January 2020 III

November 17, 2019

Okay, now that we’ve examined the Uranus-Station context, and the previous Cycle (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2019/11/10/january-2020-ii/), we can look at the 12 January 2020 (9am PST) Saturn-Pluto chart.  The first thing to notice about this chart is that the Solar System is in danger of falling over.  There are six planets within three degrees, eight planets in Capricorn, and eleven planets within thirty degrees, all on the Capricorn (Just Fix It!) side of the Zodiac…

We usually start any interpretation by looking for T-Squares (the red triangle), because those almost always give us trouble.  And yes, this one says that a fundamental issue will be Trust (asteroid Eurydice).  But when there’s something we don’t see every day – or every year, or every decade – like those six planets within 2½ Degrees! – we have to Pay Attention!  A Stellium, which is a multiple Conjunction, like this means that we may not be able to tell the difference between the planets.

That can be Disorienting – imagine not being able to tell the Difference between east and north, or east and west, or up and down, or right and wrong.  It can make the World look entirely Different than it usually does to us.  So in the first half of January, in addition to “a Self-Resolving Challenge and Great Grace extended toward our Vitality” (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2019/11/07/january-2020-i/), ALL of these Energies may seem to be Merging…

  • The Essence of Who We Are (Sun).
  • Sustainability or Sustenance (dwarf planet Ceres).
  • The Most Important Thing (Saturn).
  • Compulsion and Trance Reformation (Pluto).
  • Thought and Communication (Mercury).
  • Self-Doubt and/or Self-Confidence (dwarf planet Chariklo).

You can begin to imagine what that might feel like…

  • Who Am I?
  • Who Are You?  Do I even Know You?
  • I Need to Get Out Of Here Fast, but All These Things Are Weighing Me Down!
  • I’m Sorry I Have to Say This, But…
  • This Is So Much Different than 2019!  Everything Has Changed!
  • I Can’t Do This but I Need to Do Something!  I’m Frozen!
  • This Feels Like an Acid Trip, but I Can Handle It.
  • I Haven’t Been in a Place Like This Since I Was a Teenager, but At Least I’ve Been Here Before!  How Did I Survive Then?

I’m sure you can go on and on Imagining Meldings like these.  There are fourteen different pairs of Energies to combine here, before we even get to the triads, foursomes, quintuplets, and the sextuplet.

When Crabs crawl out of their old shell for their own Molt, they no longer have any armor.  Their new shell is soft and they’re lunch for any hungry passerby…

You may even have an Evolutionary or “Past” Life Memory of this, so you have every right to be Freaked Out.  With Uranus so recently Stationary (Strong), any part of our Ego that isn’t Ready for Soul Descension (often called “Ascension”) will be Freaked Out.  The more we can See this Freakout as an Ego Death rather than a Death Death, the Easier it will be.

Returning to the T-Square, we see that its base – the source of our Fear of Trusting – is our fuzzy Intuition about the sorts of Futures that our new Superpowers will be Creating (dwarf planets Asbolus and Chaos) and the Truth about our Transcendence (asteroids Veritas and Bee-Zed) and what we will be Leaving Behind.  These will be Exciting Futures, and we can be Excited about them if we Remember what Fear plus Breathing equals.

We also notice the blue lines.  If the blue lines were on the other side of the chart, it would be a Self-Resolving Challenge (Diamond Star).  As it is, the chart is like the Crab about to Molt, with its legs still folded up inside itself.  While Trust in our Undefined and Uncertain Future isn’t quite Self-Resolving (it lacks the Finger of God that makes a Diamond Star), it’s still Permeated with Grace (the double Trine Bridges), and the two Energies that will help us unlock this Grace are Respect for All Things (asteroid Hopi) and a Strong urge to Action (Stationary Mars).

The chart spans exactly half of the Zodiac, from 26 Gemini to 23 Sagittarius.  If we had a name for the empty half of the Zodiac it might be Our Maturity, the time when we Learn to Share (Cancer), to Stand on our Own (Leo), Confront Adversity (Virgo), Meet Other (Libra), Explore the Edges of Relationship (Scorpio), and Return to Vulnerability (Sagittarius), in preparation for Building Something (Capricorn).  This is what will be missing in January 2020 – Socialization.

When Socialization is missing, no one knows the “Rules” and the result is Chaos.  To the Builder, Chaos means Unlimited Opportunity.  To the Autocrat and the Fundamentalist and other Victims of their own Fate, Chaos means Terror.  As our newly Rebirthed Soul Descends, how will be Play this one?  The Crux of Trust (the focus of the T-Square) here is 22 Pisces, “A prophet carrying tablets of the New Law is walking down the slopes of Mount Sinai.”

Here’s the New Law…

http://theweathermakers.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/Beleidsplan-stichting-The-Weather-Makers.pdf

Study it well.  There will be changes and extensions, but this is the basic program.  You’ll find more at https://www.ecosystemrestorationcamps.org/.

If Socialization is absent, we have to Ask, Where Is Waldo Ixion, the master of Sociopathy?  Ixion is also of course the master of Genius, and the only one rude enough to Change the World.  Genius sits in the last Degree of Sagittarius where he’s joined by Boundaries (asteroid Pallas), by Truth (asteroid Aletheia), and by the Ability to Respond to the Unforeseen (dwarf planet Pholus) – a Challenging Stellium in its own right.  Sociopathic Genius Responding Fully by setting Boundaries against Someone Else’s Truth?  Truthful Boundaries Responding in Whatever Way Necessary to contain Sociopathic Genius?  We know the Dimension but not the Direction.

And where do We Stand in this Drama?  Is this our own Genius Acting Out?  Are we Standing Against someone else’s Sociopathy?  Both?  Do we Believe ourself to be The One Standing in Truth?  Are we Guarding the Boundaries, or Storming the Barricades?  We’re talking about the Heart’s Truth (Aletheia), it has nothing to do with Facts (that’s asteroid Veritas).  You can only Embrace or Reject the Heart, you cannot Refute it.

Ultimately, if any of us are to get to 5D, we have to Fully Respond to our own Pathological Genius AND Fully Accept everyone else’s Pathological Genius, and put them together Collaboratively, Win-Win.  The Puzzle won’t fit together any other way, short of Violence.  And are we Making Lots of Room for Mother Nature’s Pathological Genius, in all Her Multifarity?  Humans aren’t the only Conscious Entities here, and contrary to our androcentrism, we may discover ourselves to be among the Least Conscious Entities on the Planet.

The Sabian Symbol for the 23-Capricorn Degree of the Pluto-Saturn Initiation may begin to make sense – “A soldier receiving two medals for bravery in combat.”  The soldier may not be in uniform, and the combat may not be organized.

