TranceFormation 3

July 3, 2020

Better late than never.  In fact, we’ve always averred that we do Interpretation, not prediction, and since this blog is uncompensated, we often have to give precedence to paying the rent.  Besides, it’s only the Illusion of Linear Time that drives the Calendar.  These astroevents take place outside of Linear Time, and as such they are Timeless.  They’re not even about Learning, they’re about Remembering, as we are already Complete Energy Bodies.  It’s only the Huper Trance that makes us Forget huge portions of our Eternal Infinite Self.  The apparent Sequence of astroevents just helps us Remember Different parts of our Wholeness.

But we didn’t want to leave off the chart of the 29 June 2020 second, “Exposition,” Retrograde Jupiter-Pluto (Expansion-Transformation) Merger (Conjunction)

…because it’s an almost-perfect Self-Resolving Challenge or “Diamond Star” (a Challenging T-Square [the red triangle] combined with the Grace of a Double Trine Bridge [the blue lines] across the other half of the chart, connected by a Finger of the Goddess [the green wedge] pointing to the Focus of the T-Square).  The T-Square says that our Boundaries (asteroid Pallas) will be Challenged (T-Square) by the Necessity (Pluto) that we Expand (Jupiter) our Primary Cultural Trance (Pluto), and by the apparent Contradistinction (Opposition) between our Rebirth (Haumea) and the Persistence of our Forgetting (Eris) – we spoke in the previous post about how the Ego Resists Change.

You can see this Acted Out oh so Clearly on the streets, in the Dance between the Forces of Change (the BLM Protestors) and the Forces Defending the Status Quo (the Conservative Counter-Protestors, the Police Unions, and most of the Governments).  In the 4 July chart of the first, “Can-Opener,” Jupiter-Pluto Merger, the empty half of the chart opposite the Challenge (the red T-Square triangle) contains only (1) Unlimited Potential (dwarf planet Chaos) which is Scary because it’s so Unknown to most of our Consciousness, and (2) Converting Fear to Power (dwarf planet Sedna), which we initially Experience as Fear, till we do our Kegels.

The 29 June Exposition chart is Self-Resolving.  The 4 June Can-Opener chart contains Grace, but it’s Incomplete.  Unfortunately, it’s the 4 June chart that foreshadows the next dozen years.  The primary purpose of the 29 June chart is to help us Learn (Remember) more about the Changes that we’re beginning to put in place (in Linear Time).  In the 29 June chart, Unlimited Potential (Chaos) remains, but it’s augmented by our Intuition (dwarf planet Asbolus) and by our Ability to Choose to End Obsolete Karmic Habits (asteroid Atropos [Ending Patterns Consciously]).  Which means we’ll be more Able to moderate our Fear of the Unknown, for instance by PIAVAing that our Progress be Loving and Gentle.

And, the second foot (asteroid Lachesis [Ability to Choose to Change Habits]) of the green wedge (the Finger of the Goddess) has moved into place to make the Challenge Self-Resolving (a Diamond Star).  In other words, we’re now Graced with new (relative to early June) Skills that Allow us to Manipulate Patterns which previously Victimized us and kept us Frozen in Fear about our Rebirth into the Unlimited.  Consequently, in spite of the fact that you may feel like you Don’t Know What You’re Doing, you are actually Free to Act to Embrace What You’ve Always Wanted.  Your Mind will be very fuzzy about What and Why, but your Intuition will Know without Question.  Trust your Intuition.

The addition that makes the 29 June Self-Resolving Challenge not quite Perfect (as an astrological Configuration, not as an astroevent) is the Galactic Center (Headquarters) at the top of the chart (where it’s more Powerful than it otherwise would be).  It certainly doesn’t detract from the Self-Resolution in the rest of the chart, in fact it adds a whole lot of Grace (a Fire [Spirit] Grand Trine [Dumb-Luck Grace] with two Air [Mentality] Kites [Directed Dumb-Luck Grace], making an almost-Grand Sextile [Yet More Grace]).

The Vacancy in the Grand Sextile (26 Aquarius) – which we could easily argue is the most Important place in the chart, as it makes our Challenge to Expand into the Vacuum not just Self-Resolving, but also very Beneficial – is not occupied by a prominent asteroid or dwarf planet.  If you have a prominent planet there, you are hereby appointed to be our Fearless Leader.  You will have help from two important Stars in that Longitude…

  • Deneb algedi, aka Giedi, the tail of the Capricorn Sea-Goat (Remember that the Constellations have shifted in the Tropical Zodiac, due to the Precession of the Equinoxes, so the Star is in the Constellation Capricorn but the Sign Aquarius).  Bernadette refers to Deneb algedi as (Brady’s Book of Fixed Stars, pp.302-4) “the symbol of the law-giving, justice-oriented god trying to civilize his people…  the star of a person who is a benefic ruler, one who is trying to use wisdom and knowledge to protect and help the people around them.  Mother Teresa of India had two [astrological] contacts with Deneb algedi… this concept of the ancient, protecting god is connected to both her luminaries.”
  • Deneb Adige, the tail of Cygnus the Swan, (op. cit. pp.127-129) “a very subtle star associated with the strength and hostility of the swan, but at the same time holding within its symbolism the mystic, transcendental qualities of shamanistic legends of the creation of the World Egg.  A very good example of this is Mother Teresa… this majestic swan and its symbolism is connected both to how we see Mother Teresa, and to the belief systems and feelings that she lived by.”  “…the need to explore the mystical in the everyday…  …equally the strong fighting bird and the swan-god, the willingness to take the hero’s journey, to undertake the journey of self-awareness” – exactly what we need to Expand our Trance-Re-Formation.

Bernadette also says (p.304) that “Deneb algedi is not a strong star and it needs to be linked to… Libra – for social reform – …before you put too much emphasis on it … it does suggest the desire to help, not by serving but by leading.”  The Completed Grand Sextile does have another corner in Libra, advising that we need to opt for Touching the Jaguar (the Hero’s Journey) and throwing ourself into the Unknowns of our Rebirth (Haumea in 26 Libra).

In other words, forget Cause, Logic, and Excuses, and Trust that, once we get out of Kansas, the Ruby Shoes of our Intuition will Guide us.  All of which gives us two assignments.  How does the third, mid-November, Confidence-Building Jupiter-Pluto Merger relate to the US election?  What does Joe Biden have in Libra?  We’ll save those questions for later while we Focus on our Rebirth.

TranceFormation 2

June 29, 2020

We live in Virtual Reality, without artificial optoelectronic devices, in a Trance so deep that we don’t even know we’re in it.  Like Ken Kesey said, “You can trip out so far that you never get back to know that you left,” and for most of us that Amnesia definitely applies to Life on Earth, starting at our Decision to Incarnate.  Like the fable about the 3-year old who kept asking his parents if he could have a few minutes alone with his newborn sister, and the parents hesitated because they were aware of sibling rivalry.  Finally, they got a baby monitor so they could listen in, and let the 3-year-old have his interview.  What they heard was the 3-year-old asking the newborn to “Remind me what Heaven was like; I’m beginning to forget.”  Many of us Forget, most of the time, that we came here to do a job.  Forget that we’re actually Eternal Consciousness Experimenting with a Physical Body, rather than a Frozen Waffle with a g missing, Stapled to a Body or a Mind.

Most of our Trance is Cultural.  We get a lot of Programming of all sorts, but the basic Trance in our Family of Origin, or other First Circumstances, is the one we’re most motivated to adopt, just so we can Survive relatively efficiently.  In the “Developed” World, some of the deepest elements of that Trance include Linear Time, and Cause-and-Effect.  Try Living without both of those for a day, if you can even Conceive of doing so.  Cause-and-Effect is meaningless without Linear Time.  The planet that symbolizes our Trance is Pluto, and major Pluto astroevents Change the Trance.  When the Trance Changes, it’s not always as extreme as “Either we Change or we Die,” but that’s the basic idea.  Change is Difficult because it really is another Death, but an Ego Death, and “we” (our Ego) fears Ego Death as much as Physical Death, because item #1 in the Ego’s job description is “Keep the Entity Alive.”

