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.

2020 A

October 19, 2016

Another regular reader writes…

“I’ve become aware through your posts about the 2020 conjunction.  I did the chart for 12 January 2020 when Saturn and Pluto are conjunct at 22 Capricorn, conjunct my natal Moon by less than 1 degree of sensitivity.  Should I be concerned?!  That looks like a very potent … something.” 

Well, if there’s any astroevent that folks almost universally report to be max nasty, it’s Pluto (in the Sky now/then) crossing your natal Moon.  Ask Fernanda, who’s just been through it…

https://alchemicalastrology.wordpress.com/tag/pluto-square-moon/

So you’ve got a little over three years to Learn to Be Totally Loving with All Possible Emotions – should be Easy, right?  Your Pluto-Moon Can-Opener will be almost a month later, but your Saturn-Moon Can-Opener is only a couple of days after the Pluto-Saturn Initiation, so The Most Important Thing (Saturn) for you, for a while before Pluto actually does the deed, will be Learning to Be Totally Loving with All Possible Emotions.  With care, you should be well prepared.

“Pluto-Moon Can-Opener” means the first time Pluto in the Sky then crosses their natal Moon; Can-Opener because the first astroevent in a series almost always Opens a Can of Worms that we’d been blissfully ignoring or Denying.  No one experiences Pluto-Moon twice, so we have nil direct Experience with it in the Lifetime.  If we’re old enough, though, we can look back to a Pluto-Moon Square to retrieve quality indirect Experience.

“Saturn-Moon Can-Opener” means the first time Saturn in the Sky then crosses their natal Moon.  Saturn-Moon “Transits” (planets in the sky now/then crossing natal planets) occur every 7 years or so (counting Squares and Oppositions), so by reviewing all those prior time periods we can well prepare for a Saturn-Moon Transit.

The “Pluto-Saturn Initiation” refers to what will be going on in the Sky then.

The key to any Emotion is staying in the Present Moment.  Emotions are Paper Tigers; they don’t actually bite, they just cast threatening Shadows.  Under the Influence of any heavy Emotion, what’s going on in the Present Moment runs something like…

  • (1) “I Am [name of Emotion]” when you’re Identifying with the Emotion – or worse yet, with any Negative Thoughts that accompany and reinforce the Emotion
    • (2) “This Feeling Overwhelms me” when you’re beginning to break out of the Identification or Trance – and you’re still Conscious, ie, not Regressed to an age where you had little Skill with Emotion; hence the benefit of studying prior Experience
    • (3) “What color is the wallpaper?” if you’re Regressed, because there’s a good chance it will be different than it was when you were that earlier age, giving you an Opportunity to return to the Present Moment
  • (4) The next step is “I Feel [name of Emotion],” shifting from “I Am crap” to “I Feel crappy” as you Disidentify further
  • (5)  “You poor Sweetheart, you’re really Feeling krappy, aren’t you” as you Identify with Compassion instead of crap.  If you’ve practiced this a thousand times, and you’re lucky, your Abandoned and possibly Abused Herstorical Child, from your earlier age, will then talk back to you, giving you the Opportunity to bring them and their Unique Skills into the Present Moment as an integral part of your Self
  • (6) “Wow, that Emotion was Compelling” when you’ve stepped aside and let the bus run over someone else

If you’re working with it constructively.  You can see why Pluto makes it so hard when you notice the key words…

  • “Overwhelming” – the Ego is Overwhelmed whenever you misinterpret Labor Pains to be Death Throes – which is always an Opportunity to examine our Fear of Death.  Never pass up an Opportunity to do that.
  • “Trance” – Pluto is about Transformation, ie, ReFormation of the Unconscious Trance that has been driving your Consciousness as if it was a drone
  • “Compelling” – Pluto is always Compulsive

Here’s a wonderfully precise description of the fundamental issue…

Through the Veil – Huge Reboot 8

September 16, 2016

Here’s a fascinating blog…

https://paulsylvia.wordpress.com/about/ 

that I came across because, as a result of SoulSpeak’s reblog (Grazi!), Paul and Sylvia quoted parts of Huge Reboot 7 (again, Grazi!) in it.

