Mercury and Ixion

There are more ominous warnings trotting about on the web (such as https://awakening5dhealing.com/2018/03/22/the-arcturian-council-message-for-awakened-souls/), but if we take it seriously, this summarizes it just as well…

“You are embarking upon a journey now that will take you through some experiences that you have set up for yourselves in order to elicit certain emotions.  When you are in the midst of clearing and processing these emotions, please keep in mind that it is a necessary part of the process, and it is better for you to do it now rather than later. ”  –Dan & The Arcturians, http://danielscranton.com/process-your-emotions-before-the-shift-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/.

We’ve already published our version of it, in the prior post.  And, many of us have already been in the thick of it for a while now.

We try to pay the most Attention here to things that happen least frequently, so the three- or four-times-a-year Mercury Stations aren’t one of those.  Nevertheless this one is probably worth a note or two.  Mercury turns backward 22 March (5:30 pm PDT) at 17 Aries till the Ides of April (2:30 am PDT) at 5 Aries.  Aries 5-17 is the Gemini-through-Libra portion (“Duads” in astrologuese; a Duad is 2½ Degrees or one twelfth of a Sign) of Aries.

Without noticing, some time around 6 March we started a new Project.  Around 9 March we noticed, got serious about it, and it’s been prominent in our thinking ever since.  During this time we’ve trashed “version 1.0” of our Project (Gemini Duad), started over (Cancer), perfected “version 2.0” (Leo), then torn that apart, trashing our Identity in the process (Virgo).  Now we’ve started over again, this time involving Other People (Libra).  Till today.

For instance, I got the Flu in early March, and little did I realize while I was being Victim to it, that a week in bed did absolute Wonders for the chronic low-back ache and occasional hip pain that has plagued me for years.  I could walk more freely than I have in years.  Then for the last two days I had to do more physical work than I have for a while, reclaiming the back pain.  This morning when I woke up I dosed it with Traumeel (topical Arnica and other herbs) and Focused Attention, and the pain receded almost to nil.

So that’s one of my Projects, restoring some of the Freedom that my Physical Body offered in my youth.  Then of course there’s “clearing and processing these emotions” that the Flu and its Regression brought up.  (As we wrote in the previous post, those are about a lot more than just a Mercury Retrograde.)  So now, as I discovered yesterday and today, we’ve entered a new phase of these Projects, a phase that is likely to be characterized by backtracking.

So the only Progress we can expect in our Project over the next 3½ weeks, is making a Fearless and Searching Inventory of it, what it is we think we’re doing, why we’re doing it, and how we want to go about it.  For the rest of March (Libra and Virgo Duads) we’ll probably wish we hadn’t told Others about it, and wrestle with their misunderstanding of our Intentions (which we barely understand anyway).  This is Aries – it’s Hopeless to try to Explain yourself, because you have no idea what you’re doing.  You’ll just be making up stories to Justify yourself.

In the first week of April we restore enough privacy to get centered and restart forward progress (Leo and Cancer).  Which Progress we won’t actually make, but we’ll have the illusion of it a couple of times.  In the second week of April we take it all apart again (Gemini), till finally in the third week we’re ready to Start Over again, and this time we know what we’re doing (Taurus).  By now we’ve probably figured out that this Project is part of the Graduation from 3D to 5D, and noticed the correlation with the end-of-March Triple Stations of Ixion, Pholus, and Quaoar.

Which brings us to what we really want to write about today.

When the usual Huper Development Progression is interrupted, our Emotional Development in that arena stops.  Let’s say we got sick a lot in the eighth grade, and missed out on many of those horrible teenage disasters that would have taught us some degree of Social Skills.  We can never catch up.  Those parts of our persona are stuck at age 14, perish the thought. 

What if that was when your Programmers and other Abusers came down hard on your Unique Genius?  Then whenever Ixion is Lit Up you’re going to be obsessively reviewing all of the things that permanently stunted your Life at ages 14 and 15, ruing your charismatic peers, craving Understanding from anyone who might figure out what you’re going through (but which you can’t describe because you’re Lost in it), and longing to Act Out what you would otherwise have been Doing and Learning at age 14.  That’s just an example; for most of us our Ixion was Repressed long before we got to 14 years, sometimes before we got to 14 months.

Like these people who are compulsively Freaking Out and insisting on their First-Amendment Right to be an Asshole.  (Actually, it’s the Second-Amendment freaks that are scarier.)  But that’s the core of the dilemma.  Without Practice we’ll never be able to bring our Repressed Skills up to an age-appropriate level.  When you encounter an Asshole on the street or an Antichrist in a white house, you’re unlikely to Poor-Sweetheart them and offer to help them bring their Skills up to their chronological age level.  They’d probably be deeply Offended if you did, unless you were deceptively subtle about it.

So this is exactly what we need – someone to Poor-Sweetheart our Retardation and offer to help Remediate our Childishness.  In Bessel van der Kolk’s book Your Body Keeps the Score, he points out that his PTSD clients have Healed most rapidly when they’ve taken up theater.  Which is exactly how we can resolve the Bringing-Our-Skills-Up-to-Date issue.  We certainly don’t need to join a local theater group and splash our Ego all over town, though if that’s what will Heal us, then that’s what will Heal us.

You can get together with two or three trusted friends and either find Plays with roles that touch your Tender spots, or make one up.  With luck and some internet searching you might even be able to find one Play with roles that fit what each of you needs to Recover.  Something like Waiting for Godot for instance, or In Watermelon Sugar.  By the end of March you might be very glad you did. 

Once you start in earnest to catch up to the Present Moment, you’ll stop Regressing, Notice that you’ve actually Learned a lot since age 14 or whenever, and find your Skills approaching the Current Moment surprisingly quickly.

    Those suddenly Saturnian Arcturians just came down hard on getting our acts together — kinda like “when your Programmers and other Abusers came down hard on your Unique Genius”! I smell a rat! We won’t be fooled again!?? I’ve always thought the ’60s / ’70s were just our dress rehearsal. sheila

    The Arcturians aren’t as sudden as they appear to be, as many of their Channels – there are many folks claiming to Channel the Arcturians – have been mentioning for a while that we’ll soon be having to make a choice between 3D and 5D. It makes more sense to me to focus on our own Personal Progress than worrying about Externalities, as we’re likely to be best prepared for any situation by following that course.
    So I haven’t emphasized the “threats” or “warnings,” as they may be interpreted, and instead focused on the Channels and passages that will help us get Clear and Present.
    On the other hand, the Darkness in 3D does seem to be taking a serious turn for Darker, and the Stellium of Stations at the end of March are (a) all dwarf planetary Heavies, (b) Stationary at the same time, and (c) Stationary in the same place, at the cusp of Capricorn. That was where Pluto Aligned with the Galactic Center at Winter Equinox 2012, the Beginning of the Galactic New Year, New Calendar, and New Age. The chart is heavy but benign.
