Chanticleer

January 29, 2017

This Story isn’t merely very relevant, it’s captivating!  Highly recommended!

https://druidgarden.wordpress.com/2017/01/29/ode-to-the-rooster/

I need to point out that Pluto (the Inevitable) Initiated (Started a New Cycle with) Chiron, the planet signifying Despair (when in Either/Or mind) and Miracles (when we Empathize with our Despair and begin Allowing Douglas Adams’s Infinite Improbability Drive to Power our Life).  The Chiron-Pluto Cycle spans 70-plus years, and governs our Orientation toward the Possible.

The Core Energy of a Cycle is defined by the Degree of the Initiation, which in this case was 12 Sagittarius, “A flag turning into an eagle; the eagle into a chanticleer saluting the dawn,” a Chanticleer (literally, “One who Sings Clearly”) being a Rooster.  A flag symbolizes both Nationalism and Identity.  Eagle flies high and with Her Clear Vision sees New Perspectives.  And Rooster Salutes the Coming of the Light!

The Chiron-Pluto Cycle is currently just past the Sextile, 60 Degrees, which signifies Grace After We Take the first Step.  This is early in the Cycle, and at this stage the Energy is usually Underground, busily subverting all of the remnants of the Olde Energies it’s replacing.  So I don’t expect this to be the Dying gasp of the Patriarchy, quite yet.  The Waxing Square (90 Degrees) occurs in July 2027.

Fight Song

January 29, 2017

I continue to be blown away by the Channeled Energies, for example…

Resist the temptation to add more negative energy to world conditions, but instead consciously allow love to flow to them regardless of what you are seeing.  Love is all there is and is therefore the key to and the glue of every solution.  Outer conditions are quickly lifting many into the realization that love is the only power and thus the only solution to every situation.  Many who never before considered love beyond the human sense of it are awakening.

This does not mean that you are supposed to like everything see, or that you are not allowed an emotional response, but does mean that as spiritually evolved beings you are now able and required to start looking beyond appearances and recognize that what you are bearing witness to is the final act of a powerful play about separation, one that has for eons and still is serving as an  ‘awakening school.’ 

This is Channeled by Marilyn Rafaele.  I highly recommend the whole message, as there are many other Jewels in it.  You can find it at 

https://rainbowwaveoflight.wordpress.com/2017/01/29/arcturian-group-message-january-29-2017-marilyn-raffaele/ 

Marilyn’s website is http://www.onenessofall.com/newest.html , but once she Channels another message, you won’t find this one there, and I find that she doesn’t always update her “Archives” immediately.

Every time I read these kinds of suggestions my Skeptic quietly says “It’s really the Lizards saying this, to keep you from Resisting them.”  I’ve told the story before of how, when I saw the movie The Corporation about fifteen years ago, my thoughts were all “Oh shit, we have to go back the the Trenches and Barricades again.”  Then I walked out, and as I did I could feel the Planet Breathing, the sidewalk subtly rising and falling as I walked.  In a drainage pit I saw out of the corner of my eye a seven-foot green Being who clearly sent the message that “No, we have to Meditate our way out of this.”

But the Real impact right now, in the current Sedna-Lilith Yin Gate about Recovering our Self-Sovereignty by Bringing our Unconscious Fears into Consciousness, is that what I’m calling “my Skeptic” is really an Unconscious Fear of being duped.  In a Both/And World, that Skeptic on my shoulder has a Tail, not Wings.  As long as I call that voice my Skeptic, the Fear is Unconscious.  Once I see it as a Fear, it becomes Semi-Conscious.  This Energy is very subtle, so moving it from Semi-Conscious to fully Conscious is tricky.  

When I try “You poor Sweetheart, you’re Scared, aren’t you,” the Inner Response is Denial, as the Energy steps back into the Shadows.  So I try a PIAVA ( https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava/ ), our reliable process for interacting directly with the Unconscious – “Ganeshi My Love, please Remove All Obstacles to my Safety and True Guidance.”  Then I realize that my Fear of being duped is a Fear of looking like a Fool.  So I try “You poor Sweetheart, you’re really Proud, aren’t you,” and the little devil puffs up and struts about on my shoulder.  

