Trust III

June 24, 2019

Here’s the Eurydike Station chart…

First thing we notice is the red triangle (T-Square), symbolic of Challenge.  Its focus is an astrological symbol for Codependence (dwarf planet Hylonome, the Y-on-a-unicycle), which means that our Identity is Entangled with another Entity.  The basic difference between Empathy and Codependence is that an Empath Knows that the Experienced Emotions are not their own; a Codependent does not.  Many Empaths are Unable, Unwilling, or Untrained to shake off the Emotions of others, but that’s a separate – and complex – issue.

The base of the triangle contradistinguishes (Opposes) the symbol for Boundaries (asteroid Pallas, a diamond on a cross) with the symbol for Ending TimeLines (asteroid Atropos).  A TimeLine can be a Lifetime, any episode of one’s Life, a particular Habit that plays a prominent role in one’s Life for a period of time, or any other interaction between Time and Life.  So this T-Square comes down to a Challenge to Consciously Create New Kinds of Boundaries that Eliminate Unproductive Codependence.

Classic examples – Learning to Love while Acknowledging and Celebrating Difference; Holding a Job without Identifying with its Role or Allowing it to Define our Security; Trusting our Resilience to Survive in almost any Circumstances; The Ability to stick to a Budget when our Expenditures Define Who We Are.

When we Believe that we’re someone that we aren’t, we’re usually Confused about our Values, because we are trying to Live from two different Hearts.  We can’t really Trust ourself, because we aren’t always Acting to our own Benefit.  In Supporting someone else’s Values, we can Betray our own, Abandoning ourself.  We have to Remediate this Consciously, because if we do it Unconsciously (by Blaming the Other and Leaving the Relationship for instance), we Learn nothing and will Repeat the Self-Abandonment.

This interlude of focus on Trust provides an Opportunity for becoming Conscious of our Codependence and taking steps to Remedy it.  Notice that the Stationary Eurydike connects the two ends of the base of the T-Square, but with blue lines (a Trine Bridge).  Blue lines symbolize Grace, indicating that Trust is an alternative to Codependence here.  Trusting that the Person or Job or other Entity or Object that we’re Codependent with has our own interests at heart?  I don’t think so.  I think it would be more about Trusting that we can Survive on our own, without Sacrificing our Identity to an Outside Object, or at least to the Outside Object that’s Lit Up for you now.

Codependence/Hylonome also connects the two ends of the long red line that is a Contradistinction (Opposition) between the symbol for Abuse and Privilege (dwarf planet Nessus, the N-on-a-Unicycle) and Making or Breaking Oaths (dwarf planet Orcus).  We can read this as Forgiving our Codependence when it Protects us from Abuse, and that may be relevant in some cases.  But in the context of Growing Consciousness, it’s more likely to be about Becoming Aware of situations, through our Codependence, that Allow us to identify a source of Oaths we’ve made in the past which Limit us today.

For instance, if I have a Codependent Relationship with Money, did I make a Decision sometime in the past never to appear Poor?  If so, was that Decision based on Pride?  On the obvious correlation between Poverty and Powerlessness?  How old was I when I made such a Decision?  What else was going on at the time in my Family of Origin?  Was a Past or Parallel Life involved?

The long green lines (Quincunxes, connecting planets five Signs apart) are all about Curiosity, especially Curiosity of the sort that Inspires genuine Interest, not to “Figure It Out,” but to Fully Appreciate its apparent Uniqueness and Difference.  There are three such Questions, each relating to a short green line signifying Pattern-Breaking (Unxes, connecting planets one Sign apart)

  • I Wonder (Quincunx) which Oaths (Orcus) I can Trust (Eurydike) to Reveal (Unx) the sources of my Codependence (Hylonome) so I can Let it Go.
  • I Wonder how I might modify my Boundaries (Pallas) in order to Break my Habit (Unx) of Trusting (Eurydike) my Privilege (Nessus).
  • I Wonder what Oaths (Orcus) I can Revert (Atropos) to curtail (Unx) Abuse (Nessus).

Lots to Wonder about, and a few days off to Indulge in Wondering, as our next major astroevent isn’t till the 2 July New Moon.  However, the New Moon is in the same 11th Degree as the Eurydike Station, so these same planets are involved, and many of the same Angles.  So we’ll be continuing to work with these issues.

For instance, the New Moon Opposes Hylonome/Codependence and T-Squares Pallas/Boundaries.  Moira/Choice has moved into position to create a Yin Gate with its Opposition to Eurydike/Trust, indicating a Mysterious Non-Dual Relationship between Choice and Trust.  We’ll map all this out soon.

Trust II

June 24, 2019

Before we look at the Eurydike Station chart, let’s look at a possible strategy you can use if and when Scarcity rears up.  Our tools are described in…

https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2015/11/02/piavac/

in case you need to read or re-read about Tapping and Theta.

