Heating Up II

June 24, 2018

In the 21 June Solstice chart, a Critical Issue is Trusting our Ability to Manifest.  Rather than lamenting that Politicians or Climate Change or Elimination of Environmental Protection or Immigration or Trade Wars will Destroy our World or our Ability to Survive, Focus your Attention on What You Want to Experience instead.  That’s your greatest Power for positive Change, and your Vibrations are needed by the Collective (the Solstice Sun is one corner of the base of a T-Square focused on Makemake-Eurydike, with Pholus-Quaoar on the other corner of the base).

Focus your Attention on what is Life-Affirming.  Replace your Judgments of Others with Honest Self-Inventory of the roots of your Karma – we Judge in Others what we can’t Tolerate in ourself.  Allow – and PIAVA – Transcendence into your Life.  (Varuna, asteroid Karma, and Klotho-BZ509 are at Angles of Grace and Curiosity to the focus of the T-Square; see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/05/28/bz509-transcendence/ for an introduction to BZ509.)

Heating Up I

June 24, 2018

There’s a lot more to write about than there will be time to write, and I can tell that folks are eager for Perspective, so I’ll be cryptic to try to cover the Big Points, then see how much time we have to fill in details as we go…

The 27 June Full Moon tells us that The Most Important Thing is that we Realize how we’ve Merged with another Person (or People), and PIAVA to Find Our Own Center Again (The Full Moon Conjoins Saturn and Hylonome).  We need to Trust that it is possible to Manifest the End of our Despair over the Pain caused by trying to Live through someone else (The Full Moon Squares the Opposition from Chiron to Makemake-Eurydike-Atropos). 

This is not something we “Figure Out.”  We have to Intuit or Channel it, because the Merging, the Trust, the Pain, and the Despair are laced together in a complex knot of Paradoxes (The Full Moon Grand Cross is embedded with two Yin Gates) around barely identifiable Anger from Past Lives (one Yin Gate is centered on Mars Conjunct the South Node), and Breaking the Ancient Oath or Oaths that have Committed us to Abuse (the other Yin Gate is centered on Orcus-Veritas Opposite Nessus-OR10).

We are stuck in a Timeline that we Want very much to End soon, but we’ve been unable to find the exit.  The Insights are elusive, but there may be some variation on a White Dove leading you down a hidden Sacred Pathway to Pray to the Sun (Lachesis is the focus of a Mjölnir from the Hylonome-Atropos T-Square; the Vacancies that would complete the other three T-Squares are at 20 Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius).

Today’s Channeling from Daniel Scranton…

http://danielscranton.com/your-world-galactic-view-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

“We have a wide array of experiences in our collective past, and these experiences have informed us as to what we would think would benefit the human collective.  When we were physical beings, we traveled throughout thegalaxy, and at times outside of the galaxy, in search of new philosophies, new ways of looking at existence.  We have not stopped looking just because we no longer inhabit physical bodies, but when we were physical, we had experiences similar to what you are experiencing.

“But of course, ours were different because we have been on a different path.  Now, each of you draws from your own experiences in developing your philosophies, your approaches to life there on planet Earth, and most humans tend to cling to those philosophies.  We are talking about something here that is bigger than a belief.  We are talking about a world view or a galactic view, something that you put a tremendous amount of time, thought, and energy into.

“And it would stand to reason that if you had more experiences, or different experiences, you would develop a different worldview.  But what if you could only create experiences for yourself that fit in that worldview?  What if you were only allowing yourselves to experience that which you or someone else had experienced previously?  How could you remedy that?

“Well, the first thing to recognize is that we are all one, and the next thing that you want to take note of is that if we experience something, then so do you.  And that is true because we are all one.  Therefore, we encourage you to stretch yourselves out beyond your normal scope of what you consider to be ‘real.’  Don’t just think in terms of what you or someone else has been able to experience there on planet Earth.

“Expand out to include all beings in the galaxy, all beings in all dimensions, or even all beings in existence, and recognize that you can widen that scope.  You can allow in more experiences than you can imagine, and it is as easy as letting go of the basis for that worldview.  Anything you can imagine and so much more. That is what is available to you in this now moment.”

Uranus Initiated Sappho June 7 at 5pm PDT in 2 Taurus, “An electrical storm.”  We just had a Volcano, now more Lightning and Thunder.  The four-year-plus Sappho-Uranus Cycle is about the Soul’s Urge for us to Love Ourself.  Think we’ll be struck by Lightning if we Criticize ourself?  Probably not literally, but we might find the World Mirroring our Critiques back to us more Vividly than usual, as the Ego has more difficulty keeping us in the Dark about our justifications for them.