Comparing our Lived Experience of December 2019 with our Lived Experience of June 2020, it’s easy to see how the Changes in our basic everyday Trance have been Extreme (this Pluto astroevent includes Saturn-Pluto [Identity], Jupiter-Pluto [“Grow or Wither“], Chariklo-Pluto [Confidence], Pallas-Pluto [Boundaries], and a number of other Big events such as a Decadal Change like Moon Out of Bounds [Emotionality], and longer-term Changes such as Ixion-Pholus-Quaoar [Response to Climate Change]) – and that’s after much of the Shift has been somewhat Remediated.  Make a mental note, so you’ll be more Prepared for the next Plutostorm.  Not to predict what will Change, but to Expect a Big Change so you can Upgrade your Resilience.

We were just about to interpret the 4 April Pluto-Jupiter Initiation “Can-Opener” chart, to help us Understand and Steer the next dozen years, and to help us Grok the current Energy, as we Experience the 29 June Jupiter-Pluto “Exposition” event.  (We defined “Can-Opener” and “Exposition” in the previous post.)  Here’s the 4 April chart again…

The Crux of the chart is the Challenge (T-Square) to Adapt to the World-Wide Compulsive Expansive Transformation (Jupiter-Pluto), or Trance Re-Formation, through Adjusting our Boundaries (asteroid Pallas).  The Root of the Challenge (base of the T-Square) lies in Accepting what we’ve been Denying (dwarf planet Eris) and Finessing the Eggo’s Resistance to Rebirth (dwarf planet Haumea).  The Challenge is not Self-Resolving (not a Diamond Star), but it does feature considerable Grace (a Double Trine Bridge, across the T-Square itself, rather than across the Opposite side of the Zodiac, as occurs in a Diamond Star).  We need a name for this Configuration.  For now I’ll call it what it looks like, a “Highway Bridge.”  Here it’s isolated in the heavy lines…

This Highway Bridge has the same quantity of Grace as a Diamond Star, but it’s not In Balance, it doesn’t fill up the Zodiacal Loop (dwarf planet Chaos would be one foot of a Diamond Star, but Diamond Stars require two).

What’s the Difference between a Highway Bridge and a Diamond Star?

There will be obvious Solutions to the Challenge in a Highway Bridge, but they won’t be Complete, they’ll leave out half the Picture.  When we Soften our Boundaries, they may Let In Energies we don’t Want.  When we Stiffen them, they may Exclude Energies we do Want.  For example.  Whatever Transformations we Allow, they’re likely to need Adjustment later.  We may Allow 98% of a Rebirth, but the other 2% may try to Sabotage our Transformation.  We may Open to 70% of What We’ve Been Denying, but the other 30% may Bedevil us.  A Diamond Star on the other hand is Completely Self-Resolving.  We can screw it up by Lacking Faith and Intervening, but otherwise, we’re Golden.

Returning to the original chart, we see that there are two other Bridges across the troublesome Revelation-Rebirth (Eris-Haumea) Opposition, in addition to the Highway Bridge, across the other side of the chart – a Big Contribution (Trine Bridge [Grace]) by Suspending Disbelief in the Impossible (dwarf planet Chaos [Unlimited Potential]), and an Interesting Contribution (Quincunx Bridge [Curiosity]) that can be made if we Explicitly Deal with our Fear (dwarf planet Sedna [Converting Fear to Power]).  To Manifest the latter, we’ll have to carefully Avoid trying to Understand what we’re Afraid Of (Quincunx) and Deal with our Fear directly as an Emotion, rather than working with our Thoughts about it.  Causes are always Thoughts.

The Highway Bridge itself also contains two pillars of Grace – Sustainability (dwarf planet Ceres [Sustainability and Sustenance]) and the Realization that Headquarters (the Galactic Center [literally, the Black Whole at the Center of the Milky Way]) has issued orders for us to Transcend our Programmed Beliefs (Bee-Zed, aka “514107” or “2015 BZ509,” which has recently received a real name, Ka’epaoka’awela – I think I’ll continue to use “Bee-Zed” [Transcendence]).  When we do that we may be amazed at how Disjointed friends and family can get when we Change.  Backing Down is not an option, however.  It’s not good for your Health to argue with a Black Whole.  Remember that the Easiest way to move toward Sustainability is to Jettison What We Don’t Need – Sustenance is the backside of the Sustainability Coin.  While that can be Scary, it can actually increase our Resilience.

So far so good.

We also Notice that there are two important Vacancies in the chart.  If we added a planet at 26 Cancer we’d Balance the Challenge (Convert the T-Square to a Grand Cross), and if we added a planet at 26 Leo we’d increase the Grace and Ease exponentially (by Completing both the Diamond Star and the Grand Sextile).  If you happen to have natal planets in those Locations, you’ll probably be Living a Life of Leisure for the next ten years.

The Vacancy Opposite Jupiter-Pluto-Pallas is a busy place.  The “Sabian” interpretation of Cancer 26 is “Guests are reading in the library of a luxurious home.”  We hope that means they are Learning their History and Herstory and Karma, so they don’t have to repeat it.

Asteroid Magdalena is there – I’ll wager everyone has different Associations with Magdalena!  The dwarf planet Cyrallus is also there.  Cyrallus was the Centaur married to Hylonome.  He was killed in the melee that followed Herakeles’s Opening of the Sacred Wine, and then Hylonome killed herself with the same spear.  And there are two Fixed Stars there.  Procyon projects Success, but it’s short-lived, and rapid Harvesting of any gains is recommended.  We don’t recommend assigning that one to Black Lives Matter – we can PIAVA long-lived and stable Success for BLM instead.  And Pollux.  He’s the darker twin of the Gemini twins Castor and.  Bernadette, in Brady’s Book of Fixes Stars, p.249, says “you will find yourself embroiled in the more shadowy side of the issues, with the pain or angst of the situation always seeming to be present.”

That’s okay, because we know that Tapping works well for exactly that purpose, to Let Go of the Negative.  When we Tap Out a nagging negative Emotion or Thought or Experience or Scenario, such as “Even though I’m Suffering over this Transformation, I Deeply and Completely Love and Accept Myself,” we Align our Energy Body with the Truth of our Experience.  That Alignment Dispels our Attachment to the Negativity, though we may have to repeat the Tapping sequence several times.  We can also Poor-Sweetheart ourself – “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Suffering over this, aren’t you.”  If we Succeed in Changing the Subject afterwards, that too will dispel our Attachment to the Suffering.

Leo 26 Completes the Grand Sextile (Great Grace) and the Diamond Star (Self-Resolving Challenge)The Star Alphard is there.  It’s the Heart of the Heavenly Serpent.  Bernadette says on pp.151-2 that “Its preferred expression is conscious passion… you are working with very strong feelings and will need to resist striking back in anger.  A better use of the energy is to focus on a subject or a cause to which you can devote your strength and determination” – to avoid manifestations that are “murderous and violent.”  This certainly draws a picture of White Supremacy and Colonialism, and makes an educated suggestion about how to begin to overcome it.

This is a very deep History.  Remember that it was Pope Nicolas V in the 15th Century that declared non-white non-Europeans subhuman and condemned them to “perpetual slavery.”  That was 19 Generations ago, which makes White Supremacy a very Deep Trance, and one that the Antichrist defends daily.  It’s unlikely to Let Go in a week or two.  Leo 26 is “After a heavy storm, a rainbow,” so there’s some hope for progress.

