Survival or Bust IX Lightening Karma

Here’s a shot of our 25 December 2019 Annular Solar Eclipse, captured in the Wild by Shahrin Ahmad, from Oman…

Yes, good question; is our Karma Getting Lighter, or is it Striking us like a Bolt from the Sky?  Technically, the “e” should clarify that, but as asteroid Karma crosses Chiron, it could be either.  With Chiron though, symbolizing as it does both Despair and Miracle, we have our Trusty Swiss Army Incantation for Bummers.  Say it aloud or silently, but speaking to yourself…

You Poor Sweetheart, you feel like you’ve been
Struck by Lightning, don’t you.
or
You Poor Sweetheart, you feel [whatever doesn’t
Delight you], don’t you.

Two caveats.  First, this isn’t an Exclamation, it’s just a Neutral statement of fact.  And second, do be Mindful to Change the Subject after you say it.  If you keep thinking about the Bummer, you dump yourself right back into the Muck.  You may even need to say, “You Poor Sweetheart, you can’t Change the Subject, can you.” or Tap (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzVd6Ww0as4) on “Even though I can’t seem to Change the Subject, I deeply Love and Accept myself.

The purpose of Tapping is to Align your Thoughts and Feelings with your Energy System, as you Tap on the ends of each Meridian.  Since Bummers are usually Imbalances, fixing your Alignment often mitigates your Discontent.  So Tapping involves “I” statements, and the general “rule” about avoiding Negativity does not apply.  You Recognize the Negativity that you’re already Embracing.

The purpose of Poor-Sweethearting on the other hand, is to Step Out of your Bummer, so you Salute yourself, kindly and gently and without Judgment, from the other side of the Mirror.  It sounds like a grammatical trick, but it’s much more than that.  It actually changes your Perspective, which is necessary because “you can’t solve a Problem using the same thinking that postulated it.”

Poor-Sweethearting is also very different from Denial, because you’re Empathizing with yourself wearing the Bummer.  Before Poor-Sweethearting you were Identified with Bummer, now you’re Identified with Compassion for yourself.  Even if you don’t succeed at Changing the Subject, you’ve Experienced at least a moment of Unconditional Self-Love.

Chironean Miracles are subtle.  When you do succeed at Changing the Subject, you simply aren’t the same “You” that you were when you were wearing the Bummer.  Our Beliefs-of-the-Moment determine how we Interpret the World outside ourself, and in turn whether we Perceive someone to be Smirking about us or Smiling at us.  The World surrounding Compassionate-You contains events and things and Feelings that simply weren’t Possible in the World surrounding Bummer-You.  Those are the Miracles.

You may be too young to remember that old Xerox commercial…

And speaking of Beliefs-of-the-Moment, as we speak asteroid Vesta is very Strong (Stationary), peaking 29 December (2:30 pm PST).  Vesta symbolizes exactly that, our Beliefs-of-the-Moment.  While Multiple Personality Disorder, if they still call it that, is more extreme than most of us Experience, we all have many different Personalities or “Sub-Personalities,” and it’s our Beliefs-of-the-then-Moment that differentiate them.  Many of our Sub-Personalities have never met one another, because they take turns.

But we’re getting ahead of ourself, as we were supposed to be filling out our Interpretation of the Chiron-Karma Initiation chart (the second chart in the previous post) that’s Exact on 1 January 2020 (1pm PST).  The primary difference between Karma’s Aries-Ingress chart (the first chart in the previous post) and Karma’s Initiation-by-Chiron chart, is the addition of a major Challenge (T-Square) to our Vitality (dwarf planet Varuna) that’s about the relationship between our Fate (asteroid Moira) and our Soul (Uranus).

Remember that with Uranus now in Taurus, Soul is Descending into Flesh, and we will be Experiencing Physical Discombobulations while Flesh remodels for its new Tenant.  Soul will be taking the room where Ego used to Sleep.  Ego may throw a hissy-fit, but both Soul and Taurus are pretty Stubborn, so on some level, Ego will have to Compromise.  The close Involvement of Fate (Moira) suggests that Ego may have to Let Go of enough Karma to ease its Resistance.  The symbol for Ego Death (asteroid Nemesis) isn’t directly Involved, so Ego’s usual Resistance may be reduced.

If we look closely though, we see that this Challenge is Self-Resolving (the T-Square forms a Diamond Star with dwarf planets OR10 and Quaoar-Pholus).  So the Body will be getting its own Instructions from its Survival Instincts (Quaoar-Pholus) and its own Memories (OR10), and it will Behoove us to Accept its Ancient Wisdom.  As an alternative to Experiencing Pain and Discomfort as Dis-Ease and “Something’s Wrong,” we might try Reframing it to be a Map of Imbalance that can use our Active, Loving Involvement in Rebalancing.  Tapping can be very useful for that, if you don’t have an Acupuncturist handy.