We’ll start with Tapping…

“Even though I’m in Scarcity about … , I deeply and completely Love and Accept myself…”

You might be in Scarcity about anything that you Desire.  If you feel Panicked about it (it is after all Scare-City), add some Kegels.  You may need to repeat the Tapping with the same or a different intro phrase, if your Emotions are Lit Up.  Once you’re Grounded and relatively Composed, switch to Theta…

“God/Goddess, Creator of All That Is, I Command Abundance about … .  It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done.  Thank you, God/Goddess!”  (Breathe)  “Show me!”

If needed you can add a Time-Line, such as “…Abundance about… Before …”

If your Insight, in whatever way it usually works, Shows you that all is well, Fantastic!  You may See it, Feel it, Hear it, just get a Gut Feel, etc.  Now your best plan would be to Change the Subject.

If you don’t get a Clear Picture that What You Want is on the truck heading your way, then Ask what’s holding it back.  You may get a sense of Hesitation while you’re It-Is-Doneing, or you may have to Ask for Clarity if you aren’t Sure what the holdup is.

Then you would go back to Tapping…

“Even though I’m in Resistance about … , I deeply and completely Love and Accept myself…”

or…

“Even though I’m Unsure why I seem to be in Resistance to … , I deeply and completely Love and Accept myself…”

If you get any Resolution through Tapping, you can return to Theta to again Command What You Want.  The Command itself may or may not Change as you Explore it.  You could also Tap and Theta about Trust, and what Inhibits you from Trusting.

Trust I

June 24, 2019

It’s been an Intense week, and now we’re waking up with a bit of a hangover.  You may be facing a Pack of Yes-Buts, or just Ruing Mondays.  We’ve seen Abundance and Confusion modeled for us, and now we may be Confused about all of it.

Know that the Abundance that’s been suggested may be preceded by a Need to Let Go of any Blocks that have Prevented you from Enjoying Abundance in the Past.  So if you Encounter Scarcity, know that it’s Temporary unless you Grasp It again.  I’ll flesh out a Recommendation later today for dealing with Scarcity in the current environment.  Remember that Karma is Dead, but in many cases it’s all we know, so when it docks we’re more than happy to jump aboard because we unknowingly Prefer Familiarity to Liberation – especially when Confusion Is Afoot.

For now though, the Dominant Theme is Trust, as the astrological symbol for Assurance (asteroid Eurydike) is at peak Strength (Stationary until 9:30 pm PDT 24 June).  While the symbols for Abundance were Strong and Beneficial last week, they also signified that your Resistance could be Tested.  What, Resistance?  Who would Resist Abundance?  Well, how much consistent Abundance have you Enjoyed thus far in this Lifetime?  If it hasn’t been Overwhelmingly Fabulous, then you have Resistance, and you may well have Opportunities to Experience it or even Re-Experience its Origins.

If you do, Recognize that no one else is to Blame for it.  Someone else might be Blameworthy for its Origin, but now it’s completely up to you to Reframe it as your Resistance, and Acknowledge and Embrace your Emotions around it.  I have to run an errand, but when I return we’ll Explore this Trust thing more fully.

Cancer Solstice 2

June 21, 2019

Forgot to include the Neptune Station chart…

and before I forget, here’s the Solstice chart.  Ignore the blue lines with the green Xs on them – they should have been green and I didn’t have time to redraw the chart…

The symbol for Starting a New Timeline (asteroid Klotho) indicates our major Challenge (T-Square focus), with Judgment (asteroid Hopi) Limiting our Willingness and Ability to Embrace Growth in Consciousness through Loving our Physical Self just as it is (Hopi Opposite Juno-Sappho-Varuna in the base of the T-Square).  The symbol for Ending Unproductive Old Timelines (asteroid Lachesis) is the other, lesser Challenge, and it’s closely related to the first one (Klotho makes a Trine Bridge across the Lachesis Opposition).

Ending any Unproductive Old Timelines in particular?  Yes, indeed, they’re well Identified (the planets Opposite Lachesis)

  • Impediments to Embodying our Unique Genius (dwarf planet Ixion), most likely taking the form of Memories of being Punished for doing so as a Child – likely one of those Held Emotions.
  • Suppressing our Survival Instincts (dwarf planet Quaoar).  Just because we’re Paranoid doesn’t mean they aren’t out to Get us.  Yes, by all means Tap Out and Kegel your Fear into Power, but just because you feel good afterward doesn’t mean you can Forget what you were Afraid of.  They’re still trying to Destroy your Planet, whether you’re Scared or not.  And now that you Feel Power, what will you do with it?
  • Recycle more?  Hell no.  That’s Their Effort to make you Feel like their Destruction is all your fault.  You can take more Responsibility (dwarf planet Pholus) if you want, but only do it you can Really make an Impact.  If your Guides tell you to start an NGO that will meaningfully Stop the Destruction, go for it.  If your Guides tell you to Immolate yourself atop a mountain of plastic in Times Square, go for it.  These won’t be the course for most of us, however, or we probably already would have done it.
  • Stop Giving Them your Power.  The more you Focus on Them – those who are actively working to deposit your Planet into their already-bloated bank accounts – the more Power you Give Them.  Focus on You.  Do I mean you should Recycle more?  Hell no.  Take Full Responsibility (dwarf planet Pholus) for your own Future by Clearing your Beliefs that it depends on anyone or anything else but You.  We’ll talk more about this in a minute.
  • Accept that this will be Transcendent (asteroid Bee-Zed).  You won’t Recognize yourself afterward, and that’s the whole idea.  It should be blatantly obvious that our present Efforts to “Save the Planet” are failing miserably.  So we need to Become Someone Else in order to have an Impact.  Ego Deaths may not be pleasant, but they’re more pleasant than Immolating yourself atop a mountain of plastic.  At the very least, Ego Deaths usually smell better.