Next we’ll look at the 29 June Jupiter-Pluto Exposition chart.  First, though, a couple of shots of our recent Crescent Moon…

In the second picture, the left side of the Moon is illuminated by what’s called “Earthshine,” Sunlight reflected off the Earth and projected onto the Dark Side of the Moon…

Transformation 1

June 28, 2020

Remember this “Tumultuous Week“? …

That was the first week of April 2020, when Our Willingness to Accept our Forbidden Genius in order to Respond to Climate Change was all Lit Up (Ixion [Forbidden Genius], Pholus [Response or Denial], and Quaoar [Survival Instincts] all Stationary [Strong]).  And of course we were busily Reliving “9/11” (Moon beginning a decade going Out of Bounds for a few days every two weeks, after staying In Bounds for a decade), disguised as a Virus this time around.  And beginning to Recover from (the first decline of?) the fastest “Bear Market” in recorded history, in the US stock market.  It was so busy that we didn’t have time to write about what would otherwise be a Big Deal, the Merging (Conjunction) or the Energy of Expansion (Jupiter) and the Energy of Compulsory Transformation (Pluto).

Here’s the chart of that 4 April 2020 (7:40 pm PDT) Jupiter-Pluto Conjunction in 25 Capricorn…

Why are we thinking about this 3-month-old chart?  Turns out we’re Reliving it, as the Energies of Expansion and Compulsory Transformation are Merging (Retrograde Jupiter Conjunct Retrograde Pluto in 25 Capricorn) for the second time, culminating 29 June (9:30 pm PDT).  As many of you know, when two planets Merge, they often Dance the Three-Step – they cross, then stop and back up to cross a second time, then stop again and then finally cross for a third time (some planets even do the Five-Step or Seven-Step and more).  We have names to distinguish these three crossings from one another.

We call the first crossing the “Can-Opener” because it usually introduces a Problem of some kind.  The Energy of the current Three-Step Dance is about Expanding into Compulsory Transformation.  Well, we definitely saw the Planet as a Whole Expanding into Compulsory Transformation, didn’t we.  You can even see the Sky in Beijing and Los Angeles!  Many of us as individuals Experienced this Transformation as a Problem, all right, and those of us without effective Community still do.  Not to mention those of us who were Challenged directly by the Virus.

We name the second crossing of the Three-Step Dance – the current one – the “Exposition,” because the Problem repeats itself, but this time (with at least the faster, Active planet Retrograde) it unfolds more slowly, giving us the Opportunity to Grok the issue, and make some attempts to Respond to the Problem rather than just Reacting.  The Exposition phase of the Three-Step is when we Learn more about how to handle the Issue.  (In the case of the Five-Step, Seven-Step, and More-Step Dances, all of the crossings except the first one and the final one are multiple Expositions.)

This particular Issue, Expanding into Compulsory Transformation (Jupiter-Pluto), reccurs every 12-13 years, so we do have Experience with it, at least if we’re over 30 (we may not be Trustworthy, but we are Experienced).  If we look back in herstory and history, the last time it occurred was in 2007 – the Derivatives Crash that most folks, following the propaganda of the time, referred to as the “Housing Crisis.”  That tells us that current Transformation events aren’t really about the Virus, as the headlines would have us Believe.  They’re about what John Perkins in Touching the Jaguar calls the Death Economy, often called Predatory Capitalism, or the modern version of Colonialism.

If you haven’t read any of John’s books, now would be an excellent time to start, beginning with Touching the JaguarIf you’re at all curious about any of the Conspiracy Theories around the Virus, it will be very educational.  And you’ll end up Grokking much more of what Expanding into Compulsory Transformation is all about.

We highly recommended this book recently, along with Larry Korn’s One-Straw Revolutionary, but we weren’t explicit about why we recommended them – because they’re the best Expositions of 5D I’ve run across so far.  Michael Roads’s Through the Eyes of Love series goes into more depth, but it’s far beyond the Skillset of many of us, thus easily dismissed as Fantasy by folks who don’t understand much about the Spirit Realms.  Touching the Jaguar and One-Straw Revolutionary may be ambitious, but they’re completely feasible from the 3D Perspective.  And I’ve found another book to join these two – Masanobu Fukuoka’s Planting Seeds in the Desert.

Previous episodes of Expanding into Compulsory Transformation occurred in 1906, 1918, 1931, 1943, 1956, 1968, 1981, and 1994.  Many of those years were indeed significantly Transformative.  In addition to the obvious, we might note that 1918 included the Spanish Flu, 1943 included race riots, and 1981 included the beginning of the AIDS epidemic.  Intriguing that Microsoft Bing chose this evening to put the Empire State Building on it’s headline page, as it was completed in 1931.  On the page it’s illuminated in rainbows for Pride Week in 2014.

The third crossing of the Three-Step Dance is called the “Confidence-Builder” because at that point we re-Experience the Issue but this time we have enough Experience to sail through it.  In this case that will occur in mid-November.  That would be a good Timeline for putting the current Virus behind us, if we’re ever in a position where we have to make a prediction.  With luck, and if enough of us PIAVA it, we may be able to put other current issues behind us as well.

Remember that the Energy comes first and the Physical follows.  The more time we spend Meditating on How we’ll Feel when we’re in 5D, the faster we’ll get there.

This is an Initiation – a Can-Opener of a Merger between two planets (first Conjunction in a Three-Step).  That means that the chart above will define how we will Expand into Compulsory Transformation for the next dozen years.  This Cycle begins at 25 Capricorn, “A store filled with precious Oriental rugs.”  While Oriental rugs are luxury items today, their original use was as large very tightly woven rugs used by desert nomads to keep their tent floors from being overwhelmed by Sand.  So it’s reasonable to Believe we might see politics “Cleaned Up” a bit over the next decade (the Active portion of a 12-year Cycle lasts about 10 years)On the other hand, the desert nomads were terribly Patriarchal.  However, the rugs are displayed in a store – the original use is no more.

The 29 June chart (next post) then will tell us about how we’re Learning about Expanding into Compulsory Transformation here at this Exposition, but the 4 April chart above will tell us about the next dozen years.  So to interpret the next few days, we should start by interpreting the 4 April chart.  The nature of the Initiation of a new astrological Cycle is that the Energy of the new Cycle is Lit Up around the time of the Initiation, but then goes underground for a while (until the Waxing Square, which will occur in mid-May 2023) as those who are heavily invested in the Old Cycle blast us with propaganda about how superior the Energy of the Old Cycle is.

Or rather, in this era where the Capitalists own the media, pretend that the New Cycle doesn’t exist.  Fortunately, there are a few bastions of actual Journalism left that also report on the New Cycle’s Energy.  So, if we look at what’s been happening over the last 3-4 months, what do we see?

  • A bump up in our mortality rate, obviously.
  • Severe debilitation by Virus and by treatment.
  • Governments acting like “Third-World” countries.
  • Minorities banding together to Insist on their Huperity.
  • Remarkable Environmental Recovery even while the Antichrist peels away legal protections by the truckload.
  • Death Capitalism grinding to a halt.
  • Lots of people Threatened with Economic catastrophe.
  • Lots of people Helping one another.
  • Diminished Materialism and Globalization.
  • Massive Confusion as Polarization grows.
  • Resistance to Denial and Prevarication.

What am I leaving out?

We Create our own Reality, so we can pick and choose which of these we want to Expand into the New Cycle, which we’ll then want to Experience Directly as Energy, PIAVAing that we Manifest them for ourself.  You can put Energy into What You Want For Others, but that’s thinner ice.  Even if you know what they say they Want, you don’t want to Compete against their Negative Unconscious Wants by trying to “Fix” their Karma for them – guess who will win that contest.  You’ve got more than enough to do to Revert your own Negative Unconscious Wants!

We’ll need to look to see which of these are Supported by the 4 April chart, and emphasize those.  We’ll look at that tomorrow.  Then we want to look at the 29 June chart and see what it contributes.  Mañana.


June 22, 2020

…from our Heavy Fortnight.  Do we even Remember Who We Were on 1 June?  Ken Kesey used to say, “Sometimes you can trip out so far that you never get back to know that you’ve left.”  It feels like my Life has been pretty Continuous through this, no huge Changes, but several of what appear to be Big Healings that will probably Change the Future a lot.

