Fear of Liberation

The Heart: Understanding the vascular system, resilience & repair

Via Zoom at noon PDT 29 July 2021.

With Fate and Choice Exaggerated for the last several days (asteroid Moira Stationary 22 July) in the last few Degrees of Pisces (Letting Go of Excess Emotional Baggage), I imagine most of us have been doing significant Pruning in our Karmic Garden. The bottom line for asteroid Moira is that our Karma remains our Fate as long as it’s Unconscious, and it becomes Choice, Potentially, as soon as we bring it into our Awareness. That’s “Potentially” because even after we’ve Let Go of our Karma, we’re still surrounded by the Habit Patterns that we developed over the years, and Lifetimes, to Accommodate the Karma.

For instance, suppose we always wanted to Travel, but our Fear of the Abandoning the Comfort we Know always stopped us. The Stories we heard about the Pickpockets in Rome and the heavy Rains in India and the Vampires in Transylvania, didn’t help a bit. Well, we may have Let Go of our Resistance to Travel last week, but our Habitual Thoughts about those Pickpockets and Rains and Vampires may still be a Deep-Seated Pattern – the more reps we have Believing them, the sturdier they are.

We have elaborately-constructed Justifications for every Resistance we’ve ever had, and some of them aren’t even our own. Somebody’s Grandmother caught a nasty Flu and died once, generations ago, after she went out in the Rain, and ever after whole generations of people have been told that going out in the Rain “will be the Death of you.” Even after we’ve Let Go of our Flu Karma, we still may Fear going out in the Rain – we may never make the Connection.

This is why Consciousness is so Helpful. Karma has its own Timeline, including its own natural Expiry Date, and those Expiry Dates can pass without our ever noticing them. Without being Aware that we’ve left our Flu Karma at the train station on the way Home from work yesterday, our Chances of Connecting Fear of Flu with Going Out in the Rain diminish, and our Opportunities to Let Go of Obsolete Limiting Beliefs can pass us by. This is also why it is Critical to Recognize Confusion as a Valid and Important Emotion, and Avoid trying to Intellectualize it away. Confusion means that our Habitual Mental Cage of Limiting Unconscious Beliefs – the Justifications for our Fears and Limiting Beliefs that we’ve Memorized to Keep Us Safe, is losing Strength.

What’s left behind is usually Fear – Fear that Granny has left the Cage door open and Sylvester will be home any minute from work at the Mousery. Fear is another Valid and Important Emotion that we need to Avoid Intellectualizing away. If you really were facing a Sabre-Toothed Tiger in your kitchen, you’d Know it, you wouldn’t have to Intellectualize it. Even before we’ve Let It Go, Karma is always a “Paper Tiger” (a residual Symbol of Fear, not a Current-Moment Object to be Feared). Once we’ve Let It Go, Consciously or not, it becomes a Diaphanous Paper Tiger. We don’t have to Think about it, we just have to Look Through It.

Which is why we need to Work Hard to Distinguish our Emotions from our Thoughts about our Emotions. It’s not at all as Easy as it sounds. Any time you add an Object or a Cause or a Prepositional Phrase to an Emotion, you’ve Abandoned your all-important Emotion (the Original Intuition), and walked into the Fantasy World of Thought. Nothing wrong with Fantasy, but use it to your Advantage, not to Sabotage yourself. “I am Angry at…” is a Thought, as is “I am Angry about…” and “I Fear Vampires.” The Thoughts are just part of the Mental Cage we use to Create the Illusion of Safety. When we are Truly Safe, which many of us are a good deal of the Time (any time we aren’t Thinking about whether or not we’re Safe), we have no need for Thoughts to keep out the Dangerous Windstorms.

Even “I am Angry,” without the Grammatical Embellishments, is Misleading. “I am Angry” is a statement of Identity, an Ego-Identification, not a description of Emotions. When we really want to Clarify our Emotions, it would be “I Feel Anger” or “I Feel Scared” or “I Feel Pain” or “I Feel Safe” or “I Feel Ecstatic,” no more, no less. Rather than Embellishing your Emotional Clarity with Dysfunctional Thoughts, Go Inside, Locate the Feeling in your Body, and spend time Sitting With It. There’s so much to Learn from that process, and it’s not Intellectual. If it’s difficult to Locate, Ask yourself, “What If I Did Know?” and if the Answer isn’t Immediately Forthcoming, Wait for It. While you’re Waiting, take Inventory to see if you’ve already gotten the Answer but Dismissed it Out of Hand because it wasn’t Politically Correct to your Ego-of-the-Moment.

The 23 July (7:37 pm PDT, in 2 Aquarius) Full Moon, and the two weeks which follow, is about our Confidence in our Instincts (dwarf planet Chariklo [Self-Confidence and Self-Doubt ] Conjunct Moon), and our Lust to Reconnect with our Soul (asteroid Psyche [Goddess of the Soul ] Conjunct Sun). It’s Challenged by the Red Dragon of Enlightenment (T-Squared by minor planet Zhulong)…

Just as Unexamined Thought Separates us from our Emotions, Unexamined Thought also Separates us from our Soul. Our Concepts about Enlightenment will stand between us and Reunion with our Soul. Brenda Hoffman’s recent Channeling at https://lifetapestrycreations.wordpress.com/2021/07/25/this-isnt-who-i-am-is-it/ reminds us…

“This is a confusing time. Your new world is no longer linear.  Circular is your new action word – and soon-to-be, belief. Even though that which was is no more, this new is different than you expected…

“Your new world has very few clear divisions. The deciding factors of yesterday are no more. Your actions and beliefs change daily. So it is, you are flitting from belief to belief, action to action, and thought to thought. In 3D, clear-cut delineations were necessary to promote community thought. You are in a new place in a new time, discovering that nothing is clear regarding who you are or what you believe.

“That last concept is frightening because you are not used to the freedom of thought and action while of the earth. You are now exploring new frequencies, dimensions, beliefs, and actions in Universal terms – as has been true since you were conceived eons ago. But when you were of 3D earth, you limited your thoughts and actions to fit within the accepted parameters established by others to create a 3D cohesiveness.

“That 3D cohesiveness no longer exists.”

This Full Moon Challenges our Existing Unconscious Beliefs (asteroid Vesta [Unconscious Limiting Beliefs] T-Squares the Opposition between dwarf planet Chaos [Unlimited Potential ] and the Conjunction between dwarf planets Pholus and Quaoar [Global Change]). We need to parse this furthur. Quaoar symbolizes our Survival Instincts, and Pholus represents That Which We Haven’t Prepared For, but which is Essential. And Chaos is about The Zero Point Field, or the Vacuum of Space, which in the Quantum World is a version of the Infinite Improbability Drive that Zaphrod Beeblebrox pilfered (Douglas Adams, Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Universe, pp.76ff). You haven’t read that yet? That’s as Unprepared as not having bothered to see the definitive documentary Men In Black. The Centaur Pholus got himself dead by Failing to be Prepared.

