Midpoints IV

September 26, 2021

So let’s look at these Challenges to our Self-Sovereignty (T-Squares in the 26 September 2021 Hylonome-Station chart – see previous post). There are two such Challenges (at least in T-Square form)…

The first is a direct Challenge to our Sovereignty, as the Universe Asks us to Face Facts about our Codependence or our over-emphasis on the John Galt section of our Personality, and especially on our Tech-Worship.1

The second is a rather fascinating Challenge to our Growth in Consciousness focused mostly around how Open or Defensive we are. Do we stick with our Traditional Habits for setting our Social Distance, or do we take the risk of Breaking Free from them and try something new?2 Pandemic Pandemonium complicates this picture.

  • 1 Stationary Hylonome T-Squares the Opposition between asteroid Atlantis [Mental Self-Destruction] and the Merger of asteroids Lilith [Self-Sovereignty] and Veritas [Truth of the Mind]. We usually ignore asteroid Lilith, and use the Moon’s Mean Apogee as our marker for Lilith. Both are symbols of Self-Sovereignty or Claiming our Power, or by Reflection Codependence or Giving Away our Power. We use asteroid Lilith here because it Squares our other primary symbol for Sovereignty (Hylonome), and Opposes the symbol for Allowing Technology to Rule, or Emphasis on Mind over Heart (asteroid Atlantis).
  • 2 Asteroid Juno [Growth in Consciousness], acting as an Agent for The Higher-Ups (Conjunct the Great Attractor, a Gravitational Attraction more Powerful than the Galactic Center, that we don’t know much else about), T-Squares the Opposition between dwarf planet Orcus [Pattern-Breaking] and the Merger of asteroids Pallas [Boundaries] and Moira [Fate vs. Consciousness]. While Orcus appears to be a Fierce Defender of our Traditional Limits, he’s often a Paper Tiger, Defending Vows that are so Ancient they turn to Dust when Challenged.

Neither of these Loaded Choices, in the first case Following Trust in Tech into Catastrophe,3 and in the second Risking Obedience to Obsolete Promises,4 are straightforward Logical Choices. They both hide Complex Paradoxes that require us to Exit the Mind and Enter the Gut and the Heart.5

  • 3 Atlantis Opposite Veritas-Lilith.
  • 4 Orcus Opposite Moira-Pallas.
  • Both are Central Axes of Yin Gates, implying Mystery Schools where our Task is to Resist Obvious and/or Logical and/or Traditional and/or Habitual and/or Either/Or and/or Codependent Choices, and Stay Open to New and Deeper Nonlinear Insights that are likely to Appear very Subtle at first, their Impact Deepening as we Live with them. No guarantees, but Rejecting Insights that aren’t Both/And is one way to tentatively approach a Yin Gate.

Midpoints III and Cuspathon IV

September 25, 2021

Busy weekend impending, with heavy week to follow. Let’s start with the Calendar…

  • Till 26 September 2021, 10:03 pm PDT1 (Cuspathon) – Discovering Concepts, Disguised as Beliefs, that aren’t working for us. Hoping your Discredited-too-late Concept isn’t a Vaccine Conspiracy, not wanting to lose a reader. (Mercury Stationary in 26 Libra – sorry, WordPress won’t let me grey out anything tonight)
  • After 26 September, 10:18 pm PDT – Hopefully, Being Conscious about getting sucked into Collective ThoughtsAboutCompellingCollective-Feelings and Avoiding same. When we Wake Up we’ll realize that All Conspiracies are just ThoughtsAboutOurFeelings, which Thoughts can only lead us astray. Differentiating our Feelings from OurThoughts-AboutOurFeelings is probably the Most Important Work any one of us will ever do on this Planet, both for our Personal Future and for the Planet. (Moon Out of Bounds North till 3am PDT 1 October, spanning 25 Gemini to 5 Leo; peaking at 26:07N 29 September 1:27 am PDT, in 10 Cancer)
  • Till 26 September, 11:37 pm PDT (Midpoints2) – Our Self-Sovereignty and Codependence Issues are likely to be Lit Up so we can Clear them. Many of us have never thought to include Conspiracies as part of our Codependence, especially when they’re Disguised by DoubleThink as Sovereignty Issues, but they’re an excellent example of our Choosing not to make decisions that support our own Values. (dwarf planet Hylonome Stationary in 17 Capricorn)
  • Till 27 September, 12:08 pm PDT1 (Cuspathon) – Our Intuition is Lit Up Brightly. (dwarf planet Asbolus Stationary in 28 Gemini)
  • Till 30 September, 5pm PDT (Cuspathon) – We Confront our Unlimited Potential and face all of our “Reasons” why it can’t be so – it’s too Scary for us to Accept. (dwarf planet Chaos Stationary in 30 Gemini – this is the Retrograde Station, so it doesn’t get to Cancer till 20 July 2022)


  • 1 Possibly stretched out till 5pm 30 September by the Chaos Station in the same Degree Zone.
  • 2 Note that the Cusps and Midpoints relate to one another via the Octile series of Angles (1½ or 4½ Signs apart).

Here is the Midpoints chart…

And here is the Cuspathon chart, drawn for 30 September…

I was planning to interpret the Major Challenges (the T-Squares or red triangles), but I got hung up on the Octile Angles, and it seems important, so we’ll continue with them, and work on the Major Challenges tomorrow. Furthur quasi-astrologuese notes on the Octiles…

