Another reader writes…

“Thank you as always for your excellent and enlightening insights – this week and always!  I wanted to share a strange thing that happened recently, as it pertains to the alignments this week.  I’m accustomed to following my natal and transiting chart regularly, and my own knowledge and awareness is constantly growing, much to which is to your credit.

“Roughly two years ago, and what a year 2016 was, I was living in London where I’d been relocated for work.  There were many absolutely awful occurrences over the course of my time there – on the global and personal scale – but what totally upended my entire time there and ultimately my entire career was a seemingly fated freak accident that occurred immediately after I landed back in London, on January 6, 2017.

“I tripped on a cobble stone, on Abbey Road no less, and split my knee open end to end in a deep gash that required 23 stitches, put an air bubble in the joint itself, and required 2 follow-up surgeries, the second of which I had when I returned home to the states.  I ended up leaving that job and I’ve been in a very odd state of flux in the meantime, trying to ground myself.

“What is odd is that two nights ago, December 9, I was walking home carrying a bag of groceries, and very intently thinking about the knee injury and how long the recovery took and how much I needed to push forward with exercising more – with everything, really.  Not even within 60 seconds of this very distinct thought process, I tripped into an open pothole in my street – flailing for what felt like an eternity before slamming down EXACTLY on the direct spot that my January 6 injury hit, directly on the most scarred part where the surgeon had removed a lot of damaged tissue.

“I could hardly believe it, or that it was mere coincidence, so as soon as I limped back inside I looked at my natal/transiting chart for Jan 6 2017 and that day’s chart of Dec 9.  I know Capricorn rules knees (and career) and thus Saturn as ruler carries those influences as well.  On that January day, the sun and pluto were in close conjunction in Cap on my descendant, as well as transiting Saturn on my natal Karma (in Sag but house ruled by Cap).

“BZ has been fascinating me lately and I really appreciate your latest interpretations of meaning.  Currently as you know the moon (as of the 9th anyway) Saturn, BZ and Karma are all right around the exact positions they were in Jan 2017.  Moira is smack on my ascendant at the moment, directly across from Pluto.

“Apologies for the long story, but I’m trying my darn best to find the message here – I can’t help but think that 2 falls to the same knee, same spot, and particularly when I was so consciously aware of the injury directly before the second fall and didn’t prevent it anyway – that something is bringing me to my “knees” – and I feel like I’m missing the message entirely.  Is this all because of the Pluto Capricorn position?

“If Moira is on my ascendant I am hoping it will help me release the kinds of karmic repetitions I seem to be caught up in. I’d love to be grounded – with both knees – and I can’t tell what I’m missing here, but just thought I would share, and thank you again for all your illuminating brilliance. :-)”

Wow is right!  Talk about “Coincidences”!

For a while during the 1980s I was doing “content-free” readings.  I’d make no attempt to interpret or predict what was going on, I’d just tell clients that their Experience of the next month would be similar to their Experience of such-and-such a month in the past (when their Transits were similar).  One client responded that they didn’t think this was going to be possible, because at the earlier time she was busy Attending to her infant daughter, and she was now beyond child-bearing age.  A month later she wrote back to say that she was busy Attending to her infant granddaughter because her daughter had been unexpectedly unable to do so.

Thanks, by the way, for your kind words!  Namaste!

The first thing that pops to mind for me is how important it is to be Conscious of what we’re thinking about, so that we’re able to interrupt the thinking process by saying “Cancel, Neutralize, Update” whenever we catch ourself thinking about any result we don’t Want.

The Ritual is short for Cancel those thoughts, Neutralize the Vibrations they’ve Created, and Upgrade the person who thought them – namely us.

The Universe seems to be Telling or Reminding you about how much Power you have.  As Dan Scranton’s Arcturian friends put it, Nothing Manifests into hardcopy Reality without first being Manifested as Energy – without first being Consciously or Unconsciously PIAVAed in other words.  All Prayers are answered, and all thoughts are actually Prayers.  So whichever part of the Universe is in charge of Physical Manifestation, It/They heard your thoughts as an Intention.  Which is an ever-present danger for all of us, even if we rarely Experience it so vividly.

There’s the Mindfulness Perspective, and a Powerful Reminder that thinking is always a major impediment to Mindfulness and Spontaneity.  Often thinking prevents Mindfulness completely.  Do you remember what you were thinking about when that Abbey Road cobblestone interrupted you?

I hope your knee wasn’t seriously hurt this time.

If so, Gratitude that you can make a “misstep” with less serious Consequences now, relative to two years ago, and Self-Recognition for your Progress, are very much in order.  Remember that our Karma does not Grasp us, we Grasp it.  Whenever it recurs, we have the Choice of thinking…

“Shitodear, that again!  Will I ever be free of that?”

or thinking…

“Oho, there’s that old Karmic Pattern again, trying to trick me into getting Heavy about it again.  No, I’m hip to that Pattern.  I’ll just PIAVA that I’m done with it.”

Angels can fly because they take themselves Lightly.

It would be a good place to do Theta and Tapping together, where we Theta that we’re done with it…

“God/Goddess, Creator of All That Is, I Command that I am Complete with the Pattern of Injuring my Knees.  It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done.  Thank you, God/Goddess.  Show me…”  (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava/theta/)

Then if you get a picture in your mind’s eye that your knees are fine, or a Feeling in your Belly that All Is Well, you’re done.  If you get a Troubling picture or Feeling, then Tap It Out

“Even though I’m injuring my knees too often, I deeply and completely Love and Accept Myself…”  (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzVd6Ww0as4)

Then do the Theta again, to see if the Outcome has changed.