Okay, you’ve heard this before – What You Resist, Persists.  You may have heard this one before too – Don’t waste your time trying to Change the way things are, start a Whole New Ballgame that will make the Old One Obsolete.  That may have been Bucky Fuller who said that (more or less), I’m not sure.  Another version – When the Personality Fragments, the only thing you can do is Restore the Wholeness of the Personality – anything else you try to do, you’ll just make it worse.  That was Jack Rosenberg.

Fear and Anxiety are Emotions.  The Content of our Thoughts when we’re in Fear or Anxiety are pure Bullshit, and we just Love to Eat it by Believing that those Thoughts hold Water.  No Blame, I do it all the time!  Fear and Anxiety are examples of the Fragmentation of the Personality.  We have to make our Lifetime First Priority Detecting Fear and Anxiety as early as we can, so we can take steps to Ignore the Thoughts that arise under their watch.

Let’s say we succeed in Tapping Out Fear of Scarcity, and now Feel Great, and Decide to Enjoy Fasting.  But we can still Starve to Death, so it Behooves us to take steps to improve our Food Resilience, but not while we’re in Fear about it.  Now, we can Blame the Antichrist and the other Predatory Capitalists for elbowing out of the lunchroom, but that won’t help anybody or anything.  We need to Accept Reality exactly as it is; we can Change Nothing till we do that.  Then we can Act to Love Ourself.

Waiting for the Predatory Capitalists to see the World through our eyes, or cramming it down their throats, is never going to work.  It was Render unto Caesar, nor Render Caesar.  If we want to Live in a Collaborative World, we have to Create it.  If we don’t Believe that’s Possible, we have to Change that Belief.  All of the Changes we need to make are within ourself.  Yes, the World will split into two (or more) separate Worlds.  It’s not about earthquakes or asteroid collisions, it’s not about Convincing anyone else about anything, it’s about Multidimensionality.  Not Conceivable?

Well, your Ancestors Live on in their own World.  It’s Parallel to yours.  It’s on the same Planet.  You actually know that, if you’re able to admit it to yourself.  And we know that All There Is Is Now, so we know that all of our Past Lives are actually Parallel Lives, and many of them are on this Planet.  The only thing we have to do, is Get Used to It.

Cancer Solstice 1

June 21, 2019

The way we look at it, the recent Stations of Makemake (symbol of Manifestation) and Veritas (symbol of Truth) will have a big Influence on the coming several months because their Energies were peaking at (and therefore heavily impacted) the Full Moon, and a New or Full Moon’s Energies influences the following several weeks, which includes the Solstice, which in turn impacts the following three to six months.  I could summarize what that Influence will be about, but it would be better if you re-read the Rebirth Full Moon series, and notice what pops out at you.  We will all take different portions of the Energies to the bank with us.

If we were to reduce all that to one sentence, though, I’d say that the primary Energy has probably Triggered and may continue to Trigger our Scarcity Issues and raise the danger that we’ll Act on them and Create more Scarcity.  The only thing we can Manifest from a State of Fear is more Fear.  In spite of many Challenges, the overall Energies were very Beneficial, so we have to read those Energies as Opportunities to Let Go of Our Scarcity Karma and Make Room for Greater Abundance in our Future.  We could Experience Scarcity or Abundance of Anything – Money, Security, Affection, Attention, Food, Happiness, you name it.

But the Biggest Influence on the Cancer Solstice will be the Station of Neptune shortly before the Solstice itself.  Neptune symbolizes Material Confusion and Spiritual Clarity, so as we’ve been wrestling with our Scarcity we’ve probably found it Confusing.  Part of us has likely been more than Willing to Continue to Operate Abundantly (Abundance means Having Enough to Share), while there has probably been another Voice warning us that our Largesse may be followed by a bill we’ll have Difficulty paying.  But neither Voice has been loud enough to Dominate.  Hence Confusion, as one part of us Acts one way and another part Acts differently, and we aren’t quite sure just Who We Are.

