too pushy, demanding and stubborn. Reigning in that behaviour will get you what you really want. Try it. 
INSPIRATIONAL TAROT CARD OF THE DAY 
3 of Pentacles, Tarot card reader Tara Greene
3 of Pentacles by Cathy McClelland. 3 of disks/earth
This card illustrated the Grand Earth Trine energy. I love the three turtles for the 3 of Pentacles. It is very magical earth trine symbol.  
TAURUS MOON trines Pluto in CAPRICORN and JUPITER in VIRGO @ 21+degrees
This is an excellent day to get down to really practical details. Money and investments, creating with your hands, getting down and dirty literally, being in Nature, fact checking expenses, setting long-term education and travel goals. A good  day to ask for a raise, get a promotion and start a new diet or health regime.  All earth signs benefit.

Meaning of Wednesday, Odin, The Hanged Man

Happy Wednesday, named after the Anglo-Saxon/Norse God Woden or Odin originating from the Hebrew tribe of Dan and the root word Adonai. Woden is the highest God like Zeus, or Yahweh, and a God of poetry, death and the Wild Hunt. Odin is represented as a grave-looking elderly man with a long beard, carrying in his hand a spear accompanied by two dogs and two ravens. He was the father of poetry, and the inventor of Runic writing.

Wednesday is also named after the planet MERCURY, Mercredi in French. The connection is through the  language/ruins/intuitive symbolism connection. For intellect or for true connection to work one must suspend one’s ego and point of view to receive true wisdom. .

He also appears in the Tarot as Arcana #12 The Hanged Man, a card of emotional initiation and baptism of surrendering the ego to a Higher Power.  Odin was hung upside down on the World Tree or Ygdrassil, suspending his ego and logic and this is how he received the inspiration for the magical language symbols the Ruins were born. The Hanged Man is also related to the scapegoat and the martyr.  Alcoholics Anonymous relates to the Hanged Man in giving it up to God in their 12 steps. 

Odin is the HANGED MAN Arcana #12 in the TAROT

Napoleon Brousseau Hanged Candy Man 2012

        The HANGED MAN TAROT #12      by Napoleon Brousseau   oil on                      canvas  2012 

Invocation to Odin:

Odin, Woden,
With one eye turned outward
To the world of form and living breath
The other eye turned inward
To the dreaming trance of the dwale, The shamanic death
Oh Dale I enwrap myself in your nightside cloak of deepest blue
(he spears himself in the side)
Hnikkar, Hakelberg, guide us through
The long dark night
As upon den Geisterwegen und den Wegen des Todes we tread
Irlik Kahn oh mighty lord of the dead, guide us through…
Gwyn ap Nudd, Faery King
Take us beneath the barrow mound
By cloven hoof and raven’s wing

I believe I found this invocation at Orryelle Defenestrate-Bascule’s site

Serious intent, Meditate for PEACE in Syria

Jan 26 -27 
Ground your dreams with Virgo Moon opposite Neptune today.
Come down off your high and make it real.
 
Moon squares Saturn in Sagittarius 10:33 pm PST
 
Jan 27 @1:33 am EST. How to use the DIVINE TIMING….
 
VIRGO is the Sign of the HARVEST. MERCURY is the planet that rules Virgo, and is earthy and pragmatic. SATURN is serious and defines things and limits them SAGITTARIUS is far-reaching, humorous and philosophical.
As Mercury is now direct but barely budging, use this Divine Timing to look back at what you have harvested in all aspects of your life, especially those that Virgo and Sagittarius are concerned with.
Work, health, budgets,and long-term educational, work, travel and pleasure trips.
This aspect is good to seek out a mentor, get advise from a serious teacher, guru, literary agent, or comedian.
 
Sagittarius is POLITICS, there should be lots of grass-roots stomping and mud-slinging.
 
Good idea to watch your diet and take pro-biotics if you need at this time.
Wed. is active with EARTH TRINES  from Moon to Mercury and Pluto in the wee hours. 
golden pyramid Tara Greene
Moon inconjuncts Uranus also makes for frustrating uncontrollable details. 
Moon opposes Chiron still early in the day
Pay attention to the details, Notice who is suffering. Everyone around you is. Dont interrupt the sorrow. Meditate on it. 
Moon conjuncts JUPITER at 4:11 pm PST/ 7:11 pm EST    always positive to conjunct with JUPITER.  
Jupiter is like Christmas eve, and small puppies, ice cream, beauty, winning lotteries and all good things. Jupiter is also conjunct the NORTH NODE our highest collective spiritual goal.
FEBRUARY 1st- MARK THIS DATE ON YOUR CALENDARS 
WOrLD WIDE PRAYERs for PEACE in SYRIA. 
 
Just came across this important upcoming world-wide meditation led by James Twyman, who is a world renowned musician, meditator and you should read his book  emissary of Light about when he went to Bosnia in the early 90’s. He is a PEACE TROUBADOR. Film Director turned meditation guru David Lynch is also involved with this peace making endeavour.  They are working with a non-profit org called UNIFY, 
James Twyman is entering ISIS controlled Syria with a concert for Peace in days from now. He is being joined by Jewish, Christian and Muslim Religious Leaders who are making a courageous stand for harmony between the world religions. Please take a moment to join him on February 1st for a Synchronized Meditation and World Peace Vigil. Details to be released 1 day in advance for security reasons. Register for updates here: www.worldpeacepulse.com
James Twyman  will sing to worn torn Syria and we will all join together with millions of people world-wide to synchronizing their loving prayers and meditate together for peace for 10 minutes, Sending love to the muslim terrorists to change the nature of the war and hate to love and peace. 
I will be meditating and sending prayers of protection to James, as I feel that Daech, does not care about seeing Christian, Muslim and Jews together.  I cannot profane the name of the great Egyptian Goddess who the media, and James here, keep referring to these Muslim Terrorists  as.  Whoever started these fundamentalists killing groups who destroy sacred historical places, rape women, steal and murder innocent people in the most dark ages ways.. They are not interested in Peace but only in controlling the world to be their way, they want Sharia law to control the world. It is about politics with no human rights whatsoever It is fascism.
I know that James is well intentioned.  I feel its important to send him prayers for a miracle that these Terrorists will see him as Mohammed reincarnated telling them they are all wrong and infidels themselves. Miracles can happen.
