Happy New Moon! We have more important things to talk about, though. The “horrendous” Harvest Full Moon that we spoke of earlier was just a front for the Moon’s Nodes backing into Scorpio-Taurus. And early next week the second of the seven Uranus-Pluto events that grace 2012-2015 finds us. In fact, Pluto is Stationary as we speak, with a Retrograde Uranus about seven minutes of orb away from backing into the second square to Pluto.
The exact Pluto Station (it goes Direct) occurs at 10pm PDT Monday, and Uranus arrives at the exact Square at Midnight PDT Wednesday morning – or late Tuesday, depending on your sleep schedule and your longitude. In other words, we’re waaay deep into Gotta Be Me. When we look at the Waxing Square from the perspective of Cycles, it’s about the Energy becoming permanent. When we look at it as an Angle unto itself, it’s about Mastery through Challenge. There’s no downside here, but you do have to pass through a few hoops to enter the chamber.
So as usual, we look at the unfolding plotline for our clues. Like Seth said long ago, if we wanna know just who’s in charge in our Unconscious, all we gotta do is look at our personal history. Anything standing in the way of your being Nobody But You? That’s your Challenge, your Hungry Ghost. It means you no harm, it just wants to show you a few fabulously useful tricks that you can’t learn any other way except experientially. And since we’re talking about the Unconscious, there’s no talking to it directly, cuz if you and HeShe were on speaking terms they wouldn’t be Un, would they. So our Hungry Ghost – our Coach, really – has to lead us into the experiences indirectly, with some subterfuge.
Whatever it is you believe you need to hide, lest ruin befall you, it ain’t that way. Your fear isn’t present-moment. You probably can’t imagine an easy, effortless, smooth, comfortable, exciting, rewarding, supportive path from where you are now to where you can be unabashedly, unapologetically, unlimited You. That’s fine, it’s actually better that you can’t, because that would just get in the way. You just want to spend some time imaging what it would feel like in your body if you could be unabashedly, unapologetically, unlimited You, and you could get there by an easy, effortless, smooth, comfortable, exciting, rewarding, supportive path. Worth repeating…
You just want to spend some time imaging
what it would feel like in your body
if you could be unabashedly, unapologetically, unlimited You, and you could get there by an easy, effortless, smooth, comfortable, exciting, rewarding, supportive path.
If you had any idea where that place is, or how to get there, you’da gone there long ago. But you can get there today by imaging what it would feel like in your body if you could be unabashedly, unapologetically, unlimited You. The more time you spend doing that, the more you’ll find your Life beginning to reflect an unabashedly unapologetically unlimited You, and the more you’ll find that the path getting there has been easy, effortless, smooth, comfortable, exciting, rewarding, and supportive. Fun, eh? Just don’t let your mind or your emotions start throwing in details and scenarios. If you knew the plot, you’d be there. You don’t. Stay Curious about how it’ll all unfold. If you need to strive, strive for permanent Curiosity.
Now, the fly in the ointment, and the catalyst for all these potentially “horrendous” flashbacks you been having, is Dragon in Scorpio. The Dragon’s Head – the Moon’s North Node – has backed into Scorpio. The Dragon always flies backwards – that’s the nature of Karma. (Except when it don’t, but you won’t know about that till you give up Linear Time.) Have you noticed that the flashbacks have been only potentially horrendous – the shame could be overwhelming, but somehow there’s a filter over the lens of the projector that makes it all seem distant and hazy, like we can’t really empathize into it, though it feels like maybe we should.
That’s because we’ve already gotten one huge Uranus-Pluto download, and we’re in the middle of receiving the second one. We ain’t us no more. That person who endured the traumadramas in those flashbacks ain’t you no more. You’ve moved on. You’ve stepped up out of that Karma, off the treadmill. You still remember it, hence the flashbacks. But you ain’t you anymore, hence the filter. Uranus represents the Individual Soul, and Pluto symbolizes the inevitability of Transformation. You can call it a sort of ascension if you want, but that’s a term that can play tricks on the Ego and drop you back a few steps if you aren’t careful with it. Better to call it a download, or even the end of Karma.
It could even be dangerous to talk about, as you could get Ego-attached to your descriptions, to your snapshots, to their interpretations, and lose the plotline of your movie. But then, can you really Gotta Be Me in private, or does it require witnesses? That could be part of yer Challenge, if you chose parents who would put speedbumps into your driveway to make sure you weren’t just trying to please. Doesn’t matter; all you gotta do is imagine what it would feel like in your body if you could be unabashedly, unapologetically, unlimited You, and you could get there by an easy, effortless, smooth, comfortable, exciting, rewarding, supportive path. Easy to get stuck in details and scenarios in conversation.
It’s not the Moon’s South Node (“past” lives) that’s moved into Scorpio, it’s the North Node (“future” lives). So it’s not like we need to be relentless about getting to the bottom of (Scorpio) our Karma (South Node). It’s that we’ll find ourself being relentless about getting on with (Scorpio) our Mission (North Node)! Relentless about moving aside any obstacles that still may stand between us and Who We Really Are, aka Our Mission. But Karma is dead, so really there are no more obstacles. There’s only our habituation to the belief that there must be obstacles! But habituation is exactly what Karma is, and that’s dead. Hence the haziness of our flashbacks.
The door is open.
You can walk through it, or just sit on the stoop and enjoy the warm Sun and fresh morning Air for awhile, till you get the urge to do something. Yer newborn – it may take ya a while to find yer fingers and toes and learn what muscles are and how to make them crawl. There’s no rush, it’s all perfect. If you need to, tap out your expectation that there must be Guilt in here somewhere. That was then. This is now.
Do it Woody Allen’s way…
“In my next life, I want to live my life backwards. You start out dead and get that out of the way. Then you wake up in an old people’s home feeling better every day. You get kicked out for being too healthy, go collect your pension, and then when you start work, you get a gold watch and a party on your first day. You work for 40 years until you’re young enough to enjoy your retirement. You party, drink alcohol, and are generally promiscuous, then you are ready for high school. You then go to primary school, you become a kid, you play. You have no responsibilities, you become a baby until you are born. And then you spend your last 9 months floating in luxurious spa-like conditions with central heating and room service on tap, larger quarters every day and then Voila! you finish off as an orgasm!”
I think that’s an “American Flame” Lily, an “OT” Lily, or a cross between a fragrant Oriental Lily and a towering Trumpet Lily. That’s yer usedtabe in the left background.
