Attending to the Field

February 27, 2023

The Moon went Out of Bounds over the Northern Hemisphere a few hours ago.1 Folks are more susceptible to Panic when the Moon is Out of Bounds. Last year, Wall Street (“DJIA”) often fell a thousand or so points when the Moon went OOB N as it just did. This time though, last week while the Moon was In Bounds, the DJIA fell a thousand points. That was more Pessimism than Panic. That being the case, will traders do a FOMO Panic (“Fear Of Missing Out”) this week and push it back up?

These kinds of shifts reflect the Emotional Reactions of traders. Changes in the Economic Milieu are more basic and usually have more Pull than the Emotional Reactions. From what I read, mild Bearishness presides, interest rate Expectations are rising as are CD rates (which just hit 5% for the first time this Cycle), but the next FRB Meeting (when interest rates change) isn’t till the March Equinox. Nucular War is in the back of people’s minds. So I doubt that anyone’s thinking FOMO, which raises the odds of it from Tiny to Who Knows!

We’re currently under the Spell of dwarf planet Altjira (the Field which Allows Life to Arise), the Impact of which is Exponentially Magnified (Stationary and Out of Bounds) here.2 If you aren’t Conscious of this Field, PIAVA to Open your Eyes to it. Even if you can’t See this Field, Offer it a Prayer that it continues to Hold Fast, for your own Survival at least, and the Renewed Thriving of your Home Planet if it occurs to you that these two may be Connected. Thankfully the Challenge is Self-Resolving, but the Great Nature God Pan will be Chatting with your Soul today.3

Go ahead, take a Risk and read the purple today. It’s good Practice for Learning to Tolerate your Confusion when the bars of your Birdcage are Open and you’re Starting to Expand your Consciousness.

This early Gemini to early Leo Pattern for Moon OOB N has been pretty consistent, so our natal planets in that Zone have been getting a workout, and will continue to for more than a year yet. If you have T-Squares Focused in this Zone, keep an eye on that Moon, as it may be providing Intense Multidimensional Information about their Challenges, as it has been for mine. I’m Learning Experientially that the Chakras and Internal Organs and Thoughts and Emotions and Life Circumstances and Dreams and Expectations Really Do make a Coherent Whole, not just in Theory. Not that I understand much of it yet, but I’m beginning to see where the Doors are that need to be Opened.

By Holding Steady through the Shattering, We Ascend), adjacent to the Great Star Rigel in Orion (Teaching Perfect Attunement to the New Energies). Well, yes, I suppose a Nucular War would be an appropriate Shattering of Western Civilization’s Compulsion to Pick Things Apart and never Put Them Back Together again because this Field is Invisible to It.

Rather than just watching Artesian Debate or Argue with this August Team, why don’t you Butt In and make sure they’re Collaborating to Manifest the Best Possible New Karma. Karma is just Habits, and Habits aren’t Negative till you use them without Considering whether they Apply well to the Current Situation.

We didn’t talk about this Important Rebirth, or Newly Initiated Cycle featured in the 2/20 New Moon chart and thus potentially prominent over the next several weeks…

In general, a New Cycle is Hot before its Initiation, and then goes Underground for the first quarter of the Cycle. For a 4-year Cycle like this one, that’s usually about a year, though Retrograde periods can shift that generalization quite a bit. In this case, the “Waxing Square” (first quarter) occurs on 2 April 2024, a bit more than a year hence. This is about our most Persistent Self-Sabotages, the kind that has Major Benefits for us, like for instance Helping us Avoid the Emotions that we’d rather Die than Feel. Yet they Sabotage our Health, or our Relationships, or our Survival. With this kind of Karma, we’re Split.

Not usually to the extent of the “Multiple Personalities” that the Psychologists and Robert Louis Stevenson wrote about, but still parts of ourself that may actually never meet each other or even cross paths. The Chocolate-Craver sits on the roof, watching the sidewalk for That Emotion – we don’t even know Whom, it’s on the other side of the Veil of the Unconscious. But when That Emotion strolls up the street, maybe humming a tune we didn’t even know was tied to That Forbidden Emotion, quick as a Bunny the Chocolate-Craver slides down the Chimney, hops on our back, and reaches our Arm out toward the Velvet Truffles.

We didn’t even Notice the Shift in our Assemblage Point, as our Other Ego slid in so deftly that Buffy didn’t even look up from the book she was reading. Fortunately, I’m beyond this point with my own Sugar Addiction. My Addict and my Health have met, and they’re Actively Negotiating how much Deprivation the Addict needs to endure for Health to prevail. It helped a lot that Remover of Obstacles Ganesh (asteroid Ganesa) camped out on one of my worst natal Challenges (T-Square) last week.

Part of the “Fact” that Nothing Changes Till We Accept It Completely Exactly As It Is, is that every nasty Self-Sabotage has a Positive Purpose. The Necessity may be Obsolete, but the Pattern isn’t. In the Jungian Perspective, the UnConscious Guides us toward our Mission and our Joy. As with any Interaction with the Unconscious, the results from PIAVAing More Information are usually More Useful than the results from Analyzing.

The Classic example comes from Holistic Health. From that Perspective, a Symptom is a Loving Message from the Underwhere attempting to tell Consciousness that something needs Rebalancing. If we follow Allopathetic Medicine and its Strategy to Eliminate Symptoms, we’re basically telling the Unconscious, to our Detriment, “Quit Bothering me! I Don’t Want your Help!” That attitude is all too common where we’re Outer-Directed, evaluating our Worthiness by measuring our Performance relative to some Cultural Value that isn’t actually Ours. Kinda like the way our Programmers Pushed Away our own Needs in favor of Theirs, “For Our Own Good,” of course.

Of course our Programmers need the same Compassion that our Symptoms Ask For. When we Accept Accountability for our Life, we Realize that Our Soul (or the Simulator Bot in the Lightworker’s Lounge) Chose our Programmers carefully so they’d set up Dilemmas that would Brightly Illuminate the Karma we came into this Lifetime to Heal. Think for a moment about the Most Difficult Problems in your Life, the ones you’ve never managed to Resolve. What portion of your total Life Up Until Now have you spent Thinking about, Reviewing, Feeling about, Resenting, Being Jealous about, Wishing it was Otherwise, Resisting, and generally how much Attention you’ve Squandered on that Issue?

