Here’s Step 1a…
Archive for February, 2016
Step One: Focus on What you Want, not on What you don’t Want. This step is critical, don’t skip it.
If that’s hard, start by finding something you can be Grateful for. Running Water. Hot Water. Clean Water. Enough Food, or even some Food. A roof when it Rains. A flush krapper. A little less Pain than last week. Make a short list of things you aren’t Anxious about. The other shoulder doesn’t hurt. Someone said a kind word to you last month. You have a comfortable chair. Anything will do.
Good start. Now make a short list – several things – of what you Don’t Want. Doesn’t matter if you’re already afflicted with it, or if it’s just threatening, or if you’re Anxious that it might threaten. Give each of them a number, 1 to 10, 10 being “I’d Rather Die,” and 1 being “Oh Bother.” Tap on each of them a couple times: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzVd6Ww0as4 if you need a review. Then give them numbers again, 1 to 10. Any reduction? If not, circle that one, you’ll have to come back to it later.
Now make a short list of what you Do Want, several things. They can be an inch away or Pie in the Sky, no matter. Give them numbers, 1 to 10, 1 being “That’d be cool” and 10 being “I’ll Die without That!” Make a short note about how you’ll Feel when you get each one. In descending rank order (starting with your 10), for each one, take a minute and practice Feeling exactly that.
Step Two: Focus on What you Really Want. Take your top Want and really Feel how it’s going to be when you’re able to Receive it. Touch it. Smell it. Hear it. Taste it. Embrace it. See it. If your second Want is close to your top Want in number, do the same with it.
Step Three: What has Stopped you from Taking What you Really Want a long time ago? Your underprivileged upbringing? Guilt? Your Significant Others? Fear? Your Belief that it’s happening to you? Your Mother’s Ghost? Do you Deserve it? Are these reasons external to you, or internal? Tap on a few of your Stops. Bring them inside; if it’s a Bully that’s been Stopping you, recognize that it’s your Unwillingness to Confront, or your Belief that you’d be worse off if you Confronted, or your Hopelessness. Rather than spend a lot of time on this, take notes. This is important, so you’ll want to come back to it later.
Step Four: Focus again on What you Really Want. Take your top Want and really Feel how it’s going to be when you’re able to Receive it. Touch it. Smell it. Hear it. Taste it. Embrace it. See it. Notice if it’s any easier or deeper than it was in Step Two. If it is, make a note to repeat Steps Two and Three later. If you want, do the same with your second Want.
Step Five: Aim Higher. What if you could have more of What you Really Want, or What you Really Want with a lot of bells and whistles? Feel how that’s going to be when you’re able to Receive it. If you Change your mind and decide that what you Really want is something else entirely, great! Feel how that’ll be when you Receive it. Any Stops? Take notes so you can come back to them later.
Step Six: Now Aim a lot Higher. Stay with What you Want, but get ridiculous about it. You Wanted a Mate? Imagine having three! A house? Make it a mansion with its own caretaker, and a luxury RV with professional driver besides. World Peace? Go for Galactic Peace, or Universal Peace. You Wanted Good Health? Go for Good Health and Superpowers.
At this point in our Timelines, this is where we need to be.
The dwarf planet Chaos, which symbolizes Unlimited Potential, turns Direct on 29 February a few minutes after 3pm PST, 11pm UT. It’s Stationary (at it’s most Powerful) now. It’s in Gemini (Mutation). No better time to nurture Huge Changes than when your Infinite Improbability Drive is firing on all cylinders. Did you think Douglas Adams wrote fiction?
The Chaos Station Squares Chiron, so there’s great potential for Discouragement or even Despair, but far greater potential for Miracles when we Empathize with any Discouragement we feel. Chiron’s moving through Pisces, where it’s churning up every Emotional component of our Limiting Beliefs and exposing them to the Sun, which will sterilize them.
The asteroid Juno, which symbolizes The Growing Edge of our Consciousness, turns Retrograde on 2 March at a few minutes before 3am PST or 11am UT, meaning it’s Stationary (at it’s most Powerful) now. This occurs at the Midpoint of Scorpio – one of the Strongest points in the Zodiac, particularly adept at turning over rocks and diving deep to uncover hidden motives. No better time to remove Limiting Beliefs and Grow your sense of the Possible. And Chaos will still be Stationary.
Between the Full Moon and 8 March, a Quintile between Pallas (Boundaries) and Vesta (Unconscious Beliefs and Limits) forms the base of a Quintile Yod focused on Jupiter (Expansion). The Quintile Yod says that It’s Really Important to Pay Attention to Learning This! Learning what? Learning to Expand our sense of Self by stretching our Boundaries to Let Go of Limiting Beliefs. Jupiter is in Virgo, and Virgo is about Disassembling the Ego in order to make Space for Growth.