  • For instance, Jupiter-Damocles makes a Waxing Octile to the Hylonome Station, while Venus-Lachesis makes a Waning Octile to it. The Octile is about Adjustments and Rebalancing. So we’ll be making Adjustments to bring us further into Alignment with the Current Jupiter-Hylonome Cycle [Expanding our Self-Sovereignty] in preparation for this Cycle going Mainstream at the Waxing Jupiter-Hylonome Square (April 2023), Adjustments that might Relieve that Feeling of having a sword suspended over our head. And we’ll be making Adjustments to help us further Let Go of our Investments in the previous Venus-Hylonome and Lachesis-Hylonome Cycles [Aligning our Sovereignty with our Values, and Letting Go of Karma that Inhibits our Self-Sovereignty].
  • And, the Hylonome Station makes a Waning Trioctile to dwarf planet Sedna, while asteroid Hopi makes a Waning Trioctile to the Hylonome Station. The Trioctile is about Making Adjustments to, and Rebalancing, our Compassion. At 225 Degrees, the Waning Trioctile closely follows the Phitile Angle (222½ Degrees). The Phitile is the Climax of a Cycle, so the Waning Trioctile indicates the Timing for a Change in our Approach to what we’re doing. The Major Project of ours that has Dominated this Cycle will no longer be our Top Priority. Our First Priority might now be Making Amends to anyone we’ve Harmed or Ignored while we were Preoccupied with our former Major Project, in order to Restore the Community we’ll Need for Surviving the Void that always occurs between Cycles and for Thriving in the Cycle that will Follow.
  • Let’s take the Hopi-Hylonome Cycle [the Balance between our Respect for All Things and our Self-Sovereignty] as an example. It began in February 2019, so if it’s possible to think back to that Business-as-Usual Era, prior to the onslaught of the Great Careenavirus Disruption, there’s some “Project,” on some level, that we started around then, having something to do with our Sovereignty and our Respect for All Things. It might be easier to think in terms of when the Cycle met its Waxing Square and went Mainstream. Our “Project” was likely to have been mostly Unconscious until then, since Consciousness has room for a relatively small number of Projects.
  • The Waxing Square was in March 2020!
  • Well, what do you know, we seem to be looking into the Balance between Our Self-Sovereignty and Our Respect for All Things as it concerns the Great Careenavirus itself! I didn’t plan this, the astrology led me to it – as it’s often wont to do! This is on some level, what, the Major Issue of our Time? Is this about Me, or is this about Us? Duh! Isn’t this about Me Hoarding As Much As I Can for Myself While I Can Still Hoard? I mean, What Else Is There? Isn’t that how the Earth Game is played in Western Cultures? Where’s Alex Trebek when we really need him? This may explain part of the Vehemence and even Violence in the apparent over-reactions from some of the AntiVaxxers, instead of the simple “No thanks” that seems more appropriate to the situation. You’d think they were being Asked to do something Harmful, like accelerating Global Warming.
  • The current Hopi-Hylonome Cycle began in 13 Capricorn, A Fire Worshipper Meditates on the Ultimate Realities of Existence.” Rudhyar comments (in 1973), “In times when collective, perhaps total, death could be in store for mankind, the process of subjective meditation is fascinating an ever-greater number of people.”
  • Okay, so that Cycle, where Consciously or Unconsciously we’ve all been doing some version of this “Meditation” on the Balance between Our Self-Sovereignty and Our Respect for All Things has recently passed it’s Culmination (its Phitile). I don’t look up the next Cycle because anything we consider about it will be from the Perspective of the current Cycle, and therefore not only irrelevant, but Regressive. We may discover more by looking at the chart of the 10 February 2019 (5:08 pm PST) Initiation of the current Cycle.

Midpoints II and Cuspathon III

September 19, 2021

Actually, I don’t think we got as far as the Midpoint Action in the last post, even though it was named Cuspathon II and Midpoints I.

I’m still working on Antigone but meanwhile, Time marches on, and we need to begin looking at the other Degree Zone that’s about to become popular, namely the Midpoints of the Signs…

Not that we’re done with the Cuspathon – there are several more events coming up on the Cusps. Among other reasons, Cusps are important because of their Obvious correlation with Change. One can easily say that each Sign is a Reaction to the previous Sign…

Aries moves into the Spiritual Perspective to pull our boots out of the Piscean Emotional Swamp. Taurus moves into Seeing is Believing to ground the Arietian Pie in the Sky. Pluripotent Gemini shatters stodgy Taurean Dogmas. Nurturing Cancer Reacts to Gemini’s Airheaded lack of Empathy. Leo says What About Me?! after tiring of Cancer’s Emphasis on Other. Virgo is Compelled to Examine Who Am I anyway? once we Realize how Lonely Leonine Self-Admiration can be. Still Confused by Virgo’s constant Ego Death, Libra Asks Well, who are these Other people then? What do they Know that I don’t? Not getting what we Wanted from Libran Experiences with Other, we’re Inspired to Get to the Bottom of Things in Scorpio.

When we finally pop out of Scorpio’s The Way Out Is Through mantra, we Find that the motto of Sagittarius is The Way Out Is Letting Go. Running out of Arrows and other things to Let Go Of, in Capricorn we Realize that We’d Better Just Pick Up Our Hammer and Fix It. After we’ve Fixed It Our Way and we’re bragging about it in the local Aquarian Tavern , we Discover that other people had very Different ideas about how to Fix It. Eventually, Realizing that we’ll never Agree on how to Fix It, we get Discouraged and seek Solace in our Emotions, only to Realize that the gas stations no longer give away maps to the Piscean Swamp. So we send a drone up into the Arietian Sky to try to map it ourself. Und so weiter.

We don’t mean to insult anybody here, just to suggest that we take a look at how our two closest neighbors might see us.

So here’s who’s Dancing on our Cusps over the next several weeks…

  • We begin to Examine our Unconscious Limitations Fearlessly on 20 September 2021 (asteroid Vesta moves into Scorpio 9:29 am).
  • For several weeks after 20 September, we get to Review our Emotional Baggage, to see what we need not take with us on the next leg of our Journey (Full Moon in 29 Pisces, 4:56 pm PDT).
  • We have the Opportunity to Study how well our Intuition is Working between now and 27 September, especially around Grokking Perspectives Different from our own (dwarf planet Asbolus Stationary 12:08 pm PDT in 28 Gemini).
  • In particular, stretching to September 30, how well is our Intuition Working around our Unlimited Potential and what parts of it we want to PIAVA for our Bucket List (dwarf planet Chaos Stationary 5pm PDT in 30 Gemini).
  • Meanwhile, till 26 September, we Discover places where our Communication Skills with Other People might be Improved (Mercury Stationary 10:03 pm PDT in 26 Libra).
  • We begin to Seriously Question our Biases after October 4 (asteroid Hopi moves into Virgo).
  • Our Compulsions, especially our Compulsions to Resist our Unlimited Potential to Protect our Ego, are intense through 6 October (Pluto Stationary in 25 Capricorn).
  • This Stresses our Self-Confidence till at least 9 October1 (dwarf planet Chariklo Stationary in 30 Capricorn).
  • After 7 October we start Letting Go of Values that we’ve recently Discovered are no longer Who We Really Are (Venus enters Sagittarius).
  • After 9 October1 we begin to notice that Concerns we’ve had about our Relationships have faded, and our Relationships begin to Change Spontaneously (asteroid Atropos moves into Libra and asteroid Lachesis moves into Sagittarius).

