Raising Our Vibration

July 16, 2017

Consider this…

Which I’m sure is essentially true, though of course it’s only one Viewpoint.  Reality is like a Valley, that looks quite different when you’re looking down from a different one of the surrounding Hills. 

Or like the Flower-covered Tehachapi Mountains between Bakersfield and Barstow in California.  From the Valley they look like Mountains, but once you get to the “top” you realize you’ve just landed on a higher plateau – not what I usually think of as a “Mountain,” as there is no “Other Side” for the Bear to see.

But Rappaport’s blog post is a condensed version of Naomi Klein’s Shock Doctrine, and as John Perkins’s Confessions of an Economic Hit Man points out, it’s a Dance that’s repeated constantly all over the World. When viewed from that Hilltop.  It’s an important Perspective, worth remembering.  But it’s not the only one. 

In the US, a student of Goebbels’s is running the same agenda more insidiously, repeatedly and often successfully sold as exactly the opposite of what it is.  As Individuals seeking Liberation in this environment, quite simply, we’re screwed.

Until we Raise our Vibration.  Easier said than done?  Conjure up a Hot-Air Balloon, and let it rise over the middle of the Valley, higher than the surrounding Hills.  Now you can see the Other Side of the Mountain, even beyond.  E for Expanding is one of the silent letters in PIAVA.  If we’re waiting around before we Ascend, until everyone else is ready to go with us, we’re never going to have a big enough Balloon.

Better to sell kits so everyone can make their own Balloons.  You can franchise the business to the other Valleys.  You’ll need it after your brown-shirt business fails because everyone already has theirs.

That’s really just about all there is to Raising Your Vibration.  Of course we need to Differentiate it from Denial, but Eris – Revelation of What’s Been Denied – is Strong as we speak, and Lachesis – which Grants us the Power to Begin and End Patterns as we Choose – is as well.  So it’s easy to add the term to our PIAVA

“I Wonder how it will Feel when I Raise My Vibration without indulging Denial.”

Duration and Revelations

July 13, 2017

Duration is a funny concept.  It’s not about Beginnings or Endings, but being the space between them it has a lot to say about Beginnings and Endings.  Asteroid Lachesis is about Durations, and it’s Lit Up (Stationary) until 18 July, so I wouldn’t be surprised if a lot of things about Beginnings and Endings are coming up in your neighborhood, like they are in mine. 

Dwarf planet Eris is about Revealing what’s been Denied, and it too is Lit up (Stationary) until 20 July.  So we can Expect to see new Truths Revealed around Beginnings and Endings over the next week, just as we can Expect to see a lot of Changes in how we handle what we don’t like to Talk about, things we Start Talking about and things we Stop Talking about.

We’ll be writing more about all this very soon.

Total Solar Eclipse I

July 13, 2017

The Eclipse itself isn’t until 21 August, but it’s a Biggie, so we’ll start reviewing it early.  The Sun is Totally Eclipsed on the north-central Oregon Coast (Lincoln Beach and environs) just after 10am PDT.  It then spans the USofA, racing “backwards” across Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska, Missouri, southern Illinois, western Kentucky, Tennessee, and South Carolina before splashdown in the Atlantic at McClellanville SC just before noon PDT. 

While the path of Totality is only 100km wide, the Partial Eclipse covers all of North and Central America, the North Atlantic, and the northern portion of South America.  Totality lasts two to three minutes if you’re on the “Central Line,” or path of greatest Eclipse.  Being as close to that Line as you can get will give you the most Profound Total Solar Eclipse Experience.

The Eclipse itself occurs in 29 Leo, a Degree zone we’re quite familiar with.  It Squares (Challenge) Sedna (Fear) and makes a Grand Trine (Much Grace) with Uranus (our Soul Self) and Pholus-Quaoar (Being Fully Responsive to our Survivl Instincts).  It makes a Square Fez (two Squares separated by Trines and Sextiles, which are Resolved by the Diagonal Quincunxes) on the Quincunxes (Curiosity) between the Eclipse (Illumination) and Chiron (Healing Despair), and between Sedna and Pholus-Quaoar. 

The Symbol for Leo 29 is “A mermaid emerges from the ocean waves ready for rebirth in human form.”  Rudhyar reads that as “The stage at which an intense feeling-intuition rising from the unconscious is about to take form as a conscious thought.”

The Challenges here are potentially being Overwhelmed by the Illumination of our Fear (or in some cases Anger), and Despairing over the magnitude of the task of being Fully Responsive to our Survival Instincts.  What if your Survival Instincts are a flashback to being a Jew in Germany in 1939.  Do you have the Courage to get out while you can?  How do you Decide whether it’s a True Intuition or “just” a flashback, or both?  Or a flashforward to 2050 when the Planet is awash in camps for mostly starving refugees from flooded lowlands?  Your Survival Instincts may sound completely crazy.  Can you, Will you, Trust them?