Jupiter completes a T-Square with Chaos and Chiron, focused on Chaos – Expanding our Discouragement and Overwhelm about the sheer quantity of Possible Futures we face, and Expanding the incredible Potential for Miracles waaay beyond what we can imagine! We just have to stretch into them. While it’s a few Degrees out of orb, Saturn (The Most Important Thing) completes the Grand Cross – so it’s our Willingness to Focus our Attention on what we Want to Create that will Co-Create the Big Shift.
The Most Important Thing that the Lizards are here to Teach us, is that Crisis breeds Opportunity. Read Naomi Klein’s Shock Doctrine and Tom Perkins’s New Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, and turn them on their heads – like it or not, Crisis is here, and likely to remain till 2020 (when Saturn Initiates Jupiter), What are WE going to do with the Opportunity? Do we have enough cumulative Attention to Focus on What we Want and Shift the Planet away from Greed and Competition, and back toward Community and Collaboration? Do we have enough Self-Love to Create what we Need for our own personal Peace, in order to have Loving Attention to spare for the Planet, so we aren’t just Projecting our Anxiety?
Jupiter meanwhile is moving toward an Initiation of the North Node (Mission and Deepest Desires) – Expanding our sense of What we Want and Where we’re Going. That’ll happen in June, close to when Eris Initiates Uranus and we come face to face with all the ways we’ve been forcing the True Self to Hold Back. Jupiter and the North Node are now two Degrees apart – Conjunct, in other words – meaning that we can’t tell the difference between them. The more Work we do with our Wants and Stops now, the easier June will be, and the impact will be exponential.
Lunar Portals along the way, all ± three hours…
- 10am PST 28 February, Moon over Stationary Juno
- 11pm 1 March till 7am PST 2 March, Moon over Saturn corner of the Grand Cross
- 11am PST 6 March, Moon over Pallas
- 11am till 9pm PST 8 March, Moon over Chiron corner of the Grand Cross
- New Moon at 6pm PST 8 March Conjoins Chiron, stretching the Grand Cross into the rest of March
If you focus on what you Don’t Want over the next several weeks, you’re going to be miserable, because you’ll be wallowing in everything you’re going to have to Give Up in order to Grow into What you Want. If you focus on your Pain about having to Give Up what you Don’t Want but you like better than the Unknown, that’s fine – but Witness it and Embrace it. Put All of your Attention into the center of your Pain, and leave it there until the Pain melts away. Or step back and “You poor Sweetheart” yourself to Death.
This is, after all, a colossal Ego Death. Re-read our Full Moon readings, Heavy I and Heavy II. The World is Changing fast, and even when we stand up our arms aren’t long enough to reach the cord to ring the driver to let us off. Focus on What you Want to Create, be Loving and Gentle with every Resistance you encounter, be especially Loving and Gentle with your Grief about what you’re Giving Up, but stay Present with the realization that what you’re Creating will be far better than what you’re Giving Up.
Remember that Confusion is the first Stage of Growth, it means that your rigid mental structures, which are the intellectual rationalizations for your Limiting Beliefs, are starting to break down. Try to avoid talking yourself out of Confusion. Don’t forget Curiosity. “I Wonder how the devil we’re going to pull this off!” It is WE – we’re in this Together! Curiosity is next to Love, as both eschew Judgment, and we know that Love is greater than Hope or Faith.
If you have notes from Steps One or Three or Four or Five, set aside as much time as you can spare between now and March 1, and between now and March 8, to work on these more. Use your PIAVAs when you get stuck on something; see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava/ if you need a review. If What you Want is important to you, the time you spend on this will be more important than that.
Not only are the relevant Changes happening in the Unconscious, but they’re shifting the Future, and most of us most of the time aren’t able to see either. There will be plenty of time for Planning, Doing, Executing the details of our Manifestations as we go forward. Now is the time for PIAVAing the Big Picture of What we Want our Manifestation to look like, and most of all, Lovingly and Gently Letting Go of all of our internal obstacles to Receiving what we Really Want.
We see the 22 February Full Moon working already, with certain well-known Bullies kicking sand in the face of the Pope. Well, okay, “he started it” – with a more subtle form of Bullying. Quite a comedy, actually. A Full Moon is about Illuminating what was previously kept in the Dark, and you can expect a good deal of Bullying to be “called out” here, Pilgrim. Like John Wayne in Liberty Valence, Bullies are heroes in American folklore. Americans worship Confidence, in more ways than one, alas.