This Ixionic Knot is Challenged (Squared) by Self-Sovereignty (Lilith) and Despair or Miracles (Chiron).  If Ixion is a master of Miracles, then No One tells him what to do.  If not, he could be horsecollared by Despair, either his own or that of his self-appointed jury.

There are two other major points of focus in the Ixion chart – Rebirth (dwarf planet Haumea) and Fear (dwarf planet Sedna).  Will we let our Fear paralyze us?  Or will we Embrace it and Engender a Whole New World?  The 12 January 2020 Ixion chart…

2019 Q4 and 2020 Q1 Stations

October 16, 2019

Ontario.

Now that we have a “week off” more or less, let’s look at the remainder of 2019 and the first quarter of 2020.  We’ll use several “shorthand” abbreviations or symbols…

  • Â.Mickie stands for asteroid Mickie
  • Ð.Goofy stands for dwarf planet Goofy
  • Š/ stands for Station, when a planet’s Energy is especially Strong
  • Î stands for Initiation of a New Cycle between two planets

Below we list only the Stations (plus one major Initiation), or the times when a planet’s Energy is Strongest and most Distinct or Identifiable.  When there are several planets Stationary at the same time, though, it will likely be hard to Distinguish the Separate Influence of each planet, because their Energies will be Merged.  When two planets are Stationary at the same time, it’s as if they’re Conjunct.

In general, we Experience the Energy of a Station before it happens, as the Energy Intensifies until it is “Complete” (the planet starts moving in the other Direction), and then it drops off rapidly.  In cases where we aren’t Neutral to the Energy, we may make Decisions about it, and those Decisions (Orcus) will carry the Energy over into the time following the Station, possibly even eventually Creating new Karma.

For instance, the Energy of asteroid Moira is about Fate and Choice – Fate in situations where our Karma is still Unconscious…

Someone else is doing something to me

and Choice in situations where we’ve brought the Karma into Consciousness…

Oh!  I’m really not Experiencing what they seem to be Doing, I’m Experiencing my own lifelong Habitual Reaction to it!  They don’t even know I’m here!

Once we’re Conscious, we can Choose to Respond Constructively, rather than Reacting from our Victimhood.

So if we’re Insulted or Angered by something someone Says or Does, and we don’t Realize that it’s our Button that’s been pushed, we might Decide that this person is not “on our side,” and make them (or worse, people like that) a Lifelong Enemy.  And if we stay in 3D (which is likely if we haven’t Cleared our Karma), we’re likely to continue the same Conflict into Other Lifetimes.  You can tie up all Deviations from Whirled Peas and all of World History in this simple wrapper, and there won’t be much left to Clean Up.

On the other hand, we might Feel Insulted or Angry, but if we Recognize that it’s our Feeling, we may Choose to Agree to Disagree, or even move to a different Meeting, but we won’t make it into a Capital Offense.

Rose Quartz.

There are a number of ways to guess how soon we’ll begin to Experience a Station before it’s Complete, but a useful rule of thumb is…

  • A week for the four outer planets, asteroid Bee-Zed, and the dwarf planets except dwarf planet Ceres (that is, everyone with orbits longer than ten years)
  • Several days for the three inner planets, the asteroids, and dwarf planet Ceres (orbits between one and ten years)
  • Since “Tropical” astrology (the kind we use) sees events from the Perspective of Earth, neither Earth nor Sun nor Moon are ever Stationary

We might also begin to Experience the Energy of the next Station as soon as the current Station is Complete.  Our General Sensitivity is obviously relevant.  And if a Station occurs on one of our natal planets, we’ll React more Strongly and probably sooner.

If we want an Astrological Rule rather than Empirical Guidance, the usual Sensitivity projects that the Impact begins when the Stationing planet is less than one Degree from its Exact Station.  However, some of the newer dwarf planets (such as Sedna) move less than one Degree in a year, which would mean they’re Always Stationary.  And yes, we can certainly interpret that to mean that Fear is Omnipresent, as was common Before the Current Era (ie, BCE or BC)!  If we’re in the Habit of Converting Fear to Power (with Kegels for instance), then this is a Powerful interpretation!

But using lengthy Stations can give us so much overlap that we’re never sure what’s happening.

Asteroids usually take about four days to move one Degree, but when they’re slowing down to Stop and Turn Around, they’ll be much slower.  For instance, rather than 23-26 October for the first Klotho Station, you might look at 11-26 October (the one-Degree range) instead, and Pay a lot more Attention if you have a natal planet near the Ides of Gemini.

Bottom Line, feel free to start my date ranges sooner.  But if you’re still Experiencing Strong Energy after the Station, in order to Avoid accumulating new Karma you want to look over the last several days to see if you’ve made any Decisions based on your Discomfort with the Energy of the Station.  If so, Own your Discomfort and Revert your Decisions.

Initiations are Conjunctions, and Conjunctions act like Stations in that we Experience the Energy increasing in Strength as the Exact Conjunction approaches, then it drops off rapidly, assuming we’ve Captured the available Learning to keep, and not the Energy.  Again, we want to Pay Attention to Discomfort before the Initiation, and Work on Ourself to Own and Revert if necessary after the Initiation.  What we Learn from any astroevent is ours to keep.  They’re all Teachers.

Initiations Differ from Conjunctions, however, in that they also Begin a new Cycle, and the Energy that’s Born at the Initiation – including your Reactions to and Learnings from the Initiation – will Endure on some level for the entire Cycle, whether the Cycle is Initiated by a New Moon (28 days) or by Saturn and Pluto (30-some years).

We’ve added a few words of preliminary interpretation, but of course the actual interpretation will flow from a chart drawn for the Station, which we don’t normally do till we’re getting close to the event.  The preliminary interpretation will probably hang True, but it may not be The Most Important interpretation.

The short interpretations below are Dimensions, not Directions. The Direction is up to us.  For instance, in the first few days of November Our Perspective on our Vitality may Improve or Decline.  If the latter, it’s Identifying Karma for us to Let Go Of.  If we Allow our Victimhood to Reinforce the Decline, we Lose.  If we Notice the Decline and Realize that we have the Power to Heal (Tapping, Poor-Sweethearting, PIAVAing, Plan-Executing, Invoking the Unseen Therapist, et al), we Win.

