Friday the 13th doubled, spiritual insights from Tara Greene

Are you superstitious? Do you get all nervous because it’s Friday the 13th?

Do you freak out when black cats cross your path? 

Friday the 13 in a 13 year. Twice as UNLUCKY?

The Number 13 which we normally thought of as bad luck was a relatively new idea instigated when the Catholic Church  tried to demolish and demote anything remotely connected to paganism, wicca, the Ancient Goddess nature worshipping spirituality.

The # 13 is simply the number of LUNAR MONTHS in a year. In China and Japan, Muslim, Jewish and in Mayan spiritual and Native American counts, the ancient lunar calendar’s are still observed and followed.  

13 is a natural rhythm, if we also lived by the lunar calendar the entire Western culture would be much more harmonious. Especially for women. I vote to reinstate a Lunar Calendar and get rid of this artificial Gregorian calendar. 

Friday the 13th Tara Greene

Women were once considered to be the Moon incarnate, magical, mystical  and totally connected to nature. Women’s bodies are in synch with the Moon’s lunar influences as are the ocean’s tides. Therefore the fear of women’s bodies, sexuality and bleeding  was created by the Christian church who also created what we think of as the Devil and  “witches.” The Church persecuted and tortured over 9 million,yes you nine million, mainly herbalists, mid-wives and other simple people who lived simply close to nature for over 300 years is a total brainwashing campaign and made the # 13 seem negative or scary.

So no fear of the # 13. In fact celebrate it, It carries magically potent Goddess energy.

Double 13 is a sign of double blessings.

It’s time for all witches to “COME OUT.” Yes its become “trendy” because of Harry Potter. I know that J.K. Rowling  channelled Harry Potter. I believe that was  past life memory which she, as a writer, altered her innate knowledge for a modern teen audience. That’s why it started this huge resurgence. There are 9 million of you who are alive now who remember honoring the Goddess, the Divine Feminine and being tortured in the most cruel way because of your devotion. Yes you do know it deep down. Reclaim your ancient love of the Goddess, The Earth, Nature and the Moon.

I am a witch and proud of it. I do no harm, I advocate against Black magic and manipulating innocent people with fortune telling. I remember being burned at the stake by my Catholic inquisitors. I was also initiated as  green witch by Susun Weed, at her beautiful farm in Woodstock New York in 1987. I have been serving the Goddess as one of her High Priestesses for thousands of years.

The Moon is in earthy Taurus ruled by Venus. It’s Perfect. Do what makes you feel good in body, heart, mind and soul. Don’t throw salt over your shoulder, or worry if you break a mirror or open an umbrella in the house, walk under a ladder etc. Trust your gut instincts not your false fear. You know that acronym of  F.E.A. R.  False evidence appearing real? Don’tcha worry ’bout a thing.

I send you DOUBLE LUCKY GODDESS ENERGY today.

Happy Lammas, Wiccan holiday, you Look marvellous dahling

August 1 is known as LAMMAS in the wiccan/pagan calendar of the 8 rounds of the wheel of the year

Lammas is aChristianized version meaning “loaf Mass.”

Lughnasad is its other name. We are half way to the AUTUMN Equinox now.

This feastival honors the Grain gods. IT’s a very very ancient festival. From the races before the Celts.

At this time of year, The Bees are Buzzing, or should be. Where have all the bees gone? Monsanto?

It is traditionally celebrated as the wake of the Sun KING, who is dying now in the waning of his own Light.

British witches celebrate it on August 6 this is a cross quarter station in the round of the year.  It occurs in relationship to Leo the Lion, the Royal watcher related to Archangel Raphael and the heart chakra and the deep emerald-green colour.

It was a time for communal festivities, crafts, jams, plays, dances, what we think of as a Renaissance fair.

A highlight of these festivals was a wheel set afire and rolled down a hill called  “Catherine wheels. ” Based on a mythological figure, her worshippers were the CATHARS or Cathari= heretics who were routed out by the Catholic Church. The word catharsis comes from the same Latin root.

BONFIRES are always part of this festival perhaps to give the Sun more light.

Celebrations include making cookie people figures and star cookies are baked in celebration.  It is time of anxious waiting, we are not yet assured of a harvest which will keep the people alive. It is  a time to free oneself from FEAR.  A snake dance is created going counter clock wise, bread figures are thrown into the bonfire to symbolize the burning up of one’s fears. Then one says what one hopes to harvest.

Symbols of STARS are held up. The High Priestess would say,

“MAY THE STAR OF HOPE BE WITHIN US ALWAYS.”

The coveners would eat the star cookies and celebrate.

LIke the Tarot image of THE STAR-#17

The STar Thoth Tara Greene

always a message of Hope- when you wish upon a star.

Think about how your seeded ideas and goals have manifested since Spring EQUINOX. Measure what has grown high, what has blossomed, what hasn’t. Take stock of your life on all levels, as a measure. You are now in the home stretch of greatest growth. Use the time wisely.

