Manifesting in 3D and 5D

January 28, 2019

Manifesting in 5D is all about Cooperation and Collaboration and Receiving.  In 3D it’s more about Effort and Persistence and “Winning.”  Here’s an example…

We’ve spoken of the Sidhe, the True “Fairies” of Irish folklore ( already, as I was introduced to them in a Fairy Study Circle created by Michael Polarski, of Fairy and Human Relations Congress Fame – which we’ve also spoken of (see  So I jumped at the chance when Jeremy Berg, a major Sidhe collaborator…

…came to a nearby town to present a workshop.  I was a little surprised at the time by how quickly I Responded, since the town was far enough away that I would normally have had to work fairly hard to convince myself to make the trip.

In a completely unconnected process, the week before Jeremy’s workshop, one of my clients asked me to attend an all-day meeting being held the day before the workshop.  My client’s meeting was to occur in another town only a few miles from the workshop, and they offered to provide lodging before and after the meeting.

Tremendous stroke of luck, as it meant that I didn’t have to get up before dawn to travel to either!  As my client was making these arrangements, they suggested I bring my wife and have a “second honeymoon.”  Well, unbeknownst to my client, it turned out that the meeting was happening in the same hotel that our wedding reception had been held in years before!  Another remarkable coincidence – or remarkable Intuition on the part of my client.

So, we went to the meeting and the workshop, and assisting Jeremy in the workshop, unbeknownst to me when I signed up, was a friend, remarkable person, and fabulous Irish Harpist, Peter Berry (  Well, Peter, with his Harp and his incredible Bardic Genius for Story, was the officiant who married us!

Not knowing these remarkable “coincidences,” Jeremy sketched out the Sidhe way of relating to their Reality, which sounded a lot like what we might Call 5D Manifesting, where we’re in Cooperation and Collaboration with the Energies and Forces around us.  That’s one of the fundamental purposes for this blog, hoping to help us understand the Forces swirling around us at any given time, so we can more Easily Cooperate and Collaborate.

I don’t normally get this personal in this blog, but the Story is too “coincidental” to resist telling.  Back in 2012, when the World As We Know It was Ending, we spoke a lot about how a New Energy Manifests at the Beginning of a Cycle between two planets, when a faster planet passes a slower one, and the slower (more Powerful) planet Initiates the faster one, or provides Shaktipat so that the faster planet can serve to Implement the Program of the slower one.

After the Initiation – when the New Energy is Prominent, the New Energy moves underground, as the Masters of the Old Obsolete Energy work to save their Investments by Forcing the Old Energy to appear to still be Working.  If we understand these Cycles, and know where we are in which Cycles, we can ignore the Old-Energy-serving headlines, we can “no longer lend our Strength to that which we wish to be Free From” (as Jewel puts it), and put our Efforts into helping the New Energy take hold.

The New Energy comes into its own when the faster planet is three Signs ahead of (“Waxing Square to”) the slower planet.  In 2012 Uranus Waxed Square to Pluto, finally bringing the Energy of the 1960s (when Pluto Initiated Uranus) out into the mainstream.  We Intuit the nature of a Cycle first by the nature of the planets involved, then by the Sabian Symbol of the Degree in which the Initiation occurred, and third by the Birth chart of the Initiation.

One meaning for Pluto is Transformation, or Trance Re-Formation, and another is Compulsion.  The interpretation we use for Uranus is the Individual Soul.  So the 150-year-long Uranus-Pluto Cycle is about a Compulsion to Transform our Lives so that our Ego Identifies more with our Soul or Mission.  You’ll notice that we talk about that quite a bit, especially now that Uranus is Edging into Taurus (Soul Merging with Flesh), which it does again in about six weeks.

The Sabian Symbol for the Pluto-Uranus Initiation was “A Ouija Board” – Opening up to the Mysterious.  The chart of the Initiation is quite remarkable (

So I was thinking last week about how I should be giving examples of the Waxing Square stage of Cycles, where the New Energy is coming out of the Closet, and see if we can Relate that to the Initiation, which we more often write about.  So this evening I looked to see which Cycles were at the Waxing Square, that we could write about, and lo, Mars was Waxing Square to Saturn just last week, on 21 January.

So, when was the Initiation, and what did we write about it?  I’m not trying to make this a test or testament about these methods, as I didn’t invent them – blame Dane Rudhyar for that – because, after having seen these methods work over the last half-century, I know that if I don’t understand, it’s because there’s New Information coming into my Consciousness, and it’d Behoove me to Pay Attention!