Seriously, any Limiting Belief is Risky these days. We have to continue to PIAVA What We Want, NOT What We Think We Can Manifest. Ice Cream for Breakfast? The Antichrist for Ambassador to Xinjiang? World Peace? Environmental Justice? Sympathy and Understanding, Harmony and Trust Abounding? What Is It That You Want? Don’t Hold Back. You’re In Charge of Your Piece of the Pie. Clotted Cream, or Ice Cream? Which Is It You Want? It’s Not a Time to Think Small.

It’s None of Your Business What Others Want for Their Piece, unless you’re Negotiating Win-Win with them and Helping each other Out. Competition and Scarcity are Obsolete; revise your Thinking toward Cooperation and Sharing instead. You don’t want to Know how What You Want might be Delivered – you’re not In Charge of that. It’s not about the Mechanisms which might Create it; many of those aren’t invented yet. It’s about What You Want Created. That and That Alone is Your Assignment.

We’ve made it through our six Cuspal July Self-Love Challenges (Stations). We have some Sign Changes in the next few weeks. Venus and Mars enter Virgo on 22 and 29 July respectively. That will be Challenging, as our Values, our Actions, and our Relationships will all seek reorientation through Ego Deaths. Mercury moves into Leo 27 July, so the Mind should Sparkle, as long as we keep it out of places where it’s way out of its League – Emotions and Enlightenment for instance. Jupiter backs into Aquarius 28 July, and Ceres moves into Gemini 31 July. Our Emotions should calm a little, and our Notions of what Sustainability means will Expand as much as our Limiting Beliefs are, if we let them.

We start August with Atropos moving into Virgo on the first – more Ego-Death-like Adjustments to Replace Expired Karma with something more Constructive. Till 2 August (4:23 pm PDT) we’ll be Feeling our Consciousness continuing to Expand (asteroid Juno Stationary in 9 Sagittarius) to fill the Voids Created by the July Demise of our Self-Judgments. Then we pretty much Get A Break till the Ides of August, though the subsequent Exaggerations of The Truth of the Mind and Descent of Soul (Stations of asteroid Veritas and Uranus 19-20 August) are likely to Expand to fill the empty space.

Revelations

July 21, 2021

We’ve been taking pains, more or less, to indicate that we interpret dwarf planet Eris as Revelation of What’s Been Denied, on a personal level (Eris Stationary 20 July 2021 2:08 am PDT, in 25 Aries, #5 in the series), so as not to confuse it with Revelations per se, the Apocalyptic putative addendum to the Christian Bible. But there are a lot of events lately to suggest that we should consider it to apply to the Cultural and Hysterical levels as well…

We can’t borrow the pictures from this article because they’re protected, but do look into the first five or so pages (they scroll to the right) to see the “before and after” pictures of the floods in Erfstadt-Blessem, Germany…

https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/interactive/2021/europe-flood-before-after-images/

Not much of a Blessem, and just one of many places…

https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2021/jul/21/catastrophic-floods-could-hit-europe-far-more-often-study-finds

Even the Sky-Is-Falling climate scientists were “shocked.” Not to mention the story today where someplace in Henan, China received Eight Inches of Rain in an hour.

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/jul/22/china-floods-military-blasts-dam-release-water-as-floods-death-toll-climbs

We live in a dry spot near one of the planet’s great Raincoasts, and we Experience One Inch of Rain in a Day as a Pourdown.

And then there are the monster Forest Fires in the Western US that are sending smoke 3,000 miles to the east…

Or the Locusts…

Oh, and I almost forgot the rise of the more-contagious Delta Variant of our by-now “Olde Friend,” the Garudavirus. To quote Tony Faucheesy, “…If anybody here is lying, Senator, it is you.”

The Goddess Eris tossed a Golden Apple labeled “To the Fairest of them All” into a Feast that included all of the Iconically Bootiful usually-naked Greek Goddesses, and these Ladies fought over it like Crows and Seagulls. Evidently retaining the same Vanity, Ego astrologers today still interpret Eris as Discord rather than Denial. Denial is an epithet we, as Children of course, liked to throw at people who reject our Criticism, but it’s actually a Healthy Psychological process, used to mete Trauma to ourself in digestible batches, so we don’t get Overloaded and Revert. Those Greek Tragedies liked to portray people who were Trapped in their Fate, and of course Zeus and his drinking buddies loved to portray women as petty, fragile adornments that were addicted to Vanity.

We’ll discover otherwise shortly, as our next Self-Love Station in the Gauntlet is about exactly that – whether we Choose to remain in Denial and suffer the resulting Fate for the duration, or Choose to face the music, suffer the Ego Death, and emerge into Consciousness of our Fate or Karma, where we can Practice and Learn to Choose Alternatives on a Rep-by-Rep basis (asteroid Moira [Fate or Choice] Stationary 22 July 9:12 pm PDT, in 29 Pisces). If we Choose to Accept it, Venus [our Values] will Help here, entering as it does into Virgo [Ego Death] 22 July 5:36 pm PDT.

Plus, the Moon is Out of Bounds, starting 20 July 6:10 pm PDT, in 17 Sagittarius, till 23 July 10:39 pm PDT, in 4 Aquarius. When the Moon is Out of Bounds we tend to get Tranced Out by our Dramas, Confuse our Emotions with our Thoughts about our Emotions, and let our Victims out of their cages. With Moira about to Retrograde back furthur into Pisces, it’s all likely to be even more Intense. The Floods and Fires and Locusts et al are our Invitations to this Dance. The Moon-OOB maxes out when it’s Stationary (furthest South and turning about), 22 July 8:10 am PDT, in 25:39 South Declination and Longitude 11 Capricorn).

The Full Moon follows at 7:37 pm 23 July, in 2 Aquarius, a few hours before the Moon returns In Bounds. It’s a Fateful Full Moon, Merged with Moira, and only four Degrees from our original 8 July Self-Love (Sappho) Station.

Nemesis and Self-Love

July 19, 2021

Major July Self-Love astroevent #4 is an Exaggeration of Guilt and Blame (asteroid Nemesis Stationary 18 July 2021, 1:06 pm, in 29 Scorpio).

Someone I thought was my friend Betrayed me the other day, and I’m Helicoptering (my mind keeps going around in circles) about whether it’s their Fault for being such a Jerk, or my Fault for failing to Realize that I needed to set better Boundaries last week while we were Adjusting our Boundaries to better Accommodate Self-Love.

You don’t know what they did “to” me, but I hope you recognize that scenario, I hope you have a Strong Opinion about it, and I hope your Opinion is that It Was What It Was. Trying to figure out who to Blame is something most of us do in the Heat of Emotion, and if I’m Angry enough I might need to label two pillows, one THEM and one ME, and pound on them for awhile, as a therapeutic Exercise. But when anything is about Blame, we aren’t looking at the Real Issue. Every attempt to Blame ourself is an Opportunity to switch to Self-Love, especially this month, and Blame and Love Live in very Different Universes. Every attempt to Blame someone else for something, is a missed Opportunity to Notice we’re Stuck in Blame like a Pig Stuck in their own Poo, and Choose an Alternative.

Blame is a Complete, Closed, and Insidious Worldview, without clear Exits. No matter what’s “Wrong,” someone is always to Blame. Many, if not most, people Live their whole Lives without ever leaving the Blame Universe. Most of the time, many of us find it difficult to Think of an Alternative way to view the World. Yet we all Operate from the Unconscious almost all of the time. We even Blame the Ego (ours or theirs) for not being Conscious of the Unconscious. Blame and Self-Love reside in Completely Different Universes. So how do we Get Out of Blame then? And if Blame is Complete, where are we when we do somehow Stumble Out? In Guilt?

