Another of my favorite Frank & Earnest cartoons: “I just get my [Identity] budget in order, and along comes a big surprise, like rent, or a weekend!”
This lovely chart will carry us through January 27 or so.
- Can you see the big blue Kite? It’s pointing at the headphones in the upper left (that’s the “North Node” in astrologuese). A Kite is a Big Boon, and it’s pointing at the North Node, which is our friend.
- How about the big dark red triangle? It points to the left off of the vertical spar of the Kite. That’s Pluto (which looks like a martini on a cross) that it’s pointing at, in the lower left. Big red triangles are “T-Squares,” and they’re Challenging, especially when they point at the God of the Underwhere, Pluto. Not to fear, they also lead to graduate degrees, and the Kite more than neutralizes the Challenge in this one. We’ve been working on this Masters Degree in Transformation and Ego Death for several years now, so we’re getting pretty good at it. Even if we still haven’t learned to enjoy it.
- Then there’s the orange wedge and the lavender-grey wedge, both pointing at the asterisk on a cross at the top right. The asterisk stands for the asteroid Juno, which symbolizes our Identity. The two wedges mean that our Identity is lit up like a Roman candle. Which is another Big Boon, because if we’re in the midst of Transforming our Ego, being Conscious of the Changes in our Identity helps a lot to remind us that we aren’t really “Dying,” we’re just crawling out of our cocoon and spreading our Wings.
And if we stretch our Sensitivity from the usual 3 Degrees, then Pallas (diamond on a cross), Mercury (horned circle on a cross), and the asteroid Chaos (written out – it means Potential, not Disorder) join to make a Grand Sextile (six-pointed star), one of the friendliest of Configurations. Since this is actually a Birth chart (for our Trance-re-Formed Self), the more expansive Sensitivity is actually appropriate. The chart is drawn for when the Moon reaches the Midpoint between Uranus (TV antenna on a circle) and the South Node (earbuds), 4am PST (http://www.jbuss.com/tt/pst4.htm) January 25.
The Moon usually shows us what’s really going on in a chart.
So while we expect this weekend to be pretty Intense again (or still), it should “end well.” Our Mantra could be “Pay Attention, and look for the Silver Lining.” We could be in for some Lifetime-Scale Epiphanies.
The orange wedge is a Quintile Yod, and the lavender-grey wedge is a Septile Yod.
Yods (wedgy triangles, also known as Fingers of God) mean Pay Attention to this!! A Quintile Yod is about Paying Attention to Learning (and Teaching), and a Septile Yod about Paying Attention to Magic (and Power).
The base of the Quintile (Learning) Yod is Chiron (K on a circle – Despair and Miracles) and the asteroid Ceres (cuphook – Sustainability), so…
One thing we’re Learning this weekend is how to Sustain our Consciousness of Miracles – providing we can Transcend the temptation to be Discouraged. With Pluto Transforming everything, that shouldn’t be too hard, especially with a smidgeon of Effort on our part, once we figure out which “our” is us at the moment. As long as our Identity is being washed, rinsed, and hung out to dry, we may as well take advantage of our Psychic nakedness and just merge with our Limitless Soul Self.
You know what it’s like when you’re flying, and coming in for a landing, and you can look out the window and see all those little houses down there, as if they were two-dimensional? Well, sit up straight, let the airplane dissolve, and let yourself be sitting comfortably at the center of six or eight or twelve dimensions, rather than just two or three. Pretty amazing, eh?
Once the plane lands, you can get up and walk around like that, as big as a small town. If you aren’t flying, you can get up and walk around like that anytime. It’s a great space from which to Pray or Visualize or Intend or Ask or Affirm or Command what you Want from your Life, and to be Curious about how the devil it’s going to Manifest. I mean, you’re Naked and Unlimited, so you can put on any sort of costume you want to put on. You can be Anybody. And Everybody. All at once even.
The base of the Septile (Magic) Yod is Pluto and Neptune (fork with a cross on the handle – Spiritual Energy). That’s a very powerful combination – Neptune (the GoddessHeart) Septile Pluto (Trance Formation), in a Yod with Consciousness or Identity (Juno)! That’s Big.
I mean, really, the only Limits here are the ones you put on yourself. Take them off and throw them in the washer. Run around naked all weekend. It’s the Dawning of the Age of Aquarius after all.
