- We’re still in the “Now” portion of the New Moon chart (ie, the three-Degrees-of- Sensitivity part that pertains to this weekend, this coming week, and a few weeks thereafter), and
- We’re about to look at the Grace and Curiosity segments of this chart.
- In the previous post we looked at the Challenges in this Now portion of the chart.
- In our next post we’ll start to look at the “New-Projects” portion of the New Moon chart (ie, the six-Degrees-of-Sensitivity part that pertains to any new projects we’re Beginning, including the New Ego Timeline we’re Birthing with the 13 March Station of Klotho.
So, the Grace in the Now portion of the New Moon chart…
First, paradoxically, Fear and Anger are our Friends here. Remember that the purpose of a Yin Gate like the one we’ve been Enjoying, is to Teach us to Accept Paradox, and not try to Squeeze it into Either/Or boxes. If we Strive to Eschew Judgment, which we need to do if we are to move “onward and upward,” then we have to Realize that Everything is at times our Ally and at times our Challenge.
In general, a Full Moon represents a reasonably-friendly Contest between our Paternal Programming and our Maternal Programming. There may not be one-to-one relationships between Paternal Programming and Paters, and between Maternal Programming and Maters, as we could have gotten either sort of Programming from literally anyone. In general, our Paternal Programming is Rules-based and Clear, while our Maternal Programming is Situational and Fuzzy. The former is an intellectual interpretation of the Spiritual, and the latter is more Emotional and Grounded in the Body.
At a Virgo Full Moon like this one, the roles are Confused. We’re looking at the Emotional side of the Paternal, and the Medusal, apparently-Destructive side of the Maternal. Our Paternal Programming is especially Confused in this one, because it’s facing Despair, having to make Choices in unfamiliar territory, and Feels like it has very little wiggle-room. In these circumstances, where our normally-Reliable Archetypes are failing us, Fear and Anger are natural Reactions to the Confusion and Disorder.
So we have to follow Daniel Scranton’s advice around Fear and Anger…
And then Choose to Relate TO our Fear and not FROM our Fear, and Relate TO our Anger and not FROM our Anger, to use Stephen Levine’s Guidance. You can use Poor-Sweethearts if you want – “You poor Sweetheart, you’re really Feeling Confused/Scared/Angry, aren’t you.” Or any other method of Emotion-Bending and Mind-Bending that works for you.
Yes, this is very Convoluted. That’s the whole point. And from the Perspective of Expanding (or even Exploding) our Perspectives, it’s one hell of a Teaching if we can stick it out and Avoid the Temptation to revert to Certainty.
Whoa, you’re thinking, “That’s Grace?” Yes, incredible Grace. In this Rebirth we’re turning ourselves Inside-Out, moving our Vulnerabilities to the Outside, in the form of Openness to the Unexpected, and moving our Protections to the Inside, in the form of Trust that this process with which we have no Current-Lifetime Experience, is Safe for us. And this Teaching is an excellent Lesson in exactly that. Without that Trust, we don’t Grow.
Intense. We’re looking at Sun (Paternal Programming) in Pisces (Exploring the Limits of Emotion) Conjunct (Merged With) Chiron (Despair and Miracle), Pallas (Boundaries), and Moira (Fate), Opposite (Dancing with Duality) Moon (Instinct and Manifestation via PIAVA) in Virgo (Deconstruction of the Ego), with the Opposition Trine-Bridged (Graced) by Sedna (Fear and Anger) in Taurus (Interpretation of Meaning).
I think that’s enough for one sitting, don’t you? Especially if you actually do the homework, We’ll continue tomorrow.
