Scrambled Time

January 31, 2022

Dunno how it is in your Neck of the Woods, but hereabouts Time is unbelievable Scrambled! I’ve totally missed a Moon Out of Bounds! It Left Town at 8:19 pm PST 27 January 2022, in 13 Sagittarius, and Came Back Home at 10:07 am PST 31 January, in 6 Aquarius. Which might explain why I missed it – while it was Vacationing, it crossed…

  • Asteroid Klotho (New Beginnings) at about 9am PST on the 28th in 21 Sagittarius,
  • Dwarf planet Ixion (Forbidden Genius) Out of Bounds 4am PST on the 29th in 3 Capricorn,
  • Mars (Action) OOB 7am PST on the 29th in 4 Capricorn,
  • Dwarf planets Quaoar and Pholus (Global Climate Change) 11am PST 29th 7 Capricorn,
  • Asteroid Vesta (Unconscious Limitations) 5pm PST 29th 10 Capricorn,
  • Venus (Values) 7pm PST 29th 12 Capricorn,
  • Asteroid Lachesis (Unexpired Karma that Can Be Let Go) OOB 11 pm PST 29th 14 Capricorn,
  • Dwarf planet Hylonome (Codependence) 10 am PST 30th 21 Capricorn,
  • Mercury (Miscommunication) Retrograde 6pm PST 30th 27 Capricorn,
  • Pluto (Compulsion) 8pm PST 30th 27 Capricorn,
  • Asteroid Juno (Growth in Consciousness) 12 am PST 31st 30 Capricorn,
  • Asteroid Nemesis (Guilt ) 2am PST 31st 1 Aquarius,
  • Dwarf planet Chariklo (Confidence) 9am PST 31st 5 Aquarius.

What a Gauntlet!

If you were Present enough to Remember anything Weird, or have a Diary, you may be able to find Information about yourself and your World in that list. For instance, suppose your natal Chiron (Despair and Miracles) is at 3 Capricorn. Then your Experience of the equivalent in your own Time Zone of Saturday morning PST could have been really Exciting as you were struck by Lightning-like Insights about how to put your Hidden Genius to Work, or Frustrated by your apparent Lack of Creativity as you Regress to when your Native Genius was Repressed, without Realizing that it was your Programmers that were Way Off Base, not you! Or Both at once!1

Or suppose you have natal asteroid Karma (Held Emotions) near 21 Capricorn. Then you may have spent the equivalent in your own Time Zone of Sunday morning PST Lamenting that you’ve never found a way to Express your Truth about the things that are Most Important to you.2

  • 1 As Mars and Ixion Danced with your Chiron whilst the OOB Moon Triggered Your Thoughts About Your Feelings. I’ll bet you didn’t Remember to Poor-Sweetheart yourself.
  • 2 Your own Codependence (Hylonome) wouldn’t want you to Burden anyone else with Stories that you Believe they’d Reject about the Limitations that you’ve always Believed are Real for you (your Perception that your Karma is Irrevocable), while the OOB Moon would be Bolstering your Limiting Beliefs.

Let’s get ahead of it and nail the next Moon OOB now. She goes Out of Bounds at 2:42 am PST 10 February 2022, in 12 Gemini, and comes back In Bounds at 1:36 pm on 14 February, in 6 Leo. On the Capricorn side of the Zodiac, the just-past OOB Moon Triggered thirteen different planets! While the Moon is OOB in Declination,3 it’s traveling fifty-some Degrees of Longitude, approximately the distance of a Septile (Being in the Right Place at the Right Time). The mid-February Moon crosses only three planets while it’s OOB! A Picnic! However, all three of them are Retrograde dwarf planets, and all three Out of Bounds themselves. At least we’ll have more time to Breathe between them! The three OOB dwarf planets are…

  • Dwarf planet Asbolus (Intuition) Retrograde and Out of Bounds at about 3am PST on 11 February, in 25 Gemini,
  • Dwarf planet Chaos (Unlimited Potential ) Rx and OOB 10 am PST 11th, 28 Gemini,
  • Dwarf planet Varuna (The Life Force) Rx and OOB noon PST 14th, 5 Leo.

If you have a natal planet, like for instance Mars, near 28 Gemini, you’ll be Experiencing, at the equivalent in your own Time Zone of the morning of 11 February PST, a semblance of a Triple Conjunction of Moon, Mars, and Chaos, with Moon Out of Bounds. Moon OOB tempts us to get Lost in Our Thoughts About Our Emotions, rather than Attending to how our Emotions actually Feel in our Bodies. Your Mars-Chaos Thoughts will connect you Intimately to your Karma, your old Grudges, your Perceived Slights and Insults, your Perceived Lifetime Rejections that appear to have Prevented you from “Being a Contender” at What You Want in your Life, and your Daydreams about What Could Have Been if only “they” hadn’t held you back. That’s all useful Information for Healing, but only if you Avoid Identifying with the Thoughts, and instead Focus on your Awareness that you’re Thinking, and how these Thoughts might point to a Direction that your Healing could take. But how likely is that?

Good, I would hope, but probably not for most of us most of the time, as our Culture has Trained many of us to Ignore as Unreliable everything except our Thoughts. “Chaos” – not Disorder, but the planetary Energy of Potential (which of course may well feel like Disorder!) – is what happens when we Transcend our Limitations and start to soar into our Zone of Genius.4 That means leaving behind all of the Reliable Landmarks that make us feel Safe. So at the very least we’ll probably be Feeling some Fear and Confusion. How do we usually Respond to Fear and Confusion? Well, it’s likely to Trigger our Fight or Flight Energies, so we may be preparing to Defend ourselves. With Mars involved, if we aren’t already Angry to some degree, we probably will be soon.

Our Emotions themselves around a Mars-Chaos Conjunction are likely to revolve around Excitement (Fear plus Breathing) and Frustration (Facing our Karmic Limitations Again). Actually Attending Intensely to where you’re Experiencing Frustration in your Body could well Heal some of your Limitations. I’ll paraphrase pp. 38-39 of Barry Grundland and Patricia Kay’s Cell Level Meditation

“Notice the Spaciousness surrounding your Body, and the No-Thing that it contains. Notice the Sensation of Frustration occurring in your Body. The Frustration may already have shifted a little bit just because you Noticed it. Notice that you Breathe In from the Empty Space around you. On the Out-Breath, take the Breath toward the Frustration. Like blowing into a balloon. Fully Breathe the Breath toward the Frustration, like sending a breeze in that direction.

“Notice the Frustration and Offer it the Breath. Open yourself to receive the Breath from the Spaciousness, Breathe it toward the Frustration. Notice how the Frustration Responds to the Breath. Experience how the Frustration Feels in your Body. Experience the Frustration and the Breath and the Spaciousness all together. Pretend you are the Frustration and Notice how the Breath Breathes. Experience Breath and Frustration in Synchrony, Breathing, Shifting. Stay with it. Keep Breathing.

“What happened?”

This is basically the same process that Joe Dispenza and Gary Craig teach, with somewhat different languaging. We can do the same with Excitement, if we aren’t too busy Enjoying our Daydreams about all of the Wonderful Things we’re going to Do when we’ve Permanently Transcended our Limitations.

At the equivalent in your Time Zone of mid-day PST on 14 February, we’ll be working with The Life Force, dwarf planet Varuna. The Key to Healing is to Focus on What’s Right rather than What’s Wrong. Our Body Feels Uncomfortable when it wants our Attention. Ignore our Dis-comfort long enough, and our Body will resort to Dis-Ease as it amps up its Efforts to get our Attention. What’s Right about Dis-Ease is that the Body now has our Attention. That’s too Precious to waste by Eliminating Symptoms. The Noticing and Breathing process above works well on Body Sensations that Trigger our Fear of Disease. Even if we Give Our Power Away to some pill-pusher or skin-slicer, we’ll still gain immensely by Breathing into our Fear of Disease Sensations. If nothing else, the Body’s instant access to the Universal Field5 can steer us toward pushers and slicers that are more likely to be Healing.