We Interpret Saturn as “The Most Important Thing” or the First Priority, and Mars as Action.  So the Mars-Saturn Cycle would be about how well we Prioritize our Actions, and whether they Further our Goals.  We have the admitted Bias that we Believe our Goals (at least while Uranus is as Lit Up as it has been) should be devoted to Opening our Ego to Adapt to Knowing and Surrendering to our Soul.

So if we go back to 2 April 2018 to find the Saturn-Mars Initiation, we find this (…

If we were examining Projects we’re beginning now (this Rebirth, for example), and hence using larger Sensitivities, we’d see that the Saturn-Mars Initiation is also Merged with the Quaoar and Pholus Stations.

“This means that The Most Important Thing (Saturn) is to Act (Mars) to Be Responsive to our Survival Instincts, and by extension to our Hidden Genius.  The Saturn-Mars Initiation occurs on 2 April (9am PDT) at 9 Capricorn, ‘An Angel carrying a harp.’  This begins a two-year Cycle where this Angel will facilitate our Actions when they Align with Being Responsive to our Survival and that of our Unique Genius.”

“An Angel carrying a harp!”  And of course, the stated Reason that the Sidhe are Approaching our Dimension now is because they sense that we’re about to Commit Cultural and Environmental Suicide, and they’d like to help us Choose to Avoid such a “Fate,” partly because they Live in a Parallel Dimension on the same Planet, and our Suicide will impact them as well.  Continuing with our April quote…

“So ‘you who philosophize Disgrace and criticize all Fears, take the rag away from your face, cuz now ain’t the Time for your Tears,’ as Bobby D put it.  God/Goddess is on our side after all.  It’s been a tough week, but the prognosis is good.

“You also got cheated out of a readable chart of the Healing Abuse Full Moon (see penultimate post) with its Decisions-about-Abuse-and-Privilege Paradox School, in the heavy lines…

The light lines show that the impending Saturn-Mars Initiation T-Squares the Full Moon, but Trine-Bridges the Decisions-about-Abuse-and-Privilege central axis of the Yin Gate.  Which is to say that if we Act to Be Responsive to our Survival Instincts, and by extension to our Hidden Genius, it will Heal our Abuse Histories Paradoxically. 

“Which is good, because it’s going to be a lot easier to Act-to-Be-Responsive-to-our-Survival-Instincts than it would be to Act-to-Heal-our-Abuse-Histories, for the reasons we explained in the penultimate Healing Abuse Full Moon post.  Penultimate means the post before the previous one.  It usually means next-to-the-last, but in this case, same diff, as the last post is the one before this one.”

We didn’t discuss, at least in that post, the Yin Gate with its emphasis on the Orcus-Nessus Opposition as the Primary Paradox governing the Cycle.  Orcus symbolizes the Oaths, Promises, and Commitments that are Forgotten and become Obsolete Habits, aka Karma, and Nessus symbolizes Abuse and it’s flip side, Privilege.  One very common sort of Paradox is the Healing Crisis, where an Affliction gets worse after a Healing before it gets better, and may continue to get worse if we Distrust the Medicine, because our Afflictions are continuing Mirrors for our Attitudes.

Here in the USofA we’re in the role of the Battered Woman, where our Oaths to Support Nation and Authority, and to curry favor from Wealth, are being tested by the fact that Authority and Wealth have been Abusing their Privilege and in the process Abusing Us – and we’re Noticing!  The two diagonals of the Yin Gate (the blue Rectangle) are the Journey from Karma to Mission, including the “fact” that our Karma hides the tools we need to Reach our Mission (the Nodal Axis), and Noticing that we need to Trust our Instincts about Ending Obsolete TimeLines (Sun-Mercury Opposite Moon-Eurydike-Atropos).

My own Obsolete TimeLine that’s being Ended is my Programmed Resistance to Accepting the HardCopy Reality of the Subtle Realms and Other Dimensions, where the Energies we need to Cooperate and Collaborate and Conspire with are Swirling, in and out of our own Dimension.  Even though I’m Passionate about Reanimating the World and All of its Beings, Sentient and Otherwise (if there is such a thing as an Other-than-Sentient Entity), how much do I Allow it to interpenetrate my Life, Moment-to-Moment?

Earlier in, we point out that the Saturn-Mars Initiation is also Merged with (Conjoins) the Belief-Responsibility-Survival (Vesta-Pholus-Quaoar) Stellium, telling us that in order to Act to Support the Most Important Thing, Respond to our Survival Instincts, and Allow the Angel’s Harp to Enchant us into Collaboration and Cooperation with the Energies Swirling around us, we need to Allow our Beliefs to Shift.

