Venus Resting, Chiron Surging

June 10, 2012

How was your Venus Walking?

Last week I read Brian Froud’s How to See Faeries – it’s short, and fun.  The day after Venus Walking I was driving home from the Big City and Whoa!  Alla sudden the Trees were alive!  And there were a lot of them!  I had to focus to stay on the road, they wanted a lot of Attention.  Big Change for me, even if the Goddess skipped Wisconsin – or maybe not, if it’s really about being forced to go back to Community and stop focusing on Politics.  The word Politics is the same word as Power, which for all intents and purposes, is just Ego run amok.  Community is Other.  Of course it’s all about Identity.  Are we AllOne, or are we Alone?

Venus should be reborn as the Morning Star – Athena, Innana, Quetzalcoatl – soon; if yer up before dawn and the Eastern sky is clear, have a look.

Great new short Bruce Lipton video out…

What’s up next?  If we ignore Jupiter’s entrance into Gemini, it’s Chiron standing still and turning Retrograde.  Jupiter in Taurus for the last year would have amplified (Jupiter) stasis (Taurus) – think Europe (or for that matter the US), where one desperate attempt after another has been made to keep nonfunctioning financial-economic-government systems from collapsing utterly.  Gemini’s about change, and lots of it.  It’s about trying out all kindsa new ways of doing things, just to see what’ll work – or just to see what happens whenya do.  We’ll see that amplified for the next year.

Neptune was Stationary turning Retro last Monday; now it’s Chiron turning Retro this coming Tuesday.  They been fellow-traveling the last several years, as they’ve conspired to set up a whole new way for us to view the World and everything in and on it.  Retrograde, remember, means thinking it over.  Everybody and everything would rather mull things a while than act precipitously.  Stationary means Strong.  When a planet is Stationary, its Energy dominates everything else.  So, what happens when Chiron dominates?

Chiron is about converting Despair into Miracle by reorganizing the foundation on which we build the structures of our thinking and feeling.  Remodeling our birdcage.  Here’s a trivial example: when I was cooking up some Bacon today, I spontaneously contacted the Soul of Pig, expressed my Gratitude, and sought her Blessing – which she generously granted.  It never occurred to me to explicitly do that before.  I can feel the difference in my body; eating it brings Joy.  I think I’ve always felt a little guilty about cooking and eating Bacon before.  Opens my mind to many other possibilities.  Not that I was in Despair over Bacon, but I do notice that I’ve been seeking stronger flavors lately.  Being in Harmony with what I eat is already changing that.

Chiron is probably a “captured comet” – a big iceball that got snared into a planet-like orbit instead of a comet-like orbit, by the grabity of the Big Planets.  It’s orbit is irregular.  It soars waaay out and touches the orbit of Uranus, then zooms waaay back in, to finish inside the orbit of Saturn before it scoots back to Uranus.  It’s a messenger.  It’s even considered a “higher octave” of our wing-ankled friend Mercury.  It touches our Individual Soul (Uranus), and brings an enlightening message back to our workaday Ego (Saturn) – then takes a message back from our Working Self to our Ideal Self.  It’s not a one-way flow of Energy.

At the moment, after spending many years inside Saturn’s orbit (while repeatedly Opposing Saturn – awakening contradistinctions between the habitual and possible), Chiron is now soaring outward toward Uranus.  As a captured comet with an irregular orbit, one of these orbits Chiron could well just keep going.  That would make Earth Life unbearably boring, so you may want to join me in contacting the Soul of Chiron, expressing our Gratitude, and asking for her Blessing.  Sure, change can be hard, but you can PIAVA (Pray, Intend, Ask, Visualize, or Affirm) that it be loving and gentle and rapid and complete.  You can even PIAVA that you’ll lose none of the benefits you would have gained had you done it the hard way.

So what could our Ego have to tell our Soul, that our Soul didn’t already know?  Well, it could tell the Soul what Life is actually like on Earth, here among the Hubeings.  You can imagine Chiron telling Uranus, Didja hear the one about the… and the two of them laughing their heads off.  Not that Uranus could possibly believe that it’s possible for anybody to forget the existence of the Soul, and actually believe that Matter is real!

