Rebirth III

January 25, 2021

Brenda Hoffman has today what sounds to me like a worthy suggestion. Rebirth indeed…

https://lifetapestrycreations.wordpress.com/2021/01/25/stop-planning-your-future/.

“Many of you are biding time until this or that happens. Expecting that you will be happy once that event occurs. Yet, when that event becomes a reality, you look forward to the next event and the next. That is not to say you should not dream about your future, but instead, focusing on the future negates your life minute by minute.

“That last statement is not new or even that memorable. What is memorable is you are evolving so rapidly that what you dream of will have little meaning when that future arrives.

“In your 3D past, your dreams were somewhat expected given the parameters of your world. Leaving home, obtaining employment, securing a romantic relationship, finding a comfortable home, travel, other forms of entertainment, retirement, and death. Of course, dreams were somewhat different for the ends of the economic layers of your society, but all in all, those dreams were established at a young age and continued throughout your 3D life.

“You are no longer on a straight trajectory of expectations.

“You are a new being shifting daily. So are your dreams and expectations. To dream of what could be tomorrow instead of enjoying today is wasting your life.

“Nothing is or will be as it was. Allow yourself the freedom to be minute by minute.  The items you now wish for may not have validity for you tomorrow.

“You are a new being in a new earth. Stop wasting your time wishing for a specific future.

“What is happening now is similar to when you were a youngster – deciding one day you wanted to be a ballerina, the next a doctor, the next a cowgirl, or a fireman. Your parents humored you and allowed you to pretend such was going to happen. Yet, when you were old enough to fully understand your interests, you decided to become a mechanical engineer – something you did not know existed when you were young.

“So it is now. You are just beginning to understand who you are. There are no books or other materials that can point you in your beyond 3D maturity for you are evolving. And that which you decide once you achieve your beyond-3D maturity might not yet be invented or available.

“You forerunners are creating anew, including yourselves. In 2020, you built your foundation. Now, you are building your structure without books, building plans, or any source of outside knowledge. Your new structure is within you.

“At the same time, that which is within you is evolving rapidly. So what you dream of today will be outdated by next week. There is no need to pine for something you wish for in the future. Any more than you did as a youngster when your tutu was lost, only to discover that your policeman outfit was even more fun to wear.

“Many of you are perhaps wondering how we can place you in the youngster category once again when we have informed you of your new you maturity on several occasions. Such is so for an obvious reason. As you accept more energies, you continue to evolve in ways you do not yet understand. Perhaps the best way to understand that concept is to remember you were considered an adult at 21 even though your adult interests and achievements shifted dramatically in the ensuing decades. So it is now.

“You have no framework to understand how you might differ today from next month. Your only clue is what interests you today. Which is similar to most children’s approach. When a youngster wakes up, they do not have a day planner – at least in earlier generations. He or she just moves as their interests take them. Perhaps a bike ride, playing with dolls, running to a neighbors house, or a game of softball. It does not matter for children fill their days with what is interesting without much thought about the next day.

“So it is for you now. What interests you? And again, “who are you?” Not, “who are you becoming? or who do you want to be?” but “who are you this minute, this hour, this day?”

“Your future will find itself.

“If you attempt to put yourself in a box of rightness by negating the day and wishing for your future, you will lose your childlike sparkle of interest and joy. Of finding or creating the new. Of becoming yourself without the shoulds and interests of others.”

Rebirth II

January 24, 2021

We mentioned in the last post, “Rebirth is our next big Station event, as dwarf planet Haumea, named after Pele’s Hawaiian Fertility-Goddess Daughter, Stands Still in the Sky at 10:45 am PST 26 January 2021, in 29 Libra. We’re already immersed in its Energy” and “It may be a Help to [to replace olde Karma with new Patterns] while asteroid Klotho is lit up, such as this week or the week of 15 February, as that should make it much easier to Begin a New and Better Pattern to replace the olde Karmic one.” We recommend this week because the Haumea Station Merges with (Conjoins) Klotho.

A process we recommended in that post for Replacing olde Karma was… “Consciousness is our Get Out of Fate Free card. Well, almost Free. We have to not only bring our Fate or Karma into Consciousness, but then we have to Notice when it begins to recur, Choose to Do or Invite something different, and then Repeat many times till it becomes the Dominant Habit.” And of course before we do that we need to Own our Karma. If we’re still a Victim to our Karma, still Blaming it on someone else or the Universe or some Curse, we’ve at least Identified our Karma, but we haven’t Realized that this is a Free-Will Planet, and therefore that the only person Responsible for our Karma is ultimately us.

And our Karma does derive from a Curse, a self-administered Curse. We Initiate Karma with a Decision or Vow or Oath or Promise that Limits our Freedom. When circumstances Change and that Decision is no longer useful to us, we may not remember that it was Us who made the Choice, especially if a Lifetime or two has elapsed between the Decision and the new circumstances. Once a Choice has become cast in Stone, it may be difficult to sweet-talk it into returning to Clay. If we’ve Owned it and persistently Worked to Replace it and it still follows us around like a Puppy, we may need a Soul Retrieval or other Shamanic Intervention, a big Ego Death, or even a New Lifetime to help find it a new home.

There’s no sense in which this is about Blame. In many cases, our Original Choice was the only one we had. Depending on our Birth Order, in much of European History we may have had to Choose between Starvation, Banditry, and Pledging Fealty to the Duke or to a Monastic Order. And seldom through Herstory does any Religion espouse the Inclusiveness which I was taught that Christ recommended. With the possible exception of Buddhism, Religions have been mostly Us-Versus-Them institutions. Once we Allow ourselves to be Taught Us-Versus-Them, it becomes a self-fulfilling prophesy and it becomes increasingly difficult to even find a Reason to not consider it Good Karma.