Keep repeating the duet until you’re Clear, each time making whatever modifications to your Theta Command and your Tapping setup statement that seem to be Meaningful in the moment.

(That’s Eric Clapton on lead guitar in this version.)

This is an hour long, but Nick is a leading proponent of Tapping as a Tool for anyone to “Try on Everything.”  If you haven’t watched much in the way of EFT videos, I highly recommend you watch it…

I think this is the most important Lesson any of us have to Learn, that Karma is Dead.  Only its Echo Lives in our Expectations and Fears, where we Unconsciously Choose to perpetuate it, until we Realize…

“Wait a minute, I Create My Own Reality.”

That statement becomes indisputably true when we Realize that “I” doesn’t mean our Ego, it means our Complete Entity, our Soul if we can use the word that way, to mean the Full Spiritual, Emotional, intellectual, Physical, Egoic Entity that we are.  As Popeye would say, “I Yam What I Yam.”

One way to Rectify Ego with Creating-Our-Own-Reality, is to refer to the part of us which is Disconnected from our Sense of Self, as “Unconscious.”  We postulate that there is an Unrecognized part of ourself that Wants our Attention, and is desperate enough for it that it’s willing to Hurt us to get it.  Then our Path is clearly Getting to Know this Stranger!  We might use a Gestalt technique, with two chairs, or we might just Recognize that Hey, this is the Unconscious, which means that we don’t have Conscious access to it, so we have to use PIAVA techniques (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/).

Since we’ve Identified a place where we’re a Victim, we could even Poor-Sweetheart ourself – “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re unintentionally Hurting your knees, aren’t you.”  It was Chiron that was Lit Up on 9 December after all, Chiron the Adept at Making us Aware of our Victim places, the places where we Give Away our Power.  What was Chiron up to in your January 2017 Transits?  (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/poor-sweetheart/).

Just to take this a step further, our approach to the Unconscious more or less follows Jung’s Perspective, that the Unconscious (not Subconscious) represents the rest of our Wholeness, beckoning to us.  But I’ve been reading RJ Stewart lately, an expert on Irish/Celtic Mythology.  The Celts may be the remnant of Atlantean Wisdom that survived in Europe.

RJ tells us that there’s no such thing as the “Unconscious,” there’s only Other Realities in other Dimensions.  If we intersect the notion of {Karma as information left over from Past Lives} with the notion that {All There Is Is Now}, this is an obvious introduction to Parallel Lives.

But this kind of turns our notion of Karma on it’s head.  It’s as if what was Karma becomes Bleedthrough, where one of “our” (not the Ego but the Complete Entity) Parallel Lifetimes is providing Riddles to the Lifetime that we usually Believe is the only one we’re Living, Riddles that will help us toward Integration.  As if our Complete Entity is Weaving a Complex Conspiracy to make each of us parts or spawn of Itself, Conscious of as much of us as possible.

So our Karma becomes our Introduction to the Rest of Ourself.  Of course, we usually interpret Karma (the South Node) as our Held Emotions, those we’d rather Die (ie, Ego Death) than Feel, and which obscure the Hidden Skills we need to Achieve our Mission in the Lifetime.  If our Ultimate Mission is Integration with our other Parallels, then this fits perfectly.

We also usually think of our current Lifetime as a Courtesy Mission to help our Host Planet deal with an Obstacle to its own Integration (though it’s presumptuous to assume a planet isn’t already Integrated).  Since our current Lifetime is a cell in the Consciousness of the Planet – we aren’t Separate – Expansion of our own Consciousness is actually a small Integration for the Planet.

Finally, we need a short note about Moira.  The Greek Tragedies describe what happens when we’re not Mindful of what’s going on around us.  They’re written to make us Feel Trapped in our Fate, but Conscious Awareness – of our Karma – turns our Fate into Choice.  So the prominence of Moira is a Tell that we’re ready to Transcend the Victimhood of Karma.

December 11, 2018

A reader writes to say their Sun is at 8 Capricorn.  We’ve been writing about 8-11 Capricorn in earlier Wow articles (especially https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/12/08/wow-vi/), because asteroids Karma (Self-Sabotaging Habits) and BZ509 (Transcendence), Saturn (The Most Important Thing), and dwarf planet Hylonome (Self-Sovereignty) have all been jammed up in that Zone.  Assuming that our reader is rounding up like we all should be…

That is, planets at 7:00 through 7:59 of any Sign are in the 8th Degree or that Sign (such as 8 Capricorn or Capricorn 8), while planets at 8:00 through 8:59 are in the 9th Degree, etc.  This makes sense when you realize that planets in 0:00 through 0:59 of a Sign are in the 1st Degree of that Sign.

…then most of this Energy will already have passed for our reader.  Since we focus on Interpretation rather than Prediction, that’s no problem for us, and may be a relief for our reader, depending on how pleasant or unpleasant their recent Experience has been.  If our reader feels like they have missed an Opportunity, they need to Poor-Sweetheart themself about that immediately.  There are no Missed Opportunities, only Lessons Learned, and Learning them after the fact is just as good or better than Learning them mid-stream.