If Our Perspective on our Vitality Improves, Gratitude is Relevant.  You don’t want to use the Improvement to pad your Ego – it’s not your Ego that Heals, though it can certainly Catalyze Healing, and increasing Self-Love is always Valuable, but not for Cause.  If Self-Love depends on Cause, it will never become Unconditional.  Self-Love is the Natural Condition we Strive to Return to, and we can certainly Congratulate ourself for Work Well Done when we step in that Direction.  But it’s Grace that Heals, and to Welcome and Encourage Grace, lift out the “c” and drop in a “titud,” then give it plenty of Exercise.

We aren’t adding the Moons and Sign Changes to this list, because they have different orientations in Time, and they would just make the list overlong.  The above are what we regard as The Most Important astroevents of the next six months.  We’ll table the Moons and Sign Changes separately, and maybe add the Out-of-Bounds periods, since the Moon starts going Out-of-Bounds in March for the first time in a decade.  Then if we get time, we can combine the lists to make a complete calendar.

Still Chopping Cherry Trees 2

October 12, 2019

Meanwhile, Pluto (Compulsion and Transformation) and dwarf planet Chariklo (Self-Doubt/Confidence) are still Merged, and with them asteroid Hopi (Respect for All Things).  We are in Truth Unlimited Spiritual Beings, so when we Judge anything that we Believe to be Other, we actually Judge ourself.  And deep down, we Know it, we just don’t like to admit it because so many of us Define our Ego by what we’re trying to Convince ourself that we aren’t.  You know, Those People that supposedly Do or Believe all those Terrible things.

And to top it all off, this Pluto-Chariklo-Hopi (Don’t Pretend Like That Isn’t Your Issue – Even If It’s Mine Too We’re Just Mirrors For Each Other!) Challenges (T-Squares) the Eris (Revelation of Denial) Full Moon.  These aren’t Games (well, unless we’re Clever enough to Understand that, to the Soul, Ego Is just a Game) – we’re being told pretty Clearly by the Universe that we need to get to Neutrality before the Poo really hits the fan.

Three months from today Pluto Initiates Saturn.  Pluto is the Master Timekeeper, determining the Zeitgeist of the Planet.  Saturn means The Most Important Thing, so the beginning of a new 30- to 40-year Saturn-Pluto Cycle is a Big Deal.  Let’s go back and look at the last Century through the lens of Saturn-Pluto…

  • October 1914 – Pluto Initiated Saturn in 3 Cancer, “A man bundled in fur leads a shaggy Deer,” a 33-year Cycle.  Sounds like we were in for a Cold third-of-a-Century.  The Initiation was three months after the start of World War I.
  • August 1947 – Pluto Initiated Saturn in 14 Leo, “A huper Soul seeking opportunities for outward manifestation,” a 35-year Cycle.  Mop-up begins after World War II, and the Cold War starts.  By twenty years later the US economy (as measured by the S&P 500) was worth five times as much as it was in 1947.  While the Cycle wound down, the size of the US economy was reduced by 60%.
  • November 1982 – Pluto Initiated Saturn in 28 Libra, “A person becoming aware of spiritual forces surrounding and assisting them,” the Cycle spanning 38 years.  1982’s Jupiter Effect, an Alignment of all nine then-planets within a quarter of the Zodiac, presaged the Harmonic Convergence of 1987-92, with its End of the nine Hell Cycles of the Mayan Calendar, which began when Cortez landed in Mexico.

Eighteen years later the US economy (S&P 500) was worth seven times as much as it was in 1982.  Nine years after that, as the Cycle began to wind down, it was worth half as much.  During the following (ie, most recent) ten years the US government printed tonnes of new money and gave it to the already-wealthy.  Without that Grift, er, Gift, the economy would probably have continued to fall.

  • January 2020 – Pluto will Initiate Saturn in 23 Capricorn, “A soldier receiving two award for bravery in combat,” to begin a new 33-year Cycle.  Well, we can Hope that the awards are delivered for past combat, though considering the likelihood that Climate Change will create Wars, Famine, Pestilence, Conquest, or all four, that may be in vain.

In December 2020 the Digital Age will begin in earnest.  We would Expect a major crash in the US economy of about 70%, as the anomalies created by the Grift of the 1% are worked off.  It’s entirely Possible that Jubilee could grant some degree of economic Freedom to everyone, which could produce a flood of small-scale Creative Entrepreneurship developing the beginning of the Digital Age while effectively addressing Climate Change.

It wouldn’t hurt Visualize that, or something better.  Focus on the World You Want To Live In, not the World You think Everyone Should Live In.  Everyone Wants something slightly (or hugely) Different, and there’s no reason why all of those Worlds can’t occupy the same Time and even the same Space – except Our Desire That Others Have To Live By Our Rules.  There should be plenty of room for soldiers to win multiple combat awards – which could even be in online Digital War Games.  Or, after the previous inhabitants have been evacuated, they could enjoy Analog War Games on Islands while they sink beneath the Sea.  Atlantis the Sequel.

2020 Part 2

July 14, 2019

“2020 Part 1” is called Revelation Full Moon, ie, the previous post.

BTW, we’ve made corrections & additions to the post 2019 Q3 I (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2019/06/30/2019-q3/)

The Guardian today has taken a step beyond our discussion of the third Decades-Scale shift taking place in 2020, in an article by Paul Mason…

https://www.theguardian.com/books/2015/jul/17/postcapitalism-end-of-capitalism-begun

“…Almost unnoticed, in the niches and hollows of the market system, whole swaths of economic life are beginning to move to a different rhythm.  Parallel currencies, time banks, cooperatives and self-managed spaces have proliferated, barely noticed by the economics profession, and often as a direct result of the shattering of the old structures in the post-2008 crisis.

“You only find this new economy if you look hard for it.  In Greece, when a grassroots NGO mapped the country’s food co-ops, alternative producers, parallel currencies and local exchange systems they found more than 70 substantive projects and hundreds of smaller initiatives ranging from squats to carpools to free kindergartens.  To mainstream economics such things seem barely to qualify as economic activity – but that’s the point.

“They exist because they trade, however haltingly and inefficiently, in the currency of postcapitalism: free time, networked activity and free stuff.  It seems a meagre and unofficial and even dangerous thing from which to craft an entire alternative to a global system, but so did money and credit in the age of Edward III…”

I’m not sure he’s got it all figured out –

“In the meantime, for every robot that comes online, that’s several humans who lose their wages, unable to buy what the robot is making or vending.  It doesn’t add up, does it?  Please come out of your peer-to-peer data cloud and tell us the answer, Paul Mason.”

says Nigel Pollitt in https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2015/jul/21/non-virtual-elephant-in-paul-mason-postcapitalist-sharing-economy-room.  But it’s also not clear that Nigel groks all of what Paul is saying, and Paul has taken us a long way toward realigning our thinking toward 5D.  David and Christina Romer at Berkeley have done a lot of work on the Economics of Abundance.  Obama lured them both to Washington for a while, but they tired of being outshouted by the Harvard Old Boys and went back to Berkeley.