At the Full Moon the Sun is bang on 2007 OR10’s (Uninvited Unconscious Material) Initiation of Nessus (Revelation of Privilege and Abuse) at 3 Pisces, “Petrified tree trunks lie broken on desert sand” (which is exact on 26 February). It’s Trine-Bridged by Hylonome (Merging or De-Merging with an Archetype) and Quincunx-Bridged by Makemake (Manifestation), leaving Hylonome Waxing-Square to Makemake. The Makemake-Hylonome Initiation took place in late September 1988 at 4 Virgo, “Black and white children play together happily” – we’ll take that, thanks.
The asteroid Atropos (Mortality) Opposes Makemake, creating a Hylonome T-Square (Even though the gains of Greater Consciousness and De-merging with an Archetype are substantial, all losses must be Grieved). Venus Sextiles Atropos, making a Finger of Yod focused on the Full Moon at 4 Virgo – the same interracial playground as the Makemake-Hylonome Initiation of the prior paragraph!
One could make a very good case for interpreting the current splash of Racism and Bullying as a final purge of obsolete ideals. John Perkins has just updated his Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, and his fifteen new chapters echo Naomi Klein’s Shock Doctrine. John makes it clear that the Lizards are using their media to divide the US population in order to create straw Enemies that they can then exploit even more. If we compare Bernie’s success so far with McGovern’s progress in 1972 (following the Pluto-Uranus Initiation), we’re ahead of the game, as we should be.
Neptune (Spirit and Community) Initiates Ceres (Sustainability) the day before the Full Moon, at 10 Pisces, “An aviator pursues their journey, flying through ground-obscuring cloud,” clouds of media manipulation, where it’s a front-page headline every time The Donald disgusts himself with another dump. This Initiation Opposes Orcus (Release from Karma) and is T-Squared by Centaur Asbolus (Intuition) – more Illumination.
Pallas (Boundaries) also Initiates Mercury (Communication) on 21 February, at 11 Aquarius, “During a silent hour, a man receives a new inspiration which may change his life” – more Changes. Mercury-Pallas and Vesta form the foot of a Quintile Yod focused on Jupiter, implying growing Awareness of Unconscious Beliefs leading to Expansion of Consciousness. The North Node isn’t involved in the Q-Yod, but it’s certainly Conjunct Jupiter, implying an Expansion into our Missions.
The Full Moon is also Triseptile to Venus and Biseptile to Saturn, bringing Magic into a Focus on our Core Values.
The Drama around this Full Moon will probably become increasingly shocking, but you can expect what is Revealed to be cathartic and ultimately positive.
We wrote this as part of a client’s Solar Return reading, but, liking it, we’ll generalize and anonymize it, and repeat it here…
The central themes revolve around two Questions…
- I wonder what I’m scared of?
- I wonder what I should Do about this?
We want to carefully avoid seeking Answers to the Questions; we want to let the Questions hang in mid-air for a minute, then Change the Subject. They aren’t Questions meant for the mind, but meant as prompts for the Intuition, which won’t Answer them until the mind gets out of the way. We can Ask the Questions anytime, whether we’re scared or not, and whether we’re wondering what to Do or not.
There is likely to be a goodly amount of Unconscious material coming up for us this year, and it could be very Confusing. These questions may help organize the material in productive ways. The bottom line is that we’ll be using this emerging material to Intuit the sources of Unconscious Beliefs that constrict our Vision of the Future, and when we recognize that the sources are not Present Moment and Let Go of these Limiting Beliefs, we’ll Rocket ahead surprisingly quickly.
The downside would be to either continue to Believe that the sources of the Fears and Beliefs are Present Moment, or to get lost in the Emotional turmoil of the non-Present-Moment Dramas that created the sources, which probably revolve around unearned and abusive Privilege. There is actually Power in getting lost in these Emotions, but only for a few minutes, and only if we can do it with one hand firmly gripping the Present Moment, so we can step back out of the Drama.
Once we step out of the Drama, we can be Compassionate with the people who were trapped inside it. We may find ourselves temporarily Identifying with the person or people who enjoyed Privilege, Identifying with remorse about the abuse perpetrated by those who enjoyed Privilege, or Merging with the person or people who were exploited by those who enjoyed Privilege – or Identifying with all three! Regardless of our Identification, though, none of those people were Us.
We Live in the Present Moment, and those Dramas were not in the Present Moment. Since those Dramas have long since run their course, we don’t have the Power to Change them. They may be accompanied by Feelings of Hopelessness and Powerlessness. We do however have the Power to Change the Present-Moment Unconscious Beliefs that may be somehow connected to those Dramas.