The Neptune Station occurs at 7:30 am PDT in 19 Pisces, and the Cancer Solstice at 9am PDT, in by definition 0:00 of Cancer.  That puts the Solstice Sun 101 Degrees ahead of Neptune, a Waxing Biseptile.  The Septile series of Angles are all about Timing, and the Biseptile is about the Timing of Either/Or Decisions.  Many of us tend to see Reality as a series of Snapshots rather than a Moving Picture, so unless some barker is screaming at us that their unprecedented Bargain expires in an hour, we may not think much about Timing.

But Timing is critical around Everything.  If our favorite Psychic tells us we’ll meet our Soulmate or our Benefactor in the Produce Department at Whole Foods, will we be present enough to inquire When?  What if they left three minutes before we got there, or we wander off to Frozen Foods two minutes before they arrive?  Would we even Ask, Do you mean this year?  Or this Lifetime?  Seven (Septile) is a lucky number for a good reason – it’s about being in the Right Place at the Right Time.

The Neptune Station itself presents a Challenge (the focus of a T-Square) to Distinguish between our Longstanding Desires (Jupiter in Sagittarius) and our Fleeting Intuitions (Asbolus in Gemini).  But the more Profound Challenge in the Neptune-Station chart is a Karmic one, a Challenge to Discern the Truth (T-Square focused on asteroid Aletheia) about our Karma and our Mission (South and North Nodes, aka the Dragon’s Tail and Head).  Our Karma or Held Emotions are marked as The Most Important Thing (South Node Conjunct Saturn), and our Mission is marked as Requiring Ego Death (North Node Conjunct asteroid Nemesis).

That merits repeating…

The Biggest Influence on the Cancer Solstice will be the Station of Neptune shortly before the Solstice itself.  This Neptune Station Challenges us to Distinguish between our Longstanding Desires and our Fleeting Intuitions, and to Trust our Intuitions about our Longstanding Desires.  But the more Profound Challenge in the Neptune-Station chart is a Karmic one, a Challenge to Discern the Truth about our Karma and our Mission.  And our Intuitions about our Longstanding Desires will give us an excellent education on  the Truth about our Karma and our Mission (the two T-Squares are one Sign apart, which means it’s about Pattern-Breaking).  Our Karma or Held Emotions are marked as The Most Important Thing, and our Mission is marked as Requiring Ego Death.

That should actually be no Surprise, as the Essence of Karma is that it Requires Ego Death to Transcend.  It’s a little heavier than, say, Reverting a Peanut-Butter-for-Lunch Habit.  But this Message says that The Time Is Now.  The Boon in the Neptune-Station chart is that our Dualistic mind will benefit us (Grand Trine in Air), particularly our Attention to our Longstanding Desires (Jupiter in Sagittarius).

Our interpretation of Jupiter in Sagittarius as our “Longstanding Desires” is a little indirect.  Jupiter symbolizes our Lust for Expansion, and our Desires certainly Expand us.  Of course our Resistance to our Desires makes it seem like they’ll Shrink us, but that’s just our Resistance.  Achieving a Desire puts us in that Empty place that Requires another Desire to replace the retired one, lest we Loose the Sense of Self that comes with a Directed Striving – which process is actually an Expansion.  it’s also a version of an Ego Death, but one that has an Easier Prognosis than those resulting from I’d Rather Die Than Feel That Again.

Sagittarius is about Letting Go.  It’s about Changes (Mutable) in our Spirituality (Fire).  Air and Fire Signs are related because mentality (Air) is the ladder to Spirit (Fire).  Our Consciousness Expands when we pry loose a bar in the Mental Birdcage that defines our Limitations.  Our Core Longstanding Desires are to Transcend those Limitations, but our Longstanding Desires as we perceive them ARE the bars in our Birdcage.  Yes, Neptune is about Confusion – need an example?

Suppose for instance we Crave Freedom from the Constraints of Limited Money.  We interpret that Desire as Wanting More Money.  But that’s not what Limits us.  What Limits us is The Belief that we Need More Money to Thrive.  That Belief is a bar in our Birdcage, a Mental-Emotional, probably Programmed, probably Karmic, Construct that Holds our Reality together.  Yes, Holds our Reality Together.  Contemplate Living without Money for a minute, and Feel all of your Structures crumbling around you.  The astrological symbol for the Glue that Holds Reality Together is the Moon, and sure ’nuff, the Moon is one corner of the Grand Trine (and Jupiter Kite) in the Neptune-Station chart.

So in Real Life, your Longstanding Desires are symbols for your Lust for Transcending your Limitations.  Now, that’s a Jungian Perspective, one that assumes the primary Drive in the Unconscious is the Urge to Wholeness, one that everyone who persists in reading this blog certainly has.  We don’t mean to imply that Everyone shares this primary Drive.  Others may be primarily Driven by, for instance, an Urge to Be Adulated, or an Urge to “drink tea, save animals, and nap,” as the tag on my Buddha Teabag suggests today.  We don’t want or need to project our Urge to Wholeness on anyone else, because that will only impede our Ascension.  In fact, trying to Influence or Judge anyone else’s Life in any way always impedes our own Ascension.