Nemesis the Goddess Punished Wrongdoers and Scofflaws. Our more modern Nemesis is the Enemy that we expect to be our Undoing, like my supposed friend. Well, yes, chronic Guilt and Blame will certainly be our Undoing if we continue to see the World through their red-tinted Glass, particularly so if we never Notice that the Glass is there. Which Noticing is, as is usually the case, a key to the Exit door. Omigosh, I’m Blaming, or I’m Looking for Someone to Blame! What can I do instead? Forgiveness is a lousy Alternative. We can’t Decide to Forgive, we have to wait till we Notice that Forgiving has occurred. And Forgiveness implies that there was something to Forgive, something Blameworthy.

The Difficulty is that we’re trying to Operate from the Ego, and the Ego is Stuck in Blame because it’s Attached to Cause and Effect. If there’s an Effect we dislike, there must be a Cause to Blame. It’s even harder to Escape the Closed Cause-and-Effect Worldview than it is to Escape the Closed Blame Universe. Most of us were Taught to Blame in Childhood, but almost all of us were taught that Cause and Effect is the onliest Operating Principle in the Universe. But it ain’t. Cause and Effect is just another artifact of the Dualistic Mind, and Reality is Perpendicular to the Dualistic Mind. So when it’s Helicoptering you, put your arms out like an ice skater, to slow yourself down to a standstill, and Notice that your Helicopter only has two blades, and you’re now looking in a third Direction.

Which is a great start. The meat of our Emotional Issue was in the blades. There’s nothing but a blank tarmac in the third Direction. Or maybe the airport cafe. And that’s the point. The two blades of your Helicopter, now represented by your hands, were beating each other up, or beating on your head. That’s enormously Self-Abusive. Now that you’ve extended your arms and Separated your hands, there’s Nothing there in front of you, except maybe lunch. Now you’re looking at a Different Universe, and if you’ve spent most of your Life in Blame, you won’t Recognize anything in it, because Up Until Now, you’ve never looked.

That pretty colorful thing on the other side of the tarmac – could that be a Flower? You’ve probably heard about those, but you may not have ever actually Looked at one. Who does it Blame, for what? What can we Blame on it? Is it Arguing with that Bee, or Making Love to it?

Love Is the Answer 3

July 18, 2021

We’re still deep in this Self-Love Pressure-Cooker Portal. We’ve endured the 8 July 2021 Challenge to Self-Love Itself (asteroid Sappho Stationary or Exaggerated), the 11 July Rebirth (dwarf planet Haumea Stationary), which always requires an Ego Death, the 13 July Reset of our Relationships (Mars Initiating Venus) with its Challenge to our Codependence, and the 14 July Scrambling of our Boundaries (asteroid Pallas Stationary). Of our six July Stations in the 25-29 Degree Zone, we’re three down and three to go. We don’t expect the last three to be any Easier than the first three, but we’ll get to that shortly.

Buried in the middle of this first trio was a 15 July Challenge to our Élan (Chiron Stationary 9:40 am PDT, in 13 Aries). It happens seven Degrees and two days from our Relationship Reset (Mars-Venus Initiation), so each event is prominent in the other’s chart. It proposes a Healing of our Abuse Karma. Not a Healing of Abuse, but a Healing of our Abuse Karma – meaning a Change that will echo back and forth across Time, with Potentially Huge Implications.

Occurring in July where it’s Surrounded and Embraced by Self-Love, and Supervised by our Soul (Uranus T-Square), it stands a good chance of Succeeding. But of course, as with any Healing, the Ego has to accede, and also as with any Healing, we have to Fully Embrace what we’re Intending to Heal before the Wound will Budge. The general rule, and it’s Solid, is that In order for Anything to Change, we must first Accept It Fully Exactly as It Is. Change means we’re Passionate about NOT Accepting Repetitions, but if we don’t first Accept Historical or Herstorical occurrences with Neutrality, the Change won’t stick.

Sound Contradictory? Contradictions occur only in Duality; in higher Dimensions, it’s Paradox. Passionate Neutrality is a Paradox. It means that we have no Emotional or Identity Attachment to Past or Future occurrences, in this case, of Abuse, but we have both Emotional and Identity Attachment to the Active Prevention or Avoidance of ongoing Current-Moment occurrences. If that sounds difficult to pull off, it’s because it is, when seen with the Dualistic Mind. When seen with the Heart, it makes perfect sense. One implication is that every setback is simply another Lesson in the ongoing Committed Effort. As with Addiction, we’re never Recovered, but always In Recovery.

But let’s look at the chart…

We see the two big red triangles, or Challenges (T-Squares). The upper one, pointing to asteroid Juno (Expansion of Consciousness), tells us what’s happening “to” us. The lower one, pointing to Uranus (Soul ), tells us what to do to succeed at the Task presented by the upper one, namely to Let Go of Our Abuse Karma.

In the upper T-Square, the Focus is on Expansion of Consciousness (asteroid Juno), and the Root of the Challenge is an Opposition between Abuse and Privilege (dwarf planet Nessus) and the Source of our Karma (asteroid Karma Conjunct dwarf planet Orcus). Orcus is about Oath-Making and Oath-Breaking. Karma results from an Oath or Vow or Promise, or even a Decision. When a Vow has Life-or-Death consequences, we avoid getting Dead by reorganizing our Worldview such that the Oath Limits our Perception of Reality. We aren’t a Person performing Military Service, we ARE a Soldier, our Identity, and the rest of our Reality follows from that base. When Soldiering becomes an Identity rather than an Action, one forgets that there are Options, and Karma is Created. Orcus Breaks Oaths by Reminding us that there are Options.

The 4½-year Karma-Orcus Cycle outpictures the stages of our Karmic Evolution in the Current Lifetime. The recently-completed Cycle began November 2016 in 10 Virgo – “Two heads looking out and beyond the shadows: The growth of true understanding, born out of the transcendence of duality even while immersed in the world of duality.” The New Cycle was born 14 July 2021 (12:49 pm PDT) in 12 Virgo, “After the wedding, the groom snatches the veil away from his bride.” Why would the groom feel the need to “snatch away” the veil, rather than just tenderly removing it? Both Insecurity and Disrespect are implied. This doesn’t mean that our New Relationship Cycle will necessarily be characterized by Insecurity and Disrespect. It does mean that, if we Choose to Pursue it with Passionate Neutrality, we can Potentially Banish Insecurity and Disrespect from our Relationships.

The chart of the 14 July Orcus-Karma Initiation (the Beginning of the Cycle) is the same as the Chiron-Station chart above, with one adjustment. In the Orcus-Karma chart, the South Node Conjoins Juno, and the North Node Creates a Balanced Grand Cross out of the Juno T-Square. That turns the Challenge into an Inconvenience. Since Banishing Insecurity and Disrespect from our Relationships would normally require Ego Death, this is a Blessed Inconvenience.

