Anti-Life Beliefs 1

We’ve started a new Province in Linear Time, as on 22 October Varuna (the Life Force) Initiated Vesta (Unconscious Beliefs).  While the Big Changes we’ve been experiencing for the last month continue to percolate up through the various layers of our Psyche, I expect this new Energy to dominate till Halloween.

If we can assume for a moment that our long-term Psychic Progress is toward Wholeness, then Vesta-Varuna Cycles are about Eliminating Unconscious Beliefs that are Anti-Life.  We all have those – even the Bushel that we hide our Abandoned Genius under, and the Hesitation we have to blatantly and outlandishly pursue our Deepest Desires, are driven by Unconscious Anti-Life Beliefs.  If we think it through we’ll understand that Idealism (and almost any -ism) is Anti-Life, as it’s likely to Deny its Both/And Opposite.

The timing runs something like this…

  • 2pm PDT 22 October – Moon crosses Vesta-Varuna
  • 6pm PDT 22 October – Varuna Initiates Vesta at 1 Leo, “irruption of bio-psychic energies into the ego-controlled field of consciousness” (Rudhyar)
  • 4pm PDT 30 October – Varuna turns Retrograde at 1 Leo

The Varuna-Vesta Initiation occurs just one arcminute (one sixtieth of a Degree, or the equivalent of 24 minutes of a Zodiacal year) shy of the Varuna Station, so we can count on both Varuna and Vesta-Varuna being Strong for the whole period through 30 October.  Varuna’s been within one Degree of its Station since 16 August, so it’s been Lit Up in the background for the last two months.

Varuna operates at about the same speed as Pluto.  Their orbits run 250 years for Pluto, 283 years for Varuna.  Pluto travels from 30 “AU” (one AU is the distance from the Sun to Earth) distant in Scorpio to 50 AU in Taurus, Varuna from 40 AU in Aries to 46 AU in Libra.  Pluto is about one fifth the size of Earth, Varuna about three eighths the size of Pluto.

Varuna operates at the Cellular level, so for the next week and the next four years (the length of each Vesta-Varuna Cycle) we have the Opportunity to Let Go of Beliefs on the Epigenetic and Genetic levels, both Personally and Globally.  Of course, when Changes occur on those levels, we probably aren’t aware that “we” are Deciding or Doing anything, so we may not even know that it’s happening.

But the Changes will be Reflecting in the Mirror of our thoughts and Feelings, so we can Consciously Cooperate with the Changes, and help them permeate our Being more quickly and become more Sustainable by Acknowledging and Reinforcing them.  

In part, that means being Aware that we may have symptoms of Ego Death: Confusion, Regret, Grief, Anger, Fear, Despair, the illusion of illness as our Body moves toxins out of our Cells.  It’s Important that we Respond to these Lovingly.  By all means Comfort yourself, but stay away from symptom-suppressing drugs if you possibly can.  Use “You poor Sweetheart…” and Homeopathics and Energy Work instead.

Remember that Fear is Cold and Hard, Love is Soft and Warm.  Locate Unpleasant or Painful Sensations and Emotions in your Body, Soften around them, Warm them, put your Hand on them.  Our “natural” (or Programmed) tendency is to Tighten around Pain and approach it with Fear.  That dilates the Blood vessels and slows Healing, while Softening and Warming speeds Healing – notwithstanding the Healing Energy your Hand will direct to it from your Heart.

We may also have difficulty Relating to family or friends or colleagues if their Beliefs Change in ways that are very different from the way ours are Changing, or if they – or we – Resist the Changes.  

Bear in mind that much of what you hear people saying may be their inertial thoughts and Feelings trying to Defend who they have Believed themselves to Be.  Hear them out.  Avoid Arguing with them, as by implying that they’re wrong you could strengthen their resolve to Defend their Olde Self.  Ask them Questions if you want, but only if you can come from agenda-free Curiosity.  

The same could be true of yourself – you could “hear yourself” saying things that used to Define who you Believed yourself to Be, but in a flash of Insight you suddenly find patently ridiculous or irrelevant.  You don’t want to have any Social Ego Invested in your Olde Beliefs, unless you’re very good at telling people that you’ve “Changed your mind” or “Feel differently” now.  If you often tell yourself or others “I’m not one of those people who waffle,” you could be in trouble.

If anyone wants to Argue with you, don’t Defend; instead, Ask them more about what they have to say.  You don’t have to Agree with them.  If pressed, you can always dodge the Questions and say something like “That’s interesting, I hadn’t thought of it that way.  I’ll think about that and see how it Feels.”  Yintegrity doesn’t mean you have to make yourself Vulnerable in situations where you don’t Feel (or aren’t) Safe.  If you “have a position” on anything, you’re stuck in an Idea and in danger of missing this Opportunity to Shift on a very Deep level.

This is the Initiation of a Cycle, and the New Energy is always Strong at the Initiation – Strong and Controversial.  Controversial because those who are Invested (Egoically or financially or Emotionally) in the status quo can argue vehemently against the New Energy.  You can see the Trumpistas vigorously Defending the Olde Energy of Sexism and Racism, even as they vehemently argue against the Olde Energy of Government by the Rich, for the Rich, and of the Rich – without realizing that Trump is really planning to make it far worse.

In a typical cycle, after the Initiation the Olde Guard appears to have defeated the New Energy, as the New Energy goes underground to grow roots.  The New Energy emerges at the “First Quarter” phase of the Cycle – the one-year point in this four-year Cycle.  So a win for Clinton could seem like a victory for the Olde Guard, as in some ways it certainly will be, but a year from now we could be very surprised by what surfaces.