But there are Blessings.  First, Yintegrity comes to the Rescue, if we’re Willing to Trust that.  And second, Curiosity can Rescue us as well.  It’s not about Logical thinking, Planning, and Executing, it’s about PIAVAs.  “I Wonder how my Fear and my Survival Instincts can Collaborate to move us and the Planet Forward,” for instance.  Or “God/Goddess, thank you for Illuminating my Despair.  Please help me Poor-Sweetheart it into Productive Action.”  The Life Force (Varuna) can also Rescue our Despair, with a PIAVA something like Imagining Surrender to an autopilot, where we Allow the Life Force itself to inhabit our Body and Act of its own Accord to Improve our Future, without Conscious Intervention from our Ego.

This segment of the Eclipse chart is pretty straightforward.  A separate segment, in 21-25 Degrees – another Degree zone we’re quite familiar with – is much more complex.  We’ll take up that segment next.

Collective Narcissism

July 9, 2017

Here’s a thought-provoking post…

Those of us who aspire to some form of Enlightenment or Ascension or just…

“…sit so patiently
Waiting to find out what price
You have to pay to get out of
Going through all these things twice”

are certainly as vulnerable to Collective Narcissism as anyone. 

We always need to remember that the rest of Us aren’t Less Than, just Other Than.  Ultra Eric mentions Nationalism as just one of many avenues to Collective Narcissism, but it’s a favorite for Warmongers of all stripes (who are obviously Inferior to us).  One of the defining characteristics of this Century was established on the eve of 1/1/2000, when Pluto Initiated Chiron at 12 Sagittarius, “A flag turns into an eagle, the eagle into a chanticleer saluting the dawn.” 

A Flag is the symbol of Nationalism, and a good candidate to symbolize any other sort of Collective Narcissism.  Chanticleer is a fancy name for Rooster (who does deserve a fancy name, whether they’re part of our own Collective or not).  And Eagle represents Perspective, as in…

“Once, while sailing on thermals, a mountain eagle saw a lovely shiny object far below, but as he swooped down to inspect it, it lost is luster and he lost track of it.  He spiraled up again, and was watching the ground for movement when he spied that shimmer again.  This time, he found several objects to home in on se he wouldn’t lose the beautiful object, but once again he failed to see it when he swooped low.  He left off searching for the object, but kept it in his thoughts all night long. 

“At dawn’s earliest light, he was up in the sky again, searching.  He knew now that he would need help finding the object, but he didn’t know whose aid to enlist.  The crows and other birds always drove him away.  The rabbits, shrews, and mice were his prey.  The coyotes, wolves and large cats were his equals, but too busy with their own work.  As he thought through the list of possible friends, he realize there were none, and he felt sad.

“At that moment, the shiny object caught his eye once more.  The eagle settled on a high limb and watched the object all day.  Occasionally it wouldn’t shine, but as the sun found it again, it would bloom forth in brilliant lavender color.  By and by, through the forest came a child wandering aimlessly.  It came into the clearing and suddenly looked frightened.  The eagle watched, and came to realize the child was lost.

” ‘Ho there,’ he called to the child.  The child searched the sky for the voice, and saw only the beautiful eagle on a bare fir tree branch.  ‘Ho,’ the eagle lifted his wings in greeting.  The child was tired and too frightened to speak.  The eagle spoke lovingly to the child, and learned that he had wandered too far to return home by sunset.  They agreed the child would sleep at the base of the tree, and the eagle would watch through the night.  The eagle saw many things – bats and owls and bobcats – but not one came close to the tree.

“In the morning, the child found berries, and drank from a stream.  Just as he and the eagle were setting off to find his home, which the eagle could see on the horizon, the child realized he could not thank the eagle enough for being so kind and being his friend.  Just then, the eagle realized his friend had come to him, and he asked the boy to retrieve the lavender rock.  The boy did so, and instantaneously, the boy and the eagle were in the air, flying toward his home.”

–Collen Marquist & Jack Frasl, Crystalline Communion 2000, pp.102-3

This is how Collen introduces Muscovite, a Potassium Aluminum Fluoride Mica that, as Collen says (p.103)…

“…aids in raising [your] vibratory pattern… so that the higher self can be contacted…  Muscovite’s molecular structure… has a vacancy [that] allows [one’s Ego] to get out of the way in order to receive guidance and support.  It helps to highlight how self-sabotage is operating, and how to initiate behaviors which will result in resolution and solution of problems or challenges.  It aids in recognizing friends and placing trust in them.”

Jerry Garcia’s ashes were scattered in the Ganges on the day of a Total Solar Eclipse in 1996.

Now Till The End

July 9, 2017

While unexpected events have a way of popping up, we should get this next week “off” from Heavy astrogigs. 

The week after that we’re back to Challenges to our Yintegrity, as Lachesis (Duration) and Eris (Revelation of what’s been Denied) are both Stationary, on the 18th and 20th respectively.  We’ll be carefully weighing everything in our Lives that doesn’t work (ie, that’s still Unconscious) and everything in our Lives that needs to be Accepted or Spoken (Conscious but still Unresolved), to see if their Time has run out.  Both Stations Reignite the 24-25-Degree zone that the Haumea Station Lit Up, which we wrote up in 4 July XI – Final Rebirth (  The Stations are separated by one Sign, which forms a Twelfth-Harmonic Angle – more Pattern-Breaking.

