As we said earlier, both of the last two weeks of March are Heavy. We’ve already introduced the 3/27 New Moon, at…
Our next big Adventure is about Responsibility, as dwarf planet and Centaur Pholus Stands Still at 1am PDT 28 March, five hours after the New Moon. A planet is at its Strongest when it Stands Still, and the New Moon will stretch Pholus-Stationary Energy over several weeks afterward.
I doubt that we can explain the difference between Blame and Responsibility too often. In a Nutshell, Blame looks backward to Assign Cause, while Responsibility looks forward to Change Outcomes. Yes, there may be some backward-looking to seek potential levers to facilitate Future Change, but it will be incidental.
Blame is a Universe unto itself, a Closed System. Like Cause and Effect, when you’re inside the Bubble, you can’t see out of it. People who can’t see beyond the opaque Wall of Blame often misinterpret the need for Responsibility as “New Age Guilt,” especially as it applies to dis-ease. Taking Responsibility for our own Health has nothing to do with who or what causes dis-ease. It has to do with what we do about it in the Future.
In the Greek Iconography, Pholus met his demise as a result of failing to Attend to what was in retrospect The Most Important Thing, and for taking only partial Responsibility for it. So when we look into the Unconscious for parallels to Pholus what do we find? While it may be Conscious Disregard, it’s more often Lack of Awareness itself.
If my Bones ache from eating Gluten two days earlier, it may not be easy to make the Connection. If my sinuses flush from eating Sugar, will I believe I’m coming down with a cold and, through my thoughts and Emotional response, actually Create a cold? It’s not like there are ever any shortages of cold germs – it’s my Vulnerability that can make the difference, including my Emotional Vulnerability.
With an Infinity of factors to Take Responsibility for, how do we Discover or Decide which ones to Pay Attention to, and which ones are The Most Important – especially since becoming Conscious of an Infinity of factors sounds impossible? We hone our Intuition; it’s the only tool we have that can cover the waterfront.
Long ago when I studied Time Management, the bottom line was that it was necessary to always have a handle on, and Attend to, The Most Important Thing. What they didn’t Teach, but what was obvious to me, was that in order to know what The Most Important Thing is, we need to keep our Intuition sharp. And in order to sense any relevant Intuition, we’d need to be Relaxed. So it turns out that The Most Important Thing is to be Relaxed.
For which PIAVA is well suited – if we Trust it. “The Gods” don’t appreciate it if we PIAVA the same thing over and over again without first Changing the Subject, Paying Attention, and adjusting our PIAVA accordingly. So Trusting that our PIAVAs are in the right queue is important. Luckily, asteroid Eurydike, which symbolizes Trust, Stands Still at 2am PDT on 1 April (no foolin’), so we get good practice here.
So with Pholus Standing Still our best bet may be to PIAVA something on the order of…
“Great Spirit, please Grant me Clarity around The Most Important Thing I need to Take Responsibility for, and Help me know how to do it best.”
“I Wonder how I might Always Pay Attention to my Intuition and Take Full Responsibility for Acting accordingly.”
On 31 March (2am PDT), dwarf planet Quaoar Stands Still. Pholus and Quaoar have been traveling together for a long time, and their Stations have been near-simultaneous, and near to the Galactic Center. Quaoar is about our Survival Guidance. When the World is Stable, Survival Guidance comes from the Ancestors. When the World is Changing Rapidly, as it is now, we also need our Intuition.
We’re also aided here by Saturn, which in turn Stands Still on 5 April (10pm PDT). That’s more than a week away, with two other Stations in between, so normally we’d keep our focus on the near term. But Saturn is actually Stationary as we speak, within two arcminutes of its ultimate Station. I have no doubt that this is why we’ve been called to talk a lot about The Most Important Thing, which is Saturn’s Mantra.
We don’t like to Abandon our Secondary Priorities, because they’re our Fallbacks should our First Priority encounter difficulty. But when Saturn is Lit Up, the message is that our Backup Priorities will Take Care of Themselves for a while, so we don’t need to worry about putting them on the back shelf – they’ll be waiting for us when we get around to picking them up again.
So this week the program tells us that The Most Important Thing is to Trust that all Prayers are answered while we PIAVA to have our Intuition working flawlessly to keep us Informed about what we need to Take Full Responsibility For in order to ensure our Survival, and how to accomplish exactly that.
Now, bear in mind (it’s part of PIAVA actually) that when we are ready to Receive, the Universe gives us exactly what we Need. When we aren’t ready to Receive, the Universe gives us Information about Why We Aren’t Ready. So yes, we Trust our PIAVAs, but when they don’t seem to “deliver,” we Take Full Responsibility for Paying Attention to see what they did deliver, because whatever that was, it contains the Information we need to adjust our PIAVA so we Ask for what we are ready to Receive.
Theta Healing is particularly good at this, because it can provide instant feedback, so we don’t need to wait a day or so after Changing the Subject, before we Pay Attention. A Theta Healing might be…
“God/Goddess, Creator of All That Is, I Command that I Receive Clarity around The Most Important Thing I need to Take Responsibility For, and how to do exactly that. It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done. Thank You! [Breathe] Show me!”
When you Command “Show Me!” you should See the Clarity being “Delivered” – or, you may Feel it or Know it or Hear it, or Automatic-Write it – whatever Channel your Intuition works best in. Or, you’ll See or Feel what else you need to add to your PIAVA. For instance, you might Feel a sense of Inadequacy, and need to modify your PIAVA to something like…
“God/Goddess, Creator of All That Is, I Command that I am Worthy of Receiving Clarity around The Most Important Thing I need to Take Responsibility For and how to do exactly that, and that I Receive it. It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done. Thank You! [Breathe] Show me!”