There are certainly parallel Dramas being enacted in the Present Moment, but, once Liberated from those Unconscious Beliefs about Hopelessness and Powerlessness, we will see that we Do have the Power to shift any Present-Moment Drama that we may be involved in – and we’ll be blown away by the extent of that Power.
If we’ve suffered under Unconscious Beliefs about Powerlessness, we’ll be initially scared of Power, and clumsy with it. Don’t judge yourself for these Fears and lack of Practice; they’re to be expected. We’ll be very surprised at how quickly we develop Skill and Confidence with Power, especially this year, when our Power to Manifest what we Want is greatly enhanced.
- I wonder what I’m scared of?
- I wonder what I should Do about this?
If we can continue to Ask these Questions, and continue to eschew the temptation to let the mind try to Answer them, then our Intuition will Guide us Effortlessly. At times it will feel like we’re “stumbling into” situations of Grace, because our Intuition will be out there ahead of us, clearing a path for our Instinctual Action.
Remember, we are not from here; we came here to help Heal the Planet, and we each Chose a Limiting Belief to work on. As Souls we voluntarily entered a simulator where we were programmed to Believe that the Unconscious memories and Oaths embedded in the Limiting Beliefs, were our memories and Oaths. They aren’t.
They aren’t anyone’s. They have no more Individuality than a Cat pouncing on a Mouse. They are historical artifacts, Archetypes that are completely impersonal. In their historical Time they were useful Habits, adopted by many and used to their advantage. With enough “reps,” they became an Energy Field in their own right. Habits are such that once Created, they don’t die a natural death when their utility is spent, they become Archetypes instead.
It is up to outsiders like us to immerse ourselves in these Energy Fields, Witness them Compassionately, Empathize with the Souls who have been their captives (including us, temporarily), and then Let Them Go. It’s like encountering a Ghost, someone caught between Life and their next Adventure without the means to move on. We grant the Ghost Permission to be done with it and move on; till they met us they did not know that moving on was possible, so Permission is all it takes.
These Archetypes of Privilege and Abuse that we’re dealing with, are literally Ghosts, completely impersonal Ghosts. Without Volition, they do not know that it is possible to reformulate and move on, to reorganize their Energy into new Habits that are relevant and useful to the Present World. They can be reformulated into Energy Fields of Equality and Collaboration, so badly needed on this Planet at this time.
It is our role as Energy Workers to set this Reformulation in motion, to bring the Unconscious Beliefs into Consciousness where we can Disidentify with them, Appreciate them for their Value to their own history, Honor ourselves for our Willingness to be swallowed by them so we could poke holes in them to Allow ourselves to Breathe, and move their Energy forward into constructive Patterns.
It is as though we stand facing a threatening Windstorm, full of Privilege and Abuse. We reach up and grab a Gust of Wind in both hands. Holding it, we turn around and massage it like a snowball, turning it over and over while Breathing into it our Sacred Intentions of Equality and Community and Collaboration. Then we throw it forward, where it rejoins the Wind but forever Changed. Looking around, we see that there are thousands of us, catching and Transforming and throwing, till the entire Storm Breathes Equality and Community and Collaboration and Renewal into the Landscape.
Here at the First-Quarter Moon we’re still under the spell of our Seven-Rayed New Moon Fairy Star Grand Septile. Six of the points remain…
- The Centaur Asbolus (Intuition)
- Uranus (Yintegrity)
- The Sun (Essence)
- The Centaur Hylonome (Disidentifying with a Archetype and Mourning its Loss)
- Asteroid Juno (the Edges of Consciousness)
- Jupiter-North Node (Expanding into our Mission and Deepest Desires)
In a word, a Grand Septile means that Magic Is Afoot.
We also still have a Grand Cross, implying that Motivation and Energy are available. The Grand Cross joins the Fairy Star at the Jupiter-North Node Ray. The other three corners are…
- The dwarf planet Chaos (meaning Unlimited Potential, not Disorder)
- Chiron-South Node (the Opportunity to get hung up in our Olde Bummers, and the Opportunity to Let them Go)
- The asteroid Lachesis (one of the Greek Three Fates, she was the one who measure out how much rope you had till you ran out)
Our chance to stretch the rope, in other words.