Jupiter Initiated Hopi November 16 of last year at 3pm PST, starting a new ten-year Cycle in 8 Scorpio, “A calm lake bathed in moonlight.”  The Hopi-Jupiter Cycle would be about reducing our Judgments of Other Entities.  A calm Lake reflects Moonlight, and Moonlight reflects Authenticity. 

As kids we used to return a taunt with “It takes one to know one,” implying that whatever they were accusing us of must apply to them as well.  But what if, next time someone Projected their Shadow on you, you replied, “It takes one to know one, so I must be one.”  Then you could Ask yourself, “I Wonder what this has to Teach me,” and Change the Subject.  You don’t want an Answer, you want to Inspire Curiosity.

The three prominent Conjunctions in today’s Neptune Station chart…

Nemesis-Lachesis – Altering Ego Death Timelines.  If we’re Conscious, we can do this.  If we operate primarily from the Unconscious (as all but a very few of us do), then our Ego Deaths arrive on their own Karmic Timelines.  Of course, we can still Recognize their imminent arrival and Respond to them Constructively (mostly by Enjoying the Feeling of Confusion or Anticipation that we get by focusing our Attention on the Unknown beyond the Ego Death, while Avoiding Expectations).

And if we are Conscious, to the extent that we’re Conscious around the Content-Field of our Ego Death (ie, it could be triggered by, say, Relationship, Scarcity, etc etc), Altering the Timelines may not be Easy.  Since it’s an Ego Transition, the mind (whose Concept-Set and Limiting Beliefs anchor the Ego) may not be much help.  Since we’re Dancing with the Unconscious (otherwise we’d just Experience it as a Shift rather than an Ego Death), PIAVAs are your tool of Choice.

Basically, the more you…

  • Have “Owned” your issues
  • Regard them as Education You have (on one level or several) Chosen when they Act Out, rather than Torture that Victimizes your Innocence
  • Are in the Habit of Actively Responding to their recurrence rather than Reacting to them
  • Have replaced Frustration and Analysis with Curiosity

…the Easier it will be for you to Alter the Timelines.  Consider the Issue or Issues that arose for you over the last week.  How do you stand relative to these criteria?

Of course our first Choice for Altering the Timelines of our Issues will be to Accelerate the Arrival of What We’ve Always Wanted and Pined for All Our Life.  That’s called Attachment, and actually Discourages such Arrivals – you’re more likely to Alter your Timeline by slowing it down.  It’s Neutrality that will Accelerate your Desires.  I know, that’s Crazy-Making till we get there, but so be it.  Till we do get there, Desire is a cousin to Addiction. 

Go back the the list above.  Or PIAVA.  This would be an excellent place for our Theta-Tapping Strategy.  Desire is Good, yes?  But it can start to look like Expectation, which can cause us to jump at what looks like What We Want before we vet it thoroughly.  If you’re good at saying “Oops” and “No,” you can dip your toe in a lot of different waters, then back out.  That might be what you need to Learn.  But the Theta-Tapping Process…

Start with either.  Suppose that What You’ve Always Wanted is a Consistent Income Stream that’s Ample Enough to Share Generously.  Theta that (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava/theta/)

“God/Goddess, Creator of All That Is, I Command that a Consistent and Joyful Income Stream that’s Ample Enough to Share Generously Be Manifested for me.  It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done.  Thank you, God/Goddess… (Deep Breath or two)… Show Me.”

Usually, if you have Conflicting Goals or Beliefs, you’ll start to feel a bit “off” long before you get to Show me, so you can stop and Tap anytime (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzVd6Ww0as4)…

“Even though I’ve never enjoyed a Consistent and Joyful Income Stream that’s Big Enough to Share Generously, I Deeply and Completely Love and Accept myself…” etc.

You could always say “Enough Money” as a shortcut, but since that’s an Oxymoron, according to a friend at least, you want to spell it out more carefully at first, till God/Goddess and your Meridians get the full idea of What You Really Want before you get glib.

Tap till you feel more Clear and Neutral about it, then go back and redo your Theta, stirring occasionally.  Iterate as necessary.

Lachesis will Initiate Nemesis on 3 July at 11pm PDT in 21 Taurus, “A finger pointing to a line in an open book.”  Interesting theme.  It’s a 28-year Cycle, so it’s not trivial.  My first thought is that the Open Book is our Authenticity, and the finger pointing to a line could be for now What We Really Want.  That’ll Change often in 28 years of course, as it Evolves.  With a 28-year Cycle we’re likely to spend the first seven years Clearing out old detritus that blocks our access to the Treasure.