I get a more Honest Response when I try “You poor Sweetheart, you’re really Scared of looking like a Fool, aren’t you.”  He says “Well, yeah!” and sits down on my shoulder to chat.  He has no Shame about it at all.  Progress.  Not sure what to say, after a pause I say to him, “Hi Honey,” give him a hug, and it occurs to me to Thank him for Keeping me Safe from Humiliation all these past years during which Humiliation would put me into Shame and destroy my Self-Confidence, often for years at a time.  The Energy Surges up my Spine.  Bingo.

Here’s another Validation, from Daniel Scranton…

http://danielscranton.com/a-better-life-a-better-world-∞the-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

“You’re just going to waste energy by railing against the corruption that you see, and you are just going to get depressed if you focus on what is not working for you in your personal life.  When things are not the way that you want them to be, of course you must face the emotions that come up for you in response to those conditions, but it is much easier for you to face those emotions with your eyes closed.  

“And with your eyes closed, you are not focused on the circumstances and events in your life and in the world around you.  You are focused on yourself.  This is where you have the opportunity to enact your own policies.  This is where you have the opportunity to connect with your own dreams, your own desires.  And this is the opportunity that you have for feeling for what you are summoning forth, and then you can use that energy to create a better life, a better world, a better galaxy and universe for all beings.”

Again, I highly recommend the whole Channeling – it’s short besides.

Yintegrity

January 29, 2017

Here’s a great Channeling on how Yintegrity works…

“When you allow another to be as they are, to think as they think, and to do as they do, you are in harmony with your world.  When you are in harmony with your world, you don’t see anything that anyone else is doing, thinking, or saying as a threat to you living your life as you want to live it.

“You see, it is your belief that someone else is going to interfere with your ability to live the life that you want to live that keeps you from living it.  It is your belief that the forces outside of you have more control over your life than you do that puts you in a position where you then feel like you have to stop them, or at the very least, you have to stop them from doing something.

“When you are in alignment with the universe, when you are accepting what is, and when you are able to live and let live, the universe opens itself up to you.  Once you take your attention off of those you believe are preventing you from living the life of your dreams, new possibilities find their way to you…”

Karma Is Dead

January 27, 2017

As we’ve said many times, Karma is Dead.  When we sense the beginning of another visit to those huge Overwhelming Bummers that used to swallow us up for a year or more at a time, we have a Choice.  We can fend it off using all the tools we’ve Learned to use – Denial, alchohol, Blame, whatever.  Or we can Embrace it, Surrendering to the Emotions we hate.  If we Surrender, we’re likely to be Amazed at how quickly we move through it.  It could be mere minutes.  If it takes longer than that we can use our Poor-Sweethearts and Tapping and Cancel-Neutralize-Upgrades and Yes-Ands to help it along.

Here’s a Validation from http://danielscranton.com/the-precipice-of-the-shift-∞the-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

“Greetings. We are the Arcturian Council.  We are pleased to connect with all of you.

“Bringing yourselves to this particular point in time has taken quite a bit out of you.  You have many scars, many wounds, and carry with you many traumas, but they have all helped you get to where you are today.  And where are you today, you might wonder?  You’re at the precipice of a global shift in consciousness.  You’re at a time of awakening, not just of the human consciousness, but of the Earth itself.

“This event was planned.  It was something you all signed up for as an experience, and we want you to understand that.  We want you to know that you don’t need to earn your way to ascension.  It is not as though you suffered your way to this point in time.  Everything that you’ve experienced that has given you cause to feel pain, suffering, and so many other things has been also about giving yourselves the opportunity to have those experiences.

“You can only have those experiences from a third-dimensional interpretation of reality.  And now that you are shifting, you don’t need to continue to create those types of scenarios for yourselves.  You’ve moved past the desire even to create those types of scenarios.  We also want you to understand that this journey is not about learning lessons.  It’s not about becoming better human beings.

“It’s about giving yourselves experiences so that you can make informed decisions.  Once you realize how a certain decision feels when you make it, you then give yourselves that information, which allows you to make a more informed decision next time.  You are becoming more of who you are, and that is also something that is preordained.  It’s not up for debate, and it’s not in question.

“You’re going to always feel attracted to the Source Energy vibration that is at your very core, and how you get there is always up to you.  So now as you stand in this point in time, it is to your benefit to draw from all of the experiences that you’ve had in this lifetime and in every other to make more informed decisions about how you move forward.

