4 July IX – Love Is All There Is II

July 2, 2017

You may have noticed that the Sappho-Klotho Stations and the Sedna-Moon-Nodes 4 July Adventure are fifteen Degrees or half a Sign apart.  While fifteen Degrees is the 24th Harmonic, too big to fit in the Major Arcana, a Sign and a half is an Octile, and four and a half Signs (135 Degrees) is a Trioctile.  Octiles are about Adjustment or Rebalancing, and Trioctiles are about Adjustments that promote Love with Wisdom.

And more importantly, two Trioctiles to the same planet produce a Mjölnir, symbol of Lightning or Illumination.  With lots of planets in both the 24-30-Degree Sedna Complex chart and the 8-18-Degree Sappho-Klotho chart, there may be Mjölnirs lurking…And lo, there are four.  A Mjölnir is formed when a third planet sits at the Far Midpoint between two planets that Square one another.  The third planet offers Insights into the Challenges presented by the Square.  For instance…

  • We may gain Insight into how Self-Love Allows us to make a Permanent Habit out of Embracing our Pain – by Poor-Sweethearting perhaps (Sappho-Klotho Informs Ceres Square Chiron)
  • How can we keep our mind from Wandering, or Avoid Accepting Victim Status, when someone Attempts to Power-Over us and we aren’t sure how to Speak Up Effectively?  Maybe by evaluating our Options – none of which are Promising – to see which one Diminishes our Life Force the least? (Mercury-Varuna Informs Lilith Square Neptune)
  • We all have loads of Giving-Away-Our-Power Habits.  How can we turn those around?  Maybe by looking at the World through the lens of our Yintegrity (Uranus Informs Karma Square Lilith)
  • How can we Let Go of our Limiting Beliefs?  Following Daniel Scranton’s recommendations at is one way (the South Node Informs Sun Square Jupiter)

4 July IX – Love Is All There Is

July 2, 2017

Earlier in the year we Experienced a Paradox School (Yin Gate) between Fear (dwarf planet Sedna) and Self-Love (asteroid Sappho) and a Paradox School between Fear and Rebirth (asteroid Klotho).  We wrote about that at the time; for instance…

Now Self-Love and Rebirth are Lit Up Strongly again, but in a very different way – both Sappho and Klotho are Stationary (Strong) at the same time, namely just as we’re diving into this Sedna-Moon-Nodes (Fear-Instinct-Karma) 4 July Adventure.  Klotho’s namesake was the first of the three Fates.  She was in charge of “cutting the cloth” from which a new Lifetime was sewn.  Dwarf planet Haumea’s namesake was Pele’s daughter, a Fertility Goddess.  She also signifies Rebirth, and she also is Stationary during our 4 July Adventure.

So, as we’ve been detailing over the last many posts, while the Sedna-Nodes T-Square and the Sedna-Moon-Nodes Grand Cross will present many Big Challenges, they’re part and parcel of a process of being Reborn into greater Self-Love.  The Sappho and Klotho Stations are only four Degrees and less than a day apart, which is more than enough to consider them simultaneous.  Their Day in the Sun looks like this…

There’s a lot going on here, but it doesn’t fall into a single coherent Configuration.  Some of the more important elements of this version of the 4 July chart…

  • The Rebirth Adventure is about Reaching Deep, thoroughly Embracing whatever or whomever you find there, and using its Energy to propel yourself Up and Out of your Least Favorite Emotions (the Stations occur at the Midpoint of Scorpio, across the Pisces-Aries Duads)
  • Expect a lot of Emotion, though it will probably feel more like Letting Go than Bogging Down (Sappho-Klotho makes a Water Grand Trine with Sun and Neptune)
  • Make a Decision now that if you begin to Doubt yourself, you’ll double down with Self-Love.  Remember that Confusion is exactly what you Want here, as the first sign of Growth.  When you encounter Confusion, switch from the Material Perspective to the Spiritual (the Karma-Neptune and Sun-Juno/Chariklo Oppositions make a Golden Rectangle)
    • Rather than try to Understand what’s going on, or to Control it, Let Go and Let God/Goddess handle it (Sappho-Klotho makes a “cap” on one of the long sides of the Golden Rectangle)
  • If it Feels like you’re being propelled Too Far Out, Know that you’re Safe, and Enjoy the View (a Jupiter T-Square sits across the Sun-Juno/Chariklo Opposition)
  • Whatever Gender you Identify with in the Current Lifetime, this is about Accepting the Power of your Inner Female (asteroid Karma, Asbolus, Neptune, and Lilith form a Mutable Grand Cross)
    • The means especially your Intuition and Self-Sovereignty; Woe to anyone who tries to boss you around (Jupiter Trine-Bridges the Asbolus-Lilith Opposition)
    • The Intuition part is especially Important (Asbolus is the focus of a Finger of God on the Sextile between Sappho-Klotho and Juno-Chariklo)
  • If you find yourself in Unknown Territory and it makes you Anxious, or if you Know the Territory all too well and Hate It, Ask the Great Spirit to find or make you a Safe Space where you can go inside and Lovingly look to see what you’re Feeling where.  Whatever it is, Love it to Death.  Don’t fall for any Disease or Injury to take your Attention off your Experience (Sappho-Klotho Trine-Bridges both the Jupiter T-Square and the Karma-Neptune Opposition)

4 July VII – Solar Return and PIAVA

July 1, 2017

A reader writes…

“Is it (a) coincidence, (b) deeply meaningful or (c) a wash that my birthday is July 3?  Do you put stock in solar returns?

