Capricorn I

If we hold the March for Our Lives in one hand, and the Antichrist-Bolton-Pompeo crowd in the other, it’s no contest.  The Future wins, no matter how much damage these Three Stodges and their brown-tongued flunkies can inflict upon the Planet in the interim.  While the Zodiac begins with Aries, most of the Ancients began their year by Praying for Return of the Light, which occurs, when our Prayers are Effective, on the Cusp of Capricorn.

Cusps in astrology are tricky.  Essence switches to its Opposite at Sign changes – Unpredictability to Stability to Change, for instance (Aries-Taurus-Gemini…).  And both Element (Earth, Air, Water, Fire) and Quality (Creative, Stabilizing, Mutating) Change in a consistent but illogical way.  In the Roman Empire, for instance, Winter Solstice was celebrated with Saturnalia, when all of the social rules were turned on their heads.  Quite the opposite of the Saturn we know and love – turned on its head again.

So for instance when we move from Sagittarius to Capricorn, which only takes an instant, we move from Actively Letting Go through Spiritual Fire, to Building with Pragmatic Material Creativity.  A Dizzying Change.  If you were designing a sequence of stages, is this a Transition you would include?  The implication of the Capricorn Cusp is that when you run your Calendar forwards, Spiritual Cleansing is a prerequisite for Manifestation.

We turn our Calendars backwards all the time, whenever we Regress, as we’ve been doing a lot lately – that’s why March has been so Difficult, because we’ve lost many of our Adult Skills as we’ve Regressed to earlier ages without Recognizing it and Adapting to it.  When we run the Calendar backward, Building a Practical Material Nest is a prerequisite for Spiritual Cleansing.

Mars made the Quantum Sagittarius-to-Capricorn Leap a few hours after the 17 March New Moon.  Did you notice that you suddenly went from running around with your blowtorch canceling the Unnecessary, to donning your carpenter’s apron and starting to Build a new Reality from Scratch?

In Dorothy Bryant’s incredible Kin-of-Ata depiction of Winter, the Essence of Capricorn is what we usually call “Buddhist Heaven” – in Buddhist Heaven we’re all seated around a table piled high with a sumptuous feast, but our Elbows are locked.  We can’t reach our mouths with our hands.  We could Pig out directly with our snouts, but the more elegant solution is to Feed One Another.

The Exposure of Facebook as just another Ripoff disguised as a Gift to you is a good example of the Capricorn Cusp – now can we Build something useful to the Planet and its inhabitants, instead of just another 0.0001% scam?  Google won’t be far behind, followed by the GOP.  A ton of Energies are on the Cusp from Sagittarius to Capricorn, including…

  • Focus and Concentration (Saturn) Transitioned near the end of 2017
  • Responsibility (Pholus) made the leap on 20 January
  • Survival (Quaoar) jumped over in early December
  • Energy and Action (Mars) took the plunge a week ago
  • Unconscious Beliefs (asteroid Vesta) will do the deed next week
  • Forbidden Genius won’t get there till February 2020, but it’s knocking on the door already
  • Beginnings (Klotho), Self-Confidence (Chariklo), and Shedding Codependence (Hylonome) are already there
  • Ego Death (Nemesis) crossed the Capricorn Cusp in January 2017, and Self-Love (Sappho) crossed this threshold in November 2017

This is a lot of Power Getting Clear and Coming into the Light, and the three Heaviest of the bunch will Stand Still together next week…

  • Forbidden Genius/Ixion on 27 March (2pm PDT) at 28 Sagittarius
  • Responsibility/Pholus on 29 March (9pm PDT) at 2 Capricorn
  • Survival/Quaoar on 1 April (3pm PDT) at 3 Capricorn

In the middle of this giant Shift comes a Full Moon, on 31 March (5:30 am PDT).  It’s at 11 Degrees of Aries-Libra, so it doesn’t make a Big Angle to the Capricorn Cusp, but it makes a T-Square (Challenge to Mastery) to three Energies that are already in Capricorn: Action (Mars), Focus (Saturn), and Letting Go of Codependence (Hylonome).  Moons often Create the Trigger for more Profound Energy Shifts.

Before we look at those charts, let’s look at what’s probably the most consequential of Capricorn Cusp events of recent Herstory – the Harmonic Convergence.  The most common astroevent to flag the Harmonic Convergence is the Initiation of Saturn by Uranus on 12 February 1988 at 30 Sagittarius.  That’s the birth of the first predecessor to this blog. 

Sagittarius 30 means “The Pope blessing the faithful.”  It was fine in 1988 to look to Outside Authority for Guidance, as many Outside Authorities have been-there-done-that and may offer useful suggestions.  But as we get closer to 5D the only valid Authority is your own Soul.  Expansion (Jupiter), Respect for Diversity (asteroid Hopi), and Investigating Self-Sabotaging Patterns (asteroid Karma) have yet to finish crossing Sagittarius, so they can help us Burn Off any remaining Obeisance that we haven’t Banished yet.