The New Moon on the 23rd is very busy, Challenging us to Accept whatever Ego Deaths are necessary for us to Fully Open to the Life Force and allow our True Self to be Free to Express itself Confidently, moment to moment.  The New Moon is Merged with (Conjoining) Truth (Veritas), the Life Force (Varuna), and Action (Mars) in the first Degree of Leo, Inviting (Opposing) Ego Death (Nemesis), all Challenged (T-Squared) by our Soul Self (Uranus).  There are Blessings as well (Trine Bridges to Chiron and Hopi-Makemake, and Varuna enters Leo on the 24th).

Then for the rest of July our Urge to Yintegrity is Strong, as Uranus is Stationary on 2 August in 29 Aries, the same Degree Zone as the previous New Moon.  We speak of “Degrees Zones” because the Energies trigger one another – the previous New Moon at 1 Leo is Square to the Uranus Station within two Degrees, and the following New Moon Eclipse is Trine to the Uranus Station within half a Degree.  We wrote about this Cuspal Degree Zone in 4 July X – Victimhood (  Mercury is Retrograde from 12 August through 4 September.

Then comes the Total Solar Eclipse on 21 August, in 29 Leo, the same Degree Zone as the preceding New Moon and Uranus Station.  That Degree is the Culmination of the Ego.  Celebrate it well, as a Descent of Inanna follows (that is, Virgo; see Starhawk’s Truth or Dare for the HerStory of Inanna).  During the Eclipse The Most Important Thing (Saturn), the Edges of Consciousness (Juno), and Fear (Sedna) are all Strongly Lit Up (Stationary: Saturn 24 August at 22 Sagittarius, Juno 26 August at 3 Capricorn, and Sedna 27 August at 27 Taurus).

Some folks seem to be making hay with dire predictions, and this Eclipse is likely to herald more Big Transitions.  As with any Big Change, there could well be temporary Pain, but the astrology signals overwhelmingly Positive Outcomes.  We’ll take advantage of the “Time off” to write about the Eclipse over the next several days.


July 9, 2017

Everybody feeling their Infancy?  I know, Rebirth doesn’t happen on all levels for all people in all Times, and many of us are probably colicky.  I’m confidant that we’ve all stepped out of one Archetypal costume or several forever, but I don’t expect we’re all ready yet to just go around without our diaper all the time.  My three favorite Arcturian Channels all have great essays today on shedding our remaining disguises…

I recommend them all, in that order.  Marilyn (onenessofall) has a fabulous review of the nature of Karma.  A few clippings…

“You are being faced with a choice; ‘Do I really believe what I know of truth or do I not?  Based on images and news, I should be afraid, but based on the truth I know within, why should I react to the outer scene if it is illusion?  There is, never has been, nor ever can be real death.’  These words will sound shocking to some, but need to be considered by anyone serious about their spiritual evolution.”

“Powerful and sacred energies are being experienced on all levels; physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually, serving to draw all who are ready towards awakening into self empowerment.  Those who thrive on the ignorance of others, do not like this, and so continue to broadcast and promote the illusion.”

“In order to bring resolution to certain deeply embedded old energies, a soul will frequently choose to be born into a family that reflects the issue.  This serves to activate it, not allowing the individual to ignore or bury it deeply as they have done in previous lifetimes. … Karmic connections can be cleared when only one person is willing, both are not needed.”

She covers a lot more, including how to Clear Karmic Chords.

From Daniel…

The energies you are now receiving are meant to release you from the bondage of your relationship to your past.  We are not just talking about your past in this lifetime, or even your past lives.  We are talking about your past as a human collective.  Everything that you’ve experienced as a collective up until now plays a role in how you perceive yourselves and in what you believe you are capable of.”

And from Suzanne…

We, your Galactic Family, are aware that your ‘time’ in the third/fourth dimensions of reality has made most of you ‘addicted’ to sequence, as well as change occurring within a somewhat orderly and very sequential, time-bound manner.  As more and more of you are becoming aware, ‘time’ is no longer orderly, nor does it necessarily proceed within a sequential format. 

“In fact, your reality will begin to harbor more than one version of ‘time’ within the same NOW.  You have been somewhat prepared for that shift by the many different time zones that have different concepts of ‘time’ as one travels around the planet.  However, what will gradually, or quickly, occur, depending on the open mindedness … of each person, is that ‘time’ will appear to shift without any travel at all.”

“Gaia is not going wait any longer for humanity to awaken.  ALL of Gaia’s body, from the smallest atom to the largest mountain peak, is eagerly accepting the fifth dimensional resonance that is frightening to so many humans.  Why are humans frightened by this shift when all the members of Gaia’s Nature embrace it?  The answer is that Nature has NO desire to experience ‘power over others.’  Yes, the larger often ‘eat’ the smaller, or take their territory and fight over territories and/or mates. 

“However, Nature Beings do not even consider that they can dominate the planet, as humanity has been trying to do for eons.  Nature Beings realize … that all life on the planet is a Part Of the Planet.  If you separate a tree from the planet’s earth, Gaia’s earth suffers as much as the tree.”