We still have the Soul Challenge (Uranus T-Square) in both the Chiron Station and the Orcus-Karma charts. On one end of its base we have The Most Important Thing (Saturn), and on the other we have Trust (asteroid Eurydike). The question is whether we Trust the Soul enough to Allow the Ego to follow the Soul’s Directions. Chiron is about Discouragement or Despair, and Miracles. From a place of Despair, it’s not Physically or Spiritually Possible to Manifest What We Want and Need. If we suddenly do start to Create it, it’s a Miracle, because something Impossible is now Manifesting. Discouragement is less Final than Despair, but it leans the same way. How do we Exit a place of Despair or Discouragement? One way is to Empathize with our Despair or Discouragement. That can be as simple as Poor-Sweethearting ourself, and then Changing the Subject.

Borderline

July 14, 2021

Back in the day, Susan Osborn had a song about Moonbathing – one of her many wonderful songs that were lost to us when her publisher stashed her catalog in their vault. You might remember her from Paul Winter’s Missa Gaia

“I will go Moonbathing again, and Feel my Edges,”

If you’ve seen the last several posts, you know that this month, July 2021, is a Heavy Portal that Asks us to Leave Behind everything that diminishes our Self-Love before we Cross the Threshold. We’ve been through a Direct Challenge to the Unconditionality of our Self-Love, and a Rebirth into it. Now we come to a very complicated section of it, a two-week Gauntlet where the other segments rush upon us in quick succession. We’re Vulnerable here to Discouragement,1 Guilt,2 and Overwhelm,3 and We come Face to Face with our Fate,4 all while the Veils are Super Thin and we’re Adjusting our Edges from 3D to 5D,5 our Relationships are being Rebooted,6 and our Emotions are all over the Map.7

  • 1 Despair and Miracles are Exaggerated (Chiron Stationary 15 July 9:40 am PDT, in 13 Aries). Let Go of Discouragement by saying to yourself, “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Discouraged, aren’t you” – Empathy Heals, and Self-Empathy works. The you have to Change the Subject or your Mind will recreate your Discouragement before you can Allow the Miracles.
  • 2 Guilt is Prominent (Asteroid Nemesis Stationary 18 July 1:06 pm PDT, in 29 Scorpio).
  • 3 What’s Been Denied is Being Revealed (Dwarf Planet Eris Stationary 20 July 2:08 am PDT, in 25 Aries).
  • 4 Fate and Choice are Lit Up (Asteroid Moira Stationary 22 July 9:12 pm PDT, in 29 Pisces). We only have to Live our Fate or Karma until we bring it into Consciousness. Once it’s Conscious, we have Choice, though we may have to first Change our Habit of Believing that we Don’t have Choice.
  • 5 Boundaries are Emphasized (Asteroid Pallas Stationary 14 July 12:40 am PDT, in 28 Pisces).
  • 6 A New 2½-year Relationship Cycle Begins (Mars Initiates Venus 13 July 6:32 am PDT in 20 Leo).
  • 7 We may not Realize how Emotional we are, because we’ll Believe we have good Reason to be Feeling the way we do, forgetting that Reason and Emotion Live on different Planets, and we only Ask the Intellect to Explain our Feelings because Intense Emotion interferes with the Intuition that would normally Flesh Out our Emotions (Moon Out of Bounds from 6:10 pm PDT 20 July in 17 Sagittarius till 10:39 pm PDT 23 July in 4 Aquarius; max OOB [Moon Stationary] 8:10 am PDT 22 July in 25:39 S Declination and 10:05 Capricorn).

Apart from the questions about the Edge of “Space,” even the Veil between this World and the Others is diaphanous. Those people we keep seeing out of the corner of our eye, and the ones we keep bumping into even though they aren’t actually there, are our Ancestors and our Soul Tribe and various Fae that we’ve forgotten that we Invited. And perhaps Others who are Invading our Space Psychically, that we don’t usually “See.”

A long-time reader writes, “I have been feeling a bit conflicted about neighbors coming through the gate into the back yard and even opening doors into the house where I am sometimes wrapped in a towel while getting a second cup of coffee. Part of me feels like I’m being too self-absorbed in protecting my sacred space and part of me wants to tell the neighbors to be more respectful. Especially the ones who are not friends.”

My Response: “Thanks for the heads-up – we have a neighbor (just one thank Goodness) with loosey-goosey Boundaries too, though not nearly that bad.  I’d start by locking my door.  Nobody’s got the right to enter another’s house unless it’s an emergency, and then only after knocking a lot.  It’s a very Invasive Action.  And if they aren’t friends?  I’d be considering calling in the Police!  What are they doing when you aren’t home?

“Mirrors might help (Imagine holding an invisible wardrobe Mirror between you, facing them, to reflect their Invasive Energy back at them). We have one ex-for-good-reason-friend that, when Mirrored, would just ‘come around to the back.’  Me own Mum, Bless her Innocent Heart, did that sometimes.  For folks like that we need 360-Degree Mirrors, and sometimes even a Dome of Mirrors overhead.  I’ve never Experienced the need for a full Sphere, but I suppose it’s possible, if they have Dwarf (underground-Fairy, not small-person) Blood in their lineage.

“The beauty of the Mirrors is that, once we practice with them enough, the Practice actually fills the Holes in our Aura that were crafted by our Programmers so they could insert their Psychic hand and pull our puppet-strings.  As my First Teacher used to say, ‘No one can Invade you if your Aura is filled with Your Own Energy.’  Feeling Guilt or even Shame (the Nemesis Station ain’t far behind) is common when we do this – part of our Programming, as our Programmers used Guilt and Shame to carve the Holes and keep them open.  That makes our Perseverance more difficult but more Important, if we want to Heal up the Holes that Invasive and Abusive folks Intuitively ‘See,’ and are Attracted to like Moths to the Flame.

“Of course it’s Karmic. Our Programmers, and even our later-day Invaders and Abusers, are just Unconsciously Helping us Clean Up our Karma, so No Blame. The Mirrors are a Powerful tool. They often work better than Direct Communication, because folks with porous Boundaries are usually Unconscious of it, it’s just the way they were raised, and they wouldn’t understand what you’re talking about. Or, they’re Grifters, and they’d Deny everything and work your Guilt. Ultimately, the only Perfect Protection is Vulnerability, but at this stage of the Shift to 5D, when the Patriarchy and the “SJs” are Flaming Out their own Abuse Karma so flagrantly, it’s Risky. When we’re dealing with the Ego, we don’t want to Stretch too far at once, lest we get burned and have to backtrack, which would Add to our Karmic Load. Which is more Unconditionally Self-Loving, Confronting an Unconscious Abuser, or just locking the door?

“We can and should use PIAVAs, maybe Thetas, to Define the sort of Living Conditions we Want for ourself, and put that message out to the Universe as a Request or Command to the Creator of All Things. It’s ‘Blaming the Victim,” but everything in our Young Lives has been Invited by some part of Ourself, and if anything is Invited by a part we haven’t met and befriended yet, then it’s an Invitation to get to work getting to know them, not get to work trying to upgrade the neighbors’ finesse with Boundaries. Befriending our Self-Sabotaging Unconscious parts is Life-Changing. Those are the Important Boundaries.”