We want to Remember that Uranus in Taurus means that the Soul is Descending into the Body, and as this occurs, the Soul may be called to Rearrange some of our Internal Real Estate. So, many of our Fear-of-Disease Sensations may result from this Internal Reorg.6 In addition to Breathing from the Spaciousness around us, we may also want to Contact our own Soul and Enlist Their Cooperation as we begin these Meditations. If you aren’t in the Habit of Contacting and Enlisting your own Soul, you may gain from Mary Shutan’s The Body Deva, as the Body Deva is the Body’s Overarching Spirit. Or Gary Crag’s Unseen Therapist,, who plays the same Role, may be Easier for you to Contact and Enlist. Working with Joe Dispenza is top drawer, but his workshops are expensive (Mary’s book retails for US$17, Gary’s is free, and Joe does have many fabulous books, but they can get complicated quickly). And of course, you can just PIAVA Contacting and Enlisting your Soul.

  • 3 It’s not quite True, but it’s a lot Easier if you just think of Declination as Latitude (North-South), as compared to the 12 Signs, which measure Longitude (East-West). What astrology considers to be a Conjunction, is really just two planets on the same Longitude. They could be far apart in Declination or Latitude. One of them might be overhead, while the other could be out of sight over the Southern or Northern Horizon! We Expect a Conjunction to be more profound if the two planets are also close in Declination, as well as Degree – we call that a Parallel Conjunction, because “Parallel” is another name for Latitude. If you’re Korean, you know very well what the “38th Parallel” is. Are Parallel Conjunctions more Intense? Since the use of Declination is relatively rare in astrology, and not Easy to find, I’m not at all sure we really know.
  • 4 Gay Hendricks’s The Big Leap is an excellent alternative approach to our Zone of Genius.
  • 5 Otherwise Reliable Sources tell me that our individual Cells, all N gazillion of them, each of which of course have their own Consciousness, have immediate access to all of the Information in the Universe through their Mitochondria. This access can be Blocked by Toxins and by Held Emotions. Held Emotions are those which we’d rather Die than Feel. That is, our Karma, and our Limitations, the same ones that inhibit the Unlimited Potential indicated by dwarf planet Chaos. Here we’re sneaking up on our Held Emotions by approaching them through the Physical Body, assisted by our Spiritual Breath and our Guiding Mental Concepts. In other words, yes, we may well encounter some Ego Death (it’s not actually I Would Rather Die Than Feel That! as much as it’s My Current Ego Must Be Transcended Before I’m Willing or Even Able to Feel That! ) along the way.
  • 6 We of course are not intending any Diagnosis, Treatment, Cure, or Prevention of any Disease, we can be sure that the FDA does not approve, and we do not intend to compete with or diminish the AMA or any other medical or pharmaceutical providers or organizations. We’re just suggesting a style of Meditation that might be useful for several purposes and is unlikely to Interfere with other approaches.

Anxious Grace II

January 26, 2022

Seems like the Anxious is more obvious than the Grace, but that’s par for the course. What with Ukraine, Taiwan, Omycorn, Inflation, and widespread Insanity all threatening to Freak Out any minute, I thought it wise to warn us all when the next Moon Out of Bounds (Public Panic) will occur. Wall Street has been doing Yeoman’s Work Panicking all on their own, without even waiting for the Moon. That’s a bit worrisome, since Moon OOB usually raises the stakes of Panic.

The Moon, at any rate, moves Out of Bounds at 8:19 pm PST on 27 January 2022, in 13 Sagittarius, two hours after the Haumea Station that starred in the previous post. Emotions are more Prominent during Moon OOB, but as is our wont, we pay a lot more Attention to Our Thoughts About Our Emotions than we do to our actual Emotions, which are “just” Sensations in our Body, and Powerful Teachers when we Actually Listen to them. And when the Moon goes OOB the Minia (there’s nothing medium about it, with Milka Suckerberg and his ilk using it as their cash machine) is delighted to encourage those misplaced Anxious Thoughts with Headlines worthy of Panic.

Emotions and Reasons go together like gasoline and matches, and the Minia, pretending to be Maxia, loves to milk that by Manipulating us. The Moon returns to relative Sanity at 10:07 am PST on 31 January, in 6 Aquarius.

And that’s not our only distraction. Asteroid Nemesis (Guilt ) returned In Bounds at 5:15 pm PST on 24 January, in 28 Capricorn, and it enters Aquarius at 6:19 am PST on 30 January. We’ve only mentioned it so far, but Nemesis is a meaningful Contributor to our 27 January Haumea Station, aka Rebirth into Anxious Grace.

That Hawaiian mouthful Ka epaoka awela (Transcendence), the asteroid formerly known as “Bee-Zed,” as we noted in the previous post, is scheduled by our Rebirth to help us Transcend all of our Karma (Ka epa Stationary Conjunct South Node on 29 January), bless it’s Heart. Orbiting “backwards” in the Sky (relative to the other planets), it’s the Poster Child for Confusion is the First Stage of Growth.

And not to be outdone, Venus (Our Values) also Stands Still on 29 January. Venus and Mars are Playing Games with us lately – they’ll be Dancing cheek to cheek in a few weeks, but it’s not what you think. That’s another story for later.

Just Focus on what you’re Grateful For and you’ll be OK. If we aren’t Homeless, Hungry, Freezing or Roasting our Ass, and Sick, we have A Whole Lot to be Grateful for. Help us Make America Grateful Again, OK? I know, it never was, it was only a Legend in its own Special little Mind, but let’s Fake it till we Make it.

Anxious Grace I

January 25, 2022

Our next Big Event is a 27 January 2022 Rebirth,1 a Rebirth with a number of footnotes, starting with its location in the Zodiac. Haumea, the Goddess of Childbirth and Daughter of Hawaii’s Fiery Pele,2 stops and turns around 1/40th of a Degree short of Scorpio. She clearly thinks we weren’t finished Meeting Other, and that we haven’t entered enough Relationship Data into our Semi-Conscious Experience Database to be ready for the withering Critical Analysis that Scorpio will certainly craft from it. Our assignment requires that we review the last three Degrees of Libra for the second time between now and mid-July, then again till mid-November, when Haumea finally actually enters Scorpio.

  • 1 Dwarf planet Haumea Stationary Retro, 6:08 pm PST, in 30 Libra.
  • 2 Asteroid Pele, by the way, is a Near-Earth but not Earth-Crossing asteroid with an orbit of 3½ years. It’s perihelion (nearest) is 1.1 Earth-from-Sun Distances. Pele is in late Virgo, but now Retrograde, so it’s four Degrees out of an Exact Unx with Haumea when Haumea Stations. They were only two Degrees out of their Exact Unx when Pele Stationed on 9 January. Haumea and Pele will Complete their Waning Unx at the Ides of August in 29 Degrees. They Reunite in 1 Scorpio on 29 November 2022. Fire Goddess Pele in a Water Sign? No worries; even if Scorpio weren’t Fixed Water – Ice, Pele would just boil away the Water.

The last two Degrees of Libra are about Their3 Cardinal Air (Creative Intellect ) characteristic.4 They’re basically about whether we’ve Learned Deeply Enough to make our Contributions Epigenetic, or capable of being Communicated Biochemically and Etherically.

“In our culture, science is widely accepted as having the final say about what is ‘real’… The perennial wisdom of great spiritual traditions has survived the test of time, while the ‘science’ of every age up to now has been challenged, refined, and changed as our level of awareness and understanding has evolved… [This] may point to the notion that the very ‘solidness’ of the physical world isn’t as ‘real’ or unchanging as we may think.”

–Barry Grundland and Patricia Kay, Cell Level Meditation: the Healing Power in the Smallest Unit of Life, pp.28-9.

Haumea’s destination here, 28 Libra, “A person becoming aware of spiritual forces surrounding and assisting them,”5 is about Libra as Meeting Other, here A Rebirth in Meeting the Unseen. This is critical to our upcoming Quaoar-Pholus Initiation, as a fundamental requirement of our Survival is Reanimation of Gaia and Mother Nature.

