Eagles and Condors

March 31, 2020

John Perkins shares an excerpt from his new book Touching the Jaguar (due out in mid-June), and comments about it, in his email newsletter for 31 March 2020, titled The Eagle and Condor Prophecy and the Virus

https://mailchi.mp/johnperkins/the-eagle-and-condor-prophecy-and-the-virus

“I hear over and over that this virus is telling us to reexamine who we are as individuals and as a species.  The message that the hurricanes, earthquakes, fires, and other ‘once in 100 years’ events that now happen every year or so failed to convey is now being heard around the globe – because of the coronavirus.  We once took satisfaction in knowing that if we survived the hurricane, earthquake or other catastrophe, within a week or two help would arrive from the ‘outside’ world: bottled water, food, medical help.  Now we know: There is no ‘outside’ world.”

Certainly very appropriate for a Big Moment in our Climate Change Drama astroevent (Strong Emotions [Moon OOB 31 March-1 April] while our Survival Instincts [dwarf planet Quaoar] and our Need for Eyes in the Back of our Head [dwarf planet Pholus] are also very Strong [both Stationary 1-3 April] – John’s newsletter hit my inbox just as the Moon crossed the Tropic of Cancer, outbound).  From Touching the Jaguar p.99…

” ‘Back in the mists of history, human societies took two routes.  The Eagle peoples flew the path of the mind, of science, technology, and industry.  The Condor peoples flew the path of the heart, of passion, intuition, and spiritual connections with nature.’  It goes on to explain that for centuries they would never meet.

“Then in the Fourth [half-millennium], which began in about 1500 AD on our calendar, their paths would cross; the Eagle would nearly drive the Condor into extinction.  But not quite.  The prophecy says that five hundred years later… – now – the opportunity arises for the Eagle and the Condor to fly together, to mate, and to produce a new offspring, higher consciousness.

“History confirms the first prophecy.  Columbus, 1492.  The Eagle swept into Condor territory and almost wiped out the Indigenous peoples.  But not quite.  Now, five hundred years later the prophecy is being fulfilled again.  The Eagle and Condor are coming together to create higher consciousness.  It is happening!  Indigenous teachers have invited us to learn their ways.  There is a deep interest in traditional nature-based wisdom and shamanism among industrialized people around the world.”

That’s particularly fascinating to me because by a series of coincidences I ended up helping to fund the Audubon Society’s rescue of the California Condor from extinction in the mid-1980s, just prior to the Harmonic Convergence, and to the Initiation of this blog’s predecessors.  I didn’t have that much money to contribute, but I guess because I was obviously contributing more than I could afford, it was inspiring enough to them that I ended up with special thanks in their annual Audubon Wildlife Report.

The Harmonic Convergence of course was, astrologically, a Convergence of major planets in Capricorn and on the cusp of Aquarius – just as in 2020.

And of course we can’t forget that the Eagle was prominent at the turn of the 21st Century, as an overarching theme for the Century (Sabian Symbol for the coincident Pluto-Chiron Initiation) is “A flag turning into an Eagle turning into a Chanticleer Saluting the Dawn.”

A friend and colleague of astrologer Demetra George has stumbled across an 5km, four-year asteroid named Wuhan, that “just happened to be” in Capricorn this year…

https://demetra-george.com/blog/asteroid-wuhan/

Asteroid Wuhan also “just happened to be” Dancing around Capricorn in 1987-8.  So far this year, Wuhan has crossed Ixion (5 January), Pholus (16 Jan), Quaoar (19 Jan), Jupiter (14 Mar), Mars (22 Mar), and Pluto (24 Mar).  It will cross Chariklo (12 Apr) and Saturn (25 Apr) in April, then enter Aquarius on 28 May.  It returns to Capricorn from 9 July to 12 November.

Tumultuous Week 3

March 31, 2020

The dwarf planets, especially those out beyond Pluto, represent essential fragments of the Universal Unconscious, and by extension essential fragments of our Cultural and Personal Unconscious.  The Personal Unconscious comprises everything that the Ego disowns.  If you’ve ever said “I’m not one of those people!” or “I can’t stand people like that!,” you’ve just Identified a significant segment of your Personal Unconscious.  Similarly, if you’ve ever said “I’m NOT one of those people who…” you can be sure that those people reside in your Unconscious.  Which means you either want to Own that part of Yourself, or Let Go of that Karma, or both.

The dwarf planet Ixion, which reached its Peak Energy at 1am 30 March 2020 in 1 Capricorn, is all about our Hidden and Forbidden Genius.  It doesn’t take a lot of Genius to stay between the lines that someone else has drawn to keep us under Control.  Those lines are our first Barrier to Expressing our Genius.  The next couple of Barriers are the lines we have to keep ourself under Control.  Some of those were installed by our Programmers, some are Karmic, some follow from our Values, and some from our Personality or our Experiences.

If we don’t like to Shout, for instance, why is that?  Was it just not done in our Family of Origin?  Were we Punished for it?  Did we ever have occasion to do it?  Did we do it then?  Was it Spontaneous, or did we have to Overcome our own Resistance?  What happened?  Were we Embarrassed?  Was our Message Received?  Did we Get what we were Shouting For?

If we want to Change the World – and Goddess Knows it Needs Changing – we’ll probably have to Shout, maybe a lot.  Even if we Speak Softly and carry a Big Stick, our Message may not be Received, and for every one of us, our Message is indispensable for Earth Repair.