We can Expect the Edges of our Relationships to be Changing, as we move into the new Ritual to the Sun Relationship Paradigm. May The Force Help you Negotiate Win-Win with any Relationships Worth Keeping. In 5D we’ll be Living Yintegrity. In Yangtegrity, we Do what we said we were going to Do, when we said we would Do it. In Yintegrity, we Do what we Dang Well Feel like Doing, Moment to Moment. To Live in Yintegrity as much as possible in a Yangtegrity World, we have to Minimize our Commitments, Renegotiate when we need to, and Make Amends when Renegotiation isn’t possible and the Relationship Is Worth Keeping.

The Most Fundamental Relationship we all have, is the one between our Inner Female and our Inner Male. As our External Relationships Change, we want to be Mindful about that. For instance, do your Girlfriend and your Inner Female sometimes get Confused in your Mind? Or in theirs? Same with your Boyfriend and your Inner Male. The Pallas and Moira Stations aren’t that far from Neptune, Master of Confusion. But Neptune represents Confusion only in the Material Realm. In the Spiritual Realm it fills in for Clarity. If any of our Relationships are Confusing to us, we only need to move to the Spiritual Realm. How to do that? We Ask ourself, “What if we Did Know?”

Rebirth into Self-Love II

July 12, 2021

Brenda Hoffman’s Channel today concurs…

https://lifetapestrycreations.wordpress.com/2021/07/12/new-you-development-is-subtle-and-gentle/

“You have a need to be perfect, to be immediately clear of all impediments to new you.

“Becoming new you is a process, not an overnight activity.

“You will clear or shift when you need to do so. Even though a toddler wants to be as skilled as their older sibling, such is impossible until they develop the necessary skills. Or, it may never be possible because the toddler and their older sibling are different entities.

“Many of your new skills need to be developed further before they can be actualized.

“Do you remember having interests as a child that evolved into adult 3D interests or your career? So it is now. Each interest might seem minimal until it is attached to a new skill set or idea.

“Allow yourself to flow into your new you without fear, shoulds, or have tos.

“Even though you might revert to 3D fears or compulsions because that is your former comfort zone, you have completed the difficult work of exiting your 3D being. Just as many 3D infants, toddlers, and young children reverted to their Universal knowledge through invisible friends and other indicators until they became so enmeshed in 3D life they forgot their Universal accesses.

“The reverse is now happening to you. You are rapidly forgetting or ignoring your 3D knowingness. As you do so, some pieces might come to the surface, just as the wind might create choppy lake waves.

“If choppy waves arrive for you, address them as you wish, knowing your waves will soon be light and airy again.

“You no longer require an earth life to explore a specific fear as you did in 3D. This is a new world. And in this new world, you address, function, react to or create as you wish. Do you wish to address the choppy waves? Do so. Do you wish to wait until the waves recede? Do so. Do you wish to ignore the choppy waves and continue moving forward? Do so.

“This is not your parents’ world. You are a new being in a new world. Exploring this and creating that – when you wish. Even though you are an infant new being learning new skills, this is not months or years-long process.

“You are a wondrous being in a new world. Skills will become apparent when you are ready to use them, just as answers will become apparent when you are ready to access them.

“As you flit from one interest to another, you will automatically achieve the skills you want when you need them.

“Universal skills are about ease and grace. Three-D skills are based on fear and punishment.

“Likely, you repeated a 3D fear in 3D life after life to ensure you were no longer tied to that fear. Think of yourself now as a honey bee flitting from interest to interest, gathering sweet honey here and there.

“Many of you claim that you remain in your cocoon. We, of the Universes, beg to differ.

“Even though it appears as if nothing much has changed in your life, you have not been in a cocoon for several weeks. Think back to those pieces that indicated something was changing. Perhaps a new memory, a fogginess of being, interacting with new people or animals, or finding little need to do what you once found productive.

“Thousands of little pieces that indicate you are no longer in a cocoon state. What you have not acknowledged is you are in the midst of a new norm, despite a disinterest in leaving your home, community, or any indicator you have created to believe you remain in a cocoon.

“You are in a new place, expanding your horizons. Perhaps not as you once did in 3D, but most certainly as a new being.

“Even though an infant smiling or picking up a rattle is considered growth, you admonish yourself despite your amazing growth the past few weeks. Some of you are merely creating or utilizing less visible skills. 

“You still measure your growth in 3D terms – loud and brash. New you is subtle and gentle. So it is new you has arrived in ways best for your peace and contentment.

“Will your current life change? Most decidedly so. Just as a 3D newborn becomes a toddler, teen, and adult. 

“The difference is, your new you expansion is soft and gentle, just as is true for Universal life. So be it.”

Rebirth into Self-Love

July 11, 2021

Rebirth is Front and Center until at least 11 July 2021 (dwarf planet Haumea (Rebirth or Destruction) Stationary 11 July 3:54 am PDT, in 27 Libra). In particular, because of the recent and ongoing Prominence of Self-Love 1, our interpretation is that we’re being Reborn into Greater Self-Love. Haumea is Pele’s daughter – think Hot Molten Stone forming new Land, eventually. In the interim it Burns away and Buries everything that was already there. That’s Wonderful when what’s Burned and Buried is Dysfunctional Karma. It may feel a bit Less Than Wonderful when we haven’t yet Realized that the Karma was dysfunctional, such as when we’re Ego-Attached to our Victimhood around it.

  1. Asteroid Sappho (Self-Love or Self-Judgment) Stationary 8 July 3:45 pm PDT, in 28 Aquarius, closely Trine (Dumb-Luck Blessings) to the Haumea Station. See the earlier posts Love Is the Answer and Love Is the Answer 2, and the forthcoming post Love Is the Answer 3.

Take an Inventory of your Friends and Confidants. Does your Relationship with any of them depend on your Habit of sharing Victim Stories? Also Strong during July is the asteroid we interpret as Boundaries (Pallas Stationary 14 July, in 28 Pisces). When we Change Boundaries with Friends, if they don’t Adjust, we can Lose the Friendship. Once you Realize that you don’t have to continue to be Victimized by your “Bad” Karma, you have the Power to Change it.

Sometimes our Investment in our old Patterns is too great for us to be Willing to Change them. Karma comprises Habits we carry with us from one Lifetime to the next. Our Planet is in the process of Clearing Away Its “Bad” Karma, so we may end up having to move to another Planet if we aren’t Willing to Shift our own Energies. I’m sure you know people who have already made that Choice.

All of July’s many Stations except the 15 July Exaggeration of Despair and Miracles (Station of Chiron) share the same chart, the major feature of which is a “Grand Unx,” which is twelve planets more or less equally spaced around the Zodiac, and which means Lots of Easy Pattern-Breaking, which we can Leverage into Swapping our Self-Sabotaging Patterns for Habits that Serve our Life Goals

The Glory of a Grand Unx is that it Gifts us with twelve different Arenas wherein Pattern-Change is facilitated.