Our next Big astroevent occurs 22 June 2020 (9pm PDT), and it’s about Confusion (Neptune Stationary in 21 Pisces).  Well, not just Confusion.  To me it symbolizes Material Confusion and Spiritual Clarity.  If Confusion is kind of Exciting for you, you’re Golden.  If it isn’t, make an Effort to Stand Still for it for a while.  In other words, if your automatic Reaction to Confusion is I gotta Figure This Out! then see what happens if you Change that Story to Well, the Wolves aren’t circling just yet, so maybe I can Relax a bit, and then check to see if their Howls are getting closer.  There’s a Big Payoff to being able to Tolerate Confusion without having to Change it.

The Easy way to handle Neptune is just to switch your Perspective from the Material to the Spiritual.  More bills than handy cash?  What could be the Spiritual Teaching involved in that dilemma?  Maybe it’s time to Delegate that whole Issue to the Goddess.  No, you needn’t tell the Landlord to “Get it from the Goddess!”  But you can PIAVA Having Enough, for instance.  Then of course you’d Change the Subject.  While your Attention is diverted, Miracles could happen.  They never have?  There’s always a first time!  When your mind circles back to what’s Confusing you, Tap, or Poor-Sweetheart, or PIAVA yourself again… “You Poor Sweetheart, you can’t get that out of your mind, can you.  It’s stickier than that gum commercial…”

But it’s also important to break any Habits you have about running away from Confusion.  If you’re uncomfortable with Confusion, spend some time being Loving and Gentle with it first, then switch your Perspective to the Spiritual.

The Neptune-Station chart is very straightforward – just a T-Square and a Trine Bridge…

Those are the heavy lines.  We threw in a few extra easy-to-interpret asteroids just to make the chart a little more interesting – they’re connected with the lighter lines.  The Challenge (T-Square, the heavy red triangle) is to Let Go (asteroid Atropos) of all Restrictions on our Intuition (dwarf planet Asbolus).  That way, once we stop Trying to Figure It Out (or Intellectualizing or Anal-yzing it – which Neptune loves to Befuddle), our Intuition is Free to Guide us Directly to a Solution.  If we succeeded in Changing the Subject, our Intuition may even take us there without our Realizing that’s what we’re doing!  We do need an Ego Death (asteroid Nemesis) along the way, but Ego Deaths don’t have to be Difficult – that’s what PIAVAs and Tapping and Poor-Sweethearting do for a living – they make Ego Deaths Effortless.

There’s Grace (the heavy blue lines – a Trine Bridge) involved as well.  Grace is supplied by our Instincts (the Moon).  They work much like our Intuition, but until we get our Anal-ytical mind out of the way, neither works because we aren’t Listening to them.  Next to the Moon is one of those easy-to-interpret asteroids (Atlantis) – this one means don’t reach for a Technological Solution.  You know what happened to Atlantis when they over-Technologized their World.

The second new asteroid, that’s Merged with (Conjunct) Liberating our Intuition (Atropos-Asbolus), is about Love and how to use it (Aphrodite)

You can see the Universe’s sense of humor in the other new asteroids.  The Intuition-Confusion-Ego Death (Atropos/Asbolus-Neptune-Nemesis) Challenge (T-Square) is Completed (converted into a Zodiac-spanning Grand Cross) by the symbol for Arrogance (asteroid Hybris [Hubris]).  The message is that Examination of the Exceptionalism of Homo sapiens sapiens (sic) may be able to move us out of our Addiction to the Anal-ytical and return Respect to our “Animal” Instincts and Intuitions.

The other Cosmic Joke is in the green wedge (Finger of the Goddess) pointing at Neptune – it’s roots are a new asteroid meaning Healing (Panacea), and an asteroid symbolizing the Patriarchy (Zeus) and by extension, Hierarchies of Privilege in general – Racism, Sexism, Misogynism, Religion, Morality – we could go on.  Yes, it will take a Big Ego Death (Nemesis) by the World at large to Heal Inequality and move toward Unity (Neptune).  I’m reading John Perkins’s Touching the Jaguar and Larry Korn’s One-Straw Revolutionary.  Both are so full of Wisdom about the Big Issues that the Planet is facing, that it would be folly to try to quote from them – instead I’ll just highly Recommend them to youalls.  Instead I’ll quote Marilyn Raffaele’s recent Arcturian Wisdom…

“Emotions (energy in motion) that are now expressing outwardly have been alive and well throughout lifetimes but kept hidden often even from the one holding them, through fear. Those receptive are beginning to feel a sense of empowerment not experienced before. This in turn is causing increasingly more individuals to realize that much of what they have been led to believe is false and based in concepts of separation. Hearts and minds are opening to realize that every person is entitled to freedom, equality, and respect regardless of skin color, gender, or station in life.

“You who are already spiritually awake are doing the same work as those on the streets but are doing it through your spiritual realization of truth and by being examples of loving action and words. Both ways reflect the surfacing of old energy ready and needing to be recognized and cleared which will serve to bring a new level of awareness to the collective.

“There will be less fear and more unity as efforts to bring about change continue to unfold. Those filled with hate and violence and who cause wanton destruction are not promoting a higher cause but are simply using the movement as an excuse to act out their own negative personal agenda. Their actions do not help to lift world consciousness, but also cannot stop the expansion of it for the Light is power and reality whereas concepts have nothing to sustain or maintain them other than the belief in them.

“Varying pockets of dense energy formed over time will surface as mankind is ready. At this time it is the energy of slavery and entitlement based in beliefs of separation that is surfacing. Other long held belief systems waiting to be cleared are abundance/finance, gender inequality, health/drugs, food, separation, and organized religion. As these things begin to be seen from a higher level, many will choose to no longer align with them in their present state, bringing about change.”

“Attempting to understand everything with the human mind will always result in half truths, because the human mind is only able to access what is already in the collective. Instead seek answers from within, from Divine Mind and they will come as needed through others, from intuition, from a direct inner voice, or any number of other ways. However, you must understand there are no answers for many of the things you wish to know because energy is forming itself in each now moment which is why we say that you, the people, are creating the world you wish to see.

“Live your awareness by aligning with truth rather than with the fear based speculation and propaganda being promoted by media and some “leaders.” Rest in your heart center as an observer seeing through outer appearances to the reality taking place behind the scenes. When you do this you bring your energy to higher solutions and change rather than to appearances that consist of what is old and finished.

“You may not agree with all change simply because it is difficult to see the finished product while it is still in the process of being created. Change unfolds and evolves as the consciousness forming them unfolds and evolves. Do not expect the changes you hope to see immediately manifest fully formed but know that the process has begun. The energy of earth is becoming increasingly higher and change has begun.

“Many think of change only as it applies to government, religion, health services, education etc. but larger change can only follow individual change so be prepared for change in your personal life as well. When even one person awakens to truth, it adds awareness to the collective for there is only One Consciousness. As the collective evolves, it automatically creates new and higher ways of understanding and doing things.

“Individuals become empowered as they awaken to their Oneness with Source, other people, and all life forms. The result is that as increasingly more people reclaim their power and refuse to accept or align with the disempowering ego actions of others, they begin loving and respecting themselves in a new way. Empowerment is the finger that pushes the first domino of the long ancient line of dominoes that every person accumulates over lifetimes. It has begun.”

“Women in general have had a more difficult time accepting empowerment because of having lived many lifetimes as both men and women during times that gave no credibility, power, respect, or equality to females. Some parts of the world still live this way, and continue to feed this obsolete energy into the collective. Many men and women still carry this energy in cellular memory. Some who have lived lives as abusive men have chosen a female body in this life in order to experience the other side of it.

“The high frequencies of the Divine Feminine are quickly integrating and balancing with the Divine Masculine because mankind is now spiritually ready. More and more women are choosing to live empowered lives free from fear and intimidation and more and more men are feeling free to express their emotions without feeling ‘unmanly.’ Occasionally the pendulum may swing too far one way or the other, but will eventually center because the equal balance of both masculine and feminine energy is Reality.”

