The Sky Is Changing

October 14, 2019

Brenda Hoffman gives us a great Perspective on the next few weeks – and years…

https://lifetapestrycreations.wordpress.com/2019/10/14/the-sky-is-changing-not-falling/

“You are shifting minute-by-minute even though you have difficulties believing such is so.  For there are several pieces within you that need to be in place before you enter 2020.  Not because the year is necessarily magical or even accurate for all calendar keepers, but instead that you are entering a double two year.

“For some, this double two year will mean finding a secure home base – whether a current home or a new home, or community.  Others will discover a new earth life perspective.  For many of you have been pining for another dimension or focus while of the earth.

“Such is logical given you have felt like an earth visitor since you arrived.  For you have refused to acknowledge you are fully of the earth in this lifetime.  Not because such an admission is terrible, but instead that you maintain too many memories of what was.

“Earth life has never been particularly easy.  And given your responsibility for helping earth shift from 3D to 5D as you achieved the same for yourself, this has been an exhausting lifetime.  As is often true in 3D, you probably are ready for a warm blanket and a comfy chair in front of the fire to satisfy your comfort needs.

“Instead, you are uncovering pieces of earth life you did not expect from environmental issues to leadership declarations.  You expected to rest and then receive hosannas after shifting the earth and yourself.  Instead, you feel as if you are walking through quicksand for your body, especially your feet, feels heavy and cumbersome.  Where is the joy?  Where is your completion party?

“So it is many of the pieces you now find almost unbearable, will ease in early 2020, and be completed by year’s end.  Not because such is an earth plan, but because of the internal drama, many of you are now undergoing.  You will likely find yourself exhausted, isolated, worried, and depressed for the next few weeks.  Not what you expected, but emotions pushing you through this final 2020 preparation stage.

“The glaring issues for you now have always been there, merely sugar-coated as a pretense that all was well.  Issues pummeling into your being with few, if any, ideas for change.  For changing the issues that now disturb you, is not within your role.  Such will be completed by those who follow.  You have accomplished your major steps.

“Many of you continue to request a role designation despite your exhaustion.

“Your exhaustion is that you do not know how to rectify the ‘wrongs’ you see so clearly.  Again, those wrongs have always been there; you merely refused to see or sense them.  So it is you are identifying that which is not appropriate for 5D you.  Those following will have the solutions.

“Your role now is to end your fear, your drama about how terrible everything is.  For you are functioning as ‘Chicken Little,’ saying over and over, ‘The sky is falling. The sky is falling.’  While in truth, the sky is changing.

“Your fears, your depression is based on what you cannot do.  Those solutions are for your followers.  So it is that by the calendar year 2020, you will likely allow yourself to know your joy role has little to do with social media or your leaders.

“Your role is to be in joy.

“Memories of past issues that haunt you – whether as a leader or of the groups negatively impacted by leaders – have little to do with new you.  Yet, before you can accept that piece, you must clear those memories related to what is now visible.  For just as you did not have solutions in the past as a leader or follower, you do not have solutions now.  For such is not your role.  Accepting that as your role merely forces you down the ‘rabbit hole’ of confusion and fear.

“Your piece is to shift yourself from fear to joy – knowing you are not responsible for shifting the quagmires you find in your leadership, social media, and the press.  If such were your role, you would be excited and joyful to tackle it, just as you were dedicated to helping the earth shift from 3D to 5D.

“Move toward joy, and you will find your role.  Continue to fear that which you do not have skills to shift, and you will stagnate in place.

“Trust those who follow, as we trusted you.  You have different skills – most importantly for 2020 and beyond – to display your joy.  For you are the sunbeams, those following will discover as they end earth fears through constructive shifts, just as you have done throughout your transition.

“Your fears are ghosts from past lives – lives that have little to do with who you are now.  That is what you will discover in the next few weeks.  For you cannot fully sparkle if you have fears that the earth – your creation and delight – is not able to circumvent the odious leaderships now destroying all that is important to you.  Allow yourself to delegate the next earth shift to those who have completed such roles time and time again – just as you created many planets and places in addition to the earth.

“You are the creator beings.  Those who follow are the social butterflies shifting those now of the earth – either more completely back into 3D or forward into 5D.  Your followers are social creators.  You are planet creators.  Allow you and your followers to work together to create a shining, loving example of Universal possibilities.

“For the earth was an experiment, that you changed into Universal reality.  Now allow the decorators, if you will, to brighten the earth and its inhabitants in ways you do not understand.  All you have to do to assist them is to shine your joy light day in and day out.

“So it is you will release your current fears through example and need the next few weeks.  So be it.”

Still Chopping Cherry Trees 3

October 13, 2019

As we’ve mentioned previously, the Digital Age occupies two Centuries while the every-twenty-years Jupiter-Saturn Conjunctions occur in Air Signs.  The Industrial Age spanned the time when these Conjunctions occurred in Earth Signs.  There is a toggle between Ages – after eighteen or so Conjunctions in Earth, there was one in Air (1980), then one back in Earth (2000), then eighteen or so in Air.  The Digital Preview of 1980-2000 spanned, almost to the day, the time between the introduction of the IBM PC and the Dot-Com Crash.  The fact that computers reached practical desktop size at the dawn of the Preview could be a clue that Decentralization and Individual Creativity may indeed be part of the full Digital Age.