It is this immediate and worldwide dispensation of information around the entire planet that is slowly, far too slowly, awakening the Power Within Humans.  Whether or not humanity listens, cares about, or shares this information is not as important as the fact that the information is available to … discover.  Yes, the more primitive cultures may not get that ‘memo from the Internet.’  However, the so-called ‘primitive cultures’ have always listened to … Gaia’s elementals of Earth, Air, Fire and Water.  Hence, just as ‘modern humanity’ must learn to ‘listen to Gaia,’ they must also learn to ‘listen to the primitive humans.’ ”

It is the people who can ‘communicate with Gaia’ that will be the leaders, and the people that can ‘make more money’ will be lost in a reality in which ‘money’ has no purpose … because ‘money’ is a third dimensional concept that was created by third dimensional humans who could not find the true value within their own Hearts and Souls.  The ‘primitive tribes’ … divided up the crops and/or the fish so that every member of their tribe would receive the amount that they needed.  This division was not based on who caught the fish or grew the crops, as that was the mission of certain members of the tribe.”

Suzanne also has more to say.  If anyone is new to the terms “Power Over” and “Power With” or “Power Within,” I recommend Starhawk’s Power 101 textbook, Truth or Dare.

Pluto Full Moon

July 8, 2017

Jealous for Attention, Pluto inches its way toward the 20-30-Degree zone that’s been so Prominent for the last while.  As the designated illuminator, the Full Moon obliges, crossing Pluto two hours after it Opposes the Sun.  The Full Moon occurs at 9pm PDT on 8 July.  A Pluto Full Moon is likely to be Intense.  Whatever we’ve been trying to suppress itches to come forth, and we’re out of Calamine.  Actually, Seaberry Oil works better than Calamine, but it’s still not as strong as Pluto.

This itch is Bigger than it otherwise would be, because Jupiter (Bloating) makes a T-Square (Mastery through Challenge) across the Full Moon…

Of course we’re likely to Experience the Challenge before (if ever) we Realize the Mastery, and the Challenge will be Overwhelm.  We are, after all, Newborns, so hitting us with a Big Challenge to suddenly Channel tons of Energy may not feel fair.  But it’s what we’re Here for, and there are plenty of Blessings to go with it, so Bring It On.

Look at all those blue lines (Blessings)!  Someone took the “Bowl of Grace” under those recent Diamond Stars, and turned it over, dumping the Blessings all over the place.  The blue Truss Bridge across the top of the Full Moon Opposition is built from Self-Love (Sappho) and Inertia (asteroid Karma), suggesting that Pluto will be torpedoing our Self-Sabotaging Habits, which is Great, though it’s likely to be Disorienting – another Challenge.  Being forewarned, we can look forward to the Liberation.

There’s also a Neptune Trine Bridge across the bottom of the Full Moon Opposition.  Neptune represents anything and everything that’s larger than our Self-Concept, including Culture, Godhead, and Goddessheart.  The useful characteristic of Neptune is that it represents Confusion when seeing the World through Material eyes, but Clarity when we use Spiritual eyes.  The impact here is that when we’re threatened with Jovian Overwhelm, switching to the Spiritual Viewpoint will provide us the Perspective we need to remain Grounded.  That is, not “What’s Happening,” but “Where am I Going, and how does being Here help me get there?”

And Self-Love (Sappho) Connects to both Life Energy (the Sun) and the Universe (Neptune) in the Big Blue Triangle (Grand Trine or three planets equally spaced), which symbolizes Dumb-Luck Grace – the Universe will Cooperate Fully as long as we stay in Self-Love.  When it doesn’t, check to see where the Balance point is between your Ego and your Self-Love; Narcissism ain’t Self-Love.  We don’t even need to Ask for the Grace, though we may Want to use Asking or other PIAVAs to direct the Grace into the places we want it most.  That should work as long as Self-Love predominates.

And Lo, the Truss Bridge, the Neptune Bridge, and the Grand Trine combine to make five sixths of a Grand Sextile!  We’ve just been studying those, haven’t we.  When we have a Vacancy in what would otherwise be a Major Configuration, the Vacancy Rules the show, and We have to provide the Vacant Energy Consciously in order for the Wheel to turn and Release its Fortune.  What Energy Here?  The Vacancy is Taurus 17, “A battle between Swords and Torches.”  Sword symbolizes Mind, while Torch – Fire – symbolizes Spirit.  Eschewing battle (ie, Given a Dimension, Choosing a Direction), what do we Aspire to instead? 


So here’s a third Challenge – to Balance Mind and Spirit.  Or, we could say, Mind and Heart.

Notice too that there’s also a network of lighter lines in the chart, Connecting planets in the Full-Moon Degree that are in independent Configurations.  The most Powerful of these is the red box with inscribed red X, which we call a Grand Cross.  A Grand Cross means Work, but if there are blue lines to any of the corners, it means Easier Work – we could even Enjoy it.  And Yes, there are blue lines to all four of the corners!  The Work is about combining Old Habits (asteroid Karma), Intuition (Asbolus), Confusion (Neptune), and Self-Sovereignty (Lilith) into something desirable.  Those are the Dimensions; what about the Directions?