We haven’t talked yet about the short green lines (“Unxes,” the name of the Angle that Connects two planets approximately one Sign apart; an Unx is one twelfth of something, called a “Semi-Sextile” by mainstream astrologers, a name that indicates nothing) in this week’s chart…

The short green lines are about Seeing our World from a New Perspective and as a result Breaking Old Patterns (12th Harmonic, the Hanged Man – by the heels so he can look at the World up-side-down).  Notice that there are 10 of the 12 “Unxes” we’d need to Create a “Grand Unx” (12 planets more or less equally spaced around the Zodiac), leaving Vacancies at 7 Sagittarius and 7 Aquarius.  In other words, this week we’re likely to be having Epiphanies and/or Breaking Old Habits around the Relationships between…

  • Realizing that our “Fate” can be Changed and Expanding our Consciousness about what we can Manifest (Stationary asteroid Moira [Fate and Choice] Unx asteroid Juno [Consciousness Expansion] Conjunct Stationary dwarf planet Makemake [Manifestation]).

  • Expanding our Consciousness about what we can Manifest and Recognizing that Obsolete Vows are Limiting us and can be Renounced (Juno-Makemake Unx dwarf planet Orcus [Oath-Breaking]).
  • Reverting Obsolete Vows and Breaking Addictions to Being Victimized by Ill Health (Orcus Unx asteroid Klotho [New Beginnings] Conjunct dwarf planet Varuna [the Life Force]).
  • Breaking Addiction to Ill Health and Limiting Unconscious Beliefs (Klotho-Varuna Unx asteroid Vesta [Unconsious Beliefs]).
  • Limiting Unconscious Beliefs and Newfound Respect for What We Previously Judged (Vesta Unx asteroid Hopi [Respect for All Things] Conjunct Venus [our Values]).
  • Increased Tolerance and Our Connection to our Soul (Hopi-Venus Unx Uranus [Soul]).
  • Our Soul Connection and our Depressive Tendencies (Uranus Unx Chiron [Replacing Despair with Miracles]).
  • Our Depressive Tendencies and our Herstorical Recollections (Chiron Unx dwarf planet Gonggong [Intrusive Memories]).

Whatever natal planets you have at or near 7 Sagittarius and/or 7 Aquarius will Complete the Grand Unx and amp up it’s Power considerably, because while an Unx might allow you to Easily Change an Ancient Self-Sabotaging Habit, a Grand Unx can Change your Life Utterly, by Allowing you to Break a whole chain of Interlinked Self-Sabotaging Patterns and become an Entirely New Person.  Its too early to Notice how Profound our Changes have been, but give it a month or two and we won’t Recognize who we were in May.  If you have no natal planets (or Angles or symbolic points like House Cusps or Arabic Parts) you can still Add the Missing Energies Purposely.  They Energies are…

  • Falling in Love (7 Sagittarius, “Cupid knocks at the door of a Human Heart“).
  • Behaving “Irrationally” Relative to Other People’s Expectations (7 Aquarius, “A Child is seen bring born out of an Egg“).

Only a few Heavies left here…

  • Our Forbidden Genius is Lit Up till at least 19 June 2020 (South Node Conjunct dwarf planet Ixion in 30 Sagittarius).
  • Cancer Solstice, 20 June 2:45 pm PDT (Sun enters Cancer).
  • Moon Out of Bounds, 20 June 9:30 pm PDT to 22 June 8pm PDT.
  • Self-Love Solar Eclipse, 20 June 11:45 pm PDT (Annular “Ring of Fire” Solar Eclipse and New Moon in 1 Cancer Opposite South Node-Ixion and Pholus-Quaoar, and T-Square asteroid Sappho).
  • Confusion till at least 22 June 9pm PDT (Neptune Stationary 21 Pisces).

Plus, in the “background”…

  • Reconsidering our Values till at least 24 June 11:40 pm PDT (Venus Stationary in 6 Gemini).
  • Compulsory Expansion till at least 29 June 11pm PDT (Jupiter Conjunct Pluto in 25 Capricorn).

Of course background can be foreground if you’re backing into it – that is, if you’re in Heavy Resistance to having your Life Expanded (Jupiter-Pluto) or to having your Values turned upside down (Venus Stationary), though we’ve already been through both once already this year, so we aren’t rookies at either.  We can also make it harder on ourself by Trying to Figure Out Why We’re Confused instead of Enjoying it as a Feeling in Its Own Right (Neptune [Material Confusion but Spiritual Clarity] Stationary)If we don’t Intellectualize it, Confusion is the First Stage of Growth in Consciousness.  It’s what happens when the door in the Birdcage of Conceptual Justifications for our Unconscious Limitations that Surrounds our Head starts to Open.

The rest is one big Globular astroevent which may well Focus on Childhood Memories of being Punished for Being Ourself, perhaps even Punished for Being Our Finest Self (South Node-Ixion [Karmic Basis for Getting Our Unique Genius Repressed in the Lifetime]).  It will probably be Emotional (Moon Out of Bounds [Excess Emotionality])If it’s not, it will probably be worth Exploring Why It Isn’t Emotional, as the whole Life-Expansion Thing for you may be about Discovering (Eclipse [Illumination]) that You Didn’t Realize You Were Repressing Certain Emotions (South Node-Ixion) I encourage you to Take On that Exploration Eagerly, though, because the Aim of the process is to Expand your Unconditional Self-Love (T-Square to Sappho [Self-Love]).  If we’re in Resistance to any of this, then background is foreground for sure.

We are All One in the sense that our Emotions and our Physical Body and our Thoughts and our Spirit aren’t Separate “levels” or domains of our Experience, they’re Different Perspectives on our Experience of our Unitary Self.  So Repressed Emotions will very often if not always Manifest as Physical symptoms, Negative Thoughts (such as “OMG, What if I Get the Garudavirus!”), or Spiritual Depression.  This Repression of our Unique Genius (literally, Repression of our SuperPower!) has been Lit Up since at least 1 June (ie, within one Degree of Orb [Sensitivity]).  Our Unitary Self is Wrapped and Tied with the ribbons of Identity and Ego, and it takes an Ego Death to Open it to Growth.  Hence the Resistance – above all the Ego hates Death.

So the Big Opportunity here is to move backwards through, for instance, Physical symptoms, to the underlying Repressed Emotions.  How the Devil do we do that?  Repression includes complete Amnesia.  Suppose for instance that your Chest has been Tight and your Heart a bit jumpy since early June or before…

Lie down and close your eyes.  Take a few deep Breaths.  Put your hands on your Chest (or elsewhere) wherever it’s been Tight (or Painful or…).  Ask yourself, “What am I Feeling?”  Your first Answer will probably be about your Sensations (such as Tightness, or something like that).  If you keep Asking the Question, you’ll eventually get to an Emotional Perspective (such as This is about Control and Avoiding Punishment, or something like that).  PIAVA that your Chest Loosens (or that you’re Pain-Free or…), perhaps with Theta

“God/Goddess, Creator of All That Is, I Command that You Lovingly and Gently Take Over This Task for Me, so My Chest and Heart Can Relax.  It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done.  Thank You, God/Goddess!  Show Me!”

or Tapping, or both…

“Even though my Chest is Tight I Deeply and Completely Love and Accept Myself…”

When I did these, a Giant Heart appeared to erupt out of the center of my Chest.

The Eclipse chart…

An “Annular” Eclipse is a Total Eclipse that occurs when the Moon in its oval orbit is far enough away from the Earth, and hence appearing to be small enough, that it doesn’t completely block the Light of the Sun.  Hence the “Ring of Fire” that surrounds the Moon at maximum Eclipse, not to be Confused with the “Wedding Ring” of a fully Total Solar Eclipse.  There’s an excellent simulation at  In the lower right corner of the video there’s a circle within a circle, like an “o” overprinted on an “O.”  Watch the video once, then click on that symbol and watch it again – there are two equally interesting versions of the simulation.