The other critical issue to remember around Karma is that it’s only our own Karma that concerns us. Once we get into They Have to Change territory, we’re Lost. Yes, it’s the Ego’s natural Duty to Protect us from others who would Harm us, but the Urge for them to Change is always a Projection of our closet Unhappiness with ourself. We need to be Unconditionally Loving with all of our Projections, but we also need to withdraw those tentacles and apply the suction to our own Integrity. Nothing Changes till we Accept it Unconditionally, but that doesn’t mean we don’t want to Change it.

The Stationary Haumea and it’s mate Klotho have only one Stressful Angle, an Isolated Square or Challenge (the red line), from asteroid Moira, from Mother Fate Herself. Note that Fate is Feminine, as it Connects people. The idea that Anything is inherently Good or Bad is an obvious Either/Or, tautologically a property of the Observing Dualistic Mind and not a property of the Observed Thing. Every bit of our Fate – Karma – is a fantastic Skill. We just need to be able to Choose Otherwise when Otherwise would be more appropriate to the task. The only negative about Fate is that it’s Frozen and needs to be Thawed. When we’re first Learning to Unlearn a Karmic “Skill,” we Reject it entirely because we need to Clear Space for something else. Once we’ve Melted the hardwired Connection and replaced Reacting with Responding, we can begin to appreciate it for the Skill that it is and use it – when it’s appropriate.

The Haumea Station chart…

…does have one Major Challenge (T-Square, the red triangle). What a “coincidence” that the focus of that T-Square is none other than asteroid Karma. As our Chief Asteroid Officer used to say, “You can’t make this stuff up.” The base of the T-Square is even more “coincidental” – asteroid Nemesis (Converting Guilt to Ego Death) and dwarf planet Sedna (Converting Fear to Power), or, before we Heal the Wounds, Guilt and Fear. In other words, it’s our Karmic Guilt and Fear that are our Greatest Opportunity to Replace. The Sedna story also contains significant threads of Anger, Intimidation, and Abuse of Power. Come to think of it, it’ll be a good time to work on Healing our PTSD from the last four years.

The core Configuration in the Haumea Station chart is a Square Fez – a trapezoid with Square (red, 3 Signs) sides, a Trine (blue, 4 Signs) bottom, and a Sextile (blue, 2 Signs) top (it’s on its side here, with its top to the left). A Square Fez is composed of two Major Tricolors and two Minor Tricolors. A Tricolor combines Stress (red, Square), Grace (blue, Trine or Sextile), and Curiosity (green, Quincunx). In a Tricolor we Liberate the Grace from the Stress by Failing to Anal-yze the Confusion inherent in the Curiosity. For instance, if we can leave the relationships between Fear (Sedna) and Rebirth (Haumea-Klotho), and between Fate (Moira) and Karma (Karma) as Mysteries instead of Analyzing them, we Liberate the Grace between Fate and Fear and between Karma and Rebirth, thereby avoiding the Stress that would Otherwise prevail between Fate and Rebirth and between Fear and Karma. Easy, eh?

In a word (or several), in this blog we’ve been considering Fate and Karma to be more or less synonymous. But this chart tells us that, at least for this week, we need to consider the concepts and Realities of Fate and Karma to have Subtle and Occult (which means Hidden) Differences in multidimensional Reality. Being limited by our Intellect to two Dimensions, we just don’t know, other than through our Intuition, what else may Complicate their Relationship. We can Solicit our Intuition by PIAVAingPraying, Intending, Asking, Visualizing, Affirming, or any of many other forms of Magnetic Manifestation that didn’t make it into the acronym (visit the link for more).

For instance, we might request, “Great Spirit, please download Important Subtle and Occult Information to me about the Mysterious Relationship between Fate and Karma.” Then we’d have to Change the Subject and wait for the Information to download while we have our Attention focused on something else. If we don’t Change the Subject, our existing Paradigm will constrain the Information we might Receive. This Information would be relevant for us alone, and only in the current situation. But it would Allow us to Replace the potential Stresses (between Fear and Karma and between Rebirth and Fate) with the Graces embedded in the Fez (between Fear and Fate and between Karma and Rebirth).

The chart also informs us that there’s a Subtle and Hidden Relationship (Quincunx) between Fear and Rebirth that we may not Grok. We have to Avoid “Left-Braining” that, and PIAVA that our “Right Brain” pick up the Information, maybe with something like “God/Goddess, Creator of All Things, I Command that I Experience the Deep Mysteries in the Multidimensional and Unitary Relationship between Rebirth and Fear!” After a Command like that we’d probably want to go into Meditation.

Rebirth

January 23, 2021

is our next big Station event, as dwarf planet Haumea, named after Pele’s Hawaiian Fertility-Goddess Daughter, Stands Still in the Sky at 10:45 am PST 26 January 2021, in 29 Libra. We’re already immersed in its Energy. Unless you think like a Rock, or spend most of your time in Fire Signs, I suppose Haumea could seem like a Violent Rebirth, especially if your house gets in the way. It certainly Violates the Ego, usually emerging in the wake of its Annihilation. That’s almost always a positive development though, well worth the labor pains.

Before we get there however, we have a bunch of Sign Changes and other minutiae to Entertain us…

🌅 Asteroid Klotho is also about Rebirth, as it’s the Greek Goddess of Fate after whom cloth was named. She “cut the cloth” from which our Fate was sewn. Consciousness is our Get Out of Fate Free card. Well, almost Free. We have to not only bring our Fate or Karma into Consciousness, but then we have to Notice when it begins to recur, Choose to Do or Invite something different, and then Repeat many times till it becomes the Dominant Habit. It may be a Help to do this while Klotho is lit up, such as this week or the week of 15 February, as that should make it much easier to Begin a New and Better Pattern to replace the olde Karmic one.