For example, the asteroid we associate with Guilt (Nemesis Stationary 18 July, in 29 Scorpio) makes a Waxing Unx Angle (one Sign ahead) to the Haumea Station. This five-year Nemesis-Haumea Cycle began in mid-October 2020 at 28 Libra, “A person becoming Aware of Spiritual Forces surrounding and assisting them.” The Waxing Unx is our second Opportunity to Let Go Of any remaining Investments and Attachments we’ve made to the previous Cycle (8 December 2015 in 24 Libra, “A Butterfly with a third wing on its left side“). So we might be waiting for another Metamorphosis that may or may not work (can a Flutterby really Fly with three Wings, even if the third one is on the Left?), while the New Cycle Advises that We Just Channel It Directly. If we’re stopped because we don’t know how to do that, we can Ask ourself, What If I Did Know? and then Change the Subect.

The asteroid we associate with Growth in Consciousness (Vesta, in 26 Virgo) makes a Waning Unx (one Sign behind) to the Haumea Station. The 3½-year Vesta-Haumea Cycle is winding down. It began in early November 2017 in 25 Libra (“The sight of an Autumn leaf brings to a Pilgrim the sudden Revelation of the Mystery of Life and Death“), and will expire into their Next Cycle in mid-September 2021 in 28 Libra (“A person becoming Aware of Spiritual Forces surrounding and assisting them“). Hmmm, there seems to be a Pattern developing here. The suggestion is that, when we Notice that we’re straying from Self-Love, we should Ask for Assistance from our disincarnate Guides.

There are three other Benchwarmer asteroids – Minerva, Pandora, and Narcissus – Conjoining Vesta in this chart, which can instruct us about our Growth in Consciousness.

  • Asteroid Minerva is the Roman Incarnation of Pallas Athena, Goddess of Boundaries. Pallas is already in the mix, as She is Exaggerated (Stationary) until at least 14 July. Minerva Guards our Boundaries, and Acts to prevent their Violation.
  • Asteroid Pandora is the Greek equivalent of Eve in the Hebrew Bible, the First Woman and the Bane of Huperkind, a Political figure intended to help downgrade the Matriarchy and upgrade the Patriarchy. She’s most famous for her “Box,” a 16th-Century pre-Freudian slip. Unlike Eve, Pandora leaves Hope in her wake.
  • The role of asteroid Narcissus in our Embrace of Self-Love should be Obvious, yet Narcissus has been burdened with baggage about Pathology. The astrological Perspective is that the Personal gradually evolves into Leo, then breaks down in Virgo (Ego Death) before meeting Other in Libra. We don’t just meet Other Hupers in Libra, we meet the Unconscious, the Not-I, the quintessential Other.

Before we can meet Other, we have to meet Ourself. Narcissus is the original Mirror. Greek Tragedy emphasizes the Untoward, Inviting us to Invent Alternatives. In the illustration below, Mentality-Obsessed TechnoMan tries in Vain to Find himself on the Outside rather than on the Inside, to Ego-Identify with his ability to Manipulate External “Reality,” while his Inner Female tries in Vain to get his Attention.

Every pair of adjacent Unx Angles forms a base for a Finger of the Goddess or Yod (two planets two Signs apart, with a third planet at their Far Midpoint). A Finger of the Goddess points to the third planet and says Clearly, Pay Attention to this! Here dwarf planet Eris (Revelation of What’s Been Denied), which also joins the July Party of Self-Loving Stations, on 20 July.

Sappho makes a Waxing Trine (four Signs ahead) to Haumea. At the Waxing Trine, the Cycle is at the Top of It Game. The Trine signifies Dumb-Luck Grace, where everything seems to fall into place Effortlessly. It’s past the Waxing Square (three Signs ahead) where it reaches the Mainstream, but it has yet to encounter the Waxing Quincunx (five Signs) where it begins to Wonder how far it can go. The current three-year Sappho-Haumea Cycle began in September 2020, in 27 Libra, “An airplane sails, high in the clear air.” The Sky’s the Limit for Birthing ever more Self-Love into our Lives.

Ending Codependence?

July 9, 2021

The chart of the 9 July 2021 New Moon (6:16 pm PDT, in 19 Cancer) is another of those rare “simple” – or Intensely Focused charts…

The 8 July Station of asteroid Sappho (Self-Love), and the several other July Stations that occur in the same Degree Zone, depict a very Strong Rebirth (dwarf planet Haumea), as we upgrade our Self-Love by several to many notches. The 9 July New Moon confirms it, as the New Moon Challenges (Squares) asteroid Klotho (New Beginnings), named for the Greek Goddess who was in charge of “cutting the Cloth” on which a whole new batch of Karmic Tapestry will be woven. Karma, recall, can be “Good” or “Bad,” relative to our Perspective, so a whole new batch of it can be glorious, especially when it involves a big Upgrade in our Self-Love.

In fact, Karma is Neutral. It’s all just Experience, and Experience is what we came here for. If the Habit Patterns we bring with us into the Lifetime are agreeable to the Ego, we consider it “Good” Karma. If it Challenges the Ego and our Consciousness to Grow, then we consider it to be “Bad” Karma. It’s the Ego that decides whether Karma is “Good” or “Bad” (or even “Earned” or “Curricular”), depending on what the Ego is ready to tackle.

In this particular case, it’s our Unhealed Codependence (dwarf planet Hylonome) that can make the next few weeks (the usual timescale for the influence of a New Moon) feel like “Bad” Karma (Klotho T-Squared by the Opposition from Hylonome to the New Moon). And conversely, it’s our Self-Sovereignty (Hylonome) that will make the Karma seem Helpful.

In such a spacious chart, every little thing takes on huge proportions. The only Bridge across the T-Square (or “shortcut across the Challenge”) is a Quincunx Bridge (the green lines). A Quincunx connects planets that are five Signs apart, and it’s meaning is Curiosity. Not the kind of Curiosity that take us to the encyclopedia or our local Sage, but the kind that drops our jaw and puts us in Awe. We could even say Awesome Curiosity. Curiosity, like Confusion, is an Authentic Emotion. Rather than seeking Cause or Blame, Authentic Emotions need to just be Felt and Experienced. Curiosity and Confusion are Powerful Emotions because they lead us beyond the Ego into uncharted territory.

Which is precisely why we want to Explain them, so we don’t get lost in the Wilderness, which would be Scary. But the Wilderness is the only place where we can Expand our Consciousness and Grow as a Huper. So if we Aspire to Enlightenment or 5D, we need to retrain any tendency we have to want to Explain everything. It Is What It Is, and it Asks to be Appreciated for being exactly that, no more and no less. Feel it in your Body and then Let It Go. Since undefined Curiosity and Confusion Frighten the Ego, we can retrain ourself using the same techniques we use for Fear – Fear (or Confusion/Curiosity) plus Breathing equals Excitement, Fear plus Grounding equals Clarity, Fear plus Kegels equals Power. And especially, Changing the Subject when the Mind wants to intercede, squeezing your New Experience into your old Birdcage, and Canceling your Opportunity for Growth.

We’re thinking, this is only a New Moon, it only lasts a couple of weeks, it’s not such a Big Deal, but in the context of the Sappho Station’s Suzerainty over the month of July, it is obviously an adjunct of our Self-Love Adventures – Self-Love and Codependence can be contentious companions.