That Attention wasn’t Wasted. It’s made you the Expert on that Issue. As Dissatisfied you Feel about it, Other People probably seek your Advice on it! In a Multidimensional and Unitary Reality like the one we Live in, Like it or Not, the Linear Mind is far too Limited to Solve any Problem, simply because it’s far too Limited to Define any Real Problem. Sure, you can come up with a 2D Solution to some 2D slice of the Problem, but what about the other (∞-2) Dimensions, let alone the Unity that’s always Larger than the Sum of its Parts? But thanks to your Obsession, your 2D Mind has looked at more 2D Slices, and Explored more nD Emotions, Instincts, and Intuitions about the Multidimensional and Unitary Issue than most others have.

Look for a moment at the Debates and Arguments and Judgments you’ve Overheard today, including the Debates that the Angels and Devils on your Shoulders have dwelled upon.1 Do any Themes Emerge?

Of course the World is Debating or at least Recounting the Anniversary “Celebration” of a year’s worth of Destruction and Deprivation that the Patriarchy’s Violent 20th-Century Colonial Brutality and Cruelty has unleashed upon Ukraine. Energy Follows Attention. Has this Attention Triggered Emotion in us, or have we become Hardened against it? If we had Attended Deeply to any of the Debates we Heard today, what might we have Felt? Do you Welcome that Emotion as Reflection of your Values? Or as an Introduction to any Element of your Programming?

1 Veritas (Truth of the Mind) Exact Station 24 February 2023 (PST 1:25 am, GMT 9:25 am, IST 2:55 pm, AEDT Qld 7:25 pm), in 8 Cancer (Acceptance of All without Judgment). Also on the 24th, asteroid Samadhi (Enlightenment) moved back into Leo to Clean Up any Residual Self-Indulgence, while Tantalus (Insatiable Desire) moved into Aquarius to help us Define the Social Needs that Bedevil us through their Difficulty.

Wavelite is a Fluoride of Aluminum Phosphate with Water embedded in the Crystal Structure. Like asteroid Hopi, it Promotes Discernment of Truth without Judgment, even in folks without the natural proclivity. It makes Radial Mountain-Shaped Clusters of Needle-shaped Crystals like the ones in the lower right, till the slopes of a Mountain are broken, and further Erosion creates Crater-Shaped Crystal Clusters like the one just left of center. The morphological similarity between the Crater-Crystal in the left center, and the Analytical meaning of the Mineral, is pure Coincidence.

In the previous post we mentioned “What do we do when we’re Surrounded by Death? We turn our Hand over and Focus on the Inevitable Rebirth.” The New Moon featured two Stelliums of 6 planets and 3, and one Conjunction of 2 planets. These combinations Initiate 20-some new Cycles, each of which are Excellent Rebirths to Focus upon. Some examples…

5 PiscesDeep Mystical Awareness Sheltered from Ego by No Need for Certainty

What can we do with this that will help Ourself and the Planet move into Ascension? Well…

We know that we’ll be working on Letting Go of our Judgments for the next many years (Hopi-Haumea). Any Expectations, let alone Judgments, will Lock us out of 5D. We could start on that today! How often do we say “I’m not one of those people who …?” or “At least I’m …!” Judgments make such fabulous pedestals for propping an Ego upon.

So we may want to PIAVA that we get really good at Ego Death. The Chandra Symbol tells us that this will be Tricky not just from an Ego Perspective, but from a Karmic Perspective. We may want to study the Chandra Symbol for our South Node, since that’s the most likely Nursing Home for our I’d Rather Die than Be That! Emotions.

Which very Emotions are the most likely Candidates to Arise in the upcoming Panacea-Gonggong and Saturn-Gonggong Cycles! Is not Getting Stuck on them The Most Important Thing about Intrusive Memories? Probably not quite, since that could easily put our Drive Wheel over close to the Narrow Shoulder of Denial, and having our I’d-Rather-Die-than Emotions Buried in the Unconscious just leaves them Running our Life below the level of our Awareness.

So Acknowledging them is probably More Important, then Holding Tight to your Magic Wand (so you don’t get Lost) while you Embrace the Feeling as Deeply as you Can for a few minutes, and then Letting Them Go. They’ll be back, so Acknowledge, Embrace, Let Go becomes our Mantra. Like a Muscle, each Repetition makes the next one Easier. The last Chandra Symbol tells us to use Certainty as an Red Flag that Reminds us to Let Go Again.

The Panacea-Damocles Cycle looks like a Winner. Know Thyself is a cardinal prerequisite for Enlightenment, and Nothing Changes Till We Accept It Fully Exactly As It Is. But if Accepting It involves Fear or Judgment or Shame or Guilt, we also need to Accept that, and PIAVA otherwise. There’s a clever but subtle trick we can use on these. Instead of “I Accept my Shame about Fearing Accountability,” we might say, “Up Until Now I Felt Shame about Fearing Accountability.”

You can even Repeat that, each time Feeling a little less Shame. It might be a very Gentle way to Let that Karma fade. And of course the ultimate method of Accepting the Negative, Tapping. Even though I Feel Shame about Fearing Accountability, I Deeply and Completely Love and Accept Myself… Or, getting Radical, Even though Up Until Now I Felt Shame about Fearing Accountability, I Deeply and Completely Love and Accept Myself… Tapping works on the Energy Level – you’re really enlisting Spirit, as you Let your Energy Meridians Know that your Conscious Mind Knows what they’ve Known all along.

When Mind, Body, Emotion, and Spirit are all on the same page, you can Manifest Anything You Want. When Manifestation is Halting, you can use that to track down the Laggard. When I Think about Being Accountable, do any Yes Buts come up just under the radar? When I Feel what Being Accountable will feel like, is it Exciting? Is my Body Hesitant when I Think and Feel about Being Accountable? Any Twitches or Aches? Where?

When I Ask Ganesh to Remove All Obstacles to my Being Accountable, am I Smiling, or Grimacing? We can actually buy a machine to measure our Coherence, the degree to which our various Personae are Collaborating or Competing – We can’t Think our way into Coherence, we have to Feel our way into it.

Here’s another approach… Marie Manucheri has announced that Suzanne Giesmann will host a free Shift Network webinar on How to Develop a Mediumship Mindset on 2 March 2023. To attend Live or receive a recording of the event, sign up at

Own It, then Let It Go

February 20, 2023

Well, I know one of us went back to the Lightworker’s Lounge to plan their next Adventure, Isaac George. By the time Isaac introduced me to the Global Shift toward Ascension, in the last century, he’d already been working in Sedona for a couple of years, Channeling Arcturians. Is everybody else still Embodied after the Gauntlet we’ve just been through? Though I received a couple of Profound Healings, it was Rough, and I’m still a little “shell-shocked.”