But, even though the Essence of any Cycle goes underground after the Initiation, it’s very much Live at the Initiation, ie, Now.  Especially with Makemake and Neptune Stationary and your Consciousness Wide Open to What’s Been Previously Denied.  Makemake Stationary is a Magic Wand, and Neptune Stationary means that the Door to Heaven is Open if you can find it.  So don’t waste any Energy on Doubt this week, especially with Thursday’s Solstice (at 0 Degrees of course) close enough to Makemake’s 3-Degree Station to keep it well Lit Up.

The Neptune Station (18 June 4:30 pm PDT) chart is less complicated – and less straightforward – than the others…

The first thing we have to notice is the Grand Trine and Kites (Fabulous Blessings – blue lines), because all three of our Big Three charts this extended weekend have included this feature, even though they’re in different Degrees…

  • Saturday’s Makemake Station (Manifestation) chart featured two Grand Trines, both Kites, one in Earth and one in Fire!
    • The Kite on the Fire Grand Trine focused on Makemake itself, lending Spiritual Cred to what we’re Manifesting
    • The Kite on the Earth Grand Trine focused on OR10 in Pisces, reinforcing the notion that we have to Clear our Held Emotions in order to find enough Authenticity to Manifest What We Really Want
  • Sunday’s Eris-Juno Initiation (the Coming into Consciousness of What Was Previously Denied) held a Fire Grand Trine and Double Kite (ie, Almost-Grand-Sextile), with the foci of the Kites on Rebirth Haumea and Unlimited Potential Chaos
  • Today’s Neptune Station chart’s Grand Trine is in Water, again with a Double Kite, focused on Self-Confidence Chariklo and a Conjunction which we’ll discuss more, that should Shift our approach to Ego Death

That omits Air, or Mentality, which on some levels is appropriate, as one of Western Culture’s most serious Self-Sabotage is overfocus on Mentality.  On the other hand, three of the Kites focus on planets in Air Signs.

And veteran readers will already be wondering where the Vacancy is, in today’s Neptune-Station chart Almost-Grand-Sextile. 

A Sextile occurs when two planets are two Signs apart, and it signifies Grace, but “the Native” (that’s what astrologers call the person whose natal chart we’re discussing – in this case since we’re speaking of what’s going on the Sky just now, all of us are “the Native”) has to take the first step to get the Grace flowing.  Co-Creativity, in other words.

A Grand Sextile consists of six planets equally spaced around the Zodiacal Loop, all two Signs apart; it symbolizes Great Symbiotic Grace – but again, us Natives have to Initiate the Projects that we want to Fly.  An Almost-Grand-Sextile is five of these six, leaving a “Vacancy” in the Grand-Sextile. 

As with any Vacancy, it’s up to us to supply the Missing Energy to complete the Configuration and enable the Energy to Flow.  For an Almost-Grand-Sextile, we have two assignments – supply the Initiatory Energy for each of the five Sextiles, and also supply the Missing Energy that will complete the Grand Sextile and remove impediments to Flow.

The Vacancy here is 17 Virgo, “A Volcanic Eruption” – Intense!  Not how we’re used to thinking about Neptune, but then Tsunamis are Neptunian too.  In other words, the Neptune chart is advising that we Don’t Hold Anything Back, even if (or especially if) we have to Express it more violently than we would prefer.

That’s a pretty strong hint that we should talk about the “Shift in our approach to Ego Death” that we mentioned earlier.  This is a Conjunction between asteroids Nemesis (Ego Death) and Lachesis (Conscious Manipulation of Timelines) – Conscious Manipulation of our Timelines around Ego Death in other words. We may be accelerating some, delaying others, and/or Changing the ground rules of the whole ball game.

This Opposes another Conjunction, between Jupiter (Expansion) and asteroid Hopi (Respect for All Things), suggesting that we may be removing Judgment, including Self-Judgment, from our processing of Ego Death.  That would compliment the Conjunction between Sappho (Self-Love) and Uranus (Soul) in the Makemake-Station chart.  That chart is still in effect, as we have to remember to see the weekend’s three events as one, since they’re so close in Linear Time.

So, if an Explosion Destroys Your Ego, Go with it, to see where it leads.  You’ll be Delighted, though wear your shoes and take a broom, as there may be some broken glass to cross first.

Lots left to look at, including the Nemesis-Lachesis Cycle, the Hopi-Jupiter Cycle, and the Sappho-Uranus Cycle, to see what they’re about and what sort of Changes they have in store for us.  We’ll save all that for later today.