“Our world, and who we are, is energy. It is consciousness itself. Some of it is denser (like our physical body) and some of it is not dense at all (like our spiritual nature), but it is all energy. I began to understand that our energy creates us and is on a continuum, with our physical bodies and lives simply being the most dense, or noticeable. Consciousness creates and forms everything that we think, do, and are, including our physical body. It creates us, and it creates the physical world, and if we change our energy, we change our world.”

Mary Shutan, The Body Deva: Working with the Spiritual Consciousness of the Body, p.15.
  • 3 Libra is Nonbinary, a Dynamic masculine Sign by order in the Zodiac but clearly Feminine in Her Role as Curator of the Scales.
  • 4 Roughly, “Three phrenological lumps indicating that we’ve Gained Wisdom rather than just Accumulated Information” in 30 Libra, and “Huperkind’s ongoing efforts to find knowledge that will endure” in 29 Libra. Check your Diary and mark your Calendar for 14 November 2021-16 April 2022 to explore the Wisdom part, and for 4 October-14 November 2021, 16 April-17 June 2022, and 6 August-3 October 2022 to explore the Epigenetic portion of our 5D Cultural and 5G Biological Evolution. In the Spirit of the Perennial Wisdom that It Is What It Is, and in response to our Personal Experience, we’re postulating that our Evolution into Tolerance for 5G (for those of us who’ve Consciously or Unconsciously Chosen to so Evolve rather than Move On) is part of Soul Evolving our Internal Organs as Uranus (Soul ) proceeds through Taurus (Matter), and we’re also postulating that 5G is a, if not the, prime Trigger for the Bolognavirus. Here’s an Insight into the Socioeconomic and cultural side of our 5G Evolution,
  • 5 Check your Diary and mark your Calendar for 11 August-4 October 2021, and 17 June-6 August 2022. The Direct Station is in 28 Libra on 12 July, so we’re likely to find the Insights more Prominent thereafter.
  • These dates are hard to follow, so lets chronologize them together…
    • 11 Aug-4 Oct 2021, Introduction to the Unseen.
      • 4 Oct-14 Nov 2021, Introduction to the Epigenetics.
        • 14 Nov 2021-28 Jan 2022, Introduction to the Wisdom.
        • 28 Jan-16 Apr 2022, Review of the Wisdom.
      • 16 Apr-17 Jun 2022, Review of the Epigenetics.
    • 17 Jun-12 Jul 2022, Review of the Unseen.
    • 12 Jul-6 Aug 2022, Belief in the Unseen.
      • 6 Aug-3 Oct 2022, Belief in the Epigenetics.
        • 3 Oct-13 Nov 2022, Belief in the Wisdom.
  • Haumea is New to the 30th Degree of Libra, but we aren’t New to Haumea in 29 Libra, having previously Experienced it Nov 2020-Apr 2021. Nor is Haumea New to 28 Libra, having Lived that in Nov 2019-Apr 2020, October-Nov 2020, and Apr-Jun 2021. We’re distinguishing the 2021-2022 occurrence because it’s the Final Review before our Rebirths occur in Scorpio. For instance, 1 Scorpio is about “A crowded sightseeing bus on a city street” – imagine being born into that scenario. Hupers Discovered Haumea when it was in 12 of Libra, “Miners are surfacing from a deep coal mine” – the Bolognavirus may really be Black Lung in disguise. Either way, it’s all just Invitations to Heal, and sometimes the Greater Healing is a Death, and not just because the Victim Deserved Killin’, like used to be legal in Wyoming.

The reason we refer to the Haumea Station as Anxious Grace comprises the second and third footnotes on the Station. Anxious because the major Challenge in the chart is from asteroid Damocles and Grace because the Challenge is Self-Resolving.6 We want to be careful about intervening in a Self-Resolving process because it’s very possible we can abort the Resolution by intervening.

  • 6 The only T-Square (Challenge) in the Haumea Station chart is to asteroid Damocles (Anxious because we have a sword dangling over our heads) from the pluripotent Opposition between Stationary (Strong) asteroid Ka epaoka awela on the South Node (Transcending All of Our Limitations) and Ceres-Sedna on the North Node (A Mission to Convert All of Our Fear into Power, Permanently). However, the Finger of the Goddess (the green wedge, meaning Pay Attention! ) also pointing to Damocles from asteroids Eurydike (Trust) and Cyllarus (a Battle to the Death) convert the T-Square into a Diamond Star (Self-Resolving T-Square). Hence the Grace. Plus, Damocles is one corner of a Grand Trine (the blue Triangle, meaning Dumb-Luck Blessings) in Air Signs (Intellect ) with Stationary (Strong) Haumea Herself, and dwarf planet Chaos (Unlimited Potential ), which is Out of Bounds (Even Stronger ). Hence more Grace. Then there’s the Grand Sextile (the blue hexagon around the whole chart, signifying Great Grace once we push the button to get it started ) – Grace Galore!

We also need to talk about the orange lines,7 but we’ll do that later.

  • 7 We painted this usually-red Grand Cross – with Haumea Herself in one corner and a pretty Remarkable Stellium (group of planets, this one about Remaining Stoic about Our Guilt ) on another – a different color so it wouldn’t be so hidden among all the foreground noise. What does remain pretty hidden is the Yin Gate or Mystery School around the Opposition between Haumea and asteroid Aletheia (Truth of the Heart ), which tells us that we’re being Reborn into the Truth of Our Heart, as long as we don’t screw it up by overthinking it. The box (Golden Rectangle which is blue) connecting Eurydike, Ceres-Sedna-North Node, asteroid Moira, and Ka epaoka awela-South Node, encloses the Yin Gate. If you squint you can see the two faint but definitive green Xs on each half of the double doors on the Gate.

Some self-explanatory Requiem for Huperity – pick your poison…











Global Climate Change II

January 17, 2022

Here’s a video from Hunga-Tonga-Hunga-Haapai, of Earth Goddess Pele Birthing her Dark Daughter Haumea at 0:15, then showing her face(s) – eye, Maoi-like nose and lips under very curly hair, at right and at 0:26 on the video…


The Rapa Nui had obviously seen this Lady and her Dark Offspring before, though they (the Rapa Nui ) copped out on the hair – and who could blame them when their medium was Basalt! Or, the Dark Sons of Pele are born bald…

Global Climate Change

January 15, 2022

Bob (in Australia) writes…

“In reply to: It’s possible that the February Quaoar-Pholus Initiation will bring ‘The Mother of All’ environmental catastrophes, or even ‘just’ a shift in the Collective Consciousness, so the Economy-Is-Stalling, COVID-Is-Mauling, Prices-Are-Appalling headlines will be replaced by Sky-Is-Falling headlines, because the 1% already own all of the media channels and politicians, and will move toward greater ad revenue and campaign contributions. This is only the Initiation of the ‘Birds singing joyously’ Cycle, and the Real Action isn’t likely to occur till the Waxing Square, which isn’t till 2081. Till then, the propaganda from those who are heavily invested in the old Oil-Driven Cycle will be overbearing, even if they’ve learned to disguise it as ‘Environmentalism,’ which they already are to some extent. It falls on us to Adapt – what is it that WE are Denying, to Believe that our own Survival, and that of our Planet and Species as we know them, depends on something as flibbertigibbet as politicians and news media? Mom Dirt could wipe them out with an Orbital Shrug, a Flick of her Magnetic Wrist, a Krakatoa-scale Volcanic Eruption, or a Twist in the Atlantic Currents that would put the new North Pole halfway between London and New York.

I’ve got a note from a previous blog to remind me of the exact conjunction of Quaoar and Pholus which is 8/2/2023 at 9 degrees Capricorn but you indicate this cycle will be initiated soon in February. As it is such a crucial cycle, I would dearly love if you could show us the chronological events relating to this cycle into the future and what we might expect accordingly through to the “Real Action” you indicate.