Klotho moved into Scorpio on 19 January, though it turns Retrograde 19 February and backs into Libra again in March. It won’t return to Scorpio till September, and then it hurries through, moving into Sagittarius in November. Klotho in Libra increases the odds of making Connections with new people, while in Scorpio it’s about Inspirational New Projects that have Deep Meaning for you. In Sagittarius you’re likely to be Opening Space for the Unknown to occur.

🌅 Asteroid Nemesis, which we might Experience as Guilt if we don’t Let Go of it, and as Ego Death if we do, has been in Scorpio since October 2020, wherein we’ve probably taken Guilt and Ego Death very seriously. It moved into Sagittarius 21 January, where we’ll be highly Motivated to Clear our Guilt Calendar so we can Enjoy Life more while Sea Level is still at bay. We’ll be Letting Go of Guilt till June before Nemesis backs into Scorpio to reprocess the Regrets which have proved Resistant to our efforts to Leave them Behind. We have to Fully Accept Reality As It Is before we can Change it. It returns to Sagittarius in August and in November moves on into Capricorn.

🌅 Asteroid Moira is named after the Goddess of Fate herself. It symbolizes that ancient mental masturbation about whether Fate or Free Will characterizes our Planet. It’s like when the Heart and Brain were arguing over which of them was more indispensable, when in walked the Anus. All Either/Ors are artifacts of the Observing Mind, because Reality doesn’t include Either/Ors, just Both/Ands. The difference between Fate and Free Will is Consciousness. When we’re Conscious of our “Fate” (ie, our Karma or pre-birth Habit Patterns) we can Choose Otherwise.

Moira entered Capricorn in November, wherein Pragmatism was likely to rule and we hopefully Discerned quite a bit of Karma and scheduled it for Change. In Aquarius, which it entered on 22 January but in which it only remains for two months before moving on to Pisces, we’re likely to be working on Changing our Social Habits, softening some Boundaries and stiffening others. The recent shift where the urge to Pale Supremacy managed to criminalize itself is undoubtedly a prime example. Even if it ends up swept under the rug again, every episode like this one weakens the Karmic Pattern.

🌅 Speaking of Karma (it’s always Listening!), asteroid Karma backed into Leo on 22 January. It’s been in Leo since September, but began visiting Virgo in November. When Karma’s in Leo we work on our Unconditional Self-Love. In Virgo we just Surrender (Willingly or otherwise) our Self-Doubt to Ego Death. Our remedial work in Leo lasts till June, then we finish Virgo in the following three months. It would behoove us to Reframe Self-Doubt as a signal to Poor-Sweetheart ourself, instead of a signal to go into the mind and figure out why we’re so inferior.

🌪️ Then there’s Moon Out of Bounds, when the Moon moves more Northerly than the Sun’s Northern Solstice and we become more Emotional than usual. It’s subtle, because we attribute it to External “Causes” rather than our Internal Reactions. Emotions don’t have Causes. Cause is an Intellectual Concept that Western Civilization has become Addicted to since Isaac Newton got pissed off after Eve hit him in the head with an Apple. The Moon goes Out of Bounds at 7:10 pm PST on 24 January, till 6:53 pm PST on 27 January. It’s Stationary, as it turns around to head back South, on 26 January at 7:40 am PST. While it’s Out of Bounds it spans 22 Gemini through 30 Cancer, Standing Still at 11 Cancer.

🌅 On 26 January, Haumea Stands Still Conjunct Klotho, but we’ll have been Feeling this Urge to Reboot all week already. We’re intending to dedicate a post to this Station soon.

🌅 On 27 January Chariklo moves into Aquarius. Chariklo isn’t just another asteroid, but a dwarf planet with a 63-year orbit, so this is a Big Deal. Chariklo is about Self-Confidence and Self-Doubt. In Capricorn, where it’s been since January 2015, we’ve had the tools (Capricorn’s Practicality) to effectively address and Reject Self-Doubt, but we’re more likely to have followed the Cultural Folly of our Programming and gone into our Mental Labyrinth seeking “Reasons” that we might be able to “Correct,” simply because that’s our Cultural Karma. Self-Doubt is an Emotion, so seeking Reasons is like looking under the streetlight for the keys that we lost back in the woods, because the Light’s better under the streetlight. Like Despair, Self-Doubt is another prime candidate for Poor-Sweethearting.

Chariklo stays in Aquarius till February 2028, except for a short Capricorn debriefing in September-November 2021 and a preview of Pisces in April-July 2027. Chariklo in Aquarius is likely to Challenge our Codependence, as we may be in the Habit of Confusing Social Approval with Self-Confidence. 5D won’t work unless we all Contribute our Heart’s Truth without Diminishing or Intimidating anyone else’s Heart’s Truth (we’re fresh from a four-year lesson from a Master about how NOT to do this). So we may have to Work on ourself, and solicit Help from others, to Learn to have complete Confidence in our own Heart’s Truth without hedging it to protect or flatter anyone else’s Ego, and without Hesitating out of Caution or Fear, as some of us may have been doing for the last four years living under the shadow of an Abusive Tyrant wannabe.

🌅 Then on 28 January asteroid Sappho (symbolizing Unconditional Self-Love) moves into Capricorn until April 2021, from Sagittarius where it’s been since November 2020. Since November we’ve been Letting Go of Impediments to our Unconditional Self-Love. Now we’ll turn the tides and begin Learning new ways to Enhance our Self-Love. While Sappho in Capricorn is short-lived, its timing is obviously a booster for the entrance of Chariklo into Aquarius.