June 17, 2018

The next thing we notice about the 17 June (9:30 pm PDT) Eris-Juno Initiation, is an additional dose of Grace…

In the form of a Fire Grand Trine (Dumb-Luck Blessings, the big blue triangle above) among the Initiation itself, Abandoned Genius Ixion, and Sustainable Authenticity Moon-Ceres.  It’s augmented by two additional corners, making five of the six corners we’d need for a Grand Sextile (Great Blessings flowing from our Actions).  The two additional corners are Rebirth Haumea, and Essential Potential Sun-Chaos, leaving the sixth corner, or Vacancy, at 26 Aquarius, “A mechanic testing a car battery with a hydrometer.”

The Vacancy is of course Energy we will have to supply Consciously in order to complete the Grand Sextile and Activate the Blessings – the Intuition, Knowledge, and Willingness to Risk and Learn needed to Troubleshoot when we encounter Difficulty.

Finally, we return to Curiosity when we look at the Square Fez…

A Square Fez is a trapezoid with Squares (90 degrees, the red lines) on the non-parallel sides.  It signifies a complex problem that is Resolved (not Solved) by following the (green) diagonal Quincunxes, or Curiosities.  The interacting Dilemmas are the mismatch between Fear and Sustaining Authenticity, and between Rebirth and Self-Sovereignty.  These are astrological Angles, not word games, so our usual Language-based approach to a World that is much bigger than Language, may not work.

For instance, Sustaining Authenticity is usually Scary, but is that the issue here?  Maybe it’s about Being Authentic when we’re in Fear.  We won’t know till we Experience it.  We may get clues from the Signs – for instance, Authenticity is in Leo, which we could read as a further admonition not to fake it.  And Sedna is in Taurus, which could indicate our Scarcity.  And how does that interact with Self-Sovereignty and Rebirth?

It’s the Quincunxes that hold the answers.  First we need to remind ourself that Curiosity, Like Love, is an Emotional State to be Sought, not a Problem to be Solved.  We use our PIAVAs to Invite our Intuition to look beyond what our mind, constrained as it is by our Limiting Beliefs, can see. 

We might try “I Wonder how my Self-Sovereignty and my Authenticity might serve one another.”  Then we Change the Subject, because if we don’t put our mind elsewhere, our habitual Patterns of thought will keep us in our old Birdcage.  And we might Ask, “Am I Afraid of Rebirth?” and then Change the Subject.  Later we’d Pay Attention to see if any Insights appeared to us.  We might use Tapping or Poor-Sweethearting or further PIAVAing to follow up on any Insights that did appear, to see what else we might Learn from them.

We’ve been describing the chart of the Eris-Juno Initiation, which, using three-Degree Sensitivity, will to some degree describe our Experience of this weekend.  But, with six-Degree Sensitivity, it will also describe the processes of the next four years, and this new Juno-Eris Cycle unfolds.  We don’t have nearly enough mental bandwidth to follow all 2,000 Cycles, but we can Intend that, when an issue relevant to a give Cycle arises, we Remember the nature of the specific Cycle and gain Perspective from it.

For example, this Initiation is at 24 Degrees; what do we have in our natal chart near 24 Degrees?  We can expect that over the next four years these places in our Life will be enhanced (and probably, along the way, also complicated or troubled) by the Coming into Consciousness of that which had been previously Denied.  We might spend a few moments Asking ourself, with regard to each of our natal planets around 24 Degrees, “What am I Denying about the Influence of this Planet?”

For instance, if we have natal Mars near 24 Degrees, we might Ask ourself “What Angers might I be harboring without being fully Conscious of them?  Have I made Compromises in order to skate around these, avoiding full Authenticity?  Is there any way I might unravel these Patterns Lovingly, Gently, Rapidly, and Completely?  Do I have a Belief that it’s better to Get Along than to be searingly Authentic?  How might my Loyalty to that Belief Contribute to my Lifelong Frustrations?”

We know that this weekend, and the chart of the Initiation, and therefore the next four years, is permeated by the Stations of Makemake and Neptune.  So we know that there are Big Changes afoot around how we Manifest, and around how we view the Material and Spiritual Worlds.  The Initiation chart has hinted about Sustainability and Fear of Scarcity.  We’ve been emphasizing Authenticity and Fear, but we could also emphasize Sustainability and Fear.

It may be useful to Remember that the other side of the Sustainability coin is Sustenance, which involves Eliminating what is Unnecessary.  It may be useful for us to Prioritize what we Really Want in our Lives.

June 17, 2018

So, in addition to the Cornucopia (or the Illusion of a Cornucopia) in the Sabian Symbol, what does the chart of the Eris-Juno Initiation tell us?  Because the three major events that dominate this weekend all occur in different Degrees, they each have Different Stories to tell.