The Loss of the Veil was predicted by Neptune’s Initiation of the Moon’s South Node in the birth chart for the current Century.  The Moon’s South Node is the place where its orbit crosses below the plane of the Earth’s orbit around the Sun.  It’s not darker down there, but it’s closer to the Ancestors, and so provides a broader Perspective.  It’s sort of as if the Moon turns Retrograde when it crosses its South Node.

The common interpretation of the South Node is that it’s where our Karma resides.  We of course see Karma as our collection of Habit Patterns.  Habits are great – what a pickle we’d be in if we had to remember to Breathe every few seconds!  The downside of Habits is that they easily fade into the Unconscious (switch frequently from manual to automatic transmission to see what I mean), which is good because we don’t have to make every Decision, but can disrupt our Lives because we can be driving on autopilot and not see the oncoming.

And we can be sucked into what are called Archetypes – huge extra-Individual Energy Patterns that have a Life of their own can take over an Ego and cause it to Act Out the Purposes of the Archetypal “Entity” rather than the Purposes of the Individual.  Self-Sabotage results.  Nationalism and Racism are great examples, as is Pleasing.  Archetypes are often anchored by Regional Geology.  They aren’t Evil, but they can have untoward effects if not managed properly.  A particularly troublesome Archetype at the moment is Greed.

The South Node also harbors the Hidden Skills that we need in order to Achieve the Mission we have set for the Lifetime, which hides in the North Node.  Our Mission is hidden behind our Deepest Desire – hidden because we usually feel some sort of Guilt or Shame about our Deepest Desire.  Our Deepest Desire isn’t the same as our Mission – it’s a roadmap that will lead us to our Mission, if we trust it enough to follow it.

In the South Node, our Crucial Skills are hidden behind “Held Emotions” – Emotions that we don’t allow ourself to Feel without Guilt or Shame.  Held Emotions also block our Intuition because they cloud our view across the Veil.  

The example I often use is, suppose we have a “Past” Life as a Warrior.  Well, of course that Life is likely to end brutally, that’s what Warriors do.  So if we ended up renouncing our Warriorship in Pain, making a Vow to Fight No More Forever, then that Oath will become a Limiting Belief in Lifetimes that follow.

Your natal Orcus, and its Angular Relationship to your natal South Node, will provide information about the Limiting Beliefs that hold you back from your Mission.  The asteroid Vesta is also a symbol for our Unconscious Beliefs.

Neptune represents our Relationship with all realms larger than ourself, including our Cultures, our Godheads and Goddesshearts, even our Archetypes.  Neptune symbolizes Confusion on the Material level, because when it’s Lit Up our Neptunian Relationships Change, and if they’re Foundational to our Ego, we’re in trouble.  As we often say, Confusion is the first stage of Growth, if we can manage to avoid circumventing it with mental autoeroticism.  

Neptune also symbolizes Clarity on the Spiritual level, because the Spiritual level is all about our Relationship to realms larger than ourself.  Neptune becomes Clarity when we put our Ego in its proper place relative to its Betters.  It should be obvious that whatever is Unconscious – Archetypes, for instance – will interfere with that.  Which is precisely why Confusion is the first stage of Growth – the Edges of our Consciousness are Expanding.

We think of the asteroid Juno as symbolizing the Edges of our Consciousness, because Juno is all about Merging.  The asteroid Pallas is her complement, as Pallas is all about Boundaries.  The asteroid Ceres, symbolizing Sustainability, is the “Coin” that subsumes the two.