Anyway, look for small Miracles the next several days.  Little light bulbs lighting up, “solving” long-simmering “problems” you’ve been working on.  And stay open for Big Miracles.  And don’t be quick to judge what seems Retrograde, like government in Wisconsin.  The Corporate Media want to keep you in Trance so you believe that everything is (a) Business As Usual so no worries and (b) Scary As Hell so be very scared, but it aint neither.  It’s just Change.  Tune into the Soul of Ten Years Hence, find your Gratitude, and ask for a Blessing.  Something is happening, Mr. Jones.

Best View So Far

June 5, 2012

So far, the best view is to be had at http://sunearthday.gsfc.nasa.gov/webcasts/nasaedge/; ten minutes to touchdown, though I was 4,000 feet off; it’s 14,000 feet up on top of Mauna Kea.  So far they haven’t pointed their cameras toward the Ocean three miles below.  They’re even dealing with Goddess Stuff a little, interviewing native Hawaiians about the cultural surround.  Sun even came out here, too bad I don’t have a welder’s helmet!

Venus Walking Schedule

June 5, 2012

Here’s a timeline and a review of Venus-Walking-Across-the-Face-of-the-Sun websites…

DO NOT LOOK DIRECTLY AT THE SUN WITHOUT INDUSTRIAL-GRADE EYE PROTECTION (such as a welder’s helmet – sunglasses won’t prevent blindness)

Her Firewalk begins four minutes after 3pm PDT, and ends 26 minutes after 9pm PDT.

The best viewing location is between Hawaii and Japan.  The second-best location is on the Internet – your neck won’t ache, and you won’t go blind besides.

NASA has a live webcast from the top of Mauna Kea on Hawaii, starting at fifteen minutes before 3pm PDT, at

http://sunearthday.gsfc.nasa.gov/webcasts/nasaedge/

Best of both worlds, eh?  Hawaii and no blindness!  It’s 10,000 feet up, though, so bring a sweater.

Third-best location would be floating many miles above the Planet, out beyond that pesky atmosphere that blurs things up so (bring Oxygen!).  They have a solar filter (so you can see more than a huge glare) and a still camera on the International Space Station, and they say they’ll be beaming live pictures to

http://www.flickr.com/photos/nasa_jsc_photo/7164346718/in/set-72157629649730820/

all day, though they don’t seem to have started yet.

NASA has its own real-time snapshot gallery, that’ll even automatically refresh if you allow such a thing (not a good practice, security-wise), at

http://spaceweather.com/gallery/?PHPSESSID=ti65d21eo1s3jkqmmvol85p426

and seems to have teamed up with some Sugar-Water company (ah, the business-government partnership!  I think they used to call that “National Socialism”) to create another live webcast from Oz and Mongolia (where the full Walking is visible) starting at half past 2pm PDT

And there’s kindofa Venus-Walking Central at

Lemme know what works and what doesn’t.

More Venus Walking, and Lilith

June 4, 2012

Great interview of Kelley Hunter about the Mysteries of Lilith; it’s the last interview, bottom of the page, at…

http://planetwaves.net/pagetwo/planet-waves-fm/planet-waves-fm-continuing-coveage-from-uac/

She’s interviewed by Eric Francis.  She straightens out some of my misconceptions and confusions (which doesn’t mean I’ll change them, because what’s important to me is not how Matter appears but what has Meaning to the Heart – my Heart).

Kelley’s behind on her website, and I don’t want to recopy her email newsletter, but today’s issue is a great summary of the Earth Changes we’re in the middle of; email her at kellhunter@eartlink.net and ask for a copy.

Another view of Venus Walking…

http://www.midlandsschoolofastrology.co.uk/astrological_meaning_of_venus_transit_2012.html

Lotsa convergence.

Do you know what I mean when I say that The World is pixelating?  Lotsa very strange stories running around; reminds me of Bergman’s Seventh Seal.  And lotsa Reality-shifting; when the World changes (or our Birdcage opens, or we are Trance-re-formulated), the picture we have of it breaks up, and then re-forms differently and newly.  Even Lucy was about congruence!

Thanks, Alice, for sending along the link to Eric Francis’s Venus Walking Across the Face of the Sun web page…

There’s a whole lot in there!