After 11 September 2001, I didn’t keep track of the individual Moon-Out-of-Bounds sessions after the first one, so I don’t know if they’re likely to Intensify the Energies or not, but we’re about to find out.  As it does for a few days every two weeks during its OOB Decade, the Moon goes Out-of-Bounds at 11 am PDT on 31 March 2020, and returns In-Bounds at 3pm PDT on 1 April.  It’s not a fair test, though, because while the Moon is OOB, dwarf planet Pholus Stands Still, at 11am PDT on 1 April (in 5 Capricorn).

Both “Out-of-Bounds” and “Standing Still” make the Energy of a planet (or “Light,” in the case of the Moon) much Stronger than usual.  The Moon and Pholus won’t be Competing for our Attention though, they’ll just Amp each other Up.  The Moon is about our Instincts, and Emotionality.  Pholus is about the Possibility or Likelihood of Being Blindsided by something we weren’t ready for.  If we Discount our Intuitions, the Likelihood increases.

How do we Differentiate Instinct from Emotionality?  Is it “just” Anxiety, or is it Instinct?  Wishful thinking, or a glimpse of the Future?  I Differentiate these by alternating Tapping and Theta Healing, as I described at the end of https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2020/03/24/changing-vitality-patterns-new-moon/.  Emotions are often the Messenger for Intuitions, so don’t make them second-class citizens in your Internal Dramas.  You might start your Theta-Tapping Loops by Commanding Clarity.

The stock market it a great indicator of Emotionality – I’ll be watching it between 10am and noon PDT on 31 March.  And of course the Coronavirus has everyone riled up.  I can easily picture the Antichrist Abusing another reporter for quoting what he said before he had to pretend that whatever happened was all his idea.  Or other unsettling news about the Pandemic.  It’s a Global Detox, so be Mindful that whatever you Lose, if anything, might be what Stands between you and the Future You’ve Always Wanted.

The larger context is Global Warming, as the dwarf planet that symbolizes our Survival Instincts (Quaoar) is also Standing Still, culminating 3 April at 9:10 pm PDT (also in 5 Capricorn).  The astrological indicator for Global Warming is the Union of Pholus and Quaoar, which is consummated 21 February 2022.  Here they’re Standing Still only two days and 22 arcminutes apart.  So we shouldn’t be Surprised to see a Big Weather Event this week either.

It doesn’t help that the Pholus and Quaoar Stations are also Merged with a major symbol for our Karma (the South Node).  However, they do make a Self-Resolving Challenge (Diamond Star).  The Challenge (T-Square base) arises from Potential Confusion or Competition between Manifesting Self-Love (Sappho-Makemake) and Eschewing Codependence (Lilith-Chiron).  And of course Friction between either of those two Energies and the Pholus-Quaoar (-South Node-Ixion) Global Warming Energy.  We might be Eschewing Codependence with a Vengeance, but the Coronavirus could leave us begging for food and shelter.

The Grace or Resolution (the base of the Finger of God) in the Self-Resolving Challenge arises from Accepting and Exercising Conscious Control over our Vitality and Health (Lachesis-Varuna) and Becoming Conscious of Limiting Beliefs that had been Founded in Fear and inappropriately Cemented into Values that are now Obsolete (Venus-Vesta-Sedna).  We may be Exposed to Ego Death here as our Consciousness Changes quickly, but it should be an Easy one, since the Challenge is Self-Resolving.

Make a mental note of Who You Were a week ago, so you can Compare it to Who You’ve Become a week from now.  If you’re Feeling Dizzy or Confused or Lost or Grieving, that’s a Good Sign.  This is the Ego Molt process that you’re Feeling.  If you take an Honest Look into the Future just beyond your Molt, you’ll find Grounded Excitement – especially if you can Accept your Feelings without having to Assign Reasons for them.

Tumultuous Week 2

March 28, 2020

In the following table, we list the peak times for the coming astroevents.  The Energies are likely to build up in the days prior to the peak, then come to a head, then soften and fade into the background.  That doesn’t mean they’ve become unimportant.  It just means that they’re surrendering the podium to give their Peers a chance to Speak Up.  The Energies marked with a *Timespan are likely to become very strong again after the indicated Timespan has elapsed.

  • 28 March 2020 9:30 pm PDT, The need to Express yourself (Chariklo Initiates Mars 29 Capricorn).  *6 Months.  See also next entry.