We’re in the last three months of the Industrial Debriefing that spans 2000-2020.  The Industrial Debriefing allows us to sort through the Meaning of the Industrial Age, and Decide what to take with us into the next Age and what to leave behind.  We’re getting down to the wire.  One characteristic of the Industrial Age was the development of the Wage Slave.  The decline of Unions, the development of the Gig Economy, the demise of pensions, and the return to a Dickensian economy, all imply that we may be leaving that behind.

Today, among the planets we track, there are 8 in Air Signs, but 15 in Earth Signs, pinning our Attention on our Decisions about which Karmic Habits to Abandon and which to Maintain.

Seven of the Earth 15 are in Capricorn, Creative Earth.  Capricorn basically means Just Fix It – these are the things we have to Just Fix if we want to transcend 3D…

  • Dwarf planet Quaoar, symbolizing our Survival Instincts.  We’ve seen how the end of the Industrial Age has decimated manufacturing jobs.  Coding will survive for a while, till the Robots take over it as well.  As anyone who’s ever tried to work there knows, social services are Poverty Country, until your Culture begins to Value Hupers more than Dollars, if it ever does.
  • Dwarf planet Hylonome, or Self-Sovereignty.  Is the Centralization of Power a permanent feature of Huperity, or will the End of the Patriarchy promote Decentralization?  Some pundits see the Blockchain accomplishing that, and its existence suggests that there may well be a Trend toward Decentralization of Power.  Centralization makes Self-Sovereignty much more Difficult.
  • The South Node, our Karmic Inertial Baggage, including our Held Emotions.  As long as we continue to Avoid our Held Emotions, it will always be Us Against Them, as Them is where our Intolerable Held Emotions appear to reside.  Any of us stuck in that kind of Duality will never make it out of 3D.
  • Saturn, aka The Most Important Thing.  Do we know what that is?  Well, at the moment Saturn is still Conjunct the South Node, so the Most Important Thing is Embracing our Held Emotions.
  • Asteroid Hopi represents Respect For All Things, which is more than a nice platitude.  Because We Are All One and All Mirrors for One Another, any Disrespect for anything is a departure from Unconditional Self-Love, which will keep us stuck in 3D.
  • Dwarf planet Chariklo is about Self-Doubt and Self-Confidence.  Thought operates in Duality; Intuition is Multidimensional, so it should be Obvious that we need to operate from our Intuition to stay in 5D.  Self-Doubt is a Thought.  We need to Learn to Trust our Intuition.
  • Pluto is about Changing Paradigms, which is what is Happening as we move from the Industrial to the Digital, from Obeying the Patriarchy to Trusting our Intuition, and from 3D to 5D.  Pluto doesn’t allow foot-draggingl; if we Resist the Changes, Pluto will just Drag us into the New Paradigm.  We’ll be much better off Surrendering to it.

Virgo is the Mutable Earth Sign – Mutable as in Mutation, or Change.  Like the Changing Lines in the I Ching.  Virgo, which stands for Ego Death, holds five planets here.  Of course we’ll need to Endure Ego Deaths if we are to move beyond our Old Industrial Paradigm…

  • Asteroid Nemesis itself means Ego Death, as She was the Goddess who Punished those who Felt Guilt (or should have), and Guilt Requires an Ego Death.  In Virgo it’s a Double Whammy – just what the Witch Doctor ordered for a Big Change in the Zeitgeist.
  • Dwarf planet Orcus is about Pattern-Breaking.  He was an Etruscan God whose job it was to Beat Up Oath-Breakers.  But our Obsolete Oaths are what Create Karma and Unconscious Limitation, as we Forget the Oath but the Habits we built to Serve the Oath remain for Lifetimes.  We need to enter New Ages with Clean Slates.
  • Asteroid Sappho symbolizes Self-Love.  As we mentioned earlier (see Hopi), Unconditional Self-Love is a prerequisite for Ascension.
  • Asteroid Asteroid Juno is about the Growing Edge of Consciousness, and any major Growth in Consciousness is likely to require an Ego Death, so Juno in Virgo can Accelerate our Growth.
  • Moira represents Fate.  Fate is what happens to us when we are Unconscious of our Karmic Patterns.  When we Grow our Consciousness enough to Recognize our own Patterns, we substitute Choice for Fate.  We can’t follow our Intuition if we don’t have Choice.

