Relief from Self-Love Pressure

July 2021 was about one topic – Self-Love, with five planets Emphasized (Stationary) in the 25-29 Degree Zone, starting with asteroid Sappho (Self-Love) Herself. It certainly Worked Over any birth planets we have in that zone, and gave us 24-Caret Opportunities to Let Go of Impediments to our Self-Love around Allowing ourselves to be Reborn into it (dwarf planet Haumea), around Adjusting our Boundaries to Promote it (asteroid Pallas), around Letting Go of Guilt about it (asteroid Nemesis), around What We’ve Been Denying about it (dwarf planet Eris), and around Any Confusion we have with our Fate about it (asteroid Moira).

Well, we’re done with those Dramas. You were likely Confronted with all the ways you don’t Unconditionally Love Yourself, as that’s the quickest and most effective way for the Universe to Teach us. It’s too Easy for us to get sucked into the Negative thoughts that we Embellish our Emotions with, and spend a good part of July mired in Self-Judgment, Self-Doubt, Self-Rejection, and, perish the thought, Self-Hate.

It’s not too late to review your own Experience of July, and after the fact Notice whenever you were diverted from Self-Love, and how the process worked, so you can be more Aware and Revert the curse sooner next time. It’s Never too late to Relive and Modify your Experiences. Linear Time is a Fiction anyway, so you could re-enter those Negative July Experiences as if they were Dreams – which they were – and Redo the Experience, this time Realizing what the whole thing was about and Enjoying the Shift into Self-Appreciation!

Even if you aren’t adept at Time-Travel, you can Root yourself in the Present Moment (Ground yourself, for instance), Remember the Emotions, Return to the Present Moment (a Poor-Sweetheart might help), Congratulate Yourself for Enduring the Experience no matter how it unfolded, Tap It Out if necessary, and make notes about the clues you might Notice a little earlier in the Karmic Trance next time. The sooner we Notice, the Easier it is to Interrupt the Ancient Karmic process and substitute a Different behavior.

Enlisting the Physical is always worthwhile. If you can Recall or otherwise Retrieve the Places in your Body where your Self-Judgments were centered last month, you can Meditate on those Places. Put your Attention into that part of your Body, and Hold it there for as long as you can, Gently and Lovingly bringing your Attention back to that place when your Attention wanders. When you Feel a Shift, that’s Success, you’ve just Thawed a Karmic Fossil. Follow it, find out where it plans to Hide next time. Our Attention is a Scalpel – our Karma can Run from it, but it can’t Hide for long.

August is a lot more diverse, so it should be “Easier” – in the sense that it’s less Intense, though it may require dealing with multiple Portals at once. Everything has it Pros and Cons. We just try to Choose options where the Cons are Amateurs, not Pros. If we have the Internet or a telephone, we don’t need no more Scammers!

The Moon is already Out of Bounds – it went Out at 11:22 am PDT 3 August, and comes back In Bounds at 6:40 am PDT 7 August, spanning 17 Gemini to 4 Leo, and Peaking at 9:47 am PDT 5 August at 25:42 North Declination in 10 Cancer. Moon Out of Bounds makes us more Emotional, but we usually have our Emotionality well Justified, so we often don’t even Recognize it as Emotionality. It’s the Delta Virus making many folks go Tilt this week, except for the folks who’ve lost their Homes to Fire and Flood, who have much else to Fret.

The Moon will be back In Bounds by then, but we’re working up to a 6:50 am PDT 8 August New Moon in 17 Leo. The Midpoints of the Fixed Signs (Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius, Taurus) are nicknamed the “Four Horsepersons of the Apocalypse,” because they’re Potent Locations. The only other Horsedude that’s Lit Up is Uranus (Soul ) at 15 Taurus. The other two are on Sabattical, working on the Fires and Floods.

However, the New Moon itself is Merged with (Conjoins) the asteroid meaning Respect for All Things (Hopi), and it’s Amplified (Out of Bounds). So it’ll be our Judgments that will be Lit Up, so we can Let Them Go, this weekend. Ego-astrologers interpret Uranus as Disruption, because it Disrupts anything that our Uranian Soul regards as Obsolete. Since Uranus Challenges (Squares) the New Moon and Hopi, we can Expect our Judgments to be Challenged, and to Star in our Learning Opportunities for the next several weeks. Traditionally, the New and Full Moons have their primary influence during the two weeks or so following their occurrence.

Other than this, the New Moon chart isn’t too complicated…

The green wedge pointing at the New Moon is informative. It’s called a Finger of the Goddess, and it means Pay Attention here! The base of it connects the symbols for Codependence (dwarf planet Hylonome) and for Abuse and Privilege (dwarf planet Nessus). Codependence and Abuse/Privilege are markers for Inequality. If we Respect Others, and Respect Ourself, as true Equals, there is no Codependence, no Abuse, and no Privilege.

The green lines themselves are called “Quincunxes” because they connect planets that are five (Quin-) Signs (-unx) apart. They mean Curiosity, or Mystery. The indicate that, in this instance, the Relationships between Respect and Codependence/Self-Sovereignty, and between Respect and Abuse/Privilege, are not open to Intellectual Anal-ysis. They must be considered Paradoxes, whose Meanings are only open to Intuitive Approximations.

Asteroid Hopi makes a Waxing Square (three Signs ahead) to Uranus. The Waxing Square is the point where the Energy of the Cycle becomes Mainstream. The Hopi-Uranus Cycle is about Soul-to-Soul Relationships, not just to other people, but to All Conscious Entities. And all Entities are Conscious, since Consciousness is the fundamental building block of the Physical and Energetic Universe.

The current Hopi-Uranus Cycle began in April 2020, in 7 Taurus, which means “The woman of Samaria at the Ancestral Well.” Rudhyar describes who she is, and the herstorical significance of her meeting Jesus there. He says,

The highest meets the lowest when this lowest is free from traditional bonds and open to love. The creative future descends first to that which has become chaos. An old order is never open to a new Revelation until it has accepted disorder in the name of that Power which subsumes all forms of order, i.e. Love.”

“The Lion’s Gate Portal is open, offering access to higher vibrational energies.  As Sirius rises in the night sky, the moon is retreating into darkness.

“The Lion’s Gate energies are said to reach their peak on 8 August – this Sunday – which coincides with the New Moon! What better time to clear out the ‘old’ to make space for the NEW?