And, we need to look at it this way… The 13 July Conjunction of Venus and Mars, which begins a New 2½-year Cycle in the all-important Relationship between our Inner Male and our Inner Female, in the process Reconfiguring all of our external Relationships with other people. When all is Right with the World, our Inner Female holds our Values, and instructs our Inner (and Outer) Male on how to Work toward Building a Life based on them. When we aren’t in touch with our Inner Female, we constantly shoot ourselves in the feet, because we don’t know our own Values. When we aren’t in touch with our Inner Male, we don’t get much done. Fulfillment is an estranged Emotion in both situations.

Well, if we take this 9 July New Moon chart, and erase the Moon, we have exactly the chart for the 13 July Initiation of the New 2½-year Venus-Mars Cycle. So we’re stuck with this chart for a lot longer than two weeks, and every other person we meet will be reminding us of this, and every misalignment between our Values and our Actions will be rubbing our face in this chart. Bottom Line, every Endeavor we attempt to Begin (Klotho) will be screwed up by our Codependence (Hylonome), and every Endeavor will end up being a Renegotiation of our Self-Sovereignty. If you’ve ever been in Relationship with someone who really doesn’t understand Who You Are, or with someone whom you don’t really Understand, and/or a Relationship overflowing with Brutal Arguments, you well know what I’m talking about.

To embellish this, there are two other Significant Elements in these two charts…

First, Venus-Mars is joined by asteroid Atropos (Karma that Expires on its own). So your Relationships will be Entirely New, and none of your old Relationship Habits will work. You won’t know that until you try to exercise them and they fail utterly. When you try to Show Off, you’ll end up with a lot of Egg on your face – which is actually Great for the Ego, because it’ll be reminded frequently of its proper role as your Survival Manager, rather than the role it’s used to playing as your Marketing VP. Get used to it.

And second, this Initiation is in Leo. Leo is the Culmination of the Individual. This means that the only way you’ll get any Relationship to function well during this Cycle, is to Fully and Completely Respect one another’s Self-Sovereignty. If you’re a Judgmental-type person, and especially if you Believe you know the difference between Right and Wrong for others, your Relationships will head straight for the Toilet. Here’s a two-minute tutorial in what will work (called “SP” in the quote) and what won’t (“SJ”), from David Keirsey’s Please Understand Me II (pp.18-19)…

  • “SPs probe around their immediate surroundings in order to detect and exploit any favorable options that come within reach. Having the freedom to act on the spur of the moment, whenever or wherever an opportunity arises, is very important to SPs. No chance is to be blown, no opening missed, no angle overlooked – whoever or whatever might turn out to be exciting, pleasurable, or useful is checked out for advantage.”
  • “SJs, like SPs, observe their close surrounding with a keen eye, but for an entirely different reason, namely that of scheduling their own and others’ activities so that needs are met and conduct is kept within bounds. Thus for SJs, everything should be in its proper place, everybody should be doing what they’re supposed to, everybody should be getting their just desserts, every action should be closely supervised, all products thoroughly inspected, all legitimate needs promptly met, all approved ventures carefully insured.”

Of course, exceptions are many. A Guilt-laden or Shame-laden “SP” who hasn’t Healed their Codependence will be a perfect match for an SJ. Two “SJs” can get along great if their Values mostly overlap – or if they follow the same external Authority and can agree on most interpretations. I don’t think it’s Coincidence that it’s easy to profile the Patriarchy and certain Political party adherents into the “SJ” category. We might expect “SJs” to display Dysfunction or cluster into tight cults over the next 2½ years.

In addition to the chart of the Initiation of a New Cycle, the other major way to guess what the Cycle might be about, is the “Sabian Symbol” (a Channeled reading for each of the 360 Degrees of the Zodiac) of the Degree of the Initiation. The Sabian Symbol for 20 Leo is “Zuni Indians perform a ritual to the Sun: A return to the glorification of natural energies.” Since Ritual (the Second Harmonic) is the Realm of the SJs, this will Create an interesting Dynamic, as the SPs and the SJs need one another.

Love Is the Answer 2

July 6, 2021

Well, not only are we entering a Portal that can take us a long way toward Liberation from our Limitations (8 July 2021 Station of Sappho – see previous post), but it comes with the ultimate gift-wrap – a “Grand Unx”! Sounds weird I know, but an “Unx” is one twelfth of something, so an Unx is the Angle between two planets one Sign apart. And a Grand Unx

…is twelve planets one Sign apart! It’s very Powerful just to sit and lose yourself in the Merkaba-like Mandala! Since the Twelfth Harmonic is about Pattern-Breaking, a Grand Unx can make it Easier for us to shed our Limitations. We had to add two planets that aren’t usually on our starting team, but we’ve seen them both before…

  • Thereus is the Bear-Wrestler that other astrofolks have impugned, but our research showed him to be a Teacher.
  • Psyche, the impossibly cute mortal Lass that seduced Cupid with her Beauty when his mother Venus sent him to eliminate the Competition. She was eventually granted immortality so she and Cupid could marry, and became the Goddess of the Soul, or that which Animates us.

We’ll talk more about this lovely Kaleidoscope. Print it out and put it up on your wall, where you can stumble across it every few hours or minutes.

Love Is the Answer

July 5, 2021

A reader and friend and Healer always signs their emails with “Love is the answer whatever the question,” and that’ll pretty much be the theme for July, and if we make it through July Alive, for the rest of our Lives.

We interpret asteroid Sappho as Self-Love and its obverse, Self-Judgment. Self-Judgment happens when our Self-Love is Lit Up but we’re Rejecting it. If we can Learn to Be Loving with our Self-Judgment and with ourself when we’re in Self-Judgment, and make it an automatic Habit, we’ll Expand our progress Exponentially toward Enlightenment, Ascension, 5D, Harmony and Understanding, Sympathy and Trust Abounding, World Peace, Apple Pie, and All Things Wonderful. We regard this as the Single Most Important Thing that we can do toward that end. We even regard it as the Most Important Thing we can do for our Health and Vitality.

Long-time readers know that we focus in this blog on the Stations of the planets. As we all go ’round the Sun, as we appear to do, each planet travels at a different speed, and therefore sometimes pass one another. If you’ve ever noticed – as a passenger, not as a driver – that when you pass another car on the freeway and continue to go faster than it is, the other car appears to be going backwards (if you’re the driver, everyone wants you to keep your eyes on the road ahead!). The same happens when we pass another planet, or it passes us. When a planet appears to be going backwards, astrologers say that the planet is “Retrograde.”

Many astrologers pay attention to Retrograde motion, and to the subtle differences it makes in how the planet influences the Affairs of Hupers and other Earthly Entities. We pretty much Ignore that, as I’ve found in my many decades of following astrology that, except in special cases, it’s not that big a deal to me. Or it’s too subtle for me, which is fine with me, since I like to keep my eye on the Big Picture. On the other hand, what we Do pay Attention to in this blog, are the Transitions that planets make between Direct and Retrograde motion, and back again. We and other astrologers refer to this Transition as a Station, because in the process the planet becomes Stationary in the Sky.