And finally, in addition to Uranus, two other planets are joined at the hip in Taurus, asteroid Vesta and dwarf planet Sedna.  Together they stand for all of our Unconscious Beliefs that have their Roots in Fear.  Even many of our original “Choices” to make those Ancient Karmic Vows were Motivated by Necessity or Fear.  They may have been the only Choice we had if we wanted to eat, which wasn’t a Choice at all.  Taurus is Fixed Earth – like Crystal, very Difficult to Change…

But very Powerful.  And as you know, Uranus (Soul) is also early in Fixed-Earth Sign Taurus (ie, Descending into Flesh).  That in itself has been, and will continue to be, Requiring Ego Deaths and Major Changes in our Self-Concept.  An Iteration of Ego can last anywhere from Moments to Lifetimes, but Soul is Immortal.  Most of us to one degree or another Identify with our Physical Body.  We can touch that, and we’ve Learned to Trust our Sense of Touch.  Learning to Trust an Immaterial and Invisible Soul is more Difficult, usually Requiring Lifetimes of Meditation and Study.  We all have many of those Lifetimes, or we wouldn’t be here on Earth at this Time.  We just need to Open Up to them.

Still Chopping Cherry Trees 2

October 12, 2019

Meanwhile, Pluto (Compulsion and Transformation) and dwarf planet Chariklo (Self-Doubt/Confidence) are still Merged, and with them asteroid Hopi (Respect for All Things).  We are in Truth Unlimited Spiritual Beings, so when we Judge anything that we Believe to be Other, we actually Judge ourself.  And deep down, we Know it, we just don’t like to admit it because so many of us Define our Ego by what we’re trying to Convince ourself that we aren’t.  You know, Those People that supposedly Do or Believe all those Terrible things.

And to top it all off, this Pluto-Chariklo-Hopi (Don’t Pretend Like That Isn’t Your Issue – Even If It’s Mine Too We’re Just Mirrors For Each Other!) Challenges (T-Squares) the Eris (Revelation of Denial) Full Moon.  These aren’t Games (well, unless we’re Clever enough to Understand that, to the Soul, Ego Is just a Game) – we’re being told pretty Clearly by the Universe that we need to get to Neutrality before the Poo really hits the fan.

Three months from today Pluto Initiates Saturn.  Pluto is the Master Timekeeper, determining the Zeitgeist of the Planet.  Saturn means The Most Important Thing, so the beginning of a new 30- to 40-year Saturn-Pluto Cycle is a Big Deal.  Let’s go back and look at the last Century through the lens of Saturn-Pluto…

  • October 1914 – Pluto Initiated Saturn in 3 Cancer, “A man bundled in fur leads a shaggy Deer,” a 33-year Cycle.  Sounds like we were in for a Cold third-of-a-Century.  The Initiation was three months after the start of World War I.
  • August 1947 – Pluto Initiated Saturn in 14 Leo, “A huper Soul seeking opportunities for outward manifestation,” a 35-year Cycle.  Mop-up begins after World War II, and the Cold War starts.  By twenty years later the US economy (as measured by the S&P 500) was worth five times as much as it was in 1947.  While the Cycle wound down, the size of the US economy was reduced by 60%.
  • November 1982 – Pluto Initiated Saturn in 28 Libra, “A person becoming aware of spiritual forces surrounding and assisting them,” the Cycle spanning 38 years.  1982’s Jupiter Effect, an Alignment of all nine then-planets within a quarter of the Zodiac, presaged the Harmonic Convergence of 1987-92, with its End of the nine Hell Cycles of the Mayan Calendar, which began when Cortez landed in Mexico.

Eighteen years later the US economy (S&P 500) was worth seven times as much as it was in 1982.  Nine years after that, as the Cycle began to wind down, it was worth half as much.  During the following (ie, most recent) ten years the US government printed tonnes of new money and gave it to the already-wealthy.  Without that Grift, er, Gift, the economy would probably have continued to fall.

  • January 2020 – Pluto will Initiate Saturn in 23 Capricorn, “A soldier receiving two award for bravery in combat,” to begin a new 33-year Cycle.  Well, we can Hope that the awards are delivered for past combat, though considering the likelihood that Climate Change will create Wars, Famine, Pestilence, Conquest, or all four, that may be in vain.

In December 2020 the Digital Age will begin in earnest.  We would Expect a major crash in the US economy of about 70%, as the anomalies created by the Grift of the 1% are worked off.  It’s entirely Possible that Jubilee could grant some degree of economic Freedom to everyone, which could produce a flood of small-scale Creative Entrepreneurship developing the beginning of the Digital Age while effectively addressing Climate Change.

It wouldn’t hurt Visualize that, or something better.  Focus on the World You Want To Live In, not the World You think Everyone Should Live In.  Everyone Wants something slightly (or hugely) Different, and there’s no reason why all of those Worlds can’t occupy the same Time and even the same Space – except Our Desire That Others Have To Live By Our Rules.  There should be plenty of room for soldiers to win multiple combat awards – which could even be in online Digital War Games.  Or, after the previous inhabitants have been evacuated, they could enjoy Analog War Games on Islands while they sink beneath the Sea.  Atlantis the Sequel.