1 A lot Changes on 9 October; also see below.

Meanwhile, our first Sign Midpoint event occurs on 21 September (coincidentally, the Cusp of Libra). While the Seasons Change on the Cusps of the Creative Signs (Northern Spring/Southern Fall on the Cusp of Aries, Northern Summer/Southern Winter on the Cusp of Cancer, Southern Spring/Northern Fall on the Cusp of Libra, Southern Summer/ Northern Winter on the Cusp of Capricorn), the Pagan Cross-Quarter Holidays occur at the Midpoints of the Fixed Signs (Imbolc at the Midpoint of Aquarius, Beltane at the Midpoint of Taurus, Lughnasadh at the Midpoint of Leo, Samhain at the Midpoint of Scorpio), which are also referred to as The Four Horsemen of the Apocalype.

  • Until 21 September (3:10 am PDT) our Self-Love is tested again, in a Review of our extensive Work on it in July. When our Self-Love is Lit Up, it’s important to Remember that Self-Doubt is a Paper Tiger that can be Dismissed summarily. Self-Doubt is just Our Thoughts About Our Feelings of Discouragement, and by now we all know that Our Thoughts About Our Feelings can only lead us astray (asteroid Sappho Stationary in 17 Aquarius). What Is It About the Apocalypse that Frightens You? That would be Your Thoughts About Your Feelings, wouldn’t it. How about instead, Where in Your Body Do You Feel Your Fear About the Apocalypse? Can You Be Loving With It There? No? Well, Keep Trying!!
  • We’ll be Busy with our Judgments and our Compulsions the week of 3 October, but till 9 October (there’s that date again), our Understanding of Sustainability will be Shifting (dwarf planet Ceres Stationary in 13 Gemini). It’s always useful to Remember that Sustainability starts with Sustenance, that is, What Can I Do Without? Notice, above1, that our Self-Confidence is also Up for Repairs, while our Karma is Shifting profoundly, both in terms of natural Expiry dates (Atropos) and in terms of what we can Change Consciously (Lachesis).

Oh, did I mention that we’re likely to be Seduced by Our Thoughts About Our Emotions between 10:18 pm PDT 26 September and 2:58 am 1 October (Moon Out of Bounds between 15 Gemini and 5 Leo, peaking at 26:07 North Declination and 10 Cancer at 1:27 am PDT on 29 September), implying that there’s likely to be much Cultural Stress during that week, as this kind of astroevent usually leads to being Seduced by our Collective Thoughts About Our Collective Emotions. COVID perhaps? Economic Survival? Government Shutdowns? Hurrycanes? Apocalyptic Horrors we haven’t even contemplated? (That would likely involve Pholus, which was lit up last week.)

Cuspathon II and Midpoints I

September 18, 2021

Well, hopefully that’ll take care of the brunt of our Survival Anxiety for another six months.1 We can thank Larry and Ida and Nicolas and Dixie and Caldor and Covid for their shares of the Climate Change Drama in the US, but you probably had your own Local version anyway. Ida was particularly tricky, spitefully drowning folks from New Orleans to New York and in the Between. For many people, the Challenge was all too familiar.2

1 Till Pholus [Taking Full Responsibility ] and Quaoar [Survival Instincts] go Stationary again, which occurs every six months. This time it was Quaoar first at 9:18 am PDT 16 September 2021 in 4 Capricorn [ Just Fix It, Will ya! ], followed by Pholus at 4:58 am PDT 17 September in 3 Capricorn, both turning Direct. The chart we’ve drawn up for them is for their Midpoint (symbolized by the tetherball pole) in longitude and time in 4 Capricorn at 7:08 pm PDT September 16.

2 The main structure of the chart is the two starkly perpendicular “Golden Rectangles” (blue rectangles in the chart) [Natural Grace and Harmony]. The chart is remarkably symmetrical. With a Golden Rectangle in a busy chart we always look for a Yin Gate (a Golden Rectangle with additional planets at the Midpoints of the short sides) [ A Mystery School ], but here both Rectangles had an extra planet on only one end [Open Portals], Squaring (short red line) [Challenging] each other.

The many other red lines [Tensions] are all in Grand Crosses (4 planets more or less evenly spaced around the Zodiac, making a square red box with an X or + across the middle), which while potentially Difficult, they’re in Balance, and as such more easily managed than Incomplete red structures like a Naked Square (unattached short red line) or a T-Square (Opposition with third planet at one of the Midpoints, or a red “right” triangle) [Becoming Adept through a Lifetime of Repeated Similar and Challenging Experiences].

The extra planet at one end only of a Golden Rectangle “Rules” or “Sets the Stage” for the Open Portal Structure. They’re basically the Light at the End of the Tunnel, the Coordinators for the Natural Grace and Harmony in the Golden Rectangle, or the Watchers on the Threshold. A Watcher on the Threshold Protects the Ego from the Disruptive Intrusion of Enlightenment.

There are two Open Portals, one in Earth and Water Signs (Pisces, Taurus, Virgo, Scorpio) that signify Magnetic or Feminine Power (PIAVA), and the other in Air and Fire Signs (Aquarius, Gemini, Leo, Sagittarius) that invite Dynamic or Masculine Power (Plan-Execute-Evaluate). Emotion (Water Signs) takes second fiddle to Sensation (Earth) in the Magnetic Open Portal, and Spirit (Fire Signs) yields Priority to Mentality (Air), because Earth and Air contain Grand Trines (Dumb-Luck Grace), making Becoming More Conscious about the Physical Universe a More Grace-Full Path for us through these Portals.

The Watcher at the Threshold of the Dynamic Open Portal is Global Warming and its Products such as Fires, Floods, Mass Extinction, perhaps including us, the Careenavirus, our Survival Fears and Resistance to Adapting to the Changes (none other than Pholus and Quaoar themselves). The Watcher at the Threshold of the Dynamic Open Portal is Magnetic (Earth Sign Capricorn, Just Fix It! ), signifying Integration, the Sacred Marriage of the Inner Male and Female, and Our Inner Male’s Willingness to be Guided by Our Inner Female.

The Side Doors in the Dynamic Tunnel (the corners of the Golden Rectangle) – where we may be able to collect “passwords” (Insights or Experiences or Personal Transformations) that allow us to pass by this Watcher – are Our Instincts (the Moon), Our Held or Buried Emotions (the South Node), Our Self-Sovereignty (the North Node and Lilith), and the Death of Our Attachments (dwarf planets Cyrallus and Varuna). We might say that the overriding theme is How the Hell Am I Supposed to Protect a Family and Community when Everything Is Falling Apart and Everyone Is Going Extinct?!?!?

