Where Are We, Then?

It’s a good time for an overview of what’s going on…

Most Important, we’re ending one 35-year (or so) Cycle and beginning another.  We use three primary sources to interpret the meaning of a particular Cycle as a whole…

First, we use the natures of the planets involved.  Here we’re referring to the planet that symbolizes The Most Important Thing – our Priorities (Saturn) and the dwarf planet that stands for Transformation and The Primary Background Theme of the Times (Pluto).  Lest we ossify, our Personal and Political Priorities will need to Change when this Zeitgeist Changes.

Those with a significant Investment in the Old Cycle will Propagandize like crazy to try to maintain the fruitfulness of their Investment.  You can see this happening around the Decline of the Patriarchy.  Mainstream Institutions and captive media make it look like the Patriarchy is at its peak.  The next phase of greater Gender Balance may take a step backward for every two forward, but rest assured it’s on track to watch the Patriarchy crumble into the toxic slough of its own Hubris.

Feel free to Allow your own Investment in the Old Cycle to Feed you while it fades, but bear in mind that the Cycle is already Dead, so your profits will slowly Decline.  Your primary Efforts are better spent laying the Groundwork for your Investment in the New Cycle.  It will be a while before you hit paydirt, but you’ll have the advantage of being well prepared when the Market comes looking for you.  In the case of this New Cycle, the Market won’t fully hatch till 2028 (when Saturn reaches its Waxing Square to Pluto), but it will gradually increase till then.

A parallel Shift occurs when a planet Changes Sign.  For someone of my own vintage, the classic example was the Shift from when the Zeitgeist (Pluto) was in the Sign of Nurturance (Cancer), to when it moved into the Sign of Self-Reliance (Leo).  My parents and their peers could not understand how my own cohort could forsake Security (Pluto in Cancer) in order to pursue Self-Expression (Pluto in Leo, especially when Pluto was Out of Bounds, as it was off and on from 1938 till 1953.  The Shit hit the Fan in the 1960s, when many of these people reached maturity just as the New Uranus-Pluto Cycle was Born).

We’ll find similar Gaps between people, projects, and Institutions that are born in different Cycles of Zeitgeist-attuned Priorities (Pluto-Saturn).  How will these Differences Manifest?  We need to look at Differences in the natures of the Expiring and the Emerging Cycles themselves, which we glean from the second and third sources of interpretation…

 The second source of meaning is a Reading for the Degree of the Birth of the New Cycle(Outer planet Conjunctions will typically occur several to many times; their first Conjunction in the Cycle defines the Birth of the New Cycle.)  Like each of the twelve Signs, the 360 Degrees of the Zodiac also each have traditional meanings (commonly read through their Sabian Symbols, which were Channeled in the 1920s).

The Priorities-Zeitgeist (Saturn-Pluto) Cycle that’s Ending began in 1982 as “A person becoming aware of spiritual forces surrounding and assisting them(the Sabian Symbol for the Degree of the first Conjunction of that Cycle, 28 Libra).  I doubt that Dick Clark or his clones will ever characterize the Zeitgeist of the 1980s, 1990s, 2000s, and 2010s as Awareness of Spiritual Forces Surrounding and Assisting us, but in retrospect I certainly regard exactly that as the Most Important Change in my own Life since the 1980s.

It was in the early 1980s that I had an office downtown, and was riding a bus across town on an errand when I sat down next to a young lady and just to make conversation, asked her what she “did.”  She said she was a “Psychic.”  I almost fell off the bus, I was so surprised.  I thought that happened only on television.  I signed up for a Past-Life Reading, and it literally blew my mind, because of the extraordinary Sensations of Limitlessness that I felt during the Reading, and that episode led to meeting my First Spiritual Teacher.

 So, what about the New Cycle?  Its Anthem is “A soldier receiving two medals for bravery in combat(the Sabian Symbol for 23 Capricorn).  Now that is a Change of Zeitgeist.  I don’t think it needs to be about War, as we can be totally Brave in many other ways – standing up to the Bullies, Speaking our Truth, Keeping the Faith, Mediating Hopelessly Polarized Disputes, Praying for Lost Causes, Resisting War, etc.  While the Old Cycle fades from the mainstream, What We’ve Learned From It never goes away.