To review, this third 2020 Decades-Scale event is “In December the symbol for Contraction (Saturn) Merges with the symbol for Expansion (Jupiter; Saturn Initiates Jupiter 1 Aquarius 21 December 2020, Unx to the Capricorn Solstice).  This happens every 20 years and coincides with major Turning Points in the Political Economy, in this case the beginning of the Digital Age in earnest” (previous post).

The 20-year Jupiter-Saturn Cycles Initiated in Earth Signs for almost two Centuries, giving us the Industrial Era, where the Making of Stuff (Earth, Matter) was the prime driver of “Progress.”  In 2020 we start almost two Centuries of Saturn-Jupiter Initiations in Air Signs – the Digital Age.  The New Age was introduced gradually – the 1980 Initiation was in Air, giving us a preview of the Digital Age.  This was the Cycle that began with the introduction of the IBM PC.

The 2000 Initiation was one last smaller Cycle in Earth.  It began with the Dot-Com Crash, as the punchbowl was taken away in order for Society to decide what to keep from the Industrial Era, and what to discard.  That’s now finished, and we’re winding up to the Real Digital Age.  If the same Pattern repeats, expect a big technological or commercial breakthrough to be announced in December 2020, that will be germinal for the primary economic thrust of 2020-2040.

Once Ronald Reagan moved into the White House in 1980, Paul Volcker succeeded in squashing runaway Inflation by raising interest rates, creating a Recession in the process.  Obama also hired Volcker, who moved on quickly for the same reason as the Romers.  The Dot-Com Crash initiated the 2000 Cycle.  Add Jack Kennedy’s 1960 Recession, and we have three Jupiter-Saturn Cycles in a row beginning with Recessions.  It will be a surprise if the 2020 Cycle doesn’t begin with an economic Crash as well, and considering the staggering levels of Debt in the US and the World, many people are predicting a very long and very deep economic downturn once the current Boom ends.

But that’s measuring by Industrial Economics.  As Mason points out, those metrics may be totally Obsolete by then.  This gives us about a year to establish 5D Communities to Live in during the Digital Age as Industrial-Era economic structures and strategies and rules become irrelevant.  Maybe a year and a half; I’m planning for the Crash to happen prior to the December Saturn-Jupiter Initiation, so we have time and motivation to elect someone who can steer the larger Culture away from the Obsolete Worship of Avarice.

Of course, War can change the equation for those who “Choose” to stay in 3D.  The rest of us can Clarify the Intentions and the Enhanced Emotions that we want to dominate our Experience in our new 5D Community, and Create from there (see pp.76-80 in Joe Dispenza’s Becoming Supernatural).

Revelation Full Moon and 2020 Part 1

July 14, 2019

Not all those four Horsedudes and all, but Revelation as in Being Revealed, ie, Insight, particularly Revelation of What’s Been Denied (Station of Eris in 25 Eris, 7pm PDT 20 July).  The 25 Capricorn 16 July Full Moon is in the same Degree as the 20 July Max Impact of the astrological symbol for the Denied becoming Visible (Eris), so this week is all about Tattling.

If you Encounter someone who’s obviously in Denial this week, don’t hesitate to speak up – just be sure to be diplomatic about it; Questions always work better than Statements, and Innuendo better than Accusation.  And don’t be Smug or Retaliatory or Passive-Aggressive about it either; there’s an 80% chance they’ll hit you back with one that’s even more shattering to your own Ego.  What’s good for the Gander and all that.

Which causes us to Wonder, where is our trusty symbol for Ego Death (asteroid Nemesis) in all this?  Well what do you know, it’s Merged with the symbol for Awareness (Mercury).  Nice.  Maybe our marks will slap their forehead and say “OMG Why didn’t I think of that?  Thanks a million!” instead of breaking our nose.

We’ll get to all this in the next post.  For now, I want to start some Revealing about 2020.  I haven’t disassembled the whole year yet, but there are at least three Big Decade-Scale Events coming up next year.  Not to mention an election, if it’s held, that will compare in scope to the developments in the country you’d probably cross to get from Poland to France, in the year Anton Cermak was killed in Chicago.

  • In January the symbol for Compulsion (Pluto) and the symbol for Concentration (Saturn) Merge (Pluto Initiates Saturn 9a PST 12 January 2020 in 23 Capricorn), very near to this week’s Full Moon.  This Merger has historically occurred around Wars and the like.  Remember this all-too-believable Faux News…?

https://www.hoax-slayer.com/images/bush-upside-down-book.jpg

  • In March we begin a Decade where folks are likely to be more Emotional and Reactive than usual (on 17 March 2020 the Moon begins an 11-year Cycle wherein it travels Out Of Bounds twice a month).  The last time this happened, well – remember this…?

https://www.hoax-slayer.com/images/bush-upside-down-book.jpg

  • In December the symbol for Contraction (Saturn) Merges with the symbol for Expansion (Jupiter; Saturn Initiates Jupiter 1 Aquarius 21 December 2020, Unx to the Capricorn Solstice).  This happens every 20 years and coincides with major Turning Points in the Political Economy, in this case the beginning of the Digital Age in earnest.  The previous occurrence saw the Dot-Com Crash, but the time before that, the introduction of the original IBM PC (sans graphic interface or internal storage).

See the source image

We’ll talk in more detail about these three events soon as well.

Since people in 3D get all foamy at the mouth when a good Enemy comes into focus, Wars have proven to be reliable campaign strategies for Hoovering Up second terms.  Gosh, what if that was Revealed, and belligerents had to pay for Wars with campaign funds instead of tax money!  I know, unlikely.  We can PIAVA it though.  No need to Limit ourselves just because of poor odds – the symbol for Unlimited Potential (dwarf planet Chaos) is Lit Up by the Full Moon too, teaming with Intuition and buffered by Transcendence (Conjunct dwarf planet Asbolus and Opposite asteroid Bee-Zed).

We’re obviously way overdue for a shift in the 3D Political Economy, as the degeneration evident all over the “Developed” World reminds us.  As Automation replaces Huper Labor, the People who aren’t making or owning the Automatons are likely to be shut out of the Political Economy and forced to depend on the Kindness of Strangers for Survival.  Those who Survive the Climate Apocalypse and its Political ramifications, that is.  And who Survive 5G.  The whole business of 5G is likely to be a huge Cosmic Hint that the time to move to 5D is now, since the more Sensitive we are, the more 5G is likely to Destroy us.