And, just for good measure, a Grand Sextile. Grand Sextiles are fabulous for Creating; we could use it to Create a new Reality, for instance. It’s interesting that the Grand Sextile and the Grand Septile don’t share any planets. But we can use the Magic of the Fairy Star to clear away impediments to our Motivation to Create a World closer to the one we Want to Live in. The Grand Sextile does share two corners with the Grand Cross, which is always a good sign. So the Grand Sextile connects to the Grand Septile through the Grand Cross, another good sign. Lachesis and Chaos are the corners that the Grand Sextile and Grand Cross share. The other four Rays are…
- Lilith (Self-Sovereignty and Yindependence)
- The asteroid Klotho (another of the three Fates, namely the one who weaves the fabric of Life); interesting that asteroid Arachne (Grandmother Spider, Klotho’s equivalent in the Hopi Worldview), along with asteroid Hopi Herself, and asteroid Sappho (She who sings the Praises of Love)
- The asteroid Vesta (Unconscious Beliefs) and the dwarf planet Eris (New Insight from the Unconscious)
- The asteroid Kassandra (the prophetess who was cursed to never be Believed)
What a Story our Twinkly Friends in the Sky weave for us. Does it matter if anyone Believes us? Kassandra tried to warn everyone in Troy that their Karma would be upon them if they didn’t heed. And whaddayaknow, it was! They were overcome by Archetypes that they didn’t know how to escape from. Fortunately, we do know how. If nothing else, we can use our Sacred Intent; Maria shows us how…
The 8 February New Moon Opposes our new favorite asteroid Hopi, and continues for the next several weeks the Energy we talked about in https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2016/02/04/my-new-favorite-roid/ – namely “What all this means, is that any projects we started last week, or start in February, will fly like a rocket! Full of Motivation, full of Love, full of Ease and Grace, and full of natural Effortless Alignment.“
I still remember 1980 – when Hopi was Discovered – vividly; the Hopi Discovery chart was the chart we all lived under in June 1980. My Life was totally transformed. I did things that still amaze me, far exceeding my normal Limits. I was for more Optimistic, Proactive, Extroverted, Willing to take big Risks, Curious, and Innovative than before or since. I left a steady job at a prestigious University, and started the business that still today allows me the free time to provide this Seva to anyone willing to read it.
In 1980 it was not about overcoming Fear; it was about Feeling Safe enough to break free of traditional Limits Effortlessly. Sedna is still Stationary, so we may have an additional opportunity here to Love our Karmic Fear-Limits into becoming our greatest Allies, adding a booster to our rocket. This isn’t about Ego, it’s about Fun. Exploring new Territory, Doing things you’ve never done, making yourself Available and Allowing yourself to be Open to whatever Shows Up.
It may not provide the Recognition and External Validation we’ve been craving all of our Lives because that Unconditional Love Birthright of ours was Denied to us as infants. But it’s not about Braving Up and Faking it till we Make it, either. It’s about Feeling Safe enough that we can put ourselves out there in public without needing the External Validation, because we’re just Exploring. Angels Fly because they take themselves Lightly.
The New Moon Grand Sextile spans 15-20 Degrees of the Yang (Air and Fire) Signs – not quite close enough to make it Feel like we’ve arrived in “Real” Time Heaven, but plenty close to light a big Fire under any projects (or people) born under it. And of course any New Moon chart is the template for the four weeks that follow it. Conjunctions expand the hot zone to 25 or so degrees. The Grand Sextile includes…
- The New Moon at 20 Aquarius, “A large white Dove bearing a message” – which in itself is pretty hot.
- Asteroid Hopi at 16 of Leo, joined again by asteroids Arachne at 19, and Pandora and Sappho at 21 Leo.
- Saturn at 15 Sagittarius. Saturn is also the focus of a T-Square across the Nodal Opposition, which we’ll talk about soon. If we stretch we can include dwarf planet Ixion at 26 Sagittarius, which we may as well do, to honor their upcoming Initiation. Ixion Initiating Saturn after all implies that The Most Important Thing is Embracing our Abandoned Genius. It occurs on the Ides of next February at 26 Sagittarius, “A flag bearer in a battle.” We’re in the dregs of the current Cycle, Initiated 1 November 1984 at 18 Scorpio, “A path through woods brilliant with multicolored splendor.“
- Dwarf planet Chaos at 19 Gemini. Chaos implies Unlimited Potential, not Disorder, though of course it may appear to be Disorder to the Eye that is blind to the Potential. Chaos is also the focus of a Diamond Star, but we’ll talk about that in a minute.
- Vesta-Uranus (recently Initiated) at 18-19 Aries, stretching to 23 Aries if we include the impending Eris-Uranus Initiation, which occurs in early June 2016 at 24 Aries, “Blown inward by the Wind, the curtains of an open window take the shape of a Cornucopia.” Eris Initiating Uranus means that we will no longer be able to Deny the Soul’s impulse. The current Eris-Uranus Cycle, in its dotage, Initiated in April 1927 at 2 Aries, “A Comedian reveals Human Nature.”