The Moon’s path is parabolic because, it being the Summer Solstice, the Sun sits on the Tropic of Cancer at its northernmost in its travels.  The Moon went Out of Bounds (meaning it traveled across the Tropic, outbound) two hours earlier.  If you scroll down on the aforementioned website, there are two more videos, named “Eclipse Shadow Path” and “3D Eclipse Animation.”  The ends of the paths are dawn (Africa) and dusk (the Pacific).  On that day the Sun and the Moon will be directly overhead and moving from east to west on the thick red line in this map.  These two paths differ because depending on your location on the Earth you’re looking at their Convergence from different Angles at different Times of day.  It’s a puzzle in four dimensions in spherical geometry!  I’m very glad I’m not responsible for solving those equations!  And a good illustration of how little we can comprehend of 5d

The Revelation of our Repressed Unique Genius (South Node-Ixion) is Merged With (Conjunct) our Need to Respond to All Aspects of our Survival (dwarf planets Pholus [the Need to Respond Comprehensively] and Quaoar [Our Survival Instincts]).  Which is Appropriate, since making Life on our Planet Sustainable again will require All of Us to use our Unique Genius, and the same is true for us as Individuals.  Nobody gets to 5D without their Unique Genius.  And we don’t get to Unconditional Love (Sappho) without having Unconditional Compassion (Eclipse in Cancer [Nurturance]) for our Self and our Lifetime Mission (Eclipse Conjunct North Node [our Mission]).

Meanwhile, The Most Important Thing (Saturn) for our Healing (dwarf planet Varuna [The Life Force]) is that we have Good Boundaries (asteroid Pallas) around our Self-Confidence (dwarf planet Chariklo [Confidence]), Complementing our Quest for Unconditional Self-Love (Sappho).  And a load of Dumb-Luck Blessings (the big blue triangle, a Grand Trine) also Blesses our Health (Varuna) and our Self-Love Quest (Sappho) by adding in our Skill at Converting Fear to Power (dwarf planet Sedna).  Do you Remember how to Convert Fear to Power?  There’s a good summary in our post on Resilience.

There are a few Stones yet to turn in this week’s astroenergy.  For instance, our Awareness around Compassion is heightened the week of 15-19 June 2020, as a primary symbol for Intellectual Awareness is Lit Up in the Sign of Nurturing (Mercury Stationary 17 June 10pm PDT in 15 Cancer).

Compassion has twelve stages, and four of them (in bold italics below) are lit up during June and July.  The twelve stages are…

  • Spontaneous Compassion (0-2½ Degrees of Cancer [Cancer “Duad” of Cancer]).
  • Ego Involvement with Compassion (2½-5° of Cancer [Leo Duad]).
  • Conflicts with our Values (5-7½° Cancer [Virgo Duad]).
  • Compassion and Codependence (7½-10° Cancer [Libra Duad]).
  • Deep Review of our Identity (10-12½° Cancer [Scorpio Duad]).
  • Recommitment to our Values (12½-15° Cancer [Sagittarius Duad]).
  • Adjustment of our Lifestyle (15-17½° Cancer [Capricorn Duad]).
  • Social Compromise (17½-20° Cancer [Aquarius Duad]).
  • Emotional Consequences (20-22½° Cancer [Pisces Duad]).
  • Rebooting Compassion (22½-25° Cancer [Aries Duad]).
  • Justification Phase (25-27½° Cancer [Taurus Duad]).
  • Surrendering Analysis and Experimenting (27½-30° Cancer [Gemini Duad]).

We started down the “bold-italic” path above in early June.  We can see these trends most clearly around our Reactions and Responses to the Coronavirus, to the “Economy” (do we still have food and shelter?), to the Selective Police State with its Obsolete but Deeply Ingrained Patterns of Privilege and Abuse, to Climate Change and Planet-Abuse, and to the extent that we “mind our own business” or fall into the Abyss of Ideology and waste our Life Energy on Emotional Attachment to Concepts, Unexamined Regressions, and Programmed Us-Versus-Thems, as opposed to the Be-Here-Now Realities that reflect 5DNot to mention Big Pictures that Mirror our Fears instead of Small Pictures that Project What We Want.

The timing looks something like this, give or take adjustments for time zones…

  • Confronting Dissonance between our Compassion and our Values, 2-3 June (Mercury enters “Shadow Zone” – the span of its impending Retrogradation, at 6° Cancer).
  • We discover places where our Compassion Conflicts with our Relationships, Encountering Judgment or Noticing Dissonance in our social circle, 4-6 June (7½-10° Cancer).
  • A lot of Soul-Searching over this Dissonance 7-9 June (12½-15° Cancer), evaluating our Yintegrity and our Yangtegrity.
  • Recommitting to our Values – or to our Codependence, or both – until 25 June (as Mercury slooows down, stops, and slowly starts moving “backwards”).

These are Big Opportunities.  5D works when everyone in your Community is in Yintegrity and of course in Neutrality.  (There’s more to it, but basically Yintegrity means you do what you feel like doing moment to moment, Yangtegrity means you do what you said you were going to do.)  We get to see what we React To rather than Respond To – Reaction is Emotional and Habitual and Unexamined, Response is Value-Based, Goal-Aware, and Outcome-Oriented.  We get to see where we tend to Betray our own Values.  We get to Wonder whether our Values themselves need Upgrading.  We get to Ask ourself whether “making a stand” is worth the Hassle – lots and lots of Opportunities to Expand our Consciousness.

And of course the Overarching Theme this week is about Expanding our Consciousness around our Manifestation Skills and Converting our Fate to Choice (dwarf planet Makemake Stationary Conjunct Juno and asteroid Moira Stationary).  If you have a hard time relating this Theme to Reaction versus Response, Value Betrayal, Value Upgrades, and Self-Sovereignty versus Codependence, let me know and we’ll Explore it further.

We next walk through our Compassion-Awareness Gauntlet backwards – Soul-Searching 26-30 June (12½-10 Cancer), Relationship Conflicts 1-4 July (10-7½ Cancer), Compassion-Values Dissonance and Repair 5-18 July (7½-6-7½ Cancer – Mercury goes Direct 12 July in 6 Cancer).  While our first (Direct) trip through the Gauntlet was likely to have been Shocking and Disruptive (we refer to the pre-Stationary-Retrograde portion of the Shadow Period as the “Can-Opener”), the second (Retrograde or “Exposition” phase) trip through it is likely to be Slower, and more Educational than Sensational.  We get a better chance to see what’s going on.

The third and final portion (Direct again – we refer to this third phase as the “Confidence-Builder”) will be something like Relationship Resolution 19-22 July (Libra Duad), Lifestyle Adjustment 23-24 July (Scorpio Duad), and Eliminating What’s No Longer of Service 25-26 July (Sagittarius Duad).

Our next Mercury-Retrograde Awareness-Amplification Shadow Period will be about the Consequences of our Relationships (including our Fantasy Relationships with people we’re unlikely to ever meet, like those with the Antichrist), and span 23 September to 19 November (26 Libra to 12 Scorpio, the Taurus-Gemini Duads of Libra and Scorpio-to-Pisces Duads of Scorpio).  The Fear-and-Loathing portion (Can-Opener) runs through 14 October (Mercury Stationary Retrograde 12 Scorpio), the Think-About-It phase (Exposition or Retrograde portion) lasts till US Election Day 3 November (Mercury Stationary Direct 26 Libra), and the Love-It-or-Hate-It period (Confidence-Builder) is finished 19 November – probably take that long to tally the votes. 

I don’t know yet what the Overarching Theme will be, but it will have something to do with the Life Force (dwarf planet Varuna Stationary 4 November in 6 Leo) and Respect for All Things (asteroid Hopi Stationary 7 November in 26 Cancer)We need to Remember that the Future is not Created yet, and that the Future Flows from the Energy that All Conscious Entities, including the Mother Planet, Project into the Present.  We can do our part by PIAVAing and Meditating on the Resurrection of the Life Force and of Respect for All Things, rather than greater Suppression of them.  The more you can Forget about Mechanisms and Focus on Outcomes, and the more you can Focus on What You Want, Locally, the more Power your Contribution will have.