So, we need to Tap Out these “the Way It’s Been” Projections, because Change Is Happening, even if still Underground.  With enough Poor Sweethearts we have plenty of 2019 left to Manifest Miracles for ourself and the Planet, and maybe even some for 3D Cultures.  No need to let a gloomy His-Story paint a bright Her-Story dull grey.  As we enter the Age of Aquarius we’re also leaving the Patriarchy.  Aquarius is “ruled” by the symbol for Soul (Uranus) after all.

Marilyn Raffaele’s Channeling for today gives us some orientation…

http://www.onenessofall.com/newest.html

“Know that the strife and conflicts taking place at this time on earth indicate the shifts of consciousness that are happening.  The status quo is being questioned and no longer blindly accepted by an ever increasing number of people.  The innate self serving goals of many three dimensional standards are beginning to be recognized for what they are and as more and more awaken, will be eliminated or transmuted to higher forms.  Know that all is proceeding according to plan.

“Some refuse to let go of three dimensional concepts now being recognized by many others as false.  They continue to identify with what is familiar in the belief that their belief system is their identity, showing others who they are.  These dear ones believe that they would no longer be the person they believe themselves to be if they were to change.

“This type of thinking represents separation and demonstrates the common human need to create an ideal persona based in the individual’s concepts of what constitutes a good, bad, perfect, ideal human–illusion at its finest.

“Many continue to believe and promote that change and new ways of thinking will never be as wonderful as in the past.  These dear ones live in the past, nostalgic for what they falsely believe were ‘the good old days’ not realizing that the past only seemed better because the same issues being exposed today were very much alive at that time as well, but were hidden.

“Never forget that those who remain fully three dimensional are also Divine Beings.  Your job is to live from your highest enlightened realizations in the ordinary moments of each day.  Many of those choosing to remain rigidly attached to illusion will at some point leave the planet as they will not be able to align with the higher dimensional frequencies.

“Do not overly concern yourselves with those choosing not to awaken at this time even if the person is a loved family member or friend.  Remember, every person has a Higher Self, Guides, and a spiritual contract and this lifetime may not be their chosen time to awaken.  After enough lifetimes lived in the illusions of duality and separation every soul grows tired of the nonsense and begins to seek for more.

“Evolution can be postponed, but not avoided forever because the reality of every soul is Oneness with Source.”

A couple of notes that may be of interest to some folks, on Sodom and ‘Oumuamua…

https://www.universetoday.com/140752/a-meteor-may-have-exploded-in-the-air-3700-years-ago-obliterating-communities-near-the-dead-sea/

https://arstechnica.com/science/2018/11/nailing-down-the-nature-of-oumuamua-its-probably-a-comet-but/

 

Initiations are important because they signify a Change in their portion of the Zeitgeist.  They’re particularly relevant to Projects we may be Beginning.

For example, today’s Initiation of Mars (Action) by Neptune (Trance).  The Mars-Neptune segment of the Zeitgeist is about how our Actions coordinate with our Spirituality and with our Culture (both of which are Neptunian), and how we Act out potential Conflicts between our Spirituality and our Culture’s Expectations.  Mars-Neptune is a relatively short Cycle, renewing every couple of years.

An Initiation means we’re Beginning a New Cycle.  By then the Old Cycle is in tatters, as the last third or so of any Cycle is theoretically its Destructuring.  Which doesn’t mean that there aren’t people and institutions with deep investments in the Old Cycle.  The Dead Cycle began January 2017 in 10 Pisces, “An aviator flies on through ground-obscuring clouds.”  That certainly seems to apply well to the person who’s been piloting the US for just about that period of time, and how their Actions have reflected their Spirituality (Narcissism) and demeaned their Culture’s Expectations (Leadership).

So it may be good news that we’re in for a Change.  The New Cycle is about “A lady wrapped in a large stole of Fox fur” (14 Pisces), which we’d edit somewhat as “A lady wrapped in fur stolen from a large Fox.”  A denizen of the 1% apparently, and perhaps another indication of how Actions reflect Spirituality (Materialism) and Cultural Expectations (Consumption).  But then, perhaps the Consumerism will be so Conspicuous that people finally stop worshiping Wealth like it was Royalty.

This Cycle runs through mid-June 2020, and the next one begins at 21 Pisces, “Under the watchful and kind eyes of a Chinese servant, a girl fondles a little white Lamb.”  Isn’t that Explosive!  These Sabian Symbols were Channeled in the 1930s by a psychic in Los Angeles. so the Chinese servant is historically plausible.  And perhaps they thought of “fondling” a little differently than we would in the #MeToo era.  At any rate, the Symbol suggests that our shortcomings in Respect for All Beings may be Challenged as we enter the Digital Age.  Not that stealing fur from a Fox is any better than feeling up a Lamb.  And who knows, maybe it means that crotch-grabbers will finally get their due.

For now, how will we adapt to coordinating our Actions, Spirituality, and Culture around stolen Fur?  Certainly there are implications about Conservation that we can pursue, both as local efforts to Conserve and Restore Nature, and as Resistance to our Narcissist in Chief’s wholesale land and seabed gimmes to the oil and coal industries.  As the World Changes from a blind aviator to a naked Fox, the US Congress is Changing from the Party of Avarice to the Party of Wannabe Avarice.  Maybe the Angry Freshpersons will expose and embarrass the Wannabe Avarice elements of the old Party and Change it.  We can hope.

Quantum Jump 15: Eclipse III

July 26, 2018

Just a few notes about Eclipse Timing, in case you’re still trying to plan (or make sense out of) your Sleep Schedule…

  • The Sun Squared Uranus 25 July at 5am PDT
  • The Sun Opposes Mars 26 July at 10pm PDT – as I write this
  • The Moon Squares Uranus 27 July at 9am PDT
  • Partial Eclipse begins 27 July at 10:15 am PDT
  • The Moon Crosses Mars 27 July at Noon PDT
  • Totality begins 27 July at 12:30 pm PDT
  • The Moon Opposes the Sun 27 July at 1:30 pm PDT
  • Totality ends 27 July at 2:15 pm PDT
  • Partial Eclipse ends 27 July at 4:30 pm PDT
  • Mars’s closest approach to Earth occurs 31 July at 1am PDT
  • Mars (Retrograde) Squares Uranus 1 August at pm PDT

The span of Totality, 12:30 to 2:15 pm PDT, even if we aren’t in the right place to be able to See the Eclipse, will be an excellent time to Meditate on What You Want for yourself and for the Planet, as the Moon (Authenticity) will be Totally Illuminated, in the esoteric sense.  Ultimately, the Force that anchors Energy into Form is Lunar.  The Vibrations we send out during this longest Eclipse of the Century, will have much more Power to help Evolve the Anthroposphere than at other Times.