- Lilith at 19 Libra, streching to 25 Libra if we include Haumea. The impending Haumea-Lilith Initiation occurs March 28 at 24 Libra, “A Butterfly with a third wing on its left side.“
The Grand Cross in the Hopi New Moon chart is Mutable, connecting the Saturn-Chaos Sagittarius-Gemini Opposition with the Nodal Opposition (with Jupiter on the North Node and Chiron on the South Node) at 20-24 of Virgo-Pisces. This is the core of the chart, and implies that The Most Important Thing here is to Pay Attention to the Unlimited Potential available, as it will Expand us into our Deepest Desires and Allow us to Witness and Lovingly Embrace our former Limits, thereby Recovering the Hidden Skills which are necessary for us to Complete our Mission in the Lifetime. This is worth repeating…
The core of the Hopi New Moon chart is that The Most Important Thing here is to Pay Attention to the Unlimited Potential available, as it will Transform and Expand us into our Deepest Desires and Allow us to Witness and Lovingly Embrace our former Limits, thereby Recovering the Hidden Skills which are necessary for us to Complete our Mission in the Lifetime. In other words, Shoot for the Moon!
This introduces two other impending Initiations – North Node-Jupiter and Chiron-South Node. The South Node crosses Chiron on 18 March at 22 Pisces, “A prophet carry tablets of the New Law is walking down the slopes of Mount Sinai.” That’s pretty heavy. Jupiter crosses the North Node on 24 June at 17 Virgo, “A Volcanic eruption,” which Rudhyar explicates as “The explosive energy of long-repressed contents of the [Un]conscious.”
Rudhyar says [Sub], but we know better, though I’m sure for some folks [Sub] will be more appropriate. As a reminder, the Subconscious is Taurean Freud’s Dungeon where we’ve stuffed all manner of disgusting krap, while the Unconscious is Leonine Jung’s Treasury where the Dragon guards the Jewels that will complete our Wholeness – what we call our Hidden Skills, hard-won Talents from “previous” Lives that we Deny because they’re tied to our Held or Frozen Emotions, aka our South Node. Alternately, you could see it as the collapse of the Veil that separates us from complementary Parallel Lives.
With thanks to a reader for the introduction, here’s an interesting commentary on “long-repressed Unconscious contents,” from Genia Haddon’s Body Metaphors (p.18)…
“Where a quadrant [Masculine Yang, Feminine Yin, Feminine Yang, or Masculine Yin] is largely undeveloped, repressed, or unconscious in its functioning, abrupt reversals between under- and over-energizing of that mode are likely. This is because rejected aspects of human nature do not go away.
“On the contrary, when banished from conscious inclusion, they continue to operate in the larger, nonconscious psyche, secretly gathering to themselves life energy (libido). Periodically, this energy builds to the point of discharge, temporarily overwhelming the conscious personality with the rejected content, until it again falls into the background of the psyche.”
Having a Volcano, we have to ask where 2007 OR10 sits, since that’s its signature. It’s still tightly Conjunct Nessus and Ceres (recall they co-Initiated on 4 February), and four Degrees away from Neptune (more recent and impending Initiations!) on one corner of a tight Asbolus T-Square, Opposite Orcus. Which tells us that Our Hidden Skills will be accessible to our Intuition. Also worth repeating…
Those very Hidden Skills will be accessible through our Intuition. Trust it this month, even when it seems silly or stupid. If it seems dangerous, Cancel-Neutralize-Upgrade or Tap Out or Theta-Heal your trepidation, PIAVA complete Safety, and proceed cautiously.
Theta-Healing recommends itself, because after we close our eyes and roll them up, do our “God/Goddess, Creator of All That Is, I Command that [our list of requests complete with all the adjectives and adverbs desired]” and our “Thank you, God/Goddess, It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done” then we can pause and add “Show me,” and we may or may not see a vision of Grace, or feel an Emotional snapshot of what else we need to add on the next round.
For instance, we might Ask to “Let Go of All Inappropriate and non-Present-Moment Fear, Lovingly, Gently, Rapidly, and Completely, while staying Present for any Real dangers” and then we might be shown that some Appropriate Present-Moment Fear or Real danger remains. Then we would have to go back in and Command that [What we Wanted] “be accomplished in Complete Safety” or the like, then see or feel what happens when we Ask, “Show me.”
A second indication reinforces the Availability of our Held Emotions and Hidden Skills – the Eris-Vesta Initiation on 18 February in 23 Aries, “A pregnant Woman in light summer dress,” implying that whatever’s still Hidden will be lightly covered!