If nothing else we can work on the Habit of quickly Poor-Sweethearting ourself (and then of course Changing the Subject) every time we Notice that we’re touching Self-Doubt or Hesitating to Speak our Truth because of Codependence or Caution. We don’t need to practice Taking Risks to Speak our Truth when it’s Dangerous. Every time we Poor-Sweetheart ourself we shift our Identity, and once we’ve shifted it enough times we’ll find ourself Speaking Up with Full Authority and without Coercion, as we simply get Grounded in our own Truth. When our Languaging doesn’t Coerce and our Authority is Grounded, our Presence will be Strong enough that Danger is no longer an issue. As my First Teacher used to say, “When your Body is Filled with your own Energy, no one can Invade you.”

🌅 Finally, at 3pm PST on 29 January, Out-of-Bounds asteroid Eurydike (Trust) reaches its Northernmost extent at 29 Degrees North and Stands Still as it turns around to head South again. It’s at 18 Cancer when it Stations. I expect we’ll be more Intensely Experiencing whatever Trust Issues we may be Working with, for the week or so prior to the 29th. A likely time for this Experience to peak would be the neighborhood of 9pm PST 26 January, when the Out-of-Bounds Moon crosses the Out-of-Bounds Eurydike. The crossing is in longitude, at 19 Cancer – the Moon will be only 25 Degrees North, four Degrees South of Eurydike. That would be approximately overhead at Havana Cuba and Fort Lauderdale Florida, or Dhaka Bengladesh and Lhasa Tibet. Your 19-Cancer natal planets may be jumping up and down and shouting for your Attention.

Soul Descending

January 14, 2021

Uranus in Taurus represents Soul (Uranus) Descending into Matter (Taurus). In my personal Experience, the influence of a planet is greatest when it’s Stationary, as Uranus is now. Most folks use a slightly different approach, considering a planet’s impact to be “normal” while it’s Direct, and a bit suppressed while it’s Retrograde. I don’t dispute that at all, it’s just not something I’ve noticed having a big impact in my own Life. I’m probably just not Sensitive to it. But if we assume that Perspective, then as Uranus turns Direct at 12:35 am PST on 14 January 2021, we might Expect Soul’s “Attack” on Matter to resume. It’s hardly an actual Attack, but to the Ego that’s being Muscled Aside, it can Feel that way.

After a brief toe-dip in June-August 2018, Uranus entered Taurus “for good” (ie, till it gets to Gemini) on 6 March 2019. That’s nine months before the kakavirus was first published, though I know a few people in the US who were “sicker than they’ve ever been,” a typical description of the kakavirus, earlier than December. Even if the initial timing isn’t to the day, the kakavirus is a good candidate for a Uranus-in-Taurus Effect, as it seems to do an excellent job of severely impacting the Olde Ego and making room for a new one (if we can find a way to be Comfortable with the intervening Confusion), often one with a drastically different job description.

As it Stands Still now, Uranus is joined by Mars (Action) and Lilith (Self-Sovereignty), Macho and Facho Energies, as befits an Androgynous Soul. The Either/Or Dualistic mind likes to think there has to be a Battle between “Opposites” and a Winner. Or, with a Buddhist Touch, a Balance between them. The Both/And Perspective suggests that we Maximize both. The Hypermale and the Hyperfemale Dance well together as long as they Avoid Competition and instead Choose Cooperation, Coordination, Collaboration, and Community. We could call it 5C instead of 5D.

With Lilith representing the Hyperfemale, Venus seems kind of Left Out, and Challenged (Squared) by Chiron as well. Even without the Square, Chiron represents a Challenge to Victimhood…

What a week! I got this far, and tried to write more about fifteen times, to no avail. Once the Station Trance Let Go and it felt like I could write, I promptly discovered that I’d left half of the planets off of my charts, and I have no idea how that happened. I can blame the debilitating Ego Deaths on Uranus, and the Hallucinations on preparations for the Fairy Congress this weekend, but I’m seldom so clearly instructed not to write, and seldom so persistent at trying to anyway. No regrets, though. I got to go out this afternoon, and I was Hyperventilating the whole time, I was so Excited. I have no idea why.

Because I got to go outside? Because I got to buy ten pounds of fresh-caught True Cod from our local Hypermonger? Because the Colors were so Vivid? Thankfully I don’t always have to look for Reasons for Emotions, but they can make a person Wonder! I actually wondered if those Sunset-painted clouds were Luminescent, they were so Bright and Colorful, but they clearly weren’t that high in altitude or latitude. It must have been me that was high, but on what? It felt like LSD, but even though I felt like I was in a Bubble, I was fully “In Control.” And then the nascent Crescent Moon popped out between a Tree and a Cloud. Must be the Fairies.

So here’s the Uranus Station chart, with all the planets this time. It’s a lot Busier than it was earlier in the week…

Venus is no longer so alone, as the Climate Change Twins Pholus (Willingness to Respond) and Quaoar (our Survival Instincts) have joined her, and newbie Makemake (Manifestation) converts her naked Square to Chiron into a red-triangle T-Square. What springs to mind about that is, “What hath God wrought?” but I don’t think it’s God doing the wroughting, I think it’s us. We are Creator Beings, and we Create whether we’re Conscious of what we’re Creating and why, or not. In The Nature of Personal Reality, Seth said that it’s Easy to know our Karma, because it’s writ large in our Personal History.

It’s also Easy to know our Unconscious, because it’s wrought large in what we are Creating, if only we’d take Ownership (Pholus) of it. If we don’t like what we’re Creating in our Life, we have to get to know our Unconscious Persona that is Creating it. Of course it’s all Co-Creation, so Forget about Blame. Now the naked Square that remains, connects Juno (Growth in Consciousness) with newcomer Gonggong (Intrusive Memories). That’s not Radical, but it suggests that it’ll behoove us to Listen Up! If we want Hooves.