  • 30 March 1am PDT, There are Things you Feel strongly about Expressing, but you don’t Feel like you have Permission to Speak out about them.  Many of these Things aren’t very Clear to you yet, making it all the more important that you Talk about them, because Talking will help you Get Clear.  So Give Yourself Permission to Ramble, without having to Make SenseIf you do Feel at all Clear, Shout it Out.  You don’t have to be – or Want to be – Perfect.  If anyone tries to shut you up, find new Friends and Allies.  The Things you need to Talk About and Get Clear About and Shout Out will turn out to be Critical for the Repair of the Planet (Ixion Stationary 1 Capricorn).  *5 Months.
  • 31 March 8:40 am PDT, A Big Change in your Values allows you to Explore New Directions.  Yes, you do have Power and your Opinion and Input are Important to Solving these Problems (Sedna Initiates Venus 28 Taurus).  *3 months.
  • 31 March 10am PDT, Focus on What You Want, whether it’s Clear to you or not.  If it’s not, just make a stab and follow it with “…or something like that.”  It’s actually better if you’re vague.  If someone tries to pin you down or put you down, change the subject or suddenly remember an important appointment (Moon on North Node 4 Cancer).  *1 Week.
  • 31 March 11:30 am PDT, Don’t Argue with Anyone.  Just Express Yourself, when it Feels Safe, and be Open to others Expressing Themselves.  Spend as much time Listening to others, as you spend Expressing Yourself, and Suspend Judgment while you’re Listening.  If you’re Suffering a Noisy Fool, take a third party aside and Ask them about themself  (Saturn Initiates Mars 1 Aquarius).  *6 Months.
  • 31 March 7:30 pm PDT, Big Changes in our Boundaries with Other People that don’t Feel Optional.  Trust your Sense of what Feels Important (Pluto Initiates Pallas 25 Capricorn).  *1 Year.
  • 1 April 11am PDT, What are The Most Important Probabilities that you need to be Ready to Deal With?  What other Possibilities are you Discounting because you don’t Believe they’re Probable?  How would you Prepare for them if they suddenly became Probable?  What are you Ignoring? (Pholus Stationary 5 Capricorn).  *5 Months.
  • 2 April 6:20 pm PDT, Paying Attention to your Vitality and Taking Full Responsibility for it.  If that’s a Difficult assignment, Reorganize your Priorities till it becomes Second Nature (Moon on Varuna 2 Leo).  * 1 Week.
  • 3 April 6:15 pm PDT, Beginning to Understand Why you’re being put through this Gauntlet (Neptune Initiates Mercury 20 Pisces).  *3 Months.
  • 3 April 9:30 pm PDT, If the Threats to your Survival Feel Overwhelming, Tap Out your Vulnerability, then Pray that the Universe Give You All That You Need to Stay Safe  (Quaoar Stationary 5 Capricorn).  *5 Months.

  • 4 April 8:40 am PDT, The Emotions that you’re Feeling are Real, but you’re Attributing them to Current-Lifetime Events, and they’re Karmic, they’re not Present-Moment.  You have what amounts to an Addiction to these Emotions, so when they Arise you Grasp them.  Emotions need to be Felt and then Let Go, to make room for the Rest of Life.  What would it be like for you if you did that?

Would you Feel Differently?  Even if you Feel Guilty, that would be Progress – you’d have Let Go of your Addictive Feeling and made some room for the Rest of Life.  You’re still Alive, right?  Now go back to your Original, Addictive Emotion.  It’s Still There, right, it hasn’t gone anywhere?  You don’t have to Grasp it – it’ll always Be There.  When it arises, Let It Come then Let It Go (Moon opposes OR10 5 Virgo).  *1 Week.

 

Tumultuous Week 1

March 27, 2020

The coming week will continue to be Tumultuous and then some, Up and Down and All Over the Place.  Till I have time to write about it, squint your eyes, look at this chart, and Ask yourself, “In a general kind of way, what might a chart like that imply?”

If you got an answer like “Busy” or “Crazy” or “Volatile” you’re right in the ballpark.

The potential Hot Spots include…

  • 30 March 2020 1am PDT (Ixion Stationary 1 Capricorn).
  • 31 March 10am PDT (Moon on North Node 4 Cancer).
  • 1 April 11am PDT (Pholus Stationary 5 Capricorn).
  • 2 April 6:20 pm PDT (Moon on Varuna at 2 Leo).
  • 3 April 9:30 pm PDT (Quaoar Stationary 5 Capricorn).
  • 4 April 8:40 am PDT (Moon 5 Virgo).

The basic concern is our Personal Response to Climate Change and all of its implications – and don’t for a moment think that the Coronavirus and the resulting Scrambling of “Civilization,” as we knew it, aren’t an integral part of Climate Change.

“There’s no reversing it.  That’s why we need a whole new world, and we all, every one of us, has a powerful role to play as a midwife of this rebirth.

“Taken through that lens, you begin to see that you’re not powerless at all.  Far from it.  The world is not falling apart in front of our eyes so much as it is falling into our hands.  What will happen if we’re brave enough to catch the falling pieces?

“That’s why it’s so impossible for any… Person to tell any other… Person… what their… commitment should look like.  We don’t know that special thing that you bring to the movement…  And we can’t wait to see the magic that will happen [when you bring it].”

–Mary Heglar, “Here’s Where You Come In,” Wired Magazine, April 2020, pp.18-20.

Gonggong

March 24, 2020

I just discovered that the dwarf planet we’ve been referring to as “OR10,” which is short for one of it’s Discovery-process codes, “2007 OR10” (also known as minor planet 225088), has received an official name!  It’s Gonggong, after a Chinese Huper-Headed Serpent or Demon or Dragon who is most famous for Knocking the Planet out of kilter and thus causing the Seasons, Precession of the Equinoxes, and devastating Floods.

This fits quite well with the Interpretation that we have been using for OR10, Intrusive Memories, usually Karmic.  Gonggong was a Water god, and Karmic Memories usually trigger Heavy and perhaps Overwhelming Emotions (ie, devastating Floods) which have the Power, if Embraced, to Knock the Ego out of kilter.  Dwarf planet Nessus (Abuse and Privilege) has been traveling with OR10 for the last several years – Abuse is almost always Karmic.  Nessus has now moved on deeper into Pisces.  Dragon is the symbol and an alternate name for our Karma, and for the Moon’s Nodes.

The Demons show up below at around 2:30…

Changing Vitality Patterns New Moon

March 24, 2020

We’ve been going on at length this last week about asteroid Moira, named after the Goddess of Fate.  We can rephrase that sentence as three Questions: Are we as individuals Fated to repeat the Experiences of the Great Depression and the Black Death?  Is Western Civilization Fated to Collapse, like all Civilizations that came before it?  Are we as a Planet Facing the inevitable End Times?