See https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/poor-sweetheart/ if you aren’t expert at Poor-Sweethearting.

Our natal Sun, astrologically, indicates our Essence.  So looking just at “Transiting” (that means “in the sky now,” as opposed to “natal,” which means when you were born – almost everything we talk about here is Transiting) Saturn, The Most Important Thing for our reader is that they be True to their Essence.  That usually means dropping all of our Social Conditioning and Programming and other places where we aren’t Speaking and Acting our Truth.

For someone with “Nice Disease” (the need to be Nice all of the time), this idea is usually Horrifying.  So maybe our reader has been having a hard time continuing to suppress Capricorn’s natural tendency to dispense Advice more than Expressing Compassion.  Capricorn is about Just Fix It, and when Capricorn knows how to Fix It, it can have little patience for excuses, even if Capricorn’s method of Fixing It doesn’t at all apply to the person or Sign they’re talking to.  Capricorn Lives in a Material World; most of the other Signs Live in an Emotional or Spiritual or Intellectual World.

We’re talking about Signs here, not people.  Individual people have lots of planets in many Signs, so are always much more multidimensional than the characteristics of just one Sign, even if it’s their Sun Sign.

Capricorn/Just Fix It is a very valuable Sign/Principle to have handy when you’re working to solve a Material problem, so Capricorn’s Advice is indispensable.  When Pisces describes a problem, though, it’s (again, we’re talking about Signs, not people) usually an Emotional issue (even if it’s described in Material terms), so Material advice feels to Pisces like it hasn’t been heard.  Note that this can happen even within one person – if you have Sun in Capricorn and Moon in Pisces, and your Sun for some reason thinks it has all the Answers, your Moon is going to be the odd one out, and your own Happiness and Balance will Suffer.

So looking only at Transiting Saturn, our reader may have recently had a hard time suppressing their Just Fix It tendencies.  Of course, if our reader is Self-Aware, they would probably have had some Aha moments about how they Judge themself for not Just Fixing It every time some issue comes up again.  For instance, our Karmic issues don’t usually respond to just being turned with a wrench, they need a lot more than that, such as Opening to Held Emotions and the resulting Ego Deaths, which can Deconstruct the very Infrastructure that Capricorn is so proud of building.

So Transiting Saturn-asteroid Karma means that The Most Important Thing is Attending to our Self-Sabotaging Patterns, and Capricorn by itself may not have all of the Tools necessary to do that.  So our reader may have recently found themself Integrating diverse elements of their Persona.

When we factor in dwarf planet Hylonome, the need to jettison False Personae gets much more intense.  Hylonome can follow a False Path even into Death if we allow it to operate without our Conscious Awareness.  Our reader has survived to write to us, so we know that didn’t happen.  But they may have had some difficult moments saying NO! to other people with whom they’ve been Merged, or they may have had to bail themselves out of difficult situations where they hadn’t said NO! earlier on.

Then there’s asteroid BZ509, or Transcendence, which can Feel Ecstatic or like someone’s ripping out a finger by its roots.  So our reader almost certainly Transcended some elements of these Conundrums at the intersection of Just Fix It, Self-Sabotage, Self-Abandonment, Priorities, and the Material World.  And they would have Learned a great deal about these Complexities, probably had some Powerful Epiphanies.  And in the process, probably Suffered to one degree or another, since the Convergence of so many issues is intensely Confusing, and few of us Remember immediately that Confusion is the first stage of Growth, and Relax into it.

All of which, by the way, is a good definition, albeit by example, of how an astrological Stellium (group of three or more planets in one place) works its Magic and Misery upon us.  And the rest of us, even if we don’t have any planets near 8-11 Capricorn, have probably felt this Conglomeration to some degree.  Note too that the neighborhoods of 8-11 Aries, Cancer, and Libra will also be activated whenever 8-11 Capricorn is Lit Up, so most of us Experienced some portion of these Confusions.

Another aside: When we first Open up to a Repressed Energy, its virtual age is the age when it was first Repressed.  So if we Learned to always be Nice at age 6, then our Opportunity to be otherwise (such as Honest) will be frozen at the first-grade level.  That’s part of the Horror we Experience at having to Open up to Repressed parts of our Persona.

Not to worry.  We’ll be very clumsy at first being, eg, Honest instead of Nice, but our Niceness will still be their, so we’ll very quickly come up to speed on Learning to be Nice while being Honest.  They aren’t after all mutually exclusive, they just require a bit of finesse to combine, and if you’ve been Nice all your Life, that finesse will come quickly.  The same applies to any other repressed characteristic.  If you want help, spend time gazing into the depths of this Manganotantalite Crystal before you enter a challenging situation…

The other Yin Gate in the Chiron-Station chart centers on the Opposition between Mercury (Awareness) and Sedna-Lachesis (Reframing Fear).  This is important for many of us because Sedna is Stationary soon (first week of February) at 27 Taurus.  The Star Algol, generally considered the most malign of Stars, sits at 27 Taurus, so a casual reading would likely warn of Catastrophe – and given the state of Humanity’s Relationship to its Home Planet, Catastrophe wouldn’t be a big surprise.

Catastrophe for the Patriarchy, that is.  Algol symbolizes Female Power, Anger, and Sexuality.  Lachesis is about scheduling Timelines, and in the context of Consciousness (Awareness), it represents Choosing to End a Self-Sabotaging Timeline.  This obsolete Timeline could be about Women Living in Fear and subjugation.