I hear you! Astrology is a game of always refining your estimates. Even the online software seems to use slightly different formulae for different levels of precision, as I often get slightly different answers in a by-minutes retrieval, than I get in a by-days or by-hours retrieval. I too was thinking that the actual Initiation wasn’t till 2023, till I looked it up again for 2022, perhaps with finer resolution than I had looked before, or perhaps I just misread the tables earlier, which is easy to do.

Or maybe Mother Gaia moved the date up and had her Friends in the publishing industry adjust all the emphemerides (and then getting their minds wiped or course) because Huperity wasn’t Paying enough Attention. Free Will works both ways.

I usually dial up years, then months, then hours, then minutes, and by then I often need to use “decimal degrees” because slower planets move less than an arcsecond per minute, so they might be in the same [Degree : arcminute : arcsecond] for hours and sometimes even days.

Here’s the ephemeris by minute for the 2022 Initiation… .
And the ephemeris by month for the next 40 years at… .

If you use True-Node much, I recommend that you send donations in US$ to Jonathan Dunn at 1977ub<at>gmail<dot>com, and while you’re at it, ask him to please get a certificate to shift True-Node from http: to https: to increase security. Once I get a date and UT (Universal Time, the Time that was formerly known as GMT or Greenwich Meridian Time) from True-Node, I use Serennu to get the locations of other planets near the same Degree… . Again, if you use Serennu much, I recommend that you send donations to Serennu at serennu<dot>com in UK£. Note that the Exact Conjunction occurs at 3:02 UT in True-Node, and 3:15 in Serennu – we’re always working with Approximations, or something like that.

The beginning of the New Quaoar-Pholus Cycle is a Looong process. Compare the Longitude of the Pholus RX Station each year, to the Longitude of Quaoar on the same date – it’s 421 years before their Separating Conjunctions are more than three Degrees apart!2 In other words, this struggle will be going on for Generations. One scienterrific Perspective is that if Huperity ever gets a handle on the CO2 Cycle, it will discover that the H2O Cycle is many times as powerful as the CO2 Cycle at heating the atmosphere…

  • 1 Probably a “coincidence,” but a bow and Namaste to Douglas Adams anyway.
  • 2 That is, beyond our usual Sensitivity or “Orb.” Pholus, a Centaur (ie Orbit is Elliptical), is near Aphelion (far out), while Quaoar, a Cubewano, is near Perihelion (close in). A planet is called a “Centaur” if it has an elongated orbit between Pluto and Jupiter, and may be a (temporarily) captured Comet. Pholus’s Elliptical Orbit is 92 years, running between 9 and 32 AU (An “AU” or “Astronomical Unit” is equal to the distance between the Earth and the Sun). A “Cubewano” is a Trans-Neptunian minor planet (“TNO” or Trans-Neptunian “Object”) out beyond Pluto, whose Orbit is not pushed around by Neptune’s Gravitational Forces. Quaoar’s Orbit is 289 years, and fairly round, between 42 and 46 AU.

My Experience is that the First Exact Conjunction3 of a Cycle sees the Unexpected Event that really gets our Attention and that seems at the time to be an Intractable Problem – this is the Initiation of the New Cycle. I’ve never seen prior almost-Conjunctions have a heck of a lot of time-specific impact, though on the scale of years we’ve certainly seen the typical pre-Initiation clamor arise against the “Blah..Blah..Blah” of the Old-Cycle Defenders. The subsequent Conjunctions, of which there can be many, half of which are Retrograde, explicate the Problem and allow us to get a Handle on it, if we’re Focused on the New Cycle and willing to do the Grunt Work behind the scenes till the Waxing Square. Most people will be Focused on trying to Protect their Investments in the Old Cycle and Greenwashing it.

  • 3 As opposed to prior, “Applying” Almost-Exact Conjunctions, and subsequent “Separating” Exact Conjunctions when they repeat. In the case of any Transiting (Current) Hard Angles that repeat, the First Exact one is the “Can-Opener” of the sequence. Note that “Applying” and “Separating” apply to individual Angles, while “Waxing” and “Waning” apply to Cycles. An “Inexact” Angle is one that’s within Sensitivity or Orb, but which doesn’t actually Consummate.

This suggests that the 21 February Initiation will Surprise us. Maybe suddenly everyone will realize that we need to Reanimate Nature before we can Change anything…

Those kinds of sudden Unimagined Mass Psychic Shifts do happen. Ursula Leguin describes it pretty well in her short book The Lathe of Heaven. Maybe the Oil and Coal Industries will Collapse or Capitulate, Mansion and Cinema will newly Discover their lost shards of Huperity amidst their vast Avarice, and all of them will Learn to Install or Manage Solar Panels and Windmills and get down to Work. Maybe One of those new solid-electrolyte Batteries that last 100 hours and 500 miles on a charge, recharge in five minutes, and don’t Explode, will hit the market and suddenly everyone will be on the same page. Or maybe the Shinolavirus Omega Deviant will scare the BlahBlahBlah out of everybody. Mother N has already sent us a preview of what could happen, and the Perp wasn’t even the North Koreans (see…

A Pleasant or Very Shocking Surprise might create an instant version of that “well-established culture” that everyone “accepts unreservedly” and causes not just the Incarcerated Birds, but everyone, to sing Joyously…

Everyone except the Power-Hungry Narcissist Fear-Peddlers of course. Or maybe we’ll discover that Global Climate Change, the Shinolavirus, Imperialism, Supply Chains, Inflation, Hypersonic Missiles, the Landings, Misinformation, and Toilet Paper weren’t really the Problem all along, only the peripheral symptoms of the Real Problem.

Cereus Full Moon

January 14, 2022

The 17 January 2022 Full Moon1 and the 14 January Emphasis on Sustainability2 combine to make this a very Anxious weekend.

  • 1 Full Moon (Illumination of our Instincts) in 28 Cancer, 3:48 pm PST 17 January.
  • 2 Station of dwarf planet Ceres (Sustainability, Sustenance), 1:21 pm PST 14 January, in 28 Taurus.

We know Intuitively that there is Hope that we can Transcend our Limitations and make our Connection to our Lifetime Mission Permanent and Sustainable, yet the Fear and Anger embedded in our Limitations make us Anxious that we could Blow Up the Life we’ve worked so hard to Create.3 We Crave Liberation, Enlightenment, and 5D, but we aren’t sure that we can pull that off without Destroying or Letting Go of the Other Things that we Cherish.

  • 3 Asteroid Damocles T-Square (Challenging us to Become Adept at Recognizing and Neutralizing Anxiety) to the Opposition between the Stellium (Group of planets) of dwarf planets Ceres and Sedna on the North Node and the Stellium of asteroids Ka epaoka awela, Pandora, and Atlantis on the South Node: We know Intuitively (Ka epaoka awela) that there is Hope (Pandora) that we can Transcend (Ka epaoka awela) our Limitations (South Node) and make our Connection to our Lifetime Mission (North Node) Permanent and Sustainable (Ceres), yet the Fear and Anger (Sedna) embedded in our Limitations (South Node) make us Anxious (Damocles) that we could Blow Up (Atlantis) the Life we’ve worked so hard to Create.

Do we still have the Stamina to Ace that Dream Job we’ve been Offered? Can we pull it off without getting Nailed by Long COVID? Can we Trust the Flow enough to Let Go of the Abundance we have now? If we Invest it in the Future, will we Run Out before we get there, and end up Homeless? We may have to do some careful and iterative formulations of our seemingly Contradictory Wants, and rephrase our Negative Fears as Positive Wants, and do a number of Both/And PIAVAs. It’s the Dualistic Linear Mind that Believes in the Either/Ors that adorn our Limitations. Reality is Unlimited because it’s always Both/And.

