Scary New Moon

The New Moon Opposes Sedna (Fear), which of course is great, as an Opposition implies Contradistinction, so as long as we’re Awake enough to Notice that Fear is present, we can contrast it to the Reboot (New Moon) of our Identity, and Congratulate ourself for Externalizing the Fear.  And yes, that part about “Awake Enough” is our bane.  But the Window is Open.

Fear has many disguises.  It often appears as Judgment and its cousins Resentment and Competition.  It can hide behind Codependence, Abandonment, or Suffocation.  It’s the source of Separation, the Ego’s Causative Principle.  We Be after all All One.  While the mind’s view of Reality is Dual, in Real Life it’s Unitary and Multifarious.  Sounds Paradoxical, and we’ll get to that.  We can think of Fear as the equivalent of Lucifer – Bringing of Light by Creating  Contrast to Darkness.  Fear, the Absence of Love, Brings Forth Love through Contrast.  If it’s not Unconditional Love – or Curiosity, it’s rooted in Fear.

Now this is the Scorpio New Moon, and how do we interpret Scorpio?  As Fearlessness.  Curiosity gone Compulsive, Relentless Curiosity.  When you find Fear, capture it, dissect it.  Does it have a Heart?  A Brain?  When it Shits, what comes out?  Does it fly like a Bat, or a Bird?  Is it Immortal?  What Color is it?  If it Creates, what is it likely to make?  What would your Universe look and Feel like without it?  Is Fear a Quantum, or a Vibration?  A Quark, or an Atom?  A Gas, or a Dust?  Next time it comes to your neighborhood, Ask it these questions, and any others that come to you.

When Neptune was the Outer Limit of our Consciousness, Pluto stood for Fate, that which we thought we couldn’t Escape.  Then we Stretched into Pluto, and Realized there was Choice.  From Sophocles to Shakespeare.  Now we’ve found and exceeded another Limit.  Most of the other dwarf planets beyond Neptune are called Plutoids because they have a lot in common with Pluto. 

Not Sedna.  It’s in a new class of its own, the Sednoids.  We know of only two so far.  While Plutoids take hundreds of years to circle the Zodiac, Sednoids take thousands.  The orbits of the Plutoids and Centaurs (dwarf planets between Jupiter and Neptune) are controlled by the Gravity of the Gas Giants (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune), but Sednoid orbits are independent of all other planets, except the yet-to-be-located “Planet Nine.”

So here on the threshold of the next phase for Planet Earth and its denizens, the Outer Limit of our Consciousness is Fear.  When our Limits were Fated – or Fatal, we did not know Choice was possible.  There were Edges beyond which you simply Fell Off into Nothingness.  Now that we’ve seen the Infinite Improbability Machine – which is a necessary part of any Infinite Universe, our Edges are populated with Fear.  Now it’s Madness rather than Nothingness that lies beyond the Edge, where Fright Overwhelms all, the head spins around, and the Priest is useless.

If you’re finding anything other than Love, look underneath it Relentlessly, find where it’s Rooted in Fear.

The Moon-Sedna axis is the Central Axis of a Yin GateYin Gates are about Transcending the Linear or Dualistic mind, accepting Paradox, and courting Cognitive Dissonance, where we Emply and Enjoy several to many different apparently-conflicting Perspectives at the same time.  That Allows us to see more of Unitary and Multifarious Reality than the old Fundamentalist paradigms permitted.

On the map below, a Yin Gate is characterized by a blue rectangle divided in two the long way, with a green X in each half, and three intersecting red Oppositions defining the corners and  and the Central Axis…

The fundamental old-paradigm proposition is that Fear (Sedna) Opposes our Rebirth (New Moon).  Fear in all of its many forms pushes us back from the Edges of our Growth.  The Paradox is that Fear and Rebirth are Opposite sides of the Same Coin.  The Riddle lies in identifying the Coin.  Clues lie in the four corners of the blue rectangle, and their two additional Oppositions.  These are…

  • Dwarf planet Haumea (Rebirth – whereas the New Moon Rebirths on a scale of weeks, Haumea Rebirths on a scale of decades) Oppose the Stellium of Uranus (our Soul Self), and the asteroids Pallas (Boundaries) and Moira (Choice).  What Fears prevent us from Choosing to Relax the Boundaries between our Ego and our Soul?  Does that sound like Death to you?  Yes, certainly – Ego Death, the only Death there is.  The rest is Transformation and Rebirth.
  • Dwarf planet Chaos (not Disorder, but Unlimited Potential – Chaos is what Existed before the Greeks invented the Patriarchy, the sort of World where you could have Vipers for hair, and Rams could have fleece of Gold, the World that the Dualistic mind still Labors to suppress) is Opposed by the Stellium of Saturn (The Most Important Thing), the dwarf planets Ixion (our Forbidden Genius), Pholus (Responding in Full Consciousness in the Present Moment), and Quaoar (our Survival Instincts) – not to mention the Galactic Center.  That’s one Powerful Stellium!  Does it Balance Unlimited Potential?  Can you Feel the Coin in there?

The multiple Oppositions remind one of Da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man…

If you look closely, and include the two lightly-drawn green lines, you’ll see a second Yin Gate in this New Moon chart, this one wrapped around the Haumea-Uranus/Pallas/Moira Opposition.  So there are Mysteries and Paradoxes yet to unravel from our task of Choosing to Relax the Boundaries between Ego and Soul and Transcending Fear of Rebirth.  The other Oppositions in this Yin Gate are…

  • Sedna Opposing the New Moon.
  • Asteroid Atropos (Endings) Opposing Chiron – If we think of Chiron as the Unhealable Healer, then Ending this Unhealableness sounds like a great idea, even if it’s not very Mysterious or Paradoxical.  But we usually think of Chiron as the Opportunity to Transcend a Victim Space using Poor-Sweethearts.  In the Greek-Patriarchal view, Atropos are the Fated Endings.  But in our view, we look at the other side of the Coin – if we’ve got a good thing going, we can Choose not to End it.  So we would probably want to use this dynamic to dive Deeper, a la Scorpio, into TranscEnding our old views of Healing, and moving to a Deeper level of Skill.

One way of integrating all this is to Open to Ending the Limitations imposed upon us by Fear – by Noticing and Dissecting deeper and more subtle layers of  the Beliefs that constrain our Infinite Improbability Machine.  Starting maybe with our Belief that the Infinite Improbability Machine in our Imaginary closet doesn’t really work, and even if it did it would never work on our Perpetually-Frustrating unresolved Deepest Desires.  I mean, by now we’ve made so many Compromises, and so often Settled for what we thought was probably the best we could do, that it would be impossibly complicated to unwind all that, even if by some Miracle our Deepest Desires showed up on our front porch. 

How can we Manifest our Deepest Desires within the context of all of our Compromises and Make-Dos?  That would take a Miracle, wouldn’t it.  Well, would that be a Paradox?  Are we Afraid to Believe in Miracles?