We noticed that asteroid Vesta (Unconscious Beliefs) was at the Far Midpoint between Venus and Chiron in their Square, making a Mjölnir (Lightning, Illumination, Breaking Out of Darkness). And with Chiron inviting Venus to Own her Victimhood, we’re wondering where Eris (Revelation of What’s Been Denied) is, that Mistress of Female Victimhood. Turns out Eris (which is Stationary [Strong]) is five Signs (Quincunx) from Vesta, and they make a whole ‘nother Uranus-Station chart…

These plus-or-minus 22-Degree planets are a half-Sign from the original plus-or-minus 7-Degree Uranus-related planets. An Octile (one eighth of the Circle) is a Sign-and-a-half, so mixing and matching these two sets of planets yields a lot of Octiles…

In fact, it makes a Grand Octile, and without any Vacancies or added asteroids or Stars or Zulu Goddesses! A Grand Octile is eight planets more or less equally spaced around the Zodiac. The Octile means Adjusting and Rebalancing. And a Grand Octile means Adjusting and Rebalancing into Wholeness. In Ego-Defending astrology, Uranus symbolizes Disruption. In Ego-Rebirthing astrology, Uranus symbolizes Disruption of everything that is no longer in Harmony with the Descending Soul. As a reader so aptly put it today,

“I am doing well, or ‘well enough’ with all of the massive, daunting, continuous incoming energies to process !!Jeez, who turned up the momentum of the momentous-ness 💥!!! It is like we are rising and deepening simultaneously and it’s hard to pay attention to both directions without getting pulled apart. So, my resolution to a solution is the time honored wisdom of ‘be in the moment’ and that seems to be the the only way out of the pressure 💚.”

Eris, Pluto-Moira, and the New Moon

January 11, 2021

If we take the 10 January 2021 Pluto-Moira Initiation chart (Addiction to Karma), which is also the 10 January Eris Station chart (Opening Up to Denial), and we peel the Moon off of asteroid Sappho and plunk it down atop the Sun (and Moira and Pluto), we get the 8:59 pm PST 12 January New Moon chart. The Eris Station chart applies mostly to the week prior to 10 January but also the week following, and the Pluto-Moira Initiation chart applies for the next five years (or at least the next three-plus years, till the Cycle begins to Wind Down – though that doesn’t mean laggards won’t cling to it). The New Moon chart applies mostly to the two weeks following 12 January, but also, less strongly, to the fortnight after that. In other words, I hope everyone takes the FBI’s warnings seriously, and Joe & Kamala wear their bullet-proof vests at their inauguration.

Eris and Pluto-Moira

January 10, 2021

Here’s the 10 January 2021 (4:40 pm PST) Eris (Revelation of what’s been Denied) Stationary chart…

It features two big Challenges (T-Squares, the red triangles)…

Eris (Revelation of what’s been Denied – eg, Gee, I wonder if those white supremacists are dangerous) itself is the Subject of one Challenge, but it’s Self-Resolving (the green wedge or Finger of the Goddess that also points to Eris makes it a Diamond Star, or Self-Resolving Challenge, because of the blue [Grace] bowl under the base of the T-Square). I’m reading that the white supremacists were shocked when the Capitol Police (most of them) didn’t join them in their Trumpian Delusion of just walking in and taking over the government – that’s Revelation of what’s been Denied, Denied because so many of their hometown cops are pooped out of the same mold as they are.

The other Challenge is a T-Square to Vesta (our Unconscious Limiting Beliefs). Limiting Beliefs can come in all colors and forms. For instance, if we have an Unconscious Belief that I’m one of the Master Race, that Belief may require some Adjustment when we see that not everyone Willingly Agrees to be our Slave. If one still wears one’s Victim Costume close to their Skin though, their Belief that Uncooperative Slaves Must Be Punished will Program them for future Challenges. Unfortunately for the rest of us, it’s Challenges like that which make them Feel Alive, the olde Gimme Liberty (and Sovereignty über alles) or Gimme Death gambit.

The Challenges to our Unconscious Beliefs revolve around an apparent Contrast (Opposition in the base of the T-Square) between our Instincts (Moon) about Self-Love (Sappho) and their superficial correlate I’m the Best! and our Intuitions (Asbolus) about What’s Possible (dwarf planet Chaos). Our Macho and Facho Reactions to What’s Possible can be Angry and Defensive (or Offensive) because those Intuitions are Scary, and we’ve made a communal Vow with our white-skinned Buddies that we’ll never Back Down from Fear. Most males don’t get past age 6 without being Required to make such a Vow. However, we know that I’m the Best! isn’t Unconditional Love, because it contains the Condition in it’s title – if Self-Love requires Superiority, it’s hardly Unconditional.

While the Challenge to Eris itself if Self-Resolving – so we usually wouldn’t give it more Attention, the issues surrounding it (as indicated by the base of the T-Square) are worthy of more consideration. On one side of this Opposition is asteroid Eurydike, signifying Trust, namely Whom do we Trust? On the other side is the Stellium (three or more planets Conjunct) comprised of the Sun, asteroid Moira, and Pluto. The Sun meaning Our Essence, this sounds significant. Moira’s namesake was the Greek Goddess of Fate. Fate is what happens to us when we aren’t Conscious of our Karma or don’t Realize that we can Change it. Pluto of course stands for what we can Manipulate to our Advantage, but not Avoid.