Over the last 35 years we’ve Learned that we not only don’t have to Do It All Ourself, but also that it’s simply Silly Egotism to think that we Do Any of It Ourself.  We are Transformers.  Our greatest Power lies in Directing the Show, in “PIAVAing” (see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/) the World We Want to Live In, in our Intentions.  The Material World is Created in the Image of someone’s Vision of it, usually the Vision of a lot of someones.  We need to Step Up and Take Command of the Role of the Visioner.  We need to do that for the Planet and All of its Residents.  We can be a Brave Soldier in that Endeavor.

For instance, we can help the Patriarchy Save Face as it Dies Out, so its Ego doesn’t have to Cling so tightly to its Illusion of Power.  We can thank it for holding the place together while we figured out the Next Step.  We can Lovingly and Gently demonstrate Power-With when we see people getting all tied up in Power-Over, to show them that there are other ways.

We can Create our own Institutions rather than beating our heads against the wall trying to take down the Patriarchy’s Institutions.  If we demolish an Institution, it creates a Power Vacuum that someone else can step into, and the Outcome is likely to be Worse.  Better to just Create a New Institution to serve Our Goals, one that will already be up and running, ready to step into, when the Old one faceplants.

Our third source of interpretation for the Old Cycle is its Birth Chart.  On this score the Old Cycle’s 1982 Natality featured two major Changes (Squares).  First, the Movement from Victim of to Mastery over Materiality (Saturn-Pluto Opposing asteroid Karma, and Chiron Squaring dwarf planet Makemake).  I know, this is the exact period of the Decline of the US Middle Class, but not everyone has Learned to Accept the Assistance of the Spiritual Forces Surrounding them.  It’s also a period where more and more people have Realized that Abundance means Having Enough to Share, not Having More than Anyone Else.

The second Movement was from Hope to Trust (asteroid Eurydike Squaring Neptune), as we’ve Learned how to Communicate with the Spiritual Forces Surrounding us and how to Collaborate with them to Manifest What We Want.  The mass market edition of Shakti Gawain’s germinal book Creative Visualization hit the streets in 1982, just as the new Old Cycle began.  For the last third of a Century we’ve been Practicing for Ascending into 5D(Find more about 5D in Michael J. Roads’s books.  Find more detail about the Old Cycle’s Natality at https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2019/11/10/january-2020-ii/.)

 The Birth Chart of the New Cycle teaches us a great deal about preparing for the next 35 years.  The chart of the ZeitgeistPriorities Initiation (Pluto-Saturn) itself gives us the Tools to be Aware of the Change (Saturn-Pluto Conjunct Mercury Out of Bounds), to make it Sustainable (Conjunct dwarf planet Ceres/Sustenance), and to have Confidence in it (Conjunct dwarf planet Chariklo/Confidence).  It also advises us that many Secrets that the Old Order kept Hidden will come forward into the Open (Saturn-Pluto Square dwarf planet Eris/Revelation).  We’re advised to Accept the Consequences of Aligning with Truth, rather than trying to maintain the Status Quo.

This chart also tells us that we want to Trust that New Facts will be Transformative, and Trust our Intuitions that the Future will be no Bigger than our Dreams for it (asteroid Eurydike/Trust T-Square to asteroids Veritas/Truth and Bee-Zed/Transformation Opposite dwarf planets Chaos/Unlimited-Potential and Asbolus/Intuition).  In other words, we need to be Creatively Visualizing a World that is Far Beyond what we would normally Want to Manifest.  Whatever you Want, make your Prayers and other PIAVAs much much Bigger and Better than that!  (For more detail about the New Cycle’s Natality, see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2019/11/17/january-2020-iii/.)

 Astroevents are always embedded in Time, so any astroevent must also be seen through the eyes of What Else Is Going On at the time.  The Beginning of the New Zeitgeist-Priorities Cycle is Blessed with A Lot Going On, and it Goes Deep.  In our view, Saturn represents Ego.  The Mythological Saturn’s mother was Gaia, and his father was Uranus – Saturn was the child of Earth and Sky.  Saturn and his siblings were Titans, and were kept inside the Earth, where they caused Gaia pain.  Gaia asked her children to neuter their father to prevent further pain, and only Her last-born Saturn was willing to do it.