Well, in Virtual Reality we’re already doing all those things, aren’t we.  Most of the time Most of us can’t tell the Difference between Present-Moment Hard-Copy Reality, and the Life-Like Holographic Fragments that our Karma constantly feeds us, and this New Moon sets us up for that Big-Time (in the 24 March 1:30 am New Moon chart at 5 Aries, Mercury [Awareness] Merges with dwarf planet OR10 [Intrusive Karmic Memories], and that’s in Pisces [Unfinished Karmic Emotional Business] to boot).

We aren’t referring to the Idiots who spout off about the Coronavirus being fake news – they’re on a whole different Bum Trip.  We’re referring to the rest of us.  I mean, Most of us in Former or Parallel Lives were in one Plague or another, way too many Economic Discouragements, a Civilization Collapse or two, and an End Times.  As Ursula Le Guin says in Buffalo Gals, “Coyote is always Dying.”  Those Experiences were Traumatic, so it’s no wonder we still Remember them vividly.  Until we can watch all of those film classics with complete Detachment, we’ll continue to ReExperience their Toxic Scat.

I don’t know how many noble Trees have been sacrificed to the philosophical struggle between Fate and Free Will, but I can assure you it was a Waste.  Fate and Free Will, which we usually refer to as Fate and Choice, is a Duality, an Either/Or.  Real Life is Both/And, it’s Multifarious and Unitary.  Either/Or is always a property of the Observing Mind, not a property of External Reality.

Any time we get Stuck Believing that a Duality is Real, we’re not only Off the Tracks, but we’ve swallowed the Bait in someone else’s Political Crab-pot and we’re about to be somebody’s dinner.  Political is the adjectival form of Power – we’ve Given our Power Away to someone else (the New Moon Merges with Lilith [Self-Sovereignty and Obeisance] and Chiron [Dead Ends and Miraculous Escapes]).

The Mythological Moira had three Assistant Goddesses.  One of them was Lachesis, who was in charge of measuring How Long your Karma will last.  When we become Conscious, Fate becomes Choice.  So the asteroid Lachesis, through the lens of Choice, gives us license to End Self-Sabotaging Habits at Will.  The hard part of that is our own OCD – we’re all Obsessive-Compulsive to some extent.

It’s like switching back and forth between a manual transmission and an autocratic one.  When we lapse into Habit instead of Awareness, we kill the engine in the manual car at stop signs, and then we try to shift the autocratic one.  If we do this daily, we’ll soon develop a Habit of taking a split-second to Notice which car we’re driving, before we stop or accelerate.  Whenever we begin a new Process, it takes us a while to develop “Body Memories” of our Actions, that make them automatic.

If rather than starting with the Recognition that a new Process will take a bit of Practice, we start with the Notion that “I’ll never be able to do this!” then we don’t even try.  We have tremendous and persistent Motivation to End our Self-Sabotaging Karma, as it repeatedly puts us into Discomfort, sometimes extreme.  But as long as we regard our Karma as being Externally Sourced, our Resistance to Change is even greater than this Motivation.

An early step is distinguishing Responsibility from Blame.  Many Resist the idea of Creating Their Own Reality because they feel like they’re being Blamed for their own Misfortune.  But they totally miss the point.  When “We” Create Our Own Reality, the “We” is not our Ego, but our Soul.  Making the Jump from Identifying with our Ego, to Identifying with our Soul, is not Easy.  It usually feels like a Death, because it is, an Ego Death.  Since the Ego’s Job is to Prevent our Death, it fights like Hell to Resist.  We have to Learn to finesse that.

Blame involves assigning Guilt about some Past Event.  On the other hand, Responsibility means Being Willing to Change Future Outcomes.  Those are very different.  We may look for apparent or adjacent “Cause” of our Self-Sabotage, in order to help us Design Strategies for Changing Future Outcomes, but even that is seldom effective, because even though it’s sometimes explained with that Metaphor, Karma is not about Cause and Effect.

Karma is Inertia.  The Cause of Karma is that you Built a Habit at some point in your Past Experience, and that Habit has become Obsolete.  Maybe on “your” (your Soul’s, not your Current-Lifetime Ego’s) former planet they put the brake on the right and the gas on the left, and “you” were a truck driver there, so “you” had a zillion reps to cement that Habit in place.  And now someone’s trying to tell you that it’s “your own” fault that “you” keep hitting the gas instead of the brake?  Of course your Current-Lifetime Ego considers that Outrageous.

It’s Obvious that it must be a Demon “Causing” this problem, because “you” aren’t even “Home” when it happens, “you” are thinking about something else.  Or at lease an Evil Twin.  Until we work on it, usually with great Effort for a long time, our Karma is Unconscious to us, precisely because it’s about Habits that we developed so thoroughly that they’re Hard-Wired into “ourself.”

There are so many other ways to Interpret our Self-Sabotaging Habits.  This is just one of them.  It’s literally True only in the Both/And sense.  We present it because it’s a Useful way to conceptualize what we’re up against when we work at Letting Go of our Karma.

We bring all this up because asteroid Lachesis, which symbolizes Potential Success about Choosing to Change or End a Lifelong Self-Sabotaging Habit, is very Strong at this New Moon (it’s Stationary at 3:40 pm PST 25 March in 8 Leo, Trine to the New Moon).  Not only that, the Habits that are most Open to Change, are Habits around our Health (Lachesis Conjunct dwarf planet Varuna [the Life Force, our Vitality])how Timely is that?

Even in the best possible circumstances, much to most of our Karma is not accessible to the Conscious mind.  So if we want to Choose to Change or End a Lifelong Habit of getting Sick, we need to use our Magnetic Creativity, ie PIAVA (see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/), because Dynamic Creativity is only capable of directly impacting our Conscious Reality.

