(1) Been insulted or offended by anyone or anything in the last few days? Still stewing on it? Are your Mirrors working? Tapping? Cancel-Neutralize-Upgrade? “You poor Sweetheart…”? Whatever part of you felt Put Down, that’s probably the protruding edge of your Abandoned Genius. “You poor Sweetheart, you felt Put Down, didn’t you” may be a Strong path to edging Her up into Consciousness, Embace, and Integration.
(2) The Pressure amps up till September 10, and it will behoove us to be forewarned about what to watch for. It’s complex; there are many flavors…
(3) This is still very much about what we’re Learning. If you don’t feel Inspired and Enlightened, PIAVA it so. “I Wonder what I’m supposed to be Learning here.” Today there’s a big emphasis on What’s Coming Into Consciousness, and on Making it Sustainable.
(4) Responsibility is NOT Blame. Blame looks to the Past in an effort to attribute Cause; Responsibility looks to the Future in order to improve Outcomes. While Cause may in some cases be useful, it’s an intellectualization, and thus usually far too narrow and unidimensional. PIAVA will work a lot better. “I Wonder what might help me feel Strong and Competent here.” “Ganesh, please Lovingly and Gently Remove All Obstacles to my Self-Love.”
(5) Be particularly Mindful of Despair or Discouragement, especially “Unconscious Despair,” or Lack of Belief in the Possibility of ever Receiving What you Want. Meet any trace of that with “You poor Sweetheart, you really feel Abandoned, don’t you.”
(6) We are again/still being Asked to Surrender our Ego Attachment to Charm and Beauty. What’s worked in the past to lubricate our Path, may not work in the Future. We’re Asked to shift our Identity from Form to Spirit. Form is incredibly Useful – we wouldn’t be here playing with it if we didn’t want the Practice. And it’s very Cloying; Form is to Spirit as Opium is to Ego. Under it’s Spell we forget who we Really Are.
We want to be Fully Present with both, but invest our Identity in our Energy, not our Form, and not Other People’s Response to us. Form and Other People’s Responses are fickle; they can Change in a heartbeat. Investing Identity in them invites Ego Death. Energy is more Constant, more Reliable. Not Doingness or physical Energy, but your Essence, the part of you that’s been Constant since your birth and long before.
(7) Don’t forget to find your Gratitude. This whole adventure could easily be a lot more difficult than it is.
(1) Dwarf planet Ixion (our Abandoned Genius) was Stationary (Strong) on 4 September. See https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2016/09/02/saturn-neptune-orcus-eclipse-ii/ .
(2) Pholus, Quaoar, Chariklo, and Hylonome are all Stationary and turning Direct between now and 10 September.
(3) The Grand Quintile (see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2016/08/30/learning/ ) is strengthening, and at the moment the Moon is joining Pluto in making a string of four serial Deciles between Mercury-Jupiter, Saturn, and Pallas, Opposing Ceres and Vesta with Trideciles and Quintile Kites.
(4) Pholus (Taking Full Responsibility) and Quaoar (Survival Instructions from Headquarters) turn Direct together on 8 and 9 September, Square to Sappho (Self-Love). They’re three Degrees apart. Quaoar is on the Galactic Center (Headquarters).
