That Guy with the Wings on His Feet

February 19, 2020

As it’s wont to do, planet Mercury turned around and started going Backwards 16 February 2020 (5pm PST).  This will be very difficult for you to verify, since Mercury is too close to the Sun to be seen most of the time, and “Backwards” in this context is kind of metaphorical.  Mercury symbolizes Communication, Awareness, Thought, and Analysis mostly.  Backwards (“Retrograde”) Mercury has a bad rap around travel, but if like the Angels we take travel delays and disruptions Lightly, we can still Fly.

A planet goes Backwards when it wants us to really Pay Attention to some Lesson it has in mind.  It crosses the same zone of the Zodiac thrice, to make sure we don’t Lose the Plot.  The Plot this month is about the Thinking we’ve been doing, and the Conclusions we’ve been drawing, about the way our Culture should work (Mercury thrice crossing the last few Degrees of Aquarius), and how we Respond to this Emotionally (Mercury thrice crossing the first dozen Degrees of Pisces).

Overzealous Emotions cause our Mentality to Misfire.  It’s one thing that some of us are Emotional Thinkers – when we’re Analyzing something, How We Feel about it is one of our most important criteria, and that’s just Who We Are.  But it’s quite another thing when something Triggers our Karmic Judgments and we lose all hope of Neutrality.  Neutrality after all is where we must be if we want to Change or Manifest anything.  For instance, if we try to Create Peace from a position of Anger, all we’re going to get is more Anger.  Trying to Create Peace from a posture of Bliss will probably only promote Denial.

And in the section of the Zodiac that Mercury crosses thrice, there sit a couple of dwarf planets that are likely to Trigger our Karma.  One of these is the symbol for Intrusive Memories (the as-yet-unnamed dwarf planet that we affectionately call “OR10”) which are usually Karmic.  The other stands for Abuse and Privilege (dwarf planet Nessus).  That’s almost always Karmicas well.  The timetable looks something like this…

  • 2 February – Mercury begins its first crossing (at 29 Aquarius)
    • 6 February – Mercury Triggers Intrusive Memories
    • 11 February – Mercury Triggers Abuse and Privilege Issues or Memories
  • 16 February – Mercury turns Backwards (at 13 Pisces)
    • 21 February – Mercury Triggers Abuse and Privilege Issues or Memories
    • 28 February – Mercury Triggers Intrusive Memories
  • 9 March – Mercury goes Forward again (at 29 Aquarius)
    • 22 March – Mercury Triggers Intrusive Memories
    • 29 March – Mercury Triggers Abuse and Privilege Issues or Memories
  • 30 March – Mercury finishes third crossing (at 13 Pisces)

When planets change their Direction, they Slooowww Dowwwn, Stop, and then slowly Accelerate again.  While they are Slowing and Stopping (ie, 16 February and 9 March), their Influence upon us is at its Strongest.

Do you have any record or recollections of what was going on for you around 6 or 11 February, give or take a day or two?  The usual astrological process is that this first crossing raises an Issue or Problem (we refer to this as a “Can-Opener”), which usually puts us into our Victim.  Then the second crossing (the “Exposition”), if we’re Awake and Responsive to it, Teaches us a lot about what’s really going down, and we can begin to see our own Role in it.  By the third crossing (the “Confidence-Builder”), if we were Awake at the second one, the original Issue or Problem recurs, but this time we Realize what’s happening, and we Handle it with Aplomb.

Mercury stutters like this three times a year, so we get a good deal of Practice with it.  Our Journey from Victim to Adept increases our Neutrality a lot, helping us to be more Objective and Effective Problem-Solvers.

If you happen to have a birth (“natal”) planet in the thrice-crossed Zone of a Backwardation, the Cosmic Headmistress is giving you a Special Lesson.  For instance, one reader has their birth planet that means Truth of the Heart (asteroid Aletheia) in the Zone of this Mercury trifecta, and that planet is in a Challenging Relationship (Square) to their birth planet that stands for their Soul (Uranus).  Birth-planet Relationships are with us for our entire Life, so the more Practice we get with them, the better.

So our reader may frequently run into Issues where they feel like the Desires of their Soul, and the Desires of their Heart, are in Conflict.  How can Soul and Heart be in Conflict?  Heart should Serve Soul, and do it Well.  But Karma can intervene and mess things up.  That makes it even more important to Practice with the Energy, and bring it into Consciousness, so they can Notice when the Karmic prompter is reminding them of their Lines, and Frankly, Not Give a Damn about what it is they’re Supposed To do or say.

