Here’s some fascinating history I didn’t know…

What the World Needs Now

Is (Self-)Love, Sweet (Self-)Love / That’s the only thing that there’s just too little of…

A reader writes:

You said, ‘If you know where your Natal planets are, and you have planets in any of these zones, that will show where you will have the greatest Power to change the Future.’  Where is my greatest power?  (Where are my planets?)

They were born in the early 1950s.  Saturn Squared Chiron repeatedly from 1945 to 1952 (Chiron as the Soul’s Messenger was busy giving Saturn as the Ego its post-war “marching orders”), Chiron Opposed Uranus from 1951 to 1956 (Chiron as the Messenger picking up a new Message from Uranus as the Soul), and Saturn Squared Uranus in 1951 and 1952 (Let’s make sure Soul and Ego are Aligned).  Between 1954 and 1956, Uranus Squared Neptune.  That was the Waning Square prior to the 1993 Conjunction that we discussed earlier.

Our reader has a Natal Grand Cross (a Grand Cross keeps a person very busy putting out one “fire” after another – they become a Master at multi-tasking) between  a Uranus-Chiron Opposition (Awareness of the apparent distinction between Yintegrity and Reframing – maybe a shred of lingering doubt about the practice of keeping thoughts positive) and a Jupiter-Saturn Opposition (possible chronic uncertainty about whether to extrovert or introvert, advance or retreat, expand or focus).   In general a Grand Cross keeps us too busy “putting out fires” to worry about the frustrations in each of its four T-Squares.

But in our reader’s chart the Moon is close to Saturn, making a more exact T-Square with Uranus and Chiron.  Still, our reader may not experience this as a T-Square per se (a T-Square meaning frustration because in this Lifetime their Soul’s objective isn’t to “get it right” but to explore all the angles) directly, but more as part of their Grand Cross (it’s “always something”!).  If they did experience it as a T-Square it would be about something like being frustrated by never seeming to be able to get Yintegrity and Reframing aligned just right to Manifest exactly what they Want.

As is typical of a T-Square, they’re likely to be much more of an expert at Manifesting through Reframing and Yintegrity than they give themselves credit for.

This Moon-Uranus-Chiron T-Square is lit up by the ongoing Uranus-Pluto Square at 8-12 of the Cardinal Signs and the repeated T-Squares made to it by Ceres, Vesta, Pallas, Jupiter, Lilith, Mars, and others in 2013 and early 2014.  We don’t get a break from the Uranus-Pluto Square until June-October 2014, when Uranus moves ahead.  Then in January 2015, as Uranus sets up for its final March Squaring of Pluto, the South Node crosses Uranus.  We’ll be very grateful then, for any work we’ve done in the interim to Shed our Masks.

Consequently, one of our reader’s roles in the evolution of the Planet at this time is to help other people Manifest through Yintegrity and Reframing.  Our reader expressed frustration with a few of their close friends who keep arguing with them – but these friends may not have much in 8-12 of the Cardinal Signs, so they may not be responsive to our reader’s efforts to help them Manifest through Yintegrity and Reframing, nor to our reader’s efforts to help them Shed their Masks.

The point is that our reader may not be feeling appreciated for one of their greatest talents, and this could triggers their own Self-Doubt about whether it’s even a skill, since it’s so subtle, and since they seldom seem (in their own eyes) to “get it right” anyway.  It’s a T-Square after all.  The Spiritual Purpose of having the T-Square light up, is to give our reader one more opportunity to drop their Self-Judgment and find appreciation for their Skills and Expertise – this is what the New Earth is all about: everyone finding appreciation for their own Skills and Expertise, so they can put these Skills to work without being intimidated by the bullies who are doing everything the can to maintain the status quo and worse, push the species and the Planet backwards.

There are many other people who need this help from our reader, people who might not want to argue about it – they may just be dumbfounded by it (while they think through the implications of a Reframe), or their Resistance might argue (you can always tell when it’s someone’s Resistance that’s arguing, because their arguments are ingenuine), or they might just be nonplussed (if it’s not a Teachable Moment for them).