The 19-20 February 2023 New Moon1 is in 2 Pisces, and the Chandra Symbol is Intense (Lonsdale p.373)…

“They can go either way. If they hold their form… they can… persist in doing what is convenient, comfortable, customary, predictable, safe… a reprieve from the pervasive plunging action that otherwise takes them by storm. If they let go into the shape-shifting currents, they never know what will happen, where they’ll end up, who they’ll be… The magnetic suction action to become the underworld prowler… is so intense that it often feels to be the only possible path… Whenever they do take on the… reality of their more elemental instincts, they are purely raw experience, nothing but. They cannot get on top of it at all… they must be right there in it every split second… they are urgently summoned to take responsibility for whatever might arise, even if they have no idea where it will go.”

1 PST 11:05 pm 19th, GMT 7:05 am 20th, IST 12:35 pm 20th, AEDT Qld 5:05 pm 20th, in 2 Pisces, Turning into a Werewolf. In the quote, I’ve changed “he” to “they.” Lonsdale often personifies the Symbols in the third-person, which is great, as it allows us to read a natal planet without assuming that planet has taken over our Identity completely. But this is a New Moon, meaning we’ll all be Living it for the next two weeks or more. If we have a natal planet in or close to 2 Pisces, that part of our Persona will likely be drawn into the “storm” as an “I.” But unless it’s our Sun or Moon or Mars in 2 Pisces, we’re unlikely to Grow Fur and Lose Control to the Energy – we’re more likely to read about “them” in the minia.

The part about being “Urgently Summoned to Take Responsibility for Whatever Might Arise” is in the Degree, but it’s also an Integral part of this New Moon,2 and thus, an Integral part of the coming fortnight and month. Responsibility, though, is not Blame. Blame looks backward to Assign Guilt. Responsibility – the Ability to Respond – looks forward to Change Outcomes. This is especially Important here because much of what’s going on will Not Be Present Moment,3 and our Task is not to Indulge the Stories around it, but to Take a Few Minutes to Feel Them Deeply, and then Let Them Go.

2 The New Moon is Merged with (Conjoins) Saturn (The Most Important Thing) and Damocles (Fear of Accountability). It’s Challenged by (T-Square to) an ongoing Argument (Opposition) between Fear (Sedna) and Trust (Eurydike). The T-Square is not Self-Resolving, but it is Enhanced by a Grand Trine (Dumb-Luck Grace) with Rebirth (Haumea Conjunct Hopi OOB) and Our Unlimited Potential, Amplified (Chaos OOB).
Haumea-Hopi OOB is also the Focus of a second T-Square over the Debate (Opposition) between Letting Go of Karma (Karma OOB-Pluto-Tantalus – see note 3 below) and Ego Death (Cyllarus), which also perfectly Mirrors the 2-Pisces Symbol quoted above. This second, Rebirth T-Square is also not Self-Resolving but Enhanced by the same Grand Trine, emphasizing the Synergy.
3 Sun-Moon-Saturn-Damocles are also Merged with Gonggong (Intrusive Memories) and Panacea (Healing). In addition, this New Moon Stellium on the Pisces Cusp is Unx (Pattern-Breaking) to another Stellium on the Aquarius Cusp, made up of Karma Out of Bounds (Exaggerated Karma), Pluto (Compulsion), and Tantalus (Wanting It so Bad that You Can Taste It).

Letting Them Go is especially Important because We Have Changed, and more so than we Realize. As Venus moves into Aries,4 we’re about to Discover that our Values are now Different than they were before the mid-February Gauntlet. Crossing the Aries Cusp is always a Rebirth.

None of the three Challenges in the New Moon chart are Self-Resolving, but all three are Enhanced by Dumb-Luck Grace in such a way that they Complement one another. This means that we may find ourself “Standing Still for” or Tolerating some Discomfort while we wait for the Complementary Energies to patch the holes in the bottom of the boat. If we get scared by the rising Water and try to Rescue ourself too soon, we could lose the Grace and Sabotage the Intricate Dance between the Challenges.

4 19-20 February, PST 11:55 pm 19th, GMT 7:55 am 20th, IST 1:35 pm 20th, AEDT Qld 5:55 pm 20th. Venus has its own T-Square here, Challenged by Disputes (Opposition) between Cultural Boundaries (Ixion) and Our Unlimited Potential (Chaos). Also Not Self-Resolving, the Venus T-Square is also Enhanced, by a Grand Trine with Eurydike and Cyllarus. This Grand Trine ties together all three non-Self-Resolving T-Squares, meaning that they all work together synergistically.

Another Complication is that the Stelliums and other Angles sit on the Cusps, so that the Energies don’t Harmonize as well as they otherwise would.

For instance, Being Compelled to Let Go of Long-Frustrating Karma (asteroid Karma in early Aquarius Conjunct Pluto-Tantalus in late Capricorn) – our Compulsions and Frustrations are Practical (Capricorn), but the Karma to be Let Go Of is Embedded in Complex Social Design (Aquarius), like Turds in Lace. We’ll never be able to Clean the Lace, so what do we do, dye the Lace brown? We’ll be Tempted to Trash the whole mess and start over with Fresh Turds or Fresh Lace, or maybe just Hardware Cloth this time, that we can Clean with a garden hose. We’ll Rue what we Lose in Design, but at the same time, we have to Realize that the old Design wasn’t Functional.

The New Moon Stellium is also Cuspal. The Priority to Get Accountable (Saturn-Damocles) is an Idealistic Social Endeavor (Aquarius), while the New Moon Energy, the Healing (Panacea), and the Intrusive Memories (Gonggong) are all Emotional (Pisces). The Karmic Flushbacks, the Healing, and the Currency are all very Messy, with lots of Crossed Wires and Conflicting Goals (Pisces), while the Accountability and the Priority are more Rigidly Structured (Fixed Air), like trying to Organize Turds in a Filing Cabinet. These Mismatches are Purposive – the Old Structures are Comfortable, we’re Accustomed to them, we Like them. But they aren’t Working.

What do we do when we’re Surrounded by Death? We turn our Hand over and Focus on the Inevitable Rebirth. We just have to Let the Old Die to make Space for the New, and as much as we can, we have to Let Go of Our Expectations about what the Future should Look Like. We can just PIAVA Delight and Ease and Abundance (Having Enough to Share) and Loving Connection and a Gentle Transition, and Let Everything Else Go.