Well, we get to Choose those, so why not See Through Old Habits, Improve our Trust in our Intuition, Embrace our Confusion without Intellectualizing it – Balancing Mind and Spirit, eh? – and Support our Self-Sovereignty.  That would make an excellent PIAVA – maybe something like “God/Goddess, Creator of All That Is, I Command that I Learn to Lovingly and Gently Choose Alternatives to Old Habits that don’t Serve me or my Planet, Trust my Intuition more, Enjoy the state of Confusion, and Trust mySelf Fully.  It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done!  Thank you God/Goddess, Creator of All That Is!  Show me!”  That’s pretty Blissful.

And the blue Blessings?  The biggest one is the big blue Golden Rectangle (Golden because the ratio of the long sides to the short sides is the Golden Angle Φ – which symbolizes Cooperation with Nature).  That would be about Resolving the Dualities between Old Habits (Karma) and Confusion (Neptune), and between Free Choice (the Sun) and Pressure to Act a certain way (Moon-Pluto).  Anybody here still have Difficulty Resolving Dualities?  I know we all get Stuck on specific heritage issues at times, till we Remember that we’re in Either/Or and just step out of it into Both/And.

Then there’s the Major Tricolor (three planets three, four, and five Signs apart) between Asbolus, Neptune, and Jupiter.  We read this as The way to settle Ambiguity about an Intuition is to Wonder how we might Expand our Perspective – and then of course, as with any PIAVA, Change the Subject and Pay Attention.  This is an important part of Learning to Trust our Intuition.  Finally, there’s one Finger of God (a third planet at the Far Midpoint of two planets in Sextile, or, the green wedge), pointing at Asbolus from Sappho and Moon-Pluto.  Which says that Pluto isn’t going to let us Forget to Embrace the Truth of our Intuition.

4 July XI – Final Rebirth

July 6, 2017

The final Act in the 4 July play is the Station of Haumea (Rebirth) at 9:30 pm PDT 6 July, and it’s a Boon.  Its chart features a glorious Grand Sextile (Great Grace; the blue hexagram of six evenly spaced planets, containing within it two Grand Trines and three Golden Rectangles) and two Diamond Stars (Challenge made Easier; a T-Square [red triangles], and a Finger of God [green wedges], focusing on the same planet)…

The Diamond Stars are a little hard to distinguish, so I’ve drawn them separately, the Mars-Veritas Diamond Star in heavy lines and the Lachesis Diamond Star in lighter lines…

So what does it all mean?  That our Rebirth is awash in Blessings.  Let’s look at the pieces…

The Mars-Veritas Diamond Star means basically that the Truth will Out

  • A Mars-Veritas Cardinal T-Square says you can’t hide who you Really Are any more; what you Create will Out you.  The base of the T-Square consists of the Rebirth itself (the Haumea Station) and the Revelation of what’s been Denied (Eris).  Here’s a Scary example, but a good example of how the disguises are finished…

  • The Grace: All-Healing (Panacea), and Reparenting of our Forbidden Genius (Mother Moon and Father Saturn Conjoining Badboy Ixion).
  • The PIAVAs in the Mars-Veritas Finger of God are on the order of “Great Spirit, please show me how I can Best Support Reparenting my Genius” (Mars-Veritas Quincunx Moon-Saturn-Ixion) and “Ganeshi, please Heal All Hesitation to Speak and Act my Truth while keeping me Safe” (Panacea Quincunx Mars-Veritas).

The Lachesis Diamond Star says that Time Has Run Out for many things… 

  • The base of the Mutable T-Square (context of the Challenge) is about that Change involving Reparenting of our Forbidden Genius, and Limits (Chaos).  That is, we’re done with Limitations, including Limits – Self-Imposed or Otherwise – on our Unique Personal Genius.  No more Holding Back. 
  • The Grace is our Rebirth and our Trust that our Unconscious Beliefs are being reprogrammed to Support our Raison d’Être (Eurydike-Vesta-North Node).
  • The PIAVAs in the Lachesis Finger of God are something like “I Wonder how I can help make this Rebirth as Comprehensive as Possible” (Lachesis Quincunx Haumea) and “God/Goddess, I Trust that your Reorganization of my Unconscious Beliefs will Serve Me and You and the Planet Fabulously” ().

The Grand Sextile means that its six elements collaborate very efficiently.  We may have to take some Action to Initiate things, but once we do, Grace flows.  In many cases – the Grand Trines – Initiatory Action isn’t even necessary…

  • The Air (Mentality) Grand Trine consists of Effortless Collaboration between our Rebirth (the Haumea Station), Healing (asteroid Panacea), and Limitlessness (dwarf planet Chaos)
  • The Fire (Spirit) Grand Trine involves Easy Grace between Naming Truth (Eris), Reparenting the Soul of our Genius (Moon-Saturn-Ixion), and Honoring the Trustworthiness of our Path (Eurydike-Vesta-North Node)

The places where we can lend our Ego Strength to the Effort are the six Sextiles…

  • Abolishing Self-Criticsm (Rebirthing Trust in our Path; Haumea Sextile Eurydike-Vesta-North Node)
  • Dealing Constructively with Fear (eg Tapping, Theta) when we are called to Stretch beyond our Comfort Zone (Eurydike-Vesta-North Node Sextile Chaos)
  • Letting the Consequences of Truth Stand without soft-pedaling them or Protecting anyone (Chaos Sextile Eris)
  • Intending that our Habits that Lack Candor be Healed (Eris Sextile Panacea)
  • Praying that the historical Wounds Suffered upon our Genius be Miraculously and Instantaneously Healed (Panacea Sextile Moon-Saturn-Ixion)
  • Celebrating the Rebirth of our Hidden Genius (Moon-Saturn-Ixion Sextile Haumea)

Have a Care not to cut anyone with that jagged broken Champagne bottle, and Enjoy the Journey!