Meanwhile, we have to Face the Truth of the Compulsive Guilt that keeps us Believing that we Can’t, or Dare Not, or “They” Won’t Let us, Get what we Really Want.4

  • 4 Asteroid Aletheia (Truth of the Heart ) T-Square to the Opposition between the Conjunction of Moon and dwarf planet Cyllarus and the Stellium of asteroids Juno and Nemesis, Pluto, and the Sun. Juno is about Growth in Consciousness, Nemesis is about Guilt and is Out of Bounds or Strong, Pluto implies Compulsion, and Cyllarus is about Death. Cyllarus was Killed in the Big Battle where Pholus accidentally Killed himself, and Chiron was “mortally” Wounded. We know Cyllarus because the namesake of dwarf planet Hylonome, our ultimate symbol of Codependence, was Cyllarus’s Lover, and promptly Killed herself with the same spear that Killed Cyllarus. So the Cyllarus symbol is woven with a layer of Complexity around Guilt and Sovereignty.

Let’s quote from Gay Hendricks’s The Big Leap: Conquer Your Hidden Fears and Take Life to the Next Level, pp.43ff…

“The false foundation under the Upper Limit Problem is a set of four hidden barriers based on fear and false belief. Every person I’ve worked with has uncovered at least one of the barriers, and sometimes two or three… The Four Hidden Barriers all have something in common: although they seem true and real, they are based on beliefs about ourselves that are neither true nor real. The fact that we unconsciously take them as true and real is the barrier holding us back. We take them as true and real until we shine awareness on them. The the barriers dissolve, and we are free. That moment is profound. It feels wonderful; we remember it forever. It is the occasion of our ultimate liberation. Although I have myself experienced that joyful moment and have witnessed it hundreds of times, I am still deeply moved every time it occurs…

“Hidden Barrier no. 1: … A feeling that I’m fundamentally flawed in some way...

“Hidden Barrier no. 2: … I cannot expand to my full success because it would cause me to end up all alone, be disloyal to my roots, and leave behind people from my past…

“Hidden Barrier no. 3: Believing That More Success Brings a Bigger Burden…

“Hidden Barrier no. 4: … I must not expand to my full success, because if I did I would outshine ____ and make him or her look bad.”

In the chart below we find a prominent blue six-sided Hexagon. That’s called a Grand Sextile, and it’s one of the best planetary Configurations we can find, because it provides Massive Grace. Besides the other clues in the chart,5 the Grand Sextile tells us that all this Sturm und Drang which we may be Encountering is a Paper Tiger. It’s a Healing. The Anxiety and Guilt we’re dealing with, is the Healing of Anxiety and Guilt for us.

There is one Caveat with a Grand Sextile. We have to Initiate the Grace by Taking the First Step. However, that can be as Easy as Asking for Grace. A great First Step is always to find our Observer Self and Ask Ourself What Am I Feeling Right Now? Lets say it’s Fear, as an example. Then say to yourself, I Am Scared, and sit with that for a minute, so you know well how it Feels. Then say to yourself, I Feel Scared, and sit with that for a minute. Can you Feel the Difference? In the first case you are the Fear, in the second, you are observing the Fear. Now say to yourself, You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Fear, aren’t you, and sit with that for a minute. Now you’re Compassion for yourself. Can you Feel that difference?

Full Ego Ahead won’t deliver Grace from a Grand Sextile, we have to use Full Collaboration With Spirit Ahead instead, especially since this Grand Sextile occurs in the Magnetic or “Feminine” Signs. It makes those Both/And PIAVAs all the more Important, as those will serve as your Initiatory Request for Grace, and as Instructions for how you Want the Grace Applied.

  • 5 The involvement of the Sun, the Nodes, and asteroids Aletheia (Truth of the Heart ), Juno (Growth in Consciousness), and especially Ka epaoka awela (Transcendence) promise Healing Outcomes.

Busy Week

January 11, 2022

‘Tis a busy week, so I better review it briefly because I’m sure I won’t have time to cover it all thoroughly…

We’re past the Eris Station (Denial ), but that doesn’t mean that things we’ve been Denying won’t still Ask for our Attention, or rise up and Bite us in the Butt. If you do Encounter a Shocker, like a wildfire or a flood or tornado in your back yard, a COVID surprise, Quarterly Taxes due, a relative’s birthday, or a presentation by Dr. Joe, you might want to Wonder if it has anything to do with anything you’re in Denial about.

Otherwise, the next Big Deal is a Station of Uranus (Soul ) on 18 January 2021 (7:25 am PST, in 11 Taurus). There are other astroevents in between, but being a Biggie, we’re likely to be Feeling this already, coloring the other events. Details below…

10 January 2022, 9:16 pm PST: Asteroid Vesta (Our Unconscious Limitations) moves into Capricorn, where said Blocks to What We Want may have more Pragmatic ramifications, maybe making them Easier to Identify. Vesta has been in Sagittarius (Letting Go of or Limitations, which I think you’ll find was more subtle than you Expected, even though you worked yer Butt off on it – you may soon be Surprised at what’s “suddenly” no longer a Block) since 11 November. It’ll be in Capricorn till 10 March.

12 January, 1:36 am PST: Asteroid Eurydike (Trust ) Stationary (Amplified ), in 27 Virgo, Challenging (Squaring) dwarf planet Asbolus (Intuition). Lessons in Trusting our Intuition. See also the 17 January Full Moon below.

12 January, 1:37 pm PST: Mars (Action) goes Out of Bounds (Exaggerated ) in 22 Sagittarius till 10 February (3:31 pm PST) in 13 Capricorn. Good time to ferret out the Ancient Karma that Amplifies our Current-Moment Irritations and causes us to Unconsciously Identify with our Banes – when we Are angry rather than Feel Angry. Healthy Anger tells us that we need to Set a Boundary, and it should be so Automatic that we don’t really Feel what we’ve been calling Anger, we just Know that we need to say No to something. Without our Backlog that wouldn’t be a Big Deal. An Excellent time to Practice with our Mirrors. Persistent Anger indicates a Hole in our Aura, and by dilligently and persistently Practicing our Mirrors, our Aura expands to Fill the Hole.

13 January, 9:23 pm PST: Moon Out of Bounds (Amplified Instincts) in 13 Gemini, till 6:09 am 18 January in 6 Leo. Expect everyone to run to one side of the Boat when something Shocking happens, or something Feared appears to be Verified. By the time the Moon returns In Bounds, the Panic will have subsided, but there may be incomplete Recovery from the Initial Panic. Last time this happened on a weekday, the US stock market (DJI) had an Ohmycorn! Panic, crashed 1000 points and didn’t Recover till a day and a half after the Moon came back In Bounds, though that one was closer to the Full Moon than this one. What might Trigger Panic this week? Ukraine?

14 January, 3:41 am PST: Mercury (Mentality, Communication, Travel ) Stationary (Emphasized) Retrograde in 11 Aquarius, Square to Stationary Uranus (see 18 January below). We may receive Insights about how to increase our Receptivity to our Soul’s Descent into our Body. Mercury is Retrograde till 3 February (8:12 pm PST in 25 Capricorn). Rumor has it that Contracts signed while Mercury is Retrograde often have to be renegotiated or are otherwise difficult. Travel is also supposed to be difficult, though when I’ve Traveled with Mercury Retrograde, I’ve just Reminded myself to be Patient about apparent problems and take it Easy, and haven’t had any problems. I think like Moon OOB, it’s our Reactions to apparent hiccups that gets us in Trouble, which is to say that Mercury Retrograde and Moon Out of Bounds are likely to Trigger Anxiety.1

  • 1 Our Chief Asteroid Officer has been riffing on asteroid Koronis, which was likely named for one of several women in Greek Mythology named Coronis, and finding a number of interesting connections to Coronavirus COVID-19. During the Mercury Station, Koronis Opposes Mercury and Squares Uranus from Leo. The asteroid is Associated with Crow and Raven. The Moronavirus may be the Trigger for Moon-OOB Anxiety this fortnight as well as the last. It’s certainly in the headlines tonight, again disrupting the Supply Chain in China.

14 January, 7:30 am PST: Dr. Joe (Dispenza) Livestream presentation from one of his Live Workshops on their current research, followed by a Meditation. The last time he did this, it was mind-bending. As I recall, that one was a couple hours long.

14 January, 1:21 pm PST: Dwarf planet Ceres (Sustainability and Sustenance) Stationary (Amplified ) in 28 Taurus. We’ll have to write more about this one, since dwarf planet Sedna (Converting Fear to Power) sits at 29 Taurus these days. The first step toward Sustainability is always Sustenance (eliminating the Unnecessary). See 17 January Full Moon below.