There are just three major categories of Crystals built from six-sided rings (like the Grand Sextile, the Queen of Grace in astrology) of Silicate units, and they’re among the most Healing of the Crystals. We’ve already seen some of the Beryls (with Beryllium keeping things Light enough for the Angels to keep Flying) – like Emerald, Aquamarine, Heliodor, Morganite – and some of the Tourmalines (with Boron keeping things Light) – like Indicolite, Elbaite, Dravite, Schorl. The third category uses Magnesium to keep the Angels aloft. While Magnesium is 2½ times as heavy as Beryllium, it’s only half as heavy as Titanium. In Geology it’s known as Cordierite, and in Gemology Iolite

Iolite is a Magnesium Alumino-Cyclosilicate (the “Cyclo-” identifies its rings of Silicate units), with Iron sometimes substituting for the Magnesium. It’s pleochroic, meaning that it Changes Color when viewed from different Angles, sometimes Blue, sometimes more Violet, sometimes Brown. The reddish tints in the picture may be from those Iron substitutions. In the Body, Magnesium is everywhere. It keeps your Heart ticking, your Bones solid, your Cells healthy, your Brain functioning, your Muscles and Nerves twitching, and helps regulate Blood Sugar, Blood Pressure, Sleep, and a steady supply of those Turds for our Lace and Filing Cabinets. Take the Iron out of a red blood cell and replace it with Magnesium, tweak a few of the edges, and you have Chlorophyll, the Root Source of virtually all Food and Oxygen on Earth.

Iolite’s unique Skill is to draw Lavender and Violet Energies down from the Crown Chakra to the Root. It can help keep us Grounded if our Shape starts Shifting faster than we can keep track of. When using an Iolite Crystal for Healing Physical Magnesium Imbalance in the Body, Marquist & Frasl (p.79) tell us to include a Phosphate such as Lazulite (Magnesium Phosphate — note that LazuRite, as in Lapis Lazuli, is a different Mineral)…

Or, if you’re Working on Body-Mind-Energy Coordination Energies and leaning toward the Energy side, and you want to amplify the Purple Rays, you can use Purpurite, a Manganese Phosphate…

Mass Confusion 1

February 10, 2023

Imagine if we were dropped into a culture where only Amharic was spoken and written. The label on a food package might look like this – የንጉሥ ቋንቋ – and when you pick it up to see if it might look edible, someone asks about “Ye-Negus QwanQwa.” That’s kind of the way Life on Earth might Feel for the next week. I was awakened from a sound sleep this morning by a buzzer, followed by a robotic-sounding voice saying “You have zero hours.” Suddenly wide awake, my first thought was “Shitodear, I better get to work!”

Our language serves to Differentiate our Reality into what we Observe. Consciousness increases not by Discovery, but by Differentiation. We hear the Bird in the Tree, but we don’t see it till it moves. When it does, it’s suddenly no longer part of the Tree. Having grown up as an “Amateur Naturalist,” I’m used to recognizing Plants by the shape of their Leaves, but I’m often reminded that other people don’t see Plants that way. They just see Leaves, Undifferentiated. Maybe they’re aware of the different shades of Green. Have you noticed all the little Blips out of the corner of your Eye, or the Clear Sense that someone just walked behind you? The World here is Alive with Spirits, much more than usual.

When other people Differentiate their World Differently, it’s more Difficult to Communicate. Fifty years later I can’t help but remember how tickled I was when Louis Malle, in his Epic on India, pronounced that word Di-fic-ul-ty instead of the Dif-i-cul-ty I’m used to. When planets Merge or Conjoin, the Concepts that we Associate with them become less Differentiated. Lets use as an example the asteroids Narcissus and Hopi. Narcissus is about our Self-Image, and Hopi about our Respect for All Things. When those two Concepts Intermingle, as they are as we write, Self-Doubt is a distinct possibility as we Notice how Arrogant we can be.

Of course, Confusion is still the First Stage of Growth in Consciousness, so it’s a Good Thing to Notice the places where we’re Arrogant, so we can amp up our Respect for Those Whom We Were Judging while Lowering our own Pedestal a bit. But we want to Avoid reducing our own Self-Respect in the process, so it’s Important to Congratulate ourself for Noticing rather than Criticize or Judge or Shame ourself. Of course any Comeuppance to our Self-Image will Regress us to our 2-year-old Self and introduce all manner of additional complications.

So a Poor Sweetheart or two are probably in order, something like You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling (Regret)(Shame)(Self-Judgment)(Rejected), aren’t you. Followed of course by Changing the Subject. I know, we try not to Reinforce the Negative, but Poor-Sweethearting and Tapping are “Exceptions that Prove the Rule,” because what both of these techniques are doing is Acknowledging the Truth in order to bring your Thoughts and Emotions and Energy Meridians into Coherence. Nothing ever Changes until it’s Accepted Exactly As It Is. Think 4th Step, if you’ve been there or need to.

Now let’s stretch our example by bringing a third planet into the Merger Dance, say, dwarf planet Sedna, meaning Transmuting Fear into Power. The Fear hits first, unless we’ve already Trained ourself to automatically Breath or do Kegels when Fear starts to arise. If at age 2 our natal Narcissus was a hard nut to crack, our Programmers may have felt that they had to get Serious, with not just Shame, but more explicit Punishment. Now our Inner 2-year old (who’s still in there, like it or not) isn’t just Feeling (Regret)(Shame)(Self-Judgment)(Rejected), but also (Fear).

Now suppose we meet an old friend on the street, and want to catch up with one another. Well, if Self-Image and Respect for All Things and Converting Fear to Power are all Lit Up at the time, one or the both of us are likely to slip on Masks to Self-Protect our Vulnerable front-and-center 2-year-olds. Not much catching up gets done when the Weather is the main topic. We could lose a friend that way.1 Or, if we’re both in Recovery (from anything), this chance meeting could Deepen into much greater Intimacy, as our Respective 2-year-olds get to know one another, mediated by our Present-Moment adults, if the adults are still Present.

1 If we’re practicing our Yintegrity (where we do what we damn well Feel like doing, when we Feel like doing it, but to Survive in a Yangtegrity Culture we minimize our Commitments, Renegotiate when we can, and make Amends when we can’t and the Relationship is Worth Keeping), the first thing we’d do is Evaluate the friendship to see if it is Worth Keeping. We might test to see if they’re on the road to Ascension too, for instance, without going deep enough that they’re inspired to call the Psych Ward before you can Back Out.

By now you’ve probably guessed that in fact, Narcissus (Self-Image) and Hopi (Respect for All Things) and Sedna (Converting Fear to Power) are all Lit Up this week, and so are The Remover of Obstacles (Ganesa), the Chinese Red Dragon of Enlightenment (Zhulong), Boundaries (Pallas), and The Truth of the Heart (Aletheia). And Respect for All Things, The Remover of Obstacles, and The Truth of the Heart are all Amplified (Out of Bounds).