The makes the five-year Moira-Pluto Cycle pretty fundamental. Every Cycle provides a new Opportunity to move away from Victimhood and toward Self-Sovereignty. The Eris Station chart is also the chart for the brand-new Moira-Pluto Cycle that Initiated 3:03 am PST 10 January 2021. The only variation is that the Moon doesn’t Conjoin asteroid Sappho in the Pluto-Moira Initiation chart. Just looking at the Sabian Symbol of the 25-Capricorn Initiation is very Instructive.

The just-finished 18-Capricorn Cycle was about “The Union Jack flag flies from a British warship” – Empire. The threat of Autocracy, and the destruction of the Alliances and Trade Conventions of the previous three-quarters of a Century have dominated our Political Economy over the last five years. The new 25-Capricorn Cycle will be about “A store filled with precious Oriental rugs,” threatening a return to the WTO-style “Globalization” that made it legal for your neighbor to sue you for the income that they “lost” because you wouldn’t let them cut down the Tree in your front yard and sell it for lumber or pulp. Let’s hope Biden can avoid Obama’s gross 2009 error in handing over the American Economy to those who had just destroyed it, so they could print billions of dollars and hand them out to their friends and family in the feigned hope that a few would “trickle down” to the plebeians who build their yachts.

Beyond the Sabian Symbols, the first thing to notice about the new Moira-Pluto Cycle is that the most important planet in its birth chart is the Self-Resolving Challenge of a Stationary Eris. That tells us that George Floyd and Brian Sicknick are just the beginning of the Revelations that will force many people to Examine their Self-Abusive and Other-Abusive Habits and get Conscious enough to make Changes. We could even see long-standing Addictions suddenly take a Holiday or move to another state.

Speaking of Changes in Habits, asteroid Atropos, which is all about segments of Karma that finish their natural terms and, unlike the Antichrist, agree to move along cooperatively. On 12 January, Atropos backs out of Leo into Cancer, thereby shifting its Attention from Habits of Pride to Habits of Compassion. The following day, 13 January, asteroid Aletheia, Truth of the Heart, backs out of Aries and into Pisces, so we’ll be moving our Heart-Focus from the Spritual to the Emotional. There may well be cross-pollination here, as newly Revealed Emotional Truths facilitate breaking old Identity Patterns to Soften Self-indulgent elements of our Persona.

Meanwhile, Uranus (Our Soul) Energy has taken over the Foreground, and will Reign Supreme till 12:35 pm PST 14 January. Ego-Protecting Astrology sees Uranus Energy as Disruptive. We regard it as Disrupting whatever in our Karmic Habit Collection no longer Serves our Soul’s Purpose. In Taurus, the Soul’s Purpose is to Descend into Flesh. If you get hit with even more Disruption than 2020 dealt out, look for the Platinum Lining.

January 2021a

January 7, 2021

In our next astroadventure, Emotions heat up (they evidently weren’t hot enough already), as the Moon (our Instincts) moves Out of Bounds over the Southern Hemisphere,

from 4:28 pm PST 10 January at 23 Sagittarius,

till 8:48 am PST 13 January at 30 Capricorn.

Which means it will be Dancing with (assume each Excitation will be Lit Up for a half-day or more before the time indicated, peaking at the time indicated)…

…..Headquarters (the Galactic Center, 28 Sagittarius, 11th 1am PST) – be Open to Receiving New Inputs from your Guides),

…..Our Hidden and perhaps Forbidden Genius (Ixion, 1 Capricorn, 11th 6am PST) – Potentially Extreme Creativity,

…..A Newly Softened View of Global Warming (Venus, Pholus, and Quaoar, all in 5 Cap, 11th, noon-2pm PST) – Nothing Changes Till We Accept It Exactly As It Is after all,

…..Self-Sovereignty and Codependence (Hylonome, 18 Cap, 12th, 11am PST) – What Do I Want, For Myself?,

…..Our Essence (the Sun, 23 Cap, 12th, 3pm PST) – Whoa, That used to be Me, but it ain’t no more!,

…..Our Compulsions (Pluto, 25 Cap, 12th, 11pm PST) – a Good Time to Lovingly Embrace an Addiction and Set It Free (don’t worry, we never Give Up our Habits/Skills, we just Learn to Choose when and how to use them), and

…..Our Self-Confidence and Self-Doubt (Chariklo, 26 Cap, 13th, 7am PST) – a Good Time to Lovingly Embrace Self-Doubt and Set It Free.

That’s very busy, but each is a Window into that portion of our Psyche. If you have a natal planet in the Degree indicated or the Degree on either side of it, the Illumination is likely to be longer and brighter.

This Exaggeration of our Instincts Culminates (Stands Still) in 12 Capricorn at 12:20 am PST 12 January before it turns to head North again (which means most of the impact will occur on the 11th, at least in PST). The main Issue here is Respect for All Things (the Kite to asteroid Hopi) and alas, it’s Opposite, Disparagement of All Things Except Our Own Overinflated Ego. The list above lacks a 12 Capricorn because there are no other “Transiting” (in the Sky Now) planets there in Capricorn (Hopi is Opposite, in Cancer), but if you have a natal planet in 11-13 Capricorn, there could be Fireworks…

Let me know if you do Experience anything unusual on the 11th or 12th, particularly if it has anything to do with Unicorns or Rainbows. I’ve never seen anyone pay Attention to these kinds of Stations (planets Standing Still in the North-South dimension instead of the East-West dimension), so I have no idea if they’re inconsequential, undiscovered, or just something I’ve missed. Probably the former.