Our reader’s Heart-Truth planet, with it’s Teasing Relationship with their Soul, is Triggered by Mercury on 4 February, 1 March, and 19 March.  The most important thing to remember about our birth-planet Relationships, is that they’re like a Graduate Seminar.  They aren’t Problems to be Solved, they’re Dramas to be Studied.  We don’t Solve Dramas, we just Learn how to Handle them a little better each time we deal with them.  They have no Clean Edges, they’re always Ragged.

Imagine you’re an fiction writer studying situations where a person’s Heart would lead them in a different direction than their Soul would, so you could write a realistic short story about their Adventures.  With that mindset, after several repetitions of this Pattern in your Life, you could write the script of your next episode of it.  That would probably help immensely to make it Easier for you to Step Out of that Role the next time those circumstances arose, and Enjoy playing the role of someone else in your script, or someone different entirely.

If we Endure our “favorite” Karmic – aka Educational – Drama once more and leave its Edges just a little less Ragged than the last time, then we’ve Succeeded Greatly, and we need to Acknowledge ourself with Celebration.  While we’re “still kickin’,” we’ll probably never know Why our Immortal Soul Chose to Experience a Lifetime with such a Drama in it.  We just have to Accept that it in fact Did, Trust its Wisdom, and try to be a good Student.

The more Conscious we can be about the Dramas hard-wired into our birth charts, the better, but we also have to remember that it’s not about Analysis (even when Mercury is being Compulsively Analytical), it’s about Experience.  We get a little more hip to our Dramas each time we Repeat them, whether we beat ourself up for Stumbling over them again, or Congratulate ourself for being Open to Learning more about them.  Analysis can give us “Book-Larnin’,” but it isn’t nearly multidimensional enough to give us Wisdom.  For that we need Experience.  That’s what Karma is all about – Inertia, Repetition, how to Use the Patterns we have to their Best Advantage, instead of being Victimized by them.

Five Moons Enhanced Creativity

February 16, 2020

The forecast is for Enhanced Creativity on Planet Earth for the next five Revolutions of its Moon (dwarf planet Makemake [Manifestation] goes Out-of-Bounds [Becomes-Strong] at 6am PST 19 February 2020, till 11pm PST 16 July).  Don’t be Surprised by Out-of-this-World Dreams and Visions, and whatever you do, don’t Discount them (dwarf planets Ixion [our-Forbidden-Genius], Chaos [Unlimited-Potential], and Asbolus [Intuition] are already Out-of-Bounds).  Explore what’s Exciting, and worry later about how it might Integrate with the rest of your Life (dwarf planet Ceres [Sustainability] returns In-Bounds [Routine] 10pm PST 18 February).

With its Spotless Sun…

https://spaceweather.com/archive.php?view=1&day=17&month=02&year=2020

…its denizens may end up with their usual Limitations fried by Cosmic Rays, or they may just Transcend them all by Tapping them away between 24 February and 4 March…

https://www.thetappingsolution.com/blog/tapping-world-summit-2020/

Meanwhile, the weather will also continue to be Creative if you’re visiting the neighborhood of Betelgeuse, with the odds of Rebirth by Vaporization at about 10% and climbing…

https://spaceweatherarchive.com/2020/02/16/the-changing-shape-of-betelgeuse/

Here on Earth, our Creativity Enhancement may well allow us to Let Go Of all manner of Karma dealing with Nasty Memories of serious Threats to our Survival and our Sovereignty that we Experienced in Other Lifetimes.

When these Memories arise, it will be Important that we Recognize them as Paper-Tiger Memories, not “Real” Present-Moment or Future-Moment Pictures, and move to our Gratitude that we aren’t stuck in the situation today.  If we manage to Separate our Identity from the Memories, we Diminish the Karma.  If we don’t, we Strengthen it.  Ninety Percent of our “Reality” resides in our Beliefs, and we Do have some degree of Control over that, should we Choose to Accept it.

(Makemake is at 7 Libra, “A woman feeding chickens and protecting them from the hawks,” when it goes Out-of-Bounds.  It’s the Apex of a Diamond Star [Self-Resolving-Challenge], Square to the Nodes [our-Karma-and-Mission], with Mars [the-Nasty-part], dwarf planets Pholus [Lapses-in-Attention-to-Responsibility] and Quaoar [Survival-Instincts], and asteroid Veritas [Factual-Truth] all Conjunct the South Node [Karma].) 