I have not been Working to Shift my Beliefs; I’ve been Reading and Learning and Watching them Shift on their own. If we look at the second chart in, we see that the Belief-Responsibility-Survival-Action Challenge (the red triangle or T-Square) is Self-Resolving (the blue cat’s cradle across from it the Diamond Star created by Varuna and Pallas), and that the Belief-Responsibility-Survival-Action Challenge itself is actually between our Ability to Manifest (Makemake) and our Victimhood or Attitudinal Adeptness (Chiron).

Now, while all that well describes the Roots of the Cycle, we want to Recognize that it’s Evolving.  If we look at the chart of the Waxing Square itself, which is almost identical to the Sappho-Station (Self-Love) and Grand Octile (Epiphanies) Total-Lunar-Eclipse (Erasing our Karma and Enhancing our Vitality) charts in the Self-Judgment and Self-Love series (the previous posts), we see that our Understanding of the Most Important Actions for us to take (the Mars-Saturn T-Square) is being Transmogrified (Bee-Zed) by our New Commitment to Self-Sovereignty (Hylonome) and our Learning that we overcome our “Fate” by simply Choosing an Alternative (asteroid Moira).

All of which leads us to

Yang Feminine I

December 13, 2017

A reader has asked us to review the possible astrological motives behind the current, rather amazing, example of a Tipping Point, where people are starting in some cases to Pay Attention and even Respond when women are assaulted – of which Alabama’s Choice might be an example.  This is a Big Question, and it will take me a long while to give it the Attention it deserves, but I’ve uncovered a few clues so far, so I’ll start what will undoubtedly end up being a looong series…

My first guess would be the Uranus-Pluto Cycle that was Initiated in 1965, because it’s one of the bigger (ie, longer) Cycles that’s begun in “our” era.  Pluto is about major Changes of Cultural Winds (equating to Jung’s “Universal” Unconscious, which we’re demoting to encompass not the Universe or even the Galaxy, but “only” our Solar System).  We could go on at length about Pluto’s role as Guardian of our known Solar System, until its demotion – Sedna plays that role now.  Pluto Protected Human Consciousness from having to deal with Reality, and played the role of a movie projector, projecting the Dominant Paradigm onto the Hologram we mistake for Hardcopy Reality.

It was the Waxing Square of the Uranus-Pluto Cycle – when the Cycle’s Energy emerges from gestation and becomes “Permanent,” or at least Pervasive – that ushered us through the whole 2012 Transformation.  The word Transformation or TranceFormation – Formation of a (New) Trance, a new movie in the projector – is in my humble opinion the best single keyword to characterize Pluto.  The second-best keyword is “Mandatory” – it’s usually futile to Resist Pluto’s Transformations, though they can be adapted within Limits.  So to me the Uranus-Pluto Cycle Increases the degree to which the Soul Self insists on its right to partner with the Ego, as its Supervisor.

I don’t regard Slavery as a natural unfolding of the Soul Self, except of course as a Heuristic or Learning Exercise.  So any new Uranus-Pluto Cycle is going to make it more difficult to keep enslaving half the People.  Also, because Emotion is more often a carrier of Intuition than Intellect, and because Women for one reason or another are likely to have more dexterity with Emotion than men, Women tend to be more Intuitive, at least for now.  That is, they have better access to Information that is usually hidden from the Intellect.  Hence they are likely to be more Conscious.

So it’s not like Women became Conscious starting in 1965.  There have been untold Uranus-Pluto Cycles prior to this one.  But 1965 would be expected to see a Transformation of Consciousness of our Soul Self, and it wouldn’t be surprising to see such a Transformation led by Women.  And of course we did see just that; there was huge surge in “Feminism” or Respect for the Sovereignty and Leadership of Women, in the 1960s.  Sensitive people would have begun Feeling the 1965 Uranus-Pluto Initiation several years prior to the Exact Conjunction, so we don’t expect a sudden Transition.

The current Uranus-Pluto Cycle began at 18 of Virgo, “A Ouija Board” – in other words, forget Logic and Proportion and Pay Attention to the Red Queen.  Gracie’s White Rabbit was released by Jefferson Airplane in 1967, and was certainly a very apt anthem for the Times (Zeitgeist is another good keyword for Pluto).  She wrote it for her previous band in 1965-66.  Close your eyes and let the Ouija Board guide your fingers – Intuition.  We could go into the Uranus-Pluto Initiation chart at length – it’s Fascinating – and I hope to find time to do just that.