“So invite in that information, especially before you fall asleep at night.  Invite it in because it is yours and yours alone, and it serves you very well to have as much of your history at your disposal as you possibly can.  Your history propels you forward into the future, the future which is also the past.  It is the past because you are returning home to the Source Energy that you originally emerged from.

“We are the Arcturian Council, and we have enjoyed connecting with you.”

Despair New Moon

January 26, 2017

In addition to being a Serpent and Hope Moon (previous posts), the 27 January New Moon (4pm PST) will also go a long ways toward Healing our Despair.

The Lachesis New Moon is Octile to Venus-Chiron on one side, Octile to Saturn-Ixion on the other side, and Trioctile to Chaos-Atropos.  If you drew that out you’d see that Venus-Chiron is at the peak of a T-Square, Square to both Saturn-Ixion and Chaos-Atropos.

As Recovering our Forbidden Genius becomes The Most Important Thing, and we begin to see the glimmer on the horizon of our Brilliant, Gorgeous, Talented and Fabulous Self, we will be Confronting Values that Limit us.  It we Trust those Values we sink into Despair, because there is No Exit for us.  When we come up against what seems to be a Value, it’s Important to Ask whether the Value springs from our mind, our Gut, or our Heart.

A Value that comes to us through the mind will be an Either/Or.  A “Good Girls and Boys don’t do that.”  That’s Morality, and it’s easy to mistake for Values.  But as we’ve averred many times, Either/Ors are always Political.  A Culture, and especially a Culture masquerading as a Religion, will try to enforce some form of conformity, and educating its children to “proper” behavior is a big part of that.  Morality keeps us in Judgment, Xenophobia, and Defensiveness.  It Divides, it does not Unite.

So if you feel Psychic Pressure to Act contrary to what you always thought of as a governing Value, that can easily create Despair.  Look to see if your Value is an Either/Or.  If it is, try readjusting your Standards so that you Expect yourself to follow that rule on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays, and Experiment with other rules or variations on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.  After a couple of months you can re-evaluate.

A Value that comes to us through the Gut is probably a Defense.  As a Defense, it may not be Present-Moment.  It will always alert you to situations that are similar to situations where you have been Hurt or Abused in the Past, whether or not the current situation is as dangerous.  Proceed Cautiously, constantly Evaluating as you go.  Ask yourself “Am I still Safe?”  “Am I still Safe?”  every several minutes.  Always know where the exit is, where there are Safe people who would Intimidate a Predator just by virtue of numbers.

A process such as this will bring your Gut Value up into Consciousness, where you can make Moment-to-Moment Decisions whether to Trust it or Stretch yourself.  Safety First – don’t try to Stretch much beyond your Comfort Zone without a thorough review of your Safety and the Reliability of your backup troops.  If there’s a Conflict between a Gut Value and Psychic Pressure to Act or Express differently, you want to ease into the space between.

A Value that comes to us through the Heart is likely to be an expression of your Soul Self.  There is always ambiguity, but a fairly Reliable indicator is that you always tear up when you see someone Expressing or Following your Value.  I read a story today about a senior living facility in Europe where six college students were given free rent to live there, to provide “fresh blood” and variety for the residents and educate the students in Empathy and Compassion (and Realism!), and I teared up reading it.  Why?  What is my Value there?

I believe it’s Community, Cooperation, Collaboration.  Of course it could just be a Contradiction to my Abandonment.  My Abandonment says that Collaboration is a pipe dream that will never endure.  If my Abandonment remains largely Unconscious, and I reach for too much Collaboration or step into it before my Abandonment becomes more Conscious, my Fears will come True – we See what we Believe.  I may not be Abandoned, I may instead come up hard against my Suffocation – and Abandon myself.

The T-Square tells us that the Contrast between the place where there are No Edges, No Boundaries, and the place where our Forbidden Genius dwells, is likely to be Acted out through Despair about how our “Values” – True or otherwise – trap us into being Unable and Unwilling to Follow Our Joy.

The problem is that our Values, whether True or not, will inevitably be interpreted as Either/Ors, and Stop us from moving into Higher Frequencies.  That’s exactly the nature of our Forbidden Genius.  Ask yourself…

What is it I Want above all else, regardless of consequences?