I expect the Confusion to be multiplicative or Exponential rather than Additive – that would make it 21 times as Confusing as usual, without including the Out of Boundses (Outs of Bound?). Hereabouts we’ve already had a Coyote try to check in to the local Huper hospital, and rumors of some kinda Freakout that Emptied a Supermarket and then half the same hospital. And this place specializes in Confusion on an everyday basis.

You should be okay if all of your natal planets are between 15 and 18 Degrees of their Signs – every other Degree is within 3 of at least one of the seven Amplifications (Stations). The Stations are basically one-a-day, but they will all Merge together because of their Timing and Proximity on the Zodiac. Here’s the Exact Schedule…

Amplification of Self-Image Issues

(Narcissus Stationary) till 8-9 February 2023 (PST 9:34 pm 8th, GMT 5:34 am 9th, IST 11:04 am 9th, AEDT Qld 3:34 pm 9th) in 6 Scorpio, The Edge between Self-Importance and Selflessness. Amazing. Another example as if Lonsdale’s Degree Readings were Chosen especially for this day. Remember that asteroid Narcissus is in everyone’s chart, and not everyone is a Narcissist, so we should interpret Narcissus as Self-Image or the like. We all need enough Narcissism to get to Unconditional Self-Love. The one primary Challenge is Fully Self-Resolving, and is an Exaggeration of Ego Death (T-Square, Finger of the Goddess, and Grand Trine to Requiem Out of Bounds). Narcissus itself is Merged With Respect for All Things Times Four (Conjunct Hopi Out of Bounds and Stationary).

Exaggeration of Converting Fear to Power

(Sedna Stationary) till 10 February 2023 (PST 12:41 am, GMT 8:41 am, IST 2:11 pm, AEDT Qld 6:41 pm) in 29 Taurus, Full Self-Expression without Ego-Attachment. There is a Self-Resolving Challenge to Owning Our Shame (T-Square and Finger to Phaedra/Shame and Vesta/Unconscious Limitations), and a Challenge to Be Aware that we are Purging our Karma (naked Square between Haumea/Rebirth and Karma-Mercury-Pluto/Compulsion to Become Conscious of our Karma). Our typical Reaction to Discomfort is to try to Eliminate the Symptoms. If we do that here, we’ll just Freeze ourself where we are, instead of Progressing toward Ascension. When something Untoward Happens “to” us, Ask yourself “Did I Contribute to this?” and be Open to any Answer you Receive that isn’t Blaming. Karma is about Habits, not Doing Something Wrong! We Change a Habit by Noticing it, Congratulating ourself for Noticing so we’re in Positive Energy about it, and making a Commitment to Respond Differently next time.

Sedna itself is Merged With Fate and Choice (Conjunct Moira). We are Victims of our Fate as long as our Karmic Patterns are Unconscious. By bringing them into Consciousness, we convert Fate to Choice. This is a Multiplier of the Haumea-Karma et al Square of the previous paragraph. You know that the Universe is Serious – that is, Pay Attention! – when it repeats otherwise Independent Indicators like this.

A Bright Light Illuminates the Path to Enlightenment

(Zhulong Stationary) till 11 February 2023 (PST 1:27 am, GMT 9:27 am, IST 2:57 pm, AEDT Qld 7:27 pm) in 11 Scorpio, Staying Open To and Present With Our Demons until they Surrender. This is the Ultimate Gift from the Universe – the chart is a Grand Unx, with a dozen planets spaced more or less equally around the Zodiac, yielding three Self-Resolving Grand Crosses (each with 4 planets 3 Signs apart), four Dumb-Luck Blessings Grand Trines (each with 3 planets 4 Signs apart), two Couldn’t Be Better Grand Sextiles (each with 6 planets 2 Signs apart), and twelve Pattern-Breaking Unxes (12 planets 1 Sign apart). Zhulong itself is Merged with Transmutation of Held Emotions (Conjunct Ka’epaoka’awela and the South Node) – a third Independent Indicator signifying Letting Go of Karma.

Also, after 11 February, Our Thoughts Become More Socially Constructive (Mercury moves into Aquarius, PST 3:22 am, GMT 11:22 am, IST 4:52 pm, AEDT Qld 9:22 pm) until 2 March. And after 11-12 February, Our Healing Becomes More Empathetic (Panacea moves into Pisces, PST 2:23 pm 11th, GMT 10:23 pm 11th, IST 3:53 am 12th, AEDT Qld 8:23 am 12th) until 24 April.

The Truth of Our Heart Become Remarkably Super Clear To Us

(Aletheia Out of Bounds and Stationary) till 12-13 February 2023 (PST 7:30 pm 12th, GMT 3:30 am 13th, IST 9:00 am 13th, AEDT Qld 1:30 pm 13th) in 22 Gemini, The Lower Self Expects the Worst, but then the Higher Self Leaps Forth at the Last Minute to Take Advantage of the Unexpected Opportunities. 22 Gemini is home to two Fixed Stars. Bellatrix, the Star on Orion’s left shoulder, means Shadow Work. Capella, the brightest Star in the Constellation Auriga the Chariot, is the Equine Goddess of Speed and Freedom, and is about Balancing Freedom and Commitment. After the Tarot, we associate the Chariot with the 7th Harmonic, which is about Timing, Stillness, and Readiness to Respond. There is one Self-Resolving Challenge, to Trust our Instincts and Authentic Self (T-Square and Finger to Moon in mid-Scorpio).

There are also two other Challenges (Naked Squares), one to Emphasize our Devotion to the Web of Life (Aletheia itself Square to Venus-Arachne, respectively Our Values and Grandmother Spider Who Weaves the Web of Life), and the other (Square) between two interesting clusters either of which could Self-Sabotage our Heart’s Truth. One is about our Surrender to Codependence in the Misguided Belief that it Will Help Us Manifest What Has Always Been Just Out of Our Reach (Hylonome/Codependence Conjunct Tantalus/Insatiable Cravings), and the other Guilt and Denial Inhibiting our Ability to Focus (Nemesis/Guilt, Eris/Denial, and Neptune/Confusion).

It’s Easy to see how either of these could Limit our Manifestation, but harder to fathom what it means that they Challenge Each Other. But there are Clues. Neptune implies Material Confusion but Spiritual Clarity, and Spiritual Clarity would simply have us PIAVA that our Guilt and Denial Be Lovingly, Gently, Rapidly, and Completely Resolved. And the secret backdoor to Tantalus is to Shift our Orientation so that we Value not the Object of our Desire, since we’d just Want something else if we were Granted that, but that we Value the Richness of Desire Itself, as the Essence of Life. In other words, we Focus on Enjoying the Journey, not Anticipating the Destination.