So when Neptune Initiates the South Node, an Ego that’s unwilling to Grow is in big trouble.  We’ve talked frequently about Ego Death, how to identify it and how to deal with it, so we won’t go into that here.  This month we’ll be more likely confronted by our Upper Limits (“This is not Credible because I was taught that if something sounds too good to be True, it probably is”).  On the other hand, and Ego that’s willing to look beyond its birdcage, will find Surprise and Delight in a Neptune-South Node Initiation,

The South Node-Neptune Cycle that began at the turn of the Century was Initiated at 4 Aquarius, “A Hindu Yogi demonstrates his healing powers: The disciplined use of spiritual energies in restoring the natural harmony disturbed by man’s inharmonic attempts to transcend Nature through mind.

We haven’t mentioned it because there was so much more going on at this “New Dawn” quasi-Eclipse, but in the Full Moon chart, Neptune is only a Degree and a half shy of Initiating the Moon’s South Node again, so Neptune and the South Node are in fact Conjunct, and anyone with two Degrees or more of Sensitivity to Neptune or the South Node, will be Feeling it already.  (With regard to Sensitivity, less is more – “two Degrees or more of Sensitivity” means “two Degrees or less of physical Separation.)

Our current Neptune-South Node Initiation, which will govern the next sixteen years, isn’t Exact until 3 November, at 10 Pisces – “An aviator pursues their journey, flying through ground-obscuring clouds: Hupersons’ ability to develop powers and skills which by transcending natural limitations allow them to operate in [non-physical] realms.”  Bodes well for Piercing the Veil.

Post-Modern Biology tells us that our Mitochondria, which have their own maternally given genes distinct from the paternal-maternal genes in our cell nuclei, have direct access to All of the Information in the Universe via their direct connection to the Zero Point Field.  There are two influences that can clog that direct connection and hence shut down our access to All of the Information in the Universe – heavy metals and Held Emotions.  In a word, The Veil.

We can’t in good conscience talk about South-Node Cycles without considering the other side of the Karmic Coin – North-Node Cycles.  While the Yogic Neptune-South Node Initiation of January 2000 would govern the following sixteen years, its effect would be Waning in the latter half of that period, while the North Node-Neptune Cycle Waned.  

The Neptune-North Node Initiation occurred in April 2008 at 25 Aquarius, “A butterfly with the right wing more perfectly formed: The capacity to develop the rational and fully conscious aspect of mind ahead of normal evolution.”  That Cycle will now begin to Wane.  2008, recall, was right in the middle of the Neptune-Chiron-Jupiter triple Initiation, our by-now well-known “Fresh Violets in an Ancient Pottery Bowl.”

Corresponding as it did with the Derivatives Meltdown engendered by the Greed Archetype, and based very clearly on previous Chiron-Neptune Cycles (which are about Despair and Miracles around the Relationship between the Individual and the Culture/Economy), we read the Fresh Violets as the roots of the underground Economy that has sprouted to replace the shift work that NAFTA and its cousins have assigned to the dustbin, and as the roots of the Victory Garden-equivalents that have sprouted to replace the denutritioned and poisoned faux Food sold by the Corporate Cartel.

We as Egos benefit from assigning Consciousness of some degree to supra-Personal Entities like the Archetypes.  It’s fairly obvious that the Greed Archetype is sowing the seeds of its own Fall from Grace, whether that’s the negative effect of becoming too Ambitious, or the positive effect of its natural striving for Balance.  We can see the Greater Good Archetype growing well since the 2008 peak of Greed – we have to consider them as one Coin, spinning slowly as it prepares to fall on one side or the other in alternate Universes.

So this New Dawn in inextricably bound to the new Neptune-South Node Initiation – Flying Blind, Trusting our Instincts.  Idealism, which will create a defined path from Present to Future, will be gradually replaced by our combined Instinctive Genii Surprising and Delighting us – once we Learn to Appreciate Confusion for it’s own sake.