What is it that Stops me from Pursuing it?

You’re probably up against your Highest Values on one side of that equation, and perhaps up against your Fear or Inadequacy or Shame or Abandonment (or all of the above) on the other side.  Recognize that these are Intellectualizations of the World, not the Reality of the World.  

There are almost certain to be many people who Enjoy What You Want above all else, without giving it a second thought.  They run a different Frequency than you do.  They probably have the same kinds of Limitations as you in other areas of their Lives.  If someone does it, you can.  How?

When I come to a fork in the road on a road trip and I’m not sure which fork I want to take, I often set my mind aside and let my hands on the steering wheel make the Decision.  It may take some practice, but if you can get your Either/Or mind out of the Conflict you may be able to Allow some portion of What You Want to Descend (or Ascend) into your Life.  

This probably won’t be foolproof, as your Values will probably continue to Stop you before you Allow your Wants to Manifest.  But it may well start to break up the icejam between your Wants and your Values.  At least it’s likely to Create a Space where you have Experienced the Feelings that you Anticipate Feeling when your Wants are Achieved.  The more often you do that, the closer you are to Manifesting What You Really Want.

Another strategy is Yes-And.  Imagine moving toward What You Want, and when you hear the Yes-Buts interceding, Change them to Yes-Ands.  Yes, But what would my Mother say?  Switch that to Yes, And what would my Mother say?  You may realize that your Future could evolve in ways you never suspected were possible.  Instead of Betraying someone’s Trust you may find yourself Enjoying a Fantasy of What You Want without Betraying their Trust.  At the least, the exercise may loosen up the Boundary between the Forbidden and the Possible, between the Unconscious and Consciousness.

The full Configuration is a Trioctile Fez – two Squares separated by an Octile on one end and a Trioctile on the other, with Trioctiles for the diagonals.  A Trioctile implies a Beneficent Adjustment, so even though we’re dealing with two Challenges, they mutually encourage our Mastery of both.  

The corners of the Trioctile Fez here are the Lachesis New Moon, Pandora, Chaos-Atropos, and Venus-Chiron, which creates two Mjolnirs, one pointing at Pandora and the other at Chaos-Atropos.  A Mjolnir signifies Insight, Epiphany.  Insights about our Hope for Transcending our 3D Limitations and Ascending into Miracles.

Hope New Moon

January 26, 2017

In addition to being a Serpent Moon (previous post), the 27 January New Moon (4pm PST) is also very much about Intuition, Boundary and Belief adjustments, and Hope.

It’s a complicated Pattern.  The New Moon is at 9 Degrees (of Aquarius), in a Major Tricolor Square to asteroid Pandora (Hope) and Trine to Centaur Asbolus (Intuition) and asteroid Veritas (Truth).  But the Big Event is the Asbolus-Veritas Diamond Star.  

A Diamond Star consists of a T-Square and a Finger of God both Pointing at the same planet.  It’s considered great because the two planets in the base of the Finger form a Truss Bridge across the base of the T-Square, which serves as a “Bowl of Grace” under the T-Square.  So the Challenge of the T-Square will be much muted by the Trines and Sextiles of the Bridge.

The Opposition at the base of the T-Square is between Orcus (Making and Breaking Oaths) and Pallas-Neptune.  Neptune symbolizes our Relationship with everything larger than ourself, so Pallas-Neptune implies Adjustments to our Boundaries with our Culture and to our Relationship with Spirit.  With Orcus involved, these Boundary Adjustments will involve our Limiting Unconscious Beliefs, and probably Ego Death, as we’re Asked to Give Up long-held Beliefs about what is Safe and what isn’t.

So the T-Square will Challenge us to Trust the Truth of our Intuition more than we Trust the Truth of our Emotional Reactions.  Our Intuitions will be based in our Soul, while our Emotions will be based in our Karma, as their source will be now-Obsolete Oaths we made to Protect ourself from Abuse.  Staring down those strong Keeping-Us-Alive Emotions will constitute difficult Emotional Challenges.

The Sextile at the base of the Finger of God connects asteroid Pandora (Hope) with Centaurs Hylonome (Merging, Demerging, Grief) and Chariklo (Walking in Beauty).