The first Story told is that the Most Important Thing is our Self-Sovereignty…

Which is to say, the Eris-Juno Initiation chart features a T-Square to Lilith.  A T-Square (the red triangle) is a Challenge, a Temptation to yield to Frustration, and an Invitation to become Adept at dealing with the subtleties of the Challenge.  Lilith is about Self-Sovereignty.  If that’s not self-Explanatory, it “just” means you take your Orders from yourself, not from Others.  Even if it’s your Ego issuing the Orders, rather than your Soul or other element of your Higher Self, that can still be good practice.

Of course the Patriarchy marks Lilith’s Rebellion as Egoic, since Competition is what the Patriarchy Understands, and Female Self-Sovereignty was and is a criminal Betrayal to the Patriarchy.

We’ve included Pluto and Klotho with Lilith, even though they’re a bit more than three Degrees from the Degree of the Initiation; they’re more than close enough to have a strong influence on any Project that we’d Begin this weekend, and as we’ll see, this chart strongly suggests we’ll be Reborn.

Pluto adds the element of Compulsion to Self-Sovereignty.  The New Lilith-Pluto Cycle began in mid-May at 22 Capricorn, “By accepting defeat gracefully, a general reveals nobility of character.”  Lilith-Pluto is a nine-year Cycle, and the Patriarchy is unlikely to accept defeat, gracefully or otherwise, by 2027, though of course we needn’t exclude the possibility. 

However, the Sabian Symbol suggests continued major progress.  Bear in mind though that during the first quarter of any Cycle, the Resistance of the Olde Order dominates the airwaves, so to find evidence of the New during this period, we need to Look For It.  #MeToo may encounter some defeats of its own here.  We can expect the Apparent Tide to shift at the Lilith-Pluto Waxing Square, around the time that the two-century Digital Age begins in earnest, in 2020-2021. 

Our job in the interim is to continue to Conspire to promote the New Cycle, for instance by Acting and Speaking as though the Patriarchy has already Surrendered.  The folks who are on the fence gain the Courage to step up when they hear enough Voices and see enough Commitment to know that they won’t be Alone when they do, so at this stage our Voices and Actions are even more influential than usual, even though the media will repeatedly emphasize our minority or ignore us entirely.

Klotho, of course, represents New Beginnings.  The latest 4-year Klotho-Pluto Cycle (Realizing that our old methods don’t work, and starting over) began at the March Equinox in the same 22 Capricorn, reinforcing the same Energy as the New Lilith-Pluto Cycle.

The New Klotho-Lilith Cycle (Initiating New Patterns of Self-Sovereignty) began in mid-February at 11 Capricorn, “A large group of pheasant on a private estate.”  This is a picture of the Closure of the Commons.  In the Patriarchy, Greed is Good.  We can easily envision a wall of hungry immigrants just beyond the fence of the estate, adding an Overpopulation picture to the Greed picture, and challenging our Beliefs about WeAreAllOne. 

The whole “what if everyone did that?” pseudo-argument that was used to try to Manipulate and Control many of us by our Programmers, comes to mind.  Lots of Fears to be Let Go Of in this nine-year Cycle.

The base of the Lilith T-Square is the Opposition between the Eris-Juno Initiation itself (the Coming into Consciousness of that which Has Previously Been Denied) and Haumea (Rebirth) – so you can see why we stretched our Sensitivity to Birth proportions and included Klotho.  Bear in mind that Denial is a healthy psychological Response to that which would Overwhelm our Ego and threaten to reverse our Growth in Consciousness.

But the Big Deal here is that this isn’t a usual T-Square, it’s a Diamond Star, which is formed when the focus of the T-Square (Lilith) is also the focus of a Yod (the green wedge).  This creates the “bowl of Grace” (blue lines) under the T-Square, as it’s Bridged by Sun-Chaos (Unlimited Potential is our Essence) and Moon-Ceres (Sustainable Authenticity).

A Diamond Star is interpreted as a Challenge that Resolves itself, as the bowl of Grace Acts to Mediate the Challenge.  Not only that, but this T-Square has two additional Bridges, a Trine (Grace) Bridge through dwarf planet Ixion (our Abandoned Genius), and a Quincunx (Curiosity) Bridge through Sedna (Facing and Embracing Fear as Power)…

Ixion, the Cosmic Bad Boy, represents your Best Qualities and Strongest Skills, which your Programmers, through Competition or their own Programming, Suppressed.  It’s been Opposing, and continues to Oppose, dwarf planet Chaos, symbolizing the Unlimited Potential that will be available to us when we Recover our Abandoned Genius.

And Sedna doesn’t just form a Quincunx Bridge, it’s the apex of a Yod from the Sextile between Ixion and Haumea – Pay Attention to your Fears in order to midwife the Rebirth of your Hidden Genius.  Fear is Power Rejected, Power we Fear.  Meet it with Breathing, Tapping, Kegels, Poor-Sweethearts, and PIAVAs.  Practice till you automatically and instantly shift from Fear to Excitement.  Fear is the Absence of Love, and Love Is All There Is.  When you’re in Fear, you aren’t in Is, you’re in Aren’t.