Let’s start now, if we haven’t already, to see if we can Subvert the 2020 War…

Stormy Mixed with Valentines

February 12, 2017

We could use that forecast often I think – Stormy Mixed with Valentines, as certainly the Storms, if we Respond Lovingly to the Detritus they wash loose, produce Gifts of Grace.  

The Big Deal upcoming occurs on St. Valentine’s Day, 14 February, 6pm PST.  It’s accompanied by a related Little Deal today, 12 February, noon PST.  They’re both Initiations.  We emphasize Initiations – Beginnings of New Cycles – because they flag Changes in our Psychic Milieu.  Before we talk about the specific Energies that are Changing, lets just compare the natures of the Old Cycles with the natures of the New Cycles.

The Old Cycles were characterized by “Squirrels hiding from hunters,” since 2012, and “Children protected by sunbonnets playing on the beach,” since 1984.  Those fairly well identify the Advance Guard of the Yang Female over the recent past.  

We call these folks, which undoubtedly includes some or even most of us, “the Advance Guard of the Yang Female” (see Genia Pauli Haddon’s books) because that’s how we see them.  Genia refers to the Pushing and Birthing element of the Female rather than the Yin element of Embracing and Nurturing.

In the Yang Female milieu, Nature and the Planet are Reanimated, Individuals and Groups are Equally Respected, Diversity is Valued, Collaboration and Doing-Your-Own-Thing  replaces Competition, Yintegity is Valued more than Yangtegrity, and folks are highly Self-Motivated to Assertively Cooperate to alleviate perceived Limitations and Rebirth a New Planet.

So far as I understand it (based largely on Michael Roads’s books and the Arcturian Channelings), the folks who Strive for “Ascension” and “Fifth Dimensional” Reality Strive for the same kind of Planet, though “Allow” may be a more appropriate verb than “Strive.”

I attribute the Squirrels-Hiding-since-2012 characteristic because while Yang Female behaviors and notions have gotten Stronger in many ways since Time-As-We-Know-It-Ended in 2012, it hasn’t (or hadn’t) yet reached the 100-Monkey Tripping Point and infected everyone, allowing the Patriarchy a Blow-Hard Blow-Off for what we hope will be the last time.

The Sunbonneted-Kids-Playing-on-the-Beach-since-1984 attribute reminds me of the giddiness of the folks who have already Ascended to the Yang Feminine, Enjoying the Cosmic Joke, swimming with Dolphins, and riding the bus furthur yet.  The Sunbonnets are an interesting artifact.  They’re introduced as a Protection, and in the Fifth Dimension Protection means Transparent Vulnerability or Neutrality – the equivalent of wearing the Sun of Illumination on your head, perhaps on your forehead.

Now, what Changes this week?

The five-year Cycle that’s been characterized by Squirrels-hiding-from-hunters becomes Initiation into an Occult Sisterhood or Siblinghood. and the 35-year Cycle that has been Kids-in-Sunbonnets-playing-on-the-beach-becomes Flag Bearers.  Methinks we’re talking about “Nevertheless, She Persevered.”

The Occult (hidden) part of the Siblinghood implies that we have another five years underground yet.  We’re no longer actively Hiding from Hunters, but “We, who are on the road / Must have a Code that we can live by / And so, become Ourself / Because the Past is just a goodbye,” as Graham Nash put it, more or less.  Which begs the question, “What comes after that?”

The next Cycle begins in June 2021, at 24 Pisces,”On a small island surounded by the vast expanse of the sea, people are seen living in close interaction.”  To me that sounds like Success, like we’ve achieved Cooperation over Competition, with “Harmony and Understanding, Sympathy and Trust Abounding” (as sung by the Fifth Dimension, lyrics by James Rado & Gerome Ragni).  The 2021 date is very significant, because that’s when the 180-year Digital Age begins in Earnest.

It also implies that between now and 2021, the Patriarchy does indeed Self-Destruct, which otherwise is a source of great Fear and Loathing.  Since the Digital Age could easily make many employment opportunities obsolete, Distribution of Wealth is a critical question for the rest of this decade, and the Patriarchy has made it clear that Sharing is not their game.

Now, the Energy of a Cycle is Strong at its Initiation, but then it goes underground till the Cycle’s Waxing Square.  The Waxing Square of the 35-year Cycle doesn’t occur till April 2026.  So while the Flag-Bearers Nevertheless-She-Persevered Cycle is going underground, we first take our Siblinghood underground as well, and then our Small-Island-Close-Cooperation may occur as Communities within the larger still-Patriarch-dominated Cultures.

The third future 5-year Cycle also, “coincidentally,” begins in April 2026.  It starts at 3 Aries, “The cameo profile of a person, suggesting the shape of their country: The sustaining power of the whole, as the individual identifies with its life.”  Bingo.

So, what are these Cycles?

The [2012/Squirrels Hiding, 2017/Occult Siblinghood, 2021/Close Cooperation, 2026/Group-Identification] Cycle is Moira-Neptune.  

Asteroid Moira is named for The Fates.  The three Fates – Klotho who cuts the fabric, Lachesis who measures the length, and Atropos who cuts the chord – are collectively called the Moirai (plural), and the singular Moira represents Fate as a whole.  As an Either/Or Duality, we know Fate to be a property of the Observing mind rather than a property of Observed Reality, a crucial difference being that we have the Free Will to Choose how we Respond to “Fate.”

The best single keyword for Neptune is probably Spirit.  So we can see the Moira-Neptune Cycle as the Fated Course of our Spiritual Growth.  In other words we’ve had to keep it Close to the Chest for the last five years, for the next five we find our Communities, and after that we can look forward to Living and Collaborating more Freely and Openly.

The [1984/Kids Playing on the Beach in Sunbonnets, 2017/Flag Bearer] Cycle is Saturn-Ixion.  Saturn Asks us Clearly to set aside secondary Priorities, and focus on The Most Important Thing.  Ixion represents what we’ve Repressed because it was Socially Forbidden.  Since Nothing is Forbidden in the Next World, we need to fully Embrace our Suppressed Genius before we can Enter.  Otherwise we’ll be flaring away our Energy in Judgment of and Resistance to Other – just more Patriarchy.