If we Choose to use the Opportunity to Let Go of Karma, we should find easy sledding Letting Go of Patterns that Impede our Self-Sovereignty (Moon-Lilith-Orcus Grand Trine [Dumb-Luck Grace, or Arrogance]). Should we instead Choose to continue to Blame Others for our own repeating Karmic Patterns and Harden our Victim (the Poor Sweetheart), we’ll shy away from the Challenging Boundary (Pallas [Boundaries] Square to Lilith [Self-Sovereignty]) and Loyalty (Nessus [Power Balance] Opposite Orcus [Oath-Breaking]) Work necessary to Shift our Persona. A good time to Pray for Pence’s Soul, for our own Good, whether he “Deserves it” or not. He has the Power to use the 25th Amendment to put the Antichrist out to Pasture, or better yet the Feedlot.

We can make Easy Work of these Boundary Issues by, of all things, Focusing on Rainbows (asteroid Mbabamwanawarese, named after the Zulu Goddess of Rainbows Mbaba Mwana Warese, completes the Grand Sextile [Great Grace if we take the first step] and a Diamond Star to Pallas [Self-Resolving Challenges around our Boundaries, which might otherwise Betray our Self-Sovereignty], which otherwise Squares Lilith).

Peaking 12 hours before the Moon leaves the building (goes Out of Bounds), at 4:50 am PST 10 January, is a major Revelation of what we’ve been Denying (Station of dwarf planet Eris). The outrage over the 6 January storming of the Bastille by the Barbarians may or may not be another Political Sham, though the Congresspeople appear to be genuinely offended that their furniture was broken.

I suspect that this is close to the Reality…

“When [a Black Lives Matter activist] helped organize protests after the March 13 killing of Breonna Taylor, Louisville police responded with batons, stun grenades and tear gas. They still bear scars from rubber bullets fired at close range. So they were startled and frustrated Wednesday to see a White, pro-Trump mob storm the U.S. Capitol — breaking down barricades, smashing windows and striking police officers — without obvious consequence.

” ‘Our activists are still to this day met with hyper-police violence,’ they said. ‘And today you see this full-on riot — literally a coup — with people toting guns, which the police knew was coming and they just let it happen. I don’t understand where the ‘law and order’ is – this is what white supremacy looks like.’ They and other activists across the country, who spent much of 2020 facing off with law enforcement officers while protesting police brutality and racial inequality, watched with a mixture of outrage and validation as the president’s supporters stormed the Capitol building during sessions of the House and Senate…

“[A resident of] Portland OR said they were among dozens of people who were tear-gassed and beaten by federal officers as they stood this summer in a park close to a federal courthouse in their hometown protesting the choking death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. ‘We never once tried to get into the federal building,’ they said. ‘We faced off with people who looked like troops. They were dressed for war. They were in armored vehicles. And today I’m watching bike cops riding up.” —https://www.washingtonpost.com/national-security/activists-contrast-treatment-blm-pro-trump-mob/2021/01/06/a59a5a0e-506a-11eb-bda4-615aaefd0555_story.html

Then there’s Global Balming, a Planet that’s rapidly becoming unlivable from Pollution for Profit, massive Inequality in Economic Opportunity, and many other places where the Body Politic might well gain from an Opening Eye. And on the personal level, be Watchful for Repetitions of Lifelong Bummers, as your Unclaimed Karma gives you another Opportunity to look behind the curtain to see which of your Estranged Personas is making a pitiful Trumpian Cry for Attention.

Once we get past the Eris peak and into Moon Out of Bounds, we’ll be constantly Confronted with our Soul, as its Presence (Uranus Stationary) peaks at 12:35 am PST on 14 January. And while we’re Tranced Out by the OOB Moon, we become more Compassionate with our Dying Karma (asteroid Atropos backs into Cancer on 12 January), but also more Attached to it (asteroid Aletheia backs into Pisces on 13 January).

To be continued…

Manifesting Abundance

January 3, 2021

Abundance, according to Catherine Ponder in her 1962 book The Dynamic Laws of Prosperity, means Having Enough to Share. Of course that’s not the only possible definition. The Findhorn Garden for instance quoted the Wormwood Deva as saying something like “You Hu[per]s shy away from Power, but to us, more Power means we can Serve God Better.” Joe Dispenza points out that research by the HeartMath people shows that PIAVAs (Prayers, Intentions, Affirmations, Visualizations, Askings, et al) work much better when they’re Shared from a place of high Energy, such as Joy, Excitement, Gratitude, Love, and the like. I’m reading two recent books by Gay Hendricks, The Big Leap and Conscious Luck, that describe very fast, easy, and effective paths to Abundance – I recommend them highly.

I don’t doubt that this fellow, below, knows what he’s talking about, and if he didn’t mumble into his mustache so much, and was actually trying to Communicate rather than just Express, I’d probably also recommend this Dan Winter video…

As it is, I can only recommend it to folks who’ve played around with the likes of Scalar Energy or the Zero Point Field or Sacred Geometry or Ley Lines or Rife Machines or Distance Healing or Sound Healing or Dowsing or Fractals, or were able to watch last month’s Joe Dispenza video. He defines Ascension differently than we do, but the tiny portions of it that I was able to comprehend, were fascinating. He’s not a Teacher, but if you already know a little about what he’s mumbling about and you’re Patient, you might be able, as I was, to pick up a few more clues about how it all fits together. Many thanks to Casey for sending it.

At any rate, we’re deep into a Lesson on Manifestation (Station of dwarf planet Makemake), peaking 2:35 am 5 January 2021. Or as is often the case, an Opportunity to Explore our Resistance to Manifesting Abundance. Resistance?!? Why would anyone want to Resist Abundance?

I used to think that one factor in Global Warming has been all the times we’ve Complained about how Cold it is, but with Joe’s Insight, maybe Complaining doesn’t work so good because we seldom Complain from a place of high Energy. Besides, maybe we Complain about the Heat as often, especially if we live somewhere warmer than I! The Guardian has published fascinating excerpts from Greta’s mom’s new book about their family’s pre-Protest travails (https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2020/feb/23/great-thunberg-malena-ernman-our-house-is-on-fire-memoir-extract).