Also after 12-13 February, We Become More Casual about Trust, as it no longer seems so much of a Life-and-Death Issue (Out of Bounds Eurydike/Accentuated Trust) leaves Scorpio and enters Sagittarius (PST 10:35 pm 12th, GMT 6:35 am 13th, IST 12:05 pm 13th, AEDT Qld 4:35 pm 13th). On 23 May, though, Eurydike returns to Scorpio to finish up some of this Work Deepening our Trust.

The Funeral for Karma

(Pluto Initiates a New Cycle with Out of Bounds asteroid Karma) occurs on 12-13 February 2023 (PST 9:59 am 12th, GMT 5:59 pm 12th, IST 11:29 pm 12th, AEDT Qld 3:59 am 13th), in 30 Capricorn, Aiming for the Stars and Never Letting Go. In a lot of ways Karma has been Dead since the End of Time as We Know It, in 2012. Without Linear Time, Karma’s old definition as Cause and Effect is moot. Effect is supposed to Always Follow Cause, but that Makes No Sense if Nonlinear Time now has Loops and Wrinkles and Other Dimensions. Karma as Inertia no longer Makes Sense either, because Inertia is Undefined if Time is not Linear and One-Directional.

And Karma is Really Expectation, because we know that by Noticing a Karmic Pattern and tracing it back to its Early “Tells,” we can Short-Circuit it before it accrues enough Belief to Manifest into Hard Copy, and Choose Alternatives. So Karma was never Present-Moment, and if All There Is Is Now, then nothing Exists outside the Present Moment, and Karma is Revealed as a Fiction manufactured by the Brahmins in the early Patriarchy to keep the Rabble Intimidated. Like in the US Constitution, written to Protect the Interests of Slave-Holding Landowners, Tell the same Lie (of Equality) often Enough, and they’ll Believe you. The Energy of the New Cycle takes over completely at the Waxing Square in early 2024. We have only till then to Practice Breaking our Habit of Grasping for the Comfort of the Known, our Karma, when it Goes Missing. We have to Exchange that Fear of the Unknown for the Excitement of the About-to-Be-Born. Remembering to Breathe will Help.

Karma slips back In Bounds on 8 March 2023 (PST 4:56 am, GMT 12:56 pm, IST 6:26 pm, AEDT Qld 10:56 pm). That should make it Easier to move into the His-Story Books where it Belongs. We may no longer even need to Follow it.

Bringing Out the Big Guns to Support the Final Elimination of Our Shame Karma

(Ganesa Out of Bounds and Stationary) till 14 February 2023 (PST 3:45 am, GMT 11:45 am, IST 5:15 pm, AEDT Qld 9:45 pm) in 29 Gemini, Embrace of the Underwhere to Bring Light, home of the Fixed Star Polaris, A Nurturing Mission, and adjacent to Betelgeuse in Orion, Achievement and The Hollowness of Being Outer-Directed. The Remover of Obstacles Ganesh is Merged with two other Out of Bounds Heavyweights, Our Enhanced Intuition (Asbolus OOB), and Our Amplified Unlimited Potential (Chaos OOB). All by itself, this Trio is More Than Enough to Levitate Us, should we have the Courage to PIAVA them. These three Challenge (Naked Square) our Shame (Phaedra) Head On. When your Shame Arises, Remember that it’s doing so to bid you Adieu, so yes, Feel It, Deeply, for Half a Minute, just long enough so you can Recognize it instantly whenever you might Meet it again, and Reject it Immediately.

In addition to Delegating Shame to these 3 Godfathers, there are two other Challenges, one to Accountability for Healing that’s Enhanced but not Self-Resolving (T-Square and Grand Trine to Damocles, Saturn, Sun, and Panacea), and one to Rebirth that’s Fully Self-Resolving (T-Square, Finger, and Grand Trine to Haumea). The two Grand Trines are the same one, so the Challenges are mutually Complentary.

Moon Out of Bounds over the Southern Hemisphere

On 14 February (PST 2:04 am, GMT 10:04 am, IST 3:34 pm, AEDT Qld 8:04 pm), the Moon goes Out of Bounds South (Folks tend to Panic More when the Moon is OOB), until 18-19 February (PST 8:22 am 18th, GMT 4:22 pm 18th, IST 9:52 pm 18th, AEDT Qld 2:22 am 19th).

Also on 14-15 February, Our Fate’s Grip on our Attention Loosens (Moira moves into Gemini PST 9:34 am 14th, GMT 5:34 pm 14th, IST 11:04 pm 14th, AEDT Qld 3:34 am 15th), until the end of May. Asteroid Karma also moves into Aquarius on 14-15 February (PST 5:09 pm 14th, GMT 1:09 am 15th, IST 6:39 am 15th, AEDT Qld 11:09 am 15th), till 3 May. A good Opportunity to Practice Letting Go of Our Social Karma, especially any Codependence that’s Becoming Unnecessary.

Respect for All Things Becomes a New Highly-Celebrated Anthem for Ascension

(Hopi Out of Bounds and Stationary) till 15-16 February (PST 2:12 pm 15th, GMT 10:12 pm 14th, IST 3:42 am 16th, AEDT Qld 8:12 am 16th) and beyond, in 4 Scorpio, Apprehension of Doom. Interesting Degree Symbol. Let’s Explore furthur…

“The shadow vigil is not something we make up. It is not just our gloominess and negativity. We are being shown the places others miss, and we are asked to stay tuned to these and to be aware, alert, and on the spot for whatever might arise. As we get into this stance it may be too much to bear, but what we are being shown is vital to grasp, crucial to becoming a conduit for, even if we might become greatly darkened in the bargain” (Lonsdale p.251).

Hmmm. I’ve been ignoring most of the news lately, though keeping up with the major threads. Sounds like an Inventory of Judgments would be in order. And this Symbol suggests that some Judgments may be Appropriate from the Perspective of being “aware, alert, and on the spot” if not from the Perspective of Seeking Detachment. Have I natal planets at 4 Scorpio? No. In fact it Challenges (T-Squares) a Major Axis and Completes a natal T-Square there. So I have Work here, but I’m not sure if I need to Choose to Accept this Assignment – or it’s Opposite, which is always the first Alternative when Working with the Underwhere.