Living our Lives out of Protection from Abuse requires a certain posture, where Pride is probably involved, as we Stiffen our Spine and harden our Shell against our Fear of Abuse.  We’ve Learned that Projecting Fear is a loud invitation to more Abuse, so we ossify our Outrage into Pride.  It’s a Big Step from there to the sort of Soft-Belly Vulnerability that Stephen Levine talks about and which correlates with Dropping our Masks.

We can Walk in Beauty from the posture of Pride and Outrage, but the sort of Walking in Beauty that we’ll do from the posture of Soft Belly will be very different.  Soft Belly is likely to Feel very scary and, initially, very wrong.  It will be Important not to be naive or incautious about it.  We don’t want to wander innocently into situations where Abuse will ambush us when we’re most Vulnerable but not Expecting Abuse, as that will re-Traumatize us and potentially reverse our Growth in Consciousness. 

We want to gradually and Consciously ease into Soft Belly, Opening to it when we know we’ll be Safe, and reverting to Stiff Spine and Tight Belly in situations where we may not be Safe.

Ultimately, it’s not so much Soft Belly that’s our Objective; it’s Conscious Choice.  We want to be able to Choose, Moment to Moment, whichever posture is Safest and most appropriate for the situation, and as we Learn, develop many intermediate postures.

We’ve been operating from the posture of Defense for so long that it’s now largely Unconscious.  As we Decide to step into Vulnerability (which will probably be much helped by PIAVAs, as we’ll be breaking long-held Habits), we’re Newborn.  We’ll Regress to the age we were prior to the historical Abuse that froze us into Stiff Spine, and in the Regression process we Lose Access to the Skills we Learned since, including all of our Adult Skills.  So we want to practice Vulnerability with Safe friends who are willing and able to nursemaid us, before we naively take it to work with us.

The Saving Grace here is Hope.  

Pandora opened the jar and let all manner of “Evil” out into the World.  From the Patriarchy’s Perspective, this was not at all Good, and another indictment of the Feminine.  But we know that what is Unconscious rules us without our Knowledge, while bringing it our into Consciousness offers us Free Choice – usually after an intervening Ego Death and considerable Adjustment to our Timeline.  So moving this nasty material into the Open is actually a tremendous boon for us!  And what was left at the bottom of Pandora’s jar after all the Demons had escaped?  

Hope.

As we Open to our Vulnerable Infant Self, we have no idea where this new Journey will take us.  We’re likely to be spaced out enough that we can avoid getting lost in the Fear that this Rebirth will evolve in the same Abusive directions as the earlier one.  I’ve always thought that Hope was a poor substitute for Confidence, but it’s a fine replacement for Hopelessness!

In the next installment we’ll talk about the Potential for Hopelessness with this New Moon.  Not to worry, as that Configuration is more about Adjustment than more Trauma.

Kundalini New Moon

January 26, 2017

We need to start here…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JDCjj9NNevw

The 27 January New Moon (4pm PST) Conjoins the asteroid Lachesis, named for the Bushmaster – largest, most dangerous, and most primitive of the Snakes.  Here’s some notes on the homeopathic remedy Lachesis, by veteran homeopath David Lilley at http://www.britishhomeopathic.org/bha-charity/how-we-can-help/medicine-a-z/lachesis/

“Lachesis may be viewed with the eye of a shaman to better penetrate the snake’s hidden genius.  She provides the matriarchal image of all snakes, for not only is she the largest representative of the most evolved snake family, she is also the only pit-viper that… [produces] eggs, all others… [give] birth to live young.  Hence she is the forerunner, the source and essence of all things serpentine and venomous, and the jungle is her shrine.

“This is significant.  She comes from the bosom of Gaia (Mother Earth), from the reproductive centre of the planet, its metabolic heart, the equatorial rainforests of the Amazon basin.  Here speciation is at its most prodigious; it is Gaia’s hothouse for the generation of diverse life forms – a teeming paradise – a Garden of Eden.  Deep within its steamy density lurks the awesome bushmaster, her venom charged with the creative and destructive passion of the planet.  She is the serpent of our genesis!”