The Paradox is that we don’t really Believe that we have the Power to just End our Timelines unilaterally.  As long we perceive ourselves as Victims or potential Victims of large-scale processes and events such as Global Warming or rising Fascism, and we understandably don’t believe we can turn those around by ourselves, we’re stuck.  What we don’t Realize is that we do have the Power to Change how these Patterns impact us Personally – by PIAVAing just that.

See https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/ if you don’t grok PIAVAing.

We might feel Selfish to Protect ourself from global Bummers from which many others Suffer greatly.  But the more people refuse to accept those Patterns as “just the way it is,” the faster the Global Energy will Change.  Our Self-Protection is one of the Strongest ways we have to End the Timelines.  And just because we are Protected, doesn’t mean we can’t take Actions to facilitate Ending the Patterns on the Global scale.

We’ve said before that Passion and Neutrality are not mutually exclusive, though they appear to be just that to the Victim Ego.  In fact, when we Act from Neutrality we can be much more Effective than when we Act purely from unbridled Passion.  That may be the primary Paradox that we’re Learning here.

This second Yin Gate is about Awareness that Timelines of Fear can be Ended Consciously.  If we Fear what we don’t Understand, and if we don’t Believe we can Change what we don’t Understand – both common characteristics of the Dualistic mind – then we have no Power over Fear.  But we have demonstrated to ourselves (or can do so right now if we so choose) that…

  • Fear + Breathing = Excitement
  • Fear + Kegels = Power
  • Fear + Vision = Equanimity

…and other similar equations that Convert Fear to Power.  We wnat to be very familiar, even Habitual, with these Practices before February.

Just to slow us down when we do lapse into Trying to Understand, the next-most prominent elements of the Chiron Station chart are two Yin Gates.  A Yin Gate happens when three planets are one Sign apart, each Opposite another planet, forming a rectangle bisected in the long dimension.

Put Mercury (☿) at the bottom of the chart to see one of the Yin Gates, characterized graphically by two green Xs in a tall blue rectangle, with a red asterisk between them.  Put Ixion and Pholus (Pholus.svg) at the bottom of the chart to see the second Yin Gate.

A Yin Gate symbolizes a Mystery School, the purpose of which is to move the Initiate past the Duality of the mind and into Recognizing the Unitary Multidimensionality of the Real World.  Which means, from the perspective of Dualism, Paradox.  The Real World is nonlinear, the primary manifestation of which is that Contradiction is a property of the Observing mind, not a property of the Observed World.

The primary Paradox is Illuminated by the central Opposition – here Chaos (Unlimited Potential) Opposite Ixion-Pholus (Responding to our Forbidden Genius), and Mercury (Awareness) Opposite Sedna-Lachesis (Reframing Fear).  The four corners of the blue rectangle, and the diagonal Oppositions, flesh out the nature of the paradox.

So for instance we might initially believe that the likely result of Responding to our Forbidden Genius would be Punishment, as that has likely been our historical Experience.  In general, an astrological Opposition (Second Harmonic) doesn’t imply a Logical Contradiction, since the Second Harmonic is about Ritual.  The Opposition implies the Duality that we must Do the Ritual correctly or it won’t work, because the Power of Ritual lies in Repetition.

So the proper Cultural and Religious Ritual is to quite purposely NOT Respond to the Desires of our Forbidden Genius.  Responding would Open a social can of worms, of Unlimited Potential for Disorder.  Dwarf planet Chaos by itself doesn’t symbolize Disorder, it implies Unrealized Potential.  The proper Esoteric Psychological Ritual is that we MUST Respond to the Desires of our Forbidden Genius, or suffer forever remaining a Partial Person.  The proper Esoteric Religious Ritual is to Constrain Response to the Desires of our Forbidden Genius within the bounds of Rituals that are kept Private from the general public.

The proper 5D Ritual is that Responding to the Desires of our Forbidden Genius (and tolerating the actual or perceived 3D social condemnation) is necessary for Yintegrity to function.  As Rudhyar said, “When you don’t follow your nature there is a hole in the universe where you were supposed to be.”

Recovering your Forbidden Genius is a prerequisite for moving to 5D – where you will have Unlimited Potential to Manifest your Deepest Desires.  If you feel like you Understand that, you’ll have to Let It Go, because Paradox isn’t something that we Understand, it’s something we have to Accept, and something that’s Initiated by Confusion and Curiosity.  There are still miles to go before we sleep.

December 9, 2018

This Chiron-Station (9 December 12am PST) chart is worth another look…Chiron (Pain/Miracles) itself is the focus of a T-Square (Challenge) from Chaos (Unlimited Potential) and Ixion-Pholus (Being Responsive to our Forbidden Genius).  That’s pretty big.  It says that our Discomfort is arising from our failing to Stretch far enough into the Big Opportunity that would be Created by Opening to our Forbidden Genius.  We intuitively know what a Gift we’re Rejecting.  So how to intervene?  Poor-Sweethearting our Victim.  “You Poor Sweetheart, you aren’t feeling on top of the World, are you.”

