Once again, The Donald is our role model. No, we wouldn’t want to be him, or be like him. But he’s Donald. You’re You, he’s Donald. Look at the flack he’s taking for being unabashedly Himself. That’s why we Abandoned our Genius in the first place – because Other People couldn’t stand to see it when their own Genius was so beaten down. Yes, he’d make an awful president, and yes, we can Embrace our Genius without being pathologically Narcissistic about it, and yes, he’s making a Shameful punching bag for the Patriarchy (which needs it badly), but he makes a Perfect Donald.
The difficult thing about a T-Square, geometrically, is that it’s out of Balance. It flops all over onto one side of the Sphere. It needs Balance, and the perfect Balance for it is a fourth planet opposite the third, creating a Grand Cross out of it. The Balance is so important that we call the place where that fourth planet would be a “Vacancy,” and consider it to be the most important point “in” the T-Square. The Sabian Symbol for the Vacancy in the Chiron T-Square is “A royal coat of arms enriched with precious stones: The certification of aristocratic status, at whatever level ‘nobility’ expresses itself in cultural eminence.”
A Sabian Symbol is an interpretation for a specific individual Degree.
That’s the Energy that the Universe doesn’t provide, the Energy which we need to provide, to bring the World into Balance. Remember Zaphod’s smugness? Try it on again, back to the Mirror. Go for it. How would it feel in your Body if you were The Donald? Not when he’s being pilloried, but when he’s being his happy-go-lucky self in his own Universe. Give yourself Permission to be smug, in a charming sort of way, without being insufferable. You can be Royalty, and enjoy it when everyone treats you like Royalty. It’s okay, because you’re treating everyone else like Royalty too.
We’ve experienced this completion of the Grand Cross – the Sun filled that role in mid-September, Venus around 24 August. And just to make sure we weren’t Avoiding the Lesson Plan too much, Mercury danced over it three times, in mid-August, around 11 September, and 2 October. Good example of how Retrograding is the Universe’s way to rub it in.
And now asteroid Hopi moves into that position, filling the Grand Cross, and staying there for the next ten days. Asteroid Hopi stands for Respect for All Things. All Entities, everything your mind can conceive as Separate, have Consciousness, and they are all our Equals, all Deserving of Respect. Because the Universe is Composed of Consciousness, and Consciousness alone. Suddenly it’s not just your colleagues and friends who are also Royalty, but the Bugs and the Dust Motes and the Pansies and the Gravel – each little Stone. Fortunately, Gravel enjoys being walked on, they like the way it tickles. You can hear their hoarse giggle as you walk on them.
There is Grace here as well. The budding Nemesis-Juno Conjunction (Consciousness of our Limiting Beliefs), now joined by Venus (our Values, which are Changing), Trine-Bridges the Chiron-Hopi Opposition.