Rebirth Full Moon VI

June 19, 2019

In addition to the Energies we’ve already described for the Full Moon, the next few weeks will also carry the Energies of Manifestation (dwarf planet Makemake) and Truth (asteroid Veritas), because both of those Energies were Strong (Stationary) at the time of the Full Moon.  So we’ll continue to be Challenged to shift our thoughts and Anxiety about Scarcity, to Embracing the Memories and Imaginings about the Abundance we Want to Live in.

The chart of the Makemake Station itself features a number of Challenges that are really Boons, but only if we Recognize and Respond to the Challenge.  For instance, the Manifestation symbol (Makemake) is in Duality (Opposition) with the symbol for Despair and Miracles (dwarf planet Chiron).  Meaning that we could easily slip into Despair over our Scarcity if we weren’t Paying Attention to our Thoughts and Feelings, and so forgot to Poor Sweetheart ourself.  However, Abundance is actually pretty well assured here (Makemake makes a Diamond Star, or Self-Resolving Challenge) as long as we stay focused on What We Want.

This Abundance/Scarity-Despair/Miracles Axis (Makemake-Chiron) Dances with another very interesting Duality.  The second Axis pits our Willingness to Abort Unproductive Timelines (asteroid Lachesis) against (Opposition) our Need to Transcend our Fear that the Future will exceed our ability to Cope (dwarf planets Quaoar and Pholus, and asteroid Bee-Zed).  However, guess what?  The Challenge to Abort Unproductive Timelines (Lachesis T-Square) is also a Self-Resolving Challenge (Diamond Star)!

Here’s the chart…

In addition to that Grand Cross, there’s another red triangle or Big Challenge (T-Square), focused on yet another Challenge, which is the Merger (Conjunction) of the symbols for Belief (asteroid Vesta) and Soul (Uranus).  Of course if we’re not already Identifying Fully with the Descent of our Soul into our Body (Uranus in Taurus), it’s because our Beliefs Block it.  Try this sequence…

  • Tap Out “Even though I Believe that Souls and Bodies are Separate, I Deeply and Completely Love and Accept Myself.”  We know you Believe this because there are still parts of your Life that you want to Disavow, parts that you don’t Recognize as your Soul’s Curriculum for your Ego.  The purpose of Tapping is to Acknowledge the Truth so that your mind and Energy Body are on the same page.
  • Theta Healing, “God/Goddess, Creator of All That Is, I Command that I Lovingly and Gently, Rapidly and Completely Come to Believe that My Body and My Soul Are One.  It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done.  Thank You, God/Goddess!  Show Me!
  • Tap Out any Objections or Yes-Buts that you Feel, think of, or Are Shown.  For instance, “Even though I Fear All of the Life Events that My Ego Constantly Strives to Prevent, I Deeply and Completely Love and Accept Myself.”  You know, all those horrible things you see happening to Other People on television and YouTube, that your Ego Fears that your Soul might Ask you to Endure.
  • Repeat as necessary, with modification reflecting what you’ve Learned.

The basis (Base Opposition) for this Soul-Belief Challenge (Uranus-Vesta T-Square) is almost Funny.  It has the symbol for Respect for All Things (asteroid Hopi) on one end of the Duality, and the Merger (Conjunction) of the symbols for Choice (asteroid Moira) and Vitality (dwarf planet Varuna) on the other.  It kind of Laughs at our Failure to Notice that if Soul and Ego are One, then Why Would We Choose Self-Sabotage?  The Curricula that Frighten our Ego are designed to make it Realize that Merging with Soul is the only way out!  The Fear is a picture of our Resistance, not a picture of the Consequences.

We could try Tapping “Even though I tend to Believe the Contents of my Anxious Thoughts, I Deeply and Completely Love and Accept Myself” and “Even though I still haven’t Learned to Always Focus on What I Want instead of What I Fear, I Deeply and Completely Love and Accept Myself.”  But, Boon of Boons, this too is a Self-Resolving Challenge (Diamond Star)!

Remarkably, even though the Full Moon and the Makemake Station are in totally different Degrees, their charts have the same major components in them – Grand Cross, T-Square, Golden Rectangle.

We introduced the Golden (aka blue) Rectangle in the Rebirth Full Moon IV post.  This one postulates that our Scarcity-Despair / Abundance-Miracles Duality (Makemake Opposite Chiron) and our Choosing-Vitality / Loving-It-All Duality (Varuna-Moira Opposite Hopi) Complement one another well.  Which makes a lot of sense.  After all, any of the Four Horsemen here – Scarcity, Despair, Judgment, or Fateful Ill Health – are great clues for where we need to Let Go of Karma we’re Grasping.