Brexit and Goblinization

July 7, 2016

One of the Fears around “Brexit” is that Europe will become “Balkanized” again and create more Wars to End All Wars.  This is an intriguing fantasy (?) conversation from the Continent…

While the “populist” gets the last word, it makes it sound like a polite debate over which movie is better, rather than the struggle for Survival between the 1% who know it’s either “us or them” and the 99% who understand that even if they wanted to protect themselves at the expense of Others, they couldn’t pull it off.  Actually it’s probably more like 94%, if we pull out the Trump supporters who are duped into believing they can do just that if only the government, society, and minorities would get out of their way.

Here’s a more comprehensive view of globalization issues…

Obama’s TPP, which stands for the Toiled Paper Project because that’s what it’ll do for your nation’s Sovereignty, is kind of an EU-ization of the Pacific, excluding (purposely) the Chinese.  Nigel would have us believe that the EU operates in a similar fashion.  Does it?  I don’t know.  I know that the financial side of the EU is run by Wall Street alums with the same Perspective that has run the US into the toilet.  I don’t know how the EU ranks Citizens versus Corporations on other trade issues.  Maybe someone can educate me.

Here’s an even more comprehensive view; long, but worth it. He even recommends Curiosity about the “heartless corporate executives, greedy bankers, cowardly political elites, and drone-like bureaucrats and technocrats”

Yintegrity Rising

June 23, 2016

A reader writes…

I don’t think they are happy with me.  I am not following their tradition and I’m not sure what the impact of that will be, but I don’t care!  I’m not doing what I should, I’m doing what I want.  And that is SO different for me.

“I’ve always been the analyze/plan/execute person.  I do my duty.  I fulfill my promises.  If I commit, I follow through.  Period.  No doubt.  No question.  I guess what you would call “Yangtegrity.”  And it has served me well.  Very well.  For my whole life.

“Over the past…18 months, two years, there’s been a growing resistance to all of it!  I don’t even want to show up half the time!  (I’ve always taught my kids-Showing up is 80% of success.)  My intellect is so confused, my ego is having panic attacks.  Is this moving into Yintegrity?  

“There’s a third part of me that is very calmly standing by, reassuring that we’ll work out a new way of functioning, everything will be fine, the earth will not stop spinning on its axis.  So is that the pressure and fear I’m feeling?  The shift into Yintegrity?”

You bet!!  

And like any Big Change, there’s a hollow space, a gap, where our Olde Ego is in Lackawanna (“I know I’m done for; why should I care?”), and our New Ego hasn’t got its training wheels on straight yet.  So we’re wobbly.  Confusion is good; it’s a reliable sign that we’re Growing.  Anxiety is common, as our Olde Patriarchy-Attuned Egos needed to know what was going on so they could figure out who to Please how, when.

Time for PIAVAs.  “Great Spirit, please help me Trust my True Future so I can Surrender my False Past more comfortably” or the like.  “I wonder where the Hell I’m going, anyway.”  With Saturn Waning Square to Neptune and moving into the Void Space between them, The Most Important Thing (Saturn) is Confusion (Neptune).  Neptune symbolizes Confusion when viewing the World through Material Eyes, and Clarity when we shift to Spiritual Eyes.  “Ganeshi, please Remove all Obstacles to Opening my Third Eye.”

 Another timely story…

https://alchemicalastrology.wordpress.com/2016/06/21/professionautism/

Love the title – ProfessionAutism.  I read it as Professionalism twice before I noticed the Aut.  In another post she says Pluto is on her Moon – I don’t know of any greater Emotional Challenge.  A perfect time to “hang loose,” but not even that is easy under Pluto-Moon.  “God/Goddess, Creator of All That Is, I Command that Ease and Grace fill my Life.  It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done.  Thank you, God/Goddess. … Show me.”

That’s a simplified form of Theta Healing.  Once you say “Show me,” look to see whether your Vision or other Intuitive Sense shows you bathed in Ease and Grace.  If not, look to see what else you need to Command.  Maybe Trust, or Enough to Eat, or just Breathing.