Then Change the Subject, put your Attention on something else, something unrelated.  If you try to intellectualize the situation you’ll just screw it up, because you’ll impose your Old Limitations on it.  We need to Escape our Old Limitations, not run back to their Safety.  To be continued…

December 8, 2018

The other simple Conjunction in the Orcus-Station chart is the 4 December (2pm PST) Initiation of Pallas (Boundaries) by Aletheia (Truth) at 13 Libra, “Children blowing soap bubbles.”  Since Pallas (4.6 years) and Aletheia (5.6 years) have similar orbital lengths, Pallas can chase Aletheia around the Zodiac for about 23 years before they Initiate a New Cycle.  We’ve been in the Old Cycle since 1995.

The basic Pallas-Aletheia Cycle is about how well our Boundaries serve us.  Do they keep us Safe while Letting In the Lessons we need to Expand our Consciousness?  Do they Eliminate Threats to our Life while Allowing our Ego Deaths?  Are our Boundaries True, in other words.  Since 1995 we’ve been judging our Boundaries by “A gardener trimming large Palm Trees” (25 Gemini) – a True Boundary has been one that looked presentable to polite company.

Now we’ll get to Play with them instead, and if we get bored with them, we’ll just pop it or send it away, and blow another one.  One of the implications of wearing Boundaries like hats, is that we could end up pretty Vulnerable.  How do we stay Safe?  One way is to recognize that our Core Identity is actually neither Ego nor Matter, but Energy.  I’ve seen kids using the Wind to blow hula hoop-size soap bubbles.  They’re as big as the kids, they take on all manner of shapes, and they can be pretty durable.  Identifying ourselves as indestructible and infinitely flexible Energy Fields is a big step toward 5D.

 

The Stellium at 9-10 Capricorn in the Orcas-Station chart Initiates six Cycles.

Capricorn 8, “In a Sun-lit home Domesticated Birds sing joyously” is where the 12 September (4pm PDT) Initiation of BZ509 (Transcendence, 12 years) by Hylonome (Self-Sovereignty, 128 years) occurs.  This would be a Cycle of about 13-14 years.  It’s easy to imagine ourselves Singing Joyously in Sunshine after we’ve Transcended all Obstacles to our Self-Sovereignty, though the Domestication is worrisome.

Domesticated Self-Sovereignty is a bit of an oxymoron, even if we may not want to be feral.  Perhaps we can think of the Birds as “Tame” instead.  If we’re living Collaboratively with Nature, we’d all be Tame to one another.

Three Cycles Initiate in 9 Capricorn, “An Angel carrying a Harp.”  That’s a Symbol we can accept without much argument.  These three are…

  • The 5 December (12am PST) Initiation of BZ509 (Transcendence, 12 years) by Saturn (The Most Important Thing, 28 years), starting a new 15-16 year Cycle.  This bodes well; the next 15-16 years could be difficult, so if Angels will be facilitating our Attention to Transcendence, sign me up.
  • The 6 December (9pm PST) Initiation of asteroid Karma (Self-Sabotaging Habits, 4.1 years) by BZ509 (Transcendence, 12 years), a 5-6 year Cycle.  Again, no objection at all to Angels helping me Transcend my Karma, even if it’s only for half a decade.
  • The 7 December (3am PST) Initiation of Karma by Saturn (The Most Important Thing), also a Cycle of about five years.  And I don’t mind if The Most Important Thing is Attending to my Karma (what else is new?) when I have Angels helping out!

Capricorn 10, “An Albatross feeding from the hand of a sailor,” is the home of the 11 December (7am PST) Initiation of Karma by Hylonome (Self-Sovereignty), a five-year Cycle.  Another Tame Bird, this one helping us blow away Karmic impediments to our Liberation.

We don’t incur the last of our six Cycles until 25 December (11am PST), at 11 Capricorn, “A large group of Pheasant on a private estate.  It’s the Initiation of Saturn by Hylonome, at about 35 years the longest Cycle of the bunch.  Birds again, not Domesticated, but unless the private estate is a hunting club, Living in relative Safety.  The Cycle is about The Most Important Thing being Transcending Codependence.  It wouldn’t hurt us a bit to Transcend the perceived need for private estates and return to the Commons.

A couple of notes that may be of interest to some folks, on Sodom and ‘Oumuamua…

https://www.universetoday.com/140752/a-meteor-may-have-exploded-in-the-air-3700-years-ago-obliterating-communities-near-the-dead-sea/

https://arstechnica.com/science/2018/11/nailing-down-the-nature-of-oumuamua-its-probably-a-comet-but/

 

Initiations are important because they signify a Change in their portion of the Zeitgeist.  They’re particularly relevant to Projects we may be Beginning.

For example, today’s Initiation of Mars (Action) by Neptune (Trance).  The Mars-Neptune segment of the Zeitgeist is about how our Actions coordinate with our Spirituality and with our Culture (both of which are Neptunian), and how we Act out potential Conflicts between our Spirituality and our Culture’s Expectations.  Mars-Neptune is a relatively short Cycle, renewing every couple of years.

An Initiation means we’re Beginning a New Cycle.  By then the Old Cycle is in tatters, as the last third or so of any Cycle is theoretically its Destructuring.  Which doesn’t mean that there aren’t people and institutions with deep investments in the Old Cycle.  The Dead Cycle began January 2017 in 10 Pisces, “An aviator flies on through ground-obscuring clouds.”  That certainly seems to apply well to the person who’s been piloting the US for just about that period of time, and how their Actions have reflected their Spirituality (Narcissism) and demeaned their Culture’s Expectations (Leadership).