Most of our Codependence was Cleansed by Fire during the passage of Self-Confidence (Chariklo) and Codependence itself (Hylonome) through Sagittarius, the former 2011-2015, and the latter 2007-2015.  If you think about the Major Changes you went through during those years, you can probably find clues about any Authorititis you still need to Heal.  As Conservatives Live and Die by Authority, your Conservative friends may never get to Self-Sovereignty, so don’t waste your Energy trying to convert them, until they come to you asking for help.

Saturn-Uranus is a 44-year Cycle, and we’re now at the 252° point, which is the Waning Tridecile.  That’s a little over half a Sign and three years shy of the Waning Square.  At the Waning Square of any Cycle, the Task at Hand is to Let Go any Attachment we have to the Cycle, as we’re about to Descend into the Void around that Energy.  So we only have about three more years to Cleanse our Self-Sovereignty.

At the Waning Tridecile, we’re Called to Let Go of any Material Advantage that we’ve gained during the Cycle, or since 1988.  Given our position in the “Business Cycle” and the other trends afoot, converting our Material Advantage to Physical Possession of Divisible Hard Assets may be a good direction to move towards.  Hard because you don’t want others to be able to easily claim them, and Divisible because at the very least the taxman and the greengrocer will want some of it.  If you aren’t already growing some of your own Food, it’s past time to start.

When the current historically unprecedented and monstrous Debt Bubble pops (2018?  2019?  2020?), it will make the “Great” Depression look like child’s play.  They’ve already renamed the first “Great” Depression so they could apply the name to the second one, since the first one wasn’t nearly so debilitating as the 1930s.  The older one is now the “Long” Depression, 1873-1896.  

Your “Deposits” with financial institutions are legally Loans to them by you.  Just as you can default on your Loans, so can they.  It’s perfectly legal for them to just confiscate what you mistakenly believe is “your” money that you entrusted to their care.  If you’re lucky they may give you worthless stock in exchange, but only if they’re in a generous mood.  More likely, that will go only to the folks with very expensive lawyers.

It’s late in the Cycle to be studying the Harmonic Convergence chart, but may be worthwhile anyway…

We can call that a “Sailboat” Configuration… 

  • The Bow is Truth (asteroid Alethia) – that’s the general Objective of the Cycle.  It’s on the Cusp of Aries, which is about Beginning a New Journey.
  • Self-Sovereignty (the Uranus-Saturn Initiation itself) is the Rudder; we adjust our course by Letting Go of our Codependence.  It’s on the Cusp of Capricorn; folks in the know were moving from Spiritual Cleansing to Material Construction.  This was S&L Failure days.  It helped a lot if you were already in the 1%.
  • Memories (Mnemosyne) form the Keel; we keep the ship upright by Paying Attention to Recognizing and Embracing our Held Emotions.  This is on the Cusp of Pisces – the Essence of this Cycle is Emotional, as we would expect of any Cycle about Letting Go of Codependence.
  • The crow’s nest, which enables our navigation, is a Stellium (group of three or more planets) composed of Letting Go of Codependence (Hylonome), Endings (asteroid Atropos), and Manifestation (Makemake).  Stellia are complex because they take three or more Energies that we’re accustomed to, and combine them into New Energies that we’re unlikely to Recognize.  So Navigation hasn’t been particularly straightforward since 1988. 

We could interpret the Stellium as Enabling our Creativity by Ending our Reliance on External Authority.  That should allow an increasingly Clear view of the Horizon and the Stars – or an increasingly Clear view of the Truth of our own Self-Sovereignty.  On the Cusp of Virgo, there promises to be a good deal of Ego Death.

While it’s nigh time to Let all this Go so we can Descend Cleanly into the Void, knowing where we’ve been and where we’ve been headed may help us understand where we are and where we’re headed next.  The Big Initiations we’ve recently been through, which will tell us where we’re heading, include…

Bear in mind that after an Initiation the Cycle goes Underground, so don’t expect to hear about these New Energies on Weasel News.  But you can Trust that these Energies are building beneath the surface.  It’s too soon to start a new business that serves the World, but it’s not to0 soon to locate co-conspirators to join to plan new endeavors that aid the other Initiates who are ready to move forward ahead of the pack.  You might even catch up to the teenagers.

For instance, what if you were a lawyer, and starting in the 1970s you developed a secondary specialty in sexual harassment cases.  Gloria Allred did that, and even though the big breakthrough around #MeToo didn’t arrive until recently, she kept up a thriving business keeping the matter in the public eye while it continued to be a very Underground issue.  It takes a lot of Self-Sovereignty to follow a thread through the Underground, but it pays off.  The Demand will be there, just not on Weasel News.

    sailing away on the thin ice of a new day is the first of many more insights bound my way, as i meditate upon this chart. i’ll need at least another lifetime for this!

    That chart was not the Harmonic convergence chart of August 17 1987.

  3. astrobuss Says:

    Thanks, herongrace. As I said in the article, I’m using the more astrologically relevant chart for the Saturn-Uranus Conjunction of February 12, 1988.