The Watcher at the Threshold of the Magnetic Open Portal is Our Self-Sabotaging Habits or Our Frustration with Our Karma (Mars and asteroid Karma). The Watcher at the Threshold of the Magnetic Open Portal is Dynamic (Air Sign Virgo, Ego Death) – Manifesting What We Don’t Know How to Manifest, or, again, Integration. The Side Doors include Our Intrusive Memories (dwarf planet Gonggong), the Birth of our Enlightened Self (dwarf planet Zhulong and asteroid Klotho), Trust that we can Manage Seemingly Impossible Situations (asteroid Eurydike and dwarf planet Thereus), and Our Ego’s Hidden Death Wish (asteroids Aletheia and Antigone). An overarching summary of the Magnetic Tunnel might be the Realization that Everything Is Grist for the Mill, or If It Doesn’t Make You Stronger It Will Kill You (and that’s Okay!).

Our Chief Asteroid Officer yesterday inquired about asteroid Antigone, and Lo, she pops up, Merged with The Truth of Our Heart (Conjunct asteroid Aletheia), in the Exaggeration of Global Warming (Pholus-Quaoar Stations) chart. The one dominant theme that I’ve noticed so far with Antigone is that Folks around her seem to Get Dead a lot. It will be worthwhile to look at Antigone’s Discovery chart next.

Hereabouts, without getting Anal-ytical with MyThoughtsAboutMyFeelings, I’m hoping that the Spontaneous bouts of Excitement that I keep Feeling are related to having made Ego-Death-Rebirth Breakthroughs during Pholus-Quaoar-Moon-Out-of-Bounds Week, that will facilitate my Becoming Adept at the Changes I’ve been working on this summer, rather than “just another” Manic phase.

The Cuspathon Continues

September 12, 2021

Of course all Sign Changes are Cuspal events as well. This month already, Our Relationship Karma was Triggered on 1 September 2021, we Started Second-Guessing our Confidence again on 6 September, and we Began Deepening our Relationships on 10 September. Later this month, we Act to Set Better Relationship Boundaries after 15 September, and Get a Lot More Curious about what Makes our Unconscious Limitations Tick after 20 September.1

Our next Big astroevent occurs 12 September in the last Degree of Sagittarius – I know we’ve all been Feeling it for several days already – as our usually Hidden and often Forbidden Genius, the one who needs to Break all the Rules to Be Themself, gets harder and harder to Repress. It’s not “the Devil” that makes us do it this time, it’s Orders from Galactic Headquarters.2

It’s about the part of ourself that was Shamed or Punished into hiding when we weren’t old enough to be able to Claim Our Own Power. As Powerful as this Energy is for us, it’s almost certainly also Karmic. We spent many Lifetimes developing this Skillset, partly because we knew we – and the Planet – would need it in the End of Days.3 As a Soul we knew that the most Powerful way to bring it into Consciousness would be to expose it to Resistance and Repression.4

Don’t be misled by the 2D version of this Skillset that the Intellect has access to. If we think we Understand it, we’re probably wrong. On the trivial Dualistic level, which is the Skill we need – What Is Repressed? Or The Skill at Repressing It? What we and the Planet Need is probably some Multidimensional but Unitary combination of these two and many more Energies5 that are accessible only to the Intuition.

All next week, through 17 September, “Global Warming” Heats Up. Global Warming is an innocuous-sounding Metaphor for the fact that our Obsessive Left-Brain Laser Focus on ripping the asphalt shingles off of the roof of our House and tossing them into the Fire leaves us Wondering why we’re getting Wet and having trouble Breathing the Toxic Smoke, while Indulging our Victimhood about our Misfortunes.6

1 Asteroid Karma moved into Libra 1 September, dwarf planet Chariklo backed into Capricorn and asteroid Eurydike moved into Virgo 6 September (9:30 am and 12:15 pm PDT respectively), Venus moved into Scorpio 10 September (1:30 pm PDT). Mars moves into Libra 15 September (4:51 pm PDT) and asteroid Vesta enters Scorpio 20 September (9:29 am PDT).

2 Dwarf planet Ixion is Out of Bounds (Exaggerated impact), and Stationary (Strong) 12 September (5:07 am PDT), Merged with the Galactic Center, which is three Degrees shy of the Capricorn Cusp.

3 Think about your T-Squares, especially your most Difficult T-Square – they define your Lifetime Curriculum, and your Frustrations from them are your greatest Teachers.

4 We know it the End of Days (as we know them, of course) because the Plant Sources of both Chocolate and Coffee are threatened with Commercial Extinction.

5 For starters, what about the planets in the Base of your T-Squares? And what other Angles and Configurations do they participate in? What other Angles and Configurations do the Foci of your T-Squares make? Especially the “Hidden” Angles and Configurations – the 5th (360/5=72 Degrees), 7th (360/7 etc.), 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, 13th, and numerically higher Harmonics, the Angles that don’t join the same Degrees in different Signs. Find the meanings of the higher Harmonics in Angeles Arrien’s Tarot Handbook, correlating each Harmonic with the corresponding card in the Major Arcana. We don’t have to be Encyclopedic about it, we can just follow our Curiosity. Pay particular Attention to the 18th Harmonic, symbolizing Authenticity, as this Path also leads to your Wholeness.

The 18th Harmonic comprises 20 Degrees, 40, 80, 100, etc., omitting the Angles that can be divided by 30. Looking up these Angles isn’t as hard as one would imagine. For instance, in the chart of the 29:21 Sagittarius Ixion Station, the 18th Harmonic connects Ixion to 9:21 of the Dynamic (Air and Fire) Signs (Aquarius, Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius), and 19:21 of the Magnetic (Earth and Water) Signs (Capricorn, Pisces, Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio).

We would use no more than one Degree of Sensitivity or Orb, ie, 8:21 to 10:21 and 18:21 to 20:21). Other astrologers would use 24 Arcminutes (0:24) as the Sensitivity, but other astrologers consider these “minor” Angles, which they are as far as the Ego Personality is concerned. Our aim though is to fathom the Relationship between the Ego and the Unconscious, and in this realm the “minor” Angles are where some of our deepest and potentially Most Essential Secrets are kept.

The 18th Harmonic is related to the 9th Harmonic, The Hermit, or the Novile Angle series, symbolizing Introversion and Meditation. For convenience, let’s name the 20-Degree Angle the Unoctile (Un as in “one,” rather than “not”). It’s also known as a Seminovile, but I prefer to use a name for the actual fraction, rather than dividing a larger Angle. We Recognize that Introversion and Meditation are a primary Path to finding the Essential Authentic Self, as Stephen and Ondrea Levine describe in Who Dies?.