When we speak in English instead of astrologuese, we often refer to a Station as an Exaggeration of the planet’s Energy. So we might say that there’s an “Exaggeration of Self-Love or Self-Judgment (asteroid Sappho Stationary),” or when we slip into astrologuese, “Station of Sappho (Exaggeration of Self-Love or Self-Judgment),” or the like. We pay Attention to planetary Stations because the impact that a planet has on us Earthlings is much Stronger when the planet is Stationary. This makes it Easier to Learn about the planet and its Tricks, and it’s especially important when the Station happens to fall close to one of our natal planets, because it will Trigger whatever Karma or Unfinished Business that we have with the Energy embodied by that natal planet. If we really Learn to Be Loving with our Self-Judgment and with ourself when we’re in Self-Judgment, and make it an automatic Habit, we can Clear whatever untoward Karma we have with that Energy, quite possibly for good.

All of which is a long way of saying that the first Station of July is a Sappho Station, on 8 July 2021 (3:45 pm PDT), in 28 Aquarius. So this coming week will give us the Opportunity to Clear any Negative Karma we have around any natal planet we have within several Degrees of 28 Aquarius. To a lesser extent, we can also use it to Clear Negative Karma around natal planets we have near 28 Degrees of any of the other “Fixed” or Stabilizing Signs (Leo, Scorpio, and Taurus). All we have to do is to Be Loving with our Self-Judgments and with ourself when we’re in Self-Judgment.

We can’t just suddenly Love what we Judge, because your Deeper You will know you’re just scamming it. The first thing we can do, is Love ourself while we’re in Judgment. We can try TappingEven though I’m in Judgment, I deeply and completely Love and Accept Myself…” That should bring your Mental Body into better Alignment with your Energy Body. You want to repeat that Tapping as many times as it takes to feel solid about yourself. From there you can begin to work with What it is you Judge about them. Use all of your Critical Observer Skills, but try to Avoid your Analysis Skills. For me, “Even though I Judge Greed, I deeply and completely Love and Accept Myself…” might come next. Probably good to Change the Subject and give it a rest around this point, and check back in tomorrow or the next day. We have all month after all.

We assign the Sappho Station to highlight the whole month of July not only because Love is The Most Important Thing and Love doesn’t happen without Self-Love, but also because after Sappho there are six other planetary Stations in July, and five of them are within three Degrees of the Station of Sappho, plus seven Sign Changes, which occur two Degrees away. That’s a huge Emphasis on the Cusps between the Signs, which are about Changes.

The Impact of a Station is Strongest in the week prior to the Station, but it remains Strong in the week or so afterward as well. The Impact often Peaks when the planet Stands Still, but it can be Felt before or after, depending on interactions with other planets, and interactions with your natal planets. The other Stations…

  • Exaggerated Rebirth (dwarf planet Haumea Stationary 11 July 5:54 am PDT, in 27 Libra). To the extent we succeed in Loving our way through the Sappho Station, this Portal could take us to places we’ve only Dreamed of.
  • Exaggerated Boundaries (asteroid Pallas Stationary 14 July 12:40 am PDT, in 28 Pisces). Time to harden Boundaries with the folks who have been sharing our Pity Party about how Abused we’ve been by those we’ve been Judging, and Soften our Boundaries yet more with the Parts of ourself that have been propping up our Ego with pride about our Judgments. NOT to soften our Boundaries with those whom we’ve been Judging. We still may not Like those people, and we don’t want to be Self-Abusive about all this. We mostly want to Recover the Parts of ourself that we’ve been Rejecting, see if we can Befriend them and Negotiate a Win-Win with them, and see where that leads.

We also Reset our Relationships (Venus Conjunct Mars 13 July 6:32 am PDT, in 20 Leo) on the same day as we Reorganize our Boundaries. What a “Coincidence”! 20 Leo is “Zuni Indians perform a Ritual to the Sun: A return to the glorification of natural energies.” Hallelujah!

  • Possible Exaggerated Despair (Chiron Stationary 15 July 9:40 am PDT, in 13 Aries). Note that this isn’t close to our 28 Degree Hot Spot, but we’re talking about some potentially devastating Ego Deaths here, and Discouragement lingering in the background can hardly be helpful. Remember your Self-Empathy (“You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Horrible, aren’t you ” – then Change the Subject), as it Creates Miracles that will mesh with this Rebirth beautifully, and probably Ecstatically.
  • Exaggerated Guilt (asteroid Nemesis Stationary 18 July 1:06 pm PDT, in 29 Scorpio). We’ve been Confused by this since early April, when Nemesis went Retrograde in mid-Sagittarius (the Way Out is through Letting Go) and fell back into Scorpio (the Way Out is through Diving Deeper, till we Get to the Bottom of This) on 24 June. Nemesis has been in Scorpio (Compulsively Wallowing in our Guilt) since 26 October, and what a Healing Crisis that always is! It will move back into Sagittarius “for good” on 11 August, and what a Relief that will be! Meanwhile, be sure to be Loving with your Guilt, and with yourself while you’re in Guilt. Later we’ll Tap this out like we’re doing with Judgment.
  • Exaggerated Revelation of What’s Been Denied (dwarf planet Eris Stationary 20 July 2:08 am PDT, in 25 Aries). What a “Coincidence” that Eris would Light Up while we’re working with the Parts of ourself that we haven’t Acknowledged.
  • Exaggerated Fate, and if we’re Conscious, its obverse, Choice (asteroid Moira Stationary 22 July 9:12 pm PDT, in 29 Pisces). Another remarkable “Coincidence,” that our Fate (ie, our Karma) should be Lit Up just as we’re Clearing that very Karma. What a Gift this is. Notice that this is the same location as our earlier Pallas (Boundaries) Station. It’s a good time to recall that our Karma/Fate is a Political Fiction that disappears as soon as we Bring it into Consciousness, and do the hard work of Noticing that it’s been Screwing Up that part of our Life too! while we Patiently and Consciously Replace it with New Habits.
  • Exaggerated Growth in Consciousness (asteroid Juno Stationary, 2 August 4:23 pm PDT, 9 Sagittarius). Another remarkable “Coincidence” – Growth in Consciousness is exactly what’s needed to Revert our Negative Karma.

Plus, we have seven Sign Changes, which of course also occur close to our Open Wound at 28 Degrees, and three of which are moving into the Sign of Ego Death (Virgo)…

  • Aletheia (Truth of the Heart) enters Taurus (Walking in Beauty) 9 July 6:22 am PDT.
  • Mercury (Mental Gymnastics) enters Cancer (Nurturing) 11 July 1:35 pm PDT.
  • Ixion (our Unique Genius) backs into Sagittarius (Letting Go of our Inhibitions) 16 July 2:48 am PDT.
  • Venus (our Values) enters Virgo (Ego Death) 22 July 5:36 pm PDT.
  • Mercury (Communication, Anal-ysis) enters Leo (Self-Appreciation) 27 July 6:11 pm PDT.
  • Mars (Action) enters Virgo (Ego Death) 29 July 1:00 pm PDT.
  • Atropos (Karma Reaching Its Natural Expiry Date) enters Virgo (Ego Death) 1 August 4:07 pm PDT.

And, did we mention that the 8 July Sappho Station, the 9 July New Moon, the 22 July Moira Station, and the 23 July Full Moon all occur while the Moon (Instincts, Manifestation) is Out of Bounds (Strong).