Eclipse Videos, Venus Walking

June 1, 2012

Coupla nice time-lapse videos of May 20 Annular Solar Eclipse…

With Dragon successfully delivering lunch to the International Space Station and taking out the garbage, one of the astronauts on the ISS took along a solar filter and camera, and will broadcast pictures of Venus Walking live from Space…

http://science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-at-nasa/2012/31may_isstransitofvenus/

I hadn’t remembered that excitement about Space as an element of the 60s, but it certainly was, in the early 60s anyway.  In them days hereabouts lotsa folks wanted to become Engineers so they could outdo Sputnik.  Nowadays it’s just fundamental personal economics – so you can maybe get a job.  And of course the Chinese got it – most of their leaders are Engineers, while most of the leaders in the USofA are Lawyers.  While Chinese leaders know how to build, American leaders know only how to argue.  To American leaders, the only important thing is to win the argument; for Chinese leaders, it’s whether it works or not.  End of Empire.

Monday’s Lunar Eclipse happens at 15 Gemini – “Two Dutch children talking and exchanging knowledge.”  Interesting that they’re Dutch, as it’s the countries in between Germany and France, tired of centuries of German and French soldiers stomping back and forth across their turf, that are most keen about sustaining the Union which is threatening to dissolve in Europe – though the current dissolution is North-South rather than East-West.  They’re Dutch rather than Danish, but the Sabian image reminds me a lot of Peter Hoeg’s Borderliners – just how do we define Reality, anyway?  The EU capital, Brussels, is the cultural capital of Flanders, the Dutch half of Belgium.  Belgium was without a government for several years through 2011 because the Flemish couldn’t agree with the French half of Belgium, Wallonia.  Another North-South split.  It’ll be quite fascinating to see how this Eclipse changes the EU.

Venus Walking Across the Face of the Sun the next day occurs in the following degree, 16 Gemini, “A woman activist in an emotional speech dramatizing her cause.”  I’ll be very surprised if her cause is obedience to a redneck Retropublican hubby.

The concurrent Venus-Mars Square is complex.  It’s waning, and the second in a series of three such Squares.  The waning Square is about the opportunity to choose between releasing and re-leasing.  Venus-Mars is of course about Relationship, most especially and critically about the Relationship between our Inner Female and our Inner Male.  The waning Cycle was intiated a year ago at 10 degrees of Taurus, “A Red Cross nurse.”  The next Cycle begins a year hence at 20 Aries – “A young girl feeding birds in Winter.”  These Symbols were channeled a long time ago, long before “man” was divided into “human” and “male,” and so many of the symbols refer ambiguously to “man.”  But here we have three Symbols together that all refer specifically to the female (of course a Red Cross nurse could be male, but realistically, what are the odds?).  The theme of both of these Venus-Mars symbols is nurturance.

So of course we turn to the Black Moon Lilith.  The Moon’s orbit around the Earth is an oval, and while circles have one center, ovals have two.  The Earth is at one of the Moon’s orbit’s centers, and the other center is called in astrology “Black Moon Lilith” (this is one of several Liliths in astrology).  Think of it as Earth 2 if you like, or Earth’s “Evil” Twin – we use the word “Evil” in the Medieval sense, “Live” spelled backwards, where Evil was defined as whatever the seemed to threaten the suzerainty of a paranoid Church.  Lilith was Adam’s first wife, who Walked when Adam started making rules about obedience.  That was before the Apple affair.

In the Venus Walking chart, BM Lilith is at the midpoint between Vesta and Ceres at Taurus 20 – “Wisps of winglike clouds streaming across the Sky” – looking like Wraiths to the MCPs I suppose.  Vesta symbolizes the Sacred, and Ceres the Sustainable.  Another strong statement about returning to the Grove.

The Moon Occults Pluto a few hours after Venus Walks.  That’ll bring the Uranus-Pluto Square to the foreground along with Neptune (which recall is Stationary during all these goings-on) and of course with that, Chiron-Neptune.  All of which could paint the New Paradigm (Chiron-Neptune) with a hefty tinge of Liberation (Uranus-Pluto) of the Feminine (Venus Walking et al).  Long overdue.

“Nature holds a memory and resonance of paradise, even though most of humanity has forgotten it.  Humanity does, however, remember at a deep, almost cellular level.  This memory has to be re-awakened through contact with the spiritual world and, more specifically, with our cousins, the Faery races and the ancestors.  Until this occurs, humanity is driven to search for that elusive missing something.  This ancestral memory lives within our blood and drives us to seek, find and share spiritual insight and meaning.  Luckily for us nature remembers and holds its essence within its processes.”