We mention this because a symbol for Global Warming (Conjunction [Merging] of dwarf planets Pholus [Willingness and Ability to RespondOr Not] and Quaoar [Our Survival Instincts]) is the primary Challenge (T-Square) in the Makemake Station chart, along with Despair and Powerlessness about it (Chiron [Despair and Miracles], which Opposes Makemake in the base of the T-Square)

The fastest planet here is Chiron, with its 50-year orbit, so this is a long-lasting T-Square or Challenge (roughly April 2018 to February 2022 using 3 Degrees of Sensitivity), it’s just more pronounced here because of the Makemake Station.

Fairy & Human Relations Congress

January 1, 2021

The Fairy & Human Relations Congress, which has been happening Live every summer for the last 20 years in a high meadow on the dry side of the Cascade Mountains in eastern Washington State in the USofA, is holding a 3-day online version 15-17 January 2021, the Fairy & Human Relations Global Congress: Communication & Co-Creation with Fairies, Nature Spirits, Devas & Sidhe. Not to mention Dragons and Sasquaches. I don’t think the following workshop will be held during the Global Congress, but it’s a good example of the kinds of workshops in the Congress. It will be held later in the year, accessible through the Fairy Congress mailing list…

“FAIRY ELEMENTAL MAGIC with Flavia Kate Peters
“Join Flavia Kate Peters, to discover how to work with faeries in conjunction with the elements that govern each and every one of us. Discover how you can connect with the Elemental Kingdom to re-awaken and bring yourself back into alignment with the natural world.

Ending Self-Sabotage 2

October 11, 2020

Most planets “Turn Retrograde,” or Move Backwards, usually annually. They don’t actually go Backwards, it just looks that way from here, because Earth in its orbit is passing the slower planet in its orbit. Because the Earth spins in a perpetual Sufi-Dance, we’d have to take a snapshot of the sky at the same time every night to actually witness the Retrograde planet moving Backwards. This is how a planet crosses the same region of the Zodiac three times, first Moving Forward (or “Direct”), then Backwards, then Forward again.

The first crossing (“Can-Opener”) Opens Issues, the second or Retro crossing (“Exposition”) Expands Upon Them, and the third crossing (“Confidence-Builder”) develops our Confidence that We Can Handle Them ok.

That’s if we’re Conscious that they’re happening. If we aren’t Conscious of them and succumb to Experiencing the Can-Opener as its Victim, we could Experience the second crossing as the Universe Beating us Up Again, make Decisions that we’ll never be Vulnerable to that again, or that we’re going to Retaliate, and Whoosh, we’ve just Created New Karma, new Unconscious Limitations and Negative Expectations.

The Zoning and Timing of asteroid Atropos’s 2020-2021 Retrogradation unfolds like this…

(1) Letting Go of our Sentimental Attachments (Pisces Duad of Cancer – a Duad is 2½ Degrees), 19:30-22:30 Cancer. First crossing 5-14 September 2020, Retro crossing 9 February-10 March 2021, Final crossing 10 March-10 April 2021. Whatever we want to Manifest, we first need Neutrality – we can’t be Attached to Outcomes. Then we need Passion, because the raw material for Manifestation is Emotion. If you think this is Oxymoronic, you need to find some way to make it Paradoxical instead (hint: Mind is Binary, Reality is Multidimensional).

(2) Replacing Emotional Attachments with Spiritual Connections (Aries Duad of Cancer), 22:30-25:00 Cancer. First crossing 14-22 September 2020, Retro crossing 29 January-9 February 2021, Final crossing 10-22 April 2021. Note that the Retro crossing runs the sequence backwards.

(3) Anchoring these Connections into Hardcopy Reality (Taurus Duad of Cancer), 25:00-27:30 Cancer. First crossing 22-30 September 2020, Retro crossing 20-29 January 2021, Final crossing 22 April-2 May 2021. You can start to see the importance of Consciousness – if we rued the ripping out of our Emotional Attachments instead of Recognizing that Change was due, then we could easily have skipped the second step, and now what we Anchor into Hardcopy Reality is not Spiritual Connection, but Blame, and Stewing in our Abandonment. But there’s still time to turn it around.

(4) Standing back and Giving these New Creations their Sovereignty (Gemini Duad of Cancer), 27:30-30:00 Cancer. First crossing 30 September-9 October 2020, Retro crossing 11-20 January 2021, Final crossing 2-11 May 2021. “Your children are not your children / They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself” –Kahlil Gibran.

(5) Re-Discovering Who We Are without these Attachments (Leo Duad of Leo), 0:00-2:30 Leo. First crossing 9-20 October 2020, Retro crossing 2-11 January 2021, Final crossing 11-19 May 2021. “First you must know who you are / Then you must know who she is / Then you must know who you are” –Richard Brautigan.

(6) Letting Go of Who We No Longer Are (Virgo Duad of Leo), 2:30-5:00 Leo. First crossing 20 October-2 November 2020, Retro crossing 21 December 2020-1 January 2021, Final crossing 20-27 May 2021. Time to Kick old Habits that Belonged to Someone Else, someone we used to be.

(7) Meeting what we’ve Spawned, as Equals (Libra Duad of Leo), 5:00-7:02 Leo. First crossing 2-27 November 2020, Retro crossing 27 November-20 December 2020, Final crossing 27 May-2 June 2021. Imagine that you started out on 5 September Focusing on What You Don’t Want, and you weren’t able to Let It Go. Well, the US election is tomorrow. What do you suppose you’ll Manifest?

We started this journey on 5 September, so we’re already at stage 5, Re-Discovering Who We Are.