Still Chopping Cherry Trees

October 12, 2019

Those of you who grew up outside of the US may not know the metaphor.  It’s a famous bit of Amerikan Propaganda that when Jorge Washington was questioned about who chopped down the local Cherry Trees, his Response was “I cannot tell a lie,” setting the original precedent for Political Prevarication, as it doesn’t actually answer the question about the Trees.  We’re referring to the Confluence of the asteroids Aletheia (Truth of the Heart) and Veritas (Truth of the Head) that occurred recently near the same Degree as the Pluto and Chariklo Stations (Compulsive Self-Doubt).

The 13 October, 2019 (2pm PDT) Full Moon at 21 Aries, Conjunct (Merged with) the dwarf planet that symbolizes the Revelation of What’s Been Denied (Eris), extends the same Energy and then some.  The chart…

…includes…

  • Asteroid Pallas (Boundaries) Merging With Aletheia-Veritas.  One of the sharpest Boundaries we draw is the one between those folks to whom we tell the Truth, and those folks who have not Earned the right to know our Truth.

That’s predicated on whether or not we’re actually Conscious of our own Truth and whether or not we’ve Liberated ourself from our Karmic need to Obscure our own Truth.  Through much of Herstory we were forced to swear Loyalty to Despots, often Abandoning our own Heart’s Truth in the process.  Either/Or Vows like that Transcend Physical Death and become Karma in subsequent Lifetimes.  Which is Lit Up pretty Brightly by this Full Moon…

  • Asteroid Karma (Karma) is Merged With Lilith (Self-Sovereignty), so all of our Karmic Patterns that inhibit our Sovereign Right to Own and Live our own Truth, are Lit Up for Revision.
  • Karma-Lilith is Opposed By asteroid Juno (the Meristem or Growing Edge of Consciousness).  Astrological Oppositions introduce False Dichotomies.  All Dichotomies are actually Untrue, because Reality is not Dualistic, only the mind is.  So what we actually Feel from this Opposition is the Irresistible Pull of our Self-Sovereignty Exposing our Karma in order to bring it into Consciousness.
  • This fecund (and fetid) Opposition is Challenged (T-Squared) by the Stellium of Jupiter (Expansion), dwarf planet Ceres (Sustainability), and asteroid Bee-Zed (Transcendence).  In other words, the more we Resist becoming Conscious of our Self-Sabotaging Patterns, the worse they get.

Which is why Life has been so replete with speed bumps lately, even though we’ve been free of Big astroevents for the last week or more.  Let’s reiterate that – the Sacred Timeline that the Planets lay out for us is Asking us to…

Stand Up, Turn Around, Look our Sisiutl Karma straight in the face, get Honest about Owning it as Ours, and Accept the Need to Change it.

In case you’ve Forgotten, Sisiutl is a two-headed Monster who still Lives on the West Coast of North America, and who is so Terrifying that, if you look at It, you will be turned to Stone.  Sisiutl is vanquished only by Standing Your Ground and Enduring the Stench, which requires Sisiutl to approach so closely to you that its two heads see one another, which turns Sisiutl Itself to Stone.  Terrifying, but the Department of Homeland Security has been totally unsuccessful in its Efforts to Eliminate It, because the Department, constitutionally unable to face its Karmic Xenophobia, turns and runs away whenever Sisiutl gets close.

  • This T-Square is actually part of a Grand Cross (four planets equally spaced around the Zodiac), with dwarf planet Asbolus (Intuition) Opposing Jupiter-Ceres-BeeZed.  In other words, we Know what Karma we need to Change, we just need to stop Denying it.  If you’re ever in Doubt about any Intuition, just Ask yourself, “What If I Did Know?”

Intuitions aren’t always Prescient, but they are Prescriptive.  They just Serve the Soul rather than the Ego.  So if you Act on an Intuition that turns out to put your Ego in hot water, it wasn’t the Intuition that was wrong, it was your Ego that needed an Upgrade.

I look at the shifting sands of my finances. I know I am not alone in this one. And, I sense my relationship to money changing. What I see when I look into my financial energy field is Gnomes. Yes! Earth elemental beings busy working on my behalf. I see rainbows, unearthed treasures, and gold. I…

Quiet?

October 7, 2019

Hmmm.  We routinely review Stations, Initiations (first Conjunction in a series), and Moons (New and Full), and that usually covers most Disturbances in the Forest.  And certainly the Moons are making it pretty clear that we aren’t done yet with all that Saturn-Dragon Karma or the Aletheia-Veritas Scorpio Truth-Facing.  B-u-t, it Feels like there’s more going on, so we better have a look…

And yes, today (6 October 2019) dwarf planet Ixion (Forbidden Genius) Opposes dwarf planet Chaos (Unlimited Potential).  That’s Big enough to have an impact.  We have enough history with these dudes to be able to extend their orbits back into only about the 17th Century so we don’t know where this Cycle began.  Ixion is faster (250 years per loop, about the same as Pluto) than Chaos (310 years), but since their orbits aren’t circular, their travel per year isn’t constant, and they’ve been Opposing off and on since about 1850.

