The Fabled Ides and the March Portals

astro8461bpAstrophyllite, a very complex and much-ignored Mineral that’s excellent for integrating large conglomerations of trends and events.  That’s why it’s named after astrology.  Despite its “-phyllite” suffix, it’s not a mica.  Here’s a cut and polished version: .  A Mica would never consent to being cut and polished across the grain like that.

We’ve several very busy weeks coming up, with several important threads weaving quite a tapestry for us.  Here’s the overview and timing…

  Ò    Ò   Ô   Ó   Ó 

For the next two years we’ll be bringing more Integrity – both Yintegrity (being True to ourself) and Yangtegrity (being True to our Word) – into our Actions.  This is big.  We’ll also endure less Stress, as we’ll have a light-Hearted and humor-filled approach to our Relationships.  Can you Imagine that – Integrity and less Stress?  That’s a natural consequence of being True to Ourself.

  • March 11 – Uranus Initiates Mars (fireworks) at 15 Aries, “An Indian weaving a ceremonial blanket: Projecting into everyday living the realization of wholeness and fulfillment,” 9am PDT (for other time zones see – spanning two years after the event.  Uranus Initiated Venus in the same Degree March 4.

      Ò    Ò   Ô   Ó   Ó 

We’re waking up to some very big Realizations that will Change our Lives March 8-14, and as this Energy ricochets around from Person to Person it will Change our Cultures.  Will it Change the Horrible Cultures for the better?  Not till folks in the Glorious Cultures notice what Bullies they are and come to understand that the Horrible Cultures are just Mirrors for their Glory.  Even after that it’ll take a long while to work off the horrible Karma that Glory has Created.  This isn’t even Age of Pisces material (except for the Victims of Glory), it’s Karmic krap left over from the Age of Aries, the Age of Heroes. 

In Heroic history, a few hotshot leaders are the movers and shakers and everyone else is just rabble.  In Herstory, Real Change is made one Person and one Action at a time, and the hotshots are seen as the blowhards and stuffed shirts that they actually are.  If you compare Obama to Gandhi, or Putin to Mandela, or better yet Merkel to your own mother, you can grok the difference.  Gandhi and Mandela, while Peace-loving, were still very public figures.  Think about the individuals you admired growing up.  Herstory isn’t about singing the praises of a few, it’s about enjoying the accumulated fruits of the Many, and taking them one step further.  You’re surrounded by unsung Heroines.  Celebrate them, including your own Inner Unsung Heroine!

  • March 12 – Moon crosses Saturn (focus), 2am PDT ( Energy increases from three hours prior till the event, then lingers for thirty hours after
  • March 13 – Juno Stationary Direct (uptick in Consciousness), 1am PDT ( – spanning three or four days prior to the event
  • March 14 – Saturn Stationary Retrograde (Let Go of priorities #2 through #99 for now), 8am PDT – spanning one week prior to the event

      Ò    Ò   Ô   Ó   Ó 

For the last three years we’ve been working on resurrecting the 1960s.  It was a complex decade, where Freedom from the need to Conform ascended into the limelight as the evil manipulators behind the curtains were exposed.  What appears to be Conservative backlash is just more opportunity to expose the manipulation – the more confident they get, the sooner they shoot themselves in the foot.  Don’t Confuse the Libertarian Perspective (don’t tell me what to do – I’ll tell you what to do!) with the Uranian Perspective (don’t tell me what to do and I won’t tell you what to do or who to be).  The differences are Compassion and Accountability – Libertarianism has neither. 

We come to the end of this three-year Adventure on March 16.  While the trend toward this Energy infusing the Planet continues to advance, it becomes less of a crisis for us; we reach a working arrangement with our compromises between Yintegrity and what we see as expediency.  While we may feel pretty smug here about making it through this long and difficult Portal (and Celebration is in order – in mid-April), it’s actually one last chance to break through the most difficult of our Challenges over the last three years.  There’s some part of yourself that you’ve been tested about repeatedly, but you haven’t yielded.  Open your Heart to that part of yourSelf.  Imagine what it would be like if Life was EasyPIAVA that, along with a Loving and Gentle Release of all that would prevent it.

  Ò    Ò   Ô   Ó   Ó 

There will be a trend over the next year for “Spiritual Competition” – folks loudly attesting their Spiritual Cred, so we can admire them.  This is great, as they become Heyoka (Contrary) Teachers for everyone else, who first gets a reminder of Spiritual Principles, and second gets an illustration of how not to Live them.  Beware of folks pretending to stand up for your interests while stabbing you in the back; they’ll be very vocal.