4 July X – Victimhood II

July 5, 2017

Before we launch into the 6 July Haumea Station, the final Act in the 4 July Drama, we should point out that the Grace in a Diamond Star is somewhat Conditional.  The Trines (long blue lines in the picture in the previous post) happen on their own…

  • Greater Consciousness of our Fears will lower our Self-Sabotage and incline us more toward Community (Venus-Sedna to Hopi-Makemake)
  • Embracing what we would normally Avoid will Open us to Greater Life Energy (Stationary Chiron to Atropos-Varuna)

but the Sextiles (short blue lines) that actually form the bottom of the Bowl of Grace and allow it to Hold Water…

  • Confronting our Fears as Lovingly as we can (Stationary Chiron to Venus-Sedna)
  • Assigning greater Value to Life-Enhancing Energies and less Value to our Fears (Venus-Sedna to Atropos-Varuna)
  • Channeling greater Energy toward the Collective (Atropos-Varuna to Hopi-Makemake)

require that we take the first step.  And the Finger of God tells us exactly what steps to take. 

The Quincunx (that’s Quinc=5 Unx=12 or 5/12ths of the Zodiac, or 5 Signs – the long green lines) is about Curiosity, and Curiosity, if we don’t short-circuit it by seeing it as a Problem to be Solved, is first cousin to Love, as they both Eschew Judgment.  We might even say that “Now these four things abide: Faith, Hope, Love, Curiosity; but the greatest of these is Curiosity,” as Love wilts when Judgment or any other Either/Or replaces Curiosity.

We want to Experience the Curiosity as Awe or Wonder; if we see it as a Problem and Solve it, we’ve summarily dropped back into Either/Or and blown our Opportunity for Miracles.  As with Confusion; if we try to Resolve Confusion rather than Enjoying it as a Wonder, we blow our Opportunity to Expand our Consciousness.

A Finger of God, or “Yod” – which translates to “Pay Attention!” – is composed of two Quincunxes pointing to the same place.  The “same place” is what we’re instructed to Pay Attention To, in this case Becoming Fully Responsible to our Survival Instincts (Quaoar-Pholus-Galactic Center).  We convert the Quincunxes to PIAVAs in order to Avoid left-braining or intellectualizing them, which would Freeze the potential for Miracles.  We might use something like…

  • “Ganeshi, please Remove All Obstacles to my Trusting my Survival Instincts more highly than my Fears, and Teaching others how to do the same” (Venus-Sedna to Quaoar-Pholus-Galactic Center)
  • “I Wonder how I can Lovingly and Gently Let Go of Inhibitions to my Life Energy and Be More Responsive to the Needs of the Planet” (Atropos-Varuna to Quaoar-Pholus-GC)

We’ve added more-than-Personal terms because of the presence of the Galactic Center.

Of course there are some issues which do Require Plan-Execute Problem-Solving.  As with Yintegrity, where…

To Live Yintegrity in a Yangtegrity World, we may need to minimize our Commitments, be Willing to Renegotiate often, and to Make Amends where Renegotiation isn’t possible and the Relationship is a Keeper.  To review, in a Yangtegrity like the Patriarchy, we’re expected to Do What We Said We Would, while in Yintegrity we Do What We Feel Like Doing, Moment to Moment…

we may not always have time to finish a PIAVA by Changing the Subject and later Paying Attention.  For instance, if we’re living six feet above mean high tide, we may need to prioritize starting the process of moving to higher ground, then PIAVA ways to make the move Effortless, and ways to Effectively help our fellow Earthlings (of all Orders and Species) Attend to their Survival.

  ♥    ♥    ♥    ♥    ♥    ♥    ♥ 

We also find a big “Quintile Yod” – two Biquintiles pointing to the same place (the Quintile is one fifth of the way ’round the Circle, the Biquintile 2/5th – the orange lines below) – in the Chiron Station chart.  The Fifth Harmonic and Quintile are about Learning and Teaching, and the QYod says “Pay Attention to Learning about the planet at the Focus.”  As it did in the Diamond Star, the Chiron Station also plays a supporting role in the QYod…

The Star of the QYod (as in the other Finger of Yod, the planet being pointed to is the Pay Attention To This! planet) is Vesta, which symbolizes our Unconscious Beliefs, which are often our Limiting Beliefs.  Vesta isn’t within our usual day-to-day three-Degree Sensitivity Range to be counted as Conjunct the North Node (our Destination or Mission in the Lifetime), but at four Degrees it’s plenty close to count as Conjunct for Birth purposes, and the whole 4-July Drama is about Rebirth, so we’ll count it.