In the New Moon chart a second would-be Yin Grand Sextile has only four Rays – Jupiter-North Node at 22-24 Virgo, Mars-Juno at 14-19 Scorpio, Pluto-Venus-Mercury at 17-24 Capricorn, and Chiron-South Node at 20-24 Pisces – though our Stationary Sedna sits at 25 Taurus, leaving only Cancer as a potential Vacancy. This is the same span of Degrees as the full Grand Sextile, though the Sensitivity is not close enough to call it a Grand Unx.
A Grand Unx is twelve planets equally spaced around the Zodiac.
What is within Orb, in addition to the Grand Cross, are two Diamond Stars – Venus-Pluto, and Mars-Juno. And three of the four corners (all but Saturn) of the Grand Cross are Diamond Stars. We’ll get to these, and the Neptune Initiations, in our next installment.
Here are some of the details about the Asteroid Hopi Discovery chart…
Hopi’s “natal” Grand Sextile is within four Degrees of Sensitivity or Orb, and doesn’t rely on anything newer than Pallas. It spans 20-24 Degrees of the Dynamic Signs (Fire and Air). The six Rays are Sun in Gemini (with Venus at 25 Degrees), North Node-Makemake-Asbolus in Leo (with Juno at 17 Degrees), Pluto in Libra, Neptune in Sagittarius, South Node and 2007 OR10 in Aquarius, and Pallas in Aries.
The Grand Cross is in 17-24 of the Fixed Signs: Juno-North Node in Leo, Uranus in Scorpio, South Node-OR10 in Aquarius, and Chiron in Taurus.
A Cardinal T-Square in 19-22 Degrees focuses on Moon-Mercury in Cancer, across the Opposition between Pluto in Libra and Pallas in Aries. We can make it into a Grand Cross by adding the asteroid Amor at 23 Capricorn.
A Mutable T-Square in 21-24 Degrees focuses on Saturn in Virgo (joined by Mars and Haumea at 17 Degrees), across the Opposition between Sun-Venus in Gemini and Neptune in Sagittarius. We can make this T-Square into a second Grand Cross by adding the asteroid Niobe at 20 Pisces.
More to follow.
If you do nothing else today while Sedna is Stationary, watch this video of Nick Ortner interviewing Wayne Dyer…
You may have to give up your first name and email address, but Nick doesn’t send out more than one or two emails a week, and they’re all worthwhile. If you do give up your email address you’ll get instructions for watching the 8th Annual World Tapping Summit later this month, which I recommend highly even if you’ve been Tapping for years.
If you don’t want to do that, try going through YouTube instead…
I don’t think you’ll need to provide any info that way – but watch out! The interview may convince you to take up Tapping and sign up for the Summit anyway!
As our Chief Asteroid Officer Elizabeth points out, the chart of tomorrow’s Sedna Station is fascinating and very Powerful. We’ll go into detail about that in a minute, but for now let’s skip directly to the punchline. The key to the chart (in the sense that it unlocks the Energy in the chart) is an asteroid named Hopi, after a group of Native Americans descended from the Aztecs, whose worldview is based on total reverence and respect for all things. To me, that’s a great start.
When you equally space four planets around the Wheel of the Zodiac, it’s called a Grand Cross. The essence of the Grand Cross is Motivation. Normally, when two planets are a fourth of the way ’round the Wheel from each other, it’s a Challenge. We call it a Challenge to Mastery, because it Motivates to constant improvement, though seen through the Perfectionist’s eye, it often feels Frustrating.
But when you position four planets in this way, they’re in Balance, and we simply don’t have time to indulge the Perfectionist’s eye, because we’re too busy scurrying from one Challenge to the next that we seldom stop to think about it. So the Grand Cross is the ultimate in perpetual Motivation. Most Grand Cross people are Superachievers.
If you equally space three planet around the Zodiac, it’s called a Grand Trine – Trine as in three. The essence of the Grand Trine is Grace; we often refer to it as “Dumb-Luck” Grace, because it flows so effortlessly and automatically. Remember those people you grew up with who were “naturals” at something? You may have had to work your butt off at it, but to them it was as natural as Breathing. Those are the Grand Trine people.
Till they figure out that other people have their own natural and acquired Skills, a Grand Triner can even be a bit arrogant, thinking “this is so Easy – what’s wrong with them?” They usually outgrow that pretty early, as soon as they’re involved in a Team and realize that everyone has their Role.
You know those people who Accomplish so much that you can’t comprehend how they do it? Well, some of them are just good at taking credit for other people’s work. But some of them were born with a Grand Cross AND a Grand Trine. There’s a fellow who dropped out of Stanford on his second day there, started PayPal, sold it, bought a disused GM plant and started making fancy electric cars, and now he launches satellites for NASA on his homemade rockets – successfully!