Stationary Out of Bounds Hopi is Merged with Rebirth and Self-Image (Haumea and Narcissus), suggesting that Self-Congratulation about Lack of Judgment could be a Ruse to cover Denial. Respect for All Things doesn’t imply Approval, as that would only mean Judgment about the Opposite of what’s Approved. It should imply Respectful Neutrality. There is one Fully Self-Resolving Challenge, to Prevaricating about Disrespect for Lawn Order (T-Square, Finger, and Grand Trine to Ixion/Rule-Breaking Merged with Pinocchio/Lying).

Soulful Full Moon

February 4, 2023

I’m still behind on paper, still working on the 19-22 January 2023 Moira-Uranus New Moon report, which is important because it’s Impact lasts till the 20 February New Moon. But in Real Life, when the clouds above my skylight parted last night, it became Glaringly Obvious that the 5-6 February Full Moon is upon us! So what’s it about?

First, it Dances with our Soul in quite a Challenging manner (non-Self-Resolving Uranus T-Square to the Full Moon Opposition). The Full Moon itself is at 17 Leo, Irrepresible Emergence of the Underworld. The Sun is at 17 Aquarius, Maintaining the Details of Tradition. Our Tradition is to treat the Underworld this way…

Uranus, though, sits at 90 Degrees from both of them, but at 16 Taurus, The Compulsive Truth of Love. It’s Squeezed between Star Menkar in 15 Taurus, The Repeatedly Erupting Need to Surrender, and 17 Taurus, Eruption of Unconscious Contents. Sounds like David Icke, post-Ayahuasca. If you’ve ever watched much television or studied much History, you know well how brutal and sadistic Hupers can be.

We may have Memories or Dreams or Visions that emulate television in their Brutality and Sadism. We may even have Chosen to Confront some of that when we were in the Lightworker’s Lounge Simulator. Whether from the Simulator or from any sort of Experience that we Identify as Personal, we may have Karma that approaches this. There is no Ego Identity in the Unconscious, it’s Impersonal. Some people consider it to have Three main Realms, the Universal, symbolized by Pluto, the Cultural (by Neptune), and the Individual (by Uranus).

Wait! If the Unconscious is full of Bogeypersons, how can we consider Uranus, the Individual Unconscious, to represent The Soul? You’re thinking of Freud’s Subconscious. That’s the Dungeon where all of our Demons are Chained Up (or were, till this Full Moon, I guess). Jung’s Unconscious is the Dragon’s Lair, where our Lost Treasures are cached – the ones that will make us Whole and take us to 5D – Protected by the Dragon. The costumes and makeup are better there.

The Subconscious and the Unconscious are actually the same place. The only difference is the Perspective of the Observing Ego. Is Thor’s Hammer the Sledge of Destruction? Or is it the Mjölnir – Lightning – of Epiphany and Enlightenment? There’s a pretty Clear and very Traditional Dichotomy at work here, isn’t there – the Famous Dichotomy between Good and Evil. Well, Dichotomies are what Dimensionality? Two? What do we know about 2D? That’s where the Mind Lives, isn’t it. Nature doesn’t Live there, Reality doesn’t Live there.

You aren’t old enough to remember the old Kodak Brownie camera from the 1950s. My first camera. They may have had color film for it, but who could afford that? When we could spare the cash to get a roll developed, we got 2×2 inch (5×5 cm) black and white snapshots. 2 inches, 2 colors (sorta – shades of grey actually), 2D. That’s where Good and Evil Lived, there in the Brownie, and on the couch – and in the 50s. Actually, developers would only develop Good. Evil snapshots got confiscated. You had to go to Polaroid to capture Evil, and that was still originally only Sepia and White. Color TV was still ten years away. You can make Color with 3 pigments, but mixing them together in different combinations and intensities will provide an almost Infinite number of additional Dimensions.

That helps, but to get to Nature or Reality you need to add many more Dimensions, starting with Linear Time. Video simulates Linear Time, and consumes Linear Time to watch, but it still doesn’t do 3D well, or approach all the variations and nuances of Nature or Reality, or even of Huper Culture and Artifacts. All of these considerations are about Separation, a 2D Concept. Language, the Currency of 2D, can describe, usually crudely, many characteristics of 3D and sometimes beyond, but it has precious few words for Unitary. So we have to admit that 2D is woefully Inadequate to capture the Paradoxical way Nature is Multidimensional and Unitary.

The Unconscious is also Multidimensional and Unitary. The Three Realms are marked off just for the convenience of astrologers and psychologists and their Minds. The Three are Irretrievably Interwoven and Entangled. The distinctions between the Realms are pretty Arbitrary. Think of it as a Gigantic Blob floating in Interdimensional Space, like Dark Matter or Dark Energy, obviously Occupying the same space we Live In. The outside of this Unconscious Blob is studded with Rings. Bilbo was trying to find one of them. When we stick a finger into one of the rings on the outside of the Unconscious, it sticks. That’s Karma.

Since the Unconscious is Invisible or Transparent, we can never know the Source of the Karma. All we can do is Notice and Identify (crudely, since it’s multidimensional, but that’s a start) the Pattern of Behaviour that it produces, and Act or Speak Differently, Hoping the Change will impact the Karma broadly – for instance, will Stopping Generational Abuse End the Karma itself, or just our own Ring of it? We don’t know, we just do the best we can, and Assume that we’ll simultaneously Chip Away at the larger Cultural Realm of the Blob. If it helps, we can Assume that the Karma was part of the Original Intelligence of the Universe, put there as a Heuristic or Teaching Device for us demented Hupers.

The Finger of the Goddess, consisting of two planets two Signs apart, with a third planet at their Far Midpoint, five Signs away, making an Acute Triangle or Wedge. Five Signs is called a Quincunx (Latin for “5/12ths”) and indicating Mystery, or Dimensionality higher than 2 or 3. In Nature there are no Contradictions – which are 2D and therefore in the Mind of the Observer – there are only Paradoxes where there appear to be Contradictions, and this is also true of Mystery, the Quincunx, and the Finger of the Goddess. The Finger combines the 5th Harmonic (Learning) with the 12th Harmonic (Pattern-Breaking). We can’t change a Problem using the same Thinking that postulated the Problem, so we have to Learn a New Way to Break the Problem.