If we use Serrenu ( for 12:07 UT 12 September 2021, we find…

(a) Distant minor planet Arrokoth [Close Examination] and centaur Orius [Pirate] at the Waxing Unoctile [Authentic, Integrated]. We might Ask ourself, If we were a Pirate, how on Close Examination would we Feel about that? Would we Empathize with our Victims, Gloat over our Genius, or …? If we were around in 2014, we might remember Arrokoth as Ultima Thule, the target for the leftover fuel in NASA’s flyby of Pluto [Unconscious Compulsions], since renamed Arrokoth.

(b) Plutino Lempo [Love Daemon] at the Waxing Septunoctile (7/18th of 360 or 140 Degrees ahead of Ixion) [Timeliness or Safety of Being Authentic]. We might Ask ourself, In this Moment, do we Feel that Love is Dangerous, or Predatory, or Deceptive, or…?

(c) Dwarf planet Ceres [Sustainability] at the Waxing Quadranovile (160 Degrees) [Adeptness with Authenticity]. We might Ask ourself, Is our Intuition about When to Be Authentic, and When it’s not Appropriate or Safe, Sustainable, or do we Frequently Misjudge How Authentic to Be in a Situation or Relationship?

(d) Asteroid Requiem [Respect for Death], whom we’ve met, at the Waning Septunoctile [The Peter Principle (approaching the Phitile)]. We might Ask ourself, Do we Know When to Call It Quits or to “Get Out at the Top”?

(e) Sun and asteroid Hygeia [Clean] at the Waning Quintunoctile [Learning to Let Go]. We might Ask ourself, Is it Time to “Come Clean” about our Lack of Authenticity in a Relationship? How would we Go About that?

(f) Asteroid Atlantis [Technohubris and Greed] at the Waning Binovile (80 Degrees behind Ixion) [Knowing When to “Fold”]. We might Ask ourself, If I didn’t have to Pay the Consequences, Where would I throw my Sabots to Use My Unique Skillset to Create the Maximum Impact to Stop Hupers from Destroying the Earth‘s Ecosystem? Are we Close Enough to the End that it’s Time to Damn the Consequences rather than Continue to Endure the Status Quo? Is that My Addiction to Comfort Speaking, or My Honest Intuition about the State of the Planet?

6 Dwarf planets Quaoar and Pholus are Stationary on 16 (9:18 am PDT) and 17 September (4:58 am PDT) respectively, near the same Capricorn Cusp (in 4 and 3 Degrees Capricorn respectively. Quaoar is about our Survival Instincts, and Pholus is about What We Haven’t Realized Is Dooming Us. We’ll have No Trouble staying in our Pholian Denial, because we’ll be Covering the Intuitive Warnings that our Emotions are Giving Us, by keeping all of our Mental Attention on our Self-Pity over how the Plagues, Floods, Fires, and other Apocalyptic Events are Victimizing us – if we have any Spare Attention left over from Whining about what a Sacrilege it is to have to keep our Piehole covered, as if that’s any different from keeping our Peehole covered. We should stage a counterprotest about how Unconstitutional it is to have to wear pants. All God’s Chillens gots to have their Freedom…Freedom…Freedom.

We don’t Notice and Acknowledge the Emotional Intuition because we Respond to the Moon being Out of Bounds by making a Big Deal over our Thoughts about our Emotions, especially our Collective Thoughts about our Collective Emotions. The Moon goes out of Bounds at 2:31 am PDT 13 September in 15 Sagittarius. On its way South it crosses Ixion at 3:28 am PDT 14 September, Pholus at 9:16 am, and Quaoar at 11:24 am. It reaches Peak Southness at 25:59 S Declination in 10 Capricorn at 8:45 pm 14 September. While still Out of Bounds it Unxes Ixion on 16 September at 12:22 am PDT, Pholus at 1:10 pm, and Quaoar at 3:21 pm. It returns In-Bounds in 5 Aquarius on 16 September at 3:43 pm.

The Recognition that the Apocalyptovirus is a Natural Child of the “Global Warming” Created by Huper Technohubris and Greed is there, but scarce. Even the Acknowledgment of Huper Technohubris and Greed is rare. Mostly it’s about Beating it’s Chest. After nine years of Flirtation (within 3 Degrees of Sensitivity) and five years of foreplay (1 Degree of Sensitivity), Pholus (Taking Full Responsibility For) will finally Consummate it’s Meeting with Quaoar (Our Survival Instincts) on 8 February 2023 (7:52 am PST) in 9 Capricorn (“An Angel carrying a harp: The revelation of the Spiritual meaning and purpose at the Core of any Life situation” ), beginning a new approximately 120-year Cycle in how Seriously we Consider our Survival. That’s 17 months from now.7

7 Pholus has an elliptical Orbit of almost 92 years, ranging from Saturn to beyond Pluto. Quaoar’s Orbit, at almost 289 years, is a little longer than Pluto’s. Quaoar’s almost-round Orbit is closer to the Sun than Pluto when the latter is furthest from the Sun in its elliptical Orbit, though at the moment Pluto is nine Earth-Sun distances closer to us than Quaoar. Quaoar will be closer than Pluto starting in 2053, at the Midpoint of Aquarius. If Quaoar then replaces Pluto as the arbiter of the Zeitgeist, Survival will become The Most Important Thing, even more than it appears to be today. It was last inside Pluto’s Orbit from 1803, 15 years after the French Revolution, until 1908.

The Cycle that we’re concluding now began in mid-October 1901, at 11 Leo (“Children play on a swing hanging from the branches of a huge oak tree: The power of Tradition as it shelters the beginning of individual self-expression” ). Well, we’re certainly seeing the Death Throes of “individual self-expression,” as the covidiots wave their “Give me Liberty (from Masks and Vaccines) or Give me Death (from COVID)!” flags with Revolutionary fervor. Here’s one result…

And another…

“Death Panels” are actually nothing more than Triage, which has been around forever in situations where Injury and Disease has exceeded a Community’s Healing capacities, and where “the Rich will Live, and the Poor will die.” It’s just not something we’re used to in the “Developed” World and the 21st Century. Is it an aberration, or the start of a trend?

Another Cusp Event

September 10, 2021

The “Square,”1 which is astrologuese for Hassle or Challenge, gives us headaches because it attempts to join two parts of ourself that are in Fierce Competition – our Physicality v. our Spirituality v. our Emotionality v. our Mentality2 – which aren’t likely to want to Compromise. It’s like the Heart and the Brain arguing over who’s More Important, when in walks the Anus.

