Since we’re probably going to be Suffering Under or Enjoying this Eclipse chart for many Moons yet, we’ll write more about its Charms and Gifts, filing them all under “Kundalini” so we can refer back to them when useful. Just not yet; we’ve a couple of things to get out of the way first. For now…

“If Both/And is the answer to the Either/Or Pattern, what about Neither/Nor?!”
If we want to Create anything other than what we’ve been Creating all our Life, for better or worse, then we have to dredge about in the Unconscious, to see if we can find any Limiting Beliefs to Love into Oblivion. The Unconscious isn’t Limited by Duality, it’s Multifarious and Limited only by what its Infinite Improbability Engine delivers in the Moment. We recommend Both/And because, when we bail out of our Current Lifetime and look back, we’ll see that we had Free Will, we just didn’t use it much, because Patterns, Archetypes, Karma were so much more effective, effortless, and comfortable, even if we didn’t always appreciate the consequences. By doing Both/And, we keep one foot in the Unconscious, leveraging up. Either/Or Limits us to what the Ego already knows.
So if we’re dealing with Current-Moment Egohood, the Neither/Nor Duality would work fairly well. Maybe we Want Neither Poverty Nor Violence – we can strive to set our Boundaries for that. If the Unconscious happens to be listening, though, this could get us in trouble. Like all Dualities, the Asseveration/Negation Duality resolves to the Coin (in this case Judgment) in the Unconscious. So the Unconscious could deliver a couple of things in response to such a PIAVA. First, it wouldn’t hear Neither Poverty Nor Violence, it would hear Both/And, Poverty and Violence. Second, it would jump to the Coin, and hear a request for Judgment rather than Acceptance. So it could deliver what you Judge, which is what Neither/Nor is about. Does that make sense?
So rather than Neither Poverty Nor Violence, it might work better to Ask for Both Abundance And Peace.
It’s ironic and inadequate to use logic to talk about the Unconscious, when logic is a whiskey plied by connivers. But we intend no “proof,” we only tell a Story, but one we believe grows Corn (non-GMO of course).
Soulspeak advises us, in https://soulspeak2013.wordpress.com/2016/03/07/at-the-table-flowing-newly/ , to…
“Be willing to look through and beyond that which you merely ‘know’ and understand … and be willing to be empty of expecting an answer that feels familiar … allow yourself to be uncomfortable and squirm a bit … melding and imprinting with all that is newly becoming … allow the learning of a thing to fill your well and with each drop be grateful …”
As 2016 wears on, remember that Confusion is the first step of Growth in Consciousness, and that Curiosity is next to Love in Sacredness, as both Eschew Judgment.