But, this is a Quincunx Bridge – it’s about Curiosity, as is the Yod.  So we’ll have to avoid drawing any Conclusions about our Fear, or about The Fear.  We Want it to be more like “I’m Scared, I Wonder How I’ll Feel and What Will Happen when I do Kegels.”  Rather than “Great, those Kegels replaced my Fear with Excitement,” try “Wow, I Wonder where this Excitement will Lead me.” 

You want to Wonder about “What Will Happen” when you Embrace your Fear because it will Change your Beliefs, potentially your Core Beliefs (especially with Ixion and Chaos involved in the Dance), and when your Beliefs Change, the World Changes.

More to say about the Eris-Juno Initiation, so to be continued…

June 16, 2018

Because they’re so close in Time, we really have to consider the 16 June Makemake Station and the 17 June Eris-Juno Initiation and the 18 June Neptune Station as all one astroevent.  They cover most of the Zodiac – with our minimal three-Degree Sensitivity they together span 0-6 and 14-27 Degrees, leaving only 7-13 and 28-29 bare.  With six Degrees of Sensitivity (or “Orb” if you speak astologuese), which we’d normally use for reviewing any new Project, including any Personal Rebirth, we cover all but a few Degrees of the Zodiacal Loop.

That means “Nobody Gets Out Alive,” if we’re talking about Egos – everyone gets Transformed to some degree this weekend.  So we’ve summarized the Makemake Station as The End of Self-Sabotage.  Let’s look at the 17 June Eris-Juno Initiation (9:30 pm PDT) before we try to combine the three events. 

Our favorite astroevents are Stations and Initiations, Stations because they Infuse our Planet with the Energy of the Stationary planet.  They’re when the Stationary planet is at its Strongest, and our best Opportunity to Learn about that planet.  Of course, when several big events Converge, we Learn more about the Convergence than about the Planet – this weekend we’re Learning more about Neptune-Makemake, with a big dash of Juno-Eris, than about either Neptune or Makemake.

We would Expect Neptune-Makemake to be slippery, as Neptune is slippery.  Most Important, Confusion is the first Stage of Growth.  Neptune represents Material Confusion but Spiritual Clarity.  Now, since Makemake is about Manifesting into Matter and Form, Material Confusion isn’t going to help us Learn much about Makemake – unless we have a very Open mind, a Cosmic sense of Humor, and use PIAVAs a lot.  Using PIAVAs a lot, we’re accustomed to Funhouse Mirrors (in the Pay Attention phase), where Distortions are our Teachers.

Let’s take an example.  We have our Lifelong Unsatisfied Longing.  We toggle, as we have all our Life, from “God I Want That” to “It’s Not Possible” and back again.  If you’re like me, you’ve been through that Fish-outa-Water flip-flop a couple of times already this weekend.  To be “jerked around by Reality” so frequently and violently would normally be Devastating.  But not this weekend, right?

First of all, we’ve gotten hip to our Chironean Victim that Believes itself to be “Jerked around by Reality,” and we’ve started to Take some Responsibility for it, Realizing that it’s our own Conflicting Unconscious or Semi-Conscious Desires and Goals that make it feel like we’re being Jerked around.  Which means that instead of Despairing about our Hopelessness, we’re instead a bit Dazed – Confused – by the Topsy-Turvy-ness of it all. 

Which is Exactly where we need to be, as in order to Grow, we need to regard Confusion as an Emotion to be Felt and Embraced exactly as it is, rather than as a Problem to be Solved.  We’ll Learn more about that, and about how it Relates to Curiosity, when we discuss the Yods and Fezzes in the Eris-Juno Initiation chart.  Curiosity, if we Enjoy it as an Emotion to be Felt and Embraced exactly as it is, rather than as a Problem to be Solved, is akin to Love, as both Eschew Judgment.  We all know that “the greatest of these is Love” – and Curiosity is only a step behind.

And second, we’ve gotten some Insight into the fact that our Lifelong Unsatisfied Longing isn’t just a Conundrum of our own making; it’s a nanoscale Reflection of a Millennia-Scale Shift that’s happening on this Planet.  The Frustration and Confusion aren’t just Yours – they’re Planetary.  As Below, So Above.  The Consciousness of the Planet, and of every Entity on it, is Evolving, and your Confusion and resulting Growth (if you can Avoid the Problem-to-be-Solved Reaction) are a tiny tiny but oh-so-Essential part of that Evolution.