If you can’t Break your Addiction to a Belief that we are under the Control of the Big Picture (Politics, Economy, Global and National Trends, Global Warming, etc.) that the Toxic Media feeds us, do this instead – PIAVA that you and your Local Community have the Freedom to Manifest Your Own Reality, with as many Ds as you’d like.  And then Do it.  We don’t need to drag an Unwilling World into our Reality in order to Manifest What We Want.  That’s not about Selfishness, it’s about Free Will (theirs) and Readiness (ours – their Readiness is up to them, not you).

The 1% have already been doing this for forty years, some far longer.  If their Motive has been Fear or Greed, that’s their Problem and their Karma, not yours.  Don’t Condemn them, Emulate them, but do so within the framework of your own Values and Desires.  We need to Consider that our Displeasure with them might actually be Envy.  That would be a more Honest Motive on our part than a Control Trip.

Anybody remember the Yin Gate Configuration?  There’s a picture of one isolated in the chart in the Edges 5 post.  Did you Recognize the Yin Gate in this week’s chart…

It’s the big blue rectangle in the middle of the chart (Uranus to Orcus to Moira to Gonggong and back to Uranus), with a big red asterisk through it, and a green “X” in each half.  The Yin Gate symbolizes a Mystery School, informing us that the central Opposition (Juno-Makemake Opposite Chiron) is deeper than our Left Brain is capable of Grokking.  The “Left-Brain” interpretation of this Opposition is that in order to Expand our Consciousness (Juno) of our Manifestation Skills (Makemake), we need to Balance the Relationship between Being Present with our Discouragement, and Creating Miracles (Chiron).

Remember Poor-Sweethearting?  We move from Discouragement to Miracles by first, Empathizing with our Discouragement, and second, Changing the Subject.  After we Acknowledge our Emotions, if we don’t Divert our Attention from the Discouragement, we’ll continually Cycle Through the Thoughts that led to Discouragement, and nothing will Change.  We could also Tap Out our Discouragement.  To Tap Out an Emotion, we Acknowledge it – “Even though I Feel Discouraged, I Deeply and Completely Love and Accept Myself…”  If we’re successful at Tapping it Out, then we’ll be left Feeling Neutral or “Better,” but it’s still Important to then Divert our Attention from the Content of what Discouraged us.  We won’t Encounter Miracles until our Left Brain has forgotten completely about the Issue that Discouraged us.

That’s the Logical (Left-Brain) Process involved in using the Power of Discouragement or Despair to help us Manifest our Goals.  As with any PIAVA, it’s critical to Avoid Thinking about Elephants, er, Mechanism.  When you’re trying to PIAVA something you’ve never Created before, you’ve probably already imagined All Possible Mechanisms to make it happen, and rejected them as unworkable.  In fact you’ve probably already tried many of them!  To PIAVA something we’ve never Manifested in the Current Lifetime, we need to have 100% of our Attention on the Outcome we Want, and 0% of our Attention on Mechanisms that might make it Happen.  Successful PIAVAs will always arrive via Unknown Mechanisms.

That’s the interpretation of the Contradistinction (Opposition) between Expanding our Consciousness around Manifestation, and Creating Miracles (Juno-Makemake Opposite Chiron).  Remember that Oppositions are Dualisms, while the Universe is Multifarious and Unitary.  Oppositions can never describe Reality, they can only describe our Thinking about Reality.  The Map versus the Territory sort of thing.  Language traps us into Confusing the two.  However, Confusion is the First Step in Expansion of Consciousness, so image how we could Expand if we Learned to use Language in that way!!

Even though some of those notions may Open Doors for you, we’re basically still talking Logic – if this then that.  The nature of a Yin Gate Mystery School is that it Transcends Logic.  To Engage a Yin Gate we have to be Open to Paradox.  We have to Embrace Cognitive Dissonance.  Cognitive Dissonance is when we have two Beliefs that Conflict with one another.  Take our Addiction to Sugar, for instance, or to anything else that we Believe isn’t particularly “Good For Us.”  If you never Indulge in anything that isn’t Good For You, you need to Loosen Up – you aren’t even Living in two dimensions, you’re Living in one.  Remember that Field that Rumi wanted to meet us in?

We have an Identity that really Enjoys our “Vice,” and an Separate Identity that Strives to keep it under Control, and we Alternate between wearing those two Identities because, unless we’re Enlightened or Catholic, we can’t maintain both Identities at the same time – it just puts us on a Helicopter Trip, where we’re going ’round and ’round, ceaselessly arguing with ourself.  “It can’t be so Bad if it’s so tasty!”  “Have I told you about Diabetes?”  We’re in trouble before we start, because we’re Postulating that Joy isn’t Good For Us, which is ridiculous.  We’re probably also swimming in Guilt, which isn’t Good For Us.   We have to Introduce those two Identities to each other, so they can talk.  Not so one can Win the “Battle,” but so they can both see what the Other Wants.

But we’re still talking about what the Left Brain can Understand.  The Yin Gate Asks us to go Beyond that.  Can we even conceive that such a Space Exists?  We have to PIAVA it.  Here’s part of Larry Korn’s attempt to describe one possibility (One-Straw Revolutionary: the Philosophy and Work of Masanobu Fukuoka, pp.22-23)…

“Natural farming sees the world as a seamless, indivisible whole.  This perception arises without conscious effort when the world is experienced without intellectual interpretation.  Mr. Fukuoka referred to this as non-discriminating awareness.  Conventional perception, or discriminating understanding, sees the world as a collection of discrete parts.  The individual is the observer, and the world is that which is being observed.  It is a willful, intellectual process, which results in a fragmented and incomplete perspective.

“Here’s another way to look at it.  The world is completely interconnected, flowing and unfolding within the present moment.  It has no intrinsic qualities, it simply is.  People, in their attempt to organize experience into a logical framework, break up this unity by seeing the trees as distinct from the shrubs, insects, minerals, and other things.  These elements are further subdivided into types of trees, shrubs, insects, minerals, and other things, and they are all given names.

“Then concepts such as up and down, east and west, large and small, fast and slow, and self and other are added.  Finally, values such as strong and weak, good and bad, beautiful and ugly, and primitive and civilized are also included.  Before you know it, people have created an entirely new reality known only to them.  In nature, none of these things exists.  The is the way people have set themselves apart from and in opposition to the natural world.  Today almost everyone relies on intellectual understanding to interpret and get along in the world.  Before modern culture arose, no one did.”

June 14, 2020

The chart below, for the third week of June 2020, also features a Self-Resolving Hassle to Expanding our Consciousness of our Manifestation Skills, particularly in our Relationships (Juno-Makemake T-Square, in Libra), by (the feet of the Finger of the Goddess are…) Opening to our Emotional Intrusive Memories (Gonggong, aka OR10, in Pisces) and Opening the Ego to the Descent of our Soul into Flesh (Uranus in Taurus).

Which leaves one corner of the Grand Cross as a Non-Self-Resolving Hassle, the Hassle to our Limiting Unconscious Beliefs about Original Blessing (asteroid Vesta [Limiting Beliefs] in Cancer [Compassion]).  We were Pogromed into Original Sin, so we can’t Expect to Reprogram ourself into Original Blessing overnight.  without Self-Resolution, this would be the place where Difficulty arises.  But then, our Unconscious Limiting Beliefs always are the place where Difficulty arises, aren’t they, Disallowing Miracles as they do.  Miracles happen when the Paradigm Changes, and it’s those Beliefs that Define and Protect the Existing Paradigm.


The Non-Self-Resolving Hassle to our Limiting Unconscious Beliefs about Original Blessing (asteroid Vesta in Cancer) and the Self-Resolving Hassle to our Practical Necessity to Be Responsive to our Survival Instincts (Pholus-Quaoar in Capricorn) are both also Graced by being two of the six corners of what astrologers call a “Grand Sextile” (six planets more or less equally spaced around the Zodiac).  That’s the big blue hexagram around the outside of the chart…

The short blue lines connect planets that are two Signs apart (Sextile), and they’re usually interpreted as Grace, once we have taken the First Step.  When there are six planets roughly two Signs apart all the way ’round the Zodiacal Loop, astrologers call it a “Grand Sextile” and consider it extremely Fortuitous.  While we usually interpret the Challenges and Hassles first because they’re what grab our Attention first, the Grand Sextile is actually more Important than the Grand Cross we’ve already dissected, if for no other reason that a Grand Sextile is less common.  But mostly, a Grand Sextile has more Grace than a Grand Cross has Hassle.