But let’s shift our Attention to the Present for a minute, as that’s where the Tipping Point seems to have occurred (not that there won’t be a lashback or two).  Where is the Uranus-Pluto Cycle now?  They’re 107 Degrees apart.  Just beyond a Biseptile.  The Septile series or Seventh Harmonic is about Timing.  Isn’t that a Coincidence.  Of course it’s not an exact Biseptile.  So what else do we have?

Let’s look at 5 October 2017, the day the New York Times published their expose about Mr. Weinstein.  That was certainly a significant moment, and in hindsight (at least until someone more prominent is impeached) an excellent candidate for the Tipping Point itself.  Anything relevant going on then (I haven’t looked at Mr. Weinstein’s chart yet, because we want to focus on the impact on the Planet, not on him)?

Well, a new Venus-Mars Cycle was Initiated on 5 October.  When we’re talking about sexual and social intercourse, Venus-Mars is certainly where we’d look first.  We looked at Uranus-Pluto first because the Venus-Mars Cycle is only about 18 months or so, and we wanted to look at a longer Cycle.  So, where was the Venus-Mars Initiation?  Duh, 20 Virgo!  Only two Degrees from the 1965 Uranus-Pluto Initiation, the environs of which will remain a “hot spot” on the Zodiac till we start the next Uranus-Pluto Cycle in 2150. 

Virgo 20 is “A caravan of cars headed to the West Coast.”  Well, that was certainly happening in 1965 and thereabouts, with flowers in their hair.  How do we relate it to Mr. Weinstein and the Tipping Point for assault on Women?  Elsie read these Symbols in 1925 (in San Diego), so a caravan of cars would not have been a common occurrence yet.  But on long trips cars may have been likely to travel in caravans, as auto services would have been scarce.  It wasn’t until twenty years later, after World War II, that people flooded to Southern California, after seeing what a paradise it was while they were stationed on the edge of the Pacific Front.  So these people (or cars) were harbingers.

Is it a coincidence that the West Coast is burning up as we move through this Tipping Point about Respect for Women?  Collapse of an Olde Order – Death by Fire – would be an appropriate interpretation.  If you follow the Sun, the West Coast is as far as you can go without a boat; darkness follows.  The Venus-Mars Cycle is really about how our Inner Female and Inner Male are getting along with each other; the sexual stuff is just a Mirror.  So we have the Spirit (Fire) of an Olde Order descending into Darkness, and a caravan coming to Celebrate a whole new level of Integration, to witness the Heiros Gammos that’s underway.  Heiros Gammos is certainly an excellent Initiation into 5D Reality.

The only major Angle that the Venus-Mars Initiation made was a Square (Challenge) to Asbolus – which symbolizes Intuition.

Anything else happening on 5 October?  Yes, another Initiation, of Hopi by Haumea – Rebirth of Respect for All Things.  I’m not sure we need to even say more about that.  But for the record, it occurred at 25 Libra, “The sight of an autumn leaf brings to a pilgrim the sudden revelation of the mystery of life and death.”  Suggesting that this is no ordinary Rebirth, but an Enlightenment.  This Initiation Opposes Uranus-Eris (Revelation of the Soul’s Truth) and is Squared by Nemesis (Ego Death). 

Bingo.  We could go on, and as time allows we will.  We could sleuth out the other 99 Monkeys.  But we should remember that any chart speaks with many voices, most of which Harmonize.  For instance, on 5 October OR10 (Intrusion of Memories into Consciousness) and Nessus (Abuse and Privilege) were only two Degrees apart.  Their Initiation occurred a while back, and they’ve been Dancing ever since; it will be interesting to see what manifested into “Real” Life on or about their Initiation date.

There are a number of other Initiations in the neighborhood of 5 October – Pholus-Lilith (Taking Full Responsibility for Self-Sovereignty!), Quaoar-Lilith (Self-Sovereignty as Survival), Saturn-Lilith (Self-Sovereignty as The Most Important Thing), Ixion-Lilith (Honoring the Sovereignty of our Hidden Genius), all near the Galactic Center, as well as mutual Unions between Varuna (the Life Force), Aletheia (Truth), Ceres (Sustainability), and Mnemosyne (Memory) on the Cusp of Leo (Self-Trust).  These suggest that Transition to the Yang Feminine is critical to our Survival, which is not very surprising at all.