Isn’t this intriguing, as we near the end of our Lilith-Sedna Yin Gate.  Lilith was the original Female Huper, who in search of Self-Sovereignty left Adam before he and his Rib allowed the Serpent to Apple them.  The Yin Gate is about accepting the Paradox that we must Embrace our Fears (Sedna) to attain our Sovereignty.  Lilley continues (hmm, Lilley, Lilith, curious)…

“In the Judeo-Christian creation myth the snake is portrayed as the evil tempter and seducer, the very personification of deception and intrigue, premeditating and perpetrating the downfall of mankind.  Aptly it is coiled round the Tree of Knowledge, or of Intellect, and induces Adam, via Eve, to partake of the fruit and lose his innocence – the innocence of instinctive, animal existence that keeps the urges and impulses within the bounds of natural restraint and in harmony with life’s laws.  

“This is symbolic of mankind attaining that level of intellectual and emotional capacity which permits ‘freedom of choice’ and custodianship of the conscience, a release, unfolding and responsibility which were bound to bring conceit and conflict.

“There is no cult more universal or ambivalent than that of the serpent.  In ancient cultures the snake was above all a magical and religious image of the creator divinity itself, or a symbol of the primeval life force, the primitive animal will, which it is our destiny to wrestle and ultimately subdue.  

“As such it embodies all man’s potentialities, the divine and the mortal, the sacred and the profane, and the contention between the two.  The snake has always been perceived as a dualistic force, a source of strength when mastered, but potentially dangerous and often emblematic of chaos and corruption when yielded to.”

“Rooted since antiquity in paradox and polarity, duality is the very essence of the snake, of Lachesis and of the subject who requires this wonderful remedy.  As with so many of us, they are in contention with themselves – the lower self opposes the higher, the animal nature vies with the human, deceit confronts sincerity, egotism struggles against selflessness, arrogance competes with diffidence and perversity challenges morality.  Conscience and desire strive for dominance.  The entire sphere of spiritual conflict is the battlefield of Lachesis.  The conflict is often heroic.”

Of course, the “subject who requires this wonderful remedy” is our Planet, Cultures, and Identities at this point in Linear Time.

“The venom from which the remedy is prepared is immensely powerful and destructive and those who require it are proportionately of an intense and passionate nature.  The Lachesis individual is ever in danger of being possessed by passions and feelings.  They are aware of the struggle within them, their labile emotions and thoughts and their unpredictability.  

“At times they feel at the mercy of their emotions, torn between the promptings of their heart and their head, between their thoughts and feelings and between desire and guilt.  If they are unable to indulge their passions or sublimate their emotions through creative release, they will have to repress them and the price is emotional or physical ill-health.

The snake in movement is a miracle to behold.  Without legs to propel it the creature flows effortlessly along, like a shining rivulet – sinuous and silent.  The entire energy of the snake is manifested in fluidity and flow.  In the course of evolution the snake withdrew its limbs to attain flow.  Its venom contains enzymes, which dissolve and digest the tissues of its prey, causing what was firm and solid to break down into a fluid form, which can flow.  Flow is intrinsic to the snake and this is equally true of the Lachesis person.  In any condition where suppression of flow or function predominates, be it emotional, intellectual or physiological, Lachesis may be indicated.”

The bushmaster is a master of camouflage.  It is a “sit and wait” predator, using its cryptic colouring to deceive and ambush its prey.  In a similar manner the Lachesis individual can practice cunning and deceit to waylay the innocent and naïve.  They don [sic] a deceptive mask to conceal their unscrupulous intentions – they are not what they seem.  They hatch plots and schemes to catch the unwary, but also to revenge themselves against those they consider enemies.”

The snake has always been recognised as a sexual or phallic symbol, implying a strong sexuality and a powerful libido or sex drive.  The sexual energy is the most fundamental energy of Lachesis and its power lies behind the intensity, the turbulent passion and the creative genius of the archetype.  It must find expression sexually, creatively, religiously or spiritually.  It may not be suppressed.”

“The sexuality is always coiled and ready to strike. Many will say that if their sex life is good, life is good.  It is part of the flow so essential to snake life; it relieves tension and stress.  The female particularly brings to a relationship a passionate romanticism and ardour, which enriches it.  She is conscious of her sexuality and its power and uses it.  She moves with serpentine grace and is able to charge the simplest action with sexual energy.”

Both the asteroid and the Bushmaster were named after the Mythological Lachesis, one of the three Fates, she who alotted the Length of Life – which we interpret as the Longevity of an Egoic Identity, since that is what we actually Experience as “Life.”  We of course, are very recently Reborn, as dwarf planet Haumea, symbolizing Rebirth, has been greatly magnified for the last several weeks.