Enjoy your Lammas celebrations.  I will be having a small ceremony with my family. We send blessings to you and yours.

And for fun I couldn’t help thinking about another Lamas

Halloween Samhain Witches New year,post Sandy

Halloween is Pagans/WiTCHES New Year called SAMHAIN
October 31st is when the Veil between the world’s is the thinnest
it’s the best night in the year to scry, gaze into your crystal ball and connect with the spirits of your Ancestors.

 It is the noche of Día de los Muertos the Day of the Dead in Mexico.
Remember the Burning Times by Tara Greene copyright 2012-infinity

These days Halloween has become another day in the year in which to sell lots of junk candy scary rubber and plastic paraphernalia, fake blood, creaky coffin lids, etc etc. another commercialized holiday. The kiddies are given way too much sugar. The guys love to dress in drag, it is the modern version of the SATURNALIA.

But let’s not forget the origins of Halloween. It is Hallow’ed Evening. A Holy Evening, the Ancient Pagan/Wiccan New Year when the Sun is in Scorpio, sign of Birth, Death and Transformation. It is close to the mid-point between Autumn and Winter Solstice. Death is Rebirth.

The Wheel of the Year Turns and this is a Sabbat or Sabbath Night, covens gather to do Ceremony. This is a Sacred not a Scared Night.

I wish in the midst of your pumpkin carving and revelry that you take time out to honour this day as it was originally intended. Remember in the midst of all the superficial trappings of Halloween, the hundreds of thousands, some say up to 9,000,000 mainly women, children and men who were accused of being witches by the Catholic Church who were tortured and burned at the stake. Old women, crones, medicine women, herbalists, midwives, pagans, their families, the poor, all innocent people who lived in harmony with Nature, who Loved their Mother the Earth, who knew the Wise Women Ways, the ancient ways to heal, to tend the sick and dying, the mothers giving birth. It was a mysogynist Nazi Christian tyranny that went on for over 300 years in Europe and to the New World where the last woman was burned at the stake at Salem, Mass.

Remember this Holocaust because it wasn’t so long ago. You didn’t have to be Jewish or Muslim you mainly just had to be a woman and therefore evil in the sainted eyes of the Holy Christian Church. The genderside continues daily on this planet.

I remember my own burning, I relived this memory of my past life during a Holotropic Breathwork session. Those 100,000-200,000 to 9 million innocent souls who were terribly tortured and burned are back now on this earth.Deep in the cells of your own being, in your cellular consciousness be you male or female at this time, you remember the Burning Times, when you lived in total fear, when you hid you pagan religion, your ability to help, to heal, your compassion. When tyranny was all around and anyone could accuse you of being a witch thereby ensuring your almost certain death. Watch The Burning Times a Canada Film Board movie which chronicles in detail this stain upon humanity.

Light a candle for those hundreds of thousands,nay millions of souls whose lives were taken by a cruel arrogant Church,hypocritical to the nth degree. Given 6 degrees of separation you or someone you love, your children or your dog or cat, a friend or even your landlord was surely enough one of those people.

It’s time to acknowledge the deep pain in the shadows of our unconscious. The only way to heal it is to acknowledge that shadow, let the tears flow, the grief, the agony. This brings it out of unconsciousness otherwise that shadow control our actions unconsciously and allows us to keep inflicting pain on others and self, believing that we are not worthy, not lovable, deceitful, sinners,powerless. There is a collective shadow of women being afraid to hold their power and beauty.

As this is a New Year in the Ancient Count of Days, Light a Candle of Illumination and Enlightenment and go beyond the rage, the anger into Love and Forgiveness. For the only way out is to forgive the accusers for their ignorance. This takes great strength and courage, for as you Forgive them you also forgive yourself and allow yourself to be free of the past.

Chiron the wounded healer comes to mind here.

This HAlloween 2012 is under a just past Full Gemini MOON

so will be a very busy bustling Halloween. At 8:33 pm Los Angeles time the Moon at 4 degrees gemini conjuncts LILLITH, the dark feminine Rejected powerful original woman before EVE.

MOON LILLITH brings up all the dark Feminine energy to Halloween especially as it is opposite Mercury- TRUTH in Sagittarius and  in sqaure to both CHIRON the Wounded Healer, and Neptune spirituality and Forgivenss, imagination and dreaming.

The dream of the rebirth of the FEMININE is here. PLease vote OBAMA, he is not the greatest choice but the ONLY choice in order for 51% of the population to be FREE.

She will arise on HALLOWE’ED EVE and whisper in your soul and make the Divine Feminine the PSYCHE come alive and be heard.

She is KALI/DURGA and her wrath is nothing compared to Hurricane Sandy which I believe is part of her emanation/menstruation.

HAPPY SAFE Hallow’ed Eve and I’ll see you as I fly on my broom

blessings, TARA

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.
