Relationships 4

The Getting-Serious-about-Boundaries (asteroid Pallas entering Scorpio) chart features what we call a “Square Fez with Chinstrap” (or Take-Out Container if it’s upside down) because the primary Configuration is shaped like one of those Moroccan felt hats, with red lines (“Squares”) on the sides, plus what looks like it could be a chin-strap…

The two red lines – Challenges – are instructive…

  • The Expansion of our Self-Love (Sun – Juno [Edges of Consciousness] – Sappho [Self-Love] Stellium) is Challenged (Squared) by our New Perspective on Converting Fear and Anger to Power (asteroid Klotho [New Pattern] Conjunct dwarf planet Sedna [Fear and Anger]).  Or vice versa – it works both ways.

The dominant theme this week is Converting Fear and Anger to Power (Sedna Station) until 9am PDT 29 August.  That’s a Biggie, especially since it’s attached to the symbol for New Beginnings (Klotho).  We’ll be talking more about that.  In our neighborhood there’s a push to confront aerial spraying of toxic chemicals – which is both Angering and Scary – and an Effort to gain Power over it.

  • And our Efforts to Respond Constructively to our Survival Instincts (dwarf planets Pholus and Quaoar) are Challenged by our Inertia (asteroid Karma).  Getting Sprayed with Glyphosate certainly Lights Up our Survival Instincts.  Since that’s Assault with a Deadly Weapon, if our state had a “Stand Your Ground” law we could just shoot down the helicopter.  That would actually be our most Logical and Effective Response, given our Evolution.  But it would be Trouble.

So how do we Respond?  As Above So Below.  This is a microcosm of the Scorched-Earth Strategy that the Patriarchy so often uses to slake its Ancient Drive to Eliminate Competition, the Drive that’s putting the finishing touches on Destroying this Planet, for Fun and Profit.

We have a problem – What We Resist, Persists.  Or, as Jewel put it, we should No Longer Lend Our Strength To That Which We Wish to Be Free From.  And Resistance isn’t just Lending our Strength, it’s Giving it Away.  Especially when they just Laugh at our puny Efforts.  If the townsfolk were on our side, we could gather a Posse.  But the townsfolk Believe the Profiteering Propaganda that the Poisons are good for us.

The Challenge comes from our Karma (asteroid Karma).  As Without So Within.  The Outside World Mirrors our Internal Equanimity or Conflict.  Our Karma is the Habits that we’ve accumulated over our many Lifetimes or Identities.  What do we do when we’re Confronted with a Situation that we’ve been Frustrated by so many times before?  Once we Notice that we’re dealing with Deja Vu All Over Again, we have to Realize that we are no longer in the Present Moment, we’re in our Karma.

In our Karma the Bullies are kicking Sand on us.  In the Present Moment we’re Feeling Frustrated and Helpless because we Feel Powerless.  So, how do we Overcome Despair?  We Poor-Sweetheart ourself (Chiron is only 3½ Degrees from asteroid Karma).  “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Angry and Scared, aren’t you.”  Then we Change the Subject, put our Attention Elsewhere.  If we keep our Attention on what Riled us (…Lend our Strength…), we’ll just Wallow in our Anger and Fear.

Which doesn’t mean we can’t Act in the World.  But we’ll be a million times more Effective if we can do so from Neutrality, and we can’t do that while we’re in our Karma.  We need to find Equanimity first.
