By the way, that near-Earth asteroid that’s passing today (Friday May 31), 1998 QE2, is Conjunct Saturn when it’s at it’s closest approach. Whatever Energy it’s carrying, it’s clearly asking us to Pay Attention! It’s about 20 Moon-distances from the Earth, so not a worry on the Apocalypse front. I believe QE is just an ordinal (ie, between QD and QF), not short for Queen Elizabeth.
So Where Are We Now?
Now that we’re past the most current Ring-Pass-Not, or Through the Ringer if that fits better, shall we…
“slide into an alternate universe where every word has a new definition?”
Or shall we stretch our minds into new perspectives? Or maybe both?
Having as many perspectives as possible is the Survival equivalent of biodiversity. It’s dangerous to stretch the Limiting-Belief bars on our Worldview Birdcage, because our Birdcage not only helps us make sense of our Limitless Universe, it also keeps us feeling Safe. While the feeling of Safety isn’t all we need to stay Safe, it is helpful, as a feeling of Unsafety can draw danger to us. Like the molt of the Cancer Crab and the Scorpio Serpent, we’re vulnerable when we first demolish a Birdcage wall, till we get the foundation expanded and the new bars and roof in place. It’s better to do this while Granny is home or Sylvester is otherwise engaged, just not always possible.
We still have four major astro-indications tickling the ivories –
- The Learning Opportunity about Our Mission,
- Reorientation of Our Unconscious Mission,
- Our Yintegrity Exercises, and
- Reorientation of Our Conscious Mission.
In case we’ve forgotten, Yintegrity means being Authentic with what we feel in each moment, as opposed to managing other people’s impressions of us or seeking (Consciously or Unconsciously) to meet other people’s expectations. We’ve talked about all these indications before, but review won’t hurt. Plus there’s one more new process coming on strong toward the end of next week –
Let’s take them one by one…
1. The Learning Opportunity about Our Mission
We’re learning how our Soul Chord and our Mission are related, and we’re learning it in a Big way.
That is, the North-Node-focused Quintile Yod with Uranus and Jupiter, which endures through the first few days of June. Mercury and Venus are joining Jupiter. We can call a Quintile Yod a Learning Opportunity, with all of the positive and negative implications we usually associate with that phrase. Uranus and Jupiter are about expanding our connection with our own Soul. The North Node is the Treasure we seek at the end of the rainbow, aka our Mission in the Lifetime. Mercury and Venus will make the process more available to our Consciousness, and both are Out of Bounds, which means, Strong. In other words we’re…
Learning Big things that bring us more into alignment with our Purpose on the Planet.
A Quintile Yod can be irritating, as it may disrupt our routines. If it does, surrender into the disruption – Resistance is futile.
2. Reorientation of Our Unconscious Mission
Just who the devil do we think we are? Get an acquaintance to go around and ask all of your friends and enemies who you really are, and see what kind of book they write.
This is Juno T-Squaring the Moon’s Nodes. Note that the North Node of the previous indication is one of the Moon’s Nodes; these four indications are entangled. A T-Square means Mastery through Challenge. T-Squares rarely feel good, but there’s no better teacher, as we’re driven to keep trying and be creative. Juno is our Unconscious Identity. Often that’s about who we’re merged with (often Mom or Dad), without knowing it. When we’re trying to live Mom’s life instead of our own, it can introduce all sorts of misalignments, especially when Mom may well have been merged with Grandma.
We could easily be out of synch by a couple of generations, and when we simultaneously act out past-life Karma, just plain living in the wrong century. If we can get out of Blame long enough to notice a Pattern, we may be able to get Conscious enough to realign our life into the current century. There are a lot of the people who seem to be living in the wrong century and Blaming others for it these days – let’s pray that they receive some Enlightenment from this astroEnergy and start becoming part of the solution instead of a big part of the problem.
One of the difficulties with acting from our Unconscious Identity – rather than acting from our Instincts or our Emotions or our Soul Connection or our Ideals or our Values or even our Ego – is self-sabotage and lack of Choice. So any reorientation of our Unconscious Identity is a boon. The third corner of the T-Square triangle is the Moon’s South Node. While the North Node represents where we’re going, the South Node symbolizes where we’ve been. Typically the South Node is a repertoire of Held Emotions, Unfinished Business, and old past-life Patterns. And hidden beneath those Limitations are skills – everything we learned in those past lives – that we need to execute our Mission. So basically this is about…
Getting Conscious about the Patterns that no longer serve us or the Planet, and developing alternatives that are more constructive to our Desires.
Our Desires being key signposts leading to our Mission.