16 January, 2:02 am: Asteroid Sappho (Self-Love) enters Aries, which should be a Relief from all that Piscean Sturm und Drang. Other than Wretches Like Me programming, how can we possible not Love our own Spirit? I know, it happens. Remember your Poor-Sweethearting. Sappho’s been in Pisces since 17 November and stays in Aries till 10 March.

17 January, 3:48 pm PST: Full Moon in 28 Cancer. This one, combined with the Ceres Station (14 January above), will likely be Anxious, but it’s about Healing, not Trauma, so we want to be Present with our Observer Self and Notice, “Hey, I’m Feeling Anxiety!” and carefully Avoid Identifying with Our Thoughts About Our Feelings. Treat it like a Meditation, where when you catch yourself you say to yourself, “Oh, There’s Thinking Again! I Appreciate Thinking, but now’s not the time. Thanks anyway!”

18 January: US federal income taxes due for those who pay quarterly, delayed from the 15th by the weekend and the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.

18 January, 6:09 am PST: Moon returns In-Bounds in 6 Leo. See 13 January Moon Out of Bounds.

18 January, 7:25 am PST: Uranus (Soul ) Stationary (Prominent ), in 11 Taurus. We’ve probably already been Feeling this for a week or more. As we Adapt to 5G, Prepare for 5D, and Witness our Soul Descending into our Body, our Organs get move around a bit, with potential serious Discomfort. We can try to Tough It Out, but better to take time out and Adapt our personal Habits as well. When our Body tells us to take a Break (by Feeling Pain or Discomfort), we should be assuming a Comfortable Posture and Breathing into our Discomfort. We’ll talk about this more when we finish our post on 5D versus 5G.

Start by closing your mouth and breathing in and out through your Nose for several minutes to Activate your Parasympathetic Nervous System (the Restful one) and Deactivate your Sympathetic Nervous System (the Fight/Flight/Freeze one). Take several minutes to be Present with the Empty Space surrounding your Body. Then, while you Inhale, Imagine Breathing some of this Space in through your High Heart, in the center of your chest a few inches below your clavicle. As you Exhale, Imagine Directing your Breath to the Discomfort or Pain in your Body. Imagine the Space around your Discomfort Softening rather than Clenching. This takes a lot of Concentration, so it’s hard to do while doing other things, but maybe that’s the whole Point.

That Big River in Egypt

January 8, 2022

This weekend is about Getting in Touch with Things We Don’t Usually Notice, aka Denial.1 Before we go any further we need to Remind that Denial is a Healthy Psychological process, one that Allows us to postpone Dealing with that which we aren’t yet Ready to Handle, quite possibly because it would Overwhelm us and even Shatter our Ego. Unless we’re independently wealthy and completely Devoted to Striving for Enlightenment,2 it’s far Easier, and far more conducive to Survival, to Operate with an Ego in Denial, than it is to Try (and Fail) to Operate with a Shattered Ego. The Standard Rule is that when the Ego Shatters, if we don’t want to make things even worse, we need to Stop Everything and put an Ego back together.

  • 1 Dwarf planet Eris Stationary 10 January 2022, 8:49 pm PST, in 24 Aries.
  • 2 Which of course is an Oxymoron, putting Striving and Enlightenment in the same sentence. Unless of course it’s a Paradox, like one hand clapping.

Any Ego is better than none. Think Mr. Dumpty – he could at least Acknowledge how Heroic the shards of his Shell would be for adding Calcium to the Compost Pile, or how Tasty and Nutritious his yolk will be for a hungry local Crow, or invest his Ego in Mama Chicken’s Creative Skills and hope for Reincarnation as a self-professed Star like You-Know-Who (who used to be a Dinosaur after all!). As long as we’re still Intact, we can PIAVA that the Denial which arises for us is something that we’re now Ready to Handle. Most of the time, that’ll be the case.3 We can also do some Preparatory Work on what might arise. For instance, the Eris Station chart advises that we look for any Sources of Guilt, Narcissism, or Self-Abandonment.4

  • 3 From the Jungian Perspective, the Unconscious is our Friend and Guide. However, it does have a Reputation for Amplifying Issues when our Ego repeatedly Ignores its Wisdom, eventually whacking us over the head to get our Attention.
  • 4 As we’ll see from the chart, the Eris Station Conjoins (is Merged With) asteroid Aletheia, or The Truth of the Heart. If for some reason (such as Codependence or Naivete) we’ve been Betraying our own Core Values, this may come to our Attention. The Station also Opposes asteroid Narcissus. A true Narcissist is incapable of discovering their Narcissism, but we all have traces of the Affliction, which may come to Light for us. And most blatantly, the Eris-Aletheia-to-Narcissus Opposition is T-Squared (Major Challenge) by a whole Gang of planets that may Harass us – Nemesis (Guilt), Pluto (Compulsion), Juno (Growth of Consciousness), and the Sun (our Essence).
  • But of course an even Stronger Impact may come from any natal planets we may have within a Degree or two of 24 Aries. For instance, one Friend has dwarf planet Hylonome (Codependence) there, and another has dwarf planet Sedna (Converting Fear to Power) there.

We also, horror of horrors, discovered while doing the Eris Station chart, that asteroid Karma went Out of Bounds during the afternoon of New Years Eve! 5 A planet that’s Out of Bounds is Amplified. The last thing we need is to have our Karma Amplified!

Or is it? We know that Karma died in 2012, right?6 And we know that we need to Let Go of our Restrictive Karmic Patterns in order to Achieve 5G, right? So what could be better than having our Karma front and center? What, we’d prefer to Deny it? Wouldn’t that be Timely. We’ll see if the Universe will Let us Get Away with that, eh? In the Eris Station chart, asteroid Karma is Merged with Transcendence and Hope, but Challenged by Anxiety.7 So we want to Watch for Feeling Worried, Scared, Nervous, Nauseous, Panicky, Ungrounded, Flibbertigibbety, or any other synonym that we use to Deny our Anxiety, because it may be our Anxiety that we’ve been Denying and that we’re now Ready to Learn to Recognize, Notice, Embrace, and Grant Its Rightful Place on our mantel among the Panoply of Legitimate Feelings that Grace our Life.

  • 5 Asteroid Karma went Out of Bounds at 3:47 pm PST 31 December 2021, at 17 Scorpio, and won’t Behave itself again till 8 March 2023 (4:55 am PST), at 9 Aquarius – more than a year of Amplified Karma! I’ve never Knowingly Experienced Amplified Karma, though I’ve obviously Experienced it Unknowingly many times. Over the last fifty years or so, asteroid Karma has gone Out of Bounds every year or so, and stayed Out of Bounds for about a year each time. It’s schedule is Irregular, its OOB periods and intervening In-Bounds spans ranging from four to sixteen or more months each. The median for both periods is thirteen months.
  • 6 Karma is often defined as a result of Cause and Effect, but for that to work, Effect must follow Cause in Time. If Linear Time is defunct, so is Karma. We know by Observation that Karma no longer Grabs Us, We Grab It, simply because it’s what we’re used to so it’s what we Expect, and almost always, What We Expect Is What We Get. When we Get something else, we get Confused, and our Accustomed Reaction to Confusion is usually to Figure Out What’s Wrong so we can Fix it. But Confusion is just an Emotion, and Emotions need to be Accepted just as they are, and Experienced as Sensations in our Body, Lest we get misled, often Disastrously so, by Our Thoughts About Our Feelings.
  • 7 In the Eris Station chart, asteroid Karma Conjoins asteroids Pandora (Hope) and Ka epaoka awela (formerly known as Bee-Zed, and meaning Transcendence), and makes a Naked Square to asteroid Damocles (Anxiety). A Naked Square is one that stands alone and is not part of a larger Configuration like a T-Square or a Grand Cross. It’s Simpler, but not necessarily Easier.