So it may be good news that we’re in for a Change.  The New Cycle is about “A lady wrapped in a large stole of Fox fur” (14 Pisces), which we’d edit somewhat as “A lady wrapped in fur stolen from a large Fox.”  A denizen of the 1% apparently, and perhaps another indication of how Actions reflect Spirituality (Materialism) and Cultural Expectations (Consumption).  But then, perhaps the Consumerism will be so Conspicuous that people finally stop worshiping Wealth like it was Royalty.

This Cycle runs through mid-June 2020, and the next one begins at 21 Pisces, “Under the watchful and kind eyes of a Chinese servant, a girl fondles a little white Lamb.”  Isn’t that Explosive!  These Sabian Symbols were Channeled in the 1930s by a psychic in Los Angeles. so the Chinese servant is historically plausible.  And perhaps they thought of “fondling” a little differently than we would in the #MeToo era.  At any rate, the Symbol suggests that our shortcomings in Respect for All Beings may be Challenged as we enter the Digital Age.  Not that stealing fur from a Fox is any better than feeling up a Lamb.  And who knows, maybe it means that crotch-grabbers will finally get their due.

For now, how will we adapt to coordinating our Actions, Spirituality, and Culture around stolen Fur?  Certainly there are implications about Conservation that we can pursue, both as local efforts to Conserve and Restore Nature, and as Resistance to our Narcissist in Chief’s wholesale land and seabed gimmes to the oil and coal industries.  As the World Changes from a blind aviator to a naked Fox, the US Congress is Changing from the Party of Avarice to the Party of Wannabe Avarice.  Maybe the Angry Freshpersons will expose and embarrass the Wannabe Avarice elements of the old Party and Change it.  We can hope.

Here’s how our friend the Sun is celebrating our Wow Uranus-Square-Nodes New Moon and Mercury-Chiron-Orcus Stations event…

…by apparently splitting in half down the middle!  The root-beer-colored area is the Sun’s normal Magnetic-Sphere Boundaries or Corona.  Many efforts to embrace Nuclear Fusion for generating electricity involve containing the 25-million °F Nuclear soup in a “Magnetic Bottle.”  The Sun’s Light and Heat and Power are Electromagnetic, and so are the Energies which hold it Condensed into a ball rather than Exploding all over the place.

The darker area in the picture is a “Coronal Hole” – a rip in the fabric of the Sun’s Magnetic Bottle.  A Coronal Hole Allows Energy to escape from the Sun’s normally-self-possessed Center, spewing “Solar Wind,” a stream of electromagnetic particles, out like a firehose at an average of 500 km/sec – over 100,000 mph.  This particular Coronal Hole is pointing right at Earth, and its Solar Wind is expected to arrive this weekend.  While Solar Wind can cause severe Disruption of Communication and Destruction of Electronic Memory, the most common result looks something like this…

This Phoenix-shaped Aurora appeared over Norway last month, on 11/11, when the Hole pointed our way.  By “Coincidence,” 11 November is also when a mysterious earthquake-like Energy of unknown source shook our Home Planet…

“We have been exploring the possibilities that are in front of humanity at this time, and we can see how many choices you have to move to a better feeling timeline.  We see that the current state of affairs on planet Earth is actually urging you to choose one of those better feeling timelines.  But the way to access those timelines is not to point out what is wrong with your current state of affairs on Earth.

“We encourage you to feel what you feel, but you don’t need to keep pointing out how bad things are, and it actually is not serving you to do so.  The solution to the problems of your modern society is always to go within, and the way that you access that timeline that you want to be on is to harmonize with it.  Now, what we are telling you right now is that you are not as far away from a much better feeling timeline than you might think.

“Humanity is making tremendous strides forward, and those tremendous strides are the result of everything that you see in your world that is unfair, that is downright wrong.  It is all there to act as a catalyst for each of you to get within and to find what it is that you want.  Now, we are speaking especially to those of you who are awakened, because you know how to do this.

“You knew the moment you realized that you could create your reality that a better world was possible.  You knew that you didn’t need to rely on politicians, governments, banks, or corporations to change.  When you first had that knowing, you got very excited, and you thought you would see change sooner than later.  And now here you are, and some of you have been at this for decades, which is why we want to assure you that you are close to those timelines.

“You have the support from your fellow humans.  You have the support energetically.  You have the support from those like us in the higher realms, and you have more support than you ever have.  So don’t give up hope.  Go within and find that vibration, and you will see the changes that you want to see in the world around you.”

Or yesterday when John Perkins wrote…

“When Dr. David Dao was dragged off a United Express Flight by police officers from Chicago’s O’Hare airport on April 9, 2017, the ensuing outcry resulted in policy changes at major airlines.  When Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi was murdered, the highly split US Senate came together and voted for the first time in U.S. history to advance a bill to withdraw military forces from an unauthorized war (in Yemen) using the War Powers Resolution Act.  The November 27, 2018 Senate vote, a stunning 63 to 37 bi-partisan action, delivered an historic rebuke to Saudi Arabia and President Trump.

“These two stories are among the many examples of actions that trigger demands for change…”

John goes on to talk about the decline of Predatory or Death Capitalism (maximizing profits is the only goal) and the rise of Life Capitalism…

“This has led to an economic system that is failing us, the Death Economy I often describe in these blogs.  It is based on the myth – the perception – that this aberration is in fact capitalism and something we must accept as ‘just the way it is.’