When the World, or your Community, or just your Household or Camp, operates through Yintegrity, the whole World is different.  People do things when they want to, and when someone resents something not being done, it’s up to them to recognize that it’s their job to do.  Or their job to inspire (not require or bully) someone else to do it, maybe as a group project where participation is of course optional – you would join or not because, in the moment, it’s more fun than doing otherwise.  

The Most Important Thing gets done, even if it’s not what you thought was The Most Important Thing.  Between the Waning Saturn Square to Neptune and the next Initiation, Cultures break down.  The next Neptune-Saturn Initiation isn’t until 2026, six years into the Digital Age.  It’s at the Aries Point – Manifestation into (Feminine) Form.  Aries Creates by Instinct, not by having a picture beforehand of the “finished” product.  Creating and “finishing” are two different Universes, with only accidental intersections.

Here’s a picture of it anyway – it’s not a “finished” picture, but a picture of the Yintegrity process unfolding…

https://cristenrodgers.net/2016/06/23/speak-your-truth-not-your-mind/

I would suggest though, that “The ways in which Other Living Things can speak may also be almost infinite – the truth or a lie, clearly or in riddles, with language or with art.”  We maybe just haven’t heard them yet, till we get our Third Eye – or Ear – Open.  And that Everything is Living.

And, Saturn runs a Gauntlet of Initiations before it gets back to Neptune – Ixion, Pholus, Quaoar, the Galactic Center, Chariklo, Hylonome, Pluto. OR10, and Nessus!  Saturn will be a very different Animal by then, and we will be too.  Sounds like this Gauntlet would be worth a post of its own, eh?

And we didn’t even notice that Saturn was Initiated by the Great Attractor this last February, with an Exposition in May!  The Great Attractor is Headquarters to the Galactic Center – Cosmic HQ.  No wonder it’s been a heavy year so far, as if we haven’t had enough excuses!  We’re being asked to align ourselves with an Energy more Powerful than even Galactic Energy.

Portal 25.1.16 Plus One

January 25, 2016

Great reader comments today…

Thanks for the heads up on what sounds like a fantastic opportunity.   I’m on board!   Got a comment about Rudhyar’s interpretation of An official embassy ball – ‘Group consciousness as it flows at the highest level in cultural exchanges between representatives of the elite of the ruling class.’   An embassy is a small piece of one culture embedded in another.   Intended to represent the highest and the best.  

So if we view ‘Group consciousness as it flows at the highest level in cultural exchanges between representatives of the elite of the ruling class,’ as the people on the planet using consciousness to change…don’t the numbers define them as elite?  And separate?  And if consciousness does determine reality then aren’t they in fact the ‘ruling class?’  It all fits perfectly through the looking glass….”

Brilliant!  Catching my own pessimism on Culture and Huperity!  Thank you!  I’ll have to Witness and Embrace that, and Wonder what my Life will be like when I’m not so cynical about the Future of Hupers, while I Change the Subject and Pay Attention!

Powerful post… I realize how I feel divided between doing my own art for the joy of it vs. wanting to make art that others will ‘respect’ and admire.  The desire to create to make meaningful connection with others is strong, but ultimately seems to be a false flag – it will happen organically if it’s meant to be.  The other is a remnant from childhood, maybe – using my gifts in the hopes of being truly seen and loved for that true being.  Subtle discernments are moving large underpinnings of beliefs...”

I know, the Conventional Wisdom is that we need to dive into all this Modern Marketing Hoopla of the personally-addressed sort that fills my inbox and I seldom read.  Some of the people who I used to respect for their apparent dedication to educating people and Changing the World are resorting to the “Are you sure you want to leave this page” BS that I read as “I don’t care about Changing the World as much as I care about getting your money” – my cynicism again!  They need the money to Change the World!  My main cash client almost didn’t get their contract renewed last month – and I would have been harassing you with some version of the Modern Marketing Hoopla too!  Look at the next comment…

There has been a feeling that today is a big day for putting a whole different side of my life into motion.  There has also been a feel that the entire ship of life is changing direction… And being a ship that was moving really fast, it’s taking a while for it to stop and turn, change direction.  But then all this is a feel, and I come back into my world and there seems no hope for anything shifting or changing..”

