Goddess Tara is one of the most well loved Buddhist Goddesses and is recognized as a Devi in Hindu worship. She can be recognized in three forms; green, red, and white. Green Tara, a more dynamic manifestation, symbolizes a youthful vigor and activity, while Red Tara, symbolizes longevity and healing. White Tara represents the motherly aspect of compassion. She bears the color of purity, truth, and maturity.
White Tara is often pictured in a posture with her right hand making the boon granting gesture and her left hand in the protection position holding the stem of a white lotus flower between her thumb and fourth finger. Goddess Tara is a Buddha having attained enlightenment, she can take human form yet remain with every living thing in oneness. In Sanskrit, the name Tara means Star.
Choosing love and openness causes our energy to vibrate at a higher frequency making us more sensitive to the harsher lower level frequencies where fear, hatred and unhealthy expressions of anger vibrate. As we move through these last days of Mercury in Retrograde helping us examine the way we communicate to ourselves and others, keep in mind the message of White Tara; you are becoming increasingly sensitive; avoid harsh relationships, environments, situations and chemicals.