“I do feel like I underwent resurrection without dying when I left the my old job forever on Sept 4, 2014, yet I was in some sort of bardo until recently, when energy returned at last.  It has felt like a next life beginning in this life with no need to leave the body.  Is this birthday takeoff time? :)

“Many thanks for all your perceptions and encouragement.”

(b), Yes, Yes, and Thanks for the kind words!  I.e., absolutely Deeply Meaningful and Takeoff Time!!  And yes, I do Solar Returns and find them useful and meaningful. 

It varies with the Person, but in general I’d say that anybody with a Birthday between about June 23 and July 8 will either Take Off or Get Stuck in their Held Emotions as a correlate of the 4 July events, along with anybody who has any natal planets (especially Moon or Nodes) in 20-27 Degrees (the Haumea Station), in 23-30 Degrees (Sedna-Moon-Nodes), or in 7-18 Degrees (the Klotho and Sappho Stations) of any Sign

That would mean anybody with a Birthday between roughly the 10th and 21st, or 27th and 7th, of any month.  That would omit only about a third of us.  And that’s just a three-Degree Sensitivity window; it would be easy to justify a bigger window.  And can you Imagine anyone not having any planets in 7-18 or 20-30 Degrees?  And that’s only considering the Major Angles.  In other words, Everybody.  But you’re absolutely right, especially folks with birthdays in the last week of June or the first week of July.  You and your fellow Sun-in-the-Leo-through-Capricorn-duads-of-Cancer will Lead the rest of us out of the Wilderness.  We will welcome your Guest Blogs.

A duad is two and a half Degrees.  In Cancer we start with the Cancer duad, then Leo, etc ’round the loop till we get to the Gemini duad at 27.5-30 Degrees.  So June 23-July 8 corresponds to roughly Sun in the Leo duad (2.5-5 Degrees) through Sun in the Capricorn duad (15-17.5 Degrees).

The format of this blog makes comments fairly difficult to follow, so when comments or answers seem like they might be useful to everyone, I like to repeat them in a post.

Reader K says, about 4 July VII – Sedna in Real Time III and PIAVA

“This is precious.  I’ve read them [the PIAVA posts] all and literally feel how they feed my soul.  Very grateful.  The hard work is still to be done.”

Thanks, K!  Start with PIAVAing that “My Life Gets Very Easy Now That I Remember to Let God/Goddess Do the Work by PIAVAing about Everything” or something like that, then add “…Rapidly and Completely and Lovingly and Gently!” to every PIAVA.  You’ll be surprised and delighted!  Like having two cats in the yard…

Everything we Believe we Aren’t in a particular moment, resides in the Unconscious.  So if I Self-Identify as an astrologer, then my janitor and my lorry driver and my insurance saleswoman and my prime minister are Out There in the Not-Me.  If I’m Self-Identified with my Shame, then my Confidence and Presence and Groundedness are Out There.  If I Self-Identify with my Woundedness, then my Healing is waiting for me Out There.  Waiting to be Called, actually.  You are always Whole and In Balance, but your Consciousness can easily get Out Of Balance – and what Balances the Whole You is parked and idling in the Unconscious, your name on the keys in the ignition.

Logic is a house of cards that stands or falls on the Assumptions we start with, which are usually Unstated or Unconscious.  If we start with the Assumption that We Are All One, which is one of several “Truths” that the Traditional Wisdom offers (along with All There Is Is Now and All There Is Is Love and I Am That I Am), then Spiritual Logic tells us that Everything We At The Moment Aren’t, resides in the Unconscious.  Among that very large crowd is someone or something, usually very plural, that Knows How and is Willing to Do or Feel or Be that which we in the Moment don’t know how to Do or Feel or Be.  So when I PIAVA, all I’m doing is Connecting via the back door to The Rest Of The Bigger Me.

Just like it’s a sign of Respect to refer to a Person by name rather than Hey You!, Personalizing portions of The Bigger Me is Powerful.  So “God/Goddess, Creator of All That Is” or “Ganeshi” or any other Constellated Entity to which we might address our PIAVAs, is just a way of respectfully ringing up that part of The Bigger Me that does Know How and might be Willing to Do or Feel or Be what my present-moment Ego thinks it might need to Complete itself.

Of course my present-moment Ego might not have The Bigger Me’s Best Interests at Heart, so The Bigger Me might want to suggest alternatives (usually Easier alternatives), or provide my Ego with a Lesson Plan to bring it up to Heartspeed.  Hence the need to Pay Attention after PIAVAing and Changing the Subject, rather than Feeling Betrayed because we didn’t get what we Asked for.

4 July VIII – Converging Parallel Timelines

July 1, 2017

As they so often do, Dan and the Arcturians really nail this whole 4 July Adventure…

“When you are taking a journey like this, it is to your benefit to celebrate each of your accomplishments, each tiny step forward that you take, because this journey is a giant leap forward.

“The significance of the shift for humanity is that you are becoming a new version of yourself, and that version of yourself is a total and complete projection of Source Energy.  You consist of many different aspects that have been fragmented off over your many lifetimes of existence.  When those fragments come back together, you know yourself yet again as your higher self.  You have known yourselves as your higher self before, and you will know yourself as your higher self again.

“Part of the process of reassembling these fragmented aspects does require you to experience some pain.  There will be and there have been growing pains for each of you.  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.  And as you release your judgment of that person, you show him or her compassion and unconditional love, you invite one of these fragmented aspects back into the whole.  You reassemble all of your parts.

“If you realize that this is what you are doing, all day, every day, then our hope for you is that you can enjoy this ride a little more.  As you see all of this that you are experiencing as the reassembly of your higher self, you will have a much easier time embracing everything that this world can throw at you.  Remember, however, that it is just you throwing pieces of you back at yourself.”