Oh, but there’s one additional Big Deal in the Makemake Station chart – a Dumb-Luck Spiritual Blessing for us (Grand Trine in Fire) that Harmonizes Despair-Miracles (Chiron), Fate-Choice-Vitality (Moira-Varuna), and Sustenance-Resilience (dwarf planet Ceres) so well that we don’t even notice there are other alternatives.  Not only that, but if we add Respect-Judgment (Hopi), Scarcity-Abundance (Makemake) and Youthful Strength-Recklessness (the Fixed Star Mirfak) we end up with Two Cats in the Yard (a Grand Sextile) that makes Everything Easy…

In other words, when you’re completing your Visions and Feelings of Abundance, Resilience, Mutual Respect, Free Choice, and Youthful Vitality, don’t hesitate to add any Miracles that you need to make them all work together.

This Mirror is too relevant to pass up.  In the emailed 17 June Guardian Brexit Weekly Briefing

“In the Guardian, Fintan O’Toole says politicians’ talk of Britain’s ‘national humiliation’ is dangerous:

” ‘Yes, of course, the Brexit debacle has reduced Britain’s prestige around the world.  And the withdrawal agreement negotiated by Theresa May is indeed a miserable thing when compared with the glorious visions that preceded it.  But Britain has not been humiliated by the EU – the deal was shaped by May’s (and Arlene Foster’s) red lines.  Britain did not get what the Brexiters fantasised about, but it did get what it actually asked for.

” ‘That’s not humiliation.  But at its heart, Brexit depends on the idea that Britain cannot be an ordinary European country and, therefore, that equality within the EU is inherently humiliating.  Britain is humiliated by the EU because it expects to be superior.  But it [humiliation] is a dangerous word.  It may have no substance, but it has the power to harm.

” ‘It brings down with it an acid rain of corrosive emotions: the need, at all costs, not to lose face, the indulgence of self-pity, the demented idea that national pride can be restored only by the endurance of great pain.  It needs to be banished from the Brexit discourse.  Acknowledging reality is not humiliating.  Accepting that you have made a mistake is not humiliating.’ “

Let’s paraphrase this…

“Our Old Ego did not get what We fantasized about, but We did get what We actually Asked For, with all Our Thought-Prayers and Anxiety about What We Didn’t Want.  That’s not Humiliation.  But at its heart, Our Old Ego depends on the idea that We cannot be an Ordinary Person and, therefore, that Equality within Huperity is Inherently Humiliating.  We are Humiliated by our Ego Death because the Ego expects to be Superior.  But Humiliation is a dangerous word.  It may have no Substance, but it has the Power to Harm.

“It brings down with it an acid rain of Corrosive Emotions: the Need, at all costs, not to Lose Face, the Indulgence of Self-Pity, the Demented idea that Personal Pride can be Restored only by the Endurance of great Pain.  It needs to be Banished from the Ego Discourse.  Acknowledging Reality is not Humiliating.  Accepting that We have been Doing the Best We can – but now We’ve Learned to Do Better – is not Humiliating.”

Speaking of plastic (as we were recently), here’s a status report…

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2019/jun/17/recycled-plastic-america-global-crisis

https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2019/jun/17/recycling-plastic-wrong-guide

As we said, the solution to this is super simple – just prohibit the manufacture of Instant Landfill.  But of course since the government and the manufacturers have merged, that can’t be done, because the manufacturers would lose money, and that’s obviously far more important than, say, the Oceans.  In ten US states you pay a deposit for a glass bottle, and 80% are returned and recycled.

But we were in the middle of busily listing out the many Prominent Features of the 17 July Full Moon.  We only had one Big One left before we get to the Hidden Treasures.  Here’s the chart, by the way…

You can see the Full Moon’s red triangle (T-Square) and the big red box with the X in it (Grand Cross).

Next up is the big blue rectangle, which astrologers call a “Golden Rectangle” because it’s blue.  No, not really, it’s because the ratio of its short sides to its long sides is the Golden Angle, φ or Phi.  We use blue to indicated a Friendly Energy, so Golden turns out to be blue.  In a Golden Rectangle the two central diagonal Dichotomies (red lines or Oppositions) interact in a very Constructive way.

Fortunately, we’ve already talked about both Dichotomies, because one (Moon-Ixion vs. Sun-Chaos) is the Full Moon itself, and the other (Haumea-Veritas vs. Klotho-Eris) is half of the Grand Cross.  That’s the nature of Duality, isn’t it – it always ends up being Soandso versus Whosit, so Competition is assured.

In the previous posts we summarized the Full Moon as “we Succeed by Dismissing the ‘Shoulds’ that shout at us, and instead Embracing the Intuitions that are always Whispering sweet nothings in our ear,” and the other Dichotomy as “our Fear about having to Face something we’ve been Ignoring is juxtaposed against our Intuitive Excitement about an Impending Future Feeling very Close at hand.”

You can read that last paragraph a couple of time and let yourself Imagine how those two will meld, but I’ll choose “You have Intuitions about your Future, but they’re pretty quiet.  You also have a bundle of Anxieties about it, and they’re pretty loud.  Put some Effort into Deciding What You Really Want for yourself, and then Commit to spending a lot of time Focusing on How It Will Feel when that Happens.”  That’s probably enough.