The North Node Initiates Vesta, starting a new Cycle, on 8 July at 27 Leo, which is about Total Focus on Inner Spiritual Attainment.  In general, Vesta-Nodes Cycles are about Cleansing our Unconscious Beliefs.  The Vesta-North Node Cycle is about Creating new Patterns that Support our Mission, and the Vesta-South Node Cycle about Becoming Aware of Archetypes that Inhibit our Mission.  Remember that our South-Node Patterns (aka Karma) include our Held Emotions that hide the Skills we need to move toward our Mission.

So we are at the half-way point, or the Blooming, of the current Vesta-South Node Cycle, which began in June 2015 at 6 Aries, “A square with one of its sides brightly illuminated.”  So yes, our South Node Patterns, like our astrological Squares, are Challenges, and one of our Challenges has been Brightly Illuminated since June 2015, never more so than at the Present Moment.  That should be pretty Easy – which of your Lifetime Bugaboos has been most prominent over the last two years, and is most prominent now?

Based on my own Experience, I’m guessing that you’re noticing Surprising major Changes in your Response to that Pattern as we speak, and that those major Changes will greatly color the character of your 4-July Rebirth, and facilitate your Focus on Spiritual Atunement.  The idea that Spirit is something to be Attained is a bit old-fashioned.  Spirit is ever-present; it’s the Ego that just needs to Surrender to it.  Striving, as an extension of the Ego, moves us backward, in spite of what Goethe said about Wer immer strehbend.

For me it’s been Chocolate and her best bud Sugar (Organic of course, as non-Organic Sugar is invariably laced with toxic Glyphosate).  When it’s an abscess making it a Choice between Pain and Sugar, the Clear Choice is No Pain.  But otherwise, giving up Pleasure is Anti-Life.  Then there’s Moderation, always a fine idea, but the Choice between Pleasure and Moderation isn’t an Easy one without strong Incentives. 

Well, a few days ago it spontaneously occurred to me that I might be able to get away with Allowing myself the Pleasure of Chocolate and Sugar if I eat Vegetables first.  Then I realized that I could Interpret the urge for Chocolate as a signal to Meditate, without making any Conclusions about what might follow the Meditation.  I’m sure I’ve made a ton of PIAVAs about this, though I don’t recall any specifically.  I should keep a log – otherwise, how can I accurately Pay Attention?

The “foot” of the Vesta QYod is the Quintile from the Chiron Station to Pluto.  The Changes to the Lifetime Bugaboo that are so Surprising and Evident now are probably Pluto’s work, as Pluto’s processes are pretty much Mandatory, bypassing the Ego entirely.  Even without a deliberate course of Poor-Sweethearts, the Chiron corner is busily transforming the Suffering (including Guilt, which is Suffering) which our Bugaboo has brought us for the last two years, into Miracles.  I mean, how many times have you tried to shift these Patterns, and how many times has your success been marginal at best?  And now, Whoosh, suddenly there are Miracles.

So it’s a Timing issue, and a Timing issue always Asks what Septiles or Seventh-Harmonic Angles are involved, since the Seventh Harmonic is in charge of Timing.  Without searching the dwarf planets for Septiles, which would probably take a couple of days, one Septile Yod (a third planet Triseptile from two planets Septile to one another) does pop up in the Chiron Station chart, pointing at Saturn-Ixion from a base of the Septile between Venus-Sedna and Mars.  So maybe we’re getting close enough to our Forbidden Genius that they’re able to provide clues more helpful than just “Who do we hate?” since while that one’s Obvious, it’s not Easy.

We also notice a Venus-Sedna Mjölnir (a third planet Trioctile to each end of a Square) emerging from the Square between Moon-Jupiter and Juno.  So Expansive and Consciousness-Growing Epiphanies are also in order about Relationships between Fear and our Values.

4 July X – Victimhood

July 4, 2017

In his blog post on Power versus Force…

my friend Isaac George points out that I’ve missed a Station of Chiron on 1 July, at 12am PDT.  That’s a big omission, as Chiron is all about Letting Go of our Victimhood and Accepting our Power, the whole concept of which is central to the Sedna-Moon-Nodes Drama that we’re in the middle of.  The Chiron Station Sextiled Sedna, which was about to Initiate Venus.

Not only that, but the Chiron Station makes its own Grand Cross, Opposing Hopi-Makemake (Manifesting Respect for All Things) while Squaring Ceres (Sustainability) and Pholus-Quaoar-Galactic Center (Becoming Fully Responsible to our Survival Instincts).  Today’s news is full of how the US Environmental Pillage Agency is rapidly Manifesting Respect for All Profits rather than promoting Sustainable Responsibility to Survival, bringing Unhealable Wounds to everyone who can’t afford Affluenza. 

The Unconscious, which is what astrology reads, is Direction-neutral.  It shows the Dimensions of Energy (Survival) but not the Direction of it (Survival for the People OR for the Lizards).  Isaac links to an interesting article about How Power Corrupts…

The good news is that the Lizard-in-Chief hasn’t fully Corrupted the Courts yet, so some of the Pillage is already being Averted, though that may prove temporary.