Putting all that together, it’ll be easy to slip into “It’s All My Fault!”  Recognize that when it happens, and Cancel-Neutralize-Upgrade it immediately.  Wouldn’t hurt to Poor-Sweetheart yourself while you’re at it.  (Makemake also Opposes Lilith [Self-Sovereignty-and-Slavery] and Chiron [Despair-and-Healing-Miracles] and is Quincunx [Curiosity] to dwarf planet OR10 [Intrusive-Memories].)  The chart…

(I forgot to draw it in, but Uranus [Soul] Squares dwarf planet Ceres [Sustainability], which recall, has just come back In-Bounds.)  So we’re likely to Feel Ungrounded as these Changes sweep over us.  Let It Be.  Change is always Ungrounding.  If you Feel Dizzy or Unsettled, just lie down for a while, put your Hand on your Solar Plexus (or wherever it wants to go), and Let the Energy Move Through you.  When you get up, Eat something Healthy, especially a little Protein.

And finally, last weekend’s lovely Almost-Super Full Moon as it rose…

 

Vicennial MoonDance

February 3, 2020

We’re entering about six weeks where our Power to Manipulate the Future will be immensely Magnified.  As the Mugwort Deva said in The Findhorn Garden, more or less, “You Hupers shy away from Power, but for us, the more Power we can muster, the more we can Serve God/Goddess.”

As we’ve mentioned, the timing of “mundane” or manifested events on the Planet or in our Internal Experience is often governed by the Moon.  We might have a big astroevent (such as an Initiation or a Station) scheduled for 3pm on the 23rd (of any arbitrary month – this is just an example), but if the Moon crosses (or, eg, Squares, etc) the location of the event at 9am or 6pm (or any other time close by), we’re more likely to Experience the event when the Moon Dances through.

In addition to its Dance from New to Full and back, the Moon has other Cycles.  One of the more Profound of those is its “Out of Bounds” or “OOB” Cycle.  A planet or other astroprocess is said to be OOB when it’s overhead further north or south of the Equator than the Sun ever goes.  The Sun Dances back and forth between 23:27 Degrees North at the Cancer Solstice (Tropic of Cancer or Northern Summer) and 23:27 Degrees South at the Capricorn Solstice (Tropic of Capricorn or Southern Summer).

Some planets and other Heavily Bodies – like the Moon – go further north and south than the Sun, symbolically Illuminating places that would otherwise never “see the [Perpendicular] Light of Day,” or Sunlight from directly overhead.  When the Sun is never overhead, there are places forever in Shadow.  For example, when the Moon goes OOB, Huperfolks find Emotions Lit Up that they didn’t know they had, as their Instincts become more Difficult to Suppress.  Simply because we have less Experience with them, these Emotions can be Difficult to Manage.

Many planets go OOB for a while when they do – for instance, Mars is OOB from 9 February till 2 March 2020.  The Moon though Dances from North Tropic to South Tropic and back every month.  So when the Moon goes OOB, it’s actually OOB for only a few days every two weeks – making our Experience with Moon OOB even more rare.  To top it off, the Moon spends about ten or so years never going OOB at all, then for the following ten or so years it goes OOB every two weeks.

In my Experience, the classic example of Moon OOB was 11 September 2001, often known as “9/11.”  The World-Trade astroevent of the time was easily attributable to Saturn-Pluto, yet the Saturn-Pluto event occurred in early August.  But on 11 September the Moon began one of it’s approximately-decennial OOB spans.  And sure enough, folks got more Emotional.  Not only that, but there were People or Energies that were prepared to Manipulate these unusual Emotions.

Well, it’s been almost twenty years since “9/11,” and next month the Moon again begins one of its vicennial OOB Adventures.  You’ve seen this building up in the Sky.  Tonight the Moon appears to be nearly overhead.  Several months and years ago, it never went nearly as high in the Sky, relative to the southern horizon.  Here’s what it’s up to…

  • On 6 February it goes as far north as 23:15 Degrees.
  • On 19 February it reaches 23:19 Degrees South.
  • On 5 March it turns around at 23:26 North.
  • On 16-17 March it spends from 9pm PST on the 16th till 3pm on the 17th Out of Bounds, reaching as far as 23:32 South.

That’s a big and sudden jump at the Ides of March, from 23:26 to 23:32, and from five hours almost-OOB to eighteen hours OOB.  The Moon’s OOB Adventures increase in extent and duration from there, for about five years, before they slowly recede into another decade or so of “behaving themselves” and leaving the Shadows behind our Unturned Stones.