In spite of Western European Culture’s addiction to Chemistry, it’s actually more Effective to approach Wellness through our Spiritual and Emotional Bodies.  I don’t for a moment Deny that the Coronavirus is Alive and Well in 3D Reality.  I can’t speak for everyone, but in the Personal Lives of anyone reading this, this New Moon makes it very clear that the Coronavirus for us is not Present Moment.  It’s Karmic, a Hologram of our Past Traumas, a Paper Tiger, a Shadow.

First, Lachesis-Varuna is Squared [Challenged] by asteroid Karma [our Karma]. 

Second, Lachesis-Varuna sits at the focus of a Finger of God [Pay Attention!] from the Sextile between Mercury-OR10 [Awareness of Intrusive Karmic Memories] and dwarf planet Quaoar [Survival] on the South Node [Karma, Held Emotions]. 

Finally, the New Moon, Merged with Lilith-Chiron [Reclaiming our Power], Opposes asteroid Sappho [Self-Love] and dwarf planet Makemake [Manifestation], while… 

Sappho-Makemake is the focus of a Finger of God from Karma and Mercury-OR10 [Pay Attention to using your Karmic Memories to Manifest Present-Moment Self-Love by Poor-Sweethearting the Helplessness of your Karmic Self], and…

Mercury-OR10 is the focus of a Finger of God from Sappho-Makemake and Lachesis-Varuna [Pay Attention to making a Loving and Gentle Connection between your non-Present-Moment Visions and your Healing].

Oh, and dwarf planet Orcus [Oath-Breaking] Opposes Mercury-OR10.  Karma often has its origins in Oaths or Vows; if we can Channel a fairly Clear Vision of the Drama that sources our Intrusive Memories, we may be able to Revert the Ancient Oath that is at the Heart of our Attachment to 3D.

Like so…

Whether we’re Conscious of it or not, our most likely Emotional Response to the Coronavirus is Fear.  So we might Choose a PIAVA such as Tapping (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzVd6Ww0as4) to kick-start the Healing of our Karma

“Even though I well remember Sickness and Famine unto Death, I Deeply and Completely Love and Accept Myself…”

Supplemented by Theta Healing (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava/theta/)…

God/Goddess, Creator of All There Is, I Command that for me and my Loved Ones, 2020 be filled with Good Physical and Financial Health.  It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done.  Thank You, God/Goddess! … Show Me!

If your “Show Me” isn’t a picture of Wellness and Abundance, Tap Out any flaws you find in the picture, and then do Theta again.  Repeat the two Prayers as necessary till you get a Perfect Show-Me and a surge of Joy up your spine.

Alternatively, we could zero in on the Flying Squirrel Configuration that has Mercury-OR10 as the head, Karma and Quaoar-South Node as the hands, Lachesis-Varuna and Sappho-Makemake as the feet, and Orcus as the tail.  Notice that a Flying Squirrel is a Kite [Directed Grace] inside a Square Fez [Mystery School] – we could regard it as a Self-Resolving Fez.

Self-Resolving or not, the Prescription of any Fez is to Avoid Anal-yzing the diagonal Quincunxes…

  • “God/Goddess, Please Grant me the Manifestation of Self-Love for, and in spite of, any Karma I might have to the Contrary [Karma Quincunx Sappho-Makemake].”
  • “My Survival Karma and my Perfect Health are entwined in Mysterious Ways; I Ask that they be disentangled and Healed [Quaoar-South Node Quincunx Lachesis-Varuna]”

Intuition, Choice, Self-Sovereignty IV

March 23, 2020

As much importance as we assign to the Meaning of asteroid Moira, it behooves us to look in detail at her Retrogradation.

Planets appear to go backwards or Retrograde when, on our way around the Sun, we “pass” them.  It’s like when we pass another car on the freeway – if we focus on the other car, it looks like they’re going backwards.  Of course we’re all going “forward,” but the sort of astrology we use looks at the planets as they’re seen from Here.

To filter out the effect of the Earth spinning on it’s own axis, we have to take a snapshot of the Sky at the same time every night to detect an other planet going backwards.  And of course we think the other planets and Stars “rise” in the East and “set” in the West, but that’s the Earth’s rotation.  The other planets, when moving “forward,” actually move from West to East, so on our daily time-lapse photo series, “backwards” movement is East to West.

When a planet goes Retrograde, it crosses a given patch of Sky thrice – once prior to its Retrograde Station, a second time while it’s Retrograde, then after its Direct Station, a third time.  A Spiritual Purpose of the moving planets is to Educate us.  When we have to suffer through a Lesson three times, we know that it’s an Important Lesson.

Moira’s Retrograde Station, on 21 March 2020, occurred at 19:05 Scorpio.  Her Direct Station will occur on 15 June at 7:30 Scorpio.  She first crossed 7:30 on 22 January, and She’ll cross 7:30 again on 15 August.  So our Moira-in-Scorpio curriculum spans 22 January to 15 August, and 7:30 to 19:05 Scorpio.  So we’ve finished the first Repetition of this Deep Exploration (Scorpio) of Fate versus Choice (Moira), and beginning the first Remedial session.