There is Grace in the chart, and it has mostly to do with Acknowledging any Intuitive Sense that we’ve been too Selfish, and if so, immediately reversing course and Making Amends. If you Feel Anxious, check to see if this might be the Source; you could Discover that you’re also in Denial about your Intuition, which is Very Strong here.8 That could be Life-Changing. There is also the Suggestion that we can Trust ourself to be more than Competent to handle this Complex Challenge.9

  • 8 Dwarf planet Asbolus (Intuition), which is Out of Bounds (Amplified ), makes a Grand Trine (Dumb-Luck Grace) with asteroids Narcissus (Excess Selfishness) and Damocles (Anxiety).
  • 9 Aletheia-Eris is the Focus of a Finger of the Goddess (Pay Attention! ) from the Sextile (Graceful Relationship) between asteroids Karma, Pandora, and Ka epaoka awela (see note 7 above) and asteroid Eurydike (Trust).

We Are In Charge of Our Reality II

January 8, 2022

Well, we left the cookies and milk next to the fireplace like it said in the Contract, and even a shot of our best single-malt (it’s cold up there in the skyways), but all we got was a lump of Coal.1 Why? Because the “We” that’s in charge of our Reality unfortunately includes the rest of the “We” that we don’t include in our concept of “I.” We all have a Shadowy part of ourself that stretches into the Unconscious, and the More Defined is our “I,” the Longer and Darker is our Shadow.2 And unfortunately, that Dark “We” is often a more Powerful Manifester than our “I” is.3

What to do about that? I don’t know of any Options that are stronger than Cozying up to the hidden part of our “We.” And we’re in luck, as the next Energy Pulse from the Universe that will be using us as a punching bag, is all about Exactly That, namely, That Which We’ve Been Denying.4 Denial is a Healthy Psychological process, Allowing us to postpone dealing with Energies which we aren’t ready to handle yet. Well, the Blocks to whatever we failed to Manifest as Desired, are likely to be in our Face for the next several days, so the time has come. These Blocks, when Personalized,5 represent our hidden “We.”

  • 1 Manifestation, as represented by dwarf planet Makemake, has been Exaggerated this week, as Makemake was Stationary at 7:29 am PST today, 6 January 2022, at 8:49 Libra. The Energy of a Stationing planet usually increases up to the moment of its Exact Station, and then drops off sharply. The more Conscious we are about the Station, the sharper the dropoff. For instance, if we Monitored our Thoughts and Feelings this last week, Lovingly Embraced All of them, and made Efforts to replace the more Negative amongst them with Gratitude or WhatWeWant, we probably had some Manifestation success. If we instead Made Decisions about what we needed to Do to “Fix” our Negative Thoughts and Feelings and Circumstances, then the Manifestation Energy will stay with us, and those Decisions, centered as they were around the Negative, will have Created Negative Instant Karma which we’ll now have to deal with.
  • 2 We are actually Infinite Energy Vortexes, our Huper Body-Mind-Emotion Complex being merely a Transitory, less-than-Skeletal Manifestation of What We Really Are. So the more we’ve Defined Who We Believe Ourselves to Be, the more we’ve boxed our Conscious Energy into one Side of a long Dimension that our Energy-Vortex-Self owns All of. For instance, Failure is a Powerful Teaching tool, and if we’ve Defined our Identity as Successful, we’ve closed off a very large Source of Growth.
  • 3 The Jungian Perspective is that our Foremost Urge is toward Wholeness. So the parts of our Wholeness that we’ve excluded from our Identity, try repeatedly to get our Attention. The more we Resist their Efforts and Suppress those parts, the more Insistent they must become. So they Manifest Challenges for us. A Makemake Station, where Manifestation is Amplified, can be either a great Opportunity to Manifest What We Want, or a great Opportunity to Identify (and, seemingly perversely, to Identify With) those Challenges, adding a whole new level of meaning to the meme “If it doesn’t make us Stronger, it will Kill us.” The Jungian Shadow isn’t Negative, it’s merely what’s hiding outside the Light of your Conscious Attention.
  • 4 Dwarf planet Eris, symbolizing Denial, is Stationary (Amplified ) at 8:49 pm PST 10 January 2022, at 24 Aries.
  • 5 Scienterrific types often make fun of “Primitive” people who Personalize all of the Energies in their Lives as Critters in their Myths, but Scienterrorists do it too – like “Newtonian” physics and “Pavlovian” psychology. It’s a Healthy process, akin to Accessing our Physical ailments through our Emotions, or distinguishing our own offspring from the neighborhood rabble by Naming them. Of course astrologers do this all the time, substituting Names like Makemake for a Big Complex of Energies associated with Manifestation or Eris for a Whole Array of Energies associated with Denial.

We’ll look at the astrodynamics of that impending Amplication of our Denial shortly. But while it’s still warm, I want to look more closely at that Yin Gate Mystery School we spoke of in the previous post, the Paradox that we introduced in Note 4 of that post. Spoiler Alert – this will be a Deep Dive, but you’ll Learn a lot of useful things!

The Yin Gate is the almost-horizontal blue rectangle divided by the long red line, that we’ve emphasized in heavy lines. The blue rectangle by itself is called a Golden Rectangle because the ratio between its long Trine sides and its short Sextile sides, is the Golden Ratio of Sacred Geometry fame. Much of the Natural World has been Designed around the Golden Ratio (1.618…), also known as the Golden Angle (137.5… Degrees), or Phi.6 The long red line is the Central Axis of the Yin Gate.

  • 6 The decimals keep going – the Natural World wasn’t Designed using Base 10. We’ve defined a 222½ Degree Angle (360-137.5) in astrology as the Phitile which we consider to be the place where the Energy of a Cycle is Complete, before it begins to Break Down (Wane) into the Void that Empties us so we’re Ready to Receive the Next Cycle without Prejudice.

A Yin Gate is a Mystery School, where we Learn to move beyond the Linear Dualistic Mind into Unitary Multi-Dimensional Knowledge, the realm of Instinct and Intuition. For the sake of brevity, we usually interpret a Yin Gate by focusing on the Central Axis, and how the Yin Gate changes an Opposition from a Second-Harmonic Argument between the two planets, to an Overview of the Dimension that they Delineate. For instance, we might consider an Opposition between Chiron (Despair and Miracles, which we might summarize as Mood ) and Makemake (Manifestation) to be about how Despair Manifests more Despair and Miracles Manifest more Miracles. But as the Central Axis of a Yin Gate, the implication is that it’s more complicated (Multi-Dimensional), yet simpler than that (Unitary), which we can only hope to understand Intuitively.

We easily recognize a Yin Gate by the two side-by-side green Xs that represent Quincunxes between the two ends of the Central Axis and the four corners of the Golden Rectangle. A Quincunx (two planets five Signs apart) implies Curiosity, but not the sort of Curiosity which Inspires us to dig relentlessly for an “Answer” to a Dilemma. Instead, it’s more Curiosity in the sense that it indicates an Awesome Relationship, one that will make our jaw drop, if we can succeed in not intellectualizing it. As with a Yin Gate, if we address it with the Linear Dualistic Mind, we miss the point.

So for instance, Uranus Quincunx Makemake – does that mean that a Successful Manifestation is one that Aligns with our Soul? If the Manifestation makes our jaw drop, that’s probably true. I recall some of the Miracles that Manifested for Kriyananda while he was Founding Ananda. And you’ve all probably Experienced Synchrony,7 where you’re in the Right Place at the Right Time to Receive Gifts from the Universe. It always feels like Someone on the Other Side of the Veil is Looking Out for us! And was the Veil ever thin today! I expected it to Rip at any moment.

  • 7 Look for Angles in the Seventh-Harmonic (the Charioteer, In Stillness, but always Poised for Action at a Moment’s Notice) Septile series in your Natal chart to Explore your Natural Synchrony – 51½° (360/7), 103°, 154½°, 206°, 257½°, 309°.

But the point of a Quincunx is New Insight that’s Unexpected and Surprising, or Curious. In the Makemake Station Yin Gate, we have Quincunxes between Uranus and Makemake, Makemake and Moon, Chiron and Atropos-Zhulong, and between Chiron and Requiem-Thereus.