The OOB Initiation on 11 September 2001 occurred at the North Tropic, while the 16-17 March 2020 OOB begins at the South Tropic.  I have no idea whether that’ll make any difference to anybody we know, though I’ll be looking at the Southern Hemisphere to see if it might.  It’ll be back beginning to Illuminate Deep Shadows in the Northern Hemisphere on April Fool’s Day.  Interesting that the Antichrist has accomplished at the end of this vicennium what Radical Islam tried to do at the beginning, to devastate World Trade.

Considering what’s happening these days between the Demise of the Patriarchy and the Infancy of #MeToo, not to mention the general turmoil in the World’s Political-Economic organization, there will undoubtedly be many Shadows of People or Energies that are Willing and Able to Manipulate these Energies to their own Advantage.  We may as well play along.  I think it would be Wonderful if we Dedicated some time every day, till at least early April, Meditating on and PIAVAing the 5D or Other World that we Want to spend our own Future in.  Along the way we can Tap Out our Yes-Buts, Fears, Hesitations, and Resistances.

If you’re new to this blog, PIAVA means Prayer, Intention, Affirmation, Visualization, Asking, and many variations on those, such as “Feelizing,” Commanding, Expanding, and other Magnetic Creativity Techniques.  See https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/ for more details.

Not that we want to stop in early April.  Since Meditation and other PIAVAs become our major Manifestation Tools in 5D, this would actually be a fabulous Habit to Develop and Cherish.

In the vicennium just past, the major Political-Economic program underway (Jupiter-Saturn Conjunctions in Earth Signs) was deciding what we Wanted to Keep from the preceding two Centuries of the Industrial Era.  We started (or continued) twenty years of “Perpetual War” between Modern Materialism and Ancient Spiritual Tradition.  Toward the end of that twenty years, Uranus entered Taurus, which we can easily interpret as Spirit Entering Matter, or the Reanimation of Nature and the Planet, a prerequisite for Respectful Earth Restoration.

Beginning in December 2020, we will be totally immersed in the Digital Age (Jupiter-Saturn Conjunctions in Air Signs), for most of the two Centuries that follow.  It’s easy to imagine 5G and Surveillance Fascism (Fascism just means that the Governments and the Corporations are in bed together) to be major implements used to Manipulate this MoonDance to Mammon’s Advantage.  Since Neutrality includes Lack of Resistance, we may want to include in our Meditations that we are Transparent to those Energies – they go right through us without snagging on anything, and keep on going.

Wouldn’t hurt to Visualize (or other PIAVA) ourself Transparent to Climate Change and assorted Pandemics, Pestilence, and Famine, (O My), either.  We certainly Endeavor to Avoid contributing to any of those Ancient Cultural Liver Cleansers for sure, but we Imagine being Personally Unafflicted by them.  What if Nero had the right idea after all?  As Mother Theresa demonstrated, Neutrality is a prerequisite for the Compassion that Heals.

Survival or Bust V

December 14, 2019

Anybody notice how the Full Moons have been getting further and further toward overhead in the Northern Hemisphere, and (I assume, not being there to check) getting further and further toward the northern horizon in the Southern Hemisphere?

When a Heavenly Body moves further north than the Tropic of Cancer (23:27° N) and/or further south than the Tropic of Capricorn at (23:27° S) it’s said to be “Out of Bounds” or “OOB.”  Neither the Sun nor Jupiter ever go beyond those boundaries.  For instance, Venus was OOB from mid-November till yesterday (12 December 2019), and Mercury will be OOB between 23 December and 12 January.  We Feel a planet’s Energy more Strongly when it’s OOB.

The Moon has it’s own OOB program.  It goes OOB for a few days every two weeks for about a decade, and then stays “In Bounds” for the next decade or so.  Folks can be more Emotional during Moon OOB periods, like the one from 2001 through 2011.  The Moon started that OOB Decade on 11 September 2001, just about the time the planes hit the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.  The next Moon OOB Decade begins at the Ides of March 2020.  This time it’s the Antichrist that’s attacking World Trade.  The Moon is a quarter of a Degree shy of the Tropic of Cancer as we speak.

♥ And speaking of Survival (which as we’ve said is especially Lit Up all month), today’s news included stories on threats from Above…

Revelation Full Moon and 2020 Part 1

July 14, 2019

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

See the source image

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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