The Forbidden is usually encaged by Shame or Fear (or introjected Anger – the Anger of others that we’ve adopted as if it was our own), so the path to reach it is through exactly that – Shame and Fear and Anger.  If Anger arises, what would it say, and in whose voice would it be?

We can Let Go of nothing until we have Fully Embraced and Accepted it.  So the name of the game here (the Stormy) is to be Mindful that if our Shame or Fear or Anger arises, that’s exactly what we Want, and exactly what we Want to take the Time and Space to Lovingly Embrace.  The Valentines are the Grace and Relief we feel when we’re Successful.

An Initiation into an Occult Siblinghood usually requires Making an Oath and Breaking other, past Oaths.  Dwarf planet Orcus represents Making and Breaking Oaths, and Orcus still Opposes Neptune and the Neptune-Moira Initiation.  Not only that, Moira-Neptune is the focus of a Mjolnir or Trioctile Finger of God, based on the Square between Vesta (Unconscious and Limiting Beliefs) and Jupiter-Haumea (Our Expansive Rebirth).  That creates a Trioctile Kite topped by Orcus and aimed at Moira-Neptune.  Which is to say…

Be especially Mindful about any Oaths or Vows or Promises or Threats (such as “I’ll Never Do That Again!” or even Grudges and Prejudices (such as “I’ll Never Trust Those People Again!”) you discover in your Psychic closets and dungeons.  Under the avalanche of thoughts and Emotions that deluge us daily, these are the flags that mark the edge of the highway to our Liberation, if we use to find and Embrace our Limiting Beliefs rather than using them to puff up our Ego.

Don’t forget that all this is really just a side-show to our Main Event, which is Rebirthing Ourselves into a New Timeline or Ego-Lifetime founded in Self-Love – the Sappho/Klotho-Sedna/Aletheia Yin Gate that’s the Core of the Saturn-Ixion (and Jupiter-Haumea/Expansive Rebirth and Uranus-Eris/Yintegrity and Chaos-Atropos/Ending Limitation) Golden Rectangle.

Dan and the Arcturians have some interesting and relevant comments today, from… 

http://danielscranton.com/there-are-no-mistakes-∞the-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

“Greetings.  We are the Arcturian Council.  We are pleased to connect with all of you.

“There are no mistakes being made by any of you or by humanity as a collective.  You are never making a mistake when you make a choice that doesn’t work out the way that you had hoped it would.  You are exploring, and you will forever be exploring.  And as an explorer, the outcome is not as important as what you discover along the way.

“So as you make a choice, you make a discovery, and if you are paying attention, you will feel the vibrational ramifications of the choice you have made.  That vibration is information that you can then use to steer yourself in a direction that is more to your liking.  There is no real outcome, because there is no finality to your experience of self.  You may have chapters that you go through, periods of exploring one thing or another, but they are not the end of anything.

“You are accessing more energy whenever you make a choice, and for that simple reason alone, none of your choices could possibly be mistakes.  It is through movement of energy that more energy gets summoned and accessed, and by making a choice and taking steps towards something, you are certainly accessing more energy.  The energy that you access is you.

“And therefore, everything leads to and results in your evolution.  Everything, no matter what it is.  It’s not up to you to determine what the right choices are so that you may make them and stay on the right track.  It is much more important for you to live your lives and have experiences than it is for you to achieve some sort of perfection.

“So think back to anything in your life that you would call a mistake, anything that you feel regret about, and reframe it.  See it for what it really is; it’s an opportunity for you to know more of who you are, to feel more energy flowing through you, and it’s an opportunity for you to make a new choice.

“When you stop making choices for yourselves, that’s when you really get into trouble.  When you refer to a book or a teaching or a religion to make all of your choices for you, that’s when you’ve begun to thwart the energy that is so natural, that wants to flow so freely, and that wants you to get out there and make some choices.

“This is a free will universe, and you get to decide what direction you move in for the purpose of exploring more of this beautiful universe, which is ultimately just you exploring you.

“We are the Arcturian Council, and we have enjoyed connecting with you.”

2020C or Portal 24.11a

November 23, 2016

Okay, past time to catch up on 24 November.  Let’s look at the Big Picture first.  The Deconstruction or Void phase of a Cycle lies between the Waning Square and the next Initiation or Conjunction – from 270 to 360 Degrees.  However we had become Attached to the Developments and Outcomes of that Cycle, we Descend into the Void around that Attachment.

Several major Cycles are Descending into the Void between now and 2020.  We’ve talked about one of these, the Saturn-Pluto Cycle…

https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2016/10/20/2020-b/

https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2016/10/19/2020-a/

The major process symbolized by Saturn-Pluto, in the popular mind (as reinforced by circumstances which probably aren’t “coincidental”) at least, is Destruction – 9/11 being the iconic example.  Since most astrologers read Saturn as Limitation…

as we’ve said many times, we read Saturn as The Most Important Thing, which does indeed Ask us to Limit our Attention to Priority #1…

and Pluto as Death…

as we’ve said many times, we read Pluto as Transformation, especially Transformation of the Zeitgeist or Primary Trance, which requires a shift of Identity, aka Ego Death…

it’s no wonder that they read Saturn-Pluto as Destruction.  We read it as an Opportunity to Define (Saturn) which Trance or Propaganda (Pluto) is being Tranceformed.  Of course we’re looking at a Square, so we’re looking at Mastering this process through Challenge.  As they say, if it doesn’t make you Stronger, it Kills you.

The 24 November Waning Square, which precedes another 2020 Initiation, is the Jupiter-Pluto Square.  The Current Jupiter-Pluto Cycle started in early December 2007, just as we Endured the first  Derivative Crash, propagandized by the Perps as a “Subprime Mortgage” Crisis.  It occurred at 29 Sagittarius, “A fat boy mowing the lawn of his house on an elegant suburban street.”  Interesting metaphor, as so many of these houses were pulled out from under their overfed suburbanites.

The Jupiter-Pluto Cycle in general is about Expanding the popular paradigm.  We can read the current Cycle, with the assistance of hindsight, as Expanding our Insecurity.  From that Perspective, the Challenge here is to Let Go of the Attachment to Insecurity that we’ve built up since the previous economic Crash.  This fits very well with our recent astroemphasis on Trust, and with the delusions of return to Fat Boys Mowing that a certain Grifter so successfully sold to eager buyers.

However, this is the entrance to the Void.  Like most of the Grifter’s products, it won’t take long for the promises to fail to deliver.  In the Void the Demise of Attachment to Insecurity doesn’t mean physical Prosperity, it means the Opportunity to Let Go of Negative thoughts and Emotions, Worry, Lack of Self-Love (Self-Love having recently been Reborn), and other such symptoms of disconnection from the True Self (the True Self remaining our primary point of emphasis here while Uranus continues to Conjoin Eris and moves beyond its Waning Square to Pluto).