So this is what I tell people, and myself.  It (Recognition of our True Selves) “will happen organically if it’s meant to be” AND when we have Let Go of all of our Resistance to Allowing it to happen organically.  We could even say, Recognition of our True Selves will happen when we have Let Go of all of our Resistance to Allowing it to happen organically.

Chiron – which signifies our Ability to turn Despair into Miracles by Witnessing and Embracing our Emotions about Despair and the thoughts that drive them – is in Pisces.  Pisces is about Cleaning Up our Emotional Baggage so we can begin the next Cycle with as little encumbrance as possible.  So Chiron in Pisces – 2010 to 2019, is our opportunity to bring ourselves up out of Despair on a Global scale.  Remember that the worst kind of Despair is “Unconscious Despair,” where we don’t even believe something is Possible, so we don’t even consider the Potential for something to be different than it is.

After 2019 the Digital Age arrives in earnest, once two centuries of Air-Sign Saturn-Jupiter Initiations begin.  Jupiter-Saturn Cycles are the Expand-Focus pump that moves Society forward.  Not “forward” because it’s necessarily progress, “forward” because we’ve invented a one-directional clock.  If “the people on the planet using consciousness to change” indeed become the “ruling class,” then the Digital Age can see the reversal of the Wage Slavery of the Industrial Age, and a great boon can emerge for everyone.  But if the 1% are still the “ruling class” and own all of the machines, then the rest of us will be relegated to scavenging like Rey.  

The key is Discernment.  We need to PIAVA that we learn to Recognize our cynicism and our loss of Control and our loss of Hope quickly when it arises, Witness it, and Embrace ourselves.  “You poor Sweetheart, you really don’t have much faith in Hupers, do you.”  “You poor Sweetheart, you aren’t sure it’s possible to be Truly Seen and loved for that True Being, are you.”  “You poor Sweetheart, you get Discouraged about anything Shifting or Changing, don’t you.”

Saturn, which symbolizes our Focus, is in Sagittarius.  In Sagittarius, The Way Out Is to Let Go.  We did our Saturn-in-Scorpio trudge – 2012-2015, where The Way Out Was Through.  It will be far easier, with Saturn in Sagittarius – 2015-2017, to Discern the advent of Discouragement and step out of it.  Once we get to Saturn in Capricorn, 2017-2020, we’ll be Focused on Rebuilding.  Will be Rebuilding for the 1%, or for the 99%?

Neptune remains in Pisces till 2026.  Neptune can Lose itself in a Sea of Emotion, or soar in Bliss.  Pisces specializes in Emotion.  Soaring in Bliss will be short-lived as long as we haven’t Discerned, Witnessed, and Lovingly Embraced all of our Emotions.  The Buddhist saying is “Into the Water, out through Fire,” symbolizing the Ascent into Bliss as a result of the Descent into Emotion.  But it doesn’t work that way if we get stuck in the Emotion and can’t get out.  Ascension is a lot more likely if we first Learn to Discern and Witness, and then Descend into Emotion.

The Individual Soul is at its most Creative with Uranus in Aries, 2010-2019.  Once Uranus is in Taurus, we’ll be building what we’ve already conceived, and Change will be incremental improvements rather than leaps into the Unknown.  Pluto in Capricorn, 2008-2024, is about “Just Fix It!”  The Social Order will Change a lot when Pluto Transits Aquarius and Neptune moves through Aries, but on what foundation?  We’re really in the Manifestation Stage here for the next several years; our opportunity for Change may never be greater.