“The Seattle event was one of many where I hear people breathe a collective sigh of relief when speakers proclaim something along the lines of: ‘This is not just the way it is; we can transition to a Life Economy.’  History attests to the fact that their optimism is well-founded.  Changes in perception trigger changes in the realities of human institutions, laws, and life-styles…”

The 6 December Mercury Station (1:30 pm PST, 28 Sagittarius) and the 9 December Chiron Station (12am PST, 28 Pisces) share the same basic chart as the Uranus-Nodes T-Square in the previous post.  Which leaves two wild cards in our 1-10 December Time Province: the 7 December New Moon (12:30 am PST, 16 Sagittarius) and the 10 December Orcus Station (4am PST, 12 Virgo).

All of which kind of leaves dwarf planet Orcus calling the shots here.  Orcus is about Making and Breaking Oaths.  Most of us would probably habitually recoil at the idea of Breaking an Oath – after all, can we be Trusted to keep our Promises, or not?  Not is a cardinal sin in Patriarchal Society.  But remember that Uranus (Soul) is Squaring the Nodes (our Lifetime Path), and one of our Interpretations of Uranus is Yintegrity.

Yangtegrity means that we do what we said we were going to do.  Yintegrity means that we do what we Intuitively Feel like doing, moment to moment.  To Live Yintegrity in a Yangtegrity World we’ll probably need to minimize our Commitments, Renegotiate often, and Make Amends when Renegotiation isn’t possible and the Relationship is worth keeping.

But once we crawl out from under the Patriarchal thumb (ie, when we move to 5D), we’ll all do Yintegrity.  It’s hard to conceive of that working out smoothly because our Dualistic minds still think in Patriarchal terms.  When everyone runs their Life from Multidimensional Intuition instead of Dualistic Intellect, no worries; we’ll all be in the Flow and everything will mesh smoothly.  Not Imaginable?  Better start Suspending Disbelief if you aspire to a Collaborative, Cooperative, Non-Hierarchical Life.

Suspending Disbelief is an important Skill for Allowing Growth in Consciousness.  Practice it frequently.  It’s also important for Letting Go of Judgments and Achieving Unconditional Respect for All Things.  Love fades when Judgment replaces Curiosity, and Love Is All There Is – the rest is Deception and Illusion.

What’s an Orc in Tolkien’s World, after all?  It’s hardly a knight in shining armor or a beautiful princess.  These Orcean Oaths, especially the ones we’ve Forgotten, are the roots of our Limiting Beliefs.  And as we pointed out in the last post, it’s not that the Universe is Limited, it’s that The Emotions We Don’t Want to Feel Limit our Experience of the UniverseOaths make Ogres out of us, because we end up Valuing Loyalty to an Abstraction more than we Value Trusting our own Heart.  Which is a serious Self-Abandonment.

All of which is why we talk more about Breaking Oaths than Making them, especially those Oaths we’ve Forgotten we made and which have morphed over many Lifetimes into Limiting Beliefs that we mistake for the Limits of Hardcopy Reality.  And the Oaths that our Ancestors made which have morphed over many Generations into Limiting Beliefs that we Confuse with the Edges of Reality.

Think back to your first hearing of the Icarus Myth.  Did it make you recall your Oath not to try to Fly?  Think about when and why you made such an Oath.  Icarians live ten years longer than folks in the US.  Why?

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/worldviews/wp/2012/10/25/a-greek-islands-secrets-to-long-life-in-11-bullet-points/

Sounds like elements of Yintegrity, doesn’t it.

If you recall the definition of Held Emotions (Emotions you’d rather Die than Feel, characteristic of the South Node), you know why Opening Up to them requires an Ego Death – because it’s not about “I’d rather Die than Feel that,” it’s about “I’d rather Die than Feel that.”  It’s the Ego that Dies, but the Ego can fight harder than the Body to Avoid Death, because the Ego usually deludes itself into thinking that it is the Body – and Soul.  Which is Healthy, from the psychological Perspective, especially if your psychology has taken Oaths to Support the Patriarchy.

The Orcus Station chart carries this through par excellence, as an Opposition between Stationary Orcus and Neptune (Confusion) is T-Squared (Challenged) by asteroid Nemesis (Ego Death).  As our Chief Asteroid Officer used to say, “You can’t make this stuff up!”  But the chart, despite the T-Square, is about as Charmed as a chart could be…

The T-Square is not only a Diamond Square (Self-Resolving Challenge), but a corner of a Grand Trine (Dumb-Luck Blessings), and the chart is perfectly Symmetrical (Balanced, Flowing Smoothly).  So if you haven’t already Learned to at least Recognize and Allow your Ego Deaths, if not Embrace them as the Growth Portals that they really are, this is your Golden Opportunity.  The Universe is feeding you the Lesson with a Silver Spoon.

Meanwhile, the Strongest feature of the New Moon chart…

…is a Mjölnir (Epiphany) to the North Node (our Lifetime Mission).  A Mjölnir (yellow-orange lines) occurs when a third planet (here North Node) sits at the Far Midpoint between two planets that are Square to one another (here the New Moon and Mars-Neptune).  The third planet makes Trioctiles (Positive Rebalancing) to the ends of the Square, producing Insights that are Valuable to our Growth.