The T-Square consists of two planets in Opposition or 6 Signs apart, with a third planet at their Midpoint, three Signs away, making a Right Triangle. Three Signs is one fourth of the Zodiac, hence it’s the 4th Harmonic, signifying Dominion. Western Culture understands only Domination, not Dominion, as the tale of Damocles illustrates. Damocles covets the Emperor’s Luxury, so he asks if he can sit in for a day and Enjoy the Domination. The Emperor says “Sure,” but hangs a Sword over the Throne by a single Horsehair to symbolize the Complexity of the Duties that he must perform to maintain his Dominion. Damocles is Terrified by the implications of Accountability, and Runs Away. The Moon, by the way, symbolizes Accountability.

So the T-Square signifies Mastery through Challenge or Mastery through Adeptitude, which Damocles could have Worked toward had he not Run Away. Now, if we add a Finger of the Goddess to the T-Square, with each of their “third planets” being the same planet, then the base of the T-Square makes a nest of Trines and Sextiles (both of which signify Grace) with the base of the Finger, and this Basket of Grace under the T-Square makes the T-Square Self-Resolving. If it’s hard for you to follow all the triangles, this is all mapped out graphically in the post at Bear with us, we’re making a Point.

If Damocles was in a Self-Resolving Challenge, and had not run, but tried Sitting with his Discomfort (in the sense of Sitting in Meditation), he would have had an Aha! Experience, understood the message, untied the Sword, handed it back to the Emperor, thanked him, and Lived Happily Ever After. In a Self-Resolving Challenge (T-Square plus Finger of the Goddess), the Distressing Patterns we Break by Sitting with the Challenge are Patterns that were ready to Let Go of us, Rings that were ready to Break Open at the slightest Tug, or even On Their Own. (Thanks to Boozilla for the loan of the Patient Bear.)

Earlier we mentioned a Configuration that Ego astrologers refer to as a Thor’s Hammer, as it’s Implications can be troublesome for the Ego. It’s two planets 90 Degrees apart with a third planet halfway between them at their Far Midpoint, 4½ Signs away. The Ego astrologers refer to the 4½-Sign Angle as a Sesqui-Square because what they see is a Challenge similar to a Square (Sesqui means 1½). In Ascension astrology, we see a Trioctile Angle there, because we regard the Octile, the 8th Harmonic (1/8th of the Zodiac or 45 Degrees), as a very legitimate Angle in its own right, meaning Adjustment or Justice.

We refer to the Configuration as a Mjölnir, or Trioctile Yod. That’s just Norwegian for Thor’s Hammer, but the Hammer has so much Destructive Baggage from Hollywood’s interpretations of it, that we needed a more neutral term that emphasized the Lightning aspect of Thor’s Hammer. Lightning, a legitimate meaning of the Hammer in Norse Lore, is just as Destructive, but it’s more Focused, and Illuminates the Situation. So we regard the Octile as meaning Insight, and the Mjölnir as signifying Epiphany. The Trioctile combines the 3rd Harmonic (Love with Wisdom) and the 8th (Adjustment), so Implies Bringing into Balance.

Now, if a T-Square (Challenge) and a Mjölnir (Rebalancing) point to the same planet, then the Challenge is Self-Resolving with a Caveat. We have to do our Work. The Patterns to be Broken will likely be Difficult, such as Rejecting Feelings that We’d Rather Die than Feel. The Angles made between the base of the Mjölnir and the base of the Square, rather than Trines and Sextiles as was the case with the Finger, are Octiles and Trioctiles – Justice and Rebalancing.

There may be Guilt involved with the planets in the Mjölnir, and we may need to Make Amends to bring the Guilt “to Justice.” Often the Amends will need to be make to Ourself, for Abandoning an Inner Child for most of our Life, for instance. Guilt is seldom “Deserved” – it’s usually someone else Blaming us to Protect their own Ego. If it was something “we” did “wrong,” Regret would be more appropriate than Guilt. We put “we” in quotes because if it’s Karmic, it wasn’t even “us” that were involved, “we” weren’t there! “Wrong” is in quotes because it’s a Judgment, a Duality, an Intellectualization, a Thought. We can be Tortured by Thoughts, but not Blamed for them.

We’ll talk about how the Full Moon Triggers Mjölnirs tomorrow.

For now there’s one more Important Issue we need to mention. Karma is By Definition Not Present Moment. It has roots in other Lifetimes. Even if they’re Parallel Lifetimes, they aren’t in Our (Our Ego’s) Present Moment. It’s Effortless to Bring Karma into the Present Moment – all we need to do is Repeat Self-Destructive Habits Mindlessly. Yes, we haven’t traced most of our Karma back to its first Pattern. The Present-Moment Re-Enactment of Karma often starts with one of those Feelings that We’d Rather Die Than Feel.

Each time we Feel that, our Reaction is to Repress it, often before we even Realize we’ve Felt it, because we’ve been Practicing Repression for so long that it’s Automatic. Often it was part of our Programming. We weren’t Allowed to Feel that because our Programmers couldn’t Stand It themselves. So when we begin to Notice a Karmic Pattern beginning to Repeat, we may be Noticing the second or third Pattern in a series. That doesn’t matter. Whatever stage we Notice, that’ll make it easier to trace back to earlier Patterns.

We may be able to get ahead of this process by PIAVAing to know What Came Before the last time this Karma was Triggered? Then we can Notice that Pattern when it reoccurs, to see if it’s part of the Chain of Events and Feelings that lead to Outcomes we don’t Want. If we can be Vigilant about this process, ultimately we can simply Refuse to Cooperate when the Triggers are pulled. Fear is often one of the Feelings that we’d rather Die than Feel. Not all Fear, but Fear of a certain Tone, Fear that Regresses us to Past Deaths or Past Experiences that “we” Experienced as Worse than Death.

Once we Interrupt the Chain of Events and Feelings that lead to Outcomes we don’t Want, it becomes Obvious that Karma is Just a Thought. Like the old Sticks and Stones May Break My Bones, but Thoughts Will Never Hurt Me till we let them lead us down a Train of Karma. From the Perspective of the Octile and Trioctile, every Event and Feeling is a Teacher, and the more Unpleasant it is, the more Important is the Lesson. Blaming the Teacher when we don’t Grok the Lesson helps no one.

Rhodonite (the red, a Manganese Inosilicate with Calcium, Iron, and Magnesium substituting for some of the Manganese; an Inosilicate is one with the Silicate units joined into long chains) and Galena (the silver-black, Lead Sulfate), which “blends the heart pink with the dark root Chakra colors [and] helps a person self-actualize as it increases awareness of dignity, self-respect, and self-regard [and] grounds all these essential awarenesses to a stable foundation. … It is a unique aid to insight as it strengthens the heart connection to the higher self, bridging the intelligence and learning ability of the heart tissue with the higher self while bypassing the brain” (Marquist & Frasl, pp.127-8).