It’s important to remember that Fate and Free Will, like all Dualities, are properties of the Observing Either/Or Mind, not properties of the Observed Both/And Universe.

There are actually four asteroids named after the Fates – Klotho who cuts the fabric of a Life, Lachesis who measures its Length, Atropos who cuts the chord when Time is up, and Moira whose name collectively symbolizes all three aspects of Fate.  And all four of these asteroids are Lit Up during this New Moon, and by extension, during the next several weeks.  If you told someone that we are entering a Fateful Month, you’d be quite correct.

Moira herself – Fate per se – is very busy flushing out all our Memories of being trapped on the Victim side of the Abuse/Privilege Coin.  This is not a Coin you want to be on either side of, actually, because Privilege is the flip side of Abuse, and the Unconscious (which, lest we forget, happens to run the show here) recognizes only Dimension, not Direction.  In other words, Victim and Perp are the same Energy, just witnessed from different angles.  We’d prefer to be off that Dimension entirely.  Avenging our Victim just makes us Victim of our own Perp.

Asteroid Moira sits in a Stellium with Nessus (Abuse and Privilege), OR10 (Irruption of Unconscious Contents), and the South Node (our Karmic Archetypes and Forbidden Emotions), Opposing the Royal Star Regulus.  The four Royal Stars all symbolized Successful Endeavors but for a downfall, each Star having its own Curse.  Regulus symbolizes Success as long as one avoids Revenge.

Asteroid Klotho, who weaves the fabric of Life, is just behind the curtain, about to enter Act Two of our Yin Gate, where Lilith/Self-Sovereignty is replaced by Sappho/Self-Love Conjoining Klotho.  Having achieved Self-Sovereignty by Being Fully Responsible to our Unconscious Fears, we’re about to assemble a whole new Timeline, or Ego-Lifetime, founded in Self-Love.

And asteroid Atropos, mistress of Endings, Conjoins dwarf planet Chaos.  Chaos, recall, represents Unlimited Potential, and Dances with our Forbidden Genius in the Golden Rectangle, promising the Sky when we fully Embrace our Uniqueness.  We explained the ongoing Golden Rectangle in https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/01/19/january-week-3-end-big-doins/ (and many earlier posts).  We interpret this Atropos-Chaos Conjunction as an End to our Limits, or Reconsideration of what we thought was Impossible.

We’ll talk about how this New Moon Challenges our Hope in the next installment.

Testifyin’

January 25, 2017

It’s important to “Testify,” as a Reader well knows…

“I just wanted to tell someone, and your blog being so helpful, I have watched this unfold via the astrology as every point of major transition happened on exact degrees of my chart.  I thought studying astrology would help me see what was coming ;)  I don’t need you to publish this comment more that I just wanted to type it with my finger on this box everyone lives in.  As I watch the world shift, to call out to one of the writers and say, ‘I’m here,’ the way people do.

“Your suggestions for self soothing have been so helpful and I’m deeply grateful for your work in this transition.  I’m still somehow trying to allow my ego to say, no hon, it’s true, it’s moving.  I’ve felt unable to communicate as Saturn crossed my Fourth Cusp, with Pluto in the 4th.  It’s funny to even say it.

“My progressed ascendant is in that 20-26-Degree zone, and right now all the major players are below deck.  I’m not sure what happens next, but I’m releasing.  Maybe I went too fast, but I’ve felt deep love.  I’m wishing I could heal everyone and cover up that abandonment and “do unto others as you would have them do unto you” thing.

“I’m going to love myself, whom I’ve missed so much.  Ok.  I just felt I needed to tell someone that.  Thank you.”

I’ve edited a little to preserve anonymity.

By the way, don’t forget that Fear + Breathing = Excitement.

January Week 3 End – Big Doin’s

January 19, 2017

Whew, made it through the Ixion-Juno Initiation last night, but not without Tapping and Thetaing and Poor-Sweethearting for most of the night.  Our next Big Event is a Station of dwarf planet Haumea, 4am PST 22 January.  Haumea is Pele’s daughter, symbolizing Rebirth – by Fire!  It’s been within one Degree of Sensitivity to this Station since early November, so it’s a big part of what we’ve been Experiencing, as we’ve been trying to get as many of our Unconscious Masters (Archetypes, Karma, and Unfinished Business, O My) wrestled to the Ground so we can get Reborn as Cleanly as possible.