On the other hand, the “Trine,”3 astrojargon for Sympathy and Understanding, Harmony and Trust Abounding, contributes to our Joy and Ease and Confidence because it links different parts of ourself that Love to Rock Out Together when they Team Up – like our Creativity, our Certainty, and our Evolution.4 Imagine our Dancer joining our Musician, our Writer collaborating with our Illustrator, our Artist enjoying Critical Acclaim and Financial Success.

When planets linger on Cusps, these traditional Relationships get crossed up. For instance, instead of our Creative Spirituality happily Dancing with our Evolutionary Spirituality, we might have our Creative Spirituality Dancing clumsily with our Emotional Certainty, where we might find (and Examine or Deny) our Bigotry.5 Or the Confusion of our Emotional Certainty encountering our Physical Evolution (Remember in our youth when we didn’t want anything to do with the Opposite Gender, till Puberty kicked in?) instead of the routine Challenges of the little Demons and Angels on our shoulders juggling our Emotional Certainty with our Spiritual Certainty.6

1 Shown in our charts by a short red line between planets three Signs apart.

2 Respectively, Earth, Fire, Water, Air Signs [Matter, Spirit, Emotion, Thought] – eg Leo 🥊 Scorpio 🥊 Aquarius 🥊 Taurus, or Capricorn 🥊 Aries 🥊 Cancer 🥊 Libra, or Virgo 🥊 Sagittarius 🥊 Pisces 🥊 Gemini.

3 Shown as long blue lines between planets four Signs apart.

4 Respectively, Cardinal, Fixed, and Mutable Signs [Creative, Stable, Changing] – eg. Aries ❤️ Leo ❤️ Sagittarius, Taurus ❤️ Virgo ❤️ Capricorn, Gemini ❤️ Libra ❤️ Aquarius, Cancer ❤️ Scorpio ❤️ Pisces.

5 Instead of early Aries to early Sagittarius, early Aries Trine to late Scorpio.

6 Late Scorpio Square to early Virgo, instead of late Scorpio to late Leo.

In addition, Cusps are by their nature times of Change, so in addition to the potential Confusion created by these crossovers, we don’t have our History or Herstory to fall back on.

For instance, in the 30 August 2021 Converting Fear to Power chart, Fear Challenges and/or is Challenged by both Trust and Domination. The Trust Challenge is a “Traditional” Challenge – the Material Certainty of Fear (we can Feel it in our Physical Bodies) versus the Spiritual Certainty of Trust. It’s about finding a Balance between Fear and Trust that works to keep us out of Fight/Flight/Freeze and allows us to Differentiate “Real” from Karmic Threats and Act Effectively in Response to each, parrying the Real and Becoming Conscious of the Karmic. But the Challenge of Domination is different. It’s about Physical Stability versus Physical Evolution – it’s about Fear of Change. Do we know what makes the Karmic Real? Do we know what can make the Real Karmic? 7

That’s not all. The Merging of Trust and Domination is also Cuspal. The Trust issue is about Self-Trust. We’d been working since early June on Trusting that our Ego can Handle the Changes, as part of Healing our Unconditional Self-Love. We were in the final stages of that process when Fear Tested us. The Domination issue is about Change. Change in our Willingness to be Dominated or Abused, and Change in our use of Domination (Abuse) in our approach to Getting Our Needs Met. We just started that three-year project, so we’re in the early stages of Discovering the Unknown Unknowns that we need to work on.8

7 In the Sedna [Fear to Power] Station chart, Sedna at the end of Taurus [Fixed Earth] is Squared by both asteroid Eurydike [Trust] at the end of Leo [Fixed Fire] and dwarf planet Thereus [Domination] in early Virgo [Mutable Earth].

8 Eurydike in Leo [Self-Trust] since early June, through 6 September 2021. Thereus in Virgo from early August 2021 through September 2024.

So if we maxed our Benefit from this Challenge (one of many) in the 30 August Fear-Power Curriculum, we were perhaps Discovering where Domination – Bullying or Codependence – fit into our Multidimensional and Unitary Karmic jigsaw puzzle. Are we Creating new Karma or Deepening old Karma through Repetition of Unconscious (or Semi-Conscious and Uncorrected) Domination or Codependence Patterns, and does that Frighten us, or maybe should it Frighten us? Are we Trusting too much that the Victims of our Domination Patterns aren’t hiding Conscious or Unconscious Resentment? Might our Codependence partners Resent our depending on them for Psychological or other “Services” that we should be handling ourself?

What’s the nature of our Karmic Contracts with these “Partners”? As the Planet Descends further into Disorder on way too many fronts all at once, how will this impact our Relationships with and within the Communities we’ll Need for Survival?9

9 A new five-year Eurydike-Thereus [Trust-Equality, Power Dynamics] Cycle begins on 21 September 2021 (7:12 am PDT), in 5 Virgo, “A person becoming aware of Nature Spirits and normally unseen Spiritual Agencies.” These people (the Nature Spirits and Spiritual Agencies) are Distressed that Hupers are not doing their essential part in Reanimating the Planet (ie, working with the Nature Spirits rather than ignoring them).

I just finished Thomas Mayer’s recently-translated book Answering the Call of the Elementals: Practices for Connecting with Nature Spirits, and I highly recommend it. I’ve been working and studying for many years to recover the Connection I had with them in my youth, before my father shamed it into Hiding, and the practices in Mayer’s book are the most Practical and Powerful that I’ve found. There’s also a promising 18 September online workshop sponsored by the Fairy and Human Relations Congress; see

From here I’d like, if I find the time, to examine the Transcuspal Relationship between the dwarf planets that symbolize Unconstrained Freedom (Ixion in the last Degree of Sagittarius) and Taking Full Responsibility for our Survival (Pholus and Quaoar in early Capricorn). The influence of Unconstrained Freedom is Exaggerated (Stationary) until 12 September, and of Taking Full Responsibility for our Survival until 17 September 2021.

7 September Feminine Power Webinar

September 6, 2021

Either these folks have good astrologers, or they’re in tune with the Universe. In this case it’s probably the latter, because while the Global Need for Feminine Power is Overwhelming and Intuitively Obvious, the current-moment Emphasis, at least according to the astrofilter we use here,1 is astrologically very obtuse.2

I’m not personally familiar with Dr. Claire Zammit’s work, but she comes highly recommended, and TOMORROW, 7 September 2021 at 5:30 pm PDT, she is presenting a free 75-minute webinar called Unlock Your Feminine Power: Make the Single Most Powerful Shift Conscious Women Can Make to Get Unstuck & Leap Forward into Their Destiny. Find more information and register at The announcement says that if you register you’ll get a link to a recording of the webinar in case you can’t make the appointed time. You can also download her webinar Guidebook at

I wouldn’t hesitate to register if you’re Male in any sense of the word (there are many these days). From the Planet’s perspective, Males actually Need to get in touch with their Feminine Power more than Women do. I don’t know how Open Dr. Zammit would be to this idea though, so please keep a low profile. You’d be there to Learn, not to Compete or Argue or Expound.