Astrological Signs are divided into twelve “Duads” of 2½ Degrees each.  For Scorpio, the first Duad is the Scorpio Duad of Scorpio, the second Duad is the Sagittarius Duad of Scorpio, etc.  So our span of 7:30 to 19:05 is about the Aquarius through Gemini Duads of Scorpio.  The Meaning of these are…

  • Aquarius Duad – Deep Examination (Scorpio) of our Relationship to our Community and Culture (Aquarius); are we Victim of, or Adept with (Moira), our Community and Culture?  We had this Lesson initially from 22-29 January.
  • Pisces Duad – Deep Examination of our Unfinished Emotional Business; does it Victimize us or are we Enthused by the Opportunity to Confront our Held Emotions and Let Go of our Self-Sabotaging Karma?  That Lesson was 30 January through 7 February.
  • Aries Duad – Deep Examination of our Spiritual Creativity; does it Burden us or Motivate us?  Initial Lesson 8-17 February.
  • Taurus Duad – Deep Examination of our Relationship to Matter; does it Rule us or do we Rule it?  First Lesson 18 February through 1 March.
  • Gemini Duad – Deep Examination of our Willingness to Let Go of Who We Are in Order to Allow a Greater Identity to Form; Victim or Master?  Preview 2-22 March.

Now that Moira is Retrograde, we now go through this curriculum in reverse.  This second iteration is when we really get the opportunity to study the material – the initial set of Lessons merely introduced the Issues, mostly as Questions.  Now we begin to look not for Answers, but for Strategies for dealing with the Issues.  This is Real Life, not college, so the Issues don’t have Right-or-Wrong Answers, they only result in new ways of Organizing our Experience.  Eventually they’ll result in Wisdom, but that may take many Lifetimes.

So our curriculum for the next three months looks like this…

  • 23 March-11 April, Gemini Duad, Are we Victims of our Losses, or are we Grateful for the Opportunity to Grow a New Identity?
  • 12-25 April, Taurus Duad, Do our Possessions and our Health Define our Identity, or are we Adept at Manipulating Matter and at Manifesting Wellness?
  • 26 April-7 May, Aries Duad, Are we Clear about what Inspires us, and do we Allow it to do just that, or do we Shut Down our Deepest Desires in order to avoid rocking any boats or Confronting our Programming?
  • 8-19 May, Pisces Duad, Yes, we’d rather Die that Feel or Do That again.  Do we Cower before this Fear, or do we Recognize it as an Invitation to Liberation from our Limitations, and Bravely Embrace the Fear as our Power in Disguise?  Remember that Bravery is the Fundamental requirement for success between 2020 and 2055 (Saturn-Pluto), but don’t forget that we still have access to what we Learned between 1982 and 2019, that Spiritual Forces Surround and Assist us.
  • 20 May-15 June, Aquarius Duad; So, do we Choose to spend our Attention and Energy on Ruing what we don’t like about the World we Live In, or do we Let that World Go and Persistently Devote One-Pointed Attention to a Vision of the Community that We Want to Live In?

The third and final series of Lessons is mostly about Exercises that allow us to Acknowledge our new-found Confidence that we now know how to…

  • We now have Confidence in our Ability to Focus our Energy on a Community that Enlivens us, whether we Feel that we’ve Created it already, or we still need to PIAVA it more, all the while staying in Gratitude for what we have already Manifested in the way of Community.  Aquarius, 16 June-11 July.
  • We now have Confidence in our Ability to Recognize that any Experience we don’t Like is an Opportunity to Jettison our Karmic Pattern to Create it again and again, and Let It GoKarma is Dead.  The only thing that keeps it Alive for us is our Unwillingness to Let It Go, because we’re so accustomed to it, and frightened by the possibility that the Alternative could be worse.  It won’t.  Pisces, 12-23 July.
  • We now have Confidence in our Ability to Recognize the Sources of our Inspiration, Invite them when they’re Absent, and Follow them Wherever they lead us, no matter what anyone else will think or say.  Aries, 24 July-2 August.
  • We now have Confidence in our Ability to Manifest What We Need and What We Want, When We Need It.  Taurus, 3-10 August.
  • We now have Confidence in our Ability to Recover Quickly from Losses, Be Grateful for What We Have Kept, and Be Able to Swivel Quickly when Conditions Change.  Gemini, 11-15 August.

We need to get very serious about dumping this Karmic shit, and our Belief in it – which perpetuates it – while we still can.  Otherwise we’ll just be Dancing on the Wheel for several more Millennia on some other Planet after this one has finished Atlantis II.  Or on this one after it has split in two.

“When the apparition ended, there in his notebook was ‘The Gospel According to the Dark.’  The handwriting was his, but he had no memory of setting down her words…

” ‘Say to the Nations, let there be no light upon the face of the Earth.  Let the machines all cease their movements, the wires their humming.  Let the skies be empty of satellites and silver birds.  Let the forests return and the watercourses find their way.  All things seek their Mother – save man only.  Now is the hour of Her return.’ …

” ‘Not one syllable of all that is written will remain.  Of the former things, not one will be remembered.  Did you suppose that what was written by the wind on water should last forever?  How much shallower are the traces left by man.‘ ”

Intuition, Choice, Self-Sovereignty III

March 22, 2020

The 21 March 2020 Station of asteroid Moira (Fate and Choice) also includes a hidden feature that holds a lot of Promise (a Septile Fez – a Configuration comprised of three Biseptiles and one Septile; we Interpret a Fez most easily by interpreting its Diagonals).

In this video, Rita Wilson explains a traditional, and Powerful, Manifestation process…

Basically, she Achieves sufficient Clarity to be able to Extend a healthy quantity of Positive Emotion into her Vision, and a series of Miracles follow, both Initiated by her Clarity (Dynamic Creativity), and also Bestowed by “Outside Forces” that she Inspires (Magnetic Creativity).  It’s a good Metaphor for what’s going on in this chart Pattern.

