Gay Hendricks has a concept called “Upper Limits,” where, if you start Enjoying Life more than your Limiting Beliefs would like you to, you self-sabotage. His suggested response is that, when we get into new Enjoyment territory, we slow down, take it easy, rest a lot, pay attention to our physical requirements like food and water, and give ourselves time to Integrate. If we start slowing down when we get Excited, rather than waiting till we self-sabotage, we may be able to avoid the sabotage entirely. Not to back away from the Excitement and Enjoyment, just to mellow into it.
Anybody hitting a wall here? Or sailing high?

The fastest corner of our Almost-Grand-Sextile is Jupiter, so it will stretch at least through the first ten days of July. The corners are Uranus-Eris, Chaos, Venus-Jupiter, Haumea, Pholus-Ixion, and the “Nursery Rug” Vacancy, “so the children can play in comfort and warmth.”

Jupiter Initiates Venus at 1am PDT ( http://www.jbuss.com/tt/pdt1.htm ) on 1 July in 22 Leo, “A carrier pigeon fulfilling its mission.”
We can read Venus-Jupiter as Self-Love. Or alternately, especially considering the other players in the Grand Sextile, Healing any lack of Self-Love.

Haumea is Stationary, and on 5 July it turns Direct in 21 Libra, at half-past 2am PDT ( http://www.jbuss.com/tt/pdt2.htm ). This isn’t Haumea’s first venture in the Gemini Duad of Libra – that started in December 2012 – but this Shadow Period pretty well spans the Gemini Duad, which begins the Gemini Decanate.
The Shadow Period is the time, and Zodiacal space, that a Retrogradation takes, including the planet’s first crossing the space before it goes Retrograde, and then traversing the space for the third time after it goes Direct. Suppose a Retrogradation covers 21-23 Libra. That’s the Shadow Period in space. The Shadow Period in time begins when the planet first gets to 21 Libra, before the Retrograde Station, and ends when it clears 23 Libra for the second time, after it has gone Retrograde and then gone Direct again. So while a Retrogradation might cover a month, the Shadow Period will be closer to three months.
Haumea itself is about Rebirth. As Pele’s daughter, Haumea is red hot and very raw. We want to give her lots of space, so she can cool off and congeal. We can map Haumea through the Libra Decanates…
- Libra Decanate of Libra – Rebirth into Meeting Other – 1995 to 2005
- Aquarius Decanate of Libra – Rebirth into Community – 2005 to 2015
- Gemini Decanate of Libra – Rebirth into Experimental Uses of Community
Haumea began this Shadow Period in October 2014, and turned Retrograde in January 2015. So we’ve had two iterations of this exercise, and now we’ll put the finishing touches onto what we’ve learned.
A critical issue has been how much we’re willing to compromise our Yintegrity for the sake of Community. Or alternatively, how much we’re willing to risk Community for the sake of our Yintegrity. Ideally, Community and Yintegrity would be mutually supportive, Win-Win. How many of us are close to that? We might think of it as testing our Community.
Θ Θ Θ Θ Θ
The other three corners here are not slouches.
Pholus-Ixion is about how much Responsibility we take, how much Power we take (for good or ill), how much Privilege we demand, how much Abuse we take, how much Consciousness we maintain. Lots of interaction terms between these parameters, Self-Love, and Rebirth in Community.
Chaos is about Unlimited Potential. We’re Co-Creating a New Planet here. Where are the Edges between our Demands and our Requests as we negotiate the Boundaries? As we dance between Yintegrity and Community, why aren’t we Demanding everything we Want?
Uranus-Eris is about clearing away additional layers of Denial so that our Yintegrity deepens by leaps and bounds. If our Community doesn’t support our Yintegrity, our Community will get the short end of the stick.

Then there’s the Vacancy. It says…
Remember Upper Limits? Take darn good care of yourSelf, your physical vehicle, and your Inner Child as you move through all of these Rebirths. Your skin – physical and Identity – will feel molten for a while, and you want to give it time to solidify before the next wave hits. If you can! Be very gentle with yourself for the next several weeks “so the children can play in comfort and warmth.”

Then there’s the Grand Cross: Chaos, Pholus-Ixion, Chiron, and Lilith, though Lilith moves out of the Grand Cross by early July, leaving just the Chiron T-Square, and Finger of God from Venus-Jupiter and Haumea – an extremely Powerful Chiron Diamond Star in other words.
Without the Yod, we’d have Chiron Square to Chaos and Pholus-Ixion…
Miracles without Limit, if we can overcome a wad of Self-Doubt – Am I taking too much?
With the Yod, we have that “bowl of Grace” under the Opposition between Chaos’s Unlimited Potential and Pholus-Ixion’s Healing of Self-Doubt. And the bowl of Grace is formed by the two most powerful players in the chart, Venus-Jupiter and Haumea…
Rebirth into Self-Love is available if we’re willing to make the shift to Miracles. How to do that? Empathize with yourself while you Feel your Self-Doubt. Do it as many times as it takes. Step outside your Feelings and look back in at the part of you that’s overwhelmed by those Feelings. Look back lovingly. How old is that Abandoned part of you? Hold their hand. Let them know that it’s okay for them to Feel everything they Feel. Show them that you Love them no matter what.
Self-Rejection is the deepest part of anyone’s Karma. It’s a contest between how many times you fall down and how many times you get up. Tap if it will help, and use your PIAVAs. But the critical part is who outlasts the other – will your Self-Rejection overcome your Self-Love, or will your Self-Love endure longer than your Self-Hate? Like pushups, this is about “reps” – be Loving with your worst Self-Rejection, over and over again, till it gets so easy that it’s automatic. That’s how we build new, “good” Karma – reps.