As Dan & the Arcturians have pointed out (…

“What is necessary for you to bring yourselves to the higher self version is that you accept who you have been in all of your previous lifetimes, and even in your past in this lifetime.  When you encounter other individuals in your life who display traits and behavior that you despise, realize that you are face to face with one of these aspects of you.”

So yes, certainly, who among us would cast the third Stone (the EPA and astrobuss having already cast the first two).  I’m sure most all of us have Parallel Lives where we bask in our Competitive Success, and hopefully all of us have Parts of our Current Lives where we can Celebrate some measure of Competitive Success, ideally without making Loss of Empathy a Sustainable element of our Persona – “Leaving our crown in the garage,” as the Atlantic article suggests. 

In the context of our overarching Sedna-Moon-Nodes Energy, how do I, in the Present Moment, as a thrower of Stones, bask in Competitive Success, or Strive toward it, or Do I Indulge the Fear of Not Doing So?  Having been raised in the Patriarchy, when my Identity dial is tuned to Al-one rather than to All-One, do I Live in a “Compete or Die” World?  Of course I do.  And when I tune to or Imagine my All-One Identity, what is my Emotional Response?  Yes, Fear.  I have no Expectation that the World will shelter and feed me when I can’t “Feed myself” – not because of any hardcore “Frontier” mentality, but simply because of Lack of Trust.

This Crisis of Trust is actually a positive process, which we’ll get to when we consider the final stage of our 4 July Rebirth, the Haumea Station.  So when we reduce the issue to the staple of our Chiron toolchest, we end up with “You Poor Sweetheart, you don’t Trust Hupers, do you.  Do you want to talk about it?”  The Response is non-verbal, but over my left shoulder I can clearly see my terrified historical Child trembling in Fear.  That Unconscious Fear is what contributes to an outer World that Abandons the People (Us) to Cake for the Lizards.

Which brings us to another feature of the Chiron-Station chart – it contains an impending Nessus-Orcus Opposition, which was Complete at 11am PDT on 2 July.  What are the natures of the Oaths (Orcus) we Live Under that spring from Abuse and Privilege (Nessus)?  The Opposition is from Pisces (Letting Go of Emotional Baggage) to Virgo (Letting Go of Obsolete Ego Structures).  The 240-year Nessus-Orcus Cycle is about Swearing Obeisance to People or Ideals that we regard as Superior to our Identity, Deciding between yielding to Abuse or Suffering Threats to our Existence, Vowing Revenge upon our Abusers, Concluding that we must Compete (thereby Intending to Suffer Abuse upon the Losers) to Survive, and similar verbalizations and intellectualizations that get Frozen into Limiting Beliefs.

This particular Nessus-Orcus Cycle, which at Opposition is at its Flowering, was Initiated in 1982 at 4 Leo, “A formally dressed elderly man stands near trophies he brought back from a hunting expedition.”  Whoa, Colonialism writ large, which we can Choose to Interpret Optimistically as the Downfall of Colonialism – our accumulated Choices contribute to the Directionality of the Energy – and by 1982 formal European Colonialism was well into its demise. 

We could Interpret the current cycle as Nostalgia for Colonialism.   Britain, the clear Winner in the Colonial Competition (and a Competition it very definitely was), is in the middle of a very messy divorce from its semi-merger with Continental Europe, largely because of uncontrolled immigration of, among others, former Colonial subjects.  The Patriarchy itself is a form of domestic Colonialism.  A Cycle goes into serious decline after it reaches its Phitile (222.5 Degrees), but that doesn’t occur until sometime in the next Century.

The Sedna-Venus Initiation, with occurred 1 July at 2pm PDT, was at 27 Taurus, “An old Indian woman selling the artifacts of her tribe to passers-by.”  Rudhyar, a product of Colonial northern Europe, misinterprets this as “Peaceful adaptation to collective needs,” which is hardly the case.  The image is a picture of Desperation driven by Genocide and probably Hunger, to Betray the Heritage of the Collective.  “Artifacts” are bottom-line important to the Native Perspective, as they represent Connection to the Ancestors, whose continuing Support is all-important to Survival in the Present.

The Venus-Sedna Cycle in general would be about how Fear inspires our Values, and an invitation to base our Values on a firmer foundation.  We could say “When you encounter other individuals in your life who display traits and behavior that [violate your Values], realize that you are face to face with one of these aspects of you.”  Less black-and-white than Morals, and more so than our Preferences, our Values are still Either/Ors.  It’s Both/Ands that “bring [us] to the higher… version” of ourself.

When we draw the chart, you can see the strong emphasis on the Pholus-Quaoar-Galactic Center Diamond Star (a T-Square and a Yod pointing to the same place).  A Diamond Star indicates an otherwise Challenging situation made Easier by the “bowl of Grace” (the blue lines) under the T-Square.  The Challenge is that our Survival (Pholus-Quaoar) is Inhibited by Unhealed Wounds (Chiron) and failure to Respect All Things (Hopi-Makemake).  The Grace flows through Examining our Fears (Venus-Sedna) and through Seeking and Allowing an End to Limitations on the Life Force (Atropos-Varuna).
