Excerpted from the previous post…
(2) We’re used to thinking of Saturn as having crisp Edges and Defined Boundaries. But this Saturn Station is a little different. Have you noticed more things moving out of the corner of your eye, and there’s “nothing” there when you look in that direction? How about the Spiders. What’s being Defined here is that the Veil is thinning yet more. Spider Grandmother weaves the Web of Reality, and She’s busy making adjustments. More about this later.
(2) Neptune Initiating the South Node, as it did in January 2000.
Okay, it’s later…
The 1/1/2000 chart suggested Heavy Traffic between Consciousness and the Unconscious, which we interpreted at the time as the “Loss of the Veil.” The Veil separates what we regard as “Us” from what we regard as “Other,” and separates what we regard as “Reality” from what we regard as “Not Real” or, if our Reality is more Open, what we regard as “the Other Side” – that which we know to be Real, but about which we know not much.
The 1/16/2000 Initiation of the South Node by Neptune occurred at 4 Pisces, which is about heavy traffic on an isthmus.
I recommend the movie Ghost (Whoopie, Demi, Patrick), and the third volume of Ursula Le Guin’s six-volume Earthsea Trilogy (The Farthest Shore) as excellent sources that collaborate my Experience, Intuition, and Book-Learnin’. All of which are thoroughly Enjoyable. There are many sources on Near-Death Experiences and on the “Little People.” And we shouldn’t neglect Robert Moss, starting with The Three Only Things.
We’re in the dregs of the Void phase of the current Neptune-South Node Cycle, but the new Cycle is obviously (to me at least) on its way in. This one is about Flying Blind, which I interpret as Trusting our Intuition more than our Knowledge.
The New Cycle doesn’t begin till 3 October 2016, at 10 Pisces. Neptune remains Retrograde till 19 October. Since we use the Mean Nodes, they’re always Retrograde, so we don’t get a multiple crossing.
Of course I advocate Trusting our Intuition in most situations anyway, but it’s particularly relevant when in New Territory, as we are now. As Ursula says, “Rules Change in the Reaches.”
For those of us who were programmed to be “evidence-based” in our approach to Life, the Universe, and Everything, there’s one additional note that must be added. Suppose your Knowledge indicates one Direction and your Intuition another, and you Choose to follow your Intuition – and it proves to be the wrong Direction. Time to get a couple of chairs and have a talk with yourself.
First question for this interview: “What was your Real Objective?” Switch chairs before you answer. You may be on the brink of a Big Discovery about how you Relate to the Unconscious. We didn’t mention it explicitly in the previous post, but Easy Revision of our Beliefs is part of item (8). When our Beliefs Change, our “Assemblage Point” and our Identity shift, and new Channels open between our Consciousness and the Unconscious.
At the very least, you may have been moving toward Conflicting Objectives, and you need to stop and do one of Dr. Kim’s “Yes-And” exercises, or follow Dr. Perls’s original suggestion and simply Ask yourself, what’s the Positive side of each of your Conflicting Objectives, and how can you reorganize to Collaborate with yourself toward Win-Win.
Or, if you were on a conceptual map where the virtual street follow a N/S-E/W grid and your Destination was to the virtual northeast, your Knowledge may have wanted to start to the east, while your Intuition may have been pointing out to you that east will work, but only for a little while, then you have to turn north. Maybe it wasn’t your Objectives that Conflicted, only your route. No matter where you’re going, you always have to Ask frequently, “Is this still the right Direction?”
All that may be more than enough, but if you aren’t fully Engaged in following those threads, you could Ask “What have I Learned about my Intuition?” “That it was wrong” is not a valid answer – if you get that one, Change it to “That I need more Practice with it.”
It’s also relevant to Ask, “What have I PIAVAed lately?” This could well be part of a Pay Attention phase from a PIAVA. Remember that you’re PIAVAing all the time, whether you’re Consciously assembling a formal PIAVA or not. Just as an example, last time you said “It’s Cold in here,” was there an implied “I Wish it was Warmer” underneath it?