Oppositions Manifest the Second Harmonic, which is about Ritual.  There’s no question that there’s Power in Repetition, but there are Times when accumulated Change requires a New Approach.  The Intuition of Greta and her fellow travelers, for instance, that CO2 accumulations are at that stage, probably indicates just such a Time.  While it’s long but thought-provoking, here’s an excellent dissection of the World’s Political Economy, another good example of accumulated Need for Change…

https://www.wired.com/story/trump-style-nationalism-make-globalism-great-again/

Oppositions recommend either Embracing or Rejecting Ritual, but both Ixion and Chaos strongly suggest that Change is due or overdue. Here’s another good example about Moving Outside of “the Box”…

https://www.permaculture.co.uk/articles/therapy-gardening-and-permaculture

Ixion represents what we’ve been forced to Repress, and advises that when our Values are so glaringly Violated that we can’t help but Act contrary to the social conventions we’ve been programmed to obey, we need to Act.

And Chaos symbolizes all the things that we’ve been taught are not Possible, an Open Invitation to Exceed these Limits even if we don’t know how and even though we know we’ll be considered Loony just for talking about it – if we can even Conceive of Transcending our Limitations!  We need to be Conscious of our Limits before we can do that.  For most of us, when we do think about it, we assume that our Limits are akin go the “Laws” of Physics.

Much Stress, in other words.  If we’re a Republican or a Tory who actually has a Soul, our Stress is very easy to understand.  For the rest of us it may not be as obvious.  It may just feel vaguely Stressful, or we may just be Blaming somebody else for anything that’s not flowing swimmingly.

For anything in your Life that’s taking more Effort than it “should,” try Reframing it as an Unconscious Limitation of your own (Chaos).  If it’s Unconscious, how can we Access it?  We need to PIAVA – Pray, Intend, Affirm, Visualize, Ask, Command, Wonder – or otherwise Invite the Unconscious to Open Up for us.  When I Command (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava/theta/) to be Informed, the first answer I get is about Worthiness.  Chariklo (Self-Confidence and Self-Doubt) is part of what’s been Lit Up by the recent Pluto Station and our Karma work.

When I try to Command Worthiness, I can’t stay awake!  So I Tap Out (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzVd6Ww0as4) Worthiness: “Even though I may not Feel Worthy of what I Need, I Deeply and Completely Love and Accept Myself”… and then try Pushing my way through Commanding Worthiness, alternating Tapping and Commanding till I can see myself Receiving what I Need when I get to the “Show Me” stage.

The chart…

…suggests that Unconscious Fear is involved (Vesta-Sedna Finger of God).  Do you tend to stick to conventional ideas about things because you Fear Ridicule by your Peers or “Superiors”?  Were you ever Ridiculed or Teased as a Child?  How did that Feel?  Have you Reframed your Humiliation or Shame into their Abuse yet?

Could it be that the delay in your Appreciation of What You Want, is also partly due to your Hesitation – or to be blunt, Fear – about Transgress a social convention (Ixion)?  If so, which social convention might it be?  The Dualistic mind easily moves to Blame, so even if this seems Obvious, it’s probably a good idea to PIAVA it, to get the Perspective of the Intuition, which is always broader in scope than mentality.  You may be involved in a Delicate Political Dance, and may not be Willing to Let Your Tiger Out, or your Kitten, even if it might help.  But it’s important to be Present with What You Really Feel, even if you don’t share it.

Not much Delicate about the Political Dances in the News, but it remains to be seen which Strategies win the battles, and which ones win the wars.

 

Chopping Cherry Trees IV

October 3, 2019

Here’s a great example of how we as consumers really do have Power over the faceless Corporate World…

https://www.organicconsumers.org/blog/consumers-force-lobbying-group-big-food-brands-re-brand-itself

“To a child, all Nature is new.  Given the chance, a child interfaces with a Nature that has no names, no labels.  Grass is not green; it is not a lawn; it is Mystery.  This is what a child connects with; Mystery.  But the child grows, learning to walk and talk, then to read as their schooling begins.  Names and labels are now being attached to Nature.  That ‘stuff’ that tasted strange is now green grass, and Mystery is banished, along with that previous connection.

“As we are taught more and more about Nature, so, without our ever realizing it, we actually know less and less.  Our intellectual knowledge grows, but our direct knowing recedes.  Moving through our school grades, we are now pushed into an intellectual world that seeks to understand Nature, yet adding ever more of the labels of limitation.  If once, as a child, we had a real connection with Nature, by the time we are an adult, the average student is locked out of any true relationship with a metaphysical Nature.

“Intellectually, most adults relate only to a physical Nature, accepting, as does everyone else, that this is all there is.  But there is so much more!  How can we intellectually understand Nature, when it is not an intellectual expression?  It makes no sense!  Like us, Nature is an expression of conscious intelligence, but this, our greatest potential, is abandoned, littering the classroom floors where it was destroyed by the scissors of unintentional ignorance and thoughtless separation.