It is a remarkable feature of astrology that you can read a chart in completely different ways and get the same interpretation.  It’s the Epiphany/Mjölnir to the North Node that leads us to interpret this New Moon as focused on our Lifetime Mission.  Stephanie Austin comes to a very similar conclusion because the New Moon is in Sagittarius, which she interprets as “Meaning and Purpose.”  Her reading for this New Moon goes into great detail about just that, and I highly recommend it as an Easy Path to Epiphanies about your own Lifetime Mission.

Find an invitation to her biweekly readings at…

She puts an earlier example on her invitation page, so you’ll have to subscribe to get the latest edition, but it’s more than worth the modest expense, and I find her information to be very complementary with mine, as we each go into detail about different subtopics of What’s Happening.

Those are the major emphases of these charts, but there are a number of important sub-themes.  For instance, in the New-Moon chart…

  • The 4 December (2pm PST) Initiation of Pallas (Boundaries) by Aletheia (Truth) at 13 Libra, “Children blowing soap bubbles.”
  • The 7 December (7am PST) Initiation of Mars (Action) by Neptune (Trance) in 14 Pisces, “A lady wrapped in a large stole of Fox fur.”

And in the Orcus-Station chart…

  • The rather remarkable convergence of asteroid BZ509 (Transcendence), Saturn (The Most Important Thing), asteroid Karma (Held Emotions), and dwarf planet Hylonome (Self-Sovereignty) in 9-10 Capricorn, which will Initiation six New Cycles.

We’ll talk about all these and more as the week wears on.  If any of these looks important to you, or falls on a natal planet of yours, and I forget or run out of time to include them, remind me, and I’ll correct my omission.

December 3, 2018

When trying to grok something that’s happening, you want to look for Exact Events, to the Arcminute or at least within one Degree, like both Uranus and the Nodes being at 29:06 on 2 December.  For further grokking the Event, let’s back off to 3-Degree Sensitivity – here’s the Uranus-Nodes T-Square on that Time Scale…

Venus (Values) steps in to complete the Grand Cross, and South Node is joined by Vesta (Beliefs) and Klotho (Beginnings).  Since Hupers are Real rather than Dual, they’re filled with Contradictions, and Healthily so.  So there’s no requirement that anyone’s Values and our Beliefs Align with one another.  But if we aim to “Ascend” to a more Collaborative Life, it will behoove us to Align both with our Mission and our Soul – and this Event provides exactly that Opportunity.

We could say that we’re Beginning (Klotho) to Recognize (Mercury Stationary in a Quincunx Bridge across the Soul-Values Opposition) that our Limiting Beliefs (Vesta) have descended from our Held Emotions (South Node) – it’s not that the World is Limited, it’s that The Emotions We Don’t Want to Feel Limit our Experience of the World.  Reading that relative to my Experience of 2 December, I Realize that I Avoid Embarrassment at all costs, and the Avoidance helps to Separate me from What I Want.  Of course it’s never that simple, but nevertheless that is a new Insight.

Chiron (Pain/Miracle), which is Stationary (Strong), makes a Trine Bridge (Easy Path) across the Nodal Axis, suggesting that we may be able to Poor-Sweetheart our Resistance to Growth.  For me that might be “You Poor Sweetheart, you don’t like to be Embarrassed, do you.”

For Newbies or Reminders, see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/poor-sweetheart/ for more information about Poor-Sweethearting.

Stationary Mercury (Awareness), joined by Trust (Eurydike), also makes a Trine Bridge across the Nodal Opposition, so another Easy Path to Growth in this Timeline is through Trusting our Observations.  So even though my Skeptic is saying, “So what, everybody hates Embarrassment,” I need to Reject that Judgment and Change the Subject.  Changing the Subject is part of making a Poor-Sweetheart Create Miracles.

In fact, Chiron and Mercury-Eurydike are two corners of a Grand Trine (Dumb-Luck Blessings) with the North Node (our Mission in the Lifetime), making a Kite to Klotho-Vesta-South Node, indicating that we very much have the Wind at our Back here.  The Caution is that we don’t want to try to pin it down to concisely, as we’ll go much farther with Questions (or PIAVAs) than Answers (the three Quincunx Bridges).

The Soul-Values (Uranus-Venus) Duality gets Assistance (Trine Bridge) from a Strong Response to our Survival Instincts (Pholus-Quaoar).  However, there’s a Challenging Relationship between our Poor-Sweethearting (Chiron) and our Survival Instincts (Pholus-Quaoar).  We can help Resolve that potential Challenge by Wondering how our Survival Instincts might be Related to our Lifetime Mission – should we be more Cautious, or more Fearless, about our Survival?  That’s a Question.  You don’t want to Answer it (Chiron-Square-Pholus/Quaoar-Quincunx-North Node-Trine-Chiron Tricolor).

While this astroevent is in effect, if you encounter a situation where you aren’t sure whether to take a Risk or seek Security, let it remain an Unanswered Question.  Don’t Answer with your Dualistic Mind; see if you can find a way to let your Body or your Passions or your Spirit Respond Intuitively or Impulsively at the last minute.  The Quincunx is the ultimate PIAVA Angle in astrology.  If you stay within your Conceptual Cage, you’ll just Create more Limiting Beliefs instead of more Growth.

See https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/ if you aren’t absolutely certain what we mean by PIAVA.

Remember that Confusion is the first stage of Growth.