An astrological “Fez” is a Configuration that looks like one of those Turkish felt hats, an isosceles (equal-sided) trapezoid or trapezium, like so…

The Angles between these planets are in the Seventh Harmonic – that is, they’re multiples of one seventh of the way around the Zodiac.  The Seventh Harmonic is about Timing.  When you’re trying to Manifest something, Timing Is Everything.

This Fez tells us that, in particular, the Time is Right for…

  • Focusing your Attention Fully on your Mission (diagonal Saturn [The Most Important Thing] Triseptiling the North Node [our Mission]).  This won’t be easy, because any number of other Priorities will attempt to intervene – such as using your Dynamic Manifestation Skills (Plan, Execute) and Magnetic Manifestation Skills (PIAVA, see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/) to Assure your Survival.

But if you Give First Priority to Your Mission, your other Priorities will take care of themselves.  Scary, I know.  If you Think or feel like you already know what your Mission is, be sure to suffix it with “…or something like that.”  Our Mission is vastly multidimensional, and the Intellect is merely Dual, so Thinking you know what it is will never be more than partially correct.

Feeling like you know what your Mission is, isn’t much better, because “Feeling like” is really Thinking.  Naming your Mission is similar, as Verbalization is always filtered through Thinking, unless you’re Channeling or doing Automatic Writing or Free Association.

But if you can Feel your Mission in your Body, without Verbalizing it, you definitely want to spend time Focusing Intently on that Feeling in your Body.

Plan/Execute and other Dynamic Manifestation Skills are very difficult without Verbalization.  But a great advantage of Magnetic Manifestation Processes is that they require only vague Verbalization.  For instance a PIAVA such as…

“God/Goddess, Guide me so that everything I do is Directly Applicable to My Mission in this Lifetime.”

…is sufficient.  Preview all of your Actions and PIAVAs with that one, even your Dynamic Creativity applied to your Secondary (for now) Priorities such as Survival, and you’ll stay on track.

  • Growing our Consciousness by Focusing on the Ephemeral more than the Visible (diagonal asteroid Juno [Growth in Consciousness] triseptiling Neptune [Material Confusion and Spiritual Clarity]).  Growth in Consciousness usually requires a shift in Identity, aka an Ego Death, so if you Discover that you’re Avoiding Discomfortable Changes, take a small step toward those Changes instead.

Material Confusion is certainly a prominent part of our Current Moment Reality, but rather than trying to Grok what’s happening to your Species and your Planet by following the News closely so you can Anal-yse it, PIAVA that your Intuition tells you where you’ll end up after this Big Disruption, so you can start Maximizing your Adjustment to your Future Self and Role now, and not waste your Attention on short-term Noise, of which there is plenty.

And of course you’ll also want to PIAVA that you are Available to your Intuition, so you’re Open to Receiving it, Trusting it, and Following its Guidance.

Asteroid Moira might seem like a bit player, but She governs what may be The Most Important Thing we can Learn on this Planet – the Difference between Fate and Choice. 

That Difference – which is synonymous with Letting Go of our Karma – determines whether we’re Victimized by our Life Force, or Adept at Managing It.  It leads Directly to Enlightenment or Ascension, and it’s Essential to Surviving this Decade’s Descent of the Soul into Matter (Uranus in Taurus).  If we don’t Master this before the Age of Aquarius arrives In Earnest (starting this coming December), we’ll find ourselves Living in a World of Warring Ideologies (Aquarius as Fixed Air) and 5G (a possible source of Coronavirus symptoms, as we’re literally Cooked by Microwaves) instead of Living in Collaborative 5D.

This is the beginning of a poem by Kristin Flyntz, titled An Imagined Letter from Covid-19 to Humans…

Stop.  Just stop.
It is no longer a request.  It is a mandate.
We will help you.
We will bring the supersonic, high speed
merry-go-round to a halt.
We will stop
the planes
the trains
the schools
the malls
the meetings
the frenetic, furied rush of illusions and ‘obligations’ that keep you from hearing our single and shared beating heart,
the way we breathe together, in unison.
Our obligation is to each other,
As it has always been, even if, even though, you have forgotten.
We will interrupt this broadcast, the endless cacophonous broadcast of divisions and distractions,
to bring you this long-breaking news:
We are not well.
None of us; all of us are suffering…

Intuition, Choice, Self-Sovereignty II

March 21, 2020

In our previous post about the 21 March 2020 (5:20 pm PST in 20 Scorpio) Moira Station (prominence of issues around Fate and Choice), we focused on the Self-Resolving Challenge (Diamond Star) to our Intuition (dwarf planet Asbolus), whereby we implicated Victimhood (Fate) and Codependence (dwarf planet Hylonome) as primary vehicles for Obfuscating our Intuition, and hence the Exploration of Choice and Self-Sovereignty as Pathways toward Opening it.

Our Codependence Semi-Consciously censors our Intuition, to remove Insights that might upset our Delicately Balanced gondola.  We don’t need to be in a Dependent Relationship to be Codependent – our Reality could be Constrained by Obedience to the Worldview of a long-since-gone Relative or Teacher or Bully.

And our Victimhood, by Denying our True Power, including our Power to Manifest the “Impossible,” also Strangles our Intuition, because we reject out of hand Suggestions that we have the Power to Create What We Want.  “Impossible” is defined by our Worldview.  Notice how so many things, like the 4-minute mile, become commonplace once someone has broken through the longstanding Limitation.  The Extensions of this Hypnotic process can be Extreme.