Now that “everything else” Big has gone under the bridge, the Rebirth part takes Center Stage.  Well, almost.  The Reality Show is still about

Bringing our Unconscious Fears Up Into Our Awareness in Order to Reclaim our Self-Sovereignty

for another week or so.  So this Rebirth is kind of a Mid-term in some ways.

By 1 February we’re firmly engaged in Rebuilding a New Timeline or Ego-Lifetime that’s based on Self-Love.

So a Laser Focus on Noticing any Self-Judgment for the next 7-10 days will pay big dividends.

Self-Judgment includes any Values you have that are Moral, or based on Either/Ors.  As Alan Watts informed us,

It’s Harder to Let Go of Good Karma than it is to Let Go of Bad Karma.

And we need to jettison both if we’re going to be able to approximate Self-Love.

Our Self-Love needs to be Unconditional.

It’s more than fine to have Standards of Behavior, and above all to treat the other Sentient Beings around us with Respect.  But our Self-Love needs to be Unconditional.

If we betray our own Standards of Behavior, or fail to treat the other Sentient Beings around us with Respect, we Make Amends and move on.  If we’re in the Habit of indulging Guilt or Remorse or the like (or having a big Reaction when others fail to treat us with Respect, which is just a Mirror for our own Lack of Self-Love), then we need to Change that Habit to Tapping it Out asap so we can get on with the Critically Important Work we’re doing Rebirthing the Planet one Psyche at a time (our own).  What was that Meditation threshold that squelched Crime?  One Percent of the Neighbors Meditating?

There’s a Catch here.  Two days after Haumea’s Station, asteroid Hopi Stations.  Hopi is about Respect for all Things.  Those Sentient Beings we have to Respect?  They don’t just include folks who look like you (regardless of Color).  They include Critters and Plants and Rocks and Dirt and Planets and Stars and anything that your mind is able to Separate from the Background Noise and assign a word to.  Oh, and the Background Noise is Sentient too, especially the Background Noise.  That’s the Unconscious, Master over most of our Behavior, thought, Emotion, and even our Physiology.

So we can say that again now, with the context more clear: It’s more than fine to have Standards of Behavior, and above all to treat the other Sentient Beings around us with Respect.

But our Self-Love needs to be Unconditional.  How will we every Learn to Love our Pathological Genius otherwise?

Saturn, The Most Important Thing, is only three weeks and less than two Degrees away from being Initiated by Ixion, our Forbidden Genius.  

Meanwhile, the Great Amplifier Jupiter is only two weeks and a third of a Degree shy of its Station, and less than two Degrees from Haumea.  In other words this isn’t any ordinary Molt of our Identity exoskeleton (Haumea is Stationary twice a year after all), but a Big Rebirth.  And you might notice that Sedna, our Emissary of Fear as a Gift Reminder to Embrace ourself, is Stationary along with Jupiter.

So we have a Choice here.  We can be Reborn into Big Fear, or we can be Reborn into Big Love.  We Choose the latter by hunting down our Unconscious Fear with a Searching and Fearless Inventory, then Loving our Fear into Submission.

It’s a safe bet that most or all of our Judgments have their roots embedded deep in Fear.  So if you aren’t Scared this week and next, start Examining your Judgments.  What Unconscious Fears stand behind those?  That includes our “positive” Moral Judgments – “I’m Good because I…” – what Fears stand behind those?  What would happen if you chose Yintegrity  or Self-Trust instead of “Good”?

This is what we took Birth for, and why the Planet is so overpopulated with Beings wanting in on the Action.

In case you’ve lost the bigger plot, Jupiter-Haumea is one corner of the Forbidden-Genius-Recovery Golden Rectangle that encloses our Sedna-Lilith Recovering-Self-Sovereignty-by-Embracing-our-Fear Yin Gate, which is about to morph into a Building-a-New-Lifetime-Based-on-Self-Love Yin Gate.  And of course the huge Yintegrity work we’ve been doing since Time As We Know It Ended in 2012, is another corner of the Golden Rectangle.