  • Think of a Relationship that you would logically Expect to see between Soul and Manifestation (Uranus-Makemake). That’s the Linear Either/Or Mind speaking. Now, have you been Surprised in the last week or so to Discern an Unexpected Relationship between Soul and Manifestation, a Relationship that you sort of Grok but which would be difficult for you to Describe in words?
    • For instance, I perhaps naively Expect Manifestations that Align with my Soul to be Easier or more Profound than Manifestations that don’t so Align. And actually, I have seen Unexpected Connections, as I’ve been able to Glimpse the Diamonds embedded in my own personal Lump of Coal.
  • Think of a Relationship that you would logically Expect to see between Instinct and Manifestation (Moon-Makemake). Now, have you been Surprised in the last week or so to Discern an Unexpected Relationship between Instinct and Manifestation, a Relationship that you sort of Grok but which would be difficult for you to Describe in words?
    • I guess I see Instinctual Manifestation as the things I Manifest without having to even Think about it. I had to think about it, but I can see how I’ve Become Aware of Skills I hadn’t been Appreciating and toward which I can probably gain from Being Grateful for them.
  • Think of a Relationship that you would logically Expect to see between your Optimism/Pessimism and your Recognition and Acceptance of 5G 5D (Chiron to Atropos-Zhulong).8 Now, have you been Surprised in the last week or so to Discern an Unexpected Relationship between your Optimism/ Pessimism and your Recognition and Acceptance of 5G 5D, a Relationship that you sort of Grok but which would be difficult for you to Describe in words?
    • I’m certainly less likely to be Skeptical about 5G 5D when I’m Feeling Optimistic. And when I Consciously Stepped Out of the Depression I Felt about Receiving a Lump of Coal, I was Surprised how Easy it was to envision Living Cooperatively with the many Elemental Beings in my Life, though it’s Clearly going to take a Whole Lot of Practice!!
  • Think of a Relationship that you would logically Expect to see between your Optimism/Pessimism and your Respect for Ego Death as a Teacher and Coach (Chiron to Requiem-Thereus).9 Now, have you been Surprised in the last week or so to Discern an Unexpected Relationship between your Optimism/Pessimism and your Respect for Ego Death as a Teacher and Coach, a Relationship that you sort of Grok but which would be difficult for you to Describe in words?
    • The Energy of Ego Death is by Definition a Downer, but yes, when I was Conscious enough to do an Intervention on myself, like Tapping or Poor-Sweethearting, it was definitely a Profound Teacher and Coach, feeling like one of those Other-Siders looking out for me – which in itself was an Unexpected Surprise! 10

That’s diving pretty deep, but if we’re serious about doing our Inner Work, it’s a good example of how a Yin Gate can lead us Deep into the Labyrinth when we go beyond just interpreting the Central Axis as a Mystery School (which is the Most Important Part of a Yin Gate, because it summarizes the rest).

  • 8 Minor planet Zhulong represents the Chinese Red Dragon of Enlightenment (ie, 5G 5D), and asteroid Atropos is about Karma which hasn’t reached its pre-programmed Expiry Date, but which we can Shed now that we know Karma is Dead.
  • 9 Asteroid Requiem is about Respect for Death, and dwarf planet Thereus was the fellow who Enjoyed Wrestling with Bears and bringing them home with him, still Snarling, but whom we interpret as a Profound Teacher.
  • 10 It’s probably a good idea to Avoid Thetaing while Bummed Out, as we Manifest more of What We’re Feeling, more than we Manifest What We’re Asking For.

And that’s only part of the Story. One interprets a Golden Rectangle by interpreting the Oppositions between the corners, here Uranus (Soul ) Opposite (Arguing With) Atropos-Zhulong (Recognition and Acceptance of 5G), and Moon (Instinct ) Opposite Requiem-Thereus (Respect for Ego Death as a Teacher and Coach ). Of course, Arguing With is only the Linear Either/Or interpretation of the Opposition; the Higher interpretation is closer to a Philosophical Discussion where each member is devoted to Understanding the Other’s point of view, without interrupting to inject their own.

So we can review the past week to see if and how Our Soul Felt Open to Recognizing and Accepting 5G, plus if and how Our Instincts seemed to Corroborate – or not – that it’s Wise to Respect Ego Death as a Profound Teacher and Coach.

And the Yin Gate Rabbit Hole is Deeper yet!

When two planets are one Sign apart, give or take a few Degrees, the Angle they make is an Unx,11 one twelfth of the Zodiac, the Twelfth Harmonic. The twelfth Major Arcana of the Tarot, which is our Guide12 for interpreting astrological Angles, is the Hanged Man, who hangs not from his neck or his fingernails, but from his heels, so he can see the World from a different Perspective. The Twelfth Harmonic is the Pattern-Breaker. Any Yin Gate includes four Unx Angles, facilitating our bringing into Consciousness (which is how we Zero Out our Karma and replace Fate with Choice) any Self-Sabotaging Patterns we may have around the Relationship between the the two planets in the Unx.

Bringing a Karmic Pattern into Consciousness is the First Step in Changing the Pattern, and an Unx is like the Get-Out-of-(Karmic)-Jail-Free card in Monopoly. By Noticing the Changes that the Unxes in the Station or other charts suggest, and comparing that to our Experience, we’re more likely to be able to make the Changes Permanent, and with less Effort and Resistance.

  • 11 The word “Unx” literally means one twelfth of something.

The Makemake Station chart includes Unxes between Moon and Chiron, Chiron and Uranus, Makemake and Requiem-Thereus, and Makemake and Atropos-Zhulong. Meaning…

  • Any untoward Patterns we have between our Instincts and our Optimism/Pessimism are up for Revision (Moon Unx Chiron). I’ve noticed that over the past week I’ve been less likely to let my level of Optimism or Pessimism Dominate my Identity. It was a lot more automatic for me to recognize them as my Feelings rather than my Identity. Anything like that evolve for you?
  • Any unproductive Patterns we have between our Soul and our Optimism/Pessimism are up for Revision (Uranus Unx Chiron). My gift of Coal discouraged me for a day or two, but the sense that someone on the Other Side of the Veil was looking after me was Strong, and the material that I picked up to read had a Strong Impact. It was like a Treasure Hunt, with a series of clues from “random” places leading me out of Darkness. Gay Hendricks’s discussion of Einstein Time and how we eliminate Time Pressures by Owning that We Make Our Own Time, in his The Big Leap, was particularly Inspiring.
  • Any Self-Sabotaging Patterns we have in the Relationship between our Manifestation and our Respect for Ego Death as a Teacher and Coach are up for Revision (Makemake Unx Requiem-Thereus). It’s not like I suddenly Realized, “Oh, this is an Ego Death, Yipee!” But the Effect was the same. Any Experience like this for you?
  • Any untoward Patterns we have between our Manifestation and our Recognition and Acceptance of 5G 5D are up for Revision (Makemake Unx Atropos-Zhulong). I can see that my Attachment to Receiving from the Outside, rather than from Integrating my Identity into the Flow, was the primary Block that resulted in my Lump of Coal. This was one of the Diamonds in the Lump. So you see any sign of anything like this in your own prior week?

Outside the Yin Gate, there were three other Unxes in the Makemake-Station chart and corresponding Opportunities to Drop Karma relatively easily: Untoward Karmic Patterns in the Dance between our Instincts and our Thoughts (Moon Unx Mercury), Unhelpful and Negative Thoughts (de facto Prayers) about Global Climate Change (Mercury Unx Pholus-Quaoar), and Dysfunctional Patterns around Health, Longevity, and Learning (dwarf planet Varuna Unx Requiem-Thereus). We don’t spend much time on medical astrology in this blog, though we give a lot of Strong hints about How to Heal. And one such hint that Varuna Unx Requiem-Thereus suggests, is that we Regard any disturbance in the Healthy Functioning of our Body as Information about Changes that would Behoove us to make, rather than Symptoms to be Removed ASAP.