  • March 18 – Neptune Initiates Mercury (mindmeld, fuzzy Material thinking, clear Spiritual thinking) at  9 Pisces, “A jockey spurs his Horse, intent on outdistancing his rivals,” 2am PDT ( – spanning three days prior, one year after

      Ò    Ò   Ô   Ó   Ó 

At “Power Points,” our ability to Manifest is intensified.  March 19-20 is one of those Power Points, and the effect will linger for a year or more.  It’s been demonstrated that it’s much more difficult to turn a negative trend positive than it is to turn a positive trend negative.  So we’ll need to be very mindful of our negative thoughts.  As soon as you detect them, say “Cancel, Neutralize, Upgrade” – Cancel the thought, Neutralize the Energy emanating from it, and Upgrade the thinker.

  • March 20 – Total Solar Eclipse (Insights) at 30 Pisces, “A majestic rock formation resembling a face is idealized by a boy who takes it as his ideal of greatness, and as he grows up begins to look like it,” 3am PDT ( – spanning three hours prior, eighteen months after
  • March 20 – Sun crosses Equator 4pm PDT ( – spanning three months after

  Ò    Ò   Ô   Ó   Ó 

Big Big Insights into the way we betray ourselves on March 20-21.  Excellent time to Cancel Neutralize Upgrade that!

  Ò    Ò   Ô   Ó   Ó 

There are some things where the End justifies the Means, and we could encounter these places March 17-23.  When we come to those places, we need to be very careful to finesse the Unintended Consequences.  In these situations, it’s Safer to PIAVA ) than to Act, because we can add terms to our PIAVAs.  For instance, if we want to Visualize someone finding Peace, we can instead Wish them Peace and Justice and Safety

  • March 23 – Dwarf planet Ixion Out of Bounds and Stationary Retrograde (relentless is great, ruthless not so much), 9am PDT ( – spanning one week prior

  Ò    Ò   Ô   Ó   Ó 

Yes, you could have done better at that.  But watch out for the Blame trap March 19-25.  Definitely do a post mortem to see what can be learned, to reduce the likelihood of having to redo this assignment.  The difference between Blame and Responsibility is where you’re standing.  If you’re facing backwards (Who did that?  How did that happen?) it’s probably Blame.  If you’re facing forwards (How can we fix this?) it’s probably Responsibility.  Most of the folks around you will be in Blame.  If that triggers your Guilt or Shame, step back, locate your own Feelings in your Body, and be Loving and Gentle with them.  “You poor Sweetheart, that really feels awful, doesn’t it.”  You’ll need to make it clear to those folks that you won’t play the Shame Game no more – or Change the folks you hang out with.  Or both.

  Ò    Ò   Ô   Ó   Ó 

Another opportunity to reach for the Yintegrity Stars March 22-28.  Yintegrity means Trusting your own Intuition enough to do what you feel like doing, moment to moment.  You may need to reduce your Commitments, make your Life more Sustainable by eliminating what’s not essential, Renegotiate Agreements you no longer feel like keeping, and make Amends when Renegotiation isn’t possible.  You have Conflicting Wants – for instance, you may Want Freedom and also Want the Income necessary to support that Freedom, but you may have the Belief that you have to “Work” for it, on their schedule.  PIAVA Freedom and Support, and a Loving and Gentle and Rapid and Complete Release of all that would prevent it.

There are things that must be done.  But that doesn’t mean you have to Betray your own Values or Desires to do them.  Betray your Limiting Beliefs instead.  Or better yet, Change them.  PIAVFA to Follow your Joy and Get Done What Must Be Done and Surrender your Belief that never the ‘twain shall meet – Lovingly, Gently, Rapidly, and Completely.

  Ò    Ò   Ô   Ó   Ó 

We’ve been making lots of Changes, not just in the last few weeks, but over the last three years.  As new portions of your Self come forth, old portions of your Self retreat.  Every Loss must be Grieved.  It would be very timely March 29-April 4 to hold a Wake for all of the parts of your Self that have been demoted.  Most of them are still Skillful, so you don’t want to Banish them entirely, but some will certainly be less Popular than they were before.  Your Pleaser, most likely, for example, who may have been disguising themselves as Yangtegrity.  Perhaps your Anger.  The Safety of being Invisible.  Praise these personae.  They’re no longer in the position of Authority that they held before, but they still represent very useful and well-practiced Skills, which you’ll need again.  Now you’ll be able to use them when they’re appropriate and effective rather than by habit.