Our first Hidden Treasure is only partly shown on the picture of the chart.  In the lower left you can see the symbol for our Sacred Mission, the headphones (North Node), which sits next to the symbol for Awareness and Communication (Mercury), the legless stick figure with pointy ears.  That’s fine so far, as it indicates an increasing Awareness of our Mission.  But what’s not drawn in is the symbol for Ego Death (asteroid Nemesis), which sits in the same place.

Now we’ve been preaching for a long time that we should all be Celebrating Ego Death, because it’s just a Molt, and its primary function is to eliminate our Limitations.  But I know, We’d Rather Die than Feel That Again!  Which is kinda the point, it’s just that the “We” is the Ego, so yes, Die away, K?  Feeling That Again Happens to Be Exactly How We Eliminate Our Limitations.  ‘Nuff said?

The other Hidden Treasure happens as we speak, as the symbol for Manifestation (dwarf planet Makemake) is very Strong (Stationary 2am PDT 18 June), abetted by Strength in the symbol for Truth (asteroid Veritas Stationary 1pm PDT 18 June).  This is very Easy to interpret – Don’t Fall for the Temptation to Dwell on What You Don’t Want.  Focus on What You Do Want Instead, and if you can Imagine yourself Feeling the Way You’re Going to Feel When You Do Get What You Want, You’re GoldenEvery Thought Is a Prayer, and All Prayers Are Answered.

While Attending to your own Desires is Bottom Line (It’s like Love – you have to do yourself first), this especially applies to the Future of the Planet.  Imagine yourself Feeling the Way You’re Going to Feel When You’re Living on a Planet Where Collaboration Has Replaced CompetitionWe’ll explain that in the next post.

Most of you will be reading this after the fact, but no worries – it’s Never Too Late.

Prominent Feature Number Four is easy.  Our Merger of Instinct and Genius (Moon-Ixion Conjunct) sits in front of the Galactic Center.  That means several things.  It means that everything we’ve said should be multiplied by itself several times when we’re determining Importance.  It means that Headquarters is sick of the Petty Huper Ego screwing up our end of the Galaxy, and is making it very Clear that we need to get our Shit together instead of bathing in it.  It means that whatever Illusions we have about Making a Difference, are just Ego Trips – the notion that we’re In Charge here is a Cosmic Joke.  We just need to Surrender and Live the Best Life we can.

The fifth Big Banana in the 17 June Full Moon chart is what astrologers call a “Grand Cross.”  It should be a lot Bigger Deal than it actually is, because it consists of four LifeLong Frustrations (T-Squares) back to back.  But that very back-to-backness means they actually abet one another in weird ways, so a Grand Cross person is more likely to be a High Achiever and Skilled Multi-Tasker than a Champion of Frustration.  Rather than four Frustrations, it’s more Realistic, Empirically, to look at a Grand Cross as two intertwined Dichotomies (Oppositions).

We’ve already been discussing Dichotomies, so we’re on somewhat familiar Ground.  Let’s examine each of them…

  • While we’re Aware that Our Life as We Have Known It is falling apart, we’re also Conscious that Rebirth is in the air (dwarf planet Haumea Conjunct asteroid Veritas), so Ambiguity is rife.  On the other hand, we can see, with our own eyes and through the eyes of Others, that there are things in our Life that we can no longer Ignore (asteroid Klotho Conjunct dwarf planet Eris).  These seem almost Complimentary, so where is the Dichotomy?

That’s for us to Discover.  Astrology often makes synonyms Opposites, and we just have to Live with it.  For instance, we could hypothesize that our Fear about having to Face something we’ve been Ignoring is juxtaposed against our Intuitive Excitement about an Impending Future Feeling very Close at hand.  Wall Street’s maxim that a Bull Market “climbs a Wall of Worry” is a timely example.  We have no idea what’s going to Happen, but we know Something is, and it’s likely to be Big.

If we’re Comfortable with our Pluridimensional Intuition, we know that all Dichotomies are Fake News, because the Universe is a lot more complicated than that.  But if we Live in our Dualistic “Left” Brain, not knowing whether to reach for our Pinstripe Suit or our Life Jacket can be torturous.

  • One end of the second Dichotomy is about Getting Conscious of the Places where we Lack Self-Love or Overestimate ourself (asteroids Sappho and Juno Conjunct).  The other end is about Questioning whether we can Trust our Self-Confidence, or Trusting it Blindly (Pluto Conjunct dwarf planet Chariklo).  If we’re in a tight situation, making a Dichotomy out of these two could either Delight us or Terrify us.  “Excellent!  I know where to beef up my Self-Love!” or “OMG, what if they Notice that I’m Faking It!”
  • You can probably Imagine how the Confluence of these two Dichotomies can result in either a Nervous Breakdown, or a flurry of High-Functioning Multi-Tasking.  If we have to prepare for two possible Futures and we’re a dynamite Multi-Tasker (for example, we have a natal Grand Cross), we can stockpile Dinty Moore and Water in the garage, while we Pretend to be Hypercompetent in our make-or-break bid for the New Big-Money Client or the New Position and the Big Raise.  If we can only Focus on one Thing at once (for example, we don’t have a natal Grand Cross), we could be making a Choice, Questioning ourself, and swimming in Anxiety.