And as you can see, a Grand Sextile has two “Grand Trines” (the big blue triangles) embedded in it.  A “Trine” (the long blue lines) is the Angle between two planets that are four Signs apart, and it means Dumb-Luck Blessings.  It provides Blessings so big that it’s easily turned into Arrogance, if a person Notices that they’re so much better at something than other people, and their Ego gets inflated as a result.  As one gets older, one usually Notices that Different people have Different natural Skillsets, and everyone is Outstanding at Something, so Arrogance may be replaced with an Appreciation for Teamwork.  If one gets old enough, one can realize that it’s Ridiculous to Attach the Ego to Anything.

So those big Grand Trines means that the Energy Flows are Effortlessly Collaborative between our Unconscious Beliefs (Vesta), our Intrusive Memories (Gonggong), and our Recognition that we can Change our Karma just by Choosing to Respond Differently this time (Moira).  These planets are all in Water Signs (Cancer, Pisces, Scorpio), making for Collaborative Emotions.

The Energy Flows are also Effortlessly Collaborative between our Need to Respond to our Survival Instincts (Pholus-Quaoar), our Descending Soul (Uranus), and our Willingness to Celebrate Reverting the Obsolete Oaths that Created our Karma (Orcus).  These are all Earth Signs (Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo), meaning that What We’re Manifesting into Form may be Effortless.  Bear in mind that, whenever we’re PIAVAing anything but aren’t Ready to Receive it, we’ll Manifest an Illustration of what else we need to Let Go Of in order to finish getting Ready.  That can be a Puzzle, but in a Grand Sextile, Breaking the Riddle should be Easy.

Each of the planets in the Grand Sextile will Collaborate Readily with its two neigbors.  For instance, Moira (Fate without Consciousness, Choice with), which is Lit Up (Stationary) 15 June (3am PDT), should Play Nice with both Orcus (Pattern-Breaking) and Pholus-Quaoar (Responding to our Survival Instincts).

June 14, 2020

Let’s keep that chart handy…

In the previous post we talked about what most astrologers would probably consider the Main Event, the “Grand Cross” (red cross in a square red box – it’s the red lines connecting Vesta to Juno-Makemake to Pholus-Quaoar to Chiron and back to Vesta).  We mentioned that “a Grand Cross is four back-to-back Hassles (T-Squares – the T-Squares are the red triangles) that Complement one another.”  But we didn’t talk about the “Diamond Stars.”  A Diamond Star converts a T-Square from a Hassle to a Self-Resolving Hassle.  It’s still a Hassle, but if we’re Patient and Trusting, it works out on its own.  Not only that, but if we’re Conscious about what’s going on, we can Learn from it how to deal with Future Hassles that are similar.

Of course a Self-Resolving Hassle can be like Karma – we see a familiar Bummer Pattern Appearing to start, and we immediately jump to the worst-case scenario – after all, we’re very familiar with our Karmic Patterns!    But Karma is a Paper Tiger – most of what we consider to be Bad Karma is the Universe Mirroring our inappropriate Reactions to Stimuli that seem familiar but really aren’t.  Karma is a form of PTSD.  In the middle of the night our wife’s snoring reminds our sleeping brain of gunfire, and by the time we wake up we’re trying to strangle her.  If we wake up in time.  Some haven’t.  It’s the same with Karma.  Someone makes a snide or even innocent remark and it sounds just like that time when those thugs mugged us, and by the time we “wake up,” if we ever do, we’re in the middle of a life-or-death fight.  You can bet that many of those violent cops are Living Out PTSD from Iraq or Afghanistan, and never waking up.

So it does take Awareness of what Triggers our Karmic Bummers, and Patience and Trust to wait to see what develops after the Trigger, rather than shooting first and Answering Questions later.  There’s a picture of an isolated Self-Resolving Challenge (Diamond Star) in the Waking Up II post – they may be hard to spot in the current chart because there’s so much else going on (A Diamond Star is a red triangle [T-Square] that points to the same planet as a green wedge [Finger of the Goddess]  – the Chiron Diamond Star is an example in the current chart).

So in this chart our Personal Recognition of our own Power to Create Miracles (Chiron) is a Self-Resolving Hassle.  When this Recognition is lacking, what we Experience is Discouragement, Inadequacy, or Despair (that’s how the “Unhealable Healer” Chiron introduces itself).  That occurs between the place where the Ego sees that it’s incapable of handling a Project, and the place where the Ego Gives it Over to a Higher Power.  If we’re Conscious that the-place-where-the-Ego-sees-that-it’s-incapable-of-handling-a-Project is a Point of Power, we can Act to Create Miracles (that’s what Chiron does for a living, because Unhealable or not, Chiron is still a Healer), for instance with a Poor-Sweetheart.  A Miracle is something that was impossible when we were Living in the previous Paradigm – like the old Xerox ad with the Monk and the manuscript.

The red triangle (T-Square) in the chart describes the Hassle, while the green wedge illustrates the Self-Resolution.  The Hassle here is between the Security of our Ego’s Nurturing Relationship with our Unconscious Limitations (asteroid Vesta in Cancer) versus the Practical Necessity to Be Responsive to our Survival Instincts rather than pushing them out of “sight” because we see the Threats as too far beyond our Span of Control (Pholus-Quaoar in Capricorn)

The green lines (Finger of the Goddess) point to the tools that make the Hassle Self-Resolving – if we have the Awareness, Patience, and Trust to Allow Resolution to unfold on its own without Egoic Interference – include Sufficiently Deep (Scorpio) Consciousness about our Karma to be able to Substitute Choice for Habit (asteroid Moira) and the Awareness that Ego Death (Virgo) is Necessary to Break the Ancient Forgotten Oaths that were the Origin of our Karma (dwarf planet Orcus).  Remember that Karma is not Retribution, it’s Inertia.

We need the Awareness, Patience, and Trust-to-Allow-Resolution-to-unfold-on-its-own-without-Egoic-Interference because the green lines represent neither Action nor Grace, but Curiosity (Quincunxes).  Our Attitude needs to be “I Wonder how this soap opera will turn out” (or other PIAVA) not “What do I need to do about this.”  The Self-Resolution arises because of the “Bowl of Grace” [double Trine Bridges] that are formed by the feet of the green wedge {Finger of the Goddess].  The Bowl of Grace is sketched out by the blue lines [Trines and Sextiles, symbolizing Grace] connecting both Vesta and Pholus-Quaoar with both Moira and Orcus.

This chart also features a Self-Resolving Hassle to our Practical Necessity to Be Responsive to our Survival Instincts rather than pushing them out of “sight” because we see the Threats as too far beyond our Span of Control (Pholus-Quaoar in Capricorn), by Allowing Revision of our Values to Include Respect for All Things (Venus [Values] and asteroid Hopi [Respect] in Gemini [Everything]) and a Reboot of our Orientation to Health and the Life Force (asteroid Klotho [Rebirth] and Varuna [the Life Force] in Leo [Mastery]).  “By Coincidence” a Reader sent me this half-hour video this morning, an interview with microbiologist-virologist-MD Zach Bush that actually Reboots our Orientation to Health and the Life Force while Encouraging our Respect for All Things, and Promoting Regenerative Agriculture as a Bonus…

It’s the Most Educational and Integrational half hour I’ve ever spent in my many years, and I’m not sure if this video will continue to be available free after 9pm PDT 14 June 2020, so I highly recommend that you watch it, today.  You’ll actually want to reserve time to watch it several times, because it moves fast and covers the Universe.  Just as a for-instance, the Perspective that Dr. Bush presents means that it’s not the oft-quoted dis-eases that make one most Vulnerable to the Colossalvirus, it’s the pharmaceuticals that are prescribed for these dis-eases that make one most Vulnerable!