And you may well have, at least on occasion, make the leap from Victim-of-Circumstances to Victim-of-Your-Own-Conflicting-Choices and on to “Oh Right, I Remember, That’s What I Came Here For!”  If you’ve read this far, you’re an “Old Soul” and a Healer.  The very Conundrum that has been so Confounding your Ego, is the very Planetary Issue that your Soul Chose to Take this Lifetime for, so you could Help the Planet Evolve.  You only need to “Unbecome everything that isn’t you so you can Become who you were meant to Be in the first place.

Which brings us to Initiations.  The Energies that bathe us Dance in Cycles.  If we use four planets, we have six Cycles.  Say we use Moon, Mars, Juno, and Pluto.  Then our Cycles are Moon-Mars, Moon-Juno, Moon-Pluto, Mars-Juno, Mars-Pluto, and Juno-Pluto.  Every time we start a new Cycle, we Change the Water – the Zeitgeist of the Energy that bathes us Changes.  Many people pay attention to Changes of Sign, when for example Sun leaves Gemini and enters Cancer.  That’s a similar kind of Change.

Since we usually pay attention to 44 planets, that’s a heck of a lot of Cycles – almost 2,000 of them I think, way too many to keep track of.  But the End of one Cycle and the Beginning of the Next is an important milestone, and fortunately some of the 2,000 Cycles only Change their Water at long intervals – for instance, the Neptune-Makemake Cycle lasts 51,000 years or so. 

So while we’ve had an unusually large number of New Cycles lately (as we’d Expect with the Planet Shifting so), there’s only one New Cycle starting this weekend.  Not counting the Moon Cycles, which we usually ignore because they last only a month – there’s a new Moon-Ceres Cycle starting this weekend too.  Since Moon symbolizes Authenticity and Ceres Sustainability, that’s actually important.

Ceres Initiates the Moon on 17 June at 7pm PDT in 26 Leo – “After the heavy storm, a rainbow.”  Sounds like the next month holds the Potential for a Pot O’Gold.

We refer to the Beginning of a New Cycle as an Initiation, because it’s as if the slower (more Powerful, from the Soul’s Perspective) planet delivers Shaktipat or an assignment to the faster (more Powerful, from the Ego’s Perspective) planet.  We interpret the nature of the Cycle from two sources – the Degree of the Initiation and its Sabian Symbol, and the chart of the Initiation.

So in our Moon-Ceres example, the Consciousness of Sustainability says to the Consciousness of Authenticity, “You’ve been working very hard, why don’t you take a month off and Enjoy the Beauty of what you’ve Created.”  Of course each of us shares a shard of the Consciousness of Sustainability and a shard of the Consciousness of Authenticity, so we Feel this Change through those Channels. 

As for the chart of the Initiation, it features Makemake and Neptune Stationary, and Eris Initiating Juno.  That’s a bit heavier, more like “Wow, this Cycle’s going to be a doozy.  By focusing on the Beauty of what you’ve Created, you’ll Manifest the Vibration that you Want.  It’s better to do this without direct Conscious Intention, so the Ego interferes less, as your Consciousness is due for Revelations that may feel like a Shock, and you don’t want to Resist.”

In the case of the more Profound (it spans eight years rather than one month) Eris-Juno Initiation at 9:30 pm PDT 17 June in 24 Aries, the Sabian Symbol is “Blown inward by the Wind, the curtains of an Open window take the shape of a Cornucopia.”  Which says to me that, if we can Avoid the Problem-to-Be-Solved Reaction to our Neptunian Confusion, we will be opening up to great Abundance around our Lifelong Unsatisfied Longing.  If you contemplate that for a few minutes, I’ll wager you’ll find that you already have.

By the way, when we’re referring to the Cycle, we put the faster (Ego) planet first, because it’s zipping ahead of the slower planet and in the process Acting Out the Cycle.  When we’re referring to the Initiation, we put the slower (Soul) planet first, because it’s the one providing the Shaktipat or assignment.  Of course which planet is Ego (faster) and which one Soul (slower) is relative; in the Moon-Ceres Cycle, Moon/Autheticity is Ego and Ceres/Sustainability is Soul, but in the Ceres-Jupiter Cycle, Sustainability represents Ego while Expansion/Jupiter plays the role of Soul.

Wants, Mission, Compromise 2

Under this Self-Sovereignty New Moon, I’ve run across a great quote from Liz Randol, http://www.spiritpath-healing.com/:

Maybe the journey isn’t so much about becoming anything.  Maybe it’s unbecoming everything that isn’t you so you can become who you were meant to be in the first place.

Lots of good stuff on her website and blog.

