Transmuting Fear New Moon

The 15 May New Moon (5am PDT), and therefore the theme of the next several weeks, is all about Reframing Fear into the Power that it really is.  Back in the early days of writing these, I lived in a basement apartment, and often wrote late at night.  As my Consciousness would expand into the darkness beyond the apartment, I’d often encounter Fear that someone was lurking just beyond the curtains, even chills and goosebumps. 

One night, after several episodes of these Fears, I flung the door open – to find a Glorious Full Moon Goddess staring down at me!  The Universe Loves Irony.  The New Moon chart is more organized than it looks…

The first bit of wisdom that it offers is that Lack of Respect for something – anything – is the doorway to Unconscious Fear.  When we’re Conscious of Fear we can Tap it Out, and Theta Clarity between our Intuition and our Negative Expectations. 

When Fear is Unconscious, it runs our Life.  We rationalize it – we “don’t like Such-and-Such because….” so we don’t have to admit to ourself that Such-and-Such, whatever It is, Frightens us, perhaps because we don’t know how to Stay in Control around it.  We’re Uncomfortable around People from Other Cultures because we don’t know how they’ll React to what we say or do.  And in turn, we don’t know how to Respond to their Reactions.

This is Fear.  What if we were Safe enough that we could just be our Natural, Vulnerable, Soul-Directed Self.  Much of what comes up over the next few weeks will be the Ego’s Reaction to the Soul’s New Tendency to say what it will (see previous post).  “Oh my God, what have I said?  And what do They think I said?  How am I going to wriggle out of this?  They might kill me!” 

What if we could just be Present and Neutral, and use the Potential Misunderstanding (or Understanding!) as the Opportunity to Ask Them what they’re Feeling, and actually get to know them better.  I know, They talk too fast, faster than my ears can Listen.  So I’d have to Ask Them to Slow Down, I’d have to Slow Way Down, Ask them to repeat, then mirror back to Them, “Did you mean…?”  What if the Real Objective was to Get to Know Other rather than Show Off the Ego?

The New Moon is Conjunct dwarf planet Sedna (Transforming Fear into Power), and Opposes asteroid Hopi (Respect for All Things).

A friend was recently talking about Synchronicity, pointing out that Jung saw it as Acausal, and saying that he thought “the cause was coming… from some other dimension.”  Certainly a valid Perspective, but what if we could see the Universe with Eyes that don’t hold Cause and Effect to be the Bottom Line?  What if being Acausal meant that It just Is What It Is, without ever being Caused by anything?

What if Synchronicity is the Bottom-Line Operating Principle of the Universe, and Causality is only interjected by our Observing Minds because we don’t know how to think without it?  What if all Lapses of Perfect Synchronicity were just our own Negative Expectations interrupting our Perception of the True Natural process of Miracle?

In Physics 101 they introduce the concept of Flatland – if we lived in two dimensions, we were two-Dimensional ants on a flat surface, and an Entity who lived in three Dimensions came along and put their finger on our plane and moved things around.  We’d see it as Miracle.  What if “things” can Manifest and Demanifest directly, fully formed, without ever being “built” or taken apart?  You’ve had things go Walkabout – how the devil does that happen?

What I’m working towards here is the Opposition between the Sedna New Moon and Hopi.  Opposition, the Second Harmonic, symbolizing the Power of Ritual.  This is how we’re Hypnotized.  The mind is Dualistic; it Expects the Universe to Mirror it.  So we see Opposition as Contradistinction, or Contradiction.  We hold Fear/Sedna in one hand, and Respect for All Things/Hopi in the other, and see if we can Balance them.  Balance is a step up from Contradiction.

But the Sedna New Moon-Hopi Opposition is the Central Axis of a Yin Gate (the two green Xs on either side of the red asterisk, inside the blue box that they define – or three Oppositions one Sign apart), and a Yin Gate Asks us to look beyond Dualism into Paradox.  That Fear and Respect for All Things can co-exist relatively Peacefully – as they do in Real Life as opposed to in the mind – is a Paradox.

We may think that Respect for All Things has to demolish Fear if we are to Change Mother Earth.  But Fear will just crop up again in another Form, especially Unconscious Fear – “I’ll be Bach” as Arnold would say.  What if instead they must “just” be Balanced.  Or that we need to Meditate deeply on how Fear and Respect co-exist.  Or that we need to somehow Open to whole New Relationships between them.

There’s much more here…

  • The Contradistinctions/Paradoxes between Hidden Genius and Unlimited Potential (Ixion and Chaos-Venus-Pallas), the second Opposition
  • The Contradistinctions/Paradoxes between Rebirth and Ego Death (Haumea and Nemesis-Eris), the third Opposition
  • The green X’s themselves (Quincunxes, Curiosity)
  • The T-Square (Challenge to Mastery) to asteroid Veritas from Sedna-New Moon and Hopi
  • The Grand Trine (Dumb-Luck Blessings) between Veritas, Ixion, and Nemesis

But I’m so exhausted I can barely sit up.  I’ll continue tomorrow if I have time.