“Throw away the keyhole – if you can – and let me give you a different, considerably larger view.  The Nature that we see and relate to on Earth is the physical reflection of a vast, holistic, intricate, metaphysical and universal Nature.  In everything in life, the metaphysical precedes the physical.  There are no exceptions.  Consider the implications of this!

“When all this becomes your inner knowing – not a concept – your actual reality, then your whole relationship with Nature and life is forever changed.  You are now able to have a relationship with the nonphysical Nature that cannot be physically seen or touched, but which can be experienced and listened to.  Nature communicates, but nobody is listening.  We have lost the skill.  We no longer realize that there is a vast difference between hearing and listening.

“Two people talk to each other, but neither truly listens; they hear.  We can hear and think, but we cannot listen and think.  Thinking takes us out of the moment… we cannot think our way into the moment.  To listen, we are required to be in the moment.  This means that to listen to the inaudible voice of Nature, we have to be in the moment.  We are not good at this!  It means being fully conscious.”

–Michael J. Roads, Entering the Secret World of Nature, pp.182-4.

Today, 3 October 2019, the two asteroids that symbolize Truth, Aletheia and Veritas, met in the middle of the Sign that means Diving Relentlessly into the Heart of the Matter, Scorpio.  They were joined by the asteroid that symbolizes Boundaries, Pallas.

In the chart of this Union…

…this Protection of Truth is part of an Easy Path (Double Trine Bridge) across a Challenge to Transcend our Resistance to our Instincts (T-Square to a Stellium of Bee-Zed, Jupiter, Ceres, and Jupiter).  The other part of this Easy Path is our Compulsion to Know the Importance of Respect for All Things (a Stellium of Pluto, Saturn, and asteroid Hopi).  The sources of the Challenge (Opposition under the T-Square) are Becoming Conscious of our Choices (Juno-Moira) and Confusion about our Sovereignty (Neptune-Lilith).  Bear in mind that the Unconscious does not know Direction, only Dimension.  Direction is a property of the Dualistic Observing mind.

Consequently we often encounter the Exact Opposite of what we Expect.  Someone totally ruled by their Instincts, who Respects only themself, who like Goebbels works very hard to set Boundaries against the Truth, who is very Confused about their own Sovereignty, and who is not Conscious of their Choices but only Obsessed with their own Perceived Fate, is a Poster Child for this Energy.  While the Star itself has “moved on,” the Midpoint of Scorpio is associated with the Royal Star Antares.  The Royal Stars promise great success, but with a caveat, a downfall.  The downfall of Antares is to seek Intensity and Drama for the sake of Intensity and Drama.

Chopping Cherry Trees III

September 30, 2019

We’re about to crash through the back facade of this Trauma Drama; we’ll be done by noon PDT 3 October 2019.  Of course we can always Extend the Pain, by making Decisions based on what we’re Feeling.  For instance, someone tries to sell us a case of Rotten Peaches, or a malformed Backstop for our Little League futbol field, and we’re so upset that we Vow never to Trust anyone again.  The attempted Fraud and our Reactions to it are a consequence of a Temporary Disturbance in the Force, and if we React to the content of a corresponding Drama, we can continue the Disturbance, in our own Lives, long after it’s passed.  We can even make it into Karma.

So it’s important to Recognize that the Disturbance in the Force is occurring, and know its Timing.  That certainly doesn’t mean we laugh off the Rotten Peaches or the Bum Backstop.  But it means we deal with the attempted Fraud for what it is, not what it means to us personally or how it Offends our Ego.  The Disturbance and the Timing here is two-fold.  First dwarf planet Pluto (Transformation or Formation of a New Trance, Compulsion) Stands Still (is at Max Strength) on 2 October (11:30 pm PDT).  And the Energy of Truth reaches Max Strength on 3 October when asteroids Aletheia and Veritas Conjoin (around 5:30 am PDT).

In other words we can Expect a Strong Compulsion toward Truth, and perhaps the Revelation of New Truths that Create a substantial Shift in the Zeitgeist.  The chart of the Pluto Station actually suggests the latter…

…as the Revelation of New Information (dwarf planet Eris) Challenges our Old Values (Eris Opposite Venus T-Squared by Stationary Pluto).  It also Challenges our Self-Confidence (recently-Stationary Chariklo Conjunct Stationary Pluto).  This makes a good example of how not to make Decisions under Duress.  New Information Challenges our Values, which is likely to make us Tentative about Expressing what we newly Believe – we don’t have a catalog of Justifications for our New Values yet.  Values don’t Require Justification – in fact, Nothing Requires Justification – but since we’re always being asked to Justify ourself, we Believe we Need it.

Our Values in fact are part of the Truth of the Heart, so any Justifications we come up with are actually spurious.  The Truth of our Heart Just Is.  It’s not up for argument.  People lament that folks Prejudge and Reject what doesn’t fit their Expectations.  That lament would be appropriate if we were dealing with the Truth of the mind.  But the Truth of the Heart isn’t subject to Debate or Negotiation.  However, it can Change on a dime if the Right Information arrives at the Right Time in the Right Way.