They say he knows as much about rocket science as the experienced engineers he hires. His next act will be to reduce the cost of space travel by 99%, on his way to colonizing Mars. He has a big Grand Cross and three Grand Trines in his Nativity. These “Grand” Configurations are the Cat’s Meow in astrology – if you want to be the Successful Extrovert your Mother always wanted, that is. The “Grand” Configurations are there for you – you don’t have to Work at them. The represent prenatal Alignments in your Psyche that makes Life easier.
For the last week we’ve been experiencing a Grand Septile – seven planets equally spaced around the Loop in a Seven-Rayed Fairy Star. The essence of such a Grand Septile is Magic – Timing, really, knowing when the moment is right to Act with the utmost Power and Effectiveness without wasting any of your Energy. Our Stanford-dropout rocket-scientist friend has most of a Grand Quintile too – five equally space planets arrayed around the Zodiac – Mastery of Learning.
When you have six planets equally spaced around the Circle, it’s called a Grand Sextile, and its essence is Harmony and Ease. Not Work, but Love. Like the Grand Trine, it symbolizes Grace, but not dumb-luck Grace. Rather, it’s about taking the first step to start Energy moving in the direction you want it to move. It’s the Patron Configuration for our adventures with PIAVA. A Grand Sextile has two Grand Trines embedded in it.
The Discovery chart for this asteroid Hopi, my new favorite asteroid, has both an Grand Cross and a Grand Sextile in it, plus a third Grand Trine – an excellent Energy for Manifesting total reverence and respect for all things! And the chart for Sedna’s Station tomorrow has a Grand Cross and a Grand Sextile – if you include the asteroid Hopi! Hopi completes the Grand Sextile. Do you remember what was in the bottom of Pandora’s Box, that didn’t fly away when the lid came off?
Oh, and did we mention that the asteroid Pandora is there with Hopi too? What a “Coincidence”! Along with the asteroids Sappho and Arachne. Arachne is particularly appropriate, since in the Hopi Mythology it was Spider Grandmother who wove the Universe.
What all this means, is that any projects we started this week, or start Thursday or Friday or this weekend, will fly like a rocket! Full of Motivation, full of Love, full of Ease and Grace, and full of natural Effortless Alignment. If we’ve invested any time and Energy into Embracing the places where Fear arose, that will amplify our Endeavor even more.
Now it’s time to remind you about our usual format here. Left-justified bold italic type is meant to communicate with anyone. If you know a little astrology, or if you want to learn some by osmosis, then read the indented “normal” type – we talk more about the actual astrology there. If we need to define any technical astrological terms, we’ll do it in doubly-indented italic type. We use the Fuchsia type for emphasis. So now let’s talk about the actual astrology…
The Grand Cross in the Sedna-Station chart includes an Opposition between dwarf planets Chaos and Ixion (the Unlimited Potential of our Abandoned natural Genius), Square to the Nodes. Jupiter is on the North Node, and Chiron on the South (Drop your Karma and Expand your Desires by Reframing your bummers). For additional Motivation there are also an Asbolus T-Square across the Neptune-Orcus Opposition (an Open Window into our Limiting Beliefs), and a Moon-Venus-Pluto T-Square across the Opposition between Lilith and Vesta-Uranus (We can Manifest like Gangbusters by using our Yindependence and by PIAVAing Alignment between our Unconscious Beliefs and our Soul’s Purpose).
In the Grand Sextile, Hopi-Arachne-Pandora-Sappho at the Midpoint of Leo is Trine to Saturn at the Midpoint of Sagittarius and Vesta-Uranus at the Midpoint of Aries (We Create Reverence and Respect for All Things by Trusting our Instinct and Refraining from intellectualizing our Goals). This Grand Trine is Sextile to the Midpoints of the Air Signs – Lilith in Libra, the Sun in Aquarius, and Chaos in Gemini (It will be a great time to find our Community). As the corner where the Grand Cross and the Grand Sextile meet, Chaos – symbolizing Unlimited Potential – rules the chart. In rocket science, the Sky is not the Limit!
Stationary Sedna itself, in Taurus, sits in its own Earth-Sign Grand Trine with Mercury in Capricorn and Jupiter-North Node in Virgo (We Let Go of many Obstacles by Undefining Ourself). Chiron-South Node in Pisces makes it into a Kite (Empathy for the Orphans!). In Jupiter-North Node, of course, this Grand Trine also intersects the Grand Cross, providing a secondary focus of Expanding into our Mission and Deepest Desires.
And, five of the seven Rays remain of our Fairy-Star Grand Septile: Jupiter-North Node, Juno-Mars, Chariklo-Hylonome, Vesta-Uranus, and Asbolus.
We’ll look at the Hopi Discovery chart tomorrow.