The Bottom Line is that there are very many high-profile Uncertainties in our World today.  Is it too late to sell the house at the Beach?  If I Go For Broke here will I be losing money on every transaction and hoping to make up for it on the volume?  The kids are still in school – I can’t just move to Kentucky and hope that factory doesn’t close too!  Which option will keep me out of jail and out of the hospital – Lie at the border, or tell them I’m bringing back $3,000 worth of Insulin?

Well, astrology does offer a clue here (Prominent Feature #6).  One of the four corners of the Grand Gross is more of a Blessing than a Frustration (the Haumea-Veritas T-Square is a Diamond Star or Self-Resolving Challenge).  So there’s a greater probability that the Impending Rebirth that we can Sense, will Save our Ass.  The clue even suggests a Course of Action – Acknowledge our Fear of the Unknown, and Trust our Skillset to find a path out of the Wilderness if necessary (the Finger of God that converts the T-Square to a Diamond Star is based on the Sextile between dwarf planet Sedna and asteroid Karma – Remember we have Good Karma too!).

♥ A few more items left, so have patience, we don’t need to hurry.  The impact of New and Full Moons is felt more after the event, so we’re still okay…

Rebirth Full Moon II

June 16, 2019

Second, and almost as Foremost, at the 17 July Full Moon, is the symbol for Unlimited Potential (dwarf planet Chaos) that’s Merged with the symbol for our Essence (the Sun).  And since a Full Moon is by definition a Dichotomy (Opposition) between our Essence and our Instincts (the Moon), this means a Dichotomy between our Forbidden Genius (Ixion) and our Unlimited Potential.

Nothing unusual about Dichotomies – in 3D we Live in Duality.  So we’re actually used to thinking that our Potential and what’s Forbidden are Either/Or.  We can either be good little Boys and Girls and Realize our Potential, or we can Rebel and make everybody Reject us.  That’s the Codependent Perspective, where the only way to Realize our Potential is through Socially Approved Channels.  Which is great if the World is Stable and Sane.

Which it ain’t these days.  The World is Changing Rapidly on just about all levels except Huper Responsibility, and is by no measure Psychologically Healthy.  The only thing we can Change is ourself, so if the World needs Changing, we have to Change it one self at a time – us.  As Pogo famously said long ago, “We Have Seen the Enemy.”  So what’s the first thing we have to Change?  The Socially Approved part, because that’s what’s suppressing Huper Responsibility and Psychological Health.  In Mythology and astrology there’s an Expert at Social Disapproval, namely Ixion.

So we turn the Dichotomy on it’s head.  We move toward Unlimited Potential by engaging the Forbidden.  You’re seeing it at the moment in Hong Kong, recently in France, soon in the British Isles.  Engaging the Forbidden doesn’t necessarily mean Confrontation though; there are a million ways to do it Constructively, without making everybody Angry (except your Programmers and their Internalizations).  Here’s one example – https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2019/06/12/new-plan-remove-trillion-tons-carbon-dioxide-atmosphere-bury-it/.

In this environment we Succeed by Dismissing one of the “Shoulds” that shout at us, and instead Embracing one of the Intuitions that are always Whispering sweet nothings in our ear.

Which isn’t always easy, because as Hupers we’re Encapsulated in our Habits, and no Habits are more Difficult to Escape than our Karma.  And at this Full Moon those Habits are front and center, and Challenging us to Break Free of them (the Full Moon is T-Squared by asteroid Karma).  Well, we’re hardly rookies around our Karma, especially lately, so it’s not like this is an unfamiliar Challenge for us.  We could even Remind everyone that the Journey from 3D to 5D can easily be Reframed as the Journey of Cleansing ourself of our Karma.

As Mother Gaia moves deeper into Her Split between 3D and 5D, Cleansing our individual Karma gets more and more critical, so it’s good that it’s Lit Up here.  It’s not difficult to see what a Morass the 3D version is rapidly becoming, so the sooner we depart the better.  Waiting around for the Psychopaths to Change won’t serve your Future at all, you’ll just end up with them Running the Asylum, as if they aren’t already.  If you aren’t sure what the 3D-5D Split is all about, read Michael Roads’s Through the Eyes of Love series.  His is the only place I’ve seen it clearly described, though I don’t think he ever uses the terms.

That’s the Meat of the Full Moon itself, but we still have four other Prominent Features to go, not to mention the Hidden Treasures.  So, to be continued, though here’s an outline…