“I often dream about intuition itself and in my inane (sic) attempts to ‘dualistically’ interpret these dreams have found the following quote to be pretty sound in that respect and perhaps fitting as a reply for this blog on this day
“ ‘Information that rises to consciousness from a synthesis of your complete memory and experience.  Intuition in dreams and awake may also arise from an unconscious contact with the mind of another person, living or dead, or from your contact with the universal mind, or memory of nature, that summarises all experience and knowledge.  Such intuition may occur because, as modern physics suggests, the very substratum of our physical existence rests upon sub-atomic particles that in a real sense transcend time and space.  When our limited ego touches this timeless self, it leaps beyond the usual barriers of experiencing and knowing.

” ‘Our bigger mind speaks to us in much the same way as our ordinary memories come to us. Most of us however, have made something like tapes or recordings in our mind. So when we think, or try to get a new idea, we are often simply replaying something we read or heard or felt in the past. Listening is a way of quietening these tapes so something new can come to us. This is often called intuition, knowing something without someone else telling us or experiencing it through our senses.’

And I agree completely.  I’d add though that Eugene Gendlin, author of the famous-in-the-60s book Focusing, has another fabulous book called Let Your Body Interpret Your Dreams that includes a number of techniques for getting by the Conspiracy of the mind and Ego to exclude information that’s contrary to our Unconscious Beliefs.  Since one of the most compelling reasons for Exploring our Dreams is to gain Revelations about those very Beliefs and bring them into Consciousness where we can Examine them and perhaps Transcend them, getting past this Conspiracy is Important.

And I also want to add that James Oschman’s research (https://www.faim.org/dr-james-oschman) tells us, as related in a seminar by John Veltheim (https://www.bodytalksystem.com/practitioners/details.cfm?id=381), that our Mitochondria have direct access to all of the Information in the Universe, with exceptions.  Mitochondria are independent organelles that live in our Cells, and are responsible for Energizing our bodies through the ATP Synthesis process and Respiration.  They have their own genetics, which are inherited solely from our mother.  As we age, we lose Mitochondria.  The supplement PQQ can restore them.  The two Exceptions that can block this source of Universal Intuition are Heavy Metals or other toxins, and Held Emotions.

We usually think of Intuition as an Input to our Intelligence, but the Channel runs both ways.  You’ll recall that dwarf planet Asbolus/Intuition was Stationary/Strong a week ago, dwarf planet Chaos/Unlimited Potential is Stationary as we speak, and today’s New Moon Conjoins dwarf planet Makemake/Manifestation.  So it’s certainly an excellent time to talk about Intuition and Manifestation – Intuition tells us how the Energy in the Universe is Organizing itself, and Manifestation tells the Energy in the Universe How We Would Like It To Be Organized.

There are a number of factors that determine how Successful we are at Manifesting, but getting our Held Emotions out of the Channel, aka Letting Go of our Karma, is one of the most basic.  We don’t talk about the Vertex, by the way, because it’s dependent on where you are on the Planet, and we write only about what applies to everyone on the whole Planet.  But the Vertex represents this very Channel.  Once we graduate to 5D, we’ll use this Channel Interactively, as we Negotiate with the Universe how we’ll Choose to Experience its Flow and Continuity.  We move in that Direction by Practicing our PIAVAs (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/).

The Channel is Magnetic, not Dynamic, hence the importance in our Lives of Transcending the Limitations of the Patriarchy.  That’s where the Current Era is headed, but you can Feel Free to skip on ahead.  You don’t need to wait for everyone else to get there, as that will take a while.  Nothing in 5D prohibits you from continuing to Assist 3D to Ascend, so you aren’t Betraying your Bodhisattva Vows.  And besides, any and all Vows are by nature Dualistic and Political (dwarf planet Orcus/Vows isn’t Lit Up just now).  Moving to 5D involves Abandoning Vows and Trusting your Compassion and your Instincts instead.  You can Trust that you won’t move to 5D without Compassion, because it’s an Integral part of the Collaboration and Cooperation with the Elementals that defines 5D.  Michael Roads will teach you more about 5D, in for instance his book Stepping…Between…Realities.

You’ll probably also have to Navigate this Channel to Transcend EMF aka EMR…

Chopping Cherry Trees

September 28, 2019

The chart for the Station of Chariklo (Self-Doubt and Self-Confidence), at 12am PDT on 28 September 2019, looks just like the chart of the Bee-Zed Station that we described in the previous post (once we remove asteroids Moira and Hopi).  The interpretation bears repeating, with a few minor edits…

Expanding Transcendence is Challenged by the Dance between Choosing to Become Aware of and to Trust our Instincts, and Sacred Confusion about our Identity.  The Identity Issue is about Bringing our Identity back Home to our Self and our Soul, rather than Investing it in someone or something External to us, such as a spouse or a job.  Confusion is always the first stage of Growth, as the Mental Cage we normally trap the Universe in, starts to warp and lead.  Sacred Confusion, all the more so.