3. Our Yintegrity Exercises
Getting caught in places where we are not aligned with our Soul’s Intention and what our Heart regards as Sacred.
You well know that we’re in the midst of Uranus Squaring Pluto, from 2012 to 2015 – return of the 1960s, I gotta be me, Don’t Tread on Me, and that sort of thing. Pluto represents compulsory change of Trance, and Uranus a deeper connection to our Individual Soul. And we have an Out of Bounds Vesta Opposing Pluto, making a T-Square focused on Uranus. Vesta stands for that which we personally hold Sacred, so while the T-Square means Mastery through Challenge, the players are mutually reinforcing.
The Challenge arrives because Uranus disrupts old Patterns that are no longer constructive, and Patterns which no longer serve that which we hold Sacred. Combined with the North Node-Uranus-Jupiter Quintile Yod, the North Node-Chiron-Vesta Grand Trine, and the Juno-Nodes T-Square…
In a few months we will hardly recognize ourselves – if we even remember who we used to be.
Expect a lot of Tipping Points, where long-simmering trends erupt into full-blown shifts in Consciousness – like the recent wholesale collapse of sanctified homophobia in the USofA.
4. Reorientation of Our Conscious Mission
Grace flows when we PIAVA Miracles to heal dysfunction in our lives.
The Grand Trine between the North Node, Chiron, and Vesta-ISON persists. In addition, since April 9 (several days before the Boston Marathon), Vesta has been Out of Bounds, or Stronger than usual. It’s Out of Bounds until June 13. Vesta symbolizes that which we hold Sacred, Chiron stands for converting Despair into Miracles by changing the underlying Paradigm, and ISON is way too new to be well-defined, but one justifiable representation could be reaching for the Stars, or stealing Fire. That’s certainly a game-changer worthy of a Waxing Vesta-Chiron Trine.
We’ll have to write more about that. Just as a hypothetical, assuming the Out of Bounds Vesta is heightening the conflict between the various shades of Fundamentalism (which means taking your metaphors literally) that run feral on the Planet, what if the underlying Paradigms of the perennial combatants changed to
Whoa, that’s a mirror!
What an epiphany that would be. The downside of a Grand Trine is the ease with which Grace can be confused with Confidence. The Ego is so hungry for validation that it easily mistakes every example of Grace for its own cleverness. I’ve actually met folks who believe that Wealth is the measure of Spiritual progress! Can you believe that!?!
5. Cultural Realignment
Hmmm, I guess I was wrong about that!
As if it’s not enough for the Collective Consciousness to be shifting one individual Consciousness at a time, next Friday (June 7) Neptune Stands Still and turns Retrograde. When a planet Stations (Stands Still), its Energy is at its Strongest. We’ll write more about all this as we get closer to the portal, but Neptune represents the Cultural layer of the Collective Unconscious. It’s not cumulative, it’s exogenous to the individual, an Energy in its own right. Like Pluto (the Universal Unconscious or Planetary Consciousness), we as individuals don’t Co-Create it, we experience it as an Energy approaching us from outside of ourselves.
For instance, the global clash between “conservative” and “progressive” Worldviews isn’t just a clash of individual Values, it’s a confrontation between two autonomous Cultural Energies. The point is that both Energies are obsolete as we enter the Age of Aquarius. Aborning Energies are usually invisible to all except those sensitive to them, as they don’t fit into the preconception of the prior Ages’ Muggles. It’s the keening of dying Energies that scream in the headlines.
Neptune symbolizes Confusion when seeing the World through Material Eyes, and Clarity when looking through Spiritual Eyes. Confusion, recall, is the first step in personal Growth. Confusion results when one of the bars of our Birdcage comes loose, and information leaks in that we would otherwise reject as incompatible with our preconceptions. It means we need to surrender to the inevitable search for broader perspectives, and the sooner the better. Meanwhile, Pallas Initiates Mars (with the Moon close by) on the same day, closely Square to the Stationary Neptune. Lots to write about there.
All Together Now…
When we line up these five different Energies side by side, the picture they paint is remarkably consistent – it’s all about Humanity starting to “grow up” a little, in the sense of no longer hitting back, and beginning to treat Other as worthy of some respect.
You don’t find Five-Symmetry in the Stone World, you have to talk to the Plants, like this ready-to-be-realigned Rock Rose, or an Apple. The Fifth Harmonic is about Learning, so maybe that’s why the Stone World is so stable. It’s not an accident that the Serpent gave an Apple to Adam’s second choice, and not a Cherimoya – which would have been much more appropriate.