1 We focus primarily on the usually-week-long Exaggeration of the impact of the planets when they Stand Still in the Sky, when they’re said to be Stationary, or having a Station. To catch the planet actually doing this, you need to take a snapshot at the same time every night, to cancel out the rotation of the Earth. As we all take our laps around the Sun, the Faster among the planets constantly pass the Slower, and when they do, one appears from the other to Stand Still for a moment. The Slower have the more Powerful Impact upon us, as we have less Experience with them.

2 As we said in the previous post, at least through 12 September “we have a Challenge between a double symbol of Rebirth and a double symbol of Death. This is not a Duel, but a more nuanced Conflict with many combatants and collaborators and involved spectators who have Skin in the Game. Our Self-Confidence is deeply Involved, as is The Integration of Feminine Power into our Life.” The Feminine Power part derives from the engagement of “Two Fixed Stars, Al Rescha [Bringing two disparate Concept Sets together to Create Deeper Understanding] and Mirach [Harmony, Receptivity, Intuition, Magnetism, Collaboration].”

Aha, I haven’t mapped out the Ixion Station chart yet, but now that I look I see that Venus will be joining the Cuspal Dance, along with Cupido, Aphrodite, Eurydike, Kassandra, and Mars. Kassandra’s Presence is particularly interesting, as she was cursed to be Psychic but constantly Ignored, because of failing to be sufficiently Codependent to a Male God, namely refusing the sexual advances of Apollo. Remember though that Greek Tragedy is misunderstood to be Fatalistic, without any Exits. But Awareness can “Cure” Fate because we gain Choice, and Empathy Heals the Unhealable, so Consciousness and Poor-Sweethearts can go a long way.

Ego Edges

September 6, 2021

We’re still trying to satisfy two Goals with one Blog – describing what’s going on on the Planet while gradually teaching astrology, since anything you Learn about astrology will greatly deepen your Experience of Life on Earth and your Adeptness with it. In this post, read through it first while Suspending Disbelief and ignoring the footnotes. Then go back and reread the whole post, exploring the footnotes as you go. Even if you have no interest in Learning anything about astrology, there is much to gain by simply skimming the footnotes to see if anything catches your eye. Skimming may not get us a PhD, but when we’ve skimmed the same or similar material many times, a lot more has sunk in than we Realize.


One of the greatest Toxins that we Encounter is Certainty. My training as a Psychic was rudimentary. I had fabulous Teachers, I just didn’t pursue it very far because there were too many other Threads going on at the time, but one of the first things I learned was that an easy way to access our Intuition is to Ask ourself, What If I Did Know?

It’s a great technique, and it almost always serves us, but without additional Discernment Skills, it serves our Heart’s Truth, not necessarily the Etheric Truth, and not necessarily Someone Else’s Heart’s Truth. Our Heart’s Truth is a Reliable Guide for Avoiding Self-Sabotage, but it doesn’t Clear our Limitations. Of course, for most everyone reading this, your Heart’s Truth will include a Life Mission of Clearing your Limitations, but that can’t help but compete with other, more trivial matters, such as Survival, or Getting Bald and High…

We’ve just been through a couple of weeks of Fear and Anger,1 and we’re already diving into another week that isn’t per se about Fear and Anger, but is by its nature heavily encumbered with Fear and Anger.2 We’ll talk more about this Forbidden Genius of ours soon, but I want to introduce Them through a prominent (though subtle) feature of the 22 August Full Moon…3

1 The 30 August 2021 Station of Sedna [Converting Fear to Power] in 30 Taurus, stretched out by the 30 August-3 September Out-of-Bounds Moon [Excess Emotionality Covered by Deep and Wide Culturally-Supported Justification, AKA Focusing on our Thoughts about our Emotions rather than on how and where we Feel the Emotions in our Body]. Can we tell the Difference between our Emotions and our Thoughts about them?

Our Thoughts about our Emotions are Mental Gibberish serving only to prop up our Old Ego, Prevent Rebirth, and Maintain our Karmic Limitations. Emotion Itself on the other hand, is the Portal to our Sacred Intuition, to our Future, and potentially to our Liberation from Karmic Limitation (if we have the Fortitude to tackle our Thoughts about the Emotions that We’d Rather Die Than Feel ).

If we can Learn this Discernment1a in this Lifetime, it will be the Pinnacle of Cosmic Success that will Change our Karma forever. Our fellow Gronabixoleans won’t recognize us when we return to our Home Galaxy. Discerning our Emotions (Pisces) from our Thoughts about them (Aquarius) is the Central Lesson of the Pisces-Aquarius Cusp, and if we don’t Learn it here we could be Stuck in Piscean Victimhood for possibly another 25 thousand years, till the next Progressed Pisces-Aquarius Cusp rolls around. Won’t that be Fun. Thank the Goddess that Linear Time is an Illusion.

1a We also have to Learn that Emotions aren’t Ours or Theirs, any more than the Weather is. Emotions are Independent Energies that Visit us, and can Attach to our Egos like Leeches and Suck Away our Life Force. But they also Serve us as a Portal to our Sacred Intuition. We Feel and Dismiss them in a flash, till we get Stuck on Our Thoughts about Them. If we make Decisions based on our Thoughts about Them, we Create sticky new Karma that can follow us around the Multiverse like a hungry Coyote, just Out of Sight. But we know they’re There, don’t we.

2 The 12 September (5:07 am PDT) Station of Ixion [Our Forbidden Genius] in 30 Sagittarius, the same Degree (in different Signs) as the Sedna Station and the Full Moon. When planets are in the same or nearby Degrees, the Interactions between their Domains of Impact are much more Intense. The Full Moon, the Sedna Station, and the Ixion Station span three weeks, but the Unconscious doesn’t Live in Linear Time. There in the Universe beyond the Bounds of our Ego (which Universe, if you haven’t noticed, is usually very much Larger than we are), everything is Simultaneous. Natives of North America (nee Turtle Island) Believe that everything that ever happened in a place is still going on there. If you bother to Look for it, you can Feel it.

3 In 30 Aquarius. The New and Full Moons primarily impact the 2-4 weeks following them. Find the complete chart for the 22 August Full Moon in the Expanding into Fear II post.