In our view, Uranus represents the Soul.  So the story is about Ego taking Control over the Soul’s Ability to Create.  5D is about Recognizing the Consciousness inherent in Matter, and Manifesting in Cooperation With Gaia/Nature and Uranus/Soul rather than in Defiance Of the Life Force in Nature and the Soul.  Saturn/Ego‘s own son Zeus was the father of the Patriarchy, with its focus on 3D Hierarchy and Power-Over rather than 5D Cyclicity, Equality, Interdependence, and Power-With.

Regular readers know that we consider the Influence of a planet to peak when the planet Stands Still in the Sky, as the outer planets do twice a year (when they turn Retrograde or Direct).  So we consider a planet that’s Standing Still in the Sky to have more Power in the moment than a planet that’s Beginning a New Cycle.  In other words, we regard the entire New Cycle to be Devoted to the Mission of a planet that’s Standing Still at the Initiation of the Cycle.

 Well, at the Beginning of the New Zeitgeist-Priorities Cycle, two planets were Standing Still.  The first was none other than Uranus/Soul, whose Mission at the moment is the Descent of Soul into Matter (Uranus in Taurus/Earth), which we can also invert and read as the Ascent of Ego into Soul, or into 5D.  Astrology doesn’t comment on the Nature of Reality, but only on the Relationship between Huperity and Reality.  So one way to look at the Mission of Uranus in Taurus, is as the Reanimation of Nature and the Earth by Hupers.

We can see the New ZeitgestPriorities Cycle as offering “two awards for Bravery” in the Reanimation of Nature and Gaia.  Of course this is only one Interpretation.  But Matter Follows Energy, and Energy begins with Vision.  So this Interpretation can lead us toward 5D.  Other Interpretations can take their Visioners toward where they wish to go – more Power to them.  We don’t need to Compete with them; we can Co-Exist with them.  We don’t even have to be in the same Realities.  Many Holograms can occupy the same Space, if the concept of Space is even defined in such a picture.

The second planet that’s Standing Still in the Sky is the one that symbolizes Revelation of What’s Been Denied (dwarf planet Eris).  As we said before, this planet Challenges (Squares) the New ZeitgestPriorities Cycle.  But if there’s one Denial that’s leading to the Destruction of Life As We Know It, it’s the Denial of our Awareness of Consciousness in Nature and the Planet, and in Her Myriad of non-Huper Entities.  We can Vision and Create 5D in spite of that Denial, but the more Energy can be dedicated to a Vision of Life Cooperating With Life, the more Suffering can be reduced.

 What else is in the chart of the New ZeitgestPriorities Cycle’s Intimate Companion, the Station/Apex (Standing Still in the Sky) of Uranus/Soul?  This remarkable chart makes a Self-Resolving Challenge Full of Grace (a Diamond Star embedded in a Grand Trine, where a T-Square, Finger of God, and Grand Trine all point to the same planet, making everything work together Effortlessly.  Find the chart, and more details, at https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2019/11/07/january-2020-i/).

Climate Change (the Conjunction of Quaoar/Survival, Pholus/Ability-to-Respond, and Aletheia/Truth-of-the-Heart) is in this chart as one of the Foundations for Self-Resolution (one foot of the Finger of God).  It could be that Climate Change will be the one Energy that finally Unites Huperity in the Awareness that We’re All in This Together.  The other Foundation is Memory (dwarf planet “OR10″/Intrusive Memories) – perhaps one of the Denials to be Revealed will be our Collective Memory of Atlantis.

The chart does Ask two things of us – that we Step Out of Victimhood (asteroid Moira/Fate-and-Choice Opposing Uranus, and asteroid Karma/Karma Conjoining Chiron/Despair-or-Miracles), and that we Stay Curious and Avoid Trying to Figure Out What’s Going On (the many Quincunxes in the chart).  If we covet those Medals, we just need to Bravely keep Speaking our Truth and Embracing the Life Force.  But we may find all this just Happening all on its own, while we just watch.