The first of our three long-weekend charts is the Makemake Station…

As you can see, it’s not just Stationary, but also the Star of a Yod, meaning Pay Attention To What You’re Manifesting!  It’s also accompanied by Eurydike (Trust) and Atropos (Endings).  We could interpret that in lots of ways, but our first Choice would be “The Methods you’ve been using to Manifest aren’t Creating What You Want; Stop using them, and Trust that what will appear in their place will work better.”

The base of the Yod is the Sextile between OR10 (Intrustive Memories) and Uranus-Sappho (Soul-Level Self-Love).  In other words, All you need to do to extend Unconditional Love to the Urges of your own Soul, is Remember what it’s like.  Refer back to Liz’s quote – “the journey isn’t so much about becoming anything, it’s unbecoming everything that isn’t you so you can become who you were meant to be in the first place.”  It’s a Sextile, so it’s up to you to take the first step and Allow those Memories in without Resistance.  The rest will take care of itself.

The Station and its Fellow Travelers are also one corner of the base of a T-Square (Challenge to Become Adept) to dwarf planets Quaoar (Survival Instincts) and Pholus (Being Fully Willing to Respond)…

The upshot here is that Trusting what will Fill the Void after you stop Sabotaging your own Manifestations, is a matter of Survival.  The other corner of the base is Chiron, our Adept at Transforming Pain into Miracles, advising us that Our Pain and Suffering is the Doorway to Effortless Manifestation.  One approach is to be Unconditionally Loving with our Pain and Suffering, as in, “You Poor Sweetheart, …”  Another is to rely on PIAVA (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/) rather than Work. 

The T-Square has three Bridges, or Easy Ways to Become Adept at Effortlessly Manifesting What You Really Want…

  • Through Valuing the Life Force, or Making Choices that Promote the Fullness of Life rather than Limiting It (the Trine Bridge through Venus and dwarf planet Varuna).
  • Through Fully Embracing your own Personal History as a Perfect Mirror for those of your Unconscious Habits that Sabotage your Life, and those that Enrich your Life (the Trine Bridge through asteroid Karma).
  • Through Recognizing that your Perspective on Truth is always evolving, requiring Perpetual Curiosity about it; if you Believe you Understand Truth, you Lose (Quincunx Bridge through asteroid Veritas).

Notice that Chiron, Karma, and Venus-Varuna form a Fire Grand Trine and a Makemake Kite, meaning that Spiritual Grace infuses your Experience of the long weekend and of the process of Ending Self-Sabotaging Manifestation (the Makemake Station and its Companions, asteroids Eurydike and Atropos).

The Karma T-Square makes an almost perfect Mirror-image of the Quaoar-Pholus T-Square…

Both T-Squares (red triangles, Challenges to Become Adept) have one Quincunx Bridge (green lines, Curiosity), and two Trine Bridges (blue lines, Blessings) that form a Grand Trine (blue triangle, Dumb-Luck Grace) and a Kite (hat on blue triangle, Directed Grace).

This second Grand Trine is in Earth Signs, indicating Great Blessings in Manifesting What You Want into Matter and Formif You’re Able to Be Fully Responsive to your Karma.  That would mean that you constantly Ask, “How and When Did I Choose This?”  Whatever Disconnect there is between What You Want and What You’re Manifesting, is the result of a Choice You once made.  Not “You” in the sense of your Present-Moment Ego, but You in the sense of your Soul and your accumulated Personal and Karmic History.

Why would you have Chosen to Sabotage Yourself?  There could have been many reasons.  You may have been trying to Choose Safety rather than Vulnerability, and so hiding your Light under a bushel.  You may have simply Wanted the Experience once, then made the mistake of letting it become an Addiction.  You may have Wanted to Experience Addiction.  There’s a good chance you were trying to Please someone, or Avoid Displeasing them, or Avoid Punishment.  You may not have been ready for Death, and so Chose Slavery instead.

The original Reasons aren’t actually important, other than if they help you understand that the original Choice was yours, and that you are now Free to Choose otherwise.  You may even understand that Karma is Dead, and laugh at the Paper Tigers that its Ghost is sending your way – Confirmations, as Natalie and Sananda put it in our previous post.

The T-Square itself, to asteroid Karma from a base of asteroid Veritas and dwarf planet OR10, Asks us to Behold the Truth (Veritas) of the Memories that Intrude (OR10), and Choose to Respond Differently this time.  The Trine Bridges tell us that the Easy Path runs through Wondering how we can most Value the Life Force (Venus-Varuna Quincunx Bridge), Surrendering to Unconditional Love and Obedience for the Voice of our Soul (Sappho-Uranus Trine Bridge), and Being Fully Responsive to our Survival Instincts (Pholus-Quaoar Trine Bridge).