…namely, we have a Challenge between a double symbol of Rebirth and a double symbol of Death.4 This is not a Duel, but a more nuanced Conflict with many combatants and collaborators and involved spectators who have Skin in the Game.5 Our Self-Confidence is deeply Involved,6 as is The Integration of Feminine Power into our Life.7

4 Asteroid Klotho [Beginning New Fateful Adventures] Conjunct [Merged With] dwarf planet Haumea [Rebirth in an Unformed Molten State] on the Birth side, Square to [Challenged by – drawn as the shorter red line] two Strangers we’ve added to fill Vacancies, asteroid Requiem [Respect for Death] Merged With dwarf planet Cyllarus [Death in Combat] on the Death side. Centaur Cyllarus was Killed in the battle that Wounded Chiron.

5 The Square is part of a Grand Cross [Difficult and Complex Process involving many Related Issues – four planets equally spaced ’round the Zodiac, shown by the red square with a cross in the middle].

6 The other two corners of the Grand Cross are dwarf planet Chariklo [Self-Confidence and Self-Doubt ] – Chiron’s wife, and…

7 Two Fixed Stars, Al Rescha [Bringing two disparate Concept Sets together to Create Deeper Understanding] and Mirach [Harmony, Receptivity, Intuition, Magnetism, Collaboration].

Remember our first sentence? When we’re in a Life-and-Death Struggle, Certainty is the Order of the Day. We’re Certain that the Oxymoronavirus will kill us if we Let It. Or Wait! No, the Vaccine will Certainly Kill us! Meanwhile, Global Warming is Killing us, drowning some of us while we sleep. The Emperor has no Clouds. What is it that the Howlers Fear Most? Loss of Freedom, all seem to say.

Freedom to continue Life As It Was Known. Freedom to Blame the Threat to Survival on Viruses, Vaccines, Abortions, Masks, Political Opponents, anything which will Focus Attention on those Thoughts about the Fear that Life will Change drastically, because if the Caterwauling is loud enough, Influencing the Outcome of those Issues may be Possible. Won’t it be a shock when it’s discovered that Stopping Abortions and Vaccines and Viruses and Political Opponents doesn’t Stop Floods and Wildfires and Freezeouts. Won’t it be a shock when parents who risked their Children’s Lives sending them back to School discover that the Schooling that the Surviving kids received is worthless because it was only Relevant to Destroying the Earth.

In any four-cornered astrological Configuration, the Diagonals between the corners provide useful information. In this Death-Rebirth Configuration the Diagonals are Oppositions, usually signifying that two Concepts are Arguing, or if we aren’t in Resistance, that they’re willing to Cooperate.

The Rebirth corner Dances with the Integration of Feminine Power corner.8 If we’re indeed on the Cusp of Letting the Patriarchy Burn Itself Out, this will be a Delightful Dance. If we’re Terrified that our Investments in the Patriarchy are Bankrupt, then we’re likely to be Screaming into our Zoom Meetings that it’s Imperative to Bring Back Business-As-Usual, because that’s More Important (to them) than how many people are Dying.

The Death corner Dances with Self-Confidence and Self-Doubt.9 If we’re Confident we’re on our Path, then we’ll Embrace the Ego Death. If we’re in Self-Doubt, our Fear of Death will probably be Lit Up, and we might even be contemplating Physical Death.

But it’s not that simple. If we look closely we can see that both of these Oppositions are Mystery Schools.10 In a Mystery School we Learn something completely Surprising and Unexpected from the Dance, something that’s not accessible to the two-dimensional mind. If we’re Open to it, that is, and if we Avoid trying to “Figure It Out.” The Insights available are not accessible by the Mind, as they’re more multidimensional that the Mind is able to Grok. We have to be Mindful of the Presence of Thinking, Thank it and Bless It, and Open our Intuition instead.

There is something Profound to Learn, available to us over the coming week, about the Relationship between (Ego) Death and Confidence or Doubt, and something Profound for us to Learn about the Relationship between our Rebirth and our Integration of Feminine Power. Astrology does give hints about where to look for these Insights.11 Death and Confidence-Doubt are somehow tied up in this Adventure with Being More Open to Embracing our Hidden Genius and Acknowledging How We Were Punished For It in our Youth. Rebirth and Feminine Power are somehow bound up in this Workshop with Acknowledging our Guilt and Tapping It Out.

8 Klotho-Haumea Opposite Mirach-Al Rescha.

9 Requiem-Cyllarus Opposite Chariklo.

10 These Oppositions are both Yin Gates. The Klotho-Haumea to Mirach-Al Rescha Opposition is surrounded by a big blue “Golden” Rectangle, Golden because the ratio between the length of the sides and the length of the ends is the “Golden Angle” of Sacred Geometry fame, an Angle that is Replete in Nature. Its corners are Karma, Nemesis [Guilt], the Fixed Star Scheat [Creative Freedom from Conventional Thinking], and Sedna.

The Chariklo to Requiem-Cyllarus Opposition is also enclosed in a Golden Rectangle, but it’s drawn in thinner blue lines. It connects Ixion et al, Moon-Jupiter [Expanding our Instincts], Chaos-Asbolus [Intuitive Insight into our Unlimited Potential], and Sun-Thereus [The Places in our Essence where we’re Willing to Wrestle with Bears].

11 In the six diagonals embedded in each of the bisected Golden Rectangles…

For Rebirth-Feminine Power they’re the Karma-Scheat and Nemesis-Sedna Oppositions, Klotho-Haumea’s Quincunxes to Scheat and to Sedna, and Mirach-Al Rescha’s Quincunxes to Nemesis and Karma. Quincunxes are 5-Sign Angles, drawn in green lines.

For Death-Confidence they’re Chaos-Asbolus’s Opposition to Ixion-Pholus-GC, the Sun-Thereus Opposition to Moon-Jupiter, Chariklo’s Quincunxes to Chaos-Asbolus and Sun-Thereus, and Requiem-Cyllarus’s Quincunxes to Jupiter-Moon and Ixion-Pholus-GC.

These many Relationships are for Meditation, not Analysis – that’s 12 Meditations. If you’re up for that, more Power to you! Remember that Quincunxes represent Questions, not Answers or Statements. And Remember that in a Yin Gate, Oppositions will not be Arguments or Collaborations, but Paradoxes, like Zen Koans. What’s the Sound of One Bear Wrestling while Expanding? might be an example (Thereus Opposite Jupiter). The Insights in these Gordian Knots will be Personal, not Global. If you have any natal planets on Cusps, the Rewards from this Exploration may be Immense.