Another 2020 Transition will be the Waning Square of Pluto to Eris, and the Pluto-Eris Cycle entering the Void.  The Pluto-Eris Cycle is about the Truthiness of the Mass Trance or Zeitgeist.

The Pluto-Eris Square occurs in late January 2020, at 24 Capricorn-Aries.  The next Jupiter-Pluto Cycle Initiates in early April 2020 at 25 Capricorn.

2020 B

October 20, 2016

By 2020 we’re still working on these 22-25 Degrees!  Good idea to put extra effort into our very busy and demanding homework on these Degrees now; the more we do now, the easier it will be later!  The Universe isn’t Random – this long span of working with these Degrees is a primer for the 2020 Saturn-Pluto.  When we’re speaking of Huperity at large, Saturn-Pluto makes the Lizards jump for Joy, creating some of the bleakest times for Huperity.  Like the massive earthquakes in Haiti and Chile, or “9/11,” or NAFTA and the WTO, or AIDS – correlates to our last four Saturn-Pluto adventures.

The 2020 Saturn-Pluto occurs at 23 Capricorn, “Bravery in Combat” – which it is likely to feel like if it turns out to be a showdown between the Patriarchy and its successor, or between the Lizards and the Mammals – we’ll bring this up later.

It draws a big crowd – it’s a Stellium of six planets between 22 and 26 Degrees of Capricorn – Sun, Ceres, Saturn, Pluto, Mercury, and Hopi.

 That combination has the potential to Change Huper Herstory significantly.

The Stellium Squares Eris, which is Stationary, and makes a Minor Tricolor to Chaos-Asbolus: Eris Square Stellium Quincunx Chaos-Asbolus Sextile Eris…

“I Wonder how the Infinite Nature (Chaos) of my Intuition (Asbolus) will influence the Stress between my Unconscious Trance (Pluto) and my Conscious Will (Saturn) and help me Accept the Truth (Eris)?”

We’ll go into the Moon’s deeper meaning of Instinct and Authenticity – which should totally Change our Attitude toward Pluto-Moon, in a little while.

The biggest Configuration in the 2020 Pluto-Saturn Initiation chart is a Diamond Star (a T-Square and a Yod pointing at the same planet) to a Stationary Nemesis.  Pallas-Veritas and Chaos-Asbolus form the base of the T-Square.  Hopi-Venus and Eris form the base of the Yod.  As part of this Configuration…

Nemesis Square Chaos-Asbolus Quincunx Stellium Trine Nemesis forms a Major Tricolor…

“I Wonder how the Infinite Nature (Chaos) of my Intuition (Asbolus) will influence the Stress between my Unconscious Trance (Pluto) and my Conscious Will (Saturn) and help me Understand how I sabotage myself (Nemesis)?”

Which brings us directly back to the Moon.  In mundane 3D Reality, the Moon symbolizes our “Random” Emotions.  Someone cuts us off in traffic, and one day we’re shaking our fist at them, the next day we slow down and make space for them, assuming they have a good reason to hurry, maybe even say a quick Prayer for their Safety.  Venus on the other hand represents our Consistent Emotions – our Values.  Unless there are extenuating circumstances or superior Values, we seldom Feel Enthused when someone commits murder.  The third level of the Emotional panoply is Vesta, which stands for our Unconscious Beliefs.  It takes Experience to figure out which of our Values arise from our Heart (Venus) and which arise from our Karma or Programming or Archetypes (Vesta).

Now, let’s look at those Random Emotions.  Chances are, the fellow (it probably was a male) whom you got mad at for cutting you off was probably himself Angry, maybe he thought you were slowing him down, or maybe he was just having a bad day, or maybe all of his days were bad ones.  The person you didn’t get mad at, probably did have a good reason to be in a hurry, rushing to the hospital or pick up their kid from school on time.  Feelings don’t exist in a vacuum, they’re a Field, and we have to be very careful to distinguish our own from other peoples’.

What does that tell us about the Moon?  It represents our Instincts!

How often do we Trust our Instincts?  When we’re cut off in traffic, we don’t need to invest a lot of intellectual firepower in figuring out why it happened, so we just back off the throttle, either out of consideration or out of caution.  When someone gives us a very subtle insult, the issue is a lot different.  Do we allow ourself to React Honestly?  Do we consider who it was that insulted us?  Do we take a time out and investigate whether it’s really just an old Unconscious wound of our own that was triggered by an innocent comment, and not an insult at all?  

If we were living in Yintegrity, and it was Safe to do so (it wouldn’t cost us our livelihood or our Life), we might React Honestly, watch where the chips fell, and iron out the complications accordingly – readjust our Relationship if it really was an undeserved insult, or make amends if their defense was credible.  Then examine our own wounds later, in the privacy of our own Psyche (if we didn’t have a bruise already, the insult wouldn’t have hurt).  If we really Trusted our Instincts, we might not even care if our Livelihood or Life was threatened – we might take it as an indication that Change was on the schedule, and follow the thread with Curiosity.

Astrology always gives us plenty of Opportunity to practice.  The Moon crosses or Squares or Opposes Pluto once a week!  It won’t be as intense, but Moon over Pluto will have a lot of core similarity to Pluto over Moon.  This will be excellent practice for all of us – when the Moon crosses Pluto, how do we Relate to our Instincts?  Do we Learn anything about how we Relate to our Instincts?  Here’s our schedule for the next month…

  • 21 October, noon PDT (plus or minus an hour or two)
  • 26 October, 1am PDT
  • 5 November, 2am PDT
  • 12 November, 8pm PDT

Let me know how this turns out – do you Observe anything useful?  Learn anything useful?

Honesty and Trust (and Discernment) around our Instincts is a big part of our Authenticity – we could think of the Moon as the local surrogate for Eris.  We routinely discount her because we’re programmed to “be Nice.”  Authenticity is represented by the Eighteenth Harmonic – planets that are separated by Angles that are multiples of twenty Degrees, half a Novile.  We can Learn a lot about our Relationship to our Authenticity by looking at which planets in our natality (birth chart) are separated by multiples of twenty Degrees.

Next we need to look at what else is going on in 2020; it’s actually more significant than the Pluto-Saturn Initiation.  The Pluto-Saturn Cycle spans thirty-some years (Pluto moves faster at some times than others), while the more important Cycle we’ll talk about spans two centuries, and will have a big impact on our Lives.  We hint at it strongly in Reasons for Optimism below.