There are several other Energies that we can Emphasize as well.  For instance…

  • How our Learned Values can contribute to Preventing us from Permanently replacing our Victimhood with our Power (dwarf planet Ceres [Sustainability] T-Square to [Challenged by] the Opposition between Moira and Venus [Values]).

Values Originate in the Heart.  However, the Heart is Corruptible.  We may have Admired someone, and developed Habits that were Designed to Please them, but which Betrayed our own Native Truth.  We may have been Punished for failing to follow someone’s Codified (Religious) or Arbitrary (Addictive) Beliefs about what was Righteous, and formed Patterns that were Designed to Avoid Abuse.  Neither of these kinds of Patterns of Thought, Feeling, and Behavior serve our Enlightenment.

  • How Growth in Consciousness is Emphasized when we Rectify our Values and our Sense of the Mystical, or the Sense of Wonder and Awe we have when our Ego takes its proper place relative to the Natural World (Finger of God [Pay Attention!] pointing to asteroid Juno [the Growing Edge of our Identity, Identity being our critical leverage toward 5D], from the Sextile between Venus and Neptune [Sacred Mystery, often Occluded by someone else’s Mythology about it]).

A friend contributes this poem…

“You heal the Land and the Land heals you.

“We are in a symbiotic relationship. When we tread upon the earth
“in its natural form with its diversity
“flora and fauna,
“we find comfort, insight, and healing from the Land.

“The attention and gratitude
“you give to the earth, helps heal.
“Each close inspection of a leaf or petal
“sends energy back into the Land itself.
“Into the Earth.”

—Sylvia Platt

  • Great Grace for the Intellect, Allowing us to Grok the Relationships between Identity, Sustainability, and Intuition (Air Grand Trine between Juno, Ceres, and Asbolus).  This is a fairly Unique Opportunity, since none of these three are usually very available to Anal-ysis, let alone their Interrelations.
  • Great Grace around our Relationship to Materiality, Opening Doors to our Grokking of the Mysteries of Manifestation (Earth Grand Trine between Venus, Hylonome, and Nemesis).  Have you been Noticing Synchronicities lately?

The old saw “Be Careful What You Ask For” is very relevant here, however.  Too much Optimism and too much Ambition can lead to Flying too close to the Sun, and melting the Wax that holds our artificial wings together.

Two of the three Trines in the Earth Grand Trine have another planet at their Midpoint, Neptune and the Stationary Moira Herself.  In other words we have five of the six points that would make a Grand Sextile [Magic Wand].  To complete the Wand, we need to Consciously contribute the Energy that would be supplied by the sixth point.  The sixth point is at the Midpoint between the Great Star Sirius and the Star Castor.  Castor is about Polarity, particularly the Optimistic end of it.

Sirius is a more Serious business…

“Sirius… indicates that the mundane may become sacred, that the small action of the individual has a large effect on the collective.  The individual, however, may be sacrificed to this collective expression, or may gain fame and glory.  It is the blast of energy that can burn your fingers or help you achieve levels that seem impossible… Sirius can bring immortality to its bearer, but the price may be the burning away of the mortal flesh.

“One of the most striking examples of Sirius was its heliacal rising with Pluto in early August 1945, which occurred at latitudes 32 to 35° North.  In this period two Japanese cities at that latitude, Hiroshima and Nagasaki, experienced nuclear attacks.  Thousands had their flesh burnt away, and yet they have been immortalized.”

–Bernadette Brady, Brady’s Book of the Fixed Stars, p.85.

Here’s the chart…

We can see a similar drama playing out today between the Antichrist and Dr. Faustus, er, I mean, Fauci…

We can still Shoot for the Moon, but need Finesse more than Brute Force if we want to remain in 3D.  Which brings us back to the old question of whether we can achieve 5D without Abandoning 3D.  And can 5D and 3D coexist?  Recognize that 3D is Blind to much of 5D, and not the other way around.  But don’t Forget your Finesse.

The ultimate in Analytical Grace lies is Recognizing the Presence of Mystery.  From the Perspective of 3D, 5D is simply a Mystery.  What do we Learn in Mystery School?  We Learn to tolerate Paradox as the alternative to Contradiction.  We Learn that it’s not Either/Or, it’s Both/And.

What If Our Visitor Could Talk

March 20, 2020

Here’s an excerpt from an intriguing Channeling of the Novel Coronavirus, by Jeff Vander Clute…

https://jeffvanderclute.com/articles/a-message-from-the-coronavirus/

“The gifts of the virus:

  1. “Slowing down humanity’s frenetic activities
  2. “Activating networks of cooperation
  3. “Spreading helpful DNA
  4. “Upgrading humanity’s immune system
  5. “Creating the conditions for peace and well-being
  6. “Saving lives, especially over the long term, by strengthening the web of life

“Here is the message for humanity, from the Coronavirus:

“My friends, it is true that I am here to bring closure to the inharmonious ways of being that are causing harm to humans and the whole web of life.  All the same, I am not a vengeful being or anything that is intended to be destructive.  I am simply the rebalancing agent in the overall equation of life’s evolutionary process.  By fighting me with fear in your hearts, you oppose the larger natural systems and cause me to take other forms.

“What I am, and my fundamental purpose, will not be deterred, for I am life itself acting through the available forms of distribution.  The virus that you see me as is one of an endless series of permutations.  This kind of process is one of the ways I innovate life forms and deliver new DNA sequences that will eventually be shown to be helpful.  The back and forth between humanity’s collective immune system and the virus is raising consciousness as humans examine their interactions, and it is literally increasing the intelligence of the superorganism that is the species as a whole…