Here’s the nature of our reader’s Skill that others need – both for our reader to help solve their distress, and to learn from our reader, either by watching and imitating our reader or by our reader’s instruction.  Since someone somewhere is adept at just about anything we can name, it follows that any ineptitude we suffer from is due to Self-Sabotage – either we’re trying to be someone we aren’t, or our Limiting Beliefs stop us from reorganizing our view of the World so that what we Want is as easy for us to get as it is for others.  Like cashflow for instance, to take a currently-relevant example – for some it’s effortless to the point of Avarice, for others its difficult to the point of desperation.

So with this Moon-Uranus-Chiron T-Square, when our reader Wants something, they probably consciously or unconsciously run through a process something like this…

  • First they ask themself whether it’s really in Yintegrity for them.  If it isn’t, they Reframe the Want.  My favorite example of this is the red convertible – maybe when they examine a Desire for that, it might turn out that what they really Want is for people to recognize who they are and give them respect.  The heuristic is to imagine how they’ll feel when driving the red convertible.
  • Second, they look to see what inhibits their Desire, and move to Both/And.  Maybe it’s shyness, or pragmatism, or simply more pressing Needs that keep them out of their red convertible.  So they look for a Win-Win Reframe.  Is their shyness Karmic?  Can they be more loving with their shy Self?  Do they overdo pragmatism?  What would happen if they loosened up a little?  What would they need to have or do in order to bring more Self-Respect into satisfying their more pressing Needs?
  • Third, they Focus their Intention, Change the Subject, and then follow the threads that present themselves.  They may notice that they’re out of Bananas and set off to the store to get some.  When they pull into the store parking lot, another shopper is just getting into a red convertible with a For Sale sign on it.  Because the seller needs the money, the price, though more than a bunch of Bananas, is far below what they’d expect to pay.  Excited, they go over to talk to the driver. But when they walk around the car, they see that there’s an obvious and serious rust problem on the other side of the car.

They’re deflated because they would NOT feel Self-Respect while driving a rusty red convertible!  They did everything right, and they still got shut down.  Discouraging!  It’s a T-Square, not a Trine – it’s not about getting it right, it’s about exploring the Edges.  And it’s Chiron – Miracles and Despair, and the many paths between them.  But any Square, T-Square, or Grand Cross is motivating – our reader will be out there practicing their Manifestation techniques again tomorrow, maybe not on a red convertible, but something else.  Even though the results are never perfect, they keep working at it.

And exactly that motivation and perseverance and willingness to explore all the angles is how they’ve become an expert on Manifestation through Yintegrity and Reframing.  They just may not recognize their expertise because it never works out perfectly.  But that process is exactly what they’re being called to Teach.  They go into the store to get their Bananas, and without thinking about it they start a casual conversation with a stranger in the produce section.

Turns out this stranger is trying to Manifest a better job.  Our reader instinctively asks them what it is about their current job that’s out of Yintegrity for them (in our reader’s own words, of course, without defining Yintegrity for the stranger).  Our reader asks the stranger what’s holding them back from making a change, and without even thinking about it suggests ways they might Reframe their fear of Change.  In our reader’s own words, they ask the stranger about the Focus of their Intention, and whether the stranger may be so Focused on the downsides that they don’t see the opportunities for upside when they arise.

This is what our reader does, it’s who they are.  And the World needs that, badly.  People are struggling with what they fear are the downsides of dropping their Masks, even though they’re highly motivated to do so.  If my story rings any bells at all for our reader, the World is asking them to walk around and be themself, talk to strangers, listen to their stories, ask them questions that lead them along a path that our reader might have taken if our reader was in their shoes.  Not to worry about responses; some will thank our reader, some won’t.  Others will overhear.  It’s the process that evolves the species, not the results.

Above all, our reader needs to let go of Perfection and Judgment, and just let themself Be themself.  It’s not about doing anything different or unusual – other then dropping Self-Judgment and reticence, and letting themselves just be who they really are.