Compulsive Attention to Self-Doubt and Self-Confidence is Challenged by the Dance between our Values and our Endings.  In other words this is about Letting Go of Obsolete Values that Inhibit our Self-Confidence, and all the Uncertainties that come with Changing long-standing Habits and Beliefs.

The whole business of Truth that we’ve been talking about is also tightly involved.

This is also, with another few minor edits, the chart for the overarching 2 October Pluto (Compulsion) Station.

Which brings us to the meat and potatoes of 28 September, the Station of dwarf planet Chaos (9am PDT) in 27 Gemini.  Chaos does not symbolize Disorder, but Unlimited Potential.  It is the supposedly chaotic state of the Universe before Zeus and the Patriarchs came along and organized it.  Of course we know that it wasn’t chaotic at all, it was the Matriarchy that had reigned since Time Immemorial.  Or rather, since Cyclic Time, or since No Time, as the Feminine is characterized more by Continuity and Flow than by the Separation and Discrimination that rules the Patriarchy.

All of the Horrible Monsters that Ulysses and Herakles and the other Heroes of the Patriarchy slew, are just elements of Feminine Power, painted over with the kind of mudslinging that again characterizes Politics today.  “Lock her up!” is a good example.  So in a very Real sense, the Unlimited Potential embedded in dwarf planet Chaos is the symbol of the End of the Patriarchy.  It’s good that the Antichrist is tied up by the Lilliputians of Truth – otherwise he’d be painting snakes coming out of Elizabeth’s head, as she rises in the polls.  We already know about Nancy.

Here’s the Chaos Station chart…

It’s not all that Threatening, actually.  The Grand Cross (big red X in a box) is pretty tame, and the only other red line is the other diagonal of a Golden Rectangle (the blue box).  A Golden Rectangle is Golden because the ratio of its short to long sides is the Golden Ratio that occurs so repeatedly in Nature.  Flow and Continuity, in other words.  It is significant that Chaos is joined by dwarf planet Asbolus, which symbolizes Intuition, and Opposed by Ixion, which stands for our Forbidden Genius.  In other words – as we’ve been saying for several to many years not, Our Forbidden Genius can unlock our Unlimited Potential, and our Intuition will be right there with them.  Of all days, don’t Dismiss your Intuitions!

The other 28 September astroevent is the 6 Libra New Moon (11:30 am PDT), which occurs within one arcminute of dwarf planet Makemake, symbol for Manifestation…

This chart contains only a Golden Rectangle, apart from the T-Square (red triangle) and the Tricolors (red-green-blue triangles).  The biggest Challenge is to our Soul (Uranus T-Square) – are we Willing to Trust (Eurydike) that the scary Changes (Lachesis) happening to our Body and our Vitality (Varuna), are happening in order to make more room for our Soul to Descend?  And of course most of us most of the time still React to Chiron, which Opposes the New Moon and Makemake, as an Unhealable Wound, rather than another Opportunity to Poor Sweetheart ourself into Miracles.

So we’ve got a Manifestation New Moon, a Soul Descending into Matter, and a lively Intuition to point us toward the Hidden Genius that will unlock our Unlimited Potential – and a few minor speedbumps.  Now tell me, are you going to Believe your Self-Doubts, or are you Willing to Cancel-Neutralize-Upgrade those, and Trust your Self-Confidence?  Why not Transcend your Doubts, and let Bee-Zed and Jupiter Expand you into Abundance.  After the 28th, Pluto rules the roost all by itself, and whatever Intention you Commit to here, Pluto will Amplify it tremendously between now and 2 October (11:30 pm PDT).  Then we’ll have our ultimate Moment of Truth (Aletheia Conjunct Veritas) on 3 October (8am PDT).

Then we get a well-deserved rest, as there are no other Stations till late October!

Well, except that the 13 October Revelation (Eris) Full Moon Lights Up everything we’ve been talking about all over again, making Strong Angles to Compulsion/Transformation (Pluto), Self-Confidence and -Doubt (Chariklo), Transcendence (Bee-Zed), Expansion (Jupiter), Truth (Aletheia and Veritas)Karma (Karma), and Intuition (Asbolus), not to mention Respect for All Things (Hopi), Boundaries (Pallas), Sustainability (Ceres), and Growth in Consciousness (Juno)!  This is good, right?  As diligently as we’ve been working, we don’t want to just let all this hard-earned Grace fade away without refreshers, do we.  Plus, it’s good to see the hot seat kept under the Prevaricators.

What about Brexit?  At the end of October the Stations Light up Vitality (Varuna), Karma (Karma), and New Beginnings (Klotho).  Sounds positive overall, if a bit Open-Ended.  While the Karma part reminds us that those who trump in church sit in their own pew, a Vital New Beginning sounds excellent.  Since Karma is a Paper Tiger anyway – if only we Remember that – maybe Life Is What We Make It after all.  Copious Prayer and other PIAVAing for Abundance (Having Enough to Share) and Jubilee (Forgiveness of Karmic Debt) should pay off handsomely for youalls, in spite of the dorks in charge.
